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.

Garcia de Cespedes, Andres:
Madrid: En casa de Juan de la Cuesta, 1606. - Two parts bound in one volume, paged continuously. 184 leaves. Lacks titlepage, preliminary leaf, and map. Small folio. Bound in full vellum in antique style, leather spine label. Several leaves tanned, though generally clean internally. Several 19th century library stamps. Missing leaves and map replaced in expert facsimile. Good. First and only edition of this early 17th-century Spanish navigation manual. García de Cespedes, who served as Royal Cosmographer to Felipe III and held the chair of cosmographer at the navigators' school in Seville, relied on some information on navigation and mathematics attributed to Pedro Nuñez, but the work is substantially his own. The work consists of separate sections, each with its own titlepage, devoted to navigation and hydrography, and woodcut illustrations of diagrams and instruments are found throughout. 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.

Stevens [Estienne], Charles and John Liebault [Liebaut].
1606. Richard Surflet (Trans.). London: Printed by Arnold Hatfield for John Norton and John Bill, 1606. Likely the second edition, as the first edition and no other is cited in Fussell as1600 ([29] ; various prefaces, addresses, summaries; 901; [26] tables). Quarto, 18cm x 23cm, in full leather (apparently rebacked at some early date, replaced endpapers), woodcuts illustrating, for example, stills and geometry of layouts. 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. An important foundation book on agriculture and health (also distilleries). Entirely presentable and quite a scarce book. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

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.

FIELD, RICHARD
London: Imprinted by Humfrey Lownes, for Simon Waterson, 1606. FIRST EDITION. Hardcover. 225 x 165 mm (8 7/8 x 6 1/2"). 8 p.l., 275, [1], 23 pp. FIRST EDITION. Limp vellum, ink titling on spine, remnants of ties. Headpiece and printer's emblem on title page, large historiated initials, historiated headpieces and tailpieces. Front pastedown with bookplate of John Sparrow, title page with early inscription of the Reverend Henry Wright. STC 10857; Lowndes I, 796. Vellum a bit rumpled and rather soiled, very small portions of the vellum missing in two places, but the original unsophisticated binding still entirely solid and with significant appeal as a period survival. A handful of gatherings with very faint dampstain in lower corner, trivial worming in bottom margin of three leaves, other insignificant defects in the text, but still an excellent wide-margined copy internally, the leaves quite fresh, with deep impressions of the type. This work constitutes a classic statement of the position of the Anglican church on such controversial topics as grace, the Bible, and the proper relationship of church and state, steering a cautious course between Catholicism and Lutheranism. Among the many "heretical" views denounced here is the notion that women could be priests. Of this book, Field's great work, DNB says, "It is needless to speak of a work which has long taken its stand by the side of Hooker among the grandest monuments of polemical divinity in the language." Despite the title, this volume contains (as it should) only four books (the fifth appeared in 1610), with an ap … [Cliquez ci-dessous pour une description complète]

The second part [40 unnumbered leaves] contains a separate title page – “An Epitomie of the lives and manners of the Roman emperors… taken out of the bookes of Sext. Aurelius Victor” – as well as numismatic portraits of the first 12 Roman emperors (Julius Caesar through Domitian). Early calf boards well rubbed, but treated and preserved; re-backed with gilt stamped spine.

ORTELIUS, Abraham (1527-1598)
London: John Norton, 1606. RARE MAP FROM THE SOLE ENGLISH EDITION OF ORTELIUS THEATRUM ORBIS TERRARUM Hand-colored copperplate engraving from Theatrum orbis terrarum Ortelius's Theatrum orbis terrarum appeared only once in English. Dedicated to King James I, the London edition of 1606 was published by John Norton. In addition to being the sole English edition of the Theatrum, the London redaction was limited to a relatively small print run, with the result that the atlas, as well as maps from it that bear English text on their verso, are exceptionally rare. The process by which the volume was prepared for publication was also unique in the history of cartography. The maps were printed in Antwerp, then shipped to London, where the text, newly translated into English by William Bedwell, was printed on the verso of each map by Eliot's Court Press. This singular situation is the only known instance in which maps were engraved in one country, their text added in another.. Book.
