HONDIUS, Henricus.
1621. Rare first edition (the only edition in the original Dutch) of a richly illustrated work on the pioneering Dutch "scientific" approach to the military "arts", published soon after the resumption of the Eighty Years' War for Dutch independence from Spain at the end of the Twelve Years' Truce (1621). It was written by the cartographer, engraver and mathematician Henricus Hondius (1573-1649) in The Hague, not related to the Hondius family in Amsterdam. The text is divided into four parts, treating fortification, heavy artillery, light artillery and finally logistics, practical engineering and pyrotechnics. It stands out as a work directly aimed at the practice in the field, and is based on warfare as practiced in the Dutch Republic under Maurits of Nassau, Prince of Orange. Under Maurits and his younger brother and successor Frederik Hendrik, Dutch military equipment became the best and most highly developed in Europe. They and this book helped turn military studies into a science, both reflecting and helping to bring about the Dutch golden age.With the contemporary owner's inscription on title-page of Herzog Wilhelm VI von Sachsen-Weimar (1598-1662), and traces of a bookplate on paste-down. With some gutter folds reinforced, some leaves slightly browned and an occasional spot, or small marginal tear, chip or hole, one slightly affecting the border of one folding plate, but otherwise in very good condition, with large margins and complete with the final blank leaf L2 (not noted in the literature).

It has something in common with Brant's Ship of Fools, Erasmus's Praise of Folly, and More's Utopia, with Rabelais and Montaigne and like all these it exercised a considerable influence on the thought of the time. Dr Johnson deeply admired it, and Charles Lamb's often and strongly expressed devotion served to rescue the Anatomy from a brief period of oblivion" (PMM 120).

ALBERGATI, Fabio
1621. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Fabio Albergati was an important Italian jurist during the late 1500s. He was a staunch proponent of peace and sought peace-making actions in court. He wrote out against dueling and made headway in deterring bandits from their work. However, one of his most significant works was 'Modo di Ridurre a Pace'; a work written to remind politicians and the public alike that civil peace was a necessity to the foundation of society. It was in this book that Albergati made it known that the ruling of a prince was better way of settling disputes than dueling. This 1621 edition is bound in 15th-century manuscript on parchment.

The historical accident of the rediscovery of his works at precisely the moment when the skeptical problem of the criterion had been raised gave the ideas of Sextus a sudden and greater prominence than they had ever before or were ever to have again. Thus, Sextus, a recently discovered oddity, metamorphosed into "le divin Sexte", who, by the end of the seventeenth century, was regarded as the father of modern philosophy. Moreover, in the late sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, the effect of his thoughts upon the problem of the criterion stimulated a quest for certainty that gave rise to the new rationalism of RenŽ Descartes and the "constructive skepticism" of Pierre Gassendi and Martin Mersenne."

The historical accident of the rediscovery of his works at precisely the moment when the skeptical problem of the criterion had been raised gave the ideas of Sextus a sudden and greater prominence than they had ever before or were ever to have again. Thus, Sextus, a recently discovered oddity, metamorphosed into "le divin Sexte", who, by the end of the seventeenth century, was regarded as the father of modern philosophy. Moreover, in the late sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, the effect of his thoughts upon the problem of the criterion stimulated a quest for certaint … [Click Below for Full Description]

SNELLIUS, WILLEBRORD (SNELL; SNELL van ROYEN).
Lvgdvni Batavorum [London], Ex officinâ Elzeviriana, 1621. 4to. Later full vellum. 5 pages with professional marginal repairs, far from affecting text. A fine and clean copy with broad margins. (20), 102 pp. ¶ The rare first edition of Snell's famous work, in which pi was found to thirty-four decimals for the first time, thereby producing a new method for calculating pi - the first such improvement since ancient times.Using Van Ceulen's method, 96-sided polygons give pi correct to 7 places, while the classical method yields only 2 places. Van Ceulen's 35 places could be found with polygons of 230 sides rather than 262 and Van Ceulen's 35 places of pi appear in print for the first time in the present work. De Morgan noted that: "This is a celebrated work on the approximative quadrature, which, having the suspicious word cyclometricus, must be noticed here for distinction" (De Morgan, A Budget of Paradoxes). "In the Cyclometricus (1621) pi was found, by Van Ceulen's methods, to thirty-four decimals; and the thirty-fifth decimal, found in Van Ceulen's papers, was added. Snel also explained his own shorter method, following and improving on Van Lansberge's Cyclometria nova (1616)" (DSB)."He showed how narrower limits may be obtained for pi without increasing the number of sides which gave closer limits for the corresponding arcs. His method was superior to that of Van Ceulen that the 34 places were obtained from a polygon of 2*30 sides, i.e., 1,073,741,824 sides, from which Van Ceulen had obtained only 14 or perhaps 16 places. Similarly, the value for pi obtained correct to two … [Click Below for Full Description]

1621. Manuscrit in-8 de 281 feuillets, demi-chagrin aubergine à coins de l?époque, dos à nerfs orné, tranches dorées, signet, , , , « Une fort belle démonstration du théorème de Bachet » Recueil de notes manuscrites inédites, de rares tirés à part ou d'extraits de Revue d'Adolphe Matrot concernant son explication et sa démonstration du théorème de Bachet. Dans l'histoire de l'arithmétique théorique, Bachet de Méziriac joue un rôle essentiel. Dans les commentaires de son édition de Diophante d'Alexandrie, qu'il publia en 1621 à Paris, il posa, afin de résoudre les équations diophantiennes du premier degré, le théorème qui stipule que tout nombre entier est ou bien un carré, ou bien composé de deux, trois ou quatre carrés. Véritable pierre de touche de la théorie des nombres, ce théorème stimula et excita l'analyse de quelques grands mathématiciens : Fermat au XVIIe (qui en déduit son petit et grand théorème, son équation et ses nombres), Euler au XVIIIe (qui démontrât le grand théorème de Fermat, et s'approcha de la démonstration du théorème de Bachet en élucidant le 6e nombre de Fermat), puis enfin Lagrange (qui, en 1770, démontra la théorème de Bachet, vieux de 150 ans, démonstration reprise et améliorée par Euler en 1776). Adolphe Matrot (1841-1896), major de polytechnique et ingénieur en chef des Mines de Paris s'intéressa, à la fin des années 1880, à la décomposition des nombres entiers. Il rédigea, en 1889, une note ("Notions sur les résidus quadratiques") comme complément au Cours d'arithmétique de Combette. Matrot ignorait alors les recherches d'Euler et Lagrange.

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.

Overall a well preserved and clean copy in contemporary calf boards, early 19th century reback preserving some fragments of the spine and the label, binder's ticket of C. 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, 1621. 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 direc … [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.

His work paved the way for further systematic study of the earth and of its rocks, minerals, fossils, refinery and oil. - Paper a little browned throughout as usual, the three index leaves and the final page with the printer's device apparently never bound in, but still a very charming, genuine copy with both folding woodcut plates present. VD 17, 23:646123A. Brüning 1345.

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]

PLAUTIUS (Caspar)]
[Linz], 1621. 1621. 1 vol in-folio (315 x 197 mm) de: 1 titre gravé ; [3] ff. ; 102 pp. ; [3] ff. (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.

RALEGH [or RALEIGH], Sir Walter
(London: Printed by William Jaggard for Walter Burre, 1621).. Third edition, folio, (lxiv), 54, 53-56, 55-184, 181-555, (1), 510, 515-669, (55) pp, complete and with duplicates of leaves E3 and E4 bound in. Engraved second title dated 1614 as usual, 6 double page maps and 2 double page plans plus an engraved portrait of Raleigh to the printed title. Five leaves in the chronological table at the end cut close to the outer edge with some loss of information, leaf Hh1 with minor loss to the top corner, affecting the pagination only, later owner's inscription, "Geo. Fox, Falmouth, Sept. 11 1804" to the printed title. Overall a well preserved and clean copy in contemporary calf boards, early 19th century reback preserving some fragments of the spine and the label, binder's ticket of C. McDowell, Falmouth, to the corner of the paste down. Composed 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 unlikel … [Click Below for Full Description]
