BLAEU, Willem
Joan and Cornelis Blaeu,, Amsterdam, 1642 - Blaeu's user's manual for globes, spheres and sundials 4to. (205 by 160mm), [9] ff. 277pp., numerous diagrams and woodcut illustrations within text, contemporary marginalia to title and a few leaves, some light dampstaining, final leaf with lower part cut off, contemporary vellum, title in manuscript to spine. Scarce first French edition of the great cartographer's handbook to his famous globes and spheres, published by his sons Joan and Cornelis. The master globe-maker, who had recently produced the largest globes in the world to date (68 cm in diameter), authored the Institution Astronomique so that his customers might get the most out of their celestial and terrestrial globes. Blaeu gives a detailed explanation of the various parts of a globe, followed by a series of nearly 150 exercises. By positioning your terrestrial globe as Blaeu directs, it is a simple matter to determine the time in different parts of the world, or to ascertain the length of a day in your hometown of Amsterdam at any given season. There are exercises for both the celestial sphere concerning the ascendancy of certain constellations and the terrestrial globe locating a town in Indonesia given its coordinates or utilising rhumb lines to learn about navigation. The Institution Astronomique is divided into two parts, the first following the improper hypothesis of Ptolemy, the second following the true Copernican hypothesis, similar in arrangement to Galileo's Dialogo. Blaeu explains that he devotes a great many pages to the Ptolemaic system only because it is … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Pallavicino, Ferrante].
12mo. (153) pp., final blank f. Marbled half calf (c. 1780) with giltstamped spine labels and floral endpapers. All edges sprinkled in red. Almost unobtainable first edition of the author's most notorious work: "Prima ediz. stamp. colla falsa data di Cambrai nel 1642" (Libr. Vinciana, p. 21). The "libro più pornografico e più aretinesco del '600" (Q. Marini, P. Aretino nel '600, in: P. Aretino nel cinquecentenario della nascita, p. 486). "The Rhetoric of Whores"), a scandalous anti-Jesuit work, "demonstrates why Pallavicino was the only Italian author of his epoch capable of a coherent vision that integrated satire, skepticism, and naturalistic morality" (Muir, Culture Wars [Cambridge: Harvard, 2007], p. 90). The book is written in the form of a dialogue between an aged prostitute and her naive apprentice. The fifteen lessons of the old whore were based on Cipriano Suarez's "De arte rhetorica", the manual used in Jesuit schools. Muir pointedly notes, "By systematically pursuing the parallels between rhetorical persuasion and erotic seduction, Pallavicino demonstrates how the high art of rhetoric has the same instrumental character as the lowly deceptions of the prostitute." - Some browning throughout. Prettily bound; removed from the Nádasdy library with stamp on title page. Exceedingly rare: no copy in auction records internationally; the earliest recorded copy sold in 1960 (another false "Cambrai" imprint, dated 1644). BL (Italian Books) 647. OCLC 65523066. Cf. Libr.

Bella marca editoriale in fine: Ercole con la clava uccide l'Idra di Lerna. Ai suoi piedi, una fiaccola ed una spada. Sullo sfondo una palma. Motto su un nastro: Invidia virtute superavit. Questa edizione  identica alla prima se non per il mancato inserimento delle prime pagine di dedicatoria e del non sempre presente ritratto di Aldrovandi. Macchie di inchiostro al frontespizio ma per il resto ottimo esemplare.

A droite figure la basilique, sans le campanile qui fut construit au XVIII° siècle. Au large de la ville, dans l'Adriatique, on distingue une scène de bataille navale contre les Turcs. Avec 21 légendes. Jean Boisseau fut géographe et généalogiste français. Son Théâtre des Citez est l'un des plus rares recueils de vues français, dont les planches, publiées entre 1642 et 1648, sont le plus souvent conservées à l'état isolé. Bel exemplaire.

Israel SILVESTRE (Nancy, 1621 - Parigi, 1691).
1642. Acquaforte, 1642, firmata in lastra in basso. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata al rame, piccoli restauri perfettamente eseguiti, per il resto in buono stato di conservazione. Inusuale veduta panoramica della città, presa dalle pendici di Monte Mario. La Basilica, in primo piano, è disegnata con grande dettaglio, come pure il panorama della città, dove sono riconoscibili numerose opere architettoniche. Il Silvestre, incisore e disegnatore, nasce a Nancy nel 1621. Tra il 1638 e il 1641 viaggiò in Italia; si hanno notizie della sua presenza nella Penisola ancora nel 1643 e nel 1653. Il suo stile fu, all'inizio, piuttosto sciolto, ma dal 1643 in poi divenne più raffinato e delicato, acquisendo accuratezza e precisione senza essere asciutto, risultando a volte simile a quello di Jacques Callot o di Stefano della Bella, con i quali ebbe rapporti di amicizia. Primo, in ordine cronologico, dei quattro panorami dedicati dall'artista francese alla città. Molto rara. Etching, 1642, signed on lower plate. Beautiful work, printed on contemporary laid paper, trimmed to platemark, perfectly executed repairs at the upper right center, otherwise in very good condition. Panoramic and uncommon view of the city, from the slopes of Mount Mario. The Basilica in the foreground has been depicted in detail, as is the view of the city, where many buildings can be identified. Silvestre was drawer and engraver; he was born in Nancy in 1621.

Guadagnoli, Filippo.
1642. Folio (220 x 316 mm). (12), 349, (1) pp., final blank f. With the Propaganda Fide's woodcut rectangular Jesus and Apostles device on the title-page, their round Jesus and Apostles device above the colophon, 1 woodcut tailpiece, 2 woodcut decorated initials (2 series), and numerous decorations built up from cast arabesque fleurons. Set in roman, italic and Arabic type with incidental Hebrew. Contemp. limp vellum with ms. spine title. First and only edition of Guadagnoli's Latin grammar of the Arabic language, in a luxurious folio format. In 1632 the Propaganda Fide had begun work on an Arabic Bible that was not to be completed until 1671. Guadagnoli (1596-1656) was one of the correctors for the Bible and in the present grammar, set in the same type, he notes that they have taken special care with their Arabic setting and with the metre to suit them to the desires of native Arabic speakers, though the fact that the text was in Latin and the fact that it must have been an expensive book would have limited the audience: it is not the sort of book that missionaries would give away to common people. Erpenius's 1613 grammar, revised and reprinted several times, was aimed primarily at European scholars. The main text opens with a table of the letters, showing (from left to right!) the stand-alone, initial, medial and final forms, along with the name of each letter and its pronunciation. This gives an overview of the new Arabic Bible type. The texts used as examples include the first printing of two poems taken from manuscripts in the oriental library collected by Pietro della … [Click Below for Full Description]

Grotius, Hugo, philosopher and jurist (1583-1645).
1642. 4to. ½ p. on folded double leaf. With autogr. address and traces of a seal. To the Swabian military leader Christoph Martin von Degenfeld (1599-1653), under whom Grotius's son had served in the Swedish army and to whom Grotius pledges his allegiance: "Nous touts qui sommes icy, moi, les Dames, le filz et la fille remercions vostre Illustrete de la souvenance qu'elle a de nous: et la prions de croire que ce qui a manque au traittement deu a ses qualitez est supple par l'affection qui a este, est, et sera toujours tres sincere [...]". - Degenfeld, who had distinguished himself in Wallenstein's force, later fought for the Swedish side; after the Emperor's victory in 1634, he had to flee to Strasbourg. He became High General of foreign cavalry in French services, but fell out with Cardinal Richelieu in the year of this letter and entered Venetian service as Governor-General of Dalmatia and Albania. This is probably Degenfeld's new "lieu de repos" to which Grotius refers in his present letter. Grotius himself was at the time serving as Swedish ambassador in Paris; his principal work, "De jure belli ac pacis" (1625), laid the foundations for international law. - Letters from Grotius's hand are of the utmost rarity; the present one is the only one established at German auctions since 1950 (Robert Amman collection, Stargardt, 16 Nov. 1961, no. 353).

SGUALDI Vincenzo
Ferroni, 1642. In 16o, pp. (48) + 478 + (49) di indice + (1). Firma all'occhietto. Legatura in p. pg. coeva. Seconda edizione rarissima (ed. orig., Bologna, Tebaldini, 1640), di quest'opera di dottrina politica di Padre Vincenzo Sgualdi, benedettino originario di Piacenza, che, parlando di una repubblica immaginaria come Campanella nella Citta' del sole o Zuccoli nella Repubblica d'Evandria, ma allo stesso tempo recuperando l'interpretazione aristocratica della lezione dell'Utopia di Moro, sosteneva la necessita' di temperare la ragion di stato con l'insegnamento delle scritture per renderla davvero utile all'umanita'. Contro la politica atea ed empia dei tiranni, l'A. esortava a riscoprire la politica bene ordinata che insegna al buon principe come proteggere ed educare i suoi sudditi. L'opera e' dedicata al principe di Venezia e alla citta' fa riferimento Sgualdi quando scrive che, per popolare Venezia, i primi fondatori scelsero tutte persone 'nobili et ingenue' al fine di non perdere l'omogeneita' degli abitanti.

ÒEdition très rareÓ nous dit Chadenat (Nº2936). Sévillan de naissance, Las Casas suit son père, à dix-neuf ans, qui accompagnait Christophe Colomb lors de son deuxième voyage en Amérique. De retour, il entre chez les dominicains et repart en Amérique, à Haïti puis à Cuba o� il est curé. C'est là qu'il a commencé le combat de sa vieÊ: refuser de réduire les Indiens en esclavage, ce qui fit de lui le patron déclaré de ceux-ci. Malgré plusieurs voyages en Espagne et ses liens au plus haut niveau, notamment avec Charles Quint, il n'est jamais arrivé à trouver une solution au problème des mauvais traitements et quelque fois des massacres subis par les Indiens du fait des Espagnols qui commirent dans les Antilles et en Amérique centrale les pires cruautés et des massacres si grands qu'ils furent qualifiés de génocides. Bel exemplaire, très frais.

Decorative initial letter. 4to: A^4. 7-9/16" x 5-7/8" John Taylor was an English poet who styled himself "The Water-Poet". As a literary entrepreneur and showman he was far more prosperous in his heyday than most writers; few watermen or struggling poets were also subsidy men or had to pay ship money. Taylor pursued a successful literary career for over fifty years, demonstrating a remarkable range, facility, and inventiveness. He played a pioneering role in the development of nonsense verse, popular political journalism, and travel writing. His pieces accurately mirror his age, and are of great value to the historian and antiquary. [DNB] This scarce work a humorous, albeit vivid, description of London, capturing the mood of the city of London at the start of the English Civil War; it pays much attention to the citizens, taverns, restuarants and associated debauchry.   "May his wife be catch't in the spirituall act of her next carnall copulation...and let him be buried amongst the Dunghills, as not worthy to come neere the church..where none may finde his grave but dogs to pisse … [Click Below for Full Description]

(Titre avec vignette, Au lecteur), 267 pp. Vélin d'époque, dos lisse titré à l'encre brune. (Manques de parchemin comblés sur les plats aux angles inférieurs. Petits trous de vers touchant le texte à quelques feuillets, traces de mouillures). Nouvelle édition conforme à l'édition de 1618 de ce "traité recherché, mélange curieux d'alchimie, de Kabbale, de mysticisme, et où l'on trouve la manière de fabriquer de l'or". (Caillet III, 11161). Blaise de Vigenere (1523-1596) est un homme aux multiples facettes, surtout connu pour sa carrière diplomatique de trente ans et son travail de cryptographe, mais qui s'intéressa également à l'histoire, à l'astronomie et aux comètes, à l'alchimie, etc. Il entra dans la diplomatie alors qu'il n'avait que dix-sept ans, et il assista en tant que secrétaire à la disète de Worms à 22 ans. Deux ans plus tard, il entra au service du Duc de Nevers. Il se rendit deux fois à Rome, en 1549 et 1566, où il fréquenta des cryptographes et des ouvrages consacrés à cette science. Il publia en 1586 un "Traicté des chiffres ou des secrètes manières d'écrire". Il participa à la publication par l'Angelier de l'ouvrage de Chalcondyle sur l'histoire de la Turquie, et c'est à cet éditeur libraire que l'on doit la publication du présent traité d'alchimie, puisque c'est lui qui hérita des papiers de l'ancien diplomate et qui choisit de faire achever le manuscrit pour en donner une édition.
