        1695 Christelycke Onderwysingen ende Gebeden. Important, rare Dutch church work.

      Fricx, Brussels, Netherlands 1695 - A very rare and important work in the Dutch church (see below). I find only one copy, printed before 1700, in the world's libraries, and no copies available for sale that were printed before 1750 (I searched using ViaLibri). This was an important work of sober piety to the Southern Netherlands in the late 17th century, and was widely distributed. This copy was printed in Brussels, which at that time was the capital of the Netherlands. "Polman has written about the specifically frugal character of the Dutch church book Christelycke Onderwysingen ende Gebeden (Christian Lessons and Prayers) and the way it differs from baroque books from the Southern Netherlands. See: Polman P., Katholick Nederland in de achttiended eeuw Part 1 (Hilversum, 1968) 131-133. Clemens also explored the sober piety in church books from the mission Hollandica. He looked at the enormous distribution of Christelycke Onderwysingen in the Southern Netherlands, and its limited popularity in the Northern Netherlands, suggesting that sober piety was not a 'Northern-Netherlandish' kind of Piety. See Clements Th., De godsdienstigneid in de Nederlanden Part 2, 172." – Meditatio – Refashioning the Self: Theory and Practice in Late Medieval and , M. East, page 311. Physical Attributes - Measures 17 x 10 x 3 cm. Five raised spines with compartments framed in filet with floral centerpieces. Blue and white endbands. Tooling around board edges. AEG (but faded). Condition of the Book - See pictures. Contemporary binding is well worn at the edges, with chipping at top and bottom of spine (but both endbands are present). Leather itself has crazed a little. Ex library, with pencil call number on pastedown. Owner inscription on free front endpaper (Dutch, old hand). Title page stamped from and back with stamp of now defunct church library in New York. Text block is mostly clear and clean. Occasional spot. No writing. I found one one c.m. fore-edge tear. Endpapers toned. Library card pasted to the back pastedown. Despite wear, it feels structurally sound and the text block remains in a pleasing state. 454 grams [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Urbs Domingo in Hispaniola

      Artist: Aa van der Peter ( - 1733) Leiden; issued in: Leiden; date: ca 1729 1695 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 28 x 34,5; - description: Map shows the city St. Domingo in Hispaniola as bird s eye view. With decorative offshore ships.; -vita of the artist: Pieter van der Aa ( 1659 - 1733) was a Dutch publisher best known for preparing maps and atlases, though he also printed pirated editions of foreign bestsellers and illustrated volumes. He also printed many maps that were often out of print, which he reissued. Some of his most popular maps were of the African continent, detailing locations such as Morocco and Madagascar. Many of his later works were printed for the general public in French and Dutch.Pieter van der Aa began his career at Leiden in 1683 as a Latin trade publisher, publishing classical texts pertaining to medicine and science. As he progressed, he began to publish atlases and maps, compiling numerous multi-volume collections of works. His ambition to become Leiden's most famous printer was fulfilled in 1715 with his appointment to head printer for the city and its university. One of Pieter van der Aa's largest compilations relates to the history of Italy and Sicily, an area of immense personal interest. Though he took credit for many of his compilations, several, such as the Dutch collection of travels to the East and West Indies, were admittedly simple improvements to others' works.

        JUSHIKEI RYAKI WAGO: TREATISE ON ACUPUNCTURE & MOXA. Alternate Title: JUSHIKEI H

      [Edo ? 1695, Akatsujyu]. Brown stitched wrs., covers worn, solid, bit of old minor marginal worming, text mostly not affected, [50+5] double folded leaves, 3 vols. bound in one vol., 15 full page illustrations, new title label. R A R E *** *** *** . . . GODRON E. MESTLER'S PERSONAL COLLECTION COPY . . . *** A very early illustrated and most excellent monograph. This legendary work is written in Kambun with Furigana [Chinese characters with Japanese reading sounds] for easy Japanese reading. . * PER MESTLER IN HIS "GALAXY": . "...this work was "explained" by Okamoto and drew heavily upon JUSHIKEI HAKKI by Katsu Ju in 1684 Jushikei Hakkei is likely the work of a Chinese physician, then followed with a theoretical discussion by Katsu. The book is chiefly on acupuncture but equally on moxa, not on how to cure but on the more fundamental nature of the subject. This discusses the basic Chinese and Japanese belief in a relationship between the internal organs and their diseases & curative treatment for them at specific sites on the outside of the body. The balance is on moxa. Thus, Okamoto "explained" what he read and studied in this work, based on the earlier Katsu title. Mestler states on p.476 this is a 3 vol. set, Vol. 2 has 16 stunning illustrations of "channels & points" for acupuncture and moxibustion. . Moxa or moxibustion uses the herb artemisia vulgaris latifolia which is burned either on the skin directly, or on top of small slabs of garlic over the "points." Damp moxa is also formed at the top end of acupuncture needles, then lit on fire to provide maximum therapeutic benefits, after insertion in the appropriate "point." . *** RELATIONSHIP TO DATE & EDITION: Our 2nd volume shows the back colophon, the first printing to be 1684, and a 2nd printing to be 1764. Although Mestler cites on p.476, the work was published in 1693. . * This title, and also KATSU, Juu.: JUSHI KEI HAKKI: THE FOURTEEN CHANNELS: An Early Japanese And Chinese acupuncture & Moxabustion Medical Treatise [our book no. 200334 also part of the Gordon E. Mestler collection]. Chinese Title: SHI SI JING XU, [1684] are related. The 2nd part of this was with title JUSHIKEI KETSU CHI-HO, and later re-written & re-explained by Okamoto as JUSHIKEI RYAKU WAGO, [this title now described], published later. See GALAXY, pp.475,476 & plate I B opposite p.474 for additional details. . *** THE AUTHOR'S ALTERNATE NAMES: The author was also known as Ipposhi, Ichiku, Ittokusai and also: Tametake or Hakujin, this was a common practice for Japanese to have 'studio' or alternate first names. See GALAXY, p.474 footnote 10 at the bottom of the page. Okamoto's famous brother, was an author and playwright who was eminently known as the "Japanese Shakespeare." See Whitney p.317. . ***.

        Of the Consolation of Philosophy.

      London: printed by J.D. for Awnsham and John Churchill; and Francis Hildyard bookseller in York,, 1695. In five books. Made English and illustrated with notes, by the Right Honourable Richard Lord Viscount Preston. Octavo (187 x 115 mm). Contemporary sprinkled calf, gilt spine titles, blind decoration on spine, red sprinkled edges, contemporary inscription. Engraved portrait frontispiece. Covers scuffed, extremities rubbed, spine ends chipped, joints cracked at spine ends; frontispiece and a few leaves somewhat browned, still a good copy. First edition of this translation which includes "The Life of Boetius" and "The Testimonies of several writers concerning Boethius translated" in the preliminaries. The translator, Richard Graham, first Viscount Preston (1648–1695), clearly identified closely with Boethius, having himself been sentenced to death for his Jacobite activities, although he saved himself from the scaffold in 1691 (and earned himself opprobrium) by testifying against his accomplices. The translation was his occupation during his last years in retirement at Nunnington Hall in Yorkshire. The preface contains a number of references to his situation, including the complaint that his judges had been more lenient than friends who despised him for giving way under trials that they had never undergone.

Antonj Nuck (1650-1692), was also often called Antonius Nuck van Leiden, after his native city. He commenced his medical studies in Harderwyjk, but changed to Leiden where he received his doctorate in 1677 with the dissertation diabetes. He then settled as a practitioner in Delft. In 1683 he was called to Den Haag as a lecturer of anatomy at the Collegium anatomicum chirurgicum, working there as a teacher of anatomy before eventually returning to Leiden, where he was appointed to the chair of medicine and anatomy. His excellent theoretical lecturing, but even more his practical-anatomical teaching soon earned him a reputation that attracted students even from far away to Leiden. Besides anatomy, physiology was Nuck's most important field of research. Besides anatomy, physiology was Nuck's most important field of research. He did his most important work in investigating the lymphatics and glands, in which he used the injection technique much as Ruysch had done with blood vessels."Sialographia contains some of Nuck's best work on glands and ducts, particularly the salivaries and tear ducts. The six large engraved folding plates were drawn by Nuck". Heirs of Hippocrates No. 673 (1st. Ed.1690)

        Britannia. Newly Translated into English with large additions and improvements.

      Printed by F. Collins for A. Swalle and A. and J. Churchill. Folio. (405x250mm) pp. frontispiece engraved portrait of Camden; title page; [32], cxcvi (in double columns), 832 (double column), 833-848 (single column), 849- 1116 (double column), [18]pp Annals of Ireland, [24]pp index, [2]pp appendix. Fifty double page engraved maps, many by Morden and nine pages of coins and other antiquities, including Stonehenge as required. Contemporary panelled calf, spine with six raised bands and seven compartment. Title in gilt on a red label to second compartment. Covers have wear and stripping. Spine is worn at head and foot with loss. Cracking to hinges. An engraving of Paxton's Crystal Palace in Hyde Park has been stuck onto the front pastedown. The contents are in near fine condition with only one tear (to Xx3) which affects the edge of one illustration but with no loss to the text. This is a very fresh and clean text block. The only map with any damage is a small tear to one of the folds of the map of Norfolk. This is, perhaps, to be expected as the previous owners of this copy were the Bulwer-Long family from Heydon Hall, Norfolk who are kinsmen of the Bulwer Lyttons. The top of the title page has the inscription "Lt Colonel Bulwer from [illegible]". Aside from the condition of the binding, which can be repaired and restored, this is a lovely copy of one of the central works of early-modern British history and with an excellent provenance.William Camden (1551-1623) began Britannia in 1577. It was conceived as a full topographical and historical survey, his intention being to "restore antiquity to Britaine, and Britain to his antiquity". It was first published, in Latin, in 1586 and was hugely popular running to five further editions over the following twenty years, each one with new material added. By the time of the 1607 edition, maps and illustrations were included. The first English language edition appeared in 1610. Britannia is a work of chorography (Camden calls it a Chorographica descriptio), a genre which owes its origins and definition to Ptolemy. It is distinct from history and geography but includes both. Ptolemy saw chorography as the study of the smaller, constituent parts of the geographical whole. Camden's work represents probably the fullest example of the Renaissance revival of this branch of classical learning. Camden aimed to show, county by county, how the traces of the past existed in and informed the contemporary landscape. The most important fruit of this method was his detailed picture of Roman Britain, the first such study. Camden worked partly from first hand research, travelling widely in England and Wales (he learnt Welsh and Old English) but he also created a network of assistants who provided material for those parts of the islands he could not visit. The importance of Britannia was immediately recognised throughout Europe with later editions being published in Germany and the Netherlands. It remains a very popular work today, partly for the range of its scholarship and for the beauty and accuracy of the illustrations.

        Tab. VI. Asiae, Arabiam Felicem, Carmaniam ac Sinum Persicum comprehendens.

      Amsterdam, 1695. - Hand-coloured engraved map (485 x 340 mm). Striking old color example of the second edition of Mercator's Ptolemaic map of the Middle East, first issued in the 1695 edition of Mercator's Geographia, based upon the works of Claudius Ptolemy. Mercator's map was a landmark in the mapping of the Arabian Peninsula, being the last published edition of Ptolemy and without question the most heavily researched and studied of all editions by its maker. Ptolemy had originally drawn on the accounts of travelers and sailors and though the information was secondhand and often inaccurate it represented the most advanced account of the world's geography at that time. In the case of Arabia, Ptolemy overestimated both the width of the southern part of Arabia and the size and shape of the Persian Gulf. Arabia Petrea and Arabia Deserta are both placed in the north and Arabia Felix is the term applied to the whole peninsula, rather than to the southern portions of it. Ptolemy's map, as interpreted by European cartographers such as Mercator, was hugely influential and served as a standard for European mapping of the peninsula for many years. Tibbetts 39.

        A New Map of the English Empire in America viz Virginia, Maryland, Carolina, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jarsey, New England, Newfoundland, New France &c

      London, 1695 - Separately issued map of English Colonial America Double-page engraved map (490 by 630mm to the neatline, full margins showing the plate mark). A rare, separately-published, early map of eastern North America west to the Mississippi River. One of the earliest obtainable English maps to focus on the entirety of English North America. This is the original state of a map made famous by John Senex in 1719. A nod to English imperial intentions, this map of the eastern part of North America notes coastal development while suggesting available lands in the undeveloped interior of the continent. It features a prominent, albeit fictitious, mountain range extending from Michigan into Florida and connecting with the Appalachians. The error remained on maps into the nineteenth century. The English colonies are shown drawn on recent cartography such as the Hermann map of Virginia and Reed map of William Reed's manuscript map of New England, and the recent grants of Pennsylvania and West New Jersey. The map includes an influential (though not completely positive) treatment of the Great Lakes, the aforementioned false transcontinental mountain range, a depiction of the Mississippi River, and many details of the English colonies. Morden's map was an early example of English cartographers contesting French claims to the North American interior: in addition to the American Midwest, Morden depicts much of New France as under English dominion. Nevertheless, the English colonies along the Atlantic Seaboard are carefully delineated according to English sources, but Canada, the Mississippi Valley, and the Great Lakes are based on the French maps of Dablon (1672) and Thevenot (1681). With an inset of Boston Harbour to the left of the cartouche derived from the Pound map of 1691, and "A General Map of the Coasts & Isles of Europe, Africa and America" as a globe gore lower right.

        An essay concerning humane understanding. In four books.

      London: printed for Awnsham and John Churchil, at the Black Swan in Pater-Noster-Row, and Samuel Manship, at the Ship in Cornhill, near the Royal Exchange, , 1695. Full Calf. Fine. 2º in 4s: [40],407,[1],[12, Index and publisher's advert]pp (91-94 mis-numbered 93-96; 121 mis-numbered 123), with engraved frontispiece portrait of Locke by P. Vanderbanck after Sylvester Brounower. Recently rebound to period style by Clive Jones in full paneled calf, boards ruled and decorated in blind, spine in seven compartments between raised bands ruled in gilt, red morocco lettering piece gilt, all edges speckled red. A Fine, bright, tight, clean copy (text block apparently washed), with loss of several letters P4 and closed tear, without loss, through several lines Hh. Provenance: Early ownership signatures (of H. Jowett and J. [probably John] Loxley) on front free end paper, placing this copy at Cambridge (respectively, Magdalene College and St. Catharine's College, dated "Novr 23rd 1830") and of Trafford Barriston to title page. Wing L2741. Yolton 63. Pforzheimer 599 and PMM 164 (for first edition). Third Edition of the "most popular and enduring of all Locke's writings (Yolton)," a line-by-line reprint of the Second Edition (1694) with only minor adjustments and the errata corrected, but still with many misprints. First published in 1690, the Essay attracted immediate attention, both favorable and not, much of it directed toward Locke's concept of the mind as tabula rasa. "This was unacceptable—even shocking—to many of Locke's readers, including the most profound of his early critics, Leibniz. For Locke the human understanding was initially like ‘white Paper, void of all Characters': all the ideas which it subsequently contains are derived from experience, either external or internal. The account of how the mind puts together various complex ideas from the material provided by sensation and reflection occupies Book 2, the longest in the Essay. Book 3 is on words, which have meaning only by acting as signs of ideas; Book 4 is on knowledge and opinion. . . . Perhaps the most original aspect of the Essay is, however, the conception of philosophy which it embodies. Locke abandoned the whole enterprise of first philosophy as practised from Aristotle to Descartes: he did not see himself as laying a metaphysical foundation on which natural philosophers could then build, but rather (as he put it in the ‘Epistle to the Reader’) ‘as an Under-Labourer … clearing Ground a little, and removing some of the Rubbish, that lies in the way to Knowledge’. (ODNB) In the substantially revised second edition, published May, 1694, the section in the chapter ‘Of power’ dealing with freedom was entirely recast, and there was a new chapter, ‘Of identity and diversity’, in which Locke equated personal identity with continuity of consciousness, and not with continuity of any spiritual substance." According to Pforzheimer, "The importance of few philosophical books have been so quickly recognized . . . It passed through many editions in English and has several times been translated." (Yolton tallies 56 different editions and translations by 1800, not counting abstracts and abridgments.) N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.

        La vie du venerable pere Ignace Azevedo, de la Compagnie de Jesus. L'histoire de son martyre, & de celui de trente-neuf autres de la même Compagnie.

With engraved armorial headpiece above the dedication to King Stanislaus I of Poland. Contemporary mottled calf, gold-tooled spine, gold fillets on board edges.

      - Borba de Moraes, p. 93; De Backer & Sommervogel I, col. 1080, 4; Chadenat 754; not in Bosch; Sabin. First edition of a French biography of the Jesuit martyr Ignacio de Azevedo, by Father Gilles-François Beauvais (1695-1773), who modelled his book on the Italian biography by Father Cabral (pseudonym of Giulio Cesare Cordara) (1704-1785), published at Rome in 1743 under the title Relazione della vita e martirio del venerabile padre Ignazio de Azevedo. In the present biography, dedicated to King Stanislaus I of Poland, Beauvais made several additions, for example the "Martyre du Vénérable Père Diaz et de ses Compagnons", pp. 193-262. Most of the book is devoted to the life of the martyr Ignatius de Azevedo from Porto (1528-1570), who worked in Brazil as Visitator for the Jesuit Order. On 15 July 1570, he and his 39 companions at sea were killed by French Calvinist pirates near the Canary Islands. In 1854, these "40 martyrs of Brazil" were canonized. Beauvais's biography may be regarded as a loose translation, with additional material, of Cordara's biography, which was translated into Spanish in the same year and into German in 1856. A second edition of Beauvais's version was published at Brussels in 1854. The martyrdom of Ignacio de Azevedo and his companions has inspired many literary works up to the present day. Some faint marginal stains, a small corner of the last 2 leaves (and larger corners of the following endleaves) restored, not approaching the text. Boards scratched. In good condition.

Manque les gardes blanches et 4 feuillets (de la page 187 à 195) + Gravure dépliante hors texte volante représentant les animaux acatiques sus-cités. petit in-12 de 9 x 15cm. Reliure plein cuir de l’époque, frottements, petits accroc à la coiffe de queue et au chant supérieur du second plat. Reliure qui a tendance à bailler. Papier avec salissures, tache brune en marge d’une vingtaine de feuillet (pas d’atteinte du texte), mentions manuscrites sur les contres plats, planche dépliante jaunie. Cahiers dereglés. Signet de coton torsadé. Impression assez mauvaise, bavures, taches, irrégularités (caractéristiques communes avec les exemplaires compulsables) Très rare édition complète de la planche dépliante Ignoré par les bibliographes l’ouvrage est pourtant très curieux. Montresse rapporte le cas de Marie Mercié, qui de Décembre 1689 à Mai 1690, vomit plus de quatorze Salamandres et quantités d’autres animaux aquatiques (tétards, dytiques ). Le livre commence comme un « récit extraordinaire » mais s’attache à rejeter la superstition et proposer une théorie scientifique expliquant le phénomène. L’auteur tient un discours très moderne en rejetant notamment l’hypothèse de la génération spontanée dans le corps de la jeune fille et conclut en préconisant l’emploie de vermifuge (il devance ainsi Andry de quelques années !) « les uns avec trop de précipitation, disaient que cette fille était ensorcelée; parce qu’elle vomissait des animaux en vie, qui faisaient horreur, à tous ceux qui les regardaient; n’ayant pas même vue, ni entendu dire, qu’un pareil cas fut jamais plus arrivé. Les autres moins crédules que ceux-là, s’imaginaient, qu’il fallait qu’elle les eut avalé, par mégarde, en buvant de l’eau de quelque fontaine, étant encore petits, sans dire de quelle manière ni comment. D’autres enfin raisonnant en plus savants soutenaient, que la première source, de tous ces hydeux insectes, venait de l’amas de corruption, qui s’était formé dans le corps de cette patienten duquel à leur avis, ils avaient tiré leur premier principe » Aucun exemplaire en ligne en ce moment, 2 exemplaires passées en salle de vente ces 15 dernières années, l'un en 2006 l'autre en avril 2017 adjugé 3100€.

Contemporary brown speckled calf, raised bands to spine, edges sprinkled red. Neatly rebacked with spine label, corners repaired. Rubbed, scuffed, edges worn and a little chipped. Still a very good copy overall.'The conduct of war was prominent among Edmondes's (1567/8?-1622) interests. He urged the necessity for soldiers to read about and discuss the practice of their profession, to supplement their practical experience. He was encouraged by Sir John Scott to undertake an explanatory study of Caesar's Commentaries, published in 1600 as Observations, upon the Five First Bookes of Caesar's Commentaries and followed in the same year by Observations on the Sixth and Seventh Books. Edmondes explained that the work was directed at English soldiers and he supplemented his comments on Roman military practice with observations on contemporary campaigns, including those of the English forces in France and the war in Ireland, as well as the battle of Dreux of 1562 between the royal army and protestant forces in France. He also discussed the question of how to deal with an invasion of England, whether to oppose an invading army at the coast or to withdraw and offer battle later. His preference was to fortify the coast of Kent and oppose a landing. As well as military matters, he included an explanation of the causes of tides. [...] Thomas Fuller regarded him as an example of an author who achieved 'perfection of theory' in writing on military matters without having practical experience.' (ODNB). Edmund's Caesar was popular throughout the 17th century, being reprinted in 1655 and 1677 before this edition of 1695 appeared. Accordinging to Lathrop, 'it has no literary quality, either the springing, elastic energy of the original, or any compensatory power or grace. It does, however, do its pedestrian duty of communicating information accurately and clearly, though clumsily.'

Tears without loss of text to pages 1 - 4, small damage to outer margin of text on page 59/60. Name of female preowner verso titlepage (dated April 1695). Extremely scarce and highly unusual in a signed edition. Thomas Vincent (May 1634 – 15 October 1678) was an English Puritan minister and author. He is referenced as a main character featured in "The Living," by Anthony Clarvoe, a play about 1665 plague London. Thomas Vincent, the second son of John Vincent and elder brother of Nathaniel Vincent (both also prominent ministers), was born at Hertford in May 1634. After passing through Westminster School, and Felsted grammar school in Essex, he entered as a student at Christ Church, Oxford, in 1648, matriculated 27 February 1651, and graduated B.A. 16 March 1652, M.A. 1 June 1654, when he was chosen catechist. Leaving the university, he became chaplain to Robert Sidney, 2nd Earl of Leicester. In 1656 he was incorporated at Cambridge. He was soon put into the sequestered rectory of St. Mary Magdalene, Milk Street, London (he was probably ordained by the sixth London classis), and held it till the Uniformity Act of 1662 ejected him. He retired to Hoxton, where he preached privately, and at the same time assisted Thomas Doolittle [nonconformist minister] in his school at Bunhill Fields. During 1665, the year of the Great Plague of London, he preached constantly in parish churches. His account of the plague in God's Terrible Voice in the City by Plague and Fire, 1667, is graphic; seven in his own household died as a result of the plague. Subsequently he gathered a large congregation at Hoxton, apparently in a wooden meeting-house, of which for a time he was dispossessed. He was among the signers of the 1673 Puritan Preface to the Scots Metrical Psalter. He did not escape imprisonment for his nonconformity. He died on 15 October 1678, and was buried (27 October) in the churchyard of St Giles-without-Cripplegate. His funeral sermon was preached by Samuel Slater. (Wikipedia)

        The History of the Troubles and Tryal of The Most Reverend Father in God, and Blessed Martyr, William Laud, Lord Arch-Bishop of Canterbury. Wrote by himself, during his imprisonment in the Tower

      Richard Chiswell, London 1695 - Folio (12 x 7 1/2"). [22], 616pp (Text), [2]pp (Publisher's advertisement). 19th-century blind- and gilt-stamped full calf, with gold lettering and tooling to spine. Raised bands. All paper edges red. Marbled endpapers. Engraved frontispiece portrait of William Laud (unsigned). Main title in red and black lettering. Published fifty years after the author's execution, "The History of the Troubles and Tryal (sic) of The Most Reverend Father in God, and Blessed Martyr, William Laud, Lord Arch-Bishop of Canterbury" is a first-hand account of the events leading to the Archbishop of Canterbury's arrest in 1640 and his beheading five years later. Religious adviser to King Charles I of Great Britain, Laud's persecution of Puritans and other religious dissidents resulted in his trial and execution by the House of Commons. Indeed, the Long Parliament of 1640 accused Laud of treason and, in the Grand Remonstrance of 1641, called for his imprisonment. Laud was imprisoned in the Tower of London, where he remained throughout the early stages of the English Civil War. In the spring of 1644 he was brought to trial which, however, ended without a verdict: as it proved impossible to point to any specific action which could be seen as treasonable. Parliament took up the issue and eventually passed a bill of attainder under which he was beheaded on January 10, 1645 on Tower Hill, notwithstanding being granted a royal pardon.Moderate rubbing along edges. Binding rebacked but retaining the original spine. Lower front corner bumped, thus slightly affecting the lower corner of the first 122 pages. Minor offsetting to frontispiece and main title.

Woodward describes how he took every opportunity to examine digging operations, and despatched questionnaires to all parts of the world. "The information was a valuable contribution towards the knowledge of the regularity of the earth's structure everywhere" (Wolfe, History of Science, Technology and Philosophy, pp. 352, 364). In this work, Woodward (dates) recognized the existence of various strata in the earth's crust and the true nature of fossils, failing only to make the assumptions that earned William Smith the title of father of English geology. His most important contribution to science is his catalogue of the fossils which in the course of long years he had collected in England, and which now form an interesting portion of the Sedgwick Museum at Cambridge.

        Pharmacopoea Wirtenbergica, in duas partes divisa. Accedunt syllabus medicamentorum compositorum.Stuttgart, Johann Christoph Erhard, 1754. Folio (31 x 20 cm). With a folding engraved frontispiece, showing the arms of Wurttemberg, several portraits of famous medical figures and a view of the city of Stuttgart. Early 20th-century half calf by Gustaf Hedberg in 18th-century style.

      - Blake, p. 350; Kremers & Urdang, History of pharmacy, 4th ed, p.54; WorldCat (5 copies). Revised and expanded third edition of the pharmacopoeia for the Duchy of Wurttemberg. The pharmacopoeia was composed by the ducal physicians Johann Albrecht Gesner (1695-1761) and Johann Wendel Bilfinger (1695-1756) and first appeared in 1741. Earlier, Wurttemberg had used the pharmacopoeia of the city of Augsburg. Traditionally, pharmacopoeias gave nothing more than the official composition of the most frequently prescribed medicines. From the late 16th century onwards, the publications began adding informative sections, combining textbook and formulary. The Pharmacopoeia Wirtenbergica was the epitome of this type of pharmacopoeia and was highly valued for its good descriptions. Revisions appeared frequently, with the dispensatory going through six editions between 1741 and 1789, as medical science changed in the second half of the 18th century. The Wurttemberg dispensatory "was the official book of its time most esteemed and used, even beyond the German frontiers It was one of the most comprehensive pharmacopeias, supplying information about all drugs, new and old." (Kremers & Urdang). With ownership inscriptions. With the binding slightly worn at the extremities, water stains in the upper corner of the first 100 and last 50 pages and some spots in the frontispiece; a very good copy.

        Britannia

      London: by F. Collins for A. Swalle and A. & F. Churchil,, 1695. Newly translated into English: with large Additions and Improvements. Published by Edmund Gibson. Folio (391 x 234 mm). Contemporary calf, rebacked and recornered with the original spine laid down, title gilt to second compartment, gilt edge-roll to boards, red speckled edges. Engraved portrait frontispiece, 50 double-page maps (of which 2, Kent and Norfolk, also folding), 8 numismatic plates, numerous engravings of antiquities to the text, including a vignette of Stonehenge and a full page of illustrations at p. 696. Some stripping to boards, initial blank browned, pale tide-mark to fore margin of sigs. I-O in the introductory section and the first few leaves of the Counties section, shallow chip to fore edge of N3, the text never affected, otherwise a few trivial marks only. An excellent, clean copy. First Gibson edition of Camden's great antiquarian tour of Britain, the first to contain Robert Morden's "best-known maps … Based on improved sources and further corrected by local enquiry, they remained standard maps for fifty years and helped establish a more settled orthography of English place names" (ODNB). Britannia was first published, in a Latin octavo edition, in 1586. A 1600 edition contained maps after Mercator and Kaerius; the maps of Christopher Saxton, the first to depict individual counties, appeared in the 1607 edition, and were an importance source for John Speed's Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine (1611-12). Morden's efforts "reflect the great advances in surveying that had been made since the days of Saxton and Speed" (Parry, The Trophies of Time: English Antiquarians of the Seventeenth Century, p. 333), while Gibson's translation is considered superior to the previous translation by Philemon Holland (1610). Among its other noted improvements is the inclusion of a section on rare plants at the end of each county, by the naturalist John Ray. "In the fashion of the original, [Gibson's edition] positively energized travellers, local scholars, intellectual networks, and learned societies across the Isles" (Cramsie, British Travellers and the Encounter with Britain, 1450-1700, p. 485).
