L'opera fu pubblicata postuma, due anni dopo la morte, dall'orientalista Galland. Furono stampate quattro edizioni, l'ultima nel 1781-83.Atabey, 563: "Herbelot spent the last thirty years of his life working on his Bibliothèque orientale, a landmark in Arabic studies which was unfinished at his death and completed and published two years later by the orientalist Antoine Galland in 1697. He knew a range of languages, including Arabic, Turkish, Persian, Aramaic, Syriac, and Hebrew, and was familiar with their literature and history, of which this work forms an encyclopaedia."Brunet II, 664; Zischka 15; Graesse II, 376First edition, folio, pp. [32], 1059, [1]; title page printed in red and black, woodcut ornaments and initials; full contemporary calf, gilt-decorated spine in 6 compartments, red morocco label in 1. Good general condition, edges somewhat worn, some restorations at spine, short-title reinforced and restored, titlepage and next two leaves with minor defects and small lacks at bottom corner. Based on the immense Arabic bibliography (the Kashf al-Zunun) of Hadji Khalfa (Katip Çelebi), of which it is largely an abridged translation, but it also contains the substance of a vast number of other Arabic and Turkish compilations and manuscripts. Four editions of this encyclopedia on the culture and history of the Near East were printed, the last being 1781-83. Atabey, 563: "Herbelot spent the last thirty years of his life working on his Bibliothèque orientale, a landmark in Arabic studies which was unfinished at his death and completed and published two years later by the orientalist Antoine Galland in 1697. He knew a range of languages, including Arabic, Turkish, Persian, Aramaic, Syriac, and Hebrew, and was familiar with their literature and history, of which this work forms an encyclopaedia." A supplement compiled by Claude de Visdelou was published in 1780. Brunet II, 664; Zischka 15; Graesse II, 376

      Sumptibus Jo: Jacobi Hertz, Venetiis (Venice), 1697. Two volumes (of three). pp. 1036; 512, 333 + 12 engraved plates of scientific apparatus, some folding + Plus an portrait of Boyle engraved by Sister Isabella Piccini (1644-1734).

He is largely regarded today as the first modern chemist, and one of the pioneers of the modern experimental scientific method. He is best known for Boyle's law, which describes the inversely proportional relationship between the absolute pressure and volume of a gas, if the temperature is kept constant within a closed system.

        Physica curiosa, sive mirabilia naturae et artis. . . Editio tertia juxta exemplar secunda editionis auctioris.

      Herbipoli:: Excudit Jobus Hertz, Sumptibus Wolfgangi Mauritii Endteri, 1697., 1697. 22 cm. 4to. [20] ff., 1389 pp., [10] ff. Engraved half-title, title printed in red & black, hundreds of striking illustrations (several folding), index; foxed. Modern quarter antique-style calf, gilt-decorated compartments, dark red gilt-stamped label, marbled boards, endleaves. Short old Greek ink inscription on corner of title, translated, means: "everywhere the truth" [literal], thus "seek the truth everywhere." Very good copy. PRIMARY SOURCE FOR THE MAGICAL MONSTER & OTHER CREATURES. Third Edition (first issued in 1667) of an amazing encyclopedia of natural wonders, highly desired for its depictions of extraordinary figures and monstrous beings of both human and animals as well as fish, botanical or arboreal, and teratological phenomena. Caillet says this is the most complete treatise on demonology. "Schott's chief works, the MAGIA UNIVERSALIS and the two companion volumes, PHYSICA CURIOSA and TECHNICA CURIOSA, are huge, uncritical collections, mines of quaint information in which significant nuggets must be extracted from a great deal of dross. Like many of his time, Schott believed that the principles of nature and art are best revealed in their exceptions. . . Although the 'natural curiosities' include some useful matter (such as on South American mammals), his syncretic attitude and taste for the abnormal made him far readier than most of his contemporaries to credit tales of ghosts, demons, and centaurs. All this writing about magic, both natural and supernatural, involved him in slight difficulties with the censors." - A.G. Keller for the DSB, XII, pp. 210-11. Engraved frontispiece engraved by Joachim von Sandrart, shows a Garden of Eden scene (no people), with both normal and abnormal animals (including the odd giraffe, a boar with two bodies, etc.). The remainder of the book distinguishes itself with a broad spectrum of brilliant and fantastical engraved figures, most derived from the imagination rather than fact, but sorting through that morass would have been difficult. The plates include: dragon (being slayed), elephant (p.886), mapach (p.905), rhinoceros (p.921), horse with fashionable stripes (p.603), pelican (p.1021), bear (p.927), su (p.923), lion (p.893), laguara (p.891), leopard (p.890), rabbit (p.890), paca (p.849), camel (p.829), giraffe ("Camelopar dalis"] (p.818), bison (p.808), armadillo (p. 788). In addition: constellations (p. 701), chicken monster ["Gallus Monstrosus"] (p. 619), beast with bisected arms, winged and hoofed, horns on fore & rear of head; three-headed monster with scales (p. 616). Humanoid-like monsters are aplenty: human monster with webbed appendages and 6 miniature heads (on arms, legs & chest), a pencil-thin nose, and bird-like feathers to the eye-temples, pig-ears; hoofed-creature standing with tail and maybe wearing the matador's cape!(p. 615); (p. 611): 3 figs., incl. man with a congenital twin whose chest passes through the standing man's chest "Monstrum monocephalon. . . " - two other monstrous human portions extruding from another, such that one sees four arms, four legs., etc.; (p. 610): congenital twin males being joined at the base of the spine, giving a mirrored image on the page; (p. 609): two more humanoid monsters; (p. 603): congenital twin with breasts and what appears to be a large penis, being actually three mixed-up figures in one; (p. 599): 6 human figures with bizarre deformities, including a man with no head (but his face is present on his chest), another with their feet turned the opposite way of normal; another being a cyclopes; another with the ears of a rabbit, but they flop down to his knees; (p. 595): 3 figures, including a boy with four arms from the elbow and four legs, another with apparent rubber legs and an egg-shell-shaped head, the third is a male child with no legs, his feet present, lacking some fingers (one arm deformed, the other appears normal). Some woodcuts of babies in the womb are shown with numerous positions (p. 481). Plate facing p. 395 showing 4 women with deformities including heads of a wolf, or the skin is fur and one is bearded. Many of the figures rank high in fantasy, such as facing p. 363, showing 4 figures almost beyond description (you have to see them to understand): a man with furry stubbed arms (cacti?) and a tree stump for his legs - another with fish-like body, dragon feet, breasts, ears of a cat and plenty of facial fur - another again more fish-like, wings, older breasts, demon-like face and nasty teeth - another with thick legs, body armor like the armadillo, and quite possibly a face to match as well a skin/wing cloak. (Page 614): 3 figures: a bizarre man with wings for arms, one normal leg, one leg with both scales and roots, a erect penis, "VXY" emblaze don his breast, a head that is a cross between a friendly lion and a goat with cat's ears, two hanging appendages from chest / a Mermaid with wings / a demon with animal feet, long tail, gryphon-like wings, lion-like claws, small armed, and a chameleon-like face. Gaspar Schott, born in Koenigshofen, Germany and died in in Augsburg, was a student in Sicily and later assistant of Kircher at the Roman College, then went back to Germany taking a position of professor of mathematics at Augsburg. The present work reflects the views of both persons, including some bizarre ideas about zoology and human anatomy. Schott "specialized in the fields of physics, mathematics, and natural philosophy. He wrote extensively on the mechanical developments of his time, and produced the first published account on Otto von Guericke's experiments on vacuums. His most famous works include MAGIA UNIVERSALIS, TECHNICA CURIOSA, and PHYSICA CURIOSA - essentially encyclopedias magical, mechanical, and natural history knowledge. Schott was a great compiler, and relied on an extensive library for his own research. Most of Schott's publications are aggregations of the writings and research existing on various topics." - BHL Staff.

Dati, nel gennaio 1666 con il gesuita autriaco J. Grueber, che aveva vissuto a lungo a Pechino; ne risulta un resocoto sempre in bilico tra scrupolo documentario ed evocazione fantasiosa, molto efficace dal punto di vista espressivo”. Così Diz.

He practiced medicine before getting a license, but enrolled later at the University of Glasgow and received his M.D. degree in 1745. After training in obstetrics in London and Paris, he opened a practice in London and began teaching. He invented a "machine", an obstetrical manikin, for instructions. Smellie described the mechanism of labour, designed obstetrical forceps, devised a maneuver to deliver the head of a breech, and published his teachings. He is believed to have painted his own portrait. Use of forceps by W.Smellie The William Smellie Memorial Hospital which provided maternity services in Lanark closed in the early 1990s and was re-located to a unit at the Law Hospital in Carluke. This was also closed recently and maternity services moved to Wishaw General Hospital. It has been alleged that Smellie was involved with either murdering or showing a callous disregard for where his corpses came from (as well as his former pupil William Hunter,and brother John Hunter). The supporting evidence for this theory includes the large number of pregnant corpses Hunter was able to obtain. However, this is widely contested by scholars, and so the debate continues. The tomb in which William Smellie (and later his wife) was buried still stands in the St. Kentigerns section of the state run Lanark graveyard. (Wikipedia).

Playford (1623 - 1686) first published this in 1677, and he composed at least one tune, "Bristol," that was included in his edition of the Psalms. After Playford's death, the second edition was published in 1695 by Henry Playford, his only surviving son. The last edition that I have traced is the 20th, published in 1757. ESTC locates the second edition of 1695 and the fourth edition of 1698 (from which the photocopies are taken), but copies of this edition can be found in the Folger and the Newberry.

      ED912 Edizioni di cultura contemporanea, 1697. Stampata in 9 fascicoli (di cui un numero doppio biforme), la rivista apre lo sguardo sull''arte contemporanea anche internazionale prestando sempre più attenzione alle influenze sociali e politiche dello spirito libertario del tempo, ne è testimone la grafica che progressivamente diventa sempre più avanguardistica. Da ricordare che la copertina in cui una donna dipinge di giallo un poliziotto costò l'imputazione di istigazione contro le forze dell'ordine a Gianni Sassi (art director), Sergio Albergoni (socio editore) e persino Giangiacomo Feltrinelli in qualità di distributore librario (nelle sue librerie pare fosse in vendita anche la bomboletta!). In redazione Germano Celant, Mario Diacono, Daniela Palazzoli, Tommaso Trini; numerosissimi gli interventi di artisti, tra cui Enzo Mari, Baruchello, George Brecht, John Cage, Kounellis, Munari, Simonetti e molti altri.

        KING ARTHUR. An Heroick Poem. In Twelve Books. To which is annexed, an Index, explaining the names of countrys, citys, and rivers, &c.

      London, Awnsham and John Churchil, and Jacob Tonson, 1697.. FIRST EDITION IN 12 BOOKS 1697, (the first edition appeared in ten books in 1695 under the title: Prince Arthur). Folio, approximately 330 x 200 mm, 13 x 8 inches, pages: Title page, i- xvii, [1] errata, 1-343, [8] - index, bound in full contemporary panelled calf, blind decoration to covers, sometime rebacked in lighter calf with raised bands, no lettering or label. Covers slightly worn and lightly pitted, small chip to surface on lower cover, corners slightly worn, inner paper hinges cracked, small pale water stain to title page, light crease to lower corner of title page and next few pages, slight worming to lower margin of title page persisting but decreasing to page 195, small pale damp stain to lower inner margin from page 335 to the end of the index, otherwise contents bright and clean. A very good tight copy. ESTC R235060. Sir Richard Blackmore (1654-1729) was a physician and a poet with a passion for writing epics. He supported the Glorious Revolution, and his first epic Prince Arthur (1695) was a celebration of William III. The poem was based on the form of Virgil's The Aeneid and the subject matter of Geoffrey of Monmouth's Historia Regum Britanniae. It told of the Celtic King Arthur opposing the invading Saxons and taking London, which was a transparent encoding of William III opposing the "Saxon" James II and taking London. William made Blackmore physician-in-ordinary (a position he would hold with Queen Anne as well), gave him a gold medal, and knighted him in 1697. Among Blackmore's admirers were John Locke and Dr Johnson who did him the honour of writing his life for his Lives of the Poets. Blackmore's next epic, King Arthur, has the same hero "yet 'tis another entire poem" (author's Preface), not as some have stated an enlarged reworking of the Prince Arthur. It takes different episodes of his life from Geoffrey of Monmouth, namely the expedition to invade France and the conquest of Paris. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE.

      Battista Tramontino,, Venetia per Gio (Venise), 1697 - [1] 4ff, 216pp, 2ff, 3ff, 232pp. Edition originale de cet ouvrage de toute rareté. Texte (en italien) seul, sans les planches qui n'ont jamais été montées dans cet exemplaire. Le dernier feuillet de texte de la deuxième partie (liste des gravures) est également manquant. Les Viaggi de Coronelli sont une sorte de guide touristique rempli de ses notes de voyages, de nombreux commentaires sur les habitudes locales et de descriptions détaillées des villes visitées : Venise, Castelfranco Veneto, Bassano del Grappa, Padoue, Vicence, Vérone, Trente, Bolzano, Ispruch, Monaco, Augusta (Sicile), Nuremberg, Wurtzbourg, Francfort, Bad Mergentheim, Mayence, Coblence, Boppard, Bonn, Cologne, Düsseldorf, Rheinberg, Nimègue, Emmerich am Rhein, Rees, Tiel, Bomel (Namur), Dortmund, Limbourg, Nuitz, Cleves, Alkmaar, Rotterdam, Delft; Loosduinen, Leiden (Leyde), Rendsburg, Haarlem, Amsterdam, Utrecht, Gouda, Brielle, Angleterre : Londres (la City, Kensington), Windsor, Oxford, Cambridge et Harwich. Vincenzo Maria Coronelli (né le 16 août 1650 à Venise - mort le 9 décembre 1718, dans la même ville) est un moine franciscain conventuel et docteur en théologie italien, à la fois cartographe, cosmographe, fabricant de globes et encyclopédiste. Sa carrière de cartographe débute en 1680, avec la construction d'une paire de globes, l'un terrestre, l'autre céleste, pour le duc de Parme, Ranunce II Farnese. À l'occasion d'une mission diplomatique, César, cardinal d'Estrées, visite la bibliothèque du duc de Parme, y découvre les globes, et décide d'engager Coronelli et de l'héberger à Paris pour qu'il réalise deux globes en l'honneur de Louis XIV. De retour à Venise en 1684, Coronelli fonde l'Accademia Cosmografica degli Argonauti, destinée à diffuser ses publications dans toute l'Europe. Il reçoit l'année suivante le titre de Cosmographe de la République de Venise. Après un nouveau voyage à Paris, de 1686 à 1687, il demeure à Venise jusqu'en 1696, période qu'il met à profit pour publier plusieurs cartes, et la première partie de son Isolario en 1696. Avec deux ambassadeurs vénitiens, il quitte la République de Venise en 1696 pour un voyage de deux ans, qui l'emmène en Germanie, en Hollande, puis en Angleterre et, notamment, à Oxford où il est salué avec honneurs à l'Université. Il publie ses Viaggi l'année suivante. Livres Un coin émoussé, des traces de frottements, notamment sur les 3 autres coins, les mors et la coiffe inférieure, une ancienne étiquette en pied du dos, 2 tampons découpés sur la page de titre et la suivante, page de garde partiellement détachée mais non manquante, sinon bel et rare exemplaire.

        Alle de werken van P. Ovidius Naso vertaalt door Abraham Valentijn. Met privilegie van de Edele Groot Mogende Heeren Staten van Holland en West-Vriesland. Amsterdam, Pieter Mortier, 1697.

      - Contemporary parchment binding. 150 x 90 mm, 12º: (dl 1:) pi2 *6 (-*4) A-K#12 L#8, [14] 256 pp.; (dl 2:) pi#2 A-Q#12, [4] 382 pp.; (dl 3:) pi#2 A-Q#12, [4] 338 [44] pp. Three identical engraved title pages with a circular portrait engraving. Part II has 15 etchings by C[oenraad] Decker. Little foxing, good copy. Prose translation (prozavertaling) of the complete works of Ovid (and more, because some poems are now known not to be Ovid’s). The works are arranged in the usual chronological order: first the heroines letters (Heldinnenbrieven) and erotic poetry (erotische poezie), then the metamorphoses, illustrated with 15 engravings by C Decker and in part III the incomplete calendar (only six of the 12 months) and mourning songs and letters from the Black Sea. These last two titles were written by Ovid while he was in exile. The translator, Abraham Valentijn (1640 – after 1697) was preceptor and rector at the Latin School in Dordrecht and from 1681 also the librarian for the Dordrecht city library. In his dedication to Mayor Adriaan van Blyenborch, he blames previous Ovid translators that they had not studied Greek historians and poets enough, thus "op tallijke blinde klippen gestooten sijn" (which means that they had a lot of difficulties translating). The 15 prints by Decker for the first edition of Valentijn’s translation, which appeared at Daniel Gaasbeeck at Leiden, are only a small part of the originally intended prints. When you read the message to the binder in the back, you’ll see that there was another set of prints (124 pieces!) that could have been bound with the Metamorphoses. The translation by Valentijn was followed by a third edition, this time with notes by the Amsterdam based physician and literary Ludolf Smids. ZKL0060

        Dictionnaire Historique et Critique. 2 Teile in 4 Bänden.

      Reinier Leers, Rotterdam 1697 - Folio. Mit 4 wiederholten gestochenen Titelvignetten. 2 Bl., 12, 712 S. (Teil 1 / A - B); 1 Bl., S. 713 - 1359, (1) S. (Teil 1 / C- G); 1 Bl., 710 S. (Teil 2 / H - O); 1 Bl., S. 711 - 1331, (1) S., 28 Bl. (Teil 2 / P - Z). Lederbände der Zeit mit geprägter Rücken- und Deckelvergoldung, Rückenschildchen und Innenkantenfileten. "Wohl das amüsanteste und geistreichste Wörterbuch, das jemals geschrieben wurde"(E. Friedell), hier in der ersten Auflage. - Zischka 7 (gibt als 1. Ausgabe ' Rotterdam, 1695 - 1697' an); Graesse I, 314; vgl. Brunet I, 711 (spätere Ausgaben). - Das vorliegende Werk entstand als Erwiderung zu "Le Grand Dictionnaire Historique" des Abbé Louis Moréri (1643 - 1680), der die von ihm behandelten Gegenstände aus kirchlicher Sicht beurteilt. 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. Es handelt sich nicht um ein Wörterbuch im heutigen Sinne, sondern um ein Namenslexikon, "das in alphabetischer Anordnung Biographien und die Darstellung von Werken bedeutender Persönlichkeiten aneinanderreiht." (KLL III 2670). Formal gliedern sich die einzelnen Beiträge in einen meist kurzen Textteil und einen mitunter ausufernden Anmerkungsapparat, in dem die eigentliche geistige Auseinandersetzung mit dem jeweiligen Stichwort stattfindet. Hier ist der Platz für Bayles "gewagteste Anspielungen und Unterstellungen" (Carter-Muir 155), die dem Werk seinen skurrilen Charakter verleihen. - Bayle, als Sohn eines protestantischen Pastors geboren, wechselte 1669 zum Katholizismus und rekonvertierte 1670 zum Calvinismus. Er studierte Theologie und cartesianische Philosophie. Später ging er freiwillig ins Exil nach Rotterdam, wo er 1681 eine Professur übernahm und das vorliegende Werk verfaßte. - Außengelenke stellenweise gebrochen; Kapitale schadhaft und teils fehlend; stärker beschabt und bestoßen. Vordere Spiegel jeweils mit handschriftlicher Bibliothekssignatur; fliegendes Blatt von Band 1 mit handschriftlicher Widmung; fliegendes Blatt und Titel von Band 3 und Band 4 jeweils mit handschriftlichem Besitzvermerk; Titelblätter jeweils mit 2 Stempeln (unleserlich); gebräunt und vereinzelt wasser- und stockfleckig.

        The Praise of York-shire Ale, Wherein is enumerated several sorts of Drink, with a Discription [sic] of the Humors of most sorts of Drunckards. To Which is added, a York-shire Dialogue in its pure natural dialect, as is now commonly spoken in the North parts of York-shire. With the Addition of some Observations, of the Dialect and Pronuntiation of Words in the East Ryding of York-shire. Together with a Collection of significant and usefull proverbs. By G.M. Gent.

      York J. White for Francis Hildyard at the Signe of the Bible in Stone-Gate 1697 - Octavo (16 x 10.8 cm). Title, leaf 'To the Reader', 124 pp.; title and last page a bit darkened, marginal paper repairs to several corners including title-page without loss of letters, one leaf with scuff a bit obscuring text, second leaf slightly cropped at bottom not affecting text. Early nineteenth century polished calf gilt, gilt fillets to covers, spine gilt with raised bands, red and tan morocco labels lettered in gilt, ; sometime rebacked preserving spine, a very good example. Reader, here's sportive mirth and harmless Droll, Come buy and Read, and laugh thy Belly full. When thou hast done, if thou condemn me for 't, Then I have made my self, and not thee sport; That man is too morose, and much to blame, That doth condemn all mirth to be profane: All Ages have of lawful mirth allow'd; If too much time in it were not bestow'd. Here thou hast mirth, with small expence of time, I've taken paines, the pleasure will be thine. With "a pioneering dialect glossary, preceded in print only by John Ray's" (ODNB). This glossary is the fourth part of the publication, taking more than 30 pages (pp. 89-124): "For'th lang Lane, is when a thing is borrowed with an intention never to be pay'd again". The first part (pp. 1-32) is the Praise itself, an imaginative poem relating Bacchus' adventures in Yorkshire in an interesting mix of English, dialect and Latin. It was first published in 1685. It is followed (pp. 33-78) by A York-Shire Dialogue in its pure Natural Dialect [.] in the North parts of York shire, first published in 1683. Reader here's Folly, come and Laugh thy fill, He neer did good, that never did no ill. The third part (pp. 79-81) is of great interest for the study of pronunciation some 300 years ago, as it contains Some Observations concerning the Dialect and various Pronunciation of words in the East-Riding of Yorkshire. The Collection of Significant and usefull Proverbs, some of which are apropriated to York-shire" (pp. 83-88) teaches us that "Best is best Cheap", or that "Better heve a Mouse in the Pot than neay Flesh". This is the third edition of the Dialogue, the second of the Praise - a much enlarged edition "with additional dialect material" (ODNB). Scarce: we could trace only three copies of this edition at auction in the last 40 years, and none of the other editions of the Praise and the Dialogue. ESTC R19511. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
