About this Item: ReInk Books, 2018. Softcover. Condition: NEW. Reprinted from 1852 edition. Language: ita. NO changes have been made to the original text. This is NOT a retyped or an ocr'd reprint. Illustrations, Index, if any, are included in black and white. Each page is checked manually before printing. As this reprint is from very old book, there could be some missing or flawed pages, but we always try to make the book as complete as possible. Fold-outs, if any, are not part of the book. If the original book was published in multiple volumes then this reprint is of only one volume, not the whole set. This paperback book is SEWN, where the book block is actually sewn (smythe sewn/section sewn) with thread before binding which results in a more durable type of paperback binding. It can also be open wide. The pages will not fall out and will be around for a lot longer than normal paperbacks. This print on demand book is printed on high quality acid-free paper. Original Publisher: Venezia : Nel privil. stabil. nazionale di G. Antonelli ed. 952 pages. Seller Inventory # 453710885

About this Item: Hard Cover. Condition: Good. TESTACEA FLUVIATILIA QUAE IN ITINERE PER BRASILLIAM ANNIS MDCCCXVII – MDCCCXX [1817-1820]. JUSSU ET AUSPICIIS MAXIMILIANI JOSEPHI I. BAVARIAE REGIS AUGUSTISSIMI SUCEPTO COLLEGIT ET PINGENDA CURAVIT DR. J. B. DE PIX, Quondam Ordinis Regii Coronae Bavaricae Civilis Eques, Academiae scientiarum Bavaricae Socius Ordianarius, Musei Regii zoologici, zootomici et ethnographici Conservator rel. DIGESSIT, DESCRIPSIT ET OBSERVATIONIBUS ILLUSTRAVIT Dr. J. A. WAGNER EDIDERUNT Dr. F. a PAULA de SCHRANK et Dr. C. F. P. de Martius. MONACHII [Munique], TYPIS C. WOLF. 1827. In folio, de 38x28 cm com [iv] 36, [2] págs. Encadernação da época com lombada e cantos em pele, com leves vestigios de trabalho de traça nas pastas. Ilustrado com 29 litografias em extratexto coloridas à mão reproduzindo conchas. Obra completa, as gravuras XXVIII e XXIX não se encontram no índice, apesar de estarem referidas no texto. A gravura VIII está fora de ordem, aparecendo a seguir à gravura XII. Esta monografia é uma de várias publicações resultantes da expedição de Spix ao Brasil, entre 1817 e 1820, patrocinada pelo rei da Baviera, Maximiliano José I. É o primeiro estudo científico sobre moluscos de água doce do Brasil. Regressado a Munique após a expedição, Spix morre em 1826 devido a febres resultantes da viagem, deixando parte do seu trabalho por publicar. A edição dos seus trabalhos foi efectuada por outros zoólogos, principalmente por Louis Agassiz. Esta obra contém descrições, legendas e comentários da autoria do Dr. J. A. Wagner e foi editado por F. a Paula von Schrank e C. F. P. de Martius. Martius e Spix foram os primeiros cientistas europeus a visitar a Amazónia após Charles de La Condamine (entre 1735 e 1744) e as suas recolhas forneceram material para um vasto número de trabalhos de outros cientistas. [EN] In folio, 38x28 cm, [iv] 36, [2] pp. Binding: contemporary half calf. Illustrated with 29 hand coloured lithographies interspersed hors-text, depicting shells. The engravings XXVIII and XXIX don’t appear in the Index but they are mentioned and commented in the text. Engraving VIII is out of order and appears after number XII. One of several publications resulting from Spix's expedition to Brazil from 1817 to 1820, sponsored by Maximilian Joseph I, this monography is the first study on Brazilian fresh water molluscs. Returning to Munich after the expedition, Spix dies in 1826 of a fever resulting from the voyage, leaving part of his work unpublished. His works are nevertheless published by other zoologists, especially by Louis Agassiz. This work contains captions of the engravings and observations by Dr. J.A. Wagner and has been edited by F. a Paula von Schrank and C.F.P. de Martius. Martius and Spix were the first European scientists to visit the Amazon after Charles de La Condamine (between 1735 and 1744), and their collections supplied materials to a wide range of works from other scientists.

About this Item: Florence, Giorgio Marescotti, 1583, 1583. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. 4to (213 x 145 mm), pp [xl] 621 [11], with woodcut printer’s device on title and colophon; prelims with some spotting, some occasional marginal spotting elsewhere, a very good copy in nineteenth-century marbled boards, rubbed, in a black morocco box. First edition, an important annotated copy, of the foundation text of scientific botany and the first articulation of the modern concept of species. This copy belonged to Joachim Camerarius the younger and has his extensive annotations throughout; subsequently, it belonged to two other prominent botanists (see below). This work is one of the most revolutionary texts of biology in the sixteenth century. ‘With the knowledge of new fauna and flora coming into Europe from the New World and the East, and the creation of many new botanical gardens, the need was felt for a more scientific classification of plants. With Andreas Caesalpino a new era begins. He was professor of materia medica and director of the botanical garden at Pisa and later professor in Rome and physician to Pope Clement VIII. His book “On Plants” was the first attempt to classify plants in a systematic manner based on a comparative study of forms’ (PMM). ‘Cesalpino was the first to devise a rational classification system based upon plant morphology, the principles of which he set forth in the first book of De plantis. He insisted that distinctions among species should be made only according to similarity or dissimilarity of forms, and that “accidental” attributes, such as medicinal use and habitat, must not be considered. (Norman catalogue). Cesalpino was perhaps the first great theorist in botany. The doctrine of metamorphosis, later expounded by Linnaeus and Goethe and through them leaving a heavy imprint on modern botany, was a part of Cesalpino’s philosophy. He was the first to describe in accurate detail the parts of flowers, seeds and fruits, and based his analytic classification on these parts. He was perhaps the first to wrestle in print with the concept of species; and his solution, like those of many modern botanists, was based on the capacity of a group to reproduce its kind’ (Introduction to the Hunt Catalogue of Botanical Books pp xxvii-xxviii, although not in the Hunt collection). Provenance: Joachim Camerarius jr (1534-1598), with signature on title (Joach. J.F. Camerario, i.e. Joachim son of Joachim [the elder] Camerarius) and extensive marginal annotations. Camerarius was a Nuremberg physician, botanist and horticulturist. He studied medicine at the University of Padua, and received his doctorate from Bologna in 1562. In Nuremberg, he developed a wide circle of botanical colleagues, corresponding with l’Écluse, Bauhin, Gesner, et al. He designed the botanic garden for the Bishop of Eichstadt, immortalised in Besler’s Hortus Eystettensis (1612). He was the author of Hortus medicus et philosophicus (Frankfurt, 1598), and important editions of Mattioli’s commentaries on Dioscorides. His marginal annotations and underlinings cover almost every page. The volume subsequently belonged to Georg Wolfgang Franz Panzer (1755-1829), a noted botanist and entomologist, according to a manuscript note by Martius on the front free endleaf. Martius’ note, which also records the Camerarius provenance, goes on to state that the volume was purchased from the sale of his library by the great botanical explorer of Brazil, Carl Friedrich Philipp von Martius (1794-1868). His voyage to Brazil with Johann Baptist von Spix resulted in the three-volume Nova genera et species plantarum brasiliensium (1823-1832) and the Historia naturalis palmarum (1823-1850), the most beautiful work on palm trees ever published. Besides the inscription, there is a printed ‘ex libris’ of Martius on the front pastedown.
