Based in part on his then unpublished work Le monde, which treated the creation and function of the universe in completely mechanistic terms, Descartes' Principia provides a systematic statement of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. "In August 1640, Desargue … [Click Below for Full Description]

Plein vélin souple d'époque à rabats, dos lisse titré à l'encre, lacets de peau (petit manque de cuir aux lacets). Edition Originale de cette rare impression de la ville aragonaise de Huesca. Saint Juste et Saint Pasteur étaient des enfants morts en martyrs sous Dioclétien, et dont les restes étaient conservés à Huesca où on leur donna en 1570 une nouvelle sépulture. Cet ouvrage composé en leur mémoire, décrit leur reliques ainsi que diverses antiquités conservées dans la ville. L'auteur Juan Francisco Andres de Uztarroz (1606-1653), poète et historien espagnol fut notamment historiographe de l'Aragon et de Felipe IV (1646). Il tenait chez lui l'un des grands salons poétiques de l'époque: "Los Anhelantes", vivier intellectuel dans lequel il rencontra de nombreux auteurs qui furent ses protégés, en particulier Balthasar Gracian dont l'imprimeur du présent ouvrage, Juan Nogués, fut notamment l'éditeur. L'illustration se compose d'un frontispice et de 3 curieuses planches dépliantes gravées, représentant une relique de Saint Juste (une chaussure) et plusieurs vases anciens. Ex-libris ancien gravé sur bois et contrecollé au dos du titre: "D. Judae Sanz, a Larrea".

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.

First edition of this influential Chinese ophthalmological work, which records 108 types of eye diseases and has more than 300 prescriptions as well as illustrations and plentiful data. The book discusses medical records of ophthalmology and the theory of five orbiculi (illustrated in the first volume), the eight regions of the whites of the eyes, and the relationship between the eyes and Zangfu channels and collaterals. The book introduces acupuncture in ophthalmology and cataractopiesis with a golden needle in detail. There are sections on acupuncture and moxibustion for treatment of headaches. Many pharmaceutical recipes are also provided. Vol. 4 contains an illustration of five kinds of golden needles. The full-page illustrations in the sixth volume depict various patients, their case histories, relevant pressure points (with details of how often to insert the needles), infected eyes filled with pus, wounds to the eye, etc. The later wrappers state this is a revised edition although the text is a first printing. Nice set. As usual, the paper is lightly browned. ? Paul U. Unschuld, Medicine in China: a History of Ideas (University of California Press, 1985), p. 147.

Pietro TESTA detto "Il Lucchesino" (Lucca 1611 - Roma 1650)
1644. Acquaforte, 1644, firmata in lastra in basso al centro. Esemplare nel terzo stato di quattro, edito da Giovanni Giacomo de Rossi. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana "doppio cerchio e giglio", con piccoli margini, piccoli strappi di carta restaurati nella parte superiore, nel complesso in ottimo stato di conservazione. L'opera viene realizzata dal Testa quale omaggio al neo - eletto pappa Innocenzo X Pamphili, che nel 1644 veniva a succedere a Urbano VIII. La composizione del Testa è incentrata sul mezzo busto del nuovo pontefice, circondato da putti inneggianti alla Pace, uno dei quali porge una corona d'alloro al dio Tevere, seduto in maniera classica in primo piano sulla destra. La presenza della colombo e dell'olivo, simboli di pace, nello stemma dei Pamphili si prestano a celebrare il ritorno alla quiete dopo i lunghi anni della disastrosa guerra di Castro, negli ultimo periodo del papato di Urbano VIII. Bibliografia: Bartsch 31; Bellini 25 III/IV. Dimensioni 425x390. Etching, 1644, signed on lower centre plate. Example in the third state of four, published by Giovanni Giacomo de Rossi. Excellent work, printed on contemporary laid paper with "double circle and fleur - de - lis" watermark, small margins, small tears perfectly repaired on upper part, in very good condition. Testa realized this work to pay homage to the brand - new pope Innocenzo X Pamphili, who was succeeding Urbano VIII in 1644. The composition has been realized around the bust of the new pope, surrounded by putti celebrating Peace; one of them offers a laurel wreath to … [Click Below for Full Description]

FARINATI, Paolo
30 double-page engraved plates, including the title, each on a stub. 8vo, cont. speckled calf, spine gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. Paris: A. Bosse, 1644. First edition of this very appealing and handsome series of engravings by Abraham Bosse after designs by the Italian artist and draughtsman Paolo Farinati (1524-1606). Farinati's chiaroscuro drawings were often used as "modelli." The plates depict small cupids and angels (22 plates) and eight plates of masks. Paolo Farinati was a highly productive painter and draughtsman from Verona, whose paintings are preserved in many churches. "Farinati's drawings are held in high esteem and , according to Mariette…he was a gifted draughtsman whose compositions show the influence of Paolo Veronese, though he fails to match Veronese's expressiveness of light and refinement."-Benezit, Vol. 5, p. 474. Appended at the end are four additional plates from Bosse's Différentes manères de Dessiner et Peindre (1667) and the suite of four double-page engravings for his Les Quatre Éléments (1630?). These four are entitled "Lefeu," LAir," "Leau," and "La Terre." A very fine copy in fresh condition from the Macclesfield library. The engravings are richly inked. Early engraved bookplate with legend at foot: "This Book is to be sold by J. Groenewegen & A. vander Hoeck in the Strand." They were Dutch emigré booksellers who issued catalogues in London ca. 1723-24.

XU, Zeng-Shing.
[China n.d. ca. late 18-early 19 century]. Silk mounted hand scroll, brocade gold silk cover, purple silk ribbon tie, lovely lacquer & mother-of-pearl ends, 2.2 meters long, 25 cm. wide continuous color painting on paper, stiff backing. *** ***A GREAT QING DYNASTY HAND-PAINTED EROTIC SCROLLSIGNED BY THE ARTIST XU, WITH HIS SEAL This is a charming and lovely hand painted scroll from the Great Qing Dynasty [1644-1912]. It shows ten "positions" of making love. The work begins as a series of views showing a couple engaging in different positions of love- making: while reclining on a wooden lounge. Each view shows the couple in degrees of partial nudity, revealing their genitals and the shows the woman's lovely "Golden Lotus" or bound feet. In between some views are flowers, or a young girl attendant who assisting in pushing the master while he pumps the object of his affection, also shown is a pair of tiny Pekinese dogs making love. The last scene shows the old master with two girls as he engages both. The girls have beautiful and traditional coiffeur with flowers or other hair decorations, they all wear lovely silk embroidered gowns, and wear jewelry. An early work done in light pastel gouache, a skillful hand with much attention to detail. By and large a very nice example of Chinese erotic painting. The style is that of the late 18th or early 19th century. CONDITION: A bit of minor restoration at the edges, with a few small holes or cracks, but with solid backing. Please review the photos posted to our website. Please request our erotic Chinese art catalog for other ori … [Click Below for Full Description]
