In 1614 he went to India via the Cape, and arranged the commercial treaty which laid the foundation of the greatness of British India. He was greatly respected in Europe and the near East, where he did a great deal for the merchants operating there.

Legatura strettamente coeva in pergamena molle con titoli manoscritti al dorso. Una delle tavole fuori testo rifilata (ma verosimilmente con pochissima perdita di testo). Esemplare parzialmente slegato con qualche mancanza di pergamena alla cuffia superiore ed agli angoli dei piatti, peraltro genuino, marginoso e ben conservato. Si tratta della seconda edizione italiana (prima edita nel 1606) di un'opera composta in idioma spagnolo nel 1592. Ampiamente celebrato dalle principali bibliografie, questo trattato offre un ampio panorama sullo stato dell'artiglieria alla fine del XVI secolo. Munito di un affascinante apparato iconografico. Non comune. Cfr. Olschki: ""Cet ouvrage donne mieux qu'aucun autre livre une idée de l'artillerie au XVI. siècle. Nombreuses figures fort interessantes pour l'histoire des sciences militaires"".

        America Septentrionalis

      Amsterdam, 1641. unbound. very good. Map. Engraving with hand coloring. Image measures 18 1/8" x 21.5". Beautiful early double page map of North America, Central America and the West Indies. Decorative elements include two ornate cartouches, ships, sea monsters and various native animals. Notable inclusions are Iames Towne (Jamestown) in Virginia, Manhates (Manhatten), Lake Champlain and an early reference to the Great Lakes (Lac des Iroquois). California is shown as an island. According to Burden, this particular map, because of its extensive distribution, was one of the most influential pieces to perpetuate the myth of the Island of California. This is the second state of the map with no text on the verso. Several small scattered tears to edges, minor toning to centerfold and several repairs. Henricus Hondius (1594-1629) was the youngest son of Jodocus Hondius, the prolific Flemish mapmaker. Johannes Jansson the younger (1588-1664) came from a similarly influential mapmaking family, and joined Hondius as partner around 1630.

      In-4 p. (mm. 287x187), 5 voll. di cui: 4 in mz. pergam. ottocentesca (dorso a cordoni con tit. oro su 3 tasselli) e 1 in p. pergam. settecentesca (risg. rifatti). L'opera, con 5 bei frontesp./antiporte allegorici inc. in rame da Cesare Bassano, ornata da vari grandi capilett. figur. inc. su legno, è così composta: I- "Historiae Patriae libri X" (1641), 14 cc.nn. (compreso frontesp./antip.), 770 pp.num. Questo primo vol. della celebre storia di Milano del Ripamonti (l'unico pubblicato durante la vita dell'A.) si presenta come deca III della Storia Patria, facendo seguito ai 20 libri di Tristano Calchi (Milano, Malatesta, 1628). Vi si narra infatti la storia di Milano dal 1313 (anno a cui giungeva l'op. del Calchi) al 1558. Il Cat. Hoepli,876 osserva giustamente che i libri XXI e XXII della storia del Calchi, riguardanti gli anni 1313-1323, furono pubblicati postumi nel 1644 e non erano quindi noti al Ripamonti. II - "Historiae Patriae libri VII" (1643), 16 cc.nn. (incluso frontesp./antip.), 417 pp.num., 1 c.b. Questo secondo vol. costituisce la deca IV delle Storie Patrie, dal 1559 al 1584, ed è in gran parte dedicato all'episcopato di S. Carlo Borromeo; fu pubblicato postumo a cura di Stefano Sclatter, o, più probabilmente, del Legnano. III - "Historiae Patriae decadis V, libri VI" (s.d., 1643 ca.), 22 cc.nn. (inclusi il frontesp./antip. e il ritratto dell'A.), pp.num. 419. Manca, come sovente, il ritratto del Card. Borromeo. Il volume contiene la biografia del Cardinal Federico Borromeo. IV - "Historiae Patriae libri VIII" (1648), 2 parti in 1 vol. (rileg. in p. pergam.). Parte I: 5 cc.nn. (manca l'ultima bianca.), 334 pp.num. + 8 cc.nn. (1 c. all'inizio di ciasc. libro per l'"Epitoma") + 8 cc.nn. (alla fine al libro II, tra le pp. 48 e 49) + 1 c.nn. (alla fine del libro VIII). Manca 1 c. bianca alla fine del libro V /// Parte II: 1 c.b., 218 pp.num., 12 cc.nn. di Indice - E? questo l?ultimo vol. (deca VI, anni 1613-1641), pubblicato a cura di Orazio Landi o (secondo il Coleti) da Girolamo Legnano. Del Legnano è l'elogio dell'A. posto in fine all'VIII libro. Oltre agli 8 libri (i primi tre dei quali portano il tit.: "De Bello Mantuano"), il vol. contiene diversi frammenti postumi dell'A., fra i quali la traduz. latina del ?'Ritratto del privato politico christiano?' di Virgilio Malvezzi. V - "Historiarum libri octo" (1650 ca.), con 13 cc.nn. (inclusi frontesp./antip. e il ritratto di Filippo II - Manca quello dell'A.), (8),433 pp.num. (inoltre, 4 pp.nn. si trovano fra le pp. 53-54 e 112-113; invece 2 pp.nn. sono tra le pp. 168-69, 226-27, 279-80, 336-37, 384-85, tutte corrispondenti alle "Epitome") - Questo vol., pubblicato a cura dello Sclatter, s'intitola "Rerum Hispaniarum a Philippo II regnante libri VIII": non fa quindi parte delle "Historiae Patriae" ma va unito ai voll. precedenti per completare la serie degli scritti storici dell'A. pubblicati da Sclatter, Legnano e Landi e stampati da Malatesta". Tutta la raccolta è in "edizione originale". Cfr. Cat. Piantanida,I,848 e II,4947 - Cat. Hoepli,876 - Argelati,II,I,1230 - Predari,182 - Brunet,I,1469 - Coleti,112 - Lozzi,I,2678. Opera molto importante e rara a trovarsi completa. Alessandro Manzoni nei suoi Promessi Sposi la cita molte volte. Fresco esemplare su carta distinta, ben conservato.

        Les Meditations metaphysiques, de Rene Des-Cartes, touchant la premiere philosophie. Dedie'es a messieurs de Sorbone. Nouvellement divise'es par articles avec des sommaires à costé, & avec des renuois des articles aux Objections

      Third French Edition, revised and corrected. 4to. pp. [38], 754. Decorative initials and ornamental head pieces at the beginning of each chapter. Contemporary calf boards (rubbed, corners neatly restored) re-backed including new hand sewn headbands. Original end papers are preserved but worn at the edges. Two names are written in a contemporary hand at the top of the title page (1 name is crossed out). Another name (also crossed out) is inscribed beneath the imprint; a small shelf number is written in the upper right corner. Pages are generally clean with occasional minor soiling and spotting. A narrow piece is missing from the upper margins of pp. 311-320 (4 cm. long x 5-7 mm. deep) - either from rough opening or from a manufacturing error; brown ink spot on fore-edge of text block; leaf T2 marked S2. Leaves remain untrimmed after last re-sewing. Descartes's "Meditations metaphysiques" was first published in Latin as "Meditationes de prima philosophia" (1641). The first French edition (printed in 1647) was produced by the Duc de Luynes under Decartes supervision. De Luynes translated the first part and Claude Clerselier the second. The "Meditations" offer the most detailed presentation of Descartes metaphysical system. [Tchemerzine IV, p.201-202; Brunet I, 609; Querard 758].

        LEICESTER'S COMMON-WEALTH. Conceived, spoken and published with most earnest protestation of dutifull goodwill and affection towards this realme. Whereunto is added Leicesters-ghost

      London, no printer named, Printed anno Dom. MDCXLI. [1641]. EDITION UNKNOWN, 1641, small 8vo, approximately 150 x 95 mm, 6 x 3½ inches, engraved portrait frontispiece signed: W Marshall sculpsit, pages: [8], 88, 81-128, 137-183, [1]; 34, jumps in pagination as in all copies, see ESTC R12740. LACKS THE TITLE PAGE TO LEICESTER'S GHOST, A1, bound in full brown morocco, gilt lettering and decoration to spine, gilt decoration to covers and edges of covers, all edges gilt and gauffered, marbled endpapers, binder has put the wrong date at bottom of spine. Binding slighty rubbed, title page slightly dusty, pale age-browning to margins, occasional small fox spot, otherwise a very good copy in an attractive binding. Leicester's Commonwealth (originally titled The Copie of a Leter wryten by a Master of Arts of Cambrige) (1584) is a scurrilous tract that circulated in Elizabethan England and which attacked Queen Elizabeth I's favourite, Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester. The work functioned as Roman Catholic propaganda against the political and religious policy of Elizabeth I's regime, in particular the Puritan sympathies fostered by Leicester. In doing so it portrayed Leicester as an amoral opportunist of "almost satanic malevolence", and circulated lurid stories of his scandalous deeds and his dangerous plots. The text is presented as "a letter written by a Master of Art of Cambridge to his friend in London, concerning some talk passed of late between two worshipful and grave men about the present state and some proceedings of the Earl of Leicester and his friends in England." The title "Leicester's Commonwealth" was first used in the 1641 edition. The book highly influenced Leicester's historical reputation in the ensuing centuries. Taken from Wikipedia.

Henric Rosenius (1629-1703) föddes i Reval och var son till Bogislav von Rosen. Han gjorde en militär karriär och gifte sig i Sverige med Elisabeth Helen von Uexküll. Johan Freinshemius (1608-60), studerade tillsammans med Schefferus i Strassburg under Matthias Bernegger, vars dotter han sedan gifte sig med. Han blev först uppmärksammad som filolog med sina utgåvar av Florus (1632) och Curtius (1639). Dessa utgavs i nära samarbete med läraren Bernegger, som -i sitt hus- hade ett eget tryckeri. År 1642 blev han kallad till den skytteanska professuren i Uppsala, och blev därmed den förste i raden av lärde som drottning Kristina kallade till Sverige. 1647 blev han av henne utnämnd till kunglig bibliotekarie och svensk rikshistoriograf. Tacitus tillhörde de författare som han rekommenderade Kristina och diskuterade med henne. Uppmuntrad av henne, utgav han även i Stockholm 1649 första delen av sina ersättningar av Livius förlorade böcker, "Supplementorum Livianorum ad Christiam Reginam"
