Rotterdam, Gedrukt bij Johannes Naeranus, 1668. 12mo. 498,(6 blank) p. Vellum 12.5 cm (Ref: Geerebaert 138,11,6; OiN 362) (Condition: Binding scuffed, spotted and soiled. Frontispiece removed. Oval stamp on the title. Some worming in the blank upper margin, occasionally nibbling at letters. Paper yellowing) (Note: The late antique grammarian Aelius Donatus (4th century A.D) wrote not only a commentary on the plays of the Roman playwright Publius Terentius Afer, ca. 190-159 B.C., but also a short biography, in which he tells that Terentius was born in the Roman province Africa and that he came as a slave in the houshold of the senator Terentius Lucanus. He adopted his name when he was manumitted. Terentius is the author of 'fabulae palliatae', which means 'plays in Greek cloths'. He adapted Greek plays, especially those of the Greek playwright Menander, to the taste of the Romans. Six of his comedies have survived. For later generations he became a model for elegant Latin. His style was closer to everyday conversation than Plautus', an earlier contemporary comic playwright, whose style was more extravagant. He was quoted by Cicero, Horace, Persius and the Church Fathers. Ever since antiquity he lived also a long and influential life in schools as a model for Latin language and rhetoric. In the Middle Ages he was read for his moral sentences. He was imitated by the German abbess Hrotsvitha of Gandersheim (ca. 935 - ca. 973) in her 'Dramenbuch', with which she wanted to create a Christian alternative for the pagan comedies. With the coming of humanism Terentius enjoyed a renai … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

BORELLI, Giovanni Alfonso
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 ‘Following a preliminary essay sent anonymously to Riccioli in 1666, Borelli put forward his arguments in De vi percussionis (Bologna 16 … [Click Below for Full Description]

"Pianta prospettica della città tratta dall'edizione del 1725 de ""Il Theatrum Statuum Sabaudiae"", raccolta in immagini delle dimore, chiese, luoghi, facenti parte del dominio dei Savoia alla fine del XVII secolo. Impresa editoriale senza precedenti e iniziativa promozionale ante-litteram, il Theatrum Statuum Regiae Celsitudinis Sabaudiae Ducis, Pedemontii Principis, Cypri Regis fu il risultato dell'ambizioso progetto intrapreso dal duca Carlo Emanuele II di Savoia negli anni sessanta del Seicento, perseguito sino al compimento negli anni ottanta dalla duchessa reggente Maria Giovanna Battista di Savoia Nemours. L'opera fu stampata per la prima volta nel 1668 ad Amsterdam, presso la tipografia Blaeu e successivamnete ristampata dalla tipografia Mortier fino al 1725. La pubblicazione è nata sicuramente come manifesto politico del duca di Savoia, per far conoscere alla comunità a alle corti europee il livello raggiunto dai suoi possedimenti. Costituito da due grandi volumi, il Theatrum contiene 145 tavole, con commenti in lingua latina, relative alle città ed alle terre del Ducato, che all'epoca comprendeva Piemonte, Valle d'Aosta, Savoia, Liguria e Nizza marittima. Il primo volume contiene carte geografiche, ritratti, dediche, e vedute della capitale, con piazze, edifici civili e religiosi, ville e castelli, e strutture di difesa dello Stato. Seguivano le immagini delle certose e delle abbazie. Il secondo volume presentava le vedute delle principali città del ducato, le terre della Savoia, del Vercellese e delle altre zone che lo componevano.

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.

First Edition. From an illustrated portrait frontispiece. Rare. Absent the BN of France, the French catalogs, the British Library and English catalogs. Vellum full time. Smooth back silent. The book is a collection of 34 historical novels, each new being followed by Christian and moral reflections. Jean Pierre Camus is indeed the first to have used fiction, ie secular means in a spiritual edification. Camus believed in the virtues of entertainment effect, as new present in this book are exclusively literary, only "reflections" that follow remind us of the spiritual project (not religious), this is all the more surprising that the modern French novel was in its infancy. The style is simple, without affectation, and Plutarch mentions. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

It is traditionally accepted that, like his memoirs, these embassies were also written in prison, but it is unclear how such a place, Bassompierres was able to achieve such a work that required extensive research and access to archives, as well as the work seems to be that much of a historian; it bears the mark in its writing and structure; but it has been initiated, to be carried out in collaboration to complete the work memory. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

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.

WING, Vincent.
[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 endpa … [Click Below for Full Description]

BROWN, Thomas
(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. Tour à tour crédule et sceptique, l'auteur y donne son opinion sur les dogmes et la morale chrétienne. Esprit avant tout tolérant, il se déclare prêt à révérer toute autre religion. Sa curiosité s'étend à toutes sortes de choses : des anthropophages, des Esprits, du combustible utilisé en Enfer... 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.

GUISE (Henri II de Lorraine, duc de)
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.

, . . 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.

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.
