        Anatomia humani corporis. Centum & quinque tabulis, per artificioss. G. de Lairesse ad vivum delineatis, demonstrata, Veterum Recentiorumque Incentis explicata plurismisque, hactenus non detectis, illustrata.

      Amsterdam: Someren, Dyk und Boom 1685.. Gr.-2° Mit 1 Holzschnitt-Titelvignette (Druckermarke) von C. v. Sichem, 1 Holzschnitt-Schlußvignette und 105 Kupfertafeln (Tafel 23 gefaltet, die ursprünglich gefaltete Tafel 10 in zwei Teilen eingebunden) nach Zeichnungen von Gerard de Lairesse. 67 Bll. Restaurierter Halblederband der Zeit mit Rückenvergoldung und Rückenschild. - Ohne das Frontispiz und ohne das Porträt. - Einband etwas berieben, Kanten leicht bestoßen, Randläsuren der ersten 17 Bll., einschließlich der Kupfertafeln, sowie auch spätere Tafeln und Textblätter, Tafel 103 mit kleinem Löchlein, sauber und fachmännisch hinterlegt, Taf. 70 mit Randeinriss, teils Abklatsch auf gegenüberliegender Seite, vereinzelt etwas stockfleckig, insgesamt gut erhaltenes Exemplar.. Erste Ausgabe des anatomischen Prachtwerkes. - Bidloo (1649-1713) war u. a. Schüler von Fred Ruysch und promovierte 1682, nach Aufenthalten in Frankreich und Deutschland. Nach Amsterdam zurückgekehrt widmete er sich hauptsächlich anatomischen Studien und hatte sich bereits vor seiner Promotion mit der Herausgabe eines vollständigen Handbuches der Anatomie befaßt, welches dann auch 1685 tatsächlich erschien. Das Werk gehört zweifellos zu den künstlerisch wertvollsten anatomischen Werken über das bei Garrison-M. zu lesen ist: "The value lies chiefly in the 105 fine copperplate engravings drawn by G. de Lairesse". Choulant rühmt den "durchaus sehr eleganten und vorzüglich ausgeführten Stich der Tafeln, deren Zeichnungen, vor allem des Nackten, ganz französisch aufgefaßt" sei und Goldschmid, 49 bemerkt ergänzend: "Für uns kommt der hohe Stand der anatomischen Abbildungen in Betracht... handelt es sich doch um eine Zeit, in welcher die Physiologie noch in den Anfangsgründen steckte...". Nach Thieme-Becker ist Gerard de Lairesse der bedeutendste Vertreter des akademischen Klassizismus, der den in Rembrandts Kunst gipfelnden holländischen Realismus im letzten Viertel des 17. Jahrhunderts ablöst. Er zeichnete die Abbildungen nach Bidloo's eigenen Präparaten, von denen die damalige Fachwelt zwar mancherlei Fehler durch ungenaues Präparieren constatierte, was aber den bekannten englischen Anatomen William Cowper nicht davon abhielt, Restexemplare der Tafeln der Bidloo'schen Anatomie bei dessen Verleger aufzukaufen, durch 9 weitere Tafeln zu ergänzen und es als sein eigenes Werk erneut herauszugeben. - Garrison-M. 385; Wellcome II,165; Vgl. auch Hirsch-H.

        Monumenta Omnia Mathematica, quae extant

      - ex traditione Francici Maurolici. Woodcut printer’s device on title, numerous woodcut illus. in the text, & a woodcut vignette on verso of final leaf. 4 p.l., 296 pp. Folio, cont. English panelled calf (joints very carefully repaired, first leaf & final leaf with some light browning around edges), spine richly gilt. Palermo: C. Hesperi, 1685. First edition of Maurolico’s important edition of Archimedes’ works, based upon an earlier partial edition by Borelli (Messina: 1670-72), which was almost completely lost. Maurolico’s edition was largely prepared in 1534 and 1547-50 and remained in manuscript for many years after his death. Maurolico’s "method of redaction is suggested in the preface. After enumerating and summarising Archimedes’ works, Maurolico states that he has tried to make the works more easily intelligible by adding many lemmas, by demonstrating many things omitted by Archimedes, and by treating of the centres of gravity of solids Maurolico does not hesitate to re-arrange Archimedes’ master work, the De Sphaera et Cylindro, often substituting what he claims to be a better proof or enunciation for that of the original It is, however, in the De Aequeponderantibus that Maurolico makes his most drastic re-arrangement of the Archimedean material and also his most important contributions to mathematics "Maurolico organises the treatise (which he calls De Momentis Aequalibus) and his own additions into four books. The first deals with general principles relating to centres of gravity and equilibrium. The following three books concern the determination of centres of gravity in plane figures; paraboloids; and spheres, pyramids, prisms, conoids and other solids. Although Archimedes had apparently known how to find the centres of gravity in various solids, none of his proofs was extant in the sixteenth century. Maurolico sought to remedy this deficiency by applying the Archimedean method of moments to the problem. This he did with considerable success "Although the long delay in publishing the Maurolico Archimedes precluded its entry to the mainstream of mathematical development, the importance of its author’s studies was acknowledged by Federico Commandino."–Rose, The Italian Renaissance of Mathematics, p. 167. A really nice copy. Two faintly bleached out library stamps in blank portions of title. Two bookplates removed. ? Riccardi, I, 43-44–(with a list of the contents).

      Lyon: 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.

        L’ARTE DI RESTITUIRE A ROMA LA TRALASCIATA NAVIGATIONE DEL SUO TEVERE Divisa in tre parti.

      Roma, nella Stamperia del Lazzari Varese, 1685. In folio (mm. 395x250), 2 opere in 1 vol., p. pelle bazana coeva (antiche scritte a mano e piccole macchie ai piatti), dorso a cordoni con tit. oro, 91 cc.nn. + 15 pp.num. (per l?'aggiunta di ONORATI Fr. Maria ?"Sac. Congreg. Riparum Tyberis Romana Remunerationis pro illustriss. D. Cornelio Meyer Memoriale?". Romae, Typ. Rev. Cam. Apost., 1685). Grandi capilett. ornati, fregi e finali, inc. su legno. Dedica al Papa Innocenzo XI ed altra ai Card. Azzolini e Colonna ?"Deputati sopra la Navigatione nuova del Tevere?". L?'opera è superbamente illustrata da una grande inc. con figure allegoriche alla dedica e da una serie di 68 incisioni in rame, di notevole qualità per la finezza del disegno e dell?'esecuzione. Le figure occupano per lo più lo spazio di metà pagina; 1 è a p. pag. (Colonna Traiana) e 4 a doppia pag. (pianta di Pisa, paludi Pontine, veduta di Piazza del Popolo, veduta di S. Pietro): di particolare interesse sono le figure a soggetto tecnico, come pure la pianta a volo di uccello di Ancona, il territorio di Fano e di Pisa; magnifiche sono le vedute di Roma (quella di Piazza del Popolo è anche prezioso documento urbanistico perchè è raffigurata così com?'era prima che venisse attuato il progetto del Valadier). Tutto l?'affascinante apparato iconografico fu ideato dal Meyer ed in parte dal suo amico e conterraneo B. Denner ed inc. da svariati artisti, quali B. de Ballin, I. Blondeau, Io. Collin, G.B. Falda, Gaspar van Wittel. L?'Indice registra al fine - come tav. XVI - quella della Cometa di Halley, della cui esistenza si arrivò persino a dubitare, e che non fu mai inserita in quest?'opera (bensì si trova a volte con la segnatura ?"K?" nella terza parte dell?'altra introvabile opera del Meyer ?"L?'arte di rendere i fiumi navigabili?", Roma, Komarek, 1696). I titoli delle 3 parti in cui è divisa l?'opera sono: 1°. Gl?'impedimenti, che sono nell?'alveo del Tevere da Roma a Perugia, e suoi rimedi (con una nutrita serie di macchine nuove per superare tali impedimenti) - 2°. Le difficoltà, che sono nella Navigatione del Tevere da Roma sino al Mare, e suoi rimedij. - 3°. Nella quale si discorre perchè Roma è stata fabbricata, e mantenuta su le sponde del Tevere.. (sono anche descritti un gran numero di dispositivi idrostatici). L?'aggiunta dell?'ONORATI, che riguarda: la navigazione del Tevere, lettere e documenti relativi al progetto e resoconto dettagliato delle spese del Meyer, costituisce di per sè un importante documento di storia economica relativo al più grande progetto costruttivo del XVII secolo. "Seconda edizione". Cfr. Choix de Olschki,XI,17589: ?"Ouvrage des plus curieux et des plus importants sur la navigabilité du Tibre. L?'architecte hollandais Cornelius Meyer (1640-1700), outre qu?'etre un ingénieur idraulique de grande renommée, a eu un riche esprit inventif dans les sciences méchaniques et ce volume en donne une documentation. "Ouvrage fort rare" - Cicognara, 3791-92 cita anche la I ediz. del 1683 - Graesse,IV,512 - Manca al Riccardi.

        Comedies, Histories and Tragedies

      London: for H. Herringman, and are to be sold by Joseph Knight and Francis Saunders,, 1685. Published according to the true Original Copies. Unto which is added, Seven Plays, Never before Printed in Folio … Folio (360 × 234 mm). Rebound to style using old leather and retaining old endpapers, spine gilt in compartments, red morocco label, blind-ruled sides, plain endpapers, old sprinkled edges. Engraved portrait by Martin Droeshout above the verses To the Reader on verso of first leaf, double column text within typographical rules, woodcut initials. Frontispiece with skilful paper restoration at inner and lower margin not affecting text or engraved area, title leaf with minor paper restoration all round just affecting printed frame at head, minor restoration in gutter of prelims to lower stab holes; spill-burns to C6 and 2L5 touching frame but no text, blemish to D3 affecting a word either side, small tear at upper margin O3 (binding shop accident) not affecting text, paper flaw at upper outer corner of U6 and *3E4 not affecting text, single wormhole in lower margin below the text running from 2I2 onwards and widening to three by end; upper outer corner of 2L6 torn away not affecting text, spill-burns to 3F4?-5 affecting a couple of individual letters but not the sense, one bifolium (3I3?-4) slightly shorter and probably supplied from another genuine copy, paper flaw at foot of gutter to 3V2 not affecting text, 2 closed tears at foot of 3Y1 running about 18 lines up (no loss), a few fairly minor spots, stains, and insignificant marginal tears as often, overall a good complete copy. Fourth folio, and the last of the 17th-century editions of Shakespeare's works, edited by John Heminge (d. 1630) and Henry Condell (d. 1627), the seven plays added by Philip Chetwin (d. 1680), publisher of the Third Folio. A reprint of the ill-fated Third Folio, this edition was issued by Henry Herringman in conjunction with other booksellers, and has three settings of the title-page. Of the seven additional plays, also included in the Third Folio, only Pericles is today recognised as the work of Shakespeare. In common with the Third, the Fourth Folio dropped the final "e" from Shakespeare's name, a spelling that persisted until the beginning of the 19th century. The printer of the Comedies has been identified from the ornaments as Robert Roberts. Although this is the only edition in which each play does not start on a fresh page, it is in a larger fount and more liberally spaced than the three earlier editions. (The two pages of L1 are set in smaller type, presumably after the discovery that some text had been omitted.) The Fourth Folio remained the favoured edition among collectors until the mid-18th century, when Samuel Johnson and Edward Capell argued for the primacy of the First Folio text.

      Nicolò Pezzana,, Venezia, 1685 - Volume in 4° antico (cm. 22 x 15), legatura coeva in piena pelle, titolo al tassello al dorso finemente decorato in oro, tagli colorati, sguardie pavonate, bianca, occhiello (marchio d'antico possessore), frontespizio con grande marca xilografica (giglio fiorentino in ricca cornice ornamentale di stile barocco), prefazione, sommario, 4 cc., 312 pp., bianca finale. Prima edizione italiana del capo d’ opera del grande filosofo spagnolo, gesuita (1601-1658). Un allegoria della vita umana, che costituisce una delle opere letterarie più importanti della letteratura spagnola, comparabile per qualità con il Don Chisciotte di Miguel Cervantes. Lo stile è basato su frasi brevi, molto personale e denso, concentrato e polisemico, nel quale domina il gioco di parole e l'associazione ingegnosa fra parole e idee. Ne risulta un linguaggio laconico, pieno di aforismi e capace di esprimere una ricca gamma di significati, che si può ascrivere alla corrente letteraria chiamata concettismo. Come questa, buona parte delle sue opere si occupano di fornire al lettore i mezzi e le risorse per districarsi nelle trappole della vita; da cui l’autore trae la fama di precursore dell'esistenzialismo, tale da influenzare pensatori come La Rochefoucauld e più tardi anche Schopenhauer. Bell’esemplare, stampato su doppia colonna, adorno di testatine e capilettera ornati in xilografia, rarissime ed ininfluenti mende d’uso. Ancor fresco e frusciante. Notevole l’importanza dell’opera e la rarità dell’edizione.

        Histoire Générale des Insectes. Ou l'on expose clairement la manière lente & presqu' insensible de l'accroissement de leurs membres, & ou l'on decouvre evidemment l'erreur ou l'on tombe d'ordinaire au sujet de leur prétendué transformation.

      Utrecht, Jean Ribbius, 1685. 4to (205 x 155mm). pp. (10), 215, (3), with woodcut title-vignette, 1 folded table and 13 (10 folded) engraved plates. Contemporary calf, gilt decorated spine with red gilt lettered label. Second French edition; the original Latin edition 'Historia Insectorum generalis' was published in 1669 in Utrecht. "Swammerdam's thesis about insects was fundamentally new and significant. For his contemporaries, as for Aristotle, there existed three good arguments, that not only placed the insects far from the higher animals, but even tended to remove them from the realm of subjects open to scientific study. These arguments were: insects lack internal anatomy; they originate by spontaneous generation; and they develop by metamorphosis. Swammerdam believed that all three arguments were false and devoted a wide variety of investigations to refute these ideas" (D.S.B. XIII, p. 171). Two leaves with small paper repair at the lower margin. A fine and beautifully bound copy.//Provenance: Bookplate of J. d'Aguilar.//Nissen ZBI, 4054.
