This edition is the first to contain the announcement of "Boyle's Law". "Boyle's experimental proof of the basis of physical property of air, namely that the volume of gas varies inversely with the pressure, constitutes one of the greatest contributions to physical science... it was further proved that air has weight, and the function of combustion and respiration in aire, the conveyance of sound and the elasticity of air all explained" (PMM)..

        Magia Universalis Naturæ et Artis, sive, Recondita naturalium & artificialium rerum scientia, cujus ope per variam applicationem activorum cum passivis, admirandorum effectuum spectacula, abditarumque inventionum miracula, ad varios humanæ vitæ usus, eruuntur. Opus quadripartitum

      Four finely engraved frontis. & 91 engraved plates (some folding and/or double-page). Some music printing in Vol. II. Four vols. Small 4to, cont. richly blindstamped pigskin over wooden boards, sides richly stamped in a panel design, each upper cover stamped "R.W.A.T." & dated "1662", orig. clasps & catches. Würzburg: H. Pigrin [Vol. I], J. Hertz [Vols. II & III], & heirs of J.G. Schönwetter, [Vol. IV], 1657-57-58-59. First edition, and a very fine and complete set in matching bindings of contemporary pigskin over beveled wooden boards, dated 1662, with the original catches and clasps. Complete sets in such fine condition are rarely encountered on the market. This is Schott's greatest and most complete work on the wonders and marvels of science and technology. Much of the work is concerned with applying science and mechanics to art, music, theater, cryptography, etc. Volume I is devoted to optics and optical phenomena, and deals with projection, illumination, perspective, optical illusions, the camera obscura, the telescope and the microscope. The second volume is devoted to acoustics and phonetics, music theory and instruments, and has a number of ingenious musical devices driven by water, wind, weights and springs, etc. Volume III is concerned with mechanics, statics, hydrostatics, pneumatics, and their various applications. This volume includes a report on Guericke's experiments with the vacuum (p. 604) several years before the publication of his Experimenta Nova in 1672. The final volume deals with magnetism and magnetic devices, with further chapters on cryptography, pyrotechnics, physiognomy, chiromancy, divination, etc. Gaspar Schott (1608-66), a German Jesuit, studied under Athanasius Kircher and was his chief collaborator, disciple, and publicist. He "became the center of a network of correspondence as other Jesuits, as well as lay experimenters and mechanicians, wrote to inform him of their inventions and discoveries. Schott exchanged several letters with Guericke, seeking to draw him out by suggesting new problems, and published his later investigations. He also corresponded with Huygens and was the first to make Boyle's work on the air pump widely known in Germany... "Schott's chief works, the Magia universalis and the two companion volumes...are huge, uncritical collections, mines of quaint information in which significant nuggets must be extracted from a great deal of dross. Like many of his time, Schott believed that the principles of nature and art are best revealed in their exceptions. This makes him a useful source on the history of scientific instruments and mechanical technology."-D.S.B., XII, pp. 210-11. A very crisp set. ❧ Ashworth, Jesuit Science in the Age of Galileo, p. 27-"The seventeenth century offered no better source on how to make a cipher machine, a magnetic clock, or a burning lens." Ferguson II, p 340. .

        Principe Perfecto y Ministros Ajustados. Documentos politicos y morales. En Emblemas

      Lyon: en Leon de Francia, a costa de Horacio Boissat y George Remeus, 1662. 4to.; 21 hs., 184 pp. + 56 pp. + 56 pp. + 111 pp. Ejemplar falto de portada, pero con los 80 emblemas grabados, al comienzo de cada capítulo, con buenos márgenes y en buen estado de conjunto. Encuadernación de época en piel, ligeramente fatigada. Uno de los textos políticos mas interesantes del Siglo de Oro. La presente es la tercera impresión, idéntica a la segunda de 1661, a excepción de la dedicatoria, esta vez dirigida a Alonso Pérez de Guzmán, Patriarca de las Indias, de quien Mendo era Capellán. Es significativo de su rareza el hecho de que hasta nuestros dias la obra del jesuíta Andrés Mendo siga sin gozar de una edición crítica y de un estudio riguroso que revele la verdadera hermenéutica del texto. [Vid. Pedro F.Campa: Emblemata Hispanica. Durham,1990. SL4]. # Praz, 420. # Landwehr, 507a.

        Das von Moskowitischen Zaar Alexei Michaelewiz am nähern, mit mehr als 100000 Mann hart-belägert gewesen- und durch Gottes sonderbaren Beystand erhaltene Riga, Gott zu Lobe, ihren Beschützeren zu Ehren und ihm Selbsten, wie auch anderen, zum Heyl-bringenden Gedächtnisse beschrieben von Ernst Müllern.

      Giessen, Anton Utz, 1662. Folio. 24 s. Tagen ur band. Ur Ericsbergs bibliotek. Enstaka fläckar, något större på s. 3. VD17 1:639990B. Utkom även i kvarto. Lång hyllningsvers, med tryckt dedikation till Magnus Gabriel De la Gardie och Simon Gründel Helmfeld. Medan Karl X Gustav var upptagen nere i Polen passade tsar Aleksej på att anfalla de svenska provinserna Livland och Ingermanland. Anfallet inleddes den 4 juli 1656 och Livland erövrades snabbt men vid Riga tog det stopp. En belägring inleddes den 22 augusti men trots tidvis kraftig beskjutning var staden aldrig allvarligt hotad, då sjövägen aldrig blev avskuren. Den 5 oktober avbröts belägringen och de ryska trupperna retirerade. Magnus Gabriel De la Gardie residerade vid tiden i Riga som generalguvernör och högste befälhavare över Livland. Generalmajoren Simon Grundel Helmfeld var hans närmaste officer och, till skillnad från sin överordnade, militärt kompetent. Ernst Müller (1627-81) från Marburg var präst i Giessen men hade dessförinnan följt svenska armén som fältpräst. Han skrev även en "Kriegs- und Friedens-Posaune", 1662

        Sententie gepronuncieert den 25 jan. 1662 tot Amsterdam iegens Isaac Coeymans, Koopman burger der selver stadt

      Rotterdam: Floris Willemsen 1662 Rotterdam: Floris Willemsen, 1662. (DUTCH WEST INDIA COMPANY) 4to. 7 pp. Sewn. Slightly age-darkened, but sound. Asher 315 . A very rare pamphlet related to the Dutch West India Company and its settlements in Guinea, offering a glimpse of the growing competition among European powers for the slave trade between West Africa and the West Indies. Competition was particularly sharp between the powerful Dutch West India Company and the Danish African Company, which had also recently established settlments in Guinea. Against this background emerges the strange story of one Isaac Coymans, an Amsterdam merchant who plotted to murder the settlers of a Dutch colony and turn it over to the Danish Crown. He was tried and convicted, and this rare pamphlet publishes the sentence of the court: Coymans was imprisoned for six years, banished for life from the 7 Dutch Provinces, and fined 20,000 florins.It is rare: OCLC locates only one copy in the United States (Harvard)

        A collection of 7 double page maps of Denmark, 1 double page map of Hven, 4 double page maps and plans of Uraniborg and 10 single page prints of instruments. Latin text verso.

      Amsterdam 1662 In the history of the house of Blaeu this Tycho Brahe suite of prints is unique. Tycho Brahe is one of the truly great figures in the history of astronomy. The founder of the company Willem Janszoon Blaeu (1571 - 1638) studied cartographic science for six months in the early 1590's underTycho Brahe at the latter's observatory at Uraniborg on the Danish island of Hven. As a tribute, William's son Joan published in 1659 and later in his monumental "Atlas Major" this set of maps, plans, views and instruments relating to Tycho Brahe. Also included in this collection are the seven maps of Denmark by Blaeu. A complete set including the extra maps and not contained in an atlas, this is a collection seldom offered for sale.. All maps and prints are in an excellent condition. "Old" Koeman Bl. 56, William B. Ginsberg "Maps and mapping of Norway 1602 - 1855" see entry 2, Mingroot-Ermen "Scandinavia in old maps and prints" no. 26 and 41, Benedicte Gamborg Briså "Northward Bound At The Far Edge Of The World" Nordkappmuseet 2010, page 26 illustrated
