A very good tight copy of the scarce English first edition. First published in Latin in Antwerp in 1559 in two books, it was reissued in 1564 enlarged to 4 books. It was enormously popular on the continent of Europe translated into Italian in 1560 and into French and German in 1567 and 1575. Although it continued to be reissued in Latin well into the 17th century it was not translated into English until 1658. Levinus Lemnius or Lemmens (1505-1568) was born at Zirickzee in the province of Zeeland in the Netherlands. At first he studied theology, then medicine under the famous anatomist Vesalius. He graduated at Padua in 1525 and then practised medicine successfully in his native town. He was a friend of Dodoens and Conrad Gesner. This work was his most famous and important, a Book of Secrets with large sections on medical matters and natural history: procreation and birth, medicinal plants, influence of the moon on plant growth, epilepsy, sleepwalkers, sleeping with an open mouth, the benefits of wine drinking, alcoholism, healing power of gemstones. In addition he is very interested in the occult and extraordinary natural phenomena, miraculous happenings, monsters and monstrous births. The final section, the Exhortation, beginning on page 315 deals with religious and moral topics.

"With the spectacle close at hand of the great church slowly deteriorating from years of maltreatment and sacrilegious use, Dugdale rapidly compiled The History of St Paul's Cathedral, which was published in 1658. Not only did this book print the surviving documentary records of the cathedral, it also preserved the appearance of the building. Its Norman and Gothic details and the alterations made by Inigo Jones in the 1630s were recorded in extensive plates, once again prepared by Hollar, several of them based on drawings made by William Sedgwick in 1641. With the destruction of the cathedral in the great fire of 1666 Dugdale's book became the lasting memorial of old St Paul's." - DNB

        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."

See A Bibliography of English Conjuring 1581-1876 by Raymond Toole Stott page 191. "...In Italy, in the latter half of the sixteenth century, came a striking example of the difficulties which science still encountered even after the Renaissance had undermined the old beliefs. At that time John Baptist Porta was conducting his investigations, and, despite a considerable mixture of pseudo-science, they were fruitful. His researches in optics gave the world the camera obscura, and possibly the telescope; in chemistry he seems to have been the first to show how to reduce the metallic oxides, and thus to have laid the foundation of several important industries. He did much to change natural philosophy to a vigorous open science. The society founded by him for physical research, called themselves Otiosi (i.e., Men of Leisure) and made it a condition of membership that each man must have contributed a new discovery or fact in natural science. Their Accademia Secretorum Naturae was soon suspect, from its name and deeds, of dabbling in the occult. Della Porta was denounced to Pope Paul V and called to Rome to explain the reports of witches' salves and necromantic arts. Happily justifying his devout search for truth and his campaign against charlatans, he returned cautioned but unblemished and was able, later in life, to help establish and become Vice-President of the Academy of the Lynxes (its name symbolised the struggle of scientific truth against ignorance), of which Prince Federico Cesi was President and Galileo the most illustrious member". Notes taken from encyclopaedia. The date on the title page has a dropped 5 which at first glance looks like a 9, but is without doubt a 5. The name of the printer confirms this, as the printer changes to John Wright in the 1669 edition. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE. POSTAGE AT COST.

George Saintsbury referred to this work as "the longest piece, perhaps, of absolutely sublime rhetoric to be found in the prose literature of the world." Virginia Woolf, probably with the fifth chapter in mind, commented, "His immense egotism has paved the way for all psychological novelists, autobiographers, confession-mongers, and dealers in the curious shades of our private life. He it was who first turned from the contacts of man with man, to their lonely life within." Wing B5154; Keynes 93. The errata leaf is missing from many copies.

Poggendorff I, 849 - Zweiter Band aus der ersten Gesamtausgabe. Gassendi (1592-165) war eine der zentralen Gestalten der Descartes-Zeit. Für die Geschichte der Philosophie hat er nicht nur die Bedeutung als empiristischer und skeptischer Kritiker der "Meditationen", sondern vor allem als Epikur-Rezeptor. Die Physik wird bei ihm zu einem autonomen Bereich, der mit der Metaphysik nicht mehr innerlich verbunden ist. (vgl. Schischkoff, Monogr. zur philsoph. Forschung)

October 1655. From the evidence of the printer's ornaments used in this last work which also appear in The Practice of Physick it seems that it was printed by Peter Cole, but we have been unable to ascertain in what form it may have been issued previously. Despite the erratic nature of the collation, this work is complete. Lacun¾ in both signatures and pagination are always justified by catchwords and the continuity of the text.

        Traitté de l'aiman. Divisé en deux parties. La prémiére contient les expériences; & la seconde les raisons que l'on en peut rendre. Par M. D***.Amsterdam: chez Henry Wetstein, 1687.

      First edition of this beautifully illustrated treatise on the magnet and its uses, dealing with the invention of the compass, magnetic mountains in America, declination and the orientation of the compass-needle in a magnetic field. The plates are etchings by Adriaan Schoonebeek (1658-1705), the pupil of Romeyn de Hooghe and a prolific book-illustrator. They recall Sébastien Le Clerc's <i>Pratique de la geometrie</i> (Paris, 1669), where geometrical diagrams float above fanciful landscapes. In D'Alencé's plates, however, though most of the landscapes and rustic scenes seem unrelated to the scientific content, one or two provide a commentary. For example, fig. 18, illustrated by Hofer, shows a violent explosion with bodies flying in all directions, which Hofer suggests illustrates the magnet's potential.<br/><br/> The finely engraved frontispiece is described by Park Benjamin, in his <i>Intellectual Rise in Electricity</i> (London, 1895), as follows. "The lodestone, disposed in a bowl after the mode suggested by Neckam and Peregrinus, and marked with a longitudinal directing line, appears floating in front of the vessel, which the mariner, holding a rudder in one hand and a compass in the other, is about to board. The goddess, who appears to be advising him, points to the Great Bear, represented by the actual animal in the heavens, with the Pole Star situated at its tail, and also to a compass and a dipping needle, while in her left hand she has a sounding line. The idea evidently intended is that the divinity is advising the sailor to avail himself of all these means of guidance. There is also shown on the left a suspended armed lodestone, supporting at one pole a series of keys, and at the other a number of iron plates "this being possibly designed to indicate in some way the strength and consequent trustworthiness of the magnet." <br/><br/> Very little seems to be known regarding Joachim D' Alence (1640-1707); even his name is variously given as Dalance, Dalence, Dalence, etc., by different authorities. He is known almost solely because of the present work and his <i>Traittez des barometres, thermometres, et notiometres, au hygrometers</i> (Amsterdam, 1688), a companion volume also charmingly illustrated by Schoonebeck and important because it contains the first suggestion of the use of two fixed temperatures in the graduation of thermometers. <br/><br/> Second and third editions appeared in 1691 and 1712, and a German translation in 1690. <br/><br/> Brunet 5, 918; Gartrell 10; Wheeler Gift 200; Hofer, <i>Baroque Book Illustration</i> 142.. 12mo (154 x 88 mm), pp. [xx], 140, [8] with 33 plates by A.

"Im Jahre 1658 erschien eine Schrift, "Heutelia" betitelt (anagrammatisch gebildet aus "Helvetia"), die Beschreibung einer Schweizerreise, in welcher die staatlichen und gesellschaftlichen Zustände einzelner Kantone von schroff aristokratischem Standpunkt aus blossgelegt werden. Zur Sprache kommt die feile Justiz, die Aemtersucht, die Habgier und Bestechlichkeit der Landvögte., die geistige Trägheit und Versumpfung der Bürger, die schlechte Jugenderziehung, die unduldsame, dogmensüchtige Geistlichkeit beider Konfessionen, der Aberglaube, die Hexenprozesse." (Bächtold) "Ein pfälzischer Edelmann und ein württembergischer Rechtsgelehrter, beide reformiert, fliehen vor dem Dreissig-jährigen Krieg in die Schweiz und machen von Ort zu Ort ihre gepfefferten Glossen. Der Ton ist zügellos satirisch, bisweilen zynisch, namentlich wenn die Stellung der Frau gestreift wird. Lob und Tadel werden nach Orten verteilt. Zürich kommt gut weg. Gar von Bern entwerfen sie ein breites, schonungsloses Sittengemälde, das die Stadt in Aufruhr brachte. Ein Regierungsausschuss wurde eingesetzt, das Büchlein zu unterdrücken, umsonst. Es gehörte zu den boshaften Erzeugnissen, über die man sich mit Vergnügen ärgert" (Feller/Bonjour). Die im beliebten Stil der damaligen Sprachmengerei abgefassten Schrift - auf zehn deutsche Worte kommt gewöhnlich ein lateinisches - bietet mehr als andere Quellen Einblick in das eidgenössische Leben der Zeit. "Wer war der Verfasser? Schon im 17. Jh. hielt man Jakob von Graviseth dafür, der als bernischer Landvogt in Oron amtete. Heute neigt man dazu, die "Heutelia" dem in Payerne geborenen Hans Franz Veiras zuzuschreiben, einem Diplomaten in pfälzischen Diensten.". - Die ersten drei Blätter im Rand knapp beschnitten.

        NATURAL MAGICK: A Neapolitane: in Twenty Books

      London: For Thomas Young and Samuel Speed, 1658. First English language edition of Porta&#39;s Magiae naturalis libri viginti, originially published in 1558. Full contemporary speckled calf, stamped in blind with gilt faintly visible on the spine and spine label split. An honest, unsophisticated copy if somewhat worn and a little tired, complete with the engraved title by R. Gaywood and the printed title in red and black. Folio (pages 261 x 173 mm), collating: [4 blanks], [engraved title], [printed title], [4 Reader&#39;s Preface], 1-128, 131, 130-384, 381-388, 393-409, [1 blank], [6 Table of Contents], [4 blanks]; complete. This translation is based on the expanded 1589 edition of Porta&#39;s "Magiae naturalis." & & It is an uncritical compilation of the fantastical and the empirical, discussing subjects such as demonology, magnetism, alchemical secrets, the beautification of women and the camera obscura. "Porta was the first to add a concave lens to the aperture of the camera obscura, and his comparison of the camera lens to the pupil of the eye provided an easily understood demonstration that the source of visual images lay outside the eye, thus ending a centuries-old controversy." (Norman 1726) A wonderful, early pseudo-scientific work offering a small glimpse into the learning of the time.

        Imperii Sinarum nova descriptio. Auctore. Joh van Loon

      [Amsterdam: Jansson, circa 1658]. Hand-coloured copper engraved map. Extensively and expertly restored where image had been cut. 19 3/4 x 23 1/2 inches. A good copy of this rare early map of China. This attractive and important map was first published in Jansson&#39;s Atlas Novus in 1658, but remains relatively rare as it appeared in only a few editions of the atlas. It was re-issued from the 1690s onwards by Valk & Schenk who added their imprint to the plate just under the sea-battle between the two western ships off the coast of Hainan. The map was drawn by cartographer Jan van Loon who managed to improve on earlier maps with greater accuracy and more detail: in particular, the coast around Hong Kong, Macau and Guangzhou is very carefully mapped. The two charming vignettes are particularly attractive: merchants and scholars support the title cartouche, whilst putti and winged mer-children frolic around the scale panel. Jan van Loon was a mathematician, astronomer and chart maker, who worked on the Pilot Books for Jansson and published two sea atlases on his own. Van der Krogt 8410:1C

        TWO TREATISES: IN THE ONE OF WHICH THE NATURE OF BODIES; IN THE OTHER, THE NATURE OF MANS SOUL IS LOOKED INTO: IN WAY OF DISCOVERY OF THE IMMORTALITY OF REASONABLE SOULS

      London: Printed for John Williams ..., 1658 & 1657.. [48],312,301-429,[1],[10],136,139-143,[1]pp. Small quarto (signed in 8s). Modern three quarter calf and marbled boards. Bound without terminal blank, signature AA misfolded altering sequence (but complete). Scattered spotting and occasional marginal sums and annotations, marginal tanning early and late, verso of terminal leaf with 1731 ownership inscription and sums, closed edge tear in top edge of O7, small spot obscuring a few words on BB2r, a few creases at corners, last several leaves a bit darkened and frayed at extreme margins, but generally a sound copy, neatly bound. Second London edition, preceded by the 1644 Paris printing in folio, and the 1645 London edition. Digby&#39;s major published work in the field of speculative natural philosophy. The second Treatise is equipped with its own title-leaf, dated 1657, but the register is contiguous."The work is noteworthy on several counts: it contains the first fully developed atomistic system of the seventeenth century, the first important defense in English of Harvey&#39;s theory of the circulation, important discussions of reflex action and embryological development, an account of the first recorded patch text for allergy, the fullest early account in English of teaching the deaf to lip-read, and material on behavioral conditioning that anticipates the work of Pavlov. Digby&#39;s introduction of Gassendian and Cartesian atomism into England provided Boyle and Newton with the foundation for their achievements in chemistry and physics" - Norman (in reference to the first edition). ESTC R15511. WING D1450. NORMAN LIBRARY 639 (1644 EDITION).

        Histoire naturelle et morale des Iles Antilles de l'Amerique

      First edition, a remarkable early Huguenot emigration guide. 1658. Rotterdam. Arnout Leers. In 4to (230 mm x 165 mm). 2 [blank] + 8 ff. [including engraved title] + 527 + 6 ff. + 2 [blank] + 44 plates, many of which full page. Contemporary vellum over boards, head with upper hinge starting with minor loss of vellum, else very good. 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.

      London, printed by Jo. Streater, and sold by Humphrey Moseley, John Sweeting, John Clark, and George Sawbridge, 1658.. In four books. Learnedly and moderately treating of generation, and the parts thereof; the soul, and its immortality; of plants and living creatures; of diseases, their symptoms and cures, and many other rarities not treated of by any author extant; ... Whereunto is added one book containing philosophical and prudential rules how man shall become excellent in all conditions, whether high or low, and lead his life with health of body and mind. Fit for the use of those that practise physick, and all others that desire to search into the hidden secrets of nature, for increase of knowledge. FIRST ENGLISH EDITION 1658. Small folio in fours, 280 x 185 mm, 11 x 7¼ inches, title page printed red and black, pages (16), 398, lacking final blank leaf, bound in full contemporary calf, blind rules to covers, raised bands and blind rules to spine, later gilt lettered morocco label and endpapers. Covers slightly stained and slightly worn at corners, hinges rubbed and a little tender, tiny chip to leather at top of upper hinge, old inscription at foot of original front endpaper, title page slightly dusty, small crease to top corner of first 5 leaves, as in other copies A4 (last leaf of Preface) is a cancel and slightly uneven at fore-edge, small closed tear to 1 lower corner, repaired, not affecting text, 1 upper outer corner torn off, no loss of text, tip of another corner missing, a few small rusty marks, mainly to margins, no loss of legibility. A very good tight copy of the scarce English first edition. First published in Latin in Antwerp in 1559 in two books, it was reissued in 1564 enlarged to 4 books. It was enormously popular on the continent of Europe translated into Italian in 1560 and into French and German in 1567 and 1575. Although it continued to be reissued in Latin well into the 17th century it was not translated into English until 1658. Levinus Lemnius or Lemmens (1505-1568) was born at Zirickzee in the province of Zeeland in the Netherlands. At first he studied theology, then medicine under the famous anatomist Vesalius. He graduated at Padua in 1525 and then practised medicine successfully in his native town. He was a friend of Dodoens and Conrad Gesner. This work was his most famous and important, a Book of Secrets with large sections on medical matters and natural history: procreation and birth, medicinal plants, influence of the moon on plant growth, epilepsy, sleepwalkers, sleeping with an open mouth, the benefits of wine drinking, alcoholism, healing power of gemstones. In addition he is very interested in the occult and extraordinary natural phenomena, miraculous happenings, monsters and monstrous births. The final section, the Exhortation, beginning on page 315 deals with religious and moral topics. Ferguson, Bibliotheca Chemica, Volume II, page 23; Ferguson, Books of Secrets, Index, page 22; Krivatsy, 17th Century Books in the National Library of Medicine, page 701, No. 6873; Wellcome Library, Volume III, p. 489.
