8. 6,232 S. Pergament der Zeit mit handschriftlicher Rückenbeschriftung. Schrift gering verwischt. Farbschnitt. Innendeckel am Innensteg vorne und hinten, oben und hinten unten, sowie das fl. Vorsatz und je ein Blatt mit Löchlein. Die ersten Blätter mit blassem Wasserrand im rechten unteren Eck, 2 Blätter mit Knickspuren im unteren Bereich. Gering gebraucht, eigentlich recht schön. Erste Ausgabe. * Gruber (1609-1684) verfasste im Auftrag von Johann Heigel eine "Theologie Lutheri", die 1657 gedruckt wurde. Später entstand in selbem Auftrag eine achtbändige Lutherausgabe. Da gleichzeitig die Altenburger Ausgabe erschien, blieb diese Ausgabe liegen und wurde wohl überwiegend makuliert.

Pro summis in Arte Medica, honoribus, privilegiis & insignibus Doctoralibus consequendis, Publice examinandas & discutiendas proponit Arnoldus Gillenius Cassellanus Hessus. . Ad diem 4. Calend. Iunii, Anno M D CIX. - Basileae : Typis Iohannis Schroeteri, 1609. Enthält 44 Thesen. "Gille, Gillenius (Arnold) Ist zu Cassel 1586 gebohren. Daß er in Basel gewesen, habe ich aus seiner eigenhändigen Beyschrift in eins seiner Bücher, die er bessen, ersehen: vermuthlich hat er da studirt und auch seine medicinischen Doktorwürde empfangen. Aus ähnlichen mehreren Beyschriften zu schließen, ist er 1619 als Leibarzt nach Güstrow gegangen; lange aber mag er es dort wohl nicht gemacht haben, denn wenigstens 1623 befand er sich schon wieder in Cassel, wo er , wie vorhin schon, als prakticirender Arzt lebte, einen botanischen Garten gehabt und im Lande umher die Kräuter aufgesucht hat. Aus dem Leben des Dän. Medikus Olaus Wormius, daß vor dessen Epistel-Collection stehet, und der sich 1611 in Cassel befand, ersiehet man, daß Gillenius um dies Zeit, auch die Aufsicht über das L. Morizens chymisches Laboratorium geführt habe. Gestorben ist Gillenius in Cassel 1633, in seinem 47ten Lebensjahre; am 12. Febr. ist er in der Stiftskirch begraben worden; der damalige Prediger Joh. Majus, hat in das Kirchenbuch, daher ich die Nachricht habe, beygeschrieben: "Medicus eximius & Practicus felicissimus, insuper vir bonus & urbanus. ."."

Giovanni Antonio MAGINI
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. Map from 'L'Italia' edited by Fabio Magini, published in Bologna between 1620 and 1640. Copper engraving, in perfect state of preservation. Almagià pagg. 25/29. 480 385mm

Verheiden, Jacobus
Leyden, Jan Paedts Jacobszoon 1609. 2 werken in 1 band, 36, 41-56 p. Opnieuw gebonden half Leer, 4° (Petrus Bertius 1565-1629, was een Vlaams theoloog, historicus, geograaf en cartograaf. In 1609 had hij de moeilijke taak om op de dag van Jacobus Arminius' begrafenis in het groot auditorium van de Leidsche academie de lijkrede uit te spreken. Alle aanwezigen wisten, dat hij een vriend van Arminius, de grondlegger van het Arminianisme, was geweest en hij maakte er ook geen geheim van. Toen de Liick-Oratie in 1609 te Leiden in druk verschenen was en onder het volk verspreid werd, schreef Franciscus Gomarus, de leider van de Gomaristen of contra-remonstranten in zijn Bedencken over de lijckoratie. Zowel de Liick-Oratie van Petrus Betrius als de Bedencken van Gomarus zijn in deze band opgenomen.).

DE BRY, Theodor
Frankfurt: Theodore De Bry, 1609. unbound. Map. Uncolored copperplate engraving. Sheet measures 12" x 8". This interesting map of Novaya Zemlya or Nova Zembla in Dutch, an archipelago in the Arctic Sea located just north of Russia. The map, centered on the Kara Strait (here noted as Fretum Nassau or Nassau Straits), covers the southern tip of the Novaya Zemlya and the northern tip of Vaygach Island. The map beautifully renders the topography and the sea, with seven Dutch ships making their way through the straits. On the islands illustrations of men, who might be hunters, on foot, in reindeer drawn sledges, are seen carrying guns or spears. Two hunters are seen shooting a bear. Some coastal features including depth soundings are noted. The latin 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. 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. Moreover, it includes what is perhaps the third voyage's most famous incident: after the ship became entrapped in ice, de Veer, who was also the ship's carpenter, directed the dismantling of the ship … [Click Below for Full Description]

Tassoni Alessandro
appresso Giulian Cassiani, in Modona, 1609. In-8° (154x99m), pp. (16), 576, (1) di registro, legatura ottocentesca m. pelle verde con titolo, filetti e decori in oro al dorso. Piatti marmorizzati cailloutés. Tagli a spruzzo. Impresa editoriale allegorica incisa su rame al frontespizio con una conchiglia posata su una roccia entro cornice istoriata con motto entro cartiglio Succo meo. Tavola preliminare dei sonetti. Fregi tipografici incisi, un fregio floreale xilografico alla carta di registro. Un'annotazione di mano ottocentesca. Esemplare rifilato, con uno strappo (con perdita di lettere di testo) al margine inferiore della quarta carta preliminare. In buono stato nel complesso. Prima edizione (e unica edizione apparsa vivente il Tassoni) di uno dei più interessanti documenti dell'esegesi petrarchesca di età barocca. Il Tassoni stese il presente commento nel 1602 nel corso di un suo viaggio in Spagna, riprendendolo e ampliandolo in seguito, al punto che di esso esistono ben 4 diverse redazioni. Il critico acuto e sagace vi appare qua e là, ora nell'esegesi di passi oscuri, ora in osservazioni di cui faran tesoro i commentatori successivi, ora nella protesta contro l'accusa di plagio fatta al Petrarca, protesta che egli appoggia sui documenti, mostrando una non comune conoscenza dei poeti toscani e provenzali. Tuttavia, più che come lavoro filologico, l'opera del Tassoni è interessante come una caratteristica manifestazione del suo spirito bizzarro. Qui ci soffermano le allusioni alla sua vita privata, là le frecciate contro l'Accademia della Crusca. Per il Petrarca egli p … [Click Below for Full Description]

VEER, Gerrit de
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. 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. The map is in good condition with some staining on the sheet near the bottom right. Some edge wear and overall toning. The French text describes part of the Arctic explorations of Willem Barentzs (c. 1550--1597), a Dutch navigator and cartographer.

Sheet measures 12.75" x 9.25" This lovely map of the northern coast of what is today the Murmansk Oblast of the Russia Federation dates to 1609. Covers from Kegor on Russian Lapland to Confort on the Kola Peninsula. Includes Kildin Island. The map shows the topography with some ships in the waters, making thier way through the Barents Sea, signifying the route taken by Willem Barentz, after whom the sea was named. Also notes towns, forts and islands. Two compass roses are included and rhumb lines are noted. Two beautiful sets of illustrations depict natives the crew encountered. The text above the map describes these encounters. Some stains to margins with two worm holes.

Kepler, Johannes
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 Arzte … [Click Below for Full Description]

[DUVERGIER DE HAURANNE, Jean, abbé de Saint-Cyran (1581-1643)].
"Paris: chez Toussainct Du Bray, 1609" [i.e., mid-18th century]. 12mo (161 x 99 mm). [1], 56 (recte 65) ff. Woodcut title vignette (harvesting scene with lion at top), woodcut headpiece and initial. Publisher's binding? of 18th-century French olive morocco, triple gilt fillet on sides, flat spine gold-tooled and -lettered, gilt edges (joints and extremities scuffed, spine a trifle faded).*** Counterfeit edition of a meditation on suicide by one of the founders of Jansenism. Reputedly inspired by musings of Henri IV, reported to the author by a friend at court, this work is an apology for the morality of suicide under special circumstances, namely to save the life of one's sovereign. Du Vergier's arguments include over 30 examples of justifiable suicide. Considered by most a youthful jeu d'esprit, for the Jesuits the essay was pure casuistry and a "horror." This counterfeit edition, deliberately intended to deceive, repeats the foliation errors of the original edition and contains the Privilege du Roy; but it is embellished with a title woodcut which distinguishes it easily from the first edition (which instead bears Du Bray's device, a hand holding a sheaf of grain), and is printed on mid-eighteenth-century Limousin paper (carré raisin fin). The counterfeit may have been published by the Jesuits as ammunition against Duvergier de Hauranne (cf. F. Martin, Angélique Arnauld abbess of Port Royal, 1873, pp. 185-6). Of the dozen N. American libraries holding this title, all except Houghton (which holds a copy of the true first edition) take the imprint at its face value. The bin … [Click Below for Full Description]
