[Ray, John]
London: S. Smith & B. Walford, 1693. First edition. Engraved portrait of the author, inserted facing p. 1. [xvi], 336, [8] pp. 8vo. John Ray, born in Essex in 1627 as the son of a blacksmith, was one of the major early English parson-naturalists. A graduate of Trinity College, Cambridge, he was a major fellow and lecturer at Trinity College, where he also preached. Within the bounds of natural history, he was one of the first naturalists give a biological definition of the concept of a species. He is also known for having promoted the classification of plants and animals based on observation of physical characteristics, rather than the preceeding binary either-or system. Where most of Ray's work focused on plants, this work is a significant application of Ray's new classification system to animals instead. It gives a synopsis of quadrupedal animals and of snakes, and is often referred to as a 'synopsis of animals and reptiles' in translation. It concludes with an index that allows the reader to easily focus their attention on the selections related to creatures varying from the armadillo to the zebra. ESTC R22056; Wing R405; Keynes 91; Wellcome IV, p. 480. Provenance: Robert S Pirie (bookplate). Contemporary vellum, titled in ink on spine. Portrait cropped at fore-margin, text toned and foxed.

GONZALEZ TELLEZ (Emmanuel).
1693La meilleure édition de ce commentaire des Décrétales de Grégoire IX. // Le quatrième volume contient les 4ème et 5ème parties et l'index général. // Grégoire IX (Hugolin), né à Anagni (italie centrale) v. 1145, mort en 1241, fut pape de 1227 à 1241. Successeur d'Honorius III, il continua contre l'empire la lutte traditionnelle de la papauté, lutte qui avait pour but la conquête de la suprématie politique aussi bien que l'omnipotence spirituelle. Il excommunia Frédéric II qui éludait sans cesse sa promesse de partir en terre sainte. Ce pontife était fort savant en droit canonique, et il donna une collection de Décrétales qui firent longtemps autorité (Mayence, 1473). // Emmanuel Gonzalez Tellez fut professeur de droit à l'université de Salamanque en 1655, conseiller du Tribunal souverain de l'Inquisition. Ce commentaire sur les « Décrétales » de Grégoire IX paru en 1673, cette édition lyonnaise de 1693 est considérée comme la meilleure. // Reliures d'époque un peu frottées, manque de cuir aux coiffes, mors légèrement fendillé en tête et en pied, néanmoins bon exemplaire, en reliure du temps, de cette impression lyonnaise.

Chronographus, Philo.
Augsburg, Jakob Koppmayer for Jakob Enderlin, 1693. Folio (305 x 190 mm). 2 parts in 1 volume. (4), 31, (1), 64 pp. With 12 (instead of 16) plates containing 24 copper engravings. Modern boards. Fascinating, little-received chronographical study focusing on the history of the Eastern Mediterranean and Asia Minor, then under Ottoman rule. The anonymous late 17th-century German author hides behind the name of "Philo Chronographus" and is evidently identical with the "Philo Cosmographus" who produced the similarly themed geographical work, "Trinum Marinum", which is announced on the title page and was often issued together with this, though produced by a different publisher and catalogued separately. The first part of the work contains a general introduction which relates the 24 hours of the day to the time from Creation to the year 1800 (which is conceived of as the end of the world, leaving another mere 107 years of history to come!). The second part features a chronicle of the "Rule of the Ottoman Porte", from Sultan Osman to Suleyman II. - Numerous pages of plates (each page containing two copper engravings) depict costumes, animals and plants, maps and views of towns (Sultan Osman, the Ottoman Residence and a view of Constantinople, dolphins and cranes, Turkish ladies in their various garments, a cypress and a mastix tree, etc.). - The number of plates, and indeed even the arrangement of engravings on a single page, varies from copy to copy, but this wants 4 plates as compared to the table of plates. Well-preserved. VD 17, 12:645730N. Weller, Pseud. 439. [Attributes: Hard … [Click Below for Full Description]
