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).

BOECLERUS, Johann Heinrich.
Strassburg, Jo. Reinholdi Dulsseckeri, 1705. 4:o. (8),+ 508,+ (12) s. Titel tryckt i rött och svart. Enstaka fläckar och fuktstänk. Samtida halvpergamentband med något trasiga röda marmorerade pärmpapper. Exlibris, och med Bengt Löws namnteckning i blyerts. Andra upplagan av detta samlingsverk med hyllnings- och begravningstal, först utgivet 1654. 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.

Jean Mapillon (1632-1707), famous French Benedictine scholar and historiographer, is considered the founder of paleography and diplomatics. He became famous for his "De Re Diplomatica" where he gives a detailed history of the Latin script and demonstrates the way in which the handwriting of his day developed out of the capital Roman letters. Following universal acclaim for this work, he was invited to draw up a plan of studies for persons leading a monastic life. This worked first appeared in French in 1691, was translated into Latin in 1702 and in 1705 by Josepho Porta Astensi and was an enormous success.

Overkamp, Heidenreich:
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.

Fisches, Isaac (Maler) & Ehinger, Gabriel (Stecher).
Augsburg. 1705. J.M.Roth - Augsburgisches Friedens - Gedächtnüs Die „ Augsburger Friedensgemälde „ sind jährlich erscheinende Einblattdrucke mit erläuterndem Text, die an den Westfälischen Frieden von 1648 erinnern sollten. Die Initiative dazu ist von der evangelischen Barfüßergemeinde ausgegangen. Zwischen 1651 und 1789 erschienen insgesamt 138 Blätter mit Kupferstichen unter Beteiligung von 55 Künstlern als Zeichner und Kupferstecher; allein für das Jahr 1653 ist kein Kupferstich, sondern nur ein Gebet gedruckt worden. „ Die Reihe ist somit ein Musterbuch der Augsburger Künstler dieser Zeit". Die Druckplatten wurden von der Barfüßer-Pfarrei aufbewahrt; es folgten immer wieder Nachdrucke, die in Sammelbänden mit eigenem Titel und einer Einführung verlegt wurden. Nach der Herausgabe im Jubiläumsjahr 1748 folgten bis 1789 noch 41 Jahrgänge. Sämtliche Jahrgänge wurden 1790 ein letztes Mal mit neuem Titel versehen herausgegeben. Lit.: Seitz, Augsburg. Anhand der großen Auswahl der gezeigten Blätter, an der teils bedeutende Stecher und Zeichner der Augsburger Schule beteiligt waren, lässt sich die Stielentwicklung des Augsburger Kupferstichs vom Hoch- über den Spätbarock bis zum Rokoko ( etwa ab 1740 ) verfolgen; die letzten Stiche zeigen sogar frühklassizischtischen Stil. - In leuchtenden Farben kolorierter Kupferstich. Sprache: Deutsch Kolorierter Kupferstich. 45 x 31 cm. mit dem Text.

ALLARD, Carel (1648-1709)
Amsterdam: [circa 1705]. Copper-engraved maps, with original outline colour, in very good condition. 21 1/4 x 25 1/4 inches. A superb set of maps the World and Continents by the eminent Dutch cartographer Allard's World map, Planisphærium Terrestre, sive Terrarum Orbis, represents a dramatic departure from the classical Dutch tradition and prefigures and influences the great age of Enlightenment cartography that flourished in Germany and the Netherlands. In the place of the conventional allegorical personifications, he surrounds his double hemispheres with twelve additional spheres, each depicting an aspect of the Earth purely as an object of scientific inquiry. Recentissima Novi Orbis Sive Americae Septentrionalis et Meridionalis Tabula is Allard's very handsome map of North and South America. Benefiting from late 17th century French maps of the two continents, it shows all five Great Lakes and a well-delineated Mississippi River. An inset in the lower-left corner depicts what was then known of New Zealand. The cartouche is especially attractive, inhabited by exotic animals and scenes relating to mankind's eternal search for gold. Accuratissima Europae Tabula, Multis locis correcta, et Nuperimè edita is Allard's highly detailed map of Europe. The map of Africa, Novissima et Perfectissima Africae Tabula, is beautifully coloured and features a black cherub riding a lion, while a regal woman, personifying Africa, beholds the scene. Exactissima Asiae Delineatio is partially based on the large-scale maps of northeastern Europe prepared by D. Nicolai Witsen (1641 … [Click Below for Full Description]
