PARACELSUS, [Theophrastus Philippus Aureolus Bombastus von Hohenheim].
Geneva: Sumptibus Joan. Antonii, & Samuelis De Tournes. 1658. First Tournes edition. A fine copy, in contemporary vellum and with the often missing portrait, of "the best and most complete edition of Paracelsus' collected works" (Neville). ❧Dibner, Heralds of Science, no. 124. "According to Sudhoff, bibliographer of Paracelsus' works, this compendium of the works of Paracelsus, edited by Friedrich Bitiskius, is the most complete of the Latin collected editions. It contains virtually all of Paracelsus' medical and philosophical writings, as well as Tintoretto's beautiful portrait of Paracelsus, which is often missing" (Heirs of Hippocrates no. 215). "Philippus Aureolus Theophratus Bobastus von Hohenheim, also known as Paracelsus, remains one of the most controversial and remarkable personalities of the Renaissance. He has been described as a quack, a magician, and astrologer, and alchemist, as well as a brilliant physician, prophet, and genius. Sir William Osler called him the 'Luther of medicine,' and Fielding Garrison lauded him as 'the most original thinker of the sixteenth century.' He was perhaps all of these ... "His introduction of a new concept of disease, based on the idea that each disease is due to a specific external cause, [was] to replace the ancient notion of disease as an internal idiosyncratic imbalance of humors. Paracelsus's new idea of disease led him to new modes of therapy, using specific agents (often chemically derived) to battle against specific diseases. His followers founded the school of iatrochemistry, which flourished in Europe over the next cen … [Click Below for Full Description]

Medico personale di Carlo IX e di Enrico III di Francia, docente al Collège de France, Louis Duret (Bâgé-la-Ville, 1527- 1586) fu celebre fisico e medico del suo tempo. La profonda conoscenza delle lingue classiche lo portò ad approfondire le teorie di Ippocrate (Coo, 460 circa - 377 a.c.), considerato il padre della medicina, che era uso, sembra, citare a memoria, tanto da essere soprannominato l'Ippocrate di Francia. Nel presente testo, pubblicato la prima volta a Parigi nel 1588 grazie alle cure del figlio di Duret, Jean, egli segue i percorsi del celebre medico, analizzando dettagliatamente le fonti greche, e concentrandosi principalmente sulle sue teorie delle diagnosi. > Brunet, II, 916, e Graesse, III, 282 citano l'edizione 1588. 1850 gr.

Passages curieux et anecdotes, telle cette mise en garde p.176 sur la possession des jeunes filles que prélève et traduit Sandras dans les Fredaines du diable (1797): « Brognolo prouve invinciblement combien il est dangereux de poursuivre le Diable dans cette cachette [ndlr: les jeunes femmes].

WICQUEFORT, A. DE.)
A Paris, Chez Augustin Courbé, 1658. (16), 511 (misnumbered 519), (1) pp. 4to. Later full speckled calf, spine richly gilt with raised bands, gilt fillet on sides, marbled edges, small tear in lower front joint. BMSTC, French Books 1601-1700, B.33. First edition, dedicated to the French chancellor Séguier. Deals with the difficult electoral process in the Holy Roman Empire. During the interregnum between the death of Ferdinand III (1657) and the succession in 1658 by his son Leopold (who was king of Bohemia and Hongaria, but not Roman king) the author attempted to inform a French audiance by presenting a detailed history of and the principles by which the electoral process of the German emperor took place, explaining that the election of Holy Roman Emperor is the monopoly of seven princes of the Holy Empire, four of which are catholic and three of which are protestant. Each of these and their respective family are treated in this work outlining the history of each and with an explanation of their rights.Abraham de Wicquefort was born in Amsterdam in 1598, studied in Paris and became the official representative of the Margrave of Brandenbourg in Paris until he fell in disgrace with Mazarin who had him thrown into the Bastille in the year of publication of the present volume. - Leaf Xxiij with a tear in the outer blank margin.

Glazemaker, 1619/20-1682, was a professional translator and glazier (Glazemaker means glazier). If there were no texts to translate, Glazemaker worked as a glazier in the firm of his stepfather. He started his career translating popular literature, later he specialized in philosophy. He translated e.g. Descartes and Spinoza for the Dutch market. He mainly translated from Latin and French. His knowledge of Greek seems to have been insufficient to translate properly. So he must have used also Latin and French examples for his Greek authors.

CESARINI, Virginio
Angelo Bernabò, 1658. In -4°, due parti in un volume, antiporta figurata incisa, due tavole incise a piena pagina di cui una con ritratto dell'autore. Testo corredato da centinaia di vignette, testatine, iniziali e finalini istoriati calcografici; diverse illustrazioni incise (I) legato con "Poesie liriche toscane", inc. di Giovanni Battista Bonacina, Etienne Picart su disegni di Gregorio Tomasini; legatura in piena pergamena coeva semirigida, fioriture e lievi macchie di umidità e bruniture su alcune carte (in particolare pp. 89-92), segni di restauro su alcune carte. Molto raro, questo libro è uno degli esempi più impressionanti della produzione barocca italiana: sconosciuto ai compilatori della Bibliografia Romana: Boffito nomina il primo frontespizio inciso come registrato da Le Blanc, ma aggiunge che per loro un esemplare sarebbe stato introvabile. Prima edizione delle due opere, rilegate assieme e pubblicate postume, probabilmente è un omaggio a Cesarini stampato in tiratura limitata. L'autore è un cugino di Federico Cesi, studioso di legge e filosofia e appassionato di astronomia e matematica. Amico di Galileo e membro dell'Accademia dei Lincei, sollecitò Galileo a scrivere Il Sggiatore. I versi qui contenuti sono dedicati ciascuno a personaggi illustri dell'epoca (molti di loro membri dell'Accademia). Rossetti 1824 Very rare, this is one of the most impressive examples of Italian baroque book production: It was not known to the compilers of the Bibliografia Romana: Boffito mentions the first engraved title page as registered by Le Blanc, but it adds "We couldn't fin … [Click Below for Full Description]

STRADA, Famiano
1658 Famiano Strada Rhetoric Jesuit Mission Classical Latin Eloquentia Bipartia “The most significant influence on the history of rhetoric!” In the 17th-century, the Jesuit mission was to teach and convert protestants to Catholicism through Jesuitism. This method of education became much more prominent, however, than just spiritual conversion. Jesuit colleges and universities were expanding all over Europe where students were trained in eloquence for rhetoric which was primarily based on Cicero and other important classical rhetoricians. Because of the quickly expanding student population, textbooks on rhetoric were in high demand. Famiano Strada, a Jesuit professor of rhetoric, is chiefly remembered for his famous account of the Dutch War. He composed ‘Eloquentia Bipartia’ to help teach rhetoric to Jesuits; however, he incorporated references to his ‘De Bello Belgico’ in the second part of this lesser-known book. According to Conley, ‘Eloquentia Bipartia’ is “the most significant influence on the history of rhetoric in the 17th-century that was exercised by the Society of Jesus, the Jesuits.” Item number: #2622 Price: $499 STRADA, Famiano R.P.

Robinson, 1658, 1658, 1662. 3 books bound as one volume. 6th edition and very early printing of "Advice to a Son", First edition of "Advice the Second Part" and third edition of the collection of discourses. 12mo, full near contemporary calf, the spine gilt tooled in three compartments between gilt ruled bands, one compartment with a brown morocco label gilt lettered and decorated. [A1-4], 188, [8]; [xi], 189, [3]; [iv], 194. Internally very well preserved, quite crisp and fresh with only minor and less than expected evidence of age, the binding without restoration and with some age-wear, still a solid copy. SCARCE WORKS BY ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR WRITERS OF HIS DAY, including his most famous, ADVICE TO A SON. His "Advice" was one of the best known works at the time of its initial publication in 1656 but was also extremely controversial. The first edition was published anonymously, Osborn did not attach his name to the work till 1658. In it he argues against the Monarchy, Marriage, Women and libraries. After this 1658 publication the book was suppressed by the Vice Chancellor and after the Restoration it was brought before the House of Lords as treasonous. The "Advice" is broken down into five major categories; Studies, Love and Marriage, Travel, Government, and Religion. The second part was even more combustible, but did not meet with the same popularity. The third book included here contains a very early English discourse on Machiavelli, Osborn's well researched work on the Turkish Government and several other short discourse … [Click Below for Full Description]

Jona, Giovanni Battista [Judah Jonah Of Safed]
Roma Nella Stamperia Della Sacra Congregatione Di Propaganda Fide, 1658. 1st Hebrew Edition. Beautiful original tooled leather Boards. 8vo. 8, 63, 64 pages ; 22 cm. In dual Hebrew and Italian. Almost certainly the first use of the word “Propaganda” in a full-length book specifically targeted at the Jewish people. “Propaganda is a modern Latin word, the gerundive form of propagare, meaning to spread or to propagate, thus propaganda means that which is to be propagated. Originally this word derived from a new administrative body of the Catholic church (congregation) created in 1622 [36 years before the publication of this work], called the Congregatio de Propaganda Fide (Congregation for Propagating the Faith) , or informally simply Propaganda. Its activity was aimed at "propagating" the Catholic faith in non-Catholic countries. ” (Wikiepdia, 2017) This Hebrew Translation of a Christian Chatechism was the first full-length Hebrew book published by the Congregatio de Propaganda Fide, published for the purpose of converting Jews. It was translated by “Giovanni Battista Jona, originally Judah Jonah of Safed, (d.1678) , a Hebrew writer at the Vatican. Along with the censor Domenico Gerosolimitano he was one of two converted Jewish Scriptens at the Vatican who each produced translations of the New Testament into Hebrew. ” (Wikiepdia, 2017) The Congregatio de Propaganda Fide “originally founded by Pope Gregory XV in 1622 … was renamed by Pope John Paul II in 1982 (largely because the word ‘propaganda' had been given a bad name by Joseph Goebbels, the Minister of Propaganda in Nazi … [Click Below for Full Description]

(SEXBY, E.)
Lugduni, 1658. (2), 94 pp. [A-D12] 12mo. Later overlapping vellum, gilt lettering to spine. Quérard, Supercheries, i, 271; Brunet, i, 189-190: '...... livre assez recherché'. First French edition of Sexby's inflammatory Killing No Murder first published in Amsterdam in 1657. This French translation is perhaps the work of Jacques Carpentier de Marigny (See the Clark Library Catalogue vol. 13, p. 357). Famous pamphlet first published as Killing no Murder in 1657 published under the name of William Allen. It is an apology for tyrannicide ironically dedicated to Cromwell himself, printed in Holland and sent over to England. Sexby followed the book to England, to concert measures for carrying out its principles. He was arrested on 24 July while about to embark for Flanders. He died in the Tower on 13 January 1658. Sexby schemed for a long time against Cromwell from the moment the two men breached. This was the result of Cromwell's refusal to support the Frondeurs in France and his abandonment of other projects against France while Sexby strongly favored an Anglo-Spanish alliance against France. From that moment on Sexby allied himself with the disaffected Republicans and started disseminating pamphlets against the Protector and took a leading part in the schemes for joint risings of royalists and levellers. A vital part of all these schemes was the assassination of Cromwell: Sexby argued that Cromwell was a tyrant on a par with Caligula and Nero.
