        Traité élémentaire de paléontologie ou histoire naturelle des animaux fossiles, considérés dans leurs rapports zoologiques et géologiques.Geneva, Jules-Guillaume Fick, 1844-1846. 4 volumes. 8vo. 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. Ausgaben selten.

        Kitab al-Manazir, latine]. Opticae thesaurus. Alhazeni Arabis libri septem, nunc primum editi. Eiusdem liber de crepusculis & Nubium ascensionibus. Item Vitellonis Thuringopoloni libri X [.]. (Ed. F. Risner).

      Basel, Eusebius Episcopius & heirs of Nicolaus Episcopius, (August) 1572. - Folio (248 x 350 mm). 2 parts in 1 vol. 1st blank f., (6), 288 pp. (8), 474, (2) pp. With 2 different woodcut printer's devices on t. p. and colophon, half-page woodcut on reverse of t. p. (repeated on half-title of pt. 2), and numerous diagrams in the text. Near-contemporary full vellum binding with giltstamped red spine label. All edges sprinkled in red. First edition of "the most important work of its kind in Arabic literature" (cf. Poggendorf). Ibn al-Haytham (965-c. 1040), known as Alhazen in the Latin tradition, has been hailed as "the greatest Muslim physicist and one of the greatest students of optics of all times [.] The Latin translation [.] exerted a great influence upon Western science. 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. Binding tight and well-preserved, with 17th or early 18th century library shelfmarks to front pastedown. An unusually fine specimen of a principal work of Arabic science as received in the West.

        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.

First edition of a curious work on demonology by François Perreaud, or Perrault (1572 or 1577-1657), son of a protestant pastor, and himself a protestant minister in the French Bourgogne and Gex region. The book is divided into two parts. The author starts adressing the readers who don't believe in demons or evil spirits, and proves their existance mostly with Bible-quotations. 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

        De Magnitudinibus, et Distantiis Solis, et Lunae, Liber cum Pappi Alexandrini explicationibus quibusdam. A Federico Commandino Urbinate in Latinum conversus, ac Commentariis illustratus

      1572. Woodcut printer's device on title, a fine woodcut initial, & numerous woodcut diagrams (many full-page) in the text. 4 p.l. (the last a blank), 38 leaves. Small 4to, early vellum over boards (some light foxing), handwritten paper label on spine, traces of green silk ties. Pesaro: C. Francischini, 1572.First edition of Commandino's translation of the first treatise to put forward the heliocentric hypothesis.Aristarchus (ca. 310-230 B.C.), "taught the daily rotation of the earth about its axis. He was the first to put forward the heliocentric hypothesis. In order to reconcile the apparent immobility of the fixed stars with the revolution of the earth around the sun, he assumed that the sphere of the fixed stars was incomparably greater than that containing the earth's orbit. That is, the universe conceived by him was incomparably greater than that conceived by his predecessors. In his only extant treatise 'On the sizes and distances of the sun and moon' he gave a scientific method to make these measurements. His results were grossly inaccurate, but the method was sound…"This treatise is of great mathematical interest because of its containing the calculation of ratios which are in fact trigonometrical ratios."-Sarton, I, pp. 156-57."Aristarchus is celebrated as being the first man to have propounded a heliocentric theory, eighteen centuries before Copernicus…It is interesting to note in passing that Copernicus' disappointment at being anticipated by Aristarchus has recently come to light. Copernicus deliberately suppressed a statement acknowledging his awareness of Aristarchus' theory…On Sizes and Distances marks the first attempt to determine astronomical distances and dimensions by mathematical deductions based upon a set of assumptions."-D.S.B., I, pp. 246-48.Nice unsophisticated copy. Old stamp on title.❧ Sparrow, Milestones of Science, pp. 2-3 & plate 7.

With engraved title-page, 42 engraved plates by Charles de Mallery after Adam van Noort and Adriaan Collaert, 2 engravings in text, and 15 heart-shaped engraved emblems in text by Theodoor Galle. 19th-century gold-tooled brown morocco, gilt edges; bound by Émile Bosquet.

      - Funck 280; Landwehr, Emblem and fable books 63; Praz, p. 275. First and only edition of a beautifully illustrated Roman Catholic emblem book, written by the Spanish Jesuit Pierre de Bivero, Latinized Biverus (1572-1656). The book is divided into three parts, closing with an appendix. The first part is devoted to the emblematic representation of the Holy Virgin, with 16 engraved emblems, several showing Mary surrounded by a huge dove. The second part centers around King David, illustrated with 20 plates, and the third part deals with female saints, including 6 emblematic plates depicting two saints on one plate. The appendix contains 15 heart-shaped devotional emblems, which had been published before in the devotional work Typus praedestinationis, also printed at Antwerp, in 1630. The emblems were designed and engraved by some of the best Antwerp artists. Adriaan Collaert (ca. 1560-1618), a fine Antwerp engraver, was married to the daughter of Philip Galle, whose pupil was Charles de Mallery (ca. 1571-ca. 1631), the engraver of the full-page emblems. Theodoor Galle (1571-1633), who engraved the heart-shaped emblems, was Philip Galle's son and pupil.With the bookplate of Merlin d'Estreux de Beaugrenier on pastedown. Binding slightly rubbed along the extremities. Only very slightly browned with a few small spots. A very good copy in an attractive binding.

        De Magnitudinibus, et Distantiis Solis, et Lunae, Liber cum Pappi Alexandrini explicationibus quibusdam. A Federico Commandino Urbinate in Latinum conversus, ac Commentariis illustratus

      Woodcut printer's device on title, a fine woodcut initial, & numerous woodcut diagrams (many full-page) in the text. 4 p.l. (the last a blank), 38 leaves. Small 4to, early vellum over boards (some light foxing), handwritten paper label on spine, traces of green silk ties. Pesaro: C. Francischini, 1572. First edition of Commandino's translation of the first treatise to put forward the heliocentric hypothesis. Aristarchus (ca. 310-230 B.C.), "taught the daily rotation of the earth about its axis. He was the first to put forward the heliocentric hypothesis. In order to reconcile the apparent immobility of the fixed stars with the revolution of the earth around the sun, he assumed that the sphere of the fixed stars was incomparably greater than that containing the earth's orbit. That is, the universe conceived by him was incomparably greater than that conceived by his predecessors. In his only extant treatise 'On the sizes and distances of the sun and moon' he gave a scientific method to make these measurements. His results were grossly inaccurate, but the method was sound&hellip; "This treatise is of great mathematical interest because of its containing the calculation of ratios which are in fact trigonometrical ratios."-Sarton, I, pp. 156-57. "Aristarchus is celebrated as being the first man to have propounded a heliocentric theory, eighteen centuries before Copernicus&hellip;It is interesting to note in passing that Copernicus' disappointment at being anticipated by Aristarchus has recently come to light. Copernicus deliberately suppressed a statement acknowledging his awareness of Aristarchus' theory&hellip;On Sizes and Distances marks the first attempt to determine astronomical distances and dimensions by mathematical deductions based upon a set of assumptions."-D.S.B., I, pp. 246-48. Nice unsophisticated copy. Old stamp on title. &#10087; Sparrow, Milestones of Science, pp. 2-3 & plate 7.

The book is divided into two parts. The author starts adressing the readers who don't believe in demons or evil spirits, and proves their existance mostly with Bible-quotations. 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.
