        Les Isles des Indes. "India Orientalis Nova Descriptio

      Asia: Amsterdam. J. Janssonius. 1649. Copper engraved map of South East Asia by Janssonius. from "Le Nouveau Theatre Du Monde Ou Nouvel Atlas " Vol 3. Black & white; French text to verso. Decorative title cartouche; scale and imprint with strapwork surrounds and compass roses to sea above each. The map first appeared in 1630. "The Hondius-Jansson publication included a completele new map of Southeast Asia and the East Indian archipelago by Jan Jansson entitled 'India Orientalis Nova Descriptio'. The map was the most accurate, as well as one of the most elegant, seventeenth-century maps of the East Indian Islands, and included one of the first inferences to the discoveries made on the northwestern coast of Australia in 1606 by William Jansz in the ship Duyfken. On the south coast of New Guinea the name 'Dufkens Eylant' appears, thereby immortalizing the name of the ship by which Australia had been discovered in 1606; however, the map only reaches ten degrees south latitude and does not show any part of the Australian mainland. The False Cape (Valschen Caep) and the Torres Strait or embayment, if they were mapped at all, would be hidden behind the decorative scale bar. Schilder believes that Jansson's map was of the greatest importance until the copy of the original 'Duyfken' map and the 1622 manuscript map of the Pacific by Hessel Gerritz, Blaeu's predecessor in the post of Official Hydrographer to the VOC, were found. William Blaeu must have been privy to these discoveries from his official position in the Dutch East India Company, but he did not publish his classic regional map, 'India Quae Orientalis Dicitur et Insulae Adiacentes' showing part of the Australian mainland, until 1635." (Parry, p.105) Good impression; lightly toned as so often with Janssonius' maps; maps; some light creases t0 blank margins. short centre fold split at lower blank margin [20mm]repaired with archival tape to verso; old tape to corner at verso from former mounting. Johannes Janssonius (approx. 1588-1664) came from a family of printers and publishers and learned the book printing trade at an early age. In 1612 he married the daughter of Jodocus Hondius and thus became a member of one of the most important publishing families in the Netherlands. During the 1630s he went into partnership with his brother-in-law Henricus Hondius and published more editions of the Mercator/Hondius atlases with the addition of the name Jansson. He grew their publishing house in the fields of geography and cartography and published newly compiled world, sea and city atlases, always competing with the Blaeu publishing house. His main works were the "Atlas Majoris Appendix" (1639), the six-volume "Atlas Novus" (1638 ff.) and the monumental "Atlas Major" comprising eleven volumes (1647).

        IOHANIS SCHRÖDERI PHARMACOPOEIA MEDICO - CHYMICA sive THESAURUS PHARMACOLOGICUS. Quo composita quaeque celebriora; hinc Mineralia, Vegetalia & Animalia Chymico - Medicè describuntur, atque insuper Principia Physicae Hermetico - Hippocraticae candidè exhibentur. Opus non minus utile Physicis, quàm Medicis. Editio tertia, plurimis in locis auctum ac emendatum. Ulmae Svevorum, Impensis Johannis Gerlini, Bibliop., 1649.

      Testo latino. 3^edizione. Cm.18,7x15,2. Pg.(28), 516, 348, (58). Sobria legatura in piena pergamena rigida con titoli e fregi impressi in oro al dorso. Tagli spruzzati. Doppio frontespizio: il primo è riccamente decorato a piena pagina, con ritratto dell'Autore, scene di preparazioni farmaceutiche, vedute bucoliche e di animali e stemma allegorico in ovale con il motto "Ditabit servata Fides". In esso è riportata la dizione "Iohanis Schröderi M.D. Pharmacopoeia Medico - Chymica. Plurimis locis correcta, multisque novis Hosculiis adornata. Divulgata sub Censura Ampl. Collegij Medici Ulmensis. Sumptibus Johannis Gerlini Bibliopolae ibidem 1650". Il secondo frontespizio, che riporta la datazione 1649, presenta una marca tipografica in ovale con l'impresa editoriale ed è interessato da due piccole mende cartacee d'epoca, probabilmente a rimuovere antica notazione di proprietà. Alcuni cartigli e capilettera incisi. Bruniture diffuse. Il volume, dopo la dedicatoria, si apre con alcune odi apologetiche in onore dell'Autore, opera di Johannes Barcehausen, Petrus de Spina, Ludovico von Hörnigs, Petrus Lotichius, Joannes Sebastian Blosius, Anton Boxbarterus, Johannes Tilemannus, Georg Scrhöder, Johann Guilielmus Hochstatt, Johannes Loofherus Florimontanus, Antonius Itterus, Balthasar Stutenius, Joannes Pfautz. Il testo, su due colonne, è diviso in due parti, ciascuna con numerazione autonoma: la prima (pg.516) comprende i primi tre Libri della "Pharmacopoeia Medico - Chymica" ("De Isagoge", "De Officina", "De Mineralogia"), la seconda parte contiene i rimanenti ("De Phytologia", "Classis de Animalibus perfectioribus"). L'indice, oltreché in latino, è apposto anche in tedesco in caratteri gotici. Nato in Westfalia, Iohann Schröders (Sazurffeln, 1600 - 1664) dopo gli studi di medicina praticati a Rostock e a Copenhagen, divenne medico chirurgo nell'esercito svedese. Compì numerosi viaggi in Europa per poi stabilirsi a Francoforte sul Meno ove esercitò la professione medica. Compì approfonditi studi di farmacologia e di botanica, sia dal punto di vista storico che della ricerca. In particolare si dedicò alla ricerca dei rimedi in medicina, dividendoli in due tipi, alimentari e farmaceutici. "Dei primi fa una descrizione dettagliata nell?arte culinaria; distingue i secondi in medicamenti semplici e composti, tenendo conto della costituzione (odore, sapore, figura) della usurpazione (modo di somministrazione) e della signatura (modo di conoscerne le virtù). Prende in considerazione l?astrologia e la meteorologia prendendo spunti dai paracelsisti e galenisti. Particolare il metodo suggerito per raccogliere le erbe: ci fornisce tabelle, novene, orari per l?eradicazione e la conservazione; ricette e rimedi proposti sono a dir poco "fantasiosi" e ripropongono le antiche credenze popolari in materia di medicina" ( dal sito "abocamuseum"). A lui si ispirò in seguito il Boerhaave, ridimensionandone tuttavia l'influenza alchemica e astrologica. Il presente testo fu pubblicato in prima edizione nel 1641.

        LE OPERAZIONI DEL COMPASSO GEOMETRICO ET MILITARE DI GALILEO GALILEI NOBIL FIORENTINO. Lettor delle Matematiche nello Studio di Padova. Terza edizione.

      Per Paolo Frambotto 1649 Opera dedicata a Antonio Maria Orsato. Cm.21,6x16. Pg.(8), 80. Legatura in piena pergamena semirigida con titoli manoscritti al dorso. Al frontespizio marca calcografica raffigurante Minerva che tende il braccio destro verso un albero e con il sinistro sostiene uno scudo. Nella parte sinistra motto su nastro: "Pacis opus". Fuori testo la celebre carta raffigurante il compasso, in riproduzione non coeva. Cartigli e capilettera incisi. Svariate figure nel testo. "Il compasso proporzionale o di proporzione è stato un importante strumento utilizzato dalla fine del XVI secolo sino al XIX che può essere considerato «... il primo vero strumento di calcolo della storia dell' umanità, dall'apparenza semplice, e tuttavia in grado di eseguire operazioni matematiche e geometriche complesse» (Vergara Caffarelli). Galilei descrisse lo strumento, da lui progettato e fatto costruire intorno al 1597 dal suo operaio Marcantonio Mazzoleni, nell'opuscolo "Le operazioni del compasso geometrico et militare", pubblicato a Padova nel 1606 e dedicato a Cosimo II. Il compasso geometrico militare, come lo chiamò Galilei, permetteva di compiere in modo più rapido e semplice complesse operazioni matematiche e geometriche per usi civili e militari. Col suo compasso si misuravano distanze, altezze, profondità e pendenze; si calcolava la balistica dei tiri d'artiglieria; si poteva ridisegnare una mappa con una scala diversa; si calcolavano cambi di monete e interessi. Lo strumento, a metà tra il goniometro e il regolo calcolatore consiste di due righelli di uguale lunghezza uniti su un disco (nocella) come cerniera che ne permette l'apertura a compasso. Su i due righelli sono riportate sette scale proporzionali (aritmetiche, geometriche, stereometriche, tetragoniche, poligrafiche, scala dei metalli e linee aggiunte) e un arco di cerchio graduato munito di scala dei gradi, scala delle pendenze e quadrato delle ombre. Lo strumento si fondava teoreticamente sulla proporzionalità tra i lati omologhi di due triangoli dimostrata da Euclide" (da wikipedia).

      A Rouen: Chez Jean Viret...Francois Vaultier...Clement Malassis...Jacques Besogne, 1649. [52], 167, [1], 1-32, 169-488, [2], 491-863pp, [33].

Contemporary calf, recently rebacked with contrasting red morocco lettering-piece, gilt. Rubbed, with some surface loss. Two small ink/watercolour drawings, disguising marginal paper repairs to foot of Nn3 and head of Vv1 - the latter with slight loss to running title and just shaving the top of an engraved plate of instruments.

Hecter' and 'A Messire Char de Clermont Chevalier & docteur en Medecine', several ink stamps of the Royal College of Surgeons Ireland, to title and occasionally to text. Jacques Guillemeau (1550-1613), French physician, favoured student of Ambroise Pare, pioneering surgeon in the field of obstetrics, paediatrics and ophthalmology. It is fitting that the his collected surgical works, first published Paris, 1598, were published in the large, profusely illustrated folio format similar to those of Pare, whose works Guillemeau is largely responsible for popularizing by making it available to a wider scholarly audience by translating it into Latin (Paris, 1582).

      Joan Blaeu Amsterdam 1649 - Double-page, engraved, hand-coloured map, Latin text on verso. Dimensions: 410 by 510mm. (16 by 20 inches). With a dedictation to the city council of Dordrecht in cartouche in lower left corner. From Joan Blaeu's town book of the Netherlands, first published one year after the peace of Munster and the Spanish acknowledgement of the Dutch Republic. Blaeu planned his town book towards the end of the battle with Spain to consist of two volumes; one showing the towns of the Republic, the other showing towns belonging to Spain. In the second edition, due to a large scale re-conquest of land by the Republic, Blaeu had to transfer several towns to the volume showing towns of the Republic and as a consequence this volume became larger than the other; thus the composition of the atlas became linked to the struggle for independence of the Republic.

This composite work, a variorum edition, published in 1649 by Johannes de Laet, a professor at the University of Leyden and director of the Dutch East India Company (1581-1649), combines Vitruvius' De architectura with various texts more or less linked to Vitruvius and to architecture. After the dedication to Queen Christina of Sweden, de Laet printed his own Latin translation of the Henry Wotton?s 1624 edition of Elements of Architecture. He continued with the edition of Vitruvius published in the enlarged version of 1552 by Jean de Tournes with the Annotationes by Guillaume Philandrier which makes up the majority of the abundant commentary of footnotes. Following that is Georg Bauer?s (Agricola) The Epitome from the treatise on weights (De mensuris et ponderibus Romanorum atque Graecorum), written by the same Philandrier. He also relied and used Barbaro's commentary, the Plinianae exercitationes in Caii Julii Solini Polyhistoria (1629) by Claude Saumaise, and the works of the Hellenist and historian Gerardus Joannes Vossius. The book continues with unpublished notes by the mathematician and music historian Marcus Meibom on Vitruvius and his music theory, with an essay, also unpublished, by the mathematician Nicolaus Goldmann on the Ionic volute and with the Greek and Latin indices on De architectura and the Annotationes taken from Philandrier. After that is the 1612 publication, De verborum Vitruvianorum significatione and the Scamilli impares Vitruviani by Bernardino Baldi. At the end there is a passage from chapter 8 of Scamozzi's book VI (L'idea della architettura universale, 1615). And also, added to all these texts presented as the "must read list" of Vitruvian and architectural literature, are Alberti's De pictura, extracts of the De sculptura by Pomponius Gauricus, the commentary by Louis de Montjosieu on the sculpture and painting of the Ancients (Commentarius de sculptura, caelatura, scalptura, et pictura antiquorum, 1602), and finally a brief commentary by Claude Saumaise on two passages by Solin and a general index. Though de Laet, takes up the text of the 1552 edition of De architectura, and split up the books and chapters followed by Philandrier's Annotationes in their enlarged version, de Laet, nevertheless, didn't hesitate to delete a good number of Philandrier's illustrations in his commentary. On the other hand he reproduced with all its woodcuts the Digression on the orders (Digressio utilissima.), consecrating it in that way as a Vitruvian reference par excellence. De Laet?s landmark work on Vitruvius, was daunting and slightly haphazard, as noted by Brunet, but the amount of scholarship he produced in one edition, is a measure of the effects of Vitruvius on the Enlightment and Renaissance.

        Autographed Document Signed "Charles R" as King

      1649. unbound. 2 pages (front and back), 9 x 6.75 inches, February 10, 1649. Signed as the 19-year-old illegal and contested King of Scotland, ordering payment of 200 pounds sterling to Messrs. Thomas Freeman and Thomas Pitcairn, to be drawn on Sir Edward Walker, Royal Receiver General. On the back is a receipt for the proceeds, signed by Freeman and Pitcairn, February 11, 1649. NOTE: It is quite possible that this offering might be the earliest known document signed by Charles II as King. The English calendar was still not reformed. The month date was 10 days behind the continent, and the year began on March 25th. By the European calendar, Charles I died on February 9, 1649, just one day prior to the date of this document. To add confusion, most modern historians accept the year in this period as starting on January 1st (which was celebrated as New Year); thus the generally used date of Charles 1st's execution is January 30, 1649. In this case, one would make the argument that Charles II signed this document as King five days after the English Parliament denied his ascension to the throne, but it is almost impossible to determine which calendar he used. Accompanied by the document is a magnificent 17th-century engraved copper plate portrait of Charles II at the age of 19 in 1649 by Antonio Van Dyke, proclaiming him "King of Britain, France and Hibernia," 10 x 7.25 inches, mounted to a backing sheet measuring 11 x 8 inches. The document is gently browned on the upper corners and has some light spotting, but is still in very good(+) condition. Monarch of the three kingdoms of England, Scotland, and Ireland. His father, King Charles I, was executed at Whitehall on January 30, 1649, at the climax of the the English Civil War. Although the Parliament of Scotland proclaimed Charles II King of Great Britain and Ireland in Edinburgh on February 5, 1649, the English Parliament instead passed a statute that made any such proclamation unlawful, and the country became a de facto republic, led by Oliver Cromwell. Cromwell defeated Charles II at the Battle of Worcester on September 3, 1651, and Charles fled to mainland Europe, spending the next nine years in exile. Upon the death of Cromwell in 1658, the monarchy was restored and Charles was invited to return to Britain.
