         1687 Francesco Redi Science Experiments on Insects Vipers SNAKE Natural History

      Napoli: Giacomo Raillard, 1687. - 1687 Francesco Redi Science Experiments on Insects Vipers SNAKE Natural History Francesco Redi was a 17th-century Italian physician who recorded his most famous biology experiments in “Experiments on the Generation of Insects”. This work, first published in 1668, disproved the vipers could consume wine, break glass, and that their venom was poisonous if ingested. His observations on snakes helped establish many of the accepted understandings of snakes, particularly venomous snakes. Redi played an important role in refuting ‘spontaneous generation’ – the theory that maggots arose from rotted meat. He was also the very first biologist to describe ectoparasites, ticks, parasite flies, and interesting experiments of chemotherapy. He discusses his observations on hippopotamuses and the capybara. This 1687 edition features six full-page engravings foliage, leaves, Annona tree fruit, and snake eggs. It is taken directly from the first edition published in Florence and includes Redi’s famous ‘Letters’ in addition to his ‘Experiments’. This collection of works was published before his most famous work ‘Bacco in Toscana’ a famous literary work on wine.

         CARINTHIA, AUSTRIA: NOVISSIMA CARINTHIAE TABULA.

      Augsburg: Johann Gottfried Pfautz (–1760) 1718 (reprint from original plates from circa 1800). 1687 - Copper engraving, originally dissected on 32 sections and mounted on linen (Very Good) 72 x 97 cm (28.3 x 38.2 inches). A rare large separately published map of Carinthia by Johann Baptist Zauchenberg, printed in Augsburg on the costs of the Carinthia government, served as a draft to later maps of Carinthia by Homann, Seutter and Le Rouge, among others. - This magnificent, separately published map of Carinthia in Austria, with parts of Slovenia in the south, was made by an Carinthian Jesuist Johann Baptist Zauchenberg and dedicated to his teacher Karl Adrian.The map shows the borders of Carinthia, with detailed geography and road connections. Zauchenberg based the map on the 17th century map by Isreal Holztwurm, but modernised the details and details on the infrastructure. The upper view of Klagenfurt is based on a copper engraving from Valvasor’s Topographia archiducatus Carinthiae from 1668. The image in the lower left cortner showcases the ancient ritual of inauguration of a Duke of Carantania. The Duchy of Carantania was a Slavic principality that emerged in the second half of the 7th century. In 889 it became March of Carinthia, a frontier district of the Carolingian Empire. The principality of Carantania is notable for the ancient inauguration of Carantanian dukes in the church in Maria Saal and on a on the Prince's Stone, an ancient Roman column capital, on the place of the ruined Roman city Virunum. The ceremony was held in Slovenian and German language. It was last performed in 1414, when the Habsburg Ernest the Iron was enthroned as Duke of Carinthia. The ceremony was first described by the chronicler John of Viktring in 1286 and is also mentioned in Jean Bodin's book Six livres de la République in 1576. The map was printed in Augsburg on the costs of the Carinthian government. In the followeing years its design served as a draft for maps of Carinthia by the following map makers:- JOHANN BAPTIST HOMANN (1664-1724), ca. 1724,- MATTHÄUS SEUTTER (1678-1757), um 1728-1731,- TOBIAS CONRAD LOTTER (1717-1777), 1772,- GEORGES-LOUIS LE ROUGE (ca 1707-ca 1790), between1748 and 1756,- FRANZ JOHANN JOSEPH VON REILLY (1766-1820), 1791,- JAN BARENT ELWE (1774-1815), 1791, etc. Two States of the Map and Original Copper Plates Reused - There are two, almost identical states of this map. The first bears a signature Johan. Spiegel Sculpsit. In the second state the signature was erased and replaced with Gottfrid Pfautz Svulpsit. A. V. The original plates, which survived until today and are kept by the Carinthian History Society, also beat the latter sign, proving that Johannes Spiegel made fists imprints and Johann Gottfried Pfautz (1687–1760) took over the plates some years later. The map was reprinted at different times from original plates well into the 19th century. This copy was probably made around 1800 and mas originally mounted on linen. Due to the large size of the map the survival rate of this title is extremely low. We could only find a few copies in libraries woorldwide and no copies in the auction records for the past generation. References: Paul Josef von Riegger, Caroli Andrian e S. J.

         Aesop’s Fables With His Life: In English, French, and Latin.

      London: H. Hills jun. for Francis Barlow, and are to be sold by Chr. Wilkinson, Tho. Fox, and Henry Faithorne, 1687. Rare second edition (first published in 1666; virtually all copies of the first edition were destroyed in the great fire of London of 1666) of this classic work. Folio, bound in full red morocco by Riviere & Son with the crest of The Earl of Derby on the front panel, 31 etched plates and 110 half-page illustrations by Francis Barlow with captions by Aphra Behn. Etched frontispiece, additional title, and coat of arms of the dedicatee, the Earl of Devonshire. In very good condition light toning and wear. Text in Latin, French and English. Rare and desirable. Aesop's Fables, or the Aesopica, is a collection of fables credited to Aesop, a slave and storyteller believed to have lived in ancient Greece between 620 and 564 BC. Of diverse origins, the stories associated with his name have descended to modern times through a number of sources and continue to be reinterpreted in different verbal registers and in popular as well as artistic media. The fables originally belonged to the oral tradition and were not collected for some three centuries after Aesop's death. By that time a variety of other stories, jokes and proverbs were being ascribed to him, although some of that material was from sources earlier than him or came from beyond the Greek cultural sphere. The process of inclusion has continued until the present, with some of the fables unrecorded before the later Middle Ages and others arriving from outside Europe. The process is continuous and new stories are still being added to the Aesop corpus, even when they are demonstrably more recent work and sometimes from known authors. Manuscripts in Latin and Greek were important avenues of transmission, although poetical treatments in European vernaculars eventually formed another. On the arrival of printing, collections of Aesop's fables were among the earliest books in a variety of languages. Through the means of later collections, and translations or adaptations of them, Aesop's reputation as a fabulist was transmitted throughout the world. Initially the fables were addressed to adults and covered religious, social and political themes. They were also put to use as ethical guides and from the Renaissance onwards were particularly used for the education of children. Their ethical dimension was reinforced in the adult world through depiction in sculpture, painting and other illustrative means, as well as adaptation to drama and song. In addition, there have been reinterpretations of the meaning of fables and changes in emphasis over time.

         1688 Amelot BIBLE French New Testament Illustrated Holy Land Map Port Royal 3v

      A Paris : Chez Francois Muguet, 1688, 87. 1687 - 1688 Amelot BIBLE French New Testament Illustrated Holy Land Map Port Royal 3v An impressive 17th-century printing of the French New Testament. This translation was based on the Clementine Vulgate furnished with notes by Denis Amelote. According to Darlow and Moule, “Amelote (1606-78) was a bitter controversialist against the Jansenists. Annoyed by a satirical replay of P. Nicole, he used his influence to prevent the publication of the newly-completed Port Royal version of the New Testament, which consequently had to be printed outside France. He thus secured an open field for this annotated translation of the New Testament, prepared by himself, and published first in 1666, and again in 1681. According to this own statement, Amelote undertook this work at the request of the Archbishop of Toulouse and the Bishop of Montauban, who had been appointed by l’Assemblee generale du Clerge de France de l’an 1655’ to secure a fresh version. According to the Port-Royalists, confirmed by Sainte-Beuve, Ameote’s production is merely the Port Royal version, disguised by certain changes.” This three-volume set is bound in two tomes – volume 1 dated 1688, volume 2 dated 1687, while volume 3 has only a half-title. It includes foot-notes, tables, and maps. Illustrations include a map of the Holy Land, Paul’s missionary journeys, folding views of the temple of Jerusalem, Herod’s temple, and the city of Jerusalem.

         William Penn’s Letter to King James II: "Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God, the things that are God’s."

      London 1687 - Broadsheet. The Speech of William Penn to his Majesty upon his Delivering the Quakers Address. [London, 1687.] 2 pp., quarto (175 x 280 mm). A religious liberty foundation document. On behalf of the Quakers, William Penn appeals to King James II to protect freedom of conscience, starting with the famous quotation from Jesus: "IT was the saying of our Blessed Lord to the Captious Jews, in the case of Tribute, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God, the things that are God's. this distinction ought to be observed by all Men, in the Conduct of their lives, so the King has given Us an Illustrious Example in His own Person that excites Us to it; For while HE was a Subject, HE gave Caesar His Tribute; and now HE is Caesar, gives GOD his Due, (viz) The Sovereignty over Consciences." At the bottom of the second page, James offers his acknowledgement "that conscience ought not to be Forced." In 1687 James II proclaimed the Declaration of Indulgence or Declaration of Liberty of Conscience, the first step in establishing freedom of religion in Great Britain. Complete TranscriptThe SPEECH OF WILLIAM PENN To His MAJESTY, Upon His Delivering the Quakers Address.May it Please the KING,IT was the saying of our Blessed Lord to the Captious Jews, in the case of Tribute, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God, the things that are God's. As this distinction ought to be observed by all Men, in the Conduct of their lives, so the KING has given Us an Illustrious Example in His own Person that excites Us to it; For while HE was a Subject, HE gave Caesar His Tribute; and now HE is a Caesar, gives GOD his Due, (viz) The Sovereignty over Consciences. It were a great shame then, for any English-Man (that pretends to Christianity,) not to give GOD his Due. By this Grace HE has relieved His Distressed Subjects from Their Cruel Sufferings, and raised to Himself a New and Lasting Empire, by adding Their Affections to Their Duty. And We Pray GOD to continue the KING in this Noble Resolution; For HE is now upon a Principle, that has good Nature, Christianity, and the goodness of Civil Society on its side, a Security to Him beyond all the little Arts of Government. I would not that any should think, that We came hither with design to fill the Gazet with Our Thanks, but as Our Sufferings would have moved Stones to Compassion; So We should be harder, if We were not moved to Gratitude.Now, since the KING's Mercy and Goodness have reached to Us throughout the Kingdom of England, and Principality of Wales; Our General Assembly from all those parts, met at London about Our Church-Affairs has appointed Us to Wait upon the KING with Our Humble Thanks, and Me to Deliver them; Which I do by this ADDRESS, with all the Affection and Respect of a Dutiful Subject.His MAJESTIES most Gracious ANSWER.Gentlemen,I Thank You heartily for Your Address, some of You know, (I am sure You do Mr. Pen,) that it was always My Principle, that Conscience ought not to be Forced. And that all Men ought to have the Liberty of Their Consciences: And what I have Promis'd in My Declaration, I will continue to Perform as long as I Live; And I Hope, before I Die, to Settle It so, that After Ages shall have no Reason to alter It.FINIS.ConditionMinor toning at top margin, minor loss at bottom left not affecting text.

      Laurent d’Houry 1687 - Troisième édition augmentée (la première est de 1666), qui se compose de 6 parties (416 pages [414]) auxquelles a été ajouté le secret du remède souverain du prieur de Carrières (6 pages à pagination propre). Le traité est complet : principes, opérations, fourneaux, usages et pratiques de la chimie, transformations des végétaux, les substances liées aux animaux, celles qu’on obtient des minéraux et des métaux, les formules pour la santé, les secrets pour la beauté, les potions les plus diverses Marie Meurdrac (vers 1610-1680) est une des premières chimistes française. Elle s’inspire de la théorie des trois Principes alchimiques de Paracelse (Sel, Mercure et Soufre distillés à partir de substances animales, végétales et minérales) mais écarte volontairement les opérations sur l’or et l’argent. A sa profonde connaissance de l’alchimie, elle joint son savoir basé sur les travaux de Rupescissa, Ramon Llull, Joseph du Chesne et de Nicolas Lémery. Légers manques de cuir, mors superficiellement fendus, réparation ancienne à la planche repliée, autres défauts mineurs, bon état général.

The treatise is complete: principles, operations, furnaces, uses and practices of chemistry, transformations of plants, substances related to animals, those obtained from minerals and metals, formulas for health, secrets for beauty, potions the most diverse . Marie Meurdrac (c. 1610-1680) is one of the first French female chemists. Taking her inspiration in the theory of the three alchemical principles of Paracelsis (salt, mercury and sulfur distilled from animal, vegetable and mineral substances), she voluntarily dismisses operations on gold and silver however. She shows a profound knowledge of alchemy in which she introduces knowledge based on the works of Rupescissa, Ramon Llull, Joseph du Chesne and Nicolas Lemery.

         The History of the Conquest of Spain by the Moors.

      London: printed by F. Leach, for S. H. and are to be sold by T. Fox,, 1687. Together with the Life of the most Illustrious Monarch Almanzor. And of the Several Revolutions of the Mighting Empire of the Caliphs, and of the African Kingdoms. Composed in Arabick by Abulcacim Tariff Abentariq, one of the Generals in that Spanish Expedition; and Translated into Spanish by Michael de Luna, Interpreter to Philip the Second. Now made English. Octavo (186 x 110 mm). Recent calf to style, raised bands within blind rules to spine, gilt-lettered red label, decorative panelling to boards in blind, marbled edges, matching endpapers. Bookplate of Wriothesley Russell (1680-1711), 2nd Duke of Bedford to title verso. Light browning, occasional mild spotting or soiling, original edge-marbling encroaching along foot of title, sigs. [A5-6] slightly loose at top cord, [A5] chipped at upper outer corner, the text unaffacted. Very good. First edition in English of the first part (all published) of Miguel de Luna's Verdadera historia del rey Don Rodrigo (1592-1600), itself purportedly translated from an Arabic source, but in fact an original composition. Luna's account of the Arab conquest of Spain to the year 761 was considered genuine by Southey, dismissed by George Ticknor and other scholars as a forgery, and is now appreciated as an important, essentially literary document from the age of Cervantes, who knew the work. The Verdadera historia and Don Quixote (1605-1615) "abound with the same phrases and diction", and Cervantes specifically ridicules a passage in Luna in which Tariff fulfils a prophecy by the presence of a mole on his back—Quixote strips to reveal his mole as evidence of his strength in Part I Chapter 30 (see Hodges, "Holey Moley: Don Quixote's significant Señal", in Bulletin of the Cervantes Society of America 29:2, 2009). Luna (c.1545–1615) was a physician and court interpreter of Morisco descent. In attributing authorship to an Arab writer he was following what was already an established tradition in post-Reconquista Spain.

         Journal du Voyage de Siam fait en M.DC.LXXXV. et M.DC.LXXXVI.

      Paris Sebastien Mabre-Cramoisy 1687 - First edition. 4to., [iv], 416 pp., Title with woodcut vignette; some occasional browning and spotting. Contemporary calf, sides with the gilt arms, spine in six compartments, gilt-lettered red morocco lettering-piece in one, others gilt, neat repairs to extremities, a very handsome example. Rare first edition account of the journal of the Chaumont embassy (1685-1686) sent by Louis XIV to Siam. Choisy was a missionary sent to try to convert King Narai. This mission failed, but Choisy's book, compiled from the experiences of Abbe de Choisy, Father Guy Tachard and the Chevalier de Chaumont, was of great interest and was republished as recently as 1930. Narai was king of Siam from 1656-88, and his credited with producing the first 'golden age' of Thai literature. Encouraged by his foreign minister Constantine Phaulkon the famed Greek adventurer who became a prominent figure in Narai's court, Narai hoped to develop trade relations with the French in order to break the domination of the Dutch East India Company. Embassies were exchanged between Siam and France throughout his reign. Choisy was a colourful character: "De Choisy was born in Paris. His father was attached to the household of the duke of Orléans, and his mother, who was on intimate terms with Anne of Austria, was regularly called upon to amuse Louis XIV. By a whim of his mother, the boy was dressed like a girl until he was eighteen, and, after appearing for a short time in man's costume, he resumed woman's dress on the advice—doubtless satirical—of Madame de La Fayette. He delighted in the most extravagant toilettes until he was publicly rebuked by the duc de Montausier, when he retired for some time to the provinces, using his disguise to assist his numerous intrigues".

         The History of the Conquest of Spain by the Moors. Together with the Life of the most Illustrious Monarch Almanzor. And of the Several Revolutions of the Mighting Empire of the Caliphs, and of the African Kingdoms. Composed in Arabick by Abulcacim Tariff Abentariq, one of the Generals in that Spanish Expedition; and Translated into Spanish by Michael de Luna, Interpreter to Philip the Second. Now made English.

      London: printed by F. Leach, for S. H. and are to be sold by T. Fox, 1687 - Octavo (186 x 110 mm). Recent calf to style, raised bands within blind rules to spine, gilt-lettered red label, decorative panelling to boards in blind, marbled edges, matching endpapers. Bookplate of Wriothesley Russell (1680-1711), 2nd Duke of Bedford to title verso. Light browning, occasional mild spotting or soiling, original edge-marbling encroaching along foot of title, sigs. [A5-6] slightly loose at top cord, [A5] chipped at upper outer corner, the text unaffacted. Very good. First edition in English of the first part (all published) of Miguel de Luna's Verdadera historia del rey Don Rodrigo (1592-1600), itself purportedly translated from an Arabic source, but in fact an original composition. Luna's account of the Arab conquest of Spain to the year 761 was considered genuine by Southey, dismissed by George Ticknor and other scholars as a forgery, and is now appreciated as an important, essentially literary document from the age of Cervantes, who knew the work. The Verdadera historia and Don Quixote (1605-1615) "abound with the same phrases and diction", and Cervantes specifically ridicules a passage in Luna in which Tariff fulfils a prophecy by the presence of a mole on his back—Quixote strips to reveal his mole as evidence of his strength in Part I Chapter 30 (see Hodges, "Holey Moley: Don Quixote's significant Señal", in Bulletin of the Cervantes Society of America 29:2, 2009). Luna (c.1545–1615) was a physician and court interpreter of Morisco descent. In attributing authorship to an Arab writer he was following what was already an established tradition in post-Reconquista Spain. His account is also notable for contrasting the cruelty of the Visigoths with the virtue and tolerance of their Arab successors: it was possibly this emphasis which irritated 19th century scholars such as Ticknor, who were preoccupied with defining a concept of Spanish identity based on Gothic origins. This is the issue with S.H. in the imprint and the dedicatory epistle signed with initials M.T.; a variant imprint the same year had S. H. removed and the epistle signed Matt.

         Relation de l'Inquisition de Goa.

      A Leyde; chez Daniel Gaasbeek; marchand libraire 1687 - small 8vo., (8) + 220pp., small marginal defect in one leaf (C4) with loss of letters from running headline and 3 or 4 letters of text on verso, in 19th century quarter calf over marbled boards, spine fully gilt and lettered, marbled edges. A good, crisp, copy. First edition. Charles Gabriel Dellon (1649-1709) was a French Catholic physician and traveller in the East Indies. After a dispute with the Governor of Daman in 1673, Dellon was arrested and sent to Portuguese Goa to face the Inquisition. In 1677, after two years of torture and five years of galley service, Dellon successfully appealed his case before the Grand Tribunal in Lisbon and was released. His account here is a vivid portrait of the Inquisition in Goa and went through several later editions. The Goa Inquisition was the office of the Portuguese Inquisition acting in Portuguese India, and in the rest of the Portuguese empire in Asia. It was established in 1560, briefly suppressed from 1774 to 1778, and finally abolished in 1812. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         Tractatus duo. Primus de remotis et proximis mixti principiis in ordine ad corpus humanum spectatis. Secundus de natura, differentiis, subjectis, conditionibus, & causis fermentationis, ..

      Lyon, Joannem Certe, 1687, 4, (12), 348 pages and 9 mostly folded plates, comtemporary calf with spine gold tooled minor spotting, fine copy. Rare first edition of the Vieussens's first work on anatomy of the heart (well illustrated with 9 folded plate) and nature of the blood. The work is also particulary important for his study on fermentation. "One of Vieussens' major areas of study was fermentation. He investigated the chemical composition of the blood with great fervor but an equal lack of success. The discovery of an acidic salt in the blood was the source of a long and painful public polemic with the Montpellier professor Pierre Chirac, who claimed to be the first to have extracted this substance from the blood. The priority dispute was particularly unfruitful in that the discovery was erroneous. Nevertheless, until the end of his life Vieussens considered his chemical research on the blood to be his most important work." (DSB) Even if Vieussens is also famous for his impressive Neurographia published in 1684/85, his major contribution in medicine are in cardiology for which theTractactus are the first steps. Indeed, published 18/17 years before the better know, Novum vasorum corporis humani systema (1705), this first cardiological work consists the first steps of Vieussens's to his most important contribution in cardiology.Tractatus duo. Primus de remotis et proximis mixti principiis in ordine ad corpus humanum spectatis.

Some had noted that the heart was the living pump that sent the blood coursing through the arteries others observed that the heart had a tendency to enlarge when it labored under the disadvantage of a disease or deformity still others noticed that unusual sounds were emitted when the valves of the heart were twisted out of shape. There was one physician who in the early years of modern medicine made the heart his one absorbing interest in life, who studied the heart in all its intricacies of structure, shape and form, and arrived at conclusions regarding its function in health and disease. This physician was Raymond Vieussens. Raymond Vieussens was the son of a lieutenant-colonel in the French army. He was born in the little village of Vieussens in Rouvergue, France, in 1641. Altogether too little is known of his life. He graduated in medicine from the University of Montpellier (whose most illustrious alumnus was Rabelair, doctor, priest, and author). At the age of 30, Vieussens became physician to the Hospital of St. Eloys. Dr. Vieussens was interested in all aspects of human anatomy, but his first great interest was in the nervous System. In 1671, he began a systematic investigation of the nervous System with the stated purpose " .. not only to improve as much as I could the beautiful treatise on the brain and spinal cord of the celebrated Willis, but, in addition, to describe exactly all the nerves of the extremities, the description of which he dared not undertake, saying that it was the work of an infinitely great and infinitely tedious labor .... I undertook to describe the nerves of the skin although M. Diemerbroeck had regarded their descriptions as impossible." Vieussens was setting high and noble tasks for himself. There was not the least doubt that the young doctor had great confidence in his abilities as did all young doctors. At any rate, Vieussens began his task in neuroanatomy with tremendous enthusiasm. During the first ten years of his Service at the Hospital of Sr. Eloys he dissected 500 human bodies in an attempt to find out what caused their deaths, at the same time paying particular attention to the structure of the nervous System. He used these bodies "not only to discover the normal structure of the brain and spinal cord, but also to follow the nerves from their origins to their insertions."In 1684 Vieussens assembled all his dissection notes and observations regarding the nervous System and published them in book form under the title "Neurographia Universalis." This immediately became the best and most authoritative work of its kind, and Vieussens was catapulted into fame. Honors came fast. He was immediately elected a member of the Academy of Sciences in Paris. In England Vieussens' book was received with equally great enthusiasm, and he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in London. The book was written with such fluent grace and easy style that even laymen could read and understand it. Rather astonishingly for such a scholarly work it became a best seller, ln fact, the king of Spain was so much interested that he read the entire work during his trip from Montpellier to Madrid. There is now no doubt that Vieussens "Neurographia" was the most complete work on the nervous System of the time. It gave the most complete description of the brain and spinal cord, pointing out that the spinal cord is not simply a Prolongation of the brain but an independent structure showing enlargements where the nerves emerge at various places. He further showed that the spinal cord has functions of its own which are of the utmost importance in the human body and described various parts of the brain for the first time, notably the pyramids and olivary bodies. From then on his reputation became world-wide. In 1688 he was called to Paris to attend the Marquis de Wardes and was granted a pension of one thousand pounds a year by Louis XIV. "His Majesty orderd me," said Vieussens, "when I had the honor to thank. him for the great favor, to continue to work as much as I could and make new discoveries in the human body." The new problem that Vieussens assigned himself was the study of-the lymphatics and blood vessels of the body. He entered upon this new task with great vigor. A short time after his arrival in Paris, Mme. de Montpensier, the cousin of Louis XIV, appointed Vieussens her physician, a post he held until her death in 1693. After this he returned co Montpellier and in 1705 published a book embodying his studies of the lymphatics and blood vessels which attracted widespread attention and praise.There is no doubt that Raymond Vieussens was a man of great talent and versatility. He was not merely content to be known as a great anatomist he also wanted fame as a chemist. Unfortunately, he was not very proficient in this field. For example, he believed that he had made a great discovery by distilling an acid from a mixture of blood and clay. He obtained permission to demonstrate the new discovery publicly at Montpellier, in the great amphitheatre of the faculty of medicine before both professors and students. He had spoken before the assembly for only a short time when one of the faculty members, Chirac, arose and claimed the discovery as his own. In the resultant confusion, the meeting was hurriedly adjourned. The dispute continued to rage, however, until Astruc, one of the leading doctors of the day, was induced to act as an arbiter. He decided that it was absurd co quarrel over an imaginary substance and that the acid obtained by distillation did not come from the blood but from the sub-stances added co it. Thereafter Vieussens determined to devote his talents and energies to more familiar fields, namely, anatomy and physiology. After completing his work on the lymphatics and blood vessels, he "recognized the impossibility of discovery and explained clearly the primary, natural, moving principle of those liquids without having also given a clear idea of the true structure of the heart." This naturally led Vieussens to a careful study of the heart, which, when published in book form, was the most thorough study co appear up to that time. Vieussens mixed fancy with fact in his writings. Although some of his speculations were erroneous, others were strangely prophetic of modern findings concerning the functions of the human heart. Vieussens' book was an attempt to explain the structure and movements of the heart, and he described many cases of heart disease to aid in his explanations. His work on the heart was arranged and written in an orderly and logical manner, beginning with a discussion of the outermost covering of the heart, the pericardium. Vieussens vividly described the clinical course of several patients who had died of an inflammation of the pericardium and described what he found at autopsy. Among other things, Vieussens described the course of the muscular fibers of the heart remarkably well. He correctly described the structure of the left ventricle, the large chamber, the course of the coronary vessels that supply the heart with blood, and the valve in the large coronary vein. The high point in his book is reached in Chapter XVI, which described the internal surface of the left ventricle. It is here that we find a description of a patient suffering from stenosis (closing up) of the mitral valves and of another patient suffering from aortic insufficiency (the valves not closing properly). The first of these patients was a druggist, Thomas d'Assis, aged 30. He was admitted to St. Eloys Hospital where Dr. Vieussens examined him. "I examined his state he was lying in bed, his head high. His respiration seemed to me very difficult, and his pulse appeared feeble and quite irregular his lips were the color of lead, and his eyes were downcast the legs and thighs were swollen and cold rather than warm." This patient died one week later, and Vieussens performed an autopsy. He found the heart to be markedly enlarged, the coronary veins dilated, and the cavity of the right ventricle and the right auricle had become excessively large. Vieussens continued his autopsy, and "in examining the extraordinary dilation of the trunk of the left pulmonary vein, and of its common op

        Nova, ed esatta descrizione del Seraglio del Gran Turco con tutte le sue parti interiori, minutamente distinte, e spiegate secondo lo stato presente in cui si troua sotto l'imperio di Mahomet IV hoggidì regnante. Dove sono sdescritte molte singolarità, che da pochi, ò certamente da niuno, possono essere state vedute, e considerate, e perciò non possono senza fauole, o aggiunte esser messe in luce da alcun'altro prima d'hora. Publicata già in lingua francese dal sig. Tauernier, e trasporatata.

      per Ambrogio Ramellati, in Milano 1687 - In-12° (155x90mm), pp. (24), 330, (16) di indice, legatura moderna della legatoria Defilippi di Torino in m. pergamena con titolo manoscritto al dorso. Dedicatoria a Fabrizio Serbelloni. Sparsi aloni e fioriture, ma in buono stato. Seconda edizione italiana (la prima è del 1682) della Nouvelle Relation de l'Intérieur du Serrail du Grand Seigneur (Paris, 1658), importante relazione di viaggi in Turchia in cui il Tavernier, oltre a descrivere con estrema ricchezza di notizie il Gran Serraglio di Costantinopoli, fornisce (pp. 1-156) una quantità di preziose informazioni sulle cariche e le dignità dell'Impero Ottomano, sulla monetazione ed il commercio della Turchia del XVII secolo, sugli eunuchi, delle accoglienze riservate agli emissari diplomatici di nazioni straniere, dei bagni tuchi del Serraglio, dei doni inviati dal Gran Signore ogni anno alla Mecca, del diffondersi delle confessioni islamiche in Asia, Africa ed Europa. L'opera contiene anche una descrizione generale di Costantinopoli, della sua storia, delle sue meraviglie artistico-architettoniche e del Bosforo, nonché De'Cosrumi, della Religione, delli Riti, e delle Orationi de'Turchi, includendo anche cenni sulle opere pie, sulla sanità, sui giochi e i passatempi, ecc. Il Tavernier (Parigi, 1605-Mosca, 1689), barone di Aubonne e grande viaggiatore in Oriente,visitò primamente Costantinopoli nel 1630, allorché prese parte ad una guerra contro i Turchi. Dalla Turchia egli proseguì alla volta della Persia; tornato in Francia, ripartì per le sue peregrinazioni asiatiche nel 1638, spingendosi sino a Golconda, dove a lungo dimorò e si arricchì commerciando in pietre preziose. Egli fece la spola tra la Francia e le Indie per altre quattro volte e ricevette una patente di nobiltà dal Re Sole in quanto i suoi traffici di gemme lo avevano reso grato alla corte francese. Si spense a Mosca nel 1689. Cfr. Blackmer, 230. Atabey, 1199. Wing, 255. Brunet, V, 681. Graesse, VI, 43. Cfr. Cox, I, 275: We discover in his writings a greater compass of thought and a more masterly turn in his observations than in almost any other book of the kind. The interest in Taverniers travels lies in the personal experiences and adventures he relates. Italiano
