         Sethos : histoire ou vie, tirée des monumens anecdotes de l'ancienne Egypte, Traduite d'un Manuscrit Grec. 2-vol. set (Complete)

      Hypolite-Louis Guerin, Paris 1731 - 24mo (6 x 3 1/2"). [2], xxii, 562, xpp (Vol. 1); 628pp (Vol. 2). Original full spotted calf, with gold lettering and tooling to spine. Raised bands. Marbled endpapers. Publisher's device on title pages. Decorative headpieces and initials. Ribbon markers. When first published in 1731, Jean Terrasson's fantasy novel "Sethos" knew a real success and popularized the notion of "Egyptian mysteries." Terrasson presents the story of Sethos as a work of fiction that he says he drew from a Greek manuscript of an unknown author, who himself would have drawn from Egyptian sources. In arguing that its composition is far before the deciphering of hieroglyphics, Egyptologists do not give it any historical value. Terrasson helped to create the mystified image of a fictional ancient Egypt, the mother of science and knowledge, based on uncritical stories by Diodorus Siculus, an image to which several other writers had contributed before the deciphering of hieroglyphs, like Athanasius Kircher. This image was at the origin of pseudo-scientific theories, such as Afrocentrism, claiming that Greek knowledge comes from Egypt. This fiction elided Masonic and ancient Egyptian ritual, and served as an inspiration for Mozart and Schikaneder's Magic Flute. Bindings partly rubbed, with some abrasion to leather at head and tail of spines. First volume with previous owner's name on inside of front free endpaper, and at verso of fly leaf. Closed tear at lower half of pages 513 to 526. Contemporary previous owner's signature at lower margin of last leaf. Title of second volume with previous owner's stamp dated 1792 along fore-edge. Text in French. Binding in overall good-, interior in good to very good condition. About the author: Jean Terrasson (1670-1750), often referred to as the Abbé Terrasson, was a French priest, author and member of the Académie française. The erudite Antoine Terrasson was his nephew.

         Descriptiones tubulorum marinorum : in quorum censum relati lapides caudæ cancri Gesneri, & his similes : Belemnitæ, eorum que alueoli, secundum dispositionem musei Kleiniani : addita est Dissertatio epistolaris de pilis marinis : cum figuris.

      Knochium, Danzig 1731 - A Very Good copy of the RARE TO THE MARKET FIRST EDITION, FIRST PRINTING of Descriptiones Tabulorum Marinorum : In Qvorum Censum Relati Lapides Caudæ Cancri Gesneri, & his similes; Belemnitæ ; Eorumqve Alveoli. Secundum Ddispositionem Musei Kleiniani : addita est Dissertatio epistolaris de pilis marinis : cum figuris; complete with all 10 illustrations to the rear. Jacob Theodor Klein (1685 - 1759) was a German Botanist, Zoologist, Mathematician, Historian, and Jurist, as well as a Diplomat in service to Polish King August II the Strong. Klein's work in natural science was highly-regarded, and he was awarded membership in a number of scientific societies, including in The President, Council and Fellows of the Royal Society of London for Improving Knowledge (generally referred to as the "Royal Society" -- a Society which still exists and the purpose of which is to promote science and its benefits, recognize excellence in science, support outstanding science, provide scientific advice of policy, foster international and global cooperation, and to provide education and public engagement) and in the Danzig Research Society, a highly-regarded Society founded in Danzig by Daniel Gralath (1708 - 1767), Jacob Theodor Klein's son-in-law. Notable members included Nathanael Matthaeus von Wolf, Michael Christoph Hanow, Gottfried Lengnich, Johann Jacob Mascov, and Daniel Gabriel Farenheit. While the book 117 WorldCat member libraries in various forms, WorldCat reveals only 21 copies of the 1731 first edition held in book form. A well-received and notable work, at least 31 editions were published beginning with the first edition in 1731. Given that WorldCat shows relatively few copies from the 1700s being held in book form -- and only 21 copies of the first edition, first printing being held in book form -- we conclude that the first edition was not published in large numbers. Not only being SCARCE, this copy has a REMARKABLE PROVENANCE having belonged to Charles Atwood Kofoid (1865-1947) the prominent American zoologist known for his collection and classification of many new species of marine protozoans which established marine biology on a systematic basis. An interesting Biographical Memoir of Kofoid by Richard B. Goldschmidt was published by the National Academy of Sciences. His bookplate graces the volume's front pastedown. The book thereafter belonged to John Sinkankas, a noted gemologist, gem carver and gem faceter, as well as the author of numerous books and articles on minerals and gemstones. Sinkankas also was a bookseller and bibliographer of rare books. His signed bookplate also is affixed (with that of Charles Atwood Kofind) to the front pastedown. A REMARKABLE COPY OF A SCARCE AND NOTABLE BOOK. IMAGES AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

First editions of Achilles, The Universal Passion, Gustavus Vasa, Edward and Eleonora and The Tragedy of Tragedies, second edition of Woman's Revenge and the third edition of The Toy-Shop (full details below). A collection of seven plays, including four comedies, two tragedies and an opera, owned by the actor and playwright David Garrick (1717-1779), with his bookplate to the front pastedown. Garrick moved to London in 1737 and wrote his first play, Lethe, in 1740. With a contemporary handwritten list of contents to the first blank (not in Garrick's hand). The works include Fielding's Tragedy of Tragedies, a reworking of his scarce 1730 work Tom Thumb, and his only play to feature a frontispiece; which is after his friend, William Hogarth. This collection also includes Brooke's tragedy, Gustavus Vasa, which was the first play to be banned by the Licensing Act of 1737, and The Toy-Shop, a satirical farce by Robert Dodsley, with whom Garrick had correspondence in later years.Garrick had an extensive library "of play-texts which served both to enhance Drury Lane's repertory and to satisfy his bibliomania" (ODNB). In 1780 his estate bequeathed 1,300 individual and collected plays to the British Museum; which constituted 90 per cent of all English plays in the Museum until the arrival of King George III's Library in 1828. This work was not donated at that time however, with a note marking the purchase of the book during the sale of Garrick's library by "Mr Saunders in Fleet Street" on the 30 April 1823, to the second blank.a) Dodsley, Robert, The Toy-Shop, A Dramatick Satire, printed for Lawton Gilliver, 1735;b) [Fielding, H.] The Tragedy of Tragedies, J.

         The present state of the Cape of Good-Hope: or, a particular account of the several nations of the Hottentots . Together with a short account of the Dutch settlement at the Cape. Written originally in High German, by Peter Kolben . Done into English . by Mr. Medley .

      London Printed for W. Innys 1731 - First edition in English. 2 volumes, 8vo., 2 engraved frontispieces, folding engraved map, 28 plates, 2 folding. Contemporary tree calf gilt, spines in six compartments, red and green labels to second and fourth, others with nautical gilt motif, gilt dividers, light wear, numbering labels renewed, an excellent set. A most attractive example of one of the most important early accounts of the Cape. "It contains the earliest list of South African animals . a full account of the government of the country, with detailed descriptions of the various settlements, and a mass of information respecting . the native races" (Mendelssohn). Peter Kolbe (1675–1726) (also referred to as Kolb) was sent to the Cape of Good Hope with letters of introduction from Nicolaas Witsen, mayor of Amsterdam, with a mandate to compile a comprehensive description of South Africa and for astronomical and surveying research. Kolbe was appointed in 1705 as the first official astronomer in South Africa and worked at the Cape between 1705 and 1713, providing a detailed account of day-to-day life at the Cape, also describing the geography, climate, flora and fauna, followed by an accurate study of the Hottentots, covering their language, religion, lifestyle and customs. Kolbe's account was first published in German in Nuremberg in 1719. Although his ethnological views are very much of their time, the work is important for showing us the interaction of of ethnic groups at the Cape in the early eighteenth century and provides a starting point for ethnological investigations into African history and culture (See Bloomsbury Dictionary of Eighteenth century German Philosophers).

Erste Ausgabe. 2 Teile in 2 Bänden.

      Würzburg, Alma Universitatis Juliae (Vol. I: Engmann; Vol. II: Rausch), 1729 (d. i. 1731). - 10 Bl., 936 S., 31 Bl., 1 Bl., 1004 S., 39 Bl. Mit zusammen 2 gest. Titelvignetten, 14 Kupfertafeln (7 gefaltet), 1 gefalt. Stammtafel, 1 Plan, zahlr. Textkupfern (meist Münzkupfer) und einigen gestochenen Vignetten; Titeleien in Schwarz und Rot. 2° (31,5 x 20 cm). Schweinslederbände (auf Holzdeckeln) mit reicher Blindprägung, auf 5 Bünden und mit jeweils 2 intakten Messing-Leder-Schließen. Etwas berieben und fleckig; insges. ca. 30 Bl. mit schwachem Wasserfleck im weißen Rand; Bd I mit sehr geringen Wurmfraßspuren am oberen Kapital und hs. Besitzvermerk auf Titelei (datiert 1809); Titelei von Bd II knapp beschnitten, Schmutztitel hier mit kleinen hinterlegten Fehlstellen; Innengelenke beider Bände mit schmalen Papierstreifen verstärkt. Provenienz: Auf Innenspiegel von Bd I mit dem gest. Wappenexlibris "Ex bibliotheca Theodori Karajan" - es handelt sich um den Historiker und Germanisten Theodor Georg Ritter von Karajan (1810-1873), dem Urgroßvater des nachmaligen Dirigenten Herbert von Karajan. Die reiche barocke Blindprägung der Einbände mit floralen Rollen- und Plattenstempeln, die Verstärkung der Innengelenke, die Beschneidung der Titelei sowie die signifikant frischeren Abzüge der Kupfer im Band II bieten Raum für verschiedene Vermutungen: - die beiden Bände sind nicht zeitgleich und/oder nicht in derselben Auflagenhöhe erschienen; - die Buchblöcke und die Einbände sind erst später (im 19. Jhdt?) zueinander gekommen, denn diese sind anscheinend 100 Jahre älter als der Inhalt. Im 20. Jhdt wurde zusätzlich ein marmorierter Pappschuber angefertigt. Die Datierung der Erscheinung dieses Werkes muß, anders als im Impressum mit 1729 angegeben, 1731 lauten, denn: "Anno 1730. die 9. Februarii post horam septimam matuatinam (.) placidissime in Christo obdormivit Perillustris Dominus, Joannes Georgius ab Eckhart". Das heißt, das Werk erschien unvollendet und posthum, worauf schon Jöcher (vol. II, 269f) hinweist. Kein in der Literatur, im Handel oder in öffentlichen Sammlungen beschriebenes Exemplar hat diesselbe Kollation mit der angegebenen Anzahl von Tafeln wie das vorliegende, was zusammen mit der Frische der Abzüge ein weiterer Hinweis sein mag, dass vol. II nicht zusammen mit vol. I bzw. nicht in allen Exemplaren mit derselben Tafelanzahl erschienen ist. Die Tafeln im Übrigen stammen von Johann Salver (1670-1738; vgl. Thieme/B. 29, 360). J. G. Eccard (1674 in Duingen bei Hildesheim - 1730 Würzburg), Historiker, ab 1694 Mitarbeiter/Sekretär von Leibniz, auf dessen Betreiben seit 1704 Professor für Geschichte in Helmstedt, nach Leibniz' Tod 1716 Übernahme von dessen Stelle als Historiograph und Bibliothekar in Hannover, floh 1723, vermutlich wegen Schulden, vor der Verfolgung durch die Justiz nach Würzburg, konvertierte zum Katholizismus und reüssierte erneut als Bibliothekar, Archivar und Historiker. Im vorliegenden Werk - es blieb unvollständig und der Berichtszeitraum reicht bis zur Regierungszeit Konrads I - gibt Eccard in der Behandlung des weitgefassten Themas ein Beispiel seiner quellkritischen Methode, die insgesamt seine Bedeutung als Historiker auch bei seinen zahlr. anderen Schriften begründet.

         Prima philosophiae. Pars logia, moralia & metaphisica. Scripta a Jacobo de la Bourdonnaye

      - 3 parties en un volume, [2] Rhedonis [Rennes], avril-novembre 1731, in-4, 3 parties en un volume, [2] ff, [1] ff. blanc, 288-188-196-[1] pp, grand placard dépliant in fine, basane havane de l'époque, dos à nerfs et fleuronné, pièce de titre rouge, tranches mouchetées rouges, Joli manuscrit signé Jacques-Anne de La Bourdonnaye de Bois-Hulin (ou Bois-Hullin, Boishulin), procureur général syndic des États de Bretagne ; il était le père de Anne-François Augustin de La Bourdonnaye (1747-1793), général de la Révolution. Le cachet aux armes de la famille, "de gueules, à trois bourdons d'argent posés en pal", a été apposé à la cire noire et rouge sur les contreplats. À la fin est relié un placard imprimé in-folio, replié, commençant par la locution latine abrégée Deo optimo maximo ("à Dieu très bon, très grand") et titré Theses Physicae ; il s'agit d'un résumé des 10 thèses présentées par Jacques-Anne de La Bourdonnaye dans le manuscrit. Le colophon, daté à la plume du 24 janvier 1732, indique qu'il a été réalisé entre les murs de chez lui, pour ses enfants et ses amis les plus chers, pour leur délectation. L'auteur se décrit comme un disciple d'un certain Jean Léon, clerc du diocèse de Tréguier, "Johannes Leon clericus, Trecorensis" (province du Trégor en Bretagne). Il s'agit donc d'un cours de philosophie présentant un système en trois parties, logique, morale, métaphysique ; il est illustré d'une figure à pleine page, figurant l'arbre des différentes parties qui composent la nature, dominé, à son sommet, par l'Esscence ("ens"). L'ensemble des thèses présentées s'assoit sur une définition de la physique en tant que science du monde visible ; l'auteur explique en quoi consiste la science des corps, c'est à dire de la matière, tout en mettant en cause les thèses des autres philosophes, parmi lesquels Descartes et Gassendi, qui lui paraissent insuffisantes. L'encre à la fin de la 2e partie et dans la première moitié de la 3e partie a fortement pâli. Quelques frottements à la reliure, accroc à un mors [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         The Rape of Helen. Translated from the Greek . And illustrated with the Notes of Michael Nicander. To which is prefix'd a Fragment of the Author's Life, from Suidas.

      London: Printed for and sold by J. Roberts and by the Booksellers and Pamphletsellers of London, 1731. - 4to., pp. [4], viii, 34, [2], with an engraved frontispiece by Bickham Jr after Jett; title-page printed in red and black; the errata corrected in manuscript; a very good copy, lower edge uncut, disbound.First and only edition, rare, of this translation of Collothus's Rape of Helen (??pa?? ??e???), 'a short and charming miniature epic' (Cambridge Companion to the Epic) written in the late fifth century in Egypt in 392 hexameters. In a long and interesting Preface, the anonymous translator seeks to introduce (and defend) an unfamiliar work, lamenting that it never received Pope's attention, and apologising for its form, which may confuse readers who already know the story or are hoping for 'a prolix repetition of melting gallantry and amorous dalliance'. The translation was 'written and performed before the full age of seventeen by one who thro' a slender patrimony has been confined to a scanty library, and his life hitherto one continual scene of trouble' – he has since improved his reading and his poetic ability, so if it meets success (it seems it did not), 'the town may shortly expect a much better poem, full of finer Incidents and more remarkable events.'This is Colluthus's only surviving work, re-discovered by Cardinal Bessarion in Calabria in the fifteenth century and first printed by Aldus in c.1505. A very rare Latin paraphrase by Thomas Watson was published in London in 1586 and a translation by Edward Sherburne appeared in his Salmacis, Lyrian & Sylvia (1651). Here it is accompanied by detailed notes, 'The Speech of Paris to Helen' translated from the possibly apocryphal Dictys the Cretan, and a short biography taken from Suidas. For an elaborate production, with a title-page in red and black, and an engraved frontispiece, The Rape of Helen is surprisingly rare. ESTC records five copies only: BL (wanting frontis), Cambridge, Oxford; Duke, and Harvard (listed twice in error).Foxon R 118. Language: English

         Ensemble de deux manuscrits du XVIIIe siècle concernant les évêques de Chalons-en-Champagne

      [Chalons-en-Champagne, XVIIIe siècle] - 2 volumes in-4 brochés, dont un sous emboîtage toilé gris moderne, encre sur papier, sans couverture (premiers et derniers f. frottés, qq. rousseurs, coins arrondis). Importante réunion de deux études manuscrites et très probablement inédites. 1. Eloges historiques des évêques de Chaalons, pour servir d'introduction à l'histoire ecclésiastique de ce diocèse. [Chalons-en Champagne, en 1731 et 1733]. In-4, 150 p. [i.e. 152, les n° de p. 41-42 employés 2 fois], [40] f., [2] f. in-12 insérés. Bien plus qu'un simple catalogue d'évêques, ce manuscrit est riche d'anecdotes sur chaque épiscopat. L'on peut le dater assez précisément, parce que le dernier évêque signalé est Nicolas-Charles de Saulx-Tavannes, "qui en remplit actuellement le siège". Les 3 derniers f. renferment une suite d'"Emblèmes des évêques de Chaalons", qui cesse après le 24e évêque, laissant supposer un manque. Ce manuscrit peut être rapproché de deux autres conservés à la Bibliothèque de Châlons-en-Champagne, attribués au curé Pierre Garnier (Fonds Cathédrale LI 132 ; Réserve MS 253). La pièce de titre de son emboîtage porte le nom dudit P. Garnier. - 2. Catalogue des évêques de Chaalons en Champagne. [Début XVIIIe siècle ? Sur papier d'Angoumois produit par P. Jeudy]. [39 ff.]. Concerne les évêques jusqu'à F. Vialard de Herse en 1642 ; à la fin, il est question du jubé de la cathédrale (1664) et de son incendie (1668). [Attributes: Soft Cover]

The works include Fielding's Tragedy of Tragedies, a reworking of his scarce 1730 work Tom Thumb, and his only play to feature a frontispiece; which is after his friend, William Hogarth. This collection also includes Brooke's tragedy, Gustavus Vasa, which was the first play to be banned by the Licensing Act of 1737, and The Toy-Shop, a satirical farce by Robert Dodsley, with whom Garrick had correspondence in later years. Garrick had an extensive library "of play-texts which served both to enhance Drury Lane's repertory and to satisfy his bibliomania" (ODNB). In 1780 his estate bequeathed 1,300 individual and collected plays to the British Museum; which constituted 90 per cent of all English plays in the Museum until the arrival of King George III's Library in 1828. This work was not donated at that time however, with a note marking the purchase of the book during the sale of Garrick's library by "Mr Saunders in Fleet Street" on the 30 April 1823, to the second blank.   a) Dodsley, Robert, The Toy-Shop, A Dramatick Satire, printed for Lawton Gilliver, 1735; b) [Fielding, H.] The Tragedy of Tragedies, J.

         Vieyra impugnado por la Madre Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz, Religiosa del Orden de San Geronimo, de la Ciudad de Mexico, y defendido por la Madre Sor Margarita Ignacia, Religiosa de San Agustin.

      Imprenta de Antonio Sanz, Madrid 1731 - "A Polemic Work By Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz Against a Famous Jesuit Preacher". 8vo., contemporary vellum with remainders of ties. Woodcut head and tailpieces, woodcut initials. Marginal notes. Contents: Antonio Vieyra. Sermon del mandato en la capilla Real, año de 1650, p. 1-64 ; Crisis sobre un sermon de un orador grande, entre los mayores, que la Madre Soror Juana llamo respuesta, por las gallardas soluciones con que responde à la facundia de sus discursos, p. 65-118; Apologia a favor del Reverendissimo Padre Antonio Vieyra de la Compañia de Jesus. en la qual se desvanece, y convence el Tratado, que con nombre de Crisis escriviò contra èl la Reverenda Señora Sor Juana Inès de la Cruz. / escrita en lengua portuguesa por la Madre Sor Margarita Ignacia, Religiosa de San Agustin. ; traducida en castellano por el maestro Iñigo Rosende y Lozano, Presbytero, p. 119-435; Oracion funebre en las exequias del Reverendissimo Padre Antonio Vieyra. / dixola el Ilustrissimo, y Reverendissimo Señor Don Manuel Cayetano de Sousa., p. 436-509. Contains Vieira’s sermon and Sor Juana’s letter published together for the first time in Spanish plus the text of Luis Gonçalves Pinheiro S.J. written under the pseudonym of Sor Margarida Ignacia, translated by Iñigo Rosende. The latter was originally published in Portuguese in 1727 (Lisboa Occidental: na Officina de Bernardo da Costa, 1727). This book covers a very important theological debate. Elias Trabulse has written: ‘Of all the works by Sor Juana Inés, none had more repercussions or stirred up more polemics in its time than the ‘Carta Atenagórica’ [Crisis de un sermón], In her letter Sor Juana criticized the position of the famous Jesuit preacher, father Vieira, on the question of the ‘fineza’ of Jesus Christ, that is, that the most important gift that Jesus Christ had given mankind was the command of loving one another. Sor Juana defended instead the idea that Jesus Christ’s ‘fineza’ was that of not intervening in human affairs. This provoked a great theological debate in America and Spain reflected in this book. Both Gonçalves Pinheiro and Rosende were staunch defenders of Vieira’s position. Sor Juana’s letter was published in 1690 by the Bishop of Puebla without her knowledge. Several interpretations have been put forward to explain why the Bishop did so. It has been suggested that the Bishop’s admonition of Sor Juana in his famous introduction to her Carta to leave her literary pursuits and concentrate on being a nun, ‘God’s servant’, was influential in bringing about her withdrawal from public life. The theological debate that surrounded Sor Juana’s letter reflects the misogynistic hostility to the idea that a nun should dare to opine on theological matters. * Palau 65284; Elías Trabulse, La guerrra de las finezas.

         Schoole der Jooden, begrypende het geheele Joodsche Geloof.

      Rotterdam Jan Daniel Beman 1731 - 8vo (15.8 x 9.3 cm). pp. [14], 548, 44, with 5 hand-coloured engravings heightened with gold, all folding with tissue guards except the additional title. Contemporary calf, covers with gilt border lines, corner pieces and rich gilt ornamental decoration in the centre with the star of David, spine with raised bands gilt in compartments, red morocco label lettered in gilt, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt; head of spine chipped, spine and hinges rubbed, hinges weak (upper hinge starting), ink? stain to fore edge not affecting the pages. Lovely example of this important work, with plates in bright colours and heightened with gold. In unusual binding featuring the star of David. The four folding plates depict scenes of Jewish life: a Torah service, a Seder, the Sukkot festival and a wedding. This copy was a special commission in colour, extremely rare for this title. Professor of Hebrew in Basel for 39 years, Johannes Buxtorf (1564 – 1629) was considered the leading Protestant expert on Hebrew at his time and came to be known as 'Master of the Rabbis.' His main work, Juden Schul, was first published in German in 1603, followed by the Latin version Synagoga Judaica. The work is a thorough description of Judaism as practised in Germany at the time and became valuable for its descriptive details. It also gives a history of Jewish thought, from biblical times to the 17th century. It is in this work that Buxtorf gives an interpretation of the relations between religions through a dialogue between a Jew and a Christian, where the latter answers to the Jew's attacks on Christianity. This work voices Buxtorf's own attitude towards the Jews which was, overall, a negative one; and although quoting various other literary works about Judaism, his speech was clearly biased. This fine copy is the third Dutch edition, with some Latin and Hebrew text. The four engravings were realised for the first Dutch edition in 1694 by Jan Luyken (1649 – 1712), a Dutch poet, illustrator and engraver. We could trace no other copies of this edition in colour.

        Kupfer-Bibel, in Welcher Die Physica Sacra, Oder Beheiligte Natur-Wissenschafft Derer in Heil[Ige] Schrifft Vorkommenden Natürlichen Sachen.

      Christian Ulrich Wagner Augsburg and Ulm -1735 1731 - First edition. 4 vol. Folio (3.8 x 2.5 cm). Engraved frontispiece, 2 mezzotint portraits, 760 engraved plates by Füssli and others, the rainbow in plate 66 coloured by hand. Contemporary red morocco gilt; neat repairs to extremities. Finely bound set of a masterpiece of German baroque engraving. Johann Jakob Scheuchzer (1672 – 1733) was a professor of mathematics and a polymath with a particular interest in fossils. His monumental Physica Sacra is a detailed explication of events in the Bible in terms of physics, medicine, and natural history. The work is so profusely illustrated with copper-plate engravings that it became known as the copperplate Bible. Each illustration references a specific book, chapter and verse of the 1611 edition of the King James Bible Scheuchzer's grudging recognition that fossils were the remains of sea animals and that the biblical time frame needed extension was a step on the way to Lyell and Darwin. (University of Wales). Scheuchzer's work also inspired an art exhibit at the University of Massachusetts – Dartmouth in 2007/8: Science, Religion, Art. The organisers noted that: 'A lifelong scholar, Scheuchzer's pursuits of knowledge were wide-ranging and diverse, from science to medicine to paleontology. Like many scientists of the late 17th and early 18th century, Scheuchzer held to the belief that the Old Testament was a factual account of the history of the earth. In a period before public museums, Scheuchzer presented a seductive view of an imaginary world, viewed through lush frames depicting secondary symbols, plants, animals, heads and other objects, providing the viewer rich material for an inspired vision of the interaction between the natural and the divine powers.'
