TARTAGLIA, Niccolò.
London: [by Thomas Dawson] for John Harrison [the elder], 1588. First edition. First edition in English, very rare, of the first three books of Tartaglia's 1546 Quesiti et Inventioni Diverse, dealing with ballistics and expanding and correcting the treatment in his 1537 Nova Scientia, the first systematic treatise on the subject. The appendix of the translator Cyprian Lucar is compiled from writings on gunnery by contemporary authors. "Tartaglia proved both mathematically and experimentally that the trajectory of a missile fired from a cannon was a curved line throughout, thus contradicting the 'impetus' theory derived from Aristotle's Physics, which stated that a projectile's trajectory was described by two straight lines united by a curved line (Tartaglia was the first Renaissance scientist to point out serious flaws in the Physics). Tartaglia demonstrated that from the beginning of its flight, a projectile was affected by gravity, which, along with wind resistance, caused its forward velocity to lessen while increasing the speed of its fall. Tartaglia also observed a relationship between the speed of projection and the speed of fall: the greater the initial speed, the less the gravitational influence. Through experimentation, he determined that the maximum cannon range, at any given initial speed, was obtained with a firing elevation of forty-five degrees" (Norman Catalogue 2053). In fact, in the Nova Scientia Tartaglia argued that the path of a projectile consisted of rectilinear parts at the beginning and end of the trajectory, with a curved part between; it was only i … [Click Below for Full Description]

Belon, P.
- Paris, H. de Marnef & G. Cavellat, 1588. 4to (22.1 x 15.4 cm). [xiv], 468, 1l. 18th century full tree calf. Spine with five raised bands, compartments rich gilt with floral patterns. Red morocco label with gilt title. Marbled endpapers. All edges red.= The final, richly illustrated edition of this influential work on the history, geography, and natural history of the Near and Middle East by the French naturalist and explorer Pierre Belon du Mans (born 1517 - murdered in Paris, 1564). Belon travelled through these regions between 1546 and 1550 and made numerous observations on the plants and their use, on animals (including a great deal on herpetology), people (with their various costumes) and towns. The work includes a map/view of Alexandria, and of the Sea of Marmara. The two fold-outs are missing, as usual. Belon's reports are generally correct and not rooted in fantasy and hearsay as is often the case with his contemporaries, the sole exception being the illustration of a small dragon-like creature. Other woodcuts show trees, birds, mammals, snakes, a crocodile, a giraffe, a lobster, etc. Two illustrations cut short in the margin with minor loss. A fine copy in an attractive binding.

[Sixtus V, Pope (1521-1590)].
1588. Large 4to (274 x 210 mm). 6 pp. on 4 leaves (final leaf blank), sewn. Latin chancery manuscript, ink on paper. Variously revised draft for a Papal decree, asking the cardinals and others to raise monies for the Church to fight the Turks as well as other heretics: "Sixtus V, in order to better govern the Church and safely protect it from all dangers, judges that the Church needs a larger amount of money. The first year the pontificate had 100,000 gold coins, as did the second, to make 1,000,000 gold coins to be guarded in the safe of the Castel Sant'Angelo. In order that they be safely guarded, two constitutions have been issued and an enormous fleet is to be prepared, as the Tyrant of the Turks as well as heretics and schismatics are a threat to the bark of Saint Peter, and large numbers of people are eager in both France and Germany to defend against the enemy. Sixtus V orders his dear brothers, the Cardinals of the Catholic Church, to bring the Holy See another 1,000,000 golden coins, and advises them how to collect the money and the divisions to be made among them for doing so, how often to pay, etc. [...]". As comparison with the final version shows, the present text underwent further editing, and not all changes here drafted made it into the final text. - Occasional slight browning and ink-bleeding, but very well preserved altogether.

In 1612 he married Elisabeth de Hondt, the daughter of Jodocus Hondius. He produced his first maps in 1616 of France and Italy. In 1623 Janssonius owned a bookstore in Frankfurt am Main, later also in Danzig, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Berlin, Kšnigsberg, Geneva and Lyon. In the 1630s he formed a partnership with his brother in law Henricus Hondius, and together they published atlases as Mercator/Hondius/Janssonius.Under the leadership of Janssonius the Hondius Atlas was steadily enlarged. Renamed Atlas Novus, it had three volumes in 1638, one fully dedicated to Italy. 1646 a fourth volume came out with English County Maps, a year after a similar issue by Willem Blaeu. Janssonius' maps are similar to those of Blaeu, and he is often accused of copying from his rival, but many of his maps predate those of Blaeu and/or covered different regions. By 1660, at which point the atlas bore the appropriate name Atlas Major, there were 11 volumes, containing the work of about a hundred credited authors and engravers. It included a description of most of the cities of the world (Townatlas), of the waterworld (Atlas Mar … [Click Below for Full Description]

Aretino, Pietro.
1588. Small 8vo. 4 parts in one volume. VIII, 285, (3) ff. With medallion portrait (legend: "D. Petrus Aretinus Flagellum Principum") on title (repeated three times). 19th c. calf (slightly worn). Pirated edition of Aretino's "comedie" (the first appeared 1553 in Venice) printed by one of the most rebellious and outspoken of all the Elizabethan printers. Wolfe's production was in all probability chiefly destined for the European continent, as all of Aretino's works had been on the Roman Index since 1558; copies were offered for sale at the Frankfurt Book Fair of 1589. Aretino's comedies are considered the best of his works. They rank among the great works of Renaissance drama, and many of their leading characters were prototypes for later playwrights. 'La Talanta', for example, prepared the way for Shakespeare's character Falstaff. "[U]n frontespizo particolare ad ogni comedia [...] ha al fine una Lettera dell'Aretino a Daniele Barbaro" (Gamba). - One gathering misbound, but a nice complete copy. Edit 16, CNCE 2486.

MAFFEI, Giovanni Pietro.
Borba de Moraes, pp. 508-509; Cordier, Japonica, col. 66; Cordier, Sinica, col. 784. A French translation of Maffei's celebrated Historiarum Indicarum, first published, in Latin in 1588. Divided into 16 books, it describes the Portuguese discoveries and missionary work in India, the East Indies, Persia, Japan, China, Brazil and other parts of America. "Maffei writes extensively about Brazil, describing it very accurately" (Borba de Moraes), in fact devoting three chapters to the subject. Book six is devoted to China and includes a description of tea, to which Maffei ascribed several health benefits, regular consumption resulting in a "long and healthy life" ("Elles les ... fait vivre longues années, presque sans aucune langueur", p. 230). The translation is by Abbé Michel de Pure (1634-1680). Slightly browned, first paste-down removed, otherwise in good condition.

Recueil publié une première fois en 1585 de contes et dialogues composés dans une veine rabelaisienne par l'avocat et poète protestant Jean Dagoneau, seigneur de Cholières, qui, après avoir apostasié au profit du catholicisme, tourna résolument le dos à son art pour se consacrer à une production mystique et moralisatrice. Chapitres : 1. du veiller & du dormir, s'il faut dormir l'apres-disnee 2. du mariage 3. de la puissance maritale, à sçavoir si le mary peut battre et chastier sa femme 4. de l'arbre de vie 5. du caquet des femmes 6. des barbes 7. des vieillards & des jeunes enfans, s'ils peuvent engendrer 8. des prognostics & des predictions astrologiques 9. des lunatiques. « Dans les Apres-disnees, loin de se fatiguer, l'invention railleuse et l'érudition un peu hasardée de l'ingénieux écrivain se raniment de plus belle ; le choix des sujets qui l'occupent devient de plus en plus piquant, et sa verve gauloise, son ejouement intarissable, mêlés au bon sens le plus expérimenté, prêtent un charme bien vif aux entretiens où il met aux prises des interlocuteurs habilement choisis. La naïveté de la langue du XVIe siècle, les privilèges de franchise que personne ne lui contestait alors, ajoutent singulièrement à l'attrait qu'offrent ces controverses où se reflète fidèlement la pensée du temps. … [Click Below for Full Description]
