HOBBES, Thomas
London: for Andrew Crooke, at the Green Dragon in St. Paul's Church-yard,, 1651. Small folio (281 × 180 mm). Contemporary calf, rebacked, spine ruled gilt in compartments, raised bands, red morocco label, preserved in a half calf and marbled paper custom made drop-back box. Ornament of winged head on title page, with engraved title-page and folding printed table.

Errata corrected in a contemporary hand, with some marginalia. Paper lightly toned, some spotting and the odd marginal paper flaw. Withal a very good copy. True first edition of one of the foundation works in the field of political theory, with the winged head ornament on the title-leaf. There are three editions with title-pages bearing 1651 imprints. The second, with a bear ornament, was printed outside England (probably at Amsterdam), and the third, with a triangular type ornament, is generally considered to date from c.1680. Leviathan details Hobbes's notion of the origin of the State as a product of human reason meeting human need, through to its destruction as a consequence of human passions. According to Hobbes, the State, as an aggregate of individual men (so well portrayed in the famous engraved title), should always be tendered the obedience of the individual, as any government, in his view, is better than the natural anarchic state. Needless to say, this view elicited a storm of controversy, putting Hobbes at odds with proponents of individual liber … [Click Below for Full Description]

Boschini, Marco
Greece: Venice "Marco Boschini Venetiano, al Serinissima Principe E Regal Collegio di Venetia" 1651. Black & white copper engraved plan of the Siege of Iraklion, from Marco Boschini's "Il tutti di Regno di Candia"large, folded; verso blank. The plan shows the battle for Iraklion between the Venetians and the Turks, who laid siege to the city from 1648, having taken the rest of the island; it shows the Turkish fleet attacking the city, whilst land forces are encamped around the city attacking from all sides. The attack by the Turks was instigated in 1644, when the Knights of Malta attacked an Ottoman convoy on its way from Alexandria to Constantinople. They landed at Candia with the loot, which included part of the Sultan's harem, returning from a pilgrimage to Mecca. In response, 60,000 Ottoman troops led by Yussuf Pasha disembarked on Venetian Crete and occupied La Canea (modern Chania) and Rettimo (modern Rethimno). Both of these cities took two months each to conquer. Between 1645 and 1648, the Ottomans occupied the rest of the island and prepared to take the capital, Candia. The siege of Candia began in May 1648. The Ottomans spent three months laying siege to the city, cutting off the water supply, and disrupting Venice's sea lanes to the city. For the next 16 years, they would bombard the city to little effect. Dark impression, on laid paper.

He was the leader of the Byzantine Renaissance, and left works of immense value. The most important is the 'Bibliotheka', a critical bibliography of 280 works with his comments. Gibbon said that it was a living monument of erudition and acute criticism. This work is often the best and only source of notable works now lost. Photius also compiled a 'Lexikon', a glossary drawing upon earlier lexicographic works. The 'Mystagogia' is a theological work treating the Trinity. The 'Amphilochia' or 'Quaestiones ad Amphilochium', concerns ca. 300 catechetical question-and-answer discussions of religion and philosophy. § The surviving letters of Photius, 298 or 299, were writte … [Click Below for Full Description]

BERNINI, Gio. Lorenzo (Napoli 1598 - Roma 1680)
BERNINI, Gio. Lorenzo (Napoli 1598 - Roma 1680). Lettera autografa firmata dat. 20 ottobre 1651 indirizzata al Duca di Modena (con sigillo in ceralacca). Il Bernini fu celebre architetto (dal 1629 di San Pietro a Roma), scultore e pittore con speciale talento per opere monumentali; nel 1663 lavorò a Parigi. Ne scrissero Baldinucci (1681 per incarico di Cristian di Svezia) e Stanislao Fraschetti di Roma (1899). Le sue opere rappresentano il barocco nella sua fusione di masse armoniche, ricche di calore e di movimento. Della sua attività di architetto, è famoso il Baldacchino di San Pietro e, per la su ampiezza luminosa, il colonnato di San Pietro, che raccoglie l' insigne prospetto e la Cupola del Tempio. La presente lettera è in - 4° (mm. 305 x 203), scritta con bella calligrafia; l' Artista afferma che è molto difficile creare una scultura simile ad una pittura (forse un ritratto). Tuttavia, in seguito al desiderio del Cardinale fratello del Duca, decide di effettuarla, ma chiede scusa se l' opera non sarà perfetta. Rarissimo, interessante autografo perfettamente conservato.

Bella edizione del 1651 dell'Opera di Daniel Sennert (1572-1637) rinomato fisico tedesco e prolifico scrittore accademico nell'ambito dell'alchimia e chimica, noto per aver sviluppato una prima versione della teoria atomica. Abile medico, Sennert credeva nella stregoneria, nella trasmutazione, nell'applicazione dell'astrologia alla medicina e nelle origini sovrannaturali della malattia. Fu il primo ad introdurre la chimica come materia del curriculum medico e a coniugare in maniera armonica le dottrine della medicina galenica con ciò che considerava vero nelle dottrine di Paracelso. L'opera era composta da tre tomi, siamo purtroppo in possesso solo del primo contenente volume contenente, "Institutionum Medicinae Libri V", "Liber Chymicorum" con frontespizio a sè stante, "Epitome naturalis scientiae", "Hypomnemata physica". Purtroppo il fascicolo iniziale di 4 carte e4 contenente "Methodus discendi Medicinam" ed "Exoterica" risulta mancante.

Alberus, Erasmus
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.).

Ian (aka John orJean) of St. Samson ( in 1571 - 1636 ) a great man of the Carmelite religion who had a great influence on the Carmelite reform in the Carmelite convent of Rennes also called Reform of Touraine. The Order of the Brothers of Our Lady of Mount Carmel or Carmelites is a Catholic religious order thought to have been founded in the 12th century on Mount Carmel. In the early 17th Century the struggles and concerns over the advent of Protestantism instituted an iminant need for reform. The place that offered the best conditions was the Province of Tourraine, which gave its name to the reform. One of its great figures was John of St. Samson, who was the principal collaborator accompanied and cared for those who were sick or dying from plague and earning a reputation as a miricle worker. This book is written several hundred years before those following the reform of Tourraine and the Carmelite's under the Mantuan Congregation, who mainly functioned in a small corner of Italy, were formally merged under one set of Constitutions at the end of the 19th century.

La publicación de su obra poética la comenzó en 1619 con el libro "Varias poesías", un total de 19 poemas de su época de juventud en los que predomina la égloga pastoril. En 1648 apareció su "Poema heroico de la invención de la Cruz", muy admirado por Cervantes, y que le dió gran fama hasta el siglo XIX. En el libro "Obras varias", publicado en Alcalá en 1651, reeditó de nuevo los poemas de juventud y añadió 260 poesías (silvas, églogas, rimas y romances amorosos) y la tragedia senequista "Hércules Furente y Oeta". En ellos aflora, junto a la más pura vena poética de estilo barroco, el desgarro existencial del hombre postrado por la enfermedad que le estaba paralizando.

[DYMOCK, Cressy.]
London: by I. C. Richard Woodnoth,, 1651. Whereby may be dispatched any work now done in England or elsewhere, (especially Works that require strength and swiftness) either by Wind, Water, Cattel or men. And that with better accomodation, and more profit then by any thing hitherto known and used. Octavo (182 × 130 mm). Early twentieth-century tan half calf, marbled sides and endpapers, titles to spine gilt. Binding a little rubbed and marked, contents lightly toned at the margins and with a some light spotting. Excellent condition. First edition of this important work on early agrarian reform, introducing a new engine system for powering mills. The two letters that comprise this volume are attributed to the innovator Cressy Dymock and addressed to the reformer Samuel Hartlib. The two men met in 1648 and Dymock "became one of Hartlib's most loyal admirers, promoting machines for setting corn and grinding, rabbit-farming schemes, and intensive husbandry, mostly known only through Hartlib's papers. He appreciated the weaknesses of contemporary agrarian production and tackled them with mechanical and other innovations" (ODNB).

Very sympathetically bound in recent calf antique, covers decorated with "cat's paw" motif, double gilt fillets around sides, five raised bands on spine, compartments richly gilt, red morocco label in the second. First Edition of the foremost English contribution to Embryology and Reproduction, "the background to the whole of Harvey's work, the source which can amplify his views on many subjects, particularly on topics not fully explained in 'De motu cordis,' such as blood, spirit, innate heat, the soul and the heart" (Whitteridge p. xxiv). Our copy belonged to Etienne) Le Moyne and contains numerous MS annotations by him throughout the text. "In 'De generatione,' Harvey's contribution to the future study of embryology was, first, to provide the method which his successors could follow, and this was the method of slow and careful observation many times repeated. His second contribution is his hypothesis that the chick in the egg and the fetus in the uterus both develop alike by epigenesis and in no other way. From this theory of epigene … [Click Below for Full Description]

Original calf with gold decorated spine. Rebacked while maintaining original binding. Red page edges. 2 title pages. The first is printed in red and black and includes Ioannem Berthelin in the imprint with a woodcut engraving of printer's device on same page. 2nd title page in b/w with woodcut armorial device. Bochart was a 17th century French Huguenot biblical scholar whose work was foundational to the founding of the field as a topic of academic inquiry. The "Geographica Sacra" was first published in Caen in 1646. It seeks to explain the origins of civilization in antiquity based on the biblical stories of the flood and Tower of Babel. Bochart attempted to match the 70 nations mentioned in the biblical account with the various ethnic groups of Europe, Africa and Asia. Critical for Bochart was his claim, which he took from Jewish midrashic sources, that Hebrew was the original language and that all other languages came about because of the Tower of Babel. Includes poems of approbation from Claudius Sarravius, one of the leading men of letters in the 17th century, the French Huguenot poet Philippe le Sueur de Petiville, Franciscus Saracenus, Aegid Menagius, Jacobus Bridou, Petrus du Bosc, Jacobus Savary and Johannes le Myere.

TSCHIRNHAUS, Ehrenfried Walter Von
1651. Second editions of the two main works by the early Enlightenment mathematician, scientist and philosopher E.W. von Tschirnhaus (1651-1708), first published in Amsterdam in 1686 and 1687. Bound in is a pedagogical work by him in German that first appeared in Halle in 1700. Tschirnhaus had studied medicine at Leiden, and been introduced to Spinoza and his circle in The Hague nearby. He also met Huygens, Newton and Leibniz, and maintained a life-long correspondence with them. 'Like his mentor Spinoza, his friend Leibniz and his student Wolff, he used logic and observation in the determination of truth, and like them, was opposed by fundamentalists for doing so. His first book, Medicina Corporis, is a treatise on health. He had studied in Holland, the freest place on earth at the time, and it showed. Exposure to tolerant Dutch culture, secular Cartesianism and pantheist Spinozism shaped his positive appraisal of embodiment. The earthy tract was a success; it also appeared in a German version and was reprinted twice. The sequel, his main work, is the Medicina Mentis, which begins with an expression of joy over the order of nature - a joy intensified by considering that the mind can access truth. But, he argues, really to access it, and becoming a real philosopher (realis philosophus), requires an art of discovery (ars invenienda) modelled on mathematics (pp. xii-xiv). It is this art that is the first philosophy' (Dictionary of Eighteenth-Century German Philosophers).
