        ANATOMIA DEL CAVALLO, INFERMITA' ET SUOI RIMEDII. Opera nuova, degna di qualsivoglia Prencipe, & Cavaliere, & molto necessaria à Filosofi, Medici, Cavallerizzi & Marescalchi. Adornata di bellissime Figure, le quali dimostrano tutta l'Anatomia di esso Cavallo. Divisa in due volumi.

      In-4 p., 2 voll. in 1, cartonato rustico coevo (restaur. all?ang. infer. per manc.; risg. rifatti), pp. (4),250; 266; grande marca tipograf. ai due frontesp. Il vol. è molto ben illustr. da 64 xilografie a piena pag. nel t. che raffigurano il cavallo dal punto di vista anatomico. Il primo vol. "in cinque Libri copiosamente dichiara tutte le cose appartenenti alla detta Anatomia", il secondo "in sei Libri tratta pienamente di tutte l'infermità del Cavallo & suoi rimedi". Magnifica opera, una delle pietre miliari della moderna medicina veterinaria, pubblicata per la prima volta a Bologna nel 1598: raggiunse le 15 ristampe nel 1769. Cfr. De Renzi "Storia della medicina in Italia",III,137: "Il Senatore bolognese Carlo Ruini diede la migliore monografia anatomica di quel tempo, e la sua Anatomia del Cavallo è stata, al dire di Cuvier, spogliata da tutti quei che hanno scritto sullo stesso argomento nei secoli XVII e XVIII" - Morton,285: "First book devoted exclusively to the structure of a single species other than man. Besides being one of the foundation-stones of modern veterinary medicine, it contains a description of the lesser circulation. The admirable plates are by some authorities attributed to Leonardo" - Mennessier,II, p. 465 - Nissen,I,3514 - Brunet,IV,1458 - Graesse,VI,191. Prime 73 cc. restaur. all?angolo inf. per manc. (da un max. di cm. 6x6 a 2x3); la tav. I (pp. 133/134), mancante di metà figura (ora riprodotta su carta antica), è stata restaur. in modo eccellente (v. ill.); lieve alone al marg. bianco, ma certam. un buon esemplare con barbe.

        A Paraphrase and Notes on the Epistle of St. Paul to the Romans. + A Paraphrase and Notes on the Epistle of St. Paul to the Ephesians.

      London, Awnsham & John Churchill, 1707. 4to. Bound together in one nice, contemporary full calf Cambridge-style binding. Professionally and neatly rebacked and edges restored. Binding with some overall wear causing darkening of the leather and wear to the blindstamping, but professionally restored as neatly as possible. First title-page with a bit of minor dust-soiling, but otherwise internally nice, clean, and well preserved. Armorial bookplate of George Kenyon to pasted down front end-paper (bookplate cut at edges). 142, (2, - advertisements) pp. + 60 pp.. Rare first editions of Locke's important commentaries on St. Paul's letter to the Romans and to the Ephesians respectively, two important works closely related to his general philosophical and political outlook, and more specifically connected to his work on tolerance."Before his death, Locke wrote instructions for his cousin and heir Peter King regarding certain unpublished works. The first of these posthumous publications to appear was a set of "paraphrase and notes" on the Epistles of St. Paul, the fruits of Locke's biblical studies during his later years and of his disputes with Edwards and Stillingfleet. The paraphrases of each of the five Epistles were brought out separately between 1705 and 1707, then reissued with a collective title page and an introductory essay in which Locke explained his method of reading and interpreting St. Paul. A paraphrase and notes was frequently reprinted during the eighteenth century and had several imitators." (Locke Bibliography)With his commentaries on the two letters of St. Paul, Locke sets out to bring forth a Christianity that is both reasonable and tolerant. He focuses on the difficulties of interpretation of the letters and criticizes previous interpretations, calling for a new method of interpretation that is based on reasoning. Thus, the present works are of great interest to the study of Locke's philosophy and thought in general and are of paramount importance to the understanding of his thoughts on Christianity.
