        Les Reports de Edward Coke... [Part I] London, 1619.

      1619. Coke, Sir Edward [1552-1643]. [Part I]. Les Reports de Edward Coke L'Attorney Generell le Roigne, de Diuers Resolutions, & Iudgements... London: Printed for the Company of Stationers, 1619. [iii], 177, [1] fols. Folio (7-1/2" 11"). Later quarter brown morocco with gilt spine lettering over brown cloth boards, endpapers renewed. Two attractive early engraved bookplates with heraldic devices to front pastedown. Handsome woodcut title page, head-pieces, and initials. Interesting marginalia in fine early hand to several leaves. Signatures, small markings, and inscription to front free endpapers. Light marginal dampstaining throughout, minor worming to a few leaves not affecting text. Ex-library. Shelf label to front free endpaper and small ownership stamp to two leaves. A very desirable copy. * Fifth edition of the first part of Coke's Reports. Contains the cases of Burkhurt, Pelham, Porter, Woods, Capel, Archer, Bredon, Corbet, Shelley, Albany, Chudleigh, Mayowe, Chedington, and Digges. Coke was perhaps the greatest legal practitioner of his day. Written between 1572 and 1616, and intended originally for personal use, the Reports are not reports in the conventional sense but highly detailed anthologies of precedents organized according to the cases they consider. In each instance Coke assembled a large body of cases, outlined their arguments, and explained the rationale behind the verdicts, using them as a basis for a statement of general principles. They are, in effect, a series of treatises on the points of law adjudged. The Reports form the most extensive and detailed treatment of Common Law pleading that had yet appeared. A work of immense authority, it was often cited as The Reports, there being no need to mention the author's name. His accounts, especially of pleadings, were applauded for both their clarity and usefulness as stylistic models for students. And his selection of cases, cited frequently in subsequent years, has served as the starting point for numerous decisions. He also attracted some powerful enemies, however, principally James I, who was angered by some of his opinions concerning royal prerogative. Coke's refusal to retract them and apologize to the King cost him his seat on the Bench. Marvin,.

Titel 8 Bll., 266 S., 151; 594 S., 324 S., 59 Bll., 1 w.Bl.. Holzdeckeleinband d. Zt., Schweinsleder bezug mit reicher Blindprägung, 2 Schließen, die Schließenbänder fehlen. Diverse Wurmlächer. ADB XXXI 175 f.. Vgl. Graesse II, 308. - Erster Druck der ersten Ausgabe, in der evangelischen Fassung. Die hier vorliegende Fassung mit zahlreichen antikathol. Passagen wurde allerdings von Kaiser Ferdinand II unterdrückt. Nach dem Übertritt d. Verf. zum Katholizismus wurde eine zensierte Ausgabe mit neuer Adresse (Jena) möglich. Die einzelnen Tle. handeln von den Königen über das Land, von den Fürsten, von den geistl. Landes- u. Justizsachen sowie von den einzelnen Städten Schlesiens. Der Kupfertitel im uneren Teil mit einer Ansicht von Breslau. Leicht gebräunt, kaum fleckig, im unt. Drittel kl. Wurmgänge mit minimalem Buchstabenverlust. Der schöne und reich verzierte Einband hat als Mittelstück ein gepr. Emblem und hinten das sächsische Wappen. Schickfuß: Jakob (Bonaventura) S., bekannt als Schulmann und Historiker, war der älteste Sohn eines kaiserlichen Zolleinnehmers Bonaventura S. in Schwiebus. Geboren daselbst am 22. Januar 1574, widmete er sich seit 1593 in Frankfurt a. O. philosophischen und juristischen Studien und begleitete alsdann polnische Edelleute auf die Universitäten zu Basel, Straßburg und Jena. 1597 nach Frankfurt zurückgekehrt, bekleidete er die Stelle eines Notars an der Universität, hielt dabei juristische Vorlesungen und that sich durch häufige Disputationen, von denen mehrere gedruckt wurden, hervor. So ward er, als in Brieg der Rector Melchior Tilesius am 5. April 1608 gestorben war, auf Empfehlung der Universität zu dessen Nachfolger berufen und brachte diese, 1569 von Herzog Georg II. als Vorposten des deutschen Protestantismus gegen den Osten gegründete Schule zu hoher Blüthe. Die Zahl der nicht bloß aus deutschen Landen, sondern auch aus Ungarn, Siebenbürgen, Polen und Mähren dorthin zusammenströmenden Schüler stieg unter ihm zeitweise bis auf 500, welche in fünf Hauptclassen unterrichtet, durch häufige Uebungen in lateinischen und griechischen Reden und poetischen Versuchen, sowie Aufführungen antiker Dramen, eine große Gewandtheit im Gebrauch der classischen Sprache erlangten. Einer dieser Zöglinge, Joh. Heermann aus Raudten in Schlesien, ward schon bei seinem Abgange von der Schule, 1608, mit dem Dichterlorbeer geschmückt und hat später seinen Namen besonders als Verfasser geistlicher (deutscher) Lieder auf die Nachwelt gebracht. Trotz dieser Erfolge legte S. 1613 das Rectorat nieder, als sich die Theilung der herzoglichen Lande zwischen den beiden, nunmehr der Vormundschaft entwachsenen Söhnen des Herzogs Joachim Friedrich (aEUR 1602) vollzog, und trat, nachdem er am 22. October 1612 zum D. U. J. in Frankfurt promovirt worden, als Rath in die Dienste des älteren jener Brüder, des Herzogs Johann Christian von Brieg. Dabei verwandte er seine Mußestunden auf die Abfassung einer aEUR Schlesischen ChronicaaEURoe, welcher er die Annales gentis Silesiae des Curäus (Wittenberg 1571, übersetzt und fortgeführt durch Heinr. Rätel, 1585, 1587, 1601) zu Grunde legte und die er mit dem Jahre 1619 aEUR da sich dero Oesterreichisch-Wienerischen Linien Regierung gantz endetaEURoe, abschloß. Die Anordnung darin ist ähnlich, wie bei Curäus (s. A. D. B. IV, [176] 644), so daß das erste Buch von den Königen über das Land bis 1619, das zweite von den einzelnen Fürsten, das dritte von den geistlichen, Landes- und Justizsachen, das vierte von den einzelnen Städten Schlesiens handelt. An einigen Stellen (IV, 75 f., 161) gibt er auch Nachrichten über seine Person und seine Vorfahren. Im Druck erschien die Chronik erst 1625 (Jena, o. J., Fol.), denn der große Krieg, welcher bald auch Schlesien ergriff, nöthigte den Herzog Christian sein Land zu verlassen, so daß S. 1623 in den Dienst des jüngeren Bruders, des Herzogs Georg Rudolf zu Liegnitz, überging; doch schon 1624 berief ihn Kaiser Ferdinand II. als Kammerfiscal von Oberschlesien zu seinem Rath und verlieh ihm, unter dem Namen Schickfuß von Neudorf, den Adel. Nach Beckmann (s. u.) trat sodann S. zur katholischen Kirche über, woraus es sich erklärt, daß er 25 Blätter seiner Chronik, die mißliebige Bemerkungen über katholische Institutionen enthielten, durch neue ersetzen oder den früheren Ausgaben vorbinden ließ. So traten z. B. I, 113 an die Stelle von: (den Bernhardinern hat man zu Breßlau Klöster erbaut) aEUR darinnen sie faulenzetenaEURoe, die Worte: aEUR dass sie den Gottesdienst darinnen verüben sollenaEURoe. Als kaiserlicher Rath hatte er seinen Wohnsitz in Breslau, wo er am 15. September 1637 starb; vermählt war er seit 1612 mit Elisabeth, der Tochter des prof. juris Martin Beneckendorf in Frankfurt a. O..

        The government of the tongue

      At the Theater in Oxford, With engraved allegorical frontispiece, woodcut head-pieces and initials. Full green morocco, label and gilt lettering on spine, extremities rubbed. With ownership inscription of Mary Ollyffe on frontispiece. The rare first edition of Allestree's guide to ethical speech, a lesson in morality with a severe regard to the faults and follies of others, and therefore, an improvement upon our own disposition. "Hold your tongue when nothing good can come from the words of criticism and condemnation of them." It is full of moral advice and instruction about correct judgement. Among the many subjects he treats are: the manifold abuse of speech, lying, uncharitable truth, of flattery and boasting and obscene talk. He closes with ten specific "lessons" on how to proceed through one's life while being able to commit to the positive utilization of the general rules of morality as well as their specific (and numerous) exceptions.& Allestree (1619-1681), a noted tutor, was later professor of Divinity at Oxford and provost of Eton College. As an ardent royalist, he took up arms for the king, and performed all duties of a common soldier. He was frequently seen holding a musket in one hand and a book in the other. He is noted "as a man of extensive learning, of moderate views, generous and charitable, of a solid and masculine kindness, and of a temper hot, but completely under control" (Encyclopedia Britannica, I, p. 694).&

        Discorso delle Comete di Mario Guiducci fatto da lui nell'Accademia Fiorentina nel suo medesimo consolato

      Woodcut device of the Medicean stars on title & two woodcut diagrams in the text. 2 p.l., 54 pp., one blank leaf. Small 4to, late 19th-cent. green diced morocco, arms in gilt within a richly decorated boarder, spine richly gilt, a.e.g. Florence: P. Cecconcelli, 1619. First edition and a very fine copy. Although published under the name of his pupil and assistant Mario Guiducci (1585-1646), the present book is actually the work of Galileo (the autograph manuscript survives). It is a concealed reply to the attack of the Jesuit Orazio Grassi's De Tribus Cometis, published earlier in the same year, and marks the beginning of Galileo's long controversy with Scheiner and the other Jesuit astronomers over the comet of 1618. The dispute continued for several years and resulted in Galileo's scientific manifesto Il Saggiatore (1623) which contains his most important ideas on the philosophy of scientific investigation. In addition to a description of the comets of 1618, Galileo discusses the satellites of Jupiter, the uses of the telescope, fixed stars not visible to the naked eye, etc. ❧ Carli & Favaro 80.

London: Printed for the Company of Stationers, 1619. [iii], 177, [1] fols. Folio (7-1/2" 11"). Later quarter brown morocco with gilt spine lettering over brown cloth boards, endpapers renewed. Two attractive early engraved bookplates with heraldic devices to front pastedown. Handsome woodcut title page, head-pieces, and initials. Interesting marginalia in fine early hand to several leaves. Signatures, small markings, and inscription to front free endpapers. Light marginal dampstaining throughout, minor worming to a few leaves not affecting text. Ex-library. Shelf label to front free endpaper and small ownership stamp to two leaves. A very desirable copy. * Fifth edition of the first part of Coke's Reports. Contains the cases of Burkhurt, Pelham, Porter, Woods, Capel, Archer, Bredon, Corbet, Shelley, Albany, Chudleigh, Mayowe, Chedington, and Digges. Coke was perhaps the greatest legal practitioner of his day. Written between 1572 and 1616, and intended originally for personal use, the Reports are not reports in the conventional sense but highly detailed anthologies of precedents organized according to the cases they consider. In each instance Coke assembled a large body of cases, outlined their arguments, and explained the rationale behind the verdicts, using them as a basis for a statement of general principles. They are, in effect, a series of treatises on the points of law adjudged. The Reports form the most extensive and detailed treatment of Common Law pleading that had yet appeared. A work of immense authority, it was often cited as The Reports, there being no need to mention the author's name. His accounts, especially of pleadings, were applauded for both their clarity and usefulness as stylistic models for students. And his selection of cases, cited frequently in subsequent years, has served as the starting point for numerous decisions. He also attracted some powerful enemies, however, principally James I, who was angered by some of his opinions concerning royal prerogative. Coke's refusal to retract them and apologize to the King cost him his seat on the Bench. Marvin,

Four works in one vol. Very lightly browned as usual; excellent copies in contemporary yapped vellum, spine lettered in ink; early inscription in ink on upper margin of the Herculis Christiani luctae (bound first); 18th C notes on rear free end-paper; 19th C bookplate of ¿James Brown Thornton¿ on front paste-down. Fine sammelband of four scarce first editions of works by the Renaissance theologian, Lutheran reformer, and self-proclaimed founding Rosicrucian Johann Valentin Andreae (1586-1654), including his celebrated Reipublicae Christianopolitanae, a Protestant vision of the Christian Utopia. The volume includes a folding engraved plate, often missing, depicting two views of the perfect city: a bird¿s-eye view of its walls, courtyards, and central tower, together with an aerial blueprint of its symmetrical architectural layout. Like its famous predecessor, More¿s Utopia (1516), Andreae¿s Christianopolis describes the ideal Christian society from the perspective of a visiting narrator, in this case the shipwrecked pilgrim Cosmoxenus Christianus, who observes the city¿s inhabitants, social institutions and way of life. As Thompson has remarked, however, the work¿s ¿blueprint for establishing a small community of scholar-craftsmen¿¿in contrast to the stratified castes of Utopia¿marks it as ¿a Lutheran alternative to the Jesuit collages of the counter-reformation, and a Christocentric alternative to the Rosicrucian myth¿ with which Andreae was also associated. Many of the work¿s 100 chapters, e.g. The Library, The Pharmacy, The Natural Science Laboratory, Mathematical Instruments, Astrononomy etc., also testify to Andreae¿s education in the humanities and natural sciences: he read Erasmus and Lipsiu, studied mathematics under Maestlin, and corresponded with Kepler until the latter¿s death in 1630. Manuel also notes that, unlike Utopia or Campanella¿s City of the Sun (a near-contemporary of the present work), the progress of Andreae¿s narrator through his surroundings represents a private spiritual journey, one that perhaps prefigures Bunyan¿s Pilgrim¿s Progress (1678): ¿Christianopolis is the history of an adept in an ideal Lutheran community, and the alterations of his inner being, his exaltation through the sight of the meticulously ordered Christian city, is the heart of the work.¿ Bound first in the volume is Andreae¿s Herculis Christiani luctae, which includes veiled biographical material on his Tübingen friend and mentor Tobias Hess (1558-1614); Christianopolis is followed by Turris Babel (1619), an anonymously published satire of the Rosicrucian movement, and Civis Christianus, a didactic examination of religious hermeticism. *Reipublicae: Dünnhaupt 23 (¿Erster evangelisch orientierter utopischer Staatsroman im Geiste von Moore¿s Utopia und Campanella¿s Sonnenstaat¿), Faber du Faur I.128, Gardner 38; Herculis: Cimelia Rhodostaurotica 46, Gardner 30; Turris: Cimelia Rhodostaurotica 285, Gardner 39; Civis: Cimelia Rhodostaurotica 284, Gardner 42.

        “Di Giulio Cesare e Luco Spinoli 1619.”

      n.p., 1619. Early 17th-century account ledger of Giulio Cesare and Luco Spinola, two brothers of the Genoese patrician family, recording debts and credits over a period beginning in 1619 and ending in 1631. Information about individual debts is registered at the top of each page, with ample blank space underneath for successive transactions relating to the debt. Other pages are filled with tables recording transactions in a given period of time pertaining to different debtors and creditors. Although the book was evidently begun in 1619, some of the entries record transactions dating back to 1599. The entries are written in a single neat hand which only occasionally turns into a hasty scrawl. Six loose leaves inserted into the pages contain records of transactions from 1599 to 1630. The brothers were evidently responsible for the finances of their mother, Lamilla, whose name appears frequently, as well as their sisters. One of them, Luiggia, born Livia, was in a convent, while the other, Benedetta, had her dowry managed by her brother until her marriage to her cousin, Paris Salvago. Reflecting the Spinola family’s twin spheres of influence in Genoa and Naples, both places appear in the transactions, with somewhat more mentions of Naples—probably an indication of the focus of Giulio Cesare and Luco’s business interests, and a plausible explanation for why their accounting ledger should be bound in such a splendid Spanish-Neapolitan binding.. Folio manuscript, [25 x 35 cm], consisting of 119 numbered leaves and (70) blank leaves; (6) loose folded leaves. Contemporary black morocco wallet binding, most likely Neapolitan (or Spanish), elaborately and densely tooled, with original morocco reinforcements with decorative red stitching on lower edge (i.e., spine); some minor worming and abrasion. Vellum title shows minor soiling, and so do extremities of scattered leaves, but generally in an excellent state of preservation.

This second edition appears to be even scarcer than the first, we having been unable to trace any other copy having been sold at auction; furthermore, we could only locate a handful of copies in institutions worldwide. The Tratado is often found bound along with another work by Tolra, although they are separate publications, as evident by Palau’s treatment. The text begins explaining and giving a short historical background of arithmetic’s, and extends to include guides applied to household economics; it includes woodcuts diagrams in the text.

        Relation iournaliere du voyage du Levant

      Nancy: Iacob Garnich, 1619. An attractive copy of Beauvau’s 1605 expedition through Greece, Turkey, Cyprus, Palestine and Egypt, one of the most substantially illustrated French travelogues of the first half of the 17th century relating to the Near East. Of special note is Beauvau’s use of cartographic illustration suggestive of the Italian isolarios of the period: the 49 maps and views of Aegean islands, etc., engraved in the manner of Bertelli and Camocio, remind us that at this early date France did not as yet have a very well developed cartographic style, forcing publishers to look for models elsewhere—namely Italy, where the Italians had been publishing isolarios for more than a century. The plates, however, were engraved by a Frenchman, Jean Appier Hanzelet, of Lorraine, a very good engraver who is best known for his book on pyrotechnics with memorable illustrations in a kindred style.Beauvau describes many religious landmarks and holy sites (this edition includes floor plans of the more important churches in Jerusalem) as well as providing details on peoples of various faiths he encountered during his travels. Mentioned in the Relation are a number of legendary boulders and stones in Palestine which bear curious markings, allegedly the imprints of the bodies of three apostles on stones in the Garden of Gethsemane and of St. Jerome’s body in the desert (p. 148).Henri de Beauvau, a soldier and diplomat, fought the Turks in Hungary first in the service of Emperor Rudolph III, and then under the elector of Bavaria. He embarked upon this journey in 1605, regarding it as a diplomatic venture rather than a pilgrimage. The work first appeared without illustrations in an octavo format in 1608. The first illustrated edition was published in 1615, by Garnich. It is clear from the text that the illustrations were specifically engraved for the work and thus the Garnich editions are traditionally considered the most complete. The 1619 edition is not in OCLC; we have located two copies: Dresden and the British Library. OCLC records a Paris, 1619 edition with the imprint of Gilles Robinor at Niedersachs. The 1615 Nancy edition is held by Cornell, NYPL, Yale, Chicago, Oxford (detailed collation, to which our copy conforms).* Atabey 85; this edition not in Blackmer (cf. 106 for first illustrated edition); Brunet I.724 (s.v Beauveau); Zacharakis 136-153.. (4) ff. including engraved title, 181 (recte 180) pp. with 49 engraved plates in text. Bound in limp vellum, gilt stamp of Camille Aboussouan on upper cover, later ties. With Aboussouan’s two bookplates, on front pastedown and verso of flyleaf. Contemporary inscriptions on the title: Ex dono D. de Pigier, Ex Bibliotheca S. Victoria Paris; (cancelled) library stamp of Muséum D’Histoire Naturelle. Some faint waterstaining to upper corner of some leaves, scattered spotting throughout, but generally very good.

Fine sammelband of four scarce first editions of works by the Renaissance theologian, Lutheran reformer, and self-proclaimed founding Rosicrucian Johann Valentin Andreae (1586-1654), including his celebrated Reipublicae Christianopolitanae, a Protestant vision of the Christian Utopia. The volume includes a folding engraved plate, often missing, depicting two views of the perfect city: a bird's-eye view of its walls, courtyards, and central tower, together with an aerial blueprint of its symmetrical architectural layout.Like its famous predecessor, More's Utopia (1516), Andreae's Christianopolis describes the ideal Christian society from the perspective of a visiting narrator, in this case the shipwrecked pilgrim Cosmoxenus Christianus, who observes the city's inhabitants, social institutions and way of life. As Thompson has remarked, however, the work's "blueprint for establishing a small community of scholar-craftsmen"-in contrast to the stratified castes of Utopia-marks it as "a Lutheran alternative to the Jesuit collages of the counter-reformation, and a Christocentric alternative to the Rosicrucian myth" with which Andreae was also associated. Many of the work's 100 chapters, e.g. The Library, The Pharmacy, The Natural Science Laboratory, Mathematical Instruments, Astrononomy etc., also testify to Andreae's education in the humanities and natural sciences: he read Erasmus and Lipsiu, studied mathematics under Maestlin, and corresponded with Kepler until the latter's death in 1630.Manuel also notes that, unlike Utopia or Campanella's City of the Sun (a near-contemporary of the present work), the progress of Andreae's narrator through his surroundings represents a private spiritual journey, one that perhaps prefigures Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress (1678): "Christianopolis is the history of an adept in an ideal Lutheran community, and the alterations of his inner being, his exaltation through the sight of the meticulously ordered Christian city, is the heart of the work." Bound first in the volume is Andreae's Herculis Christiani luctae, which includes veiled biographical material on his Tübingen friend and mentor Tobias Hess (1558-1614); Christianopolis is followed by Turris Babel (1619), an anonymously published satire of the Rosicrucian movement, and Civis Christianus, a didactic examination of religious hermeticism.*Reipublicae: Dünnhaupt 23 ('Erster evangelisch orientierter utopischer Staatsroman im Geiste von Moore's Utopia und Campanella's Sonnenstaat'), Faber du Faur I.128, Gardner 38; Herculis: Cimelia Rhodostaurotica 46, Gardner 30; Turris: Cimelia Rhodostaurotica 285, Gardner 39; Civis: Cimelia Rhodostaurotica 284, Gardner 42.

        Le jeu des Eschets

      343 pages. Duodecimo (5 ½? x 3 ¼?). Bound in vellum with black lettering to spine. Originally written in 1619 in Italian. [Biblioteca van Der Niemeijeriana: 402]Gioachino Greco, also known as Il Calabrese, was born around 1600 in Celico, which near Cosenza in Calabria. Calabria had already produced such players as Leonardo di Bono and Michele di Mauro. From his writing it's apparent the he wasn't educated and likely came from a lower class family. Already in 1619, Greco started keeping a notebook of tactics and particularly clever games and he took up the custom of giving copies of his manuscripts to his wealthy patrons. In Rome Monsignor Corsino della casa Minutoli Tegrini, Cardinal Savelli and Monsignor Francisco Buoncompagni all received copies (of which there are extant copies, dated 1620 in the Corsiniana library in Rome, under the title, Trattato del nobilissimo gioco de scacchi). Despite his popularity in Rome, in 1621 Greco took off to test himself against the rest of Europe leaving this paper trail as he went. In 1621 he left a fine copy of his manuscripts with Duke Enrico of Lorraine in Nancy. He traveled to Paris where he played Arnauld (Isaac) de Corbeville, Enrico di Savoia (the Marquis of St. Sorlin and the Duke of Nemours and Geneva) and others. He had apparently been quite successful because in traveling from Paris to England he was waylaid by robbers who divested him of 5,000 scudi, a princely sum. Finally making it to London, he beat all the best players. Sir Francis Godolphin and Nicholas Mountstephen were given copies of his manuscripts. While in London, Greco developed an idea to record entire games, rather than positions, for study and inclusion in his manuscripts. He returned to Paris in 1624 where he rewrote his manuscript collection to reflect his new ideas. He then went to Spain and played at the court of Philip IV. There he beat his mentor and the strongest player of the time (other than himself), don Mariano Morano. He finally returned to Italy where he was enticed to traveling to the New Indies, the Americas, by a Spanish nobleman. He seemingly contracted some disease there and died around 1630 (possibly 1634) at the young age of 30 (34). He generously left all the money he earned at chess to the Jesuits. Gioachino Greco stood head and shoulders above his contemporaries, a feat seldom duplicated. David Hooper, in The Oxford Companion to Chess, states that Greco probably made up the games in his manuscripts. The question of whether he actually played the games or invented them is rather moot since if he invented them, he was perfectly capable of playing them.Condition:Old owner's inscription laid in to both front and back paste downs, some slight foxing, still has the original ribbon book mark. Other wise a good copy.

        Asia recens summa cura delineata

      Nel 1619 Jodocus Hondius jr. incide una prima versione della carta dell?Asia con le figure. Dopo solo 4 anni decide di realizzare le carte dei continenti, commissionando il lavoro a Pieter van den Keere; questa carta dell?Asia che proponiamo appartiene a questo set, datato 1623. La carta è incisa in maniera speculare, per cui le figure e le piante delle città risultano rovesciate rispetto alla precedente versione. In alto si trovano le piante di Famagosta, Rodi, Damasco, Gerusalemme, Aden e Ormus; ai lati i costumi tipici di alcuni popoli asiatici. Delle lastra esistono cinque stati; il nostro esemplare è del quinto stato finale, con le figure delle città in basso rimosse, la data nel cartiglio cancellata e senza il testo al verso. Probabile che sia inserita nella rarissima cosmografia di Pierre D?Avity edita a Lione nel 1659, dal titolo Les Estats Empires, Royaumes et Principautez du Monde. Incisione in rame, con margini, in perfetto stato di conservazione. Molto rara. Bibliografia: Schilder, Monumenta Cartographica Neerlandica, vol. VI, pp. 150/55, 23.5. Dimensioni 555x410. In 1619 Jodocus Hondius jr. engraved the first version of the map of Asia with figures. After four years he decided to realize the maps of the coninents, commissionino the job to Pieter van den Keere; this representation of Asia belongs to this set, dated 1623. The map is engraved mirroring the first version, for city plans are figures are upside down compared to the other example. On the upper part there are the city plans of Famagosta, Rodi, Damasco, Jerusalem, Aden and Ormus; on the sides, there are folk costumes of the Asiatic populations. This example is in the fifth final state, for he figures of the cities and the date in the cartouche have been cancelled and without the text on verso. Maybe this engraving was included in the very rare collection of Pierre D?Avity, printed in Lyon in 1659, with the title of Les Estats Empires, Royaumes et Principautez du Monde. Copper engraving, with margins, in excellent condition. Very rare. Amsterdam Amsterdam Schilder, Monumenta Cartographica Neerlandica, vol. VI, pp. 150/55, 23.5. Dimensioni 555x410

      Carta geografica dellla Sicilia settentrionale, con la Calabria e le Isole Eolie tratta dalla prima edizione del celebre "Sicilia Antiqua cum minoribus insulis, ei adjacentibus. Item Sardinia et Corsica" edito a Leida, Elzevier, 1619. IN basso le carte dell'isola di Malta e dell'isola di Mljet in Dalmazia. Il geografo ed umanista polacco Philipp Clüver, detto anche Cluverius o Cluverio (Danzica 1580-Leida 1623) effettua il viaggio in Sicilia nel 1618 pervenendo dalla Calabria. Da Messina, dove giunge alla fine di marzo, si reca a Palermo e compie, in circa due mesi, il giro dell?isola ?trilatera?. In essa ha osservato, e a volte individuato, i siti delle antiche città menzionate nelle opere degli autori classici. Questo gli consentirà di ricostruire la topografia antica della regione e nel 1619 di pubblicare le sue ricerche in Sicilia antiqua dove inserisce una mappa con i toponimi delle città greche e romane. Il volume e la mappa, nei secoli successivi, diverranno un?indispensabile guida per i viaggiatori che visitano l?isola con l?intento di studiare i reperti dell?antichità classica. Il testo del Cluverio fu riedito più volte nel Seicento e nel secolo XVIII e presenta pure la descrizione delle isole di Malta, Sardegna e Corsica con le relative mappe.

        La dioptrique oculaire, ou la théorique, la positive, et la mechanique de l'oculaire dioptrique en toutes ses espèces.Paris: Thomas Jolly and Simon Benard, 1671 [1670]. First edition.

      A very fresh and clean copy of "the most exhaustive treatise on lens making in the seventeenth century. It is a six-hundred folio page long, comprehensive, cogently-argued treatise on telescope making. It contains an impressive amount of theoretical and practical, first-hand information on all of its facets - from explanations of the telescope's working principles, to descriptions of lens grinding and polishing, to rules for the right distances between lenses, to methods to find the right apertures, to descriptions of the shapes and articulations of the wooden parts and bolts and screws needed to properly point a telescope to the skies, to the construction of tubes, and so on and so forth. <br/><br/> "The first, shorter part of the book is devoted to the theory of vision, including the optical properties of the main parts of the eye. It follows Kepler's account but complements it with views taken from the Jesuit Christopher Scheiner's <i>Oculus</i> (1619) and <i>Rosa ursine</i> (1632). The second part, which dedicates more than one hundred pages to the theory of the telescope, pervasively shows the deep influence of Kepler's <i>Dioptrice</i>.<br/><br/> "The basic notions and axioms come from Kepler, including the approximate refraction law for angles of incidence no greater than 30º ... (pp. 8 & 25). To Kepler's results about the focus of convex lenses and meniscus, d'Orleans adds a few new results, but not a full treatment of the problem. He takes into consideration only the focus of radiation parallel to the axis of the lens. For it he finds the focal distance for a planoconvex lens, a biconvex symmetrical lens, a biconvex meniscus with two general radius of convexity, and a concavo-convex meniscus whose surfaces have two general radii. He also improves Kepler's results about the focus of two contiguous equal convex lenses. D'Orleans also takes up in full Kepler's understanding of magnification, his procedure to measure it, and his explanations for the inversion of the image (pp. 11-13 & 158). More importantly, d'Orleans closely follows Kepler's analysis of the ways in which a convex or a concave lens combine with the eye separately (pp. 67- 71 & 73-78). Next, he presents the theory of the Dutch telescope as it appears in the <i>Dioptrice</i> (pp. 80-89). The full treatment of astronomical or Keplerian telescopes is one important addition to Kepler's <i>Dioptrice</i> we find in d'Orleans' treatise (pp. 91-108). Astronomical telescopes are called telescopes 'of the second kind (oculaire dioptrique de deuxième espèce)', while the Dutch or Galilean telescopes belong to the 'first kind' (première espèce). D'Orleans' analysis of the combination of two convex lenses closely follows Kepler's. Recognising these telescopes to be the most important ones for the purposes of astronomical observation, d'Orleans carefully explains many practical problems posed by their actual construction. In particular he insists in the one physical feature that outwardly distinguishes them from Dutch telescopes, i.e. that objective lenses in Keplerian telescopes had smaller diameters than ocular lenses, which made Keplerian telescopes to be thicker at the end to which the eye was applied and thinner at the end pointed to the sky (pp. 178 & 190). The astronomical telescope occupies pride of place in the carefully designed frontispiece of d'Orleans' treatise. Other second-kind telescopes may include three, four or even five convex lenses (pp. 109-118). Their properties are explained with the same techniques Kepler (and d'Orleans) used to explain the combination of two convex lenses (exemplified above by the demonstration of Dioptrice's proposition 107). The second important theoretical addition to Kepler's <i>Dioptrice</i> we find in d'Orleans' treatise concerns the theory of microscopes with one, two and three convex lenses (pp. 125-140), a topic Kepler ignored. The last and longer division of d'Orleans' <i>Dioptrique oculaire</i> (almost 300 pages) concerns the 'positive and mechanical' parts of telescope making, i.e. the actual construction of tubes and its parts, and techniques for lens grinding and polishing. In the opening pages of his treatise d'Orleans claims himself to be Kepler's 'follower', and calls Kepler the main author of the 'modern theory' (doctrine moderne) of dioptrics." (Albert et al, The Origins of the Telescope, pp. 289-291).. Folio (355 x 230 mm), pp [xlviii] 419 [1:blank] [30:index], including engraved frontispiece plus 57 engraved plates, contemporary full French calf with reaised bands and richly gilt spine.

        Harmonices Mundi Libri V

      Five engraved plates & numerous woodcut diagrams & illus. in the text. 4 p.l., 66 (i.e. 64), 255 pp. Folio, cont. vellum over boards (binding a little warped, bottom corner of lower cover a little worn, occasional browning but rather less than usual), ties gone. Linz: J. Planck for G. Tampach, 1619. First edition, first issue, and a fine copy of this great book. Copies of the first issue are distinctly rare. This epochal work contains Kepler&#39;s discovery of the third law of planetary motion. Kepler regarded this work as his crowning achievement in elucidating the harmonic regularities of the universe. It was Kepler&#39;s three laws which formed the basis of Newton&#39;s principle of universal gravitation. "In the Mysterium cosmographicum the young Kepler had been satisfied with the rather approximate planetary spacings predicted by his nested polyhedrons and spheres; now [in 1619], imbued with a new respect for data, he could no longer dismiss its 5 percent error. In the astronomical book V of the Harmonice mundi, he came to grips with this central problem: By what secondary principles did God adjust the original archetypal model based on the regular solids?... "In the course of this investigation, Kepler hit upon the relation now called his third or harmonic law: The ratio that exists between the periodic times of any two planets is precisely the ratio of the 3/2 power of the mean distances...the law gave him great pleasure, for it so neatly linked the planetary distances with their velocities or periods, thus fortifying the a priori premises of the Mysterium and the Harmonice."-D.S.B., VII, pp. 301-02.
