      Paris: Chez Estienne Michallet, 1682. Paris:: Chez Estienne Michallet, 1682., 1682. 12mo. Collation: a4, A-P12, Q2. Pagination: [8], 120, 125-367[*], [1] pp. [* = 363 pages; some pages misnumbered]. Figures. Modern half brown morocco, marbled boards. Very good. RARE. FIRST PRINTED HYPOTHESIS ON THE WAVE THEORY OF LIGHT. First edition of this curious treatise on optics, sound, vision, refraction, color, and 'lumination,' incorporating Ignace Gaston Pardies' previously unpublished treatise on optics and based largely on Aristotelian principles. Divided into three parts: Contains the pt. I: On the properties of light and its movement; pt. II: Comments on vision, including correcting sight with glasses; pt. III: devoted to assisting and improving sight, magnifying glasses, theory of the telescope (p.[vi], 190, 281) and frequently refers to the microscope (pp. 99, 106-7, 180, 186-7, 190-1, 193, 198, 200, 237, 244-8, 251-2, 254, 256-7, 265-6, 280-2, 344-366, etc.). Olivier Darrigol gives an assessment of the text: It is a work in defense of Aristotle's views against neo-atomism as describe by Gassendi and Maignan. Instead their study of sound and light is based on Aristotelian principles. "Ango/Pardies introduced the notion of undulation by means of the picture of a vibrating body that induced alternating compressions and dilations of the contiguous layer of air, followed by similar periodic deformation of the next layer…" (p. 61). They also "introduced some of the main properties of waves by means of the water-wave illustration." In "the case of sound, which they regarded as paradigmatic for other undulations… They indeed pioneered the concept of sound as a compression wave." (pp. 61-2; see Ango p. 26). They rejected the sine law by Maignan [p.88] relating to refraction of undulations. With light Ango/Pardies take the position of periodic vibrating, 'every luminous body breathes' – also using the beating of a heart as an example. Dealing also with color theory they site Aristotle's, De sensu. They support a curious system of corresponding ratios, comparing color to musical consonance, or a "frequency of the undulations." (pp. 63-4). "The first author who explicitly and systematically constructed optics on the basis of analogy with sound and water waves was the Jesuit father Ignace Gaston Pardies, in a now lost manuscript written around 1670 and entitled "On the motion of undulations." His treatise on statics, published in 1673, contains a short description of the intent of his work: first to describe the undulation of water, "a matter of game and entertainment for children, which can be the subject of a very deep meditation for the most skilled philosophers"; and then to treat sound by analogy with these undulations, and light by analogy with sound: - In a conjecture on the propagation of light, we examine whether one could not also suppose that the vehicle of light is some similar motion in a subtler air; and we show indeed that under this hypothesis one would explain in a very natural manner all the properties of light and colors, which are otherwise very difficult to explain; and I hope my reader will enjoy the manner in which the measure of refraction is demonstrated.' – A younger Jesuit, Pierre Ango, inherited Pardies' manuscript and exploited it in the first book of the optical treatise he published in 1682 in Paris. In an introductory letter to this treatise, Ango emphasized the analogy with sound and Pardies' importance in this respect: 'You will see that [this first book] contains every beautiful and solid thing that can be said on the propagation and properties of light, on colors, and even on sounds, about which I write at first in order to ease the conception of what I subsequently say on light. – There I have used some of the thoughts of the later Father Pardies which you believe to be still novel and which are in a better shape than this Father left them in the memoirs which you know I long had in my hands.'" – Olivier Darrigol, A History of Optics from Greek Antiquity to the Nineteenth Century, Oxford University Press, 2012, p. 60. Ignace-Gaston Pardies was a French scientist born in Pau, the son of an advisor at the local assembly. He was a member of the Society of Jesuits, teaching at the Lycée Louis-le-Grand in Paris. He died at 37 years of fever contracted ministering to the prisoners of Bicêtre Hospital, near Paris. Father Ango was a professor of mathematics and physics at the College of La Flèche, Rouen.

         The Natural History of Coffee, Thee, Chocolate, Tobacco. In Four Several Sections; with a Tract of Elder and Juniper-Berries, Shewing How Useful They May Be in Our Coffee-Houses: And Also the Way of Making Mum, With Some Remarks Upon that Liquor

      Christopher Wilkinson, London 1682 - First edition. 36, [4] pp. Collation: A-E^4. 8vo. A short work on the history of coffee, tea, chocolate and tobacco, with instructions on the brewing of mum, a kind of fir-tree liquor. Published anonymously and sometimes attributed to John Chamberlayne, though the Arents catalogue notes that Chamberlayne was not born until 1666. The author is somewhat disposed against tobacco ("it Intoxicates, Inflames, Vomits, and Purges") and claims to have killed several cats in the course of his investigations into the toxic effects of the "Oyl of Tobacco." On coffee, the author notes its benefits in treating "Headaches, Dizziness, Lethargies, and Catarrhs" but when combined in cases "where the temperament is hot," can paralyze men to the point of impotence ("they become unfit for the sports, and excercises of the Bed, and their Wives recreations") and notes that for that very reason Persians drink coffee as a form of birth control. Tea is touted as a cure for headaches, sleepiness, and even as a preventive to drunkenness if taken before a bout of drinking. Evidently the author was such a proponent of tea that he admits to learning from experience that when taken in excess, tea, like alcohol, causes vomiting. Chocolate is praised as a sort of superfood, preventing all manner of disease, improving the disposition, and greatly increasing fertility "? and I do not doubt, but you London Gentlemen, do value [chocolate] above all your Cullises and Jellies, your Anchoves, Bononia Sawsages, your Cock, or Lamb-stones, your Soys, your Ketchups and Caveares, your Cantharides, and your Whites of Egges ?"

         Poems, &c. Written upon several occasions, and to several persons . The fourth Edition, with several Additions, Never before Printed.

      Printed for Henry Herringman 1682 - with 2 engraved portraits (here bound facing each other, before the title-page), title printed in red and black, a trifle browned, a bit of spotting to portraits, pp. [xii], 289, 8vo, contemporary black morocco, double gilt fillets on sides, attractive corner pieces built up from small tools, spine gilt in compartments, initials E P in gilt in the second compartment, gilt edges, upper joint slightly rubbed, very good, early signature on title of Eliza Hughes, another inscription of the front free end-paper of Elizabeth [Hughes, partially erased] dated 1703, bookplate of Robert S. Pirie. This edition, besides the added poems, and 'A Speech at a Conference of both Houses', contains the first engraved portraits of the poet, one at the age of 23, the other at the age of 76 (i.e. in the year that this edition was published). Wither to Prior calls for the portrait of the younger man to face the title-page, and the other to precede the poems: bound as they are here allows an easy comparison of the two effigies. The initials on the spine perhaps represent the maiden name of Eliza Hughes. A very nice copy, just how you want your 17th-century poetry. (Wither to Prior 929; ESTC R30183)

         The Anatomy of Plants. With an Idea of a Philosophical History of Plants. And several other Lectures, Read before the Royal Society

      Printed by W. Rawlins, for the Author, London 1682 - Folio (318 x 193 mm). 11 ff., 304, [19] pp. With 83 engraved plates, of which 5 are double-page. Bound in contemporary English calf, rebacked, red morocco spine label (chipped with loss of 5 letters), extremities worn and partially defective; some soiling or browning internally. Plates 54-83 with stain along top margin. A good copy. Nehemiah Grew is considered to be among the founders of the science of plant anatomy. This revised collected edition represents the first textbook on the subject, containing three earlier treatises: The Anatomy of Vegetables Begun (1672), An Idea of a Phytological History Propounded (1673), and The Comparative Anatomy of Trunks (1675). Grew’s pioneering investigations into how organs and tissues are formed during plant growth led to the conception of the plant as a coordinated developing structure and marked the beginning of efforts to link structure and development. Along with Malpighi, Grew was the first to investigate internal plant anatomy: with the aid of the microscope, he demonstrated that plants have a characteristic ordered inner structure, (illustrated in his accurate and beautiful plates) and that all plant tissues could be broadly divided into "ligneous" (fibro-vascular) and "pithy" (parenchymatous) categories. He showed that the "cells" first observed by Robert Hooke made up the normal structure of the parenchyma, and came very close to recognizing the universal cellular structure of plants. He believed that a plant’s sexual organs were contained in its flowers, and recognized the stamen to be a male organ. As we learn from the DNB: "In 1682 Grew’s magnum opus, ‘The Anatomy of Plants,’ was issued. Of the four ‘books’ of this work, the first, second, and third are second editions of ‘The Anatomy begun,’ ‘The Anatomy of Roots,’ and the ‘The Anatomy of Trunks,’ extending to 49, 46, and 44 folio pages respectively, and illustrated by four, thirteen, and twenty-three plates. The fourth book, dedicated to Boyle, includes ‘The Anatomy of Leaves, Flowers, Fruits, and Seeds,’ 72 pages, with forty-two plates. Among the structural points clearly shown in these plates are the coats of the ovule and seed, the pulpy coat to that of the gooseberry, the cotyledons, plumule, and radicle of the embryo, the vascular bundles in leaf-stalks, the resin-ducts of the pine, the latex-vessels of the vine and the sumach, the folding of leaves in buds, superficial hairs and internal crystals, the structure of the minute flowers of the compositae, the stamens, or ‘attire,’ as they were then termed, and their pollen-grains. Although it is commonly attributed, on the ground of a modest remark of Grew’s, to Sir Thomas Millington, it is probable that to Grew himself belongs the credit of first observing the true existence of sex in plants. Haller styles him ‘industrius ubique naturae observator,’ and Linneaus dedicated to him the genus Grewia in Tiliaceae." "The book is best remembered for the idea, suggested to Grew by the physician Sir Thomas Millington, that the stamen, with its pollen, is the male sex organ and that the pistil corresponds to the sex organ of the female."

Johan / Jan / Johannes Nieuhof / Nieuhoff / Neuhof (1618-1672) was a Dutch traveler who wrote about his journeys to Brazil, China and India. The most famous of these was a trip of 2,400 km from Canton to Peking in 1655-1657, which enabled him to become an authoritative Western writer on China. Johan Nieuhof was born in Uelsen, Germany, of which his father (originally from Zwolle) was mayor. Nieuhof left for Brazil in 1640 as a reserve officer-candidate - from then on, barring two short family visits in 1658 and 1671, he spent all the rest of his life abroad. After an adventurous career in the service of the Dutch East India Company (or VOC) - between 1660 and 1667 he occupied posts in India and on Ceylon - he then lived in Batavia until 1670. He then disappeared without trace on Madagascar, traveling in a sloop from which he had landed to seek drinking water. The engravings are made after Nieuhoff's drawings. This plate is engraved by Johannes Kip. Condition: Fine; General age related toning and light staining from handling. Irregular paper edges with small tears.

         The Anatomy of Plants. With an Idea of a Philosophical History of Plants. And several other Lectures, Read before the Royal Society

      London: Printed by W. Rawlins, for the Author, 1682. FIRST EDITION. Folio (318 x 193 mm). 11 ff., 304, [19] pp. With 83 engraved plates, of which 5 are double-page. Bound in contemporary English calf, rebacked, red morocco spine label (chipped with loss of 5 letters), extremities worn and partially defective; some soiling or browning internally. Plates 54-83 with stain along top margin. A good copy. Nehemiah Grew is considered to be among the founders of the science of plant anatomy. This revised collected edition represents the first textbook on the subject, containing three earlier treatises: The Anatomy of Vegetables Begun (1672), An Idea of a Phytological History Propounded (1673), and The Comparative Anatomy of Trunks (1675). GrewÂ’s pioneering investigations into how organs and tissues are formed during plant growth led to the conception of the plant as a coordinated developing structure and marked the beginning of efforts to link structure and development. Along with Malpighi, Grew was the first to investigate internal plant anatomy: with the aid of the microscope, he demonstrated that plants have a characteristic ordered inner structure, (illustrated in his accurate and beautiful plates) and that all plant tissues could be broadly divided into “ligneous” (fibro-vascular) and “pithy” (parenchymatous) categories. He showed that the “cells” first observed by Robert Hooke made up the normal structure of the parenchyma, and came very close to recognizing the universal cellular structure of plants. He believed that a plantÂ’s sexual organs were contained in its flowers, and recognized the stamen to be a male organ. As we learn from the DNB: “In 1682 GrewÂ’s magnum opus, ‘The Anatomy of Plants,Â’ was issued. Of the four ‘booksÂ’ of this work, the first, second, and third are second editions of ‘The Anatomy begun,Â’ ‘The Anatomy of Roots,Â’ and the ‘The Anatomy of Trunks,Â’ extending to 49, 46, and 44 folio pages respectively, and illustrated by four, thirteen, and twenty-three plates. The fourth book, dedicated to Boyle, includes ‘The Anatomy of Leaves, Flowers, Fruits, and Seeds,Â’ 72 pages, with forty-two plates. Among the structural points clearly shown in these plates are the coats of the ovule and seed, the pulpy coat to that of the gooseberry, the cotyledons, plumule, and radicle of the embryo, the vascular bundles in leaf-stalks, the resin-ducts of the pine, the latex-vessels of the vine and the sumach, the folding of leaves in buds, superficial hairs and internal crystals, the structure of the minute flowers of the compositae, the stamens, or ‘attire,Â’ as they were then termed, and their pollen-grains. Although it is commonly attributed, on the ground of a modest remark of GrewÂ’s, to Sir Thomas Millington, it is probable that to Grew himself belongs the credit of first observing the true existence of sex in plants. Haller styles him ‘industrius ubique naturae observator,Â’ and Linneaus dedicated to him the genus Grewia in Tiliaceae.” “The book is best remembered for the idea, suggested to Grew by the physician Sir Thomas Millington, that the stamen, with its pollen, is the male sex organ and that the pistil corresponds to the sex organ of the female.” (Encyclopedia Britannica) Hunt 362.

        Polygamia triumphatrix, id est Discursus politicus de Polygamia auctore Theophilo Aletheo, cum notis Athanasii Vincentii, omnibus anti-polygamis ubique locorum, terrarum, insularum, pagorum, urbium, modeste & pie opposita.

      Lund, aux dépens de l'auteur 1682 - in-4, [5] ff. n. ch. (titre, préface), 565 pp., [16] ff. n. ch. (ajouts et tables), texte sur deux colonnes, typographie en petit corps, veau blond, dos à faux-nerfs cloisonné et fleuronné, encadrement de triple filet doré sur les plats, simple filet doré sur les coupes, tranches dorées sur marbrure, dentelle intérieure (rel. du XVIIIe s.). Mouillure marginale sans gravité. Habiles restaurations aux coiffes et coins. Troisième édition, la plus complète, après les deux ébauches sur le même sujet que constituèrent les deux éditions successives de 1674 et 1676, beaucoup moins développées. Très curieux ouvrage du théologien réformé danois Johann Leyser (1631-1684), un des rares à soutenir à son époque que la polygamie, en plus d'avoir été autorisée spécialement par Dieu pour la diffusion providentielle du peuple juif dans l'Ancien Testament (thèse classique, que l'on retrouve à la fois chez les Catholiques et les Protestants), était la plus conforme à sa volonté et correspondait à un commandement positif de sa part, thèse bien minoritaire, même en milieu réformé, et qui dut avoir comme conséquence une étrange multiplication des infarctus parmi la gent théologienne de toute robe. En tout cas, ses thèses ne portèrent pas bonheur à Leyser qui erra en Europe sans emploi, mourut dans la misère, et - ce qui est pire, convenons-en - parfaitement célibataire. Brunet I, 160. Bel exemplaire.
