Il Merian fu famoso incisore svizzero, nacque a Basilea, si istruì a Zurigo e si trasferì poi a Francoforte, dove incontrò 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 città, mappe di stati e un mappamondo, ebbe grande successo e dal 1688 fu edita a Francoforte in numerose edizioni. Il Merian completò 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.

Philo of Alexandria (Philo Judaeus)
Lutetiae Parisiorum. Folio, contemporary blind-stamped vellum. Greek and Latin text in parallel. Moderate wear to the binding, from the library of the Bishop of Vermont, generally sound otherwise. The Opera of the Hellenistic Jewish Biblical philosopher Philo Judaeus (20 BC-50 AD), who blended Greek philosophy and Judaism. Philo used philosophical allegory to attempt to fuse and harmonize Greek philosophy with Jewish philosophy. His method followed the practices of both Jewish exegesis and Stoic philosophy. His allegorical exegesis was important for several Christian Church Fathers, but he has barely any reception history within Rabbinic Judaism. He believed that literal interpretations of the Hebrew Bible would stifle humanity's view and perception of a God too complex and marvelous to be understood in literal human terms. "In the Diaspora, Judaism was forced to come to terms with Hellenism in a manner that could be avoided in Palestine itself...There was a movement within Judaism that sought to show the compatibility between the ancient faith and the best of Hellenistic culture...The high point of this entire tradition was Philo of Alexandria...who sought to show that the best of pagan philosophy agreed with the Hebrew Scriptures" (Gonz? lez I: 13). According to Charles Duke Yonge, who translated this volume into English in the 19th century, these treatises prove Philo "deeply versed in Greek literature of every age and description, and of considerable skill in the sciences of music, geometry and astronomy...It is impossible to deny him the praise of acuteness and ingenui … [Click Below for Full Description]

MAETS, Carel de.
Krivatsy 7237; Partington II, p. 736; Thorndike VIII, pp. 152-153. First and only edition of an introductory work on chemistry, written by the "notable teacher" (Partington) Carel de Maets (1640-1690). The work, loosely translated as "an introduction to rational chemistry", gives advice on how to properly and carefully perform several chemical proceedings. De Maets was among the first to consider a rational, methodological approach towards chemistry. In his time, chemistry slowly gained recognition as a "real" science, where at first it mostly served other disciplines, especially in the field of medicine. The main text "is divided into nine chapters on extraction of tinctures or elixirs from the vegetable kingdom, calcination of antimony, calcination of mercury, various calcinations of other metals and their reduction to vitriols and croci, sublimations of antimony and mercury, volatile salts taken from animals, acid spirits of common salt and nitre, sulphur, oils and ardent spirits" (Thorndike). Pages 3-16 comprise the Animadversiones, in which De Maets criticizes de publication Collectanea chymica Leydensia, published earlier that year, stating "that it was published without De Maets's or Morley's consent or knowledge" (Thorndike).With owner's inscription on title-page. Browned and with some occasional spots throughout. Binding slightly soiled. Overall a very good copy.

BLAEU, Willem Jansz.
V.d. Krogt, Koeman's Atlantes Neerlandici II, 2:112.2, no. 85. Engraved map of Southeast Asia, showing the area from India in the north west to the most southern part of Japan in the north east, with the Indonesian archipelago in the most south with an outline of the western part of New Guinea (now part of Indonesia). The areas depicted furthermore include present day Bangladesh, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam, and Cambodia, Malaysia and the Philippines. This map was published in the second volume of the Le theatre du monde ou Nouvel Atlas published in 1640, by the famous cartographer Willem Jansz. Blaeu (1571-1638). His position as official cartographer of the Dutch VOC ensured he had access to the most accurate region information, making the best maps of his era. The present map gives an accurate view of the topographical knowledge of Asia in the early 17th century, with the first account of Europe exploration of Australia, showing an accurate outline of New Guinea. Some minor browning along the extremities, a tiny tear in the left margin and a couple spots. A good copy.

BLAEU, Willem
Amsterdam: Willem Blaeu. unbound. Map. Engraving. Image measures 14.75 x 19.25". This stunning circa 1640 map of the volcanic island of Ischia located in the Tyrrhenian Sea on the northern part of the Gulf of Naples depicts the mountainous island in exquisite detail. A combination of a map and a Bird's-eye view, it covers the island as well the coast of nearby Naples. The peninsula of Capo Miseno as well as the island of Procida are included. Oriented with north at the bottom, the map beautifully notes the various towns, cities, rivers, fields, etc. Forests and mountains are rendered in profile with the highest peak of Mount Epomeo clearly towering above the rest. Individual buildings and castles are rendered in profile, including the medieval Aragonese Castle that stands on the volcanic rocky islet that connects to the larger island of Ischia by a stone bridge. Ships are seen sailing in the Gulf of Naples. At the time this map was issued, the Barbary Pirates operated in the region and for centuries terrorized the islanders. Many of the inhabitants ended up as slaves to the pirates. The map includes three decorative cartouches including a beautiful title cartouche in the top left corner. The map is in very good condition with minor wear along the centerfold and some printing creases near the bottom right. Minor foxing. Willem Blaeu (1571-1638) was a prolific Dutch mapmaker who started one of the most famous map publishing firms of the 17th century. It was at this time that the Dutch controlled the map trade, and their ornate and beautiful maps had immense popularity. … [Click Below for Full Description]

Regno di Napoli"Regno di Napoli"', kopergravure rond 1640 vervaardigd door Joan Blaeu. In de tijd met de hand gekleurd. Afm. ca. 38,5 x 50 cm. Met aan de achterzijde in het Nederlands een beschrijving van het gebied.Het koninkrijk Napels maakte in die tijd deel uit van de Spaanse gebieden van het Habsburgse rijk. In de rechter bovenhoek zien we dan ook het Spaanse wapen. De kaart is verder fraai versierd met de kleurige provinciewapens in de kaartrand. Als bron voor deze kaart maakte Blaeu gebruik van een atlas van de Italiaanse kartograaf Giovanni Antonio Magini (1555-1617), wiens kaartboek Italia in 1620 postuum in Bologna was uitgegeven.De kaart werd maakte ook onderdeel uit van Blaeu"s Atlas Major.Het uitgeven van de Atlas Major wordt, met bijna 600 dubbelzijdige van koperen platen gedrukte gravures en 3000 pagina"s tekst, gezien als een van de grote prestaties van de Gouden Eeuw. Een onderneming met een gecompliceerde planning, financiering en inzet van mankracht en specialisten. Ook hedendaagse uitgevers erkennen Joan Blaeu's superioriteit, drieënhalve eeuw geleden.De Blaeu atlas was het meest kostbare gedrukte boek dat je in de tweede helft van de 17e eeuw kon krijgen, afhangend van de taal en kleuring tussen fl. 330 en fl. 460. (Een assistent boekverkoper verdiende rond 1660 fl. 2 per week, de huurprijs van een boekwinkel lag tussen fl. 400 - fl. 700 per jaar.)

MAP OF ASIA"Asia Noviter Delineata." Carte-a-figures by Willem Blaeu depicting the native manners of dress, and nine city plans and views at the top. Copper engraving printed in 1640, coloured by a later hand. Size 41 x 55,2 cm.A fine example of Willem Blaeu's famous map of Asia. Like the Blaeu Africa map, this is a map that appeals both to a sense of cartographic history and to an aesthetic sense of beauty. This is a cornerstone, folio-size map of Asia and is one of the better known, more decorative maps of Asia of the 17th century. This map is basically a reduction of Blaeu's wallmap of Asia of 1608. The map contains extensive details on what was known of Asia in the early 17th century. Korea is still an enlonged island. Japan has a predominantly east to west direction. In China, the Great Wall is shown along with the in-land lakes.Willem Janszoon, or Willem Jansz Blaeu (1571-1638) as he is more commonly known, was one of the most noted Dutch cartographers and map publisher of the 17th century. Blaeu's maps are "esteemed by collectors for their decorative quality, historical importance, and as the highest expression of Dutch cartographic art during the period of its supremacy" (Tooley, p 28).After preparation as a pupil of the great Danish astronomer,Tycho Brahe, Blaeu initially concentrated on globe making and separately published maps, including wall maps of the continents. From 1608, he dominated the market for sea atlases and in 1630 produced his terrestrial atlas. These atlases were continued by his sons, culminating in the great Atlas Maior of 1662 in 11 volumes wit … [Click Below for Full Description]

Buxtorf, Johann, the elder.
Basel: Sumptibus et typis Ludovici König Very large folio (36 cm, 14.2"). Frontis., pl., [6] ff., 2680 cols., [32] ff.. 1640 Second edition of the second Biblical Hebrew–Latin dictionary compiled by Johann Buxtorf the Elder (1564–1629), left incomplete at his death and completed and published by his son in 1639. A leading Hebraist of the late 16th and early 17th centuries, Buxtorf taught Hebrew at Basel for nearly 40 years, and was a friend and correspondent of Bezè and Grynaeus. This is not to be confused with Buxtorf's preceding Hebrew–Latin dictionary, the Lexicon hebraicum et chaldaicum (1607), another famous and standard reference. The text is printed in double columns in Hebrew and Latin, in roman and italic, sparsely decorated with woodcut head- and tailpieces, ornaments, and one large historiated initial. The title-page is preceded by a => full-page engraved portrait of the author and an added engraved title-page dated 1639, in an allegorical frame flanked by figures of Daniel and Esra with an image of the Tower of Babel above and a king praying in a gothic cathedral below. Provenance: Engraved title-page with minute owner's inscription dated 1723 of => Ernst Wilh[elm] Christoph Christfels of Fürth, Germany, who published a treatise, "Concerning Ialtha, daughter of the prince, an example of the learned women of the Jewish race," in 1725, citing Buxtorf's Institutio epistolaris hebraica of 1629 at least once (and using this dictionary for the Hebrew vocabulary?). 19th-century paper imitating tree calf over boards, paper spine label; rubbed and spine paper cracking.

MAP OF ASIA"Asia Noviter Delineata." Carte-a-figures by Willem Blaeu depicting the native manners of dress, and nine city plans and views at the top. Copper engraving printed in 1640, coloured by a later hand. Size 41 x 55,2 cm.A fine example of Willem Blaeu's famous map of Asia. Like the Blaeu Africa map, this is a map that appeals both to a sense of cartographic history and to an aesthetic sense of beauty. This is a cornerstone, folio-size map of Asia and is one of the better known, more decorative maps of Asia of the 17th century. This map is basically a reduction of Blaeu's wallmap of Asia of 1608. The map contains extensive details on what was known of Asia in the early 17th century. Korea is still an enlonged island. Japan has a predominantly east to west direction. In China, the Great Wall is shown along with the in-land lakes.Willem Janszoon, or Willem Jansz Blaeu (1571-1638) as he is more commonly known, was one of the most noted Dutch cartographers and map publisher of the 17th century. Blaeu's maps are "esteemed by collectors for their decorative quality, historical importance, and as the highest expression of Dutch cartographic art during the period of its supremacy" (Tooley, p 28).After preparation as a pupil of the great Danish astronomer,Tycho Brahe, Blaeu initially concentrated on globe making and separately published maps, including wall maps of the continents. From 1608, he dominated the market for sea atlases and in 1630 produced his terrestrial atlas. These atlases were continued by his sons, culminating in the great Atlas Maior of 1662 in 11 volumes wit … [Click Below for Full Description]

[xvi], 222, [2, blank] pp. THE FIRST EDITION IN ENGLISH OF MACHIAVELLI'S IL PRINCIPE. First published in Rome in the Italian vernacular in 1532, The Prince marks the foundation of modern political theory. The work was innovative and controversial from the start, divorcing the study of politics from ethics and religion. The Prince was based on observations made by Machiavelli when he served in the Chancery of the Florentine Republic, and his close observation of the ruthless Cesare Borgia furnished Machiavelli with the model of the "Machiavellian" politician - a "mixture of audacity and prudence, cruelty and fraud, self-reliance and distrust of others" (PMM). The Prince was variously banned by the Catholic Church and by ecclesiastical authorities in England. Several 16th century manusc … [Click Below for Full Description]

BESLER, Basil (1561-1629)
Eichstatt, 1640. Hand-coloured engraving. Basil Besler published "Hortus Eystettensis", the earliest large folio botanical, at Eichstatt near Nuremburg, in 1613. He worked on the drawings for the 374 copper engravings over a period of sixteen years using the plants in the garden of Bishop Johann Conrad von Gemmingen, his patron. Depicted in this florilegium were flowers, herbs, vegetables and newly discovered plants such as tobacco and peppers. Besler was, in modern terms, a botanist and horticulturalist, and he was familiar with real and alleged medicinal properties of various plants. Besler had the good fortune to live at a time when exotic plants were being shipped to Europe from all over the world. The garden that he organized and illustrated for his patron was both ornamental and experimental, and the large book he had engraved after his drawings was unique. The prints, made by a team of master engravers, are strong and exquisitely done.
