        Teutsche Poemata und Aristarchus Wieder die verathtung Teutscher Sprach, Item Verteutschung Danielis Heinsij Lobgesang Jesu Chisti, und Hymni in Bachum..., 1624

      Bound with the Opitz is another rare book: Musaeus Grammaticus' Deschonen Poeten Lieb-und Lob-gedichte von Hero und Leandern, Aus dem Griechischen in Hochteutsche. Published in Leipzig, Andreas Ohlen, Buchhendlers, 1633. This second volume with one page with an edge trim, not affecting text. 32pp. Both volumes in what I think is a late 17th Century full brown calf binding with gilt ruling to both boards & spine with finely engraved title page. Small loss of leather near to the bottom of front hinge and general age wear but overall still sound and tight. Internally in good condition with some offsetting from text to opposite page, light spotting, browning to pages and light stain to bottom right corner from page 200 onwards, ink contemporary doodles to front free endpaper and ink marks/scribbles to pages 125-6, not affecting text. Worming to bottom left of first seven pages, however the first page of the dedication (mis numbered 233/234 and with edges trimmed) doesn't have worming, which suggests it was, at one time, further back in the book. The last page of dedication has a repaired tear across the page and is still quite legible. Optiz was the head of the so called First Silesian School of Poets and was during his life regarded as the greatest German poet, he may justly claim to have been "The Father of German Poetry". It is said that this book was put together without his knowledge and taken from a manuscript he left in Heidelberg in 1620. [2], [12], 240pp. Complete, collates with the copy at The Yale University Library.

        Manuscript Journal - Primary Source on Navigation By Rhumb Line Course - Text in Latin

      Netherlands, 1624. Title: Tiphys Batavus, sive histiodromice, de navium cursibus, et re navali. [Tiphys Batavus, or Histiodromice, a Ship's Navigational Course, and Naval Matters] Lugduni Batavorum [near Leiden]: ex Officinâ Elzeviriana, 1624. Rare First Edition from the Earls of Macclesfield library. 4to. 227 pages, plus title pages and 3 full page engraved plates. [the body of the work features an 8 page preface, 48 page introductory lecture, 109 page treatise, 62 pages of logarithm charts]. Further in-text woodcut diagrams, data tables and mathematical calculations appear throughout. Text is in Latin. Two ownership signatures to title page, first of Christophorus Plassius and made at Leiden in 1671, secondly of Benjamin von Munchausen dated The Hague 1675 who received the volume from Plassius. Also with the manuscript shelfmark, blind embossment, and 1860 bookplate of the Earls of Macclesfield. Detailed manuscript inscriptions and to front pastedown and rear endpapers, some by Plassius, some by a French shipbuilder. Contemporary sheepskin binding, blindstamp and gilt borders, four raised bands and gilt title to spine. Some splitting at spine with indication of early professional repair, otherwise in very good original condition. Provenance: From the Shirburn Castle library of the Earls of Macclesfield, previously owned by Fellows of the Royal Society Snellius died at the young age of 46, only two years after this work was printed. In 1624 Snel published his lessons on navigation in Tiphys Batavus (Tiphys was the pilot of the Argo). The work is "mainly a study and tabulation of Pedro Nuñez? so called rhumb lines (1537), which Snel called 'loxodromes'. His consideration of a small spherical triangle bounded by a loxodrome, a parallel, and a meridian circle as a plane right triangle foreshadows the differential triangle of Pascal and later mathematicians" (DSB). Willems 224. "Tiphys Batavus" is an important treatise on navigation in which Snellius presents early calculations and hypotheses on sailing according to rhumb lines or loxodromes. It includes several data charts, studies on degree measurement, a description on the use of a compass, and references to the fundamental principles discovered by Pedro Nuñez. His proposed calculations for longitude and latitude are illustrated with a nautical chart showing a ship's voyage in segments. Landings as precise as the small Portuguese island of Faial and the Spanish island Tenerife, and on the far away continents of Africa and America, appear in examples. In navigation, a rhumb line, loxodrome, or spherical helix, is an arc crossing all meridians of longitude at the same angle, i.e. a path with constant bearing as measured relative to true or magnetic north. It was Portuguese mathematician and royal cosmographer Pedro Nunes, in 1537, who discovered and first presented the concept of navigating by a rhumb line course, being the first to explain that the shortest distance to be travelled by a ship between two points on the earth is not a straight line but an arc. Nunes published his findings in "Treatise in Defense of the Marine Chart" which predates Snellius' masterful work "Tiphys Batavus" by only 87 years, and which forms the basis for the latter. Some mathematical development to Nunes' discovery had also been made by in the 1590s by English mathematician and astronomer Thomas Harriot who worked for Sir Walter Raleigh, and in 1594 by English mathematician and geographer Robert Hues who circumnavigated the globe with Thomas Cavendish, and was also connected to Raleigh. On pages 50 to 53 of this work, Snellius mentions Robert Hues as he presents a solution to a long-standing navigational problem which had challenged numerous eminent mathematicians, astronomers and sea captains. Snellius has been credited as being the first to find a solution. Little notable progress or discussion ensued for one hundred years, until Dr. Edmund Halley The Problem: "Given the distance sailed upon a direct course, the difference of Longitude and either the Latitude sailed-from or that come-to; to find the course steered and the other Latitude." In this period, a ship's intended latitude could be accurately established by sightings of the sun or stars. However, as there had not yet been discovered an accurate way of determining longitude, early navigators taking to the seas before the invention of the marine chronometer in the eighteenth century used rhumb line courses on long ocean passages. Employing this method, the ship would sail its course either north or south until the latitude of the destination was reached, and from there proceed east or west along the rhumb line (actually a parallel, which is a special case of the rhumb line), maintaining a constant latitude and recording regular estimates of the distance sailed, until evidence of land was sighted. An authoritative guide in its time, and now an exceedingly scarce primary source account, Snellius' influential mathematical treatise instructs and illustrates early navigators in making pertinent calculations for long ocean voyages. The publisher of this work is also notable, "ex Officinâ Elzeviriana" meaning "From the Factory of Elseveir" and referring to the celebrated Holland publishing house belonging to the Elsevier family. Flourishing in the late sixteenth to the early eighteenth centuries, the Elsevier dynasty of printers existed more than 130 years and came to the forefront of European book-printing in the seventeenth century. Its founder was Lodewijk Elsevier (1546-1617) from Leuven who had studied printing art at famous Christophe Platin in Antwerp. After Lodewijk Elsevier?s death in 1617 the family business was continued by his descendants from whom the most celebrated are: Bonaventura Elsevier (1583-1652), Isaac Elsevier (1596-1651) and Lodewijk Elsevier Jr. (1604-1670). The last of the Elseviers died in 1712 whereupon their firm ceased to exist. They worked in Leiden and Amsterdam and had representative offices in many other European towns. The Elseviers' target audience were learned readers, members of the European "scientists' republic", therefore they were selective in the books they chose to publish, and worked with the most eminent scientists of the time. Scientists and other distinguish writers considered it an honor to be published at the Elseviers' publishing house. The Elsevier printing house was founded at the Leiden University and published at least 3,000 theses, including scientific works by Galileo Galilei, R. Descartes, B. Pascal, J. Locke and others, and fictions by Moliere, F. Rabelais, G. Boccaccio, and others. The substantial manuscript notes made in this volume not only offer perspective into the application of Snellius's navigational teachings in terms of commercial and exploratory seafaring, but also reveal some of the specific individuals of note whose hands it fell into and served. Published in 1624, the first ownership confirmed is that of Christophorus Plassius of Leiden, who signed the title page in 1671. (A rather substantial Plassius ancestry derives from Leiden, suggesting that he may have obtained the volume from his father or an uncle.) The 3 pages of manuscript notes penned in Dutch on the rear endpapers, including two tables, appear to be in the same hand. Plassius makes note of certain pages of Snellius's book, and describes four ways to set a course, with the information at one's disposal (the destination's latitude, longitude etc.) Among other things, his notes also refer to an early pilot book published in 1592 and titled "Thresoor der Zeevaert" (Treasure of Navigation), by Lucas Janszoon Waghenaer, an important Dutch cartographer and one of the founding fathers and most famous members of the North Holland school, which played a major role in the early development of Dutch nautical chart-making. Just below the first, is a second signature, the volume having been given by Plassius to Benjamin von Munchausen, according to his signature and inscription dated The Hague 1675. Munchausen was an attorney at Danzig (now Gdánsk). He is recorded in England in 1673, when he was admitted to the Bodleian Library, and delivered letters from Henry Oldenburg, first Secretary of the Royal Society, to Edward Pococke and Martin Lister. Munchausen became a Fellow of the Royal Society in London in 1684, therefore maintained English connections. It is not known exactly how the volume went from Munchausen to the Shirburn Castle library of the Earls of Macclesfield, although it is quite conceivable that Munchausen gave it to mathematician John Collins (1626-1683) who was also a member of the Royal Society, and who corresponded extensively with leading scientists and mathematicians including Giovanni Alfonso Borelli, Gottfried Leibniz, Isaac Newton, and John Wallis, gathering and sharing new scientific discoveries. Collins corresponded with continental scientists via Oldenburg (cf. DSB) Collins acquired an extraordinary scientific library, including papers of Isaac Newton. The library was acquired by the first Earl of Macclesfield, Lord Chancellor Thomas Parker (1667-1732) who became a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1712. A brief and cryptic inscription to the front endpaper, made in another hand, is dated 22 July (IX. Kal. Aug.) 1692. The volume may have been at an early stage in the hands of a French merchant with Dutch connections. The front pastedown and front endpaper are consumed with detailed shipbuilding notes written in French. Building materials are listed and priced, for a wooden vessel with a keel of seventy-two feet and a height of twenty-five feet. The writer concludes that the prices given are the most that a master carpenter could charge in France, but that one could reasonably negotiate with the carpenter, although one could certainly get a better price in Holland. Willebrord Snellius (Willebrord Snel van Royen, 1580-1626) was a Dutch astronomer and mathematician, most famous for the law of refraction now known as Snell's law. In 1615 he planned and carried into practice a new method of finding the radius of the earth, by determining the distance of one point on its surface from the parallel of latitude of another, by means of triangulation. Snellius was also a distinguished mathematician, producing a new method for calculating pi, the first such improvement since ancient times. He rediscovered the law of refraction in 1621, now named after him. The lunar crater Snellius is also named after him. In addition to the 'Eratosthenes Batavus' (1617), he published 'Cyclometricus, de circuli dimensione' (1621), and 'Tiphys Batavus' (1624). He also edited 'Coeli et siderum in eo errantium observationes Hassiacae' (1618), containing the astronomical observations of Landgrave William IV of Hesse. A work on trigonometry (Doctrina triangulorum) authored by Snellius was published a year after his death. . Very Good.

        Tabula Geographica in qua Regiones Cananaeae, et Locorum Situs Prout ea Tempore Christi, et Apostolorum Suerunt de Integro Describuntur, ac Suis Limitibus Distinguntur

      Amsterdam : D. R. M. Mathes, 1624. unbound. Map. Copper engraving. Image measures 11.5 x 19.5". This superb 1624 map by Petrus Plancius depicts the region if Israel, Palestine or the Holy Land extending from Tripoli south to Egypt. Oriented with north to the left, the map is beautifully detailed and identifies rivers, cities, regions, lakes, and political divisions during the time of Christ. The Dead Sea is included. One of the most ornate maps engraved by Baptista van Doetichum, this 2nd state replaces 'Petro Plancio' and 'Petrum Plantium' with D. R. M. Mathes. The whole is surrounded by 15 beautiful vignettes that depict various scenes of the Apostles.<br><br>This is one of a series of six magnificent and rare Bible maps of the Holy Land, each surrounded by finely engraved vignettes of biblical scenes. These scenes were printed only in a few editions of the Planicius Bible, first issued in 1590 in Amsterdam by Laurens Jacobzon. The map is in good condition with minor wear along the original centerfold and minor foxing. <br><br>Petrus Plancius (1552 - 1622) was Flemish astronomer, cartographer and clergyman from West Flanders. After he moved to Amsterdam in 1585 and found himself in the center of European mapmaking, when he became a geographer and cartographer. He was appointed the chief mapmaker to the Dutch East India Company. Although he did not issue any atlases, he had a prolific output of over a hundred separate maps. As an important national figure, he obtained many mapmaking monopolies, one of which was a 12 year privilege to be the sole printer of maps using Mercator's projection from 1594 - 1606.<br><br> Baptista van Doetichum (fl. 1588 - 1633) was an engraver from Belgium along with his father Jan van Doetichum the elder. The Doetichum family were renowned craftsmen and were widely respected for their fine engravings of de Jode's 'Speculum' and early maps by Plancius. A wonderful black and white example.

        Les Gymnopodes ou de la nudité des pieds disputée de part & dautre par Me Sebastian Roulliard.

      1624Paris. A lOlivier. 1624. 1 volume in-4, plein vélin dépoque.[IV]-366-[X] pp. Edition originale du curieux traité sur la nudité des pieds, avec portrait-frontispice gravé. Cest loeuvre de Sébastien Roulliard, de Melun, avocat au Parlement, célèbre par ailleurs pour ses ouvrages aux titres bizarres aux sujets parfois minces, mais traités avec beaucoup d'érudition (on lui doit aussi La magnifique doxologie du festu).Selon Pierre Larousse, Il fut composé à l'occasion d'une ordonnance du père Bénigne, général des Cordeliers, qui, en 1621, voulait que tous les Cordeliers se promènent nu-pieds, ordonnance à laquelle ceux-ci s'opposaient. Roulliard soutint les volontés du général dans la première partie, et dans la deuxième, il prétendit que les Cordeliers devaient être chaussés. On ne peut pas se moquer mieux du monde et ce prétendu factum n'est, au fond, qu'une grosse mystification ».Lauteur fait assaut de citations latines, grecques et même hébraïques. Le traité est suivi de pièces de vers latins et français du même auteur.Exemplaire grand de marges, dans son premier vélin.Brunet, IV, 1418. Cioranesco XVIIe, t. III, n°60397.

Besitzvermerk eines Jesuitenkollegs (datiert 1624). Das Porträt des Casserius zeigt ihn im Alter von 39 Jahren. Der erste Teil (De vocis) erschien ein Jahr nach dem zweiten. Casserius (ca. 1562-1616) vergleicht in seiner Anatomie die Laut- und Hörorgane von Mensch mit denen von Pferden, Schweinen, Ochsen, Hunden, Mäusen, Katzen, sogar mit denen von Fröschen und Insekten. Es ist seine erste Veröffentlichung, bevor er sich der Anatomie der Sinnesorgane widmete (Pentaesthesion. Venedig 1609). Casserius genoß schon früh so viel Anerkennung und Ruhm, dass ihm die Universitäten von Parma und Turin einen Lehrstuhl anboten, den er jedoch ablehnte. Eine Kontroverse mit Girolamo Fabrizzio brachte mit sich, dass er dessen Lehrstuhl für Chirurgie und Anatomie in Padua, davor von Vesal gehalten, nicht übernehmen konnte. Der Konflikt mit Fabrizzio entstand wahrscheinlich durch dessen Eifersucht auf den genialen Jüngeren, den die Studenten bevorzugten. Der Einfluß Fabrizzios reichte bis weit ins 20. Jahrhundert, so dass die Leistungen des Casserius lange nicht gewürdigt wurden. Garrison/Morton (5. Aufl., #1540): "a masterpiece of book illustration", "most beautiful book ever published on the ear and throad" (die Kupfer sind von dem Schweizer Maler und Stecher Joseph Maurer). Brunet I, 1616: "Le premier volume a été réimp. à Francort, 1662 (...) sous le titre de Nova anatomica ..." Sallander 1809 (unter Casseri).

        A DEFENCE OF THE DOCTRINE PROPOUNDED BY THE SYNODE AT DORT: AGAINST JOHN MURTON AND HIS ASSOCIATES...

      [Leyden: Successors of G. Thorp], 1624. Small quarto. [iv],203pp. Handsome 19th-century three-quarter calf and marbled boards, spine gilt. Modest edge wear. Light occasional foxing, but mostly clean. Very good. A rare work from an early English separatist. John Robinson was the pastor of the "Pilgrim Fathers" at Pieterskerk in Leiden. Together with Robert Browne, he is considered one of the founders of the Congregational Church. In the present work, Robinson sides with the "contra-Remonstrants" in rejecting Armenianism. The Synod, held at Dordrecht in 1618-19, convened to settle the Arminian controversy and set forth the Reformed doctrine on each of five crucial points: "total depravity, unconditional election, limited atonement..., irresistible (or irrevocable) grace, and the perseverance of the saints." The work was published after a small minority of Pilgrims left Holland for America in 1620. OCLC locates just a dozen copies worldwide, and apparently no copies have appeared at auction. Only one copy has appeared in the trade, described as "Very rare" by Quaritch in 1922. A rare, desirable tract from a highly-influential English Separatist theologian. STC 21107a. SABIN 72095.

        Institutiones linguae Arabicae. Ex diversis Arabum monumentis collectae, & ad quammaximam fieri potuit brevitatem, atque oridinem revocatae. Rome, Stefano Paulini, 1624.

      1624. 8vo. (16), 256 pp. Contemp. limp vellum. Traces of ties. Rare, early introduction to and grammar the Arabic language: a compilation based on Arab sources by the Syrian Jesuit Metoscita. "The work again contains laudatory poems in four languages by Donatus. It is dedicated by the publisher Paulinus to Cardinal Francesco Barberini, who as Curator of the Sacra Congregatio had ordered its publication. Paulinus had already recently published two other Arabic grammars in Rome, a large one by Martelotti (1620) and a small one by Scialac (1622). The author, Petrus Al-Matusi, was one of the first pupils of the Maronite College in Rome [...] On p. 227 of the grammar we find one of the first examples of a classical Arabic poem quoted and translated [...] The work is excellently printed with the 16pt Arabic types of Savary de Brèves. At the end a grammatical analysis of Psalm 34 is given following the example of Bellarmino's Hebrew grammar" (Smitskamp). "After the demise of the Medici Oriental Press, Arabic printing in Rome was revived by the French scholar-diplomat François Savary de Brèves, who commissioned the design and production of an Arabic fount of an outstanding elegance and beauty. Much has been written on this type-face, which was evidently based directly on Arab or Turkish specimens of calligraphy acquired by Savary while serving in the Ottoman Empire: the punch-cutting, however, was probably executed in Rome [...] This celebrated type-face, which later passed to the Imprimerie Royale, was the mainstay of Arabic typography in France until the late 19th century [...] It likewise influenced the Arabic founts of the Press od the Sacra Congregatio de Propaganda Fide, which had a monopoly of Arabic printing in Rome from 1622 onwards, and at first employed Paulin, the former associate of both Raimondi and Savary de Brèves" (Roper, p. 144-146). - Slight browning and brownstaining throughout due to paper; 18th or early 19th century marginalia and notes on flyleaves; ownership "J.

        Les oeuvres pharmaceutiques, traduictes, illustrées et mises en lumière par Louis de Serres. Le grand dispensaire medicinal contenant cinq livres des institutions pharmaceutiques. Avec une pharmacopée (boutique pharmaceutique) ou antidotaire fort accompli.

      Lyon, Pierre Rigaud, 1624. Fort in-4, un beau frontispice en taille-douce de Grégoire Huret représentant une boutique d'apothicaire, (11)ff., 982 pp., (9)ff. de table. Nombreuses lettrines. Exmplaire court en marge sup. Petite galerie de vers avec perte de quelques lettres ( p.80 à p.140), pâles mouillures. Vélin à recouvrement pastiche. Dos orné du titre, à l'encre noire. Très bon état. Une mine précieuse de renseignements pour l'histoire de la pharmacie. Jean de Renou était un médecin originaire de Coutances et établi à Paris. Il se spécialisa dans la matière médicale et s'appliqua, à l'aide des lumières de la nouvelle alchimie, à redresser les erreurs des anciens et des Arabes. On voit bien par là et par la manière dont il publie le fameux serment des apothicaires « craignant Dieu » que Jean de Renou appartient à la caste des médecins. Qu'est-ce qu'un médicament ? Le médicament tient le milieu entre l'aliment et le poison. L'ouvrage est consacré aussi à la préparation desdits médicaments (broyage, décoction, brûlage, dissolution, fermentation, liquéfaction, durcissement, dessication, distillation, etc.), aux formes médicamenteuses, succédanés, altérations, etc., donne les formules des remèdes classés suivant la manière dont ils... entrent dans le corps humain. Après avoir longuement étudié la matière médicale, Jean de Renou y décrit la maison, la boutique du pharmacien et le matériel qu'il doit posséder : précieux témoignage. Première édition française traduite par Louis de Serre d'après l'édition Latine de 1608.

      Daems & Vandewiele, Noord- en Zuidned. stedelijke pharmacopeeën, pp. 62-63 (5 copies) & 70-71 (7 copies); STCV 12879911 (5 copies incl. 1 defective) & 12879890 (4 copies, incl. 1 lacking title-page). First (and in the case of Antwerp only) editions, in Latin, of the first and only official pharmacopoeias for Brussels and Antwerp, containing hundreds of medicinal recipes and throwing a great deal of light on 17th-century medical practice in the Low Countries. The Antwerp work's separate part with the title "Selectiora chymica" shows the rising importance of chemistry in the production of medicines. In 1624 the magistrates of Antwerp set up a Collegium Medicum, which did declare that medicines were to be prepared following Cordus until further notice. Brussels had begun to discuss plans to establish a Collegium Medicum already ca. 1605, but failed to do so. A 1636 plague gave city magistrates the impetus to compile a pharmacopoeia, however, and they commissioned four leading city physicians to compile the present Brussels pharmacopoeia, which appeared in 1641. In 1659 the Antwerp Collegium Medicum decided to produce their own official pharmacopoeia.With a 5-line presentation inscription on the flyleaf from the principal compiler of the Antwerp pharmacopoeia, Michiel Boudewijns to St Bernard's Abbey in Hemiksem, south of Antwerp, undated, but clearly between 1661 and Boudewijn's death in 1681. With an occasional correction in an early hand, an inscription at the end of the Brussels work by Godefridus Bouvaert (1685-1770), and the bookplate of Oscar van Schoor (1873-1936) on pastedown. Second work browned with occasional small marginal tears or spots, but otherwise in very good condition. The binding is rubbed, with some mostly superficial cracks in the spine and hinges, but remains structurally sound. Two important pharmacopoeias with a remarkable provenance.

Après quelques démêlés avec les jésuites, il se fit admettre à la cour de Jacques Ier Stuart à Londres, où il se lia avec Pereisc et d'autres personnalités ; puis en 1616 il s'installa à Rome, comme employé à la chancellerie pontificale où il publia un pamphlet contre les protestants. Ne se plaisant pas à Rome, il revint en France et composa son Argenis dont la première édition fut publiée en 1621. Ce roman à clef symbolique, historique, satirique où sont passés en revue les vices et les révolutions des règnes de Henri III et Henri IV, est écrit avec élégance et originalité. Son succès fulgurant (huit éditions en dix ans, traduit dans toutes les langues d'Europe) ne profita pas à son auteur qui mourut deux jours après la mise en vente de son ouvrage en librairie, le 12 août 1621.Absence des gardes, une petite perte au coin inférieur d'une figure, fente en marge de la p.859 restaurée, infime travail de ver aux trois premiers feuillets ; sinon bel exemplaire, bien relié et en bel état malgré un mors supérieur légèrement fendu.

Bernard de la Valette vécut sous Henri II, François II, Charles IX et Henri III, et, dans les temps orageux qui signalèrent le règne de ces deux derniers monarques, il leur resta constamment attaché. Il avait embrassé la carrière des armes, se distingua dans la guerre de Piémont, et obtint en 1583 le gouvernement du Dauphiné. Au passage de l'Isère, aidé par le général Ornano, il défit 400 arquebusiers français et 300 Suisses. Il fut nommé, en 1576, gouverneur de Provence, et soumit, l'année suivante, Valensoles et Digne, deux villes qui s'étaient soustraites à l'obéissance du roi. Blessé au siège de Valensoles, qu'il prit d'assaut, il montra néanmoins sa modération en défendant le pillage, après avoir pardonné à tous les habitants. Il alla ensuite à la rencontre du duc de Savoie qui était entré en Provence, lui fit lever le siège de Barcelonnette, le battit près d'Epernon en 1591, puis à Vinon, et l'obligea à repasser les Alpes dans une entière déroute. Ces succès furent interrompus par une mort précoce : il fut tué d'un coup d'arquebuse au siège de Roquebrune, près de Fréjus, le 11 février 1592 ; il n'avait que 39 ans, et ne laissa pas de postérité. De Thou dit, en parlant de ce général : In periculis imperterritus, in adversis constans, in prosperis moderatus [...]. Sa Vie a été écrite par Mauroy, son secrétaire ; on la trouve dans les Additions au mémoire historique et critique de la vie de Roger de Bellegarde, Paris, 1767, in-12." (Feller, Biographie universelle VIII-p. 253).L'auteur, témoin oculaire, était le secrétaire de Bernard Nogaret de La Valette. Le marquis de Cambis-Velleron, dans ses Additions au mémoire sur Bellegarde de Secousse, considère que cette vie de La Valette "est un monument précieux parce qu'il donne un grand et exact détail de tous les événements du marquisat de Saluces, du Dauphiné, et de la Provence." Hauser précise que "Secousse le trouve bien informé, particulièrement sur les affaires de Saluces."

        ARITHMETICA LOGARITHMICA SIVE LOGARITHMORUM CHILIADES TRIGINTA.

      London: William Jones 1624 - Briggs, Henry. ARITHMETICA LOGARITHMICA SIVE LOGARITHMORUM CHILIADES TRIGINTA. London: William Jones, 1624. Very good in worn contemporary calf. The text is in remarkably nice condition, complete, and without markings, with almost no foxing and just minor traces of dampness, somewhat more so on the few final leaves. The second free endpaper has an ownership inscription dated 1835, and below, an ownership name crossed out in ink. There are 96 pages of Latin text followed by 300 pages (unpaginated) of Briggs&#146; logarithm tables. The preliminary matter consists of the title page, verso blank (with an early ownership monogram, &#147;J:J.&#148;,) a two-page dedication, a two-page note to the reader, and one page of errata, verso blank. The following 88 pages are divided into thirty-two short chapters, with many engraved diagrams, covering topics which range from the initial definition of the logarithm, the reason for the choice of 0 as the logarithm of 1, methods for the computation of logarithms, followed by the use of logarithms in solving various geometric problems, and the final chapter discussing the five Platonic solids. Briggs was one of the two greatest English mathematicians of his day and became the first professor of geometry at Gresham College, London, in 1596 at the time of its founding. He was studying ellipses due to his interested in astronomy and was immediately excited by the first reports of Napier&#146;s development of logarithms because of the short-cuts in tedious computation that they promised. He visited Napier in Scotland and together they discussed ways of improving the calculation of the logarithms and the advantages of establishing 0 as the logarithm of 1. Brigg&#146;s first work on logarithm Logarithmorum Chilias Prima was published in London in 1617 shortly after Napier&#146;s death. His next work, this extensive mathematical treatise, with the table of logarithms of the integers from 1 to 20,000 and from 90,001 to 100,000, computed to 14 decimal places, became widely known throughout Europe and was the primary means for the spread of this powerful computational technique and found still to be serviceable for hundreds of years following its publication. It is astonishing to realize that a book containing over one million hand set numerical digits could have been published early in the 17th century. A number of Briggs&#146; letters survive as do some contemporary references which refer to him as &#147;the mirror of the age for excellent skill in geometry&#148; and &#147;that he was a man of amiable character.&#148; We are indebted to the recent translation of Arithmetica Logarithmica into English, with annotations, by Ian Bruce of the University of Adelaide which is available on the Internet. Bruce points out in his General Note on the Translation that although Briggs&#146; mathematics was profoundly advanced for his time, its presentation can be difficult for the modern reader because &#147;there was a very limited mathematical frame-work for new ideas outside classical Greek geometry&#148; and that algebraic notation was not available to Briggs in the early 1620s so that he was forced into &#147;laboured attempts&#148; to describe his operations with numbers by use of words and with tables of figures. The publication date of this folio is also notable, as it follows by just one year the &#145;First Folio&#146; of Shakespeare&#146;s plays, and, in fact, Briggs&#146;s life (1561-1630) is almost coextensive with Shakespeare&#146;s (1564-1616.) Because of the complexities required in the printing of the logarithm tables, it is very likely that the work of printing this folio would have begun in the year 1623 or even before. Thus the two folios can then be seen as an interesting pairing, representing peaks of both humanistic and mathematical achievement to mark a singular moment of English intellectual history.

L'Achilléide décrit avec une grande justesse de ton l'enfance d'Achille auprès du centaure Chiron, ou parmi les filles de Lycomède, scène qui va inspirer les magnifiques toiles de Rubens, Van Dyck, Nicolas Poussin, Sébastien Le Clerc, Le Primatice, Erasmus Quellinus ou Noël Halle, qui ont probablement eu en mains cette charmante édition.

        IJsgezicht - Hendrick Avercamp.

      Wintergezicht te "Slooten, Ao 1624'. Ets vervaardigd medio 18de-eeuw door Simon Fokke (werkzaam 1722-1784) naar ontwerp van Hendrick Avercamp. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. ca. 12 x 15,5 cm.In Nederland heerst bij vriesweer al eeuwen lang ijskoorts. Jong en oud, arm en rijk houden bij vallende temperaturen grachten, rivieren en meren nauwlettend in de gaten. Deze verbondenheid met het ijs is door niemand mooier verbeeld dan door Hendrick Avercamp (1585-1634). Hij was het die aan het begin van de 17de-eeuw het 'ijsgezicht" tot zelfstandig genre maakte. Als eerste kunstenaar specialiseerde hij zich in het schilderen van winterlandschappen met ijsvermaak. In zijn schouwspelen zijn telkens nieuwe details te ontdekken die veelal te maken hebben met vertier op het ijs.Hier zien we een visser voor een rieten schutting, hij heeft net een gat gehakt om daar zijn net in te laten zakken, een vuurkorf biedt warmte. Een eendenjager met zijn hond komt een praatje maken. Verderop - kluchtig detail - een man die met z"n blote billen boven een gat in het ijs hangt. Op de achtergrond figuren die zich per slee voortbewegen.In Avercamps taferelen schuilt een tijdloosheid die ook nu nog herkenbaar is. Het is daarom dat Avercamps winterlandschappen tegenwoordig tot de belangrijkste, typisch 'Hollandse" voorstellingen uit de 17de-eeuw worden gerekend.Prijs: € 825,-.
