Castelli, Pietro.
Basel, Franz Perna, 1640. - 4to. Engraved t. p., (6), 51 (1) pp. Written space rules throughout. Marbled boards. Early botanical study of the Balsam of Mecca (Balm of Gilead), a resinous gum of the tree Commiphora opobalsamum, native to southern Arabia. The resin was valued in medicine and perfume in ancient Greece and the Roman Empire; thus Pliny the Elder mentions it as one of the ingredients of the "Royal Perfume" of the Parthians in his Naturalis Historia. - One of several editions published the same year; Perna himself produced another version without his imprint on the title page. "Concerns controversy with Antonio Manfredi and Vincenzio Panulio" (Krivatsy). - Born and educated at Rome, the surgeon and botanist Pietro Castelli (1574-1662) moved to Messina in 1634. Here, he laid out the botanical gardens at Messina, where he cultivated many exotic medicinal plants. - Heavy brownstaining throughout, still a good copy of this rare work. VD 17, 1:062780A. Cf. Krivatsy 2252. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

(ELZEVIER IMPRINT). PLINY THE YOUNGER
Lugduni Batavorum: Ex Officinâ Elseviriorum, 1640. First Elzevier Edition. Edited by Jean de Laet . Hardcover. 127 x 70 mm (5 x 2 3/4"). 12 p.l., [1]-289, 300-414 (i.e., 404) pp., [14] leaves. First Elzevier Edition. Edited by Jean de Laet. VERY PLEASING 18TH CENTURY CRIMSON MOROCCO, covers with triple gilt fillet border, raised bands, spine handsomely gilt in compartments with large central fleuron within a lozenge of small tools and volute cornerpieces, MATCHING MOROCCO DOUBLURES with intricate gilt dentelle, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. Woodcut printer's device on title page, woodcut headpieces, initials, and tailpiece. Rahir 503; Willems 506. Leather a bit darkened in spots and with a hint of wear, occasional mild foxing, isolated rust spots, other trivial imperfections, but a really excellent copy, the binding very bright and showing almost no wear, and the text clean, fresh, and printed on better quality paper. The earliest Elzevier printing, this beautifully bound volume contains 10 books of epistles, along with the eulogy on the emperor Trajan, one of the two extant works of Pliny the Younger (62-113) studied for the incidental information it contains about the author and his times. The graceful, light, and charming letters touch on court activity, literature, matters of state, geography, current events, and a variety of other subjects (particularly interesting is Pliny's account of the eruption of Vesuvius in 79). Together, these epistles give an intimate portrait of Roman life and manners between 75 and 112, and a very different picture from that fou … [Click Below for Full Description]

RITTER, Franz
1640. Map. Uncolored engraving. Image measures 11.25" x 14". 1640. This imaginative world map by Franz Ritter, often referred to as the "Sundial Map," constitutes one of the most creative--if not bizarre--map projections proposed in the early 17th century. At a time when cartographers throughout Europe were devising new ways to depict the world on paper, Ritter, a German astronomer, first came up with this idea in 1610. This map is the second state, printed in 1640. It is projected from the North Pole, such that the land masses around it are laid out as if on the table of a sundial. In fact, Ritter developed the map to function specifically with regard to his home city of Nuremberg by drawing the Tropic of Capricorn to follow the shadow that the dial would cast at Nuremberg's latitude. The resulting map looks distorted, with lands increasing in size as they are further away from the Pole, but it actually maintains correct mathematical scale. Nonetheless, the projection failed to catch on, making this curious map the only known sundial projection. As such, it remains a beautiful and fascinating document of 17th century cartography. Continents, countries, cities and rivers are all labeled. Land masses are outlined crisply, and the expanded space of the southern continents created by the projection is filled with pictorial mountains and indigenous creatures. Ships, animals, and mythological beings also populate the seas. At the bottom of the map is a fine compass rose labeled with the winds. A rectangular floral frame includes the cardinal directions. The map is in exce … [Click Below for Full Description]

Some toning to text, light foxing in a few places, light foxing to title page, internally clean. A handsome copy. * Second edition. Text in Law French, preliminaries and corrections in English. Along with Fleta, Britton is one of two significant law books produced during the reign of Edward I [1272-1307]. According to Francis Morgan Nichols, editor of the 3rd ed. (1865), it is a legal compilation with no known author, wrongly attributed to John Britton, or Le Breton, bishop of Hereford. The oldest English book in Law-French, it was probably a response to a wish of Edward I to produce a digest of the English law in the spirit of Justinian's Institutes. Book One outlines the authority of justices and officers and defines the nature of various personal pleas (including pleas of the crown). Book Two describes disseisins and their remedies. Book Three treats intrusions and their remedies. Book Four describes pleas relating to advowsons and the property of churches (and of attaints).

BLAEU WILLEM.
Incisione in rame, coloritura originale d'epoca, 412x502. Willem Janszoon Blaeu (1571-1638) fu allievo di Tycho Brahe, e fondò ad Amsterdam nel 1599 un'officina per la produzione di strumenti astronomici e globi, che in breve tempo pubblicò anche carte geografiche e nautiche; nel 1630 fu dato alle stampe il primo atlante: Atlantis Appendix composto da 60 carte. Nel 1635 Blaeu pubblicò i primi due volumi dell'Atlas Novus, ampliato dopo la sua morte dai figli fino a giungere nel 1662 all'Atlas Major in 9-12 voll. e contenente circa 600 carte geografiche. L'attività dei Blaeu terminò nel 1672 a causa di un incendio; le lastre salvate furono vendute a De Wit, Schenk e Valck.

Bleau, Willem and Johannes
Americas: Amsterdam: Johannes and Cornelius Blaeu. 1640 [but 1643-1645].. Copper engraved map of Bermuda from the 2nd edition of Blaeu's " Le Theatre du Monde ou Nouvel Atlas" Vol 2 .'This edition ... is a much more advanced one than the edition of 1638/1640. The text has been reset' (Van der Krogt) Original outline colour; French text to verso. Decorative title cartouche showing Neptune astride the Royal Arms holding a ship. The miniature map below the cartouche shows the correct proportion of the island to the coast of the mainland. The map is superimposed over a map of the Atlantic with the coastlines of Britain, North America and Hispaniola, showing the location of Bermuda. Bright and clean; light toning to edges of blank margins. Blaeu based this work on John Speed's remarkably accurate map of 1626-1627. It shows the island divided into tribes and lots, and below the map itself appear the names of the first proprietors and the number of shares assigned each. The "Sea Venture" under Sir George Somers was wrecked off Bermuda in 1609 and the surviving Englishmen divided the island into Tribes (later Parishes) and Shares, which are individually listed with their owners at the foot of the map. Shortly afterwards the Bermudas were granted to the Virginia Company, hence various references to the Company on the map including the distance to the Roanoke Colony in Virginia. Willem Janszoon Blaeu [1571- 1668] had set up the business in Amsterdam 1596 following studies with the famous astonomer Tycho Brahe. In 1630 Willhem published his first atlas "Atlas Appendix" … [Click Below for Full Description]

Blaeu:
Amsterdam, 1640. Copper engraving, 37.5 x 49 cms, original hand-colour, French text on verso.

Willem Blaeu and his son Johannes were official cartographers to the V.O.C.

Blaeu:
Amsterdam, 1640. Copper engraving, 38 x 49 cms, original hand-colour, French text on verso. A decorative map of Morocco, though in Blaeu's day this part of northwest Africa was divided between the flourishing kingdoms of Morocco and Fez. The orientation of the map is East-West, which is why Spain and the Straits of Gibraltar, which are to the North, are on the right of the map. The cartouche, flanked by satyrs, credits Ortelius. Parts of this region had been incorporated in the Roman Empire (for example, Tangiers was the Roman Tingis), but in the seventeenth-century European interest was mainly due to the coastal towns which were under Spanish or Portugese control, such as Tangiers and Ceuta which had become important commercial centres, and to the major threat of Moorish piracy from other towns along the coast. This map was first printed in 1635 but continued to appear throughout the century. Tangiers was briefly in English hands. It was ceded to Charles II on the occasion of his marriage to Catherine of Braganza in 1662, but was abandoned to the Moors twenty years later.
