      Gasparem Crivellarium, [Padoue] 1616 - Broché (couverture du dix-neuvième siècle) Petit in quarto (193x147 mm) de (16)-143-(25) pages . Déchirure aux deux premiers feuillets avec perte de quelques lettres, un rongeur a grignoté l’angle d’une dizaine de feuillets sans manque de texte mais cela a entrainé une mouillure à l'angle inférieure de tout l'ouvrage Édition originale très rare de ce fameux traité sur les monstres de la nature. Rassemble tout ce qui a été imaginé ou observé des monstruosités auxquelles la nature humaine est sujette. "Une des premières classifications des déformations, le travail de Liceti était encore étudié dans les travaux sur les malformations du 19ème siècle." (Garrison-Morton). Fortunio Liceti né à Rapallo en 1577, était un homme d'érudition prodigieuse. Il a publié de nombreux ouvrages sur la médecine, l'histoire naturelle, la philosophie et la physique. Son livre sur la nature des monstres ici dans l'édition originale, est le premier traité sur les anomalies génétiques et les malformations embryonnaires.

Small 4to (193x147 mm), (16)-143-(25) pages . Tears touching the two first leaves, with loss of a few letters. A rodent nibbled the corner of a dozen sheets without loss of text but it has led to a waterstain on the lower angle of the whole textblock. The very rare first edition of this famous treatise on monsters. "One of the earliest classifications of deformities, Liceti's work was still under review in works on malformation in the 19th century. Includes both real and imaginary cases." (Garrison-Morton). Fortunio Liceti born in Rapallo in 1577, was a man of prodigious scholarship. He published numerous books on medicine, natural history, philosophy and physics. His book on the nature of the monsters here in the original edition, is the first treatise on genetic abnormalities and embryonic malformations.

It is partially framed with portraits of the Electors of the Holy Roman Empire; the Emperor Matthias is at the top center, and Friedrich, the Elector Palatine who would become Matthias enemy, next to him. Like the multiple dedications of the Thesaurus graecae linguae, this title-page suggests the irenic potential of lexicography, offering a dictionary for all German-speakers just before the war that would set one German-speaking community so bitterly against another..."

Das vorliegende, sehr seltene, theologisch-philosophische Kompendium entstand bereits 1576; wurde aber 1616 erstmals gedruckt. - Der mystisch-theosophische Schriftsteller Weigel (1533-1588), Pfarrer zu Zschopau, war ein Vertreter des Pantheismus und stand besonders Sebastian Franck und Jakob Böhme nahe. Er wird von Frick als einer der "Ahnherren" und Begründer der Geheimgesellschaften des 18. Jahrhunderts bezeichnet. Seine Schriften zirkulierten wegen der Gefahr, als Ketzer verurteilt zu werden, zuerst nur handschriftlich und wurden erst weit nach seinem Tode gedruckt.

Una tavola xilografica ripiegata f.t. raffigurante un'ideale progressione ascendente della vita oltremondana secondo le concezioni pagane, dai supplizi dell'Ade al Pantheon delle divinità greco-romane. Due xilografie a piena pagina, una al verso dell'ultima carta di dedicatoria con rappresentazione mitico-allegorica entro cornice riccamente istoriata con putti, grottesche, festoni, etc., e una, al verso della seconda carta di indice dei miti, con rappresentazione di Artemide (Diana) entro cornice identica a quella della precedente xilografia. Oltre 100 xilografie intercalate n.t. a mezza pagina, raffiguranti i principali miti della tradizione greco-romana.

Medizin. - Das angebundene Werk, ebenfalls ein von Johann Jacob Wecker (1528-1586) übersetztes "Kunstbuch", widmet sich v.a. dem Destillieren u. gibt v.a. Anleitungen für versch. "Wasser" gegen Krankheiten sowie Hinweise zur Herstellung versch. Weine. Wecker ist v.a. bekannt für sein Apothekenbuch "Antidotarium generale" (Basel 1553). - Alle drei Teile mit Register. - Einband fleckig u. am oberen Kapital beidseitig angerissen; Besitzerstempel; rote Titelfarbe wie immer sehr blass gedruckt; Titel mit Bibliotheksstempel u. wie auch das letzte Blatt mit handschrftl.

        THE WORKES OF BENJAMIN JONSON

      London: William Stansby, 1616. First Folio Edition. Lacks title page; pagination begins at page 3 with the first page of Every Man in His Humour, continuing to page 1012; lacks the two final leaves that contain three pages of the text of the final Masque, The Golden Age Restored. Page 3 has a long longitudinal tear that removes 1/4" of the page (not affecting the text), and a small hole (which does remove a portion of the text on the verso). One long closed tear to page 885/886. In a late-18th century calf binding, with five raised bands, gilt spine decoration and leather spine label. Recased later, with modern endpapers. Boards rubbed; hinges starting, with a short crack to bottom of front hinge at spine; minor soiling throughout. Extremely scarce. There are watermarks on a significant number of the pages. The watermarks are as follows: a two handled vase with orbs above making a cross shape (pp. 499); a two handled vase with orbs above making a triangle (pp. 215); a one handed vase with looping orbs (pp. 891). The page numbers listed above are example pages, not the only pages. While not every individual page was tested, they are grouped in batches, so we believe this to be all of them. The first Jonson folio of 1616, printed and published by William Stansby and sold through bookseller Richard Meighen, contained nine plays, all previously published, plus two works of non-dramatic poetry, thirteen masques, and six "entertainments." The folio collections of Ben Jonson's works published in the seventeenth century were crucial developments in the publication of English literature and English Renaissance drama. This collection served as a precedent for other play collections that followed - most notably the First Folio of Shakespeare's plays in 1623, but also the first Beaumont and Fletcher folio of 1647, and other collections.-Consignment.

      Freiberg, Melchior Hoffmann, [1616]. - (48) SS. Mit Titelbordüre in Holzschnitt; Text durchgehend von doppelter Rahmenlinie eingefaßt. Marmorheftstreifen. 4to. Leichpredigt auf die Familie des Freiberger Gewürzkrämers Andreas Köhler, der mit seiner Frau, seinem elfjährigen Sohn und seiner neunjährigen Tochter im eigenen Hause ermordet wurde. Obwohl der Täter, Simon Kästner aus Reichsstadt, den Raubmord durch Brandstiftung zu verschleiern suchte, wurde er gefaßt und mit Zangen gerissen und gerädert. Die Predigt schildert nicht nur die Tat, sondern enthält auch eine Ermahnung, die öffentliche Hinrichtung von Misstätern nicht als Lustspiel oder Spektakel zu betrachten, da doch Leute, die "einen gefallen an ihrem grawsamen Jammer und Elende haben, [.] erger denn der Hencker selbst seyn". - So komplett ohne den offenbar manchen Ausgaben beigegebenen Kupferstich mit dem Bildnis des in Eisen gelegten Mörders (hier im Faksimile beiliegend): das VD 17 führt die illustrierte Variante unter separater Nummer.

        Guerra d'Amore.; Three Plates (of four) commissioned to commemorate the carnival in Florence, dedicated by Cosimo II de' Medici to his wife, Grand Duchess of Tuscany

      [Florence], 1616. From the Collection of Arthur & Charlotte Vershbow. Three etchings (from the set of four), comprising [Chariots and Characters] (L. 169 "Les chars et les personnages"), a very good impression of the rare first state (of three), watermark Fleur-de-Lys in Double Circle with Initial V -- Mostra della guerra d'amore (L. 170, "Le Défilé Entrée des Chars de l'Afrique et de l'Aise"), a very good impression of the rare second state (of three), without watermark -- and Uno de gl'abbattimenti della guerra d'amore (L. 171, "Le Combat des Sections d'Infantrie'), a good impression of the third, final state, without watermark. All with wide margins, some deckle edges preserved, very minor staining, generally in very good condition. Provenance: unidentified collector's mark, Dr R in a square (not in Lugt); purchased from Hellmuth Wallach, 1957. Callot's prints, made after the theatrical spectacles designed by Giulio Parigi, capture the extravagance of the 1616 Florence carnival. The celebrations consisted of a triumphal procession, a mock battle, a ballet on horseback and a tournament in the Piazza Santa Croce, on Shrove Tuesday, 12th February. The premise was the battle between Indamoro, the King of Narsinga (played by Cosimo II) and Gradamento, King of Melinda (played by Lorenzo, Cosimo's brother) for the love of the Queen of India, represented by a gold statue. Callot's etchings, which show the various phases of the combat, were part of the souvenir booklet written by the poet Andrea Salvadori and published by Zandri Pignoni in Florence in 1616. The first print represents chariots and characters in costume for the horse ballet and tournament "War of Love". The second shows the parade in the Amphitheater, and entry of the floats representing Africa and Asia. The third, also in the amphitheater, depicts the battles of the infantries. Lieure 169-171.

        The Surveyor : in Foure Bookes

      London : Printed by W : Stansby for, W : Burre, 1616. Hardcover. Good. Folio, 29 cm. First edition of "the first comprehensive English textbook on Survey" (Singer, History of Technology, III, p. 541). Engraved title page, [10], 157, 152-175, 172-181, 186-228 pp. Contemporary limp vellum. Creasing and soiling to vellum. Rehinged. Marginal soiling and tanning. Lacks portrait of Rathborne and Prince Charles. O3 is a cancel, fifth line of verso has "58 4/5". <br> The diagram on p 160 is believed to have inspired the configuration of the Pilgrim Land Survey of Cape Cod conducted in 1636. William Brewster carried a copy of the Surveyor with him on the Mayflower. <br> For historians of surveying, Rathborne's Surveryor, presents the "first complete picture of a seventeenth century surveyor at work and of his instruments. The frontispiece has a structure supported by two allegorical figures of Arithmetica and Geometria surmounted by celestial and terrestrial globes. The upper vignette depicts an experienced surveyor trampling "fools and dunces underfoot." The Surveyor was one of the first books to strongly advocate the use of mathematics in survey projects. Rathborne presented the basic principles of geometry and discussed their applications in surveying. He advocated use of the recently introduced decimal arithmetic of Simon Stevin (1585) and urged the employ of the "new pocket" tables of logarithms." (Swetz, Mathematical Treasure: Rathborne's Surveyor in Four Books, 2014) Refs: STC 20748; Hind II, p. 267; Johnson 27:15; cf. Taylor, Tudor, pp. 154-5; ESTC S116149; Lowndes IV, 2052. Not in Alden.

The sections on sublimation (the conversion of a solid directly into a gas) and calcination (transformation of a solid compound by heating) were added for the first time in the present third edition, giving the work its final extent. John French (1616-1657) was a surgeon in the British army. With 18th-century(?) manuscript notes. There are no endleaves at the front and those at the back have not been pasted down.

The binding is slightly rubbed, and cracked at the hinges, and the clasps and most of the strap fastenings are gone. A thorough and well-illustrated standard work on distillation.

        Nuevos discursos de la gineta de España

      First edition. Among the rarest works on the Gineta of Spain, the riding style derived from the North Africans, and which became a distinctive characteristic of Iberian horsemanship. Fernandez de Andrada wrote three works regarding horsemanship, the first was "De la Naturaleza del cavallo", the second "Libro de la Gineta de España", and this, his last, and best: "indudablemente la más apreciada de las tres" (Marqués de la Torrecilla). This book is also regarded as important for the history of bullfighting on horse (third part), in which the author, among other things, praises bullfighting with a 'rejón' which had been introduced recently instead of the traditional spear. In this treatise, the author dedicates a chapter on the description of the "cabezon", and it´s importance for taming the colt, without harming or causing any injuries. According to The Biographical of the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge (London 1843) Pedro Fernández de Andrada was 'a native of Seville, famous for his knowledge of breeding, rearing and treating horses, as well as the proper mode of mounting them'. Extremely rare, we could only trace 4 institutional copies, none of them in public libraries in the United States, further, we could trace no copies having sold in the market in recent times.
