SCARLATTINI, Octavio
Augustae Vindelicorum & Joannis Caspari Bencard, 1695. Complete with all blanks present. Separate titles to each work in red and black, each with engraved printer's device, and separate half titles in black. With frontispiece by Heckenauer, 42 copper engravings, woodcut initials and head- and tailpieces. Text in double columns. Wonderful contemporary rolled pigskin over thick boards, clasps present; red edges, worming throughout much of text. First Latin edition translated by Matthias Honcamp from the original Italian of 1683-1684. Scarlattini's masterpiece is a tour-de-force compendium fusing emblematic and occult knowledge with a treatise on human anatomy and physiology. Caillet has called it a "unique work in its genre." Emphasizing the dual nature of humanity - external and internal, spiritual and material - the author considers the human body both in parts and as a whole, discussing their traits and associations in astonishing detail. Scarlattini interprets human anatomy through a dizzying array of sources, including information on symbolism, history, rites, proverbs, and much more. Particularly interesting are his discussions of herbs and their astrological correspondences for the treatment of disease, as well as providing the formulae for preparations to be used in alchemical research. The occult properties of saliva, urine, semen and the like are also explained. This exhaustive treatment of the body was intended to appeal to a wide audience - the preacher, the poet, and the natural philosopher could each find in this text a useful companion. Embedded in the text are … [Click Below for Full Description]

This is a very valuable history of the reign, as well as a monumental biography, of Frederick Wilhelm, Elector of Brandenburg, under whose rule Prussia recovered greatly from the devastation of the Thirty Years War. Samuel von Pufendorf, German jurist, statesman and historian. His historical works are numerous and the present one belongs to the most important of these works. Not only are they based on a thorough use of the archives, but they also set forth a view of events marked by great vision and keen political insight. The present work was written when Pufendorf was invited by Elector Frederick William to come to Berlin, where many Huguenot refugees, after the Revocation of Edict of Nantes by Louis XIV, were being welcomed into what became known as The Refuge.

Then Adam, surrounded by a large variety of animals is about to leave the Garden of Eden. Mat burn around neat line otherwise good condition with stunning original color.Willem Blaeu (1571-1638) was a prolific Dutch mapmaker who started one of the most famous map publishing firms of the 17th century. It was at this time that the Dutch controlled the map trade, and their ornate and beautiful maps had immense popularity. Blaeu was instrumental in driving this dominance in his lifetime, and this legacy was continued by his sons. This series was published by his son Johannes (c. 1599-1673), who took over the business upon his father's death. The map was not included in any Blaeu atlas. The studio fire of February 22, 1672, and Blaeu's death the following year prevented its inclusion in an atlas. The plate was acquired by Gerard Valck, who had Blaeu's imprint erased and his own added. The previous imprint is still visible beneath Valck's name. Gerard Valck (1652-1726) was a based publisher, engraver and globe maker from Amsterdam. He moved to London … [Click Below for Full Description]

Pierre Bayle (1647 - 1706) plante ursprünglich eine "kritische Neubearbeitung des Moréri" (Zischka XXXVIII), daraus entwickelte sich aber eines der ersten vom Geiste der Frühaufklärung geprägten Nachschlagewerke.

1695. 2 vol. in-4, pp. (2), 42, 316; 319, (3), (2) 68, (4), 140, con belle testatine finemente incise, vignette e finalini in xilogr.; 13 tavole calcografiche numerate f.t., di cui le prime 2 ripiegate; in antiporta ritratto dell'A. firmato da F. de la Mare Richart e A. Halweg, frontespizio del primo volume in rosso e nero. Legatura in p. pergamena rigida, titolo ms. ai dorsi. Bella edizione (la prima postuma del 1690) della fondamentale opera che riassume la pluriennale esperienza e le sue riflessioni, specialmente sui metodi di forzatura delle verdure e sulla potatura degli alberi. Nel 1670, l'A. fu nominato da Luigi XIV «direttore dei giardini, frutteti e orti di tutte le case reali», carica creata appositamente per lui; nel 1678 il Re lo insignì addirittura di un titolo nobilare. Sempre a partire dal 1578 fu ideatore e curatore del Nuovo Orto Reale, la cui pianta si può ammirare nella prima tavola ripiegata del primo volume. Al servizio del re migliorò la produzione dei giardini, acclimatando specie delicate, come fichi e meloni e riuscendo a produrre frutti e verdure fuori stagione, come lattuga a gennaio e fragole a marzo. Quintinie fu dunque un precursore della coltura delle primizie. Ottimo esemplare (sporadiche e leggere bruniture).

Antique print, titled: 'A New Gradually Encreasing Compass-Map of the Coming in of the Channel, or the Heads ' - A detailed chart of the part of the Channel / La Manche between Boulogne to Calais on the French side, and Camber/Dungeness to Dover on the English side. The text is given in three languages (English, French and Dutch). Description: Published by G. van Keulen (Amsterdam). Johannes van Keulen (1654-1711) - Gerard van Keulen (1678-c.1727). The Dutch produced a remarkable number of enterprising and prolific map and chart makers but not even the Blaeu and Jansson establishments could rival the vigour of the van Keulen family whose business was founded in 1680 and continued under their name until 1823 The firm was founded by Johannes van Keulen who was registered as a bookseller in Amsterdam in 1678. In 1680 he published the first part of his Zee Atlas which, over the years, was expanded to 5 volumes and continued in one form or another until 1734. More ambitious and with a far longer and more complicated life was his book of sea charts, the Zee-Fakkel, published in 1681-82 Although the firm was founded by Johannes van Keulen, he was primarily a publisher; it was his son, Gerard, a talented engraver and mathematician, Hydrographer to the East India Company, who became the mainspring of the business, which not only published charts but also books on every aspect of geography, navigation and nautical matters.Artists and Engravers: Made by an anonymous engraver after 'N. de Vries'.
