[Biblia Arabica].
Roma, Typographia Medicea, 1591.. In-folio (mm. 324x215); pagg. 9-462, (2, ultima bianca); con 149 vignette silografiche su disegno da Antonio Tempesta che illustrano scene dei vangeli; testo in arabo e latino sovrapposti entro cornice tipografica. Piena pergamena settecentesca con titolo su tassello in oro al dorso.. Seconda edizione del primo evangelario in arabo (stampato nel 1590 senza traduzione latina) e prima con traduzione interlineare in latino composta da Leonardo Sionita, curata da Giovambattista Raimondi (1536-1614), grande orientalista cui era stata affidata la Tipografia Medicea dal duca Ferdinando de' Medici. La tipografia, fondata nel 1584, era specializzata nella pubblicazione di opere in lingue orientali, in particolar modo in arabo; dopo la morte del Raimondi la tipografia fu trasferita a Firenze. L'opera inizia a pag. 9 senza frontespizio e presentazione. Le vignette furono probabilmente incise in legno probabilmente da Leonardo Parasole su disegno di Antonio Tempesta, artista fiorentino celebre per gli affreschi eseguiti in Vaticano e in molti palazzi nobiliari romani. Il testo arabo fu invece ideato da Robert Granjon, giunto a Roma su committenza del pontefice Gregorio XIII per l'incisione dei caratteri di alcuni alfabeti orientali. Il testo arabo e basato sulla Vulgata alessandrina, databile a fine XIII secolo. Le prime 8 carte con il titolo furono aggiunte solo nel 1619Darlow & Moule 1637: "The early printed editions of Arabic Gospels are all forms of the Alexandrian Vulgate; his name is given to a revision made towards the end of the thirteenth cent … [Click Below for Full Description]

BOTANY - PORTA, GIAMBATTISTA DELLA. 1535?-1615.
Francofurti, apud Ioannem Wechelum and Petrum Fischerum consortes, 1591. Second Edition, 8vo.7 x 5 inches, Title in red & black with with woodcut portrait on verso, [14] + 552 pages. Illustrated with 32 large woodcuts in the text. Bound in continental contemporary full panelled calf, with red title label. One or two leaves trimmed tightly in the index just affecting the running title, and one leaf of the prelims close on the fore-edge but no loss of text, otherwise a very fine clean copy. Thirty-two fine woodcut images of plants and animals distinguish this work on the signatures of plants, which was originally published in Naples in 1588. It is sometimes held that della Porta was the real originator of the botanical Doctrine of Signatures in any approximation to a scientific form. The theory was that Divine Providence had formed plants in such a way as to indicate the ailments they would cure, e.g. a walnut looked like the human brain, so would cure head ailments. The illustrations of the 'Phytognomonica' are helpful in interpreting Porta's view. The part of man's body which is healed by a particular herb, or the animal whose bites or stings can be cured by it, are represented in the same woodcut as the herb. The back view of a human head with a thick crop of hair is introduced into the block with the Maidenhair Fern, which is an ancient specific for baldness; a Pomegranate with its seeds exposed, and a plant of 'Toothwort,' with its hard, white scale-leaves, are represented in the same figure as a set of human teeth'.

Bei capilettera xilogr., testatine e finalini. Firma di appartenenza al frontespizio asportata. Lievi bruniture e un alone tra le pp.194 e 340. Nel complesso buona copia. Angeli , Pietro degli (nome umanistico Pier Angelio Bargeo). - Umanista (Barga 1517 - Pisa 1596). Ebbe giovinezza avventurosa; dal 1546 al 1548 insegnò latino e greco a Reggio Emilia; chiamato nel 1549 all'univ. di Pisa, v'insegnò fino al 1586 e poi di nuovo dal 1592. Come poeta latino ebbe grande e meritata fama per la squisita eleganza dei suoi versi. Il Tasso, per aiuti nella revisione della Gerusalemme liberata, si rivolse anche a lui, che si era accinto a un poema latino sul medesimo argomento (Syrias, in 11 libri, 1591). Sono da ricordare di lui anche il Cynegeticon (1561), poema sulla caccia coi cani, l'Aucupium (1566), poemetto sul modo di catturare gli uccelli, rimasto incompleto, varie liriche latine e le Poesie toscane (1589, insieme alla trad. in volgare dell'Edipo re di Sofocle). Intransigente e avverso al volgare, egli finì, però, con l'accettare la nuova letteratura e appartenne all'Accademia fiorentina, della quale fu cònsolo. Graesse I, 292. Camerini II, 179

PORTA, J.B.
Francofurti, apud Ioannem Wechelum & Petrum Fischerum consortes, 1591. Royal-8vo (207 x 134 mm) pp. (16), 552, with woodcut portrait of Porta on verso of title, printer's device on title and 32 woodcuts in the text. Contemporary limp vellum. Second edition of this work on signatures in plants which was originally published in Naples in 1588. "It is sometimes held that della Porta was the real originator of the botanical Doctrine of Signatures in any approximation to a scientific form. The theory was that Divine Providence had formed plants in such a way as to indicate the ailments they would cure (e.g. a walnut looked like the human brain, so would cure head ailments). Protagonists of this theory quarrelled violently with those who believed in astrological medicine ..." (Hunt). The elaborate woodcut title shows a.o. a lynx, emblem of the Accademia Lincei, of which Porta was a member. Galileo and Colonna were fellow associates in that society. "The book has a genuine scientific merit as well, for it groups plants ecologically by locale and distribution" (Anderson p. 198). The woodcuts are of a very high quality and rare praised as such by Arber. "The illustrations of the 'Phytognomonica' are helpful in interpreting Porta's view. The part of man's body which is healed by a particular herb, or the animal whose bites or stings can be cured by it, are represented in the same woodcut as the herb.

VIÈTE, François [& VAULEZARD, J. L. (translator)].
Very rare first edition of the first French translation and exposition of Viète's <i>In artem analyticum isagoge</i> (Tours, 1591), the earliest work on symbolic algebra, here bound with a first edition of Vaulezard's translation of Viète's <i>Zeteticorum libri quinque</i> (Tours, 1593), which gives examples of the application of his 'analytic art' to problems from Diophantus' <i>Arithmetica</i>. The third work is a scathing criticism of a slightly later translation of the <i>Isagoge</i> by Antoine Vasset, a response to criticisms Vasset had made of Vaulezard's translation in his own work.<br/><br/> "The most important of Viète's many works on algebra... [<i>In artem analyticem isagoge</i>] also introduced the use of letters both for known quantities, which were denoted by the consonants <i>B, C, D</i>, and so on, and for unknown quantities, which were denoted by the vowels. Furthermore, in using <i>A</i> to denote the unknown quantity <i>x</i>, Viète sometimes employed <i>A</i> quadratus, <i>A</i> cubus ... to represent <i>x<sup>2</sup>, x<sup>3</sup>, ...</i> This innovation, considered one of the most significant advances in the history of mathematics, prepared the way for the development of algebra" (DSB XIV 19). <br/><br/> Perhaps the most important part of the work is chapter 4, in which "he presents a mode of calculation carried out completely in terms of 'species' of numbers and calls it <i>logistice speciosa</i> - in contrast with calculation using determinate numbers, which is <i>logistice numerosa</i>. Of significance for the formation of the concepts of modern m … [Click Below for Full Description]

CURABELLE, Jacques.
First edition, complete with its very rare supplement, of this polemic against Girard Desargues (1591-1661). Important for containing literal extracts from Desargues' <i>Brouillon Projet</i>, the work also contains the first printed reference to 'La Pasqualle', the mystic hexagram, published in 1640 by the sixteen year-old Pascal in a broadside of which only one copy survives.<br/><br/> Desargues' most important work, which constitutes the birth of modern projective geometry, was <i>Brouillon projet d'une atteinte aux événemens des rencontres du Cone avec un Plan.</i> "The <i>Brouillon Projet</i> on conics, of which he published fifty copies in 1639, is a daring projective presentation of the theory of conic sections; although considered at first in three-dimensional space, as plane sections of a cone of revolution, these curves are in fact studied as plane perspective figures by means of involution, a transformation that holds a place of distinction in the series of demonstrations" (DSB IV 47). Desargues intended his work to appeal not only to theoreticians but also practical men, and this perhaps explains his use of an original vocabulary which, however, made the pamphlet very difficult to read. It exerted little influence at the time, and disappeared from view (in fact, it was thought to be lost until a copy was found in 1951). Nevertheless, its methods formed the basis of the new techniques of projective geometry developed in the nineteenth century by Poncelet and his followers.<br/><br/> "In August 1640, Desargues published, again under the general title <i>Brouillon P … [Click Below for Full Description]

LE MOYNE, Jacques (c.1533-1588). - Theodor DE BRY
Theodor De Bry, Frankfurt, 1591. (13 1/2 x 9 5/8 inches). Engraved title, engraved section title, folding engraved map "Florida Americae Provinciae . descriptio", 42 plates after Le Moyne with letterpress titling above and text beneath, 2 engraved illustrations. Contemporary limp vellum, cloth ties, contained within a modern morocco backed cloth box. A fine wide-margined copy of the first Latin edition of a seminal illustrated work for early North America, with Jacques Le Moyne's spectacular images of the region's Native Americans and a very important map of Florida. With the publication of this work, together with Hariot's Virginia, De Bry launched what would later become known as his Grand Voyages. These first two works are without question the most important of the series both in terms of their contemporary influence and their historical and ethnographic value to modern scholars and collectors. The text of the Brevis narratio. describes the earliest French settlements of what are now portions of the United States and are here united by De Bry with engravings based on watercolours by a member of the expedition to the New World. To most of the Old World, this work presented the first accurate eyewitness depiction and account of Native Americans. In the mid-1560s two French expeditions led by Jean Ribault and René Goulaine de Laudonnière sought to establish a Hugenot settlement in Florida. Among those accompanying Laudonnière was Jacques Le Moyne de Morgues: born in Dieppe, France in about 1533, he was appointed artist to the expedition which sailed in April 1564.
