First edition, folio, [16], 543, [1], [187]; title within woodcut border, text in double and quadruple column; handsome 18th century full reversed calf with a nice, large blindstamped central panel; maroon morocco label on spine; a very good, sound copy, with an early ownership signture on the title page of "Thos.

SCHENCKEL, Lambert [and Johannes PAEPP].
VD17 14:631160D (2 copies); Yates, Art of memory, p. 301. Very rare third edition of Johannes Paepp's detailed commentary on Schenkel's Ars memoria, first published in 1617 as Schenckelius detectus, seu memoria artificialis hactenus occultata. The Dutch humanist Lambert Schenkel (1547-1625) was a great master of the art of memory and his teachings were so efficient that he was once accused of heresy by the Catholic Church. "Schenkel had a disciple and imitator, one Johannes Paepp. The works on memory of this Paepp are deserving of rather careful attention because he plays a role which may be vulgarly described as letting the cat out of the bag. He, as he describes it, 'detects Schenkel' or reveals the secret of the occult memory hidden in Schenkel's books. This purpose is stated in the title of his first book .... And he continued the good work of 'detecting Schenkel' in two subsequent publications" (Yates).While the present third edition names "Arnoldi Backhusy" on the title-page, he appears to have done nothing except add the dedication to the physician Johannes Meiboom: the main text largely matches the second edition. With a 1659 owner's inscription and a library stamp. A very good copy, with the fore-edge margin of the title-page folded inward and a minor water stain throughout in the lower margin. Binding very good as well.

Altdorf Academy
Nuremberg: Abr. Wagenman, 1617. First edition thus. Engraved title printed in red and black, and 159 engraved plates of medallic devices by Johannes Sibmacher inset to text throughout, engraved head and tail pieces. [8], 540, [44] pp. 8vo. Hoe copy. Described as "Editio II," this is actually an enlarged edition of a work original published in 1597, documenting prize medals made for students of the Altdorf academy in Nuremberg. "The most remarkable example of [emblems and numismatics coming together] is the collection of prize medals from the Altdorf academy .... These medals were not only given to talented pupils as a reward for their study achievements, but also served as an instrument in teaching rhetorical skills. Each year several pupils were selected to deliver an oration interpreting the image depicted on the obverse of the medal. The images of the medals and the texts of the orations were published ... in two books as Emblemata anniversaria (Nuremberg, 1597 and 1617). The illustrations were made by Johannes Sibmacher ..." (Visser, Joannes Sambucus and the Learned Image, p. 45). Provenance: Robert Hoe (morocco bookplate). Tan calf, spine elaborately gilt, a.e.g., marbled endpapers. Minor rubbing to binding, fine.

Numerosi diagrammi incisi lungo il volume. PRIMA RARA EDIZIONE. Giovanni Antonio Baranzano o Redempto Baranzano, fu un monaco barnabita piemontese, essendo nato a Serravalle, fu professore di filosofia e matematica e fu molto lodato da Bacon. Nell’Uranoscopia, Baranzano si fece sostenitore e divulgatore delle tesi copernicane, convinto che la scienza avrebbe trovato nella potenza della Chiesa un appoggio al proprio sviluppo. La teoria copernicana fu dichiarata incompatibile con la fede cattolica ed i libri che ne sostenevano la validità condannati. Baranzano fu costretto a ritrattare e poi fu trasferito a Montargis nel Lorient, a un centinaio di chilometri da Parigi, dove morì nel 1622 di violentissime febbri. Cfr. DSB, "In 1617 Baranzano published his most important work, Uranoscopia seu De coelo, in which he defended the Copernican system. This book was not well received by the Church, however, and Baranzano was called to Milan by the archbishop to make corrections. It is of some interest that he took with him on this occasion a letter written by his good friend Francis de Sales, testifying to his merits. Baranzano was indeed capable of progressive thought but was nevert … [Click Below for Full Description]

"New Emperor Chronicle or History Book of All Roman Emperors, Eastern and Western". In 17th century Dutch, this is the longest book title we have!

SNELLIUS, WILLEBRORD (SNELL; SNELL van ROYEN). - [MEASURING THE EARTH - FOUNDING THE MODERN ART OF MAPMAKING]
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 publ … [Click Below for Full Description]

SPENSER, Edmund
1617 Edmund Spenser Shepheards Calendar Elizabethan Poetry Queen Elizabeth “He that strives to touch the stars oft stumbles at the straw.” Edmund Spenser, The Shepherd’s Calendar Edmund Spenser is one of the most well-known 16th-century English poets. While he is most known for ‘The Faerie Queene,’ his first major poetic work was ‘The Shepheardes Calendar.’ Enamored by the works of Virgil, Spenser began working a series of pastoral poems modeling Virgil’s ‘Eclogues’. He discusses abuses in the church, praises for Queen Elizabeth, and descriptions of the rustic life of shepherds. However, the most important aspect of this work is that it was played a critical role in the naturalization of the English language and literary techniques.

CARRERA PIETRO.
Militello, per Giovanni Rossi da Trento, 1617. In - 4°; 556 pp., errore di numerazione tra p. 352 e 357, 44 cc.; legatura coeva in tutta pergamena, titolo manoscritto al dorso. Restauro al margine inferiore bianco del titolo, qualche fioritura, segnetto di tarlo restaurato al margine inferiore interno bianco di una decina di carte centrali. Alcune interessanti antiche postille e note lungo il testo. Firma di appartenenza anticamente cassata al titolo. Prima edizione di quello che, a ragione, è considerato uno dei più rari ed importanti libri sugli scacchi. "Carrera (Don Pierre), Sicilien, mort en 1647, était un des plus habiles joueurs d'échecs de son temps. Son traité d'échecs: 'Il gioco de gli scacchi' - in Militello, 1617, est un des plus recherchés; il y donne des remarques curieuses sur l'origine du jeu des échecs, sur la maniére d'apprendre à jouer sans voir l'échiquier et y fait mention des plus forts joueurs de son temps qui jouaient de la sorte. Il attribue l'invention des échecs à Palamède. Cet ouvrage a été commenté par la plupart des recueils d'échecs. Carrera, dans ses 'Avvertimenti' recommande aux joueurs d'échecs de ne point trop manger et de se purger avant de commencer a se mettre à jouer, afin d'avoir l'esprit libre." (Gay, Bibl. Du jeu des échecs). Chicco - Sanvito 157. Mira: "Questo è il migliore e più completo trattato sugli scacchi. Raro e molto stimato. Moncada 498.

SNEL [SNELLIUS or SNEL VAN ROYEN], Willebrord.
George Abrahamsz van Maarssen for Jodocus Colster, Leiden, 1617. 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. This was Captain Thomas James, after whom … [Click Below for Full Description]

KEPLER, Johannes.
Johannes Plank [1617-1619], Linz. First edition, very rare and with an exceptional royal provenance, of Kepler?s Ephemerides for the years 1617-1620. These were the first tables of astronomical data calculated by Kepler on the basis of the new celestial mechanics he had published in Astronomia nova (1609), and also the first calculated using logarithms, preceding by a decade the Tabulae Rudolphinae (1627). The accuracy and reliability of Kepler?s ephemerides greatly surpassed those of other ephemerides of the time; as a result, the Copernican doctrine gained in esteem, and it was more and more accepted that it was not just a new and useful mathematical hypothesis, but a reflection of reality. In his important introductions to the tables, Kepler discusses sunspots (including his claim to have been the first of the century to observe them), his lunar theory, the application of logarithms (the ephemeris of 1620 is dedicated to their inventor, Napier), the camera obscura (which for Kepler was of great importance to astronomy), the final chapter in Kepler?s relations with the friend-turned-critic David Fabricius, and many other topics of the greatest interest in the history of science. ?Already in 1609, at the time his Astronomia nova appeared, Kepler had formulated the plan of publishing ephemerides giving daily positions of the Sun, Moon, and planets for eighty years, beginning in 1582 with Tycho?s first systematic observations of the planets; the calculated positions would be derived from Tycho?s observations and from the new celestial physics that Kepler had developed in the … [Click Below for Full Description]

Refs: Cordier Japonica, 290. Palau 226932 'Muy raro'; Streit-Dindinger V, 1163. <br> Pineyro's history of the Jesuit Mission in Japan covers the period between 1612 and 1615, in five books. In 1614, the Tokugawa Shogun, Ieyasu expelled Christian missionaries from Japan, in an attempt to stop Christian evangelist efforts started in 1549. Foreigners were banished and Kirishitans (Japanese Christians) were persecuted from religious practice or made to flee to Macau or the Philippines. Before the start of the persecution and martyrdom of Christians by Hideyoshi (Ieyasu's predecessor), Japan had the largest Christian population not ruled by a European country. Pineyro was believed to be in Japan during this period and wrote first-hand about the deterioration of Japanese relations and ultimate destruction of most of the Christian community.

(46),1896 coloumns (=948 pp.),(24) pp. Occasionally a faint dampstain to lower margins, mostly to Index-leaves. From the library of the Benedictine Monastery "Benediktbeuern" south of Munich. On titlepage in old hand "Monasterij Benedictoburanj." and on htitle "Iste Liber est Monasterij Benechten..." ? ¶ The scarce first edition of Alcuin's "Opera".<br><br>Alcuin is the most prominent figure of the Carolingian Renaissance, in which three main periods have been distinguished: in the first of these, up to the arrival of Alcuin at the court, the Italians occupy a central place; in the second, Alcuin and the Anglo-Saxons are dominant; in the third (from 804), the influence of Theodulf, the Visigoth is preponderant.<br><br>We owe to him, too, manuals used in his educational work - a grammar and works on rhetoric and dialectics. They are written in the form of dialogues and in two of them the interlocutors are Charlemagne and Alcuin. He wrote several theological treatises: a De fide Trinitatis, commentaries on the Bible, etc.<br><br>Alcuin transmitted to the Franks the knowledge of Latin culture which had existed in Ango-Saxon England. A number of his works still exist. His letters and his poetry are equally interesting. Besides some graceful epistles in the style of Venantius Fortunatus … [Click Below for Full Description]

Band des großen Kupferstichwerks von Georg Braun und Franz Hogenberg. Sie wurde von Jakob Hoefnagel selbst als verkleinerte Kopie seiner großen Vogelschau von 1609 ausgeführt. "Die Vogelschau zeigt die Stadt etwa von Nordnordost, über den Donauarm hinweg, von einem stark überhöhten Blickpunkt aus. Umrahmt von der weiteren Umgebung wird die Stadt höchst detailreich und exakt wiedergegeben. Durch den hohen Blickpunkt erhält man nicht nur eine Vorstellung von der Befestigung und den Kirchtürmen, wie bei früheren Abbildungen der Stadt. Auch die einzelnen Häuser im Stadtinneren werden minutiös vorgeführt. Da die großen Veränderungen des Wiener Stadtbildes, die in der Barockzeit einsetzten, noch nicht begonnen hatten, gilt die Vogelschau heute als eine der wesentlichen Geschichtsquellen auch für das Aussehen der gotischen Stadt" (Wien Geschichte Wiki).

Minucci was an Italian priest from an aristocratic family. He read canon law in Padua where he met Antonio Possevino. In 1585 he was appointed prothonotary apostolic by Pope Sixtus V and in 1595 became archbishop of Zadar in Croatia. His numerous theologian and historical-political works show his wide knowledge. The addition by Paolo Sarpi, describing historical events until 1617, was first published anonymously. Important Venetian author, scholar and theologian, Sarpi was a learned monk of the Servite order living during Venice’s conflict with Pope Paul V. After becoming the Provincial of Venice (1579) he spent time in Rome studying the decrees of the Council of Trent.

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. (F. de Nave, Philologia arabica, pp.150-51).
