About this Item: London: by Jo. Martyn, and Ja. Allestry, Printers to the Royal Society, and are to be sold at their Shop, 1665, 1665. Folio (300 × 192 mm). Contemporary calf, gilt arms to covers, rebacked to style with endpapers renewed. Red morocco-backed folding box. Boards rubbed, corners just worn, small repair to verso of first plate, some plates trimmed across the platemarks (as often) but without loss to the image; a very good copy. Licence leaf facing title expertly laid down on antique paper, title in red and black, 38 engraved plates (of which 15 are folding) after Hooke and Sir Christopher Wren (2 plates titled in manuscript, as the Horblit copy), woodcut headpieces and initials. With the gilt supralibros of the Society of Writers to the Signet on both covers; bookplate and library label of William Morehead. First edition, first issue, of this "early landmark in microscopy, containing the first illustration of cells [plate xi]" (Horblit). Published under the aegis of the Royal Society, Hooke's observations were the first to be carried out with an improved compound microscope, and the first to describe the microscopic structure of tissue with the term "cell". The book reproduces the almost frantic series of observations made by Hooke in 1663 and 1664 as the young scientist (he was still in his 20s) peered through the lenses of his new microscope at anything he could find. His text ranges widely, finding space for discussion of microscopic fungi, the life cycle of the mosquito, the origin of lunar craters, as well as the origin of fossils (Hooke's proposal is the first sensible one in print). There is also the discussion of light and colour which led to his bitter dispute with Newton. The extent of Hooke's investigation and the precision of his account entirely devoted to microscopical examination made Hooke's work "probably the most influential book in the entire history of microscopy" (Norman). But it is the justly famous series of plates, engraved mostly from Hooke's drawings with some probably by Sir Christopher Wren, which ultimately distinguishes the book, made it a contemporary bestseller, and kept Pepys up all night staring at it in amazement. Here are the tiny, unregarded components of everyday life – a stinging nettle, for example, a louse, or the famous flea – blown up with a startling degree of detail and exactness not to be equalled until the age of the electron microscope. This discovery of a world-within-a-world had a profound influence on contemporary perceptions of everyday reality: the disorientating effect of the new perspective is memorably captured in Swift's descriptions of Lilliput and Brobdingnag in Gulliver's Travels.

About this Item: London, John Martyn and James Allestry, 1665, 1665. Folio (296 x 195 mm), pp [xxxvi] 246 [10], title printed in red and black, engraved arms of the Royal Society on title, and 38 engraved plates, of which 33 are folding; a few clean tears to plates carefully repaired and without loss, a fine, crisp, unpressed copy in contemporary English mottled calf, rebacked.First edition, first issue, a fine, large copy with the plates uncropped and untrimmed. This is the most important work on microscopy ever published, and contains a large number of discoveries made possible by Hooke's newly perfected compound microscope, presented in outstanding engravings of the microscopic world. Hooke investigated animal, vegetable, and mineral substances, and his observations in all three realms are fundamental to the sciences. He gave the first description of the plant-like form of moulds, the first accurate account of the compound eye of the fly, and other structures such as bees' wings, and the legs and feet of the fly. In his investigations of the structure of cork he used the term 'cellulae' to describe the basic unit of tissue. He compared the structure of charcoal with that of fossilised wood and deduced correctly that mineral substances had replaced the organic matter of the original organism, extending this observation to other fossilised remains; this was the first scientifically accurate explanation of the nature of fossils. But above all the Micrographia, with its combination of observation and reasoning, allied to excellent illustrations, established the microscope as a primary research tool in the sciences.In addition to its contributions to microscopy, Micrographia contains many other important inventions and discoveries, including the wheel barometer and a new hygrometer. Micrographia also 'presents the first substantial opposing theory to the Pythagorean concept of light as a stream of particles', hypothesising 'that light is a vibration transmitted through a medium' (Parkinson, Breakthroughs). Hooke's research was the inspiration for Newton's optical experiments leading up to his Opticks.The fine plates, here in particularly good impressions, were largely if not entirely drawn and engraved by Hooke himself, although it is possible that some were drawn by Sir Christopher Wren. The book was reissued in 1667 with some leaves reset and the plates in noticeably inferior impressions.This copy has contemporary neat pencil annotation and underlining throughout; a marginal note on p 43 records 'Montanari affirms ye Contrary in his Speculationi Fisiche'; this refers to Antonio Montanari (1644-1717), whose Speculazioni fisiche was published in Bologna in 1671. This work was a study of the physics of glass threads and droplets and the methods of making tempered glass, written in the form of two letters, one to the Grand Duke Ferdinand II and the second to the Venetian patrician Girolamo Savorgnano, and dedicated to the Accademia de gl'Ardenti in Bologna. Along with the physical properties of these glass droplets and the effects of shattering them, the 'atomistic' basis of their composition and behaviour are discussed.Provenance: armorial bookplate of Gustavus Wynne Cook; bookplate of Gaddesden Library, with shelfmark; typed description from E. P. Goldschmidt and Co. tipped onto front free endleaf, describing this copy (priced £21); German catalogue description of a copy, possibly this one, also tipped inDibner 187; Horblit 50; Keynes 6; PMM 147; Wing H2620.
