        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.

      Bologna: Victor Benatis, 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.

        De recondita abscessuum natura, libri VIII . . . editio secunda multo auctior & correctior ab ipso autore reddita.

      Frankfurt: Caspar Rotelius for Johannes Beyerus, 1643. 2nd Edition. Hardcover. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. 4to (210x160 mm). [28], 468, [46] pp., including additional engraved title and 20 engraved illustrations in text of which all but two are full-page. Internally little browned and with very minor spotting, a few annotations and markings in old hand, two wormholes affecting a few letters to the end. Contemporary plain vellum (remboitage binding, old title in manuscript to spine partially erased). A handsome copy. ----Heirs of Hippocrates 449; Waller 8890; Garrison-Morton 2273 (first edition); NLM/Krivatsy 11055; Norman 1932 (first edition). - The second, enlarged edition (the first contained only 12 engravings) and almost as rare as the original edition printed in Naples 11 years earlier. "The first textbook of surgical pathology. It treats of all kinds of swelling under the 'abscess' and describes neoplasms of the genital organs and sarcomata of bones. Tumours of the breast are classified into four groups, the section devoted to them being one of the most important in the book. This was also the first book to include illustrations of lesions with the text" (Garrison-Morton). Severino's tumor pathology was perhaps the best: He described tumors of the male and female genital organs and gave accounts of massive neoplasms of the bones. He classified breast tumors under four headings and his section on 'mammarum strumae' contains one of the best early discussions of malignancy and benignancy in breast tumors." (Norman). "The book's twenty plates are among the first to depict pathological lesions and to include diseased organs as well as complete views of the individual with the tumor. He includes all manner of tumors and swellings under the term 'abscessus' and describes their surgical treatment in detail. In the chapter on breast neoplasms he delineates four types and differentiates quite clearly between the concept of benign and malignant tumors" (Heirs of Hippocrates 449). Very Good.

      - STCN (6 copies); Tiele, Bibl. 217. First edition of the Dutch translation of a work on travels through Europe, undertaken and written by Gilbert Burnet (1643-1715). Burnet was a Scottish historian, philosopher, and later Bishop of Salisbury. In 1685 Burnet left Great-Brittain to travel Europe, where he visited the Netherlands, France, Germany, Italy and Switzerland. During his stay in the Netherlands, Burnet got exiled from England by King James II, after writing a pamphlet advising the Dutch prince William and his wife Mary not to support James for the repeal of the Test Act. The text is written in the form of letters, starting in Zurich, to Milan, Florence, Rome, and ending in Nijmegen, where he noted everything that "seemed most remarkable" and was unheard of in any other travelogue.Binding rubbed along the extremities, paper cracked at the hinges (hinges still firm) and spine discoloured. Title-page reattached (restored in the gutter), some spots and smudges throughout and a few leaves slightly browned. A good copy.

        Peloponnesus

      Artist: Cantelli da Vignola Giacomo ( - 1695 ) Modena; issued in: Modena; date: 1689 1643 - - technic: Copper print; colorit: colored; condition: Very good; size in cm : 43 x 55 - description: Map of the Peloponnese - Vita of the artist: Giacomo Cantelli da Vignola (1643 - 1695) was an important Italian cartographer and engraver Cantelli was born in Montorsello, near Vignola Italy to a prominent local family. After studying literature at the University of Bologna, Cantelli took a position as secretary to the Marquis Obizzi de Ferrara. Eventually Cantelli relocated to Venice where developed an interest in cartography. He later traveled to Paris in the company of the French ambassador where became acquainted with the French cartographer Guillaume Sanson, as well as his contemporaries Jacques-Andre Duval and Michel-Antoin Baudrand. It was most likely the influence of these innovative French cartographers that inspired Cantelli's careful and meticulous approach, in which he based his cartography not just on earlier maps, but also very much in the French style upon accounts written by travelers and merchants regarding actual travel to foreign lands. Back in Italy, Cantelli took service Count Rinieri Marescotti, with whom he traveled extensively throughout Italy, becoming in the process acquainted with the Italian publisher Giovanni Giacomo de Rossi. It is with Rossi that Cantelli began officially publishing his maps. The earliest maps to bear the Cantelli-Rossi imprint date to 1672 and detail the Holy Land, Persia, and the Ottoman Empire. Around 1680 the duo also began to publish the Mercurio Geografico, a large format atlas illustrating all parts of the world in a splendid Italian baroque detail defined by elaborate finely engraved cartouche work, high quality paper, and bold Roman lettering, and dark rich inks. Some have compared his style go that of Giovanni Antonio Magini, another Italian cartographer of the previous generation. Cantelli da Vignola in fact pioneered the Italian style of fine bold engraving that would eventually be embraced and expanded upon by Vincenzo Coronelli. His work drew the attention of Pope Innocent XI and Reggio Francesco II d'Este, the Duke of Modena, both of whom offered him a position as court geographer. Cantelli chose to work with the Due of Modena, in the service of whom he produced numerous maps and well as two large globes.

"Pour ce faire, il utilise une pédagogie toute cartésienne. Partant des connaissances de base des appareilleurs, il élève par degrés son lecteur vers des savoirs plus compliqués (.). En préconisant des solutions nouvelles, universelles et mathématiques à des problématiques résolues par la tradition, les deux auteurs vont contribuer à modifier le statut des métiers assimilés aux 'arts mécaniques' et élever l’architecture au rang ‘d’art libéral’" (J.-P. Manceau, ‘Architectura. Livres d’architecture’ en ligne, 2005). (Fowler & Baer, 55. Join-Lambert & Préaud, 'A. Bosse, savant graveur', p. 236, n° 228. Millard, n°32).

        A Key into the Language of America: or, An help to the Language of the Natives in that part of America, called New England

      London: Gregory Dexter, 1643. First edition of Williams' first printed book. [16], 197, [3] pp. Collation: A-O^8[C4 signed as B4]. 1 vols. Small 8vo (132 x 82 mm). Full red morocco gilt, by Riviere and Son, a.e.g. A fine copy. First edition of Williams' first printed book. [16], 197, [3] pp. Collation: A-O^8[C4 signed as B4]. 1 vols. Small 8vo (132 x 82 mm). "Nature knows no difference between Europe and Americans in blood, birth, bodies, &c" (p. 53). Williams' early career in the Massachusetts colony is well known, as is his banishment in 1635. Gov. John Winthrop warned him of his impending arrest, and Williams was able to flee to Naragansett Bay, where he became a political leader of the community in Providence, and where his ideas of liberty of conscience and separation of church and state took concrete form. In 1643, Williams returned to England to defend the Naragansett Bay settlements, and wrote A Key into the Language of America while on board ship. The book is the first English-Indian dictionary of note, and the careful observation of speech and customs is testament to Williams' respect for the Indians with whom he had such strong ties. It was published in London, whilst Williams was negotiating the charter for Providence Plantations. A landmark work in American history.

He was easy to get along with, but haughty and murderous on paper. In 1623 he was appointed as the successor of Scaliger at the University of Leiden, a city he was going to hate. This Funus linguae Hellenisticae of 1643 is a stage in the ongoing quarrel between the Leyden professors Daniel Heinsius, once the favourite of Scaliger, and Salmasius. When Heinsius published his Sacrae Exercitationes ad Novum Testamentum in 1639 Salmasius saw an opportunity to take 'revenge on the man he viewed as the leader of the coterie opposing him at Leiden'. (P.R. Sellin, 'Daniel Heinsius and Stuart England', Leiden/Oxford 1968, p. 43) In the preface of his De Modo Usurarum of 1639 he ridiculed Heinsius' description of the koinê as 'lingua Hellenistica'. A flurry of polemics followed. In this quarrel the printer Maire sided with Salmasius in his attempts to destroy Heinsius' integrity. (Sellin p. 47) With his De lingua Hellenistica et origine ac dialectis graecae linguae of 1643 Salmasius mounted a full-scale assault on Heinsius position on the koinê, followed in the same year by a still fiercer attack, De Hellenistica commentarius, controversiam de linguae hellenistica decidens and this anonymously published attack on his colleague, the Funus Linguae Hellenisticae. In it Salmasius contended that the language of the Greek Scriptures was not a separate dialect, but the ordinary Greek of his time. (Sandys, A History of Classical Scholarhip, N.Y., 1964, volume 2, 284/86) Concerning the De Hellenistica commentarius, which was published by Elzevier, and the Funus Linguae Latinae, both written by Salmasius, we quote part of an excellent note of Willems, p. 138, no. 558: 'On appelait Hellénistes les Juifs dispersés parmi les Grecs, surtout ceux qui habitaient Alexandrie et parlaient habituellement le grec. Partant de là, certains savants, à l'exemple de Daniel Heinsius, dans son Aristarchus sacer s'étaient crus autorisés désigner sous le nom d'hellénistique le langage, mêlé d'expressions et de tours de phrases hébraïques, qui était usité parmi ces mêmes Juifs, et dans lequel sont écrits la version des Septante et le Nouveau Testament. Saumaise, qui trouvait l'expression impropre, composa ce gros volume (De Hellenistica commentarius) contre ceux qu'il appelle les Hellénisticaires, et notamment contre Daniel Heinsius, quoique celui-ci ne soit pas nominativement désigné. Il n'en resta pas là; car dès la même année il donna encore le Funus linguae hellenisticae, suivi de l'Ossilegium hellenisticae, Lugd. Bat., J. Maire, 1643. L'auteur a beau jeu pour démontrer que le terme d'hellénistique est inconnu à toute l'antiquité, que cette langue ne constitue pas à proprement parler un dialecte spécial, qu'il n'y a en grec que quatre dialectes, ou cinq si l'on y comprend la langue commune , &c. A cet égard son livre est plein de vues nouvelles et ingénieuses, dont les grammairiens ont fait leur profit. Mais le fait que les livres saints sont écrits en un idiome dont les mots sont grecs et la phrase hébraïque, n'en subsiste pas moins, et Saumaise en convient. (...) Quoi qu'il en soit, le mot qui échauffait si fort la bile de Saumaise a fait fortune, car les récents linguistes Matthiae, Kühner &c n'ont pas fait difficulté de l'admettre') (Provenance: On the front pastedown in pencil: 'J. v.

Meursius, 1643. A greatly expanded edition of the first bibliography of the Jesuit order; the first edition appeared in 1608. Many entries relate to the Jesuit missions in the Orient and the Americas.

A brilliant writer, he wrote a distinguished biography of St. Ignatius Loyola. The Belgian Jesuit historiographer Philippe Alegambe (1592-1652), extended the bibliography to include works published up to 1643 and added several useful indices.

A few dark spots to lower spine, top edge of lower cover has slight loss of vellum, covers just slightly bowed, small 19th century private library label on front pastedown, brief manuscript note on the book on the front endpaper, pale water staining to margins of engraved title page, just entering the image in places, but barely visible, remains of a small wax seal to outer margin of title page, intermittent pale age-browning, heavier in a few places, pale damp stain to margins of L1-L4 and O1-4, small closed tear to upper edge of Xx1, neatly repaired with no loss, occasional slight offsetting from illustrations onto text, occasional dark spot, all easily legible. A very good tight copy. Athanasius Kircher (1601-1680) was a German Jesuit scholar, erudite in many fields, who published around 40 works, most notably in the fields of oriental studies, geology, and medicine. He also invented the first megaphone. This work contains all that was known on the subject of magnetism in Kircher's day. It describes several original observations, for example the influence of volcanic eruptions on the magnetic needle, many experiments, and contains the first use of the term "electro-magnetism". The work does not confine itself to investigations into physical magnetism, the author also examines other sorts of magnetism such as that of the earth and heavenly bodies; the tides; the attraction and repulsion in animals and plants; and the magnetic attraction of music and love. He also investigates the use of magnetism to cure wounds and diseases.

In the exegetic tradition, this attribution has been widely argued. Our preliminary findings lead to the same conclusions. The text composed in French couldn't have been written by Vilanova, who would have composed it in Latin, the language ofthe "clerks", or in Catalan, his first language. Critical tradition shows that the Secrets des femmes is based on three manuscripts. But we have demonstrated that the Mazarine's manuscript is not at the base of this work, but rather of a text entitled Les Termes et secrets des femmes. For the critical edition, which is the objective of our study, there is no doubt that the Arsenal's text is the basic manuscript, while the Vatican's manuscript is the Arsenal's metalanguage."

        Universalis 46 provinciarum Ordinis ff. Minorum Capucinorum per Universam Europa Delineatio

      1643. "Carta storico - geografica tratta dall'atlante ""Chorographica descriptio provinciarum et conventuum F. F. Minorum S. Francisci Capucinorum..."". L'atlante delle province cappuccine era stato iniziato in forma manoscritta dal ministro generale dell'ordine, padre Silvestro da Panicale nel 1632 e doveva servire da sussidio geografico per le visite generali. Alla sua morte il successore Padre Giovanni di Montecaliero, al quale spesso viene erroneamente attribuita la paternità delle carte, incaricò padre Massimino da Guechen di proseguire l'opera. Gli incisori delle lastre furono appunto Massimino da Guechen, Bernardino Burdigalensis e Ludovico Monteregali. La prima edizione fu stampata a Roma nel 1643, la seconda a Torino nel 1649 e quindi nel 1654 ed infine un'altra uscì nel 1712. Per convenzione attribuiamo le mappe al Montecalerio. L'opera mostrava visivamente la diffusione dell'ordine, infatti le diverse carte dell'atlante, che rappresentano nazioni e province, offrono per ognuna di esse la statistica completa dei conventi." Taken from the "Chorographica Descriptio Provinciaru & Conventum F. F. Minorum S. Francisci Capucinorum...". The atlas of the Capuchin provinces was initiated in manuscript form by the minister general of the order, Father Silvestro from Panicale in 1632 and was to serve as an aid for geographic General visits. At his death, the successor Father Giovanni from Montecaliero, which is often mistakenly attributed the authorship of maps, commissioned by his father Massimino Guechen to continue the work. The engravers of the plates were executed by Massimino from Guechen, Bernardino Burdigalensis and Ludovico Monteregali. The first edition was printed in Rome in 1643, the second in Turin in 1649 and then in 1654 and finally released in 1712, another convention attribute maps to Montecalerio. The work showed visually the spread of the order, in fact the different maps of the atlas, which represent nations and provinces, to offer each of them the full statistical convents. Copperplate, very good condition. Rare. Torino Turin 675 495
