        Bath memoirs: Or, observations in three and forty years practice, at the Bath, what cures have been there wrought (both by bathing and drinking the waters) by God's blessing

      Bristol: H. Hammond, 1697. 8vo (17.8 cm, 7"). [32], 399, [3] pp. (map lacking). First edition: a wealth of case studies of men, women, and children afflicted by such ailments as Wand'ring Scorbutical Gout, Arthritick Pains, Spina Ventosa, Dead-Palsie, etc., along with => historical information about both the city of Bath and water cures in general. Dr. Pierce (b. ca. 1622, d. 1710) was one of the most prominent Bath physicians of the day; he specialized in supervising mineral water cures, both by drinking and by bathing. Both parts of his Memoirs (the second has a separate title-page but contiguous pagination) are present here, including => a chapter dedicated specifically to women's gynecological ailments including "green sickness" and "virgin distemper"; the final errata leaf is also present. In describing Pierce's accomplishments, specifically the present work, the DNB calls him "probably the first English writer to note the now well-known occurrence of acute rheumatism as a sequel to scarlet fever; and his account of Major Arnot's case [pp. 44–46 here], in which muscular feebleness of the arm followed the constant carrying of a heavy falcon on one fist, is the first suggestion of the condition later described as ‘repetitive strain syndrome.' He carried out post-mortem examinations on some patients, one of which was on the body of Sir Robert Craven, who had a mediastinal tumour; and another on a man with osteomyelitis of the hip. => These original observations entitle him to a high place among English physicians. ESTC R217310; Wing (rev.) P2163. Not in Garrison & Morton. On Pierce, see: Oxford Dictionary of National Biography online. Period-style mottled calf framed and panelled in gilt rolls with gilt-stamped corner fleurons and gilt-stamped central motif, spine with gilt-stamped leather title-label, gilt-ruled raised bands, and gilt-stamped compartment decorations. Lacking the folding map of the city. Preliminary blank with early inked annotation, final (blank) page with "Bath" inked in an early hand. Pages slightly age-toned, otherwise clean.

        A Lady's Religion In a Letter To the honourable My Lady Howard. By a Divine in the Church of England. With a Prefatory Epistle to the same Lady, By a Lay-Gentleman.

      London: Printed for Tho: Warren for Richard Baldwin. 1697 - FIRST EDITION. Small 12mo, 128 x 69 mms., pp. [xxiv], 71 [72 blank], contemporary calf, panelled in gilt, spine gilt in compartments; lower read joint slightly cracked, upper rear joint splitting. With several ownership inscriptions on the front end-papers: "Mary Bowsher/ Jany ye. 29th/ 1789 the gift of miss [?Flagraal]. Emison Bowsher/ the gift of his aunt/ Oct. 1838" on the recto of the front free end-paper, and "Mary Powell/ the gift of her/ Mother/ March 14 1869" on the front paste-down end-paper; and "Mary Bowsher" on the recto of the rear free end-paper, with various scribblings in pencil on the rear end-papers. The "Lay-Gentleman" signs himself "Adeisidæmon," which was the title of a book published in 1709, Adeisidæmon, sive Titus Livius a superstitione vindicatus . Autore J. Tolando. Annexæ sunt ejusdem Origines Judaicæ. It is just possible that Toland is the "Lay-Gentleman" and re-used "Adeisdaemon" twelve years later. Given Toland's literary and religious propensities, he could even have authored the work himself and then have written the preface; or that he knew this work and borrowed the pseudonym` of the author of the preface. In any case, the "Lay-Gentleman" has an agenda that Toland probably would have had some sympathy for, stating that the author "has shewn Religion to be plain, short, and intelligible. And that the knowledge of it depends not upon the helps of Spurious Learning, he has with a deal of genuine Learning. What ought to recommend him most, is, that although he be a Divine, yet he pretends not to make any thing pass upon you by vertue of the bare Authority of his Profession." ESTC R212982 locates copies at BL (2), Bodleian, Cambridge, Lambeth Palace; and Minnesota. The work was reprinted in 1704, 1748 (Foulis Press), 1748 (London: Owen), 1751, and 1753. All copies except the 1748 Owen imprint, which adds other material, are uncommon. For Adeisidæmon, see Robert Sullivan: John Toland and the Deist Controversy (1982) [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        MILANO SEMPRE GRANDE NEL PROCURARE LA PROMOZIONE DE? SUOI FIGLI ALLA DIGNITA? DI PADRE E DI PASTORE. Nell?ergere pomposo apparato a riceverli, nel mantenere un filiale ossequio dopo ricevuti. Circonstanze descritte nell?elezione, e nel solenne ingresso fatto in Milano dall?Emin.ssimo signor Cardinale Federico Caccia, suo Arcivescovo, il giorno 11. di Decembre 1696.

      per Marc?Antonio Pandolfo Malatesta (1697). In-8 gr. (mm. 250x175), cartonato muto coevo, pp. 116,(20), ornato da grandi capilett. e finali silografati, con 4 belle tavv. f.t., inc. in rame da Scotti (rifilate), che raffigurano i due archi trionfali. Dedica ?agl?Ill.ssimi signori Vicario, e Sessanta Decurioni della detta città?. Relazione del solenne ingresso a Milano del nuovo arcivescovo, il cardinale Federico Caccia. Le autorità cittadine predisposero due grandi archi, nonostante la difficile situazione economica dello Stato milanese, oppresso dal fiscalismo spagnolo. I due archi, uno presso la Basilica di S. Eustorgio e l?altro nella contrada dei Mercanti d?oro (subito prima dell?ingresso nella piazza del Duomo), furono opera dell?arch. Giovan Battista Quadrio. Tutto l?apparato allegorico degli archi, con le statue, le descrizioni e i dipinti, doveva rappresentare al nuovo arcivescovo la storia e la qualità della Chiesa milanese. I dipinti furono opera di due pittori: Federico Bianchi e Filippo Abbiati, entrambi molto importanti nella storia della pittura milanese. Autore della presente relazione fu un dotto milanese, Baldassarre Paravicini, segretario dei Decurioni della città. Dopo un?ampia relazione sulla nomina di Federico Caccia a vescovo di Milano, si ricorda la sosta del cardinale, il 20 novembre 1696, nella città di Lodi poco prima del suo ingresso in Milano. A Lodi fu accolto da grandi feste, mentre a Milano fervevano i preparativi per l?accoglienza. Il cardinale Caccia entrò in incognito a Milano il giorno 10 dicembre e prese dimora nell?arcivescovado, essendo fissato per il giorno successivo l?ingresso solenne. L?11 dicembre il cardinale raggiunse in carrozza la chiesa di S. Eustorgio, dove vestì gli abiti pontificali e da dove prese inizio la lunghissima e solenne processione che lo accompagnò fino in Duomo. Mirabile fu l?apparato esterno e interno del Duomo, dove, tra una colonna e l?altra e in mezzo a preziosi drappeggi, erano stati esposti i grandi quadri con le storie di S. Carlo Borromeo. Importante e rara opera in "edizione originale". Cfr. Predari, p. 169: ?La prefazione ha molto pregio per le erudite citazioni storiche di tutti i passi d?autori che scrissero con lode di Milano? - Arrigoni ?Milano nelle vecchie stampe?,II,886, con descriz. e illustrazione di un arco trionfale. Esemplare su carta forte, molto ben conservato. ??Il milanese Federico Caccia (1635-1699) non ebbe che due anni di tempo per esercitare effettivamente la sua funzione pastorale. Di lui si ricordano: il rinnovo di alcune disposizioni disciplinari relative ai conventi femmminili (1694 e 1697); la benedizione del ?colosso? di Arona; l?insediamento in cattedrale della statua d?argento dedicata a s. Ambrogio.. Nel 1697 ebbe l?incarico della reggenza della città durante l?assenza del governatore di Milano Don Filippo Guzman.. Il periodo del suo arcivescovato sembra distinguersi soprattutto per l?impulso da lui dato alla edilizia religiosa e per l?esercizio della carità verso i poveri, aperta o discreta, che culminò nelle disposizioni testamentarie con cui lasciò i poveri, eredi dell?intero suo patrimonio??. Così Diz. Biograf. Italiani,XV, p. 754.

        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. (First edition appeared in ten books in 1695 under title: Prince Arthur). Folio, 330 x 200 mm, 13 x 8 inches, pages (2) (lacks blank before title), xvii, (1) errata, 343, (8) index, bound in full antique panelled calf, blind decoration to covers, rebacked 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. 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.

        Recentissima Novi Orbis, Sive Americae Septentrionalis et Meridionalis Tabula

      Amsterdam: circa 1697. Copper-engraved map. Small inset of New Zealand within the cartouche. 20 1/2 x 25 1/2 inches. Rare issue of Allard's map of North and South America, the first to show important corrections to the mapping of the Great Lakes and the Mississippi River Valley. "The map of America by Allard is derived from that of Frederick de Wit, c. 1675" (Burden). Significantly, however, Allard corrects the mapping of the Great Lakes and Mississippi Valley. "The former are entirely re-engraved as are the nearby waterways off the St. Lawrence River including Lake Champlain, which is moved south-west. Lake Superior is now enclosed to the west as is Lac des Puans, which is renamed Lac Illinois, placing the previous toponym correctly in Green Bay. To the west an entirely new and more recent depiction of the Mississippi valley is inserted. This is derived from that of Louis Hennepin ... published in 1697" (Burden). This is Burden's second state, with a ruled border surrounding the New Zealand inset but without the textual descriptions of climates between the neat line and gradients. It is the first state to show the important corrections noted above. Beyond the cartographic importance, the cartouche is especially attractive, with an allegorical figure of America seated within a sugar cane field inhabited by exotic animals and scenes relating to mankind's eternal search for gold.

        Satires of Decimus Junius Juvenalis. Translated into English Verse by Mr. Dryden, and several other Eminent Hands. Together with the Satires of Aulus Persius Flaccus. Made English by Mr. Dryden. To Which Is Prefixid a Discourse Concerning the Original and Progress of Satire... by Mr. Dryden

      London: Jacob Tonson, 1697. Early issue. Adorned with sculptures, being sixteen finely engraved copper plates by Hollar, including the frontispiece, to illustrate each of the Satires and one additional engraved bust of Persius. Also with engraved half-titles to each of the Satires. 8vo, contemporary full speckled calf, sometime lont ago rebacked to period style with the spine featuring gilt ruled raised bands, one compartment with a dark green morocco label lettered and ruled in gilt, endleaves renewed. xo, 501, [3] pp. A well preserved copy. Some minor toning or foxing, more so to the title and frontispiece, binding with some normal age evidence. AN IMPORTANT TRANSLATION OF ONE OF THE GREAT CLASSICAL TEXTS. Jacob Tonson published The Satires of Decimus Junius Juvenalis and Aulus Persius Flaccus originally in 1693. Tonson assembled this complete translation of Juvenal's Satires by “various hands”, but numbers 1, 3, 6, 10, and 16 were all done by Dryden himself. Number 7 was done by his son Charles, and 14 by his son John. The complete translation of Persius is by Dryden alone, and Dryden also wrote the substantial preface, the “Discourse concerning the original and progress of satire”, in which he explains the history of the genre and gives a critique of its principal Latin practitioners. He also provides reflections on its modern use. While the sixteen Satires are translations rather than imitations, and generally preserved the original Roman allusions, there are a number of turns of phrase which reflect satirically upon William III. Doubtless both the tragic pessimism of Junius' tenth satire, and Persius's Stoicism in the face of Neronian terror, had a contemporary resonance for Dryden. No reader of Junius’ third satire could avoid hearing the translator's voice within its lines. The engraved plates are much in the same style as the somewhat more famous plates in Dryden’s ‘Virgil’, which was first published the same year as this edition.

        WORKS OF VIRGIL CONTAINING HIS PASTORALS, GEORGICS AND AENEIS, Translated into English verse by Mr. Dryden

      London: Jacob Tonson, 1697. First Edition. With a finely engraved titlepage and sculptural frontispiece and 101 additional and very beautiful full page copper engraved plates. Folio in fours, (334 x 220mm.), contemporary calf, the spine with raised bands and lettering label gilt, skillfully rebacked using original materials at some point in time. 690 pp. A decent and well preserved copy, solid and sound with the paper occasionally toned or mellowed by time, occasional spotting as might be typical. Plate and engravings in good order though with these particular attributes. An exquisitely printed work. The quality of the engraving work is absolutely superb and the setting of the type of the very highest quality. Having this book in one’s hands makes one reflect upon how wonderful a folio edition of Shakespeare might have been had Tonson ever undertaken the task. Dryden’s translation, first published one year previous to this edition, one much acclaim and in fact would remain the standard for generations.

Guglielmini's (1655-1710), approach to hydraulics was through extensive field observation, and Gamba praises the work not only for its classical hydraulics, but for the clarity of its verbal and mathematical expression. The book discusses the nature of rivers and their parts, the motion of water, estuaries and confluents, riverbanks, and the kind of materials carried by rivers. --- Gamba 1641: "Edizione originale e rara"; Libreria Vinciana 1659; Riccardi I1, 643, 91: "Meno pregiata, ma più rara"; Roberts/Tr. 152f.; Wellcome III, 177. - "E questa l'opera che più d'ogni altra rese immortale il nome dell'a(utore). La sua notorietà ci dispensa dal darne minuto ragguaglio. Avvertiremo solo che la dottrina degl'alvei fu portata dall'a(utore). a(utore) tale profezione, che oggi, dopo un secolo emezzo di progressi, rimane tuttavia il testo degli idraulici.".

        The General History of England, both Ecclesiastical and Civil; From the Earliest Accounts of Time, to the Reign of His Present Majesty, King William III. Taken from the most Ancient Records, Manuscripts, and Printed Historians....Volumes I & II

      LONDON : W Rogers, F Harris, R Knaplock, A Bell, and T Cockerill, 1697 An exceptionally rare original copy of James Tyrrell's historical work. Tyrrell (1642-1718) was an author and Whig philosopher, and a close friend of John Locke. He intended his history to stretch to William III. In reality, he spent so much time on the detail of each reign that he only succeeded in reaching Richard II by the end of Volume III - his final volume. This set is Volumes I and II. Volume I covers 'the earliest accounts of time' up to the Battle of Hastings. Volume II covers William I to Henry III. In contemporary full leather binding with a blind stamped decorative border to the boards, raised bands and gilt tooling to the spine, red title labels and gilt decoration to board edges. Vol I has a frontispiece, title page, Dedication to Thomas, Earl of Pembroke (i-iv), preface to the reader (v-xxviii), general introduction (xxix-cxxviii), table to the preface and introduction (cxxix-cxxxvi) and text in 6 books. The page numbering is a little odd in that Books I-V are paginated 1-355 and Book VI is paginated separately - 1-116.It includes 5 fold out charts covering Tables of Succession. There is also an alphabetical table/index at the rear (i-xci). Volume II has title page dated 1700, dedication to William III (i-iv), Preface to the Reader (v-xxix), Introduction (xxx-cxxxv), table to the preface and introduction (6pp), catalogue of authors (3pp), text in 8 books (pp1-1119), advertisement to the reader (p1120), Appendix (1-36) and Index (57 pp), and finally errata, corrigenda and delenda and a further addenda (2pp). Tyrrell pays particular attention to the legal framework in John and Henry III's reigns. The bindings are in fair to good condition being complete with unscuffed boards and light bumping to corners. There is some wear to spine joints - it looks like the front joint of Vol I was repaired at some time. There is some evidence of early splitting at the joints but the books are currently sound. Internally both volumes have the bookplate of John Rutherford of Edgerston, which is near Jedburgh, and a separate bookplate of Peter Scupham on the front pastedown. The frontispiece to Vol I has a crease. Both volumes have an ink signature of John Edgerston across the title page. The contents are in very good condition.

        The History of Wales

      London: M Clark for the Author, 1697 Comprehending the lives and succession of the Princes of Wales, from Cadwalader the last King, to Llewelyn tha last Prince, of British Blood. With a short account of the affairs of Wales, under the Kings of England. Written originally in British, by Caradoc of Lhancarvan; and formerly published in English by Dr. Powel. In contemporary rustic speckled calf, covers with blind double fillet border and vertical decorative drawer handle roll at joints, raised bands flanked with blind double rules, backstrip neatly patched (at the time of binding?) at foot of front joint and in upper two panels. Front pastedown with early ink inscription of Wharton. (Lowndes III, 1934; Graesse V, 429 (citing later edition); Wing C-488. ESTC R12980 ) [40], (xxiii), [1], 398 pp, [18]. Joints and head of spine a little flaked, boards slightly soiled and marked, corners a bit rubbed, front flyleaf discolored, leaves with isolated browning, but AN EXCELLENT COPY, the contemporary binding solid, scarcely worn, and generally pleasing, and the text very fresh, clean, and wide-margined. Written as a continuation of the Welsh part of Geoffrey of Monmouth’s British History, this work takes the account down to the time of the author, Caradog of Llancarvan, (d. 1147?), one of several literary figures (including Monmouth) around Robert, Earl of Gloucester, bastard son of Henry I. It was probably written in Latin, and no longer exists in an original form, but several Welsh translations survive (in Welsh, it is known as Brut y Tywysogion, or Chronicle of the Princes). The work had been translated into English in 1559 by the antiquarian, musician, and physician Humphrey Llwyd (1527-68), but that translation was unpublished at his death. A copy of the work came to Sir Henry Sidney, lord president of Wales, who in 1583 selected David Powel to prepare the manuscript for publication. Powel (1552?-98) was already respected as an authority on Welsh history, and his corrections and additions, based on his own research, practically comprised a new book when it was published in 1584 as the Historie of Cambria. To some extent all subsequent historians of Wales have drawn from it.

        In ejusdem Principio Philologico promissa sive Anthropoglottogonia [Greek], Hvmanae lingvae genesis. Partis Primae Tomus Primus [all published]

      Venice:: Francesco Tramontini for the author,, 1697. 4to. 4to in 8s (215 x 152 mm). [16], 184, [2] pp. Title in red and black, 8 etched illustrations including title vignette, 5 by Gio. Palazzi, one etched and several woodcut tailpieces. A few upper corners creased in quires E & F, else fine. Early 19th-century English half calf and marbled boards (rubbed, upper joint split). Provenance: Earls of Macclesfield (bookplate, blindstamps). ***& & ONLY EDITION of an eccentric and little-known treatise of comparative etymology, embellished with etched vignette illustrations. Ericus attempted in this work to prove that all languages trace their origins to Greek. Professor of philology and geography at Padua, Ericus (or Erich) was a native of Eisenach in Thuringia, as noted in his other important work on language (see below). Little is known of his life, and he is mentioned in none of the relevant bibliographies or biographical dictionaries. Only Leibniz paid him notice, having met him in Venice in 1697 and been impressed by his linguistic researches; he mentions him several times in his letters, and discusses the present work at length in the Epistolica de historia etymologica dissertatio of 1717. While rejecting most of Ericus' conclusions, Leibniz praised the thoroughness of his efforts to penetrate the origins of languages, which few etymologists had attempted.& & Even for his time, Ericus’ erudition is undeniable; in the present work he compares the syntax, morphology, phonology, semantics and metrical systems of Latin, Greek, Hebrew, English, Dutch, French, Italian, Spanish, German, Flemish, and Norwegian. Hebrew, of which the printer apparently disposed of no font, is spelled out in small roman capitals. The extraordinary challenges of printing the work were met with bravura by the Tramontini press, as is evident from the brevity of the errata list at end, filling a mere half-page.& & The "Anthropoglottogonia" represented a step forward in time and in sophistication of linguistic analysis in relation to Ericus' previous work (referred to in the title), Renatum è mysterio principium philologicum (Padua 1686), a treatise on the origins of alphabetical letters and sounds in which, while tracing phonemes and vowels to Adam’s naming of the animals in Eden, he set forth a basic but credible phonetic theory, distinguishing sounds made by different actions of the mouth.& & Ericus evokes the Creation theme again at the beginning of this work; the headpiece vignette opening the text (by J. de Lespier after A. Erich) shows the animals of creation flocking, flying and crawling to surround Apollo with his lyre. The remaining illustrations form a varied emblematic series. The title etching shows the Tower of Babel (a woodcut of the same subject illustrated his previous work), with caption Aedificemus; while the dedication is headed by a panorama of a besieging army with a Greek caption meaning "the infantry [Greek ta???] drives out disorder," a pun on the name of the dedicatee, Ferdinand von Thurn und Taxis. Other subjects include: beehives and a spider, illustrating the proverb "Mela apibus arancis venena" (what is honey for bees is poison for spiders); a formal garden with strolling couples and at center two men greeting each other with an embrace, illustrating two lines from plays by Plautus on the dual theme of the blending of personal identity in friendship and the confusion of exchanged identities (ego tu sum, tu es ego…); a hellish mining scene (replaced by a cancel in the Getty copy), illustrating Virgil's description of Vulcan's furnace from the Aeneid, Book 8; and a street scene with two horses, illustrating an Horatian allusion from Book 2 of the Epistles (concerning pulling hairs from horses' tails). & & OCLC & NUC locate 4 copies (NYPL, Getty, Trinity Coll. & U. Penn); Harvard also holds a copy. BL 17th-century Italian books I:319. On Leibniz's engagement with the work, cf.

        ANECDOTA QUAE EX AMBROSIANAE BIBLIOTHECAE CODICIBUS Nunc primùm eruit, notis, ac disquisitionibus auget L. A. Muratorius, in eadem Bibliotheca Ambrosiani Collegij Doctor. Quatuo S. Tomus Prior, Secundus, Tertius.

      G.P. Malatesta e J. Manfrè, 1697 - 1713., Milano e Padova, - Tre volumi in 4°, legatura coeva in piena pelle, titoli al dorso a cinque nervi, piatti incorniciati da triplo filetto, con angoli, bordi esterni e scomparti del dorso impressi a piccoli ferri a motivi ornamentali decorati in oro, sguardie marmorate, bianche, occhielli, frontespizi, dedicatoria, introduzione, indici, 8 cc., 259 pp.; 3 cc., 371 pp.; 4 cc., 341 pp., bianche finali. L'immensa, magnifica opera prima, del grande scrittore settecentesco. Entrato nel 1695 alla Biblioteca Ambrosiana, Muratori cominciò subito a raccogliere quantitàdi documenti inediti, pubblicando questo suo primo lavoro, originale in due volumi stampati appunto a Milano, presso Malatesta. Il primo volume stampato nel 1697 sottointitolato "Quatuor S. PAULINI Episcopi Nolani Poemata complectens" raccoglie notizie biografiche e componimenti del Santo oratore e poeta Paolino, il quale conobbe Sant'Ambrogio ed ebbe come maestro il poeta Ausonio, accompagnate da glosse e dissertazioni, con in fine un appendice sull'antica giurisdizione milanese sull'episcopato ticinese. Il secondo volume stampato nel 1698 sottointitolato "Praeter veterum monimenta Commentarium continens DE CORONA FERREA, qua Romanorum Imperatores in Insubribus coronari Solent" raccoglie innumerevoli cronache, disquisizioni, orazioni e commentari su particolari e misteriosi argomenti. Nel 1700 Muratori riceve l'incarico d'archivista e bibliotecario, da Rinaldo d'Este, duca di Modena, in un europa coinvolta nella guerra di successione spagnola, nel cui contesto divampano le controversie nei ducati di Ferrara, di Parma, per il dominio, ad esempio del ricco territorio di Comacchio, l'Autore è indotto ancor più allo studio ed alla ricerca delle fonti storiche più rilevanti, e la sua opera viene arricchita di altri due volumi, stampati a Padova presso Manfrè, di cui noi disponiamo del primo (terzo dell'opera), edito nel 1713, che raccoglie sei opuscoli inediti: Le Orazioni di Tertulliano con prefazione, note e commento del Panciroli e del Muratori; il poema "De gestis in Civitate Mediolani." di Stephanardi di Vicomercato; un affascinante libello di Anonimo del IX sec. "De Computo, sive De Kalendario"; Epistole e Sermoni del vescovo Ildeberto Cenomanense, figura di rilievo, teologo e poeta del X secolo; il libello "De Corpore et Sanguine Christi" di Gezone abate Derthonense; ed in ultimo Enea Silvio Piccolomini (Pio II Papa) nell'orazione "De Compactatis Bohemorum". Pregevole insieme di tre rari volumi, ciascuno completo in se stesso, provenienti dall'Università di Chicago (ex-libris e timbro di dismissione), in bella veste legatoriale (minimi restauri conservativi alle cerniere). Assolutamente notevole e di scarsissima reperibilità.

Written as a continuation of the Welsh part of Geoffrey of Monmouth’s British History, this work takes the account down to the time of the author, Caradog of Llancarvan, (d. 1147?), one of several literary figures (including Monmouth) around Robert, Earl of Gloucester, bastard son of Henry I. It was probably written in Latin, and no longer exists in an original form, but several Welsh translations survive (in Welsh, it is known as Brut y Tywysogion, or Chronicle of the Princes). The work had been translated into English in 1559 by the antiquarian, musician, and physician Humphrey Llwyd (1527-68), but that translation was unpublished at his death. A copy of the work came to Sir Henry Sidney, lord president of Wales, who in 1583 selected David Powel to prepare the manuscript for publication. Powel (1552?-98) was already respected as an authority on Welsh history, and his corrections and additions, based on his own research, practically comprised a new book when it was published in 1584 as the Historie of Cambria. To some extent all subsequent historians of Wales have drawn from it.

        Des principes de l'architecture, de la sculptur, de la peinture, et des autres arts qui en dependent. avec un dictionnaire des termes propres a' chacun de ces arts. seconde edition. a paris, coignard, 1697.

      Cm. 24, pp. (24) 542. Bell'antiporta allegorica, frontespizio in rosso e nero con vignetta centrale, alcune belle testate e 65 tavole a piena pagina, il tutto inciso in rame. Solida e perfetta legatura coeva in piena pergamena, dorso lisci con titoli in oro su tassello in marocchino rosso. Un timbretto di prestigiosa libreria privata al frontespizio. Esemplare genuino ed in ottimo stato di conservazione. Terza edizione (la prima risale al 1676) di questa celebre opera d'architettura, la stessa citata da Cicognara (502) che così si esprime: ""...con 65 tavole di bellissimo intaglio e le vignette incise da Le Clerc. In tutte le opere di questo autore avvi una giudiziosa scelta di cognizioni, e molto gusto anche nella maniera di esporle"". La trattazione è suddivisa in tre parti principali: architettura, scultura e pittura ed infine un vocabolario di termini tecnici. Le tavole, delineate con precisione, sono dedicate prevalentemente agli strumenti di lavoro e si rivelano di grande importanza per la conoscenza delle tecniche costruttive del tempo. André Felibien (1619-1695) compose quest'opera al suo ritorno da Roma, dove passò vari anni a studiare gli elementi della classicità e dove venne a contatto con gli uomini più eminenti in campo artistico e letterario. Di lui si ricorda anche l'opera: Entretiens sur les vies et sur les ouvrages des plus excellents peintres anciens et modernes.

Mäst effter egen förfarenhet/ jemte wäl-öfwade personers skriffter/ alla läkare och feldscherer; men särdeles barnmoderskor och huusmödrar till gagn och nytta/ med tienliga figurer författat; och med kongl. maij:tz nådigste privilegio, samt wederbörandes approbation på egen bekostning utgifwin. Sthlm, N. Goldenaus tryckerij, 1697. 8:o. Extra grav. titelblad,(20),20,(4),1-328,(20,2 blanka) s. & 11 grav. plr. + PORTAL, PAUL. Then swenska wälöfwade jorde-gummans andra deel. Bestående uti ottatijo märckwärdige förlosningar, förrättade/ och på fransöska beskrefne. Men nu/ förtheras förträflighet/ på swenska öfwersatte och med några tienliga påminnelser, uthgifne af Johan von Hoorn. Sthlm, H. C. Merckell, 1723. 8:o. (32),233,(6) s. Två fina pergamentbd med infärgade titelfält (Johanna Röjgård). Stänkta snitt. Bra inlagor med enstaka lager- och småfläckar.

Några lättare solkfläckar på s. 208-09 i del I och ett brännhål med liten textförlust på s. 321-22 samt en gultonad fuktfläck i nedre hörnet på s. 323-26. Små revor i yttermarginalen på s. 91 i del II. Med Trolleholmsbibliotekets stpl på första delens extra grav. titelblad.. Collijn Sveriges bibliografi 1600-talet 398-99. Bibliotheca Walleriana 4882 och 7577. Med två dikter av Sofia Elisabeth Brenner i första delen och en av Johan Lindestolpe i den andra. Ett porträtt föreställande von Hoorn finns i en del exemplar men saknas här. Den ovanliga så kallade andra delen är en översättning i utdrag ur Portals "La pratique des accouchemens", med kommentarer av von Hoorn. Barnmorskorna, eller jordegummorna, var i Stockholm vid slutet av 1600-talet ungefär 80 till antalet. De saknade oftast utbildning i förlossningskonsten och bidrog antagligen till en del av tidens höga barnadödlighet. Hoorn, som inriktat sig på förlossningskonsten under sina studieår i Paris, bl.a. under just Portal, tog på sig uppgiften att utbilda jordegummorna och att inrätta en effektiv kontroll över barnmorskeyrket. Först 1711 kungjordes rådets reglemente, efter utkast av Hoorn, för Stockholms barnmorskor, vilket innebar att de skulle gå en tvåårig lärlingstid hos en annan barnmorska och examineras av Collegium medicum efter undervisning av utsedd lärare. 1724 började reglementet att gälla i hela landet. Elias och Sophia Elisabeth Brenner tillhörde uppenbarligen Hoorns privata umgängeskrets, då hon stod som fadder till hans andra barn
