        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

First edition of this biography of the two members of the Kiuprili family who delayed the decline of the Ottoman empire between 1656 adn 1676. Geschichte der Großwesire Köprülü Mehmed Pasha (1578-1661 anderslautend Geburtsjahr 1596. Zunächst Koch im Serail; danach Oberstallmeister; danach Beylerbey von Kjustendil in Bulgarien und Tripolis im Libanon; stellvertretender Statthalter in Damaskus; Statthalter in Konya; 1650 Wesir; Beylerbey von Tripolis; 1656 von Sultan Mehmed IV. zum Großwesir ernannt) und Köprülü Fazil Ahmed Pascha (1635 bis 1676). Er führte in den Jahren 1663 und 1664 einen Feldzug gegen den habsburgischen Teil Ungarns. Nachdem er mehrere Festungen erobert hatte, erlitt er bei der Schlacht von St. Gotthard eine Niederlage und sah sich gezwungen, mit Österreich unter Habsburg den Frieden von Eisenburg zu schließen, der allerdings viele der türkischen Eroberungen sicherte. Der kaiserliche Feldherr Montecuccoli war wegen der Schwächen seines Heeres nicht in der Lage, den Sieg auszunützen, deswegen blieb Fazil Ahmed Paschas Einfluss auf den Sultan ungebrochen. Am 14. Mai 1666 begann er die Belagerung von Candia auf Kreta, das zur Republik Venedig gehörte und erst am 17. September 1669 fiel. Der nächste von ihm geführte Krieg war 1672 der gegen Polen-Litauen zur erbetenen Hilfeleistung für die ukrainischen Kosaken unter Petro Doroschenko. Zunächst erfolgreich im Rahmen des Friedens zu Buczacz, wurde Ahmed Pascha von den Polen unter ihrem Großkronhetman Jan Sobieski bei Chocim und Lemberg geschlagen. Am 22. Oktober 1674 kehrte er todkrank, angeblich Ödem wegen Alkoholismus, nach Edirne zurück. Die Türken behaupteten sich aber auch weiterhin und stimmten den ehrenhaften Bedingungen im Frieden von Z.urawno vom 17. Oktober 1676 zu, durch den sie die Festung Kamieniec Podolski, große Teile Podoliens und der südlichen Ukraine behielten. (Osmanisch-Polnischer Krieg 1672-1676).

      Printed for Richard Marriot, London 1676 - In a modern full morocco binding with five raised bands, gilt titling and spine compartments, all edges gilt, and marbled end-papers. A complete copy with printed title pages for the work as a whole as well as the first and second parts, engraved title pages for the first and third parts and the license leaf preceding the second part. Margins trimmed too closely with partial loss of the last line on the engraved title to the first part, no other pages with the text affected (pages approximately 85 x 139 mm). Internal contents generally clean and unfoxed.Walton';s famous pastoral work on fishing, "The Compleat Angler," is combined here with additions by Robert Venables and Charles Cotton on the art of fly fishing in particular. Walton was the children of innkeepers who moved to London to become an ironmonger but would spend the last forty years of his life collecting information on fishing to add to the work. The book was first published in 1653 but re-released in numerous editions both due to its popularity and Walton';s propensity to revise and contribute more chapters to it. It has stayed in print since it was first published and is noted for its well observed descriptions of English country life. "The Compleat Angler has something in common with 'Lady Chatterley';s Lover:' while many know the title, few have actually read it. Yet it';s the most frequently reprinted book in the English language after the Bible." (The Guardian). First combined edition: Fifth edition of the Walton, First edition of the Cotton, and Fourth edition of the Venables [Attributes: First Edition]

        The Doctrine of Devils proved to be the grand Apostacy of these later times. An Essay tending to rectifie those Undue Notions and Apprehensions Men have about Daemons and Evil Spirits.

      Printed for the author and are to be sold at the Kings-Arms in the Poultry, London 1676 - Hardcover. Small octavo. [viii] + 206pp. Near contemporary brown full leather (sheepskin?) binding, with blind rules to boards. A major early challenge to the belief in witchcraft, and therefore the persecution of witches. Anonymously published only a year before John Wesbster's, "The Displaying of Supposed Witchcraft," the book is generally attributed to Thomas Ady, although the translator of the Dutch edition of 1691 ascribed it to a New England clergyman named "N. Orchard." Whoever the author was his book comprised a spirited attack on the belief in withcraft and the powers of evil spirits and demons based both on common sense and theological grounds. In particular he argued that the enormous and varied powers that popular belief attributed to witches and demons were not only false but un-Christian in that it undermined the unique nature of the incarnation and miracles of Christ, and indeed of God, hence the "grand Apostacy" of the book's title. He declared that as a consequence of these beliefs the country had of recent "been defiled and polluted, with blood of Innocents" arguing that therefore this "Doctrine of Devils, is a most abominable Heterodox: yea, without this consequence of blood-guiltiness (which yet no doubt must aggravate), once, this it is an Apostacy, the great, or greatest that ever was in the World, or peradventure ever shall, or can be." (p. 2) From the collection of Dr. M. H. Coleman, with his ex-libris seal blind-stamped on the front free endpaper. Spine & boards rubbed but solid. Page-edges browned & discolored, some interesting contemporary annotations on inside of rear board and a few minor early ink marks to fore-edge margins. Modest chip missing from fore-edge of both front free endpaper & first blank. Page 113/114 has a small burn hole affecting a few letters of text.

Edition Originale du principal ouvrage du philosophe et historien allemand Johann Andreas Bose (1624-1674), éditée par G. Schubart. Ce volume, qui situe Bose parmi les fondateurs de la statistique, contient ses réflexions sur la façon d'étudier les sociétés humaines où il se montre précurseur en affirmant la necessité des recherches pluridisciplinaires: économiques, politiques, religieuses, scientifiques, historiques, géographiques, etc. Nombreuses références aux grandes découvertes géographiques, notamment en Amérique. Bose occupa la chaire d'histoire à l'Université de Jena en 1654 et fut nommé recteur en 1661. Il eut pour disciples Leibnitz et Puffendorf. Certains de ses ouvrages furent mis à l'Index.

He shortened Phillips' already brief definitions in order to include more words and more etymological information. Coles did break new ground in including cant (thieves' argot) and dialectical terms. These, taken from other specialized dictionaries, had never before been included in a general English dictionary"" (Landau, Dictionaries, p. 43). Not common: Alston locates 10 copies worldwide (4 in the U.S.) not found in OCLC or RLIN; ESTC finds 4 in the U.K and 5 (Folger, Huntington, Penn., Yale, and Minnesota) in the U.S. Alston V, 63; Kennedy 6183; Wing C-5070."

        Traité de la Lumière. Où sont expliquées les Causes de ce qui luy arrive dans la Reflexion, & dans la Refraction. Et particulierement dans l'etrange Refraction du Cristal d'Islande ... Avec un Discours de la Cause de la Pesanteur.Leyden: Pierre vander Aa, 1690. First edition.

      An excellent copy of Huygens' pathbreaking exposition of his wave theory of light. &#10087;Grolier/Horblit, One Hundred Books Famous in Science 54; Dibner, Heralds of Science 145; Evans, First Editions of Epochal Achievements in the History of Science 32; Sparrow, Milestones of Science 111.<br/><br/> Huygens had developed his theory of light in 1676 and 1677, and completed his <i>Traité de la Lumière</i> in 1678. He read portions of the treatise to the Academy during the following year but left it unpublished, until Newton's <i>Principia</i> (1687) and a visit with Newton in 1689 stimulated him to have it printed at last. "Light, according to Huygens, is an irregular series of shock waves which proceeds with very great, but finite, velocity through the ether. This ether consists of uniformly minute, elastic particles compressed very close together. Light, therefore, is not an actual transference of matter but rather of a 'tendency to move', a serial displacement similar to a collision which proceeds through a row of balls ... Huygens therefore concluded that new wave fronts originate around each particle that is touched by light and extend outward from the particle in the form of hemispheres..." (DSB). Huygens was able to explain reflection and refraction using this theory, of which he became completely convinced in August 6, 1677, when he found that it explained the double refraction in Iceland spar. His view of light was opposed to the corpuscular theory of light advanced by Newton. <br/><br/> In the second part of the work, the <i>Discours de la cause de la pesanteur</i>, written in 1669, Huygens expounded his vortex theory of gravity, a purely mechanistic theory that also contrasted markedly with Newton's notion of a universal attractional force intrinsic to matter. Indeed, Huygens added to the original treatise of 1669 a review of Newton's theory, rejecting it out of hand because of the impossibility of explaining it by any mechanical principle or law of motion. Huygens' work fell into oblivion during the following century, but his theory of light was confirmed at the beginning of the 19th century by Thomas Young, who used it to explain optical interference, and by Jean-Augustin Fresnel a few years later. Modern physics has reconciled Newton's and Huygens' theories in discerning both corpuscular and wave characteristics in the properties of light.. 4to (199 x 160 mm), pp [8], 124, [2: part title], 125-128, [2:index], 129-180, fine contemporarym and completely untouched, calf with raised bands and richly gilt spine, some rubbing and chipping to capitals but entirely unrestored and in its original state, internally crsip and clean and on good thick paper - an excellent copy. There are two states of the two title leaves: one in which both titles have the author's initials, "C. H. D. Z." (Christian Huygens der Zeelhem); the other in which the author's name is given in full on both titles, "Christian Huygens, Signeur de Zeelhem". This copy is with the author's initials on both titles (no priority established)
