"This made him decide that he had stretched his luck far enough and that he had better stay home" (Masselman page 116). The narrative of this voyage was written by Roelof Roelofsz and was translated by Artus for both the German and Latin editions of De Bry. The second is Jan Harmensz Bree's account of the voyage to the East Indies in 1602-1604, under the command of Admirals Sebald De Weert and Pietersz to Ceylon, where de Weert met his death at the hands of the Maharajah of Kandy.

Topsell was not a naturalist himself, and his worked was derived from the authority of earlier works. In doing so, Topsell repeats various amusing and now obviously fantastic features of animals, including the misbelief that Apes are scared of snails, and that Elephants worship the sun and the moon. Likewise, Topsell includes accounts of mythological creatures, showing only some scepticism when it comes to the existence of the Hydra.

ZONCA, Vittorio
Padua, 1607. FIRST EDITION. Engraved title and 42 full-page engravings. Contemporary vellum, remnants of ties, title in ink on spine; signature and date (eighteenth century) crossed out on title, initials and notation to front and back paste-downs, very minor spotting and browning, overall an excellent copy. First edition. This was the first of many works detailing and illustrating machinery (including those by Ramelli, Besson, Strada, etc.), all based upon the unpublished Trattado di architectura by Francesco di Giorgio Martini (1439-1501). Indeed, according to Norman, even Leonardo da Vinci had owned and annotated a copy of Francesco's treatise. Zonca's images, copied by many later writers, include inventions for mills such as a water mill running silk-spinners and a water-powered grain mill operated on a boat moored in a river, copper plating and printing presses, a barbeque spit turned by gears and a windmill, as well as a perpetual motion machine. "The work is noted for containing the first printed illustration of a gig-mill for raising nap on cloth, and for spreading knowledge of the mangle" (Norman). Zonca (1568-1602) was an Italian mechanical engineer. His book on machines went through four editions, and some of the plates were even published in a 1627 Chinese work on European mechanical arts, Qiqi Tushuo by Johann Schreck and Wang Zheng.

Euclid - Clavius, Christophorus
Frankfurt, Nicolaus Hoffmann für Jonas Rhodius, 1607. 2 Bände. Ca. 19 x 11,5 cm (Band 1); Ca. 20 x 12 cm (Band 2). 64 Blätter, 671 Seiten; 680 Seiten. Mit 2 (wiederholten) Holzschnittdruckermarken und zahlreichen Textholzschnitten. Halblederband um 1750 mit Buntpapierbezug, Rückenschild und Rotschnitt; Pergamentband der Zeit mit alt erneuertem Rücken und Rotschnitt. Beide Bände in 4. Ausgabe, noch zu Lebzeiten von Clavius (1537-1612) erschienenen. Vgl. Poggendorff I, 455. Clavius wurde 1637 in Bamberg geboren und war Lehrer der Mathematik am römischen Jesuitenkolleg. 1612 tötete ihn (laut Poggendorff) ein wild gewordener Stier auf der Straße. NDB III, 279: "Sein berühmtestes Werk Euclidis Elementorum libri XV (Rom 1574, mit einem 16. Band von Clavius selbst, beste Gesamtausgabe "Opera Mathematica", 5 Bände, Mainz 1612 [P]) hatte großen Einfluß und Beachtung nicht nur in Europa gefunden, sondern wurde zum Beispiel auch von seinem Schüler Matteo Ricci ins Chinesische übersetzt. Nicht wegen der Originalität der Erkenntnisse und Theorien, sondern wegen seiner bewunderungswürdigen Gabe, mit der er alle Erkenntnisse der Mathematik seiner Zeit erklärte und verständlich machte, erhielt er den Ehrentitel "Euklid des 16. Jahrhunderts"." Band 1: Einbandrücken berieben, Eintrag auf Vorsatz (datiert 1787), leicht gebräunt. Band 2: Rücken alt erneuert (Pergamentrücken sehr spröde), Schließbänder fehlen, Monogrammstempel verso Titel.

BONARELLI GUIDOBALDO.
Ferrara, Vittorio Baldini, 1607. Tre opere in un volume in-4ø; 4 cc., 172 pp. (ma 174: ripetuta nella numerazione la p. 112), 1 c. - 4 cc., 80 pp. - 136 pp. Titolo entro bella cornice incisa in rame nella prima opera con stemma dell'autore ed emblema dell'Accademia degli Intrepidi circondati da putti; inoltre 5 tavole a piena pagina nel testo. Nella seconda opera ritratto dell'autore ripreso dall'edizione aldina del 1583 e 11 incisioni, entro eleganti cornici, rappresentanti varie scene del dramma. La terza opera infine reca uno stemma inciso al titolo. Legatura coeva in tutta pergamena, titoli manoscritti al dorso. Bell'esemplare. Prima edizione della Filli, la favola pastorale pi-- celebre a fianco dell'Aminta e del Pastor fido del Tasso e del Guarini, fondatori di questo nuovo genere teatrale che, insieme al melodramma e alla commedia musicale, godette di enorme fortuna in periodo barocco. La presente edizione Š con ogni probabilit... la prima e pi-- rara; un'altra coeva, con gli stessi caratteri di stampa, dev'essere di qualche mese successiva. In testa ad ogni atto si trovano cinque tavole incise da Francesco Valegio che rappresentano scene del dramma. Quanto all'Aminta del 1590, il Serassi la giudicava una delle pi-- belle stampe che siano uscite dai torchi di Aldo il Giovane, ed i Volpi la scelsero come base per la loro edizione, certo la migliore eseguita fino a tutto il Settecento. Rara edizione originale infine della Clori, dramma pastorale ambientato a Careggi, in contesto mediceo. L'autore un anno prima aveva dato alle stampe una raccolta di poesie liriche fiori … [Click Below for Full Description]
