BARCLAY (Jean.)
Paris, Nicolas Buon, Paris, Nicolas Buon1621 ; fort volume in-8, vélin de l'époque. 8 ff, 1208 pp.Edition originale extrêmement rare. Célébrité lorraine, Jean Barclay est né à Pont à Mousson en 1582. Il était fils de l'écossais Guillaume Barclay, réfugié en France depuis 1573, qui après ses études sous Cujas, sera nommé professeur de droit à Pont à Mousson. Jean Barclay voyagea longtemps dans toute l'Europe, s'attirant l'amitié et la protection des princes les plus célèbres : le duc de Lorraine, le roi Jacques d'Angleterre, le cardinal Barberini. Il est mort le 12 août 1621. Le 31 août de la même année parut son ouvrage fameux l'Argenis, dédié au roi Louis XIII.C'est un roman utopique et poétique à clefs, rédigé en prose latine mêlée de vers. L'action, tissée de combats, de naufrages, de princes travestis se passe surtout en Sicile et en Mauritanie (qui symbolise l'Angleterre). Dès 1623 le roman sera traduit en français par Marcassus. Richelieu et Leibnitz ont admiré ce livre, et selon Dupond, il aurait inspiré les aventures de Télémaque. Les romans allégoriques et satiriques étaient un genre très en faveur à cette époque, où sous des noms empruntés, l'auteur s'efforçait de faire connaître les idées, les mœurs, les défauts et les vices de la Cour et des personnages illustres. L'Argenis est le plus célèbre texte du genre et il aura une influence certaine sur la littérature du temps de Louis XIII. C'est l'histoire voilée des règnes de Henri III et Henri IV, pleine d'allusions mordantes sur la religion et la politique. Richelieu crut y voir par avance les principes de sa poli … [Click Below for Full Description]

Quarta edizione della prima opera in italiano di ostetricia (prima edizione: 1596).

McDowell, Falmouth, to the corner of the paste down. omposed during Ralegh's time imprisoned in the Tower of London, the first edition of 1614 was initially suppressed due to being "too sawcie in censuring princes". Reflecting its time and Ralegh's animosity towards James I, "...it is not a work of history in the academic sense but a political tract of immediate applicability... James was the actual butt of the severe strictures Ralegh passed upon ancient rulers who set themselves above the law..." (PMM). "Only one ruler in the entire history of the world receives unstinted and unadulterated praise from Ralegh: Epaminondas of Thebes... Although Ralegh believed that history could provide examples and precepts for rulers to follow, its events demonstrated only too clearly that they were unlikely to do so..." (ODNB).

DIOPHANTUS of Alexandria.
H. Drouart, Paris. Editio princeps of the first systematic treatise on algebra (Smith, Rara Arithmetica, p. 348), comprising the first printing of the Greek text, accompanied by Xylander?s Latin translation (1575) and Bachet?s commentary. ?The Arithmetica is essentially a logistical work, but with the difference that Diophantus? problems are purely numerical with the single exception of problem V, 30. In his solutions Diophantus showed himself a master in the field of indeterminate analysis, and apart from Pappus he was the only great mathematician during the decline of Hellenism? (DSB). ?The Arithmetica is a collection of problems ? the known Greek books contain 189 problems ? and even though the solutions presented by Diophantus are always quite specific, his solutions do tend to suggest general methods. As a result, Diophantus has often been called the father of algebra, in part because of these methods, but also because of the systematic use of notation and terminology that he introduced in this work. For example, even though he did not have the notation we now use for exponents, he nonetheless had his own effective symbolic way of representing polynomials. But the spirit of the Arithmetica has far more in common with modern number theory than with today?s practice of algebra ? By 1575, the Arithmetica had been translated into Latin, and subsequently into French, and Rafael Bombelli had substantially revised his Algebra before its publication in 1572 as a result of reading a manuscript of Diophantus in the Vatican library and even included 143 problems taken directly fr … [Click Below for Full Description]

Philoponus, Honorius [Caspar Plautius]
First edition. A curious and marvelously illustrated narrative of the discovery of the New World, focused on the story of the Benedictine monks who came to the New World with Columbus on his second voyage; it is intended partly as a Catholic response to the popular "Great Voyages" of Protestant de Bry, and the spreading black legend of the cruelty excised by Spaniards in the conquest and colonization process, accusing the former of telling lies. American Indians are discussed at length and depicted in many of the plates, and an Indian melody is transcribed on pages 35-36. Although interlaced with miraculous, and often imaginative iconographic creations, this is a valuable account of the earliest stages of discovery, which includes authentic details of Caribbean fauna and flora, and Indian customs. Plautius includes a set of plates created specifically for his work, which are fundamentally designed to prove the cruelty and barbaric customs of the American Indians, as well as their domination of unearthly creatures. The plates include: an owl plate with verses -which is not always present; Columbus with an inset map of the Atlantic (facing page 6); a mass being celebrated by St. Brandan on the back of a whale (12); Indians practicing cannibalism (32); a feast prepared for conquistadors (36); priests being martyred while dismantling a heathen shrine (46); natural history plates showing pineapples and potatoes (52); a group of Indians riding a massive sea monster (60, illustrated), and more. The Columbus plate is signed by Wolfgang Kilian (1581-1662), a German master-eng … [Click Below for Full Description]

First published in 1619, Monaco's treatise on sumptuary law discusses, in detail, items of clothing and those who are entitled to wear them. Apparently a well-received book, it went through four editions, the last in 1626. It is an excellent guide to a curious legal mechanism used to police the appearance of the social ranks and, to some extent, morals. Among other rules, men are not allowed to wear a sword unless they are nobles, middle-class women are limited to a single necklace and all women are expected to dress modestly. All editions of this work are scarce. OCLC locates 8 copies of the third edition, 1 in North America (Harvard Law School). Bri … [Click Below for Full Description]

(dont 1 schéma gravé sur bois à pleine page) ; 18 planches gravées à pleine page numérotées et 1 à demi page. La planche représentant Christophe Colomb avec une carte du monde est signée Wolfgang Kilian. (traces de mouillures, quelques comblements discrets de galeries de vers). Plein vélin d'époque, dos à nerfs titré à l'encre, encadrement de filets à froid sur les plats avec, frappés à l'encre noire, un médaillon central représentant l'insigne de l'abaye Benedictine de Michaelbeuern (diocèse de Salzbourg) sur le premier plat, et un autre de leurs armes sur le second, tranches rouges, traces de lacets. Edition originale, deuxième tirage de cette fameuse relation des missionnaires bénédictins qui ont accompagné Christophe Colomb lors de son second voyage vers les Amériques. Bien que jalonné de récits miraculeux, à commencer par la messe célébrée par saint Brendan sur le dos d'une baleine (pl. 2), le récit est plein de détails authentiques des coutumes, de la flore et de la faune des Caraïbes et de ses produits agricoles. Un spécimen de musique est donné aux pages 35-36. L'auteur accuse les récits du protestant de Brys d'être remplis de mensonges, et il insiste sur les cruautés barbares des indigènes à l'appui de la notion que Satan aurait régné sur les religions amérindiennes. Seule la première gravure est signée, par Wolfgang Kilian (1581-1662), maître-graveur d'Augsbourg, mais les autres sont de style comparable et ont probablement été également exécutés par lui.

Sextus Empiricus
1621. Sextus Empiricus. Opera Quae Extant. Genevae M. DC. XXI. Editio princeps of the Greek text. Brunet V, page 327; Schweiger, page 286. [20], 168, 520, [44] pages, including final blank. Folio, contemporary vellum; vellum torn along joints and tips with loss, paper foxed and browned. The preliminaries are misbound in this copy. Leaves 3,4, 5, and 6 are bound 3,5, 4,6. These are the three indexes, the Index Authorum, index titulorum et capitum and the index dictionum Graecarum. The texts themselves, in 6-leaf signatures, have separate pagination and signing. This is the first printed appearance of the Greek text, with parallel columns of Greek text and Latin translation. The Greek text columns are divided into sections, like the Stephanus Plato. The Latin translation are Stephanus’ 1562 Outlines of Pyrrhonism and Gentian Hervet’s 1569 Against the Mathematicians. This is a good example of Renaissance scholarly work. The preliminaries include a list of variant readings from the manuscripts, keyed to the sections of the page of the Greek text. The Latin translations appeared at a time when Sextus’ thought was attracting important attention. Montaigne’s Pyrrhonian essays, Apology for Raimond Sebond, and Sanches, in Quod nihil scitur appeared in 1576. Montaigne’s Pyrrhonian skepticism led to Pascal and to Cartesian skepticism.

It contains Kepler's theory that the orbit of each of the five planets is determined by the circumference of the five platonic solids nested one inside the other. This is illustrated in the famous engraved plate.As well as Kepler's own introductory chapter expounding and defending the Copernican theory, the book contains a reprint of Rheticus' Naratio prima, the first announcement of the Copernican theory, first published in 1540, before De revolutionibus in 1543. This second edition contains Kepler's additional notes reflecting the development of his thinking in the intervening 25 years. Also appended is the first edition of Kepler's response to attacks by Robert Fludd on his Harmonices mundi of 1619.The illustration of the nested solids is a fine engraving, copied in reverse from the engraving that appeared in the first edition of 1596, and still bearing the date 1597 (it is not clear why the engraving was dated a year after the date on the titlepage of the book).'Quixotic or chimerical as … [Click Below for Full Description]

Savile, Henry ].
Oxford: Iohannes Lichfield & Iacobus Short, 1621. Sir Henry Savile (1549-1622), warden of Merton College, Oxford, was one of the foremost scholars of his day and a patron and donor to the library established by his friend Thomas Bodley. The Praelectiones are a series of lectures on Euclid's Elements delivered to inaugurate the Savilian professorships in Geometry and Astronomy, which he founded. Euclid was a life-long interest of Savile's. He stated at one point that he could forget to eat or sleep when absorbed by his study of the Elements. His lectures are today "still of scholarly worth" (Oxford DNB). Small quarto. . [4], 260 pp. Woodcut diagrams throughout, decorative initial letters and headbands. Printed in Roman, italic, and Greek types. Contemporary paneled calf, neatly rebacked in modern calf. Gilt spine with red calf label. Old armorial bookplate on front pastedown, with library withdrawal rubberstamp. Some light toning, offsetting to margins of first and last few leaves from the binding, tear in upper margin of Kk3. A very good copy. First edition. Though many copies of this book exist in old British libraries (especially at Oxford), it is quite scarce on the market, and ESTC notes only five copies in American libraries (Columbia, Folger, Harvard, Huntington, and University of Illinois). STC 21782. Madan I, p. 116. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
Bookseller: Michael R. Thompson Books, A.B.A.A. [Los Angeles, CA, U.S.A.]
