BACON, Francis
1651 ENGLISH ed Francis Bacon Sylva Sylvarum Atlantis Natural History Philosophy Some books should be tasted, some devoured, but only a few should be chewed and digested thoroughly. Francis Bacon A rare collection of important works of Francis Bacon bound together as one! Francis Bacon, one of the most famous English philosophers and scientists of the Renaissance. While most of his work deals with discovery, scientific method, and the scientific revolution, he did lean strongly toward Puritanism in his personal devotion. This book Sylva Sylvarum with Novus Atlas is a famous set of philosophical treatises covering topics such as medical treatments for prolonged life and preservation of youth by using opium! Bacon wrote this book as a collection of miscellaneous topics others include ancient wisdom and secrets. Other works in this volume include New Atlantis and Natural History which helped lay the foundation for many philosophical methodologies that would be important through the 18th- and 19th-centuries. This 1651 edition features an illustrated title page and separate pagination for each of the three named works. Item number: #5339 Price: $950 BACON, Francis Sylva sylvarum, or, A naturall history : in ten centuries : whereunto is newly added the History naturall and experimentall of life and death, or of the prolongation of life London : Printed by J.F. for William Lee, 1651.

Francis Ld Bacon, Viscount St Alban
London: T Newcomb for George Latham, 1651. The first edition of this scarce work. Very rare, not seen at auction since 1977. Collated, complete. (ESTC R17340) This work begins with the titular work. Here Bacon writes a short essay with his opinons on Queen Elizabeth. He is greatly in favour of the deceased Queen in this work and speaks of her in a positive light. He examines the religion, foreign policy and paints a general picture of her reign. Interestingly, it was not until James I's reign that Bacon was knighted and it is believed that Elizabeth did not care much for Bacon in court. The rumour that she referred to him as 'the young Lord'Keeper' is just that. This work also speaks much about Elizabeth's father, Henry VIII. Following the titular work are the six following writings. 'With The Apology of Sr Francis Bacon in Certain Imputations concerning the Late Earl of Essex, written to the Right Honorable his very good Lord, the Earl of Devonshire.' 'The Lord Bacon his Leter to the most Illustrious and Most Excellent Prince Charles, Prince of Wales.' 'The Lord Treasurer Burleigh's advice to Queen Elizabeth in matters of religion and state.' Following Burleigh's advice is a poem which, although not stated to this work, is by Sir Henry Wotton. To this work the poem has been titled 'To The Ld Bacon then Falling from Favour.' The Ancient Poetical Tracts of the Sixteenth Century by John Heneage Jesse, and several other sources, state that this poem was actually written by Wotton in reference to the fall of the Earle of Somerset following the murder of Sir Thomas Overbury.

PECQUET, Jean.
Second edition, in the same year as the first. The discovery of the thoracic duct. "In his experiments with live dogs Pecquet discovered the thoracic duct and cisterna chylii, which he named the receptaculum chylii. He correctly described the termination of the chyliferous vessels (Aselli's 'lacteal veins') in the cisterna, confuting 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 subclavial veins. In a rare early instance of nearly simultaneous triple independent discovery, the thoracic duct was also discovered independently by the Swedish physician Olof Rudbeck and by Thomas Bartholin" (Norman Catalogue 1676). The volume also contains Pecquet's dissertation on the circulation of the blood, and letters to Pecquet from Auzout and Mersenne.See G&M 1095 and Grolier One Hundred (Medicine) 28A (the Paris edition). The first edition is properly described as a very rare book, but this second edition is probably even rarer. The editions of 1654 and 1661 are more usually seen.

ARNOBIUS, Rhetor
1651 1ed Arnobius of Sicca Adversus Gentes Diocletian PAGANISM Idol Worship ROME Arnobius of Sicca was a 4th-century early Christian church father who was mentioned by name in Saint Jerome as a Numidian rhetorician and dream interpreter. In fact, Jerome notes that Arnobius’s Christian conversion was due to a dream. However, Arnobius is known to have only written one work – a work dismissing dreams and paganism – ‘Adversus Gentes’. Translated as ‘Against the Pagans’, this apologetic work was divided into seven distinct books and was a direct response to Diocletian’s persecution of Christians. Roman Emperor Diocletian was justifying his torture and persecution of Christians; thus, Arnobius felt it necessary to defend the monotheistic views of Christianity and condemn the idol worship in temples in the Roman Empire. Other curious inclusions in this work extend to the philosophical. This work also features the first known studies of what would eventually become known as Pascal’s Wager and the argument over the existence of God. Much of the influence of these books come from the philosophy of Lucretius and Plato, rather than the Bible. This 1651 first Lyon edition features the commentary and notes of Theodore Canter, Godescalc Stewech, Gebhard Elmenhorst, and most notably Antonius Thysius.

1651. The first edition of this scarce work. Very rare, not seen at auction since 1977. Collated, complete. (ESTC R17340) This work begins with the titular work. Here Bacon writes a short essay with his opinons on Queen Elizabeth. He is greatly in favour of the deceased Queen in this work and speaks of her in a positive light. He examines the religion, foreign policy and paints a general picture of her reign. Interestingly, it was not until James I's reign that Bacon was knighted and it is believed that Elizabeth did not care much for Bacon in court. The rumour that she referred to him as 'the young Lord'Keeper' is just that. This work also speaks much about Elizabeth's father, Henry VIII. Following the titular work are the six following writings. 'With The Apology of Sr Francis Bacon in Certain Imputations concerning the Late Earl of Essex, written to the Right Honorable his very good Lord, the Earl of Devonshire.' 'The Lord Bacon his Leter to the most Illustrious and Most Excellent Prince Charles, Prince of Wales.' 'The Lord Treasurer Burleigh's advice to Queen Elizabeth in matters of religion and state.' Following Burleigh's advice is a poem which, although not stated to this work, is by Sir Henry Wotton. To this work the poem has been titled 'To The Ld Bacon then Falling from Favour.'

GAY, John.
ESTC T13818 & T13828; Lewis, The English fable: Aesop and literary culture, 1651-1740, p. 149; New Cambridge bibliography of English literature II, col. 498. Attractively bound first editions of the two series of fables written by the celebrated English poet and dramatist John Gay (1685-1732). Gay became famous with the present publication of Fables and the opera The beggar's opera. Gay wrote his fables for Prince William, Duke of Cumberland (1721-1765), to whom the first series is dedicated. The dedication is followed by a list of contents, an introduction in the form of a fable, and the 50 fables, all with an engraved illustration. Gay started to write a second series of fables in 1731, a year before his death. The 16 finished fables were posthumously published 7 years later, in 1638. The illustrations, much larger than those of the first series, were engraved after designs by the well-known French engraver and illustrator Hubert-François Gravelot (1699-1773).Marbled endpaper in first volume detached. Browned, otherwise in very good condition. [Attributes: First Edition]

Es "zeichnet sich durch die Kühnheit aus, mit der den überkommenen Anschauungen vom Zusammenhang der Musik mit der Mathematik Kampf angesagt wird und selbst die Schriften so namhafter Autoren wie Euler, Tartini, Rameau und d'Alembert angegriffen werden. Der grundlegende Unterschied zwischen der Fundamentalgesetzlichkeit der Mathematik und den musikalischen Regeln, die lediglich Beobachtungsergebnisse sind, wird aufgezeigt. Es genügt, dass der Komp. seinem natürlichen Instinkt folgt; Regeln sind zum Komponieren unnötig. Damit hat Eximeno der Musikanschauung derdeutschen Frühromantik (Herder, Heinse, Wackenroder) vorgearbeitet, wohl ohne von ihr etwas zu wissen." (MGG).- "Obra de gran éxito y estimada. . .

NUYSEMENT (Clovis Hesteau, Sieur de).
Cassellis, typis Jacobi Gentschii, impensis Sebaldi Koehlers, 1651. in-12. 8ff. 212pp. 1f. Demi-veau moderne dans le style de l'époque, dos à nerfs orné. Première Edition Latine, très rare, de cet important ouvrage initialement paru en français en 1621. Il s'agit de la principale œuvre alchimique du poète hermétiste Clovis Hesteau, Sieur de Nuysement (1555-1623), qui s'était pris de passion pour l'alchimie vers la fin de sa vie. Cette traduction imprimée à Cassel fut donnée par Louis Combach (1590-1657), qui avait déjà publié en 1649, dans la même ville, les œuvres du célèbre alchimiste anglais George Ripley (1450-1490). Elle manque à de nombreuses bibliographies spécialisées comme Caillet, Dorbon ou Ferguson, qui n'en possédait qu'une réimpression. A noter que ce dernier attribuait par erreur l'ouvrage à un Jacques de Nuysement, qu'il différenciait à tort de Clovis Hesteau de Nuysement. Traces d'inscriptions sur le titre et dans les marges de quelques feuillets. Petit manque dans le blanc de la page de titre, qui est doublée. Papier fortement bruni.

Graswinckel, Dirck.
Leiden, Elsevier, 1651. Folio (295 x 312 mm). (12), 203, (1), 175, (1) pp. Contemporary half vellum over marbled boards. First and only printing. A treatise on the economy of the grain trade, one of the principal economic works of the 17th century. According to Van Rees, it contains "many pages whose content would have done honour to the writings of Turgot or Adam Smith". The first part collects all regulations concerning the grain trade in the Netherlands from 1501 to 1634. It is printed in double columns, with the text of the regulations and Graswinckel's Latin translation. The second part contains Graswinckel's commentary on the grain trade, with marginal notes in Latin. Graswinckel (1600-66) regarded agriculture as the country's principal source of wealth. He advocated free grain trade and high prices for agricultural products, wishing export restrictions to be kept to a minimum. He also fought other obstacles to free trade, such as prohibitions on buying future harvest (pre-purchase) and on sales without immediate delivery. Also, he proved shrewdly to have understood the causes of the 17th century grain price increase, which he linked to the influx of gold and silver from the West Indies. Schumpeter notes that while Graswinckel's insights were not new in 1651, he had a better understanding of the underlying price mechanisms, and that many would place him (with his contemporary Pieter de la Court) above his English contemporaries on the basis of his liberal views on domestic and foreign trade, finding that both writers should occupy a prominent position in a history of … [Click Below for Full Description]

HELWIG, Christoph
1651. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Christoph Helwig was an early 17th-century German chronologist known for his landmark work 'Theatrum Historicum'. This work, first published in 1609, is an entire chronology of the history of the world beginning with Creation and the lineage of Adam. Short biographical notes and included throughout each 'chart-like' page. Helwig covers church history, use of astrology in pagan and religious circles, Greek, Roman, and Jewish histories, rise and fall of Turkish and Ottoman powers, importance of the Papacy, all with an extensive index through the mid-1600s. Thousands of names are included in this work most of which are featured in the year-by-year chart. An impressive and highly desirable work! [Attributes: First Edition]

Francis Ld Bacon, Viscount St Alban
London: T Newcomb for George Latham, 1651. The first edition of this scarce work. Very rare, not seen at auction since 1977. Collated, complete. (ESTC R17340) This work begins with the titular work. Here Bacon writes a short essay with his opinons on Queen Elizabeth. He is greatly in favour of the deceased Queen in this work and speaks of her in a positive light. He examines the religion, foreign policy and paints a general picture of her reign. Interestingly, it was not until James I's reign that Bacon was knighted and it is believed that Elizabeth did not care much for Bacon in court. The rumour that she referred to him as 'the young Lord'Keeper' is just that. This work also speaks much about Elizabeth's father, Henry VIII. Following the titular work are the six following writings. 'With The Apology of Sr Francis Bacon in Certain Imputations concerning the Late Earl of Essex, written to the Right Honorable his very good Lord, the Earl of Devonshire.' 'The Lord Bacon his Leter to the most Illustrious and Most Excellent Prince Charles, Prince of Wales.' 'The Lord Treasurer Burleigh's advice to Queen Elizabeth in matters of religion and state.' Following Burleigh's advice is a poem which, although not stated to this work, is by Sir Henry Wotton. To this work the poem has been titled 'To The Ld Bacon then Falling from Favour.' The Ancient Poetical Tracts of the Sixteenth Century by John Heneage Jesse, and several other sources, state that this poem was actually written by Wotton in reference to the fall of the Earle of Somerset following the murder of Sir Thomas Overbury.

CLUVER, Philipp
1651. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Philipp Clüver was a 16th-century German geographer known for his modernistic views on history and geography. He composed many works on various historical eras including Roman times, antiquities of Sicily, Sardinia, and Corsica, and described his findings on his voyages to Britain, Hungary, and Poland. However, his most prized work was 'Introduction in Universal Geography' in which he discusses important aspects of navigation and geography. According to Fuson, 'Introductionis in Universam Geographiam' is "the first comprehensive modern geography" and would become the standard in geographical textbooks. This 1651 Elzevier edition features folding charts and plates on distance measures, climate zones, oceans, winds, and zodiac and star charts. Edition includes illustrated title page, typical of Elzevier printings. [Attributes: First Edition]
