Modern bookplate of Gordon W. Jones, M.D. First Edition of Georg Abraham Mercklin's considerably expanded version of van der Linden's bibliography of medicine.

This copy is from the library of Johann Friedrich Blumenbach, the founder of modern anthropology. He was the author of De generis humani varietate nativa (1775), in which he divided humanity into four races based on head shape, skin color and hair type; he later added a fifth race, and in the expanded third edit … [Click Below for Full Description]

Elle est d'une insigne rareté.C'est le premier texte important sur la vulgarisation scientifique"Fontenelle a le double mérite d'éclaircir ce qu'il peut y avoir d'obscur dans les travaux de ceux qu'il loue, et de généraliser ce qu'ils ont de technique. Il a certainement les qualités de son emploi. C'est un homme d'esprit, qui connaît assez les sciences pour en parler agréablement et exactement, mais qui n'y a pas pénétré assez profondément pour risquer d'être abstrait et obscurique."

Shorter, Elizabeth.
[Philadelphia], 12 October 1686. Small 4to (19.5 x 18.5 cm, 7.7 x 7.28"), 4 pp., with integral address leaf, 2 pp. blank.. A rare glimpse into the earliest days of Philadelphia, this unique document was => written within four years of the city's founding (1682). Widow Elizabeth Shorter was a London glover who moved to Pennsylvania with her grandson Isaac Knight about 1683 and was one of the => First Purchasers, that select group of 751 individuals who bought the first offering of land from William Penn. She was certainly in contact with Penn by 1681, when he signed an indenture to her in London; two years later, he signed an official land grant confirming the location and cost of her 250-acre plot. Witness to the lack of government structure at the time, being => written on scrap paper and without any official notarization, the deed in hand documents the sale of widow Shorter's "housing in the front street of Delawar with my lott" to Christopher Libthorpe for the sum of one hundred pounds sterling. Indited in secretary hand with witnesses' signatures in both italic and secretary, the deed is followed by two blank pages on the interior (as usual); the witnesses were John Morroy (Morrey?) and John Best (Lest?), who both had fine signatures. Not unexpectedly, the widow signed with her mark. A docket on the last leaf's verso reads, "Xher [Christopher] Libthorpe To George Rothe" and another, in a second hand, adds, "and a Deed from Pickering to Post for a lot," with a computation below on the same page. The watermark appears to be a heart-shaped shield crowned by a fleur d … [Click Below for Full Description]

(6), 240, (4) pp.; lieve ossidazione della carta. Seconda tiratura della prima edizione: rispetto alla prima tiratura (Groningen, Pieman, 1686), sono state cambiate solo alcune parole del titolo. Raro trattato scritto in forma di dialogo tra due persone (forse i figli dell?autore, un magistrato olandese di Groeningen appassionato di alchimia) le quali, salendo i dieci gradini della ?scala della sapienza?, discutono di questioni mistico - alchemiche. L?opera fu ristampata nel 1693 a Colonia col titolo Thrésor de la Philosophie des Anciens. Duveen 287. Cf. Caillet 2417. Verginelli Rota 74 (edizione del 1693): «L?opera è originale e interessante. Molto rara e perciò poco nota anche agli specialisti a ai repertori». Second issue of the first edition of a very rare work on alchemy. "The fact that the title leaf bears a different watermark from the rest of the book suggests that it is a cancelled leaf, the whole being simply a reissue of unsold sheets of the 1686 edition together with two leaves of errata. In other words this is not a new edition but the second issue of the first edition" (Mellon Coll. 142). With an engr. allegorical frontispiece, 13 engr. plates with allegorical illustrations, and 4 (of 5) engr. plates with geometrical figures. Some light browning and occasional foxing.

1686/1687, 8vo 7.25" x 5" x 2.25", Very Good, rare- not listed in Herbert,A LOVELY EXAMPLE OF A LATE ENGLISH RESTORATION PERIOD WORK WITH AN AMAZING FINE BINDING, RULED WITH RED LINES THROUGHOUT INDICATING ORIGINAL OWNERSHIP BY NOBILITY, :Oxford University Press has a rich history which can be traced back to the earliest days of printing. The first book was printed in Oxford in 1478, just two years after Caxton set up the first printing press in England. The University was involved with several printers in Oxford over the next century, although there was no formal university press. In 1586 the University of Oxford's right to print books was recognized in a decree from the Star Chamber. This was enhanced in the Great Charter secured by Archbishop Laud from King Charles I, which entitled the University to print 'all manner of books'. Delegates were first appointed by the University to oversee this process in 1633. Minutes of their deliberations are recorded dating back to 1668. The structure of Oxford University Press (OUP) as it exists today began to develop in a recognizable form from that time. The University also established its right to print the King James Authorized Version of the Bible in the seventeenth century. This Bible Privilege formed the basis of OUP's publishing activities throughout the next two centuries. From the late 1800s OUP began to expand significantly, opening the first overseas OUP office in New York in 1896. Other international branches followed, including Canada (1904), Australia (1908), India (1912), Southern Africa (1914). Today OUP has offices i … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bohn, Johann
Leipzig: Gleditsch, 1686. Bohn, Johann (1640-1718). Circulus anatomico-physiologicus, seu oeconomia corporis animalis. . . . 4to. [8], 479, [25]pp. Leipzig: Joh. Friedrich Gleditsch, 1686. 190 x 152 mm. 20th cent. half calf, speckled boards. Some foxing and browning, small tear in title, but very good. First Edition. Garrison-Morton 1355. Bohn's writings show him to have been "an expert on the then new anatomical and physiological discoveries . . . one of the innovators in physiology who completely forsook the Galenic tradition" (DSB). In his Circulus anatomico-physiologicus, dedicated to Malpighi, Bohn stated that the reflex action was an entirely material and mechanical phenomenon, and showed that the nerves do not contain a "nerve juice." The DSB gives 1680 as the date of Bohn's work, probably in error, as OCLC cites no edition printed in that year.

Decorative title cartouche to upper right; compass rose and sailing ships to sea. The map is from the second part of Dapper's work "Description des iIes de l'Afrique." Dark impression; light toning; occasional spotting to blank margins; old ink number to upper margin. Olfert Dapper (1639-1689) was a Dutch physician and scholar devoted to historical and geographical studies.

Dapper, Olfert
Africa: Amsterdam Wolfgangh, Waesbergen, Boom. Someren en Goethals 1686. Large copper engraved folding map of the continent of Africa by Jacob Meurs, from Olfert Dapper's "Description de l'Afrique," the first edition in French; black and white, folded; verso blank. Decorative title cartouche to upper right; lower left decorative dedicatory cartouche, blank. Numerous animals to body of the continent which is surrounded by many ships in the seas. "There are several points of interest to this map. The first is that the Nile is shown incorporating the ancient idea that it springs from the two lakes of Zaire and Zafflan, it is one of the earliest maps to clearly delineate the separate countries in Africa, and it has two decorative cartouches (the first depicts two natives along with angels, and the other depicts Neptune and his court). It is characteristic of other maps of the period with its use of detail: there are topographical features, many place names, and illustrations of wild animals."Tooley, Africa, p. 87. Dark impression; light toning, occasional minor spotting and some offsetting due to being folded to fit the book; tiny hole on centre fold [ just left of Lake Zaire] caused by double fold; mounted on guard to verso; lower margin trimmed to plate mark but not printed area.

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.
