de l'imprimerie d'Abraham Boyve et compagnie, A Neufchatel 1744 - 2 vol. in-folio de (4)-VIII-(2)-707 pp. et 276-366-145-(1) pp., basane marbrée, dos orné à nerfs, tranches rouges (reliure de l'époque). Édition originale de la Bible d'Ostervald. Révision par Jean Frédéric Ostervald de la version de David Martin dont les Apocryphes, qui ont un faux titre et une pagination particulière, sont repris sans changement. J. F. Ostervald révise aussi ses Arguments et notes, qui accompagnaient jusqu'alors certaines éditions de David Martin. Le Nouveau Testament a un titre et une pagination propres. Titre illustré en rouge et noir. Surnommé le Grand Osterwald, figure centrale de l'Eglise neuchâteloise de la première moitié du XVIIIe siècle, il fut la cheville ouvrière d'un nombre important de réformes touchant l'instruction catéchistique, la liturgie, la formation ministérielle et l'exercice de la charge pastorale. Critique à l'égard de l'orthodoxie réformée à laquelle il reprochait, entre autres, une théologie trop abstraite et éloignée des préoccupations morales ainsi qu'une vie cultuelle peu propice à la vraie piété, il eut maille à partir, à plusieurs reprises, avec les théologiens bernois et zurichois. Il fut en revanche soutenu et encouragé par le Genevois Jean-Alphonse Turrettini et le Bâlois Samuel Werenfels avec lesquels il partageait l'espoir d'une réunification des protestants. Son adaptation en 1744 de la traduction de la Bible des pasteurs de Genève de 1724 est demeurée célèbre sous le nom de Bible d'Ostervald qui fut rééditée plus de quarante fois de 1744 à 1899.

Antique Master Print, titled: 'Fredericus Ruysch med. Doctor anatomiae [.].' - Portrait of Frederick Ruysch, the famous anatomist. Frederik Ruysch (Den Haag 1638 - Amsterdam 1731), was an anatomist, zoologist and botanist. He was the son of a government functionary, and trained as the pupil of a druggist. His interest in anatomy led him to study under Sylvius in Leiden, where he graduated on pleuritis in 1664. Ruysch devised a new method of preservation of specimens: arterial embalming using a secret recipe. Using this method he created a Cabinet, a museum in five rooms, where his specimens were exhibited. 'Ruysch' cabinet' or museum was described as a perfect necropolis, all the inhabitants of which were asleep and ready to speak as soon as they were reawakened', and attracted many visitors. His capacity for keen observation and his fabulous skill in injection made him the founder of eighteenth century anatomy. The illustrations are of a very high artistic merit. 'He gave private courses in anatomy to foreign students and devoted himself throughout his life to making anatomical preparations. Ruysch drew on his art not only for strict medical science but also for expression and fantasy. He often made up preparations in a rather romantic, dramatic way. He prepared as an example the corpse of a child as if it were alive so that Peter the Great was inclined to kiss it. In 1715 he announced the sale of his collection. No buyers presented themselves before 1717, when Peter the Great bought it for 30.000 guilders. It was carefully packed and transported by boat to Russia. The tal … [Click Below for Full Description]
