MERCATOR, Gerard, & Jodocus Hondius.
Duisberg. c.1611-30 - Size: 460 x 350 mm. Very good condition; some wormholes expertly repaired, some show through. Copper engraving. Original colour. A classic early Mercator and Hondius map, featuring 3 large and ornate strapwork cartouches, one of which includes a view of the entrance to the Strait. The ornate compass rose is orientated to the north at the bottom of the map. Several sailing ships and both land and sea creatures are highlighted. The Southern Land is identified as Tierra del Fuego. Rhumb lines emanate from an extremely decorative compass rose. The coast line of Tierra del Fuego quickly turns from charted lands to conjecture, trailing off to become a part of the unknown southern continent. One of the most fascinating and decorative of all regional American maps, illustrating an important period in the history of the discovery of the Americas and water routes from the Atlantic to the Pacific, predating the discovery of Cape Horn in 1616.

Urreta, Louis.
Valencia, Juan Chrysostomo Garriz, 1611. - Small 4to (21 x 15 cm). (16), 410, (6) pp. With woodcut arms of the Dominican order (with the IHS and cross covering the centre) on title-page, and a variant version on the last page, and 3 woodcuts in text (2 saints and the Cross). Further with 24 decorated woodcut initials in two series, including 11 repeats. Contemporary gold-tooled mottled calf, each board with the coat of arms of the French Seguier family and with the monogram PSMF (Pierre Seguier and his wife Madeleine Fabry) repeated 6 times on the spine, rebacked (on recessed cords) with original gold-tooled backstrip laid-down, a later spine label (between the 1st and 2nd monogram), the year of publication 1611 at the foot of the spine, later endpapers. First and only edition, in Spanish, of an early work on Ethiopia by the Spanish Dominican monk Luis de Urreta (ca. 1570-1636), who wrote two volumes glorifying his own order's accomplishments in Ethiopia while diminishing those of the Jesuits (his Dominican coat of arms incorporates the IHS with cross, often used by the Jesuits). In the present work, the second of the two, he deals specifically with the Dominican presence in Ethiopia and the history of the Ethiopian saints. Like the first work, the "Historia ecclesiastica" published in 1610, it is a late example of a stream of geographical fantasies where Ethiopia was presented as the wondrous utopian kingdom of Prester John, and Urreta makes the case for an ancient Dominican presence in the country, arguing that they should thus be given precedence over the Jesuits as Cath … [Click Below for Full Description]

FAUCHET (Claude)
Genève, Paul Marceau pour la Soc. caldorienne, 1611. 1 fort vol. in-4°, vélin souple. Reliure de l'époque. Restauration à un angle du plat sup. (4) ff., 947 pp., 124 pp., (1) f., (1) f. blanc. Rousseurs éparses et cernes marginaux. Angle inf. droit des 20 premiers ff. effrangé (sans perte de texte). 4ème et dernière édition augmentée de l'oeuvre majeure du président Fauchet, à laquelle il travailla plus de quarante ans. Les Antiquitez gauloises retracent l'histoire nationale depuis les origines gauloises jusqu'au déclin de la maison de Charlemagne. Fauchet souhaitait donner à la France une histoire de ses origines dégagée de toutes les fables et distorsions qui s'y étaient greffées depuis. L'humaniste d'appuie sur les chartes anciennes et sur les travaux d'érudits dignes de confiance. "Par ses qualités de chercheur et la rigueur de sa méthode, Fauchet fut l'un des artisans les plus actifs, avec Etienne Pasquier et Henri Lancelot de La Popelinière, du renouveau que connut l'historiographie en France dans la seconde moitié du XVIe siècle (Dict. des Lettres Françaises, XVIe s., p. 508). Lelong reconnaît la valeur inestimable du travail de Fauchet mais regrette son style qu'il trouve grossier et sa trop grande crédulité. A la suite des Antiquitez gauloises, les deux autres remarquables traités du même auteur ont une page de titre spéciale. Brunet II, 1192; Cioranescu, 9835; Ruelle, 1111; Lelong, 15640.

Al foglio di guardia ex libris Antonia Suardi Ponti, con il motto "Leggere le buone opere e osservarle". Assai rara edizione originale di un'opera, pubblicata postuma, dell'erudito Marco Publio Fontana (18 gennaio 1548 - 10 novembre 1609), le cui origini non sono del tutto note, sostenendo taluni essere nato a Palosco nel Bergamasco, ed altri nel Bresciano. Ebbe interessi molto vari, spaziando dalla medicina alla botanica, dalla fisiognomica alla chiromanzia, dilettandosi nella pittura, nella scultura e nella musica come suonatore di cembalo. Corrispondente del Marino, ascritto alle Accademie degli Erranti e dei Rapiti, lasciò varie composizioni letterarie, alcune perdute: "Carmina" (1578), "Delphinus" (1582), "Dafne, ovvero Dell'onore" (1595), etc., oltre all'importante "Il sontuoso apparato fatto dalla magnifica citta di Brescia nel felice ritorno dell'ill. & reverendiss. vescovo suo, il cardinale Morosini.

RUDIO (Eustachio).
Patavii, Petrum Bertellum, 1611 [à la fin: Patavii, Ex Typographia Laurentii Pasquati, Impres. Camer, 1611]. in-4. 2ff. 242pp. 1f. Cartonnage postérieur. Edition originale de cet ouvrage sur les rapports entre psychologie et neurologie, l'un des rares traités de cette période consacrés à ce sujet. Un des chapitres s'intitule "De naturali cerebri constitutione et quae principaliter et quae secundario ad actiones animales in eo adendas concurrunt". "Between the sixteenth and the seventeenth century, we witness a constant and extraordinary blossoming of ideas in many fields of philosophy that led to a new concept of knowledge. This development also involved, if not predominantly, the ‘concept of the mind’. The publication of the well-known Examen de ingenios para la ciencias by Juan Huarte in 1575 may be taken as a crucial step in this development. Huarte’s work represents an attempt to convert the scholastic concept of the mind (mens) into the ‘corporeal and perishable’ wit (ingenium) and, in Huarte’s words, it was largely based on the recovery of Galen’s natural philosophy, especially in the Quod animi mores corporis temperamenta sequantur. Relying on such authors as Bernardino Telesio, Agostino Doni and Eustachio Rudio, I argue that the recovery of Galen’s philosophical views during the Renaissance had a powerful influence on the early modern debate about the nature of the ingenium" (F. Bigotti). Eustachio Rudio, né à Belluno en 1548, étudia la médecine à Padoue et l'exerça à Udine entouré d'une grande réputation. Il fut nommé professeur à Padoue en 1599.

The evidence of the attempts to leave the Aristotelianism for the modern method and an important proof of the Galileian revolution.Clavius's work includes in addition to commentary on arithmetic and algebra one on Euclid, Teodosio and Sacrobosco; his contribution to the study of trigonometry and astronomy; his work on the calendar. Clavius has been for mathematics in Renaissence a real turning point: "Probably the man who did the most of all the German scholars of the 16th century to extend the knowledge of mathematics... was Cristopher Clavius, a Jesuit, who passed the later years of his life in Rome. He was an excellent teacher... His Algebra appeared in 1608 and was one of the best textbooks on the subject that had been written up to that time... (he was) engaged in the reform of the calendar..." (Smith). Opera Mathematica in his third volume contains the Sphaera in his last editorial, to which Clavius worked during 1610 and which was printed in 1611. Shortly thereafter, in February 1612, Clavius was dying after a period of illness.

BAROZZI IACOPO DA VIGNOLA (1507-1573).
Roma, nella Stamperia Camerale, 1611. In - folio; 4 cc. (antiporta incisa e dedica a Marcantonio Borghese), 145 pp., 2 cc. non num. (assente l'ultima carta bianca), numerose illustrazioni incise in legno e in rame nel testo; legatura del settecento in mezza pelle con titolo e filetti in oro al dorso (minimi difetti). Gora al margine esterno delle ultime 20 cc. ma esemplare genuino con buoni margini. Seconda edizione del tutto uguale alla prima di Roma del 1583, con solo alcuni cambiamenti nei dati tipografici al frontespizio. Nella "dedica ai lettori" dell'opera "Regola delli cinque ordini d'architettura", il Vignola annunciava il nuovo trattato sulla prospettiva che per• vedr... la luce solo a dieci anni dalla sua morte, pubblicato sui manoscritti originali dal matematico Egnazio Danti (1536 - 1586): "il Danti assunse con molto impegno il compito di completare lo scarno ma chiarissimo testo del Vignola con ampi Commentari, riuscendo a pubblicare l'opera dieci anni dopo la morte dell'architetto manierista emiliano suo autore? Malgrado qualche pesante critica rivolta alla impostazione composita di questo importantissimo trattato, l'opera del Vignola e del Danti Š indubbiamente molto pregevole ed ha svolto una funzione fondamentale nella storia della teoria prospettica, tanto per la diffusione della conoscenza dei provvedimenti esatti elaborati per la nuova scienza, quanto perch‚ ha in qualche modo anticipato le conclusioni alle quali giunse pi-- tardi Guidobaldo del Monte alla fine del secolo XVI sulla vera natura dei punti di concorso; essa costituisce momento di passaggio … [Click Below for Full Description]
