Front hinge weak but still attached to the binding, text block tight and solid. Meditations on First Philosophy (subtitled In which the existence of God and the immortality of the soul are demonstrated) is a philosophical treatise by René Descartes first published in 1641 (in Latin). The book is made up of six meditations, in which Descartes first discards all belief in things that are not absolutely certain, and then tries to establish what can be known for sure. He wrote the meditations as if he had meditated for six days: each meditation refers to the last one as "yesterday" (In fact, Descartes began work on the Meditations in 1639) One of the most influential philosophical texts ever written, it is widely read to this day.

SIDNEY, Algernon.
London: printed, and are to be sold by the Booksellers of London and Westminster, 1698. London: printed, and are to be sold by the Booksellers of London and Westminster,, 1698. Published from an Original Manuscript of the Author. Folio (319 x 207 mm). Contemporary panelled calf, recent red morocco label to style. Bookseller's ticket and library plate to pastedown. Discreetly refurbished, with repairs to spine ends, joints, and extremities. Title page lightly foxed and chipped at corners, occasional light spotting and the odd stain. A very good copy. First edition of this major text of republican theory written between 1681 and 1683 and originally circulated as a manuscript. "Although long and sometimes repetitive the Discourses places Sidney alongside Milton as the master of republican eloquence. It is the power of its prose, as much as any aspect of its content, which helps to account for the work's exceptional subsequent impact in Britain, continental Europe, and America. Polemically a refutation of Sir Robert Filmer's Patriarcha (1680), the practical purpose of the Discourses is again to argue for armed resistance to oppression... for subsequent influence in Enlightenment Britain, America, the United Provinces, Germany, and France, he had no seventeenth-century rival except John Locke" (ODNB). "Sidney was executed in 1683 for complicity in the Rye House Plot, his papers, including the [unpublished] Discourses, being used against him. The indictment cited sentences saying that the king is subject to law, is responsible to the people, and may be deposed, as a 'false, sed … [Click Below for Full Description]

[FLOYER, JOHN]
London: Richard Wilkins at the King's Head, 1698. FIRST EDITION. A long dedication to Dr. Phineas Fowke is followed by two sections "to the reader," the second of which details the "several species of the asthmas." Contemporary calf, rebacked (in 1939), spine label; minor spotting, otherwise a very nice copy. From the library of Burnes Floyer of Lichfield, a descendant of the author, with his signature on the first blank, and the bookplates of Hyman Miller M.D. and Kenneth Garth Huston Jr. First edition of the first clear description of bronchial asthma. It is the first major monograph on the subject in English. Floyer clearly defines asthma, separating it from other pulmonary disorders. In this work, he discusses the influence of heredity in asthma and includes an early description of emphysema. According to Sakula's article on Floyer's book published in Thorax (Vol. 39, no. 4, 1984), "he [Floyer] considered that the cause of the dyspnoea was bronchial constriction due to spasm, and he regarded the spasm to be tonic, more akin to catalepsy than to the clonic convulsion of epilepsy." Floyer (1649-1734), an eminent physician at Lichfield, is noted for his many contributions to medicine. One of the most eccentric physicians of his time, his works show great independence of thought as well as a true spirit of research. Floyer suffered from asthma for many years and often made himself a subject for investigation during his research into asthma.

Item #43609 Colbatch, eventually a respected & well-do physician, began his medical career as an apothecary apprentice, who developed his own 'cure', "his proprietary Vulnerary Powder and Tincture of the Sulphur of Venus, which he claimed to have found empirically through his own studies, chemical experiments, and other experiments on dogs and other animals." His colleagues were skeptical, but Colbatch perserved, building a bit of a following, such that in 1696, he was able to sell off his secrets to his publisher, Daniel Brown, who made and marketed the medicines. "During the summer he began the process of gaining the licence of the Royal College of Physicians, and on 14 and 23 August, and 11 September 1696, he underwent the formal examinations in physiology, pathology, and therapeutics. He was admitted as a licentiate on 22 December … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hardcover. 8vo (8's), 18.5cm, 299,355pp., with 1 (of 2) frontispiece, 6 folding plates, 1 (of 2) folding maps (missing map supplied in facsimile), rebound in quarter tan calf, raised bands, gilt title on brown crushed morocco label, in matching slipcase with calf foredges and marbled edges, in fine condition. (cgc) This work forms one of the most important volumes in the early history of North America. Lande 423, CF Dionne II 249, TPL 85. Following the discovery of the Mississippi by Marquei and Joliet, La Salle set out in 1678 to open up this fertile basin. The chronicler of his expedition was Father Louis Hennepin, who explored the upper reaches of the Mississippi while La Salle was retracing his way to raise funds for renewing his voyage, after its disastrous experience on the Illinois River. Hennepin may have touched the site of the future city of Minneapolis. His work forms one of the most important volumes in the early history of North America. He lived for eleven years on this continent and penetrated farther into the then unknown interior than anyone before him. He was the discoverer and explorer of the upper reaches of the Mississippi and the first to describe Niagara Falls, exaggerating their height, however to above 600 feet. He tells of the building of the new Fort Crevecoeur which was named by the Indians Checagou (Chicago), describes Fort Frontenac and the Great Lakes, recounts the travels and death of La Salle and the Capture of Quebec by the Englis … [Click Below for Full Description]

Legatura coeva in pergamena con nervi e titolo ms. al ds. (minuscole mancanze ai margini inferiori dei piatti). Un timbro a secco ed una dedica sulla carta di guardia libera anteriore. Timbretto araldico al frontis. Carte ingiallite, ma ottimo esemplare. Raro. Il Bulifon iniziò a pubblicare nel 1693 la raccolta di lettere terminata nel 1698 con questo quarto volume che, in ragione del suo contenuto, rappresenta la parte più interessante dell’intera sua opera. In questo libro sono infatti pubblicate sei lettere di Galileo Galilei fino ad allora non conosciute. Tra l’altro queste lettere, riguardando anche il tema delle macchie solari, sono particolarmente importanti perché esisteva una controversia con Scheiner su chi avesse studiato per primo questo fenomeno.

Bound in modern leather with raised bands, gilted leather spine label and new endpapers. THE FIRST DEPICTION OF NIAGARA FALLS Second English edition, considered typographically superior to the first, and first published in French in 1697. Two English editions were printed in 1698, this edition is has the first line of the printers on the title-page ending in "Tonson", and has alterations to the page numbers on the plates. An important but much decried account of Hennepin's travels in what is now the United States and Canada, including his probably fictitious description of his voyage down, and up, the Mississippi. One of the two plates is the first depiction of the Niagara Falls. Hennepin made two voyages to the New World, the first was on the same boat as the explorer René-Robert Cavalier de La Salle, arriving in Quebec in 1675. The following year he traveled to Fort Frontenac (now Kingston) on Lake Ontario and helped establish a mission there. In 1678 Hennepin was reassigned to Quebec and in November of that year accompanied La Salle on his exploration into the Great Lakes region. Hennepin accompanied Accault on an exploratory expedition of the Mississippi valley, and was taken prisoner by the Sioux. Rescued in 1681 by a small party of French explorers led by Daniel Greylsolon, sieur du Lhut, he returned to France and published an account of his adventures as … [Click Below for Full Description]

PHAEDRUS
1698. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. "Things are not always what they seem; the first appearance deceives many; the intelligence of a few perceives what has been carefully hidden." - Phaedrus Phaedrus was a 1st-century fabulist and Roman poet known for his five books of verse fables. Many of his tales are adaptions of Aesop's famous tales, but he does include his own new stories as well. One major difference between Aesop and Phaedrus, however, is Phaedrus's treatment of the moral. Phaedrus emphasized the moral of the story much more than Aesop did. This edition of Phaedrus's Fables contains the commentary of Guidius, Ritterhusius, and Rigaltius. It also is considered to be widely accepted as a useful and correct edition, but it did not break new ground in the 'fable style'. It was edited by Petrus Burmannus (Peter Burmann), a professor at Utrecht. His editions of Greek and Roman classics have all been considered acceptable to other intellects. In Burmannus's preface he tells the reader, "the basis for this edition was laid by the German collector of Greek and Latin manuscripts Gudius". Moss claims this edition to be "held in considerable estimation" and is indeed a success. It was found to be reprinted and reissued several times during the next century. A fine woodcut frontispiece by Tiedeman and Mulder, which depicts Phaedrus writing while he listens to the Muse, in the background is Aesop surrounded by his fable animals.

RALEIGH, Sir Walter
1698. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Sir Walter Raleigh, a 16th-century English explorer and writer, is most known for his South American voyage in hopes of discovering the 'City of Gold'. While imprisoned for treason, he composed his famous book 'History of the World' - a historical view of the world with a heavy emphasis on geography. Even though the work was written as a history book, Raleigh intended to provide advice to King James I of England on how to handle his reign and his feelings toward princes. This 1698 first edition 'Abridgment' was edited and gathered by Laurence Echard, a British historian. Other important aspects of this abridgment to Raleigh's 'History' include: · History of creation · Creating fortune · Garden of Eden, paradise to Noah's Flood · God and the Tree of Knowledge · Egyptian Empires · Trojan Wars · Alexander the Great, Greek Civil Wars · Rise of Rome · Punic Wars; Macedonian empires; Hannibal, Scipio.

Comiers, a 16th-century Parisian mathematician, was remembered more for his treatises and scientific works on astronomy as well as this famous book on divination. He adored the Kabbalah and aspects of antiquarianism and discussed both in his "Oracles." According to Thorndike, oracle and prophetic literature was studied as an antiquarian pastime, and even though Comiers new this, he wrote this book with the intents of it being used for ocular predictions.

Louis Hennepin was a catholic priest and missionary of the Franciscan Recollect order and an explorer of the interior of North America. This is a continuation of his work from the previous year, in which Hennepin recounts his explorations to the New World. Hennepin was sent as a missionary to New France at the request of Louis XIV to accompany explorer Robert de la Salle, who was credited with claiming of the Mississippi river in the name of France. Hennepin was with La Salle at the construction of Fort Crevecouer when Le Salle sent Hennepin and two others as as an advance party to search for the Mississipi river. Hennepin was captured by the Sioux war party and abducted for a time. In these works Hennepin falsely calimed to have made a voyage of discovery along the lower Mississippi river before Le Salle's descent in 1682.

An important but much decried account of Hennepin's travels in what is now the United States and Canada, including his probably fictitious description of his voyage down, and up, the Mississippi. One of the two plates is the first depiction of the Niagara Falls. Hennepin made two voyages to the New World, the first was on the same boat as the explorer René-Robert Cavalier de La Salle, arriving in Quebec in 1675. The following year he traveled to Fort Frontenac (now Kingston) on Lake Ontario and helped establish a mission there.

Hennepin accompanied Accault on an exploratory expedition … [Click Below for Full Description]
