      HERBIPOLI (WURZBURG), JOANNIS GODEFRIDI SCHÖNWETTERI- IOBUS HERTZ, 1658 - Legatura coeva in piena pergamena rigida coeva, titolo manoscritto al dorso. Occhiello ; bella antiporta fifurata incisa su rame firmata da Froglich,1 carta binaca; 1 carta non numerata per introduzione; frontespizio; 18 pagine non numerate; 815 pagine numerate; 16 pagine non numerate di indici. All'interno, 21 tavole fuori testo incise su rame, 1 tavola sinottica ripiegata.                                      a supervisione dello scienziato Athanasius Kircher presso l'università di Würzburg. È noto a livello scientifico principalmente grazie ai suoi studi fisici concernenti i principi della meccanica; perfeziona poi le bacchette moltiplicatrici di Nepero, apportando un piccolo contributo a quello che può essere considerato un prototipo di macchina aritmetica. I suoi interessi scientifici vengono allora contaminati da una forte tendenza al misterico; da questa sperimentazione nasce "Physica Curiosa", il suo testo più celebre. L'opera in esame è la sola prima parte di un poderoso lavoro, e la sezione in esame riguarda l'ottica a cui Schott dedicò molti studi, in particolare alla camera oscura seguendo le orme di Keplero. Il lavoro di Keplero sulla camera oscura gli permise di risolvere uno dei più importanti enigmi sull'ottica del tempo: il funzionamento dell'occhio,  con l'immagine capovolta formata sulla retina. Egli correttamente confrontò la camera oscura con l'occhio partendo dall'idea che  Leonardo da Vinci aveva nell'identificare il ruolo della lente e la retina. Questo esperimento fu realizzato nel 1657 da  Kaspar Schott, con l'occhio di un bue. Come sappiamo, l'immagine sulla retina non è destinato ad essere 'visto' ma viene inviato attraverso il nervo ottico al cervello, dove viene tradotto. Esemplare con forti ossidazioni a molte pagine, dovute alla scadente qualità della carta. 0 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Pseudodoxia Epidemica: Or Enquiries Into Very Many Received Tenents and Commonly Presumed Truths, . . . Also Urn Burial, and Garden of Cyrus

      London: Edward Dod, 1658. Fourth Edition. Three-Quarter Leather. Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾. Book. [16] plus 468pp plus [16] Alph. Table plus 73 pp for Urn Burial and Garden of Cyrus essays. Modern 3/4 calf with marbled boards pristine. Tightly bound. Pages of Pseudodoxia have light soilage on some pages, and one page with small tear/chip in corner, but overall in fine condition. Some light dampstaining on bottom of final pages bound in (Garden of Cyrus) and a tiny wormhole affecting the top edge of some pages thereto, not affecting text. Otherwise, this is a fine copy overall. Includes a plate of four urns and another plate of geometric design before final essay. The key work, Pseudodoxia, is one of the precursors of the Enlightenment. Brown attempted to dispel superstitions, and under the influence of Bacon, apply reasoning, observation and objectivity to examine a host of old wive's tale, religious dogma, and the like.

        Animalium: Historia Sacra

      Amsterdam: Jan Jansson, 1658. 5th edition of a book very popular in its time, which includes natural histories of dragons, unicorns and many other seldom-seen beasties. 16mo in stiff vellum boards, probably original (though the endpapers are not), with leather stitching probably added later. Edges stained blue. The engraved title page depicts many creatures both familiar and strange. Good; the repair of the binding makes it quite stiff, broken at title page (1cm portion of title page attached to fep). Spot stains on rear board; some stains on outer pages but mostly very clean. The title page bears an interesting history of owners: at the bottom is written "Ad libros Johannis Mulleri pertice", probably the 1st owner; then there is "J.D. Mauser ex patr. libr. 1742"; also "Plagwitz - Leipzig 1880". All are written quite small. The type is very small here but well printed, by a publisher known for some early editions of the Mercator Atlas. 631 pp. + indices..

        The History of the Evangelical Churches of the Valleys of Piemont. Containing a most exact Geographical Description of the Place, and a faithfull Account of the Doctrine, Life, and Persecutions of the Ancient Inhabitants. Together, with a most naked and punctual Relation of the late Bloudy Massacre, 1655. And a Narrative of all the following Transactions, to the Year of Our Lord 1658. All which are justified, partly by divers Ancient Manuscripts written many hundred Years before Calvin or Luther, and partly by other most Authentick Attestations. The true Originals of the greatest part whereof, are to be seen in their proper Languages by all the curious, in the Publick Library of the famous University of Cambridge. Collected and compliled with much pains and industry, By Samuel Morland, Esq. During his abode in Geneva, in quality of His Highness Commissioner Extraordinary for the Affairs of the said Valleys and particulary for the Distribution of the Collected Moneys, among the remnant of those poor distressed People.

      London, Henry Hills, for Adoniram Byfield 1658. (68) 709 p. Rebound half Leather with ribbed back and richly decorated with stamps, Folio (with multiple engravings in the text, without the map and portrait of the author. Samuel Morland 1625-1695, was a diplomatist, mathematician and inventor. In 1655 Morland was sent by Oliver Cromwell on a mission to Italy to protest at actions taken against the Waldensians by the Duke of Savoy. During his residence in Geneva, Morland prepared minutes, and provured records, vouchers and attestations from which he might compile a correct history of the Waldenses. In 1656 Morland arrived at Whitehall, and shortly afterwards received the thanks of a select committee appointed by Cromwell to inquire into his proceedings. Two years later he published this work, 'The History of the Evangelical Churches of the Valleys of Piemont &c.' This volume, which was illustrated with sensational prints of the supposed sufferings of the Waldenses, 'operated like Fox's Book of Martyrs'.).

Enthält: Leo Armenius - Catharina von Georgien - Carolus Stuardus - Beständige Mutter - Cardenio und Celinde - Majuma - Kirchhoffs-Gedanken - Oden - Thränen über das Leiden Jesu Christi - Sonnette (vier Bücher) - Absurda Comica Oder Herr Peter Squentz, Schimpff-Spiel. - Genau wie im Exemplar von Faber du Faur sind hier (vor den Peter Squentz) noch eingebunden: "Papinianus" (mit Kupfertitel und 7 Kupfer-Tafeln) und "Verlibtes Gespenste" - andere Exemplare haben statt dieser beiden Titel auch 79 Seiten Epigrammata eingebunden. Das Stück Peter Squentz, hier mit Noten, ist ein wichtiges frühes Beispiel für die Rezeption von Shakespeare in Deutschland. "The English influence is beyond question, and is confirmed by the figure of the Pickelhäring. The English Comedians presumably performed the Midsummer Night's Dream in Germany... Gryphius' text often departs very far from the original, but some passages read almost like a translation..." (Faber d.

        D. Justiniani, Sacratissimi Principis, Institutionum, sive Elementorum, libri quatuor, Notis perpetuis multo, quam hucusque, diligentius illustrati, Curo & studo Arnoldi Vinnii I. C. Editio postrema ab Auctore recognita.

      Amstelaedami Ex Officina Elzdeviriana 1658 - 12mo, 133 x 71 mm.s, pp. [xxiv], 643 [644 - 646 blank], with fine additional engraved title-page, with the Elzevir device as vignette on the printed title-page, contemporary red morocco, gilt-ruled border on each cover, spine richly gilt in compartments, all edges gilt; slight wear to base of spine, but generally a very good and attractive copy, with two early, probably contemporary hand-written ownership labels on the front paste-down end-paper: "Jullienne" and "J. B. Q. Malaclie." It would be pleasant to think that the first label and autograph is that of the art collector Jean de Jullienne (1686 - 1766). Arnoldus Vinnius (1588 - 1657) was one of the leading jurists of Europe in the 17th century, and this commentary on Justinian is his most important work. His commentary on Justinian, with the text, was first published in 1642, and this was the first edition to be published after his death. In his autobiography, My Own Life, David Hume noted that his "Family [had] a Notion that the Law was a proper Profession for me: But I found an unsurmountable Aversion to every thing but the Pursuits of Philosophy and general Learning; and while they fancyed that I was poring over Voet and Vinnius, Cicero and Virgil were the Authors which I was secretly devouring."

William Style was one of the law reporters forced to cease publishing his law reports in Law French and he voices his criticism in the preface thus: "I have made these reports speak English, not that I believe they will be thereby more generally useful, for I have been always and yet am of opinion, that that part of the common law which is in English hath only occasioned the making of unquiet spirits contentiously knowing, and more apt to offend others than to defend themselves; but I have done it in obedience to authority, and to stop the mouths of such of this English age, who, though they be confessedly different in their minds and judgment, as the builders of Babel were in their language, yet do think it vain, if not impious, to speak or understand more than their own mother tongue."

It is the dullest and longest of the four, but is surpassed by the Smiglesius of the same year, in which the same publisher participated. It was time for the Merry Monarch to supervene’ (Madan).If Isendoorn was dumped on Oxford, Oxford seems to have returned the compliment, since not many copies are recorded in ESTC, only one of them in Oxford itself (3 others in the UK, 2 in North America).

Leder am Rücken teils professionell ausgebessert. Gold minimal abgeplatzt und mit minimalen Wurmlöchern. Im Ganzen jedoch sehr ordentliches Exemplar. Selten! La Mère Isabelle des Anges (1565-1644) ist eine von sechs Karmeliterinnen, die 1604 von Spanien nach Paris kam und dort an der Verbreitung karmelitischer Klöster mitwirkte. Der Karmeliterorden (Ordo Fratrum Beatae Mariae Virginis de Monte Carmelo) ist nach dem im hl. Land liegenden Gebirgszug Karmel benannt. Dort ließen sich nach der Eroberung Palästinas durch die Kreuzfahrer Eremiten nieder, welche die Traditionen des frühchr. Mönchstums, der weltabgewandten Askese bzw. strengster Armut pflegten. Die Tradition führt den Karmeliterorden auf den Propheten Elias zurück, der neunhundert Jahre vor Christus lebte und die Erscheinung der Maria in einer Wolke erblickte. Der entscheidene Impuls zu dem großen Aufblühen eines weibl. Ordenszweiges erfolgte erst in der 2. Hälfte des 16. Jahrhunderts in Spanien im Zusammenhang mit der von Teresa v. Avila und Johannes vom Kreuz initiierten und von Kg. Philipp II, geförderten Reformbewegung. Der Orden nimmt in Anspruch, gegründet worden zu sein, um die Muttergottes zu verehren. Die heilige Teresa von Avila sagt deutlich, daß das Verlangen der Karmeliter dahin geht, "allein mit dem Alleinigen zu sein". Gott offenbart sich dem Herzen in Einsamkeit und daher arbeitet jede Nonne so viel wie möglich allein ihrer Zelle. Sprache: Französisch Kanten etwas berieben und bestossen.

Spine restored at head and tail, corners worn, title leaf with small tear in gutter costing one letter and small part of typographic frame, fore edge of same leaf a little frayed, a little light spotting, still a good copy. Second edition in English, same year as the first, a translation of a lecture delivered to a congress of French virtuosi, giving Digby's complex mechanical explanation of the "sympathetic powder", a Paracelsian weapon-salve which was applied to the weapon that inflicted the wound, rather than to the patient. Exiled in Paris after the English civil war, Digby studied chemistry under the Scottish royal physician, William Davidson. He had "cured his friend James Howell, then the duke of Buckingham's secretary, of a sword-cut in the hand by dissolving some powdered vitriol crystals in water and plunging into the mixture a cloth stained with blood from the wound. The pain in Howell's hand, some yards away, immediately ceased … Many were convinced by Digby's evidence, including Joseph Glanvill, later a Royal Society fellow, and Nathaniel Highmore, a distinguished anatomist and friend of William Harvey. In fact the cure lay in washing and bandaging the wound" (ODNB).

A fine example, very clean and fresh, only slightly foxed. Rare first edition, issue with L. D. P. (Louis de Poincy, to whom authorship has been attributed) in the dedicatory epistle, possibly the rarest issue. In fact, the authorship has been long debated, according to Sabin, ¿Much of the material may have been collected by De Poincy, but the principal or rather sole compiler of the work appears to have been Charles de Rochefort¿; today the consensus is that it was written by Rochefort, the Dutch edition of 1662 so confirms it. A truly remarkable work on the islands of the Caribbean, arguably intended as an emigrant guide; the first part relates mainly and contains extensive details on the region´s natural history, the second part deals with the manners, customs, trade, religion, organization and administration of the Caribs. The work finishes with a vocabulary of the Carib language by Father Raymond Breton. The work is profusely and handsomely illustrated with 43 copper-plates of varying sizes, a full page portrait of Jacques Amproux and a splendid engraved title page. Brunet III, 206. Sabin, 72314.

        FOUR CONTINENTS] Europa delineata et recens edita; Asiæ nova delineata; Africæ accurata tabula; Nova et accuratissima totius Americæ descriptio

      Visscher, [Amsterdam 1658 - A set of the four continental maps from the Golden Age of Dutch cartography The Dutch were especially well equipped for the role they played in the European discovery and colonization of the wider world. Unencumbered by any desire to impose their religious or political beliefs, they simply wanted to trade commodities and profit thereby. The ascendancy of the Dutch in global trade lasted only as long as they could withstand the English and French, who, with much larger populations, ultimately overwhelmed them, but for a considerable portion of the 17th century, the Dutch were supreme. The outlines of the world the Dutch merchantmen discovered was conveyed to the rest of Europe (as Spain and Portugal did not) in beautifully engraved and coloured maps that resonated with authority. In these four maps by Visscher, with only a few exceptions (Hokkaido, Australia, New Zealand and the mythical Anian), the continents are delineated and defined in a remarkably accurate way. This was the accumulation of the day to day observations of sea captain / tradesmen, who at this time gave the world the first comprehensive sea charts. The Dutch were tradesmen and seafarers, not conquerors or settlers, so the fundamental advancement in geographical knowledge was in coastlines and rivers, as if in preparation for the great movements of peoples to come. The interiors derive from other, less reliable sources, some of them ancient as the Ptolemaic interior of Africa. The four maps form a balanced composition and an aesthetically appealing portrait of the newly discovered World. Visscher's cartouches are light, optimistic and exuberant, happily implying a bright future. Each of the four maps bears a dedicatory cartouche to a prominent Dutch statesman and illustrates his coat of arms, usually surrounded by gods, goddesses and angels. Betz, 87; Norwich 55; Burden, 332. Four hand-coloured copper engraved maps.

Ulm: Jonas Saur, 1627. 2 parts in one volume, folio (338 x 224mm). second issue of first 2 quires, engraved frontispiece by Georg Celer, large folding engraved map, woodcut diagrams in text, eighteenth-century vellum, early manuscript annotations, calculations and diagrams in margins, without the 4 inserted leaves ("Sportula genethliacis"), map supplied from another copy and washed, several printed marginal notes slightly shaved, binding slightly wormed on both covers. FIRST EDITION. These tables of planetary motion were completed by Kepler in 1601, at the request of Tycho Brahe shortly before his death. They gave far more accurate positions than those in previous tables. Casper identified three issues of the first two quires of this first edition: the present copy contains the second issue of both quires. A four-leaf "Sportula genethliacis missa de Tabularum Rudolphi usu in computationibus astrologicis" was added ti sine cioues at the end of the first part; it is not present in this copy. This rare and striking map shows a dramatic rendering of the two-headed eagle of the Holy Roman Empire. The map was prepared at the request of Eckebrecht's friend Johann Kepler. The map's arrangement of one bifurcated hemisphere on either side of a complete hemisphere faclitates the calculation of longitude using Kepler's tables. "The design harks back to Braun's inspiring wall map of 1574 which is also headed by the imperial double-headed eagle and has the continents in bifurcated form" (Shirley). While the map is dated 1630, and in cartographical terms is of that period, it could not have been published until years later, as it bears a dedication to Emperor Leopold who ascended the throne in 1658. No earlier state is recorded. REFERENCES: Shirley 335; Caspar 79; Houzeau & Lancaster 12754; Norman 1208; Zinner 5063. First Edition. Book.

      Jan Jansson, Amsterdam 1658 - 5th edition of a book very popular in its time, which includes natural histories of dragons, unicorns and many other seldom-seen beasties. 16mo in stiff vellum boards, probably original (though the endpapers are not), with leather stitching probably added later. Edges stained blue. The engraved title page depicts many creatures both familiar and strange. Good; the repair of the binding makes it quite stiff, broken at title page (1cm portion of title page attached to fep). Spot stains on rear board; some stains on outer pages but mostly very clean. The title page bears an interesting history of owners: at the bottom is written "Ad libros Johannis Mulleri pertice", probably the 1st owner; then there is "J.D. Mauser ex patr. libr. 1742"; also "Plagwitz - Leipzig 1880". All are written quite small. The type is very small here but well printed, by a publisher known for some early editions of the Mercator Atlas. 631 pp. + indices.
