He was impressed with the idea that life was a slow-burning flame, and he often pointed out the analogy between living processes and the burning of a candle. It was in the present tract, however that he gave special attention to the theme, insisting upon the term flamma vitalis (pp.105 et seq). In many places he approached the modern theory of oxidation" [Fulton]. While the book was in the press Boyle as an afterthought decided to add more material. This was to be be inserted in middle of sheets already printed and this has resulted in an interrupted sequence of gatherings with almost 200 pages introduced between leaves K1 and K2 and with the gathering x (the last of the of extra material) coming long before gathering P, the last gathering of the book proper. The book was reissued in 1673 with a cancelled title page dated for that year.

        Experimenta Nova (ut vocantur) Magdeburgica de Vacuo Spatio Primùm à R.P. Gaspare Schotto . . . nunc verò ab ipso Auctore Perfectiùs edita, variisque aliis Experimentis aucta. Quibus accesserunt simul certa quaedam De Aeris Pondere circa Terram; de Virtutibus Mundanis, & Systemate Mundi Planetario; sicut & de Stellis Fixis, ac Spatio illo Immenso, quod tàm intra quam extra eas funditur.

      Amsterdam: Johanned Jansson Waesberge, 1672. First edition, and a fine copy, of one of the great classics of science. "A book of prime importance in electrical discovery, air-pressure and the vacuum pump" (Dibner). Guericke proved the existence of a vacuum through his famous experiment, illustrated by one of the double-page plates. "At Ratisbon in 1654 Guericke had performed one of the most dramatic experiments in the history of science, when, before the Imperial Diet, he showed how two teams of eight horses each could not separate a bronze pair of hemispheres from which he had exhausted the air" (ibid.). To create the vacuum, Guericke invented the air-pump, and in a series of experiments that followed he demonstrated the weight and elasticity of air. The air-pump became of fundamental importance for the study of the physical properties of gases. Guericke also demonstrated electrical attraction and repulsion, the discharging power of points, and constructed the first electrical generator. "Guericke constructed a spherical rotor of sulphur mounted on a crank; its rotation and contact upon it generated the first visible and audible electric sparks" (ibid.). As the Wheeler Gift catalogue remarks, "This remarkable work on experimental philosophy ranks next to Gilbert's in the number and importance of the electrical discoveries described. Electric conduction and repulsion, the discharging power of points, the dissipation of charge by flames, the light due to electrification, the crepitating noises of small sparks are all recognized". Guericke's experiments were motivated by his profound Copernican cosmological views on the nature and composition of space, which are fully set forth in the present work. Provenance: This is a Guericke family copy (the Dutch version of his name, 'Gericke', written on front free endpaper - Guericke's father was named Hans Gericke). "Guericke had been preoccupied ever since his student days at Leiden with the question of the definition of space. A convinced Copernican, he was particularly concerned with three fundamental questions: (1) What is the nature of space? Can empty space exist, or is space always filled and empty space only a spatium imaginarium, a logical abstraction? (2) How can individual heavenly bodies affect each other across space, and how are they moved? (3) Is space, and therefore the heavenly bodies enclosed in it, bounded or unbounded? "Descartes's conception of space and matter as equivalent and his denial of a vacuum led Guericke to propose an experiment designed to resolve the old conflict between plenists and vacuists. Guericke posited that if the air were pumped out of a strong container and no other new material allowed to take its place the vessel would implode if Descartes's assertions were true. Soon after he returned from Osnabruck in 1647 Guericke made a suction pump using a cylinder and piston to which he added two flap valves; he then used this apparatus to pump water out of a well-caulked beer cask. Air entered the cask, however, as was evidenced by whistling noises. When Guericke repeated the experiment with the beer cask sealed within a second larger one that he had also filled with water, the water that he pumped out was replaced by water seeping in from the larger vessel. "In an attempt to solve the sealing problem Guericke ordered the construction of a hollow copper sphere with an outlet at the bottom. He pumped the air directly out of this apparatus which thereupon imploded. This result would seem to indicate that Descartes was right; but Guericke still thought otherwise on the basis of his earlier experiments. He had a new apparatus made, and with this his experiment succeeded. Guericke thus invented the air pump, or, rather, discovered the pumping capacity of air. He had thought that the air within the vessel would sink, as had the water in his previous devices, and that it would be evacuated from the bottom; later experiments, however, in which the outlet was placed at arbitrary points on the copper sphere proved that the air left in the container during the process of evacuation was distributed evenly throughout the interior space. "This discovery of the elasticity of the air represents perhaps the most important result of Guericke's experiments. From it he was led to investigate the decrease of the density of the air with height and to theorize concerning empty space beyond the atmosphere of heavenly bodies; to study variations of air pressure corresponding to changes in the weather (taking mean air pressure to correspond to a water column twenty Magdeburg ells high, he succeeded in 1660 in making barometric weather forecasts); to propose systematic weather reporting through a network of observation stations; to come to know the ponderability of air within air; and finally, to draw further conclusions about a variety of phenomena connected with vacuums, most of which he demonstrated experimentally, especially the work capacity of air, by which he refuted the theory of horror vacui. "The most famous of Guericke's public experiments is the one of the Magdeburg hemispheres, in which he placed together two copper hemispheres, milled so that the edges fit together snugly. He then evacuated the air from the resulting sphere and showed that a most heavy weight could not pull them apart. Contrary to legend, the demonstration was performed with a team of horses for the first time in Magdeburg in 1657 (not Regensburg in 1654) and repeated at court in Berlin in 1663. Guericke also made other, less dramatic, public demonstrations of the effective- ness of air pressure on several occasions in Regensburg; these Regensburg experiments were reported by Gaspar Schott in Mechanica hydraulico-pneumarica (1657) and Technica curiosa (1664), and were supplemented with additional information that Guericke communicated by letter. "Schott's books as well as other foreign publications of Guericke's experiments (for example, works of M. Cornaeus and S. Lubieniecky) stimulated Huygens and Boyle, among others, to repeat and extend the experiments and to set to work upon an improved air pump. Guericke himself was occupied with the same project; he improved his pump with hydraulic sealing and devised a stationary installation for it (it occupied two floors of his house). In 1663 Guericke developed a portable pump modeled on one of Boyle's and constructed one especially for his visit to Berlin in that year. (Three examples of this type of pump survive, one each in Munich, Lund, and Brunswick.) "Guericke's experimental work, however, represents only one facet of his attempt to reach a complete physical world view. He drew upon his Copernicanism to construct the foundations for such a system. Guericke's celestial physics were further based upon the notion that the heavenly bodies interacted with each other across empty space through magnetic force; here he turned to the earlier work of Gilbert and Kepler. Their magnetic hypotheses had been refuted by Athanasius Kircher (in Magnes sive De arre magnerica, 1641); joining the argument, Guericke sought to modify Gilbert's magnetism experiments by making use of materials mimicking the actual composition of the earth. To this end Guericke cast a sphere composed of a variety of minerals with a large proportion of sulfur -- in later experiments he used pure sulfur -- and showed that it possessed the virrures mundanae, that is, such powers as attraction and the ability to move other bodies. By rubbing the sphere of sulfur, Guericke had actually produced static electricity; but since he did not recognize these electrical effects as special phenomena, but as demonstrations of the virtutes of a celestial body, he cannot properly be credited with the invention of the first electrical machine. "Having dealt with the problems of empty space and the movement of heavenly bodies, Guericke concerned himself further with the question of the boundedness of space and the number of worlds therein. He conceived of fixed stars as suns with planetary systems, each of which exerts a sphere of force (orbis virrutis, sphaera acrivitaris); these systems border on each other and do not interact -- each heavenly body rather possesses a specific center of gravity for a specific virrus conservariva, which he interpreted as its source of cohesion. Thus, in opposition to Aristotelian cosmography, an immaterial boundary of space becomes inconceivable. Giordano Bruno had already speculated about an infinite universe containing an infinite number of worlds, but his ideas had been unacceptable because only God was considered infinite -- all of God's creation must be finite. Guericke overcame this objection by re- defining the notion of nothingness. By his reasoning, empty space as a mere receptacle for God's creations is nothingness and is not created. Empty space is therefore independent of God and the created universe -- indeed, it precedes the latter. Therefore empty space cannot be bounded. Neither can the number of worlds be bounded, although such a number is not infinite (since there are no infinite numbers). Likewise it is not limited, since there is no greatest number and no end to the series of numbers. Infinite space is thus a conceptual possibility. "Such speculations about the heavenly bodies quite naturally led Guericke to the study of astronomy. He explained planetary orbits as exactly circular and concentric, effected by the rotating orbis virtutis of the sun, and interpreted the apparent eccentricities as a result of the different densities of the atmosphere" (DSB).

Un alone interessa la parte inferiore del volume e delle tavole. Bruniture e sporadiche fioriture.

[M095] Opere di notevole rarità. Henri de La Tour d'Auvergne-Bouillon, visconte di Turenne, noto anche col nome di Grand Turenne (Sedan, 1611 - Salzbach, 1675), generale francese, fu nominato da Luigi XIV Maresciallo di Francia nel 1651. Durante la Guerra dei trent'anni contro la Spagna fu agli ordini di Luigi II di Borbone-Condé e prese parte alle battaglie di Friburgo (1644) e di Nördlingen (1645). Seguì inizialmente Luigi II nella sua ribellione contro il re e il cardinale Mazzarino, salvo poi riconciliarsi con quest'ultimo e combattere contro il suo precedente condottiero, passato al comando delle truppe spagnole. Nella battaglia di Bléneau del 7 aprile 1652 Turenne sconfisse proprio le milizie iberiche comandate da Luigi, ottenendo il perdono definitivo di Luigi XIV. Nel 1658 sconfisse nuovamente gli spagnoli presso Dunkerque. Nel 1660 fu nominato Maresciallo generale degli accampamenti e delle armate del re. Durante la Guerra d'Olanda fu battuto dalle truppe imperiali del Montecuccoli e nel 1673 fu obbligato a riattraversare il Reno. Ebbe la sua rivincita nel giugno del 1674 nella battaglia di Sinzheim, sconfiggendo nuovamente le truppe imperiali in Alsazia nella Battaglia di Entzheim, salvo poi ritirarsi per inferiorità di uomini e mezzi. Contrariamente agli usi militari del tempo, non esitò a contrattaccare in pieno inverno; il 27 dicembre riprese Belfort e il 29 entrò a Mulhouse. Le truppe imperiali si erano stabilite a Turckheim, in una valle dei Vosgi: la sua strategia consistette nel sorprendere il nemico attaccandolo dalla montagna. Egli salì sulla città di Thann, fiancheggiò il castello di Engelburg e stabilì il suo acquartieramento nel luogo ancora oggi noto come Camp Turenne. Spinse quindi le sue truppe lungo la cresta e giunse sopra il campo nemico il 5 gennaio 1675, cogliendolo di sorpresa e costringendolo a ripassare il Reno. Luigi XIV gli riconfermò il comando nella campagna del 1675, nel corso della quale Turenne trovò la morte, colpito da una palla di cannone nella battaglia di Salzbach. Il re gli concesse l'onore postumo di essere seppellito nell'abazia di Saint-Denis, dove venivano tumulati i re di Francia. Napoleone Bonaparte, che aveva delle qualità militari del Turenne grande considerazione, ne fece trasferire le spoglie nella chiesa di Saint-Louis des Invalides a Parigi.

        Fiestas de la S. Iglesia metropolitana y patriarcal de Sevilla, al nuevo culto del senor Rey S. Fernando el Tercero de Castilla y de Leon; Seville

      widow of Nicolas Rodriguez, 1671 [1672]. Folio (292 x 205 mm). Etched frontispiece by Mathias Arteaga after Fr. de Herrera, etched portrait of Ferdinand III by Arteaga after Murillo, portrait of Charles II of Spain by Herrera, 9 etched plates of emblematic devices by Francisco de Arteaga, Lucas Valdes and Luisa Morales, 9 etched folding views and plans of and in the church at Seville by the Arteagas and Juan de Valdes Leal. 18th-century Spanish mottled calf. A few small scuffs to binding; six folding plates with old repairs to tears crossing images, a very occasional pale dampstain at end. Provenance: pale indistinct inkstamp on title; purchased from Paul and Marianne Gourary, 1964. FIRST EDITION: "the best illustrated Iberian book, by all odds, contained in the Harvard Collection" (Hofer). Celebrating Ferdinand III's (1199-1252) canonization by Pope Clement X, the work was commissioned by the Cathedral of Seville, and the text written by the poet, chronicler and translator Fernando de la Torre Farfán. Illustrating his text and documenting the elaborate festivities were the best Seville artists of the age. The 1671 procession followed the Corpus Christi model, with bell-ringing, fireworks, and lavish street adornment. "The volume is interesting not only as a curious piece of local history, but as being illustrated wholly by artists of Seville. The Triunfo and the other decorations, in the heavy overloaded style of the day, were designed and executed under the direction of the painter, Juan de Valdés Leal (1630-1690), and the sculptor, Bernardo Simon de Pineda, the former himself engraving two of the plates" (William Stirling Maxwell).

Later blue/grey paper wrappers.

      Knuttel 10600; M. Reinders, Printed pandemonium, pp. 195-199; not in Ford; Gove; Scheckter. First and only edition of a 1672 political pamphlet in the form of a spin-off from Henry Neville's very popular 1668 story of a voyage to the imaginary utopian/dystopian Isle of Pines . The present story is written as a conversation between three militia men on watch discussing the turbulent politics of 1672. One tells of his (fictitious) voyage and several years residence on a (fictitious) utopian island called Mallanbruino in the South Pacific. He says it is one degree south of the Isle of Pines. On Mallanbruino, the industrious people were oppressed by an emperor but rose up and defeated him with help from a prince, who also replaced the evil regents. They note the remarkable similarities to events in the Dutch Republic. The island then set up a new and fairer democratic representative political system, bringing peace and happiness to the island. The three men conclude that the Dutch Republic should introduce such a system.Some spots and a small restoration to the extremities of the title-page, otherwise in good condition. A fascinating but little-known pamphlet building political propaganda around a story related to the popular imaginary voyage to the Isle of Pines.
