Francis Bacon, Francis Godwyn
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.

STURM, Johann Christoph.
VD 17, 3:007468K, 3:007464D, 3:006536A, 39:120086P (ad 2-4 plus the 1676 ed. of ad 1); not in Haskell Norman; Honeyman; Roberts & Trent, Bibliotheca Mechanica. A complete and well-illustrated course in practical science, including mechanics, optics, hydraulics, pneumatics, thermodynamics, mensuration and other subjects, with most of the folding plates showing diagrams for optics. 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.

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.

COLLINS, Anthony
1676. First edition of the key work by Locke's main follower and close friend Anthony Collins (1676-1729), bound with three very early responses, all published in the same year. Provenance: the lawyer John Orlebar (1697-1765) served as Whig MP for Bedford from 1727 onwards. 'The right and the necessity to inquire freely and fearlessly into all subjects, especially religion, was Collins' constant and fundamental thesis. Its master statement is the Discourse of Free-Thinking . [in which] . Collins pointed out that the new science and the new philosophy had exposed many errors of the past; the Reformation was the result of fearless thinking on the part of a few leaders; the abundant literature of travel exposed the superstitions of peoples throughout the world and also the infinite numbers of pretenders to divine revelation. Freedom had exorcised the witches that so plagued James I and Charles I . The Bible, Collins continued, is clearly replete with corrupted texts -- 30,000 in the New Testament alone, according to one authority. Its text, therefore, is to be examined in the same scholarly and critical manner as the texts of all ancient books. The Discourse concluded with a refutation of the standard objections to freethinking. Atheism is not, after all, the worst of all evils; enthusiasm and superstition hold that title' (E.C. Mossner in The Encyclopedia of Philosophy). PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: 4 works in one volume, 8vo, 178, iii-vi, 31, [1], 85, [iv], 82, [1], 48 pp., contemporary panelled calf, joints cracked but holding firm, spine crinkled, extremities rubbed, contents lis … [Click Below for Full Description]
