ECOLE PARFAITE DES OFFICIERS E BOUCHE
Pierre Ribou, 1680. in-12, pp. (8), 480, (24) di indici, leg. coeva in vitello, titolo e fregi in oro al dorso. Con 39 silografie a piena pagina che illustrano vari tagli di carne e modi di presentare i frutti. Raccolta enciclopedica importante ed assai rara, apparsa per la prima volta nel 1662, sempre in forma anonima; per la prima volta riunisce in una sola opera i 6 mestieri associati ad una grande cucina. Proprio a questa caratteristica si deve il successo dell'opera, sebbene i sei trattati siano per lo più copiati da opere precedenti; le edizioni secentesche sono di grande rarità.Tra le molte curiosità v'è anche un capitolo interamente dedicato all'arte di disporre e piegare i tovaglioli da tavola per conferire loro forme artistiche e curiose. Bell'esemplare, con alone nella prima parte ed alcune fioriture (minuscolo strappo all'angolo inf. della carta Ff).

ZAYAS Y SOTOMAYOR, Maria de
Paris: G. Quinet, 1680. First Complete Edition in French. 16mo, pp. [4], 323; [2], 336; [1], 297; [1] 283; [1] 226. Printed with woodcut initials and head pieces. Bound in contemporary calf, with modern rebacking, blank marginal tears to three leaves in volume 1 (without any loss of text]. Includes the stamp of the Netherby Library on the title pages, with the ownership signature of one of the baronets Graham of Netherby, Cumberland. Two volumes have the ownership signatures of "Su Fletchers Booke" and the same hand has copied two speeches from the tragedy Roland by Philippe Quinault (1635-1688). This is the first complete edition in French (this was preceeded by a partial edition of six novels, translated by Antoine de Methel and published in 1656 (Palau 379922). Then in 1651 and 1661, French novelist and playright Paul Scarron (1610-1660) borrowed the theme of three of the novels in his Roman Comique and his Nouvelles tragi-comiques. This first complete translation is quite rare, Northwestern and a UC Santa Barbara have just volumes 1 & 2, while the only complete set seems to be at the Library of Congress. Palau 379924; Cioranescu 65450. Wilson notes: The life of Maria de Zayas (1590-1669) is wrapped in mystery. Her father was a Captain in the infantry and a member of the military order of Santiago, thus she belonged to a distinguished Spanish family ... We do know that she played an active part in the cultural life of Madrid, participating in literary academies and gatherings, writing encomiastic poems for her friends, and receiving high praise from such luminaries as L … [Click Below for Full Description]

Fioravanti Leonardo
In Venetia, appresso Giacomo Zattoni, 1680. In 16°, cart. rustico coevo, tit. calligrafato al dorso, pp. 342 [es. mutilo dell pp. 343-348 e dell'occhietto]-(16nn di tavole di Indice). Anche questa ediz. del 1680 è introdotta da un interessante ragionamento dell'Autore che invita i lettori a non meravigliarsi di come, nel suo libro, vengano trattate la medicina e la chirurgia, in quanto egli non seguirà né Ippocrate né Galeno né Avicenna ma solamente il suo giudizio e la sua esperienza. Fioravanti cerca di scoprire la verità per "saper curare le infermità degli uomini e delle donne del Mondo". Secondo lui i segreti riportati sono razionali ed inoltre "..in questo volume non si disputano come in altri cose incerte nè teoriche false, ma solamente si mostra un bellissimo ordine di medicare". L'opera è divisa in IV libri con distinti argomenti: nel primo si insegna a conoscere "..diversi segni delle cose naturali", nel secondo "..si mostra il modo di fare varij e diversi medicamenti utilissimi.." nel terzo "..dell'Alchimia dell'huomo e dell'alchimia minerale...", nel quarto "..belli discorsi filosofici e medicinali..". Interessante il capitolo sedicesimo del primo libro dove, affrontando temi filosofici, Fioravanti afferma che la medicina viene considerata un dono di Dio per poter curare la generazione umana, sia adoperando la chirurgia, sia i medicamenti. Le pp. 343-348 sono in questo es. riprodotte in digitale su carta antica. Discreta copia, con qualche fascicolo allentato e una macchia di inchiostro al taglio superiore del volume che va ad interessare parzialmente anche il m … [Click Below for Full Description]

Robert Filmer
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.

DANCKERTS, J.
Amsterdam, c. 1680. Oblong small folio (350 x 190mm). Engraved title within a garland of flowers arranged on a pillar, and 9 engraved plates of bouquets of flowers, each bouquet displayed in an ornamental glass vase, very fine engravings. Contemporary mottled calf, gilt borders, rebacked to style. Not in Nissen or any of the obvious bibliographies. Dunthorne 317 cites this work under the author Vauquer.Dr. Sam Segal believes this work by Justus Danckerts is the first edition and predates the edition by Vauquer. However both are rare and no copy has appeared at auction. J. Danckerts was a member of the famous Danckerts family of Amsterdam, one of the best known print and map sellers in 17th century Amsterdam. 'The grandfather, father, and sons were all highly skilled and excellent artistic draftsman and engravers' (Koeman II, p. 88). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Heijden, Jan van der (1637 - 1712)
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 opgezog … [Click Below for Full Description]

BORELLI GIOVANNI ALFONSO.
Roma, Angelo Bernabò, 1680-1681. Due volumi in-4°; 6 cc., 376 pp., 6 cc. e 14 tavv. - 2 cc., 520 pp. e 4 tavv. ripiegate; legatura coeva in tutta pergamena, titolo manoscritto al dorso. Esemplare genuino con qualche lieve brunitura e macchia marginale. Prima edizione. Famoso trattato che applica per la prima volta agli animali i principi della meccanica di Galileo. La prima parte presenta l'analisi della struttura scheletrica come sistema di leve (vol. I, tavv. I-X), del moto nei vari mezzi ambientali (corsa, nuoto, volo) e dei meccanismi della contrazione muscolare. Il Borelli si discosta dal meccanicismo di Cartesio, attribuendo la contrazione muscolare ad una combinazione chimica istantanea tra fluido nervoso e sangue. Parlando del volo, l'autore fornisce la prima dimostrazione dell'impossibilità del volo muscolare umano; analizzando poi i movimenti dei pesci, delinea i primi progetti di battello sottomarino (vol. I, tav. XIV). Nella seconda parte Borelli considera il sistema nervoso come un reticolo di canali tubiformi contenenti un fluido inerte, le cui ondulazioni trasmettono gli stimoli in senso centripeto e centrifugo. La regina Cristina di Svezia e l'Ordine degli Scolopi agevolarono la concessione dell'imprimatur, assai problematica dato il carattere palesemente galileiano dell'opera. "After Descartes, Borelli was the principal founder of the iatrophysical school, one of the two opposing seventeenth-century medical philosophies that grew out of an increasing concern with the function as well as the structure of human anatomy. Inspired by Harvey's mathematical demon … [Click Below for Full Description]
