(54), 1389, (23) pp. With separate engr. title-page, full-page engr. coat of arms on the reverse of the letterpress title (printed in red and black), and 61 engravings on 60 plates (6 folding). Contemporary full calf with giltstamped title to elaborately gilt spine. All edges sprinkled in red. Second edition, vastly expanded from the first (published in 1662): an extensive treatise on the wonders of animal and physical nature, in which Schott relates exact scientific observations to fabulous phenomena such as demons, witches, and monsters, seeking to bring them into agreement with each other. Includes discussions of demonology, household spirits, St. Elmo's fire, comets and their portents, etc. "Tout serait à citer de cet énorme ouvrage véritable encyclopédie du merveilleux et de l'occulte" (Caillet"). Schott, from Königshofen near Würzburg , entered the Society of Jesus in 1627 and studied at Würzburg under Athanasius Kircher. He subsequently taught in Sicily for many years, but "he was anxious to satisfy a strong thirst for knowledge and to resume his connection with Kircher, whom he always revered as his master. Schott was able to satisfy his desire in 1652, when he was sent to Rome, where for three years he collaborated with Kircher on his researches. Schott decided that since Kircher did not have time to publish all that he knew and all the information communicated to him by Jesuits abroad, he himself would do it" (DSB). - Variously browned due to paper; a … [Click Below for Full Description]

This is an important master index to precedents in Coke, Crompton, Dalton, Fitzherbert, Plowden, Pulton and many other principal works. It is also a landmark in the development of the common law.

Townesend, a clerk of the Court of Common Pleas, compiled it in the country after he fled London during the Great Plague. As he states in his preface, the book was both a pastime and a way to take his mind away from thoughts of the plague's devastation [iii].

Un volume in-16 (150x91 mm), (16)-79-(1 bl.) pages Dos refait (rebacked), Déchirure sans manque à la page de titre, mouillure. Édition originale de la plus grande rareté de l'un des monument du corpus alchimique. L'Introitus, ou l'entrée ouverte au palais fermé du Roi est l'un des plus important traité d'alchimie. Nous savons peu de chose sur Eyrénée Philalèthe (un pseudonyme qui signifie amateur de la vérité). Certains ont cru qu'il s'agissait de Thomas Vaughan. En fait ce dernier écrivit bien des traités d'alchimie, mais sous le pseudonyme de Eugénius Philalèthe et non Eyrénée. On cite aussi George Starkey, un apothicaire connu pour la conception du savon qui porte son nom. Ce dernier fit le récit de sa rencontre avec Philalèthe et des extraordinaires transmutations que ce dernier fit sous ses yeux dans un ouvrage "The oil of Sulphur. Londres 1665". Quoiqu'il en soit l'Introitus est un monument de l'alchimie opérative. Isaac Newton eu un exemplaire de l'édition anglaise, parue deux ans après, comme livre de chevet. Il l'avait copieusement annoté à quasiment chaque page (exemplaire vendu fort cher aux enchères en 1936). Édition originale fort rare, qui manque à Duveen, Neville, Dorbon, Guaita, Verginelli, Ouvaroff, etc .

Much more than simply a history of the Royal Society, Sprat's History places the founding of the society in its historical setting, includes edited versions of fourteen original papers by Hooke, Petty, and others, and embodies the experimental principles of Francis Bacon on which the society was based. "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... The second part of the History provides an explanation of the origins of the Royal Society, its experimental method, and its purposes... 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" (ODNB).

A member of the Ferrara branch of the influential Bentivoglio family of Bologna, he was the younger son of marchese Cornelio Bentivoglio and Isabella Bendidio. After studying at the universities of Ferrara and Padua, where in 1598 he received a doctorate utroque jure-- in both civil and canon law-- he returned to Ferrara, to the humanistic studies that honed his elegant writing style. There Pope Clement VIII, on a visit to the city that had recently fallen under direct papal control, made him his private chamberlain, and he returned with Clement to Rome.

STENSEN, Niels (Nicolaus Steno).
Florence: [Joseph Cocchini], 1667. First edition. 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 flui … [Click Below for Full Description]

BORELLI, Giovanni Alfonso.
Giacopo Monti, Bologna, 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).

Die Fülle des von Kircher verarbeiteten Materials wie auch die superben Abbildungen machten das Werk zu einem der meistgelesenen Chinabücher der frühen Neuzeit. - "1625 wurde in Sian eine alte chinesische Inschrift wieder aufgefunden. Sie stammte aus dem Jahr 781 und gab Zeugnis, dass schon damals das Christentum durch die Nestorianer in China Einzug gehalten hatte. Diese Entdeckung gab den Anstoß für Kircher, sein China-Buch zu publizieren. Die Texte beruhen großenteils auf Arbeiten von Ordensbrüdern. Den zentralen Platz nimmt die Edition der Sian-Inschrift ein. Damit ist "China monumentis illustrata" eine Inkunabel der Sinologie.

It was edited by the Dutch Calvinist professor Johannes Leusden in collaboration with Jewish scholars printed by the Sephardi exile Joseph Athias. This edition became the standard text for many subsequent editions of the 18th and 19th century. "Its success in part due to the remarkable confluence of Christian and Jewish anxieties about the accuracy of the sacred text in the decade between the excommunication of Spinoza and the apostasy of the Messiah Sabbatai Zevi." (Theodor Dunkelgrün, "Never Printed Like This Before', Amsterdam, 2014). The present copy contains the Judicum of Christianus Schotanus (leaf C8 verso), which was left out in some copies.

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 t … [Click Below for Full Description]

"Henri Lord. rapporte ce qu'il a pu apprendre des prêtres Parsis. Après avoir parlé de la création, de Zertoost, législateur des Persans, né en Chine, de la révelation que ce Zertoost obtint de la divinité, il énumère certains préceptes de la loi mazdéenne et certaines cérémonies ; il relate l'adoration du feu et termine par un recueil de passages extraits des anciens auteurs."

Ils le représentent sous une figure horrible. Le prêtre de cet objet de culte marque au front, d'une signe jaune, ceux qui ont adoré le diable. " (Dict. infernal I, p. 317, éd. 1825).

"La publication du Nouveau Testament de Mons (Bible de Port Royal) fût un évènement marquant dans l'histoire du jansenisme. Il avait à peine vu le jour, qu'il s'éleva contre lui une nuée de pamphlets, sermons, brochures de tout genre." "Cette traduction obtient un succés considérable, les jansénistes la trouve admirable, les jésuites la déclarent diabolique." "S'il est douteux que Pascal fût au nombre des savants qui entreprirent cette oeuvre, il est certain qu'Antoine Le Maistre en posa les fondements, et que son frère, le Maistre de Saci, secondé par Arnaud, en fût le principal auteur. C'est en se rendant à une réunion, que MM. De Saci fût arrété et conduit à la Bastille, d'oû il ne sortit que deux ans aprés, il avait en poche la préface du Nouveau Testament qu'il devait soumettre à Nicole et à Arnauld."
