        TRACTATUS PHYSIOLOGICUS DE PULCHRITUDINE. JUXTA EA QUAE DE SPONSA IN CANTICIS CANTICORUM MYSTICE PRONUNCIANTUR

      Typis Francisci Foppens, Bruxellis 1662 - 152 x 90 mm. (6 x 3 1/2"). 4 p.l., 60 pp., [1] leaf (approbation). FIRST EDITION. Pleasing 18th century marbled calf, raised bands, spine gilt in compartments with acorn tool at center, pomegranate cornerpieces, red morocco label, marbled endpapers. Woodcut initials and tailpieces, and 30 engravings on title and in text of female faces and animal faces, to which some of them are compared. Dorbon 5014; Wellcome V, 322; Brunet V, 1026 ("orné de jolies gravures au trait"). Extremities a little rubbed, small black smudge to upper board, the binding otherwise lustrous and well preserved, and A FINE COPY INTERNALLY, quite clean, fresh, and bright. This is the sole printing of an obscure but fascinating physiological treatise on pulchritude. The text is divided up into 14 sections, each of which begins with a quotation from the "Song of Songs," followed by an explanation of how the quoted "mystic" words show that Solomon indeed knew what perfect female beauty was. For example, in chapter 1, the quotation "your head is like the camel's" is used as evidence that a woman's head ought to be lofty, and juxtaposed engravings of a (wary) camel and a (despondent) woman give a graphic reinforcement to the point. The chapter, like the other 13, ends with an appropriate short poem, presumably by the author. Brunet, in an understatement, says that the title of this charming and wacky work "gives some indication of its singularity."

        1662 Francis Bacon History of King Henry VII Queen Elizabeth Politics ELZEVIER

      Amstelodami : Ex. officina Elzeviriana, 1662. - 1662 Francis Bacon History of King Henry VII Queen Elizabeth Politics ELZEVIER “Some books should be tasted, some devoured, but only a few should be chewed and digested thoroughly.” Francis Bacon Francis Bacon, one of the most famous English philosophers and scientists of the Renaissance. While most of his work deals with discovery, scientific method, and the scientific revolution, he did lean strongly toward Puritanism in his personal devotion. A rare printing of Bacon’s “Historia regni Henrici Septimi”, or the History of Henry VII. According to Willems, this is a reissue of the 1642 first edition. “‘The History of Henri VII’ of Bacon had already appeared in the same format and with the same frontispiece [in 1642].” (Willems 1278). This printing’s ‘frontispiece’ is a fully-illustrated title page. A very fine copy. According to Bergeron, “[This work] exists as Bacon’s only finished full-scale history of an era .[it is also] Bacon’s portrait of King Henry’s relationship with his wife Queen Elizabeth.” This book has also been nicknamed “The first modern classic of English history”. It is a culmination of Bacon’s experience in politics and government and in a fine literary style, Bacon analyzes the King’s actions and political issues.

        A discourse of artificial beauty, in point of conscience, between two ladies.

      London printed for R. Royston at the Angel in Ivy-lane 1662 - 8vo., engraved frontispiece, (10) + 262 + (2)pp., including the terminal blank (S4), contemporary ruled sheep, rebacked and labelled, corners and edges worn, endpapers replaced. A good, crisp, copy. First edition with this title, following the 1656 Discourse of auxiliary beauty.> This was a Christian religion-inspired demolition of women's vanity as evidenced by the use of cosmetics. The author's 13 objections to make-up included: 1. 'Against all painting the face as unlawful'. 5. 'Painting the face against the seventh commandment forbidding all adultery'. 7. 'Painting the face a badge of vanity and appearance of evil'. 8. 'Painting the face a mark of pride, arrogancy and hypocrisie'. 10. 'Painting the face very scandalous, and so unlawful'. Authorship has usually been attributed to John Gauden (1605-1662), although by some to Jeremy Taylor and to Obadiah Walker. Enigmatically, the author him- or herself throws out the possibility that 'the author and writer' was actually a woman. [Attributes: First Edition]

Buon esemplare, un po' allentato, alcune bruniture. G. A. Cicognini (Firenze, 1606 - Venezia, 1651?), è stato uno dei letterati e delle figure più importanti del dramma per musica del XVII secolo, nel quale egli fuse elementi sia di stampo tragico che comico. Il Cicognini fu considerato dai contemporanei il più grande drammaturgo dell'epoca, e il diffuso prestigio della sua fama gli attribuì più di cinquanta opere, alcune delle quali sono invece di dubbia paternità, come la qui presente opera comica " L'amore tra nemici", che recenti studi hanno attribuito a Michele Stanchi. Le sue opere teatrali ebbero una notevole importanza soprattutto per il linguaggio e per le soluzioni sceniche, accostabili a quelle della Commedia dell'Arte, dove venivano utilizzate le tecniche più ricercate e spettacolari.

Elle est identique à l'édition de 1612 d'Artus Thomas d'Embry, la première à contenir des gravures et à offrir les quatre derniers textes. Elle est illustrée d'un grand plan dépliant de Constantinople, d'une double planche légendée « Portraict de l'Armée de l'Empereur Turc rangée en Bataille », de 17 planches pour les tableaux prophétiques, de 62 gravures pleine page représentant les différents habitants de l'Empire ottoman (hommes et femmes) et de 27 planches de portraits de personnalités turques.

Son Histoire des Turcs fut rédigée après la prise de la ville en 1453 et couvre la période 1298 à 1463, décrivant la chute de l'Empire romain d'Orient et la prospérité de l'Empire ottoman. Près de cent ans plus tard, le traducteur Blaise de Vigenère (1523-1596) souligne l'originalité de l'œuvre et du style, qui relate d'une manière inhabituelle l'histoire ottomane. En effet, comme le souligne Jean Balsamo dans son article (« L'Histoire des Turcs à l'épreuve des Essais » in Histoire & littérature au siècle de Montaigne, Droz, 2011), le lecteur ne se trouve plus face à un récit de voyageur : « La traduction de Chalondyle [sic] en revanche, entendait enfin proposer une véritable histoire des Turcs, capable de mettre en lumière le mystère de leur origine et l'extraordinaire « mutation d'empire » qui constituait la prise de Constantinople et leur soudaine hégémonie. Seul un historien en effet était à même de rendre compte du phénomène turc, d'en faire comprendre l'importance historique, égale à celle des Romains [...] sans se perdre dans la bigarrure et l'exotisme des cosmographies merveilleuses. » Rare exemplaire abondamment illustré.

Trois parties séparées avec une page de titre générale et trois faux-titres, dont un pour Pyrame et Thisbé. Les deuxième et troisième parties sont à pagination continue. Reliure en plein maroquin rouge fin XIXème signée Hardy sur le contreplat en lettres dorées. Dos à nerfs janséniste avec titre, lieu et date dorés. Tranches dorées. Riche frise intérieure. Très bel exemplaire au papier bien frais. Cette édition appréciée des œuvres de Viau est la plus jolie des éditions anciennes du poète, elle a été publiée à la demande de Georges de Scudéry qui lui a ajouté une préface et l'apologie de Théophile. Après une longue période de purgatoire et bien qu'il fût très lu de son vivant, Viau fut redécouvert par Théophile Gautier qui le plaça au Panthéon des poètes. Outre sa poésie, on retiendra la traduction très libre, en vers et prose du Phédon de Platon sur l'immortalité de l'âme, et la fameuse tragédie de Pyrame et Thisbé. Son recueil licencieux Le Parnasse satyrique le conduisit à la prison et à marcher pieds nus devant Notre-Dame pour y être brûlé mais sa sentence fut commuée en arrêt d'exil perpétuel. Sa condamnation pour outrage aux mœurs fit grand bruit parmi les intellectuels du temps. Ex-libris gravé du XIXème « ex Schaedis Dict. T. D. R. In secundis voluptas ».

It is illustrated with two portraits of Louis XI and the Duke of Burgundy, and a leaflet table. Binding in full vellum nineteenth environment. Smooth spine with cold title. Mors split tail of 6 cm. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Nouvelle édition dont l'édition est dû à Denys Godefroy, et dont la première parut en 1649. Elle est illustrée de 3 portraits de Louis XI, du Duc de Bourgogne, et de Philippe de Commines, ainsi que d'un tableau dépliant. Reliure en plein velin milieu XIXe. Dos lisse avec titre à froid. Mors fendu en queue sur 6 cm. Une tâche brune en marge externe des feuillets 435 à 445. Oeuvre incontournable engendrant l'histoire moderne, l'ouvrage de Commynes, qui fixe en outre une règle de conduite politique aux Grands du royaume, constitue la plus grande source de cette période. De 1472 à 1483, après avoir été le conseiller du Duc de Bourgogne (Charles le Téméraire), Commynes passera au service de Louis XI, puis de charles VIII et de Louis XII. Il y brillera par ses talents de diplomate, notamment en Italie ; de ce fait, les Mémoires sont aussi une histoire de l'Europe. On oublie trop souvent que sa carrière exemplaire connut un intermède de disgrâce : s'opposant au jeune Charles VIII par ses idées libérales, il rallia la cause du futur Louis XII (complot visant à enlever Charles VIII). Il fut en conséquence arrêté et enfermé dans une cage de fer à Loches durant cinq mois, en 1488. Jusqu'à aujourd'hui, l'oeuvre étant encore étudiée, Les Mémoires de commynes n'ont jamais failli au succès et à l'intérêt. L'édition critique de Denys Godefroy remplaça celle qui avait servi de référence jusqu'alors, la version de Savage. Ex-libris de basane rouge Jules janin. un second ex-libris portant un monogramme sur fond bleu P.B.

        Mosaic marble tile floors from five churches, most or all in Rome]. [Rome?, ca. 1662 or 18th century]. Small folio (26 x 19.5 cm). 40 ink and watercolour drawings (28 round and 12 square, each ca. 11 x 11 cm) showing the decorative patterns and coloured marbles from the floors of 5 churches. Each has a triple-rule border in black ink with a panel at the foot containing the name of the church. Contemporary(?) boards covered with later (ca. 1840?) Storemont on shell marbled paper.

      - A book of 40 detailed colour drawings showing the elaborate patterns in the mosaic marble tile floors of five different churches, with eight examples from each church: Santa Maria Maggiore (1-8), Santi Giovanni e Paolo (9-16), San Marco (17-24), Sant' Alessio (25-32) and Sant' Ivo (33-40). All probably refer to the Roman churches of these names, though the Basilica di San Marco in Venice also has elaborate mosaic floors. Some of the mosaics are in the Mediaeval Italian style called Cosmatesque, but some may date from the Renaissance. Besides a wide variety of triangular, square, rectangular, diamond, hexagonal, and octagonal tiles, there are many cut with circular edges and a few irregular quadrilaterals. Some are assembled to form stars in a hexagonal grid, round sunburst patterns and an endless variety of other patterns. All patterns show a rotational symmetry around the centre point or a repeating pattern in a square or hexagonal grid. The colouring of many of the tiles shows various styles and colours of marble veins.The drawings are difficult to date exactly. The leaves used for the drawings show a single paper stock, very close to Piccard VI, watermarks V.423 & V.424 (Rome 1662). The drawings could have been made as early as ca. 1662, but the lettering of the names of the churches seems more likely to date from the 18th century. In 1752, Monsignor Giuseppe Alessandro Furietti, a prelate from Bergamo, published an illustrated book on mosaics from classical Rome to his own day: De Musivis, Rome, 1752. This marked a new interest in such antiquities, but he illustrates mainly earlier examples and we find little link with the present examples, which were probably drawn before his book appeared. With smudges on a few pages, one slightly affecting the edge of one drawing, but otherwise in very good condition, with only a light marginal water stain in the last few leaves. The front hinge is broken and the spine and edges of the binding are somewhat tattered. Since many floor mosaics have been destroyed or damaged over the centuries, the present book provides a unique historical record of some of the designs.

        Cerere e Fitalo

      1662 - Acquaforte e puntasecca, circa 1662, firmata in lastra in basso al centro. Esemplare nel secondo stato di tre. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana "giglio nel cerchio e grappolo d’uva" (databile alla seconda metà del XVII secolo), con un bel tono di lastra, ampli margini, in perfetto stato di conservazione. L’opera descrive il mito di Cerere che, ospitata da Fitalo nella sua casa, in segno di gratitudine gli dona l’albero di fico che era sino ad allora sconosciuto agli uomini. Alcuni studiosi sostengono che il soggetto sia ispirato dalla Vita di Teseo di Plutarco ed altri che invece l’opera sia più banalmente dovuta alla predilezione dell’artista per il frutto del fico.

Johannes Goedaert (1617-1668) was a famous Dutch landscape and flower painter who lived all his life in Middelburg. "No botanical or zoological drawings are extant. An impression of them however is conveyed by his 'Metamorphosis Naturalis' with its 126 superb engravings. The book describes the results of his investigation into the metamorphosis of insects, accompanied by a large amount of original observations, some of which were prompted by experiments with his own cultures. The book stood model for several other celebrated treatises on the subject, for example Maria Sibylla Merian" (Segal, Flowers and nature, p. 198).

        Observationes Anatomicae.

      Lugduni [Leiden], Jacobum Chouët, 1662. 12mo. Partly uncut in a nice later full calf binding (19th century?) with five raised bands and gilt lettering to spine. Hinges with a bit of wear and small piece of leather lacking on top of spine. Vague previous owner's name in contemporary hand to lower part of title-page. Ex-libris pasted on to pasted down front end-paper. Vague traces after stamp on p. 108. A fine copy. (12), 108 pp. + 3 folded plates. The rare first edition of Steno's early and first major discovery, being the findings of the 3 main Ducts and glands of the eye, the mouth and the nose, among these the first account of the excretory duct of the parotid gland now named Stensen's Duct. He correctly stated that the true purpose of the glands was to secrete fluid and with [the present work] Nicolaus Steno had established the study of glands as a science. (Snorrason). His careful dissections of animal, and later human, brains were revolutionary. He demonstrated that tears are secrated by specific glands, thus striking a deadly blow to the ancient notion of cerebral excretion, even disproving the speculations of scholars such as Descartes, who believed that the corpus pineale (a brain gland) was the connecting point between soul and body.Steno arrived in Holland in March 1660 and was given lodging by the city's physician Gerad Blaes (Latin: Blasius) who himself had studied in Copenhagen and was a friend of Thomas Bartholin. A year later Steno wrote in a letter to Bartholin: After I had been given leave by Blasius to dissect on my own in the museum, I bought a sheep's-head in order to examine the brain. I happened to decide to investigate first the course of the veins and arteries at the mouth by introducing a probe into the vessels. I suddenly discovered that the point of the probe was moving freely in a spacious cavity and struck with a ringing sound against the teeth. Surprised at this, I called my host to hear his opinion. Blasius first said that it was due to force, then that it was one of nature's frequent freaks, and finally he looked up Wharton's book, but found no explanation there. Shortly thereafter, Steno repeated the investigation on a dog and confirmed, there was a duct leading from the gland by the ear to the oral cavity, of a similar kind to the duct from the submaxillary gland found by the English man Thomas Wharton (1610-1673) a few years previously and described in his book Adenographia 1656. Steno was now certain that the gland was a salivary gland and not, as Wharton said in his book and as had been believed for some 1500 year, a kind of sponge intended to absorb surplus materials from the hard rami of the fifth pair of nerves, carry these back to the veins, warm up the outer and inner ear, and fill up the hollow around them. (Snorrason). This discovery led Stensen to consider every fluid in the body as a glandular secretion. He then found a series of glands furnishing fluid to each of the body cavities. He likewise sought the afferent and efferent ducts of secretion. Stensen still used the name lymph for all watery glandular secretions, because he was not yet able to differentiate between them and to specify them chemically and physiologically. In the course of this basic research Stensen presented in his Leiden dissertation new discoveries of glands in the cheeks; beneath the tongue; and in the palate, whose structure of veins, arteries, nerves, and lymph vessels he also described. In his Observationes anatomicae (1662), dealing with his new discoveries concerning the glands, he described the lachrymal apparatus in great detail. DSB 13, 33. Niels Stensen remains one of the most notable scientists in the history of anatomy. His method based on dissection and experiment enabled him to make significant contribution to the understanding of structure and function of human body. Like many successful scientists he was able to make the most of the rather serendipitous discovery of the parotid duct early in his career, soon expanding his research focus into new areas. (Strkalj, Niels Stensen and the Discovery of the Parotid Duct).In the physiology his researches into the anatomy of the glands led to his discovery of the [duct of] parotid gland, one of the three salivary glands near the ear, into the mouth, is still named Steno's duct.''
