        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. " 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." ( 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 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.

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.

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.

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).

        Les Oeuvres De Chirurgie De Jacques Guillemeau, Chirurgien Ordinaire Du Roy et Jure a Paris. Avec Les Portraicts et Figures De Toutes Les Parties Du Corps Humain, & Des Instrumens Necessaires Au Chirurgien. Augmentees, et Mises En Un

      A Rouen: Chez Jean Viret...Francois Vaultier...Clement Malassis...Jacques Besogne, 1649. [52], 167, [1], 1-32, 169-488, [2], 491-863pp, [33]. With 33 full-page engravings within the pagination, and numerous woodcut diagrams to text. B4 bound before B3, G4 before G4, missigned G3. Yy4 before Yy3. 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. Two ink inscriptions to title 'Ex Libris Ed. 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). Wellcome III, p. 179.. Folio.

      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.

        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.
