BOYLE, Robert.
, . . Fulton 22and pp. 9ff, 110a, and pp. 73-74; cf. DSB I, pp. 377-379. Interesting convolute of these three very rare Latin translations of three major works by Robert Boyle (1627-1691), the best-known English scientist of his day and the greatest experimental scientist of the mid-seventeenth century. Although Boyle's first scientific interest was chemistry, this is the author's first published scientific work - on pneumatics -, the one that established his fame. The work is also known as the Spring and weight of the air. With a translation of A defence of the doctrine touching the spring and weight of the air (first published together with the 2nd edition of the New experiments in London, 1662, in which he developed this last discovery into a quantitative relationship: that volume varies inversely with pressure, rightly called Boyle's law).Book block almost loose. Good copies.

MULLENS, Gelasius [= Guilielmus SALDENUS].
, . . Ad1: Knuttel 8972; ad 2: not in Knuttel; Tiele; Van der Wulp, etc. Two very rare pamphlets on the unity and controversies within the Dutch Protestant Church during the seventeenth century by the orthodox-Calvinist minister Guilielmus Saldenus (1627-1694). In the first pamphlet Saldenus tries to restore the peace between the Remonstrants and Contra-Remonstrants, and in the second he discusses the religious dispute in the Dutch Protestant Church concerning the person of Jean de Labadie, a 17th century French pietist. A third pamphlet bound in between is replaced by modern blank leaves. Good copies.

Chez Sebastien Cramoisy. First edition, rare. Brand of printer in the title page. Full Calf blond glossy contemporary. Back to nerves ornate. Part of title in red morocco. Triple fillet border on covers. Roll on turns and interior. Gilt edges. Split bits with various gaps in tail and head. Caps threadbare. Gaps between the nerve and the part of title. Notebooks quite yellowed. Corners bumped. Binding quality with many flaws, but still nice outfit. Very interesting study that stands out in this field through its interest in the subject and value of medals and coins, while the vast majority of studies deal mainly with effigies and figures. It is very precise and erudite on various alloys of lead and tin, and gold, among the Romans in particular, on the use of currencies and the system on which they are based. The approach of the book is much more than most archaeological works on the field, comparing, restoring both from different known that the literature on the field currencies. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

GRASSI, Orazio [pseudonym: Lothario SARSIO SIGENSANO].
Naples: Matthaeus Nuccius, 1627. First Italian edition, very rare, of Grassi's counter-polemic against Galileo's Il saggiatore (1623). This is the concluding work in the series of publications which document the "controversy of the comets," one of the most infamous polemics in the history of science. According to Drake, these texts "deserve study for their bearing upon the origin of modern scientific method ... The controversy is of both scientific and philosophical significance because it was in this connection that Galileo disclosed his conception of scientific method." The Ratio ponderum was first published at Paris the year before, but that edition was very unsatisfactory (see below) ? the present Naples edition "took care of the numerous errors and omissions in the mangled Paris edition" (Feingold, p. 152). It was dedicated to Cardinal Francesco Boncompagni, the Archbishop of Naples (which explains why it was published there). Galileo preferred not to reply to the Ratio ponderum, and thus the controversy came to an end. "The dispute over comets had consequences of great significance both to Galileo and to science in general, as the favorable reception of [Il saggiatore] led him to proceed with the publication of the much more famous Dialogue, for which he was later imprisoned by the Inquisition. That fateful event was in turn intimately connected with the rift between Galileo and the Jesuits, which was widened and made permanent, if indeed it did not originate, in the public dispute about comets. Thus the controversy is closely linked with some of the most dramatic eve … [Click Below for Full Description]

Questa grande tavola è una copia ingrandita, in controparte, della prima versione della Tentazione di S. Antonio prodotta da Jacques Callot nel 1617. Verso la fine della sua vita, nel 1635, Callot realizza una seconda versione, che mantiene alcuni elementi caratteristici della prima, quali la prospettiva teatrale e la moltiplicazione dei personaggi. Lo spazio teatrale è incorniciata da un paesaggio roccioso su entrambi i lati e popolato da figure mostruose; un fiume attraversa il paesaggio; al centro, si osserva un figura femminile nuda trasportata su di un carro formato da ossa. In alto nel cielo, la figura gigantesca del Diavolo che espelle dalla bocca una moltitudine di diavoli. La figura di S. Antonio si distingue sulla sinistra, sotto un grande arco. Nel margine inferiore, la dedica dell'autore "Antonius Meithingus" a Ferdinando II de'Merdici , quinto Granduca di Toscana e figlio di Cosimo II.
