        Observationum, in hominis affectibus plerisque, corpori & animo, functionum laesione, dolore, aliave molestia & vitio incommodantibus, libri tres.

      Basel: Ludwig König for Conrad Waldkirch, 1614. A fine copy of this important medical work by one of the foremost pathologists of the sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries. It contains "the first known case report of the death from hypertrophy of the thymus (in an infant) and an account of a meningioma" (Norman). "The work also contains the first mention of the thickening of the palmer fascia which results in retraction of the fingers and later called Dupuytren's contracture". (Heirs of Hippocrates). Norman 1716; Heirs of Hippocrates 373; G&M 3789 (endocrinology), 4297.9 (the earliest book listed on orthopaedics), and 4511.1 (neurology). A disciple of Eustachi, Falloppio and Vesalius, Platter was one of the foremost pathologists of the sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries, occupying a place midway between Fernel (1497-1558) and Bonet (1620-89). "Platter proposed a classification of diseases based on symptoms, a system very different from that followed by contemporary practitioners. He performed over 300 dissections, making numerous significant pathological observations, including sublingual calculi, giantism, intestinal parasites, and cystic liver and kidneys associated with terminal anasarca. Platter also made the first attempt to classify mental diseases, grouping them under mental weakness (caused by heredity, trauma or physical illness), mental consternation Oistlessness, stupor, paralysis, agitation or catalepsy), deep sleep (comatose or torpid states) and mental alienation. He gave one of the earliest accurate clinical descriptions of cretinism, at that time commonly found in the Swiss mountains. "Platter's Observations contains concise but vivid descriptions of a wide variety of diseases, including all the then known psychiatric disorders together with accounts of their treatment. Platter was one of the first to study mental illness scientifically, seeking their origins in physiological rather than supernatural causes; his descriptions of mental illnesses frequently include enough information to recreate the physical and environmental factors involved" (Norman). "Platter is credited with performing the first public dissection of a human body in a Germanic country and is said to have dissected over 300 bodies during his career. He was widely respected as a teacher and was a physician of great courage who remained in Basel to treat the sick on five occasions when the plague struck the city. As one of the early nosologists, he recognized three classes of diseases based on their natural history and postmortem findings, and distinguished four types of mental illness." (Heirs of Hippocrates). 8vo (174 x 108 mm), pp. [48] 1-845 [3:blank], contemporary vellum with yapped edges, manuscript lettering to spine, a very fine, clean, and large copy without restoration.

        A Collection Of Several Philosophical Writings of Dr. Henry More Fellow of Christ's Colledge in Cambridge. As Namely, His Antidote against Atheism. Appendix to the said Antidote. Enthusiasmus Triumphatus. Letters to Des-Cartes, &c. Immortality of the Soul. Conjectura Cabbalistica. The second Edition more correct and much enlarged. London: James Flesher for William Morden, 1662.

      - The leading Cambridge Platonist Henry More (1614-87) went to Eton and then Christ's College, Cambridge, where he was elected fellow in 1641 and remained for the rest of his life. His early philosophical poems reveal an interest in Copernicus, Galileo and Descartes. He was one of the first Englishmen to show an interest in Cartesian philosophy, although he later revised his initial enthusiasm in Enchiridion metaphysicum (1671). In 1650-51 More crossed swords with the alchemist Thomas Vaughan under the pseudonym Alazonomastix Philalethes, and in 1653 he published An Antidote against Atheisme which revealed his opposition to the materialistic philosophy of Hobbes. In 1664 he was elected a fellow of the Royal Society, and the same year published The Apology of Henry More, a statement of his belief in the importance of reason in divinity. Later More began corresponding with the German cabbalist Christian Knorr von Rosenroth, who published some of More's contributions in the first volume of his Kabbala Denudata. PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Folio, xxvii, [vi], 190, [11], [ii], 133, [v], 234 (88-9 misnumbered 87-78), [11], [vi], 184, [18] pp., first title-page printed in red and black, contemporary panelled calf, spine with raised bands and red morocco label, worn at corners and spine ends, surface tears in the first and fifth compartments, superficial worm trace on lower board, joints cracked but cords holding, front free endpaper torn with ownership inscription of Richard Hill dated 1684, title-page browned, elsewhere uniform light age-toning and occasional spots, overall a sound copy in an unrestored contemporary binding.

        Eirenarcha, or of the Office of the Justices of the Peace... [bound with] The Duties of Constables, Borsholders, Tythingmen, and such other Lowe and Lay Ministers of the Peace.

      London: Company of Stationers, 1614. Two works bound together, small octavo; title, 634, [88] pp.; 94 pp. (Duties of Constables); contemporary limp vellum with faint manuscript lettering to spine. A handsome compendium of two early legal manuals: these early seventeenth-century handbooks of common law were prepared for local magistrates, at the time known as Justices of the Peace. The Eirenarcha was written by English magistrate and luminary William Lambard (1536-1601); the work is remarkable for its clarity, easy style and use of pragmatic precedent. The author was a Justice of the Peace for Kent and used his considerable personal experience to produce a common law handbook in comprehensible English free from tortured legalese. The Oxford Dictionary of National Biography states the Eirenarcha is 'written in a clear and unaffected style, this manual remained for a long time the standard authority'.In seventeenth-century England local magistrates were sourced from landholders and the aristocracy, many of whom were unfamiliar with legal terminology. The Eirenarcha was written for this audience, and the result is an amazing insight into everyday life and law in Elizabethan England (the book was first published in 1581 and remained substantially unchanged through later editions). Witchcraft prohibitions exist alongside modern laws such as those regarding concealed pistols, while a strong anti-Catholic theme is evident throughout. Title-page discoloured with some loss of the fore-edge, neatly laid down, preliminary leaves thumbed, frayed at corners and generally a bit damped, last few leaves of the second book chipped at corners with seventeenth century manuscript notations; overall good in worn contemporary limp vellum with faint manuscript lettering to spine.

        [Bible. Psalms. Arabic and Latin] Liber Psalmorum Davidis Regis et Prophetae. Ex Arabico Idiomate in Latinum translatus

Text in double columns in Arabic and Latin. Collation: (*)6,A-3M4,3N6. [12], 474, [1, imprint] pp. 1 vols. Small 4to. Old calf, boards ruled in blind, finely rebacked in period style. Internally clean and fresh. A few annotations (Latin, Hebrew, Arabic) at Psalm 102, slightly faded. Old gift inscription in Latin on back flyleaf.

Small 4to. 'of an outstanding elegance and beauty'. The Arabic Psalms have been translated from the Syriac Peshitta; the Latin text is a translation from the Arabic. Scholar-diplomat François Savary de Brèves (1560-1628), French ambassador at Constaninople from 1584 to 1606, revived the printing of Arabic upon his arrival in Rome in 1608, commissioning "the design and production of an Arabic fount of an outstanding elegance and beauty … based directly on Arab or Turkish calligraphy acquired by Savary while serving in the Ottoman Empire" (Roper). The first book printed by Savary in Rome was dated 1613; in 1615 he returned to Paris and brought his type and his translators with him.

        Druyven hyacinthen.[Netherlands, ca. 1650]. Watercolour (ca. 13.5 x 13 cm) on laid paper (31.5 x 21 cm), with caption below.

      - Delicate watercolour of two grape hyacinths by the Dutch watercolour painter and engraver Pieter Holsteyn de Jonge (1614-1673). Holsteyn made many drawings of plants, birds and insects which were often composed in albums. Some of those albums are still intact and supplied with a title-page by the artist himself and as a result many of the drawings in those albums were not signed. These grape hyacinths were in such an album, which was later taken to pieces. With certificate from Dr. S. Segal, Amsterdam. In very good condition.

        Histoire de la mission des peres capucins en l'isle de Maragnan et terres circonvoysines ou est traicte des singularitez admirables & des meurs merveilleuses des Indiens habitants de ce pais avec les missives et advis qui ont este envoyez de nouveau.

      Paris: François Huby, 1614. First edition, second issue, of the principal printed source for the French colonization of north Brazil, for the customs, religion and astronomy of the local Tupinambá Indians, and for the natural history of the region. "C'est le texte le plus important - avec celui d'Yves d'Evreux - non seulement sur la tentative de colonisation française dans l'île de Maranhão, mais surtout pour les renseignements précieux qu'il fournit sur 'les singularitez admirables et les moeurs merveilleuses des Indiens'" (Duviols). "The narrative of the journey, and all the events, is the principal printed French source that exists about this tentative colonization of the north of Brazil. Although not endowed with the spontaneity and the literary talent of Yves d'Evreux, Claude d'Abbeville gives us valuable information concerning the religion and 'astronomy' of the Tupis, not to be found in any other writings" (Borba de Moraes). This is the first and most important written account of the Capuchin mission to Maranhão, of which this is the earliest known mention (Sabin). The work was considered rare a century ago by Leclerc ("un ouvrage aussi important que rare"). ABPC/RBH list only a single complete copy at auction in the last 45 years (Sotheby's New York, 12 November 2007, lot 21, $40,000 - also the second issue). The first issue was published earlier in 1614; this second issue has a number of corrections to the main text and a lengthier index at the end (see Borba). The island of Maranhão, uninhabited by the Portuguese, and an entryway to the Amazon, had been discovered by the French explorer De Vaux in 1604. There was a large settlement of Tupinambá in the area, and d'Abbeville (p. 13) claims that the Tupinambá had offered to become subjects of the French king and Christians in exchange for protection from the Portuguese. Daniel de la Touche, sieur de la Ravardière, accompanied De Vaux, and upon his return to France, persuaded Henry IV to fund a new expedition and a new fortified French colony for the exploration of the Amazon for treasures of silver and gold and to protect the Tupinambá. Henry IV was murdered in 1610, and when the ships finally left in 1612 the Huguenot La Ravardière shared command with a Catholic nobleman François de Razilly. Four French Capuchins, Yves d'Evreux, Arsène de Paris, Ambroise d'Amiens, and Claude d'Abbeville, accompanied the expedition to settle Maranhão. Relations between the French and the Tupinambá were good and the Capuchin mission initially successful. In the following year Arsène and d'Abbeville returned to France, bringing with them six Tupinambá catechumens who were to be baptized at the French court. These Indian ambassadors, portraits of whom, in European dress, can be found in the present account, caused a sensation in Paris, where curious crowds flocked to see them and "the Histoire de la mission seems to have been printed very quickly in order to take advantage of the presence in Paris of the six Indians from Maranhao ... It appears that the first edition [i.e. issue] was soon out of print, and a second was printed. This was published with the misprints corrected, and a more extensive index was compiled and printed in 35 pp. in double cols' (Borba de Moraes). In 1613 d'Abbeville and de Razilly returned to France to solicit further funds and the following year nine Capuchins were added to the mission; by then the Capuchins had transformed the trade colony into a mission to convert the Tupinambá cannibals of Brazil. Hemming (p. 206) describes in detail how the missionaries and the six Tupinambá ambassadors "landed at Le Havre after a stormy crossing and were given a great reception, with a procession, gun salute, visit to the Governor and acclamation by the crowd. There were similar festivities in Rouen. But the greatest excitement was in Paris. A hundred priests greeted the Tupinambá party at the city gates, and escorted it to the Capuchin church for a mass attended by a galaxy of French nobility. The Tupinambá marched in the procession wearing their feathers and holding clubs. The Parisians were wild with curiosity: people poured in from the countryside, and the excited crowd burst the gates of the Capuchin convent housing the Indians. The Tupinambá were taken to the Louvre to visit King Louis XIII, and their leader made a speech in Tupi. But the inevitable European diseases struck these Americans: the sixty-year-old Carypira caught influenza and died, and two of his companions died soon after. They were buried in Franciscan habits. But the three survivors received the full panoply of French official hospitality. They were taken for baptism in the Capuchin church in the Faubourg Saint-Honoré, wearing long soutanes of white taffeta buttoned down the front with silk buttons and with small valois collars, and carrying tall hats with white plumes. Each carried a fleur-de-lys as a symbol of submission to the French. King Louis and his mother the Regent Marie de Médicis acted as godparents, and the Archbishop of Paris officiated. The leading Tupinambá was christened Louis-Marie, and he made a speech of acceptance. The three were then taken to the convent of Sainte-Claire to satisfy the curiosity of its nuns, who were desperate to see the exotic strangers." This Histoire includes a number of fascinating engravings of the Tupinambá Indians. At the top of the engraved title page, eight Indians petition Marie de Medicis, Regent of France (small banners with Latin flow from their mouths); below, Tupinambá (again with Latin banners) petition the Pope and St. Francis. At the lower left, a Tupinambá grills two human legs over an open fire as a woman looks on; at the lower right, kneeling Indians are blessed by Capuchin friars. The first full-page engraving (f. 89v) shows a crucifix being erected in Maranhão, with the Capuchins and a French soldier kneeling in the foreground, a crowd of Tupinambá watching, a group of teepees in the background, and a ship riding at anchor in the harbor. Three portraits show Tupinambá in native dress, all with weapons, one with extensive tattoos (ff. 347v, 355v, 358v). The other 3 portraits show Tupinambá wearing the soutane in which they were baptized, carrying a tall hat and a fleur-de-lis (ff. 361v, 363v, 364v).

        ARTE, Y VOCABULARIO EN LA LENGUA GENERAL DEL PERU, LLAMADA QUICHUA, Y EN LA LENGUA ESPAÑOLA.

      Los Reyes [i.e. Lima]: Por Francisco del Canto. 1614. - [4],35,28-31 [i.e. 36-39],[1],[176] leaves. Last five leaves in expert facsimile. Contemporary limp vellum. Light to moderate soiling of binding, corner of rear cover chipped. Titlepage mutilated around edges, affecting first portion of title; mounted on newer leaf. Second leaf clumsily repaired around edges, not affecting text. Trimmed closely at top, affecting text in some places. Light soiling. Good. An important Indian language work, from the first (and at the time only) press in South America, printed only twenty-eight years after the beginning of printing there, and twenty-six years before the Bay Psalm Book was published. Del Canto, the owner and operator of the only press in South America at the time, was the second printer in Peru. He acquired his press directly from Antonio Ricardo, the first printer in South America. This work begins with a grammar of the Quechua language, followed by Quechua-Spanish and Spanish- Quechua dictionaries. The book is in a handy smaller format for use in the field. Medina says this book is "extraordinariamente raro," and it is lacking from many of the great collections. This work is generally credited to Del Canto, the author of the introduction, but parts of it may be by Gonzalez Holguin, whose other publications on Peruvian Indian language were published in Lima in 1607 and 1608. Sabin attributes authorship, however, to Ludovico Bertonio. Only eight copies on OCLC. MEDINA, LIMA 58. VARGAS UGARTE 79. PALAU 17729. SABIN 5020. JCB (3)II:101. OCLC 6783843, 251190642.

      Amsterdam, Judocus Hondius, 1614.4to. Contemporary blind-tooled vellum (1 hinge cracked but holding). With 2 printer's marks, 6 (of 7) folding maps and plans and 51 large engraved maps and views in the text. (8),360,(6) pp.First Dutch edition; first published in Latin in Amsterdam in 1611. - One of the earliest descriptions of Amsterdam, its history and institutions. Of special importance are the accounts of Dutch explorations in the East-Indies and Africa, and reports of the attempts to find a North-East passage, including the account of the third voyage of Willem Barentsz. to Nova Zembla (1596-97) during which voyage Barendsz and his crew members were iced in and forced to winter over in Novaya Zemlya in a wooden cabin ('Het behouden Huis').The map of the Polar regions illustrating this third voyage of Willem Barentsz. is also important as an Americanum in giving the results of Hudson's first two voyages (1607-1608) for the Muscovy Company of London. The appearance of the map by Hondius was doubtless the result of Hudson's employment by the Dutch East India Company in 1609. Pontanus also describes in detail the activities on the Amsterdam stock- and commodity markets, one of the earliest in the world and at that time the most important one. - (Stamp on title-page; map of Holland missing). - Scarce Dutch edition.

        Friedrich Ulrich Herzog von Braunschweig-Lüneburg und Anders von Wobersnau. Eintreibung überhöhter Reichssteuern beim Closter Wülffinghausen in Edelmetallen. Vom jungen Herzog Friedrich Ulrich und vom Münzfälscher Anders von Wobersnau auf der Veste Wolffenbüttel dekretiert und gemeinsam eigenhändig signiert, 24. August 1614

      Festung Wolfenbüttel erste und einzige Ausgabe 1614 - einseitig bedrucktes Quarto-Büttenblatt (ca. 32,5 x 19 cm), der Text des fürstlichen Edikts rechts unterhalb des gedruckten Textes in Feder mit brauner Tinte von Friedrich Ulrich als Herzog von Braunschweig-Lüneburg und von Arens von Wobersnau als Geheimer Rath eigenhändig unterzeichnet, rückseitig in schwarzer Tinte handschriftlich adressiert an "Den ehrwürdigen, unseren lieben Andaechtigen, getreuen Dominae Verwaltern und gantzem Convent Unseres Closters Wülffinghausen", beidseitig unter schwerem Glas in teilvergoldetem Echtholzrahmen gerahmt, das alte Edict einmal senkrecht und einmal quer gefaltet, im Falz geglättet und gebrochen, die beiden Original-Unterschriften intakt und unberührt, sehr selten und für uns anderenorts antiquarisch nicht nachweisbar, museales Dokument mit historisch überaus interessantem Hintergrund und Original-Unterschriften des Herzogs von Braunschweig-Lüneburg und eines der kriminellsten Fälschers des deutschen Geldwesens noch vor dem Beginn des Dreißigjährigen Krieges - Das so genannte "Regiment der ungetreuen Droste" unter der Führung von Anton von der Streithorst (1562-1625) wurde ursprünglich zur Unterstützung und Beratung des jungen und regierungsuntüchtigen Herzogs Friederich Ulrich eingesetzt, missbrauchte die ihm verliehene Macht jedoch in schamloser und krimineller Weise, indem es sich Steuergelder aneignete, Ämter und Klöster plünderte, das Regierungssystem korrumpierte und vor allem das Münzwesen in dramatischer Weise verschlechterte. Arends von Wobersnau war einer der angeblich habgierigsten und rücksichtslosesten dieser Geheimräte und einer der ersten, der in Zeit der "Kipper und Wipper" Währung und Wirtschaft des Landes ruinierte, indem er systematisch und in gigantischen Mengen "schlechtes Geld" in den Umlauf brachte. Dazu betrieb er auf der Feste Calenberg, dem Sitz der Voigte, eine kriminelle Münzfälscher-Werkstatt mit zahlreichen Arbeitern, in der er gute Münzen in großen Mengen einschmelzen und mit unedlen Metallen vermengen, neu ausprägen und in Umlauf bringen ließ. - In der historischen Forschung wird gemeinhin angenommen, Arends von Wobersnau habe die Edelmetallmünzen, die er auf Schloss Kalenberg in großem Stile verschlechtern ließ, als "gutes Geld" mit vollem Edelmetallgehalt überwiegend bei jüdischen Münzhändlern in Hannover gekauft bzw. eingetauscht. Dieses seltene und bislang unbekannte Edikt der Steuereintreibung bei Kalenberger Klöstern zeigt jedoch, dass seine Vorgehensweise in Wirklichkeit noch perfider und krimineller war, als es die Geschichtsforschung bislang annimmt. Die "guten Münzen" wurden offenbar von Wobersnau und seinen Komplicen nicht gekauft oder eingetauscht, sondern wie hier am Beispiel des Frauenstifts in Wülffinghausen belegt, durch Forderung übermäßiger Steuerforderungen im Auftrag des Herzogs erzwungen. Die dann von den Steuerzahlern abgelieferten "guten" Münzen wurden "natürlich" nicht dem Herzog abgeliefert, sondern von kriminellen, von Wobersnau bestochenen "falschen" Steuereintreibern in die Keller der Festung Kalenberg geschafft, wo sie für die geheimen "Münzoperationen" des Arends von Wobersnau eingeschmolzen, mit unedlen Metallen vermengt und neu ausgeprägt wurden. - Wie gigantisch die Profite bei diesen Münzfälschungen und wie groß der Schaden für die Wirtschaft Braunschweig-Lüneburgs gewesen sein müssen, wird deutlich, wenn man zeitgenössischen Berichten Glauben schenkt, dass aus der Menge von Münzen, die ursprünglich einer Tonne Silber entsprachen, am Ende der "Münzoperationen" Wobersnaus nur noch ein Teelöffel Silber zu gewinnen war. - Es ist nicht überliefert, ob die evangelischen Damen des Frauenstifts den hohen Steuerforderungen nachgekommen sind. Wahrscheinlich ist dies, denn auf der Rückseite des Edicts ist in brauner Tinte notiert, die geforderten Reichssteuern seien "geliefert" worden. Wahrscheinlich ist dies auch deshalb, weil das Frauenstift, das eigentlich schon vor den Steuererhebungen von 1615 als arm galt, ab 1618 verpachtet we [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        NEW ENGLAND / NEW YORK]. Nova Belgica et Anglia Nova.

      - One of the most importing maps from the history of America, based on Adrien Blockwith's map from 1614, showing Manhattan as an island. It embraces the area between Virginia, past New York and Long Island to Cape Code, New England, and Quebec. The Blaeu Family: The Leading Cartographers of the 17th Century Willem Jansz Blaeu (1571-1638) was, more than any other figure, responsible for the ascension of Dutch cartography to a globally dominant position. Blaeu, originally from Alkmaar, north of Amsterdam, got his start while serving as an apprentice to the legendary Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe at his observatory of Uranienborg, from 1594 to 1596. Upon Willem’s return to the Netherlands, he started a business making charts, globes and nautical instruments. His timing was impeccable, as the Dutch economy, based on maritime trade, was booming and there was an insatiable demand for high quality sea charts and nautical kit. Notably, in 1596, the Dutch made their first voyage to the East Indies, which led the establishment of the Dutch East India Company in 1602. The VOC would be one of Blaeu’s anchor clients and in 1633 he was appointed the Company’s official hydrographer. Blaeu’s sea atlas of European waters, Het Licht der Zee-vaert (1608) was revolutionary, being the first broadly accurate maritime atlas. He went on to create magnificent wall maps, large-format charts and eventually terrestrial atlases, all decorated with the finest Dutch Baroque artistry. In particular, the Pascaarte van alle de Zecusten van Europa (1621) helped to establish Blaeu’s supremacy in the highly competitive Dutch cartography market. Towards the end of his life, Willem Blaeu published the Atlas Novus (1635), a grand production that would be progressively expanded to include new volumes featuring all of the known world in unprecedented detail. The work featured numerous maps, exemplified by the present map, based on carefully selected sources and designed in the finest manner of the contemporary Dutch Baroque style. They became iconic works of cartography readily recognizable to generations of observers. The Atlas Novus and its successor publications were issued in 5 languages and became the most commercially successful works of their kind, setting a new standard for map publishing, emulated by cartographers across Europe. Joan Blaeu (1598-1673) was the most successful mapmaker in the world in the mid-17th Century, during the apogee of Dutch cartography and the fortunes of the Dutch Republic. While he inherited a splendid enterprise from his father Willem, he managed to dramatically grow and expand the business to new heights. His greatest achievement was the world’s largest and most sumptuous atlas, the Atlas Maior, an 11-12 volume Baroque masterpiece (and successor to the Atlas Novus), in which editions of the present map appeared. The Blaeu firm flourished until its workshop was destroyed in a fire in 1672, ending almost three generations of hegemony over the map market. While many would try to emulate the Blaeu’s success, this was never accomplished, and the Blaeu name stands alone at the fore of the Golden Age of Dutch cartography.

Der Lübecker Rat vereinigte Elemente verschiedener Rechtsvorstellungen und schuf so ein Werk, das - nur wenig verändert - die Zeiten überdauerte. Es war das einzige deutsche Stadtrecht, das bis zum Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts seinen deutschrechtlichen Ursprung bewahrte. Unter den Städten, die Lübsches Recht anwandten waren Rostock, Stralsund, Oldenburg, Plön, Kiel, Elbing, Reval, Memel, Danzig, Wolgast, Stolp, Kolberg, Barth, Krakau, Nowgorod, Wismar, Riga u.v.a.

        Biao du shuo [trans.: Explanation of the Gnomon]

      - Numerous woodcuts (some full-page & some half-page) in the text. 6, 3, 40 folding leaves. 8vo, old, possibly orig. wrappers (with several repairs, one of which touches but does not obscure the text), orig. block-printed label on upper cover, new stitching. [Peking: 2nd Preface dated 1614]. First edition, and very rare, of this work on the gnomon, one of the first astronomical measuring instruments, and its uses in astronomy and surveying. This work is important in the history of astronomy as it states here for the first time in China the doctrine that the earth is spherical. Ursis is also the first to state in China, in the present work, that the earth is divided into spaces separated by meridians and parallels. He uses geometrical analysis of planetary motions and the Euclidean geometry necessary for applying it to gnomonics, stereographic projections of the astrolabe, and in surveying. The beginning of the text discusses the five questions regarding latitude. In one of the woodcuts, the earth is depicted as casting a shadow as the sun revolves around it. In another of the woodcuts, Ursis shows two boats taking opposite routes from the Atlantic Ocean ("Da Xiyang") to the Indian Ocean ("Xiao Xiyang") with the endpoint of their journeys shown at the bottom of the earth. Europe, Asia, and Africa are depicted on a spherical globe, rather than as a square image. In the following woodcut, we see the same two ships leaving the Atlantic but now North and South America are shown. This is the first depiction of the Americas in a Chinese-printed book. The fact that ships could leave the same point, going in opposite directions, and yet arrive at the same destination demonstrated the earth is round. The remainder of the book is concerned with the height of the sun, the length of shadow caused by a moving sun, geographical matters, the summer and winter solstice, and surveying problems using the gnomon. One of the two prefaces was written by Xiong Mingyu (1579-1649), the most senior member of the Fang School. He was one of the first of the late Ming scholars to accept the Jesuits' notion of the shape of the earth. He states in his preface that the Chinese already had had the same concept of the spherical globe in the time of the Yellow Emperor but social disruptions and the destruction of many books within China caused this knowledge to be lost. Sabatino de Ursis (1575-1620), a member of a prominent family in Naples, arrived in Peking in 1607 in order to help Matteo Ricci in his scientific work. He also worked together with Xú Guangqi and Ricci on the translation of Euclid's Elements into Chinese. Following the death of Ricci in 1610, Ursis became the principal Jesuit astronomer in China. Ursis was involved in the reform of the Chinese calendar (based on his prediction of a solar eclipse on 15 December 1610 which the Chinese had not anticipated), translated the hydraulics portions of Ramelli's book into Chinese (1612), and wrote a work on the armillary sphere (1611). These were later gathered and published in Peking in 1629 in a multi-volume encyclopedia of western astronomical science. Fine copy and extremely rare. ?

        Hortus Floridus in quo rariorum & minus vulgarium florum icones ad viv

      1614. PASSE, Crispijn van de. Jardin de fleurs, contenant en soy les plus rares et plus excellentes fleurs que pour le present les amateurs dicelles tiennent en grande estime et dignite. Divisees selon les quatre saisons de l'an. Four parts in one volume. With an engraved title-page bearing portraits of Dodoens and L'Escluse, printed title + 3 sectional title-pages, 1 engraved sectional title-page,(no title-page for either Spring or Altera Pars) 5 plans of garden designs( 3 copies of one and 2 of another), and 160 very fine engraved plates of flowers, all in brilliant impressions, arranged according to the seasons: Spring (41 plates), Summer (19 plates), Autumn (27 plates), and Winter (12 plates). PLUS: Pars altera (61 plates depicting 120 figures). [20] pp. descriptive text in French. Oblong 4to., 288 x 188 mm, bound in Belgium by Dubois d'Enghien in late nineteenth-century red crushed morocco, elaborately gilt with small floral sprays and garlands. a.e.g. Utrecht and Arnheim: J. Jansson, 1614. |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition, a fine copy in a handsome binding. De Passe's Hortus Floridus (i.e. "A Garden of Flowers") is universally recognized as one of the THE great flower books, a masterpiece of Dutch Golden Age engraving containing more than 160 full-page plates of flowers and herbs that have been coveted by horticulturalists and connoisseurs for over 400 years. There are naturalistic and extremely delicate renderings of flowers of Springtime, including the narcissus, hyacinths, crown imperials, tulips, auriculas, daffodils and more; flowers of Summer, Autumn and Winter include peonies, carnations, pinks, roses, dianthus, sweet william, mallows, lilies, gladiolus, clematis, and more. "Delightful touches of humour enliven De Passe's work: bees and butterflies hover about the flowers; insects crawl among the leaves; a little mouse gnaws contentedly at an uprooted corn" (Blunt, Art of Botanical Illustration, p. 109). "Perhaps the greatest of the early horticultural works using copperplate engraving, Hortus Floridus shows the great control and detail possible with this technique. De Passe was a member of a famous family of Dutch engravers and went on to become a Professor of Drawing at a school for the education of the royal pages in Paris. Unlike the stiff and artificial look of most seventeenth-century botanical works, Hortus Floridus shows the flowers planted in the earth, sometimes accompanied by insects or animals. Most of the flowers shown in the book are tulips, crocuses, and other flowering bulbs. The Dutch enthusiasm for collecting and planting these flowers led to the 'tulipomania' of 1636 and 1637, when speculation in the investment of tulip bulbs caused a nationwide financial crisis" (University of Delaware, Art of Botanical Illustration). Florilegia (such as the Hortus Floridus) differ dramatically from the earlier medicinal herbals in their emphasis on flowering plants, and in the attractiveness of their engraved plates, which provide more detailed pictorial information. The Hortus Floridus is one of the first to employ engraved plates in order to allow the highest degree of accuracy. "Besides such basic information as how plants look and when they bloom, the Hortus, which is organized by season, allows the viewer to visit a seasonal 'garden' in bloom no matter the time of year" (NYPL, Dry Drunk: The Culture of Tobacco in 17th- and 18th-century Europe). It is remarkable that the illustrations in this volume are accompanied by Crispijn van de Passe's own detailed directions for the colouring of the copperplate image. The 1614 Hortus Floridus is bibliographically complex, and virtually no two copies agree in collation, setting of type, or states of the plates. The present copy does not precisely conform to any of Savage's states, but resembles his first state more closely than any of the other states he describes. This copy parallels the Hunt copy in that the plates are after numbers (and mostly after the addition of various insects), and all the plates, except for those in Pars Altera, which have none, as the Hunt copy, have Latin texts on the versos. Furthermore it has 41 plates in Spring (later states have 54); Summer has 19 plates (later states have 20). Savage, "The Hortus floridus" in: Transactions of the Bibliographical Society, N.S., vol.

        Les Oeuvres politiques, morales et meslees du Sieur du Vair premier Président au Parlement de Provence. Comprises en cinq parties.

      - Cologne [sic pour Coligny proche de Genève], De l'Imprimerie de Pierre Aubert, 1614. Fort volume in-8, plein veau havane, dos à trois nerfs gothiques soulignés de filets dorés et à froid, petit fleuron quadrifolié entre-nerfs, filet d'encadrement sur les plats, couronne de lauriers doré au centre (reliure de l&#146;époque), (8), 1459 p. Bonne édition des oeuvres complètes de Guillaume Du Vair, publiée de son vivant à Coligny près de Genève, édition qui servira de modèle aux rééditions postérieures. L'ouvrage est divisé en cinq parties, par sujet: I- Actions & Traités oratoires. II- De l'éloquence francoise, & des raisons pourquoi elle est demeurée si basse. III- Arrests sur quelques questions notables prononcés en Robbes rouges, au Parlement de Provence. IV- Traités philosophiques. V- Traités de Piété & S. Méditations. Magistrat, parlementaire et philosophe, Guillaume Du Vair (1556-1621) devint, après avoir été ligueur, l'une des personnalités de premier plan du parti des 'Politiques'. Nommé garde des Sceaux en mai 1616 à la demande de Marie de Médicis, démis de ses fonctions quelques mois plus tard, il fut rappelé par Louis XIII, après l'assassinat de Concini. Il est l'un des premiers et des principaux artisans de la renaissance du stoïcisme, de sa synthèse avec le christianisme et de sa transformation, en ces temps de crise, en philosophie de l'action et du devoir. Sur l'importance philosophique, politique et rhétorique de l'oeuvre de G. Du Vair et sur ses ouvrages « imprégnés des problèmes posés par les guerres civiles et religieuses en cette fin du XVIe s. », cf. M. Fumaroli, 'L'âge de l'éloquence', J. Jehasse, 'La Renaissance de la critique ' et L. Zanta, 'La renaissance du stoïcisme au XVIe', passim. (Arbour, 'Ère baroque', n°20460. Cette édition manque à la BnF). Coins émoussés, mors frottés et fendillés en tête, quelques taches sur les plats, auréoles et rousseurs éparses, quelques déchirures marginales restaurées, qqs soulign. anciens à la plume.

        Liber psalmorum Davidis regis, et prophetae. Ex Arabico idiomate in Latinum translatus. A Victorio Scialac & Gabriele Sionita. Recens in lucem editus munificentia Francisci Savary de Breves. Rome, Stefano Paolini f. Typographia Savariana, 1614.

      1614. 4to. (8), 474, (6) pp. With two woodcut coats of arms on t. p. and at the end. Late 19th century half calf. First edition of this adaptation of the Psalms, set in Arabic-Latin parallel text. Printed in some 3000 copies, most of which were used for a 1619 re-issue with only the title page changed. Famous for the clarity and elegance of the typeface created by Savary de Brèves: the extensive vocalisation helped this handy quarto volume achieve immense popularity among oriental scholars throughout Europe. Formerly it was assumed that the type design was based on specimens Savary had seen during his time as French envoy at Constantinople; today his probable model is believed to be a calligraphical manuscript from Qannubin, preserved in the Bibliotheca Vaticana. The cutting and founding of the types were done in Rome, in collaboration with Stefano Paolini, an experienced printer formerly of the Typographia Medicea. The Psalms' text is based on a manuscript Savary de Brèves had bought in Jerusalem (cf. Balagna, L'imprimerie arabe en occident, p. 55f.); as it occasionally departs from the Vulgate (as does the translation by the Maronites Sionita and Scialac), an extensive imprimatur was necessary. - Bellarmin's Arabic catechism and the Arabic-Latin Psalter would remain the only works to leave the Typographia Savariana in Rome; the types have survived and are now in the archives of the Imprimerie Nationale in Paris. - From the library of the Biblical scholar Samuel Davidson (1806-98) with his ms. ownership to title page; binding slightly bumped, but a fine copy altogether. STC 108. Darlow/Moule 1641. Lüthi 198. Smitskamp 33. Schnurrer 324 & p. 500-506. Fück 56. Ebert 18088. Brunet IV, 921.
