        Peregrinaçaõ de Fernão Mendez Pinto que consta de muitas e muy estranhas cousas que vio e ouvio no Reyno da China, no da Tartaria, no de Pegù, no de Martauão, e em outros muitos Reynos, e Senhorios das partes Orientaes

      x+428 pages. Quarto (11 1/2" x 8") bound in original leather binding with raised bands and gilt label to spine. Edited by Antonio Tenreiro. In double column pages issued without map. First published in 1614.Fernão Mendes Pinto was a Portuguese explorer and writer. His exploits are known through the posthumous publication of his memoir Pilgrimage Peregrinação in 1614, an autobiographical work whose truthfulness is nearly impossible to assess. The tale of his adventures was written after the fact, according to Pinto's memories of the events, and for that reason it may be open to doubt as a completely accurate historical source. However, it well documents the impact of the Asian civilizations on the Europeans and constitutes a perfectly realistic analysis of Portuguese action in the Orient, far more realistic than the one made by Luís de Camões in The Lusiads. The most controversial of his claims is that of having been the first European to land in Japan and the introduction of the arquebus. Despite the impossibility of proving these specific assertions, there is little doubt that Pinto was among the first Europeans in Japan, and therefore his account may be considered more reliable than other books describing this period that were written long afterwards. Another controversial claim, that he fought in Java against the Muslims, has been analyzed by various historians. The Dutch historian P. A. Tiele, who wrote in 1880, did not believe Pinto was present during the campaign, but rather that he wrote his information from secondhand sources. Even so, Tiele admits Pinto's account cannot be disregarded because of the lack of alternative information about Javanese history during the time period; despite the doubts over Pinto's accuracy, his viewpoint may represent the only authoritative source in existence. Maurice Collis, a modern expert on Asian affairs who lived in the area for twenty years, holds the opinion that Fernão's accounts, while not entirely true, remain essentially true with respect to the basic events. Because of this Collis considers Pinto's work the most complete European account of 16th century Asian history.Condition:Some worming to the leather and internal gutters, leather scuffed and cracked at back heal corners, rubbing to raised spine areas, spine head chipped away. Red underling in pencil through out else a good copy.

        De Militia Romana Libri Quinque, Commentarius ad Polibium. Editio ultima. BOUND WITH: Poliorceticon sive de Machinis, Tormentis, Telis, Libri Quinque. Editio tertia, correcta & aucta.

      Antwerp: Ex Officina Plantiniana, Apud Viduam & Filios Joannis Moreti, 1614, and 1605, 1605. First work, "De Militia Romana": Pp. 397, [7] index. With 13 full-, half-, and quarter-page copper engravings (1 folding), Plantin's woodcut device, initials and several woodcut textual illustrations. Second work, "Poliorceticon": Pp. 219, [7] index. 36 full- and half-page engravings, woodcut printer's devices on title and last leaf, woodcut initials and ornaments. Bound in contemporary vellum, rebacked with original ink-lettered spine laid down, large blind-stamped arabesque centrepiece on covers. Brownish stain on rear cover, leaves lightly toned, noticeable offsetting from some plates, but overall a nice clean copy. An early combined edition of the Flemish humanist and Latin scholar, Justus Lipsius's two most important treatises on Roman military history. "De Militia Romana", first published in 1595, is a commentary on Polybius's "History", with the Greek text and a parallel Latin translation. "Poliorcetica" (1599) is a study of the Roman machinery of war. Both are embellished with the fine engravings of Peeter vander Borcht and Theodore Galle. In addition to these works, Lipsius produced critical editions of Vallerius Maximus, Vellius Paterculus, Seneca, and the younger Pliny, but he was most highly regarded for his editions of Tacitus (1574, 1600), whose work he knew so well that he "offered to repeat any passage with a dagger at his breast, to be used against him if his memory failed him". (Sandys II, 303).. Vellum. Very Good. Quarto.

Exhibens novi in Mare Australe transitus, ...Leiden, Niclaes van Geelkerck for Jodocus Hondius, 1619. Oblong 4to (19 x 25 cm). With a large engraving on title-page, and 25 numbered engraved plates with maps and views: 2 large folding (a map of the world and a map of the East Indian archipelago), 5 double-page (mostly bound as fold-outs) and 18 full-page, several with insets. Blind-tooled pigskin (ca. 1700? but probably the book's first binding), in a panel design with 2 large rolls, rebacked.

      Borba de Moraes, pp. 826-827; Landwehr & V.d. Krogt, VOC 361; Sabin 89450; STCN (2 complete copies of present issue & 4 of issue without Hondius's name). Scarce, first Latin edition (in the same year as the first edition in the original Dutch) of one of the bestsellers of illustrated 17th-century travel literature, describing one of the most famous early voyages around the world by Joris van Spilbergen, the veteran Dutch East Indies naval officer-turned-pirate, undertaken from 1614 to 1618. A short survey of another of the most important early voyages around the world, by Schouten and Le Maire in the years 1615 to 1617, is added at the end, with drop-title "Navigationes Australes". It reports Le Maire's proof that Tierra del Fuego is an island and his discovery of what is still called the Strait of Le Maire, an alternative route to the Pacific. In 1614 the VOC commissioned Spilbergen to sail to the Moluccas with nearly 700 men. Despite the commercial nature of his expedition, Spilbergen's six vessels were heavily armed, anticipating encounters with silver-laden Spanish vessels. Spilbergen spent two years calling at various Spanish and Portuguese ports along both coasts of South America, failing to capture any great amounts of silver or silk from Manila, but burning several settlements and emerging triumphant from a naval skirmish just south of Lima.By contrast, Le Maire's less mercenary expedition resulted in important discoveries; his exploration of Tierra del Fuego and the Tuamotou Archipelago called into doubt the existence of a massive southern continent (until its existance was proved in the 19th century), providing a catalyst for Tasman's discovery of New Zealand and Australia. The two expeditions crossed paths in the Dutch East Indies in 1616.Spilbergen's book is also remarkable as an early document of Dutch voyages to the Brazilian coast, especially valuable for its detailed account of the stay in the Ilha Grande, from October 1614 to January 1615, and in São Vicente in 1615. Slight browning throughout, with the title-page and its conjugate cut down and the margins expertly restored, along with the gutter margin of, worm holes repaired in 7 plates and 4 leaves of text, slightly affecting the printed image in 3 plates. Binding worn and rebacked, with some minor stains.

        De respiratione et eius instrumentis, libri duo [and] De Motu locali animalium, secundum totum [and] De gula, ventriculo, intestinis tractatus [and] [De Musculi Artificio, Ossium de Articulationibus]

      - Padua [and] Venice, Lorenzo Pasquati for Meglietti-de Martinis [and] Pietro Bertelli, 1614-1618. Four parts in one volume 4to of I. (8), 118 and (2) pages ; of II. (2), 123 (ie 121), (1) and 32 pages ; of III. of (4), 1-42, (2 blank), 43-184 (ie 174) pages ; and IV of (8), 214 pages ; Contemporary calf. The Fabrizi's pioneering physiology of movements, muscles and respiratory. Very rare collection of original editions of Fabrizi's works on animal motion and the physiology of muscles and respiratory. The present collection, bound in contemporary calf, have been gathered before the printing of a general title in 1625 by Meglietti and can be considered as a very early volume of all his four works which are a necessary complement at the illustrated folio editions of Frabrizi's anatomical works. "As a scientist, Fabrici was an indefatigable and scrupulous observer, describing his results with exactitude. His interpretation of observed phenomena was often shaped by tradition, however, and he may not be considered a comparative anatomist in the modern sense because he made no studies of homologous structures and did not attempt to analyze relationships and affinities of the organs that he studied. His primary purpose in his studies of fetal anatomy, for example, was to prepare a tool for the interpretation of the purpose and end of the organs under consideration; he was more concerned with finding philosophically based principles than with morphological detail and tended to modify observations that did not verify such principles. Thus he often failed to pursue his own discoveries to their logical conclusions. His interpretation of nature was, then, a teleological one, and his methods of observation derived largely from Galen. Fabrici published his results in several volumes, including De visione, voce, auditu (Venice, 1600); De locutione et ejus instrumentis liber (Venice, 1601); De brutorum loquela (1603); De venarum ostiolis (1603); De musculi artificio, ossium de articulalionibus (1614); De respiratione et eius Instrumentis, libri duo . (1615); De gula, ventriculo, intestinis tractatus (1618); De motu locali animalium secundum totum (1618); and Hieronymi Senis De totius animalis integumentis opusculum (1618)—all of which may be considered as parts of the uncompleted but monumental Totius animalis fabricae theatrum which he meant to publish and to which he devoted many years. In addition, there are in the St. Mark’s library in Venice 167 Tabulae anatomicae, collected in eight volumes, part of the 300 color plates that Fabrici finished in 1600 as his major purely anatomical work." (DSB) "Fabricius of Aquapendente was one of the anatomists who brought valuable contributions to the physiology of movement. His study of the musculature of the extremities, and of the various phases of walking, jumping, and so on, and of the effort exerted in overcoming resistance, anticipate, as De Renzi has noted, the more famous studies of Borelli” (Castiglioni, p. 432) "In their treatises on the larynx, Fabricius and Casserius gave accurate descriptions, with clear and detailes illustrations, of the human larynx and the upper airway, providing at the same time thoughtful inferences on the physiology of speech and respiration. Fabricius's detailed accounts of respiratory movements of the vocal cords were drawn from his numerous observations on live tracheotomized animals in which the glottis was directly exposed ; he recognized the marked abduction of the vocal folds during deep inspiration, their adduction in vocalization, and the closure of the glottal chink during explusive maneuvers." (Widdicombe and Sant'Ambrogio, "Airway and Pulmonary and reflexes : a historial survey" in West, Respiratory Physiology: People and Ideas, 1996, page 320) The title page of de Musculi artificio never been bound in the volume ; otherwise inside clean and fresh. An important volume. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

In the preface, Marius gives a circumstantial account of his acquisition of his telescope from a Dutchman at the Frankfurt Fair of 1608; this may have been Zach, Janssen of Middleburg who is said to have constructed a telescope in 1604, or Jean Lipperhey who in 1608 applied to the States General for a patent for telescopes. Galilei constructed his first telescope himself in 1609 from descriptions given him of these Dutch instruments. This work is very rare, with the last copy at auction in 1977. Very Good.

        The History of the World

      Printed for Walter Burr 1614 [i e 1617], London - Folio (12 ¾ x7 ¾ ), old marbled boards, rebacked in morocco by careful amateur, new endpapers, engraved copper pictorial title-page, and with 8 double page copper-engraved maps and plans; [80], 492, 491-651, [1], 776, [62] pp. This copy generally corresponds to the second edition (STC 20638), but with minor variations in arrangement of unpaginated leaves. The first leaf, “The minde of the front.”, has been trimmed and mounted, as has the colophon leaf. To a lesser degree the engraved title has also been trimmed a little. The printed title with the portrait of Raleigh, which was not issued in this edition, but a photocopy, is loosely laid in. Boards rubbed, the plates with minor discoloration along centerfolds from the glue used to reinsert, 1 plate laid on backing sheet repairing a few tears. A bit of minor staining, but internally very clean. Overall very good. Raleigh (1552?-1618) wrote “The History of the World” while he was imprisoned in the Tower of London during 1603-1616. He was convicted of treason against King James I, and beheaded in 1618. A copy of this work can still be found today in his study at the Tower of London. Raleigh’s history starts with the ancient world and ends with the rise of the Roman Empire. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Eder for Elisabeth Angermaria 1614 & 1615, Ingolstadt - First edition, in a beautiful contemporary binding, of Scheiner?s very rare work containing the second earliest map of the moon ? but the first to give topographical details ? as well as the first illustrations of a telescope. It builds upon Scheiner?s 1612 discovery of sunspots, made using a telescope he built himself, which led to his famous controversy with Galileo. This work discusses almost all the astronomical issues then current, especially those brought about by the newly invented telescope. There is an extensive argument against the notion of an infinite universe, illustrated by a striking full-page woodcut on p. 17 of ?Chaos infinitum ex atomis? surrounding the sphere of fixed stars. This is followed by a detailed examination of the Copernican heliocentric theory, as well as the Tychonic system, which he supported, and that of Fracastoro; the systems are illustrated by three large diagrams. Then follow discussions of the moon (including its ?secondary light?), the sun (with a full examination of sunspots), and the planets. On p. 58 is an extraordinary map of the moon, with craters and other features labelled and listed, including Mare Crisium, Mare Tranquilitatis, Mare Foecunditatis, Mare Nectaris and the crater Aristoteles. The only earlier maps of the moon are those published in Galileo?s Sidereus Nuncius (1610), but these are ?apparently but schematic views of what Galileo saw with his telescope, for none of the features recorded on them can be identified with certainty with any known formation? (Kopal, p. 62). This is followed by a chapter on Jupiter and its moons, with a series of Scheiner?s own observations illustrated on p. 79. Saturn and the phases of Venus conclude the work. On pages 87 and 89 a telescope is illustrated in the process of observing Saturn and the phases of Venus; these are the first illustrations of a telescope in use. Another illustration of a telescope was published in Simon Mayr's Mundus jovialis (Nuremberg 1614), which appeared at about the same time as the Disquisitiones (there are two issues of Mayr?s work, in the second of which Mayr responds to Scheiner?s Disquisitiones), but in Mayr?s work the telescope appears in a woodcut portrait of the author and is not shown in use. As was the custom, Scheiner wrote the dissertations for his students, including the present one, written for Johann Georg Locher. It was cited by Biancani in 1620, by Galileo in 1632 (in the Dialogo), by Mersenne in 1636, by Hevelius in 1647, and by Riccioli in 1651 (see Reeves, p. 205). ABPC/RBH list only the Streeter copy (bound in modern vellum) in the last 80 years (Christie?s, 16 April 2007, lot 460).Bound before Scheiner?s work is a dissertation on astronomy and against astrology written by Scheiner?s Jesuit Superior at Ingolstadt University, Adam Tanner. Tanner discusses the usefulness of telescopic observations and the relation of theology to astrology and to astronomy. The second part includes a discussion of Galileo?s discoveries announced in the Sidereus Nuncius. Scheiner worked with Tanner trying to make or obtain improved telescopes and, independently of Scheiner, Tanner observed sunspots in the autumn of 1611, having heard a rumour about Galileo?s observations. But Scheiner always maintained that his own first observations of sunspots had been made in the spring and without knowledge of Galileo?s. Tanner makes no mention of Scheiner?s activities in the present work, and on p. 49 credits Galileo with the first observation of sunspots: ?Assuredly the great astronomer Galileo, the first discoverer of these wonders of the skies, maintains that these spots which overshadow the sun ???[Scheiner (1573-1650)] was appointed professor of Hebrew and mathematics at Ingolstadt in 1610. The following year Scheiner constructed a telescope with which he began to make observations, and in March 1611 he detected the presence of spots on the sun. His religious superiors did not wish him to publish under his own name, lest

RARE FIRST EDITION OF RALEIGH'S MASSIVE WORK AND A CORNERSTONE WORK IN HISTORIOGRAPHY. ONE OF THE GREAT BOOKS PRINTED IN ENGLAND AT THE BEGINNING OF THE 1600's. This is the only volume published of the massive history Raleigh planned and began while in the Tower of London after the accession of James I. This is the earlier of the two editions having the colophon dated 1614, with the errata uncorrected. It was rigidly suppressed by order of King James I, but nevertheless passed through several editions. The engraved title was not issued with the second edition, which appeared in 1617, a printed title having a portrait of Raleigh taking its place. A reissue of the second edition appeared in 1621, and later editions in 1624, 1628, 1666, and 1684, 1687 and throughout the 18th century. This is the only volume published of the massive history Raleigh planned and began while in the Tower of London after the accession of James I. It was rigidly suppressed by order of King James I, but nevertheless passed through several editions. While most of his prose works up to then had been written fro private circulation[.] the HISTORY was intended for publication to a wide audience. Raleigh began writing it about 1607, the work was entered in the Stationers' register in 1611 and appeared towards the end of 1614. The preface was suppressed by George Abbot, archbishop of Canterbury, on 22 December and copies were seized by the kings' agents for this own use. According to Chamberlain the suppression came about because it was "too sawcie in censuring princes" [.] The suppression order was soon lifted and the History was reprinted in 1617. It remained popular: there were at least eleven editions in the seventeenth century, one in the eighteenth, and one in the nineteenth. Raleigh was one of the principal figures of the English Renaissance. As well as being a poet of wide repute and a successful soldier, he was one of the earliest explorers of the New World (one of its cities still bears his name).
