A collection of biographies of Spanish discoverers, conquistadors, and other figures involved in the early exploration and colonization of the New World, composed by a great grandson of Francisco Pizarro. Pizarro y Orellana, who held office in the Supreme Council of Castile, composed the work with the aim of simultaneously defending his ancestors, Francisco, Juan, and Gonzalo Pizarro, and laying claim to rights and grants due their descendants. "In order to hide this intention he cleverly included in his work biographies of other prominent discoverers such as Columbus (who by then was almost forgotten), Hernán Cortés, Alonso de Ojeda, and Diego García de Paredes. All the biographies are written in the same elevated tone of admiration, the narration being constantly enhanced with numerous erudite notes and comments in which the deeds of the subjects are favorably compared to those achieved by the great heroes of antiquity. In sharp contrast to the others, the biography of Diego de Almagro, the Pizarristas' great foe during the civil wars, is characterized by a poorly disguised tone of condemnation, his actions being shown as the tragic result of his personal shortcomings" - Delgado-Gomez.

        Prodromi catoptricorum et dioptricorum: sive conicorum operis ad abdita radii refexi et refracti mysteria praevii et facem praeferentis. Libri quatuor priores

      Paris: I. Dedin, 1639. First edition of all four books (books I & II had been published in 1631) of Mydorge&#146;s work on conic sections, intended to provide the geometrical basis for the study of optics. &#147;Mydorge&#146;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&#148; (DSB)<br/><br/>& & &#147;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. <br/><br/>& & &#147;Mydorge posed and solved the following problem in [book] III: &#145;On a given cone place a given conic section&#146; &#150; 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 &#150; although he did not clearly indicate his method &#150; was that of transforming a square into an equivalent regular polygon possessing an arbitrary number of sides&#148; (ibid.) <br/><br/>& & Mydorge (1585-1647) belonged to one of France&#39;s most illustrious families. &#147;Like Fermat, he belonged to that elite group of seventeenth-century scientists who pursued science as amateurs but nevertheless made contributions of the greatest importance to one or more fields of knowledge&#148; (ibid.) In 1625 Mydorge met Descartes, and they became firm friends and scientific collaborators. As Schuster has shown, in the following year Descartes and Mydorge almost certainly succeeded in formulating the mathematical law of refraction (Sasaki, p. 175). He was also a friend of Fermat and Mersenne, and in 1638 played a role in settling the dispute between Descartes and Fermat that had arisen when Fermat refuted Descartes&#146; <i>Dioptrique</i>. <br/><br/>& & Publication of the work was sponsored by Sir Charles Cavendish (?1595-1654), to whom the book is dedicated. Cavendish seems to have developed contacts with foreign mathematicians and by the summer of 1631 was corresponding with Mydorge. In 1671 John Collins wrote &#147;&#39;they complaine in france (as we doe here) that their Booksellers will not undertake to print mathematicall Bookes there, thence it came to passe that the four latter books of Mydorge were never printed, as the former had not been unless Sir Charles Cavendish had given 50 crownes as a Dowry with it&#39; (Collins to Gregory, 14 March 1671/2 in Newton, Correspondence 47). The manuscript of &#145;the four latter books&#146; was apparently taken to England by Cavendish&#146;s brother William and Thomas Wriothesley, Earl of Southampton, and then lost. The first four books were reissued in 1641 and 1660, and under the title <i>De sectionibus conicis</i> were included by Mersenne in his <i>Universae geometriae</i> (1644). <br/><br/>& & Albert et al 1636; B. O. A. C. P. 72; Sasaki, Descartes&#146; Mathematical Thought, Springer 2003 (pp. 172-5); Macclesfield 1507 (lacking four pages of preliminaries and the errata leaf); not in NUC; OCLC lists two copies only in America (Brigham Young and University of Miami, School of Medicine).& Folio: 352 x 230 mm. Contemporary limp villum. Pp. [vi], 308, [2, errata], without the leaf of dedication to Cavendish (which most copies lack), woodcut printer&#146;s device on title and numerous woodcut diagrams in text. Some gatherings with heavy browning, but in all a fine and unsophisticated copy.

        Summa Theologica SanctiThomae AquinatisDivinae VoluntatisInterpretis: Sacri Ordinis PraedicatorumIn Qua Ecclesiae Catholicae Doctrina Universa,et Quicquid in Veterum Patrum Monumentis est Dignum Obseruatu; Quicquid etiam vel olim vocatum est, vel hodie vocatur ab haereticis in controuersiam; id omne ut crudite, folide et dilucide, its pie atque fideliter explicatur.In Tres Partes Ab Auctore Suo Distributa

      Paris - Matturini Henault, 1639 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A scarce volume of this best-known work of Thomas Aquinas, intended as a manual for beginners in theology. It is a comprehensive compendium of all of the main theological teachings of the Church. It presents the reasoning for almost all points of Christian theology in the West. The Summa&#39;s topics follow a cycle: the existence of God; Creation, Man; Man&#39;s purpose; Christ; the Sacraments; and back to God. It is famous, among other things, for its five arguments for the existence of God, the Quinque viae (Latin: five ways). Throughout the work, Aquinas cites Sacred Scripture, Aristotle, Augustine of Hippo, and other Jewish, Greek, Roman, Christian, and Muslim scholars. The Summa Theologica is meant to summarize the history of the cosmos and provide an outline for the meaning of life itself. Thomas Aquinas (1225 1274), also Thomas of Aquin or Aquino, was an Italian Dominican priest of the Roman Catholic Church, and an immensely influential philosopher and theologian in the tradition of scholasticism. His influence on Western thought is considerable, and much of modern philosophy was conceived as a reaction against, or as an agreement with, his ideas, particularly in the areas of ethics, natural law, metaphysics, and political theory. In Latin. In three parts, with part two in two separately paginated parts. With vignette title pages to each part, illuminated capitals, and decorative head and tail pieces. Page 177 of partthree incorrectlypaginated as 277. Condition: Rebacked in calf with original boards. Externally worn, with some loss to the boards and tail of the spine. Front hinge has failed, and board is deatched (with title and front endpapers attached). Rear joint is starting. Some marks to boards also. Internally, firmly bound. Ink inscriptions to front endpapers. Loss to title and A2, affecting text. Pages have some scattered spotting throughout. Overall: Internally good but fair due to binding work needed.

        Lettera interamente autografa Torino, 27 marzo 1639

      Eccezionale lettera in francese interamente autografa, datata e firmata "Chretienne", relativa all'assedio di Chivasso, indirizzata a un gentiluomo di non sicura identificazione, forse "Mons(ieu)r de Malini". L'importante missiva riveste particolare interesse storico, in quanto riguarda la "Guerra dei Cognati" combattuta in Piemonte dai sostenitori della Spagna, capeggiati dal cardinale Maurizio di Savoia e dal principe Tommaso di Savoia-Carignano, contro la reggente Cristina che favoriva la fazione francese. Prezioso, nel documento, è l'accenno alla conquista della piazzaforte di Chivasso, antemurale di Torino, ad opera di Tommaso e del comandante delle truppe spagnole, Diego Felipe de Guzmàn marchese di Leganés. Le lettere autografe dei Savoia del '600 sono tutte di particolare rarità. Documento di 4 pagine di cui la prima fittamente redatta in chiara grafia, due bianche, l'ultima con indirizzo redatto dalla reggente, note tergali di altra mano e due sigilli in ceralacca nera con stemma della principessa impresso. Esemplare in ottimo stato conservativo, tracce di piegatura.

        Directorium generale uranometricum in quo trigonometriae logarithmicae fundamenta... [Including:] Tabvla trigonom. Logarithmica.Bologna: Nicolai Tebaldini, 1632.

      A fine copy of the rare first edition of the work which introduced the use of logarithms to Italy, containing the author's discovery of the expression for the area of a spherical triangle in terms of the spherical excess, and the first published work of the great mathematician of whom Galileo wrote, "few, if any, since Archimedes, have delved as far and as deep into the science of geometry." "From the standpoint of mathematics alone the Italian writer who influenced the science most in the 17th century was probably Bonaventura Cavalieri, ... [he] was one of the first to recognize the great value of logarithms" (Smith: <i>History of Mathematics</i>, p.362).<br/><br/> Cavalieri introduced and popularized logarithms throughout his country within a generation of Napier's invention of these "valuable auxiliaries to numerical calculation". The <i>Directorium</i> covers the construction, uses, and applications of logarithms, "together with noteworthy developments in trigonometry and applications to astronomy" (DSB). It also contains the author's discovery of the expression for the area of a spherical triangle in terms of spherical excess. Two extensive appendices offer logarithmic-trigonometric tables derived from those of Napier and Henry Briggs, with logarithms of sines, versines (<i>sinus versus</i>) tangents and cotangents included for the benefit of astronomers. As was the usual practice in early logarithmic-trigonometric tables, cosines were omitted in favour of 'versines' (<i>sinus versus</i>): the versine of an angle <i>&theta;</i> is equal to <i>1 - cos(&theta;)</i>.<br/><br/> The work is dedicated to the Bolognese Senate, whose interests lay mainly in astronomy. However, it proved to be "too specialized, too complete and too scholarly" for its intended audience (see Naux, <i>Histoire des Logarithmes de Neper à Euler</i> II, p. 17) and Cavalieri therefore produced two simplified accounts, <i>Centuria di varii problem</i> (1639), a collection of problems illustrating the use of logarithms (without the tables), and <i>Trigonometria plana, et sphaerica, linearis, & logarithmica</i> (1643), which included a reduced set of tables (140 pages rather than the 320 pages in the <i>Directorium</i>). Judging by the frequency with which the two works appear on the market, the <i>Trigonometria</i> was much more popular, and enjoyed a much larger print-run, than the other two works. The relative rarity of the <i>Directorium</i> perhaps accounts for the fact that some bibliographers (e.g. Hook & Norman) describe the <i>Trigonometria</i> itself as the first Italian work on logarithms. <br/><br/> Cavalieri (1598-1647) was a member of the Jesuati order and professor of mathematics in Bologna, working on mathematics, optics and astronomy (he invented the reflecting telescope). After studying with Benedetto Castelli he became a self-declared disciple of Galileo, to whom he wrote at least 112 letters. Today he is remembered principally for his <i>Geometria indivisibilibus</i> (1635), which played a crucial role in the development of integral calculus. <br/><br/> OCLC lists NYPL, CalTech, Berkeley, Burndy, U.

        Adamo ed Eva

      Acquaforte, circa 1639. Esemplare nel probabile primo stato di due, prima dei danni di lastra citati dal Bellini. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana rifilata al rame, in perfetto stato di conservazione. Il Bellini sostiene che le analogie mostrate da questo lavoro con un?altra acquaforte del Cantarini, il San Giovanni Battista nel deserto (B. 17), soprattutto nel tratteggio del fogliame, datano l?opera al periodo immediatamente successivo al litigio con Guido Reni (1637/39) o al succesivo periodo marchigiano. Aggiungendo : ?la composizione dell?Adamo ed Eva risulta complessa, ma tuttavia ben equilibrata e di grande serenità e mostra inoltre un tentativo di struttura e diagonali molto marcato?. Ottimo esemplare. Etching, 1639 circa. Example in what seems to be the first state of two, before the plate was damaged, as Bellini reported. Beautiful work, printed on contemporary laid paper without watermark, trimmed to platemark, in excellent condition. Bellini states that the many similarities between this work and Cantarini?s etching called St. Johan the Baptist in the desert (B. 17), especially in the sketching of the foliage, enables us to date this print after Cantarini?s quarrel with Guido Reni (1637/39) or after the period he spent in the region of Marche. Bellini writes: ?The composition of Adam and Eve is quite complex, but also well balanced and clear. It shows moreover a strong attempt to define a structure and diagonal lines?. Excellent example. Bartsch 1; Bellini 18 I/II; Reed & Wallace, Italian etchers of the Renaissance & Barocque, pp. 128/130. Dimensioni 198x170.

        Virginiae partis australis, et Floridae

      Amsterdam, 1639. No Binding. Near Fine. 15 x 19 ¾ inches. Copperplate engraving with fine original color, refreshed; some reinforcement and offsetting, else excellent. A map that combines elegant design with historical importance, it depicts the area from the lower Chesapeake Bay, down through North Carolina's Outer Banks, the entire coastlines of South Carolina and Georgia, along through to northern Florida. The map reflects the growth of the English colony beyond the Jamestown settlement. The English royal coat of arms marks this area. Less well known but shown on the map is one of the failed French colonies in Port Royal in South Carolina, whose inhabitants were massacred by the Spanish. Beyond this, there was little European presence in the Southeast at the time, as indicated by the predominance of Indian tribal names on the map on the area. Because the area was still dimly known at the time, the map abounds in legends concerning the nature of the interior, man of which are of a tantalizing nature. One lake is reported by Indians to contain silver. Gold and silver are supposedly found in the Appalachian Mountains, which are shown on the map in Georgia. Another large lake on the map that is said to have a large falls emanating from it might actually be the mapmaker's guess at locating Lake Ontario and the Niagara Falls The map is a fine example of Dutch decorative engraving. Six well-drawn Indian figures flank the title cartouche, and three well-detailed sailing vessels and two compass roses provide added ornamentation.Burden 254; Cumming 42

        Li Tre Trattati di Messer Mattia Giegher Bavaro di Mosburc, Trinciante dell'Ill. Natione Alemanna in Padova. Nel Primo si mostra facilità grande il modo di piegare ogni sorta di panni lini, cioè salviette, e tovaglie, e d'apparecchiare una tavola, con certe altre galanterie degne d'essere sapute; le quali cose tutte son rappresentate in figure in rame: e questa è invenzion del tutto nuova dell'autore, ne mai più per addietro veduta. Nel secondo, intitolato lo scalco, s'insegna, oltr'al conoscere le stagioni di tutte le cose, che si mangiano, la maniera di mettere in tavola le vivande; il che, con tre differenti di tyavole intagliate in rame, chiaramente si mostra. Nel terzo, detto il Trinciante s'insegna il modo di Trinciare ogni sorta di vivande, con le sue figure medesimamente in rame; opera rinnovata, e di molte cose accresciuta.

        A Large Declaration concerning the late Tumults in Scotland, From Their first originalls: Together With a Particular Deduction of the Seditious Practices of the prime Leaders of the Covenanters; Collected out of Their Owne fooule Acts and Writings

      London: Printed By Robert Young. 1639. First Edition. Hardcover. Nineteenth century full calf with gilt tooled decoration to spine and tooled and gilt decoration to boards, lacking spine label, joints rubbed and just starting at spine ends, marbled endpapers with bookplate on front pastedown, fine portrait frontis of Charles I, leaf B3 with loss to lower corner not affecting text, one or two minor marks else internally clean and bright. Printed by the King&#39;s printer the quality of the printing in this work is better than in many books of the period. ESTC.S116832, This work is King Charles&#39; account of his religious dispute with the Church in Scotland, a dispute that grew from Charles&#39; attempt to reform the Church in Scotland and to bring it&#39;s practice into line with the Church in England, primarily through the imposition of the English prayer book and through replacing the Presbyterian system of church government with the Episcopalian. Charles intended to finance his reforms by re-possessing lands formerly held by the Roman Catholic church in Scotland, which had been sold off at the Reformation, thereby alienating landowners and noblemen whose holdings were threatened, as well as the general Protestant population of Scotland. These disputes would lead directly to the Bishop&#39;s wars of 1639 and 1640, the second of which led to Charles calling the Long Parliament, but so weakened his position vis-a-vis that Parliament that, with hindsight, the descent into civil war became almost inevitable. , Small folio, [iv] 430 [ii] pp .

Första upplagan av Freinshemius omsorgsfulla och viktiga kommentarer till Curtius Rufus. Av ekonomiska svårigheter dock publicerad utan vare sig textutgåva eller register. Johan Freinshemius (1608-60), studerade tillsammans med Schefferus i Strassburg under Matthias Bernegger, vars dotter han sedan gifte sig med. Han blev först uppmärksammad som filolog med sina utgåvor av Florus (1632) och Curtius (1639). Dessa utgavs i nära samarbete med läraren Bernegger, som -i sitt hus- hade ett eget tryckeri. År 1642 blev han kallad till den skytteanska professuren i Uppsala, och blev därmed den förste i raden av lärde som drottning Kristina kallade till Sverige. 1647 blev han av henne utnämnd till kunglig bibliotekarie och svensk rikshistoriograf

        Mémoires sur les lignes du second ordre : faisant suite aux recherches publiées dans les journaux de l'école royale polytechnique.Paris: Bachelier, 1817. First edition.

      An expositon of his results on conics. "Brianchon's fame rests ultimately on one theorem. In 1639 Pascal had proved that 'If all the vertices of a hexagon lie on a circle, and if the opposite sides intersect, then the points of intersection lie on a line.' He then boldly extended this result to a hexagon inscribed in any conic, since he recognized that his theorem was projective in nature. Oddly enough, it took 167 years before someone else-Brianchon-realized that since the theorem is projective in nature, its dual should also be true. Simply stated, Brianchon's theorem is 'If all the sides of a hexagon are tangent to a conic, then the diagonals joining opposite vertices are concurrent.' the theorem is useful in the study of the properties of conics and-if the hexagon is specialized in various ways-for the study of properties of pentagons, quadrilaterals, and triangles."

En andra upplaga av "Exercitationes" trycktes som bilaga till den andra upplagan av "Synopsis" (1653), med separat paginering, sedan inarbetade Loccenius texten helt till den tredje och kraftigt utökade upplagan av "Synopsis" (1673). Johannes Loccenius (1598-1677), som föddes i Holstein, blev jur. dr. i Leiden 1625 och inkallad till Sverige av Gustav II Adolf till en professur i historia i Uppsala samma år. 1628 blev han professor Skytteanus, 1648 universitetsbibliotekarie, rikshistoriograf 1651 och 1667 assessor i antikvitetskollegiet.
