        Institutionum D. Justiniani. Liber Primus (Quartus).

      1660 ca. 1660 - Manuscrit in-8 (120 x 180 mm) de (2) f. de garde (100) ff., écriture cursive très lisible à l?encre brune, maroquin rouge, dos à cinq nerfs cloisonné et fleuronné, décor à la Duseuil sur les plats, tranches dorées (reliure de l'époque). Superbe recueil calligraphié des Institutions de Justinien en latin établi dans la seconde moitié du XVIIe siècle certainement à des fins scolaires, un ex-libris manuscrit contemporain de l'ouvrage en attestant : Ce livre appartient à Mlle Watellet. Les Institutions furent d'ailleurs rédigées comme un manuel pour accompagner la promulgation du Code et du Digeste de Justinien, afin de faciliter l'enseignement et l'étude du droit. Inspiré en grande partie de celui de Gaius, il en reprend pour l'essentiel le plan, en séparant les personnes et les biens, séparation qui est encore celle du Code civil français et de beaucoup de textes juridiques contemporains. Très bel exemplaire en maroquin rouge du temps.

        Icones Principum Virorum Doctorum, Pictorum Chalcographorum Statuariorum nec non Amatorum Pictoriae Artis numero centum

      Antwerp: Gillis Hendricx, ca 1660. Folio (379 x 281 mm; 143 4 x 11 1 4 inches). Engraved title incorporating an etched self-portrait and 109 etched or engraved plates, including 11 etched by Van Dyck himself (nos. 98-108); the remaining etched or engraved by Jacob Neefs (3), Lucas Vorsterman (26), Paulus Pontius (30), Pieter de Jode (14), Schelte Adams Bolswert (11), Adriaen Lommelin (2), Nicolaes Lauwers (1), Robert Van Voerst (7), Cornelius Galle (1), Andreas Stock (1), Willem Hondius (2), Willem Jaconszoon Del (1), and Pieter Clouwet (1). The majority with foolscap watermark; countermark "AH". Interleaved with wove paper throughout. (Some occasional pale spotting, pl. 44 with 1-in. repaired marginal tear, overall generally clean and fresh.) 19th-century red morocco, gilt-lettered on spine, edges gilt, by Chambolle-Duru (joints rubbed, with top of front joint partly split, board edges somewhat toned, a few scuffs and scratches). Provenance: Pierre Mariette (1634-1716), from the Parisian family of engravers, booksellers, and print sellers (signature on verso of 103 of the plates, each dated between 1660 and 1693; two-pages notes on one leaf at front, summarizing the life and work of Van Dyck; manuscript index of subjects and plate numbers [inserted in manuscript on each plate, upper right] inlaid in larger sheet after the leaf of notes); with Morgand (stock number on front free endpaper); Robert Schumann; with Bernard Quaritch; John Galvin (initialed gift inscription, 1982); the present owner. A fine, tall copy of this important work in the history of portraiture with a superb provenance. Final states of the plates, after the addition of the title-page in 1645 by Hendricx, and after the erasure of the address of Marinus van den Enden, and the erasure of the initials of the publisher ("G.H."). Of the fteen plates now ascribed to Van Dyck himself, eleven are present in this copy, with the other four having been re-engraved, as is the case with the Hendricx issue. "Sir Anthony Van Dyck stands out as the solitary great etcher of the school. Portrait etching had scarcely had an existence before his time, and in his work it suddenly appears at the highest point ever reached in the art" (Hind, p.v165). "The plan of this publication took shape after Van Dyck returned from Italy (1626) and before he went to England (1632). He made careful preparatory drawings in chalk and brush for the publication. He directed and revised the work of the engravers, the best of the Rubens circle; he collaborated with his etching needle in some of the plates and himself etched the most beautiful set, mainly portraits of artists. One of the most brilliant in human characterization is the portrait of Peter Brueghel the Younger, son of the great Peasant Brueghel. It is remarkable that the etching appeared in this sketchy form in the book, proving that the master regarded it as nished. All interest is focussed on the wonderful hand. The first edition was published in Antwerp in 1635-1636. Yet it was not complete, and the title-page did not appear before the Gillis Hendricx edition of 1645, engraved by Jacob Neels" (Benesch, Artistic and Intellectual Trends, p. 32.) Hofer, Baroque Book Illustrations 132. With an important provenance, collected by Pierre Mariette, second- generation in the family rm of one of the leading engravers, book publishers, and print sellers in 17th-Century Paris. When he bought the business from his father in 1657, it was valued at an astonishing 30,000 livres. His own prodigious stock and collection would pass through the hands of his son Jean, and grandson Jean-Pierre (who catalogued the Crozat collection, considered the rst modern descriptive catalogue). This lineage of experts had access to, and obtained, the nest Old Master prints and drawings in Europe, and their dispersal after Jean-Pierre 's death included the "Spencer Albums" of prints. They are to this day one of the most important acquisitions made by Harvard University. It is unknown when the present suite of Van Dyck's important portrait series left the Mariette family, and it is possible that it remained unbound into the Nineteenth Century, and that this is therefore its fi rst binding. Joseph Maberly described "Pierre Mariette... [as] an eminent collector and dealer about the middle of the seventeenth century. He was accustomed, whenever he happened to become possessed of an impression of more than ordinary beauty, to write his name in full, and a date, on the face of the print [as well as on the back], and although this is certainly a dis gurement, yet such is Pierre Mariette 's reputation for judgment, that to be thus dis gured, is no disparagement to a print, but the contrary" (Maberly, The Print Collector, An Introduction to the Knowledge Necessary for Forming a Collection of Ancient Prints, Edited by Robert Hoe, New York, 1880, p.81).

        Haemisphaeria Sphaerarum Rectae Et Obliquae Utriusque Motus et Longitudines Tam Coelestes Quam Terrestres Ac Stellarum Affectiones Monstrantia

      Amsterdam 1660 - "Magnifica carta astronomica tratta da " Atlas Coelestis Seu Harmonia Macrocosmica " del Cellarius, il più importante atlante celeste mai pubblicato. Edizione pubblicata da Gerard Valk e Pieter Schenk nel 1708. Incisione in rame, magnifica coloritura coeva, piccolo strappo restaurato al margine inferiore, complessivamente in ottimo stato di conservazione." Finely executed celestial chart illustrating the motions of both the upright sphere (the equatorial co-ordinate system) and the oblique sphere (the ecliptic co-ordinate system); the celestial and terrestrial longitudes; and the influences of the stars, from the 1708 Valk & Schenk edition of Andreas Cellarius's Harmonia Macrocosmica Andreas Cellarius was born in 1596 in Neuhausen and educated in Heidelberg. He emigrated to Holland in the early 17th Century and in 1637 moved to Hoorn, where he became the rector of the Latin School. Cellarius' best known work is his Harmonia Macrocosmica, first issued in 1660 by Jan Jansson, as a supplement to Jansson's Atlas Novus. The work consists of a series of Celestial Charts begun by Cellarius in 1647 and intended as part of a two volume treatise on cosmography, which was never issued. Cellarius' charts are the most sought after of celestial charts, blending the striking imagery of the golden age of Dutch Cartography with contemporary scientific knowledge. The present examples come from the Valk & Schenk edition of Cellarius' atlas, which is unchanged from the 1661 edition. The 1660 and 1661 editions can be distinguished by the inclusion of a plate number in the lower right corner of the 1661 edition. The Valk & Schenk edition can be distinguished by the addition of the printer's name (Valk & Schenk) in the titles of the maps. Dimensioni 506 430mm

        FIDES-ANGELICANA. OR A PLEA FOR THE PUBLICK-FAITH OF THESE NATIONS . .

      London: N.p., 1660. FIRST EDITION. Written at the beginning of the Restoration period in England, this anti-imperialist pamphlet pleads for the fair compensation and equitable treatment of its citizens for the sake of the nation's honor. The author, no doubt, counted himself among those who were unjustly treated by Parliament; indeed, his financial problems seem to have been closely tied to the volatile political climate and his relative favor or unfavor. Although Wither (1588-1667) made his name as a poet and satirist, he became increasingly radicalized in his mature adulthood, associating with the progressive Levellers during the English Civil War. After Charles II's rise to power, Wither produced this and several other anti-imperialist pamphlets, for which he was sent to Newgate and then to the Tower under the charge of seditious libel. Despite his imprisonment, Wither continued to write and publish a number of works including "Paralellogrammaton" and "The Prisoners Plea" (both 1662). DNB speculates that the present work was probably published in 1661 (despite the 1660 imprint on the title) due to a reference to Venner's rising, which occured in January of that year. This work also contains a list of the author's publications on pp. 90-94, including a few works that are now lost.. 160 x 105 mm. (6 3/8 x 4 1/4)" [2], 94 pp. FIRST EDITION. Contemporary sheep. Front pastedown with bookplate of Robert S. Pirie. Wing W-3157. See also: Hensley "The later career of George Wither."

        World map - Frederick de Wit, 1660.

      ?Nova Totius Terrarum Orbis Tabula?. Copper engraving made by Frederick de Wit ?t Amsterdam in de Calverstraat inde Witte Pascaart 1660, published in De Zee-Atlas Ofte Water-Wereld of Hendrik Doncker in Amsterdam from 1660 to 1670. With original hand colouring. Size: 47 x 56 cm (plus margins).This was De Wit?s first world map. He derived it from the two hemisphere maps from Blaeu?s wall map of 1648, reducing them in scale and making some changes. (Bleau's own smaller world map with two hemispheres can be found here.) The upper corners contain northern and southern celestial maps and the lower corners show north and south polar projections. In the bottom center are astronomical diagrams -- a geocentric one on the left and a Copernican one on the right. The top center vignette shows the sun encircled by a zodiacal ring. Between the maps and diagrams are four vignettes with allegorical depictions of the Four Elements (air, fire, earth and water). The map also includes Baroque decorations of garlands of fruit and flowers.A magnificent example of the art of mapmaking, this map is one of only 19 reproduced in color in Rodney Shirley?s major scholarly work on world maps of the 15th to 17th centuries. In accompanying text, the author states that ?[e]specially when richly coloured, De Wit?s map is one of the most decorative standard-size maps of the time and it is much less commonly found than his three other atlas world maps.?Frederick de Wit (1630-1706) was founder of a prominent map publishing firm in 17th century Amsterdam, the golden age of Dutch cartography. The De Wit family both published their own atlases and supplied maps to other cartographers such as Hendrik Doncker.Reference: Rodney Shirley (1983)- ?The Mapping of the World: Early Printed World Maps 1472-1700?, p. 421, plate 311.Price: ?11.500,- (incl. frame).

        Lexicon Tetraglotton, An English-French-Italian-Spanish Dictionary: Whereunto is Adjoined a large Nomenclature of the proper Terms (in all the four) . . . With another Volume of the Choicest Proverbs in all the said Toungs. . .

      London: Printed by J.G. for Cornelius Bee, 1660. Rare First Edition of one of the most important works in the history of lexicography and a major source of the plagiarized proverbs Benjamin Franklin published in Poor Richard's Almanack. A fair copy. Ex-library: white numbers on spine, blindstamp, numbers and 'cancelled' stamp on title page, ghost of what was probably a pocket on the rear endpapers. Very old full-leather binding with 'Howell's Dictionary' on the title piece. Boards worn; corners extremely worn past leather to boards; boards once detached and now only reattached by several strips of cloth which are fairly loose. Ffep heavily chipped, with 1864 owner's name, reinforced at the foreedge. There is no half-title, first leaf is title page; two owner's names or notations, Anglesey Dec. 5 1663 and Stanford 1693. Obverse of title page blank; follows 3pp dedicatory 'To His Majesty Charles the Second'; another blank page is followed by the marvelous frontispiece which faces the introductory 'Poems by the Author.' A 6pp preface addressed 'to the tru Philologer' ends with a publisher's notice apologizing in advance for the inevitable errors in this first impression. There is some penciled marginalia in the preface and first few pages of the dictionary; there are also ink notes, much older, but nothing in the dictionary after the first 6 pages. Page 7 has piece torn from the foreedge with a few words lost. Text browning, few pages much more than most others, but everywhere legible. Dictionary followed by the phrasebook, with sections on anatomy, hunting, architecture, etc. Section on Navigation again has inked marginalia. The penciled underlines and check marks also appear occasionally. The first page of Section 50 of this part has a piece torn from foreedge, but no loss of words. The title page for this section (dated 1659) is bound in after the contents. The Proverbs or Paroimiographia section follows, also with a title page dated 1659.

Tauler left no formal treatises but wrote around 80 sermons which began to be collected in his own lifetime and were first printed in Leipzig in 1498.

        World map - Frederick de Wit, 1660.

      ?Nova Totius Terrarum Orbis Tabula?. Copper engraving made by Frederick de Wit ?t Amsterdam in de Calverstraat inde Witte Pascaart 1660, published in De Zee-Atlas Ofte Water-Wereld of Hendrik Doncker in Amsterdam from 1660 to 1670. With original hand colouring. Size: 47 x 56 cm (plus margins).This was De Wit?s first world map. He derived it from the two hemisphere maps from Blaeu?s wall map of 1648, reducing them in scale and making some changes. (Bleau's own smaller world map with two hemispheres can be found here.) The upper corners contain northern and southern celestial maps and the lower corners show north and south polar projections. In the bottom center are astronomical diagrams -- a geocentric one on the left and a Copernican one on the right. The top center vignette shows the sun encircled by a zodiacal ring. Between the maps and diagrams are four vignettes with allegorical depictions of the Four Elements (air, fire, earth and water). The map also includes Baroque decorations of garlands of fruit and flowers.A magnificent example of the art of mapmaking, this map is one of only 19 reproduced in color in Rodney Shirley?s major scholarly work on world maps of the 15th to 17th centuries. In accompanying text, the author states that ?[e]specially when richly coloured, De Wit?s map is one of the most decorative standard-size maps of the time and it is much less commonly found than his three other atlas world maps.?Frederick de Wit (1630-1706) was founder of a prominent map publishing firm in 17th century Amsterdam, the golden age of Dutch cartography. The De Wit family both published their own atlases and supplied maps to other cartographers such as Hendrik Doncker.Reference: Rodney Shirley (1983)- ?The Mapping of the World: Early Printed World Maps 1472-1700?, p. 421, plate 311.Price: ?11.500,- (incl. frame).

        CAPRICCIOSI & PIACEUOLI RAGIONAMENTI, . IL VERITIERE E'L DIUINO, COGNOMINATO IL FLAGELLO DE' PRINCIPI . LA PUTTANA ERRANTE OVERO DIALOGO DI MADALENA E GIULIA.

      [Jean Elzevier], Stampati in Cosmopoli, [Leiden:] 1660 - THE EARLIEST SURVIVING PRINTED WORK OF PORNOGRAPHIC LITERATURE. THE NOTORIOUS PUTTANA ERRANTE. Octavo (153 × 95mm.), three parts in one, pp. 541, [3]; 54, [2]. A-2L8, Aa-Cc8, Dd4 (2L8 and Dd4 blank). Roman and italic type. Titles of first two parts, the Ragionamenti, with typographical ornaments; La Puttana Errante with half-title and title with no bibliographical information, small floriated woodcut initials, grotesque tail pieces, typographical ornaments. In fine contemporary vellum over thin paper boards, yapp edges. Very rare marginal spotting in places. Small cracks to upper joint. A fine copy, crisp and clean. FIRST EDITION, very rare and a fine copy, of the earliest surviving printed work of pornographic literature. "The first imaginative prose work that deals directly and exclusively with physical sexual satisfaction" (Foxon p. 27). THE TRUE FIRST EDITION Two separate editions of Aretino's Ragionamenti were published by the Elzevier press, both with a new text appended, the Puttana Errante. Willems convincingly argues in his lengthy descriptions of this work, that of the two separate editions, the first was printed at Leiden by Jean Elzevier, and the second was printed eight years later by Daniel Elzevier at Amsterdam. The first edition of La Puttana Errante, in 54 pages, was added at the end of some, but by no means all, copies of the first printing of the Ragionamenti. It was however clearly intended to be an integral part of the first edition as it is printed on identical paper, using the same type, with the same number of lines (31). The second edition of the Ragionamenti was set up nearly identically to the first, but the second edition of the Puttana Errante was reset in 38 pages. Willems resolved the priority between the two editions by comparing the type and ornaments, and concluded that the second edition must have been printed in 1668, as it appears in Daniel Elzevier's catalogue of 1674 with that date, which he believes was most probably the correct date of printing. The printing of the first edition is finer than the second ("La plus belle" - Willems), and is easily identified by the finer type, which uses an elongated form of the letter x. "La Puttana Errante, overo dialogo di Madalena e? Giulia claims to be by Aretino and follows the same dialogue form as the Ragionamenti in which the elder woman takes the greater share: but it is almost entirely devoted to Madalena's sexual autobiography as a thread on which to hang most of the possible positions for sexual intercourse. It is the first imaginative prose work which deals directly and exclusively with physical sexual satisfaction, though this is garnished rather sparsely with some moments of emotion and glimpses of ordinary life. It ends with a named catalogue of thirty-five postures, which explains why sets of plates became associated with it; it might originally have been written as an explanatory text to pictures, but its origins are obscure. Modern authorities all agree that it is not by Aretino, and the first edition under this title seems to be an undated Elzevir edition, printed to accompany a new edition of the Ragionamenti in 1660. The appearance in London of John Garfield's periodical The Wandering Whore at the end of 1660 tends to confirm that date, for evidence over the next hundred years shows a very brief time lag between a Continental publication and its English repercussion. Garfield's work had no connection with the text of La Puttana Errante: he was clearly cashing-in on a new and notorious title" (Foxon pp. 27-28). The influence of La Puttana Errante was enormous and the book seems to have been very widely read, including in England, although no 17th century English translation is known to have survived. "The earliest specific reference I know to a pornographic book [in England] is in Pepy's diary. On 13th January 1668 he 'stopped at . . .

        Russia antique map - Blaeu.

      Russiae, Vulgo Moscovia dictae, Pars OccidentalisMap of Russia with original hand colouring. Size 49,1 x 38,9 cm. Published by Joan Blaeu in Amsterdam around 1660, as part his world famous Atlas Maior.A finely engraved depiction of the area from Estonia to Moscow. The map is very decorative, with pictorial topography, wildlife and a scene of men hunting bears in the upper part of the map. The decorative cartouche is flanked with moose and reindeer. Also this map is based on the travel journal of Isaac Massa from 1610.Isaac Massa (1586 - 1643) was a Dutch grain trader, traveller and diplomat, the envoy to Muscovy, author of memoirs witnessing the Time of Troubles and the maps of Eastern Europe and Siberia. Massa's experience in and knowledge of Muscovy transformed him into a Dutch ?Kremlinologist??.Massa is credited with five published maps of Russia and its provinces, the last ones compiled around 1633, and two maps of Moscow city. Retrieving original muscovite maps could have been dangerous for Massa himself and fatal for his Russian sources. Massa's rendition of the Siberian coast represented an advance in geography and for decades remained the only map of this region. It was subsequently copied by Dutch publishers Gerard Mercator and Henricus Hondius, Jan Janssonius and Willem Blaeu.Blaeu's Atlas Major in its various editions was the largest atlas ever published. It was justly famed (?the greatest and finest atlas ever published?? - Koeman) for its production values, its high typographic standard, the quality of its engraving, ornamentation, binding and colouring. Blaeu?s atlas frequently served as the official gift of the Dutch Republic to princes and other authorities. It is one of the most lavish and highly prized of all seventeenth century illustrated books. The maps are embellished in the Baroque style, and many rank among the most beautiful ever made.Price (excl. VAT): ? 850,-.

      1660 - with transcription, suspending all sequestration of Montagu's estates (which included Cowdray Park and Battle Abbey), following his petition "shewing, that hee hath for severall yeares last past (upon pretence of his being a Popish Recusant) groaned under the heavy pressure of a sequestration of more than two third parts of his Estate . although he was never convicted of recusancy", until "the meritts of his cause bee fully heard, and determined by due course of law", all those involved "to yeald their Obedience hereunto as they will answere the contrary to this House", 1 side folio and conjugate leaf with short title, House of Lords, 13th June Written within a few weeks of Charles II's Restoration. The petitioner's great-grandparents, the 1st Viscount and his wife, were staunch Roman Catholics and close to Queen Mary. Guy Fawkes served for a while in the 1st Viscount's household, and the petitioner's father, the 2nd Viscount, was in the Tower for over a year for alleged complicity in the Plot. John Browne, first appointed in 1638, was in fact a strong Parliamentarian, and served as clerk in the Lords until the house's abolition in March 1649. He was, nevertheless, re-instated at the Restoration and remained in this important post until his death.

Engraved title-page and 16 folding engraved plates bound at end. 18th-century half vellum over marbled boards (paper over boards heavily chipped at outer edges, extremities rubbed, corners scuffed). Text somewhat browned throughout, a few faint dampstains and occasional spotting. The engraved plates only little browned or spotted. The oversized letterpress tables on leaves pp3v to pp5r cropped at bottom affecting one line. Still a very good copy in an untouched binding. ----Koch 62; Darmstaedter, Probirbüchlein, 99; Libri rari 174; Ferchl 320; Lipperheide Pd 5; Partington II, 107. SECOND EDITION. Löhneyss gives the first description of the extraction of zinc at Rammelsberg" (Partington II, 108). Most copies of the first edition (1617) were lost when the printer's shop was destroyed during the Thirty Years War. The most notable sections of this work, which in its technical parts was on the whole a shameless plagiarism from Agricola and Ercker, are the contributions on economic aspects of mining. The work was originally illustrated with woodcuts by Moses Thym which were for this edition re-engraved in copper by J. Wichmann who executed them mirror inverted from the originals. Zweite Ausgabe des prächtig ausgestatteten Werkes, erstmals 1617 in Löhneysen's Privatdruckerei in Remlingen und Zellerfeld gedruckt (die meisten Exemplare wurden mit der Druckerei im Dreissigährigen Krieg zerstört). Der besondere Wert des "Berichts", dessen technische Ausführungen meist schamlos aus Agricola und Ercker abgeschrieben sind, liegt in den wirtschaftlichen Abschnitten: "Merkantilistischkameralistische Gedanken halten hier ihren Einzug in das bergtechnische Schrifttum" (Koch). Die Erstausgabe war mit Holzschnitten von Moses Thym illustriert. Diese wurden fur die vorliegende Ausgabe von J. Wichman seitenverkehrt kopiert und in Kupfer gestochen. [1660]. Very Good.

Firma di possesso di mano coeva sul secondo risguardo libero, che recita: &ldquo,Hic liber est Ippoliti de [non leggibile]&rdquo,. Alcuni fascicoli leggermente bruniti, qualche arrossatura marginale, ma ottima copia fresca e genuina.SECONDA EDIZIONE NOTEVOLMENTE AUMENTATA di qest'opera che si basa sulle lezioni tenute dal Bérigard presso lo Studio pisano. Rispetto alla prima edizione stampata a Udine nel 1642-43, questa nuova edizione fu interamente rivista e sostanzialemente aumentata.Il Circulus pisanus si presenta in forma di dialogo tra Charilaus, un seguace di Aristotele, e Aristaeus, che apoggia invece la filosofia pre-socratica e, in particolare, l'atomismo di filosofi come Anassimandro, Empedocle ed Anassagora. L'opera celebra sin dal titolo le &ldquo,disputationes circulares&rdquo,, ossia le dispute accademiche che ebbero un ruolo molto importante nell'insegnamento dell'autore a Pisa. Benché Bérigard sia molto prudente nell'esporre le teorie atomistiche condannate dalla Chiesa e le idee della nuova filosofia di Cartesio e Galileo e ufficialmente rimanga nei limiti della dottrina cattolica, appare evidente la sua sua simpatia per il nuovo metodo sperimentale applicato allo studio della natura e il libro descrive approfonditamente gli esperimenti sul vuoto e sulla caduta dei gravi condotti da Galileo.Claude Guillermet Bérigard (o Beauregard o, italianizzato, Berigardo) nacque a Moulins intorno al 1590, benché altre fonti (Nicéron) ne pongano la nascita al 1578. Studiò medicina e filosofia e ottenne una laurea in &ldquo,artibus&rdquo, presso l'Università di Aix-en-Provence. Visse per un periodo a Lione e Parigi, prima di trasferirsi in Toscana nel 1625, probabilmente su invito di Christine de Lorraine. Dal 1627 al 1638 insegnò a Pisa, quindi dal 1639 fino alla fine dei suoi giorni a Padova. Nel 1632 pubblicò le Dubitationes in Dialogum Galilaei Galilaei, il primo attacco a stampa contro il Dialogo sopra i due massimi sistemi del mondo. Ciononostante Bérigard, che ebbe modo di conoscere Galileo di persona, fu sempre molto elogiativo nei confronti del grande scienziato pisano, come testimonia anche il Galilaei encomium che si trova a p. 563 del Circulus Pisanus.Oltre a Galileo, sono molti gli scienziati del tempo ad essere citati nell'opera. Tra questi ricordiamo: Torricelli, Viviani, Cabeo, Bourdin, Boulliau, Mersenne, Cartesio, Digby, Kircher, Thomas Bartholin, Borelli, Copernico, Harvey e Hobbes. Anche Gassendi viene ampiamente citato per il suo atomismo, di matrice tuttavia molto diversa da quello del Bérigard.Benché Bérigard paia recalcitrante ad oltreppasare i confine della scienza tradizionale, il Circulus Pisanus si presenta indiscutibilmente come un tributo alla nuova scienza sperimentale: oltre al sopra menzionato elogio di Galileo, l'autore espone con competenza la teoria copernicana e la accetta nella misura in cui non può essere confutata sperimentalmente ma solo per l'autorità della Bibbia, ugulamente gli esperimenti di Torricelli sul vacuum sono negati solo sulla base del principio che Dio è ovunque e non può dunque esistere il vuoto. Il telescopio viene celebrato come strumento scientifico e nel commento al De Luna vengono esposte le teorie e le scoperte astronomiche di Copernico e Galileo.Cfr. P.

        Les récréations mathématiques avec l'examen de ses problèmes en arithmétique, géométrie, méchanique, cosmographie, optique et catoptrique. Premierement reveu par D. Henrion. Depuis par M. Mydorge. Et tout nouvellement corrigé & augmenté. Cinquiesme & dernière édition.

      Paris, Cardin Besongne, 1660. ____ Illustré par 84 bois gravures dans le texte. Il règne la plus grande confusion sur les auteurs de ce texte célèbre que l'on doit plutôt considérer comme une compilation de plusieurs auteurs. Largement inspiré de l'ouvrage de Bachet de Méziriac, cet ouvrage contient de nombreux problèmes originaux, ainsi que d'autres, extraits de Cardan. La première partie est traditionnellement attribuée à Leurechon, mais pourrait être d'Hendrik van Etten, la seconde à Denis Henrion et à Claude Mydorge. La troisième, qui traite des feux d'artifices est inspirée de Jean Appier Hanzelet. Les notes de Denis Henrion, qui dans certaines éditions, ont été rassemblées dans une quatrième partie, sont placées dans celle-ci à la suite de chaque "récréation", en caractères italiques et sont signées "D.H.P.E.M." L'exemplaire est bien complet. Déchirure au coin du feuillet Bb (page 385/386) avec perte de quelques lettres, exemplaire rogné court avec en fin d'ouvrage une atteinte à trois gravures dans le texte, mais sans manque important, il semble que ce soit juste le filet d'encadrement de la gravure qui ait disparu. Rousseurs. Coiffe rognée, première charnière fendillée. *****. In-8. Collation : (16), 416 pp. Basane brune, dos à nerfs orné, tranches marbrées. (Reliure de l'époque.).

        Discours fait en une célèbre assemblée touchant la guérison des playes par la poudre de sympathie, où sa composition est enseignée, & plusieurs autres merveilles de la Nature sont développées ...

      imprimé à Rouen, & se vend à Paris, chez A. Courbé, 1660, in 12, de 195pp. 1f., pl. vélin époque, qq. taches sinon bon exemplaire. Seconde édition française de ce traité de la poudre de sympathie, la première datant de 1658. Rappelons que la préparation à base de vitriol, dont le chevalier Digby acheta le secret à un moine italien, fit fureur à la cour de Jacques Ier et en France sous le nom de "poudre de sympathie". Dans ses principes de guérison, Digby semble avoir prévu le magnétisme 100 ans avant Mesmer. En effet, ne déclare-t-il pas que "tout corps envoye une continuelle émanation d'atomes hors de soy" et que "l'imagination forte d'une personne agit merveilleusement sur celle d'une autre qui l'a plus faible et passive". ¶ Rare Caillet n°3124 ne cite pas cette édition - idem pour Dorbon - Ferguson I.213 "Digby was a member of the nucleus of experimental philosophers who afterwards founded the Royal Society" - Krivatsy n°3242.
