EUCLIDE RICCI, Giovanni
presso Gio. Batt. Ferroni, 1651. In -8°, pp. (4), 227, (1). P. pergamena con titolo Ms al dorso. Numerosissime illustrazioni nel testo, testatine, capilettera e finalini. Il libro è conforme, come data, luogo, titolo, dimensioni ecc. all'edizione di Longhi descritta anche in Riccardi 1, 369 e Haym, p. 520. Ma la composizione è differente, se pure simile: sono ricalcate una sull'altra ma non coincidono. The book is much like, as year, place, dimentions etc. to the Longhi's edition reported in Riccardi (1, 369) and Haym (p. 520). But the composition is different, even if similar.

Markham, Gervase.
1651. 4to. (14), 591, (23) pp, final blank. With additional engr. title page (frontispiece), 4 full-page text woodcuts (2 folding) and several smaller woodcuts in the text, as well as 1 folding woodcut plate, latterly backed with cloth. Sumptuous mid-19th-century three quarter morocco binding with gilt spine. Extremely rare and early edition of this great English hippiatric manual, first published in 1615, by one of the earliest western owners of and dealers in Arabian horses.

Gervase (Gervais, Jarvis) Markham, as well as his father Robert, a Nottinghamshire MP and Sheriff, was the owner of valuable horses, and "is said to have imported the first Arab. In a list of Sir Henry Sidney's horses in 1589 'Pied Markham' is entered as having been sold to the French ambassador [and it, or a horse of the same name, may have been given to Markham by Sir Francis Walsingham], and Gervase sold an Arabian horse to James I for £500" (DNB). - Variously browned; occasional corner faults (no loss to text). From the library of Sir Robert Throckmorton, Bt. (1800-62), member of an eminent Anglo-Catholic noble family who sat in the House of Commons from 1831 to 1835 (his bookplate on front pastedown; a later bookplate is opposite on the flyleaf). Wing M659. Poynter 20.7. Wellcome IV, 56 (incomplete). Cf. Mennessier de la Lance II, 156. Huth p. 17 (other editions).

Contemporary limp vellum with remains of ties. First edition. - "Cette biographie est un des livres classiques de la langue portugaise" (Brunet). Includes an account of the battles at Ormuz between the Turks and the Arabs. Dom João de Castro (1500-48) was a naval officer and later Viceroy of Portuguese India. In 1538 he embarked on his first voyage to India, arriving at Goa and immediately proceeding to the defense of Diu. Castro was responsible for the overthrow of Mahmud, King of Gujarat whose interests threatened Portuguese control of the Goan coast. His voyages frequently took him to the coasts of Arabia, and his present biography contains many details about the Peninsula, especially about Aden and the sea route to Mecca. Castro died in Goa in 1548 and was initially buried there, but his remains were later exhumed and transferred to Portugal. - Contemporary ink ownership to printed title.

Gellio Aulo
apud Ioannem Ianssonium, 1651. In-12° (130x72mm), pp. (48), 498, (122), legatura antica p. pelle con doppio filetto ai piatti. Dorso a falsi nervi con filetti e fiorellini in oro entro scomparti e tracce di titolo anticamente calligrafato. Antiporta calcografica con Aulo Gellio raffigurato al proprio scrittoio. Ampi indici preliminari e finali, seguiti da una "Interpretatio Graecarum Dictionum" e da un indice dei lemmi greci ricorrenti nell'opera. Una firma ottocentesca. Restauri alla legatura. Discreto esemplare. Seicentina olandese delle "Notti Attiche" di Aulo Gellio (130-175 d.C.). L'opera, in venti libri, è una compilazione a carattere enciclopedico di estremo interesse storico, linguistico e letterario, epitome delle letture e ricerche dell'autore, delle quali è intenzionalmente mantenuto l'ordine del tutto casuale. Il libro, steso nelle sere invernali in una villa che Gellio possedeva nell'Attica (da cui il titolo) è importante anche per i numerosi frammenti letterari di età arcaica (diverse centinaia di citazioni latine e greche), che proprio grazie ad esso ci sono stati conservati. Gli argomenti trattati (grammaticali, filosofici, letterari, storici, giuridici, religiosi, etc.) ne fanno un'inesauribile miniera di informazioni. Brunet, II, 1523. Graesse, III, 46.

CARTWRIGHT, Christopher
Printed for W. Lee.and R. Royston, London 1651 - [14], 366, 84pp. With an engraved frontispiece. With an additional title-page, dated 1652, bound-in. Late nineteenth-century half-calf, marbled boards, ruled and lettered in gilt. Extremities rubbed. Armorial bookplate of 'Richard Harington' to FEP, ink ownership inscription and annotations to FFEP, very small holes to title-page - just clipping text, slight marginal loss to Oo, paper flaws to text of p.300-301 - without loss of sense, some spotting. A reprinting of, and reply to, Catholic controversialist Thomas Bayly's (d. c.1657) Certamen Religiosum (1649) by Church of England clergyman Christopher Cartwright (bap. 1602, d. 1658). Bayly had related the proceedings of a meeting between Charles I and Henry Somerset, earl of Worcester in 1646, at which the latter attempt to convert the former to the Roman Catholicism - the monarch remained true to his protestant faith. Though Bayly's intent had been to provide propaganda disproving notions that Charles harboured papist sympathies, the account was widely disputed with many claiming it to be falsified. Cartwright here accuses Bayly of providing the Catholic Church with a spurious report that may be used in its favour, an issue he attempts to rectify through enforcing the role of the king as a defender of the Protestant cause.

PECQUET, Jean.
Parisiis: Apud Sebastianum Cramoisy...et Gabrielem Cramoisy, 1651. FIRST EDITION of Pecquet's famous work in which he records his discovery of the chyle reservoir. "In his experiments with live dogs Pecquet discovered the thoracic duct and cisterna chylii. He correctly described the termination of the chyliferous vessels (Aselli's 'lacteal veins') in the cisterna, 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 subclavial veins. In a rare early instance of nearly simultaneous triple independent discovery, the thoracic duct was also discovered independently by Thomas Bartholin (1652; see G&M 1096) and by the Swedish physician Olof Rudbeck (1653; see G&M 1098)" (Norman). In Paris Harvey's theories of the circulation of the blood had been rejected at the university, and in this book Pecquet, who worked with a small group of Harveyites at the Jardin du Roi, included a dissertation on the circulation, which ensured its acceptance there.

Dabei handelt es sich um die "Recréations mathématicques" des Jesuiten Jean Leurechon, die auch in anderen Ländern übersetzt und adaptiert bzw. imitiert wurden. Der Schriftsteller Caspar Ens (1570-1656) war offenbar besonders an abseitigen Themen interessiert und übersetzte mehrere Werke aus dem Französischen, unter anderem auch den "Guzman de Alfarache" ins Lateinische. - Die Holzschnitte zeigen verschiedene Kunststücke, auf Seite 146 auch eine Szene auf einem Billardtisch. - Papierbedingt wenig gebräunt, zu Beginn eine kleinee Wurmspur ohne Textverlust, nur die letzten Blätter etwas beschabt und feuchtrandig, sonst meust sauber.

HOBBES, Thomas.
London Printed for Andrew Crooke at the Green Dragon in St. Pauls Church-yard. First edition, first issue (with boar's head device to title-page). Folio (28.75 x 19.5 cm), [6], 248, 247-256, 261-396 pp., additional engraved title-page, folding table, complete, text continuous despite pagination, modern calf antique, gilt arabesque to upper cover, a fine example with wide margins. A classic work on statecraft and a landmark of western philosophy. Written during the English Civil War (1642–1651), Leviathan argues for a social contract and rule by an absolute sovereign. Hobbes wrote that civil war and the brute situation of a state of nature ("the war of all against all") could only be avoided by strong undivided government. Hobbes begins his treatise on politics with an account of human nature. He presents an image of man as matter in motion, attempting to show through example how everything about humanity can be explained materialistically, that is, without recourse to an incorporeal, immaterial soul or a faculty for understanding ideas that are external to the human mind. Hobbes describes human psychology without any reference to the summum bonum, or greatest good, as previous thought had done. Not only is the concept of a summum bonum superfluous, but given the variability of human desires, there could be no such thing. Consequently, any political community that sought to provide the greatest good to its members would find itself driven by competing conceptions of that good with no way to decide among them. The result would be civil war. There is, however, Hobbes states, a … [Click Below for Full Description]
