[ALEXANDRE, Noël].
613 [= 495], [1]; 193, [3] pp.An Italian edition, published in the same year as the French original, of a treatise aimed at the Jesuits Michel le Tellier and Charles le Gobien. The debate between the Dominicans and the Jesuits, known as the Rites Controversy, had arisen over the question whether the Chinese rituals used to honour ancestors and Confucius constituted idolatry. The Jesuits partly adapted to a Chinese lifestyle, and held that converts should be allowed to continue to participate in the rites for Confucius. The Dominican refused any adaptation to local custom and were appalled by the Jesuit practices. The French theologian and church historian Noël Alexandre (1639-1724) joined the Dominicans in 1654 and taught philosophy at the Paris convent Saint-Jacques. According to Weller, the French original edition was printed in Amsterdam. The lay-out of the present edition, however, is rather a-typical for books printed in Amsterdam.Fine copy.l De Backer & Sommervogel III, col. 1513; Cordier, Sinica, col. 877; cf. Löwendahl 229 (another edition).

IGNATIUS a Jesus (Carlo LEONELLI).
(2), 60 pp.Extremely rare first edition of this valuable Persian grammar printed in Rome on the presses of the "Propaganda Fide". The third work of this kind, preceded only by those of Louis de Dieu (Leiden 1639) and of Greaves (London 1649). Willems notes that G. B. Raimondi, as early as 1614, produced a grammar in Rome for the use of missionaries which remained virtually unknown in the west, but this existed only in manuscript. The grammars of Greaves and of the present author were both "largely based on De Dieu" (Smitskamp).Ignazio di Gesù (Carlo Leonelli) was a 17th century Italian missionary. He "belonged to the Order of Discalced Carmelites, and preached the Gospel in Turkey, Asia Minor, Armenia, and Persia, where he stayed over a long period. He especially tried to convert to the Catholic faith the so-called sectarians of Saint John (in eastern Mendaï). He returned to Rome in 1650" (cf. Hoefer). An account of his travels was included in the collection of Thevenot. His present small work, though not the work of an orientalist nor indeed a scholar, is still a true grammar based on elements collected during the author's journeys.Some light foxing and browning as common, slight abrasion on title (vignette very slightly affected), lacks final blank leaf. Old library shelfmark in ink to title. A very good copy.l Brunet III, 405. Schwab 863. Smitskamp 310 c.

MANDELSLO, Johann Albrecht von.
[32], 248, [36] pp.First complete German edition of the engaging travel account of Johann Albrecht von Mandelslo, edited by Adam Olearius. Mandelslo was attached to the diplomatic mission of the Duke of Holstein-Gottorp to Moscow and Persia. The ambassadors remained in Persia, but Mandelslo travelled further. He sailed from Hormuz to Surat and proceeded through Gujarat to Agra, Lahore, Goa, Bijapur and Malaba, visiting Ceylon, Madagascar, the Cape of Good Hope, and St. Helena on his return voyage in 1639. Before his death 5 years later, he had entrusted his rough notes to Olearius, who subsequently published them with a third part containing descriptions of the Coromandel coast, Bengal, Siam, Sumatra, Java, Borneo, Bantam, the Philippines, Formosa (Tai-wan), China and Japan. Some spotting and soiling and tears in the foot margin of pp. 31 and 137, but otherwise in very good condition.l Adelung II, pp. 306-308; Cordier, Japonica, cols. 362-368; Cox I, pp. 271-2; V. Gelder, Het Oost-Indisch avontuur, pp. 77, 99 & 263; Howgego, to 1800, M38.

BAYER, Johann.
Ulm: Johann Gorlini, 1639. Coloured, with gold highlights. 285 x 380mm. The constellation of Canis Major, engraved by Alexander Mair for Bayer's 'Uranometria', a star atlas that shaped the way the heavens would be perceived for more than two centuries. Johann Bayer (1572-1625), an Augsburg lawyer, was an amateur astronomer in the years just prior to the invention of the telescope. His most important innovation was a new system of identifying stars by Greek and Roman letters, known today as the Bayer designation. His 'Uranometria' ('Measuring the Sky'), first published 1603, was the first celestial atlas to contain a chart of the stars in the Southern Hemisphere. WARNER: Bayer 1.

Zweite Ausgabe, durchgehend mit griechisch-lateinischem Paralleltext, zuerst im Vorjahr 1638 in Rom erschienen. Der neuplatonische Philosoph Salustios lebte im vierten Jahrhundert und verfasste diese Abhandlung zur Bedeutung der Götter vermutlich im Rahmen der Bestrebungen des Kaisers Julian die alte pagane Religion gegen das sich etablierende Christentum zu stärken. Der Text war lange unbekannt und wurde erst von Leo Allatius (Leone Allacci; 1586-1669), in den Manuskriptbeständen der Vatikanischen Bibliothek gefunden. Herausgegeben und übersetzte wurde er von dem aus Hamburg stammenden Philologen Lukas Holste (1596-1661), der Sekretär und Bibliothekar des Kardinals Francesco Barberini, später dann Bibliothekar des Vatikans war (ADB XII, 776). - ANGEBUNDEN: 2.

The lice are shown with their host scratching his head and the leeches in use for bloodletting on a woman's arm. The beaver looks rather like a wolf with a fish body for a tail. The woodcut of a hedgehog is reused to illustrate the sea urchin! Bossche gives a description of each animal, quoting sources from antiquity to the seventeenth century, and then discusses its medical uses.With owners' inscriptions, owner's stamp and an occasional marginal manuscript note.

With an engraved title-page by Jérôme David, 7 engraved plates and several woodcut illustrations and diagrams. Contemporary mottled calf, gold-tooled spine. [1], [1 blank], [1], [1 blank], [7], [1 blank], 292, [8] pp. First edition of a treatise on the duties of a fort's commander by "France's most original fortification design theorist since Jean Errard" (Wolfe). In 50 chapters De Ville describes aspects such as how to choose a governor, how he should be introduced to the officers and soldiers and what knowledge he should have of fortifications. One of the chapters is devoted to what the governor should make of the various nationalities that make up his army. Of the mercenaries, De Ville considered the Swiss to be the most reliable (if paid on time), Italians he considered fickle, Germans cruel and the French lax and undisciplined. The Dutch and Flemish should be closely watched, for they have a natural hatred towards the French.With a contemporary owner's inscription and a few contemporary annotations. Binding worn and front hinge cracked. Margins trimmed, very slightly shaving some of the plates; internally otherwise in very good condition. Jähns, pp. 1132-1134; Jordan 3950; Sloos, Warfare 08023; Wolfe, Walled towns and the shaping of France, p. 144.

MYDORGE, Claude
Paris: Jean Dedin, 1639. First complete edition of Mydorge's work on conic sections, intended to provide the geometrical basis for the study of optics (books I & II had been published in 1631). Mydorge's work on conic sections contains hundreds of problems published for the first time, as well as a multitude of ingenious and original methods that later geometers frequently used, usually without citing their source . . . In his study of conic sections Mydorge continued the work of Apollonius, whose methods of proof he refined and simplified . . . Mydorge asserts that if from a given point in the plane of a conic section radii to the points of the curve are drawn and extended in a given relationship, then their extremities will be on a new conic section similar to the first. This statement constitutes the beginnings of an extremely fruitful method of deforming figures; it was successfully used by La Hire and Newton, and later by Poncelet and, especially, by Chasles, who named it 'deformation homographique'. Mydorge posed and solved the following problem in [book] III: On a given cone place a given conic section a problem that Apollonius had solved only for a right cone. Mydorge was also interested in geometric methods used in approximate construction, such as that of a regular heptagon. Another problem that Mydorge solved by approximation, although he did not clearly indicate his method, was that of transforming a square into an equivalent regular polygon possessing an arbitrary number of sides" (DSB). Mydorge (1585-1647) belonged to one of France's most illustrious families. … [Click Below for Full Description]
