        An English dictionary, explaining the difficult terms that are used in divinity, husbandry, physick, philosophy, law, navigation, mathematicks, and other arts and sciences. Containing many thousands of hard words ... Together with the etymological derivation of them from their proper fountain, whether Hebrew, Greek, Latin, French, or any other language

      London: printed for Peter Parker, at the Leg and Star over against the Royal Exchange in Cornhil, 1685. Fourth edition, sm. 8vo, pp. [8] plus unpaginated lexicon in triple column, genuine first and final blanks present; a clean and fairly crisp copy in full contemporary calf, rubbed and worn, a few small chips out on the spine, but sound. Coles (?1640-1680) was the author of a number of "useful and necessary books for the instruction of beginners," among which were his popular A Dictionart English-Latin and Latin-English (London, 1677) which was still in use in schools even after the arrival of Ainsworth's Thesaurus in 1736; and An English Dictionary (London, 1676). "Still in the "hard words" tradition, Coles included thousands of "old words," obsolete ones from Chaucer's day. His dictionary contained twenty-five thousand words, eight thousand more than the last, augmented edition of Phillips. He shortened Phillips' already brief definitions in order to include more words and more etymological information. Coles did break new ground in including cant (thieves' argot) and dialectical terms. These, taken from other specialized dictionaries, had never before been included in a general English dictionary" (Landau, Dictionaries, p. 43). Alston V,66; Wing C-5073.

        Abbregé des metamorphoses ou Fictions poetiques, reduites en questions, pour les curieux de l'Histoire profane, & pour l'instruction de la Jeunesse... Premiere edition.

      Lyon: Pierre Guillimin, 1685. 12mo (144 x 75 mm). [12], 206, [16] pp. Engraved arms of the dedicatee Marin Curty as headpiece, two woodcut initials, type ornaments. A bit dust-soiled. Contemporary French speckled calf, spine gold-tooled, edges red-sprinkled (worn).*** A question-and-answer guide to classical mythology for children, ancestor of the online quiz for 10-year-old mythology nuts. The gods and heroes are listed, in extra-large type, under their Roman names only. "Who was Jupiter? ... What was the fate of Oedipus? ... Why is Janus represented with two faces?" To judge by this work, the pupils of the Grand Siècle were spared neither the philanderings of deities nor the cruelties of mortals. The author was a jurist, diplomat and lexicographer who wrote a natural history of the Antilles and a popular French dictionary (Dictionnaire général et curieux contenant les principaux mots et les plus usitez en la langue françoise), issued the same year as this very rare work for children. A still handy example of the vogue for secular catechisms in late 17th-century France. Rare, no copies in US libraries and a mere handful in France. Cioranescu 59870.

DUFLOS. Grandes marges. TRES RARE ENSEMBLE DES 24 GRAVURES d'après LE TITIEN Et Gravées par Cl. DUFLOS. Vers 1700/1710. On sait peu de choses de ces gravures du Titien. LES PEINTURES ORIGINALES ONT ETE DETRUITES, on ne les connait que pas SADELER et C. DUFLOS. On sait qu'elles furent d'abord peintes à Mantoue et prise dans le sac de la ville puis portés en Angleterre. cf. p.435 des Entretiens sur les vies des Peintres Anciens et Modernes chez Cramoisy 1685. « L'ABECEDARIO de P. J. MARIETTE sur LES ARTS ET LES ARTISTES, t. 5 Paris 1858/1859 p. 435 nous indique : Les portraits des douze premiers empereurs Romains en demy corps en pièces gravées au burin par Gilles Sadeler d'après le TITIEN . Le Titien les avait fait pour Ph. De Gonzague, duc de Mantoue : passés en Angleterre ils y périrent dans les désordres des guerres civiles en 1648. Il furent achetés pour l'Espagne, et ils doivent s'y trouver dans la Collection Royale. Ceux des Douze Impératrices, leurs épouses représentées pareillement en demi corps en 12 pièces gravées au burin par le même G. Sadeler sont d?après les dessins que l'on prétend être du Titien. » Dans la Vie de Jocachim Sandrart, MORERIE fait mention des douze tableaux reproduits par Sadeler. T. 9 p. 134 LAROUSSE nous indique que ces douze tableaux commencés en 1536 pour le salon de Troie au château de Mantoue, puis perdus et dont nous n'avons plus connaissance que par les douze gravures de E. Sadeler. La consultation des Gravures de SADELER nous montre que Cl. DUFLOS s'est directement inspiré pour ne pas dire a reproduit les ouvres de Sadeler. La Collection complète des 24 Gravures est rarissime pour celles du Duflos et inconnue pour celle de Sadeler. Notre Collection du Titien par Cl. Duflos est complète en 24 gravures donne une vision générale des ?uvres du grand Maître. Florent LE COMTE T. III2° ed. 1702 Cabinet des Singularité d?Architecture, Peinture, Sculptures ou Gravure, p. 354 indique que Gilles Sadeler a gravé 160 pièces ou environ des plus beaux qui se voyent dont il y a environ moitié très rare à trouver d?aucun ayant été payéz. » Les Portraits des douze Empereurs et des douze Impératrices d'après le Titien sont Admirablement beau et bien conditionnes.

        Essay of the Great Effects of Even Languid and Unheeded Motion

      , 1685. 1685. BOYLE, ROBERT. An Essay of the Great Effects of Even Languid and Unheeded Motion. Whereunto is Annexed an Experimental Discourse of some Little Observed Causes of the Insalubrity and Salubrity of the Air and its Effects. London: By M. Flesher, for Richard Davis, 1685. 8vo. [8], 123, [5], 95 p. including internal blanks I7-8. Neat modern calf, antique, retaining original front flyleaf with the signature of Mr. Jocelyn. Light dust soiling of first few leaves, else a fine, clean copy. First edition, with the first state title page (without Boyle's name). Boyle's anonymously published work on languid and unheeded motion "gives him a place in the history of thermodynamic concepts. Many passages indicate that Boyle was thinking of a 'mechanical equivalent of heat,' and that he considered heat to be the product of small particles in 'local motion.'" (Norman) It also contains Boyle's re-evaluation of the ultimate particles of which air is composed. The second part on the salubrity and insalubrity of air contains Boyle's observations on the causes of the plague. Fulton 163; Norman 309; NLM/Krivatsy 1715; Wing B3948.

        De Insectis, in Methodum Redactus; cum Notularum Additione. [Metamorphosis Naturalis]

      London S. Smith 1685 - Octavo (180 x 115 mm). Contemporary limp vellum folded over at the fore-edge, handwritten title to spine, edges of text block red speckled. 21 folding engraved plates depicting numerous insects on each plate. Marks, spots, and dulling of the vellum, spine may have been cleaned in the past, hinges a little cracked but holding firm, light spotting and toning at the edges of the leaves, closed tear to the final plate in the addendum which depicts mussels. A very good, unsophisticated copy. Second Latin edition of this "extremely important and influential study" (Jorink, Reading the Book of Nature in the Dutch Golden Age, p. 201), the translation by Fellow of the Royal Society Martin Lister, with his notes and addendum on English species. Originally published in three volumes under the title Metamorphosis Naturalis between 1660 and 1669. The Dutch painter Johannes Goedart (also spelled Goedaert; 1617-1668) was the first European to "embark on a systematic study of the generation of insects" (Jorink, "Between Emblematics and the 'Argument from Design'", Early Modern Zoology, p. 156). Beginning in the 1630s, he painstakingly traversed the countryside around his home in Middelburg, collecting caterpillars and other insect larvae, raising them in glass jars, and carefully observing their "strange transformations". Although Goedart did not make any major scientific advances in entomology or taxonomy - he interpreted his observations within the framework of his religion and was a strong supporter of spontaneous generation - his work is significant for the emphasis it placed on metamorphosis at a time when other natural historians focused on insect life stages in isolation from each other. Additionally, Goedart was innovative in his choice of subjects, including, among the 150 plus species he described, previously neglected groups such as flies, bumblebees, wood lice, and moths out of the conviction that none of God's creatures was to be "despised, but that they are all disposed well and with ineffable wisdom". Also appealing are his detailed and well-executed plates, which depict all the stages of each insect's life-cycle together. Though Goedart's work was criticised by scientists such as Swammerdam, it proved extremely popular among collectors and artists. "Metamorphosis was accessible, entertaining, and attractively illustrated. The work was very widely distributed and was often translated and cited. It was common in Dutch collections of books, but was also popular outside the Netherlands. Goedaert provided a particularly strong impulse for the study of other insects than the usual bees, ants, and butterflies. His accessible books conveyed the same message as the works of Hoefnagel and Aldrovandi, but the contents and distribution of the latter raised their threshold much higher. It is probably to a large extent due to Goedaert that the study and collecting of these creatures began to enjoy a rapidly growing popularity after 1660. Insects, which had been viewed ambivalently since time immemorial, were slowly but surely becoming acceptable in polite society" (Jorink, Reading the Book of Nature, pp. 208-209). This volume is a particularly nice, unsophisticated copy in contemporary vellum with an attractive hand-written title on the spine. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        SEVERAL TREATIES OF PEACE AND COMMERCE CONCLUDED BETWEEN THE LATE KING OF BLESSED MEMORY DECEASED, AND OTHER PRINCES AND STATES.

      London. . 1685 - [4],269,[2]pp. Quarto. Modern half calf and paper boards, gilt leather label. First few leaves (including titlepage) chipped around edges, but generally clean and neat. A very good copy, with wide margins. A copy with a most significant provenance, this copy bears a contemporary manuscript note on the titlepage reading: "Belonging to the Secretary of State's Office. Home Dept." There is also a manuscript table of contents bound in between the titlepage and the page explaining the necessity for the work. The first edition of this collected printing of important British treaties, occasioned by the death of Charles II and containing a number of treaties of importance to America. The 1667 treaties with Spain, France, and the Dutch (Davenport 55, 58, and 57) made Spain for the first time acknowledge England's right to New World colonies, gave New York to the British, and swapped French Caribbean islands for Nova Scotia. Also included are commercial treaties in 1669 and 1670, and the treaties settling the Second Dutch War and again giving New York to the British in 1674 (see Davenport 62, 65, 66, 69, and 70).

Se trata de una auténtica "guerra contra los hombres", el personaje de la locura domina todos los placeres de los hombres, los cuales hablan con ella sin escuchar ni entender a la razón.

        Leaf From An Increase Mather Sermon

      MA, 1685. Paper. Very Good. No Binding. 16mo - over 5¾ - 6¾" tall. Increase Mather (1639 - 1723) was a major figure in the early history of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. He was a Puritan minister who was involved with the government of the colony, the administration of Harvard College, and most notoriously, the Salem witch trials. He was the son of Richard Mather, and the father of Cotton Mather, both influential Puritan ministers. This leaf comes from the hand of the brother of Cotton Mather. Early American printed works, those printed before 1700, are quite rare; the printing was wretched, the paper rough, and the quality of the whole effort poor. In this leaf one can clearly see the struggling American colonies and their efforts to achieve scholorly and religious independence..

        Vera, & fondamentale delineatione della reggia città di Buda con la sincera dichiaratione delli luoghi principali, che in essa vi sono.

      Pittoni, Venezia 1685 - Incisione in rame, mm 286x452 (incisione) su foglio mm 450x610, eseguita su carta vergata con filigrana "tre mezze lune". Dedicata (sotto l'incisione): All'Illustriss. & Eccell. Sig. Vettor Corrado, dignissimo Procurator di S. Marco. Firmata: Humiliss. Devotiss. & Obligatiss. Ser. Gio:Pietro Pittoni. In basso riporta la seguente nota: Venuta ultimamente dal Campo sotto Buda a testimoniare la novità delle notizie trasmesse figurativamente dall'incisione. Riporta inoltre l'indirizzo di Leonardo Pittoni: Si vende In Venetia da Leonardo Pittoni al Ponte de' Beretteri sotto il Portico all'Insegna della Speranza.Questa rara incisione d'occasione raffigura l'assedio di Buda del 1684 da parte delle truppe imperiali durante la controffensiva che seguì al fallito assedio di Vienna del 1683 da parte dei turchi. Si raffigura l'esercito imperiale disposto attorno alla città raffigurata in modo simbolico dalla cinta muraria e da pochi edifici principali. Una ampia legenda è riportata sotto alla stampa con 47 numeri arabi e lettere A-D. Le truppe delle Lega Santa, formata a seguito dello scampato pericolo, a cui partecipava anche la Serenissima, entrarono il 30 giugno nella città di Pest, che poco prima era stata incendiata dai turchi. Dopo che l'armata di Vác aveva riattraversato il Danubio, iniziò, con 34.000 uomini l'assedio di Buda, che era difesa da circa 10.000 turchi con 200 bocche da fuoco, sottoponendo la fortezza a cannoneggiamento. Il 19 luglio le truppe imperiali riuscirono a prendere la parte bassa della città ma poiché le truppe disponibili al momento per occuparla erano poche, il Feldmaresciallo Rüdiger fece appiccare fuoco alle case. Tutti gli attacchi furono respinti dai difensori. All'inizio di settembre il numero dei soldati in grado di combattere era sceso da 34.000 a 12.000 ed inoltre il morale degli assedianti non era il migliore. Solo l'11 settembre, allorché un altro corpo d'armata imperiale giunse in aiuto agli assedianti, questi acquistarono nuovo slancio. Ma il 22 settembre giunse anche un esercito turco di rinforzo agli assediati, che a sua volta passò all'attacco. Questo poté sì essere respinto dagli imperiali, ma l'armata turca di soccorso non poté essere decisamente sconfitta.Le continue azioni di disturbo da parte dell'esercito di soccorso turco e le frequenti sortite degli assediati logorarono infine gli assedianti ed inoltre il feldmaresciallo Ernst Rüdiger dovette essere sostituito. Per tutti questi motivi e per il sopraggiunto cattivo tempo del mese di ottobre, si decise di soprassedere all'assedio e dopo 109 giorni l'armata imperiale si ritirò. Le sortite nemiche, la dissenteria e le epidemie di febbre, gli errori tattici stessi assottigliarono di oltre la metà la forza combattente dell'esercito imperiale. Gli alleati cristiani dopo questa fallita impresa lamentarono perdite di circa 23.000 uomini. Buda verrà comunque conquistata due anni dopo.Bellissimo esemplare a pieni margini con barbe, qualche leggera piega di stampa nei margini. Copper engraving, mm 286x452 (engraved area) on sheet mm 450x610, with watermark "tre mezze lune". Dedicated (under the engraving): All'Illustriss. & Eccell. Sig. Vettor Corrado, dignissimo Procurator di S. Marco. Signed: Humiliss. Devotiss. & Obligatiss. Ser. Gio:Pietro Pittoni. At bottom: Venuta ultimamente dal Campo sotto Buda in order to witness the reality of the described military scenes. It bear salso Leonardo Pittoni' address: Si vende In Venetia da Leonardo Pittoni al Ponte de' Beretteri sotto il Portico all'Insegna della Speranza.This very rare broadsheet illustrates Buda's siege in 1684 by the imperial troops after the defeat of the turcs in front of Vienna storia.

PMM 143 for second ed.) - THIRD EDITION. "Boyle's New Experiments Physico-Mechanical... recounted experiments using a vacuum chamber or 'air pump' which he constructed with the assistance of Hooke. Rejecting the scholastic notion that nature could not tolerate a vacuum, he showed how it was perfectly possible to produce one, and this enabled him to illustrate the characteristics and functions of the air by studying the effects of its withdrawal on flame, light, and living creatures. He also argued that certain characteristics of the air could only be explained in terms of the ingenious hypothesis that it had a certain weight and 'spring'" (ODNB). This edition includes his controversial tracts against Linus and Hobbes, the former provoking an attack to which Boyle wrote a defence that contained 'Boyle's law', first published in the second edition. Very Good.

"Bidloo, professor of anatomy at The Hague, was at one time physician to William of Orange. An English contemporary, William Cowper, furnished his Anatomy of humane bodies almost completely with engravings plagiarized from this book by Bidloo, who promptly and publicly excoriated Cowper in a published communication to the Royal Society. Before the days of copyright, this is one of the most famous instances of plagiarism in the history of medicine...These plates are considered among the finest illustrations of the Baroque period,..." (Heirs of Hippocrates 667). "The value of Bidloo's 'Anatomia' lies chiefly in the 105 fine copperplate engravings drawn by Gerard de Lairesse, and engraved by Pieter van Gunst. These are masterpieces of Dutch baroque art" (Garrison-M). "One of the finest anatomical atlases of the Baroque period. The 105 plates were drawn by the painter Gerard de Lairesse, under whose influence the French style of Poussin and Lorraine became dominant in Holland. For Lairesse, the anatomical illustrations Bidloo asked him to undertake were an occasion for an artistic meditation on anatomy: he displayed his figures in an emotional, almost tender manner, contrasting the raw dissected parts with the full, soft surfaces of uncut flesh, placing flayed, bound figures in ordinary nightclothes or bedding, setting ordinary household objects such as books, jars or cabinets in the same scene as cut-up torsos or limbs, and in one plate showing a fly crawling on an opened abdomen. His illustrations brought the quality of Dutch still-life painting into anatomical illustration, and gave a new, darker spritual expression to the significance of the act of dissection. According to the most recent scholarship, the plates were probably engraved by Abraham Bloteling, inventor of the rocker tool for mezzoprint engraving." (Norman 231) "The book took six years to make, and it was not a best seller, even by 17th-century standards. The publisher probably sold the plates to try to recoup some of his losses. But today, the 100 copies still in existence are the prized treasures of the world's great academic libraries, among them Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard, Yale and Vassar" (Vassar College Libraries). *Wilhelm Gottlieb Tilesius von Tilenau (1769-1857) was a German naturalist, explorer, physician, draftsman and engraver.

"Bidloo, professor of anatomy at The Hague, was at one time physician to William of Orange. An English contemporary, William Cowper, furnished his Anatomy of humane bodies almost completely with engravings plagiarized from this book by Bidloo, who promptly and publicly excoriated Cowper in a published communication to the Royal Society. Before the days of copyright, this is one of the most famous instances of plagiarism in the history of medicine...These plates are considered among the finest illustrations of the Baroque period,..." (Heirs of Hippocrates 667). "The value of Bidloo's 'Anatomia' lies chiefly in the 105 fine copperplate engravings drawn by Gerard de Lairesse, and engraved by Pieter van Gunst. These are masterpieces of Dutch baroque art" (Garrison-M). "One of the finest anatomical atlases of the Baroque period. The 105 plates were drawn by the painter Gerard de Lairesse, under whose influence the French style of Poussin and Lorraine became dominant in Holland. For Lairesse, the anatomical illustrations Bidloo asked him to undertake were an occasion for an artistic meditation on anatomy: he displayed his figures in an emotional, almost tender manner, contrasting the raw dissected parts with the full, soft surfaces of uncut flesh, placing flayed, bound figures in ordinary nightclothes or bedding, setting ordinary household objects such as books, jars or cabinets in the same scene as cut-up torsos or limbs, and in one plate showing a fly crawling on an opened abdomen. His illustrations brought the quality of Dutch still-life painting into anatomical illustration, and gave a new, darker spritual expression to the significance of the act of dissection. According to the most recent scholarship, the plates were probably engraved by Abraham Bloteling, inventor of the rocker tool for mezzoprint engraving." (Norman 231). "The book took six years to make, and it was not a best seller, even by 17th-century standards. The publisher probably sold the plates to try to recoup some of his losses. But today, the 100 copies still in existence are the prized treasures of the world's great academic libraries, among them Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard, Yale and Vassar" (Vassar College Libraries). Very Good.

        Sectiones conicae in novem libros distributae... Adjecta demum est brevis expositio propositionum septem librorum conicorum Apollonii Pergaei...

      Paris: Apud Stephanum Michallet, 1685. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. Folio (361 x 232 mm). [8], 249 [1] pp., numerous woodcut diagrams in text. Contemporary calf, spine with 6 raised bands richly gilt in compartments and with gilt morocco lettering piece (boards scratched, extremities and spine-ends worn, corners bumped), sprinkled edges. Minor browning of text, very few occasional spots, ink smudge at margin of pp.73 and 81, small burnhole in leaf 3P3 affecting one letter. A fine copy. ----D.S.B. VII, p. 577; Honeyman 1886; Sotheran, Suppl. I, 1350. - FIRST EDITION of La Hire's extensive treatise on conic sections. La Hire published in 1673 his first work (in French) on conic sections, a work clearly showing the influence of Desargues. This Latin treatise is a much more general work, but it too served as a primary vehicle for the transmission of the ideas of Desargues, making use of Cartesian analytic geometry in its analyses and solutions. "Important for having started, with Pascal and Desargues, synthetic geometry" (Sotheran). Very Good.
