        Experimenta nova Magdeburgica de vacuo spatio [New Magdeburg Experiments Concerning Empty Space]. Amsterdam: Johannes Jansson Waesberge. 1672

      1672 FIRST EDITION AND IMPORTANT ASSOCIATION COPY of 'one of the greatest books in the history of experimental physics' (Jenkins, Sparkmuseum). In this volume, Guericke "describes the invention of the air pump and the famous experiment with the Magdeburg hemispheres in which two teams of eight horses were employed in an attempt to pull apart two copper hemispheres from which the air had been withdrawn. [He] also describes the invention of the first electrical machine, which generated the first visible and audible electric charges" (Honeyman). Gifted (with inscription) from the German physicist Woldemar Voigt to the Dutch physicist Hendrik Lorentz, this copy is in near fine condition in every way save for its lack of an engraved portrait. (See provenance above). Experimenta nova describes and beautifully illustrates Guericke's personal and detailed report on his establishment of the physics of vacuums. Questioning Descartes's assertion that a vacuum could not exist, Guericke began in 1850 with the construction of "the first air pump, which he [then] used to create a vacuum in various containers. He showed that sound would not travel in a vacuum, and furthermore that a vacuum would not support combustion or animal life. In 1654 Guericke gave an impressive demonstration [the Magdeburg experiment] in front of the emperor Ferdinand III of the force of atmospheric pressure. Two identical copper hemispheres 12 feet (3.66 m) in diameter were joined together. When the air was pumped out, 16 horses could not pull them apart although when the air reentered the hemispheres they fell apart by themselves. He also showed that 20 men could not hold a piston in a cylinder once the air had been evacuated from one end of it" (Biographical Encyclopedia of Scientists).In 1663, Guericke built the first electrical friction machine by rotating a sulfur globe against a cloth, describing it here for the first time. As earlier noted, Guericke additionally describes and illustrates the earliest electric generating machine, one of his own making, with which he "generates the first visible and audible electric discharges" (Honeyman). "This remarkable work on experimental philosophy ranks next to Gilbert's in the number and importance of the electrical discoveries described" (Wheeler 170). CONDITION & DETAILS: Amsterdam: Johannes Jansson Waesberge. Folio (313 × 196 mm). [4], xvi, [244pp.], 4 [index], 1 [errata], 5. Illustration: Engraved title, extra engraved title, 2 double-page engraved folding plates (including that of the Magdeburg experiment), 7 full-page plates (with plate XVIII repeated) and 24 large engravings 9 of which are full page (and some of which are inclusive of a number of figures appear in text). Lacking only engraved portrait. Includes Index rerum and the often absent errata leaf. Provenance: Bears the following inscription on front end paper: "Herren Prof. Dr. Lorentz in in dankbarer Verehrung W. Voigt" ("Prof. Dr. Lorentz in grateful adoration W. Voigt"). Voigt and Lorentz corresponded regularly beginning in 1883, with their personal and scientific friendship deepening when they met for the first time in Gottingen in 1897. Lorentz's published correspondence makes evident that he and Voigt frequently exchanged letters. Note too that "The Lorentz Transformation, considered essential to the Theory of Special Relativity, was invented by Voigt in 1887, adopted by Lorentz in 1904, and baptized by Poincare in 1906. Einstein probably picked it up from Voigt directly" (Engelhardt, On the Origin of the Lorentz Transformation). Handsomely bound in full mottled calf with 6 raised bands at the spine, gilt-tooled compartments, and a red morocco, gilt-lettered spine label. Tight, solid, and clean. Very slight and light water stain at corner of title and to the following 20 pages. Occasional light spot here and there, all light and minor. Save for missing portrait, near fine condition.

        Fables nouvelles, dédiées au Roy. Avec un discours sur la fable. Paris, Gregoire Dupuis, 1719. 4to. With engraved allegorical frontispiece by N. Tardieu after Charles Coypel, engraved vignette on title-page by C. Simeneau after N. Vleughels and 100 engraved illustrations to the fables by and after Claude Gillot, Charles Antoine Coypel, Jean Ranc, Bernard Picart, Jean Baptiste Massé, etc. Contemporary mottled calf, gold-tooled spine.

      Cioranescu 36530; Cohen-De Ricci, p. 594 ("Très belle édition, rare et recherchée"); Fabula Docet 94; Fürstenberg 74; Lewine 289; Populus, Gillot Cat, 31-98; Sander 1095. First edition of a famous French fable book, beautifully illustrated by the most famous artists of the day. The book contains 100 fables by Antoine Houdar de La Motte (1672-1731), modelled after the fables by Jean de La Fontaine, the most important French fable author ever. Of special interest is La Motte-Houdart's introductory essay on the genre of the fable, setting out rules to be followed, based on the classical ideals of true likeness, unity and proper arrangement. He intends to rival both Aesop and La Fontaine.The book at the same time represents a milestone in French book illustration, introducing Rococo miniatures or vignettes, including 62 by the interior and costume designer Claude Gillon, one of his few works as a book-illustrator. The "Actor's fable" is dedicated to him.Binding rubbed with a few small defects; some slight staining and thumbing. Very good copy.

        Recit de ce qu'il y a de plus considerable aux affaires des eglises reformées des vallées de Piedmont, depuis les massacres de l'année 1655. [Amsterdam, Abraham Wolfgang(?), after 1663]. 4to in 2s. Contemporary wrappers.

      Bibliografia Valdese 1672; STCN (1 copy); Tiele, Pamfletten 5035; WorldCat (3 copies); not in Knuttel. Rare copy of this pamphlet on the massacre of the Waldensians in Piedmont in 1655. It is probably a second edition as the title-pages mentions: "Jouxte la copie impriméé à Haerlem 1663", though no copies from this previous Haarlem edition are known. The Waldensians are a Christian movement with its origins in the later Middle Ages in France and they were persecuted as heretics from the 12th century onwards. From the early 17th century they were considered as early forerunners of the Reformation. In 1655 the Duke of Savoy commanded the Waldensians of Piedmont to attend Mass or leave in 20 days. The remaining Waldensians were massacred, causing indignation throughout Europe.Some waterstains in the upper margins; wrappers with slightly rubbed edges and spine restored with cello tape. Otherwise a good copy of this rare pamphlet on the Piedmont massacre.

        Verhael Van den wonderlijken Oproer , Voorgevallen in de Province van Malanbruino, gelegen een graed bezuiden het Eyland Pines: ende hoe de zelve is gestilt

      N.d.: n.p., 1672. Square octavo, 8 pp., paper browned, but very good; bound in modern boards with red spine, bookplate, ink title on front and spine. A degree south of the Isle of Pines. A rare and important seventeenth-century Dutch work about the imaginary land of "Mallanbruino" which, it is claimed, lies just to the south of Henry Neville's famous Isle of Pines. The title of this intriguing work literally translates as "Story of the remarkable turmoil, which occurred in the province of Mallanbruino, which lays a degree south of the Island of Pines, and how it was suppressed". The significant detail is that in Neville's story the small but fertile Isle of Pines is famously 'near to the Coast of Terra Australis, Incognita', suggesting that the author of this Dutch story set his story not only in the same region, but perhaps even on the fabled mainland itself: Mallanbruino thus becomes a little-known, and all but unregarded example of seventeenth-century Dutch Australiana. Neville's work was first published in 1668 and appeared in Dutch translation soon thereafter. The Isle of Pines was a sensation, not least because of its licentious depiction of the hero of the tale, George Pine, sleeping with all four of the women with whom he was stranded. This short piece capitalised on its success, and takes the form of a dialogue in which a bored Dutch soldier on guard duty named Gijsbert tells his colleagues of the two years he spent in the imaginary province, and of the ideal society he found there. His friends are initially sceptical, but as he sketches in more and more detail they become quite taken with the land he describes, and how it is protected from the neighbouring lands with the novel (and very Dutch) expedient of being able to be temporarily flooded. Only rarely offered on the market, this work forms a minor but interesting link in the long history of seventeenth-century Dutch exploration of the west Australian coast.

        The American physitian; or a treatise of the roots, plants, trees, shrubs, fruit, herbs, &c. growing in the English plantations in America

      London: J. C. for William Crook, 1672. London: J. C. for William Crook, 1672. <p>Hughes, William (d. 1683). The American physitian; Or, a treatise of the roots, plants, trees, shrubs, fruit, herbes &c. growing in the English plantations in America. 12mo. [22], 159, [7]pp. London: J. C. for William Crook, 1672. 140 x 80 mm. Sheep ca. 1672, hinges repaired preserving most of the spine, corners repaired; boxed. Minor browning and foxing, a few leaves with marginal chips (not affecting text), but very good. 17th century initials &#147;H.M.&#148; on the title; early 19th century inscriptions on front pastedown.</p><p> First Edition of the earliest work in English on the medicinal virtues of North American tropical plants. This is the first copy I have seen in fifty years of specializing in the history of medicine and science; it was very surprising to find a classic on early American medicine that was completely unknown to me after 50 years in the trade. Had I known of this work I would most certainly have included it in my 1991 revised and expanded fifth edition of &#147;Garrison-Morton&#148;. It definitely deserves a citation there alongside John Josselyn&#146;s work. An imperfect copy sold in the 1970s is the only copy sold at auction during the past fifty years. </p><p>Hughes&#146;s work was published the same year as John Josselyn&#146;s New-Englands Rarities Discovered, which Garrison-Morton (no. 1826.1) calls &#147;the first detailed account of the natural history and botany of North America.&#148; Based on first-hand observations made in the West Indies, Hughes&#146;s work &#147;contributed greatly to the spread of the American indigenous use of plants &#145;either for Meat or Medicine&#146;&#148; (Wilson & Hurst, p. 55). However, apart from his authorship of The American Physitian and two pioneering works on gardening and horticulture, very little is known about Hughes&#146;s life. Evidence suggests that he began his career in 1651 with a privateering voyage to the West Indies, during which he traveled to Barbados, St. Kitts, Cuba, Jamaica and mainland Florida. He appears to have spent a good deal of time visiting British plantations on Jamaica and Barbados, where he observed and made descriptions of a large number of New World tropical plants including potatoes, yams, maize (&#147;the wheat of America&#148;), bananas, avocadoes (&#147;Spanish pears&#148;), chili peppers, watermelons, sugarcane, guavas, prickly pears, coconuts and manioc. The title of Hughes&#146;s work consciously references Culpeper&#146;s popular herbal, The English Physitian (1653), and like Culpeper Hughes wrote for a lay audience: &#147;If you expect to find [my book] deckt up with fine Metaphysical Notions and Expressions, or stuft with hard or strange words . . . you are likely to be mistaken, and quite beside the Cushion, for you will finde it only in plain and easy Terms, such as I myself best understand.&#148; </p><p>Hughes&#146;s accounts of the plants&#146; virtues make delightful reading: Potatoes &#147;chear the heart and are provocative of bodily lust&#148;; the juice of sugarcane &#147;drieth and cleaneth the stomach, and smootheth the roughness of the Breast, Lungs, Arteries&#148;; prickly pear fruits &#147;coloreth the Urine of a purple-colour&#148; and as a wound dressing are &#147;better than any preparation that could have been made from a well-furnished Chest&#148;; bananas are &#147;exhilarating and provoking to Venery&#148; as well as &#147;good against a Flux.&#148; Hughes also described encounters with some of the local fauna, including white coral, sea-urchins and a 14-foot alligator, which he and his party &#147;dispacht with our Oars&#148; after running aground on a coral reef. The last third of Hughes&#146;s work is devoted to the medicinal properties of chocolate (the &#147;American nectar&#148;), which he praised for its &#147;wonderful faculty of quenching thirst, allaying Hectick Heats, [and] of nourishing and fatning the body&#148;; he also claimed it to be &#147;good against all coughs, shortness of breath&#148; and &#147;excellent against Consumptions.&#148; Wing H3332.

Small area of edgewear on back cover, light toning, but a very good and unusually tall copy. Bookplates of the High Legh Library, Edward Neville da Costa Andrade (1887-1971) and Haskell F. Norman. </p><p>First Edition. Along with Malpighi, Grew is considered the founder of plant anatomy; his pioneering investigations into how organs and tissues are formed during plant growth marked the beginning of efforts to link plant structure and development. As a physician, Grew was originally interested in the structures of animal life, but turned to plant anatomy because, unlike animal anatomy, it had not yet been investigated. Anatomy of Vegetables, his first book, contained accurate observations of the structures of wood, bark and roots, and introduced the term &#147;parenchyma.&#148; Grew also described fruits, seeds and flowers, distinguishing in the last the calyx, stamen and pistils, and he was the first to observe that plants had two sexes. The title-page gives 1672 as the date of publication, but the printing was completed by 7 December 1671, when four copies were delivered to the Royal Society for presentation. </p><p>This copy was once owned by British physicist E. N. da C. Andrade, Quain Professor of Physics at University College, London, who collaborated with Ernest Rutherford on experiments to determine the wavelengths of gamma rays from radium.

Fine, crisp copy. </p><p>First Edition, Oxford Issue of one of the foundation works of neurology. Willis&#39;s anatomical and clinical study On the soul of brutes is based upon the matured version of his theory of the soul, a refutation of Cartesian theory. Unlike Descartes, Willis believed that man has two souls, an immortal and uniquely human rational soul, and a mortal animal soul shared by all members of the animal kingdom. In his discussion of the sensitive soul Willis recapitulated the neurological concepts he had introduced in Cerebri anatome, particularly localization, and extended them to invertebrates with some of the first detailed dissections made of the oyster, earthworm and lobster. He attributed a wide range of diseases to neurological disturbances, among them headache, lethargy, melancholy, apoplexy, frenzy and paralysis, but recognized the difference between the symptoms of organic brain disease from those of mental illness, which he attributed to disordered animal spirits. He gave what is probably the first account of general paralysis of the insane (Part II, ch. 9), as well as the first description of schizophrenia (Part I, ch. 8), and described the auditory phenomenon now known as "paracusis of Willis" in his chapter on hearing (Part I, ch. 14). "Willis&#39;s ideas of cerebral localization were the impetus for a line of experimental work traceable into the early nineteenth century. His notion of the corporeal soul in the nervous system, and the disorders to which it was prone, was both a contribution to comparative psychology and the beginnings of modern concepts of neurology. His speculations on the involuntary functions of the &#39;intercostal&#39; and &#39;vagal&#39; nerves provided the foundation of our knowledge of the autonomic nervous system" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography).</p><p>Wing lists two quarto and two octavo "editions," each with a different imprint. The two quarto "editions" are actually issues, as they consist of identical sheets bound with different title-leaves (Oxford and London imprints).

        Naaukeurige beschryvinge van Malabar en Choromandel, der zelver aangrenzende ryken, en het machtige eyland Ceylon. Nevens een omstandige en grondigh doorzochte ontdekking en wederlegginge van de afgoderye der Oost-Indische heydenen. .. Zijnde hier by gevoeght een Malabaarsche spraak-konst.

      Amsterdam, Johannes Janssonius van Waasberge en Johannes van Someren, 1672.3 volumes in 1. Folio. Contemporary blindtooled vellum (1 hinge restored), with modern ties. With title printed in red and black with printer's device, engraved allegorical title-page, coat of arms, 1 (of 2) engraved portrait by A. Blooteling of the authour (missing the portrait of Geraerd Hulst), 3 plates depicting Malabar characters, 34 engraved maps and plates (mostly double-page), and 52 engravings in the text. (10),198;132 (=232);188,(11) pp.* First edition.- The book by Filippus Baelde (1632-1672) is divided into three parts: the first is a description of coastal India, the second treats Ceylon, and the third is a discussion of Indian religion. In the first two parts he describes the towns, their trade, the surrounding countryside, and the people, and he devotes a large amount of space and much detail to the rise of Portuguese power in the various parts of India and to the later Dutch conquest of many of those places. In part two, for example, he uses about 150 pages to tell the story of the Portuguese conquest of Ceylon, Portuguese relations with the king of Kandy, Dutch negotiations with Kandy beginning with Spilbergen's visit in 1602, the Dutch conquest of Portuguese Ceylon, the VOC's continued difficulties with Kandy, the problems of governing Ceylon, and the attempts to reform the church there. Baldaeus' description of Hindu religion in part three depends heavily on Abraham Roger's work but also contains new information gained from his own observations' (Lach, Asia in the making of Europe, III, p.494). The fine plates and illustrations, in excellent impressions, represent the cities of Surat, Cochin, Tuticorin, Negapatam, Masulipatam, Galle, Negombo, etc., natives, costums, ceremonies, churches, fighting scenes, fortifications, elephant-hunt, etc. - A most important printed source for the establishment of Dutch power in Ceylon and south India. - A very fine copy.Tiele 70; Cat. NHSM I, p.240; Landwehr, VOC, 556; Goonetileke 1912.

        Catholicks no idolaters. Or A full refutation of Doctor Stillingfleet's unjust charge of idolatry against the Church of Rome.

      [London], o. Dr., 1672.. (32), 48, 448 SS. Gesprenkelter Lederband der Zeit mit blindgepr. Deckelfileten (Rücken restauriert). 8vo.. Wohl einzige Ausgabe. - Der englische Theologe Th. Godden (1624-88), nach Studien in Oxford und Cambridge zum Katholizismus konvertiert und in Lissabon ordiniert, war als Kontroversschriftsteller bekannt. "In 1671 he was engaged in a controversy with Stillingfleet, upon the question whether salvation was attainable by converts from protestantism, as well as persons bred in the catholic religion" (DNB). Das aus diesem Streit hervorgegangene vorliegende Werk ist eine Entgegnung auf Stillingfleets 1671 erschienene Schrift "A Discourse of the Idolatry practis'd in the Church of Rome'. Die DNB nennt für Goddens Erwiderung noch eine vorausgegangene Ausgabe von 1671, die allerdings nirgends nachgewiesen werden konnte und deren Existenz zweifelhaft ist; als Vorlage für die Ann Arbor-Mikroverfilmung ("Early English books") wurde die vorliegende Ausgabe (Cambridger Exemplar) herangezogen. - Titel mit Spuren von 2 unschön geschwärzten Stempeln, sonst sauber und wohlerhalten. Selten; in deutschen und internationalen Auktionsverzeichnissen seit 1950 kein Werk des Verfassers nachgewiesen. - DNB VIII, 29, 1. OCLC 12574877. Wing² G198. Clancy (Engl. Catholic books) 420.

        An Exact Survey of the Affairs of the United Netherlands comprehending more fully than any thing yet extant, all the particulars of that subject. In twelve heads, mentioned in the address to the reader.

      Printed for Peter Parker 1672 - FIRST EDITION, lacking the advertisement leaf (A4), some browning, pp. [vi, of viii], 208, 12mo, contemporary calf, a little rubbed, the Macclesfield copy with bookplate and blindstamp, sound An extremely rare account (politics, economics, military, &c) of the Dutch, by one who had a poor opinion of them, though a respect for their prowess. &#145;The Hollanders being a People that seemed born to fill the last Age of the World with Disturbance, and this with Noise.&#146; An early note on the flyleaf reads: &#145;Anthony Wood says this Book was written by one Heath educated at the University School . but having spent his fortune as a Royalist he died poor in Bartholomews Hospital of a Consumption & Dropsie 1664 & left a family unprovided for .&#146; 1664 may be a mistake for 1674, since the author (who tells us he is old) takes events up to 1665, or the breathing space between the first and second Anglo-Dutch wars. The transcription of the title-page of the BL copy (the only copy) in ESTC suggests that the title-page is defective on the right hand side. (ESTC R177787)
