To which are annex'd, Useful Observations upon each Prescription. [By Edward Strother.] London: Printed for Charles Rivington ., 1716. First edition. 12mo. xii, 166, [2] pp. The final leaf is a publisher's advertisement. Bookblock sound; however, the upper board is detached and the lower board is missing. Ex library, ink stamp on title-page and p. 50. Text pages are age toned, some with light to moderate foxing. A popular work, a second edition with a portrait was issued the same year as the first (which was issued without a portrait), as was a second part entitled "Pharmacopoeiae Radcliffeanae pars altera." A complete copy of the first edition of the first part that needs rebinding and is offered as is. John Radcliffe (1650-1714) was a successful, Oxford-educated, English physician. He established a large practice at London that was as much a result of his witty conversation as his clinical skill and accurate prognoses, though sometimes his wit seems to have verged on rudeness, especially to his social superiors, and his prognoses were blunt. He became chief physician to the Princess Anne in 1686, after which he was employed professionally by William III, whom he eventually offended. At his death he bequeathed money in trust to Oxford University to build and maintain a library, which was completed in 1747 and still bears his name, and other large sums for charitable use. (Wellcome IV, p. 462; D.N.B.).

      In - folio picc. Legatura della metà dell'800 in mezza pelle con angoli, dorso con titolo e fregi impr. in oro; lievi abrasioni. Antiporta allegorica inc. in rame, 10 illustrazioni inc. in rame e numerose inc. in legno n.t. (8, incl. l'antiporta), 248, (8) pp.; lieve uniforme arrossatura della carta. Prima edizione di questa raccolta di studi, esperimenti ed osservazioni compiuti dal noto erudito in vari campi delle scienze naturali. "This work, edited by one of Kircher's pupils, Johann Stephan Kestler, is a codification of Kircher's observations and experiments across the entire spectrum of his researches in physics. Naturally there are large sections in light and shadow, magnetism, acoustics, and music; but there are also experiments and observations in hydrolics, alchemy, and a myriad of other topics. This compendium was perhaps a response to entreaties from Kircher's fellow scientists, who appreciated his keen observations and experiments but did not care to wade through some 40 volumes to glean them. The book is an example of what Kircher's writings could have been like at the hands of a good editor. Kircher died the year the book was published, and it is uncertain to what extent he was involved in its publication. The Physiologia is not only a measure of Kircher's scientific curiosity and the vast range of his scientific researches, but also a barometer of his age, a catalogue of scientific concern of his time" (Merrill, Kircher, 29). Caillet 5796. NLM (on line), 2371050R. Garrison - M. 580: "Includes the first recorded experiments on hypnotism in animals". First edition. With an extra engraved title, and many woodcut and engraved text illustrations. Owner's name in ink on title dated 1716; mild uniform toning of the paper; generally a good copy bound in early 19th century half calf gilt, slightly rubbed.

        Rariora Musei Besleriani quae olim Basilius et Michael Rupertus Besleri collegerunt...

      [Nuremberg], 1716. Folio (313 x 195mm). pp (xxiv), 112, with title in red and black, woodcut headpiece, engraved portrait of Lochner (folded), and 40 double-page engraved plates. Contemporary vellum, old manuscript title on spine. First edition. This work catalogues the natural history collections of Basil Besler (1561-1629) and his nephew Michael Rupert (1607-1661), both Nuremberg apothecaries. /The collection was one of the first such private museums in Germany. Basil Besler published two rare suites of engravings, in 1616 and 1622, illustrating his cabinet, and Michael Rupert published in 1642 his Gazophylacium rerum naturalium devoted to his own additions to the collection. Lochner utilised the 24 plates from the 1616 suite, and added 16 further plates some of which derive from the 1662 suite and the 1642 Gazophylacium, and some depicting further objects not previously illustrated. In addition, he has written a detailed descriptive text and a history of the collection. Six plates, entitled Fructus, show various seeds and fruit; four larger plates follow, one with a Brazilian indian seed-girdle, unusual roots including ginseng, etc, one with a group of aquatic birds, one with birds-of-paradise, toucans and hornbills, and one devoted to unusual animal horns; four plates, entitled Animalia, include an armadillo, crocodiles, an iguana and chameleon, snakes, etc.; these are followed by a larger plate with a hammerhead shark, a dracaena, a ray, etc; six plates, entitled Marina and two Conchilia depict various wonders of the sea, including 3 nautilus shells; a larger plate features various 'Archimboldo' shell grotesques; the remaining 17 plates, 14 of which are entitled Lapides, with two larger untitled plates, are devoted to various stones, minerals, fossils, corals, etc. //Cobres 102 n. 9; Nissen ZBI, 348.

K. verfasste eine Chronik des Klosters, das 'Chronicon Schyrense'" (BBKL, 434-435). - "Als sorgsamer Haushalter, durch Neubauten, noch mehr durch die Erweckung wissenschaftlichen Lebens und eigene litterarische Thätigkeit hat er sich um sein Kloster verdient gemacht. Von ihm ist das ,Chronicon Schirense' verfaßt, das in anziehender Weise über die Gründung des Klosters und die ältere Geschichte des Hauses Scheiern-Wittelsbach berichtet und in Baiern die den Landesfürsten gewidmete geschichtliche Litteratur eröffnet.

        Thomae Cragii De Riccartoun, in Senatu Edenburgensi Patroni & Jure Consultissimi, Jus Feudale : Tribus Libris Comprehensum : Quod, Praeter Jus Commune Longobardicum, Feudales Angliae Scotiaeque Consuetudines Complectitur

      Lipsiae [Leipzig] : Apud Joh. Frid. Gleditsch & Filium, 1716-01-01. Hardcover. Very Good. Jus Feudale tribus libris comprehensum. Fine binding. 4to. Latin. 20 preliminary leaves, 704, [15], 24 pages ; 22 cm. Bound in modern full leather in contemporary style. 4 raised bands. Blind tooling. Gilt lettering on spine label. Fine binding and cover. Marbled end pages. Clean, unmarked pages. Toning. Thomas Craig was a Scottish lawyer, jurist and poet. He probably started work on Jus Feudale in the late 1590s and there is considerable internal evidence to suggest that much of it was written in 1600. There was at least one revision, probably in 1606. The culmination of a lifetime's professional involvement in Scottish law, it was enriched by frequent allusions to practice. Written in admirably clear Latin, it is a typical humanistic work in its classical quotations and references and historical and philological discussions. That it originated in a patriotic concern for Scots law is revealed by Craig's stated Ciceronian aim of reducing that law to an ordered science, thereby making it easier for students to learn. He achieves this admirably, writing an accessible, learned, and well-structured work, in which he stresses the feudal origins of much Scots law (and English law too), and from that basis explains and expounds his subject in a logical fashion. He ultimately validates Scots law and its practices in the law of nature and nations in a way that to some extent anticipates Grotius. Craig's systematic account of feudal land law and its principles influenced numerous later Scottish writers, but also had an impact on English legal writers and on English understanding of the history of the common law.

        Trivia: or, The Art of Walking the Streets of London

      1716. GAY, John. Trivia: or the Art of Walking the Streets of London. [4], 80, [12] pp. 8vo., 195 x 120 mm, full nineteenth-century maroon morocco by Riviere. London: Bernard Lintott, [1716]. First Edition of Gay's poem based upon the Georgics of Virgil. "Though there had been imitations of Virgil's didactics, there had been nothing of the scope, nor any that had hit upon the real idea, of Trivia: to imitate in mock, not just one or another of Virgil's prescriptions, but the entire work" (Dearing). The title of the work signifies streets- the avenues of London, both grand and squalid, portrayed so vividly in the poem. In Gay's interpretation of Virgil's work, the harmonious balance between country and city life is revealed as a hopeless dream: modern urban existence, with all of its defects, was now the dominant mode for humanity. One of only 250 large paper copies. Slight crack at head of spine, else a fine copy. Rothschild 914. Hayward 142. Foxon G82. V.A. Dearing (ed.), John Gay. Poetry and Prose 546.

        Historiographie générale des provinces ecclésiatiques de l'église latine ou l'on traite de l'origine des patriarcats, primaties, archevéchez et evêchez, répandus dans les quatre parties du monde. comme aussi de l'établissement des ordres religieux dans chaque diocèse, et des lieux, qui ont donné naissance à leurs fondateurs et fondatrices.

      First Edition. Title page red and black. Full sheepskin marbled period; Back to nerves tooled, red morocco title, roulette borders. Some scratches on the flat; two corners bare; a slight lack of bottom joint. Important and unusual story of the founding of the Latin churches and religious orders worldwide, the author even including India and America. In France, the author sets the story in all provinces and cities. At the same time this story doubles as a geographical interest, the author never failing to locate and describe the location of the birth of an order or a church, it is also a history of the saints and history everything short of each country, region or city; even heraldic appearance is far from being neglected as rich this item. chez François Sébastien Offray A Avignon 1716 Un vol. in Folio (36 x 23 cm) relié

        Decii Junii Juvenalis et Auli Persii Flacci Satyrae

      London - Jacob Tonson and John Watts, 1716 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A scarceearly eighteenth-century copy of Juvenal's Satires. Featuring an engraved frontispiece. In Latin. With an armorial bookplate to the front pastedown. The Satires are a collection of satirical poems by the Latin author Juvenal written in the late 1st and early 2nd centuries AD. Juvenal is credited with sixteen known poems divided among five books; all are in the Roman genre of satire, which comprised a wide-ranging discussion of society and social mores in dactylic hexameter. These five books were discrete works, and there is no reason to assume that they were published at the same time or that they are identical in theme or in approach. The poems are not individually titled, but translators have often added titles for the convenience of readers. Condition: In a full speckled calf binding. Externally, sound with some rubbing to the extremities. Spine label missing. Joints cracked but holding firm. Internally, firmly bound. Slight age toning butvery clean throughout. Ink number to front pastedown. The top corner of the front free endpaper has been clipped. Overall: VERY GOOD..

        VIAGGIO DEL GIOVANE ANACARSI IN GRECIA NELLA META' DEL QUARTO SECOLO AVANTI L'ERA VOLGARE. Tradotto dal Francese.

      Presso Luigi Coltelllini [Nella Stamperia di Niccola Russo]Opera completa in nove volumi + uno di tavole, "Atlante al viaggio del giovine Anacarsi in Grecia", dedicata a Sua Altezza Reale Francesco Borbone, Principe Ereditario delle Due Sicilie. Cm.20,2x12. Pg.3496 complessive. Salde legature in piena pergamena istoriata. Tasselli bicolori con titoli e fregi in oro ai dorsi. Fogli di guardia decorati e tagli a spruzzo. L'Atlante è in formato cm.25,2x20, ed è composto da 31 tavole, alcune in grande formato. Abrasione al tassello al dorso. Si tratta dell'opera più conosciuta dell'erudito francese Jean Jacques Barthelemy (Cassis, 1716 - 1795), in cui egli narra di un ipotetico viaggio del giovane Anacarsi nella Grecia antica, approfittandone per dare molte notizie storiche, geografiche e di costume del tempo. L'Opera fu pubblicata a Parigi nel 1789 e la presente costituisce la prima edizione italiana, antecedente di un anno a quella più nota dello Zatta in venezia (1791 - 1793).

        Dissertatio Physica de Terra Australi quam

      Leipzig: Typis Immanuelis Titis, 1716. Small quarto, 24 pp., significant browning to several pages, but a handsome copy, tear to edge of title-page neatly repaired (not affecting text); unbound, with strip of old pink marbled paper protecting the spine. An excellent copy of a very scarce title.Rivinus is not known to have published many works. It is interesting that one of his later titles, Tentamina quaedam physico-medica circa terras medicinales (1723), is known to have been in the library of Sir Joseph Banks (see Dryander's catalogue, volume IV, p. 353).

        Jushikei Hakki [trans.: Expression of the Fourteen Meridians]

      16 full-page woodcut illus. in the text. 56 folded leaves. Three vols. in one. 8vo, orig. wrappers (rubbed, one leaf with about five characters obscured due to a stain), orig. block printed title label on upper cover (rubbed & frayed), newly stitched in the oriental style. Tokyo: 1716. An early Japanese edition of one of the most important Chinese texts on acupuncture. Katsu "was a Chinese physician whose years are uncertain but who lived prior to the time of the Ming dynasty. He wrote a book on the introduction of the moxa system into Japan from China, the original Japanese edition of which was published in 1684 with the title Jushikei (or Jushikyo) hakki [Mestler is in error here; there were earlier editions]...A theoretical discussion, by Katsu, chiefly on acupuncture but equally applicable to moxa, not on how to cure but on the more fundamental nature of the subject, comprised the first part of that work. The first part discussed the fundamental belief of the Chinese and Japanese in a relationship between the internal organs and their diseases, and curative treatment for them at specific sites on the outside of the body. The second part, written by an unknown co-author, was subtitled Juishikei ketsu chi-ho and gave practical instruction. Several illustrations in this work show relationships between moxa or acupuncture sites and specific internal organs (e.g. between the hands and the lungs). Two drawings are especially interesting as showing external measurements of the human body, anterior and posterior aspects, referring to differences between lean and fat individuals and the influence of aging."-Mestler, "A Galaxy of Old Japanese Medical Books With Miscellaneous Notes on Early Medicine in Japan. Part II. Acupuncture and Moxibustion. Bathing, Balneotherapy and Massage. Nursing, Pediatrics and Hygiene. Obstetrics and Gynecology," pp. 473-74. The sixteen full-page woodcut illustrations explain the centers for acupuncture. The text, in three parts or volumes, concerns Yin and Yang through the arms and legs; circulation of the breath of life through the fourteen meridians; and the eight vital blood vessels. Very nice copy with some relatively inoffensive worming touching a few characters and images. .

        A Second Tale of a Tub: or, The History of Robert Powel the Puppet-Show-Man

      Printed for J. Roberts. First edition.. Spine rebacked; red leather label chipped with some loss; edges a little rubbed; very good copy.. Not in Teerink. 8vo, contemporary Cambridge style calf, red leather label, gilt lettering. Engraved frontis; imprimatur leaf. An attack on the controversial English statesman Robert Harley, for whom Swift had worked, by the diplomat and pro-Whig pamphleteer Burnet and his sometimes partner George Duckett, friend of Addison and commissioner of excise. Burnet and Duckett also collaborated on two weeklies, Pasquin and The Grumbler, and a pamphlet critical of Pope's Homer, The Homerides (1716), which earned them a place in the Dunciad Variorum. Here they tell the story of manipulative, greedy puppeteer, descended from a Roman henchman which is obviously based on Harley, who had just been sent to the Tower. Though not traditionally considered prose fiction, A Second Tale of a Tub is an early example of collaborative fiction.

Da er später in der kleinen, von der Pest dezimierten Stadt kein ausreichendes Auskommen fand, kaufte er 1684 eine Offizin in Breslau, wo er dann bis zu seinem Tode als hochgeachteter Stadtarzt wirkte. - Eigentlich ohne wissenschaftliche Bildung, ein geschickter und mutiger Handwerkschirurg, erhielt er seine beste Ausbildung im Krieg, der Mutter der Chirurgie. Die deutsche Chirurgie verdankt ihm viel. So die erste Transfusion (1668 mit Lammblut. Er erprobte die Infusion an sich selbst und hatte bis 1684 schon 40 Trepanationen ausgeführt, wobei er die Knochenspäne mit einem Röhrchen fortblies. Während die Kunst der Plastischen Chirurgie bei seinen Zeitgenossen weitgehend in Vergessenheit geraten war, gibt Purmann ausführliche Hinweise zur Transplantation und zur Wiederherstellungschirurgie. Sehnenverletzungen der Hand band er mit in Alkohol konservierten Darmsaiten zusammen. Ein Aneurysma hat er totalexstirpiert und bei der Behandlung der Bauchbrüche verwendete er die innere Naht des Bruchsackes ohne Kastration, er praktiziert den Kaiserschnitt an der Lebenden, die Tracheotomie, ferner berichtet er über Anheilung einer fast ganz abgehauenen Ohrmuschel, deren Wundflächen zuerst "geritzet", und dann mit einem Heftpulver bestreut und mit Heftpflaster befestigt wurden, etc. - Ein Pionierwerk deutscher Chirurgie! - Siehe ausführlich zur Ohrenheilkunde - A.Politzer, Gesch. d.
