SCHEUCHZER, J.J.
Londini, H. Clements, 1708. 3 parts (bound in 1 volume). 4to (226 x 175mm). pp. (4), (2), 57, (1); (2), 72; (2), 22, with 1 engraved portrait (of Scheuchzer), 3 engraved frontispieces and 41 (2 folded & 1 partly coloured) engraved plates. Contemporary calf, spine with later rebacking. First edition, which was published at the expense of the Royal Society. It is interesting for its connection with Sir Isaac Newton - the frontispieces to the three parts having been printed at his expense. Johan Jacob Scheuchzer (1672-1733; physician and scientist in Zurich) was the first to travel in Switzerland with mathematical and physical instruments. From 1702 onwards he travelled in the Alps year for year. The results have been published in the above work, the first scientific research papers dealing with natural history, palaeontology, physics and glaciology - a science, which was established by him. The finely engraved plates of the work (all in clear and strong impressions) depict plants, machinery, watercourses, alpine walkways, minerals, etc. An important classic, containing "fascinating details of the mountain journeys that Scheuchzer made all over Switzerland including his thoughts on the movement of glaciers" (Hoover 718). There is a general title to the book and part titles to the three parts. Ward & Carozzi 1966.

LANG(E), C.N.
Venetiis, J. Tomasini/ Lucerne, H.G. Hautt & J.J. Halter, 1708. 4to. pp. (28), 165, (1, blank), with a beautiful engraved frontispiece and 54 engraved plates. Contemporary calf, spine with 5 raised bands. Hoover 505; Ward & Carozzi 1321. A very scarce work on the minerals and fossils of Switzerland. In 1735 a small supplement with 10 pages and 1 plate was published. Lang was one of the last authors who believed in the direct origin of the fossils in the rocks and particularly argued against the conception of the diluvialists that fossils were animals destroyed by the Flood. "Lang's fossil descriptions were used and his theories discussed by Beringer, and Lang is said to have been a colleague of Scheuchzer. Yet the closeness of the relationship with Scheuchzer is open to question since the latter was a diluvialist" (D.S.B. VIII, p. 4). The beautifully engraved frontispiece drawn by Ambrosius Besutius and engraved by Paulus Blancus shows a geological cabinet, containing minerals and fossils. "The physician and senator Karl Lang (1670-1741) established his 'Museum Lucernense Langianum', in Lucerne; it contained mostly minerals and fossils. In 1858 it was purchased by the Natural History Museum of Lucerne" (Wilson. The History of Mineral Collecting p. 119). The plates show minerals, fossil plants, fishes, a human skeleton, and shells. A good copy.

[King, William]
London: Printed for Bernard Lintott at the Cross-Keys between the two Temple Gates in Fleet-Street, 1708. Octavo, 160 pages. First authorized version [Cagle, citing Foxon, indicates an unauthorized folio edition published in 1707]. The book consists of letters to Dr. Lister and others, followed by parallel editions of Horace's Art of Poetry, and King's Art of Cookery. The poem is the author's satire on Lister's translation of Apicius. The author himself became a target for this work. Swift referred to him as a "poor starving wit", and Elizabeth Pennell used Pope's line to describe his verse as written "in a tavern three hours after he could not speak." Near fine in blind and gilt-stamped burgundy cloth. With the bookplate of Pamela Lister, descendant of Dr. Lister, subject of the author's ridicule. [Bitting, page 260; Cagle 794; Maclean, page 84; Oxford, page 51; Pennell, page 142-3].

Mateo Aleman
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.

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.

Georg Dionysius Ehret
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 natur … [Click Below for Full Description]

Scheuchzer, Johann Jakob:
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.

CELLARIUS, Andreas (c.1596-1665)
[Amsterdam: G.Valck & P.Schenk, 1708. Copper-engraved celestial map, with full original colour. Excellent condition. One of the finest and most highly decorative celestial charts ever produced, from the Valk & Schenck edition of Cellarius This artistically virtuous composition represents a view of the sky of the Southern Hemisphere as considered by Ancient Greek custom, forming part of 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 part of a divine system in which all of the stars and planets rotated around the Earth. In this chart, the figures of the zodiac form a circle within which are the constellations of the Southern sky, including Orion, Hydra, and the Southern Cross, all represented by lively Baroque figures. The present image by Cellarius was created during the great era of Dutch map-making, a period that saw the perfection of the art of representing scientific ideas in graphic form by means of engraving. It was first printed by Janssonius in 1660, and reprinted in 1661. In 1708, Gerard Valck and Petrus Schenk, made their own edition, adding 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 appoi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ehret, Georg Dionysius (1708-1770)
These subtly splendid watercolors are by Georg Dionysius Ehret (1708-1770), arguably the finest flower painter of the eighteenth- century Europe. 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 these works. 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. His 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 gr … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bayle, Pierre.
London: Printed for J. Morphew… 1708 First edition in English of the first important work by Pierre Bayle, which was first published anonymously in 1682 as Pensées diverses sur la comète de 1680. Contemporary calf, gilt spines with morocco labels, edges sprinkled red. . Two volumes, octavo. Corners, joints rubbed, both free endpapers with tears along the edges. A good, clean copy. Bayle (1647-1706), was the most influential skeptic of his day. The present work appeared while he was professor of philosophy and history at the Protestant academy of Rotterdam. It discusses the many superstitions that were brought to light by the reappearance of Halley's Comet in 1680. He makes a detailed study of all the facts relating to comets and concludes that there was no mystery about such phenomena, which are bound to the normal laws of nature. He goes on to discuss astrology, demonology, magic, the cabbala, which he also condemns. He also concludes that morality is independent of religion, and his doctrine of toleration is chiefly set forth in this work. The original edition was banned in France.

Johann Jacob Scheuchzer
L'autore, Zurich Zurigo, 1708. Prima edizione in tedesco del trattato sull'origine fossile dei pesci di Scheuchzer. In-8°, ma le pagine di testo sono montate su fogli formato in folio, pp. 8, e 5 tavole incise all'acquaforte, di cui una grande ripiegata e quattro a doppia pagina. L'autore delle incisioni è J. Hen. Hubert, e i pezzi ritratti hanno didascalie in latino e indicano la provenienza dei reperti, la maggior parte dal Museo Scheuchzeriano, alcuni dal Museo Valkeneriano. Le tavole hanno una straordinaria finezza esecutiva e oggettività nel ritrarre i fossili. Il testo contiene un'introduzione e la spiegazione dettagliata delle tavole, con parti in latino. Legatura in cartonato. In questo trattato scientifico Scheuchzer (1672-1733), uno dei più grandi scienziati svizzeri, considerato il padre della paleontologia europea e della paleobotanica, sostiene l'origine organica di questi animali fossili, e quindi il fatto di essere stati "testimoni" del Diluvio Universale, fornendo un importante contributo anche alla geologia. La collezione che l'autore mise insieme a partire dal 1690 divenne ben presto molto nota in Svizzera. paleobotany paleontology geology science fossils switzerland fishes ittica paleontologia paleobotanica fossili geologia scienze museum collection natural history
