Wien, 11. X. 1659.. ¾ S. auf Doppelblatt. Folio. Mit Adresse (Faltbrief).. In lateinischer Sprache an Ranuccio II. Farnese (1630-1694), Herzog von Parma und Piacenza, der ihr von seiner bevorstehenden Hochzeit mit Margarete von Savoyen (1635-1663) geschrieben hatte. - Die dritte Gattin von Kaiser Ferdinand III. war Gründerin mehrerer Klöster, darunter auch des Ursulinenklosters in Wien, war Schirmherrin des in Wiener Neustadt gegründeten Karmeliterinnenklosters und stiftete 1662 den Orden der Sklavinnen der Tugend für Damen der Aristokratie. "Die Erweiterung der Wiener Hofburg um den leopoldinischen Trakt geht auf sie zurück.

(Curtz, Albert).
Augsburg, Veronica Apergin, 1659.. . Erste Ausgabe dieses wichtigen Liederbuches, das neben denen Khuens, Schefflers u. a. zu den bedeutendsten Erzeugnissen des katholischen, überhaupt des süddeutschen Kirchenliedes seiner Zeit gehört. Das Buch fand auch in protestantischen Kreisen Gefallen, obwohl dieser katholische Versuch einer Psalmenübersetzung lange nach der beliebten evangelischen Version unternommen wurde. Der lateinische Text wird auf der linken Seite dem deutschen gegenübergestellt, "damit beyder Sprachen kündige Leser, sie gegen einander halten, und wo die ungeschickte Reim-art nicht außlangen: den abgang durch sich selbsten verbessern könde." "Dieses wichtige, sogar Goedeke entgangene Werk, von dem sich laut Schnapper kein Exemplar in den britischen Bibliotheken befindet, ist sowohl vom literarischen wie musikalischen Standpunkt offenbar noch nicht genügend gewürdigt worden ... Bemerkenswert ist dabei auch, daß der Verfasser wohl einiges von der protestantischen Choraldichtung des 16. Jahrh. gekannt haben muß, da sich gelegentlich Anklänge an deren Texte finden ... Mit den Dichtern Jakob Balde und J. Khuen war der Verfasser befreundet ... Die im Anhang mitgeteilten 46 Melodien für Diskant und Generalbaß zeichnen sich durch eine gewisse Schlichtheit aus, sie bewegen sich meist in halben oder Viertelnoten und Achtel- oder gar Sechzehntelläufe finden sich nur höchst selten. Im Nachwort geht Curtz kurz auf die Melodien zu den verschiedenen Versmaßen ein ... und es hat den Anschein, als ob er auch der Komponist dieser Sangweisen sei" (Kistner/Seebaß, NF 223).

PRYNNE, WILLIAM.
No place but London, London 1659 - 4to. 6 x 8 inches. Title page + 99 pp. Bound in quarter calf over mottled boards, spine with contrasting maroon title label, gilt. Extremities worn and some browning, foxing and staining; otherwise a very good copy. Title page with decorated woodcut border. Decorative border beneath text on final page. Some text in black letter. This is a vibrant first-hand record of the complex machinations of post-Civil War government in 17th century England. The notorious Puritan Prynne (1600-1669) began pamphleteering in 1627, but in 1633 was jailed, fined œ5000 and had both ears cropped for publishing a book which labelled actresses as whores, at a time when the queen herself had appeared on stage. Whilst imprisoned, he continued his pamphleteering and in 1637 was again fined, sentenced to life imprisonment, deprived of the remainder of his ears, and his cheeks branded with the letters S.L. (for seditious libeler). He was released from prison by Parliament in 1640. Prynne himself entered Parliament in 1648, and was one of the members excluded by Pride's military Purge which led to the establishment of the so-called Rump Parliament, and Cromwell's Commonwealth. After the fall of Robert Cromwell, Prynne, having supported the Restoration of Charles II, was subsequently rewarded with the post of Keeper of the Records of the Tower of London.

Prynne's Register highlights his realization of the inadequacies of most historical and legal writer's approaches to the English constitution. In common with the majority of mid-seventeenth-century writers and lawyers, he had previously considered the writings of Sir Edward Coke, and particularly the four volumes of his Institutes (1629-44), as constitutional gospel. The realization that Coke had r … [Click Below for Full Description]

ANGELI, Stefano Degli (1623-1697)
Venetiis,: Iannem La Noù, 1659. Venetiis,: Iannem La Noù,, 1659.. [xx], 408 pp. Small 4to (16 x 22,5 cm.). Modern half vellum over marbled boards, new end-papers. With 183 woodcut diagrams, and numerous wooodcut initial, head- and tail pieces. The rare first edition. In 1663 a second, slightly expanded, edition was published. "Angeli's studies in mathematics include a further development of the methods of individibles - methods introduced by Cavalieri and Torricelli - to solve the problem dealing with infinitessimals and with the areas, volumes, and centers of gravity of given geometric figures. His mathematical works echo the polemics that took place in the 17th century between supporters of the method of indivisibles and those such as Guldin and Tacquet, who defended the more rigorous but less cogent exhaustive method of the ancients. "Lectori benevolo" the introduction to Angeli's "De infinitis parabolis" is interesting in this connection. To those who opposed Cavalieri's method by asserting that the continuous is not composed of indivisibles, Angeli replied in agreement with his master, that the method in question does not depend on the composition of the continuous"(DSB.).

'In 1659 Charleton published a mechanistic account of physiology in Latin (Oeconomia animalis) and English (Natural History of Nutrition, Life, and Voluntary Motion), which included the suggestion that there was no increase in volume when a muscle contracted. Charleton was here rejecting the Cartesian account which attributed muscle shortening to its inflation by animal spirit. Charleton's assessment was confirmed experimentally by Jonathan Goddard in 1669' (Henry in Oxford DNB).

MENGOLI, Pietro
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 sym … [Click Below for Full Description]

Epictetus; edited by Meric Casaubon
London - Tho. Roycrofte, 1659 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A very scarce copy ofCasaubon's edition of theEnchiridion of Epictetus from the seventeenth century. In Greek and Latin. The Enchiridion, or Handbook of Epictetus, often shortened to simply The Handbook, is a short manual of Stoic ethical advice compiled by Arrian, who had been a pupil of Epictetus at the beginning of the 2nd century. Although the content is derived from the Discourses of Epictetus, it is not a summary of the Discourses, but rather it is a compilation of practical precepts. The Handbook is a guide to daily life. Unlike some of his forefathers in Greek philosophy (i. e. Plato and the other metaphysicians), Epictetus focuses his attention on how to practically apply oneself on a philosophical level. Mric Casaubon (14 August 1599, Geneva 14 July 1671, Canterbury), son of Isaac Casaubon, was a French-English classical scholar. Collated complete. Condition: In a full calf binding. Externally sound, though with some rubbing. Joints starting. Hinges strained. Internally, firmly bound. Ink signatures to title page. Paper to rear pastedown missing. Pages are bright and clean, with just the occasional patch of foxing. Overall: VERY GOOD..
