        Della Fisonomia Dell’Huomo…Libri Sei…

      Padua: Pietro Paolo Tozzi, 1623., 1623. [WITH:] INGEGNERI, Giovanni. Fisionomia Naturale… [WITH:] POLEMON. Fisionomia Di Polemone… [WITH:] PORTA, Gio[vanni] Battista Della. Della Celeste Fisionomia…Libri Sei… 4 Parts in 1, as issued, each with separate title, all 4 works listed on general half-title. 4to. ff. [9], 222; pp. 64; pp. 40; pp. 6 p.l., 147. numerous woodcuts in the text of the first & fourth works (incl. 3 full-page portraits). large engraved device on titles. woodcut ornaments & initials. contemporary vellum (binding loose, some chipping to spine & upper edge of front cover, some light marginal dampstaining). First published in 1586, Porta’s famous treatise was one of the earliest major texts specifically devoted to physiognomy, the art of determining character or personal characteristics from the form or features of the body. The numerous woodcut text illustrations draw comparisons between the physical features of men and animals in an attempt to relate their nature. These comparisons still persist in our vocabulary in adjectives such as bovine, ovine, lupine, aquiline, assinine, porcine, &c. Bound herewith, as issued, are Italian editions of Giovanni Ingegeri’s treatise on physiognomy, another work on the same subject by Polemon or Polemo, a Greek writer who is supposed to have lived between 100 and 250 A.D., and Porta’s work on celestial physiognomy, in which he proposes to refute astrology and prove instead that what the astrologers state as the effects of the planets, signs, and constellations are rather to be attributed to the qualities, features, and other peculiarities of the human body.

        Della Gravità dell'Aria e Fluidi, esercitata principalmente nelli loro homogenei. Dialogi Primo, e Secondo fisico-matematici. (Segue il secondo volume:) Dialogi Terzo, Quarto, e Quinto.Padua: Mattio Cadorin, 1671-72.

      Rare first edition, the Riccati copy (see below), of an important work on the physics of fluids, composed in five parts in the form of dialogue between the Polish Count Leszczynsky and one Ofredi, who represents the author himself. "Angeli's <i>Della gravita dell'aria e fluidi</i> is largely experimental in character. In it he examines the fluid statics, based on Archimedes' principle and on Torricelli's experiments. It also contains theories of capillary attraction" (DSB I: 164-5).<br/><br/> Among the most famous successors of Galileo, Stephen degli Angeli (Venice 1623 - Padua 1697) studied mathematics at the University of Bologna. He taught literature, philosophy and theology at Ferrara from 1644, and then transferred to Bologna in 1645 where he came under the influence of Cavalieri. So impressed was he with Angeli's ability that Cavalieri entrusted to him the task of correcting and publishing his last work, <i>Exercitationes geometricae sex</i> (1647). <br/><br/> In 1662 Angeli was appointed to the chair of mathematics at Padua, where he remained until his death. This position had previously been held by Galileo, whose experimental method Angeli embraces fully in the present work. While at Padua Angeli corresponded with a number of other mathematicians, including Torricelli and Viviani, and in 1662 he taught geometry, mechanics and astronomy to James Gregory. Among Angeli's other pupils at Padua was Jacopo Riccati (1676-1754), who entered the university in 1693 and was strongly encouraged by Angeli to study the latest methods of analysis. Jacopo was the founder of the Riccati dynasty of mathematicians which was continued by his sons Giordano and Vincenzo. There is thus the possibility that the present volume was a gift from Angeli to Jacopo Riccati. <br/><br/> Honeyman 93; Carli & Favaro, 331, 333; Poggendorff I, 46-47; Riccardi I (I), 36..
