        Les principes de la philosophie escrits en Latin par René Descartes et traduits en François par un de ses amis. Reveus, & corrigez en cette dernière édition.

      Paris, Théodore Girard, 1668, in 4°, de 28ff.n.ch., 477pp., 1f., ill. de 91 figures sur bois in t. certaines répétées, dont 21 à pl. page, et une grande planche gravée se dépl., pl. veau brun époque, dos orné, appartenance découpée au f. de titre avec restauration ancienne, sinon bel exemplaire. Réédition de l'édition augmentée de 1659. Elle fut partagée entre Michel Bobin, Nicolas Le Gras et Théodore Girard. Les Principia Philosophiae parurent d'abord en latin en 1644, c'est une des oeuvres majeures de Descartes, et le succès en fut considérable. On se souvient que cette oeuvre importante dans l'histoire de la pensée contient en particulier la célèbre théorie des tourbillons. La version française fut en partie faite par son ami Claude Picot, mais elle comporte aussi des additions qui sont de Descartes lui-même. ¶ Guibert Descartes 129/130 - "The principia philosophia contains Descartes'famous vortex theory by which he tried to reconcile Copernican astronomy with biblical teaching. It also contains the first scientific theory of magnetism". "The most comprehensive of all Descartes'works... its three treatises embrace the whole of his philosophy... . Descartes'design in this treatise was the elaboration of a general theory which would account for the creation and the structur of the world. At the outset he scorfully rejected the whole apparatus of qualitates occultae, employed so freely by the scholastics, and in its place he tried to substitute a rational explanation of the phenomena of nature grounded upon human intelligence and erected upon the mathematical model. In this way he indicated the only solid path ever pursued by physical science, namely, its reduction to the laws of mathematics... ". (Scott p. 158) - DSB IV.51

A' Paris, chez Charles Angot, au Lion d'Or, 1668

      in-4, 2 parti in un volume, pp.303, (23) per la prima parte (''Discours de la Méthode. La Dioptrique. Les Meteores''); pp. 127, (1), per la seconda parte (''Traité de la Mechanique. Abbregé de la Musique''). Impresa dello stampatore Angot sul titolo, iniziali e finalini di pagina istoriati. Nel testo numerose figure scientifiche di grande interesse, in rame. Ottima legatura coeva in piena pelle marmorizzata, doppio filetto oro sui piatti, dorso a nervi con titolo e ricchi fregi oro, tagli rossi. Esemplare assai bello di questa ottima rara edizione, la prima che riunisca tutti i trattati del grande filosofo e scienziato francese (1596-1650), il quale dedicò la vita al progresso di queste scienze e ne fu il ''moderno'' innovatore: il suo ''Discours de la Methode'' (scritto in Olanda ove il libero pensiero era maggiormente autorizzato, ivi pubblicato per la prima volta nel 1637, prezioso e rarissimo), fu la base dei suoi studi in vari campi. Il ragionamento e la verità del pensiero umano (''cogito, ergo sum'') portarono, in seguito, alle importanti scoperte fatte da Locke, Leibnitz e Newton. Descartes vi menziona e discute la scoperta di Harvey sulla circolazione del sangue. Esemplare assai puro e fresco.

      Messina [after 29 February, 1668] - 4to (235 x 170 mm), pp 37 [3, blank], with numerous woodcut illustrations in text; a very good uncut, unpressed copy in plain wrappers.First edition of this rare work, a response by Borelli to criticisms published by the mathematician Stefano degli Angeli regarding Borelli's De vi percussionis (1667), and a work due to which Borelli 'can be credited to be the first person to have examined in quantitative detail the deflection that falling bodies undergo due to the earth's diurnal rotation' (Theo Gerkema, On Borelli's analysis concerning the deflection of falling bodies, 2009). The issue at the centre of Angeli's criticisms and Borelli's response concerns the path of a falling body in relation to the movement of the earth. The primary object of Angeli's attack was the Jesuit astronomer Riccioli who, in his Astronomia Reformata of 1665, 'provided a list of seventy-seven arguments against Copernicanism. The Jesuits had great difficulty accepting that different motions could be combined without one of them overpowering and annulling the effects of the other. A key feature of Riccioli's position was that there were observable differences in the behaviour of bodies depending on whether the Earth was in motion or not. Since observations showed the effects he expected on a stationary Earth, he concluded that the Earth does not move. In this extreme form, his views about composition of motion were rather isolated? This issue, however, involved not only the composition of motion but also the motions being composed, and this was an area of considerable uncertainty.'Following a preliminary essay sent anonymously to Riccioli in 1666, Borelli put forward his arguments in De vi percussionis (Bologna 1667). He argued that the trajectory of a body dropped from a tower in the hypothetical situation of a rotating Earth would be an irregular curve resulting from a uniform curvilinear motion acquired from the Earth's rotation and a uniformly accelerated one ? Stefano degli Angeli entered the controversy against both Riccioli and Borelli. His attacks created considerable embarrassment because the Angeli was a closet Copernican and a student of Cavalieri's, just as Borelli had been a student of Castelli's. As Koyr

In England tax collection was always lagging behind, so Downing made such Orders as these assignable "for value received", no doubt at a substantial discount, here to Edward Backwell, one of the greatest financiers of his age, and whose accounts for many years have survived. Downing also insisted that "lenders yesterday" should be paid before "lenders tomorrow", that is "in course". Hence the "registration", so that Backwell would only receive his money after some "321220 l. 19s. 4d." had already been paid out of the Hearth Tax. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        La religion du médecin, c'est à dire : description nécessaire par Thomas Brown [sic], [...] touchant son opinion accordante avec le pur service divin d'Angleterre

      s.l, s.n, 1668. 1668, 1668, in-12, (12), 360, (2)pp, frontispice, pleine basane XVIIIe, dos à 4 nerfs, pièce de titre en maroquin havane, tranches rouges (importantes restaurations du dos), Première édition française de cet ouvrage qui parut, en 1642, en anglais sous le titre Religio Medici, et qui fut dès 1644 traduit en latin. L'édition latine fut souvent réimprimée, accompagnée d'annotations et commentaires explicatifs. Le traducteur français, Nicolas Le Febvre, suit le texte latin. La formulation générale du titre, "la religion du médecin", ne témoigne pas du contenu du livre. Il s'agit d'une oeuvre toute personnelle, où, d'une part, Browne, se défend contres les accusations pour athéisme et développe son approche singulière du fait religieux ; et où, d'autre part, il égrène ses avis sur de nombreux sujets du temps. "La religion du médecin aurait tout aussi bien s'intituler, au dire de Bayle, Le médecin de la religion. Thomas Browne affirme sa foi chrétienne, mais ne veut dépendre d'aucune église". Ainsi, en 55 chapitres courts, dans un style alliant préceptes et paradoxes, moral et ironie, Browne étudie, tout en s'y impliquant et en affirmant son opinion, les fondements de la religion et de la morale, la magie, les esprits, les démons, les apparitions, les songes, la pierre philosophale, les pauvres, le mariage, la musique, etc. L'ouvrage, dans sa version latine, fut mis à l'index des livres interdits par décret du 18 mars 1645. Browne pratiqua la médecine à Norwich . Il est considéré comme l'un des plus grands auteurs du XVIIIe siècle et comme l'un les plus singuliers. Ex-libris manuscrit ancien : "Moisson".

Edition originale de ces Mémoires rédigés en fait par Philippe Goibaud Du Bois à la demande de Saint-Yon, secrétaire du duc. Henri de Lorraine (1614-1664) cadet destiné au clergé, fut archevêque de Reims. Il ne devint 5e duc de Guise qu'en 1640 après la mort de son frère aîné le prince de Joinville. Son caractère brouillon et instable en fit la fable de son époque. Ces mémoires relatent surtout l'entreprise extravagante de la révolte de Masaniello en 1647, pour asseoir les prétentions familiales sur le royaume de Naples, qui se solda par un lamentable échec (il fut prisonnier des Espagnols de 1648 à 1652). Il tentera une seconde campagne contre Naples en 1654, mais échouera aussi. ¶ Bourgeois & André Sources 785.

      Paris: Chez Theodore Girard, dans la grand salle du palais ... Avec privilege du Roy. 1668 [lvi], 1-(479)pp. Engr. title, woodcut illus., one folding table. 4to. Contemp. full sprinkled calf, spine gilt in compartments & with raised bands; some minor expertly executed repairs to spine & extremities. A v.g. copy.Descartes' monumental philosophical treatise was first published in Latin, as Principia Philosophiae, in 1644. It expanded on ideas first considered in Discours de la méthode pour bien conduire sa raison ..., of 1637. It was in Principia Philosophiae that Descartes defined his theory of conscious reasoning, neatly encapsulated in the now iconic phrase, cogito, ergo sum - 'I think, therefore I am'. The first French edition of Principia Philosophiae appeared in 1647, translated by Descartes' friend in Paris, Abbé Claude Picot, 1614-1688. It was slightly expanded from the Latin edition, in that it included as a preface, a letter from Descartes to his translator in which he discusses the substance of his philosophy, and reaction to it by fellow scholars.

        Edinburgh, the ninth day of May, one thousand six hundred and sixty eight.

      Printed by Evan Tyler 1668 - 2 sheets, folio (each approx. 40 cm x 331 cm), printed on one side, woodcut royal arms at head of first page, main text in black letter, a little worming (without serious loss), lower edges slightly frayed, sometime folded to docket size, 1 panel on the verso of the second sheet dust-soiled, and endorsed, . The Act of Indemnity was passed in 1667 in the wake of the Pentland Rising, 15-28 November, 1666. The Rising originated in Dalry in Kirkcudbrightshire when a number of soldiers stationed to exact fines were held captive after beating an elderly man who had defaulted, and the following day more soldiers were imprisoned for taking part in a scuffle with the locals. Two days later a crowd of around 200 rebels marched to Dumfries, and then, gathering reinforcements on the way, headed towards Edinburgh. Bad weather, insufficient provisions and a poor choice of route brought about a serious depletion in their numbers, and on reaching the outskirts of the city they were easily routed during the brief Battle of Rullion Green in the Pentland Hills. The defeated rebels were treated cruelly. The Rising is the subject of an essay by Robert Louis Stevenson, his first published work. This Proclamation provides the names and places of habitation, parish by parish, of about 220 rebels who refused to accept the terms of the Act. A few occupations are given, including a book-binder from Lanark. Only the NLS copy in Wing and the ESTC. (ESTC R183355)

      [1668-]1669 London: John Macock for George Sawbridge. First edition of "the most significant English astronomical work of its time" (ODNB). Wing's earliest works were Ptolemaic, but by 1651 he had accepted the fundamentals of Keplerian astronomy as modified by Ismael Boulliau. "Like many astronomers in the second half of the seventeenth century, Wing, following Boulliau and Seth Ward, opted for an 'empty-focus' variant of Kepler's second law, holding that a planet moving in an elliptical orbit describes equal angles in equal times about the focus not occupied by the sun. In works published in 1651 and 1656 Wing, adopting Boulliau's method, had his elliptical orbits, including that of the moon, generated in purely geometrical fashion by circles and epicycles. In his posthumously published Astronomia Britannica, however, he discarded the epicycles in favour of a refined version of the theory proposed by Ward in the latter's Astronomia geometrica (1656), in which the elliptical orbits were assumed to be physically generated. Wing's celestial mechanics contained a mixture of Cartesian and Keplerian components, with a rotating sun and celestial vortex pushing the planets around in their orbits" (DSB XIV 446). Newton owned a copy of the present work, 'heavily perused and dog-eared' according to Harrison (p. 300). "When in 1669 [Newton] read carefully through Vincent Wing's Astronomia Britannica (which among other innovations paraded a neat transfer of the modified Boulliau hypothesis to the ellipse's centre as a correcting factor on the central anomaly) he added to the endpapers of his library copy of the book a new equant law, centred again on the empty second focus of orbit but now preserving the true elliptical shape of the orbit itself only approximately" (D. T. Whiteside, in Before the Principia: The maturing of Newton's thoughts on dynamical astronomy, 1664-1684 I, p. 9). Wing (1619-68) "had little formal education and began earning his living at an early age as a surveyor, almanac compiler, astrologer and prolific writer of astronomical works. His almanacs were the most popular of their time; and, in Flamsteed's judgement, Wing produced "our exactest ephemerides." He was an eager polemicist and frequently was involved in public disputes over astronomical and astrological matters" (DSB). The book is dedicated to Sir Robert Markham (1664-1690), who sat in the House of Commons from 1678 to 1685. There is some confusion in the literature about the date of the first edition of this work (and indeed of some of Wing's other works). Some bibliographers give the date of the Astronomia as 1652, but this is incorrect, perhaps arising from a confusion with his Urania practica. DSB incorrectly gives the date of this latter work as 1649 rather than 1652 (and states that it is Wing's first book, which it is not). ESTC R23367; Wing W2986. Folio (302 x 198 mm), pp. [xx], 244, [2], 192, [2], 193-366, [2], 367-369, [1], engraved frontispiece portrait of the author by Cross, woodcut diagrams, engraved illustration, each of the five books with separate title page (books I to III dated 1668, the others 1669). Contemporary sprinkled calf, neatly rebacked with red morocco lettering-piece and spine gold-tooled in period style, traces of chaining staple on upper cover, covers slightly rubbed.

         Les Mémoires de feu Monsieur le Duc de Guise

      Paris, Edme Martin, Sébastien Mabre-Cramoisy, 1668, in 4°, de 4ff. 795 pp., pl. veau moucheté époque, dos orné, plats frappés aux armes de Jacques-Maire Leboeuf, Marquis de Valdahon, colonel d'artillerie (O.H.R. pl. 371), (Ex-libris Robert d'Avril comte de Burey, et Bernard Jubin), bel exemplaire. Edition originale de ces Mémoires rédigés en fait par Philippe Goibaud Du Bois à la demande de Saint-Yon, secrétaire du duc. Henri de Lorraine (1614-1664) cadet destiné au clergé, fut archevêque de Reims. Il ne devint 5e duc de Guise qu'en 1640 après la mort de son frère aîné le prince de Joinville. Son caractère brouillon et instable en fit la fable de son époque. Ces mémoires relatent surtout l'entreprise extravagante de la révolte de Masaniello en 1647, pour asseoir les prétentions familiales sur le royaume de Naples, qui se solda par un lamentable échec (il fut prisonnier des Espagnols de 1648 à 1652). Il tentera une seconde campagne contre Naples en 1654, mais échouera aussi. ¶ Bourgeois & André Sources 785.

Because it appears in relatively few copies, the plate may have been added as an afterthought to the copies remaining after the greater part of the edition had been sold' (Norman). Redi's most influential book, which by remarkably simple experiments disproved the belief, dating back to Aristotle, that insects -- especially carrion-eating flys -- are spontaneously generated in dead creatures. "Using four flasks, he filled two each with pieces of meat, corked two and left two open. Flies gathered within the second [pair] and the contents became wormy, the first putrid, but not wormy. He stated, 'thus the flesh of dead animals cannot engender worms unless the eggs of the living be deposited within'" (Dibner). Redi "observed the egg-producing apparatus in insects and he also used the microscope to good advantage in observing the morphological elements characteristic of the eggs of each species" (DSB). Very Good.
