ANGELI, Stefano degli.
Rare first edition, the Riccati copy (see below), of an important work on the physics of fluids, composed in five parts in the form of dialogue between the Polish Count Leszczynsky and one Ofredi, who represents the author himself. "Angeli's <i>Della gravita dell'aria e fluidi</i> is largely experimental in character. In it he examines the fluid statics, based on Archimedes' principle and on Torricelli's experiments. It also contains theories of capillary attraction" (DSB I: 164-5).<br/><br/> Among the most famous successors of Galileo, Stephen degli Angeli (Venice 1623 - Padua 1697) studied mathematics at the University of Bologna. He taught literature, philosophy and theology at Ferrara from 1644, and then transferred to Bologna in 1645 where he came under the influence of Cavalieri. So impressed was he with Angeli's ability that Cavalieri entrusted to him the task of correcting and publishing his last work, <i>Exercitationes geometricae sex</i> (1647). <br/><br/> In 1662 Angeli was appointed to the chair of mathematics at Padua, where he remained until his death. This position had previously been held by Galileo, whose experimental method Angeli embraces fully in the present work. While at Padua Angeli corresponded with a number of other mathematicians, including Torricelli and Viviani, and in 1662 he taught geometry, mechanics and astronomy to James Gregory. Among Angeli's other pupils at Padua was Jacopo Riccati (1676-1754), who entered the university in 1693 and was strongly encouraged by Angeli to study the latest methods of analysis. Jacopo was the founder of the Ri … [Click Below for Full Description]

BACON, Francis.
Io. Haviland, Londini, 1623. TP + [1]-[3] = preface + 1-410 + 407-454 (repeating 407-410 as called for in Gibson), small Octavo. Gibson 147.Title framed in double rule, text framed in single rule. With blanks at Aa4 (pp. [369-370]) and Cc6 (pp. [405-406]). A fascinating and influential work that was to constitute the third book of Bacon's projected "Instauratio Magna", a multi-part work which, though never completed, had the overall aim of creating a new system of philosophy and extending man's dominion over nature. This third part of the work was to be devoted to the study of the prolongation of life - a topic that was close to Bacon's heart as he saw this objective as one of the highest goals of his new, operative science. If achieved, it would make a partial recovery of what mankind had lost with the Fall. Historia Vitae & Mortis contains a collection of materials that are subjected to the scientific method of induction. It is made up of a series of essays devoted to all aspects of the maintenance and prolongation of life, including medicines and herbs, food and drink, sleep and exercise, temperature and climate, occupations, baths and hygiene. In this book, Bacon recommends life in caves and on mountains and suggest that frequent blood-letting may help to renew the body fluids. Contemporary vellum with smooth spine. Lovely contemporary hand-lettered title on spine ("F. Baron historia vitæ et mortis ?"). Some light soiling to exterior and slight wear to three of the four corners but overall quite lovely.

Eighteenth-century dark green morocco, smooth spine, double gilt rules, gilt lettered direct, gilt floral tool at head and tail, sides with double gilt rules, pink silk endpapers, gilt edges. With engraved title and 50 copper-plates by Lasne, Briot, Robel, Mathews and Crispijn van de Passe only, each with tissue overlay; without the text. With a few stamps on the verso of the plates of the Lamoignon library, established in the 17th century by Guillaume de Lamoignon (1617-1677); circular bookplate of Sir Henry Hope Edwards (1829-1900) to front pastedown; leather library label of Robert Hoe (1839-1909) on front free endpaper verso; facing armorial bookplate of C. L. F. Robinson (1874-1916), $40 at his sale in 1917. Joints a little worn and starting at head and tail. A fine volume with the suite of engravings from the first Thiboust edition of the popular ancient Greek romance, the Aethiopica of Heliodorus of Emesa. Jacques Amyot's translation of Heliodorus, first published in 1547, introduced the work to France, where it long retained its popularity. The iconography of the Aethiopica is of considerable interest. The plot turns on the circumstance that a black woman, the Ethiopian queen Persinna, had borne a white daughter, Chariclea, because she had been gazing at a painting of Andromeda at the time of Chariclea's conception.

[121]f + 768p; 179 + [1 blank]p. Text in 2 columns. Woodcut arms of Spain on titles; first title in red and black. Contemporary limp vellum, marbled edges; worn. Early impressions of the author's Spanish version of his great history of Iberia up to the year 1516, modelled on Livy and Tacitus ('Historiae de rebus hispaniae', first published: Toledo, 1592). This Spanish translation, revised and enlarged from the original Latin, has long been considered a Spanish literary classic. The edition of 1623 served as the basis for the Royal Academy edition of 1780. Juan de Mariana (1535-1624), a Jesuit since 1554, studied at Alcala, taught theology in Rome, Paris, and Palermo, and devoted his later years to historical studies in Toledo. Volume I comprises a detailed account of the gradual reconquest of Spain from the Arabs, and includes chapters on Raymund Lull (pp722-24), and the suppression of the Order of the Knights Templar (pp737-40); volume II treats the wars between the Christian successor states, the Aragonese conquest of Naples, and the fall of Granada (pp493-98); it includes chapters on the expulsion of the Jews from Spain in 1488 (pp498-501), the discovery of America (pp502-6), and the Portuguese navigations and conquest of the East Indies by Vasco da Gama (pp528-37).

N/a
London - Typis Gregorij Hnlin, 1623. A scarce edition of this chronicle of the Benedictine monks of the ScheyernAbbey (Kloster-Scheyern) in Germany. Scheyern Abbey, formerly also Scheyern Priory (Kloster Scheyern) is a house of the Benedictine Order in Scheyern in Bavaria. The monastery at Scheyern was established in 1119 as the final site of the community originally founded in around 1077 at Bayrischzell by Countess Haziga of Aragon, wife of Otto II, Count of Scheyern, the ancestors of the Wittelsbachs. The first monks were from Hirsau Abbey, of which the new monastery was a priory, founded as it was against the background of the Investiture Controversy and the Hirsau Reforms. The original site proved unsuitable for a number of reasons, including difficulties with water supply, and the monastery moved in 1087 to Fischbachau. When that site too proved unsuitable, they moved to Petersberg, in 1104. In Latin. The dedication is to the Holy Cross and the Assumption of the Virgin Mary: the abbey has had in its possession since 1180 a relic of the Holy Cross from Jerusalem, and is still today a place of pilgrimage for this reason. By the 13th century the abbey had already gained a reputation for its school of illumination and its scriptorium. Including decorative title page. With monastic bookplate to front pastedown. Condition: In a vellum binding. Externally worn, with dampstaining to the boards and slight loss in places. Backstrip lifting. Internally, firmly bound.

Francisci Baconi (Francis Bacon)
Two of Bacon's most famous works bound together in contempory vellum and replacement endpapers of heavy brown paper. Both works published by Ioannis Maire, a famous and influential scholar, publisher, printer and bookseller in Leiden. Historia vitae et mortis (first published in 1623) was the second of Bacon's proposed six natural histories. He only completed two. The first was Historia ventorum (1622). De sapientia veterum (first published in 1609) is a collection of thirty-one myths and fables from antiquity, together with Bacon?s interpretation of them. The work is both literary and philosophical. Both thought to be Maire first editions: Historia vitae et morti, 1637, 476 pp.; De sapientia veterum, 1633, 200 pp. Very few copies are known to exist of these small "pocket" editions. Rare, scarce.

NAPIER, John/LOCATELLO, Marco, tr
Verona: Angelo Tamo, 1623. * Macdonald p. 134; not in Riccardi or Piantanida; Norman 1574 (1617); in the absence of a good published collation for the plates, the copy has been compared to the Columbia Copy (Plimpton Collection). With thanks to Ms. Jennifer Lee for confirming the correct number of plates.. Rare first Italian edition (first 1617) of the first description and explanation of the use of “Napier’s Bones,” an automatic calculating device of interest for the history of computing, designed by the inventor of the logarithm. The work contains notes and additions by the translator, and the original illustrations of the 1617 are altered and augmented. The work seems to have been known by Galileo: in the National Edition, there are three letters by the mathematician Bonaventura Cavalieri to Galileo discussing Napier, and asking for his opinion (vols. xiii.62; xiv.58, 89; xvii.145). “In 1617 Napier’s intense concern for the practicalities of computation led him to publish another book, the Rabdologiae, which contains a number of elementary calculating devices, including the rods known as ‘Napier’s bones.’ These rods, which in essence constitute a mechanical multiplication table, had a considerable vogue for many years after his death. Each rod is engraved with a table of multiples of a particular digit, the tens and units being separated by an oblique stroke.”

Seltene, noch frühe Ausgabe des erstmals 1610 erschienenen und zuletzt 1666 aufgelegten Handbuchs. - Der thüringische Komponist, Musiktheoretiker und Astronom Sethus Calvisius (Seth Kallwitz, 1556-1617), Sohn eines Tagelöhners, genoß in Magdeburg eine humanistische Schulbildung und wurde 1582 Kantor der Fürstenschule Pforta, wo er 12 Jahr lang wirkte und "den besonderen musikalischen Ruf dieser Anstalt begründet[e]" (MGG 2, 675). "Er hielt viel auf die Astrologie, und wolte durch den Calculum astronomicum gefunden haben, daß ihm Anno 1602 an einem gewissen Tage ein groß Unglück begegenen würde. Ob er sich nun gleich an solchem Tage ungemein in acht nahm, so soll ihm doch ein Zufall begegenet seyn, dadurch er ein hinckend Bein bekommen" (Jöcher). Die "schwere Knieverletzung, als deren Folge er zeitlebens 'claudicans' blieb, [fesselte] ihn über ein Jahr ans Bett" (MGG), schuf ihm aber auch die Muße für schriftstellerische Arbeiten. Sein vorliegendes Spätwerk ist ein nach Sachgruppen geordnetes deutsch-lateinisches Synonymenlexikon in der Art eines Dornseiff, Roget oder Textor'schen Thesaurus.

Gerard Mercator (1512-1594) / Jodocus Hondius (1563-1612)
Gerard Mercator (1512-1594) / Jodocus Hondius (1563-1612) “Orbis Terrae Compiosa Descriptio” From Atlas Amsterdam: c. 1623-1630 Hand-colored copperplate engraving 18” x 22 ½”; 29 1/2” x 33 1/2” framed For nearly sixty years, during the most important and exciting period in the story of modern mapmaking, Gerard Mercator was the supreme cartographer, his name, second only to Ptolemy, synonymous with forms of map projection still in use today. His influence transformed land surveying and his research and calculations lead him to break away from Ptolemy’s conception of the size and outline of the continents, developing a projection that drastically reduced the longitudinal length of Europe and Asia and altered the shape of the Old World as visualized in the early 16th century. Although not the inventor of this type of projection, Mercator was the first to apply it to navigational charts in such a form that compass bearing could be plotted on charts in straight lines, thereby providing seamen with a solution to an age-old problem of navigation at sea. Mercator’s innovations, including the aptly named Mercator projection, continue to be employed in maps produced today, 400 years later. The geographer died in 1594 after publishing just a few parts of the atlas that he had spent decades preparing. In 1604, after the death of Gerard’s son Rumold, the plates for his maps were sold to the great Amsterdam cartographer, Jodocus Hondius, who brought out the first of the so-called “Mercator-Hondius” editions in 1606. Hondius supplemented the original 107 maps with 39 new maps compiled und … [Click Below for Full Description]

VALLET, Pierre (ca 1575-1657).
Paris: Pierre Mariette, 1623., 1623. Folio (13 1/4 x 9 inches): etched architectural title-page with figures of Clusius and de L'Obel flanking a view of a formal garden with glass-houses beyond, engraved portrait of Vallet (lacks portrait of Robin) and 90 etched and engraved plates (upper right blank corner of most plates with discreet early repair). 19th-century vellum with gilt lettered red morocco lettering-piece on the spine. SECOND EDITION, WITH 17 ADDITIONAL ENGRAVED PLATES. According to Blunt this is the first important florilegium and "a work of great beauty." At the beginning of the 17th century Marie de' Medici's great passion for flowers and plants set the fashion for floral themes at the French court. Le Jardin du Roi is Pierre Vallet's hommage to the queen, executed in part to provide patterns for embroideries, and in part to document some of the exotic species bought back from Spain and the islands off the coast of Guinea by Jean Robin the younger. Vallet, born in Orlains about 1575, moved to Paris where he worked as an engraver. He was appointed to the court of Henri IV as brodeur ordinaire de Sa Majestee and, later, vallet de chambre du roy. As engraver he produced illustrations for Touffe de Fleurs (1601), Aventures amoureuses de Thaeagaene et Chariclée (1613), and La Symbole de Nices (1642). In Paris he met Jean Robin, who directed the Royal Gardens of the Louvre for Henri III, Henri IV and Louis XIII. Tournefort refers to Robin as the most celebrated botanist of his time and Linnaeus named the locust tree (Robinia) after him. Vallet and Robin collaborated … [Click Below for Full Description]

Notitia dignitatum utriusque imperii est un manuscrit latin illustré écrit au Ve siècle et qui est une référence essentielle pour connaître la constitution de l'empire romano-grec de cette époque. C'est un tableau du territoire que comprenait alors l'empire, et des emplois civils et militaires dont se composait son administration. C'est dans cet ouvrage que l'on découvre des informations importantes sur le maillage des manufactures (les boucliers sont fabriqués essentiellement à Crémone, les armures à Mantoue, les épées, les haches et des lances à Vérone.), sur les costumes, notamment de l'empereur, sur la topographie et la géographie des peuples, les distinctions et les emplois, les cérémonies, les armes et machines de guerre, les symboles et les insignes, Rome, Constantinople, l'Afrique, Chypre, etc. Rares sont les ouvrages d'une telle richesse archéologique.
