MAGNI. Cornelio
Galeazzo Rosati, 1688. (4) ff including half-title, 135 pp, plus engraved portrait and 6 plates of Athens. Bound in old red half linen over marbled boards. Scattered foxing to margins, otherwise a very good copy, pages clean and crisp. Extremely rare first edition of this account of Athens by the Italian adventurer Cornelio Magni, one of very few accounts of that city to appear in the early modern era and one of even fewer to give accurate, up to date eyewitness illustrations of its monuments. ¿After the fall of Constantinople in 1453 and the Turkish conquest of Greece a few years later, Athens, and the Acropolis in particular, became virtually inaccessible to foreigners. For inspiration and examples from the classical past, the architects of the Renaissance thus relied on Roman ruins, which, though regarded as mere imitations of the Greek originals, were readily visible throughout Europe¿ (Middleton, ¿The Early Exploration of Greece¿). Until the dawn of the 18th century, ¿classical Greek architecture was understood almost entirely on the basis of the writings of the first-century B. C. Roman architect Vitruvius¿it remained no more than a literary trope, for there was no real knowledge of the architecture of Greece.¿ Cornelio Magni was a member of a landmark expedition to Greece in 1674 led by the French ambassador Nointel. The present work deals specifically with the expedition¿s time in Athens and the surrounding area (including Marathon and several isolated monasteries). He includes detailed descriptions of each monument he encounters ¿ some of which, like the Temple of … [Click Below for Full Description]

Nicolas de Blegny, infatigable inventeur, décrit ici (chapitre VII) un "pessaire à ressort" dont il fut l'inventeur (cf. Garrison History of medicine p.275). In fine il annonce sur 11 pp. la création d'une "Infirmerie des voyageurs, pour les provinciaux, les estrangers, les négociants forains et généralement des personnes non domiciliées..." ¶ Dezeimeris I. 416 "Blegny est le premier qui joignant la pratique à la théorie, ait fait faire des progrès remarquables à l'art du bandagiste. C'est à lui qu'on doit les premiers bandages élastiques... il recommande l'emploi de plusieurs topiques, et entre autres l'emplâtre de Cabrières." - Kivatsy p.135 - Wellcome II.180.

First edition of three Denis Papin-papers in which he describes a pneumatic device to transport power and two papers of astronomer Kirch in which the Sceptrum Brandenburgicum is first described. "In the Acta Eruditorum of 1688 he exhibited a practicable plan, in which he exhausted the air from a set of engines or pumps by means of pumps situated at a long distance from the point of application of the power, and at the place where the prime mover - which was in this case a water-wheel - was erected." (Thurston, Robert Henry. A History Of The Growth Of The Steam-Engine, 2008, p. 49).In 1681 Papin published his invention of the "safety-valve", and in 1687 he outlined another invention, the transmission of power from one point to another, by means of an air-pump. "At this time Papin's interest in air pumps and steam pressure merged to provide an innovative solution to the widespread need for raising water. He considered first a piston ballistic pump using gunpowder, the idea for which he had earlier discussed with Huygens but claimed as his own (in a letter of 6 March 1704 to Leibniz).

Eusebius Pamphili (c. AD 260 - c. 340)
Cologne: Mauritii Georgii Weidmanni., 1688 Includes his LIBER CONTRA HIEROCLEM and ADVERSUS MARCELLUM ANCYRAE EIPSCOPUM. Two volumes. Folio. [viii], [1]-24p, [xii], [1]-548p, 196p, 82p (notes); [xvi], 856p, [xxiv]. Parallel texts in Greek and Latin. Bound in full period vellum with hand-lettered spine titles, 2nd volume with repair to cracked vellum on spine and joint. Moderate foxing to title page, else clean, minor soil to cover with bumped corners. Joint on 1st volume is cracked but still holding. Eusebius, Greek ecclesiastical historian, is known as the father of church history. "The apologetic writings of Eusebius are the Praeparatio Evangelica... and the Demonstratio Evangelica... They are both, but especially the former, a rich storehouse of information on antiquity, particularly on the philosophy and religion of the Greeks." (Seyffert. Dictionnary of Classical Antiquities. p. 231). "The Praeparatio evangelica ('preparation for the gospel'), in which he shows that the Greek tradition is inferior to the Hebrew and the best of Greek philosophy merely coincided with or was derived from biblical teaching, is incidentally valuable in that it includes many quotations from classical authors now lost." (Oxford Companion to Classical Literature. 1995. p. 227). SCARCE!!! Photos available upon request. Heavy volume.

PSELLI, Michaelis [Michael Psellus].
Sumptibus Joh. Sebastiani Richelii, Kiloni, [Kiel], 1688. Hardcover, 12mo (13 x 7.5 cms). Contemporary full vellum, [12] + 166 pp. Text in Latin and Greek on opposite pages. Includes index of authors cited; with head- and tail-piece. Footnotes. First seven words of title in Greek letters: (transcribed: Michaelou tou Psellou Peri energeias daimonon dialogos). Michael Constantine Psellus (1018 – 1178 C.E) was a monk, philosopher, politician and historian, widely considered to be one of the great writers and thinkers of the Byzantine era. Psellus was born in Constantinople (modern Istanbul) and served as an advisor to a number of emperors, as well as becoming the head Professor at the newly founded University of Constantinople, where he played a key role in the reintroduction of the study of Greek thought, particularly that of Plato. He wrote on a wide variety of subjects. His "De Operatione Daemonum," is basically a discourse on the nature and classification of demons, presented in the form of a dialogue between two individuals, Timothy and "a Thracian." Byzantine magical and hermetic works are often cited as having been the stepping stone between Greek thought and the development of Western Hermeticism during the Renaissance. Psellus' "De Operatione Daemonum" was an important work that was reprinted a number of times (mostly in Greek and Latin) following its first publication (in French translation) in 1576. It was considered of such importance that it was anthologised into several collections of hermetic texts, along with the works of Iamblichus, Proclus and Hermes Trismegi … [Click Below for Full Description]

LEÃO, Manuel de.
Brussels,, 18 August 1688. 4°, twentieth-century (second or third quarter) blind-tooled calf (slight wear), spine with raised bands in five compartments, two crimson leather lettering pieces in second and fourth compartments, gilt letter (title), edges sprinkled red from an earlier binding. Engraved title page with arms of the newly married couple, 2 putti holding banners, and two women labeled Galiope [sic] and Talia (see below). A few light stains; tiny wormhole in last 5 quires, touching one letter per page. Overall in very good to fine condition. Old signatures on title page, in upper (scored) and lower ("De Jozé Montrº Nayo") margins. Engraved title page, (4 ll., including errata on final verso), 328 pp. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION. This verse narrative describes the festivities - including illuminations, triumphal arches, bonfires and bullfights - celebrated in Lisbon upon the marriage of D. Pedro II (1648-1706) to Maria Sophia Isabella (1666-1699), daughter of Philipp Wilhelm of Neuburg, Count Palatine. In the prologue, the author notes that the royal nuptials can be better described by a poem than by a prose narrative: "Bem sey que as excelencias destes Regios Nupciais Elogios, mais erão Sugeito para as eloquencias de hum Poema, do que materia para as limitações de huma Rellação." (f. A3v). The 92 ramos give lengthy poetic descriptions of Maria Sophia's arrival in Lisbon, a day of bullfights (pp. 159-252), a fireworks display (pp. 253-290), and a second day of bullfights (pp. 291-328). Each section of the poem is preceded by a few lines in italic explaining the … [Click Below for Full Description]

1688. GARCILASO DE LA VEGA. The Royal Commentaries of Peru... Illustrated with sculptures. Written originally in Spanish, by the Inca Garcilasso de la Vega, and rendered into English, by Sir Paul Rycaut, Kt. viii, 1019, [9] pp. (pages 23-26 omitted in numbering). With an engraved portrait of the translator and 10 full-page engraved plates. Folio, bound in contemporary English mottled calf, spine gilt, recent red label. London: Miles Flesher for Jacob Tonson, 1688.|~| |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition in English. Garcilaso de la Vega's most important work, The Royal Commentaries of Peru, is a valuable source of information about the conquest of Peru and the lives and legends of the Inca. Garcilaso (1539-1617) was the son of the Spanish conqueror, Sebastian Garcilaso de la Vega y Vargas, who had married an Inca princess named Chimpa Ocllo, the grand-daughter of the great Tupac Yupanqui, the last of the Incas. "The Inca mother taught her son the language of the ancient inhabitants of Peru, and suggested to him the idea of writing a history of these people. For this purpose, Garcilaso travelled over the entire empire of the Incas, got as much information suitable for his purpose as he could gather from both the natives and the new colonists, and consulted the few remaining monuments of that race... As a historian of Peru and its people, Garcilaso enjoyed singular advantages, for his mother, an Inca princess and her relations told him everything concerning their ancestors, omitting nothing, as they considered him one of their race. On the other hand, his father, who was the Governor … [Click Below for Full Description]

VIVIANI, Vicenzo
Florence: Piero Matini, 1688. Hardcover. Very Good. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. 4to. [23 x 17 cm] (2) ff., 72 pp., including woodcut Medici arms on title. Bound in old cartonnage. Minor soiling to title, and paper flaw in lower right corner. Pale waterstain and minor foxing on a few leaves, otherwise a broad-margined, fresh copy. Rare first edition of the only published work on engineering by Galileo's last and most important disciple. Viviani (1622-1703) was appointed chief engineer of the Office of River Control by Cosimo III, who commissioned from Viviani a proposal for preventing the Arno river from further silting up and flooding. Viviani's response gives an interesting description of various hydraulic and engineering techniques as he calls for the construction of run-off channels, weirs, and training walls. He spends a good portion of his treatise on the discussion of different building materials, and advocates the use of relatively expensive woods such as oak and chestnut, arguing that, in the long run, they are more durable and ultimately cheaper. In his introduction Viviani outlines the consequences of the rising of the riverbed for the agriculture of the Florentine countryside and the economy of the city. * Cinti 159; Riccardi I.627.
