Florencia, Francisco de
En Sevilla: Por Thomas Lopez de Haro, 1692. 4to (20 cm; 7.75"). [7 of 8] ff., 194 pp., [2 of 3] ff., wanting one leaf of preliminaries and final blank. First edition. This major history of the Apparition of Archangel Saint Michael to the Indian Diego Lararo de San Francisco in the region of Santa Maria Nativitas, province of Tlaxcala, in the Spring of 1613, is from the pen of a noted Jesuit author who has the distinction of being the earliest known Florida-born author. Florencia (1619–95) entered the => Jesuit Order in 1642 and was a noted preacher and highly regarded author. In addition to recounting the story of the apparition, the author compares and contrasts it with apparition of Virgin of Guadalupe and Nuestra Senora de Remedios and he does the same for the Indians who experienced the apparitions. Additionally he tells of the shrine constructed for St. Michael, the religious art that was created for the shrine, and, of course, he studies the miracles attributed to the holy spot and its well and assesses the reliability of the testimony asserting the miracles. In a later part of the volume Florencia chronicles the springing up in other parts of New Spain of shrines to St. Michael. The work ends with the antiphony and prayers used at the shrine in Tlaxcala and with the novena to St. Michael and an explanation of the same. The work is in Spanish but => there is a passage in Nahuatl on p. 199. Provenance: Late 19th-century ownership stamps of A. Gonzalez Nunez, two partially inked over or partially erased. There is bad cataloguing relating to this work. An edition wa … [Click Below for Full Description]

43 folding engraved plates. 8 p.l., 301, [1] pp., one leaf of ads. 4to, attractive modern crushed morocco (minor browning), double gilt fillet round sides, spine gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine, a.e.g. London: B. Tooke, 1692. First edition and a lovely copy of the first treatise on optics published in English. This was for many years the standard work in Britain. "It was intended as a complete and clear account of current optical knowledge independent of any hypotheses concerning the nature of light. Appended to it was Halley's famous theorem for finding the foci of lenses. A popular text, it was reprinted in 1709 and provided a scientific base for Berkeley's Essay Towards a New Theory of Vision. The book was widely distributed, and Molyneux personally sent copies to Newton, Halley, Locke, Hooke, Boyle, Flamsteed, and Huygens. Its publication ended his friendship with Flamsteed, who, according to Molyneux, took umbrage at the lack of prominence accorded his work... "In the dedicatory epistle, Molyneux lavishly praised Locke's Essay Concerning Human Understanding; Locke's letter thanking him initiated a lengthy correspondence that was ended only by Molyneux's death in 1698."-D.S.B., IX, p. 465. "The first part presented 59 propositions on geometrical optics, providing a thorough treatment of the nature of sight and the properties of lenses, telescopes, microscopes, and magic lanterns. The second part consisted of a series of chapters on topics including refraction and light, glasses for defective eyes, and telescopic instruments. In treating re … [Click Below for Full Description]

Vincenzo Maria Coronelli (August 16, 1650 - December 9, 1718) was a Franciscan monk, an Italian cosmographer, publisher and encyclopedist known in particular for his globes. Born in Venice, Coronelli became a Minorite Friar and doctor of Theology at the Collegium San Bonaventura in Rome. In 1678 Coronelli created two globes for the Duke of Parma. These globes had a diameter of c. 175cm and were finely crafted. This drew the attention of the French ambassador, César d'Estrées, who subsequently invited Coronelli to Paris. Coronelli moved to the French capital in 1681, where he lived for two years. Coronelli was commissioned by the cardinal d'Estrées to produce two globes, one of the earth, the other of the heavens, for king Louis XIV.

[FALCONER, JOHN]. - [FIRST PRACTICAL CRYPTOLOGY IN ENGLISH - FREEMASON PROVENANCE]
London, Dan. Brown, 1692. Small8vo. Bound in nice contemporary full calf. Blindtooled decorations on covers in Cambridge-style, "mirror-binding". Four raised bands and red leather title label to spine with gilt lettering. Hinges with a bit of wear. Ex-libris pasted on to pasted down front free end-paper ("Deus Meumque Jus - Supreme Council 33" - i.e. THE HIGHEST DEGREE OF FREEMASONRY). Minor soiling throughout, otherwise fine and clean. An very nice copy in a contemporary binding, printed on good paper. The work, most copies of which seem to have been frequently used by its owners, is almost never seen in such nice condition. (12), 180 pp.. Seemingly the title-issue of the first edition of this rare work on cryptography, with the most interesting provenance of the highest authority of the masonic order of the Scottish rite. The work constitutes the second English publication on the subject but the first work containing practical information. It seems to present the earliest illustration of keyed columnar transposition. "The second English book on the subject excelled, and its high quality is all the more surprising when one considers that John Falconer had written Cryptomenysis Patefacta in France some thirty years before its first publication in 1685." (Leeuw, The History of Information Security, p. 303).The first edition (1685) was published under the somewhat obscure title "Cryptomenysis Patefacta". In 1692 the work appears under the present title, "Rules for Explaining and Decyphering all Manner of Secret Writing", stating more obviously the subject of the work.

BOYLE, R(OBERT). - [BOYLE'S MEDICAL EXPERIMENTS - CONTAINING HIS OWN REMEDIES]
London, for Sam. Smith, 1692. 12mo. Beautiful cont. full Cambridge-style binding. All edges of boards gilt and inner blindstamped dentelles. Front hinge a bit weak, and corners a bit bumped. A nice and clean copy. (10), 11, (1), 88, (2), 17 (being Catalogue of the Philosophical Books and Tracts), (1) pp.. The very rare (presumably) second (perhaps first) edition of Boyle's only entirely medical work, being without doubt the first edition under this title and the first edition to contain both parts. "We have it on the authority of Birch (No. 380, p. 262) that Boyle published a little duodecimo in 1688 under the title "Receipts sent to a Friend in America", containing five decads of "Choise remidies". The original has not yet been seen, but its existence is implied in the first sub-title - "The latter Five Decads being a Second Part" - and also in the Catalogue of 1692 described below (No. 179). The work passed eventually into three volumes and through many editions. The first two volumes, unbelievable though it may seem, are certainly written by Boyle, but the third volume, which did not appear until 1694, has many of the earmarks of a forgery... There are numerous statements in this astonishing collection of nostrums which might well shatter one's confidence in Boyle's judgment, but in charity it is perhaps better to look upon them as a commentary on the state of medicine in the seventeenth century rather than as an indictment of a high-minded seeker after truth. One should perhaps forget that he warmly recommended Paracelsus' receipt of pulverized human dung for sore eyes … [Click Below for Full Description]

FABER, BASILIUS
sumtibus Johannis Friderici Gleditsch Lipsiae: sumtibus Johannis Friderici Gleditsch. 1692. Folio, 12 p.l., 2934 columns (thus paged), [92] leaves; engraved pictorial title-p., vignette title-p. printed in red and black; text in double column; woodcut head-pieces and initials; full contemporary Dutch vellum, blindstamped panel and arabesques on both covers, spine in 7 compartments, manuscript lettering in 1; front joint cracked, vellum soiled; good and sound. Basil Faber (1520–1576), Lutheran schoolmaster and theologian, was born at Zary in 1520. In 1538 he entered the University of Wittenberg, studying as pauper gratis under Philipp Melanchthon. Choosing the schoolmaster's profession, he became successively rector of the schools at Nordhausen, Tennstadt (1555), Magdeburg (1557) and Quedlinburg (1560). From this last post he was removed in December 1570 as a crypto-Calvinist. In 1571 he was appointed to the Rathsgymnasium at Erfurt, not as rector, but as director. In this situation he remained till his death in 1575 or 1576. His translation of the first twenty-five chapters of Luther's commentary on Genesis was published in 1557; in other ways he promoted the spread of Lutheran views. He was a contributor to the first four of the Magdeburg Centuries. He is best known by his Thesaurus eruditionis scholasticae (1571; last edition, improved by J. H. Leich, 1749, folio, 2 vols.); this was followed by his Libellus de disciplina scholastica (1572).

This is the first large-paper copy I have come across.Father Du Molinet (ca 1620-1687) writes in the preface that he sought to assemble rare and curious objects of interest to the sciences and history, both ancient and natural. He then goes on to describe the contents of the various components of the 'cabinet'. His collection was enlarged by the acquisition of the major part of Fabri de Peiresc's collection.The first part of the work is devoted to antiquities: Christian, Egyptian and Roman; funerary objects; weights and measures; coins; medals; engraved gems; talismans and seals (including a section on Gnostic seals); and lamps.The second part is devoted to natural history objects, divided amongst birds; animals; fish; fruits; plants; shells; stones; and minerals.'The arrangement of the collection is carefully described by du Molinet.

"At the age of 70 Viviani, afflicted by numerous ills contracted in the countryside where he had been sent by his masters, housebound, turned to the many papers in his Geometric Exercises.
