        The Mysteries of Nature and Art. In foure severall parts. The first of Water works. The second of Fire works. The third of Drawing, Washing, Limming, Painting and Engraving. The fourth of sundry Experiments

      Thomas Harper for Ralph Mab, LONDON 1635 - A rare and important work, known particularly for the inspiration that it gave to the young Isaac Newton. It was so popular that the second edition was published just a year after the first. This copy of the 'second Edition; with many additions unto every part' is in poor condition. It is in a fairly recent leather binding with blind tooled borders and gilt titles to spine. The contents are extremely fragile and browned - presumably because of the particular batch of rag paper used in its printing. It lacks the decorative title page and the individual title pages for Second and Third Books. It also lacks the portrait of Bate. The title page for the Fourth Book 'The Booke of Extravagants' is present. All pages have browning and fraying to edges, particularly at the beginning and end of the work where 4 pages have paper repairs. There does not appear to be text loss. There is ink annotation to the Table (index). A few pages have paint markings as if the owner was experimenting with paint and trying out the recipes in the book on the book itself. There are tape remains on another page. The work is profusely illustrated. 5 images of the work will be displayed but please contact us if you would like to see more to judge the condition of the book. We have priced this book to take account of condition, and it offers the opportunity to obtain a very rare work at a lower price. Size 19cm x 14.5 cm. 288 pages plus Table (16 pp).

        Puritas Haygica seu grammatica Armenica ...Rome, Sacrae Congretationis de Propaganda Fide, 1675. With : (2) AGOP, Joannes. Grammatica Latina Armenice' explicata: ... Rome, Propaganda Fide, 1675. (3) AGOP, Joannes. Puritas lingue Armenicae ...Rome, Propaganda Fide, 1674. 3 works in 1 volume. 4to. Contemporary sheepskin parchment.

      Salmaslian 89; 1296 (& 19), 1298, 1295. The first and only editions of three complementary manuals concerning the Armenian language and grammar, in matching format and layout, all three by the Armenian priest Johannes Agop (1635-1691) in Venice, born in Istanbul. They were printed and published by the Propaganda Fide in Rome, established in 1623 to promote the Catholic religion, primarily outside Europe. The Propaganda Fide established its own printing office in 1626 and stocked it with a wide variety of non-Latin printing types, many newly cut for them. Like many of their publications, the present ones were intended in part for missionaries working in the Ottoman Empire, the Caucasas and Iran, but also in part for Christians who lived in these regions. For that reason Agop wrote not only an Armenian grammar with the instructive text in Latin (ad 1), but also a Latin grammar with the instructive text in Armenian (ad 2) and a work entirely in Armenian on the "purity" of the Armenian language (ad 3). These linguistic publications by Agop still are important for the history of the Armenian language, being among the few on the subject published in the 17th century.With the armorial stamp of Cardinal Albani (1649-1721), from 1700 Pope Clement XI, on the title-page. A few quires toward the end of the Puritas linguae Armenicae are browned, but otherwise a very good copy, with only an occasional small marginal tear or very minor foxing. Three important and complementary sources for the Armenian language, formerly owned by Pope Clement XI.

      Leuven, 4. X. 1635. - Folio. 1¾ pp. Unpublished letter to the jurist Gérard de Courselle (Corselius), regarding a controversy at the Leuven "Collegium Baianum": "[.] Collegium Baianum mihi caro erit quam maxime.

Contemporary calf, richly gold-tooled spine.

      Blake, p. 476; Garrison & Morton 2729; Waller 9963. First edition of anatomical work on the human vascular system by French anatomist and physiologist Raymond Vieussens (ca. 1635-1715). After his medicine studies in Montpellier he became famous for his book on the nervous system, Neurographia universalis (1684) and he became the physician to several leading citizens and members of the French aristocracy at the Royal Court. In 1688 he was designated as Royal physician, a position probably procured for him by Fagon, the famous and powerful court physician, to whom this work is dedicated."Vieussens was among the first to describe the morbid changes in mitral stenosis, the throbbing pulse in aortic insufficiency, and the first correctly to describe the structure of the left ventricle, the course of the coronary vessels and the valve in the coronary vein. He was the first to diagnose thoraic aneurysm during the life of the patient. Vieussens included a classic description of the symptoms of aortic regurgitation in his book" (Garrison & Morton).Quire I misbound, and two owner's inscriptions (one crossed) on the title-page. Very good condition.

        Insulae Americanae in Oceano Septentrionali cum Terris adiacentibus

      Amsterdam, 1635. unbound. Map. Copperplate engraving with original hand coloring. Image measures 15.5 x 31". Sheet measures 22 x 33". This beautiful map of the West Indies extends from Virginia to the northern coast of South America and displays the extent of mid-17th century geographical knowledge of the still relatively 'new' New World. Blaeu based his map on a 1631 work by Hessel Gerritz, who charted the region during a 1628 voyage with the Dutch East India Company. The information Gerritz gathered allowed for a highly detailed map in which even small islands are delineated and labeled. To these findings, Blaeu has added Virginia and the west coast of Central America, creating a complete portrait of this portion of the Atlantic. A dedication cartouche to Alberto Conradi Vander Burch features an allegorical figure, a cherub and a coat of arms. The map is in good condition with wide margins, a bit toned. Clean split in the vertical crease in bottom margin. Latin text on verso. Willem Blaeu (1571-1638) was a prolific Dutch mapmaker who started one of the most famous map publishing firms of the 17th century. It was at this time that the Dutch controlled the map trade, and their ornate and beautiful maps had immense popularity. Blaeu was instrumental in driving this dominance in his lifetime, and this legacy was continued by his sons. Expert repair to center fold and lower left corner chipped. Priced as is.

Needham, in his History of Embryology, describes Marci's theories regarding embryology in the present book as a "development of extraordinary interest" (p. 80). "His Idearum Operatricium Idea, published in 1635, was a mixture of purely scientific contributions to optics, and speculative theories about embryology. Thus he explained the production of manifold complexity from the seed in generation by an analogy with lenses, which will produce complicated beams from a simple light-source. The formative force radiates from the geometrical centre of the foetal body, creating complexity but losing nothing of its own power... "Marcus Marci thus links together the following trends of thought: (1) the old Aristotelian theory of seed and blood, (2) the new rationalistic mathematical attitude to generation as e.g. in Gassendi and Descartes, (3) the new experimental approach, in his contributions to optics, (4) the cabbalistic mysticism of light as the fountain and origin of things. Finally (5) by his brilliant guess of centres of radiant energy, he anticipates much of modern embryology (field theories, fate of part as function of positions, etc.). Pagel and Baumann give an elaborate discussion of his opinions."-Needham, pp. 80-81. As stated above this copy lacks the second leaf of the table of contents. This was usually excised by the printer or binder as the contents listed on this leaf were not printed in the present book due to a change of plans. II. First edition, and very rare, of the best known and most important book of Marci. The present book contains "his theory of the collision of bodies (particularly elastic bodies) and gave an account of the experiments whereby he reached it. Although these experiments are described precisely, Marci was unable to formulate general quantitative laws from them, since his results were not drawn from exact measurements of either of the sizes and weights of the spheres that he employed or of the direction and velocity of their motion. Rather, he was content with simple comparisons of the properties that he investigated, characterizing them as being 'smaller,' 'bigger,' or 'the same' as each other...despite these shortcomings, his observations and conclusions are generally right. He was able to distinguish different qualities of spheres and to state the concepts of solid bodies and of quantity of motion."-D.S.B., IX., p. 97. The delightfully engraved title-page illustrates many of the experiments described in the book: weights being dropped from a high tower, a cannon being fired, careening balls on a billiard table, sparks flying off a grinding wheel (centrifugal force), a man swinging from two ropes (pendulum motion), and a man batting a ball against a wall. Marci "was the first to make substantial progress with the difficult problem of impact, a problem that Galileo touched on without success and that Descartes completely muffed."-E.C. Watson in American Journal of Physics, Vol. 16 (1948), pp. 246-47. III. First edition of what I believe to be the rarest of all the books by Marci. The present book, concerned with the theory of collisions, is a continuation and elaboration of his 1639 publication De Proportione Motus seu Regula Sphygmica. In this work, Marci responds to criticisms made of his 1639 book [see item II] and presents new theories concerning the geometrical form of bodies in movement, the properties of free fall, the duration of the oscillation of a pendulum and its length, etc. There are a number of references to Galileo. Lacking the fourth preliminary leaf (with engraved portrait of the author on verso). IV. First edition of a very rare book. "Marci also carried out research in optics, setting down most of his results in Thaumantias...(1648). In his optical experiments, designed to explain the phenomenon of the rainbow, Marci placed himself in the line of such Bohemian and Moravian investigators as Kepler, Christophe Scheiner, Baltasar Konrad, and Melchior Hanel. In his experiments on the decomposition of white light, for which he employed prisms, Marci described the spectral colors and recorded that each color corresponded to a specific refraction angle. He also stated that the color of a ray is constant when it is again refracted throughout another prism...He did not mention the reconstitution of the spectrum into white light (a result that is first to be found in the work of Newton), although he did study the 'mixture' of colored rays. He also made inconclusive experiments on light phenomena on thin films."-D.S.B., IX, p. 97. Lacks the portrait of Marci.

Palau 80177. El neoestoicismo español del siglo xvii tiene como representante más eminente al escritor y poeta Francisco de Quevedo. Su adhesión a la filosofía estoica nos remite a tres fuentes principales: La primera de ellas es la obra de Sánchez de las Brozas, que Quevedo encomió y de la que se sirvió para su propia traducción en verso del Enchiridion de Epicteto. En segundo lugar, se sabe que Quevedo bebió también del neoestoicismo de Lipsio, con quien además mantuvo una asidua correspondencia durante los últimos años de vida del maestro holandés. Por último, habría que citar la influencia que ejerció sobre Quevedo la literatura oratoria que empezó a proliferar desde las últimas décadas del siglo xvi y que en sus prédicas hacía uso constante de tópicos estoicos extraídos fundamentalmente de las obras de Séneca. Aparte de sus traducciones versificadas de Epícteto y del Pseudo-Folcílides, fueron varias las obras morales que publicó Quevedo y que han llevado a catalogarlo como autor neoestoico.En el prólogo a su traducción reconoce el autor que para llevarla a efecto tuvo ante sus ojos "el original griego, la versión latina, la francesa, la italiana que acompañó el Manual con el comentario de Simplicio", la de Sánchez de las Brozas y la del Maestro Gonzalo Correas. De todas ellas el "Lipsio de España" -como le llamara Lope en el Laurel de Apolo- prefiere la del brocense, que califica de "docta y suave, y rigurosa en lo importante, no en lo impertinente".

        Le chancre ou Couvre-sein feminin.

      Douay Gerard Patte 1635 - FIRST EDITION. 8vo. pp. 181 [iii]. Roman and Italic letter, woodcut initials. Faded contemp ex libris on t.p. Age browning, otherwise a good, clean copy in modern boards, all edges marbled. FIRST AND ONLY EARLY EDITION of a work on the immorality of female nudity, split into two parts focusing on the nudity of the neck, breasts, and nipples, and the use of a veil to cover the head, by Jean Polman, Canon of Theology at Cambrai. Polman is blunt: from the very first sentence he claims that cancer in women is most likely to be breast cancer, caused by exposing the breasts to the air. In 8 sections he rages against nudity, beginning with the discussion of its unnaturalness (citing very selectively from Genesis), listing authors pagan and Christian alike who deplore nudity (and condemning those who do not), and arguing that depictions of “du sein et des tetins” (a phrase repeated almost to poetic proportions) are always paired with mortal sin, scandal, and death. “With aid of repeated puns on the word for cancer (chancre) and the cut-out of a dress-neck (echancrure), he equates the horrible.cancer of the flesh with.the cancer of fashionable nudity” (Kunzle, Fashion and Fetishism, 81). Working his way from the bosom to the head, Polman separates part two, clothe-like, into four "folds" of argument, which repeat the strategy of the previous tract: appealing to nature, scripture, Church Fathers, and finally pagans. The core of the argument is drawn from the discussion of veils from 1 Corinthians II (“every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered, dishonoreth her head”).

The work is a reaction to the controversy between “women of the world” who in 1654 were given the name Les Précieuses (the Precious ones), “because it was said they attached value to many things that had none”. Among their interests, holding literary salons, writing novels and poetry, contributing to science and poilitics, was the fashion of low-cut dresses whose necklines sometimes plunged as low as the navel. Gay tells us this resulted in an ongoing battle between them and local clergy in Flanders, and Polman himself reports that in 1635 the Archbishop of Arras sent a directive prohibiting their dress to bishops of his diocese. “Historically the Précieuses represented a form of feminism. In the wake of the Fronde they felt the need and the duty to react against a state of affairs and a state of mind that threatened the tenuous conquests made by their predecessors. The social and sexual subjugation of women was the first item of concern. Thus Mlle de Scudéry: ‘One marries in order to hate. Hence a true lover must never speak of marriage, because to be a lover is to want to be loved, and to be a husband is to want to be hated’” (Davis et. al., A History of Women in the West III p. 405-6). They were “much ridiculed but ultimately influential”, and the fashion itself somewhat pervades French popular culture in depictions of Marianne, the national symbol of France. An enthusiastic polemic on a very specific subject, thoroughly researched by an impassioned author whose only other claim to fame, the Breviarium theologicum (1650), was placed on the Index of Prohibited Books, [Attributes: Hard Cover]

The spine is slightly faded. Good copy of a work with beautiful plates.
