MERIAN,MATTEO (IL VECCHIO).
- Francoforte, 1640 circa. Incisione in rame all'acquaforte, colore d'epoca, cm 46 x 56,7 (alla lastra) più 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 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)
Paris: Lutetiae Parisiorum, 1640. 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" (Gonzalez 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 acute … [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.

Impresa tipogr. al tit., iniz. silogr., testo in car. tondo, passi in greco. Con 4 magnifiche tavole anatomiche finem. inc. in rame f.t. Terza edizione (la prima era apparsa, postuma, a Milano nel 1627) dell'unica opera dell'Aselli (Cremona 1581 - Milano 1625, allievo di G.B. Carcano Leone, poi anatomico e chirurgo a Milano ed infine professore di anatomia all'Univeristà di Pavia). In essa egli illustra dettagliatamente la scoperta, avvenuta quasi per caso, dei vasi chiliferi e soprattutto ne analizza la funzione, che altri anatomisti, come Eustachio e Falloppio, avevano ignorato. E' da mettere in evidenza che l'opera dell'Aselli venne pubblicata prima di quella sulla circolazione del sangue di Harvey ''il quale non comprese però l'importanza della scoperta di Aselli e forse non la conobbe'' (Castiglioni I, p. 457-8).

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
1640. 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 popul … [Click Below for Full Description]
