His poems are in Homeric hexameters and show his interest in ethics and systematization. His work was known throughout antiquity to rhapsodes, scholars and schoolboys. The Byzantines compiled scholia from ancient commentaries for eludication. The Renaissance didnot quite appreciate him. Until 1667 ca. 18 editions of his 'opera omnia' were published, not much.

BONCOMPAGNI
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.

VERMAARSCH, Joost.
1667. Bierens de Haan 5021; Cat. Rijksmuseum III, p. 22; STCN (5 copies); cf. Berlin Kat. 2225 (1667 issue of 1664 ed.); not in BAL. Richly illustrated second edition of an architectural manual compiled by a master mason, first published in 1664 (the first edition was also reissued in 1667). Although the title-page calls it the first volume, Vermaarsch never published a second. He openly borrows from architectural classics, naming Scamozzi, Palladio and Viniola on his title-page. He discusses mathematical projection, architectural decoration, the five orders of columns of classical architecture, and more specifically the theories of Scamozzi, Palladio and Vignola, each treated in a separately paginated chapter. As a practicing master mason in Leiden the author's views are of special interest when he discusses the design of decorative brick and plaster work for bases and capitals of columns for doors, gateways, windows, etc., freezes, ceilings and other works of masonry. He notes that all these designs can be constructed with only the very simplest measuring tools. The plates clearly illustrate his points and provide numerous models for brick and plaster decorations. Very good copy with generous margins, with printed memorial label on the pastedown, stating that the book was presented to the mathematical society "Mathesis Scientiarum Genetrix" after Isaac La Lau's 1849 death by his son J.G. La Lau. Both were leading members of the society. [Attributes: First Edition]

FABRI, Honoré.
Lyon: Horace Boissat & Georges Remeus, 1667. First edition of Fabri's great work on optics which was the inspiration for Newton's work on light and colours as it was through this work that Newton learned of Grimaldi's discovery of the diffraction of light. 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. Fabri (1606-88), "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" (Albert et al, Source Book in Ophthalmology, p. 100).

CAVENDISH, MARGARET, DUCHESS OF NEWCASTLE.
First edition. London: Printed by A. Maxwell, 1667. Folio, contemporary blind-ruled sheep, rebacked with later endpapers, gilt rules and lettering. The famous biography of William Cavendish (1616-1684), the Earl of Newcastle, by his famous literary wife, Margaret Lucas Cavendish (1623-1673), the first English woman to publish extensively. Cavendish's biography was widely read and admired when first published, and its details and descriptions of the English Civil War and the Cavendishs' life in exile in Europe have held up to historical scrutiny. Deletions in ink on two pages, but text legible; a neat manuscript correction to the name "Banaum" on page 60, which is also present in other copies and has been attributed to the author herself. Cavendish's biography is occasionally accompanied by a portrait, but the portrait was engraved after this book was published and is not called for. Binding a little rubbed; a few minor stains and tiny flaws; a very good, large copy.

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).

In collaboration with the mathematician Vicenzio Viviani, Steno (or Stensen) developed a geometrical description of muscular contraction, attempting to demonstrate theoretically that muscles did not increase in volume during contraction. The appendix contains his anatomical descriptions of the head of two sharks, and a study of their teeth (subjects of two of the fine plates), leading him to develop "his theories of how geological structures and fossils might be formed" (Garrison-Morton).

STENSEN, Niels (Nicolaus Steno).
Florence: [Joseph Cocchini], 1667. First edition of "the first outline of a scientific theory of the development of the earth" (Norman). This is one of the most remarkable of the scientific classics because it made seminal contributions to three quite distinct fields: myology, embryology and geology. In addition to being "The earliest geological treatise" (Garboe, quoted in Garrison-Morton), this work laid the foundation of muscle mechanics, and contains the first recognition of the egg-producing function of the female ovary. Soon after arriving in Florence early in 1666, Steno began to receive instruction in geometry from Galileo's last disciple, Vincenzo Viviani. The first part of Elementorum, written in collaboration with Viviani, gave a mathematical account of the operation of the muscles, presented as a series of hypotheses, lemmas, propositions and corollaries. For, as Steno writes in his dedication to Grand Duke Ferdinand, 'why should we not give to the muscles what astronomers give to the sky, geographers to the earth, and, to take an example from the microcosm, what writers on optics concede to the eyes?' Provoked by the controversy resulting from the publication of his De Musculis et Glandulis in 1664, this part "dealt chiefly with the questions: Does the muscle increase in size during contraction? Are hardness and swelling of the muscle signs of an increase in volume? These were acute questions at the time, when even Borelli, one of the leading members of the Accademia del Cimento, still believed that swelling was caused by the influx of nerve fluid.

Contemporary full leather (some wear and pumping), red edges, brown label to spine (partly gone). Title page with stamp, some browning and foxing to text, some dampstaining to lower margins of first 20 pages. ----Wellcome IV, 218 ; Norman 1579 ; Garrison-Morton 467.2 ; NLM/Krivatsy 8283 - FIRST EDITION OF THIS FOUNDING WORK ON DEVELOPMENTAL CHEMICAL EMBRYOLOGY. Having obtained his BA from Trinity College Cambridge, and been admitted a fellow of Queens, Needham went to Oxford in 1662, where he attended anatomy lectures and became closely involved with the work of Thomas Willis, Robert Boyle, Thomas Millington and Richard Lower. He subsequently returned to Queens, taking the degree of doctor of physic in 1664. His Disquisitio, the 'first book to report chemical experiments on the developing mammalian embryo, and the first to give practical instructions on dissection of embryos' (Garrison-Morton), was dedicated to Boyle and owed much to his period at Oxford. "Needham's treatise contained the first practical instructions for embryo dissection, and was the first to report chemical experiments on the developing mammalian embryo. Needham was particularly interested in fetal nutrition, opposing the notion that the fetus feeds on amniotic fluid by mouth and defending the Harveian view that nourishment passes to the fetus via the umbilical vessels.

PEETERS, Jacob and Johannes.
- Atabey 933 (Dutch edition, 63 plates); Landwehr, De Hooghe Book Illustrator 82 (French ed., number of plates not specified); Weber 816 (Dutch edition, 125 plates); cf. Atabey 934; Blackmer 1276-1277; Nagler XI, pp. 165-166. Interesting collection of engraved prints centred around the Great Turkish War (1667-1683), a series of conflicts between the Ottoman Empire and Europe, with the letterpress text in French, but many of the captions to the prints in Dutch. The collection can be divided into 3 general parts: the first with equestrian portraits of the relevant monarchs and other leading figures on both sides of the war, the second with engraved scenes of the 1683 Battle of Vienna after Romeyn de Hooghe, and the third with over a hundred views of the cities involved. This last part contains 6 separate series, with views of Austria and Upper Hungary, Lower Hungary, Crete and the Maltese Archipelago, the Dardanelles and the Aegean archipelago, the Strait of Gibraltar and North Africa, and the Holy Land and Arabian Peninsula. Every copy varies in its make-up and the number of plates in the series of city views.The collection was published by Jacob (Jacques) Peeters (1637-1695), and most of the engravings are made after drawings by his brother Jan (Johannes) Peeters (1625-1677), best known for his drawings of city views engraved by Merian. Johannes Peeters was a pupil of their eldest brother Bonaventura Peeters, a well-known painter and draughtsman, and specialized in maritime scenes as can be seen in the present views, often depicting harbours with several ships.

MILTON, JOHN
London: [Samuel Simmons for] Peter Parker, Robert Boulter & Mathias Walker, 1667. First edition. This is a very rare example of Paradise Lost with the contemporary binding untouched and with a 1667 title page. This volume has been signed by women who owned it in the 17th and 18th centuries. Samuel Johnson wrote of Paradise Lost, “The characteristic quality of his poem is sublimity. He sometimes descends to the elegant; but his element is the great. He can occasionally invest himself with grace; but his natural port is gigantic loftiness. He can please when pleasure is required; but it is his particular power to astonish.” Thomas B. Macaulay hailed Milton as “the poet, statesman, the philosopher, the glory of English literature, the champion and martyr of English liberty.” Milton, who went blind in middle age in 1652, did not write Paradise Lost by hand. Instead, he dictated it to family and friends who served as his amanuenses. Each morning before rising from bed, Milton was read to from the Hebrew Bible, and later in the day he would dictate Paradise Lost, sometimes declaring impatiently “I want to be milked.” This copy has the second of the two 1667 title pages, of a total of six dated 1667 through 1669. The two 1667 title pages differ in the size of type for Milton’s name and in the rules and border. The likely explanation is that “the border rules were damaged and reset while the first title page was being printed. For the second title page, Milton’s name was printed in a slightly smaller type size because there was slightly less space available for it” (Dobranski, “Sim … [Click Below for Full Description]

Lancaster [Worcester County, Mass], 1667. [1] p., pen and ink on paper. 1 vols. 15 x 7 cm. About fine. [1] p., pen and ink on paper. 1 vols. 15 x 7 cm. An Early Record from a Town with a Tragic History. An intriguing early colonial record reading: "This day the Freemen of this towne met together (being warned thereunto by the Constable) & unanimously made choice of William Kerley Senr. to serve on the Grandjury at the next County Court to be held at Cambridge as also John Whitcomb was the same time chosen (with joynt Consent) to serve on the Jury of Tryalls at the same Court as notified. Lawrence Waters Constable." Originally known as Nashaway Plantation, Lancaster is the oldest town in Worcester County, and was settled in 1645 by Richard Linton, his son-in-law, Lawrence Waters, and John Ball. The town was attacked twice by Native American forces during King Philip's war, in 1675 and 1676. The latter raid was so devastating, that it resulted in the temporary abandonment of the settlement. It was during this attack, that Mary Rowlandson was taken prisoner, a notable event made famous by Rowlandson's narrative about her capture and time spent as a prisoner of the Narragansett tribe. Lawrence Waters was born about 1602 in England. He married Ann Linton in probably 1635. Originally a settler of Watertown, he became one of the first three proprietors of Lancaster, Massachusetts, in 1645. His house is believed to be the first dwelling built in Lancaster, and is son, Joseph's birth was the first recorded there. Waters was a carpenter and freeman.

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.
