        Dextra sors docendi & discendi.

      Seu ludus literarius. Quo tirones & juvenes, ex script. s. & opt. auctorum selectissimis sententiis, brevi temporis spatio, sine anxia cura, una cum lingva latina, græca & ebræa, bonos mores quasi ludendo discent. Cui præmissa est introductio, quæ ludi, & dextre informandi rationem diligenter tradit. Skara, A. Kiellberg, 1708. 8:o. (148),256,267-290,(4) s. Nött nära samtida hfrbd med upphöjda bind och defekt röd titeletikett. Röda snitt. Några smärre fläckar och gamla understrykningar. Lätt solkad i marginalerna. Pappersförlust i marginalen på s. 121, 141 och 289. Skuren in i sidrubrikerna med viss förlust på några ställen, värst på s. 226 och 239. Fuktrand i nedre marginalen på s. 283-86. Liten lagning på s. 290. Deltitelbladet "Ludus literarius major" som ska sitta före s.113 sitter på sin ursprungliga plats bland preliminärbladen. Med J. Papes exlibris. J. Elgströms ex.. Ett av de äldsta Skaratrycken. Variant utan tryckfelslista på s. 112. Ett av förorden är daterat "Brunsbo then 20 januarii åhr 1708", så det är väl möjligt att vissa ark av boken tryckts redan 1707 och sålunda samma år som de små cirkulärskrivelser som räknas som de första Skaratrycken. Enligt Sallander utkom dock Adam Rechenbergs "Lineamenta" före denna. Boken, som var tänkt att "med lust/ och lika som med lek/ lära/ jemte latinen, wackra seder", innehåller 1200 ordspråk, -stäv och sentenser på latin, grekiska, hebreiska och svenska och en stor del av texten finns även i svensk översättning. Arbetet inleds med en uppsats där Swedberg förespråkar nya pedagogiska metoder i skolorna vid bl.a. språkinlärning. Boken avslutas med en psalm och två dikter av författaren. Det är imponerande att tryckeriet i Skara redan från början tryckte med såväl fraktur-, antikva- och kursivstilar samt till och med på grekiska och hebreiska. Alla de uppräknade stilarna finns företrädda i denna bok

        Georgius Dionysius Ehret

      [Nuremberg]: [n.d.]. Mezzotint, on laid paper. Cut to the edge of the image and laid down at an early date. Print size: 15 3/4 x 10 3/8 inches. Mount size: 20 1/2 x 14 inches. An important mezzotint portrait by Johann Jakob Haid, of one of the greatest 18th botanical artists, after an original portrait by Heckell. Johann Jakob Haid came from a German family of artists and printmakers. Haid worked initially with the animal painter Johann Elias Ridinger, but he soon went on to found a well-known publishing house in Augsburg.This portrait is from a series which pictured those most closely involved in the publication of Trew's Plantae Selectae, and was originally bound into that great botanical work. Georg Dionysius Ehret (1708-70) was the son of a Heidelberg gardener, whose predilection for and talent for drawing flowers allowed him to escape from garden labor to a wide circle of aristocratic acquaintance in Germany, Paris and England, where he settled in 1736. He was made a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1757.

        The Life of Guzman d'Alfarache

      London - Printed for R. Bonwick etc., 1708 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Leatherbound volume with nine plates and frontispiece. Volume 1 only, of 2 volumes (so the Spanish Rogue complete but no Celestina). Mateo Alemn y de Enero (1547 c1615) was a Spanish novelist and writer. He graduated at Seville University in 1564, studied later at Salamanca and Alcal, and from 1571 to 1588 held a post in the treasury; in 1594 he was arrested on suspicion of malversation, but was speedily released. In 1599, he published the first part of Guzmn de Alfarache, a celebrated picaresque novel which passed through not less than sixteen editions in five years; a spurious sequel was issued in 1602, but the authentic continuation did not appear until 1604. In 1571 he married, unhappily, Catalina de Espinosa, and was constantly in money difficulties, being imprisoned for debt at Seville at the end of 1602. In 1608, Alemn emigrated to America, and is said to have carried on business as a printer in Mexico. His Ortografa castellana (1609), published in that city, contains ingenious and practical proposals for the reform of Spanish spelling. He is the author of a life (1604) of St. Anthony of Padua, and versions of two odes of Horace bear witness to his taste and metrical accomplishment. His most famous work, however, is Guzmn de Alfarache, which was translated into French in 1600, into Italian in 1606, into German in 1615, into English in 1623 by James Mabbe, and into Latin in 1623. Condition: The volume has been rebacked. The binding is tight and firm. There is some wear to the extremities including slight bumping to the corners with some loss to the leatherand rubbing to the boards. Internally the pages are generally clean and bright with the occasional handling mark and mild water stains to the corners of a few pages. There is a small sticker to the front pastedown. The volume has a pipe smoke aroma. Overall the volume is in very good condition..

Den sista paginerade sidan och de följande opaginerade ngt sotfläckiga och med en del spegeltryck. Eftersättsbladet till en del klistrat mot insidan av bakre pärmen och med en smärre reva i inre marginalen. Med Samuel Älfs namnteckning. Från Ericsberg.. Warmholtz Bibliotheca historica Sueo-Gothica 1225: "Denne tractat har den berömde Didr. von Stade öfversatt, och låtit trycka i Stade 1711". Planschen föreställer en sten funnen på Bråvalla hed. I denna bok får de svenska almanacksutgivarna med sina spådomar och siare som Paracelsus och Nostradamus ordentligt på huden. Magnus Gabriel von Block (1669-1722) hade många strängar på sin lyra, han talade elva språk, var utbildad läkare och en flitig författare. Efter studier i Uppsala och längre utlandsresor, där Block bl.a. lärde känna Leibniz och studerade medicin, utnämndes han till provinsialläkare i Östergötland 1702 och slog sig ned i Norrköping. I flera av sina skrifter bekämpade han vidskepelse och mirakeltro som fortfarande hade ett starkt fäste i Sverige. Lindroth såg Block som en viktig föregångsman till upplysningsidéerna i Sverige. Samuel Älf (1727-99) föddes i Kvillinge socken i Östergötland och inskrevs 18 år gammal som student i Uppsala. Han blev 1753 docent i latin, senare lektor och professor i Linköping där han avslutade sina dagar som domprost. Älfs kunskaper i latin var i samtiden väl kända. Han var medlem av Vitterhetsakademien, Appolini sacra och Utilie dulci och umgicks i de litterära kretsarna kring Hedvig Charlotta Nordenflycht, Creutz och Gyllenborg. Delar av Älfs fina bibliotek skänktes till Linköpings stiftsbibliotek. Övrigt såldes på bokauktion år 1800

        Helleborus

      This subtly splendid watercolor is by Georg Dionysius Ehret (1708-1770), arguably the finest flower painter of the eighteenth-century Europe. This piece, in fine condition with watercolor over traces of pencil, heightened with touches of bodycolor and gum Arabic on vellum, measures 18.25" x 15", framed. The lower portion of the vellum is inscribed in pen and brown ink, lover center: Helleborus Scapo Sub-unifloro Sub-nudo folus oedatis.Lin./True Black Helebore or Christmas Rose. Ehret's work stands as a preeminent accomplishment of European botanical art, and the reasons for this acclaim are immediately evident in the virtuoso draftsmanship and fine, nuanced coloring of this work. Born in Heidelburg to a market gardener, Ehret began his working life as a gardener's apprentice, eventually becoming a chief gardener for the Elector of Heidelburg and the Margrave of Baden, whose prize tulips and hyacinths he painted. Ehret soon moved on to a number of cities across Europe, collecting eminent friends and important patrons as he traveled. Ehret?s list of benefactors included the most brilliant and celebrated natural history enthusiasts of his day, among whom was Dr. Christopher Trew, a wealthy Nuremberg physician who became his lifelong patron, friend and collaborator. From 1750 until Ehret?s death in 1770, he and Trew collaborated on the publication of the important illustrated volumes Plantae Selectae and Hortus Nitidissimus, both of which added to the rising acclaim for the artist's considerable talents as a botanical painter. Also among Ehret's admirers were the Parisian naturalist Bernard de Jussieu and the great Swedish naturalist Linnaeus, and Ehret's illustrations are some of the first works to reflect the Linnaean system of classification. Ehret was one of the first artists to focus on exotic species from across the Atlantic, and his draftsmanship was so fine that his friend and colleague, the great artist/naturalist Mark Catesby, used at least three of the German painter?s botanical illustrations for his seminal Natural History of Carolina, Florida, and the Bahama Islands. For the engraving of the Canada Lily, Catesby copied an earlier watercolor by Ehret of the Martagon, nearly identical to the example in this set. Today, Ehret?s images are widely considered the most desirable to emerge from that monumental publication, and he collaborated with Catesby in other ways, too, in the compilation of the Natural History, offering advice or adding significant elements to Catesby?s initial compositions. Catesby was influenced greatly by Ehret?s accomplished style, especially in the representation of three dimensionality, but the older artist was never able to attain the same high level of meticulous realism and vitality. Ehret, in turn, drew on a number of Catesby?s discoveries and observations in his own work. Unlike Catesby, Ehret was never able to travel to America, but became fascinated with examples of New World flora that he saw in English natural history collections, such as that of Peter Collinson, a friend and patron of both artists. Painted just at the time of the publication of Catesby?s Natural History, these five watercolors are spectacular early representations of American flora. In England, where he eventually settled, Ehret became the only foreigner to be elected a Fellow of the Royal Society. Though Ehret's work is best known through printed illustrations done in collaboration with Trew, even his impressive engravings cannot compare with the vibrancy, color, and detail of the original paintings. Only in his remarkably sensuous and accurate watercolors is the full extent of his mastery and sensitivity clear. Ehret's delicate modulations of tone and shadow bring a vitality to these exquisite original watercolors, belying their ostensibly documentary purpose. His distinctive style transcends scientific illustration, achieving a level of beauty that has rarely been equaled in the history of botanical art.

      Londini: Impensis Henrici Clements, 1708.. Three parts in one volume. [6],57,[1];[2],72;[2],22pp. Quarto. Modern marbled boards, gilt labels, vellum tips. Fine engraved dedicatory frontis and printed title to each part, plus 41 engraved plates (some folding), but in spite of a European bookseller's declaration that it has been collated and is complete, wanting the portrait and one large folding plate. Occasional light foxing and scattered light tanning, a few minor isolated spots, lower edge of third frontis shaved very slightly, plates XII-XIV in part II bound slightly out of sequence; otherwise a very good, crisp copy. First edition. Although each part is separately paginated and has its own register, the parts are customarily found conjoined. A significant account of the Swiss scientist/naturalist's surveys of the Alps, dedicated to the Royal Society. The execution of the fine plates was accomplished partially at the expense of various fellows of the Society, including Sir Isaac Newton, whose imprimatur appears in the cutline beneath each frontispiece. Similar credits to other members accompany some of the other plates. An expanded account of his travels, including the essentials from this work, appeared in four volumes in Leyden in 1723. In the years leading up to his death, Scheuchzer expended considerable energy on his mammoth, and profusely illustrated PHYSIQUE SACRÉE (1731- 5), endeavoring to reconcile his observations as a scientist with Biblical accounts.

        [The Southern Celestial Hemisphere superimposed over the Terrestial Sphere] Hæmisphærium Stellatum Australe Æquali Sphærarum Proportione

      Amsterdam: G. Valk & P. Schenk, 1708. Copper-engraved celestial map, with full original colour. 19 3/4 x 22 3/4 inches. One of the finest and most highly decorative celestial charts ever produced. This artistically virtuous composition presents a view of the constellations of the Southern celestial hemisphere, as considered by Ancient Greek custom, superimposed on the southern portion of the western hemisphere, including Terra Australis, a large southern polar continent. It is from the Harmonia Macrocosmica seu Atlas Universalis et Novus (Harmonious Universe or New and Universal Atlas) by Andreas Cellarius, the finest celestial atlas ever produced. According to classical astronomy, championed by Aristotle and Ptolemy, the stars were mounted on a huge, transparent crystal sphere that was part of a geocentric system, in which all of the stars and planets rotated around the Earth.Cellarius's star-chart demonstrates three separate ideas about the motions of the spheres, longitude and the influences of the stars. It is a beautiful image, timeless in the abstract harmony of colour, shape and composition, and also a record of the restless search for cosmic understanding.The present image was originally engraved in 1660 by Jan Janssonius, during the great era of Dutch map-making, a period that saw perfection in the art of representing scientific ideas in graphic form by means of engraving. It was reprinted by Janssonius in 1661, and again in 1708 by Gerard Valk and Petrus Schenk, who added their names to the plates. Andreas Cellarius was born in about 1596 in Neuhausen, a small town near Worms in the Rhine-Hesse region of Germany. From 1625 to 1637 Cellarius worked as a schoolmaster in Amsterdam and The Hague, and in 1637 moved to Hoorn, where he was appointed as headmaster or rector of the Latin School. He published a number of works during his lifetime, but the last and greatest was the Harmonia Macrocosmica. Cellarius resigned from his post as headmaster in early 1665 and died in Hoorn in November of the same year. Koeman, Atlantes Neerlandici, Cel. 3.

        Campanula. Ink and watercolor drawing with autograph manuscript caption

      No Dust Jacket. Haller, Albrecht (1708-77). Campanula. Ink and watercolor drawing with autograph manuscript caption. N.p., n.d. 312 x 202 mm. Small pin-holes in left margin and lower right corner, a few tiny marginal tears, remains of mounting tabs on verso. Inscription in French on the verso in an unidentified hand identifying the drawing as by Haller. An original botanical drawing by the great Swiss scientist Haller, who made fundamental contributions to botany as well as to anatomy and physiology. In an effort to create "a complete, encyclopedic science of Swiss flora" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography), Haller published a major treatise on the subject, Historia stirpium indigenarum Helvetiae inchoate (1768), and amassed an herbarium of Swiss plants that is still used today. He corresponded with Linnaeus on the problem of nomenclature, seeking an alternative to Linnaus's binary nomenclature and sexual system of classification. Haller's drawing is of a species of campanula (bellflower). His caption, written in Latin, reads: "CAMPANULA foliis cordato-lanceolatis, caule simplicissimo, foliis cordatis floribus secundis sparsis maxima foliis latissimis. CB.(?)" The words "foliis cordatis" have been crossed out and corrected in another hand to "C. latifolia." The unidentified French inscription on the verso reads: "Cette plante est dessin?t colori?ar le grande Haller, ainsi que l'?iture est de sa main, verifi?par Mr. le Dr. Coindet qui a plusieurs autographes de Mr. Haller" [This plant was drawn and colored by the great Haller, and the writing is in his hand, verified by Dr. Coindet who has several autographs of Haller].
