      Præmittitur typus operis logicus: subjungitur geminus index: unus authorum, qui allegantur, explicantur, defenduntur, oppugnantur. Alter capitum & quæstionum moralium dubiarum & controversarum. Frankfurt, typis B. C. Wustii, 1665-66. 8:o. Extra grav. titelblad,3-735,726-1600,(45) s. & 1 utvikbar tryckt tabell. Samtida ngt nött mörkt marmorerat skinnbd med upphöjda bind och rik oxiderad ryggdekor samt stänkta snitt. Ryggen ngt torr. Fin inlaga. Med G. Palmstädts pressade ryggexlibris och Christian Hammers exlibris.. VD17 39:136828N. På det graverade titelbladet anges tryckåret till 1666. Marcus Friedrich Wendelin (1584-1652) var teolog och pedagog. Det präglade namnet "G. Palmstädt" på ryggen är utfört samtidigt som boken bands och med all sannolikhet för Germund Palm eller Palmstedt (1635-1719), adlad Cederhielm 1686. Han var på 1660-talet landssekreterare i Halland och häradshövding i Albo härad i Småland, men avancerade så småningom till landshövding i Älvsborgs och Skaraborgs län. Carlander omnämner inte något band med detta ryggexlibris i sin artikel om det Cederhielmska biblioteket

      Trans. by James Duport. Title within typographical border. 18 p.l., 126 pp., 1 blank leaf. Large 12mo, cont. panelled calf. Cambridge: [1665]. [bound with as usual]:PSALMS in Greek: Psalterion toy Dabid, kata tous Hebdomekonta, Eis ta tmemata, ta en te tes Anglikanes Ekklesias leitourgia nomizomena, dieremeion. Woodcut coat-of-arms of Cambridge University on title (repeated on verso of p. 115). Title within ruled border. 1 p.l., 115, [1] pp., one blank leaf, 117-71 pp. Large 12mo. Cambridge: 1664. 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. Manuel Godinho and his Journey from India to Portugal in 1663 (1990).. 4to. in 8’s, (6) ff., 188 pp., including engraved arms of dedicatee on 2nd leaf signed Juan Battista.

        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.&

        Physico-Mathesis de Lumine, Coloribus, et Iride

      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.

        Carte très commode aux gens de guerre, ingénieurs et canonniers / Krygs Ingenieurs en Artillerie Tafel, in welke de voornaamste benamingen zoo wel der Meetkunde, Vestingbouw, Oorlogsgereedschappen, Vuurwerken

      Amsterdam: Covens and Mortier. Uncolored engraving. Image measures 20.25" x 27.5". This rare reference engraving illustrates principal terms of geometry, fortification, and artillery for use in battle during the mid-18th century. The top left section shows geometrical shapes and tools of mathematical drafting. The top center and right sections show plans and schemata for the construction and layout of fortifications. At the left and right center of the engraving are illustrations of battle artillery, and in the middle of the sections, more plans for the situation and organization of forts. At the bottom, surrounding the cartouche, are representations of cannons and other firearms. The title is given in French above the map and in Dutch in a decorative title cartouche at the bottom crowned with two eagles. The print is from a Dutch edition of De L'Isle's work entitled "Atlas Nouveau, Contenant Toutes Les Parties Du Monde, Ou sont exactement Remarquées les Empires, Monarchies, Royaumes, Etats, Republiques &c." It is in very good condition with some toning. Some chips and small tears to the margin not affecting the image. Small crease to lower right corner. The Amsterdam publishing firm of Covens and Mortier (1665-c. 1862) was established by Cornelius Mortier and Jean Covens. Together, the two republished the works of great 17th and early 18th century Dutch and French cartographers such as De L'Isle, Allard, Jansson, De Wit, and Ottens. The firm quickly grew into one of the largest and most prolific Dutch publishing outfits of the 18th century and enjoyed a long and prolific life under a variety of names.

        Les tragédies et comédies de Th. Corneille

      No place [Amsterdam]: Suivant la copie imprimée a Paris [Abraham Wolfgang], [1665]. 12mo (13.4 cm, 5.25"). Six of seven parts in one. Lacking general t.-p. and first part. Engr. t.-p., [3] ff., 78 pp.; engr. t.-p., [4] ff., 76 pp.; engr. t.-p., [5] ff., 73, [1] pp.; engr. t.-p., [1] f., 70 pp.; engr. t.-p., [4] ff., 73, [3] pp.; engr. t.-p., [3] ff., 82 pp. French dramatist Thomas Corneille (1625–1709) lived in the shadow of his playwright brother Pierre (1606–84), the "Great Corneille"; however Thomas wrote over forty plays, and his Timocrate, included here, had the longest recorded run (80 nights) of any play in the seventeenth century! These six comedies and tragedies — Les illustres ennemis, comedie; Berenice, tragedie; Timocrate, tragedie; La mort de l'empereur commode, tragedie; Darius, tragedie; and Le charme de la voix, comedie — comprise six of the seven plays making up the second volume only of a five-volume set, Les tragédies et comédies de Th. Corneille, printed => for the Elzevirs by Abraham Wolfgang in Holland, 1665–78. Six separate title-pages with the "Quaerendo" printer's mark and => six particularly lively, charming added engraved title-pages precede the six plays, each dated 1662 (the first editions date to 1656–59). This copy is lacking the general title-page dated 1665 and the first play, Le geôlier de soy-mesme (1662); the text, in French, is decorated with woodcut initials, head- and tailpieces, and sparse woodcuts of animals. Rare: Searches of NUC-Pre1956 and WorldCat find the five-volume set Les tragédies et comédies at just one U.S. institution (Univ. of Chicago), and => each play individually in up to three U.S. locations only. Provenance: Inked monogram of Edwin Wolf II on front pastedown, and inscriptions of John Bridgman, Esq., on rear endpaper and pastedown. => A charming old sketch of a woman with a lute graces the front pastedown; a bit of much sketchier sketching marks the rear one. Willems, Supplement, 1727 (b); Graesse, II, 268. Not in Goldsmid. Contemporary vellum with yapp fore-edges; joints and front hinge repaired, new fly-leaf added. Lacking general title-page and first part, as above. Light soiling to edges with occasional very minor foxing or a light stain, two short marginal tears, one leaf with a corner-tip lost — a nice copy.

Full original calf recently and expertly restored, rebacked retaining much of the original back strip, red morocco label title in gilt, 5 raised bands, gilt ornament in each. A well restored, complete copy . Folio in fours (295 x 188mm), pp. blank, 4 leaves, 480. Folding map of northern India and Afghanistan and Pakistan, 'A Description of East India Conteyning the Empire of the Great Mogoll, 3 engraved plates on 2 leaves betwen pp.446-447. A label on front pastedown says "Bequeathed to Christchurch Library ... by David Gregory, first Professor of Modern History in the University of Oxford and Dean of Christchurch from 1756-1767." Bookplate of Christchurch on front pastedown with pencilled shelf marks crossed out. Della Valle's travels (according to Copac) were translated by George Havers. Pietro della Valle (1586-1652) was an Italian polymath, adventurer and traveller who, at his friend, Mario Schipano's suggestion, travelled through Turkey, the Holy Land and beyond to Persia and India. Although both della Valle and Roe were clearly captivated by the Moghul Empire and its courts, their accounts differ; Della Valle's writing has detailed descriptions of music, dance and food, whereas Roe, on a trade mission leaves England with 6 ships and is a slightly more formal traveller; his account contains descriptions of his voyage, religion, society, customs and governance, Together, in this extraordinary book, della Vale and Roe provide an extraordinary view from a European travellers perspective, of the distant world of the east during the Moghul Empire. & Wing V48A

        The Causes and Cure of the Pestilence or, A Brief Collection of those Provoking Sins, Recorded in the Holy Scriptures, for which the Lord hath Usually sent the Sore destroying Pestilence or Plague among a People. Together with Some Special Spiritual Receipts and Preservatives Against the Further Encrease of this Pestilential Disease

      London: London - Unknown, 1665 Book. Good. Half-Leather. 1st Edition. [16] pp 1-255 [1] The first and only edition of Thomas Rosewell's Presbyterian response to the horrors of the 1665 outbreak of the plague in London in which he suggests that the pestilence was God's retribution for the sins of the English ungodly. The octavo volume has been crudely recased in quarter sheep over marbled boards, probably in the eighteenth century, with the original sheep binding cut away and reattached to marbled boards which appear to have been borrowed from another book. Both the marbled boards and leather spine are very worn although an early morocco spine label is retained. Internally the text is complete (A-R8) and extensively browned, especially the first and last few gatherings. A triangle at the lower corner of the title page (half inch along by one inch up foreedge) is nearly detached. Internally the hinges are open. Rosewell's Causes and Cure of the Pestilence is an uncommon work with just one copy recorded at auction in the last thirty years. ESTC R41076.
