Guericke, Otto Von
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two teams of eight horses were employed in an attempt to pull apart two copper hemispheres from which the air had been withdrawn.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 apa … [Click Below for Full Description]

Caballo, Pietro
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.

PHILIPOT (Thomas)
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."

Keye, Otto
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, Key … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

Parisiis : excudebat Franciscus Muguetus ., 1672 - pp: [56],660; title-page woodcut device; a few head and tail pieces and ornate initial letters; 12mo (116mm X 177mm). Probable contemporary binding, though full leather binding has fallen away, leaving boards fully exposed.

Boards however, are sturdy and securely held by their chords, and text block is also sturdy too. Leaves are clean and crisp leaves - a few turned corners - and while the text-block has been trimmed, the lower and fore-edges still have generous margins, and upper edge has been trimmed to approx. 10mm.

PUFENDORF, SAMUEL von. - THE STATE OF NATURE IS PEACE.
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 Cont … [Click Below for Full Description]
