In Venetia, per li Turrini. 1646 - [16], 292 [ie 192]. 12mo. Old waterstain visible on original coarse grain paper wrappers, not intrusive in text. Hand-lettered backstrip, sl. worn. Unrecorded by Copac, which only notes editions of 1642 and 1654 (although another was published in Turin also in 1646). Assarino, 1602?72, was a Genoese writer, probably born in Potosì in Bolivia, who led a turbulent life as a political informer, with several spells in prison. He compiled Il Sincero, the first Italian newspaper, and historical works, such as Delle rivoluzioni di Catalogna (1644) and Delle Guerre e Successi d'Italia (1662). His extremely successful novels included La Stratonica (1635), which was translated into French, English, and German, and L'Almerinda (1640), later expanded and completely reworked in I Giuochi di Fortuna (1655).

SCHOOTEN, Frans van.
Leiden: Elzevir, 1646. First edition. A very fine copy of this beautiful book concerned with the so-called organic description (or generation) of curves. This was an important topic, since in order to determine the point of intersection of curves in the construction of geometrical solutions, it was natural to think of the curves as generated by a continuous motion driven by some instrument. It is the continuity of the motion generating the curves that guarantees a point of intersection can be located exactly. Descartes had devised several mechanisms for generating curves. In De Organica, which Newton read, van Schooten had presented several mechanisms for generating conic sections. This research field was connected with practical applications, for instance, lens grinding and sundial design, but it was also sanctioned by classical tradition and motivated the highly abstract needs underlined by Descartes. Newton was able to devise a mechanism for generating conics and to extend it to higher-order curves. In this work Schooten gave the now standard method of drawing an ellipse with the piece of string whose ends are attached to two pegs, and it is the first printed work that contains a mechanical description of the ellipsis, parabola and hyperbola without considering them as conics. The book is among the 24 highlights of the Elsevier Heritage Collection. *Honeyman 2807; Macclesfield 873; Willems 607. 4to (208 x 157 mm), contemporary vellum, pp. [16], 117 [3:blank]. Fine and clean, entirely unrestored. [Attributes: First Edition]

Boards scuffed, hinges starting, spine and corners repaired, foxing to some leaves, heavier in places. A respectable copy. Sir Thomas Browne delighted in the discussion of fables, and painstakingly applied himself to the discovery of the truth behind them, and the more marvellous the story, the more he enjoyed the investigation of it. His fame for encyclopedic knowledge was firmly established during his lifetime, and his assistance was frequently sought on scientific or antiquarian inquiries. He was one of few men of his era to have read Dante's 'Inferno,' which was also a source of inspiration to him. Although he professed his anxiety to dispel popular superstitions, he believed in astrology, alchemy, witchcraft, and magic, and the Ptolemaic system of astronomy. An unfortunate practical illustration of his credulity occured in 1664, when Amy Duny and Rose Cullender were being tried as witches. Browne declared 'that the fits were natural, but heightened by the devils cooperating with the malice of the witches, at whose instance he did the villainies,' and he cited some recent similar cases in Denmark. It has been suggested that this comment directly led to a conviction of witchcraft for both women. Keynes [73].
