Velleius Paterculus, a Roman historian (circa 19 BC-circa 31 AD) annotated here by Justus Lipsius. John Taylor Coleridge (1790-1876) whose signature appears on the front endpaper was a judge and classicist, nephew of the poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge, and corresponded with Arnold, Southey, Newman, Pusey, and Keble.

Il nome, & il passaggio delle Alpi. Gli confini dell'Italia. Le Vite de Vescoui di Trento, & in ispeciale l'heroiche attioni, le segnalate virtù, l'amore incomparabile verso la Patria, gli accrescimenti, fatti à prò di quella del Cardinale Bernardo Clesio, Prencipe d'indelebil memoria. Composte da Giano Pirro Pincio mantovano e nouellamente da celebre ingegno fedelmente tradotte à commune beneficio di chi desidera sapere, non solo gli auvenimenti del Trentino, ma della Germania, Lombardia, e d'altre nationi, accenandousi ancore le magnanime imprese, così dell'inuitto Cesare Carlo Quinto, come d'altri Imperatori Romani. Consecrate all'Eccellenza Reuerendiss. di Monsig. il Sig. Carlo Emmanuel Madruzzo, Vescouo, & Prencipe di Trento, Conte di Chiallant, mio Sig. Clementiss.

      Carlo Zanetti, Trento, 1648. [16], 399, [5] p., [1] ritr. incis., 2° (30 cm), perg. Esemplare buono, con qualche difetto. Le pag da 105 a 112 sono bianche e non risultano stampate. Ex libris al frontespizio. Stemma dei Madruzzo al frontespizio. Carattere romano e corsivo. Dedica di Carlo Zanetti a Carlo Emanuele Madruzzo. I quattordici libri che compongono l'opera, come nelle prima edizione stampata nel 1546 a Mantova da Venturino Ruffinelli, sono dedicati ad Aliprando Cles, a esclusione del primo e del quarto non dedicati e del secondo dedicato a Cristoforo Madruzzo. L'incisione in rame a piena pagina raffigurante Carlo Emanuele Madruzzo è probabilmente opera di Francesco Curti. La traduzione del testo del Pincio, opera del francescano Agostino Barisella, a causa di alcune difformità dal testo originale che davano luogo a pericolosi fraintendimenti di carattere politico, incorse nelle ire del vescovo Carlo Emanuele Madruzzo che impose di allegare alla pubblicazione un foglio di correzioni: "[...] Scoprendosi dalla lettura del Pinzio nuouamente tradotto dall'idioma latino, in lingua volgare, alteratione notabile, siue periodi come aggionte di nuoue, e perniciose parole. Pertanto prohibiamo sotto pena di scomunica ipso facto incurrenda [...] à chionque ardirà leggere, ò trattenere appò di se, qualsiuoglia transonto, nel quale non si ritroua la qui congionta correttione. Et à fine che non resti à chi sia presontione d'ignoranza, commandiamo ch'il presente foglio sij annesso nel frontespitio dell'Opera, prohibendo sotto l'accenata pena, e perdita de libri ogn'altro incorretto esemplare". Di grande bellezza e rarità, esemplare completo (tranne che per quelle pg bianche) in buono stato di conservazione. La scheda è tratta dal volume di Mauro Hausbergher: "Annali della tipografia Zanetti: Trento 1625-1683, Trento, Biblioteca comunale, 1997", al quale rimandiamo per ulteriori approfondimenti.

        Journael ofte gedenckwaerdige beschryvinghe, vande Oost-Indische reyse van Willem Ysbrantsz Bontekoe van Hoorn. Begrijpende veel wonderlijcke en ghevaerlycke saecken, hem daer in wedervaren. Begonnen den 18 December 1618 en vol-eynt den 16 November 1625. Waer by ghevoeght is het journael van Dirck Albertz Raven, als oock verscheyden gedenckwaerdige geschiedenissen, op veel plaetsen verbetert en een groot deel vermeerdert.

      Hoorn, ghedruckt by Isaac Wilemsz voor Jansz. Deutel, 1648.2 volumes in 1. 4to. Old half vellum. With half-page title-vignette, engraved portrait of Bontekoe, 2 engravings in the text, and 9 double-page or folding engraved views. 80 pp.First published in Hoorn in 1646, in 1647 several piracy editions were issued; the 1648 edition is the authentic second and best augmented edition. - After having passed Madagascar, Bontekoe's ship the Nieu Hoorn caught fire and exploded. The survivors continued their voyage in a small open sloop and after much suffering and many adventures they were rescued in Straits Sunda by a Dutch fleet in command of Frederik Houtman. In 1622 Bontekoe commanded one of the ships in Cornelis Reijersen's war fleet, and his adventures on the expedition along the China coast were hardly less spectacular than those of the outward voyage. He took part in the attack on Macao, and his ship was one of the fleet which raided the coast of Fukien province. Finally he returned to his hometown Hoorn in 1625. This account of the ship-wreck, a wonder of seaman-ship, has became a classic and went through many editions and was translated into nearly every European language. From the beginning Raven's Journael of te beschrijvinge vande reyse ghedaen by den commandeur Dirck Albertsz. Raven, na Spitsbergen, in den jare 1639 ten dienste van de .. Groenlandtsche Compagnie tot Hoorn was added to Bontekoe's voyage. Raven too suffered shipwreck. This edition of 1648 was augmented with accounts of four other expeditions which took place in 1645 and 1646.(Waterstain in right corner). - Rare early edition of one of the bestsellers of the 17th century up to the 19th century.

        Lancastria Palatinatus.

      Amsterdam:, 1648. Anglia. Lancaster et Lancas Shire. Size: 510 x 400 mm. Copper engraving. Original colour. Fine condition; very slight offsetting. A fine and highly decorative map of Lancashire by the famous Dutch cartographer Blaeu. This English county map with figurative title cartouche is ornate with heraldic family coats of arms and a cherub. The map is very detailed and gives many place names, smaller villages or settlements. Rivers, lakes, mountains and woods are also indicated. Jan Blaeu (1596-1673) was a son of a famous Dutch cartographer, Willem Janzoon Blaeu, and he shared his father's passion and continued his work. His Atlas Novus is one of the most extraordinary work within this category ever produced. It is known for its exquisite engraving, calligraphy and colouring as well as heraldic detail, pictorial work and the intricate cartouches, which all amounted to the appeal of this work. In fact it is argued that some of the maps produced by Jan were considered to be the finest published anywhere in the seventeenth century. This map is from the Dutch edition of this work.

        Blaeu - De zeilwagen van prins Maurits, landjacht.

      Kopergravure in de tijd met de hand gekleurd, uitgegeven te Amsterdam ca. 1648 door Joan Blaeu, (1596-1673). Afmetingen (prent) ca. 45 x 57 cm.Uit Blaeu?s atlas ?Toneel der Steden van de Verenigde Nederlanden met hare beschrijvingen??, verschenen op 5 juni 1648, de datum waarop de vrede van munster een einde maakte aan de tachtig jarige oorlog. Blaeu gebruikte de grote gravure van Jacques de Geyn?s zeilwagen uit 1603, (noordwaarts, naar rechts rijdend) als voorbeeld voor zijn eigen prent. Op een dag tussen 13 april en 23 mei 1602 maakte prins Maurits in gezelschap van 27 gasten een tocht met zijn zeilwagen (ook wel ??landjacht? genoemd) van Scheveningen naar Petten, 14 Hollandse mijlen, met prinselijk vaandel in top. Tot de inzittenden van het voertuig, dat was uitgevonden Simon Stevin, behoorden o.a. de toen 19-jarige studievriend van Frederik Hendrik, Hugo de Groot, de Frans ambassadeur in Den Haag Paul Choart de Buzanval, de bij Nieuwpoort gevangen genomen Francis de Mendoza, generaal in het leger van aartshertog Albert van Oostenrijk, Ulric van Holstein, broer van de Deense koning Christiaan IV en Frederik Hendrik. De zeilwagen kon het traject Schevingen-Petten alleen afleggen met een sterke zuidwestenwind over de smalle, vrij gladde strook zand tussen de zee en de duinen. Het voertuig kon een snelheid bereiken van meer da 50 kilometer per uur. Rechts in beeld twee ruiters in galop. Deze zullen wel zijn ingeschakeld om aan te tonen dat de wagen zich veel sneller kon verplaatsen, dan dat met een paard mogelijk was. Links is vermoedelijk het prototype afgebeeld waarnaar de grote zeilwagen is gemaakt. Beide wagens zijn tot het einde van de achttiende eeuw in het bezit geweest van de Oranjes. In 1795 werd de kleine zeilwagen op een openbare veiling verkocht. Prijs: ?1.850,- (BTW margeregeling).

Ink. signature of Charles Greene on title-page, signature of R.J. Cary MD, 1913 inside front cover. Very good. FIRST COLLECTED EDITION of a copy heavily read by an early physician/owner. The ffep. has an extensive ms. list of topics and where they are located in the text. On the title-page is a contemporary ms. biographical note of van Helmont. Marginalia throughout the text makes references to urinalysis, and to Paracelsus. Van Helmont was an early modern period Flemish chemist, physiologist, and physician. He worked during the years just after Paracelsus and iatrochemistry, and is sometimes considered to be "the founder of pneumatic chemistry". Provenance: Raymond John Cary (d. 1959?) was a 1912 graduate of Johns Hopkins University. He wrote a paper, "Digestion; an historical survey," for the Bulletin of Johns Hopkins Hospital, May 1916, p. 142. In this paper Cary refers to this very copy of van Helmont’s Ortus medicinae and draws from the text what are his own perceptions on the author’s views on digestion. Cary writes that Johann Georg Wirsüng’s discovery in 1642 of the pancreatic duct was not known to van Helmont (nor was it understood by Wirsüng who was murdered – see below). Cary worked at the Mt. View Sanatorium, Lake View, Washington. Member: American Public Health Association. See: JAMA, 1915, LXV (6), pp. 536-546.

With a double-page engraved plate with 6 views of the ship at fire and in a storm, the islands St. Mary, Samatra and Princes Eyland, and an image of flying fishes. Modern marbled wrappers.

      - Landwehr & V.d. Krogt, VOC 381; Tiele, Bibl. 159; Verkruijsse & Verhoeven 1648-03. One of the most compelling and entertaining travel accounts of Dutch literature, in one of the earliest and most important editions, the first to be published by Hartgers. Bontekoe details his eventful 8-year voyage to the East Indies. The vivid description of his ship accidently exploding in the Sunda Strait, killing almost a third of the crew, no doubt made a huge impression on his readers. Bontekoe returned in 1625, but his travelogue was not published until 1646. It was an immediate success and went through numerous editions. From the beginning Raven's short account of a voyage to Greenland, during which he too suffered shipwreck, was added to Bontekoe's voyage. Almost all editions of Bontekoe's narrative are rare. Jan Jansz. Deutel, who published the first edition in 1646, also published the first significantly revised edition in 1648, in part to better compete with the pirated edition with new and better illustrations by Salomon Saverij. Hartgers took the best of both, following Deutel’s revised text but Saverij’s illustrations, establishing one of the two principal branches in the lineage of editions.Trimmed close to the text, slightly shaving an occasional shoulder note, the two corners at the foot of the plate are torn off, one just touching the corner of the image, and a dark stain on 2 facing pages, but still generally in good condition. Important early edition of the vivid description of Bontekoe's voyage to the East Indies.

( ex-libris J.W. Mc Donald, et tampon ex-libris Fanch Guillemin, magicien) Edition originale très rare du plus extraordinaire ouvrage de Wilkins, sorte de manifeste rédigé pour la Royal Society et décrivant toutes les réalisations mécaniques possibles aussi bien réelles qu'imaginaires. Dix ans plutôt il avait envisagé la possibilité d'un voyage dans la Lune, ici il aborde les moyens de cette réalisation, plus particulièrement à l'aide d'un chariot volant. Il traite de l'art du vol et décrit aussi un automate volant et différents autres types d'automates, mais aussi des véhicules, sous-marins, une vis sans fin, des fontaines perpétuelles et mouvements perpétuels, les effets extraordinaires des poulies et des engrenages, du vent, des forces magnétiques, des lampes perpétuelles, des gaz... Il évoque aussi les funambules et danseurs sur cordes. Cela fait de ce livre un des tous premiers traités en anglais de mécanique et physique amusante. Il impressionna fortement le jeune Newton, qui en reproduisit des passages dans son journal de collégien. ¶ "Much of Mathematical Magick discusses the operation of machines for raising water, such as those which Wilkins had in his garden at Wadham. In general, the book embodied the notion that the quality of human life could easily be improved through the application of experimental knowledge. This was an idea that many linked to the re-establishment of mankind's dominion over nature, which had been lost at the fall."

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.

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.

        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).

        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).
