Complete works of Samuel Marolois (1572-1627), including the works of his predecessor Jan Vredeman de Vries (1527-ca. 1606/08) that were edited with numerous additions by Marolois. Marolois was a French mathematician, who published in the Low Countries and taught Henricus Hondius. Here all the works are edited, corrected and revised by Albert Girard, who also revised the mathematical works of Simon Stevin. Marolois's Geometria presents a thorough pictorial course of all aspects of geometry and its application to measurement, proportion, surveying, perspective, etc. His Fortificationis , first published at The Hague in 1615, represents the most outstanding text book, richly illustrated, on the Dutch art of fortification at the beginning of the 17th century. Vredeman de Vries's Architectura , originally the third volume of his Perspectiva , gives a pictorial course in the basic rules of architectural design, with plates by De Vries and his most gifted pupil and successor, Hendrik Hondius (1573-1650). The text consists mainly of the explanations of the plates.In good condition, with the lower outside corner of the first part of the second volume frayed, without affecting the text; some minor water stains and foxing. Bindings worn but skillfully repaired. Rare early editions of Marolois's works, issued with a general title-page and in a contemporary binding.

        Gregorio XIII

      1572 - Bulino, 1572 circa, privo di firma e dati editoriali. Bella impressione, nitida e ben contrastata, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con filigrana "doppia stella nel cerchio", margini di circa 1,5 – 2 cm, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Nella parte inferiore dell’immagine, una didascalia in latino su due righe 'Gregorius XIII Pont Max Assumptis Pontificalibus insignis quod coronationis munus nuncupatur populo benedicens vaticanum ingreditur VIII KAL M.D.LXXII' La scesa rappresenta papa Gregorio XIII, al secolo Ugo Boncompagni, sulla sedia gestatoria che benedice la folla, mentre fa il suo ingresso in Vaticano, il 24 giugno 1572. Il cardinale Boncompagni, bolognese fu eletto pontefice il 13 maggio del 1572, il giorno di S. Gregorio Magno, per cui scelse per sé il nome del santo. Com'è noto, Gregorio XIII riformò il calendario giuliano, allora in vigore, da allora denominato calendario gregoriano; mentre splendida testimonianza dei suoi interessi scientifici, storici e letterari è la Galleria delle carte geografiche in Vaticano, oggi inserita nel percorso dei Musei. La Galleria è lunga 120 metri, larga 6. Le pareti sono per intero ricoperte dalla rappresentazione delle regioni d’Italia nella restituzione cartografica del grande matematico e geografo Egnazio Danti. La stessa lastra verrà utilizzata da De Cavalleris, per l’insediamento di Sisto V, successore di Gregorio XIII, nel 1585, correggendo lo stemma araldico, la data e il nome del Pontefice. L’abrasione della lastra è visibile e lascia intravedere il testo sottostante. Interessante e rara opera. Engraving, ca. 1572, without date and signature. Lettered along bottom 'Gregorius XIII Pont Max Assumptis Pontificalibus insignis quod coronationis munus nuncupatur populo benedicens vaticanum ingreditur VIII KAL M.D.LXXII' A very good impression, printed on contemporary laid paper, with watermark "double star", and margins of about 150/200 mm, in a very good condition. The scene depicts pope Gregorius XIII, seated on the gestatorial-chair, giving his blessing to his loyal and devoted supporters. Cardinal Ugo Boncompagni was elected pope on May 13, 1572 after a one-day conclave. He is best known for commissioning and being the namesake for the Gregorian calendar, which remains the internationally accepted civil calendar to this day. Splendid testimony of his scientific historical and literary interests, is the Gallery of Maps in the Vatican. The same plate was late printed by De Cavalleris in 1585, in honor of Sisto V.

        Rime

      Comin da Trino, 1572. 8vo (151x102 mm). (15, lacking the first blank leaf), 121 [i.e. 126, leaves 54, 63, 64, 107 and 108 repeated in numbering], (6) leaves. With a woodcut device on the title-page and at the end. Contemporary vellum, spine covered by a red paper with label and ink title, slightly rubbed and worn, a good and genuine copy. FIRST EDITION (variant issue in which the blank leaf Q7 is replaced by a bifolium containing a sonnet by Domenico Venier and the errata). The volume is dedicated by Celio Magno to Giulio Contarini (Zara, October 20, 1572) and also contains a life of Molino written by the painter Giovanni Mario Verdizzotti, a pupil of Titian. This verse collection represents a kind of summa of the Venetian neo-Petrarchism and contains at the end a "tombeau poétique' in Molino's memory, including verses by Lauro Badoer, Girolamo Fioretti, Federico Frangipane, Giorgio Gradenigo, Pietro Gradenigo, Nicolò Macheropio, Celio Magno, Domenico Vernier, and some anonymous authors (cf. E. Taddeo, Il manierismo letterario e i lirici veneziani del tardo Cinquecento, Rome, 1974, pp. 73-91). "Nel 1569 muore Girolamo Molino. Gli amici, Domenico Venier in primo luogo, promuovono la pubblicazione delle sue rime; Celio Magno le dedica a Giulio Contarini. Il compito di scrivere la vita dell'autore è affidata al Verdizotti. Anche in questo caso egli coglie l'occasione per dare al libro un particolare sapore. Si celebra la collaborazione fra grandi personaggi di generazioni diverse: si ricorda l'amicizia del giovane Molino con i vecchi maestri, il Bembo, Triphon Gabriele, il Trissino, e con personaggi illustri, con cui minore era lo stacco generazionale, come Domenico Venier, il Navagero, Daniele Barbaro, Bernardo Cappello, Luigi Cornaro, lo Speroni, Bernardo Tasso, Giulio Camillo. Il Verdizotti ricorda anche che l'amore per la poesia volgare conviveva nel Molin con l'interesse per la pittura, la scultura, la musica, e che anche conosceva la lingua ebraica, oltre al greco e al latino. Interessante è anche il ritratto morale del personaggio, non si sposa per non turbare l'otium degli studi letterari, ma non è certo insensibile al fascino delle belle donne; accetta raramente incarichi pubblici, ma si indigna per il cattivo uso che altri ne fanno: si arrabbiava, scrive il Verdizotti, contro coloro che "carichi di ricchezza e ornati di grande autorità, non facessero molte cose degne di loro, come si può tener per certo ch'egli fatto haverebbe'. La vita del Molin scritta dal Verdizotti tende dunque a tramutarsi nella celebrazione di un ambiente, nella appassionata rievocazione di un momento magico della vita culturale veneziana" (L. Bolzoni, La stanza della memoria. Modelli letterari e iconografici nell'età della stampa, Turin, 1995, p. 36). "Since musical activity in Venier's salon functioned as a pastime rather than a central activity, and since the academy kept no formal records of its meetings, concrete evidence of links between musicians and men of letters is scarce... Among literati the most intriguing link may be found in the figure of Molino, Venier's aristocratic poet friend and acquaintance of Parabosco. Molino's stature in Venetian society was considerable, despite family battles that cost him an extended period of poverty and travail. A bust sculpted by Alessandro Vittoria for the tiny Cappella Molin in Santa Maria del Giglio - where a great number of reliquaries owned by the family are still preserved - portrays Molino as the embodiment of gerontocratic wisdom. In 1573 his posthumous biographer, Giovan Mario Verdizzotti, wrote that of all the arts Molino had delighted in understanding music most of all. The remark is supported by earlier evidence. Several composers based in Venice and the Veneto - Jean Gero, Francesco Portinaro, and Antonio Molino (no relation) - set Molino's seemingly little-accessible verse to music before its publication in 1573, four years after the poet's death... Molino himself may have performed solo song, as Stampa seems to hint in a sonnet dedicated to him with the words "Qui convien sol la tua cetra, e "l tuo canto, / Chiaro Signor' ("Here only your lyre is fitting, and your song, / eminent sir'). In Petrarchan poetry the idea of singing, and singing to the lyre, is of course a metaphorical adaptation of classical convention to mean simply poetizing, without intent to evoke real singing and playing. But Stampa's poems make unusual and pointed separations between the acts of "scrivere' and "cantare' that suggest she meant real singing here. Other contemporaries specifically point up Molino's knowledge of theoretical and practical aspects of music. In 1541, Giovanni del Lago dedicated his extensive collection of musical correspondence to Molino, whom he declared held "the first degree in the art of music' ("nell'arte di Musica tiene il primo grado'). Further, he claimed, "Your Lordship... merits... the dedication of the present epistles, in which are contained various questions about music... And certainly one sees that few today are found (like you) learned... in such a science, but yet adorned with kindness and good morals'. Del Lago's correspondence was theoretically oriented in church polyphony. One of its most striking aspects is its recognition of connections between music and language that parallel those embodied in the new Venetian madrigal style. Del Lago insisted that vernacular poetry be complemented with suitable musical effects and verbal syntax with musical phrasing. In discussing these relationships he developed musically the Ciceronian ideals of propriety and varietas. His dedication to Molino therefore presents a fascinating bridge between patronage in Venier's circle and developments in Venetian music. Yet taken in sum these sources show Molino's musical patronage embracing two different traditions, each quite distinct: one, the arioso tradition of improvisers and frottolists; the other, the learned tradition of church polyphonists. Molino's connection with both practices reinforces the impression that Venetian literati prized each of them" (M. Feldman, City culture and the madrigal at Venice, Berkeley, CA, 1995, pp. 113-116; see also E. Greggio, Girolamo da Molino, in: "Ateneo Veneto", ser. 18, vol. 2, 1894, pp. 188-202 and 255-323). The printing of the volume has been attributed to Comino da Trino, a typographer active in Venice from 1539 to 1573, and probaly represents his last work (cf. E. Vaccaro, Le marche dei tipografi ed editori italiani del XVI secolo nella Biblioteca Angelica di Roma, Florence, 1983, p. 254). Edit 16, CNCE48399; Universal STC, no. 843040; I. Pantani, Biblia.

      Adams L300; Caillet 6237; Dorbon 2509 ("très rare"); cf. "Of ghosts and spirits walking by night by Ludwig Lavater, 1572" at: British Library online. Second edition of the Latin translation of a work on ghosts, phantoms and apparitions of people who have passed away, written by the Swiss theologian Ludwig Lavater (1527-1586). Besides ghosts, it deals with strange sounds, voices, inexplicable events and peculiar accidents occurring after someones death. Lavater denies that souls or ghosts of the dead could appear. If someone does see these apparitions, he should be aware that they aren't the souls of the deceased, but the work of demons. "As a Protestant, Lavater rejected the idea of Purgatory... as an outdated Catholic concept. This greatly complicated the idea of 'ghosts', often thought to be visitations by human souls that were not at rest, such as those who died unbaptized or in tragic or violent circumstances. Without Purgatory, ghosts could only be visitations from Heaven or Hell. Lavater felt they were more likely to have come from Hell, and this meant that many ghosts were demonic and their requests dangerous: they could be trying to lure humans into damnation, for example by persuading them to commit murder or suicide" (British Library).Minor water stain in the lower and upper margins of the last 40 leaves and in the upper margins of the first 15 leaves, otherwise a very good copy.

        Autricum, Prolemeo in Gallia Lugdunensis Urbs; vulgo, cum Villa nouano, Chartres / Chasteaudunum, Comitatus vulgo Dunoys in Gallia Oppidum primorium

      Cologne: Braun & Hogenberg. unbound. Two bird's-eye plans on one sheet. Copper engraving with original hand coloring. Image measures 13" x 18.75" These two bird's-eye plans on one sheet depict the French cities of Chartres and Châteaudun. Chartres is shown from the southeast, with its famous cathedral at the center of the frame towering over the comparatively diminutive city around it. This prized church became the model for many other Gothic churches and is nearly synonymous with the city in which it is located. A number of lesser churches are also shown in detail, as are houses, fields, and gardens. Similarly detailed is the map of Châteaudun, shown from the east as to clearly illustrate how the city leans up against the ridge of the hill to its right. This city's prominent buildings are the 12th-century chateau at the top right and the church of La Madeleine at the upper left. Its seal and coat of arms are also rendered. he print is from Braun's city atlas "Civitates Orbis Terrarum", a collection of city views and plans created as a companion to Ortelius' "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum" and published between 1572 and 1617. Latin text on verso. The plans are in very good condition with some overall toning and wear to the title of the Chartres view. Chips in the margins not affecting the image. Some mat burn and margin folds from being previously framed. Georg Braun (1541-1622) was a Catholic cleric who edited the "Civitates orbis terrarum," a collection of 546 prospects, bird's-eye views and maps of international cities. Hogenberg created the tables for the first 4 volumes. Together, these two geographers created a work that set new standard for cartography for the next century. These views demonstrate the high quality of their work.

      Artist: Braun/Hogenberg Franz/ Georg ( - 1618 ) Cologne; issued in : Cologne; date: 1590 1572 - - technic: Copper print; colorit: original colored; condition: Perfect condition; size (in cm): 35 x 47,5 - description: decorative bird s eye view of the harbour city Kolding in Denmark. Kolding is a Danish seaport located at the head of Kolding Fjord in the Region of Southern Denmark. It is the seat of Kolding Municipality. - vita of the artist: Frans Hogenberg (1535 ? 1590) was a Flemish and German painter, engraver, and mapmaker.Hogenberg was born in Mechelen as the son of Nicolaas Hogenberg In 1568 he was banned from Antwerp by the Duke of Alva. He travelled to London, where he stayed a few years before emigrating to Cologne. He is known for portraits and topographical views as well as historical allegories. He also produced scenes of contemporary historical events.George Braun (1541-1622), a cleric of Cologne, was the principal editor of the "Civitates Orbis Terrarum".The first volume of the Civitates Orbis Terrarum was published in Cologne in 1572. The sixth and the final volume appeared in 1617. This great city atlas, edited by Georg Braun and largely engraved by Franz Hogenberg, eventually contained 546 prospects, bird-eye views and map views of cities from all over the world. Braun (1541-1622), a cleric of Cologne, was the principal editor of the work, and was greatly assisted in his project by the close, and continued interest of Abraham Ortelius, whose Theatrum Orbis Terrarum of 1570 was, as a systematic and comprehensive collection of maps of uniform style, the first true atlas.

        Die neuwen inseln so hinder Hispanien gegen Orient bey dem Land Indie ligen

      Heinrich Petri, Basel 1572 - Map. Uncolored woodcut. Sheet measures 12" x 15.25" This important and influential 1572 map by Sebastian Munster is the first map to show North America and South America in their true continental forms. It is also significant in that it names the Pacific Ocean (Mare Pacificum) and the first printed map to ever show Japan (Zipangri), here appearing based on the accounts of Marco Polo. First published in 1544 in his Basel edition of Ptolemy's "Geographia", this map made several appearances in about 40 subsequent editions in 6 different languages. This particular map is the 13th state and appeared in the 1572 German edition of Munster's "Cosmographia". The map established some notable cartographic conventions of the time. Most notable is the oddly shaped North America without the California landmass. Florida, clearly identifiable, is connected by a narrow isthmus to "Francisca" further north east. Presumably so named after Francis I who sponsored Verrazano's expedition. This reflects the belief at the time of the Sea of Verrazano, a possible route to the West Indies. Yucatan appears as an island and Temistian empties into the Caribbean. A more recognizable South America depicts a bulging northwest and notes the region supposedly inhabited by Cannibals in modern day Brazil, with a vignette depicting human body parts. The map includes a very early appearance of the Straits of Magellan. Magellan's ship 'Victoria' also appears in the Pacific. A Spanish flag is seen flying on Puerto Rico while a Portuguese Flag appears in the South Atlantic, depicting their respective influence in the New World. Munster's inclusion of this map in his popular 1544 edition of "Cosmpgraphia" is also believed to have sealed the fate of "America" as the name for the New World. The map is in good condition with minor foxing at places. Minor wear along original centerfold and verso repair near top center margin. Claudius Ptolemy (90-168 CE) was a Roman geographer and mathematician living in Egypt, who compiled his knowledge and theories about the world's geography into one seminal work. Although his maps did not survive, his mathematical projections and location coordinates did. During the Renaissance revival of Greek and Roman works, "Geographia" was rediscovered by monks and based upon Ptolemy's detailed instructions, the maps were recreated. The first printed edition of "Geographia" with maps was published in Bologna in 1477. Professor Sebastian Munster (1488-1552) was a German cosmographer, humanist, theologian and scholar. His seminal work "Cosmographia" was published in numerous languages and is considered the most popular book of the 16th century. Furthermore, Munster is also credited with contributing to a revival of geography in Germany. This example is an exceptional example of this influential map.

Sein Spezialgebiet war die Landgewinnung sowie der Deich- und Festungsbau. 1600 wirkte er am Lehrbuch Practijck des lantmetens von Jan Pietersz mit, dass bei Willem Blaeu erschien. 1602 wurde Sems Landvermesser in Friesland. Ein Jahr später fertigte er eine detaillierte Karte von Leeuwarden an, die von Pieter Bast gedruckt wurde. Von 1604 bis 1608 beaufsichtigte er die Anlage der Festungen in Bourtange, Delfzijl und Bellingwolde. Etwa 1610 zog er nach Bunde. Das Bunder Neuland war seit 1604 mit Hilfe Amsterdamer Investoren eingepoldert worden. 1616 wurde Sems bei Einpolderungen bei Bredstedt hinzugezogen und beteiligte sich am Kanalsystem von Christianshavn auf Amager, kehrte aber 1618 zurück, um Grenzstreitigkeiten bei Ter Apel mit der Provinz Drente zu klären. 1621 war er wieder in Bunderneuland. Der Polder war inzwischen eine Art "Niemandsland" , was zu Streitereien zwischen dem Niederländern und Graf Enno III. führte. Ostfriesland stand aber schon seit Jahren unter derart niederländische Herrschaft, dass Enno sogar die Aufnahme Ostfrieslands in die Niederlande beantragte. Dies scheiterte jedoch an den Landständen. Im dreißigjährigen Krieg nutzen die Niederländer Ostfriesland allerdings als winterlichen Versorgungsstützpunkt und quartierten, ohne dass Enno irgendetwas hätte unternehmen können, ab 1622 die gefürchteten Truppen des Söldners Ernst von Mansfeld im Lande ein. 1623 befand sich Sems in Groningen und gab im gleichen Jahr sein Buch De arithmetische fundamenten in Emden heraus. Um diese Zeit wurde er auch zum Deichgrafen von Bunderneuland ernannt. 1625 wurde sein Polder bei Bredstedt durch eine Sturmflut wieder zerstört. 1626 erhielt er den Auftrag eine Karte vom Gebiet nördlich von Pieterburen zu zeichnen und zwei Jahre später arbeitete er am Festungsbau in Westerwolde mit. Er geriet aber zunehmend in finanzielle Schwierigkeiten, so dass von 1629 bis 1632 seine Einnahmen gepfändet wurden. 1635 starb er, nachdem er sich kurze Zeit in Niederländisch-Brasilien an Festungbauten beteiligt hatte.

With 73 lithographed plates (1 hand-coloured, as published). Contemporary half tanned sheepskin, marbled sides.

      BMC NH, p. 1572; Dean II, p. 266; Nissen ZBI, 3176; Ward 1777 (Paris issue); Zittel, pp. 366-367; cf. Wood, p. 519 (2nd edition). First edition of an influential handbook on palaeontology by the Swiss zoologist and paaleontologist François Jules Pictet de la Rive (1809-1872), illustrated with 73 lithographed plates containing numerous smaller illustrations. Pictet starts with an introduction to paleontology, and continues to discuss the fossils of mammals, birds, reptiles, fish, molluscs and plants."Feeling the want of a hand-book, he prepared his Traité élémentaire de paléontologie (4 vols. 1844-1846). In the first edition Pictet, while adopting the hypothesis of successive creations of species, admitted that some may have originated through the modification of pre-existing forms. In his second edition (1853-1857) he enters further into the probable transformation of some species, and discusses the independence of certain faunas, which did not appear to have originated from the types which locally preceded them" (Encyclopaedia Britannica).Each volume with the ca. 1880 bookplate of the Portuguese palaeontologist Paul Choffat (1849-1919) and the slightly later stamp of Jean Cuaz. Slightly browned and foxed, with the "explication des planches" of volume 1 (pp. 369-371) loosely inserted. Bindings rubbed along the extremities and slightly worn at the top and bottom of the spine, but otherwise in good condition.

      Gedruckt zu Augspurg, durch Mattheum Francken (Matthias Franck), 1572. - 9 Bll. ("Vorrede an den Liebhaber diser Kunst"), 382 num. Bll. [= 764 S.], Titel in rot/schwarz, Titelrückseite mit blattgroßem Wappenholzschnitt u. 117 kleinere Holzschnitte im Text, 8°, Goldgepr. Leder d. Zt. mit vier Bünden Vgl. VD 16, R 1146-47; Houzeau-Lancaster 2658 (ob eine von H.-L. genannte EA von 1568 existiert ist strittig u. wird auch in anderen Bibliografien nicht erwähnt); Adams R 357; Zinner 2501; Honeyman 2626. - Bedeutendes, sehr frühes astrologisches Werk in deutscher Sprache, nach dem Erstdruck von 1569 erschienen innerhalb von 8 Jahren fünf Aufl. Unter dem Titelanfang „Astronomia Teutsch", erschienen allerdings, auch früher, mehrere Schriften unterschiedlichem Inhalts. - Der Astronom u. Mathematiker Nicolaus Rensberger (1566-1576) vertrat im Gegensatz zum Determinismus die Auffassung, dass die Astrologie ein göttliches Werkzeug sei, um (im christlichen Sinn) ein besserer Mensch zu werden. Denn die Berechnungen bieten die Möglichkeit, angeborene Eigenschaften durch Selbsterkenntnis zum Besseren zu wenden. Die Weiterführung dieses Gedankens machte die moderne psychologische Astrologie erst möglich. Allerdings sind im vorliegenden Werk auch Texte anderer Autoren zusammengetragen. Das "Verzeichnis der Drucke des 16. Jh." nennt die Astronomen Johann Dryander, Jakob Köbel, Johannes Stöffler u. Johannes Eichmann. So sind einige Texte u. Holzschnitte dem bereits um 1550 erschienen Buch von Johannes Regiomontanus "Temporal. Des weitberühmten M. Johann Küngisperger natürlicher Kunst der Astronomey kurtzer Begriff [.]" (VD 16 M 6577) entnommen. - Das Werk besteht aus 4 Teilen: (I) Wie man soll rechnen den Mitteln und waren Lauf der Planeten. [Planetenlauf und Kalender für 1500-1606. Finsternisse. Erwählung der Häuser. Wirkung der 12. Zeichen und 7 Planeten. Jahresherrscher. Sternverzeichnis. Revolutio anni.]; (II) Das ander Buch. Das Buch von der Revolutionen der Jaren der Welt / Und was die Planeten bedeuten [.]. [Deutung der Revolutio anni und Jahresherrscher.]; (III) Das dritte Buch / oder Tractat / zeigt an / ein kurtzen un gerechten weg [.] [Judicium der Nativität durch N. Rensberger.]; (IV) Das vierdte Buch / Darinne wirdt angeziegt / wann der effect der Sternen wircken werde [.] [Deutung der künftigen Jahre aus dem Horoskop.]. - Im ersten Teil: 27 Seiten in rot/schwarz gedruckt (u.a. mit "Sonnenlauff"-Tafeln). Die Textholzschnitte zeigen die versch. Phasen der Sonnen- u. Mondfinsternisse von 1501-1605. In einer alten Titelaufnahme wird eine Planetenscheibe erwähnt, die fast immer fehlt. Wir haben keinen bibliographischen Nachweis gefunden, dass eine Scheibe vorhanden sein muss. In den Ausgaben von 1569 u. 1575 nach dem Titelblatt noch 2 ungezählte Bll., in denen der Verfasser das Buch einer Persönlichkeit der Zeit widmet (1569 "Herrn Waldrico Probsten", 1575 "Christoff Bernharten von Senholtzdorff"). Diese 2 Bll. fehlen in der vorliegenden Ausgabe. - Es handelt sich hier um eine Dublette der Augsburger Staatsbibliothek im geprägten Schweinsledereinband, die regulär in den Verkauf gelangte. Einband fleckig, bestossen u. beschabt; unteres Kapital mit Ausriss; Schließbänder fehlen; Vorsatz mit Dublettenstempel; Titel mit kl. Bibl.-Stempel; Blatt 8 mit kl. Papierläsur u. Buchstabenverlust; eine min. Randbeschädigung; wenige Spuren von Wurmfraß (ohne Textberührung); wenige Seitenränder mit schwachen Feuchtigkeitsrändern, sonst ein erstaunlich frischer u. guter Buchblock. Trotz der versch.

It showed a great progress in experimental method. [Alhazen's book contains] research in catoptrics, [a] study of atmospheric refraction, [a] better description of the eye, and better understanding of vision [as well as an] attempt to explain binocular vision [and the] earliest use of the camera obscura" (Sarton). "This combined edition served as the standard reference work on optics well into the 17th century, influencing scientists such as Brahe, Kepler, Galileo, and Descartes" (Norman). "The Arab physicist Alhazen preserved for us all that was known by the ancients in the field of optics and added some contributions of his own. His book remained a standard authority thru the 1600s. He understood that light emanated spherically from a point and greatly improved on Ptolemy's uncertain rule for refraction which, he showed, held true only for small angles. He covered many cases of reflection and refraction and his explanation of the structure and function of the eye was followed for 600 years" (Dibner). "Ibn al-Haytham's Book of Optics is now a thousand years old. It revolutionized optics and had great impact on science in Europe, being cited by Roger Bacon and Johannes Kepler, among others" (AR, p. 99). "It is remarkable that in the Islamic world the 'Optics' practically disappeared from view soon after its appearance in the 11th century until, in the beginning of the 14th century, the Persian scholar Kamal al-Din composed his great critical commentary on it [.] By this time the 'Optics' had embarked on a new career in the West where it was already widely and avidly studied in a Latin translation of the late 12th or early 13th century, entitled 'Perspectiva' or 'De aspectibus' [.] The Latin translation was published by Frederick Risner at Basel in 1572 in a volume entitled 'Opticae thesaurus', which included Witelo's 'Perspectiva' [.] Risner's Latin edition made [the 'Optics'] available to such mathematicians as Kepler, Snell, Beeckman, Fermat, Harriot, and Descartes, all of whom except the last directly referred to Alhazen", though Descartes "employed [the work] in his successful deduction of the sine law" (DSB, p. 194-197). The 'Liber de crepusculis', the work on dawn and twilight included in Risner's 'Opticae thesaurus' and attributed to Alhazen, is actually the work of his contemporary Abu 'Abdallah Muhammad ibn Mu'adh al-Jayyani (cf. Norman; DSB, p. 208). The optical study by the Polish scholar Witelo, likewise here included, is "a massive work that relies extensively on Alhazen [and] offers an analysis of reflection that was not surpassed until the 17th century" (Norman). - Variously browned due to paper, but altogether quite a crisp, wide-margined copy, with an apparently contemporary handwritten ownership to the title page (deleted some time in the 17th or 18th century), a very few inconspicuous repairs to the edges, a faint waterstain to the lower margin and some slight worming to the lower gutter.

        Zwen [i.e., zwey] tractatus des Hocherfarnen vnd bewärtisten Teutschen Philosophi vnd beyder Artzney Doctoris Philippi Theophrasti Paracelsi. I. De viribus membrorum spiritualium. II. De Electro. Mit Erklärung ettlicher Wörter und praeparationum.

      [colophon: Getruckt zu Straszburg: durch Bernhard Jobin], 1572. Small 8vo (16.5 cm; 7'). [7], 23, [2] ff., port. Michael Toxites (1515?81) here presents his edited text of and preface to this posthumous publication of two treatises by Paracelsus (i.e., Philippus Aureolus Theophrastus Bombastus von Hohenheimm, 1493?1541). Ernst Weil in his Catalogue 22 wrote of this work: "The first part is pharmaceutical, the second on the metal electron" ? this metal being the gold-silver amalgam once upon a time allocated to Jupiter in the alchemists' system, but later deleted entirely. It was thought to be able to "give the qualities of precious metals to the baser ones," like the true philosopher's stone (Thompson, p. 42; Pagel, p. 87).    The text is in German in Fraktur type. A fine => woodcut portrait of Paracelsus at the age of 47 is on the verso of the last leaf of the preface, opposite the first page of text; some minute inked notes have been made in its margins and => an alchemical symbol that we have not identified is inked in its righthand margin in an oval.    Toxites (born Johann Michael Schütz) was poet laureate of Holy Roman Emperor under Charles V, himself an alchemist, and, like Paracelsus, a doctor.    Evidence of readership: The recto of the front free endpaper is filled with => quotations from the Bible that the reader feels bear on the text of the first tract; the verso of same bears an extensive quotation from Toxites' foreword to Paraceleus' Astronomia magna. At least one reader has written commentary in the margins of both texts and even written miniscule inter-liner corrections, observations, or explanations of words. Some marginalia is merely "indexing" so as to be able to re-find a text section by keyword in the margin; other marginalia tie concepts in the texts to other published texts. In the blank area below the colophon and continuing on the blank verso of that same leaf is an extensive quotation from Georg Forberger followed by more quotations from the Bible that are apposite to Paracelsus' text.    Searches of NUC and WorldCat locate only four copies in U.S. libraries and searches via COPAC, VD16, and KVK find precious few in Britain or Europe.         Sudhoff 141; Ritter, p. 1144; Wellcome 4788; Durling 3494; VD16 P611. Not found in Gerguson or Duveen. On "electron," see: C.J.S. Thompson, The Lure and Romance of Alchemy (London: Harrap, 1932), p. 42; and cited in Walter Pagel, Paracelsus: An Introduction to Philosophical Medicine in the Era of the Renaissance (Basel: Karger, 1982), fn. 230, p. 87. 19th-century tan half pigskin and marbled boards, with remnants of an old paper label. Front free endpaper and title-leaf loosening, moderately browned, good margins; overall a rather nice copy of a => remarkably scarce work of pharmaceutical and alchemical science.

        Die neuwen inseln so hinder Hispanien gegen Orient bey dem Land Indie ligen

      Basel: Heinrich Petri, 1572. unbound. Map. Uncolored woodcut. Sheet measures 12" x 15.25". This important and influential 1572 map by Sebastian Munster is the first map to show North America and South America in their true continental forms. It is also significant in that it names the Pacific Ocean (Mare Pacificum) and the first printed map to ever show Japan (Zipangri), here appearing based on the accounts of Marco Polo. First published in 1544 in his Basel edition of Ptolemy's "Geographia", this map made several appearances in about 40 subsequent editions in 6 different languages. This particular map is the 13th state and appeared in the 1572 German edition of Munster's "Cosmographia". The map established some notable cartographic conventions of the time.<br><br>Most notable is the oddly shaped North America without the California landmass. Florida, clearly identifiable, is connected by a narrow isthmus to "Francisca" further north east. Presumably so named after Francis I who sponsored Verrazano's expedition. This reflects the belief at the time of the Sea of Verrazano, a possible route to the West Indies. Yucatan appears as an island and Temistian empties into the Caribbean.<br><br>A more recognizable South America depicts a bulging northwest and notes the region supposedly inhabited by Cannibals in modern day Brazil, with a vignette depicting human body parts. The map includes a very early appearance of the Straits of Magellan. Magellan's ship 'Victoria' also appears in the Pacific. A Spanish flag is seen flying on Puerto Rico while a Portuguese Flag appears in the South Atlantic, depicting their respective influence in the New World. Munster's inclusion of this map in his popular 1544 edition of "Cosmpgraphia" is also believed to have sealed the fate of "America" as the name for the New World.<br><br>The map is in good condition with minor foxing at places. Minor wear along original centerfold and verso repair near top center margin.<br><br>Claudius Ptolemy (90-168 CE) was a Roman geographer and mathematician living in Egypt, who compiled his knowledge and theories about the world's geography into one seminal work. Although his maps did not survive, his mathematical projections and location coordinates did. During the Renaissance revival of Greek and Roman works, "Geographia" was rediscovered by monks and based upon Ptolemy's detailed instructions, the maps were recreated. The first printed edition of "Geographia" with maps was published in Bologna in 1477.<br><br>Professor Sebastian Munster (1488-1552) was a German cosmographer, humanist, theologian and scholar. His seminal work "Cosmographia" was published in numerous languages and is considered the most popular book of the 16th century. Furthermore, Munster is also credited with contributing to a revival of geography in Germany. This example is an exceptional example of this influential map.

He then describes in detail all vexations and nuisance caused by devils, spirits and sorcerers, also explaining how a "ghost" can move objects in the physical world and giving tips on warding off demons. The second part is devoted to one demon in particular, the so-called "tormentor" of Mâcon, who caused trouble to the household of the author and to all inhabitants of the town of Mâcon.With manuscript notes on pastedown and the title-page. Slightly browned and foxed, and lacking opening flyleaf, otherwise a good copy.

        RARE PROOF - SPAIN Ð CEUTA. SEPTA.

      - This fine woodcut view of Ceuta is a seemingly unrecorded proof for Georg Braun & Frans HogenbergÕs famous copper engraved view of the city, printed within the first volume of their pioneering town book Civitates Orbis Terrarum (Cologne, 1572). The attractive birdÕs eye view shows Ceuta as it appeared during the mid-16th Century, when the it was a Portuguese enclave, located near the northern tip of Morocco, just on the Mediterranean side of the Strait of Gibraltar. The heavily fortified city, surrounded by thick, high stone walls, is shown to occupy a small peninsula, protecting a fine natural harbour. Numerous ships, such a Portuguese carrack, Arab dhows and a galley ply the seas. A few locations are labelled such as ÔSt. CatarinaÕ (Isla de Santa Catalina), ÔS. JacobiÕ (Santiago Church) and ÔCastrumÕ (the military / defensive reserve). The finely made woodcut is strongly debossed onto the paper, forming a wonderful tactile effect on the blank verso. While the circumstances of the production of the present view are not fully established, strong evidence suggests that it is a proof prepared for George Braun & Frans HogenbergÕs famous copper engraved view of Ceuta. The woodcut is precisely the same size and features exactly the same content as the Braun & Hogenberg copper engraved issue, which was printed on a sheet with five other views entitled: Tingis Lusitanis Tangiara [on sheet with] Tzaffin [and] Septa [and] Arzilla [and] Sala (being views of the cities of Tangiers, Safi, Ceuta, Arzilla and Sale). The copper engraved view was printed within volume I of Braun & HogenbergÕs Civitates Orbis Terrarum (Cologne 1572), which was published in 6 volumes, issued between 1572 and 1617. The Civitates was revolutionary, being the first comprehensive book of realistic town views, depicting cites from five continents. An example of this view from the collections of the Jewish National & University Library (Jerusalem). The present woodcut proof is identical in style to a woodcut entitled Canonor (depicting Kannur, India) that was sold in 1985 by the famed book dealer H.P. Kraus. Kraus believed that his woodcut of Kannur was likely a proof for the Braun & HogenbergÕs view of that city, likewise published within volume I of the Civitates. KrausÕs attribution is quite convincing, and the woodcut of Kannur, like the present view of Ceuta, is likely based on a series of manuscript sketches given to Frans Hogenberg around 1570 by the Hanseatic merchant Constantin van Lyskirchen (d. 1581). CeutaÕs history goes back to ancient times; however, its modern story begins when the Portuguese conquered the city from the Sultan of Fez, following the Battle of Ceuta in 1415. During the Iberian Union (1580 to 1640), under which the crowns of Portugal and Spain were united under the rule of the King of Spain, large numbers of Spaniards moved to the enclave. When the Union acrimoniously broke up in 1640, the large Spanish population ensured that Ceuta was the only part of the Portuguese Empire that chose to remain under Spanish rule. Portugal formally recognized SpainÕs control of Ceuta by the Treaty of Lisbon of 1668. The present view of Ceuta appears to be unrecorded and is a lovely gem of early urban topographical art.

        Cinq livres de chirurgie. 1. Des bandages. 2. Des fractures. 3. Des luxations, avec une Apologie touchant les harquebousades. 4. Des morsures & piqueures venimeuses. 5. Des gouttes. [Bound with:] Traicté de la peste, de la petite Verolle & Rougeolle: avec une brefue description de la Lepre.

      Paris: André Wechel, 1572; 1568. Very rare first editions of two of Paré's most important works. The Cinq livres de chirurgie is exceedingly scarce in first edition, and perhaps the most important work by Pare. Since 1916 ABPC has recorded the sale of only 2 copies: one in 1963 in New York, and another (incomplete, bound with Paré's Dix livres de chirurgie, also incomplete) in 1981 in London. Paré is considered one of the fathers of surgery and modern forensic pathology and a pioneer in surgical techniques and battlefield medicine, especially in the treatment of wounds. He was also an anatomist and invented several surgical instruments. The first work (Cinq livres de chirurgie) is illustrated with a woodcut portrait of Paré and 41 woodcuts depicting surgical operations and instruments. "The Cinq livres contains all new material. It had been called by several serious writers Paré's chef d'oeuvre ... in it appears the first description of the fracture of the head and of the femur. Secondly, it is the first appearance of the whole teaching of bandages, fractures, and dislocations which has come down to us from the ancients, broadened by Paré's own experience ... It is undoubtedly one of his most important works" (Doe 19). The second work (Traicté de la peste, de la petite Verolle & Rougeolle: avec une brefue description de la Lepre) was written from direct experience of the plague: "Having passed the winter of 1564-65 on tour in Provence with Catherine de' Medici and the young king Charles IX, where the ravages of a plague epidemic, added to poverty and general misery, were painfully apparent, Paré was requested by the queen mother to make whatever knowledge he possessed of the disease available to the world. He therefore puts into a book his ideas as to its cause, transmission, and treatment, and says he writes only of what he has seen by long experience during his three years at the Hôtel-Dieu, his travels, his practice in Paris, and his own slight attack while he was serving his internship. This is one of Paré's most systematic treatises; for its careful symptomatology and thorough description of treatment, it deserves to rank among the best of his writings" (Doe 14). Durling 3526. "Pare was born at Laval near Mayenne. His education was meagre and he never learned Latin or Greek. A rustic barber surgeon's apprentice when he came up from the provinces to Paris and afterwards a dresser at the Hotel Dieu, the public hospital in Paris, he in 1537 became an army surgeon. France was at this time engaged in many wars: against Italy, Germany and England, and eventually at home, in the civil war so disastrous to the Huguenots. Pare joined the Forces and for the next thirty years, with a foothold in Paris in the intervals of fighting, he engaged in any campaign where he soon made himself the greatest surgeon of his time by his courage, ability, and common sense. Like Vesalius and Paracelsus he did not hesitate to thrust aside ignorance or superstition if it stood in his way. Although snubbed by the physicians and the Medical Faculty at the University and ridiculed as an upstart because he wrote in his native tongue instead of in Latin, his reputation gradually grew and he became surgeon successively to Henry II, Francis II, Charles IX and Henry Ill. It is said that Charles IX protected Pare during the Massacre of St. Bartholomew by hiding him in his bedchamber. "Pare is responsible for the abolition of the method of applying hot iron or boiling oil in the treatment of gunshot wounds, the new feature of Renaissance surgery. During a battle in which the supply of oil gave out, Pare was forced to treat many with a mixture of egg-yolk, oil of roses, and turpentine. He was surprised to find the next morning that those treated with his mixture was in much better condition than the others, and he at once championed the new method. Control of hemorrhage by ligation of arteries had been frequently recommended but it was Pare who first practiced it systematically and brought it into general use. He invented many new surgical instruments, devised new methods in dentistry for extracting teeth, filling cavities, and making artificial dentures. He describes an artificial hand from iron, and also artificial noses and eyes of gold and silver... Pare's original books, all very rare today, were handly volumes, small enough for the field surgeoon's knapsack." (Hagelin, Rare and Important Medical Books, pp 34-35).2 works in one volume, 8vo (170 x 109 mm). Contemporary vellum, yapp edges (some soiling, remains of ties).Title within woodcut allegorical border, woodcut portrait of Paré on verso, 41 woodcuts in text, most full-page, complete with colophon leaf with woodcut printer's device on verso.

      1572. Splendida veduta prospettica, a volo d'uccello, della città di Venezia. La pianta è basata su quella di Forlani, mentre la vignetta con la processione del Dohe deriva da Matteo Pagano (1559). Dal primo volume (1572) del Civitates Orbis Terrarum, il primo atlante devoto esclusivamente alle piante e vedute delle principali città del mondo. Stampato in sei volumi tra il 1572 ed il 1617 ebbe grande fortuna e diffusione, tanto che ne furono stampate diverse edizioni tradotte in latino, tedesco e francese; gli intagli dei rami sono attribuiti a Franz Hogenberg e Simon van de Noevel. Incisione su rame, finemente acquarellata, alcune pieghe di carta e restauri integrativi nei margini bianchi superiori, nel complesso in ottimo stato di conservazione. "Bird's-eye view of Venice with an Italian key to locations. Based on the map of Forlani. The vignette with part of the Doge's procession is taken from M. Pagano (1559). From the first volume of the Civitates Orbis Terrarum, published in Cologne in 1572. The first atlas entirely dedicated to city plans and views of the main cities of the world. Printed in six volumes between 1572 and 1617, it has been translated in Latin, German and French. This great city atlas, edited by Georg Braun and largely engraved by Franz Hogenberg, eventually contained 546 prospects, bird-eye views and map views of cities from all over the world. Braun (1541- 1622), a cleric of Cologne, was the principal editor of the work, and was greatly assisted in his project by the close, and continued interest of Abraham Ortelius, whose Theatrum Orbis Terrarum of 1570 was, as a systematic and comprehensive collection of maps of uniform style, the first true atlas. COMMENTARY BY BRAUN: ""Venice is divided into six districts; near the shore one can see two huge columns, on one of which stands the symbol of St Mark, namely the winged lion, on the other St Theodore. Between these columns is the place where criminals are punished. The market square is embellished by the magnificent and wonderful church of St Mark, which was built of precious and costly marble. [...] The streets of the city are intersected by canals, which are spanned by wooden and stone bridges, of which some 400 can be counted. There are, however, over 8,000 small boats in which one can travel to and fro."" Copper engraving, finely hand colours, some paper's folds, restorations in the upper white margins, otherwise in very good condition." Colonia Cologne Van der Krogt 4, 4607; Moretto, 26; Taschen, Braun and Hogenberg, p.112. 485 335
