GALILEI, GALILEO. - [DISCOVERING THE SUNSPOTS]
Bologna, HH. del Dozza, 1655. 4to. Later marbled boards. Gilt lettering to spine. Fronthinge weakening. Large, partly uncut copy. 7,(1),156 pp. Many textfigs. and textdrawings, including 20 pages depicting the famous sunspot-observations. Internally clan and fine. ¶ Scarce second edition, presumably as a SEPARATE ISSUE of the "Opere", 1655-56. In this work Galilei published for the first time his discovery of the Sunspots, and their explanation as contiguous, and he also here for the first time announced his acceptance of the Copernican system, leading to the Interdict of 1616."Galieo's Letters on Sunspots was published at Rome in 1613 under the auspices of the Lincean Academy. In this book Galileo spoke out decisively for the Copernican system for the first time in print. In the same book he found a place for his first published mention of the concept of conservation of angular momentum and an associated inertial concept. During its composition he had taken pains to determine the theological status of the idea of incorruptibility of the heavens, finding that this was regarded by churchmen as an Aristotelian rather than a Catholic dogma. But attacks against Galileo and his followers soon appeared in ecclesiastical quarters. These came to a head with a denunciation from the pulpit in Florence late in 1614."(DSB).

With engraved vignette on title and engraved portrait-plate. Contemporary full calf on 6 raised bands, gilt title on spine, panels and leading edges gilt; little bumped and rubbed, rear cover inkstained, front hinge partially cracked.. Fourth edition of the magnum opus of "one of the founders of medical jurisprudence" (Garrison/Morton 1720, ed. 1621-61). "Paolo Zacchia (1584-1659) was the personal physician of the popes Innocent X and Alexander VII, legal advisor to the Rota Romana and head of the health system in the Papal States. His most important work, written in Latin, is entitled "Quaestiones Medico-Legales" and was published in 9 volumes between 1621 and 1651. Even after Zacchia's death comprehensive reprints were published at several places up to the late 18th century. Zacchia covered all the medicolegal issues of his time including the problem of "malpractice" and medical ethics. He is rightly considered an outstanding representative of his profession, whose "Quaestiones Medico-Legales" gave legal medicine its name." (K. Händel in: Arch Kriminol. 2003 Sep-Oct;212(3-4):65f). - Browned, partially with weak waterstains in the margins, index with traces of worms in inner margin, not affecting the text.

Lugduni Batavorum, I. Elsevirium, 1655. Folio (350 x 220mm). pp. (12), 389, (3), with woodcut title-vignette and 139 woodcuts and 13 engravings in the text. Contemporary calf, gilt ornamented spine in 7 compartments, hinges split but firm (label on spine partly gone, a bit rubbed). First edition but without the portrait and the engraved double-page plate of the 'Museum Wormianum. The complete text with all the woodcuts and engravings of this beautifully produced catalogue of the most important North European 'Wunderkammer'. The first four chapters of the work are devoted to mineralogy. "Worm's collection took shape between 1620 and his death in 1654. His last great work was the folio volume 'Museum Wormianum' printed in Leiden and Amsterdam and issued the year after his death. It has secured his name as one of the founders not only of Danish but of European museums. The typographical model of the book was Piso and Markgraf's publication of the 'Historia Naturalis Brasiliae' from which some of the illustrations were also taken ... but the best of them were made in Copenhagen from drawings made under his own supervision... The arrangement of the material followed the principles of Imperato and Calceolari (Impey & MacGregor, The Origins of Museums, p. 123). /"There were some mouth-watering items in this early museum, including a Great Auk which Worm had once kept as a pet... The year after he died a folio volume describing his treasure was published and ten of its pages are devoted to shells, his nomenclature and classification being taken from the works of Gessner, Aldrovandi … [Click Below for Full Description]

DIGGES, Sir Dudly
London: by Tho: Newcomb, &c, 1655. 1 vol, (viii)441pp. (iii), small folio, with the engraved frontis by Faythorne of Burleigh, Elizabeth and Walsingham, frontis expertly laid down at some earlier date, title-page printed in red and black. Bound in full early calf over cords, neatly rebacked, gilt lettered red and black leather spine labels, hinges fine, text clean and bright throughout, overall a VERY GOOD sound copy. Queen Elizabeth I is shown here between two of her closest advisors: Lord High Treasurer Lord Burghley on the left, and Secretary of State Sir Francis Walsingham on the right. Queen Elizabeth came to the throne in 1558 and ruled until 1603. Her reign saw a sharp increase in the exploration of foreign lands. It was Burghley who openly questioned the Spanish and Portuguese claims to South America, advising the Queen on securing a foothold in America as well.

James Windet
At the Sign of the Pelican, Little Britain: Johannem Sherlaeum, 1655. The first edition, 1655, of Windet's celebrated rant against Rome and Catholicism, written entirely in Latin. A small quarto tract originally issued as a pamphlet presumably, this has at some time in the distant past been bound into boards covered with marbled paper - paper which had already been printed on, and some text in English is discernable beneath the marbling. All before title page and after Finis missing - if there ever was anything, which is far from certain. Two pages extolling the virtue of the publication; A two page preface dated 25 July 1655; 5 pages of introduction; Followed by the full text of the tract, paginated 1 to 70. A rambling, largely incoherent rant predicting the fall of Rome in 1666, closely printed with extensive marginal references. James Windet's life before he graduated as an MD at Leiden in 1655 is largely unknown - he became a member of the College of Physicians in 1656, and was, according to Wood (Ath. Oxon.) "A good Latin Poet, a most excellent linguist, a great rabbi, a curious critick, and rather shaped for the faculty of divinity than for that facutly he professed" A friend of Sir Thomas Browne, Wilkin, who examined Windet's letters to Browne, states that "they are most tedious and pedantic....utterly destitute of interest". Windet died in London on 20th November 1664 and was buried there on November 24th, thus narrowly avoiding the need to explain away the failure of his prediction! TEXT ENTIRELY IN LATIN.. First Edition.. Hard Cover. Fair/No Jacket.

SEMEDO, ALVAREZ.
London: E. Tyler for John Crook, 1655. Folio. 2 engraved portraits, 2 maps, one folding, 1 plate. Contemporary paneled calf. Extremities rubbed, spine chipped at head and foot. A very good copy in an appealing period binding. FIRST EDITION IN ENGLISH. Alvarez Semedo (or Semmedo) served as Portuguese Procurado General for China for many years. First published in Latin in 1642, this work is based on the author's observations and is "as yet unaffected by the later racialist or colonialist mythologies" that pervaded the work of later authors (Lust). "Semedo gives more detailed information about the Chinese language than Gonzalez de Mendoza (1585) and Trigault (1615)" (Lowendahl). A splendid Jewish-American association copy from the library of Joseph Solomon Ottolenghe (1711-1775), ink stamp on title, marginalia. Ottolenghe, born Giuseppe Salomone Ottolenghi i Casale Monferratto in Italy in 1711, was invited to England by his uncle. He converted from Judaism to English Protestantism and emigrated to Savannah, Georgia in 1751, first to work as a missionary among the blacks. Later he was appointed as superintendent of the local silk industry and published a treatise on the breeding of silk worms. He served as a member of the Georgia legislature from 1761-1765.
