ZACCHIA, L.
Venetiis, Apud Turrinum, 1664. Title-page of the first work printed in red and black, both title-pages with a large woodcut vignette. Two works in one volume. (100), 404 (misnumbered 406) pp.; (76), 180 pp. Folio. Later half calf, spine with raised bands, label with gilt lettering, marbled boards, three vellum corners (vellum on one corner gone). Vinciana 1161 for the 1679 edition which was the first collected edition of these two works, these two separate original editions lack; Einaudi 6102 also the 1679 edition; Kress S.1150, first work only, second work not in Kress; Goldsmiths 1425, first work only, the second not in Goldsmiths; both not in Camus. Scarce first edition of both works. Lanfranco Zacchia was an Emilian jurist and the author of a Latin treatise (the present one) on wages which deserves mention for the rarity of the consideration of that subject in the days when he wrote. Zacchia distinguishes different forms of wages which he regards as the reward for any description of work. Wages are fixed by the monarch or the 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. He also studies the judicial effects on wages of alterations in the value of money. The work deals with the subject in 110 questions or problems, both practical and theoretical, and treating numerous professions and sorts of work. Zacchia also deals, in various places, with the problem of usury.In the second work Zacchia has collected the rulings by the Sacra Rota concerning … [Click Below for Full Description]

DESCARTES, René.
Lugduni Batavorum (Leida), ex officina Hackiana, 1664. in-4, pp. (36), 123 (mal num. 121, per doppia numerazione delle pp. 111-112), (5), leg. coeva p. perg. rigida, tit. ms. al dorso. Impresa tipogr. al tit. Adorno di numerose splendide illustrazioni anatomiche incise in rame ed in legno, molte a mezza o a piena pagina, 10 delle quali sono f.t. Seconda edizione, di soli due anni posteriore alla prima apparsa nella stessa città, contemporanea all'edizione originale definitiva, completa e col testo in francese, apparsa a Parigi. Com'è noto, Descartes lavorò all'opera fin dal 1630, ma decise di non pubblicarla, avendo saputo della condanna di Galileo nel 1633. Pur riconoscendo l'importanza della scoperta di Harvey, Descartes non credeva che la circolazione del sangue fosse causata dalle pulsazioni cardiache, bensì considerava il corpo umano come una macchina diretta da un principio razionale situato nella ghiandola pineale. Considerato come il primo tentativo d'abbracciare tutta la fisiologia animale, il "De homine" è in realtà una specie di supplemento fisiologico al "Discours de la Méthode" pubblicato nel 1637 e fu sorgente d'ispirazione per molti studiosi. "This book was the first attempt to cover the whole field of animal physiology. The work is really a physiological aoppendix to his Discourse on method..." (Garrison-Morton). Opera di fondamentale importanza, tra i più eminenti prodotti dell'ingegno umano. Buon esempl. (lieve brunitura della carta).. Garrison Morton 574. Wellcome Cat. II, 453..

[PEETERS, Johannes (Jan) (after)].
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.

DESCARTES RENE'.
PARIGI, CHARLES ANGOT, 1664. In-4°; 120 pp., 4 cc. nn. Legatura coeva in tutta pelle (restauri alle cerniere e al dorso), titoli e fregi in oro al dorso e agli orli, tagli marmorizzati. Lievi bruniture. Prima edizione autonoma de "La geometrie". In questo fondamentale trattato in tre libri viene introdotto il sistema di coordinate cartesiane, destinato a rivoluzionare le discipline matematiche e a influenzare gli studi di Newton e Leibniz, nella direzione di una inevitabile compenetrazione di algebra e geometria. Il contenuto di questo importante volume, sia per le soluzioni proposte che per il linguaggio adottato, è di certo il più avanzato e moderno della prima metà del 1600. Lo stesso autore, conscio dell'importanza del suo lavoro, scrive: "Ed io spero che i nostri nipoti mi saranno grati, non solo delle cose che io ho spiegato, ma anche di quelle che volontariamente ho omesso, allo scopo di lasciar loro il piacere di inventarle". "The Géométrie represented the sum of mathematical knowledge to which Descartes was willing to commit himself in print" (DSB). DSB, s.v., p. 58. Cajori pp. 173/177. Honeyman 860.

LE MAGNIFIQUE CAROUSEL
1664. in-12 oblungo, frontespizio e 18 tavole, tutte incise, legatura coeva in pergamena floscia tinta di verde. Si tratta di una rarissima fedele trasposizione in controparte delle incisioni realizzate nel 1608 da Remigio Cantagallina (ca.1582-ca.1630) d'après Giulio Parigi (1571-1635) per le nozze di Cosimo II con Maria Maddalena d'Austria. Rispetto al Cantagallina nel presente esemplare si trovano ripetute le tavole con ''La Barca de Castor e Polluce'' e quella con ''Anfione Argon condotto da Mercurio'', mentre sono assenti ''Atalata condoti da Diana'' e ''Barcha di Musici rapra Clauco Dio Marino eTritoni''. Le raffigurazioni, di notevole impatto coreografico, rappresentano l'imponente allestimento realizzato in occasione delle nozze: il "Carosello" si tenne sull'Arno e furono costruite fantasiose imbarcazioni per festeggiare l'evento. Le lastre della seconda metà del XVII secolo prevedono l'aggiunta dei nomi dei personaggi raffigurati e di una numerazione in basso a sinistra. Curiosamente reincise 56 anni dopo la prima tiratura, venne inserito un frontespizio con due figure che reggono una dedica al Commissario dell'ordine e Controllore Provinciale dell'artiglieria nella città d'Arras e nei Paesi dell'Artois, probabile committente dell'opera. Sébastien Pontaut de Beaulieu fu al servizio di Luigi XIV e fu uno dei padri della topografia militare; fu inoltre autore de Les glorieuses conquêtes de Louis le Grand, raccolta di carte, piante di assedi e battaglie a partire dal 1643, continuato dopo la sua mote sino al 1694.

BECHER Johann Joachim.
Apud Hermannum à Sande, Francofurti. Testo latino. Cm.13x7,7. Pg.(12), 192, (8). Legatura in piena pergamena rigida con unghie e laccetti di chiusura, sempre pergamenacei. Titoli manoscritti al dorso. La seconda carta del volume è collazionata su carta diversa dalle altre: al recto vi compare una vignetta allegorica raffigurante Edipo e la Sfinge, al verso l'incipit della Dedicatoria al Sig. "Francisco De Le Böe, dicto Sylvio". Una carta fuori testo raffigurante la "Divina Metamorphosis" (medaglia di Praga, 1648). Cartiglio decorativo inciso in fine al testo. Al foglio di guardia antica notazione di proprietà manoscritta, con timbro in ceralacca e piccolo cartiglio ritagliato e incollato. Figlio di un ministro luterano, il medico e matematico Johann Joachim Becher (Speyer, 1635-1682) fu in gioventù al servizio dell'Elettore di Mainz in qualità di docente di medicina presso il locale ateneo. Ebbe vita assai avventurosa, svolgendo importanti mansioni in Baviera, a Vienna, in Olanda e a Londra. Il presente costituisce il suo testo più conosciuto. Si tratta di un approfondito studio di chimica e di alchimia, in cui il Becher (nome latinizzato Becherius) tratta delle principali sostanze e operazioni chimiche. In particolare si spinge a confutare la fondatezza dei quattro elementi aristotelici (aria, acqua, terra e fuoco) e dei tre principi della qualità di Paracelso (zolfo, sale, mercurio) dando così impulso alle nuove teorie già esposte dall'Helmont e dal Boyle. Così il Neville dipinge l'Opera: "an important book that contains the germs of the ideas that were later (by G.E. Sta … [Click Below for Full Description]

PARACELSE] BECHER (Johann Joachim).
Amsterdam, Elizeum Weyerstraen, 1664. in-12. Frontispice, 6ff. 1 planche. 202pp. 4ff Veau brun, dos à nerfs orné (Reliure de l'époque). Edition Originale de l"Oedipus Chimicus" du chimiste allemand Johann Joachim Becher, dédié au grand médecin et chimiste hollandais Franciscus de le Boe (1614-1672), créateur du premier laboratoire universitaire de chimie. Issu de la doctrine chimique et alchimique de Parcelse, l"Oedipus Chimicus" est "an important book that contains the germs of the ideas that were later (by G.E. Stahl) developed into the theory of phlogiston." (Neville). Il devint rapidement "a standard text on elements, principles, and chemical processes" (DSB). Né à Spire en 1635, Becher vécut les dernières années de sa vie à Londres, ville où il est mort en 1682. Cet ouvrage est illustré d'un frontispice allégorique représentant un savant chimiste dans son laboratoire et d'une planche hors-texte. La reliure de l'époque est décorée au dos, entre les nerfs, d'un curieux et rare fer doré représentant une flamme. Il s'agit probablement d'un symbole chimique ou alchimique. Bon exemplaire (un peu restauré). Ferguson I, p.87. Duveen, p. 55. Neville Library I, p. 105; Osler 1976. [Attributes: First Edition]

Subscription receipt for the Lexicon heptaglotton].
[London], 2. V. 1664. 1 f. (c. 190:85 mm). With autogr. signature and papered seal. Payment receipt for the final installment for one of the earliest works in British printing history published by subscription: "Received this second day of May in the year of our Lord God 1664 of John Gill Esquire the summe of twenty shillings being the full intire payment of four pounds by him Subscribed or Promised towards the Printing of a Lexicon and Grammars of the Orientall Languages: Witnesse my hand and seal, the day and yeare above written [.]". The receipt is filled in and signed by the theologian and Semitic scholar Dr. Edmund Castell, and the work subscribed is Castell’s life-work, the ‘Lexicon Heptaglotton’. Upon this work, "which has long challenged the admiration, and defied the competition, of foreigners; and which [.] has raised an eternal monument of literary fame" (Dibdin I, 34), Castell had been at work since 1651; it was published in two folio volumes in 1669, five years after Gill completed his payment and twelve years after the publication of Brian Walton’s six-volume polyglot Bible edition, in the preparation of which Castell had been a valuable help and to which the ‘Lexicon’ was issued as a supplement. In his DNB article on Castell, the orientalist and historian Stanley Lane-Poole recounts the story of the Lexicon’s composition, told with "sad simplicity" in the dedication to Charles II: "The eighteenth year of composition, he writes, has been reached, and that long period has been filled with unremitting toil of seldom less than sixteen or eighteen hours a day, wit … [Click Below for Full Description]

First edition.THE RARE UNAUTHORIZED FIRST EDITION Bound in contemporary sheepskin, re-cased. Fine internally This was the only edition published in PhilipsÕ lifetime. PhilipsÕ died of smallpox in June 1664, five months after the appearance of this publication. The first authorized edition did not appear until 1667. ÒThe daughter of a London merchant, Katherine Fowler [her maiden name] was probably the first English woman poet to have her work published. She married a gentleman of substance from Cardigan, James Philips, and seems to have moved effortlessly into the literary circle adorned by Vaughan, Cowley, and Jeremy Taylor. she was best known by her pseudonym ÔOrindaÕ and the name appears on the collection of her Letters (1705), which give a useful picture of the early seventeenth century literary world. Her translation of CorneilleÕs ÔPompeeÕ was performed in Dublin (1663) and a collection of her verses was published posthumously (1664).Ó (quoted from The Cambridge Guide to English Literature, Michael Stapleton) It is truly a rare treat for us to be able to offer the first appearance in print of the matchless Orinda, the first female English poet to be published. Mrs. PhilipsÕ poems were circulated in manuscript, and secured for her a c … [Click Below for Full Description]

LEVANTO FRANCESCO MARIA.
Marino e Celle,, Genova. In Folio (mm 418x283); carte 3 non numerate compreso lo splendido frontespizio allegorico figurato, dedica e dedica al lettore; 152 pagine, 25 carte nautiche incise in rame. Anche le pagine di testo sono corredate da numerose illustrazioni silografiche di rade, porti e profili costieri. Le carte nautiche riprendono in modo chiaro l'opera di Anthoni Jacobsz (1606-1650) "Gran libro di itinerari del mar Mediterraneo", di grande rarit?, pubblicato nel 1654 da Goos. Pergamena settecentesca con titolo in oro su tassello. Tagli azzurrati. Esemplare molto bello, ben inchiostrato, del celebre atlante nautico. Minimi difetti alle ultime carte con rinforzo marginale delle ultime due e saltuarie macchie.Lo specchio del mare, atlante-portolano del Mediterraneo pubblicato nella sua prima edizione a Genova nel 1664 ed in seconda edizione nel 1679.Poco si conosce su tale capitano genovese Francesco Maria Levanto, che "a sue spese" fece incidere le pi? accreditate carte nautiche disponibili sul bacino del Mediterraneo dell'epoca. Le scarne notizie ci informano che l'atlante - di pregevole fattura - presenta alcuni di questi documenti elaborati negli anni precedenti dallo stesso Levanto insieme ad altri tratti da un'opera olandese, De Lichtende Colomne ofte Zeespigel, pubblicata una ventina di anni prima da Anthoni Jacobsz e riutilizzata in seguito da numerosi altri cartografi (Goos, Donker, Tohrnton, Van Keulen ed altri). Infatti, la prima carta dell'Autore reca la seguente illuminante dicitura: costruite in Amsterdam et corrette dal Cap. Francesco Maria Levanto et … [Click Below for Full Description]

ARISTOTELES
1664. Segue: ARISTOTELES. In octo libros de physico auditu Aristotelis Stagirita quaestiones. Cc. (301) [alcune carte bianche]. Due volumi, mm. 180 x 120, manoscritto cartaceo, cart. saec. XVII, datato L'Aquila, 1664 e verosimilmente attribuibile al professore e teologo seicentesco Giovanni Battista de Ciocchis. Con bellissimo ritratto di S. Luigi Gonzaga (incisione in rame della prima metà del XVII secolo) applicato all'antiporta del primo volume; alcuni disegni n.t. Bellissima legatura coeva in piena pergamena molle con titoli ms. lungo tutto il dorso. Qualche sporadica macchietta, ma nel complesso ottimamente conservato. Interessantissimo commentario alla Fisica di Aristotele, opera suddivisa in otto libri che tratta i seguenti temi: natura, concetto di corpo e movimento, spazio e tempo, forme del movimento. Anche il commentario alla Logica segue il solco dottrinale impresso dai gesuiti cinquecenteschi, come ad esempio lo spagnolo Francisco Toledo che infatti commentò entrambe le opere aristoteliche.
