Bible. German. 1710. Luther.
Ace Books, 1710. Aside from its importance in the religious tradition, Luther's translation of the Bible is probably the most important single text for the formation of Modern German. Like other Luther Bibles, this one contains his prefaces to the books of the Bible, including his theologically significant Preface to the Epistle to the Romans. It is also supplemented by the Augsburg Confession, of which, sadly, the last leaf is absent here. In this printing, a fine engraved title-page shows an angel delivering Luther's translation of the Old Testament to a Church still in bondage to the requirements of the old Law. A similar sectional title-page, depicting God the Father, Jesus Christ, and allegorical figures of the sacraments of Baptism and Communion, comes before the New Testament. Six special pairs of leaves, bound in at various places, each offer a first page containing an engraving of biblical figures and three following pages containing their biographies. A woodcut vignette of the unusual triple arms of the city of Nürnberg appears on the title-page; a number of chapters are adorned, at head, with one-third page woodcut illustrations set in neat borders; and the books typically open with typographically appealing two-column "headers." The text is in a handsome and relatively legible fraktur. The size, decoration, and overall composition of the volume, along with its faults (especially the manner in which which pages are worn), suggest a history as a lectern Bible in a Lutheran Church. Binding: This copy is bound in ornately blind-tooled and -stamped alum-tawed p … [Click Below for Full Description]

Armorial bookplate of Sir Robert Eden, Bart. affixed to front paste-. down. Shallow chip from crown of spine panel, calf a bit rubbed at. edges, new leather title piece, internally an exceptionally clean,. crisp copy. Rare. (#90749). First edition. The correct first edition (Rosenberg's edition A) with the armillary sphere device on the title page with its base pointing to the left, footnote present on page 77 referring to a plate not present in any surviving copy (the footnote was omitted from other editions when the plate was not produced), and the change to smaller type on page 508. Although the title page is dated 1710, Rosenberg concludes that the book was not published prior to November 1714 and not later than 1717. A landmark in the development of the French voyage novel. "Wrecked on the coast of Australia, James Massey and other survivors explore the interior and discover a fertile, happy valley, free of wars." - Lewis, Utopian Literature, p. 192.

He furthermore originated the neurogenic theory of the heart's action and he was the first to suggest that the circulation resembled a simple hydraulic system. He was the first to insist that the heart beat was a simple muscular contraction. - Dibner Heralds of Science 190. Garrison & Morton 762.

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, … [Click Below for Full Description]

Visscher II, Nicolaes
Amsterdam: Pieter Schenk II, 1710. A SPECTACULAR EXAMPLE OF THE VISSCHER WALL MAP OF THE AMERICAS (c.1710) Wall map on 2 engraved sheets with additional banner title across the top and five engraved views across the bottom Total dimensions 31 3/4" x 37 1/2" Backed on linen with wooden rollers The Visscher family was one of the leading map-publishing dynasties of seventeenth century Amsterdam founded by Claes Jansz. Visscher (1587-1652), and continued by his son Nicolaes (I) (1618-1677) then his grandson Nicolaes II (1649-1702), to his widow Elizabeth (d.1726). From her, many of the map plates passed to Pieter Schenk (II), the publisher of this fine wall-map. It is presumed, based on the delineation of the Americas, particularly the Great Lakes region and the Pacific coast, with the insular form of California, that this map was first published by Nicolaes Visscher (II) circa 1680, and this may indeed may be the two-sheet wall map of the Americas listed in Nicolaes II's catalogue of 1682. The two elaborate cartouches were designed by Philip Tideman and engraved by Willem van Gouwen, both of who worked for Visscher in the 1680s. Geographically the map is comparable with the Jan Mathisz two-sheet map of the Americas, published in 1655, common features being the single open-ended Great Lake and the flat northern coastline for California. The running title is printed from two separate plates pasted outside the upper border, evidently a generic banner, with the word 'Americae' on a paste-on over the original engraving - 'Europae'. Outside the lower border are f … [Click Below for Full Description]

Tellez F. Balthazar
London: J. Knapton, 1710. First English translation of this very rare work by Tellez. Illustrated with an early folding map of the country, delineated by those Fathers, as is the Drought of the true Springs and Course of the Nile, within Ethiopia. 4to (202 X 162 mm.), bound in calf to style, ruled in blind on upper and lower covers, blind tooled in the corners, the spine with raised bands, lettered in gilt on two red morocco lettering labels, turn-ins decorated in blind. (4), 264, (16) pp. A beautifully preserved copy with the map in excellent order, the text-block clean and the binding very well preserved. VERY RARE. ONLY ONE COPY HAS APPEARED AT AUCTION IN MANY, MANY YEARS. “This work is a summary and digest of all the travelers to Abyssinia including Alvarez, Gregory, Ludolphus, Lobo and the annual letters of the Jesuit fathers from 153-1656.” “Telles' account was a summary of the discoveries made by the Jesuit missionaries from 1520 onwards. The Jesuits penetrated far into Ethiopia and made extensive studies of its language and history, providing Europeans with more information than was available for other parts of Africa at this time.” “This work of Tellez was composed from the memoirs of various missionaries; transmitted to Portugal by Almeida and is remarkably rare.” Leyden II Bibliography.

Padua: Nella stamperia del Seminario, 1710. FIRST EDITIONS. Each 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 t … [Click Below for Full Description]

Vallisnieri, A.
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. 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]
