ARGOLI, Andreae ( ARGOLUS, Andreas ).
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. The printing of the engraved title-page is quite indistinct - it may be faded or even have been washed - but given the beautiful condition of the paper and other pages it see … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

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.

MARIA CRISTINA DI BORBONE, Duchessa di Savoia, detta ""Madama Reale""
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.

CAVALIERI, Bonaventura.
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>θ</i> is equal to <i>1 - cos(θ)</i>.<br/> … [Click Below for Full Description]

Simone CANTARINI detto "Il Pesarese" (Pesaro 1612 - Verona 1648)
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.

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

Charles I [King of England]
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'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' account of his religious dispute with the Church in Scotland, a dispute that grew from Charles' attempt to reform the Church in Scotland and to bring it'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'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 .

MERCATOR, Michael (1565/70-1614)
[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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

BRIANCHON, Charles-Julien.
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." (D.S.B., Vol. 2, pp.454-455).. 8vo: 210 x 135 mm. Uncut, contemporary plain blue wrappers (chipped, a few tears repaired), unopened. 67 pp. and 4 folding engrvaed plates
