        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.

        The Citron Tree

      Amsterdam 1705 - Maria Sibylla Merian (1647-1717) Watercolor transfer print Paper size: 20” x 14” 31” x 24” framed This spectacular examples of Maria Sibylla Merian’s work are from one of a very few transfer-print watercolor volumes known to exist. Merian herself prepared the volume. After an uncolored print was made, she applied dampened paper to it, pressing by hand to create an image of the print in reverse. In this volume she chose to block out the plate numbers and then add by hand, to some images, numbers and notations. Merian then painstakingly watercolored the dried paper herself, ensuring that the colors were true to the specimens she had seen in South America, and also allowing her style to emerge with greatest clarity. The volume was not meant for sale, and its intended purpose cannot be known with any certainty. Perhaps it was created as a gift for a wealthy and important patron, perhaps Merian meant to keep it herself. What can be stated without a doubt is that these splendid images represent a unique opportunity to acquire original works by an artist who broke barriers as a woman, as a scientist and artist, and whose accomplishments are no less impressive today than they were in her time.

      1705 - Maria Sibylla Merian (1647-1717) Hand-colored copperplate engraving from Metamorphosis Insectorum Surinamensium Amsterdam: 1705 Paper size: 20" x 14" 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, and 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 her compositions 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 of scientists 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. She undoubtedly completed commissions for them and others.

Second German edition of Curiositez de la nature et de l'art sur la végétation (1705) by Pierre Le Lorrain de Vallemont, translated into German by Ferdinand Ludwig von Breßler und Aschenburg. De Vallemont (1649-1721) deals with many aspects of gardening and agronomy, among others advice on cultivating grain, fruits, trees, but also on how to make an estate profitable. The second part included, is a German translation of L'art ou la Maniere particuliere & seure de tailler les arbres fruitiers (Amsterdam, 1697). The author of the preface states that it was written by a "Liebhaber" and translated into German, but it is most likely an excerpt from Jean de La Quintinye's work on pruning with the same title.With the bookplate of C. Otto G. Wibom on pastedown. Binding slightly soiled. Good copy of a curious work.
