        Wieder-errungene Freyheit. Oder Gabile und Salibert, Heldenspiel. Auf dem Europäischen Schauplatz die Jahre her zweyfelschlüssig vorgestellet, und mit hastiger Feder beschrieben.

      O. O., Dr., 1674. Format: 4°.. [62], [2] S. (letzten beiden weiß).. Mit Holzschnitt-Titel- und Schlussvignette.. Pappband des 19. Jahrhunderts mit Marmorpapierbezug minimal berieben.. Erste Ausgabe. Europas wiedergewonnene Freiheit*** Erste Ausgabe des seltenen "Heldenspiels", veröffentlicht unter dem Pseudonym Alexandro Romano von einem nicht nachweisbaren Autor. Auch die Protagonisten Gabile und Salibert sind Pseudonyme, Anagramme für "Belgien" (Gabile) und "Libertas" (Salibert). Auch hinter den anderen "Personen dieses Heldenspiels" verbergen sich Anagramme und Pseudonyma, die aufgeschlüsselt gehören, bisher aber in der Forschung weitgehend unberücksichtig blieben: "Guwild, Herzog von Florida", "Leuthold, Herzog von Terraferme", "Orkulas, Herzog von Skandien", "Maxentius, Kardinal von Ubien", "Herbrand, Kardinal von Mymingrod", "Goldapfel, der Gabilen General", "Weditte, der Gabilen Geheimer Rat", "Milwel, des Maxentius Raht", "Klafmar, ein Postbothe" - "Der Schauplatz ist Riviera".Interessant ist, dass es sich um eine europäische Geschichte handelt, die in den Personen die Fürstentümer bzw. die Länder darstellt, die in Freund- oder Feindschaft miteinander Beziehungen eingehen, wobei das Christentum als einigende Kraft beschworen wird - eine Präfiguration zu Novalis berühmten Aufsatz.Der VD17 kennt zwei unterschiedliche Druckvarianten mit leicht abweichender Holzschnitt-Titelvignette (vgl. auch 1:086664M) und weist dem Autor Alexander Romanus noch ein weiteres Werk mit Bezug auf das vorliegende zu: "Untersuchung des bey jüngst gehaltener Frankfurter Herbst-Messe ausgegangenen Heldenspiels, Die Wieder-errungene Freyheit/ Oder Gabile und Salibert genennet, Muhtmaaßlich und ohne Theilhaftmachung gehalten von Wahremundo Neutrali". Ganz blasse Fleckchen, insgesamt sehr sauber und wohlerhalten, sehr schönes Exemplar. Von größter Seltenheit, kein Exemplar im Handel in den letzten Jahrzehnten nachweisbar. VD17 23:304621K.

        Fine large half-length engraving of this important choreographer and dancing master by François Chereau (1680-1729) after Robert Tournières (1667-1752)

      . Pécour is depicted seated at a table with an open book of dances in Feuillet notation. 417 x 294 mm. Slightly worn and soiled; minor creasing to area with letters below image; trimmed to plate mark. . Credited with 120 original choreographies, most for the theatre but many for social dancing, "[Pécour] was one of the finest dancers working under the celebrated royal choreographer Pierre Beauchamp. He is said in one source to have made his début as a dancer in a repeat performance of Lully’s Cadmus et Hermione in 1674. When, on Lully's death in 1687, Beauchamp left the Opéra, Pécour was appointed in his place. He gave up dancing in about 1703 but he held the post of ballet-master and choreographer at the Opéra until his death. His tutelage produced such outstanding dancers as La Fontaine, Subligny, Guiot, Prevost and Menese among the women and Blondy, Ballon, Dumoulin and Marcel among the men. He is credited with changing the ‘S’ figure of the Minuet to a ‘Z’, an innovation that helped keep the dancers in a proper relationship to each other and to the figure."

The microscope revealed in insects an organization as marvelous as it was unsuspected. Redi prepared and observed the egg-producing apparatus in insects, and he also used the microscope to good advantage in observing the morphological elements characteristic of the eggs of each species" (DSB XI, p. 341).//D.

La Defense du Droit de Marie Therese d'Austriche, Reine de France a la Succession des Couronnes d'Espagne. Paris: Chez Sebastien Mabre-Cramoisy, 1674. [xxiv], 164, [1] pp. 12mo. (5-1/2" x 3"). Contemporary sheep treated to resemble tree-calf, gilt spine with raised bands, speckled edges. Some rubbing to extremities with minor wear to spine ends, corners bumped. Toning to text, faint dampstaining and spotting to a few leaves, internally clean. * First edition. The author was the Archbishop of Embrun, later Prince-Archbishop of Metz. Mazarin appointed him ambassador to Venice in 1659. Louis XIV appointed him ambassador to Spain in 1667 to pursue French claims to the Spanish Netherlands in the name of Maria Theresa of Austria (1638-1683), the Spanish Infanta and Queen Consort of Louis XIV. These claims were tenuous and constructed on intricate legal foundations. French jurists argued that the Spanish Netherlands should not go to the still underage heir to the Spanish throne, Charles II of Spain (1661-1700), because he was the issue of the second marriage of Philip IV. Maria Theresa on the other hand was a result of his first marriage and the lands thereby 'devolved' to her and, of course, Louis XIV. France's claims led to the War of devolution (1667-68). Feuillade defends France's claims with an argument grounded in the "fundamental laws of Spain, the examples of past centuries and the solemn judgments of the Royal Council of Castile." A second edition was published in 1699. Both copies are scarce, especially in North America. OCLC locates no copies in North American law libraries.

Some pleader's manuals, such as Rastell's Book of Entries (1564), were semi-official compilations by single authors. Others, such as the Liber Placitandi were collections drawn from various authors. Sometimes cited as Thompson's Entries, it was first published in 1671. Holdsworth considers it a fine example of the genre. The preface assures the reader that "[m]ost of the pleadings are Modern, having occurr'd in the Court of King's Bench, since his Majesties Happy Restauration; whereof many received Approbation under the hands of some of the best pleaders of the Age: (as by their Originals may be Attested).": To The Reader [iii].

        A potentially very important Autograph letter from the recently appointed Inspector of Excise Revenue to Charles II's First Minister, the Earl Of Danby, on the issue of delayed returns into the financial state of the Navy.

      London 2nd December 1674 - Folio, single page written in Secretary hand but signed by Shales, addressed, docketed, some dustiness, has been folded for delivery, evidence of seal wax. In 1673, towards the end of the Third Anglo Dutch war, the English Navy was £1000,000 in debt; ships were worn out, compliment of serving men at its lowest for years, and fraud was rife. Thomas Osborne, Earl of Danby and First Minister, requested in March 1674 information on the Navy's financial condition. John Shales, recently appointed \inspector of Excise Revenue and previously Victualling Agent to the Navy at Portsmouth, writes that although partial information has become available he is as yet unable to file a complete report for lack of further data. He concludes by referring to a consultation between Danby and Samuel Pepys, who was at that time conducting his important strategic review of naval refurbishments and systemic abuses - "The Charge of the Navy continues its progression to a degree far beyond the Establishment which your Loxx (Lordships) has design'd to consult Mr Pepys."

He proved what both he and Hooke contended, that only a portion of air is used in respiration and combustion, by demonstrating that air in an enclosed space, when burned or breathed, is reduced only by one fourteenth. He also discovered that the muscles were the source of animal heat, and the double-articulation of the ribs with the spine.

Bound in contemporary calf with spine in six compartments. A wonderfully fresh copy, light toning and foxing to one or two leaves, otherwise excellent. First complete edition (second; first 1674, see below) of this important Galileianum, an assembly of previously unpublished writings by Galileo, together with texts by Torricelli and Viviani himself, inscribed by Viviani to an unknown (scored) receipient. Vincenzo Viviani resided with Galileo at Arectri from October 1639 as his pupil, amanuensis, and assistant, and together with Torricelli, spent the last months of Galileo¿s life with him recording the master¿s final meditations on the relationship between mathematics and physics. The first chapter of this work, a dialogue entitled ¿Quinto Libro degli Elementi d¿Euclide. spiegata colla Dottrina del Galileo¿ was dictated by Galileo to Torricelli in November 1641. (Galileo died January 9, 1642.) Though on his deathbed, it was to be the beginning of still another book continuing the discussion between his three old interlocutors from the Two New Sciences. In this dialogue, printed here and edited from a manuscript given to Viviani by Cardinal De¿ Medici, Galileo reflects upon two definitions found in Euclid¿s Elements, ¿same ratio¿ and ¿compound ratio,¿ which were ¿the two most important keys taken from antiquity in creating Galileo¿s mathematical physics, so that his exposition of them as the last act of his scientific career reflected his earliest scientific steps at Pisa and Padua. Like the Leaning Tower affair, this dialogue linked his last days with his first; Galileo had come full circle¿ (Drake, p. 421). As a young man, Galileo was profoundly influenced by the Elements, especially Books Five and Six which contained the Eudoxian theory of proportion. ¿The importance of the Eudoxian proportion theory to Galileo¿s science cannot be exaggerated. Until the application of algebra to the general solution of geometrical (as well as arithmetical) problems, not achieved until after Galileo¿s work was completed, rigorous connection of mathematics with physical events was possible only through some theory of proportionality. Eudoxian theory establishing proportionality between continuous magnitudes was essential to any great advance over medieval physics¿ (Drake, p. 4). Viviani ¿with the rigor and prolixity of the ancients¿devoted an appendix to geometric problems, among which was one on the trisection of an angle, solved by the use of the cylindrical spiral or of a cycloid; another was the problem of duplicating the cube, solved by means of conics or of the cubic xy2 =k¿ (DSB). .
