        Les Passions de l'Ame.

      Henry le Gras, Paris 1649 - 8vo (163 x 104 mm). [48], 16, 286 pp. Wood-engraved French royal arms on title, tailpiece and initials. Duplicate gathering A (pp. 1-16) bound in after preliminaries. Without the final blank leaf. Contemporary vellum, boards with yapp edges, later morocco gilt-lettered spine label (vellum little soiled). Very minor occasional spotting, light age-toning of text, marginal dust-soiling to final pages, but generally quite clean and crisp. Provenance: illegible marks of erased old stamp on title-page. A fine, wide-margined and unmarked copy. ---- Norman 625; Willems 1083; Tchmerzine II, p.791; Garrison-Morton 4965; Hunter & Macalpine, Three Hundred Years of Psychiatry, p.133-34. - FIRST EDITION of Descartes' renowned philosophical treatise about the passions of the soul. This was Descartes' last work published in his lifetime, drawing heavily on the then-unpublished Traité de l'homme. It contains an extensive discussion of mind-body duality and the first description of the reflex function (and the first use of the word reflex to describe it). For Descartes, that the soul was seated in the pineal gland, which mediated interaction between soul and body. "Descartes believed the soul to be a definite entity, giving rise to thoughts, feelings, and acts of volition. He was one of the first to regard the brain as an organ integrating the functions of mind and body" (Garrison-Morton). The publishing rights of this work were shared between Louis Elzevier and Henry Le Gras and only a small fraction of this issue bears Le Gras' address in the imprint. In three parts (Des passions en général; Du nombre & de l'ordre des passions; Des Passions particulières) and 212 articles, Descartes describes the different types of 'passions', or emotions. He notably treats of fear, hatred, anger, love, and desire, to name but a few. "L'édition de 1649 est assez rare, surtout avec l'adresse primitive" (Willems 1083). - Visit our website for additional images and information. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        1649 1ed Groenewegen Tractatus de Legibus Dutch & Roman LAW Juris Latin Holland

      Lvgdvni-Batavorvm : apud Davidem Lopez de Haro, et Franciscum Moyardum, 1649. First edition. - 1649 1ed Groenewegen Tractatus de Legibus Dutch & Roman LAW Juris Latin Holland A rare Roman law book, ‘Tractatus de Legibus’ by a 17th-century Dutch jurist Simon van Groenewegen. Groenewegen practiced law in Holland, mainly in The Hague and in Delft, but in addition to his own legal writings, he published an anthology of legal opinions on Grotius’s introduction to Dutch law. Grotius published his work without literature support; so, neither did Groenewegen in his books. His works came from practical legal experience, rather than research. In this book, ‘Tractatus de Legibus,’ Groenewegen points out differences and inconsistencies in Roman Law, many of which he supplements and corrects with his own judicial decisions. This extremely rare 1649 first edition was reprinted and profusely translated well into the 20th-century. In fact, these more modern editions include provisions of the Roman Law that are still applied in Holland and which are not. Groenewegen also deals with practicing law in and out of other European countries, and what jurisdiction carries from one location to another. To this day, this work has legal significance within Roman-Dutch law. This charming vellum-bound book includes small vellum tabs along the fore-edge as a quick-reference for each chapter. Item number: #1182 Price: $750 GROENEWEGEN van der MADE, Simon a Tractatus de legibus abrogatis et inusitatis in Hollandia vicinisque regionibus Lvgdvni-Batavorvm : apud Davidem Lopez de Haro, et Franciscum Moyardum, 1649.

In 1721 zou een afzonderlijke uitgave verschijnen van de 60 prenten onder de titel ‘Nederlandsche Oudheden'. In 1737 verscheen een door P. Langendijk vermeerderde tweede druk van het werk van Smids en een derde uitgave dateert van 1774. Tenslotte zou er in 1778 nog een ‘Aanhangsel tot Ludolf Smids M.D. Schatkamer der Nederlandsche Oudheden' verschijnen, van de hand van Th. van Brussel. De prenten in de latere drukken beginnen slijtage te vertonen."

        Eikon Basilike. The Pourtraicture of His Sacred Maiestie in His Solitudes and Sufferings

      [London]: [printed by John Grismond for Richard Royston], 1649. First edition, third state, with correct pagination in quire G.. 12mo (6 1/2 x 3 7/8 inches). Engraved double-page portrait by William Marshall. Early 20th-century half calf, marbled boards, all edges gilt, by Zaehnsdorf. Light wear to extremities; a few occasional pale stains, lacks terminal blank, generally fresh. Originally attributed to Charles I, the bibliographer Francis F. Madan contends the Eikon Basilike was written by Bishop John Gauden, who probably included some authentic writings of the king. Though the title-page reads 1648, it was published on 9 February 1649, ten days after the king was beheaded in the aftermath of the English Civil War. The famous allegorical frontispiece by William Marshall depicts Charles I as a Christian martyr. The work was so successful in its portrayal of the king that, at the Restoration, a special commemoration of the king on 30 January was added to the Book of Common Prayer. Charles I is the only saint formally canonised by the Church of England. ESTC R10559; Madan 1c; Wing E270.

        The Poetical Works of Robert Burns: With Fore-Edge Painting of New Bridge and Broomielaw, Glasgow

      London: Frederick Warne and Company. Octavo, bound in full brown morocco, decoratively bordered in gilt, spine gilt, gilt dentelles, all edges gilt. With a wonderful fore-edge painting of New Bridge and Broomielaw, Glasgow. Binding by H. & C. Treacher of Brighton. 614 pp. Illustrated. The earliest fore-edge paintings date possibly as far back as the 10th century; these earliest paintings were symbolic designs. Early English fore-edge paintings, believed to date to the 14th century, presented heraldic designs in gold and other colors. The first known example of a disappearing fore-edge painting (where the painting is not visible when the book is closed) dates from 1649. The earliest signed and dated fore-edge painting dates to 1653: a family coat of arms painted on a 1651 Bible. Around 1750, the subject matter of fore-edge paintings changed from simply decorative or heraldic designs to landscapes, portraits and religious scenes, usually painted in full color. Modern fore-edge painted scenes have a lot more variation as they can depict numerous subjects not found on earlier specimens. These include scenes that are erotic, or they might involve scenes from novels (like Jules Verne, Sherlock Holmes or Dickens, etc.). In many cases, the chosen scene will depict a subject related to the book, but in other cases it did not. In one instance, the same New Brunswick landscape was applied to both a Bible and to a collection of poetry and plays. The choice of scenes is made by either the artist, bookseller or owner, thus the variety is wide. The technique was popularized in the 18th century by John Brindley (1732-1756), publisher and bookbinder to the prince of Wales and Edwards of Halifax, a distinguished family of bookbinders and booksellers. The majority of extant examples of fore-edge painting date to the late 19th and early 20th century on reproductions of books originally published in the early 19th century.

        Verdadera relacion de la grande destruicion, que ha avido en la Ciudad de Manila. Declara los Templos sumptuosos, y grandes edificios que se hundieron en la dicha Ciudad, y lugares circunvezinos, y gente que murio: con otros grandes portentos, que se declaran

      1649 - Extremely rare relation of the most destructive earthquake that stroke Manila since the Conquest by the Spanish. 1649. Madrid. Alonso de Paredes. Folio. 2 ff. Unbound. Foxed, upper corner soiled. 4,500 $ First edition. Important imprint for the history of Manila, giving a report of the destruction of Manila in the earthquake of 1645, and the state the city was left in the aftermath; extremely rare, this is apparently only the second known copy, the other at the Biblioteca Nacional de España. The imprint commences with a short review of Manila´s history, describing the original houses built by Conquistadores (made primarily of wood, and the later upgrade to housing of stone and roof tiles), and mentioning the victory won over Corsair Limahon´s Chinese fleet, who attacked Manila. The author provides an overview of the architectural history of Manila: “comencaron los Españoles a edificar sus casas de piedra, y teja, sin rezelo urgente de los temblores, que aunque son aqui ordinaries todos los años, no avian causado ruinas de cuidado; y assi en estos ultimos quarenta años, poco mas, o menos, que corrieron desde el postrer incencio, se hizieron hermosos edificios, y casas de habitacion tan altas, y capazes, que parecian Palacios; Templos sumptuosos con encumbradas, y hermosas torres, assi dentro como fuera de los muros de Manila, que la hazian muy vistosa, y luzida, y no menos acomodada para la salud y y recreo” The bulk of the relation however focuses on the natural disaster itself, the losses suffered –both in buildings and lives-, and finishes with the aftermath: most of the people from Manila left town and went to surrounding villages, some to the beach, aware of the “infieles”, or unconverted Indians. “On November 30, 1645, occurred the most destructive earthquake known in the islands since the Spanish conquest. Manila was laid waste by it. Bodies of the dead and the dying were buried under the ruins. The extent of the damage to buildings were enormous. Most of the people left the city and encamped in the fields or on the beach. Much havoc was wrought by the earthquake in various other places in the islands. The shocks and disturbances continued for some time afterward, although much lessened in force.” (The Philippine Islands, 1493-1803, Vol. 1, no. 35, Blair, Emma Helen, et. al. d.1911). The original text seems to be a manuscript held at the Real Academia de la Historia (CCPB001109932-1), which attributes it to Diego Niseno. We couldn’t trace this in any bibliography. No copy in any institution in the United States. Not in the British Library. [Attributes: First Edition]

Illustrated with a title within allegorical engraved border, 42 engravings depicting the Dance of Death by Merian, an engraved illustration ("Memento Mori"), and a striking reversible portrait showing the sitter alive and dead. Merian's depictions of the Dance of Death were copied from fifteenth-century frescoes on the churchyard wall of the Dominican church in Basel; the frescoes were restored in the early sixteenth century and again in the early seventeenth century.

        Examen vande valsche resolutie vande heeren burgemeesters ende raden tot Amsterdam. Op 't stuck vande West-Indische Compagnie.Amsterdam, Abraham de Bruyn, 1649. Small 4to (18.5 x 14.5 cm). Modern plain paper wrappers.

      Asher 253; Borba de Moraes, p. 297; Knuttel 6473; Sabin 23344; STCN (6 copies). First edition of an examination of the fake resolution of the burgomasters and council of Amsterdam on the question of the West India Company. The present pamphlet is a response to Copye vande resolutie van de heeren burgemeesters ende raden tot Amsterdam ... (Asher 250-252), a splendid satire of the burgomasters and council members of the city of Amsterdam, presented, and by many contemporaries accepted, as an official resolution of the city government concerning the West India Company (WIC)'s troubles with the Portuguese in Brazil. The Portuguese had retaken Brazil and other possessions from the WIC and there was a great debate in the Netherlands as to whether the government should step in to support the WIC and if so how far they should go. Many investors would lose everything if the WIC permanently lost its trade in Brazil. The present fake resolution gives a statement from each of the burgomasters and councillors (under their real names). The present pamphlet accuses the anonymous perpetrators of the hoax of deliberately trying to turn the populace against the council. This may have merely served to advertise the original pamphlet as a satire, for it was reprinted soon after the original appeared.With a few specks and a minor water stain in the lower margin of a couple pages, otherwise in very good condition.

      Asher 260; Borba de Moraes, p. 33; Knuttel 6479; Sabin 1352; STCN (8 copies); not in Bosch. First and only edition of a pamphlet on the strife in Brazil between the Dutch West India Company (WIC) and Portugal, in the form of a dialogue between four Dutchmen and a bartender in an Amsterdam tavern. It is one of a series of anonymous pamphlets published on the subject in that year, "much superior to anything which had as yet been written on the subject" (Asher, p. 197).The men discuss the latest news concerning Brazil, including the Zeeland privateers, the sugar trade, the establishment of the Portuguese Brazil Company (Companhia Geral para o Estado do Brazil), and the causes of the failure to make peace with the Portuguese. They also discuss the poor position of the WIC and suggest it would be better to revoke the Company's monopoly and allow merchants free trade with Brazil.Slightly browned, two small stains on last leaf, not affecting the text, otherwise in very good condition. Binding also very good.

        Les Oeuvres de chirurgie de Jacques Guillemeau, chirugien ordinaire du roy et ivre a Paris. Avec les portraicts et figures de toutes les parties du corps humain, & des instruments necessaires au chirurgien

      Rouen: Jean Viret, Francois Vaultier, Clement Malassis, 1649-01-01. Hardcover. Very Good. Folio. 1/4 modern Moroccan leather over marble boards. A superior volume. Fine binding. 36 cm.[50], 863, [32] p. Clean, unmarked pages. Lovely illustrations. The anatomical plates are derived from Vesalius, those of instruments are from Pare. Reprint of the 1612 Paris edition.In French with Greek and Latin references. Title in red and black. Jacques Guillemeau (1550-1613) was a French surgeon noted for his contributions to obstetrics, ophthalmology and pediatrics. He worked at Hotel-Dieu de Paris and served as a surgeon to the French crown. He was the royal surgeon for Charles IX, Henry III, and Henry IV. He was the favored student (and son in law) of Ambroise Pare, whose work Guillemeau helped popularize. Wellcome III, p. 179. Garrison-Morton (citing Paris edition) 3669 for his contribution to dentistry, 5818 for his work on ophthalmology, and 6145.1 for his contribution to obstetrics. Association copy. Dr. Samuel Clark Harvey's book plate on front paste down. Samuel Clark Harvey (1886-1953) was a noted Yale surgeon. Harvery served with US Army forces in WWI under the direction of Dr. Cushing. Cushing later appointed him chief of surgery in Mobile Hospital No. 6, where he dealt with neurosurgical casualties. After the war Harvey returned to civilian practice and served as chairman of the Yale Department of Surgery 1922-1947. "In his philosophy of pedagogy he was far ahead of his time and was to a large extent responsible for the introduction of the unique method of teaching that is colloquially referred to as the "Yale system."He regarded the medical student as a mature adult who entered medical school with a sincere desire to learn, and he placed the responsibility for his education squarely upon the student himself rather than upon the faculty. A staunch and outspoken antagonist of the didactic lecture and quiz method of teaching, he believed that knowledge cannot be passively transferred or given away, but can be acquired only by an active, painstaking, and continuing process of discriminating study and reflection. He considered it the function of the teacher to arouse enthusiasm and stimulate interest in the students, to provide them with opportunities for pursuing these interests, to guide them in the use of the "experimental method," to help them develop habits of effective and sustained study-but above all to spark their curiosity and to develop within them a rational spirit of inquiry that would be a stimulus for learning and study long after they had left the protective aegis of school and teachers." Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine Vol. 26, September 1953. Also, from the library of Dr. Gert H. Brieger. Dr. Brieger was the Chairman of the Institute of the History of Medicine at Johns Hopkins. Dr. Brieger was presented this volume by the staff of the Johns Hopkins Press for his work as editor of the Bulletin of the History of Medicine 1990-2004. Includes related loose ephemera: a gift note from JHU Press, a write up of the Guillemeau's book, 2 copies of the program note for 33rd annual Samuel Clark Harvey Memorial lecture given in 1988 on Dr. Samuel Clark Harvery by Dr. Brieger.

        Todten-Tantz wie derselbe in der löblichen und weitberühmten Statt Basel, als ein Spiegel menschlicher Beschaffenheit, gantz künstlich gemahlet und zu sehen ist....

      Frankfurt, 1649. First Merian edition (although a sketchier and incomplete proto-edition of exceeding rarity had appeared earlier). Dance of Death cycles typically show a very quick and lively skeleton leading someone away in a dance step. The partner's social station is instantly recognizable, and much of the fun lies in death's indifference to rank: the death figure is just as cheerful leading off the queen or the pope as the merchant or the beggar. While the conventions may have originated in Medieval pageants, their popularity grew and flourished in the Renaissance and Baroque periods. Merian's cycle is based on the famous frescoes in the Basel Predigerkirche (destroyed as an "eyesore" by town authorities in 1805). Merian's Adam and Eve plate, and his famously surreal death's-head self-portrait that can be viewed right-side-up or up-side-down, make their first appearance here. The book was frequently reprinted and copied for the succeeding 150 years, becoming the most instantly recognizable of all Baroque editions of the Dance of Death. A very good copy. . Quarto (20 cm); [3], 4-206, [2] pages. Title within engraved border of macabre landscapes, and 44 full-page copperplate engravings. Contemporary (?) binding of plain brown sheep over pasteboard. Rebacked. Extremities rubbed and bumped, exposing boards at corners (one corner repaired); few small abrasions on leather. Browning to perimeter of endpapers from acid migration of the leather turn-ins. Interior: Title and following three leaves fingersoiled; scattered soiling and foxing; old mend to head fore-corner of A2; L4 with 4-cm vertical tear in gutter. Two small wormholes. Nevertheless, text and plates are remarkably clean and unblemished.

        Merlini Anglici Ephemeris, or Generall and Monthly Predictions upon severall Eclipses and Celestial Configurations for the Yeare1649. By William Lilly Student in Astrology. [together with an incomplete version of an original second edition of William Lilly's "Christian Astrology" - 1659 Edition]

      Original Edition (NOT a Reprint). Duodecimo. 96 unnumbered pages including portrait - titlepage. Hardcover / 18th century full calf with rebacked 20th century spine. Overall very good. Extremely Rare ! / [96] A4, B-F8, G4. Civil War era almanac in contemporary sheep, rebacked, with William Marshall's engraving of Lilly on the title page. Collated and complete, later endpapers, light staining only to text. A very nice example of a scarce almanac by the prolific Lilly who managed to thrive whatever the political circumstances and 'the most abused as well as the most celebrated astrologer of the seventeenth century' (Bernard Capp) This 1649 edition is particularly celebrated as it predicts a purge of Parliament which took place two days after its composition date given by Lilly as 4 December, 1648, thereby clearing the path for the execution of the King - already prophesied by Lilly. ESTC R8715 (description: Christian White). William Lilly (11 May [O.S. 1 May] 1602 9 June 1681) has been described as "the most abused as well as the most celebrated astrologer of the seventeenth century". Born the son of a yeoman farmer in Leicestershire, Lilly travelled to London as a youth to take up a servant's position. Seven years later he secured his fortune by marrying his former master's widow, allowing him the leisure to study astrology. In 1644, during the English Civil War, he published the first of many popular astrological texts,and in 1647 he published Christian Astrology, a huge compendium of astrological technique. This was the first of its kind to be printed in the English language rather than Latin, and is said to have tutored "a nation in crisis in the language of the stars". By 1659, Lilly's fame was widely acknowledged and his annual almanac was achieving sales of around 30,000 copies a year. Lilly's autobiography, published towards the end of his life in 1681, at the request of his patron Elias Ashmole, gives candid accounts of the political events of his era, and biographical details of contemporaries that are unavailable elsewhere. It was described, in the late 18th century, as "one of the most entertaining narratives in our language", in particular for the historical portrayal it leaves of men like John Dee, Simon Forman, John Booker, Edward Kelley, including a whimsical first meeting of John Napier and Henry Briggs, respective co-inventors of the logarithm and Briggsian logarithms, and for its curious tales about the effects of crystals and the appearance of Queen Mab. In it, Lilly describes the friendly support of Oliver Cromwell during a period in which he faced prosecution for issuing political astrological predictions. He also writes about the 1666 Great Fire of London, and how he was brought before the committee investigating the cause of the fire, being suspected of involvement because of his publication of images, 15 years earlier, which depicted a city in flames surrounded by coffins. Lilly was a controversial character who was both aided and abetted by powerful friends and enemies. He attracted the attention of many members of Parliament, through the support of Sir Bulstrode Whitelocke, Lord Keeper of the Great Seal of England, (to whom he dedicated his Christian Astrology), but also accused Members of Parliament of engineering charges against him in 1651. To his supporters he was an "English Merlin" to his detractors he was a "juggling wizard and imposter". He is described as having been a genius at something "that modern mainstream opinion has since decided cannot be done at all", and having developed his stature as the most important astrologer in England through his social and political involvement, as well as his impact on the astrological tradition.
