With some small tears in a few plates, but otherwise in good condition, with occasional minor browning along the folds of some plates; 1 view in ad 2 backed with blank paper. Well illustrated accounts of Africa, America and Constantinople.

      impensis ipsius Auctoris, Bologna 1620 - HANDSOME COPY OF THE PREMIER EARLY ITALIAN ATLAS Folio. pp (x) 24, 61 engraved maps (59 double page, 2 single) Italic letter, text within printed double-rule borders, engraved architectural t.p. by Oliviero Gatti, depicting allegorical figures of the sciences with instruments and globe within typographical border, early case no. at head, full page medallion portrait of the author dated 1632. Light water stain to earlier maps around centrefold, else a fine, large and thick paper copy, the maps in admirable, very clear impressions. In contemporary French calf, triple panels with ornamental cornerpieces to corners, all gilt, spine in eight compartments gilt (small repair at tail), edges speckled red, early paper labels 'F' and 'Italie' on upper cover. A handsome, very well margined copy of the second edition of the premier early Italian atlas, which dominated Italian cartography for at least the next half century. Most of the main C17 cartographers, including the Dutch compiler-editors, followed, copied, or incorporated Magni's regional maps, even Ortelius (with whom Magini corresponded) as well as Brahe and Kepler's and Blaeu used some of them. Magini (1555-1617) Paduan astronomer, astrologer, cartographer and mathematician studied at Bologna and famously was appointed to the chair of Mathematics there in preference to Galileo. His chef d'oeuvre however was the present atlas, designed to include a detailed map of every region of Italy with exact nomenclature and historical notes. Began in 1594 it soon proved ruinously expensive and Magini assumed the posts of astrologer to Vincenzo Gonzaga, Duke of Mantua, and tutor to his sons to pay for it. The Duke Ferdinando, to whom the atlas is dedicated, provided assistance for the project and allowed for maps of the various Italian states to be brought to Mantua, the governing authorities of Messina and Genoa also financially helped. Magini was not an engraver and had considerable problems from the mid-1590s onwards in keeping the service of those, such as the Dutch Arnold brothers, who were. Eventually he engaged the Englishman Benjamin Wright who completed the series in between his habitual bouts of drunkeness. The process took so long that Magini did not live to see its completion and the atlas was eventually published by his son Fabio, after a good deal of further revision. The result, according to Almagia (cit. inf.) eliminated numerous earlier errors in longitude and latitude, accurately indicated political boundaries and physical features and added numerous topographical names.

Besonders hervorgehoben sei dabei Breitingers ?Christlicher Sabbath?; diese Ausgabe findet sich so nicht in den dem KVK angeschlossenen Schweizer Bibliotheken (wohl aber in der British Library) und der Titel gar nicht im VD17. ?? Johann Jakob Breitinger (Zürich 1575?1645 ibid.), Pfarrer und Politiker. Pfarrer in Zumikon 1597, Albisrieden 1601, Professor der Logik am Collegium humanitatis in Zürich, erster Pfarrer am Grossmünster (Antistes) Oktober 1613. ?1619 regte er zum erstenmal die Feier eines Fast- und Betttages in Zürich an. Seine hohe Meinung vom Rechte der Kirche neben dem Staat offenbarte sich in seiner politischen Betätigung, welche so rege war, dass man von einer zeitweiligen Nebenregierung Breitingers sprechen konnte.? (HBLS). Abgesehen von seinem starken politischen Engagement für die Sache der Reformierten, war Breitinger in religiösen Fragen ein ausgeprägter Moralist und theologisch ein Vertreter der Prädestinationslehre in der Tradition Calvins. Seine ?Stärke war jedoch die pastorale, kirchenorganisatorische und politische Tätigkeit. Aus puritanischem Rigorismus forderte er 1624 mit Erfolg das Verbot aller Formen des Theaters. Die kirchlichen Feiertage wurden 1619 auf Weihnacht, Ostern und Pfingsten reduziert; dafür fanden in unregelmässigen Abständen Buss- und Bettage statt. Breitinger sorgte für die Aus- und Weiterbildung der Pfarrer sowie für eine strenge Kontrolle ihrer Amtsführung. Zur Förderung der Bildung der Landbevölkerung verfasste er 1637 eine Landschulordnung. [.] Unter Breitinger gelangten die Wesenszüge der zwinglianisch-calvinistischen Zürcher Kirche zu vollster Ausprägung. Er selbst verband in seiner Person ideologische Entschlossenheit, oft brüskierende Impulsivität, strenge Selbstdisziplin und das Bedürfnis nach kollektiver Disziplinierung mit persönlicher Mitmenschlichkeit, Hilfsbereitschaft und Humor.? (H. Meyer, in: HLS). Relativ ausführlich s. Emil Egli, in: Hauck, Bd. 3, 1897, pp. 372?375. ?Seit Bullinger ist Breitinger der erste namhafte, überhaupt einer der bedeutendsten Vorsteher der Kirche Zürich. Er hat der Reformationskirche die Gestalt gegeben, die sie im ganzen bis in die neuere Zeit bewahrt hat.? (p. 372). Vgl. auch K. Dändliker, Geschichte der Stadt und des Kantons Zürich, 2, 1910, bes. p. 409 ff. ?? Johann Gross (1581?1630), Bürger der Stadt Basel, Pfarrer zu St. Margrethen bei Basel 1604, zu St. Elisabethen in Basel 1607, zu St. Peter ibid. 1611, auch Professor der Theologie seit 1610 (HBLS, nicht mehr in HLS). ??

        Horae Subseciuae: Observations And Discourses.

      [Eliots Court Press] for Edward Blount, London 1620 - 8vo (163 x 108 mm). [8] 1-222, [4] 223-324, [2] 325-417 [1], [2] 419-503 [1], [2] 505-542 pp. Signatures: A4 (B-X)8 Y4 Z8 (Aa-Kk)8 (Ll-Mm)4 (Nn-Oo)8, P8 a blank, errata on A8v. Includes separate title-pages for the following sections: A discourse upon the beginning of Tacitus , A discourse of Rome, A discourse against flatterie, A discourse of lawes. Contemporary English calf, rebacked to style (extremities rubbed, corners scuffed). Internally little browned and spotted in places, occasional annotations in contemporary hand (mostly cancelled in ink), title-page soiled and backed with paper to restore chipped blank margins. Five text leaves with small tear at lower or upper margin, costing a few letters (this does not affect the text of the discourses by Hobbes). Beside the mentioned defects, still a very good copy. ---- STC 3957 (2nd ed.). FIRST EDITION of one of the scarcest and most portentous works of Jacobean literature, the Horae Subseciuae is famous not only for the significan appeal of the essays ascribed to WILLIAM CAVENDISH, but also - even more important - for the three discourses now known to have been authored by the great philosopher THOMAS HOBBES and to constitute his earliest published work: "A Discourse upon the Beginning of Tacitus," "A Discourse of Rome," and "A Discourse of Lawes." The attribution of these three essays in the Horae Subseciuae to HOBBES has become generally accepted. He was thought for 300 years a candidate for authorship. However, the discovery by Strauss in the 1950s of a manuscript at Chatsworth of the 'Horae Subsecivae' in Hobbes' hand, and still more the Wordprint analysis of Reynolds and Saxenhouse (Thomas Hobbes: Three Discourses: A Critical Modern Edition of Newly Identified Work of the Young Hobbes, Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1995), seem to have been generally convincing. Certainly, having read their analysis, and not forgetting the weaknesses and presuppositions inherent in Wordprint analysis (and other such statistical analyses of authorship), their work is far more convincing than dissenting voices such as Fortier ("Hobbes and 'A Discourse of Lawes': The Perils of Wordprint Analysis," Review of Politics, 59:4 (Fall, 1997), pp. 861-87). For example, Aravamudan in "Hobbes and America" (Carey and Festa, eds., Postcolonial Enlightenment, Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2009) and Rahe's chapter "Thomas Hobbes's Republican Youth" in his Against Throne and Altar: Machiavelli and Political Theory under the English Republic (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2008), both explicitly affirm Hobbes' authorship of the three discourses in light of the work of Reynolds and Saxenhouse and the responses their work generated. Rahe also argues strongly for the similarity of philosophical argument between "A Discourse of Lawes" and Hobbes' later "De Cive" and "Leviathan." Thomas Hobbes of Malmesbury (1588-1679) is a towering figure not only of English political theory, but of English literature generally. Aside from ¿Leviathan,¿ he translated both Thucydides and Homer into English, took an active (if curmudgeonly) part in the court of Charles II, and wrote half-a-dozen other minor masterworks of political theory. In his own time and since, Hobbes has remained a figure of extraordinary controversy, having been accused of atheism in the 17th century, amorality in the 18th and 19th, and authoritarianism in the 20th. At the same time, though, his works have given rise to a greater body of literature than any other English political philosopher, from works by Locke and Clarendon in the 17th century, to the works of Oakeshott in the 20th. William Cavendish, 2nd Earl of Devonshire (c. 1590 - 20 June 1628) was an English courtier and politician who sat in the House of Commons from 1614 until 1626 when he succeeded to the peerage and sat in the House of Lords. Cavendish was the second son of William Cavendish, 1st Earl of Devonshire, by his first wife Anne Keighley. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Novum Organum

      1620. BACON, Francis.Novum Organum.London: John Bill, 1620.First edition of Bacon?'s Novum Organum (a ?"new instrument?" to replace the old Organon of Aristotle), which had a revolutionary impact on early modern science by laying the foundation of the inductive method.Bacon?'s ?"insistence on making science experimental and factual, rather than speculative and philosophical, had powerful consequences. He saw clearly the limitations of Aristotelian and scholastic methods and the growing breach between the thinking of his time and that of the Middle Ages is more precisely formulated than in that of, say, Tommaso Campanella or Giordano Bruno. As a philosopher Bacon?'s influence on Locke and through him on subsequent English schools of psychology and ethics was profound. Leibniz, Huygens and particularly Robert Boyle were deeply indebted to him, as were the Encyclopédistes, and Voltaire, who called him ?'le père de la philosophie experimentale?" (PMM). Although the engraved allegorical title—with its evocative engraving of a modern explorer?'s ship setting confident sail through the Pillars of Hercules, the edge of the world as far as the ancients knew it—gives the title as the ?"Instauratio Magna?", the book constitutes the planned second part of Part II of the Instauratio (the first part having already appeared as De Augmentis and Book I of The Advancement of Learning). Bacon planned the greater whole in six parts, recalling the six days of the Creation (the plan of the whole work is first printed here), but never completed it. The Novum Organum remains its most influential part. The Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society were soon to be filled with exactly the kind of ?"Histories?", careful collections of experimental data, that Bacon here recommends.Gibson 103b. Grolier/Horblit 8b (1st issue). Norman I:98. PMM 119.Very infrequent scattered light foxing, with occasional marginal pinpoint wormholing, not affecting readability. Age-wear to contemporary calf boards, with a few cuts, wormholes on rear board. A desirable copy in very good condition of this landmark.

The philosophical exposition of the experimental method in science, which greatly influenced the creation and development of the first scientific academies?"the ?Invisible College,? the Royal Society, and the Académie Royale des Sciences, with inestimable effect on the development of scientific thought. At a time when scholars still relied on classical authority and metaphysical speculation to learn about the world they lived in, Bacon conceived a new means of acquiring true knowledge of the world via observation, experiment and inductive reasoning, the type of logical thinking that ascends from specific facts to the establishment of general laws and principles. Bacon saw this novum organum, or ?new instrument? as the means of bringing about a ?great revolution? (instauratio magna) in thought. Once taught the new experimental method, everyone would be capable of engaging in scientific investigation, unlocking the secrets of nature and applying the results (ideally) for the betterment of humankind. Bacon's vision of science inspired the subsequent foundation of the first scientific academies, and also opened up the question of science's relationship with government and society. Bacon originally envisioned the Instauratio magna in six parts, of which only two were completed: De augmentis scientiarum (1623), and Novum organum, which, along with the introduction to the third part (Parasceve ad historiam naturalem et experimentalem), and two sets of Aphorisms, makes up the present work.

        Il Solimano Tragedie

      Small 4to. Florence: Pietro Cecconcelli, 1620. Small 4to, [xiv], 162, [ii] pp. With an etched title-page and five double-page etched plates by Jacques Callot. Strictly contemporary limp vellum, backstrip titled in manuscript, some wear and soiling to binding and an inoffensive waterstain in the lower margin from a2-D2, but an entirely unsophisticated copy with superb strikes of the plates. First edition of this important tragedy, produced in 1619 and published many times in the 17th century. The illustrations are regarded as some of Callot?s finest work. ?French etcher, engraver, and draughtsman. He was one of the most accomplished printmakers in the Western tradition and one of the major exponents of the Mannerist style in the early 17th century. His often fantastic compositions combine grotesque and elegant elements in a compelling and personal manner.? (Grove, Dictionary of Art). Callot based his illustrations on the work of his colleague Parigi, architect and chief designer of courtly festivities under the Grand Duke Cosimo Medici II, who died two years later causing Callot to return to his native Nancy. Gamba 1810. Cicognara 1086. Lieure 363-368. The book is quite scarce, especially in unsophisticated condition and with such fine impressions of the plates. The Schaeffer copy, for example (1994, lot 38), had the plates on stubs, was cut down slightly, and rebound in recent red morocco. Of the six copies at auction since 1975, only one was in contemporary vellum (1978).

Magnifique reliure en vélin doré de l'époque, oeuvre probable d'un relieur d'Anvers. Quelques auréoles d'humidité ici ou là, mais bel exemplaire. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Nova Italiae Delineatio.

      Amsterdam, 1620 circa. Incisione in rame all'acquaforte, colore d'epoca, cm 39 x 50, 8 (alla lastra) più margini bianchi. Titolo in alto a destra, entro cartiglio costituito da tavola sorretta da figure allegoriche con sottostante la ?Lupa Italia? che allatta Romolo e Remo; in basso a destra, entro altro cartiglio con i busti di Romolo e Remo, due scale grafiche di miglia italiane e germaniche; nel mare ci sono navi e vascelli e la testa emergente di un mostro marino. Carta con reticolato e con margine graduato su tutto il perimetro. Testo francese al verso. Tutti gli elementi della carta derivano dalla ?Italia Nuova? del Magini del 1608. La carta conobbe molte ristampe, tra cui quelle realizzate da J. Jansonium e inserite nei più diffusi atlanti olandesi della prima metà del 1600, tra cui quello dei Blaew; tra queste se ne segnala una datata 1641, con scale grafiche in basso a sinistra e con l'inserimento, in basso a destra, di otto stemmi degli stati più importanti. La carta è peraltro identica a quella fiancheggiata complessivamente da dodici vedute di città, da otto riquadri con costumi italiani e da otto stemmi che la rendono ricca di sfarzo e molto decorativa. Esemplare in tenue coloritura e in assoluto buono stato di conservazione (l'alone che si percepisce al margine inferiore è solo un riflesso fotografico).

        Emblemes, ou devises chrestiennes

      1620. DE MONTENAY, Georgette. Emblemes, ou devises chrestiennes. [8, including blank], 100, [8] ff. Illustrated with wood engraved title-vignette and 100 engraved plates by Pierre Woeiriot, printed on facing pages. Small 4to., 210 x 150 mm, bound in contemporary vellum, early manuscript title on spine. La Rochelle: Jean Dinet, 1620. |~||~||~||~| First and Only Emblem Book written by a Woman, the First French Emblem Book with Engraved Emblems, and one of the First Protestant Emblem books. This edition of 1620 comprises a new title-page and preface with the very rare original 1567 sheets of the 100 emblems as printed for the first time. An astonishing fact for this date, these original sheets survived more than 50 years during highly precarious times of the religious wars, Inquisition and the plague. The 1567 edition is unobtainable; it survives in only one copy in the Royal Library in Copenhagen! The latest research by Adams, Rawles and Saunders indicates that de Montenay's Emblemes "was withdrawn from circulation…but this remarkable publishing history does not stop there; in 1620, the first edition (from Lyons) is reissued in La Rochelle: we have to envisage printed sheets being preserved for over 50 years from 1567, and ultimately making their way across France to La Rochelle" (A Bibliography of French Emblem Books, p. 177). The coppperplate engravings by Pierre Woeiriot (1532-1599), French engraver, goldsmith, painter, sculptor and medallist, are all signed with the artist's mark of the Lorraine cross. The first emblem also has his monogram. Woeriot's engraved designs are highly imaginative, delicate and artistic renderings. They are set within in-depth backgrounds of lush landscapes and/or architectural settings of castles, churches, private and public houses, street scenes, and atmospheric cottages in local villages. "The first book of Christian emblems printed in French" and the only emblem book written in any language by a woman (Larsen & Winn, Writings by Pre-Revolutionary French Women, p 125). De Montenay's dedication beginning on a2 is to Jeanne d'Albret, Queen of Navarre, a well-known supporter of Calvinistic ideas, thus offering a clear signal of the author's Calvinist sympathies. The first emblem in the series depicts Jeanne d'Albret laying the foundations of the Protestant faith with bricks (or is it books?). Georgette de Montenay (1540-1581), one of an exceptionally small number of sixteenth-century women poets, was part of the entourage of the daughter of fellow poet Marguerite de Navarre. In the preface, De Montenay claims to be the first to write religious emblems: "Alciat feit des Emblémes exquis//Lesquels voyant de plusieurs requis//Desir me prit de commencer les miens//Lesquels ie croy estre premier Chrestiens." Our copy does not have the paste-over corrected version of Emblem 18 from 1567. "Emblem 18 on g2 was modified during, or shortly after printing, and in most copies (of the surviving 1571 edition) the engraving was replaced, by pasting over the original. Many 1620 copies do not have this correction" (Adams, Rawles & Saunders II, 180). However, our copy does have folio b4, a blank. The question of the author portrait is complex and inconclusive; no copies we have located of the 1620 edition contain the portrait despite Landwehr's claim in his citation Romantic Emblem Books # 533. Adams, Rawles & Saunders state that in many copies a portrait of Montenay, also by Woeriot, dated 1567, is bound in with the preliminaries" (Ibid, II, 180). After the 1567 first edition, a second issue appeared in Lyon in 1571 using the same engraved plates. Woeiriot's copperplates were used again for editions published in Zurich 1584, Heidelberg 1602 and Frankfurt 1619 with a Latin text. All of these editions are very rare. Slightest of chaffing to binding extremities, else a fine copy of a very rare book. Exceedingly rare on the market: only one copy (Hoe) listed on ABPC. OCLC finds 5 locations in the U.S. (NYPL, Huntington, National Gallery, Univ. of Washington, Princeton). PROVENANCE: Ink inscription dated 1634 and illegible scribble on front free endpaper.
