Titlepage with repairs at the lower margin, without affecting the engraving. Some scratching on titlepage as on plate (Tabula V Libri III). Only on the reproductive systems. Otherwise in fine condition. Provenance in handwritting on the first blank: " Desen boeck behoort toe aen Guillielsmus Josephus Dentier tot Gistel den 24 meije 1763". Ad A. Very rare only 450 copies are printed ( See note Bibl. Belgica). Title within engraved border, and plates are the same as in the 1566 edition of the author's Vivae imagines. A Dutch translation of the Vivae imagines of 1566, including Vesalius' Epitome.The explanation of the figures was translated by Jean Thorius, and the rest of the text (principally the Epitome) by Martin Everaert. The work consists of the 42 Valverde plates [based on Vesalius' Fabrica] re-engraved on copper. ( Some reversed). The text accompanying the plates is translated from Valverde's Vivae imagines partium corporis humani. On p. 141-196 [i. e. 198]. There is the Epitome by Vesalius. "Het Epitome, oft cort verhael vande boecken van Andries Vesalius Bruesselaer, vande fabrijck van d'menschelick lichaem": "De differentien van alle de partien oft deelen des lichaems deur Jacob Grevin": p. [199]. Choulant p. 206. Norman No. 2128 ( Latin ed. 1566):" Valverde , a Spanish physician, studied anatomy at the University of Padua under Vesalius and Realdo Colombo and published his ' Historia de la composicion del cuerpo humano ( Rome 1556)', thirteen years after the apperance of Vesalius's Fabrica. All but fifteen of Valverde's images were taken directly from the 1543 and 1555 editions of the Fabrica, but Valverde obscured the origin of many of the images by combining them, or by adding extraneous details such as suits of armor or new heads. Valverde made over sixty corrections and additions to Vesalius's work, including descriptions of the stapes of the air, the short palmar muscle, the pregnant human uterus and the pulmonary curcuit of the blood. Perhaps his most significant contribution was his statement of the true nature of the cardiac septum, which corrected Vesalius' and Galen's mistaken notion that blood passes through the septum from the right ventricle to the left" This very scarce Dutch title has been of great influence on Japanese medicine. The frontispiece of the " Kaitai Shinsho" translated by Genpaku Sugita ( 1733 - 1817) is after the above work. The Kaitai Shinsho is the first and most complete Japanese translation of a medical book ( See Dodonaeus in Japan p. 20). It is considered as a source of modern medicine in Japan and highly valued not only from the viewpoint of medicine but also from the aspect of Japanese cultural history". (= Catalogue. Hist. Material Development of Modern Medicine in Japan. Jap. Soc. Of Medical History 1959. no 16.) See Eikoh Ma: In the Impact of Western Medicine on Japan ( Archiv. Int. d' Histoire des Sc. Juni 1966 p. 67) :" The significance of the achievement of Gempaku and others is that it was the first introduction of Vesalius anatomy into Japan by translation. Indeed, the Vesalius anatomy had reached this country earlier and a translation of a Dutch anatomical book had been also attempted many years earlier, but it was not so successful as Gempaku's translation and did not influence Japanese medicine as Gempaku did. Therefore , we might consider Gempaku's translation as the first introduction of Vesalius anatomy. pp. 69 :" there is evidence that Gempaku and others refered of an anatomical book by Valverde, for the colored titlepage of the Kaitai Shinsho bears a strikingly close resemb.

Original halfcalf with marbled boards. Small portion of top of spine gone. (ca 1.5 cm) Front joint weak. Corners bumped, some stamps erased from titlepage. Some mild foxing. Inside a very good copy. First edition.Printing and the Mind of Man: no 257 :" Gauss ranks, together with Archimedes and Newton, as one of the greatest geniuses in the history of mathematics. Gauss published his ' Arithmetical Disquisitions' at the age of twenty-four, an astonishing achievement, as it is considered to be a book that begins a new epoch in mathematics, being a fundamental book in the modern theory of numbers" Kline p. 813 :" In this book Gauss standardized the notation; he systematized the existing theory and extended it; and he classified the problems to be studied and the known methods of attack and introduced new methods. it not only began the modern theory of numbers but determined the directions of work in the subject up to the present time". Norman No 878 :" The typesetters of this work were unable to understand Gauss's new and difficult mathematics, creating numerous elaborate mistakes which Gauss was unable to correct in proof. ( with four pages with errata). . Gauss's highly technical work was printed in a small edition, and the difficulty of understanding it was hardly alleviated by the sloppy typesetting. The few mathematicians who were able to read the book immediately hailed Gauss as their price, but the full understanding required for further development did not occur until publication in 1863 of Dirichlet's less austere exposition in his Vorlesungen über Zahlentheorie."

Stylus or pencil connecting the clasps and functioning as a cath.Further details upon request. ( Images etc.) Extreme scarce in this very fine / mint condition. V.O.C. silver from the Rotterdam chamber is very scarce. Landwehr p. XXVII :"Few VOC bindings bearing the initials of the less important chambers, such as Delft and Rotterdam, have come to light. . The Rotterdam chamber followed Delft in the presentation of its monogram. Actually the two chambers jointly commisioned notebooks and / or almanacs on a yearly basis from the same silversmith. Elegantly bound in sealskin, they were provided with a silver plate of an East Indiaman surrouned by scrollwork on the front and back covers. Two clasps, bearing the VOC- D or VOC-R monogram both outside and inside and both ith rings, were held together by a silver stylus. Possibly these books served as gifts for freinds and relations of the directors.

Item Description: Amsterdam, Janssoons van Waesberge, 1744. 3 vols. Large 4to. Contemporary half roan. Engraved allegorical frontispiece, 3 titles in red & black, engraved portrait of Ruysch designed by I. Wandelaar and executed by D. Hoogstraten, 7 engraved illustrations in text, 2 woodcut illustrations in text and 133 engraved folding plates with anatomical designs and anatomical specimen. (4), 1280, (184) pp. Very rare Dutch edition of the complete works of the great Dutch anatomist, Frederik Ruysch. These complete works originally were published in Latin as Opera Omnia Anatomico-Medico-chirurgica ut usque edita in 1737. Frederik Ruysch (1638-1731), a surgeon and anatomist, professor at Leiden and Amsterdam. He was the first to demonstrate the occurrence of blood vessels in almost all tissues of the human body, made many important anatomical investigations including those of the valves in the lympathics, the bronchial arteries, and the vascular plexuses of the heart, and he was the first also to point out the nourishment of the foetus through the umbilical cord. His works are richly illustrated with excellent engravings, no doubt enhanced by his injection techniques. And especially the engravings of anatomical specimen, which Ruysch prepared with great skill, both of individual organs and entire corpses, deserve special attention for their fantastic, almost surrealistic beauty, showing stuffed monsters, strange reptiles, dried plants, sea creatures, and smiling skeletons arranged in a quaint landscape of organs. Ruysch invented a method of minute injection of anatomical structures allowing detailed studies. Ruysch himself never disclosed the composition of the fluids he used, but in 1743 Johann Christoph Rieger revealed that he used a mixture of talc, white wax, and cinnabar for injecting vessels, whereas his embalming fluid - liquor balsamicus - consisted of alcohol - prepared from wine or corn - to which some black pepper was added. However Ruysch's own, real recipe for the injected substance has been lost, and his anatomical specimen still stay unsurpassed to this day. Embalming by arterial injection as a mortuary practice is considered to have begun in England in the 18th century. The technique had actually been developed in the first half of the 17th century by the noted English physiologist William Harvey in experiments leading to his discovery of the circulation of blood, during which he injected coloured solutions into the arteries of cadavers. Such techniques were further perfected by Jan Swammerdam and Regnier de Graaf. Ruysch, however, who first studied the art of making preparations in the anatomical laboratory of Johannes van Horne, remains the unsurpassed master of anatomical preparations. In the summer of 1696 he announced the dissection of bodies "which appear still to be alive but which have been dead for about two years." Ruysch displayed these preparations - against an entrance fee - in several small rented houses in Amsterdam, and this "cabinet"of anatomical specimen became a major attraction for foreign visitors, and was sometimes referred to as "The Eight Wonder of the World". One entry on page 30 in the visitor's protocol is Peter, Tsar of Russia. In 1717 Peter the Great bought the collection for 30.000 guilders. Several of the items are still held by the Museum of the Academy of Sciences in St. Petersburg. The seventy-nine year old Ruysch immediately began to set up a new collection. Ruysch's fame inspired Giacomo Leopardi to his fantastic Dialogo di F. Ruysch e delle sue mummie in his Operette Morali. The volumes comprise: I. SCHREIBER, J.F. Verhaal van 't leven ende verdiensten van Frederik Ruysch; RUYSCH, F. Ontdekking der klap-vliesen, in de water- en melkvaten, nevens eenige seldsame anatomische observatien; IDEM.

" A work of utmost rarity. Not in Norman, not in the Parcival Bailey collection; Waller no. 2606 ( copy with only 10 plts). Not in Osler nor in Cushing. Tauregg p. 200. Probably not all copies of the first edition are the same. " Mécanisme de la physionomie humaine was a rare book when it was published in Paris in 1862. Few copies were produced. although important in the development of modern experimental psychology and physiology, original copies of this book have been restricted to a few major libraries. . The book has been published in fasciscule containing the introduction first, followed by the scientific section, and then an aesthetic section was published some months later. This sequential publication had the advantage that critisisms made by reviewers of, for example, the scientific section, were answered by Duchenne in the subsequent Aesthetic section, Together, the three fascicules constituted the 'text'. They were either sold bound together or could be bought loose and bound by purchaser in their own preferred style." From the preface of the English reprint. C.U.P. 1990. Bookseller Inventory # 3683

Item Description: Leide, E.J. Brill, 1892. 190, [1] p. 24 cm. original brown printed wrappers. Some restoration, but in fine condition. The first edition, not the issue from the periodical, but with separate pagination and on the front the Cover-title. Extrait des Archives néerlandaises des sciences exactes et naturelles, T. XXV. Small label mounted on front: " Leide E.J. Brill 1892". D.S.B. VIII p. 494. :" Lorentz, declared his conversion to contiguous action in electromagnetic processes. Lorentz objected , however, to two features of Hertz's electrodynamics, which prompted his first memoir in 1892 on the electron theory: ' La théorie électromagnetique de Maxwell et son applications aux corps mouvants.' He criticized Hertz's totally dragged ether on well-known optical grounds; and although he admired the clear, succinct mathematical form that Hertz and Heavisde had given to Maxwell's theory, he criticized Hertz's bare postulation of the field equations. Referring to ' one of the most beautiful ' chapters in Maxwell's Treatise, in which Maxwell applied Langrangian mechanics to elucidate electromagetism without assuming a detailed mechanism, Lorentz in 1892 continued the mechanical exploration begun by Maxwell. He remarked that ' one has always tried to return to mechanical explanations', and properly so in his opinion. After leaving down his own hypotheses concerning the stationary ether and electrons, he applied d'Alembert's principle to derive the field equations and the equations of motion of an electron in the field. Charateristically, Lorentz spelled out at the start the physical suppositions of his theory; it was a constructive effort of exemplary clarity in a science chronically subject to obscurity. Lorentz incorporated into his electron theory Fresnel's view that the ether penetrates matter. He assumed that electrons are contained in all molecules of ordinary matter. In contrast with Maxwell and Hertz, Lorentz provided a clear , simple interpretation of electric charge and current and of their relation to the electromagnetic field. Because Lorentz completely separated ether and matter, he needed only one pair of directed magnitudes - one electric and one magnetic- to define the field at a point. From his understanding of ether and electricity in 1892, Lorentz explained the interaction of light and matter in a way close to that of his optical theory of the 1870's.Printing and the mind of man no 378 A. (Dated 1893 'sic') :" In these papers Lorentz assumed the electrical nature of matter and stated that all electrical particles become shortened when in motion along the direction in which the ether drifts. In 1905 Einstein propounded a special, limited theory of relativity with the express purpose of clarifying the aberration problem, to which end he adopted Lorentz's theory. The importance of this paper is that coincidentally with J.J.Thomson Lorentz had hit upon the electron theory of matter. While Thomson explained electricity in terms of matter, Lorentz expressed matter in terms of electricity. " Not in Norman, Herals of Science, Horblitt, Sparrow.

Item Description: Paris, J. Guerin, 1738. Fine engraved frontispiece 23, ( i) pp.; Old. marbled boards (almost contemp.); lower outer corner faintly waterstained; very slightly foxed but a good copy with broad uncut margins. A statue of a flute player in the Tuilleries Gardens at Paris inspired Jacques de Vaucanson to build an automaton flute player which could play airs and move his limbs as naturally as possible. After many years of experimenting he overcame the technical difficulties and demonstrated his automaton to the excited members of the "Académie Royale" in 1738, together with a similar tambourine player and a duck which could eat and even had a kind of digestive system! He outrivaled all who were active at the time building such 'machines'. In his later years he improved many industrial processes & found new technical solutions. NBG 45 p. 1019-20. In the first part he described what the contemporary "Journal des Scavans" called "The most profound researches into physics and anatomy to explain the acoustics and playing technique of the flute." As far as I know, Vaucanson was the first person to write about the flute's acoustics, and indeed the only person in the 18th century. In the second part of his memoir describes the workings of his flute player (= from the preface of the 1979 reprint (Lasocki). See at lenght Simmen: der Mechanische Mensch. A very rare and early work on automatons and androids.the frontisp. dep. a mechanical flute player, a tambourine man and a mechanical duck. Hapsels, Automatic musical instruments p. 89 :" The earliest reference to helicoidal notation I have found is in a small french monograph by Vaucanson ( the above), This delightful booklet, describes in great detail three automata, two of which play music from a programmed cylinder. Vaucanson goes on to explain that, with a cylinder circumference of 64 ' pouces' c. 173 cm, and a total of 12 helicoidal revolutions, the full length of each notation line is no less than 2075 cm. That these automata have actually been made and that they were a great success, appaers from an official extract of the Academie Royale des Sciences, dated 30 april 1738 ." Rather scarce.

(ii) 467-482p, 1 plate with 8 figures; modern calf with blindstamp, librarystamp and ownersticket, from : Abhandlungen der königl. böhm. Gesellschaft der Wissenschaften, V. Folge, Bd. 2. A very fine copy. First edition. DSB IV, 167. Gillespie IV, 167. Sparrow, Milestones of Science, 57: "in 1842, Doppler, Austrian mathematician, made the first announcement of the principle by which the approach of recession of celestical objects could be spectroscopically determined . Modified by relativity theory, the Doppler principle has become a major astronomical tool." Norman, nr. 651: "The first statement of the Doppler principle, which relates the observed frequency of a wave to the motion of the source or the observer relative to the medium in which the wave is propagated. Doppler mentioned the application of this principle to both acoustics and optics, particulary to the colored appearance of double stars and the fluctuations of variable stars and novae; however, his reasoning in the optical arguments was flawed by his erroneous belief that all stars were basically white and emitted light only or mostly in the visible spectrum. Five years later, the astronomer Hippolyte Fizeau published a paper announcing his independent discovery of the effect and noting the usefulness of observing spectral line shifts in its application to astronomy; this point was such fundamental importance to Doppler's principle that it is ometimes called the Doppler-Fizeau principle. The accoustical Doppler effect was verified experimentally in 1845, and the optical effect in 1901; . It has also numerous applications beyond astronomy, such as in Doppler radar and in machines to measure bloof flow.". Bookseller Inventory # 71555

The photographs were shot by a very talented person, the choice of the point of views is perfect, and all these photographs tell us so much about the life in a community, the organisation, the care in all the details, the gardens, the heating with those big coal ovens in the center of the rooms. Most of the photographs are inhabited by small figures, like haunting little ghosts, children in the class rooms with their stirn bearded teacher, gardeners, patients wandering or sitting on benches in the courtyards, all this photographed as if the photographer himself had created this small, industrious self-sufficient world. We had another album on the Bicetre and some of the pictures are the same. Folio album, 425 x 335mm, containing 60 albumen prints, mounted on cardboard leaves on linen guards, all but one leaf with two photographs per page, photographs mainly 165 x 232mm, each with neat handwritten caption below (though not always legible); one photograph missing, a few slightly faded; with a couple of further pencil annotations; in contemporary half cloth over marbled boards, binding a little rubbed and worn. A stunning and highly evocative album of original photographs, taken during the early 1890s, vividly capturing life at the famous Parisian asylum, the Hopital Bicêtre, and highlighting in particular the Asile des Enfants. Though anonymously compiled, it seems probable that some, if not all of the photographs, were taken by M. Hubert, the resident photographer at the hospital, and may welll have been taken under the auspices of the famous neurologist Désire-Magloire Bourneville, who was resident paediatric physician there from 1879 to 1905, and a well-known advocate of photography. It seems not beyond the bounds of reason that he may also have taken some of the images as well, the UMPC in Paris holding two albums attributed to him dated 1880-1881, although we have so far been unable to verify this conjecture. Whoever the photographer, they are nevertheless expertly taken, and provide a unique and fascinating insight into the 'behind-the-scenes' life and organisation of the hospital - though it must be said giving a somewhat sanitized view, and far from the startling and often harrowing images of patients so famously depicted by Bourneville and Regnard's in their i.

Item Description: Yokohama, Stillfried & Andersen ca., 1878. Album with photographic titlepage and 45 photographs of which 23 are coloured by hand measuring 194 x 244 mm. All laid down on thick cardboard leaves. Rather luxurious 19th richly calf binding over wooden boards, ruled and tooled in gilt & blind, gilt edges with brass oval shield in the centre of the front side, brass dosses on every corner of back side. brass clasps. Skillfully rebacked. boards browned, photographs partly discoloured, especially in the margin, but in all in very good condition. See Souvenirs from Japan by Winkel p. 26 :" Beato continued his photographic business until 1877 when he sold out to the firm of an Austrian, Baron von Stillfried. Beato stayed in Yokohama as a general merchant until 1884 after which time he settled in Rangoon.Baron Raimund von Stillfried und Radenitz was born in Bohemia in 1839. Like Beato , he travellled extensively before arriving in Japan. He came to Japan in 1870, apparently for the second time, with the ' Imperial Austrian Expedition' Von Stillfried decided to stay and established himself as a photographer in Yokohama. His photographs of Japan, shown at the 1873 Japan exhibition in Vienna, brought him fame not only in Austria but also in Japan. He regularly changed the name of his firm, for Example Stillfried & Co, ( 1871 - 1874); The Japan Photographic Association ( 1876) , and Stillfried and Andersen (1876 - 1879) , the firm that took over Beato's stock in 1877. Von Stillfried and Andersen produced an album, Views and costumes of Japan, in the late 1870s" All custom photographs in a contemporary handcolouring. All views in black and white. We tried to identify the photographers. Some we could trace by books on the history of photography in Japan (as indicated) , others were identified by means of the Japanese old photographs database of the Nagasaki University. Presumably a lot of pictures are much older as 1878 as Stillfried take over the entire stock of Beato. We assume there are even pre 1870 photographs. A detailed description is giving below. The photographs of Nagasaki/ Desima are all quite rare as they aren't in the database nor in the important work on Deshima : "Deshima. Its pictorial heritage ".

But a remarkeble copy of the first edition in a Prize Binding. with the seven plates in very fine condition. elephant folio. ca 60 x 45 cm. FIRST EDITION. SCARPA'S ANATOMIC MASTERPIECE. The seven life-size plates, engraved from Scarpa's own drawings by Faustino Anderloni (1766-1847), "show his [Scarpa's] mastery of both anatomy and draughtsmanship. Technical drawing in architecture, engineering, and anatomy sometimes not only achieves its primary purpose, but, passing beyond the transmission of information, reaches an excellence akin to that of commissioned fine art. Scarpa's work is of this quality. Until 1794 various engravers from Milan, London, Vienna, and Florence were employed to put Scarpa's ink drawing on the copperplates; in that year, Scarpa employed and trained Faustino Anderloni, one of a family of engravers, whose work comes to match the achievement of the anatomist-illustrator. In later publications Anderloni, presumably closely watched by Scarpa, made both the drawing and the engraving from Scarpa's preparations. The paper used for the impressions, the inks, and the presswork were of a quality appropriate to contemporary fine printing in Italy, headed by the Bodoni presses in Parma. The plates of Scarpa and Anderloni must stand among the finest anatomical illustrations ever produced" (Roberts & Tomlinson p. 376). The plates in this work illustrate the human glossopharyngeal, vagus and hypoglossal nerves, which had never before been correctly shown. Scarpa was also the first to delineate correctly the nerves of the heart, and showed that the terminal ramifications of the cardiac nerves are directly connected to cardiac muscular fibers. Scarpa also showed that nerves are not always excited by a stimulus, which shed light on the inhibitory function of the cardiac nerves.

Item Description: Amsterdam, G.J.A. Beijerinck, 1847. viii, (2), 357, (1) pp. Contemporary half calf with gilt title marbled boards. Some slight worning. In very good if not fine condition. Important provenance. Copy from the library at Deshima. With contenporary manuscript ex-libris on first pastedown 'Bibliotheek te Desima, no. 32' (corrected from 35), and with the same number on a ticket on the front side. Also with later ex-libris of W.M. v.d. Tak, consul of the NHM-post at Yokohama. Rare work by the Dutch historian and linguist Gerard Lauts (1787-1865) on the history and government institutions of Japan and its relations with Europe. Lauts is famous for his writings on Dutch linguistics and Dutch overseas expansion. His standard work in 7 volumes is: Geschiedenis van de vestiging, uitbreiding, bloei en verval van de magt der Nederlanders in Indië (1852-66). Ulrich Gerard Lauts (1787-1865) was Dutch historian & literator. In 1830 he became professor at the "Kon. Instituut voor het Zeewezen" in Medemblik. Most of his works deal with overseas territories and possessions. In the foreword he claims to be different to other writers on Japan, as he consulted many manuscripts and used oral communication from government officials and J. Cock Blomhoff, the former head of Deshima. Indeed, the book offers an in-depth analysis of the development of the trade of the Dutch with the Japanese, and the attempts and failures of other nations to do so. - Very rare.

Binding worn and ( slightly damaged ) otherwise in very good condition 'Natuurkundig Tijdschrift voor Nederlandsch Indie', Batavia, 1850 - 1860 contains a large number of articles by P.J.Maier, 'together with Dr. Bleeker [the famous ichthyologist], founding member and governor of the 'Natuurkundige Vereeniging in Nederlandsch - Indië' established in 1850. Maier was also director of the Museum of the Dutch - Indies Society of Industry, hosting an important exhibition in 1853 in Batavia ['Tentoonstellingsatalogus van producten der natuur en der industrie van den Indischen Archipel' (Batavia, Lange & Co., 1853]. Maier had been in the Indies since the mid forties, working his way up in the ranks as Apothecary 1st Class and 1st laboratory assistant, up to a Major's rank and with full responsibility for the chemical laboratory in Batavia. Maier's name is no longer found in the minutes of the board meetings of the 'Natuurkundige Vereeniging' [renamed 'Koninklijke Natuurkundige Vereeniging''in 1859] from December 1855 onwards. Many of the manuscript accounts in this volume ended up in the vols. of the 'Verhandelingen', among which his account of the extraction of campherous oil in Japan and the lay out of a Japanese chemical laboratory. The information was acquired by Maier from a Japanes chemist who responded to a letter sent by Maier in June 1851. The said Japanes chemist further comments on the rather poor standard of chemistry in Japan, which is primarily based on the works of the european authors Ypey, Smallenburg, Boommes [Baumes?], Berzelius, Tromsdorf. The printed article appeared in Vol. X (7th part of the new series), 1856. It can be found in the manuscript notes on pp. 7 - 9 accompanied by 10 - 12 very nice pencil drawings of the actual process of manufacture & distillation, based on the lay out of a japanese laboratory. The opening pages of the manuscript describe 'de minerale bronnen te Oresino en Takiwo' [the mineral spas at Oresino & Takiwo']. Another article on Japan may be found on pp. 141 - 142, 220 & 221 on the 'scheikundig onderzoek van Japan'sche Muntsoorten' [chemical reseach into Japanese species of coins]. In the blank margins we find 8 small pencil drawings illustrating [gold] coins called 'boontje', halfboontje' and 'kwartboontje'. On pp. 221 a further 4 illustrations of golden coins & copper coins. Maier's research often focused on chemical analysis of mineral waters, coal, iron ore, tin, obsidian, copper, gold and silver for coins, vanilla plants, chinese medicine, etc. The manuscrip.

A beautifully illustrated work. Salomon de Caus (1576, Dieppe 1626) was a French Huguenot engineer, once (falsely) credited with the development of the steam engine. He was the elder brother of Isaac de Caus. Being a Huguenot, Caus spent his life moving across Europe. He worked as an hydraulic engineer and architect under Louis XIII. Caus also designed gardens in England, that of Somerset House among them; also, the Hortus Palatinus, or Garden of the Palatinate, in Heidelberg, Germany. In 1615, he published a book showing a steam-driven pump similar to one developed by Giovanni Battista della Porta fourteen years earlier. Nevertheless, François Arago called him the inventor of the steam engine as a result. In this same book, Les Raisons des forces mouvantes, Caus presents[1] a well-known just-intonation scale, now known as the Ellis Duodene, after Alexander John Ellis who reinvented it. It is to Caus that the term work is owed in the sense that it is used in the field of mechanics. The plates in the first 2 parts show fountains, hugh grottoes with (moving) statues, water clocks, musical fountains (2 full-page engr. musical score: a madrigal of A. Strigio) water ballet fountains, a fire engine, sawing-machine, make a stuffed bird sing, powered by water (one illustration shows a fountain powered by the sun), (terraced) garden designs, aviaries, etc. The 3rd parts treats organ-building. -.
