      Nürnberg: Wolfgang Moritz Endters seel. Tochter, Mayrin und Sohn. 1731. Oblong quarto. 2 volumes. Half mid-tan leather with raised bands on spine in decorative compartments gilt, leather title labels gilt, marbled edges. Vol. 1: 1f. (title with engraved vignette), 21ff. (preface dated Nuremberg, April 3, 1731), [i] ("Erstes Register" [table of contents]), [xvii] ("Anderes Register" [table of local variants of tunes]), 12ff. ("Drittes Register" [list of tunes of additional hymns, associated with different text]) 366 (music) pp.; Vol. 2: 1f. (title "Evangelisches Choral- Buch"), 367-776 (music), 777-880 (appendix to music) pp. Text and music typeset. All hymn tunes printed on two staves with melody in soprano clef and figured bass in bass clef. Some tunes texted; most tunes without text underlay but with text incipits for all strophes. Numerous elaborate woodcut tailpieces. Engraved bookplate of Georg Adam Schaumann, Nuremberg (1873) to upper pastedown of both volumes. Contemporary paper slip (ca. 76 x36 mm.) inserted between two final leaves of "Anderes Register" with manuscript annotation in ink: "NB. Straf mich nicht in deinem Zorn quaere sub pagina 542 unter dem Lied Dich Herr Jesu Christ wo aliter dabey steht" (NB. "Straf mich nicht in deinem Zorn" see page 542 below the hymn "Dich Herr Jesu Christ," where the annotation "aliter" stands). Binding slightly worn, rubbed and bumped. Small tear to pp. 47/48; some upper outer corners creased; page 368 misnumbered "168;" "Drittes Register" lacking. . Wolffheim I, 1307 (lacking "Drittes Register" but including corrigenda list). Eitner III, 253 (a defective copy lacking the appendix but including everything else, with "Drittes Register" after the music; now at ?-sterreichische Nationalbibliothek). MGG I, vol. 3, col. 814. NDB IV, p. 114. RISM B/VIII/1 Das Deutsche Kirchenlied 1703/03. Most copies are bound in one volume, with the part title (here, first leaf of vol. 2) inserted before p. 1. Later copies include a 1f. unpaginated "corrigenda" list at the end accounting for errors in the music and also for the mispagination of p. 368. The paper slip with the manuscript annotation suggests that the "Drittes Register" was lacking from the present copy early on because it adds information otherwise provided by that index; this Register also notes that the respective hymn, "Straf mich nicht in deinem Zorn," was sung in Nuremberg and Bayreuth but not in Onoltzbach (now Ansbach), which affords insight into the present copy's history. Cornelius Dretzel hails from a Nuremberg family of musicians (MGG I, vol. 3, cols. 807-8). He seems to have spent his entire life in Nuremberg, but it is possible that he studied with J.S. Bach in Weimar before 1717. He identifies himself on the title of the present publication as "Organ[ist] zu St. Æg[idien]" (organist at St. Egidien church), where he succeeded Wilhelm Pachelbel, Johann Pachelbel's son, in 1719. Later he served at St. Lorenz and St. Sebaldus. The preface ("Vorrede"), simply signed "Der Autor," is not by Dretzel but by Wilhelm Schmidt, a Lutheran clergyman in Nuremberg. The publication draws on a variety of earlier printed and manuscript sources—among others, by Hans Leo Haßler, Johann Staden, and Sigmund Theophil Staden. It was intended for use in the Lutheran territories of Franconia. The table of the "Anderes Register" has columns for Nuremberg, Altdorf (a town under Nuremberg rule), Bayreuth, Onol[t]zbach (Ansbach), and "Hällisch" (free imperial city of Hall, now Schwäbisch Hall), providing a synopsis of their repertories. "[Dretzel's edition] contains over 900 melodies with basso continuo, most of them appearing in print for the first time, in the various versions in which they were sung at Nuremberg, Bayreuth and Ansbach. For songs without a traditional melody Dretzel wrote new versions ?'in the traditional manner?' (?'auf ordinaire Art?'). His preface, in which he presented his work ?'to the glory of God?' and for ?'the furtherance of true devotion?' and ?'the pleasure of gentlemen dilettantes?', is a comprehensive historical discussion of the origin and development of the chorale; as a practising musician he took up positions on many questions of liturgical interest and ended the discussion with detailed instructions about thoroughbass." Lini Hübsch-Pfleger in New Grove Online. A very attractive copy of this fine example of the Nuremberg tradition of music printing from type.

        Het Oude en Niewe [nieuwe] Verbond aen een geschakelt in de geschiedenissen der Joden en der aangrenzende volkeren, sedert het verval der koninkryken van Israel en Juda tot de komst van Jezus Kristus. In twee deelen

      Amsterdam, Isaak Tirion, 1731.. Two parts in one volume. Eight books to the first part, nine to the second. Folio. Pp. xii-xxii (partly set in double columns), 32 (list of chronological events), 33-36 with a Privilege by the Staten van Holland, 1552 numbered columns, (33) index, set in 3 columns, (4) concordance, (2) index of Greek and Latin authors, (1) errata. Half-title, large allegorical frontispiece by van Mieris, finely engraved by van Bleyswyk, with a Privilege of Joannes vander Linden of Leiden engraved at bottom, dated 1729; title-page printed in red and black, with large, handsome engraved device; title to the second part. Plus 7 double-page copper engraved maps, one of which is a folding plan of Jerusalem Temple with extended legend in letterpress on two text panels. With fine copper engraving of the Holy Altar and one table to the text. Large engraved initial to head of each book, followed by a smaller one; tail-pieces. Footnotes, side-notes, appendices. Hardcover, bound in contemporary full calf, spine in 7 compartments between gilt-tooled raised bands, gilt morocco label in 2nd compartment, remainders with central gilt-tooled ornaments, each within gilt ornamental frame, gilt-tooled bevelled edges, all edges sprinkled; leather shows light signs of wear, with a small chip at head of spine and a short split at head of lower joint, gutter after blank prelim split. In a very fine internal condition. Exceptionally well preserved interior with crisp leaves and a crisp, practically unused set of maps. ~ Second edition. The first edition was printed in 1723 by Joannes vander Linden of Leiden, who first intended to publish the work in a decent quarto but ended with a two-volume, rather thick and clumsy octavo (he even contemplated a three-volume set but gave up the idea). In 1729 he decided to sell the publishing rights to Isaak Tirion of Amsterdam, who in 1731 published this edition, the first (and last) to be printed in royal folio, measuring 41 x 28cm. Tirion could now reset the work in elegant and practical double-column format, add a large, magnificant frontispiece, and allow the handsome maps the freedom to remain unfolded double-page generous folios.

Warmholtz 313, som skriver att "Verket är vidlyftigt nog; men icke desto mindre hvarken grundeligt, fullständeligt eller påliteligt. Författaren lände likväl til beröm, at han, såsom Utlänning, med den insigt och förmåga han ägde, praesterat det som tils datum ingen Svensk Man sig åtagit, neml. at lämna Allmänheten i händer en så detaillerad Beskrifning öfver Svea Rikes Hufvudstad, som denna är." Om Rüdlings biografi är inte mycket känt. Nordisk familjebok skriver att han föddes i Leipzig, kom till Stockholm 1723 som tysk skolmästare där han även arbetade som informator, samt att arbetet översattes från författarens tyska manuskript av N. H:son Dal resp. O. Lindsten. K. F. Werner beskriver Rüdling i Samlaren 1880 som "Stockholms förste historiograf" och citerar den tiggarskrift som han publicerade 1742, som ett tecken på att verket inte gav någon särskild ekonomisk vinning åt författaren.

        Handschriftliches Arbeitszeugnis des Hofapothekers Caspar Neumann für Maria Elisabeth Danielin (Daniel) vom 27. Juni 1731.

      Berlin 1731. Ein Blatt, 14,5 x 19 cm. (Papier leicht nachgedunkelt, gut erhalten) Handschrift auf Papier in einem neueren Rahmen hinter Glas (25 x 30 cm). In alter Schönschrift mit einem Siegel, darauf die Inschrift "Königliche Hoffapothec" sowie die Initialen FWR (Friedrich Wilhelm Rex) und eine Krone. "Daß Vorzeigerin dieses, Maria Elisabeth Danielin, gebürtig aus Freyenwalde an der Oder 6. Jahr, sage sechs hintereinander folgende Jahr lang bey mir, als ein Dienstmägdchen gedienet, und während solcher Zeit sich getreu, fleißig und recht wohl verhalten hat, habe ich hiermit, auf Verlangen, attestieren wollen; wir wir (sic!) dann selbige auch noch länger würden behalten haben, wenn sie nicht entschlossen, sich zu verheirathen. Berlin d. 27. Junii 1731. Caspar Neumann Med Dr. Königl. Professor und Hoffapotheker". Seltenes handschriftliches Zeugnis des bedeutenden Pharmazeuten und Chemikers Caspar Neumann (Züllichau 1683 - 1737 Berlin). Neumann war von 1719 bis zu seinem Tode Leiter der Hofapotheke. "Innerhalb sehr kurzer Zeit gelang es ihm, durch gut durchdachte Umbauten und umfassende Modernisierung der Einrichtung, die Berliner Hof-Apotheke zu einem mustergültigen pharmazeutischen Betrieb, vor allem aber zu einer Forschungs- und Ausbildungsstätte zu entwickeln, die in Deutschland kein Gegenstück hatte. (...) Neumann entwickelte faktisch die Konzeption des wissenschaftlich gebildeten Pharmazeuten." (wikipedia). Über Kalliope konnten wir nur eine weitere Handschrift Neumanns in Dresden nachweisen.

Lisbon: Officina Ferreiriana, 1733. [16],102,[1]pp. Internally clean and fresh, with minor worming in lower margin of final seven leaves. Both titles in very good condition. The second edition of Galvao's history of exploration and voyages, after the virtually unobtainable first edition of 1563. According to Sabin, this second edition "is also rare, the greater portion having been destroyed by an earthquake." Galvao's text was translated in 1601 by Hakluyt, who complained about the rarity of the first edition even then, and had to rely on a copy sent from Lisbon. Currently, only three copies of the first edition are known, including one at the John Carter Brown Library. Born in 1503, Galvao was sent to India in 1527, and after distinguishing himself there, he was appointed governor of the Moluccas. He maintained a keen interest in military and religious affairs throughout his career, and spent the latter part of his life assembling accounts of the voyages that comprise this collection. He provides a relatively succinct chronological list of ancient and modern discoveries to the year 1550, including those by Columbus, Cabral, Cortés, and Pizarro. "The author has been styled 'the founder of historical geography.' The book gives a good summary of the geographical explorations of the Portuguese and other important voyagers, including the English" - Hill. Bound with Galvao's TRATADO... is the second edition Francisco Moreno Porcel's biography and critical appreciation of the Portuguese poet and historian, Manuel de Faria y Sousa (1590-1649), enlarged from the first edition of 1650. Faria y Sousa is known for his enormous commentary on Camões' OS LUSIADAS, his historical writings on Portuguese expansion, and his own poetry. A key collection of voyages, here in the first obtainable edition, bound with a contemporary edition by the same publisher of a biography of the historian of Portuguese expansion, Faria y Sousa.

Langerak, 1731 - 2 textes reliés en 1 vol. in-12, (24), 196, (7) pp., 16 planches dépliantes, et X, 38(8) pp., titre en rouge et noir, pleine basane de l'époque, dos à nerfs orné, pièce de titre jaune, coins et caisson de queue restaurés, mouillure claire sur les 3 premières planches et petite mouillure angulaire sur 3 autres planches, bon état. - Seconde édition, corrigée, de l'ouvrage de Du Verney. C'est surtout cette édition, devenue encore plus rare que l'originale, qui contribua à sa notoriété. Elle fut traduite en plusieurs langues (latine, allemande, hollandaise puis anglaise) et devint le traité de référence en otologie pendant plus d'un siècle. Le traité de Duverney fut le premier véritable traité d'otologie, traitant de l'anatomie, de la physiologie et des affections de l'oreille. Cette monographie comporte la première description précise des osselets, ainsi que de la vascularisation et de l'innervation de l'oreille. Duverney décrit les incisures, le canalis medius et le canalis semi-circularis superior, qui porteront son nom. Il montre que les cellules mastoïdiennes communiquent avec la cavité tympanique. Il est le premier à reconnaître à la trompe dEustache un rôle d¿aération de la caisse, et au labyrinthe un rôle important dans la perception des sons. Il conçoit la première théorie convenable de l'audition. En pathologie, il est le premier à contester l'origine cérébrale de l'otite, affirmant que le pus vient de la cavité tympanique. Cet ouvrage est orné de seize belles planches gravées, signées « R.Blokh F. » Guichard Joseph Duverney (1648-1730), né à Feurs, étudia la médecine à Avignon, puis partit à Paris. Il devint démonstrateur d'anatomie au Jardin du Roi, entra à l'Académie des sciences et fut nommé professeur d'anatomie. Il fut l'un des plus grands anatomistes du XVIIème siècle et un enseignant remarquable. cf.

Tchemerzine (1977) III, 232b; Linde 107. Provenance: Stamp of Alfonso Cassuto on title. Much of the work is devoted to an attempt to combat the perceived atheism of Spinoza?s philosophy. Paul Janet suggests that Bayle?s Dictionary was Fenelon and other French critics? principle source of information on Spinoza?s work, and that the loss of Spinoza?s subtleties in the reduction was the root of much of the criticism.

Pemberton on flyleaf of Vol. 1. Contemporary full calfs, rebacked. PMM 189, Horblit 45b. - FIRST EDITION of Vol. 2 and SECOND EDITION of vol. 1. Hales applied his training in biology and mathematics (including physics) to make important scientific investigations presented in these separately published volumes. The first volume, Vegetable staticks, Hales describes his investigations of plant physiology, including the movement of water in plants and determining the three factors of water movement: root suction, root pressure and leaf suction. He also established that plants lose water continuously during transpiration through leaves. His quantitative measurements of these phenomena enabled him to show the rate of transpiration varied with temperature. Hales established that plants do not have true circulation system, and developed techniques of measuring the varying growth rates in different plant structures. The second volume, or Haemastaticks, 'contains the studies on blood pressure which make Hales one of the founders of modern experimental physiology. The application of the principle of the pressure-gauge or manometer enabled him to measure blood pressure during the contraction of the heart. He computed the circulation rate and estimated the velocity of the blood in the veins, arteries and capillary vessels and by showing that the capillary vessels are liable to constriction and dilation he made an important contribution both to the study of physiology and the practice of the physician of today . Hales' work marked the greatest advance in the physiology of the circulation between Harvey and the introduction of the mercury manometer and other instruments for the measurement of blood pressure by J.L.M. Poiseuille in 1828' (PMM). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Hardcover, bound in contemporary full calf, spine in 7 compartments between gilt-tooled raised bands, gilt morocco label in 2nd compartment, remainders with central gilt-tooled ornaments, each within gilt ornamental frame, gilt-tooled bevelled edges, all edges sprinkled; leather shows light signs of wear, with a small chip at head of spine and a short split at head of lower joint, gutter after blank prelim split. In a very fine internal condition. Exceptionally well preserved interior with crisp leaves and a crisp, practically unused set of maps. ~ Second edition. The first edition was printed in 1723 by Joannes vander Linden of Leiden, who first intended to publish the work in a decent quarto but ended with a two-volume, rather thick and clumsy octavo (he even contemplated a three-volume set but gave up the idea). In 1729 he decided to sell the publishing rights to Isaak Tirion of Amsterdam, who in 1731 published this edition, the first (and last) to be printed in royal folio, measuring 41 x 28cm. Tirion could now reset the work in elegant and practical double-column format, add a large, magnificant frontispiece, and allow the handsome maps the freedom to remain unfolded double-page generous folios.
