Ferreira deve fazer gloriosa epocha nos annaes da Cirurgia universal, e muito particularmente nos da do nosso Reino, como illustre, sabio, e consumado pratico. Ainda hoje se admiram os seus grandes talentos na sua obra Luz verdadeira etc., que por suas qualidades theorico praticas e pela universal aceitação com que foi recebida, fez esquecer o livro de Cruz, e os de outros hespanhoes que então corriam entre os portuguezes, ficando o Ferreira em tudo e por tudo superior e apreciavel, mesmo em toda a Hespanha.

FER, Nicholas de (1646-1720)
Paris: Chez l'Auteur, 1693-1696. 8 parts in 1, oblong folio. (11 x 15 inches). Title pages to each part printed in red and black, allegorical frontispiece engraved by Schoonebeck (bound following the part 2 title), engraved dedication to Bourgogne (bound following the part 1 title), letterpress table of plans for parts 1-5 (with contemporary manuscript listing of parts 6-8 on verso), 9 preliminary engraved plates (7 with corresponding letterpress or engraved text leaves), 175 engraved plans and views (1 folding). Contemporary mottled calf, spine with raised bands in six compartments, lettered in the second, the others with a repeat decoration in blind (worn). A noted French military atlas.

Among the most interesting of these is the plan of Quebec (Kershaw 279), bound as the map 23 in part 5. "In August 1690, Sir William Phips left Boston to attack and capture Quebec. Previous military success at Port Royal had given the English an excess of confidence, which Phips fully exploited in planning his expedition against Quebec, but which quickly evaporated when the under-equipped force discovered the extent of the defenses at Quebec. The operation was disastrous, and the English struggled back to Boston losing a number of ships on the way.

Antwerp - Joannis Baptisteaw Verdussen, 1693 Book. Good. Hardcover. A very scarce early edition ofVita et doctrina Jesu Christi Ex Quatuor Evanvelistis Collecta, by Nicola Avancini. The Life and Teachings of Jesus Christ, Collected from the Four Evangelists. In daily meditations. In Latin. Nicola Avancini (1612 - 1686) was an asceticalwriter. He entered the Society of Jesus in 1677, and for some years held the chair of rhetoric and philosophy at Gratz, and subsequently that of theology at Vienna. He was rector of the Colleges of Passau, Vienna, and Graz, Provincial of the Austrian Province, Visitor of Bohemia, and at his death Assistant for the German Provinces of the Society. In the midst of these duties he published works on philosophy, theology, and sacred literature. His Meditations on the Life and Doctrines of Jesus Christ has maintained some popularity. This work, originality in Latin, was translated into the principal European languages and went through many editions. But these meditations, in their simple as well as their extended form, have assisted in the task of daily meditation. Previous owner's ink inscription and annotation to title. Condition: In a contemporary leather binding. Externally, sound but with some wear to extremities, rubbing and marks to boards and loss to head and tail of backstrip. Joints starting slightly. Internally, firmly bound. Bright but with the odd spot and occasional handling marks. Slight evidence of past worming to rear pastedown andchipping to endpapers. Overall: GOOD.

Each of the satires is preceded by a fly-title and argument, and followed by explanatory notes. Five of Juvenal's satires (I, III, VI, X & XVI) were translated by Dryden himself, one each by his eldest sons John and Charles, two by Tate, one each by Bowles, Stepney, Harris, Congreve, Power and Creech, and one (anonymously) by Duke. All of Persius was translated by Dryden, prefixed by Congreve's commendatory poem. The dedication, to the Earl of Dorset, is one of Dryden's most delightful pieces of literary criticism.

NIEUHOF, J.
Amsterdam, W. Waasberge, 1693. Folio (315 x 205mm). pp. (6), 208, 258, (9), with engraved frontispiece, engraved portrait of the author, 1 folding engraved map of China and 34 double-page engraved plates and about 100 engravings in the text. Contemporary calf, richly gilt ornamented spine in 7 compartments with red gilt lettered label (head of spine chipped). Third edition of this beautifully illustrated work on China. The first edition was published in 1665. "Jan Nieuhof was a "Dutch traveller and adventurer" (1618-72). Between 1640 and 1644 Nieuhof was serving as an official of the Dutch West India Company in Brazil, but by 1655 he was in Batavia, in Java, as a servant of the Dutch East India Company. From there he accompanied Pieter de Goyer as a member of the Dutch embassy to Peking... In 1665 Nieuhof published what is regarded as the definitive account of the Dutch embassy to Peking, and it is for that he is best known" (Howgego p. 752). The beautifully engraved plates show Chinese towns, Chinese life and animal- and plant life. The present work describes the first embassy of the Dutch East India Company to the court of the Emperor of China in the years 1655-57 in command of Pieter de Goyer and Jakob de Keyser. It is the most profusely illustrated work on China of the period. The Paolinxi plate mentioned in the index is only present in the Latin edition and is always lacking. A fine and clean copy.

Roma, cura, sumptibus, ac typis edita a Ioanne Iacobo de Rubeis 1693.. oblong folio (36 x 48 cm), title, dedication leaf, plates numbered 3-83 (complete), 18th-century calf, greek key fillet, gilt, some neat repairs to binding, pictorial armorial bookplate of Anna Damer. Indice delle stampe de' Rossi (annotated reprint Rome 1997), p. 381; this corrects and supplements Cicognara 3607; Brunet's brief note ( I, 759) has misled cataloguers for 200 years. The first book with this title appeared about 1666; it comprised 81 plates, and in this form it was for sale as late as 1690, the date conventionally assigned by cataloguers to the undated "first edition". At this time de' Rossi transferred all the plates of triumphal arches (nos. 3-31 of the undated edition) to another of his publications (Veteres arcus Augustorum), and for the 1693 issue added 31 new plates (to make a total of 83); in this new form the book is the most important collection of engravings of the ancient bas- reliefs housed in the museums and palaces of Rome. Two of the new plates (nos. 60, 61, from the Aldobrandini Wedding) were etched by Bartoli in 1677, and are occasionally found with the earlier form of the collection. The others are a mixed bunch: some are by Robert van Audenaerd (plate 30 is signed with his initials); many others are reversed copies by Bartoli of plates from Icones et segmenta (Rome, 1645) by Francois Perrier, whose monogram appears on plates 53 & 54. Then, in 1738, the de' Rossi plates were transferred to the Calcografia Camerale, who, in about 1766, added a plate 84, signed by France … [Click Below for Full Description]
