Item Description: ReInk Books, 2017. Softcover. Book Condition: NEW. Reprinted from 1650 edition. Volume: v.4 (1650) Language: lat. 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: Francofurti ad Moenum : Impensis haeredum Math: Meriani 332 pages Volume: v.4 (1650). Bookseller Inventory # 453418821

Item Description: Amstelodami (Amsterdam), Johannes Jacobi Schipperi, 1657. Folio. Bound in one later (ca. 1800) hcalf w. marbled boards, uncut. Back w. six raised bands and coloured title-labels. Hinges, capitals and corners w. traces of use. First 12 leaves of "De Piscibus" w. repair to lower margin (ca. 4 x 10 cm. and decreasing) w. waterstaining around it, neither repair nor waterstaining affecting text or illustrations. Otherwise internally nice and clean. Engr. t-p. and 48 engr. plates (most of them depicting between 7 and 20 animals that live in water), 5, (3), 160 pp. (De Piscibus) + woodcut title-vignette and 20 engr. plates (most of them depicting between 10 and 20 shell-fish etc.), 58, (2) pp. Second edition of both works. The "Exanguibus Aquaticis" is in accordance with Nissen's description of the second edition (Nissen 2134), the second edition of the "De Piscibus", however, is described in Nissen without year and as containing 47 plates, as the first edition, whereas this copy has 48 plates (all numbered), place and printer are the same. The first editions were both printed in Frankfurt in 1650. Johnston (1603 - 1675) was born in Poland and of Scottish descend, he was primarily a medic and natural historian. His works are usually seen as compilations of information with no personal judgment accompanying it. None the less his works of natural history were of great importance to the growing interest in this field of the time. "For example four of his dictionary-style works on fish, birds, quadrupeds, and insects -published between 1650 and 1653 with excellent illustrations- were widely read and translated" (D.S.B. VII:164). Though he relied a lot on the writings of others (e.g. those of Aldrovandi), his works became of great importance, first of all because of their new educational approach, but they were also of paramount importance to the development of natural history in Japan. The first collected edition in Dutch of the Historia Naturalis published at Amsterdam in 1660, was presented as a gift to the Japanese ruler Shogun Yoshimune. It was the only source of knowledge of western natural history in Japan, until in 1750. "Jonston's writings were a useful contribution to seventeenth-century thought, although he was not in the forefront of changing concepts of the time." (D.S.B. VII:165).These two works are the separate volumes three and four of Johnston's six-volume work "Historia Naturalis". All the beautifully executed plates are by Merian, who printed the first edition. Wood mentions this 1657-edition as the "editio princeps" (Wood p. 409). Nissen 2133 + 2134. Bookseller Inventory # 28192

Item Description: J. J. Schipper 1657 & 1665, Amsterdam, 1657. Hardcover. Second Edition. Folio (9-1/2" x 15") masterfully bound in recent full vellum lettered in brown on the spine with new endpapers. Six parts in one, four with an engraved title page and two with woodcut title vignettes: DE QUADRUPEDIBUS (1657), [3]-6, [2], 163, [1] pages; DE PISCIBUS ET CETIS (1657), [1]-5, [3], 160 pages; DE EXANGUIBUS AQUATICIS (1665), 58, [2] pages; DE AVIBUS (1657), [12], 160 pages; DE INSECTIS (1657), [8], 147, [1] pages; DE SERPENTIBUS (1665), 37, [1] pages. Jonston's complete and comprehensive compilation of the animal kingdom lavishly illustrated with hundreds of engraved figures, many fanciful or imaginary, many the work of the great German artist Matthew Merian. This copy with 243 of 250 plates (249 called for), most with several figures each, including 79 of 80 in the Quadrupedibus section (lacking plate 49); 48 of 47 in the Piscibus et cetis section (includes one plate not recorded in Nissen: plate 48 with images of a narwhal, containing details of its skull and horn); 19 of 20 in the Exanguibus aquaticis section (lacking plate 3); 57 of 62 in the Avibus section (lacking plates 11, 13, 29, 30, and 34); 28 of 28 in the Insectis section; and 12 of 12 in the Serpentibus et Draconibus section. Anker 235; Graesse III, 477; Nissen ZBI 2131, 2133, 2134; 2132, and 2135; Wood, page 409. An important and wonderfully illustrated work on natural history with great influence well into the 18th century. Jonston was a physician of Scottish decent, born on the Continent, where he spent the better part of his life. Jonston practiced other occupations in addition to being a physician, and in 1650 he published the first version of his zoology. Jonston is now seen chiefly as a "learned compiler" and his sources for the present work were wide ranging, but probably the main influence was Ulisse Aldrovandi (1522-1605). In addition to the technical merits of this book, Jonston also had a good imagination, as some of the creatures illustrated never existed: hippos with strange features, dragons, unicorns, griffons, and animals with human faces. A book that usually suffered from much use, this copy is certainly above the average normally encountered. One plate bound upside down; small tape stains on a handful of plates; one plate with a neatly repaired tear; another plate with slight loss of image. Generally clean and crisp, handsomely bound. Near Fine. Bookseller Inventory # 016969
