Francesco Redi (1626 - 1697) was an Italian physician, naturalist, and poet born in Arezzo. He was court physician to Ferdinando II de' Medici, Grand Duke of Tuscany and his successor, Cosimo III. His researches gained him membership of the Accademia dei Lincei. He was well known in his day for a series of experiments on the generation of insects, working in particular with maggots. He also discovered how vipers reproduced and how to extract their venom to study its effect on the body. The illustrations to No.1 include armadillo, mermaid, iguana, plants, exotic fruit and nuts of various kinds. No.4. is on the albatross, one of the earliest monographs on a single bird. One plate shows a portrait of the whole bird, the others show parts of its anatomy. No. 5. First publishedin Italian in 1679, describes the artificial eye designed and produced by the author. Verle made the anatomical model in Venice with the help of Antonio Molinetti, who was Professor of Anatomy at the University of Padua. Surviving examples are carved from ivory, but Verle also planned to make gold versions. The 7 plates show images of the anatomy of the eye.

        The Works of the Famous Nicholas Machiavel, Citizen and Secretary of Florence. Written originally in Italian, and from thence newly and faithfully translated into English.

      London: Printed for John Starkey, Charles Harper, and John Amery, 1680. Second edition in English of the works of Machiavelli, an important work of political science which includes The Prince. Folio, bound in full calf, elaborate gilt titles and tooling to the spine, front and rear panels, marbled endpapers. Includes: The History of Florence; The Prince; The Discourses of Nicholas Machiavel, Upon the First Decade of Titus Livius; and The Art of War (this last work is incomplete in this copy). Each with a separate dated title page but pagination and register are continuous. Also includes "Nicholas Machiavel's letter to Zanobius Buondelmontius", which is not in fact by Machiavelli but by Henry Neville. Translation attributed to Henry Neville. Wing M128. In very good condition. Although it is relatively short, Niccolo Machiavelli's The Prince is the most remembered of his works and the one most responsible for bringing the word "Machiavellian" into usage as a pejorative. Although it was written as if it were a traditional work in the mirrors for princes style, it is generally agreed that it was especially innovative and is often considered to be one of the first works of modern philosophy, especially modern political philosophy, in which the effective truth is taken to be more important than any abstract ideal.

Januar 1747 ebenda) war ein deutscher Schriftsteller und Dichter der frühen deutschen AUFKLÄRUNG. - Sein Hauptwerk ist die naturlyrische Gedichtsammlung IRDISCHES VERGNÜGEN IN GOTT, in der die Natur in ihrer Schönheit und Nützlichkeit als Mittler zwischen Mensch und Gott reflektiert wird. - 1721 begann Brockes mit der Herausgabe des Irdischen Vergnügens in Gott, bestehend in Physicalisch- und Moralischen Gedichten, das bis 1748 in neun Bänden erschien und das Ende einer barocken Weltsicht, die das 17. Jahrhundert geprägt hatte, anzukündigen scheint. Die Huldigung der Natur und der Schöpfung stand zwar immer noch im Mittelpunkt der Dichtung, wurde bei Brockes aber nunmehr um die präzise und analytische Betrachtung derselben ergänzt. - Der Ton des Irdischen Vergnügens traf zwar durchaus auf breite Zustimmung und fand Nachahmer, wurde aber zum Beispiel von Johann Jakob BREITINGER und Johann Christoph GOTTSCHED bereits kritisiert und im Zuge der literarischen AUFKLÄRUNG dann zunehmend als dürftig und nichtssagend angesehen zwei Jahrzehnte nach dem Tod des Autors wusste man dieser Dichtung nichts mehr abzugewinnen. --- Aus dem INHALT u.a.: ....im Frühlinge / ..

Description: Source unknown, to be determined.Artists and Engravers: Made by 'Nicolaes Visscher' after an anonymous artist. For nearly a century the members of the Visscher family were important art dealers and map publishers in Amsterdam. The founder of the business, C. J. Visscher, had premises near to those of Pieter van den Keere and Jodocus Hondius whose pupil he may have been. From about 1620 he designed a number of individual maps, including one of the British Isles, but his first atlas consisted of maps printed from plates bought from van den Keere and issued as they stood with some additions of his own, including historical scenes of battles and sieges for which he had a high reputation. Some maps bear the latinized form of the family name: Piscator. After Visscher's death his son and grandson, both of the same name, issued a considerable number of atlases, constantly revised and brought up to date but most of them lacking an index and with varying contents. The widow of Nicholaes Visscher II carried on the business until it finally passed into the hands of Pieter Schenk. Condition: Good, given age. Paper separation top and bottom middle fold; backed.

      London: Walter Davis Book-binder, 1680 A very good copy of the 1st edition of Robert Filmer's important political work on government. Robert Filmer (c1588-1653) was a political theorist and is best known for Patriarcha which was probably begun in 1620, but was not published until after his death. His thesis on the right of kings, initially well-regarded, was taken apart by John Locke and came in for considerable criticism. It is now seen as an important work, which set the framework for debate on forms of government. This copy has been newly rebound in half leather with marbled boards and with title label to spine. New endpapers have been added and the frontispiece, which was missing, added in facsimile. Contents: title page; copy of a letter by Peter Heylyn 5pp; contents list 5pp; errata 1p; text pp 1-141 Finis.

        Amsterdam, Dam, demonstratie brandspruit Jan van der Heijden - ca. 1680.

      DEMONSTRATIE VAN DE BRANDSPRUIT OP DE DAM TE AMSTERDAMEts vervaardigd rond 1680 door Jan van Vianen (ca. 1660 ? na 1726) naar het ontwerp van Jan van der Heijden (1637 ? 1712). Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 47,5 x 56,5 cm.Eeuwenlang was het blussen van branden een kwestie van lange rijen mensen, die emmers water aan elkaar doorgaven. Pas toen het stadhuis van Amsterdam op 7 juli 1652 afbrandde, werd er een nieuw tijdperk ingeluid. De stad schafte kort daarop 58 handbrandspuiten aan. De toen 15-jarige jongeman Jan Goriszoon van der Heijden was getuige van de brand. Het gevolg van de aanwezigheid van Jan van der Heijden werd pas later merkbaar, maar klonk door tot in de geschiedenisboeken.Een eerste omwenteling bracht Van der Heijden te weeg door in november 1668 het stadsbestuur voor te stellen om door de hele stad openbare straatverlichting aan te brengen. Hij deed zijn voorstel ?om bij duystere nachten de gehele stad met lichten te voorzien, om te verhoeden het verongelucken van veele menschen, die bij duysternis in ?t water vallen ende versmoren ... om huysbraken te ontdecken ende moetwille te weren, ende dan oock om bij brant allome licht bij de hand te hebben?. De stad plaatste vervolgens 2500 door Van der Heijden ontworpen straatlantaarns die dagelijks door een organisatie van lantaarnopstekers ontstoken en gedoofd werden.Belangrijker nog was Van der Heijdens verbetering van de brandweerpomp in 1672. Aan de toen in gebruik zijnde tobbe met spuitmond werden een ?zuigpomp? en lederen brandslangen toegevoegd. Het benodigde water kon daarmee direct uit de gracht opgezogen worden (als filter tegen het vuil diende een gevlochten mandje), terwijl de brandslangen de spuitgasten in staat stelden het vuur gericht te bestrijden.Al kort na de invoering van deze verbeteringen werden de zuigpomp en de brandspuit gecombineerd tot een enkel apparaat. De dubbele pompwerking had een ?dood? moment tot gevolg, halverwege de slag. Om dit op te vangen werd al snel een extra drukvat aangebracht. Met de daarin opgebouwde druk werd de waterstraal gevoed tijdens het dode moment van de pomp, waardoor de spuit een constante waterstraal produceerde. Op deze vinding verkreeg Van der Heijden in 1677 patent.De Amsterdamse burgemeesters waren onder de indruk en in elk van de zestig stadswijken werd een nieuwe spuit opgesteld. Deze werden bediend door aangewezen gildenbroeders en vrijwilligers uit de buurt. Elke spuit kreeg een vast aantal functionarissen en ??n ? twee keer per jaar werd er verplicht geoefend onder toezicht van de generaal-brandmeester. De eerste functionaris met die titel was Jan van der Heijden zelf.De spuit, die aanvankelijk naar de brand werd gedragen, werd later voorzien van wielen.Van der Heijden was naast uitvinder ook zeer verdienstelijk schilder en tekenaar. Als schilder is hij vooral beroemd geworden om zijn fraaie stadsgezichten met een ongekend waarheidsgetrouwe topografie. Zijn tekentalenten werden vooral ook gebruikt voor de instructies en reclameplaten voor de brandspuiten. Bovengenoemde prent is daarvan een schitterend. Zijn werk is te zien in het Rijksmuseum, het Louvre en in andere grote musea.Prijs: ?2.650,-.

Première édition espagnole de ce fameux livre d'emblèmes par le militaire, diplomate et homme d'Etat espagnol Juan de Borja y Castro (1533-1606), fils de Saint François de Borgia. Parue en latin en 1581, l'édition originale avait vu le jour à Prague, où l'auteur était ambassadeur d'Espagne. L'ouvrage est richement illustré de 220 planches d'emblèmes gravées, en regard desquelles figurent des notices où sont explicitées les implications morales et philosophiques des emblèmes, dans une langue aux accents poétiques. Le frontispice et les emblèmes furent gravés par Richard Collin (1626-1687), graveur du roi Charles II d'Espagne à Bruxelles. "Juan de Borja fue el primero en España en publicar un libro de Empresas, cuando la ingeniosidad todavía no era el objetivo principal de la literatura. Él está en los inicios de un género -anteriormente muy difundido en Italia- que durante un siglo en España va a tener continuadores" (Bravo-Villasante) Brunissure généralisée du papier, plusieurs feuillets réparés sans manque. Praz, 282. Palau, 33113: "Bella impresión en gran papel". A propos de R. Collin, voir Benézit, I, 986. Sur Borja, cf. Carmen Bravo-Villasante "La literatura emblematica, las Empresas Morales de Juan de Borja". [Attributes: First Edition]

Excellent detail throughout and a nice title carouche.; -vita of the artist: Giacomo Cantelli da Vignola (1643 - 1695) was an important Italian cartographer and engraver Cantelli was born in Montorsello, near Vignola Italy to a prominent local family. After studying literature at the University of Bologna, Cantelli took a position as secretary to the Marquis Obizzi de Ferrara. Eventually Cantelli relocated to Venice where developed an interest in cartography. He later traveled to Paris in the company of the French ambassador where became acquainted with the French cartographer Guillaume Sanson, as well as his contemporaries Jacques-Andre Duval and Michel-Antoin Baudrand. It was most likely the influence of these innovative French cartographers that inspired Cantelli's careful and meticulous approach, in which he based his cartography not just on earlier maps, but also very much in the French style upon accounts written by travelers and merchants regarding actual travel to foreign lands. Back in Italy, Cantelli took service Count Rinieri Marescotti, with whom he traveled extensively throughout Italy, becoming in the process acquainted with the Italian publisher Giovanni Giacomo de Rossi. It is with Rossi that Cantelli began officially publishing his maps. The earliest maps to bear the Cantelli-Rossi imprint date to 1672 and detail the Holy Land, Persia, and the Ottoman Empire. Around 1680 the duo also began to publish the Mercurio Geografico, a large format atlas illustrating all parts of the world in a splendid Italian baroque detail defined by elaborate finely engraved cartouche work, high quality paper, and bold Roman lettering, and dark rich inks. Some have compared his style go that of Giovanni Antonio Magini, another Italian cartographer of the previous generation. Cantelli da Vignola in fact pioneered the Italian style of fine bold engraving that would eventually be embraced and expanded upon by Vincenzo Coronelli. His work drew the attention of Pope Innocent XI and Reggio Francesco II d'Este, the Duke of Modena, both of whom offered him a position as court geographer. Cantelli chose to work with the Due of Modena, in the service of whom he produced numerous maps and well as two large globes.
