        Anatomia hepatis

      Du-Gard for Pullein, London 1654 - Glisson's Capsule GLISSON, Francis (1597?-1677). Anatomia hepatis. Cui praemittuntur quaedam ad rem anatomicam universe spectantia. . . . 8vo. [48] 458 [14]pp. 2 folding engraved plates, engraved text illustration, text woodcuts. London: Du-Gard for Octavian Pulleyn, 1654. 166 x 111 mm. 17th cent. calf, rebacked, endpapers renewed. Marginal dampstaining, lower edge of pp. 301-2 repaired, other lower edges frayed. Early inscriptions on flyleaf and title.First Edition. G-M 972. The first book printed in England to present a detailed account of a single organ based on original research, and the most important book to date on the physiology of the digestive system. Glisson used advanced anatomical methods, such as casts and injection of colored fluids, which enabled him to illustrate the vessels of the liver (portrayed in the two engraved plates). He described the passage of blood from the portal vein to the vena cava, and proved that lymph flows not to the liver, as was then believed, but from it, passing to the recently discovered capsula communis. This fibrous capsule, which Glisson was the first to describe accurately, is now known as "Glisson's capsule."Educated at Cambridge, where he later served as Regius Professor of Physic, Glisson was part of the extraordinary ferment in medicine and the life sciences that occured in the two English universities in the earlier seventeenth century. Like his influential colleague and friend, William Harvey, Glisson epitomized the English style of biological research: he was theoretically conservative and non-dogmatic; and at the same time he was committed to a rigorous program of experimentation, precise observation, and accurate description. His principal publications, especially the Anatomia hepatis, join an experimental exactitude and direct observation of the particular with a felt concern to preserve basic Aristotelian and Galenic traditions of natural philosophy. . . . Glisson's classic work on the liver . . . was based on dissections that Glisson had done over a decade earlier. It was the first work to recast fundamentally the physiology of the abdominal organs, to delineate the structure and function of the liver, and to identify and describe the fibrous tissue encasing the liver (Glisson's capsule). It also introduced Glisson's important concept of 'irritability,' in which he argued that irritation was the organism's way of recognizing substances to be expelled. The property of irritability was thus basic to the health of the organism" (Grolier Club, 100 Books Famous in Medicine [forthcoming], 29). DSB. Lilly, p. 67. Norman 911. Russell 322.

        Opera Moralia, Parenetica, et Polemica, quae reperiri potuerunt. Quorum pleraque nunc primum ex antiquis manuscriptis Codicibus eruta, luci dantur; alia typis olim edita (collatione facta cum exemplaribus M.SS.) correctiora, varieque illustrata.

      apud Guilielmum Lesteenium & Engelbertum Gymnicum,, Antverpiae, 1654 - In-folio (325x200mm), pp. (28), 436, (32) di indici bicolonni, legatura coeva p. pergamena con dorso a 5 nervi rilevati. Frontespizio stampato in rosso e in nero con impresa tipografica. Testatine, capilettera e finaletti ornati incisi in xilografia. Al verso del titolo, stemma inciso su rame del dedicatario del volume, Bernard Bottyn. Le pp. nn. iniziali contengono la dedicatoria, sottoscritta da Karel De Visch, testimonianze di vari autori relative ad Alano da Lilla, varie approvazioni e componimenti encomiastici in versi latini. Al colophon, altra impresa tipografica, variante di quella riportata al titolo. Timbro e nota di possesso settecentesca all'occhietto. Bruniture e fioriture usuali, ma bell'esemplare. Rara seicentina di Anversa delle opere morali, teologiche, parenetiche, polemiche e di esegesi biblica di Alano da Lilla (Lilla, 1125 ca.–Citeaux, 1202). Interessanti i motivi polemici contro gli Ebrei, contro gli Albigesi (oggetto di acre polemica per la loro negazione dell'immortalità dell'anima) e contro i Valdesi, presenti alle pp. 201-278. Nella polemica antivaldese fa capolino il tema del rifiuto della pena di morte sostenuto dal valdismo. Scrive Adriano Prosperi in Dare l'anima. Storia di un infanticidio (Torino, Einaudi, 2005, p. 332): "Si capisce perché il ricorso ad una misura palesemente in contrasto col comandamento cristiano del "non uccidere" sollevasse così poche obiezioni nelle coscienze dei contemporanei: se si escludono piccoli gruppi ereticali come i valdesi e la loro intransigente difesa del letteralismo evangelico, non si trovano quasi altre contestazioni della liceità della pena di morte per tutta l'epoca qui presa in esame". Prosperi richiama direttamente la presente edizione (riportando per errore la data del 1653), segnalando le opere di Alano come interessante fonte per la conoscenza degli argomenti valdesi contro la condanna a morte.

      Gregorio e Giovanni Andreoli (et alii), 1654 - 1659, Viterbo - Perugia - Todi, - 4 opere in un vol. in-24° (135x75mm), cartonatura decorata coeva. Tagli azzurri. Bruniture e fioriture sparse; antico timbro di estinta biblioteca al frontespizio della prima opera. Discreto stato. La miscellanea comprende: 1) Giacinto Andrea Cicognini, "La Forza dell'Amicitia. Opera Tragica", in Viterbo, ad Istanza di Gregorio, e Giovanni Andreoli, 1659, pp. (8), 196. Vignetta xilografica a soggetto grottesco al titolo. Dedica a stampa a Giovanni Barbarossa da Montelupone, canonico di Loreto. Approvazioni preliminari. Seconda edizione, successiva di un anno alla prima impressa nel 1658 dal Pezzana di Venezia. La tragedia è ambientata nell'antica Licia e narra "una duplice storia d'amore di sapore boccaccesco" (Vinciana). Vinciana, 3884. Allacci, 370. Sanesi, II, pp. 188-189. 2) Id., "Il Maggior Mostro del Mondo, opera tragica", in Perugia, per Sebastiano Zecchini, 1656, pp. 104, (1). Frontespizio con titolo entro bordura architettonica istoriata con grottesche e stemma del dedicatario. Testatine e capilettera ornati su legno. Dedica a stampa a Curzio Marsilio e a Ranieri Tomasi. Edizione originale. La tragedia imita "El mayor monstruo los celos" di Calderon de la Barca; essa è "giudicata la miglior produzione teatrale del Cicognini, che supera lo spagnolo per maggiore penetrazione dei personaggi. L'azione si svolge a Gerusalemme e a Roma" (Vinciana). Vinciana, 3882-3883. Allacci, 495-496. Quadrio, IV, p. 114. Sanesi, II, pp. 178 e 194-197. 3) Id., "La Moglie di Quattro Mariti. Opera tragica", in Perugia, per Sebastiano Zecchini, 1656, pp. 115. Frontespizio con titolo racchuso entro bordura identica a quella della precedente tragedia. Dedica a stampa a Ridolfo Monaldi. Un restauro alla p. 47-48. Qualche testatina e capolettera ornato in xilografia. Edizione originale. La tragedia, ambientata a Londra, deriva da due drammi di Tirso de Molina, "El castigo del penseque" e "El vergonzoso en palacio". Vinciana, 3882. Sanesi, II, pp. 178 e 191. Allacci, 534-535. 4) Id., "La conversione di S. Maria Egizziaca. Rappresentazione", in Todi, per il Ciccolini, 1654, pp. 114. Al frontespizio, stemma vescovile in xilografia di monsignor Gaudenzio Poli, Vescovo di Amelia, cui l'edizione è dedicata dal Ciccolini. Testatine e capilettera ornati. Manca alla Vinciana. Il Cicognini (Firenze, 1606-Venezia, 1660), della nota famiglia fiorentina, figlio di Jacopo (prestigioso dramaturgo e grande promotore della vita teatrale della città), fu tenuto a battesimo dalla stessa Cristina di Lorena, Gran duchessa di Toscana; ingegno precocissimo, si laureò a Pisa a soli 21 anni. Perseguitato in seguito dai favoriti di casa Medici, emigrò a Venezia, dove rimase fino alla morte. Fecondo autore teatrale, librettista di Francesco Cavalli, fu imitatore, in circa 45 lavori tragici e comici, di Lope de Vega, di Tirso de Molina e di altri grandi autori spagnoli del Siglo de Oro. "Degli autori di comedie che leggevo e rileggevo spesso, il mio preferito era Cicognini", scrisse Goldoni nei "Mémoires", a conferma della larga fortuna che ancora nel Settecento ebbe l'ingente produzione dello scrittore fiorentino. Cfr., sull'arte del Cicognini: Sanesi, cit.; Belloni, Il Seicento, pp. 268-268, 290-291 e passim; Renda-Operti, 296-297. Cfr.

Deuxième édition, la première étant parue en 1644. Comme l'on sait, la Basoche, communauté des clercs des Procureurs du Parlement de Paris, formait une société à part, régie par ses propres règles, exerçant une quasi-juridiction sur ses membres. Moins sous l'éclairage historique général que les titulaires des grands offices du Parlement, elle eut une importance égale, notamment en soutenant en corps les revendications parlementaires tout au long de son existence. Elle formait presque un Etat dans l'Etat, à laquelle le pouvoir royal touchait moins que les officiers de judicature, sur lequel il possédait des leviers financiers. Dupin (1832), 1075.

        Glottiana Praefectura Inferior, cum Baronia Glascuensi, [vulgo], The nether ward of Clyds-dail and Glasco

      Amsterdam 1654 - Willem Janzoon Blaeu (1571-1638) 'Glottiana Praefectura Inferior, cum Baronia Glascuensi, [vulgo], The nether ward of Clyds-dail and Glasco' from "Le Théatre du Monde ou Nouvel Atlas” publsihed in Amsterdam, 1654. Copper plate engraving with original hand coloring. Paper size:24"x19 1/2". Condition: Generally good with some minor aging along margins and small repair in upper right corner. A map depicting part of scotland with an exquisite cartouche in the upper left corner. Willem Janzoon Blaeu (1571-1638) was the founding father of the single most important cartographic publishing company in the Netherlands for nearly one hundred years. Blaeu’s firm was based in Amsterdam, the center of European cartography at the time. Blaeu was also the hydographic expert for the famous East India Company and the chief cartographer of the United Republic of the Netherlands. Willem, along with his son Johanne, published the first two volumes of "Le Théatre du Monde ou Nouvel Atlas” in 1635 by 1672, however, the atlas had expanded into 12 volumes, the "Geographia Blaviana”, depicting in about 600 maps the entire known world with most up to date cartographic exactness of the time. The Bleau-atlasses, meant for the wealthiest Europeans, were produced using exceptionally high quality standards of engraving, typography, paper and hand-coloring, not to mention being expertly surveyed within the company. The maps are among the most beautiful ever made, embellished in the baroque style with ornamental cartouches and marvelous staffages so that the viewer is struck by the decorative value his eyes see.

      Nürnberg, Michael Endter, 1654.. . Seltene erste deutsche Ausgabe von kleineren Aufsätzen und Essays von Francis Bacon. Durch diese Übertragung des Barockdichters J. W. v. Stubenberg wurde "das deutsche Lesepublikum erstmals mit (Bacons) krassem Machiavellismus vertraut gemacht" (Dünnhaupt). Stubenberg, Herr auf der imposanten Schallaburg bei Melk in Niederösterreich, gehörte als Dichter und Übersetzer einem Kreis des österreichischen protestantischen Adels an, zu dessen bekanntesten Persönlichkeiten Catharina Regina v. Greiffenberg und W. H. v. Hohberg zählten, und der unter der Gegenreformation schwer zu leiden hatte. Stubenberg fand 1648 durch seine ersten literarischen Übersetzungen Aufnahme in der Fruchtbringenden Gesellschaft. - Mit einem Gedicht Stubenbergs an Johann Weichhard v. Auersperg (ihm ist diese Übersetzung gewidmet) zu dessen "Standserhöhung" sowie einem Gedicht G. Ph. Harsdörffers (Der Spielende), enthaltend eine "Poetische Umfrage: Was das Titelgemähl bedeute?". Es bezieht sich auf das schöne allegorische Titelkupfer. Dieses zeigt "Hof- und Bauersmann" am Teich stehend, in dem ihnen Bacon die Spiegelung der Sonnenstrahlen im Wasser erklärt: Der Gelehrte gleiche "der Sonne, dessen Geist mit holder Wonne, hochbeglänzet widerstrahlt". - Titel mit drei kleinen Löchlein (Tintenfraß) ohne Textberührung. Teils gebräunt bzw. stockfleckig. Gutes Exemplar. - VD17 23:302341X. Dünnhaupt 9 (nennt Bacons 'Essays' von 1597 als Vorlage). Goed. III, 247, 14, 4.

        Francisci Maurolyci Messanensis Emendatio, et Restitutio Conicorum Apollonii Pergaei. Nunc primùm typis excusae, ubi primi quatuor eiusdem Apollonij libri mendis, quibus foedè scatebant, expurgantur, novisque interdum demonstrationibus illustrantur

      Woodcut arms on title & numerous woodcut diagrams in the text. 4 p.l., 5-192 pp. Folio, cont. vellum over boards (binding a little soiled, first eight leaves with some light & mostly marginal dampstaining), spine gilt, green morocco lettering piece on spine. Messina: Heirs of P. Brea, 1654. First edition of an extremely rare book; WorldCat locates only one copy in an American library. This is Maurolico's attempt "to reconstruct books V and VI of the Conics from the brief references to them that Apollonius provided in his preface to the entire work. In Maurolico's time, only the first four books were known in the Greek original; he completed his restoration in 1547...(Although Maurolico's work is less famous than Viviani's, both Libri and Gino Loria cite it as an example of his genius)."-D.S.B., IX, p. 191. Maurolico also here re-worked books I-IV. Cajori, in his History of Mathematics (pp. 141-42), called Maurolico "the greatest geometer of the sixteenth century" and describes the present book as his "chief work...[it] is his masterly and original treatment of the conic sections, wherein he discusses tangents and asymptotes more fully than Apollonius had done, and applied them to various physical and astronomical problems." A native of Sicily, Maurolico (1494-1575), was raised in an intellectual environment dominated by Greek humanism. "During the 1530's Maurolico pursued his elucidations of classical mathematical texts...By 1540 Maurolico was ready to lay out a full scale programme for the renaissance of mathematics...It is important to remember that to Maurolico's mind even Greek mathematicians could err...Maurolico was certainly the most radical of Renaissance mathematicians in this respect. Whereas Commandino might emend Apollonius in odd passages, Maurolico undertook a full-scale reorganisation of the works of both Apollonius and Archimedes. The result, in the case of the Apollonius, was the first advance in the theory of conic sections since antiquity."-Rose, The Italian Renaissance of Mathematics, pp. 161-66-(and see Chapter 8 -- "Maurolico and the Renaissance of Greek Mathematics" -- for a full account of this book and Maurolico's achievements). Fine copy. Old private library stamp on title. ❧ Riccardi, II, 143. .
