Feindler, The Anatomy of Brain and Nerves (1965), p.94 - THE CONTRIBUTIONS of WILLIS - "Thomas Willis was one of the original Fellows of the Royal Society, being elected in November 1663, though through a technicality he was not listed until October 24, 1667, at the time of renewal of the charter. In 1664 he was made Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians. Influenced by Gilbert Sheldon, Archbishop of Canterbury, who had supported his appointment to the Oxford professorship, Willis moved in 1666 to London, where he practised from St. Martin's Lane. The reputation he had acquired at Oxford preceded him, and he soon became noted for his medical skill and known for his charitable works. - Thomas Willis wrote on a formidable range of topics, including fermentation, fevers, urine, ascension of the blood, muscular motion, anatomy of the brain, description and use of the nerves, convulsive diseases, scurvy, the comparative anatomy of some dozen species ranging from the earthworm and lobster to the sheep and man. He published numerous clinical and autopsy reports, particularly on neurological problems. Finally, in his last writings on rational therapeutics, he presented a vast and complex pharmacopeia in which are buried, however, useful descriptions of the anatomy of blood vessels, the muscular layers of the stomach and the detailed structure of the lungs.(R)His name has been associated with the syndrome of paracusis, the spinal accessory nerve, the first division of the fifth nerve, the connective tissue septae in the dural sinuses, and, of course, the arterial circle at the base of the brain. The clinical observations of Willis include a description of the sweetness of diabetic urine and a lengthy discussion of various types of diabetes, known to his seventeenth century patients bv the quaint name of "chamber pot dropsy". He recorded epidemic typhoid fever among the troops in the Civil War, described and named puerperal fever, gave useful descriptions of whooping cough and asthma, and pointed out that the intermittent pulse was not invariably associated with a bad prognosis. He contributed much to comparative anatomy and with his students Edmund King and John Masters, for example, he published the first detailed anatomical description of the edible oyster. He devised the probang, an ingenious "machine" for treating "a very rare case of a certain Man of Oxford" who was probably suffering from a stricture or achalasia of the esophagus. The patient vomited each time he ate. When it became clear that he could not be helped by medicines, but, wrote Willis, "languished away for hunger, and every Day was in danger of Death, I prepared an Instrument for him like a Rod, of a whale Bone, with a little round Button of Spunge fixed to the top of it; the sick Man having taken down meat and drink into his Throat, presently putting this down in the Oesophagus, he did thrust down into the Ventricle, its Orifice being opened, the Food which otherwise would come back again; and by this means he hath daily taken his sustenance for sixteen Years and doth yet use the same Machine, and is yet alive, and well, who would otherwise perish for want of Food." - As Cushing and Symonds have written, Willis was the first to present the notion of a circulating hormone from the pituitary and from the gonads. His extensive neurological writings still remain to be adequately appraised. His classification of the cranial nerves was in use for several centuries. He described the branches of the vagus nerve and the nerves to the diaphragm, and pictured the basal ganglia and structures of the brain stem in detail never before presented. He was probably the first to report temporal lobe epilepsy and to report the effects of myasthenia gravis" in a woman who temporarily lost her power of speech and became "mute as a fish". The term "reflex" can be clearly ascribed to Willis. He wrote on headache, epilepsy, apoplexy, paralysis of the insane, narcolepsy! and mental retardation. He explained hysteria not as a disorder of the uterus but as a nervous affection. The value of his observations on psychiatric and mental disturbances has only recently been recognized. - THE TERM "NEUROLOGY" This word first appears in Greek, in the Latin edition of Willis' "Cerebri Anatome" published in 1664. It was introduced into English in 1681 in the translation of Willis' works by Samuel Pordage, a Cavalier poet who dabbled at writing Restoration plays. He provided "a table of all the hard words from the Greek and Latin for the benefit of meer English Readers" where he "fully explained them and rendered them intelligible to the meanest capacity", and here "Neurologie" is referred to as "the Doctrine of the Nerves". The term was evidently used by Willis to include the cranial, spinal, peripheral and autonomic nerves as distinct from the brain and spinal cord, as when he states "we have resolved to undertake the task of the Doctrine of the Nerves; and this rather because without the perfect knowledge of the Nerves, the Doctrine of the Brain and its Appendix would be left wholly lame and imperfect." - Willis' use of the root "neuro", from the Greek word meaning sinew, tendon or bowstring, antedates its appearance in all other combinations in English by a century or more. Later, toward the end of the eighteenth century, the word "neurology" gradually came to its present broader meaning, given in the Oxford English Dictionary, of "the scientific study or knowledge of the anatomy, functions and diseases of the nerves and the nervous system"."

        Tratados historicos, politicos, ethicos y religiosos de la Monarchia de China . [Historical, Political, Moral and Religious Account of the Empire of China. A Short Description of that Empire and its Emperors and Ministers...]

      Madrid: Imprenta Real, 1676. Small folio, title-page in black and red with woodcut armorial device, engraved coat of arms at head of dedication; 3 lines of early annotation crossed through at end of advertisement; generally in fine condition in a good modern binding of brown calf, spine gilt in compartments between raised bands. First edition of early account of China. First edition: an excellent copy of this rare book, an important early description of the Chinese Empire based on direct experiences between the 1650s and 1670s. 'Written in Madrid in the first half of 1675 by a Dominican monk who had resided in China from 1658 until 1670, this work although sympathetic to the Chinese was anti-Jesuit and the Society of Jesus attempted to have it suppressed… [It] contains an accurate account of the Chinese empire, its customs and beliefs…' The book also describes visits to Macao, India, Mexico, the Philippines and elsewhere. 'There is a hostile survey of the Portuguese concession port of Macao…'(Lowendahl, {i China Illustrata Nova}). Navarrete travelled as a missionary to the Philippines by way of Mexico, arriving in 1648. He taught theology at the Dominican University in Manila, then in 1657 left with a group of missionaries for China. He spent years learning the language, only to be prevented from preaching, along with the other missionaries, by the persecutions of 1665. Instead he began to write; in 1673 he was called to Rome to discuss the question of Chinese Rites. This problem had reached an acute stage in China, with the Jesuits on one side and the Dominicans and Franciscans on the other. Navarrete was highly respected by Pope Innocent XI, who wanted to make him bishop of the Chinese missions; however, Navarrete refused. It was at this time (1676) that Navarrete's book was published in Madrid. Strongly anti-Jesuit, it was translated into most major European languages. It became particularly popular in England, and was admired by the French Jansenists and Voltaire.

        Il Malmantile Racquistato. Poema.

      nella Stamperia di Gio. Tommaso Rossi,, in Finaro [ma Firenze], 1676 - In-24° (145x82mm), cc. 8 nn., 300. Mancano, come alla quasi totalità degli esemplari, le 16 cc. nn. con un discorso del Cinelli contro molti letterati del suo tempo. Questa aggiunta venne proibita e, pertanto, la quasi totalità delle già pochissime copie che la contenevano (a detta di alcuni bibliografi solo 50) andò distrutta. L'Olschki e la Vinciana descrivono esemplari privi, come il nostro, di tali 16 cc. Legatura in p. pergamena con piatti coevi e dorso rivestito nel XIX secolo in altro tipo di pergamena, adorno di filetti e fregi in oro e di titolo in oro su tassello in pelle rossa. Sguardie rivestite nell'Ottocento in carta azzurra. Le cc. nn. iniziali contengono una lettera dell'autore all'Arciduchessa Claudia di Innsbruck (Inspruch), una breve "Vita dell'Autore", un indovinello di Antonio Malatesti ("Malmantile disfatto"), un'avvertenza al lettore di Giovanni Cinelli e tre ottave proemiali corrette. Ex-libris manoscritto antico in parte eliso alla prima c. bianca. Bruniture e fioriture sparse. Buon esemplare. Errori di numerazione; dalla pag. 202 si salta, per errore tipografico comune a tutti gli esemplari, a pag. 263, terminando poi a pag. 300. Edizione originale, apparsa postuma ed assai rara, del famoso poema eroicomico del pittore e letterato Lorenzo Lippi (Firenze, 1606-1664), inteso essenzialmente come burlesca parodia della "Gerusalemme Liberata". L'opera è imperniata sulla contesa tra Celidora e Bertinella per il reame di Malmantile, castello diroccato presso Signa. L'idea del poema venne all'autore del vecchio castello di Malmantile, a sette miglia da Firenze, ancorché il titolo venne allegoricamente desunto da "vecchie tovaglie da tavola"; esso serba un notevolissimo valore linguistico, in quanto il Lippi raccolse in esso i riboboli circolanti nella lingua viva del popolo fiorentino verso la meta' del 600. Nel poema figurano numerosi personaggi del tempo adombrati sotto nomi fittizi, come Salvator Rosa (Salvo Rosata), che era amico del Lippi, e Carlo Dati (Alticardo). Cat. Vinciana, 2940. Brunet, V, 1536. Graesse, VII, 516. Gamba, 594. Parenti, Luoghi di stampa falsi, p. 86: "Rarissima a trovarsi". Razzolini, p. 200. Olschki, Choix, XII, 18536.

        Kent with her Cities and Earles described and observed

      The Theatre of the Empire of Great Britain. T Bassett & R Chiswell., 1676.. Kent. Copper engraving. Hand coloured. Very good condition. Sheet size: 395 x 510 mm. Mount size: 590 x 705 mm A beautiful map of Kent based on the work of Philip Symonson. Insets of the cathedral cities of Canterbury and Rochester, and seven coats of arms. Due to Kent's extensive coastline, and proximity to France and the Netherlands, it had unrivalled advantages for trade, thus making its defence imperative. Dover Castle had long been a linchpin in the defence of the realm, but most other castles in Kent were made redundant when a series of modern artillery forts like Deal and Walmer were constructed in the 1540's by Henry VIII. These were to protect the anchorage of the Downs which the Navy had recently taken to using. The adoption of other fleet-anchorages along the Thames and the Medway, and the establishment of dockyards at Deptford and Woolwich by Henry VIII, and at Chatham by Elizabeth I, turned Kent into the best defended area in the kingdom throughout the Tudor and early Stuart periods.

Provenance: Bookplate of Carroll Alton Means. Wing S-696. Paolo Sarpi was an influential Venetian scholar and church reformer. After Pope Paul V excommunicated Venice and its possessions, Sarpi?s strong arguments against the Papal position made him the target of a Papal sponsored assassination (1607). Sarpi?s later work , Istoria del Concilio Tridentino (History of the Council of Trent), was an important critical work of the Catholic Church?s reformation, especially the the of the role curia. His history was widely read by Protestants, including John Milton, who called Sarpi ?the great unmasker.? ^ Peter Burke, The great unmasker: Paolo Sarpi, 1551-1613, History Today 15 (1965), p. 430.

        Nouvelle relation contenant les voyages de Thomas Gage dans la nouvelle Espagne, ses diverses aventures, et son retour dans la Province de Nicaragua jusqu'? la Havane

      Paris: Chez Cervais Clouzier, 1676 2 parts in one volume: 246 pages; 240 pages. Duodecimo (6 1/2" x 4") bound in leather with raised bands, spine label and gilt edges. (Sabin: 26303; Palau 96484) 1st French edition. Thomas Gage was born in England and died in Jamaica. His work, which recounts his life and travels as a Dominican friar in Mexico and Guatemala between 1625 and 1637, was first published in London in 1648, when the Puritan cause was victorious in England. This book is decidedly influenced by political and religious considerations and carries the deep impress of Gage's character, which in his later years was not a pleasant one. Gage wrote an eye-witness account of life and every-day events in the New World which made livelier reading than the impersonal narrative of the historian. In various descriptive passages Gage brings to life events of three centuries ago with marked resplendence. Condition: Back-strip ends worn with traces of sticker, rehinged, early owner's signature on title. Lacks second volume with parts III and IV. A good copy. . First French Edition. Full-Leather. Good. Duodecimo.

        America, with those known parts in that unknowne worlde both people and manner of buildings.

      London. 1676 - Size: 420 x 550 mm. Good condition. Restoration has been undertaken to all corners, some minor marginal repairs. Map has been cleaned. Copperplate engraving, with later older colour. A wonderfully decorative and pleasing map of the Americas by the famous English cartographer John Speed. The map was published by Bassett and Chiswell in London during the latter half of the seventeenth century. Three sides of the map depict either assorted Native Americans in tribal attire, or vignettes of the important cities and trading settlements then known within the Americas. California is shown as an island, and South America is somewhat misshapen. Sea monsters and galleons patrol the oceans. There is an inset map of Greenland, and a decorative, scrolled title cartouche. This is a famous and iconic map of The Americas, as seen through European eyes.

      Printed and Sold by Robert Walton, at ye Globes Compasses, just at the west end of St. Paul's-Church, [1676]., London, - England's Glory 430 by 550mm (17 by 21.75 inches). Hand-coloured engraved plan. Howgego 30. Detailed plan of the the City of London.The plan extends from Fleet Street in the west to the Tower of London in the east and from Finsbury Fields in the north to Bankside in the south. To the upper left and right is a list of public buildings, gates, bridges, and streets. The plan shows in detail the rebuilt City of London which the Great Fire had destroyed much of in 1666. One can clearly see the heart of what is now the financial district including Cheapside, Cornhill, Lombard Street, and Leadenhall Street, together with the Monument, St. Paul's, and the Tower of London. In the title, Walton is keen to stress the usefulness of the plan being, "a guide to strangers, and such as are not well acquainted herein to direct them from place to place". He goes on to write: "Divers faults yt are in ye former are in this amended". To which plan Walton was alluding is unclear; some have suggested that it was his: "Newest and Exactess Mapp of the most Famous Citties London.", of 1655 yet as this depicts a pre-Fire London it would seem unlikely. Most probably the plan is a revised state of an earlier, no longer extant, plan. This would also account for the rather haphazard placing of a large part of the explanatory text. The map can be reliably dated to 1676, as Walton advertised it for sale in the 'Term Catalogue' of May that year.Scale: 11 inches to 1 statute mile.

        Resuscitatio or Bringing into Publick Light Several Pieces of the Works Civil, Historical, Philosophical, and Theological, Hitherto Sleeping of the Right Honourable Francis Bacon [includes] A preparatory to the history natural & experimental [and] The natural and experimental history of winds

      London: W[illiam] G[odbid] for R Scot, T Basset [etc], 1676 Book. Illus. by Wenceslaus Hollar. Very Good. Leather Bound. 1st Edition. The 1676, third, and most complete edition of this collection of Bacon's shorter writings that includes several significant scientific works, notably The Natural and Experimental History of the Form of Hot Things and Of the Several Kinds of Motion. The folio volume is bound in seventeenth century calf with a blind fillet to the boards and a red morocco label to the spine of the book which has been invisibly relaid. The early ownership signature 'E libris Thome Kenyon 1692' appears on the first blank and an old collation note (complete) by the London bookdealers 'B Quaritch' is written in pencil to the inside of the lower cover. The text is indeed complete as called for, with the first Bacon portrait opposite the title page and the second by Hollar placed at the end of The Life of Bacon as is usual. This example of the book has the errata note at the foot of 1C2r still visible with the blank slip removed. Bacon's Resuscitatio went through several editions during this period and its reappearance is testimony to the writer's enduring influence in natural philosophy, politics and morals.

His translation of M??tamorphoses d\'Ovid in the form of a rondeaux was considered a failure and negatively affected his reputation. \"Benserade wrote rondeaus upon Ovid some of which are reckoned tolerable but upon the whole the attempt was too absurd for serious approbation and his Ovid without occasioning any controversy dropt into oblivion almost as soon as it was published, although it appeared in a highly ornamented 4to printed at Paris 1676 with engravings to the expence [sic] of which the king contributed 10,000 livres.\" (The General Biographical Dictionary, Chalmers).HBS 66663.$3,000

One illustration shows an airship carried by balloons. The first part of the Collegium experimentale is in its second edition and all others in their first editions. Sturm (1635-1703) was "reputedly the most skilled experimenter in Germany" (DBS IV, p. 166), he broke away from the classical scholastic approach, inaugurating modern science education in Germany.The first part of the Collegium experimentale was first published in 1676 together with the Auctaria, the latter with only a part-title. The second part was added in 1685. The present second edition includes only the first part and is therefore bound with the first editions of the second part and of the Auctaria. Sturm's Iridis admiranda forms a kind of supplement, with additional material on optics.With the bookplate of the library of the Berlin Gesellschaft naturforschender Freunde. In very good condition.
