Juni 1623 in Clermont-Ferrand gest. 19. August 1662 in Paris) war ein französischer Mathematiker, Physiker, Literat und christlicher Philosoph.

"Charron was a French 16th-century Catholic theologian and philosopher, and a disciple and contemporary of Michel Montaigne. . According to Charron, the soul, located in the ventricles of the brain, is affected by the temperament of the individual; the dry temperament produces acute intelligence; the moist, memory; the hot, imagination. Dividing the intelligent soul into these three faculties, he writes the branches of science corresponding with each. On the nature of the soul, he quotes opinions. The belief in its immortality, he says, is the most universal of beliefs, but the most feebly supported by reason. As to a human's power of attaining truth, he declares that none of our faculties enable us to distinguish truth from error. In comparing humans with animals, Charron insists that there are no breaks in nature.In 1601, Charron published in Bordeaux his third work, De la Sagesse, a system of moral philosophy that develops ideas of Montaigne. Charron also connected Montaigne's scepticism with the anti-rational strand in Christianity. It received the support of Henry IV and of magistrate Pierre Jeannin." [Wiki].

SKINNER, John].
- ESTC S100292; Knuttel 4205a; cf. Ogborn, Indian Ink, pp. 120-129. Rare third edition of an account of the "Amboyan massacre". In 1623 the Dutch governor of the island of Amboina had executed 20 men, among them 10 English merchants and factors in service of the English East India Company, the Dutch company's rival in the spice trade. The men were accused of treason against the Dutch governor, and after confession (partly obtained by torture) they were sentenced to death and subsequently beheaded. The English East India Company instructed John Skinner to produce the present account, which was first published in 1624 and is sometimes ascribed to Sir Dudley Digges. Included is an English translation by J. Wing of a Dutch narration of the event (originally published as Waerachtich verhael vande tidingen gecomen wt de Oost-Indien), followed by the English refutation. The pamphlet was reprinted several times and it would play an important role in the outbreak of the first Anglo-Dutch war in 1652, as Cromwell referred to the incident in his declaration of war.Heavily browned and the first leaves waterstained, mounted and shaved. Rebacked, with the original backstrip laid down. A fair copy.

Willem BLAEU (1571 Ð 1638). Amsterdam, 1623. Copper engraving with modern ouline colour (Very Good), 26 x 35 cm (10 x 14 inches).
- This attractive sea chart features the central coast of Portugal, including Lisbon and the Tagus Estuary, the coast running over to Cascais, and the Setœbal area. The city of Lisbon is portrayed pictorially, as are the saltpans near Setœbal. Both the mileage bars and the title are framed in fine baroque style cartouches. The present chart was part of Willem BlaeuÕs highly important and commercially successful sea atlas, Zeespiegel (1623), which was a vastly enlarged successor of his Het Licht der Zee-vaert (1608). Given LisbonÕs global prominance as a port, this chart was one of the most important components of the atlas. The Zeespiegel remained the ultimate guide to navigation in Europe for some years and was no way superseded until the publication of Jacob Aertsz. ColomÕs De Vyerighe Colom (Amsterdam, 1632). The Blaeu Family: The Leading Cartographers of the 17th Century Willem Jansz Blaeu (1571-1638) was, more than any other figure, responsible for the ascension of Dutch cartography to a globally dominant position. Blaeu, originally from Alkmaar, north of Amsterdam, got his start while serving as an apprentice to the legendary Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe at his observatory of Uranienborg, from 1594 to 1596. Upon WillemÕs return to the Netherlands, he started a business making charts, globes and nautical instruments. His timing was impeccable, as the Dutch economy, based on maritime trade, was booming and there was an insatiable demand for high quality sea charts and nautical kit. Notably, in 1596, the Dutch made their first voyage to the East Indies, which … [Click Below for Full Description]
