"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,-.

WOOD, William (1580-1639)
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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

MENGOLI, Pietro.
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), whic … [Click Below for Full Description]

Dark brown full leather with extensive decorative stamping in blind. The front interior hinge has had amateur but competent repair. The rear interior hinge is open. Nonetheless there is a sturdy fell to the volume. The engraved frontispiece has a tiny sliver along the top edge and the top right corner missing which has now been guarded. The trimming at the top edge of all pages is a little close to the text. Pictures of this item not already displayed here available upon request.
