BAYER, Johann.
1639 - Ulm: Johann Gorlini, 1639. Coloured, with gold highlights. 285 x 380mm. The constellation of Aquarius, one of the twelve signs of the Zodiac, 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.

Original-Kupferstich mit der Ansicht von Jerusalem auf feinem Papier, Randeinriss und Faltungsdeffekte fachgerecht angeschöpft, klarer und sauberer Abdruck, im oberen Rand etw. fleckig , Blattgröße: 41,5 x 33,5 cm.. Seltene und authentische Ansicht von Jerusalem vom Ölberg aus gesehen. Auffällig ist die genaue Darstellung der Heiligen Stätten des Islam und des Christentums, so u. a. des Felsendomes und der al-Aqsa Moschee auf dem Tempelberg. Der Kupferstich zeigt ein detailreiche Ansicht der Stadt im frühen 17. Jahrhundert. Der italienische Missionar und Orientalist Franciscus Quaresmius (1583-1656) wurde 1598 Franziskaner und ging 1616 nach Palästina, wo er von 1616-1618 apostolischer Vizekommissar von Aleppo in Syrien und von 1618-1619 Superior aller franziskanischen Häuser im Heiligen Land war. Während seines Aufenthaltes wurde er zweimal von den Türken eingesperrt. 1620 kehrte nach Europa zurück, befand sich aber bereits 1625 wieder in Jerusalem. Das Blatt weist im unteren Rand in seiner Legende "Notae nominum Locorum" 115 Gebäude, Brücken, Strassen, Grabmäler, Zisternen, Tore, Quellen und Plätze namentlich auf. Selbst im Horizont des Kupferstiches liegende Orte, wie Bethlehem, sind namentlich lokalisiert und bezeichnet.

typis Pauli Frambotti, Patavii (Padua) 1639 - Hardcover. Octavo. (xxxii) + 93 (+ i) + (+ iv) + 148pp. Later parchment spine, over early hand-printed, patterned, paper-covered boards. Gilt title ("Argoli") and rules to spine. Fresh endpapers. Engraved title-page at front of book, letter-press title page following p. 93 (as always). Woodcut astrological diagrams. Latin text. Andrea Argoli (1570–1657), was born in the Abruzzo region of Italy, but gained renown as professor of mathematics at the University of Rome La Sapienza, and then at the University of Padua, specialising also in astronomy and astrology. His astrological pupils are said to have included Placido Titi, and Giambattista Zenno, astrologer to Wallenstein. This work apparently covers Argoli's broader interests, and includes a large number of woodcut astrological charts of various notables. The engraved and the letterpress titles are slightly different. The engraved title page reads: "Andreae Argoli D. Marci serenissimo annuente equitis . De diebus criticis et de aegrorum decubitu libri duo", while that of the letterpress title page is "Andreae Argoli D. Marci serenissimo annuente senatu equitis, medici, philosophi, ac in Patauino lyceo mathematicis scientias profitentis, De diebus criticis, et de aegrorum decubitu, liber secundus." Spine slightly darkened, boards a bit rubbed especially along the extremities where there is some chafing.

More, Thomas
Printed by B. Alsop & T. Fawcet, London 1639 - Scarce seventeenth-century edition in English of Sir Thomas More';s provocative treatise on the ideal state, originally written in Latin and first published by Erasmus in 1516. The fictional report of a communal system of government recently discovered on a New World island, Utopia contains elements of satire, in the spirit of Sebastian Brant';s Ship of Fools and Erasmus';s Praise of Folly. More';s critique of absolute rule, however, placed the work in a broader political and humanist tradition: "if any King were so smally regarded, & so lightly esteemed; yea, so be-hated of his Subjects that other ways hee could not keepe them in awe, but onely by open wrongs . . . surely, it were better for him to forsake his Kingdome then to hold it by that meanes, whereby though the name of King be kept, yet the Majesty is lost." More';s utopian proposals, including universal education, religious tolerance, and the abolition of private property, sparked debate across Europe. In 1535, More';s refusal to acknowledge Henry VIII';s supremacy over the pope led to his beheading, making him one of the most celebrated of England';s saints and martyrs. Utopia did not appear in English until Ralph Robinson';s 1551 translation, years after More';s execution. Robinson';s text, with its appealing "Tudor vigor" (Pforzheimer), appeared in several editions during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries: this is the fifth edition of Robinson';s translation, which would not be superseded until Gilbert Burnet';s version of 1684.

Engraved pictorial extra title. Modest soiling at lower fore-corners of engraved title and title, intermittent light tidemark to lower forequarters of some leaves in gatherings E through J,and toward end, half small finger- tip size smudge in lower margins of same leaves, but a very good copy in a handsome exhibition binding. The scarce fifth edition of Ralph Robinson's translation into English of More's masterwork. The engraved title was executed by William Marshall, and the errors in pagination vary between copies, and include misnumberings of several individual pages. Robinson's translation was first published in 1551, and although Gilbert Burnet's new translation (1684) is in many ways its superior, it has been frequently used as the English text even into the 20th century. Dibdin frowned on the careless production evidenced in this edition, but nonetheless utilized it for his own reprint.

Francis Bacon
London-William Lee, 1639. Book. An early copy of Francis Bacon's Sylva Sylvarum. Fifth edition with alphabetical table of the principle things contained within the work, featuring decorative head and tail pieces, and illuminated capitals. To which is added Bacon's A New Atlantis a Worke Unfinished. Autopian workoriginallyreleased in 1627, depicting Bacon's ideas of an ideal land where generosity and enlightenment, dignity and splendor, piety and public spirit were the commonly held qualities of the inhabitants of Bensalem. The name Bensalem means Son of Peace, having obvious resemblance with Bethlehem and is referred to as God's bosom, a land unknown, in the last page of the work. There has been much speculation as to whether a real island society inspired Bacon's utopia. Scholars have suggested numerous countries, from Iceland to Japan, a city named Bensalem was actually founded in Pennsylvania, USA, in 1682. Bacon has been called the creator of empiricism. His works established and popularised inductive methodologies for scientific enquiry, often called the Baconian method, or simply the scientific method. His demand for a planned procedure of investigating all things natural marked a new turn in the rhetorical and theoretical framework for science, much of which still surrounds conceptions of proper methodology today. The Sylva Sylvarum is particularly fascinating as it contains numerous passages dealing with medical treatments for the prolongation of life and the preservation of flesh. Sylva Sylvarumlacks the frontispiece and engraved title page. New Atlantis lacks last … [Click Below for Full Description]
