ORTELIUS ABRAHAM
1600. Incisione in rame, mm 360x472, colore originale d'epoca, testo latino al verso.Decorativa carta storica di Cipro contornata da nove piccole mappe delle isole greche (Eubea al centro, Dilos e Rinia, Chios, Ikaria, Rodi ( a sin.) e Samo, Kos, Lesbos, Lemnos (a destra). Tratta dal "Parergon" che Ortelio pubblicò come integrazione del "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum" il primo atlante moderno, comprendente carte di tutte le zone del mondo; la geniale intuizione di Ortels, latinizzato successivamente, fu appunto questa: prima d'allora la produzione cartografica era stata irregolare, locale a livello di produzione ed i pochi atlanti, i cosiddetti "Atlanti Lafreriani" erano costituiti su richiesta raccogliendo carte di alcune zone, ignorando le altre. Ortelius riunì in un unico corpus la produzione cartografica eterogenea del periodo, costituendo la base per un'impresa editoriale di enorme successo, pubblicata dal 1570 al 1612. Copper engraving, mm 360x472, original color, latin text on verso. Ten maps on one plate. Showing Rinia and Dilos, Nicaria, Euboea, Samos, Keos (near Euboea), Rhodus, Chios, Cyprus, Lesbos, Lemnos.From "Parergon", the first ever published historical atlas thought by Ortelius to be an enlargement of his "Theatrum Orbis Terraum" the first modern atlas with maps of the whole world.

GILBERT, William.
London: Peter Short, 1600. First edition of "the first major English scientific treatise based on experimental methods of research. Gilbert was chiefly concerned with magnetism; but as a digression he discusses in his second book the attractive effect of amber (electrum), and thus may be regarded as the founder of electrical science. He coined the terms 'electricity,' 'electric force' and 'electric attraction.' His 'versorium', a short needle balanced on a sharp point to enable it to move freely, is the first instrument designed for the study of electrical phenomena, serving both as an electroscope and electrometer. He contended that the earth was one great magnet; he distinguished magnetic mass from weight; and he worked on the application of terrestrial magnetism to navigation. Gilbert's book influenced Kepler, Bacon, Boyle, Newton and, in particular, Galileo, who used his theories [in the Dialogo] to support his own proof of the correctness of the findings of Copernicus in cosmology" (PMM). "Gilbert provided the only fully developed theory ... and the first comprehensive discussion of magnetism since the thirteenth century Letter on the Magnet of Peter Peregrinus" (DSB). Although this book does appear with some regularity on the market, copies such as ours in fine condition and in untouched contemporary bindings are rare. "During the fifteenth century the widespread interest in navigation had focused much attention on the compass. Since at that time the orientation of the magnetic needle was explained by an alignment of the magnetic poles with the poles of the celestial … [Click Below for Full Description]

1600. Rare contemporary and official manuscript copy of an apparently unrecorded group of Peru Royal Ordinances for the year 1600 regarding healthcare for the Indians. It concerns the functioning of Hospital de Santa Ana which as explained by Adam Warren, "Lima's first archbishop, Friar Jéronimo de Loayza, founded the city's Hospital of Santa in 1549 to provide what José Maria Córdova y Urrutia described as treatment for the wretched Indians who die like animals in the fields and in the streets.", (Medicine and Politics in Colonial Peru, University of Pittsburg Press 2010). The document provides among others the names of the officials involved in the elaboration of the Ordinances by order of the viceroy Luis de Velasco (1534-1617). It also explains the historical background and describes in detail five ordinances. The first ordinance changes the number of infirmaries in the hospital from seven to eight... The fifth ordinance concerns seemingly the hospital decision making process by the clergy. Excerpts of the Spanish text as following (subject to spelling errors): "En la Ciudad De los Reyes del Piru en veinte y nueve dias del mês de Enero de mill y seis centos años. " El Padre Francisco de Vitoria Rector del noviciado de Sa. Josphe de la Compania de Jesus.

The top cap is missing at 2/3, a corner door no longer leather part borders leather lacks some gaps at the location of nerves. Gabriel Naude (1600-1653) was born in Paris. He was a doctor but rather a philosopher because he had also studied literature and philosophy, all his books is the only apology that we remained. He was successively attached to Cardinal Barberini, Cardinal Mazarin (he who will collect the books from the library of Mazarin), Cardinal Richelieu and the Queen Christine, librarian also, apart from the famous' Advis for establish a library. This is an heir of humanism which advocates a return to a strict rationalism, this book is the application, autograph dedication of the author it must exercise judgment and examine the causes and effects before condemning. Many valuable information found on the accusations and practices of many men, Gallien, Raymond Lully, Albertus Magnus, Thomas Aquinas, along with a defense of the charges that were brought against these men, Naude dismantles beliefs about demons, the philosopher's stone and what they cover. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

Georgette De Montenay
Not Stated, 1600. A very scarce edition of Georgette de Montenay's 'Emblemes ou Devises Chrestiennes'. 'Emblemes' contains one-hundred emblems, which are typically morals or poems accompanied by illustrations, a form of religious text that was very popular during the 16th and 17th centuries. Montenay's 'Emblemes' are mostly Protestant in their views. An undated copy. ESTC and Copac only have records of the 1619 polygot edition, which differs to this copy in pagination and translation content. The 1619 edition is ESTC record no. S94206. This copy is lacking the title page (A1) and leaves F3 and F4. 1619 edition has a preface and a riddle to the rear, of which this copy is potentially lacking but there is no evidence to the gatherings that this printing had the preface. When collated using the catch-words this copy is lacking pages one, four, twenty-eight, twenty-nine, seventy-four, seventy-eight, seventy-nine, eighty, eighty-one, eighty-two, eighty-five, eighty-six, eighty-nine, ninety-five, and ninety-six. Closed tears to the fore edge of pages twenty, forty, and forty-one. It's unclear when the 'Emblemes' were first published, as there's been evidence of copies existing as early as 1561, despite it being originally thought to have appeared in publication in 1571. It is possible that, due to the religious turmoil at the time, the publication was delayed. The turmoil in question was the French Wars of Religion between the Roman Catholics and Huguenots between 1562 and 1598. Montenay herself was of the Reformed/Calvinist faith.

GILBERT, William.
Peter Short, London, 1600. First edition of "the first major English scientific treatise based on experimental methods of research. Gilbert was chiefly concerned with magnetism; but as a digression he discusses in his second book the attractive effect of amber (electrum), and thus may be regarded as the founder of electrical science. He coined the terms ‘electricity,’ ‘electric force’ and ‘electric attraction.’ His ‘versorium’, a short needle balanced on a sharp point to enable it to move freely, is the first instrument designed for the study of electrical phenomena, serving both as an electroscope and electrometer. He contended that the earth was one great magnet; he distinguished magnetic mass from weight; and he worked on the application of terrestrial magnetism to navigation. Gilbert’s book influenced Kepler, Bacon, Boyle, Newton and, in particular, Galileo, who used his theories [in the Dialogo] to support his own proof of the correctness of the findings of Copernicus in cosmology" (PMM). "Gilbert provided the only fully developed theory and the first comprehensive discussion of magnetism since the thirteenth century Letter on the Magnet of Peter Peregrinus" (DSB). Although this book does appear with some regularity on the market, copies such as ours in fine condition and in untouched contemporary bindings are rare."During the fifteenth century the widespread interest in navigation had focused much attention on the compass. Since at that time the orientation of the magnetic needle was explained by an alignment of the magnetic poles with the poles of the celestial spher … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Livy] T. Livivs of Padua (trans. Philemon Holland)
London: Adam Islip, 1600. First English Language Edition. Folio (pages 209 x 304 mm), collates [10], 804, 809-1351, 1354-1403, [1, to the reader], [39, index], [1, errata], [1, blank]: lacking preliminary blank, else complete with the typical errors in pagination. With woodcut portraits of Queen Elizabeth and Titus Livius. Bound in early calf with red morocco spine label lettered in gilt. Front board rubbed and spine chipped. Worming at inner margin from title to C5 and again from Aaaaa3 to Ffffff6 mostly not affecting text. Small holes in K3 and Tttt6 barely affecting text. Closed tear at outer margin of Bbbbb4 not affecting text. Overall a very good, clean copy. "Though Livy's research must have been voluminous...his information is often inaccurate, and his facts are sometimes self-contradictory. Yet scientific history was not his primary objective. He wished to hold up to his countrymen the great panorama of their past, to recall to them the glories of their ancestors, and to urge them to abandon their decadent ways. In this sense his aim was similar to that of Virgil in his Aeneid. Livy's style is one of political rhetorical brilliance, and the speeches he puts in the mouths of historical personagesare masterful both as oratory and as character analysis" (Benet). Indeed, the Latin text had been used for over a century to educate Renaissance school boys in effective oratory and was believed to help young men develop into responsible citizens. This first appearance in English made Livy available to a much wider public. ESTC S114001.

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. <br><br>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.

With 3 engraved maps, 13 (instead of 33) views (but 1 torn through, lacking half the view), and 27 costume and portrait woodcuts in the text. Modern vellum with giltstamped spine title, re-using the remains of the original blindstamped 17th century pigskin covers, stamped "IHD" and dated 1602. Marbled endpapers. Very rare first edition of this famous chronicle by the versatile German historian, draughtsman and civil engineer Wilhelm Dilich (or Scheffer, 1571-1650), with descriptions of the principal towns and rulers. The "views and plans appear mostly to have been made from the author's original drawings; the are very cleanly engraved and far superior to the mass-produced town views familiar from the late 16th century" (cf. Apponyi). The present volume lacks a substantial number of the views as compared to the list of plates bound at the end, but includes Kosice, Liptószentmiklós ("St. Nikolaus", wanting the right half), Gyula, Tokaj, Szikszó, Pannonhalma ("Martinsberg"), Zsámbék, Hatvan, Timisoara and others.

Petrus Short, Londini (London), United Kingdom. quarter vellum, paste paper coverd boards, vellum tips, red and black leather spine label, gilt lettering on spine. [xvi], 240 pages. First edition. Gilbert's (1544-1603) De Magnete is "a remarkable work in the history of scientific discovery. It cost the author 18 years of investigation and experiment. Large marginal asterisks mark what he considered great discoveries, and small asterisks minor ones. There are 21 of the former and 178 of the later. Gilbert shows that a freely suspended magnet is controlled by the earth and not, as supposed, by extra-terrestrial influences. his magnetic theory enabled him to explain the behavior of the compass-needle, the dip-needle, the magnetic condition of vertical masses of iron, and the magnetic properties of heated iron bars when allowed to cool while lying in the magnetic meridian. Gilbert is chary of prose and wrathful in denunciation; he was a staunch Coperican, and warm friend of Kepler and Galileo." [Wheeler Gift.] ". It is with Gilbert, who was physician to Queen Elizabeth I, that the modern development of electricity and magnetism really starts. His book On the Magnet was the first major English scientific treatise based on experimental methods of research. He coined the terms "electricity," "electric force," and "electric attraction". He contended that the earth was one great magnet; he distinguished magnetic mass from weight; and he worked on the application of terrestrial magnetism to navigation."

Wolfgang Richter for Nicolaus Bass / Nicolai Bassaei, Francofurti / Frankfurt. Hardcover. 2 Volumes in 1. Squat, thick Octavo (approx. 6.5 x 5.75 inches). Vol. I; [xvi], 806pp [xxxviii - Index & colophon], Vol. II; [ii blank] + [viii], 704pp [xxiv - Index & colophon]. Contemporary blindstamped pigskin over wooden boards, brass clasps (one lacking). Each volume with separate title page. Numerous woodcut initials, head and tail pieces throughout. The rare and important fourth Frankfurt edition of the "Malleus Maleficarum," one of the most infamous books in history which became known as the "Bible of witch-hunting." The work was of course widely referred to throughout the European witch trials, and this particular edition was issued at a time when the witch-hunts in France, Germany, and Switzerland were still in full swing, and there is no doubt that copies of this printing helped seal the fate of many of the unfortunate accused. This 1600 edition included not just the "Malleus Maleficarum" but also a collection of other significant demonological texts. The first volume comprises the "Malleus Maleficarum" itself, plus extracts from the "Formicarius" of Johannes Nider (originally the second book ever printed to discuss witchcraft, along with discussions of ghosts, apparitions, devils, etc.). The second volume contains nine demonological treatises: Bernard Basin, "De artibus magicis ac magorum malificiis"; Ulrich Molitor, "Dialogum de lamiis et pytonicis muliéribus"; Girolamo Menghi, "Flagellum Daemonum"; John Gerson, "De probatione Spirituum"; Thomas Murner, "De Pythonico contr … [Click Below for Full Description]

Later red morocco, bound by Riviere, covers panelled in gilt, spine lettered in gilt, marbled endpapers, gilt edges. Housed in a red chemise and red morocco backed box. Provenance: Henrick Cunliffe (bookplate); Arthur Howard Thompson (bookplate) Rare first edition: a noted early English practical contribution to angling and horticultural literature. Taverner's only publication, based on his experiments in stocking a fish pond and cultivating apples and pears. "Good Reader," Taverner begins, "in seeking to shun that monster idleness, and having a desire by all honest means possible, to benefit this my native countrie of England, and finding my abilitie otherwise insufficient to performe the same, I have thought good to set down some experiments that my selfe have had concerning fish and fruite." Taverner was the son of Roger Taverner, surveyor general of the King's woods south of the Trent, and he succeeded his father to that position. Much of his work is devoted to the making of fish-ponds, the breeding of fish, and the best baits for catching them, but the second part provides directions for planting orchards and cultivating fruit trees. The work is very rare and unknown to much of the usual horticultural literature, including Henrey, Hunt, Oak Spring Pomona, etc. STC records but four known copies (not including the present).

Edition Originale (et seule) de ce poème mystique anonyme où dialoguent sur le personnage de Sylvie (peut-être imaginaire, symbolisant la fusion de l'âme dans l'absolu de l'amour de Dieu ?), "Célize" et "Caritte", ses sœurs. Ce poème fut peut-être inspirée par la figure féminine de Marie Félicie Orisini, duchesse de Montmorency (1600-1666), surnommée Sylvie, célèbre pour la vie mystique, détachée du monde, où elle s'était enfermée après l'exécution de son mari par Richelieu en 1632. Dans sa jeunesse, sa beauté avait été chantée par Théophile de Viau et par Jean de Mairet qui composa pour elle deux tragi-comédies pastorales: "La Sylvie" (1628) et "La Silvanire, ou la morte-vive" (1631). La "Maison de Sylvie" dans le parc du château de Chantilly, bâtie pour elle par son mari Henri II de Montmorency, existe toujours. Cet ouvrage ne semble pas décrit. Il manque aux bibliothèqueds américaines et en France seule la bibliothèque de l'Arsenal en garde un exemplaire. Déchirure sans perte à l'angle d'un feuillet, taches sur quelques feuillets.

Al-Wardi, Siraj al-Din 'Umar ibn.
[Ottoman provinces, ca 1600]. Small folio (215 x 285 mm). Arabic and Ottoman Turkish manuscript on paper, 246 ff. 21 lines of black naskh per page (text area 23 x 13 cm), with section titles in red; fol. 1r with an elaborately calligraphed title in black and red, ff. 1v-2r with red, green and gilt frames; ff. 2v-3r with an illuminated world map and fol. 27r with a coloured, marginal illustration of a nilometer in cross-section, and f. 51v with a diagram of the Ka'aba in red and black. Contemporary morocco binding with fore-edge flap, gilt-tooled and blind-stamped, with manuscript Arabic title to lower edge. Pink-dyed European endpapers watermarked with a six-point star and the letters AF. 19th-c. linen pasted over the original binding. An unusually large and attractive copy of the 15th-century cosmographical compilation most often ascribed to Siraj al-Din 'Umar ibn al-Wardi. His authorship and the manner of the text's composition remain a subject of scholarly research, but it was a popular text in the Ottoman world, much copied, and translated into Turkish repeatedly. Its popularity has led to a tangled series of recensions, with different copies incorporating various different elements from the text.
