        De motu animalium.Rome: Angeli Bernabo, 1680-81. First edition.

      A fine copy of the foundation work of biomechanics. "Pupil of Galileo and teacher of Malpighi, Borelli's lasting fame is his dominating influence in the establishment of the Iatrophysical School of thought, which sought to interpret all physiological phenomena by the laws of mathematics and physics." (<i>Heirs of Hippocrates</i>).<br/><br/> ❧Dibner 190; Horblit 13; Norman 270; Garrison-Morton 762; <i>Heirs of Hippocrates</i> 496; Lilly <i>Notable Medical Books</i> 91.<br/><br/> "Inspired by Harvey's mathematical demonstration of the circulation of the blood, Borelli, a trained mathematician and physicist, conceived of the body as a machine whose phenomena could be explained entirely by the laws of physics. Borelli was the first to recognise that bones were levers powered by the action of muscle, and devoted the first volume of his work to the external motions produced by this interaction, with extensive calculations on the motor forces of muscles. The second volume treats of internal motions, such as the movements of muscles themselves, circulation, respiration, secretion, and nervous activity" (Norman). "Borelli originated the neurogenic theory of the heart's action and first suggested that the circulation resembled a simple hydraulic system. He was the first to insist that the heart beat was a simple muscular contraction" (Garrison-Morton). <br/><br/> "It is highly creditable to his insight and candour that, although he set out with the idea of explaining the movements of living organisms mechanically, he yet realised that the contraction and swelling of the muscles, on which all such movements depend, cannot be purely mechanical, but involves also complex chemical processes. He held, namely, that neural stimulation had something to do with the contraction and swelling of muscles" (Wolf, <i>History of science, technology and philosophy</i>).<br/><br/> Born in Naples, Giovanni Borelli (1608-79) studied mathematics at Rome under Benedetto Castelli. Sometime before 1640 he was appointed professor of mathematics at Messina. In the early 1640s, he met Galileo in Florence. In 1656 Borelli was appointed to the chair of mathematics at the University of Pisa, a post previously held by Galileo. It was in Pisa that Borelli met the Italian anatomist Marcello Malpighi; the two men became founder members of the short-lived <i>Accademia del Cimento</i>. Motivated by Malpighi's own studies, Borelli began his first investigations into the science of animal movement. This began an interest that would continue for the rest of his life, eventually earning him the title of the Father of Biomechanics. After returning to Messina in 1668, Borelli was forced into exile in Rome for suspected involvement in political conspiracies. Here he first became acquainted with ex-Queen Christina of Sweden, who had also been exiled to Rome for converting to Catholicism. Borelli lived the rest of his years in poverty, teaching basic mathematics at the school of the convent where he had been allowed to live. His masterwork, <i>De motu animalium</i>, on which he had worked for many years, might never have been published but in late 1679 Queen Christina agreed to bear the printing costs and Borelli dedicated the <i>De motu animalium</i> to her. He died in December, however, and his benefactor at the convent, P. Giovanni di Gesù, accepted the responsibility of seeing this last and most important work through the press. Volume I, treating of external motions, or the motions produced by the muscles, appeared in 1680. Volume II, dealing with internal motions, such as the movements of the muscles themselves, circulation, respiration, the secretion of fluids, and nervous activity, appeared in late 1681.. Two vols, 4to (216 x 160 mm), pp. [xii] 376 [11]; [iv] 520, with 18 folding engraved plates. Contemporary limp vellum, titled in ink in manuscript on spines.

        Exercitationes Duae Anatomicae De Circulatione Sanguinis Ad Joannem Riolanum filium. Rotterdam: Arnold Leers, 1649. [Bound, probably as issued, with:] Exercitatio anatomica de motu cordis & sanguinis. Ccum praefatione Zachariae Sylvii Medici Roterodamensis. Accesit Dissertatio de corde Doct. Jacobi de Back, Urbis Roterodami Medici ordinarii.Rotterdam: Arnold Leers, 1648.

      First edition of the <i>Exercitationes</i>, one of two issues published simultaneously (see below), of this rare and important work, a defence of his theory of the circulation of the blood against the Parisian physician Jean Riolan the younger. It is here bound after the first Rotterdam edition of <i>De motu cordis</i> itself, an important edition in its own right, as it contains a corrected text, with the preface by Zacharias Sylvius (1608-1664); it also contains the first edition of the substantial treatise by James de Back (1593-1657), <i>Dissertatio de corde ... Annexa Appendix pro circulatione Harveiana</i>. Keynes called the <i>Exercitationes</i> "one of [Harvey's] major contributions to medical science" (<i>Life</i>, p. 327). They were appended to later editions of <i>De motu</i>, as here; as Keynes says in his <i>Bibliography of William Harvey</i>, "The two treatises have for too long been considered merely an appendix to <i>De motu</i> - they are far more important than this." The only copy of the <i>Exercitationes</i> auctioned in the last forty years was the Haskell F. Norman copy, also bound with the Rotterdam edition of <i>De motu</i> (Christie's, June 1998, $9200, re-sold at Sotheby's PMM sale, October 1999, £6900). <br/><br/> ❧Norman 1007 & 1010.<br/><br/> <i>De motu cordis</i>, first published in 1628, "is probably the most important book in the history of medicine. What Vesalius was to anatomy, Harvey was to physiology; the whole scientific outlook on the human body was transformed, and behind almost every important medical advance in modern times lies the work of Harvey" (<i>Heirs of Hippocrates</i>). The initial reaction to <i>De motu</i> in England was negative: in <i>Brief Lives</i>, Aubrey related, 'I have heard him say, that after his book of the circulation of the Blood came out, that he fell mightily in his practice, and that 'twas believed by the vulgar that he was crack brained; and all the physicians were against his opinion, and envied him; many wrote against him.' On the Continent, however, the reaction was more favourable. As Gjersten remarks, "it was in Holland that Harvey received his earliest and most committed support" (<i>Classics of Science</i>, p. 178). Indeed, the first recognition of Harvey's theory came from the extra-university circle around Sylvius and de Back in Rotterdam. "In 1648 Jacob de Back, physician-in-ordinary to Rotterdam, published his <i>Dissertatio de corde</i>, in which he argued that the heart was not the chief organ in the motion of the blood. 'It performeth the office of a steward. The heart in the body of an animal has no rule or principality.' De Back rightly regarded this as a correction of the <i>De motu cordis</i>, which he had read about 1633. Harvey might well have read de Back's book before writing his letters to Riolan, in which he uses very similar words" (Webster (ed.), <i>The Intellectual Revolution of the Seventeenth Century</i>, p. 174). <br/><br/> "In 1649, after maintaining a twenty-one year silence against his detractors, Harvey published two essays addressed to Jean Riolan the younger, a Parisian professor of anatomy who had put forth a rival theory of the circulation in his <i>Encheiridium anatomicum</i> (1648). Harvey demolished Riolan's arguments point by point in the first essay, and in the second essay refuted Descartes, who had denied Harvey's claims about the movement of the heart" (Norman). Harvey's first essay is a reply to Riolan's <i>Encheiridium</i>, a copy of which he had presented to Harvey. In answer to Riolan's doubts about how and why the blood passes from the arteries to the veins through the body tissues, Harvey speculated that the arterial blood pressure forces the blood into the tissues, and that the action of the body's muscles then forces the blood into the smallest veins. To refute Riolan's claim that there are connecting passages, or anastomoses, that let blood flow from the arteries under certain abnormal conditions, Harvey suggested an experiment based on a traditional method of slaughtering animals which involved the opening of a large artery and letting the animal's blood drain as completely as possible. Harvey claimed that if the principal vein into the heart is tied off first, so that the blood cannot possibly enter the heart from the veins, then the animal's arteries will drain, but the veins will not. Riolan, however, could not face such vivisectional techniques; others including Primrose, Parigiano and Leichner had argued that vivisectional experiments were unnatural and produced unnatural results. <br/><br/> When Harvey concluded this 'exercise' to Riolan with a formally polite tribute to Riolan and the <i>Encheiridium</i>, and put his name at its foot, it was probably as much as he intended to write. But before he sent it to the printer he read Riolan's <i>Opuscula Anatomica Nova</i> (London, 1649), in which Riolan marshals his criticisms of Harvey at greater length and, at the same time, proposes his own new doctrine of the circulation of the blood, which he confidently asserts will leave the medicine of Galen in good repair. According to Riolan's new doctrine, the blood which has been elaborated in the liver from the chyle (the old Galenic doctrine) is carried by the vena cava directly to the heart, where it is transformed into arterial blood. From the right ventricle it passes to the left through the minute openings in the middle septum and from the left ventricle into the aorta and its branches. When it has reached the outermost parts of the limbs, it returns through the veins which anastomose with the arteries. There is circulation only in the larger canals of the aorta and the vena cava which through their smaller branches supply nutriment to all parts of the body. The venous blood in the portal vein does not circulate, but flows back and forth, having as its companion the large coeliac vessel containing arterial blood which likewise does not circulate. <br/><br/> Harvey therefore took up his pen again and wrote a second exercise to Riolan. In contrast to the first exercise, which was largely a verbal argument, the second is heavily experimental, with new experiments, and Harvey's deliberations about procedure in natural philosophy. Much of it is taken up with a history of the entire controversy over his doctrine of the circulation of the blood. Some scholars have suggested that this is based on notes he had made in 1641-1646 in response to earlier critics. "Harvey, in this second letter, seems almost to have forgotten Riolan and his tiresome quibbles. He was enjoying a temporary return to his old style of forceful statement supported by experimental, clinical and physiological experiences. It is one of his major contributions to medical science, and in the later pages he briefly recapitulated the theme of his former book <i>De motu cordis</i>. Near the end he referred to 'that very acute and ingenious man, René Descartes,' and his attempt to deny Harvey's beliefs about the movement of the heart ... In his concluding paragraph Harvey came back to Riolan, who had been so long in the background, and recommended him to try the simple experiment of ligating the portal vein, when he would find that exactly the same thing happened as when any other vein is tied - it will swell up below the ligature owing to the accumulation of blood flowing towards the liver, showing the absurdity of Riolan's idea of a backward circulation in the portal system. <br/><br/> "With this parting shot, based, as always, on direct experiment, Harvey left his opponent. If this did not convince him, he must have thought, nothing would, and indeed it never did. Riolan remained to the end of his life unable to believe the evidence of his senses" (Keynes, <i>Life</i>, pp. 327-8). <br/><br/> "This work [<i>Exercitationes</i>] was published simultaneously by Roger Daniels in Cambridge and by Arnold Leers in Rotterdam. Keynes states that the Rotterdam edition has traditionally been assumed to be printed after the Cambridge one, although he could find no evidence to support the claim. A third and last separate edition was published in Paris in 1650; after this date, the <i>Exercitationes duae</i> appeared only as an appendix to <i>De motu cordis</i>" (Norman). <br/><br/> Keynes, <i>Harvey</i> 6 & 32; <i>Life of Harvey</i>, pp. 323-328; NLM/Krivatsy 5332 & 5340; Norman 1007 & 1010.. 2 vols in one, 12mo, I pp [ii] 140 [2, errata]; II pp [xl, including engraved frontispiece] 215 [1, blank] 219 [9], with two engraved plates on pp 156-7 of the Exercitatio; some very faint waterstaining on a few gatherings, a very attractive copy in contemporary limp vellum.

        Maniement d'Armes

      1608. DE GHEYN II, Jacob. Maniement d'Armes. Three parts in one volume. Engraved title-page, 3 ff., 42 plates; 2 ff., 43 plates; 3 ff., 32 plates. Altogether 118 plates engraved by Jacob de Gheyn II. Small folio, 343 x 256 mm, bound in early nineteenth-century English polished beige calf, gilt; rebacked in the style of the period. Amsterdam: Henry Laurens, 1607 (changed in MS to "1608" as commonly). First Edition in French, printed in the same year as the first Dutch edition. Jacob de Gheyn II (1565-1629), Dutch painter and graphic designer, who is known to have influenced Rembrandt, used images in the present volume for his 1642 painting of "The Company of Frans Banning Cock Preparing to March Out" (a.k.a. The Nightwatch). De Gheyn, through his scores of prints and drawings, is credited with leading Dutch art from its decorative Mannerist style toward naturalism. At the close of the sixteenth century and the beginning of the seventeenth, a growing interest developed in military tactics and ways of using different types of weapons. This superbly illustrated manual for the exercise of military arms, dedicated to Prince Maurice of Nassau, specifically demonstrates the musket and pike drill. The original drawings were commissioned about ten years earlier by Jan van Nassau-Siegen. The manual was intended as a training guide to instruct officers on how to handle arms effectively and correctly. It showed each position for the deployment of a variety of weapons. De Gheyn's work offers a unique glimpse into warfare as waged in the Thirty Years War and even the English Civil War. The engravings are full of life and movement and include fine costume detail. The work is divided into three parts: the first set (42 plates) concerns Firelocks; the second set (43 plates) is of Muskets; and the third (32 plates) Pikemen. De Gheyn demonstrates how to load and fire, or merely carry, a matchlock piece. In addition, there are numerous detailed illustrations that show the various movements and postures to be adopted during use of the pike. Volume rebacked in the style of the period. PROVENANCE: Seventeenth-century ownership inscription on title-page "Adries Boccaert" (no doubt a member of the noble Flemish Boccaert family); Boies Penrose, with his ex-libris. Lipperheide 2058 (lacking plates 14-27 in the first set!). Hollstein, Flemish, p. 138 (wrongly recording "116 plates and title"). Brunet 10309. Cicognara 1659.

Contemporary laced-case binding of flexible vellum, pair of slits on each cover for pair of fore-edge ties (lacking ties), title lettered in ink on backstrip, a few lower edges untrimmed; pastedown endpapers detached.*** An agreeable pocket edition of the Confessions of Saint Augustine, printed in Rouen, no doubt aiming at the English Catholic market. The Confessions were a ?"recusant favourite?" (Westminster Dictionary of Christian Spirituality, 1983, p. 85). The text was not yet available in English: Sir Tobie Matthew?'s English translation was published in Saint-Omer in 1620 (and was accused of Popist bias). I locate no other copies of this edition, but a 1609 edition from the same press appears to be a reissue of the same sheets, containing the same mispagination (cf. Bodleian online catalogue of their incomplete copy), with an additional appendix containing a life of Augustine extracted from Baronius?' Annales Ecclesiastici (besides the Bodleian copy two French locations are cited by the Catalogue collectif de France: BnF and Valognes in the Manche).

        La pazzesca pazzia de gli hvomini e Donne di Corte Innamorati. Ouero, Il Cortigiano Disperato

      Venice: 1608. 8vo (136 x 91 mm). [1] leaf, [14], 293, [1] pp. A few small ink splashes on title, light dampstain in fore-margins of last few leaves. Seventeenth-century laced-case carta rustica, title (?"Cortigian disperato?") lettered on lower edges, later endpapers.*** Second edition (1st 1592) of a steamy 16th-century prose novella by a writer from Ravenna. Pascoli's erotic romance of star-crossed lovers commences at the battle of Lepanto (1571) and takes place in the ducal court of Barcelona. The story is framed as a flashback related to the narrator by the protagonist, Gioseffo, a young Italian nobleman, found nearly starving in a forest in Spain, where he has been reduced to the life of an animal. Spurned by Panfilia, who prefers Paolo, Gioseffo exacts revenge. While rich in passion, jealousy and suspense, the tragic tale evokes "contemporary courtly life and mores … with some measure of consistency and realism" (Cambridge Companion to the Italian Novel, pp. 25-26). Pascoli's only other works were devotional verses, praised by Tasso. This appears to be a page-for-page reprint of the first edition (1592). Not in Gamba, Novelle italiane. Cf. Gino Raya, Il Romanzo (1950), pp. 104-106.

Nella prima parte dell'opera, dalle colonne 151 - 52 alle colonne 183 - 84, numerose illustrazioni a silografia sulla distillazione. L'autore insegnò dialettica e  retorica a Basilea, dove nacque, prima di ricevere il dottorato presso la Facoltà di Medicina. La sua dedizione contribuì molto a ridurre il numero di vittime della peste che devastò Basilea nel 1565. Nel 1566 è stato nominato primo medico a Colmar, la città dove morì nel 1586.   L'opera, divisa in due parti è un'edizione riunita di due trattati apparsi separatamente a Basilea: l'Antidotarium Generale, nel 1576 e l'Antidotarium Speciale, nel 1577.   Il primo trattato comprende un libro sulla distillazione, con numerose xilografie. Il secondo, l'Antidotarium speciale è un voluminoso trattato sui rimedi, dove il vino gioca un ruolo importante. Cfr. Aboca "Come il bibliografo Duveen ci indica, di questo Antidotarium generale et speciale, interessa specialmente la parte che dà le istruzioni per compiere le operazioni chimiche ed illustra vari tipi di apparati alchemici. Ma, come dice il frontespizio, il suo pregio è di prendere fedelmente il meglio degli scritti di "ottimi autori antichi e recenti" e disporre il tutto con metodo. L'elenco di questi autori, già citati nella prefazione, è riassunto a cominciare da pagina 4 ed è tanto incredibilmente vasto da diventare un vero e proprio repertorio. Vi sono inseriti alchimisti antichi come Arnaldo da Villanova, medici antichi come Avicenna, Ippocrate e Mesuè, medici contemporanei come Bartolomeo Quaranta ed il Falloppio, botanici contemporanei come Fuchs e Dodoneo ed altri maestri dell'importanza di Galeno, Fracastoro, Giovanni Battista Porta, Bauhin e Andrea Laguna. Un riassunto enciclopedico con conoscenze trasversali di tutte le materie. Nella prefazione Wecker afferma che i "dispensatori" antichi e moderni sono numerosi, ma le loro diversità inducono ad avere difficoltà nel reperimento pratico dei medicamenti e nella comoda somministrazione. Analizziamo come esempio il termine "aqua": nell'indice ricorre per almeno venticinque volte dall'"aqua somnifera" all'"aqua vitae optima", all'"aqua dentes dealbantes": i temi trattati vanno dalla medicina alla botanica ed alla farmacia.". Esemplare complessivamente in buone condizioni, modesta macchia di inchiostro sbiadito all'angolo superiore di alcune carte nella prima parte; macchiolina con piccola lacuna senza perdita di testo al bordo inferiore della colonna 362, modesto alone all'angolo  superiore interno di poche carte verso la fine del volume.

        De distlillatione Lib. IX. Quibus certa methodo, multipliciq; artificio, penitioribus naturae arcanis detectis, cuius libet mixti in propria elementa resolutio, perfecte docetur.

      Romae, ex Typographia Reu. Camerae Apostolicae, 1608. 4to (218 x 160mm). pp. (20), 154, (6), with engraved portrait of Porta and 35 woodcuts in the text. Contemporary vellum. A fine copy of the first edition. "This book is as rare as it is beautiful" (Duveen p. 481). "It deals in successive books with the names of the vessels used in the various distillation processes (fancifully compared with animals and birds) and the degree of heat; distillation of waters; oils of flowers, exotic plants, resins, and woods; strong waters (aqua regia), water or oil of vitriol, oil of sulphur (with figure of a multiple-headed alembic), and expressed oils." (Partington I, p. 24)." Porta published in 1608 at Rome a work on distillation, its methods, apparatus and applications, which is of interest as giving a more comprehensive view of the application of distillation in the sixteenth century than is found in any other work of the period" (Stillman, pp. 350 - 351). The beautiful engraved portrait of Porta by I. Laurus shows the author surrounded by various distillation apparatus, a cornucopia and animals such as an elephant, a monkey and a crocodile. //Norman 1725, Duveen 4481.
