        1664 History of Masaniello Revolt in Naples Italy Giraffi English Habsburg Spain

      London : Printed for R. Lowndes ., 1664. - 1664 History of Masaniello Revolt in Naples Italy Giraffi English Habsburg Spain A fine English translation of Alessandro Giraffi’s “An Exact History of the Late Revolutions in Naples.” This first-hand account of the revolt against Habsburg Spain in Naples in 1647. Masaniello, a local Italian fisherman, led a revolt which ransacked armories and prisons in Naples – a historical event that has been retold, painted, and argued for centuries. Masaniello was described as, ".a young man of twenty-seven, beautiful and graceful in appearance, his face was brown and somewhat burned by the sun: black eyes, blond hair, with locks that ran down his neck." (St. John., 68) This fine book, finely rebound in Moroccan red leather, includes a full-page woodcut portrait of Masaniello. This book is considered very rare. The translator, James Howell, was the ‘author of the most curious volumes in English literature’ (Hawkins, Library Catalog, 1990) Item number: #602 Price: $950 GIRAFFI, Alessandro An exact history of the late revolutions in Naples; and of their monstrous successes : not to be parallel'd by any ancient or modern history.

        SERMONS PREACHED BY THAT EMINENT, FAMOUS & GREAT DIVINE HENRY HAMMOND, D.D.

      London: Printed for Timothy Garthwait, 1664. FIRST EDITION. This is a regal copy in both condition and provenance, almost certainly untouched by the Merry Monarch for whom it was bound. The present binding is very similar to those produced by Samuel Mearne (1624-1683) and his workshop for Charles II. Beginning as an apprentice to London binders in 1637, Mearne had his own London bindery by at least 1653. Shortly after the fall of the Commonwealth in 1660, he was appointed Bookbinder to Charles II, and in 1675, Mearne and his son Charles were granted the life-long offices of Bookbinder, Bookseller, and Stationer to the King. Davenport says simply that "Mearne was one of the greatest bookbinders of any time, and apart from the splendid work he did for Charles II, he executed numbers of other bindings, many of which are inlaid and have the leather stained and painted." The present one is simpler, but it is nevertheless a binding well executed by an adroit craftsman. Henry Hammond (1605-60) was a key figure in the Church of England during the interregnum--forming future clergymen at Oxford, caring for his parishioners, and producing theological pamphlets defending the Church from both Puritan and papist. According to DNB, "The new-found confidence of the Restoration church owed much to the theology developed in his writings and to the exemplary character of his life." In addition to gracing a royal library, our copy was later owned by Robert S. Pirie (1934-2015), a lawyer and investment banker who amassed the finest library of 16th and 17th century English literature in private hands during his lifetime. In 1984, he was elected one of the 40 members of the Roxburghe Club, the world's oldest society of bibliophiles.. 325 x 210 mm (12 3/4 x 8 1/4"). [4], 108, 113-320 pp. (complete). FIRST EDITION. FINE CONTEMPORARY CRIMSON MOROCCO, HANDSOMELY GILT IN THE STYLE OF SAMUEL MEARNE, covers panelled with plain rules and floral roll and featuring oblique fleurons at corners, GILT SUPRALIBROS OF CHARLES II on each board, spine intricately gilt in compartments with central fleuron within a lacy frame, lacking fore-edge ties, all edges gilt. Frontispiece "portrait in death" blackened by Edward Marshal after Wenceslas Hollar. Front pastedown with bookplate of Robert S. Pirie and with pencilled notation that this is the Large Paper dedication copy presented to King Charles II. Wing H-600. A few trivial stains to morocco, front joint beginning to show wear (but still a minor defect), one leaf faintly discolored where tear repaired just beneath final line of text (no letters lost or displaced); AN EXTREMELY FINE COPY, the text bright, smooth, fresh, and clean, and the impressive binding lustrous and altogether pleasing. This is a regal copy in both condition and provenance, almost certainly untouched by the Merry Monarch for whom it was bound.

        Cantium Vernacule Kent.

      Amsterdam: c1664 - Size: 530 x 380 mm. Fine condition Copper engraving. Original colour. An attractive map of Kent by the famous Dutch cartographer Blaeu. This English county map is highly decorative with figurative cartouches and heraldic family coats of arms as well as ships on the sea. The map is very detailed and gives many place names, smaller villages or settlements. Rivers, lakes, mountains and woods are also indicated. Jan Blaeu (1596-1673) was a son of a famous Dutch cartographer, Willem Janzoon Blaeu, and he shared his father's passion and continued his work. His Atlas Maior is one of the most extraordinary work within this category ever produced. It is known for its exquisite engraving, calligraphy and colouring as well as heraldic detail, pictorial work and the intricate cartouches, which all amounted to the appeal of this work. In fact it is argued that some of the maps produced by Jan were considered to be the finest published anywhere in the seventeenth century.

        Cerebri anatome: cui accessit nervorum descriptio et usus. [Bound with:] SEBISCH, Melchior. Dissertatio de senectutis.

      London; Strasbourg: Typis Ja. Flesher, Impensis Jo. Martyn & Ja. Allestry; Eberhard Welpen, 1664; 1645. First edition of the "most complete and accurate account of the nervous system which had hitherto appeared, and the work that coined the term 'neurology'" (GM). "With this contribution, [Willis] was entitled to be a member of the notable group of seventeenth-century anatomists that included Valsalva, Malpighi, Leeuwenhoek, and others" (Lilly). "Dissatisfied with the imperfect and fragmentary descriptions in earlier accounts of the brain, Willis devised a comprehensive and comparative program of brain dissections, which he carried out with the aid of his pupils Christopher Wren, Richard Lower and Thomas Millington -- one of the earliest examples of collaborative scientific research in England. Willis classified and described ten pairs of cranial nerves, six of which are still recognized, and was the first to grasp the physiological significance of the "circle of Willis," the circle of anastomosed arteries at the base of the brain by which full circulation to all parts of the brain can be maintained even when the carotid or vetebral arteries are blocked. From his observations of animal brains, Willis hypothesized that the convolutionary complexity of the human cerebral cortex is correlated with man's superior intelligence, and that the cerebellum, a similar structure in all animals, is the source of involuntary action. Willis also coined the term "neurology," which made its first appearance in this work" (Norman). The first 20 chapters describe the brain and nervous system in general, the other chapters being dedicated to the anatomy and physiology of nerves. Wren drew the illustrations of the brain, skull and schemata of the cranial and autonomic nerves for Cerebri Anatome in May 1663 (these were the only drawings by Wren published in his lifetime); Lower drew the 13th plate depicting the blood vessels of the spine and spinal cord, the unnumbered figure showing the trigeminal nerve and the nerves to the extra ocular muscles. This first edition in quarto is of great rarity; several of the great collections, including Osler and Cushing, record only the octavo edition published several weeks later. The second work (BL and Wellcome only on COPAC) is the first edition of the disputation between the Strasbourg professor Melchior Sebisch (1578-1674) and the doctor and scholar G. H. Welsh (1624-1677) on aging. As a faithful galenist, Sebisch discusses the interaction between the necessary heat (the organ of the soul preserving life) and its harmful action (on the moisture whose loss causes the aging of the body). Provenance: From the library of Charron de Ménars (d. 1669), with his arms on the covers. This great library, which included the greater part of the library of Jacques-Auguste de Thou, was acquired by Cardinal de Soubise. Inscribed (where????) by Soubise in black ink. Engraved bookplate with signature of Fr.-J. Moreau, professor at the Faculty of Medicine of Paris (1788-1862); ink stamp of Dr. Alexis Moreau. From the library of Jean Blondelet. "The publication in 1664 of Willis' Cerebri Anatome was a landmark in the history of science ... Prior to Willis' publication there had been only one fairly similar presentation of cerebral anatomy with appropriate vasculature, that of Casserius [Tabulae anatomicae, Venice, 1627]. However, Willis' exhaustive treatise accomplished much more. In his Anatomy of the Brain he presented a method for its removal and dissection, a new numbering and grouping of cranial nerves according to function, extensive descriptions of the brain stem, cerebellum, and basal ganglia, detailed schemas of the vagal and sympathetic nerves to the viscera, discussions of the uses of parts of the brain, and the anatomy of the cerebral circulation with functional considerations. The latter is not only the first clear description of the arterial circle at the base of the brain, but a relatively sophisticated analysis of its dynamic significance accomplished by a study of effects of intravascular injection of colored dyes and of ligation of vessels" (Glaser, Review of Feindel's English translation, Journal of the History of Medicine and Allied Sciences 22 (1967), 336-7). "Willis ... distinguished the white from the gray matter and provided the first precise description of the group of nuclei at the base of the brain that he defined as "striatal bodies." Willis associated motor actions, but also the senses, with these striped structures. He further described various fiber tracts (medial lemniscus, thalamostriatal fibers, thalamocortical projections, pathways descending from the cortex and from the striatal bodies) and provided very clear descriptions of the claustrum, internal capsule and cerebral cortex, identifying for the first time the anterior commissure. "With a remarkable intuition, Willis related the richness and depth of cortical convolutions of the human brain with the superiority of human mental faculties versus those of animals. Further, he accurately described the cranial nerves, from the first to the tenth, on the basis of their foramina of exit from the skull, and he defined the ophthalmic branch of the trigeminal nerve, although he confounded the glossopharyngeal nerve with the hypoglossal nerve. Willis also added the eleventh or spinal accessory nerve and recognized the relationships of the vagal nerve with the lungs and the heart. "Willis studied the peripheral nerves using a microscope, and reached the conclusion that they are not hollow tubes. His studies on blood vessels also led him to deny at last the existence of a rete mirabile in humans. Via injections of alcohol and ink into the internal carotid artery, he and Lower succeeded in accurately tracing the arterial polygon from which cerebral arteries originate, and which a century later would be called the "circle of Willis" by physician Albrecht von Haller. Willis also investigated the pineal gland, discarding Descartes' idea that it is the seat of the soul" (Finger et al (eds.), History of Neurology, p. 153). Willis (1621-75) was born in Wiltshire and educated at the University of Oxford. Although initially interested in theology, he took up medicine during the English Civil War and began to practise after 1646. He built up a thriving practice in Oxford from the mid-1650s onwards, and some contemporaries thought him the most financially successful physician of his time. Willis undertook many dissections in Oxford during the 1650s, assisted by many eminent men, including Wren, Lower and John Locke. Willis' growing local reputation was greatly enhanced by the publication of the Diatribae duae in 1659. His fame as a physician and writer, his staunch Anglicanism, and his brother-in-law John Fell's recent appointment as Dean of Christ Church, made him the natural choice as Sedleian Professor of Natural Philosophy, to which he was elected in 1660. "One important focus of activity was Willis's university lectures. From the very beginning of his tenure as Sedleian Professor, he ignored the statutory injunction to expound Aristotle, and instead gave his own opinions on recent anatomical controversies, on fermentation, and on the action of the circulation in various diseases. Thus were all his younger colleagues and students exposed to his ideas, not just through his books, but through his teaching as well. Ward, for example, recorded on 9 February 1661 that "Dr Willis is now reading about ye succus nervosus"; the professor doubted that the process of nutrition conformed to Glisson's pet idea. In 1664 Lower sent on to Hooke some observations on the stomachs of ruminants, with which Willis had been so taken "that he will make a lecture of it next term." Lower was likewise responsible for the survival of several of Willis's lectures given at Christ Church c. 1661. He copied them for his own use, and then in November 1662 sent a transcription to Boyle, among whose papers in the Royal Society they have survived. About 1664 Lower also lent his text to Locke, who abstracted them into one of his notebooks, now in the Bodleian Library. In the Lower/Boyle manuscript Willis explained his opinions on how the function of the cerebrum and cerebellum resulted from the interactions of particulate spirits drawn from the blood. Dysfunctions such as paralysis, insomnia, convulsions, epilepsy, hysteria, vertigo, and lethargy were similarly to be explained as the interaction of spirits with the circulation. True to the intellectual and local portions of his heritage, Willis cited Harvey's De generatione, and explained muscular motion using the experiment of raising weights with a bladder, the very one that had been performed at Petty's club in 1650. "Neurological lectures such as these started Willis and his colleagues on a new research program. He was dissatisfied with the excessively speculative nature of his teaching, and resolved to explore the brain by dissections, not ratiocination. By January 1662 Lower could report to Boyle that they had begun to cut up several brains. Willis found "most parts of the brain imperfectly described" and intended "to make a whole new draught thereof." Thus began an intensive period of dissections in which, according to Willis, almost no day passed "without some anatomical administration." Whole "hecatombs" of animals were slain in the anatomical court. They dissected horses, sheep, calves, goats, hogs, dogs, cats, foxes, hares, geese, turkeys, fishes, and even a monkey, in addition to human cadavers. The indefatigable worker was Lower, "the edge of whose knife and wit" Willis gratefully acknowledged. Millington and Wren were frequently present at the dissections to "confer and reason about the uses of the parts." Millington especially was Willis's confidant and critic, to whom he privately proposed his conjectures and observations for scrutiny. Other friends followed the work. Wallis participated in some of the initial dissections. Ward passed through Oxford on his way to Stratford about October 1662 and recorded: "Glandules found in ye Braine by some Dr. in Oxford as I was told by Mr. Lower." Lower reported to Boyle their preliminary results on the cerebellum, the medulla oblongata, and the auditory and optic nerves, including the use of anatomical injections. By November 1662 he could write to Boyle that the anatomical part was finished. The following spring Wren drew some "most excellent schemes of the brain, and the several parts of it, according to the doctor's design," and by the end of the summer Allestry was printing the Cerebri anatome. When it appeared early in 1664, it immediately superseded all previous anatomical work on the brain" (Frank, Harvey and the Oxford Physiologists, pp. 179-183). The present work also includes the first appearance of Willis's chemical theory of muscle contraction. "Willis speculated that since muscular contraction occurred only in a very defined locus, it must be caused by substances brought together there for the first time. His candidates were the particles of animal spirits from the nerve fibers, and saline-sulphurous particles from the arterial blood. These joined together briefly to form a "copula." Under proper stimulation from the nervous system, this copula would break apart and explode like gunpowder, intumify the muscle, and thereby cause it to contract. This occurred in all voluntary muscles, as well as in the heart and diaphragm. Thus Willis could explain the pathological effects of such experiments as he, Lower and Boyle had performed of ligating or cutting the cardiac branch of the vagus nerve; the heart eventually failed for lack of animal spirits. "Although in most passages explaining his "explosion" theory of muscular motion, Willis was content to call the arterial component merely "sulphureous" or "saline-sulphureous," on two occasions he explicitly said that the blood supplied "nitrosulphureous particles" to this explosive copula. Thus in heavy exercise, large amounts of nitro-sulphurous particles needed to be supplied by the arterial blood, although it was generally the supply of the other component, spirit particles from the nerves, that was exhausted first. Willis's theory was by no means fully developed, but rather dropped into the neurophysiology at various junctures, together with promises that he would discuss the topic further when he came to write explicitly on muscular motion" (ibid., p. 222). Willis expanded on his "explosion" theory of muscular motion in his Pathologiae cerebri. "Willis followed Cerebri anatome with two more books concerning the brain and nervous system, making them the first comprehensive publications on the subjects published in Europe. Pathologiae cerebri et nervosa ('On the pathology of the brain and nerves') was published in 1667, and De anima brutorum quae homine vitalis ac sensitiva est ('On the soul of brutes which is that of the vital and sensitive of man') in 1672. In his earlier career, Willis concentrated his research and publication on chemistry and combustion, working with collaborators such as Robert Hooke (1635-1703). His first important publication consisted of tracts on fermentation, fevers and urine. It appeared in 1659 under the title Diatribae duae medico-philosophicae ('Two medico-philosophical diatribes'), and cemented his international reputation. Willis was an original fellow of the Royal Society" (Royal College of Physicians).

      Artist: Homann / Doppelmayer JG Johann Babtiste ( - 1724 ) Nuremberg; issued in : Nuremberg; date: 1780 1664 - - technic: Copper print; colorit: original colored; condition: Restored tear at the center; size (in cm): 48 x 56,5 - description: Map shows the "old" world and the surrounding of sun and Moon - vita of the artist: Johann Babtiste Homann (1664-1724) was born in Oberkammlach, the Electorate of Bavaria. Although educated at a Jesuit school, and preparing for an ecclesiastical career, he eventually converted to Protestantism and from 1687 worked as a civil law notary in Nuremberg. He soon turned to engraving and cartography; in 1702 he founded his own publishing house.Homann acquired renown as a leading German cartographer, and in 1715 was appointed Imperial Geographer by Emperor Charles VI. Giving such privileges to individuals was an added right that the Holy Roman Emperor enjoyed. In the same year he was also named a member of the Prussian Academy of Sciences in Berlin. Of particular significance to cartography were the imperial printing privileges (Latin: privilegia impressoria). These protected for a time the authors in all scientific fields such as printers, copper engravers, map makers and publishers. They were also very important as a recommendation for potential customers.In 1716 Homann published his masterpiece Grosser Atlas ueber die ganze Welt (Grand Atlas of all the World). Numerous maps were drawn up in cooperation with the engraver Christoph Weigel the Elder, who also published Siebmachers Wappenbuch.Homann died in Nuremberg. He was succeeded by the Homann heirs company, which was in business until 1848. The company was known as Homann Erben, Homanniani Heredes, or Heritiers de Homann abroad.

        Voyage de la France equinoxiale en l'isle de Cayenne, entrepris par les François en l'année MDCLII

      First edition. Contemporary brown calf, spine in six compartments with blind-ruled compartments and gilt fleurons, remains of a manuscript title label. All edges speckled red, binding skillfully restored. Tear to lower margin of title skillfully restored, a few tiny stains.  The work is divided into three parts: the first relates the establishment of the colony and its journey to Cayenne, the second is a collection of observations on the 15 months spent there by the author and the last is concerned with the country's climate, the fertility of the soil, and the customs and dress of the indigenous peoples. A last part is made up of a Franco-Amerindian dictionary, which is the very first appearance of a lexicon of the Galibi language. Some chapters also refer to Guadeloupe, Barbados and Martinique.Chaplain to the 700 colonists of the expedition sent to Guyana on the 18th May 1652, Antoine Biet gives a precise account of the second attempt at colonization. The attempt failed, and the hundred surviving colonists were forced to flee Cayenne for Surinam in January 1654 (and from there to Barbados), having suffered tropical illness and fierce resistance from the Galibi Indians. According to Boucher de La Richarderie, "no account other than Biet's sheds so much light on the natives of Guyana; he describes them in all their primitive simplicity. The vocabulary of their language is carefully assembled," (Bibliothèque universelle des voyages, 1808).Manuscript ex-libris on front endpaper: "Ce livre appartient à Mr. Adam de Saron [This book belongs to Mr Adam de Saron]."  Chez François Clouzier à Paris 1664 in-4 (17x24cm) (24) 432pp. relié

        Ladimistri nel' archipelago].[The Netherlands(?), ca. 1720?]. Oblong folio (19.5 x 31.5 cm). Pen and blue-black ink-wash drawing on laid paper, showing the city of Edremit, its harbour and fortifications, with an Ottoman and a Dutch(?) ship, and a lighthouse, in a brown thick-thin-thin border, signed in the border below right, but difficult to read (I. P. Sto.?, I. P. Ste.?). Framed (37 x 49 cm).

      - A detailed ink drawing of the harbour of and fortifications of Edremit, an Ottoman port city on the west coast of Turkey. The drawing is made after Johannes Peeter's print Ladimistri nel' archipelago, originally engraved by Lucas Vorsterman the younger and first appearing 1664/65 in the series Diverse vis te[!] delli Dardaneli del' dtrecio come delle città e castelli nel archipelago. The series was published by Jacob (Jacques) Peeters (1637-1695), and the prints were engraved after drawings by his brother Jan (Johannes) Peeters (1625-1677), best known for his drawings of city views engraved by Merian. Johannes Peeters was a pupil of their eldest brother Bonaventura Peeters, a well-known painter and draughtsman, and specialized in maritime scenes.Slightly browned and with a few small and mostly marginal stains. The foremost canon appears to have lost some of its ink, but the drawing is otherwise in good condition. The corners are damaged or discoloured from a previous mounting, far outside the border of the drawing.

        socinianismi confutati tomus tertius

      waesberge amsterdam 1664 - Third volume only of this important work, previously owned by the Guinness family,Mariga (the former Princess Marie Gabrielle of Urach. Present to her son Patrick. Velum cover. "Socinianism: “sulcken schrikkelijcken ende grouwelicken qua- edt” [this terrible and dreadful evil] No single movement has been as controversial in seventeenth-century Europe as Socinianism, named after the Italians Lelio (1525-62) and Fausto Sozzini (1539-1604). 1 In the eyes of established Christendom this radical- liberal strand of Protestantism was an unprecedented theological and socio- political menace. This was not only the case in Poland, where until their expulsion in 1658 the Socinians had their spiritual and administrative center in Raków, but also, and especially, in those countries where Socinianism was favorably received: in Germany, in the Dutch Republic, and in England. 2 Socinians (they called themselves “Brothers” or “Christians”, and after 1650 “Unitarians” or “Polish brethren”) were strongly rationalistic. Faith should be consistent with reason; believing was a matter of assensus (consent) rather than fiducia (trust); although the Holy Scriptures contained truths that were supra rationem (beyond reason), these were not contra rationem (contrary to reason). Dogmas of which the biblical foundation was considered doubtful were rejected, i.e. those of the Trinity, the divinity of Christ and of the Holy Spirit, original sin, unfree will, expiation, infant baptism, God’s foreknowledge ( praescientia ) and predestination ( praedestinatio ), a life in Hell after death, and the resurrection of the dead; capital punishment and military service were not accepted. Nevertheless, Socinianism was more than a protest movement: its members aimed for a serious, rational and ethical daily practice of their faith. On the basis of an optimistic anthropology it was considered possible to observe Christ’s commandments and in this way, taking Him as an example, to attain salvation. " [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Of particular significance to cartography were the imperial printing privileges (Latin: privilegia impressoria). These protected for a time the authors in all scientific fields such as printers, copper engravers, map makers and publishers. They were also very important as a recommendation for potential customers.In 1716 Homann published his masterpiece Grosser Atlas ueber die ganze Welt (Grand Atlas of all the World). Numerous maps were drawn up in cooperation with the engraver Christoph Weigel the Elder, who also published Siebmachers Wappenbuch.Homann died in Nuremberg. He was succeeded by the Homann heirs company, which was in business until 1848. The company was known as "Homann Erben", "Homanniani Heredes", or "Heritiers de Homann" abroad. "
