        La Magdelaine de F Remi de Beauvais EDITION ORIGINALE

      ABeauvais: ChezCharles Martin, 1617. Fine. ChezCharles Martin, ABeauvais 1617, (46) 746pp. (7), relié. - First edition, illustrated with a frontispiece and title of two beautiful figures Bound in brown full morocco late nineteenth signed Capé. Back to Jansenist nerves. Title, place and date of gilt. Large inner frieze. Gilt edges. Very nice copy, particularly fresh. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale, rare, illustrée d'un titre-frontispice et de deux belles figures. Impression en italiques. Reliure en plein maroquin brun fin XIXe signé Capé. Dos à nerfs janséniste. Titre, lieu et date dorés. Large frise intérieure. Tranches dorées. Très bel exemplaire, particulièrement frais. Au commencement du XVIIe siècle, et ce sur une période de 30 ans environ, il y eut dans la littérature une passion irraisonnée pour le poème du genre épique dont La Franciade de Ronsard fut une des origines, et on aurait du mal à dénombrer le nombre d'oeuvres dans ce domaine. Remy de Beauvais composa ainsi une épopée sur la vie de Madelaine en 20 livres, au moment de sa conversion. On ne peut qu'être admiratif du travail d'écriture, de la façon dont l'auteur use des Evangiles et reconstitue la vie de Marie-Madelaine, même si c'est en un style bien éloigné du modèle, hyperbolique, souvent emphatique et lyrique. Sur le même sujet et à la même époque, il y eut le Marie-Madelaine de Desmarets, et La Madelaine de Cotin, Les larmes de Saint Madelaine de Charles de Notre Dame, et d'autre encore (L'Italie connut le même sort durant la même période) ; Marie-Madelaine figurant le héros chrétien dont la vie est scandée par deux moments forts, la conversion et la pénitence. La littérature développait ainsi un certain nombre de héros chrétiens plus proches de la pensée spirituelle du XVIIe, elle cherchait à attribuer de grandes oeuvres littéraires à des personnages de la mythologie chrétienne, comme cela avait été fait pour les héros grecs et latins.

A rare work on Japanese?"Western affairs in the early 17th century; it stands as an early source book to the history of Japan. The history spans mostly through the years 1612 ?" 1615, and devotes itself to the progress of the Faith in the region, the Japanese, the causes of the persecution of Christians & converts, and the expulsion of the missionaries ?"with its effects- following the Tokugawa Ieyasu edict of 1614, which ordered the expulsion of the missionaries and marked the beginning of the end of the Christian Church in Japan. The work contains a list of the Christian martyrs from 1574 ?" 1615 and the location of the Jesuit missions in Japan. For Japanese history, this is also a most relevant work, as it is written during the years of the beginning of the Shogunate that would control the country for two centuries, ending a period of unrest and civil war by the different Daimyos. "Muy raro" (Palau).Piñeyro (1560 ?" 1620) was a Spanish Jesuit missionary; he is believed to have been in Japan during the years of gradually worsening relationships between the Shogunate and the Christian Church.Cordier Japonica, 290.

Young, Bibliogr. of Memory, pp.265 - 266. Yates, Art of Memory, pp.300 - 301. Rossi, Logic and the Art of Memory, p.92: «Between 1617 and 1619 (at the same time as the young Descartes began to express his interest in Lullism and the arts of memory) the works by Johannes Paepp were published in Lyons. One of these works, the Schenkelius detectus seu memoria artificialis hactenus occultata was a detailed commentary on Schenckel?s Ars memoriae, a work which Descartes knew well. In the Artificiosae memoriae fundamenta and the Introductio facilis in praxim artificiosae memoriae, Paepp set out to expound the Aristotelian, Ciceronian and Thomist doctrines on memory, but he had also patently been influenced by the Lullist tradition, and was familiar with its most significant exponents, from Bruno to Alsted. Following in the footsteps of Alsted, he fiercely criticized the denigrators of the art, and defended the idea of the interdependence of logic and mnemotechnics: while logic was necessary for some of the arts and disciplines, he argued, memory was indispensable for all forms of knowledge... A substantial part of his work is devoted to a discussion of the doctrines of Bruno...» An interesting collection of four rare works on artificial memory, all in first edition (second issue of the first one). Four titles printed in red and black, 3 finely engr. full - page coat of arms, nine full page text illustrations, and numerous tables and diagrams in the text. Small old stamp and owner's name on title, some mild toning of the paper, but generally a good copy in contemp. vellum, neatly recased.

        Erathosthenes Batavus. De Terrae ambitus vera quantitate.

      Leiden, Iodocus à Colster, 1617. 4to. Completely uncut, in the original interim boards, rebacked in matching paper and with leather cords. A bit of soiling to especially front board. Internally a nice, clean, fresh, and unrestored copy. (12), 263, (1) pp. Illustrated.. Very rare first edition of Snell's seminal magnum opus, in which he founded the modern systematic use of triangulation, thus also founding the modern art of map-making. It is due to his development of triangulation presented in the present work - a method that was used for accurate large-scale land surveying until the rise of global navigation satellite systems in the 1980'ies - that Snell may rightfully be called the father of triangulation. (D.S.B.). Despite Cassini's tables for accurately predicting the motions of Jupiter's moons, which allowed very accurate time measurements to be made, the riddle of longitude still needed another vital piece of information. The size and form of the earth were still uncertain: only one scientific experiment had been conducted to measure its circumference, by Willebrord Snell (1580-1626), in the early years of the seventeenth century.Snellius, as he is better known, was the son of a wealthy professor of mathematics at the University of Leiden in Holland, where young Snell himself studied law. But it was mathematics that intrigued him, and through his studies, he made considerable contributions to science. He is probably best remembered for the optical law of incidence and refraction named for him [which remained unpublished]. However, the most important of his works published in his lifetime was Eratosthenes Batavus, and it revolutionized the science of earth measuring. In 1615, emulating the principles of Eratosthenes 1,900 years before, Snellius had measured the length of a meridian arc by using a chain of thirty-three triangles, observed from the tops of churches, across the fields and hedgerows of the flat Dutch landscape. He had then measured the latitude at the north and south end of his chain of triangles. By calculation, assuming the earth perfectly spherical (as did all philosophers in those days), Snellius worked out a diameter for the earth that was just 3.4 percent smaller than modern values. Although not the first to use triangulation (that claim rightly belongs to Gemma Frisius 60 years earlier), Snell explicated the idea of measuring long distances over the ground by measuring the angles in a chain of triangles rather than by measuring the distance with a surveyor's chain. The method was also far more accurate and significantly speedier than physically measuring directly across the land. Snell's experiments, founded and aided by his patron, Baron Sterrenberg, demonstrated the accuracy of the method and proved conclusively that a framework of stations so developed could be used to control a mapping project. (Edwin Danson, Weighing the World: The Quest to Measure the Earth, pp. 21-22). In 1615, Snell became deeply involved in the determination of the length of the meridian. For his purpose, he selected the method of triangulation that had been used suggested by Gemma Frisius ab. half a century earlier, but Snell developed the method to such an extend that it was able to - for the first time in history - fairly accurately measuring the size of the earth. Snel developed it [i.e. triangulation] to such an extent that he may rightfully be called the father of triangulation (DSB). Starting with his own house, he used the spires of town churches as points of reference and thus, through a net of 33 triangles, computed the distance from Alkmaar to Bergen-op-Zoom (ab. 110 kilometers). The two towns were separated by one degree on the meridian, so from his measurement he was able to calculate a value for the circumference of the earth. His groundbreaking measurements and method were published for the first time in his seminal ''Eratosthenes Batavus (i.e. The Dutch Eratosthenes) in 1617. Snell calculated how the planar formulae could be corrected to allow for the curvature of the earth. He also showed how to resection, or calculate, the position of a point inside a triangle using the angles cast between the vertices at the unknown point. These could be measured much more accurately than bearings of the vertices, which depended on a compass. This established the key idea of surveying a large-scale primary network of control points first, and then locating secondary subsidiary points later, within that primary network.Apart from having discovered what is now know as Snell's law, Snell had also developed the method of determining distances by trigonometric triangulation and thus founded the modern art of mapmaking.

Rust-stain in quire D, small stain or adhesion on fol.

Provenance: Paris, Capuchins(?), early inscription at head of engraved title (cropped); Albin Ser[ai?]n - long signed note on front flyleaf, signature partially deleted.*** Only edition of a stupefyingly long poem on Mary Magdalene by an otherwise unknown Capucin friar and poetaster. The history of the work is provided in a preface to the reader by Marie de Longueval, a noblewoman and friend of the scribbling friar, who was probably her confessor. Mme. de Longueval had requested of Father Rémi a few verses on la Madeleine for her own diversion, and after a couple of initial sonnets in the light vein that she expected, the sonnets kept coming, and coming, and an epic work took shape, eventually reaching 20 books, of non-stop alexandrines. At Mme. de Longueval?'s request Rémi gave her his manuscripts. Originally written only for her, and for a small circle of friends, the work was too great, in her view, to keep from the public, and she feared that the manuscript could be lost or damaged, sitting in her cabinet ?"among her rings,?" so she persuaded the friar to let her publish it. The same circle of friends, no doubt, contributed laudatory verses, praising the monster as a masterpiece. Though inspired stylistically by Ronsard and the poets of the Pléiade, Rémi de Beauvais lacked their genius. A German scholar, Paul Dittmer, who analyzed this obscure work (the subject of his doctoral thesis) in an even more obscure publication, describes Rémi?'s endless, obsessive detours into dusty by-ways of erudition, his helpless use of onomatopoeias to fill out his lines, and his waves of empty words, which finally suffocate his readers and turn his sincere attempts at reverence into silly parodies. Not surprisingly, in spite of the colorful promise of its subject, the medieval Magdalene legend being filled with lonely sea-voyages, mass conversions, years in a cave in the south of France, and flying angels, Remi?'s oeuvre was soon forgotten. Luckily, it is illustrated. Most fetching is the engraving, signed by Martin Baes or Bass (cf. Thieme-Becker 2:348), of the Cappadocia-like mountains of the Sainte-Baume with the Saint?'s grotto, her soul being carried aloft by a pair of angels. The title appears also to be by Baes. The other plate, showing the penitent Magdalene, is unsigned. There appear to be different states of the edition: the Harvard copy has an errata leaf at the end, apparently not present in most copies, and the number of engravings seem to vary, with some copies having only one plate (Harvard) plus the title or no plates (Huntington), others with 3 plates (Mazarine, which also has a copy with 9 plates, described as by Jacques Grandhomme).

A prospectus preceded the publication of the dictionary, and is known by a single copy only (at the Bodleian Library). With Minsheu we have arrived at what has usually been regarded as the true beginning of subscription publication, and the first book prospectus. Minsheu's Guide was published in 1617, with a printed list of subscribers which was eventually to reach a total of 471 persons and institutions. Its issue preceded that of the book, and thus The Guide is the first book published by subscription after the issue of a prospectus (see Feather, English Book Prospectuses: An Illustrated History, Newton & Minneapolis, 1984, pp. 26-27). Minsheu's earlier works on the Spanish language had secured for him a reputation as a lexicographer, if not an income; this great lexicon stands alone as a guide to Elizabethan English, still useful today. Appended to the work, as issued, is Minsheu's A Most Copious Spanish Dictionarie with Latine and English, London, 1617.

        Histoire de l'expedition Chrestienne au royaume de la Chine entreprinse par les peres de la Compagnie de Iesus

      Pierre de Rache, Lille 1617 - (7 5/8 x 5 3/4 inches). Title printed in red and black. [12], 559, [5]pp. Contemporary vellum, spine titled in manuscript, expertly recased (small repair at head of spine) Provenance: Franciscan Monastery at Weert (small inked stamp on title) Second edition in French of the most important work on China published in the first half of the 17th century. "In 1615, the French Jesuit missionary Nicolas Trigault published De Christiana Expeditione apud Sinas Suscepta ab Societae Jesu . based on the reports and papers of Mateo Ricci, the Italian who carried the Jesuit mission in China beyond the Portuguese trading colony at Macau to the mainland. Ricci lived and worked in Canton and Nanjing, among other places, and died in Beijing in 1610. This chronicle about the Western mission in China from 1583-1611 also provided a systematic portrait of contemporary Chinese society as perceived by Ricci, who was fluent in Chinese and exhibited both a sympathetic interest in Chinese culture and an erudite perspective on the Jesuits' accomplishments. De Christiana Expeditione was among the most important and widely read books on China published during the seventeenth century. French, German, Spanish and Italian translations quickly appeared, but not English" ( China on Paper , p. 10). The first French edition was published in Lyon in 1616, translated by D. F. de Riquebourg-Trigault (a nephew of Nicholas Trigault) with the present second edition following. All early editions are rare. The work "became the most influential description of China to appear during the first half of the seventeenth century . [and] provided European readers with more, better organized, and more accurate information about China than was ever before available" (Lach and Van Kley). Cordier Sinica 809-810; Sommervogel, VIII, 240; Streit V:717; Lach and Van Kley, Asia in the Making of Europe, vol. III, pp. 512-513. [Attributes: First Edition]

      Venice, Nicolo Misserini, 1617.. 4to. (10) leaves, 1055 p., (4) leaves, 4 full-page engravings (206, 240, 588, 658). Title-page with two very old stamps and one from the 20th century. Light marginal waterstaining to the first quarter of the book. 18th century Italian half calf, spine richly gilt.Rare like all early editions of Jacopone.This is the the third type of early Jacopone editions; the first beeing the Bonaccorsi edition published Florence 1490 - from which the 1588 and 1615 are derived-, the second the 1495 Brescia edition - from which the editions of 1514 and 1556 are derived. The editor of our edition, Francesco Tresatti, has added his own copiously commentaries to each poem, and has enlarged the corpus of the Laude to 211, thus publishing more then 120 poems not of Jacopone's origin but belonging to what is called the Jacoponian school - most of these poems printed here for the first time. For Jacopone and his followers in style and thought and thus for our edition see Rosanna Bettarini, Jacopone e il laudario urbinate, Florence 1969..

      London, Felix Kyngston 1617. (engraved titlepage, 58) 351 p. Contemporary Leather, 4° (with a new spine underneath the old one. John Bernard 1568-1641 was a Puritan pastor and writer who produced mostly practical works. His most influential work was The Faithfull Shepheard and his practice (1607 and 1621), a handbook for ministers. He also produced several catechisms and a commentary on Revelation. His most popular work The Isle of Man (1627) reached its sixteenth edition in 1683 and was reprinted in the 19th Century. His Faithfull Shepheard rivalled Baxter's Reformed Pastor and his Isle of Man may have inspired Bunyan's Holy War. Bernard also wrote against separatism on one hand and prelatic imposition of ceremonies and popery on the other.).
