        Philosophia Naturalis. [Manuscript on paper, ca. 1680. Small 4to (215 x 150 mm), 280 leaves, ff. 140v-141 and 257v-258 blank. Latin text in a neat cursive hand with many illustrative diagrams in the text. Watermarks: Heawood, Padua 2597, 2598, 2599 & Venice, 1895, 2864, 3102, 3104.

      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.<br/><br/> <i>Provenance</i>: 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.<br/><br/> "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, <i>Experimenters</i>, 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 <i>Accademia del Cimento</i>] 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 <i>Saggi</i>" (<i>ibid</i>.).<br/><br/> 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 <i>Accademia</i> in 1660 and may have met Rinaldini there. Rinaldini discussed Torricelli's experiments in a famous letter to Boyle of 1 September, 1668 (Boyle, <i>Correspondence</i>, Vol. 4, pp. 91-5). <br/><br/> 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 as 'sun dogs'). This is followed by a discussion of 'new stars' on pp. 285-8, including the supernova observed by Tycho Brahe in 1572 and those of 1618 which were the subject of the dispute between Galileo and Grassi. In the second book on the nature of the heavens, Rinaldini considers several 'world systems', ancient, Ptolemaic, Copernican and Brahean. Here he had to be careful, lecturing in a city in which Bishop Barbarigo was Chancellor: his statement that "The greatest innovation was introduced by Nicolaus Copernicus" is quickly followed by "I dare not approve the Copernican system, as condemned by the church." <br/><br/> The remaining parts of the book deal with 'The Elements', i.e. Air, Earth, Fire and Water, and 'On birth and death,' the nature of generation, corruption, constancy and decline. <br/><br/> Rinaldini published two voluminous books on 'Natural Philosophy'. Of his 1681 work <i>Philosophia Rationalis, Naturalis, atque Moralis</i>, only the first part, titled "Tomus Primus," appeared. This first volume was devoted to dialectics, rhetoric, and poetics, and is unrelated to the subjects covered in the present manuscript. His three-volume <i>Naturalis Philosophia</i> (1693-4) covers a range of material similar to that in the manuscript, but at much greater length, amounting to more than 1600 printed folio pages. The present manuscript is presumably a record of lectures given by Rinaldini which he expanded to form the published work. There is absolutely no doubt that the author is Rinaldini: the general style and his quotations from ancient poets and philosophers are clearly identified with those in his published works. The manuscript may well be in Rinaldini's own hand, but we have not been able to establish that beyond doubt. The only internal evidence is a note on p. 154 in which the writer states that he was a student, at a young age, of Antonio Rocco, <i>olim venerandus Praeceptor meus</i> [my revered teacher]. Antonio Rocco (1586 - 1653) was an Italian priest and teacher of philosophy. If the hand is not Rinaldini's, it is presumably that of a student or amanuensis. A candidate for the latter may be Giovanni Battista Sancti, who is described on its title page as the editor of <i>Naturalis Philosophia</i> and as Rinaldini's amanuensis. <br/><br/> Dating of the manuscript is based on the works cited and commented upon, and supported by the watermarks which are similar to those used in the Veneto area in the mid-seventeenth century. <br/><br/> A full transcription and Italian translation is available on request. <br/><br/> Clelia Pighetti, <i>Il vuoto e la quiete</i>, 2005; C.

        Hahnenkamm. Celosia cristata.

      . Gouache, über Bleistiftskizze, auf Bütten. 32,4 x 24,9 cm. Zu den Rändern hin etwas gebräunt. Verso bezeichnet "Kopetzky", vielleicht als alter Besitzvermerk zu verstehen. Der bedeutende Porträtmaler Johann Kopetzky (1667 - 1740) war seit 1723 in Nürnberg ansässig und dürfte die "Dietzschin" persönlich gekannt haben. Der Hahnenkamm ist im tropischen Asien heimisch und wurde um 1570 in Europa eingeführt. Er ist auch heute noch als Zierpflanze verbreitet.. Die aus einer Künstlerfamilie stammende, international bekannte Malerin und Zeichnerin Barbara Regina Dietzsch war die älteste Tochter des Malers, Zeichners und Radierers J.I. Dietzsch (1681-1754). Ihre Ausbildung erhielt sie wie ihre Schwester Margarete Barbara (1726-1795) sowie ihre fünf jüngeren Brüder in der Werkstatt des Vaters. Mehrmals wurde ihr die Position einer Hofmalerin an europäischen Fürstenhöfen angeboten, die sie jedoch immer ablehnte. 1775 hatte sie einen Schlaganfall, der sie jedoch nicht davon abhielt bis 1781 weiterzuarbeiten. Ihr Hauptbeschäftigungsfeld waren die im 18. Jahrhundert beliebten Darstellungen von Vögeln, Insekten, Blumen und Landschaften sowie Jagdszenen und Porträts, die sich durch Detailgenauigkeit und -freude auszeichnen. In Nürnberg, zu dieser Zeit "Hochburg des naturwissenschaftlichen Verlags- und Illustrationswesens" fanden ihre Arbeiten großen Absatz und hatten vorbildhaften Charakter für die naturgeschichtliche Kabinettmalerei.

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

      Cf. Kessler & Eugene Rachlis, Peter Stuyvesant and his New York. Original letter of safe-conduct, sealed and signed by the Duke of York, the later King James II, for the ship named Nieuw Jorck under captain Pieter Reyersz. van der Beets, giving permission to trade in the city of New York and surrounding areas during the year 1667.

This document, in good condition, complete with the seal, is of the utmost importance for the early history of New York and Anglo-Dutch relations in the third quarter of the 17th century.

      - 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&#146;s A Moral Essay, preferring Solitude to Publick Employment, And all it&#146;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&#146;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&#146;s little volume is attractive in a plain way."&#150;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&#148; x 12&#148; Frame size: 20&#148; x 22&#148; 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.
