[4, including woodcut frontispiece], 190, [2, blank], [12, including 6 woodcut illustrations, one a repeat of the frontispiece]pp. London: Printed for J. How, 1684. 144 x 85 mm. Early sheep, worn, binding separating from text block; preserved in a cloth box. Occasional worming and staining, edges frayed, woodcuts with holes, tears and chips slightly affecting images, last woodcut with marginal loss affecting a few words of text, a few leaves slightly cropped, but a good, unsophisticated copy of a book that was mostly read out of existencce. First Edition. First published at the end of the seventeenth century, Aristotle's Masterpiece (neither by Aristotle nor a masterpiece) was the first sex manual in English, providing its readers with practical advice on copulation, conception, pregnancy and birth.This anonymous, inexpensively printed work proved to be enormously popular: At least three editions were issued by J. How in 1684 (see ESTC and below in our description), and it went through well over 100 editions in the following two centuries.Versions even continued to be published into the early twentieth century, with one appearing as late as 1930! Although Aristotle's Masterpiece was not intended as pornography, its frank discussion of sex and reproduction was seen as unfit for polite society; the book was often issued under false imprints and sold "under the table." The publication history of the work is discussed in some detail in … [Click Below for Full Description]

SOLORZANO, Father Manuel de.
Agaña (Mariana Islands), 25 April 1684. Folio, 4 pp., manuscript in ink on paper, about 1500 words, written in a neat hand; in fine condition preserved in a bookform case by Sangorski and Sutcliffe. An exceptionally interesting manuscript, in which Father Solorzano, a Jesuit missionary in the Mariana Islands, gives news of the work accomplished by the Mariana Islands Mission, and discusses plans for the missionaries to explore and evangelise the southern continent. The plan is clearly reminiscent of Quiros' memorials about seventy years earlier.In the 1660s Spanish Jesuit missionaries set out to colonise the Mariana Islands, which until then had been called the Ladrones - named thus by Magellan for the thievery of the native inhabitants. Father Solorzano was one of the earliest casualties in what became a vicious struggle between the Spanish settlers and the native peoples of the islands: three months after the date of this letter he was killed in a skirmish and became one of the first martyrs.'Meanwhile, Duchess Maria d'Aveiro, who had already more or less adopted the mission, saw to it that the necessary flow of ducats was continued from Madrid to the Marianas. She was repaid with abundant letters full of detailed information on the Church's progress in those regions. Her archives, which must have been a historian's goldmine, contained many manuscripts dealing with ecclesiastical and colonial affairs. In 1923, however, they were sold to Maggs Brothers and subsequently dispersed...' (Francis X. Hezel).This is one of that small series of letters written by Solorzano to the … [Click Below for Full Description]

Leibniz, G. [W.]
. Leipzig, Christopher Gunther for J. Grossium, and Christoph Breitkopf for J. Gleiditsch, 1684. Small 4to. [19,7 x 15,3 cm]. pp. 467-473 and one plate (Tab. XII) for the article. Contemporary half vellum over boards with title written in contemporary hand on the spine.l The 1684 volume with Leibniz's famous article on differential calculus in an exceedingly rare, unrecorded state. Dibner: "First printing of this epochal work. (...) Fifteen years after Newton's first work in fluxions and nine after his own independent discovery, Leibnitz published the above, his first announcement of the differential calculus". It is known that two distinct issues exist, and this is an unrecorded third, but certainly not latest. In the Norman copy, page 467 is in an uncorrected setting (known now as the first state), with quite a few printing errors in the mathematical formula. In the copy described in Dibner's "Heralds of Science" (previously recognized as a first issue), the page is entirely reset, with corrections, but is obviously now recorded as the second 'state' or 'issue'. Our copy is similar to the Norman copy, with page 467 in an uncorrected state. However, in our copy the plate next to page 467 differs from both Norman and Dibner: the letters "M. Oct" are printed at the top of the sheet underneath the plate number. What we have here thus, is yet another issue of the work and it is still unclear which one is the true first. It is, however, not unthinkable that this is the true first issue, since there would be little reason to add "M. Oct" to the plate if it was issued at a later … [Click Below for Full Description]

Prima edizione. Cm.24x16,7. Pg.(8), 253, (1). Legatura in piena pergamena rigida, con titoli manoscritti al dorso a cinque nervature. Al frontespizio, impresso in rosso e nero, incisione calcografica con stemma della Crusca e il relativo motto "Il più bel fior ne coglie". Fuori testo ritratto del Redi inciso da Adrianus Halluech su un dipinto di Justus Supterman. In fine 26 tavole, due delle quali in grande formato, con numerose figure di raccapriccianti parassiti o organi di animali. Minime spellature ai margini. Tagli spruzzati. Buon esemplare, su carta greve. Le prime e le ultime carte sono interessate da pronunciati aloni bruniti. Volume di particolare interesse in quanto completo del ritratto dell'Autore, sovente mancante. Francesco Redi (Arezzo, 1626 ? 1697), naturalista, medico e letterato, compì gli studi a Firenze e a Pisa, laureandosi in Filosofia e Medicina, per poi entrare al servizio dei Medici. Fu arciconsolo della Crusca dal 1678 al 1690, partecipando ai lavori della terza edizione del "Vocabolario" e fu tra i fondatori dell'"Accademia del Cimento". Nominato archiatra del Granduca Ferdinando II, lasciò vari importanti studi tanto letterarari quanto scientifici, e morì a Pisa nel 1697. "I suoi studi, fra i quali quelli intorno alla generazione spontanea e al veleno delle vipere, rivestono particolare importanza nella storia della scienza moderna, per la loro opera di demolizione di alcune teorie di stampo aristotelico a favore di un'attività sperimentale e per la loro applicazione in campo medico di una pratica terapeutica di impostazione ippocratica, costruit … [Click Below for Full Description]

Sig?enza y G?ngora, Carlos de.
Mexico: Juan Ribera, 1684. Small 4to. [12], 206 ff., coat of arms. Polymath" is the term most often applied to Siguenza y Gongora (1645–1700), and indeed he was a cosmographer, philosopher, chronicler, poet, biographer, historian, cartographer, and priest. Here he is wearing the hats of a chronicler and a biographer, as he, "an intellectual friend of Sor Juana [Ines de la Cruz] and at the same time a man of science and religiosity, [writes] the history of the convent of Jesus Maria and the biography of some of its notable nuns." His Parayso occidental is "a classic example of baroque[-era] writing on the monastic life of nuns [in Mexico]" (both quotations from Lavrin, p. 205). As such, the volume is important; and even apart from its association with the Spanish world's Tenth Muse," it is => a basic starting place for the study of nuns, the economics of nunneries, and the political life of the same. As is increasingly the case with Mexican imprints of the 17th century, it is => little found in the marketplace. Provenance: 18th-century ownership signature on title-page and first leaf of preliminaries of the Conde del Fresno de la Fuente. Medina, Mexico, 1328; Palau 312973; Asuncion Lavrin, "Cotidianidad y espiritualidad en la vida conventual novohispana: Siglo XVII," in Memoria del Coloquio Internacional Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz y pensamiento novohispano (1995).

As is our custom the grade may be thought of as a compromise between the newish hardcovers and the understandably aged text, hopefully the listed attributes will answer for specifics.This is a large format pamphlet placed in hardcovers, and has no frontispiece, the original text commences with the title page followed by the 1st page of text, collation code 'B'. Text concludes at page 67, final collatition on page 65 code 'S'. It is preceded and followed by tan replacement endsheets. The text, with predictable waviness and minor foxing is mildly age darkened at what look to be its natural, uncut (post assembly) edges. Title page has postage stamp size section missing at lower corner, text has the odd mild stain and corrected dog ear, all fairly mild. Title page also has edge flecking/edge darkening, and more mildly so, the sheet following.There is much variation in the finished size of the leaves (perhaps 1/16th inch) and surely as made.

HASIO/HAAS, Johann Matthias
Nuremberg: Homann Heirs. Map. Engraving with hand coloring. Image measures 18 x 21.5". This decorative map of Africa provides then-contemporary knowledge about the coastal regions of the continent. Beginning with the example of J.B. Homann's 175 map of Africa, Haas then added additional cartographic information gleaned from the work of French cartographers Delisle and D'Anville. Significant details include the distinct regions of Egypt, Nubia and Abyssinia, the inclusion of Lake Nyasa as Lac Marawi, and the labeling of the Congo and the Dutch settlements of Castell Batov and Stellenbosch at the Cape. However, the map%u2019s most striking feature is its cartouche, a scene of Europeans and Africans interacting that fills the lower left corner of the map. Lions another indigenous animals resting in the foreground suggest this scene is a peaceful one, characterized--somewhat ficticiously--by cooperation and understanding rather than warfare. Table Bay and Table Mountain in Capetown are visible in the distance. With its incorporation of a descriptive text, the cartouche demonstrates how Europeans viewed Africa as an exotic land of both intrigue and potential. The map is in very good condition with no chips or tears. Overall clean impression. Johann Matthias Haas (1684-1724) was a mathematician, astronomer, and cartographer. He published many of his maps under the firm of the Homann Heirs, who carried on the work of mapmaker Johann Baptist Homann. This map illustrates the European view of African in the early part of the 18th century.
