        Vita di S. Caterina da Siena.

       In Roma, Appresso Vitale Mascardi, 1656. In 4to piccolo (235 x 173 mm). [viii] 288 [12] pp., ultima bianca. Vignetta calcografica al frontespizio, grande stemma calcografico del dedicatario Alessandro VII alla carta successiva, ritratto calcografico di S. Caterina a piena pagina inciso da Guillaume Vallet. Iniziali e fregi xilografici. Pieno marocchino testa di moro coevo riccamente decorato alle armi di Alessandro VII, sguardie rinnovate, ex libris di primo Novecento, tagli dorati. Frontespizio controfondato, qualche pallida macchia occasionale, abrasioni ai margini della legatura, ma nel complesso bella copia genuina. SPLENDIDA LEGATURA ROMANA ALLE ARMI DI ALESSANDRO VII, papa dal 1655 al 1667, impresse al centro dei piatti e circondate da compartimenti polilobati seminati di decorazioni in oro e argento (ossidato), con agli angoli i simboli presenti nello stemma di Alessandro VII, ciascuno sovrastato da un motto diverso (qvo senior robvsta magis - nescio nvbes - saecla avrea reddet - sole oriente [?meco] - vim caelitvs havrit - sidera tango - solamen in vmbris - fvlmina sperno); in alto e in basso ovale contenente intreccio di frecce e lettere "PO.R.VN"; dorso liscio con simile decorazione (ossidata). Ringraziamo il Dott. Macchi che, avendo visto la legatura, ne ha attribuito l'esecuzione all'Enigmatic Binder, nome che identifica una ignota bottega romana attiva tra il pontificato di Paolo V (1605-1621) e quello di Innocenzo XI (1676-1689), i cui fregi sono simili a quelli della bottega Andreoli. La definizione di "enigmatic" deriva dalla presenza di un ferro indicante un rebus sul manufatto. Nella presente legatura, gli elementi che permettono di ascriverne la realizzazione all'Enigmatic Binder sono, secondo il Dott. Macchi, "la coppia di veneri drappeggiate circostanti lo scudo (Guido Vianini Tolomei, Un atelier de reliure à Rome au XVIIe siècle: l'atelier dit Énigmatique, in Bulletin du bibliophile, Paris, n. 2, 1993, pp. 322-343), p. 322, Fig. 1; Planche II, ferro n. 3), di seguito Vianini Tolomei 1993; le querce negli angoli e nello scudo (Vianini Tolomei 1993, Liste des livres reliés par l'atelier énigmatique, n. 22, C. Thomasius, Arbor....commentaria in summam Thomae, Rome, 1656, biblioteca vaticana, St. Chigi, III 141); le frecce (Legature papali da Eugenio IV a Paolo VI. Catalogo della mostra, a cura di Luigi Michelini Tocci, 1977, n. 227, tav. CLXVI, Paolo Frigerio Vita di S. Caterina da Siena, Roma, Vitale Mascardi, 1656, biblioteca vaticana, Stamp. Chigi III 394)." Il citato catalogo della mostra sulle legature papali riproduce di fatto una legatura molto simile alla presente (tavola CLXVI), descrivendola come segue (n. 227): "Splendida legatura romana in marocchino verde scuro (mm. 247 x 174). Decorazione dorata e argentata elegantissima, nella quale l'influsso francese viene liberamente interpretato e integrato con elementi originali. Negli scomparti, delimitati da doppi filetti sottili, si osservano leggiadri fogliami con le foglie smaltate d'argento e ferri svariatissimi, [...] i monti e la stella e la rovere araldici, [...] col motto POR VN (Por un dar dos). Al centro, lo stemma di Alessandro VII. Sul dorso, ancora i motivi araldici Chigiani, e (...) due coppie di dardi incrociate col motto POR VN, nel mezzo.". .

      London: Jacob Flesher, 1656 Only edition of this important illustrated astronomical text by English mathematician, autodidact, and astronomer Seth Ward on Kepler's Second Law of Planetary Motion, one of three fundamental laws of astronomy and physics which 1) describes elliptical orbits with the Sun at one of two foci, 2) dictates equal areas and equal time intervals swept out by a rotating line segment, and 3) states that the square of the orbital period of a body is proportional to the cube of the semi-major axis of its orbit. The Astronomia Geometrica was essentially Ward's second, and more complete, response to Ismail Boulliau's Astronomia Philolaica (Paris: 1645), in which Boulliau attempted to remove some of the notorious difficulties that Kepler's Second Law had presented to astronomers in the thirty-six years since its introduction to science. But Boulliau, in his work, succeeded in making matters only worse. He imagined cones of sorts, and pictured planets moving about axes central to these cones. Ward, in Astronomia Geometrica, remarked that this was like imagining a body moving in an "elliptical orbit with uniform angular velocity about the empty focus of the ellipse (the Sun being at the other focus)". (ODNB) Ward, in his work, was able to greatly simplify Boulliau's complexities. Ward's work was highly influential, especially among the next generation of English and Continental astronomers, who would have had to have struggled with trial and error and tedious approximation using Kepler's original formulae. An attractive volume, well printed with scores of typographic diagrams and one small folding plate. Octavo, 184 x 123 x 24 mm (binding), 180 x 121 x 20 mm (text block). [†]8, (††)8, B-N8, O4, P1.

        Menologiae Iovis compendium seu ephemerides Medicaeorum. [[half-title: Medicaeorum ephemerides . in tres partes distinctis .]

      Palermo, Decio Cirillo, 1656 - 4 parts in one vol, 4to (219 x 160 mm), pp [xviii of xx, see below] 3-71 [1, blank]; 79 [1, list of works by Odierna]; with Medici woodcut of sun on half-title, woodcut arms of Ferdinando II de’ Medici, the dedicatee, on first title-page, woodcut devices of printer on the other three title-pages, woodcut tailpieces, and 15 woodcut illustrations in text, two full-page, some on black ground, and several tables; a good copy in contemporary limp vellum, worn, some repairs to spine. First edition, exceptionally rare, of Odierna’s ‘Medicaeorum Ephemerides, probably his best-known work, the first published ephemerides of the Galilean satellites, based on an improved theory of the motion of Jupiter’s moons by the contribution of three types of periodic disturbances - analogous to contemporary planetary theory’ (Biographical Encyclopedia of Astronomers). This work also contains extensive observations of eclipses of the satellites, and important sections on Galileo and his Sidereus nuncius, the calculation of the distance of Jupiter from the earth, parallax, and the orbits of comets. Odierna made numerous observations to determine the exact orbital periods of the four observed satellites of Jupiter. ‘Like Galileo he tried to predict their eclipses, which would have helped to solve the long-standing, important problem of determining longitudes at sea; lacking sufficient knowledge of celestial mechanics, neither he nor Galileo was successful’ (DSB). Odierna (1597-1660) was a Sicilian priest and disciple of Galileo; the latter presented him with a telescope of moderate focal length. Inspired by Galileo’s Sidereus nuncius, he began a systematic investigation of the planets of Jupiter, the rings of Saturn, the fixed stars, and nebular objects, the first of its kind. He also performed pioneering microscopic dissections, including the first of the compound eye of a fly, which is illustrated in his Opuscoli, 1644. Although Odierna corresponded with Riccioli, Huygens, Schott, and other leading scientists of his day, his work was neglected, and his provincial position compounded his obscurity. This copy doesn’t have the repeat of the woodcut present on pp [48–9, blank on verso] in the second section. It was duplicated in the introduction, where it doesn’t belong, and that leaf was cancelled and removed from this copy. Other copies exhibit similar variations in collation. Provenance: early inscription on half-title ‘ex libris Dr D Felicii Focolaro’; early stamp ‘Conventus Naro’; Beltrame library see Serio et al, ‘G.B. Hodierna’s observations of nebulae and his cosmology’, Journal for the History of Astronomy XVI (1985) pp 1-36 Carli and Favaro 258; Macclesfield 1551; Riccardi I.2 214.8; OCLC records Berlin; Paris Obseratoire (without first part); Dibner/Burndy, US Naval Observatory, and Getty [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Le glorie di Pavia dallo stretto assedio e liberatione di essa riportate contro l' armi di Francia di Sauoia, e di Modona l' anno 1655. Alla real maestà di Filippo Quarto Rè delle Spagne &c. dedicate

      per Gio. Andrea Magri, 1656. In-4° antico (210x146mm), pp. (8), 304, (2) [con 2 lettere del Marques Conde de Pinto]; legatura novecentesca m. pergamena e angoli con titolo in oro su tassello in pelle rossa e fregi in oro su dorso a falsi nervi. Dedica a astampa a Filippo IV di Spagna Conservata la brossura anteriore antica. Aloni ad alcune pp., strappo restaurato (senza perdita di testo) alle pp. 137-138. Manca, come alla maggior parte degli esemplari, la tavola ripiegata raffigurante in prospettiva la pianta di Pavia assediata. Prima e unica edizione, rara, di questa puntualissima cronaca quasi contemporanea agli eventi dell'assedio di Pavia del maggio-settembre 1655, eventi di cui il Pirogallo fu testimone oculare ("Senza passione io scrivo solamente di cose verissime, ò da me vedute, e sono le operate nell'assedio, od intese da Prencipi, e Personaggi grandi") e che videro i pavesi resistere eroicamente agli eserciti coalizzati di Francia, Savoia e Modena. La data si ricava dall'imprimatur. Del Pirogallo, storico pavese e pubblico lettore di belle lettere nell'Università della sua città, non sono noti gli estremi biografici; egli dette alle stampe anche una raccolta di "Discorsi accademici e famigliari" (Milano, 1627) e fu membro della locale Accademia degli Affidati con il nome "L'Affezionato". British Library Catalogue of Seventeenth Century Italian Books, II, p. 690. Platneriana, p. 255. Vinciana, I, 925. Lozzi, 3409, nota. Michel-Michel,VI,126. Coleti, p. 164. Italiano

        L'Imitation de Jésus-Christ. Traduite et paraphrasée en vers françois.

      A Paris, chez André Doubron, Libraire de la Reyne, 1656.. in-4. Frontispice. 8 feuillets. 532 pages. 4 planches gravées. (24,5x18cm). Plein veau de l'époque. Dos à nerfs orné avec pièce de titre de maroquin rouge. Tranches mouchetées. Reliure frottée. Accidents et accrocs au dos, aux coiffes et sur les plats. Coins émoussés. Quelques feuillets un peu brunis. Quelques rousseurs, taches et traces de mouillure. Edition peu commune bien complète des quatre livres. Corneille avait entrepris cet ouvrage à la demande de son confesseur et probablement aussi à celle de la reine Anne d'Autriche. La première édition, donnée en 1651, était de format in-12 et ne contenait que les vingt premiers chapitres. Les docteur de l'Eglise vantaient cet excellent ouvrage, où la poésie parle si purement le langage des saints. Exemplaire bien complet de sa superbe illustration composée d'un frontispice et de quatre planches gravées par François Chauveau (Béatitudes, Annonciation, Jésus avec deux apôtres, Cêne). Curieux exemplaire, sur lequel la première adresse: "A Rouen, pour Robert Ballard, seul imprimeur du Roy, 1658" a été remplacée à l'époque par celle d'André Soubron. Assez bon exemplaire en reliure du temps. Mérite une restauration.

        L'aspagyrie naturelle des fontaines minérales de Selles mandement de la Voute en Viverez, & l'anatomie, vertus & proprietez d'icelles. Où sont adjoustez les traitez descrits en la page suivante.

      Vallence, Louis Muguet, s.d. [1656], pleine reliure en daim, dos à nerfs, très lég. manques de peau sur le plat sup. -2 lignes manuscrites à l'encre rouge dans la marge sup. du f. de titre ; petite tache d'encre p. 92, sans gravité ; pp. 8 et 9 courtes de marge sup. - in-12 de (22)-124-(6) pp. ; Exemplaire de Jacques de Bane, chanoine de l'église de Viviers, avec son ex-libris sur la page de titre. Une branche de la famille de Bane était établie à La Voulte (cf. Armorial du Vivarais).Edition originale. Rarissime.Michel Chomarat, Répertoire bibliographique Rhône-Alpes, p. 136 ; Brun-Durand II-p. 228 ; Carrère, Cat. raisonné des ouvrages qui ont été publiés sur les eaux minérales, p. 458 ; Abbé A. Roche, Essai de bibliographie voultaine, pp. 140-142 ; le CCFr. ne localise que les exmplaires de la B.N.F. et ceux de la B.M. de Lyon et de Valence ; le Worldcat n'en recense aucun autre exemplaire.L'auteur est "né probablement à Marsanne dans la Drôme comme son père, autre Gaspard de Perrin ; il était établi en qualité de docteur, dans cette localité en 1657 et il dit dans [son] ouvrage [.] qu'il venait d'être guéri par les eaux de Celles, âgé de 65 ans ; il serait donc né vers 1591." (Abbé A. Roche).Celles-les-Bains se situe près de La Voulte-sur-Rhône, dont Henri de Levis-Ventadour était le co-seigneur.Gaspard de Perrin identifie trois sources différentes, Levi, Cicéron et Ventadour ; toutes trois aux vertus inégalées et chacune avec ses prescriptions. Leur composition chimique explique leur efficacité : elles "passent par le vitriol et se chargent d'un sel et esprit vitriolique emprégnés de son soulphre narcotique". Ces eaux sont non seulement "des remèdes pour la guérison des maladies et conservation de la santé", mais elles sont aussi des produits de beauté dont l'auteur veut bien partager le secret. Il indique trois moyens "des plus exquis, bénins, naturels et sans corrosion" pour "blanchir la face et conserver le teint".En outre, l'ouvrage contient diverses autres pièces : une dédicace de l'auteur à Henri de Levis, Duc de Ventadour, Comte de La Voulte, daté du 1er novembre 1656 à Marsanne ; une première réponse de Ventadour, datée du 9 décembre 1656 à Paris ; une deuxième réponse du même, datée du 16 mars 1657 à Paris ; divers poèmes adressés à l'auteur, l'un d'entre eux signé de Godemard, Me apothicaire à La Voulte ; une adresse de l'auteur "au lecteur iudicieux" et une autre à son livre ; une lettre de Perrin à Messieurs les chirurgiens et pharmaciens de La Voulte.

      The Hague, Adrian Vlacq, 1656/57, 8, (22), 328 (330), 14 pp., 44 Kupfertafeln, feiner Pergamenteinband der Zeit trotz eines fehlenden Blattes ein feines Exemplar. Second Edition, rare first Octavo Edition of "Cheiroplotheke Seu D. Joannis Sculteti, Physici &amp Chyrurgi apud Ulmenses olim felicissimi Armamentarium Chirurgicvm XLIII Tabulis Aeri elegantissimè incisis, nec ante hac visis, exornatum. Opus posthumum, Medicinæ pariter ac Chirurgiæ Studiosis perutile [et] necessarium, In quo tot, tam Veterum ac Recentiorum Instrumenta ab Authore correcta, quàm noviter ab ipso inventa, ... Cum triplici ... Indice." "Schultes is famous for his illustrations of surgical procedures and instruments. The first edition (1655) was the only edition published in folio format. This was the most popular surgical text of the 17th century." "Schultes (1595-1645), born at Ulm on the Danube, was a pupil of Hieronymus Fabricius ab Aquapendente (as was William Harvey) and Adriaan van de Spiegel at Padua where he received a doctorate in medicine, surgery, and philosophy.... His 'arsenal of surgery' was published a decade after his death by his nephew. The work contains accounts of surgical instruments, methods of bandaging and splinting, numerous operative procedures including amputation of the breast, obstetrical delivery by forceps, and one hundred case reports." Iowa 466 "The Armamentarium Chirurgicum, upon which the fame of Scultetus rests, is a remarkable book for its time. It contains a complete catalogue of all known surgical instruments, of the methods of bandaging and splinting, and a vast number of operative procedures, all of which are illustrated in graphic detail by means of numerous plates. In addition it contains a large number of case reports which give evidence of his surgical daring and skill." Zimmerman and Veith. Great Ideas in the History of Surgery. pp.250-251. This copy has the extra engraved title dated 1657 which is often missing in other copies, but. As noting is perfect, this charming book is lacking one leaf (pp.125-126, but the plate 35 (p.126) is added as facsimile.

        LES SAINCTES PRIERES DE L'AME CHRESTIENNE

      Jean Henault, Paris 1656 - 164 x 109 mm. (6 1/2 x 4 1/4"). [106] leaves. Fifth Edition. Contemporary black morocco, covers with blind-stamped armorial device of the Buade family (three griffin legs, surmounted by a crown), raised bands, two silver metal clasps, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. ENGRAVED THROUGHOUT in calligraphic script with elaborate borders and images of Christ, Mary, and the Seven Deadly Sins, all by Moreau. Front pastedown with bookplate of Roger Paultre. Bonacini 1228 (1644 ed.); For the binding: Guigard II, 130. Joints and extremities minimally rubbed (and well masked with dye), fore margin of most leaves faintly thumbed (title page just slightly more so), lower right marginal corner of a dozen leaves with small, very weak dampstain, final page with adhesion at inner margin, other trivial defects, but still quite an appealing copy, the binding solid, lustrous, and scarcely worn, and the engraved text bright, smooth, and clean. This is an especially charming engraved prayer book that belonged to a very prominent 17th century French family. Moreau (ca. 1600-48) was a calligrapher and writing-master who also published writing manuals. He designed a special cursive type called "lettres financières," which he dedicated to Louis XIII, who made him a printer in ordinary in 1643. The present item does not use his moveable type, but employs engraved prayers done on separate copperplates, which were then fitted with any one of 16 ornamental borders, featuring birds, mermaids, cherubs, fruits, and flowers. In addition to the borders, there are also a number of engravings of flowers or fruit, as well as images of saints, scenes from the life of Christ, royal arms, and portrayals of the Seven Deadly Sins personified (envy is particularly powerful as a Medusa-like creature accompanied by a mangy dog). According to Guigard, this copy was bound with the arms of Antoine de Buade, Comte de Palluau, counsellor of state for Henri IV, and first steward of the royal household. He had a substantial library, but he died in 1633 (and his son Henri died in 1622), so this must have been bound for his grandson Louis de Buade, Comte de Frontenac et de Palluau (1625-98), who was known as a bibliophile himself and who served as Governor General of New France from 1672-82 and from 1689-98. Roger Paultre was both a collector and respected scholar of French emblem books and other illustrated works; his collection was sold in 1993 at Drouot.
