        Fragmenta Aurea. A Collection of all the Incomparable Peeces, Written

      , 1646. 1646. SUCKLING, SIR JOHN. Fragmenta Aurea. A Collection of all the Incomparable Peeces, Written by Sir John Suckling ... Printed by his owne Copies. London: For Humphrey Moseley, 1646. [6], 119, [7], 82, 64, [4], 52 p. Engraved port. by William Marshall. Contemporary calf, gilt fillet and cornerpieces, red morocco spine label. Portrait and first two leaves with two very tiny holes at the gutter, worm trail in lower margin of first three gatherings, else a very nice copy in a lovely contemporary binding. Bookplate of C. Pearl Chamberlain and book label of Abel Berland. Fine red morocco pull-off case. Accompanied by an A.L.S. of John Suckling (1569- 1627), father of the poet, Goodfathers, 29 July 1625, to an unnamed recipient, seeking information on his election as a burgess in Yarmouth. First edition, first state of the title, with "FRAGMENTA AVREA" in upper case, a period after "Churchyard" in the imprint, and the rule under the date; A3v:16 reads "allowred." Second state of the frontispiece, re- incised with heavier lines around the leaves of the garland and the bulge in the left sleeve. According the Beaurline and Clayton, the plate was most certainly re-incised in the course of printing and is fairly evenly distributed with the various states of the title. Suckling is perhaps best remembered for the fine lyrics in his dramas, including the famous line "Why so pale and wan, fond lover?" (in Aglaura). D'Avenant called Suckling the greatest gallant and gamester of his day. He is also remembered as the inventor of the game of cribbage. L. A. Beaurline and T. Clayton, "Notes on Early Editions of Fragmenta Aurea," Studies in Bibliography 23 (1970), pp. 165-170; Greg III, 1130; Hayward 84; Pforzheimer 996; Wing S-6126.

        Observationes defectus lunaris Grenovici habit

      - for Flamsteed's life: DSB V, pp. 22-26. Three astronomical articles (2 in the form of letters) by England's first Royal Astronomer, John Flamsteed (1646-1719) at the Greenwich Observatory from its establishment in 1675, published in the Philosophical Transactions of the British Royal Society in the years 1683 and 1685. The first article gives observations of a 1682 lunar eclipse by Flamsteed himself, Edmund Halley and a certain Haynes. The second gives Flamsteed's calculations of the eclipses of Jupiter's four moons for the coming year 1686, intended in part as an aid to the determination of longitude. The third gives an engraved dial with four scales around its perimeter, with Flamsteed's description of its use to calculate the positions of Jupiter's moons. Flamsteed's magnum opus, his great star catalogue and charts, appeared posthumously in 1725 and 1729, so his most important publications during his own lifetime were a single book in 1680 and a dozen short astronomical articles in the years 1672 to 1686, three of them present here. The articles and plate have been disbound, but they are otherwise in very good condition, with only some minor spots in the text and a couple tears (one repaired). Three of Flamsteed's rare non-posthumous astronomical publications, with an engraved plate of his calculating dial.

        Pseudodoxia Epidemica: Or, Enquiries into very many received tenents, and commonly presumed truths.

      London: Printed by T.H. For Edward Dod, and are to be sold in Ivie Lane, 1646. FIRST EDITION. Large octavo, pp. 386. In contemporary full speckled calf, gilt decoration to spine, marbled end papers. Bookplate with Latin motto attached to pastedown. Minute early, professional, near-invisible repairs to the "Envoi". Boards scuffed, hinges starting, spine and corners repaired, foxing to some leaves, heavier in places. A respectable copy. Sir Thomas Browne delighted in the discussion of fables, and painstakingly applied himself to the discovery of the truth behind them, and the more marvellous the story, the more he enjoyed the investigation of it. His fame for encyclopedic knowledge was firmly established during his lifetime, and his assistance was frequently sought on scientific or antiquarian inquiries. He was one of few men of his era to have read Dante's 'Inferno,' which was also a source of inspiration to him. Although he professed his anxiety to dispel popular superstitions, he believed in astrology, alchemy, witchcraft, and magic, and the Ptolemaic system of astronomy. An unfortunate practical illustration of his credulity occured in 1664, when Amy Duny and Rose Cullender were being tried as witches. Browne declared 'that the fits were natural, but heightened by the devils cooperating with the malice of the witches, at whose instance he did the villainies,' and he cited some recent similar cases in Denmark. It has been suggested that this comment directly led to a conviction of witchcraft for both women. Keynes [73].

        De Organica Conicarum Sectionum in Plano Descriptione, Tractatus. Geometris, Opticis; Praesertim verò Gnomonicis & Mechanicis Utilis. Cui subnexa est Appendix, de cubicarum Aequationum resolutione.

      First edition Leiden: Elzevir, 1646. A very fine copy of this beautiful book concerned with the so-called organic description (or generation) of curves. This was an important topic, since in order to determine the point of intersection of curves in the construction of geometrical solutions, it was natural to think of the curves as generated by a continuous motion driven by some instrument. It is the continuity of the motion generating the curves that guarantees a point of intersection can be located exactly. Descartes had devised several mechanisms for generating curves. In De Organica, which Newton read, van Schooten had presented several mechanisms for generating conic sections. This research field was connected with practical applications, for instance, lens grinding and sundial design, but it was also sanctioned by classical tradition and motivated the highly abstract needs underlined by Descartes. Newton was able to devise a mechanism for generating conics and to extend it to higher-order curves. In this work Schooten gave the now standard method of drawing an ellipse with the piece of string whose ends are attached to two pegs, and it is the first printed work that contains a mechanical description of the ellipsis, parabola and hyperbola without considering them as conics. The book is among the 24 highlights of the Elsevier Heritage Collection. *Honeyman 2807; Macclesfield 873; Willems 607. 4to (208 x 157 mm), contemporary vellum, pp. [16], 117 [3:blank].

Edition bilingue latin et italien des célèbres prophéties de Joachim de Flore (Gioacchino da Fiore), illustrée de gravures sur bois. Les illustrations emblématiques servent d'explication aux diverses prophéties sur les Papes, parmi lesquels la 19e "Confusio et error viciabitur" semble faire allusion à la Révolution française, et la dernière "Oraculo Turchesco" prédisant la chute de l'Empire Ottoman. Rappelons que les prophéties de ce moine cistercien illuminé enflammèrent l'Italie du XIIe siècle, et furent condamnées au Concile de Latran en 1215. On y trouve aussi une biographie de l'abbé Joachim par Gabriel Barrio, et un commentaire des prophéties par Pascal Regiselmo. Joachim de Flore divise l'histoire de l'humanité en trois périodes: la première, celle du Père, correspond à l'Ancien Testament. La seconde, correspond à la venue du Christ, et au Nouveau Testament. La troisième et dernière, mettant fin à la transformation de l'Eglise, avec le règne de l'Esprit Saint et l'avènement d'une ère d'harmonie spirituelle. ¶ Caillet n°5541 (autres éditions) - Bibliotheca Magica Casantense 533 (autres éditions) - Dorbon n°2278 à 2281 (autres éditions) - Guaïta n°422 (édit. de 1639)

        Map of New Guinea.

      Amsterdam: Jansson, 1646. Engraved map, 185 x 435 mm.; with central fold, in fine condition and mounted. Important early map of the Pacific with insets of the Le Maire Strait and New Guinea from Commelin's compendium of Dutch voyages, Begin Ende Voortgangh. This map comes from the chapter which describes Spilbergen's second voyage to the Moluccas via the Strait of Magellan and the narrative of Le Maire and Schouten's voyage of 1615-1617 to the Australian regions. The momentous Pacific crossing of Le Maire and Schouten was 'the last expedition of the seventeenth century to search for Terra Australis from the east... ' (Schilder).The larger inset shows Le Maire's discoveries along the northern coast of New Guinea, including the detailed voyage track. Of particular interest is the westernmost island depicted, which clearly shows Gilolo. Gilolo or Jailolo, which is situated on Halmahera - the largest island of the Moluccas - was the original home of Giolo, Dampier's "Painted Prince". Giolo and his mother had been captured and sold as slaves at Mindanao to Moody, an English trader. Dampier purchased a half-interest in Giolo, during his trading voyage of 1690 (described in New Voyage round the World, 1697) and returned with him to London.

        Planisphere Cheleste Septentrional par Mons Sr. De la Hire.

      Artist: Fer de Nicolas ( - 1720 ) Paris; issued in: Paris; date: 1720 1646 - - technic: Copper print; colorit: original colored; condition: Some restoration at the center; size in cm : 46 x 46 - description: La Hire's constellation figures are influenced by Johann Bayer's great star atlas (Uranometria, 1603) although La Hire did not use Bayer's system of number stars based upon their brightness. In his treatise on Celestial maps, Warner identifies Sir Edmund Halley as one of the prime sources for the text surrounding the Constellations. - Vita of the artist: "Nicolas de Fer ( 1646 - 1720 in Paris) was a French cartographer and geographer. He also was an engraver and publisher. De Fer was the youngest of three sons of Antoine de Fer, who was also a cartographer. When he was 12, he became the apprentice of Parisian engraver Louis Spirinx, and made his first map, of the Canal du Midi, at the age of 23. After the death of his father in June 1673, de Fer was so successful at improving the firm that, in 1690, he became the official geographer to Louis, Dauphin of France. With support from the Spanish and French Royal Families, de Fer also became official geographer for Philip V and Louis XIV, the kings of Spain and France, respectively. Because of this, his maps became Bourbon propaganda, endorsing French King Louis XIV.His business flourished, producing town plans, atlases, wall maps, and more than 600 sheet maps.He made maps of places in Europe and North America, including New Spain, places fortified by Vauban, the Low Countries, and the War of the Spanish Succession. In 1698, de Fer published a map of North America, which included a depiction of beavers building dams near Niagara Falls. Seventeen years later, Herman Moll published an identical map as his own, known as the "Beaver map".De Fer became the official geographer for His Catholic Majesty in 1720.Two of his sons-in-law, Guillaume Danet and Jaques-François Bénard, continued the company after de Fer's death on 25 October of that year until around 1760."

      25,5 x 31,5 cm. 20 unnum. Blatt mit 19 ganzs. farbigen Illustrationen. Farbig illustr. OHlwd. Brüggemann II,767 Sebaß I,1646. - Seltene, erste Ausgabe. - "Der Verfasser Björn Graf von Rosen, geb. 25.10.1905 in Rockelstad, Helgesta (Schweden), ist in Schweden als Schriftsteller, Lyriker und Illustrator hervorgetreten. In diesem Bilderbuch erzählt er in gereimten Versen die Geschichte des kleinen Mädchens Adeli-Sofi, das trotz Verbots der Mutter zum Strand geht und dort vom Wassermann in die Tiefe gezogen wird, wo er das Mädchen willkommen heißt mit dem Wunsch, daß sie gute Freunde werden möchten. Adeli-Sofi jedoch widersetzt sich energisch und erreicht durch wütendes Schreien, daß der Wassermann sie zum Strand zurückbringt. Die Moral am Schluß, kursiv gesetzt, lautet: Wenn man nur genügend schreien kann, setzt man sich durch - auch bei dem Wassermann. Das Buch wurde wegen der drastisch-expressiven Bilder sofort nach seinem Erscheinen 1944 als "entartet" verboten und beschlagnahmt. Dies geht aus einer Notiz in einer 1987 veranstalteten, geringfügig veränderten Neuausgabe hervor, die im Verlag Pro Juventute (Zürich) erschienen ist, der die Tradition der Atlantis-Kinderbücher des inzwischen erloschenen Verlages fortsetzt" (Brüggemann). - Einband minimal angestaubt und am unteren Rand etwas stockfleckig.

      Pergamentbogen mit handschriftl. Text in deutscher Schreibschrift. Von Friedrich I. gesiegelt und unterschrieben. Herzog Friedrich I. von Sachsen-Gotha-Altenburg (geb. 15. Juli 1646 in Gotha gest. 2. August 1691 in Friedrichswerth)aus der Linie der ernestinischen Wettiner. Sohn des Herzogs Ernst der Fromme. Inhalt: Regelung der Aufteilung der Regentschaften und gemeinsamen Regierungsorganisation mit seinen sechs jüngeren Brüdern. (vgl. Wikipedia: Nach dem Tod seines Vaters im Jahr 1675 übernahm Friedrich nach Maßgabe des väterlichen Testaments die Nachfolge. Er hatte aber seine sechs jüngeren Brüder an der Regierung zu beteiligen, denn sein Vater wünschte keine Teilung des Landes, hatte sich aber zur Einführung der Primogenitur nicht entschließen können, weil diese faktische Enteignung der nachgeborenen Söhne seinem Verständnis von familiärem Verhalten widersprach. So kam es zunächst zu einer gemeinsamen Hofhaltung aller sieben Brüder auf Schloss Friedenstein, die allerdings nur bis 1676 bestand. Danach begannen Verhandlungen zur Teilung des väterlichen Erbes.) Mit anhängendem rotem Lacksiegel (insgesamt unbeschädigt, nur am äußersten Rand leichter Abrieb) in gedrechselter Holzkapsel (Deckel fehlt). Außendurchmesser 12,5 cm, Innendurchmesser 10 cm. In den vier Ecken kleine, stecknadelgroße Löcher, vermutl. vormals zur Befestigung mit Nadeln. Keine weiteren Beschädigungen, Pergament mehrfach gefaltet. Altersgemäß auf der Rückseite etwas angestaubt. Schriftseite und Urkunde in sehr gutem Zustand.

        Giardino aritmetico.

      Milan: Per Lodovico Monza, 1646. Hardcover. Near Fine. 8vo [17.1 x 11.1 cm]. (5) ff., 214 pp. (final page erroneously numbered 114). Bound in contemporary vellum, title in ink on spine; minor staining to upper cover, lower cover slightly cockled. Internally very fresh. Very rare first and only edition of a practical handbook of business mathematics by Giovanni Battista Pisani (born circa 1606), who promises on the work's title page to help readers "solve the intricate Labyrinth of mercantile accounting." Pisani - who has an unusual literary touch - dedicates his Giardino aritmetico not to some grand Padrone, but to his brother Francesco, remarking that whereas the Garden of Hesperides had been guarded by a fearsome dragon, his Arithmetical Garden would be open to all who wish to take of its fruits. The small-format volume seems clearly to have been intended as a vademecum for Milanese merchants, and its practicality and portability in the marketplace perhaps account for its low survival rate today. Pisani begins by introducing more than 40 basic mathematical operations (various ways to multiply, divide, and work with fractions) before moving on to more practical matters of currency conversion and exchange, with special emphasis given to the monies of Venice, Naples, Palermo, Rome, and Frankfurt, and to the weights and measures of Milan and Genua. He then provides a list of tariffs relating to Milan trade and some 50 short examples concerning basic monetary operations. The greater part of the volume is given over to more than 250 examples and word problems of increasing complexity, treating matters such as converting between monies of differing base units, working with commodities, calculating profits and loss through interest, credits and debits, companies, partnerships, barter, rents, etc. Pisani's word problems paint a vivid picture of seventeenth-century mercantile life in Italy, with examples discussing the bottling of wine and olive oil, the storage of pepper, the stacking of silks, the measurement of carpets, the construction of houses and walls, the feeding of horses, and the handling of rice, saffron, brocades, wool, sugar, pearls, and soap, as well as the importing and exporting of goods among every major town on the peninsula and in Europe from Amsterdam, to Lisbon, to Lyon. Even Pisani's less-than-practical examples tend to be as amusing as they are instructive (e.g., how quickly would a lion, bear, leopard, and wolf, each of whom eats at a different rate, devour a single sheep together?). The easy, middle-class appeal of the work is further enhanced by the aphorisms - entirely unrelated to math - which appear at the foot of every page ("It's bad not to know, but worse not to want to learn," "The memory of a dead father is always strong in a virtuous son"). Giovanni Battista Pisani is perhaps best known for another practical publication, his writing manual Il primo libro di lettere corsiue (1641). His brother Francesco, a writing master in Rome, published the famous Tratteggiato da Penna in 1640. OCLC locates only two copies of the Giardino aritmetico, those at Columbia and Michigan. * Riccardi, Biblioteca Matematica Italiana, vol. 1, p. 282; G. Massa, Trattato Completo di Ragioneria, p. 225, no. 1646.
