Albertus was active in practically all departments of learning - theological, philosophical, scientific - and his influence in all these directions was immense. He combined elements of Aristotelianism, Neo-Platonism, Christian theology and Muslin and Jewish philosophy, which he formed into one great system; but his chief aim as a philosopher remained the reconciliation of Aristotelianism with Christian teaching. His system became one of the bases of scholasticism all over Europe. Thomas Aquinas attended his lectures. Since Albertus's system was essentially a compilation, his standing in philosophy and theology may be challenged by others: but he was the most important observer of nature that the Middle Ages had yet produced, the greatest naturalist since Pliny. He wrote in the form of paraphrases of Aristotle, into which he interpolated his personal observations of natural and scientific phenomena, and he had at least a conception of the importance of experimentalism." (Printing in the Mind of Man 17). <br> Albertus Magnus was an one of the most influential scientific minds of the Middle Ages. He made significant contributions to logic, psychology, metaphysics, chemistry [discoverer of arsenic], meteorology, mineralogy, and zoology. (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy). Much of modern knowledge of Aristotle and the introduction of Aristotelian thought into Western Europe comes from Albert's work. Additionally, Albert comments on Arab thinkers, such as Avicenna (see De Anima, vol. 3 in this work) and Averroes.

        Leviathan, Or, The Matter, Form, And Power of a Common-Wealth...

      1651. The "Ornaments" Edition of Hobbes's Leviathan, The Last with Authorial Corrections Hobbes, Thomas [1588-1679]. Leviathan, Or, The Matter, Form, And Power of a Common-Wealth Ecclesiastical and Civil. London: Printed for Andrew Crooke, At the Green Dragon in St. Pauls Church-yard, 1651 [i.e. 1680]. [vi], 250, 249-256, 261-394 [i.e. 396] pp. Text continuous despite pagination. Main title page, with upside down triangle of 25 ornaments grouped in 5 rows, preceded by copperplate pictorial title page. Folding table. Folio (11-3/4" x 7-1/2"). Recent period-style calf, original paneled calf boards laid down, gilt-edged raised bands and lettering piece to spine, endpapers renewed. Some gatoring and a few scuffs to boards, some chipping to edges of retained boards. Moderate toning to text, faint dampstining in a few places, faint dampspotting to a few leaves. Recent owner signature to front pastedown, early owner signature to head of pictorial title page, tiny early initials to foot. A nice copy. * Third edition, with the final corrections by the author, the so-called "ornaments" edition distinguished by a title page device consisting of an inverted triangle of 25 ornaments grouped in five rows. One of the greatest works of political science, Leviathan analyzes the structure of society and legitimate government and is one of the most influential statements of social contract theory (under the rule of an absolute sovereign). Written during the time of the English Civil War, it is notable for its deeply pessimistic view of human nature. The early editions of Leviathan, all with the famous pictorial title page, list the same publisher and publication date: Andrew Crooke, 1651. They are distinguished by slight variations in the spelling of the title and the devices on their title pages. The first has a winged cherub's head, the second, actually printed in 1678, has a bear grasping two sprays of foliage. It was followed by the present issue. The ESTC gives a publication date of 1680, but some sources place its publication date between 1695 and 1702. Hobbes, Leviathan, ed. Noel Malcom (2014) 312-316. Printing and the Mind of Man 138.

        Exercitationes de generatione animalium.

      typis Du-Gardianis; impensis Octaviani Pulleyn in Coemeterio Paulino, London 1651 - 4to (220 x 155 mm). [28] 301 [3] pp. Signatures: pi4 (pi1 blank) a4 B-2S4 (blank 2S4), 167 of 168 leaves (lacking first blank), errata on 2S3v. pi2, etched title; pi3, printed title with woodcut device; woodcut headpieces and initials. pi2, the etched title-page, is here bound as a recto and the stub of the blank pi1 is between pi3 and pi4. Contemporary sheep, gilt ruled sides and spine (head and tail of spine and joints repaired, corners worn, surface of leather pitted). Text browned throughout but the etched title-page clean and in good impression, worm holes and tracks in the lower margins just touching the lower rule border of the etched title-page, small hole in leaf S1 affecting two letters, light dampstains at lower margin toward the end. Provenance: Old ink signature on printed title-page scored through; library of Walter Pagel (ownership mark to front pastedown). ---- Norman 1011; Keynes 34; Wing H1091; ESTC R17816; Garrison-Morton 467; Wellcome III, p. 219. First edition. Harvey's second great contribution to physiology, this is one of the classics of embryology. The problem of generation was a much more difficult one than the circulation of the blood. It occupied Harvey for most of his life and in the end it was not susceptible to a full solution in his time. The great contributions of this book were however of huge significance. Harvey's doctrine that every living thing comes from an egg; his insistence on epigenesis as opposed to preformation of the embryo; and his rejection of spontaneous generation are only three of the ten of Harvey's achievements in this book identified by Needham (History of Embryology, pp. 149-50). In addition, the last part of the book is a treatise on gynaecology and obstetrics drawing on Harvey's own practice which though celebrated in Herbert Spencer's 1921 Harveian Oration, seems to have been little discussed since then. The famous and often reproduced engraved title, unsigned but attributed to Richard Gaywood (c. 1630-1680), shows the figure of Jove taking the top off a large egg, out of which escape a flurry of small creatures. On the egg is the legend Ex ovo omnia, everything from an egg, the central pillar of Harvey's theory of generation. It was probably Gaywood who also etched a portrait of Harvey that was originally intended for the book but which was suppressed before publication. (On the etched title-page and portrait see Keynes, Life of Harvey, pp. 332-334 and plates XXVIII and XXIX.). R. Gaskell, Books from the Library of Walter Pagel, Pt. 2, 84.

Wesentlich erweiterte zweite Ausgabe der philologischen und germanistischen Vorarbeit zu seiner 1663 erschienenen 'Ausführlichen Arbeit von der Teutschen Haubtsprache', die ihm im 19. Jahrhundert den Titel eines "Jacob Grimm des 17. Jahrhunderts" einbrachte. Die erste Ausgabe war 1641 erschienen. Schottelius (1612-1676) war Mitglied der Fruchtbringenden Gesellschaft und gilt als der bedeutendste Sprachforscher und Grammatiker des Jahrhunderts. Wie viele seiner Zeitgenossen propagierte er die Schaffung einer allgemein gültigen Hochsprache in Deutschland. Anders aber als die Dichter, die z. B. wegen der Reimprobleme vom Sprachklang ausgingen und die obersächsische Umgangssprache, das "Meißnische", als Inbegriff des Hochdeutschen priesen, forderte Schottelius als erster eine einheitliche, systematisierte Orthographie als Grundlage einer verbindlichen Hochsprache. "Schottel hat in diesem bedeutsamen Werk die Summe des Wissens der damaligen Zeit über die deutsche Sprache und seine eigenen grammatischen Studien zusammengetragen" (Seebaß).

        Comedies, Tragi-comedies, with other Poems the Ayres and Songs set by Mr Henry Lawes, Servant to his late Majesty in His public and private Musick

      London, Printed for Humphrey Moseley 1651. - 8vo., pp. [122, wanting the blank leaf **8], 148, [4], 306, 301-320, with the very scarce copperplate portrait frontispiece by Lombart (supplied), facing an eighteenth century copy by Richardson; neat repair to blank lower corner of I2; a fine copy with good margins although the side-note on b2 has been cropped; late nineteenth-century panelled calf, rebacked with original spine, edges gilt, morocco labels.First edition of the witty and elegant drama and verse of a celebrated 'son of Ben', who said 'My son Cartwright writes like a man'. According to Evelyn, Charles I reckoned The Royall Slave 'the best that was ever acted' after he saw it as the main entertainment on the royal progress to Oxford in 1636. When Cartwright died young of camp fever at Oxford in 1643, he was mourned personally by Charles, who wore black on the day of his funeral. No fewer than fifty-six commendatory poems by Katherine Philips, Henry, Thomas and Francis Vaughan, Izaak Walton, John Fell, James Howell et al. preface the work.This volume 'is the sole authority for three of the four plays and for about half of the minor poems', and it forms the basis of the standard modern edition (ed. G. Blakemore Evans, Madison, Wisconsin, 1951). Evans provides an elaborate bibliographical introduction (modified in part in 1957 by W. W. Greg), for a 'perplexing' book which underwent considerable adjustment and correction in the press. Our copy, with the exception of the missing blank **8, is complete and includes the duplicate leaves U1-3 with blank spaces where 18 royalist lines were removed. The directions to the binder (usually cropped) are present at the foot of 1r and ****1r.Wing C 709; Hayward 104; Greg, III, 1029-31. Language: English

        Amerique Septentrionale

      Paris: N. Sanson & P. Mariette, 1651. Copper-engraved map, with original outline colour. The rare second state of this highly important map of North America by the founder of the French School of cartography. This very rare map is the most geographically progressive portrayal of the continent made at its time, and was not superseded until Vincenzo Maria Coronelli's map of 1688. Importantly, it is the first map to depict the Great Lakes in a recognizable form, and the first to name Lake Ontario and Lake Superior. In his rendering of the region, Sanson benefited from having received a copy of The Jesuit Relations , published in Paris in 1649, a detailed account by French missionaries who had traveled in the region. Most notably, this included Father Paul Ragueneau's account of his visit to Niagara Falls and Jean Nicollet's discovery of Lake Michigan, "Lac des Puans," in 1634. Down the St. Lawrence River from the lakes, Montréal is named, the settlement having been founded by the Sieur de Maisonneuve in 1642. Elsewhere, to the north, a mysterious strait weaves over "New South Wales" on Hudson's Bay, terminating in the interior of the continent, a blank space labeled as "Mer Glaciale". This alludes to the existence of a much hoped-for Northwest Passage. On the eastern seaboard, the map notes "N[ouvelle] Amsterdam" in the place of present day New York, and is the first printed map to label "N[ouvelle] Suede," referring to the Swedish colony centered on Fort Christina, founded on the site of present-day Wilmington, Delaware in 1638. To the far southwest, Sanson based his depiction on the Father Alonso Benavides Memorial , a travel account of New Mexico, published in Madrid in 1630. It is the first printed map to label "S[anta] Fe" (which is incorrectly shown to be on the banks of the Rio Grande) and the domains of various native tribes such as the "Apache," "Navajo" and the "Taosij" (Taos). To the west, California is shown as a large island, and features some of the same nomenclature as found on Johannes de Laet's map of 1630. A striking aspect of the map is the sinusoidal projection employed by Sanson, that essentially places the globe on an elliptical graticule, creating a very pleasing aesthetic. The composition is finished by an extremely elegant Baroque title cartouche, featuring swags of fruit and vegetation. Nicholas Sanson was born in the town of Abbeville in Picardy. Something of a child prodigy, by the age of eighteen, he could already be found in Paris drafting his own maps. There he quickly rose to become Royal Geographer to Louis XIII in 1630. He maintained the position upon the ascension of the "Sun King" Louis XIV in 1643, and later served as tutor to the ambitious young monarch. In 1644, he formed a lucrative partnership with Paris publisher Pierre Mariette with the objective of producing a great atlas that could rival those of the Amsterdam houses, such as Blaeu and Jansson. The present map was devised as one of the most important maps in the atlas. The first state of the map was printed in 1650, and the present second state appeared a year later. The atlas itself, entitled Les Cartes Générales de toutes les parties du Monde was not finally assembled until 1658. It was however, a landmark moment in the history of French cartography, being the first folio atlas produced in that country. The extremely high quality of Sanson's work motivated other French mapmakers to improve the standard of their production. Sanson also greatly influenced Louis XIV's chief minister, Jean-Baptisite Colbert to heavily fund cartographic projects. This gave rise to a great French School of cartography that was to eventually wrest dominance of the mapmaking market from the Dutch by the 1680s. After Sanson's death in 1667, his work was continued by his sons, Guillaume (d.1703) and Adrian (d.1708). The first state of this map is extremely rare, with Burden citing but two copies in private American collections. This second state is also quite rare, and can be recognized by addition of a coastline north west of California, but with Lake Ontario unshaded and with the appearance of a river system. "With his 1650 Map of North America, Sanson had introduced a great deal of information concerning the nomenclature of American Indians, with words such as Apache and Navajo appearing on printed maps for the first time. He was also the first cartographer to show Santa Fe as the capital of New Mexico ... an extraordinary document of the cultural and geographical resources known in the centers of learning in Europe" (Martin & Martin).

        The Faithful Councellor: Or the Marrow of the Law in English...

      1651. "The Marrow of the Law" Sheppard, William [d. 1675]. The Faithful Councellor: Or the Marrow of the Law in English. In Two Parts. The First, Methodically and Plainly Shewing, How Any Action May be Warrantably Laid in the Common Law, For Relief in Most Causes of Wrongs Done; In Which is Handled Many of the Special and Most Useful Heads of the Law Now in Practice. The Second, By Way of Appendix, In What Cases, And for What Injuries Relief is to be Had in the High Court of Chancery; Wherein is Set Forth Very Much of the Learning Touching the Jurisdiction and Method of Proceedings in That Court. With an Exact Alphabetical Table of the Most Material Things Contained in Each Chapter. Published by Authority. London: Printed by R[obert]. W[hite] for E. Dod, N. Ekins, T. Brewster, and G. Moule, 1651. Part I Only. [vi], 164, 177-368, 553-703, [13] pp. Quarto (7-1/4" x 5-1/2"). Contemporary sheep, blind rules to boards and spine. Light rubbing to extremities, a few shallow scuffs to boards, joints just starting at ends, corners bumped and lightly worn, front pastedown loose, rear endleaves lacking. Moderate toning to text, faint dampstaining to foot of text block, faint dampspotting in a few places, edgewear to preliminaries, a few text leave and a few index leaves. Early owner signatures and a small inkstain to title page, interior otherwise clean. An appealing copy. * First edition. Sheppard's comprehensive account of common and chancery law procedure is important for being written and published in English, rather than Latin or Law French, the language of the courts and the legal profession. Its purpose was political, in the broadest sense, as much as legal, to stabilize the new Commonwealth by making its legal system comprehensible to the common man and amenable to reform, thereby lending legitimacy to the state and to the legal profession. Digested alphabetically by topic, it is also one of the first legal encyclopedias in English. This book was reissued in 1653. A second part was published in 1654.

Wenig ist über sein Leben bekannt, doch wissen wir, daß er von kurz nach 1640 bis um 1644 in Schweden und Norwegen reiste, wo er ausgiebig nach der Natur zeichnete. Die dort gewonnenen Landschaftsmotive verwandte er nach seiner Rückkehr in vielen seiner Arbeiten. Er war hauptsächlich als Zeichner und Radierer tätig. Ölgemälde finden sich in seinem Werk nicht viele. Seestücke sind in seinem Werk seltener und stammen aus seiner frühen Schaffenszeit.

        Pro populo Anglicano defensio, contra Claudii anonymi, alias Salmasii, Defensionem regiam. London [= Utrecht], Dv Gardianis [= D. van Ackersdijck and G. van Zijll], 1650 [=1651].

      - Full contemporary vellum. 12°: paginated: [20], 1-244. With a woodcut on the title, with an armorial device. After his study in Paris and Heidelberg the bright scholar Claudius Salmasius (1588-1653) could choose between several offers of universities. In 1631 he became professor at the University of Leiden, where he stayed the remainder of his life. In 1649 he anonymously published his Defensio Regia pro Carolo I (&#145;Defense of the Reign of Charles I&#146;), probably paid by Charles II, in which he defends absolute monarchy and condemns the parliamentary government in England. As this attack was thoroughly structured and well written it took John Milton until 1651 to be able to present his Pro populo Anglicano Defensio. The present edition was in fact printed in Utrecht by D. Ackersdijck and G. van Zijll. A-L12. B0148

        The Institutes of the Lawes of England, Digested Into the Method...

      1651. "The Most Learned Civilian of His Time" Cowell, John [1554-1611]. The Institutes of the Lawes of England, Digested Into the Method of the Civill or Imperiall Institutions. Useful for all Gentlemen Who are Studious, And Desire to Understand the Customes of this Nation. Written in Latine by John Cowel, Doctor of the Civill Law, And Regius Professor in the University of Cambridge. And Translated into English, According to Act of Parliament, For the Benefit of All. By W.G. Esquire. London: Printed by Tho. Roycroft for Jo: Ridley, 1651. [x], 283, [1] pp. Octavo (6" x 3-3/4"). Contemporary speckled calf, gilt fillets to boards and spine. Moderate rubbing to extremties, corners bumped, chipping to spine ends, joints partially cracked, light toning to text. Later owner signature (of Henry Bromley, 1693) to front free endpaper, interior otherwise clean. $1,500. * First edition in English. As Walker notes, Cowell was considered to be "the most learned civilian of his time." Regius Professor of Civil Law at Cambridge from 1594 to 1611, he is remembered today as the author of an important (and controversial) dictionary, The Interpreter (1607), which went through several subsequent editions. His Institutes was originally published in 1605 in Latin as Institutiones Juris Anglicani ad Methodum Institutionum Justiniani. As indicated by the title it is an elementary textbook on English law organized in the manner of Justinian's Institutes. As Holdsworth notes, "The objects of [this book] were to promote the union of England and Scotland by pointing out the resemblances between the common law and the civil law; to give the student of the common law some knowledge of the general principles of law; and to show the students of the civil law that if they would study the common law, they would improve their knowledge of both laws, and cease to be regarded as mere children in legal knowledge. That these ideas were sound is fairly obvious [today]... but they were in advance of their time." The translation of this book was ordered by Parliament, which indicates its stature during the Commonwealth period, a stature that was not affected by Cowell's Royalist leaning.

      Deventer, Johannes Colomp 1651 - (engraved titlepage) 248 p. Contemporary cardboard Binding, 12° (spine is worn, Rare fourth edition of the translation into Latin of Erasmus Alberus' Der Barfusser Monche Eulenspiegel und Alkoran, a prose satire to which Martin Luther wrote the postscript. The first edition of the German original appeared in Wittenberg by Hans Luft in 1542, followed by the Latin translation in Frankfurt a year later. The second and third Latin edition were published resp. in 1560 and 1578. This parodic adaptation of the Liber conformitatum of the Franciscan Bartolommeo Rinonico (or Albizzi) of Pisa is written by Erasmus Alberus (ca. 1500-1553), a German humanist, reformer, and poet, who was born in the village of Bruchenbrücken, near Frankfurt am Main. Although his father was a schoolmaster, his early education was neglected. Ultimately in 1518 he found his way to the University of Wittenberg, where he studied theology. He had the good fortune to attract the attention of Martin Luther and Philipp Melanchthon, and subsequently became one of Luther's most active helpers. Not only did he fight for the Protestant cause as a preacher and theologian, but he was almost the only member of Luther's party who was able to confront the Roman Catholics with the weapon of literary satire. After Luther's death, Alberus was for a time a deacon in Wittenberg, he became involved, however, in the political conflicts of the time. In 1552 he was appointed Generalsuperintendent at Neubrandenburg in Mecklenburg, where he died on the 5th of May 1553.) [Attributes: First Edition]

      1651. "The Marrow of the Law" Sheppard, William [d. 1675]. The Faithful Councellor: Or the Marrow of the Law in English. In Two Parts. The First, Methodically and Plainly Shewing, How Any Action May be Warrantably Laid in the Common Law, For Relief in Most Causes of Wrongs Done; In Which is Handled Many of the Special and Most Useful Heads of the Law Now in Practice. The Second, By Way of Appendix, In What Cases, And for What Injuries Relief is to be Had in the High Court of Chancery; Wherein is Set Forth Very Much of the Learning Touching the Jurisdiction and Method of Proceedings in That Court. With an Exact Alphabetical Table of the Most Material Things Contained in Each Chapter. Published by Authority. London: Printed by R[obert]. W[hite] for E. Dod, N. Ekins, T. Brewster, and G. Moule, 1651. Part I Only. [vi], 164, 177-368, 553-703, [13] pp. Quarto (7-1/4" x 5-1/2"). Contemporary sheep, blind rules to boards and spine. Light rubbing to extremities, a few shallow scuffs to boards, joints just starting at ends, corners bumped and lightly worn, front pastedown loose, rear endleaves lacking. Moderate toning to text, faint dampstaining to foot of text block, faint dampspotting in a few places, edgewear to preliminaries, a few text leave and a few index leaves. Early owner signatures and a small inkstain to title page, interior otherwise clean. An appealing copy. * First edition. Sheppard's comprehensive account of common and chancery law procedure is important for being written and published in English, rather than Latin or Law French, the language of the courts and the legal profession. Its purpose was political, in the broadest sense, as much as legal, to stabilize the new Commonwealth by making its legal system comprehensible to the common man and amenable to reform, thereby lending legitimacy to the state and to the legal profession. Digested alphabetically by topic, it is also one of the first legal encyclopedias in English. This book was reissued in 1653. A second part was published in 1654. Matthews, William Sheppard, Cromwell's Law Reformer 97-99. English Short-Title Catalogue R19496..

        Experimenta nova anatomica

      Paris: Sebstian Cramoisy & Gabriel Cramoisy, 1651. Pecquet, Jean (1622-1674). Experimenta nova anatomica, quibus incognitum hactenus chyli receptaculum, & ab eo per thoracem in ramos usque subclavios vasa lactea deteguntur. 4to. [12], 108pp. Text engravings, including full-page engraving on p. 21. Paris: Sebastian Cramoisy and Gabriel Cramoisy, 1651. 222 x 170 mm. (uncut). Limp boards ca. 1651, title in ink on spine, minor worm traces inside both covers, light wear and soiling, minor repairs to spine. Portion of front free endpaper torn away, evidence of stamp removal from lower margin of final leaf, minor foxing and toning, but a very good uncut copy. First Edition. In his experiments with live dogs Pecquet discovered the thoracic duct and chyle reservoir (receptaculum chylii), which had been sought after since Aselli?s discovery of the chyliferous vessels (lacteals) in dogs in 1627. Pecquet correctly described the termination of the chyliferous vessels (Aselli's ?lacteal veins?) in the chyle reservoir, refuting the erroneous notion that the vessels ended in the liver; he also described the junction of the thoracic duct at the union of the jugular and subclavical veins. Pecquet?s discovery clarified for the first time the process of absorption in digestion. Garrison-Morton.com 1094. Norman 1676. Norman, One Hundred Books Famous in Medicine, 28A.
