         Voyages et Avantures de Jaques Massé

      Bordeaux: James l'Aveugle, 1710. First edition. An important imaginary voyage to Australia: a 'landmark' in the development of the French voyage novel (Atkinson), in its original full calf decorated binding. A Robinsonade account, which predates Defoe. It is complete with the ship wreck, exploration, conflict with local inhabitants, stand off and final rescue by a passing ship. It is a reasonable representation of the Australian continent and its challenges, along with a realistic estimation of the importance of mining and irrigation to Australia that "foreshadow what has actually come to pass in modern Australia." (Friederich) The title page is falsely dated 1710. In his deep analyses of Tyssot de Patot and his publications, Aubrey Rosenberg has concluded that this 1710 printing, with the armillary sphere device on the title page with the base pointing to the left, is indeed the first edition, and was published between 1714 and 1718. "Robinson Crusoe" first appeared in 1719. 12mo, (viii), 508pp. Bound in the original full brown calf binding, gilt spine in 6 compartments, raised bands, gilt device decoration on spine and outer dentelles. Bookplate of Sir John Dashwood King on the inside front pastedown. Rosenberg "A" Gove, 217-219; Cioranescu 62587; Barbier IV, 1103; Atkinson, 'The Extraordinary Voyage in French Literature', p. 70; Rosenberg, pp. 84-5. A handsome copy in its original binding.

         HISTORIA DE LOS MUY NOBLES, y Esforzados Cavalleros Tablante de Ricamonte, y Jofre, Hijo del Conde Donasson. Compuesta por el Varon Felipe Camus.

      En Valladolid, en la imprenta de la Viuda de Joseph de Rueda, 1710. - in-12. 152pp. Plein vélin souple du temps, titre manuscrit au dos, traces de liens. Célèbre roman de chevalerie initialement paru en 1513 et dont les éditions anciennes sont toutes introuvables et précieuses. Cette adaptation espagnole du roman provençal de Jaufré, elle-même inspirée d'une version française donnée par Philippe Camus, connut un grand succès en Espagne tout au long du 16e siècle. La rareté des éditions anciennes est telle que même la riche bibliothèque de Salvá ne possédait pas d'édition antérieure à celle-ci, également très rare. Cette édition de colportage porte sur le titre une vignette gravée sur bois représentant un chevalier en armure brandissant une lance, identique à celle qui figure notamment sur les premières éditions valenciennes de Don Quichotte de 1606 et 1616. Petite tache d'encre ancienne sur le titre. Quelques rousseurs. Très bon exemplaire dans son vélin souple d'origine. Palau, 326183 (qui ne cite que l'exemplaire de la Biblioteca Nacional de Madrid et celui vendu 100 pesetas par Vindel en 1929).

         Historia medicinae, In qua, Si non omnia, pleraque saltem, Medicorum ratiocinia, dogmata, hypotheses, sectae, &c. quae ab exordio medicinae usque ad nostra tempora inclaruerunt, pertractantur.

      Joannes Wolters 1710 - First edition. Octavo (overall 210 mm x 130 mm, the pages 197 x 118 mm). Contemporary full vellum over boards, tan calf title-piece on spine gilt-lettered within gilt rule and palmette roll, all edges cut and sprinkled red, green and gold silk headbands and marker ribbon. Engraved frontispiece of “Ioannis Conradi Barscusen Symposiaca” by D. Coster after Van Wyck, title in red and black with woodcut vignette, woodcut headpieces to dedication and first dialogue, a few decorated opening initials. Collates [18], 632, [36] pp., complete: frontispiece, *7, **2, A8 - Ss8, Tt6; [1 l. (binder’s blank)], 1 l. (frontispiece verso), 1 l. (title), 3 ll. (dedication), 3 ll. (preface), 1 l. (expostulatory poem), 2 ll. (contents and quotation from Augustine, de Civitate Dei), pp. [1] – 610 (XIX Dialogi), 610 – 632 (Oratio de Nepenthe), 18 ll. (index, with “addenda & menda” on last 2 pp.), [1 l. (binder’s blank)]. Front cover tips slightly bumped, spine ends slightly compressed, minor spotting on covers, separation of pastedowns from board at lower 25 mm of front gutter and upper 25 mm of rear gutter, repaired loss on fore-edge of front blank, small brown spot on frontispiece offsetting onto upper framing line of title vignette, an unusually fine copy notwithstanding these overall negligible faults, bright, tight and remarkably unblemished considering its age. The frontispiece of this volume, inscribed “D.Coster f. t Van Wyck Deli.” for the engraver and illustrator David Coster (1686-1752) after the Haarlem painter Thomas [Van] Wyck (1616-1677), depicts a wreathed Hippocrates with the Staff of Asclepius leading a symposium of five apparently cloned savants seated around a table. These figures handle, respectively, a scalpel and skeleton, an armillary sphere, a retort and long-necked flask (erupting fire?) and geometrical tools; the center foreground figure sits on a stool carved with hexagrams, astride astrological charts on the ground. The figures in this “Ioannis Conradi Barscusen Symposiaca” may be the manifestations of Barchusen’s philosophy cloned into one person, embodying Barchusen’s own evolution as a seminal figure in the study of chemistry as a branch of natural philosophy. For Barchusen iatrochemistry as curative medicine was a part of an experimental natural philosophy which predated that of Boerhaave at Leyden by several years. The thrust of Dialogi XVI through XIX, the last quarter of the book, is on the seventeenth century, mostly iatrochemical progression, with, nevertheless, recognition of the impact of the anatomists, Cartesians and mechanical physicists. At the outset of his Praefatio Barchusen extols among his predecessors Daniel Le Clerc (“unicum Dan. Clericum, Virum consummatae eruditionis”), the doctor of Geneva often deemed the father of modern medical history. In fact, Le Clerc’s first edition in 1696 of his Histoire de la Médecine extends only to Galen, and the contemporary anatomical and physiological writings surveyed in his Bibliotheca anatomica (1685 and 1699, with Jean-Jacques Manget) became part of Le Clerc’s revised and expanded Histoire only in 1723. Of the histories preceding John Freind’s History of Physick (London, 1725-6), Philip Storr could count only Barchusen’s Historia of 1710 as a contemporary historical narrative, not merely a catalogue of biography or bibliography, having the substance of the ensuing accounts of Le Clerc and Freind (“Sir John Freind (1675-1728) M.D. Pioneer Historian of Medicine,” Isis, vol. 27, no. 3 (Nov. 1937), pp. 453-474, at 453-4). This edition, now notably rare both at public sale and in trade, was also issued by Jansonnius van Waesberge and R. et G. Wetstenius of Amsterdam, with variant titles but otherwise apparently identical. No priority of issue has been noted. The present outstanding copy was acquired from Jeremy Norman & Co.

         Sancti Patris Nostri Joannis Chrysostomi Archi-Episcopi Constantinopolitani de Sacerdotio. Libri VI. Accessere Dissertationes Quaedam Prooemiales de Dignitate Sacerdotali, Item S. Chrysostomi Vita e Celebrr. Cavii Historia Literaria Desumpta.

      Edm. Jeffery, 1710. 1st Edition . Hardcover. Good. Bound in full calf. clvii, (11), 301, (3)p. Publisher's catalogue to the rear. ESTC: T172307. The Greek text with Latin translation of St John Chrysostom's 'De Sacerdotio'. Also known as 'On the Priesthood'. Early Christian church text. Cappadocian Fathers. First thus. Includes a life of Chrysostom and dissertations on the Christian priesthood. Contains all six books. "Book I describes the events...which preceded Basil's consecration: also his visit to Crysostom, and Chrysistom's defence against his friend's reproaches. Book II descibes the heavy responsibilities of the priestly office: and shews that while Basil is fitted for that office, Chrysostom is unworthy of holding it. Those who nominated him, instead of resenting his refusal of the honour, may congratulate themselves that he did not bring discredit upon them by accepting it and then proving his unfitness. Book III sets forth the dignity of the priestly office, and the faults of Chrysostom's character, which would have entailed disaster to him and others. The qualities for which we ought to look in a Bishop, and his various duties also described. Book IV shews that the priest, or bishop, must be a stalwart defender of the faith against heretics: and contains an eloquent eulogy of St Paul in regard to his skill in expounding Christian doctrine. Book V emphasizes the need of careful preparation before preaching. Book VI describes the duties of the priest as contrasted with those of a monk. The responsibilities of the priest are shewn to be greater, for the souls of others are in his keeping.The fierce character of the warfare carried on by Satan against mankind is also delineated. The book ends with a promise given by Chrysostom that he will assist Basil by his counsel in fulfilling the duties of his office." - Introduction of 'De Sacerdotio of St. John Chrysostom' edited by John Arthbuthnot Nairn, 1906. Previously owned by Rev. Hugh Scott Charles, with his ink inscription to the front free endpaper, dated 1901. Condition: Good due to joints. Joints starting. Some bumping.

With near Forty Figures of the Magnificent Entertainments at Coronations, Instalment, Balls, Weddings, &c. at Court To which are added, Bills of Fare for Every Season in the Year.

      London: 'Printed for Abel Roper, and sold by John Morphew', 1710. - 8vo (174 x 104mm), pp. [16 (half-title, blank, title, blank, preface, contents, illustrations)], 127, [1 (blank)], [12 (bills of fare)], [4 (publisher's advertisements)]; 34 (of 35) engraved plates with bills of fare, of which 30 folding; some light marking, some plates with short tears (occasional old repairs), or cropped, sometimes cutting along folds, half-title partially detached, lacking plate opposite p. 35; contemporary British Cambridge-panelled calf, boards with blind-ruled panels with floral cornerpieces, spine in 6 compartments between raised bands with blind double rules, traces of sealing wax on pastedowns; lacking free endpapers, rubbed and scuffed causing some losses, joints cracked, old repairs at spine-ends, lacking endpapers, otherwise a very good copy; provenance: Christopher Hogwood.First edition, Roper and Morphew issue (another issue of the first edition was published in London by Maurice Atkins in the same year). Patrick Lamb (c. 1650-1708/9) began his career in the royal household as a young servant in the pastry. Following his appointments as master cook to the queen consort and sergeant of his majesty's pastry in ordinary in 1677, he was finally, in 1683, promoted to master cook to the monarch and held the position until the end of his life, serving King James II, King William III and Queen Mary, and Queen Anne.'His services as a royal cook encompassed the provision of prepared dishes for daily and extraordinary consumption by the monarch and his guests at table. He also undertook provisioning contracts for the pastry and kitchen departments of the household, supplying commodities such as flour, eggs, and condiments. Lamb appears to have continued to hold his father's privileges in purveying wine, spirits, and tobacco at the court, revealed in a royal warrant of January 1683' (ODNB), and his skills were particularly effectively shown in special events such as coronations, weddings, and other official occasions. 'Most spectacular of all were his arrangements for the coronation feasts of James II in 1685, William and Mary in 1689, and Anne in 1702, recorded in extensive detail in the lord steward's accounts for those years. The 1689 coronation cost £4931 to stage, and Lamb was presented with £100 for his pains in its planning' (ibid.) – these feasts and banquets provide the foundation of Lamb's successful posthumous book, Royal Cookery.'It was not long before Royal Cookery set the fashion in culinary affairs for those who could afford to follow his extravagant advice. The chefs in charge of the kitchens of the wealthiest aristocrats and landowners in the early part of the eighteenth century were soon designating their dishes for the larger banquets as being "after Queen Anne's fashion"' (Quayle, p. 63). Lamb's recipes include one of the earliest to make use of the newly created champagne wine. 'Patrick Lambe [sic] was the foremost exponent of haute cuisine [ ]. By the time of his death in 1709 he had more than earned the title of "King of Royal Cooks"' (ibid., p. 65).Bitting, p. 271; ESTC T91554; Lehmann pp. 434-435; Maclean p. 88; Oxford, pp. 52-53; Simon, BG 939 (note); Vicaire col. 490 (note); cf.: Cagle 89 (Atkins issue, lacking half-title); Pennell p. 144 (Atkins issue, imperfect).

         Historiae Societatis Jesu. Pars quinta, tomus posterior ab anno Christi MDXCI ad MDCXVI

      Romae: Typographia Georgii Plachi, 1710. [8], 974 pagine. 37x25 cm.Bellissima rilegatura settecentesca in pelle di scrofa con impressioni a secco, leggermente scurita e con abrasioni diffuse. Due dei quattro fermagli originali presenti sul piatto anteriore. Timbro di biblioteca estinta sul frontespizio. Lievi bruniture e alcune fioriture all'interno. [M211]L'opera si riferisce agli anni che vanno dal 1591 al 1616 e riguarda l'operato dei Gesuiti in Europa (Francia, Italia, Transilvania, Inghilterra, Scozia, Irlanda) nonché in Cina, India, Giappone, Filippine e Molucche, con alcuni cenni relativi all'Africa e alle Americhe. Di particolare importanza quanto riferito in relazione ai culti cinesi e indiani, circostanza che paradossalmente portò alla messa all'indice dell'opera nel 1722, per aver contraddetto in alcuni passaggi i dettami della bolla papale De ritibus siniensibus che proibiva la divulgazione dei riti cinesi e malabarici. Joseph de Jouvency (Parigi, 1643 - Roma, 1719), gesuita, poeta, filologo e storico, dopo aver insegnato presso il prestigioso liceo Louis-Le-Grand di Parigi, venne chiamato a Roma dai suoi superiori per portare a termine la monumentale storia della Compagnia di Gesù, la cui pubblicazione era stata iniziata da Niccolò Orlandini. Lavorò a questa impresa per circa dieci anni; nel 1710 venne pubblicato questo volume a conclusione di tutta l'opera.

Small woodcut arms of Portugal on title page, woodcut headpiece, five-line woodcut initial, large woodcut tailpiece (vase with flowers). Good to very good condition. 38 pp., (1 blank l.). *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION. Letters full of insults and complaints from the French plenipotentiary, Melchior de Polignac, and the States General of the Dutch Republic, all dated late July 1710. These were part of the rancorous negotiations to end the War of the Spanish Succession. Polignac famously twitted the Dutch that French and Spanish treaty negotiations with the Allies (Great Britain, Savoy, Austria, Habsburg Empire, Dutch Republic) were de vous, chez vous, sans vous: about you, in your country, but without you. The Dutch were particularly concerned about the fate of the Spanish Netherlands, which ended up in control of the Austrians.The War of the Spanish Succession (1701-1714) was ended by a series of treaties: Utrecht in 1713, Rastatt in 1714, Baden in 1714. Many overseas possessions of the nations concerned were involved, including the Amazon River basin, Colonia do Sacramento in Uruguay, and Canada. As a result of these treaties, the idea of a ?balance of power? (a very new concept) became a significant factor in European politics.*** Not in Innocêncio or Fonseca.

      - [Kyoto 1710, Nagata Chohbei]. Blue original paper covers, title slip, covers rubbed: some blue loss, woodblock printed 1 m. 44.5 x 1 m. 20 cm. accordion folded, very good impres- sion, excellent registry, white hand-made paper,clean solid. *** *** *** . . . AN EARLY BUDDHIST MAP OF THE WORLD . . . ONE OF THE MOST FAMOUS EARLY MAPS . . . A GRAND & DELUXE WALL MAP . *** An excellent fine early example of a woodblock printed map, with Chinese text. This is the first Japanese world map drawn according to Buddhist cosmology & the prototype for all other later Buddhist world maps done in Japan until the end of the 19th century. . *** THE ARTIST AND AUTHOR: Hotan [aka Zuda Rokashi 1654-1728], was the author, artist, editor, scholar and Buddhist priest, he was also the famous founder of Kegonji Buddhist Temple in Kyoto. He was an eminent Buddhist priest and scholar who reconciled new information from the West with Chinese sources. The work is signed "Rokashi," which means "mapmaker and editor." . *** This map gave the hitherto isolated Japanese "a way to see a wider view of the world, but one that they could easily understand.his map was widely acclaimed for the numerous place names he furnished for Indian & Asian areas. very rare in Western maps." Quoted from Namba, see below. . *** The map is centered on Jambudvipa the mythological heart of Buddhist cosmography in India. This very vital spot is noted by a horned animal who's breath is a long spiral of flame emanating from the most sacred & holy Buddhist place on the earth. Europe appears as a string of islands. A land bridge connects China with an unnamed continent to its East, which "must undoubtedly be a reflection of America" in the opinion of the celebrated Japanese scholars. . *** Per Rudolph [see below], on p.92, she states: "This map is descended from a line of Japanese manuscript maps based on the journey of the Chinese priest Xuangzang's pilgrimage to India in search of scriptures. Scholars believe that the maps were originally copied out as a from of devotion--a pilgrimage of the spirit if not the body--and that later versions like this, which includes South America, demonstrate an attempt to reconcile sacred geography with the examples of European cartography that were reaching Japan through Dutch traders and, via China, Jesuit missionaries." . *** WHAT ONE MODERN CARTOGRAPHIC SCHOLAR SAYS: Cartographic scholars Prof. Oda discuss the Northern most Japanese island of Ezo where the Ainu lived is located on this map just slightly South of the mystery continent which is actually American. Africa is a diminutive land mass. To the far West is a small island empire identified as "Country of Western Women" along with other mountainous island kingdoms, likely England, Scotland and Ireland. The map text includes a list of Buddhist Sutras, Chinese histories, literary classics &c. All drawn by Hotan, which "Illustrates the fusion of Buddhist dogma and Western geographical knowledge." See Oda below. . *** PROTYPE MAP: The basic outlines of the map are copied from a Buddhist prototype, the Gotenjiku Zu [MAP OF THE FIVE INDIES], whose characteristic features was the shield-shaped continent of Jambu-dvipa. Jambu-dvipa was the habitable world according to the Buddhist cosmographical view. In this example the sacred lake of Anavatapta can be seen in the centre, from which flow four rivers in a whirlpool pattern. Jambu-dvipa can be equated topographically with the Indian peninsula, Lake Anavatapta symbolizes Lake Manasarovar in the Himalayas and the four rivers represent the Ganges, Oxus, Indus and Tarim. In order to preserve the traditional Buddhist outlines and at the same time incorporate the new knowledge of Western geography, the European and American countries are shown as small islands on the periphery of Jambu-dvipa. Although an amalgam of discordant ideas, the map became one of the most popular and widely circulated works of the day and served as a model for all later Buddhist maps

         De Antiquissima Italorum Sapientia Ex Linguae Latinae Originibus Eruenda Libri Tres.

      Naples: Felicis Mosca,, 1710. Liber Primus Metaphysicus. Duodecimo (163 x 90 mm). Contemporary vellum, spine lettered in manuscript, edges uncut. Contemporary or near-contemporary ownership inscription to title page. Tanning and a little spotting to spine and extremities, slight wear to lower edge of front board, some very minor dampstain to front free endpapers, foxing and a few chips to contents, an excellent copy of this scarce edition. First edition of the Italian philosopher, historian, and jurist's fullest statement of the verum factum principle, the first book in the unrealised series of three outlining his anti-Cartesian philosophical system. The second and third books, Liber Secundus Physicus and Liber Tertius Moralis, were never completed for unknown reasons. Liber Primus Metaphysicus "remained virtually unknown for over a hundred years, although during Vico's lifetime it was widely read in Neapolitan academic circles" (Palmer, p. x). It was not translated from the Latin into Italian until 1816, and it was only reprinted in 1828. Vico's writings gained popularity during the nineteenth century, and his impact on the modern philosophy of history, culture, and mythology cannot be understated. Marx cites Vico in Das Kapital and Trotsky quotes him on the first page of his History of the Russian Revolution; Coleridge and Yeats were enthusiastic disseminators of Vichian ideas; and Joyce composed Finnegans Wake using Vico's four-part cyclical theory of civilisation. Liber Primus Metaphysicus contains the first printing of Vico's Latin aphorism "verum esse ipsum factum" ("the true is the made") for which he would become famous. The 1710 edition is extremely rare, and there is only one previous auction record from 2008 in which it was sold bound with two other works.

         Circulus anatomico-physiologicus seu oeconomia corporis animalis hoc est cogitata functinoum animalium potissimarum formalitatem et causas concernentia accesserunt dissertationes physiologicae.

      Lipsiae, J.F. Gleditsch, 1710, 4, (7), 672, (16) angebunden, jedoch ohne Titelbatt: De Officio Medici Duplici, Clinici nimirum ac Forensis, 1704, 685, (28) pp., Pergamenteinband der Zeit feines Exemplar. Letzte Ausgabe des zuerst 1680 erschienenes Hauptwerk Bohns, einem der "hervorragendsten Ärzte aller Zeiten ... Sein Ruhm gipfelt darin, die große Wichtigkeit des Experimentes nach der physikalischen, wie chemischen und neurologischen Seite hin (somit also über Harvey und Borelli weit hinausgehend) nachgewiesen und die Einführung der Experimentalphysiologie eingeleitet zu haben. Seine physiologischen Experimente, gestützt auf tüchtige chemische und physikalische Kenntnisse, mussten ihn notwendig dazu führen, ein begeisterter Anhänger Harveys zu werden, die Fehler der Chemiatrie, besonders in deren Ausartungen, klar zu durchschauen und dadurch ihre Macht zu stürzen". Johannes Bohn (1640-1718), "wurde als Sohn eines wohlhabenden Kaufmannes zu Leipzig geboren, genoss eine sorgfältige Erziehung und studierte in Leipzig Medicin. Im Jahre 1663 trat er eine Studienreise durch Deutschland, Dänemark, Holland, England und Frankreich an, von der er 1665 nach Leipzig zurückkehrte, worauf er dort noch im selben Jahre promovierte. Er widmete sich der akademischen Carrière, wurde 1668 zum Professor der Anatomie, 1690 zum Stadtphysikus ernannt, erhielt 1691 die Professur der praktischen Medicin, bekleidete von 1699 das Ehrenamt eines Decanus perpetuus der medicinischen Facultät und starb 1718. Bohn gehört zu den hervorragendsten Aerzten aller Zeiten, ausgezeichnet duch vielseitige Kenntnisse, vortreffliches Judicum und liebenswürdige Bescheidenheit. Neben seinen anderen Werken schrieb er zwei "grundlegende, ja classiche Werke über gerichtliche Medicin, die noch jetzt geschätzt werden." Max Salomon, Hirsch I, p.512f. Im Gegensatz zu den vitalistischen Ansichten der Zeit war Bohn der Auffassung, dass die Reflextätigkeit der Nerven rein materiell und mechanisch zu deuten sei. Besondere Verdienste erwarb er sich um die Lehre von der Verdauung und der Zeugung. Sein Hauptwerk "ist überhaupt sehr geeignet, den Zustand der Physiologie seiner Zeit kennenzulernen" Haeser II, p.304 Johann Bohn "experimented on the decapitated frog, declaring the reflex phenomena to be entirely material and mechanical, the general view of the time being that "vital spirits" were present in the nerve -fluid. Bohn showed that the nerves do not contain a "nerve juice"." Garrison & Morton "The strongly speculative ideas of the iatrochemists came under attack early, especially by the German physician and chemist Johannes Bohn (1640-1718), the anatomical prosector at Leipzig, he accepted the need for chemical explanations, especially concerning the digestive processes. He postulated, for example, that the saliva prepared the foodstuffs for their gastric digestion. For Bohn, the saliva's watery portion extracted salty particles from the food, while the oily and spiritual salivary components combined with the sulphurous parts of the nutriment. The entire digestive process consisted of the disintegration of the ingested material into fine atoms. For Bohn the pancreatic juice did not appear to boil when combined with alkali and was thus not acid. Moreover, he denied that the bile was of alkaline nature and secreted from the walls of the gallbladder. He correctly deduced that the liver was the real source of bile and also refuted the existence of a nervous fluid circulating in the nerves. Bohn's ideas reflected the influence of both the English physician Thomas Willis (1621-1675) and the Italian anatomist Marcello Malpighi (1628-1694). He was one of the most important experimental physiologists before Haller, expressing more sympathy for iatrophysics and atomism than iatrochemistry. Bohn's critique, however, was still only tentative because of a lack of proper methods of investigation." Karl E.Rothschuh, Hist. of Physiology, p.62 Blake 56 Garrison & Morton No.1355 (1st.Ed.1686).

         Institutiones medicae. Cum praefatione nova de studio medicodifficili, sed jucundo Johannis Philippi Ph. Burggravii.

      Francoforti ad. Moenum, Georgii Heinrici Oerhlingii, 1710, 12, (24), 257, (3), pp., Pappband d.Zt.: minimal fleckig. Rare first edition published in Germany, first unauthorized edition, second published in general!"The lectures which Boerhaave gave the first on June 23, 1701, were called : Institutiones Medicae. The book bearing this title is based on these lectures. From the prolegomena of the second edition of this book we see that Boerhaave understood by Institutiones Medicae the medical doctrine, consisting of 5 parts : a. physiologyb. pathologyc. semeioticad. hygienee. therapeutics. Physiology, pathology and therapeutics make up a whole. Perhaps it would be better to say they were not yet separated. This was no longer the case a century later. Virchow wrote in 1858 1) : ,,Es gibt bekanntlich eine Zeit, wo die Physiologie und Pathologie noch nicht getrennt waren. Wenn man die Institutiones Medicae [von Boerhaave] liest, so sieht man, daß das ein Werk aus einem Guß ist, und der große Meister konnte wohl sagen: Qui haberet perfecte intellectas omnes conditiones requisitas ad actiones, ille perspiceret clare defectum conditionis ex cognito morbo, et rursus bene caperet ex cognito defectu naturam morbi inde necessario sequentis". Fulton wrote a study on the influence of this work on modern physiology 2). This is important to a bibliography of Boerhaave for sometimes parts of the book were edited separately or remodelled. As in his funeral oration, the reliable Schultens gives 1707 as the of appearance, probably the book came from press towards the end of that year, but was dated 1708. This corresponds with the date of the preface September 20, 1707." G.A. Lindeboom, Bibliographia Boerhaaviana (1959), pp.27-281) Arch. path. Anat. (1858), XIII, 1.

         Processus Anatomicus, Darinnen gewiesen wird/ wie ein Medicus oder Chirurgicus Die Section eines menschlichen Cörpers/ wenn er solchen/ der Kunst nach/ zerlegen will/ am besten erlernen kan. Hrsg. von M. O.

      Leipzig : Bey Friedrich Landischens Erben, An. 1710, Kl.8, 64 pp., feiner Pappband 2 Blätter mit Eckrestaurationen, feines Exemplar. Selten - Erste und einzige Ausgabe! "Die anatomische Sektion von menschlichen Leichen nach einem ausgearbeiteten Programm in kursähnlichen Lehrveranstaltungen gestatteten es, zielgerichtet anatomische Strukturen kennen zu lernen. Die im 17. Jahrhundert erste nützliche Präparieranweisung ist der 'Culter anatomicus' von Michael Lyser (1626-1659), einem Schüler von Thomas Bartholin (1616-1680). Zu nennen ist auch der im Jahre 1710 veröffentlichte 'Processus anatomicus', nach dem die Präparation des Leichnams in sieben Schritten erfolgte und für folgende 'demonstrationes' genutzt wurde: 1. Haut, Fett, "fleischichte" Haut, "Mäußlein im untern Leibe", Peritoneum, 2. Magen, Netze und Gedärme, 3. Gekröse, Pankreas, Leber und Milz, 4. Nieren, "Harn-Gänge, Harn-Blase, Saamen-Gefässe, Hoden, [die] männlichen Glieder, Geburts-Theile der Weiber". 5. Thorax und dessen äußerliche Teile, 6. Herz, Lunge, Luftröhre, Larynx. Zunge. 7. Kopf und dessen äußere Teile, Gehirn, Augen." Nach Artelt galt "die Herstellung guter Dauerpräparate [...] als eine nicht geringere Leistung als neue anatomische Entdeckungen oder wissenschaftliche anatomische Veröffentlichungen". "Im 18. Jahr hundert hatte sich das anatomische Instrumentarium zur Herstellung von Präparaten weiter vervollständigt. Lanzette, Inzisionsmesser, Bisturi, Skalpell, Beinhaut-Schaber, Meißel, Säge, Elevatorium, Schere, Zangen, Haken, Bohrer, Nadeln und Vergrößerungsgläser gehörten dazu. Sonde, Röhre und Spritze benötigte man für Untersuchungen der Gefäße, zum Aufblasen und Einspritzen von Hohlräumen und Organen sowie Ausführungsgängen. Eiserne und kupferne Kessel dienten zum Kochen von Knochen und anderer "Theile" des Leichnams Fässer und anderes Böttcher-Geschirr zur Mazeration der Knochen. Zur Montage von künstlichen Skeletten setzte man eine Bohrmaschine ein. Irdene, zinnerne und kupferne Gefäße verschiedener Gestalt und Größe dienten u.a. der Zubereitung von Injektionsmassen ein Wärmekasten aus Holz, mit Zinn- und Bleiplatten ausgelegt, benötigte man, um die Leichname in einem Wasserbad zu erwärmen und die Einspritzungen vorzubereiten. Zum Aufblasen von Organen benutzte man einen Blasebalg. Präparategläser verschiedener Gestalt, Höhe und Weite mussten stets vorrätig sein, um z.B. Feuchtpräparate in Weingeist aufbewahren zu können. Sie sollten in der Regel weiß und von schöner Gestalt sein. (vgl. M. O. Processus anatomicus (1710), p.10)."

Procura pues con cuidado no callar un pecado'. - // Curioso y limpio manuscrito de letra apretada escrito en latín entre 1710 y 1712 con las enseñanzas del curso de filosofía según la doctrina de Aristóteles y Santo Tomás tal como se impartía en la Universidad de Valencia, a tenor del inicio de la primera parte (la dialéctica) que reza, h. 1v.: 'Consuetudo est universitatis valentine, quod a ut preludii de Disputatione tradere tironibus, ingenii exercendi.', 'Es costumbre de la Universidad de Valencia, para iniciar a los principiantes en las Disputatione y ejercitar su ingenio.'El manuscrito, sin tachaduras, contiene la Dialéctica, la Lógica (fechada al final en febrero de 1710) y la Metafísica (la parte de las categorías) y está muy decorado con frisos y ornamentos dibujados a imitación de la decoración de los códices medievales, con animales, plantas y seres mitológicos.Es, además, un hermoso ejemplo de una práctica comercial que debía ser habitual. Contiene, intercalados, varios grabados que ofrecen todo el aspecto de ofrecerse por las imprentas para que los estudiantes los incorporasen a sus apuntes, en este caso un proemio, el cuadro de los opuestos y el árbol de Porfirio, de los que algunos (aquí, el Proemio y el cuadro de los opuestos) eran como plantillas a cumplimentar por el estudiante con los textos de su elección.Pese a que en 1646 las constituciones del Estudi general (Universidad) de València ya decían que el rector debía vigilar a algunos catedráticos muy largos y prolijos que leen en dos años y más la materia que es para ser acabada en solo uno, y otros que por querer ser más breves y concisos no solo no pueden leer todo lo que es necesario y propio de la materia, sino que por abreviar dejan de leer las lecciones de viva voz y las dictan apresuradamente palabra por palabra., viendo este manuscrito no puede dejar de imaginarse que tales popósitos todavía no habían tenido éxito. Eso sí, el texto reponde a la instruccion de las Constituciones de lo que debían hacer los 'catedráticos de S. Tomás', dando las lecciones siguiendo el orden propuesto [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Edm. Jeffery 1710 - Bound in full calf. clvii, (11), 301, (3)p. Publisher's catalogue to the rear. ESTC: T172307. The Greek text with Latin translation of St John Chrysostom's 'De Sacerdotio'. Also known as 'On the Priesthood'. Early Christian church text. Cappadocian Fathers. First thus. Includes a life of Chrysostom and dissertations on the Christian priesthood. Contains all six books. "Book I describes the events.which preceded Basil's consecration: also his visit to Crysostom, and Chrysistom's defence against his friend's reproaches. Book II descibes the heavy responsibilities of the priestly office: and shews that while Basil is fitted for that office, Chrysostom is unworthy of holding it. Those who nominated him, instead of resenting his refusal of the honour, may congratulate themselves that he did not bring discredit upon them by accepting it and then proving his unfitness. Book III sets forth the dignity of the priestly office, and the faults of Chrysostom's character, which would have entailed disaster to him and others. The qualities for which we ought to look in a Bishop, and his various duties also described. Book IV shews that the priest, or bishop, must be a stalwart defender of the faith against heretics: and contains an eloquent eulogy of St Paul in regard to his skill in expounding Christian doctrine. Book V emphasizes the need of careful preparation before preaching. Book VI describes the duties of the priest as contrasted with those of a monk. The responsibilities of the priest are shewn to be greater, for the souls of others are in his keeping.The fierce character of the warfare carried on by Satan against mankind is also delineated. The book ends with a promise given by Chrysostom that he will assist Basil by his counsel in fulfilling the duties of his office." - Introduction of 'De Sacerdotio of St. John Chrysostom' edited by John Arthbuthnot Nairn, 1906. Previously owned by Rev. Hugh Scott Charles, with his ink inscription to the front free endpaper, dated 1901. Condition: Good due to joints. Joints starting. Some bumping.
