        Relation de divers voyages curieux qui n'ont point esté publiées, qui ont esté Traduites d'Hacluyt, de Purchas, & d'autres Voyageurs Anglois, Hollandois, Portugais, Allemands Espagnols; et de quelques Persans, Arabes et Autres Auteurs Orientaux. Enrichis de Figures de plantes non décrites, d'Animaux inconnus à l'Europe, & de Cartes Geographiques de Pays dont on n'a point encore donné de Cartes

      Paris: Jacques Langlois, 1663-, 1672. Four volumes in two, folio, with a total of 14 maps and charts (ten engraved and four woodcut), including large folding maps of Australia, China, the Pacific, with the Philippines and Japan, and numerous engraved plates (many folding or double-page) of costumes, plants, animals, alphabets etc., 46 full-page woodcut plates of Mexican inscriptions and pictograms, and numerous engravings and several tables in the text; some light foxing as often seen in this work, rather less than usual, and a few stains; generally a large wide-margined copy, in very good condition, with excellent impressions of the engraving; a very good copy in contemporary calf, gilt, with red morocco title labels gilt, joints expertly renewed; covers restored at extremities. With the famous map of Pelsaert and Tasman's discoveries. One of the most important of all travel collections, lavishly illustrated, and especially significant for the first appearance of numerous descriptions of the Pacific, the Far East, Australia and the Philippines. This was the first major work on Australia and the Pacific to receive a wide European readership.The geographical scope of the collection is nearly universal, taking in the Americas, China, Japan, Siam, the Philippines, Mongolia, India, Tartary, Egypt, Persia, Arabia, Asia Minor and Russia. American material includes the Voyage de Sieur Acarete a Buenos Aires and the Voyage du Sieur *** dans la rivière de la Plate & de la par terre au Perou, as well as a translation of Thomas Gage's account of the Mexican empire. Virtually all the component parts are enriched by illustration, the choice of material sometimes unpredictable and quite idiosyncratic: it ranges from detailed charts of coastlines suitable for navigational purposes, and a number of cartographically important maps, to depictions of botanical specimens, exotic cultural practices and writing systems. The range and quirky variety makes this one of the visual feasts of travel literature.This is a copy of the complete work as it existed in 1672, in the form in which it remained for twenty-four years. In 1696 a posthumous edition appeared republishing the first four parts and adding a final, fifth part, with many of the plates re-engraved, often in reverse. The engraving of the original editions, as here, is superior.Accompanying the account of Pelsaert's discovery of Australia is the rare and famous map of Abel Tasman's discoveries. The earliest printed map devoted solely to Australia, and the first published result of Tasman's great voyages, it was Thévenot's map which gave the world a clear idea of the shape and location of the new fifth continent.The Tasman map appeared in at least four different states: in this copy it is in its third state, with corrections, and with the addition of the Tropic of Capricorn and rhumb lines. This is the appropriate form of the map to appear in a copy of the work acquired by its owner between 1672, the date of publication of the fourth part here, and the appearance of the collected edition in 1696, copies of which usually contain a fourth state of the map, the version most often seen.Thévenot's work has one of the most complicated publication histories of any illustrated travel collection, since it was published over the course of more than thirty years. Comparison of copies, even in contemporary bindings like that offered here, inevitably demonstrates some variation in organization and contents. Various bibliographies have been attempted, the best early one being Contributions to a Catalogue of the Lenox Library, no. III, The Voyages of Thévenot (1879) but the most thorough bibliographical description of the work to date can be found in the catalogue of the John Carter Brown Library. A full collation of this copy, which has all the required components, is available on request.This excellent set has an interesting provenance: before the French Revolution it was in the Bibliothèque du Roi in the Palais Royal, and has the library's stamp on both title-pages. Subsequently it belonged to Sir Joseph Hawley, whose library at Leybourne Grange was 'the most valuable in Kent' according to the DNB, which calls him a 'great bookworm'. Hawley is better remembered as one of the greatest English patrons of horse racing and bloodstock.

        Coelum sephiroticum Hebraeorum, per portas intelligentiae, Moysi revelatas. .. medicinae, chymiae, astronomiae, astrologiae, botanicae, zoologiae . . .

      With large printer?s device on title, 1 full page plate, 19 text engravings, and ornate woodcut head - and tailpieces. Recently bound in vellum using a an old Hebrew manuscript with a few obvious repairs; interior very clean with the occasional phrase underlined in pencil. First edition of this wonderful treatise on natural philosophy based upon an occult interpretation of the seven days of creation. According to Thorndike, this work purports ?to derive new principles of medicine, chemistry, astronomy, astrology, botany, zoology, anthropology and other sciences from the most ancient Hebraic truth through the gates of intelligence revealed to Moses.? Steeb (fl. 1672 - 1680) was influenced by the works of Pythagoras, Paracelsus, and Kircher, and Pico della Mirandola, and borrowed elements of Kabbalic thought for his interpretation of the universe and its creation. The author?s interest in celestial spheres, the creation of the earth, and the synthesis of several branches of science, religion, and the occult necessitated the invention of an array of unusual pseudoscientific diagrams to elucidate the text of his ambitious treatise. These diagrams are mostly circular (with octagonal plate marks) and many of them incorporate beautiful celestial imagery into their programs in addition to Latin, Greek, Hebrew, and various astrological and alchemical symbols. One interesting observation is Steeb?s perspective on salt, which has played a role in alchemy as the physical ?body? which survives death to reinaugurate new life. He remarks that ?sal sit ultimum in corruptione, sed & primum in generatione? (salt is the last in corruption and the first in generation). The author also makes reference to Atlantis and America in this work. A very fine copy of this unusual and highly creative treatise.

        De anima brutorum.

      Ric Davis, London 1672 - Willis, Thomas (1621-75). De anima brutorum. 8vo [48], 400, [16]pp. 8 engraved plates (mostly folding). Signatures R & S transposed; pl. VIII bound in upside-down. London: E. F. [for] Ric. Davis, 1672. 154 x 95 mm. Full modern calf, gilt spine, 17th century style. Light browning, slight soiling. Very good copy, in a handsome period-style binding. Faint 17th century signature on imprimatur leaf; recent owner's signature on title. First 8vo Edition, published shortly after the initial quarto and with copperplates identical to the quarto version. Garrison-Morton 1544, 4793 & 4966. Willis recognized the difference between the symptoms of gross brain disease and those of mental illness. Because he postulated a disturbance of the brain and nerves in terms of disordered "animal spirits" in the absence of pathological findings, he is often considered the first to have equated mind disease with brain disease.

        Il viaggio all'Indie Orientali. Con le osservationi, e successi nel medesimo, i costumi, e riti di varie nationi... con la descrittione degl' animali quadrupedi, serpenti, ucelli, piante di quel Mondo Nuovo, con le loro virtù singolari... -

      Roma, Mancini, 1672.In - 4. Legatura coeva in pergamena, dorso con nervi e titolo calligrafato. Con un'antiporta allegorica disegnata da Giulio Bersani ed incisa in rame da Pietro Santi Bartoli. (24, inclusa l'antiporta), 482, (22) pp.; timbro del Conte Francesco Cardelli di Roma (sec. XVIII) sul frontespizio; uniformi bruniture. Prima edizione di questa stimata descrizione. L?autore fu inviato in India nel 1656 dalla Sacra Congregazione di Propaganda Fide e ?la relazione che ne scrisse è forse la più importante che fosse scritta nel secolo XVII. La geografia, l?etnografia e le scienze naturali vi hanno una parte essenziale e, dei cinque libri onde si compone la relazione, il III è tutto dedicato alla descrizione geografica dell?India e dei costumi dei suoi abitanti; il IV si riferisce alla fauna ed alla flora. Pochi moderni viaggiatori dell?India mostrarono maggiore diligenza, esattezza e spirito di osservazione...? (Amat di S. Filippo, Biografia dei viaggiatori italiani, pp. 423 - 424). Murchio rientrò a Roma nel 1658, e il suo resoconto include anche ampie notizie degli altri paesi visitati, quali la Turchia, Libano, Siria, Persia, Arabia (un capitolo è dedicato a Muscat, l?attuale capitale dell?Oman), Malta, ecc. Olschki, Choix, 19789. Vinciana, Aut. Italiani del ?600, 1404. Hünersdorff, Coffee, p. 1045: ?The present account is much more detailed than the usual contemporary reports?? First edition. The author went to India as a missionary in 1656, travelling through Turkey, Lebanon, Syria, Persia, Arabia, Oman, Malta and other countries. After his return to Rome in 1658 he wrote this fascinating account, in which he describes places (many hitherto unknown to European travelers), people, customs, costumes, architecture, antiquities, food, natural history, etc. With an engr. allegorical frontispiece. 18th century collector?s stamp on title. Uniform browning throughout but generally a good copy bound in contemp. stiff vellum, ms. title on spine.

        Anatomia chirurgica cioè Istoria anatomica dell'ossa, e muscoli del corpo humano, con la descrittione de vasi piu riguardeuoli che scorrono per le parti esterne, & un breue trattato del moto, che chiamano circolatione del sangue.

      Rome, Nicoloò Angelo Tinassi, 1672. Small 8vo. Inserted into a lovely-custommade binding of old vellum, with later elegant gilding (supposedly commissioned by the previous owner Piergiergio Borio - "P.B." in gold to spine) . Gilt line-borders with gilt ornamentel cornerpieces and gilt centrepiece to boards. Gilt ornamentations and gilt title-label to spine. Ex libris to inside of front board. Early owner's names to title-page. Engraved frontispiece with barely visible re-enforcement to inner hinge and with some small ink spots. Some sections of leaves with a worm-tract to inner margin, touching a few letters here and there. Some occasional browning and brownspotting, but overall fine. Generally a nice copy. (26), 455, (1) pp. Engraved frontispiece.. The extremely rare first edition of the first book devoted entirely to surgical anatomy. Genga's milestone work founded the discipline of anatomical surgery; it was frequently reprinted and remained a widely used manual for decades after its first appearance. Genga furthermore, in the tract appended to this work (i.e the "Breve Discorso" on the circulation of the blood, pp. 420-448), showed himself to be one of the first Italians to accept Harvey's theory on the circulation of blood. "Though anatomy was hitherto cultivated with much success as illustrating the natural history and morbid states of the human body, yet little had been done for the elucidation of local diseases, and the surgical means by which they may have been successfully treated. The idea of applying anatomical knowledge directly to this purpose appears to have originated with Barnardin Genga, a Roman surgeon, who published in 1672, at Rome, a work entitled "Surgical Anatomy, or the Anatomical History of the Bones and Muscles of the Human Body, with the description of the Blood-vessels". This work, which reached a second edition in 1687, is highly creditable to the author, who appears to have studied intimately the mutual relations of different parts." (Encyclopaedia Britannica). This foundational work, Genga's first work, was extremely influential and widely used. It was reprinted a number of times within the following decades. The first edition of it is of great scarcity. Most of the bibliographies only have later editions, and one of the few copies that are listed on OCLC is incomplete, lacking the title-page. We have only been able to locate one copy at auction within the last 40 years (in 1979).

        De funeribus Romanorum libri quatuor cum appendice. Accessit et Funus parasiticum Nicolai Rigaltii

      Leiden: apud Hackios, 1672. FIRST ILLUSTRATED EDITION. VERY GOOD ANTIQUARIAN CONDITION. Romeyn de Hooghe. 12mo., 2 parts in 1 volume: 23 ff., 649 pp. (wrongly numbered 641), 22 ff.; 24 pp. With fine etched frontispiece and 4 etched folding plates by Romeyn de Hooghe. Woodcut printer's device on both titles. Many passages in Greek. BOUND WITH: Kirchmann, J. In funere Pauli Merulae historiarum professoris in Academia Batavorum, & foederatarum provinciarum historiographi, oratio, in qua de vita scriptisque ejus disseritur. Lugd. Batav., ex officina Hackiana, 1672. Woodcut printer's mark on title. 4 ff., 64 pages. Front cover spotted, first blank excised (traces of inscription). Contemporary Dutch vellum Prize Binding, richly gilt, bound in Middelburg by the GLISSEN BINDERY and with the armorial device of the City of Middelburg on both covers and on spine. FIRST ILLUSTRATED EDITION, and the only edition to contain these folding engraved plates by Romeyn de Hooghe. Ad 1: A rich collection of inscriptions and of quotations taken from ancient authors concerning the funeral rites, burial places, etc. of antiquity and especially of the Romans, by Johannes Kirchmann (Lubeck 1575-1643), a philologist, was professor of poetry in Rostock and later rector in Lubeck. "De funeribus Romanorum" is a wide-ranging work on the funeral rites and practices of the ancient Romans, including preservation of the corpse, the mourners and funeral processions, cremations, burials and memorials. Written in four parts, each part is illustrated with an engraved, folding plate by Romeyn de Hooghe: the first plate illustrates the corpse of a noble lady being borne on an elaborately draped litter by a group of soldiers while attendants wave wreaths and flowers; the second plate illustrates the funeral procession through the city with soldiers, attendants and mourners carrying torches and wreaths, horses prancing, mourners wailing, etc; the third plate illustrates the cremation of a body upon a pyre of logs some twenty feet high -in the foreground attendants prepare sacrifices of animals and birds and (it appears) several unfortunate people, possibly slaves; the fourth plate shows offerings of dead animals, wine and fruits being placed before an elaborate memorial be decked with garlands and wreaths. The engraved title page is also of interest, picturing another flaming cremation, this one taking place upon a pyre which is fully five stories high, fitted out with columns and draped with curtains and statuary; at the top a chariot and horses stand ready for the flight to the afterworld (one assumes). Ad 2: The appendix is a charming little treatise published in the same year, written by Nicolai Rigaltio, on the subject of parasites and protecting the corpse from them. The second book, bound in, is a funeral oration, also by Kirchmann, delivered at the funeral of Paulus Mercula, a Leiden professor (1558, Dordrecht - 1607, Rostock). REFERENCES: Landwehr, Romeyn de Hooghe No. 20 (not mentioning the second part (of 24 pp.) by Rigaltius. Rossetti 5898. BINDING: a Dutch Prize Binding from the GLISSEN BINDERY in Middelburg (a.k.a. Middleburgh). We are grateful to Jan Storm van Leeuwan for his identification of the bindery and of the arms of Middelburg. The present binding features van Leeuwen's tools 9a + 9b and roll III. The large panel stamp on the covers represents the arms of the City of Middelburg; this stamp was actually City property. It is reproduced in DDB p. 557 (tool 2) and p. 559 (block F). The Glissen Bindery may have existed for only three or four years (ca. 1790-1793; see DDB IIB, pp. 691-695). For obvious reasons, securely identifiable examples from this Dutch workshop are rare in private ownership.

Exercise and Health -- Medical Gymnastics. An important edition of the first illustrated book on gymnastics, as well as the first to deal at all with the medical aspects of gymnastics, games, and exercise, including wrestling, boxing, swimming, dancing, weight-lifting, discus throwing, etc. Mercurialis was professor of medicine at the University of Padua and a prolific writer on a wide variety of medical subjects. But his chief fame rests on this work, with its beautiful and striking woodcuts by Christoforo Coriolano, an Italian woodcutter from Nuremberg who was employed in Italy, first used in the second edition of 1573., printed by Giunta. For this edition, the original Giunta blocks were transferred to Amsterdam, and Andreas Frisius in his introduction first identifies the artist as Cristoforo Coriolano, stating that the originals were so beautiful that even those ignorant of Latin bought the book for its illustrations First published in 1569, it is "one of the earliest books to discuss the therapeutic value of gymnastics and sports generally for the cure of disease and disability, and an important study of gymnastics in the ancient world" (Garrison-Morton 1986); the second edition of 1573 was the first illustrated book on gymnastics, containing woodcuts by Cristoforo Coriolano after Pirro Ligorio, which also appear here. However, Brunet calls this revised and enlarged edition the first valuable one, in terms of both contents and rarity, and the matchless quality of the large woodcuts.

        The Institution, Laws & Ceremonies of the Noble Order of the Garter

      1672. HONI SOIT QUI MAL Y PENSE ASHMOLE, Elias. The Institution, Laws & Ceremonies of the Noble Order of the Garter. [12], 720, [106] pp. Illustrated with a total of 54 engraved plates, including a full-page engraved portrait of Charles II, 15 double-spread engravings, 22 full-page engravings and 16 small engravings, most after Wenceslaus Hollar. Folio, 350 x 220 mm, bound in near-contemporary English speckled calf, spine with intricate gilt tooling and red leather title-label. London: J. Macock, 1672. |~||~||~||~||~||~| First Edition. Ashmole's exhaustive treatise concerns all aspects of "The Most Noble Order of the Garter" the highest order of chivalry or knighthood in Great Britain. Founded in 1348, the Order is dedicated to the image and arms of Saint George, England's patron saint. 'After peerages it remains the pinnacle of the honours system in the United Kingdom. Membership in the order is limited to the Sovereign, the Prince of Wales, and no more than twenty-four members, or Companions; the order also comprises knights and ladies (e.g., members of the British Royal Family and foreign monarchs). Bestowing the honour has been described as one of the Monarch's few remaining truly personal, executive prerogatives.' Wenceslaus Hollar (1607-1677) was hired by Ashmole to produce the illustrations for this lavish volume. Despite the fact that Ashmole's treatise "includes all available information on the Garter and much peripheral material on the Continental orders and ceremonies… without illustrations the book would be incomparably poorer, and Hollar's signed and unsigned work is clearly the chief part of the illustrations" (Van Eerde, Wenceslaus Hollar, Delineator of His Time, p. 95). One often encounters copies without a number of the engravings in The Institution, Laws & Ceremonies of the Noble Order of the Garter. This copy has a full complement of 54 engraved plates, including all the views of Windsor Castle, the scarce portrait of Charles II and the fireworks display for Charles XI of Sweden. Elias Ashmole (1617-1692), celebrated English antiquary, author, officer of arms, collector, politician, astrologer, alchemist, botanist, etc., was a strong supporter of the royalist side during the Civil War, ending in the restoration of his later patron, Charles II. A founding member of the Royal Society, he was often engaged in mystical works on alchemy and astrology instead of on experimental science. As an early member of the order of Freemasons, he met John Tradescant around 1650 and helped catalogue the renowned family collection of exotic plants, minerals and curiosities gathered from travels around the world and housed at the Tradescant house in Lambeth. In 1656 Ashmole financed the publication of the catalogue, The Museum Tradescantianum. In the late 1670s Ashmole inherited the Tradescant collection and added it to his own growing collections of antiquities, manuscripts, coins and books. He donated most of his collection in 1683 to the University of Oxford to create the Ashmolean Museum "considered by some to be the first truly public museum in Europe." Volume rebacked with original spine laid-down. Overall, fine. PROVENANCE: Richard Blake Deverell (1675-1820) of Clifton with his exlibris. Wing A3983. See: Katherine Van Eerde, Wenceslaus Hollar, Delineator of His Time, pp. 95-100 with six reproductions.

[14], 362 [i.e. 374], [66], 269, [71], 48, [12] p.. 1672 Caballo (d. 1616) was a Florentine judge and legal writer who saw his "Resolutionum criminalium" achieve great acceptance upon publication in 1606 and as attested to by the several later editions in the 17th century.

        Ryori kondate shu [trans.: Collection of Menus]

      Three double-page & two single-page woodcuts. 30 folding leaves. 8vo, orig. wrappers, new stitching. Tokyo: Matsue Ichirobei, 1672. First edition of one of the earliest Japanese cookbooks, finely illustrated with three double-page and two smaller woodcuts depicting three chefs in ceremonial attire in a kitchen, cutting fowl, carp, and monkfish with sacred knives for a banquet; a wedding banquet with foods displayed; three tables with different dishes on display; and a ceremonial table with autumnal foods shown. This book is the first aesthetically produced Japanese cookbook, focused on ceremonial menus. These menus were carefully constructed to have many deep meanings for the participants. In the double-page woodcut of the kitchen, we see the equipment used, plates, containers carrying fish (including abalone), daikon radishes, trays, etc. The double-page woodcut of a luxurious wedding ceremony shows sake vessels and a number of dishes, all of which have significance (for example, clams have two shells, a good portent for the new couple). The three tables display food for the newlywed couple and their guests, including abalone, clams, duck, shrimp, sea cucumbers, and various vegetables. In the third double-page woodcut, we see kitchen workers preparing for the banquet, with boiling pots, foods placed on trays, and stacks of trays being carried. Some of the ingredients include whale meat, fish roe, duck, various shell fish, octopus, jelly fish, many kinds of vegetables, eggs, dried squid, tofu, pheasant, sashimi (many kinds including trout, yellowtail tuna, carp, and lobster, and certain river fish), geese, etc. The woodcuts are very much in Moronobu's style. Matsue Ichirobei was one of the most influential publishers in Tokyo of the period, known for the attractiveness of his publications. Listed are hundreds of dishes for special ceremonies, many of which include the steps in preparation. The menus are arranged by season (really by month), according to availability of materials. For instance, in January, if a certain soup is chosen, proposed are appropriate meat, fish, or vegetarian dishes, each with a symbolic meaning. The first printed Japanese cookery book -- Ryori monogatari -- was published in 1643. A fine copy of a real rarity. No copy located in WorldCat. .

Very Good. 12 memoires and 10 conferences paginated consecutively, 276pp. The copy described in Brunet (596/7) has 12 and 14 conferences, some published in 1674 (here the title page date is 1672 but 1673 at the rear colophon), other copies encountered - likely printed later - continue with a few more conferences. 8 full page plates one repeated (of a child, fully formed, found in an egg 6 weeks after conception) in Memoires 4 and 5, and a number of in text illustrations including one of a mer-man. Trimmed close to title headings on top edge, but no loss to text. Scattered stains including one large, circular brown stain (2" across at its largest) in the gutter of the last quarter of the book - no text is obscured, though, and the book is largely clean otherwise. Denis was the physician to Louis XIV and the first person to perform a blood transfusion (from a lamb to a man). This remarkable record of scientific discovery, covering snakes, speaking trumpets, heart anatomy (including a remarkable plate), and most of the serious science of the time (both on the continent and trickling in from The Royal Society in London) as well as a sampling of the more fanciful reports, is quite scarce.

This classic treatise was written in the sixteenth century, but first published in 1617 in Dutch. It went through eleven more Dutch-language editions, the final in 1736. A French-language edition was published in 1703. The Latin edition incorporates the notes and observations of Simon van Leeuwen, which were added to later Dutch editions, and additional commentary by Matthaeus de Vicq. The notes are identified and arranged in double columns. Educated at the University of Louvain, Weytsen was a King's Counselor at the Hague during the mid-sixteenth century. OCLC locates no copies of this edition, and few copies of any other, in North America. Dekkers, Bibliotheca Belgica Juridica 190.

        La Geometria del Compasso.Pavia: Heirs of Pietro Galeazzi, 1797.

      First edition of Mascheroni's most important book, in which he proves that any geometrical construction that can be performed using ruler and compasses can be carried out by means of compasses alone. The history of the problem goes back at least as far as Euclid, the restriction to ruler and compass occurring in Book I of the <i>Elements</i>. The problem of carrying out constructions under additional restrictions was considered by da Vinci, Dürer, Cardano and Tartaglia, among others.<br/><br/> "In the preface Mascheroni recounts the genesis of his work. He was moved initially by a desire to make a contribution to elementary geometry. It occurred to him that ruler and compass could perhaps be separated, as water can into two gases; but he was assailed by doubts and fears often attendant upon research. He then chanced to reread an article on the way Graham and Bird [who supplied instruments to Maupertuis] had divided their great astronomical quadrant, and he realised that the division had been made by compass alone, although, to be sure, by trial and error. This encouraged him and he continued his work with two purposes in mind: to give a theoretical solution to the problem of constructions with compasses alone and to offer practical constructions that might be of help in making precision instruments. The second concern is shown in the brief solutions of many specific problems and in a chapter on approximate solutions. <br/><br/> "The theoretical solution (see especially §191) depends on the solution of the following problems: (1) to bisect a given circular arc of given center; (2) to add and subtract given segments; (3) to find the fourth proportional to three given segments; (4) to find the intersection of two given lines; (5) to find the intersection of a given line and a given circle" (<i>DSB</i>).<br/><br/> There is some debate as to whether Mascheroni's result was anticipated by the Danish mathematician George Mohr in his <i>Euclides Danicus</i> (1672), although Mascheroni explicitly denied that anyone had previously treated the matter. "When the works of Mascheroni and Mohr are compared, it is apparent that the main ideas of their solutions of individual problems are in most cases quite different. In particular, this can be said for the bisection of a given segment. Moreover, the problem of bisection plays no role in Mascheroni's general solution, whereas it is central in Mohr's constructions. Still more significantly, the general problem is not formulated in Mohr's book. Thus, any suggestion of Mascheroni's direct reliance on Mohr would be quite inappropriate... Mohr's book is quite remarkable and contains the basis for a simple proof of Mascheroni's result, but there is no evidence within the book itself that Mohr formulated the problem of constructions with compass alone in complete generality" (<i>ibid</i>.).<br/><br/> Bound after the title is the dedication in verse to Napoleon. The connection with Napoleon is of special interest as 1797 was the year Bonaparte was elected a member of the <i>Académie des Sciences</i>. His interest was attracted by Mascheroni's work and, to amuse himself, he selected geometrical problems from it and presented them to his <i>confreres</i> at the <i>Académie</i> to solve. They were, however, unable to do so. The most difficult of these problems was to determine the centre of a drawn circle, by means of just a compass, which is still known as the <i>Problème de Napoleon</i>.<br/><br/> "Mascheroni (1750-1800) was the son of Paolo Mascheroni dell'Olmo, a prosperous landowner, and Maria Ciribelli. He was ordained a priest at seventeen and at twenty was teaching rhetoric and then, from 1778, physics and mathematics at the seminary of Bergamo. His <i>Nuove ricerche su l'equilibrio delle volte</i> (1785) led to his appointment as professor of algebra and geometry at the University of Pavia in 1786. In 1789 and 1793 he was rector of the university and, from 1788 to 1791, was head of the Accademia degli Affidati. Mascheroni was a member of the Academy of Padua, of the Royal Academy of Mantua, and of the Società Italiana delle Scienze. In his <i>Adnotationes ad calculum integrale Euleri</i> (1790) he calculated Euler's constant, sometimes called the Euler-Mascheroni constant, to thirty-two decimal places; the figure was corrected from the twentieth decimal place by Johann von Soldner in 1809. <br/><br/> "In 1797 Mascheroni was appointed deputy to the legislative body in Milan. Sent to Paris by a commission to study the new system of money and of weights and measures, he published his findings in 1798 but was prevented from returning home by the Austrian occupation of Milan in 1799. Also a poet, Mascheroni dedicated his <i>Geometria del compass</i> (1797) to Napoleon in verse; his celebrated <i>Invito a Lesbia Cidonia</i> (1793) glorifies the athenaeum of Pavia. He died after a brief illness, apparently from the complications of a cold. The poet Monti mourned his death in the <i>Mascheroniana</i>" (<i>ibid</i>.).. 8vo (226 x 135 mm), pp. [iv], iii-xviii, 264 with 14 folding engraved plates, woodcut device on title and several woodcut head- and tail-pieces.

        The true prophecies or prognostications of Michael Nostradamus, physician to Henry II, Francis II, and Charles IX, Kings of France, and one of the best astronomers that ever were. A work full of curiosity and learning

      London: Thomas Ratcliffe and Nathaniel Thompson, 1672 Title in red and black. Without the frontispiece portrait, missing in about half the copies extant. Contemporary calf, spine gilt with red morocco label; some leaves browned and foxed, otherwise a sound copy with the book label of Stewart of Glassertoun. First edition in English of the book of prophecies of Nostradamus, first printed in French in 1555 under the title Les propheties. It was originally done in three installments, the first containing 353 quatrains, or four-line poems. The second installment, containing 289 further quatrains, was printed in 1557, while the third installment of 300 new quatrains was printed in 1558, but apparently only survives as part of the ?"works?" which was published after his death. Each quatrain is a prediction of future events, which Nostradamus claimed was based upon astrological assessment of the quality of an occurrence such as a birth, death, wedding, etc. Much of the work, especially the more dramatic prophecies, apparently paraphrase the endeavors of earlier writers such as Livy, Plutarch, and other classical historians. Many of his astrological references are taken almost word for word from Richard Roussat?'s Livre de l?'estat et mutations des temps (1549?-1550). One of his major prophetic sources was evidently the Mirabilis Liber of 1522, which contained a range of prophecies by Pseudo-Methodius, the Tiburtine Sibyl, Joachim of Fiore, Savonarola and others. Nostradamus was one of the first to re-paraphrase these prophecies in French, which may explain why they are credited to him. Further material was gleaned from the De honesta disciplina of 1504 by Petrus Crinitus, which included extracts from Michael Psellos?'s De daemonibus, and the De Mysteriis Aegyptiorum, a book on Chaldean and Assyrian magic by Iamblichus, a fourth-century Neo-Platonist. Most of the quatrains deal with disasters, such as plagues, earthquakes, wars, floods, invasions, murders, droughts, and battles—all undated and based on foreshadowings by the Mirabilis Liber. Some quatrains cover these disasters in overall terms; others concern a single person or small group of people. Some cover a single town, others several towns in several countries. A major, underlying theme is an impending invasion of Europe by Muslim forces from further east and south headed by the expected Antichrist, directly reflecting the then-current Ottoman invasions and the earlier Saracen equivalents, as well as the prior expectations of the Mirabilis Liber. All of this is presented in the context of the supposedly imminent end of the world.
