A Paris, chez Olivier de Varennes, 1664. In-12, reliure époque parchemin ivoire souple, dos lisse, titre à l'encre, [8] ff., 77 pp., vignette au titre, bandeaux et lettrines gravés sur bois. Déch. sur 2 cm. sans perte p. 75, rousseurs éparses, reliure en excellent état, bonne condition. Rare ouvrage caractéristique de la galanterie littéraire française de la seconde moitié du XVIIe siècle. C’est en ce sens que l’historien René Godenne (Histoire de la nouvelle française aux XVIIe et XVIIIe siècle, Genève, 1970, p.61) le cite parmi d’autre pièces, précisant qu’ « au cours des années 1659-1671, divers recueils de pièces galantes contribuent à répandre le goût de la galanterie, en offrant de nombreux modèles de ses manifestations les plus courantes : lettres, billets, énigmes, rébus, détails des principaux canons à observer dans l’expression des sentiments amoureux, etc ». Deux éditions semblent avoir paru cette même année 1664 ; l’éditeur en a publié une nouvelle en 1667, sous le nom d’auteur Pierre Du Pelletier (ce poète, également auteur de mazarinades, disparut entre 1660 et 1680, Cf. Worldcat et Bnf Autorités). L’ouvrage est rare et conservé dans peu de collections publiques. L’édition de 1664 figurait dans la bibliothèque du duc de La Vallière (Paris, 1788), sous le n° 9631, voisinant avec d’autres recueils de même nature. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Figurative cartouche showing Süleyman I with his entouage. - vita of the artist: Johann Babtiste Homann (1664-1724), Nuremberg, 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 ueb … [Click Below for Full Description]

DESCARTES, RENÉ. - [THE WORLD AND THE THEORY OF LIGHT]
Paris, Iacques le Gras, 1664. 8vo. Very nice contemporary full mottled calf with five raised bands to richly gilt spine. All edges of boards gilt. Old owner's name to title-page (Cognel, 1741). A small marginal strip of paper to outer blank margin of title-page, far from affecting printing, and very discreet. A lovely copy with large margins. (16), 260; 31; 30 pp. + final blank. Woodcut initials and vignettes. Richly illustrated in the text and with five full page illustrations (all woodcut). ¶ First edition of one of Descartes' most important works, his seminal "The World", which contains the fullest exposition of his philosophy, covering everything from method to metaphysics, astronomy, physics and biology.It is in this foundational work, written in the 1630'ies, that Descartes presents us with his corpuscular cosmology and explains the creation of the solar system and the heliocentric system in general. As the entire philosophy presented in the work is based upon the heliocentric view, it is no wonder that Descartes, after having heard of Galileo's conviction due to suspection of heresy, delayed publishing the book (see eg. his letters to Marin Mersenne), which then only appeared posthumously, in 1664."...he had given an account in "Le monde, ou Traité de la lumière" of cosmogony and cosmology as products simply of matter in motion, making the laws of motion the ultimate "laws of nature" and all scientific explanation ultimately mechanistic. This treatise remained unpublished in Descartes' lifetime. So too did the associated L'homme...He withheld these essays...and inste … [Click Below for Full Description]

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).

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".
