      London: Vallentine Sims, 1596. Second Edition . Hardcover. Only Obtainable Copy in 75 years of the Sole 16th Century Book by Paracelsus in English. 181 x 124 mm (7 1/8 x 4 7/8"). 8 p.l., 56, 59-82 pp. (Complete). Collected and translated by John Hester; preface by Bernard Georges Penot. Second Edition. Pleasing contemporary sheepskin, sympathetically rebacked in modern times, flat spine. Printer&#39;;s device and woodcut border on title page, woodcut initials and headpieces. Front pastedown with bookplate of Bibliotheca Philosophica Hermetica; verso of title and last leaf with Mercantile Library Philadelphia library stamp. Sudhoff 239; Durling 3517; Wellcome 4805; STC 19180. Extremities a bit rubbed, a couple of small abrasions on lower board, but the binding solid and not without appeal. Leaves a little browned, one leaf with paper imperfection affecting a handful of words, margins trimmed a bit close, with loss of a couple letters from shoulder notes in one gathering, additional trivial imperfections, otherwise an unusually well-preserved copy, the text clean and fresh, and with none of the often flagrant signs of use that afflict this kind of book. This is the rare second--and the first obtainable--edition of the only 16th century book by Paracelsus in English, and the only copy to appear in Anglo-American auction records since at least 1975 (Americana Exchange lists nothing else since the 1930s). The Swiss physician Paracelsus (1493-1541) was the most influential and controversial scientific figure of his time. He has been called the founder of modern pharmacology and psychiatry as well as the pioneer of modern chemists. He was also called "the medical Luther" because of his vain, intemperate, and truculent iconoclasm, something that made it difficult to find a community to accept him as a resident, let alone to find an audience for his brilliant and abstruse writings. DSB tells us that "Chief among Paracelsus&#39; contributions to medical theory was his new concept of disease." Rather than relying on the classical paradigm of "humors" which got out of balance, Paracelsus emphasized "the external cause of a disease . . . a specific agent foreign to the body, which takes possession of one of its parts, imposing its own rules on form and function and thereby threatening life. This is the parasitic or ontological concept of disease--and essentially the modern one." The 114 "experiments" here are brief case histories describing illnesses the great physician has cured with one of his concoctions, some of these containing dangerous mercury, sulfuric acid, or antimony, others distilled from garden herbs like lemon balm and chamomile. The work is an abridged translation of "Centum Quindecim Curationes Experimentaque è Germanico Idiomate in Latinum Versa," and first appeared in an undated English edition around 1583. STC records just one copy of that edition (at the Bodleian); this is also the only one of that printing known to Sudhoff. Paracelsus&#39; experiments are followed in our volume by a collection of iatrochemical preparations by Bernard Georges Penot (Latin name B. G. a Portu Aquitano, 1520-1617) and a fragment of the works of Johan Isaac Hollandus on minerals, this primarily dealing with the production of Quinta Essentia by means of distillation. The volume ends with a work on treating gunshot wounds by French physician Joseph Duchesne (Latin name Quercetanus or Quirisitanus, ca. 1544-1609). STC records the existence of another (impossibly rare) 16th century imprint in English (on the distillation of "oyles" and other medical topics) to which Paracelsus&#39; name is attached, but that book is said not to have been authored by him.

        VALENTIA REGNUM; Contestani, Ptol. Edentani, Plin.

      Atlas Novus. Amsterdam. - Copper engraving. Original colour. Size: 50.5 x 38.5 cm. (20 x 15 inches) Fine condition. Highly decorative map centered on Valencia and extending south to Murcia and Orihuella and North to the Cenia by the famous Dutch cartographer Blaeu. Map embellished with sea monster, ships, rhumb lines emanating from compass rose and ornate title cartouche with the arms of Valencia. The map is very detailed and gives many place names, smaller villages or settlements. Dutch text to verso. Joan (John) Bleau (1596-1673) was a son of a famous Dutch cartographer, Willem Janzoon Bleau, and he shared his father's passion and continued his work. Joan Bleau's 'Atlas Maior' is one of the most extraordinary works within this category ever produced. It is known for its exquisite engraving, calligraphy and colouring as well as heraldic detail, pictorial work and the intricate cartouches, which all amounted to the appeal of this work. In fact it is argued that some of the maps produced by Joan were considered to be the finest published anywhere in the seventeenth century.

"Edizione originale" di questa importante opera su Bergamo, preceduta cronologicamente solo dal "De origine et temporibus urbis Bergomi" (Venezia, 1532) di Francesco Bellafini (con un altro scritto da lui edito, cioè una descrizione della città di M.A. Michiel). Il "Theatrum", che apparve postumo a cura del figlio Mario, è diviso in 6 parti, ciascuna preceduta da un ?Argumentum? di Io.B. Mageni. Il testo è in esametri con note a margine. In quest?opera il Muzio descrisse, non di rado con dovizia di particolari, le vicende della storia di Bergamo, i luoghi, gli edifici notevoli, le istituzioni pubbliche e private, le famiglie ragguardevoli e le numerose personalità che nelle varie discipline onorarono la città. In Appendice lo scritto ?De Rebus Bergomensibus? di Moyses Muzio, autore vissuto all'inizio del VIII secolo d.C. al tempo di Giustiniano II, cui l'opera e' dedicata, che Achille Muzio considera proprio antenato. Il breve trattato descrive l'ubicazione geografica e la configurazione urbana della citta' a quell'epoca. Nato nei primi anni del Cinquecento e appartenente a una distinta famiglia bergamasca, scrisse opere latine in distici elegiaci imitando lo stile di Ovidio. Godette di buone e frequenti relazioni con gli uomini più colti della Bergamo del suo tempo e morì nel 1594. Cfr. ?Le ediz. del XVI sec.? (Lombarde),I,57 - Schlosser Magnino, p. 570: ?contiene notizie storico-artistiche? - Chiodi ?Le cinquecentine della Biblioteca Mai di Bergamo?, p. 418.

        De Vita Emmanuelis Philiberti Allobrogum Ducis et Subalpinorum Principis, Libri duo.

      Io. Dominicum Tarinum,, Augustae Taurinorum, 1596 - Cm. 32, pp. (16) 235 (1). Grande stemma sabaudo inciso al frontespizio, ogni pagina inquadrata in un filetto. Testate, bei capolettera e fregi tipografici nel testo. Bella legatura seicentesca in piena pergamena molle con fregi in oro centrali e filetti in oro ad inquadrare i piatti. Titoli ms. al dorso. Qualche piccola mancanza alle estremità dei piatti, ma bell'esemplare fresco, genuino e marginoso, a carte perfettamente candide. L'autore fu scrittore e uomo politico, grande erudito del suo tempo, nato a Milano nel 1528 e morto nel 1601. Prima edizione di un'opera significativa nell'ambito dell'editoria piemontese del '500, dedicata alla vita di Emanuele Filiberto (1528-1580). Come la gran parte degli esemplari censiti, anche il presente è privo (verosimilmente dall'origine) del ritratto.

        Nova Hispania, et Nova Galicia.

      Copper engraved double page map, had colored in outline, large colored cartouche, 34.7 x 48. 3 cm (13 3/4" x 19"). Latin text on verso. Some aging and toning, verso repairs along center fold, and a few other places, tear at crease in lower portion of map, lower margin partially replaced below neat line, which is defective in one place; despite defects, an attractive map with a nice impression. Jannson (1596-1664) was a Dutch mapmaker during the "golden age" of Dutch cartography. He started out as a publisher and bookseller, but when he married the daughter of another map maker, Jodocus Hondius, he got into that business. In 1633 he and his brother-in=law (Henry Hodicus) produced the two volume edition of the Mercator Atlas. The present map shows Mexico City and points west, and the west coast of Mexico shown from present day Tuxpan to Acapulco de Juarez. A large cartouche shows a lion holding a sword on the top of the royal shield of Spain, which is flanked by a man and woman in Greek style togas. Portinaro and Knirsch p.315.

A few other minor repairs to blank margins. Else a handsome, near fine copy. With bookplates of Boies Penrose and another bookplate on the rear free endpaper. Raleigh&#39;s voyage to find El Dorado Sir Walter Raleigh, famous Elizabethean courtier and adventurer, was involved in numerous schemes for establishing English colonies in the New World and in raiding the Spanish empire in the Americas. In the 1580s he was a major figure in the English court and in naval and military ventures. But in 1592 Raleigh fell from grace for marrying one of the Queen&#39;s ladies-in-waiting without her approval, and was thrown in the Tower. When released, he had lost much of his power and influence. He sought to regain it, and make a fortune, by a voyage to northern South America to seek the legendary city of El Dorado, where he believed he would find the streets paved in gold. Raleigh&#39;s voyage, usually called his second (after his voyage to found the first Virginia colony in 1585) took place under a cloud. He was strictly enjoined from attacking the Spanish, but on arrival in the Caribbean he attacked Trinidad, siezing the Spanish governor, and raiding the coast on Venezuela. He then pressed up the Orinoco River, going more than four hundred miles upstream, where he turned back after obtaining samples of what appeared to be gold. This book details his pioneering exploration, in which he accurately describes the country in the most precise description made until the mid-19th century. The book also theorizes, at length, on the chimerical city of El Dorado and its vast wealth, and on the extraordinary gold ornaments he observed among the Indians of the region. The gold samples, however, proved to be worthless. On his return from the El Dorado expedition Raleigh resumed his active place in the English court, but was accused of treason on the accession of James I and confined in the Tower until 1616. When released, he made one last attempt at finding El Dorado, in a disasterous second voyage there which ended in total failure, and ultimately in Raleigh&#39;s execution. This is the third issue as identified by European Americana and Church (all were issued in 1596 and have essentially the same text and setting). This copy contains the misprint "Gallie" for "Gallego" on p.[1], line 22. According to the entry in Sabin a copy was offered by a London bookseller in 1885 at £50.

        [ICONES, HABITUS GETUSQUE INDORUM AC LUSITANORUM PER INDIAM VIVENTIUM, TEMPLORUM AEDIUM, ARBORUM, FRUTUM, HERBARUM, AROMATUM]

      [Amsterdam: Cornelis Claesz, ca. 1596-1604].. Twenty-nine (of thirty) plates, plus two maps and one extra plate. Oblong quarto. Contemporary Dutch vellum, gilt. Cockled, soiled. Marginal stains on two plates; one plate chipped in margin, not affecting text. Very good. In a cloth clamshell case, leather label. This extremely rare portfolio of plates consists of fine early impressions of Linschoten&#39;s famous views of Portuguese Asia. They are among the first eyewitness illustrations of the East to reach Europe, and were by far the most widely disseminated. Donald Lach has called them "a watershed in Europe&#39;s pictorial impression of Asia." They rank among the most influential images of the period, and appeared in the many subsequent editions of Linschoten&#39;s works. The illustrations were executed by Joannes and Baptista Doetechum from sketches brought back by Linschoten. Linschoten described the images of the people, places, methods of travel, and animals of Asia as "counterfeits from life," which would give a realistic representation of what he saw, but also a general perception of the reality of the distant East. In the present copy, a large, double-page view of Goa is missing, while two maps, one of Mozambique and one of Ascension Island, have been added. Also added is an untitled panorama of an Indonesian or Malaysian procession. This plate is likely connected to the 1598 Claesz publication of Houtman & Loewijk&#39;s account of the first Dutch expedition. It seems clear that the present item is one of the very rare issues of the plates produced for separate sale by Linschoten&#39;s publisher, Cornelis Claesz. Claesz sold the images and maps separately from the ITINERARIO..., under a title translated as THE FIGURES AND MAPS OF JAN HUYGHEN. He used Latin and Dutch captions, as in our copy, in order to increase the images&#39; marketability. Four similar sets of Linschoten plates are known, but only one of these, at the Atlas van Stolk in Rotterdam, has a titlepage. The other three copies which, like ours, lack titlepages, are at the Universiteitsbibliotheek in Amsterdam (containing all the plates), the Herzog August Bibliothek in Wolfenbüttel and the Amsterdams Scheepvaort Museum (lacking some plates as well as the titlepage). They all have Latin and Dutch text beneath each image. In Tiele&#39;s MEMOIR (1867), on page 103 he discusses an edition of the ICONES... containing twenty-nine plates and no titlepage. Ernst Van Den Boogaart, who has produced a fine study of the publication history, iconographic significance, and coded messages of Linschoten&#39;s work, examines these issues in great detail. The Linschoten plates were produced to accompany his famed ITINERARIO..., in which he gave his perceptions of the culture, customs, and societies of Asia. Linschoten had lived in Goa for six years from 1583, and while he never ventured far from the Portuguese capital, he did have an "avaricious thirst for knowledge which enabled him to get detailed information of land and sea as far afield as the Spice Islands and China" (Boies Penrose). He released his work at a time when Europe was desperately in need of knowledge about the Far East. A wonderful collection of Asian and early travel iconography, in an exceptionally rare edition.

        La Pratica di Prospettiva

      Venice: Girolamo Franceschi, 1596. Hardcover. Very Good. Folio [39.5 x 27.5 cm]. (4) ff., 1-43 consecutively numbered plates; (1) ff. [colophon for book one]; plates 44-65; includes engraved title page, half-title for part two; full-page colophon to part one with large woodcut device. Bound in contemporary flexible vellum. First title page retaining original margin and thus outer deckled edges are folded in. Some scattered foxing buy generally very good, with brilliant impressions of the architectural and geometrical plates. An unusual copy, retaining the original size, fully-deckled engraved title-page (usually severely cropped) of the scarce first edition of this striking work on perspective. Composed by Accademia del Disegno member Lorenzo Sirigatti, this is the first work to articulate in print that the full effect of the perspective frame - for instance a stage set - requires the viewer to be positioned along the main axis (Millard). This is one of the major Italian books on the subject of perspective, combining the visual language of the German model-book tradition of Jamnitzer and Lencker with the Italian tradition of linear perspective treated previously by Serlio and Barbaro, especially as applied to architectural theory and stage design. The first section of the work consists of 43 plates, each with explanatory text, which takes the reader progressively from simple to more complex examples of perspectival illustration, starting with basic geometrical forms (the square, circle, polygon) then more complex architectural forms (arches, crossvaults, staircases, doors, capitols, facades), culminating in the mazzocchio, viola, lute, and a design of a stage. The second part, consisting of a series of 21 full-page plates, focuses on more highly finished architectural details-the architrave, capitol, arch, façade etc.-and, according to Edgarton, "special problems of chiaroscuro including several remarkable engravings of shaded spheres," ie. polyhedral shapes of varying complexity and strangeness. Sirigatti was also influential beyond the realm of drawing, design, and architecture. Edgerton writes that Galileo "most certainly studied" La pratica di prospettiva, which was published in Venice while Galileo was teaching nearbyby in Padova, and that when Galileo and Thomas Harriot simultaneously pioneered the use of the telescope to study the moon&#39;s surface, it was Galileo&#39;s training in chiaroscuro that led him to see mountains and craters where Harriot only saw "strange spottedness." * Mortimer 479; Fowler 396; Millard 129 (1625); Adams S1224; Cigognara 860; Samuel Edgerton, The Mirror, the Window, and the Telescope: How Renaissance Linear Perspective Changed Our Vision of the Universe (Cornell, 2009)
