DESCARTES René
" - Chez Théodore Girard, à Paris 1664, in-4 (17,5x23,5cm), (70p.) 448pp. (8p.), relié. - Véritable édition originale dont le privilège a été partagé entre plusieurs éditeurs : Charles Angot, Jacques et Nicolas Le Gras et Théodore Girard. Une traduction latine avait été publiée à Leyde en 1662 par Florent Schuyl (1619-1669), à partir d'une mauvaise copie du texte comme le précise dans sa préface Claude Clerselier (1614-1684) qui possédait le manuscrit original de Descartes. L'ouvrage est illustré de 49 figures d'optique et d'anatomie réalisées par MM. de Gutschoven et de La Forge, marquées « G » ou « F » en fonction de l'illustrateur. Reliure de l'époque en plein veau brun, dos à cinq nerfs orné de caissons et fleurons dorés, roulette dorée sur les coupes et les coiffes, toutes tranches mouchetées de rouge. Quelques très habiles restaurations au niveau des coiffes, des mors et des coins. Petite mouillure marginale portant atteinte au premier cahier. Quelques taches d'eau sur la dernière garde ombrée en tête, tout comme le dernier feuillet de texte. Plusieurs petites annotations et dessins à la plume du temps sur les gardes et contreplats. Ce Traité de l'Homme a été conçu par Descartes conformément aux préceptes de son Discours de la méthode : en partant des connaissances anatomiques qui sont les siennes, il explique les différentes fonctions physiologiques humaines et les lois mécaniques qui les régissent. L'ouvrage eut une influence considérable sur le matérialisme du siècle suivant, ainsi que sur la médecine des XVIII et XIXème siècles. - Photos sur www.Edition-originale … [Click Below for Full Description]

(76),180 pp. Contemporary full vellum with giltstamped label and handwritten title to spine. Edges sprinkled in red. First edition of the first comprehensive work dedicated to the subject of wages, rarely even treated previously other than in passing. "Zacchia regards wages as the reward for any description of work, and he gives very little thought to workmen's wages. He limits himself to the statement that an adequate wage is fixed by a monarch or by law, by custom or contract, and failing these by a judge, who in fixing them should take account of the ability of the workman, the quality of his work, and the price of food. Zacchia studies the judicial effects on wages of alterations in the value of money" (Palgrave). The appendix, separately published in Venice, contains a century of legal decisions pertaining to the matter discussed in Zacchia's book. - Half-title waterstained, some browning or staining throughout due to paper. Contemporary handwritten ownership at lower edge of title page. Still a very good copy of this rare work. Kress p. 1150. Kress, Italian 169. Goldsmiths' 1425. Cf. Einaudi 6102 (1679 edition). Palgrave III, 689.

DESCARTES René (1596-1650)
MICHEL BOBIN ET NICOLAS LE GRAS, 1664. Legatura coeva in pelle screziata, titolo ed eleganti fregi in oro al dorso, tagli maculati. 16 pagine non numerate, compreso il frontespizio con titolo, fregio tipografico e nota di possesso "Balidaret"; 260-31-(1b.)-30 pagine numerate; 1 carta bianca finale. All'interno, numerose illustrazioni nel testo, di cui 5 a piena pagina. Prima edizione, seconda tiratura con titolo cancellato, di questo importante testo fondato sulle influenti teorie sulla fisica basate sui vortici e redatte prima del 1630. Il suo grande successo fu dovuto allo sviluppo di un sistema di fisica basato su una semplice teoria della materia e da alcune semplici leggi, molto simili alle leggi sul movimento di Newton, che gli consentì di tenere conto di tutte le proprietà conosciute della luce. Il primo tentativo di Descartes di spiegare la formazione del mondo fisico fu composto nel corso degli anni 1630, "L'Homme", ma soppresso dopo la condanna di Galileo. In esso Descartes ha dato il suo conto di cosmogonia rigorosamente in termini della materia in movimento, rendendo le leggi del moto le ultime leggi della natura. Nell'opera, la sua teoria del vortice spiega la stabilità delle orbite planetarie in un modo che presenta un quadro intuitivo plausibile di movimento orbitale che non richiede forze misteriose che agiscono a distanza; Inoltre spiega il moto in termini di nozioni fisiche quantificabili fondamentali, vale a dire la forza centrifuga e le tendenze rettilinee della materia in movimento. In altre parole, la teoria eliocentrica deriva da una teoria molto semp … [Click Below for Full Description]

All'interno, numerosi diagrammi e figure nel testo, 4 tavole fuori testo, incise e ripiegate, raffiguranti particolari del compasso descritto. Prima edizione. Paolo Casati, scienziato piacentino dell'ordine dei Gesuiti, fu matematico e rettore dell'Università di Piacenza. Le sue opere si collocano nel movimento di pensiero e studi che ebbe come riferimento il lavoro di Galileo Galilei. Nel testo in esame, l'autore descrive il compasso di proporzione volendo integrare la celebre opera di Galileo " Il compasso geometrico", strumento del quale Galileo fu unico inventore; nella prefazione, Casati ricorda quanto fosse difficile trovare libri sull'uso del compasso: "havuto fortuna di vedere mai alcun autore, fuorché il Galilei, di cui ventidue anni sono nella libreria nostra del Collegio Romano mi capitò un picciolo libretto di questa materia da me allhora poco inteso". Riccardi: "Opera utile per molte operazioni aritmetiche, fatte con grandissima facilita".
