DESCARTES, René.
Discours de la Methode pour bien conduire sa raison, & chercher la verité dans les Sciences. Plus La Dioptrique, les Meteores, la Mechanique, et la Musique, Qui sont des essais de cette Methode...

Paris, Angot 1668.

4to. 303 [misnumbered; recte: 305] pp., (23) pp., 127 pp., (1) p. With repeated printer’s divice and many woodcut diagrams. Contemporary leather (spine renewed [using the original material], corners restored), spine gilt, gilt stamped title to spine.

Third edition of the discours, édition originale de la Méchanique, 1st French edition of the theory of music. Guibert listed this edition of the Discours as being the third; he did not take into account the edition of 1657, which is only known through 2 examples.

The first edition of the Discours le la methode published in 1637 - publication was anonymous, not least as a result of the sentence against Galileo of 1632 – which is acknowledged as being the first scientific-philosophic work written in French. It forms, at the same time, the basis for rationalistic mechanism in the 18th century as well as for later scientific models. By way of critical discussion of mainstream philosophical tradition in the Discours he presents the "individualist gesture" in contrast to this tradition: in the "World as a Book" the reflective individual finds the rules concerning this world and of thought. La Dioptrique, les Meteores, la Mechanique and also the theories of music are applications of the methodological discussion. In 1618 Descartes had written the compendium musicae for the mathematician Isaak Beekmann and had presented him with the manuscript, together with his request that he keep it a secret; he arranged for its first publication in 1650. Descartes is regarded as the founder of "rationalised theory of emotions "; music can create emotions (in this context he was preoccupied with the degree of consonants in the major third and syncopation), knowledge of musical theory allows one the possibility of being able to control these emotions. These aspects are then pursued in more detail in “Passions de l'âme”.

Original end-papers preserved and bound in, new ones added. Front fly-leaf (old one) with old ownership entry. Slightly browned, some lvs. more heavily, minor spotting. A good copy.

Vristadii, apud Lancellotum Misopodem...1656. Sm.-4to. (2) lvs., 28 pp. With woodcut vignette to title.

First separate edition, very rare.

(BOUND WITH:) DESCARTES, R.: Musicae compendium. Amsterdam, J. Janssonius 1656. Sm.-4to. (2) lvs., 34 pp., (1) leaf. (blank). Title with woodcut vignette. 2nd (?) edition, earlier than the 1st French one (Guibert records editions Amsterdam 1653 and Utrecht 1656 but he doesn’t know any copy of these editions).

(BOUND WITH:) DESCARTES, R.: Tractatus de homine, et de formatione foetus. Quorum prior Notis perpetuis Ludovici de la Forge, M.D. illustratur. Amsterdam, Elzevier 1677. Sm.-4to. (38) lvs., 239 pp., (1) p. (blank). Printer’s device, c. 50 diagrams, all in woodcut. 5th Latin edition, 1st of Claude Clerselier’s translation.

Contemporary leather (slightly rubbed, head and foot of spine, corner, edges heavily rubbed, front joint partly broken), spine gilt, gilt stamped title to spine, small modern spine library label.

I: In this short piece written in 1645, directed at the Magistrate of Utrecht, Descartes defends himself and his theories against the accusations made by Voetius and Dematius. Gisbert Voetius, an influential Calvinist preacher in Utrecht, had claimed that the meditationes de prima philosophia represented opinions of atheism.

II: In 1618 Descartes had written the compendium musicae for the mathematician Isaak Beekmann and had presented him with the manuscript, together with his request that he keep it a secret; he arranged for its first publication in 1650. Descartes is regarded as the founder of "rationalised theory of emotions"; music can create emotions (in this context he was preoccupied with the degree of consonants in the major third and syncopation), knowledge of musical theory allows one the possibility of being able to control these emotions. These aspects are then pursued in more detail in Passions de l'âme.

III: " Descartes developed his ideas concerning the physiology of man in detail primarily in Traité de l'homme, the discourse on man, first published 12 years after his death in Holland but translated into Latin and 14 years after his death published in France in the original French. This book explains the human body as a machine ... purely mechanical down to the tiniest detail. Walking and swallowing, taste and smell, hearing and holding, digestion and sight – everything can be physically explained in this system, without requiring the hypothesis, which – following Descartes - does not explain anything but which simply leads to a mystification for the scientist of the so-called organisms, that in biology there exist both ‚Soul' and ‚Life', neither of which can be explained through the laws governing the anorganic world. Almost every physiological thesis,...that one finds in Descartes, has been found to be false; but seldom were mistakes so productive: medical progress was made by way of Cartesianism" (R. Specht, Descartes. Reinbeck 81998, p. 112).

Slightly browned throughout (some lvs. heavily), somewhat brown-stained.

ERASMUS (of) Rot (terdam), Des(iderius): (Greek:) Morias egkomion. Stvltitiae laus ... Declamatio, Cum commentariis Ger. Listrii & figuris Jo. Holbenii. E codice Academiae Basiliensis...
Basle, J. R. Genath 1676.

8vo. (40) lvs., 336 pp., (6) lvs. Additional engraved title, vignette on printed title, 4 full-page plates (1 portrait of Erasmus, his epitaph, both after Holbein, 2 portraits of Holbein, 81 text engravings, all or most of them after Holbein (6 pasted and folded as a strip). All plates engraved by Caspar Merian. Head- and tail-pieces. Thus complete. 18th century leather (front joint broken, rear joint, corners and edges rubbed), spine gilt, gilt-stamped spine label. First edition with these illustrations. The schoolmaster Oswald Myconius of Basel introduced Holbein, when he visited Basel in the summer of 1515, to Froben, who in the same year had published a "Laus stultitiae" edition; in Myconius' own copy of this edition can be found the famous marginal drawings which formed the model from which the illustrations in our edition were engraved (the original is today in the collection of Basel city council). Credit for the drawings is not always constant (A. Schmid attributes at least 78-79 of the 82 illustrations to Hans Holbein [commentary to a facsimile-edition, Basel 1931]). "One sees at first glance that these marginal drawings have been casually carrried out, but with an attempt to reflect the mocking spirit of the author, Erasmus. Wenn wir in diesen überwiegend übermütigen Bildglossen hier und da Verzeichnungen unschwer erkennen, then we should keep in mind that these were the work of an 18-19 year old apprentice, who was not borne down with the weight of a commission. Holbein would have to work at himself considerably before he could dare to attempt the carefully deliberated illustrations of Death (approx. 1523. On the other hand, the critical eye for human folly in all its forms is astounding in such a young artist. The humor of the illuminator is unmistakeable, and the most interesting thing about these pen and ink drawings is the inspired wit based on incidental comments of Erasmus" (H. Kunze. Gesch. d. Buchill. in Dtl. im 16. u. 17. Jh. p. 10). Two of the originals are not found in this edition, and one with two figures has been split into two. "Lob der Torheit" stands as a unique example of its style, as Erasmus has chosen not to adopt the clear moralistic approach as found in other satires on fools (foolishness vs. cleverness), but differentiates "folly": this is just as much a part of life, "bearer of human life and human happiness" and can lead to weakness and to negative estimation. The criteria for this appraisal " are life and happiness of the individual, not moral or religious standards" (both quotations from Bachorski/Röcke in Glaser, Deutsche Literatur, Vol. 2, pp. 209/210). Front end-paper with a large engraved bookplate (Arenberg library; see Laloire, E.: Généalogie de la Maison...d’Arenberg. Bruxelles 1940. p. 7/8), rear end-paper with another bookplate. Slightly browned throughout (some lvs, end-papers and fly-lvs. more), somewhat stained. Printed title with small worm-track (restored), a few lvs. with marginal paper defects (all not touching text / engravings). Some plates printed less clear. VD17, 39:141344Z; v.d. Haeghen I, 125; Graesse II, 495; Brunet II, 1037; Thieme / Becker XVII, 355 (Holbein) and XXIV, 413 (K. Merian).
