         Pratique de la Geometrie sur le Papier et sur le Terrain. Avec un nouvel Ordre & une Methode particuliere

      - Engraved frontis., an engraved head-piece at beginning of the dedication, & 82 full-page engravings in the text. 4 p.l. (incl. frontis.), 41, 139, [8] pp. 12mo, 18th-cent. green morocco, sides panelled in gilt, flat spine gilt, a.e.g. Paris: T. Jolly, 1669 (colophon dated 1668). First edition, and a lovely copy, of this uncommon and influential book, a popular manual for artists and architects. This is "one of the most attractive little mathematical works ever published."-Hofer, Baroque Book Illustration, pp. 14 & 32. The illustrations in this book show beautiful small landscapes in the lower portion of the image, while the upper portion shows geometrical diagrams; many are animated by figures (peasants, soldiers, noblemen in contemporary costume). Leclerc's style of illustration strongly influenced the 18th-century French vignettists, prefiguring the grace and elegance of the best French rococo. Le Clerc (1637-1714), a native of Lorraine, adapted the technique of his countryman Jacques Callot. Professor of geometry and perspective at the Royal Academy of Arts and Sciences, Le Clerc also worked for Louis XIV as "graveur du Roi." Fine copy. ? Brunet, III, 915-"elle est recherchée à cause des figures qui y sont de premier tirage.". [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Sthlm, I. Meurer, 1669. 8:o. Extra grav. titelblad,(27,1 blank),112,(2) s. & 1 stor utvikbar grav. plansch. Hårt nött samtida marmorerat mörkbrunt skinnbd med upphöjda bind och sparsam ornering. Helt guldsnitt. Ryggen defekt upp- och nedtill. Gamla bläckanteckningar på insidan av främre pärmen. Ett eftersättsblad delvis bortklippt. Det grav. titelbladet nästan helt loss. Sprucken i häftningen i början och mellan s. 32 och 33 respektive 64 och 65. En reva i yttermarginalen på s. 97. Sporadiska fuktränder i hörn och marginaler. Planschen med lagade revor. Planschen och s. 111-12 är hämtade från ett annat ex. Med en gammal tillskrift på pärmens insida: "Den som denna boken nappar: han faller ned för helvetets trappar". Med Ulriks Holms namnteckningar, Germund Lars Cederhielms signatur och ur det Cederhielmska biblioteket på Säby. Collijn Sveriges bibliografi 1600-talet 201. Boken har en tryckt dedikation till Karl XI och den unga kungens porträtt pryder det extra graverade titelbladet, vilket är utfört av Hans Strauss. Författaren (1625-72) slutade sin karriär som överstelöjtnant vid Skånska regementet till fot. Hans arbete är en viktig källa till det karolinska infanteriets praktik. Det Cederhielmska biblioteket började byggas upp i slutet av 1600-talet av presidenten i Göta hovrätt, Germund Cederhielm. Det ärvdes och utökades ytterligare av sonen Eric Germund men framförallt av dennes son Germund Carl. Den sista ägaren i familjen Cederhielm, Germund Ludvig, lät i början av 1800-talet flytta hela boksamlingen till Säby utanför Linköping. Den omfångsrika manuskriptsamlingen donerades med tiden till Uppsala universitetsbibliotek medan boksamlingen 1841 gick i arv till Cederhielms hushållerska. Hennes efterlevande lät sälja böckerna på auktion i Stockholm 1878, 1880 och 1882. Biblioteket var då starkt decimerat p.g.a. en omfattande misskötsel under de föregående trettio åren, men dessa bokauktioner var trots detta bland 1800-talets viktigaste och mest intressanta. I boksamlingen ingick böcker ur Magnus Gabriel De la Gardies bibliotek och även ett stort antal krigsbyten ur polska bibliotek, framförallt med Karl Ferdinands pärmexlibris eller namn. Många av dessa böcker hade förvärvats vid försäljningen av det Oxenstiernska biblioteket 1732.

         Dissertationes Epistolicae duae, una de Formatione Pulli in Ovo. Altera de Bombyce

      London: Martyn, 1673 & 1669. Second Edition.. full contemporary calf.. Very good; rebacked.. 4to. There are 16 engraved plates. The first edition sheets of both works bound up with a new general title. The first work (G-M #469) is a milestone in the history of modern embryology and was unsurpassed until Wolf's rare treatise at the end of the 18th century. Malpighi's book on embryology was an original work that presented many new and correct ideas. The second work on the silkworm (G-M #293) is the first book dealing with an invertebrate. He developed new dissecting techniques and was responsible for the identification of all the animal's internal structure. In the copy offered here the Epistola to Malpighi from Oldenburg is bound after the title for De Formatione though it belongs with the second treatise. This copy retains the license leaf. Frati p.27; see Adelmann for a lengthy account; G-M # 293 & # 469; Wing M-351; see Norman #1428 & 1429.

         ARBORETUM MATHEMATICUM. [and] ASTROLOGIA SANA, LICITA & NATURALIS

      Dresden: Melchior Bergen, 1669. FIRST EDITION. This is a compendium of astrological information by the court mathematician of the Elector of Saxony, offered here in an appealing, elaborately decorated armorial binding. In this volume, astronomer, astrologer, mathematician, and art historian Tobias Beutel (1627-90) discusses astronomical instruments, solar and lunar eclipses, and the influence of the stars and planets on the natural world and human events. As Robert Collis notes in his history of Western esotericism, Beutel "combined geometrical studies on the position of the planets and the moon with astrological remarks on the horoscopes of reigning monarchs" to produce a "unified perspective connecting the microcosm of 17th century European politics with the cosmic movements in an erudite 'summa' of German Renaissance astronomical and chronological science." He also calculates the latitude and longitude of 500 cities. The woodcuts show the zodiac charts for rulers of the Holy Roman Empire, various German duchies and electorates, and Scandinavian countries; the stages of lunar and solar eclipses; methods for determining the position of the sun, moon, and stars at various times of day; and other tools to assist in casting natal charts. The elaborately decorated binding no doubt previously graced the library of a 17th century German noble, and it is certainly possible that it was made for a presentation copy.. 192 x 150 mm.

The Elzeviers specialized in learned books that were noted for excellence of typography and design.
