        Theatri Machinarum Erster (-Sechster) Theill in welchem vilerley kunstliche Machinae [...] zu sehen sindt.

      Leipzig, Henning Gross, 1607-1614.. Oblong 4to (150 x 175 mm). 6 parts in one volume. With 7 part-titles, 6 of which engraved (one of them hand-coloured and two printed in red and black), the final part-title within woodcut border (Musica mathematica). 152 engraved plates, 2 of them hand-coloured and 20 folding, by H. Zeising and A. Bretschneider, with their initials on many plates. Woodcut head- and tailpieces and 2 text-figures. Slightly later vellum, lacking ties.. First edition of an extremely rare book on machinery and civil engineering, almost never encountered complete as thus. It provides a summary of Renaissance knowledge and contains a great variety of machines, also discussing Euclidean geometry as well as physics, mathematics and mechanics. The present copy is unusual for a work on theoretical music by Abraham Bartolus, which is here added at the end of part 6, in its second edition. It had appeared separately in 1608. Neither Berlin Kat. nor Feldhaus call for this addition. Pagination and signatures are continuous, and it is by the same publisher, although by a different printer, Johann Meuschke of Altenburg. - The personal copy of Peter Heinrich von Stralendorff (1580-1637), Vice Chancellor of the Empire (1624-37) under Ferdinand II, with his ink ownership inscription to first title and his autograph marginalia throughout the text, annotations to and sketches within several mathematical and mechanical plates, and 10 ff. of notes at the end. These extensive Latin notes concern cosmological problems, refer to Tycho Brahe, Copernicus and others, and include diagrams and horological questions. Stralendorff was acquainted with Johannes Kepler, who invited him to his second wedding (in his famous letter of 23 Oct. 1613, Kepler provided him with an amusing account of the different negotiations which preceded the marriage). - Binding shows insignificant soiling. Variable browning, spotting and staining to interior, first title with a couple of very minor marginal chips. - Berlin Kat. 1773. Feldhaus 1354. For Bartolus cf. Fetis I, 72; LOC Early Books on Music 25; BMC Printed Music, p. 126.

        Mundus alter et idem: sive Terra Australis ante hac semper incognita longis itineribus peregrini academici nuperrime lustrata. Auth: Mercurio Britannico [pseud.]

      [London and Hanau; sold:] Francofurti: apud hæredes Ascanii de Rinialme 12mo. [8] ff., 224 pp., plt., (lacks the maps).. [1607?] Imaginary voyage, false imprint with Americana interest. Imaginary voyages, such as that offered here, have occupied many writers throughout time, and have usually found a rich mix of gullible, pleased, and outraged readerships. Hall, the bishop of Norwich, found a very receptive audience for this satirical romance, as is demonstrated by the fact that there were three editions printed between 1605 and 1607 and several later editions in the post-1640 era. In his prefatory "Itineris occasio," Hall sets the frame of reference for his voyage by mentioning the feats of Columbus, Drake, and Magellan, and by discussing certain aspects of American explorations; among the maps, which are missing from this copy, are two that delineate the Americas. In this edition, the title-page is in the state with the diagonal (not vertical) shading of the pedestal; and quires ¶ and D are without catchwords on the rectos (i.e., they were printed at Hanau), while all other quires have catchwords (i.e., they were printed in London). => The title-page's claim to Frankfurt printing is simply specious. Provenance: Ownership inscriptions to engraved title-page, "Collegio Divio-Godr[anio] Soc[ietatis] Jesu" and "Oudin, S.J." Of the Collegio's library there was an early catalogue, for which the WorldCat record notes (in translation), "The Jesuits of Dijon are custodians of this library . . . The RP Oudin, Jesuit learned man of this city, is author of the preface . . . and [of] a poem . . . . to [the author]." Additionally, to front pastedown, the small booklabel of a Paris bookseller. Old vellum, neatly recased and hinges strengthened. Lacks the maps, but the engraved title-page and engraved plate of "writing" are present. These have light, thumbnail-sized waterstains at their foremargins, being the only leaves so marked, all others being quite clean. Priced approximately $2500 less than the last complete copy to sell at auction.

        GEDENKWAARDIGE REYS vanden Engelschen Capitain Robert Coverte, Eerst ter Zee; dog by Cambaye een ellendige Shipbreuck geleende hebbende, te Lande door Indostan, of Opper - Indien, Persien, Arabien, Asiatisch Turckyen, &c. met seer beswaarlijke

      omswervingen. Van Anno 1607, tot in 't Jaar 1611. Nu aldereerst uyt 't Engelsch vertaald. Text in Dutch or Flemish, translated from the English, 1706, 8vo, approximately 180 x 115 mm, 7 x 4½ inches, vignette on title page, folding map of middle east and India, 2 folding engraved plates, printed in black letter, pages: (4), 61, (5), bound in modern half calf over marbled boards, raised bands, gilt rules and gilt lettered morocco label to spine, new endpapers. Occasional light browning to pages, otherwise a very good clean tight copy of a rare travel book. There is very little information about Robert Coverte. Although styled on the title page as Captain Robert Covert, it seems he was steward on the 'Ascension' which sailed from Plymouth in 1607. The vessel ran aground going into Surat, the primary port of the Moghul Empire, but the crew escaped ashore in boats. An English merchant introduced them to the court of the Great Mogul at Agra arriving in December 1609. Coverte with his companions started out for home from Agra at the beginning of 1610 choosing to travel overland through Kandahar, Esfahan, and Baghdad. They reached Aleppo in December 1610 and then took a ship back to England arriving in April 1611. Coverte's account of his travels was first published in London in 1612 and again in 1614.

        Fabrica et usus instrumenti chorographici

      1607. ZUBLER, Leonhardt. Fabrica et usus instrumenti chorographici. Das ist, Newe Planimetrische Beschreibung: Wie man mit einem leichten und geringen Instrument alle Stätt, Gärten, Weyher und Landschafften, jedes in sein gewisse Lägerstatt und Proportion auffreissen und verjüngen soll. [8], 39, [1] pp. Illustrated with an engraved title, engraved dedicatory coat-of-arms and 13 soft-ground etchings by Dietrich Meyer. BOUND WITH: __________________. Novum Instrumentum Geometricum. Two parts in one. 65, [3] pp. Illustrated with 20 soft-ground etchings by Meyer. Small 4to., 190 x 150 mm, bound in contemporary Swiss vellum. Basel: Ludwig König, 1607. First Edition of Zubler's treatise covering the newly invented scientific instruments used in surveying. Three of these instruments were invented by Zubler himself "one of the earliest triangulation instruments" (Kiely). The soft-ground etchings depict: navigational measuring, land surveying of towns, landscapes and gardens, fortifications, measuring for artillery, and several detailed engravings of the instruments. The author, Leonhardt Zubler (1563-1609), Zurich mathematician, instrument maker, and goldsmith, not only describes in his text the three new instruments that he had invented, but he employed fellow Swiss artist Dietrich Meyer (1572-1658) a glass painter, portraitist and etcher to produce soft-ground etchings showing surveyors using Zubler's instruments. Zinner records that examples of Zubler's instruments have been preserved at the Germanisches National Museum. The Novum Instrumentum Geometricum bound in without signature A4, which it seems was never included in this copy. Some staining to a few pages, contemporary vellum covers soiled and worn in places. STC German Z-292 & Z-297. Berlin Katalog 1714 & 1713. Zinner, Instrumente 597. Cockle 947-949. Poggendorff II, 1420. Kiely, Surveying Instruments, 224-226, 328-232 (reproducing 3 of the plates).

        Les recherches de la France

      Edition partly original, plus Book VII, table of contents, many additions and a portrait by Thomas de Leu Pasquier. This portrait was made in 1583 in Troyes and had never been incorporated into editions. This is the last edition of the lifetime of the author. Full period calf. Back to nerves ornate. lack in head cover. A lack of leather on the top box. Upper joint split tail and head. Wormholes on a portion of the upper plate. Encyclopedic work and very famous, France's research differ among all works of this kind by its radical novelty. Pasquier can be considered the father of modern history, the nascent history as a discipline and then away from the legend and literature. Chapter VII, very different from the others because those are attached to research on ancient France, is interested in the formation of the French language; part is devoted to the Pleiades, which Pasquier was a member. Chapter VI was already involved in the origin of French poetry. Chez Laurent Sonnius A Paris 1607 In 4 (17x23,6cm) (18) 1175pp. (84) relié

        LA CIRUGIA Distinta in tre libri.

      Venetia, Presso Lucio Spineda, 1607-1610. Cm. 14,5x10, 2 opere in 1 vol., p. pergam. coeva, 23 cc.nn., 1 c.b., 182 cc.num., 1 c.b., marca tipograf. al frontesp. La prima opera e' divisa in 3 libri "Nel primo de' quali, si discorrono molte utili cose nella materia Cirurgicale. Nel Secondo, si tratta della anatomia, & sue parti, & si mostra quanto al Cirugico sia necessaria. Nel terzo, si scrivono molte ricette di diversi Autori. Con una gionta de Secreti nuovi, dell'istesso Autore". (la I ediz. è del 1570). Unito a: ROSTINI Pietro e Lodovico, "Compendio di tutta la cirugia", estratto da tutti coloro che di essa hanno scritto. Nuovamente ristampato, & con ogni diligenza corretto. Venetia, appresso Lucio Spineda, 1607, di cc.nn. 24, cc.num. 175, ornato da capilett. e finalini silograf.; il vol. è illustrato da 8 tavv. nel t. che raffigurano strumenti chirurgici, con descriz. a fronte. Questo Compendio è stato "ampliato di bellissimi discorsi dall'Eccell. Cavaliero M. Leonardo Fioravanti Bolognese: & aggiuntovi un nuovo Trattato a' professori di tal arte molto utile, e necessario.. con li dissegni de gli istromenti, che più si convengono à Cirugici". Cfr. Diz. Biografico degli Italiani,XLVIII,p. 108: "il bolognese Fioravanti ( 1517-88) fu certamente un personaggio anomalo nella medicina italiana del tempo: fu tra i pochi seguaci di Paracelso mentre in Italia perdurava il dominio delle teorie galeniche. Il suo tentativo di fare del medico il protagonista dell'intero processo terapeutico e il fatto che egli scrivesse in italiano i suoi trattati, furono spesso considerati lesivi della dignità della professione medica e lo esposero a persecuzioni" - De Renzi,III, p. 75 cosi' infatti lo descrive: "uno dei più celebri secretisti e ciarlatani del XVI secolo" - Krivatsy,4080 - Wellcome,I, p. 120 cita altre ediz. Aloni più o meno lievi interc. nel t., ma certam. un buon esemplare.

        Set of five maps of an imaginary Australia/Antarctic

      Ca. 1607.. The five maps from Hall's imaginary voyage to Terra Australis Incognita, the EARLIEST FICTITIOUS VOYAGE TO AUSTRALIA. Hall frames his voyage by relating the feats of Columbus, Drake & Magellan, and references their discoveries (the Straits of Magellan are clearly marked) to introduce his moral allegory describing a voyage to the great southern unknown continent. Sometimes seen as a prototype for Swifts "Gulliver's Travels", it is the story of Marcus Brittanicus and his 30-year stay in Terra Australis Incognita, a land consisting of four areas - one inhabited by gluttons, another by fools, a third by thieves and the fourth, Shee-landt, by women. Hall was a Cambridge-educated priest with a liking for verse and 'pungent' satire, who at an early stage in his career incurred the wrath of the Archbishop of Canterbury, who in 1599 ordered the burning of his satires on the ground of licentiousness. The text refers to 'Shee- landt' and the island of "Double-sex Ile", whose hermaphrodite inhabitants dress in a combination of men's and women's cloth and bear such names as Mary-philip or Peter-alice. It is clear why the Archbishop of Canterbury would be incensed.& & The maps are unsigned, but believed by Hind to be the work of Kip, and are most interesting. There is a 'general chart' bearing a resemblance to Ortleius's "Maris Pacifici", the first map of the Pacific Ocean, with a large unknown land occupying the bottom half of the map, while the top half has reasonable representations of the continents of North & South America (Virginia; C. de la Florida; California; Rio Grande; Patagones; C. de la Victoria; Peru; Brasilia; Saribano) Africa (Promontor Bone Spei; Monomotapa; Auzica; Abassia) , Asia (Malacca; Sian; Narfinga; Smagar; Maliupar; C.

        Set of five maps of an imaginary Australia/Antarctic.

      Ca 1607 - The five maps from Hall's imaginary voyage to Terra Australis Incognita, the EARLIEST FICTITIOUS VOYAGE TO AUSTRALIA. Hall frames his voyage by relating the feats of Columbus, Drake & Magellan, and references their discoveries (the Straits of Magellan are clearly marked) to introduce his moral allegory describing a voyage to the great southern unknown continent. Sometimes seen as a prototype for Swifts "Gulliver's Travels", it is the story of Marcus Brittanicus and his 30-year stay in Terra Australis Incognita, a land consisting of four areas - one inhabited by gluttons, another by fools, a third by thieves and the fourth, Shee-landt, by women. Hall was a Cambridge-educated priest with a liking for verse and 'pungent' satire, who at an early stage in his career incurred the wrath of the Archbishop of Canterbury, who in 1599 ordered the burning of his satires on the ground of licentiousness. The text refers to 'Shee- landt' and the island of "Double-sex Ile", whose hermaphrodite inhabitants dress in a combination of men's and women's cloth and bear such names as Mary-philip or Peter-alice. It is clear why the Archbishop of Canterbury would be incensed.The maps are unsigned, but believed by Hind to be the work of Kip, and are most interesting. There is a 'general chart' bearing a resemblance to Ortleius's "Maris Pacifici", the first map of the Pacific Ocean, with a large unknown land occupying the bottom half of the map, while the top half has reasonable representations of the continents of North & South America (Virginia; C. de la Florida; California; Rio Grande; Patagones; C. de la Victoria; Peru; Brasilia; Saribano) Africa (Promontor Bone Spei; Monomotapa; Auzica; Abassia) , Asia (Malacca; Sian; Narfinga; Smagar; Maliupar; C. Comori) and parts of Europe. It is accompanied by four smaller more detailed maps, quite littered with place names, intended to focus in more detail on unknown areas of the Southern land. Here we see a satirical mix of fact and fantasy- while there are more tenuous links to geographical fact in the names of Terra sub polaris & Aphrodysia Nova Gynia, (which is suggestive of the north coast of Australia), it is the incredible flights of fancy that dominate - 'Moronia' the land of the fools ; 'Ivronia; the land of the drunkards; 'Larcinia' for the gluttons, 'Plagianus' a land of the thieves; and 'Viraginia' a land of women, with cities named Amazonia, Erotium vel Amantina, and various other lascivious place names. The dating of the maps is difficult. The book, 'Mundus alter et idem sive Terra Australis', was a popular satirical romance that was printed in three editions between 1605 & 1607, and several later editions post-1640.

Marge inférieure du titre refait, quelques mouillures claires en début et fin d'ouvrage. Très bon état général. *** Edition Originale posthume de l'oeuvre complète (les deux premiers livres avaient déjà été publiés en 1600, à Venise, par G.B. Ciotti, sous le titre de I due primi giorni del mundo creato). Orné d'un rare portrait du Tasse, dessiné et gravé par Valesio, sur le titre, tiré d'une des premières éditions de la Jérusalem délivrée, éditée par Le Tasse lui-même et imprimée à Rome par G. Facciotto en 1593. "On doit regretter que Le Tasse n'est pas eu le temps de terminer ce poème, car les deux premières journées , auxquelles il avait mis la dernière main, renferment de très beaux morceaux." (Brunet) Il commença ses chants delle sette giornate del mondo creato, sujet traité par Du Bartas. Le Tasse fait sortir Eve du sein d'Adam, tandis que Dieu " arrosait d'un sommeil paisible les membres de notre premier père assoupi. " . Le poète amollit l'image biblique, et, dans les douces créations de sa lyre, la femme n'est plus que le premier songe de l'homme. (Chateaubriand, Mémoires d'outre- tombe, L.

        [American Bison]. [England?, 18th century?]. Original woodblock (9.2×12.7×1.9 cm) illustrating an American bison, cut in the endgrain, probably in boxwood, copied from the block cut for Edward Topsell, The historie of foure-footed beastes , London, William Jaggard, 1607, p. 51.

      For the 1607 edition: Nissen ZBI 4145; STC 24123; Wood, p. 599. An original woodblock copied from one first used to illustrate an American bison (often called an American buffalo) in Edward Topsell, The historie of foure-footed beastes, London, William Jaggard, 1607, p. 51, but here copied from the same block used in the 1658 edition, p. 40. Topsel's bison had been copied in mirror image from the very similar illustration in the first part of Conrad Gessner, Historiae animalium, Zürich, Christoph Froschauer, 1551. The present block is not cut on the plank but on the endgrain, like the wood engravings made famous by Bewick in the late 18th century, and the density of the fine-grained wood suggests it might be boxwood. It is often supposed that illustration blocks made from endgrain boxwood were invented by Thomas Bewick in 1768, but many authors have noted that the technique probably predated him by many years, though his work made it famous. Fortunately the only significant loss is a piece of the ground between the bison's feet. The crack continues without loss about 1 cm into the bison's belly. A few other minor defects do not affect the printing surface: scratches on the back and sides, and a 5 mm crack that does not reach the printing surface. The block is nevertheless in good condition and could be used for printing.

        Kst.- Karte, (ohne Titel- no title) von Franz Ritter, umgeben von 10 horologischen Diagrammen.

      . 1607, 12,5 x 15,5 ( mit den Randdarstellungen 28 x 34 cm.). Shirley, Mapping of the world, Nr. 270 Anmerkung. - Franz Ritter war Mathematiker in Nürnberg. Vorliegende Karte stammt aus einer Ausgabe von Franz Ritters, "Speculum solis ..".( erschienen von 1610 - 1640). Die eigentliche Weltkarte hat das Format 12,5 x 15,5 cm und ist umgeben von 10 weiteren Darstellungen zur Zeitmessung.. Die bei Shirley unter der Nummer 270 beschriebene Weltkarte stellt eine Vergrößerung der vorliegenden Weltkarte dar und wurde erstmalig 1610 im "Speculum solis .." veröffentlicht. Bei beiden Karten handelt es sich um sehr ungewöhnliche Karten, denn der Mathematiker Ritter projizierte die Welt vom Nordpol aus. "It is projected from the north pole as if it were the table of a sundial, with the land masses drawn to scale in proportion to their distance from this point. The map is thus highly distorted according to the normal conceptions but it is nevertheless mathematically correct." ( Shirley, Seite/Page 290). - Allseitig knapprandig ( short margins ).

      Amsterdam 1607 - Handcoloured copper engraving, 290 x 180 mm. (sheet size), with letterpress to verso, a lovely example. Beautiful decorated double-hemisphere map of the world from the Atlas Minor published by Jodocus Hondius in 1607. In 1604 Hondius and a business partner purchased the copper plates from Mercator's estate and continued to print grand atlas editions from them, supplementing the original plates with further maps of their own. A few years afterwards Hondius re-engraved the plates in a smaller format and published the Atlas Minor of 1607, of which this world map was the opening attraction. Hondius, born Joost de Hondt in 1563, was one of the foremost Flemish cartographers and engravers of his generation. From an early age he showed precocious ability in the geographical sciences, mathematics and a range of languages. Born into a Protestant family, Hondius was forced to flee for England in 1584, a move that played an important role in his career as a cartographic innovator. During his employment in London, Hondius met and conversed with leading explorers and scholars of the era, a valuable exchange that sharpened his geographical knowledge and curiosity. He eventually settled and flourished in Amsterdam, here publishing atlases and maps in several European languages. The letterpress to the reverse of this map is in English, and describes the discovery of the Straits of Magellan. As was common for the era, this map of the earth depicts an enormous antipodes filling the entire southern ocean. A few scant details derived from actual geographical discoveries are noted, such as Tierra del Fuego and the coastline of New Guinea. Interestingly, the place-name 'Beach' (derived from the travels of Marco Polo) is retained while the Solomon Islands are blended with the vast mass of Terra Australis. Overall the map is a remarkably balanced and elegant creation, with a beautiful engraved border sheltering Hondius' favourite Psalm engraved in latin: 'The earth is the Lord's, and everything in it; the world, and all who dwell therein.'.
