        Southern Africa - Blaeu, 1635.

      "Aethiopia Inferior, vel Exterior'. Copper engraving first published in 1635 by the house of Blaeu in Amsterdam. Size: 38,5 x 49,5 cm. With original hand colouring.Attractive map of Southern Africa, shortly before the first Dutch settlement in the region. The map was largely based on Portuguese exploration, both real and imagined. The area shown is from the Congo River basin around the Cape of Good Hope and up the east coast as far as northern present-day Mozambique. A good number of coastal names are given, including Mozambique Island which was an important re-supply point for ships sailing to India and the East. To the north just below the equator, we see one of the lakes described by Claudius Ptolomaeus in the 2nd century AD, thought to be the source of the Nile. Information on the interior is sparse, reflecting the lack of knowledge the Europeans had about the interior of Africa. Unlike many other maps which are filled in with fanciful or fictitious information, this map more accurately portrays actual knowledge.This was the standard map of South Africa throughout the 17th century after which many maps were copied. The cartouche depicts two native Africans holding up an ox skin bearing the map title. At their feet are monkeys and tortoises.Price: € 850,-.

Folio a1, blanco, ausente; primer cuaderno desencajado; cuerpo abierto en pág. 120 y en el margen interior hasta p. 154; último folio, Ss4, blanco, ausente; papel algo oscurecido, muy seco y frágil en los cantos.- // Proc.: Firma de propietario encima del título, Robert Discon, fechada en 1709; sello de la New York City Bar Association en portada.- // Primera edición de este gran clásico del derecho internacional que fue escrito con motivo de la conferencia anglo-holandesa de 1618 sobre derecho marítimo, consecuencia de los conflictos pesqueros entre Inglaterra y los Países bajos. Su objetivo era refutar las tesis de Grocio del mare liberum, el océano libre para todos. Escrito entre 1617 y 1618, no se publicó hasta 1635, para reeditarse de inmediato, en 1636, en una formato menor. Selden era un reconocido jurista, formado en Oxford, Lo esencial y lo innovador de su tesis fue que el mar era tan susceptible de dominio y propiedad como lo era la tierra, y que el rey [inglés] era dueño del mar que rodeaba sus territorios como un apéndice perpetuo e inseparable del imperio británico. Del debate enfrentado entre los defensores de la posición de Grocio y los de la de Selden fue de donde surgió el pacto de reconocer una soberanía limitada sobre las aguas costeras, en un principio sobre las tres primeras millas, que con el tiempo fue elevada a las doce primeras millas y que, actualmente, hay quien intenta que se cifre hasta en doscientas. Ignoramos por qué de esta obra se dice que tiene 2 mapas y 6 grabados, cuando hay tres mapas (dos de cobre y una xilografía) y cuatro xilografías más, tres de monedas y la última un emblema.- // Refs.: Sabin, 78971; Recogido en Goldsmiths'-Kress Library of Economic Literature.

      1635. Preferred Edition of Lambard[e]'s Archeion Lambard[e], William [1536-1601]. Archeion, Or, A Discourse Upon the High Courts of Iustice in England. Newly Corrected, and Enlarged According to the Authors Copie. London: Printed by E.P. for Henry Seile, 1635. [xiv], 276 pp. First leaf of text, a blank, lacking. Octavo (5-1/2" x 3-1/2"). Handsome period-style calf, blind fillets to boards, raised bands, lettering piece and blind ornaments to spine. Moderate toning to text, very faint dampstining and finger smudges to a few leaves, light soiling to title page. A few brief annotations in small early hand, interior otherwise clean. A desirable copy. $650. * Second, final and best edition. Lambard[e], a barrister, justice of the peace and legal historian, was also the keeper of records at the Rolls Chapel and the Tower of London. He is best known for his Eirenarcha, Or the Office of the Justices of Peace (1581). Archeion is a historical commentary on the central courts of justice in England that was published posthumously by his grandson, Thomas Lambard, in 1635. The first printing, which was produced without his authorization, led him to issue the "newly corrected" and "enlarged" edition, which appeared later that year. (In his angry "Note to the Reader" Lambard complains about the "crying errors" of the earlier printing.) English Short-Title Catalogue S108230.

        New Englands Prospect. A true lively, and experimentall description of that part of America, commonly called New England: discovering the state of that Countrie, both as it stands to our new-come English Planters; and to the old Native Inhabitants. Laying downe that which may both enrich the knowledge of the mind-travelling Reader, or benefit the future Voyager

      London: Printed by Tho. Cotes for Iohn Bellamie, 1635. Small quarto. (7 1/16 x 5 1/2 inches). 1 folding woodcut and letterpress map. (Map close shaved to margins with two old neat repairs to verso, upper margins shaved touching headlines and occasional page number, neatly repaired wormtrack through outer blank margins of title and text leaves to C4). Twentieth century crimson morocco gilt bound for Myers & Co. of London, spine in three compartments with raised bands, lettered in gilt in the second compartment, gilt turn-ins. Black morocco backed slipcase. The rare second edition of Wood's 'New England's Prospect', with the very rare map: one of the classic works on early New England, important for descriptions of the land, natives, and of course its handsome map. The first edition of this remarkably accurate work was published in 1634. According to Vail it includes the earliest topographical description of the Massachusetts colony. It is also the first detailed account of the animals and plants of New England, as well as the Indian tribes of the region. Of particular note is a chapter describing the customs and work of Indian women. Part One is divided into twelve chapters and is devoted to the climate, landscape, and early settlements, and describes in some detail the native trees, plants, fish game and mineral ores, as well as including advice to those thinking of crossing the Atlantic. The early settlements described include: Boston, Medford, Marblehead, Dorchester, Roxbury, Medford, Watertown, New and Old Plymouth. These chapters also include four charming verses which are essentially a series of lists naming the native trees (20 lines, starting 'Trees both in hills and plaines, in plenty be, /The long liv'd Oake, and mournfull Cyprus tree/ ... '), the animals (12 lines, starting 'The kingly Lyon, and the strong arm'd Beare, / The large lim'd Mooses, with the tripping Deare, / ...'), the birds (28 lines, starting 'The Princely Eagle, and the soaring Hawke, / Whom in their unknowne wayes there's none can chawke: / The Humberd for some Queenes rich Cage more fit, / Than in the vacant Wildernesse to sit, / ... '), and the inhabitants of the seas and rivers (28 lines, starting 'The king of waters, the Sea shouldering Whale, / ... '). The chapter on the birds also includes what are clearly eye-witness descriptions of a number of birds including the Humming-Bird and the Passenger Pigeon. Part Two is devoted to the native inhabitants, and is divided into twenty chapters. The tribes described are the 'Mohawks', 'Connectecuts,' 'Pequants and Narragansetts.' Again Wood goes into some detail describing the clothing, sports, wars, games, methods of hunting and fishing, their arts, and ending with their language: the work ends with a five-page vocabulary of Indian words, one of the earliest published for New England. The map, which is often lacking, is here in a crisp, clean example. It is one of the most important early New England maps. It shows most of the New England coast north of Narragansett Bay. Philip Burden praises the map: `Although simply made, this map is of greater accuracy than any before it. Covering the area from the Pascataque River, in present day New Hampshire, to Narragansett Bay, it is, however, the Massachusetts Bay area that is shown with the most detail ...Wood's map was not improved upon until the John Foster map in 1677.' `Little is known of the author. The dedication to Sir William Armine, Bart., of Lincolnshire, may indicate that Wood was also from there. He was resident in New England, perhaps primarily in Lynn, from 1629 to 1633, when he returned to London to publish his book. He may have returned to New England afterward. The General Court of Massachusetts Bay voted thanks to him on the appearance of New England's Prospect. The exceptional charm and vivacity of Wood's writing, including flights of verse, is widely acknowledged.' (Siebert Sale).

        Geometriae Speciose Elementa.Bologna: Giovanni Battista Ferroni, 1659.

      First edition, and a fine copy from the library of Pietro Riccardi, of this very rare and highly original work in which Mengoli "set up the basic rules of the calculus thirty years before Newton and Leibniz. Both of these were influenced by his contribution, in the case of Leibniz the influence was direct as he read Mengoli's work, while in the case of Newton he knew of it indirectly through studying Wallis" (MacTutor History of Mathematics). Mengoli develops here a new method of quadratures, i.e., finding the areas of geometrical figures, based on François Viète's symbolic, or 'specious' algebra, and on his own new theory of 'quasi proportions,' the first true theory of limits. Like the <i>Geometria indivisibilibus</i> (1635) of Mengoli's master Bonaventura Cavalieri, the <i>Geometriae</i> is an important precursor of the integral calculus. Cavalieri's method of indivisibles, which was entirely geometrical, had been much criticized by his contemporaries for having uncertain foundations, and Mengoli wrote the <i>Geometriae</i> in part as a defense of Cavalieri. Mengoli's 'specious geometry' is, however, an entirely new method with a largely algebraic basis. This is an extremely rare book: OCLC records just one copy in the US (New York Public Library), and we have located only one copy in auction records.<br/><br/> In the first decades of the seventeenth century mathematicians began to assimilate the symbolic algebra introduced by Viète in his great work <i>In Artem Analyticem Isagoge</i> (1591). The first important consequence was Descartes' <i>La Géométrie</i> (1637), which used Viète's specious algebra to solve geometrical problems (essentially those that reduce to the determination of the points of intersection of two curves). Mengoli's work applies specious algebra to the summation of power series and a different class of geometrical problems, the quadrature of curves. "In his work <i>Geometriae Speciosae Elementa</i>, algebra and geometry are used in complementary ways in the investigation of quadrature problems. At the beginning of this work he claimed that his geometry was a combination of those of Cavalieri and Archimedes obtained using the tools that Viete's 'specious algebra' offered him ... His principal aim was to square the circle, a goal he achieved by means of his new method in a later work, <i>Circolo</i>" (Massa Esteve, p. 84). "Mengoli believed that the basis of Cavalieri's method of indivisibles was not sufficiently sound. He wanted to provide a solid foundation for the application of this method to square the given figures, new figures, and, especially, the circle ... First, using his own system of coordinates, he expressed geometric figures by algebraic expressions. Second, to classify these algebraic expressions he placed them in a triangular table. Third, he used these algebraic expressions as part of a method for the geometrical construction of coordinates of these figures, and finally, he used triangular tables and quasi proportions to find new quadratures and to produce general demonstrations of quadrature results" (<i>ibid</i>., p. 94)..

        Prognosticon divinum et verum. Das ist: Wahre und klare Prohezeiung, wie es noch der in Welt werde zugehen.

      heirs of Jacob Meister, Alkmaar 1635 - FIRST EDITION(?) 4to., 12 unnumbered ll, A-C4 , Gothic letter, woodcut vignette on t.p. of fire breathing dragon and figures in landscape, woodcut ornament. General paper browning (poor quality paper), a good, otherwise clean and well margined copy in modern boards. An extremely rare prognostication based on Scripture various Christian authors, probably in its first edition. There were two issues in that year and no precedence has been ascribed, if indeed there is one. Astronomer and physician Simeon Partlitz or Partlicius (1588-1640) was an exile from Bohemia and a millenarist influenced by the Calvinist theology of Alsted and by Rosicrucianism. His prognostication is divided into three sections where he collects excerpts first from the Old and New Testament, then from the works of Martin Luther and other Lutheran theologians, and finally from earlier Christian scholars. All portend violent renewal for the world and for Germany, and an unpleasant reversal for Rome. He then attaches a 'Confutation' which expresses his anger that various astronomical and astrological works had been published under his name, without his knowledge, consent, or, implicitly, any chance of his being paid for them. He counsels against avarice, states that God will punish these wrong-doers, and notes that he doesn't even have the time to write anything of that sort, busy as he is with his medical practice. The final four pages of the pamphlet comprise a poem in German criticising the immorality of the rich and emphasising the futility of all wealth gathering, unless accompanied by moral repentance. VD 17 lists only four entries for printing in Alkmaar, Northern Holland, all of the present title, two in 1635, and two in 1637. One of the entries queries whether the imprint is fictitious. The paper is in fact typically German of the period. Not in BMC Ger C17. Cantamessa VIII 5867, locating copies only at Berlin, Halle and Göttingen.

Boehme (1575-1624), shoemaker, glove- maker, Protestant mystic, and the founder of modern theosophy, published little in his lifetime, and what was published brought him endless trouble with the Church authorities.

        NEW ENGLANDS PROSPECT. A TRUE, LIVELY, AND EXPERIMENTALL DESCRIPTION OF THAT PART OF AMERICA, COMMONLY CALLED NEW ENGLAND: DISCOVERING THE STATE OF THAT COUNTRIE, BOTH AS IT STANDS TO OUR NEW-COME ENGLISH PLANTERS; AND TO THE OLD NATIVE INHABITANTS

      London, 1635. Small quarto. 20th-century crimson morocco, gilt, bound for Myers & Co. of London, spine gilt with raised bands. Map trimmed to margins with two old neat repairs on verso. Upper margins trimmed, touching headlines and an occasional page number. Neatly repaired worm track through outer blank margins of title and text leaves to C4. Else very good. In a black half morocco and cloth box. The rare second edition of Wood's NEW ENGLANDS PROSPECT..., with the very rare map: one of the classic works on early New England, important for descriptions of the land, natives, and its handsome map. The first edition of this remarkably accurate work was published in 1634. According to Vail it includes the earliest topographical description of the Massachusetts colony. It is also the first detailed account of the animals and plants of New England, as well as the Indian tribes of the region. Of particular note is a chapter describing the customs and work of Indian women. Part One is divided into twelve chapters and is devoted to the climate, landscape, and early settlements, and describes in some detail the native trees, plants, fish, game, and mineral ores, as well as including advice to those thinking of crossing the Atlantic. The early settlements described include Boston, Medford, Marblehead, Dorchester, Roxbury, Watertown, and New and Old Plymouth. These chapters also include four charming verses which are essentially a series of lists naming the native trees (twenty lines, starting "Trees both in hills and plaines, in plenty be, / The long liv'd Oake, and mournfull Cyprus tree / ..."); the animals (twelve lines, starting "The kingly Lyon, and the strong arm'd Beare, / The large lim'd Mooses, with the tripping Deare, / ..."); the birds (twenty-eight lines, starting "The Princely Eagle, and the soaring Hawke, / Whom in their unknowne wayes there's none can chawke: / The Humberd for some Queenes rich Cage more fit, / Than in the vacant Wildernesse to sit, / ..."); and the inhabitants of the seas and rivers (twenty-eight lines, starting "The king of waters, the Sea shouldering Whale, / ..."). The chapter on the birds also includes what are clearly eye- witness descriptions of a number of birds including the Hummingbird and the Passenger Pigeon. Part Two is devoted to the native inhabitants and is divided into twenty chapters. The tribes described are the "Mohawks," "Connectecuts," "Pequants and Narragansetts." Again Wood goes into some detail describing the clothing, sports, wars, games, methods of hunting and fishing, their arts, and ending with their language: the work ends with a five-page vocabulary of Indian words, one of the earliest published for New England. The map, one of the most important early New England maps (and often lacking from the book) is here in a crisp, clean, fine example. It is the second state of the map, the same as appeared in the 1634 first edition, but with a reset heading, changing the date to 1635. It shows most of the New England coast north of Narragansett Bay. Philip Burden praises the map: "An extremely influential and very rare map, the most detailed of the emerging settlements in New England to date....Although simply made, this map is of greater accuracy than any before it. Covering the area from the Pascataque River, in present day New Hampshire, to Narragansett Bay, it is, however, the Massachusetts Bay area that is shown with the most detail....Wood's map was not improved upon until the John Foster [map] in 1677." It is the first map of the region made by a resident, William Wood, and the first to name Boston and some thirty other English or Indian settlements. The delineation of the coast is very well done, and it influenced John Smith, whose 1635 map includes a three-line inscription referring to Wood's map as the source for new information, and also shows new towns depicted on Wood's map. "Little is known of the author. The dedication to Sir William Armine, Bart., of Lincolnshire, may indicate that Wood was also from there. He was resident in New England, perhaps primarily in Lynn, from 1629 to 1633, when he returned to London to publish his book. He may have returned to New England afterward. The General Court of Massachusetts Bay voted thanks to him on the appearance of NEW ENGLAND'S PROSPECT. The exceptional charm and vivacity of Wood's writing, including flights of verse, is widely acknowledged" - Siebert sale.
