REDI, Francesco.
H. Weinstein. Amsterdam, H. Wetstein, 1685-1686. In 12 de [10]-216-[37 index]-40-[6 index]-[2]-312-[32 index]pp., reliure en plein vélin rigide de l'époque, pièce de titre de papier ocre de l'époque, encadrée d'un double filet doré, deux petits manques dans les angles, titre doré, dos très légèrement sali, petites taches sur les marges latérales des plats, sig. d'app. et lettres à l'encre noire sur la première page de garde et le premier contreplat, deux frontispices ornés de gravures, 59 gravures en n/b, certaines dépliantes, représentant diverses espèces du règne végétal et animal, intérieur frais, tranches bleues, bel et bel exemplaire. 1100 € Cette édition est la traduction latine du volume ''Esperienze intorno alla generazione degli insetti'', publié en 1668. Dans cette oeuvre majeure, l'auteur contredit le phénomène de génération spontanée, héritage d'un concept élaboré par Aristote, qui prévalait encore au XVIIème siècle dans le monde scientifique, et non démenti par Galilée qui en 1632 dans son livre ''Dialogo dei due massimi sistemi del mondo" reconnaît partager cette thèse avec les aristoteliciens. Francesco Redi démontrera par ses observations au microscope que l'apparition de vers dans les cadavres n'est absolument pas un phénomène de génération spontanée mais le fruit d'une ponte, affirmation qui sera corroborée par son collègue Felice Fontana en 1767 et 1781. Francesco Redi (Arezzo 1626 - Pise 1697), étudiera le venin des serpents, notamment de la vipère, prouvant l'innocuité du venin s'il est ingéré, enfin il est considéré comme l'inventeur de la médecine lég … [Click Below for Full Description]

The Curious Pencil of The Ever Memorable Sir Henry Wotton
London-B. Tooke and T. Sawbridge, 1685. Book. Hardbound volume in brown cloth covered boards with gilt title to the spine. Sir Henry Wotton (1568-December, 1639) was an English author and diplomat. In 1602 he was living at Florence, and a plot to murder James VI of Scotland having come to the ears of the grand-duke of Tuscany, Wotton was entrusted with letters to warn the king of the danger, and with Italian antidotes against poison. As Ottavio Baldi he travelled to Scotland by way of Norway. He was well received by James, and remained three months at the Scottish court, retaining his Italian incognito. He then returned to Florence, but on receiving the news of James's accession hurried to England. James knighted him, and offered him the embassy at Madrid or Paris; but Wotton, knowing that both these offices involved ruinous expense, desired rather to represent James at Venice. In 1627 he received a pension of 200, and in 1630 this was raised to 500 on the understanding that he should write a history of England. He did not neglect the duties of his provostship, and was happy in being able to entertain his friends lavishly. His most constant associates were Izaak Walton and John Hales. A bend in the Thames below the Playing Fields, known as Black Potts, is still pointed out as the spot where Wotton and Izaak Walton fished in company. Sir Henry Wotton was not an industrious author, and his writings are very small in bulk. During his lifetime he published only two works: The Elements of Architecture (1624), which is a free translation of de Architectura by Marcus Vitruvius Pol … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Acupuncture]
Juko Jushikei Hakki. Three parts in one volume. Kyoto (?), Enami Jinbee, Genroku 8 (= 1685). 4to size (27.0 x 19.0 cm). Xylographically printed on 69 double leaves folded in an accordion, or oriental, style, with 16 full-page woodcut plates. Original blue paper wrappers with xylographic text vignette on front. Contained in a modern blue cloth box made in Japanese style. Very rare illustrated work on acupuncture. Bibliographically, little is known about this work. It was anonymously published, and our copy seems to be a second issue. Mestler describes a similar work that was issued in 1684; this copy was published in 1685. The book was written in classical Chinese (in Japanese typescript). The author claims that he bases his writings on several classic Chinese medical texts from the 14th and 15th century. The beautiful illustrations appear to be made in the style of the mid-14th-century Chinese classic "Shi si jing fa hui" (An Elucidation of the Fourteen Channels) by Hua Shou. The plates show bodies of men with the acupunctural nodes indicated. The first 10 leaves have extensive contemporary handwritten annotations in two different hands (in red and black). Minor worming to lower blank margin of last two leaves. Wrappers with some wear and slight loss of blue paper, some uniform light age toning, but otherwise a very good copy of this rare work.

Le Gallois, P.
Estienne Michallet, Paris, [ but probably Leiden] second edition, 1685 - Contemporary speckled calf, spine in compartments, spine richly gilt, gilt edge decoration to boards, 12mo, 14 cm, engraved additional pictorial title, [8], 240 pp. Le Gallois is generally held to have stolen substantial parts of this work - his history of libraries, from the time of the Hebrews, the oriental nations, the Greeks and the Romans - from an earlier Latin treatise by Lomeier. But Le Gallois adds separate chapters on the prices of books before the invention of printing, on early printing history, on the classification of books, and on collecting a representative library - the last demonstrating the author's considerable knowledge and good taste. The imprint is false and the book was probably printed in the Netherlands - Rahir identifies the fleuron on the title-page as that of "S. Matthysz of Leyden". Bookplate of Vettor Giusti on front pastedown endpaper, front board a little bowed, front joint split at head and tail and head of spine worn with loss (1mm), boards slightly scuffed with small scrapes, corners slightly worn, contents generally browned with occasional light foxing.

CHAGAS, Fr. Antonio das, O.F.M. [Antonio da Fonseca Soares].
Coimbra, Na Officina de Joseph Ferreyra, 1685. 8°, early limp vellum (a few stains; remains of ties), horizontal manuscript title on spine. Woodcut initials and tailpieces. Some faint dampstaining and small hole in blank portion of title page. Overall in very good condition. Early ink inscription on flyleaf, facing title page: "De bro [?] de Soror Izabel // Acta [?] de São Jozeph." (8 ll.), 316 pp., (1 l.). *** Little-recorded second edition (or issue?) of this addition to a classic work. The Obras espirituaes, first published in Lisbon, 1684 and 1687, have earned Fr. Antonio das Chagas a foremost place in Portuguese literature. According to Belchior Pontes, the Obras espirituaes posthumas first appeared in Lisbon, 1684, and again at Coimbra, 1685 (this edition); Coimbra, 1700; Lisbon, 1715; and Coimbra, 1728. The Lisbon, 1684 edition is described in Ameal 590 (xviii, 316, ii pp.), Nepomuceno 460 (xvii, 316, 2 pp.), and Castello Melhor 702 (without collation). Given the similarity of this collation with that of our Coimbra, 1685 edition, it is possible that the 1684 edition is merely a different issue, but without comparing the two side by side, it is impossible to be certain.António da Fonseca Soares was born at Vidigueira in 1631, and spent his youth as a soldier. After killing a man in a duel arising from one of many love affairs, he fled to Brazil. When he returned (1657?) he attained the rank of captain, but in 1663 abandoned his military career and took vows in the Franciscan monastery at Évora. He died in 1682 at the monastery at Varatojo, which he had founded. Bell … [Click Below for Full Description]

Later vellum with abridged title written on spine.* Mint copy of a collection of six papers by two authors (Redi and Lachmund) that are combined together as the second Latin edition of the Opuscula. The following are included: (1) "Experimenta circa generationem insectorum". DSB, vol.11, p.341: "Redi's masterpiece is considered to be 'Esperienze intorno alla generazione degl'Insetti...' (1668), in which he disproved the doctrine of spontaneous generation in insects, inherited from Aristotle and still considered dogma. The microscope revealed in insects an organization as marvelous as it was unsuspected..."; (2) "Generationem Insectorum" with its index; (3) "de Ave Diomedea section of F. Lachmund on the Albatross, with 5 plates, numbered "A", "B", I-III. the last four folded; (4) "Experimenta circa varias res Naturales"; (5) the important "Observationes de viperis" (the first edition of this part was published in 1664 in a quarto format in Florence), and (6) its "Epistola". A very nice, clean copy. Binding seems later, but is expertly made and looks contemporary. Especially important because of the Viper part, and the fine illustrations (e.g. of Siphonaptera and Phthiraptera). Horn-Schenkling, 17788. Nissen ZBI, 3320, 3322.

ARCHIMEDES of Syracuse
Palermo: Cyllenius Hesperius, 1685. First edition of Maurolico’s translation of Archimedes, one of the two most important versions of the sixteenth century (the other being Commandino’s). Francesco Maurolico (1494-1575) “ranked with Commandino as a first-rate student of Archimdes, and indeed these two … were the outstanding interpreters of Archimedes in the first three-quarters of the century. However, Maurolico’s interest, unlike Commandino’s, was not in establishing a philologically sound version or translation of the Archimedean texts that survived but in presenting mathematically coherent texts that achieved Archimdedes’ objectives. This will become particularly clear when we examine … those texts in which Maurolico skillfully grafted medieval material onto the traditional Archimedean texts” (Clagett, Archimdes in the Middle Ages, vol. 3, part III, p.749; all of his chapter five, ‘Francesco Maurolico in the Medieval Archimedes’, pp.749-1053, is devoted to this translation). <br/><br/>& “This paraphrase of Archimedean texts was made by the Sicilian Francesco Maurolico (1494-1575) probably between 1534 and 1550. A partial edition was printed at Messina between 1670 and 1672 by Paolo Bonacota, printer to the Senate of Messina, which largely paid for the edition. This was, however, never published, as the editor, Borelli, had to leave Sicily for Rome. The sheets of what had been printed remained stored in the house of one Lorenzo di Tommaso, an apothecary, who had obtained the original manuscript from the family of … [Click Below for Full Description]

Spine in 5 compartments with raised bands, boards ruled in blind with blind tooling at the corners; edges stained red.

Hinges and boards at the hinge sides have been neatly mended and patched; light wear to the edges and spine tips, else a very good copy. With an old seminary bookplate on the front paste down. One of Dodwell's many theological treatises, this one taking the side of Patavius on the subject of the priesthood of the laity and the celebration of the Eucharist where pastors are absent.
