        Riviera di Genova di Levante

      Bologna 1609 - Carta geografica tratta da 'L'Italia' a cura di Fabio Magini, edito a Bologna tra il 1620 ed il 1640. Una prima stesura delle carte della Liguria viene realizzata dal Magini nel 1597, basandosi su un disegno fornitogli dal prete Orazio Bracelli e su informazioni ricevute dal Duca Gonzaga. Completamente ignorate, apparentemente, le carte a stampa realizzate precedentemente. La stesura definitiva avviene nel 1609, elaborando il manoscritto del Bracelli con altri disegni fornitogli da due gentiluomo genovesi non meglio noti. Ignorata, anche in questo caso, fu la carta di J.B. Vrients, edita nel 1608 nel "Theatrum" di Ortelius, prima carta a stampa della sola Liguria. Le carte vennero alla luce nel 1609, ad opera del Wright. Le due carte separate delle Riviere costituiscono una novità assoluta, modello per tutti i cartografi successivi. Incisione in rame, in perfetto sttao di conservazione. Almagià pagg. 25/29. Dimensioni 480 385mm

        Del Primo (-sesto) libro de le Lettere di M. Pietro Aretino

      Paris: Matreo il Maestro, 1609. Later Edition. Hardcover (Vellum). Very Good Condition. 3 volumes in contemporary limp vellum, remains of ties, some discoloration to vellum, occasional creasing to a few early leaves, end papers rumpled and a little torn, the third book is lacking the final two pages of the table (ends at M), generally fine otherwise. 6 books bound in 3. [6], 283; [10], 325; [8], 362; [8], 296; [8], 338, [6]; [8], 301 leaves. One of the most singular figures in the Renaissance, Aretino was a poet, playwright, schemer, satirist, and pornographer who made a career out of infiltrating the highest levels of society and then alternately satirizing them in his writings, or blackmailing them. For a time his patron was Cardinal Giulio de' Medici, and he mocked Popes and would be popes, but in time he settled in Venice - the Anti-Rome. Ariosto called him "the scourge of Princes". He is remembered most for his satires and his letters which detail conversations with both the great names of the day as well as regular folk, both women and men. His ability to manipulate the reader of his letters - which were carefully chosen and probably always meant for publication - by constructing a compelling narrative with himself as central protagonist - changed epistolary collections forever. Size: Octavo (8vo). Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilo. Category: History; Erotica. Inventory No: 046398.

        [Insula Kildyn]. Troisieme Partie.

      Amsterdam: Cornelius Claesz (Cornille Nicolas), 1609. Map. Uncolored. Sheet measures 12.75" x 9.25 This rare map of Kildin Island and the Kola Peninsula, part of today's Murmansk Oblast of the Russian Federation, dates to 1609. The map covers the Island of Kildin as well as part of the Murmansk Fjord or Kola Bay. It beautifully rendered topography as well as soundings off the coast of Kildin. Towns are noted on the Kola Peninsula. Illustrations of men carrying boats, ships in the bay, as well as natives are included. These images refer to the explorations of Willem Barentz and his voyages during the Arctic explorations.<br><br>Text above the image describes part of the journey during the third voyage. It also makes reference to Jan Comeliszoon Rijp, the Dutch mariner who accompanied Barentz in his expedition to find the Northeast Passage. Upon discovering Spitsbergen, the ships ran into ice, hindering their progress. Barentz decided to continue around northern tip of Nova Zemblya, while Rijp returned to head back to the Netherlands, insisting that the northern tip of Nova Zembla was too dangerous. Barentz eventually did get trapped in the ice. He would eventually die at sea enroute to the Kola Peninsula aboard one of the two boats the crew used to excape. His crew would be later rescued by Rijp.<br><br>The map is in good condition with some staining on the sheet near the bottom right. Some edge wear and overall toning. <br><br>The French text describes part of the Arctic explorations of Willem Barentzs (c. 1550--1597), a Dutch navigator and cartographer. Conducted between 1594 and 1596, Barentzs' three voyages into the seas north of Siberia are widely considered the most notable of many European efforts in this period to find a northern sea passage to China and India. <br><br>Gerrit de Veer (c. 1570-1598), second mate to Barentzs, kept a journal where he describes the journeys in meticulous detail, including the discoveries of Spitzbergen, Bear Island, and Novaya Zemlya during the successful third voyage, which Barentzs piloted under the command of Jacob van Heemskerk. Perhaps the third voyage's most famous incident was when after the ship became entrapped in ice, de Veer, who was also the ship's carpenter, directed the dismantling of the ship and the subsequent construction of a cabin from its lumber in which the crew spent the winter.<br><br>Although Barentzs did not survive the trip back, de Veer and some of the other crew members journeyed home on open boats and were eventually rescued by Dutch ships. De Veer's journal was originally published in 1598 in Latin by Cornelius Claesz, one of the most significant Amsterdam publishers of the end of the sixteenth century. <br><br>A prominent publisher of early Dutch travel accounts, Claesz adopted de Veer's heroic tale and commissioned Baptista van Doetichum to produce engravings to accompany the text.

        Astronomia nova sev physica coelestis, tradita commentariis de motibus stellae Martis, ex observationibus G.V. Tychonis Brahe?. Faksismile.

      Prag / Bruxelles, / Gabriel Lebon, / 1968 1609 - Kl.2°, 1 Bl., 337 S., zahlr. Textabb., 1 Faltkarte, OLdr. mit Rückenschild, Min. gebrauchspurig. Kepler (1571-1630) erbte von Tycho Brahe eine Fülle von sehr genauen Datenreihen über die Positionen der Planeten. Die Schwierigkeit war, darin einen Sinn zu erkennen, denn wie das nebenstehende Bild beispielhaft zeigt, sieht es so aus, als würden manche Planeten Schleifen am Himmel vollführen. Das liegt daran, dass die Umlaufbewegungen der anderen Planeten von einer Erde aus betrachtet werden, die selbst die Sonne umkreist.Kepler konzentrierte sich darauf, die Marsbahn zu verstehen, doch zunächst musste er die Bewegung der Erde genau kennen. Dafür brauchte er eine Vermessungslinie. Er benutzte Mars und Sonne als Basislinie, ohne die genaue Umlaufbahn des Mars zu kennen. Auf diese Weise wurden die Positionen der Erde berechnet und von diesen der Umlauf des Mars. So konnte er seine Planetengesetze ohne Kenntnis der genauen Abstände der Planeten von der Sonne ableiten, weil seine geometrische Analyse nur das Verhältnis ihrer Abstände benötigte.Im Gegensatz zu Brahe glaubte Kepler an das heliozentrische System. Ausgehend von diesem Gerüst verbrachte er zwanzig Jahre mit sorgfältigen Versuchen und Überprüfungen, um eine mathematische Beschreibung der Planetenbewegungen zu finden, die zu den beobachteten Daten passt. Nach etwa zehn Jahren fand er die ersten beiden der drei Planetengesetze.Zweites Keplersches GesetzAls Nachfolger Brahes erhielt Kepler vollen Zugang zu dessen Aufzeichnungen. Im Jahr 1600 war das Werk des englischen Arztes William Gilbert De Magnete, Magneticisque Corporibus, et de Magno Magnete Tellure (?Über den Magneten, Magnetische Körper und den großen Magneten Erde?) erschienen, dessen Theorien zur magnetischen Anziehung Kepler sofort akzeptierte. Auf diese Weise gelangte er zu der Auffassung, die Sonne übe eine in die Ferne wirkende Kraft aus, die mit wachsender Entfernung abnehme und die Planeten auf ihren Umlaufbahnen halte, die Anima motrix. Dies war zu seiner Zeit ebenso spekulativ wie die Vermutung, zwischen den Bahnen der Himmelskörper und den platonischen Körpern bestehe ein innerer Zusammenhang. Der Gedanke der Fernwirkungskraft zusammen mit der Auswertung der Brahe-Beobachtungen führte Kepler zu der Entdeckung, dass die Bahn des Mars kein Kreis, sondern eine Ellipse ist. Dies ist nicht offensichtlich, da die Ellipsenbahnen der großen Planeten fast kreisförmig verlaufen. Kepler bemerkte auch, dass die Ellipse so im Raum angeordnet ist, dass einer ihrer Brennpunkte stets mit der Sonne zusammenfällt (erstes Keplersches Gesetz). Der zweite von ihm formulierte Satz besagt, dass eine von der Sonne zu einem Planeten gezogene Strecke in gleichen Zeiträumen gleiche Flächen überstreicht. Je weiter also ein Planet von der Sonne entfernt ist, desto langsamer bewegt er sich (zweites Keplersches Gesetz). Diese beiden Gesetze veröffentlichte er im 1609 erschienenen Werk Astronomia Nova (Neue Astronomie) bei Gotthard Vögelin in Frankfurt am Main. 1200 gr.

      Cornelius Claesz (Cornille Nicolas), Amsterdam 1609 - Side view of two of the ships used by Willem Barentsz in his third voyage during his Arctic explorations in search of the Northeast Passage. The text above the view describes the curious phenomenon illustrated in the top center, "For the sake of a marvelous Meteor, seen on the 4th day, in the year 1596, for each side of the Sun was another shining Sun, and two arcs of the sky passing through the three Suns: then two arches to heaven, Of which one was large round the Sun, and the other through the great circle, and the lower edge of the great circle was raised above the horizon 28 degrees". Possibly the first depiction of sundogs or parheliaThe event described here take place just a few days before the crew discovered Bear Island. The ships viewed here are possibly the two purchased by the town of Amsterdam, one to be captained by Jan Rijp and the other by Barentsz. The ships found themselves back on Bear Island on July 1. Barentz decided to continue around northern tip of Nova Zemblya, while Rijp turned back toward the Netherlands, insisting that the northern tip of Nova Zembla was too dangerous. Barentz eventually did get trapped in the ice. He would eventually die at sea enroute to the Kola Peninsula aboard one of the two boats the crew used to excape. His crew would be later rescued by Rijp. The French text describes part of the third journey during the Arctic explorations of Willem Barentzs (c. 1550--1597), a Dutch navigator and cartographer. Conducted between 1594 and 1596, Barentzs' three voyages into the seas north of Siberia are widely considered the most notable of many European efforts in this period to find a northern sea passage to China and India.

        Pentaestheseion, hoc est De quinque sensibus liber, organorum fabricam variis iconibus fideliter aere incisis illustratam, nec non actionem et usum, discursu anatomico & philosophico accurate explicata continens.

      Venedig: Misserino, 1609. First edition, exceptionally rare, of Casserius' second important contribution to the comparative anatomy not only of the ear and the vocal organs, as in his more common work of 1600/01 [De Vocis Auditusque Organis], but also of the other four sense organs and especially of the eye. The very fine anatomical plates for which this book is noted are both drawn and engraved by the Swiss artist Joseph Maurer, a pupil of Tobias Stimmer who lived in Casserius' house. The 12 plates pertaining to the ear are the same as those of Casserius' earlier work; they constitute "the first accurate pictorial presentation of the internal ear" (Lyle M. Sellers, Annals of Otology 68 (1959)). Those dealing with the other four sense organs are new. Among them, in the particularly important section dealing with the eye and vision (pp. 257-346) are the first pictorial representations of the conjunctival glands, later known as the Meibomian glands (cf. Garrison-Morton 1481). All the plates, according to Choulant-Frank, "are done with unusual care and are anatomically exact." Casserius' anatomy of the sense organs is of great importance in medical history, since for the first time he adds to a complete account of each human organ a full study of the same organ in various animal forms. Choulant-Frank never saw a copy of this first edition, describing only the Frankfurt edition of 1622, with the same number of plates but "reduced and certainly executed by another artist. Some of them are even reversed and show much inferior workmanship" (p. 224). "[Casseri's] second book, the Pentaestheseion, had great success among contemporaries as shown by the many reprints (Frankfurt, 1609, 1610, 1612, 1622; Venice, 1627) ... It is a 360-page volume dedicated to the Duke of Bavaria, Prince Maximilian. The introductory part consists of a letter to the reader in which Casserius reports that he was prompted to publication, despite a few malevolent critics, by the favorable reception of his first work. There is also a short laudatory poem by Caspar Bartholin, who had been Casserius's friend and student. The book contains five treatises devoted to each sense organ: touch (with 2 tables), taste (6 tables), smell (7 tables), hearing (12 tables), sight (6 tables). The treatise on hearing is a reprint of the one published on the same subject in De Vocis Auditusque. Before the treatises, there is a long philosophical discussion on the nature and role of sense organs in which Casserius maintains that touch is the fundamental sense from which all the other derive, and that all sensations go to the brain. "At variance with the prevailing opinion, Casserius was the first to state that the touch organ resides in the dermis and not in the epidermis. He describes the palm of the hand and the sole of the foot with their aponeuroses, muscles, and nerves, also providing the first illustrations of these regions. Casserius, unlike his contemporaries, does not consider the tongue as made up by a single muscle. He describes and illustrates the extrinsic muscles of the tongue and the suprahyoid and infrahyoid muscles, but he considers as a single nerve, at their exit from the skull, the vagus and the glossopharyngeal nerves. Furthermore, he mistakes for a nerve the main excretory duct of the submandibular gland, later discovered by Wharton in 1656. Concerning the sense of smell, he puts forward the strange idea that the olfactory mucosa is continuous with the brain dura mater through the foramina of the cribrous lamina. He describes fairly well the muscles of the nose and the paranasal sinuses and gives an accurate description of the skeleton of the nose, stating that there are three nasal conchae and that the lower one is a separate bone. According to Hyrtl, Casserius is the first to use the term nasal concha, still retained in the modern anatomical terminology. "Sterzi credits Casserius with having provided the first correct description of the eye and of its accessory organs; he gives a detailed account of the orbit and of the six eye muscles, correcting a mistake by both Galen and Vesalius, who described as a normal human structure the coanoides, a muscle that is present only in animals. Again, Casserius states that the optic nerve is surrounded by a double sheath provided by the dura and by the pia mater, respectively. Concerning the origin of tears, he concludes that they are produced both by the brain and by the lacrimal gland. As in the previous work, the tables of the Pentaestheselon show a few morphologic details not reported in the text. In fact, Sterzi notes that, in some of the figures illustrating the eye lids, there are the tarsal glands whose discovery is ascribed to Meibom (1666)" (Riva et al). "Julius Casserius (c. 1552-1616) was born in a poor family in Piacenza in 1552. As a young man, he moved to Padua and soon after, he became a servant to Fabricius, a noted anatomist and professor at the Universitá Artista, who quickly became his mentor. Casserius eventually attended the University of Padua and received a degree in medicine and philosophy. In the following years, a rivalry ensued between Casserius and his former mentor as they competed for teaching privileges, conflicted on dissection philosophies, and disregarded each other's contributions in publications. Tragically, the conflict between these two influential anatomists may have overshadowed their contributions to the study of anatomy. Casserius was one of the first physicians to develop a comprehensive treatise on anatomy. Unfortunately, while Casserius prepared several tracts identifying novel structures, he did not live to see his master collection published as he died suddenly at the peak of his career in 1616. Interestingly, the English anatomist and surgeon John Browne used copies of Casserius' work for his own anatomy text and was labeled a plagiarist. It is the contributions from such pioneers as Casserius on which we base our current understanding of human anatomy" (Housman et al).

        Canon Triangulorum Sphaericorum: Brevissimus simul ac facilimus quamplurimisq[ue] exemplis optice proiectis illustratus, in gratiam Astronomiae, Cosmographiae, Geographiae, Horologiographiae, &c. Studiosorum iam primum editus.

      Mainz: J. Albinus, 1609. First edition of this very rare work on trigonometry in which the author speaks of François Viète's recent use of analysis. Van Roomen is most commonly known for having proposed a problem in 1593 which involved solving an equation of degree 45. It was the solution of this problem in 1595 that established François Viète as one of the most important mathematicians of his day, as he showed the relevance of trigonometry to solving algebraic equations. As a result of this a friendship grew up between Viète and Roomen. Viète proposed the problem of drawing a circle to touch 3 given circles to Roomen (the Apollonian Problem) and Roomen solved it using hyperbolas, publishing the result in 1596. In the preface ('De operis praesentis ordine') the author speaks of Viete's recent use of analysis ('Hisce incommondis ante paucos annos Franciscus Vieta ... medelam attulit, novis propositis praxibus...'). "In his terminology van Roomen imitated Viète, using the expressions 'prosinus' and 'transinuosa' for tangent and secant, respectively." (Busard in DSB). ABPC lists just one copy auctioned the past 30 years: Macclesfield (17th calf, browned, head of title torn away affecting line border). The Macclesfield description mentions that the work is in two parts but the 'second' is actually a separate printing from 1607 of sines, tangents, and secants, taken from Clavius. 4to (243 x 176 mm), contemporary vellum, pp [12] 9-315, gathering b-f with some browning due to the paper, else fine and clean, one wormhole to the inner marging of the last 70 pages and rear board - in all a very good and unrestored copy.

        Trois livres appartenans aux infirmitez et maladies des femmes.

      Paris, Jacques du Puys, 1609. ____ Si "la femme n'a pas un corps mutilé, ni imparfait", c'est un "animal faible et maladif". C'est donc ici un traité complet de médecine pour les vierges, les femmes grosses, les accouchées... Titre d'un chapitre : "Les débilités et faiblesses qui surviennent aux nouveaux mariés pour l'usage immodéré de Vénus." Une part importante traite ainsi de la reproduction.

Cette Nicole Liebault est l'auteur de : "Misères de la femme mariée, où se peuvent voir les peines et tourmens qu'elle reçoit durant sa vie". On peut se demander si ce Jean Liebault était un bon mari ? A la fin, achevé d'imprimé d'août 1610. Cette édition en français, une traduction du "De sanitate, faecunditatae et morbis mulierum", a paru pour la première fois en 1582. Quelques ressauts de cahiers, exemplaire un peu déboîté, mais bon exemplaire. ***** A rare work on feminine health. Woman, according to Liebault is a "weak and sickly animal."

        The Art of Dyalling in two Parts. The first shewing plainly, and in a maner mechanichally to make dyals to all plaines, either Horizontall, Murall, declining, reclining or inclining, with the theoricke of the Arte. The second how to performe the selfe same, in a more artificall kinde, and without use of Arithmeticke, together with concaue and conuex Dyals, and the inserting of the 12 signes, and the howres of any other country in any dyall, with many other things to the same Art appertaining.

      London: Printed by N[icholas] O[kes] for Simon Waterson, 1609. First edition, very rare, of one of the earliest English books on dialing, the last of four books published by the famous English mathematician during his lifetime. It is unusual to find such early English scientific books in fine condition and in a contemporary binding as here. Only four other complete copies have appeared at auction in the last 50 years, all except the Horblit copy being in later bindings. ?Horblit sales catalogue, Sotheby's 1974, lot 126; Frank Streeter, Christie's 2007, lot 42. Not in Macclefield or Honeyman. Provenance: armorial bookplate of the Rt. Hon. Algernon Capell, Earl of Essex, 1701, on verso of title, stamp of Christopher St. J. H. Daniel on two endpapers. "Like many mathematical practitioners, Blagrave found steady employment in designing, erecting and repairing sundials for churches, mansions and gardens. And since dialling was a favourite amateur pursuit, a text-book and a teacher were always in demand. Blagrave is exceptionally clear and practical, and explains the various ways in which the meridian can be established by relative positions of prominent stars or with simple improvised instruments" (Taylor, Mathematical Practitioners, p.327). John Blagrave (1558? - 1612) was born in Reading, but the date of his birth is unknown: probably early in the 1560s. He received his early education in his native town, later entering St. John's College, Oxford. He did not, however, take a degree, but retired to his patrimony at Southcote House (Reading) where he became a self-taught professional mathematician and became esteemed, as Anthony Wood declares, "the flower of mathematicians of his age." He accepted engagements as land-surveyor, and for the design, erection and repair of sundials. He also devised many fine astronomical instruments and surveying instruments, some of which he made and engraved himself, and made them available for sale in London at the 'Sign of the Swan' near St. Paul's or at William Matts, the stationer's, at the 'Sign of the Plough over against St. Dunstan's Church Fleet Street.' Blagrave's instruments were described in four published works: The Mathematical Jewel, showing the making and most excellent use of a singular instrument so called, in that it performeth with wonderful dexterity whatever is to be done either by quadrant, ship, circle, cylinder, ring, dial, horoscope, astrolabe, sphere, globe or any such like heretofore devised (1585); Baculum, Familliare Catholicon sive Generale: a book of the making and use of a staff newly invented by the author, called the Familiar Staff, as well for that it may be made usually and familiarly to walk with as for that it performeth the geometrical mensurations of all altitudes (1590); Astrolabium Uranicum Generale: a necessary and pleasant solace and recreation for navigators in their long journeying (1596), which shows him to have been an early English convert to Copernicanism; and The Art of Dialling (1609). He also left an unpublished autograph manuscript on mathematical topics, preserved in the library of Lambeth Palace.

Upper jaw split tail and head 6cm 2cm. Caps threadbare. The two novels are romantic tragedies, both preceded by a gallant and relatively ardent epistle to Madame de Lerm, Anne Calonges. Following the first novel, there is a series of poems which the last is a fundamentally erotic poem entitled enigma. ITE was a novelist Languedoc whose ornate and lyrical style is relatively complex. His way is relatively modern and original in the early seventeenth. Its literature seems nourished by Greek-Latin and Italian novelists of the sixteenth, but with a much more tragic and dramatic accent. His works we hastily classified as minor an important turning point for the history of baroque novel in France. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

      Venice: Nicolas Misserino, 1609. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. Large folio (410 x 272 mm), [10], 3-346, [18] pp., including engraved title and 33 full-page engravings within page numbering. Signatures: a? A-2X? 2Y?. Errata and colophon on 2Y6r.

Provenance: Michele Raby, Torino (large armorial bookplate to front pastedown). An outstanding copy in original binding and with ample margins of one of the rarest of all important 17th century anatomical works. ----NLM/Krivatsy 2200; Waller 1810; not in Cushing, Osler, Wellcome, or Norman. - EXTREMELY RARE FIRST EDITION of Casserius' second important contribution to the comparative anatomy not only of the ear and the vocal organs, as in his work of 1600/01, but also of the other four sense organs and especially of the EYE. This first edition of Pentaestheseion is much rarer than the Ferrara, 1601, De Vocis on the ear and voice, and in fact so rare that Choulant-Frank never saw a copy. They note: "The original edition is said to have contained a copper-title and thirty-three plates...," and proceed to describe the Frankfurt edition of 1622, with the same number of plates but "reduced and certainly executed by another artist. Some of them are even reversed and show much inferior workmanship" (p. 224). The very fine anatomical plates for which this book is noted are both drawn and engraved by the Swiss artist Joseph Maurer, a pupil of Tobias Stimmer who lived in Casserius' house. The 12 plates pertaining to the ear are the same as those of Casserius' earlier work; they constitute "the first accurate pictorial presentation of the internal ear" (Lyle M. Sellers, Annals of Otology, LXVIII, No. 3, Sept. 1959). Those dealing with the other four sense organs are new. Among them, in the especially important section dealing with the EYE and VISION (pp. 257-346) are the first pictorial representations of the conjunctival glands, later known as the Meibomian glands (cf. Garrison-Morton 1481). All the plates, according to Choulant-Frank, "are done with unusual care and are anatomically exact." Casserius' anatomy of the sense organs is of great importance in medical history, since for the first time he adds to a complete account of each human organ a full study of the same organ in various animal forms. OCLC/WorldCat list the following copies in US libraries: McGoogan Library of Medicine, Nebraska; Bernard Becker Medical Library, St. Louis; Cornell University Library, Ithaca; Huntington Library, Art Collections & Botanical Gardens; University of Southern California, Norris Medical Library, LA.

Sedano en la biografía de Argensola, que va al principio del tomo III del Parnaso español, dice: No tan solo la poesía, sino la historia le debe grandes progresos, como lo prueba la célebre Historia de la Conquista de las Malucas obra que en la exactitud y elocuencia tiene muy pocas que la compitan en la nación. Contiene este libro noticias muy importantes sobre los viajes hechos por los españoles y portugueses a las Indias y documentos interesantísimos sobre el célebre Magallanes"." "Few narratives are written with so much judgment and elegance. one of the most important works for the history of the Philippine Islands". (Cox I, 284).Includes references to Japan, China & South America. Folio; XVIII century calf. FIRST EDITION OF THIS HISTORY OF SPAIN'S FIGHT FOR CONTROL OF THE MOLUCCAS. Regarded by Hill as an "essential work for the history of Spanish and Portuguese exploration in the East Indies," Argensolas's narrative is noted for its breadth of knowledge and over- all grasp of world politics. "In his digressions on people and places, (writes Lach in Asia in the making of Europe, III, pp. 311-12), Argensola adds significantly to the stockpile of information on Asia, especially on the Moluccas, Java, Sumatra, and Ceylon. His book also ties together neatly the affairs of Europe with struggles in the overseas areas, for he sees the spice trade in its world wide ramifications and makes his reader acutely aware of its immediate and potential interest for Japan and China." There are also in this work numerous American references including the voyage of Sir Francis Drake (pp.105 - 108), Pedro Sarmiento de Gamboa&#146;s voyage of exploration to the Straits of Magellan (pp.119 - 131), special mention of Peru, the Patagonian giants, and Columbus. Argensola (1562 - 1631), royal chaplain and rector of Villahermosa, was commissioned to write this highly praised work by the Council of the Indies on the occasion of the Spanish recapture of the Moluccan islands of Ternate and Tidore in 1606. It is based on primary sources consulted in the archives of the Indies and thus comprises significant historical documentation. 1 volumen(es)/volume(s) (10) + 407 páginas [Attributes: First Edition]

        Problematum Astronomicorum Libri Septem.

      Venice: Bernardo Giunta & G.B. Ciotti, 1609. By the Greatest Influences on Galileo. First edition of the main astronomical work by one of the greatest influences on Galileo. "Guidobaldo was Galileo's patron and friend for twenty years and was possibly the greatest single influence on the mechanics of Galileo." (P. L. Rose in DSB). In this work, originally composed in the 1580s but published posthumously by his son, Guidobaldo deals with mathematical and observational astronomy and the improvement of astronomical instruments. "Guidobaldo helped to develop a number of mathematical instruments, including the proportional compass, the elliptical compass, and a device for dividing the circle into degrees, minutes, and seconds [described and illustrated in this work]." (DSB). "In general Guidobaldo's attitude to mathematical instruments paralleled his attitude towards machines. Through these material devices, he felt, abstract mathematical truth could be made completely visible." (Rose, The Italian Renaissance of Mathematics, p.224). Guidobaldo del Monte (1545-1607) studied mathematics at Padua and later at Urbino. He became the friend and pupil of Frederico Commandino, whose translation of Pappus he edited and published. His "first book, the 'Liber mechanicorum' (1577), was regarded by contemporaries as the greatest work on statics since the Greeks. [And his 'Perspectivae libri sex' (1600)] the best Renaissance study of perspective ...Guidobaldo was Galileo's patron and friend for twenty years and was possibly the greatest single influence on the mechanics of Galileo. In addition to giving Galileo advice on statics, Guidobaldo discussed projectile motion with him, and both scientists reportedly conducted experiments together on the trajectories of cannonballs. In Guidobaldo's notebook (Paris MS 10246), written before 1607, it is asserted that projectiles follow parabolic paths; that this path is similar to the inverted parabola (actually a catenary) which is formed by the slack of a rope held horizontally; and that an inked ball that is rolled sideways over a near perpendicular plane will mark out such a parabola. Remarkably the same two examples are cited by Galileo at the end of the Two New Sciences, although only as postscripts to his main proof--which is based on the law of free fall--of the parabolic trajectory." (DSB). Ricardi I 180; Houzeau & Lancaster 2912. Folio (232 x210 mm), ff [6] 128 (numerous mispaginations but fully complete); with large engraved celestial sphere on title and numerous woodcut diagrams in text; slight water stain on outer margin of title and the next 12 leaves; a fine copy in contemporary stiff vellum.

        A quiet and sober reckoning with M. Thomas Morton somewhat set in choler by his aduersary P.R. concerning certaine imputations of wilfull falsities obiected to the said T.M. in a treatise of P.R. intituled Of Mitigation.

      [St. Omer: English College Press], 1609. 4to (17.8 cm; 7"). [20] ff., 688 pp., [8] ff. Ardent controversialist Parsons takes aim at Morton, who in his A preamble unto an encounter with P.R. had challenged Parsons' previous work, and fires stinging accusations of inaccurate source-quoting, hypocrisy, and general lack of understanding. He defends his theories of equivocation and rebellion with great gusto and enough force to make one wonder just how vitriolic the work might have been had Parsons not been operating, as he repeatedly points out, under his "quiet and sober" heading. No doubt this response hardly improved Mr. Morton's temper — the phrase "a Satanicall and damnable lyar" enters into play, although to give Parsons his due, it does seem to have come from Morton first.    Provenance: The 19th-century joint bookplate of the Rev.

Esse sono solo per una novantina originali e derivano, nel resto, oltre che dal Certaldese, dal Cent nouvelles nouvelles, dalla Diana di Giorgio di Montemayor, dal Mambriano del Cieco da Ferrara, da Anton Francesco Doni. Di singolare interesse le novelle contenenti precisi riferimenti alla realtà storica, come gli amori di Bianca Capello e di Francesco de'Medici (particolarmente insistiti sono i temi licenziosi, anch'essi sostanziali calchi del Decameron) o efferati delitti del tempo. La raccolta è divisa in due parti: la prima contiene 106 novelle, la seconda 96. Nella prima parte sono presenti due novelle replicate, sicché il titolo descrittivo si può considerare esatto. Da principio il libro sembra volersi inserire in una tradizione boccacciana ormai al declino: un Argomento delle novelle introduce la raccolta e traccia una cornice esile e pretestuosa che ritrae un gruppo di gentiluomini trevigiani rifugiatisi in villa per sfuggire alla peste del 1576 e desiderosi di ingannare il tempo novellando. L'impalcatura del libro cede immediatamente e lascia spazio a un susseguirsi di novelle giustapposte senza nessun evidente nesso logico o cronologico. Consueti i temi attorno ai quali ruotano i racconti: beffe, furti, inganni, amori tragici o licenziosi, storie di viaggio e fatti di cronaca. Il riuso di materiali preesistenti, comune a tutta la tradizione novellistica, nelle Ducento novelle assume dimensioni imponenti: quasi la metà del materiale consta di una sciatta riscrittura di novelle della raccolta quattrocentesca francese Cent nouvelles nouvelles; altre fonti sono il Mambriano, le opere di Anton Francesco Doni e la Diana enamorada del portoghese Jorge de Montemayor. Rimane un nucleo di novelle originali in prevalenza ambientate fra Venezia, Firenze e Milano, che più o meno scopertamente si presentano come autobiografiche, anche se di questa autobiografia, che passa attraverso la lente deformante della sublimazione del ricordo e che si nutre di una pervasiva letterarietà, è lecito più volte dubitare. Questi racconti conservano notevoli descrizioni di costumi e usi locali ritratti dal vivo con dovizia di particolari, e tramandano affreschi verosimili, se non veritieri, tanto della vita popolare e caotica di Venezia quanto dell'ambiente di corte nella Firenze del granduca Francesco I e di Bianca Cappello. L'orchestrazione drammatica delle novelle è alquanto sconnessa e la lingua, un toscano letterario appesantito da una sintassi e da una morfologia incerte, riceve dalla tradizione teatrale cinquecentesca la tendenza a un uso stereotipato e caratterizzante del dialetto e degli idiomi stranieri. Le Ducento novelle si presentano dunque con un profilo ambiguo, irrisolto nella struttura a cavallo fra raccolta di novelle e romanzo autobiografico, decisamente più interessanti per alcuni contenuti cronachistici [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Le commentaire royal ou l'histoire des yncas, roys du Peru

      First French translation by Jean Baudoin from the original in Spanish published in 1609 in Lisbon. This translation only concerns the first part of the royal Comment, the second apparently never been translated. The frontispiece is in the upper Peruvian city, probably Cuzco, which is represented in a procession celebrating the various forces of nature. In the lower part, two designated Incas Manco Capac and Mama Ocllo frame the title and overcome two thumbnails representing one side of the jewels and the other a caravel. The board is usually signed ML (here L. was cleared) for Michel Lasne, French engraver and draftsman who was particular student of Rubens. Bound in full vellum, back three nerves decorated the head of a title manuscript pen, corners very lightly bumped. Waterstains small head and tail of the padding on the entire structure, gallery to between 867-977 pages 1269-1286 and slightly affecting places numbering notebooks but not the text. The frontispiece of the text summarizes the issues by showing the richness of a land conquered by the Spanish while highlighting the outstanding figures of Peruvian history. Indeed, the man left, Manco Capac is traditionally considered the first emperor of the Incas in Cuzco; Mama Ocllo would, in turn, his wife. By placing the head of his work both mythical figures of the founding of the Inca civilization, Garcilaso de la Vega (1539-1616) affirms its willingness to go back to the almost mythological origins of the Peruvian people. Itself illegitimate child of a conquistador and an Inca princess after the line Capac, raised in two different cultures, the Vega offers a history of the Incas before and during the Spanish conquest, while stressing its privileged position as a direct witness of the events. As he points out in his address to the reader, the historians who preceded him "have obscurely Traitté [es]" certain things he considers essential to understand the history of Peru. On the contrary, he "native of Peru, and perfectly instructed in the language of the Court, who spoke of his time in Cuzco, where he spent the best part of his age" has also the advantage of practicing history methodological and serious manner ( "in doubtful matters, he never provides anything"). Above all, this is the time for a single testimony on Peruvian history to the extent that the author does not privilege a Eurocentric vision, unlike his contemporaries, but regularly takes as through the eyes of the Indians concerned their own history. The fact remains that his book is still used as a reference source by historians of Latin America. French Edition of a major text on the history of the Inca civilization.Chez Augustin Courbé à Paris 1633 in-4 (16x23cm) (2f.) (44p.) 1319pp. (32p.) (1f.) relié

      Vorsatz, Titel in schwarz-rotem Druck mit Kupfervignette, (166), 658, 512, (110) Seiten. 2 (35 x 25 cm). Pergamentband der Zeit auf durchgezogenen Bünden mit Titelprägung auf dem Rückenschild und blaugefärbten Schnitten. [Hardcover / fest gebunden]. David Mevius (1609-1670) erhielt eine erste Ausbildung an der Lateinschule in Greifswald und nahm an der dortigen Universität zuerst ein Studium der Theologie auf. Bald wandte er sich jedoch der Rechtswissenschaft zu und studierte ab August 1629 auch an der Universität Rostock. Berühmt wurde Mevius einerseits durch seine langjährige Arbeit als Syndikus der Stadt Stralsund, als Verfasser des 'commentarius in ius lubecense' (Kommentar über das Lübsche Recht) und mehrerer deutschsprachiger Schriften über Pachtverhältnisse, Leibeigenschaft und zur Rechtsstellung und Steuerfreiheit des Adels. Als geschulter Jurist und Doktor beider Rechte trat Mevius vor allem als Rechtspraktiker in Erscheinung. Nach der schwedischen Besetzung Pommerns trat Mevius in den diplomatischen Dienst der schwedischen Krone. 1653 wurde er Vizepräsident des neu gegründeten Oberappellationsgericht für die schwedischen Lehen im Heiligen Römischen Reich deutscher Nation in Wismar und damit in der Rechtsprechung des Gerichts führend. Er veröffentlichte eine Entscheidungssammlung des Wismarer Tribunals (Decisiones) in sechs Bänden. Auch die fortschrittliche Gerichtsordnung stammt aus seiner Feder. Weiterhin in diplomatischer Mission tätig, erlangte Mevius Bedeutung durch die Beilegung des kurmainzisch-pfälzischen Wildfangstreits. Bis zu seinem Tod im Jahr 1670 blieb er Vizepräsident des Wismarer Tribunals. Die von Mevius begründete Entscheidungssammlung des Wismarer Tribunals, die Decisiones, wurde nach seinem Tod fortgesetzt und erlebte bis 1794 noch zehn neue Auflagen. Sie hatte in Theorie und Praxis eine große Autorität gewonnen. (NDB XVII, 281ff). - Die Titelvignette dieser späteren Ausgabe stach E.

        Quis Dives Salvus, Salviani Massiliensis Presbyteri Adversus...

      1609. Give to the Church, Not to Your Children Salvian (Salvianus) [c.390-c.484 CE]. Macherentinus, Johannes [1540-1610], Editor. Quis Dives Salvus. Salviani Massiliensis Presbyteri Adversus Avaritiam Sub Nomine Timothei, Ad Ecclesiam Catholicam Epistolares Libri Quatuor Vere Aurei, Digniq[ue] qui in Omnium Linguas Transferantur Nunc Primum In Certa Capita Distincti, Scholiis Marginalibus, Atq[ue] Annotatione Consensus Sanctorum Patrum Illustrati: Per Joannem Macherentinum de Societate Jesu Theologum. Trier: Ex Officina Typographica Henrici Bock, 1609. 28, 226, [10] pp. Quarto (7-1/4" x 6-1/4"). Contemporary flexible vellum, later lettering piece to spine, ties lacking. Light rubbing to extremities, some soiling and spotting, vellum just beginning to crack through pastedowns. Title printed within woodcut typographical border, woodcut head-pieces, tail-pieces and decorated initials. Moderate toning to text, light foxing to a few leaves. Early annotations to endleaves, interior otherwise clean. * First edition (by Macherentinus). Salvian of Gaul was an important Christian thinker and canonist of the fifth century. Enhanced with arguments drawn from canon law, his Adversus Avaritiam outlines reasons to give alms to the church. More interesting, it says parents should bequeath their estates to the Church rather than their children; It is better for children to suffer want in this world to save their parents from damnation in the next. Salvian also has much to say on the duty of self-denial by priests, nuns and monks. Macherentinus, the editor of this edition, was a Jesuit theologian.
