All edges tinted red. Endpapers renewed., This is a rare large paper copy.First edition of what is disputed to be either the best or the worst of early modern Chaucer scholarship. This book marks the last in a 200 year tradition of printing folio editions of Chaucer, and the first in the tradition of printing Chaucer in roman type rather than in blackletter. Due to Urry?s access to manuscripts (unavailable for over a century), his systematic consultation with a network of aristocrats and educated gentry, and his detailed descriptions of manuscript sources, critics have generally kept him in the notes of many current editions., Size : Folio, Contains frontis portrait of John Urry and also portrait of Geoffrey Chaucer, title page contains a vignette of Chaucer?s tomb, many engraved illustrations, elaborate head and tail pieces, and elaborate initials. , References : Bateson I 208; Graesse II 127; Maggs Bros Dec 1929 383, P. frontis, title, blank (2), portrait, (32), preface (13), contents (2), (3), 1-626, 1-81, eratta.

        A DEFENCE OF THE NEW-ENGLAND CHARTERS.

      London: Printed by W. Wilkins., . 1721 - 80pp. Woodcut decorations and letters. 12mo. Modern red morocco, spine gilt. Title- leaf and following two leaves dampstained, light scattered foxing, but still a very good copy. This copy bears the contemporary ownership signature of Stephen Sewall on the titlepage. Sewall was clerk of the Salem witchcraft trial court and his brother, Chief Justice Samuel Sewall, sat at the Salem witchcraft trials. First edition of this "notable contribution to colonial political thought, voicing the theory that, by reason of their contractual nature, these charters could not now, after the colonists had fulfilled their obligation by redeeming the wilderness, be abrogated and government restored to the Crown" (Howes). This and later editions of 1745 and 1765 no doubt provided fuel for the fire then well kindled. HOWES D554, "b." SABIN 21197. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 721/63. COHEN 6521 (Boston ed).

        OPERA OMNIA ANATOMICO-MEDICO-CHIRURGICA

      1721. Very Good. RUYSCH, Frederik. OPERA OMNIA ANATOMICO-MEDICO-CHIRURGICA. Huc usque edita. Quorum Elenchus pagina sequenti exhibetur. Cum figuris aeneis. Amstelodami, apud Janssonio-Waesbergios, 1721 [i.e. c. 1733]. 4 quarto volumes. Engraved title-page and portrait, 9 text illustrations, + 135 sheets of engraved illustrations. (The illustrations of jars and tableaux of skeletons in the Thesaurus anatomicus by Cornelius Huyberts are worthy of special note for their surreal combination of flowers, fishes, reptiles, seashells and delicate body parts.) This is a four-volume collection of separately published works by Ruysch or of works addressed to him by others; it also includes a life of Ruysch by J. F. Schreiber, a four-page table of contents (which lists only a portion of the works that comprise this set), and an index, dated 1725. The forty-four component works, in varying editions, were all printed by Jansson & Waesberge at Amsterdam from 1720-1733; each has a separate title-page and pagination. It represents a large portion of Ruysch's medical and scientific writings; and like almost every other copy of Opera Omnia, it varies in composition and completeness. A complete and detailed list of the contents of this set is available upon request. The condition of the text leaves and illustrations is very good overall, showing only occasional toning, soiling, or foxing. All four volumes will need to be rebound. All boards are detached and some of the bookblocks are split. Frederik Ruysch (1638- 1731), a Dutch anatomist and botanist, was professor of anatomy at Leyden and Amsterdam. He is notable for his method of injecting vessels and for his mastery of anatomical preparations (- the preparation and preservation of specimens). Ruysch showed his preparations in a series of popular exhibitions in small rented houses in Amsterdam. His "cabinet" caught the eye of Peter the Great, Tsar of Russia, who purchased it in 1717. Ruysch made a great number of discoveries in anatomy over the course of his long career; among them, the first description of bronchial blood vessels and vascular plexus of the heart, and the first description of the valves of the lymphatics. (DSB 12, pp. 39-41; Garrison and Morton, nos. 389 & 1099; Heirs to Hippocrates, pp. 219-223; Wellcome IV, pp. 596-601).

Pages become darker towards center of volume. Minimal chipping to edges. Overall, condition is very good.Benedetto Varchi was an Italian humanist, historian and poet. Born in Florence to a family that had originated at Montevarchi, he frequented the neoplatonic academy that Bernardo Rucellai organized in his garden, the Orti Oricellari. There, in spite of the fact that Rucellai was married to the elder sister of Lorenzo de Medici, republican ideals circulated, in the context of revived classical culture, that culminated in a plot in 1513 to subvert Medici rule in Florence. During this time, Varchi studied in Pisa to become a notary. With his return to Florence, he fought in defense of the temporarily revived Republic of Florence, during the siege by the Mediceans and imperialists in 1530, and was exiled after the surrender of the city. In 1536 he took part in Strozzi's unsuccessful expedition against Medicean rule, but seven years later Varchi was called back to Florence by Cosimo I who who gave him a pension and commissioned him to write a history of the city. His 16 volume Storia Fiorentina (collected here in one book) covers the period from 1527 to 1538, though it was so frank it was not published in Florence until 1721. This gorgeous volume compiles Varchis greatest work in one detailed volume, complete with illustrations and liner notes.

        La Monarchie des Solipses , traduite de l'Original Latin de Melchior Inchofer Jesuite. Avec des Remarques

      Ansterdam: n.p., 1721. Duodecimo, woodcut device on title; a very good copy in contemporary mottled calf gilt. First French edition of this satirical fantasy on the Jesuits, exaggerating their society as a separate world with a 'nouvelle forme de Gouvernement inconnue dans nôtre Hémisphere'. Scotti (1602-1669), an Italian from an influential patrician family and a Jesuit himself, had a turbulent career marred by a series of public quarrels with both the Order and the various universities at which he was professor. His Monarchie des Solipses (first published in Venice in 1645) takes the form of an 'ingenious satire against the Jesuits achieved by describing their society as the monarchy of Solipsia' (Gibson). Scotti's scathing account of a narcissistic society separated from the world struck a chord: indeed, his apparent invention of the word 'solipsist' to describe the Jesuits was popularly used as a derogatory term for some time after publication. The thoroughness of the work and the consistency of the allegory were widely praised, although its obscurity was a problem: 'Peu de lecteurs sont en état d'entendre le style obscur, plein d'allusions et de réticences, de cet ouvrage, qui, à part endroits curieux, n'est qu'une satire dictée par le dépit' (NBG). No doubt this accounts for the fact that this French translation is furnished with extensive notes clarifying and explaining the allusions.

First and only edition of a rare work on the computing of solar and lunar eclipses. The author describes and illustrates a new method using geometry (rule and compass) rather than arithmetic to calculate the data for eclipses for any location worldwide. The work further includes data for the 4 seasons, the dominical letter, the golden number and Easter. It is dedicated to Otto Tholen, "majoor der stad Embden", who also drew 4 of the illustrations.Meindert Waerma was a preacher of the Groningen Old Flemish congregation at Emden in East Friesland, Germany. The present work seems to be his only contribution to astronomy. Many extant copies lack the fold-out errata leaf.With contemporary owner's name on flyleaf, the errata corrected in manuscript and a note "Is van alle fauten gezuiverd" (all errors have been corrected). In very good condition, with only a faint water stain in the upper part of several leaves.

Over the centuries, many important scientific discoveries have been published in this journal. Famous contributing authors include Isaac Newton, Michael Faraday and Charles Darwin. In 1672, the journal published Newton's first paper New Theory about Light and Colours, which can be seen as the beginning of his scientific career.

The Anatomical and Medical papers; III. The Physiological papers; IV. The Philological papers.

There are in the same Part many articles contributed by associates of Newton such as John Keill, William Derham, Nicolas Bernoulli, Abraham de Moivre, Edmond Halley. Some of the mathematical papers are in Latin. Part II contains Anatomical and Medical papers amongst which some curious cases: A woman that lay six days covered with snow; A boy with horn - like excrescences growing on the fingers. Part III contains chapters on the weather, meteorology, pneumatics, hydrology, mineralogy, magnetics, botany including an account of a Tartarian plant called Ginseng, agriculture and zoology including an article on the opossum by Dr Tyson.

"Sein Ansehen im Inlande wie im Auslande infolge seiner Schriften war enorm [wegen seiner vielen innerkirchlichen Feinde jedoch auch heftig umstritten.] Sämmtliche Schriften van Espens "sind durch Decret vom 17. Mai 1734 auf den Index gesetzt worden. Trotzdem wurden sie gerade in Rom viel gebraucht Was die der Darstellung des positiven Rechts gewidmeten anbelangt, so gehören sie zu den besten seit dem Mittelalter, durch quellenmäßige Forschung, volle Beherrschung des Stoffes, ausgezeichnete Darstellung und reichen Inhalt; für die particulare Rechtsbildung namentlich in Belgien sind sie unübertroffen." Johann Friedrich von Schulte in ADB Band 39 (1895), S. 476-478. Es verwundert daher nicht, daß einer seiner berühmtesten Schüler der Trierer Weihbischof Johann Nicolaus von Hontheim war, der als Kirchenkritiker Febronius europaweit Resonanz erfuhr.

        A PHILOSOPHICAL TREATISE OF HUSBANDRY AND GARDENING: Being A New Method of Cultivating and Increasing all sorts of Trees, Shrubs, and Flowers. A Very Curious Work: Containing many Useful Secrets in Nature, for helping the Vegetation of Trees and Plants, and for fertilizing the most Stubborn Soils. Translated from The High-Dutch, with Remarks: and Adorned with Cuts. The whole Revised and Compared with the Original, together with a Preface, confirming this New Method, By RICHARD BRADLEY.

      London: P. Vaillant, and W. Mears and F. Clay 1721 - First English edition, translated, with additions, by Richard Bradley. "This was the first treatise on cuttings and graftings, and it made Agricola famous." (Hunt 452). Georg Andreas Agricola was a German doctor from Regensburg whose discoveries regarding plant propagation aroused significant interest at the beginning of the eighteenth century. In a book entitled NEU- UND NIE ERHÖRTER DOCH IN DER NATUR UND VERNUNFFT WOHLGEGEGRÃœNDETER VERSUCH DER UNIVERSAL VERMEHRUNG ALLER BÄUME, STAUDEN UND BLUMEN-GEWÄCHSE (1716-1717) he first published details of his methods, including the use of a plaster he called "vegetable mummy," to refute exaggerated claims made about his discoveries by another writer. Bradley prepared this English translation and added to it his own preface as well as a translation of the preface from the French edition. The text is illustrated with copies of the plates from the original German edition. These plates depict examples of the regenerative process described by Agricola along with the grafting techniques, tools and structures employed in the various operations. In publishing Agricola's discoveries in England Bradley was doing what he seemed to do best: publicizing the latest horticultural advances and theories at a moment close to their inception. Hunt 452; Henrey 411 Royal 4to (27 x 22 cm); (xxiv) + 300 + (iv) pp. + 22 plates (some folding) with 34 engravings. Original full calf, blind-stamped on upper and lower covers, with raised bands and gilt ruling on spine; lettering to spine faded; outer hinges partially split and spine ends worn; two old small library stamps on edges of title page.
