Johannes JANSSONIUS (1588-1664)
Affascinante carta del Sud Est Asiatico, oltre che di grande interesse per la rappresentazione delle scoperte olandesi nell?Australia settentrionale; vi è raffigurato il Sud Est Asiatico in generale, insieme alla Malaysia, alle Indie Orientali, l?Indonesia, Indocina, Maldive, la Cina meridionale con il delta del fiume Pearl, Taiwan e parte del Giappone. India quae Orientalis venne pubblicato per la prima volta nel 1638, e in una innumerevole serie di ristampe fino al 1700. La carta è decorata da tre cartigli, stemmi araldici che sormontano la dedica a Christophoro Thisio da parte di Henricus Hondius, 2 rose dei venti, un mostro marino e sei vascelli in navigazione. Johannes Janssonius (1588 - 1664), più comunemente noto come Jan Jansson, era un cartografo olandese che realizzò le sue prime carte in Francia e in Italia intorno al 1616; da lì prese avvio la sua carriera, fatta di innumerevoli pubblicazioni di carte, paragonabili alla produzione del Blaeu per qualità. Negli anni 30 del XVII secolo diede avvio ad una collaborazione col cognato, Henricus Hondius, insieme al quale pubblicò svariate edizioni dei più famosi di atlanti di Mercator/Hondius/Jansson. Dimensioni 490x395. An important, attractive and rare Dutch map of South East Asia, showing Dutch discoveries in northern Australia . The map includes South East Asia in general with all of Malaysia, the East Indies, the Philippines, Indonesia, Indochina, Maledives and Southern China with the Pearl River Delta, Taiwan, and part of Japan.

ALDROVANDI, U.
Bononiae, apud C. Ferronium, 1638. Folio (340 x 225mm). pp. (8), 767, (1), (44), with engraved title and about 700 woodcuts. Contemporary vellum, spine in 7 compartments, blind stamped centre pieces on covers. A very fine copy of 'the first work of literature dealing with insects, thus finally establishing entomology, and especially systematic entomology as a science' (Smith, R.F. History of Entomology, p. 85). Aldrovandi's complete natural history works consist of 11 works, he spent 45 years amassing the material. The volumes on birds and the present volume on insects were completed by himself, the others by his pupils. The woodcuts of the insects are of great beauty and accuracy. "Although Aldrovandi is not identified with any revolutionary discoveries, his work as a teacher and as the author of volumes that constitute an irreplaceable cultural patrimony earns him a place among the fathers of modern science" (D.S.B. I, p. 110). Nissen ZBI, 67.

DELAFLEUR,N.G.
[Paris], Pierre Mariette, 1638. Small oblong 4to (190 x 290mm). Engraved throughout, title-portrait within border of flowers, 12 plates of flowers, all by Delafleur (some neat marginal repairs, old crease marks with very small tears to plates numbered 8 and 9, all but two plates pricked for transfer or showing the marks from an adjoining plate). Contemporary limp vellum (neatly rebacked, ties lacking). First edition of this rare set of decorative plates, the de Belder copy (a variant before the addition of the privilege) is the only copy we could trace having been sold in the last 20 years. Born in Lorraine, Delafleur was known in Rome, where he worked for Cardinal Barberinni, as 'Monsù Fiore' Monsieur Flower) in recognition of his great skill in depicting floral subjects. The present work, unlike many other 17th century botanical works, does not seem to be based on any earlier models.The plates each feature two or more varieties or species, with six plates depicting small bunches tied with ribbons around their stalks. Bulbous plants predominate (daffodils, narcissi, jonquils, tulips, blue-bells, lilies and fritillaries) but the work also includes irises, carnations and roses. Hunt 232 ('rather rare'); Berlin Kat. II, 4416 (incomplete); Thieme-Becker 3:578.

L'HÔSPITAL, Guillaume François Antoine, Marquis de.
A fine sammelband comprising the first editions of the first books on the differential and integral calculus, respectively. <br/><br/> "It was through his wide network of acquaintances in various European countries that Leibniz put into effect all his strategies for the spread of his analysis. The presence first of Jacob Hermann, the favourite pupil of Jacob Bernoulli, and then of Nicolaus I Bernoulli, the nephew of the Bernoulli brothers, as professors of mathematics in Padua was one outlet ... In France it was through the Oratorian circle of Nicolas Malebranche (1638-1715) that Johann Bernoulli introduced in 1691 the Leibnizian calculus. His lessons to the Marquis de l'Hôpital led to the draft of the first treatise of differential calculus (1696) [first offered work], and it was under the influence of Malebranche that some years later appeared the first works on the integral calculus by Louis Carré in 1700 [second offered work] and Charles René Reyneau in 1708. The spread and acceptance of the Leibnizian calculus was transferred in this way to the wide public, through the manuals and textbooks written for students at universities or ecclesiastical colleges." (Landmark Writings in Western Mathematics, p.56).<br/><br/> "Following the classical custom, [the first work] starts with a set of definitions and axioms... The difference (differential) is defined as the infinitely small portion by which a variable quantity increases or decreases continuously. Of the two axioms, the first postulates that quantities which differ only by infinitely small amounts may be substituted for … [Click Below for Full Description]

SULLY (Max. de Bethune, duc de)
à Amstelredam, chez Alethinosgraphe de Clearetimelee, & Graphexechon de Pistariste, à l'enseigne des trois Vertus couronnées d'A in folio, de 4ff.-535pp. & 4ff.-459pp., titres à la marque des 3 vertus aquarellée en rouge et vert, pl. veau marbré époque, dos orné, bel exemplaire. Contrefaçon de l'édition originale, longtemps confondue avec la véritable et rarissime originale. De l'édition aux 3 vertus (aux 3 verts U), on distingue de nos jours 3 tirages différents: la véritable originale imprimée à petit nombre au château de Sully, une contrefaçon de Rouen 1649, et une autre contrefaçon (celle-ci) qui se distingue par une différence de collation, la composition étant plus compacte. Ici le parallèle de César avec Henri IV est bien imprimé en caractères romains comme dans l'originale. Ces mémoires sont un document capital pour l'histoire du règne d'Henri IV. Maximilien de Béthune, duc de Sully rédigea ses Mémoires de 1611 à 1617, alors qu'il était en disgrâce. La rédaction en est particulière, puisque les secrétaires de Sully sont censés lui raconter les détails, même les plus cachés, de sa vie. ¶ Brunet V.589 - Bourgeois & André Sources Hist. de France n° 2574 - Einaudi n° 5506 - Kress, 537

"The two sciences with which the book principally deals are the engineering science of strength of materials and the mathematical science of kinematics...Galileo's Two New Sciences underlies modern physics not only because it contains the elements of the mathematical treatment of motion, but also because most of the problems that came rather quickly to be seen as problems amenable to physical experiment and mathematical analysis were gathered together in this book with suggestive discussions of their possible solution."-D.S.B., V, p. 245.

Paris: late 18th century. This superb hand-colored engraving, Plate 104, Vue du parterre du Chateau de Rambouillet, from the late 18th century measures 19.75” x 26.75” and is in excellent condition. Illustrated in this engraving are the gardens of Chateau Rambouillet, a castle in the town of Rambouillet, France. The vibrant clothing of the noblemen and women illustrated in heightened by the lush green gardens which they stand among, taking and interacting. The gardens and small ponds are shown in great perspective and seem to be endless. The pale colors of the sky add to the depth of the image and the overall luscious scene. During the mid to late 18th century, the trend amongst European artists, printmakers and publishers, was to visually record their own country's architectural treasures, and the natural beauty of their gardens. Motivated by national pride, artists and printmakers began to publish views of their most-admired estates and grounds. In addition to being a visual record of the countryside, they were meant to encourage public recognition of national treasures. These prints were meant to be purchased by the English and foreign tourists whom desired a memento of their travels. Louis XIV (1638-1715), the Sun King of France, had grown up during a civil war between rival factions of aristocrats, known as the Fronde, and wanted a site where he could control the French government by absolute rule. Louis settled on the royal hunting lodge at Versailles , which had been acquired by Louis XIII in 1632, and over the following decades expanded it into the largest palace an … [Click Below for Full Description]

The eighteen engraved half-length portraits are all dated 1637 and signed by Pedro Perete (or Perrete, d. 1639). Son and pupil of Pieter Perret (b. Antwerp 1555; d. Madrid c. 1625), the younger Perete was one of the second generation of Flemish engravers working in Spain. The portrait of the Conde Duque de Olivares, bearing the motto "Sicut oliva fructifera" instead of his name, is signed "Ex Archetypo Velazquez. Herman Panneels f. Matriti 1638". The portrait of Philip IV was also executed in 1638 by Panneels, after a painting by Diego Velázquez. Panneels, born in Antwerp (fl. Madrid 1638-50), is considered one of the best engravers in seventeenth-century Spain. The first eulogy, much longer than the others (ll. 7-18), is about King Philip IV. The others are of popes and saints (Leo I, St. Gregory I, Nicolas I, … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Belgien - Schloß Chokier].
[Lüttich], o. Dr., 1638.. 69, (1) SS., l. w. Bl. Geheftet. 4to.. Außerordentlich seltene gedruckte Quelle zum Prozeß des Paul de Berlo(z) gegen Francisque de Belgioso (Beljoyeuse), in welchem ersterer sein Erbrecht auf das Schloß Chokier südwestlich von Lüttich (letztlich erfolgreich) gegen Belgioso erstritt. Paul de Berlo war 1592 noch als Kind von Marie de Senzeille und ihrem zweiten Gatten Paul de Stor adoptiert und zum Alleinerben auf Chokier eingesetzt worden. Nach dem Tode de Stors heiratete Marie 1596 den Mailänder Militär und Haudegen Jean-Jacques Barbiano de Belgioso. Der jähzornige und brutale Wüstling, dessen Untaten Legende waren, schaffte den Ziehsohn Paul nach Italien, sperrte seine Gattin in einen Kerker, um ihr ein Testament zu seinem Gunsten abzupressen, und erstickte sie zuletzt 1602 mit einem Kissen. Er beerbte seine Gattin und heiratete hernach Anne de Poitiers. Nach seinem Tode 1626 fiel Chokier an diese, die das Erbe aber an ihres Mannes Neffen, Ludovic Barbiano de Belgioso abtrat; nach dessen Tod im Folgejahr fiel es an seinen Bruder, Francisque de Belgioso. Gegen diesen klagte der nunmehr aus Italien zurückgekehrte Paul de Berlo sein Erbrecht ein. Zum Erfolg verhalf seiner Klage nicht zuletzt das Gebetbuch der Marie, in welches die Gefangene mit ihrem eigenen Blut ihre Leiden aufgezeichnet hatte. 1636 wurde Paul das Schloß Chokier zugesprochen, doch Belgioso focht das Urteil an: In der vorliegenden Flugschrift versuchte er, die Ansprüche seines Gegners zu diskreditieren. Erst 1639 konnte Paul de Berlo das Schloß endgültig in Besitz nehmen. - Titel et … [Click Below for Full Description]

ARAUJO, Juan [i.e. João] Salgado de.
Madrid, Juan Sanchez, 1638. - Small typographical ornament on title page. Woodcut headpiece. Woodcut tailpiece. Typographical tailpiece. Woodcut initials. (6), 68 ll. 4°, contemporary limp vellum (somewhat worn, minor stains). Paper flaw to leaf A3, affecting a few words of text; overall in very good condition. A few early marginal annotations. ---- FIRST and ONLY EDITION. This history of the Vasconcelos family traces their origins to Dom Dinis through his son, Dom Pedro, Conde de Barcelos. The house of Vasconcelos is also traced to the Conde don Rodrigo Velloso, son of don Pedro Frojas, Conde de Traua in Galicia, brother of Conde don Fernan Paez de Trastamara, second husband of Dona Teresa, mother of Dom Afonso Henriques. Another ilustrious ancestor was said to be Martin Moniz, grandson of Count Osorio de la Lamia. The author demonstrates various other relationships between the house of Vasconcelos and the royal families of Portugal and Castile, as well as links with many of the most prominent families of the Iberian Peninsula. Members of the family held posts such as Master of the Order of Santiago, and governor of Ceuta. The work contains a few lines of poetry in Portuguese.The author, a native of Monção, was a presbyter and doctor of canon law at Coimbra University. After 1640 he became a staunch defender of the rights of D. João IV to the Portuguese throne. Dom Francisco Manuel de Melo referred to him as a "douto escritor", and according to the @Grande enciclopédia he was an "escrupuloso linhagista".---- Moreno Garbayo, @La imprenta em Madrid (1626-1650) 1867.

Herbert, George
Cambridge: 1638: Printed by T. Buck, and R. Daniel, printers to the Universitie of Cambridge. Printed: 1638. 1593-1633 Duodecimo, 5.4 x 3.25 inches. Fifth edition. Ù4, A-H12, I2. This is a very pleasing copy. The fore eges are trimmed a bit close, but this is a fault that originated in the seventeenth century when this binding was originally executed. The leaves are very white and crisp throughout. The boards are original speckled calfskin. The binding has been very competently rebacked sometime in the last fifty years. As the Anglican merges with the greater poet, so the 'quaint' writer merges with the metaphysical. Herbert had his share of the age's passion for anagrams and the like, which Addison was to condemn as 'false wit.' But the poet who could shape a poem in the physical likeness of 'The Altar' or 'Easter Wings,' had, even more than most of his fellows, a functional sense of meter and rhythm. The technical experimentalist and master was, we remember, a skilled and devoted musician. The movement of his verse, taut or relaxed, can suggest all his fluctuating moods, from self-will or weakness to joyful surrender and assured strength. He moves from this world to the world of spirit 'As from one room t'another,' or dwells simultaneously in both, and it is in keeping with that habit of mind, and with metaphysical origins in general, that many of his poems should be allegorical anecdotes, transfigured emblems."

[including second engraved title], 181 pp.; (1) f. [third engraved title], 1-60; 67-86 [i.e., 79] pp., 36 plates and 6 maps. Bound in contemporary vellum over pasteboards, edges of covers frayed and corners exposed; blank right corner of title and of preliminaries slightly dog-eared, some leaves a bit dusty; but generally an exceptionally fresh, altogether unsophisticated copy. Excellent. The preferred large format French language 3rd edition. This is a large and absolutely genuine example of this classic illustrated travelogue to the East and West Indies, termed by Lach the most important of the firsthand accounts published independently of the great travel collections (I.198). No other book contained so much practical intelligence on the East and West Indies as Linschoten's. Unhindered by the censorship that affected writers from the Iberian Peninsula, the author included such information as sailing directions, physical descriptions of countries, and statistics on commerce and trade. The work was held in such high regard that for nearly a century, every Dutch ship headed for the East carried a copy of a Dutch edition of Linschoten. This copy of the third French edition (esteemed for its plates; see below) is rather unusual for being in an entirely contemporary condition in its original binding, and entirely unsophisticated internally.

1638. [Paris], Pierre Mariette, 1638. Small oblong 4to (190 x 290mm). Engraved throughout, title-portrait within border of flowers, 12 plates of flowers, all by Delafleur (some neat marginal repairs, old crease marks with very small tears to plates numbered 8 and 9, all but two plates pricked for transfer or showing the marks from an adjoining plate). Contemporary limp vellum (neatly rebacked, ties lacking). First edition of this rare set of decorative plates, the de Belder copy (a variant before the addition of the privilege) is the only copy we could trace having been sold in the last 20 years. Born in Lorraine, Delafleur was known in Rome, where he worked for Cardinal Barberinni, as 'Monsu Fiore' Monsieur Flower) in recognition of his great skill in depicting floral subjects. The present work, unlike many other 17th century botanical works, does not seem to be based on any earlier models.The plates each feature two or more varieties or species, with six plates depicting small bunches tied with ribbons around their stalks. Bulbous plants predominate (daffodils, narcissi, jonquils, tulips, blue-bells, lilies and fritillaries) but the work also includes irises, carnations and roses. Hunt 232 ('rather rare'); Berlin Kat.

Paris: late 18th century. This superb hand-colored engraving from the late 18th century, Veue et Perspective du Chateau de Versailles du coste de l'orangerie, measures 19.75” x 26.75” and is in excellent condition with light discoloration around the edges. This engraving illustrates the king's court riding back to Versailles from a hunt. This lively scene shows the horses and hounds in motion, coming in from all angles of the plate, and gives a sweeping view of Versailles and the orangery, or lush gardens of the property. The noblemen are all finely dressed in rich colors and the lush greenery of the trees and deep blues of the ponds and fountains show the great expertise of the artist. During the mid to late 18th century, the trend amongst European artists, printmakers and publishers, was to visually record their own country's architectural treasures, and the natural beauty of their gardens. Motivated by national pride, artists and printmakers began to publish views of their most-admired estates and grounds. In addition to being a visual record of the countryside, they were meant to encourage public recognition of national treasures. These prints were meant to be purchased by the English and foreign tourists whom desired a memento of their travels. Louis XIV (1638-1715), the Sun King of France, had grown up during a civil war between rival factions of aristocrats, known as the Fronde, and wanted a site where he could control the French government by absolute rule.
