        Scoprimento del mondo umano di Lucio Agatone Prisco opera dell'abate D. Angelo Seravalli canonico regolare del salvatorc, composta sopra l'idea del mondo grandc, contenente gli amori dell'uomo con l'anima, e le relazioni di nuovo terre, mari, isole, citta e monarchic, formate secondo l'cssere delle passioni, costumi, affetti, virtu, e vizj umani

      Siena: Bonetti, 1696. Thick quarto, with an engraved frontispiece and full-page portrait of the author; intermittent water-staining, some gatherings a little stained, a few preliminary margins well renewed with old paper (no text loss), a few other small marginal defects but a good sound copy in recent vellum over boards. Rare and enigmatic imaginary voyage. Rare and enigmatic imaginary voyage filled with metaphysical allusion, long overlooked by scholars and bibliographers of the genre.This mysterious book is the work of the Augustinian priest Angelo Seravalli (1630-1708), who served as abbot of San Jacopo Soprano in Florence, where he was born and died. Aside from a little poetry his literary output is restricted to the present text, where he narrates a journey by himself and a mystical figure known as Lucio Agatone Prisco. In a vast narrative blending the real and the imaginary, Seravalli leads Prisco through the lands, oceans, cities and kingdoms of the world, explaining their nature and formation through human virtues and vices. As a result of the journey, Prisco achieves a spiritual enlightenment of sorts and proposes a vision for future peace on earth.Seravalli's ambitious literary project had little impact on his contemporaries (although it is mentioned in a handful of late seventeenth-century letters, including a correspondence from Italian bibliophile Antonio Magliabechi to the philosopher Leibniz dated 3 April 1696). Howgego notes (in his study of apocryphal voyage narratives published by Hordern House in 2013) 'It has since been largely ignored by scholars in the field of imaginary voyages, and no further discussion was found in the literature. The book is rare, only nine library copies being recorded worldwide.' Nonetheless, it provides modern readers with an engaging baroque allegory that combines real people, cities and events with mythological characters and esoteric lore - and this at a period when the Inquisition was active.'Prisco', the main character of the narrative is derived from an late medieval epitaph inscribed on the 'Pietra di Bologna', a stone plaque famous with alchemists and students of the esoteric arts. A mystical riddle of compounded contradictions, the epitaph has defied interpretation for centuries. In more recent times the 'Pietra di Bologna' was treated in detail by Carl Jung in his study of alchemy and the unconscious. Howgego gives a translation as follows: 'Aelia Laelia Crispis, neither male nor female, nor androgynous nor child, neither young nor old, nor chaste, nor whore, but all this together. Killed not by hunger nor by iron nor by poison, but all these things together. Neither in heaven nor in water, nor in earth, but everywhere he lies. Lucius Agatho Priscius, neither husband nor lover, nor relative, neither sad nor happy, nor crying, not pyramid, nor tomb, but all this together, knows and knows not to whom it is dedicated'.The book includes an ornate engraved frontispiece and a portrait of the author, both by Nicolas Dorigny. Of special interest are the woodcut capitals decorated with scenes of esoteric significance.

        De l'Incredulite, Ou l'on examine les Motifs & les Raisons generales qui portent les Incredules a rejetter [sic] la Religion Chretienne; Avec deux Lettres Ou l'on en prouve directement la Verite. Par Jean le Clerc.

      Amsterdam, Henri Wetstein, 1696.. In-8, plein velin grise de l'epoque, (1) f., (6), 376 p. Edition originale. Ne a Geneve en 1657 d'une famille liberale de refugies picards installes en Suisse, Jean Le Clerc s'installa a Amsterdam. Personnage central de la "Republique des Lettres", lecteur de Spinoza, savant a l'activite multiforme et impressionnante, il fut le temoin attentif et passionne de la vie culturelle de son temps. Il soumet dans cet ouvrage, "avec une etonnante loyaute intellectuelle", sa vision originale et novatrice d'un christianisme raisonnable, moral et non theologique. "Le Clerc considere le christianisme comme un regulateur social qui doit jouer un role majeur dans une societe marchande et industrieuse en pleine expansion, comme celle des Provinces-Unies, ou l'ambition, et le gout des affaires, des richesses et des plaisirs qu'ils procurent doivent etre temperes afin qu'ils ne conduisent pas a l'injustice sociale" (B Tambrun-Krasker, 'Jean Le Clerc ', 2010). (Cf. P. Verniere, 'Spinoza et la pensee francaise', p. 73 sq et passim et 'Libertinage et philosophie au XVIIe siecle: Protestants, heretiques, libertins', publie par A. McKenna et P.-Fr. Moreau). (Haag, 'France protestante', VI, p. 467, n°XXIV). Bon exemplaire, relie a l'epoque..

        G[othofredi]. G[uillelmi]. L[eibnitii]. Relatio ad inclytam Societatem Leopoldinam Naturae Curiosorum, de novo antidysenterico Americano magnis successibus comprobato

      Gothofredi Freytagii (Gottfried Freytag), Hannov. et Gurlpherpit (Hannover, Wolfenbütte 1696 - First edition. Papered spine. Printer's device on last page. 8º; (a)1-(b)8, (c)1-3 .; 37, (1) p. Scarce pharmacological work on the ipecacuanha root, that can be used as an emetic, nauseant, expectorant and diaphoretic. "Relatio ad inclytam Societatem Leopoldinam Naturae Curiosorum, de novo antidysenterico Americano magnis successibus comprobato" (Relation to the Illustrious Leopoldine Society of Naturalists Concerning the New American Anti-Dysentery Drug, Attested with Great Success) is Leibniz's most comprehensive and influential contribution to the history of medicine and pharmacy. Leibniz wrote the treatise after he read the study on ipecacuanha root written by Willem Piso and Georg Marggraf (published in Historia naturalis Brasilia [1648]) and evidently after conducted experiences with the root himself. The root was made famous after it was used successfully to treat the King of France, Louis XIV's dysentery in 1672 by the Dutch physician John Frederick Helvetius (1625-1719). The work has been published in the same year as an appendix to Martin Lister's "Sex exercitationes medicales de quibusdam morbis chronicis" (Frankfurt and Leipzig, 1696) and also to "Miscellanea curiosa, sive Ephemeridum medico-physicarum Germanicarum" (Nuremberg, 1696). Lister's work was printed by Freytag too, the difference is merely the lack of the colophon on the "Lister-edition". [Ref.: Smith, J. E. H.: Divine Machines. Leibniz and the Sciences of Life.

        Satire di Salvatore Rosa Dedicate a Settano

      Presso Severo Protomastix, Amsterdam 1696 - N.d. Circa 1690. 12mo. 160 pp. Woodcut ornament on title. (Brunet IV 1390. 12mo. Gamba 2071) Contemporary vellum. Front joint repaired. Slight separation of lower rear joint. Restoration to upper corner of leaf pp 93/4. P. 107 with awkwardly cut margin. Considerable toning especially around text, but overall fine other than issues mentioned. Rosa is best known as a landscape painter but he also in his lifetime has a considerable reputation as a poet. His eventful, picaresque, and now mythologized life centered at various times around Naples, Rome and Florence. As a champion of artistic freedom, Rosa rejected the then prevalent patronage system in the artworld. In the satires Rosa attacked aspects of the music and art scene, and the most famous of the satires, "La Babilonia", took daring swipes at the clergy, leading to its placement on the Vatican's Index of prohibited works.

WITH FINE GILT COATS OF ARMS AT THE CENTERS OF THE COVERS AND WITH A UNIQUE FOLIO PRESENTATION PAGE.<br> "The great original authority on Greece." Pausanias, probably a native of Lydia, lived in the second century A.D.--the time of Hadrian, Antoninus Pius and Marcus Aurelius--and his work takes the form of a tour in the Peloponnesus and in part of northern Greece. It has no formal preface or introduction, but begins suddenly with the promontory of Sunium, the first point in Greece that would be seen by the voyager from Turkey, and it ends abruptly with an anecdote of a blind man of Naupactus. While following a strictly topographical order, Pausanias provides historical backgrounds and gives descriptions of memorials, religious art and architecture, interesting superstitions and customs of the people, and occasional notes on the natural features of products of a region.<br> The accuracy of Pausanias&#39; descriptions has been borne out by the remains of the buildings he describes. The most dramatic example of this is a note regarding the Lion-gate and the existing circuit wall of the Acropolis at Mycenae, in which the author mentions some tombs "within the wall."
