[xxx], 153, [1], [6]pp. London, John Starkey, In the dedication of the original French edition Pagan calls on Cardinal Mazarin to ?take posession of the Amazon and establish several colonies. He proves that it would not be a difficult enterprise and large armies and many pieces of artillery would not be necessary. The map drawn by Pagan is of great importance as a proof of the French ambitions in the Amazon regions.? (Borba). However, in the English edition here, the translator William Hamilton urges the Kind of England to take the same action in his ?Epistle Dedicatory?

         Hypothesis Ptolemaica Sive Communis Planetarum motus per eccentricos, et epicycles demostrans [epicyclos]

      1661-1708 1661 - 43 x 51 cm. Extraordinario ejemplar de este mapa celeste de Andreas Cellarius, que ilustra la hipótesis de Claudio Ptolomeo (c.100-c.170 d.C) referente al movimiento de los planetas en órbitas excéntricas y epicíclicas, y que muestra a la Tierra como el centro del universo. Esta elegante solución geométrica le permitió explicar de manera práctica dos problemas del movimiento planetario: la retrogradación de los planetas y la distinta duración de las revoluciones de los astros. Ptolomeo fue un destacado astrólogo, astrónomo, geógrafo y matemático greco-egipcio, que vivió en Alejandría donde se dedicó a la observación astronómica. Su principal obra es su Almageste, que compila los conocimientos más adelantados de las matemáticas y de la astronomía de la antigüedad. Como la mayor parte de los tratados científicos de la Grecia Clásica, la obra de Ptolomeo se perdió en Europa occidental durante el primer milenio de nuestra era. Es a partir del siglo XII, cuando aparecen varias traducciones del griego y del árabe del Almageste, pero sin que los traductores lograran entender la totalidad del discurso de Ptolomeo. Habría que esperar a una traducción de la segunda mitad del siglo XV para que fuera posible una difusión extensa y exacta de esta obra. Este notable mapa formó parte de la obra más conocida de Cellarius: Harmonia Macrocosmica, el único atlas celeste que se produjo en los Países Bajos antes del siglo XIX. Se trataba de una compilación de mapas celestes realizados por Cellarius desde 1647, entre los que destacan el modelo ptolemaico del universo y las otras teorías más modernas de Copérnico y Brahe. Fue originalmente publicado por Jan Jansson en 1660 en Amsterdam, como suplemento de su propio Atlas Novus, y es uno de los atlas celestes más bellos y decorativos que se hayan editado. Andreas Cellarius, matemático y cosmógrafo germano-neerlandés, nació alrededor de 1596 en Neuhausen y se educó en Heidelberg. A principios del siglo XVII emigró a Holanda y en 1637 se estableció en Hoorn. Sus cartas celestes son las más buscadas en el mercado, pues combinan la impresionante iconografía de la época dorada de la cartografía holandesa con el conocimiento científico más avanzado de la época. Además, cabe destacar que, al momento de la publicación de Harmonia Macrocosmica, las teorías astronómicas del sabio griego seguían siendo un referente muy importante para la ciencia, situación que explica la publicación de este grabado en pleno siglo XVII. Exquisitamente coloreada a mano, muy buen estado de conservación.

         L'arte vetraria distinta in libri sette,

      Florence: for Marco Rabbuiati,, 1661. ne'qualisi scoprino effetti maravigliosi e s' insegnano segreti bellissimi del vetro ne fuoco, & altre cose curiose. Impressione seconda, ricorretta, ed espurgata da varj errori. Octavo (141 x 95 mm). Contemporary limp vellum. A little browning to one or two gatherings, a very good copy. Second edition, following the Giunti edition of 1612, of the first published textbook of glassmaking. One special appeal of Neri's book was that it revealed the carefully guarded secrets of Venetian glassmakers, which the author had pieced together from working alongside Venetian craftsmen who had relocated to Pisa and Antwerp. "L'arte belongs to the medieval tradition of manuscript recipe books. It is divided into seven books, the first being the most interesting, dealing with the materials of glassmaking and their mixing and melting to form crystal and other colourless glasses. Other sections deal with coloured glasses and the making of enamels for goldsmiths' use. Although it was noted by Galileo …, the book made little impression for half a century" (Day & McNeil, eds., Biographical Dictionary of the History of Technology). The publication of this second edition triggered a renewed wave of interest, with another Italian edition appearing in Venice in 1663. It formed the basis of Christopher Merret's first English translation, published in London in 1662, with a dedication to Robert Boyle, which in turn inspired translations in German, Latin, French, and Spanish, making L'Arte vetraria the best known manual of glassmaking throughout Europe in the 17th and 18th centuries.

         Analyse des infiniment petits pour l'intelligence des lignes courbes .. Second edition..

      Gr.8, XV, 181 S, 11 gefaltete Kupfertafeln., OLdr. der Zeit., Deckel berieben, Fehlstellen im Aussenegelenk, Bibliotheksschild a. Vors. Papier etwas gebräunt, teilweise etwas stockfleckig und fingerfleckig. Guillaume François Antoine, Marquis de LHospital oder LHôpital (1661-1704) war ein französischer Mathematiker.Hospital interessierte sich früh für Mathematik und zeigte mathematische Begabung (er löste mit 15 Jahren ein Problem von Blaise Pascal über die Zykloide, das in einem Gespräch aufkam), wählte aber zunächst eine standesübliche Karriere als Kavallerieoffizier. Er gab die Stelle wegen Kurzsichtigkeit auf, vor allem aber um mathematische Studien zu betreiben. In Paris gehörte er um 1690 zum Kreis des Philosophen und Mathematikers Nicolas Malebranche. Dort traf er auch den basler Mathematiker Johann Bernoulli (1667-1748), als dieser 1691 Paris besuchte und für den Kreis um Malebranche Vorlesungen hielt und die von Leibniz neu entwickelte Infinitesimalrechnung bekannt machte. Anschließend nahm Hospital bei ihm Privatunterricht, als er ihn 1692 auf sein Schloss in Oucques (Kanton Marchenoir) einlud. Sie standen danach in Briefwechsel. Hospital bezahlte Johann Bernoulli sogar dafür, dass er ihm neue Ergebnisse exklusiv zukommen ließ.Hospital ist auch der Autor dieses ersten Lehrbuches über Differentialrechnung welches 1696 erstmals veröffentlicht wurde. Es beinhaltet Schriften seines Lehrers Johann Bernoulli. In einem Vorwort erweist Hospital den Bernoullis und Leibniz seinen Dank, nimmt aber gleichzeitig für sich in Anspruch, die Grundlagen der Darstellung der Differentialrechnung in seinem Buch selbst entwickelt zu haben. Sein Lehrbuch war sehr einflussreich und erlebte Auflagen bis 1781. Es wurde unter anderem von Pierre de Varignon kommentiert. Johann Bernoulli selbst erhob erst nach dem Tod von Hospital Ansprüche, große Teile des Buches selbst verfasst zu haben. Erst im 20. Jahrhundert wurden die Manuskripte von Bernoullis Vorlesungen in Paris[4], denen Hospital in seinem Buch folgte, und seine finanziellen Abmachungen mit Hospital bekannt.

He also made provided groundwork in Arminianism and is considered and ‘economic theologist’.

Grotius intended the work to be the cause of a change of attitude and bring peace back between the church and state.

         GALÈ RAZYA Hoc est REVELATOR ARCANORUM Ubi Illustriora Quaevis ac Difficiliora Scripturae Oracula nova methodo didactice.

      Samuel Chouet/Genève 1661 - Volume in-4 (23 x 17 cm) de (14) feuillets - 1040 - pages (12)ff. Samuel Chouet, Genève, 1661.Reliure de l'époque pleine basane fort solide, chasses et coins émoussés, coiffes accrochées. Mouillures anciennes internes essentiellement en fonds de cahiers, quelques anciennes galeries sans guère de dommages. Exemplaire, nonobstant ses défauts, de bonne tenue. Il s'agit ici d'un rarissime volume, une traduction et interprétation du GALÈ RAZYA (pour ce qui est du titre : Galè mot hébreu en 3 lettres GLY = "Révélateur" + Razya mot hébreu en 4 lettres RZYhA = "des arcanes" ou "des mystères".Ouvrage attribué au Juif Juda ha Nassi (Le saint), tanna du début du III e siècle.Un ouvrage qui, outre sa haute teneur cabale, entend non pas élucider mais du moins expliciter le mystère de la Sainte Trinité (cf. à ce propos l'excellent ouvrage de Von Drach "De l'Harmonie entre l'Église et la Synagogue", Paris 1844. Le Galè Razaya (ou Razya) est un livre mythique dont la diffusion reste encore bien confidentielle de nos jours. Son exégète, Antoine Crégut, eut d'ailleurs lors de la parution de son oeuvre à Genève en 1661, maille à partir avec l'un de ses coreligionnaire, Alexandre d'Yse (ou Dize), son prédécesseur à l'Académie Réformée de Die dans la chaire de Professeur de théologie. Soupçonné d'hérésie, il dut se défendre à Genève afin de poursuivre l'impression de son ouvrage alors suspendue. À ce propos, le Dictionnaire de Bayle nous livre des notes bien utiles dont voici quelques extraits : " Le synode de l'année suivante convoqué à Die choisit Antoine Crégut pour professeur de théologie. ce fut un choix provisionel qui devint définitif au bout d'un an par le jugement du synode de Pragelas. Mr D'yse, qui souhaitait d'autant plus d'avoir cette charge qu'il en avait fait les fonctions pendant quelques tems, traversa autant qu'il put l'élection d'un autre, & n'ayant pu réussir, il conçut une extrême jalousie contre Mr Crégut & chercha tous les moiens imaginables de lui nuire, quoi qu'il fit semblant d'être toujours son ami. Il contribua par ses intrigues à faire arrêter à Genève l'impression d'un livre sous prétexte que la doctrine était mauvaise et dangereuse." Crégut était alors l'un des quatre professeurs de la "Haute école" de l'Académie Réformée de Die, reconnu aujourd'hui comme l'un des "théologiens les plus savants de l'Académie de Die" (cf le Bulletin de la Société de l'Histoire du Protestantisme Français). Ouvrage d'une insigne rareté. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Jungenickel war Handwerker und Glaser, bevor er 1610 als wandernder Geselle in Prag zum Militär gezwungen und im Regiment des Johann Graf von Aldringen gedient hat. Er war 1630 in der Schlacht bei Mantua als Ingenieur tätig. 1631 war er Batterie-Meister in der Armee von Johann Georg I. von Sachsen, im Januar 1654 ist er gestorben. Seine Herkunft aus dem Handwerk beeinflusste auch das vorliegende Werk, in dem ein Dialog zwischen einem Mechaniker, in welchem unschwer Jungenickel selbst zu erkennen ist, und einem studierten Ingenieur wiedergegeben wird. Dieser gewinnt ständig neue Einsichten aus den Antworten des Mechanikus. "Das Werk war zu seiner Zeit geschätzt und wird in anderen Lehrbüchern der Mechanik lobend erwähnt. Noch das Zedlersche Lexikon. empfiehlt Jungnickels Buch als eine leichtfaßliche Einführung Maschinen zu beurteilen und zu erfinden". In der Dialogform geht Jungenickel auf Nikolaus von Kues und Walther Hermann Ryff zurück. Only edition of this rare work discussing the principal instruments of machinery; no biographical information appears to exist for this german mechanic of the last half of the 17th century. The work was edited by the austrian Martin Stier (1630-1669), a military engineer, topographer and cartographer, working in Croatia. From 1657 to 1660 Stier visited the border areas of Hungary to Istria to survey, sketch the land, and produce a map of this area. During the three years he collected quite extensive topographic material: his handwritten report consisted of 147 sheets in folio format, with maps, plans, views or drafts. "This work is structured as a dialogue between an engineer and a mechanic, in which they discuss the principal instruments of machinery including the level, gear, screw, and pulley. A section is devoted to a discussion of planetary movement with references to Sacro Bosco, Copernicus, and Apianus" (R.-T.).- VD 17 3:302614S; Bibl. Dt. Mus., Libri rari 150; Roberts-Trent 180.

         Carte particuliere des costes du Cap de Bonne Esperance

      Artist: Mortier Peter ( - 1711) Amsterdam; issued in: Amsterdam; date: ca 1700 1661 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Folded, partly restored, left margin replaced; - size (in cm): 59 x 80; - description: Map shows South Africa and the Cap of good hope; -vita of the artist: Pieter Mortier (1661?1711) was an 18th-century mapmaker and engraver from the Northern Netherlands. Mortier had a partnership with Johannes Covens I (1697-1774) and founded the map publishing company Covens & Mortier (1721-1866). Mortier, being French himself, had easy access to French cartographers such as De L'Isle, Sanson, Jaillot, de Fer and De Wit. Consequently, much of Mortier's business was built upon leveraging the sophisticated Dutch printing establishment to issue embellished high quality editions of previously contemporary French maps. In the greater context of global cartography, this was a significant advantage as most Dutch map publishes had, at this point, fallen into the miasma of reprinting their own outdated works. By contrast, the cartographers of France were producing the most accurate and up to date charts anywhere. Mortier's cartographic work culminated in the magnificent nautical atlas, Le Neptune Francois. Upon Pierre's death in 1711 this business was inherited by his widow. In 1721 his son Cornelius Mortier took over the day to day operation of the firm. Cornelius partnered with his brother-in-law Jean Covens to form one of history's great cartographic partnerships - Covens and Mortier - which continued to publish maps and atlases until about 1866.

         Le pavé de la grand' sale des bourgeois. [Amsterdam, Gerard Valk, 1719]. Very large engraved folding plan comprising 1 1/2 sheets (measuring 46 x 83 cm as assembled), engraved by Danckert Danckertsz. and his father after drawings by Jacob Vennekool, including the two hemispheres of the world map and a celestial map of the constellations of the northern hemisphere (each 10 cm in diameter).

      Cf. BAL 533 (1st Dutch ed.); Fowler 77 & 274 (1st Dutch ed.); Berlin Kat. 2235 (1st French ed.). Very large engraved plan showing the extraordinary cartographic mosaic floor of the Burgerzaal of the Amsterdam City Hall, designed by Jacob van Campen, with a celestial map in the centre and the magnificent map of the world in 2 hemispheres on either side. The engraving was first published in 1661, and the map shows Tasman's recent discoveries in Australia and Tasmania, and depicts California as an island. Many discoveries from his second voyage remained otherwise unpublished until the end of the 17th-century. This engraved representation is all that is left of this cartographical work of art. Wear caused by people walking on the mosaic meant it had to be restored about a hundred years later. When in turn this restoration was damaged the two hemispheres were filled in with plain marble slabs without pictorial representation.The drawing of the floor was made by Jacob Vennekool who worked closely with Van Campen, and since his drawings were first published even before the building was completed, they may reflect Van Campen's plan more closely than the finished building itself. They also, of course, show it before the alterations made at various times in later years.Slightly wrinkled in the right margin, one fold reinforced and a few tiny spots, otherwise in very good condition.

         Corso matematico del padre Giacomo Maso Siracusano della Compagnia di Giesu. Lettore gia delle matematiche ne' Collegi di Roma, e Malto, el nel presente di Palermo. Parte Quarta spherologica. Nella quale con ogni facilta, e brevita si spiega cio, che appartiene all Sfera Armillare, o cognitione di tutti i cherchi immaginarti del Cielo.

      Palermo, Giuseppe Bisagni, 1661 - 4to (198 x 144 mm), pp [xxiv, including engraved coat-of-arms] 481 [1], with half-title, woodcut device on title, one engraved plate at end, and numerous woodcut illustrations in text; a very clean, crisp copy in contemporary vellum.First edition of this rare treatise on cosmology, all published of a work originally intended to be in six parts or volumes. This volume is devoted to the armillary sphere and the understanding of celestial movements. The text contains frequent references to Galileo and perhaps reflects the influence of Maso's Sicilian contemporary Giovanni Battista Odierna (1597-1660).The text refers to observations made in Malta as well as Palermo. Maso cites Copernicus, Giordano Bruno, Christoph Grienberger, Kircher, Kepler, Longomontanus, Clavius, Cabeo, Riccioli, et al, along with observations made on the voyages of Magellan, Francis Drake, and others. Giacomo Maso, a Sicilian, studied sciences at the Jesuit Collegio Romano under Athanius Kircher, completing his studies around 1650. He then taught military architecture and mathematics in Malta, and helped organise the defences of Malta against the Turks, working directly for the Grand Master of the Knights of St John. He seems to have become disillusioned with the Jesuits and left the order, becoming a canon with the order of St. Georges until it was suppressed by Clement IX. He returned to Sicily, where he taught mathematics and astronomy in Palermo.Sommervogel V 697.1; Riccardi I.2 134; OCLC records only one North American location, Michigan, and only four European locations

Ogni sezione si apre con frontespizio proprio recante la marca tipografica. Le sezioni 2, 3 e 4 sono datate1660, mentre le parti 1, 5 e 6 recano la data 1661. Iniziali, testatine e finalini decorati. Con inoltre il ritratto dell'autore inciso da Giovanni Giorgi a c. ++4v e numerosi diagrammi xilografici nel testo. Firma di possesso di mano coeva sul secondo risguardo libero, che recita: "Hic liber est Ippoliti de [non leggibile]". 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 "disputationes circulares", 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 "artibus" 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.

      - Lyon, Coral/du Perier, 1661. 12o. Full leather, worn top spine end. Paper somewhat browned. Exlibris Daniel de Bruin. (28)+III+(9) pages. Illustrated with a folding engraving of the coronation of Charles King of Naples and Sicily in 1265 by Cardinal Raoul de Chevriers and 10 full page engravings of coats-of-arms and woodcuts in the text. Some water staining in the first few pages. Claude-François Ménestrier (9 March 1631 - 21 January 1705) was a French heraldist, a member of the Society of Jesus [Jesuit], and attendant of the royal court. Ménestrier was born in Lyon. He produced numerous books on heraldry, and was one of the greatest authorities on heraldry of his age. Ménestrier was the professor of the colleges in Chambéry, Vienne, Grenoble, and Lyon. During 1669-70 he intended to travel to Germany and Italy, but only reached Paris and lived there to his death. He was the most widely known heraldist of his time, and from 1622 he was in close correspondence with Philipp Jakob Spener, the founder of the German scientific heraldry who refused the merely symbolic interpretation of arms. Ménestrier maintained that we can know the essence of heraldry only from the sources from the age of living heraldry, but he was also influenced by the heraldic view of his age. Thus, his researches were abortive. This attractive book is dedicated to Claude Joseph and Leonard Francois de Chevriers, two French noblemen. The 'epistre' contains a genealogy of their family.

         Carte Particolare Della Stretto Di Iezo Fra I”America e”Isola Iezo - Chart of Pacific Northwest

      Florence: Dell'Arcano del Mare 1661 - Sheet Dimension: 21 x 16 in. Copperplate engraving. This sea chart from Robert Dudley’s splendid Dell’ Arcano del Mare (Secrets of the Sea), is the first marine atlas to employ the Mercator projection. In using the projection developed by Mercator, Dudley improved upon the theory of navigating by the “Great Circle,” the shortest distance between two points on a globe. It would be the eighteenth century before cartographers used the projection consistently, and during the great Dutch period of cartography not one atlas was produced using it. Although Dell’ Arcano del Mare was published in Italy, it is considered the first printed English nautical atlas. Dudley’s monumental work was the only exception to the total dominance of sea atlas production by the Dutch for nearly a century. Arguably the most sumptuous marine atlas ever produced, it contained no less than 146 sea charts, and dozens of illustrations and working diagrams. It was superior to any previous work in that the charts illustrated the whole world, the first time any outside of Europe had been included. Dell’ Arcano del Mare was also the first atlas to show the prevailing winds, currents and magnetic deviation. One of the great marine atlases of all time, the work was magnificently engraved, an encyclopedia of 17th-century knowledge regarding the seas. Robert Dudley was one of the more colorful characters in the history of map making. He was the illegitimate son of the Earl of Leicester, and in 1605 he abducted a beautiful heiress and fl ed England. He entered the service of the Duke of Tuscany as an engineer and naval commander, and he spent the rest of his life in Italy. In 1646 in Florence he published Dell’ Arcano del Mare, which besides the many beautifully calligraphic charts included detailed texts on navigation, shipbuilding and naval warfare, the whole written in Italian by Dudley himself. The atlas was twelve years in the making, and the main innovation lay in its conception of a world atlas of charts, both general ocean charts and detailed surveys, covering all the rival spheres of European do-minion: Spanish, English and Dutch. Dudley’s Dell’ Arcano del Mare is a monument in marine cartography, representing the culmination of his passion for the waters of the world and all that they had to offer.

         A LETTER Of ADVICE WRITTEN By Sr. FRANCIS BACON To the Duke of BUCKINGHAM, When he became Favourite to KING JAMES, Never Before Printed

      London: Printed for R. H. and H. B. and are to be sold at Westminster and the Royal Exchange, 1661. 1st Edition (Gibson 232; Wing B302). Modern tan quarter calf binding with brownish paper boards. Title gilt stamped to spine. Light binding wear. Bookplate of Fairfax of Cameron to front paste-down, with old bookseller slip affixed above. Book label of Nicholas Wall to rear paste-down. Period marginalia & underlining throughout, though the text-block trimmed at some point in the past, occasionally affecting the marginalia. Still, a Very Good Plus copy.. [2], 14 pp. 4to: A - B^4. 7-1/4" x 5-3/8" Quoting the slip, "Bacon's first approach to the favourite to whom he looked for advancement, and to whom in large measure he owed his rise." A somewhat minor effort of Bacon's, but perhaps giving a bit of insight into his conduct with James, from whom he too became a favorite, eventually ascending to the position of, in 1618, Lord Chancellor. On 12 July 1618 the king created Bacon Baron Verulam, of Verulam, in the Peerage of England; Bacon then became known as Francis, Lord Verulam. Uncommon in the trade; as we write this, we find no other copies currently on offer, with ABPC showing no copies at auction these past 30+ years, and the same result with a RBH search, i.e., no copies recorded.

Please see our pictures and ask questions for additional details. Galileo's Dialogue Concerning the Two Chief World Systems is one of the most ground breaking books written in scientific philosophy. It harnessed Copernicus's mathematics with Galileo's own observations made with a telescope, ultimately destroying the earth centric model of Ptolemy and the unmoving earth model of Aristotle. The seemingly circuitous form of the Dialogue reflects its origins, it was written in Florence under restrictions from the Inquisition's censors. Galileo had been banned by the Church in 1611 for teaching the Copernican view. After appealing to Pope Urban VIII, Galileo was granted the right to discuss the Copernican view, if he devoted equal treatment to the Ptolemic view. As a result, the work is organized as a discussion between an advocate of the Copernican heliocentric model, an advocate of Ptolemy's earth centered model (ever so discretely named Simplicius, in perhaps a bit of cheek) and an educated man they wish to convince. Galileo's obvious deception didn't go unnoticed and as a result he was tried for heresy in 1633. The book was banned and placed on the Index Librorum Prohibitorum by the Church (and not removed until 1822.) The importance of Galileo's work is that it contributed to the liberation of science and inquiry from the suppression of Church domination. This liberation of thought allowed for the progressive discoveries in the age of reason and ultimately the development of our modern world. "The Dialogo was designed both as an appeal to the great public and an escape from silence. In the form of an opening discussion between friends - intellectually speaking, a radical, a conservative, and an agnostic - it is a masterly polemic for the new science. It displays all the great discoveries in the heavens which the ancients had ignored; it inveighs against the sterility, willfulness, and ignorance of those who defend their systems; it revels in the simplicity of Copernican thought and, above all, it teaches that the movement of the earth makes sense in philosophy, that is, in physics. Astronomy and the science of motion, rightly understood, says Galileo, are hand in glove. There is no need to fear that the earth's rotation will cause it to fly to pieces. So Galileo picked up one thread that led straight to Newton. The Dialogo, far more than any other work, made the heliocentric system a commonplace. Every fear of Galileo's enemies was justified; only their attempts to stifle thought were vain." (Printing and the Mind of Man, 128). (Citing 1632 Italian ed.) Our copy was the first published in English (or any vernacular for 200 years) by Thomas Salusbury in 1661. Salusbury had been a royalist who had lived in France in Italy during the mid-1600s during the English Civil War. Full List of contents: Tome 1, pt. 1.
