Gonzalez de Holguin, Diego
Entre los primeros 50 libros impresos en Lima, el Vocabulario de Holguin. 1608. Ciudad de los Reyes (Lima). Francisco del Canto. In 8vo (204 mm x 145mm). 1 [blanca] + 3 [de 4] ff.+ 375. Pergamino de época, arrugado y sucio, en estricta condición original, claramente sujeto a uso en algún momento, sin embargo muy atractiva encuadernación que retiene su apariencia sobria y solida. Portada con margen externo restaurado afectando pocas palabras y montada, mancha de agua leve y amarronamiento, a pesar de esto, el papel continua fresco y fuerte. Los primeros impresos de Lima de por si son raros; los ocurridos en los primeros 30 años de la imprenta mas aun, pero el factor que realmente exacerba la rareza es la utilidad que se le dio a la obra. Es este destino de enseñanza que diferencia a los vocabularios de virtualmente cualquier otra obra impresa. La necesidad de comunicarse y entender la lengua de los nativos fue desde un principio preocupación de los Jesuitas, quienes entendieron que de la rapidez con que lograran hacerse entender dependería directamente la evangelización de los Indios. Dentro de los vocabularios, el de Gonzalez de Holguin de la lengua Quichua ocupa un puesto de honor, siendo uno de los mas extensos y estudiados sobre la lengua Quichua; es también el mas voluminoso publicado hasta entonces. Se trata del 42 libro impreso en Lima y uno de solo dos impresos en 1608 (según Medina). "Muy raro" (Sabin). La obra se compone de dos volúmenes, que a pesar de cada uno ser completo en si mismo, se hallan normalmente juntos y son complementarios. Se ofrece solo el primer v … [Click Below for Full Description]

VERGILIUS CARO, Publius; Annibale CARO (1507-1566), translator
Padua:: Pietro Paulo Tozzi,, 1608. 4to. 4to (220 x 161 mm). [8], 200 pp. Double column, italic types (the last page printed in a much smaller font). Engraved architectural border with Jesuit monogram and caryatids, 13 full-page engravings, comprising a portrait of Caro and an engraving at the head of each book, all within type-ornament borders; woodcut bandeau, initials & tailpieces. Quires Y and Z misbound in reverse order. Light staining in lower margin of title, occasional faint marginal foxing; else fine. Contemporary vellum, ms. title on spine (small repair to backstrip, later endleaves). Two small contemporary ms. correction slips bound in pointing out the binding error; small ms. "3" at foot of title. ***& & first edition thus illustrated of Caro's Italian adaptation of the Aeneid, first published at Venice in 1581. The twelve finely detailed engravings by an anonymous artist each depict, in a single scene, the principal episodes from the relevant book, in a form of illustration first used for editions of the Aeneid in the mid-16th century, and dubbed by Werner Suerbaum the “Argument Type”(Argumentum-Typus), in the Latin sense of argumentum, a concise statement of contents. Identified within the plates by captions in Italian, the characters reappear in different foreground or background positions to denote various points in time, beginning generally at the lower right and ending at the upper left. The foreground figures, denoting action from the beginning of the book, are generally larger than those in the background, regardless of the significance of t … [Click Below for Full Description]

Giovanni Antonio MAGINI (1555 - 1617)
Questo esemplare, sebbene non presenti nessuna variante di lastra rispetto alla mappa successivamente inserita nel Italia edita da Fabio Magini nel 1620, è di tiratura antecedente alla pubblicazione dell'atlante. La carta si presenta rifilata ed incollata su supporto cartaceo coevo, ed era inserita in un atlante composito che conteneva carte del Florimi, del Bonifacio e di altri autori, tutte databili tra la fine del XVI e l'inizio del XVII secolo. E' pertanto assai probabile che l'opera sia di una tiratura antecedente. Bologna Bologna 455 360

Giovanni Antonio MAGINI (1555 - 1617)
Carta geografica tratta da "L'Italia" a cura di Fabio Magini, edito a Bologna tra il 1620 ed il 1640. La carta della Sicilia di Magini è tra le più recenti dell'opera maginiana. Secondo alcuni scritti dell'archivio del Magini apprendiamo chje il 6 febbraio 1604 la carta era una dell 6 che mancavano. Il disegno gli arrivò forse proprio nel 1604; un grande disegno in 5 fogli inviatogli dai signori Giurati di Messina dalla quale l'incisore Benjamin Wright intaglio la carta dell'isola. Tuttavia tale carta era piuttosto povera di toponimi e scarsa di idrografia e orografia. Il magini si servì pertanto delle notizie trovate nell acrart di Mercatore e quella di Gastaldi per completare l'opera che fu inserita nell'atlante. Incisione in rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Bologna Bologna 480 380

GRISALDI M.
Perusiae, apud Augustos, 1608 in-12, leg. coeva in piena pergamena floscia, pp. 156. Stemma calcografico sul front. Altro emblema - in xilografia - a c. A12v. Leggermente rosicchiato il margine superiore della copertina posteriore, per il resto ottime condizioni. Prima edizione. Marco Antonio Grisaldi (1594 ? 1646) fu professore di medicina pratica presso l?Università di Perugia. Il suo nome, però, è legato all?astronomia, in quanto pubblicò alcuni scritti tesi a sfatare la superstizione secondo cui le comete erano portatrici di disgrazie. Il più interessante è questo ?Cometologia contra portentosam cometarum apparitionem? che è censito in soli 4 esemplari in ICCU. Riccardi I, c. 633. Cantamessa "Astrologia ins & outs", scheda n. 3409: "Importante opera del matematico Grisaldi diretta [...] a negare che il passaggio delle comete sia apportatore di disgrazie [...] La cometa oggetto dell'opera è quella di Halley in uno dei suoi passaggi".

PORTA, Giovanni Battista della
Rome: Ex Typographia Reu, Camerae Apostolicae, 1608. First edition. A very fine copy of “the most comprehensive view of the applications of distillation of the period” (Norman). “This book is as rare as beautiful. Ferguson, speaking of the reimpression (Strassburg, 1609), says that ‘the Roman edition is a much finer book.’ (Duveen). <br/><br/> & “Porta published in 1608 at Rome a work on distillation, its methods, apparatus and applications, which is of interest as giving a more comprehensive view of the application of distillation in the sixteenth century than is found in any other work of the period.” (Stillman, The Story of Early Chemistry, pp. 350-51).<br/><br/>& “The first and longest, and the most fully illustrated, of the nine books deals with different forms of stills. Porta describes various forms of distilling apparatus for various uses including the preparation of essential oils, on which Forbes says he is a very good authority having had occasion to observe the industry in Naples. Porta was the first to give yeilds from different materials. He also deals with various stills designed to produce different strengths of alcohol, all with air cooled condensers; one still is heated by the sun. In the same spirit as his <i>Physiognomonia</i> and <i>Phytognomonica</i>, in one section he compares the stills and their functions with animals. Hot things require a still with a short thick neck, just as nature has given ‘angry and furious creatures’ like the bear and the lion short strong necks.

GALILEI, Galileo.
Rare first edition in the original Italian of Galileo's early treatise on mechanics, a precursor to the research that he would present in his Discorsi. This popular treatise, widely circulated in manuscript form, is effectively a "bridge between statics and dynamics," and according to Drake, "far superior to other available works on the subject" (Galileo on Motion and Mechanics, p. 137).<br/><br/> "Galileo presents... the analysis of simple machines... in an unusual way. He is justly celebrated in this tract for his use and explication of the principle of virtual velocities" (Clagett in Drake, viii). Incorporating elements from Aristotle, Archimedes, Pappus, Philoponus, Jordanus and others, Della Scienza Mecanica offers "a coherent and illuminating exposition of the foundations of mechanics." Drake explains that while little of the content of Della Scienza Mecanica found its way into the Discorsi (with the exception of a discussion of the lever, Galileo omitted the time-honored topic of simple machines, choosing to emphasize his newer findings on dynamics), the Scienza shows "unmistakable novelty," and represents an important stepping stone in Galileo's intellectual development; early investigations into conservation of energy and the principle of inertia can be traced here. <br/><br/> Della Scienza Mecanica is based on a series of lectures on aspects of statics and of simple machines delivered by Galileo for his pupils at Padua in the 1590s. In Drake's estimation, the text was most unlikely to have been revised after 1608, and thus "its essential content may be considered … [Click Below for Full Description]

DE GHEYN, Jacob; Gheyn, Jacob de
1608. DE GHEYN II, Jacob. Maniement d'Armes. Three parts in one volume. Engraved title-page, 3 ff., 42 plates; 2 ff., 43 plates; 3 ff., 32 plates. Altogether 118 plates engraved by Jacob de Gheyn II. Small folio, 343 x 256 mm, bound in early nineteenth-century English polished beige calf, gilt; rebacked in the style of the period. Amsterdam: Henry Laurens, 1607 (changed in MS to "1608" as commonly). First Edition in French, printed in the same year as the first Dutch edition. Jacob de Gheyn II (1565-1629), Dutch painter and graphic designer, who is known to have influenced Rembrandt, used images in the present volume for his 1642 painting of "The Company of Frans Banning Cock Preparing to March Out" (a.k.a. The Nightwatch). De Gheyn, through his scores of prints and drawings, is credited with leading Dutch art from its decorative Mannerist style toward naturalism. At the close of the sixteenth century and the beginning of the seventeenth, a growing interest developed in military tactics and ways of using different types of weapons. This superbly illustrated manual for the exercise of military arms, dedicated to Prince Maurice of Nassau, specifically demonstrates the musket and pike drill. The original drawings were commissioned about ten years earlier by Jan van Nassau-Siegen. The manual was intended as a training guide to instruct officers on how to handle arms effectively and correctly. It showed each position for the deployment of a variety of weapons. De Gheyn's work offers a unique glimpse into warfare as waged in the Thirty Years War and even the English Civil War. Th … [Click Below for Full Description]

London: Robert Barker, 1608. [6], 190, 181, [11]. The true first edition of the "Judas Bible" named for the typographical error in John 6:67 where Judas is substituted for Jesus. As in the case of typical Geneva Bibles, Genesis 3:7 has the Lord making them :"breeches" instead of clothing. Ruth 3:15 here has "she" which is correct though later editions of the King James 1611 to 1614 inexplicably did not reset the type until late in 1614 when "she" became standard for the King James Bible. Expertly Quarto edition rebacked over 18th Century Calf with gilt lettering on red morocco label. Bible engraved title page is mounted, List of BIble Names is not complete. top edge trimmed, some browning and soiling, with some closed tears though the Bible text is readable throughout. Pages are often misnumbered but the passages are complete. The last section is the Apocrypha and there is a torn missing part of the page on the Historie of Susanna and Bel and the Dragon measuring about 6" x 5". Many in text illustrations (18 in Old Testament) from the Garden of Eden location, the ark, all the furniture of the Tabernacle; a sleightly larger than half page map of the Israelites and their enemies in the land of Canaan, and another map of the locations of the 12 tribes; Several of Solomon's Temple, and at the Book of Job there is a 17th Century insert of Job and his three friends. On the blank page preceding the list of proper names in the Bible there is an interesting account of previous ownership all from the 17th Century.
