Giovanni Francesco CAMOCIO (Attivo a Venezia tra 1558 - 1575)
1571. Sopot fu una fortezza situata all'interno dell'odierna Albania, all'altezza delle coste settentrionali di Corfu ed ai confini con la Grecia. Sotto il dominio Ottomano fu oggetto di diversi attacchi delle truppe veneziane, rimanendo tuttavia sotto il controllo Turco. Secondo la Borroni Salvadori il modello usato dal Nelli per uesta veduta fu la stampa incisa da Domenico Zenoi, probabilmente nello stesso anno. 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. Sopot was a fortress in the hinterland of the Albanian coast north of Kerkyra. It had been Turkish since the end of the 15th century and attacked by Venice several times between 1570 and 1572. But it remained under Ottoman rule in a treaty of 1573. According with Borroni, the model for this view was the plate etched by Domenico Zenoi (Venice 1570 ca). In parallel to the IATO assembled in Rome and Venice, the Venetians continued to issue collections in the form of Isola … [Click Below for Full Description]

Theodor ZWINGER
Basileae, ex Officina Flobeniana. Theodor Zwinger (Basilea, 2 agosto 1533 - Basilea, 10 marzo 1588) é stato uno scienziato svizzero.

Ammesso nel 1548 nell'Accademia, segué con profitto le lezioni ma, preso dal desiderio di viaggiare, parté da Basilea pié carico di libri che di denaro e si diresse a Lione, persuaso che il proprio talento per la poesia non potesse non procurargli amici e mecenati. Qui frequenté per tre anni la tipografia dei Bering come proto.Andato a Parigi, vi frequenté i corsi dei pié celebri professori, tra gli altri quelli di Pietro Ramo, del quale Theodor riconobbe in seguito la benevolenza. Dopo cinque anni, nel 1553, torné a Basilea ma, dietro consiglio di Pietro Perna, editore di Lucca, espatriato per motivi religiosi, parté subito per l'Italia.

Weder übernahm er in der Medizin unbefragt mittelalterli-che Vorstellungen noch stellte er sich einseitig auf „moderne" medizinische Positionen.

BRANCA, Giovanni.
Cat. of Wheeler gift 96; Dibner, Heralds of science, 175; Honeyman 497; ICCU (8 copies); Norman Lib. 333; not in Roberts & Trent, Bibliotheca mechanica. First and only edition of a famous book of woodcuts depicting all imaginable sorts of mechanical devices and engines to ease and extend the manual labour of man, forming at the same time a pictorial guidebook to their construction and use. It was conceived and written by Giovanni Branca (1571-1640), engineer and architect. The page facing each woodcut gives a brief explanation in Italian (above) and Latin (below). Many in the first series show mechanized versions of common chores, such as sawing wood, threshing and milling grain, spinning flax, drawing water, ringing bells, lifting or dragging heavy objects, etc. Number 25 is the first illustration of a steam turbine as well as the first illustration of the practical application of steam power, in this case to pound pestles in mortars. While all sections include hydraulic equipment, the second series is devoted primarily to pumps. Number 5 shows an Archimedes screw. Many in the last series are hydraulic as well, including applications in mining. Number 21 uses a hydraulic device to pump air for a pipe organ.

Willem BLAEU Amsterdam, circa 1640. Copper engraving with colour in outline (decorative recent colour, in a good condition), 37 x 48 cm.
Detailed map of Venezuela. The Blaeu Family: The Leading Cartographers of the 17th Century Willem Jansz Blaeu (1571-1638) was, more than any other figure, responsible for the ascension of Dutch cartography to a globally dominant position. Blaeu, originally from Alkmaar, north of Amsterdam, got his start while serving as an apprentice to the legendary Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe at his observatory of Uranienborg, from 1594 to 1596. Upon Willem’s return to the Netherlands, he started a business making charts, globes and nautical instruments. His timing was impeccable, as the Dutch economy, based on maritime trade, was booming and there was an insatiable demand for high quality sea charts and nautical kit. Notably, in 1596, the Dutch made their first voyage to the East Indies, which led the establishment of the Dutch East India Company in 1602. The VOC would be one of Blaeu’s anchor clients and in 1633 he was appointed the Company’s official hydrographer. Blaeu’s sea atlas of European waters, Het Licht der Zee-vaert (1608) was revolutionary, being the first broadly accurate maritime atlas. He went on to create magnificent wall maps, large-format charts and eventually terrestrial atlases, all decorated with the finest Dutch Baroque artistry. In particular, the Pascaarte van alle de Zecusten van Europa (1621) helped to establish Blaeu’s supremacy in the highly competitive Dutch cartography market. Towards the end of his life, Willem Blaeu published the Atlas Novus (1635), a grand production that would be progressively expanded to include new volumes featuring all of the known … [Click Below for Full Description]
