1655 Galileo Galilei Assayer Saggiatore Astronomy Science Comets Saturn Italian "I have never met a man so ignorant that I couldn't learn something from him." ― Galileo Galilei Few names are as synonymous with astronomy as Galileo. Known for his astronomical discoveries and physics studies, Galileo is unquestionably one of the most important scientists to ever live. He published several landmark books including 'The Assayer' or 'Saggiatore' – the pioneering book on the scientific method. Galileo wrote this book as a response to Grassi's work on celestial bodies and comets in which Grassi did not give credit to Galileo for his discoveries. In 1655, Bolognese publisher Dozza printed the complete works of Galileo including 'Saggiatore'. This edition includes impressive woodcut illustrations throughout.

1726 Devotion of Sacred Heart of Jesus Jesuit Joseph Gallifet Catholic Doctrine Joseph de Gallifet was a French Jesuit priest during the first part of the 18th-century. He is most remembered for his promotion and support for the Sacred Heart of Jesus devotion – a devotion that is still widely practiced by Catholics. And while the feast for the Sacred Heart was not recognized until decades after Gallifet's death, his book 'Ce Cultu Sacrosancti Cordis' was written with the sole intention of fostering a culture which embraced the Sacred Heart Devotion. This 1726 edition of 'Sacred Heart' is an important printing in that it features the classic full-page engravings of the anatomically correct human heart – one with the cross and crown of thorns and the other without.

1857 1ed Life of Charlotte Bronte by Gaskell English Romance Literature 2v SET "I would always rather be happy than dignified." ― Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre Charlotte Brontë is perhaps one of the most well-known English novelists of the 19th-century, let alone being the most-popular female author of English literature. Her works, such as 'Jane Eyre', propelled her fame and made a lasting impact on English literature. However, in 1857, fellow female English author Elizabeth Gaskell contributed to Brontë's success with her biography of Brontë. It is curious that much of the contents of this book came from Charlotte herself and her many letters and written correspondences. A beautiful, two-volume First American edition was published in 1857. Item number: #5855 Price: $499 GASKELL, Elizabeth Cleghorn The life of Charlotte Brontë New York, D. Appleton and company, 1857.

1494 Jean Gerson INCUNABLE Medieval Catholic Poem Mysticism Josephina Incunabula An extremely rare volume from the 1494 printing of the complete works of Jean Gerson. Gerson was one of the most prominent 14th-century French scholars and played an important role in the development of the Council of Constance. He was distinguished by adopting mysticism as a primary focus of his theology, though today, his works are held in high regard especially within the Catholic Church. In 1494, Strasbourg publisher Martin Flach printed the complete works of Gerson in three volumes over the course of a few months at the end of the year. Curiously, the third part is dated August while the first two parts are dated December of 1494. This incredibly impressive third volume of the complete works of Gerson includes a full-page woodcut engraving of Gerson climbing toward a castle. It also features many of his works on mysticism, evangelism, meditations, exercises in devotion, an exposition on Psalms, living a solitary life, as ... Read more

1797 FAMOUS Edward Gibbon Decline & Fall of Roman Empire Caesar ROME 12v SET "Lo, there appeared a truly classic work: a history not majestic like Livy, nor compressed like Tacitus; not stamped with character like Clarendon; perhaps not so deep as Robertson's 'Scotland,' but a thousand degrees above his 'Charles'." – Allibone, on Gibbon's 'History' Originally printed in 1776, "The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire" was written in six volumes by Edward Gibbon. It has maintained its status as one of the most important literary achievements of the 18th-century and saw numerous editions.

1682 Glanvill & More Anglican Philosophy Eastern Sages Robert Boyle IrelandA rare, late 17th-century printing of two famed English philosophical essays by Joseph Glanvill and Dr. Henry More. These two English philosophers were known to have influenced each other on a variety of philosophical issues. Their works were often found published together as is the case with this 1682 printing of 'Two Choice and Useful Treatises'. Glanvill's 'Lux Orientalis' was his philosophical stance on the fundamental theories of the Anglican Church. It was written as a defense of More's doctrine of 'Preexistence of Souls' (DNB XXI), and was notable for being included in a letter to Robert Boyle!Dr. Henry More found himself in a number of controversial arguments with Robert Boyle mostly because he was interested in new forms of philosophical science and unfocused on the scientific evidences found by Boyle. His treatise 'Discourse of Truth' expresses many of these philosophical views.Item number: #5368Price: $550GLANVILL, Joseph; ... Read more
