         De la vertu des Payens

      Paris, Chez François Targa, 1642, in 4°, de 4ff. 374pp., pl. basane racinée 18e, dos lisse entièr. orné, bel exemplaire. Edition originale de cet important traité polémique, par un des piliers des figures du libertinage érudit du XVIIe siècle. La Mothe Le Vayer avance ici que le Salut ou la Rédemption peuvent s'opérer sans le secours du Christ, après avoir établi que les bonnes actions des païens sont aussi de véritables vertus. Ainsi "L'homme depuis sa chute trouve assez de force en lui-même pour opérer son salut sans le secours de Jésus-Christ" (Busson p.408). Sentant que l'ouvrage risquait de faire scandale, il rajouta in fine, alors que le livre était déjà imprimé, quelques pages (pp. 371-374) pour se justifier d'une comparaison qu'il avait établie entre Saint-Etienne et Socrate. L'ouvrage n'est pas que philosophique, car c'est aussi un livre politique « très utile pour aider contre une austérité fanatique qu'il estimait dangereuse pour la paix des consciences, les efforts de Richelieu » (Pintard). Il est divisé en deux parties : dans la première il évoque l'organisation de l'état, dans la seconde il traite en détail des philosophes de l'antiquité (Socrate, Platon, Aristote, Diogène, Zenon, Pythagore, Épicure, Pyrrhon, Confucius, Sénèque et Jullien). ¶ Cioranescu 39692 - Tchemerzine III, 967a - Pintard libertins n°845 - James Libertins érudits n°227.

         De motu impresso a motore translato. Epistolae duae.

      Paris, Ludovicus de Hequeville, 1642 - 4to (216 x 170 mm), pp [viii] 159 [recte 151] [1], with woodcut device on title and several woodcut diagrams in text; small loss to blank corner of p 59, a very good copy in contemporary vellum, red sprinkled edges, minor rubbing and slight soiling to covers.First edition, rare, of Pierre Gassendi's important illustrated treatise on inertial mechanics. Written in the form of two letters addressed to the scholar and keeper of the King's library Pierre Depuy (1582-1651), the De motu impresso 'contains the first precise published formulation of the principle of inertia' as recently advanced by Galileo (Jones, p 63). 'Gassendi had taken up Galileo's research almost as soon as it had been published in the Two New Sciences in 1638. He made experiments with inclined planes and dropped stones from the mast of a moving ship and confirmed Galileo's results and predictions. On paper, he studied Galileo's unaccelerated and unretarded uniform horizontal motion in an imaginary space outside the world and succeeded in abstracting the first statement of the principle of inertia from both the intrinsic gravity and circular motion that had enthralled Galileo' (Hooper, pp 149-50). 'On one point - and it is an important one - [Gassendi] was more successful than Galileo: he correctly stated the principle of inertia. The experiment of the De motu impresso a motore translato, performed in 1640 in Marseilles, overthrew the argument of Copernicus's opponents against the movement of the earth. Gassendi arranged to have a weight dropped from the top of a vertical mast on a moving ship in order to demonstrate that it fell at the foot of the mast and not behind it, thus sharing in its fall the forward motion of the ship. Gassendi understood that the composition of motions is a universal phenomenon. Motion is, in itself, a physical state, a measurable quantity, not - as the Scholastics maintained - the change from one state to another. It changes only through the interposition of another movement or of an obstacle' (DSB). 'In this regard, Gassendi was able to take a step beyond Galileo's conclusions, drawing from this test a generalized principle of inertia (the Galilean version of inertia was fundamentally circular, given that bodies in motion would trace the earth's curve). Gassendi saw that the motion of the dropped stone at a sustained speed - in the absence of any contrary force or obstacle - is an instance of inertial motion, albeit one where the motion is compositional (describing the parabola). Indeed, neither compositionality nor directionality had any impact on inertial motion, Gassendi concluded: any body set in motion in any direction continues, unless impeded, in a rectilinear path' (Fisher, 'Pierre Gassendi' in The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, online). The De motu impresso is also notable for its diagrammatic representations of the mathematic of motion, namely in its abandonment of Galileo's 'triangle of speeds' in favor of 'a visually and conceptually different representation based on a lattice of triangles' (Meli, p 120, and see, Palmerino, passim).

         Africae nova Tabula Auct. Jud. Hundio.

      Sumptibus et typis aenei Joannis Janssonij, Amstelodami 1642 [Amsterdam, 1642] - Copper engraved with hand colour 445 x 552 mm A beautiful and unrecorded state of a Jansson publication of one of Hondius' famous carte-a-figures maps, depicting the continent of Africa. Hondius' carte-e-figures maps of the world and the four continents are some of his most desirable. In the current example, the continent of Africa is shown, with the southernmost sections of Europe visible, as well as the adjoining Arabian peninsula and parts of Asia. The borders of the various empires and nations of mainland Africa, as well as the seacoasts of Madagascar and the islands of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans, are outlined in hand colour, and principal cities are picked out in red. Although largely fictitious, abundant waterways and mountain ranges criss-cross the landmass. Particularly notable are the large lakes Zaire and Zaflan, at the foothills of the Mountains of the Moon. Numerous African animals populate the interior, including lions and barbary sheep near the Moroccan coast, a very stylised crocodile in West Africa, elephants, a leopard and a hyena in the Congo, and a pair of ostriches and a monkey in Nubia. The reefs and shoals of the Indian ocean are shown as dotted or crossed patches, while numerous sailing ships, flying fish, and sea monsters adorn the seas. The map is further ornamented by a pair of baroque cartouches, one containing the title surrounded by ribbons and garlands of fruit, while the other, containing the publisher's details, is supported by languid cherubs and features a timepiece intended to remind the viewer that life is short and time is always fleeting. The highly decorative border features vignettes of principal African cities based on Braun and Hogenberg, including Alexandria, Mozambique, Alger (Algiers), Tunis, Tanger (Tangier), Ceuta, Alcair (Cairo), St. Georgius della Mina (Elmina, Ghana), Canaria (Grand Canary), Quiloa (Kilwa Kisiwani, Tanzania), Tzaffin (Safi, Morocco), and Ceffala (Sofala, Mozambique), while pairs of figures represent the costumes of Moroccans, Senegalese, Guinean merchants, Congalese soldiers, Egyptians, Abyssinians, Mozambicans, a Madagascan king, and inhabitants of the Cape of Good Hope. Unusually, the cartography for this map is not based upon the 1606 Hondius wall map of Africa, but rather on the geography of Hondius' competitor, Willem Blaeu, who published a very similar series of carte-e-figures maps in 1617. The current example is something of a cartographic mystery. Hondius, for reasons unknown, engraved two almost identical maps of Africa with decorative borders, the first in 1619, and the second in 1623. Each was issued in various different states and remained in use up until the 1650s. The key difference between the two is the inclusion on the second plate of a large baroque cartouche, featuring a distinctive memento mori clock-face of a radiate skull. The cartouche is an almost direct copy of the one appearing on van den Keere's 1614 map of the continent. This particular map is a previously unrecorded state of the second of these plates. Betz lists Jansson imprints of 1623 and 1632, but not, as the case is here, of 1642. The map must predate the final state of the early 1650's, as it still retains the bottom border missing from later printings and retains an engraved publication date in the lower cartouche. The current example was almost certainly separately published. It is blank on the verso, has been printed over two sheets, and at some point has clearly been bound and folded into a much smaller volume, most likely an extra-illustrated history of the continent, or some form of composite atlas. The heavy re-engraving of the plate, and the fact that the figures and vignettes of various African cities appear in reverse, a product of copying from an earlier printed map rather than from the original copper plate, also suggests a separate and unrecorded 1642 printing. Jodocus Hondius (14th October 1563 - 12th February 1612) was a Dutch Flemish cartographer, engraver

Schotel, met zeer veel aantekeningen van zijn hand en los in het boek 24 p. manuscript over Droste, ook van Schotel. Lit.: NNBW VI, 454."Autobiografie op rijm van Coenraad Droste (Dordrecht 1642 - Den Haag 1734), die tot zijn vierendertigste officier was in het leger van de Republiek, dus ook in het rampjaar 1672, toen het land in oorlog was met al zijn buren. Omdat hij als staatsgezinde van de Oranjepartij die sinds dat jaar aan de macht was geen promotie meer hoefde te verwachten, nam hij in 1676 ontslag en besteedde de bijna zestig jaren die volgden aan verzen schrijven, schilderijen verzamelen en reizen. Een eerste proeve van levensbeschrijving verscheen in 1723 ('Verversing van geheuchgenis'); in deze uitgave van 1728 is het aantal verzen meer dan verdubbeld en toen hij in 1734 stierf, 92 jaar oud, lag de kopij voor een derde druk klaar, met nog eens 2600 nieuwe verzen. Die derde druk kwam pas 150 jaar later, door toedoen van de historicus R. Fruin. Ze geven ons van het leven van een aanzienlijk en vermogend man in de dagen van Willem III een aanschouwelijker beeld, dan wij elders in onze, aan gedenkschriften zo arme letterkunde te zien krijgen, zo oordeelde hij over Drostes 'Overblyfsels van geheuchgenis'. De voormalige eigenaar van het hier aangeboden exemplaar, de predikant en historicus Schotel, heeft - zoals hij op de titelpagina schrijft - uittreksels uit die 2600 verzen in de marges bijgeschreven en bovendien zelf nog een groot aantal bijzonderheden over Droste bijeengebracht die bij elkaar 24 handgeschreven bladzijden vullen."

         Historische Chronica, oder Beschreibung der fürnemsten Geschichten, so sich von Anfang der Welt, biß auff unsere Zeiten zugetragen

      Third edition; an interesting history of the world, in an imposing volume, contemporary-bound in a peculiar blindstamped skin, with devices on covers coloured by a contemporary hand. The binding seems to by in imitation of the Wittenberg binder Thomas Kruger. A remarkable binding, in a strictly untouched state, featuring a medallion on the front cover with contemporary colour representing "Caritas and the beggar", and lettered in blind re-enhanced with red with the inscription "Chronica J. L. Gottfridi M.DC.XXXXII. Matthaeus Merian Frankcfurt Ammain", thus identifying the work and printers details; the lower cover is more austere in decoration, simply showing the Brandenburg arms, also heightened with colour, this time red and black. The binding is probably attributable to a follower of the Kruger workshop (see his Melanchton/Luther-decorated binding at the BL). The Margraviate of Brandenburg, and their longest ruling house, the Hohenzollern, played a significant role in the history of Germany and Central Europe, by the 17th century it inherited the Duchy of Prussia, paving the way to the Kingdom of Prussia, which would help shape modern Europe; the relevance and influence of the Margraves was rivalled by only a few houses across Europe (having had part of the Elections for the Holy Roman Emperor, participating in the Prussian victories and expansion in the 18th century, the dissolution of the Holy Roman Empire in the 19th century, and the unification of Germany in the 19th century), this binding, commissioned for one of them, or presented as a gift by them, is a wonderful testimony to the House´s splendour. The illustration is comprised of an engraved frontispiece by Sandrart double page maps and views (namely that of the world and Gibraltar in siege) is by Merian the elder (1593 - 1650), father of Maria Sibylla, and one of the leading figures in publishing and book-illustration of the first half of the 17th century in Germany, whose career began by joining the well-established De Bry family of publishers and travellers. The Historische Chronica can take its place amongst the most famed histories of the world, having gone through several editions in the 17th and 18th century; Gottfried (1584 - 1633) was a German historian, writer, translator and publisher, this is likely his magnum opus. Although not rare in itself, it is unusual to find it in such a binding, and complete. Haebler I, 251, XVII and II, 46, IV. Shirley 345. Graesse III, 122.

         An interpretation of the number 666. Wherein, not onely the manner, how this number ought to be interpreted, is clearely proved and demonstrated: but it is also shewed, yt [sic] this number is an exquisite and perfect character, truly, exactly, and essentially describing that state of goverment, to wch [sic] all other notes of Antichrist doe agree. With all knowne objections, solidly, and fully answeared, yt [sic] can be materially made against it. By Francis Potter B.D [Earls of Macclesfield copy]

      Oxford: printed by Leonard Lichfield, , 1642. First Edition. Half-Calf. Near Fine. 4to: [16],214,[2]pp, with a copper-engraved title page showing numerical manifestations of ‘666’ and their supposed connections with the Catholic Church, signed: W.

Provenance: book plate from the North Library of the Earls of Macclesfield and binder's ticket (Hatton of Manchester) on front paste down. Wing P3028. ESTC Citation No. R40657. Madan, II, 1032. First Edition one of the most curious and fascinating books published during the seventeenth century, Potter’s treatise on the Number of the Beast. Clergyman, instrument-maker and a founder of the Royal Society, Potter, according to the ODNB, "was interested in computing the number of the beast, connecting 25, the ‘appropinque’ square root of 666, with various institutions in the Roman Catholic church. His ideas were elaborated in a manuscript which was read in 1637 by Joseph Mede, and commended as a wonderful discovery, the ‘happiest that ever yet came into the world.'" Pepys considered it ‘mighty ingenious’. It continued to be influential and was reprinted in Worcester as late as 1808. Aubrey’s short ‘life’ of Potter paints a vivid picture of his character and highly inventive mind.

      Amsterdam: , c 1642. Size: 480 × 580 mm. Copperplate engraving with early wash colour. Dutch text on verso. Very good condition. A very fine and most attractive mid seventeenth century map of the delightful L'Isle de Ré and the L'Isle de Oleron in the Pictou-Charentes region of north west France. North is orientated to the left. This Blaeu map is typically detailed and precise and complemented by a number of subtle, decorative embellishments; compass roses, galleons, a divider and a mileage scale, a sea monster, and a discreet title cartouche. Throughout the twelfth and thirteenth centuries, the island alternated between belonging to the English or French crowns. In 1987, a 3 km bridge was constructed between the island and the mainland, making the island an attractive tourist and holiday destination.

      - Lidén I, s. 408 för Johannes Rosenhanes avhandling under Schefferus presidium. Drees 158, 160 resp. 161 för begravningsverserna, samtliga med alexandriner. Fint samlingsband med Rosenhaneskrifter. Den blivande presidenten för Tribunalet i Wismar Johan Rosenhane (1642-1710), son till Schering Rosenhane, var, tillsammans med sina bröder Axel och Bengt, elev till Johannes Schefferus. Hans avhandling om rådsherrens uppgifter och funktioner (utifrån exempel hos Cicero) blev ett viktigt instrument i författningskrisen mellan råd och ständer 1660, rörande förmyndarskapet för den minderårige Karl XI. I denna var inte minst pappa Schering aktiv förespråkare för maktfördelningslinjen där rådet (högadeln) skulle vara mera delaktig i styrelsen av riket. Avhandlingen går på samma linje; rådsherren är själva stödjepelaren på vilken samhället vilar. Se Runeby s. 518ff. Det var dock inte denne Johannes som dog 1661 och begravdes i Nyköping, utan hans farbror. Jonas Hambraeus (1588-1671), som skrev hyllningsversen till Schering Rosenhanes son Axels födelse 1637 (och eventuellt även den till Scherings bröllop med Beata Sparre), var sedan 1626 svensk predikant i den lutheranska kyrkan i Paris, och från 1628 professor i orientaliska språk vid Paris universitet. År 1636 var han dessutom kopplad till Hugo Grotius svenska ambassad i Paris. Hyllningen avslutas med en dikt av Jollivet. Bröllopshyllningen är i dramatisk form (ej i Klemming). I Paris bistod Hambraeus ofta unga svenska adelsmän på deras peregrinationer med penninglån, vilket mot slutet av hans liv straffade sig, då han sällan fick tillbaka sina pengar och t.o.m. hamnade i bysättningshäkte för sina skulder.

Un exemplaire en Suisse, un à Berlin et deux à Parme et Turin. Page de titre en rouge et noir comportant une grande vignette aux armes de Marseille entourée de la devise « Massillia Civitas ». L'exemplaire contient un plan de la ville dessiné par Jacques Maretz et gravé par Maretty, numérotant les « lieus [sic] les plus remarquables » de la cité, avant les agrandissements entrepris à partir de 1669. Quelques bois in-texte figurant des monnaies anciennes et des antiquités. Bandeaux et lettrines. Noms des auteurs évoqués en marge. Ex-libris à la plume de l'époque et tampon de cire sur les gardes. Importante reliure de l'époque en plein maroquin citron à semis de fleurs de lys, dos à cinq nerfs orné de roulettes dorées et de caissons fleurdelisés, large dentelle dorée en encadrement des plats frappés d'un semis de fleurs de lys doré, toutes tranches dorées. Mors, coiffes et coins habilement restaurés. Rousseurs éparses, un peu plus marquées en début de volume. Une amusante et très discrète restauration à l'endroit du sexe du putto de droite sur la carte. L'ouvrage, couvrant une période de l'Antiquité jusqu'à 1610, se divise en dix livres traitant des sujets suivants : - fondation de Marseille jusqu'à la guerre civile entre César et Pompée, ses peuples anciens, l'arrivée des Phocéens et l'étymologie du nom de la ville, - état de la ville pendant quatre siècles, sa place dans l'Empire romain et les différents gouvernements (burgondes, goths puis francs) qui y ont été établis sous les Empereurs, - puissance des vicomtes de Marseille et généalogie des comtes de Provence appelés par l'auteur « la première race », - rachat et contention de la Seigneurie par les Marseillais et alliance avec Nice et le Comte d'Empurias, - première convention entre Charles d'Anjou (comte de Provence) et la ville de Marseille et amitié du Roi de Castille, - mort du Roi René et passation de pouvoir à Charles du Maine, puis à Louis XI, - tentatives de siège déjouées et entrée du Roi Charles IX dans la ville, - prise de pouvoir de Charles de Casaulx, favorisée par la Comtesse de Sault, et tyrannie qu'il instaure à la fin du XVIème siècle, - ordre et succession des évêques de Marseille de Saint Lazare à Pierre Gérard, - différents édifices publics, encore en place ou en ruine. Antoine de Ruffi (1607-1689) est un historien marseillais ; il fut conseiller à la sénéchaussée de Marseille et conseiller d'état. Il est le petit-fils de Robert Ruffi (1542-1634), secrétaire et confident de Charles de Casaulx et premier archivaire rémunéré de la ville de Marseille. Après sa mort, Antoine de Ruffi conserva les papiers de son grand-père qui furent pour lui d'un secours documentaire précieux dans la rédaction de ses différents ouvrages historiques. En 1696, après la disparition d'Antoine, Louis-Antoine de Ruffi (1657-1724) publia une seconde édition augmentée de l'Histoire de la ville de Marseille qui fut en partie financée par la ville elle-même. Cette Histoire, qui connut un grand succès au moment de sa parution est, de nos jours encore, une référence incontournable de l'histoire marseillaise, de nombreux documents et lieux évoqués ayant aujourd'hui disparu. C'est la première fois qu'un historien entreprit de rédiger une histoire aussi étendue de la cité phocéenne, comme le souligne Ruffi dans sa préface : « Bien qu'un si noble sujet deut [dut] obliger les rares esprits qu'elle [Marseille] a produit de temps en temps d'exercer leur plume à descrire de si belles choses, & d'informer la postérité de ce qui estoit arrivé de remarquable dans leur Patrie : Il ne s'en est trouvé aucun qui ait voulu prendre la peine d'en recueillir l'Histoire, ou de laisser des mémoires de ce qu'il avoit veu ou appris de ses ancestres. » Ruffi donne une vision élogieuse et combative de Marseille : « l'Histoire de Marseille a dequoy prendre & tenir le Lecteur par les merveilles de sa naissance & de son progrez, par les changemens memorables de son Estat & de sa fortune, par les victoires qu'elle a r'emportées sur diverses Nations qui ont esté enuieuses de sa gloire ou ennemies de son repos, & par les marques de grandeur qui la rendent comparable aux plus celebres Republiques de l'Europe. » Souvent absent des exemplaires recensés, l'exceptionnel plan dépliant « en vue d'oiseau » présente une vision à la fois réaliste et synthétique, mettant en lumière les « lieus les plus remarquables » de la cité en 1597. La fin du XVIème siècle est marquée, dans l'histoire de Marseille, par la prise de pouvoir de Charles de Casaulx. Prenant la tête des ligueurs, il s'empare de la ville en 1591, imposant une dictature contre l'aristocratie marchande jusqu'en 1596, date de son assassinat. La carte met en évidence de grands monuments amenés à disparaître au cours des travaux de modernisation entrepris dans la seconde partie du siècle : l'enceinte fortifiée médiévale, rasée en 1660 après les critiques de Vauban, la Porte Réale, lieu historique d'entrée des souverains dans la ville, détruite en 1667 suite au décret royal de 1666 promulguant le développement d'une « ville nouvelle ». Les plans de Marseille avant cette grande extension à l'initiative de Louis XIV sont rares. Mais Jacques Maretz rend également hommage à des monuments disparus au moment de la parution de l'ouvrage de Ruffi. À l'extrémité ouest du promontoire Saint-Jean, il choisit de faire figurer une tour datant du XIVème siècle, alors disparue, et qui ne sera rebâtie qu'en 1644. Aujourd'hui encore elle porte le nom de « Tour du Fanal ». Ce fanal est évoqué dans l'édition de 1696 : « Il y avait autrefois à Marseille un Fanal pour éclairer les Vaisseaux qui venoient la nuit aborder en ce Port, afin de se garentir du danger ; il étoit scitué au même endroit où est celui qu'on voit maintenant, qui fut bâti l'an 1644. L'ancien Fanal étoit en état l'an 1351. » Le cartographe représente également les galères et les canons, symbolisant l'importance des infrastructures navales et des arsenaux présents depuis l'Empire romain, faisant de Marseille un port de guerre de premier ordre. Cet engouement pour les galères est sur le déclin au moment de la publication de l'ouvrage, ces dernières ayant été transférées à Toulon à l'arrivée de l'épidémie de peste en 1629. La carte de Maretz est donc bien un hommage à la Marseille médiévale, bientôt transfigurée par les grands travaux royaux. Les Marseillais sont d'ailleurs relativement hostiles à ces changements, comme le souligne Béatrice Hénin dans son étude « L'agrandissement de Marseille (1666-1690) : Un compromis entre les aspirations monarchiques et les habitudes locales » (in Annales du Midi : revue archéologique, historique et philologique de la France méridionale, 1986) : « Les rapports de Louis XIV et de Marseille sont placés sous le signe de l'orage. Dernière cité française à avoir manifesté quelque sursaut la ville sera durement matée par le jeune souverain auréolé de sa toute récente victoire contre l'Espagne, et ce l'année même de la signature du traité des Pyrénées, en 1660. Louis XIV, après que Marseille ait été écrasée par ses troupes, vient en effet en personne faire état de sa souveraineté. Sans crainte de froisser les susceptibilités locales, il pénètre dans la ville par une brèche faite dans les remparts alors que de tout temps les souverains étaient entrés par la porte Réale. Ce geste vise à démontrer aux Marseillais que leur ville fait partie intégrante du royaume et que ses privilèges ancestraux n'ont plus de raison d'être. » La volonté de Ruffi et de Maretz est la même, tous deux se font les ambassadeurs de cette Marseille médiévale forte et prospère. + de photos Superbe exemplaire parfaitement établi dans une reliure de l'époque en plein maroquin fleurdelisé.

The first edition of a learned essay on the origins of the American Indians. It was a reply to Grotius who had argued in 1642 that the American Indians were descendants of Norsemen, Ethiopians and Chinese, basing his theory mainly on linguistic arguments. Hornius criticized Grotius's philological approach and placed the origins of the American peoples in Scythia, Phoenicia, Carthage and China. The work is bound with Blesdijk's famous biography of the Anabaptist leader David Joris, edited by Jacobus Revius. It remains the most important source for the life and teaching of David Joris.Fine copies. With minor surface defects in the vellum, but binding still very good.

        De motu impresso a motore translato. Epistolae duae.

      Paris: Ludovicus de Hequeville, 1642. Hardcover. Very Good. 4to [21.6 x 17.0 cm]. (4) ff., 159 (i.e. 151) pp., with woodcut device on title, woodcut diagrams, woodcut headpieces and initials. Bound in contemporary vellum, red sprinkled edges. Minor rubbing and handsoiling to covers, annotations on endpapers. Cancelled manuscript shelf mark on title, early annotations in several hands, small corner loss at p. 59. Rare first edition of Pierre Gassendi's (1592-1655) important illustrated treatise on inertial mechanics. Written in the form of two letters addressed to the scholar and keeper of the king's library Pierre Depuy (1582-1651), the De motu impresso "contains the first precise published formulation of the principle of inertia" as recently advanced by Galileo (Jones, p. 63). "Gassendi had taken up Galileo's research almost as soon as it had been published in the Two New Sciences in 1638. He made experiments with inclined planes and dropped stones from the mast of a moving ship and confirmed Galileo's results and predictions. On paper, he studied Galileo's unaccelerated and unretarded uniform horizontal motion in an imaginary space outside the world and succeeded in abstracting the first statement of the principle of inertia from both the intrinsic gravity and circular motion that had enthralled Galileo" (Hooper, pp. 149-50). "On one point - and it is an important one - [Gassendi] was more successful than Galileo: he correctly stated the principle of inertia. The experiment of the De motu impresso a motore translato, performed in 1640 in Marseilles, overthrew the argument of Copernicus's opponents against the movement of the earth. Gassendi arranged to have a weight dropped from the top of a vertical mast on a moving ship in order to demonstrate that it fell at the foot of the mast and not behind it, thus sharing in its fall the forward motion of the ship. Gassendi understood that the composition of motions is a universal phenomenon. Motion is, in itself, a physical state, a measurable quantity, not - as the Scholastics maintained - the change from one state to another. It changes only through the interposition of another movement or of an obstacle" (DSB, vols. 5 & 6, p. 288). "In this regard, Gassendi was able to take a step beyond Galileo's conclusions, drawing from this test a generalized principle of inertia (the Galilean version of inertia was fundamentally circular, given that bodies in motion would trace the earth's curve). Gassendi saw that the motion of the dropped stone at a sustained speed - in the absence of any contrary force or obstacle - is an instance of inertial motion, albeit one where the motion is compositional (describing the parabola). Indeed, neither compositionality nor directionality had any impact on inertial motion, Gassendi concluded: any body set in motion in any direction continues, unless impeded, in a rectilinear path" (See, Fisher). The De motu impresso is also notable for its diagrammatic representations of the mathematic of motion, namely in its abandonment of Galileo's 'triangle of speeds' in favor of "a visually and conceptually different representation based on a lattice of triangles" (Meli, p. 120, and see, Palmerino, passim).
