[WIC]. SPRANCKHUYSEN, Dionysius.
[8], 80 pp.Rare first edition of the very important account of Piet Hein's capture of the Spanish Silver Fleet (Zilvervloot) in 1628, one of the most iconic events of the Dutch Golden Age. The pamphlet was published only a few months after the return of Piet Hein in January 1629. The author, Dionysius Spranckhuysen (1587-1650), was a Protestant minister at Delft and friend of his pious co-religionist and fellow townsman Piet Hein who belonged to his religious community. He clearly heard the story of the capture first hand from Piet Hein himself.The account is virtually the only primary source for information on the event, so that it remains the basis for the accounts in today's literature on Piet Hein.But his glory and honour didn't last long. Difficulties with the Director of the WIC arose about payment for himself and his crew. On his next expedition against the Dunkirk privateers he fell, hit by a heavy canonball, on 17 June 1629. The same Spranckhuysen conducted the funeral service and published his oration immediately afterwards: Tranen over den doodt van den grooten Admirael ... Pieter Pietersz. Heyn. Midtsgaders syn testament aen de generale gheoctroyeerde West-Indische Compagnie. Ofte onbedriegh'lijcke leyd-sterre, tot geluckige voyagie van derselver scheeps-vloten (Delft, Andries Jansz. Kloeting, 1629).In our pamphlet the account of the capture of the Silver Fleet (pp. 55-79) is preceded by Spranckhuysen's sermon held on this occasion and an address to the directors of the West India Company in which he urged the directors to spend the profits on the spread of the … [Click Below for Full Description]

Napier, John [Baron Merchiston; Laird of Merchiston]
Leiden: Petrus Rammasenius, 1628. 3rd Edition. THIRD EDITION OF THE INVENTION & DESCRIPTION OF NAPIER'S BONES, THE 1st CALCULATING MACHINES & THE "PRECURSORS OF SEVENTEENTH-CENTURY AND MODERN CALCULATING MACHINES AND COMPUTERS" (Printing and the Mind of Man 116). Napier's invention, essentially a system of rods, offered a mechanical means for facilitating computation. Note that this work "also contains the first printed reference to the decimal point," an act that then made common its usage (Computer History Portal). The first edition was published in 1617, but this, the third edition is considerably more rare. This specific volume was a part of the Tomash collection on the history of computing. John Napier (1550-1617) was born in Scotland into a prominent family of Scottish lairds. At thirteen, he attended St. Andrews University, though there is no record of his having graduated. In addition to running his family estates and actively participating in the Scottish reform movement, Napier worked on his avocation - mathematics, physics, and astronomy. Though he genuinely considered his scientific pursuits "hobbies," Napier is the person responsible for the invention of logarithms. In 1614 and after 25 years of work, Napier published his work on the subject, defining logarithms as a ratio of two distances in a geometric form, as opposed to the current definition of logarithms as exponents. Following the publication of his work on logarithms, Napier sought a way to simplify calculations by some mechanical means. "Looking to ease his own difficulties in calculating logar … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hamburg - Niederelbe
dat. 1628, 31 x 52 "van der Krogt, Koeman's Atlantes Neerlandici Bd. 1, SS 125ff (dort Karte 2070:2.1). Nach dem Tod des Vaters Jodocus H. Sr. 1612 trennten sich alsbald die Wege der Söhne Jodocus Jr. und Henricus. Von beiden ist bekannt, dass sie danach unabhänig voneinander noch Ausgaben des ""Atlas"" mit den Karten von G. Mercator veröffentlichten (die Platten hatte Jodocus Sr. 1604 erworben). Um davon unabhängiger zu werden, plante Jodocus Jr. einen neuen, modernen Atlas mit eigenen Karten, den ""Atlantis Maioris Appendix"" herauszugeben. Dafür wurden 1628/29 nach heutigem Wissensstand 45 Karten gestochen, die Präsentation war für die Frankfurter Herbstmesse 1629 geplant. Unglücklicherweise starb Jodocus Jr. im August 1629 und seine Witwe verkaufte 40 Platten an Willem Janz. Blaeu, der 34 Karten mit seinem Namen versah und sie 1630 in seinen eigenen ""Atlantis Appendix"" integrierte. Van der Krogt kennt nur 6 Exemplare des Atlas mit dem Karten von Jodocus Jr., alle weisen eine unterschiedliche Kollation auf, von dieser Karte sind nur 4 weitere bekannt, daher zweifelsohne eine ausgesprochene Rarität. Klassische gesüdete Karte der Unterelbe zwischen Geesthacht und Cuxhaven/Neuwerk mit Einzeichnung Elbinseln und Sandbänke. Abgesehen von einem unbedeutenden Knick links tadellos."

Geheime Kunstkammer: darin[n]en hundert allerhand Kriegs Stratagemata, auch andere unerhörte Secreta, und Machinae mirabiles zusehen, dergleichen in Europa (respectivè) wening zu finden.Ulm, Jonam Saur, 1628. 4to. Half vellum (ca. 1900). 28 pp. Very rare first and only edition of a catalogue of military and other instruments, models of machines, plans, etc., that Faulhaber displayed in the "Kunstkammer" in his house in Ulm. Johann Faulhaber (1580-1635), taught mathematics at Ulm, where his family moved around 1461, after serving as vassals of the Abbot of Fulda. He became the most important of the "Cossists", mathematicians concerned with algebra. After publishing his first arithmetic text, Faulhaber founded his own school in Ulm in 1600, which grew into an internationally famous educational institute for higher mathematical sciences. He later added an artillery and engineering school. Descartes came to study with him, and Faulhaber had a lively contact with Kepler. Applying mathematics to military engineering, the building of fortifications and the art of fire-arms, Faulhaber was also much in demand as fortification engineer, receiving commissions from the King of Sweden and many others. He published a large number of mathematical works, mostly in German, and invented a number of instruments and machines.Two different readers have checked off items in the catalogue, perhaps indicating those in their own collections.

[RUSSELL, John].
The spy, discovering the danger of Arminian heresie and Spanish trecherie: written by I. R.Strasbourg [=Amsterdam, successors of Giles Thorp], 1628. Small 4to (18.5 x 14 cm). 19th-century half calf. 27 ll. Rare first and only edition of a controversial Puritan satire in verse, probably written by John Russell (d. 1688), but sometimes attributed to John Rhodes, minister of Enborne, and John Robinson (1575-1625). The anti-Catholic poem criticizes Arminianism, based on the teachings of the Dutch theologian Jacobus Arminius (1560-1609), who according to Russell was sent by the pope to trick Protestants. "In the manner of John Donne's Ignatius his Conclave, Russell describes a conclave in Hell which reveals that Arminius was sent as a missionary from Hell to establish popery by the back door while seeming to be a Protestant" (Colclough). Russell links the anti-Calvinist tendencies in England to the influence of Spain and the pope; he praises the anti-Spanish and anti-Catholic preacher Thomas Scott (d. 1626), and laments the loss of the days when England resisted Spain.With the armorial bookplate of the Lord Fairfax of Cameron. With some ink annotations on flyleaf, title-page ruled with (now faint) red ink. The first six leaves with marginal restorations, some foxing. Without the folding frontispiece, included in a small number of copies. In fair condition. D. Colclough, Freedom of speech in early Stuart England, p. 118; ESTC S115559; Sabin 70762.

Cosmographia, das ist: Beschreibung der gantzen Welt, ...Basel, heirs of Sebastian Henricpetri, 1628. Folio (38 x 24.5 cm). With engraved title-page, letterpress title-page printed in red and black with woodcut portrait of Münster on the back, 26 numbered double-page woodcut maps on inserted bifolia, 72 double-page woodcut maps, plans and views on integral leaves, and about 1500 woodcut illustrations in the text (including repeats) showing maps, plans, views, plants, animals, monsters, etc. Contemporary vellum. [24], ?1752? [=1748] , [12] pp. Most extensive edition of Münster's monumental, extensively illustrated description of the world, which set a new standard in the field, following both a regional and encyclopaedic approach. The first edition appeared in 1544, but it was greatly expanded over the years, the present edition adding many new maps. The most highly valued of all cosmographies, it passed through dozens of editions in 100 years and was of paramount importance for the revival of geography in 16th-century Europe. The book was printed by the heirs of Sebastian Henricpetri (1546-1627), the son of Heinrich Petri, stepson of the author Sebastian Münster. The 1588 edition (and the two following editions) contained a total of ca. 1280 woodcuts, which number was increased in the present edition with about 200. From the library of Ericsberg Castle near Katrineholm, Sweden, built for the Swedish statesman Erik Karlsson Gyllenstierna (1602-1657) in the 1650s (two engraved views of the castle, from Dahlberg's Suecia antiqua et hodierna, are loosely inserted); several anno … [Click Below for Full Description]

Erpenius, one of the most distinguished orientalists of his day, published his famous Grammatica Arabica in 1613, followed in 1620 by the Rudimenta linguae Arabicae, a slightly abridged version of the Grammatica. It is dedicated to the Maronites Johannes Hesronita and Gabriel Sionita, the latter of whom would later edit the 1638-edition of the Rudimenta.

Vas nestes a pontamende de mistura as cauzas originaes que tem lancado a perder este Reino, e a India posta no stado que se ve e juntamende vão os meyos, que pode haver para se tirar dinheiro para o soccorro d[']ella.[Lisbon?, 1628?]. Folio. Manuscript document in Portuguese. Disbound. [9], [3 blank] pp. A detailed report, apparently advising the Portuguese government on the dangers of Dutch incursions in Portuguese colonies, especially in Brazil. The report contains 30 numbered articles. Articles 1, 2 and 26 explicitly name Brazil, but many others name "India", which can refer to the Indies (Brazil was regarded as part of the West Indies). During the 12 Years' Truce (1609-1621), the Dutch agreed not to attack Portuguese ships or territories, but in 1621 the Dutch set up the West India Company to attempt to capture a great deal of the lucrative trade in the New World. The capture of Bahia in 1624 proved short-lived, the Portuguese retaking it in 1625, but in 1630 the Dutch captured Pernambuco and much of the surrounding territory, forming a Dutch colony in Brazil that they were to keep until 1654. The present document is undated, but its references to the Dutch "robberies" in Brazil and to the restoration show it dates after the capture and recapture of Bahia in 1624 and 1625, and apparently before the capture of Pernambuco in 1630. Another (shorter) version of the same report (some articles match nearly word for word), published by Da Silva Tullio, is apparently dated 1628, which seems to suit the present version as well.The ink or quill used damaged some of the paper resu … [Click Below for Full Description]

[RODRIGUES GIRÃO, João and Jean VIREAU? (translator)].
Histoire de ce qui s'est passé au royaume du Japon l'annee 1624.Paris, Sebastien Chappelet, 1628. 8vo. With a woodcut Jesuit seal on the title page. Contemporary tanned sheepskin, blind-stamped with a fleur-de-lys. [16], 390 pp. Very rare, first and only edition of a translation into French of the "Annual Letter" for 1624, the annual account of the Jesuit missions in Japan written for their superiors in Rome. Although possibly written by Jesuits in Japan, the text was edited by Rodrigues Girão in Macao. First published in its original Italian as a standalone book in 1628, it was immediately translated into Latin, French, Dutch and German. The letter describes the Great Edo Martyrdom of 1623, when 50 Christians were crucified on the orders of the Shogun. Added to that are lives of the principal martyrs and descriptions of previous persecutions of the Christians in Japan, whose religion had officially been banned in 1614. The book ends with various papal letters of support written to the Christians in Japan, which are present both in their original Latin and in French translation. With a library stamp and a manuscript date on the title-page. Some spots and waterstains in the margins, especially in the first 30 pages and some browning; small tear in the final page and stains on the final endpaper.

With 18 folding engraved plates, 1 engraved illustration in text, numerous woodcut illustrations and geometric figures in text, and some woodcut initials. Contemporary vellum, recased, with new endpapers. [8], 219, [1 blank]; 248, [2] pp. First edition of a work combining two of the best known works of Samuel Marolois (1572-1627): one on geometry and the other on fortification. Marolois was a well-known Dutch engineer and mathematician. His Geometria presents a thorough pictorial course of all aspects of geometry and its application to measurement, proportion, surveying, perspective, etc. It treats specifically the application of geometry to architecture and fortification. His Fortification ou architecture militaire, is richly illustrated and an important source for the Dutch art of fortification at the beginning of the 17th century. The woodcut illustrations in the text show many corners of fortresses with measurements of their angles and various calculations, but also some ground plans and tools for constructing a fortress. The engraved plates show complete ground plans of fortresses; the last plate depicts different types of cannons. Jordan 2389; STCN 082523983 (2 copies); this work not in Jähns; Sloos, Warfare.

HUGO, Herman.
Pia desideria emblematis, elegiis & affectibus SS. patrum illustrata. Antwerp, Hendrick Aertssen, 1628. Small 8vo (12.5 x 8 cm). With letterpress title set in a emblematic woodcut, woodcut coat of arms of Pope Urban VIII, introductory woodcut emblem, 45 woodcut emblems by Christoph van Sichem the Younger after Boetius van Bolswert and 18 white on black oval ornamental woodcut tailpieces. Contemporary vellum. [30], 456, [2] pp. Second edition, in the original Latin, of the most popular spiritual love emblem book ever published, here for the first time with woodcuts by Christoph van Sichem the Younger (ca. 1582-1658), after the beautiful emblematic designs of the great baroque artist Boetius Adamsz. van Bolswert (ca. 1580-1633). Herman Hugo (1588-1629), a Jesuit priest who lived in Antwerp and elsewhere in the southern Low Countries, made the genre popular throughout Europe. It appeared in dozens of editions and heavily influenced the new spiritual movements arising in the 17th and 18th century all over Europe. Though the use of the Latin language would have demanded a fairly well-educated reader, it was still the language of the Catholic Church and the book clearly spoke to the common people.

CONN, George (or CONE; Lat. CONAEUS)
Romae, Typis Vaticanis, 1628. FRIST EDITION. 4to, pp. [12], 176, [8]. Cardinal's coat of arms (Barberini family) printed in red and black to title-page. Woodcut head- and tail-pieces, large floriated initials. Roman letter, some Italic, side-notes printed in Italic. A fresh, clean and crisp copy printed on thick paper; just some very light occasional foxing and spotting, mainly to blank margins. Bound in modern brown sheep, four raised bands and gilt-tooled name of author to spine. Boards framed by blind-tooled single fillets. Slightly worn leather along cover edges, joints, spine caps and bands. Upper margin of front free endpaper restored. A.e.g., an excellent copy. FIRST AND ONLY EDITON of this scarce Vatican press that concern Catholic propaganda addressing Britain. These "Two Books on the State of the Double Religion Among the Scots" were written by George Conn (also known as Conaeus, the Latinised form of his surname; d. 1640), who was a Scotsman from Aberdeen educated at the colleges of Douay and Rome, and the University of Bologna; canon of St. Laurence in Damaso, Rome, and papal agent to Henrietta Maria, wife of King Charles I and queen consort of England. In Rome, Conn became a protegee of Cardinal Francesco Barberini, to whom the book is dedicated. Indeed, the arms of this powerful cardinal and patron of arts and letters, who Conn addressed to as "Protector of Great Britain", appear on the title-page. A woodcut bee, which is the symbol of the Barberini family, closes the text at the colophon. George Conn offers here a study on the history of the Scots as an impor … [Click Below for Full Description]

With engraved title-page, letterpress title-page printed in red and black with woodcut portrait of Münster on the back, 26 numbered double-page woodcut maps on inserted bifolia, 72 double-page woodcut maps, plans and views on integral leaves, and about 1500 woodcut illustrations in the text (including repeats) showing maps, plans, views, plants, animals, monsters, etc. Contemporary vellum. [24], "1752" [=1748] , [12] pp. Most extensive edition of Münster's monumental, extensively illustrated description of the world, which set a new standard in the field, following both a regional and encyclopaedic approach. The first edition appeared in 1544, but it was greatly expanded over the years, the present edition adding many new maps. The most highly valued of all cosmographies, it passed through dozens of editions in 100 years and was of paramount importance for the revival of geography in 16th-century Europe. The book was printed by the heirs of Sebastian Henricpetri (1546-1627), the son of Heinrich Petri, stepson of the author Sebastian Münster. The 1588 edition (and the two following editions) contained a total of ca. 1280 woodcuts, which number was increased in the present edition with about 200. From the library of Ericsberg Castle near Katrineholm, Sweden, built for the Swedish statesman Erik Karlsson Gyllenstierna (1602-1657) in the 1650s (two engraved views of the castle, from Dahlberg's Suecia antiqua et hodierna, are loosely inserted); several anno … [Click Below for Full Description]

[RUSSELL, John].
The spy, discovering the danger of Arminian heresie and Spanish trecherie: written by I. R.Strasbourg [=Amsterdam, successors of Giles Thorp], 1628. Small 4to (18.5 x 14 cm). 19th-century half calf. 27 ll. Rare first and only edition of a controversial Puritan satire in verse, probably written by John Russell (d. 1688), but sometimes attributed to John Rhodes, minister of Enborne, and John Robinson (1575-1625). The anti-Catholic poem criticizes Arminianism, based on the teachings of the Dutch theologian Jacobus Arminius (1560-1609), who according to Russell was sent by the pope to trick Protestants. "In the manner of John Donne's Ignatius his Conclave, Russell describes a conclave in Hell which reveals that Arminius was sent as a missionary from Hell to establish popery by the back door while seeming to be a Protestant" (Colclough). Russell links the anti-Calvinist tendencies in England to the influence of Spain and the pope; he praises the anti-Spanish and anti-Catholic preacher Thomas Scott (d. 1626), and laments the loss of the days when England resisted Spain.With the armorial bookplate of the Lord Fairfax of Cameron. With some ink annotations on flyleaf, title-page ruled with (now faint) red ink. The first six leaves with marginal restorations, some foxing. Without the folding frontispiece, included in a small number of copies. In fair condition. D. Colclough, Freedom of speech in early Stuart England, p. 118; ESTC S115559; Sabin 70762.

Vas nestes a pontamende de mistura as cauzas originaes que tem lancado a perder este Reino, e a India posta no stado que se ve e juntamende vão os meyos, que pode haver para se tirar dinheiro para o soccorro d[']ella.[Lisbon?, 1628?]. Folio. Manuscript document in Portuguese. Disbound. [9], [3 blank] pp. A detailed report, apparently advising the Portuguese government on the dangers of Dutch incursions in Portuguese colonies, especially in Brazil. The report contains 30 numbered articles. Articles 1, 2 and 26 explicitly name Brazil, but many others name "India", which can refer to the Indies (Brazil was regarded as part of the West Indies). During the 12 Years' Truce (1609-1621), the Dutch agreed not to attack Portuguese ships or territories, but in 1621 the Dutch set up the West India Company to attempt to capture a great deal of the lucrative trade in the New World. The capture of Bahia in 1624 proved short-lived, the Portuguese retaking it in 1625, but in 1630 the Dutch captured Pernambuco and much of the surrounding territory, forming a Dutch colony in Brazil that they were to keep until 1654. The present document is undated, but its references to the Dutch "robberies" in Brazil and to the restoration show it dates after the capture and recapture of Bahia in 1624 and 1625, and apparently before the capture of Pernambuco in 1630. Another (shorter) version of the same report (some articles match nearly word for word), published by Da Silva Tullio, is apparently dated 1628, which seems to suit the present version as well.The ink or quill used damaged some of the paper resu … [Click Below for Full Description]

[RODRIGUES GIRÃO, João and Jean VIREAU? (translator)].
Histoire de ce qui s'est passé au royaume du Japon l'annee 1624.Paris, Sebastien Chappelet, 1628. 8vo. With a woodcut Jesuit seal on the title page. Contemporary tanned sheepskin, blind-stamped with a fleur-de-lys. [16], 390 pp. Very rare, first and only edition of a translation into French of the "Annual Letter" for 1624, the annual account of the Jesuit missions in Japan written for their superiors in Rome. Although possibly written by Jesuits in Japan, the text was edited by Rodrigues Girão in Macao. First published in its original Italian as a standalone book in 1628, it was immediately translated into Latin, French, Dutch and German. The letter describes the Great Edo Martyrdom of 1623, when 50 Christians were crucified on the orders of the Shogun. Added to that are lives of the principal martyrs and descriptions of previous persecutions of the Christians in Japan, whose religion had officially been banned in 1614. The book ends with various papal letters of support written to the Christians in Japan, which are present both in their original Latin and in French translation. With a library stamp and a manuscript date on the title-page. Some spots and waterstains in the margins, especially in the first 30 pages and some browning; small tear in the final page and stains on the final endpaper. Paste-downs are damaged and loose at several corners and front endpaper is missing. Binding rubbed, particularly on the spine. A good, structurally sound copy.

Toulouse: Marguerite de Molinier widow of J. II Colomiès with her nephew R. Colomiès, 1628. 19th-century crushed red morocco (Masson-Debonnelle), gilt-lettered spine title, gilt turn-ins, all edges gilt. Only Edition of this acount of true crime - the assault against and subsequent ransom of twenty-year-old Estienne Portail. On 25 March 1628 a band of Protestant brigands of the village of Revel in southwestern France attacked a Toulouse butcher and his son Estienne. The father escaped with a severe gunshot wound. The son was held for cash. Vigilante pressure swiftly triggered his hanging before two hundred villagers, who were thoroughly disappointed, when the rope failed thrice. The crowd then turned against the outlaws, killing one and returning the badly injured hostage to Revel, where local women treated his wounds to protect their revenue. The ransom was paid eight days later and the much battered Portail sent back to Toulouse. I have identified three other copies, all in France. In excellent condition.

Bisschop, Jan De
1628. Very Good. Hardcover. Full goat skin binding with all edges marbled; raised bands along spine with gilt lettering and decoration. One hundred copperplate engravings created by Jan de Bisschop (1628-1671). We believe this volume was published in 1669 or 1671 by Nicolaes Visscher II (1648-1702) of Amsterdam (no publication information present in the volume). Unpaginated but plates are numbered 1-100. Boards have moderate cracking along spine; marbled edges are faded; leather binding is detached from edges and is chipping, missing 1 ½" piece missing from fore edge on front board; corners are worn; dampstaining affects about 15 pages in the text block along fore edge (does not affect engravings); light soiling to text block and some pencil marginalia from previous owner. Jan de Bisschop, also known as Johannes Episcopius (1628-1671), was "widely influential in art and art publishing. A lawyer by profession, he set up practice in The Hague around 1652 and later founded a drawing academy thereĀ…In addition to landscapes, de Bisschop made figure studies and drawings after classical sculptures and famous paintings, primarily by Italian artists. His publications, which reproduced antique sculptures and Old Master drawings, were instrumental in disseminating the classical style in Holland" (Getty Library). The plates in this volume depict sculptures of Roman gods, emperors, and mythological figures, and were engraved after de Bisschop's own drawings or after the drawings of various artists. ; Engravings; Folio 13" - 23" tall .

CHAMBELLAN, Claude -
A Paris, MDCXXVIII [1628]. FIRST EDITION. 8vo, pp. 32, 31-86, 89-320, woodcut vignette on title, woodcut headpiece and initial in the text; a little browned and with faint waterstain; 18th-century marbled calf, spine with raised bands, ornamented compartments and gilt-stamped red morocco lettering-piece, marbled endpapers, all edges red initial blank with 18th-century entry in ink on the author; late 18th-century stamp Cabinet Litteraire on title. First edition of this uncommon work, written in a lively burlesque style, by Claude Chambellan, a canon at Laon cathedral. The handwritten note on the initial blank tells us that this work was written as revenge against the chapter at Laon, here represented by Polyphemus, after Chambellan had been accused of miscounduct with "une jolie ni�ce pretendue". Littered with French and Latin verse, the work is a splendid account of the various harassments and hatreds practised among members of the chapter, to the extent, it is suggested, of having one of their number murdered. This did not, it seem, go down well with the authorities; the author was condemned to apologise bareheaded to the Laon chapter by an arr�t of the Paris parlement in 1629. This copy is bound with two parts (of five) of Le Pentagone Historique by Camus, bishop of Belley. OCLC records copies at the Library of Congress, University of Delaware, the French National Library, and the University of Mannheim. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Napier, John [Baron Merchiston; Laird of Merchiston]
Petrus Rammasenius, Leiden, 1628. THIRD EDITION OF THE INVENTION & DESCRIPTION OF NAPIER'S BONES, THE 1st CALCULATING MACHINES & THE "PRECURSORS OF SEVENTEENTH-CENTURY AND MODERN CALCULATING MACHINES AND COMPUTERS" (Printing and the Mind of Man 116). Napier's invention, essentially a system of rods, offered a mechanical means for facilitating computation. Note that this work "also contains the first printed reference to the decimal point," an act that then made common its usage (Computer History Portal). The first edition was published in 1617, but this, the third edition is considerably more rare. This specific volume was a part of the Tomash collection on the history of computing. John Napier (1550-1617) was born in Scotland into a prominent family of Scottish lairds. At thirteen, he attended St. Andrews University, though there is no record of his having graduated. In addition to running his family estates and actively participating in the Scottish reform movement, Napier worked on his avocation - mathematics, physics, and astronomy. Though he genuinely considered his scientific pursuits "hobbies," Napier is the person responsible for the invention of logarithms. In 1614 and after 25 years of work, Napier published his work on the subject, defining logarithms as a ratio of two distances in a geometric form, as opposed to the current definition of logarithms as exponents. Following the publication of his work on logarithms, Napier sought a way to simplify calculations by some mechanical means. "Looking to ease his own difficulties in calculating logarithmic tables and imp … [Click Below for Full Description]
