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.

Old, large, beatiful ex-libarry book-plate (South Library, 1860) pasted into inside of front board, weapon of same library beautifully blindstamped to top of title-page. 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Den danske befälhavaren Rumohr blev i inledningsskedet dödligt sårad och utan befäl gav sig försvararna. Det kallas ibland slaget vid Warksow.

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 i … [Click Below for Full Description]

This is one of the most important accounts of travels in the Levant, and the first description of Athens which was systematic, detailed, and trustworthy. as Laborde says, "la publication du voyage de Spon fut un evenement litteraire". Chateaubriand praised the work: "tout le monde connait le merite de cet ouvrage, ou l’art et l’antiquite sont traites avec une critique jusqu’alors ignoree". Spon and Wheler met in Italy in 1675; they travelled together with Francis Vernon to Zakynthos, where the two groups separated. Spon and Wheler continued by sea to Constantinople, and Vernon travelled overland. The great merit of Spon’s work is due to its combination of a careful and knowledgeable interest in classical antiquity with an accurate observation of men, manners and topography in Modern Greece. The whole of volume II is devoted to Greece and includes a glossary of modern Greek … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hobbes Thomas
London: J.C. for W. Crook, 1678. The First Edition of Hobbes' final work. With the folding plate, which is frequently lacking and a figure within the text. 8vo, in full calf of proper period style, the binding with raised bands ruled in blind and a black morocco label lettered and with decorate ruled frame in gilt viii, 136, (7) (1) pp. A very fine and handsome copy, complete with the license leaf, folding plate and all ads, rarely found such. The text very clean and fresh. VERY RARE AND HOBBES' FINAL WORK, PRODUCED AT AGE 90. Hobbes considered himself to be primarily a scientist and philosopher and only consequently a theorist of civil and ecclesiastical authority. His reputation, however, both in his own day and ours, is inextricably linked to his progressive theories in civil and church polity, despite more practical accomplishments in optical theory. DECAMERON PHYSIOLOGICUM was the final form of his mechanistic system of natural philosophy and the final word in the Wallis-Hobbes feud. "Hobbes last work of all 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)" On Page 116 Hobbes references Kepler, with whom he is in agreement, in a statement giving the age of the Earth. There are discussi … [Click Below for Full Description]

L'opera, divisa in due parti, nella prima moraleggia sulla vita del savio e dell'uomo di lettere, nella seconda critica e condanna i più comuni difetti dei letterati: ladroneccio, lascivia, maldicenza, alterezza, avarizia, oscurità. Quest'opera, stampata per la prima volta a Roma dal Corbelletti nel 1645 ebbe un'immediato e strepitoso successo tanto da esaurire le otto edizioni stampate in quello stesso anno. Gamba 1780.

The "Remarques." (30) pp. at end, was written by Spinoza himself for this French edition."Spinoza's thought, a fusion of Cartesian rationalism and Hebraic tradition in which he grew up, is a solitary but crystal-clear exposition of the theory of natural right. He defends with eloquence the liberty of thought and speech in speculative matters, and the Tractatus contains the first clear statement of the independence of each other of philosophy and religion, in that speculation and precepts of conduct cannot collide. Spinoza, to whom any controversy was abhorrent, did not publish the Tractatus undtil 1670, and then anonymously with a bogus imprint."

Bearbeitet von Bernhard Verzascha (Hirsch / Hübotter V, 736f), dem ein Karmen in Lateinisch und Griechisch gewidmet ist. "Matthiolus, ein italienischer Arzt und Gelehrter von Rang, ganz hervorragender Humanist, ging in seinen Kräuterbüchern - entsprechend der Gedankenwelt der Renaissance - wieder auf das klassische Wissen, besonders auf Dioscorides zurück. Seine Bücher sprachen insbesondere die Gelehrtenwelt an. Meist schrieb er in italienischer Sprache, was die Übersetzungen erleichterte ... Er bemühte sich vor allem um eine wissenschaftliche Renaissance der alten Klassiker. Durch seine Arbeiten wurden alle früheren Werke für die Gelehrten überflüssig und als überlebt beiseite gelegt. Sein bekanntestes Werk ist die große Prachtausgabe 1568 bei Valgrisius in Venedig: "Commentarii in sex libros Pedacii Dioscoridis" ... Sein schönstes Werk zeigt blattgroße Abbildungen, die besonders beim Publikum gut ankamen" (Heilmann). Einband restauriert; Titelblatt, 1 Blatt der Widmungsvorrede und das Karmen auf Bernhard Verzascha Papierverlust in den Rändern ergänzt; diese Seiten und Textteile in Faksimile auf gelblichem Papier: Kupfertitel, Porträt Bernhard Verzascha, Widmungsvorrede 1 … [Click Below for Full Description]
