        [Oliver Cromwell] Olivarius Cromwell

      Published by Henr. Neuhusius Fris. Pensionarius Worcumensis, circa 1710. Engraving. Printed on laid watermarked paper. In good condition with the exception of two skillfully mended tears across Cromwell's face. Very light crease along middle of image. Sheet has been re-margined with laid paper. Image size: 21 ¾ x 17 inches. 22 ¾ x 17 inches. 25 ½ x 19 5/16 inches. This remarkable engraving is an early portrait of Oliver Cromwell, one of England's most famous leaders. This is a commanding equestrian portrait of Oliver Cromwell with a panoramic view of London stretching out behind him. Published by the celebrated German poet Henricus Neuhusius this image provides a fascinating insight into the dissemination of Cromwell's image across Europe. Cromwell is memorialized in countless portraits by both English and Continental artists, and his image continued to be reproduced in print until the late nineteenth century. This rare engraving is an early example of the pictorial legacy, which Cromwell inspired. Published for a continental market, this striking portrait depicts Cromwell as larger than life; both his horse and his body are massive in proportion to his surroundings, creating a statuesque effect, which is visually compelling. Cromwell's body controls the compositional space of the image making him appear all-powerful, and he hold's the viewer's attention with his resolute gaze. Early portraits of Cromwell, such as this, are seldom seen on the market, making this a true rarity and a fine collector's piece.

        Demonstratio de Deo sive Methodus ad Cognitionem Dei naturalem Brevis ac Demonstrativa. Cui accedunt Epistolae quaedam Miscellaneae. De Animae Natura & Immortalitate, De veritate Religionis Christianae, De Universo, &c

      Title printed in red & black. 4to, cont. calf, panelled in gilt (upper joint a little cracked but strong, one small defect to upper cover), spine gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. London: G. Taylor, 1710. First edition, presentation copy from the author to Thomas Parker (1667-1732), first earl of Macclesfield and lord chancellor, who formed the magnificent library at Shirburn Castle. Raphson (fl. 1689-1712), mathematician and fellow of the Royal Society, has inscribed the free front endpaper: "Viro vere Venerabili Thoma Parkero Equiti Aurato Summo Anglia in Banco Regina Justiciario &c J Raphson." Raphson knew Newton in Cambridge and wrote The History of Fluxions (1715), which served as an apologia for Newton and an exposition of his methods of calculus. He also translated into English Newton's Arithmetica Universalis. Raphson was, amongst the Newtonians, the most fervent defender of the nature of space as a divine attribute. Leibniz owned a copy of this book and critically reviewed it in the Jan.-Feb. 1712 issue of the Acta Eruditorum. Berkeley fiercely attacked this book; he denied space ever possessed any strong ontological status. Fine and handsome copy from the Macclesfield library with bookplate. Title somewhat browned. .

Den första delen beskriver Vaksala och Gamla Uppsala med dess fornminnen och förtecknar bl.a. uppländska lagmän och landshövdingar. Den har svensk och latinsk parallelltext. "Monumenta Ullerakeriensa" behandlar huvudsakligen Uppsala och dess domkyrka och är - sin titel till trots - enbart författad på svenska. Lindroth betonar "Monumenta Ullerakenias" grundlighet och betecknar i synnerhet planscherna som "ovärderliga", då många av domkyrkans inventarier avritades före Uppsalabranden 1702. Arbetet avbildar och beskriver även ett stort antal runstenar av vilka flera idag är försvunna eller skadade. Förarbeten till en planerad fortsättning förvaras i handskrift på Kungliga biblioteket. De flesta planscherna är stuckna av Truls Arwidsson, men även gravyrer av J. Spiegelberg, J. C. Sartorius och enligt Klemming eventuellt även T. Campanius Holm ingår

        Lexicon technicum: Or, an universal English dictionary of arts and sciences. 2 vols., 1704-10

      Dan Brown Tim. Goodwin John Walthoe etc. London: Dan Brown, Tim. Goodwin, John Walthoe [etc.], 1704 -1710. No Dust Jacket. Harris, John (1666?-1719). Lexicon technicum: Or, an universal English dictionary of arts and sciences: Explaining not only the terms of art, but the arts themselves. 2 vols., folio. Unpaginated; collation available on request. Engraved portrait frontispiece by G. White after R. White in Vol. I, 14 engraved plates, text woodcuts. London: Dan Brown, Tim. Goodwin, John Walthoe [etc.], 1704-1710. 320 x 205 mm. Paneled calf ca. 1704-10, rebacked, endpapers renewed. A few plates toned, but a fine copy. Armorial bookplate of John Manley, Esq. in Vol. II. First Edition of the first English dictionary of arts and sciences, and the earliest modern encyclopedia of science. Harris was the first to make the distinction between "word-books" (dictionaries) and "subject-books (encyclopedias), and his Lexicon Technicum is the first English encyclopedia to be arranged in alphabetical order, as opposed to systematic order in the tradition of the medieval encyclopedist, Isidore of Seville. A clergyman educated at Oxford, Harris took an early interest in science, and was elected to the Royal Society in 1696. As a result, he had access to many of the greatest scientific minds in England, and the Lexicon technicum may be the first example of an encyclopedist relying directly on the consultation and help of experts or specialists, such as John Ray and Isaac Newton. In particular Harris relied heavily on the writings of Isaac Newton as a source, quoting lengthy excerpts from them under such headings as "Attraction," "Colour," "Fluxions," "Gravity," "Light," and "Motion." The introduction to Vol. II contains the first printing (in Latin and English) of Newton's "De natura acidorum," his only published work on chemistry; and the articles "Quadrature" and "Curves" give the first English translations of the "Two treatises" from Newton's Opticks. The first edition of volume 2 was published together with the second edition of volume 1. Therefore sets of the first edition of both volumes of Lexicon Technicum are rare on the market.

        Considerazioni ed esperienze intorno al creduto cervello di bue impietrito; Considerazioni ed esperienze intorno all generazione de’vermi nel corpo umano...;

      Nella stamperia del SeminarioEach work with separate title. With 14 folding plates (10 in the first volume, 4 in the second volume). Contemporary vellum in fine condition; from the library of Antonio Pacchioni (1665-1726), famous anatomist and physician. First editions of Vallisnieri's first two books. In the first work, the author describes the brain of an ox, which supposedly contained some curious stones, petrified during the lifetime of the animal. However, he denies that the mass found in the animal's head is actually its brain. We can't tell you exactly what it turned out to be; you have to read the book. The second work is an important treatise in parasitology, with observations on parasites in the human body. He proved that these parasites were not due to spontaneous generation, as then frequently believed, but grew from eggs. Vallisnieri (1661-1730), the famous pupil of Malpighi, was noted as a physician, professor of medicine at the University of Padua, and as a scientific investigator. He wrote extensively on embryology, biology, natural history and geology, and did fundamental research in the fields of helminthology and entomology. Pacchioni (1665-1726), a pupil of Malpighi, was a successful physician in Rome and head doctor at the Hospital of San Giovanni in Laterano. He collaborated with Lancisi on the explanatory text of Eustachi's Tabulae anatomicae, but is best known for his Dissertatio epistolaris de glandulis conglobatis durae meningis humane (Rome, 1705) which describes the arachnoidal granulations and the slight depressions produced by the arachnoid tissue under the dura. Pacchioni's bodies and Pacchioni's depressions were coined from his discoveries.
