Contemporary calf; rebacked, with most of the original gold-tooled backstrip laid down, modern endpapers, and preserving the contemporary marbled flyleaves.

      Cobres, p. 397; Horn & Schenkling 18693; J. Ratcliff, The quest for the invisible: microscopy in the Enlightenment, pp. 64-65; Sabin 74500. First edition of a noteworthy treatise on the nature of cochineal by the Leiden born merchant, Melchior de Ruusscher (1663-1739) in Amsterdam, who was elected fellow of the Royal Society in 1730 following the present bilingual publication in French and Dutch. Following Anthony van Leeuwenhoek's claim that the substance derived from an insect, Ruusscher argued with a friend that cochineal was an insect. "The point of contention changed from a bet into a trial, appealing to the highest authorities. The disagreement reached Spain, which appointed a commission to inquire on the nature of the Mexican cochineal. Three notarial certificates made before the judiciary and vouched for by eight persons in handling of cochineal were sent to Europe. They testified that cochineal were living animals. Cochineal was neither a fruit nor a seed, but a mere insect that did not undergo metamorphosis … Present in the court, the microscope held an important place within the juridical apparatus, because it substantiated written testimonies by providing a set of iconographic proofs that demonstrated, through morphological evidence, the animal nature of the cochineal. It would seem therefore, that the microscope's first ever appearance in a court of law was around 1728. … The outsourced judgement of cochineal made an impression on scholars such as Breyn and Réaumur… " (Ratcliff).Water stains throughout, but otherwise in good condition.

         Traitez de l'équilibre des liqueurs et de la pesanteur de la masse de l'air. Contenant l'explication des causes de divers effets de la nature, qui n'avoient pas esté bien connus jusques ici, particulièrement de ceux que l'on avoit attribuez à l'horreur de Vuide.

      Paris, Deprez, 1663. - In-12 de 14 feuillets non chiffrés, 232 pages, 4 ff. de table avec deux planches dépliantes. Très bon état intérieur. Ex-libris Etienne Cluzel. Superbe reliure en maroquin rouge à la Du Seuil, dos à nerfs richement orné, double filet sur les coupes, roulette intérieure, tranches dorées. Rare édition originale publiée l'année qui a suivi la mort de Pascal, par son beau-frère Florin Périer. La fameuse expérience du Puy de Dôme, répétée à Paris au sommet de la Tour Saint-Jacques, permit à Pascal d'affirmer que la pression atmosphérique variait avec l'altitude. Cette découverte spectaculaire fut la dernière victoire de l'auteur contre "l'horreur du vuide". L'entrée de sa soeur à Port Royal, l'accident de Neuilly dont il réchappa par miracle, le portèrent à des études "plus sérieuses" et l'éloignèrent tellement des choses de ce monde qu'il négligea de publier cet ouvrage. Après sa mort son beau-frère et collaborateur Périer s'en chargea. Très bel exemplaire. Tchemerzine IX, 64. [Attributes: First Edition]

      - Amsterdam, Gillis Joosten Saeghman, 1663.4to. Old wrappers. With large woodcut on title-page, full-page woodcut by C.S. Vichem on verso of title-page and 16 fine woodcuts in text (15 within two ornamental woodcut side borders). 52 pp.First edition published in 1598. - Classic account of the three earliest Dutch exploration voyages (1594, 1595, 1596) in search of a northeast passage by Willem Barentsz, two in company with Jan Huygen van Linschoten, the celebrated traveler to the East. The author, Gerrit de Veer, had taken part in the second and third voyage. During the third voyage Barendsz and his crew members were iced in and forced to winter over in Novaya Zemlya in a wooden cabin ('Het behouden Huis'). Trapped from August 26, 1596, to June 14, 1597, they were finally able to sail in open boats some 1600 miles during which they battled continuously against marauding polar bears and pack ice. Barendsz had taken ill and died five days after their escape from the arctic wastes. In 1871 the expedition's winter quarters were found along with many artifacts. Though a northeast passage was not found, the expeditions were considerable successful for the discovery of Spitsbergen in 1596 and for their reports of the abundance of right whales off Spitsbergen, encouraging the start of Dutch arctic whaling. A major work of Arctic exploration and the Dutch quest for a Northeast passage to the Orient. Pp. 51-52 contains: Journael van Herry Hutson, gedaen in den iare 1609 op het believen van de bewint-hebberen van de Oost-Indische Geoctroyeerde Compagnie uytgesonden, om de passagie by het noort-oosten . om naer China te soeken (Landwehr, VOC, 355). In 1609 Henry Hudson was chosen by merchants of the Dutch East India Company (VOC) to find an easterly passage to Asia with the ship Halve Maen. He could not complete the specified eastward route because ice blocked the passage, as with all previous such voyages, and he turned the ship around in mid-May while somewhere east of Norway's North Cape. At that point, acting outside his instructions, Hudson pointed the ship west and decided to try to seek a westerly passage through North America. - (Browned, lower side title-page cut short with loss of some words). - Rare.Tiele 1135; Cf.
