New digital facsimile (in PDF format on CD-ROM) of one of the most important books in the history of science.

In this rare folio, vividly rendered drawings sharply revealed Hooke's exciting findings to the wondering public.

Ford and detailed bibliographical information. "Anyone who has wanted to own a rare book or a pioneering work of science will be pleased with this facsimile, which seems to make the book materialize on the computer screen."--Abbey Newsletter.

Micrographia Curiosa sive Rerum minutissimarum Observationes, quae: BUONANNI (or BONANNI),

Item Description: Added engraved title & 40 engraved plates (three are folding). 1 p.l., 106 pp., one blank leaf. Small 4to, cont. English panelled calf (corners renewed, rebacked, some dampstaining in gutter at foot to first ten leaves). Rome: A. de Rubeis, 1703. First separate edition, originally published as the second part of the author's Observationes circa viventia (1691). Our edition - which is actually the original printing of the second part with a new title-page - is very rare with only one copy located by WorldCat. Buonanni (1738-1725), one of the most learned Jesuits of his time, was a pupil of Athanasius Kircher, and succeeded his master as teacher of mathematics at the Collegium Romanum. This work is one of the earliest Italian treatises on microscopy. It contains interesting observations on early microscopes and a precise description of Buonanni's own compound microscopes, which are illustrated on two plates. The rest of the plates show objects seen through the microscope, including a number of illustrations of insects. "The quality of his illustrations of various insects was excellent - particularly those of the fly, louse, mite, flea, and mosquito. Indeed, his drawings of the Culex pipiens (common house mosquito) are the best of the seventeenth century)."-D.S.B., II, p. 591. Very good copy. Duplicate from the British Museum with their duplicate stamp dated 1787. Armorial bookplate of Sir John Ingilby Bart. (1758-1815), M.P. and Fellow of the Royal Society. ? Clay & Court, The History of the Microscope, pp. 84-86. Garrison-Morton 264-(1st ed. of 1691). Bookseller Inventory # 5444

Item Description: London: by Jo. Martyn, and Ja. Allestry, Printers to the Royal Society, and are to be sold at their Shop, 1665, 1665. Folio (300 × 192 mm). Contemporary calf, gilt arms to covers, rebacked to style with endpapers renewed. Red morocco-backed folding box. Boards rubbed, corners just worn, small repair to verso of first plate, some plates trimmed across the platemarks (as often) but without loss to the image; a very good copy. Licence leaf facing title expertly laid down on antique paper, title in red and black, 38 engraved plates (of which 15 are folding) after Hooke and Sir Christopher Wren (2 plates titled in manuscript, as the Horblit copy), woodcut headpieces and initials. With the gilt supralibros of the Society of Writers to the Signet on both covers; bookplate and library label of William Morehead. First edition, first issue, of this "early landmark in microscopy, containing the first illustration of cells [plate xi]" (Horblit). Published under the aegis of the Royal Society, Hooke's observations were the first to be carried out with an improved compound microscope, and the first to describe the microscopic structure of tissue with the term "cell". The book reproduces the almost frantic series of observations made by Hooke in 1663 and 1664 as the young scientist (he was still in his 20s) peered through the lenses of his new microscope at anything he could find. His text ranges widely, finding space for discussion of microscopic fungi, the life cycle of the mosquito, the origin of lunar craters, as well as the origin of fossils (Hooke's proposal is the first sensible one in print). There is also the discussion of light and colour which led to his bitter dispute with Newton. The extent of Hooke's investigation and the precision of his account entirely devoted to microscopical examination made Hooke's work "probably the most influential book in the entire history of microscopy" (Norman). But it is the justly famous series of plates, engraved mostly from Hooke's drawings with some probably by Sir Christopher Wren, which ultimately distinguishes the book, made it a contemporary bestseller, and kept Pepys up all night staring at it in amazement. Here are the tiny, unregarded components of everyday life – a stinging nettle, for example, a louse, or the famous flea – blown up with a startling degree of detail and exactness not to be equalled until the age of the electron microscope. This discovery of a world-within-a-world had a profound influence on contemporary perceptions of everyday reality: the disorientating effect of the new perspective is memorably captured in Swift's descriptions of Lilliput and Brobdingnag in Gulliver's Travels.
