        Manuscript - Nomogram & Sundial w/Drawings

      London, 1636. London, circa 1636-37. Exceedingly scarce manuscript on the complex science of dialling, dating to the great age of the European sundial, in which astronomer and mathematician Samuel Foster, distinguished Professor of astronomy at Gresham College, describes the construction and use of an Analemmatic sundial, a vertical sundial, and a declining sundial, for the purpose of keeping time. 8vo. approximately 15 x 18 cm, 12 pages on four double leafs, laid watermarked paper. Slight aging to extremities, otherwise in very good condition, beautifully preserved, a significant work. Foster's manuscript writings are exceedingly rare with the latest manuscript appearing at Sotheby's Macclesfield sale in 2004. By applying an instrument invented by the writer himself, and having established the scientific rules of dialling, Foster proceeds to instruct his appetent audience on the methods of constructing various types of sundials as precise time telling devices. A prominent subject at the time, Foster refers to previous lectures and concludes with a remark which reveals that his pioneering studies were still underway, as such aiding in dating the work. The mathematical construction employed by Foster was the nomogram, a calculating device consisting of a circle divided in two, with one quantity on one semi-circular arc, a second quantity on the other semi-circle, and a third along the diameter splitting the two, as illustrated herein. By placing a ruler across the circle, the required mathematical relationship will be ascertained by the three points it crosses. The device was likely made by esteemed instrument maker Anthony Thompson, also based at Gresham College, whom provided Foster with quadrants and other instruments built to Foster's designs. Interestingly, some authorities date the development of nomograms to 1905, attributing it to J. Clark, nearly three centuries after Samuel Foster's work. Four of Foster's treatises on dialling are bound in an eclectic volume of tracts by numerous authors which is held in the Emmanuel College library. This manuscript relates to Samuel Foster's most important invention, a computational device known as a dialling scale, and precedes the publication of his second and most significant book, as follows: In 1638 Foster wrote "The Art of Dialling; by a New, Easie, and Most Speedy Way... how to describe the Houre-lines upon all sorts of Plaines, Howsoever, or in what Latitude soever Situated..." which was printed in London by I. Dawson for F. Eglesfield (sold at the signe of the Marigold in Pauls Church-yard). This work described the construction of horizontal, vertical and inclining sundials using his dialing scale, the first circular nomogram. In his appendix, "shewing a ready way to find out the latitude of any place the Sunne... By the Meridian Altitude, and declination of the sun had; how to find the Latitude of the place, or the elevation of the Pole above the horizon", Foster recommended observing the altitude of the Sun above the horizon at mid-day (i.e. its highest point), and supplied a table of correction factors for the Sun's position along the ecliptic on every day of the year. He concluded the appendix with a worked example. (Finding the latitude of your location is vital in order to align the gnomon of a sundial correctly and so use the sundial to tell the time accurately.). Very Good.

        Mappa Aestivarvm Insularum, alias Barmudas.

      Amsterdam 1636 - Fine original color; excellent condition; elegantly framed. A beautiful example of this classic Dutch map of Bermuda. As were most 17th century maps of Bermuda, Hondius¿ was based on Richard Norwood¿s 1618 chart, executed in behalf of the Bermuda Company. The map thus includes the parishes and tribes allotted to the company¿s principal members with their names included, most of which survive in one form or another to this day. The map vividly illustrates how hazardous the coastline of Bermuda was and is to shipping by the almost unbroken ring of crosses signifying wrecks surrounding the island. The engraving actually includes two maps of Bermuda of different scales. Nestled within the hook of the island is another, smaller depiction of Bermuda, placed there to show its position and size relative to Cape Cod, Nova Scotia and Virginia. (Roanoke, Cape Henry and Cape Charles are all named). This design proved confusing to some later copiers, who dispensed with the mainland in their renditions while mistakenly retaining the smaller ¿Bermuda,¿ thereby transforming it into a small island off the coast of Bermuda. Palmer, MCS No. 19, map no. 8.

First and only edition of Obicini's Arabic, Syriac and Latin glossary, based on the 11th-century Arabic and Syriac glossary compiled by the East Syriac scholar, monk and priest Elija bar Shinaja from Shenna in what is now northern Iraq, metropolitan of Nisibis from 1008. Shinaja's version is also known as "The book of the interpreter". The words are arranged by subject and set in three columns with, from right to left, Arabic, Syriac and Latin. It opens from the right, like an Arabic or Syriac book. The Index alphabeticus has its own title-page, pagination and series of signatures, but forms an appendix to the Thesaurus, providing an alphabetical index to the Latin words and phrases. With an inscription on the back paste-down. With 4 quires badly browned and some others somewhat browned. Otherwise in good condition and with all three integral blank leaves. The binding has some worm holes in the boards and a couple small holes in the hinges, but is structurally sound. A pioneering work in the European study of the Arabic and Syriac languages.

        [Annalia Dvbrensia. Vpon the Yeerly Celebration of Mr. Robert Dovers Olimpick Games Vpon Cotswold-Hills]

      London: Printed for Robert Raworth, 1636. (COTSWOLD GAMES) First edition of this very rare poetical miscellany, including contributions by Drayton, Jonson, Randolph, Feltham, Heywood, and many others. Small quarto. Engraved (facsimile) frontispiece depicting the Cotswold Games. Robert Dover, founder of the games, is on horseback, carrying a wand. [34] leaves (of 35 or 36). 19th-century quarter morocco and boards (spine quite rubbed), an imperfect copy, with the frontispiece in facsimile, and wanting the title leaf, some foxing and tanning early and late, K1 trimmed a bit close at fore-edge, barely touching a few letters, an occasional headline slightly cropped, otherwise a reasonably good (though still imperfect) copy, the front binder's endsheet and pastedown bear some neat 19th century bibliographic annotations, a book plate, and an 1813 ownership inscription. Case 84; ESTC S111583; STC 24954 . Case and ESTC locate variants, the former recording a literal reprint with an added poem on K2 (not present here, and cited by Case as 84b), and the latter copies with one of three different dedicatory leaves added (none here present). The poems praise Robert Dover for his stewardship and promotion of the Cotswold Games, beginning ca. 1612, although it is unclear whether Dover actually started the event, or simply elaborated upon a more modest pre-extant celebration. The Games ended for a period in 1642, after the outbreak of the Civil War, but were revived in 1660, and persisted in forms both temperate and intemperate through 1850. A modern revival, beginning in 1965 under the sponsorship of the Robert Dover's Games Society, has been formalized. ESTC, which does not distinguish Case's reprint with the extra poem on K2, locates 9 copies of this edition in North America (including the variants), and even the early 18th century reprint (dated conjecturally 1720 by ESTC, and which features added text on the verso of A2) is uncommon. No copy at auction (until 2013 when it brought £2800) Writing in 1972, the athletics coach and sports journalist Ron Pickering said: "The influence of English rural sports, and the work of William Penny Brookes and Robert Dover, have been significant in the development of the Olympic Games philosophy. Almost half the events in the Modern Games are historically connected to British rural sports. Therefore we have a certain arrogant claim and a responsibility to the development of the Modern Olympic Games"

It was published by Obicini?s pupil Germanus de Silesia, author of an Arabic Grammar and an Italian-Arabic dictionary. It is dedicated by Achilles Venerius to Cardinal Barbarini. The Syriac types are the 20pt Maronite types and the Arabic of the text Granjon?s arabe du kitãb al-Bustãn.Thomas Obicini (1585-1632) from Novara, was abbot of the Franciscan convent at Aleppo. In 1621 he returned to Rome and became first lector of Arabic in the St Peter Convent. He was responsible for the supervision of the type designs of Oriental types at the Propaganda Press. The author warns the reader against irregularities in the text, owing to the difficulties in printing Arabic texts, and the new type. The Propaganda Press was founded in 1622 and in 1626 a true printing house was established together with a foundry named after the Congregatio. To its stock were added exotic types from the Stamperia Vaticana. The Press printed missals, grammars, dictionaries and Alphabeta.Schnurrer, Bibliotheca Arabica, pp.38-39.See Graf IV 175.

Bernard Cesi (Caesius) was born in Modena of a noble family. He entered the Jesuit order in 1599. He was attached to the court of Francis I, of the House of Este, Duke of Modena and Reggio from 1610 to 1658, when he died of the plague in Modena.The "Mineralogia" is a large compilation of mineralogical knowledge, with much on paleontological specimens as then known, and also on gemstones. Apparently he is the first author to employ the term 'mineralogy'.

      Évora, Manuel Carvalho, 1636. - Title page with typographical border. Woodcut headpieces, tailpieces, initials and factotum. (4 ll.), 326 [actually 328] pp., (12 ll.). 4°, contemporary speckled calf (label missing, rubbed), spine heavily gilt in six compartments (top compartment defective, hole in another compartment), text-block edges sprinkled red. Marginal dampstaining, somewhat browned. Slight worming to last 30 leaves, touching 1-2 letters on many pages. Still, overall in good condition. Eighteenth-century owners' signatures on front flyleaf (De Binis da Costa de [illegible]), title-page (Dr. Costa, D. Manuel Gomes) and verso of final leaf (Antonio Agostinho de Freitas Henriquez). ---- FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this book by a Jesuit author that discusses ethical and philosophical questions regarding politics, economics, and society. These questions, treated in the abstract, are similar to precepts one might find in courtesy books of the day. The volume ends with a 400-line poem on educational reforms by the Jesuits at the University of Évora.In the main text, Pereira is concerned with ethical dilemmas. For example: Is it greater wisdom to laugh about the human condition or to cry about it? Is it better to be subject to a ruler who was elected, or who inherited his position? Is it good or bad to be ruled by a woman? Should princes aim to be feared or loved? Which is more powerful, the desire for honor or for wealth? Where do leaders most shine, in battles on land or on sea?The final seven leaves contain a 400-verse neo-Latin poem by Pereira that describes the reforms instituted by the rector of Évora's College of Arts, P. Antonio de Sousa (d. 1635). The University of Évora was established by Cardinal D. Henrique in 1559, and was soon put under the control of the Jesuits. In the 1630s, the authority of the Jesuits was challenged by the rector of the University of Évora. Sousa's reforms defended the rights and privileges of the Jesuits against those attacks. According to the @Grande enciclopédia, this poem is a major source on those reforms. Pereira (1605-1681) was in an excellent position to recognize the importance of these reforms. He entered the Jesuit order in 1620, studied humanities at Évora and philosophy at Coimbra, before returning to Évora to work on his doctorate. For twenty years he taught at Évora. Pereira was one of the most learned Jesuits of his time, and his major works were much admired. His Latin-Portuguese-Spanish dictionary, @Prosodia in vocabularum trilingue latinam lusitanum, et castellanum digesta, first published at Évora, 1634, went through many editions. @Pallas togata is one of his rarest works.---- Arouca P105.

      The shipwreck of the Belem, and the journey along the western coast of Africa with Father Lobo. 1636. Lisbon. Lourenzo Craesbeeck. In 8vo (190 mm x 140 mm). 69 pp. + 1 ff. Full contemporary style calf by Imperio Graça, raised bands to spine, tolled in gilt, red lettering piece. Excellent copy, fresh and clean, with only minor scattered foxing spots.First edition. Cabreyra (d. 1638) was Captain of the Nossa Senhora de Belem, which was wrecked off the coast of the Cape of Good Hope in 1635 whilst returning to Portugal from India. The shipwreck news was widespread, not only for the losses, but for it carried a famous passenger: Jesuit Father Jerome Lobo, who after spending over 9 nine years in Abyssinia was returning to Europe; Lobo is the author of "A short relation of the River Nile, of its source and current" and was coming to report on the failure of the Ethiopian mission and the expulsion of the missionaries.The work narrates the events prior to the event, and the hardships and arrangements carried out by Cabreyra following the shipwreck; the building of smaller vessels to carry the survivals, the securing provisions and the dispatches from the King of Portugal, the journey along the western coast of Africa towards Angola, where the nearest Portuguese port was, amongst other interesting affairs.Another edition was also published in 1636 by Craesbeck, with a different collation, priority between both can´t be established; ca. 100 years later, Brito would include this work in his Historia Tragico-Maritima. Extremely rare, no copies have appeared at auction in the last 50 years.Mendelssohn, pp. 242.

      The Anglo-Dutch Garden 73 & pp. 188-191; Hollstein (Dutch & Flemish), XXV, p. 293; Springer, Bibl. Overzicht, pp. 43-44. A magnificent series of detailed views of the house and gardens at Rosendael, in the Veluwe near Arnhem, the estate of Baron Johan van Arnhem (1636-1717), close friend and hunting companion of the Dutch Stadhouder and King of England, William of Orange. The great tower, the only surviving part of the estate's mediaeval castle, is the largest of its kind in the Netherlands. The main palace was built in 1616, but after the estate came to Johan van Arnhem by marriage in 1667, he added some buildings. He devoted most of his attention to the gardens and waterworks, however, with their extensive cascades, fountains and statuary. The architect Jacob Pietersz. Roman appears to have been responsible for much of the work on the gardens, and the general title-page to the 6 parts of the Paradisus Oculorum gives the impression that he made the drawings, but those for Rosendael are elsewhere attributed to Jan van Call the elder (1656-1706). Although the palace survives, the gardens were revised several times in the 18th century and given a wholly new layout in 1837, so that the present views form an important record of their early form. A good and nearly untrimmed copy with many deckles intact, with a tear repaired across the corner of one view, some repairs in or near the gutter folds (not approaching the plate edges), and occasional minor foxing or spots. An extensive and detailed set of views of one of the most sumptuous palaces and gardens of the Dutch golden age.
