Chinchon, Conde de (i.e., Luis Jerónimo Fernández de Cabrera y Bobadilla).
No publisher/printer. In 1628 the Conde de Chinchon had just finished serving as the Treasurer General of the Consejo de Aragon and was preparing to travel to Peru to be the viceroy and captain general of that New World region. He served in that role from 1629 to 1639. The Count had extensive land, business, and political matters that had to be overseen while he was in Southern Hemisphere, and in this printed form => specifically printed for him he gives his power of attorney to Jose de Carvajal Agurto, "my secretary"; Juan de Olabarria, "my accountant"; and Juan de Alderete. They are empowered to administer his estates, collect rents, and to do "other diverse things." Considerable detail is given concerning the extent of their power, including appearing in his stead before courts and councils, dealing with lawyers, agents, and the clergy, and much more. => Never before have we seen a power of attorney printed specifically for a newly appointed viceroy and specifically stating that he needs it because he is to be a viceroy in the New World. Signed by several witnesses and with the Count's paraph.

CASTELLI, Benedetto [FERMAT]
Very rare first edition in French of two works which founded the modern science of hydraulics, and including <b>an original contribution by Fermat</b> which appears here for the first time. Only one other scientific work of Fermat was published in his lifetime (see below).<br/><br/> The first work is a translation of <i>Demostrazioni geometriche della misura dell'acque correnti</i> (1628). "Castelli's work is considered one of the cornerstones of modern hydraulics, and its importance is such that he is often claimed to have been the founder of the Italian hydraulics school. This treatise on the speed of liquids in channels and on the measurement of that speed is the first to enunciate the well-known theorem in hydraulics known by the author's name. Castelli proposed the first accurate and effective methods for measuring the volume of moving water. This fundamental step in hydraulic mechanics and engineering was accomplished by the geometric method of using the cross-sections of a river to measure the volume. He also discusses the relation of velocity and head-in flow through an orifice. Castelli's work is quoted by almost every major survey of hydraulics..." (Roberts & Trent, p. 66). <br/><br/> The present French translation of Castelli's work has a lengthy preface, 'a messeigneurs les commissaires... pour la jonction des mers,' signed by Saporta, on the great scheme (actually carried out under Louis XIV) to join the Mediterranean to the Atlantic by means of a canal joining the Garonne river to the Etang de Thau in the south, the famous Canal du Midi.

[Bible & Prayer Book - Scottish]:
Cambridge: Printed by the Printers to the Vniversitie, 1628.. [10],93,[3]pp (with errors in numbering). A- F8 G4. With music. Small octavo. Five volumes bound in one (with the Concordance bound between the OT and NT). Later gilt paneled mottled calf, gilt spine label, marbled endsheets, to contemporary style. Bookplate of Joseph Yates, Clanna House. Trimmed rather close throughout, frequently costing register and/or page numbers, some head lines and a few catchwords; some scattered loss of some bottom lines late in the N.T., early ink inscription on first title, small discoloration to first several leaves, stain to lower fore-corners of 2M8 and 2N1, some occasional foxing, soiling and minor spotting, lacking A1 (blank) to BoCP; withal, a reasonably good gathering, neatly bound. An uncommon lot, including the first complete King James Bible printed in Scotland, and the first Edinburgh edition of the Book of Common Prayer. The Bible follows a separate printing of the New Testament in 1628. This edition, it is suggested, was printed in connection with the Coronation of Charles I in Edinburgh in June 1633. Some copies of this printing of the NT were accompanied by plates, but these were later additions (ca. 1638), and there are two settings of some of the sheets, which are frequently comingled. In this copy, the catchword at 3G1 is 'But'; 2F6v has the reading 'carkases'; the catchword at 3G1r is '37 But'; and the headline on 3K3r is 'Of Widows'. The Book of Common Prayer is the form with catchword 'pride' at B1r, and anticipates the ill-f … [Click Below for Full Description]

Lisbon: Mattheus Pinheiro, 1628. 4to., (7 2/8 x 5 2/8 inches). Woodcut head-piece and initial (preliminaries with one or two discreet repairs not affecting the text). Contemporary limp vellum, yapp fore-edges, original free endpapers (expertly recased with modern vellum preserving the original spine and covers, vellum ties renews, endpapers renewed). Provenance: early signature partially obscured on title-page and scholarly notes on verso of original free endpaper; with John Howell, bookseller. THE EARLIEST COMPREHENSIVE ACCOUNT OF TIBET First edition, and AN ATTRACTIVE COPY. Da Veiga was a Jesuit missionary principally in Ethiopia, and the first two sections of this book discuss the activities of the Jesuits in that country. In the third section, entitled "Das Covsas do Reyno do Gram Thybet, a que chamam Catayo, que de nono socederam nos Annos de 625. & 626". da Veiga recounts in five chapters how he accompanied Antonio de Andrade on his second journey into Tibet in 1625 to establish a permanent mission. Veiga includes an account of Andrade's first journey into Tibet from India in August of 1624, the first by any European to reach Tibet, and goes into great detail about their expedition, their work at Tsaparang, and negotiations with local lamas and the Tibetan religion. Geographically and politically inaccessible, Tibet was for many centuries a mystery to European explorers, the subject of myth and legend and persistent rumor that beyond the Himalayan mountains lay secluded Christian communities, the remnants of early evangelizing missions.

Worm hole expertly repaired in titlepage and first dedication leaf, proceeding through the following ten leaves of text, touching two or three letters on each page. Overall, a very good copy. The second edition, after the first of 1626, of this account of Francis Drake's highly successful raid against the Spanish in Panama in 1572-73, one of his early Caribbean raids of plunder and harassment. Sabin states of this edition: "It differs from that of 1626 in having had the advantage of the incorporation of the errata of the latter date under the personal superintendence of the nephew of the great voyager. The last four leaves are larger than the rest of the book." The expedition of fifty-two Englishmen attempted to seize Nombre de Dios, but were repulsed when Drake was wounded in the shoulder. After many reversals and hardships, the British managed to waylay an entire pack train of Peruvian silver, bringing home a fortune. Drake's bold move was approved by Queen Elizabeth, who shared in the plunder, but the politics of his raid on Spain during a period of ostensible peace made it necessary for him to disappear to Ireland for several years after the event.

VALERIANO CASTIGLIONE
In 16. Dim. 15x9 cm. Pp. 225. Edizione originale del 1628 di questa nota opera politica scritta da Valeriano Castiglione (1593-1663) appartenente all'antico casato dei Castiglioni, letterato ed accademico. L'opera è un trattato di precetti politici importantissimo per il pensiero politico del seicento. Fu questo saggio a dare maggiore fama all'autore, da allora considerato il primo trattatista politico del suo tempo. Il saggio aveva lo scopo di insegnare ai principi cattolici la ragion di stato cristiana contro le cattive ragioni di Stato di Machiavelli e Bodin. Il modello dello statista per Castiglione era rappresentato da Emanuele I di Savoia, a tal punto che i contemporanei lo accusarono di aver fatto da prestanome per la stesura dell'opera e che in realtà l'autore fosse proprio il Savoia. L'opera si articola in una serie di cinquanta massime che vengono esposte nell'opera, tra le quali: il principe sia considerato nel maritarsi, nel lasciarsi dominare dalle donne, conservi al sua reputazione, non sia crudele, castighi i delitti, non offenda i sudditi, non permetta che il fisco sia rigoroso, sia benefico verso i poveri, si avvertito circa le insidie del veleno, distrugga i fuoriusciti, bandisca i duelli, permetta ai sudditi gli spettacoli ecc... Bella xilografia rappresentante il giglio fiorentino al frontespizio. Collazionato e risultato completo. Alto valore. Copertina in mezza pergamena con titolo manoscritto al dorso in discrete condizioni generali con lievi usure ai margini e dorso; pergamena applicata su cartoncino ottocentesco. Legatura in buone condizioni. All'in … [Click Below for Full Description]

Stevini, Simonis [ Simon Stevin ]. Danielis Schwenters, editor and contributor
Nürnberg: Simon Halbmayer, 1628. Vellum bound First German edition of a Dutch work published earlier in Stevin's Wisconstige Gedachtnissen (Complete Works) (1605-08) Very Good Duodecimo. 2 complementary works bound in one volume. Contemporary vellum over boards. Slight wear to edges and corners. Many pages have foxing, more so in the pages of the Axiomata. A few pages have very slight tears at foredge. A small rectangle has been cut from the lower corner of the first free endpaper. Binding has a small nick at foredge of back board. Vellum slightly scuffed. with light soiling. [24]154 [10], [182] p. Large printer's device on last page. Many simple geometrical woodcut illustrations, primarily of triangles. Contains the first 2 parts of Stevin's work on trigonometry translated into German from the original Dutch, with 4 axioms (Pitisci Axiomata) from Bartolomeo Pitiscus added by Schwenters in his forward. The second part of the book is a work consisting of tables for sine, tangent and secant added by Schwenters. The work does not include the 3rd part of Stevin's Trigonometry, which covered spherical triangles - indeed, Schwenters states Stevin did no writing in this area, which is incorrect. The original edition of this work is titled "Driehouckhandel". The translator for this work is unknown and was perhaps Schwenter himself, but appears not have had access to a complete copy. (Struick, Principle Works of Simon Stevin, II B p. 755). Less desirable than Dutch editions but still a scarce work on Trigonometry by one of the more important mathematicians of the early Dutch indepe … [Click Below for Full Description]
