      Frankfurt/Main, Balthasar Christoph Wust, 1664.. (2), 123, (7) SS. (2), 82, (6) SS. Marmorierte Broschur der Zeit (Rücken fehlt). 8vo.. Seltene dritte deutsche Ausgabe (zuvor 1660, 1661) des bekannten, bis weit ins 18. Jh. wiederaufgelegten Traktats mit der Erfindung und Anwendungsweise des Wunderheilmittels "Pulvis sympatheticus" (ferrum sulfuricum siccum). Sir Kenelm Digby (1603-65) führte ein abenteuerliches Leben, war als Diplomat aktiv und fuhr auch als Kaperkapitän zur See. Nach dem Tode seiner Frau zu den Naturwissenschaften hingezogen, führte er zahlreiche chemische Experimente durch. "In 1657 his increasingly poor health led Digby to take the waters at Montpellier, where he gave his famous account of the 'powder of sympathy', which cured wounds by being rubbed on the weapon that inflicted them. It was a strong solution of vitriol (copper sulfate) in rainwater, which could be improved by drying in the sun and by mixture with gum tragacanth" (DSB IV, 95). "The discourse on the powder of sympathy, one of the most famous of Digby's productions" (Ferguson VI, 22), erschien zuerst 1658 in Paris (in französischer Sprache), dann im selben Jahr in London auf Englisch und hernach in der Übersetzung von H. Hupka auf Deutsch. Der 2. Teil (neu in dieser Ausgabe) mit dem Zwischentitel: "Petri Servii von Spoleto [...] außführliches Bedenken von des insgemein so genannten Waffen-Salben". "Ce P. Servius, de Spolette, ne serait-il pas le moine qui vendit le secret au chevalier Digby?" (Caillet). - Einband stärker berieben und lädiert; Deckel gelockert; einige Wurmgänge im Text.

      London, printed for G. Dawson, 1664.: . London, printed for G. Dawson, 1664.. Or The Touchstone of a Golden Temperature: Or the Philosophers Stone to make a golden temper. Wherein the foure complexions, sangume, cholericke, phligmaticke, melancholicke, are succinctly painted forth, and their externall intimates laid open to the purblind eye of ignorance it self, by which every one may judge of what complexion he is, and answerably learne what is most sutable to his nature. 1664, edition not stated. Small 8vo, approximately 150 x 95 mm, 6 x 3¾ inches, engraved pictorial extra title page showing 2 representatives of Oxford and Cambridge universities holding aloft the optic glass, dated 1663, engraved plate at page 77 shows a chart of the four humours underneath 2 small views of the colleges of Oxford and Cambridge, pages: (26), 168, bound in modern quarter calf over marbled sides, blind rules to spine, gilt lettered morocco label from previous binding, new endpapers. Engraved extra title page laid down on paper, fore-edge margin trimmed close, printed title page discreetly strengthened at fore-edge and browned in margins, name on title page and on reverse, manuscript note on reverse of engraved plate also, 1 letter just showing through, fore-edge margin of engraved plate trimmed close, some other margins trimmed, one side-note shaved, some pages lightly browned, a few inner margins, including inner margin of engraved plate, expertly strengthened with archival tissue, hardly noticeable, a couple of gatherings tightly bound, all still easily readable, 1 lower corner torn off, no loss, a little light brown staining to 1 page, all still legible, couple of worm holes in 3 fore-edge margins, faint water-stain in fore-edge margin of last 40 pages, binding tight and firm. A good copy of a scarce book. Thomas Walkington (c.1575–1621) was a Church of England clergyman. His work on Galen's four temperamental types was first published in 1607 and 'went beyond the usual expository tradition of such treatises... Lively, witty, and concerned at least as much to entertain as instruct, it foreshadowed the literary culmination of the tradition in Burton"s Anatomy of Melancholy' (ODNB). It contains an early reference to the dangers of tobacco. (Krivatsy, 17th Cent.

        Voyage de la France equinoxiale en l?isle de Cayenne

      Including a dictionary of the Galibi language. 1664. Paris. Francois Clousier. In 4to (230 mm x 170 mm). 1 [blank] + 12 ff. + 432 + 1 [blank]. Excellent copy in contemporary calf, raised bands to spine, lettered and tooled in gilt, gently worn. Scattered foxing and light browning, else fine. First edition. In 1652 Father Biet sailed towards Cayenne to visit the French settlement under the command of Royville (and most immediately the Abbe de L? Isle-Marivault, although he never reached his destination, leaving Biet as head of the Spiritual mission), the expedition consisted of 600 men. During his time abroad Biet made trips to Barbados, Martinique and Guadalupe. The work is divided into three parts: the first deals with the journey to Cayenne and the French settling of the colony; the second with the 15 months of the duration of the expedition, the richest in details on the experiences of the settlers; and the third with the natural history, fertility of the land, and ethnological aspects of the natives, their costumes, language and manners. On pp. 339 ? 432 there is a dictionary of the Galibi language. The work is rather hard to find, and much sought after as a fundamental source of information, virtually unparalleled by contemporaneous reports. Leclerc, 165. Sabin, 5269. Chadenat, 18.

      *** Kort over øen Femern samt et del af det tyske fastland fra Grossenbrode til Heiligenhafen. Kobberstik. 23 x 29,5 cm. Både titelkartouche og dedikationskartouche er koloreret. 18 linjers tekst på hollandsk under kortet samt 10 linjer på bagsiden. [Amsterdam, Johannes Blaeu, ca. 1664]. Papirmål : 54 x 33,5 cm. Papiret er renset.. Johannes Mejer (1606-1674), kartograf fra Husum i Slesvig.I perioden 1638 til 1648 opmålte han Slesvig og Holsten. En række af disse kort blev gengivet i bogen "Newe Landesbeschreibung der zwey Herzogthümer Sleswich und Holstein" med tekst af Caspar Danckwerth. Kortene var i sort / hvid og en kolorering vil derfor være senere. Oplagets størrelse kendes ikke, men der er vidnesbyrd om, at udover de aftalte eksemplarer blev der - uden Mejers godkendelse - fremstillet ialt ca. 21000 enkelttryk af hans kort.I 1656 erhvervede Johannes Blaeu i Amsterdam kobberpladerne, og han anvendte dem nogle år senere i sine store Atlasudgivelser på latin, fransk, hollandsk, tysk og spansk. I Blaeus udgaver har Johannes Mejers kort fået en titel på latin (i stedet for tysk) samt tekst på bagsiden - og de fleste eksemplarer er koloreret i samtiden.Johannes Mejers kort over Slesvig og Holsten fik en lang levetid: Frem til omkring år 1800 var de grundlaget for alle andre kort over Hertugdømmerne

This work is concerned with geology, mineralogy, mining, astronomy, chemistry, and physics.

There are also sections on distillation (with some fine illustrations of distillation equipment) and glass-making. A fine and complete copy from the "Fuerstlich Auerspergsche Fideicommisbibliothek zu Laybach." Printed title with minor marginal dampstaining. ❧ Ferguson, I, p. 467. Hoover 483.

ESTC R26204, Wing M2666. Fully collates: [8] To the Reader, 1-478 Part I & Part II of A Modest Enquiry, [22] Contents of Part I & Part II, [1] Title page to the Apology, 479-567 Apology, [4] Contents of the Apology.

Stamp for Highbury College (Portsmouth, Hampshire, UK) on verso of title page [laid in loose is plate showing the book was presented in June 1878 to Airedale College, London]. Boards are rubbed, bumped and scuffed but still quite handsome. Altogether, a very good+ copy of a scarce and important work by one of the few 17th century Cambridge Platonists to publish extensively. Full title: 'A Modest Enquiry Into The Mystery of Iniquity - The First Part, Containing a Careful and Impartial Delineation of the True Idea of Antichristianism in the Real and Genuine Members Thereof, Such as are Indeed Opposite to the Indispensible Purposes of the Gospel of Christ, and to the Interest of His Kingdome, together with Synopsis Prophetica, Or The Second Part of the Enquiry Into The Mystery of Iniquity, Containing a Compendious Prospect Into Those Prophecies of Holy Scripture, Wherein the Reign of Antichrist, or The Notorious Lapse or Degeneracy of the Church in All Those Points Comprised in the Idea of Antichristianism Is Prefigured or Foretold, together with The Apology of Dr. Henry More, Fellow of Christ's College in Cambridge, Wherein Is Contained As Well a More General Account of the Manner and Scope of His Writings, As a Particular Explication of Several Passages in His Grand Mystery of Godliness.' Scholars Thomas Lennon, John Nicholas and John Davis wrote: '[More's] Modest Enquiry Into The Mystery of Iniquity (1664), the first of several onslaughts against the Romanist menace, was a large-scale examination of Antichristianism, and an exposé of the Antichristian practices of the 'Imperious Lady of Rome.' At the same time, the Enquiry was a vigorous defense of the Church of England against the same charge of Antichristianism made by Protestant nonconformists who were suffering under the impositions of Charle's parliament, and perhaps more predictably, it defended Anglicanism against the traditional Catholic charge of schism." - Problems of Cartesianism. The second part of the work is the 'Synopsis Prophetica'; the third the 'Apology.' [SPD746] [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Typis Danielis Elzevirii. 1664 - Amstelodami (Amsterdam), Typis Danielis Elzevirii. A°.[msterdam],1664. In 24 de 310pp. incluant la page de titre, reliure en plein maroquin rouge vif postérieure, dos à 5 nerfs à la janséniste, filets d'encadrement estampés formant des caissons, titre et date dorés à la tête et à la queue du dos, pointillés dorés sur les coupes, roulettes dorés sur les bordures des contreplats, armoiries dorées au centre des plats au nom de la Bibliothèque du Comte de Nedonchel de Tournai, ex-libris héraldique au nom du château de Boussu à Monsieur le Comte de Nedonchel, lettrine historiée et gravure en bandeau en début de volume, culs de lampe en début et fin de volume, intérieur frais, ouvrage non rogné, bon exemplaire. Martial naquit vers 40 et décéda vers 104 après Jésus Christ. Il fut célèbre pour ses Epigrammes. Natif d'Espagne, en 64 après Jésus Christ il s'installa à Rome, espérant pouvoir faire fortune grâce à ses talents d'écrivain. Il trouva du soutient auprès de compatriotes originaires tout comme lui d'Espagne, tels que Sénèque et son neveu Lucain pour lequel il travailla en tant que secrétaire et archiviste. Il trouva également refuge et soutient auprès de Quintilien et de Pline le jeune. En 80, il écrivit le ''Liber spectalorum'', à l'occasion de l'inauguration du théâtre Flavien. En 84, il publia les ''Xenia'' et ''Apophoreta''. Domitien le fit tribun militaire et chevalier, lui permettant enfin d'acquerrir une certaine aisance financière. En 98, il quitta Rome et retourna dans sa ville natale, vivant dans une villa jusqu'à sa mort. Son oeuvre principale est composée de 1500 épigrammes réparties en 15 livres. Parfois flatteuses, dans le but de s'attirer les bonnes grâces des puissants, elles sont souvent obscènes et dépeignent toutes les couches sociales de la société romaine, sans concession et ironie, avec leurs travers et leurs tares.

In addition, he made “significant original contributions” to cardiology, endocrinology, and gastroenterology... Willis published six books throughout his life, with one posthumous publication.

        Discorsi politici del Signor Fabio Albergati ne i quali viene riprovata la dottrina politica di Gio. Bodino, e difesa quella d'Aristotile.

      Giacomo Dragondelli 1664 - Rome, Giacomo Dragondelli, 1664. In 4 de 4 ff. n. ch.-644pp.-[28] ff. n. ch. (index), reliure en plein parchemin souple de l'époque, dos orné de doubles filets dorés et d'étoiles dorées, titre et nom de l'auteur manuscrits à 1'encre noire sur la tête du dos, étiquette contrecollée sur la queue du dos avec la lettre E manuscrite à l'encre noire dessus, doubles filets dorés d'encadrement sur les plats avec à chaque angle interne un fer doré, chiffres et nom d'appartenance manuscrits à l'encre noire sur le premier contreplat, étiquette avec des chiffres manuscrits inscrits dessus contrecollée sur le premier contreplat, lettres et chiffres barrés à 1'encre noire sur la page de garde, cachet ovale bleu sur la page de titre, quelques rousseurs et piqûres, lettrines historiées, intérieur frais, agréable et bel exemplaire. Troisième et dernière édition. L'auteur (1538-1606), fut un écrivain et légat pontifical, auteur politique modéré d'une très vaste culture, reconnu et respecté, il eut d'importantes charges auprès des papes Sixte V et Innocent IX. Il publia également en 1583 ''Del modo di ridurre a Pace l'inimicizie private'', ouvrage dans lequel il s'oppose et condamne la pratique du duel. Il est aussi l?auteur de ''Repubblica Regia'' publié posthume par son fils à Bologne en 1627. Dans le présent ouvrage il renonce à une argumentation basée sur la doctrine religieuse, développant une argumentation et une refléxion fondées sur des critères juridiques, débouchant sur l'élaboration d'une curieuse mais néanmoins très intéressante théorisation d'une forme de dictature démocratique, utopie d'empreinte catholique et communautaire. Les ''Discorsi politici" sont considérés comme une des oeuvres politiques les plus importantes de la première moitié du XVIIème siècle. Fabio Albergati, reprenant les arguments de Possevino ainsi que la condamnation par l'Eglise de la Contre-Reforme de l'ouvrage ''La République" écrit par Jean Bodin, élabore une brillante réfutation des thèses et des concepts présents dans cet ouvrage, soutenant tout au contraire que le souverain est > et que la forme monarchique contrairement à ce qu'affirme Jean Bodin, ne peut étre tempérée, ce dernier étant accusé d'être un crypto-calviniste et d'être trop favorable à la tollérance.

This immense compilation—which, in the course of expounding its theme, divulged a vast number of cures which Boyle had come across and tried—was to prove his most extensive medical work and it was widely cited in the debates on medical practice of the time. Boyle also wrote extensively on the application of science more generally, and some sections of these writings were to be published as the second section of part 2 of Usefulness in 1671 (ODNB).

A very good copy of an early collected edition. René Descartes (1596 – 1650) was a highly influential French philosopher, mathematician, scientist, and writer. Dubbed the "Founder of Modern Philosophy", and the "Father of Modern Mathematics", much of subsequent western philosophy is a reaction to his writings, which have been closely studied from his time down to the present day. His influence in mathematics is also apparent, the Cartesian coordinate system used in plane geometry and algebra being named after him, and he was one of the key figures in the Scientific Revolution.

        Properties in the settlement of Trois-Rivières. Manuscript document signed twice

      Trois-Rivières (Quebec): 16 May, 1664. Lande, Creditability of Land, #286. Good/A leaf from the register of Trois-Rivières, signed by the first governor of New France, Saffray Mézy, and by François Laval, as Bishop of Pétrée. Trois-Rivières, at the confluence of the St. Lawrence and St. Maurice rivers, was the second city to be founded in New France (after Quebec City, before Montreal) and – thanks to its strategic location – played an important role in the colony and in the fur trade. The settlement became the seat of a regional government in 1665, the year following this document. The text, which breaks off mid-sentence, ratifies the ownership of a property by jacques Ménard and his wife, Catherine Forestier. The document names Ménard's neighbors, Guillaume Pépin, Antoine Desrosiers, and Alexandre Raoul. A second paragraph awards property to one Pierre Dizy de Montplaisir, and it lists his neighbors, Jacques Hertel and Médard Chouard. 240 x 355 mm; one leaf, extracted. Professionally reinforced on four sides and on horizontal fold with Japan paper. Text quite faded but legible. Marginal stains.

Wherein the foure complexions, sangume, cholericke, phligmaticke, melancholicke, are succinctly painted forth, and their externall intimates laid open to the purblind eye of ignorance it self, by which every one may judge of what complexion he is, and answerably learne what is most sutable to his nature. 1664, edition not stated.

His work on Galen's four temperamental types was first published in 1607 and 'went beyond the usual expository tradition of such treatises...

It contains an early reference to the dangers of tobacco. (Krivatsy, 17th Cent. Printed Books in the National Library of Medicine, No. 12582).
