From the antiquarian library of Christopher Rowe. Christopher Rowe was a schoolmaster in Norwich and then in Bristol. Throughout his career he inspired many to love literature, history and music. He was a specialist on 17th century printer and bookseller, Humphrey Moseley and began his, unfortunately unfinished, PhD dissertation on him.

An almost identical set to that we are offering, though lacking some frontispieces and titles, is in the Cotsen Children's Library at Princeton. Of the utmost rarity and importance.

        Histoire de l'Église du Japon

      Paris: François Montalant, 1717. 2 volumes. [28]+659+[11] pages with 4 plates and index; [10]+678+[6] pages with 4 plates (one folding) and index. Quarto (10" x 8") bound in half leather with raised spine bands in gilt lettering to spine over marbled boards. (Streit-Dindinger VI, 1418.) Second edition of a 1689 history of missions to Japan prefaced with a general account of the country.Jean Crasset was an ascetical writer, born at Dieppe, France, 3 January, 1618 and died at Paris, 4 January, 1692. He entered the Society of Jesus in 1638, became professor of humanities and philosophy, was director for twenty-three years of a famous sodality of men connected with the professed house of the Jesuits in Paris, and was also a successful preacher. Crasset is the author of many ascetical works, among which are:Methode d'oraison; Considérationes chrétiennes pour tous les jours de l'année; La chrétienne in soli tude; Dissertation sur les oracles des Sibylles, which was vigorously attacked; Entretiens pour la jeunesse. He also published in 1689 a Historie de l'église du japon which has been translated into several languages but which is considered inferior to that of Charlevoix. Crasset's history was scarcely original, for it was drawn in great part from the work which Father Solier had issued in 1627; he merely retouched the style and continued the narrative from 1624 to 1658. The objection is made that the work lacks precision, is heavy, and is crowded with details. The author attributed the origin of the persecution of 1597 to the imprudence of the friars in making their religious ceremonies public. There is a posthumous work of his entitled La foy victorieuse de l'infidélite et du libertinage. On 9 September, 1656, the Bishop of Orléans issued an interdict against him for having in one of his sermons charged several ecclesiastics with sustaining the propositions condemned by the Bull of Innocent X, Cum occasione (31 May, 1653). The interdict was removed in the following February.Condition:Nicely rebound in half leather. Contents toned and damp-stained, St. Charles Borromeo Seminary stamp on titles else a very good set.

        De Urinis et Pulsibus, de Missione Sanguinis de Febribus, de Morbis Capitis, et Pectoris. Opus Laurenti Bellini. Dicatum Francisco Redi. Cum Indice Locupletissimo.

      Lugduni Batavorum (Leiden) Apud Johannem à Kerckhem 1717 - Editio Quarta Prioribus Correctior. 4° [ = 20,5 x15 cm]. Titelblatt mit Kupferstichvignette, 11 nn. Blatt, 679 S., 12 nn. Blatt. Ledereinband der Zeit. *** SCHÖNES EXEMPLAR DER BEDEUTENDEN SCHRIFT ZUR NIERENFUNKTION! *** "BELLINI TUBULI DES NIERENPARENCHYMS" *** Blake, S. 40. *** Waller 867 [zur 2. Auflage von 1698]. *** Hirsch, Bd. I, S. 383 ff. *** Lorenzo Bellini (1643 Florenz -1704 ebd.) "entdeckte im Jahre 1663, daß die Substanz der Niere »nicht aus einer harten, festen, fleischigen Substanz bestehe« sondern »nichts anderes als eine Anhäufung unendlich vieler Gefäße besonderer Art« sei. Diese Entdeckung der Nierentubuli führte zu einer neuen Ausscheidungstheorie, die Bellini folgendermaßen beschreibt: »Wenn also das Blut aus den Arterien hervortritt, trifft es auf zwei Klassen von Gefäßen, die der Venen und die der Nieren. Das Serum, von Blut getrennt, geht in die Nierenkanäle und das Blut, vom serösen Humor befreit, geht in die Venen. Diese Abtrennung jedoch erfolgt weder durch Attraktion noch durch Verwandschaft, noch durch Sympathie, sondern wird einzig und allein durch die dies fordernde Konfiguration der Gefäße vollendet«. - Diese rein mechanische Auffassung der Nierenfunktion setzte sich außerordentlich schnell durch und blieb im wesentlichen bis in 19. Jhdt. hinein bestehen." - "Darüber hinaus zog Bellini aus seinen Versuchen einen sehr wichtigen Schluß, daß die eigentliche Menge des Harns, da dieser mit mehr oder weniger Wasser verdünnt sein könne, nur aus seinem Gewicht erkannt werden könne: »Hieraus geht hervor«, schreibt er weiter, »daß das Auge nicht sicher urteilen kann, welche Lockerheit oder Dichte der Harn habe. Deshalb müssen wir zum Wägen unsere Zuflucht nehmen, mit dessen Hilfe die Menge eines Stoffes nicht durch den Vergleich mit dem Raum, den das ganze Gemisch einzunehmen scheint, beurteilt wird, sondern in dem man die gesamte Masse des Körpers vergleicht mit der bekannten Masse eines Körpers von bekanntem Gewicht, der genauso schwer ist«. In völlig exakter und heute noch vertretbarer Weise erklärt, taucht hier erstmals der Begriff der Dichte des Harns auf." - "Doch in den Teilen der Abhandlung, die sich mit der medizinischen Bedeutung des Harns befassen, tauchen die neuen Methoden der Harnuntersuchung nicht mehr auf. Hauptsächlich werden die Harnregeln der Hippokratischen Schriften kommentiert. (.) Die hier dargestellte konservative Haltung in der praktischen Medizin ist nicht so verwunderlich, wenn man bedenkt, daß die Ergebnisse der Harnanalysen zum damaligen Zeitpunkt tatsächlich völlig nutzlos für die Klinik bleiben mußten. Der Versuch, die wenigen bekannten Harnbestandteile in irgendeine Beziehung zu bestimmten Krankheiten zu setzen, hätte unweigerlich zu Spekulationen führen müssen, die denen eines Leonhard Thurneysser nur wenig nachgestanden hätte." J.Bleker, Gesch. Nierenkrankheiten, 53,56,61,62,79 - "Bellini realized the value of the urine as an aid to diagnosis and insisted on its chemical analysis in pathological conditions". Garrison & Morton 4162 (EA 1683). *** Gutes Exemplar mit leichten Gebrauchsspuren, Text fast fleckenfrei, Einband minimal berieben bzw. beschabt, Vorsatzblatt mit kleinem Randausschnitt. Aussengelenk fachmännisch restauriert.

In 1712 the government sent him to examine the condition of the Spanish colonies in America. After visiting the principal points in Peru, Chili and Brazil, he returned to Marseilles. He pointed out several mistakes in the "Relation" of Father Feuille, and this led to a bitter controversy between the two travelers. Frézier introduced the large Chili strawberry into France.

        Japanese Votive Slips Album

      Dates of the slips range from late Edo to early Showa periods (1860s - 1930s.. Thick accordion style album of 145 Japanese senjya fuda ??? [lit. thousand shrines slips] or n?satsu ?? [literally votive slips] laid down on to the folded leaves of this attractive album. Slips are all in very good to excellent conditions. Patterned cloth covered boards. 19 x 13cm. A lovely collection beautifully presented. The very old custom of printing votive slips began when visitors to a shrine or a Buddhist temple stuck a paper slip with his/her name and address onto the building in commemoration of their visit, as well as in the hope of getting a divine favour. This custom became very popular in the mid-Edo period and the style of paper slips gradually changed from hand-written slips to colourful woodcut print votive slips. Shops as well as individuals came to produce decorative votive slips, and in the case of the slips printed by shops, they functioned as advertisements. As the votive slips became elaborate, they also became collectors' items. The majority of the slips in this album bear the names of shops and companies in Tokyo, Kyoto, and Osaka, there are a number of restaurants including many sushi shops, sweet shops [One such shop, Kohagi-do ??? in Shinbashi was in business until very recently), a kimono shop, a printing shop, a book shop [Hiroo Shoten ????? in Osaka which is still trading], a doll makers, and a fish shop. Another theme within the album are the very interesting slips printed by such individuals as: Hagino Ky?koku???? (Confucian scholar known for his eccentricity, 1717?-1817), Ichieisai Yoshitsuya ????? (ukiyo-e artist, 1822-66), Sany?tei Eny? ????? (rakugoka [comic storyteller], Ozawa Ichikawazu ???? (collector of items related to frogs, 1876-1960), Kawamura Meroji ????? (visual artist and cat lover, 1886-1959), and Nakamura Shikan ???? (Kabuki actor, 1831-99 [for Shikan IV] and 1866-1944 [for Shikan V]). Two slips depict westerners, one is named “Smith" and the other “Read”. One slip says “Beikoku ofuda hakase [American expert on votive slips] jutay? ?????????”. “Jutay?" was probably being the Japanese name of the American. The collection includes many large-size slips, most of which used the compositions of earlier ukiyo-e prints. A perfect example of this are the last thirty-five large-size slips which partially used the compositions of the series called Edo-no-hana meish?-e ??????? [Flowers of Edo: Paintings of Scenic Places] in the late Edo period. These votive slips are artistically charming and some have bold designs. There is one double leaf slip which shows a horse and was printed by T?to N?satsukai ????? [Tokyo Votive Slip Association]. Over the years it has become very fashionable to produce elaborate votive slips and for collectors to meet and exchange them. Since the early 19th century through to today there have been regular meetings, n?satsukai ???, for collectors to exchange votive slips. These charming slips remain popular with collectors even today. .

      Rome: ex officina Joannis Mariae Salvioni Romani in Archigymnasio Sapientiae, 1717. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. Folio (376 x 253 mm). [8], xiii-lxiv, 378, [18] pp., including half-title, title printed in red and black, engraved frontispiece, engraved portrait of Mercati (bound after p.xx), 6 engraved plates (2 double-page mounted on stubs, one additional engr. title), 139 text engravings (some full-page), title vignette, 2 engraved initials and one engraved tailpiece. Signatures: [a]4 b-h4 A-3B4 3C6. Restored contemporary calf, spine with 7 raised bands, rebacked with original gilt-decorated spine compartments and lettering-piece laid down (extremities rubbed, corners bumped, hinges partly cracked but firm), original marbled endpapers, new flyleaves, red-colored edges. Internally clean with only very minor occasional spotting to the end. An outstanding, bright and crisp copy. Collated complete. ----Hoover 581; Cobres p.17, n. 20; Sinkankas 4390; Ward & Carozzi 1541; DSB IX, p.309; Thorndike VI, 334: Wilson, Mineral Collecting, pp. 32-34. FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE of the superb catalogue of the Vatican 'armaria', a series of cabinets with drawers which housed Mercati's fossils, marbles, ores, shells, earth samples, salts, alums, gums and resins; of particular interest to gemologists are the fine illustrations of lapis lazuli, jet, amber (including the absurd depiction of a frog encased in amber), precious coral, pearls, and nacre. "The collection reflects the state of knowledge extant at the time and therefore includes objects of presumed magical or medicinal virtue as well as those which are correctly identified and described. The plates can scarcely be equaled for fidelity to originals and the exquisite care employed in their engraving and printing" (Sinkankas). Mercati (1541-1593) directed the botanical garden of the Vatican and soon became famous for his scientific achievements. "As a naturalist Mercati's greatest interest lay in collecting minerals and fossils; this collection later formed the basis of the work that has made him famous: Metallotheca (Rome, 1717)" (DSB). The work existed only in manuscript at the time of Mercati's death, but it was prepared for publication by Givanni Maria Lancisi (1654-1720). In 1719 the work was reissued with a cancel title, a portrait of Lancisi added, and an appendix with most of Gaumier's plates in the main work re-engraved. Near Fine.

        A Voyage to the South-Sea, and along the Coasts of Chili and Peru...

      London: Jonah Bowyer, 1717. Quarto, with 22 maps and plans and 15 engraved plates and views; in contemporary calf, gilt, spine gilt in compartments with double labels. Rare: the first English edition, with a new postscript by Edmund Halley dealing with South American navigation. Frézier sailed under the Horn to reach the west coast of South America, and his description and maps (especially those of the west coast anchorages) were much used by later navigators. He gives good descriptions of Chile and Peru. One of his odder claims to fame is that he introduced the strawberry to Europe from Chile. It is illustrated here.'Frézier, a French royal military engineer, was under contract to sail to the Spanish possessions in South America to construct forts for defence against English and Dutch attacks. The French government also ordered him to chart the western coast of South America in order that they would have some knowledge of that area for possible military operations. The first part of the book gives an interesting account of the voyage from France around Cape Horn and was used by contemporary and even by later navigators. The second part relates to the voyage along the coasts of Chile and Peru, describing the chief towns and cities. Frézier, a man of observation, brought back information of considerable geographical and scientific value. Much data is included about the native inhabitants... The first English translation contains the same engravings as the original, but is preferred to the latter because it contains a postscript by Edmund Halley (of comet fame) which corrects certain geographical errors... ' (Hill). An attractive copy in contemporary binding, slight wear to joints.

        The Country Gentleman's Vade Mecum

      London: Printed for William Taylor at the Ship in Pater-noster-row, 1717. First edition of this ambitious pocket guide to farming, hunting, fishing, building, and gardening, along with "Rules for Management of a Family" and a crisp summary of the natural order: "The Island of Great Britain is the largest in the World. . . . and is in all Respects much the richest." The handsome copper-engraved frontispiece depicts an idealized English country house, surrounded by neatly bordered fields, gardens, parks, pastures, and woods. Jacob punctuates his practical recommendations with frequent "legal observations," prefiguing his influential 1729 New Law-Dictionary, which would run through dozens of editions in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The Vade Mecum concludes with an ode to God's providential, pastoral design: "Sometimes you hunt, sometimes you shoot and course, / Sometimes you fish, and all without Remorse, / On healthful Banks over a plenteous Brook / You drop successfully your baited Hook." A near-fine copy, offering a detailed glimpse into Augustan country life. Twelvemo, full contemporary speckled calf, boards ruled in gilt, gilt-ruled raised bands, edges speckled red. Engraved frontispiece; decorative headpieces, initials, and tailpieces throughout text. Eighteenth-century ink ownership signature and early ownership label to front pastedown.

Latin manuscript in brown ink on paper providing information about and tables of data for lunar and solar eclipses, with 3 full-page astronomical diagrams. Contemporary gold-tooled mottled calf.

      - A nice astronomical manuscript in Latin giving information and tables of data about solar and lunar eclipses, illustrated with three full-page diagrams. The calculations are made for viewing from Amsterdam. Each of the three principal sections has a sort of title-page, all three given above. They concern the lunar eclipses of 16/27 March 1717 and 9/20 September 1718 (both clearly noted as past events) and the solar eclipse of 11/22 May 1724, which may have occurred after the manuscript was written. For this last, the manuscript refers to the tables of astronomical data compiled by the Dutch astronomer (Johan) Philip Lansberge (1561-1632) and published at Middleburg in 1632 and later editions. In very good condition, with only minor spotting and a couple small marginal stains. The binding is somewhat worn at the hinges and edges, and the mottling has slightly cracked the surface of the leather, but it still remains in good condition.

      8vo. London: Re-printed by E. Curll, Anno 1717. 8vo., [2], [2], 32 pp., contemporary purple half leather, pebbled purple cloth boards. Many typographic flourishes in text. Newspaper clipping with review of a book about Edmund Curll. Wear to hinges and edges of binding, some foxing and damp stains; very good copy. Bookplate “From Curll’s Chaste Press. In the Collection of Lt. Col. F. Grant.” An incomplete edition. Curll says he printed from three editions, viz. 1565, 1567, and 1569. This edition ends with the poems of Sir Thomas Wyatt. Edmund Curll was an English bookseller and publisher, known for shamelessly profiting on scandals, pornography, Whig tracts, and “medical” texts. Curll managed a chain of printing houses, and he is most renown for the unauthorized publication of works produced by other houses, often against the authors wishes, especially in the case of Jonathan Swift.

        The Holy Bible, containing the Old Testament and the New: Newly Translated out of the Original Tongues: And Hath the former Translations Diligently Compared and Revised

      John Baskett, Oxford 1717 - (20 3/4 x 13 1/2 inches). Engraved frontispiece in vol. I, engraved vignettes on general title and New Testament title, engraved head- and tail-piece vignettes, and engraved initials. Contemporary black panelled morocco gilt, the covers with gilt roll-tooled borders around a series of concentric gilt panels with ornamental leafy sprays and corner-pieces, central lozenge gilt composed of similar small tooling, spines richly gilt in nine compartments, morocco lettering piece in the second compartment, gilt dentelles, marbled endpapers and gilt edges (discreet expert repairs at top and bottom of joints) Provenance: Sir John Hynde Cotton (armorial bookplate); William Charles Smith (armorial bookplate); Maggs Bros., catalogue 1212, Bookbinding in the British Isles, item 86 First edition of the monumental, splendidly illustrated "Vinegar Bible" -- a "magnificent edition" (Darlow & Moule) here ruled in red and handsomely bound. Commonly known as the "Vinegar Bible" from the misprint "the parable of the vinegar" for "vineyard" in the headline above Luke, Chapter 20. While a contemporary lambasted Baskett for this and other typographical errors in the text, calling it a "Baskett-ful of errors," Oxford historian of printing Harry Carter states that "only Baskerville's Bible is its equal among English Bibles for beauty of type, impression, and paper" (The History of the Oxford University Press, 1975, I, p. 171) In 1709 John Baskett purchased the exclusive royal patent to print Bibles in England, control of which his family retained until 1799. This magnificent edition of the Bible is among Baskett's most important works, highly regarded for its large, elegant type; its 60 striking copper-engraved vignette head- and tailpieces; and its many delicately engraved historiated initials. Two distinct varieties occur. This copy is Darlow & Moule's issue A, with additional engraved general title page depicting Moses writing the first words of Genesis (here bound as frontispiece); vigenette view of Oxford on the general title page; and vignette title page for New Testament depicting the Annunciation, dated 1716. The present example is noted for both its lovely contemporary black morocco gilt binding and for being ruled in red throughout. Similar bindings on this edition of the bible are noted in both the Wardington Collection and in Mirjam Foot's Studies in the History of Bookbinding p. 409. Darlow & Moule 735; Herbert 942.
