Kerckring, Thomas Theodor
Andreas Fris, Amstelodami, 1670. Quarto. Two parts in one, as issued. General engraved title page, title and divisional title page with vignettes by Abraham Bloeteling, 39 numbered engravings, nine of which comprise large multi-folding plates extending nearly twice the height of the book. As well, 30 illustrations in text (11 are full-page). Contemporary vellum with ink label on spine, owner's inscription front pastedown dated 1820. Scarce FIRST EDITION of Kerckring's classic "Anatomical Gleaning," providing over 100 observations on various unusual topics in illustrative anatomy. The superb engraved title by Bloteling shows a female dissector in classic dress, an unusual picturing, since very few (if any) women were allowed to participate in this profession in the 17th Century. Kerckring was the first to describe 'Kerckring's Ossicle,' an ossification in the occipital bone. Covers soiled, a remarkably preserved copy in original or contemporary binding. All plates as well as folding plates in near fine condition, occasional small tears, brown-toning and spotting. A most well-preserved copy of this important early treatise on human anatomy. Garrison-Morton, 383; Heirs of Hippocrates, 632; NLM/Krivatsy, 6346; Norman, 1209; Roberts & Tomlinson, p. 300-303.

Bacon, Francis
London: William Lee, [1670]. Small folio (11 ¼ x7 ½ ), modern calf spine and corners and marbled boards, morocco lettering piece, engraved title page from 1676 edition inserted, [2], 12, 2, 14, 215, [23], 221-228, [11], 64, 31 pp. Lacking original engraved frontispiece title but one from later edition inserted (some tears and chips along edges), additional original title present, light wear to edges, faint dampstain, and light foxing; otherwise very good. This is an interesting collection of the miscellaneous scientific writings and experiments of Francis Bacon (1561-1626), appended with his utopian work "A New Atlantis." The book first appeared the year after his death, edited and published by William Rawley, but went through a number of editions reflecting the popularity of his writings. While Bacon would be well educated in his early years, as the youngest son in his family, he would be left without land, money or position upon his father's death in 1579. However, thanks to his tremendous intellect and political skills, he would have a very successful political and intellectual career, and would prosper under James I. Among his many accomplishments would be obtaining the post of attorney general, but bribery charges would bar him from ever holding public office again. He would publish a good deal in his later years, and legend suggests that his intellectual curiosity would eventually cost him his life, when he caught chill after experimenting with the impact of cold temperatures on decaying meat. More recently, it has been suggested that his death was caused by "inhali … [Click Below for Full Description]

Robert created a vast, exquisite body of work for the French Crown. Along with other artists, Robert was commissioned by Gaston d'Orleans, brother of Louis XIII, to create watercolors of the rare plants and exotic birds he had assembled in his garden at Blois and the Ménagerie at Versailles. Robert's talent was recognized quickly as being superior to that of other artists working for the royal family, and after Gaston d'Orleans's death, he was quickly placed under the patronage of the Sun King, Louis XIV. As a reward for the stunning works he painted for the king's personal collection, Robert was named "Peintre Ordinaire du Roi" in 1666, a title that confirmed his continuing fame and patronage. Robert was the first significant contributor to a collection of fine watercolors on vellum that became known, collectively, as the Velins du Roi (the King's Vellums).

In 4to antico, cc. 4 b., antip. su due pp. incise a p. p. con ritratto dell'A. e scena allegorica, (con incisione di R. de Hooghe), front. in rosso/nero con impresa tipografica incisa su legno (un astrolabio affiancato da due figure allegoriche), pp. 2 n. n. con la dedica a stampa di Grozio a re Ludovico XIII, pp. XVIII, 620, 96 n. n. di indici + 8 con il "Commentatio in epistolam Pauli Apostoli ad Philemonem" (uno scritto teologico del Grozio); + il De Mari Libero, cc. 1 (l'occhietto), pp. (4), 28 + 1 con 'indice dei capitoli, 4 cc. b., capilettera ornati, leg. coeva in p. perg. rigida con titolo ms. al dorso, tagli in blu. Bella ristampa di Amsterdam del capolavoro di Grozio, opera fondante del giusnaturalismo moderno. Il "De Jure Belli ac Pacis" fu steso da Grozio nel periodo del suo esilio parigino e dato alle stampe nel 1625 per i tipi di Nicolas Buon. In una serrata indagine sui fondamenti dell'autorit? statale, Grozio confuta le basi teologiche della stessa e, in un' epoca lacerata dalle guerre di religione, cerca invece di porla su principi razionali e naturali. Il diritto pubblico, nella sistematizzazione di Grozio, diventa una scienza deduttiva simile alla matematica; lo stato di natura, con l'associazione tra individui fondata sulle mere leggi naturali, precede sempre e comunque lo stato politico, che, tuttavia, nel suo costituirsi, deve ispirarsi al modello naturale rispettandone le leggi di base. (Cfr. Sapori, 1465). Esemplare fascinoso, in perfetto stato di conservazione. ? 600.

BILLY, Jacques de. [Fermat].
Rare first edition of this work on the indeterminate problems of Diophantus' Arithmetica. Billy corresponded actively with Fermat on number theory, and it is mainly through his collection of letters from Fermat, published as 'Doctrinae Analyticae Inventum Novum' in the 1670 edition of Bachet's Diophantus, that we know of Fermat's methods for solving Diophantine equations. This work, published a decade before the 'Inventum Novum', also deals with Diophantine problems, in which both arithmetical and geometrical solutions are given. The second part is devoted to 59 algebraic problems that are not found in Diophantus. <br/><br/> "From 1631 to 1633 Billy taught mathematics at the Jesuit college at Rheims. He became a close friend of Bachet, who was one of his pupils at Rheims. After this Billy taught in Grenoble and then was rector of a number of Jesuit Colleges in Chalons, Langres and in Sens. From 1665 to 1668 he was professor of mathematics at the College of Dijon. One of his pupils in Dijon was Ozanam but this was before he was appointed to the chair of mathematics so, since there were no formal mathematics classes at the College, he taught Ozanam privately. Billy corresponded with Fermat and produced a number of results in number theory which have been named after him. Billy had collected many problems from Fermat's letters and, after the death of his father, Fermat's son appended de Billy's collection under the title Doctrinae analyticae inventum novum (New discovery in the art of analysis) as an annex to his edition of the Arithmetica of Diophantus (1670).

ARENA, Antoine de (ca. 1500-ca. 1544).
[Paris?]: "Stampatus in Stampatura Stampatorum,", 1670. 12mo (142 x 80 mm). 191 pp. Two parts, separately titled but continuously paginated. Woodcut peacock device on title. A pretty copy; occasional light foxing to upper margins. Eighteenth-century French red morocco, sides with triple gilt fillet, smooth spine gold-tooled with green morocco lettering-piece, edges gilt over marbling, marbled endpapers (edges slightly scuffed). Provenance: Marquis de Rognes, engraved armorial bookplate, signed Nicolas de Mire, 1777.*** Most complete edition of one of the earliest collections of French macaronic poetry (an often burlesque admixture of the vernacular and Latin), celebrated for its valuable descriptions of and notations of early Provençal dance. The preface from the supposed publisher ("Librarius") is addressed to the "bragardissimis" dancers of France: bragare, in Arena's personal brand of Latin, means to "have fun," but Arena's work, addressed to students, was intended to meet a (semi-) serious need: To attract students to the University of Aix, less popular than the faculties of Avignon and Montpellier, the rector had decided to authorize a ball at the time of graduation for the graduates and their families, but "for certain students, dancing in public was a much more forbidding test than all of those that they had undergone during their studies" (Louisson-Lassablière, p. 268, our translation). Thus Arena's goal was to familiarize students with the many different "basses danses" currently in fashion. Following a prose introduction to the subject, the poem, in 1896 lines, is … [Click Below for Full Description]

(Notas a esta segunda parte de la Historia de la vida de la Madre de Dios. / hizolas el R.P. Fray Juan Sendin Calderon.). Texto con apostillas marginales. Enc. de época en pergamino con título en lomo, deslucido. Señal de taladro en el margen inferior de la pág. 759 a la 850, sin afectar el texto. Motas de óxido aleatorias. Papel algo tostado. Error tipográfico de paginación en la 760, que figura 560. Marca de caucho en la portada. * Esta edición es del mismo año que la primera, pero con la diferencia que no tiene preliminares ni aprobación. Ofrecemos la segunda parte, la cual Palau (3205) dice no haber visto nunca. Aparece con el curioso error tipográfico de la portada, en que figuraba Primera parte, con la corrección de la época en un papel sobrepuesto sobre la palabra "Primera". La Mística Ciudad de Dios, póstumo y controvertido trabajo, fue popularísimo en su tiempo. Esta obra es una extrema biografía de la Virgen que acentúa los misterios de la Inmaculada. Mezcla lo teológico y lo literario, lo devoto y aún lo novelesco, la historia bíblica y la fantasía misticista, dentro del barroquismo propio de la época. Fue redactada dos veces, pues su autora quemó la primera redacción. Aparece precisamente cuando arde en España y en todo el orbe católico una enconada disputa sobre el dogma de la Concepción. Se delata, tildándose a su autora de "escotista", a la Inquisición, la cual teme que el entusiasmo popular ante esta … [Click Below for Full Description]
