        Regno di Napoli.

      Francoforte, 1640 circa. Incisione in rame all'acquaforte, colore d'epoca, cm 46 x 56,7 (alla lastra) pi? margini bianchi. Stemma in alto a destra, piccolo e semplice cartiglio sormontato da stemma e corona in basso a destra; ai lati della carta, fuori dal perimetro graduato, ci sono dodici stemmi, sei per ciascun lato (dal primo in alto a destra): Abruzzo Ultra, Terra di Bari, Terra di Otranto, Calabria Ultra, Calabria Citra, Capitanata; Abruzzo Citra, Basilicata, Principato Ultra, Principato Citra, Terra di Lavoro, Contado di Molise. Testo spagnolo al verso.Carta geografica per la prima volta inserita nell'"Itinerarium Italiae" di Martin Zeiller, successivamente in alcune edizioni della "Newe archontologia cosmica" del Merian, e nella successiva ristampa dell'opera sull'Italia del 1688. Il Merian fu famoso incisore svizzero, nacque a Basilea, si istru? a Zurigo e si trasfer? poi a Francoforte, dove incontr? Theodore de Bry (divenendo suo genero) e dove trascorse la maggior parte della sua vita lavorativa. Insieme al geografo Tedesco Martin Zeiller (1589 - 1661), produsse la "Topographia Italiae", costituita da ventuno volumi; l'opera, che includeva un alto numero di piante di citt?, mappe di stati e un mappamondo, ebbe grande successo e dal 1688 fu edita a Francoforte in numerose edizioni. Il Merian complet? anche le ultime parti, curandone le edizioni, dei "Grand Voyages" e dei "Petits Voyages" inaugurati da De Bry nel 1590. Foglio brunito in modo leggero e uniforme, peraltro in fine coloritura e in buono stato di conservazione.

        L'optique divisée en trois livres : où l'on démontre d'une maniere aisée tout ce qui regarde 1. La Propagation & les Proprietez de la Lumiere. 2. La Vision. 3. La Figure & la Disposition des Verres qui servent à la perfectionner.Paris: Etienne Michallet, 1682.

      First edition of this important optical treatise of Ango (1640-94). "Ango's treatise is of significance to the history of optics because it established the outline of a wave theory of light nearly eight years in advance of Huygens's <i>Traite de la lumiere</i>. Both Ango and Huygens acknowledged making use of an unpublished manuscript by the Jesuit scientist Ignace Gaston Pardies (1636-1673) which may have suggested a wave theory based on optical experiments with reflected and refracted rays" (Becker 19).<br/><br/> The work is presented in three books. The first, and most important, presents Pardies' wave theory of light based, in part, on analogies with sound and water. After Descartes' presentation of the sine law for reflection in 1637, natural philosophers considered part of the burden of proof for any theory of light to be a direct derivation of the sine law of refraction as well as Snell's then long-known law of mirror reflection. Ango (following Pardies) noted that Hooke's <i>Micrographia</i> had offered a theory of light but had simply accepted Descartes result, and although the <i>Micrographia</i> had advanced a type of wave theory, it had not attempted to show how the law of refraction resulted from it. Importantly, Pardies' theory had the speed of light slower in denser media; the reverse of what Descartes had proposed. The first book contains a plate showing waves reflected off of curved mirrors and forming the well-known foci of the parabola and the ellipse - part of Pardies' work to show experimental support for the wave theory. Critically, lacking from Pardies' work (or Ango's presentation of it) is a consideration of secondary waves - something that Huygens supplied and so obtained a complete and workable wave theory of light. Nevertheless, Pardies theory, as presented by Ango in <i>L'Optique</i>, is a direct precursor to Huygens' wave theory in that wave-front propagation and light-speed are just as Huygens eventually adopted.<br/><br/> The second and third books are more practical and deal with vision, lenses, and optical ways to correct and improve vision. Ango reviews ancient theories of vision, including Alhazen and Witelo, but presents the Cartesian view of the operation of the eye taken from Kepler's <i>Ad Vitellionem</i> (1604): the lens produces an image of the world focused on the retina. Ango also reviews the basic aspects of geometrical optics (setting aside questions of the theory of light) and so explains how lenses work. This leads, in turn, to considerations of how lenses can be used to correct for near-sightedness, far-sightedness, and presbyopia. An interesting aspect of these two books is the interaction they demonstrate between theory and experiment. <br/><br/> Ignace-Gaston Pardies followed the life-course of many Jesuits of his age, having joined The Society aged 16, eventually taking up teaching duties. He wrote about a wide range of physical phenomena; including light, famously objected to Newton's corpuscular theory. Though Pardies' optical manuscript <i>Traite complet d'Optique</i> is lost, it is known that Huygens had studied it and he clearly states that it was the beginning point for his own work that eventually resulted in his <i>Traite de la Lumiere</i>. Huygens' copy of the present work has survived, complete with his marginal annotations.<br/><br/> Becker 19; Poggendorff I 48; Wolf I, p. 264; Sommervogel I 296.. 12mo (149 x 92 mm), pp [viii] 367 [1] (121-124 omitted in pagination, but complete) with woodcut plate and numerous woodcut diagrams in text.
