Some light browning, a few scattered brownspots, but in general clean. ¶ Second Latin edition of Galilei's epoch-making work, the masterly defence of the Copernican system and the first popular exposition of the two world systems. The work was originally published in Italian as "Dialogo sopra i Due Massimi Sistemi del Mondo, Tolemaico e Copernicano", 1632. The first Latin translation appeared in 1635. "The 'Dialogo', far more than any other work, made the heliocentric system commonplace." (PMM. 128)."In dialog form, arguments are presented..., comparing the Ptolemaic and Copernican systems. Two interlocutors argue for Copernicus, one for Ptolemy, thus leaving Galileo free to claim impartiality. Galileo meets the two cheif objections to heliocentricity - stellar parallax and vertical fall of terrestrial bodies. In this book Galileo introduced his importent theory of the tides. The book was placed on the Index where it remained until 1822. Galileo was tried and confined by the Inquisition."(Dibner "Heralds of Science" No. 8).Cinti: 109. … [Click Below for Full Description]

Le carte M2 ed M3 parzialmente staccate. Carta lievemente uniformemente brunita, lievi e sporadiche fioriture sula margine di alcune pagine. Ottima copia. Prima edizione di questo trattato di astronomia, scritto in forma di dialogo fra l'autore e l'anti-copernicano Libert Froidmont (1587-1658), che contiene interessanti osservazioni astronomiche e tratta inoltre di ottica, comete e galassie. L'opera comprende 183 sezioni e fu scritta in risposta alla Lettera al Principe Leopoldo di Toscana, detta anche sul candor lunare, scritta da Galileo nel 1640, di cui sono riportati ampi stralci. Nella sua opera Litheosphorus (Udine, 1640) Liceti aveva attaccato Galileo, contestando le spiegazioni contenute nel Sidereus Nuncius e nel Dialogo circa la luce secondaria della Luna. In risposta Galileo scrisse diverse lettere, tra cui una inviata al principe Leopoldo, che aveva espressamente richiesto di conoscere l'opinione di Galileo a riguardo. La lettera a Leopoldo ebbe circolazione manoscritta e fu più volte rivista ed aumentata fino a diventare un vero e proprio saggio di cinquanta pagine a stampa. Liceti ne ricevette una copia nel febbraio del 1641, replicando immediatamente con la presente o … [Click Below for Full Description]

MYDORGE (Claude).
Parisiis, ex Typographia I. Dedin, 1641. in-folio. 2ff. 308pp. Plein vélin raciné, dos lisse orné de filets (reliure de l'époque). Première Edition Complète des quatre livres (exemplaire de seconde émission avec un nouveau titre à la date de 1641). Les deux premiers livres avaient déjà été publiés en 1631. Cet ouvrage important et rare, qui fut inséré en 1644 par Mersenne dans son "Universae geometriae" sous le titre "De sectionibus conicis", contient les travaux de l'auteur sur les sections coniques considérées comme base géométrique pour l'étude de l'optique. Il contient notamment l'explication de la méthode inventée par l'auteur pour déformer les figures géométriques, méthode qui fut utilisée notamment par Newton puis, beaucoup plus tard, par Chasles qui lui donna le nom de "déformation homographique". "Mydorge's works on conic sections contain hundreds of problems published for the first time, as well as a multitude of ingenious and original methods that later geometers frequently used, usually without citing their source. ( ) A friend of Descartes and an eminent geometer, Mydorge was also well versed in optics. He possessed a lively curiosity and was open to all the new ideas of his age. Like Fermat, he belonged to that elite group of seventeenth-century scientists who pursued science as amateurs but nevertheless made contributions of the greatest importance to one or more fields of knowledge" (D.S.B.).

SCHURMAN, Anna Marie Van.
Ex Officina Elseviriana, Lugd. Batavor. 1 blank leaf + TP + 3-112 + 1 blank leaf, small Octavo. First Edition. The original appearance of this essay was in the second edition of a collection of letters, Epistolica Quaestio de Vitae Terimino, compiled by Jan van Beverwijck and published in 1639. The essay first appeared as a separate book in 1641 where it included the correspondence between the author and André Rivet, Adolfus Vorstius, Andreas Colvius, and Jacobus Lydius, that was generated by the essay.The final pages contain some complimentary verse written by van Schurman. Anna Marie had by this time broken with Descartes (with whom she had been friends) and rejected the 'new' philosophy in favor of the 'old school' approach of syllogistic argumentation - which is the form that she so pointedly and brilliantly uses to make her points throughout this book. This work argues that women were fit to be educated in all matters but that they should not use their education in professional activity or employment and it should not be allowed to interfere with their domestic duties. For its time this was a truly radical position.The book was widely read throughout the Republic of Letters and translated into several languages including Dutch, French and English (where it appeared under the title The Learned Maid or, Whether a Maid may be a Scholarin 1659). beautifully preserved contemporary vellum with just the lightest of discoloration and spotting to the covers. With a one-line contemporary ink inscription to the top of the first free endpaper. There is a faint (so faint as to be u … [Click Below for Full Description]

FABRY, Wilhelm (Fabricius Hildanus).
Lugduni [Lyons]: Sumptibus Joan. Antonii Huguetan. FIRST COLLECTED EDITION of the most important work of Wilhelm Fabry (1560-1624), sometimes called 'the father of German surgery', although he was actually Swiss by birth. It constitutes the best collection of surgical case records of the seventeenth century, and of the most varied character, illustrated with many fine and curious woodcuts. Fabry's chief influence on surgery was through his correspondence with German physicians and surgeons, and for his urging surgeons to study anatomy. He was assisted in his work by his wife, an esteemed surgeon in her own right, who is credited with suggesting to use of a magnet to make the first extraction of an iron splinter from the eye. A good review of Fabry's surgical work is Ellis Jones, "The life and works of Guilhelmus Fabricius Hildanus (1560-1634)" in Med Hist. 1960 Jul. 4(3): 196-209, who discusses Fabry's work under the headings general surgery including hernia and cancer, obstetrics and gynaecology, oto-rhino-laryngology, orthopaedics, ophthalmology, neurosurgery and genito-urinary surgery. See G&M 5570; this is in effect the first available edition, as Fabry's six(?) Centuriae were published in different places over 35 years and are extremely rare -- for instance, the Wellcome catalogue shows only two of them, Krivatsy four, and VD17 three. The present volume contains five Centuriae, but the sixth one is a mystery; according to Hirsch it was published in London in 1641, but no book by Fabry was published in London with this title or date; Jones gives it as Lyons, 1641, the … [Click Below for Full Description]

SANDERUS (Antonius).
1641. 2 volumes in-folio. Reliures hollandaises de l'époque en vélin doré, filets dorés sur les plats , fleurons dorées. Toutes tranches dorées. Édition originale très rare de la description des Flandres de l'historien flamand et chanoine d'Ypres Antoine Sanders, ou Sanderus (1586-1664). Ouvrage capital pour l'histoire et la topographie flamandes au XVIIe siècle, que Sanders commença en 1634. L'édition parut sous la fausse adresse de Cologne. Blaeu, par cette supercherie, voulut semble-t-il échapper à la censure en faisant croire que le livre avait été publié dans une ville catholique. Le premier volume débute par une épître de l'auteur au roi Philippe IV suivie d'une seconde épître aux États de Flandre. Suivent une description générale de la Flandre, la nomenclature des comtes de Flandre, puis la description de Gand, de Bruges, du Franc de Bruges et d'Ypres. Le second volume contient une épître au gouverneur-général François de Mello, plusieurs pièces de vers en l'honneur de Sanders, deux dédicaces à la vierge et à Philippe Triest, la description de la ville de Courtraix, de la châtellenie de Cassel, de Furnes, d'Alost, de Grammont, de Renaix et de plusieurs petites villes de Flandre, et se termine par deux appendices à pagination séparée, de 68 et 38 pp. Ces deux volumes sont entièrement consacrés à la Flandre flamingante. Il était prévu un troisième volume donnant la description topographique de la Flandre française, de Tournai et du Tournaisis, qui ne fut pas publié. L'auteur s'en expliqua dans un violent manifeste intitulé Apologidion. Sanders fit orner l'ouvrage d'une … [Click Below for Full Description]

BREMEN. -
Ohne Ort u. Dr. 1641-52. 4to. Zus. über 1000 S. Leder d. Zeit mit Rückenschild u. linearer Deckel- u. Rückenvergoldung; etwas fleckig, Bezug an den Kapitalen u. Gelenken rissig bzw. brüchig. Der Streit um die Reichsunmittelbarkeit Bremens begann nicht erst mit dem Westfälischen Frieden, nahm aber nach 1648 an Heftigkeit zu. 1640 z. B. lag Bremen wieder einmal mit Oldenburg in einem alten Zollstreit, der nur mit dem Nachweis der Reichsunmittelbarkeit zu entscheiden war (und den Oldenburg später gewann). Das diesbezügliche Privileg Kaiser Heinrichs V. wurde in seiner Echtheit nämlich wiederholt angezweifelt. Bereits 1646 stand fest, daß im Frieden das Erzbistum Bremen an Schweden fallen würde; deshalb war für Bremen - vor allem aus wirtschaftlichen Gründen - die Reichsunmittelbarkeit unabdingbar. Darauf ließen sich die Schweden bei den Verhandlungen in Münster und Osnabrück aber nicht ein: sie wollten das Privileg nur für das stadtnahe Territorium, nicht aber für entferntere Gebiete gewähren. Die folgenden vier Schriften geben einen Einblick in die Auseinandersetzungen zwischen der schwedischen Krone und der Hansestadt, die sich noch bis 1666 hinzogen. - Der Sammelband enthält in Bindefolge: 1. Kurtze fundamentalische (!) Erläuterung Des von der Stadt Bremen, wieder daß der gantzen Welt kundbahres Herkommend etliche Jahr hero sich anmaßlich arrogirten ReichsStädtischen Praedicati. 1652. 8 nn. Bl. - 2. (CONRING, H.)

Diodati Giovanni
Stampata in Geneva per Pietro Chouet, M. DC. XLI. (mm. 310 x 200). Piacevole legatura posteriore in piena pelle con titolo e fregi dorati al dorso. Antiporta incisa con data M. DC. XL, frontespizio, pp. (2), 837, 1 c. b; 331; 148; 68. Bell'esemplare con solo piccolo restauro su parte bianca dell'antiporta. Seconda edizione, migliorata ed accresciuta. I caratteri che distinguono la versione del Diodati sono molti, in primo luogo la ricerca della fedeltà alla fonte; in secondo luogo la chiarezza, dovuta all'integrità dei termini usati dal traduttore ed alle parafrasi che, sebbene a volte criticate, non sono meno utili per il significato del senso biblico; in terzo luogo il valore teologico delle note e dei commenti che accompagnano la versione, che testimoniano una profonda conoscenza delle lingue antiche ed una completa comprensione delle Scritture; ed infine grande eleganza di stile. Diodati attribuiva ogni bene che poteva trovarsi nella sua opera a Dio solo e frequentemente affermava che il Signore l'aveva aiutato nel suo compito. In questo Diodati si poneva nella tradizione di Melantone nel fare uno stretto legame fra la guida di Dio e l'impegno umano nella materia delle traduzioni bibliche. Questo viene bene illustrato dalla lettera di Giovanni Diodati a J. A. De Thou, scritta durante il 1607: "...mi sono proposto con tutte le mie forze e nella più grande coscienza... di aprire la porta ai nostri italiani alla conoscenza della verità celeste. Nostro Signore, che mi ha miracolosamente guidato e fortificato in quest'opera, la fortifichi con la Sua benedizione, alla quale s … [Click Below for Full Description]

Reliure du XVIIIe s. Titre-frontispice h.-t. gravé à l'eau-forte et enluminé, 106 pp. (front. compris), 194 pp., (1) f. blanc. Rogné un peu court en tête avec qq. atteintes au titre courant, mouillure angulaire sur la seconde moitié du vol. Edition originale rarissime de cet étonnant recueil du poète nantais Gabriel Du Bois-Hus. Ecrit en 1638 à l'occasion de la naissance du dauphin, le futur Louis XIV, c'est en quelque sorte un vaste panégyrique outrageusement emphatique et baroque. La dédicace en prose au cardinal de Richelieu est un long discours panégyrique de plus de 80 pages "ou la louange est portée jusqu'aux limites de l'adulation". Les trois autres parties de l'ouvrage sont composées de sixains où la flagornerie la plus exacerbée côtoie de vrais moments de ravissement poétique, la première (La nuit des nuits) célèbre la nativité de Jésus Christ, la seconde (le Jour des Jours), celle de Louis XIV; enfin, la dernière (Le miroir du Destin) est une prédiction de nature astrologique sur Louis XIII, comparé au Rédempteur, qui doit, par ses actions, sauver le Monde.

(*4), 377, colophon, [20 pp. index], errata pp. A very handsome contemporaneously bound copy of this highly important work in the history of science, minor edge repair to the frontis, occasional very slight evidence of staining, the binding with some very expert and sympathetic refurbishment. GALILEO'S EXPOSITION AND PROOF OF THE COPERNICAN SYSTEM, which led to his trial before the Inquisition and sentence to perpetual house arrest. The book, as is well known, was placed on the Vatican's list of outlawed books. It was not published again legally in Italy until approximately a century after the original printing. The title was not removed from the "Index librorum prohibitorum" until 1823. In 1610 Galileo published his SIDEREUS NUNCIUS, in which he described the construction of his telescope and his observations using the new instrument. His discoveries did not prove that Copernicus's heliocentric theory was correct, but they did show that geocentric philosophy of Aristotle and the geocentric system proposed by Ptolemy … [Click Below for Full Description]

MATTHIEU P.
appresso Ghirardo Imberti, 1641. Cm. 15, pp. (16) 231 (1), 91 (1). Leg. in cart. '700. Margini sobri. Internamente ben conservato. Così Piantanida (455) a proposito di quest'opera: "Le due operette sono dedicate dal Mattei al re di Francia. La prima parte contiene la storia di Seiano e la seconda quella d'una femmina di Catania, che, come avverte il traduttore, è tratta dall'ultima storia del "De casibus virorum illustrium" del Boccaccio... Le due storie sono però un'allusione al maresciallo d'Ancre e alla sua moglie". Il Matthieu (1563-1621) fu poeta e storico al servizio di Enrico IV e del figlio Luigi XIII ed autore di numerose opere di taglio storico-letterario.
