        Observationum medicarum... centuria quarta

      Antoine Cellier Lyons: Antoine Cellier, 1659. First Description of Aortic StenosisRIVIERE, Lazare (1589-1655). Observationum medicarum, & curationum insignium centurae tres. . . . Edited by Simeon Jacoz. 4to. [8], 311, [9]pp. Lyons: Antoine Cellier, 1659. 225 x 167 mm. Speckled sheep c. 1659, rubbed, small wormhole in front cover. Some foxing, browning & dampstaining, old repair to one leaf. Very good copy. Old signature and notes on endpapers. First Edition. Riviere was the first to describe stenosis of the aortic valve, from a case that he treated in 1646. GM 2727 cites Riviere's description of this condition in his Opera medica universa (1674), of which the present work is the first edition; the description appears here on p. 177, and is entitled "Cordis palpitatio & pulsus inaequalitas." Riviere also brought Paracelsian iatrochemistry into the curriculum of the University of Montpellier, and it was under his auspices that Alexander Fraser introduced the Harviean theory of the circulation into the University's curriculum in 1636. An edition of the present work was published in The Hague in the same year as this Lyons edition. As Riviere was French it is reasonable to presume that the Lyons edition was first. Hirsch. Norman 1837. Willius & Dry, p. 58. Thorndike VIII, p. 518.

Des Heil. Römischen Reichs Chur-Fürsten und Stände zu Franckfurt am Mayn versamleter Ordinar-Deputation, den 4.14 Julij Anno 1659. Von [...] Mattias Biörenklouen. Utan ort, 1659. 4:o. 112 s. Enstaka småfläckar. Tagen ur band. Ur Ericsbergs bibliotek. VD17 14:052469M. Warmholtz 8361, not. Klemming, Sveriges förhållanden, s. 179. Den andra tyska översättningen av Biörenklous "Memoriale, in quo exponitur quantopere", 1659. Två olika med olika titlar finns. Ett av en stor mängd memorial som Biörenklou producerade under kurfurstedagarna i Frankfurt am Main. Mattias Biörenklou (eller Björnklou) Mylonius (1607-71) var en av Sveriges mest betydande diplomater under 1600-talet, minister i Paris och riksråd. Som den främsta svenska kännaren av Tyska rikets rätt och förhållanden skickades han som fullmäktig svensk minister till kejsarvaldagen i Frankfurt am Main 1657-59. Vid förhandlingarna där samarbetade Biörenklou med de franska delegaterna för att söka förhindra att Ferdinand III:s son Leopold valdes till ny tyskromersk kejsare. Detta misslyckades dock. Karl X Gustav önskade även en offensivallians med Österrike gentemot Polen, och Biörenklou bombarderade kurfurstekollegiet och riksdeputationen med memorial och skrivelser angående detta och annat. Österrike önskade dock ingen separatuppgörelse med Sverige, vilket inte heller stämde överens med Mazarins önskemål. Däremot lyckades Biörenklou få till ett subsidieavtal med Frankrike och att få in Karl X Gustav i Rhenförbundet som hertig av Bremen och Verden och herre till Vismar. Under 1659 flyttades Biörenklou till det franska hovet för att försöka utverka ännu mer subsidier till Sverige. Han är även ett av de mest fascinerande exemplen på klassresa i 1600-talets Sverige. Född av en mjölnare i Nykvarn dör han som riksråd i Stockholm

        J. Cleaveland Revived: Poems, Orations, Epistles, And other of his Genuine Incomparable Pieces, never before publisht. With Some other Expuisite Remains of the most eminent Wits of both the Universities that were his Contemporaries. Non norunt hëc monumenta mori

      Printed: 1659. 1613-1658 Octavo, 5.6 x 3.6 inches. First edition. A2-8, B-I8, K4. This copy lacks the portrait. This copy is a little dirty, the edges are slightly trimmed. It is bound in nineteenth century quarter calfskin and corners with marbled paper boards. The corners are worn and the paper is dirty. This volume begins a new series of Cleveland, which continued, for a few years, to be published concurrently with the regular editions of his works, and was finally incorporated in the edition of 1687. The editor of the collection, E. Williamson, in his epistle 'to the discerning reader' claims to have been a friend of the poet, from whom he received the manuscripts which he here publishes. In his words Cleveland stated to him that 'most of his former printed Poems were truly his own, except such as have been lately added, to make up the volume." Thinks can hardly refer to the borrowings from Fletcher, which appeared the same year as the present publication, since Cleveland died the previous year. The editor admits, both on the title and in his epistle, that he has included some pieces by authors other than Cleveland. The collection contains thirty-six pieces in all. Among them is a Latin version of 'The Rebel Scot,' the original of which had always been included among Cleveland's poems. Four different elegies on Ben Jonson are taken from 'Jonsonus Virbius,' a collection of elegies on Jonson, which was published after his death in 1638. In that volume only one of them, that beginning 'Who first reform'd our stage of justest laws,' is credited to Cleveland; of the other three, one is by Richard West 'Poet of Princes, Prince of Poets, etc.' one is signed by Jasper Mayne, and one is anonymous. "'An entertainment at Cotswold' is by William Durham, and was first published in Captain Robert Dover's 'Annalia Dubrensia,' 1638. Eleven pieces are taken from the Poems of John Hall, viz., 'Upon a Talkative Woman,' 'On an Ugly Woman,' 'On a Little Gentlewoman Profoundly Learned,' 'On Parsons the Porter,' 'To Chloris a Rapture, 'Upon Wood of Kent,' 'To His Mistresse,' 'On One that Was Deprived of his Testicles,' 'The Flight,' 'On a Burning-Glasse,' and 'Not to Travel.' In each case the title has been altered. It is probable that a close comparison with the miscellaneous verse of the period would disclose other borrowings." (Wither to Prior)

      Parisiis [Paris]: Excudebat Antonius Vitre, 1659. First edition, thus. Vellum blind stamped with device and rules, raised bands. Spine curled and partially detached at the bottom, boards soiled and worn, front board, endpaper, first blank, and half-title loose, a few notations to title page and occasionally in text, some light scattered foxing, small chips to the lower corners of three leaves not affecting text, otherwise quite clean.

Collation: a'4 e'4 i'4 o'4 u'4 aa4 ee2 *4 **4, A-Pppp4, Qqqq2, a-rr4, ss2, t1, Rrrr1. Double columns in Greek and Latin. Eusebius, bishop of Caesarea (b.260-70), and contemporary with Constantine the Great, is rightly called the Father of Church History. "The position of Eusebius, at the close of the period of persecution, and in the opening of the period of the imperial establishment of Christianity, and his employment of many ancient documents, some of which have since been lost, give these works a peculiar value" (CE). The work was later added to by others including Socrates, Sozomen, Theodoret, and Evagrius. The best and most important edition is that of Henri de Valois (Valesius) who published his first edition of the Greek text, with a new Latin translation and with copious critical and explanatory notes at Paris in 1659, which also included Eusebius' Vita Constantini (the remainder of the collection of the early Greek historians of the Church was published in two subsequent folio volumes ending in 1673). "For the elucidation of Eusebius' History we owe more to Valesius than to any other man. His edition of the text was an immense advance upon that of Stephanus, and has formed the basis of all subsequent editions, while his notes are a perfect storehouse of information from which all annotators of Eusebius have extensively drawn. Migne's edition (Opera, II 45-906) is a reprint of Valesius' edition of 1659" (Schaff, Post-Nicene Fathers, 98). ABPC shows only one copy has come up at auction in the last 40 years, at Quaritch in 1984. Institutional bookplate on the free front endpaper noting the book was a gift of Michael J. O'Farrell, the first Bishop of the Diocese of Trenton, with his bookplate on the half title. Brunet 1110.

        Titus Lucretius Carus His Six Books Of Epicurean Philosophy, Done into English Verse, with Notes. The Third Edition. Demetri, Teq; Tigelli Discipulorum inter jubeo plorare Cathedras; i, Puer, atque meo citus hoc subscribe libello

      95-52 B.C. Octavo, 7.6 x 4.5 inches. f Third edition. (a*)4, Ù2, (A)-(D)4, A-Z4, Aa-Ee4, (a)-(h)4, I2.(This copy has an extra blank bound after the title page.) The engraved frontispiece is bound opposite the title. This copy is bound in contemporary calfskin, and has been rebacked. This translation was prepared by Thomas Creech (1659-1700). The prefatory material contains commendatory poems by John Evelyn, Nathaniel Tate, Thomas Otway, and Aphra Behn among others, many of which were added after the first and second editions and this, the third edition contains the first appearance of several poems. The influence of Lucretius can be seen in Pope's 'Essay on Man.' Lucretius was also favorite reading of Shelley, Wordsworth, and Tennyson. "Creech's translation of Lucretius vied in popularity with Dryden's Virgil and Pope's Homer. The son of one of his friends is reported to have said that the translation was made in Creech's daily walk round the parks in Oxford in sets of fifty lines, which he would afterwards write down in his chamber and correct at leisure. [.] When Dryden published his translations from Theocritus, Lucretius, and Horace, he disclaimed in the preface any intention of robbing Creech 'of any part of that commendation which he has so justly acquired,' and referred to his predecessor's 'excellent annotations, which I have often reprinted in the last century, and was included in the edition of the British poets which was issued by Anderson."

        Geometriae Speciose Elementa.The Most Original Pupil of Bonaventura Cavalieri. Bologna: Giovanni Battista Ferroni, 1659.

      Very rare first edition, and a fine copy from the library of Pietro Riccardi, of this important work on limits of geometrical figures. In this work Mengoli "set up the basic rules of the calculus thirty years before Newton and Leibniz. Both of these were influenced by his contribution, in the case of Leibniz the influence was direct as he read Mengoli's work while in the case of Newton he knew of it indirectly through studying Wallis." (MacTutor History of Mathematics). <br/></br> "In the 'Geometriae speciosae elementa' (1659), Mengoli set out a logical arrangement of the concepts of limit and definite integral that anticipated the work of nineteenth-century mathematicians. In establishing a rigorous theory of limits, he considered a variable quantity as a ratio of magnitudes and hence needed to consider only positive limits. He then made the following definitions: a variable quantity that can be greater than any assignable number is called 'quasi-infinite'; a variable quantity that can be smaller than any positive number is 'quasi-nil'; and a variable quantity that can be both smaller than any number larger than a given positive number <i>a</i> and greater than any number smaller than <i>a</i> is 'quasi-<i>a</i>.' <br/></br> Using these precise concepts of the infinite, the infinitesimal, and the limit, and working from simple inequalities valid between numerical ratios, he demonstrated (as Agostini recognized by translating his obscure exposition into modern symbols and terminology) the properties of the limit of the sum and the product, and showed that the properties of proportions are conserved also at the limit. The proofs obtain when such limits are neither <i>0</i> nor <i>&infin;</i> for this case Mengoli set out the properties of the infinitesimal calculus and the calculus of infinites some thirty years before Newton published them in his 'Principia.' <br/></br> Mengoli's predecessors (among them Archimedes, Kepler, Valerio, and Cavalieri) had assumed as intuitively evident that a plane figure has an area. By contrast, he proved the existence of the area by dividing an interval of the continuous figure <i>f(x)</i> into <i>n</i> parts and considering, alongside the figure to be squared (which he called the 'form'), the figures formed by parallelograms constructed on each segment of the interval and having the areas (in modern notation): <br/></br> <i>s<sub>n</sub>= &sum;</sub>l<sub>i</sub>(x<sub>i+1</sub>-x<sub>i</sub>), i=1, 2, ... n</i> (inscribed figure) <br/></br> <i>S<sub>n</sub>= &sum;</sub>L<sub>i</sub>(x<sub>i+1</sub>-x<sub>i</sub>)</i> (circumscribed figure) <br/></br> <i>&sigma;<sub>n</sub>= &sum;</sub>f(x<sub>i</sub>)(x<sub>i+1</sub>-x<sub>i</sub>) </i> or <br/></br> <i>&sigma;'<sub>n</sub>= &sum;</sub>f(x<sub>i+1</sub>)(x<sub>i+1</sub>-x<sub>i</sub>) </i> (adscribed figure) <br/></br> where <i>l<sub>i</sub></i> and <i>L<sub>i</sub></i> denote, respectively, the minimum and maximum of <i>f(x)</i> on the interval <i>(x<sub>i</sub>, x<sub>i+1</sub>)</i>. Drawing upon the theory of limits that had worked so well in the study of series, Mengoli demonstrated that the sequences of the <i>s<sub>n</sub></i> and <i>S<sub>n</sub></i> tend to the same limit to which the sequences of the <i>&sigma;<sub>n</sub></i> and <i>&sigma;'<sub>n</sub></i> compressed between them, also tend. Hence, since the figure to be squared is always compressed between the <i>s<sub>n</sub></i> and the <i>S<sub>n</sub></i>, it follows that this common limit is the area of the figure itself. <br/></br> Mengoli also used this method to integrate the binomial differentials <i>Z<sup>s</sup>(a-x)<sup>r</sup>dx</i> with whole and positive exponents. (He had, preceding Wallis, already integrated these sometime before by the method of indivisibles.) Before publishing his results, however, he wished to give a rigorous basis to the method of indivisibles or to develop in its stead another method that would be immune to criticism. He therefore set out a purely arithmetic theory of logarithms; having given a definition of the logarithmic ratio similar to Euclid's definition of ratio between magnitudes, he then extended Euclid's book V to encompass his own logarithmic ratio. Mengoli also did significant work in logarithmic series (thirteen years before N. Mercator published his 'Logarithmotecnia'). (DSB: IX, p.303-304).. 4to: 198 x 147 mm. Contemporary Italian vellum.

        Vita della venerabile madre paola da foligno fondatrice della compagnia, e dell'oratorio di s. orsola in detta citta scritta da michel'angelo marcelli da foligno prete dell'oratorio del buon gesu',in roma, nella stamperia di vitale mascardi, 1659.

      In 4, [mm. 212 x 155], pp. (14) - 201 - (31).In mezza pergamena con carta con decorazioni azzurre. Dorso liscio con titolo in oro entro cornice, ormai quasi completamente svanito. Qualche abrasione ai piatti. Tagli spruzzati.Grandi capilettera figurati e finalini incisi in legno.Ottimo esemplare su carta pesante a grandi margini di quest'opera, priva purtroppo dell'antiporta incisa da Guillaume Chasteau, del frontespizio e del ritratto della Madre Paola da Foligno. Qualche sottolineatura a matita rossa a margine. Nata nel 1571, fondò nel 1600 nella chiesa di San Sebastiano la Compagnia di S. Orsola che ebbe quale primo protettore il Cardinale Cesare Baronio il quale, passando per Foligno volle vedere Madre Paola e propugnò poi presso il Vescovo della città la fondazione della Compagnia che questi aveva invece rifiutato. Da Foligno, la Compagnia di Sant'Orsola venne fondata anche a Vescia e poi a Pergola. Madre Paola morì a Foligno il 20 luglio del 1647 e venne deposta nell'oratorio di Sant'Orsola.

        Astronomiae Physicae & Geometricae Elementa.Oxford: Sheldonian Theatre, 1702. First edition.

      A fine copy of the first text book of astronomy based on Newtonian principles, which contains the first printings of Newton's lunar theory and his "classical scholia". Babson 71; Gray 87. "The nephew of James Gregory, the mathematician, and the son of the Laird of Kinnairdie, David Gregory (1659-1708) was educated at the University of Edinburgh where he was soon appointed to it chair of Mathematics in 1683. In 1684 he sent Newton a manuscript showing the application of the method of infinite series to a variety of geometrical problems. The two met in 1691 and shortly afterwards Newton helped him obtain the Savilian Chair of Astronomy at Oxford. In 1702 Gregory published </i>Astronomiae Physicae & Geometricae</i> as the first textbook of astronomy based on Newtonian principles. The introduction includes the "Classical Scholia" which Newton had prepared for insertion in his planned second edition of the Principia. This attempted to show that essential elements of Newtonian science were also espoused in classical times. Gregory also included Newton's Theory of the Moon's Motion [<i>Lunae Theoria Newtoniana</i>, pp.332-336], long used as a guide for practical astronomers in determining the moon's motion." (Gjertsen: The Newton Handbook). Sotheran I: 1652; Wallis 87; Houzeau & Lancaster 9240.. Folio: 369 x 245 mm. Contemporary Cambrdige panelled calf. Expertly re-backed, preseving the original gilt leather label. A very nice copy. Internally clean and fine throughout. Provenance: armorial book-plate to front paste-down of the Earl of Breadalbane.
