        Le operazioni del compasso geometrico et militare. Terza edizione.

      Padua, Paolo Frambotti, 1649 - 4to (235 x 172 mm), pp [viii] 80, with large folding engraved plate and several geometrical diagrams in text; a fine, crisp, unpressed, and uncut copy in contemporary carta rustica. £8500A superlative copy of the scarce third edition of Le Operazioni del Compasso Geometrico, containing an enlarged illustration of Galileo's sector for measuring and swiftly computing distances and mathematical problems. The original edition, published in 1606 and Galileo's first printed book of significance, did not contain an illustration of his 'proportional compass', probably because of the likelihood that it would be pirated.About 1596 Galileo invented a remarkably useful instrument, the geometrical and military compass. The device, a sort of primitive analogue computer, bears nine sets of lines or scales for calculating cube roots, square roots, interest rates, circle squaring, etc. Its object was to greatly reduce computations in the measurement of distance, as well as to extract roots and perform other mathematical functions 'on the fly'. It required three fundamental operations: setting the separation of the arms; taking the distance from the pivot to a point along one of its scales; and taking the crosswise distance between a point and the corresponding point on the other arm.Galileo envisaged his instrument as of use in both civil surveying and military fortification, and it was deliberately published in the Tuscan vernacular for the benefit of both audiences. The sector was particularly useful in 'measurement by sight' applications (described on pp 62-80), allowing the user to compute heights and distances on the same instrument he used to sight them with. 'One of the immediate consequences was that topographical surveying and mapping of terrain became possible for anyone interested, no longer requiring trained specialists.' (Drake, p. 10)The instrument proved to be much in demand, and the inventor established a workshop in his own house at Padova for its manufacture. As is well documented, the "compass" was copied and plagiarized by others, notably one Baldassare Capra, and in 1606 Galileo published Le Operazioni del Compasso to vindicate his claim to the invention by describing its construction and use. This was his first significant work to appear in print and is very rare. Only 60 copies of this first edition were printed and probably a dozen or so have survived.It should be noted that Galileo's 'compass', now called the sector, has been manufactured from Galileo's day right up to the present time. No previously known device had accomplished anything quite like it, although mechanical aids to calculation had appeared earlier in various forms. Something of the importance to society of such an invention as Galileo's, noted Stillman Drake, can be grasped from the modern introduction of the pocket electronic computer. It completely revolutionized the way people, from princes to land surveyors, calculated complex mathematical problems without pencil and paper and, in so doing, democratized practical mathematics.Riccardi's editions of 1619 and 1641 would appear to be ghosts; I cannot find any other record of them. Cinti states that the plate mark in the 1640 second edition, the first appearance of the illustration, measured 119 x 345 cm to the plate mark, but I can find no evidence of this. It is probably a setting error, because the true dimensions should be 228/9 x 340 mm according to copies I have checked. The plate mark in the 1649 edition measures ca 25 x 36.3 cm so the two are clearly different, unless the original plate had been cut. Also Cinti mentions a "n.1" engraved in the margin, but the plate in this copy is not numbered. The next stag Carli and Favaro 228; Cinti 122; Tomash and Williams G13; cf also Drake's translation with foreword and notes (Smithsonian Institution Press, 1978)

By the satirical journalist Marchamont Needham (1620-1678), and published, according to Thomason, on April 9th 1649, when Nedham had removed himself from London, and was probably staying with Dr. Peter Heylyn at Minster Lovel in Oxfordshire, following the publication of his royalist newspaper, Mercurius Pragmaticus> which the government had tried to suppress. (Richard Lownes, its printer, had already been imprisoned). In June 1649 Nedham himself was caught and committed to Newgate, but was released in the November on his 'engagement' to take the Parliamentary side.

        Il gioco del Ponte di Pisa (?Ecco su l'Arno la pisana gente in finto agone a guerreggiar del Ponte. E se in gioconda pugna ha l'armi pronte, ebbe già in campo ostil guerriera mente?).

      Roma, 1649. Incisione in rame all'acquaforte, b / n, cm 35,4 x 50,2 (il foglio). Anton Francesco Lucini (Firenze, 1610 ?" Firenze, dopo il 1661) fu disegnatore e incisore. Si formò nello stimolante ambiente artistico di Firenze e divenne allievo del già affermato Jacques Callot, che in quegli anni era in Toscana sotto la protezione di Cristina di Lorena; negli stessi anni frequentò e collaborò con il coetaneo, concittadino e amico Stefano Della Bella, di cui imita lo stile e il repertorio tematico. ?Il gioco del Ponte di Pisa?, fu pubblicato a Roma nel 1649 e realizzato dal Lucini proprio su disegno di Stefano Della Bella. Lucini è l'autore del monumentale ?Dell'Arcano del Mare? (pubblicato a Firenze nel 1646 e per la realizzazione del quale venne incaricato del cartografo inglese Robert Dudley che dal 1605 fu a Firenze al servizio, come consigliere navale, del Granducato di Toscana), il primo atlante marino che copriva tutto il mondo fino ad allora conosciuto. Buon esemplare fresco e nitido, ma rifilato ai margini del filetto della parte figurata e quindi mancante della battuta alla lastra.

        The Alcoran of Mahomet, Translated out of Arabique into French; by the Sieur Du Ryer, Lord of Malezair, and resident for the King of France, at Alexandria And newly Englished, for the satisfaction of all that desire to look into the Turkish vanities [QUR'AN]

      London. 1649., 1649. FIRST ENGLISH EDITION OF THE QUR'AN. Octavo. pp. xxi, 407 [14]. Includes also 'The Life and Death of Mahomet', pp. 395-407, and 'A Needfull Caveat or Admonition for them who desire to know what use may be made of, or if there be danger in reading the Alcoran', pp. 14, to rear of book. Small portions of page edges missing to pp. 151; 173; 259 and 385. p. 277 miss-printed as p. 282. Otherwise complete, undamaged and clean. In original brown calf boards, with recently replaced spine. Raised bands with gilt titles to red morocco label. All edges originally a deep red, now somewhat faded. Ross translated Du Ryer's French Qur'an, published in 1647 and itself only the third western translation, with a great deal of poetic license; perhaps to emphasise its theological errors. As Charles I's personal Chaplain Ross, who was born in Aberdeen, was based in Southampton and later the Isle of Wight, remaining there until his death.

        Lettre d'un Gentilhomme de la Cour, A un Seigneur qui est à l'Armée, touchant l'attentat commis aux Filles Dieu à Paris, En la personne de Madamoiselle [sic] de Sainte Croix, & toute la suite des procédures dont on a usé contre-elle.

      - Paris, Jean Henault, 1649. Petit in-4, demi-veau brun, titre doré en long (coif. usées, un mors fendillé, rel. XIXe), (4), 20 p. Rare édition originale de cet événement qui défraya la chronique du temps de la Fronde. Le document est daté de Paris, le 30 avril 1648 soit quelques jours après les événements qu'il relate et signé "L. le C.". Le permis d'imprimer est du 10 juin. La brochure porte en titre de départ: "L'Amant obstiné dans ses recherches et la Fille constante en ses refus". Le sieur de Charmoy qui voulait épouser une demoiselle de Sainte-Croix, fut éconduit par celle-ci malgré la promesse du père. Sur la demande de Charmoy, un procès fut renvoyé au Parlement de Paris, où, par arrêt, est ordonné que la fille sera mise au couvent des Filles-Dieu pour déclarer sa volonté. Charmoy, enragé, se résolut d'enlever la fille. "Accompagné de cinq hommes, il la tirent de sa chambre de force quoiqu'elle fut en chemise, lui font donner de la tête contre le plancher, cent coups de bâton, d'éperons et des coups sur les bras pour lui faire quitter prise, la traînent dans le jardin nue comme la main ( ), la tirent par les cheveux mais n'en peuvent venir à bout (.). On sonne le tocsin, la population accourt et l'enlèvement échoue" (cf. O. Lefèvre D'Ormesson, 'Journal', 1860, I, 470 sq.). Un jugement très sévère fut rendu par le Parlement contre les auteurs du rapt : amende honorable devant la porte du couvent des Filles-Dieu, supplice de la roue, leurs biens confisqués et leurs maisons rasées. Quant à Mademoiselle de Sainte-Croix, elle épousa, en 1654, un prétendant choisi. Dulaure relate d'affaire avec précision dans son 'Histoire de Paris', éd. de 1823, II, 401. Court de marge inférieure sans perte de texte. Moreau (‘Mazarinades’, II, n°1868) indique que "le seul exemplaire que j'ai vu est incomplet". [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        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).

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.

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".

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.
