        Virginiae partis australis et Floridae....

      1639. Una bellissima mappa che è una delle mappe più interessanti del sud - est americano. La mappa si basa sulla carta di Hondius Jodocus con qualche aggiornamento. Ciò dimostra l'influenza della mappa Hondius, e il suo modo mappa portato ad una larga diffusione sia le informazioni corrette e gli errori. La mappa di Hondius era una combinazione di informazioni provenienti da due mappe cinquecentesche, una delle Carolina, e una della Florida / Georgia. Questi sono stati combinati, e nel processo sono stati introdotti molti errori, non ultimo dei quali fu il raddrizzamento di fiume St. John, in modo che scorreva da un inesistente lago situato a nord - ovest della foce del fiume. A beautiful map that is one of the most interesting maps of the American southeast. The map is based upon the Jodocus Hondius' map of the same area - Jansson was Hondius' son - in - law - with some updating. This shows the influence of the Hondius map, and the way his map led to an extensive dissemination of both its correct information and its errors. Hondius's map was a combination of information from two sixteenth century maps, one of the Carolinas, and one of the northern Florida/Georgia region. These were combined, and in the process many errors were introduced, not the least of which was the straightening out of the St. John's River so that it flowed from an non - existent lake located to the northwest of the mouth of the river. This lake, which would become Lake Apalachy, appeared on this and other maps well into the eighteenth century. Jansson's map is updated from the Hondius version, including coats - of - arms to indicate the spheres of influence claimed by the French in the Georgia region and the British in the Carolinas. Jansson follows Hondius in the south, but he more accurately depicts the coast in the Carolinas, based on Hessel Gerritsz's map of 1631, and has a more correct image of the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay, indicating for the first time "Newport nesa".This map shines not only in its interesting cartographic history, but also in its decorative appeal. It is a particularly fine example of the aesthetics of 17th - century Dutch cartography. The elegant calligraphy and compass roses combine with the ships in the sea and the rhumb lines in wonderful embellishment. The fully colored title and scale cartouches, the latter which shows naked putti and the former half - naked natives, add a final flourish that makes the map a delight to look at. All in all an historic map that is a very fine decorative example of the great age of Dutch cartography Amsterdam Amsterdam 500 380

Bound in recent calf with gilt bands to spine, and morocco label. A classic work of seventeenth century surgery, and scare in such a near complete state. The title page has been relaid, repairs to the margins of the second leaf, the first few leaves are frayed at the edges. A few sentences have been underlined in a near contemporary pen, some later pencil marginal notes.

Last leaf repaired with some loss, wear to the edges of the plates. Later leaves with some fraying to the edge, browning in a few places Despite the defects as notes a good example of a scarce work, rarely found with the four engraves plates or surgical instruments.

Later half calf, spine in 5 compartments with red and blue gilt lettered label. Second Bologna edition of this work on quadrupeds, which was published posthumously as many of his other works. The volume is devoted to 'solid-hooved' quadrupeds, such as horses, zebras, elephants, centaurs, etc. and features several fine woodcuts, many from drawings by Jacopo Ligozzi. Included among the illustrations are cuts of a unicorn horn and a remarkable one of petrified elephant's catarrh. "Although Aldrovandi is not identified with any revolutionary discoveries, his work as a teacher and as the author of volumes that constitute an irreplacable cultural patrimony earns him a place among the fathers of modern science. Perhaps most importantly he was among the first to attempt to free the natural sciences from the stifling influence of the authority of textbooks, for which he substituted, as far as possible, direct study and observation of the animal, vegetable, and mineral worlds" (D.S.B.

        The Mirrour Which Flatters Not. Dedicated to their Maiesties of Great Britaine, by Le Sieur de la Serre, Historiographer of France. Enriched with Faire Figures. Transcrib'd English from the French, by T.C. And Devoted to the Well-Disposed Readers

      London: Printed by E.P. for R. Thrale, 1639. First edition in English of this classic meditation on fame and death, first published in French in 1632. Picking up where the medieval Dance of Death tradition left off, the essay is packed with historical examples of leaders who knew (or did not know) how to die, ultimately striking a balance between the levelling effect of death and an emerging humanist ideal: "Remember that you are Men, but more marvelous without comparison, then the Sunne; since your Reason is a divine light." The four striking full-page plates depict great men grappling with their own mortality: "Philip King of Macedon comanded one of his Pages to Awake him every Morning, & Call aloud to him SIR Remember that You are a MAN." The Mirrour Which Flatters Not was printed by Elizabeth Purslowe, widow of the printer George Purslowe, who produced almost 150 titles in her fourteen years running the press. STC 20490a. A near-fine copy of a compelling Renaissance conduct manual. Octavo, contemporary full calf rebacked, triple fillet border in blind and gilt, central gilt ornament to both boards, endpapers renewed (with window to front pastedown, revealing contemporary owner signature), edges speckled red. Complete with engraved frontispiece of Death, rare "Designe of the Frontispice" leaf, dedicatory material after title page, four full-page engraved plates, woodcut headpieces, translator's notes at rear, final imprimatur leaf.

      Johann Maire, Leiden 1639 - ____ Seconde édition complète du plus fameux ouvrage de l'histoire de la médecine. Illustré par 4 gravures sur cuivre sur 2 planches hors-texte. Cette édition contient les réfutations d'Emilio Parisano et de James Primrose.

De motu cordis " is probably the most important book in the history of medicine . The first edition of Harvey's little book has become one of the greatest rarities. It was printed on poor paper and almost always badly bound. Even the later editions are scarce. Although this is actually the third edition of 'De motu cordis', it is only the second complete edition. The second edition of 1635 was lacking parts of the introduction, chapters One and Sixteen, and the plates. In this edition, the text of Harvey's treatise is printed passage by passage alternatively with the refutations of Emilio Parisano, one of Harvey's many opponents. The criticism and denials of James Primrose, first published in 1630, are also included as a separate tract at the end of the book." Heirs of Hippocrates 256.

        America sive India Nova ad magnae Gerardi Mercatoris aui Vniversalis imitationem in compendium redacta

      [Amsterdam: Hondius, 1639. Copper-engraved map, French text on verso. Roundels at each corner with inset maps of the Gulf of Mexico, Cuba and Hispaniola, the remaining containing the cartouche. A fine example of one of the most celebrated maps of the Americas, the only printed map by Gerard Mercator's grandson Michael. Made by Gerard's grandson Michael to complete the atlas ( Atlantis Pars Altera ) begun by Gerard in 1584, this map is noted for its outstanding design and beauty, particularly its symmetrical configuration of circular insets and Mannerist flow of vines, flowers and leaves surrounding the circular map. Largely based on Rumold Mercator's world map of 1587, this map aptly reflects 16th-century knowledge, theories and suppositions regarding the New World. Naturally, most of this new knowledge was coastal, and configurations of any large areas were greatly hampered by the lack of a sound means of determining longitude. Nevertheless, the collective accomplishment of explorers and mapmakers represented in this map is astounding, showing in a generally correct way the vast extent of the New World. "A few of the most famous theories are still present: a large inland lake in Canada, two of the four islands of the North Pole, a bulge to the west coast of South America and the large southern continent" (Burden). The map appeared in 1595 and 1606 editions of the Atlantis Pars Altera , after which the plate was sold to Jodocus Hondius, who reissued the maps in varying editions through 1639. The present example includes French text on verso (confirming it to be a Hondius issue), but is apparently an unrecorded variant without a signature mark on verso.
