He is renowned to the present day as the cartographer who created a world map based on a new projection which represented sailing courses of constant bearing as straight lines. In his own day he was the world's most famous geographer but in addition he had interests in theology, philosophy, history, mathematics and magnetism as well as being an accomplished engraver, calligrapher and maker of globes and scientific instruments.

         Capitulaire auquel est traicté qu'un homme nay sans testicule apparens, & qui ha neanmoins toutes les autres marques de virilité est capable des ?uvres du mariage. Derniere edition reveuë & augmentée ...

      Paris, chez François Jacquin, 1604, in 12, de 1f. de titre & 140pp., (avec erreur de pagination comme dans tous les exemplaires: celle-ci passant de 62 à 93 puis les derniers ff. étant chiffrées 135-139-139-158-159 & 140) pl. chagrin vert fin XIXe, dos orné, triple filet doré sur les plats, dentelle int., coiffe sup. usée, (ex-libris Bibl. du Dr. Charpentier) Célèbre factum de l'avocat Rouillard, un chef d'oeuvre du genre selon Gay. Ecrit en faveur du baron d'Argenton, dont la femme voulait faire annuler le mariage sous prétexte d'impuissance. Rouillard soutint que le Baron "avoit consommé le mariage; non par les moyens ridicules qu'elle supposoit, mais par l'effect naturel de son sexe. Il demanda qu'on la visita ... et s'offrit au Congrès, pour demonstrer à l'espreuve qu'il avoit l'errection, intromission et ejaculation à luy controversées." La femme ayant refusé ces deux examens jugés choquants pour sa pudeur, Rouillard discourut amplement "de la fonction des testicules selon les philosophes... et les observations de l'anatomie, ne s'amusant point à des périphrases et à des locutions voilées... il se servit des termes de l'art... non sans quelques plaisanteries et traits gaillards" (selon Bayle dans son dictionnaire). ¶ Gay Amour, femmes I. p.468 "Ce factum d'avocat était autrefois regardé comme un chef-d'oeuvre du genre... Rouillard n'était pas seulement un habile avocat... très docte et très éloquent, c'était encore un poète, un historien, un philologue, dont les nombreux ouvrages furent très estimés... l'édition de 1603 et les suivantes, sont les plus complètes, et sous ce rapport, sont préférables aux premières." - Dupin I.p.327 n°1488 - Brunet IV 1417 (édit. orig. de 1600)."

         La fortification reduicte en art et demonstree (.). Premierement imprimée à Paris. Maintenant mis en lumiere par la vesve, & les deux fils de Theodore de Bry.

      - Francfort sur le Mein, De l'impression de Wolfg. Richter, 1604. In-4 (294 x 200 mm), plein vélin souple de l'époque, dos lisse titré à plume, (5), 77 p, (1) f. blanc, titre frontispice, illustrations sur bois dans le texte, 38 planches dépliantes gravées hors texte. Édition de Francfort, parue en même temps que la seconde édition parisienne (E.O., 1600) du premier traité français consacré à la fortification bastionnée, à son architecture, et à en exposer les principes. Ses travaux valurent à Jean Errard d’être désigné comme le "père de la fortification française". L’ouvrage est illustré d'un beau titre typographique dans un décor architectural gravé, aux armoiries de Francfort, de France et de l’imprimeur Richter, de 38 gravures sur cuivre sur doubles pages, de gravures dans le texte, lettrines ornementées, bandeaux et culs-de-lampe. Protestant, mathématicien et ingénieur militaire lorrain Jean Errard (Bar-le-Duc 1554 - Sedan 1610) avait d’abord été au service de Charles III de Lorraine (1580). Celui-ci s’étant rallié à la Ligue, Errard dut se réfugier dans la principauté calviniste de Sedan où il reçut le titre d’ingénieur du prince. En 1587, il fut envoyé à Jametz pour défendre la place. Son action lui valut d’être appelé par Henri IV qu’il accompagna dans les différentes campagnes de reconquête du royaume pour les opérations de siège et l’édification de bastions et fortifications sur les principes qu’il avait conçu. En récompense, Henri IV le nomma ingénieur du roi (1599). Errard avait modifié, entre autres, les fortifications de Doullens, Montreuil, Sedan et construit les citadelles d'Amiens et de Verdun. Véritable sommet sur le sujet, souvent cité par ses successeurs, ce traité et les travaux de Jean Errard ont servi de référence à tous les auteurs ultérieurs dont Vauban qui perfectionna son système. (Brunet, II, 1050. Millard, I, 68 [éd. 1620]. Katalog Berlin, 3518 [éd. 1622]. Gaber, ‘Jean Errard, ingénieur des fortifications du roi de France Henri IV’, p. 105-118. Pouillon, Cat., 1985, n° 45 [édition de 1603]). Taches d'encre sur le second plat, quelques petites déchirures et accrocs de papier aux pliures des planches sans perte, quelques rousseurs et auréoles éparses. Bel exemplaire très frais, bien conservé dans sa première reliure de vélin souple, grand de marges. [Attributes: First Edition]

Handsome copy. ---- VD 17 23:294904N; Ziegenfuss-Jung II, p.681. - TWO VERY RARE works ranging from medicine to cosmology, physics to philosophy. Taurellus (1547-1606) was professor of medicine at Basel and Altdorf and is best known for his works on medicine, ethics and philosophy. He attacked the pantheism of the Italian Aristotelians and created a Protestantly oriented philosophy, which sought to reconcile Luther's teachings about original sin and faith with philosophy, first in Philosophiae triumphus (1573). Taurellus identifies as main opponents Francesco Piccolomini, the Jesuit school of Coimbra, more generally the sixteenth-century Aristotelianism, and also Cesalpino. He "developed a method that made natural philosophy dependent on metaphysics and in turned demonized natural philosophers living in Catholic lands. Accordingly, Taurellus believed his philosophy successfully combined theology and the study of nature. Even though this goal was similar to that of Jesuits and other Catholic orders, Taurellus distinguished his philosophical views on God from the Coimbrans' commentators and other theologically minded philosophers. His attacks, however, were most vehement and relentless against lay Italian philosophers who held that natural philosophy should be independent from considerations of the divine. He found two Italians to be the most egregious: Francesco Piccolomini and Andrea Cesalpino, both of whom he saw as producing a naturalistic version of philosophy that overlooked key questions of faith. For Taurellus, the dangers of naturalism were remedied by a consideration of metaphysics that corresponded to theology.The most extensive analysis of Taurellus' work depicts him as shifting Ger-man philosophy from being dominated by studies of logic to studies of meta-physics, a change that became fully realized in the work of Leibniz, who indeed was familiar with Taurellus' writings."

Nach langen Reisen durch England und Deutschland begann er 1570 in seinem Geburtsorte die Praxis auszuüben, ging später nach Hamburg und wohnte danach in Emden (1586). Er schrieb eine Abhandlung: "De scorbuto liber cum observationibus, quo omnia quae de signis ejus diaqnosticis dici possunt continentur animadversa" (Bremen 1588, Leipzig 1604, Jena 1624, 1634, Haag 1658, Leipzig 1662, Amsterdam 1720), durch HALLER ausführlich erwähnt, durch VAN SWIETEN ("E. optime de scorbuto scripsit") gelobt und auch noch in unserem Jahrhundert durch DOLLEMAN ("Disquit. histor. de morbis endemicis apud Belgas" (Amsterdam 1824)) als verdienstliche Arbeit geschätzt, weil daraus hervorgeht, dass der Verfasser ein besserer Diagnostiker war und weit einfacher in der Therapie vorging als die meisten seiner Zeitgenossen, und dass er den Muth hatte, die damals herrschenden galenischen Lehrsätze offen zu bestreiten." C. E. Daniels, Hirsch II, p.312

         Relaciones de Don Juan de Persia

      First edition of a rare and enigmatic text, with its origins in a Persian-language travel diary of Uruch Beg Bayat (1560-1605), and one of the first Persian travel accounts of Europe. Beg Bayat was a nobleman and secretary in the delegation sent to Europe in 1599 by the Safavid ruler Shah 'Abbas I at the urging of Sir Anthony Sherley (1565-1635), author of his own Persian narrative (Relation of His Travels into Persia, London, 1613). Beg converted to Catholicism in Valladolid in 1601, altered the target audience of his text from an Iranian court to a Spanish public, and took for himself the name "Don Juan of Persia." With the substantial help of his mentor, Alfonso Remón, he translated his text into Castilian, amplified its contents, and published it in 1604. All traces of the Persian "original" have been lost. The Relaciones is divided into three parts, the first two treating Persia, and the third focusing on the 1599-1602 European embassy of Shah 'Abbas. Part One presents details of Persian political structures, rituals, customs, and geography, adding to these a history of Islam up until the rise of the Ottoman state. Part Two focuses on the history of the Safavids from the household's beginnings through their latest conflicts with the Ottomans in 1578-1590. Don Juan then offers intriguing first-hand information about the 1599 journey of the Safavid embassy, numbering some 50 people, traveling via the Caspian Sea and Russia to meet with European heads of state. Nominally led by the chief ambassador, Husain Ali Beg, the embassy was conceived in a meeting between Shah 'Abbas and the English adventurer Sir Anthony Sherley, their objective being the opening of trade routes and, more pointedly, the cultivation of a European-Persian alliance against the Ottoman Empire. The embassy was not a success: Although received by the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolph II, the former Duke of Bavaria Wilhelm II, Vincenzo Gonzaga of Mantua, and King Phillip III of Spain, the Safavids were denied a meeting by the Doge of Venice and plans to speak with the courts of France, England, Scotland and Poland were abandoned. Don Juan claims that Sherley sold off a fortune's worth of gifts intended by the Shah for foreign potentates. Several diplomats converted to Catholicism in Rome, more in Valladolid (perhaps a better alternative than returning to Persia to face the wrath of Shah 'Abbas). In 1605 Don Juan of Persia was killed in a street brawl in Valladolid. Palau, 223840. Cyrus Ghani, Iran and the West: A Critical Bibliography, p. 379.

         Det Ny Testamente paa Danske. Met Kongelig Mayestatz Frihed, udi 10. Aar icke at efftertrycke.

      Kiøbenhaffn, Henrich Waldkirch, 1604. 4to. (18,5 x 15,5 cm.). Samtidigt helldrbd. over træ. Med 4 ægte bind på ryg. Permer med rammer i blindtryk. To lukkebeslag af messing på forperm bevaret. I kanten af bagpermen småskader efter tab af beslag. Permer med lidt skrabespor. Lidt krakelering på ryg, men trods alt et ganske velbevaret samtidigt helbind. Titelbladet trykt i rød/sort med bred sammensat træstukken ramme. Fortale f 1-4, teksten f 5-322, register 5 unnummererede blade (komplet). Med stort træsnit til Matthæus samt talrige halvsides træsnit til Johannes Aabenbaring. Træsnittene efter Virgil Solis (ligesom i Fr. II's Bibel). Et læg lidt løst hvorved 5 blade lidt frønset i ydre margin. Titelblad lettere brunplettet, registerblade med brugsspor, ellers ganske få brunpletter. Biblen er sat i 2 spalter. Af denne 1604 udgave er kun ganske få eksemplarer bevaret, og sandsynligvis er dette eksemplar det eneste eksisterende komplette i privateje; således anføres i Thesaurus II "Bogen er meget sjælden; den er formodentlig slidt op ved læsning. Et ukomplet exp. findes i privateje. Træsnittene, som her illustrerer Johannes Aabenbaring er udfærdiget af den uidentificerede kunstner, som signerer sig "Ifl", og som bl.a. kendes fra illustrationerne til Gustav Adolfs Bibel.Efter Frederik II's Bibel udkom 1589 steg behovet herhjemme for en bibeludgave til hjemmebrug og som ikke var i det store folioformat som kirkebiblerne. Boghandler Hans Aalborg og møntmester Niels Schwabe fik 1603 et privilegium af kongen rækkende 10 år - det fremgår af underteksten på titelbladet - på at fremstille en bibel "udi en liden Format og stor Octav". Det eneste resultat af dette privilegium blev udgivelsen af "Det Ny Testamente" 1604 og trykt af Waldkirch - bogen som er tilbudt her - idet kongen trak privilegiet tilbage efter at Hans Poulsen Resen havde overbevist ham om, at der krævedes en helt ny oversæættelse, og dette fra grundteksten. 1604-udgaven er en gengivelse af teksten fra Frederik II's Bibel. Resultatet af Resens anstrængelser blev som bekendt "Resens Helbibel", hvoraf de to første bind udkom allerede i slutningen af 1605. Denne oversættelse går igen i Christian IV's Folio Bibel, 1633."Der findes to omfattende billedserier af Ifl og desuden en hel del kartuscherammer. De bedst kendte rammer er dem, vi første gang ser i Frederik ll's bibel 1589 omkring Solis-kopierne, men som også findes i mangfoldige senere værker. Billedserierne er en række bibelillustrationer i ret lille format, som synes påbegyndt midt i 1580erne, og hvoraf et af de senere billeder er dateret 1588. Den mest storslåede anvendelse fandt de i polyglotbiblen, som udgaves i Hamburg 1588-96, og som var tilegnet Christian IV. Bedst kendt i Skandinavien er de blevet som illustrationer i Gustav Adolfs bibel 1617-18. I Danmark fandt de anvendelse i bogtrykkeren Henrich Waldkirchs udgivelser, f. eks. Det Nye Testamente fra 1604. I Nordtyskland brugtes de endnu helt ned imod 1700."(Georg Garde i Fund og Forskning, Bd. 14. 1967).Bibl. Danica I, 45 - Rosenkilde "Europæiske Bibeltryk" 1952.Extremely rare edition, which is only known in very few copies. This is presumably the only complete copy on private hands.

         Hieroglyphica, Sive De Sacris Aegyptiorum [ Book Of Ancient Emblems ]

      Jo. Antonius & Jacobus De Francicis, Venice 1604 - b/w; . .aliarumque gentium literis commentarii. Title printed in red and black, with large woodcut printer's device. [60], 644, 47, [2]pp. Numerous woodcut emblems. Library stamps. 19th century mottled vellum backed paper boards. 8.75 x 13.75", 5 pounds. Pierio Valeriano Bolzani (1477- 1558) , born Giampietro Valeriano Bolzani, was an Italian Renaissance humanist, favored by the Medici. His Hieroglyphica, written during a frenzy of popularity surrounding the rediscovered Hieroglyphica of Horapollo, was a nearly thousand-page folio that constituted the first Renaissance dictionary of symbols, which would become a popular genre. The work is a curious compendium of ancient and Medieval lore that was once anchored in a monastic library. First published in 1556, Valeriano rose to such fame as a scholar that Venice erected a statue of him outside the Frari church. Despite its title, this work will tell the reader very little about the hieroglyphs of Egypt, but it is full of information on natural history, culled from Medieval bestiaries, lapidaries, and the "Physiologus," an ancient book of Alexandrian origin. More importantly, the work was widely used as a source in the 16th and 17th centuries for art, literature, and emblem books. Mortimer calls the book "a major contribution to emblem literature," and Moseley calls it "the great encyclopedia of symbol for the period." Praz, page 521; 5 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Ad 1: First edition of a work on God's creation of Earth, by the well-known Portuguese rabbi, writer and printer Menasseh Ben Israel (1604-1657), who established the first Jewish printing office in the Netherlands. The work presents 30 questions, or "problems", concerning God's creation of the Earth, which Menasseh tries to answer and explain, citing or referring to passages of the Tenach. Problems include "on which day were demons created?" and "was there another world or earth before God created this one?". The preliminaries including an important poem by Caspar Barlaeus, which caused the Amsterdam authorities to consider the reintroduction of censorship for Jewish publications. As this didn't happen, Barlaeus's poem can be seen as an indicator of the relationship between Jews and Christians, and the religious tolerance in Amsterdam during the Golden Age.Ad 2: First edition of a work on the resurrection of the dead by the same author. The work is divided into three "books" and opens with several dedicatory letters, an index of the chapters, and 3 laudatory poems. The last page of the preliminaries gives a short list is of books translated from Hebrew into Spanish. The main text deals with the Last Judgment, the resurrection of the dead and the immortality of the soul.With a bookseller's ticket and bookplate.

         [Title on spine:] Opera.Amsterdam, Johannes Janssonius (2 works: Johannes Janssonius van Waesberge), 1651-1669. 19 works (42 parts) in 4 volumes. 8vo. With 10 engraved folding plates and 7 woodcut illustrations in text (lacking 4 woodcut plates in work 5). Half vellum (ca. 1815).

      Bolton, Select bibl. of chemistry, p. 483 (this set?); Ferguson, Bib. Chem. I, pp. 323-330; for the author: DSB V, pp. 419-423. Collection of 19 works by Johann Rudolph Glauber (1604-1670), "the best practical chemist of his day" (DSB), including notable writings such as: Pharmacopoea spagyrica, Furni novi philosophici, Prosperitatis Germaniae, Miraculum mundi and Operis mineralis. Many are the first Latin editions, published more or less simultaneously with the first editions in the original German. In 1639 Glauber left his native Germany because of the disturbances of the Thirty Years' War and moved to Amsterdam where he "outfitted what was surely the most impressive laboratory in Europe" (DSB). He is particularly interesting because he stands between the chemists who deliberately followed alchemy and those who took a modern scientific approach.With the bookplates of Charles Finney Cox (1846-1912), anonymous bookplates dated 1857, bookplates with unidentified 19th-century coat of arms and library stamps "KB". In his bibliography Bolton includes four volumes by Glauber with the title Opera (Amsterdam, 1650-1670), which includes the same treatises in the same order. As the present volumes were in the collection of Charles F. Cox around that the time of publication in 1892, and thus in the USA, it's likely it's the same set.Lacking the 4 woodcut plates from Furni novi philosophici, some spots and browning throughout, a few dampstains in the upper margin and the title-page of the Prosperitatis Germaniae pars prima included twice (both detached and loosely inserted). The sides of the binding are a bit rubbed, the spines slightly soiled, and 1 cord in volume 3 has broken at the front hinge. Still a good set.

Collection of six works mainly concerning iatrochemistry, chemistry for healing purposes, by Johann Rudolph Glauber (1604-1670), "the best practical chemist of his day" (DSB). The present Latin editions were published more or less simultaneously with the original German ones.The first is a medical handbook for seamen, recommending the use of hydrochloric acid (oleum salis) for a long list of illnesses; the second a guide for making wine and spirits from fruits and vegetables; the third a treatise on the universal medicine (aurum potabile), which he then believed to be nitre (saltpetre); the fourth the continuation to his Miraculi mundi , where he begins to recognize the medical significance of what we now know as Glauber's salt; this last notion is elaborated in the two concluding treatises.With 1661 owner's inscription on flyleaf. Some occasional minor foxing, the three plates trimmed very close, shaving the illustration, and a tiny stain on the fore-edge, but still in good condition. Binding with a couple wormholes in the spine and a small part of the hinges damaged, otherwise in very good condition.
