Pizarro y Orellana, Fernando:
Madrid: Diego Díaz de la Carrera, 1639.. [36],427,72,[20 (of 32)]pp. including half title with full-page approbation. Lacks final six leaves of index. Half title. Folio. 19th- century period-style calf, spine gilt, leather label. Rubbed at extremities. Bookplate of John Carter Brown on front pastedown, with his ink stamp on half title. A few leaves trimmed closely, occasionally affecting running title. Some corners and edges reinforced. Page 251 torn and repaired, slightly affecting text. Light to moderate foxing and toning. Still, a good copy of a relatively scarce work. 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&# … [Click Below for Full Description]

First edition of this account of the lives and achievements of the great discoverers and conquerors of Spanish America including Christopher Columbus, Alonso de Ojeda, Hernán Cortés, Francisco & Juan Pizarro, Diego de Almagro, Hernán & Gonzalo Pizarro, and Diego García de Paredes, partly based on sources now lost and containing matter not found elsewhere. The author, a descendant of Francisco Pizarro, compiled this work on the glories of the conquest in order to claim grants and rights which he considers his due by lawful inheritance. In his last chapter ‘Discurso legal y politicoÂ’ (72p), he petitions the dedicatee, King Philip IV of Spain, to honour the promise made by the Emperor Charles V to Francisco Pizarro to grant him and his descendants the services of 20,000 feudal vassals and the hereditary title of Marquess as a reward for his conquest of Peru. A very good copy, rare with the half-title and encomium-leaf preceding the title, from the collection of the noted Argentine explorer and historian Francisco P.

1639. A Contract of Marriage between Jean Louis de Bourbon-Busset, Baron de Chalus (1597-1667) and Helene de la Queille de Fleurac (? - 1669)] dated 1 August 1639. 8 1/2 in. x 13 in.; A title page, a blank page, 16 pages of calligraphic handwriting, and two blank pages; all text handwritten in French, on watermarked paper; sewn. The pages average 24 lines per page, with 4 Generalite de Paris stampings at the top of the first four sheets. Two signatures at the end [Mathon & Gibert ?] are probably those of two notaries, who by law were at that time and still are required to reduce the terms of a marriage contract to writing. Every recto has, beneath the last line of text and toward the left margin, a circular squiggle; two such marks appear at the end of the document, and at various places throughout the text in the left margin of a number of pages where cross-outs appear in the text. Permit me to speculate: the squiggles may be acknowledgements of their consent by the parties, both to the contract as a whole and to changes in the documents, a practice still followed today when interlineations are made to printed contractual documents. The signatures at the end (Mathon & Gibert?) are those of the notaries. Let me speculate further: if the foregoing is true, then the happy couple were illiterate and signified their consent by making their marks, as occasionally happens even today. Jean Louis was a descendant, along an illegitimate branch, of the earliest French Kings; specifically, of Robert, son of Robert the Strong who was count of Anjou, and nephew of Odo who became King of … [Click Below for Full Description]

Thomae Aquinatis [Thomas Aquinas]
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's topics follow a cycle: the existence of God; Creation, Man; Man'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.

MYDORGE, Claude
Paris: I. Dedin, 1639. First edition of all four books (books I & II had been published in 1631) of Mydorge’s work on conic sections, intended to provide the geometrical basis for the study of optics. “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” (DSB)<br/><br/>& & “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/>& & “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 numb … [Click Below for Full Description]

typis viduae Jaon. Cnobbari,, Antwerp, 1639. FIRST EDITION 4to. pp. [xxviii] 249 [xxvi]. Roman letter, a little italic, printed side notes, woodcut initials, head- and tail-pieces, engr. t.p. featuring three female allegories of Truth, Justice and Vanity by Theodor Johannes van Merlen after Abraham van Diepenbeeck, 50 engraved emblems by A. Pauli in strong and clear impressions, on p. 234 full moon rising over a river, hand-coloured. Light age yellowing, slightest worming to gutter and margin of t.p., couple of ll. slightly short at end of ream; a handsome and well-margined copy in contemp mottled calf with covers triple-bordered in gilt, spine gilt in six compartments with raised bands, very sympathetically restored. An emblem book with a uncommon didactic twist: the typical pairing of each image with an instructive motto has been split in two, one describing the scene untruthfully ('vanitas'), the other its reality ('veritas'). For instance, surrounding an image of a printing house (p. 10) it is said that Verborum copia and Nihil copia, sed usus: although there is an abundance of words and writing, abundance means nothing without use. In fifty chapters, the book provides a dual commentary over subjects as diverse as memory, marriage, political power, fame, and eating habits. As de Bourgogne argues in the preface, the exercise proves that poor judgement sometimes allows vain conclusions to be drawn from truth. The work is critical of its own tradition, since other books of emblems encourage forming many different possible interpretations of word and image, both religious a … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Anonymous]
Madrid, 1639. News from the Philippines, mainly from Mindanao and Jolo Islands, an exceedingly rare imprint. 1639. Madrid. Catalina del Barrio. In folio (300 mm x 200 mm). [6]. Unbound. Very good, a clean and fresh example, with minor insignificant toning. First edition. The wealth of information included in this short tract, although brief, is remarkable, with news mainly on the Mindanao and Jolo islands, their inhabitants (making mention of the privateering activities held by the Jolo islands natives), defences, nature and distances to other islands, an Embassy from Corralat (a present was brought, considered to be small and denied) and another from Cachil Monacay and belligerent actions taken against the region. It certainly constitutes one of the earliest available sources of information on the region. Exceedingly rare, not a single copy sold at auction (according to AE); according to CCPBE (Catálogo colectivo del patrimonio bibliográfico Español) there is no copy in Spain and according to Tavera -one of the foremost bibliographers on the Philippines- only a copy in the British Library could be found. Provenance: offered in 1922 by Maggs, lot 220. Tavera, 691.

Bacon, Francis
London: John Haviland and William Lee , 1639 Small folio (11 ¼ x7 ½ ), early full calf ruled in blind, morocco lettering piece, lacking frontispiece and additional title, but main title is present, [xvi], 218, [22], [iv], 43 pp. Edges lightly worn, endpapers replaced, signature 'Q" worn in outer margin, restoration to edges of title leaf and final , this copy was repaired professionally in 1968. This is an interesting collection of the miscellaneous scientific writings and experiments of Francis Bacon (1561-1626), appended with his utopian work "A New Atlantis." The book first appeared the year after his death, edited and published by William Rawley, but went through a number of editions reflecting the popularity of his writings. While Bacon would be well educated in his early years, as the youngest son in his family, he would be left without land, money or position upon his father's death in 1579. However, thanks to his tremendous intellect and political skills, he would have a very successful political and intellectual career, and would prosper under James I. Among his many accomplishments would be obtaining the post of attorney general, but bribery charges would bar him from ever holding public office again. He would publish a good deal in his later years, and legend suggests that his intellectual curiosity would eventually cost him his life, when he caught chill after experimenting with the impact of cold temperatures on decaying meat. More recently, it has been suggested that his death was caused by "inhaling remedial substances" … [Click Below for Full Description]

Liceti, Fortunio
1639. Liceti, Fortunio (1577-1657). Woodcut portrait by Giovanni Battista Coriolano (1590-1649), signed in the block by the artist. N.p., 1639. 194 x 138 mm. (image measures 172 x 130 mm.). Matted. Tiny ownership stamp on the verso, one or two marginal finger-marks, but fine otherwise. Excellent impression with good margins of one of Coriolano's most famous woodcut portraits. The subject, Italian physician and scientist Fortunio Liceti, was the author of De monstrosorum causis, natura & differentiis libri duo (1616), one of the earliest classifications of deformities (see Garrison-Morton 534.53). He also published works on astronomy and spontaneous generation, and minerology. Coriolano, the son of Cristoforo Coriolano, is best known for his woodcuts, "which resemble in style those of F. Villamena" (Bryan, Biographical Dictionary of Painters and Engravers [1886]). The verso of the print is blank, indicating that it was issued separately and not as part of a book.
