Wood, Thomas (1661-1722)
London: London: printed by W.B. for Richard Sare, at Gray's-Inn-Gate in Holborn. 1721., 1721. 3rd Edition . Leather. Very Good. Description: 8vo (8 × 5¼ in): t-p., 144, xvi, [8], 414, [10] p. (the last page contains ads). Contemporary polished calf, decorated in blind, morocco label. · Register: 8º: [pi]1 ^[pi]B-K^8 A^8 a^4 B-2D^8 2E^4. · Condition: Slight wear to head and tail of spine, but generally well-preserved; signed on the title-page "Dudley Hussey"; the preliminary treatise moderately browned and foxed. · Comments: Third edition, the last in the author's lifetime and the first to contain the "Treatise on the first principles of the law." In the main work, Wood describes the civil law on its own terms, according to the Insitutes of Justinian, and gives comparative notes on English law. The preliminary treatise is much more theoretical and synthetic. Wood was learned and industrious, but lacked literary genius; like his Institute of the Common Law, the main work dwells much on detail while neglecting broader principles. Perhaps the work prefixed to this edition was meant to answer that criticism. Despite his short-comings, Wood is credited with recognizing the contribution of the civil law to the form and content of the common law, without giving it undue primacy. Dudley Hussey was a lawyer active in Dublin in the second half of the eighteenth century; he was elected recorder (a judicial office) of that city in 1784 and died the following year. · References: Johnson 208 (3 copies); Worrall 66; Bridgman 368; Marvin 743; S&M 1:613(16); Holdsworth, HEL 12:425-427; EST … [Click Below for Full Description]

SENEX, John (1678-1740)
London: J. Senex, circa 1721. Copper-engraved map by John Harris, with full modern colour, printed on laid paper, in excellent condition apart from the loss of the lower right corner (well outside platemark) and a re- backed centerfold. 20 5/8 x 24 ¾ inches. A stunning plan of Rome, by the celebrated English mapmaker John Senex. A contemporary of Herman Moll, John Senex was one of the most successful mapmakers during the golden age of English cartography. He issued a series of atlases with John Maxwell and C. Price, and went on to re-issue Ogilby's road atlas. He was appointed Geographer to Queen Anne, and in 1728 was elected to the Royal Society. His beautiful maps are famed for their meticulous detail and ornate cartouches, and they remain some of the best examples of eighteenth century English mapmaking. Like Senex's other town plans, this stunning aerial view of Rome includes vignettes of the city's ancient and Renaissance landmarks. Indeed, all of the city's architectural treasures (as of 1715) are clearly illustrated. Anyone interested in present day Rome will be fascinated by the extent to which the city has and has not changed. The map is oriented with the north to the right. the Vatican holding the lower left corner. The map includes an extensive alphabetical index of 252 churches, palaces, monasteries, convents and colleges. There are inset views in each corner showing the Colosseum, St. Peter's cathedral, Trajan's Column and the Pyramid of Gaius Cestius. A truly enthralling historical document.

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.

One quarto volume in old calf. The condition of the text leaves and illustrations is very good overall, showing only occasional toning, soiling, or foxing. The volume will need to be rebound.

The Opera Omnia is a bibliographically complex work that is comprised of separately published works by Ruysch or of works addressed to him by others, either in early or reprinted editions. It was initially issued in two volumes in 1721 and later expanded to four volumes. This volume is comprised of twenty-two titles published at Amsterdam between 1721-1737 by Jansson & Waesberge. All are later editions. As this is volume two (- it is identified as such on the backstrip), it lacks the general title-page and index that were normally bound into the first volume of the Opera Omnia. The contents of this volume include: Sixteen Epistola anatomica problematica (1721-1737) written by various authors with Ruysch's replies; Frederici Ruyschii responsio ad Godefridi Bidloi, libellum, quem vindicias inscripsit (1721); Joannis Jacobi Rau responsio ad qualemcunque defensionem Frederici Ruischii, quam haud ita pridem edidit, pro septo scroti and Joannis Jacobi Rau epistola de inventoribus septi scroti, ad virum clarissimum Fredericum Ruyschium (1737); Adversariorum anatomico-medico-chir … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

Sturt, John; Fully Engraved Book
Engraven and Sold by John Sturt, London : 1721., 1721 pp. (9), 82. 12mo. in 6. [191 x 118 mm]. Fully engraved text on ninety-one plates, each with an illustration or large vignette. The handsomely decorated borders to each page appear to have been engraved and impressed separately. Full contemporary sombre black morocco binding; joints slightly worn. All edges gold. ** The Duke of Sussex's copy, with his engraved bookplate (Augustus Frederick, Prince, Duke of Sussex, 1773-1843); and with the additional ownerships of Henry White and Robert James Sells. From the Library of Edwin Wolf II. The text itself is ascribed to Laurence Howell (1664?-1720) by Halkett & Laing, but the greatest interest in this book comes from its engraved typography and decorations. John Sturt (1658-1730), was apprenticed at the age of 17 to Robert White, in whose manner he engraved a number of small portraits as frontispieces to several books. Becoming associated with John Ayres, he engraved the most important of that writing-master's books on calligraphy, and acquired celebrity for his skill in such work. The amazing skill of his engraving artistry still astonishes us. This work is probably somewhat scarcer than Sturt's more famous "Book of Common Prayer", especially in this (first?) state with single cherubs blowing horns at each side of the border of p. IX. Though some copies do have a list "Subscribers" pp. [83]-[85] - none is present here, nor does one seem to have ever been bound in the book. Maybe Sussex had some objection to some on the list?

V., Ebd. minimal berieben, kl. Tintenstelle am unteren Blockrand, insgesamt frisches Exemplar. - In 1718, Keill (1671 - 1721) published "Introductio ad veram Astronomiam, seu lectiones Astronomicae," a work which was reprinted, in the year 1721, at which period, at the request of the duchess of Chandos, he published a translation of this work in English, with emendations, under the title of "An Introduction to the true Astronomy; or, Astronomical Lectures, read in the astronomical school of the university of Oxford." The year in which he accomplished these literary labours was the last of his life; during the summer of 1721, he was seized with a violent fever, of which he died in the month of September, in the fiftieth year of his age. Besides the works we have mentioned, he published in 1715, an edition of Commandinus's Euclid, with additions. (Zitat nach Electricscotland) (Sprache: Lateinisch)

Richard Bradley was elected fellow of the Royal Society of London on 1 December 1720 and in 1724 was appointed to the chair of botany at Cambridge University. "Bradley was a prolific science writer ... His style was clear and readable and his reputation immense. Bradley's main scientific contributions were his studies on the movement of sap and on the sexual reproduction of plants" (D.S.B. II, p. 390). The present work is beautifully illustrated and deals for the larger part with zoological matter. Quite a number of reptiles and amphibians are shown such as: a turtle, rattle-snake, a West Indian serpent, a lizard, a camelian, a flying lizard from Ambon, frogs, the common English toad and the Surinam frog.

[Playing Cards]:
[Amsterdam: Nullenstein Lautje van Schotten, ca. 1721].. Fifty-two cards, plus title card and publisher's card, for a total of fifty-four cards. 2 x 3 1/2 inches each. 16mo. Each card backed on 19th- century heavy card. Bright and clean. Later ownership notation on verso of each card. Very good. In a morocco solander case. Second edition, after the first of the previous year. The first edition was issued with a title card reading: APRIL KAART OF KAART SPEL VAN MOMUS NAAR DE NIEUWSTE MODE. Cards in both editions consist of an allegorical image set above humorous couplets. While the images in each set are primarily the same, the couplets are entirely different. According to Hargrave, a booklet was also issued with these cards, but it is absent here. This ornamental set of playing cards in the French suit system (hearts, clubs, diamonds, spades) lampoons John Law's Mississippi Bubble scheme, the South Sea Company, and other parties engaged in the disastrous speculation. The publisher's card bears the image of a large cock, which also appeared on John Law's arms. "John Law's Mississippi Bubble scheme started about 1717, was at its height in 1719, and collapsed in 1720, so that Law fled from Paris. There are several allusions to the South Sea Company. On the three of spades, the three companies, the South Sea, the Mississippi, and the West Indian, sit side by side in a swing. On the four of spades, Madame la Petite [represented here as a black cat] is supposed to mean the wife of Thomas Knight, the cashier of the South Sea Company, who bought his shares in he … [Click Below for Full Description]

A fine complete copy of this great atlas, which besides the excellent maps and town plans, includes 393 pages of highly informative and historically important text. Shirley describes the genesis of the atlas: "Proposals for printing were advertised in the 'Post Boy' for October 1718, and the subscribers were invited by means of insertions in other newspapers subsequently. The atlas was claimed to be based on the best authors, particularly Cluverius, Breitius, Cellarius, Blaeu, Baudrand, Hoffman, the two Sansons, Lutys and other geographers.

"Let the young know that they will never find a more interesting, more instructive book than the patient himself" Baglivi - - A Collected Works of a Most Celebrated Italian Physician! - Second Venice Edition of the main works by Giorgio Baglivi (Dubrovnik 1668-1707 Rome) who echoed Sydenham's call for the practice to be reformed on the bedrock of careful and repeated bedside observations and disease patterns. Together with Boerhave, Baglivi stood in awe of Newton, and much of their physiological work was cast within mechanical framework of medical Newtonianism, although Baglivi insisted that theoretical presuppositions should put be aside when the doctor appears at the patient's bedside. The present work was first published at Lyon and reedited up to the 19th century. - Baglivi, who died prematurely at the height of his career, was a pupil and assistant of Malpighi. He held a chair of medical theory at the Collegio della Sapienza in Rome, and was a physician to the Pope. - - Baglivi was a leader in the Iatrophysical school, he originated the so-called "Solidar pathology" and devoted much time to experimental physiology. Baglivi was a strong advocate of specialism. His collected works contains his classic works including the study which differentiate between smooth and striated muscles and includes his tracts on the tarantula and the earthquake of 1703. - - - Hirsch-H.

Junker (Juncker), Johann
Halle, Orphanothrophel, 1721, KL.4°, (8), 704, (60) pp., Halbpergamenteinband der Zeit. Erste Auflage! Das vorliegende Werk enthält Kapitel über Kaiserschnitt, Bruchoperationen, Krebs, Augenoperationen, Steinoperationen, Zähne, Trepanation, plastische Chirurgie (mit Hinweis auf Tagliacozzi) und einen Abschnitt über Bluttransfusion. Johannes Junker (Juncker) (1697-1759), " war am 23. September 1679 in Lehndorff bei Giessen in ärmlichen Verhältnissen geboren, widmete sich seit 1697 in Halle dem Studium der Theologie und Philologie und wurde darauf als Lehrer am königlichen Pädagogium in Halle angestellt. Doch gab er diesen Beruf beeinflusst durch die Ausbreitung der Stahl'schen Lehren auf, begann 1707 das Studium der Medicin in Erfurt, und nachdem er nebenher, zur Bestreitung seiner Existenz, verschiedene Stellungen als Hauslehrer bekleidet hatte, kehrte er 1716 wieder nach Halle zurück, wurde hier 1717 Dr. med., erhielt dann die Stelle als Arzt am Waisenhause in Halle, bis er 1730 zum ord. Professor der Medicin an der dortigen Facultät ernannt wurde. In dieser Eigenschaft erwarb er sich das grosse Verdienst, zuerst den klinischen Unterricht in Halle eingeführt zu haben, wobei ihm seine Stellung als Arzt am Waisenhause sehr zu Statten kam. Nach langer ausserordentlicher eifriger Thätigkeit als Lehrer der medicinischen Klinik starb Junker am 21. October 1759. Er war einer derjenigen Apostel Stahl's, die am meisten durch ihre Schriften zur Verbreitung seiner Lehren beigetragen haben." Pagel, Hirsch III, pp.429-430 Blake 238. Wellcome III, 372. Zeis 98
