[14], 343, 10(index) pp. Amsterdam, Steenhouwer et Uytwerf, ?The account of the 'Voyage' and the 'Second Expedition' in this volume are anonymous; and they were editied by Jean de La Roque (1661-1743). He was born at Marseilles, studied oriental languages, made some voyages to the Levant himself and served apparently, as correspondent to his father's newspaper. the captain who tells the story of the first voyage in a series of five letters, proves to be 'Captain Monsieur de Marveille' . But he does not go on the second voyage. The account of that trip was put together by La Roque from information furnished by M. Grelaudiere, who journeyed from Mokha to Muab to cure the King of Yemen, and two ship surgeons, Noiers and Barbier, .?( Hunt) . The first voyage was intended to intercept the coffee trade before it gained a foothold in the Egyptian and Turkish markets. The latter, beginning at Mokha, was to court the King at San'a'. It is also includes the first scholarly treatise on the origins of coffee in the Middle East. Of equal importance is the folding map of Southern Arabia produced in 1715, which remained the most accurate until Niebuhr's fifty years later. cf Hunt, 489; HÜnersdorff, 'Coffee: A Bibliography', p1284.

         The State of Russia Under the Present Czar.

      London: Benjamin Tooke, 1716. sep 22 2017. (5), 280 pp. b/w folding map. Hardly seems a maritime work but, according to the DNB, "Perry arrived in Russia in the early summer of 1698. He was first employed to report on the possibility of establishing a canal between the rivers Volga and Don... the work was begun in 1700... early in 1702 [he was] ordered to Voronej, on the right bank of the river of that name, to establish a dock. This was completed in 1703, after which Perry was employed in making the Voronej river navigable for ships of war from the city of Voronej to the Don. To 1710 Perry made surveys and engineering work about the river Don." According to this account, the Czar stiffed him, paying him only one year's salary for fourteen years of work. Perry takes his revenge in the introduction to this account. Cox, I, p. 192. The large folding map by Herman Moll is in excellent condition, as is the rest of the book. Bound in old mottled calf, rebacked to match, with spine label.

         Phoronomia, sive de viribus et motibus corporum solidorum et fluidorum libri duo.

      Apud Rod. & Gerh. Wetstenios, Amsterdam 1716 - First edition of the first textbook on theoretical mechanics based on the Leibnizian calculus, important for containing the first published discussion of the kinetic theory of gases. ?This textbook concerned advanced mechanics in the modern sense and was considered an important work, very favorably reviewed by Leibniz himself in the Acta Eruditorum? (Fellmann in DSB). ?The beginning of the kinetic theory of gases is usually assigned to the year 1738, when Daniel Bernoulli's ?Hydrodynamica? appeared at Strasbourg. The famous tenth section of this book pursued some of the consequences of the assumption that ?elastic fluids? consist of innumerable tiny particles in rapid motion. [However an] earlier attempt dates from 1716, and is to be found in the ?Phoronomia? of Bernoulli?s compatriot Jacob Hermann ? For us the importance of Hermann?s chapter XXIV is that it is, as far as I know, the first attempt to deal mathematically with the relations between heat and motion. The intuition that the speed of the particles must be squared is especially noteworthy, but perhaps not more so than the assumption that their speeds will not all be the same, so that an average must be taken? (Knowles Middleton). ?In 1716, the Swiss mathematician Jakob Hermann (1678-1733) published his book on theoretical mechanics, Phoronomia, in which he proposed the first definite measure of the heat of molecular motion. In Proposition LXXXV he wrote: Calor, caeteris paribus, est in composite ratione ex densitate corporis calidi, & duplicata ratione agitationis particularum ejusdem (Heat, in bodies of similar composition, is in the composed ratio of the density of the hot body and the square of the agitation of its particles), in other words, for the first time it was being suggested that the pressure is proportional to the density and the mean square velocity of the molecules? (Wisniak).Jakob Hermann (1678-1733) received his initial training from Jacob Bernoulli, and graduated with a degree in 1695. He became a member of the Berlin Academy in 1701. He was appointed to a chair in mathematics in Padua in 1707 (on the recommendation of Leibniz), but moved to Frankfurt an der Oder in 1713, and thence to St. Petersburg in 1724. Finally, he returned to Basel in 1731 to take up a chair in ethics and natural law. "While in Padua, Hermann lectured on the standard topics of the day, namely classical geometry, mechanics, optics, hydraulics, and gnomonics. However, his work with other scientists was almost entirely devoted to understanding, developing and applying methods in the infinitesimal calculus. It was while he was in Padua that Hermann did most of the work on his most famous book, the Phoronomia, which is a text on mechanics. Although he began writing the book in 1709, it was not published until 1716, three years after he left Italy ??Hermann held his post in Padua until his contract expired on 28 April 1713. While in Padua he had asked Leibniz?s advice about moving to a university in another country and Leibniz had suggested a position in Frankfurt-an-der-Oder, but advised Hermann to see out the six year contract he had signed with Padua. Although he had a very successful career in Italy, Hermann seems to have found the fact that he was a Protestant in a Roman Catholic country somewhat difficult and, of course, Germany presented a religious environment much more to his liking. After leaving Padua in April, he went to Vicenza where he lived at the home of Giovanni Checozzi (1691-1756) and Sebastiano Checozzi (1693-1719) until June, after which he went first to Basel and subsequently to Frankfurt-an-der-Oder to take up his new appointment. He spent eleven years in Frankfurt-an-der-Oder, again a position which, as we have explained, was largely due to Leibniz?s recommendation. But in 1724 Peter the Great called him to Russia to found, together with a number of others, the St. Petersburg Scientific Academy. He went to Russia in 1725, meeting Christian Goldbach in Königs

      Lisbon, Na Officina de Joseph Lopes Ferreyra, 1716. - 4°, disbound. Woodcut ornament on title page Six-line woodcut initial on p. 3. Large woodcut cornucopia tailpiece on p. 14. Overall good to very good condition. 14 pp., (1 blank l.). *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION. D. Luís da Câmara (1685-1723), 3º conde da Ribeira Grande, was godson to Louis XIV and had served with distinction in the War of the Spanish Succession, defending Campo Maior against the Spanish. He was a plenipotenciary at the negotiations resulting in the Treaty of Utrecht (1713) and, once Portugal was at peace with France, was sent to Paris as ambassador.The Count made his entrance magnificently, outshining all other embassies. Due to the discovery of gold in Brazil toward the end of the seventeenth century, and later (1730) diamonds, the Portuguese monarchs were perhaps the wealthiest rulers in Europe during the first half of the eighteenth century. Their attitude on occasions such as this one was, "If you've got it, flaunt it." This account describes in great detail the five coaches ("as melhores, que se virão em Paris excedendo o primor da arte ao precioso da material"), each coach ornamented with emblems and reliefs and drawn by 8 horses (pp. 4-8). Then the author moves on to describe the velvet and cloth-of-gold outfits heavily embroidered with gold, silver, and jewels that were worn by dozens of footmen, pages, secretaries, valets, Swiss guards, coachmen and postillions (pp. 8-10). The description of the actual entry occupies pp. 10-14.Louis XIV died on September 1, 1715; the Conde da Ribeira Grande served most of his seven years in Paris as ambassador to Louis XV, who succeeded to the throne at age 5.Ignacio Barbosa Machado (Lisbon 1686-Lisbon 1766) was brother to Diogo Barbosa Machado, author of the Biblioteca Lusitana, and like him "de elocução purissima, e que pódem servir de mestres da lingua portugueza" (Innocêncio). After earning a law degree from the University of Coimbra he served as a magistrate in Portugal and in Brazil, holding the offices of Desembargador da Relação do Porto, Ministro do Tribunal da Legacia, and Chronista geral do Ultramar, and was a member of the Academia Real de História. Other works include poems and historical accounts.*** Innocêncio III, 203: attributing the work to Barbosa Machado. Not located in Coimbra, Miscelâneas.

         Phoronomia, sive de viribus et motibus corporum solidorum et fluidorum libri duo.

      Amsterdam: Apud Rod. & Gerh. Wetstenios, 1716. First edition of the first textbook on theoretical mechanics based on the Leibnizian calculus, important for containing the first published discussion of the kinetic theory of gases. "This textbook concerned advanced mechanics in the modern sense and was considered an important work, very favorably reviewed by Leibniz himself in the Acta Eruditorum" (Fellmann in DSB). "The beginning of the kinetic theory of gases is usually assigned to the year 1738, when Daniel Bernoulli's 'Hydrodynamica' appeared at Strasbourg. The famous tenth section of this book pursued some of the consequences of the assumption that 'elastic fluids' consist of innumerable tiny particles in rapid motion. [However an] earlier attempt dates from 1716, and is to be found in the 'Phoronomia' of Bernoulli's compatriot Jacob Hermann ... For us the importance of Hermann's chapter XXIV is that it is, as far as I know, the first attempt to deal mathematically with the relations between heat and motion. The intuition that the speed of the particles must be squared is especially noteworthy, but perhaps not more so than the assumption that their speeds will not all be the same, so that an average must be taken" (Knowles Middleton). "In 1716, the Swiss mathematician Jakob Hermann (1678-1733) published his book on theoretical mechanics, Phoronomia, in which he proposed the first definite measure of the heat of molecular motion. In Proposition LXXXV he wrote: Calor, caeteris paribus, est in composite ratione ex densitate corporis calidi, & duplicata ratione agitationis particularum ejusdem (Heat, in bodies of similar composition, is in the composed ratio of the density of the hot body and the square of the agitation of its particles), in other words, for the first time it was being suggested that the pressure is proportional to the density and the mean square velocity of the molecules" (Wisniak). Jakob Hermann (1678-1733) received his initial training from Jacob Bernoulli, and graduated with a degree in 1695. He became a member of the Berlin Academy in 1701. He was appointed to a chair in mathematics in Padua in 1707 (on the recommendation of Leibniz), but moved to Frankfurt an der Oder in 1713, and thence to St. Petersburg in 1724. Finally, he returned to Basel in 1731 to take up a chair in ethics and natural law. "While in Padua, Hermann lectured on the standard topics of the day, namely classical geometry, mechanics, optics, hydraulics, and gnomonics. However, his work with other scientists was almost entirely devoted to understanding, developing and applying methods in the infinitesimal calculus. It was while he was in Padua that Hermann did most of the work on his most famous book, the Phoronomia, which is a text on mechanics. Although he began writing the book in 1709, it was not published until 1716, three years after he left Italy ... "Hermann held his post in Padua until his contract expired on 28 April 1713. While in Padua he had asked Leibniz's advice about moving to a university in another country and Leibniz had suggested a position in Frankfurt-an-der-Oder, but advised Hermann to see out the six year contract he had signed with Padua. Although he had a very successful career in Italy, Hermann seems to have found the fact that he was a Protestant in a Roman Catholic country somewhat difficult and, of course, Germany presented a religious environment much more to his liking. After leaving Padua in April, he went to Vicenza where he lived at the home of Giovanni Checozzi (1691-1756) and Sebastiano Checozzi (1693-1719) until June, after which he went first to Basel and subsequently to Frankfurt-an-der-Oder to take up his new appointment. He spent eleven years in Frankfurt-an-der-Oder, again a position which, as we have explained, was largely due to Leibniz's recommendation. But in 1724 Peter the Great called him to Russia to found, together with a number of others, the St. Petersburg Scientific Academy. He went to Russia in 1725, meeting Christian Goldbach in Königsberg while on the journey, and held a chair of higher mathematics in the St. Petersburg Academy until 1731 ... "In 1726, the St. Petersburg Academy began to publish a journal under the title Commentarii Academiae Petropolitanae. The journal was launched with an article by Hermann taking pride of place. Leonhard Euler arrived at the Academy in 1727. This was a difficult time since, following the death of Catherine, Peter II had become tsar at the age of twelve. There was political turmoil which had a serious affect on the work of the Academy which was close to collapse. Hermann worked at the Academy through these difficult years until, with the death of Peter II in 1730, the political situation stabilised. He had wanted to return to Basel, however, and had been appointed to the chair of ethic and natural law there in 1727. He had a substitute carry out the duties involved until his contract in St Petersburg came to an end in 1731 at which time he returned to Basel to take up the chair he had formally held for four years. He had hoped that a chair of mathematics would become vacant in Basel before his contract at the St. Petersburg Academy came to an end but this did not happen. "Hermann worked in mechanics and studied the 'inverse problem' where one has to determine the orbit from a knowledge of the law of force. He proposed the term 'phoronomia' in 1716 for the topic which was sometimes called 'rational mechanics' and is now called 'theoretical mechanics'. This appears in the title of his important book Phoronomia, sive de viribus et motibus corporum solidorum et fluidorum libri duo (1716) ... "An example of Hermann's approach is illustrated by looking at how he proved Kepler's area law. This had been proved by Newton in the Principia by using an intuitive limiting geometrical process. Hermann, however, gave a proof in the Phoronomia in terms of differentials. Although his notation was rather different from modern notation, and not particularly easy to understand, Hermann reworked the same ideas into a notation which is essentially that used today and sent his new version of the proof to John Keill who published it in Journal litéraire in 1717" (MacTutor). "The complexity of the process of mathematization of dynamics is particularly evident in transitional figures, such as Jakob Hermann (1678-1733). He belonged to the Basel school headed by the Bernoullis and, sharing their methodology, made important contributions to the analytical treatment of dynamics. However, he also leaned towards Newton and, on many occasions, preferred to deal with dynamical problems in terms of geometry. His methodology is thus quite eclectic ... Hermann's main work is Phoronomia, which, written during his Italian period, was published in Amsterdam in 1716. This work is devoted to the dynamics of solid and fluid bodies and covers many problems dealt with by Newton in the first two books of the Principia. In the preface, Hermann declares his intention of adhering to geometrical methods, since these seem to him more suitable for beginners [pp. vii-viii]. However, his knowledge of calculus is evident in the way in which he deals with infinitesimals. Hermann's Phoronomia is indeed representative of the process of transition that transformed dynamics in the first decades of the 18th century" (Guicciardini).

         Relaçam dos progressos das armas portuguezas no Estado da India, no anno de 1713. Sendo Vice-Rey, e Capitam General do mesmo Estado Vasco Fernandes Cesar de Menezes. Parte I.

      Lisbon, Na Officina de Pascoal da Sylva, 1716. - Parts I-III only (of 4). 4°, disbound. Woodcut monogram on title page. Woodcut headpieces, tailpiece, and initials. Good to very good condition. 22 pp., (1 l.). *** Second edition of this first part, reprinted (according to Innocêncio) without acknowledgment from Relação dos successos e gloriosas acções militares obradas no Estado da India, ordenadas e dirigidas pelo Vice-rei e Capitão general d'aquelle Estado Vasco Fernandes Cesar de Menezes, Lisbon, 1715, by Antonio Rodrigues da Costa. Freire de Monterroyo Mascarenhas anonymously published 3 sequels to it. Parts 2 and 3 are included with in this set; the fourth, Lisbon: Paschoal da Silva, 1716, is not present. A promised fifth part never appeared.Part 1 includes a lengthy, detailed account of the viceroy's reponse to a rebellion by the rajah of Canará, south of Goa. A fleet under José Pereyra de Brito sailed to Cumutá (Canará's best port) and several other fortresses and harbors, leaving a swath of destruction behind. Only 12 Portuguese died in battle, but Pereyra de Brito fell ill and died back in Goa. Included here is a poem in his memory, as well as 3 poems to the viceroy (one of them an anacrostic).Also in this part is an account of the expedition against the fleet of Angria, a powerful pirate operating out of Culabo (near Chaul, pp. 19-20). Angrià was defeated with heavy losses and the Portuguese blockaded his ships into the harbor at Culabo for at least 3 months. The Angria dynasty, established in the 1690s by Kanhoji Angre (d. 1729), is variously regarded as a family of pirates who grew wealthy by plundering British, Dutch, and Portuguese merchant ships, or as naval commanders of the Maratha Confederacy who were precursors of India?s effort to drive out the British. They usually plied their trade off the west coast of India. (One of the Angria family makes a guest appearance on the Brethren Court in Pirates of the Caribbean: At World?s End.)Also in this part, in lesser detail, are accounts of the Portuguese expeditions against the Sunda (near Goa) and an offensive against Arab ships in the neighborhood of Goa (pp. 20-22).Vasco Fernandes César de Meneses, 1º Conde de Sabugosa, was viceroy of India from 1712 to 1717, when he returned to Portugal. Portuguese India was in decline when he arrived. His rapid counterattack to the rebellions by the rajahs of Canará and Sunda led to the quick surrender of both rajahs. He also sent a fleet of 15 ships to attack the Indian pirate Angriá, defeating him at the port of Culabo. The Grand Moghul ceded to Portugal the territory of Pondá. In 1720 he was named viceroy of Brazil, holding the position for 15 years and establishing the Academia dos Esquecidos, among whose members was ths historian Sebastião da Rocha Pita.The author (1670-1760?), a native of Lisbon, began his studies in Portugal and extended them for 10 years, beginning in 1693, by traveling throughout Europe to study its politics and languages. Back in Portugal, he served from 1704 to 1710 as a cavalry captain in the War of the Spanish Succession. When the war ended he began to publish the Gazeta de Lisboa, of which he remained editor for more than 40 years. He also published numerous pamphlets such as this one, on current events.*** Innocêncio IV, 345; on the first edition of the first part see I, 258. JCB, Portuguese and Brazilian Books 716/2.

The first translation of Hauksbee's 1709 'Physico-Mechanical Experiments' (which was 'Sold only at the Author's House'), and in fact the second edition of the text: Henry Guerlac in DSB points out that this edition was the one chiefly read in France, and the one used by the pioneer electrician C.F. de Cisternay Duffay. A French translation did not appear until 1754. In the main article Guerlac describes Hauksbee's experiments, and the 'unique collaboration between the venerable dean of English science [i.e. Newton] and the vigorous, gifted experimenter. From Newton, Hauksbee came to understand the theoretical import of some of his discoveries; and for his part the older man relied on Hauksbee's practiced hands to test some of his conjectures. What particularly interested Newton we learn from the changes he made during this period in new editions of his principal works, the Opticks and the Principia.' 'Hauksbee's important experiments on electroluminescence, static electricity, and capillarity, described in the present wok, mark the beginning of sustained experimentation in the field of electricity' (Norman 1020). The anonymous Proemio (by the translator) praises Boyle and Newton, and explains that the motive of the translation is the inspiration of further researches. A scarce book, and an attractive copy.

The original title and foreword cover four pages, but an eight-page variant with an additional index for the four first parts was also printed and was meant to replace the original, shorter version. In this copy, both variants are present, the original one being loosely added. "Dædalus hyperboreus" was published by the precursor to Vetenskapssocieteten, Collegium curiosorum, through Emanuel Swedberg, raised to the nobility as Swedenborg, who also has written most of the texts in this publication, which are often based on the inventions, observations and experiments of his teacher Christopher Polhem. Among Swedenborg's own papers are his "Utkast til en machine at flyga i wädret" [An outline for a flying machine] on pp. 80-83. Furthermore, Lars Roberg and Johan Vallerius each contributed a text. The rare and interesting work, which has been described as Sweden's first scientific journal, was discontinued due to a lack of subscribers. It was reissued as a facsimile in Vetenskapssocietetens minnesskrift at the bicentennial in 1910. Vetenskapssocieteten later resumed publishing a periodical work when its "Acta" (in Latin) was founded in 1720. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

         Chirurgia Curiosa ...

      Frankfurt - Leipzig: Michael Rohrlachs seel. Wittib 1716, 4, 8 Bll., 746 pp., 23 Bll., mit einem zweifarbigen Titelblatt und 14 Kupfertafeln, im Pergamenteinband der Zeit wie immer Papier bedingt teilweise etwas gebräunt, feines Exemplar. Seltene, dritte und unveränderte Auflage, der zuerst 1699, und dann 1706 erschienen großen Sammlung von "Matthaei Gothofr. Purmanni, Chirurgi und Stadt-Artztes zu Breßlau, Herausgegebene Chirurgia Curiosa. Darinnen Ein jedweder Chirurgus nicht allein auffs gründlichste sehen und finden kan, was in die gantze Wund-Artzney vor künstliche Operationes, richtige Cur-Vortheile, bewährte Artztney-Mittel, leichte und geschwinde Hand-Griffe, gehören, sondern auch solche, durch und durch, mit sehr raren und sonderlichen Observationen bewähret wird. Alles in drey Theil und 73. Capitel abgetheilet, Und mit vielen darzu dienenden Kupffer-Tabellen und Vier Registern versehen". Purmann berichtet von Kopf bis Fuss - Von allen Operationen und Handwürckungen des Hauptes, Angesichtes und Halses, des ganzen Ober- und Unter-Leibes, und der äußeren Glieder, als Armen und Schenkel, und was dabey nöthig in acht zu nehmen.DER CHIRURG DES GROSSEN KURFÜRSTEN Aus Lüben in Schlesien, war Matthäus Gottfried Purmannn (1648-1711) einer der berühmtesten Wundärzte seiner Zeit. Als Militärarzt war er 9 Jahre in brandenburgischen Diensten. Dabei sammelte er in den vielen Feldzügen wertvolle chirurgische Erfahrungen. Besonders im pommerschen Krieg gegen die Schweden, namentlich 1677 vor Stettin in Bezug auf die schweren Verletzungen durch die gläsernen Granaten des Gegners. Der Friede von St.Germain beendete die Kriegshändel des Großen Kurfürsten. Purmann nahm seinen Abschied und wurde Stadtarzt in Halberstadt. Da er später in der kleinen, von der Pest dezimierten Stadt kein ausreichendes Auskommen fand, kaufte er 1684 eine Offizin in Breslau, wo er dann bis zu seinem Tode als hochgeachteter Stadtarzt wirkte. Eigentlich ohne wissenschaftliche Bildung, ein geschickter und mutiger Handwerkschirurg, erhielt er seine beste Ausbildung im Krieg, der Mutter der Chirurgie. Die deutsche Chirurgie verdankt ihm viel. So die erste Transfusion (1668 mit Lammblut. Er erprobte die Infusion an sich selbst und hatte bis 1684 schon 40 Trepanationen ausgeführt, wobei er die Knochenspäne mit einem Röhrchen fortblies. Während die Kunst der Plastischen Chirurgie bei seinen Zeitgenossen weitgehend in Vergessenheit geraten war, gibt Purmann ausführliche Hinweise zur Transplantation und zur Wiederherstellungschirurgie. Sehnenverletzungen der Hand band er mit in Alkohol konservierten Darmsaiten zusammen. Ein Aneurysma hat er totalexstirpiert und bei der Behandlung der Bauchbrüche verwendete er die innere Naht des Bruchsackes ohne Kastration, er praktiziert den Kaiserschnitt an der Lebenden, die Tracheotomie, ferner berichtet er über Anheilung einer fast ganz abgehauenen Ohrmuschel, deren Wundflächen zuerst "geritzet", und dann mit einem Heftpulver bestreut und mit Heftpflaster befestigt wurden, etc. Ein Pionierwerk deutscher Chirurgie!

         Chirurgische Schriften, darinnen nicht allein alle Chirurgische Hand-Griffe, sondern auch die Ursachen der Krankheiten des Menschlichen Leibes auf das deutlichste angewiesen werden. In zweyen Theilen.

      Nun aber aus dem Lateinischen ins Teutsche übersetztet duch Johannem Scultetum. - Nürnberg, J.D.Tauber, 1716, 4, (44), 381, (11) + 358, 21, (18) pp., Frontispiz u. 9 doppelblattgrosse Kupferstichtafeln, Halbpergameinteinband. "Fabricius describes the extraction of teeth, showing good pictures of forceps. He also refers to the filling of teeth with gold leaves." Prinz DIE DEUTSCHE AUSGABE = EIN RARISSIMUM Seltene deutsche Ausgabe eines Klassikers der Chirurgie! Hieronymus Fabricius ab Aquapendente (1537-1619), ein Schüler Fallopius', war einer der größten Anatomen und ein berühmter Renaissance-Chirurg. Er baute auf eigene Kosten das prachtvolle anatomische Theater in Padua, das noch heute zu besichtigen ist. Er war der Lehrer des jungen Harvey und hat ihm entscheidende Anregungen (Venenklappen) zu seiner großen Entdeckung vermittelt. Die einzige Abbildung in Harveys berühmter Schrift über den Blutkreislauf stammt aus einem anatomischen Werk seines Meisters. Durch den Einfluß des Fabricius wurde Padua zur berühmtesten Medizinerschule Europas. Seine "Opera chirurgica" war für lange Jahre und für viele Chirurgengenerationen eine Fundgrube praktischen Wissens. Im 1.Teil des vorliegenden Werkes beschreibt der Autor die krankhaften Geschwülste, Fisteln, heissen und kalten Brand, die Hernien, Bauch- und Thoraxwunden, sowie ausführlich Frakturen und Luxationen, etc. Im 2.Teil behandelt er die chirurgischen Operationen in der alten Ordnung "a capite ad calcem" - vom Kopf bis Fuß. Von der Technik der Trepanation über Tracheotomie und Steinschnitt bis hin zu orthopädischen und unfallchirurgischen Interventionen werden alle praktizierten Eingriffe geschildert. Berühmt ist das Buch auch wegen seiner sehr schönen Abbildungen. Viele heute noch gebräuchliche Instrumente sind in ihrer Frühform beschrieben und abgebildet. Besonders interessant sind die beiden ganzseitigen Abbildungen jener Vereinigung verschiedener orthopädischer Apparate, durch welche die Gelenke des menschlichen Körpers festgestellt oder bewegt werden können. Am Ende unseres Werkes wird dieser "Chirurgische Küraß" ausführlich beschrieben. Diese deutsche Ausgabe, in der Übersetzung des Joh. Scultetus, ist selten. Wie alle volkssprachlichen Werke fanden auch die deutschen Editionen bei den Gelehrten nicht immer Anerkennung und erschienen deshalb in vergleichsweise kleinen Auflagen. Im Gebrauch zerschlissen, sind gute Exemplare heute fast unauffindbar. Gegenüber den weit verbreiteten lateinischen Editionen sind deutsche Ausgaben sehr viel wertvoller. Nur diese Ausgaben öffnen dem heutigen Leser die ganze Welt der damaligen Medizin auf eine angenehme "Lesart". Ein Quellenwerk, das Gurlt in seiner Geschichte der Chirurgie auf 35 Druckseiten beschreibt. Krivatsy NLM-Cat. no.3820 Hirsch-H. II, 461 DSB IV, 507 Leonardo, Lives of Master Surgeons, 559-61 Zimmermann-Veith, Great ideas in the history of surgery, 230-238 Bick, Source book of orthopedics, 43-44 Zeis 9,38,146,151.

         The Whole Duty of Man According to the Law of Nature.

By that Famous Civilian Samuel Puffendorf, Professor of the Law of Nature and Nations, In the University of Heidelberg, And in the Caroline University, Afterwards Counsellor and Historiographer to the King of Sweden, And to his Electoral Highness of Brandenburg. Now Made English. With the Notes of Mr. Barbeyrac, And Many Other Additions and Amendments; And an Index of the Matters, Not in Any Former Impression. By Andrew Tooke, M A. Professor of Geometry in Gresham-Colledge. London: Printed for B. Tooke at the Middle-Temple-Gate, 1716. [xlviii], 387, [17] pp. Title page preceded by one-page publisher catalogue. Octavo (7-1/2" x 4-1/2"). Contemporary speckled calf, lettering piece, gilt-edged raised bands and gilt ornaments to spine. A few minor nicks to boards, moderate rubbing to extremities, minor chipping to spine ends, joints starting at ends, corners bumped and lightly worn, hinges cracked. Moderate toning to text, slightly heavier in places, dampstaining and inkstains to margins of a few leaves, a few other leaves have light foxing. Early owner signature to front pastedown, interior otherwise clean. $500. * Fourth English-language edition. First published in 1672 in Latin as De Officio Hominis et Civis, this is a synopsis of Pufendorf's De Jure Naturae et Gentium, a landmark work that proposed a thorough system of private, public, and international law based on natural law. Beginning with a consideration of fundamental legal ideas and their various divisions, Pufendorf proceeds to a discussion of the validity of customs, the doctrines of necessity and innate human reason. It is significant in part because it develops principles introduced by Grotius and Hobbes. Unlike Hobbes, Pufendorf argued that peace, not war, was the state of nature, and he proposed that international law was not restricted to Christendom. Motte translated and published the first English-language edition in 1691. English Short-Title Catalogue N25724. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
