This first containeth a theological and geographical historie of Asia, Africa, and America, with the islands adjacent.

Despite the errors in pagination, the text is complete but for the final leaf (4K6 - the last page of the index and an errata list), which is partial. A facsimile of this leaf is laid-in. The title page is a bit dust-soiled and has a couple of nearly imperceptible, old repairs on the reverse. There is a faint dampstain to some leaves of the preliminary text, otherwise it is clean. The volume was rebacked once-upon-a-time, but the Old calf boards are detached once again. The bookblock is whole. Armorial bookplate of Peter Hardy, F. R. S. (1813-1863), and pictorial bookplate of C. B. Farwell (1823-1903) on front pastedown. This work is a sort of religious geography that draws largely upon Ramusio and Hakluyt, and the historians and political geographers of all ages. (It should not to be confused with "Purchas His Pilgrimes" of 1625.) The eighth and ninth books, pages 717-917 relate to America. References: Cox I, p. 6; Sabin 66679; STC (2nd ed.) 20506.

        Spanish illuminated manuscript on vellum, grant of arms, in favor of Melchor del Peso

      Excellent example of a Spanish Illuminated Executoria, of remarkable artistic quality. 1614. Valladolid. In folio (295 mm x 205 mm). 73 ff. Richly gilt contemporary Spanish calf, retaining original cord, boards with gilt fillets and interlacing tooling enclosing corner and center pieces, spine gilt; slightly worn and rubbed. Contemporary inscriptions to first blank, few folios a little toned but overall fine, with the paintings in splendid fresh condition and striking colors, protected by silk leaves. Remarkable example of a Spanish Grant of Arms or Ejecutoria, made on vellum and featuring two large paintings, the first a splendid rendering of unusual artistic quality portraying the Spanish Royal family, Philipp III with Queen Margarita and sons, along with Saint Francis of Asis and a Bishop or Cardinal holding the keys of saint Peter to the Virgin Mary of Lastra de Aguita (the Virgin Patroness of Anguita, Guadalajara), the border showing Saints in a hispanic-flemish surrounding with floral arrangements, the bottom with legend ?Don Felipe?; the second an impressive coat of arms, with a wide border illustrating war garments ?weapons, flags, helmets and armaments-, some of which appear Middle Eastern, bottom with legend ?Por la Gracia?. Both paintings are signed at the bottom, although we do not by whom. Nevertheless, the considerable skill shown in the paintings ?particularly the hands, faces and expressions- indicate it was made a professional artist. Even more-so taking into account the amateur artistry often shown in Ejecutorias. These documents began early in the 16th century ?the lavish productions to celebrate the granting of arms to the Hijosdalgo-, the trials themselves to prove nobility predate them considerably. Further literature on the subject can be found in the catalogue made for the exposition ?El Documento Pintado? (details on request). The quality of the documents, made by artists at the request of the family who wanted them for their records, depended on the price they were willing to pay.

        A TRUE AND ALMOST INCREDIBLE REPORT OF AN ENGLISHMAN, THAT (BEING CAST AWAY IN THE GOOD SHIP CALLED THE ASSENTION, IN CAMBAYA, THE FARTHEST PART OF THE EAST INDIES) TRAVELLED BY LAND THROUGH MANY UNKNOWNE KINGDOMES, AND GREAT CITIES...the Second Impression, newly corrected

      London: N.O[kes]. for Thomas Archer, 1614.. [6],68pp. Small quarto. Expertly bound to style in red morocco, stamped in gilt and blind, spine gilt extra, leather label, a.e.g., gilt inner dentelles. Without blanks A1, K3, and K4. Titlepage soiled and repaired, with the lower right quarter supplied in facsimile. Light soiling throughout. Other than loss to title- leaf, a very good copy. The second edition of Coverte's account of his voyage to the East Indies, following the first edition published in London in 1612. The author and his men left Plymouth in March 1607 aboard the Ascension and were among the first Englishmen to see the Cape of Good Hope, arriving there in July 1608. Coverte eventually reached Gujarat, where the ship ran aground while approaching Surat. Not granted permission to remain in Surat, the crew departed to various destinations. Coverte and others set out for the Moghul Court at Agra, arriving there in December 1609. He and other crew members left Agra in January 1610 "with the intention of making their way back to the Levant by the overland route. Travelling by way of Kandahar, Esfahan, and Baghdad...they reached Aleppo in December 1610 and from the coast of the Levant sailed for England. They subsequently arrived home in April 1611" (Howgego). An absorbing account presented in the form of a travel diary, Penrose described the work as a "vigorous narrative...it relates its author's reception by the Emperor Jahangir, and his tedious journey across India, Afghanistan, and Persia, and as such is one of the best examples of a travel journal that the period produced." An extremely popular travel account, a third London edition appeared in 1631, and German translations were printed in 1617 and 1648. The account was also included in compilations of discovery and exploration published by De Bry, Hulsius, and van der Aa. STC 5896. HOWGEGO C211. Penrose, TRAVEL AND DISCOVERY IN THE RENAISSANCE, p.324.

First edition of this uncommon and interesting book on auctions, their history since antiquity, the various kinds of auctions -- "Dutch" auctions, auctions by candle, etc. -- and the legal aspects of auctions.

        Observationum in hominis affectibus

      Ludwig Konig Basel: Ludwig Konig, 1614. Platter, Felix (1536-1614). Observationum, in hominis affectibus plerisq[ue], corpori & animo, functionum laesione, dolore, aliave molestia & vitio incommodantibus, libri tres. . . . 8vo. [48], 845 [1]pp. Basel: C. Waldkirch for Ludwig Konig, 1614. 170 x 103 mm. 19th cent. quarter morocco, worn at spine, small split in rear hinge. Uneven browning & foxing, but very good. Bookplate. First Edition. Garrison-Morton 3789; 4297.9; 4511.1. 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). His Observationes, published the year of his death, contains a lifetime's worth of detailed pathological observations of a wide variety of human ailments, including veneral and genito-urinary diseases, tuberculosis, bodily deformities, disorders of the sensory organs, gynecological diseases, etc., gathered from both living patients (Platter was chief physician of Basel from 1571 until his death) and from 48 post-mortem examinations. "For many, Platter's fame is based on the abundance of individual observations contained in the case histories in his Observationes. . . . The Observationes contains observations in all branches of medicine. . . . It is astonishing how [Platter] could see and grasp originalities in every field" (Karcher, Platter, pp. 80-81 [our translation]; also pp. 56-87). Long, in his History of Pathology, credits Platter with performing over 300 dissections during his 57-year medical career--an astounding number if true, since the obtaining of cadavers was severely restricted by both church and secular authorities during this time. Platter's enthusiasm for dissecting is recorded in his lively and entertaining diary, kept while he was a medical student at Montpellier; according to his diary, Platter's love of dissecting even made him turn grave-robber at one point! Platter was probably the first to practice anatomic pathology, noting during post-mortem examinations that certain illnesses appeared to be caused by anatomic abnormalities. He was ahead of his time in including exact dates in his case histories, and would often include the names, sexes and occupations of his patients as well. Platter was also one of the earliest to study mental illnesses scientifically, seeking their origins in physiological rather than supernatural causes; the Observationes contains accounts of all the then known psychiatric disorders together with details of their treatment. Other notable contributions contained in the Observationes are the first known case report of death from hypertrophy of the thymus (in an infant) and an account of a meningioma. Platter has also been credited with including in the Observationes an early description of the deformity of the fingers now known as "Dupuytren's contracture"; however, this is incorrect (see Boyes, On the Shoulders of Giants, p. 22). DSB. Krivatsy 9073. Long, History of Pathology, p. 41. Norman 1716. Waller 7505. Pusey, History of Dermatology, p. 44, crediting Platter with studying "universal exfoliative dermatitis, gangrene of the skin, and the use of white precipitate ointment in pustular eczema."

        Trigonometria plana, et sphaerica, linearis, & logarithmica. Hoc est, tam per sinuum, tangentium, & secantium multiplicationem, ac divisionem iuxta veteres: quam per logarithmorum simplicem fere additionem iuxta recentiores; Ad triangulorum dimetiendos angulos, & latera procedens. Cum canone duplici trigonometrico, & chiliade numerorum absolutorum ab 1 usque ad 1000, eorumque logarithmis, ac differentijs.

      First edition. "Cavalieri, a pupil of Galileo, introduced logarithms into Italy in his <i>Trigonometria</i> and several other works." (Hook & Norman: Origins of Cyberspace, No. 3). "From the standpoint of mathematics alone the Italian writer who influenced the science most in the 17th century was probably Bonaventura Cavalieri, ... [he] was one of the first to recognize the great value of logarithms" (Smith: History of Mathematics, p.362). <br/><br/> "Logarithms were introduced into mathematics in the work of Napier in 1614. In Italy such valuable auxiliaries to numerical calculation were introduced by Cavalieri, together with noteworthy developments in trigonometry and applications to astronomy. In this connection we might mention 'Directorium generale uranometricum' (1632), ..., 'Nuova pratica astrologica' (1639), and 'Trigonometria plana, et sphaerica, linearis et logarithmica' (1643). The 'Directorium', the 'Pratica', and the 'Trigonometria' contain, moreover, excellent logarithmictrig-onometric tables." (DSB III, p.152). </br></br> The final 104 pages of the <i>Trigonometria</i> contain Cavalieri's tables; "the main table in this work the logarithms of numbers up to 1000 are exhibited to seven decimals with characteristic and interscript first differences." (Henderson: Bibliotheca Tabularum Mathematicarum, no. 37). <br/><br/> The <i>Trigonometria</i> also contains a preliminary defense by Cavalieri of his method of indivisibles; "Throughout the last three of the four volumes of his 'Centrobaryca' (1635-1641) [Paul] Guldin had commented upon Cavalieri's use of indivisibles and had particularly criticized it very outspokenly in Chapter 5 of the fourth volume. Shortly before Guldin's death [in 1643] Cavalieri published a defense of his method in the section 'Admonitio circa auctorem centrobaryacae' of his Trigonometria (1643, pp. 6-8)". (Kirsti Andersen: Cavalieri's Method of Indivisibles, Archive for History of Exact Sciences, vol. 31, p.295). Cavalieri's full defense of his method appeared in his 'Exercitationes Geometricae' 1647. </br></br> The Erwin Tomasch Library C-52; Riccardi I/1 328; Cinti 111.. 4to (225 x 168 mm), engraved frontispiece pp. 16, 71, (1); (104) and 1 engraved folding plate, contemporary limp vellum, inner hinges a little loose, front pastedown and free end paper with a little worming (hardly effecting the inner margin of the frontispiece), in all avery good and clean copy in its original state

        Fictitious Parrot

      Nicolas RobertFictitious ParrotParis, circa 1670Watercolor on vellum with gold fillet23 3/4? x 20 1/2? framed(professionally framed with a beautiful gold leaf moulding with all archival materials and uv plexiglass)Nicolas Robert (1614-1685) was one of the greatest natural history artists of the 17th century, and his work established standards combining scientific accuracy and esthetic appeal that influenced generations of artists and won the respect and patronage of the French royal family. Robert created a vast, exquisite body of work for the French Crown. Along with other artists, Robert was commissioned by Gaston d?Orleans, brother of Louis XIII, to create watercolors of the rare plants and exotic birds he had assembled in his garden at Blois and the Ménagerie at Versailles. Robert?s talent was recognized quickly as being superior to that of other artists working for the royal family, and after Gaston d?Orleans?s death, he was quickly placed under the patronage of the Sun King, Louis XIV. As a reward for the stunning works he painted for the king?s personal collection, Robert was named ?Peintre Ordinaire du Roi? in 1666, a title that confirmed his continuing fame and patronage.  Robert was the first significant contributor to a collection of fine watercolors on vellum that became known, collectively, as the Velins du Roi (the King?s Vellums). The watercolors Robert completed under Gaston d?Orleans and then Louis XIV for the royal collection fed the interest and provided the inspiration for the great masters of botanical and ornithological art who followed: Jean Joubert, Nicholas Marechal, Gerard van Spaendonck and, of course, Pierre-Joseph Redouté. Thus the extremely fine print work of Parisian natural historians and flower painters as late as 1825 can be traced directly back to the strength of Robert?s tradition. Probably executed for noble patrons, these stunning ornithological watercolors date from around the time of Robert?s period in the court of Louis XIV. The birds are defined with subtle modulations of delicate hues, and the simple yet monumental compositions combine flawless artistry with Robert?s characteristic attention to scientific precision. The vast majority of Robert?s watercolors are housed in public institutions, including the Musee d?Histoire Naturelle in Paris, the British Museum in London, and the Hofbibliothek in Vienna. These watercolors represent an unusual opportunity to obtain original, unique works by a highly important and exceptionally talented artist. The brilliance that made the Sun King recognize Robert as the preeminent watercolorist of his day is still evident in these pristine and charming works.

Piccola strappo all'altra.Frontespizio figurato e ritratto entro cornice del Bartoli con il motto SIC Virtus, identica a quella delle edizioni precedenti a c. 4v. Numerosissime figure geometriche e diagrammi nel testo incisi in legno con figurine umane impegnate nelle misurazioni, alcune delle quali occupano tutta la pagina. Da segnalare a c. 105, nel libro IV il rilevo topografico di Firenze con i luoghi vicini traguardati e gli schemi delle bussole. Grandi capilettera figurati.L'opera illustra strumenti e metodi di misura tratti dagli scritti di svariati autori che vanno da Orontio Fineo, Archimede, Euclide a Leon Battista Alberti.Il primo libro tratta delle misure di altezze, profondità e distanze, il II quello delle misure delle figure geometriche piane e dunque i terreni, il III le misure delle forme geometriche solide, dunque diversi elementi architettonici (dadi, colonne piene e vuote), le capacità dei corpi, le botti etc.; il IV tratta dei rilevamenti cartografici a partire dalla descrizione delle Province e dalla costruzione di una bussola, il V tratta degli elementi euclidei, mentre il VI ed ultimo contiene esercizi matematici (dal come si calcola una radice quadrata di cui vengono fornite tavole, le radici cubiche.Anche in questa edizione compare la dedica a Cosimo I de' Medici, presente anche in quelle del 1564 e 1589, al periodo di regno di Cosimo che era salito al poter assai giovane nel 1537, si deve la gestione corretta del territorio con la costruzioni di porti e fortezze, ricostruzione di cinte murarie, proprio a questo periodo si deve lo sviluppo delle scienze aritmetiche nel Granducato, necessarie proprio per un uso oculato del territorio. L'interesse per le scienze matematiche è dimostrato anche dalla collezione di strumenti matematici che Cosimo I aveva raccolto a Palazzo Vecchio.Cosimo Bartoli, figlio di Matteo che era stato podestà si Pistoia ed era amico di Michelangelo, si trasferì a Roma dove si esercitò nell'architettura ed anche nelle discipline umanistiche e nella matematica. Pur avendo abbracciato la carriera ecclesiastica - nel 1540 era stato nominato prevosto nel Battistero di Firenze - nel 1536 ebbe un figlio che allevò presso di sé pur facendolo passare per il figlio del fratello Giuliano. Presso i Medici divenne segretario del diciassettenne figlio di Cosimo I, Giovanni, quando venne creato Cardinale. Tornato dunque a Roma, con Giovanni de Medici, questi nel 1562 lo nominò suo agente a Venezia, dove rimase dieci anni, lamentandosi spesso per lo scarso stipendio. Tornato a Firenze, morì il 25 ottobre 1572. La sua opera letteraria è assai più importante di quello politica, convinto che la lingua volgare potesse ormai essere utilizzata anche per le materie scientifiche, inizialmente curò la pubblicazione di opere come la Difesa della lingua fiorentina e di Dante del Lenzoni, edito nel 1556 e gli Elementi del parlar toscano scritto dal fratello Giorgio ed edito solo nel 1584. Nel 1550 pubblicò una sua traduzione dell'Archiettura di Leonbattista Alberti, e quindi gli Opuscoli morali, sempre dell'Alberti nel 1558. Quattro anni dopo con la prima edizione di questa opera, la lingua volgare ha ormai trovato la sua piena applicazione anche nelle scienze. GRAESSE I, p. 303.
