Leyden, voor Guiliaem Brewster, 1617. (6) 183 folia. Origineel overslaand Perkament, 4° (Vernieuwd schutblad achterin, plaatselijk vochtvlekken. Zeldzame uitgave van de eerste Nederlandse druk van dit puriteinse werk over de Tien Geboden door John Dod en Robert Cleaver. Het werk is uitgegeven door de later zo genoemde 'Pilgrim Press' te Leiden onder de leiding van William Brewster, 1568-1644. Brewster was een van de Pilgrimleiders welke toevlucht had gezocht in Nederland, voor korte tijd te Amsterdam en later voor ruim 10 jaar te Leiden alwaar hij met de hulp van Thomas Brewer de rol van drukker en uitgever op zich nam. De Pilgrim Press was van 1617 tot en met 1619 operationeel en publiceerde en drukte Puriteinse klassieken en nieuwe Puriteinse uitgaven, maar voornamelijk radicale separistische en polemische werken welke illegaal werden verspreid in Engeland. Rond de 20 werken worden geassocieerd met de Pilgrim Press, echter maar drie van deze werken -waaronder dit werk- dragen de naam van Brewster. Een zeldzame uitgave met een belangrijke historische achtergrond.) (6) 183 folia. Contemporary folding Vellum, 4° (Renewed endpapers in the back of the work, waterstains at some places.

ERPENIUS, Th.
Leiden, Ex Typographia Erpeniana, 1617. 4to. [viii],157,[2 = Index] pp. Modern laced vellum. (sporadic marginal slight waterstains, but a very good copy.) Erpenius, the well-known scholar and professor in the near eastern languages at Leiden since 1613. He died in 1624. Edition of two Arabic grammatical treatises: 1. The Ajurrumiya or Gjarumia, compiled by Muhammad bin Muhammad al-Sanhaji (+1323), a classic introduction to phonology. This is the FIRST VOCALIZED EDITION (earlier unvocalized editions published in 1592 and 1610). 2. The Hundred Rules of Syntax or Mi'at'al-amil by Abd a'-Quahir al-Jurjani (+1078). EDITIO PRINCEPS. "Erpenius was the first to fully comprehend the terminology of the Arab grammarians, and with this work, that was intended for scholars well versed in Arabic, he translated these in Latin. In this way he was the first to demonstrate the grammatical principles of Arabic to the Western world."(F.de Nave, Philologia Arabica p.160-161) Since the Raphelengius family was not capable anymore of printing Hebrew, Arabic etc. books, Erpenius decied to found his own near eastern printing press. The Arabic, Hebrew, Coptic etc. types he had made were quite elegant, and more economic and practical in use than the ones of Raphelengius. Erpenius' type was sold posthumously to the Elsevier printers, and later the Enschedé family. Of the type used for this Grammatica Arabica, 142 stamps and 143 moulds are still extant.

SNEL [SNELLIUS or SNEL VAN ROYEN], Willebrord.
Leiden: George Abrahamsz van Maarssen for Jodocus Colster, 1617. First edition. Hardcover. First edition of Snel's most important work. This was "the foundation of modern geodesy" (Galileo Project) and of great significance in the history of navigation. "With the development of their oceanic commerce, the Dutch became very interested in the most accurate possible determination of the length of a degree of longitude. A professor of mathematics at the University of Leiden, Snel undertook the task using the method of triangulation first proposed by Gemma Frisius in 1533 but developed by Snel to such an extent that he may rightfully be called one of its founders. He measured the distance between Alkmaar and Bergen-op-Zoom, which lay approximately on the same meridian, and also the distance between the parallels of Alkmaar and Leiden, and from the mean of these two measurements calculated the length of a degree to be 352,347 feet, a more accurate reckoning than any previous attempt. Snel also solved the so-called recession problem for three points, a problem often named after him. The title of his book pays tribute to the Greek mathematician Eratosthenes, who was famous for his measurement of the circumference of the earth" (Norman). "His figure [for the length of a degree] showed the great error in the popular figure of 300,000 feet, which up to then was used by navigators. One navigator, at all events, was quick to see the advantage of using the lately calculated and more accurate figure, and used it upon his voyage to discover the North West Passage, in 1633.

In 1592 he issued "De Planis Triangulis" by describing the Quadrant. Magini also maufactured an atlas of Italy which has been issued by his son in 1620. The moon craterMagnius was named after Magini. Claudius Ptolemy ( arround 100- 160 a.C.) Geographia, gives a list of geographic coordinates of spherical longitude and latitude of almost ten thousand point locations on the earth surface, as they were known at his times. The list is organized in Tabulae which cor- respond to specific regions of the three known continents at that time, Africa, Asia and Europe. Research on Ptolemyís Geographia has started at the University of Thessaloniki, Greece, in the eighties, focused mainly, but not exclusively, on data re- lated to territories which are now under the sovereignty of the modern Greek state. The World of Ptolemy is classified in Regions, since each Chapter is referred to one of them, giving by this way the concept of Atlas as it is understood today.

Minsheu, John
London: at Mr. Browne's a book-binder in Little Britain without Aldersgate, n.d. (ca. 1617). Folio broadsheet, approx. 15¼" x 10¼", the gutter margin with neat repair to what must have been stitch marks, indicating that this was at one time bound. 2 pp. Large historiated initial "A" in fine woodcut. The first printed Subscribers List, issued separately, for the first edition of the first book printed by subscription. 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). At least 12 variants of the present Subscribers List are known "including four settings printed and expanded over a three-year period," distinguished by the last name on the list (in our copy that name is "Mr. Welles"). The present list is STC 17944a(9).

CAMPANELLA, Tommaso (1568-1639). -
Frankfurt, Bringer (& Tampach), 1617. In-4. Cartonatura marmorizzata moderna. (24) pp., pp. 25-86; 2 antichi timbretti sul frontespizio e lieve alone d'umidità sui primi 4 fogli. Assai rara prima edizione di una delle prime opere a stampa del Campanella; scritta nel 1595, gli fu sequestrata con tutti i suoi altri manoscritti per ordine del Santo Uffizio quando fu imprigionato. Campanella «si trovò in un certo qual senso disorientato dalla gravissima perdita e, prima di accingersi ad un vero rifacimento... sentì il bisogno di annotare frettolosamente, in compendio, i fondamenti del lavoro sequestratogli» (Firpo). Come tanti altri trattati del filosofo, anche questo venne pubblicato in Germania da Tobia Adami che se ne era procurato una copia a Padova nel 1611; «il libretto, (è) preceduto da una diffusa e calorosa Praefatio dell'editore ai filosofi tedeschi e da un sonetto del Campanella all'Adami...» (DBI XVII, p. 386). Firpo, Campanella, 3. Caillet 1978. Thorndike VII, 292. Rare first edition. Two 19th century stamps on title and a light damp stain on first 4 leaves. Modern boards.

Titeleinfassung vor . Der 'Prodromus' ist ein Jugendwerk Campanellas, in dem "die sinnliche Erfahrung .zum Ankerpunkt der Reflexion" (G. Höffe) wird. .

Venezia, Valentini & Giuliani, 1617. 4°, circa 22 x 16 cm., 4 ff., 80 pp. - 106 pp., 3 (blank) ff. - 4 ff., 90 pp., 1 blank f.. Later vellum using an old French manuscript Sammelband with the three satirical works by Garzoni (1549-1589), all dealing with the deficiencies or extravagances of the human brain. - 1. Third edition (first 1589) of this collection of anecdotes and little stories showing human ignorance. Major sources were the Adagia by Erasmus and the Hieroglyphica by Valeriano Bolzani. Cf. Gamba, Novelle 116 and Papanti I 167. - 2. Curious and very original work about different kinds of brains and their peculiarities; first published in 1583 (cf. Gamba, Novelle 116 and Passano 217). Garzoni differentiates between calm brains (Plato, Aristoteles), courageous and pugnacious brains (Scipio, Ariosto), cheerful brains (Epicurus and Socrates) or astute brains (like Cicero). The collection is a precursor to Garzoni s Piazza universale. - 3.
