        Two Treatises in the one of which, The Nature of Bodies; in the Other, The Nature of the Sovle; is Loked into: In Way of Discovery; of the Immortality of Reasonable Sovles.

      Paris, Gilles Blaizot, 1644. Folio. A lovely later green full calf binding with six raised bands, gilt ornamentations and gilt leather title-label to spine. Gilt frames to boards and all edges of boards gilt. All edges gilt. Title-page a bit dusty, with old owner's name, and with a neat repair to blank margin (from verso). A very nice copy indeed. Woodcut vignettes and initials. (44), 466 pp.. The very rare first edition of Digby's seminal main work, which comprises his two treatises, "The Nature of Bodies" and "The Nature of Man's Soul". The two treatises were first printed as is seen here, together, in folio, in Paris, in 1644, they were reprinted the following year in London, in 4to, and again in 1658 and 1669. The book constitutes a landmark work of 17th century natural science, "It is the first fully developed expression of atomism or corpuscular theory, the first important defense of Harvey on the circulation in English; a modern presentation of the nervous system predating Descartes; and a ground-breaking work in embryology. It also contains the first recorded patch-test for allergy; the fullest early account in English of teaching lip-reading; and material on conditioning anticipating Pavlov." (Rubin and Huston, Digby, a Bibliography, p. 12).After having lost his wife in 1633, the English-born natural philosopher and occult scientist, Kenelm Digby (1603-1665), had settled in France, where he came into contact with Hobbes and Mersenne and came to know Descartes, whom he visited in Holland, and whom he corresponded with. Digby was an early member of the Royal Society, and he was also famous for his alchemical recipes, which he shared with the likes of Robert Boyle.According to D.S.B., The most important piece of work by Digby is the first of the two treatises published here, "The Nature of Bodies". "Here he displays clarity and logic of approach that show his appreciation of Descartes... He discusses motion extensively but qualitatively, although with many admiring references to Galileo's "Two New Sciences" (1638), which not many had read in 1644; he includes Galileo's statement of the law of falling bodies but criticizes Galileo for taking too narrow and strictly functional a view (as Descartes also criticized him)." (D.S.B., IV:96). However, the two treatises are closely linked, and the main purpose of the second, "The Nature of Man's Soul" is to show the immortality of the rational soul, a main concern of philosophers and natural scientists since ancient Greece. The tretise on the body is based on atomistic ideas of Descartes and Gassendi, and Digby sets out to reconstruct the physical world atomistically, thus creating the first fully developed atomistic system of the 17th century, which through Newton and Boyle became the foundation of modern chemistry and physics. Besides his huge influence within these fields, Digby here also, with his theories on the operations of body and soul, i.e. man's senses and mind, provides groundbreaking analysis within the fields of MEDICINE (his defense of Harvey's theory of blood circulation, also being acquainted with Descarte's objections; his own experimental observations, with which he proved that the heart beats by itself; his statement of reflex action, which was based on his observations of motor loss and sensory retention, which made him one of the early supporters of the modern conception of the nervous system), BIOLOGY (with his question of epigenesis as opposed to preformation, which he is practically the first to do since Albertus Magnus, whom he also translated; before Harvey and Malpighi, he expresses a surprisingly modern conception of embryonic development making him the main embryologist of the time and a reformer within this field; he is also the main authority on theories of heredity of his time), PSYCHIATRY (with his experiments and quite accurate ideas of conditioned reflexes he anticipates the theories of Pavlov; he conducts the first recorded patch-test, distinguishing psychological aversion from physical allergy).In this work, Digby also presents for the very first time in English the new lip-reading technique for the deaf and dumb developed by the Spanish priest Bonet, and thus the first English book on the subject (1648) quotes Digby's work. "Digby's earliest scientific work and his most important..." (Honeyman, II:877). Wellcome II:468 only has the London editions from 1645, 1658 and 1669. "This was issued, containing the author's system of philosophy, after he had had a number of conversations with Descartes... Chapter 26 deals with the circulation of the blood... Dr. Fulton (Sir Kenelm Digby, 1937) has pointed out the great importance of Digby's experiments on the heart - described in this work - by which he destroyed Descartes' objections to Harvey's conclusion on the circulation of the blood." (Duveen, 172). Partington 2: 424

      Amsterdam, Heinric Laurentius, 1644. Folio. Contemporary full vellum with neat later (19th century) rebacking. Six raised bands and gilt title to spine. Some wear to extremities. Internally a fresh and clean copy with only a bit of occasional brownspotting. Endpapers with a bit of soiling. 2 bookplates to inside of front board: Gilbert Redgrave, London (dated 1894) & Gorden M. Jones, Virginia. Text in Greek and Latin. Woodcut title-page, numerous woodcut intials throughout, and more than 600 woodcut illustrations in the text. (20), 1187, (1), (88 - Index) pp.. First edition thus, being the most important and influential edition of Theophrastus' seminal work "Enquiry into Plants" - the first systematization of the botanical world and the most important contribution to botanical science up until the Renaissance. Bodaeus von Stapel's groundbreaking edition constitutes the first illustrated edition of Theophrastus' masterpiece as well as the first with both Greek and Latin text. Furthermore, von Stapel has not only collected all relevant commentaries and knowledge, he has also added corrections and much foundational information, turning the work into one of the most influential botanical works of the 17th century, profoundly influencing the likes of Linnaeus and contributing significantly to the development of modern scientific botany. "This edition displays great care and research; the notes are numerous and learned, and all botanical information to be gleaned from Aristotle, Pliny, Dioscorides, and other ancient writers, seems to be embodied in this work. The Greek text is Heinsius's; the Latin version is that of the editor, who has placed Gaza's in the margin, with frequent corrections. The conjectures of Scaliger, Constantine, and Salmasius, are also incorporated... it has collected into one body the opinions of the old writers on the subject of the PLANTS. It contains some wood-cuts of the rarer species, which are much better uncoloured than coloured." Dibdin II:498). The numerous woodcut plant illustrations were partly copied from other sources and partly made especially for this edition. Thus, apart from being "one of the best and most thoughtfully prepared of all the editions of Theophrastos" (Hunt), our editor has also made original contributions that are of great importance. "It is interesting not only because of the brilliance of the editing, but, curiously enough, to the American botanist as well, for involving in the discussion certain species from Virginia, other parts of the New World, and Asia. The illustrations of these plants have been largely overlooked in botanical history, because of their incidental presence in a work which might not be expected to contain anything of the sort. Some were merely borrowed from l'Ecluse or de Lobel, but others seem original in this work" (H.H. Bartlett: Fifty-five Rare Books - quoted by Hunt).At the height of the Renaissance, with the expansion of the known world and the spreading of the book due to the invention of the printing press, many new publications on plants appeared. Most of these publications, however, were primarily concerned with the medicinal qualities of individual plants and only few authors or editors took an interest in the general nature of the plants and how they could systematically be classified. One of the few exceptions was Bodaeus von Stapel. With his seminal 1644 edition of "Historia Plantarum", he focused on the overarching classification system of plants and took Theophrastus' work a step further, adding essential commentaries and illustrations - illustrations that were to be copied for centuries after. These illustrations remain the standard illustrations of Theophrastus' foundational work. This edition of Theophrastus' "Historia Plantarum" became the standard edition of that earliest work on systematic botany and the edition that all serious scientific botanists of the 17th and 18th centuries will have studied. "Linnaeus, in the practice of his favourite art of systematizing, classified not only plants but the writers about them. The writers he distinguishes primarily as Botanists, and Plant Lovers, recognizing as Botanists only such as treat of plants from some philosophic or scientific point of view. Choosing his illustrations from annals of remote antiquity, he names among the earliest of the Greeks who wrote of plants Hippocrates; but because he wrote of plants only in the interests of medicine Linnaeus styles him Father of Medicine... Similarly Aristotle... is down in the Linnaean list of ancient celebrities as Prince of Philosophers. To Theophrastus, however, he accords the title Father of Botany. From this opinion, far from having been newly promulgated in Linnaeus's time, there has been no dissenting voice. On the contrary, Albert Haller, one of the most learned men in Europe in his day, and a botanist of such renown that Linnaeus held him in reverence, and also in some fear, denominates Theophrastus "the first of real botanists in point of time." Kurt Sprengel in the nineteenth century, having rehearsed the names of a long line of ancient authors who had written more or less concerning plants, says: "But the most illustrious of them all, and the true father of botany, was Theophrastus Eresius...." (Greene, Landmarks of Botanical History, I:128).It is no wonder that Linnaeus should find in Theophrastus the Father of his own field - The "Historia Plantarum" was not only the earliest work on systematic botany, it also contained Theophrastus' description of the formation of the plant seed, the earliest account known and the best that was made for 2000 years.Hunt: 240; Pritzel: 9197; BM: V:2091; Dibdin: II:498

The illustrations of these plants have been largely overlooked in botanical history, because of their incidental presence in a work which might not be expected to contain anything of the sort.

Some browning, scattered light spotting, a few small stains. Overall in very good to fine condition. ---- FIRST EDITION. This account of the struggle to restore Portuguese independence, written by a Spanish Augustinian who was imprisoned in Portugal, is full of bitter comments on the behavior of the Portuguese. Seyner is delighted to recount how the Dutch, having agreed to rent a fleet to the Portuguese, promptly commanded Prince Maurice of Nassau to take the whole Dutch fleet in Brazil and capture the Portuguese colonies of Angola and S. Thomé (pp. 123-6, 164-70). Seyner reports how the Jesuit Provincial in Rio de Janeiro conspired to overcome the pro-Spanish Captain General, the Marquês de Montalvão. The acclamation of D. João IV in Rio is described on pp 44-8. Seyner also details the treatment of Spanish monks and merchants from Buenos Aires, Potosí and Lima who happened to pass through Lisbon on their way to Spain, were relieved of the money and goods they were carrying, and were forced to trudge from one bureaucrat to another in an attempt to recover them.---- Palau 311492. @Exposicão Bibliográfia da Restauração I, 1424.

A brilliant mathematician, Torricelli was Galileo's assistant and companion during the last two years of the elder scientist's life, and he succeeded Galileo in the post of grand ducal mathematician. In his Opera Geometrica, published at the expense of Grand-Duke Ferdinand II, Torricelli elucidated and diffused the difficult geometry of Cavalieri (see lot 359), thereby gaining himself widespread recognition throughout Europe. The first part, compiled around 1641, 'studies figures arising through rotation of a regular polygon inscribed in or circumscribed about a circle around one of its axes of symmetry. Torricelli. classifies such rotation solids into six kinds, studies their properties, and presents some new propositions and new metrical relations for the round bodies of elementary geometry. As Torricelli acquired increasing familiarity with the method of indivisibles, he reached the point of surpassing the master - as Cavalieri himself said' (DSB). In the second section, De moto gravium, Torricelli continued Galileo's study of the parabolic motion of projectiles. The treatise includes several significant contributions to mechanics, the calculus and ballistics. It also 'refers to the movement of water in a paragraph so important that Ernst Mach proclaimed Torricelli the founder of hydrodynamics' (DSB). This states 'Torricelli's theorem' in which Torricelli determined that the efflux velocity of a jet of liquid spurting from a small hole at the bottom of a vessel is equal to that which a single drop of the liquid would have if it could fall freely in a vacuum from the level of the top of the liquid.

First titlepage cropped at foot affecting the date which has been written in above; 2nd titlepage better centered and complete with all publisher's details and date 1644. Ownership E.W. Sergeant to blank area of first title, the folding plates are remargined to outer edge, paper slightly browned & some pages faintly dampmarked, but supple and strong without any tears or writing. Printed side notes and pointing hands are all complete with a margin. Both first editions published by Harper but sold by different booksellers thus there is probably no precedence. *The author was a medical doctor and writer. This is the first book specifically dealing with sign language and with gesture illustrations. Bulwer was intereted in schooling for the deaf and suggests that manual alphabets could be "ordered to serve for privy ciphers for any secret intimation" (Chironomia, p149). Chirologia shows examples of manual gestures, their meanings and their uses drawing on a wide range of sources from literature, religion and Medicine. Chironomia, which the author considered as a separate work, was the result (Wing B5462A & B5467 ESTC r14061, Garrison & Morton 3346-7). 1 volume.
