VALERIUS MAXIMUS.
Lugd. Batavorum, Ex Officina Hackiana, 1670. 8vo, 180 x 113 mms., pp. [xvi], 844 [845 - 876 Index], including engraved title-page. BOUND WITH: Cornelius Nepotis. Vitae Excellentium Imperatorum, Observationibus ac Notis variorum Uberioribus illustratae, Accurante, Roberto Keuchenio Icto et Historiarum Professore. Lugd. Vatav. et Roterod. Ex Officiana Hackiana 1667. 8v9,m 180 x 113 mms., pp. [xxiv], 377 [378 - 392 Index, including engraved title-page. 2 volumes in 1, bound in contemporary vellum, with yapp edges, with the autograph "Wilhelm von Samson/ Bevall 1800" on the verso of the front free end-paper; spine a little soiled, but a very good copy. The anecdotes and memorable sayings of the rhetorician Valerius (fl. 14AD - 57AD) were popular with later orators and historains; the earliest publication of his works was in Mainz in 1471; the editor, Antoine Thysius (1603 - 1665) was the son of the Dutch theologian of the same name (1556 - 1640) and professor of poetry at the University of Harderwijk. Cornelius Nepos' lives of roman generals was a popular work, and this edition by Robertus Keuchenius (1636 - 1673) is one of many works by him. Dirk Van Miert, in Humanism in an Age of Science: The Amsterdam Athenaeum in the Golden Age (2009) amusingly notes "One has the impression that the ambitions of Robertus Keuchenius...were successful only because he knew how to network. in 1660 he dedicated a hymn to Professor Klenckius to congratulate him on his knighthood. He also addressed a congratulatory poem (1660) to recently re-crowned King Charles II of England." … [Click Below for Full Description]

NICERON, Jean Francois.
First edition, with a fine provenance, of Niceron's important treatise on perspective and anamorphic projection, which gains added significance in the history of science for containing "perhaps the first published reference to Descartes' derivation of the law of refraction" (DSB). "The classic phase of anamorphosis, during which it came to relate vitally to a series of scientific and theological concerns, occurred in France and Rome in the 1630s and 1640s. The theorist at the centre of the Paris-Rome developments was Jean-François Niceron" (Kemp).<br/><br/> Provenance: Gilles Allou (1670-1751), French painter (signature on front fly-leaf). Allou was elected to the <i>Acadcmie Royale de Peinture et de Sculpture</i> in 1711. One of his works is <i>L'Optique, or Portrait of Madame Allou drawing an Anamorphic</i>. <br/><br/> Niceron was "sympathetic to the natural magic still current at his time... [and] tended to view optics as the art of illusion rather than the science of light" (DSB). This attitude is reflected in the title of the work, the 'marvellous effects' being anamorphoses. Niceron tells us in the preface (p. 4) that his original intention had been to devote the entire work to anamorphoses, but he also wished to connect the geometric understanding of anamorphoses to the theory of perspective. Having been disappointed with the existing works on perspective, and especially with their failure to show how to construct perspective images of the Platonic bodies - objects that since Antiquity have been connected to the wonders of science and creation - he decide to begin hi … [Click Below for Full Description]

VEGA, Garcilaso de la (1539-1616)
- Paris: Gervais Clovzier, 1670. 2 volumes, 12mo. (5 3/4 x 3 1/2 inches). [12], 452; [12], 414 pp. Contemporary vellum, manuscript title on spine. First edition in French of the foundation work on the De Soto Expedition. One of the basic works on the De Soto Expedition, written by the half Spanish-half Peruvian historian of the New World Garcilaso de la Vega ("El Inca"), the first distinguished man of letters to be born there. De Soto, one of the most famous of the conquistadors, landed in Florida, near Tampa Bay, in the spring of 1539. He explored northward, attacking and enslaving local Indians until retalitory strikes made his progress a running battle. In 1540 the expedition moved north and then west, crossing present-day Georgia, through central South Carolina and into western North Carolina. From here he crossed northern Alabama and Mississippi, where several major Indian attacks deprived the expedition of much of its equipment. In the spring of 1541 he crossed the Mississippi, and spent all of that year in present-day Arkansas. De Soto died the following year and was buried in the Mississippi to conceal his loss from the Indians; the survivors of the expedition rafted down the river and managed to sail small boats to Mexico. The De Soto expedition is thus the first major European exploration of much of the Southeast United States, as well as Arkansas. "This is a contemporary narrative of Hernando de Soto's Conquest of Florida, and the second to be published [following that of the Gentleman of Elvas]. The work is based upon the relations of eye- witnesses and was writ … [Click Below for Full Description]

Manuscript; de Nagy, Nicholaum Appony, Compiler.
1670. Seventeenth-Century Hungarian Manuscript Compiled by a Law Student Preparing for His Final Examination [Manuscript]. De Nagy, Nicholaum Appony, Compiler. Pia Mentins Exercetia. [Probably Hungary, c. 1670]. 479 pp. Quarto (8" x 6-1/4"). Contemporary vellum (cut from an antiphonal), fragments of thong ties. Some soiling and edgewear, boards slightly bowed, crack to center of spine near foot, vellum beginning to crack through rear pastedown, front hinge starting, rear hinge partially cracked. Light toning to interior, early inscriptions and signature to front pastedown, text in Latin, written in a fine secretarial hand. $2,000. * Probably compiled in Hungary, this is a reference work for Hungarian law students during the patvaria (or patvaristak), a two-year training period for that preceded final examinations and admission to practice. It has a number of additional annotations to the endleaves and text. The pastedown is inscribed with an early owner's name, "Ioannes," above the Latin motto "Sors Bona Nil Aliud' (Good Luck, Nothing Else). The rear pastedown has the motto, "dat Galenus opes, dat Justinianus honores, solus Aristoteles cogitur ire pedes," which is based on the quote by Robert Burton [1577-1640]: "Galen gives wealth, Justinian honors, but Moses must go on foot with a beggar's wallet." Our scribe, who seems to have been familiar with Burton, substitutes Aristotle for Moses. Nicholaas Appony de Nagy was a member of a noble Hungarian family.

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]
