Item Description: Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Strasbourg, chez Amand König, 1770. First Edition. Quarto (217 x 182), pp. 4, 18, 18, 2, 228, 228, 229-252, 3, with 4 folded engraved plates (Engelmann, 1846). Contemporary attractive full mottled calf. Spine with 5 raised bands. Gilt lettering. Second compartment reads: Goüan Histor Des Poissons. Other compartments with elaborately gilt decorations. All edges red. Binding slightly rubbed. Internally renewed with contemporary pastedowns front and endpapers. Illustrations from Goúan and engraved by Weiss. Goüan, a professor of botany at Montpellier, was one of the first proponents in France of Linnaeus' methods and nomenclature. As a strict follower of the Linnaean school he only paid attention to exterior characters. For example he seriously maitained that these animals possessed neither an internal nor an external ear. We should note , however, that the anatomy he gives includes a myology rather new for the time (Pietsch, 1995). His Historia Piscium, which is in Latin and in French, printed on opposite pages with separate numbering, was probably intended only as an introduction to a true general natural history of these animals.

De Historia Piscium libri quatuor, jussu &: WILLUGHBY, Francis

Item Description: Hardcover. Book Condition: Good. Londini, C. Davis, 1743. including an additional engraved title page dated 1685 and signed "Paul van Somer" showing a miraculous catch of fish, fishermen holding a dragnet, a herald announcing the arrival of fresh fish and Pallas Athene drawing a cod, A reissue of the 1686 edition, The Royal Society authorised this re-issue in 1740 (published in 1743). 187 full-page engraved plates with a title-page dated 1743 and the addition of a 12 pp. index by C. Mortimer. Folio (377 x 235 mm), pp. 8, 344, 32, 12, 12. Engraved head-pieces. Contemporary calf, gilt rules consisting of flower motifs on both covers, spine with raised bands and compartments with black armorial tooling (old rebacking), red gilt-lettered label, outer turn-ins and all edges gilt. Contemporary unobtrusive scholarly pencil annotations to text and plates, joints and corners slightly rubbed. Some of the plates bear contemporary letterpress cancel slips over their captions. A well preserved and attractive copy. A letter signed by John Van Voorst was found inside the copy. The Historia Piscium, although it bears only Willughby's name (1635-1672) on the title page, is in large part the work of John Ray (1627-1705). Both scholars had gathered the principal materials for their book on a journey to France, Germany and Italy from 1663 to 1666. Willughby described and dissected all sampled fish and Ray arranged them under classes and families. As for species, the authors assembled not only those that they described from nature, amounting to 178, but also those (including the drawings) of Rondelet, Belon, Salviani, Gessner, Collaert, Piso, van Schonevelde (von Schoenfeld) and others, whose descriptions they interpolated with their own. The total number came to 420. But Willughby and Ray occasionally failed to recognize that some species were identical to others taken from the preceding works, so there is some duplication (Pietsch, 1995). New illustrations to their work are marked with a dagger. The text of the first edition was printed at the expense of Bishop John Fell, while the plates were financed by several members of the Royal Society, particularly by the Society's president Samuel Pepys to whom the work is dedicated. Each plate bears the name of the donor. Nissen, Schöne Fischbücher, 1951, 130. Bookseller Inventory # 205061

Rerum naturalium historia, nempe Quadrupedum Insectorum Piscium: BUONANNI, F.

Item Description: Roma, Zempelliano, 1773. Folio (380 x 255mm). pp. xl, 260, with 1 fine engraved allegorical frontispiece, 1 engraved title vignette showing a cabinet and 2 scientists with a magnifying glass, 10 engraved vignettes in the text and 51 engraved plates. Contemporary half calf, gilt ornamented and lettered spine in 5 compartments, marbled sides. "Very scarce. Revised and edited by Giuseppe-Antonio Battarra. Kircher, the great German Jesuit scholar, had formed during his life a magnificent collection of antiquities and natural history specimens. When he died in 1680, the collection was bequeathed to the Collegio Romano. Although Buonanni published a one volume account of the collection in 1709, this much enlarged work is the definitive edition. The volumes cover mainly zoology, paleontology, and conchology, and are superbly illustrated. It is one of the most important accounts of a seventeenth century scientific cabinet. Volume 1 divides the text into classes of (1) quadrupeds, (2) reptiles and insects, (3) fossils, minerals and stones, (4) fish and sea creatures, and (5) apparatus. Pages 94-152 describe the mineralogical specimens, including gold, silver, copper, iron, lead, tin, mercury, antimony, magnets, marcasite, salt, sulfur, amber, dendrites, fossils, the Philosopher's stone, etc. Some of these are illustrated on plates XXXV-XXXVI" (C. Schuh, Bibliography of Mineralogy). Volume 2, not present here, deals almost exclusively with shell and bivalve descriptions. A few leaves with some worming at the lower margin. A very fine copy.B.M.(N.H.), 287; Nissen ZBI, 2199. Bookseller Inventory # 9445

De historia Piscium libri quatuor, jussu &: WILLUGHBY, F.

Item Description: Oxonii, e Theatro Sheldoniano, 1686. Folio (367 x 245mm). With 1 engraved frontispiece, 1 engraved title-vignette and 187 engraved plates. Contemporary blind pressed vellum, small split on upper cover hinge. A fine copy of the rare first edition of the first large work on fishes in England, marking a new era in ichthyology. Although Ray states with his characteristic modesty to be only the editor of the manuscript of his deceased friend Willughby (1635-1672), his share in compiling the material for the work should not be neglected. The text was printed at the expense of bishop John Fell (founder of the University Press), the plates engraved by Paul van Somers under the supervision of Martin Lister at the expense of several members of the Royal Society of London, among them particularly the Society's president Samuel Pepys to whom the work is dedicated.Provenance: Armorial bookplate of Falkenhof.Dean III, 331; Keynes 46; Nissen, 'Schöne Fischbücher', 130.

Rerum naturalium historia nempe quadrupedum insectorum piscium: KIRCHER, Athanasius] BUONANNI,

Item Description: Rome, in Typographio Zempelliano, 1773-1782, 1773. 2 vols, folio (410 x 270 mm), I: pp [xl] 260, title in red and black with engraved vignette, engraved frontispiece, several engraved initials and vignettes in text, and 51 engraved plates; II: xxvii [including engraved dedication leaf] [1, blank] 348, title in red and black with engraved vignette, and 13 engraved initials and vignettes in text, and 59 engraved plates (110 in total in the two volumes, not including the frontispiece and engraved dedication); some occasional marginal spotting, overall a very fresh, uncut copy in contemporary sheep-backed marbled boards, spines a little worn.First edition, but based upon Buonanni's Museum Kircherianum (Rome, 1709), of which it is both a revision and expansion. The first volume, devoted to quadrupeds, reptiles, insects, fish, exotic plants, and fossils, comprises the first publication of the natural history collection (apart from the shells). It was edited by Giovanni Antonio Battarra (1714-1789), Italian botanist and mycologist. He added extensive annotations and new descriptions, provided a new classification system, and also added new illustrations.The second volume is devoted to shells, and is an expansion of Buonanni's earlier work; It includes a catalogue of the shell collection of Peter Paul Scali, and includes additional plates to Buonanni's 48 conchological plates from the 1709 edition.Buonanni presented the first detailed and illustrated catalogue of Kircher's 'museum' or Wunderkammer in the Jesuit Collegio Romano. Kircher built upon the collection already assembled in the college by Alfonso Donnino, and utilised the network of Jesuit missionaries to provide new specimens of natural history wonders and ethnographic and archaeological material. He also collected scientific instruments. Some of the highlights were his Egyptian antiquities, including two authentic mummies, a collection of exotic shoes, and the first cuneiform tablet recorded in Europe. Buonanni, Kircher's pupil and successor at the Collegio Romano, gives a detailed account of the objects and the genesis of the museum. As a conchologist himself, he devotes forty-eight plates to illustrating 412 specimens of shells, and as Dance notes, these are better drawn than the figures in his own earlier work, the Recreatione dell' occhio (1681). Buonanni also devotes a section to microscopes and microscopic views.'Buonanni's catalogue gives us a good idea of what the museum contained at this time. It is a magnificent production and it makes clear why scientific visitors continued to come to see Kircher's collection' (Reilly, Studia Kircheriana I. p. 151 et seq. ).'Although Buonanni published a one volume account of the collection in 1709, this much enlarged work is the definitive edition. The volumes cover mainly zoology, paleontology, and conchology, and are superbly illustrated. It is one of the most important accounts of a seventeenth century scientific cabinet.'Volume 1 divides the text into classes of (1) quadrapeds, (2) reptiles and insects, (3) fossils, minerals and stones,(4) fish and sea creatures, and (5) apparatus. Pages 94-152 describe the mineralogical specimens, including gold,silver, copper, iron, lead, tin, mercury, antimony, magnets, marcasite, salt, sulfur, amber, dendrites, fossils, thePhilosopher's stone, etc. Some of these are illustrated on plates XXXV-XXXVI. Volume 2 deals almost exclusively with shell and bivalve descriptions' (Schuh, Biobibliography of Mineralogy (The Mineralogical Record, online).The plates are unsigned, but the title vignettes are by 'Antonio Nessi' and engraved by 'Francesco Nesi'. The latter was responsible for some of the head- and tailpieces as well, although other signatures occur and some are unsigned.Nissen ZBI 2199 (under Kircher); Murray III p 134.
