      1686. Oxonii, e Theatro Sheldoniano, 1686. Folio (367 x 245mm). With 1 engraved frontispiece, 1 engraved title-vignette and 187 engraved plates. Contemporary blind pressed vellum, small split on upper cover hinge. A fine copy of the rare first edition of the first large work on fishes in England, marking a new era in ichthyology. Although Ray states with his characteristic modesty to be only the editor of the manuscript of his deceased friend Willughby (1635-1672), his share in compiling the material for the work should not be neglected. The text was printed at the expense of bishop John Fell (founder of the University Press), the plates engraved by Paul van Somers under the supervision of Martin Lister at the expense of several members of the Royal Society of London, among them particularly the Society's president Samuel Pepys to whom the work is dedicated. Provenance: Armorial bookplate of Falkenhof. Dean III, 331; Keynes 46; Nissen, 'Schöne Fischbücher', 130..

        Several Chirurgical Treatises. By Richard Wiseman, Serjeant-Chirurgeon

      London, Printed by R. Norton and J. Macock, for R. Royston, 1686. Second Edition, folio, half-title, short tear in outer blank margin of the dedication leaf to Charles 11, worming on upper inner blank margins of the last 100pp. but not affecting the text at any point, with a divisional title-page for each treatise, [16], 577, [15] pp., contemporary calf, extremities rubbed, corners rubbed through to the boards, head and foot of spine chipped. The first edition of this work was published in 1676 and was republished unchanged for this second edition. "For each topic Wiseman examines the anatomy, pathology, etiology, diagnosis, prognosis and management, adding selected case histories or observations from his vast experience. These personal observations, some brief and some in extensive detail, concern 600 individual patients .... constitute a rich and unique historical record of surgical reality in seventeenth-century Britain and have yet to be analysed fully. In Europe only the 600 observations of Wilhelm Fabry of Hilden, published earlier in the century, are comparable ..... The eight treatises concern ulcers, tumours, diseases of the anus, king's evil, wounds, gunshot wounds, fractures and luxations, and lues venerea (syphilis and gonorrhoea) respectively....[his] immense expertise in traumatic surgery is particularly evident in his account of gunshot wounds, including severe compound limb fractures." - ODNB. ******"Wiseman is our surgical Sydenham. He by his skill and personality helped to raise the whole status of surgery. He was the first of the great British surgeons." - Power, pp. 198-201.

        THE HISTORY OF THE CHURCH OF PETERBURGH

      London: Printed for Richard Chiswell, 1686. FIRST EDITION . Hardcover. 371 x 232 mm (14 5/8 x 9 1/8"). 4 p.l., 348 pp. Edited by Simon Patrick. FIRST EDITION. SPLENDID HONEY BROWN DICED RUSSIA BY ROGER PAYNE, covers with wide, intricate, and elegant dentelle frame composed of many small floral tools; raised bands, spine with gilt crest of Sir Richard Colt Hoare in top compartment, gilt titling in next two compartments, and four elaborately tooled compartments below with gilt floral sprigs radiating from a central quatrefoil, interspersed with circlets and many small floral tools; turn-ins with simple gilt rules and delicate floral cornerpieces, endpapers of purple "fine drawing paper" (Payne's words), all edges gilt (joints and a very small portion at spine ends recently and expertly renewed by Courtland Benson). In a (somewhat scuffed) folding cloth box lined with felt. With two illustrations in the text and four plates of views of the cathedral. A Large Paper Copy. Front pastedown with armorial bookplate of Sir Henry Hope Edwardes and engraved bookplate of W. H. Corfield (see below). Front flyleaf with transcription in Sir Richard Colt Hoare's hand of Payne's very detailed explanation of the work done and the bill for it. Wing G-2246; Foot, "Henry Davis Gift" II, 194 (for another Payne binding with the same early provenance). Spine evenly darkened toward a chocolate brown, moderate foxing to half a dozen leaves, occasional rust spots, light stains, or other trivial imperfections elsewhere in the text, but AN EXCEPTIONALLY DESIRABLE SPECIMEN in generally very fine condition, mostly clean and always fresh internally, and the very special binding entirely solid now, with virtually no wear, and with all of the delicate gilt quite bright. This comprehensive history of the cathedral at Peterborough was bound by one of the most celebrated figures in the history of English bookbinding for one of the major English collectors at the end of the 18th century. Beautifully designed and flawlessly executed, the binding appears to be unrecorded in the major bibliopegic literature and is distinctive in its very substantial size. The son of a diocesan registrar at Peterborough Cathedral, our author Gunton (1609-76) was a canon at the church, fascinated by this looming presence in his life; he spent years collecting data from its monuments and from the records in his father's care. His manuscript notes on the clergy, patrons, architecture, and historical documents were revised after his death by Simon Patrick and published in the present work, which includes important information lost during the Civil War. Roger Payne (1738-97) was apprenticed to the Eton bookseller Joseph Pote, then moved to London, where he first worked as a bookseller before establishing his bindery. Much of his work was commissioned by two clients: (1) the extraordinarily discriminating Rev. Clayton Mordaunt Cracherode (1730-99) of Christ Church, Oxford, whose bequest to the British Museum in the year of his death was, in De Ricci's words, "one of the most valuable . . . that the Museum has ever received," and (2) the celebrated bibliophile George John, second Earl Spencer (1758-1834), called by De Ricci "one of the greatest book collectors . . . in the history of the world." Because the collections amassed by these two bibliopegic giants are now in public institutions (Spencer's books ended up in the John Rylands Library), many of the bindings executed by Payne have been available for study by scholars like Cyril Davenport, whose monograph on Payne, published by the Caxton Club, is indispensable. It has been fashionable over the years to attribute any attractively decorated English binding from the latter part of the 18th century to Roger Payne, often without any shred of definitive evidence. With the present item, however, there are unmistakable matches between distinctive tools used here and those reproduced in Davenport's book. In particular, two of the floral tools used in the dentelle frame--the lily and the tulip with columbine--match those in Davenport's Figure 27. The Henry Davis Gift pictures another Payne binding done for Sir Richard Colt Hoare (1758-1838), using the same eagle head tool in the crest as on our volume. In addition, we have a note on the flyleaf, apparently in Colt Hoare's hand, noting that he bought the book at the Southgate sale in 1795 for £2, 5 shillings and paid Payne £3, 10 shillings for the binding. The transcription of Payne's (rambling and self-congratulatory) bill says in part that "the very magnificent broad borders, with a very great number of Tools, which took [him] a great deal of Time" were part of "quite a new Pattern in the Gothic Taste, and [he is] in great hopes of the Borders being approved; for there is a great deal of work in them; more work in the Borders than expected." A review of the Abbey, Schiff, Davis, Broxbourne Library, and Wormsley Library collections, as well as Maggs catalogues 1075 and 1212 and the British Library Database of Bookbindings locates just one Payne binding taller than the present item, a copy of Estienne's Greek Poets in the Abbey collection standing 388 mm. tall. (Payne's work was done mostly on small volumes--there are only four other books over 300 mm. tall listed in these various sources.) Scion of a banking family, Colt Hoare was a scholarly man who devoted his life to art and antiquities. He expanded his grandfather's famed art collection at Stourhead, the family estate, and added a Regency-style library that is still one of treasures of the National Trust. According to DNB, Colt Hoare "created in his house the scholarly atmosphere of a medieval monastery, without any of the discomforts, and provided most of the documentary sources required by himself and his collaborators for their work on the history and archaeology of Wiltshire. . . . The library was handsomely furnished by Thomas Chippendale the younger, whose ailing business, after he was made bankrupt in 1804, relied heavily on Colt Hoare for survival." A later owner of this volume was William Henry Corfield (1843-1903), a pioneer in household sanitation promotion and a rare book connoisseur with a special interest in fine bindings.

        L'Helvetia o' Paese de Svizzeri

      Giovanni Giacomo de Rossi. Map. Engraving with original hand coloring. Image measures 17" x 21.75". This late 17th century map of Switzerland includes the Savoie region of France. The region's mountainous terrain is depicted pictorially throughout the map, and important locations are indicated with letters and symbols according to a note in the lower left of the map, next to the scale. The upper left contains a decorative title cartouche with scrollwork. Dotted lines that have been hand-colored divide the various states. Designed by Giacomo Cantelli in 1686, the map appeared in Giovanni Giacomo de Rossi's "Mercurio Geografico" in 1689. The map is a dark impression in excellent condition with no chips or tears. Giacomo Cantelli was an important Italian cartographer and engraver who worked for Francesco II, Duke of Modena in the 17th century.
