DESCARTES, René.
A fine copy of the important first Latin edition of Descarte's </i>Géométrie</i> - designated by John Stuart Mill as "the greatest single step ever made in the progress of the exact sciences" Originally published in French as an appendix to the <i>Discours de la Méthode</i> (1637), Descartes' coordinate geometry was ignored in several edition of the <i>Discours</i>. It was due to Van Schooten's Latin translation, with his extensive commentaries, that Cartesian geometry was widely adopted by the mathematical community, and thus paved the way for Newton and Leibniz. Landmark Writtings in Western Mathematics no 1 (citing both the 1637 original and the 1649 edition).<br/><br/> "It was from Schooten's edition of the <i>Géométrie</i> that contemporary mathematicians lacking proficiency in French first learned Cartesian mathematics. In this mathematics they encountered a systematic presentation of the material, not the customary, more classificatory approach that essentially listed single propositions, for the most part in unconnected parallel. Further, in the Cartesian scheme the central position was occupied by algebra, which Descartes considered to be the only 'precise form of mathematics'." (DSB). <br/><br/> "[Schooten] wrote a commentary on the text, explaining and completing points where proofs or steps were missing; he laid foundations; he linked the text to the theory in other publications; he simplified arguments; and made corrections, he systemized the contents, he widened the scope of the text (i.e., he made generalizations, answered questions that Descartes had left op … [Click Below for Full Description]

DELLA BELLA STEFANO
Firenze 1637 - Acquaforte, 1637, firmata in lastra in basso a sinistra. Da un soggetto di Alfonso Parigi. Dalla serie "Le nozze degli Dei". Buona prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, rifilata al rame o con sottilissimi margini, nel complesso in ottimo stato di conservazione.Firenze 1610 - 1664Stefano della Bella fu uno degli incisori più interessanti e originali nella Firenze del XVII secolo e può considerarsi l'unico geniale continuatore dell'opera del Callot. La sua educazione artistica ebbe inizio a Firenze nella bottega degli orafi Gasparo Mola e Orazio Vanni ad una precisione di segno tipica dell'orafo resterà caratteristica del suo stile. Studiò poi presso Giovanni Battista Vanni e forse anche presso il Cantagallina e Cesare Dandini, ma ben presto, come afferma il Baldinucci "posta da parte la pittura, si diede tutto all'intaglio". Il suo vero maestro può considerarsi Jacques Callot, l'incisore francese che soggiornò a lungo a Firenze lasciando una forte impronta nel panorama artistico della città.Lorenzo de' Medici prese a proteggere il piccolo Stefanino,e dal 1633 al 1636 lo invitò a Roma, dove l'artista studiò realizzando numerose copie dall'antico,da Polidoro e dove incise la sua prima opera importante: l'Entrata a Roma dell'ambasciatore di Polonia Giorgio Ossolinsky nel 1633.Nel 1639 Stefano partì per Parigi, con una pensione di Lorenzo dè Medici, e dove si trattenne fino al 1650 circa.Questi sono gli anni più importanti della sua carriera durante i quali lavorò insieme ad Israel Sil vestre, con gli editori Langlois, Ciartres e Pierre Mariet … [Click Below for Full Description]

Morton, Thomas:
Amsterdam: Jacob Frederick Stam, 1637.. 188,[3]pp. Small quarto. 20th-century brown morocco, gilt, a.e.g., gilt innder dentelles, by Riviere & Son. Minor toning and soiling to text. Near fine. In a brown half morocco and cloth slipcase. One of the classic accounts of the early settlement of New England, looked to increasingly by modern historians and anthropologists for its unbiased and detailed accounts of Indian life in early New England, descriptions of flora and fauna, and internecine struggles among the colonists. Morton first came to New England in 1622 and lived there until his expulsion by the Plymouth colonists a decade later. He was particularly sympathetic to the way of life of the Indians and provides extensive descriptions of customs, hunting, planting, artifacts, and lifestyles in the first section of the work. The second part provides a remarkable account of the landscape and ecology of New England (William Cronon draws heavily on Morton in his pioneering CHANGES IN THE LAND). The final section of Morton's account is the most famous historically, since it gives an account of his long and often amusing feud with the Plymouth Colony and a description of his separate settlement at Merry-Mount, where his close association with the Indians of the area and open defiance of the laws of the Plymouth settlers provided one of the more colorful episodes in early colonial New England. Morton's work is very scarce on the market, only three copies having appeared at auction in the last thirty years. A book of the greatest importance, perhaps the best single account … [Click Below for Full Description]

CATS, Jacob (1577-1660)
Hendrick vander Putte, Papier en Boekverkooper op't Water, in de Lootsman [n.d.], t' Amsterdam - Early eighteenth century edition (based on the imprint) of the Dutch poet and politician's rhymed dissertations on marriage and conjugal fidelity, first published in Dordrecht, in 1637. 16mo: [44], 673, [3]pp, with an engraved title page (in addition to the letterpress title) to the first work, two engraved full-page portraits (one of Anna Maria Schurmans and one of Jacob Cats), and a full-page allegorical engraving, 'Het Derde Deel,' in addition to 51 half-page engravings in the text. Contemporary vellum, with 'J. Cats' in manuscript to the spine. The binding is soiled but sound, the pages and plates clean, but with occasional browning, finger-soiling and mild staining. Marginal loss to S3, affecting neither the text nor the plate on p. 234. Contemporary ownership inscriptions to both fly leaves. Cats was one of the distinguished Dutch writers of Holland's golden age, but his Orangist and Calvinistic opinions set him apart from the liberal school of Amsterdam poets. Still, for nearly two centuries, he enjoyed enormous popularity. In this, perhaps his most important work, Cats treats human behavior and society in all its aspects through the lens of marriage, both human and spiritual (the marriage of Christ and His Church). Examples are taken from the Bible (Adam and Eve, David and Abigail) and from classical and modern authors (Cyrus and Aspasia, Marc Anthony and Cleopatra). Also included are discussions of marriage after rape, the breaking of marriage bonds, adultery, and the l … [Click Below for Full Description]

[BERNINI] / LASENA, Pietro
Rome: Giacomo Faccioti, 1637. Rare first edition of this meditation inspired by the death of the author's parents in a shipwreck, including (rather unexpectedly) the first engraved image of Bernini's Barcaccia fountain, commissioned by Urban VIII and completed in 1629. This also appears to be the earliest reference in print to the Barcaccia: the earliest reference known to Hibbard and Jaffe was in Toti's 1638 guidebook, a year later. Since the symbolism of the fountain's double-prowed ship (visible in our engraving) is a matter of considerable debate, it is interesting that Lasena notes (pp. 74-77) that he and his friends often walked past the fountain in the evenings and discussed its meaning. He prints a poem in Greek written at the time of the fountain's completion by the noted scholar and theologian Leone Allacci, and several poems by Gaspar de Simeonibus, one of which had won the favor of the pope himself. There is no mention in Cleombrotus of a story that apparently became popular in the 19th c., which linked the ship (which appears to be sinking) to a 1598 flood of the Tiber that left a ship washed up in the Piazza di Spagna, where the Barcaccia fountain now stands.According to the surviving documents the Barcaccia was constructed under the direction of Pietro Bernini, but Hibbard and Jaffe argue persuasively that the design was an early work of his son Gian Lorenzo, showing an emblematical concetto that is typically Berninesque. They consider the Barcaccia the first Roman fountain truly in the Baroque style.The Cleombrotus is a meditation on death by shipwreck or dr … [Click Below for Full Description]

Drayton, Michael
London: 1637: W. Stansby for J. Smethwick. Printed: 1637. 1563-1631 Octavo, 5 1/4 x 3.25 in. A-X12 This copy is bound in nineteenth century full red morocco, with gilt spine and edges Born within a year before Shakespeare, and dying when Milton was already twenty-three, he worked hard at poetry during nearly sixty years of his long life, and was successful in keeping in touch with the poetical progress of a crowded and swiftly-moving period. His earliest published work tastes of Tottel's Miscellany: before he dies, he suggests Carew and Suckling, and even anticipates Dryden. This quality of forming, as it were, a map or mirror of his age gives him a special interest to the student of poetry, which is quite distinct from his peculiar merits as a poet. This edition of the poems contains "The baron's wars", "England's heroical epistles", "The legend of Robert Duke of Normandy", "The legend of Matilda", "The legend of Pierce Gaveston", "The legend of Great Cromwell" and "Idea".

Only St.Paul & Pentateuch were published while he was still in Belgium, he was then called to Rome where he was Professor of Hebrew and Scripture and where he spent the last 20 years teaching and editing his commentaries until his death in 1637. This, as several of his other works were only published after his death and then were in almost continual print as "They explain not only the literal, but also the allegorical, tropological, and anagogical sense of the sacred text, and furnish a large number of quotations from the Fathers and the later interpreters of Holy Writ" [Catholic Encyc.]

Crompton was a bencher of the Middle Temple during the reign of Henry VIII and the author of several notable contributions to the legal literature. First published in 1594, L'Authoritie et Iurisdiction is considered to be his principal work. It is essentially a digest of the Year Books and other cases applicable to the subject. On a broader scale, it offers legal justification for the creation of a rigidly hierarchical "natural" society governed by a powerful monarch. This desire, articulated by Bodin among others, was common to several conservatives in England and Europe during the Late Renaissance. This copy probably belonged to Thomas Chitty [1802-1878], the eminent lawyer, teacher and legal reforme … [Click Below for Full Description]
