Prima ed unica edizione di quest’importante opera medica del celebre medico e poeta bresciano il Conte Francesco Roncalli (Brescia, 1692 – 1763 o 1769), noto anche come Francesco Roncalli Parolino, Francesco Parolino Roncalli e Francesco Roncalli Parolini. L’autore, allievo a Padova del Valisnieri, si distinse per varie opere a carattere medico fra le quali, oltre a quella qui presentata, "Medicina Europae" e "Nosocomium locupletatum". Ampiamente apprezzato come medico e studioso venne chiamato alla corte di Spagna diventando il medico personale del Re di Spagna e per i suoi meriti medici venne anche insignito del titolo di Conte di Polonia dal Principe di Sassonia Federicus Christianus, Re di Polonia e Grande Elettore. Appassionato di botanica scrisse anche una celebre opera dedicata alla flora bresciana "Plantarum in agro brixiano situs, et vires". Il De Renzi (vol V, pp. 148 e 554) così scrive del Roncalli: " fu medico dotto ed operosissimo, ed acquistò molta fama per aver concepito e menato a termine un disegno utilissimo in quel tempo: quello cioè di raccogliere le relazioni de’ principali medici di Europa sulla medicina de’ propri paesi, indicando le condizioni topografiche, le malattie endemiche o più frequenti ed i metodi più in uso nel medicare". L’opera qui presentata tratta in forma di epistole latine, numerose affezioni, tra le quali gli aneurismi, malattie cutanee, l’epilessia, la melanconia, l’ipocondria, l’apoplessia, la scrofola, la miopia, la sifilide, l’asma, i tumori, la lombaggine, la nefrite, varie malattie ginecologiche, etc. ed è considerata un sunto del pensiero medico dell’epoca. Fra gli autori corrispondenti delle "Epistole" si trovano i grandi medici dell’epoca come Paolo Valcarenghi, Carlo Francesco Cogrossi, Andrea Pasta, Giovanni Battista Morgagni, Giovanni Battista Mazzini, Antonio Leprotti ed altri. Rif. Bibl.: Hirsch-H, IV, 511; Wellcome, IV, 554; Rappaport 387 che descrive l’opera come molto importante; Blake, 387; Non in Garrison-Morton e in Waller; Osler, 3830: "I know no work of exactly the same lines".

        Statutes and constitutions of the Devon and Exeter Hospital, at Exeter; with the rules and orders for the government and conduct of the house, &c. Published by order of a General Court of Governors, Aug. 27. 1741. being the day on which the hospital was founded.

      n.p. [Exeter?] Printed in the year 1741. 4to., (2) + 25 + (5)pp., remains of old blue wrappers adhering to the blank recto of first leaf and the blank verso of final leaf, fairly recent cloth-backed marbled boards with morocco label on upper cover lettered in gilt. A fine, crisp, copy. First edition. The Devon and Exeter was a typical 18th century charitable foundation, this being its founding document. Dr. Alured Clarke (1696-1742), Church of England clergyman and benefactor, 'prebendary of Winchester and Westminster was the driving force in the movement to found a hospital at Winchester, and, after his promotion to be Dean of Exeter, he repeated his achievement with the Devon and Exeter hospital, which was opened for patients on New Year's Day, 1743.' [David Owen, English philanthropy, 1660-1960,> p.39]. The 'rules and orders for the government and conduct of the house>' make fascinating reading, some parts being undoubtedly relevant to the management of hospitals today. There are 16 specific rules for the official house-visitors, the visitors being required to visit every day before dinner and enquiry about the running of the hospital. One of the requirements (Rule no.3) was to report 'whether the patients have been well and orderly attended, by the physicians and surgeons, as well as by the apothecary, nurses, and servants'. There is a table of 20 detailed rules for the admission and discharge of patients, a table of 6 rules for the physicians, 5 rules for the surgeons, 8 rules for the house-apothecary, and 8 rules for the matron (responsible for furniture and household goods, provisions, diet-book, keys and security, names of patients, behaviour of nurses and servants, &c.). The nurses themselves were subject to 8 rules (Rule 5 stating 'that the nurses and other servants, be very diligent in complying with the orders of the matron, and their other superiors; and that they behave themselves with tenderness to the patients, and with civility and respect to all strangers.' And there were, of course, sets of rules for the in-patients, the out-patients, and the messenger and porter. At the end are supplied tables of diets (full diet, low diet, milk diet, and dry diet) for breakfast, dinner, and supper for each day of the week. * Exeter Central Library does, however, hold a 4-page pamphlet, undated, but probably 1740, being An account of the Devon and Exeter Hospital which is proposed to be erected on the plan of the County Hospital at Winchester, and supported by voluntary contributions.> Another copy is held at Newberry.

        VOYAGE DE NICOLAS KLIMIUS DANS LE MONDE SOUTERRAIN, CONTENANT UNE NOUVELLE TEORIE DE LA TERRE, ET L'HISTOIRE D'UNE CINQUIÊME MONARCHIE INCONNUE JUSQU' A' - PRESENT. OUVRAGE TIRÉ DE LA BIBLIOTHÉQUE DE MR. B. ABELIN; et Traduit du Latin par Mr. de Mauvillon

      Copenhage: Chez Jaques Preuss, 1741.. Small octavo, pp. [1-6] [1] 2-388, four inserted plates, one folded, title page printed in red and black, eighteenth century full calf, spine panel tooled in gold and blind, reddish brown title piece. First edition in French. Holberg's Niels Klim is the first important fictional use of astronomer Edmond Halley's theory (suggested in a paper to account for magnetic phenomena published by Royal Society in 1692) that the Earth (and the other planets) consisted of concentric, nested spheres surrounding a small central sun, with, possibly, openings at the poles. Holberg's satire was first published in Latin to gain a wide audience, which it did. The book was never banned in Denmark, though it was unpopular among religious powers of the time. "Holberg was one of the leading scholars and playwrights of the eighteenth century, perhaps the chief literary figure in Denmark to date. Niels Klim has been translated into at least thirteen languages and published in more than sixty editions, including at least eight in English. It is in the genre of the imaginary voyage which has been so much a part of utopian writing from its very beginnings. In this case the voyage to the interior of the earth comes about when Niels Klim falls down a shaft and finds himself in a new world. He visits a number of different countries including Potu the ideal state, which expels him for suggesting that women should not hold public office. Other states are modeled on various terrestrial countries; in Martinia (France) he is honored for inventing the periwig. In primitive Quama (Russia) he becomes emperor by leading the inhabitants to victory over neighboring nations, but rebellion against his tyranny forces him to flee. His journey ends when he crawls through another hole and finds himself back in Norway ... Scholars have pointed out numerous resemblances to Gulliver's Travels, and there are, indeed, many similarities. Perhaps the chief difference is that Swift was concerned with the behavior of individuals and Holberg with that of society." - Lewis, Utopian Literature, p. 92. "Essentially a satire on European culture and institutions in the guise of an imaginary voyage. It was translated into Danish not long after the Latin publication, and in Denmark its acceptance has paralleled that of Swift's Gulliver's Travels in the English-speaking world ... Holberg's work is an obvious imitation of Swift's Gulliver's Travels, and a comparison is called for. Holberg's satire is wider in scope, more penetrating in analysis, and less local than Swift's; the peculiarly British elements in Swift are not paralleled by Scandinavian elements in Holberg, who also lacks Swift's misanthropy. In imagination and literary polish, however, Swift is superior to Holberg." - Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 1114. Aldiss and Wingrove, Trillion Year Spree, pp. 78-9. Anatomy of Wonder (1976) 1-21; (1981) 1-100; (1987) 1-50; 6-346; and 6-390; (1995) 1-50; and (2004) II-536. Clute and Nicholls (eds), The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction (1993), p. 577.

One of the three translations from the Latin original published in 1741, the others being German and Dutch translations; the work was not published in Danish or English until the following year.

        Tabula selenographica in qua Lunarium macularum exacta descriptio

      Norimberga 1741 - Mappa lunare secondo Johannes Hevelius (sinistra) e Giovanni Battista Riccioli (destra). Questa incisione venne stampata per la prima volta nel Neuer Atlas di Homann (1707) e ristampata nel suo Atlas von hundert Charter (1712), nonché nel Grossen Atlas (1716). Striking pair of maps depicting the surface of the moon, based upon the models of Johannes Hevelius and Giovanni Battista Riccioli. The two spheres of the moon provide a comparative analysis of the topographical information and nomenclature of Riccioli and Hevelius. Between the two spheres is a model showing the phases of the moon, with the different lunar phases represented in the four corners of the image. The map is further embellished with cherubs using a telescope and Diana, the lady of the moon. In 1647 Johannes Hevelius, a brewer from Gdansk, published his Selenographia, the first treatise devoted entirely to the moon. The work included for only the second time a single map that showed all the features of the moon equally clearly--a composite view that pictured the Moon in a way it never appeared in reality, but was accurate in its placement of individual features. Hevelius was truly a remarkable man of science, who made his own lenses, constructed his own telescopes, observed the Moon on every clear night for several years, drew his observations, engraved them himself, and had the wealth to publish a sumptuous book at his own expense. In Selenographia , Hevelius presented graphical depictions of every conceivable phase of the Moon, as well as three large plates of the full Moon: the first showing the ways the full Moon actually appeared through the telescope, th second showing the way a maker of terrestrial maps might represent it (using the conventions of geographers), and the third being a composite map of all lunar features illuminated (impossibly) from the same side. It is this last map that was to be used by astronomers during lunar eclipses. Hevelius also suggested a system of nomenclature based on earthly features. Hevelius founded the science of selenography (after Selene, the goddess of the Moon) and showed astronomers how to represent heavenly bodies. All lunar maps since his time have used the convention of single illumination (although while he used morning illumination, modern maps use evening illumination after Van Langren's model). Hevelius also instituted the practice of showing the entire lunar surface visible from the Earth, which, because of librations, is greater than a hemisphere. Hevelius's nomenclature, although used in Protestant countries until the eighteenth century, was replaced by the system published in 1651 by the Jesuit astronomer Giovanni Battista Riccioli, who gave the large naked-eye spots the names of seas (Sea of Tranquillity, Sea of Storm, etc.) and the telescopic spots (now called craters) the names of philosophers and astronomers. It should be pointed out that although Riccioli wrote his Almagestum Novum in which his map appeared to combat the Copernican theory, he was evenhanded in assigning names: Copernicus and Kepler were assigned prominent craters, and even Galileo received his due. Giovanni Battista Riccioli first published his map of the moon in Almagestum nouum, published in Bologna in 1651. The Riccioli moon map is historically of great importance, as it provides the basis for the system of lunar nomenclature still in use. It is more properly referred to as the Riccioli/Grimaldi map, since the Jesuit optician Francesco Grimaldi was apparently responsible for the map itself, while fellow-Jesuit Riccioli invented the names (and wrote the book in which the map appeared). Thus the Sea of Tranquility (Mare Tranquillitatis) traversed by the Apollo astronauts acquired its name here, as Mare Tranquillitatis, as did such prominent lunar craters as Plato, Ptolemaeus, and Tycho. Copperplate with fine original hand colour, with margins, in very good condition. Whitfield, Mapping of the Heavens, pp. 93, 96-97. Tooley, R.V., Maps

The New Testament was first published in 1522 and the complete Bible, containing the Old and New Testaments and Apocrypha, in 1534. Gestochen von Johann Martin BERNIGEROTH (1713-1767) Johann Martin Bernigeroth (* 7. November 1713 in Leipzig; † 22. Februar 1767 ebenda) war ein deutscher Kupferstecher. Johann Martin Bernigeroth war ein Sohn des Kupferstechers Martin Bernigeroth und dessen zweiter Ehefrau Rosine Katharina, Tochter des Leipziger Kaufmanns Ettel. Er wurde in der Werkstatt des Vaters ausgebildet und übernahm diese später gemeinsam mit seinem Bruder Johann Benedikt (1716-1764). Nach französischen Vorbildern verfeinerte er seine Technik hinsichtlich der Ausstattung und der Wiedergabe von Stoffen. Er schuf zahlreiche Porträts und Buchvignetten. Einen Ruf nach Sankt Petersburg lehnte er ab und erhielt dafür den Titel eines Hofkupferstechers. Während des Siebenjährigen Krieges stach er anonym 80 Schlachtenpläne, die er 1763 geschlossen als „Neues Kriegs-Theater" herausgab. Bernigeroth war seit 1735 verheiratet mit Rahel Charlotte Buchner, Tochter eines Leipziger Krämers. Sein Sohn Martin Friedrich (1737-1801) war ebenfalls Kupferstecher und später Zeichenlehrer in der Schweiz. The project absorbed Luther's later years.[4] Thanks to the then recently invented printing press,[5] the result was widely disseminated and contributed significantly to the development of today's modern High German language.

        Rivierlandschap - Jacob Cats.

      Rivierlandschap met twee melkmeisjes, tekening met pen en aquarel van de hand van Jacob Cats (Altona 1741 ? Amsterdam 1799). Afm. 16,5 x 24,4 cm. Geannoteerd ?J. Cats? linksonder.Jacob Cats was de zoon van de Amsterdamse boekhandelaar Johannes Cats die vanwege het uitgeven van een aantal geestelijke liederen het land had moeten verlaten. Jacob werkte in een met bevriende financiers opgerichte behangselfabriek, waar hij met zijn toen in de mode zijnde landschappen gestoffeerd met figurenen vee indruk maakte. Voor zijn oorspronkelijke tekenenwerk kwam steeds meer waardering en hij kreeg van alle kanten bestellingen. Na een tijd kon hij zich van de beslommeringen van de behangselfabriek ontdoen en zich met verve op zijn mooie tekeningen richten. Cats tekende weinig topografisch, maar wel zeer schilderachtig.Over Jacob Cats schrijft J. Immerzeel in 1842: ?Zijne teekeningen, die door getrouwheid aan de natuur en naauwkeurige berwerkingzich onderscheiden, blijven bestendig in achting en vinden steeds tot goede prijzen gretig koopers onder zoodanige liefhebbers, die, ofschoon den hedendaasche veranderende smaak op prijs stellende, nogtans inzien, dat men op verschillende wijzen verdienstelijk kunstwerk vervaardigen kan.?Prijs: ?3.850,- (incl. lijst).

      Artist: Winter Johann Wilhelm Nuremberg; issued in : Nuremberg; date: 1741 - - technic: Copper print; colorit: colored; condition: Right lower corners replaced, tear; size (in cm): 37 x 27 - description: Portrait of Johannes Babtista Homann.Johann Babtiste Homann (1664-1724) was born in Oberkammlach, the Electorate of Bavaria. Although educated at a Jesuit school, and preparing for an ecclesiastical career, he eventually converted to Protestantism and from 1687 worked as a civil law notary in Nuremberg. He soon turned to engraving and cartography; in 1702 he founded his own publishing house.Homann acquired renown as a leading German cartographer, and in 1715 was appointed Imperial Geographer by Emperor Charles VI. Giving such privileges to individuals was an added right that the Holy Roman Emperor enjoyed. In the same year he was also named a member of the Prussian Academy of Sciences in Berlin. Of particular significance to cartography were the imperial printing privileges (Latin: privilegia impressoria). These protected for a time the authors in all scientific fields such as printers, copper engravers, map makers and publishers. They were also very important as a recommendation for potential customers.In 1716 Homann published his masterpiece Grosser Atlas ueber die ganze Welt (Grand Atlas of all the World). Numerous maps were drawn up in cooperation with the engraver Christoph Weigel the Elder, who also published Siebmachers Wappenbuch.Homann died in Nuremberg. He was succeeded by the Homann heirs company, which was in business until 1848. The company was known as Homann Erben, Homanniani Heredes, or Heritiers de Homann abroad.
