TACCHINI, Pietro (1838-1905). -
In - 4. Legatura originale in tela marrone, titolo impresso in oro sul piatto superiore. Con 13 tavole litografiche f.t., 3 ripiegate e 8 stampate a colori. (8), 119 pp. Edizione originale di questa non comune relazione. Il primo a calcolare il transito di Venere tra la Terra e il Sole fu Giovanni Keplero nel 1627 e questo raro avvenimento, che si ripete due volte a breve distanza di tempo ma solo ogni 110 anni all?incirca (l?ultimo è del 2012 e il prossimo sarà nel 2117), è sempre stato sfruttato per importanti osservazioni astronomiche. Il passaggio del 1875 non era visibile in Europa, per cui l?Italia organizzò una significativa spedizione scientifica in India diretta dall?astrofisico modenese Tacchini, spedizione che si distinse in particolare per l?utilizzo della nuova tecnica spettroscopica. First edition of a scarce work. The first to calculate the transit of Venus was Kepler in 1627 and this rare event, which happens twice within a few years time but then over a century goes by before it occurs again, has always been used for important astronomical observations. The transit of 1875 was not visible in Europe, therefore a group of Italian scientist led by Tacchini went to India. «The principal aim of this expedition was to make extremely accurate observations of the contacts of the disk of Venus with the limb of the sun by using the spectroscope» (DSB XIII, 232). With 13 lithograph plates, 3 folding, 8 printed in colour. Orig. cloth slightly worn.

Thomas Gataker
London : Printed by John Haviland, 1627-01-01. 2nd. Hardcover. Very Good. 4to. Bound in modern fine leather. Gilt spine. 4 raised bands. Fine binding and cover. Late 18th-century armorial bookplate and signature of Sir Richard Vanden-Bempde-Johnstone, 1st Baronet. Clean, unmarked pages with some toning. STC 11671; ESTC S102918. <br><br>Originally published in 1619, Gataker's landmark work on lotteries, provoked controversy for its alleged advocacy of the gambling and gaming. Using a great number of historical examples from the writers of antiquity and the Bible, he set out to distinguish the lot and casual events from divine lots. It was Gataker's lenience towards lotteries for sport that drew the ire of his contemporaries, especially that of James Balmford. Balmford's argument was the Puritan line that all lots were invoking the power of God, a stance that Gataker himself deplored, that therefore all lotteries were wrong. Gataker has the "distinction of being the first to suggest the employment of random-selection devices as a means of resolving the problem of indifferent choice in public policy situations" (Rescher, Studies in the History of Logic, 2006), a half-century prior to Pascal's scientific treatise on probability and Fermat.

KEPLER, Johannes.
First edition of Kepler's logarithmic tables, the basis of his monumental Rudolphine Tables, constructed by means of his own original method. Of the greatest rarity, especially complete with the correction leaf and the second part, which gives examples of the application of logarithms and details of their construction. Only one other copy of this work has appeared at auction in the past fifty years.<br/><br/> <i>Provenance</i>: The Earls of Macclesfield, Shirburn Castle, with engraved bookplate, shelf-mark on front pastedown, and blind-stamped Macclesfield crest on blank margins of first three leaves. <br/><br/> It was through the use of these tables that Kepler was able to complete his monumental <i>Tabulae Rudolphinae</i> (1627), the superiority of which "constituted a strong endorsement of the Copernican system, and insured the tables' dominance in the field of astronomy throughout the seventeenth century" (Norman). But logarithms played an even more important role in Kepler's astronomical work, since without them he may never have discovered his third law of planetary motion. Kepler discovered this law early in 1618, at the same time that he first had access to tables of logarithms (see below). Moreover, his initial formulation of the third law was (to use modern terminology) in terms of a log-log plot, rather than the more familiar terms of squared periods and cubed distances: "The proportion between the periodic times of any two planets is precisely one and a half times the proportion of the mean distances" (<i>Werke</i> VI, 302). "In a sense, logarithms played a role … [Click Below for Full Description]

[France]: 1627 Single sheet, float mounted and framed (sheet size: 6 5/8 x 4 ½ inches; framed size: 11 ¾ x 9 ½ inches). Extremely fine etching of the Martyrs of Japan, with faint but visible thread lines and a watermark of an anchor, signed and identified within the plate. Provenance: With the collector's mark of Robert Hartshorne (d. 1945) on the verso (Lugt 2215b), his sale, October 1945, Parke-Bernet. First edition, first state (of 2). L. 594. M. 155. A strong impression of Callot's famous depiction of the 26 Christian martyrs of Japan, produced on the occasion of their beatification. The martyrs are displayed on crosses, their sides pierced by a lance. In the foreground on the left is a man on a horse; to the right there are soldiers sitting in the shade.

BLAEU, Willem
c.1627]., [Amsterdam, - Blaeu's rare chart of west Cornwall Engraved chart. Rare chart of west Cornwall from The Lizard to Land End, published in Blaeu's rare pilot 'Zeespiegel Inhoudende Een.'.The 'Zeespeigel' was the second of Blaeu's great pilot guides: the first, 'Het Licht der Zeevaert', was published in various editions and languages between 1608 and 1630. Blaeu's copyright to this work appears to have run out in 1618, and from 1620 Johannes Janssonius was publishing his own counterfeit versions. Blaeu responded to this threat from his rival by publishing the present work in 1623. The new work covered much the same geographical area, i.e. the northern, eastern (the Netherlands to the White Sea) and western (the Netherlands to the Barbary Coast) navigations, however on a much larger scale and with more than twice the number of charts (111 compared to the Zeevaert's 42). Although the new pilot proved hugely successful and would continue to be published for the next 30 years, its practical application aboard ship accounts for its extreme rarity today.

MAYNWARING, Roger
Printed By I.H. For Richard Badger, London 1627 - [2], 33pp, [1], 56pp. Nineteenth-century morocco backed marbled boards. Rubbed, with loss to head of spine and corners. Soiling/spotting to title and final leaf. Original stab-holes to gutter margin. Nineteenth-century institutional blind-stamp to title, A2 and final leaf. Roger Maynwaring (1589/90-1653), bishop of St. Davids. Following a promising academic career at All Souls, Maynwaring, patronage ensured a perpetual curacy at St Katherines Cree, Aldates in the City of London, and other clerical positions in the capital before proceeding BD and DD in 1625. Appointed a royal chaplain in the same year, his loyalty was proven beyond doubt in the wake of protest at Charles I's imposition of forced loans in 1626/7 when he preached two sermons especially supportive of absolute divine right. In promoting the rights of a King above the rule of common or statute law, and advocating absolute obedience to the King's rule in the particular circumstances of forced loans rather than in a general sense, his thought was verging on contemporary political extremism. Charles, in delight at his young chaplain's words, ordered the publication of both - hence the inclusion of 'By His Majesties Special Command' on the title - against the better judgement of Laud. Public and parliamentary reaction ensued: Maynwaring and his works were investigated by a committee on religion in 1628, he was charged in the strongest terms with insulting parliament, fined, imprisoned, disbarred from holding ecclesiastical office, the reprinting of this work banned, … [Click Below for Full Description]

SPEED, JOHN.
No place or date but London [1627] - Hand-coloured copper-engraving, 15 x 20 inches. A fine, strong impression, the centre fold has been strengthened on verso with some minor repairs evident. The colouring, which has some age but is not original, is very attractive. A fine example with English text on verso. John Speed's justly renowned map of the county from the second edition of his great early 17th century atlas of the British Isles. His survey was based on the earlier work of Philip Symonson with the addition of his own embellishments, and separate plans of Canterbury and Rochester. One of the most attractive and decorative maps of Kent. KENT MAPS KENT

RAY, John
The great naturalist John Ray (1627-1704) brought the same documentary and classificatory dedication to his proverb-collecting as he did to his scientific work. He published an earlier version of this collection anonymously in 1670. Benjamin Franklin used many of these maxims without acknowledgement (though in fairness he claimed no originality for them) in Poor Richard's Almanac. The Historical Magazine printed a parallel list, showing the closeness of some of Franklin's borrowings from this second edition of Ray's Proverbs, in its January 1860 issue. 'It is characteristic of Ray's versatile mind that one of his most important books should be entirely unconnected with botany or natural history with which his name is associated' (Keynes). PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: 8vo, [viii], 414, [2] pp., eighteenth-century panelled calf, spine gilt in compartments with red morocco lettering piece, title-page printed in red and black, small portion of fore-margin of B5 torn away with loss of a few letters, tear in DD4 (paper flaw) with minor loss, a fine copy from the Library of the Earls of Macclesfield, with the Sapere Aude armorial bookplate and crests blindstamped to the first four leaves.

This is the counterfeit editon. There are two issues, with the title pages in different settings of type.

In the other variant, his name appears as \"Joam Tavares Mascarenhas\".

BOYLE, Robert.
Fulton 22and pp. 9ff, 110a, and pp. 73-74; cf. DSB I, pp. 377-379. Interesting convolute of these three very rare Latin translations of three major works by Robert Boyle (1627-1691), the best-known English scientist of his day and the greatest experimental scientist of the mid-seventeenth century. Although Boyle's first scientific interest was chemistry, this is the author's first published scientific work - on pneumatics -, the one that established his fame. The work is also known as the Spring and weight of the air. With a translation of A defence of the doctrine touching the spring and weight of the air (first published together with the 2nd edition of the New experiments in London, 1662, in which he developed this last discovery into a quantitative relationship: that volume varies inversely with pressure, rightly called Boyle's law).Book block almost loose. Good copies.

[MANUSCRIPT - DOCTORATE]. STORCH, Josephus.
For the binding: cf. British Library Database (shelfmark Davies875) (similar design). An elaborately decorated manuscript serving as authentication of the granting of a doctorate in law by the University of Padua to Josephus Storch of Merano (Meran) in South Tyrol, son of Franciscus Storch. It survives in its original, richly gold-tooled binding, with the large seal of the University ("SIGILLVM VNIVERSITATIS IVRISTARVM PADVA 1627") attached by a braided cord. Since Padua fell under the authority of the Venetian Republic at this date, the doctorate was awarded under the auspices of the Doge of Venice. It further names various officials of the University as well as professors of Roman law, canon law and criminal law.The binding is slightly rubbed, mainly near the edges, outside the gold tooling. There is a crack in the wax seal, and the originally red cord attaching it has faded to light brown, except the part closed inside the manuscript. In good condition, with the decorations and gold lettering well preserved.

LUCAN
Translation by Thomas May. Two volumes. 24mo. Rebound in half black calf with marbled paper over boards, gilt, compartments. (10pp), 261pp; (8pp), 122pp. All edges gilt. Very good. Tight and quite handsome. Frontispiece (Volume I), Volume II engraved title page, marbled endpapers. Miniscule "Tout Binder" inkstamped on inner flyleaf of each volume. Tight and handsome pair of the fourth enlarged and corrected edition of this 1627 work. A poem by May's friend Ben Johnson ("To my chosen Friend, The learned Translator of Lucan, Thomas May, Esquire") follows the brief biography of Lucan that opens the first volume. Bookplate of noted collector William S. Stone on the front flyleaf of each volume and, more interesting, the bookplate of H. Buxton Forman graces each front pastedown -- likely a printed reproduction of Forman's engraved bookplate, added by Anderson Galleries when they auctioned off Forman's books in April 1920. Forman (1842-1917) was an English bibliographer of Keats and Shelley and antiquarian bookseller who entered the ranks of book collecting infamy when he partnered with notorious collector Thomas J. Wise in creating phony literary pamphlets featuring previously-unknown first appearances of poems by many noted poets of the day, which were then sold for substantial sums; their large-scale fraud wouldn't be widely known until Graham Pollard and John Carter's 1934 "An Enquiry into the Nature of Certain Nineteenth Century Pamphlets" spelled it all out in detail. Forman's bookplate features a profile image of a full-bearded young Forman in his s … [Click Below for Full Description]
