A Paris, De L'Imprimerie de Christophe Lambin ruë petit Pont, à l'Image sainct Martin, 1669. (At the end: 'acheué d'imprimer le 18. Decembre 1668.'). 4to. Copy issued without the portrait. W. woodc. vign. on tile, woodc. floral initials. Contemp. full polished clf., spine and covers gilt tooled, covers w. gilt arabesque supralibros. (Spine ends, lower edges and corners some rubbing, 1 corner dam.; binding 3 or 4 small single wormh.(VIII, 152, II (blank) pp.). (Lower blank margin 1 or 2 tiny wormh.). (Old owner's inscr. in ink on title page 'de centrigtizey'?). Second enlarged edition (by appr. 40 pages), more interesting than the first because of the survey of prices of pearls and diamonds in chs. XVII and XVIII (pp. 130 - 138), and the "Suite du chapitre de la perle" (pp. 74 - 90) dealing with South America. Moreover there's a chapter "Contre les chercheurs de la pierre philosophale et souffleurs d'Arquemie" [sic].: Sinkankas, vol. I, 593: second enlarged edition. 'Robert de Berquen, goldsmith of Paris; Biogr. Univ., 4, p. 536 states that he is the son of the so-called "inventor" of diamond bruting & polishing in Europe, namely Louis de Berquen... Very early and important treatise on gemstones, gold & silver, but with far more space devoted to gemstones. The first chapter attempts to reconcile differing views of various writers, as cited by Berquen, on the origin of gemstones and precious metals, with following chapters taking up the principal gemstones, and some minor ones, as diamond, sapphire, topaz, ruby, spinel, emerald ... [the second edition] Entirely reset, with additions to some chapters ...The chapter on pearl is augmented with an appendix which recounts the history of Spanish conquest in the New World and additionally gives remarks on pearl fisheries, natural history, and production. ... The chapter on gold and other metals, is also enlarged, pp. 111 - 120, by remarks on the merits of gold and other metals, and by the comments of the celebrated alchemist Nicolas Flamel (d. 1418) on the philosopher's stone and alchemical attempts to transmute metals ... New chapters compromise Ch 17, on the pricing of diamonds according to size and quantity, and Ch 18 on pricing of pearls. In terms of substance, this edition is considerably superior to the first [1661]; both are rare.': Sabin, 4957: Brunet VI (Table), item 4780: John Carter Brown libr.

DSB II, 59-63: G&M944: 'The greatest work in the history of altitude physiology, in which Bert proved that the principal symptoms of altitude sickness arise from reduced partial pressure of oxygen and nor from diminution of of total pressure. Bert introduced oxygen apparatus to avert the dangerous consequences of ascent to high altitudes, and was the first to study the conditions of high-altitude ascents in a pressure chamber. He also explained the aetiology and mechanism of caisson disease.': Norman collection 218:'Bert settled a controversy by proving experimentally that high-altitude sickness was caused by the diminution of oxygen pressure and not by the reduction of barometric pressure per se; this was the first application of Dalton's law of partial pressure to human respiration. Bert designed and constructed the first pressure chamber ... This work also contains the earliest history of altitude physiology.': Grollier, medicine, 77:Dr. Dennis Jourdanet, 'a wealthy patron of the arts and sciences who had experienced mountain sickness while travelling in Mexico' and Paul Bert met in 1869 and it turned out they were both interested in altitude physiology. Jourdanet subsidized Bert's experiments. 'Bert's book, considered to be the classic work in altitude physiology, describes his 670 experiments ... It is organized in 3 parts: (1) Review of the history of altitude physiology; (2) experimental protocols; and (3) summary and conclusions.': En Français dans le texte, 305: Norman Sale III, 1145: Hoff-Fulton, 227: Robinson 18/19: 'Bert ran an experiment on himself in one of the big chambers, lowering the pressure to 550 mm (8500 feet) in 33 minutes.': Rare First Edition.

(XII, 223, IV (errata and poem), I (blank) pp.). (Bookplate upper paste down 'Whitewood Rupert Hughes'.). A very good copy of this "erotico-satyrical treatsie on virginity" [annotation Kuyper 39, 3429]. NNBW vol. VII, p. 126 - 127: Van der Aa, B., p. 151: First edition of his first work. Beverland was a lawyer and a rich and extremely gifted man of letters, but due to his writings gained a bad reputation and fled to England. His 'Peccatum originale' (1678, reprinted under his own name in 1679) posed that man's original fall from grace solely originated from Adam and Eve's ''conversatio carnalis". Beverland was forced to retract these views and was fined 100 silver dukatons. Beverland did not mend his ways.: Brunet vol. I, p. 837: Graesse vol. I, p. 357: Ebert, 2076: Gay-Lemmonier vol. I, 819: Bilderlexicon vol. III, 126: '... gelehrten Obszönitäten, schlüpfrigen Büchern und wollüstigen Bildern.': Beverland was famous for his libertinism, which caused him lots of trouble.
