1644. Venezia: Venetiis, apud Paulum Baleonium, 1644. 4to.; 20 hojas, 305 pp. (numeradas desde la 293 a la 598) para ésta Segunda Parte. Más un estado plegado que contiene "Series Morborum Muliebrium, quae etiam continet Indicem Capitum Secundae Partis". Encuadernación en plena piel marbreada, de la época, con lomera ornada. Rodrigo de Castro, nacido en Lisboa en el seno de familia judía de tradición médica (uno de sus tios, Emmanuel Vaëz atendió a cuatro reyes de Portugal) estudió Medicina en Evora y en Salamanca donde recibió los grados de Doctor en Filosofía y en Medicina, para ulteriormente completar sus estudios y practicar en Lisboa, como jóven promesa, con posterioridad a 1580, tiempo en el cual le llegó una propuesta de Felipe II, Rey de Portugal a la sazón, para realizar un viaje a la India con el propósito de recoger hierbas medicinales y estudiarlas científicamente. Rechazó la oferta, sintiendose perseguido ya por la Inquisición, y huyó a Amberes, donde se instaló con su mujer, Catalina Rodriguez, y sus dos hijos, alcanzando allí una alta estima por algunas curas afortunadas, no obstante lo cual, a la reestablecida ocupación española de los Paises Bajos, sintiendose nuevamente inseguro, se trasladó al Norte de Holanda durante algunos años, hasta que un colega, portugués y posiblemente familiar, Enrico Rodriguez, le indujo en 1594 a pasar definitivamente a Hamburgo, la capital hanseatica, ciudad de la que hizo su hogar permante hasta su muerte y a la que dedicó sus devociones y sacrificios, como lo prueba su actuación durante la Peste de 1596.

Mexia Pedro (Pietro Messia) - Dolce Ludovico (traduttore)
appresso il Barezzi, 1644. In-4° antico (227x160mm), pp. (56), 1072, (2); alla p. 1063, con frontespizio autonomo e paginazione continua, "Aggiunta alle Vite de gl'Imperadori; nella quale si narra la Vita di Ferdinando Secondo, e la Coronatione di Ferdinando Terzo. Data in luce da Paolo Baglioni". Legatura moderna m. pelle con titolo in oro su tassello su dorso a nervi. Numerosissimi ritratti di imperatori in medaglioni incisi in xilografia in principio di ciascuna biografia. Fregi tipografici incisi in xilografia. Amplissimo indice preliminare su doppia colonna. Alcuni aloni e lavoretti di tarlo non lesivi del testo. Un timbro di privato possesso. Buon esemplare entro custodia moderna. Reimpressione riveduta e aumentata della traduzione (o libero adattamento) che il Dolce fece della "Historia Imperial y Cesarea" del Mexia. Come nella tradizione storiografica rinascimentale, nell'opera vengono considerati imperatori romani prima gli imperatori bizantini, fino all'anno 800, e quindi gli imperatori del Sacro Romano Impero sino a Leopoldo Ignazio I. Il Mexia (Siviglia, 1496-ivi, 1551) fu storico, moralista e poligrafo, autore fra l'altro di Dialogos o Coloquios ispirati a quelli erasmiani. Protetto da Carlo V, che lo nominò proprio storiografo, lasciò, tra le sue opere manoscritte, una biografia del sovrano spagnolo. "Il Mexia è tipico rappresentante dell'enciclopedismo scientifico del Rinascimento, dove si perpetuava, nonostante i nuovi acquisti, una mentalità tradizionale, ancora scolastica ed espositiva" (anonimo in Enciclopedia Italiana, XXIII, 139). Il Dolce (Venezia, 150 … [Click Below for Full Description]

MATTHEW PARIS
Parisiis, Apud viduam Guillielmi Pele, 1644. Printer's mark+ engraved print of Matthew Paris + a few engravings in the text + some small vignettes. Leather. Gr. 6to. (XXVIII), 680, (116), (XII), 215, (9) pp. *spine on the right side damaged, edges covers slightly damaged, otherwise good condition*.'Matthew Paris (d. 1259?) is commonly regarded as England's greatest medieval historian. The 'Historia Anglorum', begun in 1250, is an abridgement, concentrating on English history, of the 'Chronica Majora', but it also includes some additional material for the period A.D. 1067-1253. Matthew Paris became a monk of St. Albans in 1217, and succeeded Roger Wendover as historiographer of that abbey in 1236. He drew his information from many documentary sources including papal bulls and royal letters and from conversations with eye-witnesses of the events narrated. (...) His style is graphic; his view is broad; and his opinions are expressed with fervour. He condems what he regarded as abuses of the court and church; he rebukes pope, king, nobles, and clergy, when he deems them worthy of blame. Matthew was a man of many interests and attainments'. E. Graves. A bibliography of English history to 1485. Oxford, 1975, 2941

Contemporary full calf with the initial blank (generally found missing), a well done rebacking, rubbed along the hinges, title page browned, the other pages only browned primarily at the margins. All in all a very good and more importantly complete copy. Ex-libris University of Cambridge***** "Biathanatos was written during a lengthy period of unemployment, during which Donne suffered from low spirits. In 1608, around the time that Biathanatos was originally composed, Donne wrote to his friend Henry Goodyer, 'Every Tuesday I make account that I turn a great hourglass, and consider that a week's life is run out since I writ. But if I ask myself what I have done in the last watch, or would do in the next, I can say nothing.' Although John Sym's Lifes Preservative Against Self-Killing (London, 1637) was published earlier, Biathanatos was the first book written in the Western tradition on the subject of suicide."

SANCTA CLARA, Abraham à.
1644. First edition of a German emblem book addressing virtues and vices in 100 emblems, compiled by the German preacher Abraham a Sancta Clara (born Johan Ulrich Mergerle; 1644 - 1709). As the title states, the book's purpose is to refresh the reader's virtues and to deter from vices by way of emblems. The concepts are explained in well-known fables and accessible symbols and allegories, like the sun, moon, fire, sea, weather, seasons, metals, gems, animals etc. Each concept is illustrated in an emblem accompanied by a motto in Latin and a poem in German and Latin.

Based in part on his then unpublished work Le monde, which treated the creation and function of the universe in completely mechanistic terms, Descartes' Principia provides a systematic statement of his metaphysics and natural philosophy. The first part, De principiis cognitionis humanae (Of the Principles of Human Knowledge) deals with the nature of motion, rest, force, and action. He defines motion in Book II and distinguishes the difference between translation and 'the force that brings about this translation.' Descartes was careful in the Principia to qualify his mechanistic Copernican views with the idea that all motion is relative."His vortical theory allowed him to argue that since the earth is at rest … [Click Below for Full Description]

Anselme-Boece de BOODT (ou BOOT)
First edition of the French translation, translated by François Bachou from the Gemmarum et lapidarum historia (1609) of the Flemish doctor and naturalist Anselm de Boodt. The work has 45 woodcut illustrations in text and retains the two folding plates showing the "Division of Precious & Common Stones." Retaining also the errata leaf, often missing.Contemporary red morocco. Richly gilt spine in five compartments, evidently 18th century title-piece in light brown morocco. Triple gilt fillet frame to covers and gilt fleurons to corners. Gilt dentelle surrounding the inside of covers, all edges gilt.Headpiece slightly rubbed, three corners a little bumped. One miniscule wormhole touching outside margin of one edge of first few gatherings, a few pages spotted, a very good copy.A major, pioneering and decisive work of gemology and mineralogy. First published right at the beginning of the 17th century, in 1609, it is both treatise and manual. Anselm de Boodt describes and writes about no fewer than 106 minerals and gems, and proposes a system of classification for them (hardness, composition, color, clarity). He relies not only on Classical sources (Pliny's Natural History, the Materia Medica of Dioscorides, Galen's Simple Medicines and Alberto Magno's De Mineralibus), but also the fruit of Renaissance research (by Césalpin, Gessner, Scaliger, and so on), and spends some time explaining the virtues of each stone, be they medical, magical, or otherOne will also find in this remarkable work practical information on the size of stones and how to spot fakes, a summary of mineralogica … [Click Below for Full Description]

CURABELLE, Jacques.
Paris: de l'imprimerie de M. & I. Henault, et se vendent, chez F. l'Anglois dit Chartres, 1644. First edition, complete with its very rare supplement, of this polemic against Girard Desargues (1591-1661). Important for containing literal extracts from Desargues' Brouillon Projet, the work also contains the first printed reference to 'La Pasqualle', the mystic hexagram, published in 1640 by the sixteen year-old Pascal in a broadside of which only one copy survives. Desargues' most important work, which constitutes the birth of modern projective geometry, was Brouillon projet d'une atteinte aux événemens des rencontres du Cone avec un Plan. "The Brouillon Projet on conics, of which he published fifty copies in 1639, is a daring projective presentation of the theory of conic sections; although considered at first in three-dimensional space, as plane sections of a cone of revolution, these curves are in fact studied as plane perspective figures by means of involution, a transformation that holds a place of distinction in the series of demonstrations" (DSB IV 47). Desargues intended his work to appeal not only to theoreticians but also practical men, and this perhaps explains his use of an original vocabulary which, however, made the pamphlet very difficult to read. It exerted little influence at the time, and disappeared from view (in fact, it was thought to be lost until a copy was found in 1951). Nevertheless, its methods formed the basis of the new techniques of projective geometry developed in the nineteenth century by Poncelet and his followers.

THOMAS, Augusta Read b. 1964
The present composition is not included in the works list on Thomas's website. Bash (1644-1694) was an Edo-period Japanese haiku poet. "The music of Augusta Read Thomas (b. 1964) is majestic, it is elegant, it is lyrical, it is "boldly considered music that celebrates the sound of the instruments and reaffirms the vitality of orchestral music" (Philadelphia Inquirer). Her deeply personal music is guided by her particular sense of musical form, rhythm, timbre, and harmony. But given this individuality, her music is affected by history — in Thomas's words, "Old music deserves new music and new music needs old music." For Thomas, this means cherishing her place within the musical tradition and giving credit to those who have forged the musical paths she follows and from which she innovates. "You can hear the perfumes of my metaphorical grandparents," Thomas states. "There is a wonderful tradition that I adore, I understand, and care about, but I have my two feet facing forward." Thomas's vision toward the future, her understanding of the present, and her respect for the past is evident in her art. Most striking in her music, however, is its exquisite humanity and poetry of the soul. The notion that music takes over where words cease is hardly more true than in her musical voice." "Born in Glen Cove, New York, Thomas was appointed University Professor of Composition at the University of Chicago in 2011. University Professors are selected for internationally recognized eminence in their fields as well as for their potential for high impact across the University.
