        OOST ENDE WEST-INDISCHE SPIEGHEL WAER IN BESCHREVEN WERDEN DE TWEELAETSTE NAVIGATIENGHEDAEN INDE JAEREN 1614, 1615, 1616, 617, ENDE 1618

      Zutphen: Andries Janssz van Aelst, 1621.. 192pp. plus two folding maps and twenty-three plates (five folding). Small oblong quarto. 19th century vellum. Very minor soiling and toning. Very good. A fundamentally important record of Dutch circumnavigation, military activity, and trade rivalry in the early 17th century, this narrative was first published in Leyden in 1619 and later published in French and the present Dutch, in 1621. It is appropriate that this volume contains the accounts of both Joris Van Spilbergen and Jacob Le Maire's voyages, since the two were intertwined. Van Spilbergen undertook his voyage on behalf of the Dutch East India Company (VOC). Le Maire's father, Isaac, had had a falling out with the VOC in 1605. He outfitted his own vessel for a circumnavigation, captained by his son, Jacob, and by Willem Corneliszoon Schouten, in order to lessen the VOC's trade monopoly. The first part of this volume contains the account of Spilbergen's circumnavigation, while the later part treats the voyage of Le Maire. Of the two voyages, that of Le Maire and Schouten is the more significant. They discovered a new passage to the Pacific south of the Straits of Magellan, sailed around Tierra del Fuego, and named Cape Horn. Sailing to the west, they discovered the islands of the Taumoto Archipelago, the Tonga group, the Solomon Islands, and several islands along the northern coast of New Guinea. These discoveries contributed greatly to the European knowledge of the South Pacific. When Le Maire and Schouten's ship reached Jakarta in late 1616, they were seized by agents of the Dutch East India Company and sailed the rest of the way back to the Netherlands accompanied by Van Spilbergen's fleet. Le Maire died en route. The main contribution of Van Spilbergen's exploration was in the Philippines and the Ladrone Islands. He also performed important military work for the Dutch government, raiding Spanish shipping and settlements along the coast of South America. Many of the locations he visited and raided are depicted in the woodcuts. Van Spilbergen was apparently impressed with Le Maire and Schouten's achievement, and had the account of their explorations published together with his own voyage. The work went through several printings in many languages. The book contains a wealth of images of the islands and peoples of the South Pacific, including a map of Tierra del Fuego and the "Straits of Le Maire," the "Cocos" Islands (Tafahi), and the "Hoornsche" Islands of the Tonga group. It also includes the important map showing Le Maire and Schouten's route across the Pacific, and maps of the Philippines. The illustrations include views of the Straits of Magellan, Acapulco, Lima, and Concepcion. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 621/118. BORBA DE MORAES II:276. TIELE- MULLER 69. HILL 1619 (ref).

      1621 - TAYLOR, Thomas. The Parable of the Sower and of the Seed. Declaring in foure severall grounds, among other things: 1. How farre an Hypocrite may goe in the way towards heaven, and wherein the sound Christian goeth beyond him. And 2.

Taylor (1576-1633), a Fellow of Christ's College, Cambridge, was a Puritan divine known as "a brazen wall against Popery." He preached before Queen Elizabeth at the age of only 25. He wrote several books, among them "The Mappe of Rome," (1620), five sermons on the gunpowder treason plot.

        Le Réveil de Chyndonax Prince des Vacies Druydes celtiques diionois, avec la saincteté, religion, & diversité des Ceremonies observees aux anciennes Sepultures.

      - Par I. G. D. M. D. Finely engraved coat-of-arms of Roger de Bellegarde on recto of second leaf, one engraved folding plate (lightly dampstained), & several woodcuts in the text. 10 p.l., 176, [14] pp., one leaf of errata. Small 4to, 18th-cent. polished speckled calf (minor dampstaining & browning), double gilt fillet round sides, spine gilt in compartments incorporating a gilt stamp of a giraffe. Dijon: C. Guyot, 1621. First edition of this uncommon book describing one of the most sensational archeological discoveries of the 16th century. In this work, Guénébauld (d. ca. 1630), a physician in Dijon who had studied medicine in Padua and Rome, describes his discovery in 1598 in his vineyard at Poussat of a coffin with a Greek inscription eulogizing Chyndonax, a priest of Mithras. He interpreted it to be an archdruid. Guénébauld’s discovery, near a Roman road, provoked a period of intense interest in druidism in Burgundy. Casaubon, Saumaise, and de Thou all were fascinated by this find. The coffin was later owned by Cardinal Richelieu. "This discovery was a very exciting affair that attracted considerable attention; it consisted of a cylindrical stone coffer, about a foot in height, that contained a glass cinerary urn. On the base of the coffer was a Greek inscription mentioning Mithras and also a name interpreted by Guenebauld as Chyndonax, who, because he was described as a chief priest, was assumed to have been necessarily an important druid. Guenebauld himself published this find some years later in a delightful little book [the present work], complete with illustrations, which seems to be one of the first treatises in the history of transalpine archaeology that dealt with the problems of a single excavation."–T.D.

Illustrated with 273 woodcuts, many full and half page, some signed with the monogram "RMD," and generally attributed to Hans Rudolf Manuel Deutsch (fl.1525-1572) or, less commonly, Blasius Weffring. Previously published in 1556 and 1561, this edition seems scarcer than either of the previous. PRINTING & THE MIND OF MAN 79: "The first systematic treatise on mining and metallurgy and one of the first technological books of modern times." Herbert Hoover, who first translated this book into English, described this title in his autobiography as "the first important attempt to assemble systematically in print the world-knowledge on mining, metallurgy, and industrial chemistry. It was the great textbook of those industries for two centuries and had dominated thought and practice all that time. In many mining regions and camps, including the Spanish South America, it was chained to the church altar and translated by the priest to the miners between religious services." The book combines a profound technical and financial knowledge of mining with an underlying interest in the health and daily routine of mine workers. The woodcut impressions are strong and dark. As customary with this title, there is browning throughout, occasionally heavy. Small piece of title page repaired with no loss of text or illustration; ink names of David Stuart dated 1771 and Joseph Robertson dated 1830 on title page.

Écrits uniquement pour la famille à partir de papiers du maréchal, ils furent édités par le neveu de l'auteur, Charles de Neuchaize.

        Arithmeticorum libri sex, et de numeris multangulis liber unus. Nunc primum Graece & Latine editi, atque commentariis illustrati. Auctore C. G. Bacheto.

      H. Drouart, Paris 1621 - Editio princeps of "the first systematic treatise on algebra" (David Eugene Smith, Rara Arithmetica). First printing of the Greek text, accompanied by Xylander’s Latin translation (1575) and Bachet’s commentary. "The most famous edition of the Arithemtic was that of Bachet de Mézeriac (1621). Bachet glimpsed the possibility of general principles behind the special problems of the Arithmetic and, in his commentary on the book, alerted his contemporaries to the challenge of properly understanding Diophantus and carrying his ideas further. It was Fermat who took up this challenge and made the first significant advances in number theory since the classical era." (John Stillwell, Mathematics and Its History, p.51). Fermat’s son published in 1670 the second edition of this work adding his father’s notes and an essay by Fermat’s correspondent Jacques de Billy."Although entitled an arithmetic this is really a treatise on algebra, the first systematic one ever written. It contains, however, a good deal of matter upon Greek theory of numbers, notably the ‘Clavdii Gasparis Bacheti Sebusiani, in Diophantvm, Liber Primus,’ ‘Liber Secundus,’ and ‘Liber Tertius.’ A certain amount of this work also enters into the treatise itself, but this is generally algebraic in character, the standard problem requiring the finding of a number satisfying given conditions. This leads to numerous indeterminate (Diophantine) equations." (Smith, Rara Arithmetica, p.348)."One of Diophantus’ major steps is the introduction of symbolism into algebra Diophantus called the unknown ‘the number of the problem,’ For our x2 Diophantus used ?Y, the ? being the first letter of ‘dynamis’ (power) The appearance of such symbolism is of course remarkable but the use of powers higher than three is even more extraordinary. The classical Greeks could not and would not consider a product of more than three factors because such a product had no geometrical significance. On a purely arithmetic basis, however, such products do have a meaning; and this is precisely the basis Diophantus adopts." (Kline, Mathematical Thought from Ancient to Modern Times, p.138-44)."Although many of the problem-solving methods we now know as algebra are very ancient, the explicit statement of the notion of an equation, that is, the equivalence of two formally different expressions for the same unknown quantity, was first formulated by Diophantus of Alexandria in the second or third century CE. As Bashmakova and Smirnova note [The Beginnings and Evolution of Algebra], ‘Diophantus was the first to deduce that it was possible to formulate the conditions of a problem as equations or systems of equations; as a matter of fact, before Diophantus, there were no equations at all, either determinate or indeterminate. Problems were studied that we can now reduce to equations, but nothing more than that’." (Landmark Writings in Western Mathematics, p. 391).Honeyman 891. Folio: 338 x 217 mm.

        Epitome Troporum Ac Schematum et Grammaticorumet Rhetoricorum

      London - Ex Typographia Societatis Stationariorum, 1621 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Hardbound in paper covered boards. Very scarce. Only three copies are noted on the ESTC. Joannes Susenbrotus (c1484 - c1543) was a German humanist, teacher of Latin, and author of textbooks. He wrote several books in Latin, amongst them a Latin textbook Grammaticae artis institutio and a collection of Christian poems. His rhetorics textbook Epitome troporum defines 132 tropes and figures and gives examples of their use in ancient literature as well as references in contemporary books on rhetorics. Susenbrotus' textbooks spread his name to pupils all over Europe. William Shakespeare seems to have known Epitome troporum, since - as T. W. Baldwin pointed out - he uses numerous examples from Susenbrotus' book in his works. He is also a well-known rhetorician to other Elizabethan writers and poets such as Gabriel Harvey, Thomas Nashe and Thomas Watson. On 12 March 1615, students of Trinity College, Cambridge, played the Latin comedy, Susenbrotus, or Fortunia, probably written by John Chappell, in the presence of King James I at Royston. As late as 1660 the English educationalist Charles Hoole recommends Susenbrotus' Epitome as a textbook for grammar schools. The volume is bound with Thomas Farnaby's 'Figurae Tropi et Schemata' (1616). Only one copy of this is noted in existence at Aberdeenon the ESTC. Thomas Farnaby (c1575 - 1647) was an English schoolmaster and scholar. His works chiefly consisted of annotated editions of Latin authors Juvenal, Persius, Seneca, Martial, Lucan, Virgil, Ovid and Terence, which enjoyed extraordinary popularity. He is also the author of textbooks on rhetoric and Latin grammar. On 6 April 1632, Farnaby was presented with a royal patent granting him, for the space of twenty-one years, the sole right of printing and publishing certain of his works. Condition: The binding is tight and firm. There is some wear to the extremities including complete loss to the leather. The spine has been laminated and there are a few handling marks to the boards. Internally the pages are generally clean with the occasional handling mark and odd spot. There is some writing on the title page and an ink annotation to one page of the figurae tropi. There is a smallink stamp mark to the front pastedown. Overall the volume is in good only condition..

        Discursos politicos.

      Barcelona, Sebastian de Cormellas, 1621. - Printed within a double rule border. (2), 80 ll. [numerous errors in foliation]. 4°, early limp vellum (stained, loosening). A few faint stains. Overall in fine condition. Contemporary inscription on title-page; bookplate of the Auersperg collection. ---- FIRST EDITION. This work, which includes references to the Americas, and a discussion of the impact of overseas possessions on domestic policy, comments at length on a @consulta of the Real Consejo de Castilla that had been written by Diego del Coral y Arellano. The @consulta dealt with the marked decline in the population of Castile, and made brief recommendations on how to change that trend. Fernández de Navarrete elaborates on these measures, which included cutting taxes, reducing the number of people at Court exempt from taxation, reducing the Court's expenditures, allowing fewer religious houses to be established and setting a minimum age for entering religious orders. These suggestions were further developed in the author's @Conservacion de monarquias, Madrid, 1626. Fernández de Navarrete was a canon of Santiago de Compostela and royal chaplain and secretary; he also published translations of Seneca.According to the letter from Miguel de Prats to Fernández de Navarrete that serves as a preface to this volume, the @Discursos was published without the author's knowledge. Prats, a protégé of Fernández de Navarrete's brother Alfonso (who died a martyr in Japan), found a manuscript of the work in the luggage of a man who had died in Barcelona, and decided to publish it, fearing the author was too modest to do so himself.Palau and Salvá both state that the @Discursos was published by Prats but appeared without the author's name; perhaps they had seen a different issue, since this copy has Fernández de Navarrete's name on the title-page. The imprint and collation given in Palau and Salvá agree with this copy.@Provenance: From the library of Wolfgang Engelbert, Graf von Auersperg (1610?73), with his bookplate. The accession inscription on the title-page was written by Dr. Schonleben, a noted historian and theologian, and a close friend of the Graf. See J.

      - Amsterdam, Jan Jansz, 1621.Oblong 8vo. Contemporary vellum (sl. soiled), with ties. With 25 engraved maps and plates (6 folding or double-page). (4),172 pp.* First French edition; first published in Leyden in 1619: Oost ende West-Indische spiegel der nieuwe navigatien. - Joris van Spilbergen (Antwerp 1568 - Bergen op Zoom 1620) was appointed in 1614 to head an expedition to the East Indies for the East India Company (VOC) by way of the Strait of Magellan to reassert Dutch claims to access into the Pacific from the east. The first attack on the Spanish was made on Santa Maria in Chili. He went on north to Valparaiso, Acapulco, further along the Mexican coast. In 1616 he reached Guam and Manila and thence to Ternate and Java. Joris van Spilbergen was the second Dutchman to circumnavigate the world. He discovered land along what is now the coast of California. 'Spilbergen had succeeded in establishing the power and reputation of the Dutch East India Company. In Java he took on board the crew of Le Maire and Schouten whose vessels had been confiscated. Le Maire and Schouten had discovered several small islands, Staten Landt, and the Straits of Le Maire, and had been the first to round Cape Horn' (Hill 1619). 'Spilbergen's voyage was the most succesful Dutch circumnavigation to date. The fleet had kept together, there had been little loss of Dutch life, and the expedition had metted a considerable profit for its sponsors' (Howgego S159). 'The Mirror is an extremely important book for the history of Dutch navigation' ( Borba de Moraes p.827). - One tear skilfully repaired, otherwise a very fine copy of the two famous Dutch circumnavigations.Tiele 1030; Tiele, Memoire, 70; Cat.

      1621 - 8vo. pp [ii] 419-932 [xvi] 17-418 [xviii]. Roman and Italic letter, some Greek, woodcut initials, head- and tail-pieces, astronomical and geometrical diagrams and illustrations throughout, outer leaf of synoptic table missing (trimmed to binding). Mostly marginal wormtrail to first gathering without loss, poor quality paper with intermittent foxing and age browning, a good, unrestored well-margined copy bound in original vellum fragment of C15th antiphonal leaf in red, blue, and brown ink. Ex dono of Joannes Moeri to the Jesuit College at [?], 1668 on first t.p. THE FOUNDATIONS OF MODERN SCIENCE FIRST EDITION of Books 1-3 and 5-7, second edition of Book 4, in its entirety one of Kepler's most influential works and the first complete manual of astronomy constructed according to new principles, published as an inexpensive octavo textbook for students in question-and-answer format. It contains Kepler's three laws of planetary motion around the Sun, arguing that heavenly bodies travelled in elliptical orbits at varying speeds rather than fixed circular orbits, and in short, making the Copernican system "nearly 100 times more accurate"(DSB). The principles here would form the theoretical basis for Newton's law of universal gravitation nearly a century later: his Principia (1687) was first introduced to the Royal Society as "a mathematical demonstration of the Copernican hypothesis as proposed by Kepler". 
The first three books outline the mechanics of the earth's motion - which Galileo focused on in his Dialogo (1632). This controversial subject would land the Epitome on the Index of Prohibited Books in 1619. Most importantly Kepler extends his first two laws to the rest, stating that his discoveries concerning the orbit of Mars exist for other planets, the satellites of Jupiter, and for the moon which revolves around the earth. Book IV deals with lunar theory and 'harmonic law' - that is, Kepler's scale of the distance between the planets which he describes as the origin of the music of the spheres. "Kepler's harmonic law, which he had discovered just as the Harmonice was going to press" were explored in greater detail (Gingerich, Johannes Kepler II, A). Composition and publication of this volume was interrupted when Kepler's mother Katharina was accused of witchcraft. Kepler was much involved in her defense, and eventual acquittal in 1621. Books V-VII consider the practical geometry, and problems that arise, from the more theoretical discussions of elliptical and lunar theory in the first half of the book. They also offer a theoretical explanation for the Rudolphine Tables or maps of constellations Kepler had begun in his apprenticeship with Tycho Brahe at his observatory outside Prague, and completed after the astronomer's death when Kepler was appointed to take Brahe's place as astrological advisor to Emperor Rudolph II. "From 1630 - 1650 the Epitome was the most widely read treatise on theoretical astronomy in Europe" DSB 7 & 8 p. 302. A rare and very influential work by one of the most famous astronomers even to this day, whose work radically altered the course of modern astronomy. 
The book has been bound in a curious order, though complete. Book 4 (++8, Aaa-Mmm8), then Books 5-7 including index and errata leaf (+6, 4A- 4S8, 4T2, 4V8), and finally Books 1-3 with a few gatherings reshuffled (B8, *6, A8, C8-Bb8, Cc6) almanac at the very end (**-***4). [Attributes: Hard Cover]
