Plus la Dioptrique, les Meteores, la Mechanique, et la Musique, qui sont des essais de cette Methode. Avec des Remarques e des éclaircissemens necessaires. 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.

        Drop-title:] Risposta . alle considerazioni fatte sopra alcuni luoghi del suo libro della forza della percossa del R. P. F. Stefano de gl' Angeli . all'illustrissimo . Michel Angelo Ricci.

      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

      1668 - as Lords of the Treasury, with transcription, to pay "by vertue of his Maiesties Lettres Patents under the Greate Seale of England dated the xxvth day of December 1660", out of the "Duty of Firehearths unto Sir Henry Wood", (1597-1671, 1st Baronet), from 1644 "Treasurer and Receiver Generall to his Maiesties Dearest Mother the Queene", HENRIETTA MARIA (1609-1669, wife of Charles I), "Three hundred Fifty Nine Pounds upon the summe of Two thousand pounds by the yeere Graunted . in Lieu and recompence of Custodies, Wardshipps, and Mariages . within her Maiesties Joynture . Due for one whole Yeere" ended 25th March 1668, signed also by Sir Henry Wood, 12th December 1668, assigning it to Sir Thomas Bond, (circa 1620-1685, the Queen Mother's Comptroller, 1st Baronet, he developed Bond Street in London), and by Sir Thomas Bond, 13th December 1668, assigning it to Edward Backwell (circa 1619-1683, Goldsmith, Banker and Royal Financier), with further the note of Registration signed by Sir Robert Long (circa 1602-1673, Auditor of the Lower Exchequer, 1st Baronet), 2 sides large folio, with short title and registration note on conjugate leaf, 17th July a few small wormholes in blank margins, others tiny and almost invisible (a few being in the text), blank bottom right corner and ends of former folds expertly restored An early example of the fiscal arrangements introduced in 1665 by Sir George Downing (1623-1684, 1st Baronet, developer of Downing Street), based on his experience in Holland. 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".

      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.

      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)

      Paris, Langlois, Barbin, 1668. ____ Première édition. "Ouvrage très rare et l'un des plus curieux traitant de la pierre philosophale." Caillet qui n'avait jamais vu cette édition et cite des éditions du XVIIIe. Elle était déjà si rare au XVIIIe siècle, que l'ouvrage a été réédité en allemand par Henckel en 1743 et 1772, puis en français en 1777. L'auteur y emploie, probablement pour la première fois, le mot "zinc". La troisième partie est mise sous forme de dialogues entre des alchimistes et Hermès, qui explique la Table d'Emeraude. Il s'achève par trois paraboles sur le Grand Oeuvre. La page de titre porte la mention "tome premier", mais il est complet ainsi, avec trois parties : I. De la nature en général. II. Des agens metaliques. III. Le retour d'Hermès, pour le mesme sujet. Ferguson. Bib. chemica, II, 256 : "The book had become extremely rare when it was translated by Henckel... A good deal of importance seems to have been attached to this book by the metallurgists of the time."

"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).

        La religion du médecin.

      (Amsterdam, Blaeu), 1668. ____ Première édition française. Le plus singulier des écrivains du XVIIème siècle, Thomas Brown nous livre une confession conduite selon les plus fugaces associations d'idées.

Il demande la liberté de se laisser guider par sa seule raison, pour tout les sujets sur lesquels l'enseignement de l'Eglise n'apporte rien. Le livre a été mis à l'Index. Joli frontispice gravé. Papier légèrement bruni, très bel exemplaire en maroquin de l'époque. Signature sur le titre : Duclos. Printing and the Mind of Man N°131. Willems 1784. Brunet 1, 1281. Caillet 1717.*****. In-12.

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.

        The Experienc'd Angler: or, Angling Improv'd. Being a general discourse . third edition much enlarged.

      - London, for Richard Marriot 1668. Small octavo sheep (rebacked and recornered); [16],96,[6]pp, extra engraved title and 10 engravings through the text. Some worming at the end - of no great consequence. With the preliminary blank A1. One of the trio of Anglers; it was for a while (later in the century) included with Walton and Cotton but then slipped into relative obscurity. Venables' little fishing book seems to be about the only gentle, even warmhearted, product of an otherwise unhappy, troublesome and mean-spirited man. At least once here he preaches charity to the 'sick and indigent' which he does not seem to have been able to extend to his own daughter and grandson. The first edition appeared in 1662, the second edition seems to have vanished altogether and this third is quite changed from the first. At the end, in a contemporary hand, is a short recipe for bait. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Paris: Henaulet, d'Houry, Ninville, 1668. Mauriceau, François (1637-1709). Des maladies des femmes grosses et accouchées. Avec la bonne et véritable méthode de les bien aider en leurs accouchemens naturels . . . 4to. [24, including engraved frontispiece by Guillaume Vallet after Antoine Paillet and letter-press title] 536 pp., including 11 full or nearly full-page, 15 half-page and 3 quarter page engravings in text. Paris: Henault, d’Houry, Ninville, 1668. 245 x 185 mm. Red morocco gilt ca. 1668, spine in 7 compartments richly tooled, covers triple-gilt with fleurons at corners; extremities and corners expertly repaired; preserved in a cloth box. Ruled throughout. Mauriceau’s autograph cipher at the end of the printed dedication followed by three inscriptions signed by Mauriceau’s cipher at the end of the printed dedication (leaf 1 verso), dated 1675, 1681 and 1694. Correction in manuscript on p. 196. Some minor toning in extreme outer margin, but generally a broad-margined magnificent copy, in a splendid binding with an important historic association. First Edition of this groundbreaking medical work establishing obstetrics as a separate science, in a presentation binding of contemporary red morocco stamped with the name of the dedicatees—Les Maistres Chirurgiens Jurez de Paris—and with three signed inscriptions by the author at the end of the printed dedication, announcing the publication of his work’s later 17th century revised editions. The present copy’s presentation binding, in splendid red morocco, testifies directly to Mauriceau’s practical training in obstetrics and importance in the Parisian medical community: its covers declare its owner to be a member of Les Maîtres Chirurgiens Jurés (also known as the Confraternity of Saint-Come), the venerated guild of Paris surgeons established in the 13th century. Mauriceau’s dedication, similarly addressed to “Mes chers Confr?res,” has a manuscript addendum in this copy: Three inscriptions written by the author and signed with his cipher, the first noting the publication of the corrected and augmented second edition of Des maladies des femmes in 1675, the second the publication of the third French and the first Latin editions in 1681, and the third noting the publication of the revised fourth edition “bien plus parfaite que toutes les précédentes.” It seems probable that Mauriceau wanted to document, in this dedication copy of the first edition, the fact that he had continued to make improvements to his text in later editions. Mauriceau’s relationship with the Confraternity is also worth noting. The prestigious society had originally served to distinguish its members, usually academics, from “barber-surgeons” who had no university training. Yet in 1655 the two guilds had merged—in large part because the practical skills of itinerant surgeons often surpassed those of their academic competitors! In this context, Mauriceau’s hands-on apprenticeship at the Hôtel-Dieu is significant, as is the publication of his work in French instead of Latin—a fact noted by the Biblioth?que Nationale’s inclusion of the present volume in its exhibition catalogue En Français dans le texte (1990). “This book was without question the most practical, explicit and accurate of the then known treatises on midwifery” (Cutter & Viets, A Short History of Midwifery, p. 51). Mauriceau was “the first to write on tubal pregnancy, epidemic puerperal fever, and the complications that arise in labor from misplacement of the umbilical cord’’ (Le Fanu, Notable Medical Books from the Lilly Library, p. 85). For more than seventy years and through numerous translations and editions, Des maladies des femmes grosses contributed to the spread of good obstetric practice throughout Europe.

        Historia plantarum, quae in horto academico Lugduni-Batavorum crescunt cum earum charecteribus, & medicinalibus virtutibus.London [printed in the Netherlands], "sumptibus Societatis" [the Royal Society?], 1738. 2 volumes bound as 1. 12mo. 18th-century calf, gold-tooled spine with title and the royal cypher monogram of Louis XV.

      - BMC NH, p. 185; ESTC T130372; Henrey 463; for Boerhaave: DSB II, pp. 224-228. Third enlarged and corrected edition of Boerhaave's description of the plants in Leiden University's botanical garden. It gives an account of the various species, including the origins of the plants, their names, characteristics and possible medicinal properties. It includes trees, herbs, flowers, mushrooms and marine plants. As head of the botanical garden, Boerhaave (1668-1738) published his first catalogue of plants, Index plantarum, in 1710, and added more than two thousand species by the second edition in 1720, reflecting Boerhaave's extensive additions to the garden. Although the present work carries Boerhaave's name, it is believed to have been prepared by one of his students with the aid of lecture notes. The royal cypher monogram on the binding shows the crowned L and mirrored L of Louis XV (1710-1774). With English owner's inscriptions on the title-page. Very slightly browned and with a small stain at the foot of pages 1-22, not approaching the text. Otherwise a very good copy. Binding somewhat worn and restored at the extremities.

        Discours de la methode pour bien Conduire sa Raison et Chercher la verité dans les Sciences. Plus la Dioptrique et les meteores, qui sont des essais de cette Methode. Reueuë, & corrigée en cette derniere Edition.

      Paris, Theodore Girard, 1668. 4to. Contemp. full calf. Raised bands, richly gilt spine. Title-label with gilt lettering. Wear to spine ends, a small crack to leather at upper compartment. Corners bumped. (4),413,(31) pp. 7 full-page woodcut illustrations and 115 woodcut illustrations in the text. Lower right corner of title-page neathly repaired, no loss. Apart from a few minor brownspots internally fine and clean. Apparently a variant edition of the fourth edition of "Discours", printed by Theodore Girard, as one of three (?) editions printed in 1668 (the more common being that printed by Angot). Here Descartes developes his new philosophical method into a new scientific methodology, which he here applies to the fields of optics and meteorology.The privilege to printing was given to the printer Nicolas le Gras, who shared it with his brother in law, Girard (the printer of the offered item). The leading publishers of Descartes were Elzevier, Blaeu and Jeansson in Amsterdam and Girard, Bobin, Le Gras, and Angot in Paris. The four Frenchmen appear to have coordinated the publication of particular editions among themselves. They apparently produced variant copies which were similar but which were intentionally distinctive only in the name of the bookseller in the imprint. Le Gras and Girard were brothers-in-law.

        LA COMICA DEL CIELO, O VERO LA BALTASARA. Manoscritto seicentesco. La presente grand'opera fu recitata sette volte nei giorni de Carnevale nel Palazzo degli Ecc.mi SS.ri Rospigliosi composta dalla felice memoria di Papa Clemente nono, posta in musica dal Sig, Antonio Maria Abbatini.

      1668. Eccezionale manoscritto seicentesco in formato cm.19x13,5, composto da 166 pagine, le ultime tre delle quali bianche. Sobria legatura coeva in piena pergamena semirigida, con laccetti di chiusura in seta verde. Ritaglio di cornicetta calcografica applicato al frontespizio, sormontato da stemma cardinalizio, all'interno del quale è stato incollato l'emblema della famiglia Spada. Ottima grafia in bella copia, con compilazione assai elegante su 18 righe per pagina. Manoscritto seicentesco di assoluta rarità, freschissimo ed in ottime condizioni di conservazione. Si tratta della trasposizione per musica di una commedia del XVII secolo del drammaturgo spagnolo Luis Vélez de Guevara (Écija, 1579-1644), il cui testo fu riadattato da Giulio Rospigliosi (Pistoia, 1600-1669) futuro Papa Clemente IX, durante la nunziatura in Spagna. L'apparato musicale si deve al Maestro di Cappella Antonio Maria Abbatini (Città di Castello, 1597-1679). L'opera fu eseguita solo sette volte durante il Carnevale del 1668 a Palazzo Rospigliosi e a Palazzo Ludovisi, avvalendosi delle scenografie di Gian Lorenzo Bernini e della direzione orchestrale di Lodovico Lenzi, riscuotendo notevole successo. Di particolare rilievo il fatto che si tratta dell'unico dei 12 libretti per melodramma composti dal Rospigliosi ad essere stato eseguito durante il suo brevissimo pontificato (1667-1669), sembra con la sua stessa presenza in incognito, e che il testo non è mai stato dato alle stampe, ed è conosciuto solo dalla partitura, di cui peraltro esiste un solo esemplare presso l'Archivio Chigi. Dopo le rappresentazioni romane, la "Comica del cielo" ha visto solo due riprese moderne, all'"International Early Music Festival" di Glasgow nel 1992 ed a Chicago nel 2006. > Careri, "La fabbrica degli affetti. La Gerusalemme liberata dai Carracci a Tiepolo", 125, "L'opera teatrale si propone di rappresentare l'intera "Gerusalemme liberata" che è recitata davanti a un falso pubblico, composto di attori vestiti come i cardinali e i notabili invitati ad assistere alla rappresentazione ...". Ademollo, "I teatri di Roma nel secolo decimosettimo; memorie sincrone, inedite o non conosciute, di fatti ed artisti teatrali, "Librettisti," commediografi e musicisti, cronologicamente ordinate per servire alla storia del teatro italiano", 94-100, "... Giovedì sera [26 gennaio] si voleva da congiunti di Sua Santità far recitare l'opera musicale intitolata la Conversione di Santa Baldassarra Comica Spagnuola. La compositione viene ascritta al Casino Bussolante di Nostro Signore, ma la verità è che l'opera è di Sua Santità che la compose quando era nuncio in Spagna, ma per essersi ammalati due musici si è sospesa". Brumana, "Il Tasso e l'opera nel Seicento: una "Gerusalemme" 'interrompue' nella "Comica del Cielo" di Rospigliosi-Abbatini, in AA.VV., "Tasso, la musica, i musicisti", a cura di Maria Antonietta Balsano e Thomas Walker (Firenze, Olschki, in "Quaderni della 'Rivista italiana di musicologia' - Società Italiana di Musicologia", n°19, 1988), 143, n°10, "unico esemplare esistente": ms. BAV Chigi Q.VII.100-102" (in riferimento alla partitura). Codice libreria 129073.
