        Antignome fisico-matematiche con il nuovo orbe e sistema terrestre .

      Livorno, G.V. Bonfigli, 1667 - 4to (220 x 160 mm), pp xii 179 [1, errata]; title in red and black with woodcut Medici arms, and numerous woodcut diagrams in text; a very good copy, uncut in original carta rustica.First edition, important in the history of post-Galilean atomist physics. Rossetti was a pupil of Borelli and Redi and a convinced Galilean atomist. He developed a philosophical physics compounded of Lucretian atomism, the metaphysics of Gassendi, and the atomism of Galileo's Il Saggiatore. 'In 1667, Rossetti published a pamphlet entitled Antignome fisico-matematica, which openly professed the atomism of The Assayer and, indeed, even without obviously quoting it explicitly, violated the self-censorship agreement which had been maintained until that moment regarding the book, quoting from it in a direct, transparent mention of the famous Democritan passage on mathematical characters in the book of nature. "Among our letters," Rossetti wrote, "some go with the other perfectly, such as the vowels . and such must be the case with Atoms, because if every one conformed with every other in the same way, new species would every day be seen in the World and those already seen would vanish." As if that were not enough, Rossetti polemicized against Father Fabri in defense of the corpuscular emanation of light, "effluvium of corpuscles," and then, a year later, in a polemic with a Bolognese Aristotelian, he referred to the atomism in Galileo's Discourse on Floating Bodies'' (Redondi, Galileo: Heretic p 309).When Rossetti's protector Cardinal Leopoldo de' Medici died in 1675, 'matters endled badlyu; and what he had perhaps wished to be a rehabilitation of Galileo and a celebration of The Assayer's fiftieth anniversary was transformed into a bitter defeat' (op cit).Carli and Favaro 307; Riccardi I.2 594 n 1; OCLC records Michigan only for North America

        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."

The nice and rare engraved frontispiece with oval portrait of Charles XI with Stockholm in the background is unsigned. The renowned Swedish book collector Per Hierta guessed that the engraver might be Hartmann or Padtbrugge. The Swedish law of the sea from 1667 was replaced as late as 1864 and in Finland in 1873. The law was based upon preparatory work by Hendrick de Moucheron which ended in a proposal presented by a commission lead by Seved Bååt in 1665.

Very rare first edition, posthumously published, a work on the improvement of public health of Rome and Latium, dedicated to Cardinal Barberini and the current Pope, written in 1631 by the polymath Doni (1594-1647), who was well acquainted with scientists, such as Mersenne, and was part of Cardinal Barberini's entourage, and a member of the Accademia della Crusca. Apart from his musicological writings, and his fame for having changed the name of the note Ut [C] to Do, most of his works were published posthumously by his followers and friends. In this book, part of the early modern project of restituting the glorious days of ancient Rome, Doni, referring to modern thinkers, such as Ficino, Scaliger and Cardano, examines why the area of Rome is unhealthy to live in, as opposed to the more salubrious living conditons of ancient Rome. He deals with the contribution of good architecture to impoving public health, air quality and circulation, malaria and swamplands, mineral waters, recent outbreaks of the Plague in Italy, all within the context of the urbanistic improvements undertaken by Pope Urban VIII, Maffeo Barberini (one of the two Barberini dedicatees of this work), who up to 1633 was a patron and supporter of Galileo. His nephew Francesco Barberini, the Cardinal Barberini is the other dedicatee. The family of the bookplate, the Sacchettis, are one of the oldest noble families of Rome, with close links to the Barberini. Cardinal Giulio Cesare Sacchetti (1586-1663) held among many posts that of a member of a special council set up to fight the Plague in the Papal States. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Saalmink, p. 1667; Sabin 72205. Very rare first and only Dutch edition of William Davis Robinson's Memoirs of the Mexican revolution (1820), describing the struggle for an independent Mexico, together with an account of Xavier Mina's expedition, and a historical introduction by the translator. General Xavier Mina (1789-1817) played an important role in the Mexican War of Independence. Born in Spain and an ardent supporter of liberal ideas, he was forced to leave the country and subsequently travelled to France and England. Destined to help the Mexicans cast off the yoke of Spanish rule, he embarked for the United States in 1815 where he readied several ships and headed for Mexico, arriving at Soto la Marina in 1817. Mina fought with great valour and made some successful attacks, but eventually he was defeated, taken prisoner and subsequently executed. After 11 years of war, Mexico gained its independence in 1821. Owner's entry on front pastedown. Good copy, with some light waters tains. Spine worn.

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.

Born in Spain and an ardent supporter of liberal ideas, he was forced to leave the country and subsequently travelled to France and England. Destined to help the Mexicans cast off the yoke of Spanish rule, he embarked for the United States in 1815 where he readied several ships and headed for Mexico, arriving at Soto la Marina in 1817.

      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'. The buyer is the French philosopher Pierre Laffite, 1823-1903. His pupil Émile Littré tells that he gave 'des cours hebdomadaires d'histoire, de morale, de mathématique' in his own appartment. He was a brilliant teacher, who entertained his students even in café Voltaire. He has a statue somewhere in France, and rests at Père-Lachaise. § The other bookplate belongs to the Dutch physican and famous bookcollector Bob Luza, who died in 1980, and whose library was auctioned in 1981 by Van Gendt) (Collation: pi2, 3*4, chi1, A-Z4, a-z4, 2a4 (leaf 2a4 blank and not numbered), 2b-2g4, (2h1) (2h1 not numbered)) (Photographs on request)

Outlawed in 1662 by refusing to accept the authority of the Church of Scotland, they persisted as a clandestine sect. Oppressive measures led to an outbreak of armed rebellion in 1666 near Edinburgh. There, a small force of poorly armed Covenanters was defeated at the Battle of Rullion Green in the Pentland Hills by a large force of Highland Soldiers. Also known as the Pentland Rising, it was a vicious battle notable for the atrocities committed by the Highland soldiers. No print copies located on OCLC. ESTC locates 2 copies, both in Scotland.

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.

        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."

Seicentina parigina delle opere complete di San Bernardo di Chiaravalle, nella recensione testuale emendata e annotata da Jacob Merler e da Jean Mabillon (si tratta della prima edizione con le note del Mabillon). Fra gli esiti più cospicui del pensiero medievale, la teologia monastica di san Bernardo, in aperta polemica con Abelardo e con la scolastica, rigetta decisamente il metodo della quaestio e presenta una preoccupazione marcatamente soteriologica, illustrando la storia della salvezza umana come manifestazione dell'amore di Dio. Il curatore Mabillon (Saint-Pierremont, Reims, 1632-abbazia di Saint-Germain-des-Prés, Parigi, 1707) fu celebre teologo e monaco benedettino. Wetzer / Welte, Kirchenlexikon, II, 426.
