      Amsterdam, Louis Elzevier, 1648. ____ Première édition. Van Helmont, (Bruxelles, 1577-1644) célèbre iatrochimiste, s'est appuyé sur la théorie des "archées" de Paracelse pour en finir avec l'enseignement d'Aristote. Il a créé le mot "gaz", démontré le mécanisme de la combustion et découvert l'anhydride carbonique. En physiologie, il a découvert l'importance dans la digestion du suc gastrique et a été le précurseur de la neuro-endocrinologie. Relié à la suite : VAN HELMONT. Opuscula medica inaudita. I. De lithiasi. II. De febribus. III. De humoribus Galeni. IV. De peste. Editio secunda multo emendatior. Amsterdam, Elzevier, 1648. In-4 de (8), 110 pp., 1 f. blanc. 115, (1) pp. 88 pp. Ces opuscules sont reliés habituellement à la suite de l'ouvrage précédent et forment les oeuvres de Van Helmont, publiées par son fils Franciscus Mercurius.

Willems, Les Elzevier, N°1066 et 1067. ***** First edition. Printing and the Mind of Man 135 : "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." (. "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." (G-M). In-4.

III,153; Willems 1066; Garrison-Morton 665 - FIRST COLLECTED EDITION; second edition of Opuscula medica inaudita. "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. The above work is a collection of his writings, issued by his son" (Garrison-Morton). "Helmont devoted his life to exploring the first principles of nature through chemistry. He is best remembered as the discoverer of gas, a term he coined to describe the 'specific smokes' that remain after the combustion of solids and fluids; among the gases he identified were carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, chlorine gas and sulphur dioxide. He denied that metals dissolved in acid were either destroyed or transmuted, stating that such metals were recoverable in their original quantities, and correctly identifying the process of precipitation. Like Paracelsus, he rejected traditional humoral pathology and advocated an ontological concept of disease, regarding each disease as a specific entity caused by a specific pathogenic agent. He demonstrated that acid is the agent in animal digestion and came near to identifying it as hydrochloric acid; he also identified the causes of asthma and correctly described fever as a part of the body's natural healing process... Though separately paginated 'Opuscula medica inaudita' is considered a part of the whole volume, as indicated by the 'Index tractatum' on 5*5 - 5*6. Originally published as a separate work in 1644, 'Opuscula medica inaudita' contains reprints of Helmont's treatises on the stone, on fevers, on the errors of humoral pathology, and on the plague" (Norman 1048). Very Good.

      First edition Bologna: G.B. Ferroni, 1648. An outstanding copy of this rare compendious scholastic mathematical work by the Jesuit mathematician Mario Bettini (1582-1657), encompassing all the major fields of mathematics, but paying special attention to geometry. Bettini's Aerarium covers a wealth of information not just in mathematics but also astronomical geometry, all of which had, as with Bettini's previous Apiaria of 1645, gone through the Collegio Romano's rigorous censorship under the eye of Christoph Grienberger (d.1636), who as Clavius' successor was responsible for enforcing adherence to Aristotle in matters of natural philosophy. European scientific thought during the period 1620-1660 was dominated by the revolutionary investigations of Galileo and others into the nature of the solar system. The Jesuits, as the chief proponents of traditional Aristotelian teachings, were hailed by many as the intellectual champions of the Catholic Church, the philosophical mathematical and Scriptural arguments of Jesuit writers against the Copernican theory of a sun-centered solar system the main driving forces of seventeenth century inquiry. At the beginning of the seventeenth century to understand meant to grasp regularities, and this knowledge was based largely on the accepted authority of ancient texts. However as the worldview expanded the certainty of such views began to diminish. For the philosophically well-educated mathematics appeared as one of the few refuges of eternal truths untainted by the possibility of such dissent. Jesuit colleges, such as that at Parma where Bettini taught, were among the most important and prestigious of all educational institutions in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The establishment of colleges was part of the Jesuits' Counter-Reformatory mission, which aimed to display to protestants an intimidating mixture of intellectual and cultural sophistication. Christopher Clavius (1537-1612), professor of mathematics at the Collegio Romano, was the prime mover in establishing mathematics in the curriculum, and as such his work powerfully shaped the style and attitudes manifested in subsequent Jesuit mathematical writings. By the early seventeenth century the mathematical disciplines had increasingly become a major part of the courses open for study offered by the Jesuits at their larger colleges. As the century progressed the Jesuit mathematicians carried out extensive research, producing major treatises and writing text books that were widely disseminated and read. How much of the present work can be accredited to Grienberger is difficult to say, but Bettini acknowledges the debt and clearly the astronomical typinium and other mechanical and measuring devices illustrating the work must be from his hand. Greinberger was one of the major mathematicians of the period, although little was published under his own name. The present work contains a Scholion Parergicon eulogising Grienberger, saying that he 'has no greater enemy than his own modesty, by which it has come to pass that his ingenious inventions have been neglected, and he will be consigned to oblivion'.

The second work records Tycho's observations of the great comet of 1577, and includes a description of his geoheliocentric theory of the universe. Tycho's observations of the supernova and comet led him to abandon the Ptolemaic concept of heavenly spheres and to deny the Aristotelian hypothesis that nothing new could be born in the heavens" Very Good.

        Exercitationes Duae Anatomicae De Circulatione Sanguinis Ad Joannem Riolanum filium. Rotterdam: Arnold Leers, 1649. [Bound, probably as issued, with:] Exercitatio anatomica de motu cordis & sanguinis. Ccum praefatione Zachariae Sylvii Medici Roterodamensis. Accesit Dissertatio de corde Doct. Jacobi de Back, Urbis Roterodami Medici ordinarii.

      Rotterdam: Arnold Leers, 1648. First edition of the Exercitationes, one of two issues published simultaneously (see below), of this rare and important work, a defence of his theory of the circulation of the blood against the Parisian physician Jean Riolan the younger. It is here bound after the first Rotterdam edition of De motu cordis itself, an important edition in its own right, as it contains a corrected text, with the preface by Zacharias Sylvius (1608-1664); it also contains the first edition of the substantial treatise by James de Back (1593-1657), Dissertatio de corde ... Annexa Appendix pro circulatione Harveiana. Keynes called the Exercitationes "one of [Harvey's] major contributions to medical science" (Life, p. 327). They were appended to later editions of De motu, as here; as Keynes says in his Bibliography of William Harvey, "The two treatises have for too long been considered merely an appendix to De motu - they are far more important than this." The only copy of the Exercitationes auctioned in the last forty years was the Haskell F. Norman copy, also bound with the Rotterdam edition of De motu (Christie's, June 1998, $9200, re-sold at Sotheby's PMM sale, October 1999, £6900). ?Norman 1007 & 1010. De motu cordis, first published in 1628, "is probably the most important book in the history of medicine. What Vesalius was to anatomy, Harvey was to physiology; the whole scientific outlook on the human body was transformed, and behind almost every important medical advance in modern times lies the work of Harvey" (Heirs of Hippocrates). The initial reaction to De motu in England was negative: in Brief Lives, Aubrey related, 'I have heard him say, that after his book of the circulation of the Blood came out, that he fell mightily in his practice, and that 'twas believed by the vulgar that he was crack brained; and all the physicians were against his opinion, and envied him; many wrote against him.' On the Continent, however, the reaction was more favourable. As Gjersten remarks, "it was in Holland that Harvey received his earliest and most committed support" (Classics of Science, p. 178). Indeed, the first recognition of Harvey's theory came from the extra-university circle around Sylvius and de Back in Rotterdam. "In 1648 Jacob de Back, physician-in-ordinary to Rotterdam, published his Dissertatio de corde, in which he argued that the heart was not the chief organ in the motion of the blood. 'It performeth the office of a steward. The heart in the body of an animal has no rule or principality.' De Back rightly regarded this as a correction of the De motu cordis, which he had read about 1633. Harvey might well have read de Back's book before writing his letters to Riolan, in which he uses very similar words" (Webster (ed.), The Intellectual Revolution of the Seventeenth Century, p. 174). "In 1649, after maintaining a twenty-one year silence against his detractors, Harvey published two essays addressed to Jean Riolan the younger, a Parisian professor of anatomy who had put forth a rival theory of the circulation in his Encheiridium anatomicum (1648). Harvey demolished Riolan's arguments point by point in the first essay, and in the second essay refuted Descartes, who had denied Harvey's claims about the movement of the heart" (Norman). Harvey's first essay is a reply to Riolan's Encheiridium, a copy of which he had presented to Harvey. In answer to Riolan's doubts about how and why the blood passes from the arteries to the veins through the body tissues, Harvey speculated that the arterial blood pressure forces the blood into the tissues, and that the action of the body's muscles then forces the blood into the smallest veins. To refute Riolan's claim that there are connecting passages, or anastomoses, that let blood flow from the arteries under certain abnormal conditions, Harvey suggested an experiment based on a traditional method of slaughtering animals which involved the opening of a large artery and letting the animal's blood drain as completely as possible. Harvey claimed that if the principal vein into the heart is tied off first, so that the blood cannot possibly enter the heart from the veins, then the animal's arteries will drain, but the veins will not. Riolan, however, could not face such vivisectional techniques; others including Primrose, Parigiano and Leichner had argued that vivisectional experiments were unnatural and produced unnatural results. When Harvey concluded this 'exercise' to Riolan with a formally polite tribute to Riolan and the Encheiridium, and put his name at its foot, it was probably as much as he intended to write. But before he sent it to the printer he read Riolan's Opuscula Anatomica Nova (London, 1649), in which Riolan marshals his criticisms of Harvey at greater length and, at the same time, proposes his own new doctrine of the circulation of the blood, which he confidently asserts will leave the medicine of Galen in good repair. According to Riolan's new doctrine, the blood which has been elaborated in the liver from the chyle (the old Galenic doctrine) is carried by the vena cava directly to the heart, where it is transformed into arterial blood. From the right ventricle it passes to the left through the minute openings in the middle septum and from the left ventricle into the aorta and its branches. When it has reached the outermost parts of the limbs, it returns through the veins which anastomose with the arteries. There is circulation only in the larger canals of the aorta and the vena cava which through their smaller branches supply nutriment to all parts of the body. The venous blood in the portal vein does not circulate, but flows back and forth, having as its companion the large coeliac vessel containing arterial blood which likewise does not circulate. Harvey therefore took up his pen again and wrote a second exercise to Riolan. In contrast to the first exercise, which was largely a verbal argument, the second is heavily experimental, with new experiments, and Harvey's deliberations about procedure in natural philosophy. Much of it is taken up with a history of the entire controversy over his doctrine of the circulation of the blood. Some scholars have suggested that this is based on notes he had made in 1641-1646 in response to earlier critics. "Harvey, in this second letter, seems almost to have forgotten Riolan and his tiresome quibbles. He was enjoying a temporary return to his old style of forceful statement supported by experimental, clinical and physiological experiences. It is one of his major contributions to medical science, and in the later pages he briefly recapitulated the theme of his former book De motu cordis. Near the end he referred to 'that very acute and ingenious man, René Descartes,' and his attempt to deny Harvey's beliefs about the movement of the heart ... In his concluding paragraph Harvey came back to Riolan, who had been so long in the background, and recommended him to try the simple experiment of ligating the portal vein, when he would find that exactly the same thing happened as when any other vein is tied - it will swell up below the ligature owing to the accumulation of blood flowing towards the liver, showing the absurdity of Riolan's idea of a backward circulation in the portal system. "With this parting shot, based, as always, on direct experiment, Harvey left his opponent. If this did not convince him, he must have thought, nothing would, and indeed it never did. Riolan remained to the end of his life unable to believe the evidence of his senses" (Keynes, Life, pp. 327-8). "This work [Exercitationes] was published simultaneously by Roger Daniels in Cambridge and by Arnold Leers in Rotterdam. Keynes states that the Rotterdam edition has traditionally been assumed to be printed after the Cambridge one, although he could find no evidence to support the claim. A third and last separate edition was published in Paris in 1650; after this date, the Exercitationes duae appeared only as an appendix to De motu cordis" (Norman).

Edizione bolognese delle Vite del Vasari (1511-1574) approntata sulla definitiva del 1568 e accresciuta di nuovi ritratti e delle note del curatore Carlo Manolessi. Dell'edizione del Dozza, la terza assoluta, esistono diverse tirature: questa riporta al primo volume la data 1648 e appartiene alla variante con 8 cc. iniziali. Per il ritratto del Vasari e le 144 xilografie con i ritratti degli artisti, disegnati dallo stesso Vasari e incisi dal Coriolano, furono utilizzati gli stessi legni della prima edizione figurata. "The Lives of the Most Excellent Painters, Sculptors and Architects' is the first modern history of art. It has made Vasari's name immortal? Vasari's excellent sense of narrative, however, and lively style combined with his wide personal acquaintance makes his "Lives" a vital contribution to our understanding of the character and psychology of the great artists of the Renaissance, a term (rinascita) which he was the first to use" (PMM).

        VIRGILO DEGUISAT, o l'Eneido burlesco.

      1648Toulouso [Toulouse], de l'Imprimario de Frances Boude, 1648. Quatre parties reliées en un volume petit in-quarto (165 X 226) demi-basane fauve marbrée, plats recouverts de papier marbré à la cuve, dos cinq nerfs, pièce de titre maroquin havane, tranches guillochées en rouge (reliure du XVIIIe siècle); (2) ff. de titre et dédicace, 58 pp., (1) f. blanc - 74 pp. (erreur de pagination sans manque, saut de la numérotation pp. 64 à 67) - 68 pp. - 75 pp. (erreur de pagination sans manque, saut de la numérotation pp. 56 à 59). Cernes de mouillure claire en marge des feuillets, plus ou moins marqués mais n'entravant jamais la lecture ; le dernier feuillet est doublé de vélin fort ; épidermures à trois nerfs, une coupe et un angle élimés. Dessin naïf en sanguine en marge de la page 43 de la troisième partie ; ex-libris manuscrit à l'encre brune sur le titre. ÉDITION ORIGINALE DE LA PLUS GRANDE RARETÉ. Marque de l'imprimeur sur le titre, bandeaux et lettres ornées gravés sur bois. L'Oeuvre abondante et magistrale, dans le domaine des lettres occitanes, de Jean de VALÈS (Montech, 1593-1661), est entièrement manuscrite. "L'Eneido burlesco" (1648) est en fait le seul ouvrage imprimé qui permit à son auteur d'être connu et apprécié. On n'en connaît que huit exemplaires, conservés précieusement dans les réserves des bibliothèques publiques (Toulouse, Marseille, Bordeaux, Montauban et Béziers pour la France). Du personnage nous ignorons l'essentiel de la biographie. Il est difficile de croire qu'il ait pu suivre les armées françaises en qualité d'aumônier lors de la campagne d'Italie, comme on a pu le rapporter ici ou là. Il semble en effet n'avoir guère quitté sa ville natale, sinon pour étudier à Toulouse, car il est toujours cité comme «prestre, docteur ès sainte théologie». Le "Virgilo Deguisat, ou l'Eneido burlesco" est une oeuvre d'inspiration burlesque pour laquelle le rire naît du ridicule où sont plongés les héros de la mythologie gréco-romaine transposés dans le décor anachronique du «païs moundin» (pays toulousain). Valès imagine en effet que les troubles de la guerre d'Italie menée par Louis XIII contraignent Virgile à quitter son tombeau napolitain et à se sauver au travers de l'armée française. C'est là que Valès le rencontre, et que Virgile le conjure de le sauver en le déguisant de son mieux et de le conduire sous ces habits d'emprunt à Toulouse, où force gens le tiennent en estime. Dans ce long travail, Valès a suivi le système de Scarron: les actions héroïques y sont constamment converties en actions triviales, et le lecteur vient fréquemment se heurter aux anachronismes les plus criants. Jean de Valès se rattache à l'école toulousaine, dont le chef de file est l'illustre Pierre Goudouli (1580-1649). (Maurières et Passerat, "Dix Siècles d'écriture en Tarn-et-Garonne", 290-91.- Noulet, "Essai sur l'histoire littéraire des patois du Midi", pp. 118-141 - "Biographie toulousaine", II, 461-62 - Robert Reboul, "Bibliographie des ouvrages écrits en patois du midi de la France", 442). AGRÉABLE EXEMPLAIRE, dans une bonne reliure du XVIIIe siècle. PLEASANT COPY. PICTURES AND MORE DETAILS ON REQUEST.

All bibliographers agree that this Parisian edition was a repetition of still an earlier 2 volume edition, which came from the presses of the famous French scholar and printer Henricus Stephanus the Second in 1588: 'Homeri Ilias et Odyssea, alia item carmina eiusdem, cum interpretatione latina, repurgata plurimis erroribus, partim ab Henrico Stephano. Adiecti Homeric centones, item proverbialium versuum libellus'. The Latin translation of Homer was made by the Cretan Greek scholar Franciscus Portus, 1511-1581. He taught Greek at Ferrara, and had to leave for Geneva in 1559, owing to his sympathy with the cause of Reformation. Dibdin notes that his translation was 'not remarkable for its accuracy'. For the good things in the Greek text the credits were given to Henry Estienne, or in Latin Henricus Stephanus, 1531-1598. 'He will always be numbered among the principal editors of Homer', Dibdin concludes.

These centones, derived from the Greek 'kentron', 'needle', form 'patchwork poetry', and consist of complete or half Homeric hexameters.

        The Arraignement and Conviction of Sr Walter Rawleigh, At the Kings Bench-Barre at Winchester on the 17. of November 1603

      At the Sun over against St Dunstan's Church in Fleetstreet: Printed by William Wilson, for Abel Roper, 1648 A fair copy of an extremely scarce work. Thomas Overbury (1581-1613) is best known for the scandal surrounding his death by poisoning in the Tower, and the trial that followed it some 2 years later. He studied Law in 1598, was knighted in 1608 and was known as a writer and poet. His account of the arraignment and trial of Raleigh is assumed to be written as an eye-witness. Raleigh was tried in 1603 and convicted of treason. His sentence of death was commuted to imprisonment and he was later briefly released, before being imprisoned and retried in 1618. This trial reinstated his death sentence, albeit by less gruesome means. The book contains Overbury's account of the first trial; an account of the second trial (no author named); and Raleigh's letters to the King and to his wife before his death. The binding is more recent full panelled calf with title label to spine, matching a contemporary design. There is a bookplate of Col William Allen Potter to the front pastedown. Col Potter was a High Sherriff of Nottinghamshire and President of the Thoroton Society. Newer endpapers and 2 initial and final blanks have been added. Contents: title page; blank, text with decorative headpiece and initial capital pp 1-25; proceedings against Sir Walter R 1618 pp 26-34; Letter to the King pp 35/6; Letter to his Wife 37/8; Finis. The binding is in fine condition. The contents are fragile: the paper is very browned at points and the side margins have been reinforced, probably when the book was rebound. It has also been trimmed at both top and bottom. P 7 has a couple of small holes next to the side margin and P 9 is particularly browned. Small parts of text are affected but the text can be read. Please ask for more images if you want to further assess condition. Size 13.5cm wide; 17.9cm high.

Anthonis Marckt, 1648. [Amsterdam, Nicolaes van Ravesteyn, 1648] 8vo. [8] + 89 + [3] + [4] + 53(numbered 91-143) + [1] + [6] + 263 (numbered 145-407) pages. Engraved floral title vignette and tail-pieces. 3 copper-engraved portraits. Ornamental initials. Contemporary vellum. £850 A collection of funeral orations, poems of mourning and epitaphs in honour of Frederick Henry Prince of Orange, Stadtholder of the Netherlands, who was buried with great pomp and ceremony in Delft on 10th May 1647. The authors of the literary compositions contained in this volume include outstanding contemporary Dutch poets and playwrights such as Joost van den Vondel (1587-1679), Caspar Barlaeus(1584-1648), Pieter Corneliszoon Hooft (1581-1647, the 3 epitaphs on p.400 are his last poems), and Hendrick Bruno (1617-69). Frederick Henry’s reign (1625-47) is regarded the Dutch Golden Age because of his military triumphs, economic successes, and the flowering of art and literature. The prince proved an able commander in the Dutch wars against Spain, and was given shrewd political advice by his clever and ambitious wife, Amalia zu Solms-Braunfels who enhanced The Hague with magnificent art collections. The three finely engraved oval portraits respectively show Frederick Henry in armour, his wife Amalia (1602-75, later acting as regent for her grandson William III) , and their son, the young Stadtholder Willem II of Orange (1626-50) who married Mary of England. The printer’s 2-page preface to the reader is signed by Nicolaes van Ravesteyn. An attractive copy in fresh condition. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Amsterdam: L. Elzevir, 1648. First Collected Edition. Very good antiquarian condition. Small 4to, 2 works in 1 vol. [34], 800 (i.e. 808) pp.: 3 parts in 1. [8], 110, 115, 88 pp. Small library stamp on first title-page repeated in blank margin. Woodcut printer's device on both title-pages and 1 engraved double-portrait in the first volume; early ownership inscription "Antonii Mensonius" of Amsterdam; subsequently in the library of the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland; some light marginal foxing. Contemporary vellum, red title labels on spine (chipped), including the place and date of imprint "Amstelodami 1648" (part of first word with loss). A crisp and attractive copy, completely unsophisticated. Our copy contains the often-lacking engraved double-portrait of the author and his son. "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'" (Garrison-Morton). Ortus Medicinae: "'The Birth of Medicine', edited posthumously by the author's son, is our chief source for the discoveries of Helmont with regard to the chemical nature of living processes. ... Many of Hemont's general principles were derived from those of his master, Paracelsus ... Although he was inclined to mysticism, he nevertheless became a remarkable scientific investigator and made significant contributions to the progress of chemistry and medicine. ... he believed that the processes in diseased organs are of a chemical nature, due in each case to the action of a specific ferment, and he gave a new impetus to the application of chemical remedies to diseases ... In medicine, he introduced the examination of the specific gravity of urine for diagnostic purposes. ... Helmont's significance in the development of chemistry is perhaps even greater; he was the first to use the term 'gas' (derived from the Greek work 'chaos'). ... 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. Hemont therefore stands at the very beginning of the chemical revolution which was completed by Lavoisier in the eighteenth century" (PMM). The second volume consists of his four Opuscula Medica (De Lithiasi, De Febribus, Tumoris Pestis, and De Humoribus Galeni) each with its own title-page. § Printing and the Mind of Man no. 135; Garrison-Morton 665; Krivatsy 5447 & 5442; Wellcome III, 241; Willems 1066; Heirs of Hippocrates 253-4; Norman 1048; Waller 4306-7; Partington II, 209ff.; Thorndike VII, 218ff; Neville I, 613.
