He authored many books bringing light to the cruel abuses of animal experimentation and calling for regulation. At the same time he sought middle ground between the antivivisection societies which called for the abolition of all experimentation and those who rejected any restraints. Leffingwell also was concerned with meat safety, believing that lax regulations, in particular allowing cancerous animals into the food chain, were responsible for increases in the incidence of cancer.

        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, Swammerdam's major work, was published fifty-seven years after his death by Herman Boerhaave, who assembled it from unpublished manuscript materials integrated with a slightly revised version of Swammerdam's 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)." (<i>The Early Enlightenment in the Dutch Republic, 1650-1750</i>, pp. 92-94).. 4to (197 x 150 mm), contemporary full calf, outer front hinge starting, lower capital chipped, but in all a fine and unrestored copy, text fresh and clean, plates with some light browning.

        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.

        An Account of the War in India, between the English and the French, on the Coast of Coromandel from the Year 1750 to the Year 1760. Together with A Relation of the late Remarkable Events on the Malabar Coast, and Expeditions to Golconda and Surat

      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.

        Opera, sive exercitatio anatomica. De motu cordis . . . atque exercitationes duae anatomicae

      Leiden: Johannes van Kerckhem, 1737. Fine. 2 vols., 4to. [16], 167, [1]; [24], 404, [38]pp. 2 engraved plates in Vol. I. Leiden: J. van Kerckhem, 1737. 210 x 165 mm. 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).

(Erklärungen zu den Tafeln.), 53 Kupfertaf. (Taf. 52 erst am Schluss eingebunden), Neuere (ca. 1880), schlichte HLdr.-Bde., Deckel min. berieben, minimal stockfleckig, Ecken etwas gestaucht.

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. Norman Library of Science & Medicine, 2037) 8000 gr. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        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.

And embelished with above 320 copper plates, representing the finest Prospects, and most considerable Cities in those Parts; the different Habits of the People; the singular and extraordinary Birds, Fishes, and Plants which are there to be found: As likewise the Antiquities of those Countries, and particularly the noble Ruins of the famous Palace of Persepolis, called Chelminar by the Persians. The whole being delineated on the Spot, from the respective Objects. To which is added, an account of the journey of Mr. Isbrants, Ambassador from Muscovy, through Russia and Tartary, to China.

      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]
