All'interno, numerosi diagrammi incisi. PRIMA RARA EDIZIONE, basata sull'opera del fratello dell'autore, Salomon de Caus "Les raisons des forces mouvantes avec diverses machines", Francoforte, 1615. L'opera descrive e illustra diversi automata musicali, orologi a comando idraulico, una pompa antincendio, diverse pompe e una chiusa. Isaac de Caus fu un paesaggista e architetto francese. Arrivò in Inghilterra nel 1612 per proseguire il lavoro del suo celebre fratello, Salomon. È noto per il suo intervento a Wilton House e Lincoln's Inn. È stato l'architetto responsabile della realizzazione del progetto di Inigo Jones per Covent Garden. Dopo una prefazione in cui l'autore presenta alcuni concetti generali, tratta della conduzione dell'acqua con 19 dimostrazioni, descrivendo delle macchine idrauliche. Si basa sul principio della comprimibilità dell'aria e della incomprimibilità sull'acqua, combinata con la pressione atmosferica. In un periodo in cui le scienze fisiche e meccaniche erano agli albori, Isaac de Caus era ancora ossessionato dalla natura del vuoto. Intitolata "Forze in mov … [Click Below for Full Description]

QUARLES, Francis

Francis Quarles (1592 - 1644), English poet.

First published in 1640 in 24mo setting, this third edition is the first in a duodecimo format. All early editions are rare, and this third edition, is no exception; ESTC records copies at BL, Cambridge, Oxford and Princeton only. ESTC R220612. Not in Grolier, Wither to Prior (c/f 710/711).

"One of the most important sources of knowledge of events in Europe between 1235 and 1259" (Encyclopaedia Britannica). "Les relations qu'il eut à la même époque avec un grand nombre de personnages savants et distingués qui avaient beaucoup voyagé, notamment avec le médecin Rauulphe Besace, avec le juif Àron d'York, et avec le maître de l'hôpital de Jérusalem, Guillaume de C'hàteauueuf, lui permirent de réunir des renseignements et des documents d'un grand intérêt. Poète, orateur, théologien, historien, Matthieu Paris avait eu outre des connaissances en peinture et en architecture et passait pour fort habile en mécanique" (Larousse). Beau portrait gravé de l'auteur à pleine page. Très bon exemplaire. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Cioranescu 17898. Palau 47237. Édition originale, très rare. Ouvrage important, justifiant les droits de la couronne sur les régions du sud pyrénéen (Barcelone et le Roussillon), alors sous domination catalane. L'archevêque de Toulouse chargea le philologue et érudit français Pierre de Caseneuve (1591-1652) d'effectuer des recherches sur les anciennes coutumes de la province. Caseneuve dédie son ouvrage à Mazarin (deux ans après l'entrée de ce dernier au conseil du roi), le suppliant de mettre fin au conflit perpétuel entre Français et Espagnols portant sur ces territoires "usurpés", tout en lui montrant "sur quels fondements de raison et d'équité est appuyé [leur] recouvrement" par la France. Le mariage de Louis XIV avec l'infante Marie-Thérèse scellera une paix forcée entre les deux royaumes: les Pyrénées représenteront désormais la frontière entre la France et l'Espagne, les terres de Catalogne situées au nord-est de cette chaîne devenant la Catalogne française, telle qu'on la nomme encore de nos jours.

LILLY, Will[iam]
London printed for T.V. and are to be sold by I.S. in Little Brittaine, 1644. 4to., 16pp., with two large zodiacal text figures, generally a little spotted and browned, upper margin of title cut close, but with no loss of letters, errata slip pasted over blank foot of last page, bound in mid-19th century black half roan gilt, rather worn. A pretty good copy with the 19th century armorial bookplate of Sir William Grace, Baronet.> First edition. 1644 saw the beginning of Lilly's long series of pamphlets of prophecy. In the present, his astrological predictions were vague but portentously gloomy. 'Upon a suddaine and unexpected accident, the dissipation and dissolving of some misterious close consultation and mischievous plot against our State and Common-wealth is portended; the disunion and disagreement of the projectors amongst themselves, and all this is forraigne parts as well as in England: a renting in peeces or mutinous disturbance of some monarchy neare hand, or some Austrian family or Principality, &c. A commotion of the meanest sort of people against some principall man, or majistracy: Losse to Spaine; That we English with our Armies shall travers all the in land countries of this Kingdom, &c. This is all I either can or dare say. M.L.' 1644 marked the third phase of the English Civil War, with victories for the Royalists at Copredy Bridge and Lostwithiel and a major defeat at Marston Moor. Lilly's populist predictions and pseudo-scientific prognostications sold like hot-cakes. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Soria, Francisco de (O.P.), Sermón predicado en la solemne octava, que la Congregación del Santo Oficio celebrò en el Real Convento de S. Domingo, à los desagravios de Christo ofendido en su Imagen, Lisboa, Officina de Domingos Lopes Rosa, 1644. 8º. (19 x 14 cm.), 1 h. + 15 folios. Encuadernación en papel de aguas moderno. Segunda edición de esta pieza oratoria centrada en el famoso caso del "Cristo de las Injurias", también conocido como el "Santo Cristo de la Paciencia": en 1629 se acusó a un grupo de judeoconversos portugueses de haberse reunido en una casa en la Calle de las Infantas de Madrid para azotar y ultrajar a un cristo y una imagen de la virgen. Ese mismo año se predicó en la corte madrileña un Sermón en desagravio. Tras la denuncia pertinente, se les condenó en el Auto de fe de 1632, en el que salieron cuarenta y cuatro reos, en su mayor parte quemados en persona o en efigie. El relato completo lo ofrecería Juan Gómez de Mora en su Auto de la fe celebrado en Madrid este año de 1632, en el que figura la relación de los penitenciados con su nombre, crimen y castigo. Como es de imaginar, este suceso hizo correr ríos de tinta, y se sucedieron múltiples sermones, panegíricos, autos y vespertinas, surgidos de la pluma de los más notables escritores de la época. Así, Juan Antonio de la Peña da luz su Discurso en exaltación de los improperios que padeció la sagrada imagen de Christo Nuestro Señor a manos de la perfidia judaica (1632); fray Hortensio Félix Paravicino publica su Jesucristo desagraviado o Oración evangélica de los ultrages de Jesucristo (1633 ); Calderón … [Click Below for Full Description]
