        "Carte particolare del'Isola di Cuba e di Jamaica con il Capo della Floride e l'Isole Intorno"From: Dell' Arcano del Mare

      Florence, 1646. AN IMPORTANT MAP OF THE WEST INDIES FROM THE FIRST ENGLISH SEA ATLAS THE FIRST TO USE THE MERCATOR PROJECTION THROUGHOUT Framed size: 40" x 29" Paper size: 30 1/4" x 19 1/2" Although Dell' Arcano del Mare was published in Italy, it is considered the first printed English nautical atlas, and Dudley's monumental work was the only exception to the total dominance of sea atlas production by the Dutch for nearly a century. Arguably the most sumptuous marine atlas ever produced, it contained no less than 146 sea charts, and dozens of illustrations and working diagrams. It was superior to any previous work in that the charts illustrated the whole world, the first time any outside of Europe had been included. Dell' Arcano del Mare was also the first atlas to show the prevailing winds, currents and magnetic deviation. One of the great marine atlases of all time, the work was magnificently engraved, an encyclopedia of 17th-century knowledge regarding the seas. The distinctive and stately calligraphic style of this map, which shows the Atlantic coast of North America from Labrador down to the present-day southeastern United States, is a hallmark of Dudley's elegant charts. One of the first highly accurate sea charts to focus on this vast area, this is an important map from an extremely significant atlas. . Book.

Lättare lager- och småfläckar, en fuktfläck sid. 59-60 och fläckar sid. 446-447 och 467-468. Kraftigare fuktrand från sid. 473 och framåt. Nött samtida skinnband, guldornerad rygg med upphöjda bind, pärmarna med förgyllda dubbla ramlinjer, röda stänsksnitt. Ryggen litet trasig upptill. Äldre raderad namnteckning på försättsbladet. Ur Christian H. Braads bibliotek, med hans namnteckning, daterad Norrköping 23 april 1746, och hans notering på försättsbladet att han fått den av Harald Urlander i Norrköping. Ur Ericsbergs bibliotek, med Carl Jedvard Bondes exlibris. Warmholtz 1376. Carlander II, 597f & III, 568ff. Första upplagan, tryckt av Johannes Jansonius i Amsterdam. Denna första del av planerade tre var allt som utkom, p.g.a. författarens död. En ny upplaga trycktes i Antwerpen 1658 och då utkom alla tre delarna. Faxardos historik över goterna som börjar med Alarik blev väl mottagen i Sverige och Sparwenfeld översatte den till svenska redan 1699, varav några ark hann tryckas innan arbetet avbröts. Warmholtz nämner att den svenska utgåvan skulle förses med spanska kungarnas porträtt som graverats i Rom. Här blandar Warmholtz dock troligen ihop det med de av Truls Arwidssons graverade plåtarna till en planerad svensk utgåva av Tesaurus bok om göternas och langobardernas historia (se Klemming En antecknares samlingar s. 3). Den spanske politikern och filosofen Don Diego Saavedra Faxardo (1584-1648) var bl.a. spanskt kungligt råd vid fredförhandlingarna i Münster. Hans mest kända bok är kanske emblemboken och furstespegeln "Idea de un Principe Politico Christiano". Christopher Henrik Braad (1728-81) var en framstående litterär samlare med ett stort bibliotek i historia och antikviteterna. Han skriver i kommentaren på försättsbladet att han fått denna fina och sällsynta bok av Dragsdisponenten i Norrköping Harald Urlander. Urlander, som blev disponent på Drags (Norrköpings yllefabriksaktiebolag) 1736 efter Petter Ehrenspetz, är känd för att han tvingade kvinnorna på Spinnhuset i Norrköping att arbeta där. 1748 gick han dock i konkurs

Altra etichetta cartacea applicata. Terza edizione della traduzione degli Elementi di Euclide fatta da P. Le Mardelé, le prime due vennero stampate a Parigi nel 1622 e nel 1632. L?opera è composta da tredici libri: i primi sei sono dedicati alla geometria piana, i successivi tre alle proprietà dei numeri razionali, il decimmo agli irrazionali. Gli ultimi tre libri sono dedicati alla misurazione dei volumi dei solidi: parallelepipedi, prismi e piramidi ed a quelli dei coni, cilindri e sfere. Gli ulteriori due libri, quattordicesimo e quindicesimo sono invece attrubuiti ad Hypsicle. A partire dal XVI secolo l?opera cominciò ad essere tradotta anche in lingua francese. Pierre Le Mardelé della cui vita non si hanno notizie, e che fu autore di un trattato di matematica nel 1626, fu violentemente attaccato dal contemporaneo Henrion, che aveva curato un?altra traduzione nel 1631.

With the licence leaf preceding the title page, but without the final blank leaf. Top page edges gilt. Woodcut intitials.

        Le Théâtre du monde, ou nouvel atlas....quatrieme partie [Theatrum, volume IV: England and Wales]

      Amsterdam: 1646. Folio. (20 x 13 3/8 inches). Mounted on guards throughout. French text, letterpress title on slip within hand-coloured engraved architectural border, heightened in gilt, 60 engraved general and county maps (59 double-page) including general maps of Scotland and Ireland preceded by a printed divisional half-title (not called for in the index at end), all finely coloured by a contemporary hand, 71 illustrations, (3 hand-coloured.) (L1 browned at inner margin, some light marginal damp-staining). Publisher's vellum gilt with yapp fore-edges, covers paneled with stylized foliage roll, and large central and corner arabesques, spine in eight compartments with repeat tooling in gilt, gilt edges (ties lacking as usual. covers scuffed), modern black morocco- backed cloth box, "spine" gilt. An unrecorded variant edition of Blaeu's atlas of England and Wales. Not in Koeman; not in Skelton The fifty-eight maps normally found in the French editions are supplemented by an appendix with a half-title and two new maps. These new maps are general maps of Scotland and Ireland, which were the first two maps completed for Blaeu's atlas of Scotland. The forthcoming publication of the Scotland atlas is announced on the half-title, but it did not appear on the market until 1654 (as volume 5 of the Theatrum ). Neither Koeman nor Skelton mention a French edition with this appendix, which is normally found in the Dutch- text edition of 1647 (Koeman B145B). The ephemeral nature of this edition is confirmed by the fact that the supplement is not mentioned in the index at the end. The present atlas is volume four of the six-volume French text edition of the Theatrum (or Théâtre du Monde). The volumes of the Theatrum were published separately from 1635 to 1655. Volume 4 was introduced with French text in 1645. In its completed form, the Theatrum was the finest and most accurate atlas yet to have been published. The Atlas of England and Wales consists of a series of lavishly ornamented maps, including a separate map for each county of England and Wales. Cf.Koeman Bl-42 B; Skelton 43.

Provenance: Nico Israel, Amsterdam, 11 June 1975; Christopher Henry Beaumont Pease, Lord Wardington (1924-2005), his sale Library of Important Atlases and Geographies, 18th October 2005, lot 147. THE FIRST ENGLISH NAUTICAL ATLAS AND THE FIRST MARITIME ATLAS TO USE THE MERCATOR PROJECTION First edition. Robert Dudley's "Secrets of the Sea" is "ONE OF THE GREATEST ATLASES OF THE WORLD and one of the most complex ever produced: it is the first sea-atlas of the whole world; the first with all the charts constructed using Mercator's new projection, as corrected by Edward Wright; the first to give magnetic declination; the first to give prevailing winds and currents... the first to expound the advantages of "Great Circle Sailing"; and ... the first sea-atlas to be compiled by an Englishman..." (Lord Wardington). Dudley's monumental work was the only exception to the total dominance of sea-atlas production by the Dutch for nearly a century. The complete work contained nearly 150 sea charts as well as dozens of illustrations and working diagrams. It was superior to any previous work in that the charts illustrated the whole world, the first time any outside of Europe had been included. His atlas was also the first to importantly show the prevailing winds, currents and magnetic deviation. In using the projection developed by Mercator, Dudley improved upon the theory of navigating by the "Great Circle," the shortest distance between two points on a globe. It was not until the eighteenth century that cartographers used the projection consistently, and during the prolonged period when the Dutch dominated cartographic production, not one atlas was published using it. This magnificently engraved work is an encyclopedia of seventeenth-century knowledge regarding the seas. Dudley was one of the more colorful and adventurous characters in the history of mapmaking. The illegitimate son of the Earl of Leicester and Lady Douglas Sheffield, but unable to establish his claim to the title of Earl of Leicester, Dudley left England in 1605. Arriving in Florence, Dudley entered the service of the Cosimo II, Grand Duke of Tuscany, as an engineer and naval commander. In 1646, Dudley published "Arcano del mare", the whole written in Italian by Dudley himself. The atlas was twelve years in the making, and the main innovation lay in its conception of a world atlas of charts, both general ocean charts and detailed surveys, covering all the rival spheres of European dominion: Spanish, English and Dutch. Dudley's sources included the original charts of Henry Hudson, and for the Pacific coast he used the observations of Henry Cavendish, the third circumnavigator of the globe and Dudley's brother-in-law. From the distinguished library of Lord Wardington, whose collection of Atlases was unique: "a panoply of the history of cartography and of great mapmakers" (Andrew Phillips "An Appreciation", Sotheby's sale catalogue).

The plates are included in the pagination, so that verso of plates are blank and 1 leaf has a plate on both sides (Ff3). Comprising 4 mythological plates, 1 plate with numismatics, 79 botanical plates and 10 showing orangeries, tools etc. A bit of faint browning to the first part of textleaves. Broad-margined, plates fine.. Scarce first (and only) edition of this great book, best described as a "CITRUS ENCYCLOPEDIA" with its magnificent plates, drawn and engraved by Cornelis Bloemaerts, one of the great Dutch 17th-century botanical artists, and shows life-sized whole fruits and their sections."The plates were produced by the best artists of the time, such as Johann Friedrich Greuter, Cornelis Bloemaert and Nicolas Joseph Foucault. Plates were also prepared by the renowned painters and draughtsmen of Roman Baroque, such as Pietro da Cortona, Andrea Sacchi, Nicolas Poussin, Pietro Paolo Ubaldini, F. Perier, Francesco Albani, Philippe Gagliard, F. Ramanelli, Guido Reni, Dominic Zampieri and H. Rinaldi. The plates show life-sized whole fruit, including sections. Other plates show Hercules, mythological scenes, garden buildings, Orangeries, garden tools, etc.."(Wikipedia)."Hesperides is a book in four parts with the first part elaborating on the archaeological, numismatic, mythological and etymological background to citrus lore. The next three parts are about citrons, lemons, and oranges respectively. Perhaps the most notable aspect of these three sections is Ferrari's extensive and dedicated effort to establish precise taxonomic data. "If the taxonomic drive in the De Florum Cultura is strong, it is almost overwhelming in the Hesperides." (Freedberg). Ferrari's method depended upon the close examination of specimens which he obtained from gardens and collections in and out of Rome. He was fortunate in having a large number of correspondents who sent him reports and specimens and, of course, Cassiano was the invaluable primary correspondent and collector. Hesperides includes eighty botanical plates which were the work of seven important artists of the time and the engravings were done by Johann Friedrich Greuter and Cornelis Bloemaert. There are also a number of illustrations of other subjects such as orangeries and ancient statues; these were likewise the work of eminent Roman artists and engravers. Three plates show the arrival of the apples of the Hesperides in Italy, specifically at Rome, Naples, and Lake Garda. Others illustrate stories from mythology, and the entire effect of the book is to show a combination of botanical science, story-telling, and poetic explanation. Perhaps it may be best described as a "citrus encyclopedia"."Hesperides sive de Malorum Aureorum cultura", resulted directly from his close relationship with Cassiano dal Pozzo, one of Rome's leading scholars and patrons of natural history studies. Along with many other scholars of his time, Cassiano was intensely interested in the citrus family, and he not only corresponded extensively on the subject, he collected specimens from many quarters. In its final form, Hesperides was a collaborative work even though Cassiano's name is not included in the authorship. He was the source of much of the information for the book, while Ferrari was the editor, composer, and author; Cassiano also managed the financing of the publication." (Robert F. Erickson)."The Garden of the Hesperides is Hera's orchard in the west, where either a single tree or a grove of immortality-giving golden apples grew. The apples were planted from the fruited branches that Gaia gave to her as a wedding gift when Hera accepted Zeus. The Hesperides were given the task of tending to the grove, but occasionally plucked from it themselves. Not trusting them, Hera also placed in the garden a never-sleeping, hundred-headed dragon named Ladon as an additional safeguard. After Heracles completed his first ten Labours, Eurystheus gave him two more claiming that neither the Hydra counted (because Iolaus helped Heracles) nor the Augean stables (either because he received payment for the job or because the rivers did the work). The first of these two additional Labours was to steal the apples from the garden of the Hesperides. Heracles first caught the Old Man of the Sea, the shape-shifting sea god, to learn where the Garden of the Hesperides was located." (Wikipedia).Hunt: 243.

        "l'historia di milano volgarmente scritta... nella quale non solamente si veggono l'origine, i fatti, et le fortune di essa citta', nello spatio di due mille cento anni; ma gli accidenti, et le resolutioni di quasi tutta l'italia, et di molte provincie, et regni del mondo ancora. con le vite insieme di tutti gli imperatori..." in padoa, frambotto, 1646.

      Due opere in un volume di cm. 22, pp. (72) 982; (1) 111 (1). La seconda opera, con autonomo frontespizio titola: CORIO B. Le Vite degl'Imperatori, incominciando da Giulio Cesare fino a Federico Barbarossa. In Padoa, Paolo Frambotto, 1646. Legatura strettamente coeva in piena pergamena semirigida con titoli manoscritti al dorso. Bell'esemplare, genuino e marginoso. Pregiata riedizione secentesca della celebre storia di Milano del Corio, pubblicata per la prima volta nel 1503 e costituente la più compiuta ricostruzione storiografica delle vicende milanesi compiuta nel Rinascimento. La trattazione, quanto a impostazione tipico portato della storiografia umanistica, parte dalle origini della città per giungere sino alla fuga di Ludovico il Moro in Germania. La seconda opera delinea le biografie di numerosi Imperatori da Giulio Cesare sino a Federico Barbarossa. Il Corio (Milano, 1459-in località non conosciuta, 1519 ca.) fu storico, giureconsulto e letterato. Dal 1474 al servizio di Galeazzo Maria Sforza, in seguito alla sua morte passò al servizio di Gian Galeazzo Maria e assunse svariati incarichi pubblici (nel 1499 fu nominato giudice delle strade) nel periodo del ducato di Ludovico il Moro. Alla caduta del Moro abbandonò Milano, e non si conoscono con certezza ne' la data ne' il luogo della sua morte. STC XVII Century, 261. Michel-Michel, II, 130. Cat. Hoepli, 649. Cfr. Predari, p. 136. Argelati, I, II, 467. Tiraboschi, VI, 749: ""...Scritto esattissimo, minuto talora fino all'eccesso, e diligente nel corredare la Storia di molti autentici documenti"".
