Henri Spondanus (Henri de Sponde) A convert from Calvinism, Bishop of Pamiers, born at Mauléon, in the Basses-Pyrénées 6 January 1568; died at Toulouse 18 May 1643. After studying humanities at the Calvinist college of Orthez, he accompanied the royal ambassador to Scotland and, upon his return, took up the study of jurisprudence. In 1589 he was jurist at the Parliament of Tours. Convinced of the truth of the Catholic religion by the writings of Bellarmine and the instructions of Duperron he became a Catholic 21 Sept. 1595. In 1600 he accompanied Cardinal de Sourdis to Rome where he was ordained a priest on 7 March 1606. Pope Paul V then appointed him reviser of the briefs of the Poenitentiaria. In 1625 he was created Bishop of Pamiers, in which capacity he laboured with great zeal for the preservation of Catholicism and converted numerous Protestants. Owing to ill-health he resigned his diocese in 1639 and retired to Toulouse. His writings are: "Les cimetières sacrés" (Bordeaux, 1596); "Annales ecclesiastici Cæsaris Baronii in Epitomen redacti" (Paris, 1612); "Annales sacri a mundi creatione ad ejusdem redemptionem" (Paris, 1637), an epitome of the "Annals" of Tornielle; "Annalium Baronii continuatio ab a. 1197 quo is desinit ad a. 1622" (Paris, 1639). This work is Sponde's continuation of The Venerable Baronius Caesar's master work "Annales ecclesiastici a Christi nato ad annum 1198" ( The History of The Church from The Nativity until the Year 1198) Baronius Caesar (1538-1607), Italian ecclesiastical historian, Cardinal of the Roman Catholic Church. He went to Rome c.1557 and soon came under the tutelage of St. Philip Neri. His chief work, the Annales ecclesiastici a Christi nato ad annum 1198 (1588-1607) (Ecclesiastical Annals from the Nativity to the year 1198) was a response to the Lutheran, Historia Ecclesiae Christi (1559-74) (History of the Church of Christ). As Vatican librarian, Baronius had access to the sources in the archives. His use of this material and his inclusion of many previously unpublished sources accounts for the completeness and usefulness of the Annales. Its accuracy has been questioned by Protestant critics. Baronius was a strong defender of the Papacy and was largely responsible for the Roman martyrology. He became superior of the Oratory (1593) on St. Philip Neri's death, a cardinal (1596), and was confessor to Pope Clement VIII.

      London: Richard Royston, 1678. First edition. Hardcover. Folio. pp.[20], 899, [85]. With frontispiece engraving by R. White after the painting by Jan Batista Caespers. Lacking the two advertisement leaves in the rear. Title is printed in red and black. All published. Page numbering is erratic but text is continuous. Interior pages contain some scattered foxing; an occasional page is moderately age-toned or uniformly foxed; periodic mild soiling, staining and general wear are present.

A chip (15 mm long) is carefully patched on the inner edge of the frontispiece but skims the image by 4 mm inwards; a marginal tear, running half way along the outer edge of the impression is professionally sealed; the bottom margin of the plate is trimmed a few millimeters. The title page contains a name printed in an old hand; a spot of staining is present on the upper margin of the title (same on the frontispiece).

An old spine label is preserved. Ralph Cudworth (1617-1688) was an English theologian and a member of the so-called Cambridge Platonist circle which included the likes of Henry More. Cudworth’s “Intellectual System of the Universe” was an attempt to reconcile Atomism with Platonism and the belief that humans have immortal souls. The author theorizes that there is a plastic nature or aether which forms the basis of matter. The work contains much discussion of ancient philosophy, religion and esoteric doctrines. A second part to the work was planned but never published. [Caillet 2717; ESTC R27278; Neville I, p.314]

Lagerfläckar och enstaka småfläckar, kraftigt fläckig s. 13-14 i första pagineringsföljden och s. 162 i andra. Svag fuktrand i övre hörn, kraftigare s. 85 i första följden. Titelbladet taget från ett annat exemplar och insatt, något skuret nedtill. Halvpergamentband från slutet av 1800-talet, guldornerad rygg med röd titeletikett, marmorerade pärmpapper och röda snitt. Ur Ericsbergs bibliotek. Bibl. danica III, sp. 1235. Ej i Thesaurus. Warmholtz 5055, not. Warmholtz har inte sett denna bok utan känner den bara ur en bokförteckning. Den är ett angrepp på den svenska anklagelseakten mot Jörgen Krabbe, "Een sanfärdigh och uthförligh deduction...". Jörgen Krabbe (1633-78) var en av de rikaste danska adelsmännen i Skåne vid tiden efter det svenska erövrandet. Han ägde både Krageholms slott, Tosterup och Ingelstrup. Han svor svenska kungen trohet och representerade t.o.m. skånska adeln vid riksdagen 1668 tillsammans med Knud Thott. Efter det danska anfallet 1676 var den gamla danska adelns inställning oklar, många var missnöjda med det svenska styret. Krabbe själv besökte under kriget Kristian V i hans läger, men så sent som i september 1677 slöt han i alla fall upp vid Karl XI:s sida. Frisläppta svenska fångar anklagade honom dock för samröre med snapphanar och efter en mycket summarisk rättegång dömdes han på svaga bevis till döden och halshöggs den 16 januari 1678 i Malmö. Många menade att svenska staten, och framförallt vicegeneralguvernören i Malmö Jörgen Sperling, i själva verket bara ville komma åt hans ägodelar och gods

        The True Intellectual System of the Universe?

      London: Printed for Richard Royston, 1678 First edition. Contemporary calf, rebacked to style, though gilt stamping is a little crude, edges sprinkled red. . Folio. Former owner's ink inscription on front free endpaper, dated 1752. A very good, clean copy. This is the main work of Ralph Cudworth (1617-1688), a leader of the group known as the "Cambridge Platonists." It is an answer to Hobbes' Leviathan. Cudworth contrasts the tenets of the materialists (Democritus, Lucretius) with the idealism of Plato and Aristotle. Lengthy developments aim at refuting paganism and atheism "with all the reasons that his reading could supply."

        Decameron Physiologicum: Or, Ten Dialogues of Natural Philosophy. To which is added The Proportion of a Straight Line to half the Arc of a Quadrant. By the same Author.

      London, Printed by J.C. for W. Crook, 1678. 8vo. Bound in a contemporary full calf binding with gilt spine. Hinges worn and capitals quite worn, with lack of ab. 1 cm of upper capital. Inner hinges cracked, so cords are showing, cords and stichings are very strong, so the binding is still very tight, and nothing is loose.

A bit of overall minor brownspotting and soiling, but internally overall a nice and well preserved copy. (6), 136, (7, advertisements) pp. + 1 folded engraved plate. Pp. 133-136 consistes of "The Proportion of a Straight Line to half the Arc of a Quadrant" (which the engraved plate accompanies) and contains, three large engraved illustrations of lines and arcs.. The very rare first edition of Hobbes' last work, which constitutes the final definition of his great mechanistic system of natural philosophy as well as the final blow in the famous Wallis-Hobbes feud. "Hobbes last work of all, published when he was over ninety, "was a new set of dialogues on physical questions, in the fashion of the earlier ones, but now with a stroke added at Wallis's doctrine of gravitation in the "De Motu". And a demonstration of the equality of a straight line to the arc of the circle was, of course, thrown in at the end, to show him true as ever to the desperate purpose that had maintained the long quarter of a century of strife." (C.G. Robertson)" (Macdonald and Hargreaves).The dispute between John Wallis and Thomas Hobbes, which lasted more than 25 years and became one of the most significant ones within the field of algebra and geometry, was sparked by Thomas Hobbes' "De corpore", in which Hobbes subordinates mathematics to geometry and geometry to kinematics and furthermore claimed to prove the squaring of the circle. The feud could be considered one between an amateur and a professional, but the amateur was not just any amateur, it was one of the most brilliant minds of the 17th century, a philosopher whose social and political philosophy, developed upon the ideas of Euclid's classical geometry and his idea of proofs and theorems, have dominated this field ever since, namely Thomas Hobbes. And the mathematician was not just a professional mathematician, he was one of the greatest of the 17th century, ranking second only to Newton, namely John Wallis. After his "De Corpore", Hobbes retracted the proof for the squaring of the circle, but he did not give up trying to prove it. In fact, he was so convinced that he would be able to construe such a proof that he maintained it throughout the rest of his life and never gave up. As a physicist and mathematician, Hobbes was a "classical" thinker, and he was fully convinced of the truth of Greek philosophy and geometry. Wallis, on the other hand, was a "modern" thinker, who greatly influenced modern mathematics. The battle between the two came to be one of the longest, most amusing, most sarcastic, and most fruitful debates ever between two brilliant minds, and although one must still conclude that Hobbes was wrong, it is often said that this dispute in effect led to the discovery of the calculus. As opposed to Wallis, Hobbes was not a professional mathematician, and he was so blindly convinced with classical geometry that he did not see the capabilities of algebra, and he refused to see that Wallis was the true winner of the mathematical battles; in fact, he accused Wallis' methods of being ignorant and mad. Wallis, on the other hand wrote things like "Mr. Hobbes loves to call that chalk which others call cheese". And so the ongoing battle continued. Hobbes continued to be unaware of the fact that his method of squaring the circle was wrong, and he even used it and his solutions on other geometrical problems, contributing to further attacks from Wallis. Only in 1672 did Wallis give up - but Hobbes did not. His final say in the matter was published in 1678, at the age of 90, with his important final work, his "Decameron Physiologicum", which constitutes a new set of 10 dialogues about natural science in which he focuses on Wallis' famous book "De Motu", which had appeared in 1669, and which dealt with gravitation and centers of gravity. The work contained also at the end his final demonstration of the equality of a straight line to the arc of a circle. Hobbes died the following year, in 1679, and the present work thus constitutes the last thing that we have from him. It is this matter which obviously occupied his final professional thoughts, as it had done for some 25 years. In this amazing work by the 90 year old brilliant thinker, we find an interesting mixture of the old and the new. His account of matter and motion is clearly in the spirit of Descartes and the contemporary mechanical philosophers, but he never loses sight of Aristotelian doctrines and keeps true to Greek thought and physics. With his treatment of gravitation, he here fires off his final shot against Wallis, and with his demonstration of the equality of a straight line to the arc of a circle at the end of the work, one of the strangest and most interesting intellectual debates was laid to rest.

Fint exemplar av den första franska utgåvan av "Lapponia". Översättningen är utförd av Augustin Lubin efter det latinska originalet, och den är dedicerad till Carl Bonde, svenskt sändebud i Paris. Bygdén hänvisar till Barbier som påstår att de fem första kapitlena skall vara översatta av P. Richelet. Från Warmholtz bibliotek har den via Gjörwell gått till vinhandlaren Daniel Georg Nescher, som enligt Bring (C. G.

As mentioned by Frank Adams in 'The Birth and Development of the Geological Sciences', (1938), Athanasius Kircher was a member of the society of Jesus and wrote a number of great volumes about many subjects, he is best known for this work, which first appeared in 1664. In it he considers all that is within the earth, including rivers and mineral waters, presenting a theory which was widely accepted during the later middle ages, in the preface to the volume Kircher outlines how he gathered the material for it, writing that he was passing through Sciliy and the Lipari Islands in 1636 when the great Calabrian earthquake destroyed large parts of this area. The enormity of the power of the forces of nature and its devastating results had a major effect upon him, which was strengthened by his visit to Vesuvius and its surrounding areas causing him to want to delve into the mysteries of the earth and its forces.

Anno 1665. zugetragen/ Und wie er aus des Teuffels Gewalt errettet worden. - Die Abhandlung des Muskauer Diakons Martinus Francisci (1647-1698) erschien erstmals 1677 (mit nur 68 S.), hier vorliegend die dritte und umfangreichste Ausgabe. - Der aus Vlissingen (Niederlande) stammende Tyllus Weiß war Söldner auf der französischen Seite im Holländischen Krieg und legte gemeinsamen mit 8 weiteren Söldnern eine "Teufelspakt" ab, der ihn vor den Gefahren des Krieges schützen und gleichzeitig großen Rum einbringen sollte. Bei der Rückkehr seines Dienstherren nach Schlesien setzte er sich von der Truppe ab. Der Pakt mit dem Teufel war auf 7 Jahre und 17 Tage angelegt und sollte zu Mitternacht des 5. Dezember 1677 auslaufen, was Weiß ein unangenehmes Zusammentreffen mit dem Teufel einbringen würde. Von Panik und schweren Zukunftsängsten ob der anstehenden Höllenfahrt getrieben, suchte er einen Pfarrer, der ihn zu taufen bereit wäre (Weiß stammte aus der Sekte der Manichäer) und damit vor dem Teufel retten könne. Die Suche blieb zuerst erfolglos, auch sein Geständnis vielfacher Morde im Auftrage Satans brachte ihm nur einige Exorzismen ein. Schließlich fand sich der Muskauer Diakon Francisci, der den Tyllus zum Christen Andreas machte, ihm einen Platz in der lutherischen Gemeinschaft zuwies und ihm damit vor der Hölle bewahrte. Kurz danach verlieren sich allerdings die Spuren des Teufelsbündners, er soll nach Dresden gezogen sein, aber sein weiterer Aufenthalt ist nicht ganz gewiss. - Vgl. dazu ausführlich: Moeller, Katrin: Andreas Weiss und das "Wunder von Muskau".

Mot slutet av året drog de allierade ned antalet trupper på Rügen, vilket Königsmarck utnyttjade till att den 8 januari 1678 anfalla med 3500 man. Den danske befälhavaren Rumohr blev i inledningsskedet dödligt sårad och utan befäl gav sig försvararna. Det kallas ibland slaget vid Warksow. Den svenska framgången blev dock kortvarig och Königsmarck fann sig snart belägrad i Stralsund
