      Neapoli, Apud Novellum de Bonis 1662 - Folio, 31 cm. Contemporary limp vellum, ink spine title. Soiling to vellum. Front hinge tender. [12], 328, [19] pp, engraved portrait on title. Printed in double columns. Spotting and toning to pages. Marginal dampstain to first 90 leaves. A rare and scarce Italian treatise on communicable diseases and epidemics. After the Naples Plague of 1656-57, there was an surge of medical treatises printed in Italy. Notably, Athanasius Kircher's, "Scrutinium physico-medicum contagiosae luis quae dicitur pestis" Rome in 1658 and Tommaso Cornelio's "Progumnasmata physica," in 1663. It was only with the forcible quarantine of the poorer districts, and the extraordinary efforts of Martinus Ludheim that the bubonic plague was eradicated in the Kingdom. Of 20,000 inhabitants of the city of Naples, the plague took 7,000-12,000 lives. Mortality rates were an incredible 870,000-1.25 million within the Kingdom of Naples; 30–43 percent of the population.

         De Homine Figuris et latinate donatus a Florentio Schuyl, Inclytæ Urbis Sylvæ Ducis Senatore, & ibidem Philosophiæ Professore.

      Lugduni Batavorum (Leyden), Apud Petrum Leffen & Franciscum Moyardum, 1662. 4to. Contemporary full calf with gilt title-laebl to spine. (36), 121, (1) pp. + 10 plates. Complete with all 56 woodcut and engraved text-illustrations (many of which are full-page) and the 10 full-page engraved plates (several folded), one of which is the heart-plate with the 6 moveable parts, the Cardiac-flaps (of which only the smallest is missing). One folded plate cropped at fore-margin. ¶ First edition of Descartes' seminal treatise on man, the first European textbook of physiology, constituting an epochal work of modern thought, defining the mechanism of man as it does. "In the Treatise of man, Descartes did not describe man, but a kind of conceptual models of man, namely creatures, created by God, which consist of two ingredients, a body and a soul. "These men will be composed, as we are, of a soul and a body. First I must describe the body on its own; then the soul, again on its own; and finally I must show how these two natures would have to be joined and united in order to constitute men who resemble us"." (SEP). This highly influential work was the first to present a coherent description of bodily responses in neurophysiological terms that are still, to a wide extent, accepted today. In his attempt to solve the central question around which almost all philosophical thought had revolved since the time of Aristotle, what the relation between the soul and the body actually is, Descartes came to create a milestone work of physiology which changed the entire trajectory of modern physiological conceptions. "Without Descartes, the seventeenth-century mechanization of physiological conceptions would have been inconceivable." (DSB). He believed that the relationship between the soul and the body was mediated by the brain and the nervous system, and his seminal attempts to explain neural mechanisms drew a great deal on the engineering developments of his time (eg. the hydraulic automata that had been installed at the Versailles). He developed a hydro-mechanical theory of how the soul controlled the contraction of muscle through the intermediary of the pineal and the cerebral ventricles, and he produced an explanation of how it received, through the nerves from the periphery, signals that gave rise to sensation. Descartes' theories quickly spread throughout Europe, and the work in which he had developed them, his "De Homine" became extremely influential. This posthumously published work was actually written in the 1630's, but after the condemnation of Galilei in 1633, Descartes did not dare publish it; "although it thus had to await posthumous publication in the 1660's, his writing of the Traité de l'homme proved extremely important in the further maturation of Descartes's physiological conceptions." (D.S.B. p.62). "Some time after Descartes's death in 1650, his French manuscript, copies of which had circulated among his friends and correspondents, was edited and published. The first version was a Latin translation (De homine) by Florentius Schuyl in 1662, the second the now better known 'original' French version (Traité de l'homme) edited by Descartes's self-appointed literary executor Claude Clerselier in 1664. In the seventeenth century the 1662 Latin version was probably much more widely read than the French text. There were problems for the editors of both versions. Firstly, there were differences between the manuscripts: Clerselier in Paris claimed that his version was Descartes's own, that the others were 'corrupt' and that Schuyl had been 'misled' by them. However, a more important difficulty was raised because it was clear that the text was intended to be illustrated - Descartes refers to figures and to features within these labelled by letters. But no set of figures accompanied the manuscripts. Both editors have left quite detailed accounts in their long prefaces - little treatises in themselves. Here I consider only Schuyl, the editor of the Latin De homine. Schuyl (1619-69) was a professor of philosophy in the town of 's-Hertogenbosch in the Netherlands, the country in which Descartes was living during the writing of Le monde. Two of the author's friends had copies of the manuscript that they supplied to Schuyl, and with one of these were included two sketches of illustrations apparently in Descartes's own hand. These Schuyl included. One of them represents the medial and lateral rectus muscles in the orbit, which deflect the eye nasally and temporally. The other figures Schuyl had to have made and, since he mentions no one else, one supposes that he designed them himself." (IML Donaldson, J R Coll Physicians Edinb 2009; 39:375-6).Wellcome II:453; Osler 931; Garrison and Morton 574. Waller only has a later edition.

[4] ff. ; 578 pp. ; [2] pp. ; 286 pp. Unique édition, peu commune, de cette très importante source pour l'histoire de la condamnation des fameuses cinq propositions extraites d'une lecture sommaire de l'Augustinus par Isaac Habert et pour celle du premier jansénisme : Louis Gorin de Saint-Amour, docteur de Sorbonne, était l'émissaire choisi par les Arnaldiens de la Sorbonne pour défendre à Rome l'ouvrage du docteur d'Ypres dans l'examen qui en était fait. Il se rendit sur place, argumenta pendant les deux ans que durèrent les tractations entre les différentes instances romaines, mais, en partie par manque de connaissance des hommes de la Curie et de la psychologie romaine, il ne sut pas actionner à temps les bons ressorts, en dépit des réticences assez nettes d'Innocent X à entrer dans les voies d'une condamnation. Cette dernière eut cependant lieu en 1653 par la fameuse bulle Cum occasione.Co-rédigé avec Arnauld, sa monumentale relation donne le menu des négociations ainsi que quantité de pièces annexes regroupées en pagination séparée à la fin. Mouillure quelques feuillets, ex-libris manuscrit partiellement effacé sur la page de titre. 313 LH0517

Jego prace, w tym dotyczące fizjonomiki, decyzją papieża Pawła IV w roku 1559 trafiły na listę ksiąg zakazanych. Powodem niełaski, był fakt przyjmowania wpływu na człowieka sił innych niż boskie. Decyzja papieża wbrew jego intencjom, przyczyniła autorowi wiele popularności, zwłaszcza wśród innowierców.

"No botanical or zoological drawings are extant. An impression of them however is conveyed by his 'Metamorphosis Naturalis' with its 126 superb engravings. The book describes the results of his investigation into the metamorphosis of insects, accompanied by a large amount of original observations, some of which were prompted by experiments with his own cultures. The book stood model for several other celebrated treatises on the subject, for example Maria Sibylla Merian" Segal: Flowers and nature, p. 198). Vgl. Cf.

         The Unlawfulness of Subjects taking up arms against their soveraigne : in what case soever ; together with answers to all objections scattered in their several books.

      London : Printed by Thomas Mabb for William Sheares 1662 - Small octavo. Third edition. 141, 152-170, 137-168 pages. Lacking prelims and frontis portrait. Contemporary calf, paper spine label. Foxing and toning. University of Bridgeport stamps to page ends. Originally published in 1643 as a defense of Charles II. Diggs's argued that subjects should provide passive obedience. Even though Diggs does not support the taking up of arms against the king, he does accept that the government is not perfect and that rebels are able to manipulate that aspect in order to get others to rise against it. He notes that the king's position is part of the natural order and God's will. No matter how flawed the government itself is, Digges argues, the alternative of chaos and violence would be much worse.

         Idée de la perfection de la peinture demonstrée par les principes de l'art, et par des exemples conformes aux observations que Pline et Quintilien ont faites sur les plus célèbres tableaux des anciens peintres, mis en paralèlle à quelques ouvrages de nos meilleurs peintres modernes, Leonard de Vinci, Raphael, Jules Romain, et le Poussin.

      Jacques Ysambart,, Le Mans 1662 - First edition, rare, of the first systematic theoretical treatise on painting in France by a friend and patron of Nicolas Poussin. No-one before Chambray had had attempted to establish the intellectual foundations of the art of painting, or the permanent and universal criteria for judging pictures. Earlier or contemporary writings such as those by Hilaire Pader, Abraham Bosse, Abbot de Marolles, Félibien or even Dufresnoy do not share either its systematic or quasi-doctrinal qualities.'[Fréart's] ideas on art were crystallised in the Idée de la perfection de la peinture, published in 1662. Chambray intended this as a rule book for art and a guide for contemporary painters. He emphasized the importance of strict, rigorous geometry as truth in art. The Idée served as a manifesto against the sensual and the purely visual, as opposed to intellectual, in painting. Chambray was devoted to the art of Poussin, in which he saw the perfect realization of the classical ideal. He strongly criticized Michelangelo for what he considered extravagant and capricious compositions; he also condemned Rubens, Caravaggio, Tintoretto and Veronese for encouraging a libertine art' (Grove). The work refers extensively to Marcontonio Raimondi's engravings of Raphael's Judgement of Paris, Massacre of the Innocents and Deposition from the Cross, even then described by him as 'rares et curieuses', and he recommends the reader furnish himself with copies of these prints in order to follow his argument. It considers in turn the five fundamental principles that the Ancients apparently observed, and that Chambray finds in Junius' De pictura, as follows: the invention, the proportion, the couleur, the mouvements and the collocation. It begins with a glossary of terms: Estampe, Tramontains, Esleve, Esquisse, Attitude, Pellegrin.Fréart de Chambray (1606-1676), a close friend of Nicolas Poussin and brother of his patron, sent the painter a copy in Rome and he was thanked in a letter in 1665: 'I am delighted that you were the first one in France to have opened the eyes of those who until then had only seen through the eyes of others'. Fréart de Chambray was a major artistic influence at the court of Louis XIV and had already published in French works of Euclid Palladio, Vitruvius, Leonardo da Vinci. The Idée was translated into English by John Evelyn as An Idea of the Perfection of Painting in 1668.This copy is from the collection of French novelist André Malraux (1901-76), with a pencil note to that effect. 4to (220 × 160 mm), pp. [24], 134, [6], complete with blank leaf [A4], woodcut and typographical ornaments. Light stain to blank lower margins of first 4 leaves (including title) and some very light browning towards the end, deleted early ownership inscription to title. Contemporary red morocco, gilt, panelled spine with 5 raised bands, gilt edges. Rubbed, but still a handsome copy.

XVI, por su combinación de imagen, ciencia y variedad. Los Teatros de máquinas se acogían al género mayor de los Teatros, elencos que podían serlo de cualquier asunto (cabe recordar el Teatro Moral con los grabados de van Veen, ver nuestras refs. C-0393 y C-0592), cuyo común denominador era ser colecciones de grabados que deseaban ilustrar al lector sobre el asunto compendiado. Georg Böckler, arquitecto e ingeniero en Nüremberg, quiso presentar en esta obra la mecánica práctica conveniente para diferentes actividades centrándose especialmente en los molinos y las máquinas hidráulicas, sobre todo, las bombas de agua. Para ello acudió, como el mismo señala en el prólogo, a tener en cuenta dos obras. La primera, la obra de Jacobo de Strada (romano afincado al servicio de los emperadores Maximiliano II y Rodolfo II), que hizo publicar su sobrino Octavio de Strada -aunque apareció años después de muerto este- con el título de 'Kunstliche Abriß allerhand Wasser Wind Roß und Handt Mühlen'(1). En este caso, Böckler no solo tuvo en cuenta la obra, sino que además recuperó parte de las planchas con las que se había impreso para emplearlas en la suya propia. Por ejemplo, el grabado de Eberhard Kieser que figura como 133, o el grabado de Schwan que figura como número 8, que aparecían con los números 67 y 86, respectivamente, en el tomo 2 de la obra de los Strada. La segunda obra a la que había acudido Böckler era la tercera parte del 'Theatri machinarum' que Heinrich Zeising publicó en Leipzig entre 1607 y 1614, dedicada a los molinos. En estas obras y, por ende, en la recuperación llevada a cabo por Böckler, los grabados se presentan de un modo novedoso, incorporándole un escenario a las máquinas, así como manipuladores y observadores, para que el lector pudiera hacerse una idea de cómo serían en su aplicación real y pudieran admirarla(2). El propio frontispicio diseñado por Böckler muestra a Arquímedes y a Mecánico abriendo un telón tras el que se aparece una población que se beneficia de numerosos ingenios hidráulicos. El compendio de Böckler incluía también el diseño de máquinas que pudieran garantizar el perseguido 'movimiento perpetuo' (véanse los grabados 150 a 153) o la aplicación de la bastante novedosa bomba contra incendios (grabado 154) inventada unos pocos años antes. Como quiera que las obras de Strada y de Zeisling se habían publicado solo en alemán, tuvieron un mercado y una difusión reducidas, por lo que el éxito obtenido por la obra de Böckler cabría atribuirlo al hecho de que él publicase la suya también en latín. Por eso, siendo que la obra so [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Norimbergae Apud Johan. Andeam Endterum & Wolfgangi Junioris Haeredes 1662 - Thick 4to, 197 x 134 mms., pp. [viii], 722 [723 - 764 index], title-page printed in red and black, engraved vignette on page 125, recently rebound in dark chocolate sheepskin, gilt spine, black leather labels, new end-papers, including two dark brown ones (rather unsympathetic); title-page soiled and frayed, but a so-so to good copy, with the small library stamp of St. Patrick's College Library, Maynooth, on various pages (de-accessioned). The volume contains Digby's "Oratio de Pulvere sympathetico"; Laurentius Straussius's "Epistola ad Comitem Dygbaeum"; Nicolaus Papinus's "Dissertatio de Pulvere Sympathetico"; and Ercius Mohyus' "Pulvis Sympatheticus". Digby first described his well-known weapon-salve, or powder of sympathy, in the discourse alleged to have been delivered at Montpellier in 1658. Its method of employment stamps it as the merest quackery. The wound was never to be brought into contact with the powder, which was merely powdered vitriol. A bandage was to be taken from the wound, immersed in the powder, and kept there till the wound healed. Digby gives a fantastic account of the "sympathetic" principles involved. He says that he learned how to make and apply the drug from a Carmelite who had travelled in the East, and whom he met at Florence in 1622. He first employed it about 1624 to cure James Howell of a wound in his hand, and he adds that James I and Dr. Mayerne were greatly impressed by its efficacy, and that Bacon registered it in his scientific collections.(DNB). Lorenz Strauss [1633-1687] physician, professor of medicine at Giessen, court physician of the Landgrave of Hesse-Darmstadt. He edited the 1660 edition (from which this edition is taken) of Theatrum Sympatheticum. Papin born at Blois practiced medicine there and Alencon, and his death occurred subsequent to 1653. This dissertation was first published at Paris in 1644. Mohyus came from Rondchamp near Liege. He studied medicine and practiced it with credit from1620 to 1654. The Pulvis was first published in 1654. (Information from Heritage Auctions, 2015) Rubin 68. Bruning 2077. Ferchl 531. Ferguson II,440. Caillet 10599. Duveen 574. Rosenthal, Magica, 3265.

Gerardus Johannes Vossius, (Latin), Dutch Gerhard Johann Voss (born 1577, near Heidelberg [Germany]died March 19, 1649, Amsterdam [Netherlands]), Dutch humanist theologian, one of the foremost scholars of the Dutch Republic's "Golden Age". Vossius studied at Leiden, where he made a lasting friendship with the jurist and scholar Hugo Grotius. In 1615 he became regent of the theological college of the States-General at Leiden and soon joined the controversy over Arminianism, a liberal reaction to the Calvinist doctrine of predestination. His mediating role was suspected by the Calvinists, and he resigned his chair in 1619. So great, however, was Vossius's reputation as a scholar that in 1622 he was appointed professor of rhetoric and chronology (later also Greek) at the University of Leiden. He twice refused invitations to Cambridge but accepted a nonresident prebendary at Canterbury offered him by Charles I and Archbishop William Laud. He was installed there in 1629 and received a doctorate of civil law from Oxford. In 1632 Vossius left Leiden to become professor of history at the newly founded Athenaeum at Amsterdam. (

Artists and Engravers: Made by an anonymous engraver after 'Joan Blaeu'. Joan Blaeu (23 September 1596 - 28 May 1673) was a Dutch cartographer. He was born in Alkmaar, the son of cartographer Willem Blaeu. In 1620 he became a doctor of law but he joined the work of his father. In 1635 they published the Atlas Novus (full title: Theatrum orbis terrarum, sive, Atlas novus) in two volumes. Joan and his brother Cornelius took over the studio after their father died in 1638. Joan became the official cartographer of the Dutch East India Company. Around 1649 Joan Blaeu published a collection of Dutch city maps named Tooneel der Steeden (Views of Cities). In 1654 Joan published the first atlas of Scotland, devised by Timothy Pont. In 1662 he reissued the atlas with 11 volumes, and one for oceans. It was also known as Atlas Maior. A cosmology was planned as their next project, but a fire destroyed the studio completely in 1672. Joan Blaeu died in Amsterdam the following year. Condition: Good, given age. Original middle fold, as issued. Sheet overall a little browned and slightly stained. General age-related toning and/or occasional minor defects from handling. Please study scan carefully. Storage location: B60-16 The overall size is ca. 24.5 x 21.7 inch. The image size is ca. 21.3 x 19.2 inch. The overall size is ca. 62.2 x 55.2 cm. The image size is ca. 54 x 48.8 cm.

         Deß Hertzogthumbs Steyer Goldschmidt-Ordnung.

      Graz, Widmannstetter, 1662 - 2 Bll., 16 S. Erste Ausgabe, sehr selten (fehlt auf der ÖNB). - Graff 524 (kennt nur das Exemplar auf der Steiemärkischen Landesbibliothek). - Die erste Handwerksordnung für die steirischen Goldschmiede war 1571 erschienen und ist laut Josef Joos (Das steirische Goldschmiedehandwerk bis ins 19. Jahrhundert. in Kunst und Kunsthandwerk. Jg. 21 / 1919) nicht mehr auffindbar. Diese erste Goldschmiedeordnung war aber bald unbrauchbar und wurde durch jene von Erzherzog Ernst erlassene und 1592 publizierte ersetzt. Diese blieb für lange Zeit in Kraft. Im Jahre 1651 petinionierten die Grazer Goldschmiede um die Bewilligung der 13lötigen Augsburger, an Stelle der üblichen 14lötigen Wiener Silberprobe. Der Kaiser bewilligte am am 10. April 1652 diese Bitte ordnete aber gleichzeitig an, daß nun neben den zwei Zechmeistern auch der Münzwardein die Probe auf den Feingehalt vorzunehmen habe. Die Grazer Goldschmiede lehnten dies aber ab und arbeiteten mit dem 14lötigen Silber weiter. Kaiser Leopold I. bestätigte einige Jahre danach, am 23. Juli 1660, die alte Ordnung, befahl aber am 9. August 1662 einen Neudruck der Grazer Goldschmiedeordnung, der die Resolution vom 10. April 1652 berücksichtigt. Für die ganze Steiermark wird hiermit die 13lötige Silberprobe und für Goldarbeiten die Feine von 16 bis 18 Karat - aber nicht darunter - zugelassen. Im übrigen ist an der Goldschmiedeordnung von 1592 nichts von Belang verändert worden. - Etw. wasserrandig und gebräunt. Exlibris. *** /// *** Copyright: Matthaeus Truppe - Stubenberggasse 7 - A-8010 Graz - +43 316 829552 *** /// *** Sprache: Deutsch Gewicht in Gramm: 400 Kl.-4°. Mod. Pp. (leicht bestoßen).

         White-ladies: or his sacred majesties Most miraculous Preservation, After the battle at worcester, September 3. 1651. Faithfully imparted for the satisfaction of the Nation by Eye-witnesses. By Special Command

      London: Printed for the Author, 1662. 32pp, [1]. With a woodcut frontispiece, trimmed and window-mounted. Recent red morocco, lettered in gilt. A trifle sunned and rubbed, soiling to upper board. Many leaves expertly remounted at gutter, touching text of A2, without loss of sense. Occasional slight shaving to upper margin touching pagination numerals. An anonymous narrative of the tribulations suffered by Charles II following defeat at the Battle of Worcester apparently 'issued by special command', likely in an attempt to profit from the Restoration. The terminal leaf bears a statement from the publisher announcing their intention to print a further volume should this first part find success - it would appear that this did not come to fruition. Rare, with ESTC locating copies of this octavo edition at only two locations in the British Isles (BL and Oxford), and one further in North America (Minnesota). Copies of the quarto edition are recorded at two British locations (BL and Oxford), with none elsewhere. ESTC R219459, Wing W1861.. First octavo edition. 8vo.
