      1668. Si tratta di una copia, realizzata dal Longhi a Bologna verso il 1668, della pianta disegnata e incisa da Federico Agnelli ed edita da Malatesta nel 1666. In basso a destra dedica al conte A. Bentivoglio di Francesco Sabadini. Ai due lati sei vignette raffiguranti costumi e mestieri romani; in alto dodici vedutine di città dello Stato Pontificio. Il alto a destra lo stemma di papa Clemente IX (1667 - 1669). Sotto un foglio di testo contenente una estensiva legenda con la descrizione della città, con la firma dell'editore Giuseppe Longhi: Roma Padrona e Regina di tutte le città e Capo del Mondo... Dal punto di vista cartografico la carta è basta sulla pianta murale di Antonio Tempesta del 1593, in particolare dalla ristampa curata da Giacomo de Rossi nel 1661, con il colonnato di San Pietro del Bernini. Bellissima prova, stampata da 4 rami, alcune pieghe di carta e piccoli restauri nel testo in basso, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. Rarissima. It is a copy, made by Longhi in Bologna to 1668, of the map designed and engraved by Federico Agnelli and edited by Malatesta in 1666. In the lower right corner dedicated to A. Bentivoglio by Francesco Sabadini. On both sides of the map are depicted six Roman costumes; at the top twelve views of the main city of the Papal State. The upper right corner the coat of arms of Pope Clement IX (1667 - 1669). Under a piece of text containing an extensive legend with the description of the city, ther is the signature of the publisher Giuseppe Longhi. From the cartographic point of view the map derived from the wall map by Antonio Tempesta (1593), in particular from the reprint edited by Giacomo de Rossi in 1661, with the colonnade of St. Peter by Bernini. Excellent work, printed by 4 plates, some paper folds and small restorations in the text at the bottom, otherwise in excellent condition. An extremely rare map. Bologna Bologna C.

        Discours de la Méthode pour bien conduir sa Raison et chercher la verité dans les Sciences. 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

      Angot, 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.

        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. (12), 360, (2)pp., frontispice pleine basane XVIIIe, dos à 4 nerfs, pièce de titre en maroquin havane, tranches rouges (importantes restaurations du dos) 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".

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).

Upon publication the book did not receive rave reviews ? Anthony Wood (1632?95), antiquary and historian of Oxford University, claimed there "are almost as many errors as lines," yet this text is an excellent example of how the losing side chose to interpret events during early post-war years (DNB online).

      Johan de Witt was one of Europe's greatest statesmen of the 17th century: Appointed the "councillor pensionary" (i.e., the political leader) of Holland (1653-72), he successfully led the United Provinces in the First and Second Anglo-Dutch wars (1652-54, 1665-67) while at the same time effectively consolidating the country's position as a formidable commercial and naval power. The present work publishes the resolutions that the States General secretly reached during Witt's years leading the republic, matters being related that would have led to political, diplomatic, or economic trouble or reprisals if publicly known in "real time." Vol. I covers the period 26 February 1653 to 17 December 1658 and II from 17 January 1659 to 20 December 1668. Provenance: From the collection of Frank Marshall Vanderhoof (American scholar, university librarian, private collector; 1919-2005).

        A blow at modern Sadducism in some philosophical considerations about witchcraft.

      London: Pr. by E. Cotes for James Collins 8vo (17.7 cm, 7"). [28], 183, [13 (1 adv.)] pp. (lacking 121/22, supplied in facsimile).. 1668 Glanvill's curious, long-evolving defense of the existence of witchcraft and black magic — a work recorded in Pepys's diary as having been much enjoyed by him and his wife, although not entirely convincing to them. This treatise offers various reasons both philosophical and empirical to sway those skeptical of the reality of black magic, including anecdotal stories about witchery's effects; it later informed Cotton Mather's Discourse on Witchcraft. The title-page calls this a corrected and enlarged fourth edition; it is actually a => much-revised version of the work Glanvill originally published in 1666 as A Philosophical Endeavour towards the Defence of the Being of Witches and Apparitions, which was in turn revised and republished in 1667 as Some Philosophical Considerations Touching the Being of Witches and Witchcraft, before being printed in the form here twice in 1668; from 1681 onwards, the work was known as Sadducismus Triumphatus. The Philosophical Endeavour portion of the present edition has a separate title-page (dated 1668), as do the other two sections, Palpable Evidence of Spirits and Witchcraft: In an Account of the Fam'd Disturbance by the Drummer, in the House of M. Mompesson, and A Whip for the Droll, Fidler to the Atheist: Being Reflections on Drollery & Atheism. Provenance: Front fly-leaf with elegantly written 17th-century inked inscription (in Latin) noting the book was a gift to "Gulielmo Seeke" from William Pudsey, a graduate of Lincoln College, Oxford; below the inscription Seeke has calligraphically signed his name in English. First main text page with early inked inscription of Joseph Moses; title-page rubber-stamped by the Charles Holbrook Library of the Pacific School of Religion (properly released, with bookplate laid in). Period-style speckled calf, framed in double blind fillets, spine with gilt-stamped title-label, blind-ruled raised bands, and blind-tooled compartment decorations. Ex-library as above, title-page verso with rubber-stamped numeral and shadow of pencilled numeral, one text page with rubber-stamp in lower margin, touching one word without obscuring sense. Pp. 121/22 supplied in fine facsimile. Faint age-toning and occasional light spotting, with offsetting to margins of first and last few leaves; short tear in upper margins of first two leaves of dedication. => A solid and handsomely bound copy of a frankly spellbinding text.

        Esperienze intorno alla generazione degl'Insetti fatte da Francesco Redi Accademico della Crusca, e da lui scritte in una lettera all'illustrissimo signor Carlo Dati.

      - Firenze, all'Insegna della Stella, 1668. 4to (235 x 165mm). pp. (8), 228, title printed in red and black with engraved vignette, with 10 full page engravings and 2 smaller engraved text illustrations and 28 numbered engraved plates. Contemporary vellum. First edition, first issue. A few copies have a plate numbered 29 showing a fly which was issued later. "Redi's masterpiece is considered to be 'Esperienze intorno alla generazione degl'Insetti' (1668), in which he disproved the doctrine of spontaneous generation in insects, inherited from Aristotle and still considered dogma. The microscope revealed in insects an organization as marvelous as it was unsuspected. Redi prepared and 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 XI, p. 341). "Redi was one of the first to disprove the theory of spontaneous generation" (Horblit 88). A few text leaves with some dampstaining at the outer margin and apart from that a fine copy with clear impressions of the plates.D. Pandi, Bibl. delle opere di F. Redi p. 3 'Raro'; Nissen ZBI, 3319; Norman p. 655 (likewise quoting a copy with 28 plates). [Attributes: First Edition]

        Motets a Deux Voix. avec la Basse-Continue...Tenor, vel Cantus [-Altus, vel Superius; Bassus-Continuus].

      Titles within ornamental woodcut borders & woodcut vignettes on titles. 3 p.l., 26 leaves; 3 p.l., 34 leaves; 3 p.l., 37 leaves. Three vols. Small 4to, 19th-cent. morocco, signed "Bound by Holloway," sides panelled in gilt, spines gilt, a.e.g. Paris: R. Ballard, "seul Imprimeur du Roy, pour la Musique," 1668. First edition and very rare; WorldCat locates only two copies (BnF and Bibliothèque Sainte-Geneviève). This is the fine and large Henry Huth (bookplate) -- W.A. White (?) -- John Whipple Frothingham (bookplate) set. Du Mont (1610-84), French composer, organist, and harpsichordist, was the organist at the church of St Paul in the fashionable Marais district from 1643 until his death. From about 1652 to 1660 he served the king's brother, the Duke of Anjou, as organist and harpsichordist and in June 1660 became the harpsichordist to the new queen, Marie-Thérèse. In 1663 he was appointed sous-maître of the royal Chapel. Du Mont was one of the first to introduce the basso continuo into France and was the first to use figures and to print a separate continuo part. "Five of the 30 motets included in the Motets à deux voix are organized as dialogues for specific characters such as sinners and angels or brides and bridegrooms. O fidelis miseremini (no. 30), shows Du Mont's exploitation of the technique of dramatic monody. The affective intervals, repeated text fragments treated sequentially and the discreet chromaticism owe a debt to Carissimi and mark this work along with the dialogues as an important precursor of Charpentier's Histoires sacrées...Through his grands motets Du Mont achieved a position in French religious music 'somewhat comparable to that of Haydn in the symphony and string quartets' (Garros)."-Grove, Vol. 5, pp. 712-14. Provenance note: Frothingham (1878-1935), who at the time of his marriage in 1921 lived just up the street at 375 West End Avenue, was the nephew of William Augustus White (1843-1927), the great collector of Elizabethan literature and William Blake. Following his uncle's death, Frothingham inherited a portion of White's library which he removed to France and where it remained until very recently. Understandably not listed in Bartlett's Catalogue of the Early English Books chiefly of the Elizabethan Period collected by William Augustus White (1926). Fine set. ❧ The Huth Library (1880), Vol. II, p. 438. .

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. Horblit, n.24 ''fundamental work in philosophy and on the method of science.''.

        A BLOW AT MODERN SADDUCISM IN SOME PHILOSOPHICAL CONSIDERATIONS ABOUT WITCHCRAFT, TO WHICH IS ADDED, THE RELATION OF THE FAM'D DISTURBANCE BY THE DRUMMER, IN THE HOUSE OF MR. JOHN MOMPESSON, WITH SOME REFLECTIONS ON DROLLERY AND ATHEISME

      London: E. C[otes]. for James Collins, 1668. Third Edition n. This major publication on witches is divided into two parts, the first setting out a rationale for belief in witches and spirits, the second providing "palpable evidence" of their existence. Joseph Glanvill (1636-80) presided as rector of the Abbey Church at Bath and was a chaplain to Charles II, but neither these lofty positions nor his membership in the Royal Society deterred him from embracing a belief in the existence of witches. (Glanvill was not unusual among natural philosophers in Restoration England for his belief in spirits and their ability to intervene in the material world.) Ultimately, he was less concerned with defending belief in actual witches than he was with discouraging the disbelief in demons and spirits that could lead to heresy and atheism. To this end, he was actively engaged in gathering evidence of spiritual and psychic phenomena, heading up, with Henry More (1614-87), an association for "psychical research" (a kind of prototype for the modern Society for Psychical Research). It was in this capacity that he ended up doing such things as listening to a ghostly drummer who was tapping out his vengeance in a house at Tedworth in Wiltshire, a rhythmic séance that is dealt with at length in the second part of the text here. Glanvill was known throughout Europe and the New World as one of the leading defenders of belief in witchcraft. Unfortunately, his influence reached Cotton Mather, who greatly affected the Salem witch trials and whose writings drew heavily from Glanvill's work.. 152 x 95 mm. (6 x 3 3/4"). 8 p.l., 160 pp. Two parts in one volume (with continuous pagination, but with three title pages). Third Edition. Contemporary speckled calf, rebacked preserving most of original backstrip, raised bands flanked by gilt and blind rules, panels with small gilt flower at center, black morocco label, marbled endpapers (corners of upper cover restored). Front free endpaper with ownership inscription of "J. H. C." dated 1849; title page with about half the letterpress in old inked facsimile. Wing G-799 and G-818. Thin two-inch crack to tail edge of rear board, leather on upper board a little crackled, leaves trimmed close at head with running titles occasionally cut into, the text lightly browned, otherwise an appealing copy of a book expected to be found dilapidated--the restored binding solid and the text surprisingly fresh and clean. This major publication on witches is divided into two parts, the first setting out a rationale for belief in witches and spirits, the second providing "palpable evidence" of their existence. Joseph Glanvill (1636-80) presided as rector of the Abbey Church at Bath and was a chaplain to Charles II, but neither these lofty positions nor his membership in the Royal Society deterred him from embracing a belief in the existence of witches.

        THE WORKS OF MR ABRAHAM COWLEY

      London: Printed by J. M. for Henry Herringman, 1668. FIRST COLLECTED EDITION, FIRST PRINTING (without the errata slip added quite late into the first printing, according to Perkin) y. This is a significant association copy of the first edition of the collected works of one of the most precocious poets in the annals of English literature. Cowley (1616-67) was producing poetic works of inexplicable sophistication before he had settled into puberty; he published his first volume of verse at 15; and he went on to become one of the most popular poets of his day. Cowley was a staunch royalist who served in the exiled court of Charles I's queen, Henrietta Maria, where he helped to encode and decipher messages sent between the monarchy's supporters, including the royal couple themselves. Despite having been arrested and imprisioned as a royalist agent at one point, Cowley escaped the Cromwell years largely unscathed and retired to the countryside in 1663. Upon his death, Cowley was not only given the extraordinary honor of burial in Westminster Abbey (noted by the DNB as "the most lavish funeral which had ever been given to a mere man of letters in England") but was also afforded a privileged spot next to the graves of Spenser and Chaucer. Cowley's influence on contemporary poetry was demonstrably deep; his funerary monument refers to him as "the English Virgil," and Perkin asserts that "[Cowley's] fame as a poet exceeded even that of Milton" during the waning years of the Restoration. Our first collected edition of Cowley's work was compiled by his friend and literary executor Thomas Sprat and published the year following the author's death. It includes reprints of his most popular works, among them "Poems" (which contained both "Davideis" and "Pindaric Odes"), "Verses," and "The Mistress," several lesser-known prose essays and poems (including one on Cromwell's government), and some hitherto unpublished material including his "Several Discourses by Way of Essays in Verse and Prose." Thomas Cowley, whose presentation inscription distinguishes this copy as being particularly desirable, was the executor and sole heir of his brother Abraham. It is likely that the recipient was John Farington, a gentleman connected to the family of Sir Thomas Miller, 1st baronet of Chichester, by both rank and marriage. John Farington the elder (ca. 1609-80) and Sir Thomas Miller (ca.1635-1705) both served as MPs in the House of Commons for Chichester after the Restoration. Parliamentary records note that a John Farington married Miller's daughter, though whether this refers to John the elder or one of his sons is unclear.. 290 x 183 mm. (11 1/2 x 7 1/4"). 22 p.l., 41, [1], 80, [4], 70 [i.e. 68], 154, 23, [1] 148 pp. FIRST COLLECTED EDITION, FIRST PRINTING (without the errata slip added quite late into the first printing, according to Perkin). Contemporary sprinkled calf, rebacked with most of original spine laid on, raised bands, spine compartments intricately tooled in gilt, red morocco label (two repaired patches on the front cover and one on rear). Frontispiece portrait of the author, title with printer's device, headpieces to each new section. Three sections with separate title pages as called for in Perkin. A PRESENTATION COPY FROM COWLEY'S BROTHER, with his signed inscription to John Farington dated Feb 7, 1668-9 on the front free endpaper; front pastedown with the bookplate of Sir Thomas Miller, Baronet; front free endpaper with the bookplate of Robert S. Pirie. Perkin B1; Wing C-6649 (conflating first and second printing). Corners slightly rubbed, but the restored binding with little wear. Half-inch ink stain obscuring a dozen words over three leaves, two leaves rather wrinkled and smudged around the edges, probably during printing (text unaffected), other insignificant imperfections, otherwise an excellent copy internally, unusually clean and fresh with ample margins. This is a significant association copy of the first edition of the collected works of one of the most precocious poets in the annals of English literature. Cowley (1616-67) was producing poetic works of inexplicable sophistication before he had settled into puberty; he published his first volume of verse at 15; and he went on to become one of the most popular poets of his day. Cowley was a staunch royalist who served in the exiled court of Charles I's queen, Henrietta Maria, where he helped to encode and decipher messages sent between the monarchy's supporters, including the royal couple themselves. Despite having been arrested and imprisioned as a royalist agent at one point, Cowley escaped the Cromwell years largely unscathed and retired to the countryside in 1663. Upon his death, Cowley was not only given the extraordinary honor of burial in Westminster Abbey (noted by the DNB as "the most lavish funeral which had ever been given to a mere man of letters in England") but was also afforded a privileged spot next to the graves of Spenser and Chaucer. Cowley's influence on contemporary poetry was demonstrably deep; his funerary monument refers to him as "the English Virgil," and Perkin asserts that "[Cowley's] fame as a poet exceeded even that of Milton" during the waning years of the Restoration. Our first collected edition of Cowley's work was compiled by his friend and literary executor Thomas Sprat and published the year following the author's death. It includes reprints of his most popular works, among them "Poems" (which contained both "Davideis" and "Pindaric Odes"), "Verses," and "The Mistress," several lesser-known prose essays and poems (including one on Cromwell's government), and some hitherto unpublished material including his "Several Discourses by Way of Essays in Verse and Prose." Thomas Cowley, whose presentation inscription distinguishes this copy as being particularly desirable, was the executor and sole heir of his brother Abraham. It is likely that the recipient was John Farington, a gentleman connected to the family of Sir Thomas Miller, 1st baronet of Chichester, by both rank and marriage. John Farington the elder (ca. 1609-80) and Sir Thomas Miller (ca.1635-1705) both served as MPs in the House of Commons for Chichester after the Restoration. Parliamentary records note that a John Farington married Miller's daughter, though whether this refers to John the elder or one of his sons is unclear.

      Quattro lettere manoscritte, prima metà del XVIII secolo. - Manoscritto cartaceo, vol. in-4 (mm. 265x180), ff. (2, il primo di indice al verso del foglio di sguardia, il secondo col titolo), 138 (numerazione continuata), leg. coeva p. perg., tit. ms. al dorso. E' costituito da quattro fascicoli, tutti in chiara grafia cancelleresca (gli ultimi due, vergati dalla stessa mano, hanno un bel titolo racchiuso in elegante bordura ornamentale a più colori). - I) ''Lettera di Mons. Cornelio Bentivoglio al N.H. Giambattista Recanati'', ff. 1-10. Interessante lettera scritta da Marco Cornelio Bentivoglio d'Aragona (Ferrara 1668-Roma 1732) inviato da Clemente XI nel 1711 quale nunzio della corte di Francia, nella quale il Bentivoglio, letterato e membro di varie accademie letterarie, invia alcuni suggerimenti e considerazioni in difesa dei poeti italiani attaccati dai critici francesi (Fontenelle, Perrault, La Motte). - II)- ''Istruzione alli ambasciatori ordinari e straordinarij e residenti che appo il papa si dicono legati vicelegati, e nunzij e sovra li costumi, la carica, li privileggi e servitù dell'ambasciatore di Monsù Grandòn cortigiano di Parigi'', ff. 11-62 (ult. 4 bianchi). Curiosissima operetta sugli ambasciatori, loro costumi, loro attribuzioni e privilegi, con interessanti e divertenti aneddoti. - III)- ''Lettera di Confidenza scritta in Ciffra dalla M.ta di Filippo Quarto Re della Spagna al Conte d'Ognate Vice Re di Napoli'', ff. 63-88 (l'ult. b.)

Offensiva l'osservazione nei confronti dello Stato Pontificio che sarebbe stato ''in passato quasi mercenario delle guerre di Spagna''. Curioso il giudizio sul duca di Savoia: ''potrebbe dare qualche pensiero''. - IV) - ''Lettera di notizie di Stato del Sig. Marchese di Caracena Governatore e Capitano Gnale dello Stato di Milano In risposta al Sig. Duca dell'Infantado Ambasciator per S.M. Cattolica appresso la S.ta di Nro Sig.

        RELATIONE DELLA SIGNORIA DI LUCA, E SUO DOMINIO.

      Appresso Pietro De La Place 1668 Prima edizione. Cm.14,5x9,2. Pg.52. Legatura in piena pergamena rigida. Minima tarlatura che attraversa il volumetto senza minimamente ledere il testo. Rarissima prima edizione, ristampata nel 1675 di un'opera del Conte Galeazzo Gualdo Priorato (Vicenza, 1606 - 1678). Questi giunse a Lucca nella seconda metà del XVII secolo, invitatovi dalla Repubblica per scrivere sulla città e tacitare le dicerie che la volevano ricettacolo di eretici, mettendone a rischio l'autonomia. Mercenario nelle Fiandre e in Francia nella campagna contro gli Ugonotti, trasse per scritto le sue esperienze e si dedicò a scrivere cose storiche per il miglior offerente. A Lucca ricevette nel 1666 venticinque doppie, e infatti la sua "Relatione", di notevole interesse documentario, risultò alquanto gradita al governo cittadino. "Pieno di gratitudine per la generosità lucchese, il Priorato apriva la descrizione della città parlando delle sue origini e delle poderose fortificazioni che la cingevano. Ne illustrava quindi la struttura di governo, insistendo sulla "splendidezza" di quei cittadini e sulla loro grande ospitalità. Anche il declino della mercatura veniva da lui interpretato in modo positivo, cioè come libera scelta dell'aristocrazia che, ormai stanca di trafficare, aveva preferito ritirarsi dagli affari per meglio godere le proprie rendite e le deliziose ville sparse nella campagna circostante. L'Opera si concludeva con una descrizione delle chiese, dei miracoli e dei corpi dei santi raccolti nella città non senza, prima, un garbato accenno alle donne lucchesi "belle quanto ornate di una compita modestia" (Sodini, "In quello strano e fondo verno", 37). Il testo può essere considerato, a pieno titolo, la prima "guida" in assoluto della città di Lucca. > Parenti, Dizionario dei luoghi di stampa falsi, inventati o supposti, 52 / 53, "Furono pubblicati quattordici "Relationi" di Galeazzo Gualdo Priorato, undici delle quali con la sottoscrizione editoriale, evidentemente falsa, di Colonia ...... Questo nome falso fu usato da F.Foppens a Bruxelles per la traduzione francese de "Il trattato di pace fra le due corone nell'anno 1659", dello stesso Gualdo Priorato ..... Non è azzardato pensare che anche le Relazioni siano state stampate a Bruxelles, dato che le caratteristiche tipografiche confermerebbero l'ipotesi". Moreni, I, 466. Lozzi, 2394.

        A Philosophicall Discourse concerning Speech,

      London: Printed for John Martin, Printer to the Royal Society, , 1668. conformable to the Cartesian Principles. Duodecimo (145 x 75 mm). Contemporary calf skilfully rebacked to style. From the distinguished library of the Earls of Macclesfield (Shirburn Castle), with their embossed armorial stamp on the title page; also with the contemporary ownership inscriptions on front and rear free endpapers of Thomas Arnoll (b. 1662) and Elizabeth Arnoll. Closed-tear into A3 (mis-printed as A4) neatly repaired. A very good copy. First edition in English. Géaraud de Cordemoy (1626-1684), philosopher, historian and lawyer, was one of the leading Cartesians of his day; his Discours de la parole was first published at Paris in the same year, 1668. "In his day, judging from the speed with which his writings were translated into Latin and English, Cordemoy was a highly respected, if not an overwhelming presence, on the European intellectual scene... For [him] speech was a sign of humanity, hence unmechanical and, as certain moderns would have it, 'unbounded'. This is why Cordemoy comes in for such considerable praise in [Noam] Chomsky's Cartesian Linguistics [1966]; as Chomsky puts it, Cordemoy has argued 'that there can be no mechanistic explanation for the novelty, coherence, and relevance of normal speech'... The Discourse of Speech may be profitably read still as an entertaining and impressive meditation on topics that touch on issues debated even today by scholars involved in various ways with linguistic matters" (R. W. Rieber ed., Psychology of Language and Thought: Essays on the Theory and History of Psycholinguistics, 1980, pp. 62-64).
