Gut erhaltener Pergamentband d. Zeit, mit Rückenbeschriftung v. alter Hand, Buchschnitt rot gefärbt, etwas fleckig, Buchblock in gutem Zustand. Mit e. Besitzervermerk v. alter Hand (Bibl. Burckhard Helmstadii 1764) am vorderen Innendeckel.. BLC 6,157. Hirsch 1,110. Ferguson: Bibliographical notes on histories of invention and books of secrets 5,6ff. - A (1657-1712), niederländischer Gelehrter, Professor für Medizin, Geschichte u. Griechischen Sprache, erklärt in vorliegendem Werk, dass die meisten zeitgenössischen medizinischen Entdeckungen bereits in der Antike bekannt waren und erstellt im zweiten Teil des Werkes mit eigenem Titelblatt u. eigener Zählung "Rerum Inventarum Onomasticon" eine alphabetische Aufstellung jener Entdeckungen u. der dazugehörigen Zitate. A., der mütterlicherseits aus der Familie der bedeutenden Amsterdamer Druckerfamilie Janssonius stammte, verfügte sichtlich auch über ausgedehnte bibliographische Kenntnisse. Die "Inventa nov-antiqua" von Ferguson als "remarkable contribution to the history of discovery" bezeichnet, spielten zweifellos ihre Rolle in der zeitgenössischen Kontroverse ("Battle of Books") um wissenschaftliche Entdeckungen bzw. die wissenschaftliche Revolution als solche.

[Japanese Hand-Coloured Wood-Block Printing]; [Maps and Atlases]; [Tokyo Map] Hyoshiya Ichirobe
Edo [Tokyo]: Hyoshiya Ichirobe (Hayashi-shi Yoshinaga), First month, 1684 (But Third month, 1680). A large woodcut map of Edo (Tokyo) with fine handcolouring, on joined and folded paper. The map is breathtaking in its detail and features many paintings of important landmarks, temples, bridges and people, who are often pictured working or fishing from boats on the waterways running through Tokyo. A stunning and very rare woodblock map beautifully and unusually handcoloured. Roads, blocks, buildings, open areas, canals and waterways, are all vividly laid out on this huge and most impressive map. 123.5 by 149.5 cm., folded within paper covers, folds to 28 by 18 cm, now preserved in a fine clamshell box. A remarkably well preserved and very rare item, with some light rubbing due to age and as to be expected. A bit of old worming or light soiling and occasional small repairs, but in all quite astonishing in its quality and beautifully preserved with bright and vivid colour and detail. AN EXTRAORDINARY ITEM, REMARKABLE FOR BOTH ITS CARTOGRAPHIC DETAIL AND ITS ARTISTIC BEAUTY. The wood block printing shows land tenures of Daimyo and Hatamoto. It also shows temples and shrines, includes a distance chart and descriptive listing of Daimyo showing crests and halberds. There is also a inset of the eastern portion of Edo.

DUFRESNOY, Charles Alphonse
Peinture...Traduit en François. Enrichy de Remarques, reveu, corrigé, & augmenté. Troisieme Edition. Engraved vignette on title & 32 plates (incl. an engraved title). 6 p.l., 276 pp.; [62] pp. 8vo, cont. speckled calf (joints at head with very short cracks), dark red morocco lettering piece on spine. Paris: N. Langlois, 1684. Third edition, revised, corrected, and enlarged, of this famous and influential poem on painting in elegant Latin hexameter, translated by Roger de Piles (1635-1709). Dufresnoy (1611-68), a native of Paris, studied painting in Rome and Venice and, upon his return, was engaged to furnish the paintings for the magnificent Château du Raincy. He provided many paintings for the chapel, salons, and pavilion but suffered paralysis after two years and was obliged to retire. The present work was originally published in Latin as De Arte Graphica (1st ed.:1668); the work enjoyed many editions in the 17th, 18th, and early 19th centuries. This edition contains the original Latin text with French translation on facing pages. Written during his Italian sojourn, it embodies Dufresnoy's observations on the art of painting and may be termed a critical treatise on the practice of the art, with general advice to students. The precepts are sound according to the standard of his time though the poetical merits are slender in style (formed chiefly on Lucretius and Horace). Dufresnoy stressed the importance of color as an essential component of artistic beauty. This edition contains in the second part the valuable engravings -- engraved title and 31 plates -- by Sebas … [Click Below for Full Description]

A4 missigned A3. 6-5/8" x 3-7/8". 1st edition (Fulton 159; T.C. II, 129; Wing B-4023). [18], 112, [12] pp. A 11 pp "A Catalogue of late Physick Books sold by Samuel Smith ..." at rear. This of interest to book historians, for all books are priced.. Modern brown half calf with marbled paper boards executed in period style; red morocco spine label. Maroon edge stain. New eps.. Binding - Fine. Text block - VG (last 4 leaves show some edge. 'raggedness' [does not affect text]).. Even though this Boyle work admittedly one of his 'minor' efforts, per Fulton, it remains of interest, for it gives insight "into the author's methods of work. ... On looking into a new subject, Boyle apparently set down methodically the various aspects of the queston which wished to consider, and then 'at odd times and on various occasions' expanded his notes. The same method of presentation and exposition is evident in his 'Humane Blood' and in several of the posthumous publications. Boyle proposed to study all the physical and chemical properties of the various mineral waters, even including such properties as viscosity. Taste, smell, acidity, &c. were of course considered, and the book ends with a discourse on the 'medicinal virtues' of the various waters."

Gio. Battista Tramontin,, Venezia, 1684. Cm. 20,4, mezza perg. coeva, tit. e fregi in oro al dorso, piatti in carta marm. azzurrina, pag. (24) compreso bellissimo antiporta allegorico a p. pag. in rame, 366 (1 c.b.). Un timbro di bibl. estinta al front. ed uno al verso della tav. allegorica (con firma a penna "Spalma", probabilmente apocrifa). Ottimo esemplare. Melzi, vol. 3, pag. 85, ritiene che l'opera sia di mano dello stesso Porroni (Argelati, Bibl. Script. Med., II, 1112). ICCU segnala soli 3 esemplari, catalogati sotto Spalma. Ricordiamo che il Porroni fu autore di un rinomato trattato di Architettura militare (Trattato Universale militare moderno, 1676). L'opera è suddivisa in tre parti: la prima riporta un ampio epistolario con importanti personaggi coi quali il Porroni ha avuto contatto; la seconda è in pratica un trattato di norme cavalleresche da osservarsi da ciascun cavaliere d'onore; la terza parte è la vera e propria apologia al libro "La vita del Conte Bartolomeo Arese Presidente del Senato di Milano", nel quale il Porroni viene diffamato. Interessante, a pag. 350, la presa di posizione in difesa di Giuseppe Francesco Borri, famoso alchimista a quei tempi in prigione a Roma, anch'egli accusato e diffamato nella stessa opera.

Brome, Richard
London : printed for Joseph Hindmarsh, bookseller to His Royal Highness, at the Black Bull in Cornhil, 1684. d. 1652 Quarto, 8.5 x 6.5 inches. Third edition A-H4. This copy is bound in modern green cloth over boards.This play was originally stab sticked, now long perished, it has overall browning but not offensively so. A Jovial crew is play wich adrrsses the possability of a new world providing at least a limited recognition of this socio-economic underside of Caroline England. Our uperclass heroins choose against "a fling to London" to take in the races at Hyde Park, "and see the Adamites run naked afore the Ladies" - but the young women are determined to go in the opposite direction, and join the "stark, errant, downright beggars." They challenge their suitors to join them, and the young men can hardly refuse; they link up with Springlove's band, and enjoy his protection and guidance. It is their "birthright into a new world." " Brome goes farther in A Jovial Crew than most dramatists of his era ever dared. His genteel characters find their comfortable lives intolerably oppressive, and long for liberty and freedom, even that of beggars. The references to the Adamites, and to a Utopia of a new social order, seem to presage the radical social movements of the coming Commonwealth era, the Levellers and Diggers and others. The idealization of the beggars' life, as unrealistic as it is, appears to point to a profound social dissatisfaction.... Brome's A Jovial Crew had links with the theatre and literature of its period, the play also drew upon actual events and th … [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 da … [Click Below for Full Description]

Deak, Picturing America, 1497-1899 (Princeton, 1988), nos. 38, 42. The beautiful map, first published by Claus Janszoon Visscher in the mid-1650s, was a seminal moment in the cartography of New England and New York. With its inset view of New York -- the printed version of the second earliest known view of the city -- it showed Europeans for the first time what New Amsterdam looked like and also provided them with a remarkably precise idea of its geographic context. The map gained such a degree of popularity that Visscher published it for more than twenty years (1655-1677), and a number of his competitors as well as later cartographers continued to produce their own versions of the map as late as the mid-eighteenth century. One reason for the map's long publication life was simply its high quality and accuracy. It is the first printed map to delineate the shape of Manhattan correctly and it represented the summation of all the surveys of New Netherlands conducted by Dutch colonists since their arrival.

Pettit, Edward
London:1684: Printed by B.W. for Edward Vize, at the Sign of the Bishop's Head over against the Royal Exchange in Cornhill. Printed: 1684. fl. ca. 1684 Octavo, 7.2 x 4.32 inches. First edition. A-Q8, R4. An engraved allegorical frontispiece of Charles I slaying the three headed Commonwealth beast is bound opposite the title. This copy is bound in full contemporary speckled English calf, rebacked, with a new label on the spine. Inside the front board is the bookplate of the Woburn Public Library. The pages are clean with wide margins. This edition is bound in its original dark calfskin blind tooled around the borders of the front and back covers. There is an ancient red tooled label in gold affixed to the spine. This is a wild tale, and even a brief quote from the material will reveal the nature of its content... "'You are a railing, prating boy (reply'd he [a politician]) who values your Judgment that have nothing of solid Learning, or substantial Politicks in you? You are a paltry quibbling insignificant Black Coat.' Before I could answer him, Hobbs took courage, and fell in with him pellmell, calling me Pedantical Academick. His University-Learning (said he) has quite spoil'd him, and for want of my reasonings and conclusions, he is no better than a dull pragmatical Ideot. But yonder is a grave serious and Ancient learned man, I will be judg'd by him. Ay! and so will I too (replyed Nevil), For He is one of our Friends, an Holy man, and a good Commonwealths-man, a great Enemy to Tyranny; Ay, to Popery too (said Hobbs)."

Rome: Presso M. Angelo de Rossi, 1684. Second Edition. Hardcover. One of the Earliest Books on Birds, With Extremely Charming Engravings. 286 x 229 mm (11 1/4 x 9"). 5 p.l., 77, [1] pp., [6] leaves (index). Second Edition. Probably 18th century vellum, morocco spine label. Engraved title page with elaborate frame featuring two bird catchers, historiated headpiece, woodcut initials, two vignette tailpieces, and 66 CHARMING PLATES by Tempesta and Villamena (located on the verso of most text pages, with corresponding explication opposite). Schwerdt II, 48-49; Nissen IVB 693; Anker 380; Zimmer II, 475; Wood, p. 499 (mostly citing both ours and the first edition of 1622). Vellum somewhat grubby, a chip out of spine label affecting two letters, very faint browning to a few leaves, isolated trivial soiling, other insignificant imperfections, but an excellent copy, the binding solid, and especially fresh and clean internally. This is the second edition--characterized as "superior to the first" by Schwerdt--of a charming early book on birds, their habits, the methods of catching them, the ways to maintain them in captivity, and their diseases. Anker mentions its first printing (in 1622) as being "one of the earliest works with engraved plates representing birds," and Schwerdt says that the work is "delightful chiefly owing to Tempesta's spirited illustrations of the methods employed by fowlers in the beginning of the 17th century." The plates in our edition are the same as in the first, though four of the illustrations have been re-engraved. The majority of the illustrations fea … [Click Below for Full Description]

DU VAL, Pierre (1618-1683)
Paris 1684 - Engraved with period outline colour. Good condition, expertly repaired split at centerfold and parallel tear from the base. Mild toning due to age. Small crease lower left. Pierre Duval was Nicholas Sanson's nephew, and his work was primarily editing and augmenting Sanson's innovative cartography. He and Hubert Jaillot were most important in bringing Sanson's work to the world, both in improved editions and in bringing to print previously unpublished manuscripts. This map of Asia bears the characteristic clarity and more "scientific" air of the 17th-century French map. Though many sites are mis-located, a vast amount of material has been examined and assessed. Most placenames represent geographical entities that currently exist or once existed. The rendition of the lower islands of Japan and the peninsula of Korea are improved over earlier studies. Details of the Great Wall of China are also visible. This map, dated 1684, was issued by Pierre's daughter, "Mlle." Duval, the year after his death. Pastoureau, Duval II E, (9).
