      Franckfurt und Leipzig, Michael Rohrlachs Witwe und Erben, 1690. Bekanntestes Werk des schlesischen Chirurgen Matthäus Gottfried Purmann (1648 - 1711), der als "Feldscher" (Kriegschirurg) zahlreiche Schußwunden versorgte und umfassende Erfahrungen mit kriegsbedingten Verletzungen und Krankheiten erwarb, die er in mehreren Lehrbücher genauestens dokumentierte. "Er operierte unter anderem Trepanationen bei Schädelfrakturen, nahm Repositionen und Schienungen von Frakturen und Luxationen vor und führte auch einige Kaiserschnitte (transperitoneal über einen Unterbauchparamedianschnitt) erfolgreich durch." Durch die Systematisierung und Aufbereitung seines Erfahrungswissens leistete Purmann einen wesentlichen Beitrag zur Etablierung der Chirurgie als eigenständiger wissenschaftlicher Disziplin: "Mit Purmann begann in Deutschland die Weiterentwicklung der Chirurgie aus der mittelalterlichen Volksmedizin, mit der Purmann besonders in der Salbenzubereitung für die Wundversorgung noch eng verbunden war, zu einer Erfahrungswissenschaft" (M. Sachs: Der Chirurg Matthäus Gottfried Purmann (1649 bis 1711) und sein Beitrag zur chirurgischen Versorgung Unfallverletzter, in: Unfallchirurgie, Bd. 24, Okt. 1998, S. 197 ff.). Das Werk gliedert sich in vier Kapitel, in denen "Haupt-Wunden", "Brust-Wunden", "Glieder-Wunden" sowie die "im Felde grassirenden Kranckheiten" abgehandelt werden. Alle Kapitel sind in zahlreiche Unterkapitel gegliedert. In einem abschließenden fünften Kapitel werden "Artzeneyen" aufgelistet und näher beschrieben, die zur Linderung bzw. Heilung kriegsbedingter Verletzungen und Krankheiten geeignet sind. Ein ausführliches Register am Schluß erleichtert die Navigation in dem umfangreichen Werk. Der Pergamentband in gutem altersgerechtem Zustand, an den Ecken etwas bestoßen, eine Ecke mit Abrieb der Pergamenthaut. Titelblatt fehlend. Einige Blatt (im vorderen Bereich etwa 10, im hinteren etwa 17 Bl., im Buchinneren 3 Bl.) etwas wurmspurig (vor allem Ränder), teils mit geringem Buchstabenverlust, S. 71 - 82 mit Eckabriß, dieser aber nur bei Bl. 81/82 nennenswert, hier mit geringem Textverlust 3 Bl. mit Randfleck Seiten ab S. 425 blaß feuchtigkeitsrandig (nicht auffällig). Seiten ansonsten kaum fleckig und kaum gebräunt. In toto gutes Exemplar dieses medizinhistorisch bedeutenden Werkes mit alterstypischen Spuren, als Originalband der Zeit aber durchaus akzeptabel.

        ZAYDE. A SPANISH HISTORY, OR, ROMANCE

      London: Printed for Francis Saunders, 1690. Second Edition, Corrected. This uncommonly seen work is considered to be one of the earliest novels written by a woman, and we offer it here in a lovely contempoarary binding apparently by Queens' Binder "A" or some close imitator. First published in French under the name of poet and novelist Jean Regnauld de Segrais, our novel was actually written by the Comtesse de La Fayette (1634-93), one of "that set of distinguished ladies known as 'Les Précieuses,' whose influence was so great on the manners and language of the young Court of Louis XIV" (as noted by the Catholic Encyclopedia). "Zayde" centers on the experiences of two young noblemen who have been disappointed by love. As they exchange their tales of woe we learn that one has lost his lover to a friend's betrayal while the other is unhappily in love with a shipwrecked woman (Zayde) who speaks an entirely different language--he speaks Spanish and she speaks what he later discovers to be Greek. The majority of the novel consists of inserted stories told by the characters themselves, weaving a complex plot that pits perceptions and assumptions against true knowledge and love. The distinctive strapwork of this binding is very similar to several bindings attributed to Queens' Binder "A" (the collective name given to those artisans who produced finely decorated volumes for Catherine of Braganza and Mary of Modena, the queens consort of Charles II and James I). The present design is particularly notable for its use of the distinctive ribbon-like strapwork, which was normally reserved for books of a larger size. According to Nixon, who first suggested that "A" was, in fact, William Nott, "octavos from this bindery usually have an all-over design with 'drawer-handle' tools, but its larger volumes show a partiality for the interlacing ribbon of the fanfare pattern." ("Five Centuries of English Bookbinding," p. 94) Nott appears in an important passage in Pepys' diary that recounts a visit to the famous binder, during which Pepys purchased a book "only that [he] might have one of [Nott's] bindings" (i.e., entirely for the binding, no matter the contents of the book). After Nott's shop in Saint Paul's Churchyard was destroyed in the Great Fire, he moved his premises to Westminster--soon to be the location of choice for the leading binders--where he was active until about 1689.. 175 x 107 mm. (6 7/8 x 4 1/8"). 4 p.l., 136, 129-271, [1] (ads) pp. Translated from the French by P. Porter. Second Edition, Corrected. CONTEMPORARY RED MOROCCO BY QUEENS' BINDER A, covers with gilt central quatrefoil and interlacing ribbon design incorporating trefoil shapes and embellished with delicate floral tooling, raised bands, spine compartments with gilt knotwork or "V" shaped pattern, a few older and very inconspicuous repairs to the corners and head and tail of spine. Wing L-173. For similar bindings see: Maggs Catalogue 1212, no. 56; and BL Davis 189. Corners a little bumped, binding slightly splayed, boards with a few light touches of wear, leaves lightly browned and offset throughout, but still a perfectly good copy internally, and the elaborately gilt binding still lustrous and altogether pleasing.

Representée en 71 tailles douces..par le celèbre e fameux Mr. ROMAIN DE HOOGUE. Leide, Isaac Severinus, s.d. (1680 circa)

      Isaac Severinus, 1690. in-4 (238x190 mm), 7 ff. nn. (titolo in rosso e nero, prefazione, indice e spiegazione delle figure), 71 fogli con incisioni a piena pag. all'acquaforte di Romain de Hooghe, stupende, raffiguranti animate scene di lotta, attacco e difesa. Legatura moderna ad imitazione antica in p. pelle decorata a piccoli ferri vegetali in oro ai piatti, al centro dei medesimi armi nobiliari. L'opera si divide in 13 sezioni, ognuna delle quali è dedicata ad un diverso aspetto delle tecniche di lotta; le tavole da 56 a 64 illustrano la difesa di un uomo disarmato contro uno armato di pugnale. Uno dei primi libri di difesa personale, ''contre les coups de pied et de poing, e même contre les coups de couteau'', ad opera del lottatore professionista Petter, capo della scuola di lotta del Prinsegracht di Amsterdam. Questa scuola ebbe un grande successo e dopo la morte dell'autore (1672) venne portata avanti dal suo allievo Robbert Cors, al quale è dovuta anche la pubblicazione postuma dell'opera. Questo straordinario manuale di lotta libera fu pubblicato per la prima volta in Amsterdam, con testo fiammingo, nel 1672, con le medesime incisioni del De Hooghe, considerate tra i capolavori dell'artista (1645-1708). Completo e ottimamente conservato all'interno, raro.

        Essay Concerning Humane Understanding

      1690. First Edition . LOCKE, John. An Essay concerning Humane Understanding. In Four Books. London: Printed by Eliz. Holt, for Thomas Basset, 1690. Folio (8 by 13 inches), period-style full dark brown calf, morocco spine label, raised bands. $75,000.Rare first edition, first issue, of Locke's remarkable study of the nature of knowledge, a fundamental work in the history of Western thought. Locke's investigation was continued by David Hume and Immanuel Kant; John Stuart Mill considered Locke to be the founder of the analytic philosophy of mind. An excellent, wide-margined copy of Locke's most famous work, a touchstone of the Age of Enlightenment, with extensive marginalia in a neat early hand indicating that this copy was well-read.""Locke was the first to take up the challenge of Bacon and to attempt to estimate critically the certainty and the adequacy of human knowledge when confronted with God and the universe"" (PMM 164). Locke's conclusion—that while man can never attain a perfect and universal understanding of the world, he can gain sufficient knowledge to secure his own well being—became a touchstone for the Age of Enlightenment. With the Essay Locke initiated the criticism of human knowledge and further opened the discourse on free inquiry. ""The Essay Concerning Humane Understanding… was the first attempt on a great scale, and in the Baconian spirit, to estimate critically the certainty and the adequacy of human knowledge"" (Fraser). ""Locke's philosophy has not only had a profound effect upon philosophical and political thought, but also laid the foundations of modern psychology, dominating the field until well into the 19th century"" (Norman). ""The importance of few philosophical books have been so quickly recognized as was the case with the present [Essay Concerning Humane Understanding]. It passed through many editions in English and has several times been translated"" (Pforzheimer). First issue, with ""printed by Eliz. Holt"" in the imprint on the title page (rather than ""sold by Edw. Mory""). ""Peter Nidditch has estimated about 900 copies were published, chiefly of the Holt issue. But it is possible there were as few as 500"" (Yolton, 69-70). PMM 164. Yolton 61A. Norman 1380. Wing L2738. Pforzheimer 599. Wither to Prior 527. Early owner signatures of R. Styleman on title page and Robert Dixon on front and rear free endpapers. Marginal ink notes in an early, neat, and legible hand on virtually every page of the first three (of four) books, indicating that this copy was very carefully read and studied.Text generally quite clean, period-style calf near-fine. An excellent wide-margined copy of this rarity.

        Prodromus Astronomiae, exhibens fundamenta, quae tam ad novum plane & correctiorem stellarum fixarum catalogum construendum. Quibus additus est uterque catalogus stellarum fixarum.

Danzig, Johann Zacharias Stoll 1687[with, as issued:] Firmamentum Sobiescianum, sive uranographia, totum coelum stellatum. Danzig, Johann Zacharias Stoll, 1690 [frontispiece dated 1687[bound with:] Annus climactericus sive rerum uranicarum observationum annus quadragesimus nonus.

      Danzig, David Friedrich Rhetius for the author, 1685 1690 - Together 4 vols in one, folio (396 x 233 mm), Prodromus: [x] 142, with double-page engraved frontispiece, engraved portrait of Hevelius, engraved headpiece of astronomical instruments, and engraved plate 'A*' at p 96; Catalogus: 143-350 [2], with engraving in text on p 347; Firmamentum: pp 21 [1], with double-page engraved frontispiece dated 1687, engraved head- and tailpiece, 54 double-page engraved plates, and 2 large folding engraved planispheres; Annus climactericus: pp [xii] 24; 196, with engraved device on half-title, astronomical woodcuts in text, and 7 engraved plates, one folding, labelled A-G; portrait and Firmamentum engraved title bound at front of vol, minor ink stain in margin of portrait, a very attractive, fresh copy in eighteenth-century German patterned boards.First edition of Hevelius's great star atlas, together with his Prodromus and Star Catalogue, as issued, and including the Annus Climactericus, normally found on its own. The Firmamentum Sobiescianum was the finest celestial atlas of its time and the culmination of Hevelius' astronomical observations and researches conducted at his private observatory in Gdansk, considered to be the best in Europe. 'From the more than six hundred new stars that Hevelius had observed, he had created a dozen new constellations of which the "Shield of Sobieski" gave the work its title. Another of the new constellations, a grouping of very faint stars which Hevelius named "Lynx", was an expression of pride in his good eyesight - his "eyes of a Lynx". Still another bore the name of "Sextans" in honor of his large brass sextant of his own design. Most of the names of these new constellations of Hevelius are still used by astronomers' (Brigham Young Hevelius catalogue). Hevelius' star atlas was one of the few such actually produced by a professional working astronomer, as distinct from a map publisher or amateur populariser such as Piccolomini, Bayer, Cellarius, Doppelmayr, etc. It set the standard for celestrial cartography and was the source for the production of celestial globes, such as those by Einmart and Gerehard and Leonhard Valk.The star atlas contains 73 constellations, of which 12 were introduced here for the first time by Hevelius. The star maps were drawn by Andreas Stech and engraved by Charles de La Haye, though North has suggested that, based on Hevelius' known involvement in making the plates for his other works, he had a hand in these as well. The frontispiece of the Prodromus depicts the author, Ptolemy, Brahe, Ulugh Berg, the Landgrave of Hesse and Riccioli seated around a table with Uranus in the centre. 'The Prodromus contains the fundamental technology and methodology associated with the production of the Catalogus Stellarum' (ibid). 'The [latter] is a catalogue of 1,564 stars arranged alphabetically under constellation names and by stellar magnitude within constellations. Latitude, longitude, right ascension, and declination are given' (J.D. North in DSB). John Flamsteed reprinted this catalogue, differently arranged, as volume three of his Historia coelestis, 1725.The manuscript of the Catalogus, now at Brigham Young, was rescued from the Observatory fire in 1679. The complete work was published posthumously and with an introduction by Hevelius' widow Elisabeth. Hevelius died in 1687 while the Catalogus was still in press. A letter from Hevelius' assistant Christoph Colbe, two months after Hevelius' death, indicates that the Prodromus and the Firmamentum Sobiescianum had in fact already been printed.The present volume also contains the Annus Climactericus, the last treatise Hevelius published during his lifetime and a work rarely found bound with the Firmamentum Sobiescianum. A compilation of his observational data and scientific contributions between 1679 and 1685, the Annus Climactericus is essentially a continuation of his 1679 Machinae coelestis pars posterior, with the additional notes on his collaboration with the young Edmond Halley and the late

It was responsible for the nation's artillery, military engineering including fortifications, and supplies including ammunition. Though the Master of the Ordnance was usually a distinguished soldier, the Office reported to the Crown, not the Commander in Chief, and within the Civil Service grew to be second in size only to the Treasury. The Surveyor in particular had to see that fortifications were in order or to design new ones. At this time their chief was Frederick, 1st Duke of Schomberg, (Master, 18th April 1689, died 1st July 1690), who was campaigning in Ireland.

        Notice sur l'église réformée de Cuq

      1576-1690 - ____ Archives du château de Lavernéde relatives à l'histoire de l'église réformée de Cuq-Toulza, (Tarn) de 1576 à 1690. Le village de Cuq-Toulza, (qui veut dire Cuq-en-Toulousain) est dans le Lauragais, à une quarantaine de kilomètres de Toulouse et dix de Puylaurens. Au seizième siècle, il était le centre d'une assez grande activité commerciale, dont celle du pastel qui faisait alors la fortune de la région. Selon Mézeray, le Lauragais était dès l'année 1574 une région presque toute huguenote. Le premier document de cette série, sur l'antiquité et l'importance de Cuq date de 1561. Le suivant, de 1576, confirme "le frère Caraguel en son église de Cuq". "Un des documents les plus précieux de cette collection est, sans contredit, le registre des procès verbaux des séances du Consistoire de l'Eglise de Cuq, pour l'année 1578, rédigé par le secrétaire du Conseil, et dans lequel il a ajouté la mention du payement des gages du ministre, la liste des "reçus en l'Eglise" et les "noms des baptêmes" pour la même année. Il comprend seize feuillets, presque tous couverts d'une écriture fine et fort lisible. Il est intéressant d'un bout à l'autre, par la quantité énorme de renseignements qu'il nous donne indirectement sur la vie de l'Église, ses habitudes, sa discipline et les noms d'une quantité de ses membres, et ceux de ses anciens, et tout d'abord le nom de son pasteur." (H. de France). En 1622 Cuq a été prise par l'armée Royale, mise à sac et brûlée. Le dernier document est une copie des ordres donnés par le comte de Broglie, commandant des armées en Languedoc, à ses officiers, pour chasser, atteindre et disperser les religionnaires qui voudraient conserver leur religion. Il est daté du 22 janvier 1690. Cela mit fin à l'église de Cuq. Ces documents ont été rassemblées par Edouard de Falguerolles qui les détenait par héritage d'Antoine de Bonvilar, seigneur de Saussens et de Lavernède, fondateur probable de l'église Réformée de Cuq et collationnés par Henri de France, de Montauban. Il les a fait précéder dans ces volumes de notices historiques de 91 pages et d'une table. En 1882, il a publié un assez long article sur ces archives dans le Bulletin historique et littéraire de la Société de l'histoire du protestantisme français (que l'on peut lire sur Gallica). Tous les documents ont été montés sur onglets, interfoliés et légendés. Bel exemplaire. *-------*. 2 volumes in-4. Collation : Demi-basane rouge à coins, dos à nerfs orné. (Reliure du XIXe.).

        Views of the Dutch royal estate Soestdijk]. [Amsterdam], Hendrik de Leth, [ca. 1731]. Royal folio (55 x 34 cm). With large double-page general bird's-eye view of the Dutch royal estate Soestdijk (image size 35 x 47 cm) by B. Stoopendaal after B. Stuyvenburgh, and 16 numbered engraved views of details of the palace, gardens and other buildings (image size 12 x 16 cm) printed on 8 leaves. Modern half parchment.

      - The Anglo-Dutch Garden 24 (ca. 1690 state of general view only); Springer, p. 45 (without the general view); Hollstein (Dutch & Flemish) XXVIII, B. Stoopendael 24 (ca. 1690 state of general view only); not in Berlin Kat. Very rare print series of the palace, gardens and other buildings of the Dutch royal estate Soestdijk, built mostly by Willem III, Prince of Orange, Dutch head of state and from 1689 also King of England. The estate passed to his son and then his grandson Willem Karel Hendrik Friso (1711-1751), Prince of Orange, who became the Dutch head of state in 1731 as Stadholder Willem IV. The large general view, with the city of Utrecht barely visible on the horizon, is rarely found with the series, but De Leth seems likely to have issued them together. Bastiaen Stoopendael (1637-1693) engraved and published the general view soon after Willem was crowned King William III of England in 1689. Hendrik de Leth (1703-1766) and his father Andries published views of Diemermeer by Stoopendael's son Daniel in 1725 and Hendrik seems likely to have added his name to the general view and published it together with the present numbered series soon after his father's death in 1731, perhaps for the occasion of Willem IV's appointment as Stadholder in that year. Well-printed with ample margins. The 16 views have been cut down, leaving a margin of about 2 mm, and mounted two to a leaf on 18th-century(?) unwatermarked laid paper. Very good copy of a very rare print series of King William III's Dutch royal palace and gardens.

"Richard Caulfield's The Council Book of the Corporation of Cork from 1609 to 1643 and from 1690 to 1800 are proceedings of the municipal authorities of Cork as they took place. Caulfield's work is an attempt to provide a faithful record of history rather than a romantic version. He identified two methods of writing history. The first is to present the facts as they are and leave it to the reader to form his own impressions. The second is to present what the impressions have made on the writer's mind and present them to the reader. Caulfield intended to marry both methods together by presenting a series of samples and extracts to give a truer picture of the times. He used sources in the Library of the British Museum , the Bodlein library, Oxford , the Treasury of the Corporation of Cork and other sources. Richard Caulfield (1823-1887) was secretary, librarian and custodian of the Royal Cork Institution and librarian for Queen's College Cork. It is said of him that on several occasion he was chosen to referee the various sides in significant historical and theological disputes. He was acquainted with and respected by the members of the clergy, Cork city dignitaries, lecturers, professors and the student body of Queen's College who attended his funeral when he died at the age of 64."

        An Act for the Naturalisation of Peter Reneu and Others. A contemporary manuscript copy made by a parliamentary clerk.

      [c.1677] Large vellum document; some dusting but in good condition, folded. This Act undated, but the House of Lords Journal records that is was read before Parliament and agreed to on 12th April 1677. (The Addition of Names added by the House of Commons to the Bill for Naturalization of Peter Renue and others, was read Twice, and Agreed to.) 65 x 29cm.The Hollow Blade Sword Company was founded by Sir Stephen Evance, a goldsmith. In 1691 war between France and England interrupted the importation of hollow ground rapiers from France which had become popular weapons in England and a business opportunity presented to manufacture the swords in England. Evance arranged for Huguenot metalworkers to move to Britain to manufacture the swords and obtained a charter of corporation as the 'Governor and Company for Making Hollow Sword Blades in England', granted 13 October 1691. The company obtained premises at Shotley Bridge in Durham. Granting of the charter plus two patents was on condition the applicants loaned the government £50,000, which sum was provided by Evance and Sir Francis Child in August 1692. Evance was appointed the first governor of the company, Peter Reneu the deputy governor, assistants Francis Tissen, Matthew Evans, John Carter, John Holland, Abraham Dashwood, John Samford, Robert Peter, Thomas Evans, Peter Justice, John Reneu, William Reneu, John Baker. The corporation had power to purchase land and issue stock to unlimited value. The company manufactured swords and by virtue of the charter had power to seize imported foreign hollow swords. Evance became an excise commissioner and succeeded Childs as jeweller to King William III. However, after the king's death in 1702, the business failed and Evance committed suicide. It was purchased by a syndicate of businessmen who used the corporate identity of the company to operate as a bank. At this time the Bank of England held a monopoly by act of parliament as the only organisation permitted to operate as a bank, so anyone wishing to carry out banking operations had to do so by devious means. The company was used as a stepping stone to the foundation of the South Sea Company which set out to supplant the Bank of England as banker to the government. The new deputy-governor Jacob Sawbridge and his directors were described by Daniel Defoe 'as a complete triumvirate of thieving'.

      1690. Woodcut device on general & divisional titles and numerous woodcut diagrams & illus. in the text. General title printed in red & black. 4 p.l., 124, [2], 125-128, [2], 129-180 pp. 4to, cont. vellum over boards. Leyden: P. vanderAa, 1690. First edition of one of the great classics of optics. This book contains Huygens' classical formulation of optical phenomena in terms of the wave theory of light, opposing the corpuscular theory advanced by Newton. Huygens showed how all points of a wave front originate partial waves and thereby propagate further wave motion. Thus reflection and refraction of light could also be explained. By the same means the complicated phenomena of double refraction and the polarization by double refraction were also explained. Huygens' wave theory of light remained unaccepted for over 100 years until Thomas Young used it to explain optical interference. The second part of this book - the Discours de la Cause de la Pesanteur - contains Huygens' mechanical explanation of gravity. His "point of view was that gravity should not be attributed to a quality or propensity of bodies, but should be explained, like every other natural process, in terms of motion."-Wolf, I, p. 164. This copy belongs to the issue in which Huygens' initials are on the title rather than his full name (no priority established). A fine and fresh copy. ❧ Dibner, Heralds of Science, 146.

Provenance: Mountstuart bookplate of the Earls of Bute to front pastedown. A fine copy of one of the rarest of Boyle's works. ----Fulton 189; Wellcome II, p.224; Wing B3928A; Neville, Historical Chemical Library I, 2006, p. 200. - "One of Boyle's last writings and important as the first work in English on determining specific gravity. The catalogue at the end is rare and was added to only a few copies." (Neville). "The book is not common and has not been reprinted except for the Geneva edition" (Fulton).It "was written by Boyle the year before his death. He explains in the preface that he borrowed the title from Santorio's Medicina Statica, and he might have apologized for the term 'medicina', for, in modern parlance, the book is essentially a monograph devoted to a special branch of physics... it was Boyle who first directed the attention of physicists and chemists to the importance of specific gravity. Pages 145 to 224 are of considerable interest in the history of mineralogy showing the specific gravities of various ores. Near Fine....
