Friderico Cassebohm ... Halæ Magdeburgicæ Sumtibus Orphanotrophei, 1735.Guichard Joseph Duverney (1648-1730) "writings stand out because of their compactness, their wealth of content, their exemplary accuracy, and their precision of judgement. Investigation of the organ of hearing was one of his favorite fields of research. On his scientific journeys he thoroughly researched the hearing organ of fish. He summarized all his otological knowledge in the Traité de l'organe de Tome (Treatise on the Organ of Hearing) published in 1683. He wanted to publish a new enlarged edition, in particular adding new "curious observations" presented at the Royal Academy of Sciences in 1705." "Unfortunately, he was not able to finish this work. A second edition was published a few months after his death, but without any new details, and corresponding exactly to the 1683 edition. Reprinted many times and translated in particular into Latin, German and English, this treatise surpassed all expectations and became the reference for studying otology for many decades. "It is in publishing the work on the structure of the ear that Mr Duvemey laid down the foundations of the high reputation which he has enjoyed and always will enjoy amongst anatomists very different from those who are wont to find glory in proposing new explanations on parts which they do not know, Mr Duverney made it a rule to study the internal structure of organs and to describe them with the greatest precision before dealing with their uses and indicating their diseases. One must know the healthy state in order to make fruitful study of the diseased state. Guided by the spirit of method and illuminated by the most brilliant and solid genius Duverney collected into a small volume the most interesting truths." Duverney's treatise was a comparatively short work, but full of relevant data divided into three parts: anatomy, physiology, pathology and therapy." "The otological investigations of the following centuries attest to the impact Duverney's treatise had on the development of otology. Itard wrote in 1821 that "the works of J. G. Duverney occupy in the history of medicine a place no less honorable than that of Fallopio's research." In his history of otology published in 1833, Dann situated Duverney's treatise as a landmark between the second and third period in the history of otology." Albert Mudry, History of Otology (2015), pp.157-167Johann Friedrich Cassebohm (1699-1743) "Born in Halle, Cassebohm studied medicine in his native town, in Frankfurt and Paris, in particular under the supervision of Winslow. He occupied the chair of anatomy first at the University of Halle, then Frankfurt, and finally Berlin. Although he deserved credit for advancing the study of anatomy in general, it was his anatomical work on the organ of hearing that made him famous. The results of his research on the embryonic organ of hearing far surpassed those of his predecessors, including Valsalva and Morgagni. Until the time of Huschke and von Baer, Cassebohm's description of the development of the ear was unsurpassed. After the publication of his inaugural dissertation De aure interna (On the Internal Ear) in 1730, the complete results of his research on the ear were published in six treatises, the first four Tractatus quatuor anatomici de aure humana (Four anatomical treatises on the human ear), in 1734, were completed by, and bound with, the last two published in 1735, Tractatus quintus anatomicus de aure humana, cui accedit tractatus sextus anatomicus de aure monstri humani (Fifth anatomical treatise on the human ear, to which is added the sixth anatomical treatise on the ear of human monsters).' Cassebohm's treatises on the human ear included drawings by his student and anatomical preparator Dominus Johannes Zaccharias Petsche (?), which were the best of their time, surpassed only by those of Scarpa. They contained an abundance of new and amended information, much of which concerned the internal ear. The clarity of description and the compactness of expression were unequalled in Cassebohm's time. His work was unusually important to the entire field of otology, and ensured he would always have the rank of an outstanding researcher. This was proved by the critical Morgagni quoting his outstanding contemporary preferentially, and almost always in the highest terms. The content of Cassebohm's treatises followed the program outlined in the introduction: "I preferred, with all possible brevity and clarity, to record my observations in a small book, rather than to collate in one large volume, the work of others." The first treatise dealt with the temporal bone, the second with the external ear, the third with the tympanic cavity, called the "first cavity of the internal ear", and the fourth with the content of this tympanic cavity. The fifth treatise dealt with the labyrinth, and the sixth described a six-month-old fetus, a double monster, in which two organs of hearing were combined in one. The malformation primarily involved the tympanic cavity, which contained seven ossicles, all of which were in part grossly deformed. The labyrinth was within the normal limits of location, size, and shape. In his posthumous book on dissection, Cassebohm devoted a chapter to the preparation of the ear."

        Opera Omnia, Quatuor Voluminibus

      Hardback. Very Good. R Gosling and others, Fleet Street, London, 1730, first thus; four volumes, folio, engraved frontispiece to each volume, pp [iii], [ii], [iv], [3] to 224, [viii, being the index to Book I], 394, [xxxviii, being the index to Book II]; [iv], 564, [iv, being folding tables of creditors], [xxviii, being the volume index]; [vi], 586, [xlvi, being the volume index]; [i], 707, [xxviii, being the volume index], [i, bookseller's catalogue]. Full contemporary calf gilt, labels gilt; some wear to the bindings, generally light, but including cracking of some hinges (cosmetic only, not affecting the binding overall which remains firm and tight); lacks the spine label to vol III and with that to v ol I slightly defaced; very light occasional browning but otherwise an exceptionally crisp and clean copy, firmly bound. Each volume has the armorial bookplates of Charles Bathurst of Lydney Park (MP and government minister in various roles from 1790 to 1823). Francis Bacon, Viscount St Alban, 1561-1626, served as both Lord Chancellor and Attorney General under James VI/I between 1613 and 1621. His range of interests and writings was extremely wide and his analytical and sceptical approach and his insistence on careful observation led to his being called by Voltaire the father of the scientific method. His prodigious literary output divides broadly into three categories - scientific, religious and philosophical, and juridical. NOTE: these four volumes together weigh a little over 10kg and so may require additional charges for carriage, subject to ultimate destination and mode of transport.

Lit: Nijhoff/Van Hattum 53; Waller 343; Schotel, Arcadia's"."Na de verschijning in 1730 van de Zuid-Hollandse tocht, maakt Bruin (1671-1732) een soortgelijk gedicht over Noord-Holland. Hij draagt het op aan Andries en Gerrit Schoemaker. In de voorrede deelt hij mee dat het plan hiervoor enkele jaren geleden was ontstaan en dat hij en Andries Schoemaker het zouden samenstellen. Bruin heeft het uiteindelijk `voltooid' en heeft er geen doorlopend gedicht van gemaakt - zoals het Zuid-Hollandse deel - maar een `samenspreeking' tussen vier `godvruchtige persoonen'.

        Paradys verlooren. Heldendicht in tien boeken. Vertaald uit het Engels. Haarlem, Geertruyd van Kessel, 1728.

      "4º: * 4 A-3N 4, gepag.:[8] 472 pp. Titelpagina in zwart en rood gedrukt. Contemp. half perkament, rug boven- en onderaan beschadigd. Scherpbier, Milton in Holland. A study in the literary relations of England and Holland before 1730 (Amsterdam 1933); Smit (Kalliope) I, p.108, II, p.261-279; Moderne encyclopedie der wereldliteratuur (Hilversum 1967) V, p.484 - 490"."De eerste Nederlandse vertaling van Miltons beroemde epos 'Paradise Lost', dat gaat over de zondeval van de eerste mensen (eerste druk 1667, tweede herziene uitgave 1674). Spectatorschrijver Addison meende dat dit epos de 'Ilias' van Homerus en de 'Aeneis' van Vergilius naar de kroon stak. W.A.P. Smit noemt het werk het absolute hoogtepunt van het Renaissancistisch-klassisistische epos, niet alleen in Engeland, maar in geheel West-Europa. Van Zanten (Leiden 1658 - Haarlem 1750) was arts en later tevens doopsgezind leraar in Haarlem. Behalve deze Milton-vertaling (in rijmloze verzen net als het origineel, wat volgens Scherpbier een bijzondere prestatie was voor een dilettant, en een groot waagstuk tevens, in een land waar een gedicht pas een gedicht was als het rijmde) heeft hij praktisch geen poëzie gepubliceerd. Wel is een aantal gedichten en vertalingen uit het , 523, , Latijn, Engels en Italiaans in handschrift bewaard gebleven, evenals het manuscript van 'Paradys verlooren'. Het dichtwerk is opgedragen aan de Haarlemse regent Willem Six (Haarlem 1692 - Florence 1757). Voor elk van de tien boeken staat een korte, wél berijmde inhoudsopgave van Van Zantens plaatsgenoot, de dichter Pieter Langendijk. Was Langendijk degene, op wiens aansporing Van Zanten enkele jaren nadat hij zijn vertaalarbeid had voltooid tot publicatie was overgegaan, Willem Six had hem, zo blijkt uit de opdracht, voortdurend aangemoedigd om de vertaling te voltooien. Enkele jaren later moest Six het land uit vluchten wegens het grote sodomieschandaal van 1731. Vandaar ook zijn overlijden in Florence."

        A New and Correct Map of the World, Laid Down According to the Newest Discoveries, and From the Most Exact Observations

      H. Moll, D. Midwinter, T. Bowles, P. Overton, London 1730 - Copper-engraved map, on four joined sheets, with original outline colour. Marginal foxing, re-margined left and right margins, reinforced center fold, repaired tear bottom margin, toning at center fold. A magnificent and monumental World map, showing the globe in the early days of the Age of Enlightenment and European Imperialism This fascinating global perspective, featured in double-hemispheres, depicts the latest state of knowledge of the world in the first quarter of the eighteenth-century. The delineation of Europe, South America, and southern Asia is quite sophisticated, while the depiction of regions further beyond suggests only fleeting exploration or outright speculation. Most of the Arctic is labelled "Parts Unknown," and the American West is largely conjectural, featuring California as an island, the most beloved of cartographic misconceptions. Lands depicted to the east of the Spice Islands are scarcely contemplated, "Iesso," or Hokkaido, is shown to be part of Siberia, and eastern Australia is left as a complete enigma, decades before the voyages of James Cook. This map was intended to satiate the intense English interest in maritime exploration and commerce. The oceans within the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn feature highly detailed hydrological information, most notably the direction of the ocean currents, that Moll gleaned from his esteemed contemporary Sir Edmond Halley. Evincing the scientific curiosity of the Enlightenment, each corner of the map features very detailed and elegant astronomical diagrams, including; the planetary systems according to both Ptolemy (geo-centric) and Copernicus (helio-centric) (with the addition of the path of a comet), the appearance of the Sun according to the Jesuit intellectual Athanasius Kircher; and the Appearance of the Moon according to Jean-Dominique Cassini. The five known planets are depicted as well, Saturn with its ring and Jupiter with four moons. The magnificent title cartouche, dedicated to George I, features classical sea gods, prefiguring the power of the Royal Navy that would allow the British to build a global empire later in the century. The present map was part of Herman Moll's magnificent folio work, a New and Compleat Atlas. Moll was the most important cartographer working in London during his era, a career that spanned over fifty years. His origins have been a source of great scholarly debate; however, the prevailing opinion suggests that he hailed from the Hanseatic port city of Bremen, Germany. Joining a number of his countrymen, he fled the turmoil of the Scanian Wars for London, and in 1678 is first recorded as working there as an engraver for Moses Pitt on the production of the English Atlas. It was not long before Moll found himself as a charter member of London's most interesting social circle, which congregated at Jonathan's Coffee House at Number 20 Exchange Alley, Cornhill. It was at this establishment that speculators met to trade equities (most notoriously South Sea Company shares). Moll's coffeehouse circle included the scientist Robert Hooke, the archaeologist William Stuckley, the authors Jonathan Swift and Daniel Defoe, and the intellectually-gifted pirates William Dampier, Woodes Rogers and William Hacke. From these friends, Moll gained a great deal of privileged information that was later conveyed in his cartographic works, some appearing in the works of these same figures. Moll was highly astute, both politically and commercially, and he was consistently able to craft maps and atlases that appealed to the particular fancy of wealthy individual patrons, as well as the popular trends of the day. In many cases, his works are amongst the very finest maps of their subjects ever created with toponymy in the English language.

The first attempt at a biography of playwright and author William Congreve (1670-1729), attributed by Ralph Straus in The Unspeakable Curll, to historian and dramatist John Oldmixon, a regular contributor to Curll's publications. The Memoirs are part factual, part spurious and part scandalous. Included is a copy of Congreve's will, numerous inaccurate facts about his affairs, a reprinting of his novel Incognita, accounts of Dryden's family and funeral by a Mrs. Elizabeth Thomas ("Corinna") and a lewd affidavit about four ladies which has no connection to Congreve or Dryden. There are also unrelated attacks on Pope and John Dennis. When news got out about Curll's intention to publish the first memoir of the great Congreve, efforts were made, to no avail, to suppress its publication. The "H. Curll" name in the advertisements is for Henry Curll, Edmund's son, who took over the business when his father was serving time in prison for libel. Contemporary bookplate on the front paste-down of Robert Lord Clive.

Included is a copy of Congreve's will, numerous inaccurate facts about his affairs, a reprinting of his novel Incognita, accounts of Dryden's family and funeral by a Mrs. Elizabeth Thomas ("Corinna") and a lewd affidavit about four ladies which has no connection to Congreve or Dryden. There are also unrelated attacks on Pope and John Dennis. When news got out about Curll's intention to publish the first memoir of the great Congreve, efforts were made, to no avail, to suppress its publication. The "H. Curll" name in the advertisements is for Henry Curll, Edmund's son, who took over the business when his father was serving time in prison for libel. Contemporary bookplate on the front paste-down of Robert Lord Clive. Edges rubbed; two abrasions on the front free endpaper; very good copy. Rare.

Friderico Cassebohm . Halæ Magdeburgicæ Sumtibus Orphanotrophei, 1735. - - Guichard Joseph Duverney (1648-1730) "writings stand out because of their compactness, their wealth of content, their exemplary accuracy, and their precision of judgement. Investigation of the organ of hearing was one of his favorite fields of research. On his scientific journeys he thoroughly researched the hearing organ of fish. He summarized all his otological knowledge in the Traité de l'organe de Tome (Treatise on the Organ of Hearing) published in 1683. He wanted to publish a new enlarged edition, in particular adding new "curious observations" presented at the Royal Academy of Sciences in 1705." - "Unfortunately, he was not able to finish this work. A second edition was published a few months after his death, but without any new details, and corresponding exactly to the 1683 edition. Reprinted many times and translated in particular into Latin, German and English, this treatise surpassed all expectations and became the reference for studying otology for many decades. "It is in publishing the work on the structure of the ear that Mr Duvemey laid down the foundations of the high reputation which he has enjoyed and always will enjoy amongst anatomists; very different from those who are wont to find glory in proposing new explanations on parts which they do not know, Mr Duverney made it a rule to study the internal structure of organs and to describe them with the greatest precision before dealing with their uses and indicating their diseases. One must know the healthy state in order to make fruitful study of the diseased state. Guided by the spirit of method and illuminated by the most brilliant and solid genius Duverney collected into a small volume the most interesting truths." Duverney's treatise was a comparatively short work, but full of relevant data divided into three parts: anatomy, physiology, pathology and therapy." - "The otological investigations of the following centuries attest to the impact Duverney's treatise had on the development of otology. Itard wrote in 1821 that "the works of J. G. Duverney occupy in the history of medicine a place no less honorable than that of Fallopio's research." In his history of otology published in 1833, Dann situated Duverney's treatise as a landmark between the second and third period in the history of otology." Albert Mudry, History of Otology (2015), pp.157-167 - - Johann Friedrich Cassebohm (1699-1743) "Born in Halle, Cassebohm studied medicine in his native town, in Frankfurt and Paris, in particular under the supervision of Winslow. He occupied the chair of anatomy first at the University of Halle, then Frankfurt, and finally Berlin. Although he deserved credit for advancing the study of anatomy in general, it was his anatomical work on the organ of hearing that made him famous. The results of his research on the embryonic organ of hearing far surpassed those of his predecessors, including Valsalva and Morgagni. Until the time of Huschke and von Baer, Cassebohm's description of the development of the ear was . [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        pl. LVII "untitled

      - An extremely detailed hand-colored engraved print by Moses Harris (1730-1788) from his sweeping series "The Aurelian: A Natural History of English Moths and Butterflies", published in London by Henry G. Bohn in 1840. This print measures 14” x 10 1/2”. Harris, a English entomologist, artist, and engraver, was one of the leading entomologists of the 18th century, and The Aurelian is undoubtedly the greatest work on British butterflies and moths of the period. The highly artistic and decorative engravings accurately portray figures of butterflies and moths, along with many of their larvae and pupae. Moses Harris began his study of entomology at the age of twelve, under the guidance of his uncle who was a distinguished entomologist and member of the Aurelian Society. The Aurelian Society was founded in 1742 and dedicated to the study of insects. Harris eventually became secretary of the society. He amassed a private collection of specimens for two decades before producing The Aurelian: A Natural History of English Moths and Butterflies, first published in 1766. This magnificent work contains 41 beautiful color plates which include the ecology, descriptions, life cycles, and hostplants of the moths and butterflies he had found in England. Overall in very good condition with some foxing and staining.

He also explained the manufactures then in existence and pointed out means for the development of commercial relations. He published similar works on other countries, drawing information from the notes of other missionaries." (Source: Smith, Ignatius. "Jean-Baptiste Labat." The Catholic Encyclopedia. Vol. 8.

        Museum sinicum in quo Sinicae linguae et litteraturae ratio explicatur

      St. Petersburg: Typographia Academiae Imperatoriae, 1730. The First Book on the Chinese Language Published in EuropeBayer, Theophilus [Gottlieb] Siegfried (1694-1738). Museum sinicum in quo sinicae linguae et litteraturae ratio explicatur. 2 vols. in 1, 8vo. [22], 145, [1], 190; [2], 372, [2, including errata]pp. 23 numbered plates plus 52 full-page text engravings. St. Petersburg: Ex typographia Academiae Imperatoriae, 1730. 198 x 123 mm. Old vellum, title stamped on spine. Minor offsetting from plates, but fine otherwise. Embossed stamp of the British and Foreign Bible Society on front endpaper. First Edition of the first book on the Chinese language published in Europe. Bayer, a classical scholar, was professor of Greek and Roman antiquities at St. Petersburg?s Academy of Sciences between 1726 and 1737. At the age of nineteen he was ?overwhelmed with a desire to learn Chinese? and spent the next seventeen years studying and collecting everything he could find relating to the language with the intent of ?[making] up some kind of dictionary and some introduction to the rules of the Chinese language and to Chinese literature? (quoted in Spence, Chinese Roundabout: Essays in History and Culture, p. 3). This was an extremely difficult task, as the Jesuits, who were the first Europeans to gain a foothold in China, had a quasi-monopoly on Sino-European relations and thus had a proprietary interest in keeping information about the Chinese language to themselves. ?In the course of time, however, a few Jesuits visiting Europe came to give away some bits of the secret, and two or three copies of handwritten missionaries? dictionaries had found their way into great libraries? (Lundbaek, p. 2). Bayer made use of what information he could find to compile his Museum sinicum, which included not only his attempt at a Chinese dictionary and grammar, but a 145-page introduction containing a history of Western Chinese studies up to the time of writing. "There are two things that need to be said [about the Museum sinicum]: It was not possible to learn to speak or read Chinese from Bayer?s book; secondly, Bayer was perfectly and painfully aware of that fact and states it many times in his book. "Why then publish it? Bayer felt, and he was supported in this feeling by his old friend the great Lacroze in Berlin, as well as by his new friend Theophanes, the learned archbishop of Novgorod, that it was his duty to do so. There were no books about the Chinese language on the market. He had had access to information about that language because he had happened to study in the Royal Library in Berlin, where some handwritten material about the Chinese language was kept. It was not very much and in spite of all his endeavors, Bayer certainly did not come to ?know Chinese.? But he felt that he simply had to arrange the information he had gathered together, to collect his thoughts and sit down and write a text that could be printed and published, thus making it possible for others to go on with his work" (Lundbaek, p. 5).

        Journal d'un voyage sur les costes d'Afrique et aux Indes d'Espagne; avec une description particuliere de la riviere de la Plata, de Buenosayres, & autres lieux; commencé en 1702 & fini en 1706.Amsterdam, "Aux dépens de la Compagnie", 1730. 12mo. With an extra-added engraved plate serving as a frontispiece. Without the map that appears in a few copies of the 1723 issue and very rarely in the present issue. 18th-century sprinkled calf, gold-tooled spine.

      Borba de Moraes I, p. 430 ("excellent book on the subject'"); JCB 453; Sabin 36685 note; cf. STCN (1 copy of the other Amsterdam 1730 issue). Reissue with a new title-page of the 1723 "Amsterdam" edition (perhaps also the same as the first edition printed in Rouen in 1723) of an interesting anonymous report of a slaving voyage, written by a Frenchman who sailed from France to Africa and Buenos Aires aboard a slave ship belonging to the ''Asiento" Company, which was entitled to transport slaves to South America by treaty with Spain. It is sometimes attributed to the French theologian and physician Pierre Le Lorrain de Vallemont (1649-1721). It gives a detailed account of the slaves, describing the way they looked and dressed, and gives an elaborate report on the slave trade in Africa, Brazil (the author visited Rio de Janeiro and Bahia) and Buenos Aires. The whole voyage is described very minutely, the author reporting his observations every day.The ship left on 14 July 1702, and arrived on 5 September in Africa, where they stayed for 5 days, before sailing further to Loango, where the slaves were traded. On 20 August, they arrived at Buenos Aires. On 30 October 1705, the author started his voyage back to France, where he arrived in March 1706. With contemporary manuscript inscription. In good condition. The chemicals used by the binding finisher have slightly damaged the surface of the leather, but the binding remains structurally good. A fascinating account of the voyage of a slave ship and the slaves in it.

        Himmlisches Freuden-Mahl der Kinder Gottes auff Erden. Oder Geistreiche Gebete, so vor, bey und nach der Beicht und heiligem Abendmahl, kräfftig zu gebrauchen

      Lüneburg: Cornelius Johann Stern, 1730. Long 12mo (150 x 67 mm). [24], 621, [3] pp. Engraved frontispiece, additional engraved title, letterpress title in red and black, 10 engraved emblematic plates, the engravings by Johann-Benjamin Brühl. Bericht an die Buchbinder, listing the plates, at end. Contemporary German "sharkskin" (rayfish) binding, covers with mounted silver frames with repoussé decoration of leafy and geometrical strapwork, shells, and eight small heads, two fore-edge clasps with repoussé decor including a putto playing a flute, inner clasps with mark SMR and date 1734, gilt edges, Dutch-gilt floral pastedown endpapers.*** A luxury copy of a popular devotional manual and hymnal. First printed in 1685, Rittmeyer's "Heavenly Repast of Joy" enjoyed lasting success. The author (identified in this edition at the end of the foreword) was a preacher from Helmstadt. All editions were illustrated, using the heart motif whose origins lie in the 16th-century religious emblems of Antoine Wierix's Cor Iesu Amanti Sacrum. This edition appears to be the first illustrated by the Leipzig engraver Johann-Benjamin Brühl (1691-1763) (the previous edition from this press, published in 1628, had engravings by A. Reinhard). The engraved title shows Jesus dining with the apostles, surrounded by humble onlookers. The frontispiece is a Crucifixion, with mourners below including Old Testament personnages (Adam and David), each identified by an engraved caption. The engravings show the heart as a symbol of the soul, and its progress under the influence of the infant Jesus, whose exact actions are succinctly described in their titles: Jesus knocks on the heart (containing a closed door); holding a lantern illuminating rats and scorpions, Jesus examines the heart; Jesus, sweeping, cleans the heart, etc. Engraved above each heart vignette is a Biblical quote, and below a German verse caption. The work was a staple of the Stern press in Lüneburg from 1728 to the late 1760s. Known as galuchat in French, "sharkskin" was often in fact rayfish skin. It is far more durable than the shagreen used in 19th-century imitations, and was used for luxury bindings in Germany, often in combination with silver onlays. This edition not found in OCLC; KVK refers to an entry in the Union Catalog Southwest Germany, location not given.
