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).

SEMEDO, Alvarez
Lyon: Hierosme Prost, 1667. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Alvaro Semedo was a 17th-century Portuguese Jesuit missionary known for his mission to China. While there, he was persecuted for his attempts at conversion, imprisoned in an anti-Christian prison, and eventually shipped out of mainland China. During his temporary hiatus from China, he wrote a lengthy and thorough report of his time in China, 'The Universal History of China'. In it, Semedo describes Chinese society, accounts of foreign missionaries, and detailed description of the Manchu Invasion of Korea. Other topics include Chinese religious customs and Tartar wars with China, curiously focusing on the importance of Chinese cavalry in the successes of battle (Minuti, p.74). Originally published in 1638, this work was published in numerous European languages, including this first French edition in 1667 by Prost. [Attributes: First Edition]

NAPIER, John.
Edinburgh; Padua: Andrew Hart; Giacomo Cadorino, 1619; [1667]. First edition. First edition, extremely rare, of this complement to Napier's epoch-making Mirifici logorithmorum canonis descriptio (1614) - while the Descriptio gave the first ever table of logarithms, it was in the Constructio that Napier explained the method of their construction. It is here bound with the first edition of James Gregory's first mathematical work, highly important in the pre-history of calculus, and if anything even rarer than the Napier. "Probably no work has ever influenced science as a whole, and mathematics in particular, so profoundly as this modest little book [the Descriptio]. It opened the way for the abolition, once and for all, of the infinitely laborious, nay, nightmarish, processes of long division and multiplication, of finding the power and the root of numbers" (Waters, The Art of Navigation in England in Elizabethan and Early Stuart Times (1958), p. 402). "The 'Mirifici logorithmorum canonis constructio' is the most important of all of Napier's works, presenting as it does in a most clear and simple way the original conception of logarithms. It is, however, so rare as to be very little known, many writers on the subject never having seen a copy" (Macdonald, p. xvii). "Historically, it is important to note that in the Constructio the decimal notation is used with ease and power practically for the first time" (Henderson, p. 253). The second work in this volume is by the brilliant Scottish mathematician James Gregory. "Of British mathematicians of the seventeenth century, Gregory … [Click Below for Full Description]

GUTBIER, Aegidius
1667 1st ed SYRIAC Aramaic Bible New Testament Lexicon Latin Aegidius Gutbier Aegidius Gutbier was a 17th-century Germany historian known for his studies in orientalism. While he did not produce an extensive collection of written works, he did write two highly influential works including a Syriac New Testament and Syriac Bible lexicon. In order to fund and print these works, Gutbier established his own printing house in Hamburg, Germany. These two works were often published together, including this fine first edition example. Darlow and Moule provide an extensive description of Gutbier and his New Testament translation. “The reference is to two pieces, printed uniformly with this edition of the N.T. and sometimes appended to it – a lexicon (1667). Many variations occur in copies of this N.T. The engraved title belongs properly to those only which included the supplementary pieces, viz. the lexicon. According to the ADB, “Gutbier was one of the greatest orientalists of his age.” Item number: #4984 Price: $950 GUTBIER, Aegidius Novum Domini Nostri Jesu Christi Testamentum Syriace, Cum punctis Vocalibus & Versione Latina Matthæi, ita adornata, ut, unico hoc Evangelista intellecto, reliqvi totius Operis libri, sine interprete, facile intelligi possint: In gratiam Stusiosæ Juventutis . emendate editum, Accurante Ægidio Gutbirio, SS.

Afm.: 16 x 25 cm.David Thomas Valentine (1801-1869) was ruim dertig jaar ambtenaar bij de gemeente New York en wordt beschouwd als de belangrijkste historicus van de stad in die tijd. Tussen 1841 en 1870 publiceerde Valentine jaarlijks een statistisch en historisch naslagwerk dat hij het ?Manual of the Corporation of The City of New York ? noemde. Valentine?s Manuals bevatten honderden kaarten, lithografie?n en houtgravures van New York City, veelal van plekken die al waren gesloopt, zoals te zien op deze prent, maar bevatten ook lijsten met kantoren en kantooreigenaren, verkiezingsresultaten en financi?le overzichten.1667 betekende het einde van de Tweede Engels-Nederlandse oorlog, die werd afgesloten met het Vrede van Breda. In dat verdrag was de Republiek der Verenigde Nederlanden het eens met Groot-Brittanni? over de status-quo van het Engelse bezit van Manhattan, waarbij de Nederlanders (voorlopig) geen aanspraak meer maakten op het eiland.Prijs: Euro 950,- (incl. lijst).

Desmarets de Saint-Sorlin fit une réponse aux premières lettres des Imaginaires et Nicole s'employa en réponse dans Les visionnaires (seconde partie du recueil) à démolir scrupuleusement les auteurs, poètes et dramaturges, ce qui lui valut une réplique outrée de Racine, son ancien élève en grec.

(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]

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].

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).

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).

Edition Originale de la traduction française, par l'auteur lui-même, de son "Orpheus Eucharisticus" paru en 1657. Ce livre est illustré de 101 charmants emblèmes en taille douce, dessinés et gravés par le peintre et graveur d'origine hollandaise Albert Flamen (1620-1669), qui fut principalement actif à Paris. "Son véritable talent, celui à qui il doit le plus de gloire et de renommée, est la gravure. Il mêlait la pointe sèche et le burin à son travail d'eau forte qu'il exécutait avec une pointe fine, nette et légère, et qui offre un ensemble très approchant de la manière de Winceslas Hollar" (Robert-Dumesnil). Flamen is "in class with Callot's best work, although this artist is not nearly as renowned" (Hofer). Tache d'encre dans la marge d'un feuillet. Bon exemplaire. Praz, 304. Landwehr 1978, 71. Emblemata (Raybould collection, Grolier Club, 2009), n°19. cf. Hofer, "Baroque Book Illustration" 1951, p.32. Cf. Robert-Dumesnil, V, p.137. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

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.

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]
