SHAKESPEARE, William
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. 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 Four … [Click Below for Full Description]

The title of this work roughly translates into "Anatomy and contemplation of the nature of invisible secrets included in letters written to the illustrious company of the famous King's College, London". It contains Van Leeuwenhoek's letters 43, 42 and 38 (Dobell' s numbers), in that order. These are titled, respectively, "D. D. omni observantiae cultu mihi prosequendi ac devenerandi"; "De structura cerebri diversorum animalium: de generatione pituitae, mucinarium seu blennae, humoris crystallini in oculis hominum, moxae, calcis arthriticorum, morbi leprosorum, squammarum in anguillis", and "De generatio ranarum...", the latter thus being of herpetological interest, the others mainly dealing with human anatomy. The last letter was presented to the Royal Society by the famous British architect, Christopher Wren. The letters are unnumbered, and the pagination is continuous. This is an extremely rare first Latin translation from Dutch, of the letters contained in the original text of Dobell 5, published in the same year. Van Leeuwenhoek had those translations prepared, to be able to communicate with the scientific community outside of The Netherlands. Indeed, he became famous as the first and foremost microscopist of his time. Norman, 1316. Not in Heirs of Hippocrates, nor Osler. Dobell mentions: "my own copy is the only one I have seen."

Dreiseitiger Goldschnitt. 12mo (70 x 130 x 65 mm).. Hübsche Lüneburger Lutherbibel im kleinen Taschenformat, hier gebunden als "Drillingseinband" ("Dos-a-dos-a-dos-Band"), eine fast nie vorkommende Steigerungsform der ohnehin schon seltenen Dos-a-dos-Bände. Letztere beschreibt v. Arnim als "Einbände für mehrere Werke gleichen [...] Formats, die wie siamesische Zwilllinge durch einen gemeinsamen Teil - Rücken oder Deckel - miteinander verbunden und von mindestens zwei Seiten aus zu lesen sind. Diese Einbandspielerei scheint ihren Ausgang in den sechziger Jahren des 16. Jahrhunderts genommen zu haben [...] Schon Gruel bemerkte, daß die kuriosen Einbände fast durchweg religiöse protestantische Gebrauchsdrucke enthalten. Es scheint, als habe sich hier der nüchterne Protestantismus einer quasi-luxuriösen Laune ergeben, gleichsam als Ersatz für die häufig bibliophil ausgerichteten (katholischen) Stundenbücher. Besonders beliebt waren Zwillingsbände in England, zumal für die dort so zahlreichen kleinformatigen Ausgaben von Neuem Testament und Psalmen [...] Von neun Zwillingsbänden im British Museum haben sechs gestickte Einbände" (Bibl. Otto Schäfer, Nr. 79). "Die Form der Zwillings- oder dos-a-dos-Bände wurde im 17. und 18. Jahrhundert öfter für religiöse Bücher angewendet; jedoch haben sich nur wenige erhalten" (Sonntag, Boerner-Kat. 21, Nr. 63: englischer Seidensticker-Zwillingsband).

Dos-à-dos-à-dos binding]. Biblia germanica.
Lüneburg, Johann Stern, 1685. 12mo (70 x 130 x 65 mm). (8), 664 pp. 423, (1) pp. 302, (5), 5, 8 pp. With engr. frontispiece and 3 engr. title pages. Contemp. brown calf. Marbled endpapers. All edges gilt. Pretty Lüneburg-printed Luther Bible in small pocket format, bound as a "dos-à-dos-à-dos binding", a superlative triplet version of the dos-à-dos binding. The latter is described as "a binding structure in which two separate books are bound together such that the fore edge of one is adjacent to the spine of the other, with a shared lower board between them serving as the back cover of both". Von Arnim states that "this gimmick first seems to have appeared in the 1560s [.] Gruel noted that these curious bindings almost exclusively contain Protestant functional writings. It would seem that sober Protestantism here yielded to a luxurious whim, as it were, a substitute for the Catholics' bibliophile Books of Hours. Dos-à-dos bindings were particularly popular in England, especially for the small-format editions of the New Testament and Psalms so common there [.] Of nine dos-à-dos bindings in the British Museum, six are embroidered" (Bibl. Otto Schäfer, no. 79). "These twin bindings, or dos-à-dos bindings, were used frequently for religious books of the 17th and 18th century, but very few have survived" (Sonntag, Boerner Cat. 21, no. 63: an embroidered English dos-à-dos binding). Bound between the first and second parts (Genesis through Song of Solomon; Prophets) is the third part (New Testament), with shared inner boards. A few old ms. notes; first part wants flyleaves.

Vignette calcografiche al frontespizio e all'inizio del testo e bellissima incisione su rame di Antonio Luciani all'antiporta.

Bella, rara edizione "in usum delphini" delle lettere familiari ciceroniane, raccolte in trentasei libri ed annotate dal gesuita francese Philibert Quartier. La prima edizione aveva visto la luce a Parigi nel 1685. "Queste lettere, giustamente elogiate per la forma e prese a modello in ogni tempo, sono il documento più importante per la storia dell'ultimo periodo della Repubblica romana e, più ancora, per conoscere da vicino quel singolarissimo personaggio che fu il loro autore. Di esse non molte furono scritte per essere pubblicate; la maggior parte, e sono le più interessanti, sono di carattere intimo".

[TRINITY HOUSE]
for the government and encrease of the navigation of England, and the relief of poor mariners, their widdows and orphans, &c.Trinity House was originally a guild of "ship men and mariners" of England set up by Henry VIII in 1517, "to the praise and honour of the most glorious and individable Trinity ...... in the parish church of Deptford-Strond in our county of Kent". Its original purpose was to do all things necessary for the "relief, increase and augmentation of the shipping of this our realm of England". Elizabeth I extended the duties of the guild to the erection of sea-marks since "by the destroying and taking away of certain steeples, woods and other marks standing upon the main shores ...... being as beacons and marks of ancient time, divers ships have been miscarried, perished, and lost in the sea ......". Since then the Corporation of Trinity House has been the body responsible in England for the erection and maintenance of lighthouses, lightships, buoys, and other aids to navigation within the waters surrounding English shores.Samuel Pepys, Secretary for Admiralty Affairs from 1683 to 1689 under both Charles II and James II, had been largely responsible for the reformation at this time both of the Navy Board itself but also of the Trinity House. Its name derives from the church of Holy Trinity and St. Clement, which adjoined the royal dockyard at Deptford. Trinity House's operational headquarters is now in Harwich (just four miles from Wrabness).8vo., engraved frontispiece plate of the Trinity House coat of arms, (2) + 220pp., title-page and A2 printed in red and … [Click Below for Full Description]

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 concer … [Click Below for Full Description]

ROCHEFORT, César de (1630-1691)
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).*** Only Edition. A question-and-answer guide to classical mythology for children. 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 useful example of the vogue for secular catechisms in late 17th-century France. Rare, no copies in US libraries and 5 copies located in France. Cioranescu 59870.

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).

Gracian Lorenzo
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. [Attributes: First Edition]

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.
