        Pathomyotomia or a dissection of the significative muscles of the affections of the minde

      London: W.W. for Humphrey Moseley, 1649. FIRST EDITION. Woodcut initials and headpieces. Contemporary calf, rebacked at an early date with the original spine laid down; text block lightly toned, paste-downs strengthened with early annotations. Generally in excellent shape. First edition of this early and rare anonymously-published treatise on the relationship between muscular action and psychology, the first substantial English work on the muscular basis of the expression of emotions. Bulwer very specifically describes the facial expressions for various emotions, including anger and happiness. His intention to name facial muscles after the actual passions they were used to express foreshadowed Duchenne de Boulogne's Mecanisme de la physiognomie humaine (1862) by over two hundred years. Much of Bulwer's initial descriptions were confirmed in Darwin's Expression of emotions of man and animals (1872). Bulwer (1606-1656) is noted for having been the first in England to develop a method of communicating with the deaf and dumb.

        Eikon Basilike - The Pourtraicture of His Sacred Majestie in His Solitudes and Sufferings - Together with his Private Prayers used in the time of his restraint and delivered to Dr. Juxon, Bishop of London, immediately before his death.

      Original Edition (NOT a Reprint). Octavo. (10, including Royal Arms Woodcut and Charles I. portrait bound in just before A3), Folded Emblemata leaf with latin and english explanations, 263 pages with an additional portrait bound in just before page 259. Hardcover / Original, early 19th century or late 18th century full calf with gilt lettering and ornament on spine. The binding was professionally restored with new pastedowns and endpapers. (Extremely professional). Excellent condition. The Eikon Basilike (The "Royal Portrait"), The Pourtrature of His Sacred Majestie in His Solitudes and Sufferings, is a purported spiritual autobiography attributed to King Charles I of England. It was published on 9 February 1649, ten days after the King was beheaded by Parliament in the aftermath of the English Civil War in 1649. Written in a simple, moving, and straightforward style in the form of a diary, the book combines irenic prayers urging the forgiveness of Charles's executioners with a justification of royalism and the King's political and military programme that led to the Civil War. It is by no means certain that Charles wrote the book. After the Restoration, John Gauden, bishop of Worcester, claimed to have written it. Scholars continue to disagree about the merits of this claim, though assuming that if Gauden wrote it, he had access to Charles's papers when he did so. Jeremy Taylor is also said to have had a hand in its revision, and to be the source of its title an earlier draft bore the name Suspiria Regalia, the "Royal Sighs." The frontispiece was engraved by William Marshall. In the first edition, the frontispiece was accompanied by Latin and English verses that explain it. The Eikon Basilike and its portrait of Charles's execution as a martyrdom were so successful that, at the Restoration, a special commemoration of the King on 30 January was added to the Book of Common Prayer, directing that the day be observed as an occasion for fasting and repentance. On 19 May 1660, the Convocation of Canterbury and York canonised King Charles at the urging of Charles II, and added his name to the prayer book. Charles I is the only saint formally canonised by the Church of England. The commemoration was removed from the prayer book by Queen Victoria in 1859. Several Anglican churches and chapels are dedicated to "King Charles the Martyr." The Society of King Charles the Martyr was established in 1894 to work for the restoration of the King's name to the Calendar and to encourage the veneration of the Royal Martyr. (Wikipedia)Some later editions of the Eikon Basilike contained a sworn statement by William Levett, Esq., longtime courtier and groom of the bedchamber to the King, that Levett had witnessed Charles writing the text during the time that Levett accompanied him in his imprisonment on the Isle of Wight. A witness to the King's execution, Levett later helped transport the King's body back to Windsor Castle for burial. Whoever wrote the Eikon Basilike, its author was an effective prose stylist, one who had partaken deeply of the solemn yet simple eloquence of Anglican piety as expressed in Cranmer's Book of Common Prayer. The end result is an image of a steadfast monarch who, while admitting his weaknesses, declares the truth of his religious principles and the purity of his political motives, while trusting in God despite adversity. Charles's chief weakness, it says, was in yielding to Parliament's demands for the head of the Earl of Strafford for this sin, Charles paid with his throne and his life. Its portrait of Charles as a martyr invited comparison of the King to Jesus. The pathos of this dramatic presentation made it a master stroke of Royalist propaganda. The book was quite popular despite official disapproval during the Protectorate and the Restoration it went into 36 editions in 1649 alone. In 1657 it even appeared in musical form, with a verse rendering by Thomas Stanley (author) and music by John Wilson (composer). The musical setting blended the austere style of the metrical psalter, favoured by the Puritans, with fashionable (and Catholic) instrumental accompaniment provided by an organ, theorbo, or another such continuo instrument. Because of the favourable impression the book made of the King, Parliament commissioned John Milton to write a riposte to it, which he published under the title Eikonoklastes ("The Icon-Breaker") in 1649. Milton's response sought to portray the image of Charles, and the absolute monarchy he aspired to, as idols, claiming a reverence due only to God, and therefore justly overthrown to preserve the law of God. This theological counterattack failed to dislodge the sentimental narrative of the Eikon itself from public esteem.

Of his life little is known, but his memory survives in a number of quaint works, now rare and highly prized by collectors.'. SEE also - NEIL WEIR Otolaryngology an Illustrated History, pages 90, 98 - 'The Spanish Method did not emphasize the full advantages of speechreading and it is to the credit of John Bulwer (1614-1684), the English physician and linguist, that speechreading was recognized as an important prerequisite for a successful oral education.' Most historian and commentators have concentrated upon Bulwer's pioneering work in the education of the deaf-mutes; the above work, scarcer than his works on signing though clearly interconnected, has been largely overlooked. Even PAUL EKMAN in his analytical reprint of Darwin's Expression of the Emotions of Man and Animals, discusses Duchenne's earlier monograph extensively but makes no mention of Bulwer. In his time, Darwin was the only investigator to consider the question - WHY do expressions occur in a particular form ? His proposition that the nervous system had a direct action on emotions was indeed vague and he admitted it, but it was an unexplored topic. Bulwer however discusses just this - 'Yet we allow not the Heart to be the chiefe original and seat of the Affections, which are (indeed) originally from the Head; for although in asmuch as they concern the Body, their chief seat is in the Heart, because that is chiefly alterd by them, yet forasmuch as they affect the mind also, it is onely in the Brain, because the mind can immediately suffer from this onely. And hence it follows that the Head and Face doe so manifestly by signes (exhibited by the operation of certaine Muscles) expresse the affections of the mind.' Darwin's objective in his study of the emotions was to show that both animals and humans shared structures whose operation manifested a common base and that humans were not a divinely created species. Bulwer was concerned with demonstrating that the actions of the facial muscles were a form of communication. A curious aside - Darwin was distantly related to Sir Edward Bulwer through Erasmus Earle. It would be rather nice to show that he had a familial connection with John Bulwer ! More work is needed .

        La Veronica

      1649 - Bulino, 1649, datato e firmato in basso C MELLAN G P ET F. IN AEDIBUS REG. 1649 Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata al rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. L’ opera, la più celebre e straordinaria di Claude Mellan, rappresenta la più venerabile reliquia custodia in San Pietro, un miracoloso tessuto di lino utilizzato da santa Veronica per asciugare il volto santo del Signore sulla strada del Calvario. L’immagine di Mellan, e la sua particolarità, è realizzata da una sola linea continua a spirale che, iniziando dal naso, tramite sottili variazioni di spessore e direzione, crea il volto di Cristo, il tessuto, l’iscrizione, la firma e la data. Uno degli effetti più sorprendenti dell’opera è che l’immagine è intessuta nella materia, che è sia la carta che il lino: tessuto e piastra coincidono. Il panno si arriccia all’estremità inferiore, mentre la firma e il motto fanno parte del supporto. Inoltre, le spirali descritte sono parallele e quindi infinitamente estensibili in ogni direzione. Le iscrizioni, come ha scritto Irvin Lavin. costituiscono "una sublime ambiguità che si adatta perfettamente ai misteriosi effetti polivalenti dell’immagine": FORMATUR UNICUS UNA letteralmente: Uno o l’Unico è formato da una. Unicus potrebbe riferirsi a Cristo in quanto unigenito, generato dall’Una Virgo, la Vergine Maria; oppure unicus si riferisce all’oggetto dell’Immagine, il Volto Santo, unico perché acheropita, cioè non prodotto da mano umana, ma dall’Una manus di Dio Padre che fece la vera icona sul lino della Veronica. Una potrebbe anche riferirsi alla mano dell’artista che ha formato l’immagine da una linea continua. NON ALTER: nessun altro altra anfibologia: non alter, ancora a ribadire l’unicità di Cristo, ma anche non alter a rivendicare che nessun altro, ma solo la mano di Mellan, ha riprodotto la sacra reliquia. Oggi, la lastra di rame originale per questa stampa di Mellan è nella collezione della Bibliothèque royale di Bruxelles. Engraving, 1649, dated and signed at the bottom C MELLAN G P ET F. IN AEDIBUS REG. 1649 Good impression, printend on contemporary laid paper, trimmed to the platemark, in very good condition. It is an exceptional and unique work of art for it is engraved from a unique spiral line. Mellan's virtuosity was extraordinary, and can be appreciated in his famous Holy Face (1649; Paris, Biblio- theque Nationale), which was engraved with a continuous line that The print represents the Mellan’s most famous. It reproduces the Sudarium Veronica. The Sudarium is the cloth with which, according to Christian legend, St Veronica wiped the face of Christ as He was carrying the Cross on the way to Calvary, the place of His crucifixion, and on which His features were miraculously impressed. The subject became a popular devotional image in Christian art. This image of Christ’s true likeness – a portrait which, most remarkably, had not been created by human hands – became the object of a widespread cult, with pilgrims flocking to Rome to venerate it. It also gave rise to a proliferation of copies, which in turn inspired countless works of art. The face of Christ is conjured from a continuous spiralling line that starts at the tip of the nose and is thickened in places to delineate the features and create tone. It is a demonstration of the artist’s unerring skill in guiding the burin. Starting with the tip of his burin in the centre of the plate, Mellan pushed the tool forward while simultaneously rotating the copper plate with his free hand in an anti- clockwise direction to create a near perfect spiral. In a single line and starting from the tip of Jesus' nose, Mellan has engraved the entire face, the folded veil, and the lettering below. The modulations in direction, from thick to thin, model the image in chiaroscuro (light and dark). Thus the shapes and volume of the engraving are achieved. The inscriptions have a sublime ambiguity that perfectly matches the uncanny effects of the image. On one leve [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Provincia Insvlae Sardiniae

      Torino 1649 - Carta geografica tratta dalla "Chorographica Descriptio Provinciarum et Conventum.", atlante dell'ordine dei frati cappucini. L'atlante delle province cappuccine era stato iniziato in forma manoscritta dal ministro generale dell'ordine, padre Silvestro da Panicale nel 1632 e doveva servire da sussidio geografico per le visite generali. Alla sua morte il successore Padre Giovanni di Montecaliero, al quale spesso viene erroneamente attribuita la paternità delle carte, incaricò padre Massimino da Guechen di proseguire l'opera. Gli incisori delle lastre furono appunto Massimino da Guechen, Bernardino Burdigalensis e Ludovico Monteregali. La prima edizione fu stampata a Roma nel 1643, la seconda a Torino nel 1649 e quindi nel 1654 ed infine un'altra uscì nel 1712. Per convenzione attribuiamo le mappe al Montecalerio. L'opera mostrava visivamente la diffusione dell'ordine, infatti le diverse carte dell'atlante, che rappresentano nazioni e province, offrono per ognuna di esse la statistica completa dei conventi. Incisione in rame, lievissima gora d'acqua, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. Dimensioni 315 225mm [Attributes: First Edition]

        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]

      London: Printed for F.Partridgeand H. Blunden. Original Edition (NOT a Reprint).. Overall very good. Extremely Rare !. Original Edition (NOT a Reprint). London, Printed for F.Partridgeand H. Blunden, 1649. Duodecimo. 96 unnumbered pages including portrait - titlepage. Hardcover / 18th century full calf with rebacked 20th century spine. Overall very good. Extremely Rare ! 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.

        Eikon Basilike - The Pourtraicture of His Sacred Majestie in His Solitudes and Sufferings - Together with his Private Prayers used in the time of his restraint and delivered to Dr. Juxon, Bishop of London, immediately before his death.

      [London]. Original Edition (NOT a Reprint).. Very good condition. . Original Edition (NOT a Reprint). [London], 1649. Octavo. (10, including Royal Arms Woodcut and Charles I. portrait bound in just before A3), Folded Emblemata leaf with latin and english explanations, 263 pages with an additional portrait bound in just before page 259. Hardcover / Original, early 19th century or late 18th century full calf with gilt lettering and ornament on spine. The binding was professionally restored with new pastedowns and endpapers. (Extremely professional). Very good condition. The Eikon Basilike (The "Royal Portrait"), The Pourtrature of His Sacred Majestie in His Solitudes and Sufferings, is a purported spiritual autobiography attributed to King Charles I of England. It was published on 9 February 1649, ten days after the King was beheaded by Parliament in the aftermath of the English Civil War in 1649. Written in a simple, moving, and straightforward style in the form of a diary, the book combines irenic prayers urging the forgiveness of Charles's executioners with a justification of royalism and the King's political and military programme that led to the Civil War. It is by no means certain that Charles wrote the book. After the Restoration, John Gauden, bishop of Worcester, claimed to have written it. Scholars continue to disagree about the merits of this claim, though assuming that if Gauden wrote it, he had access to Charles's papers when he did so. Jeremy Taylor is also said to have had a hand in its revision, and to be the source of its title; an earlier draft bore the name Suspiria Regalia, the "Royal Sighs." The frontispiece was engraved by William Marshall. In the first edition, the frontispiece was accompanied by Latin and English verses that explain it. The Eikon Basilike and its portrait of Charles's execution as a martyrdom were so successful that, at the Restoration, a special commemoration of the King on 30 January was added to the Book of Common Prayer, directing that the day be observed as an occasion for fasting and repentance. On 19 May 1660, the Convocation of Canterbury and York canonised King Charles at the urging of Charles II, and added his name to the prayer book. Charles I is the only saint formally canonised by the Church of England. The commemoration was removed from the prayer book by Queen Victoria in 1859. Several Anglican churches and chapels are dedicated to "King Charles the Martyr." The Society of King Charles the Martyr was established in 1894 to work for the restoration of the King's name to the Calendar and to encourage the veneration of the Royal Martyr. (Wikipedia) Some later editions of the Eikon Basilike contained a sworn statement by William Levett, Esq., longtime courtier and groom of the bedchamber to the King, that Levett had witnessed Charles writing the text during the time that Levett accompanied him in his imprisonment on the Isle of Wight. A witness to the King's execution, Levett later helped transport the King's body back to Windsor Castle for burial. Whoever wrote the Eikon Basilike, its author was an effective prose stylist, one who had partaken deeply of the solemn yet simple eloquence of Anglican piety as expressed in Cranmer's Book of Common Prayer. The end result is an image of a steadfast monarch who, while admitting his weaknesses, declares the truth of his religious principles and the purity of his political motives, while trusting in God despite adversity. Charles's chief weakness, it says, was in yielding to Parliament's demands for the head of the Earl of Strafford; for this sin, Charles paid with his throne and his life. Its portrait of Charles as a martyr invited comparison of the King to Jesus. The pathos of this dramatic presentation made it a master stroke of Royalist propaganda. The book was quite popular despite official disapproval during the Protectorate and the Restoration; it went into 36 editions in 1649 alone. In 1657 it even appeared in musical form, with a verse rendering by Thomas Stanley (author) and music by John Wilson (composer). The musical setting blended the austere style of the metrical psalter, favoured by the Puritans, with fashionable (and Catholic) instrumental accompaniment provided by an organ, theorbo, or another such continuo instrument. Because of the favourable impression the book made of the King, Parliament commissioned John Milton to write a riposte to it, which he published under the title Eikonoklastes ("The Icon-Breaker") in 1649. Milton's response sought to portray the image of Charles, and the absolute monarchy he aspired to, as idols, claiming a reverence due only to God, and therefore justly overthrown to preserve the law of God. This theological counterattack failed to dislodge the sentimental narrative of the Eikon itself from public esteem.

        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]

      London, Printed for F.Partridgeand H. Blunden, 1649. - 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 ! 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.

        Observationes politicae, super nuperis Galliae motibus.

      - (Holland?), 1649. 12:o. 110 s. Enstaka lager- och småfläckar. Fina marginaler. Fint rött halvmarokängband från mitten av 1800-talet, guldornerad rygg, röda pappärmar med förgylld ram, något blekt rygg. Äldre namnteckning ?Recklin?? på titelbladet. Ur Ericsbergs bibliotek. Collijn sp. 778. Se Runeby s. 410ff. Detta är duodesupplagan, som troligen är tryckt i Holland. I Paris trycktes tidigare samma år en upplaga i kvarto. Detta är ett konstitutionellt ställningstagande av Rosenhane mot enväldiga tyranner, personifierade av kardinal Mazarin, vilken Rosenhane i skriften direkt angriper. Rosenhane förfäktar här samma åsiker och synpunkter som han framfört i den svenska debatten, nämligen att makten skulle delas mellan monarken och rådet, dvs högadeln. Diplomaten, riksrådet och hovmannen Schering Rosenhane (1609-63) skickades 1647, efter att ha varit observatör vid fredsförhandlingarna i Münster, som svensk minister till Paris, med uppdrag att skaffa franska subsidier till Sverige. Rosenhane sympatiserade dock med Frondens opposition mot Mazarin, vilket misskrediterade honom hos denne, och efter att ha publicerat denna broschyr, vilken fick mycket uppmärksamhet, blev situationen för Rosenhane omöjlig i Paris och Kristina fick återkalla honom till Sverige. Han skickades dock genast ut på nya uppdrag. Närmast hamnade han som medlare mellan Sverige och ärkestiftet Bremen.
