Con otros tres breves tratados de la Excellencia de las principales obras penitenciales: que son Lymosna, Ayuno y Oración. Y agora de nuevo emendado y corregido por el mismo Padre.

      En Barcelona, por Francisco Trincher, 1588. - in-folio. 6ff. 295pp. 2ff. Demi-vélin moderne genre ancien. Rare édition barcelonaise de l'un des principaux ouvrages ascétiques de Luis de Granada (1505-1588), souvent considéré comme son chef d'œuvre. Le livre fut mis à l'Index en 1559, peu après sa parution en 1554 à Salamanque, et il valut à son auteur de sérieux démêlés avec l'Inquisition dirigée par Melchor Cano. "Los teólogos contemporáneos de la Reforma miraban con ojeriza los libros de devoción en lengua vulgar inclusos los de Fr. Luis de Granada, y ésta fué la causa de la prohibición de la Guia de Pecadores y la Oración y Meditación" (Menendez y Pelayo, cité par Palau). Belle marque d'imprimeur sur la page de titre et sur le dernier feuillet. Traces de mouillure angulaire. Palau, II, 399, qui en possédait un exemplaire (avec un autre nom de libraire et sans le feuillet portant la marque d'imprimeur à la fin).

        Wesalia in Ducatu Clivensi Urbs Clara Opibus [Wesel]

      Cologne, c. 1588. Map. Copper engraving, 34.5 x 48 cms, recent hand-colour, Latin text on verso. The Civitates Orbis Terrarum - Cities of the whole World - was one of the best-selling works of the late sixteenth-century. It was a monumental work completed over 45 years between 1572 and 1617. It was the first systematic city atlas (containing the first printed views of many towns). Braun wrote the text and Ortelius - who travelled with the artist Joris Hoefnagel - supplied much of the material, which was then engraved by Novellus and Hogenburg. There were a number of editions, mostly with Latin text, but it is extremely difficult (and as Koeman says ‘of secondary importance’) to differentiate between them, as the state of the plates and their number and order does not vary.

        In duos Archimedis Aequeponderantium Libros Paraphrasis Scholiis illustrata

      Pesaro: Hieronymus Concordia, 1588. Hardcover. Very Good. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. 4to.,[29.7 x 19.7 cm], (2) ff., 202 pp., (1) f. Bound in 18th C mottled calf, some rubbing, with title gilt on spine. Ex libris of Alexander Henry Davis on front pastedown. Title soiled, cancel on p. 9, corner of 1 leaf torn, trace of former library stamp on f.R2, pp.155-58 misbound. Light toning on scattered leaves, but overall a bright copy, very good. First edition of an Archimedean work by Galileo's friend and early patron Guidobaldo del Monte. Guidobaldo's Liber mechanicorum (1577), regarded as the greatest work on statics since the Greeks, employed the mathematically rigorous proofs of Archimedean models in investigating static and mechanical questions; the present work develops many of those ideas in a paraphrase of Archimedes' "On the Equilibrium of Planes," which applied geometry to hydrostatics and proved the law of the lever using pure geometry. These works had a profound and lasting impact on the methodology adopted by 16th C Italian scientists, most notably Galileo: "Guidobaldo was Galileo's patron and friend and was possibly the greatest single influence on the mechanics of Galileo" (DSB). In addition to his patronage, Guidobaldo also supported Galileo's bid for Chair of Mathematics at the University of Padua in 1592. Galileo himself, who was sent a copy of the present work, adopted Guidobaldo's analysis of the lever.Guidobaldo del Monte (1545-1607, born to a wealthy family from Urbino, was a soldier, military engineer, astronomer and mathematician. In addition to writing works of applied geometry and physics, he also wrote on perspective, and he developed mathematical instruments including the proportional and elliptical compass. * Riccardi II.179; DSB IX.487-489; Bibliotheca Chemico-Mathematica, 12033.

        Mathematicae Collectiones

      Ed. by Federico Commandino. Numerous woodcut illus. & diagrams in the text. 4 p.l. (the last a blank), 334 (i.e., 332) pp. Folio, cont. limp vellum (title a bit soiled, last two leaves with some light dampstaining), ties gone. Pesaro: H. Concordia, 1588. First edition and a very fine and fresh copy of this uncommon book; this edition, providing the complete extant text, was the final work to be edited by Commandino and completes his life's work of reviving Renaissance mathematics by making available the best mathematical writings of antiquity. "In the silver age of Greek mathematics Pappus stands out as an accomplished and versatile geometer. His treatise known as the Synagoge or Collection is a chief, and sometimes the only, source for our knowledge of his predecessors' achievements. The Collection is in eight books, perhaps originally in twelve, of which the first and part of the second are missing... "Book VII is the most fascinating in the whole Collection, not merely by its intrinsic interest and by what it preserves of earlier writers but by its influence on modern mathematics."­D.S.B., X, p. 293-95­(and see pp. 294-98 for a full discussion of the contents). This concerns, in a passage on Apollonius' Conics, the attempt to conceive of the product of more than three straight lines as geometrical entities, known as "Pappus' Problem." Descartes devoted a major part of his own Géométrie to this, and solved it by the use of algebraic notation. "Pappus' problem thus inspired the new method of analytical geometry that has proved such a powerful tool in subsequent centuries. In his Principia (1687) Newton also found inspiration in Pappus; he proved in a purely geometrical manner that the locus with respect to four lines is a conic section, which may degenerate into a circle."­D.S.B., X, p. 296. Topics discussed in the other books include astronomy and mechanics. A very fine copy preserved in a green morocco-backed box. Rose, The Italian Renaissance of Mathematics, p. 214­"Within 25 years of Commandino's death the first step in founding the mechanics of the seventeenth century was to be taken by Galileo when, in criticising the inclined plane theorem of Pappus, the Tuscan mathematician adumbrated the notion of inertia. This step was not taken in an intellectual vacuum, but represents the culmination of the mathematical renaissance that had been achieved by the Restauratores."­(& see the whole of Chap. 9 for Commandino and this book).

        Nova Anglia Novum Belgium et Virginia

      Johannes Janssonius (1588-1664)Nova Anglia Novum Belgium et VirginiaAmsterdam, 1636-1638Hand-colored copperplate engravingSheet size: 19" x 22"Framed size: 24" x 28"Nova Anglia Novum Belgium et Virginia is an exquisite representation of Johannes Jansson?s elegant cartography from the middle of the 17th century. Jansson?s work marks the height of Dutch power in the newly discovered continent of America. A large heart shaped cartouche marks the middle left corner, and in the lower right hand corner is an inset establishing scale and noting Jansson as the map?s executor. While the sparseness of this map accurately represents the mostly unexplored interior of North America, what is represented shows how far mapping and settlement had come since the 14th century.In 1524 Italian explorer Verrazano was the first to verify that the East Coast was a continuous shoreline. It was not until almost 100 years later that the drive for exploration turned into the need for settlement, and the East Coast began being mapped in extensive detail. Explorers were also driven by their governmental benefactors? quest for power through land ownership and trade. In 1609, the Dutch sent the first settlers via Henry Hudson to the New World. Granted a monopoly on land and its resulting commerce, the Dutch West India Company established the Dutch Colony of New Netherland (Nieuw-Nederland in Dutch) in 1623.A cartographer and director of the West India Company Johannes de Laet created a similarly titled map published in Leiden in 1630. It was from this source that Jansson borrowed material for his own map. Borrowing was not an unusual practice in early cartography as information was easily passed, copied, restructured from one source to the next; allowing cartographers to create almost identical maps with small amounts of variation. Laet himself used Adriaen Black, an early correspondent for the West India Company, as the source for his cartography. The extent of ?borrowing? such materials meant even Black?s work was not original and was borrowed from John Smith?s earlier works. Such transmissions are important in marking the chronology of a region?s cartography by providing different glimpses of that area over long periods of time. Laet and Jansson were the first to include Manhattan as an island, and Laet is the first to name a Great Lake, marked as Grand Lac, on his map; a transmission that Jansson?s map also notes. Lake Champlain in Vermont is incorrectly placed partially through the cartographer?s ignorance, and its misplacement, is from the incorrect transmission of information from Samuel Champlain.  Laet included an inset of Bermuda, which Jansson does not. Regardless of such transmissions, Jansson?s map is beautifully outlined in vibrant shades of green, orange, pink and yellow. Jansson includes the Hudson, Delaware and  Connecticut Rivers, which were vital to trade and commerce. The top part of the map shows New France (Nova Francia). While Jansson keeps his unknown interior sparse, it creates a beautiful sense of elegance with the famous cities on the coast. Jamestown and Plymouth are both marked as is the New Netherlands, Manhattan (appropriately established as an island) and Fort Orange, an early Dutch settlement that would later become Albany are all clearly marked. Cape Cod is beautifully proportioned although a glaring omission of not noting Boston, which was successfully established as thriving port in 1632.Rhumb lines stretch from a compass rose in the upper right and the Mar del Nort has two ships and two sea creatures added as decoration. There is Jansson?s respectful inclusion of numerous Native American place names including Norembegau; a very early Native American settlement known for its wealth. Adding such place names adds a sense of connection as well as romantic associations to the ideas of antiquity. Jansson would later create a far more in depth view of New England in later versions of this map but this early piece gracefully captures the mystery of America. There is a sense of excitement from what lays beyond his sparse borders. Jansson had thoughtfully included text on this map on its verso. This piece is framed to expose that text. Jansson become one of the most celebrated Dutch cartographers of his day, along with his contemporary Blaeu. Jansson married into the Hondius family, adding his talent to an already highly regarded cartographic family.  He worked on publishing several atlases on his own and with Henry Hondius. Jansson?s most important work was an Atlas Major. This map is excellent illustration of remarkable cartography and craftsmanship making it a fine addition to any collection. It captures the sense of excitement and possibility of exploration during the seventeenth century.

        Le diverse et artificiose machine …

      Paris: the author,, 1588. nellequali si contengono varij et industriosi movimenti … Composte in lingua Italiana et Francese. Folio (307 × 206 mm). Contemporary French mottled calf, spine gilt in compartments between raised bands, lettered in second compartment, sides ruled in blind. Housed in a burgundy flat back cloth solander box. Text in French and Italian, in roman and italic types respectively. Engraved title within architectural frame, engraved portrait of the author on verso of title, title and portrait by Léonard Gaultier, 194 engravings, of which 174 full-page and 20 double-page (numbered to 195, numbers 148–9 a single double-page plate), three signed with the monogram "JG", text and engravings printed within borders of typographic floral ornaments, 4-line historiated and 2-line floriated initials, woodcut tailpieces and corner ornaments. Early 19th-century armorial bookplate of George Gostling. Some restoration to headcaps and joints, a few chips to board edges, a little occasional pale dampstaining and browning, pale stains on 2F1–2, overall a very good copy. First edition of a fundamental book in the history both of technology and of book design, and "one of the most elegantly produced of all technological treatises" (Norman). The scientific import of Ramelli's work resides in his demonstration of "the unlimited possibilities of machines. For example, the dozens of water-powered pumps and mills shown in his treatise clearly demonstrated that non-muscular power could be substituted for horse- or human-power in any mechanical task requiring continuous or repetitive application of force, and the portrayal of over twenty types of water pump … destroyed the notion that there were necessary limits to the configuration or arrangement of a machine" (op. cit.) About half of the engravings depict hydraulic devices, the rest showing military machines as well as fountains, bridges, cranes, foundry equipment, etc., and a smattering of innovative devices such as the famous "reading wheel" or the bouquet with artificial singing birds. The influence of the illustrations was far-reaching and they were copied in a number of technical books during the next two centuries. In his preface, Ramelli explains that the exceptional care lavished upon the design and printing of his treatise was due as much to his wish to foil a crudely pirated publication of some of his designs (probably in the c.1583 Timon of Ambroise Bachot, future ingénieur du roi), as to his desire to show gratitude to his patron Henri III. The work was reprinted only once, in 1620.

        De natura hominis. Add: De victu; De tuenda valetudine; Medicinae lex; Iusiurandum; Demonstratio quod artes sunt; Invectiva in obtrectatores medicinae

      Rare incunable edition of this collection of Hippocratic texts, some in their first printings, and including one of the first appearances in print of the Hippocratic oath. The corpus of texts ascribed to Hippocrates of Cos , however disputed their authorship may now be, contributed unequivocally to the creation of the first system of empirical medicine based on clinical experience. De natura hominis notably introduces physiopathology in medicine and contains the first formulation of the humoral theory of disease [f. 7v], as devised either by Hippocrates or his son-in-law Polybus, which would underpin medical practice right through to the seventeenth century. This volume, edited by Andrea Brenta, comprises six additional texts, including the dietetic work, De victu, and the famed oath Iusiurandum, the appearance of which in incunable compendia such as this ?secured for it a central place in the European medical consciousness? (Norman, p. 9).One of the most famous documents in the history of medicine, ethics, and education, the Hippocratic oath has long been regarded as expressing the fundamental ethical and moral standards of the medical profession. Although Hippocrates is no longer considered the direct author of the oath, It was probably formulated in the fourth century B.C. and expresses many Hippocratic ideals. First mentioned in the first century A.D. (see Norman, 100 Books, p. 8), it became common practice, by the 1850s, for American medical students to take this oath of conduct at the completion of their studies. The text of the oath (found here on the recto of the penultimate leaf) has remained substantially unchanged since its first printing. (The familiar phrase ?First, do no harm??primum non nocere?is not included in the Hippocratic Oath, deriving instead from Hippocrates? Epidemics. The first English translation appeared in Francisco Arceo?s 1588 Most Excellent and Compendious Method of Curing Wounds in the Head.) Just as the original date and authorship of the oath is obscure, so is its publishing history. The first printing of the Iusiurandum is currently believed to be in Nicolaus Perottus?s De generibus metrorum (Verona, Boninus de Boninis, c. 1475-1483) [Goff P-298; see 2001 Countway Library exhibit of incunables]. A second contender for editio princeps is Petrus Paulus Vergerius?s translation in the second edition of the Articella Hippocratis, published by Hermannus Liechtenstein in Venice on March 29, 1483. (A briefer edition of this popular compilation of Greek and Arabic medical texts in Latin, which did not include the oath, had first appeared in Padua, 1476). Four additional incunable editions of the Articella followed by 1500, but as the second was not until August 20, 1487, it is possible that at least one edition of De natura hominis, containing the oath, intervened. The first three incunable editions of De natura hominis and associated texts, edited by Andrea Brenta, are undated. The present edition [Klebs 519.1] has been unanimously attributed to Eucharius Silber, and ascribed a date between 1483 and 1490. Another undated Roman edition [Klebs 519.3] has been assigned by Goff and IGI to Stephan Plannck, and dated c. 1490; however, CIBN assigns that work to Georgius Herolt and gives it a date of c. 1481, which would make it the editio princeps. A third Brentius edition [Klebs 519.2] was originally also attributed by Reichling to Silber; however, IGI now assigns it to Plannck between 1492-93. Until further typographic analysis has been completed, we follow Goff, Klebs and Hain-Copinger in ascribing priority to this Silber edition, which would place only the Perottus and possibly the March 1483 Articella versions of the Iusiurandum prior to this appearance. ISTC lists the following copies of this edition in North America: College of Physicians of Philadelphia, NLM (2), and NYAM.

      Xilografia, 1588, firmata e datata in lastra in basso a destra. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, con piccoli margini oltre la linea marginale, lieve restauro al margine laterale sinistro, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione.Andrea Andreani fu l?unico artista a realizzare un numero significativo di chiaroscuri nella seconda metà XVI secolo in Italia; ristampò anche dei chiaroscuri intagliati molti anni prima. Realizzò almeno 35 stampe, sia in bianco e e nero, sia a colori, con uno stile sofisticato nell?intaglio, caratterizzato da sottili e ravvicinati contorni colorati. Lavorò a Firenze nel 1584-5, dal 1586 al 1589 a Siena e nel 1590 ritorna nella sua città natale, Mantova, dove stabilì il suo studio. Quest?opera, ritratto del maestro di Norimberga, è relativa al suo breve periodo senese; è possibile che si tratti di un intaglio di scuola tedesca che l?Andreani corregge e stampa, aggiungendo la dedica al pittore Pietro Tranquilli. La tavola è sconosciuta al Bartsch ed alle principali bibliografie. Woodcut, 1588, signed and dated on block on lower right. Excellent work, printed on contemporary laid paper without watermark, with small margins beyond the border line, small repair on left margin, in general in very good condition. Andrea Andreani was the only artist to realize a significant amount of chiaroscuros during the second half of the XVI century in Italy; he also reissued many chiaroscuros realized in the past. He cut at least 35 blocks, both in colour and black&white, with a very sophisticated carving style, characterized by thin and coloured borders. He worked in Florence in 1584-5, and in Siena between 1586 and 1589, to go back to his native town, Mantua, in 1590, where he opened his workshop. This work is the portrait of the Nuremberg master, realized when he was working in Siena. Very likely, the block has been carved by some German artist, then Andreani adjusted and printed it, adding his dedication to the painter Pietro Tranquilli. Bartsch didn?t know this work, neither did the main bibliographers. 260 300

An amazingly popular French version 'L'agriculture et maison rustique' was first published in Paris 1564, translated by his son-in-law, Jean Liébault, it became a Renaissance bestseller with at least 80 editions by the fall of Napoleon. The work was translated into the English, German, Dutch, Italian and Scandinavian languages. It is a veritable encyclopedia of country living, with large sections on orchards and fruit. Charles Estienne belonged to the famous dynasty of Parisian printers, he was however a poor businessman and died imprisoned in 1561 at the Châtelet. "Dieser Übersetzung lag eine der Ausgaben von Charles Estienne et Jean Liébault, 'L'Agriculture et maison rustique' zugrunde, die bereits Jean de Clamorgans 'La chasse du loup' als Anhang hatte und zwischen 1567 und 1578 erschienen ist" (Lindner 563.01). The fine woodcuts are after Tobias Stimmer, J. Amman a.o. probably cut by the printer Bernard Jobin himself. First few leaves with some minor worming at the lower margin. Provenance: Bookplate of Bibliotheca Tiliana and library stamp of Biblioteka Julinska on second leaf. Lindner 563.04; VD 16E 4002.
