        Trigonometria plana, et sphaerica, linearis, & logarithmica. Hoc est, tam per sinuum, tangentium, & secantium multiplicationem, ac divisionem iuxta veteres: quam per logarithmorum simplicem fere additionem iuxta recentiores; Ad triangulorum dimetiendos angulos, & latera procedens. Cum canone duplici trigonometrico, & chiliade numerorum absolutorum ab 1 usque ad 1000, eorumque logarithmis, ac differentijs. Opusculum universae mathesi utilissimum: omniumque; terrestium, ac caelestium dimensionum promptuarium.

      Victor Benatis, Bologna 1643 - First edition. "Cavalieri, a pupil of Galileo, introduced logarithms into Italy in his Trigonometria and several other works." (Hook & Norman: Origins of Cyberspace, No. 3). "From the standpoint of mathematics alone the Italian writer who influenced the science most in the 17th century was probably Bonaventura Cavalieri, . [he] was one of the first to recognize the great value of logarithms" (Smith: History of Mathematics, p.362). "Logarithms were introduced into mathematics in the work of Napier in 1614. In Italy such valuable auxiliaries to numerical calculation were introduced by Cavalieri, together with noteworthy developments in trigonometry and applications to astronomy. In this connection we might mention ‘Directorium generale uranometricum’ (1632), ., ‘Nuova pratica astrologica’ (1639), and ‘Trigonometria plana, et sphaerica, linearis et logarithmica’ (1643). The ‘Directorium’, the ‘Pratica’, and the ‘Trigonometria’ contain, moreover, excellent logarithmictrig-onometric tables." (DSB III, p.152). The final 104 pages of the Trigonometria contain Cavalieri’s tables; "the main table in this work the logarithms of numbers up to 1000 are exhibited to seven decimals with characteristic and interscript first differences." (Henderson: Bibliotheca Tabularum Mathematicarum, no. 37). The Trigonometria also contains a preliminary defense by Cavalieri of his method of indivisibles; "Throughout the last three of the four volumes of his ‘Centrobaryca’ (1635-1641) [Paul] Guldin had commented upon Cavalieri’s use of indivisibles and had particularly criticized it very outspokenly in Chapter 5 of the fourth volume. Shortly before Guldin’s death [in 1643] Cavalieri published a defense of his method in the section ‘Admonitio circa auctorem centrobaryacae’ of his Trigonometria (1643, pp. 6-8)". (Kirsti Andersen: Cavalieri’s Method of Indivisibles, Archive for History of Exact Sciences, vol. 31, p.295). Cavalieri’s full defense of his method appeared in his ‘Exercitationes Geometricae’ 1647. The Erwin Tomasch Library C-52; Riccardi I/1 328; Cinti 111. 4to (225 x 168 mm), engraved frontispiece pp. 16, 71, (1); (104) and 1 engraved folding plate, contemporary limp vellum, inner hinges a little loose, front pastedown and free end paper with a little worming (hardly effecting the inner margin of the frontispiece), in all avery good and clean copy in its original state.

        MUNDUS ALTER ET IDEM.

      - MVNDVS ALTER ET IDEM. Sive Terra Australis antehac semper incognita, longis itineribus peregrini Academici nuperrimè lustrata. Authore MERCVRIO BRITANNICO. Accessit propter assinitatem materiae THOMAE CAMPANELLAE, CIVITAS SOLIS. ET NOVA ATLANTIS. FRANC. BACONIS, Bar. de Verulamio. VLTRAIECTI, Apud Joannem à Waesberge Anno cIc Ic c XLIII [1643]. In 12º (de 7,5x12,5) com [16], 213, [19] págs. Encadernação da época inteira de pergaminho rígido. Ilustrado com 4 mapas desdobráveis e 1 levantamento epigráfico impresso em chapa (pag. 64-65) em extratexto. Exemplar com ex-libris oleográficos desvanecidos no verso da folha de rosto. Gravuras e mapas presentes no exemplar seguem a seguinte colação: Frontispício com gravura de um banquete colocado no anterrosto. Terra Sancta, Lavernia entre as págs. 32-33 Pamphagonia entre as págs. 34-35 Reprodução epigrafia entre as págs. 64-65 Frugiona entre as págs. 98-99 Moroniae entre as págs. 118-119 Mare Pacifico del Sur entre as págs. 192-193. Este trabalho é a primeira utopia sobre a Austrália, e a obra de Campanellas a Cidade do Sol e a de Bacon Nova Atlântida foram duas das mais reimpressas obras do século XVII sobre a utopia de uma república ideal (muitas vezes em conjunto com a Utopia de More e com a Oceana de Harrington). Este trabalho publicado anonimamente é provavelmente a primeira «distopia» (segundo McMullan, vide Politics of Unease, p. 236), e teve uma importante influência na obra As Viagens de Gulliver, de Swift. Mundus Alter et Idem foi atribuída a Hall, em 1674. No texto um viajante fictício «Mercurius Britannicus» visita quatro nações com nomes latinescos nomeadamente: Crapulia, Viraginia, Moronia, e Lavernia (respectivamente, a gula, a luxúria, a loucura e o engano). Contém um índice dos vários nomes de lugares dentro de cada região para enfatizar a piada. Os mapas ilustram uma Austrália imaginária e um continente Antártico, bem como muitos «não-lugares» nas Américas, daí a inclusão da obra nas bibliografias de Church e de Sabin. [EN] In 12 (7,5x12,5). [16], 213 [19] pp. Binding: Contemporary hard parchment. Illustrated with 4 maps and leaflets and 1 epigraphic survey printed plate (p. 64-65) "hors text". Copy with faded ex-libris stamps on the back of the title page. The engravings and maps present in the book are in the following order: Frontispiece with portrait of a banquet. Terra Sancta, Lavernia between pp. 32-33 Pamphagonia between pp. 34-35 Epigraphic survey between pp. 64-65 Frugiona between pp. 98-99 Moroniae between pp. 118-119 Mare Pacifico del Sur between pp. 192-193. Joseph Hall (1574-1656) was an English bishop, satirist and moralist. His contemporaries knew him as a devotional writer, and a high-profile controversialist of the early 1640s. This work is the earliest utopia set in Australia, and Campanellas’ City of the Sun and Bacon’s New Atlantis were two of the most reprinted (often together with Mores Utopia and Harrington's Oceana) of all the 17th century works on the ideal republic. This anonymously published work is probably the first English «dystopia» (McMullan, ‘Politics of Unease’, p. 236) as well as an important influence on Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels’. It seems to have been only formally attributed to Hall in 1674, although Milton had attacked the work, and Hall himself, at the time, for being devoid of the moral message necessary to satire. In the text, the fictional traveler ‘Mercurius Britannicus’ visits four nations with names of latin origin, including: Crapulia, Viraginia, Moronihah, and Lavernia (respectively, gluttony, lust, madness and deception). The index glosses the various placenames within each region to emphasize the joke. The maps illustrate the imaginary Australis and Antarctic continent, and with non-places on the Americas as well (hence its inclusion in Church and Sabin). Sabin 29819; Gibson (Francis Bacon) 213.

Binding somewhat worn, but sound, tight, and unrestored. A bit of soiling to title-page of "Danicorum Monumentorum" and lighter brownspotting thoughout. All in all a very nice copy og both works. "Danicorum Moumentorum" with old/contemporary owner's signatures to title-page and with contemporary handwritten additions to the errata-list - 1 f. in all. With the book plate of Hans de Hofman to inside of front board. Engraved title-page (by Simon de Pas). (24), 526, (18) pp. + large folded woodcut plate (the Golden Horn). Large woodcuts in the text + (12), 36 pp. Captions and some runic letters printed in red. + (10), 53, (5) pp. + large folded woodcut plate of the horn. ¶ Scarce first editions of all three works - both of Worm's famous masterpieces on runes and Winstrup's highly important work on the Golden Horn - 1) Worm's "Danicorum Monumentorum", Worm's runic magnum opus, which not only constitutes the first written study of runestones and the first scientific analysis of them, but also one of the only surviving sources for depictions of numerous runestones and inscriptions from Denmark, many of which are now lost; 2) Worm's "Regum Daniae", which contains the highly important reproduction of The Law of Scania in runes as well as in Latin translation with commentaries; and 3) Winstrup's "Cornicen Danicus", which constitutes one of the earliest works on the first Golden Horn, an important, early critical investigation of it, reproducing Worm's seminal depiction of the horn, with the depiction also of the knob that the King had made in order to use it as a drinking horn, and expressing the hopelessness of ever finding the true meaning of the horn. An interesting and original idea is set forth, namely that the Horn has to do with the Swedish war of 1643. The "Danicorum Monumentorum, with its numerous woodcut renderings of monuments with rune-inscriptions - including the world-famous folded plate of the Golden Horn, which had been found only five year previously, and which is now lost - is arguably the most significant work on runes ever written, founding the study of runes and runic monuments. Most of the woodcuts were done after drawings by the Norwegian student Jonas Skonvig; they are now of monumental importance to the study of runes and runic monuments, not only because they appeared here for the first time in print, but also because many of the monuments are now lost and these illustrations are the only surviving remains that we have. Ole Worm (Olaus Wormius) (1588-1655) was a famous Danish polymath, who was widely travelled and who had studied at a range of different European universities. Like many of the great intellectuals of the Early Modern era, Worm's primary occupation was as a physician, for which he gained wide renown. He later became court doctor to King Christian IV of Denmark. In 1621, Worm had become professor of physics, but already the year before, in 1620, had he begun the famous collection that would become one of the greatest cabinets of curiosites in Europe (and one of the first museums) and which would earn him the position as the first great systematic collector (within natural history) in Scandinavia. It was his then newly begun collection that enabled him, as professor of physics, to introduce demonstrative subject teaching at the university, as something completely new. He continued building and adding to his magnificent collection, now known as "Museum Wormianum", throughout the rest of his life. Worm's fascination for antiquarian subjects not only resulted in his famous "Museum Wormianum", but also in a deep fascination with early Scandinavian and runic literature and the history and meaning of runestones. These monuments found throughout Scandinavia, were carved with runic inscriptions and set in place from about the fourth to the twelfth centuries. In most cases, they are burial headstones, presumably for heroes and warriors.Worm published works on the runic calendar, translations of runic texts and explications of folklore associated with the runestone histories. By far his most extensive and important work was the "Danicorum Monumentorum", which was the first serious attempt at scientifically analyzing and recording all 144 then known runestone sites in Denmark. With the King's blessing and support, Worm contacted bishops all over the country who were instructed to provide details and drawings of the barrows, stone circles and carved inscriptions in their regions.Many of the monuments recorded in this splendid work have since disappeared. Some of them appeared in the fire of Copenhagen, to which they were brought at the request of Worm himself. The book thus contains highly valuable data about missing sites in Scandinavian archaeology and is an invaluable source to anyone studying runes and runic monuments. Included in the work are Worm's three earlier, small treatises on runes, here collected for the first time and set into a systematic an scientific context, among them his 1641 treatise on the Golden Horn. For Danes, the Golden Horns, discovered on 1639 and 1734 respectively, with their amazing, complicated, and tragic story, constitute the Scandinavian equivalent to the Egyptian pyramids and have been the object of the same kind of fascination here in the North, causing a wealth of fantastical interpretations, both historical, literary, mystical, linguistic, and artistic. The two golden horns constitute the greatest National treasure that we have. They are both from abound 400 AD and are thought to have been a pair. A span of almost 100 years elapsed between the finding of the first horn and the finding of the second. Both findings are now a fundamental part of Danish heritage. In 1802 the horns were stolen, and the story of this theft constitutes the greatest Danish detective story of all times. The thief was eventually caught, but it turned out that he had melted both of the horns and used the gold for other purposes.Before the horns were stolen, a copy of the horns was made and shipped to the King of Italy, but the cast which was used to make this copy was destroyed, before news had reached the kingdom of Denmark that the copies made from the cast were lost on their way to Italy, in a shipwreck.The original works contained in the present compilation constitute not only the earliest descriptions of the seminal first horn, but also the most important sources that we now have to the knowledge of the horn. It is on the basis of the descriptions and depictions in the present works that the later copies of the first horn were made. Both horns were found in Gallehus near Møgeltønder, the first in 1639, by Kirsten Svendsdatter, the second in 1734, by Jerk (Erik) Lassen.Kirsten Svendsdatter made her discovery on a small path near her house, initially thinking that she had stumbled upon a root. When she returned to the same place the following week, she dug up the alleged root with a stick, and took it for an old hunting horn. She brought it back home and began polishing it. During the polishing of it, a small piece broke off, which she brought to a goldsmith in Tønder. It turned out that the horn was made of pure gold, and rumors of Kirsten's find quickly spread. The horn was eventually brought to the King, Christian IV, and Kirsten was given a reward corresponding to the gold value of the horn. The king gave the horn to his son, who had a lid made for it so that he could use it as a drinking horn. An excavation of the site where the horn was found was begun immediately after, but nothing more was found - that is until 95 years later when Jerk Larsen was digging clay on his grounds - merely 25 paces from where Kirsten had found the first horn. The year was now 1734. The horn that Larsen found was a bit smaller in size and was lacking the tip, but it still weighed 3,666 kg. As opposed to the first horn, this second horn had a runic inscription. After the horn had been authenticated, it was sent to King Christian VI, where it was placed in a glass case in the royal art chamber, together with the first horn. Before being placed here, a copy was made of both horns. These copies were lost in a ship wreck, however, and the casts had already been destroyed. In the fatal year of 1802, the gold smith and counterfeiter Niels Heldenreich broke in to the royal art chamber and stole the horns. By the time the culprit was discovered, the horns were irrevocably lost - Heldenreich had melted them and used the gold to make other things, such as jewellery. A pair of ear rings that are still preserved are thought to have been made with gold from the horns, but this is all that we have left of the original horns. New horns were produced on the basis of the descriptions and engraved illustrations that were made after the finding of the horns. And thus, the plate used in the present works constitute our main source of knowledge of the appearance of the first horn. "The longest of the golden horns was found in 1639 and described by Ole Worm in the book 'De Aureo Cornu', 1641 (a treatise which is also included in his greater "Danicorum Monumentorum"). The German professor at Soro Academy Hendrich Ernst, disagreed with Worm's interpretation of the horn. Ernst believed that the horn came from Svantevits temple on Rügen, while Worm interpreted it as a war trumpet from the time of Frode Fredegods, decorated with pictures, calling for virtue and good morals. Worm immediately sent his book to Prince Christian and the scholars at home and abroad. You can see in his letters, that not only did the horn make an impression, but also the letter and the interpretation. In that same year there were such lively discussions on the horn among the scholars of Königsberg, now Kaliningrad!In 1643 Worm reiterated the description of the golden horn in his great work on Danish runic inscriptions, 'Monumenta Danica'. In 1644, his descriptions of the horn reached for scholars and libraries in Schleswig, Königsberg, London, Rome, Venice and Padua. Several learned men wrote poems for him, and the golden horn was mentioned in an Italian manus. Map Cartoonist Johannes Meyer placed the finds on several of his map of South Jutland. When the Swedish commander Torstensson attacked Jutland in 1643, Peter Winstrup wrote a long poem in Latin addressed to the bishop of Scania (which at that time still belonged to Denmark), the poem was called 'Cornicen Danicus'. It was immediately translated into Danish, entitled 'The Danish Horn Blower'. He interpreted the horn and its images as an warning of war, and his interpretations were very hostile to the Swedish. Paul Egard and Enevold Nielssen Randulf were among some of the other scholars who interpreted the Golden Horn In the 1640s. They were both deans in Holstein, and had a more Christian interpretation of the horn.All these works were illustrated with copies of Worms depictions of the horn. The Golden Horn remained known throughout the 1600s, both in terms of interpretations of the horn and designs. The found of the short golden horn in 1734 renewed the interest of the meaning of the horns." (National Museum of Denmark). Thesuarus: 727; 733; 716.

        L'oceano imboschito, in cui pati funesto naufraggio Emanuel Sosa, cavalier portoghese. Storia descrita dal Dottore Don Giacinto Marmosa da Somera Accademico eruditissimo, scientifico, & universale [actuall by Giacomo Maria da S. Remo]

      1643 - First edition. 16mo. [4], 212p. [4], half-title,first leaf and last 2 leaves blank (the second of these pasted down), contemporary vellum, lettered in ink on spine, library stamps to half-title, title-page and final leaf, very slight and occasional worming in margins in quire D, unaffecting text. Pavia, [s.n.] The bookwas reprinted in Milan in 1672, and then in Parma in 1675, 1692, 1693, and 1694. The author there is given as the Minorite friar Giacomo Maria da San Remo who seems to be disguising himself, as was common in Italian academies, under a pseudonym 'Giacinto Marmosa da somera'. His somewhat purple dedication to his fellow academicians -?alli signori accademici eruditissimi, scientifici, & universali?- conjures up a whole band of musical instruments whose music could not soften the bitterness encountered by the poor Don Manuel. The work is apparently the account of a shipwreck. It is a fictional creation, although it has a basis in fact as Manuel de Sousa Sepulveda existed. He was born about 1505, was originally destined for the church, but departed for India, and had a distinguished military career there. In June1552 he and his family aboard the galleon Sao Joao, sailing from Calcutta, were shipwrecked of the coast of Natal near the Cape of Good Hope. They were captured by native inhabitants, and came to an unfortunate end. The story captured the popular imagination. A brief account of the affair attributed by some to Alvaro Fernandes, a survivor, was first published in Portuguese in [1554]Historia da mui notavel perda do galeao grande de S. Joao.Of this there seem to have been more than one edition including one from 1625. This text included as the first short item in volume I of Bernardo Gomes de Brito's compilation of Portuguese shipwrecks,História trágico-marítima, em que se escrevem chronologicamente os naufragios que tiveram as naus de Portugal, depois que se poz em exercício a Navegação da índia.In 1985 Manuel Simoens edited it with other similar texts. The story however circulated widely. It was known to Camoens, who refers to it (with no names, which shews how well known it was) in Os Lusiadas (Book V). The earliest known version of the original account appeared in the Jesuits Maffei?s Historiarum indicarum libri XVI (Florence, 1588). A year later in 1589 Francesco Serdonati translated the whole into Italian as Le istorie delle Indie orientali. Both were published by the Giunti firm. In 1603 a French version by Francois Arnault de La Borie was published at Lyon, and also in 1603 Fray Antonio de San Ramon, in his Historia general de la Yndia oriental gave the story in substantially the same form as in Maffei's version, but in an enlarged and amplified translation. Jeronimo Corte Real's posthumous epic poem in 17 cantos, Naufragio e lastimoso sucesso da perdiqam de Manoel was published in 1602, and later translated into Spanish. The story entered the theatre also and both Tirso de Molina and Lope de Vega wrote plays on the subject (see !!!). The story clearly repaid retelling, and as here, embellishment. It is surprising that Coleridge, who raided so much travel literature, does not use it. The present work (a densely printed text; 32 lines to a full page in small type) contains eleven chapters (or ?appendici?), beginning with an elaborate account of the armada which set out from Calcutta, and ending with an account of the cavaliere?s funeral followed by his widow?s funeral address. It is in fact a paean to the joys of conjugal devotion. There is then a twelfth chapter with verses in various genres, including acrostichs of his and her name, all in Italian, except for one set of Latin verses in which the Manuel laments his own and his wife?s misfortunes. It is clear that the work is in no way modelled on the story as told. It is all, of course, purely imaginary. It is a novel, which, in part at least, reminds one of the type of tale of adventures, misfortunes and separation (but not the joyful reunion)which occ

Prynne was a contentious and erudite Puritan attorney and legal antiquarian who wrote several books and pamphlets about legal history, religion and politics. He had an unrivalled ability to antagonize others. His personality and choice of targets eventually led to his disbarment, imprisonment, and mutilation (loss of ears) by the Star Chamber. After the Restoration Prynne was appointed Royal Archivist in the Tower of London. A product of his antiquarian interests, the Opening of the Great Seale is a discussion of the role and significance of the great seal affixed to state documents.

The anonymous author recounts numbers of French and Spanish troops and the course of their battles in the Aran Valley (Val d'Aran) over the course of several weeks.From the Aran Valley, in the Pyrenees, the Garonne River flows into France. It is in the province of Llérida (or Lleida) in Catalonia, but the name derives from Basque.Aside from his struggles with Portugal, which had declared its independence in 1640, Philip IV of Spain had to deal with a rebellion in Catalonia, which, having been deprived of its ancient rights and privileges, had requested Louis XIII's protection in 1640. The Thirty Years? War (1618-1648), originally a religious conflict between Catholics and Protestants within the Holy Roman Empire, had by this time widened into a battle between the Bourbons and Habsburgs: hence the French at this time supported both the Catalans and the Portuguese. The War significantly affected the outcome of the Portuguese struggle for independence (the Restauração), since it prevented the King of Spain from directing his full military might against Portugal.*** Arouca R208.
