        China monumentis, qua sacris qua profanis, nec non variis naturae & artis spectaculis, aliarumque rerum memorabilium argumentis illustrata .

      Antwerp Meurs 1667 - First edition, folio (32.5 x 21 cm), additional engraved title (with Amsterdam imprint), portrait of the author, 2 folding maps, 22 plates and illustrations within the text, 2pp. ad at end, occasional staining or spotting, contemporary vellum, stained, occasional light toning, generally a very good fresh copy. 'One of the most influential books in shaping the European conception of China in its day' (Löwendahl). "Gathering his work from other members of the Society [of Jesuits], Kircher wrote one of the century's most influential treatises on China. His primary purpose was to establish the authenticity of the Nestorian monument discovered in Sian, and to that end he produced in print the original Chinese and Syriac inscriptions on the monument, the Chinese text in romanization, and finally a Latin translation and his explication of the Chinese and Syriac texts. In addition, Kircher included a sizeable description of China and other places in Asia. For example, in a section devoted to Christianity in China, he sketched all the old overland routes, including that of Grueber and d'Orville from Agra to Peking, as well as giving a description of Tibet. Following what he thought to be the spread of idolatry from the Near East to Persia, India, and finally to East Asia, Kircher described the religions of China, Japan, and India. There are several chapters on government, customs, geography, fauna, flora, and mechanical arts of China, and a very interesting scholarly discussion of the Chinese language. There is a long Chinese-Latin dictionary. Kircher's volume contains several beautiful pictures taken from Chinese and Mughal originals, which Grueber had brought back to Europe with him in 1664. Although the book was not the product of Kircher's own experience in China, it was frequently used or cited as a source of information by later writers. Some of the information contained in it, for example the text of the Nestorian monument, Roth's description of Hindu religion, and Grueber's description of Tibet, had not appeared in print before."

        Shilhavtiyah [Hebrew] or, the burning of London in the year 1666. Commemorated and improved in a CX discourses, meditations, and contemplations. Divided into four parts, treating of: I. The sins, or spiritual causes procuring that judgment. II. The natural causes of fire, morally applied. III. The most remarkable passages and circumstances of that dreadful fire. IV. Counsels and comfort unto such as are sufferers by the said judgment.

      London printed by R.I. for Thomas Parkhurst at the Golden Bible on London-bridge 1667 - 8vo., with a large folding engraved frontispiece of the fire, (26) + 128 + (4) + 220 + (4) + 144pp., possibly wanting a half-title, skilfully rebound in old-style half calf over marbled boards, flat spine with gilt lines and label. A good copy. First edition: variant issue. Uncommon. Wing R.1876. The folding plate is a dramatic picture of the Fire (London's fier began September the second, 1666>). It depicts a view of London in flames as seen from the south bank of the Thames. There is a maze of houses in the foreground, London bridge crossing a river teeming with small boats (two on fire) and the burning city of London behind with St. Paul's cathedral in its midst. Samuel Rolle (or Rolls), (ca. 1628-1679/80), was a Church of England clergyman, born in London but having enjoyed various preferments outside the city itself. In 1665 it was reported that Rolls 'liveth in or near Kingston upon Thames and practiseth phisick'. Rolls was elected chaplain at Bridewell on 20 October 1669, was ordained in 1677 but never got on with the Bishop of London. From 1664 until his death Rolle was a hospitaller at St. Thomas's Hospital in Southwark. Rolle was far from being alone in using the fire as an excuse for preaching that it was nothing less than God's condemnation of a sinful London. The book is, however, not simply a rant against social decay. It also contains vivid eye witness material on the plight of homeless Londoners forced to camp in tents in Moorfields, and on those, such as carters and landlords, who profited from the catastrophe. The author also describes the dangerous state of ruined buildings, whose tottering walls threatened to collapse on to passers-by. Rolle's book also reveals some interesting observations about the fire, how people felt about it and its effect on Londoners: how some nearly died of fright, the losses that were suffered, how some got lost among the ruins and could not recognise even their own street. He voices his disgust at opportunists profiting from the fire, landlords in the areas not affected who raised their rents, carters who charged extortionate fees to carry away people's belongings, and thieves who looted people's possessions.

      Arnhem (Arnhemiae), Prostant apud Joh. Fridericum Hagium; Deventer (Daventriae), typis descripsit Wilhelmus Wier, 1667 - 1668. 4to. 3 parts in 1: (IV, frontispiece & title),(IX),181,(3 blank),239,(1) p., mathematical woodcut illustrations. Vellum 20 cm (Ref: STCN p.p. 053564642; Hoffmann 2,388; Ebert 10715; Brunet 3,494; Graesse 3,446/447) (Details: Greek text with Latin translation. Engraved frontispiece designed by J. van Steegeren, depicting a company of 6 Greek mathematicians, Aristoxenus, Ptolemaeus, Euclides, Nicomachus, Iamblichus and in their midst Pythagoras. Title printed in red and black. Occasional mathematical woodcut illustrations. Each of the 3 parts has a different title; the 2nd and 3rd part show the imprint: 'Daventriae, typis Wilhelmi Wier, 1667') (Condition: Vellum soiled. Endpapers inscribed; 2 bookplates on the front pastedown. Paper partly severely browned) (Note: This is the 'editio princeps' of a commentary, or paraphrase which the Greek neoplatonic philosopher Iamblichus, ca. 240 - 325 AD, wrote of Nicomachus of Gerasa's (surviving) 'Arithmêtikê eisagôgê', or 'Institutio Arithmetica'. Nichomachus was a neoplatonic philosopher who probably lived ca. 100 AD. The 'institutio' which Nicomachus wrote, is an introduction to the arithmetic knowledge necessary for the understanding of the work of Plato and treatises of the Neopythagoreans. It consists more or less of a compilation of the general number theory of the Pythagoreans. Nichomachus discusses the one/many, even/uneven, several kinds of natural numbers and prime numbers. The Latin translation which Boethius produced in late antiquity of Nicomachus' 'Institutio' has profoundly influenced medieval mathematics. In the 9th century it was translated into Syrian and Arabic. The commentary/paraphrase 'On the introduction of the Arithmetic' of Nicomachus Gerasenus which Iamblichus wrote 2 centuries later, was originally a part of a greater work on Pythagorism, consisting of 10 books, of which the greater part was lost. Neoplatonists and Pythagoreans valued mathematics highly. It was possible, they thought, to acquire knowledge of the universe and ultimately one self through mathematics. So, the most appropriate knowlegde to human nature was mathematics.It was understood as the study of the structure of reality. § According to Hoffmann the 'De Fato' is the 7th and 8th chapter of Sectio VIII of Iamblichus work 'De Mysteriis Aegyptiorum'. The complete 'De Mysteriis' (On the Mysteries) was first published in Oxford in 1678 by Thomas Gale. So this fragment of 'De Fato' is in fact the 'editio princeps' of a small part (2 chapters) of the 'De Mysteriis'. Iamblichus argued in his 'On the Mysteries' that the gods help man on his way, and that they respond to prayer and offer supernatural guidance. § This 'editio princeps' was produced by the Dutch scholar Samuel Tennulius, or Samuel Ten Nuyl, who was from 1667 professor of History and Eloquence of the Academy at Nijmegen. He fled for the French, who were plundering the Eastern part of the Netherlands in 1672, and ended up in Arnhem, an unlikely place for the printing of a the work of a classical author, let alone an 'editio princeps'. He was born in Deventer and was since 1643 the father-in-law of J.F. Gronovius, who in the beginning of his career taught on the Athenaeum at Deventer before his professorship at Leyden. Tennulius is said to have been an excellent linguist and mathematician. Besides this Iamblichus edition he published a fragment of 'De Urbibus' of Stephanus Byzantinus (Amst., 1669), 'Agathemeris Compendiariae Expositionis Geographiae libri II' (Amst., 1671), and an edition of Frontinus (Leiden/Amst., 1675). (Van der Aa 18, p. 63/64 & 'Inventarisatie Egodocumenten tot 1814 deel 1' on the site of 'Onderzoeksinstituut Egodocument en Geschiedenis') Tennulius stayed in Paris from 1659-1660 (why, we donot know), where he closely befriended the famous French classical scholar Henri de Valois, or Henricus Valesius, 1603-1676. In the preface Tennulius tells us of his daily visits to the Frenchman, how deeply he grew attached to him, (ut mittam reliqua amoris vestigia (eius)' p. II), and that he learned a lot of him (ab ore viri pependerim; & vidisse erat erudiri. (p.I)). Valesius not only instructed him, but introduced him also to other Parisian men of letters. Valesius obviously had a high opion of the capacities of his Dutch friend, for he even assigned him to lend a manuscript of Iamblichus from the 'Bibliotheca Memmiana', to make a transcript and to publish it. Tennulius did more than produce an edition of this difficult text of Iamblichus on Nicomachus' 'introductio', he also provided a Latin translation, and extensive commentary. The book consists of 3 parts, the first is the Greek text with a facing Latin translation, at the end of which Tennulius filled 5 pages with a short fragment concerning a treatise of Iamblichus called 'De Fato, which he had found in the Royal Library at Paris. The second part (56 pages) contains the commentary on Nicomachus' 'introductio', which was published by the German genius Joachim Camerarius in Augsburg in 1554. His commentary was the best that was written during the Renaissance. So it seems a wise decision of Tennelius to incorporate this in his edition) (Provenance: The front flyleaves and endpapers in the rear have been inscribed in Italian. On the front endpapers, which has a pair of flyleaves, we find the name of this inscriber: 'ex Bibliotheca Joh. Bapt Riarii Bononiensis Patricii'. This book once belonged to a member of the Bolognese branch of the Italian noble dynasty Riario. It had members who were dukes, cardinals and marquises. We donot know which Giovanni Battista Riario inscribed the endpapers. The handwriting, legible, but often difficult, seems contemporary. The inscription seems the concept of a treatise, or is a summary, entitled: 'Della Pittura perfetta Ideale, o bello sublime'. On the flyleaf at the end is what seems to be the layout of a title page for a publication of Riario, entitled: 'Prodromi alla perfetta cognitione dalla strutura'. Riario is designated there as 'G.B. Riario Lombardo Patricio Bolognese. § 2 bookplates have been pasted on the front pastedown. In the centre of the first one an engraved bookplate: 'Ex bibliotheca Michaelis Chasles, Acad. Scientiar. Socii'. Michel Chasles, 1793-1880, was a French philosopher and mathematician, appointed in 1841 professor of the 'École Polytechnique'. (See Wikipedia s.v. Michel Chasles, with his portrait); at the verso of the second front flyleaf: 'Venant de la vente Chasles du mardi 19 Juillet 1881, 3 fr. 20'; then the signature of 'P. Laffitte'.

"Münster" Nr. 24; Fauser 9370+9371; Westfalia picta VIII,33. Außerordentlich dekoratives und detailreiches Blatt: Die obere Ansicht zeigt blattbreit das Stadtpanorama von der Westseite in Friedenszeiten, darunter Darstellung der Belagerung im August 1657 durch Bischof Christoph Bernhard v. Galen, unter der Darstellung ausführliche gestochene Beschreibung von A bis X und 1 bis 29. (aus: Merian, Theatrum Europaeum 1667). Nach dem Westfälischen Frieden (1648) hatte sich der Stadtrat bemüht, für Münster den Status einer Freien Reichsstadt zu erhalten (und dadurch nicht mehr dem Bischof von Münster, sondern nur noch dem Kaiser in Wien untertan zu sein). Dies führte zum Konflikt mit dem Bischof, der nun die Stadt mit verbündeten Truppen belagerte, heftig bombardierte und nach zwei Monaten eroberte. Siehe hierzu ein ähnliches Motiv: Nachstich der beiden Merian'schen Belagerungsansichten von Gualdo Priorato, Wien 1670 (#5965AG).

        A scarce relic of the famous pear tree planted by Peter Stuyvesant in 1687.

      n.p. [New York City]: , n.d, 1667. n.p. [New York City], n.d.. 3.5". "(Stuyvesant Pear Tree) A beautifully turned relic from the Stuyvesant Pear Tree, 3.5"" high and 1""at its base to which is affixed a small paper label with the note: ""Stuyvesant Pear Tree"". Small scuffs along portion of base, else fine condition.Peter Stuyvesant returned to New York in 1667 after a three year absence following the British takeover of the city. When he returned as a private citizen, he brought with him a flowering pear tree which he planted at what is now the corner of Third Avenue and East 13th Street. Stuyvesant planted the tree ""by which my name may be remembered."" The tree stood there for exactly 200 years as the city grew and developed around it. According to an article in Harper's Monthly, the tree was considered ""the oldest living thing in the city of New York."" The winter of 1867 however delivered a blow from which the venerable tree could not recover. A massive winter storm in 1867 weakened the tree significantly. And, despite the iron fence that had been erected, it was not sufficient to protect the tree from the collision of two drays (low flat carts), one of which was thrown against the tree. The tree, which had become a tourist attraction as one of the last physical vestiges of the Dutch presence in the city, had to be taken down. The New York Times lamented the death of the pear tree, ""One after another, by the accident of fire or the design of improvement, the few relics of our city's early history have disappeared; the original fort upon the artery; the first Stat-house at the head of Coenties-slip; the Cingle, or the wall, that shut out the Indians and gave the name to Wall-street; the modest wooden Church on the site of the stately Trinity; the Huguenot Conventicle in Frankfort-street ; the quaint old shops in Broad-street with their step-ladder gables and their five-by-six panes of glass - all these have gone. Reverence has been burned these hundred years, and the 'improvement' of the present day would not hesitate to run a horse-railroad throughout the ruins of the Coliseum or into the gate kept by St. Peter -- if it would pay ... There is- or was - far up town, however, a single memorial of the ancient dynasty - the last direct and certain link that held us to the true origin of our City. This was the 'Stuyvesant Pear Tree,' standing at the corner of Third-Avenue and Thirteenth-street -- a withered and venerable specimen, that for a dozen years has feebly held up a bunch of dead limbs with but one or two that were endowed with life -- that had diminished its once prolific yield of a hundred, fifty, twenty and half a dozen pears. That old tree is gone at last; it has been practically dead for two or three years ; but not - like Yorick's skull - quite chapfallen ; it is broken and the tree he planted at his gateway more than two centuries since, having done its work, has gone the way of all the living""*A small cross section of the tree was given to the New York Historical Society and is part of their permanent collection. A plaque now marks the spot where this venerable tree once stood. Other sections were turned into keepsakes by enterprising entrepreneurs including the present example. From the collection of John S. ReigartJohn S. Reigart was born in 1833 or 1834 in New York City where he resided for most of his life. By occupation, he was a bank clerk with very precise penmanship which is evident on his identification label. During the mid and late 19th century, Reigart assembled a comprehensive collection of relics from every period of America’s history. He was clearly aware of the importance of provenance of all the pieces in his collection and included detailed documentation in the form of period ink script notes, most of which he attached to the actual artifacts. About ten years ago, Reigart’s collection was discovered in the estate of a deceased Connecticut book dealer."

Small 4to, attractive antique panelled reversed calf. Kiel: J. Reumann for J. Lüderwald, 1667. First edition of a scarce and important book; "the first successful intravenous use of drugs in man for anesthetic purposes was by Johann Major (1667) of Kiel."-Wangensteen, The Rise of Surgery, p. 287. "In the Prologue to this work, Major explains his general intent and illustrates with a striking woodcut his method of performing intravenous infusion…His work included blood transfusion as well as the injection of medicinal substances. Also included in the book are letters to Major from various contemporaries who criticized his work and compared it with their own research. Major discusses their arguments and provides substantiation for his work… "Major (1634-93), a native of Breslau, Germany, received his medical degree at Padua in 1660. He practiced medicine at Hamburg and Wittenberg before being appointed the first professor of medicine at Kiel in 1665. Although there is some controversy with regard to priority in blood transfusion, Major may be clearly credited with the first successful injection of a medicinal substance into the vein of a human in 1662."-Heirs of Hippocrates 598. Depicted on page two is the famous woodcut of an intravenous infusion; Major used a silver cylinder with a cannula-like spout at the bottom. The blood in the cylinder was ejected into recipient by a piston. Fine copy. ❧ Garrison-Morton 1963. Sim, The Heritage of Anesthesia, p. 177.

        A scarce relic of the famous pear tree planted by Peter Stuyvesant in 1687.

      n.p. [New York City], n.d.. 3.5". "(Stuyvesant Pear Tree) A beautifully turned relic from the Stuyvesant Pear Tree, 3.5"" high and 1""at its base to which is affixed a small paper label with the note: ""Stuyvesant Pear Tree"". Small scuffs along portion of base, else fine condition.Peter Stuyvesant returned to New York in 1667 after a three year absence following the British takeover of the city. When he returned as a private citizen, he brought with him a flowering pear tree which he planted at what is now the corner of Third Avenue and East 13th Street. Stuyvesant planted the tree ""by which my name may be remembered."" The tree stood there for exactly 200 years as the city grew and developed around it. According to an article in Harper's Monthly, the tree was considered ""the oldest living thing in the city of New York."" The winter of 1867 however delivered a blow from which the venerable tree could not recover. A massive winter storm in 1867 weakened the tree significantly. And, despite the iron fence that had been erected, it was not sufficient to protect the tree from the collision of two drays (low flat carts), one of which was thrown against the tree. The tree, which had become a tourist attraction as one of the last physical vestiges of the Dutch presence in the city, had to be taken down. The New York Times lamented the death of the pear tree, ""One after another, by the accident of fire or the design of improvement, the few relics of our city's early history have disappeared; the original fort upon the artery; the first Stat-house at the head of Coenties-slip; the Cingle, or the wall, that shut out the Indians and gave the name to Wall-street; the modest wooden Church on the site of the stately Trinity; the Huguenot Conventicle in Frankfort-street ; the quaint old shops in Broad-street with their step-ladder gables and their five-by-six panes of glass - all these have gone. Reverence has been burned these hundred years, and the 'improvement' of the present day would not hesitate to run a horse-railroad throughout the ruins of the Coliseum or into the gate kept by St. Peter -- if it would pay ... There is- or was - far up town, however, a single memorial of the ancient dynasty - the last direct and certain link that held us to the true origin of our City. This was the 'Stuyvesant Pear Tree,' standing at the corner of Third-Avenue and Thirteenth-street -- a withered and venerable specimen, that for a dozen years has feebly held up a bunch of dead limbs with but one or two that were endowed with life -- that had diminished its once prolific yield of a hundred, fifty, twenty and half a dozen pears. That old tree is gone at last; it has been practically dead for two or three years ; but not - like Yorick's skull - quite chapfallen ; it is broken and the tree he planted at his gateway more than two centuries since, having done its work, has gone the way of all the living""*A small cross section of the tree was given to the New York Historical Society and is part of their permanent collection. A plaque now marks the spot where this venerable tree once stood. Other sections were turned into keepsakes by enterprising entrepreneurs including the present example. From the collection of John S. ReigartJohn S. Reigart was born in 1833 or 1834 in New York City where he resided for most of his life. By occupation, he was a bank clerk with very precise penmanship which is evident on his identification label. During the mid and late 19th century, Reigart assembled a comprehensive collection of relics from every period of America’s history. He was clearly aware of the importance of provenance of all the pieces in his collection and included detailed documentation in the form of period ink script notes, most of which he attached to the actual artifacts. About ten years ago, Reigart’s collection was discovered in the estate of a deceased Connecticut book dealer."

        The History of the Royal Society of London, for the improving of natural knowledge.

      London J. Martyn At The Bell 1667 - First edition. Small 4to (20.5 x 16 cm), [14], 438, [2] pp., imprimatur leaf A1 with engraved arms of the Royal Society on the verso, two engraved folding plates facing pages 173 and 233, bound without the frontispiece (as often), woodcut initials, letterpress tables, errata leaf at the end (3I4); contemporary mottled calf gilt, red morocco lettering piece, rebacked preserving spine, lightly rubbed, a very good example. Sprat (1635-1713), Bishop of Rochester, "became a fellow of the Royal Society in 1663. At about the same time he was commissioned to write a 'history' of the society—a public statement of its aims, methods, and achievements, that might meet criticisms of the Royal Society's limited productivity in the three years since its foundation, and quell fears that experimental science would challenge the belief structures of Restoration society. The History is divided into three parts. The first part offers an extended critique of various approaches to natural philosophy from ancient times to the current day. Sprat presents three main categories: first, scholastics, but also those moderns who having abandoned Aristotle established another ancient such as Epicurus as the new authority; second, those, principally the Cartesians, who sought to establish a modern authority; third, the modern experimenters. The second part of the History provides an explanation of the origins of the Royal Society, its experimental method, and its purposes. Here Sprat argues that co-operative scientific effort, as conducted and encouraged by the society, would lessen the antagonisms that led to civil unrest, and, as it included the manual arts, provide for the economic and social betterment of humanity. The society intended a 'Philosophy, for the use of Cities, and not for the retirements of Schools' (History, 76). Part three responds to particular social, cultural, and religious objections to experimental philosophy, and predicts future political and economic leadership for England based on the society's contributions. Sprat portrayed the society (and experimental philosophy) as friends of the universities and their form of learning, as well as of rational Christianity and the church, and of the state" (ODNB).

        Attractive Manuscript Permission to Carry Weapons, (Girolamo, 1622-1684, from 1651 Archbishop of Bologna, from 1664 Cardinal)]

      1667 - in Italian with translation, bearing the Archbishop's family arms of a gold dragon on a red field, with his cardinal's hat and tassels, in strong colours, the text bordered with blue scrolls between pairs of red lines, saying that "Alessandro Pandino's name being inscribed in our roll, he is allowed to bear all kinds of Arms, offensive and defensive, except Arquebuses and daggers, we also prohibit him from carrying firearms ['bocche di fuochi'] in the City, unless passing through", vellum, 7½" x 8", Bologna, date and month left blank, three small wormholes in blank portions, one just crossing a red frame line The Boncompagni family of Bologna rose to high position in the Church with the election in May 1572 of Ugo Boncompagni, Professor of Law at Bologna, as Gregory XIII. One of the Pope's first acts was to legitimate his natural son Giacomo (1548-1612). In 1580, he bought for 11,000 ducats the town of Sora and its castle facing the Kingdom of Naples and made his son the 1st Duke. Girolamo Boncompagni, was thus the Pope's great-grandson. His father the second Duke having died in 1628, he was educated by his uncle Don Francesco, Archbishop of Naples, and went to Rome in 1642. The see of Bologna fell vacant in 1651, and Girolamo, though not yet a priest, and not yet 30, the canonical age for a bishop, was elected the new Archbishop. An Arquebus is an old form of musket, discharging a bullet weighing about 2 ounces. 'Bocca da fuoco' ('mouth of fire') is the term for a gun barrel of any size, but will only be the portable kind here.

        De vi percussionis liber.

      Bologna: Giacopo Monti, 1667. First edition, an extraordinary association copy, of the first published book on the laws of percussion, and containing important hitherto unpublished material from the lectures of Galileo and Torricelli. This copy was a gift from Prince Leopold of Tuscany, Borelli's patron at the Tuscan court. Probably under the influence of Borelli (see below), Leopold, together with his brother Grand Duke Ferdinand, founded the Accademia del Cimento where Borelli first presented much of the experimental work on which this text is based. Although Leopold held Borelli in high esteem, Borelli's decision to publish this work in Bologna rather than as part of the proceedings of the Accademia led to a quarrel between the two men. "In this, Borelli's first book on mechanics, he quotes Galileo's youthful work on percussion, the fourth Dialogo, and lectures by Torricelli. As well as the detailed discussion of impact, the book deals with the dynamics of falling bodies, vibration, gravity, fluid mechanics, magnetism, and pendular motion ... he gives the name resilience for the first time to a number of problems now classed under this name" (Roberts & Trent). This is "the earliest book on the laws of percussion, which undoubtedly influenced John Wallis who, in 1668, published his discovery of the laws governing the percussion of non-elastic bodies, and Christiaan Huygens, who deals with the percussion of elastic bodies in his treatise De motu corporum ex percussion, published in 1669' (Zeitlinger I, 174). Borelli regarded this work, together with his De motionibus naturalibus (1670), as necessary preparation for his masterpiece, De motum animalium (1680-81), on which he had worked since the early 1660s. Provenance: Contemporary manuscript ownership entry on half-title dated 4th August 1668 stating that this copy was a gift from Prince Leopold of Tuscany, 'Dono del Principe Leopoldo de Toscana', i.e., Cardinal Leopoldo dei Medici (1617-75), scholar, patron of the arts, brother of Ferdinando II, Grand Duke of Tuscany (1610-70). "In May 1665, Cardinal Michelangelo Ricci, Roman correspondent and adviser to the Tuscan Court, wrote to Borelli's patron, Leopoldo de Medici, encouraging Borelli to apply himself to the composition of a treatise on motion. According to Ricci, motion was a particularly important topic since so many contemporaries, famed for their contributions to mathematics and philosophy, had dedicated so much time to the topic and had explained so many of nature's secrets. Borelli's initial response was that he was instead concentrating on a treatise on anatomy within which he would insert some words regarding collision of moving bodies. At some point in this discussion, seemingly prompted by an insistence from Ricci, Borelli decided to publish On the Force of Percussion independently from his main project. The intention of the book on colliding bodies was to establish crucial propositions concerning motion as a means of introducing issues related to human and animal movements. "The main problem in question, as Aristotle had put it, was to explain why a heavy axe, as an example, has virtually no effect when rested on a piece of wood but has a much greater impact when it is made to fall from a significant height. Aristotelians believed that the increased force is a result simply of the velocity of the movable; the velocity supposedly artificially increases the weight of the object. For Italian natural philosophers in the seventeenth century, the first point of reference in response to this Aristotelian position is the work carried out by Galileo concerned with motion and mechanics including percussion. In his Mechanics (c. 1590), Galileo claimed that to study percussion, one must consider 'that which has been seen to happen in all other mechanical operations, which is that the force, the resistance, and the space through which the motion is made respectively follow that proportion and obey those laws by which a resistance equal to the force will be moved by this force through an equal space and with equal velocity to that of the mover.' That was to say that it is not only the weight of the body in motion that determines the force of percussion but the distance it travels and its velocity before impact that is required to overcome the resistance of the body being impacted upon. Galileo elaborated on his argument in Discourse Concerning Two New Sciences (1638), where he presented several experiments in which the force of percussion was tested and measured by relying on the proportions of opposing forces (including distances and velocities) rather than simply differences in weight. "In On the Force of Percussion, Borelli agrees with the Galilean proposition that the energies of colliding bodies are not measurable through weight alone. To prove his point, he begins with a series of propositions explaining how a body must be first moved by an impeller in order to acquire a "motive virtue" or "impetus". Upon colliding with another body at rest, that impetus is transmitted to the stationary body, overcomes its resistance proportional to the mass and velocity of the first body and itself sets in motion. Borelli puts it succinctly: 'Despite the horror of some Aristotelians for the migration of the motive virtue, it seems certain that part of the virtue or impetus which was concentrated in the impelling body is distributed and expanded in the struck body.' The 'distribution and expansion' of impetus does not mean that the struck body acquires the same speed as the first, 'impelling' body, only that the motive virtue is preserved and shared between the two bodies--the reactions of these bodies to the collision is proportional to their respective masses. In sum, the impact of colliding bodies occurs in only a moment, but the result of that instant of time--the cause and effect--is dependent upon proportions of velocity and mass ... "This is a strictly mechanical explanation of moving parts of nature reminiscent of Cartesian natural philosophy, whereby motion is explained by the measurements and properties of bodies in contact with each other. In fact, Borelli is explicit in his mechanistic outlook. He contends that the motive virtue of colliding bodies 'clearly occurs in similar machines'. He makes this point with particular regard to bodies with elastic, spring-like properties ... 'If indeed thrown against a wall or against a steady racket, a playing ball or a water-skin or a spring or any elastic machine is compressed or bent proportionally to its impetus and percussion. The water-skin then rebounds with a more violent, i.e. doubled, impetus. The compression and bending of the machine is increased, doubled, in so far as the percussive compression is doubled.' Aside from the allusions to the mechanical properties of nature, the reference here to force resulting from compression is also rather important for our understanding of Borelli's philosophy of motion as it affords him the possibility of considering the spring-like properties of corpuscles. This is an issue to which he returns in his subsequent book [De motionibus naturalibus]" (Boschiero, pp. xiv-xvi). Borelli also makes in this work an important contribution to the discussion of the laws of falling bodies (pp. 107-110). "Borelli's analysis of the trajectory of the falling body, though it is, of course, erroneous, is the best ever made before Hooke and Newton. He is the only one who succeeds in disentangling the purely mathematical point of view from the physical. He is, too, the only man before Hooke who is not dominated and befogged by the traditional conception according to which, whether the Earth moves or stands still, a heavy body has, in any case, to move to the center of the Earth on a perfectly straight line ... Borelli continues to explain that the force of an "oblique" percussion is to be measured no by the impetus along the "oblique" path, but only by that on the perpendicular, which, he adds, enables us to dispose of the argument proposed some time ago by a celebrated author (Borelli does not name Riccioli) according to whom, if the Earth moved, the motion of a body falling from the top of a tower would be uniform, and, therefore, the force of percussion would not increase, at least not perceptibly, with the increase of the altitude of the fall. The celebrated author forgets, Borelli explains, that the point or plane of impact does not stand still in world-space, but is transported together with the tower and the body falling from its top" (Koyré, pp. 358-60). In Chapter 25, Borelli gives a discussion of magnetism thought to be based upon a short treatise by Benedetto Castelli entitled Discorso sopra la calamita, which was discovered in manuscript form among some papers by Galileo in the eighteenth century and eventually published in 1883. This treatise is important as the first example of a theory of magnetism which uses elementary magnets to account for magnetization of iron. The main modification introduced by Borelli is the introduction of a magnetic effluvia or vapour from the loadstone to replace Castelli's propagation of magnetism through the air. Borelli explains magnetization of iron by supposing that "one must postulate that in the iron there are innumerable active and spirited particles. These particles, however, are disposed in a very confused manner, all intertwined in a variety of ways so that not all their Northern poles point in the same direction but are all confusedly mixed...it is necessary to imagine that when the iron is brought near the loadstone and within its sphere, which stems from the exhalation of the vapour of the loadstone, just as by the process of stirring up, the magnetic particles which are within the interstices of the iron are stirred up and turned, and once loosened and set free ... they direct their poles in proper orientation toward the pole of the loadstone." This is not exactly Castelli's theory, but Borelli borrowed Castelli's ideas and combined them with the currently prevailing magnetic theories. Born in Naples, Giovanni Borelli (1608-79) studied mathematics at Rome under Benedetto Castelli. Sometime before 1640 he was appointed professor of mathematics at Messina. In the early 1640s, he met Galileo in Florence. In 1656 Borelli was appointed to the chair of mathematics at the University of Pisa, a post previously held by Galileo. It was in Pisa that Borelli met the Italian anatomist Marcello Malpighi; the two men became founder members of the short-lived Accademia del Cimento. Motivated by Malpighi's own studies, Borelli began his first investigations into the science of animal movement. This began an interest that would continue for the rest of his life, eventually earning him the title of the Father of Biomechanics. "One year after Borelli arrived in Tuscany the Accademia del Cimento held its first session; the year Borelli left, the Cimento quietly died. Indeed, Borelli seems to have been the principal animus of the academy ... the Tuscan court had been thoroughly infected by Galileo's ideas and those of his pupils. Grand Duke Ferdinand II, from the time of his accession to power in 1628 until his death in 1670, maintained a personal laboratory as did Prince Leopold. From the time of the death of the Master, Galileo, informal gatherings met at the court and presented and discussed experiments ... Then, possibly under the crystallizing influence of Borelli, Leopold asked for and received permission from Ferdinand to organize formally an academy for purely experimental research. Under Leopold's aegis it met for the first time in June of 1657 ... Lorenzo Magalotti, after attending the University of Pisa as a student, was appointed secretary in 1660. The Cimento had adopted a policy of submerging the identities of its members and presenting itself as a group. Accordingly, when Magalotti brought out the Saggi di naturali esperienzi fatte nell'Accademia del Cimento in 1666-1667, it appeared anonymously and refrained from identifying the individual contributions of the members ... During the life of the Cimento dissension appeared among the membership; Borelli may have originated some of it. He seems to have chafed under the requirement of anonymity, and by all accounts he was a touchy person to get along with under any circumstances ... "[Borelli] produced two major studies which were not only exercises in pure mechanics but also, in the eyes of Borelli himself, necessary introductions to what he would consider to be his most important work, the De motu animalium. Respectively, these were De vi percussionis (1667) and De motionibus naturalibus a gravitate pendentibus (1670). Both cover considerably more subject matter than their titles indicate. In the first, for instance, Borelli discusses percussion in detail, some general problems of motion, gravity, magnetism, the motion of fluids, the vibrations of bodies, and pendular motion, to cite just a few items. Likewise, in the second, he argues against positive levity, discusses the Torricellian experiment, takes up siphons, pumps, and the nature of fluidity, tries to understand the expansion of water while freezing, and deals with fermentation and other chemical processes. When we consider that all this was the product of years of experimental and theoretical investigation, we should not wonder that he objected to giving it over to be brought out anonymously by the Cimento just because he happened to present a good deal of it before that society. To the apparent displeasure of Leopold, Borelli published De vi percussionis in Bologna. And in the early summer of 1667 he set out once more to Messina ... at this point the Cimento effectively ceased to function, even though it apparently was not formally dissolved, and even though Prince, now Cardinal, Leopold continued to direct some experimental work until he died in 1675. As far as Borelli was concerned, he had been, and afterward remained, on excellent terms with Leopold; and Leopold maintained his high regard for Borelli" (DSB).
