         ATLAS" DE L'UTILITE DE LA PHYSIQUE - L'ORDRE DES TABLES DE LA PHYSIQUE

      1650 - - Sans Date, pas de page de titre. - Très bel ex-libris signé Henry André. - In-quarto belle reliure plein veau du 17e S., dos à cinq nerfs frottée en queue, fleurons, Titre "Physique" aux fers dorés, plats ornés d'un double filet d'encadrement. - 2 f., 26 feuillets doubles montés sur onglet, impression du 17e. - 1er Feuillet double : PRESENTATION, DE L'UTILITE DE LA PHYSIQUE. L'ORDRE DES TABLES DE LA PHYSIQUE avec un plan en forme synoptique repris dans la méthode tout au long des 25 TABLES qui suivent de la première à la vingt cinquième et dernière. La Physique est générale ou particulière. - 1re Table : Les Principes sont de connaissance ou des choses naturelles. - 2nd Table : Le Corps naturel est ou inanimé ou animé - 3me Table : Les principes des choses naturelles seront considérées ou absolument ou respectivement. - 4me Table : Pour donner la connaissance de la matière, il en faut découvrir l'existence ou il faut montrer ou la nature ou il faut supposer. - 5me Table : De la privation, de la forme substantielle, de la comparaison. - 6me Table : Les causes qui doivent être examinée dans la physique sont de l'avanture ou de la nature. - 7me Table : Du Cas d'avanture il faut une connaissance claire, une cause, générale ou particulière. - 8me Table : Le corps naturel a de l'étendue, occupe un lieu et se rencontre dans son temps qui est la mesure du mouvement et a quatre propriétés. - 9me Table : Il faut savoir trois choses pour discourir utilement des mouvements. - 10me Table : Il faut supposer cinq choses pour discourir clairement des espèces du corps naturel qui doivent être examinés dans la seconde partie de la physique. - 11me Table : Le corps composé est ou imparfait ou parfait. - 12me Table : Le corps animé est composé du corps et de l'âme et peut être connu par l'explication de l'âme. - 13me Table : L'âme peut être définie par ses effets et par son essence. - 14me Table : Nous devons faire la division de l'âme pour la connaître clairement et l'élever. - 15me Table : L'âme a des puissances qui sont différentes de son essence ou disposée par ordre. - 16me Table : Pour connaître les puissances de l'âme il faut examiner le sujet et l'objet. - 17me Table : L'Ame est ou végétative ou sensitive. - 18me Table : Les principales choses qui dépendent de al nourriture en dépendent pour estre produites et conservées. - 19me Table : L'âme sensitive peut être connue par ses facultés qui sont ou le sens ou l'appétit ou la puissance qui meut les parfaits animaux. - 20me Table : Nous devons examiner trois choses qui sont les sens en particulier, l'appétit sensuel et la puissance. - 21me Table : Il faut trois choses pour savoir la manière et l'ordre pour discourir de l'âme raisonnable. - 22me Table : Pour discourir clairmeent de l'entendement il en faut examiner l'objet, la nature, l'action. - 23me Table : Discours sur la Volonté et la mémoire. - 24me Table : Nous pouvons comparer l'entendement ou avec la volonté ou avec la mémoire. - 25me et Dernière Table de la Physique : Nous devons traiter de la Parole et de l'Immortalité de l'âme raisonnable. Cet ouvrage nous semble être une analyse synoptique des oeuvres et de la philosophie d'Aristote à travers le prisme thomiste. On y retrouve de la PHYSIQUE, du TRAITE DE L'AME, et des CATEGORIES d'Aristote. Les première phrases nous laissent penser à Saint Thomas : "Comme la dernière perfection de la raison dans la contemplation de *dieu & que nous n'avons pas assez de lumière pour le connoistre par luy mesme, nous pourrons tirer de grans avantages de la physique qui nous en donne quelque connoissance par la considération de ses effets" ; " L'homme est le plus noble des effets de Dieu que nous puissions connoistre ; cst pouruoy le principal devoir de la physique est de nous en faire connoistre la nature et l'origine" ; "Puisque la clarté de nos connoissances dépend de l'Ordre l'utilité de la Physique peut estre clairement connÛE PAR L4ordre des choses qu'elle doit considérer".

         Vipera Pythia. Id est, de viperæ natura, veneno, medicina, demonstrationes, & experimenta nova.

      1650 - Padua: Frambotti. 1650. Small 4to. Contemporary vellum binding, later red morocco gilt labels to spine, yapp edges; pp. [xii] + 522 + [xxii], including several engravings and engraved head- and tail-pieces, illustrated half title; circular scratch marks to sides, some loss to labels, discreet repairs to pp. 99-102 and 179-80 without loss, corner of pp. 217-8 repaired with loss affecting final word on p. 217/ occasional browning, generally very good. First edition. Text in Latin. Very scarce; a copy of this edition last came to auction in 1988. A 1651 second issue is far more common. This is a fascinating work on snakes, dealing not only with their anatomy, venom, medicinal properties and the treatment of bites but also with the folklore surrounding serpents. The plates depict not only snake anatomy but also mythical representations of serpents. This reflects the intellectual approach of the author: "[his] works presented a blend of empirical scientific observations and spiritual beliefs and speculations. He believed, for example, that studying anatomy would allow one to understand not just the natural world, but also the divine will and workings of the world’s creator. (His mysticism also caught the eye of the Inquisition, who brought him in for questioning, although he was eventually acquitted)" (Timothy D. Murray, Alexander C. Johnston, and Curtis Small, catalogue of University Delaware's Animal Vegetable Mineral exhibition, August - December 2014). Severinus (1580 - 1656) was an Italian surgeon who rose to become professor of anatomy in Naples, where he died of the plague. Osler 3961; OCLC records only three copies of this edition, in the British Library, the University of Glasgow and the Frisian Historical and Literary Centre. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

A fine copy of an extremely rare book on the market. It is interesting to note that Dr. John Martin, in his long book collecting career, never obtained a copy. Garrison-Morton 3729.

Path-breaking and influential works that went through several editions, Selden's studies of rabbinical law are among the first significant examples of comparative law. De Synedriis is a treatise on the Sanhedrin, an assembly of judges appointed in every city in the land of Israel who were given full authority over the Jewish population. It was begun around 1638 but never completed. Planned as a three-part work, the second part was published in 1653. The incomplete third part followed in 1655. Each work is bibliographically distinct. "[Selden's] familiarity with rabbinical literature was such as has been acquired by few non-Israelite scholars; and many details of oriental civilization were certainly brought to the knowledge of Europeans for the first time in them. (...) Their extraordinary erudition won them much praise...": Dictionary of National Biography XVII:1157. English Short-Title Catalogue R4091.

      William Du-gard, London 1650 - This book is in good antiquarian condition. It has been handsomely rebound in 3/4 leather, marbled boards, endpapers renewed It is a small octavo and measures 5.25" x 7". It is packed with numerous engraved portrait plates, the portrait area on page 320 blank as issued. Pagination is as follows [32], 352, 363-378, 389-500, [8] pages, the gaps represent numbering errors when the book was printed, as per bibliographic references, but the book is complete. The paper shows minor age-toning and foxing, the last two pages with ink inscriptions and notes in a very early hand (see photo), small corner tears on two pages repaired, printing sharp, engraved portraits sharp and beautifully printed.This is a very pleasing and handsome copy of what appears to be the scarce first edition . Although Worldcat (OCLC) erroneously lists a 1649 edition, it is actually the 1650 first edition; the preface is dated December 1649, but the title page reads MDCL [1650], see also Lowndes, p473, as well The Spirituality of the Later English Puritans: An Anthology, introduction. There was a second portion printed also in 1650, an expanded edition in 1654 and further expanded edition in 1675, these are not included here. But there is something quite unusual about this book, in that the edition from the Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library which we checked this copy against does not include the full page portrait, which this edition does, but it does include a preliminary commendatory leaf, which this copy does not. But Lowndes, the principal British bibiliography, lists a 1650 edition with a 1649 portrait, which thus perhaps makes this technically a true 1649 first edition, a variant, that conforms otherwise, but perhaps with the portrait instead of a commendatory leaf, it was printed a bit earlier than the other first editions, ie. perhaps even in late December, 1649. This 1650 edition does not conform completely to either of the 1650 editions in ESTC, containing neither the title lines of the one, but containing a hyphen which is not on the 2nd -- again, not quite fitting either ESTC entry. The book is the famous Puritan biography of great Church fathers and leaders, from ancient Christians like Ignatius and Polycarp, Augustine and Ambrose, to Protestant founders like Luther and Calvin, and to later commentators like Theodore Beza and Joseph Scaliger. It is handsomely printed, and includes numerous beautiful engraved portraits of the Christian luminaries, followed by their biographies. This book has been professionally rebound with contemporary looking leather spine with gilt lettering and leather corners, and marbled hardcover boards. A truly beautiful edition.This book contains the curious poem on the back of the title page, "from the licencer to the Autor, concerning his book".This Book doth make the dead to live, This Book will live, when you are dead, This Book will make you live, when dead, This Book therefore I make to live.The author, Samuel Clarke or Clark (1599–1683) was an English clergyman and significant Puritan biographer ; Copper plate; 8vo 8" - 9" tall [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Pero en su momento, su 'Cronología' llamó tanto la atención que se consideró una obra que merecía ser actualizada y mantenida al día. Eso fue así porque la obra de Kallwitz podría adscribirse a la corriente hoy denominada 'cronología sistemática', formada por quienes se centraron en el cómputo del tiempo y en la recopilación de fenómenos de los meteoros como mojones fehacientes de fechas concretas. Para esos autores, la sucesión de eclipses o el paso de cometas ya no tenían un carácter de augurio, sino que eran un necesario objeto de estudio en sí mismos porque, tras la obra de Copérnico, se sabía que en su movimiento existía una cadencia precisa que permitía emplearlos para medir tiempos. La visión de la cronología de estos autores partía de la que Scaliger había propuesto en 1583 en su De Emendatione Temporum, donde acudió a los movimientos celestes para datar acontecimientos históricos consiguiendo 'revolver' el concepto de Historia vigente en la mentalidad europea para hacer de ella un lecho común para todas las civilizaciones. Hasta entonces, la Historia era solo la de griegos y latinos; la del pueblo judío pertenecía a la Religión; y la de los pueblos de Oriente eran poco menos que leyendas. Compartiendo los criterios, Kallwitz no dudó en afirmar que, como "con mucha frecuencia los historiadores registraron los eclipses, dando cuenta de ellos en las historias de reyes y emperadores, estos se nos presentan como el mejor testimonio tanto para establecer la duración de un determinado reinado, como para certificar el verdadero desarrollo de los acontecimientos. Los eclipses proporcionan una certeza infalible, puesto que pueden calcularse astronómicamente y datarse para cualquier época"(1). A ese objetivo dedicó su Opus chronologicum, donde, tras un extenso capítulo inicial destinado a enseñar cómo calcular los eclipses solares y lunares y a mostrar exhaustivamente los tipos de calendario empleados en las culturas antiguas y del cercano oriente, de sus correspondencias y de cómo pasar de uno a otro, fue estableciendo, a partir de la datación de unos 300 eclipses, las fechas de multitud de los acontecimientos descritos por los historiadores que tuvieron lugar desde el día que en el calendario juliano era el 26 de octubre del 3949 a.c., la fecha en que se habría iniciado el mundo, el primer día del Génesis. Calvisius utilizó ese calendario porque el 'gregoriano' propugnado por Gregorio XIII en 1582 solo había comenzado a aplicarse en territorios católicos, mientras en el resto seguía empleándose el 'juliano'. Más aún, discrepante con la base científica utilizada para [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         Vipera Pythia. Id est, de viperæ natura, veneno, medicina, demonstrationes, & experimenta nova.

      Padua: Frambotti. 1650. Small 4to. Contemporary vellum binding, later red morocco gilt labels to spine, yapp edges; pp. [xii] + 522 + [xxii], including several engravings and engraved head- and tail-pieces, illustrated half title; circular scratch marks to sides, some loss to labels, discreet repairs to pp. 99-102 and 179-80 without loss, corner of pp. 217-8 repaired with loss affecting final word on p. 217/ occasional browning, generally very good. First edition. Text in Latin. Very scarce; a copy of this edition last came to auction in 1988. A 1651 second issue is far more common. This is a fascinating work on snakes, dealing not only with their anatomy, venom, medicinal properties and the treatment of bites but also with the folklore surrounding serpents. The plates depict not only snake anatomy but also mythical representations of serpents. This reflects the intellectual approach of the author: "[his] works presented a blend of empirical scientific observations and spiritual beliefs and speculations. He believed, for example, that studying anatomy would allow one to understand not just the natural world, but also the divine will and workings of the world's creator. (His mysticism also caught the eye of the Inquisition, who brought him in for questioning, although he was eventually acquitted)" (Timothy D. Murray, Alexander C. Johnston, and Curtis Small, catalogue of University Delaware's Animal Vegetable Mineral exhibition, August - December 2014). Severinus (1580 - 1656) was an Italian surgeon who rose to become professor of anatomy in Naples, where he died of the plague. Osler 3961; OCLC records only three copies of this edition, in the British Library, the University of Glasgow and the Frisian Historical and Literary Centre.
