         [Drop-title of letterpress text:] Korte beschryvinghe, ende aenwysinghe der plaetsen in desen boeck, naar hunnen tegenwoordighen standt, pertinentelyck uyt-ghebeeldt, in Oostenryck.[Antwerp], Jacob Peeters, [ca. 1685]. Small oblong folio (17.5 x 29 cm). Collection of 108 engraved prints published by Jacob Peeters, starting with 9 engraved scenes of the siege of Vienna after Romeyn de Hooghe (numbered 1-10, but lacking plate 1), and followed by 99 engraved city views after drawings by Jacob Peeters, engraved by Lucas Vorsterman and Gaspar Bouttats. The city views are preceded by a 12 page letterpress text giving descriptions of the towns. Contemporary red paper-covered boards.

      Atabey 933 (Dutch edition, 63 plates); Landwehr, De Hooghe Book Illustrator 82 (French ed. with unclear amount of plates); Weber 816 (Dutch edition, 125 plates); for related series: cf. Atabey 934; Blackmer 1276-1277; Hollstein XVIII, p. 28, 1, III, p. 175, 23 & XLII, pp. 123-133, 60-78; Le Blanc, p. 156; Nagler XI, pp. 165-166; Weber 821. Interesting collection of engraved prints centred around the Great Turkish War (1667-1683), a series of conflicts between the Ottoman Empire and Europe. The collection can be divided into 2 general parts: the first with engraved scenes of the siege of Vienna after Romeyn de Hooghe, and the second with nearly a hundred views of the involved cities. This second part contains 5 separate series, with views of Lower Hungary, Crete and the Maltese Archipelago, the Dardanelles and the Aegean archipelago, the Strait of Gibraltar and North Africa, and the Arabian Peninsula. The series of 14 views of Arabia, includes Mecca, Jerusalem (2), Bethlehem, Kidron Valley, Mount Sinai, Antiochia, the Valley of Terebinthu, Hurcasdin near Aleppo, the springs of Marah, Ramma Valley, a valley near Jerusalem with the Mar Elias Monastery, and a view of Suez with the mountains of Arabia in the background.The collection was published by Jacob Peeters (1637-1695), and most of the engravings are made after drawings by his brother Johannes, or Jan, Peeters (1625-1677), best known for his drawings of city views engraved by Merian. Johannes Peeters was a pupil of their eldest brother Bonaventura Peeters, a well-known painter and draughtsman, and specialized in maritime scenes as well-shown in the present views, often depicting harbours with several ships.The number of plates vary from copy to copy, but the present collection seems to lack at least 1 plate: the first of the scenes of the siege of Vienna. Some occasional foxing and minor stains. Binding rubbed and spine worn and cracked. Good copy.

A description (with libretto interspersed) of one of the most magnificent of Hapsburg court entertainments, a balletto à cavallo performed on 24 and 31 January 1667 in the inner court square (Innerer Burghof) in Vienna, to celebrate the marriage of the Emperor Leopold i (1640-1705) to the Spanish Infanta Margarita Teresa (1651-1673). The specta­cle, involving around a thousand luxuriously dressed actors and two hundred musicians, was created and produced by the Florentine impresario Alessandro Carducci, aided by Carlo Pasetti of Ferrara, who designed theatrical machinery and scenes. 'For centuries... [it] has been considered the greatest horse ballet in history'. 1 The 'Contest between Air and Water' elaborates the conceit that the elements of air and water are in dispute over which of them has brought forth the beautiful Margarita; air calls on fire for help, and water on earth, and a mock combat with pistols and swords ensues. The tournament commences with a parade of decorated floats circling the Burghof, each bearing singers and surrounded by musicians and soldiers on foot and horseback. First to enter is the ship of the Argonauts bearing Fama, who recounts the quarrel between the ele­ments; then air, fire, water, and earth in that order. The machines retire and combat between the two sides begins. Sud­denly, a voice sings out, the fighting ceases, and painted clouds part to reveal Eternity in her Temple, who explains that Margarita belongs to neither ele­ment, but to Leopold. The temple opens and out comes the Emperor himself leading a pro­cession of the spirits of his ancestors, musicians, courtiers, soldiers, and the 'Chariot of Glory'. Glory calls on the Emperor, twelve spirits, and thirty-six riders to perform an equestrian ballet, and after it concludes, all the participants leave the courtyard. 2 [img-2582-left-large_default] The ship of the Argonauts bearing Fama, the first of the festival machines to enter the Burghof (folding plate 580 ×445 mm, by Franciscus van den Steen after a drawing by Nicolas iv de Hoey) [img-2583-left-large_default] 'Retirata di S.M.C. Seguita da Capi Squadri Cavalieri, et accompagnatore della Festa, nel Tempio delle Eternità' (folding plate 290 × 430 mm, by Jan Ossenbeeck after de Hoey) The first of the illustrations 'Comparsa dei Cavalieri' (440 × 690 mm, platemark) depicts the Burghof ringed with seats and the carousel of the 'Nava degli Argonauti' and four floats signifying the elements: 'Gruppo di Nubi, con Giunone, et Iride in l'Arco Baleno' (air, represented by Iris on her rainbow), 'Grotta di Vulcano per la Squadriglia del Fuoco' (fire, represented by Vulcan's mountain), 'Seno di Mare, con Nettuno per la Squadriglia dell acqua' (water, represented by Neptune's fountain), and 'Giardino di Berecintia per la Squadriglia della Terra' (earth, represented by Berecinthia surrounded by gambolling fauns). The next five plates are details, the first showing the ship of the Argonauts, designed to accommodate sixty actors and the largest of Pasetti's machines (580 × 445 mm), then the float of each element (circa 280 × 440 mm). Another large plate, 'Comparsa di sua Maesta Ces.a dal Tempio dell'Eternità' (440 × 700 mm), depicts the entry of the Emperor into the arena, and is followed by one of the 'Carro della Gloria' with the heroic virtues on board (285 × 440 mm). The mock combat, conducted on foot and horseback and abruptly termi­nated by the descent of the Emperor from the temple of Eternity, is recorded on a series of eight plates entitled 'Parte delle figure dei Caroselli' (each print circa 140 × 200 mm). A series of thirteen prints, entitled 'Parte delle Figure del Balletto' (circa 275 × 180 mm), records the choreography of the equestrian ballet, organised in twelve figures with an exit procession, and per­formed according to a dance suite composed by Johann Heinrich Schmelzer (see below). These illustrations show both the patterns executed on the ground by groups of eight, six, or four riders (the Emperor always in the centre), and the steps and leaps performed in the air: the croupade (a dressage figure), and the capriole (a leap in which the horse kicks out its hind legs). The final illustration records the 'Retirata... nel Tempio delle Eternità' (290 × 430 mm). 3 The court librettist Francesco Sbarra was assisted by Antonio Bertali (1605-1669), who composed the chorus and vocal soli (his music is lost), and by Johann Heinrich Schmelzer, who provided instrumental music (see below). Two settings of the text are recorded by the Vd17 project (Verzeichnis der im deutschen Sprachraum erschienenen Drucke des 17. Jahrhunderts). 4 An edition with Italian text (La Contesa Dell'Aria, e Dell'Acqua) was published simultane­ously with the same plates. 5 An edition in quarto format with cop­ies of the illustrations by Andreas Frölich was published as part of the compilation 'Allerhöchst-Feyerlichste Festivitäten' in the Diarium euro­paeum, xv, Appendix oder Anhang (Frankfurt am Main circa 1667). references Anton Mayer, Wiens Buchdrucker-Geschichte 1482-1882 (Vienna 1883), i, p.253, no. 1451; Katalog der Ornamentstichsammlung der Staatlichen Kunstbibliothek Berlin (1939), no. 2850 and Staatliche Museen Berlin, Katalog der Lipperheideschen Kostümbibliothek, edited by Eva Nienholdt & Gretel Wagner-Neumann (Berlin 1965), Sc8 (lacking a plate); Das Barocke Fest, exhibi­tion cata­logue by Eckehart Nölle, Neuen Residenz (Bamberg 1968), no. 41; Libretti.

The composer of the instrumental music for the balletto à cavallo performed in 1667 for the wedding of the Emperor Leopold and the Infanta Margarita Teresa was Johann Heinrich Schmelzer, the leading Austrian composer of instrumental music of his genera­tion. The music consists of five movements: 'Corrente per l'Intrada di S.M.C. & di tutti i Cavaglieri', 'Giga per Entrata de i Saltatori [specially-trained horsemen, executing the caprioles], e per molte altre figure', 'Follia per nuovo ingresso de i Saltatori, & altre opera­zioni de Cavalli', 'Allemanda per gl'intrecci e figure di passegio grave introdotto da S.M.C. e Cavaglieri', and 'Sarabande per termine del Balletto'. 'Nach Sbarras Beschreibung wurde die das eigentli­che Ballett einleitende Sinfonia von über 100 Saiteninstrumenten, dazu Flöten, Trompeten und anderen Blasinstrumenten ge­spielt. Die als Intrada fungierende Corrente, die Follia als mittleren der fünf Tänze und die Sarabanda am Ende, alle sechsstimmig, führten 24 Trompeten und zwei Paar Pauken aus, die Giga vier Clarini, die zweistimmig mit dem doppelchörigen Streichorchester konzer­tierten, und die Allemanda nur die Streicher'. 6 This edition was appended to both the Italian and German editions of Sbarra's libretto (see above), but apparently not all copies.

         Antignome fisico-matematiche con il nuovo orbe e sistema terrestre .

      Livorno, G.V. Bonfigli, 1667 - 4to (220 x 160 mm), pp xii 179 [1, errata]; title in red and black with woodcut Medici arms, and numerous woodcut diagrams in text; a very good copy, uncut in original carta rustica.First edition, important in the history of post-Galilean atomist physics. Rossetti was a pupil of Borelli and Redi and a convinced Galilean atomist. He developed a philosophical physics compounded of Lucretian atomism, the metaphysics of Gassendi, and the atomism of Galileo's Il Saggiatore. 'In 1667, Rossetti published a pamphlet entitled Antignome fisico-matematica, which openly professed the atomism of The Assayer and, indeed, even without obviously quoting it explicitly, violated the self-censorship agreement which had been maintained until that moment regarding the book, quoting from it in a direct, transparent mention of the famous Democritan passage on mathematical characters in the book of nature. "Among our letters," Rossetti wrote, "some go with the other perfectly, such as the vowels . and such must be the case with Atoms, because if every one conformed with every other in the same way, new species would every day be seen in the World and those already seen would vanish." As if that were not enough, Rossetti polemicized against Father Fabri in defense of the corpuscular emanation of light, "effluvium of corpuscles," and then, a year later, in a polemic with a Bolognese Aristotelian, he referred to the atomism in Galileo's Discourse on Floating Bodies'' (Redondi, Galileo: Heretic p 309).When Rossetti's protector Cardinal Leopoldo de' Medici died in 1675, 'matters endled badlyu; and what he had perhaps wished to be a rehabilitation of Galileo and a celebration of The Assayer's fiftieth anniversary was transformed into a bitter defeat' (op cit).Carli and Favaro 307; Riccardi I.2 594 n 1; OCLC records Michigan only for North America

         China monumentis, qua sacris qua profanis, nec non variis naturae & artis spectaculis, aliarumque rerum memorabilium argumentis illustrata .

      Antwerp Meurs 1667 - First edition, folio (32.5 x 21 cm), additional engraved title (with Amsterdam imprint), portrait of the author, 2 folding maps, 22 plates and illustrations within the text, 2pp. ad at end, occasional staining or spotting, contemporary vellum, stained, occasional light toning, generally a very good fresh copy. 'One of the most influential books in shaping the European conception of China in its day' (Löwendahl). "Gathering his work from other members of the Society [of Jesuits], Kircher wrote one of the century's most influential treatises on China. His primary purpose was to establish the authenticity of the Nestorian monument discovered in Sian, and to that end he produced in print the original Chinese and Syriac inscriptions on the monument, the Chinese text in romanization, and finally a Latin translation and his explication of the Chinese and Syriac texts. In addition, Kircher included a sizeable description of China and other places in Asia. For example, in a section devoted to Christianity in China, he sketched all the old overland routes, including that of Grueber and d'Orville from Agra to Peking, as well as giving a description of Tibet. Following what he thought to be the spread of idolatry from the Near East to Persia, India, and finally to East Asia, Kircher described the religions of China, Japan, and India. There are several chapters on government, customs, geography, fauna, flora, and mechanical arts of China, and a very interesting scholarly discussion of the Chinese language. There is a long Chinese-Latin dictionary. Kircher's volume contains several beautiful pictures taken from Chinese and Mughal originals, which Grueber had brought back to Europe with him in 1664. Although the book was not the product of Kircher's own experience in China, it was frequently used or cited as a source of information by later writers. Some of the information contained in it, for example the text of the Nestorian monument, Roth's description of Hindu religion, and Grueber's description of Tibet, had not appeared in print before."

Very rare first edition, posthumously published, a work on the improvement of public health of Rome and Latium, dedicated to Cardinal Barberini and the current Pope, written in 1631 by the polymath Doni (1594-1647), who was well acquainted with scientists, such as Mersenne, and was part of Cardinal Barberini's entourage, and a member of the Accademia della Crusca. Apart from his musicological writings, and his fame for having changed the name of the note Ut [C] to Do, most of his works were published posthumously by his followers and friends. In this book, part of the early modern project of restituting the glorious days of ancient Rome, Doni, referring to modern thinkers, such as Ficino, Scaliger and Cardano, examines why the area of Rome is unhealthy to live in, as opposed to the more salubrious living conditons of ancient Rome. He deals with the contribution of good architecture to impoving public health, air quality and circulation, malaria and swamplands, mineral waters, recent outbreaks of the Plague in Italy, all within the context of the urbanistic improvements undertaken by Pope Urban VIII, Maffeo Barberini (one of the two Barberini dedicatees of this work), who up to 1633 was a patron and supporter of Galileo. His nephew Francesco Barberini, the Cardinal Barberini is the other dedicatee. The family of the bookplate, the Sacchettis, are one of the oldest noble families of Rome, with close links to the Barberini. Cardinal Giulio Cesare Sacchetti (1586-1663) held among many posts that of a member of a special council set up to fight the Plague in the Papal States. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Very rare first and only Dutch edition of William Davis Robinson's Memoirs of the Mexican revolution (1820), describing the struggle for an independent Mexico, together with an account of Xavier Mina's expedition, and a historical introduction by the translator. General Xavier Mina (1789-1817) played an important role in the Mexican War of Independence. Born in Spain and an ardent supporter of liberal ideas, he was forced to leave the country and subsequently travelled to France and England. Destined to help the Mexicans cast off the yoke of Spanish rule, he embarked for the United States in 1815 where he readied several ships and headed for Mexico, arriving at Soto la Marina in 1817. Mina fought with great valour and made some successful attacks, but eventually he was defeated, taken prisoner and subsequently executed. After 11 years of war, Mexico gained its independence in 1821. Owner's entry on front pastedown. Good copy, with some light waters tains. Spine worn.

         Shilhavtiyah [Hebrew] or, the burning of London in the year 1666. Commemorated and improved in a CX discourses, meditations, and contemplations. Divided into four parts, treating of: I. The sins, or spiritual causes procuring that judgment. II. The natural causes of fire, morally applied. III. The most remarkable passages and circumstances of that dreadful fire. IV. Counsels and comfort unto such as are sufferers by the said judgment.

      London printed by R.I. for Thomas Parkhurst at the Golden Bible on London-bridge 1667 - 8vo., with a large folding engraved frontispiece of the fire, (26) + 128 + (4) + 220 + (4) + 144pp., possibly wanting a half-title, skilfully rebound in old-style half calf over marbled boards, flat spine with gilt lines and label. A good copy. First edition: variant issue. Uncommon. Wing R.1876. The folding plate is a dramatic picture of the Fire (London's fier began September the second, 1666>). It depicts a view of London in flames as seen from the south bank of the Thames. There is a maze of houses in the foreground, London bridge crossing a river teeming with small boats (two on fire) and the burning city of London behind with St. Paul's cathedral in its midst. Samuel Rolle (or Rolls), (ca. 1628-1679/80), was a Church of England clergyman, born in London but having enjoyed various preferments outside the city itself. In 1665 it was reported that Rolls 'liveth in or near Kingston upon Thames and practiseth phisick'. Rolls was elected chaplain at Bridewell on 20 October 1669, was ordained in 1677 but never got on with the Bishop of London. From 1664 until his death Rolle was a hospitaller at St. Thomas's Hospital in Southwark. Rolle was far from being alone in using the fire as an excuse for preaching that it was nothing less than God's condemnation of a sinful London. The book is, however, not simply a rant against social decay. It also contains vivid eye witness material on the plight of homeless Londoners forced to camp in tents in Moorfields, and on those, such as carters and landlords, who profited from the catastrophe. The author also describes the dangerous state of ruined buildings, whose tottering walls threatened to collapse on to passers-by. Rolle's book also reveals some interesting observations about the fire, how people felt about it and its effect on Londoners: how some nearly died of fright, the losses that were suffered, how some got lost among the ruins and could not recognise even their own street. He voices his disgust at opportunists profiting from the fire, landlords in the areas not affected who raised their rents, carters who charged extortionate fees to carry away people's belongings, and thieves who looted people's possessions.

General Xavier Mina (1789-1817) played an important role in the Mexican War of Independence. Born in Spain and an ardent supporter of liberal ideas, he was forced to leave the country and subsequently travelled to France and England. Destined to help the Mexicans cast off the yoke of Spanish rule, he embarked for the United States in 1815 where he readied several ships and headed for Mexico, arriving at Soto la Marina in 1817. Mina fought with great valour and made some successful attacks, but eventually he was defeated, taken prisoner and subsequently executed. After 11 years of war, Mexico gained its independence in 1821. Owner's entry on front pastedown. Good copy, with some light waters tains. Spine worn.

Nunc primum editus, in Latinum sermonem conversus, notis perpetuis illustratus a Samuele Tennulio, accedit Joachimi Camerarii Explicatio in duos libros Nicomachi, cum indice rerum & verborum locupletissimo.

      Arnhem (Arnhemiae), Prostant apud Joh. Fridericum Hagium; Deventer (Daventriae), typis descripsit Wilhelmus Wier, 1667 - 1668. 4to. 3 parts in 1: (IV, frontispiece & title),(IX),181,(3 blank),239,(1) p., mathematical woodcut illustrations. Vellum 20 cm (Ref: STCN p.p. 053564642; Hoffmann 2,388; Ebert 10715; Brunet 3,494; Graesse 3,446/447) (Details: Greek text with Latin translation. Engraved frontispiece designed by J. van Steegeren, depicting a company of 6 Greek mathematicians, Aristoxenus, Ptolemaeus, Euclides, Nicomachus, Iamblichus and in their midst Pythagoras. Title printed in red and black. Occasional mathematical woodcut illustrations. Each of the 3 parts has a different title; the 2nd and 3rd part show the imprint: 'Daventriae, typis Wilhelmi Wier, 1667') (Condition: Vellum soiled. Endpapers inscribed; 2 bookplates on the front pastedown. Paper partly severely browned) (Note: This is the 'editio princeps' of a commentary, or paraphrase which the Greek neoplatonic philosopher Iamblichus, ca. 240 - 325 AD, wrote of Nicomachus of Gerasa's (surviving) 'Arithmêtikê eisagôgê', or 'Institutio Arithmetica'. Nichomachus was a neoplatonic philosopher who probably lived ca. 100 AD. The 'institutio' which Nicomachus wrote, is an introduction to the arithmetic knowledge necessary for the understanding of the work of Plato and treatises of the Neopythagoreans. It consists more or less of a compilation of the general number theory of the Pythagoreans. Nichomachus discusses the one/many, even/uneven, several kinds of natural numbers and prime numbers. The Latin translation which Boethius produced in late antiquity of Nicomachus' 'Institutio' has profoundly influenced medieval mathematics. In the 9th century it was translated into Syrian and Arabic. The commentary/paraphrase 'On the introduction of the Arithmetic' of Nicomachus Gerasenus which Iamblichus wrote 2 centuries later, was originally a part of a greater work on Pythagorism, consisting of 10 books, of which the greater part was lost. Neoplatonists and Pythagoreans valued mathematics highly. It was possible, they thought, to acquire knowledge of the universe and ultimately one self through mathematics. So, the most appropriate knowlegde to human nature was mathematics.It was understood as the study of the structure of reality. § According to Hoffmann the 'De Fato' is the 7th and 8th chapter of Sectio VIII of Iamblichus work 'De Mysteriis Aegyptiorum'. The complete 'De Mysteriis' (On the Mysteries) was first published in Oxford in 1678 by Thomas Gale. So this fragment of 'De Fato' is in fact the 'editio princeps' of a small part (2 chapters) of the 'De Mysteriis'. Iamblichus argued in his 'On the Mysteries' that the gods help man on his way, and that they respond to prayer and offer supernatural guidance. § This 'editio princeps' was produced by the Dutch scholar Samuel Tennulius, or Samuel Ten Nuyl, who was from 1667 professor of History and Eloquence of the Academy at Nijmegen. He fled for the French, who were plundering the Eastern part of the Netherlands in 1672, and ended up in Arnhem, an unlikely place for the printing of a the work of a classical author, let alone an 'editio princeps'. He was born in Deventer and was since 1643 the father-in-law of J.F. Gronovius, who in the beginning of his career taught on the Athenaeum at Deventer before his professorship at Leyden. Tennulius is said to have been an excellent linguist and mathematician. Besides this Iamblichus edition he published a fragment of 'De Urbibus' of Stephanus Byzantinus (Amst., 1669), 'Agathemeris Compendiariae Expositionis Geographiae libri II' (Amst., 1671), and an edition of Frontinus (Leiden/Amst., 1675). (Van der Aa 18, p. 63/64 & 'Inventarisatie Egodocumenten tot 1814 deel 1' on the site of 'Onderzoeksinstituut Egodocument en Geschiedenis') Tennulius stayed in Paris from 1659-1660 (why, we donot know), where he closely befriended the famous French classical scholar Henri de Valois, or Henricus Valesius, 1603-1676. In the preface Tennulius tells us of his daily visits to the Frenchman, how deeply he grew attached to him, (ut mittam reliqua amoris vestigia (eius)' p. II), and that he learned a lot of him (ab ore viri pependerim; & vidisse erat erudiri. (p.I)). Valesius not only instructed him, but introduced him also to other Parisian men of letters. Valesius obviously had a high opion of the capacities of his Dutch friend, for he even assigned him to lend a manuscript of Iamblichus from the 'Bibliotheca Memmiana', to make a transcript and to publish it. Tennulius did more than produce an edition of this difficult text of Iamblichus on Nicomachus' 'introductio', he also provided a Latin translation, and extensive commentary. The book consists of 3 parts, the first is the Greek text with a facing Latin translation, at the end of which Tennulius filled 5 pages with a short fragment concerning a treatise of Iamblichus called 'De Fato, which he had found in the Royal Library at Paris. The second part (56 pages) contains the commentary on Nicomachus' 'introductio', which was published by the German genius Joachim Camerarius in Augsburg in 1554. His commentary was the best that was written during the Renaissance. So it seems a wise decision of Tennelius to incorporate this in his edition) (Provenance: The front flyleaves and endpapers in the rear have been inscribed in Italian. On the front endpapers, which has a pair of flyleaves, we find the name of this inscriber: 'ex Bibliotheca Joh. Bapt Riarii Bononiensis Patricii'. This book once belonged to a member of the Bolognese branch of the Italian noble dynasty Riario. It had members who were dukes, cardinals and marquises. We donot know which Giovanni Battista Riario inscribed the endpapers. The handwriting, legible, but often difficult, seems contemporary. The inscription seems the concept of a treatise, or is a summary, entitled: 'Della Pittura perfetta Ideale, o bello sublime'. On the flyleaf at the end is what seems to be the layout of a title page for a publication of Riario, entitled: 'Prodromi alla perfetta cognitione dalla strutura'. Riario is designated there as 'G.B. Riario Lombardo Patricio Bolognese. § 2 bookplates have been pasted on the front pastedown. In the centre of the first one an engraved bookplate: 'Ex bibliotheca Michaelis Chasles, Acad. Scientiar. Socii'. Michel Chasles, 1793-1880, was a French philosopher and mathematician, appointed in 1841 professor of the 'École Polytechnique'. (See Wikipedia s.v. Michel Chasles, with his portrait); at the verso of the second front flyleaf: 'Venant de la vente Chasles du mardi 19 Juillet 1881, 3 fr. 20'; then the signature of 'P. Laffitte'. The buyer is the French philosopher Pierre Laffite, 1823-1903. His pupil Émile Littré tells that he gave 'des cours hebdomadaires d'histoire, de morale, de mathématique' in his own appartment. He was a brilliant teacher, who entertained his students even in café Voltaire. He has a statue somewhere in France, and rests at Père-Lachaise. § The other bookplate belongs to the Dutch physican and famous bookcollector Bob Luza, who died in 1980, and whose library was auctioned in 1981 by Van Gendt) (Collation: pi2, 3*4, chi1, A-Z4, a-z4, 2a4 (leaf 2a4 blank and not numbered), 2b-2g4, (2h1) (2h1 not numbered)) (Photographs on request)
