        Trigonometry: or, the doctrine of triangles. First written in Latin, by Bartholomew Pitiscus of Grunberg in Silesia, and now translated into English by Ra: Handson. Whereunto is added (for the mariners use) certaine nauticall questions, together with the finding of the variation of the compasse. All performed arithmetically, without map, sphere, globe, or astrolabe, by the said R. H. [Bound with, as issued:] A canon of triangles: or, the tables, of sines, tangents, and secants, the radius assumed to be 100,000.

      London: printed by T. P. for G. Hurlock, n.d. (1642?). - [8],208 pp. [Bound with, as issued:] A canon of triangles: or, the tables, of sines, tangents, and secants, the radius assumed to be 100,000. London: printed for John Tap, 1630. 92p., unnumbered. Two vols. in one, sm. 4to, early speckled calf, spine gilt, brown morocco label (spine rubbed, upper cover detached). With numerous woodcut diagrams. Aside from the loose cover, a very good crisp copy; bookplate and small blindstamps of the Macclesfield library. STC 19966 and 19968a (also listed as Wing P2297A); Adams and Waters, English Maritime Books, 2900. Third edition in English; preceded by editions of 1614 and 1630, as translated, with additional material, from the Latin text published at Heidelberg in 1595 (with the "Canon," or tables of trigonometrical functions, added in 1600). The revised STC tentatively assigns this printing of the Pitiscus text to 1642, without explanation; rights to the book had been assigned to George Hurlock in 1634. The supplementary tables of sines, etc., are the sheets as printed in 1630, with the original title-page preserved. Pitiscus was the first to use the term trigonometry, and he is sometimes credited as well with having invented the decimal point, as adapted by Napier in his work on logarithms. "Although Pitiscus worked much in the theological field, his proper abilities concerned mathematics, and particularly trigonometry. His achievements in this field are important in two respects: he revised the tables of Rheticus to make them more exact, and he wrote an excellent systematic textbook on trigonometry, in which he used all six of the trigonometric functions." -- DSB, Of additional interest is the section (pp. 177-208) added by the translator Ralph Handson, describing some of the uses of trigonometry in solving problems of navigation; in 1633 Handson also published a broadside relating to bookkeeping, of which a single imperfect copy survives.

        Mémoires sur les actions les plus éclatantes et sur les droits les plus prestigieux des Comtes et Ducs, Chefs de la Royale Maison de Savoie (Manuscrit)

      - Trois volumes in-folio sur cinq, comprenant au Tome I : de Berold de Saxe, premier Comte de Savoie à Amédée Septième. 214 pages avec une préface de l'auteur. Tome IV : Charles Emmanuel Premier. 190 pages. Tomes V : de Victor Amédé Premier à Charles Emmanuel Second. 139 pages. Histoire finissant en 1642 et se terminant par « Fin des mémoires de Savoie composées par le C.R. ». Cet ensemble est une copie tout début XVIIIè du manuscrit jamais publié du Chanoine Rambert de la Sainte Chapelle de Chambéry, mort en 1728. On fait référence à cet ouvrage dans « Manno » biblio tome 1, « Foras » Tome 5, pages 57 à 60, « Grillet » Tome 2, page 143, « S.S.H.A » Tome 28, pages XXXIII à XXXVII. Deux exemplaires complets existent à la bibliothèque Royale de Turin, et un exemplaire chambérien est passé dans les mains de Mr Mugnier qui le considère, quoique criticable, d'une agréable écriture. En effet on y trouve Berold de Saxe, totalement inventé afin de créer une filiation honorable à la famille de Savoie, mais aussi de multiples anecdotes forts curieuses, jamais justifiées dans leur provenance. Le Chanoine Rambert fut Evèque d'Aoste en 1727 juste avant sa mort lors de son voyage à Chambéry en 1728. Il fait partie de la famille chargé de la Baronnie de Chatillon et des Seigneurs de Chautagne. Les 3 volumes manuscrits sont reliés dans un carton d'époque avec dos devenu muet avec les marges frottés. Le tome IV a des traces d'humidité et le tome V une trace de vers. Aucun manque de texte, bien lisible d'une belle écriture large. Document exceptionnellement rare malgré le manque des tomes II et III. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        De idololatria liber, cum interpretatione latina, & notis Dionysii Vossii. [Bound with:] VOSSIUS, Gerardus Joannes. De theologia gentili, et physiologia Christiana, sive, De origine ac progressu idololatriae, ad veterum gesta, ac rerum naturam, reductae: de que naturae mirandis, quibus homo adducitur ad Deum. Liber I, et II

      Amsterdam: Jioh, & Corneium Blaeu, 1642 - Scarce second edition of Maimonides' tract on idolatry with an important new foreword "to the Reader" by Isaac Vossius, brother of the recently deceased translator, Dionysius Vossius (1612-1642), as well as a new dedicatory poem by Caspar Barlaeus. Maimonides' text is usually accompanied, as it is here, by the massive commentary by Gerardus Vossius (father of Isaac and Dionysius) DE THEOLOGIA GENTILI - a book said to have been an iinfluence on Isaac Newton; his library contained an "extensively dog-eared" copy of the book (John Harrison, THE LIBRARY OF ISAAC NEWTON, Cambridge University Press, p. 258). This particular copy has a very distinguished provenance. Dr. Frederic Gardiner was an Episcopal clergyman, Biblican scholar, founder of the American Exegetical Society, and author of several books (including a Harmony of the Gospels). Henry Ferguson, of Stamford, Ct., "studied theology in the Berkeley Divinity School. In 1872 he was made rector of Christ Church in Exeter, N. H., and in 1878 rector of Trinity Church, Claremont, in the same state. In 1883 he became professor of history and political economy in Trinity College, a position he filled with distinguished credit until commencement in 1906, when he resigned to become rector of St. Paul's School, Concord, N. H. In 1873 he married Emma J. Gardiner, daughter of Professor Gardiner of the Berkeley Divinity School - His original specialty was Hebrew-" (Norris Galpin Osborn, ed., MEN OF MARK IN CONNECTICUT, Vol I, p. 132) Second edition of each title. 2 books bound in one volume vols., 4to. Publisher's device on title pages; woodcut tailpieces, ornamental initials. Maimonides text in Hebrew with facing Latin translation by Vossius. [12], 1-174. [2]; [12], 304; xvii, [19], 305-732, x, [30]. Contemporary vellum, with ms. spine title, covers slightly soiled, upper joint cracked.

FREDERIC GARDINER") and signed by Gardiner on the front pastedown "Leipzig 1854". OCLC: 37317703 (one copy in US); Vossius: Brunet, V, col. 1373, for editions of 1641 and 1668.

        Academias morales de las musas ?.

      Bordeaux, Pedro de la Court, 1642. - Copper-engraved title-page. Full-page copper-engraved portrait. Woodcut initials, elaborate woodcut headpiece at beginning of dedication, repeated on pp. 1, 115, 227, and 323, other woodcut headpieces and typographical vignettes. Ruled divisional titles on pp. 75, 181, and 275. Engraved title, (12 ll.), engraved portrait, 478 pp., (2 ll.). Leaves ii and ii2 bound after ii3 and ii4; several leaves incorrectly signed. 4°, nineteenth century quarter calf over marbled boards (worming to leather on upper cover), two black leather labels, gilt letter, edges sprinkled red. Title backed. Minor worming, almost exclusively in margins, but touching a few letters of text. Some small, fairly light waterstains, restricted to first 60 or so pages, a bit larger and slightly heavier in first few leaves. Light browning. Overall almost in good condition. ---- FIRST EDITIONS of both works.Scholarly accounts of the author's life differ widely, and much research remains to be done to sort out the conflicting assertions, although the following may be reasonably accurate. Enriquez Gomez (1600-1663), the son of Portuguese Jews, was probably born in Cuenca (some say Segovia, others Lisbon). Entering the military at the age of 20, he rose to the rank of captain before fleeing to France in 1636 amid growing suspicions concerning his religious beliefs. He lived in Bordeaux, Rouen, and Paris, where he secured an appointment as secretary to Louis XIII. While in France Enriquez Gomez also pursued a distinguished career as a novelist, poet, and playwright. There are rumors of earlier @pliegos or @sueltas; his first certain published book (preceded only by a pamphlet, @Triumpho lusitano, which appeared in 1641), @Academias morales (Bordeaux, 1642), contains various poetical works and four comedias. Surely due to its rarity, some bibliographers, never having seen a copy, repeat the erroneous and improbable date of 1612 instead of 1642 for the first edition. Two years later he published perhaps his best-known work, the picaresque novel @El siglo pitagórico y vida de D. Gregorio Guadaña (Rouen, 1644). Enriquez Gomez's dramatic output numbers over two dozen comedias - most composed in the Calderonian manner - and possibly includes several written under the pseudonym(?) Fernando de Zárate. The Inquisition was a frequent target of Enriquez Gomez's pen, especially in the second part of his @Política angélica (Rouen, 1647) where he called for various reforms, particularly relaxation of its emphasis on @limpieza de sangre which had perhaps prompted his own flight a decade earlier. Despite having been burned in effigy at an auto da fé in Seville in 1660, Enriquez Gomez returned there shortly afterward. He was arrested by the Inquisition and died in Seville in 1663, perhaps while still imprisoned.---- @Répertoire bibliographique des livres imprimés en France au XVIIe siècle XIV, 153, no. 975 (without mention of the engraved title or engraved portrait; locating 6 copies including the BL and HSA).

        La Iglesia Militante, Cronologia Sacra y epitome historial de todo quanto ha sucedido en ella prospero y adverso

      - Registering events in the World associated with the Church, including vast references to its progress in America and Asia. 1642. Madrid. Francisco Martinez Acosta. In 8vo (200 mm x 146 mm). 1 [blank] + 11 ff. + 348 + 40 ff. + 1 [blank]. Contemporary vellum, spine lettered in ink, nearly detached, else very good. Very good copy, some pages lightly browned; else fine. First edition. A widely comprehensive work on the history of the Catholic Church, from the very beginning towards the Age of Discovery; despite the fact that it contains abundant information on the Americas, the work doesn´t appear to be found in Sabin. It is rich in details of the progress of the Society of Jesus in both Asia and America. In fact, it seems that every event associated with the Church all over the world was intended to be registered. It also doesn´t appear to be a common book, not a copy is registered as having sold at auction. Embellished with a handsome engraved title page by Navarro. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Brasilia [Brazil]

      1642 - An important and early chart of eastern Brazil. c.1642. Amsterdam. A very good example, wide margins, contemporary colour. 500 mm x 385 mm. The map features strong detail of the coastline, with some rather fictitious places and an exaggerated eastern tip. By the first half of the 17th century, Brazilian inland was mostly unknown; this map reflects the relative ignorance regarding the geographical reality of the immense landmass. Embellished with two cartouches –one with the Dutch coat of arms-, two compass roses, and sailing ships. Published in Blaeu’s Atlas Maior, Dutch edition.

        Ã” [He Kaine Diatheke]

      Paris: Imprimerie Royale, 1642. Fol., (4), 453, (3) pp. [A-Iii4]. Text in Ancient Greek (Koine). Strong contemporary mottled calf binding with minor restoration, top cover stamped in gilt with the insignia of the Earl of Coningsby, gilt lettering and decoration to backstrip. Engraved decorations throughout, including an engraved title-page by Claude Mellan. Page 291 (PaulÕs 2nd Corinthians, Chpt. 6) with stains, though text still legible. Very good. GaramondÕs Greek types from mid-sixteenth century, used at the Estienne dynasty of printers, accepted still as the most beautiful Greek types ever devised, became a precious part of the equipment of the Imprimerie Royale when Richelieu established it in 1640; and among the splendid early folios from the Imprimerie Royale was this Greek Testament of 1642, known as the Mazarin edition. This copy came from the library of Leonard and Lisa Baskin with their several book labels.& & ÔA handsome copy of the so-called Ã’Mazarin editionÓ of the Greek New Testament. The Imprimerie Royale had been established in 1640, at the behest of Cardinal Richelieu; it produced a number of distinguished editions in its first years. Cardinal Mzarin assumed control of the press (and much else besides) on RichelieuÕs death in 1642; the present edition was printed under his auspices. Textually, it is closely based on the Elzevir edition of [1624]; it adds a 30 page appendix of Ã’Variae lectiones.Ó It is an attractive edition, well-printed in a clear Greek face, and with generously proportioned margins; the engraved decorative material works very well with the letterpress text, and the title-page, drawn & engraved by the great Claude Mellan, is particularly pleasing (a version of the design was adapted for use by the Oxfod University printers). Updike called the edition Ã’fine,Ó Darlow and Moule Ã’magnificent,Ó and Dibdin Ã’splendid.Ó & & Ã’One of the impressive folios from the first generation of books printed at the Manufacture Royale de lÕImprimerie, which Richelieau had persuaded Louis XIII to create two years earlier, this New Testament shoes off the increased fonts of the Grecs du Roi to excellent effectÓ (Fletcher, Printing for Kingdom, Empire, and Republic: Treasures from the Archives of the Imprimerie Royale, p. 77).& & Updike, Printing Types, 1927, p. 240; Darlow & Moule 4687; Dibdin, Greek and Latin Classics. 4th ed. Vol. 1, p. 137.

      Ad 1: Alden & Landis 652/111; Borba de Moraes, p. 413; JCB II, p. 418; Sabin 33014; ad 2: V.d. Linde, David Joris 242; STCN (7 copies); cf. Mennonite Encyclopedia I, pp. 360-361. The first edition of a learned essay on the origins of the American Indians. It was a reply to Grotius who had argued in 1642 that the American Indians were descendants of Norsemen, Ethiopians, and Chinese, basing his theory mainly on linguistic arguments. Hornius criticized Grotius's philological approach and placed the origins of the American peoples in Scythia, Phoenicia, Carthage and China. The work is bound with Blesdijk's famous biography of the Anabaptist leader David Joris, edited by Jacobus Revius. First published in 1559, it remains the most important source for the life and teaching of David Joris.Fine copies.

Small 4to, approximately 200 x 140 mm, 7¾ x 5½ inches, printer's pictorial device on title page, title page printed red and black, 2 engraved plates of the cabbalistic tree, pages: (8), 208, lacking final Errata leaf, bound modern full calf, ornate blind stamped border to covers, raised bands to spine, small blind motif in compartments, gilt lettered red morocco label, new endpapers.

A good plus copy of a rare book lacking only the Errata leaf. This work on the Sepher Yetzirah (Sefer Yezir and various other spellings) or "Book of Formation", perhaps the oldest Rabbinical treatise of Kabalistic philosophy which is still extant, originates possibly from as early as the third centuiry AD. The first Latin translation was made by Guillaume Postel and published in Paris in 1552; a second translation by Johannes Pistorius was published in the In Tomas Primus of "Artis Cabalisticae" in Basle in 1587. Rittangel (1606 - 1652) was Professor of Hebrew at the University of Konigsberg and his version is the first to give parallel texts. He also added the "32 Paths of Wisdom" in Hebrew and Latin, followed by the commentary on the the Paths of Wisdom (also in Latin and Hebrew), and an explanation by him of it. The commentary is now believed to be by the 14th century writer Joseph ben Shalom ha - Ashkenazi. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE. FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST. POSTAGE AT COST.

        Discurso politico sobre o se aver de largar a Coroa de Portugal, Angola, S. Thome, & Maranhão, exclamado aos Altos, & Poderosos Estados de Olanda

      Lisbon, 1642. Protest against the actions of the Dutch Admiral Corneliszon Jol in Africa and Brazil. 1642. Lisbon. Antonio Alvarez. In 4to (190 mm x 140). 6 ff. Modern marbled boards, leather label on upper board. Some light damp staining, overall fine.First edition in Portuguese. The work was translated from "Copia primae allegationis ... legatus ad ... ordines generales Foederati Belgij" (Hague, 1642). Andrada Leitão protests against the activities of Admiral Cornelius Corneliszon Jol (also known as Pé de Pau) and other attacks on Portuguese possessions by the Dutch, in violation of the ten-year peace treaties between their country and Portugal signed in 1641 and 1642. He mentions specifically the fleet under Jol that went to Angola and S. Thomé, and the activities of the same Admiral in Maranhão and Pernambuco. He also argues that the newly independent kingdom of Portugal should not be treated as a vassal of Spain, with whom the Dutch were at war.Andrade Leitão (d. 1655) was chosen to pronounce an oration at D. João IV's coronation in 1640, and became so trusted by D. João that he was appointed Ambassador Plenipotentiary to England and then to Holland. He also went as Ambassador Plenipotentiary to the peace congress at Munster and Osnaburg in Westphalia.Borba de Moraes (1983) I, 464 ("rare"). Innocencio II, 334 ("raros e estimados").

I begyndelsen af Christian IV's regeringstid (1590) optrykte Matz Wingaard alle pa den tid gaeldende love svarende til de 8 numre af denne bogs indhold. Den mest omfangsrige er Jyske Lov, som pa dette tidspunkt havde vundet haevd pa at gaelde for hele Kongeriget og kongens dele af Hertugdömmerne. I Christian IV's regeringstid udkom flere hundrede enkelte forordninger og mindre love; nogle af disse blev i 1615 samlet i den sakaldte Lille Reces, og endelig i 1643 i et större vaerk: Store Reces. Peter Hake trykte Recessen og de andre pa den tid gaeldende bestemmelser, herunder hele samlingen, som Wingaard havde trykt. Da behovet for lovtrykkene var stort, kopierede Salomon Sartor, Niels Michelsen og Jörgen Hantsch Wingaards tryk, sa de i hele fremtoningen ligner 1590-trykene, ogsa med det falske trykar 1590, men uden bogtrykkerangivelse. Niels Michelsen, der senere blev Norges förste bogtrykker, har med stor sandsynlighed trykt smatrykkene pa bestilling af netop Salomon Sartor; men han lavede ikke noget optryk af Jyske Lov, det gjorde kun Sartor og den tredie "trykforfalsker" Jörgen Hantsch. Sartors tryk er iövrigt delvist trykt med materiel, som han overtog efter afdöde Matz Wingaard 1600. <br>Bibl. Dan. I, 628-29. Thesaurus 168 + 427. Laur.

Title page with inscription partially erased and with other ownership inscription "Don Silvestre de Prado", a few headlines just touched by the binder?s cropping, foxing and damp here and there as always for the paper used, few scattered worm holes ?mainly marginal-, else fine.First edition in Spanish, after the original Portuguese (1641); this edition is remarkably rare, as is the Portuguese. It was submitted to translations into German, Latin and English ("The history of that great and renowned monarchy", 1655). This work constitutes one of the best sources of information on China of the 17th century. Semedo, a keen observer, included information on its inhabitants and their ethnography, military affairs, manners, daily life, religious inclinations of the Chinese, their worship, progress of the Society of Jesus in the Empire, short notes on the fauna, military costumes, and culinary notes as that of ff. 97, providing a culinary and table-manners explanation of China, differentiating the visitor, details the lack of forks and knifes (substitued) by sticks, and makes an intriguing observation, of the lack of spices at the table, even though they have many "ni sal, ni pimienta; si vinagre, i mostaza, i otros apetitos, que los tienen varios, i excelentes".Semedo (1586 ? 1658) was a Portuguese Jesuit; he arrived in China in 1613 after passing by Goa, to Macao first (1610) and then Nanjing, on board the Nossa Sra. Do Vencimiento; unlike his colleagues, remained in the south of China, rather than Peking. As Magalhaes "[Semedo] continued to develop and implement Ricci?s program of accommodation... they were highly capable Jesuits who achieved a high degree of proficiency in the Chinese language and a sophisticated understanding of Chinese culture and society" (Curious Land. Jesuit Accommodation and the origins of Sinology, David E. Mungello). His work lead to his appointment as Vice-Provincial of the China Mission, spending several months in captivity in Canton up to his release with the mediation of Fr. Schall, he remained there until his death, in 1658. He gained notoriety for his work and respect of the Chinese language, as well as for his passion for the country?s culture "In contrast to such Jesuits as Frs. Kircher or Grueber, Semedo was far less critical of Chinese religions. He manifested that fondness and respect for the Chinese which came to mark the attitudes of so many Jesuits of long-time residence in China".Cf. Sommervogel, vol. 7, col. 1114, no. 4.
