1570 Paracelsus Occult Medicine Alchemy Astrology MAGIC Toxites RARE BINDINGTheophrasti Bombastus, or Paracelsus, was an important Renaissance physician, alchemist, and occult astrologist. He is remembered for his modern approach to medical thought, differing from that of great thinkers like Aristotle. However, his approaches to medicine were not considered effective or 'true' medicine. Paraclesus detailed the use of magic and the zodiac as the secret to his disease cures. He even included instances of necromancy and witchcraft as remedies to certain ailments.This extremely rare 16th-century printing of the occult works of Paracelsus was edited and supplemented by Michael Toxites, a notable metaphysician and alchemist. Toxites was known for his alchemical works, most of which were on the writings of Paracelsus. Notable works included in this tome are"De tinctura physicorum""De occulta philosophia"The decorative binding on this 1570 edition is also quite impressive.

1799 Mungo Park Travels in AFRICA Mandingo Slaves Cannibalism Voyages Hunts Mungo Park was an 18th-century Scottish explorer who was well-known for his voyages in West Africa and the Niger River Basin. The reports and accounts of this voyage are still quite popular today amongst game hunters and navigation enthusiasts. The origin of this voyage came when Park sought to discover the source of the Niger River, a goal that Daniel Houghton had originally set out to find. On his journey, Park encountered a group of Mandinka slaves – an encounter that inspired the work 'Travels in the Interior Districts of Africa'. These slaves assumed Park and his men were cannibals and, like slave traders before them, were there to enslave, sell, and consume them. This book set the standard for future travels writers to follow and was important for providing Western Europeans with a view of life in Central Africa. According to the Printing of the Mind and Man, "Until the publication of Park's [first] book in 1799 hardly anyt ... Read more

1803 1st ed Robert Percival Voyages CEYLON Dutch Torture MAPS 2v SET Sri Lanka Robert Percival was an 18th-century Irish army officer who is best known for his extensive voyage to the Island of Ceylon, or Sri Lanka. This voyage, which began in 1797, was an important voyage as it brought new discoveries to Great Britain prior to Britain's rule of the island. Percival specifically outlined manners and customs of locals, as well as climate and natural science discoveries. According to the DNB on this work, Percival "notices the effects of the Portuguese and Dutch rule, which looked as if it tried to counteract as much as possible the natural advantages of the island. He gives various instances of Dutch cruelty and treachery, and attempts to characterize three classes of 'natives' – the Cingalese, the Candians, and the Malays. The pearl fishery, the town and forts of Columbo, the salt works of the island, the staple commodity of cinnamon, above all, the inland capital of Candy, are noticed in other chapters. ... Read more

1822 Greek Literature Phaedrus Fables Aesop Stoic Philosophy Morality Delphini "Things are not always what they seem; the first appearance deceives many; the intelligence of a few perceives what has been carefully hidden." – Phaedrus Phaedrus was a 1st-century fabulist and Roman poet known for his five books of verse fables. Many of his tales are adaptions of Aesop's famous tales, but he does include his own new stories as well. One major difference between Aesop and Phaedrus, however, is Phaedrus's treatment of the moral. Phaedrus emphasized the moral of the story much more than Aesop did. This edition is the collected works of Phaedrus from the series 'Scriptores latini in usum Delphini.'

1800 TRUE 1st ed Pigafetta on MAGELLAN Italian Voyages Exploration Amoretti Map First edition of the first complete account of Magellan! Antonio Pigfetta was a 16th-century Italian explorer who famously accompanied Ferdinand Magellan on his expedition to the Spice Islands. During this voyage, Pigfetta kept a detailed journal of the events as well as first-hand accounts of the Cebuano language. This journal is the primary source for much of what is known today about Magellan and the first circumnavigation of the world. Curiously though, this journal was written in a combination of broken Venetian, Spanish, and Italian was first translated into Italian in Milan in 1800 by Carlo Amoretti. This 1800 first edition is extremely valuable and desirable – a rare account of perhaps the most important expedition of the 16th-century. Prior to this edition, editors collected translations from various places and pieced together insufficient and "unsatisfactory" editions, according to Ebert. This work includes charming ...

1598 Pindar Ancient Greek Victory Odes Olympic Games Mythology Epinikion Greece Pindar was a 5th-century BC Ancient Greek poet who is remembered for his poetic odes. These odes were written in honor of victors and champions of athletic games and contests. He grouped these odes into four distinct groups of games – Olympian, Pythian, Nemean, and Isthmian Games. These odes praised footraces, chariot-races, wrestling matches, horse-races, and even flute-playing. Each of these odes begins with some sort of homage to a Greek god or Muse and then aligns the athletic champion with a mythological god or hero – quite the praise! This late 16th-century printing was edited by Henri Estienne and published in Lyon in 1598 by Pillehote. Henri Estienne, also known as Stephanus, was notable for his editions in Greek and Latin parallel translations – much like this printing.
