        Curiöse chirurgische observationes Worinnen Die raresten Casus, welche in den hiesigen Hospithalern ... vorgefallen und von ihm curieret worden.

      Frankfurt und Leipzig, Rohrlachs Wittw., 1710, 4, 16 Bl., 456 pp., 16 Bl., Pappband der Zeit St.a.Tit. Erste Ausgabe dieser 80 über einen Zeitraum von 38 Jahren gesammelten Operationsbeschreibungen."Der Chirurg Matthäus Gottfried Pur(r)mann (1649 bis 1711) verdankt seinen Platz in der Geschichte der Chirurgie vor allem seinen Lehrbüchern der "Wundarznei" (Chirurgie), in denen er besonders die Versorgung (kriegs-) verletzter Patienten aufgrund seiner Erfahrungen und aufgrund seiner Literaturkenntnis beschrieb. Er operierte unter anderem Trepanationen bei Schädelfrakturen, nahm Repositionen und Schienungen von Frakturen und Luxationen vor und führte auch einige Kaiserschnitte (transperitoneal über einen Unterbauchparamedianschnitt) erfolgreich durch. Vor allem stellte er in seinen Lehrbüchern auch die anatomischen Grundlagen, die Indikationen und die Komplikationen für jeden Eingriff zusammen. Mit Purmann begann in Deutschland die Weiterentwicklung der Chirurgie aus der mittelalterlichen Volksmedizin, mit der Purmann besonders in der Salbenzubereitung für die Wundversorgung noch eng verbunden war, zu einer Erfahrungswissenschaft. Dieser unter anderem von dem Chirurgen Purmann begonnene Weg wurde später von dem Professor für Anatomie und Chirurgie an der Universität Altdorf und später in Helmstedt Lorenz Heister (1683 bis 1758) konsequent weiterverfolgt."

        Considerazioni ed experienze intorno alle generazione de' Vermi ordinari del corpo umano.

Spine with four raised bands, compartments with gilt lines and vignettes, and gilt title.= An important treatise on intestinal worms, which contributed to the spontaneous generation controversy of the 17th century.

In comparison with contemporary scientific thought, Vallisnieri's work has a very modern character. Following Galileo and Francis Bacon, he rejected scholastic knowledge and trusted solely in direct observation and in experiments. A few small spots, but generally clean. The binding is attractive. A very good copy with broad margins. Nissen ZBI, 4219.

        La Babylone demasque'e, ou entretiens de deux dames Hollandoises sur la religion Catholique Romaine, & sur les motifs qui doivent engager a l'embrasser, & a renoncer aux sectes qui lui sont contraires, notament au Calvinisme. Paris, Nicolas Pepie 1727.

      12o, Gebonden in leren band met vergulde versiering op de rug en rood marokijn titelschild. (34) + 269 + (4) pag. Mooi exemplaar. Op schutblad in pen in 18e eeuwse hand 'Melanie Foulque'. C1080."Niet in Cioranescu; 1 ex. in NCC; niet genoemd in Hora Siccama; Barbier I p.375. Onbekend werk van de beruchte schrijfster van de scandaleuze 'Memoires de la famille et de la vie de madame *** '(Den Haag, 1710), het boekje waaraan Hora Siccama in 1905 een opstel wijdde in de Bijdragen voor Vaderlandsche Geschiedenis en Oudheidkunde. De weduwe Van Zoutelande schreef haar memoires in de Maastrichtse gevangenis, waar zij de straf uitzat die haar was opgelegd wegens landverraad. Later week zij uit naar Frankrijk waar zij tot 1737 nog enkele andere boeken het licht deed zien en in het huwelijk trad met de , 523, e ingenieur Boisson. Rond 1705 deed zij met een eerdere echtgenoot, Kapitein Vogler die haar uit de Maastrichtse gevangenis had bevrijd, in Parijs plechtig belijdenis van de , 382, 4, 62, 414, e godsdienst, het onderwerp van 'La Babylone demasque'e'. Dit boekje is opgedragen aan de hertogin van Orleans (door 'votre servante De Zoutelandt') en heeft een approbatie van de 'senseur' van de koning (gedateerd 18-8-1723) en van de curé van St. Gervais van 24 januari 1724. Bovendien staat er een privilege in afgedrukt van de koning (dd. 27-9-1724) en de overdracht van het octrooi aan de boekhandelaar Pepie door 'Boisson' van 20-6-1727. Het boekje bestaat uit een brief van een Hollandse protestantse dame aan mevrouw Van Zoutelande met vragen over haar overgang tot het katholicisme en vijf brieven van mevrouw Van Zoutelande met haar uitvoerige antwoorden. Ze geeft daarin tal van voorbeelden uit het religieuze leven van die dagen en blijkt op de hoogte van het bestaan van groeperingen als de Labadisten en de Armeniërs en geeft blijk van een zekere kennis van de Nederlandse kerkgeschiedenis. In het uitvoerige voorwoord deelt zij iets over zichzelf mee: zij vertaalde de memoires van Jan de Witt uit het Nederlands in het , 523, (P. de la Court, Memoires de Jean de Wit, Den Haag, Van Bulderen, 1709). Ze memoreert de vertaling van een boek over het leven en werk van Cornelis en Jan de Wit (het betreft een vertaling van Emanuel van der Hoevens biografie van de gebroeders die in 1708 in het Nederlands was verschenen en die in 1709 in , 523, verscheen als: Histoire de la vie et de la mort des deux illustres fréres Corneille et Jean de Wit, Utrecht 1709). Ze vertaalde, zo schrijft ze verder, ook reizen naar de Nieuwe Wereld die spoedig zullen uitkomen (waarvan wij geen titel konden traceren), evenals diverse werken van Jan van Beverwijck (deze werden in 1730 in twee afzonderlijke delen uitgegeven in Parijs)."

        Map of Louisiana and of the River Mississippi

      John Senex, [c.1710]., London, - Senex's rare map of the Mississippi An important map of Louisiana by John Senexafter Guillaume de L'Isle, and "the best of the early English maps giving particulars of the West" (Kashnor). It marked the beginning of a cartographic 'war' between the French and English as each tried to substantiate their claims in America, eventually decided in the Seven Years' War.Senex's map was "the first detailed map of the Gulf region and the Mississippi, the first printed map to show Texas, the first to show the land routes of earlier centuries -De Soto in 1539-40 and his successor Moscoso in 1542, Cavelier in 1687, Tonty in 1702, and the recent route of Denis in 1713 and 1716" (Tooley). De L'Isle's map had provided some important updates to cartographic knowledge of America including the first accurate representation of the mouth of theMississippi, but it also claimed vast swathes of America for the French.Florida is not even named, but included in Louisiana; he described Carolina as belonging to the French by right and possession; andrestricted the British colonies to the east of the Applachian Mountains. Here, Senex restores Florida to the map,and ignores the French claim to Carolina. New Orleans does notappear either. Heaccurately maps the course of theMississippi River and its tributaries(theRed, Arkansas andMissouriRivers) and shows the Niagara Falls, with a note that they are 600 feet high. Senex also shows Texas for the first timefollowing de L'Isle: Mission de las Teijas is marked. The map is also notable for the detail given of the various Native American nations. The coast of the Gulf of Mexico is ominously marked"Wandering Indians and Man-Eaters". To the North, the"Hurons","Natives of Petnn" and"Nation Neutre" are all marked as"destroyed", the latter by the Iroquois.

Those few remarks of my own which I have made, are but opinions .'. [Preface]. Samuel Carter (bap. 1641-1713), a law reporter and legal writer, was admitted to the Inner Temple in 1665 and called to the bar in 1673. He wrote and published several legal works, his legal researches being facilitated by his appointment in June 1709 as 'library keeper' at the Inner Temple at a salary of £20 p.a., his son, Thomas, providing the surety. William Petyt, sometime treasurer of the Inner Temple (in 1701-2), had left to the Inn on his death in 1707 not only his large collection of manuscripts and ancient documents but also a sum of money to build a new library to house them. By 1709 the new library had been built, and Samuel Carter ('an aged and impecunious barrister'), the new librarian, did the first work of cataloguing Petyt's books and manuscripts. His 1713 draft catalogue is still extant. [Attributes: First Edition]

        CALLIPAEDIAE: OR, THE ART OF GETTING PRETTY CHILDREN

      London: Printed for Bernard Lintott, 1710. First Edition in English. This is an excellent copy of the first English translation of a poem concerning marriage and procreation, complete with the five plates that are lacking in most copies. Written by the French physician and poet Claude Quillet (1602-61) and originally published in Leyden in 1655, this poem contains little in the way of sound medical advice by today's standards. Instead, the author lyrically mixes an array of popular beliefs concerning pregrancy with a liberal sprinkling of allusions to Roman mythology for added poetic effect. In the course of five books, Quillet covers how to choose a beautiful wife, the most advantagous times to "love" (according to the time of day, seasons, and stars), beneficial (and detrimental) practices during pregnancy, and child rearing. Given the racy nature of the subject matter herein, it is unsurprising that some contemporary reviewers found the material inappropriate and even vulgar. The rather lengthy preface attempts to ameliorate these concerns by insisting on the "modestness" of the present translation, and we may speculate whether the index was added to give the guise of a more serious medical work. The amusing etchings, which also rely heavily on mythological imagery, were done by Elisha Kirkall (1682-1742). Foxon posits that these plates may not have ready at the time the text was printed, given how many copies seem to have been bound without them. Although Olidsworth is not named as the translator here, Foxon notes that subsequent editions identify him as such.. 165 x 103 mm. (6 1/2 x 4"). 8 p.l., 72, [8] (ads) pp.Translated by William Olidsworth. First Edition in English. Recent mottled calf, tan spine label with gilt lettering. WITH THE RARE FRONTISPIECE AND FOUR PLATES. Front pastedown with the bookplate of Robert J. Hayhurst. Case 253; Foxon, O-142. Binding near mint, with just a few negligible scratches; small repair to frontispiece (just touching the plate), light stain in gutter of last five leaves, a few pages with a touch of light foxing or soiling in the margins, the occasional minor blemish, otherwise A VERY CLEAN COPY.

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. physiology ; - b. pathology ; - c. semeiotica ; - d. hygiene ; - e. 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.27-28 - - 1) Arch. path. Anat. (1858), XIII, 1.

        Considerazioni ed experienze intorno alle generazione de' Vermi ordinari del corpo umano.

      - Padua, Seminario, 1710. 4to (33.9 x 17.0 cm). [x], 160 pp.; four large, folded engraved plates. 19th century half calf over marbled boards. Spine with four raised bands, compartments with gilt lines and vignettes, and gilt title.l An important treatise on intestinal worms, which contributed to the spontaneous generation controversy of the 17th century. Antonio Vallisneri (1661-1730) was a pupil of Malpighi at Bologna and eventually became professor of practical medicine at Padua. In comparison with contemporary scientific thought, Vallisnieri's work has a very modern character. Following Galileo and Francis Bacon, he rejected scholastic knowledge and trusted solely in direct observation and in experiments. A few small spots, but generally clean. The binding is attractive. A very good copy with broad margins. Nissen ZBI, 4219. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        [American wild turkey].[Northwest Germany?, ca. 1710/20]. Watercolour drawing on 2½ sheets of Imperial laid paper (129 x 57 cm as assembled).

      A life-size watercolour drawing of an American wild turkey hen (Meleagris gallopavo), hanging from a hook by a cord threaded through its nostrils, presumably awaiting the cook's assistants, who would have plucked it. The skilful artist remains unidentified. The drawing itself, from the hook (which bleeds off the paper at the head) to the tips of the claws, measures 126 cm and the turkey measures 110 cm from the tip of its beak to the tip of its tail. Its plumage is predominantly light brown, with black stripes on the back and with the breast and the lower parts of the wings white. It appears to be the best known wild American breed, Meleagris gallopavo silvestris, and is certainly not one of the breeds developed in Europe, but American wild turkeys were brought to Europe frequently from the 16th century on, so that the drawing could have been made in Europe or America. But the turkey remained a luxury item in Europe into the 19th century, so the drawing probably comes from the estate (the kitchen?) of a nobleman.Formerly folded. With a small worm hole in the neck of the turkey and a slightly larger one in the blank paper next to the neck, and an occasional minor tear on the old folds (some professionally reinforced on the back), but otherwise in very good condition. A magnificent ca. 1710/20 watercolour drawing of an American wild turkey, depicted life-size.

      14 S., [1] Bl., 1136, 316 S., [30] Bl Titelbl. in Rot- und Schwarzdr. mit Vign. in tscvhechischer Sprache. Die Cansteinsche Bibelanstalt ist die älteste Bibelgesellschaft der Welt. Sie wurde im Jahr 1710 in Halle (Saale) von Carl Hildebrand Freiherr von Canstein in Zusammenarbeit mit August Hermann Francke gegründet. Ziel war es, dem Bibelmangel in Deutschland, besonders in der ärmeren Bevölkerung, zu begegnen und Bibeln schnell, in hohen Auflagen und zu einem niedrigen Preis zu drucken. Erst die Josephinischen Toleranzpatente ermöglichten Protestanten 1781 und Juden 1782 die freie private Religionsausübung.1781 konstituierten sich die Evangelische Kirche A.B. (auch lutherische Kirche) und die Evangelische Kirche H.B. (auch reformierte Kirche). Vorher konnten im K.k. Österreich legal keine protestantischen Bibeln gedruckt werden. Sie wurden illegal nach Österreich eingeführt und verwendet. Seit 1709 begann man dafür in Halle tschechische evangelische Schriften zu drucken. Ausführlich siehe unter: Zeitschrift für Slawistik. Heft Januar 1959. L. Vajdicka Juraj Petermann und die tschechische hallische Bibel vom Jahre 1766. Die vorliegende Bibel ist nach der Kralitzer Bibel die bedeutenste gedruckte Bibel in tschechischer Sprache und damit auch ein wichtiges Dokument der tschechischen Nationalkultur und Sprache. **** Hallské vydanie Biblie môeme povaovat za prvú slovenskú Bibliu, pripravenú slovenskými evanjelikmi. Prvé vydanie z roku 1722 pripravil Daniel Krman a Matej Bel a sú aj autormi predmluvy. Ako základ textu bol vzatý text Kralickej jednodielnej Biblie z r. 1613. Krman pripravoval i druhé vydanie, ale kvôli jeho zatknutiu a neskoriemu úmrtiu sa k dokonceniu druhého vydania nedostal. Druhé vydanie preto vychádza a po jeho smrti a pripravil ho Samuel Trautmann. Oproti prvému vydaniu neobsahuje Krmanov predhovor. Pre toto 3. vydanie, predmluvu pripravil J.T.Elsner. Ceský text gotikou, latinské slová antikvou. Titl. list cerveno-cierny s medirytinou znázornujúcou dolovanie a biblický citát. Za titl. chýba medirytinový frontispis s postavou Krista. Rizner I./130 s. Exemplár v hnedej celokoenej väzbe s ozdobným kovaním. Na predtitulnom liste je napísaný rodopis Bellovcov - pôvodných vlastníkov Biblie.

      Oxford: Sheldonian Theatre,, 1710. Cum Comentariis Eustathii, Archiepiscopi Thessalonicensis. Octavo in half-sheets (195 x 118 mm). Contemporary panelled calf, raised bands to spine within blind rules, brown morocco label, edges sprinkled red. 4 engraved folding maps. Bookplate of Robert J. Hayhurst, Lancashire retail chemist and bibliophile, to the front pastedown, strictly contemporary ownership inscription "Ex Libris G. Ferrand, [?]E Coll. Univ. Oxon: 1715" to the front free endpaper. Tips bumped and lightly rubbed, front joint superficially split, a few small stains and a portion of mild stripping to rear board, tide-mark to top edge of prelims, a few early text leaves and the final blank. A very good copy in an attractive contemporary binding. An attractive Oxford edition of the only surviving work by the Greek poet thought to have lived in Alexandria in the 2nd century AD, printed with the Latin commentary of Eustathius (d. 1195/6) and four attractive maps illustrating Greek geographical knowledge. Classical works were published at Oxford from the 1580s onwards, although the output of Greek texts remained small throughout the 17th century: "It was during the 18th century rather than the 17th that Oxford saw the publication of classical works that made sustained use of the typographical resources of the press and the constantly augmented holdings of the Bodleian, and which even awakened Oxonian scholarship. Most were Greek, reflecting in part increasing interest in Greek at the University" (Quarrie, "The Learned Press: Classics and Related Works", in The History of Oxford University Press, ed. Gadd, p. 383).
