Maria Sibylla Merian
Amsterdam 1705 - Maria Sibylla Merian (1647-1717) From Metamorphosis Insectorum Surinamensium Amsterdam: 1705 Hand-colored copperplate engravings 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. 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 considerat … [Click Below for Full Description]

Newton, Isaac
London: Tonson Osborn and Longman. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. FIRST EDITION, complete with three folding engraved plates of the Temple of Solomon. "In his old age, Newton turned again to the theological interests that had burned with consuming intensity during the years of his early manhood... In the years 1705-1710, he returned to theology with renewed vigor, and for all his editions of the Principia and Opticks, theology was the primary occupation of his old age... Newton's conclusions in theology had been as radical as his conclusions in natural philosophy. So far they had seen the light of day only within a limited circle of trusted confidants... "Newton had been at work revising his interpretation of the prophesies and other theological works for about ten years when Caroline, princess of Wales, heard about his new principles of chronology in 1716. Interested, she summoned Newton and asked for a copy of what he had written. Newton never lightly surrendered one of his compositions. He had even less desire to hand over to the princess of Wales a treatise which might still have contained assertions heretical enough to secure his instant dismissal from the Mint. Well schooled as he was in the art of delay, he pleaded that the work was 'imperfect and confus'd,' but he knew very well that one did not dally with a royal command. In haste he drew up an 'Abstract' of his chronology, what was later called the 'Short Chronology,' which put the work into 'that shape the preperest for her Perusal...,' and delivered it to the princess … [Click Below for Full Description]

Maria Sibylla Merian
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.

SCHENK, Petrus
Petrus Schenk, Amsterdam 1705 - Beautiful map of southern France in high detail. Shows the coastline from Narbonne to the Italian border in the south, and Lyon in the north. Minor aging along edges. Petrus Schenk (c.1660--1711) was a German engraver and cartographer. He began his training in Amsterdam in the art of mezzotint and soon began working closely with Gerard Valck. The two took advantage of the bustling cartographic trade in the city and quickly expanded their business from portraits and prints into maps and globes. In 1700, Schenk grew the business further by moving to Leipzig, Germany and opening a shop. As his sons and grandson returned to the Netherlands to become active engravers as well, the Schenk firm developed into one of the best-known publishing houses in 18th-century Amsterdam. This map attests to Schenk's prolific production and skill in both cartographic artistry and business. Map. Engraving with original hand outline.

The science of equitation and the means of teaching it developed primarily in 16th century Italy, and moved northward through Europe to England in the ensuing centuries.

Apparently there is very little difference between the early editions of this book; this title page is exactly like that of the first, but for the above-quoted line. Rebound, probably in the late 19th century, rebacked with boards that may be original, but the binder has added blind-stamped devices to match his devices on the spine. The spine is blind-stamped; the only gilt is '1705' at the bottom. A good plus copy overall. The boards once had gilt edges but it has mostly worn off, and the corners are worn down to the cardboard. The newer spine is still nice with just some rubbing at the ends. Hinges have weakened (endpapers show splits) but are still holding well. Internally, there are marginal water stains up to p. 15 of the Preface; the first original leaf is the title page, which is moderately foxed, as the next 2 pages; foxing and darkening of the text block comes and goes throughout the text. Many pages are quite bright; pp. 113-144 and 305-320 have the most darkening. Text consists of title page, Dedication, The Bookseller to the Reader, the Epistle Dedicatory to His Royal Highness Prince Posterity, the Preface, 'A Tale of a Tub' pp. 33-221, 'A Full and True Account of the Battel Fought Last Friday, between the Antient and the Modern Books in St. James's Library' pp. 223-278, and 'A Discourse Concerning the Mechanical Operation of the Spirit. In a Letter to a Friend. A Fragment' pp. 279-322. This is the last original page, followed by the binder's buff endpapers. Please e … [Click Below for Full Description]

CRULL, Jodocus, presumed author.
1705. London: Printed by R. J. for T. Newborough, at the Golden Ball, J. Knapton, at the Crown, in St. Paul's Church-Yard; and R. Burrough, 1705. 8vo, [xxiv], 621, [10(index)] pp. Contemporary panelled calf, long ago rebacked, with original backstrip laid down, and corners restored, four black morocco backstrip labels )one chipped) bordered and lettered in gilt. With the bookplate of the soldier and Jacobite William North (1678-1734), sixth Baron North and Baron Gray of Rolleston. Covers slightly worn, portion of title label lacking; with interior dampstains. A good reading copy only. § First Edition. A very scarce and little-known early account of the Americas. Not surprisingly, the history of Asia occupies 414 pages ( including a long recapitulation of the Bible); while Africa receives just 100 pages, and only 110 pages are devoted to the upstart America. This final section is primarily concerned with accounts of the Aztec and Inca Empires and their conquest by the Spaniards; history and legend are thoroughly blended. Authorship of this rare compendium is usually ascribed to the failed physician and "miscellaneous writer" (DNB). Jodocus Crull, whose several historical publications included a translation into English of Baron von Pufendorf's Introduction to the History of the Principal Kingdoms and States of Europe, published in 1699. James Ford Bell Library Cat. 145. Sabin 32176 (listing only the title, and that erroneously).

Det innehåller bl.a. hans hyllningstal över drottning Kristina, hållet i Stockholm 1650, och begravningstalet över Lennart Torstensson från 1651, liksom akademiska tal över Tacitus, Vellejus Paterculus etc. Johann Heinrich Boeclerus (1611-72) var tysk historiker och från år 1637 professor i vältalighet i Strassburg. Som sådan introducerade han den unge Schefferus i studiet av klassikerna. Han kallades av drottning Kristina till den skytteanska professuren i Uppsala 1647, men avböjde och rekommenderade istället Schefferus. 1649 kom han ändå till Sverige och Uppsala som professor i vältalighet och 1651 utnämndes han till rikshistoriograf. Han stannade dock endast till 1651, då han återvände till Strassburg och professorsstolen i historia.
