Ancien clerc des finances, Pierre Moreau dessina et grava un nouveau jeu de caracteres cursifs mobiles a l'imitation de son ecriture, dite "ecriture financiere", reprenant la tradition inauguree au XVIe siecle avec le caractere de civilite. Bien que n'ayant pas ete admis au sein de la communaute des imprimeurs de Paris, il recut des lettres de privilege pour exploiter ses nouveaux caracteres et devint imprimeur du roi en 1643. Pierre Moreau imprima 33 livres jusqu'a sa mort survenue en 1648. Ses caracteres furent, par la suite, cedes a Denis Thierry, puis a Jacques Collombat; certains sont encore conserves au Cabinet des poincons de l'Imprimerie nationale.

Title page and preliminary section, 'to the reader' & Preface are missing about 12 pages. Evidence of considerable handling with edge wear and smudges, some close trimmed pages. On the front fly leaf is an inked inscription that this is the Edinburgh printing of 1644, which may be correct. Included is the "Appellation" & "Letter" to Queen Mary. An inked note on the fly leaf says this copy was given by Mrs. Laing, widow of Malcolm Laing, to 'J. B." in 1853. Since the inked name, Margaret Laing, 1819, is at the top of the 1st page of the Preface, this would seem to be accurate.

Spine leather has 6 raised bands, with 7 compartments. Armorial book plate of Baron Maule on verso. Seminary stamps. Internally very good, with clean, unmarked pages. <br><br>'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.

Impresa tipografica al titolo. Testatine, finalini e capilettera istoriati od ornati incisi su legno. Sparsi aloni marginali e bruniture, lievi quanto usuali. Bell'esemplare. Rarissima prima edizione di uno dei testi di maggiore importanza della letteratura antica sui Valdesi. L'opera è la seconda storia dei Valdesi in assoluto dopo quella del Perrin. "Le projet de cette nouvelle histoire des Vaudois fut conçu immédiatement après l'apparition de l'ouvrage insuffisant de Perrin... L'histoire de Gilles fait source pour les événements qui se sont passées de 1550 à 1640... Gilles doit être lu en regard de Rorengo, qui raconte, à un autre point de vue, les mêmes faits que lui, et qui cherche souvent à le refuter; mais sans succès" (Muston, p. 9). L'opera, notevole per esattezza, imparzialità ed equilibrio di giudizio, è improntata allo schema cronachistico tipico della storiografia del tempo.

He usues a scale of hardness expressed in three degrees and notes the crystalline forms of some minerals (triangular, quadratic, and hexangular). ... He enumerates about 600 minerals that he knows from personal observation, and describes their properties, values, imitations, and medical applications. There are also tables of values of diamonds according to their size and short description of the polishing of precious stones' (Wlodzimierz Hubicki in DSB).

Austine, Robert
London: Rich. Cotes for Joh. Bellamy. 1644. First Edition. Hardcover. Three quarter calf over marbled boards, some bumping to corners, spine ends and corners rubbed, bookplate on front pastedown, title page within border of printer's flowers, pamphlet trimmed close to text at upper margin but with no loss of text, some toning to paper but text remain clear and unmarked. (Wing A4253), Robert Austine (bap.1593-1661) was am Anglican clergyman and political pamphleteer. This current work is his best known. In it he seeks to show that it was the Oath of Allegiance to the Crown that compelled Parliament and its supporters to take up arms against King Charles I. While such an argument sounds strange to us now, it was one which had been deployed in various forms in both the run up to and in the early stages of the Civil War. It seems even those opposed to the King either believed in the ideal of monarchy or felt the need to assert that they did and so disagreements with the King were attributed to his 'evil counsellors' rather than to any action of the King himself. Austine follows this pattern and in his 'Address to the Reader' states that he is motivated only by patriotism and that he looked forward to the time when the king would ‘return in safety and his throne be established in judgement and justice’. , 4to , [12] 49 [1] pp .

A fine copy, heavily annotated in a contemporary hand, of this "masterwork of one of the most original geniuses in the history of science and medicine" (Neville). PMM 135; Norman 1048; Heirs of Hippocrates 409 & 409; Garrison-Morton 665.<br/><br/> "Helmont, who was himself an alchemist, marks the transition from alchemy to chemistry in the modern sense, and it is not surprising to find that he was much studied by Robert Boyle who adopted many of his ideas. Helmont therefore stands at the very beginning of the chemical revolution which was completed by Lavoisier in the eighteen century." (PMM). "Helmont was one of the founders of biochemistry. He was the first to realize the physiological importance of ferments and gases, and indeed invented the word 'gas'. He introduced the gravimetric idea in the analysis of urine. Helmont published very little during his life. The above work is a collection of his writings , issued by his son, Franz Mercurius. (Garrison-Morton). <br/><br/> "A Belgian mystic, Helmont was nonetheless the most prominent chemist of the first half of the seventeenth century. Originally an alchemist and a follower of Paracelsus in that his outlook was universal, he himself marks the transition from alchemy to the science of chemistry in the modern sense" (Heirs of Hippocrates). "In this work, Helmont established his name as one of the founders of biochemistry, although some authorities believe that he is perhaps overrated because of his vacillations between mysticism and science. In any event, his discovery of digestive juices in the stomach and intestine, and … [Click Below for Full Description]
