BACON, Francis
1671. "Some books should be tasted, some devoured, but only a few should be chewed and digested thoroughly." ― Francis Bacon Francis Bacon was one of the most famous English philosophers and scientists of the Renaissance. While most of his work deals with discovery, scientific method, and the scientific revolution, he did lean strongly toward Puritanism in his personal devotion. An extremely rare folio printing of "Resuscitatio" by Francis Bacon. This edition is a reissue of the 1657 edition, but it is very close in content and enlarged. This book includes the works of Bacon including his most famous and popular letters and essays, such as his letters to Queen Elizabeth. This third edition was, according to the title page, from 'the best corrected copies'. A fantastic work! [Attributes: First Edition]

SELLER, John.
London: John Seller, John Colson, William Fisher & James Atkinson, c.1678. 430 x 545mm. A few small repairs. A fine sea chart of the western Indian Ocean, dedicated to the East India Company. Orientated with north to the left, it shows from the Cape of Good Hope to Cape Comorin in India, with the coasts if both the Red Sea and Persian Gulf surrounded by names. The title is within an ornate cartouche surmounted with the original arms of the East India Company, replaced in 1709. Originally published by Seller in 1671, this example was issued during the short-lived consortium of the four publishers, 1677-8, brought about by Seller's financial difficulties. At the time the Portuguese still had footholds on the eastern African including at Mombasa; before the end of the century the Omani Empire had driven them out.

Edition originale dédiée au marquis de Seignelay, achevée d'imprimer le 15 janvier 1671. Le père Dominique Bouhours (1628-1702) était membre de la Compagnie de Jésus. Après une carrière d'enseignant qui l'amena à parfaire l'éducation des jeunes princes de Longueville et du marquis de Seignelay, fils de Colbert, il fit sensation auprès des habitués des samedis de mademoiselle de Scudéry. Madame de Sévigné alla jusqu'à dire que « L'esprit lui sort de tous côtés. » Ses Entretiens d'Ariste et d'Eugène sont une critique littéraire dirigée contre les jansénistes. Ils se composent de 6 entretiens, ou conversations littéraires, dans lesquels l'auteur aborde des thèmes très divers tels que : La mer - La langue française - Le secret - Le bel esprit - Le je ne scay quoi - Les devises. Il y vante notamment les écrivains de salons, comme La Rochefoucauld et Méré, et oppose leur style à celui qu'il juge hyperbolique et incohérent des écrivains de Port-Royal. L'ouvrage eut un très grand succès et fut aussitôt attaqué par l'avocat et ardent janséniste Jean Barbier-d'Aucourt dans ses Sentiments de Cléanthe (1671). L'édition est illustrée d'un très beau front … [Click Below for Full Description]

MANFREDI, Paolo Manfredus
De Lazaris, Roma, 1671. In -8°, pp. 12, cartonato moderno. Paolo Manfredi (1640-1716), lucchese di nascita, visse a Roma dove studiò al Collegio Romano e poi alla Sapienza, dove si sarebbe dedicato alla medicina. Dopo aver studiato per qualche anno le trasfusioni da uomo a uomo e da animale a uomo, ottenne un posto di lettore ordinario di anatomia e chirurgia nel 1668, poco prima della redazione di questo racconto di una dissezione, volume che, nel suo stile, accorda "un approccio strettamente dimostrativo con uno più tradizionalmente retorico-filosofico" (DBI, sub vocem)Paolo Manfredi (1640-1716), born in Lucca, lived in Rome where he was a student at the Collegio Romano and then at La Sapienza University, where he devoted himself to medicine. After having studied some years the blood transfusion (even the animal-to-man one), he obtained a chair as a teacher in anatomy and surgery in 1668, before drafting this dissection tale, a volume that, in Manfredi's style, is written halfway between demonstration and philosophy (see Dbi, sub vocem)

Reliure aux armes de Jean-Jacques Charron de Menars (Orléanais), Vicomte puis Marquis de Menars, 'Il fut un grand bibliophile et acquis vers 1679 la collection de Thou qu'il vendit au cardinal de Rohan' Olivier Pl. 185. TII. D'azur au chevron d'or accompagné de 3 étoiles d'or, couronne ducale supportée par 2 cygnes. Reliure en pleine basane d'époque. Dos à nerfs orné. Coiffe de queue frottée. Bernard de Montfaucon, originaire de Roquetaillade, près de Limoux, était un des hommes les plus érudits de son temps et par ce fait l'un des plus célèbres de son époque, notamment pour son oeuvre monumentale : l'antiquité expliquée en figures. Il était bénédictin, de la congrégation de Saint Maur. L'abbaye de la Trappe, fondé par l'ordre des cisterciens fut annexée au domaine des bénédictins. Elle sera réformée au XVIIe selon 'la règle de la stricte observance'par l'abbé de Rancé, beaucoup plus rigide et sévère que celle des Cisterciens. C'est précisément cette réforme que commente Bernard de Montfaucon, réforme qui insuffla un renouveau spirituel à la chrétienté, et qui sauva l'abbaye de la Trappe de l'oubli et de la décadence dans laquelle tombèrent maintes abbayes à cette époque. - Photos sur www.Edition-originale.com - [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] " Michel le Petit et Estienne Michallet à Paris _1671 "In 12 (7,5x13cm)" (18) 75pp. relié

[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.l "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]

Text in double columns, with marginal notes. Dedication dated: d. 4 April: 1671. EXTREMELY RARE SECOND EDITION OF THIS RICHLY ILLUSTRATED TREATISE ON DENDROLOGY BY THE ITALIAN NATURALIST ULISSE ALDROVANDI. The first was published posthumous in Bologna in 1668. Dendrology is the science and study of wooded plants (trees, shrubs, and lianas), specifically, their taxonomic classifications. Dendrology is often confused with botany. However, botany is the study of all types of general plants, while dendrology studies only woody plants. Dendrology may be considered a subcategory of botany that specializes in the characterization and identification of woody plants. Ulisse Aldrovandi (11 September 1522 - 4 May 1605) was an Italian naturalist, the moving force behind Bologna's botanical garden, one of the first in Europe. Carl Linnaeus and the comte de Buffon reckoned him the father of natural history studies. He is usually referred to, especially in older literature, as Aldrovandus; his name in Italian is equally given as Aldroandi. Provenance: Handwritten ownership inscrptions at title-page (deleted).

SELLER, John.
London: John Seller, John Colson, William Fisher & James Atkinson, c.1678. 430 x 545mm. A few small repairs. A fine sea chart of the western Indian Ocean, dedicated to the East India Company. Orientated with north to the left, it shows from the Cape of Good Hope to Cape Comorin in India, with the coasts if both the Red Sea and Persian Gulf surrounded by names. The title is within an ornate cartouche surmounted with the original arms of the East India Company, replaced in 1709. Originally published by Seller in 1671, this example was issued during the short-lived consortium of the four publishers, 1677-8, brought about by Seller's financial difficulties. At the time the Portuguese still had footholds on the eastern African including at Mombasa; before the end of the century the Omani Empire had driven them out.
