Collated and found complete. [6], 30, [2], 272, [28], 164, 69, [3]p : frontis, illustrations. Clean, unmarked pages. BMC XXVI, 301.818; Willems 1097; Fowler 417; Berlin Katalog 1817, Brunet V, 1328. 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 The book continues with unpublished notes by the mathematician and music historian Marcus Meibom on Vitruvius and his music theory, with an essay, also unpublished, by the mathematician Nicolaus Goldmann on the Ionic volute and with the Greek and Latin indices on De architectura and the Annotationes taken from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.

        Les passions de l'ame

      Amsterdam: Elzevier, 1649. <p>Mind-Body Duality</p><p>Descartes, René (1596-1650). Les passions de l&#146;âme. 8vo. [48], 286, [2, blank]pp. Paris: Henry le Gras, 1649. 157 x 92 mm. Vellum ca. 1649, spine a bit darkened. Fine copy, preserved in a cloth drop-back box.</p><p>First Edition, Paris Issue. Descartes&#146; final work, which drew heavily on the then-unpublished Traité de l&#146;homme, contains the application of his mechanistic physiology to the relationship between mind and body. Descartes made an essential distinction between the soul as the divinely-endowed seat of consciousness, will and rational thought, and the body as a machine or automaton subject to the laws of physics, and only indirectly controlled by the soul through the nerves. Using this dualistic model, he was able to make the important distinction between voluntary and involuntary actions. Descartes located the soul in the pineal gland, which thus served as the locus for interaction between soul and body; he had defined the pineal gland&#146;s function in the Traité, but Les passions de l&#146;âme contains his first published account of it. The work also contains the first use of the word &#147;reflex&#148; in connection with the action of the nervous system. &#147;Cartesian dualism . . . gave great impetus to the development of psychology in its own right&#148; (Hunter & Macalpine, p. 133).</p><p>The first edition of Les passions de l&#146;âme was divided between Louis Elzevier in Amsterdam and Henry le Gras in Paris. There is no priority between the two versions; both are equally rare. Garrison-Morton 4965. Guibert, Bibliographie des oeuvres de René Descartes, pp. 150-151. Norman 626. </p>

Born in Basel, Switzerland, he spent most of his life in Frankfurt where he met and married Theodore de Bry's daughter. The map is also found in later editions. Ref.

        Italia Gallica - sive - Gallia Cisalpina

      Jansson Insularum 1649-60 - Mappa del ?600 stampata su carta greve con ampio margine foglio cm. 57,5 x 67,5 ca. ? disegno cm. 34,7 x 46 ca. Incisione in rame (c. 1649-60), raffigurante l?Italia Gallica o Gallia Cisalpina, intitolata in cartiglio in alto a sinistra: Italia Gallica - sive - Gallia Cisalpina - ex conatibus Geographicis - Abrah. Ortelij. La mappa mostra l?Italia del nord e le regioni adiacenti, e si estende da Venezia sull?Adriatico, a Pisa e Nizza sul Mediterraneo, dal Lago Lemano ad ovest alle Alpi a nord. Interessanti i grandi laghi dell?Italia settentrionale, Verbano (Lago Maggiore), Lario (Lago di Como), Sebino (Lago d?Iseo) e Benaco (Lago di Garda), raffigurati, secondo le conoscenze cartografiche dell?epoca, in modo assai approssimativo. Le località sono mostrate con piccoli disegni convenzionali e con i profili dei monti. In cartiglio, vicino al titolo, l?elenco delle località di incerta collocazione. In basso a sinistra, gabbia ornata, con i nomi dei popoli di collocazione incerta. Questa mappa, firmata dal cartografo fiammingo di Anversa Abramo Ortelio (1527-1598), conosciuto con il nome latinizzato di Ortelius, fu da questi redatta in base a conoscenze tratte da Livio, Ausonio, Tacito, Catone, Plinio, Polibio e Cassiodoro. Fu pubblicata da Johannes Jansson. Tratta da: ?Novus Atlas??, pubblicato ad Amsterdam da Johannes Jansson, nella seconda metà del 17° secolo. Johannes Jansson (1588-1664) fu un editore, un incisore e un cartografo olandese. Conosciuto anche come Joannes Janssonii (con qusto nome latinizzato firmava le sue carte geografiche), nel 1617 pubblicò una nuova edizione della ?Geografia? di Tolomeo e nel 1633 un ?Atlante? del Mercatore; dal 1638 iniziò la pubblicazione di un ?Atlas Novus?, al quale seguì, nel 1647, una seconda edizione in sei volumi. Nel 1657 pubblicò, ad Amsterdam, il ?Novus Atlas, sive Theatrum orbis terrarum: in quo tabulae & descriptiones omnium regionum totius Universi accuratissime exhibentur. In sex tomos distinctus?, considerato il primo atlante moderno del mondo e ripubblicato più volte negli anni successivi. Lingua: |

        The World and Continents - Five Maps]

      Jan Jansson, Amsterdam 1649 - An excellent set of the World and Continents, by Hondius and Jansson, two of the Netherlands' greatest cartographers This handsome set of the World and Continents comes from the 1649 German edition of Jan Jansson and Henricus Hondius' Novus Atlas, Das Ist: Welt-Beschreibung mit allerhand schönen newen auszführ lichen Taffeln Inhaltende Die Königreiche und Länder des gantzen Erdtreichs . This monumental work was the inheritor of the legacy of the great atlas first published in 1595 by Rumold Mercator, and later re-issued and revised by Jodocus Hondius and family. In 1630, Willem Blaeu dramatically entered the land atlas market, compelling Jansson and Hondius to mount this powerful reprise. The World map, Nova Totius Terrarum Orbis Geographica ac Hydrographica Tabula, originally dates from 1630, and is present here in the second state, dated '1641', but printed in 1649 using the same plate. It is richly decorated in Baroque style, and is most memorable for the four portraits that adorn it: Julius Caesar and Claudius Ptolemy, at the top; and Gerard Mercator and Jodocus Hondius Sr., at the bottom. Also featured are the four elements of Classical science, illustrated in accordance with Greek and Roman mythology. At the bottom of the composition, between the two hemispheres, are personifications of the four continents. Europe is shown as an enthroned queen with a scepter and a book, symbolising power and knowledge. Alluding to the colonial aspirations of the European powers, Europe accepts gifts offered in outstretched hands by Native Americans, Africans and Asians. In the map, California is shown as an island, a fairly recent innovation, curiously not depicted on the accompanying map of the Americas. The map of Europe, Europa Exactissime Descripta , originally dated 1631, is present here in the second state. Many details regarding the configuration and political boundaries derive from Mercator's map of Europe. The dedication to Louis XIII of France alludes to the alliance forged between France and the United Provinces in 1630, a pact engineered by Cardinal Richelieu which helped guarantee Holland's independence from Spain. (Spain's continued effort to re-invest Holland was one of the ongoing causes of the Thirty Years' War). Africae nova Tabula, first printed in 1631, and present here in the third state, is a fascinating map that reveals the extent to which the interior of the continent largely remained an enigma to Europeans, with the ancient myth that the Nile was fed by two large lakes taking precedence. The coasts, portrayed with relative accuracy, were what really interested the Dutch, who by virtue of their recent seizure of the fortress of Elmina on the Gold Coast had become major protagonists in the African slave trade. The map is embellished with numerous African animals, including ostriches, crocodiles, lions and a griffin. The sea is inhabited by ships, flying fish, sea monsters and the god Neptune. The map of Asia, Asia recens summa cura delineata , was originally printed in 1631, and is present here in the second state, distinguished from the former by the addition of 'Janssonius' as the named publisher. It is dedicated to Eilhard Lubbin, a cartographer and mathematician of Rostock. The image of the Far East is significantly improved from Mercator's example, reflecting information derived from Dutch traders and Jesuit priests. America noviter delineata was first issued by Jodocus Hondius Jr. in 1618, and is present here in the fourth state. Geographically, the map predates the 'California as an Island' phenomenon, and does not include LeMaire's discovery of Cape Horn. The map is elegantly embellished with merchant ships and sea monsters.

      Joan Blaeu Amsterdam 1649 - Double-page, engraved, hand-coloured map, Latin text on verso. Dimensions: 410 × 520mm. (16 × 20.5 inches). Beautiful birds-eye view of Veere 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.
