Grotius, Hugo
The last edition upon which Grotius was to work, published posthumously and including matter he had deemed prudent to exclude from previous editions, this the text chosen by the Carnegie Endowment as the basis for its edition in the 20th century. Modern blind tooled calf, some light browning, else a very good, crisp copy, with the title page printed in red and black. Apud Iohannem Blaev, Amsterdami, 1646.

ASSARINO, Luca.
In Venetia, per li Turrini. 1646 - [16], 292 [ie 192]. 12mo. Old waterstain visible on original coarse grain paper wrappers, not intrusive in text. Hand-lettered backstrip, sl. worn. Unrecorded by Copac, which only notes editions of 1642 and 1654 (although another was published in Turin also in 1646). Assarino, 1602?72, was a Genoese writer, probably born in Potosì in Bolivia, who led a turbulent life as a political informer, with several spells in prison. He compiled Il Sincero, the first Italian newspaper, and historical works, such as Delle rivoluzioni di Catalogna (1644) and Delle Guerre e Successi d'Italia (1662). His extremely successful novels included La Stratonica (1635), which was translated into French, English, and German, and L'Almerinda (1640), later expanded and completely reworked in I Giuochi di Fortuna (1655).

BROWNE, Thomas.
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].

Langlois. frontispice, portrait, (34), 222 pages et 42 planches vélin ancien 1646, 1646, in-folio, frontispice, portrait, (34), 222 pages et 42 planches, vélin ancien, Première édition latine, en partie originale. La première partie de cet ouvrage, est la seule parue d'une oeuvre plus vaste que Niceron ne put mener à bien et dont la première édition date de 1638. A sa mort en 1646, ses amis reprirent son manuscrit et le publièrent dans sa version latine sous le titre Thaumaturgus Opticus. Mais l'achèvement de cette publication fut finalement accompli par Marin Mersenne, puis, à la mort de ce dernier, en 1648, par Roberval, et donna lieu à une édition en français en 1651-1652. "C'est un travail scientifique où la science évolue dans l'atmosphère d'un conte. [...] Conçue comme une machine de précision, avec ses agencements secrets, la perspective qui éloigne et rapproche, qui fait bouger et qui anime les formes de l'univers de l'illusion", appartient aux miracles, à la magie, à la poésie. (Baltrusaitis, Anamorphoses ou perspectives curieuses, Perrin, 1950, p. 22).

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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Rom: Herman Scheus Titelblatt zu Pater Ferraris berühmtem und seltenen Buch "Hesperides sive De malorum aureorum cultura et usus" über Aufzucht und Nutzen von Zitrusfrüchten. großer Original-Kupferstich von Greuter (in der Platte signiert) nach einem Gemälde von Guido Reni, auf großem rückseitig unbedrucktem Büttenblatt mit dekorativ abgesetztem Plattenrand und großem Wasserzeichen, Plattengröße ca. 30,5 x 21,5 cm, Blattgröße ca. 39,5 x 27 cm, im breiten Blattrand außerhalb des Plattenrandes leicht gebräunt und etwas Alterspatina, ansonsten sauber und bemerkenswert gut erhalten, sehr selten und für uns anderenorts antiquarisch nicht nachweisbar, unser Blatt identisch mit der im British Museum vorhandenen Radierung - Pater Ferrari war 1646 der erste, der die berühmten "goldenen Äpfel der Hesperiden", die Hercules alias Heraklid in einer seiner zwölf Aufgaben zu stehlen hatte, mit Zitrusfrüchten gleichsetzte und deshalb den botanischen Namen "Hesperides" für Zitrusfrüchte vorschlug. Diese Interpretation macht insofern Sinn, als der Garten der Hesperiden, der in der griechischen Mythologie schon immer am äußersten westlichen Ende der den Griechen bekannten Welt gesehen wurde, heute mit einer der Kanarischen Inseln identifiziert wird. Dort wachsen nicht nur Limonen und Orangen, sondern es existieren auch Nachkommen urzeitlicher Riesenechsen, die hinter dem griechischen Mythos des Drachen "Ladon" stehen könnten, der den "Apfelbaum" der Hesperiden zu bewachen hatte. 2100 gr.

KIRCHER, Athanasius.
Rome: Sumptibus Hermanni Scheus, ex typographia Ludovici Grignani, 1646. First edition. First edition of Kircher's principal contribution to optics, treating light, shadow, colour, refraction, projection, distortion and luminescence, and providing early descriptions of the camera obscura and magic lantern. The work also includes some of the earliest observations with a microscope, preceding those of Hooke and van Leeuwenhoek by two decades. "The first published account of the illumination and projection of images appeared in the first edition of Athanasius Kircher's Ars magna lucis et umbrae (1646)" (Bud & Warner, p. 365). "The use of mirrors to project secret messages into dark spaces was taken up in the seventeenth century by Athanasius Kircher, who, though he ridiculed the extravagant claims of Agrippa, described methods for projecting texts using both sunlight and candles, with the aid of both flat and concave mirrors, and a convex lens. Kircher described this art as "Catoptric Steganography", and if we are to believe that the magic lantern anticipated the slide-show, Kircher's Catoptric Steganography was the early modern version of the Powerpoint presentation" (Lefèvre, p. 44). "Kircher's theory of colour was at root Aristotelian and Aguilonian in type ... Kircher has amplified the Aguilonian scheme by introducing the mixtures of the 'median colours' with black and white, but the basic pattern is identical, relying upon the white and black poles between which come yellow, red and blue together with the three 'composites', orange, green and purple ...

VONDEL, J. VAN DEN.
Various places, various printers, 1646-1730. Fine composite set in 10 volumes. 4to. 18th-century speckled calf with centre compartments within gilt decorative borders with floral ornaments in the corners on both sides, gilt outside border, spines gilt with raised bands, labels with gilt lettering, slight damage to head and/or foot of spines of some volumes, but a very nice set. Joost van den Vondel (1587-1679), poet and dramatist, was born in Cologne to Mennonite parents who had fled Antwerp, and would eventually settle in Amsterdam. It was there that van den Vondel taught himself French and Latin. He became one of the most important and influential writers of the period known as the "Gouden Eeuw" ("Golden Century"): this period of extraordinary wealth (both materially and culturally) in which van de Vondel was by far the greatest dramatist of Holland. His fame lasted to the present and his works remained in print long after his death. Vols 1-2.: Poëzy of verscheide gedichten.
