Modern half green morocco folding-case. Provenance: Otto Schaefer, his sale Sotheby's November 1995, lot 162. AN EXCEPTIONALLY FINE AND ATTRACTIVE COPY OF THE EXTREMELY RARE SPANISH EDITION OF ORTELIUS'S "THEATRUM ORBIS TERRARUM" The first edition in Spanish, and the first edition of the "Theatrum." published under the imprint of Jan Baptist Vrients, who assumed responsibility for the atlas three years after Ortelius's death. Vrients added several new maps to Ortelius's oeuvre and continued to publish the atlas until his own death in 1612, after which no further editions appeared. This edition of the "Theatrum." was published without the "Parergon" and the "Nomenclator". The world map used in this edition is printed from Ortelius's third and final "Typus orbis terrarium" plate, which greatly improved the delineation of the southwest coastline of South America and depicted the Solomon Islands for the first time. Also included is the landmark map "America Sive Novi Orbis Nova Descrptio" (America, or New World, Newly Described). Ortelius first published his "Theatrum.", arguably the first atlas in the modern sense of the word in 1570, A businessman native to Antwerp, Ortelius complied the best existing maps, re-engraved them on a standardized format, and included them with the text in one volume. Dedicated to Philip III, King of Spain, who in 1602 ordered an 'armada' to sail from Acapulco on the South coast of Mexico to report on the islands of the Pacific Oceans and the "great realm of California". Truusje Goedings, renowned expert in Dutch colouists of the 17th-century writes of this copy: "The de-luxe colouring of this copy of the Spanish edition has remained remarkably fresh and is of very high quality. It was done by one, contemporary hand in a definitely Flemish style, with its overall colouring in rather heavy, warm hues, though somewhat more refined than usual. The plates and maps are heightened with gold, also in the lettering. Moreover, all initials in the text are coloured brightly and with care and variation. This is rare, and accentuates the quality of the colouring. In general coloured copies of the 'Theatrum' had their texts left plain, and if colour was applied to initials or text-decorations, this was mostly done thin and hastily with just one or two colours. The green used for large land surfaces did not turn into a brownish yellow as often in atlases of this period, but remained fresh in many places. Only a brighter hue, apparently a mixture, has been discoloured. A special feature is the lead white used to whiten the white of the paper (to enhance contrast, or as ground for other colours). In some places this has oxidized and turned into grey, f.e. at the upper part of the dedication print on verso title, and in the cartouche on the Africa map. A de-luxe colouring like this was very costly at the time. Plantijn, former publisher of the 'Theatrum', used to ask especially for these copies expert colourist Myncken Liefrincks, head of the Liefrincks printing firm. As she was still the best address at the time, Vrients will have done the same. Plantijn's archives reveal some of her prices. For instance, for a de-luxe colouring of a Spanish Theatrum (ed. 1578, priced uncoloured ca. fl. 20) with adornments in gold and silver she got payed fl. 36,-, almost four times the price of a regular colouring - and almost twice the price of a plain copy. (see on this my article in Kunst in Kaart, exh. Amsterdam The richness of colouring and the carefull overall treatment of this copy suggest it was intended for a wealthy client or for presentation. This Spanish version was Vrients's first edition of the Theatrum after he had bought the plates from Ortelius' heirs, which he dedicated in print to the Spanish king. He certainly had prepared a few copies for presentation to the Spanish court. Where the dedicatee himself in general was presented with a de-luxe binding in leather, one or two of his high-placed favorites who were often also gifted had to do with a little bit less, be it in colour, or in binding (as here might have been the case). Anyhow, the Spanish title and monograms on spine indicate a provenance from an early Spanish owner. Comparison with 2 copies of the same edition held in the Escorial library (see Koeman 31:451, p.212) might bring more light to this".

        Divers ouvrages de mathématique et de physique.Paris: L'Imprimerie Royale, 1693.

      First edition of this superb collection of thirty-one treatises by the leading scientists of seventeenth-century France, all but one of which are published here for the first time.<br/><br/> There are nine treatises by Gilles Personne de Roberval (1602-75), comprising the principal corpus of his published works. Of particular importance is his Traité des indivisibles, composed around the same time as Cavalieri's Geometria (1635) but independent of it and published here for the first time. "Roberval was one of the leading proponents of the geometry of infinitesimals, which he claimed to have taken directly from Archimedes, without having known of the work of Cavalieri. Moreover, in supposing that the constituent elements of a figure possess the same dimensions as the figure itself, Roberval came closer to the integral calculus than did Cavalieri... The numerous results that he obtained in this area are collected in the Divers Ouvrages, under the title of Traité des indivisibles... The most famous of his works in this domain concerns the cycloid" (DSB XI.487). The volume also contains Roberval's foundation work on kinematic geometry, and his treatise on the composition of movements. "On account of his method of 'composition of movements' Roberval may be called the founder of kinematic geometry. This construction has three applications - the fundamental and most famous being the construction of tangents..." (ibid.).<br/><br/> The collection also contains four treatises by the accomplished amateur mathematician Bernard Frenicle de Bessy (ca. 1605-75), a close correspondent of Fermat, who made significant contributions of his own to number theory and related fields. These treatises include the tract on his method of calculation by exclusion, which gives applications to problems concerning right-angled triangles whose sides are integers, e.g. he discussed right-angles triangles the sum or difference of whose legs is given. There are also two treatises on magic squares. "The most important of these works of Frenicle is the treatise "Des quarrez ou tables magiques". These squares, which are of Chinese origin and to which the Arabs were so partial, reached the Occident not later then the fifteenth century. Frenicle pointed out that the number of magic squares increased enormously with the order by writing down 880 magic squares of the fourth order, and gave a process for writing down magic squares of even order" (DSB V.159). <br/><br/> After the death of Frenicle and Roberval in 1675, their books and manuscripts were entrusted to the astronomer Jean Picard. Eight treatises by Huygens were also sent to Picard expressly for publication in this collection, including De la cause de la pesanteur, Construction d'un problème d'optique and his Démonstration de l'equilibre de la balance. The volume also contains five treatises by Picard himself, including an unusual 37-page work on dioptrics, one by Mariotte and two by Rømer. One of the Auzout contributions is a description of his micrometer - the only treatise in this collection which was published previously. <br/><br/> This is one of the earliest important publications of the Académie des Sciences, and one of the most magnificent. Founded on 22 December 1666, one of the principal functions of the Académie was to facilitate publication of the works of its members. Frenicle and Roberval were founding members (as was Huygens), and without the assistance of the Académie it is likely that many of their works would have remained unpublished (only one work by Frenicle and two by Roberval were published in their lifetimes)..
