      - Jena u. Helmstedt, 1677-92. 4to. Pergament d. Zeit mit neuem Rückentitel (fleckig, Rückdeckel wasserrandig, sporfleckig u. mit ergänzter Fehlstelle). Nach Studien in Jena, Leipzig u. Leiden sowie einer fünfjährigen Peregrinatio academica erwarb Schelhammer 1677 unter Vorsitz des Jenaer Mediziners G. W. Wedel den Doktortitel.

         CE QUE DOIT CONSIDERER UN ESCOLIER, lorsqu'il choisit un maistre de quelque profession que ce soit.

      s.l.n.d. (17e siècle). - MANUSCRIT in-4. 54pp. 2ff. Plein vélin souple du temps. Très beau manuscrit ancien de l'opuscule anonyme composé "par un des plus habiles Ecuyers de ce temps" et qui fut souvent rajouté à partir de 1677 aux éditions du Parfait Maréchal de Solleysel, sous le titre "Abrégé de l'art de monter à cheval". Ce manuscrit, dont le texte diffère sensiblement de la version imprimée, semble accréditer l'idée que l'ouvrage fit l'objet d'une diffusion sous forme manuscrite avant d'être imprimé à la suite du livre de Solleysel. Soigneusement calligraphié, il se divise en 27 chapitres et d'une table des matières (contre 37 chapitres sans table des matières dans la version imprimée). "Quel doit estre un homme de la profession de monter à cheval", "Quelles sont les qualitez requises à un bon home de cheval", "La disposition que doit avoir celuy qui veut embrasser la profession de monter à cheval", "Ce qu'il faut que sçache un escolier touchant le harnois de son cheval", "Ce que c'est que maneige", "Ce que c'est que volte", "Ce que c'est que passade", "Du beau cheval", "Connoissance certaine de l'age du cheval jusques a la fin de sa vie", etc. Bel exemplaire dans son vélin d'origine.

      London: Robert White et al, 1677. Hardcover. Very good. [44], 54 [48], 885 [854], [46] p. 38 cm. Frontisportrait and decorations.

This work was written by Sir Walter Raleigh, famous English explorer, during his imprisonment in the Tower of London from 1603 to 1616. Raleigh, who had established the lost colony of Roanoke in present-day North Carolina and headed several expeditions to South America, was arrested upon the death of Queen Elizabeth I and imprisoned by King James I, with whom he was highly unpopular. Having nothing better to do while imprisoned, he began this History of the World, intended to outline historical events from creation to modern times, drawing on the Bible, Greek mythology, and other sources. Raleigh dedicated his work to the king's son, Prince Henry, who was trying to secure his release from prison. As Prince Henry put it: "Only my father would keep such a bird in such a cage." The prince's death at the age of 18 in 1612 discouraged Sir Walter, so that his history ends abruptly with the second Macedonian War instead of continuing through two more volumes as originally intended. Given the precarious political situation and restrictions on writing about contemporary history, many writers at the time used ancient history as a way to covertly discuss issues occurring in their own day. Although ostensibly a recounting of historical facts, Raleigh's work also included commentary that was construed by King James to be critical of his court. Several months after publication, King James ordered further sales of the book suppressed and all unsold copies to be confiscated "for being too saucy in censuring Princes." Raleigh was released from the Tower in 1616 to lead one final expedition to South America, but he attacked a Spanish outpost in violation of a peace treaty, and King James found reason to have him beheaded in 1618. This 1677 edition of The History of the World includes "The Life of Sir Walter Raleigh," "The Arraignment of Sir Walter Raleigh," and an engraved frontisportrait. At rear are "To the Reader," "A Chronological Table" and "The Alphabetical Table to the Principal Contents." The book is illustrated with folding maps and battle plans.

         Contemporary Manuscript of the fortification-works of Dunkirk, St. Omer, and French Flanders during the period 1677 - 1685.

      manuscript: 17th century. 8vo (20,0 x 15,8 cm). 221, (26 blanks), (5), (3 blanks), (1) pp. Contemporary full polished calf, gilt-decorated spine with gilt-lettered red morocco label, marbled endpapers. An important and highly interesting manuscript illustrating the military history of French Flanders in the 2nd half of the 17th century, especially the history and development of the French fortification-system and -works in that region during the years 1677 - 1685, after the French advancement in the Spanish Low Countries. To consolidate the French conquests, a chain of fortifications was built in northern France and southern Flanders. Three persons were responsible for creating this "iron frontier": Vauban, Louvois and Louis XIV. Sebastien Le Pestre, Seigneur de Saint-Léger Vauban [1633 - 1707] was the ingenious designer of all plans. Apart from an account of the siege of Luxembourg and 3 traits on fortifications and military buildings, the manuscript contains 17 copies of notarial writings, meticulously and neatly described, very legible, concerning the contraction of fortification-works, mainly at Dunkirk, St. Omer. These documents describe in a very specific and detailed manner the conditions of the building contracts, the materials to be used, the size and structure of the projects &c, the period of time to complete the works and the financial conditions. Covers with some scratches, joints bit chafed, corners bumped, marbled paper on frontal inner hinge strengthened, otherwise very well-kept. We join a 76-page booklet providing the index and the abbreviated contents of the manuscript, preceded by an illustrated introduction of the historical regional political situation related to the manuscript: Dunkirk, Flanders, Vauban and Louis XIV. An important, very legible, manuscript providing a fascinating insight into the design and execution of the military policy of Louis XIV during a decisive period of his reign.

         The primitive origination of mankind, considered and examined according to the light of nature. Written by the Honourable Sir Matthew Hale Knight: late chief justice of His Majesties court of King's Bench

      London: printed by William Godbid, for William Shrowsbery at the sign of the Bible in Duke-Lane, MDCLXXVII. [1677]. First Edition of Hale's defense of the Mosaic account of the single origin of all peoples. Folio: [10],380pp, with portrait frontispiece (signed: F. H.. Van. Houe: sculp.), three tables, and two small woodcut diagrams in the text. A handsome presentation bound in contemporary mottled calf, spine divided into six richly gilt compartments by raised bands, red morocco lettering piece gilt, marbled fore-edge, plain period end papers. Nath. Cholmley's engraved armorial bookplate to front paste down (one of the Yorkshire Cholmleys; his name appears in various 18th-century records, including the manuscripts of the Earl of Dartmouth, the History of Whitby, where he is identified as lord of the manor of Whitby (1779), and in A Picture of Whitby and its environs, where he is credited with erecting the "elegant town-hall," in 1788).

An excellent copy, binding firm, contents clean and crisp, short worm trail to ton inside corner of preliminary leaves (not affecting text), few scattered rust spots, very occasional foxing, else an exceptionally bright, wide-margined copy. Wing H258. Garrison-Morton 215. Norman 965. Lowndes 973. ¶ Hale's "most celebrated religious treatise. . . . The Primitive Origination argues for the creation of the human race by an intelligent agent; its arguments touch on numerous topics, including the impossibility of an infinite succession, the character of time and space, the demographic tendencies of modern England and of ancient Israel, and the unlikelihood of spontaneous generation in anything more complex than a mouse." (ODNB) In the 17th century, when Hale wrote his treatise, it was almost universally accepted that humans had been created by a supernatural being using supernatural means. But alternative explanations did exist, the most prominent positing that the first humans arose through some form of spontaneous generation at multiple times and places. In response, Hale advanced his theory that the earth was not eternal, but rather had a spontaneous "beginning," and went on to defend the Mosaic account of the single origin of all peoples. An important precursor of Malthus, Hale "seems to have been the first to use the expression 'Geometrical Proportion' for the growth of a population from a single family. . . . He believed that in animals, especially insects, various natural calamities reduce the numbers to low levels intermittently, so maintaining a balance of nature." (Garrison-Morton) N. B.

Wing H258. Garrison-Morton 215. Norman 965. Lowndes 973. Hale's "most celebrated religious treatise. . . . The Primitive Origination argues for the creation of the human race by an intelligent agent; its arguments touch on numerous topics, including the impossibility of an infinite succession, the character of time and space, the demographic tendencies of modern England and of ancient Israel, and the unlikelihood of spontaneous generation in anything more complex than a mouse." (ODNB) In the 17th century, when Hale wrote his treatise, it was almost universally accepted that humans had been created by a supernatural being using supernatural means. But alternative explanations did exist, the most prominent positing that the first humans arose through some form of spontaneous generation at multiple times and places. In response, Hale advanced his theory that the earth was not eternal, but rather had a spontaneous "beginning," and went on to defend the Mosaic account of the single origin of all peoples. An important precursor of Malthus, Hale "seems to have been the first to use the expression 'Geometrical Proportion' for the growth of a population from a single family. . . . He believed that in animals, especially insects, various natural calamities reduce the numbers to low levels intermittently, so maintaining a balance of nature." (Garrison-Morton) N. B.

         L'Homme et la formation du foetus, Avec des remarques de Louis de La Forge. A quoy l'on a ajouté le Monde ou Traité de la Lumière du mesme Autheur

      1677 - (64), 511, (9)pp. Paris, Charles Angot, 1677, in-4, (64), 511, (9)pp, veau moucheté, dos à nerfs orné, tranches mouchetées (Rel. de l'ép.), Seconde édition en français, revue et corrigée. Cet ouvrage fut publié pour la première fois en 1664, soit 14 ans après la mort de Descartes. Les nombreuses figures gravées sur bois dans le texte, dessins d'anatomie et de géométrie, sont de l'invention de l'auteur. Ce traité a été jugé si important par les contemporains qu'il fut souvent réimprimé, en français et en latin simultanément. Pendant longtemps il a été considéré comme le premier traité complet de physiologie humaine. Pour donner un appendice à son "Discours de la méthode", René Descartes (1596-1650) le rédigea directement en français. Les libraires hollandais le donnèrent à traduire en latin d'après une copie du manuscrit trouvé dans les papiers de Descartes après sa mort. Cette traduction publiée en 1662 était si incorrecte que tout le monde la refusa. Ne furent prises en considérations que les éditions publiées à partir de 1664. Dans l'ouvrage présenté ici, le traité de l'homme est suivi du Traité de la lumière (pp. 405 et suiv.) qui avait paru séparément en 1664. C'était l'une des premières oeuvres de Descartes sur la théorie physique de l'univers. Coiffes arasées et charnières fendes. Tchemerzine p. 309; Guibert p. 203. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Erste und einzige Ausgabe des seltenen Werkes über Hämorrhoiden. Johann Christian Frommann, Arzt (1623-1695) "Als zweiter Sohn des Professors am Casimirianum, späteren Direktors Andreas Frommann 1623 (12. März) in Coburg geboren, dehnte Johann Christian Frommann seine medizinisches und naturwissenschaftliches Studium reichlich aus. Doch fand er der hierbei Gelegenheit, Länder und Leute zu betrachten, ehe er sich auf heimischen Boden dauernd niederließ. Von 1643 ab war er ein Jahrzehnt lang unterwegs. Zu königsberg trat er in die akademische Lernzeit ein auch die Universität Upsala wurde besucht, wobei er die Krönungsfeierlichkeiten der Königin Christine mitansah. Dann nahm er zeitweilig auf der Insel Oesel bei einem schwedischen Generalwachtmeister "Condition" an und ging hierauf weiter nach Livland, schließlich nach Dänemark in Kopenhagen fand er zum einen bei einem Kaufmann "gute Station", zum anderen beteiligte er sich an Vorlesungen, Disputationen und anatomischen Sektionen. 1653 von den Eltern zurückgerufen, erwarb er auf dem Heimweg nach Jena den Grad eines Lizentiaten der Medizin das Leipziger Doktorat folgte 1668 nach. In Coburg wurde er 1654 zum Landpyhsikus ernannt- Als "preßhaffte oder kranke leut" an ihn gewiesen werden sollten, ging dieser Befehl - hier ersieht man den damaligen Umfang des Landphysikats - nächst Coburg selbst hinaus nach Rodach, Römhild, Sonnefeld, Neustadt, Sonne-berg, Hildburghausen, Schalkau und Neuhaus- 1655 trat er die Professur for Physik am Gymnasium hinzu. Und 1680 wurde er außerdem fürstlicher Hof- und Leibarzt bei Herzog Albrecht. Der mit einer Tochter des Kanzlers Johann Jakob Drach Verheiratete war tätig bis zuletzt "auch in seinem hohen Alter und gehäufften Leibes-Beschwerungen". 1695 (19. August) wurde er in Coburg den irdischen Dingen entrückt. Abgesehen von Disputationen reihte sich Johann Christian Frommann mit einer Anzahl medizinischer Fachschriften den gelehrten Ärzten ein. Auch verfaßte er mit historischer und naturwissenschaftlicher Gründlichkeit eine Arbeit über die Martinsgans und lieferte damit einen bemerkenswerten Beitrag zur Kulturgeschichte.

         Tractatus de ventriculo et intestinis. Cui praemittitur alius, de partibus continentibus in genere & in specie, de iis abdominis.

      Amstelodami : Apud Jacobum Juniorem (i.e. Jansson-Waesberge), 1677, 12, Gestochenes Portrait-Frontispiz, (32), 591, (1) pp., 3 Kupfertafeln, Pergamenteinband der Zeit mit handschriftlichem Rückentitel Titel kleiner Auschnitt hinterlegt. First edition printed in the European continent of Glisson's rare work on the digestive organs and internal tissues! With Coat of Arm ExLibris " Iacob Reinbold Spielmann", J. Striedbeck. del. et sculp: Argent.Francis Glisson (1597-1677) "introduced the idea of irritability as a specific property of all human tissue, a hypothesis which had no effect upon contemporary physiology, but which was later demonstrated experimentally by Haller". Garrison & Morton"Stimulated by ideas of his friend George Ent, Glisson elaborated a theory which he revised in his last medical work, the Tractatus de ventriculo et intestinis (1677). The theory presented itself as follows: The nerves carry a nutritive juice (succus nutrivus) secreted by the brain between cortex and medulla from particles of the arterial blood. The psychic spirits are the "fixed spirits" of this juice, which serves nutrition rather than the function of body fibers. As a chemical substance, the psychic spirits cannot flow fast enough to assure simultaneity of events in the brain and the peripheral parts. Nerve action is transmitted by a vibration of the nerves (caused by localized contraction of the brain), and the muscle fibers then contract because of irritability, a property which they share with all fibers of the body". Owsei Temkin, p.426"The doctrine of irritability does not exhaust the content of the Tractatus de Ventriculo et Intestinis, which, apart from the treatise indicated by the title, also contains a treatise on skin, hair, nails, fat, abdominal muscles, peritoneum, and omentum. Together the Anatomia hepatis and the Tractatus de Ventriculo et Intestinis constitute a monumental work on general anatomy and on anatomy and physiology of the digestive organs. Moreover, in the latter treatise [offered here], Glisson goes far beyond the stomach and intestinal tract. Apart from discussing the theory of digestion , Glisson manages to include theories of embryogenesis (in which the relationship to Harvey is particularly interesting)".

'Las imágenes elaboradas para significar una cosa diferente de la que se ve con los ojos no tienen una regla más cierta ni más universal que la imitación de la memoria que encontramos en los libros, las medallas y los mármoles tallados por la mano de Latinos y Griegos y de quienes, anteriores, inventasen cada artificio.' Así comienza la carta al lector con la que Cesare Ripa presentó su Iconologia cuando se imprimió por primera vez en el taller romano de los heredederos de Girogio Gigliotti en 1593. Ripa cumplía su propósito facilitando la interpretación de cada símbolo, pero el exito editorial se demoró casi un decenio hasta que en 1603 la obra se publicó con las ilustraciones que aseguraban su comprensión generalizada. A partir de esta, a lo largo del siglo XVII se sucederán otra treintena de ediciones en diferentes lenguas. Una de las que más éxito alcanzó fue precisamente la versión francesa que preparó Jacques Bie(1) quien, dándole la vuelta a la original de Ripa, elaboró las ilustraciones que ejemplificarían cada héroe, vicio, virtud o pasión y, con ellas por delante, le encargó a Jean Baudouin que reescribiese el comentario a las imágenes: estas pasaban a ser el punto de partida y empezar por la ilustración condujo a que se popularizase buscar su interpretación. El ejemplar que ofrecemos de esta reinterpretación que Bie propuso de la obra de Ripa pertenece a un resto de la edición de 1677 impresa por Louis Billaine, que debió ser adquirido por el también impresor y librero Laurent Hourdy, quien le dispuso una nueva portada a su nombre a la primera parte con fecha de 1681. Sugerimos esta circunstancia porque, aunque nos parece que no se ha señalado, salvo ese cambio, aquellos ejemplares con portada de Billaine 1677 y estos con la de Hourdy 1681 son estrictamente idénticos. También nos tememos que para su edición, Bi [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The History of the World, In Five Books Whererunto is Added to this Edition, the Life and Tryal of the Author

      London: Printed for Robert White, T. Basset, J. Wright, R. Chiswell, G. Dawes and T. Sawbridge, 1677. Hardcover. Very good. Folio. pp. [4] (preliminary verse titled "The Mind of the Front", title page in red and black),1-44, 51-54 (Life of Sir Walter Raleigh), [44] (Preface and Contents), 885 (with various errors in pagination, text continuous), [46] (chronological table and alphabetical table of contents); with inserted portrait of Raleigh and extra engraved title page (dated 1676), 8 double-page maps and plans. Contemporary full leather binding, re-backed with original spine laid down, later (but not recent) spine labels. Armorial bookplate on front pastedown, which also has faint evidence of an old erasure (notes on the book's pagination) and the name "Bernard Tannier" (possibly the distinguished Spenser scholar) in pencil; text very clean. Raleigh's last great work, which was first published in 1614 and went through ten editions by 1687. This is the first edition to include "Life and Tryal of the Author," which has been attributed to John Shirley (Brushfield 223J). Written while Raleigh was imprisoned in the Tower of London during the reign of James I, the work took aim at the absolutism of the Stuarts via its assessments of ancient institutions, as it "traced the rise and fall of the three great empires of Babylon, Assyria and Macedon, and dealt exhaustively with the most flourishing periods of Jewish, Greek and Roman history" (DNB). The entry on the History in Printing in the Mind of Man (117) speculates that the work's tremendous popularity was due to the fact that it was "not a work of history in the academic sense, but a political tract of immediate applicability" and notes that Raleigh's word was respected not due to his scholarship (though it was admirable), but "because he embodied all the glories of the reign of Elizabeth I, which at the time of publication had already begun to be transfigured into a golden age."
