Nasceu em Lisboa sendo filho do médico André Fernandes de Castro. A sua mãe tinha o apelido Vaz e também era irmã de três médicos. O mais célebre deverá ter sido Manuel Vaz, a quem se refere o autor no 2.º volume desta obra (pág. 47), como tendo sido médico assistente de quatro reis de Portugal: «Memini quidem expertissimum Emanuelem Vaezium avunculum meum, qui ob consumatissimum in arte medica judicium, et peritiam non vulgarem, fuit successive quatuor Lusitaniæ regum, Johannis tertii, Sebastiani, Henrici et Philippi secundi cubicularius medicus». Rodrigo de Castro foi estudar para Salamanca, doutorou-se e regressou a Lisboa, onde começou a exercer a profissão. O Rei Filipe II de Espanha (1.º de Portugal) pediu-lhe para ir para a Índia seleccionar e estudar plantas medicinais daquelas paragens, continuando as investigações ali feitas por Garcia de Orta e Cristóvão da Costa. Castro recusou alegando que a sua saúde não lhe permitia suportar climas tropicais. Em Maio de 1588 examina os soldados e marinheiros mobilizados para embarcarem na Invencível Armada. Muitos fingiam-se doentes, pedindo-lhe um atestado médico para serem dispensados do serviço militar, o que ele terminantemente recusou, como relata na obra "Medicus Politicus". Em 1588, ou no princípio do ano seguinte, Rodrigo de Castro fugiu para Antuérpia, onde ficou durante algum tempo. Por volta de 1591 foi para Hamburgo. Em 1596 irrompeu a peste na cidade e Rodrigo de Castro distinguiu-se nos cuidados que dispensou aos doentes e no combate à doença. Mais tarde, escreveu um livro sobre a natureza e as causas da peste. A asa mulher faleceu em 1603, deixando-lhe filhos pequenos. Nesse mesmo ano publicou este tratado de ginecologia que é e sua principal obra. A sua fama ultrapassou os limites da cidade de Hamburgo. Foi consultado pelo Rei da Dinamarca, pelo Arcebispo de Bremen, pelo Duque de Holstein e pelo Conde de Hessen. Depois da morte de sua esposa, converteu-se à prática da religião judaica, adoptando o nome [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        POEMS CHIEFLY CONSISTING OF SATYRS AND SATYRICAL EPISTLES

      R. Bentley, London 1689 - 16mo, (6.75" x 4.5") Half-calf over non-pareil marbled boards.Outer spine lacking but binding tight. Lacks pp. 27-30, which, according to the table of contents should be "Sylvia Perjured", but no pages appear cut out, perhaps rather neglected to originally be bound-in. The later -- probably 19th century rebinding resulted in some over-trimming of the top-of-page titles. Interior very, clean, but for some centuries-old inked signatures, including a signed name (Edey E?gar Smith??), followed by her flyleaf-rhyme warning, dated 1793, nearly a century after the book's publication: "Don't steal this book for fear of shame for year you see the oner name" -- most likely a schoolchild's rendition of a then-popular flyleaf rhyme found on a bible in Concord, Mass: "Steal Not this book / for Fear of Shame / for Here You See / the Owner['s] Name (Folklore and Book Culture, by Kevin J. Haynes).310 pages. Title page pasted onto blank page. Boards show edgewear but very good. . No Publisher stated [R.Bentley]. Stated "Printed and to be sold by most booksellers in London and Westminster."(Watson NCBEL 475). Robert Gould [ca. 1660-1709] was born in poverty, worked as a footman to the wealthy, and later, after achieving some success writing, worked as a schoolteacher. His early poetry was at least somewhat influenced by Juvenal, but when Gould published "Love Given Over.", his baldly misogynistic diatribe, he far surpassed the relatively tame Satirist whose style he at least drew upon. Gould used his writing to win his independence in the most literal way. He is remarkable in that he is one of the few poets of his generation not born into the upper class. His poetry and satires reflected the licentiousness of the Restoration period. ".Nor is it a wonder, when we consider that Women (as if they . had the Ingredient of Fallen-Angel in their Composition) the more they are lash't, are but the more hardned in Impenitence.Judge, then, if Satyr ever had more need of a sharper sting than now, when he can look out his Cell on no side, but sees so many Objects beyond the reach of Indignation. Nor is it altogether unreasonable for me (while others are lashing the Rebellious times into obedience) tohave one sting at Woman, the original of Mischief." (Advertisement, from LOVE GIVEN OVER: OR, A SATYR AGAINST THE PRIDE, LUST AND INCONSTANCY, &C., OF WOMAN (1680). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Escalier des sages ou la philosophie des anciens

      Singular work in the history of alchemy and surely the most exotic in the rendering of its plates with the acrostics for the alchemical terms and elements.Second issue of the first edition of this extremely rare work on alchemy in French by Coenders Van Helpen. "The fact that the title leaf bears a different watermark from the rest of the book suggests that it is a cancelled leaf, the whole being a reissue of unsold sheets of the 1686 edition together with two leaves of errata. In other words this is not a new edition but the second issue of the first edition" (Mellon Coll. 142). Extremley rare work. ABPC gives a single copy sold in may 2011 for 6300 EUR, with the engravings somewhat browned. The engravings in our copy are in perfect condition, extremely bright and strong impression. The CCFR BNF locates a single copy in France at Sorbonne. There were two editions of this work, the first one with two issues (1686 and 1689), the other published in 1693, with another title "Tresor de la philosophie des anciens". All three editions are rare, but the first two almost impossible to find. The books is highly sought after especially because of it's fantastic plates with acrostics, some of the most beautiful in the history of the hermetic iconology. As the author explains, the work is divided in 4 books which reveal the 10 degrees of ancient wisdom and is written as a conversation between Francois and Vrederic, the first sustaining his argument on theory, the second on practice and experiences.Physical description: folio (33 x 22 cm), binding half vellum with marbled paper covers. Some stains on the last pages of the Indice des chapitres, (see photo), but overall very good, with plates in perfect condition and strong impression (see photos). The paper used in the production of this work is of great quality, containing three kinds of watermarks, with two kind of coat of arms.Collation: frontispiece missing, replaced here in a good facsimile on old paper (see photo), title page, 4 pages "Fautes de l'imprimeur", preface (4 pages), 240 pages and 12 engraved plates with allegorical illustrations and 5 engraved plates with geometrical figures. The last page of the Indice is also replaced in good facsimile on old paper, hardly to notice.Bibliography: Duveen 287. Cf. Caillet 2417. Verginelli Rota 74 (edition from 1693): "L'opera è originale e interessante. Molto rara e perciò poco nota anche agli specialisti a ai repertori". Missing in Zadrobilek - Opus Magnum.

He was a painter, etcher and diplomat and famous for his landscapes (136 items). He developed his own style, probably as an auto-didact. Although Waterloo traveled widely, many of his landscapes were probably imagined in the workshop and were influenced by the work of other landscapists. Although mostly etching he is known to have added accents to his work by burin and other engraving techniques as well. Jacob Esselens (1626-1687) is said to have been a pupil of Rembrandt. Condition: Very good, given age. Ample margins General age-related toning and/or occasional minor defects from handling. Please study scan carefully. Storage location: LA-C5-LA-19 The overall size is ca. 8.1 x 6.1 inch. The image size is ca. 5.5 x 4.5 inch. The overall size is ca. 20.6 x 15.6 cm. The image size is ca. 14 x 11.5 cm.

He was a contemporary of the older Virgil and Horace, with whom he is often ranked as one of the three canonical poets of Latin literature. The Imperial scholar Quintilian considered him the last of the Latin love elegists. He enjoyed enormous popularity, but, in one of the mysteries of literary history, was sent by Augustus into exile in a remote province on the Black Sea, where he remained until his death. Ovid himself attributes his exile to carmen et error, "a poem and a mistake", but his discretion in discussing the causes has resulted in much speculation among scholars. The first major Roman poet to begin his career during the reign of Augustus, Ovid is today best known for the Metamorphoses, a 15-book continuous mythological narrative written in the meter of epic, and for works in elegiac couplets such as Ars Amatoria ("The Art of Love") and Fasti. His poetry was much imitated during Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages, and greatly influenced Western art and literature. The Metamorphoses remains one of the most important sources of classical mythology. (From Wikipedia). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

"- FIRTS ISSUE - This example of the map is taken from the very rare Coronelli's ""Citta, Fortezze e, Isole, e Porti principlai dell'Europa in Pianta et in Elevatione, Descritte, e Publicate Ad uso dell'Accademia Cosmografica degli Argonauti dal Padre Maestro Coronelli Lettore, e Cosmografo della Serenissima Republica di Venezia"" printed in Venice by Domenico Padovani in 1689. This rare production by Venetian cartographer Vincenzo Coronelli is the earliest and most important obtainable map of the Great Lakes and the headwaters of the Mississippi. Coronelli's map centers on Lake Superior, but covers all five Great Lakes and extends westward as far as the Upper Mississippi River Valley. Cartographically this map is essentially an elaboration upon the 1688 Nolin/Coronelli map, 'Partie Occidentale du Canada ou de la Nouvelle France.' Coronelli was particularly fascinated with the Great Lakes region and this map includes numerous updates and elaborations. Coronelli derived his cartographic information from the reports of Jesuit Missionaries, most of which were collected by Jean Baptiste-Louis Franquelin, who effectively acted as a cartographic clearing house of information flowing out of French America. The several explorers who influenced this map are La Salle, Hennepin, Marquette, Jolliet, Dablon, and Allouez, among others. The traces of their passage can be found throughout. Lake Ontario is named Frontenac, after the Governor of New France. On the north shore of Lake Erie the three peninsulas are clearly visible in their third time in print (two previous though more general Coronelli publications). Fort Miami, founded by La Salle, appears at the southern tip of Lake Michigan. Various portages used by explorers and fur traders are noted throughout. Coronelli identifies the R. De Chekagou roughly where Chicago is today, as well as a portage to the F. de Chekogou just to the southwest. This is also the most accurate early mapping of Lake Superior, in which both Keweenaw Peninsula (P. Kioanan) and Isle Royale (I. Miniong) are located. Coronelli has decorated the map throughout with numerous wonderful vignettes depicting the day-to-lives lives of American Indians. One in particular, a crocodile eating a man, is interesting and incongruous. This map was prepared for inclusion in the second edition of Coronelli's important 1695 Atlante Veneto. In many ways this 1694 map is superior to the second most significant map of the Great Lakes, the Charlevoix/Bellin map, which appeared nearly 100 years later. It is a keystone map for any Great Lakes collection. Literature: Burden, Phillip D., The Mapping of North America: A List of Printed Maps, 1511-1670, #701.

        [Male pantin].[Paris, ca. 1750]. Handcoloured engraving of a man (33.5 x 26 cm), with the separate parts designed to be cut out and assembled to form a puppet.

      Gumuchian 6028; Metken, ill. 241; cf. Adams & Keene, Paper dolls, pp. 14-20; Hillier, Dolls and doll-makers, p. 45. Rare hand-coloured print for making a jumping jack in the form of a rococo man dressed in a waistcoat, breeches and carrying a plumed hat, possibly intended to represent the French King Louis XV. Rudimentary marionettes such as these with articulated limbs were in great vogue in Paris in the 1740s and 1750s and called pantins after the nearby village where they were supposedly invented. The diarist Edmond Barbier (1689-1771) wrote in his journal in 1747: "At first the Pantins were designed for children's toys; but after a time they were used to amuse the entire public. They were little figures made of pasteboard. All parts of the body were separate and were attached by strings at the back of the figure. When these strings were pulled, the arms, legs, and head were all jointed together and the Pantin could be made to dance… These silly things engrossed the attention of all of Paris, amusing everyone to such an extent that you could not go into any house in January 1747, without finding a Pantin hanging by the mantelpiece" (Hillier). D'Alembert wrote in the Encyclopédie , 24 (1778), s.v. "Pantins", that "posterity will find it difficult to believe that in France persons of a ripe age could have, in an access of vertigo that lasted far too long, amused themselves with these ridiculous toys and employed themselves in searching for them with such enthusiasm, while in other countries Pantins were relegated to children of the most tender age" (Adams). Slightly worn and soiled at the edges and with a few spots; in very good condition.

        Peloponnesus

      Artist: Cantelli da Vignola Giacomo (d) ; issued in: Modena; date: (d)1689 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 43 x 55; - description: Map of the Peloponnese; - vita of the artist: Giacomo Cantelli da Vignola (1643 - 1695) was an important Italian cartographer and engraver Cantelli was born in Montorsello, near Vignola Italy to a prominent local family. After studying literature at the University of Bologna, Cantelli took a position as secretary to the Marquis Obizzi de Ferrara. Eventually Cantelli relocated to Venice where developed an interest in cartography. He later traveled to Paris in the company of the French ambassador where became acquainted with the French cartographer Guillaume Sanson, as well as his contemporaries Jacques-Andre Duval and Michel-Antoin Baudrand. It was most likely the influence of these innovative French cartographers that inspired Cantelli's careful and meticulous approach, in which he based his cartography not just on earlier maps, but also very much in the French style upon accounts written by travelers and merchants regarding actual travel to foreign lands. Back in Italy, Cantelli took service Count Rinieri Marescotti, with whom he traveled extensively throughout Italy, becoming in the process acquainted with the Italian publisher Giovanni Giacomo de Rossi. It is with Rossi that Cantelli began officially publishing his maps. The earliest maps to bear the Cantelli-Rossi imprint date to 1672 and detail the Holy Land, Persia, and the Ottoman Empire. Around 1680 the duo also began to publish the Mercurio Geografico, a large format atlas illustrating all parts of the world in a splendid Italian baroque detail defined by elaborate finely engraved cartouche work, high quality paper, and bold Roman lettering, and dark rich inks. Some have compared his style go that of Giovanni Antonio Magini, another Italian cartographer of the previous generation. Cantelli da Vignola in fact pioneered the Italian style of fine bold engraving that would eventually be embraced and expanded upon by Vincenzo Coronelli. His work drew the attention of Pope Innocent XI and Reggio Francesco II d'Este, the Duke of Modena, both of whom offered him a position as court geographer. Cantelli chose to work with the Due of Modena, in the service of whom he produced numerous maps and well as two large globes.
