Première édition continentale de la traduction latine de l'ouvrage de Boyle paru en 1661 sous le titre: "Certain Physiological Essays".

      - Important scientific manuscript, the text of lectures delivered by Rinaldini at the University of Padua, where he served as professor of natural philosophy for 30 years from 1667. Rinaldini had been a close friend of Galileo at Pisa, and was the first to lecture there on his discoveries. As well as discussions of Galileo’s work, the present manuscript also contains an account of Rinaldini’s own important discoveries, including that of the convection of heat. Among other authors cited and discussed are Brahe, Barrow, Borelli, Boyle, Copernicus, Descartes, Gassendi, Kepler, Riccioli and Torricelli. Rinaldini is an important transitional figure, presenting in this manuscript Aristotelian ideas alongside those of the ‘new science’ of Galileo and his supporters, to whose circle he belonged.Provenance: Sir Thomas Phillipps (1792 – 1872), with his signature and the catalog number 9608 on the title. Scholar and bibliophile, Phillipps was the most important collector of books and, especially, manuscripts of the nineteenth century, his collection containing some sixty thousand manuscripts at its peak. "Carlo Rinaldini (spelled Renaldini in the titles of his books, all of which are in Latin), [was] born in Ancona in 1615 to a family that originated in Sienna. After serving as a military engineer in the forces of Urban VIII and Innocent X, he became senior professor of philosophy at Pisa, and also taught mathematics to the young prince, Cosimo. In 1667, on the pretext that the climate of Pisa did not suit him, he obtained permission to depart and took up the chair of philosophy at Padua in December of that year at about twice his former salary, which may explain his preferences as to climate. He stayed there for thirty years and retired to Ancona shortly before his death in 1698" (Middleton, Experimenters, pp. 34-5). Rinaldini knew Galileo personally, and "he was the first to have the courage to lecture at Pisa on the works of Galileo, which had been condemned by the Holy Office, and on the atomistic philosophy of Gassendi, which was suspect because of its derivation from Epicurus. To the Academy [i.e. the Accademia del Cimento] he proposed an experiment to determine whether heat diffuses spherically . His interpretation of this experiment makes him the discoverer of convection in air. He was also one of those chosen to examine the draft of the Saggi" (ibid.). The manuscript is divided into three parts, and covers all aspects of natural philosophy, with descriptions of experiments and illustrations of the scientific instruments used. It begins with a detailed analysis of the atomism of Democritus, advocated by Rinaldini’s contemporary Pierre Gassendi. Rinaldini accepts these ideas, which form the basis of his particulate theory of matter. This is followed by the most extensive part of the manuscript, devoted to the analysis of the properties of air and of the vacuum. This begins on p. 57, on the last line of which "the eminent philosopher and mathematician" Torricelli is quoted, and the following pages explain at length the experiment performed by Torricelli in 1644 to prove the existence of the vacuum, enriched by illustrations on pp. 62 & 67 depicting the instruments used. On pp. 70-71 are described the famous Magdeburg experiment of 1657, when two plates placed sufficiently close together cannot be separated. Following this are descriptions of the air-pump built by Boyle and Hooke in 1659 and of experiments performed with it. Boyle attended a meeting of the Accademia in 1660 and may have met Rinaldini there. Rinaldini discussed Torricelli’s experiments in a famous letter to Boyle of 1 September, 1668 (Boyle, Correspondence, Vol. 4, pp. 91-5). Rinaldini next considers the nature of the heavens, beginning on p. 236 with the nature of comets. Galileo, who is mentioned on p. 276, incorrectly believed that comets are optical phenomena, and Rinaldini’s discussion includes genuine optical phenomena such as the rainbow and parhelia (now known [Attributes: First Edition]

        Publick Employment and an Active Life prefer’d to Solitude, and all its Appanages, such as Fame, Command, Riches, Conversation, &c. In reply to a late Ingenious Essay of a contrary Title.

      - By J.E. Esq; S.R.S. 8 p.l., 120 pp. 8vo, early 18th-century vellum-backed marbled boards (spine a little defective). London: J.M. for H. Herringman, 1667. First edition, first issue, written in response to George Mackenzie’s A Moral Essay, preferring Solitude to Publick Employment, And all it’s Appanages (1665). Mackenzie, a distinguished Scottish advocate, became known as "Bloody Mackenzie" for his harsh treatment of the Covenanters. His book betrayed the character of a bigot. "Perhaps it was his sense of this that incited Evelyn to compose in 1667 his reply [the present book] Evelyn’s advocacy of an active life might seem at variance with his known delight in country solitude and pursuits, and in truth his attack upon Mackenzie is but a half-hearted affair Evelyn’s little volume is attractive in a plain way."–Keynes, John Evelyn, 85 & pp. 185-87.

        A Still Life with grapes, plums, hazlenuts, chestnuts, blackberries, a melon, and a peach on a stone

      - Circle of Herman Henstenburgh (1667-1726) A Still Life with grapes, plums, hazlenuts, chestnuts, blackberries, a melon, and a peach on a stone Watercolor and pencil on vellum Vellum size: 9 3/4” x 12” Frame size: 20” x 22” Signed on ledge: Henstenburgh fecit/ 1761 This dramatic and finely rendered still life is an exquisitely rendered painting from the circle of one of the finest Dutch flower painters, Herman Henstenburgh. The watercolor is in the best tradition of Dutch still-life painting, replete with trompe l'oeil effects and startlingly realistic details, including a wonderfully delicate snail. The rich, dark brown background combines with the profusion of fruits to create a compelling image of warmth and bounty, while all meticulously detailed elements emerge with striking clarity from the dramatic dark background. This engaging and finely rendered still-life is a significant piece from the circle of the finest of Dutch flower painters. Henstenburgh was a pupil of Johannes Bronckhorst, a fellow native of Hoorn in the Netherlands. According to contemporary accounts, Henstenburgh started out by depicting birds and landscapes, in the manner of his teacher, and then broadened his repertoire to include splendid flower and fruit pieces, and occasional woodland still-lifes. For his flawless draftsmanship and vibrant colors, Henstenburgh won considerable renown even during his own lifetime. It is thus unsurprising that other artists should have emulated his style.

        Tabula Geographica Archi=Dioecesis Trevirensis Antiquo-nova 1667.

      1667 - Kupferstich-Karte von N. Person [?] bei Brower/Masen, datiert 1667. 25 x 39,7 cm (Karte), gesamt 32 x 39,7 cm. Im unbedruckten Randbereich Papierschäden, daher vollständig mit Japan hinterlegt. Hellwig, Mittelrhein und Moselland im Bild alter Karten, Nr. 48 mit Abbildung S. 108. Rosar 5.1.1. Die Karte zeigt das Gebiet zwischen Brüssel, Köln, Wetzlar, Heidelberg und Chalon sur Marne mit Trier im Zentrum. Die Städte sind mit dem lateinischen und dem aktuellen Namen bezeichnet, die Landschaften, Gebirge und Siedlungsgebiete der antiken Stammesverbände sind benannt. Oben rechts befindet sich die Titelkartusche, daneben das Wappen des Bistums Trier. Unterhalb der Karte befindet sich auf der selben Breite wie das Kartenbild eine Panoramaansicht der Stadt Trier über die Mosel hinweg. Die Darstellung zeigt das Gebiet zwischen St. Maria ad Martyres und St. Medard. Die Stadt wird mit ihrer Mauer, der Römerbrücke und den Abteien vor der Mauer gezeigt, Trier selbst wird beherrscht von der Gruppe Dom, Liebfrauen, Gangolf und Basilika. Am Moselufer liegen Lastschiffe, das Martinskloster mit seiner Mühle wird gezeigt. Die Karte ist erschienen in Christoph Brouwer und Jakob Masen, Antiquitates et annales Treverenses, Lüttich 1670. "Der aus Arnheim in Geldern gebürtige Jesuit Christoph Brouwer (1559-1617) vertrat seinen Orden in Köln, Fulda und Trier, dem damaligen Zentrum des rheinischen Jesuitenordens. Bis zu seinem Tode arbeitete Brouwer an seinem regionalgeschichtlichen Hauptwerk, den Annalen des Trierischen Stiftes, in dem die historischen Ereignisse bis zum Ableben des Verfassers festgehalten sind. Die erste Teilausgabe wurde zwei Jahre nach Brouwers Tod veröffentlicht, weil die kurfürstliche Zensur bestimmte Passagen des Werkes bemängelt hatte. Eine vollständige Ausgabe erschien aber erst 1670 nach zusätzlicher Bearbeitung durch den Jesuitenkollegen Jakob Masen, der die Trierer Geschichte bis 1652 fortsetzen konnte. Nikolaus Person (gest. 1710) stammte aus Longwy in Ostfrankreich und war seit 1668 am kurfürstlichen Hof in Mainz als Geometer und Ingenieur beschäftigt. Neben dieser Tätigkeit unterhielt er einen eigenen Verlag und eine Kupferstecherwerkstatt. Andere Illustrationen in diesem Buch sind signiert von Nikolaus Person oder Caspar Merian, dem Sohn des Matthaeus Merian (Kat.Nr. 4.1.1.a). Als vermutlicher Autor von Karte und Ansicht kann Person gelten; sie ist sein erstes bekanntes Werk. Das Datum der Karte (1667) zeigt, daß die Vorbereitungen zu diesem Buch schon einige Jahre vorher aufgenommen worden waren. Die Ansicht im unteren Teil der Karte nimmt eine besondere Stellung in der Tradition der Trierer Stadtdarstellung ein. Vorne links liegt St. Marien ad Martyres, ein Stück oberhalb ist St. Paulin im altem Bauzustand mit westlicher Doppelturmfront erkennbar. Das Gelände vor der Stadt ist in diesem Bereich durch Felder, Obstwiesen und Feldwege strukturiert, die in Ansätzen schon die späteren Straßenzüge von Paulin-, Zeughaus-, Maar- und Engelstraße vorzeichnen. Der 1646 vollendete Neubau St. Maximins taucht mit den umliegenden Häusern ein erstes Mal als Motiv einer Trierer Stadtansicht auf, ebenfalls der neue Westflügel der Abtei St. Martin von 1626. Das Äußere von Liebfrauen überrascht durch den fehlenden Westarm und die sehr hohen Kreuzarme nach Norden und Süden. Rechts von St. Gangolf ragt der kurz zuvor fertiggestellte Kanzlei- und Archivturm heraus, an dessen Seite man die Kurfürstliche Residenz nach den Umbauten von 1615 bis 1647 mit neuem Dach und Doppeltürmen im Süden der Anlage sieht. Der im Sturm geknickte Helm St. Irminens ist im wiederaufgebauten Zustand von 1638 abgebildet. Die geschweiften Giebel der Matthias-Westfront von 1650 sind demgegenüber nicht zu sehen; auch fehlen die alten Ruinen neben dem Richardsturm im Süden und auf der Moselinsel. Interessante Details sind die kleine Brücke neben St. Barbara und die Eintragung der Heiligkreuzkirche oberhalb von Löwenbrücken. Als eine der wenigen originalen Aufnahmen au

Physiologica in this sense included discourses on physics, chemistry, meteorology, medicine & related subjects as well as observations that we would still classify as physiology [eg dog's digestive system]. There are accounts of purely chemical research. According to Fulton "the importance of this work lies in the fact that in a very real sense it was a prologue to the Sceptical Chymist since it continued the attack on the alchemists began in New experiments, and actually it was as much of a landmark in the history of chemistry" [as those other works]. It gives the first clear outline of his corpuscular theory of the nature of matter (Fulton 29, Wellcome I 221, Garrison & Morton).

        Respuesta de Espana al Tratado de Francia Sobre law Pretensiones de.

      1667 - The Legal Arguments that Led to the War of Devolution [Ramos Del Manzano, Francisco (1604-1683)]. Respuesta de Espana al Tratado de Francia Sobre las Pretensiones de la Reyna Christianissima Ano M.DC.LX.VII. [Antwerp or Madrid]: N.p., 1667. [x], 285 fols. Copperplate pictorial title page. Folio (12" x 8"). Contemporary vellum, gilt frames to boards, lettering piece and gilt ornaments to spine. Some rubbing and soiling, chipping to spine along front joint, chipping to edges of lettering piece, boards slightly bowed. Minor worming to front hinge, interior otherwise fresh. Ex-library. Small embossed stamp to title page and seven additional leaves at rear. A handsome copy. * This appears to be the only edition of a set of legal arguments refuting France's attempts to lay claim to portions of the Spanish Netherlands. "Louis's claims to the Spanish Netherlands [in 1667] were tenuous. His wife, Maria Theresa, the daughter of Philip IV, had renounced her rights of a Spanish inheritance in return for a large dowry at the time of her marriage. The dowry had yet to be paid, however. When Philip died in 1665, Louis' lawyers justified Louis's possible claims by arguing that, while Spanish laws of succession meant the throne of Philip IV would pass to his son Charles II, ancient laws of Duchy of Brabant ruled that the Spanish Netherlands could 'devolve' to Philip's daughter from his first marriage, Louis's wife." (Wikipedia). Spain's refusal to acquiesce to Louis's demands led to the War of Devolution (1667-68). Francisco Ramos del Manzano was a lawyer, an eminent professor of law at the University of Salamanca and archdeacon of Malaga. He was a lawyer in the Council of Castile during reign of Felipe IV and was an instructor to Carlos II. The New Catholic Encyclopedia says he was "among the illustrious writers of treatises in the 16th and 17th century" and that he enjoyed "high prestige in the most distinguished circles of Europe." Peeters-Fontainas suggests this book was printed in Brussels while Palau says Antwerp. The copies listed on OCLC suggest Madrid. 4 copies located in the United States: UC Berkeley, UC Bancroft Library, Ransom Library and the Newberry Library. New Catholic Encyclopedia VIII 551.
