London: T. R. for J. Martyn, and J. Allestry, 1667. Blind-tooled calf ca. 1667, light wear to hinges and edges, head of spine worn.

First Edition, second state of p. 85 without the repeated “of” on lines 6–7. A fine and completely unrestored copy of the first history of the Royal Society, published only five years after the Society received its Royal Charter. Sprat, a clergyman, was one of the original founders of the Royal Society; “[his] exposition of the conception and beginning of the Royal Society remains the only one which tells us, in any detail, not only what the founders were doing, but even more important, what they thought they were doing” (Purver, The Royal Society: Concept and Creation, p. 9). Sprat divided his work into 3 parts, the first of which discussed the state of natural philosophy of the “ancients” and compared that with the “moderns.” The second part gave examples of the kind of scientific w … [Click Below for Full Description]

BORELLI, Giovanni Alfonso.
"A fine copy of one of the most important early treatises on fluid mechanics. In this work Borelli "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" (DSB). "This work is important as the first treatise on capillarity, and for containing important investigations on the action of capillary tubes, in which the author, <i>inter alia</i>, formulates 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" (Zeitlinger in Sotheran, <i>First supplement</i>, 3060). "[<i>De motionibus naturalibus</i>] was well known among Borelli's contemporaries and is quoted by Varignon in his <i>Projet d'une nouvelle mechanique</i>. It is reviewed in the first volume of <i>Philosophical Transactions Abridged</i>, where it is praised for its thoroughness, for the discussion of Torricelli's experiments and for Borelli's stand against Descartes on the nature of fluidity" (Roberts & Trent). Borelli regarded this work, together with his <i>De vi percussionis</i> (1667), as necessary preparation for his masterpiece, <i>De motum animalium</i> (1680-81), on which he had worked since the early 1660s. The work appeared in three subsequent editions, testifying to its influence.<br/><br/> <i>Provenance</i>: The Earls of Macclesfield (bookplate … [Click Below for Full Description]

[S.n.], [S.l.], 1667. First edition. In contemporary vellum. Short title and date in ink on front panel. (8º); (2), 90, (2) p. The book concerned with the War of Devolution (1667-1668) the conflict between France and Spain over the possession of the Spanish Netherlands. After the Thirty Years' War (1618-1648) and the Franco-Spanish War (1635-1659), the Spanish monarchy was in a spiral of instability, weakness, and diminishing resources, while France under Louis XIV became the dominant military and political force in Europe. Philip IV of Spain died in 1665, and France claimed that Louis XIV, in the name of his wife, Marie Therese, the daughter of King Philip IV, would inherit Spanish territories in Flanders, but Spain denied this claim. France declared war, and the inability of Spain to defend herself and the prospect that the Spanish Netherlands would be entirely absorbed by Louis's armies, caused the governments of England, the Dutch Republic and Sweden to act, and form the Triple Alliance in January 1668 to force France back to her earlier frontiers. Shortly after this France agreed to the peace settlement of Aix-la-Chapelle (Treaty of Aachen) on May 2, 1668, which stated that France gained territory in Flanders, while most of the Spanish Netherlands, as well as French-Comté, were returned to Spain. Scarce, we could trace only five copies worldwide. Collection signatures on inner front panel. Collection stamp of the Polish aristocrat and partiot Roman Sanguszko (1800-1881) on title page. Overall in very good condition. In contemporary vellum. Short title and date in ink o … [Click Below for Full Description]
