About this Item: Apud Gulielmum Rovillium, 1569., Lugduni [Lyon]:, 1569. Small 8vo. [1]-344 pp., [4] ff. Index; marginal worm trails showing on the final 4 leaves. Somewhat modern quarter calf, and endleaves. Very good. RARE. Very early edition [Another edition of 1561 printed in Lyon by Roullius [283 pages], making this 1569 issue the second printed in Lyons, as determined via WorldCat.]. Porta's work was first issued in four books, 1558, and expanded up to XX books (1589), written first at the age of fifteen. Dedicated to Philip II of Spain. "From 1574 to 1580 Della Porta was repeatedly interrogated by inquisitors, and the publication of his writings was prohibited. Jean Bodin, in his Demonomanie des sorciers (1580), accuses Della Porta of being a 'poisonous sorcerer' and goes on to attack Agrippa. Among the various followers of Paracelsus, Jacques Gohory, denounced Della Porta. As Massimo L. Bianchi has recently demonstrated, Della Porta was up to date on Paracelsus' ideas, although perhaps only through his followers. As if this were not enough, Thomas Erastus, a Protestant critic of Paracelsism, spoke out against Della Porta as well â" which leads one to believe that the last two accusations were also reactions against his chemical experiments. This onslaught forced Della Porta, at the height of his fame, to cease published for several years." â" Zambelli, p. 28. "Natural Magic was revised and considerably expanded throughout the author's lifetime." The text contents include: I: natural phenomena; II: medicinal preparations; III: alchemy, metallurgy, glass; IV: optics, a chapter on the camera obscura (the first known full description)." â" [See full S.E.P. essay in next description] Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy. "Porta's first book, published in 1558 as Magiae naturalis, was a treatise on the secrets of nature, which he began collecting when he was fifteen. The secrets are arranged in four books, and the conception implied in the title is that natural magic is the perfection of natural philosophy and the highest science. This small collection of secrets constituted the basis of a twenty-book edition of the Magiae naturalis published in 1589, which is Porta's best known work and the basis of his reputation. It is an extraordinary hodgepodge of material representing that unique combination of curiosity and credulity common in the late Renaissance. But combined with the author's insatiable desire for the marvelous and apparently miraculous is a serious attempt to define and describe natural magic and some refined application of both mathematical and experimental techniques in science." â" DSB, XI, pp. 96. Giambattista della Porta, noted Neapolitan mathematician and natural philosopher, overshadowed only by Galileo in the work of Renaissance science, had a wide range of scientific and literary interests. There are demonstrated by his numerous published works. His most famous and best remembered are those on natural magic, optics, refraction and the telescope. He was also a member of the outstanding literary academy of Naples, Altomare, and the founder of the Accademia de' Secreti (Secrets of Nature). Later, he became a member of the famous Accademia dei Lincei, as well as other lesser known literary academies in Naples. His dabbling in pseudo-scientific and occult sciences caused his works to be banned by the Inquisition in 1592, which was lifted in 1598. Thorndike points out that Della Porta was either adept at escaping "serious molestation or punishment by submission or by influence in high places." â" Thorndike, v.6, p. 156. See [most referring to 1558 first ed.]: Brunet IV, 826; Cascoigne, 1627; DSB; Duveen p. 481 (1651 ed.); Ferguson, II, p. 216; Mottelay, pp. 72-75; Partington, II, p. 17; Poggendorff, II, p. 505; Riccardi, II, p. 310; Ronalds Library, p. 408; Wellcome, I [not mentioning this ed.]; Wolf, History of Science, I, pp. 544-545.

About this Item: Antverpiae, Christophori Plantin, 1560. 8vo (16.3 x 10.6 cm). Title page with woodcut vignette, [xiv], 136, [i] pp. Contemporary full limp, blind vellum.= Very rare, early Plantin edition (Privilegio dated 25 Octob. 1559) of the first work by the Neapolitan mathematician and natural philosopher Giambattista [here Ioan Baptista]Della Porta (1535-1615). The first edition was published in Naples in 1558, and is very rare too. This work includes the very first description of the camera obscura or dark room; in other words, the description of the first technical device allowing the projection of an image. Also contains various observations and thoughts regarding geology, metallurgy and magnetism, as well as poisons, drugs, perfumes, etc. "Della Porta was an Italian scholar, polymath and playwright who lived in Naples at the time of the Scientific Revolution and Reformation. Giambattista della Porta spent the majority of his life on scientific endeavours. He benefited from an informal education of tutors and visits from renowned scholars. His most famous work, first published in 1558, is entitled Magiae Naturalis (Natural Magic). . He was also referred to as 'professor of secrets' . His private museum was visited by travelers and was one of the earliest examples of a natural history museum. It inspired the Jesuit Athanasius Kircher to begin a similar, even more renowned, collection in Rome. Della Porta was the founder of a scientific society called the Academia Secretorum Naturae (Accademia dei Segreti). This group was more commonly known as the Otiosi, (Men of Leisure). Founded sometime before 1580, the Otiosi were one of the first scientific societies in Europe and their aim was to study the 'secrets of nature'. Any person applying for membership had to demonstrate they had made a new discovery in the natural sciences" (Wikipedia). Pictorial bookplate "virtutis regia merces" of the Skene Library mounted on the front pastedown. Some old, skilful repairs to the binding. Internally a very good, clean and unmarked copy. DSB XI, pp. 95-98; Voet, 2085. Seller Inventory # 71363
