HUES, Robert. D[enis] HENRION, translator.
Paris: Abraham Pacard, 1618. 8vo (170 × 110 mm), pp. [viii], 184. Woodcut device to title, other ornaments, letterpress tables. Lightly browned throughout, old waterstain to outer margin of preliminary leaves. Contemporary vellum, soiled, the vellum perished or gnawed at lower inch of fore-edges of both covers, endpapers frayed. Old library markings, including stamp to title and verso of final leaf (Université Egyptienne). First edition in French of Tractatus de globis (1594), an important navigational work originally dedicated to Sir Walter Raleigh. Hues had studied at Oxford where he became acquainted with Richard Hakluyt and later, Walter Raleigh and Thomas Harriot, before taking part in a voyage to Newfoundland. In five parts, the book describes the practical uses of the globes designed by Molyneux and, especially, how mariners could find the sun's position, latitude, course and distance, amplitudes and azimuths, and time and declination. The fifth part describes the use of rhumb lines in navigation. The translation is by Denis Henrion, the Paris mathematician remembered for his edition of the works of Viète and for the introduction of the calculating device known as the proportional compass to France. Henrion's is a faithful translation with numerous interpolations of his own (indicated by italics). In these, Henrion adds several practical details to the methods of calculation but also takes the opportunity to advertise his Cosmographie, which was not to appear until two years later. At several points he affirms Hues' text while stating 'comme nous avons enseigné en n … [Click Below for Full Description]

[GALILEI, Galileo] GUIDUCCI, Mario.
First edition, thick paper copy (the Landau-Galleti copy), of this famous work contributing to the 'controversy of the comets' which was of great importance in Galileo's scientific career. Guiducci, who became Galileo's assistant in 1618, allowed Galileo to publish under his name the <I>Discorso delle comete</i> of 1619 which attacked Orazio Grassi's <i>De tribus cometis</i> (1619), a work which expressed an absurd theory of cometary motion and several other invalid scientific theories. Galileo used Guiducci's name partly due to his own ill health, and partly on account of the admonition he had received from the Inquisition in February 1616. Grassi replied later in the same year with yet another work entitled <i>iLibra astronomica</i> which contained personal attacks on both Galileo and Guiducci and deliberately misrepresented Galileo's opinions on comets as expressed in the <i>Discorso delle comete</i>. In turn, Galileo published his <i>Il Saggiatore</i> and Guiducci his <i>Lettera al M.R.P. Tarquinio Galluzzi</i>.<br/><br/> VERY RARE: according to American Book Prices Current, only three other copies have sold in the last thirty years: Honeyman (1979), Riccardi (1986) and Frank S. Streeter (2007). <br/><br/> Provenance: Bookplate of Baron Horace de Landau (1824-1903). Landau was a Hungarian citizen who represented the Rothschild bank in Turin, and who formed a large and important library in Florence. Stamp of the Galletti collection - a museum of Galileana, which included busts, portraits and books, formed in the 1870s by Conte Paolo Galletti in the Torre del Gallo, where … [Click Below for Full Description]

Il y met en scène quatre interlocuteurs, représentant chacun une condition sociale, effectuant ensemble un voyage qui les conduit de Madrid à Barcelone puis jusqu'en Italie. Les quatre voyageurs ont mille sujets de conversation: les femmes, l'amour, l'armée, la vie estudiantine, les métiers, la politique, la littérature, la poésie, le théâtre et les théories dramatiques, les écrivains à la mode. toute une époque défile dans ces tableaux de moeurs brossés avec beaucoup de piquant et d'alacrité.

MARINO. (Giovanni Bapttista)
IN MILANO, Appresso Gio. Batt. Bidelli. 1618. In 12º (13x7,5 cm) com (xxxiii)-268 pags. Encadernação da época inteira de pele com ferros a ouro na lombada. Corte por folhas carminado. Exemplar com vestígios de traça no interior (sem afectar texto) e na lombada com perfurações. Obra sobre música e pintura. [EN] In 12º (13x7,5 cm)with (xxxiii)-268 pags. Binding: contemporary full calf gilt at spine. Papercut redish at edges. Copy with slightly worming (no damageon thetext) and minor holes at spine. Giovani Battista Marino (Naples 1569-1625) considered the greatest representative of Baroque poetry in Italy, called by his name marinista. The Dicerie sacre (1614) is an anthology in the style of a chart of prose (sermons) much appreciated, reunited through various themes of classical literature – as huge sermons that have little to do with religion - applying the metaphors of classical mythology, a specialty mariniana widely imitated during the Baroque. The Dicerie Sacre are divided into three parts: 1. Painting 2. Music, 3. The Sky The subjects are pleasing to the modern reader by the eloquence and the aesthetics of human experience and artistic therein. The lack of studies and modern editions of the works of Marino is a case virtually unique among Italian writers, and considered embarrassing for the Italian culture. [IT] Giovani Battista Marino (Napoli 1569-1625) considerato il massimo rappresentante della poesia barocca in Italia, identificata, dal suo nome, anche come marinismo.

Hamburg, Et prostant Francofurti, Apud Rulandios, 1618. Folio. Lovely contemporary full calf binding with 6 raised bands to gilt spine. Double gilt line-borders to boards. Small paper label to foot of spine. Minor wear to extremities. Inner hinge a bit weak. Old engraved book-plate to inside of front board, and a small later bookplate underneath (Dampierre). Even browning throughout. A very nice copy. Woodcut printer's device to title-page. Woodcut head- and tail-pieces. Woodcut initials. Text in Greek and Latin parallell-columns. Some leaves uncut. (36), 526 pp.. Very rare first edition of Proclus' groundbreaking main work, "Plato's Theology", being the editio princeps of both the original Greek text and the Latin translation, together with the editio princeps of the original Greek text of his seminal "Elements of Theology". "Plato's Theology" constitutes Proclus' main extant work and is one of the most important works of Neoplatonism (second in importance only to Plotinus' Enneads); together with his "Elements of Theology", it is his most systematic philosophical work and it provides us with the ultimate exposition of his own system, which is the epitome of Neoplatonism. It constitutes a concise summa of the Neoplatonic system in its fully developed form and thereby also represents the culmination of the final stage of Greek culture. The present publication, which represents one of the single most important productions in the history of Neoplatonism, is edited by Aemilius Portus.

SCHOUTEN, Willem Corneliszoon
Amsterdam,: Guillaume Janson Blaeu, 1618.. Small quarto, with nine engraved folding maps and plates, some light staining and a blemish in a few upper margins but a very good copy in period style crushed morocco, spine gilt in compartments between raised bands. The first edition in French of this rare and important book, preceded only by the original Dutch versions of the same year (Amsterdam and Arnhem issues). Very many editions were to follow.This is the celebrated account of the Le Maire and Schouten expedition westward across the Pacific to the Indies, during which they discovered a new navigable passage south of Cape Horn. The maps, and particularly the well-known folding chart of a largely empty Pacific Ocean, demonstrate the magnitude of the achievement of Schouten and Le Maire in crossing the ocean from east to west, in order to reach the Spice islands without straying into the territories controlled by the monopolistic Dutch East India Company.Schouten and Le Maire named Cape Horn when they rounded it in 1616, visited several of the Tuamotus, and were the first westerners to visit the Tonga islands. They then coasted New Ireland and New Guinea on their way to the Spice Islands and eventually Batavia.The importance of the book to contemporary geographical understanding cannot be overstated; it was 'the last seventeenth-century expedition to search for Terra Australis from the east' (Schilder). The voyage was made under the auspices of the newly formed group of Dutch traders known as the Australian Company, set up to compete with the Dutch East India Company and to s … [Click Below for Full Description]

BOTERO, Giovanni
Venice,: Alessandro de Vecchi, 1618., 1618.. Small thick quarto, with 32 woodcuts in the "Aggiunta" section; some marginal repairs in the "Aggiunta" and two of the leaves crudely coloured, inkstains to another; lacking eight text leaves in the main work and four leaves of index, but the "Aggiunta" section complete; old quarter vellum. First of two editions, both very rare. This wonderful book, printed early in the seventeenth century, contains a remarkable series of woodcuts actually prepared in the sixteenth century but not then published. Wormholes in the actual woodblocks that show clearly in the printing suggest that the blocks lay idle for a substantial time. These haunting images, partly the work of the artist Hans Burgkmair, represent the general European perception of the mysteries of the undiscovered worlds to the east and south. Woodcuts of the creatures likely to be found inhabiting these lands are accompanied by others of actual native peoples encountered on a real voyage, without much distinction being drawn between real and imaginary. These weird imaginings include numerous remarkable evolutionary fantasies such as the skiapod whose immense foot has developed to shield him from the fierce sun, and numerous permutations of man-beast combinations.The eighth part of this posthumous edition of Botero's chronicle contains these thirty-two sixteenth-century woodcuts, which depict "Monsters and Customs of the Indies, with their King including lively illustrations of them". Fifteen cuts portray monsters or "Prodigies", while seventeen illustrate actual natives of Indi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Eccellente impressione dell'opera del sommo storico greco, già tradotto dal grande Henri Estienne e poi ancora da Jungermann nel 1608, l'edizione che si presenta è la summula delle due voluta dal figlio di Henri, Paul, e risulta a giudizio di tutti i critici la migliore edizione finallora impressa, citata anche come Un livre de choix et dune grande importance philologique et linguistique.

LOCKE, John (1632-1704). - Willem Corneliszoon SCHOUTEN (d.1625)
Paris: Chez M. Gobert, 1618. 8vo. 4 folding maps, 4 folding plates. (Signature "E" supplied from another copy). Contemporary vellum, manuscript title on spine, modern morocco-backed slipcase. John Locke's copy of the rare first Paris edition of "Willem Schouten's voyage around the world, during which Cape Horn was discovered and rounded for the first time" (Hill): a landmark voyage in the history of western exploration. Schouten's voyage was one of the great early voyages of discovery and only the third circumnavigation. Undertaken in 1615 and lasting until 1617, this important expedition succeded in its primary objective which was to find an alternative route to the rich sources of wealth in the Pacific. The Dutch East India Company had a strangle-hold on the two known routes: via the Cape of Good Hope and through the Straits of Magellan. A rival group of aggressive Dutch traders, formed the "Compagnie Australe", and eqiuiped the expedition with discovered and rounded Cape Horn, named after the Dutch town of Hoorn where the sponsors were based. In addition, the expedition explored the Pacific coast of South America, pursued the search for Terra Australis, and proved that Tierra del Fuego was not an island. Principle among the Hoorn merchant benefactors was Isaac Le Maire, whose son, Jacob Le Maire, was charged as the director of the enterprise. Jacob named the Le Maire strait in honour of his father. "The ship Eendracht, while crossing the Pacific, discovered some of the Tuamotu Islands, the Hoorn Islands, the Schouten Islands, and visited New Guinea, the Moluc … [Click Below for Full Description]

[RALEIGH, Walter, Sir] / [BACON, Francis]
London: Bonham Norton and John Bill, 1618. Rare first edition, first issue, of the defense of James Is execution of Sir Walter Raleigh, written by Francis Bacon and with (according to Bacon) very material additions by the king himself. The work describes the circumstances surrounding Raleighs final voyage to America in 1618 with the purpose of locating a fabled gold mine, and includes the text of Raleighs commission. In the event, his expedition ended up seizing the island of St. Thomas and killing its Spanish governor, an ostensible act of war against Englands ally. Back in England, Raleigh, who had already been sentenced to death in 1603 on another conviction, was tried by a commission headed by Bacon and executed in October 1618. The English public was appalled: To sacrifice to a concealed enemy of England the life of the only man in the nation who had a high reputation for valor and military experience was regarded as meanness and indiscretion, and the intimate connections which the king was now entering into with Spain, being universally distasteful, rendered this proof of his complaisance still more invidious and unpopular (David Hume, History of England). The present volume is the governments hasty attempt to justify the execution. Bacon, as a member of the council that had sentenced Raleigh, appears to have been the main author. In a letter to a friend he mentioned the work and the kings input: We have put the Declaration touching Raleigh to press, with his Majestys additions which were very material and fit to proceed from his Majesty (cf. Pforzheimer, 819). The w … [Click Below for Full Description]

Woodcut arms on title-page, woodcut initial letters, woodcut printer's device on H7v. Waterstains; nevertheless in fine condition. Armorial bookplate of Miguel [Braga Leite] de Faria (see Avelar Duarte, Ex-libris portugueses heráldicos, 1150; the supralibros conforms to 1149). (8), 63, (1 blank) leaves. Leaf 14 wrongly numbered 12; leaf 59 wrongly numbered 58. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION. In eight discursos and a narración, Miranda traces the genealogy of the Zúñiga family, sketches Zúñiga's life and character, and describes the funeral rites held in Lisbon in his memory. After studying at Salamanca, Zúñiga entered military service in 1577. Following action in Italy, he was sent to Flanders and distinguished himself at the capture of Rosendael (1580). Appointed captain, Zúñiga became a trusted aide to the Duke of Parma. Miranda provides much information on Zúñiga's participation in the campaigns in Flanders and France from 1589-96, as Philip II sought to win the French throne through military and diplomatic maneuvers. In 1601 Zúñiga was sent to Lisbon, first as commander of Spanish forces there and later as Captain-General of Portugal, where his first assignment was to help plan the abortive Spanish invasion of Ireland. Preceding the Discursos are four sonnets in Spanish, including one by Juan de Torres Portugal and another by Manoel de Govea de Vasconcelos, a sonnet in Portuguese, and tw … [Click Below for Full Description]

A continuation was written up to the date of Meteren's death, and a French version came out at the Hague in 1618.
