CARVAJAL, BERNARDINO DE (1456-1523). In commemoratione Victoriae Bacensis Civitatis apud sanctum Iacobum Hispanorum de urbe: Sermo ad Senatum Cardinalium habitus die dominica. x . Ianuraii . Mcccxc. Rome: Stephan Plannck, c. 1493. A sermon given on the 10th of January, 1490 in Rome by the Spanish Cardinal Bernardino Lopez de Carvajal y Sande before a gathering of Cardinals, commemorating the Spanish victory over the Moors at the Siege of Baza (1489), one of the last battles of the Reconquista. Shortly after the fall of Baza, the Kingdom of Granada fell to the Spanish forces, and the Moors were forced to retreat completely from the Iberian peninsula, which they had occupied continuously in one place or another since 711 A.D. The obvious importance of this event to Christendom hardly needs to be emphasized, and the military feats of King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella are celebrated in this sermon, as well as the historical importance of this final blow to Muslim forces in Europe. Queen Isabella, after hearing of the drooping morale of the Spanish troops during the prolonged siege of Baza, decided to personally visit the soldiers on November 7, 1489 - a visit which has become the stuff of songs and poetry. An interesting side note concerns how this visit changed the rules for the game of chess. Prior to Queen Isabella's visit, the piece next to the King in chess only had limited movement. In homage to Queen Isabella's brave intervention, however, the rule was changed to allow the Queen piece broad movement - a change that was excitedly welcomed by chess players, and permanently … [Click Below for Full Description]

Abu Ma'shar Ja'far ibn Muhammad ibn 'Umar al-Balkhi (Albumasar).
[Possibly Iraq], Thursday, 6th Shawwal 860 H [1456 CE]. 4to (150 x 207 mm). Arabic manuscript in black ink on paper. 384 pages numbered in pencil, containing 4 discrete texts and a section of fragments, the first 2 in the same hand, the later texts in a variety of hands, all apparently contemporary. Bound in contemporary goatskin decoratively blind-ruled with repeating interstitial floral devices, later decorative cloth tie. Frequent tables and occult symbols; full-page diagrams to pp. 321-333; frequent framed headings. 8 later (19th or early 20th century) leaves laid in at front and rear. A fascinating 15th-century Arabic manuscript compendium of astrological and occult texts, including a notably early and dated copy of the Kitab mawalid al-nisa' wa'l-rijal, a treatise on natal astrology attributed to the great astrologer Abu Ma'shar (786-886, known in the West as Albumasar). It is divided into 24 sections, giving a systematic account of each of the twelve constellations, their interactions with other celestial bodies, and the effect on the characteristics and prospects of men and women born under each sign. - Abu Ma'shar was born in Balkh (modern-day Afghanistan) and travelled to Baghdad during the caliphate of al-Ma'mum (813-33), where he became the main rival of al-Kindi, known as the father of Arab philosophy, though principally he "devoted himself to the account and justification of astrology . He drew together into one great synthesis many ancient traditions Indian, Greek, and Iranian. The Greek influence consisted of the teachings of Plato, Aristotle, Ptolemy, and T … [Click Below for Full Description]

MÜLLER, Johannes.
FIRST EDITION. This book contains further studies on specific nerve energies, following on from his Zur vergleichenden Physiologie des Gesichtssinnes des Menschen und der Thiere published earlier in the same year. In it Müller showed that the sensory system of the eye not only reacts to external optical stimuli but also can be excited by interior stimuli arising from organic malfunction, lingering mental images, or the play of the imagination. When the stimulus is mistakenly assumed to have originated outside the body, the result -- depending on the situation -- is the reporting of religious or magical visions, or the seeing of ghosts. The observations on hallucinations, clairvoyance, and dreams, which form the second and third parts of this work, are of importance for the history of psychiatry.G&M 1456. Grolier, 100 Books Famous in Science, 76. See Fulton, Selected Readings in the History of Physiology, pp. 289-291 (according to Fulton, Müller?s law was first stated in the present book). Rothschuh, Geschichte der Physiologie, p. 115. Norman catalogue 1567.8vo, pp. x, 117. Some foxing and light browning. Twentieth century half calf, uncut, original green upper wrapper bearing the book label of Edgar Goldschmid (1881-1957), bibliographer of pathology, bound in.

Extremely rare complete set of the volumes, including the supplementary atlas volume, published by the <i>Magnetischer Verein</i>, "a society organized by Gauss and Weber which united a worldwide network of magnetic observatories and established an important precedent for international scientific cooperation" (Norman). We are not aware of any other complete set having appeared on the market, and there is no complete copy in auction records. The sets in most major collections, such as Honeyman, Norman, and Wheeler Gift, are incomplete.<br/><br/> ❧Dibner 66; Norman 883; Wheeler-Gift 920; Honeyman 1456 (all having only the volumes of 1836-7 and the Atlas).<br/><br/> In 1828, while attending the <i>Naturforscherversammlung</i>, a three-week conference in Berlin, Gauss met Wilhelm Weber, a young German physicist who was conducting experiments with electromagnets. In April 1831 the professorship of physics at Göttingen, vacated upon the death of Tobias Mayer, Jr., was offered to Weber; and six years of collaboration and close friendship with Gauss followed. "As Gauss and Weber began their close collaboration and intimate friendship, the younger man was just half the age of the older. Gauss took a fatherly attitude. Though he shared fully in experimental work, and though Weber showed high theoretical competence and originality during the collaboration and later, the older man led on the theoretical and the younger on the experimental side" (DSB). <br/><br/> Gauss and Weber constructed a new magnetic laboratory, free of all metal that might affect magnetic forces (copper rather t … [Click Below for Full Description]
