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]

CARPZOV BENEDICTUS
Wittebergae, sumptibus haeredum D. Tobiae Mevii, 1670. Tre parti in un volume di cm. 33,5, pp. (12) 343 (1); (12) 435 (1); (12) 406 (102). Con ritratto dell'A. e bellissima antiporta (che riporta la data 1652 come tutte le edizioni stampate a Wittenberg tra il 1652 e il 1670) incisi finemente in rame f.t.; frontespizio in rosso e nero. Bella legatura coeva in piena pergamena con traccia titoli ms. al dorso e piccole unghie; tagli rossi. Trascurabili bruniture. Esemplare fresco e ben conservato. Benedikt Carpzov (1595-1666), fu giurista pratico di enorme fama; ricoprì numerose cariche pubbliche ed insegnò a Lipsia. Quest'opera gli garantì una straordinaria circolazione dottrinale in tutta Europa e pone luce sulla giurisdizione di diritto comune e criminale sassone. Così commenta Wieacker (in Storia del diritto privato moderno, Milano, 1980, p. 327): " La reale importanza di Carpzov sta nel suo essere stato il rappresentante più tipico dello stile scientifico della sua epoca: con la sua infaticabile diligenza di ricercatore, la sua straordinaria esperienza di operatore pratico e la puntuale lucidità dei suoi giudizi; egli fu un maestro nell'offrire delle sintesi conclusive di tutto un travaglio di elaborazione scientifica, un maestro come sempre sogliono esserci quando si chiude un'epoca particolarmente significativa (si pensi, in momenti tra loro diversissimi, ad Ulpiano ad Accursio al WIndscheid). Alla storia spirituale del suo tempo il Carpzov appartiene, non tanto come rielaboratore della prassi giudiziaria e come sistematico o come storico, ma proprio per il modo caratte … [Click Below for Full Description]

(1670-1699) König wurde, drängte er darauf, die so genannte "Gottorfer Frage" zu lösen. 1682 zog er die schleswigschen Besitzungen der Gottorfer ein und besetzte die holsteinischen. Der folgende Versuch König Christians, seinen Einfluß auf Hamburg auszudehnen, rief ein antidänische Allianz auf den Plan. Christian mußte aufgeben, Hamburg in Ruhe lassen und wurde zudem gezwungen, 1689 die alten Rechte der Gottorfer wieder herzustellen.- Leicht gebräunt, tls. leicht wasserrandig.

Abschnitten, Fronti. m. keliner Fehlstelle, Titelblatt mit Fleck und kleiner Fehlstelle (hinterlegt). Titelkupfer von R. de Hooghe. Am Textende eine Holzschnitt-Vignette: Kleiner Engel mit Noten in der Hand. Dahürebr Spruchband: «Musica discurae est».Diese Ausgabe zweisprachig Griechisch - Latein.- Epiktet (ca. 50-138) selbst hat keine Schriften verfasst. Bereits zu seinen Lebzeiten war jedoch sein mündlicher Unterricht sehr einflussreich. Die wichtigste Quelle für Epiktets Lehre stellt eine Sammlung von Lehrgesprächen dar, die sein Schüler Arrian, der vor allem als bedeutender Alexanderhistoriker bekannt ist, aus seinen Notizen zu Epiktets Vorlesungen in der griechischen Umgangssprache der Zeit als Handbuch zusammenstellte.Seine Lehre behandelt vor allem ethische Fragen und stellt die praktische Umsetzung philosophischer Überlegungen in den Vordergrund. Im Zentrum seiner Ethik stehen die innere Freiheit und moralische Autonomie eines jeden Menschen. Epiktet trennt strikt zwischen Dingen und Zuständen, die sich außerhalb der menschlichen Macht befinden und daher als gegeben angenommen werden müssen, und solchen, die das Innerste des Menschen betreffen und daher ausschließlich Gegenstand seines Einflusses sind. Außerdem entwickelt Epiktet ein Konzept der sittlichen Persönlichkeit, die nach seiner Ansicht das Wesen des Menschen darstellt. Menschliches Handeln wird für ihn aber stets auch von Gott bestimmt und gelenkt, der in jedem einzelnen Menschen, der Welt un … [Click Below for Full Description]

BORELLI, Giovanni Alfonso.
Bologna: Dominici Ferri, 1670. First edition. A fine copy of one of the most important early treatises on fluid mechanics. In this work Borelli "argues against positive levity, discusses the Torricellian experiment, takes up siphons, pumps, and the nature of fluidity, tries to understand the expansion of water while freezing, and deals with fermentation and other chemical processes" (DSB). "This work is important as the first treatise on capillarity, and for containing important investigations on the action of capillary tubes, in which the author, inter alia, formulates the law that the height of the ascent of liquids in capillary tubes is inversely proportional to their diameters. His investigations also led him to the conclusion that the phenomenon of capillarity is independent of the pressure of air" (Zeitlinger in Sotheran, First supplement, 3060). "[De motionibus naturalibus] was well known among Borelli's contemporaries and is quoted by Varignon in his Projet d'une nouvelle mechanique. It is reviewed in the first volume of Philosophical Transactions Abridged, where it is praised for its thoroughness, for the discussion of Torricelli's experiments and for Borelli's stand against Descartes on the nature of fluidity" (Roberts & Trent). Borelli regarded this work, together with his De vi percussionis (1667), as necessary preparation for his masterpiece, De motum animalium (1680-81), on which he had worked since the early 1660s. The work appeared in three subsequent editions, testifying to its influence. "While On the Force of Percussion laid out some foundational proposit … [Click Below for Full Description]

1670. Catchpenny print showing the life of Jan de Wasser who takes over the household chores of his wife, such as cooking, cleaning and taking care of the children. His story was one of the most popular subjects depicted in children’s prints, having been printed in many forms and versions by publishers such as De Groot, Van der Putte, Noman, Brepols and Glenisson. Jan de Wasser is primarily known as the man who takes on women’s work, but he also was the typical example of a henpecked husband.The stories of Jan and Griet go back to the theme of the fight for the trousers (‘Strijd om de broek’), where the woman changes her skirt and apron for her husband’s trousers. The topic of Women’s power over men (‘Weibermacht’) has been a popular topic in visual art since the 13th century, having been depicted by artists like Israhel van Meckenem and Lucas van Leyden. Probably, seventeenth-century farces such as Cornelis de Bie’s Jan Goethals en Griet syn wyf from 1670 led to the Jan-de-Wasser story taking its definitive form. This prints has given the story a twist, presenting Jan de Wasser’s unhappy marriage as a warning for marrying too soon.Deventer, J. de Lange (1818 - 1845); via Mindermann & co., Amsterdam, whose address is mentioned on the print: ‘Te Amsterdam, bij Mindermann en Comp., in de Berstraat (sic)’; numbered ‘N. 6.’ in the upper right corner. 24 woodcut illustrations (each ca. 45 x 57 mm) on paper; hand coloured in orange and yellow; under each image a 2-line verse; total: 425 x 340 mm; Pro Patria watermark; folded three times, worn at the folds and restored on verso wi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Kerckring, Theodor
Amsterdam A Frisius 1670 - Mit gestoch. Titel, 2 gestoch. Titelvignetten und 39 Kupfern im Text und auf 9 Falttafeln. 11 Bll., 280 Seiten. 4°. Lederband der Zeit. Erste Ausgabe. - Ein für die Entwicklungsgeschichte klassisches Werk. - "K. hat sich um die Anatomie, durch die Entdeckung oder wie Andere meinen, erste genaue Beschreibung der nach ihm genannten Valvulae conniventes im Dünndarm und durch den Nachweis der Valvulae venarum wirklich verdient gemacht. Nicht weniger ist dies der Fall mit der Entwicklung der menschlichen Frucht und der dabei stattfindenden Osteogenese, welche beide durch K. genau studirt, beschrieben und abgebildet sind" (Hirsch). "In Kerckring's studies of fetal bone development, contained in the second part of this work, he stated correctly that only a little of the skeleton can be found during the second month, and that the skeleton develops through a transformation of membrane into cartilage into bone. He was also the first to describe 'Kerckring's ossicle', an occasional center of ossification in the occipital bone. The first part of the 'Spicilegium anatomicum' contains Kerckring's description of the 'valvulae conniventes' ('valves of Kerckring') in the small intestine, which had previously been described by Falloppio" (Norman Library 1209). - "Der Druck des Textes ist ebenso gepflegt wie die Tafeln" (Goldschmid, Patholog.-anatom. Abb., S. 45). - Der zweite Teil (Osteogenia foetuum) mit separatem Titel. - Der schöne Kupfertitel zeigt eine ideale, mythologisierende Sektionsszene (ausführl. beschrieben und abgebildet in Wolf-Heidegger und Cetto, Di … [Click Below for Full Description]
