      Puebla de los Angeles: Por el Bachiller Iuan Blanco Alcaçar, 1649. Small 4to. [6] ff. (last a blank). Puebla was the second city in New Spain to obtain a printing press, issuing its first book in 1642, not 1640 as Medina claimed. The man responsible for the press's arrival was the same eminent figure mentioned on the title-page of this extremely rare volume: Don Juan de Palafox y Mendoza. Bishop, later viceroy, Palafox, was one of the most interesting and controversial figures to reside in Mexico during the 17th century. Born in Fitero, Navarre, Spain, in 1600, the illegitimate but recognized son of Jaime Palafox, the Marqués of Ariza, he rose in the service of the Church in Spain through his native talent and his father's connections. In 1640, the king appointed him the bishop of Puebla, Mexico, with special powers to serve concurrently as a visitador, or special investigator, specifically charging him with reforming the various religious orders (Jesuits, Franciscans, Dominicans, etc.) who seemed to defy and stymie the king's will at every turn, and who had grown to be more secular in behavior than was seemly, legal, customary, or acceptable.    The bishop's efforts as visitador met with dogged resistance, even from the viceroy, whom Palafox suspected of being a sympathizer with the Portuguese separatists (and whom he was to succeed). => The various orders initiated protracted legal opposition to everything Palafox attempted.    Notwithstanding the imposing odds against him, Palafox did have his share of unqualified accomplishments during his years in Mexico: He composed and saw into print the codification of the constitution of the Royal and Pontifical University of Mexico, established a school for girls, founded the famous Palafoxiana Library in Puebla with a donation of 6,000 volumes, and introduced printing in Puebla, Mexico's second largest city during the colonial period.    The printer of this rarity was Bachiller Juan Blanco de Alcaçar (or Alcazar), almost certainly the first printer to set up a press in Puebla de los Angeles. Like many of Mexico's printers of the late 16th and early 17th centuries, Juan de Alcazar (as he generally identified himself in documents) was well educated: He held a bachelor's degree from the Royal and Pontifical University of Mexico. He began his life as a printer in Mexico City in 1617 and there printed several major books, including Fray Martín de León's Manual [y] breve forma de administrar los santos sacramentos a los yndios (1617) and Diego Cisneros's Sitio, naturaleza y propriedades de la ciudad de México (1618). His name disappears from imprint lines of Mexican title-pages and colophons in 1637 to reappear on title-pages printed in Puebla at least as early as 1643; some attribute the "anonymously" printed pieces of 1642 to his press work and more than a few think he printed the even earlier, suppositious Arco triunfal of Mateo Salcedo. From the notarial archives of Puebla we know that he had moved his press to that city by December 1641, and that in January 1642, he had begun to hire apprentices (Pérez Salazar, Los impresores de Puebla en la época colonial [1987 edition], pp. 9?12). The bachiller's "in" ("enchufe" in Spanish) with Bishop Palafox was a strong one: His wife was the sister of Don Luis de Monzón, the Treasurer of the Puebla cathedral (Pérez Salazar, p. 16).    The work at hand, which Bishop Palafox ordered to be printed, explains changes in the newly adopted Ceremonial that affect when congregants sit, kneel, and genuflect. It was => an important work, affecting every communicant at every mass attended.    Searches of NUC Pre-1956, WorldCat, COPAC, CCPBE, BRUIN, and the OPACs of the national library of Spain and Mexico, located only three copies in U.S. libaries and two in Mexican institutions.    Apparently all institutional copies lack the final blank, present in this exemplar and bearing => contemporary manuscript poetry on both sides.         Not in Medina, Puebla; not in Palau; Gavito, Adiciones a La imprenta en la Puebla, 2.

        Les passions de l'ame.

      Paris: chez Henry Le Gras, au troisième pilier de la grand' Salle du Palais, à L couronnée, 1649. First edition of Descartes's important psychological treatise, one of his most influential works, and the last work published before his death in the following year. This is a fine copy in an untouched contemporary binding. "Les passions de l'ame, which drew heavily on the then-unpublished Traité de l'homme, contains the application of Descartes's mechanistic physiology to the relationship between mind and body. Descartes made an essential distinction between the soul as the divinely-endowed seat of consciousness, will and rational thought, and the body as a machine or automaton subject to the laws of physics, and only indirectly controlled by the soul through the nerves. Using this dualistic model, he was able to make the important distinction between voluntary and involuntary actions, a distinction discussed further in the Traité. Descartes located the soul in the pineal gland, which thus served as the locus for interaction between soul and body; he had defined the pineal gland's function in the Traité, but Les passions de l'ame contains his first published account of it. The work also contains the first use of the word "reflex" in connection with the action of the nervous system" (Norman). "Cartesian dualism . . . gave great impetus to the development of psychology in its own right" (Hunter & Macalpine, Three Hundred Years of Psychiatry, p. 133). Cartesian theories had a great deal of influence on the way that mental pathologies were considered throughout the entire 17th century and during much of the 18th century, but the link between the pineal gland and psychiatric disorders was definitively highlighted in the 20th century, with the discovery of melatonin in 1958. The first edition of Passions of the Soul was apportioned between the Elseviers of Amsterdam and Henry le Gras of Paris. There is no priority between the two versions; they are equally rare. The origins of Passions of the Soul lie partly in Descartes's Meditations on First Philosophy (1641): in the Sixth Meditation he had sought to justify the way in which we are equipped to respond to the outside world by experiencing sensations, appetites, and passions. He argued that such perceptions provide guides for maneuvering our bodies through the world, and ultimately for preserving the mind-body union that constitutes the human being. But the main impetus for writing the Passions was his correspondence with Princess Elisabeth of Bohemia from 1643 to 1645. Elisabeth, almost twenty years younger than Descartes, was one of the great princesses of Europe, the daughter, granddaughter and great-granddaughter of kings. She was a person of remarkable intelligence and unusually well read at a time when women were generally denied the kind of education their brothers received. Elisabeth asked Descartes most searchingly about his dualistic theory qua theory; she also asked him for advice about her own physical and mental health (she was probably suffering depression owing to the misfortunes of her house both at home and abroad - the English King Charles I was her uncle). Her requests and Descartes' replies frequently bear on the relationship between the body and the mind. "The Passions of the Soul is the last of Descartes's works to be published in his lifetime. It is his fullest account of the interaction between soul and body, and his most significant contribution to moral philosophy. Not that he sets himself up as a moral philosopher: he says that his intention is to explain the passions purely as a natural philosopher (physicien), not, as Aristotle had done, from the point of view of rhetoric or moral philosophy. However, he does not confine himself to a purely descriptive approach: his theory opens up a prescriptive dimension. Thus, the first part of the text explains the nature of passion in general, the second describes the principal passions, and the third the further passions that derive from these; but each part ends with some definite recommendations concerning the attitudes or behavior we should adopt in the light of the foregoing explanations ... "Though he dismisses all earlier writings on the subject, Descartes's account of the passions shows continuities with that of earlier thinkers. Like Aristotle and Aquinas, for instance, he sees the passions as involving interaction between body and soul. But his theory does involve a radical break with other aspects of their accounts. Essentially, he argues that the soul is nothing other than the mind: it is not the support of the organic functions of life. These can be explained in purely mechanical terms. To show this, Descartes briefly describes the workings of the body in terms of its key organs and processes: digestion, the circulation of the blood via the veins into the heart and so to the rest of the body through the arteries; and the movement of the muscles by contraction and extension, in response to the action of the nerves, little filaments originating in the brain and responsible also for sensation. The source of all these processes is a kind of fire kept going in the heart by the blood supplied by the veins. This fire dilates or rarefies the blood, so causing it to flow to different parts of the body. But the most rarefied parts of the blood, what Descartes calls the animal spirits, flow into the brain and out again into the nerves and thence into the muscles, where they produce movement. The animal spirits are described as tiny and fast-moving bodies comparable to the particles of a flame (§§7-10). Their movement is closely related to sensation. Sensory stimuli, external or internal, set off movements in the nerves, which are transmitted to the brain. These can cause movements of the animal spirits, and hence of the muscles. Such motions can be accounted for purely mechanically ... "Descartes analyses the passions as perceptions in the soul of a bodily process. To that extent they are akin to sense-perceptions of external objects or internal perceptions of bodily states such as hunger and pain. In sense-perception the light of a torch and the clang of a bell arouse different movements in our nerves, which are then transmitted to the brain, so as to produce different sensations in the soul (note that the sensation, as such, occurs only in the soul; what occurs in the brain is a movement). But there is an element of confusion in the perception. We seem to see the light of the torch in the room, to hear the bell ring in the church tower. Likewise with our internal perceptions: we feel a dryness in our throat, a pain in our injured foot. But in each case, what we are in fact aware of is a sensation representing an external object or a bodily state (the pain we feel 'in' our foot is produced by the same mechanism as the pain an amputee feels 'in' the limb that has been removed). Again, as regards the passions, we feel anger or joy 'in' our soul, whereas we are in fact reacting to a physical process produced by a sense-perception (seeing behavior of which we disapprove or hearing the voice of someone we are fond of). "The passions, then, can be defined as 'perceptions, or sensations, or emotions of the soul that we refer (rapportons) particularly to the soul itself, and that are caused, sustained, and fortified by some movement of the spirits' (§27). 'Perceptions' in the general sense of thoughts rather than volitions, but not the kind of perception involved in evident knowledge; 'sensations' in that they reach the soul by the same path as sense-perceptions; 'emotions' in that, more than any other kind of thought, they are liable to agitate and disturb the soul (§28). Descartes emphasizes the involvement of the animal spirits in order to distinguish passion as such from acts of will, which we also experience as in the soul, but rightly, because they do originate within it (§29). "The mediating agency between body and soul is identified by Descartes as a part of the brain called the pineal gland. Though undoubtedly erroneous, Descartes's ascription of this function to the gland is a brilliant piece of reasoning. He notes that the other parts of the brain are all doubled, as are our sense-organs; so that we need one single part, like the gland, in which the two-fold impressions received from our sense-organs can be fused into one (§§30-3). "Descartes is now in a position to reconstruct the whole process of passion. It begins in sensation: to use his example, an animal appears in our field of vision. Light reflected from its body affects our optic nerve, producing two images, one for each eye, on the inner surface of the brain. The surrounding spirits transmit these to the pineal gland, which blends them into a single image. The gland transmits this to the soul, and we see the animal ... "Having explained the general mechanism of the passions, Descartes proceeds, in the second part of the text, to explain how the specific passions are generated. He identifies six basic passions, classified in respect of the various ways in which objects of sense-perception can harm or benefit us: wonderment, love, hate, desire, joy, sadness. This taxonomy differs markedly from two influential earlier schemes, those of the Stoics and of Aquinas. Along with each basic passion, he identifies its major derivatives (§§51-69). He then goes through the basic passions again, defining them in more detail and describing the particular physical processes that accompany each one (§§70-111). Next, he reviews the external manifestations of these passions: movements of the eyes, facial expression, changes of colour, trembling, lethargy, fainting, laughter, tears, groans, and sighs (§§112-35). (His discussion of facial expressions is generally held to have inspired seventeenth-century art theorists' attempts to codify the expression of the passions in painting.) In the third part, he discusses the derivative passions in detail, along the same lines as the principal ones" (Moriarty (tr.), The Passions of the Soul and Other Late Philosophical Writings, pp. xviii-xxiv).   "The final essential thread in this account of emotions is the Cartesian theory of conditioning ... 'Our soul and our body are so linked that, if we have once joined some bodily action with a certain thought, one of them does not occur subsequently without the other also occurring. We see this, for example, in those who have taken some medicine with great revulsion when they were ill, and cannot afterwards eat or drink anything that has a similar taste without immediately feeling the same revulsion. Likewise, they cannot think of their revulsion from medicines without the same taste returning in their thought.' This innate connection between specific thoughts or feelings and bodily states tends to continue indefinitely unless changed by new connections that displace them. However, the primitive connections can also be expanded to include novel relations between mental states and bodily states, even in the case of stimuli that have no natural connection with the feelings they trigger. Descartes had noticed that animals can be conditioned to respond to novel stimuli, long before Pavlov studied the same phenomenon in the twentieth century and gave his name to it. 'This is so certain that if you whipped a dog five or six times to the sound of a violin, I believe that it would begin to howl and run away when it hears that music again'. Evidently, the same kind of conditioning works in the case of human beings. 'If people have at some time in the past enjoyed dancing while a certain tune was being played, then the desire to dance will return to them as soon as they hear a similar tune again. On the contrary, if others have never heard the music for a galliard without falling into some misfortune, they would infallibly become sad as soon as they heard it again' ... "Descartes' book on human emotions was published in Amsterdam and Paris, toward the end of November 1649. He had drafted a large part of it during the winter of 1645-46 and had sent it to Elisabeth. Elisabeth's reply included suggestions for improvement that, almost out of character, were accepted by the author. Even with additions and corrections, however, this still amounted to only about two-thirds of the final text. Descartes made a clean copy of the revised text and sent it to Chanut [the French ambassador to Sweden], with permission to show it to Queen Christina. At about the same time, he had a request from an unidentified correspondent who had met him on his trip to Paris, had heard about the essay on the passions, and had apparently offered to assist the author in getting the final version into print. Descartes explained that his reluctance to release the manuscript had nothing to do with an unwillingness to serve his reading public. He wanted to keep the essay confidential as long as possible, partly because it had been composed originally 'only to be read by a princess whose mind is so above the norm that she easily understands what seems most difficult to our doctors'. However, Descartes relented and promised 'to revise this writing on the passions, to add what I think is necessary to make it more intelligible. After that, I shall send it to you and you may do what you wish with it.' "In the spring of 1649, Descartes also sent a copy of the revised manuscript to Clerselier in Paris [Claude Clerselier met Descartes in Paris in 1644 and published the French edition of the Meditations in 1647]. Clerselier advised him that it was too difficult for ordinary readers. This prompted a further revision and plans for the addition of most of the material that was published as Part III of the book. When he wrote to Clerselier, in April 1649, he probably still had done little more than think about the additions that remained to be written: 'As regards the Treatise on the Passions, I do not expect it to be printed until I have arrived in Sweden. For I neglected to revise it and to add the things that you thought were missing, which would have increased its size by a third. It will contain three parts, of which the first will be about the passions in general and, as required, the nature of the soul, etc.; the second part will be about the six primitive passions, and the third part about all the others.' Descartes seems to have been procrastinating at this stage, and to have been concerned primarily with a decision about going to Sweden

        Nova et Accurata Poli Arctici et terrarum Circum Lacentium Descriptio

      Jansson, J., Amsterdam 1649 - This impressive map of the North Pole and the Arctic by Jan Jansson was issued in 1649. It covers the North Polar Regions including the northern coastlines of Asia, Europe, Greenland and North America. Inlcudes Nova Zembla, Spitsbergen and Iceland. Based on an earlier 1636 map by Hondius, this map, with some updates, became the prototype for many later maps including those of Blaeu and Pitt. The western coast of North America, relatively unknown at the time, is conveniently hidden behind the elaborate title cartouche.The striking feature of this map are the rhumb lines that radiate from the North Pole. Rather than the straight lines commonly seen, this map presents curved rhumb lines to reflect a straight line path, given the curvature of the Earth. Several compass roses are included and ships are seen sailing in the waters. The tile cartouche features two men and several wind cherubs. Another cartouche in the lower right features two northern hunters, two foxes and a bear.There are five known states of this map, this being the second state identified by the legend added below the title cartouche. In good condition with minor wear and some foxing near the original centerfold. Minor verso repairs top and bottom margins of centerfold. Deluxe margins added to fit into an atlas.Jan Jansson was part of an influential family of map publishers from the Netherlands throughout the 17th century and beyond. They were based in Arnhem then in Amsterdam. They were printers, publishers and booksellers. Major publications were under the joint ownership of the Jansson heirs and their printing empire. This is a beautiful example of his work. Map. Hand colored engraving. Image measures 16" x 20.5".

        Geometria, à Renato Des Cartes Anno 1637 Gallicè edita; nunc autem cum notis Florimondi De Beaune, in curia Bloesensi consilliari regii, in linguam Latinam versa, & commentariis illustrata, operâ atque studio Francisci à Schooten...

      Leyden: Jean Maire, 1649. First edition in Latin and first separate edition of Descartes's magnum opus (DSB), one of the key texts in the history of mathematics. It was originally published in French as the third part of the Discours de la Méthode; the French text was not issued separately until 1664. Descartes' "application of modern algebraic arithmetic to ancient geometry created the analytical geometry which was the basis of the post-Euclidean development of that science" (PMM). It "rendered possible the later achievements of seventeenth-century mathematical physics" (M. B. Hall, Nature and nature's laws (1970), p. 91). It was through this Latin translation that Newton and the other contemporary mathematicians acquired an understanding of Descartes's work. Descartes' interest in geometry was stimulated when, in 1631, Jacob Golius (1596-1667), a professor of mathematics and oriental languages at Leyden, sent Descartes a geometrical problem, that of 'Pappus on three or four lines'. It had originally been posed and solved shortly before the time of Euclid in a work called Five books concerning solid loci by Aristaeus, and was then studied by Apollonius and later by Pappus. But the solution was lost in the 17th century, and the problem became an important test case for Descartes. Claude Hardy, a contemporary at the time of its solution, later reported to Leibniz the difficulties that Descartes had met in solving it (it took him six weeks), which 'disabused him of the small opinion he had held of the analysis of the ancients'. The Pappus problem is a thread running through the entire work. Book One is entitled 'Problems the construction of which requires only straight lines and circles,' and it is in this opening book that Descartes details his geometrical analysis, that is, how geometrical problems are to be formulated algebraically. It begins with the geometrical interpretation of algebraic operations, which Descartes had already explored in the early period of his mathematical research. However, what we are presented in 1637 is a "gigantic innovation" both over Descartes' previous work and the work of his contemporaries (Guicciardini, p. 38). On the one hand, Descartes offers a geometrical interpretation of root extraction and thus treats five arithmetical operations. Crucially, he also uses a new exponential notation (e.g. x3), which replaces the traditional cossic notation of early modern algebra, and allows Descartes to tighten the connection between algebra and geometry. Descartes proceeds to describe how one is to give an algebraic interpretation of a geometrical problem: 'If, then, we wish to solve any problem, we first suppose the solution already effected, and give names to all the lines that seem needful for its construction, to those that are unknown as well as to those that are known. Then, making no distinction between unknown and unknown lines, we must unravel the difficulty in any way that shows most naturally the relations between these lines, until we find it possible to express a single quantity in two ways. This will constitute an equation, since the terms of one of these two expressions are together equal to the terms of the other.' Descartes applies his geometrical analysis to solve the four-line case of the Pappus problem, and shows how the analysis can be generalized to apply to the general, n-line version of the problem, which had not been solved by the ancients. Book Two, entitled 'On the Nature of Curved Lines,' commences with Descartes' famous distinction between 'geometric' and 'mechanical' curves. For Pappus, 'plane' curves were those constructible by ruler and compass, 'solid' curves were the conic sections, and 'linear' curves were the rest, such as the conchoids, the spiral, the quadratrix and the cissoid. The linear curves were also called 'mechanical' by the ancient Greeks because instruments were needed to construct them. Following Descartes, the supremacy of algebraic criteria became established: curves were defined by equations with integer degrees. Algebra thus brought to geometry the most natural hierarchies and principles of classification. This was extended by Newton to fractional and irrational exponents, and by Leibniz to 'variable' exponents (gradus indefinitus, or transcendental in modern terminology). Book Three, entitled 'The construction of solid, and higher than solid problems,' is devoted to the theory of equations and the geometrical construction of their roots. "The abundance and variety of results in this section is remarkable. A number of the interesting results presented are not altogether new, some being due to Girolamo Cardano, Thomas Harriot and Albert Girard. The exposition is, however, clear and systematic, and expressed for the first time in history in modern notation... These results were taken up and extended by Newton in Arithmetica universalis (1707), in lectures between 1673 and 1683... Descartes is also interested in the number of real roots, and asserts without justification that the maximum number of positive or negative roots of an equation is that of the alternances or permanences of the signs '+' and ' ' between consecutive coefficients. This is the celebrated 'rule of signs', which earned unfounded criticism for Descartes. Newton took up and extended the matter in the De limitibus aequationum, which concludes the Arithmetica universalis. The result was proved in the 18th century" (Landmark Writings, pp. 13-14). Book Three concludes with a discussion of the geometrical construction of roots of equations by means of intersecting curves, particularly cubic and quartic equations which Descartes treats using a circle and a parabola. The editor and translator of this edition, Frans van Schooten (1615-60), first saw the Géométrie at Leiden, as Descartes had come there to supervise the printing of the Discours. "After the death of his father in 1645, Schooten took over his academic duties. He also worked on a Latin translation of Descartes' Géométrie. Although Descartes was not completely satisfied with Schooten's version (1649), it found a broad and receptive audience by virtue of its more carefully executed figures and its full commentary. It was from Schooten's edition of the Géométrie that contemporary mathematicians lacking proficiency in French first learned Cartesian mathematics. In this mathematics they encountered a systematic presentation of the material, not the customary, more classificatory approach that essentially listed single propositions, for the most part in unconnected parallel. Further, in the Cartesian scheme the central position was occupied by algebra, which Descartes considered to be the only 'precise form of mathematics'." (DSB, under Schooten). Schooten included in the present edition the 'Notae breves' of Florimonde De Beaune (1601-52), a French jurist and amateur mathematician, which contains what became known as 'De Beaune's problem', the important problem of determining a curve from the properties of its tangent. De Beaune's notes evidently pleased Descartes, who wrote to him on 20 February 1639: "J'ai admiré que vous ayez pu reconnaître des choses que je n'y ai mises qu'obscurément comme en ce qui regarde la généralité de la méthode."

Salmasius's defense of King Charles I, bound together with its counterpart by John Milton. The present edition of Salmasius's work is a reprint, according to Rahir published the same year by Janssonius from Amsterdam. According to Willems, our Milton-edition is the second of two editions, enlarged with six index-leaves, published by Louis Elzevier and usually bound together with Salmasius's Defensio, also published by Louis Elzevier, in 1652. Salmasius undertook the defense of King Charles I, already at a time when opinion in the Netherlands was still undecided. Salmasius's work was soon countered by John Milton, a strong defender of the republican principles represented by the Commonwealth. Decorative elements: in Salmasius: Title page with fleural ornament, a headpiece, an endpiece and two 5-line decorated woodcut initials. And in Milton: Title page with the Arms of the Commonwealth, a headpiece, an endpiece, and two 6- and 7-line decorated woodcut initials. Name in ink on flyleaf and Salmasij written on title page.

        PROTEO LEGATO. DESCRITTO DAL CONTE OTTAVIO BREMBATO. Libri quattro

      1649. In Bergamo per Marc'Antonio Rossi 1649 4° Pagine 1 incisione a piena pagina al recto della seconda carta, con funzioni di antiporta, ad opera di Giacomo Cotta (Proteo, Flora e sopra di loro lo Zodiaco) + 6 non numerate + 199 + 9 non numerate + 1 carta bianca. Legatura coeva in cartone rustico. Marca al frontespizio (un albero il cui tronco è avvolto da un nastro sul quale figura il motto Decus et tutamen; sullo sfondo una città). Alcune sporadiche macchie e fioriture. Ottima copia in barbe. Prima edizione. Bizzarra, originale, quanto rara opera del Conte Brembato. Fino alla pagina 176 narra le vicende di vari personaggi mitologici o para-mitologici, tra i quali sono protagonisti Flora, Proteo e Vertunno. Quest'ultimo descrive - lo ricordo perché è il passaggio più interessante di questa parte dell'opera - un pranzo che egli prepara per sé con un numero inquietante di portate, idonee a nutrire un esercito. Fin qui, dunque, è un'opera che oggi si definirebbe di fantasy. Da pagina 176 (Coltura di Polifide. Documenti generali, che seruono à tutti i capi de' fiori), senza preavviso, l'opera diventa botanico-astrologica e si articola in 13 capitoli. Brembato fornisce indicazioni precise per la semina e la conservazione dei bulbi e indica, associandoli, i rapporti tra i colori e i Pianeti. Si tratta di temi già trattati; così non è, invece, quanto al rapporto che l'Autore delinea fra i Pianeti e gli odori, tracciato, tale rapporto, secondo i dati della tradizione astrologica: così, Saturno, Pianeta ritenuto malefico, è fetente; Marte, anch'esso malefico, è spiacevole; Giove e Venere, pianeti benefici, rispettivamente, gratissimo e giocondissimo; il Sole e la Luna, mancanti d'odore; Mercurio, infine, secondo la natura di quel pianeta col quale s'accosta. Cfr: Biblioastrology N° 1133
