A very good tight clean copy, lacking 8 pages of prelims as noted, text complete. "The first part of our work which celebrates the religious value of study of the natural world, had been begun earlier but was revised and extended at this time (1663), while the first section of the second part, dealing with the value of science to medicine, was apparently now newly written. 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).

CASOS FAMOSOS, ACONTECIMIENTOS ADMIRABLES, LEYES, gouierno, trages, Religion, y costumbres de aquellos Gentiles de Asia. TRADVCIDO DE PORTVGVES EN CASTELLANO POR EL LICENCIAdo Francisco de Herrera Maldonado, Canonigo de la Santa Iglesia Real de Arbas. AL SEñOR DON ANTONIO DE VRVTIA Y AGVIRRE, CAVALLEro del Orden de Calatraua, del Consejo de su Magestad en el Real de las Ordenes, &c. [vinheta armoriada]. CON LICENCIA. En Madrid Por Melchor Sanchez. Año de 1664. In fólio (de 29x21 cm) com [xxii] 452, [viii] pags. Encadernação da época inteira de pele (com um excelente trabalho de restauro na lombada) com nervos e ferros no rótulo. Exemplar da 4º edição em língua castelhana (a primeira é de 1620, traduzida pelo mesmo Franscisco de Herrera Maldonado), apresentando 2 brasões armoriados do século xviii um dos quais pertencente a 'Thomas Heath Merchant of Exeter'. Palau 1990 V, 148. [EN] Binding: full contemporary calf with a recent quality repair at spine. Fourth Spanish edition of the Peregrinação [Pilgrimage]. Mendez Pinto (1509-1583) was a Portuguese adventurer, a soldier, sailor, merchant, doctor, missionary and ambassador. He embarked to India in 1537 in a fleet commanded by the son of Vasco da Gama and traveled for 21 years, fought and traded in China, Tartary, Pegu and the neighboring countries, sailing in every sea. Mendes Pinto went to the mouth of the Mekong River and was in Japan before the arrival of St. Francis Xavier. He became later his friend and traveling companion. He traveled extensively in Asia between 1537 and 1557. In 1542 he landed in Japan and gained the favor of a feudal lord, to whom they claim to have given the first firearm to have entered Japan, the Portuguese "arquebus". This is the source of Pinto's claim to be the first westerner to enter Japan. The weapon was rapidly reproduced and had a major impact on the ongoing Japanese civil wars. He is credited for the opening up of Indo-China trade. He joined the Society of Jesus and St. Francis gave him the money with which to build the first Jesuit establishment in Japan. Mendez accompanied the Jesuits as ambassador from the Portuguese Viceroy of India to the King of Bungo. While a number of the details of his work are obviously taken from other accounts, such as the visits to Ethiopia and Tibet, the total picture given of Asia in the first half of the 16th century has undoubted authenticity. This is one of the greatest books by a European traveler in the East and is a classic of Portuguese literature. Palau 1990 V, 148. Location/localizacao: raros

        Articles et Conditions sur lesquelles les Marchands Negotians du royaume supplient tres-humblement le Roy de leur accorder sa declaration, & les graces y contenues pour l'etablissement d'une Compagnie pour le Commerce des Indes Orientales

      Paris: 1664. Quarto. (Moderate soiling to title). Half green morocco over marbled paper-covered boards. A work of primary importance to French commerce and navigation outside of Europe. These are the articles of establishment for the Compagnie des Indes Orientales, which was founded to compete commercially with the British and Dutch East India Companies. Established in 1664, the Compagnie des Indes Orientales held a fifty-year monopoly on French trade in the Indian and Pacific Oceans. After early success, and gaining a foothold in the area, in the end, it was unable to maintain itself financially and was absorbed by the state in 1770. France was slow to develop overseas commerce and establish colonies compared to other European powers, but after Louis XIV reached his majority and assumed full control of his government in 1661 he began a program of aggressive expansion, establishing sugar colonies in the West Indies and challenging the Dutch and Portuguese trading interests in the East Indies - a move made offical by the establishment of this company as a state monopoly.

Dioptrice, et Meteora. and PASSIONES ANIMAE. 3 parts in 1, 4th edition, 1664, each part with its own dated title page and separate pagination but continuous register. Latin text, small 4to, 200 x 155 mm, 8 x 6 inches, engraved portrait frontispiece, publisher's pictorial device on title page, numerous woodcut diagrams and illustrations throughout the first 2 parts, some full page, pages (40), 222, (14), 248, (24), 92, (4), bound in full contemporary calf, blind rules to covers, raised bands and gilt rules to spine, gilt lettered morocco labels, red speckled edges. Some wear and scuffing to covers, lower corners worn, small piece of leather missing on lower cover, spine and hinges rubbed, surface cracks to spine, neat old repair to inner paper hinges, 3 small pale stains in 1 margin, otherwise contents very clean and bright, binding tight and firm. 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.

Titelbladet lite solkigt. En genomgående fuktfläck i nedre halvan av inlagan. Med talrika samtida anteckningar på de interfolierade bladen och enstaka marginalnoteringar. En liten reva i övre marginalen på s. 59. Med J. Trodians, M. Stålbergs, A. G. Sefströms och O. Hallborgs namnteckningar, den första daterad den 5 mars 1664.. Collijn Sveriges bibliografi 1600-talet 219. Även tänkt att ingå som en del i Edenius (1624-66) aldrig färdigutgivna "Opuscula theologica". Verket tycks presentera en metod att memorera bibeln, dess kapitel och verser. Det är av allt att döma den första ägaren som har gjort de många prydliga anteckningarna. Kyrkoherdesonen Johannes Olai Trodian från Segersta i Hälsingland, skrevs in vid Uppsala universitet i oktober 1660. Han prästvigdes 1676 och blev kyrkoherde i Arnö i Uppland 1683 samt dog i pesten 1710. Anteckningarna är förmodligen gjorda av Trodian i samband med Edenius föreläsningar i teologi vid Uppsala universitet. Anders Gustaf Sefström (1790-1861) var pastor i Bjuråker och psalmboksförfattare, representerad i bl.a. "Sions sånger"

        Theoriae motus cometae anni MDCLXIV ea præferens, quæ ex primis obseruationibus ad futurorum motuum prænotionem deduci potuere, cum noua inuestigationis methodo, tum in eodem, tum in comete nouissimo anni MDCLXV ad praxim reuocata.Rome: Fabio di Falco, 1665.

      First editions of these two exceptionally rare Cassini publications on the comet of 1664-5. Cassini observed the comet "in the presence of Queen Christina [to whom the first work is dedicated] and formulated on this occasion a new theory (in agreement with the Tychonian system) in which the orbit of the comet is a great circle whose center is situated in the direction of Sirius and whose perigee is beyond the orbit of Saturn." (DSB).<br/><br/> Cassini's detailed observations of the comet were made with a powerful new telescope. "Through his friendship with the famous Roman lensmakers Giuseppe Campani and Eustachio Divini, Cassini, beginning in 1664, was able to obtain from them powerful celestial telescopes of great focal length. He used these instruments-very delicate and extremely accurate for the time- with great skill, and made within several years a remarkable series of observations..." (ibid). In the preface to the work Cassini describes the telescopes, and the first observations made with them.<br/><br/> The large engraved plate depicts the course of the comet in the southern celestial hemisphere from December 13 1664 through the middle of January of 1665. It also shows the appearance and direction of the comet's tail in a series of nightly dated observations. <br/><br/> The great comet of 1664-5 was observed my many astronomers, including Auzout, Borelli, Fabri, Hooke, Hevelius, and Petit.<br/><br/> The second work, addressed to the archaeologist Falconieri, presents further observations on the comet, and Cassini remarks about the observations made by Auzout and Hevelius. <br/><br/> OCLC lists: Brown (lacking plate) for the first work, and Brown, Cornell, Ohio State for the second.. Two vols in one, folio (286 x 210 mm), pp [iv] 60 [recte 62] [2] 22 [2], with woodcut diagrams and 1 large folding enrgaved plate in first work; contemporary carta rustica, end papers renewed, some leaves with a little damp staining, a few small worm holes mostly to margin, in all a fine copy of this highly rare work

Die beiden äusserst seltenen Pestschriften sind weder in der wichtigsten Medizinbibliothek, der National Library of Medicine, Bethesda, USA, noch in der Barockbibliothek Wolfenbüttel vorhanden, auch nicht bei Waller, Osler, Neu u.a. - Die handschriftlichen Blätter mit Register stammen aus der Zeit. - Der Teils unter dem Pseudonym "Omophrius" publizierende Arzt Christoph Schorer (1618-1671) verfasste zahlreiche astronomische, historische und moraldidaktische Schriften, letztere wurden laut Killy u.a. von Grimmelshausen eifrig benutzt. Schorer studierte in Strassburg, betrieb zugleich auch astronomische Studien und veröffentlichte 1641 einen astrologischen Kalender, von dem 30 weitere Jahrgänge erschienen sind. 1643 brachte er in Basel zu, bereiste darauf Burgund, hielt sich einige Zeit in Montbéliard auf und begab sich hierauf nach Padua, wo er 1654 promovierte. Nach Deutschland zurückgekehrt, ließ er sich an seinem Geburtsort nieder, erwarb dort das Vertrauen des Herzogs von Württenberg. 1655 wurde er Stadtphysikus von Memmingen. Unter den medizinschen Schriften - von denen zweifellos die Pest-Schriften die wichtigsten und seltensten sind - verdient außer den hier noch vorliegenden, auch sein Buch "Medicina Peregrinantium, oder Artzney der Raisenden" von 1666 Erwähnung. (vgl. Killy Bd. X, S 374ff.). Omnibus-volume with 4 medical titles, including 2 very rare tracts on the black death. Contents see above. (III) and (IV) uncited by any bibliographers. Preserved in contemporary half vellum (rubbed, worn, somewhat warped). - Lacking title of (I), some underlinings and annotations. some browning and foxing.

Åhlén & Åhlén Censur och tryckfrihet 16.58. Översatt av militären, pacifisten, mystikern och läkaren Anders Pedersson Kempe (ca 1622-89). Under sin tid som militär i Jämtland blev han alltmer upptagen av religiösa frågeställningar och kom till slutsatser som utmanade kyrkans officiella hållning. Han kallades därför 1663 till förhör inför domkapitlet i Härnösand där i synnerhet hans relation till den religiöse tänkaren och pacifisten Paul Felgenhauer (1593-ca 1677) synades i sömmarna. I förhören var Kempe försiktig, men när han året därpå befann sig i landsflykt i Amsterdam var han mer frispråkig. I "Probatorium" förnekar Felgenhauer treenigheten och i efterord och kommentarer passar Kempe själv på att angripa bl.a. prästerskapet. Kempes skrifter smugglades in i Sverige och han besökte även Sverige från Norge för att sprida sina läror. Så småningom greps Kempe men lyckades fly tillbaka till Norge, varifrån han senare landsförvisades. Sina senare år befann han sig i Tyskland där han verkade som läkare och utgivare av diverse skrifter. Som exempel kan nämnas "Die Sprachen des Paradises" (1688) i vilken Kempe framför tanken att gud i paradiset talade svenska, Adam danska och ormen franska! Kempes böcker förbjöds i Sverige och samlades in för att brännas. En del av upplagan till "Probatorium" blev dock liggande på Riksarkivet, där Klemming fann den och delade ut ett antal exemplar till sina samlarvänner
