        Synopsis optica, in qua illa omnia quae ad opticam, dioptricam, catoptricam pertinent, id est, ad triplicem radium visualem directum, refractum, reflexum breviter quidem, accurate tamen demonstrantur.Lyon: Horace Boissat & Georges Remeus, 1667.

      First edition of Fabri's great work on optics which was the inspiration for Newton's work on light and colours as it was through this work that Newton learned of Grimaldi's discovery of the diffraction of light.<br/><br/> Fabri describes the rings of Saturn (he was involved in a long dispute with Huygens over their interpretation), difficulties of telescopic observations, and the construction of compound microscopes. He presents a theory of the blueness of the sky based on the principle of dispersion. There is also a careful exposition of theories of vision and the mechanics of the eye. <br/><br/> Fabri (1606-88), "mathematician and physicist, was born near Belley, France, educated at the Collège de la Trinité in Lyon, and ordained a Jesuit priest in 1635. He taught metaphysics, astronomy, mathematics, and natural philosophy at the Collège from 1640 until 1646, when he went to Rome, remaining there for the rest of his life. Fabri engaged in research and controversy on a wide range of scientific issues, including heliocentrism, the explanation of tides, and the circulation of the blood (he discovered the latter, independently of, and later than, Harvey, in about 1636); his writings on light and colors contributed to the science of optics" (Albert et al, Source Book in Ophthalmology, p. 100). <br/><br/> De Vitry 379; Macclesfield 754 (not in Honeyman, Horblit or Norman); Albert et al 709; Goldsmith F45; Jesuit Science in the Age of Galileo 12; Sommervogel III 515; Vagnetti EIIIb58; Wellcome III, p.3.. 4to: 223 x 156 mm. Pp. [8], 246, with 6 folding engraved plates, woodcut vignette on title and woodcut diagrams in text. Title page with old inscription washed out. Contemporary calf, corners and spine with some professional leather restoration, in all a very good copy

      Heidelberg, Durch Johan Lancellot. In verlegung Andreæ Cambier, 1606. Folio. Beautiful recent full morocco in old style w. five raised bands on back, creating six compartments, which are richly gilt. Blindtooled borders and centrepieces on boards. Text evenly browned and margins brownspotted. T-p. in red and black. Woodcut vignette (mythical animal) on t-p., 149 woodcut illustrations of four-footed animals. (4), 172 ff (= 352 pp).. Rare third German edition of this zoologically very important work by the famous Swiss botanist, zoologist, physician and philologist, Konrad Gesner (1516 - 1565). This is the abridged German translation, carried out by Forer (Forrer) with the help of Johannes Herold, of the two first parts of Gesner's immense work, originally written in Latin, the "Historia Animalium". This edition is the first "Verbesserte" of the German editions. In all three German editions appeared, and this is the only one carrying the subtitle "Aussführliche Beschreibung und lebendige..." ("elaborate and vivid...") instead of "Kurze beschreybung..." ("short description"). The first of the German translations is from 1563 and the second from 1600. The first German translation appeared in the lifetime of Gesner, and he corresponded with the translator, the physician Forer, who, in spite of this, contributed with sections not found in Gesner's original work.All contemporary editions if this work are rare.Conrad Gesner is the man who replaces zoology as it was understood in the Middle Ages with what we mean with zoology today. He is one of the first to focus on the animals themselves, and is thus of great importance to modern day zoology.Gesner was a very gifted philologist and was appointed first occupant of the chair of Greek (1537 - 1540) at the then new Lausanne Academy. He later became chief physician in Zürich, where he elevated to CANONICUS. He travelled very frequently and on his journeys made important botanical and zoological observations. He was later to become one of the absolutely most important botanists and zoologists of the Renaissance, not least due to his ability to organize and categorize matters not previously systematized."... even Georges Cuvier later delighted in recognizing its (his zoological work) enduring interest. The attempt of the treatise to regroup animals recalls the principal themes that Gesner defended in proposing classification of the vegetable kingdom according to flowering and nonflowering plants, vascular and nonvascular plants, and so on." (D.S.B. V:379).Because of its seminal character, HISTORIA ANIMALIUM received immediate recognition and Gesner is now by many considered the founder of veterinary science, as well as being the first to sketch fossils and the first to establish a botanical garden. The interesting illustrations from this work have been used ever since as a direct source for several artists. "His great zoological work, HISTORIA ANIMALIUM... is the starting-point of modern zoology." (EB 10: 316). Nissen ZBI 1552
