BOYLE, Robert (1627-1691).
Rotterdam: Arnoldi Leers, 1668. Rotterdam:: Arnoldi Leers, 1668., 1668. 12mo. [xxvi], 392 pp. Added engraved title, woodcut title-page vignette, decorative initials; edges browned. Original full vellum, ms. spine title. Ms. paper spine label. Fine. SECOND LATIN EDITION, corrected [first Latin issue was in 1662]. Boyle's best-known work. In it, Boyle denounced the chemistry of his day, opposed the iatrochemists' doctrine of the three principles (salt, sulphur, and mercury), and the four elements of the Aristotelians. Boyle put forth his own theory of corpuscles, thereby defining the elements as separate entities. "The Sceptical chymist is concerned with the relations between chemical substances.... In this sense the book must be considered as one of the most significant milestones on the way to the chemical revolution of Lavoisier." Printing and the mind of man.

VIEIRA, P. Antonio, S.J.
Lisbon, Na Officina de Ioam da Costa, 1668. - 4°, disbound. Woodcut arms of Portugal on title page, woodcut and typographical headpieces. Light dampstains. Short tear at lower edge of title page, touching rule. A few printed side-notes shaved. Overall good condition. 36 pp. *** FIRST EDITION. Vieira (1608-1697) is described by Boxer as "certainly the most remarkable man in the seventeenth-century Luso-Brazilian world" (A Great Luso-Brazilian Figure: Padre António Vieira, S.J., p. 4). Born in Lisbon, he moved to Bahia as a child and there became a Jesuit novice in 1623. By 1635, when he was ordained, he was already famous as a preacher, and when the Dutch withdrew from Brazil it was he who was chosen to preach the victory sermon. Vieira, a trusted advisor of D. João IV, was sent by him on diplomatic missions to France, Holland and Rome. Beginning in 1652 he spent nine years as a missionary in Maranhão, where he vehemently defended the rights of the Indians against the colonists who wanted to enslave them. As a result, the colonists managed to have him and all the other Jesuits in Pará and Maranhão deported in 1661. Back in Lisbon, his campaign for toleration of the New Christians (crypto-Jews) and his Sebastianist beliefs led to his trial by the Inquisition. He was found guilty, but the ascension of the future D. Pedro II as regent in 1668 led to his release. Vieira?s status as a diplomat and missionary would guarantee his letters a place in Portuguese history, but his style and content are also exceptional: his letters and state-papers are invaluable sources for the period, … [Click Below for Full Description]

He was a disciple of Galileo, but Vatican politics led to him become one of the Inquisitors who signed the infamous condemnation of 1633. His close friendship and influence with Pope Urban VIII led many to assume that he would succeed to the Papal throne, but his death followed very closely upon that of Urban. Bentivoglio's portrait was painted by Van Dyck in 1623.Armorial bookplate and trivial early inscription on front pastedown. Joints cracking. Some light wear to edges of covers. Internally fine.

Some minor stains, some repaired (some holes left unrepaired) marginal worm-trails, A6 repaired margin. Bookplate of University of Keele, presented by C. W. Turner; early signature of Henry Richardson title. RARE. First Edition of Glanville's defense of the Royal Society as encouraged by Oldenburg. Glanvill defended the researches of the Royal Society in a long address to the Society and he was admitted as a member and earned a reputation as a "potentially valuable apologist." ... "The address won Glanvill election to the Royal Society and a reputation as a potentially valuable apologist. When Thomas Sprat's History of the Royal Society failed to silence the critics, Oldenburg encouraged Glanvill to write a supplementary defense, which appeared in 1668 under the title Plus ultra. Its main theme is that the experimental philosophy, and the Royal Society in particular, have accomplished more to advance useful knowledge in a few years "than all the Philosophers of the Notional way, since Aristotle opened his Shop in Greece." - Dictionary of Scientific Biography. Glanvill (1636-1680), "His style is often admirable, not infrequently recalling that of Sir Thomas Browne. His intellect was versatile, active, and sympathetic, but he is rather rhetorical than logical. In his dislike to the scholastic philosophy he followed Bacon and the founders of the Royal Society.

Rycaut, Paul.
London, for John Starkey & Henry Browne, 1668. - Folio (198 x 310 mm). (8), 218 pp. With 19 text engravings and two plates (29 costume illustrations in all); wants the frontispiece. Later half calf on five raised bands, gilt, with giltstamped spine label. Marbled endpapers. Edges sprinkled in red. Second printed edition of Sir Paul Rycaut‘s famous Turkish chronicle (the first available), drawn from various authentic sources and from the author‘s own observations. "His most important work [.] presents an animated and, on the whole, faithful picture of Turkish manners" (DNB). "Provides an account of the society and political system of the Ottoman Empire with unprecedented thoroughness" (cf. Osterhammel, Die Entzauberung Asiens, 32). "An extremely important and influential work, which provides the fullest account of Ottoman affairs during the 17th century" (Blackmer). The 1666 first edition, which this replaces, was almost entirely destroyed by the Great Fire of London. The attractive engravings depict dignitaries and persons of various ranks in their costumes, also including the illustration of a turban. The loss of the frontispiece is to some degree extenuated by the fact that it merely showed a repeat of the engraving on fol. B2v (Sultan Mehmed IV on his throne). - Corners bumped. Some foxing, but still a good, prettily bound copy. Provenance: bookplate of Stefanos Karatheodoris, a Greek Phanariote diplomat in Ottoman service and father of the mathematician Constantin Carathéodory. Blackmer 1463. Wing R2413. Weber II, 326.

H.L.Q.S."."Elsholtz war nicht der einzige und wahrscheinlich nicht einmal der erste, der solche Versuche unternahm. Michael Ettmüller berichtet in seinem Buch "De chirurgia infusoria", daß der Jäger eines Edelmannes aus der Lausitz im .Jahre 1642 Hunden Alkohol in die Venen injiziert habe und sie damit betrunken macht. Ettmüller hat außerdem bereits klar erkannt, daß diese intravenöse Injektion therapeutisch dann in Betracht kommt, wenn eine Veränderung der Medikamente im Verdauungskanal ausgeschaltet werden soll oder wenn eine Aufnahme der Arzneistoffe von der Speiseröhre aus nicht möglich ist, also bei Schluck Unfähigkeit aller Art oder bei Resorptionsstörungen. Auch in England wurden 1657 auf die Anregung von Christopher Wren (1632-1723), der nicht einmal Arzt, sondern Baumeister, Astronom und Chemiker war, und bald danach von R. Lowe ähnliche Versuche zwecks Durchführung von Gefäßinjektionen und Infusionen angestellt. Der Chemiker Robert Boyle (1627-1601), der diese Versuche von Wren mit Opiumlösungen an Hunden miterlebte, berichtet darüber "Kaum hatten wir den Hund losgebun … [Click Below for Full Description]

DESCARTES, René
Paris, Angot 1668. 4to. 303 [recte: 305] pp., (23) pp., 127 pp., (1) p. With repeated printer's divice and many woodcut diagrams. Contemporary leather (spine renewed [using the original material], corners restored), spine gilt, gilt stamped title to spine. Third edition of the discours, édition originale de la Méchanique, 1st French edition of the theory of music. Guibert listed this edition of the Discours as being the third; he did not take into account the edition of 1657, which is only known through 2 examples. The first edition of the Discours le la methode published in 1637 - publication was anonymous, not least as a result of the sentence against Galileo of 1632 - which is acknowledged as being the first scientific-philosophic work written in French. It forms, at the same time, the basis for rationalistic mechanism in the 18th century as well as for later scientific models. By way of critical discussion of mainstream philosophical tradition in the Discours he presents the "individualist gesture" in contrast to this tradition: in the "World as a Book" the reflective individual finds the rules concerning this world and of thought. La Dioptrique, les Meteores, la Mechanique and also the theories of music are applications of the methodological discussion. In 1618 Descartes had written the compendium musicae for the mathematician Isaak Beekmann and had presented him with the manuscript, together with his request that he keep it a secret; he arranged for its first publication in 1650. Descartes is regarded as the founder of "rationalised theory of emotions "; music can cre … [Click Below for Full Description]

MAURICEAU, François.
A Paris: Chez Jean Henault...Jean D'Houry...Robert de Ninville...[&] Jean Baptiste Coignard, 1668. FIRST EDITION of the book which "established obstetrics as a science" (G&M). This was the outstanding textbook of the time, the first important textbook of obstetrics for nearly sixty years (since that of Jacques Guillemeau in 1609), and the first important obstetrical text to be published in five vernacular languages as well as Latin. "While much in Mauriceau's treatise echoed the teachings of his predecessors, the work also included several important new features, such as Mauriceau's detailed analysis of the mechanism of labor, his introduction of the practice of delivering women in bed rather than in the obstetric chair, the earliest account of the prevention of congenital syphilis by antisyphilitic treatment during pregnancy, and the rebuttal of Paré's erroneous account of pubic separation during birth" (Norman). The original illustrations, many signed "du Cerceau", who was a junior member of a famous family of architects and artists, set a new trend in obstetric illustration. G&M 6147. Grolier One Hundred (Medicine), 33. Lilly, Notable Medical Books, p. 85. Norman catalogue 1461. Radcliffe, Milestones in Midwifery, pp. 23-26. Speert, Milestones, pp. 558-566.

Burman, Pieter; Joannes Oosterdijk Schacht
4°: [28] 346 [10]; [4] 48 [26] pp. Met fraaie titelgravure door F. van Blyswyk en gegraveerde afbeeldingen van 4 Griekse munten. Titelpagina in rood en zwart. Kartonnen band. Lit.: NNBW IV, 354 De 'Vectigalia populi Romani' (De belastingen van het Romeinse volk) schreef Pieter Burman (Utrecht 1668 - Leiden 1741) in 1694. Het was een door zijn tijdgenoten hooggeprezen vervolg op zijn juridische dissertatie uit 1687, waarmee hij zijn studies in Utrecht en Leiden had afgesloten. Het stuk dat hierop volgt, 'Zeus kataibatès' (Zeus de bliksemgod) is een verhandeling uit 1700 over de afbeelding van de Griekse oppergod op munten uit Cyrrhus, een stad in het noorden van Syrië. Burman was toen al enkele jaren hoogleraar in de geschiedwetenschappen in Utrecht. In de jaren die volgden zou Burman veel publiceren op het gebied van de klassieke filologie, eerst in Utrecht, waar hij echter verwikkeld raakte in een aantal hooglopende conflicten, en vanaf 1715 in Leiden waar hij hoogleraar Grieks en Latijn werd en bovendien universiteitsbibliothecaris. Hij wordt beschouwd als een van de belangrijkste filologen van de 18e eeuw. Bijgebonden is de lijkrede op Burman, die werd uitgesproken door Herman Oosterdijk Schacht. Daarachter volgen lijkdichten van Johannes Oosterdijk Schacht, Franciscus Burman, Joannes Arntzenius, Abraham van Toll, Daniël van Alphen, Henr. Snakenburg, Gebrardus Schróder, Adr. Heckenhoek en Jan Balde jr.
