        DESCRIPTION GEOGRAPHIQUE ET HISTORIQUE DES COSTES DE L'AMERIQUE SEPTENTRIONALE. AVEC L'HISTOIRE NATURELLE DU PAÏS

      Paris: Claude Barbin; Louis Billaine, 1672.. Two volumes in one. [32],267,[1]; 480[i.e.,486],[6]pp. Lacks the map and plates. 16mo. 19th-century red morocco, gilt, gilt inner dentelles, a.e.g., by Bauzonnet. Hinges lightly rubbed, minor wear to boards. Very minor scattered foxing. Last few leaves lightly tanned. Very good plus. A lovely copy of this very rare work, one of the first detailed descriptions of Acadia. "The author gives an account of the long and unsuccessful attempt to colonize the territory between Cape Canso and Cape Rosier, of which he had been appointed Governor by the French king. The second volume is devoted largely to the cod-fishery, the natural history of the country, and the manners and life of the Indians. ... The country over which M. Denys claimed to exercise jurisdiction under the King of France extended from Cape Canso, at the eastern extremity of Nova Scotia, to Cape Rosier at the mouth of the Penobscot Bay. This country the Governor explored and surveyed himself, and hence his book is among the best and most authentic materials we have relating to those Provinces" - Church. Two issues are noted, one published by Claude Barbin and one by Louis Billaine, though both texts are identical. This set has the Barbin imprint in the first volume and the Billaine imprint in the second. Volume two has the title HISTOIRE NATURELLE DES PEUPLES, DES ANIMAUX, DES ARBRES, & PLANTES DE L'AMERIQUE SEPTENTRIONALE, & DE SES DIVERS CLIMATS.... The map is a rarity in any circumstance, and the plates are nearly as scarce, and virtually never are present. Page four of the "Avertissement" in the first volume announces a map and "quelques figures des choses qui concernent la pesche," which Harrisse indicates he has not found in any of the eight copies of the work which he has examined. "This is a very scarce work, especially as regards the map and plates" - Church. A very rare work, this is the first copy we have handled if our almost forty years in the trade. The last copy we find offered by a dealer is Nebenzahl in 1979 ($18,000). SABIN 19615n, 19615. GAGNON I:150. CHURCH 616, 616n. HARRISSE 136, 137. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 672/78, 672/81. JCB (3)III:235.

        Mr Hobbs's State of Nature Considered; in a Dialogue between Philautus and Timothy. To which are added Five Letters from the Author of the Grounds, and Occasions of the Contempt of the Clergy

      London: Printed by E.T. and R.H. for Nath. Brooke, at the Sign of the Angel in Cornhil, near the Royal Exchange, 1672. (HOBBES, THOMAS) First edition. 8vo. [24], 165, [11], 123 pp. Contemporary sheep, spine chipped at head and tail, joints sound, interior clean. Wing E-57 . Eachard (1636-1697) was an English clergyman and satirist from Suffolk who studied at Catherine Hall, Cambridge, of which he became Master in 1675. He was created D.D. by royal decree in 1675 and was elected vice-chancellor of the university in 1679. Eachard was one of the leading critics of Hobbes and "Hobbism" in the seventeenth century, and here is his first salvo against Hobbes' theory of the human nature in its natural state as Hobbes expounded it in his Leviathan (1651). Eachard followed this attack with another dialogue in the following year, entitled Some Opinions of Mr. Hobbs Considered in a Second Dialogue Between Philautus and Timothy

Theophilus Garencières (1610–c.1680) was a French physician who came to England with the French ambassador in the 1650s and settled here, leaving the Catholic church, and publishing books mostly on medical matters. His edition of Nostradamus gives the French text of each quatrain followed by the English translation and some usually short but useful notes.

        Experimenta Nova (ut vocantur) Magdeburgica De Vacuo Spatio

      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 below).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: Experimenta nova Magdeburgica de vacuo spatio [New Magdeburg Experiments Concerning Empty Space]. Amsterdam: Johanned Jansson Waesberge, 1672. 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). BINDING & INTERIOR: 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.

        Resolutionum criminalium Petri Caballi ... centuriae tres

      Venetiis : Apud Bertanos, 1672. Folio extra (32 cm; 12.125"). [14], 362 [i.e. 374], [66], 269, [71], 48, [12] p. 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. This dense work on criminal law begins with a title-page in red and black with type in a great variety of point sizes of roman and italic. The text is printed in double-column format and each "century" begins with a large woodcut headpiece and ends with a small woodcut tailpiece. This edition, "Hac quarta editione pluribus mendis expurgatae," has several very good indices of "arguments," words, and "things. Later limp, but rather stiff, vellum. Inkstains on bottom edge of closed volume; some captions a little shaved, half-title a little tattered. Remarkably solid and => clean.

The first edition was published in Naples by C. Vitale in 1599 with the title: Dell'historia naturale di Ferrante Imperato ... libri XXVIII ... The woodcuts in the original edition are reproduced in our edition and depict mainly minerals and rocks, marine organisms, plants, snakes and insects. Ferrante Imperato (1525? – 1615?), an apothecary of Naples, illustrated Historia Naturale with his own cabinet of curiosities displayed at Palazzo Gravina in Naples; the missing folding engraving became the first pictorial representation of a Renaissance humanist's displayed natural history research collection. The collection, which this published catalogue made famous in the seventeenth century ranged widely, embracing embraced a herbarium, shells, birds, sea creatures, in addition to the fossils, clays, minerals and metallic ores, marble and gem species.

        A Brief Historical discourse of the Origin and Growth of Heraldry, Demonstrating upon what rational Foundations, that Noble and Heroick Science is established

      London, Printed by E. Tyler and R. Holt, and ar to be sold Tho. Passinger..., 1672. FIRST AND ONLY EDITION. Small 8vo, 164 x 104 mms., pp. [viii], 143 [144 blank], later (probably 20th century) full calf, paper label on spine, new end-papers; small pink stain on title-page but a very good copy. Thomas Philipot (d. 1782) was the elder son of John Philipot (c. 1589 - 1645), the Somerset Herald. Thomas inherited part of the large collection of heraldic material that his father had accumulated at his death, and it is possible, even likely, that this is partly if not entirely the work of his father. Thomas published under his own name in 1659 his father's treatise, Villare Cantianum, or, Kent Surveyed and Illustrated. A reviewer in volume 62 of The Gentleman's Magazine (1792) said of the work that "It seems one of those foolish books which attempts to discover the Art of Heraldry in all the symbols and hieorglyphicks of the antient nations"; later, Lowdnes described it as a "pedantic little work."

        Kurtzer Entwurff von Neu-Niederland und Guajana [Guyana]

      An important work for Dutch colonization of New York and Guyana. 1672. Leipzig. Rikschischen Buchladen. In 4to (197 mm x 155 mm). 10 ff. + 144 + 4 ff. Fine modern quarter morocco over marbled boards, spine lettered in gilt. Marginal repairs to one preliminary leaf affecting a few letters of text browned as always, else a very good copy of ample margins. Scarce first German edition; published after the first in Dutch of 1659. Keye?s work is important for the history for Dutch colonization in the New World, comparing the advantages for establishing in New York and Guyana. ?The author having an interest in the Colony of Guiana, to which he was attached as an officer, here attempts to show how much Guiana is superior to New Netherland for the purposes of colonisation, and so, to prove that false thesis, he generalises his theme and speaks of the advantages that warm countries have over cold ones? (Asher). Keye visited Guiana, of which he provides an excellent description, and which he was convinced was a better choice as a colony than New Netherland. However the point might be made that since he was an officer of the colony and stood to profit by its advancement, he was not impartial. Most of his information relating to New Netherland is negative and bent on demonstrating the inferiority of its situation compared with the warmer climate of the Caribbean. Keye's work was influential both in aiding Guiana and diverting attention from New Netherland. By the time this edition was issued, New Netherland was already lost to the British, making his comparison unnecessary; however, Keye?s work stands as an early description of New York from a Dutch perspective.

        The anatomy of vegetables begun. HFN copy

      Spencer Hickman London: Spencer Hickman, 1672. Grew, Nehemiah (1641-1712). The anatomy of vegetables begun, with a general account of vegetation founded thereon. 8vo. [32], 186, [22]pp. 3 folding engraved plates. London: Spencer Hickman, 1672. 163 x 96 mm. Contemporary sheep, red leather spine label, rebacked, corner repaired. 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. 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 ?parenchyma.? 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. 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. During his lifetime Andrade amassed an important collection of British 17th-century science texts. Dibner 21. Henrey 163; pp. 135-138. LeFanu, pp. 77-78. Morton, pp. 178-195. Norman 944.

        De Jure Naturae et Gentium Libri octo. Cum Gratia & Privilegio S. Regiae Majestatis Sueciae.

      Londini Scanorum (Lund), Adami Junghaus - Vitus Haberegger, 1672. 4to. Contemp. full vellum, contemp. faint handwritten title on spine. A few small spots to covers, otherwise fine. Titlepage in red/black. (20),1227,(9) pp. Internally clean and fine.. Scarce first edition, in a fine copy, of Pufendorf'sa main work, being a system of universal law in which he profoundly revised the natural law theories of Hobbes and Grotius. In his teaching, that the will of the state is but the sum of the individual wills that constitute it, he shows himself a precursor of Rousseau and of the "Contrat Social"."In the 'De jure naturae et gentium' Pufendorf took up in great measure the theories of Grotius and sought to complete them by means of the doctrines of Hobbes and of his own ideas. His first important point was that natural law does not extend beyond the limits of this life and that it confines itself to regulating external acts. He disputed Hobbes's conception of the state of nature and concluded that the state of nature is not one of war but of peace. But this peace is feeble and insecure, and if something else does not come to its aid it can do very little for the preservation of mankind.As regards public law Pufendorf, while recognizing in the state (civitas) a moral person (persona moralis), teaches that the will of the state is but the sum of the individual wills that constitute it, and that this association explains the state. In this a priori conception, in which he scarcely gives proof of historical insight, he shows himself as one of the precursors of Rousseau and of the Contrat social. Pufendorf powerfully defends the idea that international law is not restricted to Christendom, but constitutes a common bond between all nations because all nations form part of humanity.

        The anatomy of vegetables begun. HFN copy.

      Spencer Hickman, London 1672 - Grew, Nehemiah (1641-1712). The anatomy of vegetables begun, with a general account of vegetation founded thereon. 8vo. [32], 186, [22]pp. 3 folding engraved plates. London: Spencer Hickman, 1672. 163 x 96 mm. Contemporary sheep, red leather spine label, rebacked, corner repaired. 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. 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 "parenchyma." 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. 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. During his lifetime Andrade amassed an important collection of British 17th-century science texts. Dibner 21. Henrey 163; pp. 135-138. LeFanu, pp. 77-78. Morton, pp. 178-195. Norman 944.

        An Essay about the Origine & Virtues of Gems. Wherein are Propos'd and Historically Illustrated some Conjectures about the Consistence of the Matter of Precious Stones, and the Subjects wherein their chiefest Virtues reside

      London, Printed by William Godbid, and are to be sold by Moses Pitt at the White Hart in Little Britain, 1672. FIRST EDITION. Small 8vo, 155 x 92 mms., pp. [xvi], 180, 182 - 185, recently rebound in quarter dark maroon morocco, olive morocco label, marbled boards; a good copy in a rather unsympathetic binding. With the inscription in a later hand (probably 18th century) "ex Bibliotheca C. M. Richard D. [?Mark]" on the title-page. Boyle (1627 - 1691) came from a well-to-do family, and his early career was devoted to literature; he wrote an almost unreadable treatise called Aretology, devoted to moral theory and tried a number of literary genres. His romance, The Martyrdom of Theodora and of Didymus, mixes moral sentiments with narrative tropes in an unconvincing manner. However, when he turned to his science, he found his true metier, impressing the scientific community with his Sceptical Chymist (1661). In this work, Boyle argues that gems were formed by crystallization from a liquid after the earth was formed. He believed that metalline corpuscles were incorporated in the gems, which gave them colour and density. Fulton 96. Wing B 3947.

        EPISTLES OF SAINT PETER - PAPIRO BODMER VIII (EPISTOLAS DE SAN PEDRO - PAPIRO BODMER 8) (Fine Facsimile Illuminated Edition of the 12th-13th C. )

      Madrid: Testimonio. New. Hardcover. <p>BODMER VIII PAPYRUS, 155 x 142 mm. 36 numbered pages. Greek</p><p>In the Vatican Library there are eighteen fairly thick folios which contain St. Peter&#39;s epistles, which were the final part of an ancient codex written on papyrus (catalogue number P72) and which, according to the acceptable hypothesis put forward by M. Testuz, have at least 180 pages, most of which have been conserved. Indeed, the codex probably contained a broad anthology of texts which covered the apocryphal Birth of María (CANT 50) , the apocryphal correspondence between St. Peter and the Corinthians (CANT 211. IV) , the IXth Ode of Solomon, the Epistle of Judas, Meliton of Sardes&#39; Homily on Easter (CPG 1092) , a fragment of a hymn of his (CPG 1093.17) , Filea&#39;s Apologia (CPG 1672) and Psalms 33 and 34, finishing with St. Peter&#39;s Epistle. These texts, as listed, form the Bodmer V, X, XI, VII, XIII, XII, XX, IX, and VIII papyri. </p><p>The codex, which is roughly square in shape, is, on the whole, in good condition. In many cases, the margins appear to be complete, which meands that the original dimensions can be measured fairly precisely at around 160 x 145 mm. It was written by many hands, probably four, and it is believed that this took place between the beginning of the III Century and the first half of the IVth A. D. The bringing together of the various parts that make up the text must have taken place during the IVth Century. </p><p>The folios that make up the VIII Bodmer Papyrus were presented to Pope Paul VI by the Swiss collector Martin Bodmer in June 1969 and conserve their original catalogue number in the Vatican Library. At present that are kept unbound, with each bifolio protected, as is customary, by sheets of plexiglass, whilst the binding with which it entered the Vatican Library has been added to the Bindings collection. </p> .

        SCORBUTO LIBER SINGULARIS

      1672. CHARLETON, Walter. DE SCORBUTO LIBER SINGULARIS. Autore Gualtero Charleton, M.D. [...] Londini: Typis E. Tyler & R. Holt, prostant apud Guliel. Wells & Rob. Scot ..., 1672. First edition. Octavo. Old calf boards, worn and rubbed, sympathetically rebacked in matching calf. Nineteenth-century armorial bookplate of Edward Shipperdson. Charleton (1619-1707) was a fellow of the College of Physicians, eventually served as president of the Royal College (1689-1691), and was one of the first elected fellows of the Royal Society in 1662. Although Charleton was a brilliant individual and an active investigator, he continued to believe in many of the classical concepts of disease, and this treatment on the causes and treatment of scurvy is written in this vein. His medical books are hard reading, and contain no new observations of his own, but they show the transition from the old scholastic way of writing on medicine to the new method of stating observations and drawing conclusions from them. (D.N.B.; D.S.B. 3, pp. 208-210; Heirs to Hippocrates 527: Leiden 1672, 2nd ed.; Waller 1918; Wellcome II, p. 329; Wing C3669).
