        pl. 19 The Bean

      An exquisitly detailed hand colored botanical engraving by Elizabeth Blackwell from her book"A Curious Herbal Containing Five Hundred Cuts of the Most Useful Plants Which are Now Used in the Practice of Physick", which was published in London in 1737-39. Overal this print measures 11.25"x18". In 1737, Elizabeth produced a delightful volume, A Curious Herbal, containing many decorative plates of various plants. Such herbals, illustrating and describing plants for their alleged medicinal powers, were the medical books of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. The story of Blackwell?s book is particularly interesting.Talented and fiercely independent women seem to have flourished in the field of botanical illustration. Mrs. Blackwell - apparently neither an artist nor a botanist - was suddenly faced with the problem of obtaining her doctor husband?s release from a debtor?s prison, where he was languishing after an abortive foray into the printing business. On the advice of Sir Hans Sloane, the famous London Physician and patron of naturalists, who had told her that a herbal of medicinal plants was needed, the resourceful lady set herself up in lodgings near the Chelsea Physic Garden , founded by the Society of Apothecaries on a piece of land donated by Sloane, and proceeded to make drawings of the appropriate plants. The result of her initiative and labors was A Curious Herbal, with 500 hand-colored copperplate engravings. The indirect result was Dr. Alexander Blackwell?s release from prison. Her efforts on his behalf certainly seem worthwhile today to anyone looking at A Curious Herbal.    Overall this print is in good condition with some foxing/staining/creasing along margins. Some darker staining behind image.

      - Florey in Mitteilungen der Gesellschaft für Salzburger Landeskunde, Bd.133, S261ff.: ?Eine der wesentlichsten Ursachen dafür, daß sich die Lehre Luthers im Erzstift Salzburg, und nicht nur in ihm so rasch verbreiten und in Stadt und Land Anhänger finden konnte, war das fast völlige Fehlen einer leicht verständlichen katholischen Literatur in deutscher Sprache. Um eine weitere Verbreitung lutherischer Gedanken durch zurückgebliebene Geheimprotestanten oder durch heimliches Lesen der verbotenen Literatur zu verhindern, schien es geboten, eine volkstümliche katholische Literatur zu schaffen. Sie sollte ihre Leser im Glauben stärken und zugleich die lutherische Lehre widerlegen. Deshalb beauftragte schon bald nach der Vertreibung der Protestanten Erzbischof Firmian selbst den Priester Guilielm Christoph Weissenbacher mit der Abfassung eines solchen Werks. Weissenbacher war ein ebenso belesener wie theologisch gebildeter Priester, der sich als volkstümlicher Prediger bereits einen Namen gemacht hatte.1737 erschien schon der erste Band der von ihm verfaßten Schrift in Druck. Acht Jahre später, 1745, folgte der zweite Band. Ganz gewiß hat Weissenbachers Werk ein gut Teil dazu beigetragen, die Glaubenseinheit im Erzbistum wiederherzustellen.?- Tls. etw. braunfleckig, Innendeckel mit Exlibris, Schließen defekt, Ebd. fleckig u. berieben.

        La vérité des miracles opérés par l' intercession de M. de Paris. Démontrée contre M. l' Archevêque de Sens.,

      Libraires de la Compagnie, Utrecht 1737 - Originaler Einband, Ganzleder der Zeit. Goldornamentik am Rücken, sehr guter Zustand, durchgehend sauber, keine Stockflecken. Buchblock tadellos; ca. 900 Seiten, 19 Teile in 1 Band, jeweils neubeginnend paginiert, vollständig vorliegend. Frontispiz Portrait F.de Paris, 19 Kupfertafeln - davon 1 Falttafel (vorher - nachher bez. Wunder), 19 magnifiques gravures, propres, sans rousseurs. Gestochen von P. Yver, guter Druck, Titelvignetten. Die erste Wunderheilung (miracles) ist die vom Autor selbst. Alle acht folgenden Wunderheilungen werden begleitet von einem Kommentar (conséquences qu on doit tirer des miracles) und einer Beweisführung (pièces justificatives). Darstellungen der Wunderheilungen, die sich am Grabe des asketischen Diakons François de Paris zugetragen haben. François de Paris (1690-1727) gehörte zu den extremen Jansenisten. Nach seinem Tod kamen die Menschen an sein Grab, um zu beten und die Wunderheilungen fanden immer in der Begleitung von Konvulsionen statt. Bald darauf wurde der Friedhof zu einem Schauplatz von schwerer Hysterie befallenen Menschen. Montgeron, der auf dem Grab des Diakons im September 1731 konvertierte, wurde zum großen Apostel der Konvulsionen und Selbstbestrafungen, die sogar bis zur Selbstkreuzigung führten. Eine der ersten, die geheilt wurden, war die Nichte von Blaise Pascal, an einem Augenfollikel leidend. Der Friedhof wurde dann geschlossen und Montgeron endete in der Bastille. "Apres la mort de François de Paris sur le territoire de la paroisse Saint-Médard, les gens vinrent prier sur sa tombe et nombre de guérisons spectaculaires s'y produisirent, toujours accompagnées de convulsions nerveuses. Bientôt le cimetière offrit le spectacle de véritables scènes d'hystérie. Le grand apôtre des convulsions et des secours (pénitences corporelles allant jusqu'a la crucifixion, que s'imposaient les convulsionnaires) fut le parlementaire Carre de Montgeron, converti sur le tombeau du diacre Paris en Septembre 1731". (Louis Cognet : le Jansénisme, P.U.F. 1961) "Le Roi décida en 1732 d'en faire interdire l'accès ; un inconnu malicieux posa une affichette sur la palissade fermant le cimetière, avec ces mots : "De par le Roi, défense à Dieu de faire miracle en ce lieu " (on peut toujours voir la porte murée à l'angle de la rue Daubenton et de la rue Candolle). La paroisse fut un lieu de forte résistance à la Bulle Unigenitus publiée en 1713 et en particulier à partir de mars 1752 avec la question des billets de confession (voir Christophe de Beaumont). Durant la Révolution, l'église est fermée et le culte aboli en novembre 1793. Elle est rouverte par un décret de la Convention de mai 1795. La paroisse partage son église avec les théophilanthropes et avec le culte décadaire elle s'appellera Temple du Travail pendant dix mois. " (Wikipedia). 19 x 26 Cm. 1,7 Kg.

        La Verité des Miracles operés par l'intercession de M. de Paris, demontrée contre M. l'Archevêque de Sens. Ouvrage dedié au Roy.

      Chez les Libraires de la Compagnie,, A Utrecht, 1737 - In-4° (261x195mm), pp. (8), XXVIII, 32, 63, XXVIII, 79, XXXVIII, 52, XXX, 74, LVI, 56, XXVII, 44, XVIII, 39, XVII, (1), 52, XXVIII, 32, XX, 28, (1) di errata (la paginazione è autonoma per ciascun resoconto miracolos). Legatura coeva p. vitello con triplo ordine di filetti dorati ai piatti. Dorso a 5 nervi decorati in oro con titolo in oro entro tassello e ricchi fregi dorati entro scomparti. Tagli dorati, unghie decorate in oro, sguardie a piuma di pavone. Frontespizio in rosso e in nero con vignetta calcografica. Antiporta incisa su rame con François de Paris in adorazione del Crocifisso e altre 19 tavv. calcografiche f.t. di elegante fattura raffiguranti eventi e guarigioni miracolose, di cui una su doppia pag. rappresentante il pellegrinaggio alla tomba dell'ecclesiastico. Le incisioni sono di Pieter Yver da disegno di Jean Restout. Magnifico esemplare. Seconda edizione, immediatamente posteriore alla prima, di questo resoconto degli eventi prodigiosi operati da François de Paris (Parigi, 1690-ivi, 1727), Diacono della chiesa parigina. Alla sua morte il religioso venne inumato nel cimitero di Saint-Médard e i giansenisti sparsero rapidamente la voce che sul suo sepolcro fossero avvenute delle guarigioni portentose. Tali voci dettero origine anche a fenomeni di isteria convulsiva (che riguardarono anche il fratello di Voltaire, Armand Arouet) e a lunghe processioni sulla tomba dell'ecclesiastico, tali da far decidere al clero parigino di chiudere il cimitero, sui cui muri venne scritto, alcuni giorni dopo, in segno di scherno: "De par le roi, défense à Dieu De faire miracle en ce lieu". Il Montgeron si era recato a Saint-Médard prima della sua chiusura con atteggiamento del tutto scettico, volendo provare la falsità dei miracolo di cui si narrava, ma il suo scetticismo ebbe a decadere; egli divenne un ardente seguace spirituale di François de Paris e scrisse il presente libro proprio per affermare la verità dei miracoli attribuitigli. La prima tiratura, di 5000 copie, era stata impressa a Parigi senza luogo di stampa e senza indicazioni tipografiche, ma tale impressione venne rapidamente sequestrata e in gran parte distrutta in un rogo dinanzi alla Bastiglia. Lo stesso Montgeron per aver osato presentare copia del volume al Re di Francia e al Duca di Orléans venne incarcerato alla Bastiglia e poi a Valence, dove si spense dopo 17 anni di carcerazione nel 1754.

        THE AMERICAN ALMANACK FOR THE YEAR OF CHRISTIAN ACCOUNT, 1738

      Philadelphia: Printed and Sold by Andrew Bradford, [1737].. [24]pp. including two woodcut illustrations. 12mo. Printed self-wrappers, stitched. Contemporary numerical ink annotation in outer margin of p.[20]. Fine, untrimmed. In a half morocco and cloth box. A fine copy of Titan Leeds' AMERICAN ALMANACK for 1738, the year of the author's death. The death of Titan Leeds was a subject of some controversy earlier in the decade, when Benjamin Franklin, writing as Richard Saunders in the first issue of the "Poor Richard" almanac (and inspired by Jonathan Swift's famous Bickerstaff hoax of 1708), predicted that his "good friend and fellow- student" would die "on October 17, 1733, 3 hr. 29 m., P.M., at the very instant of the conjunction of the Sun and Mercury." When Leeds announced his survival the following year, launching invectives at his competitor, "Saunders" responded in his 1734 almanac that his "dear friend" must, indeed, have died, as the true "Mr. Leeds was too well bred to use any man so indecently and so scurrilously" as he had used "Poor Richard" in his protests. For the next several years Richard Saunders continued to insist that Leeds was no more, and following the announcement of Leeds' actual death in 1738, Saunders printed a letter from Leeds' ghost admitting: "I did actually die at that moment, precisely at the hour you mentioned, with a variation of 5 minutes, 53 seconds." The "ghost" of Titan Leeds, in fact, hovered in the imprint of THE AMERICAN ALMANACK through its 1746 issue, the final year for which Leeds was said to have calculated the calendar before dying. In addition to the calendar, the 1738 AMERICAN ALMANACK contains schedules for courts, Quaker and Baptist meetings, and fairs; a list of roads and distances between points from Boston to South Carolina; a catalogue of living monarchs and their dates of birth; an excerpt from THE DUNCIAD; original verse; a bookseller's advertisement for Andrew Bradford; and a note to the reader with apocalyptic speculations pertaining to the Pope. The titlepage features an elaborate armorial woodcut, and a woodcut anatomical depiction of the zodiac appears on page [3]. DRAKE 9600. EVANS 4150. HILDEBURN 557. NAIP w022437.

        Seria mixta jocis seu libri tres epigrammatum quibus Vienna Austriae metropolis continetur.

      Wien, Johann Baptist Schilg, 1737. - (8), 114 SS. Wiener Marmorband der Zeit über Holzdeckeln mit hs. Rückenschildchen. Dreiseitiger gesprenkelter Rotschnitt. 8vo. Bemerkenswerte Beschreibung des Wiens des Hochbarock in großteils humorigen lateinischen Epigrammen. Das erste Buch behandelt Kaiser Karl VI., das politische und das Kriegsgeschehen der Zeit und die Herrscherfamilie; unter den Epigrammen auch "einige auf die Heirat der Erzherzogin Maria Theresia mit Franz Stephan von Lothringen und die Geburt ihres ersten Kindes. Auch vom Tod des im Jahr zuvor verstorbenen Prinzen Eugen handeln mehrere der Gedichte ('Extinctum Martem dum sua turba dolet'). Im zweiten Buch werden die repräsentativen Bauwerke und Institutionen Wiens vorgestellt, darunter die universitären Einrichtungen und die Hofbibliothek. Im dritten Buch lernt der Leser aber auch den Alltag und die weniger glänzenden Seiten Wiens in Epigrammen kennen: Das Kärtnertor und den Tandelmarkt, die Kaffeehäuser und die Fischer am Donauufer, das Zuchthaus und das Armenhaus. Auch von den Einwohnern und Besuchern der Stadt, von Minderheiten, verschiedenen Berufsgruppen und Nationalitäten ist die Rede: Von Rauchfangkehrern und Nachtwächtern, von Milchmädchen und Fetzentandlerinnen; von Ungarn, Schweizern und Polen; von Säufern und von Spielern; von ungebildeten Lehrern und von Ärzten, die ihr Handwerk nicht verstehen. Und obwohl diese humoristischen Epigramme oft mehr als unfreundlich ausfallen, erlauben sie uns doch einen interessanten Blick auf das Wien des Jahres 1737" (ÖNB). - Ecken bestoßen; papierbedingt durchgehend etwas braunfleckig.

        Broadside from Charles VI, Holy Roman Emperor, announcing alliance with Russia in their war with the Ottoman Empire

      1737 - Decree of Charles VI, Holy Roman Emperor, announcing that he will be an ally of RUssia in their war with the Ottoman Empire (1735-1738). After the announcement, there follows an offer to peoples under Ottoman rule to surrender, and for those who want freedom from the Turks there is a description of priveleges that will be granted to them (i.e. freedom from pillage and plunder by his army). The document is dated June 1737, with the space for the day of the month left blank. Charles VI (1 October 1685 – 20 October 1740) was the penultimate Habsburg sovereign of the Habsburg Empire. He succeeded his elder brother, Joseph I, as Holy Roman Emperor, King of Bohemia (Charles II), Hungary and Croatia (Charles III), Archduke of Austria, etc., in 1711. He unsuccessfully claimed the throne of Spain as Charles III following the death of its ruler, and Charles's relative, Charles II of Spain, in 1700. This is a particularly fine broadside, with woodcut initial, and what may be the signature of "Carolus VI" (or a clerk of his) at the bottom left, with further undecipherable text underneath. Lower right has the signature of Johannes Christopherus Bartenstein. Printed on thick, laid paper, folded; measures 36x41cm, or 14x16.25in. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Historia insectorum generalis; ofte, algemeene verhandeling der bloedeloose dierkens.Utrecht: Merinardus van Dreunen, 1669.

      The very rare first edition of Swammerdam's important entomology work in which he "rejected spontaneous generation and proposed that the process of decay in organic matter was the result of living organisms" (Dibner on the later re-worked edition of this work by Boerhave from 1737, i.e., <i>Bybel der natuure</i>). ❧ Garrison-Morton 294; Barchas 2018. See Dibner 191; Norman 2037; Sparrow 187 for the later <i>Bybel der natuure</i>. "The </i>Biblia natura</i>, Swammerdam's major work, was published fifty-seven years after his death by Herman Boerhaave, who assembled it from unpublished manuscript materials integrated with a slightly revised version of Swammerdam's <i>Historia insectorum generalis</i> (1669)." (Norman).<br/><br/> "The 1669 <i>Historia</i> was devoted to the over-throw of the idea of metamorphosis, as its title explains: 'General Account of the Bloodless Animals, in Which Will be Clearly Set Forward the True Basis of Their Slow Growth of Limbs, the Vulgar Error of the Transformation, Also Called Metamorphosis, Will be Effectually Washed Away, and Comprehended Concisely in Four Distinct Orders of Changes, or Natural Budding Forth of Limbs.' The idea of metamorphosis, which Swammerdam was so determined to refute, was that of a sudden and total change from one kind of creature into another, comparable to the alchemical transmutation of a base metal into gold.<br/><br/> "The impact of the New Philosophy is clearly shown in Swammerdam's famous <i>Historia insecianem generalis</i> of 1669. From early childhood, Swammerdam had had a strong interest in insects. This was a highly original field of research. Except for some species, insects were usually considered vermin, representing the lowest stage in the 'great chain of being'. Most insects, natural philosophers since Aristotle maintained, originated from spontaneous generation, that is to say from putrefying plants, meat or excrements. Unlike the higher animals, they had no entrails. As a consequence, insects were not only neglected in scientific research but even loathed. There were some exceptions to this rule, like the bee, the ant and the butterfly. Their status, however, was not the result of a thorough knowledge of their generation but was largely due to their symbolic meaning. The Bible, the Ancients, emblem-books and contemporary natural histories all described the life of bees as a model for human society, since the ruler of the beehive was believed to be a King. Likewise, the metamorphosis of a caterpillar into a butterfly was considered a metaphor, even a proof of the Resurrection of the Dead!. It was such assumptions Swammerdam attacked vehemently. <br/><br/> "Close scrutiny led Swammerdam to the conclusion that the so-called 'king-bee' had female sexual organs. And, even more importantly, the idea of the metamorphosis of a caterpillar via chrysalis into a butterfly was entirely nonsensical. There was no such thing as a sudden, miraculous change of one creature into another. The butterfly did not resurrect from the rotting body of the dead caterpillar, but essentially <i>was</i> the caterpillar, since all the basic organs of the butterfly could already be discerned in the early stage of the creature's life. He maintained that this process was basically the same as the life cycle of the higher creatures. These were the more spectacular discoveries Swammerdam presented to his readers in 1669. <br/><br/> "Moreover, in his <i>Historia</i>, Swammerdam sketched the general outlines of an entirely new theory of the generation of all insects. He vehemently attacked axioms that were three centuries old: (1) insects lack internal anatomy; (2) they originate by spontaneous generation; (3) they then develop by metamorphosis. Swammerdam self-confidently declared that he, 'by means of experience' ('door middel van de ondervindingen') had solved the mystery that for two thousand years had puzzled the most brilliant minds. Swammerdam scorned almost every predecessor who he believed had been more preoccupied with reading books or with 'vain speculations' than with observing the processes of nature. Aristotle, Pliny, Aldrovandi, Moffet and other contemporary authors were all attacked in a most aggressive manner as not seeking truth and thereby not serving God, the almighty creator. <br/><br/> At first sight, Swammerdam takes an entirely empirical approach. He denies the value of bookish knowledge and folklore, and bases himself exclusively on his own observations. Others were only to be believed insofar as he himself could verify their conclusions. The <i>Historia</i> offers many valuable observations on different kinds of insects and is in this respect far superior to Hooke's famous <i>Micrographia</i> (1665) and Redi's <i>Espierenze intorno alla generazione degl'insetti</i> (1668)."

        Histoire de Madame la Comtesse DES BARRES, A Madame la Marquise DE LAMBERT.

      [2], 138 pages. Contemporary full sheep gilt, recently expertly re-backed; red title label. Binding: 134x 83 mm (51/4 x 31/4 inches). First edition. Ink stain on fore-edge, affecting nine leaves, and encroaching, at most, 3mm into the blank margin. Very rare. De Choisy was born in Paris. His father was attached to the household of the duke of Orléans, and his mother, who was on intimate terms with Anne of Austria, was regularly called upon to amuse Louis XIV. By a whim of his mother, the boy was dressed like a girl until he was eighteen, and, after appearing for a short time in man's costume, he resumed woman's dress on the advice--doubtless satirical--of Madame de La Fayette. He delighted in the most extravagant toilettes until he was publicly rebuked by the duc de Montausier, when he retired for some time to the provinces, using his disguise to assist his numerous intrigues. Though he wrote a number of works in his lifetimes, he is remembered for his gossiping Mémoires (1737). Choisy is said to have burnt some of his indiscreet revelations, but left a considerable quantity of unpublished manuscript. Part of this material, giving an account of his adventures as a woman, was surreptitiously used in an anonymous Histoire de madame la comtesse de Barres (Antwerp, 1735) and again with much editing in the Vie de M. l'abbé de Choisy (Lausanne and Geneva, 1742), ascribed by Paul Lacroix to Lenglet Dufresnoy; the text was finally edited (1870) by Lacroix as Aventures de l'abbé de Choisy.

      xxxiii+270+[2]+15+[1]+48+xix+[1] pages 14 of 18 engraved plates, maps (many folding) and index. Quarto (10 1/4" x 8 1/4") in original leather binding. First edition.Richard Owen Cambridge was a British poet. He was educated at Eton and at St John's College, Oxford. Leaving the university without taking a degree, he took up residence at Lincolns Inn in 1737. Four years later he married, and went to live at his country seat of Whitminster, Gloucestershire. In 1751 he removed to Twickenham, where he enjoyed the society of many notable persons. Horace Walpole in his letters makes many jesting allusions to Cambridge in the character of news-monger. His chief work is the Scribleriad (1751), a mock epic poem, the hero of which is the Martinus Scriblerus of Alexander Pope, John Arbuthnot and Jonathan Swift. The poem is preceded by a dissertation on the mock heroic, in which he avows Cervantes as his master. The satire shows considerable learning, and was eagerly read by literary people; but it never became popular, and the allusions, always obscure, have little interest for the present-day reader. He made a valuable contribution to history in his Account of the War in India on the Coast of Coromandel from the year 1750 to 1760 (1761). He had intended to write a history of the rise and progress of British power in India, but this enterprise went no further than this one work, as he found that Robert Orme, who had promised him the use of his papers, contemplated the execution of a similar plan. The Works of Richard Owen Cambridge, includes several pieces never before published. It contains an Account of his Life and Character by his Son, George Owen Cambridge (1803), the Scribleriad, some narrative and satirical poems, and about twenty papers originally published in Edward Moore's paper, The World. His poems are included in Alexander Chalmers' English Poets (1816.Condition:Previous owner's name in neatly written dated 1806 on front end paper with his book plate on front past down with his library stamp.

Uncut. 18th century Italian stiff paper covers, paper spines with hand-lettered labels; preserved in cloth drop-back box. Fine copy. First Collected Edition in Latin. "Harvey&#39;s chief works in Latin have only twice been printed in a collected form, first by van Kerckhem at Leiden in 1737 and secondly by Bowyer for the Royal College of Physicians in 1766" (Keynes, p. 100). This edition of Harvey&#39;s works is one of a series of collected works of anatomists edited by Bernard Siegfried Albinus (1697-1770), author of the monumental Tabulae sceleti et musculorum corporis humani (1737-47; G-M 399). Other collections in the series edited by Albinus include the collected works of Vesalius (1725) and of Fabricius (1738); the Albinus Harvey, however, is much rarer on the market-this is the third copy we have handled in our nearly four decades in business. A few copies of Vol. I were separately issued with a title-page dated 1736; however, "this form of van Kerckhem&#39;s edition is rare, the sheets of the greater part of the issue having been published in 1737 as Part 1 of the Opera" (Keynes, p. 49).

Der niederl. und lateinische Text zweispältig gedruckt. Jan Swammerdam (1637-1680), niederländischer Naturforscher und gilt als Begründer der Präformationslehre (Evolutionslehre). 1658 beschrieb er als erster Mensch die von ihm unter dem Mikroskop entdeckten roten Blutkörperchen. Ab 1661 nahm er ein Medizin-Studium an der Universität Leiden auf, ging 1664 nach Paris, kehrte ein Jahr später zurück nach Leiden und Amsterdam und wurde 1667 zum Dr. med. promoviert. 1675 veröffenltichte er seine Abhandlungen zur Naturgeschichte der Insekten. Er erkannte, dass die Königin das einzige fortpflanzungsfähige Weibchen des Bienenvolkes ist und stellte fest, dass die Metamorphose der Insekten nichts anderes ist als Entfaltung und Wachstum bereits vorhandener Anlagen. Weitere wichtige Studien befassen sich mit dem Lebenszyklus der Frösche und mit dem Bau der weiblichen Geschlechtsorgane des Menschen."The Biblia Naturae is the finest collection of microscopical observations ever produced by one worker . The book is consulted by naturalists to this day. Some of the figures have never been excelled ." (Singer). The scarce original edition with Latin and Dutch text printed in double columns. "Despite a scientific career that lasted only a dozen years, Swammerdam was one of the oustanding comparative anatomists of the seventeenth century. His most remarkable work was in the field of insect anatomy, which he undertook in order to disprove still-current Aristotelian notions (which he opposed upon religious grounds) that insects lack internal anatomy, develop by metamorphosis (sudden and complete transformation) and arise from spontaneous generation. By refining his techniques of microdissection and injection to the point where he could use them on the smallest and most delicate anatomical parts, Swammerdam was able to illustrate for the first time the complex internal structures of insects, including their reproductive organs; and to demonstrate the gradual development of an insect's adult form throughout all its larval stages. These observations are 'indubitable the foundation of our modern knowledge of the structure, metamorphosis and classification of insects' (Cole, p. 285). In addition Swammerdam performed valuable investigations of crustaceans, mollusks and frogs, and was the first to prove experimentally that muscles do not increase in bulk when contracted via nerve stimulation. "The 'Biblia naturae', Swammerdam's major work, was published fifty-five years after his death by Hermann Boerhave . the fifty-three copperplates were prepared under Swammerdam's direction from his own drawings" (Haskell F.

        Fasciculus Plantarum circa Harefield sponte nascentium. Cum Appendice, ad Loci Historiam spectante

      viii, 118 pp. Small 8vo, cont. mottled calf, double gilt fillet round sides, spine gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. London: H. Woodfall, Jr., 1737. First edition of this rare and early local English flora. Dedicated to Sir Hans Sloane, "the plants are alphabetically arranged and the names used are those of Caspar Bauhin&#39;s Pinax, Johnson&#39;s edition of Gerard&#39;s Herball, Parkinson&#39;s Theatrum, and other works in common use at the time. This catalogue gives a complete enumeration of the plants growing about Harefield, a parish in the extreme north-west of Middlesex, and it includes the precise locality of the rarer species. At the end of the list is an appendix giving short notes relating to Harefield."­Henrey, II, p. 58. Blackstone (1712-53), an apothecary in London, spent his holidays with his family at Harefield. Throughout his life he was a keen botanist and collector of plants; he corresponded with Sloane, Dillenius, and other noted botanists of the day. A very fine copy from the Macclesfield library with bookplate. Henrey 447. Hunt 500. .

        pl. 81 Garden Radish

      An exquisitly detailed hand colored botanical engraving by Elizabeth Blackwell from her book"A Curious Herbal Containing Five Hundred Cuts of the Most Useful Plants Which are Now Used in the Practice of Physick", which was published in London in 1737-39. Overal this print measures 11.25"x18". In 1737, Elizabeth produced a delightful volume, A Curious Herbal, containing many decorative plates of various plants. Such herbals, illustrating and describing plants for their alleged medicinal powers, were the medical books of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. The story of Blackwell?s book is particularly interesting.Talented and fiercely independent women seem to have flourished in the field of botanical illustration. Mrs. Blackwell - apparently neither an artist nor a botanist - was suddenly faced with the problem of obtaining her doctor husband?s release from a debtor?s prison, where he was languishing after an abortive foray into the printing business. On the advice of Sir Hans Sloane, the famous London Physician and patron of naturalists, who had told her that a herbal of medicinal plants was needed, the resourceful lady set herself up in lodgings near the Chelsea Physic Garden , founded by the Society of Apothecaries on a piece of land donated by Sloane, and proceeded to make drawings of the appropriate plants. The result of her initiative and labors was A Curious Herbal, with 500 hand-colored copperplate engravings. The indirect result was Dr. Alexander Blackwell?s release from prison. Her efforts on his behalf certainly seem worthwhile today to anyone looking at A Curious Herbal.    Overall this print is in good condition with some foxing/staining/creasing along margins. Some darker staining behind image.
