Even his English publisher bragged of Grelot's success with Louis: "The King of France was so pleased with these draughts, that he commanded the author to make them publick, and gave him his letters patents, strictly forbidding any to invade his propriety, by copying them after him". 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. [Attributes: First Edition]

François GARASSE, Pierre DU MOULIN
New edition, after the first published in 1619. Rare. Full brown speckled calf contemporary. Back tooled raised. Lack in head cover. A pale yellow wetness footer on the entire volume. 3 wormholes tail. Copy to the pleasing appearance. The Jesuit Pierre Garasse (1585-1630) is well known for his eccentricities and his diatribes of great violence, up to rudeness and obscenity; it takes in this book his Protestant counterpart (also well known for the same qualities) and his works, notably on the vocation of pastors.

kl.-8. 52 Bll. u. 1 gefalt. Kupferkarte. Kart. 1 gefalt. Taf. fehlt. Durchgeh. schmaler Wasserrand. 1 Ansicht von Cronenburg fehlt (liegt in Kopie bei). EA. Goedeke III, 29, 28 VD17 14:084320E - Georg Greflinger (Pseud. Celadon), 1620 in Neunburg vorm Wald - 1677 in Hamburg, gilt als erster deutschsprachiger Zeitungsredakteur im heutigen Sinne, der für den Nordischen Mercurius, ein seinerzeit modernes Publikationskonzept entwickelte. Er besuchte das evangelische Gymnasium in Regensburg, liße sich 1646 in der Hansestadt als Schriftsteller nieder. Schon 1654 wurde er von seinem Freund Johann Rist zum poeta laureatus gekrönt und in den Elbschwanenorden aufgenommen. Als Dichternamen gebraucht er Seladon und Celadon. In Hamburg war Greflinger sowohl als Übersetzer wie auch als Gelegenheitsdichter ungemein produktiv. Literarhistorischen Ruf erlangte seine Übersetzung des Cid von Pierre Corneille (die erste in Deutschland). In den Jahren 1663/65 begann Greflinger mit der Herausgabe der Zeitung Norddeutscher Mercurius, die von seinen Söhnen bis 1730 fortgeführt wurde. Hier ordnete er die Nachrichten schon nach thematischen Rubriken, behandelte relevante Themen ausführlicher und baute sogar lokale Nachrichten mit ein. Er verwendete verschiedene feuilletonistische Elemente. Als erster Zeitungsroman erschien Die Entdeckung der Insel Pines, welcher zwar utopisch war, jedoch zu der Zeit von den Lesern als wahrer Bericht verstanden wurde. Greflinger zählt zu den frühesten deutschen Journalisten. Das heute übliche Ressort-System geht im Wesentlichen auf ihn zurück. (Siehe auch: ADB IX, 62 … [Click Below for Full Description]

François GARASSE, Pierre DU MOULIN
Par Christophle Girard. New edition, after the first published in 1619. Rare. Full brown speckled calf contemporary. Back tooled raised. Lack in head cover. A pale yellow wetness footer on the entire volume. 3 wormholes tail. Copy to the pleasing appearance. The Jesuit Pierre Garasse (1585-1630) is well known for his eccentricities and his diatribes of great violence, up to rudeness and obscenity; it takes in this book his Protestant counterpart (also well known for the same qualities) and his works, notably on the vocation of pastors. Accusing him of being fed Rabelais, Garasse takes in this book look like a Protestant denouncing the misdeeds of a brother. The style is very happy satirical, allegorical poems combining burlesque and the more direct attacks. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

GUIDUCCI, Mario.
Florence: Zanobi Pignoni, 1620. First edition, extremely rare, of this letter by Galileo's disciple Guiducci to his former professor of rhetoric at the Collegio Romano, Tarquinio Galluzzi, defending Galileo against Orazio Grassi's attacks in his Libra astronomica (1619). This is the rarest of the series of polemical publications which documented the "controversy of the comets," one of the most infamous polemics in the history of science. "The dispute over comets had consequences of great significance both to Galileo and to science in general, as the favorable reception of [Il saggiatore] led him to proceed with the publication of the much more famous Dialogue, for which he was later imprisoned by the Inquisition. That fateful event was in turn intimately connected with the rift between Galileo and the Jesuits, which was widened and made permanent, if indeed it did not originate, in the public dispute about comets. Thus the controversy is closely linked with some of the most dramatic events associated with the dawn of our modern era" (Drake, The Controversy on the Comets of 1618, p. vii). OCLC lists copies in US at Brigham Young, Harvard and Yale. ABPC/RBH list only the Frank Streeter copy (Christie's New York, 16 April 2007). In the latter part of 1618, three comets appeared in the sky over Italy, eliciting lively debate among astronomers as to their nature since, according to Aristotelian orthodoxy, objects beyond the moon could not change shape or state. Unable to observe the comets due to ill health, Galileo nevertheless discussed the phenomena with numerous visitors bu … [Click Below for Full Description]

Magini Giovanni Antonio (1555-1617)
1620. La tavola opera del celebre matematico, astronomo e geografo padovano Giovanni Antonio Magini è inserita nell'atlante "L'Italia" pubblicato postumo dal figlio Fabio a Bologna nel 1620. La figura del Magini rappresenta un punto imprescindibile della produzione cartografica italiana, infatti grazie al suo lavoro ridisegnò la penisola attuando una precisa sintesi degli elementi raccolti dai suoi predecessori ed in parte da lui stesso, ottenendo un risultato nettamente superiore ai precedenti, sia per quanto riguarda il suo contorno e le coordinate delle varie località, sia per quanto concerne la ricchezza delle indicazioni. In particolare, il lavoro paziente ed accurato svolto dal Magini nel procurarsi i dati sui confini degli stati italiani non era mai stato compiuto dai suoi predecessori. L'importanza dell'opera del Magini è testimoniata dal fatto che sarà presa ad esempio per tutto il corso del XVII secolo da editori del nord Europa che si limitarono a copiare o modificare le sue carte.Bibliografia: Motta, p. 3; Arrigoni-Bertarelli, n. 1023; Colombo-Rondanini-GRSD, p. 16 e p. 19; Cremonini 1991, p. 19, n.15.

NAPIER, John.
Lyons: Bartholomaeus Vincentius, 1620. Second (first obtainable) edition of his 'Contructio' (Horblit 77b, 1619), with the first Continental edition of the 'Descriptio' (Horblit 77a, 1614) - "The work which in the history of British science can be placed as second only to Newton's Principia" (Evans 4). "His 'Description of the Wonderful Table of Logarithms' is unique in the history of science in that a great discovery was the result of the unaided original speculation of one individual without precursors and almost without contemporaries in his field." (PMM 116). "Logarithms provided a most important advance in the art of calculation because they reduced multiplication and division to a process of addition and subtraction, and extraction of roots to division." (Dibner 106). "Napier's invention of logarithms was immediately adopted by mathematicians both in England and on the continent, including Briggs and Ursinus, who introduced logarithms to Kepler." (Norman). Kepler "expressed his enthusiasm in a letter to Napier dated 28 July 1619, printed in the dedication of his 'Ephemerides', 1620." (DSB). The 'Descriptio' "contains fifty-seven pages of text explaining the uses of logarithms in both plane and spherical trigonometry and ninety pages of tables. The method of producing the table was not described, but Napier indicated that should this work be suitably received, he would publish another (the Constructio) on how they were calculated. ... He died before he could complete the task, but his son Robert Napier completed and published it in 1619. Napier's 1614 publication i … [Click Below for Full Description]

GORLAEUS (VAN GOORLE, VAN GOOIRLE), David.
[Leyden]: in bibliopolio Commeliniano sumptibus viduae Joannis Comelini, 1620. First edition, extremely rare, of one of the earliest modern works on atomism. "Gorlaeus is counted among the founders of modern atomism, which he proposed as an alternative to Aristotelian matter theory. Because of his notion of atomic compounds, he is also regarded as a contributor to the evolution of chemistry" (DSB). "When David Gorlaeus (1591-1612) passed away at 21 years of age, he left behind two highly innovative manuscripts. Once they were published [as the present work, and as Idea physicae (1610), his work had a remarkable impact on the evolution of seventeenth-century thought. However, as his identity was unknown, divergent interpretations of their meaning quickly sprang up. Seventeenth-century readers understood him as an anti-Aristotelian thinker and as a precursor of Descartes. Twentieth-century historians depicted him as an atomist, natural scientist and even as a chemist. And yet, when Gorlaeus died, he was a beginning student in theology. His thought must in fact be placed at the intersection between philosophy, the nascent natural sciences, and theology" (Lüthy). This is a very rare book. In his review of Lüthy's book in 2012, Henri Krop wrote: "until now Gorlaeus's life and ideas have remained basically unknown because both his elaborate Exercitationes philosophicae and his Idea physicae are extremely rare and copies were unavailable in Dutch public libraries. (However since 1986 the libraries of both Leiden and Leeuwarden have acquired copies of the former.)" We have been una … [Click Below for Full Description]
