John French, (circa 1616-1657) was an English physician who also served as an army doctor, "he was a keen advocate of the chemical methods pioneered by Paracelsus and Van Helmont, whose ideas, and those of their followers, he attempted to popularize in the 1650s through original works and translations. From the late 1640s he was also closely associated with the circle of Samuel Hartlib, and was well respected by many, including Robert Boyle, for his expertise in the practical side of chemistry and mineralogy. According to Hartlib, French knew 'all the places for Minerals in England, and hath a great store of all manner of Oares'… In addition, as physician to the Savoy Hospital, he would appear to have encouraged the implementation of various new approaches to medical training and practice, including the use of spa water treatments for maimed soldiers (his 'The Yorkshire Spaw' appeared in 1652), and anatomical dissection."—(Oxford DNB). Wing, F2175; Boyne, The Yorkshire Library, p. 255.

        The Darknes of Atheism Dispelled by the Light of Nature. A Physico-Theologicall Treatise

      London: Printed By J.F. For William Lee, 1652. First Edition. Quarto. [50], 35pp, [1]. Lacking portrait frontispiece, A1. Signature E misbound, but all leaves of text present. Contemporary calf, recornered in modern calf, and rebacked in modern leatherette, gilt. Recent endpapers. FEP with bookplate of David Arthur Pailin, early eighteenth-century ink inscription to blank fly: 'Bought for Willeilmas Whyte.....01L, 00s, 00d', dated 1707, later ink inscription of 'James Brown his book' to further blank-fly. Some soiling and damp-staining to text at front and end, else a crisp copy with the edges apparently trimmed on recent rebacking. The author's first original publication, The Darknes of Atheism proved to be the first and most ambitious of three atomists works by Walter Charleton (1620-1707), English royal Physician-in-ordinary and natural philosopher. Charleton studied at Magdelen Hall, Oxford under John Wilkins, who likely introduced him to natural philosophy. The Darknes of Atheism is one of the earliest English justifications of Christian faith based on natural philosophy, and demonstrates that Charleton was familiar with the recent scientific discoveries and propositions put forward by Descartes, Gassendi (who is referenced in the author's preface, and introduced to an English audience by Charleton in 1654) and Thomas Hobbes.

        Ristretto Delli Moti Moderni d'Inghilterra, Con vn breue Racconto Delle Ragioni del Rè, e del Parlamento. Tradotto dal Latino in Italiano dal Dottor Gio: Batt: Birago Auogadro Cutadin Venetiano.All'Illustriss. & Eccellentiss. Sig. Giovanni Pesaro, Caualier e Procurator di S. Marco

      In Venetia, Presso il Turrini, 1652. 12mo, 139 x 68 mms., pp. 221 [222 - 227 adverts, 228 blank], engraved Turrini vignette of a tower on its summit, with an angel playing a trumpet, out of which comes a scroll with the motto, "Deus et Fortitudo turis sic mea," contained within a frame, on title-page, contemporary vellum; some slight browning of text in first few leaves, with occasional stain, but a very good copy. The "Lettore" preceding the title-page is signed "Teodoro Veridico," the pseudonym that George Bate (1608 - 1668), the apologist for Charles I and later physician to Oliver Cromwell. The work, or at least the first part, appeared in Paris (but printed in London by William Dugard) in 1649 in Latin, Elenchus motuum nuperorum in Anglia. The English version, A Compendious Narrative of the Late Troubles in England, was published in London in 1652. This Italian translation from the Latin original is dedicated to Giovanni Pesaro (1589 - 1658), the 103rd Doge of Venice. The work was also published in Bologna the same year, with a different vignette on the title-page. F. F. Madan, in his "A Bibliography of George Bate's Elenchus Motuum Nuperorum in Anglia" (The Library [1951], no. 9) records the above imprint but not the one for Bologna, which would appear to be the sheets of the Turrini Press, with a cancel title-page. This Italian translation from the Turrini press, seems to be uncommon.

Portada grabada - 7 h. -y 464pp. Muy correcto ejemplar encuadernado de época en pergamino. =Primera edición de 1575, obteniendo un éxito enorme, la obra fue prohibida en 1585, por lo que el autor la enmendó , corrigió y aumentó para sus siguientes ediciones. =Se trata de una obra precursora de tres ciencias: la psicología diferencial, la orientación profesional y la eugenesia. También hace interesantes aportaciones a la neurología, pedagogía, antropología, patología y sociología. En ella se propuso mejorar la sociedad seleccionando la instrucción adecuada a cada persona según las aptitudes físicas e intelectuales derivadas de la constitución física y neurológica específicas de cada una. La obra tuvo problemas mayores con la Inquisición; fue perseguida a causa de sus teorías sobre la concepción y fue prohibida en Portugal (1581) y en España (1583); figura en el Index del año siguiente, si bien circulaban bajo cuerda ediciones clandestinas no autorizadas y en español que venían de Leyden (1591), Amberes (Plantín, 1593 y 1607). La obra influyó en el diseño de los caracteres de algunos personajes de ficción, como los principales de Miguel de Cervantes en su Don Quijote de la Mancha, al que puso el significativo epíteto de ingenioso, y en El licenciado Vidriera.

Da in Osnabrück während und nach den Friedensverhandlungen keine Druckerei extistierte, mußte die beschlossene Neuauflage außer Landes gedruckt werden. Enthält auf Seite 130 einen Texteinschub, der sich auf den Exorzismus bei der Taufe bezieht. Der Kommentar hierzu (Seite 126) stellt die Ausführung in das Ermessen der Prediger, "... inmassen der Herr Doctor Chemnitius (Martin Chemnitz) ... erkläret hat, lassen wirs dabey billich bleiben".

        Le due Aggrippine

      Venetia, Appresso li Guerigli 1652.. kl.-8°. 407 S. Pgmt. d. Zt. Tit am unteren Rand um ca. 1,5 cm. beschnitten. vgl. Hayn-Gotend. IX, 443. - Pallavicino Ferrante, wurde 1615 als Mitglied der alten Adelsfamilie der Pallavicini in Piacenza geboren. Als Verfasser von Satiren und Schmähschriften wurde er 1644 in Avignon von päpstlichen Schergen enthauptet. Unter anderem schmähte er Papst Urban VIII Barberini, jenem Papst der laut Pallavicini Jesus den Bart geschnitten habe (barba). Außerdem schrieb er gegen die Jesuiten, die römische Inquisition, die die Verleger ruinierte, und nicht zuletzt gegen die Spanier, die zu jener Zeit Teile Italiens besetzt hielten. Pallavicino verbrachte sechs Monate im Kerker bevor er entkam. Dennoch setzte er seine Attacken auf den Papst fort. In dieser Zeit verfasste er das anti-jesuitische Werk 'La Retorica delle puttane'. Die 15 Lektionen der alten Hure in seinem Roman beruhten auf jenem Handbuch, daß in Jesuitenschulen in Verwendung war. Das war ein Schritt zu viel gewesen. Abermals musste Pallavicino fliehen. Durch Verrat fiel er den Päpstlichen in Avignon in die Hände. Nach vierzehn Monaten Haft wurde er dort enthauptet.

        THEATRUM CHEMICUM BRITANNICUM. Containing Severall Poeticall Pieces of our Famous English Philosophers, who have Written the Hermetique Mysteries in their Owne Ancient Language. Faithfully Collected into one Volume, with Annotations Thereon. VELLUM EDITION, Limited to 35 Copies Only

      Seattle, Washington: Published by Ouroboros Press, 2011 [actually, 2012]. Limited Edition. Full Vellum. Fine. Stout Octavo, 6 x 9 inches. Full Imperial Vellum, with gilt-stamped spine bands and central ‘grotesque’ ornament to boards, scarlet leather spine label, silk bookmark, hand-marbled endpapers and silk closure ties. 528 pages. Rubricated title page in red and black ink. Illustrated with alchemical engravings, ornamental grotesques, dragons, trees, and fleurons. Includes the 11 x 14 folding plate of George Ripley’s Wheel. A fine copy. The Vellum Bound edition was limited to only 35 copies and was sold out in advance of publication. ¶ The Theatrum Chemicum Britannicum is a major collection of English alchemical texts which encapsulate the arcana of the Magnum Opus in poetic form. Originally gathered from several rare medieval manuscripts by Elias Ashmole, the text represents the largest collection of verse treating of the production of the Philosopher’s Stone to be brought together in one volume. Here we find well known names in the alchemical corpus among whom are included; Thomas Norton, George Ripley, Geoffrey Chaucer, John Daston, Pearce the Black Monke, Richard Carpenter, Abraham Andrews, Thomas Charnock, William Bloomefield, Edward Kelley, John Dee, Thomas Robinson, William Backhouse, John Gower, John Lydgate, W. Redman and several anonymous authors. This who’s who of English alchemists is placed in historical context by a Prolegomena by Ashmole, which supports his thesis that England may be proud of its alchemical literary heritage. In addition Ashmole has provided ample annotations and commentary to each of the texts as supplementary material in the concluding chapter of the book. Originally published in 1652, this new complete edition of the Theatrum Chemicum Britannicum goes beyond the mere reprinting of the original pages as past facsimiles have done. Using the original errata sheets provided by Ashmole, the entire text has been corrected and reset in a more readable typeface and features clear reproductions of the original engravings produced by Robert Vaughan. In addition, this edition features a more complete version of the Breviary of Natrurall Philosophy by Thomas Charnock by employing a complete manuscript of the text not available to Ashmole at the time. The text has a new introduction by William Kiesel and a full bibliography of alchemical and bibliographic materials used in researching the text. A major production.

        The Historie of the World in Five Bookes

      Graies Inn And Furnivalls Inn Gates In Holborne & at the hand and Bible in Duck lane: R Best, Jo Place & Sam Cartwright, 1652 A good copy of an early edition of Ralegh's history, first published circa 1616. Ralegh (circa 1552-1618) wrote the work while imprisoned in the Tower of London - intending it to contain Five Books to bring it up to modern time. He only completed Book I. In early full leather binding with blind stamp to the centre of both boards dated 1688. Complete with 6 double page maps and 2 folding battle plans. With decorative head and tailpieces and initial capitals. Contents: decorative title page placed as a frontispiece; second title page with portrait of Ralegh; Preface - 32pp; Chapter Index 25pp; Book 1 pp1-184; Book 2 pp 181-555. Page numbering restarts with Book 3 pp 1-129; Book 4 pp130-260; Book 5 pp 261-669; Note to the Reader 2pp; Chronological Tables 24pp; Index 24pp. The binding has been repaired at some point - possibly in the 1800's - replacing the spine and adding a newer title label, while retaining the boards. This repair is showing wear at the joints and at the top and bottom of the spine. The boards show wear to corners particularly and to the top edge. Internally the preliminary and end leaves were replaced at the repair; the 2 title pages have been repaired (there was some loss to the second title page); early leaves have some paper repairs (well done); there is some neat scholarly annotation at some points; there are 2 areas of worm damage - one from page 260 in the top margin close to the gutter (this continues for a number of pages - it affects the chapter headings at some points but does prevent the text being read) and one in the outer side margin of pages 371-471 which does not affect text; there is repair to some maps but this has been well done; and some of the page numbering is wrong eg p 512 followed by p 517 but there is no break in the text. Generally the text is clean and in good order. There is occasional marking. Please ask if you would like to see additional images.

        L'Hydrographie ou Description de l'Eau

      Paris,: Chez l'Auteur, 1652.. Handcoloured engraved map, 400 x 545 mm. (plate size), a little rubbed at right-hand margin yet a lovely impression, framed. Stately double-hemisphere map by Nicolas Sanson, cartographer extraordinaire and geographer to Louis XIII. Sanson's principal historical importance lies in his role as a disseminator of knowledge: 'His maps, geographical tables and teaching captured the attention of persons no less eminent than Richelieu, Fouquet, the chancellor Seguier, and Cardinal Mazarin...The regard of such illustrÈs reveals Sanson as an important conduit of geographical knowledge to centres of power in France, which at this time was at its most important period of expansion in Canada, the West Indies, Africa, and the Near East' (Pedley, Imago Mundi 44).As a youth with a Jesuit education, Sanson displayed precocious intelligence and an unusual affinity for mapmaking. These valuable attributes attracted the attention of Cardinal Richelieu, then first minister of the king, who introduced Sanson to the inner circle of Louis XIII. So began a contradictory life of royal patronage and personal poverty. Sanson undertook significant financial and personal risk in coming to Paris and issued over 300 maps in the course of his career. His prodigious output and widespread prestige began a shift in European map production and heralded the end of the Dutch domination of the cartographic market during the seventeenth-century.In its depiction of the antipodes the map is vague and amorphous, demonstrating an indifferent treatment of the Dutch discoveries in Western Australia during the early seventeenth-century. As with so many world maps and globes of the era, the southern hemisphere is dominated by an imagined Terre Australe of vast proportions to offset the landmass of the northern hemisphere.

Composta no anno de 1652. PELO PADRE ANTONIO VIEYRA ZELOSO DA PATRIA. Correcta, e emendada de muitos erros; e assim também a verá o curioso leytor com as palavras, e regras, que por inadvertencia faltaraõ na passada impressaõ.

Gravura do Padre António Vieira retratado em 1697. Inocêncio I, 307. "A Arte de Furtar foi prohibida em Hespanha por édito da Inquisição de. de Janeiro de 1755, e ahi se declara ser falsamente attribuida ao P. Antonio Vieira. Passou depois para o corpo dos Indices Expurgatorios do mesmo Tribunal e ainda no ultimo, impresso em Madrid, 1790, a encontro a pag. 277, com a mencionada declaração. Excluida assim a idea de que a obra fosse de Vieira, restava indagar a qual dos escriptores seus contemporaneos poderia attribuir-se com maior verosimilhança. Alguns criticos, tractando este ponto talvez com nimia prudencia, não quizeram arriscar a respeito d’elle uma opinião decisiva. Segundo os autores destes estudos a Arte de Furtar tem sido atribuída aos seguintes literatos: P. António Vieira, João Pinto Ríbeiro por Ferreira Gordo, Diogo de Almeida por Alves Sinval Tomé Pinheiro da Veiga por Cunha Rivara Duarte Ribeiro de Macedo citado por Camilo C. Branco Alexandre de Gusmão por Teófilo Braga, António de Sousa de Macedo por Solidónio Leite. Estas opiniões baseiam-se em conjecturas, aceitáveis umas, e outras refutáveis." "Arte de Furtar, etc. Amsterdam, por Agostinho Schagen 1744. 4.º de 409 pag. A ser verdade o que se lê na advertencia preliminar da edição de Londres (de que tracto em seguida) ha exemplares com indicações identicas, mas que mostram ser de edições diversas. Distinguem-se uns dos outros por terem estes 508 paginas em vez das 409 d’aquelles, sendo de typo mais graudo, linhas menos juntas, e mais incorrecta na orthographia. Não sendo provavel que no mesmo anno se fizessem duas edições da obra, é de suppor que a segunda seja mais moderna que a outra, com quanto no rosto se lhe conservassem data, e nome do impressor copiadas da antecedente. Creio poder asseverar sem receio, que uma d’estas edições, se não ambas, sahiram na realidade da typographia do impressor João Baptista Lerzo, o mesmo que no anno de 1742 reimprimiu em Lisboa o tractado de Manu Regia de Gabriel Pereira de Castro. Pelo menos é facto averiguado, e de que tenho provas, que este impressor vendeu por aquelles tempos, e a diversos individuos, alguns exemplares da Arte de Furtar, em papel, pelo preço de 1:200 réis cada um."

        The workes of Edmund Gunter, containing the description of the sector, cross-staff, and other instruments; with a canon of artificial sines & tangent, &c. Much enlarged by the author. Together with a new treatise of fortification. Whereunto is now added the further use of the quadrant fitted for daily practice. By Sam. Foster late professor of Astronomie in Gresham-Colledge London

      With engraved frontispiece of Gunter's scale, engraved allegorical title, and additional title for Canon triangulorum, or tables of artificiall sines and tangents dated 1652; numerous woodcut text illustrations, diagrams and charts many full-page, woodcut initials, head- and tailpieces. Complete with the 4 slips tipped in, all uncut in their original sheets, including the often-lacking volvelle, The Nocturnall. Contemporary speckled calf, re-backed and re-cornered; signature Pp browned and foxed, otherwise an excellent copy from the library of Frank L. Streeter, with his bookplate. First edition of the collected works of Gunter. Although the title states that this is a third edition, neither STC, Wing, nor NUC record anything earlier; it is most likely that earlier editions of the Canon and the Sector were taken into account. Included is Gunter's first published work, the Canon triangulorum (first printed 1620), which was the first table of trigonometric functions to be published, and which includes at the end The first thousand logarithmes now againe set forth by the author Henrie Briggs. Gunter is widely considered to be one of the inventors of the logarithm, along with Napier (1550-1617) and Gunter's close friend Henry Briggs (1561-1630). Gunter's important descriptions of his ground-breaking instruments as well as his considerable work on surveying figure in the present work.& & Gunter (1581-1626), mathematician and professor of astronomy, was one of the great instrument-makers of the seventeenth century. He made numerous scientific contributions to mathematics, and invented a number of important nautical and surveying instruments including the surveying-chain, a quadrant, a scale, and a simple form of the slide-rule. He was also the first to use the terms cosine, cotangent and cosecant for the sine, tangent and the secant for the complement of an arc. Foster (d. 1652) succeeded Gunter as professor of astronomy at Gresham College. &

A very good copy in an attractive binding. Jean-Pierre Camus (1584-1652) Bishop of Belley from 1609-1628 was a fervent disciple of Saint François de Sales. He was a prolific writer, author of at least 186 works. These include about 30 works of fiction, both novels or romances and short stories. His dark and violent stories, often based on contemporary anecdotes or criminal incidents (he wrote over 1000 such works) were in the tradition of the horrific tales ("histoires tragiques") of Matteo Bandello, popular in France in the late Renaissance and early seventeenth century. His longer works such as Iphegene (Nature's Paradox) show the influence of ancient Greek novels (such as the works of Heliodorus of Emesa and Achilles Tatius), with their scenes of tempests and kidnappings. Much of his fiction has a moralistic intention, showing human folly, the unruliness of passions, the dangers of illicit love, and the saving grace of divine love. Nature's Paradox is referenced by Lowndes, Bibliographer's Manual, page 364. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING.

        Nova Totius Terrarum Orbis Geographica Ac Hydrographica Tabula Autore. N. I. Piscator

      Amsterdam, 1652. No Binding. Very Good. 18 x 22 inches. Superb hand color; excellent condition. Very rare; separately published. One of the most richly embellished, Dutch world maps acquirable today. This artistically ambitious work with vignettes along all four borders depicts 12 Roman Emperors on richly caparisoned horses in the top and bottom. In the four corners are allegorical female figures astride animals symbolizing the continents. In the side panels are city views and illustrations of indigenous peoples, including North American natives. Jerusalem, Rome, Amsterdam, Havana and Mexico City are among the cities depicted. Though geographically similar to Blaeu and Jansson's world maps plotted on the Mercator Projection, Visscher's work provided important updating, notably throughout eastern Canada, including Hudson's Bay, where important explorations are reflected. Also, Tierra del Fuego is more clearly seen here as a distinct landmass, now no longer connected at all to the mythical Southern Continent. Curiously, the St. Lawrence River extends as far as the mid-point of the present-day United States, where it is fed by a lake. The map's engraver is not named but was probably Pieter Goos, who engraved the companion hemispherical world map published a year earlier (Shirley 346) that is in a similar style. Also supporting Goos's involvement in both maps is that the same error, dating the discovery of America 1592/ 1599, is repeated on both maps. In 1666, Goos would produce one of the most beautiful sea atlases of the Dutch period. Shirley 350.
