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'.) [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Occulta, Alchemy, occult sciences - Digby, Kenelm:
Paris, Courbe et Moet, 1658.. 8° circa 16,8 x 10,8 cm. 195 pp., 1 f. 19th century full vellum with small ornaments on both covers. Caillet, I, 3124; Thorndike VII, 503f. Rare first edition of Digby's account of the so-called powder of sympathy, a remedy applied to the object causing a wound rather than to the wound itself, which then supposedly healed through sympathetic attraction. The book discusses numerous examples of sympathetic influence in nature, including the putrification of a grafted nose following the donor's death. Digby (1603-65) went to France in 1643, he "was a sometime privateer, politician, traveler, linguist, scientist and wealthy social climber. He received considerable publicity and fame by advocating his Powder of sympathy which is described in the present work. According to Digby, as a young man in Florence he was entrusted with the secret of the healing powder by a Carmelite friar who had learned its preparation and use in the Orient.". (Heirs of Hippocrates N° 483 4th ed.). - Nice, just minor browning or little spotting, in a pretty binding.

Reeve, John, & Lodowick Muggleton
London: Pr. by T.J. for Francis Cosinet 4to (18.9 cm, 7.4"). [2], 78, [2 (blank)] pp.. 1658 First edition of this anti-Baptist and anti-Quaker polemic. Reeve and Muggleton, self-proclaimed as the two witnesses mentioned in Rev. 11:3 ff., were the prophets and leaders of the Muggletonians, a small Christian sect that denied the doctrine of the Trinity, believed that God would no longer interfere in human affairs after the revelation of their founders, and condemned prayer and preaching. In this treatise the pair discuss the nature and destiny of the soul, the source of true apostolic authority, and the distinctions between true and false ministers. ESTC and OCLC locate only eight U.S. institutional holdings. The pagination here matches Wing but not ESTC, which calls for only 56 pages. Period-style calf, covers framed in blind double fillets, spine with gilt-ruled raised bands and gilt-stamped leather title-label. Pages age-toned and spotted; one leaf with outer and lower margins repaired some time ago.

PORTA, Giambattista della (1535-1615)
printed for Thomas Young, and Samuel Speed and are to be sold at the Three Pigeons, and at the Angel in St. Paul's Church-yard : 1658 : London : Folio: π2 C2 D-3I4, 212 leaves, pp. [8] 409 (pp. 385-392 misnumbered 381-388) [7], etched title on π1r by Richard Gaywood (Johnson p. 21 no. 10), printed title in red and black on π2r, Woodcut device on title, headpieces and initials and diagrams printed in the text. : The first English edition of one of the most famous books of renaissance science. It was Porta's first book and established his reputation.Chapter 17 on Optics is perhaps the most important, containing descriptions of a variety of optical devices. Porta was the first to give a coherent description of the camera obscura, and the first to report adding a concave lens to the aperture. He also juxtaposed concave and convex lenses and reports various experiments with them. He was one of the first to suggest the combination of lenses to form a telescope or microscope. Spectacles are also discussed. Another important chapter describes numerous pneumatic experiments. Porta based much of his information on magnetic phenomena on Peregrinus; William Gilbert was indebted to both Peregrinus and Porta in writing De magnete (1600).Although in its expanded form in the 1589 edition the work must be considered in the context of experimental science - and Thorndike (VI, 422) suggests that Bacon owed something to Porta's experimental method - Magia naturalis was in its origins a book of secrets and gives a wide range of practical information for tradesmen; and on plants and animal husb … [Click Below for Full Description]
