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's Pinax, Johnson's edition of Gerard's Herball, Parkinson'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.

      For A. Bettesworth, and C. Hitch, London 1737 - In two volumes. Translated from the original French. First English edition. Folio (13 1/2 x 8 3/4 inches; 342 x 224 mm). [6], 228, 225-235, [362], 263-266, 241-246; [2], 1-223, [1, blank], 11, index, [1, blank] pp. In volume I, page 229-250 are misnumbered, however collates correctly. Heavily illustrated with 322 copperplate engravings, including frontispiece, frontispiece portrait, three double page maps, 44 intertextual illustrations and 275 illustrations on 114 plates, 262 of which are numbered. Of these 114 plates, 56 are double page, 45 are single page and 13 are large folding plates. Included in these large folding plates are very large pullout panoramic views of "Sphan", "Moskow." Bound in newer full calf. Boards double-ruled in gilt. Spines stamped and numbered in gilt. With original brown spine labels, lettered in gilt. All edges speckled red. A bit of foxing and toning throughout, however in general the text is very clean. The majority of the plates are quite clean, some occasional toning. The two pull-out panoramas of "Sphan" and "Moskow" with some repairs to closed tears and well as some dampstaining and marginal repairs. A few instances of marginal cracking throughout, but overall very firm. A few plates bound out of sequence, as usual, images fine and clean, impressions vivid. Some leaves mis-paginated, as printed. One small (1/8" ¿ ½") ink stain (possibly by original printer) to outer right margin of last few pages of vol. 1. Preface page hinge separated from portrait, but tightly bound to spine (as seen in photo) and insignificant. A very good copy. Primarily a landscape painter, Le Bruyn began his journey to Russia in the summer of 1701, at the age of 50, leaving Amsterdam to undertake what would become a seven-year trip to the East-Indies "by way of Muscovy and Persia." The text includes his observations on cities, customs, flora and fauna, and antiquities, particularly the ruins of Persopolis. He was quite possibly the first European to visit Pasargarde. The beautiful copperplate engravings depict portraits, views, buildings, ruins, flora and fauna, and are the same plates that were used in the French edition. Originally published in Dutch (1711) and then in French (1718), this English edition is translated from the French. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        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 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.

      1737 - A Paris, Chez Guillaume Cavellier, 1737. In-quarto (204 X 255) veau fauve granité, dos cinq nerfs, caissons dorés, pièce de titre maroquin ocre, coupes ornées, tranches mouchetées rouge (reliure de l'époque) ; (1) f. blanc, XXVI (dont titre) pages, (1) f. de corrections et additions, 630 pages, (1) f. d'approbation et privilège, 4 cartes et 6 planches hors-texte. Ex-libris manuscrit à l'encre noire sur la première contregarde. Coiffe inférieure refaite. EDITION ORIGINALE ornée de 10 PLANCHES gravées sur vélin fort dont 4 CARTES à double page (dont deux du cartographe Jean-Baptiste Nolin gravées par Aubin) et 6 planches dépliantes gravées sur cuivre (fontaines de Fontest-Orbe et de Fonsanche, machine à canaliser une fontaine, coupe et plan des bains de Balaruc, meule à broyer le pastel, outils divers). Si Jean Astruc (1684-1766) fut avant tout un éminent médecin et l'un des pionniers de l'exégèse moderne, on fait de nos jours l'éloge de son travail scientifique qui contient de nombreux détails curieux sur la région languedocienne. Son ouvrage est composé en trois parties : Mémoires de géographie (essentiellement sur le Languedoc), Mémoires de physique (fontaines, bains, vents, etc.) et Mémoires de littérature (étude linguistique sur les rapports entre langue celtique et langue d'Oc, superstitions et légendes en Languedoc, mais également étude sur les poissons fossiles et la pêche du mulet dans les étangs de Lates, etc.). Astruc est le premier qui ait donné une explication scientifique du phénomène de la fontaine de Fontestorbes (Ariège), habitée selon la légende par des fées qui y venaient laver leur linge à l'aide de battoirs en or. On notera également un très intéressant chapitre sur la culture et la préparation du pastel (pages 323 à 331). Cet ouvrage, d'une vaste érudition, est devenu RARE. Provenance : exemplaire de Jean-Baptiste Marduel (1699-1770), docteur en Sorbonne et curé de Saint-Roch. (BARBIER, III, 234 - CIORANESCU, 8632). FINE COPY. PICTURES AND MORE DETAILS ON REQUEST.

        Le Cheval seul, sans personne dessus. Monseigneur le Marquis travaille es tant a pied, et le Capitaine Mazin hy ayde. 20.

      London. 1737 - Mounted size: 73 x 61cm. Very good condition. Copperplate engraving with later hand colour. This striking print shows the Duke, aided by the Captain Mazin and a groom, training a riderless horse. The print is from the 1737 English edition of Cavendish's exposition on the theory and practice of equestrian dressage.
