BLAEU, Willem (1571-1638)
Amsterdam: Blaeu, 1640. Copper engraving with period outline colour, Latin text on verso. Important early Dutch map of southeastern America: this copy with exceptionally wide margins and with very pretty period hand colouring.This is the second state of Blaeu's map of the southeastern portion of North America. The map depicts the region from present day northern Florida to Chesapeake Bay.France is shown as governing the southern portion of this land (though they had been forced out in fact some time before by the Spanish) and Great Britain as ruler of the northeast.As pointed out by Burden, this map improves on the Hondius-Mercator map of the same region in its depiction of the Outer Banks and in its inclusion of the Chesapeake Bay, and it provided the best depiction of the region until 1700. Its handsome cartouche surrounded by full figure Native Americans and its elaborate calligraphy contribute to make it one of the most artistically successful maps of 17th century America.Cumming, 41 (plate 26); Burden, The Mapping of North America 253; Goss, 31.

Translated into English, the "Historie of the Councel of Trent" chronicles the great Council that formed the modern Catholic Church. The Council of Trent played an important part in determining the outcome of the Counter-Reformation. Called for by Pope Paul Ill, the Council was finally disbanded in 1563; although it had a life span of 18 years, it was only engaged in talks for four and a half years. The Pope did not attend the meetings of the Council and he took no formal part in it, however his legates had to ensure that the pope?s views would always be put forward in order that there was no danger of the Council being superior to the Pope.The Council was called to examine doctrine and reform. Charles V had wanted abuses looked at first in an attempt to please the Protestants and hopefully tempt them back to the church. Once they were back they could look at doctrine. Paul III did not want this as refor … [Click Below for Full Description]

BESLER, Basil (1561-1629)
Eichstatt, 1640. Hand-coloured engraving. In excellent condition with the exception of some paper loss on the left margin and in the bottom left corner. 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.

In 1633 he and his brother-in=law (Henry Hodicus) produced the two volume edition of the Mercator Atlas. The present map shows Mexico City and points west, and the west coast of Mexico shown from present day Tuxpan to Acapulco de Juarez. A large cartouche shows a lion holding a sword on the top of the royal shield of Spain, which is flanked by a man and woman in Greek style togas. Portinaro and Knirsch p.315.

Das ist: Gründliche Beschreibung und Unterricht, wie solches herzliche und hochnützliche Astronomische Instrument auf allerley Polus Höh so wohl auch nach eines jeden selbst gefälligen Gröss auffgerissen und verfertigt werden soll. + De usu Astrolabii, Posterior Pars. [3rd edition ?]. 2 parts in one. Nürnberg: Paulus Fürst c. 1640, gedruckt bey Christoff Gerhard. With copperengraved titlepage (+ printed) and 21 textual copperengravings. 136 + 64 pp. Bound in contemporary vellum with a little marks of age. Ties missing. Few wormholes. Few pages weakly browning. A very attractive copy.. Zinner states that this work is printed in Nürnberg 1613 and asks for an appendix of 15 extra plates to vol. 2. It seems to be incorrect, and he has probably never seen the edition from 1613. The Royal Library in Copenhagen has two copies of this publication. One copy with printed date 1613 and printed by Balthazer Camox and one copy undated and printed by Paulus Fürst (c. 1605-1666), both consist of 15 copperplates in 4to, printed from the same plates - among them a world map. The copy from Samuels Verplank Hoffmann´s Library has the re-printed Paulus Fürst version, which then seems to be a second edition of Astrolabium, withbound.

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.

ANGO, Pierre.
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 Pardie … [Click Below for Full Description]

William Somner (1598-1669) was born and educated in Canterbury, the son of the registrar of the court. His patron, Archbishop Laud, to whom the book is dedicated, appointed him registrar of the ecclesiastical courts and the lengthy description of the cathedral is thoroughly Laudian in tone.

Contemporary calf with early 20th-century reback. Engraved general title by William Marshall, woodcut illustrations and diagrams in the text, final errata leaf.

First complete edition, containing important revisions to the first book and, for the first time, the "second Booke". The Discovery (first published 1638) and the Discourse together constitute "One of the first important books of modern 'popular science,' a work written by a man who knew the technicalities of science, yet who … had the ability to explain those technicalities to the general reader" (Nicholson). This 1640 edition contains a new section added to the first book on the then-sensational idea of voyaging to the moon, with associated scientific discussions of gravity and the nature and height of the atmosphere. This discourse "established the conventions of the moon-voyage for more than a century" (Nicholson).

Epictetus, Arrian, and] Simplicius of Cilicia, Cl. Salmasii, and Johanne Elichmanno
1640. Four works bound as one (Simplicius’ Commentary on Epictetus’ Enchiridion, or compilation of practical precepts; Claude Saumaise, Commentary on Epictetus and Simplicius; parallel Greek, Latin, and Arabic texts arranged by Johan Elichman of the Tabula of Cebes (Anon.) together with the Aurea Carmina of Pythagorus. Lugduni Batavorum [Leiden]: Johannis Maire, 1640 ([xviii], 332, index; 329, indices; [xxxii], 88; 15). Quarto (20 cm.) in modern calf, titles to spine, five raised bands; new endpapers, headbands. Epictetus (c. 55- 135) was the late Stoic philosopher and teacher concerned with questions of ethics (as in, how to live one’s life), and the Enchiridion, a collection of his teachings and sayings, was collected and preserved by his student Arrian. Simplicius of Cilicia (c. 490- 560), said to be one of the last neo-Platonists, also wrote commentaries on Aristotle. Claude Saumaise (1588- 1653) was professor at Leiden and something of an academic controversialist for hire, as witness his duel with Milton over the rights of monarchs (and Charles in particular). He evidently never was at a loss for words, in any of several languages, and as another description, citing Brunet, notes much given to ‘commentaire prolixe’. An attractive copy bound in suitably plain seventeenth century fashion, a few period ms. notes in Greek. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Bound in the original trade binding, without sophistication. Minor soiling and wear to the boards, spine holding firm, but chipped and cracked at the ends. Rather substantial wear to the edges of the preliminary and final pages, internal contents are generally clean. & & The author's first book, written as a political allegory of the first third of the 17th century. This copy with a crucial "key," written in a contemporary hand on the front end paper, to the identities of the people and places encrypted in the allegory. For anyone other than a contemporary courtesan, understanding this work without the benefit of a detailed key, such as this one, would be quite a challenge.

BESLER, Basil (1561-1629)
Eichstatt 1640 - 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. Hand-coloured engraving.
