      1571. "Anonima pianta prospettica della città basata sul modello del Maestro ICA edito da Domenico de Franceschi nel 1565. In realtà si tratta di una replica di riduzioni di qeusto modello, pubblicate a Venezia da Paolo Forlani, Ferrando e Donato Bertelli e anche G. F. Camocio. Se tutte queste piante citate sono note alle bibliografie, questa pianta è invece sconosciuta ai principali repertori cartografici sulla città (Schulz, Cassini, Romanelli-Biadene e Moretto). Ne abbiamo censito un esemplare nell'esemplare del ""Isole che son da Venetia nella Dalmatia et per tutto l'arcipelago fino a Costantinopoli"" conservato alla Stanford University. Incisione in rame, lievi pieghe di carta, con margini, in eccellente stato di conservazione. Della massima rarità." Venezia Venice Non descritta. 260 190

        Insulae Americanae in Oceano Septentrionali

      Artist: Blaeu Willem Janszoon ( - 1638 ) Amsterdam; issued in: Amsterdam; date: 1630 1571 - - technic: Copper print; colorit: original colored; condition: Very good; size in cm : 38,5 x 52,5 - description: map of the Caribbean Islands - Vita of the artist: "Joan Guilliemus Blaeu was the eldest son of Willem Janszoon Blaeu (1571-1638), and was probably born in Alkmaar in the province of Noord-Holland in the final years of the 16th century. He was brought up in Amsterdam, and studied law at the University of Leiden before going into partnership with his father in the 1630s. Although his father Willem had cartographic interests, having studied under the Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe and having manufactured globes and instruments, his primary business was as a printer. It was under the control of Joan that the Blaeu printing press achieved lasting fame by moving towards the printing of maps and expanding to become the largest printing press in Europe in the 17th century.By the 1660s the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum (or Atlas Maior as it had became known by this time) had expanded to between 9 and 12 volumes, depending on the language. With over 3,000 text pages and approximately 600 maps, it was the most expensive book money could buy in the later 17th century. The translation of the text from Latin into Dutch, English, German, French, and Spanish for several volumes created enormous work for those involved in typography and letterpress activities. It is estimated that over 80 men must have been employed full-time in the Blaeu printing house in Bloemgracht, not including engravers who worked elsewhere, with over 15 printing presses running simultaneously, and in 1667 a second press was acquired at Gravenstraat. At the same time as producing the Atlas Maior, Blaeu was also publishing town plans of Italy, maps for globes, and other volumes. At its peak the Blaeu press managed to produce over 1 million impressions from 1,000 copper plates within four years."

        Peripateticarum Quaestionum Libri Quinque.

      Venice: Giunta, 1571. First edition, and a fine copy in a contemporary binding, of this very rare work which coined the phrase “circulation of the blood” (<em>circulatio sanguinis, </em>f. 111v) and provided the theoretical basis for Harvey’s experimental and quantitative treatment in <em>De motu cordis</em> (1628). “Cesalpino preceded Harvey in the discovery of the concept of the circulation, and Harvey must have known of his ideas” (Garrison-Morton). “Cesalpino’s most important medical studies concern the anatomy and physiology of the movement of the blood. He gave a good description of the cardiac valves and of the pulmonary vessels connected to the heart, as well as of the minor blood circulation; he also recognized that the heart is the center of the circulation of the blood and accepted the existence of the traditional synanastomoses of the arteries with the veins. He did not, however, discover the major circulation (first demonstrated in 1628 by William Harvey)” (DSB). “No-one who reads Cesalpino impartially can deny the eminent part that he played in the discovery of the circulation of the blood” (Castiglioni, p. 438). ABPC/RBH lists only three other copies in contemporary bindings sold at auction in the last 60 years: Norman copy, Christie’s New York, March 18, 1998, lot 61, $36,800 (“title page stained at edges and with removed stamp”); Swann, May 24, 2001, lot 50, $33,350 (“wormholes through front cover & blank outer margin of opening leaves, title page stamped”); Friedman copy, Sotheby’s New York, November 16, 2001, lot 29, $110,000 (“repaired tear to title page, spine head repaired, C4,5 guarded”). In their description of the Friedman copy, Sotheby’s noted that “the only copy to surface at Anglo-American auctions in the past century was that of Haskell F. Norman.”</p> <p>“In Quaestio IIII (ff. 107-112) of his <em>Peripatetic problems, </em>Cesalpino first made the critical point, repeated in his later works, that blood flows in a perpetual movement into the heart from the veins and from the heart to the arteries. This statement, as Pagel has noted, marked “a breakaway from Galen and a stepping-stone for Harvey” (p. 171); Cesalpino “replaced [Galen's doctrine] by the more sophisticated idea of arterio-venous plexuses in which the blood is conveyed to the organs by the arteries, although part of it comes from the veins. With this Cesalpinus seems to have taken a progressive step in the direction of the truth — however far this is still removed from Harvey’s idea of the closed arterio-venous circle” (p. 187).</p> <p>“Cesalpino examined contemporary medical and anatomical research in the light of Aristotelian rather than Galenic philosophy (the “Peripatetic” in this work’s title alludes to Aristotle’s Peripatetic school). His theory of the <em>circulatio sanguinis </em>as a rhythmic to-and-fro movement was based on the Aristotelian model of hot evaporating matter driven upward and then returning to its source after cooling; it emphasized both the continuity and circularity of the cardiovascular system and its essentially automatic, repeating character. Harvey used the same Aristotelian model in <em>De motu cordis </em>— as a student at the Aristotelian University of Padua, Harvey could hardly have escaped noticing Cesalpino’s work, which was very popular with students in Italy and Germany” (Norman).</p> <p>“In 1571, Andrea Cesalpino (1524–1603), with whose medical works Harvey must have also been acquainted, published <em>Peripateticarum Quaestionum Libri Quinque</em>, a systematic book on the basis of the Aristotelian philosophical framework. In it, he described quite accurately the heart valves and the pulmonary vessels connected to the heart, as well as the pulmonary circulation. Although Cesalpino had not attained a thorough knowledge, founded on anatomical research, of the entire course of the blood, he speculated that the heart is the center of the <em>circulatio sanguinis</em> (blood circulation), a term that he coined, and specified that blood flows in a perpetual movement into the heart from the veins and from the heart to the arteries. He examined experimentally the difference between the blood flow in veins and that in arteries, and he deduced the presence of <em>vasa in capillamenta resoluta</em>, the invisible hair-like “capillaries,” as he was the first to name them, between the two vascular networks; he did, however, acknowledge that these connections were “what the Greeks call <em>anastomoses</em>”.</p> <p>“Cesalpino operated on living animals, exposed the pulsating arteries and accompanying veins, and investigated what ensued when he cut off the flow through them. He ascertained that when he ligated an artery, it bulged on the cardiac side, implying flow toward the periphery; in contrast, when he ligated a vein, the bulge ensued on the peripheral side, implying flow toward the heart. Moreover, in Quaestio IV of the <em>Peripatetic Problems</em>, the pulmonary circulation is identified unambiguously, although its function is considered to be one of cooling. In paragraph 11, Cesalpino states: “From the contact with cold air or water during its passage (through lungs or gills), nature has provided a cooling process. The lung, then, draws warm blood through the vein-like artery [<em>vena arterialis</em>, i.e., pulmonary artery] from the right ventricle of the heart and returns it through anastomoses to the <em>arteria venosa</em> [pulmonary vein(s)], which enters the left heart … Dissection corroborates this ‘<em>circulatio sanguinis</em>’ from the right ventricle of the heart through the lungs and to the left ventricle of the same. For, there are two vessels which connect into the right ventricle and two into the left. Of these two, one introduces blood only, while the other conducts it out with its valves constituted for that purpose. The vessel which leads in is the great vein on the right which is called the vena cava. The one on the left, leading in from the lung, is small, and has a single coat like other veins. The vessel leading out on the left is the great artery and is called the <em>arteria aorta</em>; the vessel on the right is small, however, and leads to the lungs, and has two coats like other arteries.”</p> <p>“The preceding excerpt bears upon the question of Cesalpino’s place in history and demonstrates that he had probably penetrated into the enigma of the Circulation further than any other physiologist before Harvey—in Italy, he is regarded as the real discoverer. However, it is highly unlikely that this is a valid allegation. Consider the following: <em>De Venarum Ostiolis</em>, the treatise of the illustrious teacher of Harvey, Fabricius of Aquapendente, was published in 1603, more than 30 years after Cesalpino's own <em>Peripateticarum Quaestionum Libri Quinque</em>, and a year after Harvey left Padua. It provides undeniable direct evidence of Fabricius’s and indirect consequential evidence of Cesalpino’s total ignorance of the simple hydraulics of blood in the systemic loop.</p> <p>“In it, Fabricius writes that the purpose of the valves in the veins was not to ensure the unidirectional flow to the right heart, but to prevent over-distension of the veins by blood passing through the venous trunks to their tributaries, and also to retard the progress of the venous current so as to afford each part, or organ, time to procure its proper nutriment (in agreement with the Galenic concept). Fabricius also noted that arteries do not need valves because they are not liable to over-distension, given the strength and thickness of their coats. Neither are valves needed to retard the blood stream, because in the arteries there is perpetual flux and reflux of blood (<em>quod sanguinis fluxus refluxusque in arteriis perpetuo fiat</em>). Such, then, was the state of understanding of the systemic loop taught by Harvey's teacher more than 30 years after the publication of Cesalpino's <em>Peripateticarum Quaestionum Libri Quinque.</em></p> <p>“The understanding as to the function of the valves was … that they were present to sustain the column of venous blood and thus prevent blood from stagnating at the extremities of the limbs with a consequent unequal distribution of nutriment—a view that was the only conceivable one without the complete refutation of the then current and universally accepted Galenic notions on the movements of the blood” (Pasipoularides).</p> <p>“Cesalpino (1519-1603) studied philosophy and medicine at Pisa, where he received the doctorate in 1551. Four years later he succeeded his teacher Luca Ghini as professor of medicine and director of the botanical garden at Pisa. In 1592 he was called to Rome as physician to Pope Clement VIII and, simultaneously, professor at the Sapienza, where he taught until his death” (DSB). Cesalpino is perhaps best known as a “botanist who sought a philosophical and theoretical approach to plant classification based on unified and coherent principles rather than on alphabetical sequence or medicinal properties. He helped establish botany as an independent science” (Britannica).</p> <p>Garrison-Morton 755; Hirsch, I, pp. 866-68; Lilly Library Notable Medical Books 45; Norman 430; Osler 901; Waller 1877; Willius & Dry, <em>History of the heart and the circulation</em>, pp. 43-44, 369.

Leone führte ein unruhiges Leben: Er nahm einen Beruf nach dem anderen auf und wurde ein besessener Spieler, was ihn und seine Familie oft in finanzielle Bedrängnis brachte. Sein Lieblingssohn Mordechai starb im November 1617 bei alchimistischen Experimenten, in deren Folge ihn sein Vater tödlich vergiftet hatte. Das traf Leone Modena schwer, er unterzog sein bisheriges Leben einer strengen Selbstprüfung, deren Frucht die äußerst widersprüchliche Autobiographie chajje Jehuda ist, eine offen-ehrliche Abrechnung, in der er sich als gescheiterte Existenz bekennt und mit der er in seiner Zeit einzigartig dasteht.

The translation of the text from Latin into Dutch, English, German, French, and Spanish for several volumes created enormous work for those involved in typography and letterpress activities. It is estimated that over 80 men must have been employed full-time in the Blaeu printing house in Bloemgracht, not including engravers who worked elsewhere, with over 15 printing presses running simultaneously, and in 1667 a second press was acquired at Gravenstraat. At the same time as producing the Atlas Maior, Blaeu was also publishing town plans of Italy, maps for globes, and other volumes. At its peak the Blaeu press managed to produce over 1 million impressions from 1,000 copper plates within four years.

        CANZONE NELLA FELICISSIMA VITTORIA CHRISTIANA CONTRA INFIDELI.

      - Del Caualier Guarnello. CANZONE NELLA FELISSIMA VITTORIA CHRISTIANA CONTRA INFIDELI. AL SERENISS. D. GIO. D&#146; AVSTRIA. c. 1571. Eight pages, including a full decorated title page, verso blank, capital header on A2, five pages of text, with the one-page dedicatory poem under different header on A4b. Text in Italian. Sewn but disbound, yet fine with no chips, tears, or foxing. The victory of The Holy League, a coalition of Catholic states assembled by Pope Pius V, in the Battle of Lepanto in October, 1571, halted the advance of the Ottoman Empire in the eastern Mediterranean. This was the last great European sea battle to be fought mainly by galleys. It drew an outpouring of celebratory paintings and literary works in both Latin and the vernacular languages of the region. Very scarce. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Napoli città nella provincia della Morea

      1571. Quest'opera, come era usuale per Camocio e altri editori suoi contemporanei, fu messa in commercio come carta sciolta prima di essere poi inserita nel volume Isole famose, porti, fortezze e terre marittime sottoposte alla Serenissima Signoria di Venetia, ed altri Principi Christiani, et al Signor Turco, nouamente poste in luce. In Venetia alla libreria del segno di San Marco. Di questa circolazione separata dal volume, esistono delle prove prive di numerazione, vendute come fogli sciolti, che si trovano in alcune raccolte lafreriane. Gli esemplari con la numerazione sono, invece, quelli inseriti negli Isolari. Raro primo stato di due. In buono stato di conservazione. THE RARE FIRST STATE of the map of the the fortified city of Nafplion, then under Ottoman control. In parallel to the IATO assembled in Rome and Venice, the Venetians continued to issue collections in the form of Isolario, expanded to contain plans and bird's - eye - views of towns and fortresses. Like the larger maps of The IATO these smaller ones were first issued for a loose sheet circulation, and then assembled in booklet form for interested customer. This developments suggested by a few surviving copies of a booklet first circulated with a varying number of contents, without title page or date of issue, and later with un undated title page and then with the contents more uniformly arranged and, finally supplied with an engraved consecutive numbering. The booklet usually passes under the name "Isole Famose, porti , fortezze e terre maritime sottoposte alla Ser. Sig. di Venetia" (1571) and bear the Camocio's name as a publisher. Venezia Venice G. Tolias, Mapping Greece, 0388; Zacharakis, A Catalogue of Printed Maps of Greece, 805. 225 160
