Description:
Riga and Jelgava (Mietau): J.F. Hartknoch, 1769. Contemporary gilt-ruled polished tan calf (small abrasion to the rear panel), gilt spine and gilt-lettered morocco label, red edges, blue silk marker. Only Edition. BASED ON HIS PRIVATE COLLECTION, Scopoli wrote this for his students at the Schemnitz Mining Academy (Banskå Ơtiavnica, Slovakia). With considerable data on dozens of mines, this taxonomic guide divides the mineral kingdom into "earths" and "minerals". It gives the Latin and German names for fifty-two specimens in Scopoli's possession and notes where he found them, their chemical properties and physical characteristics. A botanist, chemist, entomologist and physician, the author later taught at and gave his collections to the University of Pavia. In good condition, early bookplate of Beat Rudolph von Tavel. ¶Schuh, Biobibliography of Mineralogy online 4 "Rare"; Ferchl, Chemisch[es]...Bio- und Bibliographikon 494; see Wilson's The History of Mineral Collecting 1530-1799 192.

Description:
Paris: D. Du PrĂ©, 1582. Early 19th-century straight-grained green morocco, gilt ruled double border with a vine and foliage roll, ruled flat spine and vertically lettered title gilt, all edges gilt, pink silk marker. Only Edition - a beautiful copy with distinguished provenance and the only example outside of Paris.      Durand's poem on the triumphs and trials of God's chosen people has three Books: Creation and the Flood (I), Moses, Joshua and the Judges (II) and the Kings of Israel, the rise of the Romans and the coming of Christ (III). He relied on, i.a., the Bible, NANNI'S FORGERIES OF HISTORIAN BEROSUS THE CHALDEAN, the philosopher Philo of Alexandria (c. 20 BCE-c. 50 CE) and Roman historian Josephus (37-c. 100).      Durand paraphrases the biblical text, narrates events and imagines the hymns sung by, i.a., Noah and his family. The shoulder notes cite his sources, summarize the plot points and provide the original Latin text. Durand served Henri III as counsel and dedicates (in verse)… Read more

Description:
Salamanca: [P. de Castro, 1538. Gilt brown morocco (B. Vera), spine and title gilt. FIRST EDITION OF THE FIRST PRINTED STATUTES OF ANY SPANISH UNIVERSITY.  SALAMANCA'S GOVERNING DOCUMENTS WERE THE TEMPLATE FOR THIRTY-ONE NEW WORLD HISPANIC UNIVERSITIES ERECTED BY THE END OF THE 18TH CENTURY.  Established in the 1220s, Salamanca was the jewel of Spanish higher education, offering degrees in theology, medicine, natural and moral philosophy, the liberal arts and law. "It was among the most decisive factors in the formation of the Spanish world and its ideology" (Riesco Terrero, tr.).  These sixty-five articles touch every aspect of academic life, from the election of officers and courses of study to library and archive maintenance and the hospital. They confirm the independence of the Rector, codify judicial checks on the four principal colleges, ban luxury clothing and stipulate that street sweepers keep their appointed rounds.  I have located seven examples world-wide (Salamanca, Madrid,… Read more
