Gualdo Priorato, Galeazzo.
Folio (224 x 340 mm). (4), 60 (misnumbered: 58) pp. With 7 engraved plates (some folding). Contemporary wrappers with marbled spine. Only edition of this work published in celebration of the wedding of Emperor Leopold I to Eleonore Magdalene of Pfalz-Neuburg, Leopold's third (and final) marriage. The fervently Catholic Eleonore had previously turned down a proposal by the later King James II of England (himself a Catholic); among the couple's issue were future Emperors Joseph I and Charles VI. The plates show views of Neuburg on the Inn near Passau (the entrances of December 11 and 12, 1676), various triumphal arches (including that in Passau), and the great Vienna fireworks of February 2, 1677, in honour of the Imperial couple. The Italian diplomat G. Gualdo Priorato (1606-78), "officier supérieur, tacticien, diplomate et l'un des plus féconde historiens italiens" (NBG XXII, 307), served as historian to the Vienna court. - Occasional foxing and insignificant waterstains; contains four plates more than asked for by Mayer. Appealingly preserved. Mayer I, Nr. 1859. ICCU VIAE\007631. Not in Ruggieri.

SPINOZA, Baruch
[Jan Rieuwertsz], 1677. [Amsterdam]: [Jan Rieuwertsz],, 1677. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good/none. First Edition of Spinoza’s Masterwork – Ethica, Ordine Geometrico demonstrata SPINOZA, Baruch. Opera Postuma, Quorum series post Præfationem exhibetur. [Jan Rieuwertsz], [Amsterdam], 1677. TP + 18 leaves = Præfatio + half title + [1]-614 + 16 leaves = Index Rerum + half title + 1-112 + 4 leaves = Indiculus & Errata. First Edition. Published in the year of Spinoza's death, this posthumous collection was edited by his close friend, Jarig Jelles, whose preface, originally written in Dutch, was translated into Latin by L. Meyer. Spinoza had contemplated publishing his Ethica two years earlier but the furor over his supposed atheism forced him to postpone the book’s release. The day before his death, Spinoza arranged for these works to be published by sending them to Jan Rieuwertsz who had previously published his Principia on Descartes and the Tractatus-theologico-politicus. In the Ethica, Spinoza sought to apply the "geometric method" and mathematical reasoning to metaphysics resulting in what is considered to be the first systematic exposition of pantheism wherein God is identified with the entire universe. This is the work upon which Spinoza's reputation as a philosopher, a rationalist and an atheist chiefly rests. In addition, the book contains the Politica, De emendatione intellectus, Epistolae, & ad eas responsiones, and the Compendium grammaticus linguae Hebraeae (with separate half-title and pagination). &#1 … [Click Below for Full Description]

PEYER, Johann Conrad
Schaffhausen: Onophrius a Waldkirch, 1677. 1st Edition. Soft cover. Very Good. 1st Edition. Soft cover. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. 8vo (150x94 mm), [28], 136, [6] pp. Separate half-title for the second text, 3 folding engraved plates, 3 leaves of plate explanations (possible cut and separated from one leaf) bound next to plates within text, title-page somewhat creased and with small tear to top margin not affecting text. Only little browned, otherwise clean and unmarked. Without cover (paper strip to spine). Good copy of an exceedingly rare work. ---- ADB XXV, 568; Garrison-Morton 1100; Waller 7359; Hirsch-Hubotter IV, 550 - FIRST EDITION. During the period when Peyer and his associates were conducting their research in Schaffhausen, the chemical processes governing digestion were unknown. In the present book, Peyer described what has come to be called "Peyer's patches," the lymphoid follicles in the small intestine that play a role in typhoid fever. Extremely rare: 9 copies located in OCLC. One copy with the same number of plates sold at Sotheby's in 2001 (Friedman Medical Library sale) for $13,200. Erstes und wohl folgenreichstes Werk des Schweizer Mediziners Peyer (1653-1712), in der er die 'Noduli lymphatici aggregatii' des menschlichen Dünndarmes beschrieb, die er irrtümlich fur Drüsen hielt. Dieser Irrtum hielt sich bis in die Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts, als Brucke den lymphatischen Charakter der vermeintlichen Drüsen erkannte. Obwohl schon 1645 Marco Aurelio Severino diese Strukturen beschrieben hatte, sind sie bis heute in der Medizin als "Peyersche Platten" … [Click Below for Full Description]

Cartesio (La Haye 1596- Stoccolma 1650) fu uno dei massimi esponenti della filosofia meccanica; egli diede l'avvio al meccanicismo biologico degli iatromeccanici ed alla progressiva sostituzione con chimica e fisica dei principi della tradizione vitalistica; considera il corpo umano come una macchina guidata da un'anima razionale, situata nella ghiandola pineale, che controlla le funzioni dei movimenti: ad esempio i pensieri vengono trasformati in azioni e parole, mentre altre azioni "semplici"come sbadigli, contrazioni della pupilla, respirazione, deglutizione sono azioni ordinarie che dipendono "dal corso degli spiriti "che "sono posti come venticelli sottili nei nervi"; egli riconobbe l'importanza della scoperta di Harvey sulla circolazione sanguigna, ma non credette al fatto che il cuore potesse con le sue contrazioni pulsare il sangue in tutto l'organism … [Click Below for Full Description]

I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. "The designs and style of Raleigh's 'History of the World' places the book among the noblest of literary enterprises" - DNB Sir Walter Raleigh, a 16th-century English explorer and writer, is most known for his South American voyage in hopes of discovering the 'City of Gold'. While imprisoned for treason, he composed his famous book 'History of the World' - a historical view of the world with a heavy emphasis on geography. Even though the work was written as a history book, Raleigh intended to provide advice to King James I of England on how to handle his reign and his feelings toward princes. This 1677 early edition includes a life of the author, which is attributed to John Shirley (Brushfield). Brushfield continues on this work: "After its publication in 1614, the king endeavored to suppress it. This was not carried into effect, as the work was published [and] three separate issues of it appeared the same year. But [the first] and the second edition of 1617 were destitute of [printed] title-pages; and as these alone contained the name of the author, the work was virtually anonymous" This work covers five distinct sections, each of which is charmingly illustrated with city views, maps, and plans by William Hole: · Creation of the world through life of Abraham · Abraham through the destruction of Solomon's Temple · Fall of Jerusalem to Philip of Macedonia · Reign of Philip to rise of Antigonus · Rule of Alexander the Great through Roman conquests.

ORIGEN;
I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Origen was a 3rd-century Greek scholar and early Christian theologian. He was a prolific writer known for his biblical exegeses, philosophy, and sermons, and was one of the most influential figures in early Christian asceticism. (Finn, 100). Origen's final treatise, 'Philokalia : Contra Celsum' or 'Against Celsus,' was a response to a literary attack on Christianity by an unknown pagan philosopher named Celsus. Saint Ambrose requested Origen write this book, a book that referenced Greek philosophers, poetry, and the Bible as a rational basis for holding steadfast to the Christian faith. (Heine, 127). Origen's response is considered to be the ultimate apology of Christianity. 'Philokalia' is a collection of the original experts from Origen's work. This 1677 edition was produced by Cambridge fellow William Spencer. Spencer made vast and significant improvements to the Latin translation originally made by Czech writer Sigismund Gelenius in 1557. Subsequent editions would continue to use the William Spencer translation and notes, even though not all editions are nearly as desirable or accurate. [Attributes: First Edition]

1677. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. A history of the Knights Hospitaller, The Siege of Rhodes, and Ottoman Sultans! Many Dominique Bouhours works went through several edits and criticized editions. While a large number of the works are well respected, others are considered to be less than authoritative. This work, 'The History of Pierre d'Aubusson,' is one of those works. This book loosely follows the story of his youth. However, what the work does provide is an adequate portrayal of the Knights Hospitaller and the 15th-century Ottoman Empire. The majority of the work, however, focuses on the Siege of Rhodes in 1480, where the Ottoman invasion of Rhodes was thwarted by d'Aubusson, Grand Master and portions of the French army. In 1480, d'Aubusson was awarded the title 'Defender of Christendom' for his defeat of Mahomet II's army. This work is a rare work on the history of Turkey, Ottoman viziers and sultans, Rhodes, and the religious battles between Islamic states and Jesuit/Catholic Europe. Illustrations by Gantrel and Cassin include: · City plan of Rhodes. [Attributes: First Edition]

His travels began at Mexico, where he started a missionary journey that would last for 12 years, getting to know the land and local costumes.
