        Anatomische Tabellen, nebst den dazu gehörigen Anmerkungen u. Kupfern, Daraus des ganzen menschlichen Körpers Beschaffenheit und Nutzen deutlich zu ersehen ...

      Siebente verbesserte Aufl. - Augsburg, Elias Tobias Lotter, 1764, Kl.8, 3 Bl., 196 pp., 8 Bl.Register, 5 gefalt. Tab., 28 auf 26 Kupferstichtafeln, Ledereinband der Zeit mit Rückenvergoldung minimal fleckig. Frühe Ausgabe des bekanntesten Kompendiums der Anatomie des 18.Jahdts.Johann Adam Kulmus aus Breslau (1689-1745) studierte an verschiedenen europäischen Universitäten. Nach einer Studienreise durch Holland war er als Arzt in Danzig tätig. Durch holländische Seefahrer gelangte sein Werk auch nach Japan und wurde übersetzt und unter dem Titel "Kaitai shinsho" von R.Mayeno herausgegeben. Dieses Buch war der Grundstein westlicher Medizin in Japan. *Kulmus practised at Danzig and his Tabulae anatomicae were very popular and have been repeatedly reprinted and translated. The "Anatomische Tabellen" were even translated into Japanese, after a Japanese physician named MAYENO had satisfied himself by a dissection of a Japanese woman, Aocha-Baba, that they presented the true anatomical relations, and thus demonstrated that such anatomy as had been taught in Japan up to that time was absoltely false. cf. Hirsch-H. III, 632 Choulant-Frank p.34.

        The Edinburgh Paradise regain'd, or the city set at liberty, to propagate and improve her trade and commerce. Being a curious dissertation thereon, and discovery of the disease that obstructs the growth and progress thereof. And an effectual remedy and cure therefor, by redressing and removing her grievances. . The city standing on a hill, set on a plain. An inland city immediately commence a maritime one, so as to join, and communicate, with the most navigable river in all Britain. The city beautified and adorned, for the more commodious entertainment of our patriot nobility and gentry, and inviting them to frequent their own metropolis, as before the incorporate Union. And all this done in a frugal, surprisingly cheap and far more easy wa

      Edinburgh 1764 - 8vo., 28 + (2)pp. and with the folding engraved plan (shaved at one edge just touching part of ruled border), title-page a little soiled, in old (19th century?) linen-backed boards, upper joint worn, nonetheless a good copy. Only edition. A now uncommon and rather charming essay proposing various economic and engineering solutions to the Edinburgh 'disease' - a dirty crowded city in dire need of expansion and economic revival. Mein bemoans the fact that the city had gained much less from the Act of Union than any other city in Britain or Ireland and that the several small Scottish towns were vibrant with trade and were thus putting Edinburgh to shame. 'That this disease has such effect upon this city, as incapacitates and dispirits her trading inhabitants is too evident to be denied, for if we look but a little about us, go but to Newcastle upon Tyne, or a little westward to Kendal, Whitehaven, Liverpool, Manchester, or such like in South Britain, to Dumfries, Glasgow, Aberdeen, or such like in North-Britain; yea, the petty town of Dalkeith our door-neighbour. From these places you will see carravans of carriers with pack horses, waggons, &c. with all sorts of merchandize sent from their shops and warehouses, to furnish the inland country market-towns, and gentlemen's houses, with goods and merchandize, their roads thronged with such carriages; but nothing like that from our merchants shops in Edinburgh .' [pp. 6-7]. Robert Mein had also published The city cleaned and country improven> (Edinburgh 1760). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Verbesserter Schleswig-Holsteinischer Schreib-Calender, Aufs Jahr Christi 1765.

      Altona: Gebruder Burmester, 1764. First edition. Cloth. Blindstamped and gilt impressed. Decorated calf slipcase. Very Good. Near Miniature, 81 by 53 mm. Unpaginated, 42 leaves with content (including title), with six hand-colored plates, the first of which is double paged. Also five other plates -- putty colored lined, not black and white. There are copies, not many, of this annual to be found on OCLC, but none for this year, and we believe others do not have hand-colored plates. The plates are further enriched with tiny silver sparkles, easy to miss in leafing swiftly through the pages but sure to catch the eye with a glance that is more than cursory. We have seldom encountered such an arresting dressing to color plates, and never, in plates of this age. The colored plates depict hedonistic scenes and/or frivolity, perhaps a Teutonic corollary to the playful scenes captured by Boucher and Fragonard. The reddish printed plates, on the other hand, are mostly religious in their content. The textual content is not quite the standard almanac fare. In this almanac weather predictions are furnished for days far in the future to when it was written. As these predictions were for whole weeks, though, they had to have been discounted as somewhat meaningless at the time. An expository piece concerns the postal service of Hamburg, which was then, as now, the largest city of the region. The gilt decoration on the cover is very much in the Rococo style. The leather case, in partial contrast, is dominated by a irregular shapes that nonetheless read as geometric, with gilt floral flourishes serving as a more secondary decoration. The case has a film of soiling that dulls the colors and darkens its white background; it remains, nonetheless, an appealing, and structurally sound, house for the diminutive almanac. Minor loss of the cloth on the spine. There is a small closed tear at the fold of the double paged color plate.

Text in Swedish. This is the first Swedish edition of Byron's A Voyage round the World(the first English edition was published in London by Newbery in 1767). The translationwas made by the Swedish geographer Daniel Djurberg. Unrecorded in Australian collections. The version of Robinson Crusoe contained in this Sammelband is the second edition of this particular Swedish translation, the first having been published in 1752. An abbreviated translation had been made earlier, in 1738. A modern researcher, Margareta Winqvist, has noted that Robinson's birth date in this edition is given as 6 November 1632 (instead of 30 September), so that it coincides with the date of King Gustavus Adolphus' death. Unrecorded in Australian collections. The third work contained in the Sammelband is an imaginary voyage by the Copenhagen-based Norwegian writer Ludvig Holberg, which originally appeared in Latin (Copenhagen and Leipzig : Jacob Preuss, 1741). The present edition is the first Swedish translation of Nicolae Klimii iter subterraneum(Niels Klim's underground travels), generally regarded as one of the most influential works in the imaginary voyage genre. Its protagonist, Niels Klim, falls down a shaft and finds himself in the Utopian state of Potu, the characteristics of which provide the author with plenty of scope for satirical commentary on European society and mores of the time.Unrecorded in Australian collections.

        Two finely illustrated scrolls with 35 scenes in ink and color entitled "Ezo shima kikan" or "Ezo to kikan" ("Strange sights in the island of Ezo"), by Okumaru Hata. Two scrolls, 300 x 9110 mm. & 300 x 9540 mm. [Japan: ca. 1818-43]

      Large-scale colonization of Hokkaido Island ("Ezo") began in the mid-18th century. Hata (1764-1808), a Tokugawa bakufu official who served in Hokkaido from 1798-1800, wrote a self-illustrated text concerning the ethnology of the Ainu, the aboriginal inhabitants of the island. A copy of his manuscript was prepared ca. 1800 with woodblock illustrations and the only known copy was in the Hyde collection (sold Christie's NY, 7 October 1988, lot 48 for $66,000). A series of manuscript copies of Hata's original manuscript were made and circulated, each with notable variations. Our two scrolls are remarkably complete. The first scroll begins with a preface describing the long history of Japan's relations with Hokkaido (the Japanese were extremely anxious about Russia colonizing the island and were justifying their own territorial claims). Described also are the various rulers of the Matsumae fiefdom, which had been granted exclusive trading rights with the Ainu. The reason for the compilation of these texts was the official visit of the current lord Akihiro Matsumae who was making a tour of the southern part of the island which his clan controlled. Each fine brush and color illustration is prefaced with explanatory text. In the first scroll, we find a depiction of the mythological beginnings of Ezo, a tribal leader (with detailed descriptions of his clothes and language), his wife (describing her clothes and accessories), tattooed hand (how and why the Ainu do tattoos), ceremonial head wear, a necklace, a ceremonial tool, a sea otter, a group of Ainu leaders, a dance performed in front of the leaders, Ainu men and women drinking an alcoholic beverage, a native playing a long stringed instrument (with lyrics of the songs played), another drinking scene with three men clearly inebriated, a family (with extended comments on the polygamous structure of families), weapons (bows and arrows), and a scene of archery practice. The second scroll begins with a discussion of the medicinal value of the sea otter's liver. This is followed by a winter scene showing seven Ainu men preparing to launch their boats to hunt for sea otters, a government office where men are exchanging otters for rice and tobacco, an account of bear hunting with a depiction of a captured bear for the festivity of offering the bear to the gods, the sacrifice of the bear (I will not describe this but it is "special"), the scene of offering the dead bear to the gods, a banquet with Japanese visitors, Ainu houses, a religious house (exterior and interior views), religious rituals, Ainu games, "wishing a safe trip" to a group of hunters on a boat, etc. The beginning brocade endpapers of the scrolls are rather wormed but the illustrations and text are untouched. The backs of both scroll are flecked with mica.

        The Works of Jacob Behmen, the Teutonic Theosopher

      Four volumes. Quarto, bound in uniform later half sheep with five raise bands and gilt models on spines, title and number of volumes engraved in gilt, with pebbled fabric boards, edges stained red, expertly restored at spines.First collected edition in English of the works of Jacob Boehme, and the first to issue the fantastic occult copper engravings with multipled overlays. The three plates which reveal the Inner Man in his condition before the Fall, after it and in his Regenerated State are in perfect condition, quite uncommon for this work. Complete sets like this one are extremley rare.Illustrated with an engraved frontispiece portrait of Boehme and 25 engraved plates. There are 13 plates to "An illustration of the Deep Principles in figures left by the reverend William Law", and also two plates with superb handcolouring, one at the end of Vol I, the other at the end of Vol IV. The plates are not misbound, as in other copies, all beeing placed in their proper place. Some light toning to paper and a very few short tears repaired, a few spots to content due to the quality of paper, overall a fine set.Contents: Volume I: 1. The Aurora. 2. The Three Principles. 3. Life of the Author by Reverend Law. Frontispiece of Boehme and four plates,two at the end of the volume, one double-page and folding, with moveable flaps, the other hand-coloured. Volume II: 1. The Threefold Life of Man. 2. The Answers to Forty Questions Concerning the Soul. 3. The Treatise of the Incarnation. 4. The Clavis, or an Explanation of Some Principal Points and Expressions in His Writings. With 15 plates, including the 13 plates of "An illustration of the deep principles of Jacob Behmen". Volume III: 1. The Mysterium Magnum, or an Explanation of the First Book of Moses, Called Genesis, in Three Parts. 2. Four Tables of Divine Revelation. Three plates with intricate overlays and folding parts. Volume IV: 1. Signatura Rerum, the Signature of All Things. 2. Of the Election of Grace, or of God's Will towards Man, Commonly Called Predestination (with the "Appendix to the Book of Election"). 3. The Way to Christ. 4. A Discourse between a Soul Hungry and Thirsty after the Fountain of Life, the Sweet Love of Jesus Christ, and a Soul Enlightened. 5. Of the Four Complexions. 6. Of Christ's Testaments, Baptism and the Supper. Three plates, one folding and hand-colored. Volumes III and IV are second issue.The 3 plates in Volume III, Mysterium Magnum, are astonishing in thei conception. It has been suggested that Rubens or some pupil or follower of his provided the drawings for these copper-plate engravings" (Hall, Alchemy, 45). Blake praised too the figures in this edition as being very beautiful; 'Michelangelo could not have done better." (G.E.Bentley, A Blake Bibliography, no.559). Bentley notes also that during Blake's lifetime these designs by D. A. Freher were printed only in the "Law edition" of Boehme's works, so it seems that Blake actually owned a set of this 1764-81 edition. These remarkable illustrations, printed only in this edition, help to elucidate Boehme's complex theories. In a way these are similar to those other fantastic engravings which were printed in Gichtel's "Eine kurtze Eröffnung und Anweisung der dreyen Principien und Welten im Menschen" published in Leiden in 1723, only that here, compared with Gichtel's work, the plates are folding, revealing by the flaps opening one after another the secrets of inner alchemy. Jacob Boehme (1575-1624), german visionary, is considered the founder of the german theosophy, which is a mystical theology. He began his career as a master shoemaker. The decisive event in Boehme's life occurred in 1600: "One day while sitting in his room in a state of melancholy, his eyes by chance caught the sunlight reflected from a pewter dish. His soul was immediately ushered into a mystical vision, and he maintained that the innermost part of the secrets of nature as well as the true nature of good and evil were revealed to him. In a quarter of an hour, he saw and knew more than he could have learned by years of study in the universities. At first full of doubt, he soon became convinced that he had received the gift of vision. When it was upon him, he could penetrate into the very heart and being of all things in creation"Despite his rejection during his life, Boehme's works were highly influential on subsequent thinkers, including Swedenborg, Schopenhauer, Nietzsche, Schelling, Heidegger and C. G. Jung. He was considered by Hegel "the first german philosopher" and by Schelling "an wonderful apparition in the history of mankind, and especially, in the history of german spirit". His teachings were echoed later in the writings of Friedrich Christoph Oetinger and Franz von Baader. He also influenced the development of high grade Freemasonry. At the same time occult researchers hold in high esteem his writings, M. A. Atwood, author of a remarkable work on spiritual alchemy considering him "the deepest writer on ontological subjects" (Apendix (49) to A Suggestive Inquiry into the Hermetic Mystery, William Tait 1918).Caillet, Manuel Bibliographique des Sciences Psychiques ou Occultes, 1289; Pritchard 331; Bentley, Blake Bibliography, 559; (photos available on request)

Per la prima volta furono edite dall’editore Giovanni Bouchard nel 1751 (34 lastre), successivamente dallo stesso Piranesi editore a Palazzo Tomati in Roma (scritta che appare su molte tavole), fino alla stesura definitiva composta da 137 lastre. Successivamente alla morte dell’autore le lastre furono ereditate dal figlio Francesco, che ne curò la pubblicazione prima nella capitale, e successivamente a Parigi. Le lastre furono poi acquisite dalla Calcografia Camerale, oggi Calcografia Nazionale, dove sono tuttora conservate. Le opere che proponiamo fanno parte di un album nella stesura definitiva, stampato a Roma tra il 1770 ed il 1780. - FIRST STATE OF FOUR - Etching and engraving, 1764, signed on plate.

Two more works have been subsequently added, two plates by his son Francesco. They have been printed for the first time in 1751 (34 plates) by the editor Giovanni Bouchard, afterwards by Piranesi himself, publisher in Palazzo Tomati in Rome (as it is written on m,any plates), until the final edition of 137 plates. After Piranesi's death, his son Francesco inherited the plates, editing them first in Rome and then in Paris.

Burckhard Helmstadii 1764) am vorderen Innendeckel. BLC 6,157. Hirsch 1,110. Ferguson: Bibliographical notes on histories of invention and books of secrets 5,6ff. - A (1657-1712), niederländischer Gelehrter, Professor für Medizin, Geschichte u. Griechischen Sprache, erklärt in vorliegendem Werk, dass die meisten zeitgenössischen medizinischen Entdeckungen bereits in der Antike bekannt waren und erstellt im zweiten Teil des Werkes mit eigenem Titelblatt u. eigener Zählung "Rerum Inventarum Onomasticon" eine alphabetische Aufstellung jener Entdeckungen u. der dazugehörigen Zitate. A., der mütterlicherseits aus der Familie der bedeutenden Amsterdamer Druckerfamilie Janssonius stammte, verfügte sichtlich auch über ausgedehnte bibliographische Kenntnisse. Die "Inventa nov-antiqua" von Ferguson als "remarkable contribution to the history of discovery" bezeichnet, spielten zweifellos ihre Rolle in der zeitgenössischen Kontroverse ("Battle of Books") um wissenschaftliche Entdeckungen bzw. die wissenschaftliche Revolution als solche.

Abraham de Graaf (1635-ca. 1717) was one of the most prominent Dutch mathematicians. He had his own school in Amsterdam where he taught mathematics and navigation to ship pilots and navigating officers, and has many publications in these fields and those of astronomy and accountancy to his name. Christiaan Huygens corresponded with him. In the present book, De Graaf gives a general introduction to theoretical and applied mathematics (astronomy, surveying, navigation, fortification, gnomonics, optics, mechanics). With owners' inscriptions. Although the margins are generous, the folding of the plates led to three being very slightly shaved. Otherwise in very good condition.
