AELIANUS, Claudius
I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Claudius Aelianus, or more commonly known as Aelian, was a 2nd-century AD Roman rhetorician and philosopher who was well-versed in both Greek and Latin linguistics. Aelian had only two well-known works - 'On Animalia' and 'Variae Historia.' The latter is a collection of ancient anecdotes and sketches that describe natural wonders and mythological customs. He describes death and burial customs, Greek art, dress and costumes, food and drink, famous athletes, pagan worship, fly fishing, and more! This rare 1618 printing is printed in parallel Greek and Latin. [Attributes: First Edition]

HONDIUS, HENRICUS
"America Noviter Delineata This important map was first published in 1618 by Jodocus Hondius. Cartographically, this map influenced a generation of cartographers and was the basis of understanding the Americas for the first half of the 17th century. When first issued the map was surrounded by four panels, figures on the sides and Views on the top and bottom. The plate was trimmed, removing the panels by Henricus Hondius c.1630. The map had a long life appearing in atlases up to 1665, This map is noted for its elegant engraving and pleasing layout, with fleets of ships and sea monsters, and two inset maps one showing the Arctic Circle and the other showing Greenland. The North Pole depicts Frobisher's theory of the Northwest Passage and the South Pole shows the long-held notion of the mythical southern continent. North America retains the peninsular California and the East Coast is beginning to take shape, although it still lacks detail in the mid-Atlantic region. In the Southwest the famous seven cities of Cibola appear on the banks of a large lake. In South America, there is a large inland sea and two engraved scenes, one of which details a cannibalistic feast. Two stylized insets of the two polar regions are enclosed in strapwork cartouches. Size: 37,5 x 49,8 cm (plus margins). The copperplate that produced this map was originally prepared by Jodocus Hondius Jr. in 1618.?This issue, known in three examples, has decorative borders on all four sides.?There is a 2nd state in c1629-30 with no decorative borders.? A 3rd state was produced by Henricus Hondius in 1631.?The map d … [Click Below for Full Description]

Schouten, Willem
Important narrative of Le Maire and Schouten's expedition westward across the Pacific to the Indies, during which they discovered a new navigable passage south of Cape Horn. First French edition, one of two issues of the same year "differing only in the preliminary matter and in some of the plates" (Sabin), published the same year as the original Dutch edition. The illustration is composed of nine engraved folding maps and plates including a world map (Shirley 297), New Guinea, the Pacific, and a map of the Strait of Magellan. 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 search for the elusive Terra Australis. It was of great importance for the future history of discovery in that it proved the existence of a passage from the southern Atlantic into the Pacific, south of the Straits of Magellan round Cape Horn, and therefore finally demonstrated that the supposed Southern Continent, contrary to the maps of Ortelius and Mercator, did not extend to the Straits of Magellan. "This is the account of Schouten's voyage around the world, during which Cape Horn, named after Schouten's native town was discovered. The leading citizens of Hoorn had helped finance the expedition by joining together under Isaac Le Maire to found the Campagnie Australe. The newly-discovered passage to the Pacific Ocean was named the Strait of Le Maire. Although published under Schouten's name, it is not certain that he was the true author of this journal, which was e … [Click Below for Full Description]

GRAFFENRIED (Johan Rudolff von)
(1618) VD 17 23:672916C. Poggendorff I, 936. Schärlig, Le livre d'arithmétique de Johan Rudolff von Graffenried. Édition originale très rare, à la bonne date de 1618 (le biographe de Graffenried, Egger, l'affirmait déjà en 1896 : "wohl nur selten mehr zu finden"). Graffenried, né en 1584 à Berthoud (Burgsdorf), à une vingtaine de km au nord-est de Berne, fit carrière au service de l'État, d'abord en tant que notaire, puis comme secrétaire baillival à Interlaken, comme membre du Conseil des Deux-Cents dès 1624 et comme bailli à Unterseen dès 1634. Il a étudié, en autodidacte, l'arithmétique et l'astronomie ; son Arithmeticae Logisticae, "injustement méconnu" (Schärlig), est plus complet et plus riche - du fait notamment de ses innombrables exemples - que plusieurs des sources qu'il cite. J. H. Graf, dans l'étude qu'il a consacrée à Graffenried, affirme qu'il s'agit de l'œuvre maîtresse en matière de mathématiques, en Allemagne du sud, du début du 17e siècle. On pourrait traduire le titre ainsi : Quatre livres d'arithmétique logistique populaire. Dans lesquels l'algorithme en nombres entiers et en fractions, y compris la proportion, à côté de la pratique welsche, et toutes les autres règles utiles jusqu'à l'algèbre sont comprises, et expliquées de manière très compréhensible, avec de belles questions et exemples, le plus simplement. De telle sorte que chacun, disposant d'un peu de compréhension, puisse y apprendre cet art lui-même.

Willem Janszoon BLAEU (Uitgeest 1571- Amsterdam 1638)
Una delle più famose e ricercate carte dell'America del diciassettesimo secolo. La famosa opera di Blaeu viene considerata una delle vette della produzione cartografica olandese. Quando venne data alle stampe la prima volta come stampa sciolta, nel 1618, la carta riassumeva tutte le più aggiornate informazioni cartografiche dell'epoca e fu considerata un importante punto di riferimento per la produzione di altre carte fino alla metà del secolo. L'editore, Willem Janszoon, adottò il nome di Blaeu per evitare confusione con Jan Janszoon e modificò il suo nome nel terzo stato della carta, a partire dal 1621. I pannelli decorativi ai lati includono vivide rappresentazioni dei nativi americani con i loro costumi provenienti da Virginia, Florida, California (Nove Albions) e altre aree. I pannelli lungo il margine superiore riportano vedute di nove città, tra cui Rio de Janeiro, Mexico City e Havana. La California è ancora raffigurata come una penisola e solo uno dei Grandi Laghi è riportato. Le colonie in via di sviluppo sono raffigurate lungo i confini costieri orientali, i Francesi in Canada e gli Inglesi in Virginia (l'accampamento di Jamestown). La carta riporta anche le scoperte di ulteriori esplorazioni da arte degli Spagnoli lungo la California. Bibliografia: Burden 189; Tooley, Mapping of America, pl. 169. Dimensioni 550x410. One of the best known and sought after seventeenth century maps of America. Blaeu's famous carte a figure map of America is regarded as a high point in Dutch cartography.

SORA Y AGUERRI, Gabriel
146 leaves, [4] leaves. Small 4to, cont. vellum, recased with new endpapers. [From the colophon leaf]: Zaragoza: Ex Typographia Ioannis de Larumbe, 1618.First edition, and extremely rare, of the second earliest printed catalogue of a private Spanish library, preceded only by the inventory catalogue of the library of Antonio Agustín in 1586. Referring to Sora's library: "the size and range of this collection is remarkable."-Pollard & Ehrman, p. 202 & Table XXV."This classified owner's catalogue deserves more study than it has received. The arrangement is alphabetical within the categories…The catalogue gives a very satisfactory account of Cardinal Sora's books."-Taylor, Book Catalogues, p. 29-(& see his description of each part of the library's contents).Sora (1558-1622), acted as censor of books forbidden by the Inquisition for more than 25 years. Born in Zaragoza into an illustrious and well-connected family, he studied at the Universities of Zaragoza, Alcalá, and Lérida and became a canon at the cathedral of Zaragoza. He was a consultant - "Inquisidor ordinario" - of the Inquisition of Aragon for over 36 years. During this period he also acted as lawyer to defendants in cases brought by the Inquisition. He was Judge of the Synod of the Archbishopric of Zaragoza and Vicario General, Rector of the University, and in 1618 he was appointed Bishop of Albarracín.The catalogue seems to have been prepared to support a petition to the King for a pension. It is interesting as an early example of a library classification system: theology, … [Click Below for Full Description]

LOUET (Georges), BRODEAU (Julien)
Estienne Gamonet, 1618. plein veau fauve, tit. doré sur dos à 5 nerfs, orné de fers, dentelles et doubles filets encadrant doré, roulettes sur les nerfs et les coupes, tr. mouchetée, (ors lég. passés, coiffes et coins émoussés, mouillures marginales sans atteinte au texte) Ouvrage d'excellente réputation loué en ces termes par Henrys "Comme ledit le Sieur Brodeau a joint l'usage à l'étude, et l'application du barreau à la lecture des bons livres, on ne peut mieux employer le temps qu'à lire ce qu'il nous a laissé des remarques par lui faites ; si le recueil de M. Louet est de soi recommandable, il ne l'est pas moins par le commentaire" (recueil d'arrêts, livre 1, chapitre 3, P. 36). Il s'agit effectivement d'un des meilleurs recueils de jurisprudence du parlement de Paris du XVIIème siècle cité encore aujourd'hui par les histoires du droit au titre des principales sources jurisprudentielles (v. par ex. A-M. Patault, Introduction historique au droit des biens, P.U.F. 1989). Édition genevoise rarissime (elle manque à Cujas et à la BNF) et dont Dupin ne fait pas cas (réf. 1316).

BORROMEO Federico - OSORIO Pedro de Toledo - Ducato di Milano.
apud Impressores Archiepisc.,, Milano. Sottoscritta nel 1615 dal Borromeo e dal nuovo governatore Pedro de Toledo Osorio, fu ratificata poi da Paolo V e da Filippo III nel 1617 e pubblicata a Milano nel 1618. Definita un capolavoro di sottigliezza giuridica; nei suoi quindici articoli è continuo il tentativo di comporre, con concessioni teoriche intrecciate a pratiche ritrattazioni, le due posizioni opposte alle quali le parti non avevano rinunciato. Essa ammetteva la competenza del foro ecclesiastico in tutte le cause miste - con vittoria quindi della tesi ecclesiastica - ma questa competenza non veniva configurata come esclusiva bensì in concorrenza con quella statale, con la determinazione di una complicata casistica pratica che lascerà adito a numerosi conflitti. Marca xilografata al frontespizio con S. Ambrogio tra i martiri Gervasio e Protasio. Esemplare perfetto a pieni margini in barbe. Importante e rarissimo. Brossura coeva cartonata muta, pp. 29, 3b., in 8° (17,5 x 22,5 cm.) [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Marcus Vitruvius Pollio ( c. 80–70 BC – after c. 15 BC), commonly known as Vitruvius, was a Roman author, architect, civil engineer and military engineer during the 1st century BC, known for his multi-volume work entitled De architectura. His discussion of perfect proportion in architecture and the human body led to the famous Renaissance drawing by Leonardo da Vinci of Vitruvian Man. By his own description Vitruvius served as an artilleryman, the third class of arms in the military offices. He probably served as a senior officer of artillery in charge of doctores ballistarum (artillery experts) and libratores who actually operated the machines. De architectura, known today as The Ten Books on Architecture, a treatise written in Latin on architecture, dedicated to the emperor Augustus. In the preface of Book I, Vitruvius dedicates his writings so as to give personal knowledge of the quality of buildings to the emperor. Likely Vitruvius is referring to Marcus Agrippa's campaign of public repairs and … [Click Below for Full Description]

Schouten, Willem
Important narrative of Le Maire and Schouten's expedition westward across the Pacific to the Indies, during which they discovered a new navigable passage south of Cape Horn. First French edition, one of two issues of the same year "differing only in the preliminary matter and in some of the plates" (Sabin), published the same year as the original Dutch edition. The illustration is composed of nine engraved folding maps and plates including a world map (Shirley 297), New Guinea, the Pacific, and a map of the Strait of Magellan. 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 search for the elusive Terra Australis. It was of great importance for the future history of discovery in that it proved the existence of a passage from the southern Atlantic into the Pacific, south of the Straits of Magellan round Cape Horn, and therefore finally demonstrated that the supposed Southern Continent, contrary to the maps of Ortelius and Mercator, did not extend to the Straits of Magellan. "This is the account of Schouten's voyage around the world, during which Cape Horn, named after Schouten's native town was discovered. The leading citizens of Hoorn had helped finance the expedition by joining together under Isaac Le Maire to found the Campagnie Australe. The newly-discovered passage to the Pacific Ocean was named the Strait of Le Maire. Although published under Schouten's name, it is not certain that he was the true author of this journal, which was e … [Click Below for Full Description]

POESIE) STATIUS (P.P.).
Parisiis, sumptibus Thomae Blaise, 1618. 3 tomes en 2 volumes in-4. 4ff. 741pp. + 2ff. 588pp. 6ff. + 112pp. Plein veau brun de l'époque, reliure restaurée. Edition très rare des oeuvres du célèbre poète latin Statius, auquel on doit "une poésie d'images et de rythme plutôt que d'idées; de l'improvisation italienne étincelante; un jeu de la mémoire dans une tête vive" (Nisard). Cette édition est particulièrement intéressante en raison de la personnalité de l’éditeur, Emeric Cruce. Né vers 1590 à Paris, Cruce, dont on sait peu de choses, est en effet l'auteur du plus rare et du plus important des traités d'économie politique publiés au XVIIs. ("Le Nouveau Cynée, ou Discours des occasions et moyens d'establir une paix générale et la liberté du commerce pour tout le monde." Paris, Villery, 1623). Larousse dit à son propos: "Comme écrivain, il a de Montaigne la phrase libre et familière, avec la vigueur de l'expression. En tant que philosophe, il doit partager avec Grotius la gloire d'avoir affranchi la science en fondant le droit sur la loi naturelle. Enfin, si nous le considérons comme politique, il devance de plusieurs siècles ses contemporains." (Larousse). L'apport de Cruce à cette édition de Stace, outre des savantes recherches bibliographiques, est constitué par la troisième partie (112pp) qui a un titre et pagination séparés. On y trouve ses commentaires, ainsi qu'un poème à caractère historique et politique intitulé: "Somnium Philoceltae seu Sponsor Cassandrae Turcicae" (pp.100-104). Rousseurs. Bon exemplaire.

KEPLER, Johannes.
Johann Planck; Georg Tampach 1618; 1622; 1621, Linz; Frankfurt. First edition, an immaculate copy, the finest we have seen, of the third of Kepler?s great trilogy of astronomical treatises, following Astronomia nova (1609) and Harmonice mundi (1619), in which he introduced his three laws of planetary motion. The Epitome ?ranks next to Ptolemy?s Almagest and Copernicus? De revolutionibus ? [It] is the first systematic complete presentation of astronomy to introduce the ideas of modern celestial mechanics founded by Kepler ? The title gives no inkling that Kepler had erected an entirely new structure on the foundation of the Copernican theory, that he had rescued the Copernican conception, at the time disputed and little believed, and helped it to break through by introducing his planet laws and by treating the phenomena of the motions physically? (Caspar, p. 297). ?This work [the Epitome] would prove to be the most important theoretical resource for the Copernicans in the 17th century. Galileo and Descartes were probably influenced by it? (Britannica). Kepler ?hypothesizes that force is needed to sustain motion and that hence some force must be acting on the planets. This force, he speculates, originates from the sun, can act over a vacuum, and may be magnetic. In contrast to many scientists of the time, Kepler believes much of space to be a vacuum? (Parkinson). ?One important detail is Kepler?s extension of his first two planetary laws to all the other planets [they originally applied only to Mars] as well as to the moon and the four satellites of Jupiter?

CODRONCHI, [Giovanni] Battista.
Mediolani [Milan]: Apud Jo. Bapt. Bidellium, 1618. Second edition. Codronchi is the author of the first important work on forensic medicine (G&M 1718) for which the present book on poisons and poisoners, originally published two years before it in 1595, had prepared the way. The treatise on forensic medicine forms part of a larger work, De vitiis vocis (G&M 3244), which is the first monograph on diseases of the larynx. This treatise too is foreshadowed in the present book, which contains a whole chapter on the voice (pp. 86-91). An extensive account of the present work is given by Thorndike who deals with its rôle in the history of witchcraft. Codronchi (1547-1628) was a physician from Imola, whose works according to Hirsch all show deep knowledge and originality. Nemec, Highlights in medico-legal relations, 190, including the present book in the note.

Frontespizio in cornice calcografica: retto da due angeli in alto, al di sopra del titolo, lo stemma del cardinale Aldobrandini dedicatario dell'opera; in basso lo stemma dell'autore della traduzione italiana dell'opera di Lipsius: il ferrarese Ercole Cati. Sulle due fasce laterali le immagini delle quattro virtù cardinali a cui si aggiungono qui altre due figure. Sulla sinistra, dall'alto in basso, portano i loro attributi tradizionali. La Giustizia, con bilancia e spada. La Prudenza, con lo specchio e il serpente (ma qui, stranamente, fissa il serpente invece dello specchio). La Fortezza con una colonna spezzata. Sulla destra. La Pace, in alto, tiene un ramoscello d'olivo e una fiaccola capovolta. La Temperanza versa del liquido da un recipiente a un altro. Un'ultima figura con corona d'alloro sul capo, in atto di leggere un libro mentre ne tiene un altro sotto il braccio: la Sapienza. Lo schema delle virtù usate come cornice, molto comune nelle marche tipografiche, è quindi ripreso sull'intero frontespizio. Ma la riproposizione di quella che può sembrare una formula ormai vuota ha qui un significato. Le virtù cardinali, con la Pace e la Sapienza, sono infatti quelle che si richiedono a chi si trovi al governo dello stato, al politico di cui si occupa l'opera di Lipsio.
