         Pharmacopoea Wirtenbergica, in duas partes divisa. Accedunt syllabus medicamentorum compositorum.Stuttgart, Johann Christoph Erhard, 1754. Folio (31 x 20 cm). With a folding engraved frontispiece, showing the arms of Wurttemberg, several portraits of famous medical figures and a view of the city of Stuttgart. Early 20th-century half calf by Gustaf Hedberg in 18th-century style.

      - Blake, p. 350; Kremers & Urdang, History of pharmacy, 4th ed, p.54; WorldCat (5 copies). Revised and expanded third edition of the pharmacopoeia for the Duchy of Wurttemberg. The pharmacopoeia was composed by the ducal physicians Johann Albrecht Gesner (1695-1761) and Johann Wendel Bilfinger (1695-1756) and first appeared in 1741. Earlier, Wurttemberg had used the pharmacopoeia of the city of Augsburg. Traditionally, pharmacopoeias gave nothing more than the official composition of the most frequently prescribed medicines. From the late 16th century onwards, the publications began adding informative sections, combining textbook and formulary. The Pharmacopoeia Wirtenbergica was the epitome of this type of pharmacopoeia and was highly valued for its good descriptions. Revisions appeared frequently, with the dispensatory going through six editions between 1741 and 1789, as medical science changed in the second half of the 18th century. The Wurttemberg dispensatory "was the official book of its time most esteemed and used, even beyond the German frontiers It was one of the most comprehensive pharmacopeias, supplying information about all drugs, new and old." (Kremers & Urdang). With ownership inscriptions. With the binding slightly worn at the extremities, water stains in the upper corner of the first 100 and last 50 pages and some spots in the frontispiece; a very good copy.

         Lof en Oordeel van de Werken der Barmhertighyt

      Amsterdam: Nicolaus Visscher II, 1695. 4to (182 x 140 mm). [9] leaves. Half-title, 8 full-page etchings by Luyken, including engraved allegorical title, each with letterpress text on versos. Fine impressions. 19th-century polished calf-backed boards, several sheets of blank paper bound front and back.*** First edition, first issue of one of Jan Luyken's devout and inimitably cheerful illustration sequences, with bright, sharp impressions of the etchings. The title translates as "Praise and Judgment of the Works of Mercy." The engraved title presents allegorical figures of generosity and avarice. Engravings 2-7 illustrate the passage from Matthew 25, the Parable of the Sheep and the Goats, in which Jesus, foreseeing the Final Judgment, describes the acts of charity he received from those whom he places to his right: "for I was hungry and you gave me food," etc. The biblical passage illustrated is cited in the engraved captions at the foot of each etching, and is elaborated upon by a Dutch letterpress poem on the facing verso. The final illustration, depicting both Matthew 25.31 and 25.41, the final blessing upon the righteous and curse upon the wicked, shows the Last Judgment. This suite was reprinted several times. Of this first edition I locate one other copy, at the National Library of the Netherlands. Luyken, who " favored etching and rarely picked up the engraving needle ... was both the most fertile and one of the most versatile engravers of the Dutch school, and was with Romeyn de Hooghe and Gerarde de Lairesse the most important representative of Dutch copper engraving in the period following Rembrandt - Thieme-Becker (transl.), who judged Luyken's best illustrations to be those for his own devotional works. Van Eeghen and van der Kellen, Het werk van Jan en Casper Luyken (1905), vol. I. 262, nos. 1499-1506; cf. Thieme Becker 23:489. Not in Landwehr, who lists only later editions.

         Vrede is beter als overwinning [Peace is better than a victory]

      Jacob Gole, Amsterdam, c. 1695. - Mezzotint Image 238 x 176 mm, Sheet 249 x 177 mm. This rare and early mezzotint is from Communia Gaudia, a series of seven prints published by Gole in Amsterdam. The series was a reaction to the Siege of Namur, 1695. Often recognsied as the most important event of the Nine Year's War, the Siege of Namur saw the Allied Forces regaining control of Namur after it had been lost to the French during the first siege of 1692. Facing to the right, a standing male figure is about to light a firework. Several other fireworks are found tied to his belt, and a a small flag sitcks out from his hat. Cornelis Dusart (1660 - 1704) was a Painter, etcher and mezzotinter born in Haarlem. He was a pupil and heir of Adriaen van Ostade and was accepted into the Haarlem Guild of St. Luke in 1679. He inherited the contents of his master's studio and often worked over the latter's drawings, doubtless to make them more marketable. Hollstein 33.IV, Bartsch V.483.33 Condition: Trimmed to plate mark and tipped to album page. Some foxing top left corner and along publication line.

         1695 Christelycke Onderwysingen ende Gebeden. Important, rare Dutch church work.

      Fricx, Brussels, Netherlands 1695 - A very rare and important work in the Dutch church (see below). I find only one copy, printed before 1700, in the world's libraries, and no copies available for sale that were printed before 1750 (I searched using ViaLibri). This was an important work of sober piety to the Southern Netherlands in the late 17th century, and was widely distributed. This copy was printed in Brussels, which at that time was the capital of the Netherlands. "Polman has written about the specifically frugal character of the Dutch church book Christelycke Onderwysingen ende Gebeden (Christian Lessons and Prayers) and the way it differs from baroque books from the Southern Netherlands. See: Polman P., Katholick Nederland in de achttiended eeuw Part 1 (Hilversum, 1968) 131-133. Clemens also explored the sober piety in church books from the mission Hollandica. He looked at the enormous distribution of Christelycke Onderwysingen in the Southern Netherlands, and its limited popularity in the Northern Netherlands, suggesting that sober piety was not a 'Northern-Netherlandish' kind of Piety. See Clements Th., De godsdienstigneid in de Nederlanden Part 2, 172." – Meditatio – Refashioning the Self: Theory and Practice in Late Medieval and , M. East, page 311. Physical Attributes - Measures 17 x 10 x 3 cm. Five raised spines with compartments framed in filet with floral centerpieces. Blue and white endbands. Tooling around board edges. AEG (but faded).

         Urbs Domingo in Hispaniola

      Artist: Aa van der Peter ( - 1733) Leiden; issued in: Leiden; date: ca 1729 1695 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 28 x 34,5; - description: Map shows the city St. Domingo in Hispaniola as bird s eye view. With decorative offshore ships.; -vita of the artist: Pieter van der Aa ( 1659 - 1733) was a Dutch publisher best known for preparing maps and atlases, though he also printed pirated editions of foreign bestsellers and illustrated volumes. He also printed many maps that were often out of print, which he reissued. Some of his most popular maps were of the African continent, detailing locations such as Morocco and Madagascar. Many of his later works were printed for the general public in French and Dutch.Pieter van der Aa began his career at Leiden in 1683 as a Latin trade publisher, publishing classical texts pertaining to medicine and science. As he progressed, he began to publish atlases and maps, compiling numerous multi-volume collections of works. His ambition to become Leiden's most famous printer was fulfilled in 1715 with his appointment to head printer for the city and its university. One of Pieter van der Aa's largest compilations relates to the history of Italy and Sicily, an area of immense personal interest. Though he took credit for many of his compilations, several, such as the Dutch collection of travels to the East and West Indies, were admittedly simple improvements to others' works.

         INTRODUCTION A LA FORTIFICATION.

      - 188 engraved leaves printed on rectos only, comprising the 167 plates (2 folding) listed in the table of contents, plus 5 plates not listed or numbered, 9 plates numbered in French, the pictorial title page (featuring naval and land battle scenes), and 6 leaves of explanatory text for the first few plates, plus a folding table of distances, and a table of contents (listing plates numbered 21-189, as issued); oblong 4to; early calf, the spine with gilt lettered red leather title label and gilt decorated compartments between raised bands, the boards rubbed, with a few small surface grazes, edges worn, the leather lifting along fore-edge of upper board (especially at bottom fore-corner), small piece torn from head of spine, the upper joint starting at extremities; inked ownership inscription near the later bookplate of Alec Hill on the upper pastedown, earlier small inked ownership inscription on upper free endpaper, pencilled annotation at head of last leaf, most of the plates neatly numbered in an early hand, one plate (Paris) loose, some damp stains (occasionally large, but mostly to margins, with a few encroaching onto plate surface), several small edge chips and splits, occasional light creasing, scattered light foxing and soiling; chez l'auteur, Paris, [1695]. First edition. *Nicolas de Fer (1646-1720) inherited his father's cartography business, which he quickly developed into a flourishing enterprise, producing town plans, atlases, and over 600 sheet maps, and becoming one of the most prolific cartographic publishers of his era. In 1690 he was appointed official geographer to the Dauphin (the heir to the French throne), and when Louis XIV's grandson, the Duke of Anjou, acceded to the Spanish throne, de Fer was proclaimed Geographer of the King of Spain as well. De Fer made maps of places throughout Europe and in North America, including one in 1698 depicting beavers building dams near Niagara Falls.\i Introduction a la Fortification was issued in parts between 1690 and 1695, then re-issued in 1705 (with the maps re-dated accordingly). Maps in this copy are dated from 1692 to 1695, with several undated. They depict fortified towns in France, the Low Countries, Germany, Italy, Spain and around the Mediterranean. The extra plates in this copy are Chartres, Nouveau Canal, Echelle, Quebec and Batavia. The intricate folding \i Table Geografique enables the reader to calculate journey distances from Paris to all the principle towns in Europe. This copy is from the collection of Australian military historian and academic Alec Jeffrey Hill. Born in 1916 and educated at Sydney Grammar, the University of Sydney and Balliol College, Oxford, Hill served with the Second Australian Imperial Force in 1939, commanding a company of the 2/13th Infantry Battalion during the Siege of Tobruk. He later fought in the New Guinea and Borneo campaigns, and for his war service was made a Member of the Order of the British Empire in 1947. After the war he lectured in history at the Royal Military College, Duntroon, where he mentored a new generation of soldiers and military historians. Hill was a regular contributor to the \i Australian Dictionary of Biography , but his best known work is the biography of General Sir Harry Chauvel, which was published in 1978 and is regarded as the first modern scholarly biography of a senior Australian military figure. He died in 2008. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         JUSHIKEI RYAKI WAGO: TREATISE ON ACUPUNCTURE & MOXA. Alternate Title: JUSHIKEI H

      - [Edo ? 1695, Akatsujyu]. Brown stitched wrs., covers worn, solid, bit of old minor marginal worming, text mostly not affected, [50+5] double folded leaves, 3 vols. bound in one vol., 15 full page illustrations, new title label. R A R E *** *** *** . . . GODRON E. MESTLER'S PERSONAL COLLECTION COPY . . . *** A very early illustrated and most excellent monograph. This legendary work is written in Kambun with Furigana [Chinese characters with Japanese reading sounds] for easy Japanese reading. . * PER MESTLER IN HIS "GALAXY": . ".this work was "explained" by Okamoto and drew heavily upon JUSHIKEI HAKKI by Katsu Ju in 1684 Jushikei Hakkei is likely the work of a Chinese physician, then followed with a theoretical discussion by Katsu. The book is chiefly on acupuncture but equally on moxa, not on how to cure but on the more fundamental nature of the subject. This discusses the basic Chinese and Japanese belief in a relationship between the internal organs and their diseases & curative treatment for them at specific sites on the outside of the body. The balance is on moxa. Thus, Okamoto "explained" what he read and studied in this work, based on the earlier Katsu title. Mestler states on p.476 this is a 3 vol. set, Vol. 2 has 16 stunning illustrations of "channels & points" for acupuncture and moxibustion. . Moxa or moxibustion uses the herb artemisia vulgaris latifolia which is burned either on the skin directly, or on top of small slabs of garlic over the "points." Damp moxa is also formed at the top end of acupuncture needles, then lit on fire to provide maximum therapeutic benefits, after insertion in the appropriate "point." . *** RELATIONSHIP TO DATE & EDITION: Our 2nd volume shows the back colophon, the first printing to be 1684, and a 2nd printing to be 1764. Although Mestler cites on p.476, the work was published in 1693. . * This title, and also KATSU, Juu.: JUSHI KEI HAKKI: THE FOURTEEN CHANNELS: An Early Japanese And Chinese acupuncture & Moxabustion Medical Treatise [our book no. 200334 also part of the Gordon E. Mestler collection]. Chinese Title: SHI SI JING XU, [1684] are related. The 2nd part of this was with title JUSHIKEI KETSU CHI-HO, and later re-written & re-explained by Okamoto as JUSHIKEI RYAKU WAGO, [this title now described], published later. See GALAXY, pp.475,476 & plate I B opposite p.474 for additional details. . *** THE AUTHOR'S ALTERNATE NAMES: The author was also known as Ipposhi, Ichiku, Ittokusai and also: Tametake or Hakujin, this was a common practice for Japanese to have 'studio' or alternate first names. See GALAXY, p.474 footnote 10 at the bottom of the page. Okamoto's famous brother, was an author and playwright who was eminently known as the "Japanese Shakespeare." See Whitney p.317. . ***.

         Of the Consolation of Philosophy.

      London: printed by J.D. for Awnsham and John Churchill; and Francis Hildyard bookseller in York,, 1695. In five books. Made English and illustrated with notes, by the Right Honourable Richard Lord Viscount Preston. Octavo (187 x 115 mm). Contemporary sprinkled calf, gilt spine titles, blind decoration on spine, red sprinkled edges, contemporary inscription. Engraved portrait frontispiece. Covers scuffed, extremities rubbed, spine ends chipped, joints cracked at spine ends; frontispiece and a few leaves somewhat browned, still a good copy. First edition of this translation which includes "The Life of Boetius" and "The Testimonies of several writers concerning Boethius translated" in the preliminaries. The translator, Richard Graham, first Viscount Preston (1648–1695), clearly identified closely with Boethius, having himself been sentenced to death for his Jacobite activities, although he saved himself from the scaffold in 1691 (and earned himself opprobrium) by testifying against his accomplices. The translation was his occupation during his last years in retirement at Nunnington Hall in Yorkshire. The preface contains a number of references to his situation, including the complaint that his judges had been more lenient than friends who despised him for giving way under trials that they had never undergone.

Antonj Nuck (1650-1692), was also often called Antonius Nuck van Leiden, after his native city. He commenced his medical studies in Harderwyjk, but changed to Leiden where he received his doctorate in 1677 with the dissertation diabetes. He then settled as a practitioner in Delft. In 1683 he was called to Den Haag as a lecturer of anatomy at the Collegium anatomicum chirurgicum, working there as a teacher of anatomy before eventually returning to Leiden, where he was appointed to the chair of medicine and anatomy. His excellent theoretical lecturing, but even more his practical-anatomical teaching soon earned him a reputation that attracted students even from far away to Leiden. Besides anatomy, physiology was Nuck's most important field of research. Besides anatomy, physiology was Nuck's most important field of research. He did his most important work in investigating the lymphatics and glands, in which he used the injection technique much as Ruysch had done with blood vessels."Sialographia contains some of Nuck's best work on glands and ducts, particularly the salivaries and tear ducts. The six large engraved folding plates were drawn by Nuck". Heirs of Hippocrates No. 673 (1st. Ed.1690)

         Britannia. Newly Translated into English with large additions and improvements.

      Printed by F. Collins for A. Swalle and A. and J. Churchill. Folio. (405x250mm) pp. frontispiece engraved portrait of Camden; title page; [32], cxcvi (in double columns), 832 (double column), 833-848 (single column), 849- 1116 (double column), [18]pp Annals of Ireland, [24]pp index, [2]pp appendix. Fifty double page engraved maps, many by Morden and nine pages of coins and other antiquities, including Stonehenge as required. Contemporary panelled calf, spine with six raised bands and seven compartment. Title in gilt on a red label to second compartment. Covers have wear and stripping. Spine is worn at head and foot with loss. Cracking to hinges. An engraving of Paxton's Crystal Palace in Hyde Park has been stuck onto the front pastedown. The contents are in near fine condition with only one tear (to Xx3) which affects the edge of one illustration but with no loss to the text. This is a very fresh and clean text block. The only map with any damage is a small tear to one of the folds of the map of Norfolk. This is, perhaps, to be expected as the previous owners of this copy were the Bulwer-Long family from Heydon Hall, Norfolk who are kinsmen of the Bulwer Lyttons. The top of the title page has the inscription "Lt Colonel Bulwer from [illegible]". Aside from the condition of the binding, which can be repaired and restored, this is a lovely copy of one of the central works of early-modern British history and with an excellent provenance.William Camden (1551-1623) began Britannia in 1577. It was conceived as a full topographical and historical survey, his intention being to "restore antiquity to Britaine, and Britain to his antiquity". It was first published, in Latin, in 1586 and was hugely popular running to five further editions over the following twenty years, each one with new material added. By the time of the 1607 edition, maps and illustrations were included. The first English language edition appeared in 1610. Britannia is a work of chorography (Camden calls it a Chorographica descriptio), a genre which owes its origins and definition to Ptolemy. It is distinct from history and geography but includes both. Ptolemy saw chorography as the study of the smaller, constituent parts of the geographical whole. Camden's work represents probably the fullest example of the Renaissance revival of this branch of classical learning. Camden aimed to show, county by county, how the traces of the past existed in and informed the contemporary landscape. The most important fruit of this method was his detailed picture of Roman Britain, the first such study. Camden worked partly from first hand research, travelling widely in England and Wales (he learnt Welsh and Old English) but he also created a network of assistants who provided material for those parts of the islands he could not visit. The importance of Britannia was immediately recognised throughout Europe with later editions being published in Germany and the Netherlands. It remains a very popular work today, partly for the range of its scholarship and for the beauty and accuracy of the illustrations.

         Tab. VI. Asiae, Arabiam Felicem, Carmaniam ac Sinum Persicum comprehendens.

      Amsterdam, 1695. - Hand-coloured engraved map (485 x 340 mm). Striking old color example of the second edition of Mercator's Ptolemaic map of the Middle East, first issued in the 1695 edition of Mercator's Geographia, based upon the works of Claudius Ptolemy. Mercator's map was a landmark in the mapping of the Arabian Peninsula, being the last published edition of Ptolemy and without question the most heavily researched and studied of all editions by its maker. Ptolemy had originally drawn on the accounts of travelers and sailors and though the information was secondhand and often inaccurate it represented the most advanced account of the world's geography at that time. In the case of Arabia, Ptolemy overestimated both the width of the southern part of Arabia and the size and shape of the Persian Gulf. Arabia Petrea and Arabia Deserta are both placed in the north and Arabia Felix is the term applied to the whole peninsula, rather than to the southern portions of it. Ptolemy's map, as interpreted by European cartographers such as Mercator, was hugely influential and served as a standard for European mapping of the peninsula for many years. Tibbetts 39.
