SIMON MAIOLO Maioli
Ruffinelli e Zanetti, Roma, 1597. In-4°; pp. (16), 1177, (3). Dedica a Papa Clemente VIII. Legatura in piena pergamena molle con titolo manoscritto al dorso.Al frontespizio una nota manoscritta coeva recita "Expensis Regiis Villalpandus"; accanto al titolo timbro a inchiostro della biblioteca Borghese.Edizione originale di quest'opera enciclopedica, che fu poi messo all'indice. Fu ristampato in successive edizioni solo a Praga e Francoforte, con privilegi che esplicitamente vengono ottenuti grazie alle censura di una parte del testo.L'opera è strutturata in ventitre colloqui, tra il teologo, il cavaliere e il filosofo, ciascuno dei quali ha un argomento, ad esempio Meteora, Lapides, Metalla, Herbae, Plantae, Ignis ecc.; vi si tratta tra l'altro di fossili, vulcanologia, biologia, entomologia ecc.; molti i riferimenti all'Orbe Novo, in particolare al Messico e al Giappone con l'esplicito richiamo a Xavier, Froes e agli altri viaggiatori Gesuiti. Il libro è concepito come un Museo di rarità di scienze naturali. Evidentemente il Maiolo non esita a descrivere scrupolosamente anche molti aspetti esoterici e soprannaturali, tanto da incorrere nella censura: sono questi gli anni del processo a Giordano Bruno. Il Maioli voleva con questa voluminosa opera condensare tutto il sapere dei suoi tempi, e in particolare censisce le ultime scoperte, siano esse stata fatte per invenzione e sperimentazione, siano esse dei rari ritrovamenti in natura nelle terre che in quegli anni venivano per la prima volta esplorate. cfr.

EVERAERT, Martin]
[Leiden, Jan Claesz van Dorp, 1597 & Heidelberg, Commelin, 1602]. 4to. Totalling 240 leaves. ((Collation: *2, 4A-6O4) Missing: general title, introduction etc, and the ephemerides for the years 1590 to 1598 and 1614 to 1615. See Hoogendoorn, Evera02 and Bibliotheca Belgica E 44 and E 45. Part of a larger work: The edition 1597 starts with the Ephemerides for the year 1590 and ends with the year 1610. (see also TB 1853 & Bierens de Haan 1369) This was supplemented in the Commelin-edition 1602 by the Ephemerides for the years 1611 to 1615: "Une partie de cette édition est de l'impression de Leiden, 1597. Les ff.lim.seuls ont été réimprimés, la liste des 'errata' a été omise, et les éphémérides pour les années 1611-1615 ont été ajoutées." According to Hoogendoorn the supplement was printed in Franeker by Gillis van den Rade. VERY RARE EPHEMERIDES by the Dutch physician and astronomer Marten Everaert (1599-1613), probably published in parts. MOST INTERESTING COPY with many contemporary annotations and corrections by a scholar. These annotations refer to natural events (floods earthquakes, severe frost etc.), the war (a.o. Siege of Den Bosch; the conquest and pillage of Budapest), and many references to astronomy: Kepler, Longomontanus, Al-Qabisi, comets. Although the annotations refer a.o. to Copenhague, Bohemia, Bavaria, are mostly written in Latin with some French at the end, and are clearly written by a person well versed in astronomy, we have failed to identify him.

Macrobius, Ambrosius Aurelius Theodosius
apud Iacobum Stoer, 1597. In-16°, pp. 745, (103), marca tipografica al frontespizio, diverse xilografie n.t. tra cui un planisfeso , legatura in piena pergamena coeva, titolo manoscritto al dorso. Buona copia, genuina. Il volume contiene due delle opere più significative di Macrobio, scrittore latino del IV-V secolo d'origine africana. Nella prima, commento neoplatonico al ciceroniano "Sogno di Scipione", l'a. "introduce le sue persuasioni filosofiche, ispirate ai princìpi e agli ideali del neoplatonismo del tempo e discute della natura dell'anima e di Dio, dell'universo e degli astri." ed espone un concetto geografico della terra che si differenzia da quello tolemaico e ne offre una esemplificazione nella figura del planisfero a pagina 191; nei sette libri dei "Saturnali" in forma di dialogo tratta vari interessanti argomenti, tra cui dell'origine delle feste in onore di Saturno, della divisione dell'anno, del culto di alcune divinità e soprattutto dell'arte e della tecnica di Virgilio; vari passaggi riguardano fisica, matematica, geografia ed astronomia. Macrobio si preoccupa soprattutto che non vada perduto il patrimonio della tradizione degli antichi, in un'epoca di incipiente decadenza della romanità. Di particolare interesse ed importanza geografico-scientifica è il mappamondo pre-Tolemaico in silografia (145x135 mm); la terra è formata da quattro grandi isole con una zona torrida inagibile a separare i due emisferi.

Titre doublé. Seconde édition très rare de ce texte étonnant, sorte de fiction romanesque qui mêle des descriptions d'uvres d'art à des réflexions scientifiques et philosophiques. « L'auteur introduit des visiteurs dans le Palais de Minerve et leur fait expliquer par les nymphes qui forment la cour de cette déesse, tous les objets qui s'offrent à sa vue, objets d'arts ou de science. De là une foule de dissertations philosophiques ou artistiques, d'explications de procédés chimiques ou mécaniques» analyse Haag, qui trouve par ailleurs ce texte bien futile.

HONDIUS, Jodocus the younger.
V.d. Krogt, Globi Neerlandici HON VI, terrestrial state 1 (unrecorded variant between 1* and 1j) & celestial state 2; not in E. Dekker, Globes at Greenwich; V.d. Krogt, Old globes in the Netherlands. A pair of terrestrial and celestial globes prepared by Jodocus Hondius the younger (1597-1651), engraved by Abraham Goos and first published by Hondius and his brother-in-law Johannes Janssonius in 1623, the terrestrial globe here in its first state (1623) and the celestial globe in its second (1648). In this period Amsterdam was the world's leading centre of globe manufacturer and in Amsterdam Hondius (succeeding his father in 1612) and Willem Jansz. Blaeu stood head and shoulders above the rest. "Globe production in the period after 1597 was characterized by an interaction between Hondius and Blaeu. Whenever one came up with something new, the other followed with something better to try to outdo his competitor" (V.d. Krogt, p. 187). Van der Krogt notes that Hondius's 1623 celestial globe appears to take Blaeu's 68 cm globe (engraved in 1617) as its model. The terrestrial globe includes a note to the reader, explaining that the globes contain "changes in all of America and in and around the Sea of Tartary [= Arctic Sea], as well as a multitude of new things in other places". It shows the discoveries of Henry Hudson in the Arctic and what is now the northern United States and Canada (1607-1611) and of Schouten & Le Maire in the South Seas (1615-1617) and is dedicated to the Dutch West India Company (WIC).The globes come from the collection of the Dukes of Luynes in their histor … [Click Below for Full Description]

Thorley, Rev. John
pp.xliii, 206, with 4 plates and engraved frontis. Contents very clean. Full calf-leather binding with more recent spine, thereby keeping original boards which are rubbed in places. Comes with very well made Solander case, which has the title of the book on its spine (gilt lettering on maroon coloured leather). With neat book-plate. Overall, a very nice copy of this scarce first edition in very good condition. (Harding 97). Thorley's secret was the puffball narcotic, which he used when uniting colonies; its use was mentioned in 1597 by John Gerard and had long been practised in the Netherlands. Of English writers, Thorley was the first to mention having found wax scales in the pockets of worker bees. (Harding 97).
