        Officia Propria Sanctorum Insignis Basilicae S. Mariae Transtyberim A Sacra Rituum Congregatione recognita, & approbata anno Jubilaei MDCCL. Romae MDCCL. Apud Antonium de Rubeis

      A wonderful example of a Roman Catholic ritual/mass book in a nobleman's binding probably owned by a Cardinal near the Vatican in Rome in the 18th Century. Original red silk ribbon marker still present! Also of curious note is an engraved title page of the same book dated 1687 with a letterpress title page dated 1750. The book was most likely printed in 1750, and the engraved title page was added for decorative/deluxe purposes. In addition, there are some pages bound into the very end of the book probably about 50 years later, dating circa 1800-20 which are of a different size as compared to the rest of the pages.Title and Printer: Officia Propria Sanctorum Insignis Basilicae S.

        [FOUR WORKS BOUND TOGETHER]: [I] Anatomia Seu interiora Rerum, Cum Animatarum tum Inanimatarum, ope & beneficio exquisitissimorum Microscopiorum Detecta variisque experimentis demonstrate ? [see titles below].

      Lugduni Batavorum:: Cornelium Boutesteyn. 1687. hardcover. 5 works in one volume. Sm. 4to. [ii], [iv], 3-78; 258; [viii], 124;. [viii], 568, [xiv]; [ii], 192, [viii] pp. Page numbers 231-232. repeated in pagination [first section]. Numerous engraved plates. (many folding); occasional light foxing. Original vellum backed with. quarter calf with elaborate gilt-stamped spine; some wear to joints.. [Spine title: ?LEEUWENHOCK ? OPUSCULA VARIA?]. Bookplates of Pierre. Lambert and Pierre Amalric; three rubber-stamps on title (scribbled),. final leaf with two additional stamps (not scribbled) Bibliotheca. Mellicensis.. First or early collected printings of Leeuwenhoek?s letters ? THE FIRST SYSTEMATIC USE OF THE MICROSCOPE. ?To Antonio van Leeuwenhoek, of Delft, belongs the high merit of having been the first to use the microscope systematically and having brought the construction of the simple microscope in his own hands to a high degree of perfection? Self-taught and never having attended a university, ignorant of Latin and Greek and of the classical texts, he became one of the greatest and most expert microscopists, thanks to the sagacity of his observations and the perfection of his technique? ? Arturo Castiglioni, A History of Medicine ? pp. 528-529). ¶ ?Leeuwenhoek was a mast lens-grinder and, during his lifetime, constructed several hundred microscopes, grinding a new lends for each new investigation which he undertook. ¶ These volumes contain some eighty letters from among several hundred in which Leeuwenhoek communicated the results of his microscopical investigations to the Royal Society in London and which were published in its Philosophical Transactions over many years. Though not a trained scientist and unable to follow up his hundreds of investigations, he opened up avenues of anatomy hitherto unknown and unseen, leading to accurate physiology and, in turn, to accurate therapeutics. One example is use of his perfected microscope by Malpighi ? to define the ultimate structure of the capillaries, which closed the final link in Harvey?s description of the circulation of the blood. Leeuwenhoek first described the individual plant cell, the individual striped muscle cell, spermatozoa, red corpuscles, and the crystalline lens of the eye. These works are richly illustrated with Leeuwenhoek?s drawings, which are of fundamental importance to histologic anatomy.? ? Heirs of Hippocrates 585, 586, 587, 589, 590. ¶ ?Van Leeuwenhoek was the first to see protozoa under the microscope. He found microorganisms in the mouth and on the teeth and, for the first time, furnished exact descriptions of the shapes of bacterial clumps and chains as well as of individual bacilli. No one else was to see bacteria again for over a century. He also wrote about the cell nucleus and the structure of spermatozoa, gave the first accurate account of red blood corpuscles, delineated the conformation of the crystalline lens, and discovered the sarcolemma and the striped nature of skeletal muscle. His thorough examination of the capillary circulation which Malpighi had recently touched on briefly with appreciating its significance, completed proof of the blood circulation proposed by Harvey sixty years earlier.? ? LeFanu- Lilly Library. ¶ ?Anatomia Seu interiora Rerum? comes in two states: this is the issue with ?Inanimatarum? on the title instead of ?Inanimarum?. Other points include: ?nebeficio? instead of ?beneficio?. Cf. Dobell 22. ¶ Contains Leeuwenhoek letters: Anatomia seu ? (1687): 28-31, 34-6, 38, 42- 52; Continuatio epistolarum ? (1689): 53-60; Arcana ? (1695): 32, 33, 37, 39-41, 61-92; Continuatio Arcanorum ? (1697): 93-107. ¶ PROVENANCE: Pierre Amalric (1923-1999), born in Velour sur Agouti, France, studied medicine in Toulouse, after the WWII be mentored Professor Calmettes, a well-known ophthalmologist, becoming himself an ophthalmologist and through his career contributed some 670 articles. ?His main medical contributions were on choroidal circulation, the treatment of diabetic retinopathy, and a description of the Triangle Syndrome indicating choroidal infarction, which bears his name.? ? ?The Mystery of Heinrich Heine?s Neuro-Ocular Disease,? Historia Ophthalmologica Internationalis, 2015, 1: pp. 153-164 [published posthumously]. He was a member of l?Académie nationale de médecine, American Academy of Ophthalmology, de l?Académie de Médecine de Rome, Royal College of Ophthalmologists (London). He was also a very important rare book collector, owning a firs edition of Vesalius? Fabrica with hand coloring, etc. ¶ PROVENANCE: Pierre Lambert (1899-1969) was a Parisian bookseller [Catalogue de la librairie Pierre Lambert, Livres anciens et quelques livres modernes, Mars 1927]; he bequeathed his personal collection of Joris-Karl Huysmans to the Bibliothèque de l?Arsenal.

        De l'unité de l'Eglise, ou réfutation du système de M. Jurieu

      Chez Guillaume Desprez et Elie Josset, 1687. - Chez Guillaume Desprez et Elie Josset, àParis 1687, in - 12 (9x16cm), (16) 484pp. (2), relié. - Edition originale L'exemplaire est enrichi d'un envoi autographe de Pierre Nicole à M. Angran. Il présente en outre deux ajouts manuscrits (p 48 et 329), très probablement de la main de L'auteur. Reliure de l'époque en pleine basane mouchetée. Dos à cinq nerfs orné de caissons et fleurons dorés. Roulettes dorées sur les coupes et les coiffes. Toutes tranches mouchetées rouges. Deux petits trous de vers sur le dos, quelques autres sur les plats. Mors frottés et un peu fendus. Préalablement à la Révocation de l'édit de Nantes en 1685, la plupart des écrivains théologiens polémistes s'occupèrent de ruiner l'église protestante par de nombreuses oeuvres sur les points de doctrine qui séparaient l'église catholique et protestante. Les écrivains de Port - Royal, Arnault et Nicole essentiellement, se firent les héraults de l'église romaine, et on assista ainsi à des joutes théologiques avec des auteurs protestants qui se prolongèrent sur des années, notamment Pierre Jurieu. De l'unité de l'église se présente ainsi comme une réponse à l'ouvrage de Jurieu paru en 1686, Le vrai système de l'église, mais celui - ci était déjà une attaque et une critique d'un ouvrage de Pierre Nicole : Les prétendus réfomés convaincus de schisme. Chacun de ces livres, et il y en eut de nombreux, suit les mêmes procédés : une analyse systématique et paraphrastique de chaque chapitre du livre abhorré, chaque phrase etant décortiquée et retournée contre l'adversaire, les polémistes étant à l'affut de la moindre contradiction, de la moindre imprécision. Les thèses de chaque ouvrage se font donc par le défaut de ceux qu'ils critiquent, ainsi Jurieu dans Le vrai système de l'église induit du livre de Nicole que l'église romaine devrait être universelle en tant qu'église du Christ, mais constatant qu'elle ne l'est assurément pas, elle conduit nécessairement par son pouvoir arbitraire à la position schismatique des protestants. Chacun des ouvrages poursuit le même but, décrier l'adversaire, rendre à néant ses prétentions pour l'injurier alors en connaissance de cause, et ainsi par rebond détruire la cause religieuse qu'il défend. Pierre Nicole asseoit une nouvelle fois dans son nouveau livre, en assurant une critique continue de l'ouvrage précédent de Jurieu, qu'il ne peut y avoir qu'une église, et que seule l'église catholique est bien l'église de tous, ce qu'il prouve en citant à l'envi les pères de l'église. Au regard de l'histoire, il peut paraître ironique que les champions de la doctrine catholique furent issus de Port - Royal au XVIIe siècle, alors que l'ensemble des religieux furent chassés de l'abbaye dès 1709, et le lieu rasé en 1712...  Les envois autographes du XVIIème siècle sont, de nos jours, devenus très rares.   - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Édition originale. L'exemplaire est enrichi d'un envoi autographe de Pierre Nicole à son élève et ami M. [Louis] Angran.

Deux petits trous de vers sur le dos, quelques autres sur les plats. Mors frottés et un peu fendus. étiquette de bibliothèque encollée sur le contreplat.   Louis Angran (1622 - 1706), issu d'une famille importante de magistrats proches de Port - Royal, et qui entretenait quelque relation de parenté avec les Arnauld, fut l'élève de Pierre Nicole aux côtés de Jean Racine dans les « petites écoles » de Port - Royal - des - Champs. Licencié en théologie à la Sorbonne (1645), et chanoine de Troyes, Louis Angran fait partie, en 1653, de la députation janséniste, partie à Rome pour plaider la cause de l'Augustinus. C'est chez lui que Pierre Nicole, sous le pseudonyme de M. Rosny, loge lors de son séjour à Paris avec Antoine Arnauld. Louis Angran sera ensuite avec Nicole un des principaux acteurs de l'affaire Nordstrands, île dans laquelle les jansénistes placèrent les biens de Port - Royal par crainte des persécutions. Ce précieux envoi manuscrit témoigne de la fidèle amitié qui unit, leur vie durant, le maître et l'élève. Préalablement à la Révocation de l'édit de Nantes en 1685, la plupart des écrivains théologiens polémistes critiquèrent l'Église protestante sur les points de doctrine qui la séparaient de l'église catholique. Les écrivains de Port - Royal, Arnauld et Nicole essentiellement, se firent les hérauts de l'église romaine, et on assista ainsi à des joutes théologiques avec des auteurs protestants, notamment Pierre Jurieu, qui se prolongèrent durant des années. De l'unité de l'église se présente ainsi comme une réponse à l'ouvrage de Jurieu paru en 1686, Le Vrai Système de l'église, mais celui - ci était déjà une attaque des Prétendus réformés convaincus de schisme de Nicole. Chacun de ces livres, et il y en eut de nombreux, suit les mêmes procédés : une analyse systématique et paraphrastique de chaque chapitre du livre abhorré, les polémistes étant à l'affût de la moindre contradiction ou imprécision. Ainsi Jurieu dans Le Vrai Système de l'église induit - il du livre de Nicole que l'église romaine devrait être universelle en tant qu'église du Christ, mais constatant qu'elle ne l'est assurément pas, elle conduit par son pouvoir arbitraire à la position schismatique des protestants.

        PHILIPPI A LIMBORCH DE VERITATE RELIGIONIS CHRISTIANÆ: AMICA COLLATIO CUM ERUDITO JUDÆO [FIRST APPEARANCE URIEL ACOSTA]

      Gouda; Apud Justum Ab Hoeve, 1687. Contemporary Vellum. 4to. [18], 364, [14] pages. 25 cm. First edition. In Latin. De veritate religionis Christianae. A response to three treatises by Balthasar de Orobio, the texts of which are included. With first appearance of "Urielis Acosta Exemplar humanae vitae. Addita est Brevis refutatio argumentorum quibus Acosta omnem religionem revelatam impugnat, par Philippum a Limborch": p. [341] - 364. Written shortly before shooting himself, after his second excommunication, Uriel Acosta ?used the interval to write a few pages of what he called ?Exemplar Humanæ Vitæ? (A Specimen of Human Life) , a sketch of his own career. It is almost the only source of information respecting the life of this eccentric and unfortunate thinker, and was published with a refutation by Philip Limborch, a Dutch theologian, as an appendix to his own work, entitled ?Amica Collatio cum Erudito Judæo, ? Gouda, 1687; republished 1847.? (Jewish Encyclopedia 1906) ?De Castro's discussions on Christianity with the Dutch preacher Philipp von Limborch were published by the latter in the work entitled ?De Veritate Religionis Christianæ Amica Collatio cum Erudito Judæo, ? Amsterdam, 1687.? (1906 Jewish Encyclopedia) . From the library of Irving Levitas, with laid in letter from the bookseller Emil Offenbacher, addressed to him: ?First Edition. The larger part of the present volume consists of a discussion on the truth of the Christian religion between Philip Van Limborch, a Calvinist minister and professor at Amsterdam (1633 - 1712) and a learned Jew (Isaac Orobio de Castro, a contemporary adversary of Spinoza) . The book would be pretty much forgotten today had Limborch not added at the end an extraordinary human document, the autobiography of Uriel Acosta (1585 - 1640) which is printed here for the first time (pp.341 - 354: Exemplar humanae vitae) . Acosta, who was born into a Portuguese Marano family, moved to Amsterdam in 1617 where he resumed Judaism, but came soon in conflict with the Synagogue. He was excommunicated, recanted, again defied the authorities, was again excommunicated, and finally submitted to a public and humiliating penance after which he shot himself. Limborch has added an introduction to Acosta?s text, as well as a refutation, which is printed at the end. ? Subjects: Apologetics - Early works to 1800. Apologetics - History - 17th century. Judaism - Controversial literature. Filosofía cristiana. Apologetics. Orobio de Castro, Isaac, approximately 1617 - 1687. Vellum heavily soiled and warped. Outer edges heavily soiled, endpages somewhat soiled. All text crisp and clean, internally fresh; but outer portions of volume have ostensibly been waterdamaged, with heavy soiling and minor mold.

        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.

        A SERMON OCCASIONED BY THE EXECUTION OF A MAN FOUND GUILTY OF MURDER PREACHED AT BOSTON IN N.E. MARCH 11th 1685/6.

      Boston: Printed by R.P. Sold by J. Brunning book-seller, at his shop at the corner of the Prison-Lane next to the exchange, 1687. - [2],122 (of 124)pp. Lacks titlepage and final text leaf, supplied in expert facsimile. 12mo. Antique-style half calf and marbled boards. Light soiling and wear to edges of most leaves. Lower corner of K1 supplied in expert facsimile, lower portion of K2 torn without loss, lower corner of K3 supplied in expert facsimile. Overall a very presentable copy of a very rare book. The second edition, published the year after the first. This sermon by Increase Mather focuses on the text of Numbers 35:16, and concerns the executions of Joseph Johnson and James Morgan for murder. It also includes additional related sermons by Cotton Mather and Joshua Moodey, with separate titlepages but continuous pagination. "John Dunton, the adroit, quaint and entertaining London publisher and bookseller.landed at Boston at about the time of Morgan's execution, perhaps in time to witness it and to hear Increase Mather's sermon. In his LIFE AND ERRORS (pp.86-89, 96, 1818 edn.) Dunton says that Morgan 'was the only person executed in that country for near seven years.' So impressed was Dunton with the bookselling possibilities which the sermon and the event afforded, and so struck was he with the probity of 'Minheer Brunning' 'a Dutch bookseller from Holland' then established in Boston and upon whom he called, that he made Brunning (or Browning) his 'Partner in printing "Mr. Mather's Sermon, preached at the Execution of Morgan."'" - Holmes. The work very quickly ran into a second edition, demonstrating its popularity. Fewer than ten copies located in ESTC. EVANS 432. ESTC W19800. WING M1248. HOLMES, INCREASE MATHER 115-B.

        De spectris, lemuribus et magnis, atque insolitis fragoribus, variisque praesagitionibus, quae plerunque obitum hominum, magnas clades, mutationesque imperiorum praecedunt.

      Lugd. Batav.: Apud Jordanum Luchtmans 12mo (14.2 cm, 5.6"). [8] ff., 313, [1] pp., [3] ff.; 7 fold. plts.. 1687 One of the most famous Post-Reformation works on ghosts and spirits. Lavater, a Swiss Protestant theologian who rejected the Catholic conception of Purgatory, concluded that genuine ghosts were not wandering souls of the dead but rather good or evil angels who came from Heaven or Hell with their own agendas, though some seeming ghosts might actually be apparitions generated by a mad or melancholic mind ? or actual human-perpetrated frauds, of course. First printed in German in 1569 and in Latin in 1570, the work went through a number of editions in both languages as well as French and English translations. The present example is the sixth printing in Latin (stated fourth edition on the title-page), and Brunet describes it as one of the most sought-after editions overall. De spectris is => included in science and medical collections as one of the earliest works to discuss ghostly visions as potential hallucinations and delusions, and is often cited (in the form of its 16th-century English translation, Of Ghostes and Spirites Walking by Nyght) as critical reading for understanding => Shakespeare's ghosts. The volume is => illustrated with an engraved title-page and seven folding copperplates done by Romeyn de Hooghe. The illustrated title is suitably spooky, featuring a witch casting a ritual, surrounded by owls, scorpions, skeletons, a goat-creature, a pipe-smoking rat, a semi-naked broom rider, and a disconcertingly near-faceless, ruff- and cloak-wearing scarecrow. The seven engraved plates depict a variety of ghostly scenes that also reward careful scrutiny. Provenance: Front flyleaf with inked inscription of M. Tydeman, dated 1811 (possibly Dutch lawyer and professor Meinard Tydeman, b. 1741), and with older inked annotation regarding publication; front and rear pastedowns with small ticket of prominent bookseller and founding ABAA member William Salloch. Contemporary vellum, covers framed/panelled in blind with blind-tooled central stylized floral and foliate medallion, spine with early hand-inked title; vellum dust-soiled, particularly at upper edges and spine. Inscriptions, tickets as above; front pastedown with shadows of now largely erased pencilled annotations. Pages age-toned, with occasional instances of early inked underlining and Latin corrections; two leaves with small area torn from upper margin away from text. => A solid, crisp, attractive copy of a fascinating, influential treatise.

"8º, (141x98mm.); [16], 269 p., [2] white leaves; sign.: ¶-¶8, A-R8.- // Contemporary vellum binding, with tear to upper of spine label; pen annotation to title page erroneously dating the work as 1777; worm trace concentrated in gutter margin of pp. 13-18, affecting one letter on each page; moisture to right margin from pp. 255 to the end and short gallery, also in the right margin, at pp. 267-269.- // Prov.: Ex-libris contemporary handwritten in cover, in ink,  Pons .- // About Pierre Paul Billet, Pedro Pablo Billet, as this Madrid-based Parisian named himself, barely anything is known, other than what this sentence states. However, following the different editions successively modified of his grammar manual, we can deduce some additional information. In the first of them 'Arte para aprender facilmente a leer, escrivir y en poco tiempo hablar la lengua francesa', where he hid his name under his initials P.B., which was printed in Lyon in 1672(1), he said in the preface that he had been in Madrid for 8 years, so he must have arrived in Madrid in about 1664. However, in 1672, or perhaps the following year, he had to move to Zaragoza to publish this Arte, because in 1673 he published a new book there, already conceptualized and exposed as  Gramática (the  Grammar manual) and not as  Arte , with no mention of having published 'Arte' in Lyon(2). It is not possible to have any doubts about the authorship of both being the same, because in a eulogy to the author contained in the edition of Lyon, he is called Pedro, and because the structure and textual content of the first chapters of both works are by the same hand. In Zaragoza he was probably maintained or helped by Pedro de Guzmán, III Marquis of Montealegre, or by his wife, the III Countess of Villaumbrosa, not only because he dedicated to her both that 1673 edition of the Grammar and the translation of some memoirs, also printed in Zaragoza in 1677(3) but because Billet reappeared in Madrid in 1678, exactly the same year as the Marquis death. To support this hypothesis of his return we can also add that in 1708, in a 'Disertación sobre las gramáicas de Maunory y de Sobrino', included as an introduction to his 'Nouvelle grammaire espagnolle' Jean de Vayrac, critic of Maunory s and admirer of Billet, said about him (f. eii r),  he has been teaching French to the gentlemen of the Madrid court amid general applause for 40 years . Also, just before his reappearance in Madrid in 1678, he published what he called the second edition of Grammar in Brussels in 1677, the work we are offering here, for which he had completely reformed the second part of what had been published in Zaragoza  on the construction of sentences in French and increasing notably the repertoire of proverbs and usual educational formulae. Not satisfied, repeating the rapid succession that the editions of Lyon and Zaragoza experienced, in 1678 he published Grammar again, this time in Madrid(4), keeping the text contained in the edition of Brussels unchanged, but preceding it with a 'Disertación crítica contra el Arte de la lengua francesa publicado por Juan Pedro Jarón' and adding a novel third part dedicated to poetic art. Curiously the 'Dissertation' begins with a critique of the use of the word  Arte ( Art ), which he had used at the beginning of his career. Finally, the Madrid edition was reprinted in 1708, with no content changes other than the suppression of the criticism of Jarón. The grammatical contents of this edition have been studied in Denise Fischer:  La Gramática francesa de Pierre Paul Billet: contenús et méthode , en 'Documents pour l histoire du français langue étrangère ou seconde' 18 (1996): 213-223.- // (1) Por D.

        Vigessima relaçam historica, pertencente ao estado, successos, & progressos da Liga Sagrada contra Turcos: publicada nesta Corte de Lisboa a 12. de Ianeiro, do anno de 1687 .

      Lisbon, Na Officina de Miguel Deslandes, 1687. - 4°, disbound, in folding marbled cardboard case with calf label. Woodcut vignette of floral basket on title page. Woodcut initial. Overall in good to very good condition. 12 pp., 1 folding engraved map (30 x 38.5 cm.) signed "Duarte fecit." *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this compendium of reports regarding the latest news from the front lines of the war with the Ottoman Empire, as well as events in Venice, Greece, and Dalmatia. The Imperial army was facing the Turks at the border of modern Croatia and Hungary; among the events mentioned are the withdrawal of the Polish army to its headquarters, the loss of the fortresses of Sicklosch and Darda, and the attack on the Bridge of Esseck (Osijek) by the Imperial Army. The map depicts the bridge, the fortresses guarding either end, and the surrounding area, including two branches of the Darva River. The 8-kilometer-long wooden bridge at Osijek, built by Suleiman the Magnificent in 1566, was considered one of the wonders of the world. Osijek, in modern Croatia near the Hungarian border, became a Habsburg dominion on 29 September 1687, soon after the Imperial army decisively defeated the Turks at the Battle of Mohács (12 August 1687). Two commanders of the Imperial Army are mentioned: Charles, Duke of Lorraine, and Louis of Baden-Baden, Elector of Bavaria and Margrave.We suspect that this account was compiled slightly before the Battle of Mohacs, a crushing defeat for the Ottoman Empire. Although the locations mentioned are near Mohacs, and the bridge at Osijek played an important role in the battle, the descriptions seem to be of several skirmishes rather than a single battle. Also, a rumor is reported that Sultan Mehmed IV had been garrotted, and his younger brother Suleiman II had succeeded him. Suleiman did ascend to the throne in 1687, but Mehmed was not murdered, merely imprisoned. The Battle of Mohács occurred soon after Suleiman's ascension.Aside from events that occurred around Osijek and Darda, the account mentions Cossacks, emissaries from Muscovy, and the Crimean Tartars. From Venice comes news of victories in the Morea (Peloponnesian Peninsular) and fireworks planned in the Castello neighborhood to celebrate a change of rule in Naples.*** Arouca R327.

        Discours anatomiques sur la structure des visceres, sçavoir du foye, du cerveau, des reins, de la ratte, du polype du coeur, et des poulmons

      1687 - de (18), 374, (2) pages et 2 Paris, Laurent d'houry, 1687, in-12, de (18), 374, (2) pages et 2 planches, plein veau de l'époque, dos à 5 nerfs orné, tranches mouchetées (mors restaurés), Seconde édition française, peu courante, d'un des textes les plus importants du XVIIe siècle en cardiologie dû au fondateur de l'anatomie microscopique. Les éditions originales latines parurent respectivement en 1661 et en 1666 à Bologne. A partir de 1669 (date de la première édition anglaise), le De pulmonibus observationes anatomicae et le De viscerum structura exercitatio anatomica de Malpighi parurent ensemble, qu'ils soient traduits en anglais, en allemand ou en français. la première édition française fut publiée en 1683. À partir d'observations, réalisées à l'aide d'un microscope, sur le poumon d'une grenouille vivante, Malpighi décrivit pour la première fois les capillaires qui relient les artères aux veines. En cela, il complétait les travaux d'Harvey et fut le premier à prouver expérimentalement que le système cardio-vasculaire, la circulation sanguine, est un système clos dans lequel le sang circule. Cinq plus tard, ayant brillamment éprouvé sa méthode histologique, Malpighi publia une série d'observations anatomiques dans lesquelles il décrivait pour la première fois les glomérules rénaux (ce qui lui permit d'appuyer les théories iatromécaniques de Borelli), les pyramides de Malpighi, les globules rouges, etc. Les deux planches, intercalés après les feuillets préliminaires, représentent des coupes de poumon et les capillaires de Malpighi. Malgré de faibles mouillures sur 50 premiers feuillets, bon exemplaire, portant plusieurs ex-libris du XVIIe et du XVIIIe sur le faux-titre et la page de titre. Pour les éditions originales voir Norman 1427 ; Garrison & Morton, 535 et 760 ; et DSB, IX, p. 62-66. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Medicina mentis [et] Medicina corporis

      1687 - deux ouvrages en un volume, Amsterdam, Magnus & Rieuwertz, 1687, in-4, deux ouvrages en un volume, [8] ff, 224 pp. - [2] ff, 59 pp, [1] p, veau havane de l'époque, dos à nerfs et fleuronné, tranches mouchetées rouges, nom de l'auteur manuscrit sur le plat supérieur, PREMIÈRE ÉDITION de cette réunion du Medicina mentis et du Medicina corporis, oeuvres majeures du mathématicien, médecin et philosophe allemand postcartésien Ehrenfried Walter von Tschirnhaus (1651-1708). Rare. La seconde partie a son titre propre, à la date de 1686 : Medicina corporis seu cogitationes admodum probabiles de conservanda sanitate. Plusieurs figures gravées sur bois, et quelques unes sur cuivre, dans le texte de la première partie, La Medicina mentis, qui inclut les principaux travaux philosophiques et mathématiques de Tschirnhaus, invite, par une hygiène de la pensée, à faire un usage sain de la raison. Cet ouvrage eut une importance philosophique considérable à l'aube du siècle des Lumières et contribua à la renommée de son auteur. Tschirnhaus divise son travail en deux sections : la première expose "à quelle occasion et par quelle méthode [il a] trouvé la voie selon [lui] la meilleure de toutes celles que nous puissions prendre en cette vie, et qui consiste en la découverte de la vérité par nous-mêmes" ; la seconde permet de découvrir "de quelle manière l'on peut avancer toujours sans commettre d'erreur, en découvrant un nombre sans cesse croissant de vérités nouvelles". Sur le plan des mathématiques, en partant de l'idée que les êtres mathématiques sont formés par le mouvement rapporté à quelques chose de fixe, Tschirnhaus propose une génération nouvelle et universelle des courbes. Il fait une généralisation du mode de description des coniques au moyen de leurs foyers et divise les courbes en plusieurs genres. Ehrenfried Walter von Tschirnhaus (1651-1708), fut recommandé par Spinoza à Oldenburg en 1674, puis à Huygens et Leibniz par la suite. Il fut chargé d'enseigner les mathématiques à l'un des enfants de Colbert. Il fut également promu membre de l'académie des sciences en 1682. Exemplaire provenant de la bibliothèque de Jules Falret (1824-1902), avec ses cachets ex-libris : fils du célèbre alinéniste Jean-Pierre Falret, Jules Falret fut lui-même un très bon médecin, réputé. Il dirigea, à la suite de son père l'asile de Vanves. Charnières frottées, coiffes arasées, fentes aux mors, coins émoussés.

        ARTS ADVANCEMENT OR THE MOST EXACT, LINEAL, SWIFT, SHORT, AND EASY METHOD OF SHORT-HAND-WRITING HITHERTO EXTANT

      London: Printed for the Author, 1687. Third Edition, Corrected and Enlarged n. This is a surprisingly well-preserved copy of a handbook of shorthand symbols composed by the man considered the most important 17th century stenographer. William Mason (fl. 1672-1709; d. 1719?) issued three influential treatises on shorthand: the present work, first published in 1682, and the more romantically titled "A Pen Pluck'd from an Eagles Wing" (1672) and "La Plume Volante" ("The Flying Pen") of 1707. Developed over half a century, Mason's system used 423 characters, and words were written as they sound--a fact that makes it of interest to modern linguists for the light it can shed on 17th century English pronunciation. Because Mason's system was adapted by Thomas Gurney for use as the official shorthand of the criminal courts at the Old Bailey, his influence on stenography stretched into the 19th century. Mason's one-shilling publications both supplemented his income and promoted his services as an instructor of stenography; the title page here advertises lessons available at his "Writing School, the Hand and Pen in Grace-Church Street." It is easy to imagine this slim volume slipped into the pocket of one of his pupils, perhaps a clerk in the City of London or at the Inns of Court. Due to their ephemeral nature and heavy practical use, all editions of "Arts Advancement" are uncommon, and existing copies are often dilapidated.. 153 x 73 mm. (6 x 3"). 24 leaves, printed on one side and arranged as 12 openings. Third Edition, Corrected and Enlarged. Contemporary sprinkled sheepskin, blind-ruled covers, flat spine. ENTIRELY ENGRAVED by Ben Rhodes, with frontispiece portrait of the author, the text within decorative laurel leaf frames. Alston VIII, 147; Wing M-942. Small dent near tail of spine, lower corners rubbed to boards, extremities a bit worn, two small patches of lost leather to lower board, but the original insubstantial binding still solid and generally quite pleasing; one leaf with a couple of small ink marks, a few corner creases, otherwise A FINE COPY INTERNALLY, quite clean and fresh.

        De componendis gravium momentis dissertatio

      Angeli Bernabo 1687 - Rome: Angeli Bernabo, 1687. 4to, pp. [viii, including initial blank leaf], 14, [2, blank] (old shelf-mark on initial blank, small red ink-stamp on title). Contemporary vellum. FIRST EDITION, rare, of this treatise on the mechanics and theories of gravitation of Galileo and Torricelli. This work was part of the effort of the 'Galileans' centred on Borelli and Torricelli, and patronised by Queen Christina, to keep the spirit of the new science alive in the decades following Galileo’s condemnation and death. De componendis gravium is a reply to the Jesuit Giovanni Francesco Vanni’s Specimen de Momentis gravium (Rome, 1684). Vanni attempted to refute the Galilean-Torricellian proposition that the ratio of the components of the weights of a body on an inclined plane and the perpendicular is the same as that of the vertical height and the length of the inclined plane. Giordani demonstrates the correctness of the Galilean-Torricellian proposition by means of four theorems, in which he assumes the Galilean propositions about bodies falling under gravity. Giordani’s work was itself the subject of criticism from the Jesuits, to which he responded a year later in Fundamentum doctrinae motus gravium (Rome, 1688). Giordani (1633-1711) was born in Bitonto in the kingdom of Naples but fled to Venice in 1652 after having killed his brother-in-law. Having learned there of the fleet that Innocent X was preparing to move against the Ottomans, he went to Rome and enlisted. It was during his subsequent military life that he developed an interest in mathematics. From 1661 he devoted himself entirely to the study of mathematics, and established relationships with scholars such as Michelangelo Ricci and Giovanni Alfonso Borelli. In 1663 he was appointed mathematician to Queen Christina of Sweden, during her final stay in Rome. In 1667, a year after its foundation by Louis XIV, he became a lecturer in mathematics at the French Academy in Rome, and in 1685 he gained the chair of mathematics at the prestigious Sapienza University in Rome. In 1680 Giordano published his Euclide restituto which contains an important contribution to non-Euclidean geometry, the work for which he is best known today: he introduced the geometrical figure now known as a ‘Saccheri quadrilateral’, after its use by Girolamo Saccheri in his Euclides ab omni naevo vindicatus (Milan, 1733). Giordano met Leibniz in Rome when Leibniz stayed there during his journey through Italy in the years 1689–90. The two men exchanged letters on the Euclidean definition of a straight line.

        THE HISTORY OF THE MOST RENOWNED DON QUIXOTE OF MANCHA: And His Trust y Squire Sancho Pancha, Now Made English According to the Humour of Our Modern Language. And Adorned with Several Copper Plates

      London: Tho. Hodgkin (printer) Sold By John Newton, 1687. Full-Leather. Folio (11 5/8" x 7 1/2"). THE FIRST ILLUSTRATED EDITION IN ENGLISH; [18]616[i.e., 612]3; with errata at the end. Translated by John Phillips, with copper engraved frontispiece and 8 copper engraved plates, each with two illustrations. Contemporary paneled calf, expertly rebacked to style. The text is lightly toned, but overall, very good and clean. All edges are stained red. One plate with small loss to fore-edge, not affecting the illustrations; another plate with fore-edge trimmed, but not near the illustrations. Ggg3 with repaired tears; small ink smear on the Fourth Book title page. In all, a very good copy, complete and quite scarce as such. Don Quixote has stood the test of centuries; unquestionably, it stands as classic world literature. Cervantes brilliantly explores illusion and reality, as well as sanity and insanity. Let us quote Printing and the Mind of Man: "The first part of Don Quixote came out in 1605. What had begun as a simple satire on the tedious chivalric romances of the time broadened into a sweeping panorama of Spanish society; and it was this, the variety, the liveliness, and the gibes at the famous, which won it instant fame. The writing of the second part was stimulated by the publication of a spurious 'second part' in 1614; and it was an even greater success. There is less knockabout, and Cervantes had come to love and understand his two heroes, whom he had at first introduced to ridicule. He died on 23 April 1616, ironically, on the same day as Shakespeare." The last recorded sale of a complete first edition of Don Quixote, printed in Madrid in 1605/1615, occurred in 1989 and sold for $1.5 million.
