        Mr. Locke's Reply To the Right Reverend the Lord Bishop of Worcester's Answer to his Letter.

      Printed by H. Clark for A. and J. Churchill, [London] 1697 - Half title + TP + 1-174 + half title + 1-7 + [8] = Errata + 1 blank leaf, small Octavo. First Edition. Yolton 249.Between 1696 and 1699 Locke was involved in one of the most memorable controversies in the history of philosophy. Bishop Stillingfleet, a learned divine (but no great philosopher) had attacked Locke in his Discourse in Vindication of the Doctrine of the Trinity of 1696. Stillingfleet had read a pamphlet by the Irish pantheist Toland, who had argued that there was nothing mysterious in Christianity, which he claimed to base on Locke's Essay. Stillingfleet accused Locke's philosophy of materialism. Locke answered this attack promptly with A Letter to the Right Reverend. published in 1697. Stillingfleet countered, Locke replied [which is the copy we have here], Stillingfleet objected, Locke responded. This long and memorable controversy ended with the death of the Bishop soon after Locke's third response. Original calf boards, rebacked with five compartments on the spine and lettered REPLY" and at the base of the spine "1697". New endpapers. Page 127128 torn from the inside top edge down about 2". Otherwise, a lovely copy of this work. PHOTOS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. [Attributes: First Edition]

        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.

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.

        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.

        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.

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

        Dernieres decouvertes dans l'Amerique Septentrionale de M. de la Sale. Mises au jour par M. le Chevalier Tonti, Gouverneur du Fort Saint Louis, aux Islinois

      Paris: Jean Guignard, 1697. 8vo., (6 2/8 x 3 5/8 inches). 6-page publisher's catalogue at end. Title-page with woodcut device, woodcut head- and tail-pieces. Fine modern red morocco gilt, antique; preserved in a brown cloth clamshell box by Lamb & Buck. Provenance: near contemporary ownership inscription partially obscured at the head of the title-page dated 1698; modern book label on rear paste-down. THE FIRST ACCOUNT OF LA SALLE'S LAST, FATAL VOYAGE First edition, second issue with cancels for pages 167-168, 171-172 and 185-188. Written by La Salle's lieutenant, Tonti, who had entered Louis XIV's service as a cadet in 1668, "serving in several Mediterranean campaigns and losing his right hand in battle. To mitigate the difficulties caused by the loss of his hand, Tonti fitted himself with an artificial hand made either of iron, copper, or silver, which may have been articulated. La Salle noted that Tonti could accomplish tasks that required the use of two free arms. Tonty sometimes used his metal hand as an instrument of diplomacy with Indians, who throughout the Mississippi Valley and Great Lakes knew him as "the man with the iron hand." Unable to obtain further royal patronage at the end of the Dutch wars, Tonti became the chief lieutenant of La Salle, who had been granted permission to explore the Mississippi and exploit its resources... As La Salle's lieutenant, Tonti achieved many firsts in the European exploration and settlement of the North American interior. During the winter of 1678-1679, Tonti supervised construction of the Griffon, the first sailing vessel on the upper Great Lakes. Shortly thereafter he established and built the first post in the Illinois country, Fort Crèvecoeur, on Peoria Lake in early 1680. With La Salle he reached the mouth of the Mississippi River and claimed it for France in April 1682. In December Tonti established Fort St. Louis on a bluff of the Illinois River near present-day Ottawa, Illinois. From there, Tonti began to fashion the network of Franco-Indian alliances that would lay the groundwork for the "French crescent" that would eventually extend from Quebec City to New Orleans and constitute one of the most important factors in the Europeans' imperial contest for North America. In 1686 he established the first post in the Lower Mississippi Valley on the Arkansas River, a vital link in the crescent" (Foret). In the meantime La Salle returned to France and mounted a second expedition which mistakenly landed at Matagorda Bay, Texas (Fort Saint Louis). Tonti remained in charge of the outpost in Illinois territory but later led several missions down the Mississippi from there, hoping to find La Salle. In December 1687, Tonti finally learned that La Salle's men had murdered him and that his colony was on the brink of total destruction, "Tonti set out with a handful of Frenchmen and Indians to succor the hapless settlers. Almost succumbing to starvation themselves, Tonty's party eventually turned back, unable to locate the colony after searching as far as East Texas" (Foret). Though he denied authorship of the work, it has been shown to be based on first-hand accounts Tonti compiled from survivors of La Salle's expedition, whom he interviewed.

Met groote moeyte en arbeid op stads-kosten in vele jaren aangewend, en by een versameld door Casparus Commelin M. D. en botanicus horti Medici

      Amsterdam, P. and J. Blaeu and (weduwe van) Abraham van Someren (1697, 1701). Two parts in two. Folio (near matching at 39.8 x 26 cm and 40.0 x 25.5 cm). Part I: Latin half title; Latin title in two colours with title vignette; Dutch title (do.); engraved allegorical frontispiece showing the virgin of Amsterdam in a foreign (subtropical) landscape amidst exotic people offering plants as gifts; coat-of-arms of Joannes Huydecoper, and that of Joannes Commelin, dedication leaf to the mayors of Amsterdam; [8], 220 pp., 110 engraved plates showing 112 numbered plants with explanatory text leafs in Latin and Dutch, each with floral vignette at the end of each description. Contemporary vellum. Part II: Latin half title, allegorical frontispiece, showing Theophrastus (?) teaching botany in the real Hortus garden, with the houses along the Nieuwe Herengracht canal in the background, Dutch title page, dedication page (to the mayors of Amsterdam, and to the trustees of the Hortus). Coat-of-arms of Franciscus de Vroede (senator of the Hortus), and Joannes Huydecoper (curator), and Gerbrandus Pancras (do.). [4], 224, [4] pp., and 113 plates, numbered up to 112 with fig. 4 in two different states (on recto and verso of one leaf), as intended. Thus, in total, 2 frontispieces 5 coats-of-arms and 225 numbered plates on 222 leaves.* The plants described and figured were collected in Asia, the Americas and South Africa (Cape of Good Hope) by crew members of the merchant ships of the Dutch East and West India companies and donated to the Amsterdam Horticultural Garden, of which Jan Commelin was the director. Jan Commelin (1629-1692) died before the publication of part I of his manuscript, and this is acknowledged on the title pages of Part I. As further explained there, the botanist, zoologist and anatomist Frederik Ruysch (1638-1731) edited the work and added some annotations. Part II was written by Commelin's nephew, and successor, Caspar. The work is of an outstanding quality with beautiful plates with deep shades of grey and black. There are 20 plates depicting Aloes, but also many more exciting exotic plants. Part I with a few small, marginal spots, a few plates slightly age toned, but with strong impressions. Small hole in explanatory leaf to plate 79, some minor soiling to p. 218, contemporary handwriting (the Latin names of the species) in the margin of several plates. Part II with repair to the lower corner of fig. 88, traces of slight worming in the lower inner margin, but this is really unobtrusive. A faint half-circular water stain to outer margin of pp. 205-224 and index, somewhat stronger on figs 105-107, but also hardly distracting. In all a very good copy of this rare and important work on the plants kept in the Amsterdam Hortus Botanicus, which still exists to this day at its original location. Nissen quotes a wrong number of plates, probably counting frontispieces as well. This copy is super complete with 225 numbered figs on 222 leaves, which is one plate more than usually quoted as the maximum, but that is probably because fig. 4 (Part II) has two versions, meaning there are two figures displayed on one leaf (the leaf was printed on both sides), the only plate that was done that way in this entire work. It remains unclear if all copies have this particular double plate, since very few mention it in their descriptions nor is there any remark by the bibliographers on this topic. Furthermore almost all plates show one species, the figure number equals the number of plates, except that figs 42-44 (Part I) are on one plate, for a total of 112 numbered figs on 110 leaves. British Museum (NH) Cat., p. 371; Stafleu & Cowan, 1187; Nissen BBI, 389; Pritzel, 1833.
