Carta geografica tratta da "L'Italia" a cura di Fabio Magini, edito a Bologna tra il 1620 ed il 1640. Incisione in rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. le carte del Lazio del Magini sono di complessa analisi. Egli divide per la prima volta la regione in due parti, usando come limite il corso del Tevere e dell?Aniene. La carta in questione comprende i territori a nord dei due fiumi ed è il prodotto dell?esame di diverse carte. L?autore infatti delinea la costa fino a Civitavecchia seguendo al carta del senese del Buonsignori, la parte della Tuscia è ispirata dal Bellarmato, la parte del lago di Bolsena e della Sabina è tradotta dal Danti, mentre per la campagna a nord di Roma si vede l?influenza della mitica carta di Eufrosino della Volpaia del 1547.Incisa da Benjamin Wright dopo il 1606. In ottimo stato di conservazione. "Magini's maps of Latium have a complex background. He is the first to divide this region into two parts, using the courses of the Aniene and Tiber rivers as borders. This particular map shows the territories situated to the north of these two rivers and is the outcome of the study of previous works.The coastline up to the town of Civitavecchia is after Buonsignori while the northwestern part of the region was inspired by Bellarmato. The area around the lake of Bolsena is taken from Danti and, finally, in the rendering of the countryside in the immediate whereabouts of the northern suburbs of Rome the influence of Eufrosino della Volpaia's 1547 map can be seen.

"The Cæremoniale Episcoporum (Ceremonial of Bishops) is a book that describes the Church services to be performed by Bishops of the Latin Rite of the Roman Catholic Church. Pope Clement VIII published on 14 July 1600 the first book to bear this name, a revision, in line with the renewal ordered by the Council of Trent, of the contents of books, called Ordines Romani, written from the end of the seventh century on to describe the ceremonies for the election and ordination of a Pope and to give indications for Mass and other celebrations by the Pope in the course of the year. The contents of these books were enriched over time. A work in two sections that became known as De Cæremoniis Cardinalium et Episcoporum in eorum diœcesibus (Ceremonies of Cardinals and Bishops in Their Own Dioceses) was added in the sixteenth century.

FABRI, Honoré.
First edition of Fabri's great work on optics which was the inspiration for Newton's work on light and colours as it was through this work that Newton learned of Grimaldi's discovery of the diffraction of light.<br/><br/> Fabri describes the rings of Saturn (he was involved in a long dispute with Huygens over their interpretation), difficulties of telescopic observations, and the construction of compound microscopes. He presents a theory of the blueness of the sky based on the principle of dispersion. There is also a careful exposition of theories of vision and the mechanics of the eye. <br/><br/> Fabri (1606-88), "mathematician and physicist, was born near Belley, France, educated at the Collège de la Trinité in Lyon, and ordained a Jesuit priest in 1635. He taught metaphysics, astronomy, mathematics, and natural philosophy at the Collège from 1640 until 1646, when he went to Rome, remaining there for the rest of his life. Fabri engaged in research and controversy on a wide range of scientific issues, including heliocentrism, the explanation of tides, and the circulation of the blood (he discovered the latter, independently of, and later than, Harvey, in about 1636); his writings on light and colors contributed to the science of optics" (Albert et al, Source Book in Ophthalmology, p. 100). <br/><br/> De Vitry 379; Macclesfield 754 (not in Honeyman, Horblit or Norman); Albert et al 709; Goldsmith F45; Jesuit Science in the Age of Galileo 12; Sommervogel III 515; Vagnetti EIIIb58; Wellcome III, p.3.. 4to: 223 x 156 mm.

The final chapter provides instructions for navigation in the Americas with sailing directions for the West Indies, Veracruz, and Havana, as well as instructions from Spain to Rio de la Plata, the Straits of Magellan, and the Pacific coast of South America. The text also includes documents relating to the dispute between Spain and Portugal regarding the line of demarcation between those countries' territories in the New World as initially created by papal decree in 1493.

BANCHIERI, Adriano
Paris: Fran?s Huby, 1606. Extremely rare first and only French edition (first Italian: 1592) of this satirical work on the nobility of the ass by one of the major musical theorists of the early Baroque. This is the earliest extant work and by far the most successful by Banchieri (1568-1634). The work ran into several Italian editions as well as translations into English and German, and spawned imitations such as Giulio Cesare Croce’s panegyrics on the pig and the ox.A member of the Accademia dei Floridi (later Filomusi) of Bologna, Banchieri took delight in turning received wisdom on its head and using traditional methods of learned discourse to prove paradoxes. In that sense his Noblenesse of the Ass (and its follow-up work, La nobilissima, anzi asinissima compagnia, Bologna, 1597) are part of the same tradition of satirical literature as Erasmus’ In Praise of Folly and Agrippa’s De incertitudine et vanitate scientiarum, which ends with a chapter in praise of asses to which Banchieri refers—although obliquely, since Agrippa’s works had been placed on the Index. However, Banchieri is clearly a child of the Counter Reformation, rejecting the use of Bible passages for satirical purposes. This edition not in OCLC, not in BL. No other French edition in OCLC or at BNF.*Wernli, Studien zum literarischen und musikalischen Werk Adriano Banchieris (1568-1634), 1981.. 53, (1) ff.

Surflet’s translation of L’Agriculture et Maison Rustique by Estienne and Liebaut (who, in turn, translated Estienne’s Latin), a ‘voluminous treatise’ similar in scope and intent to Barnabi Googe’s Foure Bookes of Husbandrie (1577) covering ‘family life, rural diversions, and the curious medical practices of the time, as well as the principles of farming, including the layout of a farm’ (Fussell, The Old English Farming Books, 12-13), in short, an early country handbook and encyclopaedia which, if it could not bring science fully to bear on farming and country life, at least sought to bring reason as the Elizabethans understood it.

Richard Field
London-Humfrey Lownes, 1606 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A very scarce first edition of Richard Field's Of the Church. Bound in vellum. First edition. Very scarce. Richard Field (1561-1616) was an English ecclesiological theologian associated with the work of Richard Hooker. Field was a close friend and associate of Hooker, who was the pre-eminent Anglican theologian of his day, and one of the most influential figures in Anglican history. Field's major work, Of the Church (1606), was an affirmation of the Church of England against the Roman Catholic Church. Field maintained that Anglican piety and polity continued the pre-Tridentine Catholic conciliar tradition. Field's principal work, Of the Church, Five Bookes, was first published in London in 1606, printed by Humfrey Lownes and dedicated to the archbishop of Canterbury, Richard Bancroft. In fact this volume contained only the first four books. Another impression, with many errata corrected, was printed by Nicholas Okes, probably in 1614, but still dated 1606 on the title-page, and with the printer's name omitted. -DNBWe can find only one copy currently for sale and this is the second edition at 1250.

Pope Paul, a lawyer-type individual vice a consensus diplomat, insisted on, for all practical purposes, a ubquitous ecclesiastical jurisdiction, which caused a number of quarrels between the Church and the secular governments of various states, notably Venice. In 1606, "Venice passed two laws obnoxious to Paul, one forbidding the alienation of real estate in favour of the clergy, the second demanding approval of the civil power for the building of new churches (in essence, a Venetian stance that the powers of the church must remain separate from those of the state). Two priests had been found guilty and committed to prison. Paul insisted that they be released to the Church. The Venetian position was ably defended by a canon lawyer, Paolo Sarpi, who extended the matter to general principles defining sepa … [Click Below for Full Description]
