Folio. A little worming to upper blank corners disappearing by p.60, occasional mainly rather faint marginal waterstaining, small paper flaw to u4 affecting 4 letters, some light browning. Early 18th century calf, later rebacked retaining original gilt spine & black gilt label; corners sl. worn, e.ps replaced. Contemporary name of J. Acklom at foot of titlepage.ESTC R10223. The First Collected Edition, with prefatory material by Hobbes, 'The answer of Mr. Hobbes to Sr. William D'Avenant's preface before Gondibert', and poems by Waller and Cowley. Several of the plays originally published in blank verse are here printed for the first time, converted into prose. The volume also includes first printings of 'The Playhouse to be Let', 'Law Against Lovers', 'News from Plymouth', 'The Fair Favourite', 'The Distresses', and 'The Siege'. The posthumous collection was published under the watchful eye of "Lady Mary" D'Avenant. The poems reflect the attitudes of the Cavalier poets and the received tradition of earlier poets, particularly Shakespeare, Jonson, and Donne. She no doubt also insisted on the fine portrait frontispiece restoring her husband's missing nose, which he had lost through illness in 1638.

[HORLOGERIE] HUYGENS (Christiaan).
Parisiis, apud F. Muguet, 1673. In-folio, (7)ff., 161 pp., (1) p.. Armes royales sur le titre, dédicace à Louis XIV, environ 100 figures gravées dans le texte et la belle représentation à pleine page du mouvement pendulaire. Exemplaire très frais et grand de marge (317 x 207 mm). Ex-libris découpé en haut de la page de titre sur une bande de 1 cm. Vélin pastiche. PREMIÈRE ÉDITION DES TRAVAUX LES PLUS IMPORTANTS D'HUYGENS, contenant la première analyse mathématique du mouvement du pendule et un traité général sur la dynamique des corps en mouvement.Huygens était un scientifique de premier plan de son époque. Son travail comprenait des premières études télescopiques sur les anneaux de Saturne et la découverte de sa lune Titan, l'invention de l'horloge pendulaire et d'autres enquêtes dans le chronométrage. Christiaan Huygens a construit la première horloge pendulaire en 1657 et dans son Horologium a prouvé mathématiquement sa découverte de l'isochronisme du mouvement cycloidal. Son précepteur privé était le grand Descartes lui-même, qui l'a manifestement beaucoup influencé. Le but de son ouvrage est la construction d'une horloge de haute précision, basée sur les lois de la Mécanique. Huygens choisit comme mécanisme celui du pendule réglé par la gravitation et par la force que Newton appellera plus tard la force inertiale ou la force enracinée (Principia). Huygens qui connaît alors les Discorsi, le dernier livre de Galilée, entreprend de le corriger et de trouver la vraie isochrone, pour construire grâce à elle une horloge de haute précision. Le résultat de ses recherches es … [Click Below for Full Description]

(Colour) (PILES, Roger de)
Paris: Nicolas Langlois, 1673. Roger de Piles was an important French art critic and theorist. This first edition of his treatise on colouring opened the famous "debate of the colourists" which dominated French esthetic thought at the end of the seventeenth century. The argument which followed divided its participants into two camps with, on one side, an established classical school which held drawing and design to be the essential qualities of great art, while an opposing camp of "modernists", lead by de Piles, held colouring and the effects of light and shadow to be the most essential elements of pictorial art. Raphael and Poussin stood as the ultimate models for the partisans of design while Rubens and Titian were championed by the colourists. De Piles' DIALOGUE SUR LE COLORIS (Dialogue On Colouring) was seminal in defining the theoretical viewpoint of this latter, ultimately triumphant, group. He emphasised, in particular, the use of chiaroscuro and first introduced the term clair-obscur to identify this technique. The theories that de Piles first published here influenced art historical discussions long afterwards and find echoes in other later aesthetic arguments between classical and modern schools of art. As usual, his DIALOGUE SUR LE COLORIS is found here bound with another work, in this case the first edition of Sébastien Le Clerc's FIGURES D'ACADEMIE POUR APRENDRE À DÉSINER, also published by Langlois. Le Clerc's work offers a series of muscular male nude studies of mythological or classical figures. It is now reasonably rare, with OCLC locating 12 cop … [Click Below for Full Description]

Convincing By Argument and Proof the Traditional Notions touching this Grand Evil, and common reputed Practice grounded thereon, as erroneous and unfound. Solving the most dubious and important Quæries concerning the abstruse Nature, difficult and deceitful Cures of this Popular Malady.

Hamburg und Amsterdam Schultz und Janssonius, 1673. (16 x 8,5 cm). 168 S. Pergamentband der Zeit. Eine von zwei Varianten der ersten Ausgabe des von Schmieder sehr geschätzten Werkes. Es gibt auch Exemplare, die nur in Hamburg bei Schultz erschienen sind. - "Kompilation alchemistischer Aussagen zur Frage der Verwandlung der Metalle, in Form eines offenen Briefes an den holsteinischen Leibarzt Joel Langelott" (Dünnhaupt). Die Schrift wurde 1702 von Manget in seiner "Bibliotheca chemica" wieder abgedruckt, und 1704 erschien davon eine anonyme Übersetzung unter dem Titel "Vom Goldmachen". - Morhof (1639-91) "darf zwar nicht zu den Alchemisten gezählt werden, sondern er betrachtet die Alchemie nur aus dem Gesichtspunkte des Historikers; aber um so mehr darf man von ihm ein unparteiliches Urtheil erwarten. Auf seinen wiederholten Reisen. sammelte er die Stimmen der sachkundigen Gelehrten, stellte ausgedehnte literarische Forschungen an, und gewann so die historische Ueberzeugung von der Wahrheit der Alchemie. Diese Ueberzeugung sprach er (in vorliegendem Werk) offen aus." (Schmieder). - Alter Stempel auf dem Titel. Durchgehend unterschiedlich gebräunt. Einband gering fleckig und berieben. Insgesamt gut erhalten. - VD17 39:116792A; Dünnhaupt 70; Ferguson II, 107; Bolton 1016; Schmieder 419; Brüning 2268
