        La nobiltà di Milano [..] aggiuntovi il supplimento in questa nova impressione del sig. Girolamo Borsieri.

      appresso Gio. Battista Bidelli 1619 2 volumi in 1 in - 8° (cm. 18), legatura coeva in cartonato d'attesa con titolo su tassello al dorso (risguardi rimontati); pp. [48] 574 [2bb.], [4] 74 [10] in buono stato e in barbe, con qualche fioritura. Seconda edizione (dopo la prima del 1595), ma prima con il Supplimento di Borsieri. Di grande interesse storico nonché inesauribile fonte di notizie d'arte (il quinto libro è dedicato esclusivamente ad artisti e affini). Caratteristiche le notizie sugli opifici milanesi che fin da allora fiorivano (miniatori, armaiuoli, ebanisti, ricamatori, fabbri d'arte e orefici, ma soprattutto gli ingegnosissimi intagliatori di pietre fini e di cristallo). Nel supplemento del Borsieri sono importanti gli ultimi capitoli sulle ricche gallerie private di Milano. Cfr. Schlosser 367.379; Predari 165; Hoepli 794. Buon esemplare.

        The government of the tongue.

      With engraved allegorical frontispiece, woodcut head - pieces and initials. Full green morocco, label and gilt lettering on spine, extremities rubbed. With ownership inscription of Mary Ollyffe on frontispiece. The rare first edition of Allestree's guide to ethical speech, a lesson in morality with a severe regard to the faults and follies of others, and therefore, an improvement upon our own disposition. "Hold your tongue when nothing good can come from the words of criticism and condemnation of them." It is full of moral advice and instruction about correct judgement. Among the many subjects he treats are: the manifold abuse of speech, lying, uncharitable truth, of flattery and boasting and obscene talk. He closes with ten specific "lessons" on how to proceed through one's life while being able to commit to the positive utilization of the general rules of morality as well as their specific (and numerous) exceptions. Allestree (1619 - 1681), a noted tutor, was later professor of Divinity at Oxford and provost of Eton College. As an ardent royalist, he took up arms for the king, and performed all duties of a common soldier. He was frequently seen holding a musket in one hand and a book in the other. He is noted "as a man of extensive learning, of moderate views, generous and charitable, of a solid and masculine kindness, and of a temper hot, but completely under control" (Encyclopedia Britannica, I, p. 694).

Young, Bibliogr. of Memory, pp.265 - 266. Yates, Art of Memory, pp.300 - 301. Rossi, Logic and the Art of Memory, p.92: «Between 1617 and 1619 (at the same time as the young Descartes began to express his interest in Lullism and the arts of memory) the works by Johannes Paepp were published in Lyons. One of these works, the Schenkelius detectus seu memoria artificialis hactenus occultata was a detailed commentary on Schenckel?s Ars memoriae, a work which Descartes knew well. In the Artificiosae memoriae fundamenta and the Introductio facilis in praxim artificiosae memoriae, Paepp set out to expound the Aristotelian, Ciceronian and Thomist doctrines on memory, but he had also patently been influenced by the Lullist tradition, and was familiar with its most significant exponents, from Bruno to Alsted. Following in the footsteps of Alsted, he fiercely criticized the denigrators of the art, and defended the idea of the interdependence of logic and mnemotechnics: while logic was necessary for some of the arts and disciplines, he argued, memory was indispensable for all forms of knowledge... A substantial part of his work is devoted to a discussion of the doctrines of Bruno...» An interesting collection of four rare works on artificial memory, all in first edition (second issue of the first one). Four titles printed in red and black, 3 finely engr. full - page coat of arms, nine full page text illustrations, and numerous tables and diagrams in the text. Small old stamp and owner's name on title, some mild toning of the paper, but generally a good copy in contemp. vellum, neatly recased.

        Emblematum Ethico-Politicorum Centuria Iulii Guilielmi Zincgrefii / Coelo Matth: Meriani MDCXIX.

      (Frankfurt), apud Johann Theodor de Bry, 1619.. 188 x 141 mm. 110 Blatt. Mit gestochenem Titel und 100 emblematischen Textkupfern von Matthias Merian. Halblederband um 1850 mit Rückenvergoldung (Rückenbezug mit Fehlstelle im unteren Drittel).. *Dünnhaupt S. 4364, 7.I.1. Faber du Faur 191. VD17 14:627325Z. - Erste Ausgabe des klassischen Werkes, das wiederholt in mehreren weiteren Ausgaben noch bis Ende des 17. Jahrhunderts gedruckt wurde. - Die vorliegende Erstausgabe ist sehr selten, die 100 Kupfer in guten und klaren Abzügen. - Enthält 100 Verse in französischer Sprache und 100 allegorische Textkupfer von M. Merian. In späteren Ausgaben (schon ab 1624) wurden die Verse in Deutsch oder mehrsprachig gedruckt und der Titel lautete dann "Hundert Sitten- und Politische Sinnenbilder". - Das Werk ist "... eine Sentenzensammlung, welche Merian'sche allegorische Darstellungen zu erklären bestimmt war. Der Werth und die Bedeutung dieses unter der fördernden Anregung seines Lehrers Jan Gruterus, und wie aus seinem Briefwechsel ersichtlich ist, unter Mitwirkung seines gelehrten Freundes Michael Lingelsheim entstandenen Werkes, wird erst klar wenn man den tiefen Einfluß berücksichtigt, den die emblematische Litteratur auf die Entwicklung der Dichtung im 17. Jahrhundert ausgeübt hat" (ADB. - Die Prosakommentare von Zincgref waren der Theorie des politischen Späthumanismus verpflichtet, insbesondere dem Einfluß des niederländischen Späthumanisten Justus Lipsius (1547-1606). - Nur wenige Seiten geringfügig gebräunt, insgesamt ein sehr sauberes und frisches Exemplar der seltenen Erstausgabe, lediglich der spätere Einband mit einem Fehlstück am Rücken. // Rare first edition of this famous and beautiful emblem book.

        Libra astronomica ac philosophica qua Galilaei Galilaei opiniones de cometis a Mario Guicucio in Florentina Academia expositae, atque in lucem nuper editae, examinantur a Lothario Sarsio Sigensano ONE OF THE GREATEST ARGUMENTS IN SCIENCE:THE CONTROVERSY OF THE COMETS

      Engraved title vignette of one of the 1618 comets in the constellation of Libra, with large historiated initials and text diagrams. Antique calf in a contemporary style with gilt borders and gilt- ornamented spine; overall in superb condition. First edition of Grassi?'s extraordinarily important and bitter attack on Galileo?'s theory of the nature of comets, later inspiring Il Saggiatore. The scientists?' famous dispute started the prior year with Grassi?'s De tribus cometis, which Galileo (using the alias of his assistant Guiducci) followed up with his provocative Discorso della comete (1619). Grassi responded (under the pseudonym Lothario Sarsi) with this publication of Libra astronomica, in which he strongly defends the ideas of Tycho Brahe and the Jesuits. Galileo went on to publish his polemic and rhetorical masterpiece, Il Saggiatore, as a direct reply to this work. Grassi (1583-1654) was a Jesuit mathematician who taught at the Collegio Romano. This controversy ruined his relationship with Galileo, and earned his adversary the ire of the entire Collegio Romano — a major factor in his later difficulties with the Inquisition.

Modern binding of white cloth with marbled boards. Text on upper left front board. Minor shelf wear. Rubbing to boards. Clean, unmarked, and well-preserved pages.Johann Rudolph Glauber was a German-dutch alchemist and chemist in the iatrochemical tradition of Paracelsus. He was one of the first in the field to actively experiment with chemical engineering, and is known for his discovery of sodium sulfate, which was named Glauber Salt after him. Another of Glauber's significant contributions was the advent of improved distilling furnaces. Glauber wrote at least 40 volumes on chemistry, alchemy, and their history, especially ancient eastern. Mundi Miracula discusses the Turkish and Islamic roots of alchemy. The first volume was later followed by six volumes worth of continuation. Since the 17th century, the series has been widely translated and reproduced. Some additional contributions to the written history of chemistry and alchemy include his Tractatus de natura salium and Novum lumen chimicum.

        La dioptrique oculaire, ou la théorique, la positive, et la mechanique de l'oculaire dioptrique en toutes ses espèces.Paris: Thomas Jolly and Simon Benard, 1671. First edition.

      Exceptional copy in contemporary red morocco of "the most exhaustive treatise on lens making in the seventeenth century. It is a six-hundred folio page long, comprehensive, cogently-argued treatise on telescope making. It contains an impressive amount of theoretical and practical, first-hand information on all of its facets - from explanations of the telescope's working principles, to descriptions of lens grinding and polishing, to rules for the right distances between lenses, to methods to find the right apertures, to descriptions of the shapes and articulations of the wooden parts and bolts and screws needed to properly point a telescope to the skies, to the construction of tubes, and so on and so forth." (Albert et al, <i>The origins of the telescope</i>, pp. 289-291).<br/><br/> "The first, shorter part of the book is devoted to the theory of vision, including the optical properties of the main parts of the eye. It follows Kepler's account but complements it with views taken from the Jesuit Christopher Scheiner's <i>Oculus</i> (1619) and <i>Rosa ursine</i> (1632). The second part, which dedicates more than one hundred pages to the theory of the telescope, pervasively shows the deep influence of Kepler's <i>Dioptrice</i>. The basic notions and axioms come from Kepler, including the approximate refraction law for angles of incidence no greater than 30º ... (pp. 8 & 25). To Kepler's results about the focus of convex lenses and meniscus, d'Orleans adds a few new results, but not a full treatment of the problem. He takes into consideration only the focus of radiation parallel to the axis of the lens. For it he finds the focal distance for a planoconvex lens, a biconvex symmetrical lens, a biconvex meniscus with two general radius of convexity, and a concavo-convex meniscus whose surfaces have two general radii. He also improves Kepler's results about the focus of two contiguous equal convex lenses. D'Orleans also takes up in full Kepler's understanding of magnification, his procedure to measure it, and his explanations for the inversion of the image (pp. 11-13 & 158). More importantly, d'Orleans closely follows Kepler's analysis of the ways in which a convex or a concave lens combine with the eye separately (pp. 67- 71 & 73-78). Next, he presents the theory of the Dutch telescope as it appears in the <i>Dioptrice</i> (pp. 80-89). The full treatment of astronomical or Keplerian telescopes is one important addition to Kepler's <i>Dioptrice</i> we find in d'Orleans' treatise (pp. 91-108). Astronomical telescopes are called telescopes 'of the second kind (oculaire dioptrique de deuxième espèce)', while the Dutch or Galilean telescopes belong to the 'first kind' (première espèce). D'Orleans' analysis of the combination of two convex lenses closely follows Kepler's. Recognising these telescopes to be the most important ones for the purposes of astronomical observation, d'Orleans carefully explains many practical problems posed by their actual construction. In particular he insists in the one physical feature that outwardly distinguishes them from Dutch telescopes, i.e. that objective lenses in Keplerian telescopes had smaller diameters than ocular lenses, which made Keplerian telescopes to be thicker at the end to which the eye was applied and thinner at the end pointed to the sky (pp. 178 & 190). The astronomical telescope occupies pride of place in the carefully designed frontispiece of d'Orleans' treatise. Other second-kind telescopes may include three, four or even five convex lenses (pp. 109-118). Their properties are explained with the same techniques Kepler (and d'Orleans) used to explain the combination of two convex lenses (exemplified above by the demonstration of Dioptrice's proposition 107). The second important theoretical addition to Kepler's <i>Dioptrice</i> we find in d'Orleans' treatise concerns the theory of microscopes with one, two and three convex lenses (pp. 125-140), a topic Kepler ignored. The last and longer division of d'Orleans' <i>Dioptrique oculaire</i> (almost 300 pages) concerns the 'positive and mechanical' parts of telescope making, i.e. the actual construction of tubes and its parts, and techniques for lens grinding and polishing. In the opening pages of his treatise d'Orleans claims himself to be Kepler's 'follower', and calls Kepler the main author of the 'modern theory' (doctrine moderne) of dioptrics." (Albert et al, <i>The Origins of the Telescope</i>, pp. 289-291).<br/><br/> "Cherubin discusses the effects of various kinds of glasses on the eye and explains his techniques for grinding lenses. He first describes an early, stationary, compound microscope; he provides possibly the earliest description of the scioptric" (Albert et al, <i>Source book of ophthalmology</i>, p. 60). "The French Capuchin friar Chérubin d'Orleans (1613-97), real name Michel Lasséré) published a large volume in 1671 on optics, in which, among other subjects, he describes his invention of a rhombic pantograph apparatus attached to a telescope and drawing board, by which accurate drawings of distant objects could be made. The point of the inner rhombus was located in the common focal plane of the objective lens and the eyepiece, and a pencil was placed in the joint of the outer rhombus. Thus with a stationary scene and a rigidly mounted telescope plus its accessories, it would be feasible to make enlarged drawings of distant scenes, etc." (Whitaker, <i>Mapping and naming the moon</i>, p. 76. Whitaker notes that the instrument is depicted in one of two full-moon images in the book, that the instrument would not be suitable for a moving image such as the moon, and that Cherubin has plagiarised Hevelius). Cherubin was famous for his binoculars and binocular microscopes and telescopes, a number of which have survived to this day. Their construction is described in detail in Daumas, <i>Scientific instruments of the 17th and 18th centuries</i>, pp. 32 and 38. Cherubin also invented the adjustable stage for a microscope: "Chérubin arranged to focus the object by screwing the base up and down by means of a screw in the centre of the base. This appears to be the first instance of a focusing screw being applied to the stage of a microscope" (Clay and Court, <i>History of the microscope</i>, p. 82). "Chérubin d'Orléans, a prolific microscope- and telescope maker, both ground and polished his lenses with one and the same tool. He used fine sandstone for an abrasive and, after the grinding process, covered his tool with silk rubbed over with wet putty. On other occasions he paper-polished his lenses, but in both cases he departed from Huygens' use of a long pole. Instead, he stuck a short handle to the lens and ground it by hand on the brass tool" (King, <i>History of the telescope</i>, p. 57).The frontispiece was designed by Jean le Pautre (1618-1682) and engraved by Gerard Edelinck (1640-1707). The two double-page full-moon images feature cherubim (perhaps a visual pun on the author's name) at the corners wielding a variety of optical instruments, including a binocular telescope that Cherubin invented. The plates were designed by Cherubin and engraved by L. Cossinus. Other plates depict lens-grinding lathes and other apparatus, and microscopes and telescopes. One plate depicts the movement of sunspots on two solar discs.. Folio (365 x 235 mm), fully complete: pp. [2:blanks] [xlviii, including frontispiece], 419 [1:blank], [30:index] plus 57 engraved plates (of which 6 are double), and three engraved plates in text, bound in contemporary fine red morocco, raised bands, with elaborate gilting, all edges gilt, entirely unrestored. An amazing copy. Ex libris inscription dated 1700 to title page, printed label from the Parisian science publisher and antiquarian bookseller J.B.M. Duprat pasted to second blank before the frontispiece. Lower inner corner with a light water stain, a 35 mm closed tear to the frontispiece in this area, a few leaves with light browning (but much less than what usually effects this work)

En la portada hay una inscripción antigua borrada. Con todos estos minimos defectos se trata de un ejemplar absolutamente genuino. Palau 142262. Poeta conocido en su época como el "Caballero de la Rosa" y "el Poeta de la Rosa", por ser el autor de una composición especialmente brillante dedicada a esta flor. Estudió en Salamanca y, tras una corta carrera militar, entró al servicio de Rodrigo Calderón y el duque de Lerma -del que fue secretario-, quienes le confiaron misiones muy delicadas y le admitieron en la Secretaría del Estado. Las hojas 31 a 70 contienen el poema en 233 octavas "Fiestas de la traslación del Santissimo Sacramento a la Iglesia Mayor de Lerma." Su Poema heroico de la invención de la Cruz, (1468, aunque se supone que existe una edición de 1618) fue admirada por los grandes escritores de su época, especialmente por Cervantes.

        Oculus hoc est: Fundamentum Opticum, in quo ex accurata Oculi Anatome, abstrusarum experientiarum sedula pervestigatione, ex invisis specierum visibilium tam everso quam erecto situ spectaculis, necnon soldidis rationum momentis Radius Visualis ervitur; sua Visioni in Oculo sedes decernitur; Anguli Visorii ingenium aperitur

      Finely engraved allegorical frontis. & numerous woodcut diagrams in the text. 7 p.l. (incl. frontis.), 254 pp. 4to, cont. limp vellum over boards (first & last few leaves with faint dampstaining), ties gone. Innsbruck: D. Agricola, 1619. First edition, and a fine copy, of one of the most famous and important works in the history of optics. In this book, Scheiner demonstrated for the first time that the retina is the actual organ of sight and explained the pupil changes known as "accommodation." He also devised the pin-hole test ("Scheiner&#39;s test") to illustrate accommodation and refraction. "The intricate frontispiece depicts a &#39;camera obscura&#39; and a system of inverting lenses, as well as the newly-invented telescope. The peacock in the foreground carries a double meaning, representing not only the science of optics, but the overly prideful Galileo."-Linda Hall Library, Jesuit Science in the Age of Galileo, 9. A fresh copy. Early signature on title of "P.D. Huet." This is most certainly the famous French scholar and scientist Pierre Daniel Huet (1630-1721), who, being short-sighted, devoted his anatomical studies to the question of vision and the formation of the eye. He made more than 800 dissections (see Encycl. Brit.). &#10087; D.S.B., XII, pp. 151-52. Garrison-Morton 1480. .
