        Novae Coelestium Orbium Theoricae congruentes cum observationibus N. Copernici.

      Venice Damiano Zenario 1589. - First edition of New Theories of the Celestial Orbs Agreeing with the Observations of Copernicus, Magini’s principal astronomical treatise. The work is of interest for the 16th-century reception of Copernicus, whom Magini admired; and although he endorsed the unprecedented accuracy of Copernicus’s calculation of celestial movements he nevertheless publicly retained his belief in geocentrism. His private correspondence, however, leaves no doubt that Magini became a "closet" Copernican (see above). Even so, Magini represents a progressive case of 16th-century "establishment" science, and whether explicitly or not, and whether fairly or not, he is the target in much of Galileo’s more revolutionary embrace of the Copernican system. In this work Magini "took the position that Copernicus had so reformed astronomy that no correction of equal motions, or a very slight one, was now required. For although Copernicus had devised hypotheses which wandered far from verisimilitude, yet they corresponded closely to the phenomena. He, therefore, collated the ideas of Ptolemy and Copernicus, adding new hypotheses of his own where they seemed necessary, and has written an introductory text or theory of the planets along these lines. He asserts that there was a great demand for such a theory of the planets which would abandon the outmoded Alfonsine hypotheses and conform his recent observations without such absurd hypotheses as Copernicus had imagined" (Thorndike VI.56).At the time of the present work, Magini (1555-1617) held one of the two chairs of mathematics at Bologna, to which he had been elected over the young Galileo. This undeserved preference naturally aggravated the already advanced rivalry between the two. Magini was a talented calculator, producing the best ephemerides of his day, and was an accomplished geographer and cartographer. * Adams M-119; Riccardi I.2.65.5; Luigi Campedelli in DSB IX.12-13; Gingerich, "Science in the Age of Copernicus," Harvard Library Bulletin XXVI, no. 4 (1978), no. 42; Thorndike VI.56-9.

      1589. Handsome Copy of an Important Sixteenth-Century Law Dictionary Nebrija, Antonio de [c.1444-1522], Compiler. Caccialupi, Giovanni Battista [c. 1420-1496].

Accessit Lexicon Iuris Civilis, In quo Varii & Insignes Errores Accursii Notantur. Nunc Denuo Studio, Ac Diligentia ab Innumeris Erroribus Expurgatum, Multisque Multarum Vocum Significationib. Illustratum. Venice: Apud Haeredes Valerii Bonelli, 1589. 414, [2] ff. Main text in parallel columns. Octavo (5-1/2" x 4"). Recent period-style vellum (using material from an old volume), hand-lettered title to spine. Light rubbing to extremities, a few minor stains to boards, a few cracks to tect block (binding secure). Woodcut printer device to title page, woodcut head-pieces, tail-pieces and decorated initials. Some toning to text, occasional faint dampspotting, light browning and faint dampstaining to some leaves. Early owner signature to title page, interior otherwise clean. A nice copy in an attractive binding. * Later edition. A work of great authority, this popular dictionary was first published in 1559. It went through more than twenty-five editions, with several variations in content, during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. All editions have two principal parts: the fifteenth-century Vocabularius attributed to Jacobus of Erfurt and Nebrija's Lexicon Iuris Civilis. It is a curious hybrid of late-medieval and renaissance scholarship; the former work is a typical scholastic compilation, the latter is a humanistic work grounded in philology and historical commentary. Nebrija was an important Spanish scholar and educator. Educated at the universities of Salamanca and Bologna, he read widely in law, medicine and theology. His philological work, which included the first Spanish grammar and dictionary, led to the standardization of the language. In 1502 he was a member of a group of scholars gathered by Cardinal Ximenes de Cisneros at Alcala to produce the Complutensian Polyglot Bible. This edition also includes Caccialupi's Tractatus de Modo Studendi in Utroque Iure, an introductory textbook for law students. OCLC locates 6 copies of this edition worldwide, 1 in North America (at the Library of Cong

        Il Cancellieri del Doni, libro della memoria. Dove si tratta per paragone della prudenza de gli antichi, con la sapienza de' moderni in tutte le attioni del mondo, & fatti honorati d'arme di dominio, & magistrato. Terminando tutto con le proprie sentenze. Cavate da greci, da latini, et della nostra linua [sic] d'huomini illustri, et sapienti d'ogni stato, grado, et conditione.

      appresso i Gioliti,, in Venetia, 1589 - In-8° (201x146mm), pp. 56, legatura novecentesca in p. pergamena rigida con unghie eseguita a imitazione delle legature antiche. Titolo in oro su tassello in pelle rossa al dorso. Impresa xilografica con la fenice giolitina al frontespizio, numerosi capilettera istoriati xilograficamente. Antica firma di possesso al margine inferiore del frontespizio. Qualche lieve gora e brunitura. Ottimo esemplare, leggermente ridotto di margini. Terza edizione (la prima è del 1562) di quest'opera doniana dedicata alla memoria e alla comparazione di fatti antichi e moderni. Si tratta di una ristampa fedele, o meglio di una nuova emissione dell'edizione del 1562; "gli eredi di Gabriele in alcune copie ristamparono il primo foglio, ponendovi la data del 1585 e del 1589; segno certo che erano rimaste invendute nei magazzini" (Bongi). Nel trattato mnemonico i capilettera istoriati rappresentano un sistema di immagini di scene mitologiche, in cui ogni lettera corrisponde alla prima lettera del personaggio principale inserito nella scena; l'alfabeto è basato su quello già impiegato da Ludovico Dolce nella sua traduzione delle "Metamorfosi" ovidiane ("Le Trasformationi"), pubblicata l'anno prima dallo stesso "Giolito de'Ferrari". "Si tratta infatti di alfabeti che, secondo le parole del poligrafo collaboratore dei Giolito Ludovico Dolce nella sua opera sulla memorizzazione, "hanno parte di voce", a differenza di quelli costituiti invece di figure che hanno una somiglianza di forme con le lettere stesse. Si potrebbe essere tentati a questo punto di affacciare l'ipotesi che ad inventare le iniziali "parlanti" giolitine possa essere stato Lodovico Dolce, che della casa tipografico-editoriale divenne un vero e proprio redattore. Osta però a tale ipotesi il fatto che la collaborazione del Dolce con il Giolito divenne stabile soltanto nel 1543; che la sua fortunata traduzione in italiano delle Metamorfosi, più volte ristampata, uscì, per i torchi di Giolito, soltanto nel 1555; e che la sua non molto originale opera, già citata, sull'arte della memoria apparve addirittura nel 1562. Potremmo dunque lasciare per intero a Gabriele Giolito, la più rilevante ed importante figura di imprenditore editoriale del tempo, la responsabilità, se non di aver pensato, almeno di aver voluto, nel quadro della sua costante ricerca di soluzioni tecniche volte alla conquista ed all'ampliamento del mercato, la creazione e l'adozione delle iniziali "parlanti" (Franca Petrucci Nardelli, La lettera e l'immagine: le iniziali "parlanti" nella tipografia italiana (secc. XVI-XVIII), Firenze, Olschki, 1991, pp. 17 e sgg.). Cfr. Young, Bibliography of Memory, p. 92. Bongi, II, 149. Gamba, 1373. Haym, Libri rari, p. 372. Adams, D-813. STC Italian Books, 225.

(Sabin 118) A reissue of the 1588 edition.José de Acosta (September/October 1539– February 15, 1600), was a Spanish 16th-century Jesuit missionary and naturalist in Latin America. Born at Medina del Campo in Spain, he became a novice in the Society of Jesus at the age of thirteen at the place of his birth. Four of his brothers successively joined the same order. Before leaving Spain, he was lecturer in theology at Ocana, and in April 1569, was sent to Lima, Peru, where the Jesuits had been established in the proceeding year. At Lima, Acosta again occupied the chair of theology; his fame as an orator had preceded him. In 1571 he went to Cuzco as a visitor of the college of the Jesuits then recently founded. Returning to Lima three years later, to again fill the chair of theology, he was elected provincial in 1576. He founded a number of colleges, among them those of Arequipa, Potosí, Chuquisaca, Panama and La Paz, but met with considerable opposition from the viceroy, Francisco de Toledo, Count of Oropesa. His official duties obliged him to investigate personally a very extensive range of territory, so that he acquired a practical knowledge of the vast province, and of its aboriginal inhabitants. At the provincial council of 1582, at Lima, Acosta played a very important part. Called to Spain by the King in 1585, he was detained in Mexico, where he dedicated himself to studies of the country and people; returning to Europe, he filled the chair of theology at the Roman college in 1594, as well as other important positions. At the time of his death, he was rector of the college at Salamanca. Aside from his publication of the proceedings of the provincial councils of 1567 and 1583, and several works of exclusively theological import, Acosta is best known as the writer of De Natura Novi Orbis, De promulgatione Evangelii apud Barbaros, sive De Procuranda Indorum salute and above all, the Historia natural y moral de las Indias. The first two appeared at Salamanca in 1588, the last at Seville in 1590, and was soon after its publication translated into various languages. It is chiefly the Historia natural y moral that has established the reputation of Acosta. In a form more concise than that employed by his predecessors, Francisco Lopez de Gómara and Oviedo, he treated the natural and philosophic history of the New World from a broader point of view. In it, more than a century before Europeans learned of the Bering Strait, Acosta hypothesized that Latin America's indigenous peoples had migrated from Asia to Latin America. He also divided them into three barbarian categories. The Historia also described Inca and Aztec customs and history, as well as other information such as farming practices.Condition:iii - xvi, 639-640 pages skillfully repaired affecting some text, repaired worm hole affecting text throughout, endpapers renewed, Provenance: near contemporary annotation on page iii.

      In Venetia, Appresso Domenico Nicolini, 1589.. dimostra intorno a questa materia quanto habbiano errato in molte cose. Aggiuntaui una piena dichiaratione alla regola gia data dal famoso Astrologo M. Giovanni Bianchini per trovar col mezo dell'hore l'altezza de' Poli; et appresso un discorso fatto sopra il Moto della Trepidatione dell'Ottava Sfera, opera dignissima & curiosa novamente posta in luce. FIRST EDITION 1589, Italian text, small 4to, approximately 220 x 160 mm, 8¾ x 6¼ inches, author's large pictorial emblem on title page, printer's device on colophon, large decorated or historiated initials, 2 headpieces and a tailpiece, 9 woodcut astronomical diagrams in the text 2 almost full page, and pages of tide tables, leaves: (8), 112, (2) - Address to the Readers by Raimondo (1 page), Errata on 2 pages and colophon on final page, collation: †-††4, A-Dd4, 2E6, bound in vellum over board, raised bands and gilt rules to spine, gilt lettered red morocco label, marbled endpapers. Boards very lightly marked and bowing very slightly, small ex libris label on verso front endpaper, pale brown stain to lower margins from title page (where it touches the imprint) to first page of text, fading to nothing, lower margin of O2v faintly marked, leaves Cc2--Ee2 very faintly damp stained to fore-edge margins and slighlty affecting text with no loss of legibility, very small chip to fore-edge margin of Cc2, another very small pale stain to edge of lower margin of Cc1-Ee6, otherwise contents very clean. A very good copy of a rare early book on the ebb and flow of tides plus a brief section on the movement of trepidation of the eighth sphere and another which is a supplementary declaration to the rule of Giovanni Bianchini for finding the altitude or latitude of the poles. Raimondo was an Italian mathematician and scholar born in Verona in 1505 or 1506 (d. 1591?). Little is known of his long life but he wrote on astrology, geomancy, physics and astronomy as well as fluid dynamics. Sotheran's Bibliotheca Chemico-Mathematica, Volume II, 13844, reports a French comment that this Trattato on the tides was Raimondo's best work published at the age of 84, and that it is rare. The ex libris label on the front endpaper is that of Pierre Duhem (1861 – 1916) a French physicist, mathematician, historian and philosopher of science, who made major contributions to the science of his day, particularly in the fields of hydrodynamics, elasticity, and thermodynamics.

Rare first edition of the account of the charting voyage by Maerten Gerritsz. Vries (1589-1646) to the North of Japan, together with the popular account of a Dutch West India Company voyage to Chile under Hendrik Brouwer (1581-1643). Another edition was published by Jan Jacobsz. Bouman circa 1650/60, followed by two editions in French of Vries's part only in 1673 and 1732. An edition based on the original manuscript of Vries's account was published in 1858 by Frederik Muller.Brouwer, one of the directors of the Dutch West India Company, acted as the commander of a fleet of six ships, specially sent to the western coast of South America to activate the trade between the Dutch and the natives, who were at the time in bad humor with the Spaniards. During this voyage, which resulted in the first place in a better knowledge of that coast, Brouwer died at Chiloe and was buried at Valdivia in August 1643. After his death the command fell to Elias Herckmans, who occupied an important post in Brazil. Appended to that journal is the very important account of a charting voyage to Japan. That same year (1643) Maerten Gerritsz. Vries, employed by the Dutch East India Company, was ordered to explore and chart the northernmost islands of Japan. He visited Hokkaido (Yezo) and Sakhalin, discovered the islands Iturup and Urup and gave his name to the strait between those islands. La Pérouse considered him one of the most eminent seafarers of his time. Fine copy of a rare work with accounts of two Dutch voyages to Chile and Japan.

      In Venetia, Appresso Domenico Nicolini, 1589.dimostra intorno a questa materia quanto habbiano errato in molte cose. Aggiuntaui una piena dichiaratione alla regola gia data dal famoso Astrologo M. Giovanni Bianchini per trovar col mezo dell'hore l'altezza de' Poli; et appresso un discorso fatto sopra il Moto della Trepidatione dell'Ottava Sfera, opera dignissima & curiosa novamente posta in luce. FIRST EDITION 1589, Italian text, small 4to, approximately 220 x 160 mm, 8¾ x 6¼ inches, author's large pictorial emblem on title page, printer's device on colophon, large decorated or historiated initials, 2 headpieces and a tailpiece, 9 woodcut astronomical diagrams in the text 2 almost full page, and pages of tide tables, leaves: (8), 112, (2) - Address to the Readers by Raimondo (1 page), Errata on 2 pages and colophon on final page, collation: ? - ??4, A - Dd4, 2E6, bound in vellum over board, raised bands and gilt rules to spine, gilt lettered red morocco label, marbled endpapers. Boards very lightly marked and bowing very slightly, small ex libris label on verso front endpaper, pale brown stain to lower margins from title page (where it touches the imprint) to first page of text, fading to nothing, lower margin of O2v faintly marked, leaves Cc2 - - Ee2 very faintly damp stained to fore - edge margins and slighlty affecting text with no loss of legibility, very small chip to fore - edge margin of Cc2, another very small pale stain to edge of lower margin of Cc1 - Ee6, otherwise contents very clean. A very good copy of a rare early book on the ebb and flow of tides plus a brief section on the movement of trepidation of the eighth sphere and another which is a supplementary declaration to the rule of Giovanni Bianchini for finding the altitude or latitude of the poles. Raimondo was an Italian mathematician and scholar born in Verona in 1505 or 1506 (d. 1591?). Little is known of his long life but he wrote on astrology, geomancy, physics and astronomy as well as fluid dynamics. Sotheran's Bibliotheca Chemico - Mathematica, Volume II, 13844, reports a French comment that this Trattato on the tides was Raimondo's best work published at the age of 84, and that it is rare. The ex libris label on the front endpaper is that of Pierre Duhem (1861 ? 1916) a French physicist, mathematician, historian and philosopher of science, who made major contributions to the science of his day, particularly in the fields of hydrodynamics, elasticity, and thermodynamics.

        Maris Pacifici (quod vulgo Mar del Zur)

      Antwerp: Plantin, 1589. Engraved map, 435 x 560 mm., original hand-colouring, small tear with old paper repair to original central fold, some toning, a few marks and stains, but in very good condition; framed. The first printed map devoted to the Pacific. A very good copy, with original hand-colouring, of the first printed map to be devoted solely to the Pacific. The map includes a vast southern continent, which stretches from a peak right below New Guinea all the way to connect with the southern shores of the Straits of Magellan. The map has many firsts: it is the first to name North and South America separately, and the first to shift the islands of New Guinea and Japan away from the American coast, thus stretching the Pacific into a more realistic shape. The map is also particularly good regarding Spanish America, with interesting details of the entire west coast of South America, Central America, California, and stretching north towards what is now Alaska. The width of America has been considerably corrected, so that it is now quite narrow across the Tropic of Capricorn; as Wagner points out, this has the effect of moving the peninsula of California, correctly, to the east. Ortelius used Spanish and Portuguese manuscript maps to correct many contemporary misconceptions about the Americas, although it remains unclear what his sources were for some of the other corrections. The absence of inland detail such as topographic features and the names of towns may reflect the Flemish cartographer's reliance upon portolan charts for inspiration. Yet it is rich in coastal detail, and especially the treatment of the west coast of the Americas and the islands of east Asia. The southern continent that fills the lower portion of the map incorporates Tierra del Fuego, but otherwise remains vast and mysterious. Ortelius celebrates the circumnavigation of Magellan with a beautiful and highly detailed engraving of his galleon Victoria situated off the coast of Peru, and the hypothetical southern land is named for the great circumnavigator but noted as still unexplored, "Terra Australis sive Magellanica nondum detecta". See also catalogue number xx for Ortelius' map of South-east Asia.

        Letter in French reporting highly confidential conversations with Queen Elizabeth I

      London, 1589. London, 1589. Single leaf of paper. Good. Single leaf of paper. Single leaf of paper, 40 lines in a humanistic cursive hand, single column, brown ink, a little damp-stained and chipped at one edge, else good, 290 ×170 mm (255 × 160 mm). Letter written by a diplomatic agent to the French ambassador concerning the writer';s conversations with Elizabeth I giving her thoughts on ‘le mariage';.Offered is a letter written in French by a diplomatic agent in London, yet to be identified, to the French ambassador (or another figure in the French embassy), referring to the writer';s conversations with Elizabeth I, representing her thoughts on ‘le mariage';. It is dated 15 August, although the year is uncertain, but clearly in the 1580s. It appears that the writer was involved in negotiations with the English court at the very highest levels. He begins his letter by stating that he has written already to the King, le ‘Roy Vre Maitre';, concerning negotiations with the Queen on a number of subjects, the most important of which was a proposition of marriage.While the letter was clearly of high diplomatic importance, it appears that no cipher was used, because the carrier was deemed entirely trustworthy: ‘Je ne vous escris poinnt au shifre car je scay que le porteur est fort seur.'; ‘Le mariage'; in question would appear to be between a young couple, but they, like the writer of the present letter, remain unknown. Public figures who are mentioned in the letter include Paul Choart, Monsieur de Buzanval, described as ‘adiant du Roy de Navarre,'; and the Lord Treasurer of England, ‘Millort tresorier';. The writer, having stated that he had written to his own master, adds ‘La response vous [ ? ] tems pour Monsr de Busanval';, so the parties were clearly in contact with Henry of Navarre (1589 Henri IV of France). Henry of Navarre sent Buzanval to England in January of 1586 to support his interests at the English court. He was still acting for Navarre in England in the autumn of 1587 (see C. Read, Mr Secretary Walsingham and the policy of Queen Elizabeth, 1925, III, pp. 199, 207).The writer refers to ‘mon maitre'; but, as to the addressee, to ‘le Roy Vre Maitre';. The writer';s hand is not typical of French official script of the period, although the letter is informal and confidential; however the spellings would seem to suggest that French was not the writer';s native tongue. It is possible that he was a diplomat for the protestant Netherlands, although his signature, which seems to end with the letters ‘Mont'; remains unidentified. As far as the addressee is concerned, the most likely identification of ‘le Roy Vre Maitre'; at this period is the King of France. Elizabeth said to the French ambassador in May 1587 that she wanted a perfect understanding with France (relations had been difficult in late 1586); an earlier allusion to friendship between the King of France and Elizabeth comes from 1583 (C. Read, op. cit, III, p. 205; and Cal. State Papers Foreign 1583-84, p. 5).

        The principall navigations, voiages and discoveries of the English nation, made by Sea or over Land?

      George Bishop and Ralph Newberie 1589 WITH THE RARE WORLD MAP FIRST EDITION. Folio, pp (xvi) + folding map, 1-501(1) 506-643 (xii) (Drake's voyage 644-825 (x). Black letter, some Roman and Italic. Large engraved folding world map after Abraham Ortelius in very good impression, mounted on guard, small repairs to inner border, upper outer corner slightly shaved rounding clouds, very minor repair to verso of one fold. Large, attractive woodcut initials and headpieces. Upper blank margin of t-p restored, that and next neatly repaired at gutter, also blank margins of last two ll. of table. A good, clean, crisp copy in handsome calf antique, gilt ornaments to spine and corners, a.e.g. First edition, of 'the most complete collection of voyages and discoveries, by land as well as by sea, and of the nautical achievements of the Elizabethans' (PMM 105 of the 2nd edn.) with the very frequently missing world map and the rare account of Sir Francis Drake's Circumnavigation (1577-80), as well as Sir Jerome Bowes' voyage to Muscovy in the cancel setting (corrected state). Hakluyt, although not an explorer himself, produced the most significant compilation of voyages of his day: "it is not only an epic of English prose but a unique source of reference to the great discoveries of the 15th and 16th centuries" (National Maritime Museum Catalogue). The work was remarkable in that it not only inspired many of the mercantile and exploratory voyages of later Elizabethan and Jacobean England but was actually used by those venturers in planning and executing their attempts - especially to North America, Russia, and the Far East. 'The arrangement is both chronological and regional, with personal reports by explorers and navigators, merchants and diplomats, the reproduction of documents, sailing direction etc. Book I covers the voyages to North and North-east, Book II South and South-east, and book III America.'(PMM p.63) Hakluyt was a gifted geographer and linguist, "one of the leading spirits in the Elizabethan maritime expansion" (PMM) and had met the foremost explorers of the age such as Drake, Raleigh, Gilbert and Frobisher, and corresponded with Ortelius and Mercator . With remarkable foresight, he saw America and India as key territories for the extension of British colonies and pleaded for an expansion of English interests there. He was a consultant to the East India Company and a patentee of that for Virginia.The present work includes a number of important voyages to the Americas, among them Verazzano's to Florida, Ulloa's and Alarcon's to California, Tomson's to New Mexico, Drake's to the West Indies, the Virginia Settlement Voyages of 1585 and later, as well as voyages to Russia and Africa (including the first voyage to Benin). The account of Drake's Circumnavigation was first published here, and includes his explorations around the Californian coast. Hakluyt initially suppressed it, privately printing the six-page account and inserting it (without pagination, as here) into some copies of the first edition. "Hakluyt had indeed begun to prepare such an account [of Drake's Circumnavigation] but withdrew it so as not to prejudice a collection of Drake's voyages which was in preparation. Permission now came to insert it, not improbably from Drake himself" (Hakluyt Handbook, p. 475). He placed a high premium on the accuracy of his work, and the first setting of the Bowes voyage to Muscovy was suppressed on account of its errors. It is only in some copies (as here) that it is replaced. The impressive folding map, which Hakluyt tells us is "one of the best general mappes of the world" is based on several Ortelius maps, the central oval taken from his third World map of 1587 (Hinde I, p. 179).
