      (Leipzig), Johann Friedrich Gleditsch, 1693.. . Dritte Auflage der interessanten und detailreichen Beschreibung der Reise, die Burnet nach der Thronbesteigung Jakobs I. und seiner Amtsenthebung unternommen hatte. Zur Zeit der Veröffentlichung dieses Buches war Burnet vertrauter Rat Wilhelms von Oranien, den er auch 1688 nach England begleitete. Nach der Absetzung Jakob II. und dessen Flucht nach Frankreich wurde Burnet 1689 Bischof von Salisbury. "... sehr bedeutendes Buch ... Seine Darstellung ist immer anregend zu lesen ... wir verdanken ihm eine ausgezeichnete Darstellung des Lebens in Rom. Daneben nehmen Bemerkungen über Kunst und Künstler den gebührenden Raum ein. Das Gesamtbild, das Burnet von Italien entwirft, ist alles andere als glänzend. Die Armut des Landes, die verödeten Städte ... veranlaßten ihn zu abfälligen Bemerkungen über das kirchliche Regime, dem er ... die Schuld an den meisten Mißständen gab. Aber gerade diese Einseitigkeit, immer verbunden mit ausgezeichneten Beobachtungen, trugen zusammen mit dem guten Stil und der gewandten Darstellung nicht wenig zur Beliebtheit des Buches bei" (Schudt, Italienreisen, S. 88f u. 403; kennt diese Ausgabe nicht, die Vorlage für den (Teil-)Nachdruck von 1922). Der umfangreiche "Anhang" enthält drei Briefe des Cornand de Lacroze; der bedeutsame dritte Brief behandelt die politischen Probleme der italienischen Staaten und besonders die Stellung Guastallas innerhalb des oberitalienischen Staatensystems. - Exlibris Breitenbauch. Titel verso mit gelöschtem Bibliotheksstempel. Gutes Exemplar. - VD17 3:607135P und 3:607137D.

      Amsterdam, v. Dahlen (d. i. Hamburg, Hertel), 1693.. . Erste deutsche Ausgabe eines der meistumstrittenen Werke der Zeit. Das bedeutendste Werk der Zeit zur Bekämpfung von Geisterglaube, Hexenwahn und Zauberei. Bekker wurde dadurch zum "Herold des Adämonismus" (ADB). "Bekker bestritt nicht nur den Glauben an die noch fortwaltenden dämonischen Mächte, an Teufelsbesitzungen, Zauberei, Magie usw., sondern suchte auch die biblischen Erzählungen von Besessenen natürlich zu erklären und die Existenz des Teufels überhaupt in ein zweifelhaftes Licht zu stellen" (Seebaß-Kistner). Das Buch wurde bei Erscheinen verdammt und gegen Bekker ein Prozess mit der Folge der Amtsenthebung eingeleitet. Diese erste deutsche Übersetzung stammt von Johann Lange.

        Het gezandtschap der Neerlandtsche Oost-Indische Compagnie, aan den grooten Tartarischen Cham, Den tegenwoordigen Keizer van China: waar in de gedenkwaerdigste geschiedenissen... beneffens een naauwkeurige Beschryvinge der Sineesche Steden, Dorpen, Regeering... Gewassen, Dieren...

      1693. Amsterdam, W. Waasberge, 1693. Folio (315 x 205mm). pp. (6), 208, 258, (9), with engraved frontispiece, engraved portrait of the author, 1 folding engraved map of China and 34 double-page engraved plates and about 100 engravings in the text. Contemporary calf, richly gilt ornamented spine in 7 compartments with red gilt lettered label (head of spine chipped). Third edition of this beautifully illustrated work on China. The first edition was published in 1665. "Jan Nieuhof was a "Dutch traveller and adventurer" (1618-72). Between 1640 and 1644 Nieuhof was serving as an official of the Dutch West India Company in Brazil, but by 1655 he was in Batavia, in Java, as a servant of the Dutch East India Company. From there he accompanied Pieter de Goyer as a member of the Dutch embassy to Peking... In 1665 Nieuhof published what is regarded as the definitive account of the Dutch embassy to Peking, and it is for that he is best known" (Howgego p. 752). The beautifully engraved plates show Chinese towns, Chinese life and animal- and plant life. The present work describes the first embassy of the Dutch East India Company to the court of the Emperor of China in the years 1655-57 in command of Pieter de Goyer and Jakob de Keyser. It is the most profusely illustrated work on China of the period. The Paolinxi plate mentioned in the index is only present in the Latin edition and is always lacking. A fine and clean copy. Landwehr, VOC, 539..

        Document signed ("Le Duc de Saint Simon").

      Paris, 21. II. 1693.. 1 half page on a single 4to leaf (242 x 180 mm).. Receipt to Jean Brunet, receiver at La Rochelle "de la somme de mille quarante livres qu'il nous a envoyee par une lettre de change tiree sur Claude Laquain banquier a Paris". The courtier and father of the renowned memoirist Saint-Simon signed this receipt at the very end of his long life, just over two months before his death, as is graphically displayed in his shaky signature. Saint-Simon had entered the service of Louis XIII in 1627 and rose to become a royal councillor. His lands were in the vicinity of La Rochelle, given him by royal grant after the fall of the Huguenot-dominated city in 1628. Although, by the end of his life, under Louis XIV he held little effective power in the royal court he maintained an unusual (even excessive) sense of the dignity and importance of his family, a state of mind doubtless bequeathed to his son. - Transverse fold; some light foxing. Provenance: Charavay, Paris.

Marmorierter brauner Kalbsledereinband auf fünf Bünden mit zweifacher Rahmung aus zusammen sechs verschieden Rollen (goldgeprägtes Rankenwerk, Blüten- und Lilienrolle) und doppelten Fileten, intarsiertes goldgeprägtes Rückenschildchen und reiche Rückenvergoldung, Steh- und florale Innenkantenvergoldung, marmorierte Vorsätze und gleichartige Schnittmarmorierung. Quer-Gr. Folio.. Erste Ausgabe des prachtvollen Ansichtenwerks von Schweden, vorliegend eines der wenigen Exemplare in Folio, hier in einem Meistereinband des schwedischen Buchbinders Gustaf Hedberg (1859-1920). - "Suecia antiqua enthält über 350 Kpfst. mit Ansichten von Städten, Häfen, Schlössern, bemerkenswerten Gebäuden, aber auch altnord. Stätten und Denkmälern aus Schweden und Finnland, zahlenmäßig konzentriert auf die mittelschwed. Regionen. Trotz der inhaltl. Vielfalt kann Suecia antiqua et hodierna v. a. als ein Denkmal für die ehrgeizigen Bauprojekte der Krone und des Adels nach den großen Kriegen bez. werden. Dahlberg hat die Projekte zum Teil nach noch nicht realisierten Plänen wiedergegeben, weshalb der dok. Wert der Stiche in einigen Fällen umstritten ist. In den Darst. einzelner Bauwerke und Gärten folgt er frz. und niederl. Mustern, während die Stadtansichten dem Vorbild Merians verpflichtet sind" (AKL). "Im ganzen eine kunstgeschichtliche Quelle von unschätzbarem Wert und außerdem eine ganz hervorragende künstlerische Leistung" (Thieme/B.). Das Werk wurde ohne Text veröffentlicht und ist wie vorliegend komplett. - Die ersten Exemplare des auf Kosten des Königs von Schweden gedruckten Werks wurden noch vom Königshaus selbst verschenkt; erst 1772 gelangte es in den Handel. Vorliegend eines der seltenen plano gebundenen Geschenkexemplare, für welche "die Tafeln vielfach in Papierumrahmungen montiert bzw. angerändert [wurden], um sie auf ein einheitliches Groß-Querfolio-Format zu bringen" (HH 100, 497 für ein anderes königl.

        Opus mago-cabbalisticum et theosophicum. Darinnen der Ursprung / Natur / Eigenschafften und Gebrauch / Des Saltzes, Schwefels Und Mercurii, In dreyen Theilen beschrieben... Deme noch beygefüget: Ein Tractätlein von der Göttlichen Weißheit; Und ein besonderer Anhang / Etlicher sehr rar- und kostbahrer Chymischer Piecen. Nunmehro das erstemal also zusammen zum Druck befördert Von einem Liebhaber Göttlicher und Natürlicher Geheimnüsse [d.i. Christoph Schütz]. Mit 15 (1 gefalt.) gest. Tafeln. Homburg vor der Höhe, Gedruckt bey J. Ph. Helwig, 1735. 4to. (21,1 x 17,4 cm). 4 Bl., 582 S., 11 Bl. Schlichter Pergamentband d. Zt.

      . . Erste vollständige Ausgabe, herausgegeben von dem radikalen Pietisten Christoph Schütz (1693-1750), der seit 1733 Kammerschreiber am Hof in Homburg gewesen ist. - Teil 1 "Vom Saltz" - nicht wie häufig falsch geschrieben Teil 2! - war bereits 1719 u. erneut 1729 von Samuel Richter (auch: Sincerus Renatus) gegen den Willen von Wellings publiziert worden. Hier erstmals gedruckt erscheinen die Teile 2 "Vom Schwefel" und 3 "Vom Mercurio", die von einer "Clavis operis. Das ist: Der Haupt-Schlüssel des gantzen Wercks" (S. 492-502) abgeschlossen werden. Diese fasst "seine wichtigsten naturphilosophischen und theosophischen Aussagen mittels graphischer Darstellungen noch einmal zusammen" (Jungmayr S. 38; hierzu die letzten 3 Tafeln). Es folgen weitere nicht von Welling stammende Texte u.a. von Chr. Schütz, Th. Hensings "Discurs von dem Stein der Weisen" u. Georg Riplaei "Lied von dem Neugebohrnen Chymischen König". Außerdem 3 Register: Autoren, biblische Sprüche u. Materien. - Petra Jungmayr faßt ihre Dissertation "Georg von Welling" (Stgt. 1990) zusammen: "Im Zuge dieser Untersuchungen stellte sich heraus, daß Wellings Gedankengänge von den Vorstellungen der 'Apokatastasis panton' und der Theosophie Jakob Böhmes geprägt worden sind. Auch ließ sich Franciscus Mercurius van Helmonts 'Paradoxal Discourse' als direkte Vorlage zum 'Opus' ermitteln, und es konnten Indizien dafür gefunden werden, daß Welling mit großer Wahrscheinlichkeit die Werke Johann Rudolph Glaubers kannte." (S. 116). - Der aus Kassel gebürtige Georg von Welling (1655-1727, nicht 1652!) führte ein bewegtes Leben, dessen wichtigste Stationen im Harzer u. Württembergischen Bergbau liegen, und das ihn an die Höfe nach Berlin, Stuttgart u. Durlach führte (Jungmayr S. 15ff.). Diese "chemisch-metallurgischen Erfahrungen Wellings spiegeln sich vornehmlich in der Beschreibung von Erzen und Mineralien wider" (ebda. S. 77). - "This learned work contains 15 fine Cabbalistic Plates, some of which Hargrave Jennings has reproduced in his work on the Rosicrucians" (Gardner S. 576). Jungmayr Nr. 3. - Ferguson II, S. 543. - Vgl. Slg. Bernus 571 (kollationsgleicher Nachdruck von 1760). - Rückengelenk angeplatz u. restauriert. Leicht gebräunt u. etwas stockfleckig. Wurmgang im breiten unteren Rand. Titel mit kleinem Abriß.

Joseph Moxon (1627-1700) was a London dealer and printer, specialising in mathematical books and instruments, a globe maker, amateur in the mechanical arts, hydrographer to Charles II providing maps and charts for royal use, and Fellow of the Royal Society, the first tradesman to be so elected. He produced the first English language dictionary devoted to mathematics. In his Mechanical Exercises he sets out to describe the chief trades of the day with illustrations of machinery, tools, furnaces, locks, plans etc. It is one of the earliest English books to describe and illustrate the tools of various trades and explain their uses.

        Some Thoughts Concerning Education

      London: Printed for A. and J. Churchill at the Black Swan in Pater-noster-row, 1693. 1st Edition . Hardcover. Near Fine. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. 8vo (171x107 mm), [8], 262, [2] pp. This issue with &#39;patronage&#39; correctly spelled on A3v. Contemporary full leather (hinges cracked but holding firmly by the cords, boards slightly bowed, but otherwise essentially without wear).The leaves are very clean and bright, with ample margins and clear print throughout. The final page is ever so slightly toned. A unusually well preserved copy, rarely found in such excellent state. ---- <br><br>Norman 1381, Wing L2762, Yolton 165, Pforzheimer 612. - First edition, second(?) issue. Some thoughts concerning education was hugely influential in its time, being published in at least 53 editions in the eighteenth century alone. Rousseau acknowledged Locke&#39;s influence and the book is now considered to be one of the earliest expressions of the principles of modern developmental psychology. <br><br>Based on letters written from Holland in 1684 to Locke&#39;s friend Edward Clarke, M.P. for Taunton, concerning Clarke&#39;s children (Locke was himself childless), it was published with the encouragement of Locke&#39;s disciple, William Molyneux, a widower with a son. It contains &#39;the seeds of modern developmental psychology&#39; (Norman), dealing both with a child&#39;s physical and moral needs, and advocating strictness in both. - <br><br>It is not quite clear what constitutes the first edition of this work. Attig notes that "two nearly identical versions were published in 1693; it is not clear whether these actually constitute distinct editions" (Attig 523). In one 1693 issue, the misspelling &#39;patronnage&#39; appears on line 19 of the verso of leaf A3. In the other issue, &#39;patronage&#39; is correctly spelled. Yolton&#39;s recent researches, published in 1998, have uncovered other textual first edition issue points (Yolton 165): the catchword "I my" at the bottom of the verso of leaf A2 and the misspelling "deferr" in line 3 of the same page, plus the correct numbering of page 29. "The English editions of Thoughts which appeared in Locke&#39;s lifetime were anonymous" (Christophersen, 57), although some foreign translations listed Locke as the author.

      nella Stamperia di Gio: Giacomo Komarek 1693-1700 In folio (mm. 405x272), 2 parti in 2 voll., p. pelle bazana settecentesca, sottili cornici dorate ai piatti (lievi abras.), dorso a cordoni con decoraz. e tit. oro su tassello, tagli rossi, 110; 127 cc.nn. di testo e tavole prospettiche incise in rame. - Primo volume: 1 frontesp. latino, 1 frontesp. italiano, 1 antiporta incisa, 1 c. con dedica a ?Leopoldo Austriaco Imperadore? in italiano, 1 c. con dedica in latino, 1 c. con ?Imprimatur? e ?Avvisi ai principianti?

Romani? in italiano, 2 cc. con dedica in tedesco, 1 seconda antiporta incisa, 1 c. di avviso al lettore in italiano, 1 c. di avviso al lettore in tedesco, 1 c. con Imprimatur, seguono 118 figure numerate, quasi tutte con testo bilingue a fronte, 1 c. di Indice in italiano, 1 c. di Indice in tedesco, 1 antiporta all?Appendice, l?Appendice con la ?Breve instruttione per dipingere a fresco? in italiano di 4 cc., e in tedesco di 4 cc. Le incisioni all?acquaforte sono di Vincenzo Mariotti, allievo dell?Autore. Importantissimo e fondamentale trattato per la storia della teoria della prospettiva, con le due parti provenienti da due diverse versioni ma "entrambe in prima edizione". La Prima parte appartiene alla versione bilingue latino-italiana (rispettivamente in caratteri corsivo e tondo) e la Seconda parte appartiene alla versione bilingue italiano-tedesco (entrambi in carattere tondo). Il lavoro del Pozzo fu sostanzialmente nuovo e originale, in quanto concepito per soddisfare le esigenze pratiche di architetti, scenografi e pittori, senza però mai allontanarsi dall?esattezza scientifica. In questo senso il libro segna un ritorno alla trattatistica di prospettiva da parte di ?operatori? artistici, che per quasi tutto il ?600 ne avevano praticamente lasciato il monopolio agli uomini di scienza. Nella prima parte dell?opera sono trattati i canoni basilari della materia e le regole fondamentali con la loro applicazione ai differenti ordini architettonici. Nella seconda parte il Pozzo descrive un procedimento originale per disegnare la prospettiva, applicato a cupole, altari, fontane, scale e a vari elementi architettonici. Il libro si conclude con la descrizione della tecnica dell?affresco, profondamente conosciuta e spesso utilizzata dal Pozzo. Il suo trattato è impostato in maniera estremamente differente da quello di un altro artista, Piero della Francesca, che nel suo ?De prospectiva pingendi? (concepito tra il 1472 e il 1475, ma pubblicato la prima volta solo nel 1841 a Parigi, per cura di Guglielmo Libri) cercò di enucleare i fondamenti matematici dell?arte e della pittura prospettica. Il Pozzo tentò invece di risolvere i teoremi geometrici connessi all?applicazione della prospettiva per definire una metodologia precisa, che fungesse da guida pratica ad architetti e pittori. L?impegno della prospettiva per realizzare illusioni ottiche che dilatassero e modificassero gli spazi fu una delle caratteristiche fondamentali del Pozzo pittore e architetto e per questo motivo fu attaccato dal Milizia nella sue ?Memorie degli architetti? (1781), nell?ambito di una più vasta critica al Barocco e al Rococò. La tecnica dell?illusione ottica fu utilizzata costantemente dal Pozzo in tutta la sua opera pittorica e architettonica, che si colloca ai vertici più alti del tardo Barocco. Dal 1702 egli visse in Austria e la sua attività fornì un contributo fondamentale alla nascita del rococò austriaco-tedesco. La sua opera pittorica più importante e significativa è l?affresco per la chiesa di S. Ignazio a Roma. Cfr. Studi e documenti d?architettura, n. 9-10 - Riccardi,I,317-318: ?Queste due parti furono più volte ristampate in Roma e furono tradotte in tedesco, francese e inglese - Berlin Kat.,4725 - Comolli,III,173: ?Ecco la miglior opera che abbiamo in questo genere.. Uscì per la prima volta in Roma nel 1693 e 1700 nella Stamperia del Komarek in due grandi tomi in folio..? - Fowler,251 - Cicognara,854 - Cat. n. 1 (1983) Libreria Archivolto, p. 68. Lievi arross. solo margin. a un vol., altrimenti esemplare su carta distinta ben conservato. Opera molto rara. "Andrea Pozzo, pittore, architetto e teorico della prospettiva (Trento 1642 - Vienna 1709). Lavorò dapprima a Milano, dove entrò nella Compagnia di Gesù, poi a Genova, a Venezia, nell?Emilia, a Mondovì e a Torino. Chiamato a Roma nel 1681, vi svolse un?inensa attività e vi compì il suo capolavoro: la grandiosa decorazione della tribuna e della volta di S. Ignazio, raffigurante la gloria del Santo (1685-91 ca.). Per invito di Leopoldo I si recò a Vienna nel 1703 e vi rimase sino alla morte. Somma dell?illusionismo barocco è il trattato teorico ?Prospectiva pictorum et architectorum? (1693-1702)". Così Diz. Treccani, IX, p. 716.

Contient également: La vie de Castruccio Castracani de Lucques ainsi que des recueils de relations de voyages diplomatiques Portrait de la France, Portrait de l'Allemagne. In 12 de [XXII] (incluant les errata), 453pp., 8 plans dépliants de positionnements militaires, [XII]-250-153-[5]pp., reliure en plein veau fauve de l'époque, dos à 4 nerfs ornés de frises dorées, caissons dorés ornés de fleurons dorés frottés, pièce de titre de maroquin rouge encadrée d'un double filet doré, petite gravure à chaque page de titre, ex-libris manuscrit avec date et petite tache sur la page de titre de la première partie, coin supérieur du deuxième plat frotté, tranches mouchetées de rouge, bel exemplaire. Nicolas Machiavel naquit à Florence en 1469 dans une famille noble, fils de Bernardo Machiavelli trésorier pontifical et docteur en Droit, et de Bartolomea de' Neri. Très jeune il étudia avec passion les historiens antiques, en particulier Tite-Live. Après la mort de Savonarole, brûlé sur la place de la Seigneurie en 1498, dont il fut un fervent opposant, il fut nommé secrétaire des Dieci, la seconde chancellerie. Il resta 14 ans à ce poste, ayant diverses missions diplomatiques en Italie, en France, et auprès de la cour impériale en Autriche. Durant cette période, il écrivit différents textes, tout d'abord ''Les relations diplomatiques" ainsi que différents rapports: "Rapport sur les choses de l'Allemagne" (1508-1512) et ''Rapports sur les choses de la France" en 1510. En 1503 il fut envoyé comme ambassadeur auprès de Cesare Borgia, il put ainsi assister à la cruauté et à la ruse avec laquelle ce dernier parvenait à se débarrasser de tous ses adversaires, opposants et ennemis. Il se lia d'amitié avec Piero Soderini qui fut nommé gonfalonier de Florence. C'est à cette époque qu'il s?occupa de l'armée florentine, la faisant passer d'un corps de mercenaires à une structure composée de conscrits émanant des citoyens de la ville. En 1512, suite au retour des Médicis au pouvoir, accusé d?avoir participé à la conjuration fomentée par Pier Paolo Boscoli, il fut arreté, torturé et emprisonné. Il se retira dans la campagne Toscane. En 1512, il commença à composer son oeuvre qui est considérée comme la plus importante: ''Discorsi sopra la prima Deca di Tito Livio" publiée posthume à Rome en 1531 par l'éditeur Antonio Blado. Il interrompit l'écriture sur la ''Décade'' pour écrire son oeuvre la plus connue ''Le Prince" qui fut publiée en 1513. A cette date il traduisit l'une des commédies de Térence ''Andria". En 1520 fut représentée son oeuvre théâtrale ''La Mandragola'', écrite en 1518. En 1521 il publia chez l'imprimeur Giunti à Florence ''L'arte della guerra", puis à la demande du Cardinal Jules de Médicis, il rédigea entre 1520 et 1526, les annales diplomatiques de Florence: ''Historie Fiorentine'', publiées par Antonio Blado en 1532. Enfin fut publiée à Florence en 1537 son autre oeuvre théâtrale importante "Clitia". Il fut très lié à Francesco Guicciardini qu'il avait connu à Carpi lorsque ce dernier était alors gouverneur de Modène. Machiavel décéda en 1527. Il fut le premier à élaborer L'Art de l'Etat comme une discipline propre, dotée de principes et de règles pas nécessairement liés à des valeurs éthiques et morales. Avec la lecture et l'étude des anciens, en actualisant les messages, il analyse sur un modèle empirique les passions qui sont à la base de l'action humaine et donc de l'Histoire. Malgré une condamnation de toutes ses oeuvres et une mise à l'index, ces dernières eurent une immense influence à travers les siècles sur de nombreuses cultures et diverses civilisations.

Raccolta rarissima che contiene 8 lettere di Galileo Galilei poco note. Volume primo: Lettera a Curzio Piacchena delle virtù di un pezzo di calamita di cinque libbre datata Padova 16 di Novembre 1607; Lettera a Francesco Rinuccini innalzando l'Ariosto sopra il Tasso datata Arcetri 19 Maggio 1640. Volume quarto: Lettera al Principe Federico Cesi Principe dell'Accademia de' Lincei di varie faccende letterarie datata dalle Selve li 5 di Gennaio 1612. Il Galilei, "rimettendosi alla determinazione di V.E. e degli altri Signori Lincei" propone come titolo della sua opera di prossima pubblicazione: "Historia e dimostrazioni intorno alle Macchie Solari e loro accidenti ."; Lettera al medesimo su le stesse materie datata dalle Selve li 25 di Gennaro 1612. Galilei scrive di mutazioni da apportare al testo "che davano fastidio al Revisore"; Lettera al detto Principe Cesi su l'istesso soggetto datata dalla Villa delle Selve li 12 Maggio 1612. In questa lettera Galilei tratta della pubblicazione del "Discorso intorno alle cose che stanno sull'acqua"; Lettera dello stesso al medesimo intorno alle Macchie Solari datata Firenze li 26 di Maggio 1612. Informa il Cesi del contenuto di una missiva inviata a Marco Velseri "dove vedera' accennata l'opinion mia .". Lettera del medesimo al detto Principe Cesi di bisogne astronomiche datata Firenze li 30 di Giugno 1612.

Queste lettere fino ad allora sconosciute e ripubblicate solo nel 1818 a Modena in "Memorie e lettere inedite finora o disperse di Galilei" (Cinti, 188) sono importanti per dirimere la controversia tra Galilei e Scheiner su chi avesse per primo studiato il fenomeno delle Macchie Solari. Il vol IV contiene inoltre altre quattro lettere di interesse galileiano: una di Mario Guiducci al medesimo Principe Cesi di faccenda letteraria ". ho preso per me il consiglio che V.E. dava al Sig. Galileo." riguardo "il torto che m'è stato fatto senza ragione da quel buon Sig. Grasso"; e tre di Francesco Stelluti tra cui una nella quale invia a Cesi un madrigale per un'opera di Galileo Galilei: le Macchie Solari.

        LUZ VERDADEYRA, E RECOPILADO EXAME DE TODA A CIRURGIA,

Officio, & Familiar delle, & do Tribunal da Relaçaõ desta Corte, Cavalleyro professo da Odem de Nosso Senhor JESU Christo. IMPRESSO TERCEIRA VEZ A CUSTA DO DOUTOR IGNACIO LOPES DE MOURA. LISBOA. NA OFFICINA DE JOAÕ GALRAÕ. ANNO M.DC.XCIII. [1693] In fólio de 28,5x19 cm. Com [xii], [xxii] pags. Encadernação da época inteira de pele, cansada. Exemplar com leves manchas de humidade marginais nas últimas folhas. Folha de rosto impressa a duas cores. Obra muito rara, Inocêncio e os seus continuadores não registam esta terceira edição, apenas a primeira de 1670 e outras posteriores Inocêncio I, 142. ?Quanto ao merito do auctor, reproduzirei aqui o que a seu respeito diz um critico da mesma profissão, e que parece falar com imparcialidade e conhecimento da materia. «A. Ferreira deve fazer gloriosa epocha nos annaes da Cirurgia universal, e muito particularmente nos da do nosso Reino, como illustre, sabio, e consumado pratico. Ainda hoje se admiram os seus grandes talentos na sua obra Luz verdadeira etc., que por suas qualidades theorico praticas e pela universal aceitação com que foi recebida, fez esquecer o livro de Cruz, e os de outros hespanhoes que então corriam entre os portuguezes, ficando o Ferreira em tudo e por tudo superior e apreciavel, mesmo em toda a Hespanha. E se a obra tivesse sido escripta em latim, a sua capacidade seria sem duvida mais reverenciada e universalmente conhecida. A cada passo se manifesta não só a varia e vasta erudição de seu auctor, pelo conhecimento das doutrinas de todos os outros estrangeiros que a cada passo cita, mas a infinidade de pensamentos proprios e uteis que se deixam conhecer nos logares onde não usa d?aquellas auctoridades.» Extrahido de Manuel de Sá Mattos, na sua Bibl. Elementar Ciruryica Anatomica, Discurso 3.° pag. 63.? Location/localizacao: 3-A5-B-4

Opera divisa in tre libri ove l' autore non si stanca di condannare l'insana quanto diffusa abitudine del duello e le sue irrimediabili conseguenze. Ma egli certamente non si limitava a dissuadere la barbara usanza ma cita in dettaglio, nel secondo e terzo libro, numerosi casi in cui il lettore può ravvisare un caso simile al suo e trarre dunque un suggerimento su come affrontarlo e derimerlo cavallerescamente senza spargimenti di sangue.

        The Rule and Exercises of Holy Livingand The Rule and Exercises of Holy Dying

      London - Luke Meredith, 1693 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A scarce and early edition of this instructional text, on how to live, and how to prepare for death piously. Sixteenth edition. Collective title of two books of Christian devotion which are described the means and instruments of obtaining every vertue, and the remedies against every vice, and considerations serving to the resisting all temptations. , Together with prayers containing the whole duty of a Christian, and the parts of devotion fitted to all occasions, and furnished for all necessities. Featuring two folding plates, and a frontispiecetoThe Exercises of Holy Dying. However, the last leaf of the text ismissing. The two books represent one of the high points of English prose during the period of the early Stuarts. According to historian Nancy Lee Beaty (1970, The Craft of Dying: A Study in the Literary Tradition of the Ars Moriendi in England), Holy Dying was the artistic climax of a consolatory death literature tradition that had begun with Ars moriendi in the 15th century. Holy Living is designed to instruct the reader in living a virtuous life, increasing personal piety, and avoiding temptations. Holy Dying is meant to instruct the reader in the means and instruments of preparing for a blessed death. Each book contains discussions of theology, moral instruction, often prefaced as The Consideration reduc&#39;d to practise, and model prayers requesting divine assistance in achieving them. Jeremy Taylor was a cleric in the Church of England who achieved fame as an author during the Protectorate of Oliver Cromwell. He is sometimes known as the Shakespeare of Divines for his poetic style of expression and was often presented as a model of prose writing. He is remembered in the Church of England&#39;s calendar of saints with a Lesser Festival on 13 August. aylor&#39;s work was much admired by John Wesley, the founder of Methodism, for its devotional quality; and by Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Thomas de Quincey, and Edmund Gosse for its literary qualities. Condition: In original calf binding. Externally, a trifle rubbed with wear to extremities, and loss to the spine. Both hinges are tender. Internally, generally firmly bound, aside from the loss of endpapers, and last leaf of text. Instances of light spotting, some light marginal tide marks,and handling marks. Slight loss to the title page. Ink inscription, and bookplate to the front pastedown. Rear pastedown is absent. Overall: GOOD..
