        RELIQUIAE SACRAE CAROLINAE. Or THE WORKS OF THAT GREAT MONARCH AND GLORIOUS MARTYR KING CHARLES THE I.

      Collected together, and digested in order, according to their severall subjects, civil and sacred. Contains in the first part Concerning matters civil, His Majesty's Speeches, His Majesty's Messages for Peace, Letters etc, and in the second part Concerning matters sacred, the Eikon Basilike with separate title page printed red and black dated 1649 and Papers about Church Government and His Majesty's Prayers plus things relating to his death. The title page of the Eikon Basilike reads: THE PORUTRAICTURE (sic) OF HIS SACRED MAJESTIE IN HIS SOLITUDES AND SUFFERINGS. Together with His Majesties Praiers delivered to Doctor Juxon immediately before his death. Also His Majesties reasons, against the pretended jurisdiction of the High Court of Justice, which he intended to deliver in writing on Monday January 22, 1648. Small 8vo, 170 x 110 mm, 6¾ x 4¼ inches, frontispiece of the King with globe, folding frontispiece to Eikon Basilike showing King kneeling with crown of thorns in his right hand both engraved by William Marshall, oval portrait of the Prince of Wales at page 213, pages: [16], 1 - 276, [4], 1 - 247, 149 - 324 (the leap in pagination to page 149 for the Church Papers is recorded in the Contents section at the beginning of the book), LACKING THE EXPLANATION OF THE FRONTISPIECE AS OFTEN which should precede the folding frontispiece in the Eikon Basilike, a few mispaginations but text collated and guaranteed complete, bound in full antique leather, blind rules to covers, rebacked to style with raised bands and small gilt lozenge in 4 compartments, gilt lettered red morocco label. Covers worn with some pitting to surface, small repairs to lower corners, top corners slightly worn, pastedowns discoloured by glue, very faint browning to lower edge of frontispiece and general title page, offset from the front pastedown, sdmall repair to lower corner of front endpaper, another small lower corner torn off, 1 very small chip to an upper margin, 1 fore - edge margin slightly chipped due to paper flaw. Text block tight and firm. A very good clean copy complete with all required illustrations, but lacking Explanation as noted See Madan, A New Bibliography of the Eikon Basilike, page 72 No. 62 with an illustration of our Eikon Basilike title page on page 73. Madan No. 62 collates almost as our copy except that there are 17 pages after the Eikon and before the Church Papers which are not called for in our Contents list. The title page of the Eikon has the same misprint 'Porutraicture' but differs very slightly from ours: it has red decoration to the corners and 'Eikon Basilike' and 'Majesties' are printed lower than they are in our copy. According to Madan the Explanation of the Frontispiece is often lacking from this edition. Madan examines the question of the authorship of the Eikon Basilike in detail and comes to the conclusion that both Charles I and John Gauden were involved, Charles in providing the original manuscript material, Gauden for writing it up and making a book of it (see Madan, Appendix 1, pages 126 - 133).

        RELATION DE L'INQUISITION DE GOA. Enrichi de beacoup de Figures en Taille douces. .

      Testo francese. Cm.14,3x8,3. Pg.(4), 219, (15). Legatura coeva in piena pelle consunta, con dorso a cinque nervature. Taglispruzzati. Leggera mancanza al capitello inferiore. Opera adorna da sette tavole fuori testo, alcune in grande formato, raffiguranti con dovizia di dettagli i particolari del processo inquisitorio. Lievi abrasioni lungo le piegature delle tavole, strappetti ai margini. Ex libris nobiliare all'antiporta. Una delle prime rare edizioni di un importante saggio in cui il medico francese Charles Dellon (1649 circa - 1709 circa), originario dell'Agde, racconta degli esiti inattesi di un suo viaggio in India nel XVII secolo. Accusato nel 1674 di blasfemia dal Governatore di Daman, fu sottoposto al giudizio del Tribunale dell'Inquisizione, imprigionato e imbarcato su una galera portoghese per cinque anni, per poi venire liberato dopo il processo tenuto davanti al Santo Uffizio di Lisbona. Assai interessanti le note di viaggio, con dettagliati riferimenti alle varie località toccate, quali Capo Verde, Capo di Buona Speranza, Ceylon, Mozambico, Madagascar, etc. L'Opera fu messa all'Indice il 29 maggio 1690, e ad essa si ispirò parzialmente Voltaire nel suo "Candido".

        Macadonien, Epirus und Achaia. "Macedonia, Epirus and Achaia

      Greece: Amsterdam Janssonius, Jan 1649. Copper engraved map of Macedonia, Epirus & Achaia by Mercator, published by Janssonius in his "Novus Atlas, Das ist: Welt-Beschreibung... " Vol 3. Original old colour; German text to verso. The map first appears in the second part of Mercator's Atlas in 1589 [Me11]. Decorative title cartouche surrounded by putti; ships to sea. Good dark impression; toned as so often with Janssonius maps, with some show through of text from verso; splits at upper and lower centre fold [ each approx 60-70mm repaired with tape to verso]; margins trimmed, as can be seen on the verso just touching some words. Gerard Mercator (1512-1594) Originally a student of philosophy came under the influence of Gemma Frisius, the founder of the Belgian school of Geography, and became interested in mathematics - both in the theory and the practical application. With these skills he soon became an expert in land surveying and cartography, as well as a skilled engraver. His first maps were published in 1537 (Palestine), and 1538 (a map of the world), although his main occupation at this time was globe-making. He later moved to Duisburg, in Germany, where he produced his outstanding wall maps of Europe and of Britain. In 1569 he published his masterpiece, the twenty-one-sheet map of the world, constructed on what is now known as Mercator's projection. It was during this period, while teaching cosmography at Duisburg, that Mercator realised the pressing need for a modern collection of maps to supersede the Ptolemaic atlases. This project was gradually expanded to be a complete description of the Universe, both heaven and earth, with other volumes on the Creation, Genealogy and History and a Chronology. The description of the earth was to be in two parts, a modern geography and a Ptolemaic atlas, a massive and over-ambitious project. In fact, only the Chronology and the Ptolemaic Geographia were completed in his lifetime, and it was left to his son, Rumold, to complete and publish the world atlas in 1595. Entitled Atlas, sive Cosmographicae Meditationes de Fabrica Mundi, this was the first time the name "Atlas" was applied to a bound collection of maps, and, like Mercator's projection, has remained in everyday use to this day. After Rumold's death in 1599, the plates for the atlas were published by Gerard Jr. Following his death in 1604, the printing stock was bought at auction by Jodocus Hondius, and re-issued well into the seventeenth century. 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).

        Les passions de l'ame.

      . Amsterdam, Louys Elzevier, 1649. 8vo. [ii], [xliii], 286 pp. Fine full red morocco with five raised bands; spine with gilt title, marbled end-papers, all edges gilt, elaborately gilt blind-tooled inner dentelles.l The last philosophical work of Rene Descartes [here: Des Cartes] published during his lifetime. The word "reflex", was first introduced in this work in the modern sense, i.e. "...in connection with the action of the nervous system." (Hunter & Macalpine) . "In the treatise Passions of the Soul ... completed in 1649 and dedicated to Princess Elisabeth of Bohemia, the author contributes to a long tradition of theorizing "the passions". Now called emotions, they have been "subject of debate among natural philosophers since the time of Plato. Notable precursors to Descartes who articulated their own theories of the passions include St. Augustine, St. Thomas Aquinas and Thomas Hobbes" (Wikipedia). Descartes' treatise is divided into three parts: The first part, "Des passions en general: et par occasion de toute la nature de l'homme" analyzes the relationship between soul and body; in the second part "Du nombre & l'ordre des passions, & l'explication des six primitives", Descartes analyzes the passions from within, giving us a definition of each of them; in the third part "Des passions particulieres", Descartes examines the different passions. This is preceded by a discourse in letters, dated from 6 November 1648 to 14 August 1649, between Descartes, then living in Egmond (Holland), and Princess Elisabeth of Bohemia. "Les passions is Descartes' most important contribution to psychology proper. In addition to an analysis of primary emotions, it contains Descartes' most extensive account of causal mind/body interactionism and of the localization of the soul's contact with the body in the pineal gland." (http://serendip.brynmawr.edu/Mind/Descartes.html). The work was to be published by Henry le Gras in Paris, but printed by Elzevier in Amsterdam. Most copies were shipped to France, but apparently a (much) smaller number was retained by Descartes. These copies have an Elzevier title page without the mention of Henry le Gras, Paris. It is not known how many copies remained in Amsterdam, but it is interesting to note that the Amsterdam version, arguably the real first edition (Willems: "Edition originale de cet ouvrage celebre, imprimee par Louis Elzevier"), is much rarer; the Norman sale contained both (Norman 625 and 626) and although the estimate was identical, the Amsterdam edition went for almost twice as much as the Paris version. Willems: "L'edition de 1649 est assez rare, surtout avec l'adresse primitive". A mint copy in a exceedingly fine binding by the famous French binder, George Trautz-Bauzonnet (1808-1879). Provenance: on the front pastedown the tiny elegant gilt monogram "SE" or "ES" [perhaps the French philosopher Emile Saisset (1814-1863), writer of "Precurseurs et disciples de Descartes" (1862)]. Garrison-Morton, 4965; Hunter and McAlpine, pp. 133-134; Norman, 625..

        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.

      Ex Officinâ Ioannis Maire, Lugduni Batavorum (Leiden) 1649 - With numerous illustrations of diagrams in the text. First separate and first Latin edition of "La Géometrie" (second printing overall). Title page in red and black, with printer's device. In 18th century blind-stamped leather, spine with four raised bands. Spine lettered in ink. (4°); (12), 336, (2), [2 blank] p. Descartes' Geometria, with brief notes by de Beaune (1601-1652; French mathematician) and commentary by van Schooten. Frans van Schooten (1615-1660) was introduced to Descartes in 1632. Their first cooperation is dated a few years later when Descartes asked van Schooten to make the illustrations for "La Géométrie" (1637), the first work to propose the idea of uniting algebra and geometry into a single subject which invented an algebraic geometry called analytic geometry. Van Schooten was one of the earliest and most important people to promote the Cartesian geometry. [Tchemetzine IV, 305., Wolf 196., Honeyman 858.] With: Descartes, René Musicae Compendium. Trajecti ad Rhenum (Utrecht), 1650. Gisberti à Zijll, & Theodori ab Ackersdijck. (4°); 58, [2 blank] p. First edition of Descartes' only work on music. Printer's device on title page, with numerous woodcut illustrations of diagrams, figures and sheet music. Descartes wrote this study on music in 1618 but it was first published only after a year of his death. During his service in the army Descartes met Isaak Beeckman (1588-1637) the Dutch philosopher and scientist who introduced him into problems in mechanics and acoustics. The result of their meeting was this eassay "Musicae Compendium", a treatise on music and a study in methodology. The German music theorist Hugo Riemann declared this work to be "among the ablest musical writings of its time". [MGG III, 209.] With: Descartes, René Epistola Renati Des Cartes ad celeberrimum Virum D. Gisbertum Voetium in qua examinatur duo libri, nuper pro Voetio Ultajecti simul editi, unus Confraternitate Mariana, alter de Philosophia Cartesianâ. (Amstelodami, 1650. Apud Ludovicum Elzevirium.)

Tertia editio prioribus auctior & emendatior (.)". (In this edition this epistle published with a special half-title and separate paging.) Gisbertus Voetius (Gijsbert Voet, 1568-1676) was a Dutch Calvinist theologian. In 1642 while serving as rector of University of Utrecht persuaded the university's academic senate to issue a formal condemnation of the Cartesian philosophy. Descartes responded to the offense with this epistle. Small traces of worming on the lower margin of the first five leaves. Slight damages on spine, otherwise in fine condition.

        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).

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).

        Dordrecht.

      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.
