Malpighi (Marcello) and Carlo Fracassati.
Caspar Commelius, 1669. woodcut printer's device on title, with 5 folding engraved plates, minor damp-staining at the beginning, pp. [iv], 260, 12mo, contemporary vellum, textblock detached from lower cover where a shorter tract appears to have been removed, blindstamp of Mark Pattison of Lincoln College on title, good. 'Fracassati, Malpighi's close friend, confidant, and colleague at Bologna, was responsible for assembling these letters for publication. The work contains four letters of Malpighi and two of Fracassati on the brain, tongue, adipose tissues, and skin. The five folding plates illustrate Malpighi's microscopic investigations of the brain and tongue. Malpighi's name is celebrated in several eponymous anatomical structures in the kidney, spleen, skin, and lungs. It is in the epistle on the tongue that he described the mucosal layer beneath the epidermis which is now called the Malpighian layer. In "De omento, pinguedine, et adiposis ductibus," Malpighi reported his observation of the red blood corpuscles. Unfortunately he mistook them for globules of fat passing into the blood and it wasn't until 1674 that Leeuwenhoek gave the first accurate description of the erythrocytes' (Heirs of Hippocrates). Malpighi's second letter, Exercitatio epistolica de lingua, and Fracassati's first, of the same title, are addressed to Giovanni Alfonso Borelli. Originally published in 1665 under title: Tetras anatomicarum epistolarum; the 1669 edition includes De externo tactus organo, which was published separately in 1665. (Heirs of Hippocrates 570)

Steno, Nicolaus.
Florence, sub Signo Stellae, 1669. 4° (225x169 mm). [4] (one blank and one with title printed on recto in red and black with engraved vignette), 78 pp., [2] (errata and one blank leaf). One folding plate with engraved diagram and explanatory letterpress. Woodcut head- and tailpieces, decorative initials. Contemporary vellum. A tall copy with a stain at the corner of title. First edition of this "great work [.] which outlines the principles of modern geology" (DSB), by the Danish anatomist Niels Stensen, at the time court physician at Florence and dedicated to the Duke of Tuscany. In this work, a landmark of the geology and based on data collected in the Arno Valley, Steno sought to describe the anatomy of the earth and to explain the entire system of nature stratum super stratum. Steno's contributions to plate tectonic theory and to stratigraphy is based on his theory that layers or strata of the earth, which are not horizontal, must have been tilted or folded by a force, such as an earthquake, after they formed. His principle of superposition also applied to other geologic events on the surface, such as lava flows and ash layers from volcanic eruptions. "Steno is traditionally credited with establishing one of the major principles of stratigraphy: the principle of superposition. This is simply the idea that for the layers of sediments found in the earth's crust the lower one were deposited first and are older that the ones that lie above them. This is a simple idea (or may appear to us to be so), and we cannot be sure that Steno was the first to hold or propound it. But th … [Click Below for Full Description]

Tedeschi, 5 incisioni in legno nel testo raffiguranti diagrammi ed esperimenti di ottica; legatura settecentesca in mezza pelle, tassello con titolo in oro e filetti in oro al dorso (minimi restauri). Buon esemplare. Prima edizione del più importante contributo di Benedetto Castelli agli studi di ottica; l'edizione include inoltre due lettere inedite a Galileo (27 giugno 1637 e 2 agosto 1638, pp. 47 - 79) nelle quali l'autore discute del calore, sulla base dei propri esperimenti sull'assorbimento e la trasmissione di calore da parte di oggetti bianchi e neri: "more celebrated is Castelli's discussion of heat in a series of letters to Galileo (1637 - 1638) and particularly his experiments with the absorption of radiant and transmitted heat by black and white objects... [In these two letters] the pursuit of experimental science is even more clearly described than in Galileo's work on bodies in water" (DSB). Nel trattato, alle pp. 1 - 37, Castelli si occupa della percezione del movimento, di illusioni ottiche, dell'uso di lenti specifiche nei telescopi, della camera oscura: "Castelli optical investigations were continued in a treatise sent to Giovanni Ciampoli in 1639 and published posthumously in 1669 [pp. 1 - 37]; with four interesting woodcuts. Included are many observations and conclusions with respect to the persistence of optical images, by which Castelli explained the perception of motion, the illusion of forked tongues in serpents, and other phenomena.

[PERRAULT (Claude)].
A Paris, chez Frédéric Leonard, Impr. ordin. du Roy, rüe S. Iacques, à lEscu de Venise. 1669. 1669 1 vol. in-4° (273 x 204 mm.) de 120 pp. 5 planches dépliantes. Cartonnage 18ème siècle, dos de papier marbré rose, étiquette titrée à l'encre brune, plats recouverts de papier peint orné de motifs curieux : dans une trame dessinant des losanges, formée par de petites ondulations et pétales blancs, des losanges bleu turquoise bordés d'une dentelure noire. Edition originale de la seconde parution des « Parisiens », due à Claude Perrault (1613-1688), chef de file de ce célèbre groupe danatomistes dont les publications marquent le début de lanatomie moderne et comparative. En 1666, avec la constitution de lAcadémie française des Sciences, les membres de la nouvelle Académie se réunissent sous ce nom de « Parisiens », groupe composé, avec Perrault, de Guichard Joseph Duverney, Jean Pecquet, Moyse Charas, et Philippe de la Hire. En juin 1667, ils sont invités à disséquer un « renard marin » et un lion, morts à la ménagerie du Roy. Les rapports de ces dissections furent les premiers dune longue série de descriptions anatomiques qui paraissent illustrées des planches gravées par Sébastien Leclerc. Ces comptes-rendus comprennent à la fin les descriptions de vingt-cinq mammifères, dix-sept oiseaux, cinq reptiles, un amphibien et un poisson. « Bien que certaines des découvertes dont senorgueillissaient les Parisiens, () avaient été déjà observées, cétait la première fois que paraissaient des descriptions et des illustrations aussi précises et justes. » (D.S.B., X, pp. 519-520).

(Titre, Epistre, Avertissement), 418 pp., [1] f. (Approbation et Permission). Plein vélin ancien, dos lisse titré à l'encre brune. (Coin inférieur de la p. 415 restauré. Légère trace de mouillure sur la dernière page de garde). Edition originale de ce très rare ouvrage, qui figure seulement au catalogue de la bibliothèque du Museum dhistoire Naturelle en France. Précieuse relation dun ecclésiastique sur la guerre qui opposa Venise aux Turcs, et le rôle quy joua M. le Marquis Ville, qui y était en tant que Général de lInfanterie, choisi par le Sénat de Venise. Le siège de Candie est un épisode crucial de la conquête de la Crête par les Ottomans et opposa les Vénitiens à lEmpire Ottoman. Long de vingt-et-un an (1648-1669), il est connu comme le plus long de lhistoire. Au cours des trois dernières années de siège, où le Marquis de Ville dont il est question dans le présent ouvrage est envoyé en Crête, les toutes dernières technologies de l'époque sont mises à l'essai dans les deux camps. Venise demanda et obtint de laide de lEurope entière, mais les dissensions ne leur permirent pas de remporter la victoire, que les Turcs acquirent également en achetant les assiégés. On estime les pertes à près de 140 000 morts, simplement du côté turc (dont 25 000 janissaires et 15 pachas). Mais désormais, la présence vénitienne en Crète se limite à trois ports : Gramvoussa, Souda et Spinalonga. Provenance : Bibliothèq … [Click Below for Full Description]

It passed into the possession of Cardinal Bembo, who allowed Pignoria to examine it. Many scholars had different ideas about the function of the Mensa Isiaca but Pignoria's explanation was the simplest and most convincing. He believed that it was a representation of sacrificial ceremonies according to Egyptian rites. The illustrations were executed by Aeneas Vico.Blackmer, 1312, Gay, 1567, Ibrahim - Hilmy, II, 119.

Pieter GOOS (1615 - 1675)
1669. Carta nautica della parte occidentale del Mediterraneo, che comprende la penisola. Figlio del cartografo ed incisore Abraham Goos, Pieter, riprese ed ingrandì l'attività del padre e divenne uno degli incisori più famosi di carte nautiche in attività ad Amsterdam durante la metà del XVII secolo. C osì come Colom, Doncker e Jacobsz, anche Goos pubblicò un atlante nautico, lo Zee - Spiegel, basandolo sulle lastre ottenute da Jacobsz. Questo atlante è stato poi ristampato in numerose edizioni e in diverse lingue, con titoli molto conosciuti all'epoca. Oltre a pubblicare il suo Zee - Spiegel nelle classiche I e II parte (Europa e Coste atlantiche) e parte III (Mediterraneo), diede inizio ad una nuova consuetudine, pubblicando le parti IV e V, relative a carte e indicazioni marinare per le coste delle Indie Occidentali e dell'Africa Occidentale.

The atlas has been then reissued in different editions and languages, and it was very famous among its contemporaries.

Gute Kopie. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale. Marque de l'imprimeur en page de titre, une vignette aux armes de Clément VI. Reliure en pleine basane brune mouchetée d'époque. Dos à nerfs richement orné. Pièce de titre de basane brune mouchetée. Une fente en tête. Une tache blanche en queue. Frottements. Bon exemplaire. L'ouvrage est une réponse au livre du ministre protestant Claude, qui lui-même était une attaque contre un livre d'Aubertin. L'oeuvre d'Arnaud et Nicole dépasse le simple cadre de la polémique et de la contestation des arguments du livre de Claude, il se veut un traité exhaustif de l'eucharistie et des mystère de la saint messe en accumulant les preuves historiques, notamment celles empruntées à l'église d'orient. Arnauld et Nicole, théologiens de Port-Royal, se firent les champions de la querelle religieuse contre les protestants. L'eucharistie était un point du dogme catholique intouchable, le nier comme le firent les protestants, c'était remettre en cause le principe de la transubstantation avec le corps du Christ et la possibilité de la grâce, et démonter les rituels de la messe et sa nécessité.

Nieuhof, Johannes.
Amsterdam, Jacob van Meurs, 1669. Folio (300 x 190 mm). Title printed in red and black. With the same engravings of the first Dutch edition of 1665: coloured engraved title page with the Chinese Emperor seated on a throne, his left arm resting on a globe and a convicted criminal at his feet, full-page coloured engraved portrait of Nieuhof with engraved poem by Jan Vos below, large folding map of China, 34 double-page engraved plates and views of Batavia, Canton, Macao, Nankan, Nankin, Beijing, etc., and 110 half-page engraved views and plates of ceremonies, costumes, animals, fishes and plants in the text all in contemporary colour. Contemporary blindstamped pigskin over wooden boards. German edition. Very scarce coloured copy of the most important embassy to China in the 17th century. Nieuhof's celebrated account of the first trade mission undertaken by the Dutch East India Company (VOC) to the Imperial Court and the Emperor of China is one of the very few non-Jesuit sources of the period. First published in Dutch by Jac. van Meurs at Amsterdam in 1665, it soon became highly popular and was translated not only into German, but also into French, English and Latin. Today, it is regarded as the definitive account of the Dutch Embassy to Peking. - Johannes Nieuhof entered the service of the VOC after having travelled in the service of the Dutch West India Company through the West Indies and Brazil from 1640 to 1649. After two years of travels through the East Indies as a steward of the VOC, he was sent on this Dutch embassy to the Chinese Imperial Court, probably also because … [Click Below for Full Description]

Webb, John
Printed for Nath. Brook, London, 1669. First edition. Title-page printed in red and black, imprimatur (A1v), errata (P3r), lacking folding engraved map. Possibly the first work in China in English, this rare treatise on the supposed original language spoken by Adam and Eve, by the architect John Webb, a pupil of Inigo Jones. Harbsmeier notes that "Webb's contribution to Sinology is so important because he summarized what could be gleaned on the Chinese language from the published Western literature, and because he was the first to make a systematic book-length attempt to define the place of Chinese among the languages of the world.[and] to constructing out of these reports a case that Chinese was the original language of mankind before the building of the Tower of Babel."

GOOS, Pieter (1616-1675).
Amsterdam: 1666-1669. - Single sheet (25 ¾ x 21 ½ inches, full margins with platemark). Fine engraved map, gilded, with original hand color, of the east coast of Africa to the west coast of India (lightly toned, rare spotting). Beautifully hand colored map of the Persian Gulf and Indian Ocean, possibly colored by the school of Dirk Janzoon Van Santen. Van Santen was a distinguished colorist working in Amsterdam at the end of the 17th century, and was known for his lavish gold work often complimented with other expensive pigments such as ultramarine (Goedings 20). The contrasting found in the sunburst above the cartouche of this map, as well as the meticulous detailing of the Equator, the tropics of Cancer and Capricorn, the compass rose, the ships, and the cartouche point to a master colorist. During the seventeenth century, Amsterdam stood at the vanguard of sea chart production. With the expansion of the Dutch marine and mercantile empires it is of little surprise that this particular city excelled in the field with the most up-to-date information arriving with the country's sailing fleet. The Goos' were one of many families to derive a living from the creation of sea charts. This stunning map comes from Pieter Goos' atlas of sea charts, De Zee Atlas ofte Water-Weereld. The son of noted engraver Abraham Goos, he was one of the most important booksellers in Amsterdam during the second half of the seventeenth century, as well as an accomplished engraver. His first pilot was the Zee-Spiegel of 1650 which covered largely European waters. The Zee Atlas covered the whole world. … [Click Below for Full Description]

Paris, Frederic Leonard, 1669. 4to (195 x 155mm). pp. 120, with woodcut title vignette and 5 large folded engraved plates. Old black gilt ornamented boards. First edition and second publication of a group of French anatomists called the 'Parisians'. "Perrault was the leader of a team of comparative anatomists, that included Guichard Joseph Duverney, Jean Pecquet, Moyse Charas and Philippe de la Hire; they were often called the 'Parisians' in contemporary literature because of their membership in the Académie Royale des Sciences. Their investigations began with a thresher shark and lion from the royal menagerie and went on to encompass forty-nine vertebrate species" (The Haskell F. Norman Library of Science & Medicine p. 610). The 'Parisians' laid the foundation of our knowledge of comparative anatomy. "No such detailed and exact descriptions and illustrations had been published before" (D.S.B). One plate with tear repaired on verso with no loss of illustration.Nissen ZBI, 3122.

Ascritto all'Ordine dei padri minimi di San Francesco di Paola, Il Frugoni (Genova, 1620 - 1684 circa) studiò in Spagna agli atenei di Alcalà e di Salamanca.

"E' stato definito un "rappresentante tipico della mondanità in veste fratesca, della più strabiliante virtuosità barocca nell'eloquenza, nel romanzo, nella critica, nel teatro" (Sofia Armanini). La "Candia angustiata", qui in rarissima edizione originale, è un poema epico, e fu presentata al Senato della Serenissima il 6 maggio del 1669. > "Biblioteca volante di Giovanni Cinelli Calvoli", 353.

Tedeschi, 5 incisioni in legno nel testo raffiguranti diagrammi ed esperimenti di ottica; legatura settecentesca in mezza pelle, tassello con titolo in oro e filetti in oro al dorso (minimi restauri). Buon esemplare. Prima edizione del più importante contributo di Benedetto Castelli agli studi di ottica; l'edizione include inoltre due lettere inedite a Galileo (27 giugno 1637 e 2 agosto 1638, pp. 47 - 79) nelle quali l'autore discute del calore, sulla base dei propri esperimenti sull'assorbimento e la trasmissione di calore da parte di oggetti bianchi e neri: ?more celebrated is Castelli's discussion of heat in a series of letters to Galileo (1637 - 1638) and particularly his experiments with the absorption of radiant and transmitted heat by black and white objects... [In these two letters] the pursuit of experimental science is even more clearly described than in Galileo's work on bodies in water? (DSB). Nel trattato, alle pp. 1 - 37, Castelli si occupa della percezione del movimento, di illusioni ottiche, dell'uso di lenti specifiche nei telescopi, della camera oscura: "Castelli optical investigations were continued in a treatise sent to Giovanni Ciampoli in 1639 and published posthumously in 1669 [pp. 1 - 37]; with four interesting woodcuts. Included are many observations and conclusions with respect to the persistence of optical images, by which Castelli explained the perception of motion, the illusion of forked tongues in serpents, and other phenomena. In the same treatise he recommended the … [Click Below for Full Description]

Nieuhof, Johannes, 1618-1672. Translated by John Ogilby.
Printed by John Macock for the Author, London 1669 - First English edition. Folio. Three quarter leather binding over marbled boards. Gift inscription in Swedish to first free end paper dated 1920 in pen. Very good. 18, 106, 327 (page skip from 184 to 205) Pages. Full page Frontispiece, Red and black lettered title page, 1 double page engraved map of China, 1 double page engraved map of Canton, 17 full page engravings, 121 engravings within the text. This is the first English edition translated from the Dutch edition of 1665 and expanded. An Embassy from the East-India Company of the United Provinces, translated into English by the bookseller John Ogilby in 1669, is one of the earliest European attempts at an accurate description of China and the Chinese people. Due to its isolation under the Ming dynasty, earlier descriptions of China relied on fanciful tales and legends, many originating from ancient and medieval texts. The book consists of both an account of an embassy of the Dutch East India Company to the Shunzhi Emperor (1638-1661) and an account of general Chinese customs and occupations. The information was gathered and collated by Johan Nieuhof, one of the party which visited the Emperor in Beijing. His first-hand account therefore, allowed accurate descriptions and depictions of Chinese architecture, clothing and landscapes. The book was immensely popular in Europe, and was translated into many languages besides English and was influential in the introduction and proliferation of the 'chinoiserie' style in European art throughout eighteenth century. This style man … [Click Below for Full Description]

STENO, Nicolaus.
- Engraved arms of the Grand Duke of Tuscany on title, a large folding engraved plate, & a folding sheet with descriptive letterpress. Title in red & black. 1 p.l., 78 pp., 1 leaf. 4to, modern panelled calf. Florence: ex Typographia sub signo Stellae, 1669. First edition of a fundamental work for the modern sciences of geology, crystallography, and palaeontology. In this book, Steno "described the composition of the earth’s crust in Tuscany and a famous diagram in his book shows six successive types of stratification: the first attempt ever made to represent geological sections. This was a sequence which he believed would be found all over the world. He explained the true origin of fossils found in the earth as being remains of once living things and he discriminated between the volcanic, chemical and mechanical modes of the origin of the rocks. He was the first clearly to recognize that the strata of the earth’s crust contain the records of a chronological sequence of events from which the history of the earth can be reconstructed. He attempted to find the principles of stratigraphy He deduced that these changes in the original position of the strata are the real causes of the unevenness of the earth’s surface. This was in direct contradiction to the accepted belief that mountains had existed ever since the beginning of things or had simply grown."–Printing & the Mind of Man 151. "This work also contains the first formulated crystallography and, of the constancy of interfacial angles of crystals of quartz, a study basic to mineralogy."–Dibner, Hera … [Click Below for Full Description]
