        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.

        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..

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.

        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.

        Chirurgia Curiosa ...

      . Frankfurt - Leipzig: Michael Rohrlachs seel. Wittib 1716, 4°, 8 Bll., 746 pp., 23 Bll., mit einem zweifarbigen Titelblatt und 14 Kupfertafeln, im Pergamenteinband der Zeit; wie immer Papier bedingt teilweise etwas gebräunt, feines Exemplar.. Seltene, dritte und unveränderte Auflage, der zuerst 1699, und dann 1706 erschienen großen Sammlung von "Matthaei Gothofr. Purmanni, Chirurgi und Stadt-Artztes zu Breßlau, Herausgegebene Chirurgia Curiosa. Darinnen Ein jedweder Chirurgus nicht allein auffs gründlichste sehen und finden kan, was in die gantze Wund-Artzney vor künstliche Operationes, richtige Cur-Vortheile, bewährte Artztney-Mittel, leichte und geschwinde Hand-Griffe, gehören, sondern auch solche, durch und durch, mit sehr raren und sonderlichen Observationen bewähret wird. Alles in drey Theil und 73. Capitel abgetheilet, Und mit vielen darzu dienenden Kupffer-Tabellen und Vier Registern versehen". Purmann berichtet von Kopf bis Fuss - Von allen Operationen und Handwürckungen des Hauptes, Angesichtes und Halses, des ganzen Ober- und Unter-Leibes, und der äußeren Glieder, als Armen und Schenkel, und was dabey nöthig in acht zu nehmen. - - DER CHIRURG DES GROSSEN KURFÜRSTEN - Aus Lüben in Schlesien, war Matthäus Gottfried Purmannn (1648-1711) einer der berühmtesten Wundärzte seiner Zeit. Als Militärarzt war er 9 Jahre in brandenburgischen Diensten. Dabei sammelte er in den vielen Feldzügen wertvolle chirurgische Erfahrungen. Besonders im pommerschen Krieg gegen die Schweden, namentlich 1677 vor Stettin in Bezug auf die schweren Verletzungen durch die gläsernen Granaten des Gegners. - Der Friede von St.Germain beendete die Kriegshändel des Großen Kurfürsten. Purmann nahm seinen Abschied und wurde Stadtarzt in Halberstadt. 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.

        Il mondo ingannato da falsi medici. Discorsi del Dottor Giuseppe Gazola, Veronese, Medico Cesareo, ed Accademico Alethofilo. (Opera postuma)

      PRIMERA EDICION (?).- In Trento, Per Gio: [Giovanni] Antonio Brunati, Con Licenza de' Superiori, [ca. 1716].- [6 h.], 200 p., [1 h.]: letras y viñetas capitulares grabadas en madera; 8º menor (15,7 cm.); Enc. en Pergamino época con título manuscrito en lomera, cinco nervios.- El libro tiene dos anotaciones antiguas en la hoja de cortesía y portada, sin afectar texto; por lo demás se encuentra en MUY BUEN ESTADO, con el papel blanco y sin manchas. CONTIENE: Introducción; Discorso I: Essere meglio star senza medico, che non averne un buono; Discorso II: Esservi la Medicina, ma poter ogni uno esser Medico di sè Medesimo; Discorso III: Della difficoltà della Medicina, e dell'inganno delle più famose sette de Medici, e particolarmente de gli Dommatici, e seguaci de gli Antichi; Discorso IV: Nel quale si contengono alcuni avvertimenti per vivere, e conservare molto tempo la salute; Discorso V: Se sia meglio valersi de Medici Moderni, o Galenisti. El autor (1661-1715), médico veronés y fundador de la Accademia degli Aletofili, fue un adelantado a su tiempo, anticipando el espíritu de la ilustración en su defensa de una medicina científica en contraposición a la clásica griega; según Gazola, proliferaban en su tiempo numerosos curanderos, autoproclamados médicos, que prácticamente mataban a sus pacientes en vez de curarlos. El texto está escrito con una fina ironía y no muestra compasión alguna, algo especialmente comprensible al ser una edición póstuma que probablemente el autor mandara imprimir justo tras su muerte, un año antes; el revuelo que causó fue considerable, existiendo hasta 24 ediciones distintas de esta obra, con sus correspondientes contestaciones y defensas varias. El libro que ofrecemos no tiene fecha impresa, pero sabemos que el editor, Giannantonio Brunati, publicó un par de contestaciones a esta obra ya en el 1717, y otra más en el 1718; es probable, por tanto, que el texto que ofrecemos sea del propio 1716, año en el que vio la luz la primera edición. Acerca de la misma, siendo éste un libro tan prolífico, existe sin embargo un notorio desconocimiento: algunos toman como tal la impresa en Venecia por Marino Rossetti, pero el fallecido Christian Wilhelm Kästner aduce en su Bibliotheca Medica, pág. 178, § 7, que la primera edición de la obra fue impresa en Praga, en tamaño 8º; sin embargo, no hemos encontrado evidencia de esta edición ni en la Bibl. Nacional de la República Checa, ni en la Bibl. Municipal de Praga, ni tampoco en los fondos del Inst. Checo de Literatura, siendo un completo misterio. Por último, el Prof. B. E. Durante cita en su bibliografía ésta de Trento cuando se refiere a la obra de Gazola, bien pudiendo ser nuestra edición la primera, aunque no nos atrevemos a asegurarlo. En cualquier caso, tanto en la edición veneciana como en esta trentina se incluye la misma introducción, escrita por "un iluminado" y en la que puede leerse sobre los discursos: "después de la muerte de su autor, me he propuesto sacarlos a la luz".· Libro in italiano

        Chirurgische Schriften, darinnen nicht allein alle Chirurgische Hand-Griffe, sondern auch die Ursachen der Krankheiten des Menschlichen Leibes auf das deutlichste angewiesen werden. In zweyen Theilen.

      - Nun aber aus dem Lateinischen ins Teutsche übersetztet duch Johannem Scultetum. - Nürnberg, J.D.Tauber, 1716, 4°, (44), 381, (11) + 358, 21, (18) pp., Frontispiz u. 9 doppelblattgrosse Kupferstichtafeln, Halbpergameinteinband. "Fabricius describes the extraction of teeth, showing good pictures of forceps. He also refers to the filling of teeth with gold leaves." Prinz - DIE DEUTSCHE AUSGABE = EIN RARISSIMUM - Seltene deutsche Ausgabe eines Klassikers der Chirurgie! - Hieronymus Fabricius ab Aquapendente (1537-1619), ein Schüler Fallopius', war einer der größten Anatomen und ein berühmter Renaissance-Chirurg. Er baute auf eigene Kosten das prachtvolle anatomische Theater in Padua, das noch heute zu besichtigen ist. Er war der Lehrer des jungen Harvey und hat ihm entscheidende Anregungen (Venenklappen) zu seiner großen Entdeckung vermittelt. Die einzige Abbildung in Harveys berühmter Schrift über den Blutkreislauf stammt aus einem anatomischen Werk seines Meisters. Durch den Einfluß des Fabricius wurde Padua zur berühmtesten Medizinerschule Europas. - Seine "Opera chirurgica" war für lange Jahre und für viele Chirurgengenerationen eine Fundgrube praktischen Wissens. Im 1.Teil des vorliegenden Werkes beschreibt der Autor die krankhaften Geschwülste, Fisteln, heissen und kalten Brand, die Hernien, Bauch- und Thoraxwunden, sowie ausführlich Frakturen und Luxationen, etc. Im 2.Teil behandelt er die chirurgischen Operationen in der alten Ordnung "a capite ad calcem" - vom Kopf bis Fuß. Von der Technik der Trepanation über Tracheotomie und Steinschnitt bis hin zu orthopädischen und unfallchirurgischen Interventionen werden alle praktizierten Eingriffe geschildert. - Berühmt ist das Buch auch wegen seiner sehr schönen Abbildungen. Viele heute noch gebräuchliche Instrumente sind in ihrer Frühform beschrieben und abgebildet. Besonders interessant sind die beiden ganzseitigen Abbildungen jener Vereinigung verschiedener orthopädischer Apparate, durch welche die Gelenke des menschlichen Körpers festgestellt oder bewegt werden können. Am Ende unseres Werkes wird dieser "Chirurgische Küraß" ausführlich beschrieben. - Diese deutsche Ausgabe, in der Übersetzung des Joh. Scultetus, ist selten. Wie alle volkssprachlichen Werke fanden auch die deutschen Editionen bei den Gelehrten nicht immer Anerkennung und erschienen deshalb in vergleichsweise kleinen Auflagen. Im Gebrauch zerschlissen, sind gute Exemplare heute fast unauffindbar. Gegenüber den weit verbreiteten lateinischen Editionen sind deutsche Ausgaben sehr viel wertvoller. Nur diese Ausgaben öffnen dem heutigen Leser die ganze Welt der damaligen Medizin auf eine angenehme "Lesart". - Ein Quellenwerk, das Gurlt in seiner Geschichte der Chirurgie auf 35 Druckseiten beschreibt.

        Les Loix du Roy Minos , ou continuation de quatrième livre des avantures de Telemaque fils d'Ulisse

      Amsterdam: Francois l'Honore, 1716. Duodecimo, contemporary vellum, titled in ink on the spine, old patch to lower cover; a good copy. Law and politics in Fenelon's Minos utopia. 'Nouvelle edition' (according to the title-page) of this imaginary voyage, an early work in the tradition of Fénélon's {i Avantures de Télémaque}, and a continuation of its fourth book. Fénélon's {i Télémaque} was an idealised account of the Roman Republic, and one of the most important books in the French classical tradition of the imaginary voyage. Although the authorship of {i Les Loix du Roy Minos} remains unknown, it is one of the most inventive of the Fénélon imitations, a detailed investigation of the legal and political system of the utopian Minos: the focus on the courts and policing of the kingdom suggests an author associated with the legal system. The book is rare: OCLC notes a single copy (City University of New York Graduate Library).

        Comitatus principalis Tirolis in quo Episc. Tridentino et Brixensis.

      Homann Johann Baptist, Norimberga. 1716 - Carta raffigurante il territorio tirolese contenuta in "Grosser Atlas über die ganze Welt" dell’incisore ed editore Johann Baptist Homann (1663-1724). L’impianto rimane quello maginiano, da cui derivano le consuete inesattezze (una valle inesistente riportata a nord della Val di Non e un lago immaginario in Valsugana). Interessante, in basso a destra, l’elaborata composizione che accompagna il titolo: in essa in primo piano tre figure in costume d’epoca (un cacciatore, un minatore e un vendemmiatore), sullo sfondo una veduta di Covelo che si rifà probabilmente a quella realizzata da Bodenehr negli stessi anni. Scheda bibliografica tratta da "Il territorio trentino-tirolese nell’antica cartografia" di Gino Tomasi, scheda n. 54. Formato: Incisione su rame di dimensioni 47x56 cm. Buono, ordinari segni d’uso e del tempo.
