LEEUWENHOEK, ANTON VAN
London: John Martyn for the Royal Society. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. FIRST PRINTINGS of Leeuwenhoeck's most important papers published in the Philosophical Transactions, including his discovery of bacteria and discovery of sperm. "News of some fascinating discoveries by Leeuwenhoek arrived in London in autumn 1676, contained in a long letter describing the results of his studies of water, which had continued throughout the previous year. The first set of observations, made in spring 1675, showed minute creatures which were smaller than the water flea… Although the existence of these creatures was surprising, they were still just visible to the naked eye… "Leeuwenhoek's true breakthrough came in spring 1676 when he tried to discover why pepper is hot… Unsurprisingly, Leeuwenhoek did not find out why pepper is hot. What he did see was far more exciting: four kinds of tiny animals, far smaller than could be seen with the naked eye, the smallest being around one-tenth the length of the eye of a louse, as he put it. These 'animals' were in fact protists (tine single-celled organisms) and bacteria, and Leeuwenhoek was the first person to see them… "Leeuwenhoek had shown that a huge number of minute organisms existed below the threshold of perception, with the theoretical possibility that there might be even smaller 'animals' again, carrying on into the infinitely minute. These incredible observations suggested that life knew no physical boundaries" (Cobb, Generation: The Seventeenth-Century Scientists who Unraveled the … [Click Below for Full Description]

Forderer" im Titel. - "Eine persönliche Begegnung mit Jakob Böhme prägte den jungen schlesischen Landadeligen Abraham von Franckenberg (1593-1652) für sein weiteres Leben: er brach sein Studium ab und gab sich ganz mystisch-naturphilosophischen Spekulationen hin. Eine seiner bekanntesten Veröffentlichungen ist der Raphael oder Artzt-Engel, ein in der Tradition der im siebzehnten Jahrhundert blühenden Naturmystik verfasstes Medizinbuch. Franckenberg war wie Jakob Böhme in Deutschland mit Druckverboten belegt, er veröffentlichte teils unter Pseudonym, zum Teil kamen seine Schriften posthum unter die Presse. Dieses Schicksal teilt auch Raphael, der erst über zwanzig Jahre nachdem er verfasst worden war in Holland im Druck erscheinen konnte. Der im Titel genannte Mediziner "A. S." ist wohl Angelus Silesius (Dünnhaupt). Der geheimnisvolle Kupfertitel zeigt das Auge Gottes im trinitarischen Dreieck, umgeben von einem kreisförmigen, strahlenden Nimbus."

SCHOUTEN, Wouter
Amsterdam,: Jacob von Meurs u. Johannes von Sommern, 1676.. Folio, title page printed in red and black; extra engraved title, engraved portrait, and 19 double-page engraved plates, with one full page engraving and many more engravings in the text; some browning to a number of the plates, as appears to happen frequently; small water-stain in lower fore-corners; the second part with engraving on the title page and 13 engraved plates; a handsome copy in old limp vellum with ties, spine lettered in ink. First German edition, published simultaneously with the Dutch edition. This German version however has an extra part added (see below). Many times reprinted, in different forms, the main work is by Schouten (his name is translated here as Walter Schultzen), a VOC ship's doctor whose description of his voyage to and experiences over several years in the East Indies and at the Cape of Good Hope gives one of the most famous descriptions of the Dutch (and Portuguese) settlements in the East Indies. It is a tremendous visual resource, with views of Malacca, Batavia, Macassar, Ternate, Aniboina, Point de Galle, Colombo, Negapatam and elsewhere. These richly inked detailed engravings were used to great advantage by the Golden Cockerel Press to illustrate their publication of a translation of Jean de Lacombe's voyages to the East Indies (A Compendium of the East, 1937).Lach, who quotes frequently from Schouten in his Asia in the Making of Europe, describes Schouten's work as 'one of the best' of the several descriptions of Java which appeared in the last quarter of the seventeenth centu … [Click Below for Full Description]

HORATIUS.
Amsterdam, apud D. Elzevirium, 1676. Liten 8:o. Grav. titelblad,234,(3) s. Samtida ngt nött och lite solkigt pergamentbd med handskriven ryggtitel. Försätts- och titelbladet lite loss och ngt solkiga. Spridda fläckar, i synnerhet i marginalen. Anteckningar på eftersättsbladen sannolikt av C. J. Ramsten. Med Andreas Rubenius, Andreas Rydelius, P. Hillethans (?), Petrus Twist, Haqvin Wengbergs och Carl Johan Ramstens namnteckningar, den sistnämnda daterad den 16 april 1814. Willems Les Elzevier 1517: "cette édition d'Horace est fort jolie, mais on dit qu'elle laisse à désirer au point de vue de la correction". Andreas (Anders) Rubenius (1666-97) var domkyrkosyssloman i Växjö och präst i Stoby och Sandby församling 1695-97. Andreas Rydelius (1671-1738) var professor i filosofi och teologi i Lund och sedermera biskop i samma stad. I sina ambitioner att förena det filosofiska vetandet med den kristna uppenbarelsetron konstruerade han ett eget filosofiskt system som till stor del byggde på en fördomsfri forskningsanda. Rydelius fick flera betydande lärjungar, bl.a. Dalin, Nehrman-Ehrenstråle, Rosén von Rosenstein och räknas som en av föregångsmännen till den svenska frihetstidens rationalism. Exemplaret har eventuellt även tillhört Paul Hilletan (1686-1748), auskulant i Göta hovrätt och överjägmästare i Södermanland. Peter Twist (född ca 1709) var enligt Hammarsköld i sin samtid "mycket tadlad" för sin översättning av "Aeniden" och karaktäriseras som "en afkomling af Lohensteins efterhärmande i Sverige".

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.

SPEED, J
London, 1676. No Binding. Near Fine. 14 3/4 x 19 ¼ inches. Fine hand color; wear to bottom of centerfold, else fine condition. A very attractive, near-mint example. Speed's handsomely engraved work is one of the earliest English maps of the area and one of the first to demarcate the borders of colonial Virginia and Maryland. Just three years before the publication of Speed's map, Augustine Herrman had conducted the first thorough surveys of Maryland at the behest of Lord Baltimore. Speed's was one of the first maps to adopt this groundbreaking cartography. However, in general outline Speed still followed the prototype of Captain John Smith, who conducted the first European survey of Chesapeake Bay. Speed's map "is the last major derivative of the Smith map, and it is unique as an example of the transition from one basic prototype map to another. The delineation of the land area follows Smith while the toponymic prototype was the Herrman map of 1673." (Verner in Tooley, Mapping of America, p.170) A particularly important feature derived from Herrman by Speed is the boundary line (indicated by a double row of trees) between Virginia and Maryland on the Eastern Shore. English text on the verso contains extensive descriptions of Virginia and Maryland.

HUYGENS, Christian.
Huygens' pathbreaking exposition of his wave theory of light. Huygens had developed his theory of light in 1676 and 1677, and completed his Traité de la Lumière 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

[v.p., May-August 1676] Manuscript folio (14 x 9 inches) 2 full-page maps handcolored in outline, one in-text map of the Shetland Islands, one double-page map in ink and wash of "Mount Missery," 3 ink and wash text illustrations, including one of a walrus and her calf, 18 pages of text within rules. Eighteenth-century marbled wrappers, strips of marbled paper pieced along lower margin and fore-edge of lower wrapper (edges somewhat worn and frayed), in half red morocco case. Provenance: Bookplate of the Duke of Hamilton. AN EARLY FIRSTHAND ACCOUNT OF THE QUEST FOR THE NORTHWEST PASSAGE. In 1493 to defuse trade disputes Pope Alexander VI split the discovered world in two between Spain and Portugal, leaving France, the Netherlands and England without a sea route to the trading nations of Asia. The desire to establish such a route motivated much of the European exploration of both coasts of North America. When it became apparent that there was no route through the heart of the continent, attention turned to the possibility of a passage through northern waters. It was not until 1906 that passage from Greenland to Alaska was successfully navigated. At the command of King Charles II, the expedition set out from Deptford 6 May 1676. It consisted of two ships, the Speedwell, commanded by Captain John Wood with Greenville Collins as its master, and the Prosperous, commanded by Captain William Flawes. As shown by Collins's map, they sailed north toward Greenland, and then east along the ice north of Russia, through the Barents Sea. On 29 June, the Speedwell ran aground and was wrec … [Click Below for Full Description]

ROEMER, Ole.
Very rare first appearance of the discovery of the finite nature of the velocity of light. In 1676 Ole Rømer (1644-1710) made "the first quantitative measurement of the speed of light, having hypothesized the finite velocity from observations of the satellites of Jupiter. The timing of the eclipses of the satellites varies systematically with the relative positions of the earth, sun, and Jupiter; and Römer 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. The measurements indicate that light takes 11 minutes to cross the diameter of the earth's orbit."(Parkinson: Breakthroughs, 116). See also the note for Dibner 146. <br/><br/> Rømer's results were first reported in the <i>Journal des sçavans</i> on 7 December. The original Paris printing in quarto of the <i>Journal des sçavans</i> (as offered here) is highly rare (not to be confused with the common Amsterdam reprint in duodec). <br/><br/> "Römer's greatest work ... grew out of the problem that he had initially considered with Picard, the times of the occultations of the satellites of Jupiter. These measurements were of considerable practical use, since it was recognized soon after the discovery of the Jovian satellites that their frequent occultations- particularly those of the first satellite, Io-by the planet itself represent well-defined moments of celestial time, which may be compared with time at the place of observation t … [Click Below for Full Description]

Lyon, Jean Thioly, 1676, in 12, de 6 ff. 439 pp. 4 ff., faux-titre gravé et 3 planches gravées se dépl. représentant des fourneaux et des ustensiles divers, pl vélin époque, petits trous de ver aux 40 derniers ff. sans atteinte au texte, une planche dépl. restaurée aux pliures et marge inférieure lég. effrangée pour les autres, sinon bon exemplaire. Glaser fut un chimiste réputé en son temps, surtout dans les préparations des poisons. C'est à la suite de la mort de Glaser et de Sainte-Croix dans un accident de laboratoire que la justice se saisit de documents qui conduisirent à l'arrestation de la Marquise de Brinvilliers et de ses complices: ce fut le point de départ de l'affaire des poisons. Lors de son procès, la Brinvilliers déclara que Fouquet avait envoyé Glaser étudier à Florence l'action des poisons italiens; il découvrit entre autres le chlorure d'arsenic et le sous-nitrate de bismuth. Moyse Charas, collègue de Glaser au Jardin Royal des Plantes, s'attribue la paternité de cet ouvrage dans la préface de sa "Thériaque d'Andromachus" Paris 1668: " ... J'aimay mieux le publier sous le nom de Christophe Glaser, que d'y faire voir le mien..." ¶ Caillet 2201 (pour d'autres éditions) - Dorbon 1873/75 (pour d'autres éditions) - Duveen p.251 pour l'e.o.

KIRCHER, ATHANASIUS. - [ONE OF THE EARLIEST ATTEMPTS AT DECIPHERING HIEROGLYPHS]
Amsterdam, Officina Janssonio-Waesbergiana, 1676. Folio. Contemporary full mottled calf with five raised bands to richly gilt spine. A few larger dampstains to boards, and corners bumped. With the engraved book plate of "Marchion Raymundi Sorbolunghi" to inside of front board. Browned throughout and a dampstain to last half. Woodcut title-vignette, woodcut initials, numerous large (both half and 1/4 page) and smaller woodcut text-illustrations throughout, and 6 engraved text-illustrations (mostly 1/3 page, depicting mummies, mummy-cases, and various scenes). (16), 72, (6) pp. + 5 engraved plates, two of which are engraved, three of which are folded. ¶ The rare (presumed) first edition of Kircher's great work on Egyptian hieroglyphs, one of the earliest attempts to decipher the signs in modern times. Although we now know that his results were wrong, they were believed at the time, Kircher was considered the ultimate authority on hieroglyphic writing, and his works on the subject were greatly influential, not least in creating a strong interest for the Egyptian language and culture, resulting in numerous publications on the subject throughout the 18th century. To a certain extent, it is also Kircher's theories that later generations built upon when attempting to crack the code of the hieroglyphs.According to Graesse, there should have been an earlier edition of the "Sphinx", printed the same year, but in Rome. We have not been able to find any other references to this edition, neither in other bibliographies, nor in library holdings.

Page 226 misnumbered as p. 234 in Articles of Enquiry, which itself is separately numbered; separate title page for each inclusion. Small folio (20 cm x 30 cm) in full contemporary leather, five raised bands, gilt title and decoration to spine; absent any frontis, plates; chips to margin of first few pages; hinges and tips expertly repaired. Contemporary marginalia, in ink and pencil, has been retained as part of the ‘life’ of this book, which from all appearances has been closely studied and carefully kept. A pleasing copy of this tenth edition-- a sort of Bacon anthology, originally compiled by Rawley shortly after Bacon’s death, and exemplifying the ‘new thinking’ which anticipated later systematic scientific investigation, formation of Royal societies, and the like. In view of the importance usually attached to Bacon’s work, then, it is worth noting the last entry in Sylva Sylvarum is ‘His Lordships usual Receipt for the Gout.’ [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Cooper, 1676. A fine copy of the first English auction catalogue; this is a rare book on the market (and, according to ESTC, not at all common in libraries). "The library sold was that of Lazarus Seaman (d. 1675), Puritan divine and one-time master of Peterhouse; he is today primarily remembered as the owner of the books which furnished the material for the first English book auction. There were 5,571 lots, divided into four sections according to size, each subdivided according to subjects. The sale realized over 700 pounds, the highest price achieved being 8 pounds 2s for St. John Chrysostom's Opera, Paris 1636."-Breslauer & Folter, Bibliography, 74. "The idea of an auction had been suggested to Dr Seaman's executors by Joseph Hill, a presbyterian minister who had left England for Holland in 1662 because of the Act of Uniformity. He was pastor of the Scottish Church at Middelburg, until he was forced to return to England in 1673 during the Anglo-Dutch War. More than twenty years later Edward Millington in a letter of 25 June 1697 about other matters thanked Hill 'for your great Service done to Learning and Learned Men in your first advising and effectually setting on foot that admirable and universally approved way of selling Librarys by Auction amongst us'."-Pollard & Ehrman … [Click Below for Full Description]

There he received the support of the physicians John Maplet and Samuel Bave, both long established in the city and Guidott soon built up his practice. Guidott also worked to establish a national reputation for both himself and for the city of Bath and from 1669 he published a series of works about the waters of Bath, about Bath's history as a therapeutic centre and about the physicians of Bath. Guidott's reputation was such that he was offered positions as professor at both Venice and Leiden. Guidott declined, remaining in Bath where he carried out experiments on the chemical composition of its waters. In this work he discusses his analyses of Bath waters which showed that the water contains nitre, sulphur and several salts of metals. , 8vo 8" - 9" tall, [32] 200 pp .
