London: Printed by T. Newcomb for S. Thomson, 1655. Quarto (17 x 11 cm.), 8, 296 pages; signatures: A-Pp4 (incorrectly numbered - skipping J & V - yet complete). Woodcut initials, and section ornaments. "Imprimatur" leaf from the Royal College of Surgeons facing title. ~ FIRST EDITION. A classic work on diet and nutrition, discussing the quality, use, and preparation of fish, fruit, dairy products, bread, meat, and the preparation of drinks. Health's Improvement was written in the last decade of the 16th century but remained as manuscript notes until publication in 1655 "by T. Newcomb for S. Thomson". "Mouffet, a successful Elizabethan physician with paracelsian leanings, left a number of unfinished manuscripts at his death in 1604, among them one entitled Health's Improvement... which was edited in 1655 by his younger colleague Christopher Bennet" (Robb-Smith, "Doctors at Table" cited in Maclean). Bennet died in 1655, and it is unclear if he lived to see this finished book, though he clearly thought highly of Moffett's work, as he states in his preface, "I may safely say, upon this subject I know of none that hath done better; and were Platina, Apicius, and Alexandrinus, with all the rest of the Dietetick writers now alive, they would certainly own, and highly value this Discourse" (page [2]). Moffet, whose name is variously spelled (see Maclean), is famous for two books - this one, and his book on insects, Insectorum Sive Minimorum Animalium (London, 1634). He is also known as the father of "Little Miss Muffet" of nursery rhyme fame. ~ Rebound in full brown calf, with raised bands, ruled boards, gilt titling to spine and blind dentelles. Some rubbing to hinges. With the bookplate of the Craig Collection; bookseller ticket of Myers & Co., London to front pastedown. Early ownership signature, "John Firth", to title page. While readily found in institutional holdings, this is rare in the marketplace. [OCLC records forty-three copies; Wing M2382; ESTC R202888: forty-two copies; Cagle 879; Craig 63; Notaker 539; Oxford, page 27; Pennell, page 133; Schraemli I 361; Simon BG 1063; Vicaire 613].

Amsterdam: De Spieghel, 1927. Portfolio (29 x 21cm), [48] pages, with twenty one hand-colored plates, all on a sturdy, thick card stock . FIRST EDITION, limited & signed, Roman numeral III of seven copies in portfolio form, signed by Bodenheim. There was also a state with 100 copies, in book form, bound in a Japanese style and printed on Japon Van Gelder. Rhymes by Lizzy Ansingh, with drawings by Nelly Bodenheim of anthropomorphic fruits, nuts and vegetables, including lemons, grapes, pears, radishes, red pepper, almonds, blackberries, apricots, cherries and leeks. The vignette on the folio and many of the plates appear not printed at all but rather were entirely done by hand. The illustrations are rich in color and originality, with a naive style and an accessible, wry humor. Bodenheim was a popular book illustrator in the Netherlands in the early twentieth century and she and Ansingh teamed up on numerous projects. Plates well preserved and clean.

Child writes to a Mrs. Fairbanks: "What a nice hour we spent with you the other afternoon. I only wish it could be repeated, as I would love to hear more about Thomas Wolfe and all you know about him. It would also be fascinating for me to hear much much more about your culinary experiences. Mrs. de Santillana [Child's editor] says you are the best cooks she knows, and I can well believe it from the interest you take. It is indeed a fascinating subject and a beau métier.

Small quarto (19.5 x 14 cm.), [7], 8-72 pages, five plates engraved on copper, one folding. ~ FIRST FRENCH LANGUAGE EDITION and FIRST SEPARATE EDITION. The first book on individual heating using stoves. A rare work on improvements in fireplaces and stoves, featuring five plates of ornate examples. It was published by the copper engraver and publisher Jean Theodore de Bry (1561-1623), born in Strasbourg, who settled in Oppenheim in 1609. The text was published by the same publisher the previous year in German as part of a larger work by the author and titled Holzsparkunst. Franz Keslar or Kessler (circa 1580 - circa 1630) a painter from Frankfurt, describes several models of heating previously unrecorded in France. Keslar's innovation was a response to the dwindling supply of wood for heating and cooking throughout the Continent, promoting a transition from the use of hearths to the more efficient… Read More

Sheet A/R should have had R1 and R2 as A7 and A8. It was wrongly imposed so that A5r and A6v were perfected by pages of R and vice versa. The error was corrected by pasting leaves from half another copy of the sheet over the erroneous pages. Sheet I was similarly mis-imposed, but instead of using parts of a complete sheet, a half-forme was printed on one side only and pasted over I5v, 6r, 7v, 8r.
