ROBERG, LARS.
Uppsala, J. H. Werner, 1718. 8:o. (2),70 s. Titelbladet tryckt i rött och svart. Den avslutande vinjetten tryckt i rött. Enkelt grönt glättat pappbd från början av 1800-talet. Ryggen blekt och med liten ytlig skada överst. Bra stor inlaga men med smärre pappersförtunningar på en del blad. Äldre signatur på titelbladet. Med Carl Jedvard Bondes formklippta exlibris. Från Ericsberg.. Bibliotheca Walleriana 8041. Ett stort antal varianter av titelbladet till det första arbetet är kända. Två huvudtyper skiljes genom olika citat på titelsidan. De tidigare varianterna har ett citat av Rufus Ephesius, de senare, som här, ett Horatiuscitat. Inom de två huvudtyperna finns sedan ett antal varianter beträffande versosidans text. Dessutom finns två kända stadier av kancellering för blad A8, sidorna 15-16, här är det originalbladet med kustoden "TALE" på sidan 15. "Lijkrevnings tavlor" var den första anatomiska läroboken på svenska. Arbetet är förutom ur ett rent medicinskt perspektiv intressant som språk- och idéhistoria. Lindroth skriver: "Roberg var en entusiastisk språkivrare och purist, med obekymrad uppfinningsrikedom kläckte han nya anatomiska termer på svenska: placenta blev 'bördkaka', hjärtats auriklar 'örhängen', vena cava 'stora gröpådran'. Han fullföljde här en språklig tradition, som inletts under medeltiden av Konungastyrelsens och Moseboksparafrasens författare."

Warmholtz 7043. Intressant exemplar av Johan Peringskölds utgåva av Anna Fickesdotter Bylous släktkrönika. Enligt Warmholtz lät han trycka boken på familjen Sparres bekostnad.

Anna Fickesdotter (†1519) var abbedissa på Vadstena och redogör, på begäran av den nytillträdde biskopen i Linköping Hans Brask, för en mängd samtida släktförhållanden, vilka Peringsköld till viss del kritiskt granskat. Mer granskning redogör Annerstedt för på de interfolierade bladen.

Francis BEAUMONT and John FLETCHER
Printed for J.T. [Jacob Tonson] and sold by J. Brown at the Black Swan without Temple-Bar, 1718. Printed for J.T. [Jacob Tonson] and sold by J. Brown at the Black Swan without Temple-Bar,, 1718. 4to., on laid paper, some mild age- and damp-marking to several leaves; strongly bound in twentieth century boards, paper label, a bright, crisp copy. Although attributed here to Beaumont and Fletcher, later scholarship increasingly favours authorship by Fletcher and Massinger. The play, one of the finest Restoration comedies, was first performed in 1622 with the first licensed edition following in 1647. We have not been able to trace another eighteenth century edition of this work on its own. Tannenbaum, 501; see CBEL I, 635.

Vanière, Jacques, SJ (zugeschr.)].
Florenz, Cajetano Fartini, 1718. 1046 SS. Pergamentband um 1860 mit goldgepr. rotem Rückenschildchen. Dreiseitiger gesprenkelter Rotschnitt. Gr.-8vo. Seltene Ausgabe des noch vielgedruckten, schon seit 1676 nachgewiesenen Handbuchs, das in sich ein lateinisches Wörterbuch, einen Synonymenthesaurus, eine Phraseologie (mit Stellen bei klassischen Autoren) sowie eine Grammatik und Prosodie vereint. Die von Barbier vorgenommene Zuschreibung an Jacques Vanière (1664-1739) dürfte unrichtig sein, zumal dieser zum Zeitpunkt der frühesten Ausgaben noch ein Kind und jedenfalls noch nicht Jesuit war. Dagegen veröffentlichte Vanière 1710 ein "Dictionarium poeticum". - Papierbedingt durchgehend etwas braunfleckig. Außenrand des letztes Blatts und Innenrand des Titels mit kl. Läsuren (alt angerändert); am hinteren Innendeckel hs. Notiz (um 1860), die den Preis des Buches (£ 2,55) sowie der Bindung (£ 2,25) einzeln aufschlüsselt. - Vgl. de Backer/Sommervogel VIII, 450, 13 (andere Ausgg.).

PONTEDERA, Giulio.
Padua, Typ Seminarii, 1718. 4to. (2) + xviii + (4) + 168 + (2) + xxiv + (2)pp. Engraved device on title, decorative capitals and head- and tail-pieces throughout. Contemporary boards, ink title on spine. Pontedera became prefect of the Padua Botanic Garden the year following publication of this his first work on newly discovered and noteworthy plants of the Veneto. It is classified according to the Tournefort system widely used at the time for 'its simplicity and ease in use' and for the fact that 'Tournefort settled in practice the circumscription and names of so many plant genera' later to be further clarified by Linnaeus (Morton). Pontedera's directorship spanned one of the most important periods in botanic research, and he corresponded with those actively engaged in building significant collections; the letter to William Sherard in the above work commenting on the latter's botanic garden at Smyrna (Izmir) during his consulship there is of note since Sherard communicated widely, ultimately settling in Oxford to which he donated his collections. Pontedera's sources reflect the important plant collections of the period in Europe, also nearby experimental gardens such as those presided over by Paolo Clarici (Villa Marocco) and Antonio Tita (Hortus Maurocenus).

This image shows a coastal connection between Greenland and the northern coast of Hudson Bay. Centerfold as issued. Probably the most talented map-maker of this remarkable family, Guillaume De L'Isle had drawn his first map by age 9, and was elected to the Royal Academy of Sciences by 27 (see Moreland & Bannister's 'Antique Maps'). The above date is approximate. This is a nice copy of an uncommon map, with N. America, Asia, northern Africa and northern S. America.

Som ock: hwad orsaken är: at en drunknader kropp siunker/ och någon tijd ther effter/ åter upflyter igen. Samt: om ett omogit barns tecken. Sthlm, J. L. Horrn, 1720. 8:o. 16 s.

Waller 4879 och 4881. Av första delen utkom en andra upplaga i Västerås 1759. Hoorn diskuterar i dessa arbeten hur man genom lungans beskaffenhet hos avlidna foster kan avgöra huruvida de varit dödfödda eller dött efter förlossningen. Andra arbetet diskuterar också varför en drunknad med tiden flyter upp till ytan. Breven hade sin grund i Hoorns arbete som rättsmedicinsk expert i barnamordsmål.

Delisle, Guillaume (1675-1726)
Paris: Guillaume DeLisle, Quai de l'Horloge, 1718. THE FIRST MAP TO NAME TEXAS Copper-plate engraving with original outline color: 20" x 263/4" References: Seymour I. Schwartz & Ralph E. Ehrenberg, The Mapping of America (New York, 1980), 140-143, 146; R. V. Tooley, The Mapping of America (London, 1985), 21; M.B. Pritchard & H.M. Taliaferro, Degrees of Latitude: Mapping Colonial America (Williamsburg, 2002), 118-21. This is the first edition, first state of an exceptionally important map of the Mississippi River, Texas and the South: Guillaume Delisle's "Carte de la Louisiane et du Cours du Mississippi." While Delisle's 1703 map was a breakthrough in the cartography of the Mississippi , his updated version of 1718 was definitive and became the main source for all later maps of the river. The accuracy of Delisle's map accounts for its primacy, as he obtained his information directly from French explorers. One of the first printed maps to name Texas, it was also the first to reflect the discoveries of Hernando De Soto, of La Salle's lieutenant Henri de Tonti and of Louis De St. Denis. Delisle's map, which covers the area from Lake Champlain to New Mexico and south to Florida and Texas, was also a rather brazen political statement. The area that he labeled as Spanish Florida in 1703 now appeared as the French territory of Louisiana, stretching from the Rio Grande in the west to the Appalachians in the east. Delisle also pushed the boundary line of the English colonies closer to the Atlantic. Angry protests from the British and Spanish governments agains … [Click Below for Full Description]

BYSSHE, Edward.
London: printed for W. Taylor, 1718. 12mo, (163x98mm), [6],472p. some slight browning. Contemporary panelled calf, worn, backstrip tooled in gilt with a red leather label, the joints split and a small piece of leather lost from the tail of the backstrip. An early owner's inscription on the recto of the front free endleaf: 'Compleat R.G.J. P[ai]d S3.6d. RG Randolph Greenway Junr of Thavies Inn, Holbourne his book 5 Janry 1725.' while the verso carries the ownership inscription of Anna Eliz: Meyrick her book October 1766, which name also appears at the head of the title and page 1. Volume three only; however, Estc locates seven copies (only one in the British Isles) and notes 'imperfect, wanting volume 4.' A highly influential work of great historical importance that sums up the neo-classic tendencies of the time, the Art of English poetry was originally published in as a single volume in 1702. It was expanded to 2 volumes in the fifth edition of 1714, an edition published by Buckley and a conger of Churchill, Midwinter, Cliffe, Browne and Taylor; the latter alone being noted on the imprint of this continuation we offer. By the sixth edition of 1718, all the booksellers of the fifth edition, with the exception of Browne, had been replaced and the work had reverted to 2 volumes. Please note that the advised postage is based on an average book, if necessary the postage will be reduced to the correct amount and you will be notified by email. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Sthlm, J. L. Horrn, 1718. 8:o. (2),74 s. Tagen ur band. Den fina inlagan med goda marginaler. Helt obetydlig fläck på s. 55. Bra ex. Waller 5843. Första upplagan utkom 1712. På baksidan av titelbladet återfinns en rekommendationsskrivelse från 1711 av Collegium medicum genom Magnus Bromell. Linder adlades Lindestolpe 1719. Han var bl.a. verksam vid Wiksbergs källa som brunnsläkare. Han skrev en flora över trakten, en av våra äldsta lokalfloror, och gav ut en "färge-konst". Internationell ryktbarhet fick han genom sin doktoravhandling i Harderwijk i Holland vilken behandlar veneriska sjukdomar. Linder menade att sjukdomarna ursprungligen uppkommit genom smitta från babianer med hänvisning till uppgifter i Kiöpings resebeskrivning. Linder var också verksam som tillfällighetsskald och några kortare rimmerier återfinns även i denna bok, bl.a. på sista sidan.
