         Antique Print-ASIA-CHINA-INDONESIA-RUSSIA-INDIA-De Fer-1717

      - Antique print, titled: 'L'Asie Suivant les Nouvelles Decouvertes ( ).' - Interesting and very unusual map of the Asian continent. The map is based primarily on Dutch sources, particularly the outlines of Siberia and the East Indies. However, the most striking feature, which is original to De Fer, is a continuous landbridge extending from northern Korea and eastern Siberia across to America. A note acknowledges Portuguese sources for this new portrayal of the region. Hokkaido (Ieso) appears as a small circular island north of Japan. The northern coastline of Asia is based on Witsen's explorations including Cap Tabin and Cap Glace. The interior is filled with details, including what appears to be a road from Moscow to Peking, and the Great Wall of China. The Caspian Sea is presented in an unusual shape. The coastline of a portion of New Guinea is incorrectly named as Nouvelle Zeelande. Graced with three beautifully designed cartouches. Engraving / etching with hand colouring on hand laid (verge) paper. Description: This scarse map originates from: 'Introduction a la geographie - avec unde description historique sur toutes les parties de la terre.', by N. De Fer Geographe de sa Majeste Catholique. A Paris chez le Sieur Danet, gendre de l'auteur, published in 1717, 2nd ed. with several maps first published in this ed.Artists and Engravers: Made by 'Nicholas de Fer' after an anonymous artist. Nicholas de Fer (1646-1720) was the youngest son of Parisian print and map seller, Antoine de Fer [d.1673]. He became an official geographer to both French and Spanish kings. Nicholas de Fer was one of the most prolific and influential French geographers and cartographers of the late 17th and early 18th Century. Condition: Good, given age. Neatly restored split of one of the original folds lower left; partly short-cut left margin. Original folds as issued. General age-related toning and/or occasional minor defects from handling. Please study scan carefully. Storage location: BG-Iscra-B12-40 The overall size is ca. 13.9 x 9.6 inch. The image size is ca. 12.6 x 9.1 inch. The overall size is ca. 35.4 x 24.5 cm. The image size is ca. 32 x 23 cm.

         Landschaft mit Bäumen und Büschen, Gebäuden, Kirchturm und Bauernfamilie.

      - Gouache auf Pergament, mit schwarzer Tuschlinie umrandet, unten signiert „C.S. v. Bemel". 17,4:22,5 cm. – Verso entlang der Ränder alte Verklebung, winzige Bereibung der Tuschlinie im Unterrand, kleine Farbabplatzung. Zur dritten Generation der Nürnberger Malerfamilie Bemmel gehörend – sein Vater Johann Christoph von Bemmel (1717 Nürnberg – Bamberg 1788) war nach Bamberg übergesiedelt – wurde Carl Sebastian von Bemmel 1766 Bürger in Nürnberg. Er „verfertigte dort nach der Manier seiner Vorfahren und Vettern viele gute und schöne Landschaften". Besonders in England fanden seine Deckfarbenaquarelle Käufer und tauchen dort auch heute noch gelegentlich im Handel auf. Vergleichsliteratur: K. Garas, Deutsche und österreichische Zeichnungen des 18. Jahrhunderts. Budapest, 1980, Nr. 33 mit Farbabbildung. Kleine Malereien auf Pergament wie die hier vorliegende, die einen Übergang von der Zeichnung zur Malerei bilden, waren auch für weniger gut gestellte Sammler erschwinglich und trugen in erheblichem Maße zur Verbreitung und Popularität des deutschen Landschaftsbildes bei.

Facsimilie of title page loosely inserted. Errata to the rear. Known as 'Tottel's Miscellany'. This was the first printed anthology of English poetry, and was first published in 1557 by Richard Tottel. It originally contained 271 poems, of which 40 were by Henry Howard, 96 by Thomas Wyatt, and 40 by Nicholas Grimald. The second edition was substantially revised and contained 39 more poems. This is the first edition that was published outside of the 16th century. Bound in full green long grain morocco, with modern cloth slipcase. Edges tooled with birds and flowers. Bound by Charles Hering (1763-1815). "After the death of Roger Payne [he] was considered the head of the craft." - Dictionary of Printers and Printing by C. H. Timperley.

Henry Howard, earl of Surrey (1517-1547) was a poet and soldier. His translation of Virgil's 'Aeneid' is the first documented use of blank verse. Sir Thomas Wyatt (1503-1542) was a poet and ambassador. "No other writer in the early Tudor period is known to have experimented in so many genres, or to have left behind such a substantial and varied body of verse. Although Wyatt is often casually referred to as the first 'Renaissance' poet, it is more accurate to regard his achievement as distinctively Henrician: he assimilated European forms of verse and a Chaucerian poetic vocabulary to the life and milieu of a Henrician courtier and diplomat, generating in the process poems which darkly allude to political events, and which testify to the habitual indirectness of expression on which the life of a courtier and diplomat in this period depended." - ODNB Nicholas Grimald (1519-1562) was a Renaissance poet. His poetry was more prominent in the first edition of Tottel's Miscellany. Only nine of his forty poems were retained for the second edition. Condition: Very good. Spine sunned. Corners bumped. Some rubbing. Offsetting and tidemarks to the endpapers. Scattered spots throughout. Occasional thumbmark.

         An Account of the Religion, Manners, and Learning of the People of Malabar, in Several Letters written from some of the Most Learned Men of that Country to the Danish Missionaries. Translated from the High-Dutch by J. Tho. Phillips

      London, printed for W. Mears, 1717. Duodecimo, [x], 180 pages plus a frontispiece and a small folding map. Early blind-stamped full calf a little worn, but skilfully rebacked in calf (retaining portions of the original spine and the old endpapers); leading edge of the last two leaves of the preface slightly trimmed; paper discoloured and heavily foxed; edges (mainly around the top corner) inkstained, with minimal impact on the margins; small stains to the blank bottom margin of the last 25 leaves; mild signs of use and age; a decent copy. The Malabar region lies along the south-west coast of the Indian peninsula and forms the northern part of present-day Kerala state. The calling card of 'Mr H.A.D.J. Gyles / Royal Navy / HMS Lion' is mounted on the pastedown over an earlier bookplate (now partially defaced). Apparently 18 ships of the Royal Navy have been named Lion, from 1511 to 1975; we have found reference to Gyles serving on HMS Actaeon (so named in 1886, sold in 1923), so that gives a better idea of his period of ownership of this book.

      John Baskett 1717 - BIBLE, in English -- The Holy Bible. Oxford: John Baskett, 1717-1716. Elephant Folio (App. 524 x 327 mm). A magnificent copy of a rare edition of the Authorized Version known as the "Vinegar Bible." Fine contemporary binding in black morocco with the royal arms of George I of England. Title and calendar printed in red and black, roman type, text in double columns, 59 lines to the full column, engraved frontispiece by Dubose after J. Thornhill depicting Moses writing the first words of the Book of Genesis, general title with engraved view of Oxford by Gerard Vandergucht, title to New Testament with engraved vignette of the Annunciation (unsigned), 62 engraved text illustrations by Beauvais, Dubose, Dupuis, DuGuernier, Vandergucht and others after Cheron, Laguerre, and Thornhill, engraved initials and tailpieces 'MAGNIFICENT EDITION' (Darlow and Moule), known as the 'Vinegar Bible' from the misprint 'the parable of the vinegar' for 'vinyard' in Luke XX. As the great Bible monopolist, John Baskett was also parodied by contemporary wits who called his huge Bible a 'Baskett-ful of errors'. Nevertheless, Harry Carter, the historian of Oxford printing, states that 'only Baskerville's Bible (Cambridge, 1763) is its equal among English Bibles for beauty of type, impression, and paper' (The History of the Oxford University Press, 1975, I, p. 171).

Sir Thomas Wyatt (1503¿1542) was a poet and ambassador. "No other writer in the early Tudor period is known to have experimented in so many genres, or to have left behind such a substantial and varied body of verse. Although Wyatt is often casually referred to as the first ¿Renaissance¿ poet, it is more accurate to regard his achievement as distinctively Henrician: he assimilated European forms of verse and a Chaucerian poetic vocabulary to the life and milieu of a Henrician courtier and diplomat, generating in the process poems which darkly allude to political events, and which testify to the habitual indirectness of expression on which the life of a courtier and diplomat in this period depended." - ODNB Nicholas Grimald (1519-1562) was a Renaissance poet. His poetry was more prominent in the first edition of Tottel's Miscellany. Only nine of his forty poems were retained for the second edition. Condition: Very good. Spine sunned. Corners bumped.

Les mémoires de Retz "sont évidemment une apologie de l'auteur ; ils constituent néanmoins un des documents les plus véridiques que l'on possède sur l'atmosphère de la Fronde." (Mourre 3852). "Mais c'est surtout l'œuvre d'un grand écrivain, au style très personnel, tantôt parlé plutôt qu'écrit, tantôt périodique et savamment construit ; les raccourcis suggestifs y sont fréquents et d'une densité digne de Tacite [.]. Retz s'y montre un psychologue subtil et clairvoyant, grand connaisseur des hommes, de leurs passions et de leurs caractères." (Van Tieghem 3293)."Aucun homme de son temps ne fut plus grand historien, aucun ne comprit comme lui le désordre de la machine royale au temps de la minorité de Louis XIV, aucun ne sut mieux pénétrer et peindre, non seulement les principaux acteurs de la Fronde, mais les hommes politiques de tous les temps.Les Mémoires abondent en maximes qui sont vraies aujourd'hui comme en 1640, maximes aussi profondes, aussi hardies que celles de Machiavel, et plus fortes parce que plus concrètes.[ ] Il est permis de juger, en Retz, l'homme politique avec sévérité. Mazarin, contre lui, représentait l'ordre et la nécessaire paix du royaume. Mais il est impossible de ne pas reconnaître qu'il fut l'un des plus grands écrivains français."

Erste Auflage! Fast vollständige Folge der frühen medizinischen Zeitschrift, von der dritten Dekade erschien nur noch 1 Heft. "Ein bedeutendes Zeugnis der medizinischen Publizistik zu Beginn des 18. Jahrhunderts" (NDB 6, 600).Seltene medizinische Zeitschrift. - Kirchner I, 3516 . Hirsch-H. II, 789 - Die von ihm seit 1717 herausgegebenen Acta medicorum Berolinensium sind ein bedeutendes Zeugnis der medizinischen Publizistik zu Beginn des 18. Jahrhunderts. Hier wurden unter anderem wahrscheinlich die beiden ersten deutschen Todesursachenstatistiken veröffentlicht (Band 4, 1719, Band 9, 1722). Johann Daniel Gohl (Pseudonym Ursinus Wahrmund) Arzt, Medizinalstatistiker, (1674-1731) versuchte, auch die Geisteskrankheiten in das ärztliche Denken mit einzubeziehen und wissenschaftlich zu bearbeiten. (Vgl. ADB, 9, 327.)"Eine so ausgedehnte anatomische Tätigkeit, wie wir sie seit der Errichtung des anatomischen Theaters, seit 1713, verfolgt haben, mußte notwendigerweise auch viele krankhafte Veränderungen zutage fördern. Man achtete auf sie, registrierte sie, diskutierte ihre Bedeutung und verwahrte sie in der Sammlung. Die praktischen Ärzte Berlins waren indessen nicht gewillt,, sich mit diesen Zufallsfunden zu begnügen. Ein überraschendes Bild zeigt die älteste Berliner ärztliche Zeitschrift, die "Acta medicorum Berolinensium in incrementum artis et scientiarum collecta! Sit erschien in 24 (recte 21) Oktavheftchen von je etwa 100 Seiten von 1717 bis 1730, vom vierten Jahr des Theatrum anatomicum bis zum vierten Jahr der Charité. Ihr Herausgeber war zunächst Badearzt in Freienwalde, dann oberbarnimscher Kreisarzt in Wriezen, Johann Daniel Gohl, ein Schüler Stahls. "In incrementum artis et scientiarum" ist ihr Inhalt gesammelt, "auf daß die ärztliche Kunst und Wissenschaft wachse". Die Praxis steht also vor der Wissenschaft, und aus der Praxis ist ihr Inhalt erwachsen. Da sind kasuistische Beiträge aus Berlin, aus Freienwalde. Neben ihnen aber finden wir lange Reihen von Sektionsberichten aus der Krankenhaus- und Privatpraxis, von Obduktionen also, die nicht anatomische Kenntnisse verbreiten oder vermehren, sondern Einblick in das Krankheitsgeschehen vermitteln sollten, d. h. von pathologisch-anatomischen Leichenöffnungen.Diese "praktische Anatomie" wie man das damals nannte, ist hier unverkennbar erwachsen aus den forensischen Leichenöffnungen, die, seit man im hohen Mittelalter wieder menschliche Leichen zu Unterrichts Zwecken sezierte, bei gewaltsamem Tode von den Behörden angeordnet, von Wundärzten vorgenommen, von Ärzten geleitet wurden. Auch die Berliner "Acta" berichten fortlaufend über solche "depositiones medico-legales". Weit mehr Raum aber beanspruchen in ihren Heften* die "sectiones anatomicae extralegales" oder auch "anatomico- pathôlogicae" an den Leichen der "nicht durch Gewalt, sondern durch eine Krankheit zu Tode Gekommenen.Man machte sie zumeist in den Hospitälern, aber gelegentlich auch in Privathäusern. Greifen wir, um eine konkrete Vorstellung zu gewinnen, ein Heft der ,"Acta" heraus (Dec. I, H. 7). Es beschreibt auf dreißig Textseiten die pathologisch-anatomischen Sektionen des Jahres 1718, 24 an der Zahl. Elf von ihnen wurden in den Militärlazaretten, sieben im Großen Friedrichs-Hospital - noch bestand ja die Charité nicht - vorgenommen, und einige in den Wohnungen der Verstorbenen. Bei den ersteren wird als Leiter der Arzt Bergemann, als Ausführender der Chirurg Bechtold genannt. Die übrigen verrichtete der Chirurg Marggraf. Als Todesursachen sind atrophia und febris lenta und continua u. a. angegeben, auch ein Wassersüchtiger und ein skrophulöser Knabe sind dabei, sowie ein Patient, der an den Folgen einer Herniotomie starb. Dazu kommen zwei Geisteskranke. Den Hauptteil aber bilden mit sechs Fällen, d. h. einem Viertel der Gesamtzahl, Todesfälle an Phthise. William Harvey hatte seinen Zeitgenossen einmal gesagt, daß man aus der Obduktion eines Kranken, der an Phthise oder an einer anderen chronischen Krankheit gestorben ist, mehr lernen könne, als aus der Sektion von zehn Gehenkten.Es steckt in allen diesen Sektionsberichten eine erstaunliche Summe guter Beobachtungen. Das zeigt besonders anschaulich eine bildliche Wiedergabe pathologischer Veränderungen am und im Herzen (vgl. Tafel 4).Die Sektion hatte der Berliner Arzt Schwartz am 18. Februar 1714 im "Krankenhause vor der Stadt an der Leiche eines jungen Tagelöhners der an einem chronischen und hektischen Fieber gestorben war", vorgenommen. Das Bild zeigt intertrabekuläre weiße Abscheidungsthromben in der rechten Herzkammer, vor allem an der Spitze. Der Sektionsbericht in den "Acta" sagt dazu:,,Das Herz, dessen rechtes Ohr enorm erweitert war, zeigte in der geöffneten rechten Kammer eine polypenartige Konkretion, mit einer größeren Menge Blutgerinnsels dicht gefüllt. Nach dessen Entfernung wurden in den Zwischenräumen der Trabekeln und in den Furchen des Herzens neue und ganz einzigartige, bisher noch nicht gesehene weiße Exkreszenzen sichtbar, wahre Kondylome, aus einem zarten Füßchen aufsteigend und sich zu einer kammartigen, sich breiter ausdehnenden Gestalt von verschiedener Größe erweiternd, wie wir sie auf der beigefügten Tafel nach der Natur haben abbilden lassen. Noch mehr hingen an der Spitze des Herzens, die aus unverkennbar schlafferem Gewebe bestanden in der Basisgegend waren sie seltener, aber von einem etwas dichteren Gewebe. Im linken Herzventrikel waren keine er war dagegen mit einer großen Menge Blutgerinnsels gefüllt. (Dec. II., vol. 2" S. 73 f.)Inmitten des sachlich-nüchternen Berichtes wird der Feuereifer deutlich, mit dem diese Männer am Werke waren "Neues, ganz Einzigartiges, Niegesehenes", glaubt man gefunden zu haben. Zugleich aber manifestiert sich das Doppelgesicht dieser Medizin, die, noch im Alten verhaftet, zu Neuem strebt. Noch ist die Freude am (wirklich oder vermeintlich) Raren, Singulären unverkennbar noch fehlt im Zeichen der alten Monstrositäten- und Kuriositätenpathologie der Maßstab, der das Alltägliche, Typische vom Ungewöhnlichen zu scheiden erlaubt. Die gleichen Männer aber sind an der Arbeit, diesen Maßstab zu schaffen und der Raritätenpathologie den Todesstoß zu versetzen, und das planmäßig und bewußt. Gohl hat es in der Vorrede zum ersten Heft feiner "Acta" klar ausgesprochen: Man brauche Berichte über pathologisch-anatomische Sektionen, die Licht auf Prognose und Diagnose werfen unfruchtbar sei es, nach dem zu streben, "was man selten, ungewöhnlich, ja verblüffend nennt" Man hat es damals auch in Berlin - das zeigt die Arbeit eines Schwartz, eines Bergemann, eines Marggraf nicht beim Programm bewenden lassen man ist auf gutem Wege zu jener Erneuerung der Pathologie, der Jahrzehnte später Morgagni zum Siege verholfen hat.Gohl selber hat in seinen "Acta" noch einen anderen Weg gezeigt, ein breiteres, ziffernmäßig gesichertes Erfahrungsmaterial für die theoretische und praktische Medizin zu gewinnen. Er entwickelte eine Jahresstatistik der Todesfälle in Berlin, aufgegliedert nach den Todesursachen und Monaten. Diese Tabellen wurden der Ausgangspunkt der modernen Medizinalstatistik***). Ideen Leibnizens sind Wirklichkeit geworden. Es geht auch hier klar und entschieden um die Regel, die Norm im großen Krankheitsgeschehen, inmitten einer Welt, die sich erst langsam und zögernd von dem Bann des Abnormen und Regelwidrigen zu lösen beginnt.Man hat beide Wege in Berlin konsequent weiterverfolgt, den der Medzinalstatistik und den der pathologisch-anatomischen Sektionen."
