Picard, J [F ]
Paris, Académie des Sciences, 1671. Large folio (51.8 x 37.4 cm). 30 pp., title page with engraved vignette, four engraved plates, one engraved text figure and one leaf with allegorical endpiece. Beautiful contemporary style quarter calf over marbled boards, vellum corners. Spine rich gilt with floral pattern and title. Edges red.= The French astronomer and founding member of the Académie Royale des Sciences, Jean-Felix Picard (1620-1682) was the first person to measure the size of the Earth to a reasonable degree of accuracy in a survey conducted in 1669-70, the results of which are printed here. In fact, he was less than a half percent off, being 25 times more accurate than the previous record of accuracy set by Tycho Brahe: a remarkable effort indeed. To reach this goal, Picard modified and improved his equipment considerably. "In collaboration with Adrien Auzout he perfected the movable-wire micrometer ... During the summer of 1667 he applied the astronomical telescope to the instruments used in making angular measurements" (DSB). His methods and means are clearly represented in this work and the instruments he used are figured in great detail. The French Academy of Sciences emphasized the importance of Picard's work by including it in their first publication. This copy is in the very rare first edition, being an extraordinary large folio edition presented to royals only and not offered for sale. A few spots to one plate, some small old marginal repairs, otherwise a very good, clean copy. DSB X, pp. 595-597. See also Houzeau & Lancaster, p. 2 … [Click Below for Full Description]

KIRCHER, Athanasius.
Apud Joannem Janssonium à Waesberge & heredes Elizei Weyerstraet. Amsterdam, 1671. . 41 cm. Gran folio. Portada calcográfica precede a portada tipográfica. [20], 263 pág., 4 h. de índices (sign. [asterisco]4, 2[asterisco]4, A-Z4, 2A-L4). Pliego ([asterisco]3, inserto entre pág. 156 y 157, que ilustra el plano de Villa Adriani). Capitulares xilográficas. Profus. ilustr. con grabados calcográficos, en el texto, y con 27 lám. también al acero, fuera del texto (quince de ellos plegados, uno de los simples es retrato de Clemente X). Enc. en pergamino, tejuelo, cortes pintados. Ejemplar restaurado. * Muy buen ejemplar de esta excepcional descripción geográfica, histórica y artística del Lacio, de Roma y de sus alrededores, bellamente ilustrada con mapas (uno del Lacio por Innocenty Mattei, de Tuscolo, etc.), planos, vistas de villas. Jan Jansz imprime junto a los herederos de Elizei Weyerstraet. Kircher es conocido por la gran variedad de temas que trató en sus obras (jeroglíficos, ciencias naturales, musicología, historia de China.). Sin embargo, su labor como arqueólogo y topógrafo no ha sido lo suficientemente valorada. En Latium las fuentes históricas y literarias clásicas se unen a la evidencia física en lo que constituye un intento temprano de estudio multidisciplinar. Los espléndidos mapas e ilustraciones que acompañan a la obra, algunos de Romeyn de Hooge, suscitaron un gran interés y Latium se convirtió en la chispa que contagió el interés por la arqueología en la Italia de su tiempo. Brunet III, col. 667. De Backer-Sommervogel IV, col. 1067. Caillet 5777. Graesse IV, p. … [Click Below for Full Description]

Montpelier, Daniel Pech, 1671 [1672]. Small 8vo (15.7 x 9.8 cm). [x], 360, 10 (explanatory leaves), [xxxii] pp. Engraved (armorial) frontispiece, 14 engraved plates on 12 large, folded leaves, one being a table of chemical symbols. Contemporary full calf. Spine with five raised bands, rich gilt compartments with floral vignettes and gilt title. Edges mottled red. "Extremely rare" (Neville) complete copy, with all the plates, of a groundbreaking work on distillation by the self-taught French chemist Sébastien Matte La Faveur (1626-1714). According to Wikipedia, his discovery of styptic water and other important research merited him the position of Demonstrator of Chemistry at the Faculty of Medicine of Montpellier, a position created for him in 1675. He was the inventor of a lavender distillate, "the water of the Queen of Hungary", which became very popular in European courts. Perhaps as a consequence he became the private pharmacist of King Louis XIV and was awarded the privilege of teaching chemistry at the Sorbonne, and at the University of Montpellier. Later he became intendant of the chair of chemistry at the Jardin du Roi (1680 to 1684). This book is his most important work. Daniel Pech was perhaps merely the printer; the title page states that the work was sold by Matte La Faveur. Although the title page is dated 1671, the final print date is stated to be "le premier Fevrier 1672". The explanatory leaves are numbered 1-10, of which 1-2 have been moved to the first folded plate, between pp. 46-47. The first folded leaf contains the first three plates, a fact not noted … [Click Below for Full Description]

[French Colonies in America]:
[Paris. nd, but 1671].. 3pp. Quarto, on a folded folio sheet. Some light foxing. Contemporary inscription. Very good. In an attempt to encourage the commerce of the early French colonies in the West Indies, this act declares that no export duty is to be charged on goods shipped to America, so long as the merchants bring back within six months certificates showing that these have been landed in America. The certificates are to be signed by the "Sieur Pelissier, l'un des Fermiers de Sa Majeste, ou du Sieur du Ruau Palu, Agent de la Compagnie de Indes Occidentales." This is a variant of Wroth 132, of which only one copy is known. OCLC locates just one copy, at the University of Oxford. Rare. From the library of Cardinal Étienne Charles de Loménie de Brienne (1727-94), Minister of Louis XVI, Archbishop of Toulouse and of Sens. A friend of Voltaire and a member of the Académie Française, Brienne wielded significant power as as head of the Finance Ministry, which earned him many enemies. He died in prison during the French Revolution, despite having renounced Catholicism in 1793 (presumably as an attempt to save his life). WROTH, ACTS OF FRENCH ROYAL ADMINISTRATION 132 (ref).

Ldr. der Zeit mit Rückenvergoldung und Rückenschild (etw. beschabt und bestoßen).. Erste lateinische Ausgabe dieser erstmals 1668 auf Italienisch erschienen Klassikers der Entomologie, so komplett. - Vgl. DSB XI, 341: "Redi's masterpiece is considered to be 'Esperienze ...' (1668), in which he disproved the doctrine of spontaneous generation in insects, inherited from Aristotle and still considered dogma. The microscope revealed in insects an organisation as marvelous as it was unsuspected". - "1668 veröffentlicht er sein wissenschaftliches Meisterstück 'Experimente über den Ursprung von Insekten', ein Meilenstein in der Geschichte der modernen Wissenschaft. In diesem Werk setzt Francesco Redi sich von der traditionellen Forschung ab, indem er die Abiogenese, die These von der Urzeugung zu widerlegen sucht und führt eine neue experimentelle Methode ein" (www.francesco-redi.de). - Leicht gebräunt und fleckig.

PHILIPPS, Fabian
London: Printed for Christopher Wilkinson 1671.. Second edition, 8vo, (lxxii), 134, 137-452 pp. Inscribed from the Author on a front blank "Ex Dono Authoris. June 3d. 1671" with a later inscription below, and with manuscript corrections to several leaves, one leaf with soiling to the outer edge. Modern half calf, maroon spine label. A staunch Royalist, Philipps wrote widely on legal matters as well as publishing a pamphlet in support of Charles I two days before the latter's execution. Often, as here, he argued for the retention of the status quo in the face of proposed reforms. Wing P2015. First published in 1662. Containing all the cancels mentioned by ESTC. The corrections include several phrases inserted as well as more simple changes. The first edition's title is suffixed "written in the year 1656 when Oliver and the Levelling-party made it their design to ruine monarchy" and had only 8 chapters to this edition's 29.

Bauhin, Caspar.
Basileae: Joannis Regis, 1671. 4to (26.5 cm, 10.45"). [12] ff., 518 pp., [13] ff. [with the same author's] Caspari Bauhini ... Prodromos theatri botanici ... Basileae: Impensis Joannis Regis, 1671. 4to (26.5 cm, 10.45"). 160 pp., [6] ff.; illus.    Two hugely influential botanical works, by a Swiss botanist, anatomist, and physician (1560–1624; sometimes given as Gaspard Bauhin). Bauhin herein catalogues close to 6,000 species, establishing a system which Printing & the Mind of Man calls "a most important scientific advance," and using nomenclature later adopted by Linnaeus. => Bauhin's section on Zea mays is one of the earliest descriptions of New World maize, and was subsequently cited as such by Linnaeus.    The Prodromos is illustrated with just under => 140 woodcuts depicting a wide variety of plants. Both works are here in their second, enlarged editions, following the original publications of Pinax in 1623 and Prodromos in 1620. The first title-page is printed in red and black, and both titles bear the printer's "Per angusta ad augusta" vignette.    Evidence of readership: Many of the woodcuts have additional names supplied in an early pencilled hand.         Pinax: Printing & the Mind of Man 121(for first edition of 1623); Brunet, I, 707; Pritzel 398 (first ed.); Alden & Landis 671/6; Nissen 104.

Schließlich sollte das Buch 1626 in Köln erscheinen, aber auch diesmal war es ein Trierer Erzbischof der es verhinderte.

Bibl. delle opere di F. Redi, No. 10. A fine copy of the first Latin edition of this important entomological work, of which the first edition was published in 1668. "Redi's masterpiece is considered to be 'Esperienze ...' (1668), in which he disproved the doctrine of spontaneous generation in insects, inherited from Aristotle and still considered dogma. The microscope revealed in insects an organisation as marvelous as it was unsuspected" (D.S.B. XI, p. 341).

[GARDENING]. GEISSNER, Johan Georg.
For Sintzendorff: ADB XXXIV, pp. 408-412. A testimonial letter for a Hungarian journeyman gardener during his Wanderjahre, from Johan Georg Geißner, master "lust Gartner" at Schloss Laxenburg, outside Vienna, the principal summer residence of the Holy Roman Emperor, Karl VI. Philipp Ludwig Wenzel, Graf von Sinzendorff (1671-1742), was Imperial Erbschatzmeister, which apparently included responsibility for the gardens. Since 1721 he had also been director of the österreichischen Orientalischen Handelskompanie, so he may have had a hand in acquiring some of the garden's exotic plants. The document is folded up and has some minor stains on the back, but is in very good condition, though without the seal that would originally been attached with cords through the slits at the foot.

Montanus, Arnoldus:
Amsterdam: Jacob Meurs, 1671.. Engraved titlepage, [8],585,[27]pp. plus seven portraits, thirty-one double-page plates, large folding hemispheric map, and fifteen double-page maps. Seventy engraved in- text illustrations. Small folio. Modern three quarter speckled calf and marbled boards, red gilt morocco label. [IN WORK WITH HEALD] Expert repair to lower corner of engraved titlepage. Bookplate on front pastedown. Overall quite clean internally. Very good. Correctly called "a classic book on America" by Borba de Moraes, Montanus' narrative contains a wealth of interesting maps and illustrations on both North and South America. The work was later translated into English, with various alterations, by John Ogilby, but this Dutch edition is the true first. The North American section of Montanus contains notable versions of the Blaeu map of New England and New Netherland, as well as versions of the John Smith Virginia and Carolina maps. Among the engravings in the text is one of the first engraved views of New York (the very first, the Van der Donck view, appeared twenty years earlier). There is also a detailed map of Bermuda. There are numerous engraved views of cities and scenes in Mexico and the Caribbean. Much of the second half of the volume is devoted to Brazil, where the Dutch were deeply involved for decades in the 17th century, illustrated with numerous maps and views. The large double-sheet views are excellent and much copied in later publications; but, as Church comments: "The finely executed engravings of this work are especially brilliant in this, the original e … [Click Below for Full Description]
