        [Title in Greek.] Cebetis Thebani Tabula, Græce & Latine, multis in locis restituta ex MSS. codicibus, unde etiam Græca in fine reposita ab Jacobo Gronovio, cuius accedunt notæ & emendationes

      Amsterdam: apud Henricum Westenium 1689 First edition as edited by the Dutch scholar Jakob Gronovius. This famous allegory of the life of man, known as "Pinax" or the "Table" of Cebes and long popular as a school text, was originally ascribed to a Pythagorean follower of Socrates; it is now assigned to a later date, as it contains element of the Stoic philosophy of the Roman empire. This edition by Gronovius, making use of several additional manuscripts, was the best critical text yet produced. Contemporary calf, panelled in blind, brown morocco label. . Small octavo. Parallel Greek and Latin texts. The Latin translation by Wolf was first opubkished in 1560. Joints a bit rubbed. Ink signature on the front flyleaf of Robert Raymond, dated 1692 (see DNB); Raymond was then a student at Christ's College, Cambridge, and went on to become Lord Chief Justice. A very good copy of an uncommon book. Gronovius was an industrious classicist, who produced a massive thesaurus of Greek antiquities in thirteen folio volumes (1687-1702), and became involved in a dispute with Bentley. Dibdin quotes Harwood as describing his edition of Cebes as "very correct and beautiful.

Warmholtz Bibliotheca historica Sueo-Gothica 1643: "skada, at et så vackert och på många authentique handlingar grundat arbete icke blifvit fulbordat; fritt från misstag är det ej; men de förringa icke des värde". Med tryckt dedikation till Karl XI. Med hyllningar av J. Columbus och L. Norrmannus. De avslutande opaginerade bladen är en hyllning till Karl XI. Lindroth skriver i sin lärdomshistoria att det var Örnhielms "avsikt att bruka sina samlingar till en grundläggande svensk kyrkohistoria, byggd på urkundernas vittnesbörd. Men bara det första bandet blev färdigt och utgivet [...]. Det omfattar den äldsta tiden från Ansgar till sekelskiftet 1200." Lindroth påpekar liksom Warmholtz att arbetet innehåller misstag, men att författarens lärdom är beundransvärd: "Det skulle dröja länge, innan svensk kyrkohistorisk forskning åter nådde samma nivå som i Örnhielms Historia ecclesiastica". Munck af Rosenschöld har antecknat att han förvärvat boken på den bokauktion där hans gamla lärare Johan Lundblad sålde huvuddelen av sitt bibliotek. Gustaf Johan Sommelius (1726-1800) var professor och universitetsbibliotekarie i Lund. Johan Lundblad (1753-1820) var professor i latin och akademibokhandlare m.m. i Lund. David Munck af Rosenschöld (1786-1840) studerade i Lund och efterträdde 1812 Esaias Tegnér som som adjunkt i estetik och vice bibliotekarie vid Lunds universitetsbibliotek, han blev kyrkoherde i Kvistofta 1816 och fick professors namn 1819. Han skrev flitigt i många ämnen och ansågs som ett original, bl.a. för sitt ointresse av att tvätta sig

        The works . . . containing great variety of choice secrets in medicine and alchymy

      Thomas Milbourne for the author London: Thomas Milbourne for the author, 1689. No Dust Jacket. Glauber, Johann Rudolph (1604-70). The works of the highly experienced and famous chymist, John Rudolph Glauber . . .Translated into English . . . by the labour, care, and charge, of Christopher Packe . . . Folio. [12], 440, [4], 220, 92, [11]pp. 7 engraved plates (including frontispiece), 4 woodcut plates, woodcut text illustrations. London: Thomas Milbourn for the author, 1689. 353 x 230 mm. Paneled calf ca. 1689, rebacked, corners repaired, endpapers renewed. Light toning, some fore-edges a bit frayed, marginal tear in frontispiece repaired, but very good. From the libraries of British chemists Charles Hatchett (1765-1847), with his ownership stamp on the verso title, and his son-in-law William Thomas Brande (1788-1866), with his signature on the title. Armorial bookplate of British metallurgist Hugh Lee Pattinson (1796-1858). First Edition in English of the collected works of Glauber, who has been called "the best practical chemist of his day and the first industrial chemist" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography). A self-taught chemist and alchemist in the iatrochemical tradition of Paracelsus, Glauber was responsible for many practical advances in the science of chemistry, the most important being the invention of improved distilling furnaces (he may have been the first to construct one with a chimney) that greatly increased the range of distillable substances. This English collected works opens with his Furni novi philosophici, originally published in German between 1646-1649, which contains most of his significant chemical achievements. Glauber used concentrated forms of hydrochloric, sulfuric and nitric acid to prepare chlorides, nitrates and sulfates, was probably the first to distill coal and to obtain from it benzene and phenol, obtained acroleins by distilling burned clay balls soaked in olive oil, produced metal acetates and acetone with distilled wood vinegar, and obtained potassium carbonate and potassium silicate from powdered flints. His efficient production of the mineral acids is particularly noteworthy, as they are essential reactants in other chemical processes. Glauber's influence quickly spread throughout Europe, and his efforts were praised by both Robert Boyle and Hermann Boerhaave. The collection also contains English translations of Glauber's Pharmacopoea spagyrica (1654-68), a collection of iatrochemical medical preparations; dess Teutschlands-Wohlfahrt (1656-61), a work encouraging Germans to make better use of their natural resources; Miraculum mundi (1653-60), on the "universal salt"; Tractatus de natura salium (1658), discussing Glauber's "sal mirabile" (hydrated sodium sulfate); and Operis mineralis (1651). Glauber's works were originally published piecemeal, with several appendices; one of these appendices contains his important and useful work on the coloring of glass, including his rediscovery of the process for ruby glass which had been lost for years. This copy has a distinguished chemical provenance, having belonged to Charles Hatchett, who discovered the element niobium; Hatchett's son-in-law William Thomas Brande, who succeeded Humphry Davy in the chair of chemistry at the Royal Institution; and metallurgist Hugh Lee Pattinson, who developed an economical method for extracting silver from lead ore. Duveen, Bibliotheca alchemica et chemica, p. 260. Wing G-845.
