Van Helmont is celebrated as one of the first to conduct quantitative biological experiments one of the founders of biochemistry one of the first to recognize that there are several air like substances, and the originator of the word gas (from the Flemish pronunciation of the Greek word 'chaos') to describe them and the author of the modern ontological conception of disease. Van Helmont was, like Paracelsus, an alchemist and a mystic, but above all he believed in experiment and empiricism as the path to true knowledge. He was a sceptic in Boyle's sense of the word, and rejected the scholasticism of his contemporaries. Not surprisingly he was persecuted in his own time, and much admired by Boyle. 'In medicine, he introduced the examination of the specific gravity of urine for diagnostic purposes. He investigated the fluids in the human body and advanced the hydrochloric acid some two hundred years before the actual discovery of this fact. He also appreciated the significance of bile in the gut for digestion. Helmont's significance in the development of chemistry is per … [Click Below for Full Description]

L'ouvrage est orné en outre de nombreux bois dans le texte et de 11 gravures en taille-douce, dont 2 à pleine page. Cette somme magnifique, l'une des premières consacrées à la description d'un cabinet de curiosité, dépeint le musée d'histoire naturelle du médecin et savant danois Ole Worm (1588-1654) en quatre parties : minéraux, plantes, animaux et "artificialia" manufacturés par l'homme. L'ouvrage a paru après la mort de son auteur, son fils Willum Worm se chargeant de l'édition, qu'il dédie au roi de Danemark Frédéric III. Le Museum Wormianum est célèbre pour l'illustration figurant l'intérieur du cabinet, gravure devenue emblématique des cabinets de curiosités. Le titre du catalogue et l'adresse "Ex officina Elzeviriorum" y sont inscrits, sur la table au premier plan, reposant sur un dallage en damier.

(PALLAVICINO). BRUSONI, GIROLAMO (c. 1614-186?).
1655. Venice, Turrini, 1655. 12mo (147 x 83 mm). 24pp. Title within double fillet border. Full-page engraved portrait of Pallavicino on title verso, signed Jac. Pi. (Giacomo Piccini). Gold-tooled green crushed morocco, sies with central grotesque tool and tiny fleurons at angles of a blind double fillet panel, spine gilt lettered with five faux raised bands, edges and turn-ins gilt, by Lortic; untrimmed. Provenance: Charles Butler (Warren Wood Hatfield bookplate); Bernard Breslauer. Repaired marginal tear in A10, grazing text; else a wonderful copy. First separate edition, second issue, dated 1655 and with the portrait, of Brusoni's brief biography of his friend Ferrante Pallavicino (1615-1644), defrocked monk, novelist, virulent anti-clerical satirist and fellow member of Loredano'Accademia degli Incognit. Pallavicino is best known for him being the only libertine of his generation to die for his beliefs. On a visit to Avignon, at the age of 28, he was imprisoned and beheaded. The author, Brusoni, was a libertine monk like Pallavicino and like him he was imprisoned for his beliefs; he spent time in a Venetion prison in 1644 for attacking the Church and its censorship of books. His fear of meeting his friend's fate made him toe the line thereafter. When he was released from prison he spent six or seven years in a monastery, in uncharacteristic silence, before publishing the present work, which lay the foundation for the exaltation of Pallavicino as libertine anti-hero. Considered by some Brusoni's best work, the Vita di Ferrante Pallaviciono floats in ambivalence, as Bruson … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bound in contemporary vellum, title written in ink on spine and on lower edges; usual mild discoloration and light foxing on scattered leaves; several quires browned as usual. Generally a fine, wide-margined and fresh copy. First collected edition of Galileo's works, appearing only a year after his death and of great interest for his 17th-century reception: this was the edition in which Newton and later eminent scientists read their Galileo. Included here are not only most of the seminal pieces written and published over a lifetime, including the Starry Messenger of 1610, the first work of modern observational astronomy, but additional publications and letters by both supporters and antagonists. Together in one work they offer a veritable panorama of scientific activity in Italy during the first half of the seventeenth century, and are critical for the history of the formation of Galileo's text. The Opera contains many unpublished or little-known items provided to the editors by Vincenzo Viviani, Galileo's friend and disciple. Among them are a number of Galileo's hitherto unpublis … [Click Below for Full Description]

NIEUHOF, Johan.
1655. Howgego G-85, N-25; Landwehr & V.d. Krogt, VOC 539; Löwendahl 147; Tiele, Bibl. 800. Third edition, in the original Dutch, of "the definitive account" (Howgego) of the embassy that the VOC (Dutch East India Company) sent to the Emperor of China, the entire trip occupying the years 1655 to 1657. Nieuhof's eyewitness account, first published in 1665, was the first extensively illustrated book describing China and is, among works on China, "bis heute eines der bedeutendsten und gesuchtesten" (Walravens). The second part gives a general description of the Chinese empire, including botany and zoology. The first part covers the East Indies and Southeast Asia before going on to China itself. Japan, Korea and Formosa appear as well.Nieuhof served as steward, artist and chronicler on Pieter de Goyer and Jacob de Keyzer's VOC embassy to the Chinese Emperor. The party got a more intimate view of China than almost any other Dutch visitors of the 17th century, and the breadth of Nieuhof's interests and the large number of drawings he made provided a wealth of new material that makes the present work an essential primary source.Good copy with the owners stamp of Friedrich Emanuel Hurter (b. 1787; ''Reichshistoriograff in Wien'') on the verso of the frontispiece and his signature on the first flyleaf, dated 1805.
