Castillo y San Juan, Antonio del
First edition of an exceedingly rare Spanish imprint on Peruvian native's census. Castillo served for 24 years in Peru in both civil and military positions; he last worked as an accountant for the tributes paid by the natives. Spanish imprints on Peruvian native's census´ are not common. At the end, Fernandez de Madrigal a member of the Consejo de su Magestad and a Major in the War Council for the Indies and Peru, certifies that Castillo gave a report on the General Numeration of the Indians of such Provinces, and for the reintegration of the Mita of the minerals from Guancabelica and Potosi. A most rare imprint, of which we find no copy anywhere; only a "Copia de un informe, que hizo al... Conde de la Moncloa... Don Pedro Antonio del Castillo y San Juan, Contador que fue de retassas y tributos de aquel Reyno", published in 1689 is found at a Spanish institution.

appresso Gio. Battista Indrich, In Venetia 1693 - In-16° (148x81mm), pp. (12) [Amunguento da Cancheri in Lode della Compagnia della Lesina, Officiali della Compagnia della Lesina e indice], 411, (2), brossura decorata posteriore. Esemplare con aloni diffusi, che non inficiano però mai la lettura del testo. Rara edizione veneziana (l'edizione originale fu stampata dai Giunti in data imprecisata della fine del XVI secolo) di questa famosa opera, molte volte ristampata, consistente in una raccolta di statuti umoristici di una immaginaria accademia fiorentina di spilorci. La Compagnia - precisa la Vinciana - si prefiggeva di canzonare lo spirito sparagnino e di consigliare grettissime economie, nonché di raccontare burlesche avventure di noti ed ignoti arpagoni. Tutto è però dovuto alla penna faceta di una o poche persone che abilmente si celano negli pseudonimi ancora oggi avvolti nel mistero. L'unico autore la cui identità pare certa è il compositore di un sonetto sopra la peste, il poeta Sciarra, ossia Piero Strozzi (1510-1588), insigne capitano e cugino di Caterina de'Medici, ma resta in forse se il suo contributo si sia limitato a quell'unico sonetto o si estenda al resto dell'opera. Adrien Baillet (nelle Satyres personnelles, II, 345, edite con lo pseudonimo Albert Lainier de Verton) ritenne questi capitoli compilazione di tal Vialardi, mentre, come informa sempre la Vinciana, il Merati sospetta che Tommaso Buoni possa esserne stato l'autore o comunque il riordinatore. Il Buoni, lucchese, era stato infatti l'autore di un libro assai simile a questo, Della compagnia de'Tag … [Click Below for Full Description]

A MAJOR CLASSIC IN UROLOGY !! This beautifully illustrated work is of paramount importance in the history of urology. Francois Tolet (1647-1724), who learned lithotomy from Jannot at the Hôtel Dieu, first used Celsus'method and later changed to the 'grand appereil' which, in his hands, reached the peak of its technique. The first detailed description of puncture of the bladder was that of Tolet, who introduced a trocar and tapering cannula through the perineum to one side of the raphe. He modified also some instruments but retained the incisor and dilator of Marinus Sanctus. - cf. Murphy, Hist. of Urology, pp. 71, 77 & 101-102; Heirs of Hippocrates No.660; Kiefer Cat. 570 Ein HAUPTWERK der Urologie !

Guillaume Louis Colomyez 1693 - - Guillaume Louis Colomyez, Toulouse 1693, In 8 (10x17,8cm), (18) 449pp., relié. - Rare édition originale parue quelques jours à peine avant l'Histoire de Ximenez de Fléchier et dont la comparaison suscita une polémique jusqu'au XIXe siècle. Alors que l'ouvrage de Fléchier tend à illustrer la sainteté du Cardinal, celui de Marsolier, plus critique, s'adresse "aux libertins, à ce parti des philosophes qui commençait à lever la tête". Plein veau d'époque. Dos à cinq nerfs orné de caissons et fleurons dorés. Pièce de titre en maroquin rouge. Petit accroc sans manque à la coiffe inférieure, épidermures sur les plats, coins supérieurs enfoncés et coins inférieurs émoussés. A propos de cet ouvrage, D'Alembert proclamera officiellement la supériorité du livre de Marsolier, en précisant toutefois que Fléchier "aurait fait disparaître son concurrent, si au lieu de considérer Ximenès comme un saint et un politique, il en avait fait un sublime hypocrite faisant habilement servir à ses vues la croyance des peuples et maniant avec adresse, pour cimenter son pouvoir, les armes que la religion rendait si puissantes entre les mains de ce ministre. " (D'Alembert cité par Étienne Delacroix dans son Histoire de Fléchier). Ex libris manuscrit de l'époque au verso de la page de garde.

Une des planches représente des instruments, qui, sauf erreur, sont représentés pour la première fois dans cette édition. Cf. En Français dans le Texte, 107 et Garrison & Morton, 6147 pour l'édition originale du traité de Mauriceau paru en 1668 (premier traité d'obstétrique véritablement scientifique, exposant les connaissances avec rigueur et clarté.) ; Speert, pp. 558-566.

Joannem Baptistam Langlois, Parisiis [ Paris ], 1693, 1st edition thus. Contemporary full calf, G+. tp+[xxii]+288pp, engraved frontis, printers device to the title, binding rubbed & worn at the edges, with a little loss at the head of the spine, upper hinge cracked but firm, old library mark in the lower compartment of the spine, text clean & bright, title & frontis a little grubby, a previous owner has partly copied the frontis on the recto of the sheet in pencil, pages yellowed a little, a good copy. Hardback , no dustjacket. ¶ A new translation of Petronius' picaresque novel, which had survived in fragmentary form. This edition, edited by Nodot [ 1650 - 1710 ], contains passages which he claimed had been discoverd in Belgrade during the siege of that city in 1688 ( he describes the discovery in the preface ) but were in fact from his own pen. The 'rediscovered' passages here are printed in italics. Nodot himself was soon exposed as the source of the new material but despite this his passages remained in translations for many years before being fully expurgated. The Satyricon, written around 61AD & first printed in 1664, stands alone in classical literature in that it touches on all matters connected with the everyday luxuries, vices & social manners of the Imperial Age in Rome. The characters are most likely based on real people. Trimalchio, the vulgar & ostentatious millionaire of the Satyricon is the literary model for F Scott Fitzgerald's Jay Gatsby - it's original working title was 'Trimalchio's Banquet'. The book contains in chapter 62 an early Werewolf story. Felli … [Click Below for Full Description]

TITI PETRONII ARBITRI [PETRONIO ARBITRO, Cayo.]
Tip. Regneri Leers. Roterodami, 1693. . 15,5 cm. [18]-280 pág. Marca tipográfica xilografiada en la portada. Enc. en pergamino. * El Satyricon es una novela satírica de la cual se conservan algunos fragmentos; narra las aventuras de dos libertinos, Encolpio y Ascilto, e incluye algunos cuentos milesios sexualmente explícitos. El Satyricon es el primer ejemplo de novela picaresca en la literatura europea, y puede considerarse el modelo de novelas posteriores. Ofrece una descripción única, y a menudo enormemente deshinibida, de la vida en el siglo I d. C. A pesar de que su narrador se expresa en el mejor latín de la época, la obra es especialmente valiosa por los coloquialismos en los parlamentos de muchos personajes que ofrecen un interesante objeto de estudio sobre el latín vulgar de la época. El episodio más famoso es el Banquete de Trimalción, una descripción sumamente realista de un banquete ofrecido por un nuevo rico y ostentoso liberto. literatura clasica [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Leonard, Frederic [ed]
Paris, 1693. Six volumes. Quarto. Modern half morocco and marbled boards, gilt morocco labels. Old small library stamp on titlepages. Scattered light tanning and an occasional fox mark, small bit of worming in lower margin of some leaves in second and third volumes, else internally clean. A very good set. This massive compilation is the first major collection of French treaties, beginning in 1435 and running to 1692, including many treaties relating to America. Many important French state papers appeared here for the first time, especially ones from the 15th and 16th centuries. It was not until the early 17th century that published versions of treaties began to appear simultaneously with the event, and even then treaties between kings were often secret, or contained secret sections, for decades. Thus, the Leonard set offers either first or very early printings of many documents of the greatest importance, including a number that are important for the Americas. The NUC entry for this work describes it in six volumes and locates five sets. Sabin states the work consists of six regular volumes plus two additional volumes of twenty- nine treaties with separate titlepages for each, covering treaties from 1697 to 1719. This set includes the original six volumes published in 1693, and is complete in and of itself. Frances Davenport identifies eleven treaties for which the Leonard set provides the first or first French printing between 1556 and 1684, as follows: 1) Davenport 20. Treaty between France and Spain, 1556, by which the French agreed to stay out of Spanish America and the … [Click Below for Full Description]

Swammerdam, J.
Ultrajecti [Utrecht], Ottho de Vries, 1693. 4to (19.3 x 15.6 cm). Half-title, title in red and black with woodcut vignette, 212 pp., [xvii]; 13 (mostly) folded engraved plates, one folded table. Contemporary half vellum over marbled boards, spine with gilt title on morocco label, gilt name embossed on front board. This is the third (second Latin) edition of a work of great scientific merit. Swammerdam laid the foundation of modern insect-classification, which still rests to a great extent upon their evolutionary history. He also proved wrong almost everything then believed about insects, especially spontaneous generation, and the whole ontogenesis, which he demonstrated in very detailed drawings. The live history from egg to adult is shown on several plates. Apart from various insects, the ontogeny of a frog is also included. Swammerdam's works are renowned for their depiction of even the most complicated details in the minute creatures (and their even smaller parts) that he investigated. Although Swammerdam died at a young age, he is considered in some circles to be one of the very important Dutch scientists of the 17th century. The original edition of the present work appeared in Dutch in 1669. With a bookplate pasted on the front pastedown and some browning in the text and on the plates. "H. Laspeyres" is printed in gilt on the marbled front board. This is probably the German entomologist Jakob Heinrich Laspeyres (1769-1809). Cat.
