        La Chyromantie naturelle de Ronphyle.

      - Paris, Jean-Baptiste Loyson, 1665. In-12, demi-chagrin rouge à coins, dos à 4 faux-nerfs orné d'un petit fer entre-nerfs, filets dorés sur les plats, tranches dorées (rel. début XXe), 78 p., 6 planches à pleine page. Edition illustrée de 6 planches gravées à peine page en taille douce, comprises dans la pagination. L'un des ouvrages "classique" de chiromancie, selon Caillet : "l'un des meilleurs traités de chiromancie qui existent, orné de nombreuses figures finement gravées – les rapports de l’astrologie avec les tempéraments y sont longuement étudiés et permettent d’obtenir des résultats plus sûrs qu’avec les autres méthodes". "Ronphile" est le pseudonyme de Rampalle, véritable auteur et non traducteur - comme indiqué au privilège - de la 'Chyromantie'. Il s'agit probablement de Jean Antoine Rampalle, né à l'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, carme déchaussé, nommé Pierre de Saint-André en religion. (Caillet, 9577. Dorbon, 4223). Bon exemplaire.

        Quod extat, cum perpetuis Gronovii et variorum.

      apud Ludovicum & Danielem Elzevirios [apud Danielem Elzevirium] 1665 - Amsterdam, apud Ludovicum & Danielem Elzevirios [apud Danielem Elzevirium], 1665 [1664]. 3 vol. in 8 de [XLVIII]-820-[LXXVI]pp., 842-[LXX]pp., 997-[XCI]pp., reliures en plein vélin rigide de l'époque, titre manuscrit à l'encre noire sur les dos, petites traces de salissures ou de gras, parfois des noirceurs, plats larges à grands rabats qui recouvrent une partie des tranches, annotations de l'époque à l'encre noire dans les marges, quelques soulignements à l'encre noire légèrement passée sans gravité pour la lecture, intérieur frais, bon et bel exemplaire. Cette seconde édition dans sa troisième impression, établie par J. F. Gronovius (1611-1671) marque une étape décisive dans l'approche et la compréhension du grand historien latin, cette édition sera la dernière proposée par Grovonius de son vivant, son fils Jacob, professeur des classiques tout comme lui, proposera une nouvelle édition, à la fin des années 1670. De l'oeuvre de Tite Live (Padoue 59 avant Jésus Christ - 17 après Jésus Christ), ''Ab urbe Condita"; Histoire de Rome depuis sa fondation, seuls 35 livres sur les 142 écrits (150 étaient prévus) nous sont parvenus. Les livres qui nous sont restés concernent l'histoire des premiers siècles de Rome depuis sa fondation jusqu'en 292 avant J. C., l'oeuvre se décomposant ainsi: le livre I incluant la période royale allant de 753 à 509 avant J. C. avec l'arrivée d'Enée, la dynastie Albaine, les règnes de Romulus, Buma, Pompilius, Tullus Hostillus, Ancus Marcius, Tarquin l'ancien, Servius Tullius, Tarquin le superbe ainsi que son renversement. Les livres II-V couvrent les premiers siècles de la République (509-390 avant J. C.) avec la lutte contre les Tarquins, les deux Décemvirats, la paix de Veies, l'invasion gauloise de 390 et les exploits de Camille. Les livres XXI-XLV couvrent le récit de la deuxième guerre punique et de la conquête par les armées romaines de la Gaule Cisalpine, de la Grèce, de la Macédoine et d'une partie de l'Asie mineure. Le dernier événement important relaté est le triomphe de Paul Emile à Pydna en 168 avant Jésus Christ. Les livres VI à X concernent la conquête de l'Italie (390-292 avant J. C.) avec les guerres samnites, les livres XXI-XXX traitent de la deuxième guerre punique de 218 à 202 avant Jésus Christ, les livres XXXI-XL de la deuxième guerre macédonienne et de la lutte contre Antiochos III (201 -179 avant J. C.), enfin les livres XLI-XLV terminent l'oeuvre disponible par la troisième guerre macédonienne (178-167 avant Jésus Christ). Tite Live fut très proche de l'Empereur Auguste, pour celui-ci, bien que connaissant les sympathies républicaines de cet auteur, l'ouvrage pouvait servir son pouvoir et le glorifier. En effet, le livre élève non seulement un monument à la gloire de Rome mais souligne surtout l'ancienneté et la continuité sans faille de l'histoire de la ville. Selon Tite Live, l'Histoire n'est pas objective: elle idéalise les grands hommes et reste pleine de prévention à l'égard des démocrates. Tite Live ne possède pas la méthode scientifique de Thucydide ou de Polybe. Cette ''Histoire de Rome" est aussi un ouvrage de dialectique et de morale et contient la première uchronie connue.

        Paradise Regain'd, A Poem... To which is added Samson Agonistes. [Paradise Regained]

      London: by J.M. for John Starkey. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE of Paradise Regained, with the first edition of Samson Agonistes (as issued); in beautiful Riviere and Son binding. "In August 1665 Milton had shown the unpublished manuscript of Paradise Lost to Thomas Ellwood, who read it and told Milton that 'thou hast said much here of Paradise Lost, but what hast thou to say of Paradise Found?' (Masson, 6.496). In the following year Ellwood visited Milton in London, and Milton showed him the manuscript of Paradise Regained, graciously telling Ellwood that 'this is owing to you; for you put it into my head by the question you put to me at Chalfont' (ibid., 6.654). It is possible that Paradise Regained, which depicts the temptations of Jesus in the desert, owes its pacific tone to the influence of the values of the Quaker community at Chalfont St Giles. The Jesus of Paradise Regained is not a warrior like the Son in book 6 of Paradise Lost, but rather a man who outwits his opponent…" (Dictionary of National Biography). This first edition of Paradise Regained includes the first edition of Milton's classic tragic drama Samson Agonistes, as issued. First issue: With "loah" for "loth" on F2 (p. 67). Complete with license leaf and errata. London: by J.M. for John Starkey, 1671. Octavo (173x106mm), nineteenth century full crimson crushed morocco by Riviere and Son with elaborate gilt tooling on boards; rebacked with original spine laid down. Decorative engraved bookplate of Florence de Wolfe Sampson. One neat early ink marginal note; text very clean with only occasional spots of soiling. A little closely cropped. A very handsome copy in a fine binding.

        Pascaarte van Engelant Van 't Voorlant tot aen Blakeney waer in te sien is de mont vende Teemse [with] River van Londen

      Amsterdam, 1665-66. unbound. Map. Uncolored copperplate engraving. Image measures 17.5 x 21.5". This sea chart depicts the British Isles with North oriented to the right. The map extends to include the English Chanel and coastline of Normandy. In addition to ports, the index also includes soundings, sand bars, fishing banks and navigational hazards. Each region is adorned with a decorative coat of arms, and embellished compass roses appear at the top and bottom of the map. This map was published in Goos' "De Zee-Atlas Ofte Water-Weereld" and remains in its original uncolored state, which allows Goos' intricate line work to shine. It is in good condition with slight foxing, soiling, and off-setting. Pieter Goos (1616-1675) was a Dutch cartographer, engraver, publisher, printer, and print-seller based in Amsterdam. He belonged to a noted family of cartographers, headed by his father Abraham, who prepared plates for many maps published in the important atlases of the time. His pilot guide, the "Zee-Spiegel," provided some of the first charts of newly explored regions in the West Indies and Western Africa, and his "Zee-Atlas" is considered one of the best sea atlases of its time. This map is a fine example of Goos' high quality, visually appealing sea charts.

        Flagellum: Or The Life and Death Birth and Burial of O. Cromwell The late Usurper: Faithfully Described. With An Exact Account of His Polices and Successes: Not heretofore Published or Discovered. The Third Edition with Additions

      London, Printed by W. G. for Randall Taylor..., 1665. Small 8vo, 155 x 103 mms., pp. [viii], 200, engraved portrait frontispiece, title-page in red and black, 19th century continental boards. An inscription on the recto of the frontispiece is barely legible, with an inscription at the top of the page that is virtually unreadable; the lines below seem to read: "[?dnt] to from Mr. Hume/ [d--] to [?me ?mr} from David Hu[me]." Below that is a sum, either "12 - 6" or "2 - 6," the first number having been crossed out and "2" inscribed above. The inscription is very unlikely alluding to or by the philosopher David Hume, but was perhaps given to the previous owner by Hume's nephew, though the handwriting appears to be much earlier. Heath's book was first published in 1663, and there were a further seven editions. As it happens, David Hume did write to Sir David Dalrymple, on 3 April 1754: "There is a Book, calld Flagellum or the Life of Oliver Cromwell, which I have commission'd for the [Advocates'} Library; but as it is a very scarce Book, & these Commissions are not soon answer'd, I may wait long before I get it. I know you have a very large Library; & if that Book be in it, I shall be very much obligd to you for a Loan of it; that being now the Period, which I have begun upon [i. e., in writing his History of England]." The present copy is unlikely to be the one formerly in Sir David's library, and the handwriting is not either. When his books were auctioned by Sotheby's in 1937, no copy of Flagellum was listed, though it might have been in a job lot. However, Dalrymple was very proud of his library and would probably not have defaced the book with the existing notations. In short, this copy is very unlikely to have any tangible connection either with David Hume or Sir David Dalrymple

        Ordo et methodus medicinae specialis commentariorae hos en genei (graece), ad normam veterum & novorum dogmatum proposita.

      4°. (18 Bl.), ca. 1069 S., (22 Bl.). Pergamentband der Zeit (Rückdeckel fleckig). Erste Ausgabe. - Krivatsy 9831; Hirsch/H. IV, 861; VD17 39:145823Y. - Eines der Hauptwerke des bedeutenden Anatomen. Wegen der außerordentlich komplizierten Kollation ist auf Anfrage eine Kollation nach der Bogennorm erhältlich. Werner Rolfinck (1599-1673), "studierte seit 1616 die Artes, dann Medizin in Wittenberg und Leiden, unternahm Studienreisen nach England, Frankreich und Italien und wurde 1625 in Padua als Schüler Adriaan van den Spieghels promoviert. 1628 kehrte er nach Wittenberg zurück und erhielt den Lehrstuhl für Anatomie . 1629 wurde R. Prof. der Anatomie, Chiurgie und Botanik sowie Direktor des Botanischen Gartens in Jena, wo er 1641 auch die Professur für Chemie übernahm. Er machte sich um die Universität Jena durch die Gründung eines chemischen Laboratoriums und eines anatomischen Theaters verdient" (Engelhardt II, 506). Er war auch der erste deutsche Anatom, der in der Vorlesung an Leichen demonstrierte. Durch ihn wurde der Ausdruck "Rolfincken" für den Leichendiebstahl zum Zwecke des Zergliederns volkstümlich. "Rolfinck was the first German to accept Harvey's theory of the circulation of the blood, which he taught in 1632 with such enthusiasm that he compared Harvey to Columbus. He collected surgical instruments, made a personal contribution to ophthalmology (he was the first to demonstrate the location of cataracts in the lense of the eye), and is credited with revolutionizing medicine at Jena" (DSB II, 511). - Angebunden: Hoffmann, Friedrich: Opus de methodo medendi, juxta seriem Wallaeianam, annexis fundamentis astrologicis, ex veterum ac recentiorum scriptis concinnatum, dogmaticis, Paracelsicis, Helmontianis, Harveianis principiis & propriis oberservationibus illustratum... cum praefatione magni istius Johannis Michelis.

First edition of Duport's translation into Greek of the Book of Common Prayer, one of five Prayer Books listed by Harrison in The Library of Isaac Newton, and a tangible link with a crucial episode in Newton's career. Before his installation as dean of Peterborough in July of 1664, one of Duport's last acts as vice-master of Trinity College, Cambridge, was to elect Newton to a scholarship. The election is not without its mysteries, since Newton had not shone in the University's ordinary subjects and he was without powerful connections. But the election was momentous: "with his election, Newton ceased to be a sizar. He now received commons from the college, a livery allowance...and a stipend...Far more important, he received the assurance of at least four more years of unconstrained study...He could abandon himself completely to the studies he had found. The capacity Newton had shown as a schoolboy for ecstasy, total surrender to a commanding interest, now found in his early manhood its mature intellectual manifestation."-Westfall, Never at Rest. A Biography of Isaac Newton, p. 103. Duport (1606-79), was also regius professor of Greek at Cambridge. In this copy, the Musgrave bookplate is pasted over the Charles Huggins bookplate. With the signature of William Huggins and the Musgrave shelfmark "A1-3." Very fine and fresh copies. Preserved in a box. ❧ Harrison, The Library of Isaac Newton, 242-(not knowing, having never seen this copy, that the Greek Psalms was bound-in). .

        Astronomia Reformata

      Heirs of Vittorio Benacci Scarce first edition of Riccioli's anti-Copernican, Tychonic geo-centrist cosmology, presenting an astronomy reformed, so he claims, of theoretical as well as observational errors, and considered a conclusion to the Almagestum novum of 1651. As the Jesuits' leading astronomer, his observational and experimental achievements offered significant refinements of Galilean quantitative experimental procedures in terms of accuracy, and although intended to refute Galileo, his results often unwittingly confirmed them.

        A Brief Treatise Of the nature, causes, signes, preservation from, and cure of the Pestilence

      London: printed for, and are to be sold by D. Kemp, at his shop,, 1665. Collected by W. Kemp, Mr. of Arts. Small quarto (178 × 129 mm), pp. [6], 47, 50-94, [2]; irregular pagination but collates complete. Recent sprinkled sheep to style, double blind rules, unlettered. British Museum sale duplicate 1787 stamp on title verso blank. Small contemporary ink inscription at upper outer corner of title, one or two minor blemishes, an excellent copy. First edition. Kemp was a Holborn medical practitioner writing just as the devastating outbreak of bubonic plague reached the city of London: his postscript is dated 22 July 1665, three weeks after the king and his court had fled the stricken city. Though not a member of the college, Kemp was a supporter of the College of Physicians and their recommendations. (The publisher was perhaps his brother; neither Kemp produced another work.) His book gives symptoms of the plague, various theories as to its aetiology, suggested prophylactics (including an enthusiastic recommendation of tobacco smoking), and recipes for suitable medicines. At the end he notes that these medicines can be home-made, or bought ready-made "at Mr. John Dunsons at the Sign of the Pestle and Mortar in Coleman-street, or at Mr. Hamnet Rigbies at the Seven Stars in Fetter-Lane." His final address "to the readers" disavows any notion of profiting from the sale of such medicines himself, and emphasizes that his intended readership is the poorer sort who cannot afford expensive remedies.

        Relacão do Novo Caminho que Fez por Terra, e Mar, vindo sa India para Portugal no anno de 1663

      Lisbon: Officina de Henrique Valente de Oliveir, 1665. First and the only contemporary edition of one of the earliest and certainly the most interesting Jesuit accounts of India, a classic of Portuguese travel literature from the very end of Portuguese domination of the country, written shortly before Bombay was ceded once and for all to the English in accordance with the Anglo-Portuguese peace treaty of 1661. A Portuguese Jesuit, Godinho was in India from 1655 to 1663, and the work gives a closely observed picture of Indian society: “The State of India is so decrepit that we have it only in name. If it has not died yet, it is because it has not found a grave commensurate with its greatness. If once a tree, it is now a trunk; if once a building, it is now a ruin; if once a man, it is now a stump...” (p. 26). The work contains an overview of India, followed by individual chapters on Bassein, Daman, and Surat, where he recounts his theological discussion with a Hindi Brahmin and gives an account of the great Mughal; whence on to Ormuz, the Persia Gulf, Iraq, Syria and Egypt and back to Lisbon. “Particularly attractive in the Relação are the pictures he draws of the peoples, manners and customs of the regions he traversed... And Godinho in his clear and incisive style, seasoned with cheerful humour and occasional irony, is entertainingly informative with his descriptions of Arab brigandage and hospitality, of Hindu customs and Muslim festivals. Though unswerving in his loyalty to his faith and country, he can both praise the character of the Persians and the hospitals of Aleppo, and condemn the rapacity and dishonesty of his own country.” -- Correia-Afonso, p. 12. Godinho returned to Lisbon entrusted with a secret mission from the Viceroy, Mello de Castro. Long an object of speculation, this was only recently revealed to be what had long been suspected, namely an urgent plea to the Portuguese King not to cede Bombay. (See Correia-Afonoso, p. 10). *Palau 103, 032; Heredia 2881; John Correia-Afonso, Intrepid Itinerant.

        Tartaros en China, Historia que escrivio en Latin el R. P. Matin Martinio, de la Compañia de Iesus

      The rare first Spanish edition of Martini?s famed History of China. 1665. Madrid. Joseph Fernandez de Buenca. In 8vo (137 mm x 90 mm). 20 ff. + 188. Eighteenth century calf, spine gilt with floral tooling and red morocco lettering piece, gently rubbed, upper compartment restored. Upper margin a little short, paper browned as always for Spanish 17th century paper, ex libris removed from verso of title page causing foxing and creasing, ff. 51 with paper loss just touching one letter, a few foxing spots but overall very good. First edition. This Spanish translation was prepared by Estevan de Aguilar y Zuñiga. Martini (1614 - 1661) was a remarkable Italian Jesuit, cartographer and traveller; he is known for his history of China and his cartographic renderings of the country; the latter so important, that eventually were published as one of the volumes of Blaeu?s monumental "Atlas Nuevo de la extrema Asia, o descripcion geographica del Imperio de las Chinas", published in 1658. Martini sailed to China in 1640, making port in Macau in 1642, where he stayed for over 10 years ?studying the cartography, language and history of China, and becoming the superior of the mission at Hang-Tcheou; after that he parted back to Europe to work on his atlas. After a few years he made his way back to China until his death. His fame and the respect gained were partially due to his use of the Chinese cartography available at the time, thus not only relying on European maps but on local maps as well. Death would find him in China in 1661. Even today, in China, he is arguably the most regarded missionary to have ever stepped foot in that country, and has been called "the first to study the history and geography of China with rigorous scientific objectivity; the extend of his knowledge of the Chinese culture, the accuracy of his investigations, the depth of his understanding of things Chinese are examples for the modern sinologists" (Prof. Ma Yong, Chinese Academy of Social Sciences).

        Considerazioni ed esperienze intorno al creduto cervello di bue impietrito; Considerazioni ed esperienze intorno all generazione de’vermi nel corpo umano...; WITH AN EXCELLENT ASSOCIATION

      Nella stamperia del Seminario, Each work with separate title. With 14 folding plates (10 in the first volume, 4 in the second volume). Contemporary vellum in fine condition; from the library of Antonio Pacchioni (1665-1726), famous anatomist and physician. First editions of Vallisnieri's first two books. In the first work, the author describes the brain of an ox, which supposedly contained some curious stones, petrified during the lifetime of the animal. However, he denies that the mass found in the animal's head is actually its brain. We can't tell you exactly what it turned out to be; you have to read the book. The second work is an important treatise in parasitology, with observations on parasites in the human body. He proved that these parasites were not due to spontaneous generation, as then frequently believed, but grew from eggs.& & Vallisnieri (1661-1730), the famous pupil of Malpighi, was noted as a physician, professor of medicine at the University of Padua, and as a scientific investigator. He wrote extensively on embryology, biology, natural history and geology, and did fundamental research in the fields of helminthology and entomology. & & Pacchioni (1665-1726), a pupil of Malpighi, was a successful physician in Rome and head doctor at the Hospital of San Giovanni in Laterano. He collaborated with Lancisi on the explanatory text of Eustachi's Tabulae anatomicae, but is best known for his Dissertatio epistolaris de glandulis conglobatis durae meningis humane (Rome, 1705) which describes the arachnoidal granulations and the slight depressions produced by the arachnoid tissue under the dura. Pacchioni's bodies and Pacchioni's depressions were coined from his discoveries.&

      Added title-page with a large engraved vignette & woodcut diagrams in the text. Both titles printed in red & black. 11 p.l. (including the added title-page), 535 pp., 8 leaves. 4to, cont. calf (rebacked & corners repaired, some faint dampstains). Bologna: Heirs of V. Benati, 1665. First edition, the copy of William Molyneux (1656-98), astronomer, founder of the Dublin Philosophical Society, and author of the first treatise on optics in English (for more on Molyneux, see D.S.B., IX, pp. 464-66). This is Grimaldi's only book; in it he describes the discovery of optical diffraction. This is perhaps the rarest of all great optical books, especially in such good condition, and marks the first scientific attempt to establish a comprehensive wave theory of light. The diffraction experiments which Grimaldi describes here show "that a new mode of transmission of light had been discovered and that this mode contradicts the notion of an exclusively rectilinear passage of light. Diffraction thus gave prima facie evidence for a fluid nature of light. The name 'diffraction' comes from the loss of uniformity observed in the flow of a stream of water as it 'splits apart' around a slender obstacle placed in its path."-D.S.B., V, p. 544. Grimaldi repeatedly states that colors are not something different from light but are modifications of light produced by the fine structure of the bodies which reflect it, and probably consisting of an alteration in the type of motion and in the velocity of the light. The different colors are produced when the eye is stimulated by light oscillations whose velocities differ. All these views were of fundamental importance for the subsequent development of optics. Newton was aware of Grimaldi's work, though only secondhand. The Englishman's great contribution to the knowledge of diffraction is his set of careful measurements which made clear the periodic nature of the phenomenon. With the signature of William Molyneux on the second title-page. Bookplate of E.N. da C. Andrade. Very good copy and preserved in a slipcase. ❧ Albert, Norton, & Hurtes, Source Book of Ophthalmology, 919-contains "Grimaldi's work on the discovery of the diffraction (Newton's inflexion) of light...considered a classic in the history of optics, this work makes the first scientific attempt to establish the wave theory."

The Theodosian Code is an official compilation of all laws enacted since the reign of Constantine that was commissioned by Emperor Theodosius II in 429 CE. Completed in 438 CE, and ratified that year by the senate, it was the standard legal text of the empire, one that superseded all earlier codes. It would later exert enormous influence on the barbarians who assumed control of the Western Empire. The Visigoths, Ostrogoths, Franks, Lombards and Burgundians used it as the basis for their legal codes. Godefroy's edition, which includes extensive commentary, was the first modern edition of the Codex. It remains a masterpiece of scholarship and erudition. This edition also contains additional notes by Antoine Marville. Graesse, Tresor de Livres Rares et Precieux 209. British Museum Catalogue (Compact Edition) 21:980.
