BRAUN GEORG - HOGENBERG FRANZ.
Incisione in rame, mm 310x480. Una fra le più rare incisioni del Theatrum, pubblicata alla fine del percorso editoriale. Fascinosa veduta panoramica a volo d'uccello dello Stretto. In basso un'ampia legenda ed una descrizione in latino; la veduta raffigura a sinistra Reggio e a destra la Sicilia con Messina in primo piano. Tratta da "Civitates Orbis Terrarum", pietra miliare del vedutismo, stampata dal 1572 al 1617 in 6 volumi pubblicati in anni differenti in varie lingue, compilata e scritta da Georg Braun, mentre Frans Hogenberg fu autore delle incisioni insieme a Simon Novellanus, generalmente da soggetti di Georg Hoefnagel. Ottimo esemplare------------------------------Copper engraving, mm 310x480. Fascinating bird's-eye view, that shows clearly the Strait with Messina in foreground on the right handside with many vessels sailing. Among the rarest prints from the Theatrum, published in 1617, last year of printing of this milestone of topography.Braun gathered together vast amounts of information and draft plans to produce over 500 city views/maps published in six parts between 1572 and 1617. Most of these engravings were made by Simon Novellanus and Frans Hogenberg, many after drawings by Georg Hoefnagel. Very good example.

Plusieurs soulignements en rouge et annotations manuscrites marginales de l'époque. Dans la lignée des grands ouvrages d'éducation princière, Constantin dédia ce livre à son fils Romain II.

CONSTANTIN
First edition of the publication of Johannes Van Meurs, printed in Greek and Latin. It contains in particular the De administrando imperio which despite a general title at the date of 1617, wears the colophon date of printing of 1611. This text, known thanks to manuscripts, had never been printed before.Contemporary binding in full vellum red speckled lapel, smooth back with a title pen, all slices flecked with red.Several red underlines and marginal handwritten annotations of the time.In line with the great works of princely education, Constantine dedicated this book to his son Roman II. The emperor deals mainly with the diplomatic relations of the Empire with his neighbors and explains to his heir how to manipulate the enemies so that they neutralize each other. Constantin also evokes in this work the famous Greek fire, enjoining Romain II to never reveal the secrets carefully guarded of its manufacture.Copy of Colbert presenting, at the front of the front page, the ex-libris of his library handwritten by his librarian Etienne Baluze.Like his patron Cardinal Mazarin, Colbert brings together one of the most important and beautiful libraries in France that he never stopped enriching until the end of his life. Bibliomane before the hour, he mandated numerous correspondents charged to unearth the works not only in province, but across all Europe.Two months after the death of Jean-Baptiste Colbert in 1683, his family commissioned an inventory of the books in his library, made up of more than 20,000 printed volumes and more than 8,000 ancient manuscripts.

( 36 X 24 cms.)Text and commentary in double columns. Cyprian was a bishop of Carthage, martyr, and Latin writer. As an early Christian writer, his works were of less importance only to St. Augustine and St. Jerome. His significance can be seen in his relation to his views of the lapsed, rebaptism of heretics, his role resisting the Decian persecution, and his eventual martyrdom by the forces of Emperor Valerian. His writings "give a vivid picture of Christian life in Carthage, especially during the persecutions, and throw light on the organization of the Church not only in Africa from Mauretania to Tripolitania, but also in Spain, Gaul, and Rome itself. At the same time they reveal the character and activities of Cyprian, a bishop often in peril of … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.). <br><br>"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.<br><br>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 importan … [Click Below for Full Description]

DOD, JOHN/CLEAVER, ROBERT
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. 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 Jam … [Click Below for Full Description]
