      London: Printed by Adam Islip, 1624. Folio (30.2 cm; 11.875"). [10], 466, [2] pp. Lacks preliminary blank (only). Early encyclopedia of women's biography and history covering over 3000 mythical and actual figures, with an engraved title-page depicting the nine muses, each holding an object appropriate to her attribute, as well as Apollo holding a sun and harp. Heywood (ca. 1573–1641), a prominent poet and playwright, here ends almost a decade publication-free with a "volume celebrat[ing] strong women throughout history, from mythological goddesses to earthly leaders such as Queen Elizabeth and Queen Anne" (DNB).    Each book revolves around the themes appropriate to its sovereign muse to cover, in the end, almost any topic imaginable, from mythological women's effects on the functioning of the universe to the expectations and proper execution of marital duties to the finer points of witchcraft, among others, using a mixture of prose and verse and lots of wonderful epithets. Numerous women, both virtuous and wicked, are also individually discussed, from Greek mythology to the present day.         ESTC S119701; STC (2nd ed.), 13326. 18th-century speckled calf, highly polished covers nicely panelled in blind with well-proportioned rules and rolls, board edges ruled in gilt; rebacked with modern black leather gilt spine label, new endpapers, and preliminary blank (only) lacking.

Later calf with 5 raised bands and applied leather labels in compartments [x], 466 pp. Lacking blanks A1, A2 and 2R6. Title within illustrated pictorial engraved border; woodcut head-and tail-pieces.

Engraved title with portraits of the nine muses, woodcut head- and tailpieces Appears to lack original blanks or endpapers. With this work Thomas Heywood ended a long literary silence, probably due to a poor financial situation, as suggested in the dedication to his former patron, the Earl of Worcester. The title page is engraved; first word of title in Greek characters. Several additional printers' woodcut engraved devices throughout typically at top of chapter or section pages. Roughly interpreting the table on Contents, we see these nine books as follows: 1st: Concerning Celelestial, Terrestrial, Marine and Infernal Goddesses. 2nd: Concerning the Muses, Sybils, Vestals, Prophetesses, Hesperides, The Graces, etc. 3rd: Concerning Illustrious Queens, Famous Wives, Mothers, Daughters, etc. 4th: Concerning Women Incestuous, Adultereresses, and Such As Have Come by Strange Deaths; 5th: Concerning Amazons, and Other Women, Famous Either For Valour of Beautie. 6th: Concerning Chaste and Wonton Women. 7th: Concerning Pietie of Daughters, Mothers, Sisters and Wivews. 8th: Concerning Women Evrry Way Learned: Of Poetresses and Witches. 9th: Concerning Women in General, With The Punishments of the Vitious, and Rewards Due to the Vertuous; Interlaced with Sundry Histories.

        Il martirio di San Bartolomeo

      1624 - Acquaforte e bulino, 1624, firmato e datato in lastra in basso. Esemplare nel probabile secondo stato. Meravigliosa prova, ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana "cerchio con monti e gallo", rifilata alla linea marginale, in ottimo stato di conservazione. La scena rappresenta il martirio a cui fu sottoposto San Bartolomeo, in Armenia. Secondo i fatti narrati da Abdia Babilonico, avendo Bartolomeo convertito alla fede cristiana il re Polimio e la sua sposa, l’invidia dei sacerdoti locali fu tale che incitando Astiage, fratello del re, fu decretato per lui il raccapricciante martirio di essere scorticato vivo dalla testa ai piedi, per essersi rifiutato di adorare le divinità pagane. Ne La leggenda aurea di Jacopo da Varagine, si narra anche che durante il tentativo di conversione, una delle statue raffiguranti queste divinità, Baldach, cadde al suolo frantumandosi. Nell’incisione è raffigurata nell’angolo inferiore sinistro. In questa incisione, il santo è rappresentato secondo l’iconografia più diffusa nel ‘600: il santo, legato ad un albero, viene scorticato, mentre sulla destra si nota una folla accorsa. L’opera è dedicata a Emanuele Filiberto di Savoia (1588 – 1624), nipote di Filippo III re di Spagna e vicerè di Sicilia nel 1620, da cui Ribera sperava di ottenere un appoggio, che però morì proprio nel 1624. Il martirio di San Bartolomeo, con varianti rispetto all’incisione, era stato dipinto su tela qualche anno prima, durante la prima fase del soggiorno napoletano dell’artista, tra il 1616 e il 1620, poi tradotta in incisione nel 1624 e ancora, tra il 1628-30, rappresentato, con altre varianti, in un altro dipinto oggi nella Galleria Palatina di Palazzo Pitti. Il soggetto si iscrive nella serie dedicata ai santi martiri che Ribera eseguì tra il 1620 e il 1635. Etching with engraving, signed and dated at lower center. Example of the second state. A magnific impression, rich in tone, printed on contemporary laid paper with "circle with mounts and cock" watermark, trimmed to the borderline, very good conditions. The scene depicts the martyrdom to which he was subjected St. Bartholomew in Armenia. According to the facts narrated by Obadiah Babylonian , having Bartholomew converted to the Christian faith Polimio the king and his bride , the envy of local priests was such that inciting Astyages , the king's brother , was decreed to him the gruesome martyrdom by being flayed alive head to foot, for refusing to worship the pagan gods. In The Golden Legend by Jacobus de Varagine, it is said that during the conversion attempt , one of the statues of these deities, Baldach , fell to the ground and shattered. In etching is shown in the lower left. In this engraving , the saint is represented according to the iconography more widespread in the '600: tied to a tree, is flayed, while on the right there is a crowd gathered . The work is dedicated to Emanuele Filiberto of Savoy (1588 - 1624), grandson of Philip III, King of Spain and Viceroy of Sicily in 1620, from which he hoped to obtain support Ribera, who died right in 1624. The Martyrdom of St. Bartholomew, with variations on the incision had been painted on canvas a few years before, during the first phase of the artist's stay in Naples , between 1616 and 1620, then translated into engraving in 1624 and again between the 1628-30 represented , with other variants, in another painting today in the Galleria Palatina in Palazzo Pitti. The subject fits into the series dedicated to the martyrs who Ribera executed between 1620 and 1635 . Great impression. Bartsch, XX, 6; Salamon, Jusepe de Ribera lo Spagnoletto, n. 14.

        Exceedingly Scarce First Edition by Willebrord Snellius - "Tiphys Batavus" - Navigation by Rhumb Line Course

      SNELLIUS, Willebrord 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. 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' 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' 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.

Three volumes, 4to, contemporary flexible vellum, (8), 142, (2), 130, (2), 126, (6) pp. + (2), 143, (1), 143, (1 blank), 130, (22) pp. + (12), 216, (8) pp. The first part is known in two different issues, our copy combines the two issues. On the front fly-leaf of the third volume is a full-page drawing showing an emblem with the initial PLC. Some browning, light dampstains, the front cover of a volume has slightly shrank, otherwise a very good, genuine copy. RARE FIRST EDITIONS. Bronzini was made cardinal by Pope Paul V in 1615. He then moved to Florence, where he conceived the idea of writing an ambitious work in praise of women. Della dignità et nobiltà delle donne should have originally comprised 24 parts (4 weeks of 6 days each), but the project was never completed. The first six days of the first week were written in 1618 and published between 1622 and 1625, while the first two days of the second week were printed respectively in 1628 and in 1632. Although already approved by the ecclesiastical authorities, the first book was condemned in 1622 "donec corrigatur" (cf. Index libror. prohib., Rome, 1664, p. 38). It is presumable that the condemnation refers to a previous edition, now lost, or that the edition was corrected while still under the presses. The work is written in the form of a dialogue. The scene is set in the Medici's garden in Rome during a hot summer. The interlocutors are six: three women, outstanding for their beauty, virtue and nobility (Margherita from Rome, Vittoria from Mantua, Leonora from Florence) and three men (the Prince of Tuscany, Tolomei from Ferrara, an opponent of women, Onorio, i.e. the author himself as defender of women) (cf. Dizionario Biografico degli Italiani, XIV, 1972, pp. 463-64, M. Capucci). All parts of Bronzini's work are very rare. We are able to offer here the first three volumes. The fourth one, Della virtù e valore delle donne illustri dialogo di Christofano Bronzini d'Ancona. Diviso in quattro settimane, e ciascheduna di esse in sei giornate. settimana seconda, giornata settima, was issued in 1632 by Zanobi Pignoni.

(Ferguson) "The "Basilica chymica" became the standard scientific work of iatrochemistry. ... In sharp contrast with Paracelsus' vagueness, Crollius describes in detail the individual preparations, their composition, and their application.

        Viridarium chymicum figuris cupro incisis adornatum, et poeticis picturis illustratum....

      Franckfurt, Luca Jennis, 1624. ____ Première édition. C'est un des plus beaux livres d'emblèmes alchimiques et aussi l'un des plus rares. On n'en connait que quelques exemplaires complets. Il est illustré par un titre gravé et 107 très belles planches. Chaque planche, qui porte un emblème gravé, est accompagnée d'un feuillet d'explication. Beaucoup de celles-ci sont copiées ou inspirées d'ouvrages parus précédemment (Basile Valentin, Michael Maier, Mylius...) Cette illustration est d'une grande beauté artistique. L'ouvrage est d'après Duveen, le plus rare des tous les ouvrages d'alchimie, à l'exception, peut-être, de l' 'Amphitheatrum' de Khunrath, de 1595. Verginelli, Bibliotheca Hermetica 313. Un dos en veau a été rapporté au XVIIIe siècle sur la reliure en vélin. *-------* First edition. This is the rarest and most richly illustrated emblem book of alchemy. It illustrated by one frontispice and 107 engraved plates, with for each an accompanying leave of epigrams. Duveen had a copy, incomplete of one plate and 2 leaves of text. He states: "One or the two or three most important emblem books in the history of alchemy, and also, with the exception perhaps of Khunrath's Amphitheatrum, 1595, the rarest." "A young student of medecine, who had set forth from his native Bohemia on foreign travel in order to widen his knowledge, found himself in the summer of 1623 in far-off Oxford, where he wrote the dedication of one of the most remarkable of all alchemical works. His name was Daniel Stolck, Stolcius, or Stolcio, of Stolcenberg. A humble disciple of the great Michael Maier, Count Palatine and learned Doctor, this modest student is an important although forgotten figure in the history of Frankfurt Emblems. Originally a graduate of University of Marburg en 1621, and as an ardent admirer of alchemy and alchemical literature he was naturally drawn to Franckfurt-on-Main in the course of his wanderrings. In this renowed publishing center he called upon the firm of Luca Jennis, and here he was shown a number of alchemical engravings..." Read, Prelude to chemistry 255-278).

        Empresas Militares de Lusitanos

      Lisbon: Pedro Craesbeeck, 1624. Recent vellum over boards, spine gilt.. F. 161 misnumbered 145. Title p. slightly soiled, small hole repaired just touching printed surface, last line of f. 91 verso & f. 94 recto poorly printed, very small wormhole in upper margin of ff. 125-150, small marginal repairs to ff. 28 & 112, 134-187 & 189-223, some occasional slight spotting and staining, very occasional marginalia.. The author, a Portuguese member of the royal household, was born in Lisbon in the sixteenth century; and, though forced to accept the sovereignty of the Spanish King, he very evidently retained his love of his native country and its national heroes. He explained in his preface to the archbishop of Braga, to whom the book is dedicated, that his work is intended to be a more lasting monument to the heroes of his nation than the statues with which the Greeks formerly honoured their great; and to this end, he has written his work in Spanish, so that it might find a wider field of appreciation than if he had written it in Portuguese. Though written with a touch of pride for the exploits of the Lusitanians, the writers attitude towards Portugals enemies is fair and unprejudiced (Maggs, Spanish Books, 245). Palau 56169.

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.
