HURET, Gregoire.
Paris: chez l'autheur, 1670. Folio (373 × 253 mm). Contemporary mottled calf skilfully repaired, red speckled edges. A very good copy. Engraved allegorical plate by Huret, 8 folding diagrammatic plates. First edition, with an appealing near-contemporary French provenance: bookplate and ownership inscription of Hieronimus (Jérôme) Beausire. The Beausires were a famous French architectural dynasty - our Beausire may be Jérôme (1708-1761) architect and son of Jean Beausire, chief of public works in Paris under the Sun King and Louis XV. "The draughtsman and engraver Grégoire Huret (1610-1670) - an academician who was also close to the king - took over Bosse's lectures at the Royal Academy of Painting and Sculpture. In 1670, Huret published Optique de portraiture et peinture (Optics of portraying and painting) in which he expressed great concern about the state of the art, particularly criticising Bosse's book from 1665 [On the practices of geometrical planes and perspectives] and previous publications. Huret claimed that his book should be seen as a contribution to the education of the young, especially to teaching them useful rules for drawing perspective. Huret was well read and discussed books on other subjects than perspective. Naturally enough these included general works on painting, but also Desargues's and Pascal's works on projective geometry. Among the more productive passages in Huret's book one can find a presentation of the construction and use of an angle scale. He also dealt with a point most authors avoided, namely the use of scaled lengths in perspective const … [Click Below for Full Description]

Garmann Christian Friedrich
Christiani Kirchneri - Joh. Gabr. Güttneri, 1670. In-4° (200x150mm), pp. (18), 112, (8) di indice, legatura coeva p. pergamena rigida con titolo e fregio manoscritti in antico al dorso. Vignetta xilografica con teschio al frontespizio. Testatine, capilettera e finaletti ornati o istoriati in xilografia. Dedicatorie, versi latini preliminari di vari autori a lode dell'autore ed errata in principio. Antiche note di possesso. Diffuse bruniture, tipiche dei libri tedeschi del secolo barocco ma buon esemplare. Prima edizione questo raro e significativo trattato fisico-medico sui fenomeni che si accompagnano alla morte e al processo di decomposizione, ricco di dissertazioni in merito: "De capillorum augmento", "De cadaveribus sonantibus", "De faciei mutatione in cadaveribus", "Dentium singularia", "De cordis augmento et in igne duratione", "De abdominis crepatura", "De penis in cadavere erectione", "De maculis cadaverium", "De cadaverum contagio", etc. L'opera è uno dei primissimi testi organicamente dedicati alla medicina legale ed è uno tra i testi fondanti della moderna tanatologia e pare, a detta di taluni studiosi, che avesse influenzato perfino Mary Shelley per la stesura di "Frankenstein" (anche se non sempre le sue osservazioni erano suffragate dal dovuto rigore scientifico); la presente edizione originale comprende la sola prima parte, poi ampliata notevolmente nelle successive ristampe. "L'auteur ne laisse échapper aucune occasion de déclamer contre l'Eglise Romaine, en lui attribuant toutes les superstitions et croyances populaires relatives aux reliques vraies ou faus … [Click Below for Full Description]

TOMASI, TH.
In Monte Chiaro, Appresso Gio. Batt. Lucio Vero (Amsterdam, J. Blaeu), 1670. Two parts in one volume. (48), 335, (1) pp.; (24), 359, (1) pp. 12mo. Contemporary vellum, handwritten title to spine. Vinciana 666 & 667 for the 1655 (first) edition and the 1671 edition; Melzi, iii, p. 233. Second Italian edition and very rare: one usually finds the third edition printed by Blaeu in 1671. An important and rare biography on the prince and condottiero Cesare Borgia, who was named Duke of Valentinois by the French King Louis XII, and this title along with his former position as Cardinal of Valencia explains the nickname "Valentino".Cesare Borgia was greatly admired by Niccolò Machiavelli, who met the Duke on a diplomatic mission in his function as Secretary of the Florentine Chancellery. Machiavelli was at Borgia's court from October 7, 1502 through January 18, 1503. During this time he wrote regular dispatches to his superiors in Florence, many of which have survived and are published in Machiavelli's Collected Works. Machiavelli used many of Borgia's exploits and tactics as examples in The Prince and advised politicians to imitate Borgia. Two episodes were particularly impressive to Machiavelli: the method by which Borgia pacified the Romagna, which Machiavelli describes in chapter VII of The Prince, and Borgia's assassination of his captains on New Year's Eve of 1503 in Senigallia.Upon its first publication, in 1655, the book was almost immediately forbidden and circulated in manuscript versions.The letters G.L. in the title refer to Gregori Leti and in fact Leti has been conside … [Click Below for Full Description]

London: Printed by H.L. & R.B. for T. Basset, 1670. First edition and a fine and large copy of the standard 17th-century English work on mining, valuable for giving an account of the state of mining in England during the period. The glossary at the end is the first attempt in English at a dictionary of mining terms. The fine portrait, here in the second state (signed "W. Sherwin sculpsit"), shows Pettus aged 57. Pettus (1613-90), was the deputy governor of the royal mines in England and Wales. ❧ Duveen, p. 468. Hoover 634.

Epicurus.
H. Herringman at the Blew Anchor, 1670. A beautiful example of => a somber binding by one of the Queens' Binders encases this third edition of => the first translation into English of Epicurus's Morals, first published in 1656. Probably the Queens' Binder B, arguably the best artisan of four Restoration binders employed by Catherine of Braganza and Mary of Modena, fashioned this elegant blind-tooled black morocco binding, each board bearing the B binder's distinctive all-over design of "four-petalled conventional flower[s] springing from a pair of leaves" (Nixon, p. 100), framed by drawer handle motifs, acorns, grapes, and pointellé decoration. The spine is blind-tooled with raised bands and the title gilt on a red leather label; the endpapers are marbled and the edges black (faded). The text is printed in roman and italic, ruled in red throughout, with sidenotes inset within the red ruled border. An => engraved portrait of Epicurus faces the title-page. The translator, Walter Charleton (1620-1707), was named physician-in-ordinary to Charles I shortly after graduating from Oxford, and published numerous books on natural philosophy as well as physiology and antiquity. To the various writings by the philosopher Epicurus (341-270) included herein, Charleton added an Apology for Epicurus, building a Christian framework for the following chapters. Provenance: A later pencil inscription on the front free endpaper indicates this book may have once been in the library at => Dyrham Park, a 17th-century English mansion now overseen by the National Trust.

Bien que le titre porte "Seconde édition", c'est ici un premier état de la troisième (imprimée en 1671), la véritable seconde édition (en 358 pp. mal chiffrées 334) ne portant pas de mention sur le titre. Il ne s'agit pas d'une contrefaçon comme l'indique Tchemerzine, mais bien d'une édition officielle, sortie des presses de Guillaume Desprez dont on reconnait le matériel typographique.

Borelli, Giovanni Alfonso
Domenico Antonio Ferro, 1670. Small 4° (193x145 mm). [12] (including half title), 162, [1] pp. With the final errata leaf. At the beginning one folding plate viewing Etna eruption of 1669, engraved by Doria. Woodcuts in text. Bound in old vellum, edges sprinkled in red. Pastedowns and endpapers renewed. An excellent copy, slightly toned and soiled the half title. A few, light spotting on scattered leaves, mostly marginal. The rare first edition of the most significant 17th-century study of volcanology, with a fine plate depicting the great 1669 eruption. The work was written by Borelli during his stay in Messina, in behalf of the FlorentineAccademia del Cimento and of the secretary of the London Royal Society, Henry Oldenburg. The treatise offers not only a narrative description of the Etna eruption, but also systematic observations on the morphology of volcanoes, the nature and the causes of volcanic eruptivity, the generation and the structure of lava, disagreeding with the theories developed by Athanasius Kircher in the Mundus Subterraneus, and benefiting from the publication in 1669 of Steno?s De solido intro solidum (see item E). ?Borelli presented his own highly sophisticated understanding of a volcanic eruption as a geographical phenomenon which could be studied physically, chemically, and mathematically. His account of Etna?s most recent eruption explicitly critiqued a central argumeny put forth by the Jesuit Kircher in the Subterranean World. Using evidence from Etna?s lava flow and chancing morphology, Borelli negated the idea of eternal mountains and perpetual su … [Click Below for Full Description]

Longhi, Gioseffo.
1670. 1065 x 578 mm. Cloth-backed engraved view on 2 sheets joined, letterpress text pasted below (4 columns in Italian: "Descrizione della Città di Alessandria d'Egitto") with publisher's imprint. Matted. Unrecorded in the standard bibliographies and without counterpart in western libraries: a unique, large-scale view of Alexandria as seen from the north. Formerly the most powerful city of the ancient world after Rome, Alexandria came under Ottoman rule in 1517 and subsequently lost much of its importance to the new port of Rashid (Rosette), 40 miles east, though it would regain some of its former prominence with the construction of the Mahmoudiyah Canal in 1807. In Longhi's engraving, the Ottoman influence may be discerned in the people's clothing as well as in the city's architecture. Within the city are several mosques; the ancient obelisks are shown crowned with crescents. On the river Nile, which flows through the city and underneath the walls, the view depicts numerous trade boats and sailors. Outside the walls lies Pompey's Pillar. The Italian letterpress text pasted under the engraving provides mostly historical and geographical information. - Longhi's panorama seems to draw various aspects from previous works to create its own original representation of the Egyptian city. The perspective is similar to that used in Pierre Belon's 1553 "Observations" and in Braun and Hogenberg's 1575 "Alexandria, Vetustissimum Aegypti Emporium, Amplissima Civitas", published in their famous "Civitates orbis terrarum", but also to that in Mallet's smaller, almost certainly later (168 … [Click Below for Full Description]
