Amsterdam, 1640 - Incisione in rame, colorata d'epoca, mm 382x500. Elegante carta eseguita sul modello maginiano. Ottimo esemplare. W.

SCIENCE] John Parkinson
London: T. Cotes, 1640. First Edition. The Theater of Plants is "an herbal of large extent" and generally considered the last of the great English Herbals [Anderson, 227]. With 1775 pages describing nearly 3,800 plants, and over 2,700 woodcuts, it is worthy of the description "large extent". The splendid allegorical title page has been colored, as have a number of the plates. The title page "depict[s] signs of divine guidance: 'a cloud by day, a pillar of fire by night', and the presence of Adam, the first gardener, and Solomon, wises of men...and the scope of the work was well indicated by showing plants from the various continents" [Anderson, 230]. The "last of the old English herbalists" was Apothecary to James I, and his work was more original than either Gerard or Johnson" [Garrison-Morton, 1823] An important book, "the Theatrum marked a glorious sunset of the age of herbals, and it left a glow that will last as long as the English language is read" [Anderson, 234]. On the blank leaf is the name "Thomas Goldingham,, Ano. 1659" and the later note "June 21, 1666. Sold this book to Mr Hanserd Knollys [who was an English particular Baptist minister] for tenn pounds and warranted perfect by me, Nathaniell Nor[illegible]." A several small patches to the verso of the title page, and four (of 2700) woodcuts are repaired. The greens of the cuts have oxidized.

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.)

Goldsmith BMC STC French 345; I. Grattan-Guinness, ed., Landmark writings in Western mathematics 1640-1940 (2005), p. 56; Poggendorff I, 383-384. First edition of the first extensive, separately published textbook on integral calculus, by Louis Carré (1663-1711), French mathematician and private teacher at Paris, published 44 years before Leonard Euler's classic textbook. It includes a wide variety of practical applications, including the measurement of surface areas, the determination of the volumes and centres of gravity of solid bodies, and problems of dynamics. With a contemporary owner's name on the title-page, a later 18th-century manuscript note on the endleaf and a couple manuscript notes in the text. A failed attempt to wash out the owner's name on the title-page has left a small faint stain. With the title-page slightly foxed and an occasional minor spot, but still in very good condition and with very large margins. The binding shows some cracks in the hinges, superficial damage to the leather and some corners skilfully repaired, but is still good and structurally sound. The most thorough presentation of integral calculus to its date.

Die Stadt ist eines der ältesten hessischen Heilbäder, zugleich ist sie seit 2014 ein anerkannter Kneippkurort. Bad Schwalbach ist ein Kurort etwa 20 Kilometer nordwestlich der hessischen Landeshauptstadt Wiesbaden. Die Kernstadt liegt in 289 bis 465 Meter Höhe im westlichen Hintertaunus sehr langgestreckt auf 2,5 Kilometer Länge in einem linken Seitental der Aar, das vom Nesselbach durchflossen wird. Über 56 Prozent der Gemarkungsfläche besteht aus Wald. Bad Schwalbach wurde als Langinswalbach im Jahre 1352 erstmals urkundlich erwähnt und war seit 1364 als Pfarrei bekannt. Weitere historisch dokumentierte Erwähnungen des Ortsnamens sind Swalbach 1360 und Langenschwalbach Anfang des 16. Jahrhunderts. Erste zuverlässige Berichte über die Mineralquellen gibt es ab 1568 durch den Wormser Arzt Tabernaemontanus, der den Ort auch in seinem 1581 erschienenen Werk Neuw Wasserschatz bekannt machte. Der Speyerer Weihbischof Heinrich Fabricius hielt sich bereits 1583 zur Kur am Sauerbrunnen von Bad Schwalbach auf.[5] Obwohl Langenschwalbach im Dreißigjährigen Krieg völlig zerstört wurde, wurde es schnell wieder aufgebaut, der … [Click Below for Full Description]

- This fantastic, vivid tableau is one of the most impressive maps of the Holy Land ever created, being an extremely rare American edition of a much beloved wall map that was issued in various forms over almost two centuries. Focused on modern-day Israel, from a bird’s eye perspective, it captures the entire Biblical Holy Land from Damascus and Southern Lebanon, in the north, all the way down to Cairo and the Red Sea, in the south. The curve of the Mediterranean Coast has been eliminated and the geography has been intentionally stylized to augment the artistic perspective. The tableau presents a veritable pageant of Biblical imagery, from both the Old and New Testaments, featuring innumerable finely engraved pictorial scenes accompanied by their appropriate scriptural references. The region is divided into the territories of the Twelve Ancient Tribes of Israel, each outlined in its own original color. In the upper center appears a prominent depiction of Jerusalem, derived from Claes Jansz Visscher’s famous map of the city, Die Heylige en Wytvermaerde Stadt Ierusalem (circa 1640), with 35 key sites numbered to its left. The lower right corner features a large and finely composed view of the sacred city, entitled ‘A Prospect of Jerusalem,’ while further to the right is a view of ‘The Temple of Solomon,’ depicted in a grand Renaissance style. The sides of the composition as adorned with 14 (7 on each side) vignettes of scenes from the Old Testament, beginning with Genesis and ending with the Story of Moses. The genealogy of this magnificent wall m … [Click Below for Full Description]

De Backer & Sommervogel VI, col. 1640; Landwehr, German Emblem Books 494; Praz, p. 468. Second or third edition in the original Latin of a beautiful, instructive emblem book by the Jesuit Franz Reinzer (1661-1708), curiously mixing science and philosophical politics, including moral lessons. Quotations from scientists and classical philosophers accompany beautiful emblems with meteorites, flying dragons, lightning, comets, rainbows, fata morganas, earthquakes, underground fires, minerals, metals, etc., with references in the margins and allegories of politics and public life and wise lessons drawn from them.

With the engraved armorial bookplate of Christoph Wenzel, Graf von Nostitz (1643-1712) of Schloss Lobris in Lower Silesia, and the bookplate of Bob Luza (1893-1980).
