Blaeu-- Joan
"Suecia, Dania, et Norvegia, Regna Europae Septentrionalia" Copper engraving published by the house of Blaeu, between 1643-50. Verso: French text. With original hand colouring. Size: 42,7 x 53,1 cm. This fine map depicts the kingdoms of Sweden, Denmark and Norway, whose coats of arms are featured within the title cartouche. The map is attributed to Anders Bure (1571-1646), a Swedish cartographer and mathematician. Bure, also known as Andreas Bureus, compiled a map of the northern part of Sweden and the first separately printed map of the country. Bure was an important figure in the history of Swedish cartography and set up a land surveying office which continued for over 200 years. The Kingdom of Sweden is shown at its largest extent. The map extends to present day Finland and the Baltic states, and is filled with details of towns, political boundaries, rivers, and topography. Price: Euro850,-.

Leo Belgicus - Jacques Marcus, 1643
1643. Leo Belgicus - Lion map of the Seventeen Provinces, "Novus XVII Inferioris Germaniae Provinciarum",copper engraving published in Leiden in 1643 by Jacques Marcus. The map appeared as a title page in Famiano Strada s "De Bello Belgico" [About the War in the Low Countries]. Coloured by a later hand. Size. 15,8 x 9,1 cm. The Dutch lion is a household name. The animal symbolizes the strength and courage of the country. The lion plays an important role in today's football, but the image of the Netherlands as a lion was introduced in difficult times, at the end of the 16th century. From the middle of the Eigthy Years' War against the Spanish, the Netherlands served as a model for a series of lion maps that came on the market. The lion map not only functioned as a useful map, but was often hung on the wall as a statement. An expression of active citizenship, of pride, of self-awareness and often served as a spectacular eyecatcher in a commercial office of a government building. Gallia Belgica was the northern part of Gaul between the Seine and the Rhine in Roman times. As a Latin name, Belgica later became synonymous with the Seventeen Provinces and the Low Countries. Famiano Strada's book on the Eighty Years' War was first published in 1632. It was a commercial success and appeared in different editions until 1700 that were published in Rome, Antwerp, Leuven, Leiden and Amsterdam. In all editions, a lion map is used as one of the title pages. For this the map was re-engraved several times.

Enlarged Second Edition, printed at Cambridge in quarto in 1643 by Roger Daniel. A small quarto volume (about five and a half by seven inches) finely rebound in full leather, with [16] + 504 + [28] pages, and new end papers. There is a little staining to the leather; the binding is very sound. Wonderfully present is the impressive frontispiece: a "Mirror of the World" symbolic engraving. (Note, not present in this copy is "The Frontispiece explained" page, but laid in is a photocopy of that page, having twelve lines of verse, which here are just readable, the quality of the image being significantly less than the pages of the actual book.) The engraved title page has some light browning. The title leaf and prelims also have the same such browning and some staining (lower right corner, primarily on title page). The rest of the text pages in general have light browning. The fore-edges of some pages mostly at the beginning and the end of the book are a bit rough. Please examine the photos closely.

Descartes, René
Apud Ludovicum Elzevirium [Elzevier], Amsterodami [Amsterdam], 1643. First edition. In later red maroquin. Gilt panels, spine, and inner edges. Marbled endpapers. Gilt edges. Woodcut device on the title page. Woodcut initials and tailpieces. [12] 282 p. The scarce first edition of this fundamental text for the history of philosophy and human thought, in which Descartes defends the autonomy of reason and doubt. Ad celeberrimum is Descartes' offensive open letter, published in May 1643, a response to Gisbertus Voetius' two earlier books attacking Descartes (Confraternitas Mariana, 1642; Admiranda Methodus, 1643), and a reaction to the condemnation of Cartesianism by the University of Utrecht, of which Voetius was Rector. In the text, Descartes calls for criticism by reasoning and not by authority, argues for the primacy of education over learning, and for the importance and autonomy of reason (Hoon Woo, 2013). Scarce, WorldCat locates only 6 copies worldwide. Literature: Cottingham, J.; (et al.): The Philosophical Writings of Descartes. (Volume 3: The Correspondence.) Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1985.; Hoon Woo, B.: The Understanding of Gisbertus Voetius and René Descartes on the Relationship of Faith and Reason, and Theology and Philosophy.

MACHIAVELLI, Niccolo
Lvgdvni Batavorvm: Vogel, 1643. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. "The first method for estimating the intelligence of a ruler is to look at the men he has around him." ― Niccolò Machiavelli, The Prince Niccolo Machiavelli is one of the most important figures in 15th- and early 16th-century Renaissance philosophy. His works helped define what has become political science. His most famous work "The Prince" has infamously coined the term 'Machiavellianism' regarding politics and dishonest politicians. It has often been considered the first work of modern philosophy, mostly because it conflicts so strongly with Catholic doctrines concerning politics and ethics at the time. In addition to 'The Prince', this edition includes lesser-known treatises including one from Hubert Languet. Willems notes that this edition is 'very beautiful'.

BORCHT, Willem van der (Guilielmus a CASTRO).
Spieghel der eyghen-kennisse, ... in-gheknoopt Het conterfeytsel des wereldts, ...Brussels, Lambert de Grieck, 1643. 4to. With engraved title-page, engraved portrait of the author (after P. de Backer), both by Antoine van der Does ("AVD"), and 3 nearly full-page engraved illustrations in the text, probably by Van der Does. 18th-century vellum. [16], 271, [1] pp. First edition, in Flemish Dutch, of a didactic satire, mostly in verse, by the Flemish poet and lawyer Willem van der Borcht or Guilelmus a Castro (1621/22-1668) in Brussels, with elegies and epigrams alternating with prose passages. It allegorically presents a mirror of self-knowledge and knowledge of the world, intended to improve the faults of the age and show the foolishness and vanity of the world. The fine plates by Antoine van der Does, showing scenes of rich and frivolous society, are of interest for the costume and morals of the time. The "Toe-ghifte", an integral part of the edition, but with its own title-page on 2D1, represents the world as a capricious woman. The portrait shows Van der Borcht at age 21 with the motto "nosce te ipsum", and a 2-line verse by Ericus Puteanus below. The 3 illustrations show realistic genre scenes, influenced by Rubens. Half the copies listed by the STCV lack the portrait and/or the engraved title-page. One illustration was printed over a crease in the paper, leaving a white line through part of the scene. In very good condition, with a minor water stain in the head margin of the engraved title, just touching its border.

Engraved additional allegorical title, engraved dedication and sub-title, 66 full-page engraved illustrations. Contemporary calf, spine gilt. Condition: FAIR to GOOD. Collated complete. The hinges, spine ends and corners worn. Some light browning. Some inking to front blank. Listing note: First edition, beautifully illustrated by Abraham Bosse (1602-76), who was Desargues's most ardent propagandist. This is an important work in the "French perspective wars" from 1630-80. Desargues was the greatest perspectivist and projective geometer of his generation. Desargues was a civil and military engineer, an architect specialising in staircase design and above all a geometer of extraordinary spatial vision. His intellectual ambition was expressed in two closely-related aspirations: the building of a geometry of position (i.e. non-metrical) based on projective techniques; and the provision of all-embracing methods of geometrical operation for practitioners in various fields. In 1643, Bosse brought out the first of the publications in which he expounded Desar … [Click Below for Full Description]

The fables are illustrated with numerous small anonymous woodcuts that appeared for the first time in 1569 in the fables collected by Cesare Pavesi and became very popular through Landis translations of Aesop, beginning in 1580. They have been attributed to Johann Krieger, a German working in Italy, where he was known as Giovanni Chrieger. Several woodcuts are repeated, especially at the end, for the fables taken from other sources. All fables close with a moral, here called "Sentenza", intended for the instruction and amusement of the youth.With 2 holes in the last few pages, some water stains throughout, and some restorations with now discoloured tape.

[2], "7" [=5], [1 blank] pp. First and only edition of an account of the taking of the Mayflower, a royalist privateer vessel belonging to Captain Polhill, Admiral of Falmouth, by the parliamentarian Captain William Thomas of the 8th Whelp. This happened during the English Civil War, a conflict over the manner of England's government, in which the supporters of King Charles I stood against the supporters of Oliver Cromwell and the Long Parliament.Thomas was ordered to escort some trading vessels to Morlaix in Brittany. When he learned that the prize ship Mayflower, recently taken from Yarmouth, was lying at that harbour, he disguised his vessel as a merchant ship to lure Polhill out. Polhill was fooled, and made haste to capture the reported merchantman "laden with wool and iron". Thomas chased the Mayflower and forced it to run aground. Eventually the captain escaped and remaining crew surrendered and came over to Thomas's side.Robert Riviere (1808-1882) established his famous bindery in Bath and moved it to London in 1840, gaining a reputation as one of E … [Click Below for Full Description]

MYDORGE, Claude.
Examen du livre des recreations mathematiques.Rouen, Charles Osmont, 1643, 8vo. With numerous woodcut illustrations illustrating the problems. Contemporary limp vellum. [1], [1 blank], [5], [1 blank], [7], [1 blank], 280, 63, [1 blank], [1], [1 blank], [2], 67-106, [43], [1 blank] pp. Very rare fourth edition of the commentary of Claude Mydorge (1585-1647) on the Récreations mathématiques by "H. van Etten" (Jean Leurechon). Mydorge corrected the numerous mistakes made by Leurechon in these mathematical diversions and "added several physical experiments... as well as comments that he claimed were intended only for his friends". Several of examples and comments by Mydorge, also appear in the works of his friend Descartes, making it "reasonable to conclude that many of the other mechanical problems discussed by Mydorge in this work were also known to Descartes... and one can easily imagine Descartes as one of the friends participating in the discussions of these problems alluded to in the prefatory remarks" (Hattab).The "diversions" consist of numerous problems for which a mathematical solution is presented, most of them illustrated by a woodcut. For instance, Mydorge (following Leurechon) informs the reader how to make water in a glass boil without fire, "to make a door open from both sides; ... to build a bridge all round the earth which will not fall when its supports are removed; to keep all the water in the world in the air without a single drop falling to earth". The third chapter, on fireworks, contains even more spectacular problems, such as "if all the gunpowder in th … [Click Below for Full Description]

CAVALIERI, Bonaventura Francesco.
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.Bologna, heirs of Victor Benati, 1643. 4to. With engraved frontispiece and 28 geometrical figures on a folding engraved plate. Contemporary vellum, with manuscript title on spine. [16], 71, [1 blank]; [4], 44, [4] ll. (tables) First edition of the celebrated mathematical textbook on trigonometry by Bonaventura Cavalieri (1598-1647), a student of Galileo and professor in mathematics at Bologna. He discovered the method of indivisibles, the first step in infinitesimal analysing, which revolutionized science after Newton and Leibnitz almost simultaneously discovered infinitesimal calculus. Cavalieri was also the first to introduce logarithms in Italy, and noteworthy developments in trigonometry and astronomy as well. The present work on trigonometry includes excellent logarithmic-trigonometric tables, which according to Riccardi greatly assisted the work of the famous astronomer Domenico Cassini. With a manuscript note on the title-page, scratched through. Some minor foxing, and some small wormholes in the last flyleaf and folding plate, hardly affecting the illustration. Binding slightly stained. DSB III, pp. 149-153; Honeyman 646; Riccardi I, 328;

SCHENCKEL, Lambert [and Johannes PAEPP].
Memoria artificialis ... Omnibus litterarum et sapientiae amantibus luci donate, una cum clavicula illam legendi, modum aperiente. Arnoldi Backhusii Lubecensis.Cologne, Wilhelmus Friessus, 1643. 12mo. With engraved title-page. Contemporary vellum. [2], 3-200, [15], [1 blank] pp. Very rare third edition of Johannes Paepp's detailed commentary on Schenkel's Ars memoria, first published in 1617 as Schenckelius detectus, seu memoria artificialis hactenus occultata. The Dutch humanist Lambert Schenkel (1547-1625) was a great master of the art of memory and his teachings were so efficient that he was once accused of heresy by the Catholic Church. "Schenkel had a disciple and imitator, one Johannes Paepp. The works on memory of this Paepp are deserving of rather careful attention because he plays a role which may be vulgarly described as letting the cat out of the bag. He, as he describes it, 'detects Schenkel' or reveals the secret of the occult memory hidden in Schenkel's books. This purpose is stated in the title of his first book .... And he continued the good work of 'detecting Schenkel' in two subsequent publications" (Yates).While the present third edition names "Arnoldi Backhusy" on the title-page, he appears to have done nothing except add the dedication to the physician Johannes Meiboom: the main text largely matches the second edition. With a 1659 owner's inscription and a library stamp. A very good copy, with the fore-edge margin of the title-page folded inward and a minor water stain throughout in the lower margin. Binding very good as well. VD17 14:631160D (2 copies) … [Click Below for Full Description]

FESTIVALS. SPLENDID CEREMONIES. Ricci, Costanzo (d.1670)
Bologna: Nicolò Tebaldini, not before 10 March, 1643. SOLE EDITION. Quarto: Early 20th c. quarter calf and marbled boards, light wear. Contents in excellent condition. Etched frontispiece possibly by Simone Cantarini )1612-1648), a portrait of the dedicatee Cardinal Antonio Barberini, and 8 folding plates attributed to Giovanni Battista Coriolano (1590-1649). A beautifully-illustrated account of the Carnival festivities sponsored by the patrician Taddeo Barberini (1603–1647) in Bologna in February 1643, a publication dedicated to Cardinal Antonio Barberini (1607-1671), brother of Pope Urban VIII. The subject of the lavishly-produced theatrical scenes, which according to Ricci relied on the involvement of all the noble families of the city, was the classical myth of the Judgement of Paris, and the scenes, reproduced by Ricci in verse and prose as well as through the engravings, included dramatic fires, sudden frost, large mythical beasts and heroic feats and triumphs. The soprano castrato Marc'Antonio Pasqualini (probably cardinal Antonio's lover) appeared as Penthesilea.Ricci describes each of the eight pageant floats (carri, macchine), giving a detailed accounting not only of the identities of the mythological characters (and the Italian nobles who perform their roles) and the elements of the floats, but of the kinds and colors of the fabric used for the costumes, and above all, the allegorical significance of each and every element of the spectacle.The first carro to appear is that of Paris (played by Count Ferdinando Bevilacqua of Ferrara) and Helen, who ride upon a … [Click Below for Full Description]

His works helped define what has become political science. His most famous work "The Prince" has infamously coined the term 'Machiavellianism' regarding politics and dishonest politicians. It has often been considered the first work of modern philosophy, mostly because it conflicts so strongly with Catholic doctrines concerning politics and ethics at the time.In addition to 'The Prince', this edition includes lesser-known treatises including one from Hubert Languet.

Stefano Della Bella (Firenze 1610 - Firenze 1664)
1643. Acquaforte misure: mm 117 x 255 Incisore e disegnatore, si dedicò sporadicamente alla pittura. Il padre Francesco, scultore allievo di Giambologna, morì prematuramente ma riuscì ad avviare tutti i suoi figli a mestieri d'arte. Stefano fu il solo ad eccellere, ebbe i primi insegnamenti presso botteghe di dimenticati orefici i quali ebbero tuttavia il pregio di fargli prender dimestichezza con il bulino. Fu sostanzialmente un autodidatta. Le fonti bibliografiche affermano che egli si esercitava a disegnare figure curiosamente partendo dai piedi e a copiare le incisioni di Jacques Callot avendo come unico confronto l'incisore Remigio Cantagallina. Fu notato poi dal pittore Giovan Battista Vanni che lo prese nella sua bottega e gli diede i primi insegnamenti di pittura e del disegno. La vocazione di Della Bella fu sicuramente l'incisione e già le sue prime opere rivelano i temi a lui più cari: scene di vita contemporanea, feste, battaglie e le decorazioni. Lo studio delle incisioni e dei disegno di maestri antichi, la conoscenza e il confronto con i maestri fiorentini e fiamminghi a lui contemporanei allora presenti alla corte medicea furono furono di grande stimolo. Egli è considerato un grafico puro, grazie ai suoi numerosi viaggi tra Roma e Parigi e grazie alla protezione dei Medici maturò un proprio linguaggio grafico, in vita e per tutto il XVIII secolo fu ricercato e collezionato in Francia e in Italia. Questa stampa è la numero 3 della serie Diversi paesaggi, composta da dodici tavole.

Listing note: First edition, beautifully illustrated by Abraham Bosse (1602-76), who was Desargues's most ardent propagandist. This is an important work in the "French perspective wars" from 1630-80. Desargues was the greatest perspectivist and projective geometer of his generation. Desargues was a civil and military engineer, an architect specialising in staircase design and above all a geometer of extraordinary spatial vision. His intellectual ambition was expressed in two closely-related aspirations: the building of a geometry of position (i.e. non-metrical) based on projective techniques; and the provision of all-embracing methods of geometrical operation for practitioners in various fields. In 1643, Bosse brought out the first of the publications in which he expounded Desar … [Click Below for Full Description]

Es fehlt die Tafel mit dem Vogelschauplan von Überlingen.

Albertus Magnus
Amsterdam: Amstelodami : Apud Iodocum Ianssonium. Very good. Hand written black title on spine. Pages very clean. 1643 DE SECRETIS MULIERUM [The Secrets of Women] Albertus Magnus Ivory Vellum Publisher: Amstelodami : Apud Iodocum Ianssonium Size Approx. 12.5 x 7.5 cm 366 Albertus Magnus (before 1200 - November 15, 1280), also known as Saint Albert the Great and Albert of Cologne, was a German Catholic Dominican friar and bishop. Later canonised as a Catholic saint, he was known during his lifetime as Doctor universalis and Doctor expertus and, late in his life, the sobriquet Magnus was appended to his name.[7] Scholars such as James A. Weisheipl and Joachim R. Söder have referred to him as the greatest German philosopher and theologian of the Middle Ages. Secreta Mulierum is a manuscript from the late thirteenth or early fourteenth century frequently attributed to Albertus Magnus, although it is often thought to be more likely written by one of his followers.[1] Originally written in Latin, the title translates to the Secrets of Women. Drawing on Hippocratic, Galenic, and Aristotelian theories on sex and reproduction, this narrative discusses the male scientific views of female nature in the Middle Ages and early modern period from both a medical and philosophical perspective. Chapters: 1. On the Generation of the Embryo 2. On the Formation of the Fetus 3. Concerning the Influence of the Planets 4. On the Generation of Imperfect Animals 5. On the Exit of the Fetus From the Uterus 6. Concerning Monsters in Nature 7. On the Signs of Conception 8. On the Signs of Whether a Mal … [Click Below for Full Description]
