        Opera Posthuma. In quibus Excellentissimi Authoris vita continetur, ac pleraque . Editio ultima figuris æneis illustrata, priori longe præferenda.

      Georgium Gallet, 1698., Amsterdam: - 4to. [2], [iii-xvi], 136, [137-38], 139-267, [268-271], 272-387, [1 blank] pp. Frontispiece, 19 numbered folding plates; extremities of pastedowns, frontispiece (gutter partly loose), title-page, and free end-leaves chipped, occasional light scattered foxing, not affecting legibility. Original full vellum, holograph spine title; soiled, spine foot torn. Library call number mounted at spine foot. Bookplate of Yale University Library, donated from the library of Professor John S. Ely, M.D., 1908. Title-page ownership signature of C. Helvigio, Lugd. Bat., 1710. Verso title-page ownership signature of Gustavus Guilielmus Henrici, D., 1769. Very good. FIRST AMSTERDAM EDITION, predating Garrison & Morton’s entry by 2 years (Garrison & Morton 4299), and succeeding the rare first edition published for the Royal Society by A. & J. Churchill in 1697. Opera Posthuma is divided into three sections. “The first section consists largely of correspondence arising out of Malpighi’s published works, on the viscera, heart polyps, silkworms, anatomy of plants and animals, helminthology, &c. The 19 plates at the end of the vol. belong to this section” (Osler 987). The second section, with its own engraved title-page, contains Malipghi’s “De structure glandularum conglobatarum,” followed by Alfonso Borelli’s “Scrittura fatta l?anno 1664 sopra le opposizioni delli Sig. Finchio, e Fava, Inglesi…” (Osler 740), followed by “Malpigi’s work (written in the name of his pupil, Placido di Papadopoli) in defence of his newer studies in anatomy against Liparo’s ‘Galenistarum triumphum?, 1665” (Osler 987). “A short report by J. B. Giraldus (with a sep. title-[age) is between Sbaraglia’s ‘De recentiorum medicorum studio? and Malpighi’s response thereto” (Osler 987). Borelli’s piece, Osler 740, first appears here in Malpighi’s Opera Posthuma. Osler’s 1697 edition differs from this 1698 one in two distinct ways: The first sections are the same, but the 1698 edition’s second section begins with “De structure glandularum,” while that piece constitutes the third section of the first edition. Both the editions have separate title-pages for this section, but the 1697 edition’s says “Lond., R. Chiswell, 1697” and includes an engraved frontispiece, while the 1698 edition’s reads “Epistola, Regiæ Societati, Londini ad Scientiam Naturalem promovendam inftitutæ, Dicata” and has no such frontispiece. Essentially, “De structure glandularum” has been moved from the end of the book in the first edition to the beginning of section 2 in the second. The first edition’s second section does is not separated by a title-page, but this piece appears at the end with its own title-page and engraved frontispiece. The first edition’s second section does have its own title-page, but has no engraved frontispiece for the section. Both editions have a separate title-page to mark Giraldus? piece. “Before his death Malpighi arranged for many of his manuscripts…to be translated into Latin by his friends Silvestro Bonfiglioli and Giovanni Lodovico Donelli and published posthumously by the Royal Society” (Meli, p. 112). His Omnia Posthuma contains “replies to his antagonists Michele Lipari, dating from his stay at Messina, and Professor Gerolamo Sbaraglia of Bologna” that are more combative in tone than what is characteristic his works published during his lifetime (Heilbron, p. 485). Malpighi was an Italian anatomist and microscopist, after whom many physiological features are named. He taught at both Bologna and Messina, before being summoned to Rome to serve as chief physician for Pope Innocent XII in 1691. Malpighi was ahead of his time, and rejected some archaic notions about diseases being caused by an imbalance in the “humors.” “On the innocent quality of human bile there occurs to me a good remark made by Malpighi (Opera Posthuma, p. 22).

With 2 title-pages, each with the same engraved illustration by l'Admiral (a seated skeleton left, facing a putto on a table with specimens in jars of fixative right, the sun at the putto's hand), and each with a different colour-printed mezzotint, each printed from 4 plates (3 colours plus black, ca. 17 x 12.5 cm) by Jan Ladmiral after Frederik Ruysch, pasted on inside of back wrapper, with green background and gilt border. Later stiff paper wrappers.

First editions of two anatomical descriptions of parts of the brain of a fetus, originally preserved and drawn by the Dutch anatomist Frederik Ruysch and here colour printed by Jan Ladmiral. They are pioneering applications of colour printing, among of the earliest colour-printed anatomical illustrations. The first depicts the interior brain tissue of a fetus about 8 months after conception, The second (which refers to the other as already published) shows the surface tissue of the same brain. Each gives the explanation of the plate in Latin, French and Dutch, These explanations also note that the illustrations are not painted but "tot verwondering" (amazingly) printed at a press "door een ongehoorde konst" (by use of an unprecedented art).The painter Jan Ladmiral (1698-1773) and his brother Jacob were pupils and assistants of Jacob Christoph le Blon in London, who invented the method of mezzotint colour printing. It seems that when Ladmiral offered his services to the famous Albinus in Leiden, he presented this technique as entirely new and his own, without ever mentioning Le Blon. Ladmiral produced 6 such anatomical illustrations for 6 separate publications, later published together under the joint title: Anatomische voorwerpen door Jan Ladmiral .With the letterpress leaves browned, but the illustration in very good condition.

        Myographia nova - Untere Extremitäten - 11 Kupferstichtafeln.

      Myographia nova, or, a graphical description of all the muscles in the human body. - London, Milbourn, 1698, 11 (354 x 234 mm) Kupferstichtafeln. Browne "gab ein anatomisches Tafelwerk, zweifellos in Anlehnung an das Werk des Casseri heraus, ... Neu ist in seiner Myographia nova, daß er die volle Benennungen unmittelbar in die Muskeln oder bei kleineren Figuren neben die Zeichnungen drucken ließ. Er führte damit eine Form im Druck (wieder) ein, welche das Auffinden der Deutungen einer anatomischen Zeichnung wesentlich beschleunigt." Richard N.

      Patavii, (Padua) 1698. - 2 nd. edition of volume I. (Only volume I of 2 volumes). Folio [3] Bl., 45 S., [2] Bl., 46 S., [8] Bl., 81 S., [1] Bl., 94 S., [5] Bl., 126 S., [2] Bl. Contemporary vellum. Good condition. The rare first volume contains a biography / detailed description the life of Muhammed (24 pages), a resumee of the principal thoughts of the Islam with several sources based on islamic teachers and it contains as well the "refutations" of each sutra, given first in Arabic, followed in Latin translation. Te. A ground-breaking work of Quranic scholarship, a valuable source for the study of the Quran and an essential source for European views of Islam. Der erste Band, Prodromus ad refutationem Alcorani erschien 1691 in der Druckerei der Propaganda Fide und enthält neben einer Darstellung des Lebens des Propheten Mohammed eine Zusammenfassung der Grundlehren des Islam mit zahlreichen Quellenverweisen auf islamische Theologen und Gelehrte. Marracci vertritt in seinen Darlegungen u.a. die für heutige Leser befremdliche Ansicht, dass die Lehren Mohammeds und Luthers sich nicht allzu sehr voneinander unterschieden. Der zweite Band, Refutatio alcorani, erschien 1698 in Padua und ist Kaiser Leopold I gewidmet.
