      - Schnurrer 169; for Pococke: Toomer, "Pococke, Edward (1604-1691)", in: ODNB (online ed). Second edition of Pococke's elaborate Specimen historiae Arabum, an excerpt from Abu'l-Faraj's Islamic history, in Arabic and Latin. The excerpt is "accompanied by a lengthy commentary (printed first in 1648) illuminating Islamic history, geography, mythology, religion, and literature from a wealth of sources, mostly unpublished and previously unknown in Europe. It represents a revolution in Arabic studies, being Pococke's attempt to show that far from being a mere ancillary to biblical exegesis, Arabic literature (in the widest sense) was worthy of study in its own right in the same way that classical cultures were. It is his greatest work, and of permanent scholarly value" (Toomer). Abu'l-Faraj's account is followed by unpublished fragments, in Arabic, of Abu'l-Fida's account of pre-Islamic Arabia, edited by Sylvestre de Sacy.From the library of the Ducs de Luynes, with their bookplate on pastedown.

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.

        [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.

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.

        Relation historique et geographique, de la grande rivière des Amazones dans l'Amérique. Extraicte de divers autheurs, & reduitte en meilleure forme.Paris, Cardin Besogne, 1656. 8vo. With engraved double page map of the Amazon Basin. Contemporary mottled calf, gold-tooled spine.

      Borba de Moraes, p. 128; Palau 208623; Sabin 58141; for John Locke: Harrison & Laslett, The Library of John Locke, p. 201, nr. 2167. Reissue of an interesting work on the Amazon River by Blaise François de Pagan, count of Merveilles (1604-1655), dedicated to Cardinal Mazarin. The account is often considered only a slight variation on Acuña's work, but Pagan contradicts him on several points. The author probably had some travel accounts at his disposal which were unknown to Acuña (the reports by Teixera and Du Pará for example). The map drawn by Pagan is of great importance, since it shows the French colonial ambitions in the region.Our copy was originally in the library of the philosopher John Locke (1632-1704). It is inscribed by Locke and bears a press-mark, the date of purchase, the number of pages, the price paid for it (noted on page 11, as he always did), and a list of pages which interested him.Binding chafed, spine restored. Good copy of a rare work, with a most interesting provenance and complete with the map, often lacking.

      Francofurti ad Moenum : Ex officina Wolfgangi Richteri 1604 - 2 parts in one volume. Folio, 30 cm. Elegantly bound in modern full red levant moroccan, raised bands, all edges gilt, gilt rule. Fine binding. Engraved vignette on general title; [8], 127 pp, [1]; [1], 26 leaves of half-page engraved illustrations. Occasional light browning. Marginal dampstaining to final 20 text pages in first part. Minor spotting in second part (plates). First edition, first issue of the sixth volume of de Bry's Little Voyages. This volume covers the first-hand account of Pieter de Marees's first Dutch expedition to Guinea, 1600-01. Pieter de Marees' history of Guinea, originally published in 1602, is one of the earliest detailed European descriptions of West African society and an essential reference for the precolonial period. De Marees wrote primarily about the Gold Coast (Ghana), but his work also covers Cape Verde (Senegal). This work he "discusses the Slave Coast and the Portuguese participation in the traffic". (Postma, The Dutch in the Atlantic Slave Trade, 1600-1815, p. 13). These trade ties would drive European interest in the region leading to the propagation of the Slave Trade. Brunet 1338.

        Istria olim Iapidia

      Bologna 1604 - Carta geografica tratta da L'Italia a cura di Fabio Magini, edito a Bologna tra il 1620 ed il 1640. La carta dell’Istria è probabilmente opera del Magini stesso, in quanto la carta di Pietro Coppo (1520) e quelle di Bertelli e Camocio (1569), risultano molto diverse nel rilievo del territorio. Questo lascia presupporre che il Magini abbia avuto tra le mani una carta inedita probabilmente fornitagli direttamente dalla Repubblica Veneta. Almagià nota come questa sia una delle rare eccezioni nell’opera dell’astronomo padovano, in quanto la lastra non risulta cancellata e corretta in nessun modo. Probabilmente la lastra venne iniziata dall’Arnoldi e terminata dal Wright. Lieve gora nei margini, nel complesso in ottimo stato di conservazione. Almagià pagg. 46/47. Dimensioni 480 355mm

        De Mari Libero und Paulus Merulas "Dissertatio de Maribus" und Marcus Zuerius Boxhorns "Apologia Pro Navigationibus Hollandorum, Adversus Pontum Heuterum"

      Mit einem gestochenen Frontispiz, 308 Seiten 12, braun mellierte alte Pp mit gedrucktem Rückentitel SEHR SELTENER TITEL IN EINEM SCHÖNEN FESTEN EXEMPLAR mit schönen gestochenen Initialen und herrlichen Kopf- und Schluss-Vignetten sowie einem sauberen alten Bibliotheksstempel. Hugo Grotius war einer der wichtigsten Rechtsgelehrten des 17. Jahrhunderts und galt als ein Wunderkind. Bereits als 12-Jähriger trat er in die Universität Leiden ein und lenkte schon frühzeitig die Aufmerksamkeit des großen J. J. Scaliger auf sich. Er promovierte zum Doktor der Rechte und verfasste 1604 als 21-Jähriger aus Anlass eines Rechtsfalles, bei dem es um das Eigentum an einer portugisischen Galeone ging, die in der Meerenge von Malakka gekapert wurden war, eine Abhandlung mit dem Titel "De jure praedae" ("Über das Recht am Raube"). Es enthält bereits die Grundgedanken seines späteren Hauptwerkes, blieb aber bis 1868 unveröffentlicht. Lediglich ein Kapitel daraus wurde 1609 zunächst anonym unter dem Titel "Mare Liberum" ("Das freie Meer") veröffentlicht. Die katholische Kirche indiziert "Mare liberum" umgehend, da es die päpstliche Weltordnung untergrub. Grotius formulierte hier einen revolutionären neuen Grundsatz, indem er erklärte, die Meere seien internationale Gewässer und alle Nationen hätten das Recht, sie zur Handelsschifffahrt zu nutzen. 1925 schrieb er binnen eines Jahres sein Meisterwerk "De jure Belli ac Pacis" (Über das Kriegs- und Friedensrecht), das ihn in ganz Europa berühmt machte. Dieses Werk, das für die späteren Auffassungen des Völkerrechts grundlegend wurde, war der erste Versuch, außerhalb der Kirche und der heiligen Schrift einen Rechtsgrundsatz aufzustellen und eine Rechtsgrundlage für Gesellschaft und Regierung zu schaffen. Die Unterscheidung zwischen Religion einerseits und Recht und Moralität andereseits ist zwar nicht klar und eindeutig getroffen, aber dessen ungeachtet ist Grotius Prinzip eines unwandelbaren Rechts, das Gott ebenso wenig ändern kann wie ein mathematisches Axiom, die erste Formulierung des "droit naturel", des Naturrechts, das die großen politischen Theoretiker des 18. Jahrhunderts so stark beschäftigte und das die Grundlage des modernen Völkerrechts ist.

The work is that of the French adventurer François Martin de Vitré (c. 1575-c. 1631), who, upon his return to Brittany from the East Indies in 1603, prepared this lively account at the behest of King Henry IV (1553-1610). Martin's narrative inspired Henry in 1604 to establish the first iteration of the French East India Company (Compagnie des Indes Orientales) with designs on exploiting the treasures described in the present work (cf. Lombard, "Martin de Vitré, Premier Breton à Aceh").Likely enlisted as ship's surgeon aboard the Croissant, François Martin of Vitré, along with several companions from Saint-Malo and Laval, sailed from Britanny in 1601, rounding the Cape of Good Hope in May of that year. The Croissant's companion ship, the Corbin, wrecked in the Maldives, but Martin eventually succeeded in reaching Ceylon and trading with the Aceh in Sumatra. Upon his return journey he was captured by the Dutch at Cape Finisterre but finally returned to France in 1603. In his preface Martin summarizes the European powers' incursions in the East and laments the tardiness of the French to exploit the region's riches: "This has made me deplore the defect of the French, who more than any other nation are provided with a vivacity of spirit and a formidable worthiness, but who have nevertheless languished for so long in a slumber of idleness, ignoring information on the treasures of the East Indies with which the Portuguese and Spanish have enriched themselves" (p. 3).In the first two sections of the work Martin gives ample space to the discussion of flora, fauna, and commercial matters relevant the regions he visits (aromatic plants, spices, crops, the elephant, rhinoceros and tiger, the crocodile, tortoise and bird of paradise, livestock, the hunt, woods, weights and measures, currency, etc.), but he also includes a great deal of anthropological detail. Evidently the stereotypical red-blooded Breton seafarer, Martin, in his chapter on the "habits and customs we observed during our stay in the Indies" (pp. 38-66) dwells mainly on women - the prostitution of premarital women, their perfumes, their bathing rituals, their medicines, and their punishment for adultery. He also notes gestures of salutation (two hands together before one's forehead), marriage customs ("they can marry seven wives if they have the means to support them"), and gives detailed reports on the traditions and inner workings of both Hinduism and Islam. He notes Turkish merchants to be frequent visitors to these lands, and writes of seeing a cannon of Chinese manufacture. Martin's intriguing 4-page dictionary of words useful for the traveler includes a section on counting in Malagasy, the language of Madagascar. The volume also contains a brief but significant "dictionary" of the Malay language, described here as "Elegant and easy to learn, like Latin" ("fort beau & facile a aprendre . comme le latin en leurope"). Finally, in his presumed role as ship's surgeon, Martin penned a third section treating scurvy, recommending among other cures the use of citrus fruits and an aqueous preparation of alum. OCLC lists only two U.S. copies of this 1604 first edition: NYPL and the Minnesota's Bell Library (lacking 2 prelims). The work was reprinted in 1609, and of this second edition OCLC locates U.S. copies only at Harvard and the Boston Athenaeum.* Atkinson 444; Brunet, Supl. I, 920 (citing only the second edition); cf. also Denys Lombard, "Martin de Vitré. Premier Breton à Aceh (1601-1603)," Archipel 54: 3-12 (1997).

      Colonia 1604 - Rarissima carta geografica, tratta dal "Deliciae Hispaniae et Index Viatorius Indicans Itinera.". Cyprian Eichovius è lo pseudonimo di Matthias Quad (Deventer 1557 - Colonia 1613). Come spesso succedeva all'epoca per sfuggire alle persecuzioni cattoliche contro i protestanti Matthias Quad usò per la sua attività diversi pseudoni mi, tra cui quelli noti di C. Eichovius, M. Quadus, M. Quad von Kinckelbach e quello di Konrad Loew. Fuggito dall'Olanda in Germania nel 1587, studiò ad Heidelberg e divenne poi uno dei più prolifici esponenti della cosiddetta Scuola Cartografica di Colonia, durata per circa mezzo secolo (1570-1620 ca.) e formata principalmente da rifugiati fiamminghi ed olandesi tra i quali spiccano lo stesso Quad e Frans Hogenberg che ne fu il fondatore. Nel 1594 Quad pub blica a Colonia Europae, totius terrarum orbis partis praestantissimae descriptio. Nel 1596 ca., sempre a Colonia pubblica Typus Orbis Terrarum, ad Imitationem Universalis Gerhardi Mercatoris, un planisfero sulla base dell'opera marcatoria-na e nel 1600 pubblica il suo primo atlante mondiale autonomo: Geographisch Handtbuch, che è anche il primo edito in lingua tedesca. Nel 1608 ne uscì una edizione in latino Fasciculus Geographicus con quattro mappe inedite incise da Johann Bussemacher, suo assiduo collaboratore. A causa dei suoi numerosi pseudonimi la sua vasta produzione editoriale rimane ancora da identificare completamente. Le carte del Quad ebbero poca fortuna poiché stampate nel periodo dei grandi successi degli atlanti Orteliani; pertanto nessuna ristampa dell’atlante è nota, rendendolo rarissimo e molto ricercato nel mercato antiquario. Map taken form the very rare "Deliciae Hispaniae et Index Viatorius Indicans Itinera.". Cyprian Eichovius is the alias of Matthias Quad (Deventer 1557 - Cologne 1613). As it often appened then, to escape from Catholic persecution, Protestants, and Matthias Quad among them, used many alias for their work. The most famous used by the artis were C. Eichovius, M. Quadus, M. Quad von Kinckelbach and Konrad Loew. Quad escaped from Holland to Germany in 1587, studied in Heidelberg and afterwards became one of the most prolific artists of the Cartographic School of Cologne, whose activity lasted for 150 years (1570-1620 ca.). The school was basically built up by Flemish and Dutch artists escaping from persecution, among them also Frans Hogenberg, the founder of the school. In 1594 Quad published in Cologne Europae, totius terrarum orbis partis praestantissimae descriptio. In 1596 approximately, and again in Cologne, he published Typus Orbis Terrarum, ad Imitationem Universalis Gerhardi Mercatoris, a world map based on Marcator’s work but in 1600 he published his personal, indipendent world atlas, the Geographisch Handtbuch, which is also the first one published in German. In 1608 a Latin edition was issued, Fasciculus Geographicus, with four unpublished maps engraved by Johann Bussemacher, his collaborator. Due to his multiple alias, his huge production is still to be completely identified. Quad’s maps did not enjoy great success for they were published the same period of Ortelius’ atlases; for that reason, there is not a second edition known of Quad’s work, which makes his first one vary rare and sought-after.

        Venetia città nobilissima, et singolare; descritta già in XIIII Libri et hora con molta diligenza corretta, emendata, e più d'un terzo di cose nuove ampliata dal M. R. D. Giovanni Stringa, Canonico della Chiesa Ducale di S. Marco. Nella quale si contengono tutte le cose, così Antiche, come Moderne..

      Presso Altobello Salicato, 1604. In-4° (220x163mm), ff. (39), 432 + 39 di prospetto storico ("Cronico particolare delle cose fatte da i Veneti dal principio della Città fino all'anno 1603"). Legatura coeva m. pergamena e angoli con titolo in oro su tassello al dorso e piatti in cartone marmoreggiato; titolo manoscritto in antico al taglio di piede. Al frontespizio, veduta xilografica della città di Venezia in cornice figurata con insegne allegoriche accantonate. Dedicatoria dello Striga all'Arcivescovo di Salisburgo, Wolf Dietrich von Raitenau ("Volfango Theodorico"), seguita da un'avvertenza ai lettori, da due sonetti dedicati all'autore da Pietro Petracci e da Nicolò Negri e da svariati indici bicolonni. Testatine e capilettera xilografici istoriati. Alcuni minimali forellini marginali di tarlo, strappetto marginale alle pp. 126-127. Antiche note di possesso manoscritte. Bell'esemplare. Seconda edizione, aumentata e migliorata, di questa celebre illustrazione storico-artistica di Venezia, pubblicata per la prima volta nel 1581. Scrisse lo Schlosser: "È questa la prima topografia artistica di uno dei più importanti centri italiani, apparsa per le stampe, e veramente degna di quel nome, e per questo di singolar valore, non meno che per l"abbondanza di notizie su uno dei periodi artisticamente piu" ricchi". Un ampio contributo sulla storia e sull"organizzazione della Repubblica introduce alla esatta descrizione topografica della città accuratamente analizzata secondo i suoi sestieri (i libri VII, VIII e IX sono dedicati alle scuole, ai palazzi ed a tutti gli edifici pubblici e privati). Il Sansovino (Roma, 1521-Venezia, 1583), figlio del sommo architetto e scultore Iacopo Tatti, detto appunto il Sansovino, non seguì le orme artistiche del padre, preferendo volgersi ad una fluviale attività di poligrafo. Della sua bibliografia ricordiamo versi, opere storiche sulle "Origini e fatti delle famiglie illustri d'Italia" e sulle imprese dei Turchi in Europa ("Annali Turcheschi"), testi di precettistica e di critica letteraria (notevoli quelli sul "Decameron"), un "Ragionamento d'Amore" dedicato a Gaspara Stampa, traduzioni di classici greci e latini; non pago di tale inintermessa grafomania, aprì anche in proprio una stamperia che dette alla luce molte pregevoli edizioni (sul Sansovino, G. Sforza, F. S. e le sue opere storiche, in Memorie della Regia Accademia delle Scienze di Torino, XLVII, 1897; Flamini, Il Cinquecento, passim). Michel-Michel, VII, p. 81. Cicognara, 4379-4380: "Questa è la migliore illustrazione di Venezia non senza errori, ma almeno desunta da buone fonti". Cicogna, 4465 e sgg.: "Quanto merito abbia il Sansovino perl'Opera testè annunciata è così notorio appo i Veneziani e i forestieri, ch'è superfluo il parlarne". Schlosser, pp. 367-369.

        San Francesco consolato dall'Angelo Musicante o La Visione di San Francesco

      1604. "Bulino, 1604 circa, firmato lungo il margine inferiore ""Raffaello Sadeler eius Chalcographus DD"". Da un dipinto di fra 'Cosmo da Castelfranco, al secolo Paolo Piazza. Questa incisione del Sadeler riproduce un dipinto oggi disperso di fra' Cosimo da Castelfranco, al secolo Paolo Piazza (1557-1621), ed è un prezioso documento perché è la sola traduzione a stampa del dipinto ad oggi nota. Bella prova, impressa su carta evrgata coeva con filigrana "scudo con croce", rifilata al rame, traccia di piega centrale orizzontale, visibile al verso, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. La scena raffigura San Francesco a letto ammalato, in una piccola stanza, con lo sguardo sorpreso rivolto ad un angelo che gli appare suonando un violino. Sulla porta, c'è un monaco che porta del cibo su un vassoio, mentre un altro frate è inginocchiato in preghiera. Lungo il margine superiore e inferiore alcuni versi in latino descrivono l'episodio. L'incisione reca la dedica alla duchessa Elisabetta di Baviera. In conformità con la rinnovata spiritualità del periodo, e in particolare con lo zelo riformatore dell'ordine dei Cappuccini (riconosciuto da papa Paolo III nel 1536), il culto di San Francesco godette di una rinnovata popolarità. Questa scena San Francesco consolato dall'Angelo non era stato trattato dagli artisti in epoca medievale e rinascimentale, ma è diventato popolare nella seconda metà del XVI secolo. Tra le prime opere della nuova iconografia è una pala d'altare perduta di Francesco Vanni per la cappella Capizucchi nella Basilica Santa Maria Maggiore nel 1592, e la celeberrima visione San Francesco dipinta Caravaggio del San Francesco nel 1594. Raphael Sadeler incise due lastre con questo soggetto: la prima dalla pala d'altare del Vanni, e la seconda dal dipinto di Paolo Piazza. L'iconografia del santo consolato dalla musica dell'angelo si rifà ad un episodio narrato da San Bonaventura e dai Fioretti: Quando San Francesco era molto debole nel corpo, a causa dell'astinenza, e delle sue battaglie con i demoni, cominciò a pensare alla gloria e alla beatitudine di quelli benedetti con la vita eterna, e quindi pregò Dio di concedergli la grazia di gustare una piccolo parte di quella beatitudine. Improvvisamente gli apparve un angelo, con grande splendore, che aveva una violino nella sua mano destra e l'arco nella sinistra. E mentre San Francesco era stupito da quella visione, l'Angelo iniziò a e subito la melodia soave confortò il suo animo, e annullò ogni sensazione corporea. Al verso, timbro di collezione della FIDEI-COMMISS BIBLIOTHEK, di Vienna (L. 1016)." Engraving, 1604 circa, signed at bottom edge "Raphael Sadeler eius Chalcographus DD". After fra' Cosmo da Castelfranco, born Paolo Piazza. Good impression, printed on contemporary laid paper, with watermark "shield with cross", trimmed close to the platemark, traces of a central fold on the back, otherwise in very good condition. This engraving is after a lost painting of the same subject by Paolo Piazza (1557-1621), recorded in print just by Sadeler. The scene depicts a room interior where St Francis lies sick in bed, an angel playing a violin appears to him, a monk brings in a tray with food, and another monk kneels in prayer; the room houses four doves, a lamb, a cat, a crucifix, an icon of the Virgin, a skull, a sun-dial, grapes, a gourd, vases, tables etc. Lettered along top with two Latin lines, and along bottom with three columns of description in Latin and two lines of dedicating to Elisabeth of Bavaria. In accordance with the renewed spirituality of the period, and in particular the reforming zeal of the Capuchin order (an independent branch of the Franciscans approved by Pope Paul III in 1536), the cult of Saint Francis enjoyed revived popularity. This scene of angelic consolation for the penitent suffering of Saint Francis was not treated by artists in medieval and Renaissance times, but it became a popular in the second half of the sixteenth century. Among the earliest treatment of the new iconography is a lost alterpiece by Francesco Vanni for the Capizuchi chapel in Santa Maria Maggiore in 1592, and the Caravaggio's Estasy of the Saint Francis painted about 1594. Raphael Sadeler engraved two prints of this subject: one after Vanni, also copied by Agostino Carracci in 1595, and the second one after Paolo Piazza. When Sain Francis was very weak in body, from abstinence, and his battles with demons, he began to think of the unmeasurable glory and bliss of those blessed with eternal life, and thus prayed to God that he give him the grace to taste a small portion of that bliss. Suddenly appeared to him an angel with great splendor, which had a violetta in its right hand and the bow in the left. And while Saint Francis was astonished at the presence of that angel, it drew the bow only once over the violetta, and immediately such sweetness and melody sweetened his soul, and relieved all bodily sensation.

        Ad Vitellionem paralipomena, quibus astronomiae pars optica traditur... Tractatum luculentum de modo visionis, & humorum oculi usu, contra opticos & anatomicos.

      Frankfurt: : Claudius Marnius & heirs of Joannes Aubrius, 1604. 1st Edition. Hardcover. 4to (205 x 157 mm). [16], 449, [19], [2] pp., including woodcut device on title, one engraved plate showing various anatomical sections of the eye bound at end, numerous woodcut diagrams in the text, two folding printed tables, and the unnumbered leaf with plate explanations. Browned throughout (about half of the text heavily) as usual due to poor quality of paper-stock, some waterstains to final leaves, short wormhole to blank fore-margin. Contemporary vellum over thin boards, spine titled in ink (boards soiled, spine tanned, vellum chipped and torn at fore-edges, little worming to spine). Still good, unsophisticated and well-margined copy in its original binding, collated complete. ----Caspar 18; Cinti 13; Zinner 3993; Honeyman 1781; Garrison, 260; NLM/Krivatsy 6343; DSB VII, 298. - FIRST EDITION of Kepler's important and highly significant book in the history of optics. The first part of 5 chapters deals with human vision and the functions of the eye, the crucial role played by the retina, the process of refraction and the first scientifically correct explanation of myopia. The second part is divided into six sections, which "include not only a discussion of parallax, astronomical refraction, and his eclipse instruments but also the annual variation in the apparent size of the sun. Since the changing size of the solar image is inversely proportional to the sun's distance, this key problem was closely related to his planetary theory; unfortunately, his observational results were not decisive. "The immediate impact of Kepler's optical work was not great; but ultimately it changed the course of optics" (DSB). "The physical theory of vision, which might be styled the ground-bass [sic] of ophthalmology, owes its development mainly to the work of great astronomers and physicists. The Ad Vitellionem paralipomena... contains a treatise on vision and the human eye in which is shown for the first time how the retina is essential to sight, the part the lens plays in refraction, and that the convergence of luminous rays before reaching the retina is the cause of myopia" (Garrison, p. 260). Kepler was responsible for introducing the terms "prism," "lens," "meniscus," and many others into the field of optics. Good.

        Discours des miseres de ce temps. [Ensemble] Les epitaphes de divers sujets, ensemble les derniers vers du mesme auteur, avec sa vie & son tombeau

      Volumes IX and X of the collective edition of 1604 Nicolas Buon address. Rare. All volumes collective editions of Ronsard are isolated, we do not find that very rarely met, that endorse Brunet, arguing that different volumes were published separately (as stated privileged) and not always to the same number, and that more, not one bears the title of works, and sometimes not volume number either.Each volume has its own pagination and title page; that of the second volume has no address and more like a title overhang (the volume of the National Library of France has this same feature). A portrait of the first volume Ronsard. italicized print.Binding full vintage parchment. Smooth spine with title in black pen. Lack of cover pages in the beginning of volume, thereby back partly detached from binding. Good copy, relatively fine.We found the reissue of many entrenched parts of the previous editions, published for the first time in 1609 in the edition folio and the separate edition. The last volume contains the Epistle to the reader and the Compendium of the poetic art. The first volume of Ronsard life by Claude Binet. "In this edition, the collection of severed pieces is increased by 18 sonnets, two songs, one preface, 1 warning, ode 1, 8 poems etc. Among the new pieces, note those for which Du Bartas Ronsard did not taste much style "(Ronsard, trumpet and harp, 1985) Chez Nicolas Buon A Paris 1604 In-12 (8,5x14,5cm) 127pp. ; 326pp. (2) relié

        Relation historique et geographique, de la grande rivière des Amazones dans l'Amérique. Extraicte de divers autheurs, & reduitte en meilleure forme.Paris, Cardin Besogne, 1656. 8vo. With engraved double page map of the Amazon Basin. Contemporary mottled calf, gold-tooled spine.

      - Borba de Moraes, p. 128; Palau 208623; Sabin 58141; for John Locke: Harrison & Laslett, The Library of John Locke, p. 201, nr. 2167. Reissue of an interesting work on the Amazon River by Blaise François de Pagan, count of Merveilles (1604-1655), dedicated to Cardinal Mazarin. The account is often considered only a slight variation on Acuña's work, but Pagan contradicts him on several points. The author probably had some travel accounts at his disposal which were unknown to Acuña (the reports by Teixera and Du Pará for example). The map drawn by Pagan is of great importance, since it shows the French colonial ambitions in the region.Our copy was originally in the library of the philosopher John Locke (1632-1704). It is inscribed by Locke and bears a press-mark, the date of purchase, the number of pages, the price paid for it (noted on page 11, as he always did), and a list of pages which interested him.Binding chafed, spine restored. Good copy of a rare work, with a most interesting provenance and complete with the map, often lacking.

        Discours des miseres de ce temps. [Ensemble] Les epitaphes de divers sujets, ensemble les derniers vers du mesme auteur, avec sa vie & son tombeau

      - Chez Nicolas Buon, A Paris 1604, In-12 (8,5x14,5cm), 127pp. ; 326pp. (2), relié. - I volumi IX e X dell'edizione collettiva del 1604 indirizzo di Nicolas Buon. Rare. Tutti i volumi edizioni collettive di Ronsard sono isolati, non troviamo che molto raramente soddisfatte, che approva Brunet, sostenendo che diversi volumi sono stati pubblicati separatamente (come indicato privilegiato) e non sempre allo stesso numero, e che di più, non uno porta il titolo di opere, e, talvolta, non il numero del volume. Ogni volume ha una propria pagina di impaginazione e titolo; quella del secondo volume non ha indirizzo e più simile a una sporgenza titolo (il volume della Biblioteca Nazionale di Francia ha questa stessa caratteristica). Un ritratto del primo volume Ronsard. stampa in corsivo. Binding piena pergamena d'epoca. colonna vertebrale liscio con titolo in penna nera. La mancanza di copertine in apertura del Volume, quindi di nuovo in parte staccato dalla rilegatura. Buona copia, relativamente fresco. Abbiamo trovato la ristampa di molte parti trincerate delle edizioni precedenti, pubblicati per la prima volta nel 1609 in folio edizione e l'edizione separata. L'ultimo volume contiene l'Epistola al lettore e il Compendio dell'arte poetica. Il primo volume della vita Ronsard da Claude Binet. "In questa edizione, la raccolta di pezzi mozzate è aumentato di 18 sonetti, due canzoni, una prefazione, 1 avvertimento, ode 1, 8 poesie ecc Tra i nuovi pezzi, nota quelle per le quali Du Bartas Ronsard non ha sapore molto stile "(Ronsard, tromba e arpa, 1985) - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Tomes IX, X de l'édition collective de 1604, à l'adresse de Nicolas Buon. Rare. Tous les tomes des éditions collectives de Ronsard se trouvent isolés, on ne les trouve que très exceptionnellement réunis, ce que cautionne Brunet, arguant que les différents tomes étaient édités séparément (ainsi que le précise le privilège) et pas toujours au même nombre, et que de plus, aucune ne porte le titre d'Oeuvres, et quelque fois pas de tomaison non plus. Chaque tome possède sa propre pagination et sa page de titre ; celle du second tome n'a pas d'adresse et ressemble davantage à un faux-titre (le volume de la Bibliothèque nationale de France possède cette même particularité). Un portrait de Ronsard au premier tome. Impression en italiques. Reliure en plein parchemin d'époque. Dos lisse avec titre à la plume noire. Manque les pages de garde en début de volume, de ce fait dos en partie désolidarisé de la reliure. Bon exemplaire, relativement frais. Table du tome IX : Discours des miseres de ce temps. Continuation dudit discours. Institution pour l'adolescence du roi Charles neuvieme. Discours à G. Des-Autels. Autre à Loys des Msures. Remontrance au peuple de France.

        Graecorum veterum selectae ac breves Epistolae.

      Apud Aloisium Zanettum, Romae [Rome] 1604 - 16mo, pp. 54, [2, blank], 68, [2, blank]. Later vellum, boards bordered with a double gilt fillet, spine infilled with gilt pallets, black morocco label, edges red. Some browning and spotting, top margin occasionally shaved just touching the page number. Vellum somewhat darkened and label a little chipped. Amorial bookplate of the Syston Park library (cut down to fit) to front pastedown. A rare reprint of a collection of excerpts from ancient Greek letters, with following Latin translation, originally published by Morel in Paris several decades earlier and often reprinted; it was almost certainly in regular use as a schoolbook. The epistolary selections are in this edition followed by (though no mention is made on the title-page) the sayings of the seven sages (i.e. Thales, Solon, Cleobulus, et al). Worldcat locates only one copy, at the Biblioteca Nazionale Centrale in Rome, though there is also a copy in the Deutsches Archaeologisches Institut. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Ex officina Plantiniana, Apud Ioannem Moretum 1604 - - Ex officina Plantiniana, Apud Ioannem Moretum, Antverpiae ( Anvers) 1604 - 1607, In-4 (18x25cm), 236pp. (3) ; (16) 124pp. (3), 2 ouvrages en un volume relié. - Nouvelle édition pour les Saturnalium (première édition en 1582, le privilège étant cependant de 1598 pour certainement la première illustrée) et édition originale pour le second ouvrage de Phillipe Ruben, Electorum. Marques de l'imprimeur en page de titre et au dernier feuillet libre. Jan Moret était le gendre de Plantin, il reprit l'imprimerie après le décès de ce dernier. Illustration : Saturnalium est illustré de 4 planches en double page, 4 planches simples avec 2 figures et 4 figures in-texte ; l'ensemble ne contient aucune signature, mais serait de la main de Van der Borcht l'aîné, lequel travaillait régulièrement avec jan Moret. Electorum contient 3 planches en double page et 2 figures in texte, l'ensemble par Cornelius Galle (certaines planches étant signées). Il manque une gravure sur double page. Reliure en plein parchemin d'époque. Dos lisse janséniste. Pièce de titre de parchemin beige. Un manque en tête et un en queue. Salissures sur les plats. Premier cahier détaché. La pièce de titre indique To. VII, ce volume faisait certainement partie d'un ensemble de textes de Juste Lipse ou autour de cet auteur. Bel exemplaire. Les Saturnales étaient de grandes fêtes romaines durant le solstice d'hiver (17 au 24 décembre, puis 25) ; les célébrations du Dieu Saturne étaient accompagnées de grande fêtes populaires débridées, mais aussi de spectacles, notamment de gladiateurs. Les barrières sociales étaient abrogées et les esclaves étaient servis par les maîtres. Juste Lipse rassemble tous les commentaires qui ont été écrits sur le sujet et les étudie. Une grande partie est consacrée aux spectacles différents donnés par les gladiateurs. Electorum est un florilège, un choix de ce qui se trouve de meilleur parmi les auteurs de l'Antiquité sur les rites antiques. Philippe Ruben fut le disciple de Juste Lipse, il lui rend hommage dans ces Poematia.
