Groenveldt (Groenevelt), Joannes (Greenfeld, John)
Londoni, Typis Joannis Bringhurst, 1684, 12°, (16), 137 pp., 1 p. Errata, 1 p., 6 gfefalt. Kupfertaf., Ledereinband d.Zt.; trotz des erneuerten Rücken ein feines und frisches Exemplar. Rare first Edition of this important book on lithotomy! Groenvelt, Joannes (bap. 1648, d. 1715/16), physician and surgeon, was baptized on 14 May 1648 in the Reformed church of Deventer in the Dutch province of Overijssel; he was the only surviving son of Frans Groenevelt and Goedekin ter Klocken. In mid-January 1666 he matriculated into the well-regarded local 'Illustre School'; in September 1667 he matriculated in medicine at the University of Leiden. Apparently because of the epidemic that occurred in Leiden at the end of the summer of 1669, which forced the university to close for a time, Groenevelt migrated to Utrecht to complete his medical studies, defending his thesis, 'De calculo vesicae', and taking his degree, on 18 March 1670. Perhaps after a visit to France, Groenevelt moved to Amsterdam, where he joined the Collegium Medicum and married Cristina de Ruijter (c.1650-1713) on 4 March 1672. He also entered into a joint practice with the Amsterdam city surgeon Henricus Velthuys, who had an especially good reputation for surgically removing bladder stones. When Velthuys died in May 1674 he left his instruments to Groenevelt, and urged him to take up surgical practice himself. Groenevelt may have served as physician to the newly liberated Dutch garrison at Grave in October 1674. Then, late in the year, or early in 1675, he and his wife arrived in London. On 5 May 1675 their first child … [Click Below for Full Description]

SOLORZANO, Father Manuel de
Agaña (Mariana Islands) 1684 - Folio, 4 pp., manuscript in ink on paper, about 1500 words, written in a neat hand; in fine condition preserved in a bookform case by Sangorski and Sutcliffe. An exceptionally interesting manuscript, in which Father Solorzano, a Jesuit missionary in the Mariana Islands, gives news of the work accomplished by the Mariana Islands Mission, and discusses plans for the missionaries to explore and evangelise the southern continent. The plan is clearly reminiscent of Quiros' memorials about seventy years earlier.In the 1660s Spanish Jesuit missionaries set out to colonise the Mariana Islands, which until then had been called the Ladrones - named thus by Magellan for the thievery of the native inhabitants. Father Solorzano was one of the earliest casualties in what became a vicious struggle between the Spanish settlers and the native peoples of the islands: three months after the date of this letter he was killed in a skirmish and became one of the first martyrs.'Meanwhile, Duchess Maria d'Aveiro, who had already more or less adopted the mission, saw to it that the necessary flow of ducats was continued from Madrid to the Marianas. She was repaid with abundant letters full of detailed information on the Church's progress in those regions. Her archives, which must have been a historian's goldmine, contained many manuscripts dealing with ecclesiastical and colonial affairs. In 1923, however, they were sold to Maggs Brothers and subsequently dispersed?' (Francis X. Hezel).This is one of that small series of letters written by Solorzano to the mission's p … [Click Below for Full Description]

BUONANNI, Filippo.
1684. 2 parties en un volume in-4 de un front. gr., 8 ff.n.ch., 270 pp.ch., 5 ff.n.ch. et 7 pl. pour la première partie; un front. gr., 3 titres gr. et 134 pl. ; veau estampé à froid, dos orné de fleurons dorés, liens d'étoffe (Reliure de l'époque). Nissen, ZBI, 754; Cobres, 418, 6; Eales, 991. Première édition latine. Elève de Kircher et son successeur au Collegio Romano, Buonanni défendait la théorie aristotélicienne de la génération spontanée des mollusques. La publication de cet ouvrage relança la controverse qui s'était élevée entre Kircher et Redi à ce sujet, quelques années auparavant. Dans la première partie, Buonanni étudie les coquillages vivants et fossiles dans leur ensemble, leur utilisation et les collections dans les musées; dans la deuxième partie, il les décrit séparément, par familles, avec des remarques sur leurs couleurs, leurs noms et leurs lieux de croissance. Les superbes planches représentent plus de 500 coquillages différents, soit une centaine de coquillages de plus que dans l'édition italienne de 1681. Très bel exemplaire dans sa première reliure estampée. Français

Philipp van Limborch]
Henricum Wetstenium, Amsterdam 1684 - Quarum longe major pars scripta est à Jac. Arminio, Joan. Uytenbogardo, Conr. Vorstio [.] Pref. a Philippo à Limborch. Editio secunda. Mit gest. Titelvignette. 6 Blatt, 978 S., 5 Blatt Index. Pergamentband der Zeit. Index etwas gebräunt. Sonst sehr gut erhalten. Philipp van Limborch (1633-1712) war Theologe und Professor des Remonstrantischen Seminars an der Universität von Amsterdam. Limborch führte nach seinem Verständnis das Vermächtnis des Erasmus von Rotterdam, Arminius, Vossius, Grotius und Simon Episcopius fort, das er besonders in Toleranz und unabhängiger Wahrheitssuche verwirklicht sah. Als erster arminianischer Theologe verfasste er eine Dogmatik, die auf die Praxis der christlichen Frömmigkeit gerichtet war und die Ethik beinhaltete. Er führte die Unterscheidung in fundamentale und nicht fundamentale Glaubenslehren ein, wobei er u. a. die Trinität, die Christologie und die Prädestination unter die nicht fundamentalen Lehren rechnete. Damit versuchte er, eine vermittelnde Theologie zu entwickeln, die sich auf notwendige Dogmen beschränkte, weswegen er in den Verdacht des Sozinianismus geriet. Limborch war ein Gegner Spinozas, der Deisten und Agnostiker. Er korrespondierte mit vielen Gelehrten seiner Zeit, unter ihnen Jean Leclerc, Gilbert Burnet (1643?1715), Edward Stillingfleet (1635?1699), John Tillotson (1630?1694), Ralph Cudworth und Henry More. Mit John Locke verband ihn eine langjährige Freundschaft.

De Luca Carlo Antonio
sumpt. Petri Borde, Joannis & Petri Arnaud, 1684. In-folio (350x220mm), pp. (12), 164, (15) di indice bicolonne, legatura coeva p. pergamena con titolo calligrafato in antico su dorso a 4 nervi. Titolo inciso al taglio di piede. Frontespizio in rosso e in nero con impresa tipografica con la Fortuna, Ercole e Minerva entro cornice con motto su nastro "Semina fortunae geminat cum tempore virtus". Testo bicolonne. Ex-libris manoscritto antico ("Lud.[ovi]ci Perrachini"). Altro ex-libris novecentesco. Fioriture e bruniture sparse. Piccoli restauri al dorso. Buon esemplare. L'opera, pubblicata per la prima volta a Napoli due anni prima, costituisce un commento e un'aggiunta al Tractatus de cessione iurium & actionum di Alfonso de Olea. Il De Luca (Molfetta, 1613-Napoli, 1700) fu giureconsulto ed ecclesiastico, canonico di San Nicola a Bari. "Avviato al sacerdozio, solo dopo aver ricevuto gli ordini sacri intraprese gli studi giuridici, senza tuttavia conseguire il dottorato. Probabilmente era uno di quegli ecclesiastici che, per un abuso inveterato, svolgevano attività forense. Fece le sue prime esperienze di giureconsulto nella terra natia; dedicò le sue opere maggiori a san Corrado, protettore di Molfetta, oppure a Veronica Spinola, signora della cittadina pugliese, per la quale scrisse anche una storia apologetica della famiglia (Tractatus de linea legali, Neapoli 1674). Schivo e modesto di carattere, pare che rifiutasse un vescovato offertogli da Innocenzo XI. Accettò invece un canonicato di collazione regia nella basilica di S. Nicola a Bari. Una scelta, questa, del tutto co … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bernoulli, Johann; Leibniz Gottfried; Bernoulli, Jakob; Ehrenfried Walther von Tschirnhaus
Grosse & Gleditsch, Leipzig. FIRST EDITION, FIRST PRINTING OF JOHANN BERNOULLI'S FAMOUS BRACHISTOCHRONE PROBLEM (sometimes called the Brachistochrone challenge). The Brachistochrone (Greek for 'shortest' and 'time) problem itself was one of the earliest examples of a class of problem now known as the calculus of variations. By the 19th century, thanks to Lagrange among others, all fundamental laws of nature could be formulated in terms of the calculus of variations - a kind of universal language of physics. Bernoulli issued his mathematical challenge in the context of the argument between Newton and Leibniz over who first invented the calculus, the mathematical study of change. While Newton, save for a small notice, made something of a secret of his discovery of fluxions, Leibniz had published his calculus in 1684. By 1695, he and his student, Johann Bernoulli, had developed the calculus into a magnificent tool for solving an array of problems. Bernoulli and Leibniz, however, were curious about how much Newton really knew. Together they devised a test, the Brachistochrone problem, confident that only a mathematician who knew the calculus could solve it. Following the custom of the time, they published it. The problem read as follows: "Let two points A and B be given in a vertical plane. To find the curve that a point M, moving on a path AMB , must follow such that, starting from A, it reaches B in the shortest time under its own gravity" (ibid). Johann added that this curve is not a straight line, but a curve well known to geometers. Wanting to lure Newton, Bernoulli introd … [Click Below for Full Description]

See ARCHIBALD GEIKIE Founders of Geology - 'Nowhere did speculation run so completely riot as in England with regard to theories of the origin and structure of our globe. This craze reached its height during the latter part of the seventeenth century. In 1681 Thomas Burnet published in Latin his Sacred Theory of the Earth. This work, republished in English, and favoured with the patronage of Charles II, enjoyed a wide popularity and made some impression even on the Continent. It discoursed of the original structure of our planet, and of the changes which it was destined to undergo until 'the consummation of all things.' As its title denotes, the book was meant to support orthodox religion. With this view, the Deluge was taken as one of the great events in the history of the planet. Previous to that time, it was asserted, there had been perpetual spring upon the earth, but the wickedness of mankin … [Click Below for Full Description]
