Durch seine Methodik und relative Neutralität gilt er als einer der ersten Naturwissenschaftler im modernen Sinne. 1558 veröffentlichte er die ?Magia naturalis? (in der er unter anderem eines der wenigen existierenden Hexensalbenrezepte überlieferte), die ihm ersten Ruhm brachte. Weiters erwähnt er erstmals ein Wassertrommelgebläse zur Erzeugung eines kontinuierlichen Luftstrahles für eine Schmiedeesse in Nettuno südlich von Rom. Eine von ihm 1560 in Neapel gegründete Gesellschaft zur Erforschung der Natur, die Academia Secretorum Naturae , musste auf Befehl des Papstes aufgelöst werden. Seine grundlegende Schrift über Kryptologie mit dem Titel De furtivis literarum notis (Über die verborgene Bedeutung der Buchstaben), die er 1563 veröffentlichte, machte ihn endgültig berühmt. Um 1570 herum entwickelt er die Camera obscura weiter, einen frühen Vorläufer der Fotokamera.Die jeweils 1583 bzw. 1584 veröffentlichten Pomarium (über Obstanbau) sowie Olivetum (über Olivenanbau) flossen ein in sein umfassenderes Werk über Agrikultur, Villae von 1592. Zuvor jedoch, 1586, erschien sein zweites Hauptwerk, ein medizinisches Werk unter dem Titel De humana physiognomia, 1588 gefolgt von einem Werk über die Physionomie der Pflanzen, ?Phytognomica? Hier versuchte er, vom Aussehen und dem Lebenslauf der Pflanzen auf ihre Wirkung zu schließen. So führte er aus, dass Kräuter mit gelbem Saft die Gelbsucht heilen könnten, solche mit rauhen Oberflächen Hautkrankheiten. Wegen seiner Beschäftigung mit Magie und Physionomie musste er sich 1592 vor der Inquisition verantworten, das Verfahren blieb aber für ihn folgenlos. In den folgenden Jahren zog er sich aber vorsichtshalber von den Wissenschaften zurück und wandte sich der dramatischen Literatur zu. Seine Komödie La Trappolaria, eines von vielen erfolgreichen dramatischen Werken, erschien 1596 in Bergamo. 1600 gr. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Le Relationi Universali... divise in sette parti... [and] Aggiunta alla quarta parte dell'Indie

      Venice: presso Alessandro Vecchi, 1622. Small thick quarto; with four engraved maps in the main work; complete with the rare "Aggiunta" section with its 33 woodcuts, 30 of them full-page; an attractive copy in fine condition in contemporary vellum, endpapers renewed; spine lettered in ink at an early date. Mixing the real with the fantastic: early 16th century woodcuts printed a century later. Posthumous edition of the highly regarded Botero chronicle, published in eight parts with eight title-pages, and including the very rare final part, the "Aggiunta alla quarta parte dell'Indie", with its extraordinary woodcuts. This section appears in just two of the very many early editions of Botero's Relationi, those printed by Vecchi in 1618 and 1622/23; the present copy - notable for the excellent dark inking of the images - is an example of the latter, which differs from the earlier printing in having the Aggiunta section laid out in a more pleasing manner with the text more attractively set in a larger font. This version also introduces another printing of one of the woodcuts to highlight the sectional title-page.Both printings are so rare that when the bibliophile Walter Oakeshott first discovered a copy of Botero with the Burgkmair cuts he thought it to be unique. He analyses and discusses the woodcuts at length in his authoritative Roxburghe Club publication "Some Woodcuts by Hans Burgkmair". Although the woodblocks were cut in the sixteenth century they were not published then, and wormholes in the blocks that show clearly in the printing suggest that they must have lain idle for a substantial time.This remarkable series of sixteenth-century woodcuts divides into two parts, one of them comprising seventeen woodcuts depicting natives of India, Africa and Arabia which are generally considered the first serious study of African and Oriental native life and dress made for publication in a European travel book. Of this group, eight cuts are from a much larger block of 1508, which formed a panorama by Burgkmair known as 'The Procession of the King of Cochin'. The panorama was to have illustrated an account of a voyage to India undertaken by the German merchant, Balthasar Springer, on a Portuguese vessel in 1505-6, which was not published; no complete original impression of the block appears to be known and the cuts were issued first in their present form as here.As Eisler remarks ("Terra Australis The Furthest Shore", fig. 1; p.16), these Burgkmair woodcuts, founded on authentic observation of peoples in the Southern World, are 'one of the earliest and most dramatic studies of exotic people from the tropical regions visited by the Portuguese'. They were the immediate source for the extraordinary tapestry 'Triumph of the King of Cochin' by the Arras workshop, now in the Musée des Arts Africains et Oceaniens (see "Terra Australis", Catalogue number 2).The other series comprises fifteen woodcuts from an unidentified source, portraying monsters or 'Prodigies' in a series of extraordinary images which may be taken to represent a general European perception of the mysteries of the undiscovered worlds to the east and south. These depictions of the creatures likely to be found inhabiting these lands are accompanied by the Burgkmair cuts of actual native peoples encountered on a real voyage, without much distinction being drawn between real and imaginary. The weird imaginings include numerous remarkable evolutionary fantasies such as the skiapod whose immense foot has developed to shield him from the fierce sun, and numerous permutations of man-beast combinations. These are the creatures whom one might expect to see at the edges of the more imaginative early maps, recalling Othello telling Desdemona about "the Cannibals that each other eat, / The Anthropophagi and men whose heads / Do grow beneath their shoulders...". The full series of these astonishing images can be seen on the web site of the State Library of New South Wales (sl.nsw.gov.au: search 'Botero' using 'On web site' option).Botero's universal geography was first printed in Rome in 1591, without the eighth part. Unlike most sixteenth century descriptions of far-off places, it was largely compiled from the author's first-hand knowledge. Botero, a Jesuit priest until middle age, travelled widely to investigate the condition of the Christian faith and the state of the Church at the furthest reaches of missionary activity. The observations made during these tours form the basis of his book, which deals with the physical and human geography of Europe, Asia, Africa, the Americas and the East Indies. Four engraved maps in the main body of the work illustrate Europe, Asia, Africa and America.The Asia and America maps both show substantial representations of New Guinea with, in the Asia map, a "Terre incognite Australis" below. In the America map the very large New Guinea has a note that it was named "terre Piccinnacoli" by the Florentine traveller Andrea Corsali. This name appears in different forms in maps of the period, sometimes as "terra psittacorum" or Land of Parrots; Corsali was of course the first man to identify, describe and illustrate the stars of the Southern Cross.

      Apud Io.Baptistam Bozzolam 1622 Opera dedicata al Rev. Giulio Zerlino. Testo latino. Cm.21,5x15,1. Pg.(64), 672. Legatura ottocentesca in mz.pelle con titoli e filetti in oro al dorso a quattro nervature. Piatti marmorizzati. Frontespizio in rosso e nero. Marca tipografica incisa al frontespizio, ripetuta all'ultima carta (in cui compare 1624 come anno di stampa). Il volume comprende anche, del medesimo Autore, "De Horis Canonicis. Tàm privatim, quàm publicè, sub poena restitutionis fructum, & ammissionis distributionum, recitandis, tractatus in quo universae quaestiones, & difficultates, tàm ad internum conscientiae forum, quam ad ius contentiosum pertinentes brevi, claraque methodo exponuntur. Illustrata atque ab Auctore perpolita editio". Brixiae, Apud Io. Baptistam Bozzolam, 1623. Opera dedicata a Cherubino Bettera. Pg.(8), 262, (26). Celebre teologo, il Bonacina nacque a Milano da nobile discendenza nel 1585. Docente di diritto canonico, ascritto alla Congregazione degli Oblati, fu nominato Conte Palatino da Ferdinando II. Fu poi referendario di Papa Urbano VIII, che lo nominò Vescovo di Utica. Fu negli anni romani, fino alla morte avvenuta nel 1631, che si impegnò nella elaborazione dei temi del Concilio di Trento trattando argomenti di diritto canonico ma anche temi fiscali e curiali. La prima edizione del "De Contractibus" è del 1620, e affronta i temi della mercatura, del cambio, della tassazione, delle polizze assicurative, etc. "L'interesse del Bonacina per i problemi economici nasceva dalla conoscenza diretta (maturata in uno dei più importanti centri mercantili quale quello Ambrosiano) dei nuovi sviluppi assunti dalla speculazione commerciale, e accoglieva le sollecitazioni dell'ambiente religioso milanese per una revisione della tradizionale giurisprudenza canonista, che colmasse il divario sempre piu' evidente fra le norme di condotta e pratica concreta, fra insegnamento teologico e linee direttrici dell'agire economico" ("Dizionario Biografico degli italiani", XI, 466). Il trattato "De Horis Canonicis" è in prima edizione.

        De Coelo Animato Disputatio Leonis Allatii amici ex animo cari Opera publicae utilitati procurata

      2 p.l., 44 pp. Small 4to, cont. limp vellum, arms in gilt of Cardinal Francesco Barberini on covers, panelled in gilt with round gilt flower devices in each corner, silk ties gone, a.e.g. [Heidelberg]: G. Vögelin, 1622. First edition, a gift from Cardinal Francesco Barberini to Galileo's assistant and co-author Mario Guiducci, inscribed on the title-page "Ex dono Illustrissime Cardinalis Barberini -- Marij Guiduccij liber est." This is a very rare book; I can locate only six other copies (see below). This copy represents the intersection of some of the most important dynamics of Baroque Rome. Written by Giulio Cesare Lagalla (1571-1624), medical doctor and professor of logic at the Sapienza University, in 1614, the book was seen through the press in Heidelberg by Lagalla's former student and future Vatican librarian Leone Allacci in 1622. This copy was given by Cardinal Francesco Barberini to Galileo's co-author Mario Guiducci in 1623. Lagalla was one of eight select friends and fellow investigators present at Galileo's famous demonstration of his telescope on 14 April 1611 and at Cesi's dinner in honor of Galileo which followed. Lagalla's De Phoenomenis in Orbe Lunae...Disputatio (1612) is the best record of this historic evening. Despite Lagalla's fertile and, at times, antagonistic relationship with Galileo, he has frequently been dismissed as a mere Aristotelian. In fact, as the Coelo animato disputatio makes clear, there was nothing traditional or conservative about his work. The tract was based on an oral dispute organized by the head of the Accademia dei Lincei, Federico Cesi, between Lagalla and the theologian Francesco Diotallevi. The subject of the dispute, held in Cesi's palace in the Borgo Vecchio in Rome, was the vexed question of the nature of celestial movement. Aristotle and Aquinas are the main authorities discussed, but Lagalla also includes references to the anathemas against Origen. The question of whether celestial bodies were moved by some form of soul was part of a larger debate, to which Lagalla devoted much of his life, on the nature of the human soul and its relationship to the body. The idea that the motions of heavenly bodies required constant intervention from an intelligence within the bodies themselves sat uneasily both with traditional Aristotelian and Christian cosmologies. Lagalla was absolutely aware of the dangerous nature of his ideas is evinced by documentation surrounding this book. In March 1620, he wrote to Galileo, saying: "I am about to have my work De Immortalitate animorum ex Aristotelis sententia printed, along with many other pieces of philosophy, among which there is where I show that the heavens are moved by an active soul (anima informante), not merely following the dogma of Aristotle, but also according to the true philosophy, so greatly reviled by the aforementioned [Jesuit] fathers, and deemed by them to be either erroneous or at least rash as a matter of faith. However, by the grace of God, it has been approved by the Holy Office of Rome as an opinion that, without the slightest scruple of error, may be held and published. Everything will be printed in the Stamperia Camerale, and as soon as they are finished I'll send you the books in your honor."-OG, XIII, 26, 6th March 1620, Lagalla (Rome) to Galileo (Florence). Lagalla shared with Bellarmine a dissatisfaction with traditional cosmologies, and denied some of Galileo's conclusions in the Sidereus Nuncius. In 1612, he published with the same printer an attack on Galileo's analogy between the terrestrial and lunar worlds, which he saw as tending towards Giordano Bruno's heresies. Lagalla's arguments on the moon and on the nature of light were taken seriously enough by Galileo for him to prepare a response: his heavily annotated copy of Lagalla's De Phoenomenis in Orbe Lunae...Disputatio (1612) is included in Antonio Favaro's national edition of Galileo's works. Far from being a staunch Aristotelian, Lagalla was a supporter of Galileo's cause: his observations on comets, he says, had lead him to similar conclusions to those expressed by Galileo and Guiducci in the Discorso delle Comete of 1619, which he said he could not "praise and promote enough"-OG, XII, 500-1, 21st December 1619, Lagalla (Rome) to Galileo (Florence). Censorship was a constant threat to Lagalla, due to his heterodox ideas on free will, the immortality of the soul, and cosmology. This may be the reason why this tract, completed in 1614, did not emerge until 1622, and even then not in Italy, but Germany, without a place of publication. The work was printed on the Protestant presses of Gotthard Vögelin, who in 1609 had published Kepler's Astronomia Nova. It was seen through the press in Heidelberg by Leone Allacci, future librarian to Francesco Barberini and a key figure at the Vatican Library. Allacci had recently been made a Reader at the Vatican, and been entrusted with the difficult task of removing from Heidelberg the Palatine Library. While negotiating which books and manuscripts to take to Rome, he also began his lifelong career of editing, though the Coelo Animato predates any works mentioned in his retrospective catalogue, Leonis Allatii Librorum Editorum Elenchus (1659). Allacci had studied medicine under Lagalla and would go on to write his professor's biography in 1644, defending him from charges of unorthodoxy with regards to the problem of providence. Lagalla was concerned with the possible taint that a Protestant printing might have on his book, and wrote to Allacci in February 1623: ''it would not have been possible to wish that my Questione could be printed with greater attention, diligence, and kindness -- your Lordship may imagine how indebted to you I am. Only one thing is wanting: if the book is to come to Italy (something I would like very much, and which will be a goldmine for the printer, because they are awaited with great curiosity), to avoid the contradiction of the imprimatur, that you do another beginning with the name of a Catholic place where it might be printed, and a Catholic printer, because otherwise they will not grant the imprimatur. This job could also be done by bookmen in Rome."-Curzio Mazzi, "Leone Allacci e la Palatina di Heidelberg," Il Propugnature, 1893, p.187, n. 2. Vögelin frequently omitted his location from imprints, as with this book, in order to have access to Catholic markets. It was already too late: Allacci had sent a copy, probably this one, to Francesco Barberini, who acknowledged receipt on 6th February 1623. On the 2nd of October of that year Francesco became a cardinal, the first such act of nepotism by his uncle Maffeo, who was now Urban VIII. Francesco was not only an avid book collector, but also an important broker of information in Barberini Rome, as well as a partial supporter of Galileo. The Roman context into which the book arrived was quite different from that in which it was written: in 1616, Galileo's attempts to separate theological from scientific authority had backfired, but by 1623 he was again on the attack, using the opportunity presented by Jesuit observations of three comets in 1618 to ridicule and satirize everything from their theories of matter to observational skill. The publication history of this dispute deserves a brief description: first came the anonymous [Orazio Grassi's] Disputatio Astronomica de Tribus Cometis anni MDCXVIII (1619), to which Galileo replied under Mario Giuducci's name with the Discorso delle Comete (1619). Next came the Libra Astronomica ac Philosophica (1619) by the Jesuit Orazio Grassi, using the anagram pseudonym Lotario Sarsi. Guiducci then replied directly with the Lettera a Tarquinio Galluzzi (1620). Other texts also contributed to the debate, such as Cysat's Mathemata Astronomica (1619), Scipione Chiaramonti's Discorso della Cometa pogonare (1619), Giovanni Camillo Gloriosi's De Cometis Dissertatio (1624), Giovanni Battista Stelluti's Scandaglio (1622), Fortunio Liceti's De Novis Astris et Cometis libb. Sex (1623), Grassi's Ratio ponderum Librae et Simbellae (1626) and the anonymous Assemblea Celeste radunata novamente in Parnasso sopra la nova Cometa (1619). The culmination of this campaign was Il Saggiatore, perhaps the most violent and funny scientific book ever written. With the patronage of Federico Cesi, it mocked, taunted, and harried Grassi, the author of the Libra astronomica, deepening Galileo's rift with the Jesuits that had opened with the dispute over sunspots a decade earlier. Cesi and Galileo were confident that the papacy of the enlightened Maffeo Barberini might offer fresh opportunities for the new science. They appealed to Urban's literary vanity with stylish satire, bifurcating Baroque Rome into opposing camps. Figures such as Lagalla, who did not quite fit into either of these camps, were left stranded. Despite close friendships with both Cesi and Galileo, Lagalla was denied entry to the Accademia dei Lincei. He considered himself as anti-Jesuitical as anyone in Rome, but was seen by his assumed allies as a dull Aristotelian. Guiducci, for example, described the book in one of his frequent weather reports to Galileo on the Roman climate: "Here, apart from your usual friends, you will find few who are able to appreciate your work properly. Nevertheless, the wit you use so wonderfully to explain your ideas I hope will delight greatly those who haven't yet heard it, and who until now have been used to reading other philosophers' books without pleasure. A few evenings ago I was amazed that someone had patience enough to read cover to cover Guilio Cesare Lagalla's De Coelo animato, which he did in my presence. He then gave me the book, and told me to make sure I didn't turn into a Peripatetic. I replied that I would like, in return for the lesson I had received that evening, to read him again a satire, were Signore Iacopo Soldani to send it to me, concerning the tramp from Stagira [Aristotle], which might please him more than Lagalla's writing had displeased me."-OG, XIII, 160-162, 18th December 1623, Guiducci (Rome) to Galileo (Florence), referring to the fourth Satire del senatore Iacopo Soldani "Contro i Peripatetici" first published in 1751. It seems extremely likely that this is the copy presented here. In the same letter, Guiducci mentions that he has been socialising with Francesco Barberini, and is probably just being discreet in not mentioning him again by name here as the dogged reader of Lagalla. The inscription on the title page of the copy reads "Ex dono Illustrissime Cardinalis Barberini -- Marij Guiduccij liber est" (A present from Cardinal Barberini -- this book belongs to Mario Guiducci). The hand of the inscription seems to be that of Guiducci himself, judging from contemporary autograph letters archived in the Galileo manuscripts of the National Library of Florence. The binding is that of a Barberini cardinal, and in 1623, this could only have been Francesco, as Maffeo was already pope and Antonio was not yet old enough. The edition is extremely rare, with only six other copies known, in Munich (they describe a 1614 edition but, after personal examination, I can confirm it is a ghost; they have the 1622 edition), Oxford, Toronto, Paris, the Casanatense, and the Vatican Library (with provenance from the Barberini library, presumably Maffeo's copy). The verso of the final leaf contains a list of Lagalla's published and unpublished works. A wonderful association copy of a relatively unknown but significant work. With thanks to Prof. Nick Wilding for considerable help with this description. ❧ Riccardi, II, col. 1n. .

      Amsterdam Colijn 1622 - 4 parts in 1 volume, folio (36 x 24 cm. approx.), [4], 44, [3], 46-81 [i.e. 82], [1],[1], 2-9, [1] 2-11 leaves, 110 leaves (complete save for final blank), Engraved additional title, 17 engraved folding maps, 5 engraved illustrations (light toning, some dampstaining, chiefly in the bottom margin towards end, letterpress title slightly soiled and with small chips to corners). nineteenth century red roan-backed marbled paper-covered boards, spine lettered in gilt (extremities rubbed). The first complete account of the Le Maire-Schouten expedition around the world, the first to successfully round Cape Horn, and the first edition in Latin, expanding significantly the Madrid edition of 1601. The first two parts of the book concentrate on the New World and include fine maps of Central and South America, with those on the Pacific coast adding a great deal of new geographical knowledge. Of primary importance, however, is the second part containing the description of the great Dutch navigator Jacob Le Maire's 1615-1617 voyage in search of Terra Australis. Le Maire's rounding of Patagonia via Cape Horn impacted navigation in many ways, but principally by dispelling the idea of an imaginary Southland. Michel Colin issued simultaneous Latin, French and Dutch editions of this work, adding three maps not in the 1601 Spanish edition. Copies are known with a portrait of Le Maire, but this is not called for in the list of plates. In addition, the small map on the title-page is noteworthy for being the first cartographic depiction of California as an island.

      Wolfenbüttel, 7. IX. 1622. - Deutsche Handschrift auf Papier. 1 S. auf Doppelblatt. Folio. Mit Adresse und papiergedecktem Siegel. Unterzeichnet als braunschweigisch-lüneburgischer Rat einen Regierungsentscheid über die Werderischen Vormünder. - Eberhard von Weyhe war Professor der Pandekten in Wittenberg und übernahm 1587 daselbst den Lehrstuhl für kanonisches Recht. "Seit 1587 war Weyhe auch Rat des sächsischen Kurfürsten, geriet jedoch in Wittenberg unter Calvinismusverdacht und wurde infolge seiner Weigerung, die Konkordienformel zu unterschreiben, vertrieben. Seit 1592 Rat, seit 1594 Kanzler des Landgrafen von Hessen-Kassel, wurde er mit diplomatischen Missionen betraut und war seit 1605 holsteinisch-schaumburgischer Kanzler in Bückeburg. 1614 erhielt Weyhe den Titel eines kaiserlichen Rats und wurde 1615 Geheimer Rat und Kanzler in Wolfenbüttel. 1626 schied er als Gegner der prodänischen Kriegspolitik aus, zog sich auf sein Gut Böhme (Lüneburg) zurück, wurde jedoch besonders von Herzog Friedrich Ulrich von Braunschweig immer wieder zu politischen Diensten herangezogen. 1630 nahm Weyhe die Bestallung Herzog Augusts d. J. von Braunschweig-Wolfenbüttel 'als Rat von Haus' an. 1623 wurde er [unter dem Namen 'Der Wehrende'] in die Fruchtbringende Gesellschaft aufgenommen. Neben juristischen Arbeiten veröffentlichte Weyhe u. a. eine Sammlung von Sentenzen und Aphorismen zum Hofleben unter dem Titel 'Aulicus politicus diversis regulis [.] instructus' (1596)" (DBE).

Simón Díaz, Impresos del XVII, 1749 ejemplar de las Heroydas bélicas con sólo 13 hojas. Vecino de Madrid y caballero de la Orden de Calatrava (1623), don Diego de Vera Ordóñez de Villaquirán sirvió en Italia como capitán de infanteríá y luego desempeño como alguacil mayor de la Inquisición de Cataluña, cargo del cual se encontraba jubilado a fines de la década del 1630. De vuelta a Madrid, en esos años hizo el conocimiento del dominico fray Francisco Morán, recién llegado en España como procurador de su orden. Con el apoyo de éste, propuso don Diego encargarse de la conquista de las zonas del Chol y Lacandón en la frontera norte de Guatemala. Con la aprobación de la corona recibió no solamente el título de alcalde mayor de Chiapas, sino también el de adelantado hereditario del reino de El Próspero, como se pensaba denominar la nueva provincia a ser subyugada.

        A Catalogue and Succession of the Kings, Princes, Dukes, Marquesses, Earles, and Viscounts of this Realme of England, since the Norman Conquest, to the present yeere 1622. Together with their Armes, Wives and Children; collected by Raphe Brooke Esquire, Yorke Herauld, and by him inlarged, with amendment of divers faults, committed by the Printer in the time of the Authors sicknesse

      NP 1622 - 4to. [8],392,[2],pp. Bound in modern three-quarter calf over marbled boards protected by mylar. Gold-lettering and stamped floral decorations on spine. Raised bands. Modern endpapers. Title-page with decorative woodcut border. Title page with author's name spelled incorrectly "Raphe." Second edition of Brooke's famous 'Catalogue of English Nobility,' profusely illustrated throughout with woodcuts of coats of arms. Ralph Brooke (1553-1625) was an English Officer of Arms in the reigns of Elizabeth I and James I. The first edition was published in 1619 and was full of errors, which intensified the already excising feud between Brooke and William Camden, a fellow Officer of Arms. In the foreword of this edition, Brooke fails to take responsibility and blames his printer William Jaggard for the mistakes in the first edition. Augustine Vincent, a friend of Camden, set the record straight in his 1622 work 'A Discoverie of Errors' in which he points out that Brooke, not Jaggard, was responsible for the errors. Jaggard happily served as the printer on Vincent's work. Decorative initials and headpieces. One page-added manuscript (tipped-in) with code of arms. Some entries annotated in text, few sentences with underlining. Age wear on boards. Paper-split along gutter on free front endpaper, firmly holding. Water staining on few pages. Rippling to leaves. Some errors in paging, as published. Overall very good condition. Fascinating 17th-century work on the genealogy of English nobility. Rare, complete second edition.
