      London: Printed by T[homas] C[hilde] for Ralph Smith, 1654. FIRST EDITION . Hardcover. 165 x 102 mm (6 1/2 x 4"). 4 p.l., 277, [3] pp. Published by Anthony Tuckney, D.D., Master of Saint Johns College in Cambridge. FIRST EDITION. Original unlettered rustic sheep, recently and expertly resewn, rebacked, and recornered. Brinley 560; Sabin 17049; Wing C-6413. A bit of rubbing to edges, boards slightly marked and stained, but the binding now very well restored and generally quite pleasing. Frequent light spotting and browning (but never severe, and noticeable in only a couple of gatherings), one small, dark rust hole, otherwise very satisfactory internally, and in a much better state of preservation than most early American imprints. This is a very scarce copy of an early Americanum, a work based on sermons preached in the Massachusetts Bay Colony by Puritan divine John Cotton (1584-1652), grandfather of Cotton Mather. In the words of ANB, the elder Cotton was "one of the most influential leaders . . . in the first generation of New England's settlement" and someone who "brought a scholar's erudition to his practice as preacher, biblical interpreter, disputant, and analyst of spiritual experience." Although his non-conformist views forced him to emigrate from England to America, he was known in New England for his opposition to dissent within the church and was one of the major opponents of Roger Williams, who was banished from the colony for his religious beliefs. The present exegetical text is the source for the wonderful phrase, "to every thing there is a season." The work is rarely encountered in the marketplace, ABPC listing just one copy at auction since 1975.

        Anatomia hepatis

      London: Du-Gard for Pulleyn, 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. 165 x 111 mm. Vellum c. 1654, author's name in ink in a later hand on spine. Very fine, crisp copy. Long neat marginal note in pen in an early hand, a few pencilled notes in the same hand. Minute early owner's signature (?) on front free endpaper, along with gift inscription dated October 9, [19]23 from Harry Friedenwald (1864-1950), author of The Jews and Medicine (1944-46; G-M 6501.1), to Louis P. Hamburger.First Edition. Garrison-Morton 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, 29). DSB. Lilly, p. 67. Norman 911. Russell 322.

      London: Printed by J. G. for Nathanael Webb and William Grantham, 1654. FIRST EDITION . Hardcover. Diatribe against Over-long Locks and Cosmetics, with Warnings of Bleeding Hair and Bodily Afflictions. 152 x 95 mm (6 x 3 3/4"). 4 p.l., 125 pp. FIRST EDITION. Recent unadorned polished calf in the style of the period, raised bands. Front pastedown with engraved armorial bookplate of Edward Astle, Esq. (see below). Wing H-429; McAlpin III, 72; Thomason E. 1489(3). Leaves somewhat browned, especially at edges (perhaps from fire?), occasional minor spots of foxing or rust, two pages with one-inch ink blot (one of these partially obscuring a sidenote), one sidenote just grazed by the binder, but still a very good copy of a book expected to be found in poor shape, with nothing approaching a fatal defect. With warnings of acute consequences for libertine expressions of both sexes, this is first and foremost a puritanical diatribe against the fashion for long hair among men, backed by scriptural arguments and the 17th century version of urban legends. Described by DNB as "a man who fought all his life against popular revels and pastimes," Thomas Hall (1610-65) warns here of a dire disease in which matted "snakes" of long hair become infested with vermin and bleed when pricked with a needle. Not lacking in imagination, Hall claims that sufferers in Poland who cut off the offending hair "lost their eyes" or had some other body part grievously afflicted. His aversion to long hair on men is extreme: he mentions approvingly his fellow Puritan William Prynne's attack on "love-locks," but fears Prynne does not go far enough in condemning the scourge of hirsuteness. After 95 pages of lecturing men on their hairstyles, Hall turns his attention to the fashion crimes of women. Make-up is "the badge of the harlot," and a bare decolletage an invitation to adultery. When Charles II ushered in the Restoration, Hall's parishioners ushered out their joyless minister, whose sentiments and world view suddenly ran contrary to those fostered by the monarch, and he died five years later. Former owner Edward Astle (1770-1816) was the son of famous antiquary and major manuscript collector Thomas Astle (1735-1803), and was a bibliophile in his own right. The elder Astle also had a library of around 1,500 printed books in addition to his early manuscripts, and it is possible that our volume was once a part of his collection. This is not a common book: OCLC finds just nine copies in U.S. libraries, and the Macclesfield copy is the only other one that appears in auction records since 1975.

      B. Deuersin, & Z. Masotti, Rome 1654 - Folio (8-1/2" x 12-1/2") bound in contemporary vellum; [xxxii (including engraved title-page)], 618, [24] pages. Title page printed in red and black with engraved printer's device; additional engraved title page; woodcut initials; head- and tailpieces; full-page engraved arms of the dedicatee, Ferdinand IV; about 50 tables and several examples of musical scores in the text; 215 woodcut illustrations; and 34 mostly full-page engraved plates. The last, best, and most valuable edition, as well as the first one in folio, of one of the major scientific works by the most famous German Jesuit scholar. Kircher examines all aspects of magnetism-from that of the earth to animals, music, and love--and presents some daring theories such as the positive effects of music on the victims of tarantula bites. He also describes his construction of a magnetic clock and how it functions. Ferguson I, 467; Merill 6: "This third edition of 'Magnes', the finest and most complete of the three editions, was greatly enlarged by Kircher. It contains many observations and experiments not in the two previous editions"; Ronalds 267; STC 461; Wellcome III, 394; Wheeler Gift 116a: "Celebrated work. It deals with electrics as well as magnetics, showing great versatility and encyclopaedic knowledge. He controverts Gilbert's theories in magnetism and those of Kepler in astronomy." Two small institutional stamps on the title page with an early annotation. Worming to the title and first few pages as well as the last few of the index and the binding, extensive on a few pages; the rest of the text fine. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

This a translation of Camus' ƒlise, ou, L'innocence Coupable, which was first published in 1621. "Jean-Pierre Camus was one of the most prolific authors of the period 1620-1648. His prose is succinct, without the elaborate rhetoric of authors -- such as Antoine de Nervze -- from the previous generation. He also shows a vast knowledge of poetry. Camus's first works were strongly influenced by the Essays of Michel de Montaigne, albeit with more religious content. His spiritual works were directly inspired by Saint Franois de Sales; he was critical of mendicant orders and wrote extensively on poverty, grace and spiritual reflection. His fictional works encompass both novels 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 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."

        Manuscript Family History and Autobiographical Writings

      Tall 8vo (10 1/4 x61/4), later half morocco and marbled boards, (60 pages with text) 160 pp. A complete index of names mentioned is included at the rear. Binding well worn, internally disbound with loose signatures, some aging and toning, but text pretty clean and easy to read. The first approximately 60 pages provide a detailed genealogy of the ancestors and descendants of Rev. Grant Powers of Goshen, Connecticut from the first Powers to come to America in 1654. His manuscript takes us to 1840. Following the genealogy there are about 60 pages of autobiographical writings of Rev. Grant, presumably unpublished. However, Rev. Powers was the author of "Historical Sketches of the Discovery, Settlement, and Progress of Events in the Coos Country and Vicinity, between 1754 & 1785." He also delivered an address to the people of Goshen, Connecticut in 1838, which were published. The Powers family included distinguished citizens from several New England states including Connecticut, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts. Rev. Powers wrote this family record upon his being diagnosed with Angina Pectoris and in anticipation of his inevitable death. He died April 1,

        His Highness Speech To Parliament in The Painted Chamber, At Their Dissolution, Upon Monday the 22d. Of January, 1654

      London: Henry Hills, 1654 Book. Very Good-. Hardcover. 1st Edition. The prior owner, as was his occasional habit, has penciled the items Wing Listing #C7171 at the margin of the first title page, above this a trace of old/mild erasure is evident. The sum of the printing information,"Published To prevent Mistakes, and false copies. LONDON, Printed by Henry Hills Printer to His Highness The Lord Protector, and to be sold at the sign of Sir John Oldcastle near Py-Corner. MDCLIV." The pamphlet has been bound in navy cloth boards and numbers 36 pages (last page is note from Jessop forbidding reprint). Size is 7 3/8 X 5" collation quarto. Spine is neatly labeled in gilt on black. The listed grade may be thought of as a compromise between the restoration, newish and nicely done, and the text which has age darkening and edge chip and other issues which will be specified. Specfically, the title page has a mild crease which may or may not be visible in foto to accompany listing. The first page of text has lower corner piece missing (1/2 postage stamp size) and the last 2 pages have tinier chips out at their lower edge. The lower edge has the sort of unevenness of finishing and consistent darkness that I associate with a natural cutting at time of the books making, the same is the case with the fore-edge. The top edge has micro dog ear and tiny chip coming out at upper corner of 13th page. The later pages, in some cases, have partial number cropping at top, I supect this is as made, as this edge is darkened and surely was not altered to fit the modern reworking. Text is complete and has some fox, wrinkle and so forth, all seeming quite legible even where the typography is imperfect as is the case with the first page..

Scipione Mazzella, Italian writer and historian was born in Naples around the middle of the sixteenth century. Very little is known about Mazella except what may be gleaned only from his works. He wrote several works on antiquities and history. His major work Descrittione del Regno di Napoli was highly praised for its breadth of vision and its contribution to knowledge of the Kingdom of Naples as a whole, at the end of the sixteenth century. Mazella's work "represents a significant development ... and goes beyond merely a celebration of the capital but systematically observes the Kingdom of Naples as a whole. The book was translated into English by Samson Lennard and published under the title The Kingdom of Naples, London 1654. It was edited by James Howell, "a writer particularly attentive to events in Naples, as shown by his own A History of the Late Revolutions in the Kingdom of Naples, (London 1652)." According to Pedio (1973) much of our current knowledge of Naples in the early seventeenth century is derived from the work Mazella.

        Meditationes de Prima Philosophia. In quibus Dei existentia, & animae humanae à corpore distinctio, demostrantur. Unito con: DESCARTES, Réné. Musicae. Compendium. Amsterdam, apud Joannem Janssonium juniorem, 1651..

      Amsterdam, apud Lodovicum Elzevirium, 1654. 1654 In -4, pp. (12) 191 (1 b.); 164 (appendix); 88 (epistola a Voetius); (4) 34 (Musica). Leg. piena pelle dell?epoca, dorso a nervetti con tit. e fregi oro (cuffie consumate, piccolo danno alla parte alta di una cerniera). Qualche leggero alone di umido al margine alto di alcune carte. Buon esemplare. Quinta edizione latina, sesta edizione complessiva considerando quella in francese del 1647 (La prima venne pubblicata a Parigi nel 1641). Nelle sue sei meditazioni Cartesio cerca di scoprire un metodo per stabilire cosa può essere conosciuto con certezza. A queste seguono le osservazioni indirizzate a vari teologi e filosofi che avevano formulato obiezioni al suo sistema metafisico: Johannes Caterus, Frate Marin Mersenne, il filosofo inglese Thomas Hobbes, il teologo e logico Antoine Arnauld e il filosofo, Pierre Gassendi. In questa edizione troviamo anche una ulteriore risposta alla obiezione di Gassendi insieme a una confutazione più tarda che era stata inviata a Cartesio dal gesuita Pierre Bourdin, ed una appendice contenente una lettera indirizzata al gesuita, padre Dinet per confutare le accuse che erano state fatte in precedenza dal Voetius. Le ultime 88 pagine contengono l?epistola allo stesso teologo olandese, suo nemico dichiarato. Nelle Meditationes compare per la prima volta la celebre locuzione Cogito ergo Sum. Il compendio con la sua teoria sulla musica, è la prima opera di Cartesio. Dopo averlo scritto nel 1618 ne affidò il manoscritto ad uno studente, Isaac Beeckmann, col quale aveva fatto amicizia a Brema dopo la laurea in giurisprudenza. Il manoscritto venne restituito all?autore nel 1629, che però non lo fece pubblicare. La prima edizione del trattato vide la luce postuma solo nel 1650 proprio grazie a Beeckmann che ne aveva fatta una copia. Nel Compendium Musicae Cartesio cerca di comprendere i motivi per cui la musica ha il potere di commuovere, studiandone le caratteristiche principali, basandosi su un approccio aritmetico nei confronti del suono e della consonanza.

        Experimenta Nova (ut vocantur) Magdeburgica de Vacuo Spatio Primùm à R.P. Gaspare Schotto . . . nunc verò ab ipso Auctore Perfectiùs edita, variisque aliis Experimentis aucta. Quibus accesserunt simul certa quaedam De Aeris Pondere circa Terram; de Virtutibus Mundanis, & Systemate Mundi Planetario; sicut & de Stellis Fixis, ac Spatio illo Immenso, quod tàm intra quam extra eas funditur.Amsterdam: Johanned Jansson Waesberge, 1672.

      First edition, and a fine copy, of one of the great classics of science. "A book of prime importance in electrical discovery, air-pressure and the vacuum pump." Dibner 55; Evans 30; Horblit 44; Norman 952; Sparrow 99; Wheeler Gift 170. <br/><br/> Although diplomacy (during the Thirty Year War) and the position of Mayor of Magdeburg consumed much of Guericke's time, he devoted his brief leisure to scientific experiments. Guericke proved the existence of a vacuum through his famous experiment, illustrated by one of the double-page plates. "At Ratisbon in 1654 Guericke had performed one of the most dramatic experiments in the history of science, when, before the Imperial Diet, he showed how two teams of eight horses each could not separate a bronze pair of hemispheres from which he had exhausted the air" (Dibner, Founding Fathers of Electrical Science). To create the vacuum, Guericke invented the air-pump, and in a series of experiments that followed he demonstrated the weight and elasticity of air. The air-pump became of fundamental importance for the study of the physical properties of gases. <br/><br/> Guericke also demonstrated electrical attraction and repulsion, the discharging power of points, and constructed the first electrical generator. "Guericke constructed a spherical rotor of sulphur mounted on a crank; its rotation and contact upon it generated the first visible and audible electric sparks" (ibid.). As the Wheeler Gift catalogue remarks, "this remarkable work on experimental philosophy ranks next to Gilbert's in the number and importance of the electrical discoveries described." <br/><br/> Guericke's experiments were motivated by his profound Copernican cosmological views on the nature and composition of space, which are fully set forth in the present work (see DSB).. Folio (315 x 202 mm), pp [xvi, including the engraved title] 244 [6] with engraved title, engraved portrait of the author, two double-page engraved plates, and 21 engraved plates in text, many full-page (plate XVIII repeated, as is correct). A very fine copy in contemporary vellum, completely unrepaired, internally fresh and clean. Rare in such fine condition

        Topografia Helvetiae Rhaetiae et Valesiae

      Frankfurt: Matthaeus Merian, 1654. Folio (12 x 8 inches). Letterpress title-page with woodcut printer&#39;s device. Additional engraved title-page dated 1642, 2 double-page engraved maps of Germany and Switzerland, and 78 fine engraved plates, including 64 double-page and or folding (numerous marginal tears, some with early repairs crossing the image, a few pale stains, some minor worming to the last few gatherings affecting the images and text). Contemporary limp vellum (soiled, stained and joints split at the head and foot of the spine). Provenance: obscured ownership inscription dated 1665 on the title-page; inscribed by Gabriel le Clerc on the front paste-down and the title-page and dated 1685; lengthy inscription dated 1814 on the verso of the third blank. Third edition in German, first published in 1642, and then reissued many times and added to by Merian&#39;s son Caspar in 1653. The "Topographia Helvetiae" formed the first part of an extensive general topography of Germany. The author Matthaus Merian was a notable Swiss engraver born 1593 in Basel. He learned copperplate engraving in Zurich, though he studied later in such cities as Strasbourg, Nancy and Paris. He returned to Basel in 1615, moving to Frankfurt 1616. There he worked for Johann Theodor de Bry, the celebrated publisher whose daughter, Maria Magdelana he married in 1617. In 1620 he and his family moved back to Basel, though they returned to Frankfurt in 1623. Maria took over her father&#39;s publishing house upon his death. Brunet 1529; Graesse VII 509; Wuthrich IV, 6.. Book.

      Profp. der Statt Parys wei folche an ietso an sufehen 1654 (Paris, France)Mathias MerianLarge illustrated plate from Topographia GalliaeAmsterdam: 1661Copperplate engravingSheet size: 12" x 32 1/2"Mathias Merian was one of the most prominent members of the leading print publishing family of 17th-century Germany, known throughout Europe for his engravings of cityscapes and landscapes, his scientific books, and his editions of the noted series of travel books, the ?Great Voyages.? Born and trained in Basel, Switzerland, Merian joined the Frankfurt publishing house of Johann Theodor de Bry in 1616 and, the following year, he married de Bry?s daughter Maria Magdalena. Merian gained his greatest acclaim as head of the family publishing house following the death of his father-in-law in 1623. He rapidly and almost single-handedly built up the house to become one of the most important in Europe, etching most of the plates himself until about 1645, when he increasingly relied upon the help of a growing staff of assistants and pupils -- among them Wenceslaus Hollar, Rudolf and Conrad Meyer of Zurich, and his sons-in-law Christoph Le Blon and Melchior Kusel. His most famous pupil, however, would prove to be his daughter, Maria Sybillia Merian, a truly exceptional botanical artist of the early 18th century.
