Blount, Thomas
London: Thomas Newcombe for George Sawbridge, 1661.. Second Edition. Full-Leather. Very Good. Second edition "more correct ... five hundred words are added." Uncommon in any edition. Binding looks early 19th c. The leather on spine cracked to bottom half and split along front hinge but book still holding firm. Heavy wear to top of spine. Wear to corners and extremities. Internally hinges solid and pages are clean. Errata leaf at end. The biggest flaw is that there is a sizeable chunk missing from the title page (see illustrations) which is why the price is as it is... a shame as otherwise pages are clean and the book is solid. Nothing before the title (A1) but otherwise complete.Postage will be confirmed when you enquire or order and for light or very heavy books will vary from the ABE quote which is based on a 1kg parcel.

A very good and fully complete copy of "one of the most complete accounts of the physical experiments and technological inventions of mid-seventeenth-century science, especially valuable for its description of Guericke's research with the vacuum pump [illustrated here for the first time, see below] and for the first appearance of Guericke's letters to Schott (1661-62). Also described are Boyle's experiments with his vacuum pump ...

He then evacuated the air from the resulting sphere and showed that a most heavy weight could not pull them apart. Contrary to legend, the demonstration was performed with a team of horses for the first time in Magdeburg in 1657 (not Regensburg in 1654) and repeated at court in Berlin in 1663. Guericke also made other, less dramatic, public demonstrations of the effectiveness of air pressure on several occasions in Regensburg; these Regensburg experiments were reported by Gaspar Schott in <i>Mechanica hydraulico- … [Click Below for Full Description]

This edition not in BL online catalogue. Andrea Alciato's Emblematum liber or Book of Emblems had enormous influence and popularity in the 16th and 17th centuries. It is a collection of 212 Latin emblem poems, each consisting of a motto (a proverb or other short enigmatic expression), a picture, and an epigrammatic text. Alciato's book was first published in 1531, and was expanded in various editions during the author's lifetime. It began a craze for emblem poetry that lasted for several centuries. Andreas Alciat was born on May 8, 1492 in Milan or nearby Alzate, the son of a prosperous merchant. He was a successful lawyer and university professor and lived at various times in Milan, Bologna, Avignon, and Paris. He died on January 12, 1550. Alciat's Liber Emblemata was the first of many emblem books that were the literary vogue in the 16th century. At this time interest in the newly rediscoved Egyptian hieroglyphics ran high among the educated and the emblem books were, in part, an attempt to de … [Click Below for Full Description]

Matthaus Merian
Frankfurt 1661 - Mathias Merian the Elder (1593-1650) was one of the most prominent members of the leading print publishing family of 17th-century Germany, known throughout Europe for his engravings of cityscapes and landscapes, his scientific books, and his editions of the noted series of travel books, the “Great Voyages”. Born and trained in Basel, Switzerland in the early 1600’s he began studying drawing, engraving and etching in Zurich with engraver Friedrich Meyer. Merian joined the Frankfurt publishing house of Johann Theodor de Bry in 1616 and, the following year, he married de Bry’s daughter Maria Magdalena. Merian gained his greatest acclaim as head of the family publishing house following the death of his father-in-law in 1623. He rapidly and almost single-handedly built up the house to become one of the most important in Europe, etching most of the plates himself until about 1645, when he increasingly relied upon the help of a growing staff of assistants and pupils, among them Wenceslaus Hollar, Rudolf and Conrad Meyer of Zurich, and his sons Matthaus and Casper. “Topographia Galliae” was published from 1655 to 1661 in partnership with Martin Zeiller who wrote the text. “Topographia Galliae” was one of the largest and most comprehensive publishing’s of the Gaul region of its time with engravings of major European cities and historically important locations, each expertly engraved by Merian and his sons. In total, “Topographia Galliae” is comprised of 13 parts in four volumes, with nine engraved additional tit … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Eliot, John]: [Brigham, Clarence]:
[Cambridge, Ma.: Samuel Green & Marmaduke Johnson, 1661-1663].. Two leaves, plus two single-page letters. Leaves lightly dampstained, a few small edge tears with older repairs. About very good. Letters near fine. Two conjugate leaves from the famed "Eliot Indian Bible," the first Bible printed in any language in the American colonies and one of the most important issues of the 17th-century colonial press. Together here with related correspondence explaining their provenance. "Not the least of the many features of interest which concentrates in this volume, are the statements of undoubted authorities, that Eliot was engaged for ten years in its translation; that it was the first Bible printed in America; that a large portion of the composition in the printing of the second edition at least, was performed by Indian James; and that the work was three years in passing through the press" - Field. "Supported by the London-based Society for the Propagation of the Gospel, Eliot began a phonetic translation of the Scriptures into Natick, which had previously not had a written form. The Corporation supplied a printing press for the work, as well as a new set of metal type to print the text. The type font required extra samples of the letters "k" and "q," as well as a totally new character that Eliot devised for a particular Natick pronunciation" - Siebert. Not only does this work stand alone as a monolith of early American printing, but it offers a link to the very first issue of the Cambridge press, the Bay Psalm Book.

VALERIO, Luca
Woodcut printer's device on title & numerous woodcut diagrams in the text. 4 p.l., 260 pp. 4to, cont. limp boards (a little soiled, unimportant marginal dampstaining). Bologna: Heirs of Ducci, 1661. Second edition, combining the De Centro Gravitatis Solidorum and the Quadratura parabola; this edition contains important authorial additions and corrections. These two texts had a considerable influence on Galileo and his studies on motion. Valerio (1552-1618), who had studied under Clavius, met Galileo in Pisa in 1590 and influenced him to renew his studies on the centers of gravity. In 1609 they began an extensive correspondence on problems of motion and mathematics. It was during this time that Galileo was preparing his treatise on motion and mechanics which later became the Discorsi of 1638. "In December 1612, having completed his Sunspot Letters, Galileo considered having the Linceans print his work on centers of gravity of paraboloids, probably in the form of a letter to Luca Valerio. Ensuing correspondence shows that he sent this to Cesi, who in discussing the matter with Valerio found that he was then revising his own book on a similar subject, published in 1603-4. Galileo accordingly gracefully withdrew his work from publication at this time, for which Valerio expressed his gratitude. In fact Valerio did not reprint his book, and Galileo eventually placed his investigations of centers of gravity in an appendix to his own last book in 1638."­Drake, Galileo at Work, p. 202. Valerio's influence on Galileo, through his correspondence and these two books, was enorm … [Click Below for Full Description]

Frankfurt 1661 - Mathias Merian the Elder (1593-1650) was one of the most prominent members of the leading print publishing family of 17th-century Germany, known throughout Europe for his engravings of cityscapes and landscapes, his scientific books, and his editions of the noted series of travel books, the “Great Voyages”. Born and trained in Basel, Switzerland in the early 1600’s he began studying drawing, engraving and etching in Zurich with engraver Friedrich Meyer. Merian joined the Frankfurt publishing house of Johann Theodor de Bry in 1616 and, the following year, he married de Bry’s daughter Maria Magdalena. Merian gained his greatest acclaim as head of the family publishing house following the death of his father-in-law in 1623. He rapidly and almost single-handedly built up the house to become one of the most important in Europe, etching most of the plates himself until about 1645, when he increasingly relied upon the help of a growing staff of assistants and pupils, among them Wenceslaus Hollar, Rudolf and Conrad Meyer of Zurich, and his sons Matthaus and Casper. “Topographia Galliae” was published from 1655 to 1661 in partnership with Martin Zeiller who wrote the text. “Topographia Galliae” was one of the largest and most comprehensive publishing’s of the Gaul region of its time with engravings of major European cities and historically important locations, each expertly engraved by Merian and his sons.

Secondo stato su due.Analogamente al Testa, al Castiglione e al Della Bella, Salvator Rosa sentì l'incisione come il mezzo tecnico più adatto ad esprimere il suo linguaggio espressivo ed infatti insieme agli artisti sopra citati è da considerare protagonista della storia dell'incisione italiana del Seicento.Esponente di una vasta cultura eclettica, i suoi molteplici interessi figurativi avevano come poli il classicismo carraccesco, il naturalismo del Ribera, la pittura romana contemporanea e il mondo antico.Da quest'ultimo in particolare il Rosa sembra trarre spunto per le sue colte composizioni incise che, come già nel Testa, si ricollegano alle tematiche care alla filosofia stoica, glorificando le virtù con allegorie assai complesse e costruite. A questo aspetto va aggiunto anche l'interesse per il mondo esoterico che gli ispirò composizioni negromantiche in pitture.La sua grande abilità tecnica e la padronanza del mezzo incisorio all'acquaforte hanno fatto sì che le stampe di Salvator Rosa venissero apprezzate sin dall'antichità, copiate e ricercate da collezionisti e mercanti.Bartsch 6.
