Giovanni Antonio MAGINI (1555 - 1617)
Carta geografica tratta da "L'Italia" a cura di Fabio Magini, edito a Bologna tra il 1620 ed il 1640. la carta dello Stato veneto in generale rappresenta l?insieme delle nozioni raccolte per tutte le altre tredici carte dei territori che componevano lo stato, ad eccezione del territorio di Trento. La carta presenta diverse analogie con quella realizzata dal Mercator nel 1589. "This map is a compendium of a set of thirteen more detailed ones which represent the territories of the Republic of Venice, with the exception of of the town of Trento and the areas surrounding it. It is similar to Mercator's 1589 map. Engraved by Arnoldo Arnoldi. In very good conditions.-Italy according to Magini: a cartographical model for posterity- Giovanni Antonio Magini was born in Padua in 1555, dedicating himself to the study of astronomy from an early age. In 1588 the Senate of Bologna appointed him Lecturer of Astronomy at the local university, choosing him instead of Galileo Galilei. His friendship with the Duke of Mantua, Vincenzo Gonzaga, helped Magini in his quest to obtain cartographical material for map-making from the various sovereigns ruling the different italian states at that time. Because of Magini's early death in 1617 this effort was made known by his son Fabio when he published the atlas ""L'Italia"" in Bologna in 1620. This is the first example of an italian atlas and is made up of 24 pages of descriptive text and 61 maps of the italian peninsula. Although this work was published posthumously, it can be entirely ascribed to Magini. He began drawing this maps around 1594, with … [Click Below for Full Description]

HEYTESBURY, William.
Extremely rare first edition of most of the works of Heytesbury, one of the Oxford Calculators of Merton College, including his highly important <i>Regule solvendi sophismata</i>, which certainly influenced Thomas Harriot in his work on free fall, and probably influenced Galileo's discussion of this problem in the <i>Discorsi</i> (see below). Its discussion of limiting processes and notions of infinity foreshadow in a remarkable way the approach taken by modern pure mathematicians. "The conclusions of the <i>Regule</i> with regard to limits and aggregates bear a resemblance to the work of the nineteenth-century mathematicians Cauchy and Dedekind on the logical foundations of the calculus" (Wilson, p. 149).<br/><br/> The <i>Regule</i> represents "the high point of the Merton logical and mathematical discussion of physical problems. This whole discussion, in which Heytesbury played such a prominent part, was of considerable influence throughout Europe from about 1350 to the early years of the sixteenth century. On the side of kinematics - the analysis of movement in terms of distance and time - Heytesbury's treatise was particularly important and influential. We can single out a few of its achievements: (1) In it Heytesbury gave a clear-cut definition of uniform acceleration as a movement in which equal increments of velocity are acquired in equal periods of time. (2) He also gave an analysis (certainly one of the earliest) and definition of instantaneous velocity... (3) Heytesbury's statement of the so-called Merton College mean-speed law [which] held that a uniform accelera … [Click Below for Full Description]

CABEO, Niccolo.
The first Italian book on magnetism and electricity, and only the second to be published on these subjects, the <i>De Magnate</i> (London, 1600) by William Gilbert being the first. The important discovery of electrical repulsion is here first announced (p. 194), and this phenomenon was later systematically investigated by Otto von Guericke in his <i>Experimenta Nova</i> (Amsterdam, 1672). Electrical repulsion 'seems to have been noticed incidentally by Cabeus, who ... describes how filings attracted by exhited amber sometimes recoiled to a distance of several inches after making contact' (Wolf, I, 303). Cabeo (1585-1650) taught mathematics and theology in Parma for many years and later settled in Genoa, where he taught mathematics. This work of some ... describes many experiments on the possibility of telegraphic communication by means of magnetized neddles and gives the first picture of the sympathetic telegraph, which fancifully anticipates the actual telegraph." (Neville). Jesuit Science in the Age of Galileo 14. There are three issues (no priority) of this book: the first issue has a royal coat-of-arms at the head of the title; the second issue has the coat-of-arms replaced by the Jesuit emblem [this copy]; and the third was produced for export to Germany and has an added printed title with a Cologne imprint.

Brunet,I,1094 - Durling,628 - Wellcome,I,965. ?Federico Bonaventura (1555-1602), di nobile famiglia urbinate, si cimentò in lavori di erudizione su antichi testi di argomento astronomico e meteorologico, di pronostici astrologici, di contese cavalleresche..

Stampata a Urbino da Ragusio nel 1600, rimessa in circolazione dal Ciotti a Venezia sotto un frontespizio fittizio nel 1602 e a Francoforte nel 1612, l?opera ebbe una qualche diffusione per i quesiti medici, giuridici e astrologici che affrontava.. Era talmente smisurata che il Bonaventura si sentì in obbligo di stenderne un "Compendium" che offerse al duca il 4 maggio 1600 e che il tipografo stampò in calce all?immane tomo per comodo de? lettori sbrigativi?.

Important early map of St. Augustine, showing the raid of Sir Francis Drake during his West Indian voyage of 1585-86. The image is based upon Baptista Boazio's 1588 plan of St. Augustine, which is almost impossible to locate. This is therefore the first realistically accessible plan of St Augustine.

FLORIMI, MATTEO.
Matteo Florimi, Siena, 1600 circa. Incisione in rame all'acquaforte, b/n, cm 40,3 x 53,3 (alla lastra) pi? margini. Cartigli in alto, a destra e a sinistra del titolo; in basso, legenda a 128 voci. Splendida veduta della citt? a volo d'uccello. Di origini calabresi, allievo di Antonio Lafrery e Claudio Duchetti, il Florimi si trasfer? a Siena intorno al 1580, dove inizi? la sua fiorente attivit? di commerciante di stampe e libri, nonch? di editore, fino al 1612. A Siena pubblic? un grande numero di mappe e di soggetti religiosi, e si avvalse dell'aiuto di incisori del calibro di Agostino Carracci, Cornelis Galle, Pietre de Jode e Thomassin; fu in stretto contatto soprattutto con Francesco Vanni. Per le caratteristiche peculiari delle opere del Florimi e per la loro rarit?, queste vengono classificate tra le carte di scuola lafreriana. Esemplare con alcuni difetti ai margini (peraltro stretti) ma in bella impressione e in discreto stato di conservazione.

ARISTOTE [ARISTOTLE, ARISTOTELES] + PLATON [PLATO]. - [FIRST FULL FRENCH TRANSLATIONS OF ARISTOTLE'S POLITICS & PLATO'S REPUBLIC]
Paris, Chez Ambroise Drouart, 1600. Folio. Bound in one contemporary full limp vellum binding with a bit of spotting and soiling. Contemporary owner's name torn out of top margin of first title-page. Faint damp stain to two first leaves and a light dampstain to last ab. 40 leaves of the Plato, getting heavier on the last five index-leaves. A bit of occasional minor light brownspotting. All in all a very attractive copy, with good margins. Roman and Italic letter, and some Greek. Title-pages printed in red and black and with large woodcut printer's devices. Woodcut head- and tail-pieces and numerous beautiful woodcut initials. (24), 499, (41, -tables) pp. + (8), 420, (10, -table) pp. ¶ Extremely scarce first editions of the important first complete French translations of the Politics of Aristotle and the Republic of Plato. We have not been able to locate any earlier printings of the two works in any bibliographies, nor have we been able to find any in the library databases, but it seems that Bibliothèque nationale du France owns a copy of at least the Aristotle with a title-page stating 1599, also Paris by Drouart. We thus assume that this is the same printing, but with a variant title-page. Both of these monumental works are translated by Louis Le Roy (or Leroy), the great classical scholar, and have his learned an important commentaries, including additions and amendments by Louis Morel, who published the work with Drouart. For many many years this first complete translation in to French was considered by far the best and it exercised a tremendous influence on 17th centur … [Click Below for Full Description]

L6 verso contains Short's woodcut device and colophon dated 1600. Twentieth century blind ruled calf. Faint ink stains to the fore edge of some leaves and a small candle burn to the blank foot of D7. A very good copy. ESTC S 2504 with 2 locations in UK and 2 in USA. It is sometimes found bound with two other pseudo-Augustinian devotional works but from the number of separately bound copies of various editions listed by ESTC it must also have been available separately. Thomas Rogers (c.1553-1616) was vicar of Horringer, Suffolk. An active controversialist, he published a number of translations of popular religious texts, the best known being his translation of Thomas Kempis in 1580. He frequently claims that his translations are 'purged from divers superstitious points' or similar wording.

Disbound, housed in a cloth chemise. Small quarto (7 1/8" high).& & Taverner's observations of nymphs and maturing flies, and their relationship to fishing, were ahead of Walton, Markham, Barker and others writing 50 years or more later. Entomological observations the likes of Taverner's weren't to appear in print until Cotton's additions to The Compleat Angler in 1676. & & His work on aquaculture is the first known comprehensive paper on the management of carp, bream, trench, and perch in ponds (not to mention eels, the breeding of which he deems "very uncertain and unknown", though he discusses them at length). The section on fruit trees, like the work as a whole, is remarkable for its reliance on first hand experience rather than classical authors.& & Bibliotheca Piscatoria 205, Graesse 42 Size: Quarto (4to).

1600. Hardcover. Very Good. Red decorative cloth over boards, royal folio (13-7/8 x 9-3/4 inches [35.3 x 24.7 cm]) containing well over 100 feet (54 feet each side) of mid 19th to early 20th century Japanese prints with 40 singles, 3 diptychs, and 28 triptychs in an ORI EHON (ORI - folding; E - picture; HON - book). With a good selection of different artists such as Yoshitoshi - Moonlight on the Ruin and a variety of Kabuki actors also being well represented along with some early Manga. Print colors are bright and unfaded with most showing good register, occasional offsetting and minor soil, many of the prints have had their margins trimmed and a few prints noted with tiny amount of insect damage under magnification. Please inquire for a complete set of photos and/or a detailed description of individual prints. "ehon - or 'picture books,' in Japanese. ... are one of the true glories of Japanese art but are little known today, even in Japan, because of their great rarity ... their breathtaking exuberance, sophisticated artistry, sensuality, unparalleled originality, intellectual gravity, playful spirit, and lightness of touch.

Created by artists and craftsmen, most ehon also feature essays, poems, or other texts written in beautiful, distinctive calligraphy.

GILBERT, William
Woodcut printer's device on title, Gilbert's woodcut coat of arms on verso, numerous woodcut diagrams & illus. in the text, & one folding woodcut plate (one fold with a careful repair). 8 p.l. 240 pp. Folio, cont. limp vellum (some occasional spotting, a few unimportant dampstains), ties gone. London: P. Short, 1600. First edition, and a very fine and fresh copy, of the first major English scientific treatise based on experimental methods of research and the foundation work of magnetism and electrical science. Gilbert uses here for the first time the terms "electricity," "electric force," and "electric attraction." Book I "deals with the history of magnetism from the earliest legends about the lodestone to the facts and theories known to Gilbert's contemporaries...In the last chapter of book I, Gilbert introduced his new basic idea which was to explain all terrestrial magnetic phenomena: his postulate that the earth is a giant lodestone and thus had magnetic properties...The remaining five books of the De magnete are concerned with the five magnetic movements: coition, direction, variation, declination, and revolution. Before he began his discussion of coition, however, Gilbert carefully distinguished the attraction due to the amber effect from that caused by the lodestone. This section, chapter 2 of book II, established the study of the amber effect as a discipline separate from that of magnetic phenomena, introduced the vocabulary of electrics, and is the basis for Gilbert's place in the history of electricity."-D.S.B., V, p. 397.

(QUR'AN)
Western Iran or Ottoman Turkey: Signed by 'Abd al-Nahif al-Raji, Circa 1600. Arabic and Persian manuscript (36.8 x 24 cm) on thin cream paper with 10 alternating lines of fine naskh and nasta'liq script in black ink per page, illuminated double page frontispiece in blue, black, gold and other colours, surah headings in red muhaqqaq script, verse endings in gold illuminated rosettes, gilt stamped binding. Housed in a brown flat back cloth solander box. Safavid and Ottoman manuscript illumination was highly eclectic in the sixteenth and seventeenth century, reflecting the interactions of artists from all over the Islamic world. The illumination in this Qur'an shows the strong influence of Eastern Iranian traditions, an attested feature of a group of Ottoman manuscripts dating from c. 1520-50 (see in particular J. M. Rogers & R. M. Ward, Suleyman the Magnificent, London, 1988, cat. no. 19, p. 73). This influence is particularly visible in the lavish frontispiece of the present Qur'an, where the illuminated panels with black borders on both sides of the text and the large blue and gold hasps projecting into the margins from the centre of the smooth border are reminiscent of Herati and Bukharan work of the sixteenth century. The style of illumination, decoration and calligraphy in this manuscript demonstrates the frequent movement of artists between artistic centres in northern Persia and the Ottoman Empire. Certain features, however, particularly the lotus-shaped flowers in the gold cartouches of the frontispiece, and the colour palette of red, pale green, mauve … [Click Below for Full Description]

Rom, 27. Februar [1600].. Ital. Handschrift auf Papier, 1 S. auf 1 Bl., ca. 27,8 x 20,5 cm. An den Faltstellen wasserrandig, kleinere Löcher durch Tintenfraß.. Als römischer Großinquisitor an den Bischof von Civita Castellana [Andrea Longo (1582-1607)], Da die Inquisition erfahren habe, dass Orinthio Acquarelli aus Rieti im Haus des Pompeo Rossi an einem Freitag Fleisch verzehrt habe, wird der Bischof angewiesen, die Beweisgrundlagen vor Ort zu überprüfen. - Santorio war Berater mehrer Päpste, eifriger Gegenreformator, Großinquisitor und Großpönitentiar. Der sehr einflussreiche Kardinal, der selbst fast Papst geworden wäre, war als Inquisitor gefürchtet: Er leitete u.a. Verfahren gegen Campanella und Heinrich IV. von Frankreich und zeichnete für die Verurteilung des Philosophen Giordano Bruno, der zehn Tage vor diesem Brief als Ketzer verbrannt worden war, verantwortlich. Der hier erwähnte Acquarelli ist aus den Inquisitionsakten als Mithäftling Brunos bekannt. - Santorio unterzeichnet als "Il Cardinale di Santa Severina", nach seinem Erzbistum Santa Severina in Kalabrien. Die Datierung des Briefes "27. Februar 1599" ist als "27. Februar 1600" zu lesen, da es bis ins 17. Jh. in Rom Brauch war, das Jahr zum 25. März zu beginnen.

THYRAEUS PETRUS
Ex officina Mater. Cholini, 1600. In 8° (196x154); carte non num. 8, pagine 486, marca tipogr. al frontespizio. Cartonato settecentesco con titolo manoscritto al dorso. Il gesuita Peter Thyraes di Neuss (1546-1601) fu teologo attivo nel campo della demonologia. Nel 1582 diede alle stampe a Magonza il suo primo libro e nel 1594 pubblicò, oltre alla prima edizione del "Demoniaci, hoc est: de obsessis a spiritibus daemoniorum hominibus, liber unus", il "De variis tam spiritum quam vivorum hominum prodigiosis apparitionibus & nocturnis infestationibus libri tres... ". Questa rara opera è sostanzialmente una edizione ampliata e rivista del "De variis...", anche se si può considerare un'opera a sè stante, considerata la notevole differenza fra le due. E' divisa in due parti: la prima che tratta delle apparizioni di ogni genere di spiriti, la seconda contiene "De Divina.apparitione..". Buon esemplare genuino con usuali forti arrossamento della carta data la carta tedesca del periodo, le prime carte con fine traccia di tarlo al marg. sup. e da pag.107 a 127 e da 371 a 397 al marg. int. inf. Normale lieve usura al cartonato. Non in Adams; Casanatense, Biblioteca magica, 1167; Graesse, Magica, 83.<

VISSCHER, N
Totius Regni Hungariae et adjacentium Regionum TabulaA beautiful, highly detailed map of  southeastern Europe by Nicolas Visscher. Includes regions of Northern Italy (showing the cities Bologna, Padua, and Venice), Bohemia, Austria (showing Vienna), Hungary, Poland, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia, Yugoslavia, Romania, Bulgaria, and the western coast of the Black Sea.Striking, vibrant, original color. An ornamental title cartouche is in the lower left corner. Truly outstanding, original color.The family of Visscher was one of the most distinguished of all seventeenth century cartographical firms, and major figures in the era now considered the Golden Age of Dutch mapmaking.  In the late 1600's, a period of great geographical discovery, Amsterdam was the international center of cartography.  A number of venerable firms, including those established by Blaeu, Jansson, and Hondius competed for the ever-expanding market for maps and atlases.  Despite the intense competition, with maps such as these Nicolas Visscher set standards for exceptional quality that few other firms were able to equal.  Boasting advanced geographical information, fine engraving and coloring, and striking decoration, Visscher's maps are fundamental illustrations of the reasons for Dutch supremacy in mapmaking during the 17th century.        VISSCHER, N    Amsterdam, 1687.533 x  864 mmOriginal color A 7 inch repaired tear is in the lower right section of the map; some discoloration in paper margin.
