Swammerdam struggled to avoid using any attractive powers, whether of the mouth, of the lungs themselves, or of a partial vacuum, to explain the rushing of air into the lungs ... Swammerdam argued that the muscular expansion of the chest outward pushes the ambient air down into the lungs' (DSB). Swammerdam's theory, evolved in ignorance of Boyle's idea that the air has a springiness, was easily destroyed in the following year by John Mayow in his Tractatus duo (Oxford, 1668).

        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. Fine copy from the Macclesfield library with bookplate. .

        De Motionibus Naturalibus a Gravitate Pendentibus Liber

      (4) ff., 566 pp., (3) ff. Bound in contemporary vellum. Excellent. Very rare first edition of this important work on mechanics by Borelli and the first treatise on capillarity. It contains the important investigations from which the author formulated the law that the height of the ascent of liquids in capillary tubes is inversely proportional to their diameters. His investigations also led him to the conclusion that the phenomenon of capillarity is independent of the pressure of air. The work is said to have caused the quarrel between the author and Prince Leopold of Tuscany, who wished to incorporate it in the Saggi of the Accademia del Cimento, while Borelli wanted to publish it in his own name. Borelli was the central figure in that organization; and soon after his departure in 1667, it ceased to function. De Motionibus was well known among Borelli's contemporaries and appeared in three subsequent editions, testifying to its influence. Encompassing many of the experimental bases which ten years later would underlie his De Motu Animalium of 1680-81, Borelli himself had considered it preparatory to that later work. This particular copy has the distinguished provenance of the mathematician Michel Chasles (about whom see the biography in DSB III.212-15.) * DSB II.306-14; Riccardi I.159-60.

Extra engraved titlepage in first and second volumes. Plate of arms in first, third, and fourth volumes. Contemporary calf, leather labels, spines gilt extra. Minor rubbing, some light edge wear. Final text leaf in first volume torn but no loss. Overall a fine, particularly fresh set in the original bindings. The best edition, after the original abridged edition of 1654. This extensive work is full of detailed descriptions of life in the French Antilles, including natural history, slaves, plantation activities, and the like. The fine engraved plates depict sugar plantation work, slaves manufacturing indigo, animals, spiders, land and naval battles between the French and British in the Caribbean, etc. The maps are of St. Christopher, Guadeloupe, St. Croix, Marigalande, and Martinique. "This voluminous account of the French settlements in the West Indies contains numerous passages which indicate the importance of tobacco in the political economy of the islands" - Arents. According to Rich, Dutertre was forced to publish the original 1654 edition before the work was complete: "The first edition of Father Du Tertre's HISTORY OF THE ANTILLES, or rather the project of that work, which the Rev. Father was obliged to put to press in haste, because he understood that some other person was about printing it under some other name, thereby depriving him of the credit of it." SABIN 21458.

        RESPUESTA DE ESPAÑA AL TRATADO DE FRANCIA sobre las pretensiones de la Reyna Christianissima

      (Amberes ó Madrid) 1667 - Folio, bello frontis con grabado de cobre al buril de distintas viñetas, 10h, 285 folios. Pergamino de época con título rotulado en el lomo. Ejemplar limpio y en buen estado. Esta obra parece ser la única edición de una serie de argumentos jurídicos refutando intentos de Francia para reivindicar partes de los Países Bajos españoles. "Las afirmaciones de Luis a los Países Bajos españoles [en 1667] fueron tenues. Su esposa, María Teresa, hija de Felipe IV, había renunciado a sus derechos de herencia española a cambio de una gran dote en el momento de su matrimonio. La dote no se había pagado aún, sin embargo. Cuando Felipe IV murió en 1665, los abogados de Louis justificaron las posibles reclamaciones de Luis con el argumento de que, si bien la legislación española de la sucesión destinados al trono de Felipe IV pasaría a su hijo Carlos II, las antiguas leyes de ducado de Brabante gobernados que los Países Bajos españoles podrían "devolver" a la hija de Felipe de su primer matrimonio, la esposa de Louis ".La negativa de España a aceptar las demandas de Luis XIV llevó a la Guerra de Devolución (1667-1668). Francisco Ramos del Manzano fue un abogado, un eminente profesor de derecho en la Universidad de Salamanca y el arcediano de Málaga. Él era abogado en el Consejo de Castilla durante el reinado de Felipe IV y fue instructor de Carlos II. La Nueva Enciclopedia Católica dice que estaba "entre los escritores ilustres tratadistas del siglo XVI y XVII", y que le disfrutaba de "gran prestigio en los círculos más distinguidos de Europa."Peeters-Fontainas sugiere que este libro fue impreso en Bruselas, mientras que Palau dice Amberes. Las copias aparecen en OCLC , Madrid. 4 ejemplares ubicados en los Estados Unidos: la Universidad de California en Berkeley, UC Bancroft Library, Ransom Library y la Biblioteca Newberry.

        Respuesta de Espana al Tratado de Francia Sobre law Pretensiones de

      1667. [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.

        Synopsis optica, in qua illa omnia quae ad opticam, dioptricam, catoptricam pertinent, id est, ad triplicem radium visualem directum, refractum, reflexum breviter quidem, accurate tamen demonstrantur

      Lyon: Horace Boissat & Georges Remeus, 1667. First edition of Fabri&#146;s great work on optics which was the inspiration for Newton&#146;s work on light and colours as it was through this work that Newton learned of Grimaldi&#146;s discovery of the diffraction of light.<br/><br/> & & Fabri describes the rings of Saturn (he was involved in a long dispute with Huygens over their interpretation), difficulties of telescopic observations, and the construction of compound microscopes. He presents a theory of the blueness of the sky based on the principle of dispersion. There is also a careful exposition of theories of vision and the mechanics of the eye. <br/><br/> & & Fabri (1606-88), &#147;mathematician and physicist, was born near Belley, France, educated at the Collège de la Trinité in Lyon, and ordained a Jesuit priest in 1635. He taught metaphysics, astronomy, mathematics, and natural philosophy at the Collège from 1640 until 1646, when he went to Rome, remaining there for the rest of his life. Fabri engaged in research and controversy on a wide range of scientific issues, including heliocentrism, the explanation of tides, and the circulation of the blood (he discovered the latter, independently of, and later than, Harvey, in about 1636); his writings on light and colors contributed to the science of optics&#148; (Albert et al, Source Book in Ophthalmology, p. 100). <br/><br/>& & De Vitry 379; Macclesfield 754 (not in Honeyman, Horblit or Norman); Albert et al 709; Goldsmith F45; Jesuit Science in the Age of Galileo 12; Sommervogel III 515; Vagnetti EIIIb58; Wellcome III, p.3. & 4to: 223 x 156 mm.

(Smith was one of the translators of the Authorised [King James] Version of the Bible, for which he also wrote the Preface). The Dictionary of National Biography describes Babington's writing style as 'quaint and pleasant'. The frontispiece portrait of Bishop Babington is by Elstrack. Tipped-in before the lower endpapers is a handwritten register of the family of John Whorwood, recording the birth of his children (five daughters and a son), between 1619-1626. The birth of his son was witnessed by the Earl of Northampton. (The family could perhaps be related to the Jane Whorwood who assisted Charles I during the Civil War, and tried unsuccessfully to break him out of imprisonment in 1648). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Temple. Sacred Poems, And private Ejaculations. By Mr. George Herbert, late Oratour of the University of Cambridge. The Ninth Edition, witih an Alphabeticall Table for ready finding out chief places. Psal. 29. In his Temple doth every man speak of his honour.

      Printed: 1667. 1593-1633 Duodecimo, . Nineth edition of the first book, the second Fifth edition. [*]6, A-L12, K6; A-C12. The text of the Temple includes the pattern poems, "The Altar," and "Easter Wings." Herbert's reputation rests on this remarkable collection of poems which mark perfectly the metaphysical tone of his spiritual unrest, which is resolved in final peace, "the Herbert we know through 'Aaron,' 'Discipline,' 'The Collar,' 'The Pulley,' and many other poems in which he strives to subdue the willful or kindle the apathetic self. His principal themes are those 'two vast, spacious things . Sinne and Love.' There is nothing soft in the poet who seeks to engrave divine love in steel; and a catalogue of gratuitous, untempered, and short-lived sweets leads up to the magnificent contrast of the disciplined soul that 'never gives.' "As the Anglican merges with the greater poet, so the 'quaint' writer merges with the metaphysical. Herbert had his share of the age's passion for anagrams and the like, which Addison was to condemn as 'false wit.' But the poet who could shape a poem in the physical likeness of 'The Altar' or 'Easter Wings' had, even more than most of his fellows, a functional sense of meter and rhythm. The technical experimentalist and master was, we remember, a skilled and devoted musician. The movement of his verse, taut or relaxed, can suggest all his fluctuating moods, from self-will or weakness to joyful surrender and assured strength. He moves from this world to the world of the spirit 'As from one room t'another,' or dwells simultaneously in both, and it is in keeping with that habit of mind, and with metaphysical origins in general, that many of his poems should be allegorical anecdotes, transfigured emblems. Apart from some of his fine dramatic openings, Herbert does not attempt the high pitch of Donne's 'Divine Poems.' His great effects are all the greater for rising out of a homely, colloquial quietness of tone; and peace brings quiet endings- 'So I did sit and eat;' 'And I reply'd, My Lord.' Though the friend and admirer of Donne (and of Bacon), Herbert did not cultivate scholastic or scientific imagery; mature and everyday life, the Bible and the liturgy were his chief sources. The highest truth, as he said more than once, must be plainly dressed. In spite of his classical learning and his Latin and Greek verse, he avoided the common surface classicism of the time. Of the elements of a deeper classicism, if we care to use that name, he had muscular density, precision, deceptive simplicity, and a dynamic sense of form. At times his structure may be a winding stair, but it is all built of seasoned timber." (D. Bush, English Literature in the Earlier Seventeenth Century, pages 137-138.)

        Le blason des armoiries de tous les Chevaliers de l'ordre de la Toison D'Or. Depuis la premiere institution iusques ? present. Avec leurs noms, surnoms, titres, et cartiers, Ensemble leurs Eloges descrites en bref, le tout recueilly, par Jean Baptiste Maurice, Heraut et Roy D'Armes de la Maist? catholique.

      A La Haye, Chez Jean Rammazeyn Imprimeur, 1667. In folio, pp. 2 bianche, front., doppia ant. incisa in rame a p. p., 32 n. n., 494, 6 n. n., 2 bianche, mm. incisioni in rame con stemmi araldici dei componenti e delle famiglie appartenenti all'Ordine (una per ogni p. num.) leg. orig. in robustissima pelle marrone con dorso a 5 nervi, fregi e titolo in oro, punte in rame a coprire gli angoli dei piatti (messe successivamente), ex libris di appartenenza. L'Ordine del Toson d'Oro ? uno degli ordini cavallereschi pi? antichi e illustri. Fu fondato dal Duca di Borgogna Filippo il Buono, il 10 gennaio 1429, per celebrare le proprie nozze con Isabella di Portogallo, e comprendeva in origine 30 cavalieri (50 a partire dal 1516). Fra questi, il Sovrano nominava un Tesoriere, un Re d'Armi e un Cancelliere. Fin dalle proprie origini l'Ordine "fece demostratione de tre cose: Religione, Sublimit?, Apparati" come narrato da Prospero de Camulis, ambasciatore di Francesco Sforza alla corte di Borgogna, in una sua lettera del 9 maggio 1461. L'Ordine veniva riservato solo ai principi o grandi di Spagna o altissimi dignitari. Con la morte di Carlo il Temerario, ossia nel 1477, l'Ordine pass?, tramite la figlia Maria, agli Asburgo, in persona del futuro Imperatore Massimiliano, che lo trasmise ai propri discendenti. Quando la casa d'Absburgo eredit? il Gran Magistero dell'Ordine, Carlo V accord? numerosi privilegi a questa nobilissima istituzione cavalleresca. Nel 1712, nel contesto della lotta per la successione alla Corona di Spagna, il pretendente della Casa d'Austria reclam? la Sovranit? sull'Ordine e si impadron? del tesoro del Toson d'Oro nel 1714, che dal 1794 ? conservato a Vienna. Con l'abdicazione di Carlo V, il Gran Magistero dell'Ordine del Toson d'Oro venne mantenuto dalle case regnanti d'Austria e di Spagna. Nel 1700, essendosi estinta la linea spagnola, la casa d'Austria pretese di essere l'unica detentrice del Gran Magistero. Ma il re di Spagna Filippo V protest? e dopo lunghe discussioni, le due case regnanti s'accordarono di conferire, ciascuna per proprio conto, l'insigne Ordine. Da allora esistono dunque due rami dell'Ordine, ciascuno dei quali si considera come il solo legittimo: uno ha per Sovrano il Capo della Casa d'Austria, il secondo il Re di Spagna. Ulteriori diramazioni si ebbero con il regno di Giuseppe Bonaparte, e con quelli dei Pretendenti Carlisti, i quali si proclamarono Sovrani dell'Ordine e fecero alcune nomine. Ô curioso notare, in proposito, che i cultori di ordini cavallereschi, riferendosi al Toson d'Oro, usano il vocabolo "Sovranit?" per indicare la qualit? di Gran Maestro e ci? per ricordare come trattasi di un'eredit? autonoma e indipendente dalle Corone di Austria o Spagna, con proprie regole di trasmissione. L'Imperatore Napoleone Bonaparte aveva poi progettato un Ordine dei Tre Tosoni d'Oro, di cui furono redatti gli statuti e disegnate le insegne, nelle quali l'aquila napoleonica ghermiva tre velli di pecora d'oro, simbolo della Spagna, della Francia (Borgogna) e dell'Austria. Tale decorazione non fu mai n? concessa n? coniata, se ne conoscono solo alcune riproduzioni moderne. La decorazione consiste in un tosone o vello di pecora d'oro appeso a una collana composta di acciarini e pietre focaie. Il nastro dell'Ordine ? rosso. Normali tracce alla legatura, piccola mancanza della carta al frontespizio (per togliere una semplice nota manoscritta, forse un nome di appartenenza, di cui restano comunque tracce) coperta con un ritaglio di carta diversa. Peraltro esemplare magnificamente conservato, con finissime incisioni dalla bella impressione e con una carta dalla piacevole consistenza. Buonissimo stato di conservazione.
