[FLOYER, JOHN]
London: Richard Wilkins at the King's Head, 1698. FIRST EDITION. A long dedication to Dr. Phineas Fowke is followed by two sections "to the reader," the second of which details the "several species of the asthmas." Contemporary calf, rebacked (in 1939), spine label; minor spotting, otherwise a very nice copy. From the library of Burnes Floyer of Lichfield, a descendant of the author, with his signature on the first blank, and the bookplates of Hyman Miller M.D. and Kenneth Garth Huston Jr. First edition of the first clear description of bronchial asthma. It is the first major monograph on the subject in English. Floyer clearly defines asthma, separating it from other pulmonary disorders. In this work, he discusses the influence of heredity in asthma and includes an early description of emphysema. According to Sakula's article on Floyer's book published in Thorax (Vol. 39, no. 4, 1984), "he [Floyer] considered that the cause of the dyspnoea was bronchial constriction due to spasm, and he regarded the spasm to be tonic, more akin to catalepsy than to the clonic convulsion of epilepsy."Floyer (1649-1734), an eminent physician at Lichfield, is noted for his many contributions to medicine. One of the most eccentric physicians of his time, his works show great independence of thought as well as a true spirit of research. Floyer suffered from asthma for many years and often made himself a subject for investigation during his research into asthma.

MUN, Thomas.
London: printed by E[dward]. J[ones]. for Tho. Horne,, 1698. The bible of later mercantilists" Small octavo (148 x 92 mm). Recent quarter calf, red morocco label, marbled sides, vellum tips. Closely cropped at head occasionally affecting running head, pages a little browned; a very good copy. First edition under this title, the third overall, of "the bible of later mercantilists" (PMM), first published as England's Treasure by Forraign Trade in 1664, though originally written in the 1620s. Retrospectively recognised as one of the key economic writers of the Stuart age, Mun's work was not published until some 23 years after his death, at a propitious moment on the eve of the second Dutch war, perhaps the clearest case in English history of a purely commercial war. Mun thought that the best way to increase the wealth of the nation was by foreign trade, "wherein wee must ever observe this rule; to sell more to strangers yearly than wee consume of theirs in value", thereby obtaining a favourable balance of trade. "The mercantilist programme in this book clearly symbolized the marriage of economics and national policy in the seventeenth century" (op. cit.) "Although the significance of the balance of trade had been aired by earlier writers, Mun's assertion of its importance profoundly influenced English economic thought for the ensuing 150 years" (ODNB).

THWAITES, Edward
Oxoniae: Theatrum Sheldonianum, 1698. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. An absolutely stunning and highly rare, 17th-century printing of an Anglo-Saxon Bible! Known as 'The Heptateuch', which is the Pentateuch plus the books of Joshua and Judges, this Bible was collected and edited by Edward Thwaites. Thwaites, a prominent Oxford scholar, published this Bible and curiously included non-canonical books in this work including the Gospel of Nicodemus and a short fragment of the poem of 'Judith'. These books were translated into Anglo-Saxon (or Old English) by Aelfric of Eynsham - overall, a very rare and desirable printing of the Bible. This first edition was published 1698 Oxford and features a stunning, hand-colored frontispiece, as well as in-text vignettes and illustrated initials by Michael Burghers. This book is also believed to be one of the first pieces of Anglo-Saxon poetry to be published by an English press. [Attributes: First Edition]

Mackenzie,October 1934, with bookplate a very good and crisp copy of this 2nd edition, rarer than the Amsterdam edition also published in 1698 Marcello Malpighi (10 March 1628 - 29 November 1694) was an Italian biologist and physician, who is referred to as the "Founder of microscopical anatomy, histology & Father of physiology and embryology". Malpighi's name is born by several physiological features related to the biological excretory system, such as the Malpighian corpuscules and Malpighian pyramids of the kidneys and the Malpighian tubule system of insects. The botanical family Malpighiaceae is also named after him. He was the first person to see capillaries in animals, and he discovered the link between arteries and veins that had eluded William Harvey. Malpighi was one of the earliest people to observe red blood cells under a microscope, after Jan Swammerdam . His treatise De polypo cordis (1666) was important for understanding blood composition, as well as how blood clots. In it, Malpighi described how the form of a … [Click Below for Full Description]

LEEUWENHOEK, A. Van.-
Delft, by Hendrik van Kroonevelt, 1698. 4to (187 x 150mm). pp. (2), 34, with 1 engraved plate and 3 engravings in the text. Letter of G. Bidloo to Antony van Leeuwenhoek; concerning the animals, which are sometimes found in the liver of sheep and other beasts. According to Dobell (pages 220 & 400) "'The Dutch edition is extremely rare'. Fasciola hepatica - the worm itself - was well known to Leeuwenhoek; for the Dutch anatomist Bidloo (1649-1713) dedicated a little memoir to him, in 1698, in which it was described and figured. At a later date, Leeuwenhoek himself wrote a letter to the Royal Society on the 'Worms observ'd in Sheep Livers'- of which an English abstract was published in 'Phil. Trans' (1704)". Govert Bidloo or Govard Bidloo was a Dutch Golden Age physician, anatomist, poet and playwright. He was the personal physician of William III of Orange-Nassau, Dutch stadholder and King of England, Scotland and Ireland. Bidloo was also a prolific and popular poet, opera librettist, and playwright. He wrote the libretto for the first-ever Dutch opera, Ceres, Venus en Bacchus (1686) by Johan Schenck.//B.M. (Nat. Hist.) I, p. 161.

Fletcher's other two important works were: Two Discourses concerning the Affairs of Scotland (1698), in which he discussed the problems of Scottish trade and economics; and An Account of a Conversation concerning a right regulation of Governments for the common good of Mankind (1703).|Wing F1295; Aldis 3747; Wing S2650, Kress 2267; Wing A3298.

1698. Augsburg und Leipzig, Bey Lorenz Kröniger und Gottlieb Göbels, 1698. 8°. (1) Bl., 2074 (recte 1174) S. Mit gestochenem Frontispiz. Pergamentband aus der Zeit mit handschriftlichem Rückentitel. Wellcome II, 535. - Waller 2834. - Hirsch-H. II, 444. - VD17 39:142868Z. - Krivatsy 3734. - Dünnhaupt IX/2, 1433. - Einzige Ausgabe. «Ein kulturhistorisch sehr interessanter ärztlicher Schriftsteller» (Hirsch-H.). Über den Autor ist wenig bekannt ausser, dass er aus Glogau stammte und sich königlich-polnischer Leibmedicus nannte. Er veröffentlichte eine Reihe von medizinischen und naturwissenschaftlichen Darstellungen in Romanform meist unter dem Titel «des getreuen Eckardts». In der Form des Reiseromans wird das gesamte chirurgische Wissen in Europa seiner Zeit dargestellt. Der Wortschatz der Romane Ettners wurde von den Gebrüdern Grimm in ihr Wörterbuch aufgenommen. Die Texte müssen in ihrer Zeit sehr populär und weit verbreitet gewesen sein, obwohl sie nur in wenigen Auflagen erschienen sind. Heute sind sie nahezu unauffindbar geworden. Sowohl in literarischer wie medizinischer Hinsicht hochinteressant. - Das hübsche Frontispiz mit kleinem Wurmgang am unteren Rand ebenso über die letzten 20 Blätter. Titel mit altem handschriftlichem Besitzvermerk. Titel und Frontispiz fingerfleckig, sonst sauberes Exemplar.

R." on the spine label in gilt and with the booklabel of Thomas Foley of Great Witley Court in Worcester. In his Discourse of Government relating to Militias Fletcher argued that the Royal Army in Scotland should be replaced by local militias - aposition of republican virtue which was to return a half-century later and foreshadowed the thinking of Adam Ferguson in lauding martial virtues over commercially minded polit society which he thought unmanly. Fletcher's other two important works were: Two Discourses concerning the Affairs of Scotland (1698), in which he discussed the problems of Scottish trade and economics; and An Account of a Conversation concerning a right regulation of Governments for the common good of Mankind (1703).

Having studied at Wittenberg, Arnold came under the influence of Philipp Spener, the 'father of pietism', and made his name in 1696 with his work Die erste Liebe der gemeinen Jesu Christi. Invited to take up a professorship at Giessen in 1697, Arnold found himself moving towards radical spiritualism, influenced by Christian Thomasius and Jakob Böhme, and, after teaching for only a short time, left his post, his resignation attracting great attention. His Offenhertzige Beka ntniss, written in June 1698, explains his decision: Arnold found his piety in disharmony with the dispersion of secular knowledge and the university system, and the holding of a secular office, a piece of this world, as impossible for a Christian. Another edition appeared in Berlin in 1699.Following his resignation, Arnold produced perhaps hi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Folio, pp. [2], 462, [5], [1 (blank)]; old marginal repair to S4; an excellent, broad-margined copy in contemporary Cambridge-panelled calf, gilt red morocco lettering-piece to spine; a few scuffs, skilfully rebacked and recornered with lettering-piece relaid; ownership inscriptions of Charles Pearson, 1834, and Francis Caldwell Holland, 1894, to upper pastedown.First edition of this major text of republican theory, of exceptional impact in Britain, Europe, and America in the following century. Written between 1681 and 1683, the Discourses circulated in manuscript until their first edition fifteen years after their author's execution. Placing Sidney 'alongside Milton as the master of republican eloquence' (ODNB), the text contains 'the only explicit seventeenth-century defence of "rebellion"', allowing the manuscript found in Sidney's possession to be used as the second witness necessary for his trial for treason when no other could be found to testify against him. 'If the laws of God and men are therefore of no effect, when the magistracy is left at liberty to break them, and if the lusts of those, who are too strong for the tribunals of justice, cannot otherwise be restrained, than by seditions, tumults, and war, those seditions, tumults and wars, are justified by the laws of God and man they who deny this deny all help against an usurping tyrant, or the perfidiousness of a lawfully created magistrate, who adds the crimes of ingratitude and treachery to usurpation'.

Dickinson, Jonathan
Philadelphia, 1698. [4]pp., on a single folio sheet, docketed on the fourth page. Original red wax seal. Original folds, some expertly and unobtrusively strengthened on verso. Light toning, mild edge wear. Very good plus. An extraordinarily rare example of Jonathan Dickinson's signature, applied to a Philadelphia real estate document near the close of the 17th century. The document itself records the sale of a "lott of land" by Daniel Van Beeke to Edward Shippen for fifty pounds sterling. The lot measured 198 by 20 feet, and its location is described by noting the names of the owners of adjoining lots, though "Delaware Front Street" is recorded as the southern border of the lot. At the time of this transaction, Philadelphia had only about 2500 residents. Edward Shippen (1639-1712) was among the most prominent of Philadelphians, serving as the second mayor of the town (though the first under William Penn's charter). The year after this purchase he served as the Chief Justice of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, and he later served as President of the Provincial Council. He has signed this document on the second page, which also notes that Van Beeke received a further payment from Shippen in 1701. The transaction is witnessed by three men, Abraham Hardman, David Lloyd, and John Cadwallader, next to William Penn's proprietary wax seal. The document is further "acknowledged in the County Court held at Philadelphia" by Jonathan Dickinson, who was serving as clerk of the Philadelphia County Court and the clerk of the Pennsylvania Assembly in the year the present document was … [Click Below for Full Description]

Dickinson, Jonathan
Philadelphia, 1698. [4]pp., on a single folio sheet, docketed on the fourth page. Original red wax seal. Original folds, some expertly and unobtrusively strengthened on verso. Light toning, mild edge wear. Very good plus. An extraordinarily rare example of Jonathan Dickinson's signature, applied to a Philadelphia real estate document near the close of the 17th century. The document itself records the sale of a "lott of land" by Daniel Van Beeke to Edward Shippen for fifty pounds sterling. The lot measured 198 by 20 feet, and its location is described by noting the names of the owners of adjoining lots, though "Delaware Front Street" is recorded as the southern border of the lot. At the time of this transaction, Philadelphia had only about 2500 residents. Edward Shippen (1639-1712) was among the most prominent of Philadelphians, serving as the second mayor of the town (though the first under William Penn's charter). The year after this purchase he served as the Chief Justice of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, and he later served as President of the Provincial Council. He has signed this document on the second page, which also notes that Van Beeke received a further payment from Shippen in 1701. The transaction is witnessed by three men, Abraham Hardman, David Lloyd, and John Cadwallader, next to William Penn's proprietary wax seal. The document is further "acknowledged in the County Court held at Philadelphia" by Jonathan Dickinson, who was serving as clerk of the Philadelphia County Court and the clerk of the Pennsylvania Assembly in the year the present document was … [Click Below for Full Description]
