        Of the State of Europe. XIIII.Bookes, containing the Historie, and relation of the many provinces hereof

      Oxford: Henry Cripps, 1627 An extremely rare and interesting account of European states as they were in 1627. In new full leather binding with raised bands and gilt titles to spine. It is missing some preliminaries including probably the main title page. The title page remaining has had a paper repair and has been much written on over the centuries. There is a clear signature from 1859 but all others have been crossed out. The preface is a dedication from the author to the Bishop of Lincoln. The text is then divided into the 14 books each paginated separately. Books I to III cover England and Wales; Book IIII covers Scotland; V - VII Spain; VIII - X France; XI - XIIII (part) - Germany; and the remainder of XIIII covers Switzerland, Netherland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Poland, Hungary, Croatia and and Dalmatia. Each book has a woodcut header and a woodcut decoration to the intial letter. There is also woodcut decoration to the ends of sections. The contents are generally clean and bright, although there is some browning to the edge of pages (Book I is particularly affected by this) and occasional spotting. There are occasional old notes in ink.

Innen stellenweise finger- oder stockfleckig, teilweise etwas wasserändig, einge Marginalien von alte Hand. Haller IV, 443. - Lonchamp 1801. - Erste Ausgabe. - 1631 erschien ein Anhang mit Nachträgen bis 1630. Die Chronik, beginnend mit der Beschreibung des Burgundischen Reiches und der Gründung von Bern, behandelt hauptsächlich das 16. Jahrhundert, v.a. die Schweizer Reformationsgeschichte und ist "ungeachtet ihres allgemeinen Titels vorzüglich eine Berner Chronik" (Haller). Stettler, Michael (1580 Bern- 1642), Ausbildung zum Notar in Genf oder Lausanne. 1605 Chor- und Ehegerichtsschreiber in Bern, 1606 Mitglied des Gr. Rats, 1610 Deutschseckelmeister, 1616-22 Landvogt von Oron und 1627-29 von St. Johannsen, 1629-42 Oberlehenskommissär der sog. welschen Lande. Ohne grosse Begabung verfasste S. als junger Mann Lobgedichte und u.a. ein Drama in 33 Akten ("Vom Ursprung löbl. Eidsgenossenschaft" 1605). Dann wandte er sich der Historiografie zu, sammelte Stoff, indem er Akten abschrieb, namentlich aber die noch ungedruckten früheren Chronisten Berns. 1614 übergab er dem Rat eine dreibändige, die Zeit von 1526 bis 1610 abdeckende Geschichte der Stadt, die er überarbeitete und zu einem zehnbändigen Werk erweiterte. Auf Wunsch der Burgerschaft wurde 1626 eine zweibändige Geschichte publiziert, die 1631 um einen Anhang erweitert und von der Obrigkeit zensuriert unter dem Titel "Schweitzer-Chronic" erschien. Das Werk ist von einem starken Glauben an den "allregierenden Gott" geprägt, der jedes Geschehen leitet und im Diesseits und Jenseits das Gericht vollzieht. Der Autor mass der Geschichte einen hohen Wert bei, denn aus ihr könnten die Regierenden Verhaltensmassregeln für die Gegenwart ableiten und Richtlinien für die Zukunft gewinnen. Die Aristokratie stellte für S. den goldenen Mittelweg zwischen Monarchie und Demokratie dar.(HLS, Edgar Bonjour).

        Tabulae Rudolphinae, quibus astronomicae scientiae temporum longinquitate collapsae restauratio Continetur

      Ulm: Jonas Saur, 1627. 2 parts in one volume. Folio(13 2/8 x 9 inches). Roman and italic types, double column, printed shoulder notes (without sectional title-page to part 2 and "Sportula genethliacis") (occasional spotting). Engraved allegorical frontispiece of the Temple of Urania with astronomers, by George Celer after Kepler, LARGE ENGRAVED FOLDING MAP OF THE WORLD (27 x 15 2/8 inches to the neat line) (supplied), a few woodcut text diagrams, including a full-page of diagrams on k3v, woodcut initials. Eighteenth-century vellum (some worming). Provenance: Contemporary scholarly marginalia throughout (occasionally close-cropped affecting the text). First edition, second issue INCLUDING THE CELEBRATED WORLD-MAP "Nova orbis terrarum delineation", which was "conceived by the German cartographer Philip Eckebrecht at the request of his friend Johann Kepler" (Shirley), to be used with his "Tabulae Rudolphinae", engraved at Nuremberg by J.P. Walch and dated 1630 (but perhaps issued later). On his deathbed in 1601, Tycho Brahe urged Kepler to complete his long-projected astronomical tables, to be based on Tycho's mass of astronomical observations and named after their patron Rudolph II. As Brahe's successor in the post of imperial mathematician, Kepler's principal task was the preparation of these improved astronomical tables. He worked on them for years, with frequent interruptions. "In his own eyes Kepler was a speculative physicist and cosmologist; to his imperial employers he was a mathematician charged with completing Tycho's planetary tables. He spent most of his working years with this task hanging as a burden as well as a challenge; ultimately it provided the chief vehicle for the recognition of his astronomical accomplishments" (DSB). When the work was finally ready for the press in 1624, there were further delays, not least the arrival of the Counter-Reformation in Linz, where Kepler was living and had planned to have the work printed. The edition was finally printed in Ulm, under Kepler's close supervision, in an edition of 1000 copies. "In excusing the long delay in publication... [Kepler] mentioned in the preface [page 6] not only the difficulties of obtaining his salary and of the wartime conditions but also 'the novelty of my discoveries and the unexpected transfer of the whole of astronomy from fictitious circles to natural causes, which were most profound to investigate, difficult to explain, and diffiult to calculate, since mine was the first attempt'" (DSB). The greatly improved accuracy of Kepler's tables over previous planetary tables was due not only to his adherence to the Copernican system and his discovery of the laws of planetary motion, but also to the "happy calamity," as he put it, of his initiation into logarithms, through the intermediary of a small book by Benjamin Ursinus (the "Cursus mathematici practice", Cologne 1618) which reproduced Napier's tables of logarithms. Kepler created his own logarithmic tables (published in 1624), and used them for the complex calculations required to determine planetary orbits. The superiority of his tables "constituted a strong endorsement of the Copernican system, and insured the tables' dominance in the field of astronomy throughout the seventeenth century" (Norman).

A fine, well preserved copy (4), (456), (4) pp. Having 84 large woodcut-illustrations in the text (each ab. 1/3 page large), showing apparatus and equipment for chemistry, mining, fireworks, metallurgy etc.. Fourth French edition of this much-quoted work, mainly dealing with metallurgy (as the title in 16th-century Italian meant metallurgy) and all sorts of combustible materials, including fireworks e.g.: chapter IX, The Manner of compounding various incendiary compositions which are commonly called fireworks, chapter X, Methods of preparing fireworks called Girondoles, which were once customarily used in some Tuscan cities for magnificent displays for public Festivities on Solomon Feast Days. "Biringuccio's reputation derives from a single work, his Pirotechnica, published in 1540...As the first comprehensive account of the fire-using arts to be printed, the Pirotechnica is a prime source of many practical aspects of inorganic chemistry. Biringuccio emphasizes the adaptation of minerals and metals to use - their alloying, working, and especially the art of casting, of which he writes in great detail. The Pirotechnia contains eighty three woodcuts, the most useful being those depicting furnaces for distillation, bellows, mechanisms, and devices for boring cannon and drawing wire." (DBS II:142). - Chris Philip. A Bibliography of Firework Books. B 110
