        Catalogus librorum manuscriptorum Bibliothecæ Cottonianæ

      At the Sheldonian Theatre, Oxford 1696 - [10],L,159,[24]; engraved frontispiece portrait; folio; original stamped vellum boards slightly warped and lightly soiled; short split at top of upper hinge; scattered foxing. A very good copy overall, with the ownership inscription of Andrew Fletcher of Saltoun (1655-1716), Scottish patriot, politician and writer. One of the three collections acquired by the British government to form the British Museum Library, the library of Sir Robert Bruce Cotton is "arguably the most important collection of manuscripts ever assembled in Britain by a private individual." (Wright, Sir Robert Cotton as Collector). Its greatness lies not only in the presence of spectacular treasures (such as the Lindisfarne Gospels and the only surviving manuscript of Beowulf) but also as the product of Cotton's forty-year effort to preserve manuscript materials, principally relating to England's history and governmental affairs, that would have otherwise likely been lost. Located in Cotton House in the Palace of Westminster, the library was housed in a narrow room measuring 37' x 6', in an unusual arrangement. A bronze bust of each of the Roman emperors, from Julius Caesar to Domitian (plus Cleopatra and Faustina) was mounted at the head of each bookpress. This "Emperor" designation for a bookpress formed part of the pressmark and was the means by which a particular manuscript volume was located. Compiled by Thomas Smith (1638-1710), the catalogue lists about 6,500 manuscripts in 950 volumes. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Illustrated with an engraved frontispiece, and 35 numbered etchings, including 1 double-spread full-page etching, 1 double-spread half-page etching, and 34 half-page etchings, including an extra plate numbered XVII. II: Le difficoltà, che sono nella Navigatione del Tevere da Roma sino al Mare, e suoi rimedij. [12] ff. Illustrated with 11 numbered etchings, including 1 double-spread half-page etching and 10 half-page etchings.

[31] ff., 15, [1] pp. Illustrated with 32 numbered or lettered etchings, including 2 double-spread full-page etchings, 2 double-spread half-page etchings, 1 full-page etching, and 27 half-page etched plates.

[24] pp. Illustrated with a total of 15 etchings, including 1 double-spread full-page etching, 1 double-spread half page etching, and 13 half-page etched plates. Folio, 422 x 275 mm, bound in full contemporary Italian vellum over boards, brown ink lettering on spine. Rome: Stamperia di Gio. Giacomo Komarek, 1689. |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition of this most unusual compilation of text and illustration, with the rare and earliest state of the double-spread comet plate, fully signed by Meijer (see: Rossetti p. 532). The wonderful etched illustrations were cut by Falda, Collin, Wittel, and others, and include topics as diverse as civil engineering, especially flood control along the Tiber River; astronomy, in particular comets; optometry usages and inventions of new eyeglasses; several experimental plates demonstrating the physics of water; four etched plates showing of interior designs of seventeenth-century houses including a library; carriage and cart construction; a prospect of St. Peter's Square just after Bernini's construction of the colonnades; several views of Roman squares with Egyptian obelisks, including a double-spread prospect of del Popolo; and one plate on the art and uses of silk. One of the most remarkable plates illustrates an early prototype of a "horseless carriage." A major portion of the first work, divided into three parts, describes and illustrates a hydraulic engineering problem that has gained world prominence and concern during recent years, i.e., the control of rising water and the construction of levees, dikes, bridges, escape channels, holding tanks, and numerous illustrations and textual descriptions of complicated apparati to control rising water levels for the security of cities and towns along the Tiber river and the Mediterranean Sea. There is also a large section on mechanical apparati for moving and raising obelisks in Rome. Cornelis Meijer (1600-1700), a seventeenth-century Dutch hydraulic engineer of wide renown with an innovative imagination, a member of the Accademia Fisico-Matematica Romana, and inventor of various river and current control mechanisms, was hired by Roman authorities at the end of the seventeenth century to travel to Italy and oversee hydraulic problems in the Papal States. A number of his engineering projects and inventions are illustrated and described in the Nuovi Ritrovamenti. Some insignificant soiling to a few leaves, minor stains to vellum binding; overall a very fine copy. The second work is cited in only two incomplete copies selling at auction via ABPC and only three copies worldwide in OCLC; Harvard, Univ. of Penn. and the Henry Ford Museum, Michigan. Rossetti III, 7023a & 7023b (p. 532 Addenda). Olschki, Choix XI, 17589. Kissner 273. Poggendorff II, 134. Bierens de Haan 191. See: Cicognara 3791-92.

        Scoprimento del mondo umano di Lucio Agatone Prisco opera dell'abate D. Angelo Seravalli canonico regolare del salvatorc, composta sopra l'idea del mondo grandc, contenente gli amori dell'uomo con l'anima, e le relazioni di nuovo terre, mari, isole, citta e monarchic, formate secondo l'cssere delle passioni, costumi, affetti, virtu, e vizj umani

      Siena: Bonetti, 1696. Thick quarto, with an engraved frontispiece and full-page portrait of the author; intermittent water-staining, some gatherings a little stained, a few preliminary margins well renewed with old paper (no text loss), a few other small marginal defects but a good sound copy in recent vellum over boards. Rare and enigmatic imaginary voyage. Rare and enigmatic imaginary voyage filled with metaphysical allusion, long overlooked by scholars and bibliographers of the genre.This mysterious book is the work of the Augustinian priest Angelo Seravalli (1630-1708), who served as abbot of San Jacopo Soprano in Florence, where he was born and died. Aside from a little poetry his literary output is restricted to the present text, where he narrates a journey by himself and a mystical figure known as Lucio Agatone Prisco. In a vast narrative blending the real and the imaginary, Seravalli leads Prisco through the lands, oceans, cities and kingdoms of the world, explaining their nature and formation through human virtues and vices. As a result of the journey, Prisco achieves a spiritual enlightenment of sorts and proposes a vision for future peace on earth.Seravalli's ambitious literary project had little impact on his contemporaries (although it is mentioned in a handful of late seventeenth-century letters, including a correspondence from Italian bibliophile Antonio Magliabechi to the philosopher Leibniz dated 3 April 1696). Howgego notes (in his study of apocryphal voyage narratives published by Hordern House in 2013) 'It has since been largely ignored by scholars in the field of imaginary voyages, and no further discussion was found in the literature. The book is rare, only nine library copies being recorded worldwide.' Nonetheless, it provides modern readers with an engaging baroque allegory that combines real people, cities and events with mythological characters and esoteric lore - and this at a period when the Inquisition was active.'Prisco', the main character of the narrative is derived from an late medieval epitaph inscribed on the 'Pietra di Bologna', a stone plaque famous with alchemists and students of the esoteric arts. A mystical riddle of compounded contradictions, the epitaph has defied interpretation for centuries. In more recent times the 'Pietra di Bologna' was treated in detail by Carl Jung in his study of alchemy and the unconscious. Howgego gives a translation as follows: 'Aelia Laelia Crispis, neither male nor female, nor androgynous nor child, neither young nor old, nor chaste, nor whore, but all this together. Killed not by hunger nor by iron nor by poison, but all these things together. Neither in heaven nor in water, nor in earth, but everywhere he lies. Lucius Agatho Priscius, neither husband nor lover, nor relative, neither sad nor happy, nor crying, not pyramid, nor tomb, but all this together, knows and knows not to whom it is dedicated'.The book includes an ornate engraved frontispiece and a portrait of the author, both by Nicolas Dorigny. Of special interest are the woodcut capitals decorated with scenes of esoteric significance.

        De l'Incredulite, Ou l'on examine les Motifs & les Raisons generales qui portent les Incredules a rejetter [sic] la Religion Chretienne; Avec deux Lettres Ou l'on en prouve directement la Verite. Par Jean le Clerc.

      Amsterdam, Henri Wetstein, 1696.. In-8, plein velin grise de l'epoque, (1) f., (6), 376 p. Edition originale. Ne a Geneve en 1657 d'une famille liberale de refugies picards installes en Suisse, Jean Le Clerc s'installa a Amsterdam. Personnage central de la "Republique des Lettres", lecteur de Spinoza, savant a l'activite multiforme et impressionnante, il fut le temoin attentif et passionne de la vie culturelle de son temps. Il soumet dans cet ouvrage, "avec une etonnante loyaute intellectuelle", sa vision originale et novatrice d'un christianisme raisonnable, moral et non theologique. "Le Clerc considere le christianisme comme un regulateur social qui doit jouer un role majeur dans une societe marchande et industrieuse en pleine expansion, comme celle des Provinces-Unies, ou l'ambition, et le gout des affaires, des richesses et des plaisirs qu'ils procurent doivent etre temperes afin qu'ils ne conduisent pas a l'injustice sociale" (B Tambrun-Krasker, 'Jean Le Clerc ', 2010). (Cf. P. Verniere, 'Spinoza et la pensee francaise', p. 73 sq et passim et 'Libertinage et philosophie au XVIIe siecle: Protestants, heretiques, libertins', publie par A. McKenna et P.-Fr. Moreau). (Haag, 'France protestante', VI, p. 467, n°XXIV). Bon exemplaire, relie a l'epoque..

        G[othofredi]. G[uillelmi]. L[eibnitii]. Relatio ad inclytam Societatem Leopoldinam Naturae Curiosorum, de novo antidysenterico Americano magnis successibus comprobato

      Gothofredi Freytagii (Gottfried Freytag), Hannov. et Gurlpherpit (Hannover, Wolfenbütte 1696 - First edition. Papered spine. Printer's device on last page. 8º; (a)1-(b)8, (c)1-3 .; 37, (1) p. Scarce pharmacological work on the ipecacuanha root, that can be used as an emetic, nauseant, expectorant and diaphoretic. "Relatio ad inclytam Societatem Leopoldinam Naturae Curiosorum, de novo antidysenterico Americano magnis successibus comprobato" (Relation to the Illustrious Leopoldine Society of Naturalists Concerning the New American Anti-Dysentery Drug, Attested with Great Success) is Leibniz's most comprehensive and influential contribution to the history of medicine and pharmacy. Leibniz wrote the treatise after he read the study on ipecacuanha root written by Willem Piso and Georg Marggraf (published in Historia naturalis Brasilia [1648]) and evidently after conducted experiences with the root himself. The root was made famous after it was used successfully to treat the King of France, Louis XIV's dysentery in 1672 by the Dutch physician John Frederick Helvetius (1625-1719). The work has been published in the same year as an appendix to Martin Lister's "Sex exercitationes medicales de quibusdam morbis chronicis" (Frankfurt and Leipzig, 1696) and also to "Miscellanea curiosa, sive Ephemeridum medico-physicarum Germanicarum" (Nuremberg, 1696). Lister's work was printed by Freytag too, the difference is merely the lack of the colophon on the "Lister-edition". [Ref.: Smith, J. E. H.: Divine Machines. Leibniz and the Sciences of Life.
