Chez l'auteur, Paris, 1676. Plein maroquin rouge de l'époque, plats à la Du Seuil. Dos à cinq nerfs, orné et doré, portant le titre doré. Roulette dorée sur les coupes. Roulette dorée sur les chasses. Tranches dorées. Un volume in quarto (280x208 mm), frontispice, (12)-1060-(34) pages, 6 planches hors texte. Feuillet Ddddd (page 761/2) remonté et réemmargé. Reliure frottée. Coiffe de queue accidentée. Quelques rousseurs Savant médecin et Pharmacien né à Uzès en 1618, Charas étudia la chimie à Orange, puis vint de bonne heure à Paris, où il fut nommé démonstrateur royal de chimie au jardin du roi. La révocation de l'édit de Nantes le força à quitter la France en 1680. Après avoir pratiqué la médecine avec succès en Angleterre, puis en Hollande, il se rendit en Espagne où il avait été appelé auprès du roi Charles II, depuis longtemps malade. Les soins qu'il lui donna n'empêchèrent pas qu'il fut dénoncé à l'inquisition, par suite de la jalousie des médecins de la cour. Il n'en sortit qu'après avoir abjuré. Ses écrits restent encore marqués par les théories alchimiques. Sa pharmacopée est le fruit de ses leçons données à Paris et de ses études. Elle connut un grand succès, fut rééditée de nombreuses fois et a été traduite dans toutes les langues de l'Europe, et même en chinois pour la commodité de l'Empereur. On y trouve la description de nombreuses préparations, recettes de remèdes et autres panacées universelles. Charas explique aussi dans cet ouvrage pourquoi l'eau forte fond tous les métaux, excepté l'or; et pourquoi l'eau régale, qui met l'or en fusion, ne peut pas fondre … [Click Below for Full Description]

London: Printed in the year, 1676. 4to, pp. [iv], 22, [2]. Modern quarter blue cloth and green paper boards, spine lettered vertically in gilt, padded out with blanks at the rear. Browned and foxed, fore- and tail-edges shaved, with some loss to page numbers, signature marks, and on a couple of leaves the bottom line of text or the first couple of letters of each line on the verso. Birmingham library bindery stamp to rear pastedown. A rare masque, adapting in verse the judgement of Paris, by Thomas Duffett (or Duffet, fl. 1673-1676), about whom little is known. His burlesques were successful and serve as important witnesses to the elaborate contemporary productions that they satirised, while this work appears to have been written to order for a short-lived boarding school housed in Gorges House, built by Sir Arthur Gorges in Chelsea (demolished by the 1720s).

RØMER, Ole.
Paris: Chez Jean Cusson, 1676. First edition. First edition, the dedication copy, in a magnificent contemporary armorial binding executed for the dedicatee, of the very rare first publication of the discovery that light is not instantaneously propagated, as Aristotle, Kepler and Descartes had maintained. "The timing of the eclipses of the satellites [of Jupiter] varies systematically with the relative positions of the earth, sun, and Jupiter; and Rømer notices that these variations can be accounted for by the varying distance of travel of the light rays. His calculations both require and, for the remaining doubters, help substantiate the Copernican theory of the earth's revolution around the sun" (Parkinson). Rømer's discovery was made possible by the investigation of the motions of the satellites of Jupiter by Giovanni Domenico Cassini (1625-1712) which began at Bologna in 1666 and culminated in his Ephemerides Bononiensis Mediceorum siderum (1668). Following his move to Paris in 1669, Cassini continued observing Jupiter's satellites; one member of Cassini's staff there was Ole Rømer (1644-1710), brought from Denmark by Jean Picard in 1671. "In 1675 Cassini found an inequality [irregularity] in the motion of Jupiter's innermost moon (now called Io) which was strongly correlated with the distance between Jupiter and the Earth. Cassini initially hypothesized that this inequality was due to a finite speed of light, but then he rejected this notion. Rømer adopted Cassini's stepchild, and predicted in September 1676 that the eclipse of Io that was to occur on 9 November of that … [Click Below for Full Description]

"In 1675 Cassini found an inequality [irregularity] in the motion of Jupiter's innermost moon (now called Io) which was strongly correlated with the distance between Jupiter and the Earth. Cassini initially hypothesized that this inequality was due to a finite speed of light, but then he rejected this notion. Rømer adopted Cassini's stepchild, and predicted in September 1676 that the eclipse of Io that was to occur on 9 November of that year would tak … [Click Below for Full Description]

PLUTARCH
Cambridge: John Hayes, for George Sawbridge, 1676. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. "The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be kindled." ― Plutarch 'Plutarch's Lives' or 'Parallel Lives' is one of the most important and comprehensive collection of biographies of famous Greek and Roman figures. Plutarch was not so much focused on providing a historical account of these famous individuals as much as he was seeking to write of the type of person they were and the life in which they lived. He focuses on Alexander the Great, Romulus and Remus, Demosthenes, Cicero, Brutus, Julius Caesar, and many other important figures. This impressive, and stunningly beautiful volume features all of the expected biographies as well as a few additional 'lives' not included in any previous impression. This 1676 edition features the lives of Hernan Cortez, Basil, Duke of Mscovy, Sebastian I, King of Portugal, and Christopher Columbus! Obviously, these newer biographies were not written by Plutarch, but rather supplemented by 17th-century authors. English translation and supplements from Thomas North, Andre Thevet, and Charles de L'Escluse out of the James Amyot French.

MICHAELIS, Gregorius
Hamburgi: Gothofredum Schultzen prostant, 1676. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Jacobi Gaffarelli was a 17th-century French priest who is known for his important representation of the Christian Kabbalah. During this time period, there was a growing interest amongst Christian scholars in the mystical aspects of the Jewish Kabbalah. Gaffarelli, and to an extent Gregorius Michaelis, tried to merge Jewish and Christian traditions. The result was Gaffarelli's 'Curiosities'. Michaelis created an attack on this book which defended that the Hebrew language was the one true language of God and the universe. Michaelis's refutation of Gaffarelli was supported by the French government which had previously censored Gaffarelli's original book. This book includes aspects of ancient astrology and pagan rituals from Egyptian, Persian, and Arab cultures. It also paints a clear picture of Gaffarelli's description of how Jewish astrology developed from star-gazing and Greek and Roman mythologies.

During this time period, there was a growing interest amongst Christian scholars in the mystical aspects of the Jewish Kabbalah. Gaffarelli, and to an extent Gregorius Michaelis, tried to merge Jewish and Christian traditions. The result was Gaffarelli's 'Curiosities'. Michaelis created an attack on this book which defended that the Hebrew language was the one true language of God and the universe. Michaelis's refutation of Gaffarelli was supported by the French government which had previously censored Gaffarelli's original book.This book includes aspects of ancient astrology and pagan rituals from Egyptian, Persian, and Arab cultures. It also paints a clear picture of Gaffarelli's description of how Jewish astrology developed from star-gazing and Greek and Roman mythologies.Item number: #9433Price: $599MICHAELIS, GregoriusM.
