        De Distillatione Lib. IX. Quibus certa methodo, multiplicique artificio, penitioribus naturae arcanis detectis, cuiuslibet mixti in propria elementa resolutio, perfecte docetur

      Rome: Ex Typographia Reu, Camerae Apostolicae, 1608. First edition. A very fine copy of &#147;the most comprehensive view of the applications of distillation of the period&#148; (Norman). &#147;This book is as rare as beautiful. Ferguson, speaking of the reimpression (Strassburg, 1609), says that &#145;the Roman edition is a much finer book.&#146; (Duveen). <br/><br/> & &#147;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.&#148; (Stillman, The Story of Early Chemistry, pp. 350-51).<br/><br/>& &#147;The first and longest, and the most fully illustrated, of the nine books deals with different forms of stills. Porta describes various forms of distilling apparatus for various uses including the preparation of essential oils, on which Forbes says he is a very good authority having had occasion to observe the industry in Naples. Porta was the first to give yeilds from different materials. He also deals with various stills designed to produce different strengths of alcohol, all with air cooled condensers; one still is heated by the sun. In the same spirit as his <i>Physiognomonia</i> and <i>Phytognomonica</i>, in one section he compares the stills and their functions with animals. Hot things require a still with a short thick neck, just as nature has given &#145;angry and furious creatures&#146; like the bear and the lion short strong necks. After this preliminary treatise on stills, the other 8 books give more specific details of the preparation of perfumes and the distillation of essential oils; resins; and woods; and the extraction of virtues of substances, such as <i>aqua vita essential</i>, that is alcohol. <br/><br/> & &#147;The fine author portrait by Giacomo Lauro or Iacobus Laurus (active c. 1583-c.1645) shows Porta aged 64 surrounded by motifs referring to his various studies: physiognomy, astrology, geometry, optics, fortification, cryptography and distilling.&#148; (Roger Gaskell). <br/><br/> & &#147;There were four printings in Rome in 1608, all from different settings of type (see Wellcome), but no priority has been established.&#148; (Neville).<br/><br/>& Norman 1725; Honeyman 2521; Neville 323; Duveen 481; Ferguson II:216; Partington II:24; Stillman 360; Wellcome I:5211. 4to: 215 x 155 mm, pp. [20] 154 [6], contemporary limp vellum with manuscript title to spine, old inscription and stamp to title, some very light spotting and staining to some leaves, but a very fine unretsored copy. Rare in such good condition.

        Della Scienza Mecanica e delle Vtilita, Che si traggono da gl'Instromenti di quella Opera Cavata da manoscritti ...GALILEO'S PRECURSOR TO THE DISCORSI. Ravenna: Stamp. Camerali, 1649.

      Rare first edition in the original Italian of Galileo's early treatise on mechanics, a precursor to the research that he would present in his Discorsi. This popular treatise, widely circulated in manuscript form, is effectively a "bridge between statics and dynamics," and according to Drake, "far superior to other available works on the subject" (Galileo on Motion and Mechanics, p. 137).<br/><br/> "Galileo presents... the analysis of simple machines... in an unusual way. He is justly celebrated in this tract for his use and explication of the principle of virtual velocities" (Clagett in Drake, viii). Incorporating elements from Aristotle, Archimedes, Pappus, Philoponus, Jordanus and others, Della Scienza Mecanica offers "a coherent and illuminating exposition of the foundations of mechanics." Drake explains that while little of the content of Della Scienza Mecanica found its way into the Discorsi (with the exception of a discussion of the lever, Galileo omitted the time-honored topic of simple machines, choosing to emphasize his newer findings on dynamics), the Scienza shows "unmistakable novelty," and represents an important stepping stone in Galileo's intellectual development; early investigations into conservation of energy and the principle of inertia can be traced here. <br/><br/> Della Scienza Mecanica is based on a series of lectures on aspects of statics and of simple machines delivered by Galileo for his pupils at Padua in the 1590s. In Drake's estimation, the text was most unlikely to have been revised after 1608, and thus "its essential content may be considered to have followed very shortly after the composition of De Motu" (ibid p. 137). The work remained unpublished until Marin Mersenne produced a French-language paraphrase of the original manuscript in Paris in 1634, Les Méchaniques de Galilée. Shortly thereafter, in 1636, Robert Payne worked from a manuscript copy to translate the Scienza into English, but this was never published; Thomas Salusbury published a new translation in 1665 in his Mathematical Collections and Translations. Luca Danesi was the first to prepare the original Italian text for publication, and his edition of the Scienza would be included in all subsequent collections of Galileo's works (the Bolognese Dozza Opere of 1655, etc.). <br/><br/> Danesi (1598-1672) was variously an architect, engineer, writer, lawyer, and mathematician. He designed the churches of S. Romualdo in Ravenna and S. Marie dei Teatini in Ferrara, both dating from c. 1630. The "Trattato di mecaniche" was reprinted as a separately paginated section at the end of Danesi's Opere (Ferrara, Bolzoni, 1670), which also includes a tract on practical geometry and one on bridges, as well as an analysis of the Tiber River floods. <br/><br/> OCLC lists CalTech, Iowa, and l'Institut de France. A sole copy of Danesi's 1670 Opera is listed at CalTech. <br/><br/> Cinti 121; Riccardi I.517.161 and Danesi I.388.1; Carli-Favaro 227; Houzeau-Lancaster 3386 (1655 ed.); Gamba 479; Sotheran, First Suppl. 3157; not in Bibliotheca Mechanica, which had only the reprint in the 1655 Dozza Opera.. 4to: 230 x 155. 8, 63 pp., with woodcuts throughout.
