Aselli "records the discovery of the lacteal vessels. While performing vivisection on a dog that had recently fed, Aselli noticed a network of vessels in the mesentery and along the peritoneal surface of the intestine. The vessels released a whitish fluid similar to milk when incised, so Aselli called them lacteas, sive albas venas. He made a systematic study of these vessels in different species of animals, noting the chronological relationship between their engorgement and the animal's last meal, and erroneously conjectured that the vessels led to the liver; it was not until Jean Pecquet's discovery of the thoracic duct and its continuity with the lacteal vessels that the process of absorption was clearly established."

Manoscritto (Siena)
1640. 4to (cm. 29) Manoscritto di 5 cc.nn. (la quinta è bianca), 86 cc. num. e 19 cc.nn. (bianche). Testo in prevalenza su 20 righe. Nitida, bella grafia. Legatura coeva in piena pergamena con titolo (’Storia di Siena’) ms. al ds. Ottimo stato di conservazione. Il manoscritto contiene, tra l’altro, ‘Numero dell’Anime della Città e masse... Famiglie della città sopra ducati cento d’entrata... Numero di Cavalieri, Dottori, Notari, Famiglie nobili... Denaro che si rigira in Siena... Descrizione di tutte le Città . Terre e Castelli ad uno ad uno con il numero de’ Fuochi, Anime, Poderi Ecclesiastici...’. Questa Relazione sullo Stato di Siena e suo Dominio sembra sia stata ordinata dal Granduca Ferdinando II e redatta da A. Ventura, F. De Medici, B. Fantini e G. Biringucci. In quel periodo si era infatti verificata una diminuzione dell’industria e un incremento dei conventi con conseguente crescita dei religiosi regolari insieme ad un decremento della popolazione. Ciò aveva provocato una contrazione delle entrate e un aggravamento del debito delle singole Comunità , costituendo naturalmente fonte di grave preoccupazione. Rarissimo e importantissimo documento. L’unica altra copia a noi nota è conservata all’Archivio di Stato di Siena, ma differisce in alcuni dettagli dalla nostra e non contiene i dati della popolazione relativi agli anni 1596 e 1638. Inoltre manca dell’aggiornamento degli stessi dati fino al 1657.

Die Stadt ist eines der ältesten hessischen Heilbäder, zugleich ist sie seit 2014 ein anerkannter Kneippkurort. Bad Schwalbach ist ein Kurort etwa 20 Kilometer nordwestlich der hessischen Landeshauptstadt Wiesbaden. Die Kernstadt liegt in 289 bis 465 Meter Höhe im westlichen Hintertaunus sehr langgestreckt auf 2,5 Kilometer Länge in einem linken Seitental der Aar, das vom Nesselbach durchflossen wird. Über 56 Prozent der Gemarkungsfläche besteht aus Wald. Bad Schwalbach wurde als Langinswalbach im Jahre 1352 erstmals urkundlich erwähnt und war seit 1364 als Pfarrei bekannt. Weitere historisch dokumentierte Erwähnungen des Ortsnamens sind Swalbach 1360 und Langenschwalbach Anfang des 16. Jahrhunderts. Erste zuverlässige Berichte über die Mineralquellen gibt es ab 1568 durch den Wormser Arzt Tabernaemontanus, der den Ort auch in seinem 1581 erschienenen Werk Neuw Wasserschatz bekannt machte.

1640. that is, for Reparations, in its final expanded form, in an attractive upright hand, with, in another hand, the English Commissioners' Answer, dated 7th January 1640 (1641 modern reckoning), and the Scottish Reply, all with transcriptions. (On 8th September 1640, after invading Northumberland and Durham, the Scots wrote to Charles I at York repeating their demands in Seven Articles, drawn up by their recent Parliament. Negotiations were begun at Ripon and were transferred to London after the Long Parliament opened on 3rd November). Henderson recalls the Scots' "distresses in our religion and liberties", saying "our ... supplications for redress were answered ... with the terrors of an army" (in June 1639), and that "after a Pacification" (at Berwick), "greater preparations were made for a war, whereby many acts of hostility were done against us both by sea and land, the kingdom wanted administration of justice, and we constrained to take arms for our defence", being forced also "to maintain so many thousands as were spoiled of their ships and goods ... and many others who lived by fishing, and whose callings are upholden from hand to mouth by sea trade". The Scots' only hope other than "perfect slavery ... in our souls, lives & means" has been "to come into England ... Since therefore the war on our part ... is defensive", and "in common equity, the defendant should not be suffered to perish in his just and necessary defence ... it is not against reason ... to demand some reparation of this kind".

Venice, Giunta, 1640. 4to. (8), 800, (36) pp. With 4 folding engr. plates (Europe, Asia, Africa, America). (Bound with) II: The same. Della ragioni di stato, libri dieci. Ibid., 1640. (8), 264 pp. Contemp. vellum with ms. spine title. Famous geographical treatise by Giovanni Botero (1544-1617), with Arabia pictured on both the Asia and the Africa plate, and discussions of the Arabian Peninsula (pp. 120 ff.), the Middle East (pp. 123 ff.), "Arabia troglodotica" [!] (p. 130 f.), Egypt (pp. 131 ff.). Originally conceived as a statistical examination of the ecumenical propagation of Christianity, in subsequent editions the work gradually expanded until it formed a comprehensive repertory of anthropology and geography, with systematic accounts of the physical properties, demographics, economic resources, military power, and political constitution of all states of the world. - Appended to this is Botero's famous treatise "Della ragion di Stato" (The Reason of State), in which Botero argues - against Machiavelli - that a prince's power must be based on some form of consent of his subjects, and princes must make every effort to win the people's affection and admiration. - Some browning throughout; occasional insignificant edge defects and small tears; traces of old library stamps. Graesse I, 504. Cf. Cox I, 71.

Small wormhole in upper margin of some leaves, 3Y6 and 3Z1-2 with tears mended, margins of 2 leaves of index strengthened, last leaf (errata) with a small hole affecting about 7 words and laid down, all the repairs apparently done at a very early date, indeed the wormhole in the index goes through the repair paper (the first time I have seen this), old reversed calf, morocco label, joints repaired, corners a little worn. Despite these blemishes this remains a good copy of a herbal which is difficult to find complete, let alone in good condition. The author, a London pharmacist, received the title of Royal Apothecary from James I. Later Charles I appointed him as his chief botanist ("Botanicus Regius Primarius"). He had a private garden in Long Acre (Theatrum p.609) in which he grew many rarities. Work on his herbal, which was delayed for a number of years by the success of Johnson's edition of Gerarde, was greatly helped by the unpublished notes of the French botanist, Matthias L'Obel, who had lived in North London for the last years of his life. The result was an enormous folio work containing descriptions of nearly 4,000 plants (almost 1,000 more than the 1636 Gerarde) including some twenty-eight species not previously recorded in Britain. The most important of these were the strawb … [Click Below for Full Description]

Parker, Henry
1640. An Important Statement Concerning an Act that Pitted Parliament against Charles I [Parker, Henry (1604-1652)]. The Case of Shipmony Briefly Discoursed, According to the Grounds of Law, Policy, And Conscience. And Most Humbly Presented to the Censure and Correction of the High Court of Parliament, Nov. 3. 1640. [London: Printed by Thomas Harper], 1640. [ii], 49, [1] pp. Octavo (6-1/2" x 3-3/4"). Stab-stitched pamphlet bound into recent textured paper boards, gilt title to front board. Light browning and faint dampstaining to text, title page printed off-center with some loss to text. $450. * Only edition, first issue. Ship money, a tax levied on coastal regions to pay for naval protection, was one of a handful of taxes that English monarchs could levy without parliamentary approval. Believing King Charles I was abusing this power, Parliament passed the Ship Money Act 1640 to abolish the tax. The conflict that resulted from this act was one of the causes of the Civil War. A barrister, Parker was "the most influential writer to defend the parliamentary cause in the 1640s" (Goldsworthy). His pro-Parliament review of the case is considered to be one of the first significant political statements of the 1640s. He published his works anonymously, some under the pseudonym "Observator." According to the STC, there are two issues of this work; the second has "policie" rather than "policy" in the title. Goldsworthy, The Sovereignty of Parliament 97.

BESLER, Basilius.
Eichstatt: 1640 - Very good condition. Copperplate engraving. Later hand-colour. Plate mark size: 485 × 400 mm. Mounted size: 730 x 640 mm. A wonderful life size botanical print from Basilius Besler's epic work; the 'Hortus Eystettensis'. Besler was a Nuremberg apothecary, commissioned in 1600 by Konrad, the Bishop Prince of Eichstatt, to engrave the contents of his extensive gardens. The resulting 374 plates (illustrating more than a thousand flowers), were arranged according to the yearly seasons. When the book was first published in 1613, it was the largest book ever printed, and the scarce, coloured versions of the prints sold for ten times the price of those sold in black and white. Besler worked on the drawings for almost sixteen years, supervising a team of at least six engravers. The impressive size and scope of these elaborately produced copper engravings certainly make the Hortus Eystettensis one of the most ambitious and stunning botanical publications in the entire history of botanical illustration.

Manoscritto - STORICO
in-4, ff. 45 non numerati, di cui l'ultimo bianco, legatura in carta. Si compone di due parti: la prima è un resoconto storico-politico in italiano dei vari Stati di cui si componeva, presumibilmente intorno al 1640, l'Italia scritto per "presentarsi alla Corte Imperiale"; il secondo (incipit f. 33recto) è una "Informazione e Ragioni della Ser.ma Republica di Genova per il titolo Reggio sopra i Regni di Cipro, Sardegna, Corsica e Liguria da presentarsi alla M.ta Cesarea dell'Imperatore" 1638. Vengono date informazioni sullo Stato della Chiesa (di cui si evidenzia il problema della corruzione di Papi e Cardinali), su quello del re Cattolico, della Repubblica di Venezia, del Duca di Savoia, del Gran Duca di Toscana, della Repubblica di Genova, del Duca di Modena, del Duca di Mantova, del Duca di Parma e della Repubblica di Lucca. Il tipo di grafia, chiara e ben leggibile, e i riferimenti a fatti soprattutto relativi all'epoca del Papato di Urbano VIII, permettono una datazione intorno al 1640. Curioso notare che per ogni Stato vengono riportati dall'a. quelli che definisce gli "arcani di Stato" e cioè le linee guida del governo in campo militare, politico ed economico. Interessante anonimo manoscritto del XVII secolo.

Matthaus MERIAN "il vecchio"
Goa
Francoforte, 1640. Tavola pubblicata nell'opera "Newe Archontologia Cosmica" di Johann Philip Zabelin, meglio conosciuto con lo pseudonimo di J.L.Gottfried, arricchita dalle tavole di Mattheus Merian. Il "Neuwe Archontologia cosmica, Das ist Beschreibung aller Kayserthumben Königreichen und Republiken der gantzen Welt [.]", viene edito a Francoforte nel 1638 e ristampato in lingua latina nel 1638 e nel 1649 e in lingua tedesca nel 1646 e nel 1695. La stampe di Merian sembrano essere anche stata pubblicata separatamente, e confluirono nel "Theatrum Europaeum" una sorta di giornale sulla storia delle terra, in lingua tedesca, iniziato da Matthäus Merian e proseguito poi da altre editori, che venne pubblicato tra il 1633 e il 1738 [in 21 volumi in quarto]. Incisione in rame, in buono stato di conservazione. This plate was first used in Johann Ludwig Gottfried, "Neuwe Archontologia Cosmica.", first published by Matthias Merian in 1638, and reissued in numerous later editions. The print seems also to have been published separately. Then it was included in the "Theatrum Europaeum"; was a journal on the history of the German-speaking lands by Matthäus Merian, published between 1633 and 1738 in 21 quarto volumes.

Blaeu Willem Janszoon (1571 - 1638) Amsterdam
Artist: Blaeu Willem Janszoon ca ; issued in: Amsterdam; date: ca1640. - technic: Copper print; - colorit: colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 36 x 48; - description: Map of Chile; - vita of the artist: Joan Guilliemus Blaeu was the eldest son of Willem Janszoon Blaeu (1571-1638), and was probably born in Alkmaar in the province of Noord-Holland in the final years of the 16th century. He was brought up in Amsterdam, and studied law at the University of Leiden before going into partnership with his father in the 1630s. Although his father Willem had cartographic interests, having studied under the Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe and having manufactured globes and instruments, his primary business was as a printer. It was under the control of Joan that the Blaeu printing press achieved lasting fame by moving towards the printing of maps and expanding to become the largest printing press in Europe in the 17th century.By the 1660s the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum (or Atlas Maior as it had became known by this time) had expanded to between 9 and 12 volumes, depending on the language. With over 3,000 text pages and approximately 600 maps, it was the most expensive book money could buy in the later 17th century. The translation of the text from Latin into Dutch, English, German, French, and Spanish for several volumes created enormous work for those involved in typography and letterpress activities. It is estimated that over 80 men must have been employed full-time in the Blaeu printing house in Bloemgracht, not including engravers who worked elsewhere, with over 15 printing … [Click Below for Full Description]
