        Wycke-Bockies, Plate 51.

      Amsterdam c 1705 - Engraving with hand-colour, good condition. Dimensions: plate mark 350 by 285mm. (13.75 by 11 inches), sheet 510 by 350mm. (20 by 13.75 inches). From "Surinamese flora and insects" or "Dissertatio de generatione et metamorphosibus insectorum Surinamensium". Maria Sibyl Merian (1647-1717) was amongst the first female travellers to South America, taking this momentous journey at the age of 55. Whilst in Surinam she made drawings of the flora and fauna she encountered, and returned to Germany in order to etch these images and publish this great work. It remains one of the most decorative yet factual works of Natural History. She died in Berlin soon after her return. Dunthorne 205.

Brunet V, 486; Graesse VI, 464 - John Spencer (1630-1693), Geistlicher und Gelehrter, Master des Corpus Christi College, Cambridge. Als Theologe und Hebraist wurde er durch das vorl Werk bekannt, eine Dritte Auflage der erstmals 1685 erschienenen Pionierarbeit der vergleichenden Religionswissenschaft. Darin entwickelt er die These, daß das Judentum nicht die erste Religion der frühesten Menschheitsgeschichte war. Er baute seine Thesen auf Maimonides auf und verwendete dazu die gesamte in seiner Zeit bekannte theologische, wissenschaftliche und übrige Literatur. Dabei ging er erstmals mit den Methoden der Aufklärung vor. Durch seine Wiederentdeckung der Rolle Ägyptens für die biblische Tradition wurde er auch ein Vorreiter der Ägyptologie und löste eine Welle der Ägyptenbegeisterung aus. - "The foundations of the science of comparative religion. In this work Spencer maintained that many Jewish laws and customs could be linked with those of other Semitic peoples" (Encyclopedia Judaica XV,261)

First and only edition of Van den Burg's revised edition of the first Russian emblem book. The original emblem book was published in the Netherlands in 1705 as Symbola et Emblemata, with captions in Russian, German, Dutch, etc. It was published as part of a deal by Tsar Peter the Great granting the Dutch merchant Jan Tesing the right to print books in Holland for sale in Russia. The emblems were copied from Daniel de la Feuille's Devises et emblems anciennes et modernes and Devises et emblems d'amour, themselves based on the classic emblem books by Camerarius, Heinsius, Saavedra, Cats and Vaenius. The first genuinely Russian edition was published in 1788. This edition by the Dutch poet Hermanus van den Burg (1682-1752), uses the original plates and replaces most of the captions, including the Russian, by new two-line verses in Dutch.Binding heavily rubbed. With a stain and a few small clean tears in the inner margins of 7 leaves, otherwise internally in very good condition.

      . Amsterdam, Paul Marret, 1705, 8°, (5), 260, pp., Frontispiece, 2 engraved plates, one depicting the coat of arms of dedicatee and the other a cross-section of the coronary vein, Halbldereinband im Stil der Zeit; St.a.Tit.. First Edition - Rare. Vieussen's cardiovascular studies precipitated several new discoveries. He "was among the first to describe the morbid changes in mitral stenosis, the throbbing pulse in aortic insufficiency, and the first correctly to describe the structure of the left ventricle, the course of the coronary vessels and the valve in the coronary vein. He was the first to diagnose thoraic aneurysm during the life of the patient. Vieussens included a classic description of the symptoms of aortic regurgitation in his book" Garrison-Morton. - Raymond Vieussens (ca. 1635-1715), French anatomist and physiologist, after his medicine studies in Montpellier became famous for his book on the nervous system, Neurographia universalis (1684) and he became the physician to several leading citizens and members of the French aristocracy at the Royal Court. In 1688 he was designated as Royal physician, a position probably procured for him by Fagon, the famous and powerful court physician, to whom this work is dedicated. - - Garrison-Morton No.2729; Waller No. 9963, Blake p.474

        De Legibus Hebraeorum Ritualibus et earum Rationibus. Libri Tres. Editio Tertia.

      Ioh. Frid. Zeitlerum, Leipzig 1705 - Quarto. [20], 1504, [82]pp. Original full vellum with gold-stamped lettering and borders on spine. All edges red. Marbled endpapers. Ex-libris of Biblioth. Collegii Carol and ex-libris of Ducis Brunsvicensis et Luneburgensis at rear of front board. Illustrated woodcut vignette on title-page. Decorative initials, head- and tailpieces. 2 green ribbon markers. In his chief work, Spencer deserted the time-honoured paths traced by commentators, and 'may justly be said to have laid the foundations of the science of comparative religion. In its special subject, in spite of certain defects, it still remains by far the most important book on the religious antiquities of the Hebrews' (Robertson Smith, Religion of the Semites, 1894, Pref. p. vi). The remarkable nature of Spencer's achievement is enhanced when, it is remembered that oriental studies were then in their infancy, and that he was compelled to derive nearly all his data from classical writers of Greece and Rome, from the Christian fathers, the works of Josephus, or from the Bible itself. Spencer professed that his object was 'to clear the Deity from arbitrary and fantastic humour,' but it was inevitable that his orthodoxy should be questioned. 2 small scratches on front board. Minor age-toning on covers. Spine slightly soiled. Contemporary annotation at back of fly leaf. Some sporadic damp-staining on outer margin of pages (never affecting text). Text in Latin with some Hebrew. Binding in overall very good, interior in very good to near fine condition. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Plate 61 - Sweet White Guava

      Amsterdam 1705 - Maria Sibylla Merian (1647-1717) From Metamorphosis Insectorum Surinamensium Amsterdam: 1705 Hand-colored copperplate engraving 20” x 14”; 24” x 28” framed Maria Sybilla Merian (1647-1717) was born into a century of unparalleled change. The Thirty Years’ War, that had ravaged Europe since 1618, ended the year after her birth. The resulting Treaty of Westphalia brought about new religious freedoms. This new era of Enlightenment allowed science to blossom. It was this atmosphere that such figures such as Sir Isaac Newton (1643-1727) was able to define the laws of gravity, and George Buffon (1707-1788) advanced the evolution debate by exploring the theory that all living creatures are derived from one species that has changed over time. The great English poet, Alexander Pope (1688-1744), summed up this spirit of discovery perfectly, writing: “Know then thyself; presume not God to scan. The proper study of mankind is man.” With the new age of discovery, science more than ever before, came to depend upon the artist’s skill in illustration. Maria Sibylla was born in Frankfurt, Germany on April 2, 1647 to the famous publisher, Matthias Merian, and his second wife, Johanna Sibylla Heim. At the age of three her father died, and one year later her mother married the Dutch painter, Jacob Marrell, also a resident of Frankfurt. He provided her with an early artistic training and also introduced her to natural history illustration. Merian not only concentrated upon the beauty of flowers, the majority of hercompositions included insects, an unusual consideration for a woman of the 17th century. However, in her publication, Metamorphosis Insectorum Surinamensium, Maria Sibylla Merian was to confess: “From my youth onward I have been concerned with the study of insects. I began with silkworms in my native city, Frankfurt am Main; then I observed the far more beautiful butterflies and moths that developed from other kinds of caterpillars.” Her ability to study certain caterpillars was aided by Marrell’s brother, a silk trader in Frankfurt. While her fascination was most certainly real, for she was to travel with her daughter Dorothea to Surinam in 1699 specifically to record the insect life of the Dutch colony, it also provided her with a modicum of financial security. The excitement of discovery extended beyond the confines ofscientists to that of the collector, and his cabinet of curiosities. Eager to acquire the latest discoveries, these wealthy collectors employed artists to record their collections. Maria was acquainted with the Amsterdam collectors Nicholas and Jonas Witsen, and Livinus Vincent, the first of whom ensured that she received financial assistance from the city for her perilous journey to Surinam.

Von den Spanischen Pocken oder Frantzosen-Kranckheit und derselben Cur. Alles auf Cartesii Lehr-Sätze gegründet. Aus dem Holländischen übersetzet.

      Leipzig, Th. Fritsch, 1705. - (20 Bl.), 788 S., (6 Bl.). 4°. Lederband der Zeit mit handschriftlichem Rückenschild. Erste deutsche Ausgabe. - Lindeboom, Dutch Medical Biography 1488/89; Hirsch/H. IV, 464; nicht bei Blake und Waller. - Die posthum erschienenen medizinisch-chirurgischen Schriften des holländischen Mediziners H. Overkamp (1651-1693). Mit einem umfangreichen Kapitel über "Speiß und Tranck", u. a. die Erörterung der Frage , warum Tabak den Hunger stillt. Für die Geschichte der venerischen Krankheiten ist das letzte Kapitel des Buches von Interesse, in dem Overkamp zwei verschiedene Methoden zur Heilung der Syphilis empfiehlt. "Die erste dauert sechs Monate lang und ist eine Schwitzkur, während welcher immer sieben Tage hindurch ein Decoct oder das Extract vom Guajakholz, und am achten Tage sechs Pillen mit 10 Gran von weissem Quecksilberpräcipitat verabfolgt werden. Die andere Methode besteht in einer Salivationskur. Man sieht: Overkamp war gar nicht weit von der heutigen 'Methode des traitements successifs' Fournier's entfernt" (Proksch, Die Geschichte der venerischen Krankheiten I, 294). Der Verfasser - ein überzeugter Anhänger Descartes' - promovierte 1677 zum Dr. med. in Leiden, ließ sich in Harlingen nieder, doch scheint er 1683 nach Amsterdam übergesiedelt zu sein, wo er bis zu seinem Tode als praktischer Arzt wirksam war. - Sehr schönes, sauberes Exemplar.
