REGIUS, Henricus.
First edition (see below) of this rare and controversial work on physical, medical and natural philosophy from a Cartesian viewpoint. Among the wide variety of topics covered, there is a chapter on the circulation of the blood (p. 267 ff.), and also an interesting section on magnetism: "the illustrations [of magnets] are noteworthy, particularly the one on p. 207, which shows the lines of force around the magnet as well as the lines of induction through it" (Wheeler Gift). <br/><br/> Regius (1598-1679) was a major figure in disputes over Cartesianism in Utrecht during the seventeenth century. He received a medical degree from the University of Padua before returning in 1638 to become a professor of medicine and botany at the University of Utrecht. A neighbour of one of Descartes' oldest Dutch friends, Renerius, Regius became intimate with Descartes, and an advocate of his views. When in the summer of 1641 a student of Regius' defended a Cartesian thesis, the new rector of the university, Gisbertius Voetius, became worried. When Regius defended a thesis in December that held that the unity of body and soul to be accidental rather than necessary, Descartes immediately recognized the danger and wrote to Regius that he had been misunderstood. But it was too late: a pamphlet war ensued and Descartes distanced himself from his old friend. <br/><br/> In 1646 Regius published <i>Fundamenta physics</i>, in which he developed the Cartesian doctrine of matter and motion, including the theory of vortices. According to Regius' modern sounding definition, living bodies are those whose pa … [Click Below for Full Description]

Also a Treatise of the Purallee, declaring what Purallee is, how the same first began, what a Purallee man may doe, how he may hunt and use his owne Purallee, how far he may pursue and follow after his chase, together with the lymits and boundes, aswell of the Forrest, as the Puralley. Collected and gathered together, aswell out of the Common Lawes and Statutes of this land, as also out of sundry learned auncient Aucthors, and out of the Assises and Iters of Pickring and Lancaster.

METELLUS, J
Cologne, 1598. No Binding. Very Good. 7 1/8 x 9 inches. Fine condition. Attractively engraved and very rare work that shows the area "at a period just before the English sent a number of voyages to explore and settle the coast" (Burden). There is a possibility that the Metellus pre-dated the Wytfliet map of the same area; there is no question, however, that one was derived from the other. See Burden 118 on the question of precedence. Both maps were among the first to have "Virginia" in their titles. An intriguing aspect of the map is that it presents the Norumbega legend at the height of its prominence. The term on the map is used both as a designation for the entire region and what is presented as the major city in the entire Northeast. The legend held that Norumbega was the luxurious capitol of an advanced Indian civilization. All of this reflects, in fact, Europeans' near total ignorance of the Northeast at the time. A most telling "silence" on the map is absence of New York Harbor, which Verrazano had explored three quarters of a century before this map appeared. Burden 118.

GALLUCCI, Giovanni Paolo
Venice,: Ruberto Meietti,, 1598.. Quarto, engraved title with instruments, a folding plate, numerous woodcuts in the text, and three plates with working volvelles (those on pages 149 and 150 showing the upper and lower part of the hemisphere, and the one on page 153, with one fixed and three movable parts, showing the upper part of the globe as seen from the latitude of Venice); two gatherings slightly toned, 18th-century half calf, patterned paper sides, some minor wear to lower board, endpapers sympathetically replaced at some date. First edition of this very scarce book, a 'handsome treatise on the fabrication and use of astronomical and navigational instruments...' (Shirley). Gallucci's comprehensive summary of the state of contemporary knowledge of astronomy, cosmography and mathematics, is particularly concerned with the use of scientific instruments. The fine woodcut illustrations include three working volvelles with moving parts, one of which depicts a complete southern hemisphere, with a scattering of islands in the location of Australia.Gallucci discusses the works of Apianus, Gemma Frisius, Stoeffler, FinÈ, Scarani and Santbech, and details Rojas's Planisferum, and many of his inventions like the Hemisphero uranico, the nautical quadrant, and the armillary astrolabe. For some of the instruments this is the only description available.This important book was not known to Singer (A History of Technology), and is not recorded by Alden and Landis (European Americana), although two of the maps clearly show America.

LODEWIJCKSZ, Willem
Amsterdam,: Cornelis Nicolaus,, 1598.. Tall quarto, with a total of 49 inset engravings (including 7 maps), 12 pages featuring woodcut coastal profiles, bound without the plate depicting a bazaar as usual; generally an excellent copy in modern red half morocco by Sangorski & Sutcliffe, spine gilt, small mark to edge of front board. First Latin edition: the first published account of the first Dutch trading fleet to the East Indies.This account was written by Lodewijcksz, who sailed under Cornelius de Houtman and Pieter Dirckz on their pioneering trading voyage to South-east Asia in 1595-7, an expedition which saw them trade at the great pepper port of Bantam, quite close to where Batavia was later founded, as well as providing first-hand information about the north coast of Java, Sunda Strait, and Bali.This strategic push ultimately meant that the theories about a Great Southern Land would be tested against the reality of the Australian coast, so it is fitting that the world map on the title-page still carries the last vestiges of Marco Polo, the coastline marked "Beach", "Lucach", and "Maletur". 'Lodewijcksz depicts the island of Bali in recognizable form for the first time, both on the general map and on a separate map of the island in his book.' The crew was so delighted with the island that they wanted to call it "New Holland" (Su·rez, Early Mapping of Southeast Asia, p. 183).The trading fleet of de Houtman and Dirckz comprised four ships, three of which returned to the Netherlands in 1597.

HAKLUYT, Richard
London,: George Bishop, 1598 -, 1600.. Three volumes in two, folio, woodcut historiated and decorative initials and head- and tail-pieces; a little staining or dust-soiling, last leaf of the first volume the worst affected; small hole through text on penultimate leaf in the same volume; a most attractive set in early 19th-century English blue straight-grain morocco, spines panelled in gilt between raised bands incorporating anchor devices, sides panelled in blind and gilt, all edges gilt, rose-pink silk flyleaves and doublures within blue morocco outer borders; a really handsome set. One of the classics of travel literature and the first English collection of voyages; Hakluyt's collection will always be the primary source for the history of early English exploration, as well as one of the gems of Elizabethan letters.Hakluyt himself was the first lecturer on modern geography and one of the leading spirits of Elizabethan maritime expansion (PMM). The work is devoted to American discoveries and the British colonisation of America, and although published a few years before the Dutch voyage of the Duyfken to the west coast of Cape York in 1605, it is significant that by the time of this revised second edition, Hakluyt was able to include the first tentative forays of the English into the South Seas, whether round Cape Horn or through the Straits of Magellan. As a result, Hakluyt's book represents the pinnacle of Elizabethan geography, but is also among the earliest published works on British expansion into the Pacific."It is difficult to overrate the importance and value of this … [Click Below for Full Description]

Antwerp,: Plantin, 1598.. Engraved map, 350 x 495 mm., original hand-colouring, fine and framed. One of the earliest maps of South East Asia: part of 'Terra Australis Incognita' is shown emerging from the south. This map was published by Plantin in Theatre de l'Univers (Antwerp, 1598) a French-language edition of the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, which is commonly regarded as the first atlas ever to appear.In 1570, Abraham Ortelius published his magnificent Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, which at the time was the most expensive book ever printed. This was the first time that maps of standard size and format had been published in the one atlas. The general cartography of the map is probably based on Mercator's 1569 world map.Although the Dutch did not start serious exploration in the Indies until 1595, the accuracy of this map is testimony to Ortelius's knowledge of secret Portuguese and Spanish information, usually impossible to extract for outsiders. The northern tip of "pars continentis Australis" which is shown emerging just below Java is named "Beach" - this name appears in a number of maps and resulted from information supposedly given to Marco Polo: 'placing these countries beyond Java is the result of a misinterpretation of Marco Polo's description of them. Both Beach and Locach are names resulting from copyists' corruptions of Polo's Locac (Locac-Locach-Boeach-Beach) actually Indo-China' (Perry, The Discovery of Australia, p. 22).The present map was published the same year as Ortelius' death in 1598. Any sixteenth-century edition of this famous map is now very scarce: by 1598, … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bound in 17th c morocco with unidentified armorial on covers and title gilt on spine ('Republique des Suisses'). [Bound first:] SIMLER, Josias. / GOULART, Simon, tr. La Republique des Suisses. [Genève], Gabrel Cartier, 1598. 8vo., (8) ff., 301 (1) pp., (8) ff., 1 integral blank. Rare first French edition of Lopez de Gomara's account of the Conquest of Mexico (first Spanish, 1552). Banned immediately in its native language for its elevation of Cortes's importance above that of the Emperor, Gomara's account nevertheless became wildly popular in neighboring countries. The present distinctly polemical translation was among the first pro-Spanish accounts of the Conquest available to the French-speaking public, and was published as a marked riposte to other contemporary anti-Catholic translations and commentaries by Huguenots including Chauveton (1579) and Chassanion (1581). According to these Protestant translations of Spanish chroniclers such as Gonzalez Ferdinand de Oviedo, the fierce native resistance to the Conquistadors - often embodied in brutal attacks on Spanish clergymen - was evidently divine retribution; syphilis, thought to have emerged in the New World, was another clear aspect of this curse on the 'fornicating Spanish' (Lestringant, p. 470). Guillaume de Breton's translation of Gomara, in contrast, emphasizes the heroic nature of the Conquest under the leadership of the formi … [Click Below for Full Description]

LINSCHOTEN, Jan Huyghen van
London,: John Wolfe,, 1598.. Small folio, with a total of 39 folding maps and plates, comprising the 12 required for this edition and an additional 27 plates from the original Dutch edition, with a further four small maps in the text; early shoulder-notes in ink throughout, many of them corresponding with a page of subject index in manuscript in the same early hand bound in at the end of the volume to follow the printed index; a few spots and marks, some restoration at margins; just three maps cut close by binder at left margin; overall a very good copy in contemporary calf, gilt spine rubbed, brown leather label. One of the great early illustrated travel books: the rare and important first edition in English of the major source for any history of voyaging to the East Indies, and inevitably towards Australia.The most significant description of the East Indies in the Age of Discovery, this was essentially the work which launched full-scale trade to Asia by the Dutch and the English. Together with Richard Hakluyt's anthology, it was also the most important collection of voyages and travels in English to appear during the 16th century. It was in fact the suggestion of the great English voyage chronicler Hakluyt himself that led to the publication of this English translation, based on the Dutch edition of 1596.Like many voyage observers, Linschoten had started out as a reporting employee of one of the great trading or financial houses, in this case the house of Fugger, the Augsburg-based bankers who dominated the finances of sixteenth-century Europe. Linschoten travelled to Goa … [Click Below for Full Description]

Abraham ORTELIUS (1528 - 1598)
carta geografica-storica raffigurante le l'oceano Indiano dalle coste orientali dell'Africa sino alle Indie Orientali. Inserito in un cartiglio posto in basso al centro particolare del Mediterraneo orientale. Tratta dal "Parergon" of "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum", edizione latina del 1603. .Van den Broecke 224. Historical map of the Indian Ocean, from the northeastern coast of Africa up to the East Indies, with an inset cartouche showing the eastern Mediteranean sea. King Hanno from Carthago is supposed to have been the first to sail around the continent of Africa and to reach the Arabian sea. Incidentally, he was also the first person to tame a lion, as related by Plinius, Xenophon and Solinus. These authors based themselves on Hanno's writings, as translated by Baptista Ramusio and Conradus C. Gesnerus. An inset of Hyperbporey has been added, as Ortelius puts it "for better beautifying this map", and to remind the reader that in spite of all their exertions, a passage to the Far East via the North Pole has not yet been found by the English or the Dutch. Taken from the "Parergon" of the "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum", latin edition of 1603. Van den Broecke 224. Anversa Antwerpen 465 360

La prima carta dell?Elba è del Lafrery, a cui si ispirarono il Bertelli nel 1568 ed il Camocio subito dopo.

Giovanni Antonio MAGINI (1555 - 1617)
La carta deriva da quella pubblicata nel 1557 dal Valvassori e da quella edita nel 1570 da Donato Bertelli. Incisa da Arnoldo Arnoldi, la carta è tratta da "L'Italia" a cura di Fabio Magini, edito a Bologna per la prima volta nel 1620. Il grande sforzo cartografico del Magini venne dato alla luce, postumo a causa della prematura morte nel 1617, da suo figlio Fabio, che nel 1620 pubblicò in Bologna l?atlante ?L?Italia?. Composto da un breve testo descrittivo di sole 24 carte, l?opera è corredata di 61 carte geografiche della penisola, e costituisce il primo esempio di atlante italiano. Nonostante sia pubblicata postuma, l?opera è per intero di mano del Magini, che iniziò la realizzazione delle carte nel 1594 circa, dando alla luce per prima nel 1595 la carta del territorio di Bologna. Tutte le carte vennero alle stampe quindi prima del 1620, nelle loro stesure provvisorie, che successivamente furono corrette ed aggiornate per l?edizione definitiva. Tali prove sono rarissime, talvolta reperibili sul mercato, e presentano differenze sostanziali con quelle poi incluse nell?atlante. Per la realizzazione delle lastre il Magini si servì di due dei più famosi intagliatori dell?epoca; il belga Arnorldo Arnoldi e l?inglese Benjamin Wright. L?importanza di questo lavoro del Magini è notevolissima, come pure l?influenza sulla cartografia della penisola per i prossimo due secoli. Difatti, da Ortelius ai principali cartografi ed editori olandesi, tutta la cartografia della penisola è tratta dal lavoro dell?astronomo padovano.

Carta geografica tratta da L'Italia a cura di Fabio Magini, edito a Bologna tra il 1620 ed il 1640. La carta del territorio bergamasco del Magini deriva in tutto e per tutto dal disegno a penna di Giulio Sorte eseguito nel 1575, parziale copia della carte realizzata dal padre Cristoforo Sorte, del quale si sono perse le notizie. La grande carta del Sorte, commissionatagli dal doge di Venezia, riguardava tutto il Dominio Veneto; la copia del figlio Giulio del territorio di Bergamo differisce in diversi particolari dalla carta del Magini, il che lascia presupporre che questi in realtà si ispirò direttamente al particolare della grande carta del Dominio Veneto. Lieve gora nei margini, nel complesso in ottimo stato di conservazione. Dimensioni: 465x350. Geographic map, taken from "L'Italia" edited by Fabio Magini, printed in Bologna between 1620 and 1640. This map derives entirely from a pen-and-ink drawing that Giulio Sorte realized in 1575, a sort of copy of a previous map realized by his father Cristoforo Sorte, nowadays lost. The great map had been commissioned to C. Sorte by the Doge of Venice, it had to depict the whole Venetian dominion. The copy of his son is about the territory of Bergamo and it differs from Magini's in some details. Light water spot on the margins, otherwise in goosd condition. Bologna Bologna Almagià pagg. 40/42.
