        Neuer Vestungs-Bau.Düsseldorff, Jacobus von Wesel (colophon: printed by the heirs of Johann Kattepoel), 1709. 4to. With 14 (of 15) folding engraved plates. Contemporary tanned sheepskin.

      Jähns, p. 1383; Jordan 745 (3 copies); cf. Sloos, Warfare 8076. First German edition (second issue) of one of the greatest classics of the art of fortification, by the Inspector General of Dutch fortifications and Master General of the artillery, Menno van Coehoorn. While the Dutch had established themselves as the greatest masters of fortification during the Eighty Years' War for Dutch independence from Spain, the art did not stand still after peace came temporarily in 1648. Although a few Dutch engineers spoke out for reform, the Frenchman Sébastien Le Prestre de Vauban (1633-1707) was to dominate the field with his fortifications, defensive and especially offensive strategies, and publications on the subjects from the 1670s. Van Coehoorn (1641-1704), Vauban's only major rival, took a very different approach, more practical than theoretical, with his great fortification manual in 1685. He deployed troops more actively in the defence of fortifications and tailored his designs and strategies to the particular features of the site. This made them especially important for fortifications and siege warfare in the marshy flat lands of the Low Countries, circumstances less familiar to Vauban.With library stamp. With a blank leaf pasted over the instructions to the bookbinder on )(4v. The plates are quite lightly inked, so that they show a great deal of detail. Lacking 1 folding plate, with a small tear and some wrinkles in 1 folding plate (fig. I) and an occasional minor spot, but otherwise in very good condition. The binding is scuffed and shows some worm damage, with the head and foot of the backstrip chipped and the front hinge cracked, but with the sewing structure still sound. First German edition of a classic of Dutch fortification.

        Calabre citerieure et ulterieure

      1648. Incisione in rame, colorata d'epoca ai confini, mm 415x560. Sanson, geografo del Re Luigi XIII è considerato il fondatore della cartografia francese, tra i primi ad applicare la trigonometria nelle misurazioni geodetiche; infatti Nicolas Sanson e i suoi collaboratori realizzarono nuove proiezioni geografiche e pubblicarono numerosi atlanti, mentre si affermava l'impiego dei sistemi di misura indiretta mediante i procedimenti trigonometrici applicati in Olanda da Snellius fin dal 1617. Il rilevamento geodetico-topografico basato sulla triangolazione prese rapidamente piede dando alle carte geografiche un aspetto sempre più aderente alla realtà che rappresentavano.Buon esemplare in ottimo stato di conservazione.

        1648 Handwritten Manuscript of Aristotle Meteorology Weather Hydrology Latin

      Anno MDCXLVIII. Kal Rouen Franc: Pauesius scribebat. [1648]. - 1648 Handwritten Manuscript of Aristotle Meteorology Weather Hydrology Latin An extremely rare, handwritten manuscript of Aristotle’s ‘Meteorology.’ This early treatise was one of the earliest works to discuss behavior of water and air including evaporation, earthquakes, and other important wonders of weather. This famous treatise also covers properties of tornadoes, lightning, fire, behavior of the Nile River and Red Sea, and aspects of hydrology. Aristotle is also one of the earliest writers to describe the world as spherical, describing the world to be surrounded by water and air. While the first leaf of this manuscript appears to be a handwritten copy of an existing title page, we do not find that book to exist in any capacity. (Perhaps a translator’s attempt at publishing and was never printed.) Item number: #2491 Price: $1500 ARISTOTLE Disputationes in Metheorologiam Aristotelis guas dictabat Mannerius Societatis Iesu.

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 Desargue's views. These consisted of treatises devoted to -- manières universelles -- for the cutting of stones in architectures according to the principles of projective geometry and the making of sundials, etc. These attracted new assaults, this time from an expert in stonecutting, Curabelle, who devoted three pamphlets to the criticism of Desargues's works"].

        Le Trouvère Grand Opéra en quatre actes Représenté sur le Théâtre de l'Opéra Imperial Traducion Française de Mr. Emilien Pacini... Partition in 8o Piano et Chant Prix net 20f. [Piano-vocal score]

      Paris: Léon Escudier [PN L.E. 1648], 1857. First Edition, second issue of the revised version. Hopkinson 54B (citing two issues, the first of which is engraved and the second lithographed). Including ballet music newly-composed for the Paris production by Verdi to pp. 155-202. l trovatore, to a libretto by Salvadore Cammarano with additions by Leone Emanuele Bardare after Antonio García Gutiérrez's play El trovador, was first performed in Rome at the Teatro Apollo on January 19, 1853 and in a revised version (as La trouvère) in Paris at the Opéra on January 12, 1857. "Il trovatore, though without doubt one of the two or three most popular Verdi operas, has until recently fared rather badly with critics and commentators, mostly because of its unabashedly formalistic exterior in comparison with the works on either side of it, Rigoletto and La traviata. This attitude at last shows signs of changing, perhaps as our criteria for judging Verdi's musical dramas alter with time. Indeed, many of the most important stages in the critical rehabilitation of this opera have concentrated attention on just those aspects that were earlier castigated. The libretto, for example, with its immovable character types and 'unrealistic' stage action, has recently been seen as one of the work's great strengths, its economy of dramatic means and immediacy of language forming the perfect basis on which to build Verdian musical drama. Similarly, the extreme formalism of the musical language has been seen as serving to concentrate and define the various stages of the drama, above all channelling them into those key confrontations that mark its inexorable progress." "But if one trait can be singled out that best accounts for the opera's success, it is probably the sheer musical energy apparent in all the numbers. Time and again we find a relentless rhythmic propulsion in the accompaniment, and a tendency for the melodic lines to be forced into a restrictive compass, freeing themselves rarely but with consequent explosive power." Roger Parker in Grove Music Online.. Large octavo. Dark brown morocco-backed brown textured paper boards, upper with initials "C.G." gilt, spine with titling gilt. 1f. (recto title within decorative border incorporating the names of various Verdi operas, verso blank), Lithographed. Publisher's facsimile signature handstamp to lower outer corner of title. Binding slightly worn, rubbed, and bumped; front endpaper with small chip to outer edge. Slightly foxed.

      Alla Pace si stampano per Gio. Giacomo de Rossi, In Roma 1648 - In-4 oblungo (235x185 mm.), frontespizio inciso + ritratto dell'autore racchiuso in uno scudo contornato da elementi architettonici baroccheggianti + 18 tavole incise (prevalentemente bastioni). Legatura in mezza pelle della prima metà del secolo XIX, dorso liscio con titolo inciso in oro su tassello, piatti marmorizzati. Normali e lievi segni d'uso, due sbiadite macchiette alle prime due carte, ma bell'esemplare. Atlante fortificatorio assai importante, che testimonia del grado di perfezione raggiunto dai procedimenti di carattere geometrico-matematico intesi alla rappresentazione grafica su un piano dell'immagine di una figura dello spazio, proiettando cioè la stessa da un centro prospettico posto a una distanza finita. Questa elaborata tecnica doveva poter consentire di riconoscere facilmente su carta "come in uno specchio" (come recita il titolo) la figura dello spazio (il bastione), ed era perciò destinata (sempre come recita il titolo) a "soldati ma ancora a qualunque altra persona che o del disegno o delle mattematiche ed in particolare delle prospettive si dilettano". Girolamo Portigiani (1540- 1591), proveniente da un'antica famiglia di fonditori fiorentini, fu anch'egli "maestro di getti" oltre che architetto civile e militare e ingegnere idraulico al servizio del duca di Savoia Carlo Emanuele I. Questa sua opera, come è noto, è rarissima. Bibliografia: Riccardi, II, 312: "raro". Marini, pp. 94-95: (segnala 20 tavole). Manzi, 135. D'Ayala, p. 114. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        1648 Francis Bacon Natural History v Philosophy Scientific Experiments Puritan

      Lugduni Batavorium: Franc. Hackium, 1648. - 1648 Francis Bacon Natural History v Philosophy Scientific Experiments Puritan “Some books should be tasted, some devoured, but only a few should be chewed and digested thoroughly.” Francis Bacon Francis Bacon, one of the most famous English philosophers and scientists of the Renaissance. While most of his work deals with discovery, scientific method, and the scientific revolution, he did lean strongly toward Puritanism in his personal devotion. An extremely rare Elzevier printing of Bacon’s “Historia Naturalis,” or ‘Natural History.’ While Elzevier does not appear on the imprint or title page, Willems makes mention that Hackiana was an extension of the house of Elzevier. In this work, Francis Bacon sought to show the divisions of natural history, but more importantly to show how natural history overlaps with natural philosophy and they are not two distinct disciplines. This book helped lay the foundation for many philosophical methodologies that would be important through the 18th- and 19th-centuries. Item number: #1898 Price: $750 BACON, Francis Fr.

        La Biblioteca Aprosiana

      Manolessi. Two parts in one volume, 12mo (137x69 mm). (10), 733 [i.e. 683], (1 blank) pp. Roman and Italic type. With a frontispiece engraved by Giovanni Mattia Striglioni after Domenico Piola, showing the inside of a library with, on top, the coat-of-arms of Giovanni Niccolò Cavanna, dedicatee of the work and friend of the author. The second part opens with a separate title-page on p. 667. At l. C12r half-page woodcut illustration depicting an Egyptian stele. Contemporary green morocco, panels within gilt frame, richly decorated gilt spine with four raised bands and red morocco lettering-piece, marbled endpapers. Reference notes in English by an eighteenth-century hand on the front flyleaves. A fine copy. RARE FIRST EDITION, financed by the dedicatee Giovanni Niccolò Cavanna and edited by Lorenzo Legati, of the catalogue of the first public library of Liguria, the Aprosiana Library, named after its founder, the Augustinian Friar Angelico Aprosio, and established in 1648 at the Augustinian monastery of Ventimiglia. The library contained over ten thousand volumes (cf. L. Gavazzi, Angelico Aprosio, la Biblioteca Aprosiana e il complesso di Sant'Agostino a Ventimiglia, Ventimiglia, 2010). The work consists of a list of the collection supporters - the "Fautori" -, arranged in alphabetical order by first name. For each "Fautore", the author gives bio-bibliographical notes and describes the books donated by him to the library. In most cases the donor is also a writer or a scholar who gave to the library works of his own. The catalogue interrupts at the letter C. The continuation (up to letter M) remained unpublished and is known only in an autograph manuscript that Aprosio prepared for printing, which is today preserved at the University Library in Genoa. The second part of the volume contains the Biblioteca Aprosiana cantata by Pier Francesco Minozzi. The name of the author is concealed behind the pseudonym of Cornelio Aspasio Antivigilmi, actually Aprosio's anagram including also the name of his hometown, Ventimiglia. Angelico Aprosio entered the Augustinian order at the age of fifteen. He lived for a while in Genoa and Siena, before moving to Monte San Savino (1632-1634), where he taught philosophy and met the lifelong friend P.F. Minozzi. From there he moved back to Genoa in 1634. From 1637 to 1648 he was in Treviso and Venice, where he made the acquaintance of G. F. Loredan and Pietro Michiel, on whose libertine book Arte degli Amanti he wrote a commentary. Aprosio was also in touch with other learned scholars like L. Mancini, G. Scioppio, and L. Allacci. In 1647 he was invited by Giuliano Spinola, whose son was a pupil of Aprosio, to go back to Genoa. In 1648 he finally found a house for his already conspicuous library in the monastery of his order in Ventimiglia. In 1653 the library was officially recognized by Pope Innocent X, who issued a ban prohibiting the sale of any of its books, and was open to the public. In the following years, Aprosio dedicated himself to increasing the library, enlarging the monastery to host the volumes, and compiling the library catalogue. The library was partly dispersed in 1798 upon the arrival of the French troops and with the suppression of the Augustinian order. Part of the volumes ended up in the National Library of Genoa. In his last years Aprosio corresponded with G. Naudé, F. Redi, Gronovius, the cardinal Mazarin, and above all with Antonio Magliabechi. Aprosio died in 1681. La Biblioteca Aprosiana is also the most important source about his life (A. Asor-Rosa, Aprosio, Angelico, in: "Dizionario Biografico degli Italiani", III, 1961, s.v.). Melzi, I, p. 69; Brunet, I, 325; Peignot, 77..

      Cambridge: printed by Roger Daniel, and are to be sold by John Williams at the signe of the Crown in Pauls Church-yard, 1647 / 1648. Small Folio: [16], 286, [28, chronological table and index]pp, with additional engraved title page depicting the crusades and folding map of Palestine; [8],189 [124 mis-numbered 104], 200-394,435-510 (pagination is irregular, per ESTC Citation No. R6571, but text is continuous), with additional engraved title-page and 20 engraved portraits. The Profane State has separate title page, dated 1642. Contemporary full calf boards paneled in gilt, spine rebacked in period style with red morocco lettering piece gilt, marbled edges and end papers. A Fine copy, tightly bound, pages fresh and bright, with excellent impressions of the plates; minor marginal staining to first few leaves, repairs to explanatory leaf opposite first frontispiece. Pforzheimer 390 and 92 (for first editions). Lowndes 847 (citing this edition of The Holy State as "best"). Wither to Prior 386 and 387. Wing F2438 and F2444. Allibone, p. 643. The Holy War is the third edition, with re-engraved title page (Pforzheimer). The Holy State is the second edition, enlarged. Based on Fuller's extensive reading in medieval sources, The Holy War is the first modern history of the crusades in English. In his judgment, the Papacy, in waging them, had spent European lives and wealth for nothing more than a faraway plot of land and a few relics. The Holy State and The Profane State, Fuller's celebrated studies in virtue and vice--"the most popular and characteristic of all his books" (ODNB)--provides rule of conduct, offering as exemplars a rich collection of model characters, along with short biographies of historical figures from Queen Elizabeth and Sir Francis Drake to St. Augustine and Joan of Arc. Allibone calls it, "Perhaps . . . the best of his works; and certainly [it] displays to better advantage than any his original and vigorous powers of thinking."

Johann Heinrich Boeclerus (1611-72) var tysk historiker och från år 1637 professor i vältalighet i Strassburg. Som sådan introducerade han den unge Schefferus i studiet av klassikerna. Han kallades av drottning Kristina till den skytteanska professuren i Uppsala 1647, men avböjde och rekommenderade istället Schefferus. 1649 kom han ändå till Sverige och Uppsala som professor i vältalighet och 1651 utnämndes han till rikshistoriograf. Han stannade dock endast till 1651, då han återvände till Strassburg och professorsstolen i historia.

First edition. - 1648 1st ed Francis Bacon Sylva Sylvarum New Atlantis Philosophy Opium Healing “Some books should be tasted, some devoured, but only a few should be chewed and digested thoroughly.” Francis Bacon Francis Bacon, one of the most famous English philosophers and scientists of the Renaissance. While most of his work deals with discovery, scientific method, and the scientific revolution, he did lean strongly toward Puritanism in his personal devotion. This book ‘Sylva Sylvarum’ with ‘Novus Atlas’ is a famous set of philosophical treatises covering topics such as medical treatments for prolonged life and preservation of youth by using opium! Bacon wrote this book as a collection of miscellaneous topics – others include ancient wisdom and secrets. This Latin translation was edited by Jacob Gruter and includes a preface by William Rawley. Rawley, Bacon’s secretary, decided to add the unfinished but fascinating ‘New Atlantis’ to the end of this printing of ‘Sylva’. In 1648, both Elzevier and Hackiana published examples of this work; however, Hackiana decided to re-engrave the illustrated title page. Item number: #1228 Price: $599 BACON, Francis Fr.

        Funffzehende Schiffart: Warhafftiger und zuvor nie erhorter bericht eines Engelischen welcher mit einem Schiff die Auffart genandt in Cambaia.

      1648 - The second edition of Hulsius's German translation from the 1612 edition. 4to. Engraved fignette on the title. Modern boards. 75pp. Franckfurt, Le Blon, Coverte's account of the fourth east india Company voyage to the East Indies, following the first edition published in London in 1612. The author was steward on board the Ascension under Capt. Sharpey they left Plymouth with a companion vessel the Union , in March 1607, and, on their voyage south, were among the first Englishmen to see the Cape of Good Hope, arriving there in July 1608. The Ascension having separated from the the Union in a storm reached India, via Madagascar, Pemba Island and Socotra, the ship ran aground while approaching Surat. Not granted permission to remain in Surat, the crew departed to various destinations. Coverte and others set out for the Moghul Court at Agra, arriving there in December 1609. He and other crew members left Agra in January 1610 ?with the intention of making their way back to the Levant by the overland route. Travelling by way of Kandahar, Esfahan, and Baghdad.they reached Aleppo in December 1610 and from the coast of the Levant sailed for England. They subsequently arrived home in April 1611? (Howgego). An absorbing account presented in the form of a travel diary, Penrose described the work as a ?vigorous narrative.it relates its author's reception by the Emperor Jahangir, and his tedious journey across India, Afghanistan, and Persia, and as such is one of the best examples of a travel journal that the period produced.? As pointed out by Parker ( Books to Build an Empire ) ?This voyage marks the lowest depth to which the company's misfortunes sank in its early years, for the loss of the two ships nearly ruined it financially . during these years of unprededented English travel and trade into the east there was a great dearth of literature describing the voyages of the East India company's ships. between 1608 and 1614 only one book appeared which described England's new-found commerce. Church 307. cf.Howgego, C211; Penrose (Travel & Discovery in the Renaissance), p324.; Parker ( Books to Build an Empire ) p181 et sec.; Mendelssohn, p.388. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
