      Im Jahr, Amsterdam 1698 - 95,[1]pp. Small octavo. 19th century paper over boards. Engraved title vignette. Some surface chipping to binding at extremities, occasional early ink annotations (including the scoring through of a name and an attribute of another name on the dedication page), occasional light early underscores, two terminal text leaves a bit creased and torn at gutter, with no loss, but a good or better copy. One of two 1698 editions in German of Lead's A MESSAGE TO THE PHILADELPHIAN SOCIETY (London, 1696). The other has a completely different setting of the title-page, with a large floral device rather than the detailed allegorical engraving that appears in this copy. Lead (1624-1704), an English mystic and visionary heavily influenced by the writings of Jacob Boehme, gathered around her a circle of like minded individuals formalized as the Philadelphia Society for the Advancement of Piety and Divine Philosophy, which flourished until the years immediately following her death in 1704. The Society oversaw the publication of her works, and fostered converts in Europe, as well as in North America. This work includes an explanation of the Society's purpose as well as its constitution. Her writings had some influence on later generations of serious religious thinkers, as well as on esoterics of various flavors and a genuine crackpot or two. Lead's original English publications tend to be quite rare -- ESTC locates only 6 copies of the London printing of this text. And although OCLC/Worldcat finds a decent number of copies of this German text held by European institutions scattered among several records, Bethel College and Duke are the only North American locations recorded there for copies of one or the other original edition.

        Vreden.

      Fysiognomisk studie. Teckning i svart krita med förhöjningar i vitt. Signerad "J. Gillberg delineavit". 40 × 32,5 cm. Lätt skrynklad. Fysiognomiken var en lära med sina rötter i antiken. Den försökte utröna sambandet mellan själsliga tillstånd och kroppsliga uttryck och fick betydelse även för målarkonsten. Den franske hovmålaren Charles Le Brun utgav en inflytelserik traktat i ämnet, Conference [...] sur l'expression generale & particuliere (1698), som synes ha påverkat även Gillberg. Två ambitiöst utförda fysiognomiska studier av hans hand finns bevarade, dels Förskräckelsen (la Frayeur, privat ägo), dels denna ståtliga teckning, som representerar Vreden (la Colère). I sin bok beskriver Le Brun hur denna känsla uttrycks (här i John Williams' engelska översättning från 1734):"When Anger seizes the soul, it is expressed by red and fiery eyes; the pupil wild and flashing, the eyebrows alike, either lifted up or depress'd; the forehead very frowning, with wrinkles between the eyes; the nostrils open and extended; the lips pressing together, the under one rising above the upper, leaving the corners of the mouth somewhat open, and forming a cruel and disdainful smile" (Charles Le Brun, A method to learn to design the passions, proposed in a conference on their general and particular expression, London 1734, s. 45.) Franska originaltexten: "Lorsque la colere s'empare de l'ame, celui qui ressent cette passion, a les yeux rouges & enflâmés, la prunelle égarée & étincelante, les sourcils tantôt abattus, tantôt élevés l'un comme l'autre, le front paroîtra ridé fortement, des plis entre les yeux, les narines paroîtront ouvertes & élargies, les lèvres se pressant l'une contre l'autre, & la lèvre de dessous surmontera celle de dessus, laissant les coins de la bouche un peu ouverts, formant un ris cruel & dédaigneux" (s. 41).

Nach Studien an der Universität Rostock und der Universität Leiden beschäftigte er sich 1630 an der Universität Wittenberg bei Daniel Sennert mit medizinischen Studien. Noch im selben Jahr wechselte er an die Universität Leipzig, wo er 1630 den akademischen Grad eines Magisters erwarb und 1631 zum Doktor der Medizin promovierte. Bald darauf wurde er an der medizinischen Fakultät außerordentlicher Professor und 1633 ordentlicher Professor. Im Laufe seiner akademischen Tätigkeit stieg er bis zum Ordinarius der medizinischen Fakultät auf. Michaelis, der sich vor allem um die Einführung der Chemie an der medizinischen Fakultät einen Namen erworben hatte, ja selbst verschiedene Rezepturen für verschiedene Medikamente entwickelte, war ein weithin geachteter Mediziner seiner Zeit. Davon zeugen auch seine Berufungen 1641 als Leibarzt des Herzogs Friedrich Wilhelm II. von Sachsen-Altenburg und 1662 als Leibarzt des sächsischen Kurfürsten Johann Georg II.- Papier tlw. etw. gebräunt und stellenweise leicht braunfleckig.

(16), 342 pp.; (4), 355 pp.; some mild damp stains here and there; old name on title. Le Comte went to China in 1688. The present work is «a compilation of various letters addressed to French savants that brought China before a wide public and helped to spread sinophilism throughout Europe. Its popularity was immediate... Le Comte's contribution to the study of China consisted essentially of observing geography, dress, customs and culture, and his book contains the first coherent criticism of Chinese architecture. The description of the Beijing astronomical observatory and Ferdinand Verbiest's instruments are partly based on the author's observations in situ...» [Löwendhal, China, 214 and 226]. Cordier, Bibl. Sinica, I, 40 (1st edn. of 1696). L'autore visitò la Cina nel 1688 e queste sue memorie, che si basano su osservazioni di prima mano, ebbero molto successo.

        Historische Erzählungen die Denkungsart u. Sitten der Alten zu entdecken..

      Kl-8, Titetblattkupfer, XXIV, 262 S., Kart d. Zeit m handschriftl. Rückenschild, Berieben, kleine Fehlstelle des Ueberzugpapiers a. Rücken. Eckausschnitt a. fliegendem Vorsatz, hinterlegter Schnitt auf Titellblatt, wenig stockfleckig. Erste Auflage. - Johann jakob Bodmer (1698-1783) Vom Vater zur geistl. Laufbahn bestimmt, besuchte B. vorerst die Lateinschule und das Collegium Carolinum in Zürich, wandte sich dann jedoch 1718 dem Kaufmannsberuf zu und sammelte in Genf, Lyon und Lugano Kenntnisse im Seidenhandel. Wie schon während der theol. Ausbildung standen aber auch da seine literar. und hist. Interessen im Vordergrund, indem er sich v.a. mit franz., engl. und ital. Literatur vertraut machte. Nach seiner Rückkehr arbeitete er erst in der Zürcher Staatskanzlei, ab 1725 als Verweser am Carolinum. 1731 wurde er auf den Lehrstuhl für Helvet. Geschichte daselbst berufen, ein Amt, das er bis 1775 versah. Ausdruck seiner reformer. Bemühungen um eine Öffnung der noch stark vom orthodoxen Protestantismus geprägten Kultur Zürichs war u.a. die Gründung der Verlagsbuchhandlung Orell & Compagnie (1734, gemeinsam mit seinem Neffen Konrad Orell und dem Landschreiber Konrad von Wyss) wie auch sein Einsitz in den Gr. Rat von 1747, wo freilich sein polit. Wirken begrenzt blieb. Bereits um 1720 begann die langjährige Zusammenarbeit mit Johann Jakob Breitinger. Nach dem Muster von Joseph Addisons moral. Wochenzeitschrift "The Spectator" gaben die beiden die "Die Discourse der Mahlern" (1721-23) heraus (1746 fortgeführt in "Der Mahler der Sitten"), gründeten 1720 die Gesellschaft der Mahler, 1727 die Helvet. bzw. Hist. Gesellschaft und entwickelten in den 1730er und 40er Jahren ein ästhet. und literar. Kunstprogramm, das sie weit über die Grenzen der Schweiz hinaus bekannt machte und Zürich zu einem Zentrum der literar. und kunsttheoret. Entwicklung deutschsprachiger Kultur im 18. Jh. werden liess. In ihren theoret. Schriften stellten sie sich in einen streitbaren Gegensatz zur Leipziger Schule Johann Christoph Gottscheds und wiesen mit ihrem Plädoyer für eine erweiterte Geltung der Einbildungskraft, des Wunderbaren und der Phantasie in der Literatur neue Wege. Dabei war es v.a. B., der die literar. und künstler. Talente nicht nur Zürichs, sondern Deutschlands an sich zog, so dass von 1750 bis in die 1770er Jahre sein Haus zum Oberen Schönenberg zum Sammelpunkt des geistigen Lebens wurde, wo neben vielen anderen Friedrich Gottlieb Klopstock, Christoph Martin Wieland, Ewald von Kleist, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Johann Heinrich Tischbein der Ältere und Wilhelm Heinse zu Gast waren. Neben seinem weltoffenen, unermüdlich regsamen Wirken als Anreger und Förderer war es B.s Tätigkeit als Vermittler, sei es durch die Übersetzung fremdsprachiger Literatur, u.a. John Miltons und Homers, sei es durch die Herausgabe vergessener ma. Texte, so v.a. der Manessischen Handschrift und von Teilen des Nibelungenlieds, aber auch etwa von Martin Opitz, was ihn zu einer der herausragenden Gestalten des 18. Jh. in der Schweiz machte. Wenig Wertschätzung haben dagegen seine zahlreichen dramat. und epischen Dichtungen gefunden.

        Icon durae matris in concavâ superficie visae, ex capite foetus humani . desumtae.With: (2) LADMIRAL, Jan and Frederik RUYSCH. Icon durae matris in convexâ superficie visae, ex capite foetus humani . desumtae.Leiden, Dirk Haak; Amsterdam, Jacob Graal, Hendrik de Leth, 1738. 2 volumes. 4to. With 2 title-pages, each with the same engraved illustration by l'Admiral (a seated skeleton left, facing a putto on a table with specimens in jars of fixative right, the sun at the putto's hand), and each with a different colour-printed mezzotint, each printed from 4 plates (3 colours plus black, ca. 17 x 12.5 cm) by Jan Ladmiral after Frederik Ruysch, pasted on inside of back wrapper, with green background and gilt border. Later stiff paper wrappers.

      - Franklin, Colour printing, pp. 41-42, items 3 & 4; Landwehr, Coloured Plates 107 (mistakenly giving the title of 108) & 108; Lilly library 101; STCN (8 & 7 copies); Wellcome Lib., p. 428; not in Norman Library. First editions of two anatomical descriptions of parts of the brain of a fetus, originally preserved and drawn by the Dutch anatomist Frederik Ruysch and here colour printed by Jan Ladmiral. They are pioneering applications of colour printing, among of the earliest colour-printed anatomical illustrations. The first depicts the interior brain tissue of a fetus about 8 months after conception, The second (which refers to the other as already published) shows the surface tissue of the same brain. Each gives the explanation of the plate in Latin, French and Dutch, These explanations also note that the illustrations are not painted but "tot verwondering" (amazingly) printed at a press "door een ongehoorde konst" (by use of an unprecedented art).The painter Jan Ladmiral (1698-1773) and his brother Jacob were pupils and assistants of Jacob Christoph le Blon in London, who invented the method of mezzotint colour printing. It seems that when Ladmiral offered his services to the famous Albinus in Leiden, he presented this technique as entirely new and his own, without ever mentioning Le Blon. Ladmiral produced 6 such anatomical illustrations for 6 separate publications, later published together under the joint title: Anatomische voorwerpen door Jan Ladmiral.With the letterpress leaves browned, but the illustration in very good condition.

        Prima parte dello specchio del mare, nel quale si descrivono tutti li porti, spiagge, baje, isole, scogli, e seccagni. Del Mediterraneo, ... arricchito di carte marine, costrutte dal famoso capitano Francesco Maria Levanto,

      nuouamente publicato dal padre maestro Coronelli... Dedicato all'illustrissimo... Dedicato all'illustrissimo... don Pietro Manuel Colon de Portugal...1698. in-folio (mm 490x343), grande frontespizio allegorico con titolo manoscritto nello scudo bianco, titolo a stampa, pp. (4 con Dedica), 138 di testo ma con gran numero di silografie raffiguranti porti, rade, profili altimetrici e vedute di città marine, completo delle 25 tavole a doppia pagina f.t. Legatura coeva in pelle moucheté, titolo e fregi oro al dorso (abilmente restaurato). Come spesso accadeva il Coronelli aggiungeva alcune tavole in base alla propria disponibilità. L'esemplare è quindi arricchito da due tavole allegoriche degli "Argonauti", una tavola a doppia pagina raffigurante l'Allegoria di Venezia trionfante, con scene di battaglia sullo sfondo; altra allegoria degli Argonauti con strumenti di navigazione, allegoria tratta dal Corso Geografico Universale, ritratto di Innocenzo XII, quattro tavole delle rose dei venti e strumenti. Si tratta dell'ultimo volume, in ordine di data, della raccolta dell'Atlante Veneto: ristampa della "Prima parte dello specchio del mare" opera pubblicata a Genova nel 1664 e poi appunto ristampata da Coronelli nel 1698 con piccole variazioni nel testo e correzioni alle carte. Nel titolo si accenna anche ad una seconda parte e ad un indice di cui però non si trova traccia in nessuno degli esemplari noti. Poco si conosce sul capitano genovese Francesco Maria Levanto, che "a sue spese" fece incidere le più accreditate carte nautiche disponibili sul bacino del Mediterraneo dell'epoca. Le scarne notizie ci informano che l'atlante – di pregevole fattura – presenta alcuni di questi documenti elaborati negli anni precedenti dallo stesso Levanto insieme ad altri tratti da un'opera olandese, De Lichtende Colomne ofte Zeespigel, pubblicata una ventina di anni prima da Anthoni Jacobsz e riutilizzata in seguito da numerosi altri cartografi (Goos, Donker, Tohrnton, Van Keulen ed altri). Nonostante l'opera non avesse avuto grande fortuna all'epoca, forse perchè riconosciuta come poco originale dai cartografi coevi, il Coronelli – che quasi certamente non conosceva il modello e le derivazioni nordiche – la volle inserire nel suo Atlante Veneto, come ultimo volume dell'edizione del 1698 (Valerio, 2002, p. 91). Vincenzo Coronelli (1650/1718) vulcanico religioso veneziano, fu cartografo, geografo e cosmografo ufficiale della Repubblica di Venezia dal 1685 e lettore di geografia nel 1689. Fondò l'Accademia degli Argonauti, la più antica società geografica del mondo. Fu autore di oltre 2000 grandi carte geografiche e di decine di importanti pubblicazioni fra cui ricordiamo il "Libro dei globi", oltre ai celebri globi costruiti per il re di Francia, "Atlante Veneto" e "Teatro della guerra" Bell'esemplare, antichi restauri nel margine inferiore bianco di alcuni fogli.. Valerio, 2002, p. 91. Armao. p. 132..

        Opera Posthuma. In quibus Excellentissimi Authoris vita continetur, ac pleraque ... Editio ultima figuris æneis illustrata, priori longe præferenda.

      Amsterdam:: Georgium Gallet, 1698., 1698. 4to. [2], [iii-xvi], 136, [137-38], 139-267, [268-271], 272-387, [1 blank] pp. Frontispiece, 19 numbered folding plates; extremities of pastedowns, frontispiece (gutter partly loose), title-page, and free end-leaves chipped, occasional light scattered foxing, not affecting legibility. Original full vellum, holograph spine title; soiled, spine foot torn. Library call number mounted at spine foot. Bookplate of Yale University Library, donated from the library of Professor John S. Ely, M.D., 1908. Title-page ownership signature of C. Helvigio, Lugd. Bat., 1710. Verso title-page ownership signature of Gustavus Guilielmus Henrici, D., 1769. Very good. FIRST AMSTERDAM EDITION, predating Garrison & Morton's entry by 2 years (Garrison & Morton 4299), and succeeding the rare first edition published for the Royal Society by A. & J. Churchill in 1697. Opera Posthuma is divided into three sections. "The first section consists largely of correspondence arising out of Malpighi's published works, on the viscera, heart polyps, silkworms, anatomy of plants and animals, helminthology, &c. The 19 plates at the end of the vol. belong to this section" (Osler 987). The second section, with its own engraved title-page, contains Malipghi's "De structure glandularum conglobatarum," followed by Alfonso Borelli's "Scrittura fatta l?anno 1664 sopra le opposizioni delli Sig. Finchio, e Fava, Inglesi..." (Osler 740), followed by "Malpigi's work (written in the name of his pupil, Placido di Papadopoli) in defence of his newer studies in anatomy against Liparo's 'Galenistarum triumphum?, 1665" (Osler 987). "A short report by J. B. Giraldus (with a sep. title-[age) is between Sbaraglia's 'De recentiorum medicorum studio? and Malpighi's response thereto" (Osler 987). Borelli's piece, Osler 740, first appears here in Malpighi's Opera Posthuma. Osler's 1697 edition differs from this 1698 one in two distinct ways: The first sections are the same, but the 1698 edition's second section begins with "De structure glandularum," while that piece constitutes the third section of the first edition. Both the editions have separate title-pages for this section, but the 1697 edition's says "Lond., R. Chiswell, 1697" and includes an engraved frontispiece, while the 1698 edition's reads "Epistola, Regiæ Societati, Londini ad Scientiam Naturalem promovendam inftitutæ, Dicata" and has no such frontispiece. Essentially, "De structure glandularum" has been moved from the end of the book in the first edition to the beginning of section 2 in the second. The first edition's second section does is not separated by a title-page, but this piece appears at the end with its own title-page and engraved frontispiece. The first edition's second section does have its own title-page, but has no engraved frontispiece for the section. Both editions have a separate title-page to mark Giraldus? piece. "Before his death Malpighi arranged for many of his manuscripts...to be translated into Latin by his friends Silvestro Bonfiglioli and Giovanni Lodovico Donelli and published posthumously by the Royal Society" (Meli, p. 112). His Omnia Posthuma contains "replies to his antagonists Michele Lipari, dating from his stay at Messina, and Professor Gerolamo Sbaraglia of Bologna" that are more combative in tone than what is characteristic his works published during his lifetime (Heilbron, p. 485). Malpighi was an Italian anatomist and microscopist, after whom many physiological features are named. He taught at both Bologna and Messina, before being summoned to Rome to serve as chief physician for Pope Innocent XII in 1691. Malpighi was ahead of his time, and rejected some archaic notions about diseases being caused by an imbalance in the "humors." "On the innocent quality of human bile there occurs to me a good remark made by Malpighi (Opera Posthuma, p. 22). During the rage of a severe epidemical distemper in Pisa, in 1661, the philosopher Borelli wrote to Malpighi for his opinion concerning it. Malpighi, in his reply, observes, among other things, that the bile cannot be the cause of that disease, because in cases where large quantities of that fluid are mingled with the blood, as in jaundice and other similar diseases, no fever is occasioned thereby.... This single objection is fatal to the hypothesis, and conclusive against the origin of fevers from absorbed bile" (Mitchell & Miller, p. 117). PROVENANCE: Christoph von Hellwig (1663-1721), a German physician whose works covered a variety of topics including botany, chemistry, pharmacology and veterinary medicine. He was brother to Johann Otto von Hellwig (1654-1698), a professor of medicine (at Heidelberg) and physician practicing in Batavia. Christoph accompanied his brother on numerous trips to the Netherlands, Portugal, Italy, and England during his lifetime. (Poggendorff, Vol. 1, p. 1058). "The German physician Hellwig ... was an elusive personage who moved his practice repeatedly from city to city and who wrote or edited (but never dated) more than 40 medical and pharmaceutical books, many of which were dictionaries, household medical guides, and reports of unusual cases" (Heirs of Hippocrates 717.1 [referring to Hellwig's Nosce te ipsum (1716)]). Gustav Wilhelm Henrici [also: Gustavus Guilielmus Henrici] was another German physician, and proves even more elusive than Hellwig. Henrici published at least one book during his lifetime, on female fertility: Observationes de ovis muliebribus foecundis et sterilibus (Erlangen: Camerarius, 1763). John S. Ely, M.D. (d. 1906), took his B.A. in 1881 at the Sheffield Scientific School and became Professor of the Theory and Practice of Medicine at Yale in 1898 ("Medical School Catalogue"). In 1896/97 he left the College of Physicians and Surgeons, New York, where Ely held the position of "Assistant of Pathology and Curator", Bellevue Hospital. Ely wrote a pamphlet, "A Study of Metastatic Carcinoma of the Stomach; report of a case of primary carcinoma of the testicle; secondary involvement of the Vena Cava Interior; Metastases in the Lungs, Stomach and Faix Cerebri," American Journal of The Medical Sciences, 1890. He wrote a paper "Diabetic Coma," [Yale Medical Journal, (1900), vol. 7, pp. 111-124]; another paper, "Mummification: one of the results of retention of a dead foetus in utero," Medical Record, Jan. 25, 1890, pp. 90-1. According to the Bulletin of Yale University, 3rd. Ser., no. 10, Aug. 1907, Ely was also an expert binder.
