Primera hoja de texto con gran orla con motivos vegetales y florales, sello de estampilla con escudo real en la parte superior. “Es Leguizamon un antiguo linaje de Bilbao relacionado en sus orígenes con los descendientes de Alvar Sánchez de Minaya, primo del Cid de Vivar, según Lope García de Salazar en sus Bienandanzas. Uno de ellos llegó a la localidad que lleva el nombre de Leguizamón fundando el solar del mismo nombre, en el barrio de Legizamon (Etxebarri-Doneztebek, cerca de Galdakao). Este linaje tiene ramas en Bilbao, Begoña, Areatza-Villaro y otros lugares de Bizkaia, y Gazteiz-Vitoria (Araba). A finales del siglo XV y principios del XVI los Leguizamon fueron prebostes de Bilbao. Sostuvieron numerosos combates y peleas con otros linajes, como los de Zamudio y Zurbarán.” [Blasones hispanos] En 1662 Felipe IV concedería a Pedro Ibañez de Segovia Leguizamón –hijo del leguizamon que nos ocupa– el título de Marqués de Gramosa, título al que Felipe V en 1741 otorgaría la Grandeza de España.

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).

Wilkins John
A Rouen chez Jacques Cailloüe, dans la Cour du Palais Relié 1655 Très rare ouvrage, ici bien complet de son frontispice présentant Copernic, Kepler et Galilée. 'L'oeuvre s'adresse au grand public plutôt qu'aux experts sur le sujet, et son but est de populariser la vision de l'univers que l'on doit à Copernic, Kepler et Galilée. Le principal argument est que la Lune n'est pas un disque brillant mais plutôt un monde avec un paysage comme celui de la Terre. Bien sûr Wilkins n'est pas le 1er à avancer une telle théorie ; par exemple Galilée l'a indiqué de manière semblable. De manière peut-être plus surprenante, il pense que la Lune est une planète habitable et prédit qu'un jour le voyage vers elle sera possible. Ici aussi Wilkins n'est pas le 1er à faire cette suggestion mais elle est typique de la manière dont il pense, permettant à son esprit de vagabonder au milieu d'idées que d'autres auraient trouvé trop non conventionnelles pour les considérer.' In-12 relié plein parchemin (relié et lavé en 1861 d'après une note sur la garde). D'après une note figurant au 1er contre-plat, l'ouvrage a été « lavé et relié en 1861 ». Sa couverture est en plein parchemin, probablement de récupération : des restes d'écriture manuscrite sont encore parfaitement visibles. Cette technique, assez usuelle aux XIXe et début du XXe siècle produit parfois des résultats imparfaits. Ici cependant, la reliure a été soigneusement réalisée et ne souffre d'aucun défaut.

SAINT-GERMAIN (Charles de)
Paris, Cardin Besongne, 1655 [et] Gervais Clouster, 1650. , , , 2 ouvrages en 1 volume in-8 de (12), 93 et (3) pages, puis (46) et 352 pages, maroquin havane de l'époque, sur les plats dentelle intérieure et extérieure dorée le long d'un double filet, puis d'importants compartiments au centre desquels figurent des fers en forme de cœur, et au centre des motifs quadrilobés, dos à 5 nerfs muet orné de volutes dorées, coupes et coiffes striées, Exemplaire de présentation à Marin Cureau de la Chambre, médecin ordinaire de Louis XIV et "conseiller du Roy en ses conseils". L'oublié Charles de Saint-Germain, médecin diplômé de la faculté de Montpellier, venu à Paris à la fin des années 1640, et devenu médecin ordinaire du Roi "en l'année 1652, non seulement en considération de la doctrine, capacité et expérience en la science et pratique de la médecine" (voir Alexandre Lunel, "La Maison médicale du roi", p. 132), publia en 1655, un livre de thérapeutique qui rencontra un certain succès et qui fut réédité en 1668, "Le Médecin royal, ou le Parfait médecin charitable". En outre, Saint-Germain reste connu, dans l'histoire de la médecine parisienne, pour avoir, après Théophraste Renaudot, voulu défier la puissante Faculté de Médecine de Paris en instituant en 1668 un corps des médecins provinciaux, c'est-à-dire une "Chambre syndicale" "qui aurait été pourvue du privilège d'agréger les médecins étrangers désireux d'exercer leur art dans la capitale" (cf, Lunel, p. 132). Cette nouvelle institution, concurrente de la Faculté, aurait été sous l'autorité directe du Pouvoir Royale par le bia … [Click Below for Full Description]

(Language of Flowers) (VULSON DE LA COLOMBIÈRE)
A La Haye: chez Adrian Vlacq, 1655; 1664. First published in 1647. Two works bound together. Among numerous topics for occult interest, entertainment and divination, Vulson de La Colombière offers here a 24- page language of flowers, a 17th century ancestor of the popular 19th century language of flowers genre. Preceding as it does the 18th century letters of Lady Mary Wortley Montague written from Turkey about this subject (often cited as a source for this interest) and mentioned by others, such as Aubry de La Mottraye, this work contributes to the discussion of the origins of such a "language" and to the role of flower symbolism in Western European culture. "Books aiming to elucidate a language specifically of flowers appeared in Paris not long after the end of the Napoleonic wars....Their background lay in the growth of the culture of flowers in France." (Goody, Jack THE CULTURE OF FLOWERS p. 234). The authors of these 19th century language of flowers books cited examples of flower signification found in antiquity and mythology, as well as in the sélam, but overlooked the few more recent works from modern Europe. "Au milieu du XVIIe siècle, un sieur Vulson de La Colombière, spécialisé dans la science de l'héraldique et sensible aux 'mystères' des couleurs, propose à son tour des "amusemens" de société praticables grâce à un dictionnaire de symboles de végétaux qu'il affirme être connus par tous." (Seguin, Jean-Pierre, "Les 'languges des fleurs' en France au XIX e siècle, et leurs archétypes aux XVIe et XVIIe siècles." in VIEUX PAPIER, p. 125.) But, says Seguin, in th … [Click Below for Full Description]

GONZALES DE MENDOZA, Juan.
Woodcut printer's devise on title, and decorative initials. 2 unn., 176 pp.; 222 pp., 14 unn. pp. index. 4to. Contemporary brown calf, t.e.g.. Old monastery library stamp on title. Antwerp, F. Frickaert, 1655. First Antwerp edition in Latin. Gonzalez de Mendoza (1545-1618) was sent by Philip II of Spain on an embassy to the Emperor of China. Combined with his own travel experiences notes are made by the missionaries Martin de Herrada and Hieronymus Marin on their voyages to China in 1575 and 1579. This is followed by an account of another missionary journey to China, derived mainly by Martin de Rada. The observations of the travellers refer not only to China, but to those countries through which they passed on their way, and since all expeditions to China at that time used Manila as a base, there is a lengthy account of the Philippines. Besides its interest as an Americanum with ref. to Peru on unn. p. 3, Mexico & Magellan on p. 5 in part 2, and Havana, Jamaica & Santo Domingo, the work contains also descriptions of Japan and other places. According to Pardo de Tavera, this was the first book printed in Europe to mention the then recently founded city of Manila. The work first appeared in Rome in 1585, printed in Spanish ("Historia de las cosas mas nobles...del gran reyno de la China"), and is the first printed history on China written by an European. But the first Madrid printing was not until 1586, and at this time an account was inserted of the Espejo expedition to New Mexico, and it is often erroneously assumed that all editions contain this mention, but as all the Ital … [Click Below for Full Description]
