      Paris: Chez Mathieu Guillemot, 1644. Fine. Chez Mathieu Guillemot, Paris 1644, in-folio (23x35,5cm), (22) 204pp. ; 196pp., deux parties reliées en un volume. - New edition, adorned with two titles allegorical frontispiece unsigned and wrapped in water colors, 458 icons (147 for the first half and 284 for the second) in-text intaglio engraved by Jacques de Bie from the research and Cesar Ripa figures, highlighted in color (some are slightly tinted gold) and erased, as well as head and tail-pieces themselves also enhanced. Copy admirable, rare, fully adorned in water colors. Full brown calf at the time. Back with five nerves decorated coffered and gilded finials. Shaved head cover, scuffs and two corners bumped. Ripa's work is the most famous iconographic books, complete allegorical images to artists directory. Born of Christian and medieval art, and mixed with the contribution of the rebirth of the ancient art of the old regime is essentially programmatic; galore using symbols and pictures to create a secret meaning, reading and deciphering; art had thus quickly need emblems manuals, inexhaustibly manna to execute the works. Thus, according to the work of "Emile Male and Iconological Erwin Panofsky studies, intelligence of European painting of the XVII and XVIII centuries is inseparable from the book Ripa. This man originally published in 1593 and his guide translating Baldwin of 1636 illustrated, and enjoyed multiple editions, quickly became not only a must, but a standard for all future book of emblems. Bookplate the library I. Gosselin. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale de la première version française complète d'après Ripa, illustrée de deux frontispices ainsi que de 613 figures in-texte en taille douce gravées par Jacques de Bie d'après les recherches et les figures de Cesar Ripa. Reliure en plein veau brun moucheté de l'époque. Dos à six nerfs orné de caissons et fleurons dorés. Toutes tranches mouchetées rouges. Epidermures, mors et nerfs frottés. Quelques pâles mouillures marginales ; plusieurs déchirures sans manque sur le second frontispice. Mors fendu mais toujours solidaire, quelques frottements et coins un peu émoussés. Répertoire complet d'images allégoriques pour les artistes, l'oeuvre de Ripa est le plus célèbre des livres iconographiques. Issu de l'art chrétien et médiéval, et mélangé à l'apport de la Renaissance et de l'Antiquité, l'art de l'Ancien régime est essentiellement programmatique ; Il utilise à foison les symboles et les images afin de créer un sens secret, une lecture et un déchiffrage ; l'art eut ainsi très vite besoin de manuels d'emblèmes, d'une manne inépuisable afin de réaliser les oeuvres. C'est ainsi que selon les travaux d"Émile Mâle et les études iconologiques d'Erwin Panofsky, l'intelligence de la peinture européenne des XVIIè et XVIIIè siècles est inséparable du livre de Ripa. Ce dernier fit initialement paraître son guide en 1593 et la traduction de Baudouin de 1636, illustrée, et qui connut de multiples éditions, devint rapidement non seulement incontournable, mais un étalon pour tout livre future d'emblèmes.

        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

      Presso Christoforo Tomasino, Venetia 1644 - Hardcover. Small folio. (xii) + 570 pp. (+ ivpp.) Contemporary pig-skin (?) over limp paper boards, bound without as spine, so that the bands to which the gatherings are sewn, and the gatherings themselves, are visible. Title page vignette, and two portraits; numerous decorative head and tail-pieces and capitals. Approx 180 woodcut illustrations in-text. Five parts in one volume. This work was written in Latin and first published in 1586 under the title "De humana physiognomia." It saw 19 editions before 1701, and has been translated into Italian (1598; translation by Salvatore Scarano), German (1651), French (1655), and English (1817). This tenth Italian edition is complete with a large number of intriguing (and humorous) woodcuts. Giambattista della Porta - also known as Giovanni Battista Della Porta - (1535? &#150; 1615) was an Italian scholar, polymath and natural philosopher, who lived in Naples during the height of the Italian Renaissance. He wrote widely, on topics as diverse as agriculture, alchemy, astrology, mathematics, meteorology, optics, and occult and natural philosophy, and is best known for his compendious "Magiae Naturalis" (1558). The present work "Della fisionomia dell'huomo" (On the Physiognomy of Humans) was written in Latin and first published in 1586 under the title "De humana physiognomia." It saw 19 editions before 1701, and has been translated into Italian (1598; translation by Salvatore Scarano), German (1651), French (1655), and English (1817). This tenth Italian edition is complete with a large number of intriguing (and humorous) woodcuts. In it della Porta and others summarise and expand upon previous works on physiognomy; the "science" of assessing a person's character or personality on the basis of his or her outer appearance, especially that of the face. The practice was widely accepted by the philosophers of ancient Greece, but had fallen into disrepute by the Renaissance. della Porta's work played an important part in reinvigorating it, and is said to have been a significant influence on the Swiss 18th century pastor Johann Kaspar Lavater, whose own work sparked something of a revival of the subject in the 18th and 19th centuries, as well as the 19th century criminologist Cesare Lombroso. It is interesting that della Porta also links it with astrology, with a chapter of the "fourth book" linking the two. The boards are quite rubbed, and front endpapers are split at the hinge, although the board is still firmly attached by the bands. The front pastedown and endpapers have some worm trails, and there is some minor worming to the last page or two, with the loss of one or two letters or numerals. A small number of pages are inexplicably somewhat darker than the rest, but overall generally the paper is fresh, clean and supple and the book is in VG+ antiquarian condition.

      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
