[HEINSIUS, Daniel].
Landwehr, Emblem Books Low Countries 281 (5 copies); Praz, pp. 85-98; STCN (4 copies). Very rare 1608 edition of the first original emblem book in Dutch by the famous Leiden Professor Daniel Heinsius (1580-1655), one of the most famous scholars of the Dutch Renaissance. The first poem is signed: Theocritus à Ganda, the pseudonym of Heinsius, and the last with his initials D.H. Interesting is that three of the emblems bear the name of Hugo Grotius, but his actual contribution is unknown.The love emblems of Heinsius were first published anonymously as Quaeris quid sit Amor, quid amare, cupidinis et quid, Castra sequi? (Amsterdam, 1601), and ca. 1606 as Emblemata Amatoria (without date or publisher's address). Both editions are extremely rare. Several later editions appeared from 1612 onwards. Right margin of the third leaf strengthened with paper without loss of text, several dampstains and some occasional minor spots. Good copy.

Menacho, Juan Perez de
Lima, 1608. Manuscript in ink. 147 leaves. 4to. Contemporary vellum, minor spotting to title leaf, final leaf starting, first blank torn, covers starting. In custom red half morocco slipcase and chemise. Manuscript in ink. 147 leaves. 4to. A rare survival: a manuscript commentary on Thomas Aquinas' Summa Theologiae by an eminent Peruvian Jesuit. The work forms a discussion of the First Part of the Second Part, Questions 1-5 - namely, "De ultimo fine hominis" which focuses on the question of human happiness ("beatitude") Clearly a working manuscript, evident in the various crossings out and revisions, the different dates on the title page and colophon indicate the text was completed overs several months, finally being completed on February 14, 1609. The number 6 written on the upper cover indicated this could be the final volume of the six volume commentary on Aquinas's work Menacho published. Having studied at the university of Lima, Menacho entered the Jesuit order in 1583. He taught at the college of San Pablo and was appointed to the chair of theology at the university of San Marcos in 1601. The author was a casualty of the now famous earthquake that destroyed Lima on 19 October 1609 (eight month after completing this ms.). He was left paralyzed for the remaining 16 years of his life, though continued to write and teach until his death. He is the author of 13 other works including Privilegios de los indios, Theologiae moralis tractatus; Redditibus eccleciasticae, and Privilegios de la Compañia de Jesus.

Eben dies sollte seine Franziskus-Biographie leisten, indem sie bereits im Leben des Heiligen die Extreme auszugleichen versuchte. 1266 beschloß das Generalkapitel denn auch, alle früheren Franziskus-Legenden für obsolet zu erklären, wenn nicht zu vernichten, so das Bonaventuras Legenda [maior] zumindest die nächsten Jahrhunderte als offizielle Vita galt und zusammen mit der Ordensregel von 1223 den franziskanischen Kanon bildete" (aus Kindler, Bd. 24 (Nachträge), S. 10758). - Die 9 reich ausgeschmückten Kupferstiche von Giacomo Franco (1550-1620) zeigen die verschiedenen Etappen des Lebens von Franziskus. - Innen nur vereinzelt leicht gebräunt.

BORELLI, Giovanni Alfonso.
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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

HARVEY, William.
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 th … [Click Below for Full Description]

AUGUSTINUS, Aurelius (354-430).
Rouen: Romain de Beauvais, 1608. 16mo (114 x 78 mm). Collation: A-Z AA-QQ8. [2] ff., "580" [i.e., 569], [51] pp. With pagination errors: p. 188 misnumbered 189; from that page forward odd numbers appear on versos and even numbers on rectos; pp. 520-529 are omitted. Printer's woodcut device on title. Clean tear in gutter of B8 entering text block, the paper of sheets P and Q slightly flawed, P6 with paper flaw affecting text, occasional dampstaining. Contemporary laced-case binding of flexible parchment with a cover lining, 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).

PASCOLI, Gabriele
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.
