        Neue Berg-Ordnung des Eisslebisch- und Mansfeldischen Bergwercks

      Woodcut printer's device on title. 19 leaves, one blank leaf. Small folio, later 18th-century half-sheep & speckled boards, spine gilt. Eisleben: A. Koch, 1674.A most interesting volume containing a printed edition of mining laws of 1674 and three manuscript copies of mining laws of the 16th century, assembled by and bound for August Ferdinand, Graf von Veltheim (1741-1801). He was appointed in 1790 by Empress Catherine of Russia as general inspector of mines and saltworks in the western regions of the Russian empire. Geology and mining were favorite subjects and at his home in Harbke, he formed an important library along with a fine cabinet of minerals and fossils. His books, with their characteristic oval ownership stamp on the verso of the title of his son Röttger, still appear on the market with some regularity. They are always in very fine condition.Eisleben and Mansfeld in the eastern foothills of the Harz Mountains were important mining towns, where silver and copper mining took place from the beginning of the 13th century. The 52 sections in the printed collection of laws (dated 28 October 1673) - no copy in North America according to WorldCat - concern surveying, assaying standards, weighing instruments, labor laws, wages, division of profits, etc., etc. They reflect the practical concerns and problems of operating a mine.Also bound-in is an 18th-century manuscript copy, written in one neat hand on 63 leaves, of three mining laws of the 16th century: "Neue Ordnung und Reformation der Züsammensetzung Eislebishen und Mansfeldischen Bergkwergs…Actum Dresden, den 26 Julii Anno 1568;" "Volget der ander Umbzüge der Mansfeldischen Bergkgrentze…Anno 10, 11, und 12 Septembris 1571," and "Protestatio beider Bergkvoigt, Richter und Geschwornen Mansfeldischen und Eislebischen Berges an alle Graven zu Mansfeld [1572]." I do not know if these have been printed.Very fine condition.

        Discorsi accademici ... Alla S.C.R. maestà dell'imperatrice Eleonora

      per Gio. Battista Merlo, 1674. Cm. 25, pp. (56) 730 + 1 c.b. Con una bella antiporta incisa in rame fuori testo; capilettera ornati, bei finalini e numerose testatine xilografiche. Graziosa legatura novecentesca in mezza pergamena con titoli manoscritti al dorso e ampie punte; carta marmorizzata ai piatti. Alone all'occhietto e in modo trascurabile al margine interno delle prime e ultime carte. Esemplare fresco e ben conservato, ancora in barbe e stampato su carta forte. Giovanni Pindemonte, marchese veronese vissuto nel XVII secolo, fu giureconsulto e criminalista. Diede alle stampe, oltre a questi Discorsi, solo tre opere: "Panegirico della cicala di Anacreonte" (1673), "Orationi criminali e panegiriche" (1679) e "Oratione di Giovanni Pindemonte giuresconsulto" (1643). Quest'opera, l'ultima pubblicata dell'Autore veronese, è divisa in diciotto discorsi. Dall'indice: "Che si possano generare, come rane, uomini dalla terra", "Che sia habitata la luna", "Che la luna non sia habitata", "Dell'essenza dell'amore", "Della lingua, e Ortografia Toscana". Molto interessanti i numerosi capitoli di taglio astronomico-cosmografico dedicati alla possibilità che la luna possa essere o meno abitata. Così Piantanida (3492): "Interess. le osservazioni lunari (in gran parte fantasiose), solari (macchie del sole), astronomiche, cosmografiche, magiche, amorose, i riferimenti a mostri immaginari, ecc. ecc.

        AN ACCOUNT OF TWO VOYAGES TO NEW ENGLAND.

      London: Printed for Giles Widdows, 1674. - [8],215, [1], [8], 227-279,[3] pp (with errors in pagination as issued). License leaf with woodcut printer's device preceding the title (often lacking), errata leaf following the dedication and 3pp. advertisements in the rear. 16mo. 18th-century calf, gilt, spine gilt with raised bands, green morocco label, combed marbled endpapers. Small paper flaw in S2 with loss to a few letters, else very good. First edition of a scarce 17th- century description of New England, including valuable observations on the natural history of the region: "the earliest work on the Natural History of New England" (Rich). Josselyn visited America in 1638-39, and again from 1663 to 1671. Though parts of his history are based on inaccurate references, the book is renowned for its first-hand observations of the natural history of New England and the description of the situation with the Indians prior to King Philip's War in 1675. Josselyn's work includes an herbal, with numerous botanical, as well as medical and surgical descriptions and is considered the "first complete description of the flora and fauna of the Middle Atlantic and New England States" (Winsor). The cranberry, wild turkey, blueberry and other northeastern species are fully described here for the first time. Besides its treatment of New England, the work is of considerable value for its fine contemporary English account of New Netherland, i.e. New York. The work also deals with the practicalities and provisions necessary for the long sea-voyage. It contains as well a catalogue of tools and supplies essential to begin a new life in the colonies.

[Hieronymus] von Hensbergen sculp. (fl.1660-1690), with the light of God touching the creatures (all kinds!) of the Earth in the "Ex Aqua Seminibus", diagram (p.221), errata. Original [?] paper boards, untrimmed with fore-edges of varying sizes, book-stamp of the Furstenbibliothek on verso of title-page and last leaf. A very good copy. RARE. First Edition of this work exemplifying iatrochemistry. VON DER BECKE ON ACIDS IN THE BODY, AND THEIR ATTENDANT CHEMICAL REACTIONS. "First Edition of v. d. Becke's principal work, dedicated to the Royal Society. The author, a German physician (1648-84) was an exponent of Iatrochemistry, a medical theory ascribing all ills to the presence of various acidic bodies in the human body and therefore basing all therapeutic action on chemical reactions provoked by various medicaments. Apparently unknown to the usual authorities." – Duveen. "David von der Beck followed Helmont in holding that water or alkali was the matter of all things, while seeds or fire or acid were the formal principal. He was interested in the strange force of imagination and the causes of monstrosities. He believed that seeds contained specific ideas, and that ideas or characters remained in the bodies of animals after death. He accepted the resuscitation of plants." – Thorndike. This book was reviewed in the Philosophical Transactions IX, 60-4; JS VI (1678) 442-46. Other printings: Another issued was published in 1683/84. That 'enlarged' edition collates in 423 pp. A 12mo issue, that Thorndike calls a third edition, was printed in 1688 and collates to 516 pages.

Tracce di tarlo limitate alla legatura; bruniture e fioriture tipiche della carta tedesca del tempo, peraltro esemplare nel complesso genuino e in buono stato di conservazione. Ahasver Fritsch (1629-1701), giureconsulto tedesco nativo di Mucheln, insegnò all'Università di Jena in Turingia e scrisse alcune fortunate opere, principalmente di taglio giuspubblicistico e romanistico. Queste tre opere, tutte in edizione originale, sono molto interessanti. La prima descrive la disciplina del transito delle truppe militari: modalità di passaggio e cause di negazione del transito secondo le consuetudini, il diritto romano e il diritto imperiale. La seconda è dedicata agli archivi pubblici e al ruolo degli archivisti; secondariamente alle cancellerie, uffici fondamentali nella conservazione degli atti processuali. La terza opera, anch'essa interessantissima, è dedicata alle armi da getto (missiles): denominazione, origine e propagazione dell'uso, disciplina nel diritto romano (novella De Consulibus). Opere rare e pressoché sconosciute nel mercato antiquario. Cfr. Kvk..

        De Naturae Mirabilibus. Quaestiones Academicae.

      Hafniae (Copenhagen), Petrus Haubold, 1674. 4to. Contemporary full mottled calf with five raised bands to richly gilt spine. Upper and lower part of spine worn and restored. Some overall wear and a bit of worming. Internally evenly browned. Contemporary notes in neat hand to front free end-paper and additional information about contents in same hand to title-page. Title-page printed in red/black. (8), 200 pp. + engraved plate depicting snow crystals. ¶ Exceedingly scarce first edition of this collection of 13 academic treatises on the wonders of nature. This magnificent work, by one of the greatest Danish polymaths of all time, epitomizes the the range of topics on which Bartholin wrote. Among the essays and lectures collected here, we have "The study of the Danish language" (1657); "The shape of snow" (1660); "The pores of bodies" (1663); "On Cartesian physics" (1664); "On nature" (1666); "On judgement and memory" (1667); "On experiment" (1668); "On physical hypotheses" (1669); "On the shape of bodies" (1671); "Secrets of the sciences" (1673).Rasmus Bartholin (also known in the latinized form Erasmus Bartholinus) (1625 - 1698) was a famous Danish scientist, physician and grammarian, famous primarily for his discovery ) of the double refraction of a light ray by Iceland spar (calcite), for writing the first grammar of the Danish language, and for his work on Descartes' analytic geometry."Erasmus Bartholin's father was Caspar Berthelsen Bartholin... There were six sons in the family, and Erasmus had a brother, Thomas Bartholin, who was nine years older than himself. These two brothers went on to become equally famous. Erasmus received his first education from private tutors, then he attended a Latin school. He entered the University of Copenhagen in 1642, receiving his B.A. in 1644 and an M.A. in 1647. From 1645 he studied mathematics at the University of Leiden, travelling to France in 1651 but then going to Italy where he studied at a number of places including Padua from where he received a medical degree in 1654. From 1656 he was professor of geometry at the University of Copenhagen but transferred to become an extraordinary professor of medicine in the following year. In 1671 he was appointed to an ordinary chair of medicine at Copenhagen, a post to held until his death. In 1667 he was appointed Royal Mathematician.He served the University of Copenhagen as dean of the faculty of medicine, librarian, and rector, and was appointed royal physician and privy councillor.Despite being professor of medicine for a long period, he wrote relatively little on that topic. In terms of the number of publications, mathematics was the largest part of his work, but his work in this area is not of great importance. In fact he is best known for work in yet another area, for he was the discoverer of the double refraction of light. Bartholin edited Introduction to the geometry of Descartes by van Schooten and also translated Optics of Larissa into Latin. Every year between 1664 and 1674 he produced a book Dissertatio de problematibus geometricis. This consisted of theses which he had proposed for his students to defend. In the sixth such book, published in 1672, he gave a proof of what is known as the second problem of Debeaune, formulated in a letter to Mersenne written in 1638. The problem is the first example of an inverse tangent problem which in modern notation results in requiring the solution to the differential equation dy/dx = (x - y)/a, y(0) = 0.This has solution y = x + a(e-x/a - 1). Descartes solved Debeaune's problem in 1639. Bartholin considered the problem in geometric form. Pedersen suggests that Bartholin's proof may actually be Debeaune's original proof which we know he sent to Descartes. Bartholin could well have come across the proof in papers which Debeaune sent him for safe keeping shortly before his death in 1652. To see the range of topics on which Bartholin wrote, consider his book De naturae mirabilibus quaestiones academicae which he published in 1674. This consists of essays and lectures written over a number of years such as: The study of the Danish language (1657); The shape of snow (1660); The pores of bodies (1663); On Cartesian physics (1664); On nature (1666); On judgement and memory (1667); On experiment (1668); On physical hypotheses (1669); On the shape of bodies (1671); and Secrets of the sciences (1673). Bartholin wrote a large number of mathematical works but he is best remembered for his discovery of the double refraction of light through a crystal of Iceland spar which had been gathered in an expedition to Iceland in 1668. He wrote his text Experimenta crystalli Islandici disdiaclastici quibus mira & insolita refractio detegitur on the geometry of crystals in 1669. The two rays he called solita and insolita and he showed that both were produced by refraction. During his experiments, Bartholin also observed that when the crystals of Iceland spar are rotated about their axis, one of the two images moves in a circle around the other. This is strong evidence that the crystals are somehow splitting the light into two different beams. Bartholin's explanation was based on Descartes' theory of light along with his idea that there were two sets of "pores" in the crystal. However, the true explanation is that the crystal splits the light into two plane-polarized beams. He observed the comets of 1664 and 1665, and made other astronomical observations, publishing his descriptions of these events in De cometis anni 1664 et 1665 opusculum (1665). Bartholin also prepared for publication the observations of Tycho Brahe. In both these pieces of work in astronomy he was assisted by Ole Romer. Bartholin is also famed for his medical work, in particular his introduction of quinine in the fight against malaria. Some of his medical contributions were made in conjunction with his brother Thomas Bartholin who was a professor of anatomy at the University of Copenhagen from 1646 to 1661. Thomas Bartholin founded the journal Acta medica et philosophica Hafniensia to which Erasmus Bartholin contributed papers." (J J O'Connor and E F Robertson, St. Andrews). Thesaurus: 348.

La Defense du Droit de Marie Therese d'Austriche, Reine de France a la Succession des Couronnes d'Espagne. Paris: Chez Sebastien Mabre-Cramoisy, 1674. [xxiv], 164, [1] pp. 12mo. (5-1/2" x 3"). Contemporary sheep treated to resemble tree-calf, gilt spine with raised bands, speckled edges. Some rubbing to extremities with minor wear to spine ends, corners bumped. Toning to text, faint dampstaining and spotting to a few leaves, internally clean. $1,250. * First edition. The author was the Archbishop of Embrun, later Prince-Archbishop of Metz. Mazarin appointed him ambassador to Venice in 1659. Louis XIV appointed him ambassador to Spain in 1667 to pursue French claims to the Spanish Netherlands in the name of Maria Theresa of Austria (1638-1683), the Spanish Infanta and Queen Consort of Louis XIV. These claims were tenuous and constructed on intricate legal foundations. French jurists argued that the Spanish Netherlands should not go to the still underage heir to the Spanish throne, Charles II of Spain (1661-1700), because he was the issue of the second marriage of Philip IV. Maria Theresa on the other hand was a result of his first marriage and the lands thereby 'devolved' to her and, of course, Louis XIV. France's claims led to the War of devolution (1667-68). Feuillade defends France's claims with an argument grounded in the "fundamental laws of Spain, the examples of past centuries and the solemn judgments of the Royal Council of Castile." A second edition was published in 1699. Both copies are scarce, especially in North America. OCLC locates no copies in North American law libraries.
