Heylyn Peter
William Turner and Thomas Hughes, 1629. A very early printing, being the fourth, revised by the author. With an engraved architectural title-page, several engraved head or tail pieces and an engraved 12 line initial. 8vo, full contemporary brown calf, the covers with double fillet lines at the borders in blind, the spine with blind ruled raised bands. [xx], 807, [2] pp. A complete and well preserved copy, crisp, unsophisticated and unpressed of this very scarce and important book. The contemporary binding worn and with normal evidence of age, some expected toning. Occasional antique ownership and marginal notations of previous owners. VERY SCARCE AND AN IMPORTANT EARLY ENGLISH TRAVEL WORK PROVIDING A STUDY OF AMERICA. A very early printing of this important encyclopedic attempt to describe the peoples and regions of the world in meticulous detail. While over half of the book describes Europe and the Holy Land and such far away locales as Africa, India, China and Japan, there is a section on the Americas which is an extremely early English account of the new found land. Heylyn states his disapproval of the name America, thinking it stresses the importance of Vespucci far too much. He thought that Cabot and Columbus both deserved greater recognition and that the name "New World" would suffice. The work was not unbiased and was influenced by both politics and religion. It is an important milestone in the area of geographical or travel writing. Largely drawn from Heylyn's lectures at Oxford, it offers a clear representation of European knowledge of the rest of the world at the … [Click Below for Full Description]

CABEO, Niccolò (1586-1650).
- Folio (310 x 220 mm). Mit Kupfertitel, 4 kleinen Textkupfern (davon 2 Weltkarten) und gegen 240 Holzschnitte im Text. [8] Bl. (inkl. Kupfertite), 412 S., [6] Bl. Index. Flexibler Pergamentband d. Z., mit hs. Titel und Nr. auf dem Rücken. Ferrara, Francesco Suzzi, 1629. Erster Druck der Erstausgabe des bewundernswerten Werks über die Elektrizität und den Magnetismus. Mit ihm knüpfte der Verfasser als erster unmittelbar an das Werk 'De magnete' des Begründers der Elektrizitätslehre, William Gilbert an. Als Professor für Mathematik wirkte der 1602 in den Jesuitenorden eingetretene Niccolò Cabeo zuerst in Parma und später am Jesuitenkolleg von Genua. Neben astronomischen Beobachtungen des Mondes - Cabeo lehnte die kopernikanische Lehre ab - beschäftigte er sich mit ähnlichen Problemen wie dreissig Jahre zuvor der Engländer Gilbert. Cabeo lehnte zwar dessen Vorstellung ab, die Erde sei ein enorm grosser Magnet, andererseits aber versuchte er eine genaue Unterscheidung zu treffen zwischen elektrischen und magnetischen Erscheinungen. Er experimentierte mit der Elektrisierung von Bernstein und entdeckte, dass statische Elektrizität attraktiv und - was Gilbert entgangen war - auch repulsiv sein kann. Seine Experimente betrieb Cabeo ausschliesslich mit statischer Elektrizität. Dazu lud er Stoffe wie Bernstein elektrostatisch auf, wobei die erforderliche Landungstrennung durch Reibung erzeugt wurde. Skeptisch stand Cabeo den überlieferten und noch weit verbreiteten Vorstellungen aussergewöhnlicher Kräfte der Magnete gegenüber, deren angeblich wundersame und erstaunliche Wirkungen er … [Click Below for Full Description]

De Bry, Theodor
De Bry, Theodor, 1629. Very good condition. Copper engraved plate from Theodor De Bry's "Grand Voyages" printed from 1590-1634. Latin versions were printed from 1609-1629. The engraving depicts Native Americans, perhaps in Central America (due to coconut trees), feasting, dancing and playing, as their chief reclines at the right, a group of young children cavorts in the foreground, and Dutch explorers at the left observe the scene. De Bry [1528-1598] was a Flemish engraver, designer, printmaker and publisher. He and his sons published literature on New World exploration, often written as first hand accounts, and illustrated with De Bry's engravings. Many Europeans based their impressions of the 'New World' and its people from these early illustrations. A good strong impression. Grand and Petit Voyages as a set on OCLC 43624921. Engraving 8 1/4 x 6 3/4" on sheet 8 3/4 x 11 3/4". Text in Latin, printed on one side only.

Importante epistolario del celebre cardinale francese (1536-1604). Allievo del Cuiacio a Bourges, d'Ossat ebbe modo di segnalarsi per il suo spirito diplomatico tanto da divenire il punto di riferimento della politica di Enrico IV in Italia. Di grande importanza, a proposito, furono le lunghe trattative con Clemente VIII per ricondurre il re nella comunione romana; il notevole spessore politico trapela anche da questa ricca raccolta di lettere che godette di grande prestigio e circolò in tutta Europa ricevendo numerose edizioni e traduzioni. Quella italiana venne compilata dal gesuita Girolamo Canini (1551-1631), nativo di Anghiari, autore di aforismi politici e di celebri traduzioni, fra cui spiccano queste lettere ed i Saggi di Montaigne.

Edizione originale molto raraÂdi quest'opera di Manfredi Francesco Baronio, nato a Monreale nel 1593. Entro' nella Compagnia di Gesu'Âma nel 1625Âchiese le dimissioni: le ragioni di questo provvedimento vennero indicate un secolo dopo dallo storico gesuita Aguilera, che parlo' di eccessiva intemperanza e litigiosita'. Baronio fu poi accusato di avere aderito alla rivolta della popolazione di Palermo del 1647, e venne pertanto primaÂincarcerato dall'Inquisizione, poi mandato in esilio a Pantelleria e a Gaeta dove mori' nel 1654. Quest'opera presenta unaÂroventeÂinvettiva contro il gesuita Melchior Inchofer, che, nel difendere l'autenticita' della Sacra Lettera della Madonna ai Messinesi, non aveva risparmiato gli attacchi a Palermo, asserendo la supremazia della citta' di Messina su Palermo. Baronio sostiene l'autenticita' della Sacra lettera venerata a Messina come autentica missiva della Vergine e attacca il gesuita ribadendo la supremazia palermitana. Mira, p. 85. Bell'esemplare. ITA

On his death in 1706, The business was continued for a time by his widow Maria untill 1709. In 1710, the De Wit plates were sold to Mortier, Van der Aa, and Renard. Reinier and Joshua Ottens (both 1704-1765) are publishers, cartographers and map engravers from the Netherlands.

Legatura coeva in tutto cartone alla rustica. Piccolo difetto della carta con mancanza di un angolo bianco a p. 207 - 208, qualche strappo restaurato senza perdite). Ottimo esemplare a pieni margini con barbe. Un piccolo disegno a china al frontespizio, firma di possesso a p. 193 "Nob. Sig. Antonio Borromeo". Prima edizione. Il trattato di architettura di Giuseppe Viola Zanini appartiene ad un genere di letteratura propriamente tecnica e con finalit... pratica che si sviluppa nel '600. A questo genere appartengono i trattati del Branca (Manuale d'architettura, Ascoli, 1629), del Barca (Avvertimenti e regole circa l'architettura civile, Milano, 1620), dell'Osio (Architettura civile, Milano 1641), del Capra (La nuova architettura familiare, Bologna, 1678). "Zanini's treatise is distinguished by its regional focus. Aimed at a local audience, Zanini?s ideas were exemplified through buildings and works of art predominantly drawn from Padua and nearby north Italian cities. Zanini's main contribution is that he provides the first formal discussion of the principles of quadratura ceiling painting, a subject explored in great depth by other XVIIth century authors, such as Agostino Mitelli. This large work is divided into two books. The three sections of the first book deal with the origins of architecture, building materials, and the 'elements' of architecture. The second book is devoted entirely to the five orde … [Click Below for Full Description]

Piccolo segno di tarlo al margine interno bianco delle prime due carte. Buon esemplare genuino. Prima edizione di estrema rarit... del primo manuale tascabile d'architettura. Il Manuale si presenta come una ?guida? pratica per la progettazione e costruzione, secondo i canoni del Seicento, strumento di lavoro che lo stesso autore definisce essere ?solamente fatto per suo commentario portatile? ed utile perch‚ ?non potendo haver sempre commodit... de libri?, compendiava lo stretto necessario per l'arte del costruire. Questo breve trattato di architettura appartiene ad un genere di letteratura propriamente tecnica e con finalit... pratica che si sviluppa nel '600.

BRANCA, Giovanni.
Roma, ad istanza di Iacomo Manuci per Iacomo Mascardi, 1629. in-4, 80 fogli complessivi in tre sezioni, numerate: (3), 1-40; 1-14; 1-23, leg. coeva in p. pelle, tassello e fregi oro al dorso. Titolo entro bordura architettonica figurata inc. in rame; illustrato da 77 tavole in silografia a piena pagina nel testo al recto di altrettanti fogli, di varie e interessanti macchine. Prima ed unica edizione di grande opera classica di tecnologia del Seicento, l'ultima della trattatistica rinascimentale. Il Branca (1571-1645) si segnalò in opere di architettura a Roma, a Loreto e Assisi, e la presente opera gli assicurò un posto di primo piano tra gli scrittori di trattati scientifici, precursori della tecnica meccanica moderna. Vi espone (fig. 25) la progenitrice delle moderne turbine a vapore ad azione, cioé l'applicazione della potenza espansiva della turbina. La grande rarità di questo libro è dovuta alla presente unica edizione data alle stampe ed alla sua scarsa diffusione, contrariamente a quanto avvenne per le opere analoghe di Zonca e Besson, che conobbero svariate edizioni in diverse lingue. Bell'esemplare, assai puro (lievissimo arrossamento uniforme della carta).. Dibner, Heralds of Science 175. Riccardi I, 188-9: «Raro e ricercatissimo». Horblit 172. Wheeler Gift 96. Cultura delle macchine p. 46 e 90. Manca alla Hoover Coll. e al Cat.Vinciana..

GAFFAREL (Jacques)
Paris, Hervé du Mesnil, 1629. (54), 644pp., 2 planches repliées vélin souple de l'époque avec attaches (quelques manques de vélin et les attaches de cuir ont été arrachées) 1629, 1629, in-8, (54), 644pp, 2 planches repliées, vélin souple de l'époque avec attaches (quelques manques de vélin et les attaches de cuir ont été arrachées), Un grand traité de kabbalistique condamné par la Sorbonne. Edition originale parisienne de cet important traité au croisement de l'alchimie, de l'occultisme et de la kabbale. Son livre étant condamné par la Sorbonne dés 1629, le prêtre, docteur en droit canon qu'était Jacques Gaffarel, ne tint pas tête à la censure ecclésiastique et désavoua son livre en signant une double rétractation ("Retractatio Jac. Gaffarelli, auctoris libri. Des Curiositez inouyes" [...], Paris, J. Guillemot, 1629). Malgré cette condamnation, l'ouvrage fut très largement diffusé tout au long du XVIIe siècle, tout d'abord à Lyon et Rouen au début des années 1630, puis, de nouveau, à Paris, à partir de 1650. Jacques Gaffarel, ecclésiastique, orientaliste et hébraïsant, acquit une culture singulière par la lecture de textes judaïques et orientaux. Il la mit à profit dans ses "Curiositez", publiés alors qu'il n'avait que 28 ans. En effet, dans le présent ouvrage, il tente, en suivant la méthode de Guillaume Postel, d'appliquer l'interprétation kabbalistique à l'astronomie. Ainsi les figures ou les formes des talismans du fait de leur ressemblance avec les signes de certaines constellations, celles-ci influant sur l'existence des hommes, expriment des puissances naturelles eff … [Click Below for Full Description]
