        A collection of English words not generally used, with their significations and original, in two alphabetical catalogues, the one of such as are proper to the northern, the other to the southern counties. With catalogues of English birds and fishes: and an account of the preparing and refining such metals and minerals as are gotten in England.

      H. Bruges for Tho. Burrell, London 1674 - First edition of the first book on English dialects, and the first English dialect dictionary; 12mo, pp. [14], [1]-178 (i.e. 148); blank leaf A1 is not preserved, by the blank L4 is; title page printed in red and black; bottom margin trimmed close (but no loss); contemporary full calf, blindstamped fleurons in the corners, neatly and appropriately rebacked in the 20th century. Early inscription at the top of the title page: "Anglesey, March 30, 1678."While on his botanical journeys throughout England, which brought Ray (1627-1705) everlasting fame, he had the opportunity to study local antiquities and customs, as well as local dialects. This work, together with his Collection of English Proverbs (1670), is an outgrowth of these travels. On one of his treks into Cornwall he made notes on the smelting industry, and recorded his observations (included in a separate section at the back of this volume) on the smelting and refining of silver, tin and iron. Also included is a brief section on husbandry. The sections on the names of British birds and fishes were largely the work of Francis Willughby. An expanded and much more common edition appeared in 1691. Keynes 23 ("one of his more important publications"); Alston IX, 1; Kennedy 10623; Wing R-388 [Attributes: First Edition]

        THE COMMENTARIES OF MESSIRE BLAÎZE DE MONTLUC, MARESCHAL OF FRANCE

      London: Printed by Andrew Clark, for Henry Brome, 1674. FIRST EDITION IN ENGLISH . Hardcover. 337 x 203 mm (13 1/4 x 8"). 10 p.l. (counting the frontispiece), 376, 381-404 (i.e., 400) pp., [6] leaves (complete). Translated by Charles Cotton. FIRST EDITION IN ENGLISH. Excellent contemporary mottled calf, covers bordered with blind rules, center panel with scrolling floral roll and fleuron cornerpieces in blind, and with very unusual dark and light obliquely intersecting wavy lines at center; raised bands, spine elaborately gilt in compartments featuring a fine all-over pattern of stippled scrolls and rosettes, maroon morocco label with decorative bands at head and foot. Woodcut initials, engraved frontispiece portrait. Front pastedown with the engraved bookplate of Sir Mountague Cholmeley. Title page printed in red and black. Wing M-2506; Lowndes II, 1594; Graesse IV, 593. Front joint cracked alongside lowest compartment, upper board with shallow abrasion at center near joint, head of spine, corners, and joints a bit rubbed, but the decorative original binding entirely solid, with no serious wear, and still very impressive. Fore margin of one leaf a little soiled, frontispiece lightly offset onto title page, two leaves with short tear in margin at head or foot, a few small rust holes and additional trivial faults, otherwise A FINE COPY INTERNALLY, the text especially fresh and quite bright and clean. This account of the military actions of Blaise de Montluc (1501-77), marshal of France, provides a military history of the period from 1521-76. And, as the title suggests, it can also serve as a handbook of 16th century techniques of "Combats, Rencounters, Skirmishes, Battels, Sieges, Assaults, Scalado's, the Taking and Surprizes of Towns and Fortresses [and] the Defences of the Assaulted and Besieg'd." The French king Henry IV called the work the "breviary" of soldiers. Montluc narrates in great detail his 50 years of military action, first as a simple soldier and finally as France's highest officer. He served under Francis I, then Francis' son and grandsons, in a period when France was contesting with Spain for control of much of Italy as well as fighting the Huguenot Protestants at home. Among the most notable episodes of Montluc's chronicle are the battle of Cerisolles in Piedmont, the defense of besieged Siena, and the battle of La Rochelle. The work gives a vivid depiction of warfare of the period as well as the author himself in his role as warrior. Montluc rose through the ranks because of his initiative, courage, and skill in battle, and he is not reluctant to share the high opinion he has of himself. (Our translator forgives this vainglory by saying that bragging to a Gascon like Montluc "is as natural as bravery.") He fought in the front ranks throughout his career and was often wounded. Our translator, Charles Cotton (1630-97), was a polished poet, although his habit of writing scurrilous burlesques somewhat tarnished his literary reputation. An avid angler, he was a close friend of Izaak Walton; his "Instructions How To Angle for a Trout or Grayling in a Clear Stream" was appended to Walton's "Compleat Angler" from 1750 onward. Among Cotton's translations, the best known is his English version of Montaigne, considered a classic. In our volume he also contributes a dedication to the Earl of Chesterfield, an address to the reader, and a poem on Montluc and his commentaries. (Included here as well are prefatory poems by Thomas Flatman and Richard Newcourt.) The fine original binding is clearly English and much in the style of Roger Bartlett (see Nixon's "English Restoration Bookbindings," Nos. 117-21).

        Del origen y principio de la lengua castellana o romance que oy se usa en España.

      Melchor Sánchez, Madrid 1674 - Bernardo Aldrete (1565 - 1645) Canónigo en Córdoba, fue uno de los hombres más doctos de su tiempo.

Aplicó su saber erudito al estudio de la lengua española y publicó esta importante obra dividida en tres libros, el primero de los cuales ocupa 69 pgs., 52 el segundo y otras tantas el tercero. El ejemplar que ofrecemos está bien conservado aunque no deja de acusar el paso del tiempo y el pergamino sufre algunos desperfectos. El cuerpo del libro está parcialmente desprendido en el lomo, y cinco hojas, de la 60 a la 65, aparecen comidas por la polilla en la esquina inferior derecha afectando ligerísimamente a dos de las notas originales, no a las columnas del texto.

      [Frankfurt]: M. Merianum [Mattheus Merian], 1674. An early issuance of this landmark collection of Chronicles. Extensively illustrated, with over three-hundred large copperplate engravings throughout, depicting events from the Creation to the early Seventeenth Century. Several of the plates have hand-colouring. Additionally, there are 31 plates each containing 12 medallion portraits of rulers, kings, queens, emperors and other note-worthies from Hercules to Georgius Basta, each with text on the facing page and a few with hand-colouring to the crowns. Included also is a fine double-page world map with hand-coloured border, and a double-page plan of Ostend in 1604. Thick folio, bound in full contemporary calf, the spine with raised bands over cords, decorative devices in blind within the compartments. [72], [double-page world map], 1185, [53 Register (Index) + [double-page map of Ostend]. A collectable copy of this scarce and impressive tome. The binding well worn, upper board detached, first text signature loose, otherwise the interior surprisingly clean and fresh with a few closed tears, one page with a small torn portion from a corner. Illustrated title by Sandrart not present in this copy, main engraved title is present. With the magnificent engravings by Matthias Merian, one of the most prominent members of the leading publishing family of 17th-century Germany. He was especially known throughout Europe for his engravings of cityscapes and landscapes. Merian was a Swiss-born engraver who worked in Frankfurt for most of his career, where he also ran this publishing house. He was a member of the patrician Basel Merian family. Historische Chronica is a comprehensive collection of chronicles from the beginning of the world to the first decades of the 17th-century. Johann Philipp Abelin was a noted scholar and translator. Working primarily for Mattheaus Merian in Frankfurt, he published a number of histories under the Johann Ludwig Gottfried pseudonym, as well as that of Phillipp Arlanibaus. This, the CHRONICA, is his best known work and was extremely popular in his time. Today, the magnificent engravings by Merian are of primary interest.

        The Discourse made before the Royal Society the 26. of November 1674. concerning the Use of Duplicate Proportion in sundry Important Particulars: Together with a New Hypothesis of Springing or Elastique Motions

      16 p.l., 135 pp. 12mo, a rather odd binding of cont. vellum over boards (some abrading, title a little soiled). London: J. Martyn, 1674. First edition. "Petty&#39;s work, actually two works in one, consists of the first part on &#39;the use of duplicate proportion&#39; and, as an appendix, a &#39;hypothesis of springing or elastic motion.&#39; The first is concerned with the quadratic relationship which was proposed by Galileo to define the flexure of a beam such that flexural resistance is proportional to the width of the section, to the square of its depth and inversely to its length. Without acknowledging Galileo&#39;s Discorsi, although it was known to him and the Royal Society either in the Italian or through Salusbury&#39;s translation, Petty provides a verbal description of how a beam&#39;s proportions affect its strength. He then went on to provide an example problem of how to determine the size of joists necessary to support a floor of specific size and load per square foot... "Petty also provides a discussion of models and modeling theory and its application to the size of ships and their sails and the distance which sound carries and light may be seen. Again it utilizes quadratic relationships and owes its allegiance to Galileo, who discussed model theory in the first day of the Discorsi... "Having begun with very practical and pragmatic problems, Petty slides into metaphysics in his second topic, the nature of elastic bodies. Noteworthy as the first English hypothesis regarding elasticity and the nature of elastic bodies, in it he proposes that matter was composed of corpuscles which were then made up of atoms. The atoms were held to have both magnetic properties and sexual characteristics. His theory was attacked on the grounds of being atheistic and led one critic to say that God created heaven and earth but no atoms. Purver, M.

Florence, Gugliantini, 1677. [2] ff, (6), 63 pp., 4 folding engraved plates. With presentation inscription to verso of half-title of first work signed by Viviani. 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). ..............

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.

        Vita R. P. Fr. Hieronymi Savonarolae ferrariensis, ord. praedicatorum

      Paris: Sumptibus Ludovici Billaine, 1674. 12mo (15 cm, 5.9"). Vol. I of II. Frontis., [18] ff., 385 [i.e., 375], [1] pp. Plates. Authoritative edition of Savonarola&#39;s biography first printed in the 1530&#39;s, the volume in hand containing both the entire "life" and the famous compendium of his revelations. Count Giovanni Francesco Pico della Mirandola (1469&#150;1533, not to be confused with his uncle Giovanni, the famous philosopher, 1463&#150;94) knew Savonarola personally, and witnessed his martyrdom in 1498. After years of writing and revising, and reviews by friends who also knew Savonarola, his biography was finally finished in 1530 and later translated anonymously into Italian. The present edition is in Latin and was edited by Jacques Quétif (1618&#150;98), a Dominican priest working chez Louis Billaine in Paris &#151; France of the Ancien Régime regarding Savonarola as an authentic spiritual leader and not "just" the vexatious Dominican priest who antagonized Alexander VI, spoke out against humanism, and was excommunicated and executed for heresy. The text is printed in roman and italic with side- and shouldernotes, and decorated with a few woodcut initials, headpieces and tail ornaments, with a separate section title for the Compendium revelationum, introduced with a preface by Florentine poet Girolamo Benivieni (1453&#150;1542). A colophon at the end of the Lamentatio sponsae Christi (final leaf) is dated 1537 for the Venetian edition by Tridino. In addition to a finely engraved frontispiece portrait of Savonarola, there are => eight plates, numbering four engraved coats of arms, for the Atestina, Medici, Borgia and Sforza families, and => four large foldout letterpress family trees, for the author&#39;s family, the Atestina, Medici, and Borgia, who are all related in some way or another to Savonarola&#39;s story. BM STC French, P1013. On Pico della Mirandola, see: NCE, XI, 347&#150;48, and C.B. Schmitt, Gianfrancesco Pico della Mirandola ... and his Critique of Aristotle (1967). On Billaine, see: B. Montagnes OP, "Éditions et éditeurs de Savonarole dans la France d&#39;Ancien Régime," in Archivium fratrum praedicatorum, LXXV, pp. 159&#150;78. Vellum over boards with yapp edges, ink title to spine and blue speckled edges; vol. II, "Additiones," not present. Unnoticeable pin-type wormhole to frontispiece, title-page rubbed with loss to part of two words and with small hole to its blank area; small spottings to Medici fold-out plate and a few other leaves; Borgia fold-out plate repaired and with a diamond-shaped waterstain; a few tears in lower margins, two resulting in a bit of loss and one of these given an old repair.

        Le grand dictionnaire historique, ou le mélange curieux de l&#39;histoire sainte et profane

      Lyon: J. Girin et B. Rivière, 1674 Book. Fine. Hardcover. 1st Edition. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. Folio (365x225 mm). [32], 1346 pp. Half title, title printed in red and black, engraved frontispiece by G. Audran. Contemporary full leather, 6 raised bands gilt in compartments (some wear to boards, old repairs to head and foot of spine), offsetting to frontispiece, title page with old ownership inscription, minor worming (mainly marginal), little dampstaining to upper corner of few leaves, marbled endpapers. A crisp unfoxed copy of the first edition and of greatest rarity. Only two copies listed in KVK (one in Zurich and another in Paris BnF), no copy in the USA. ---- Brunet III, 1901; Zischka 7; Carter/Muir, Printing and the Mind of Man 155a - FIRST EDITION OF THE FIRST MODERN ENCYCLOPEDIA. Moreri&#39;s work is ranked, along with Bayle&#39;s Dictionnaire Historique et Critique, as one of the first vernacular encyclopedias to make an impact on the European world of letters. Moreri deliberately designed his encyclopedia as an apologia and defence of the Roman Catholic Church. It is also noteworthy for its emphasis on biographical and historical entries which for a long time were neglected by other compilers such as Harris, Chambers and Bayle (whose own Dictionnaire was composed as a direct response to Moreri&#39;s work). It was eclipsed by Diderot&#39;s Encyclopedie (Paris, 1751-65)..
