GALILEI, Galileo
Paolo Frambotto, 1649. THIRD EDITION With a large folding engraved plate of the sector and numerous woodcut text diagrams. Early soft boards; a superb copy from the library of Felix and Frieda Pollak, with their bookplate. Preserved in a folding cloth box. Third edition of Galileo's valuable first published book. He here describes and explains the use of his invention, the geometric and military compass, or circle of proportion. The instrument, the first important device to perform arithmetical calculations by mechanical means, made it possible to calculate the ratios between linear dimensions of planar and solid bodies, and was specifically created to calculate trajectories and distances for military purposes. According to DSB, Galileo "transformed [the device] from a simple device of limited use to an elaborate calculating instrument of varied uses and of great practical utility by adding to it a number of supplementary scales. He . . . wrote a treatise on its use for engineers and military men." Pollak (1909-1987), an Austrian émigre, became an accomplished American poet and special collections curator at the University of Wisconsin.

SOMER, Jan.
Amsterdam, Joost Hartgers, 1649.4to. Modern boards. With woodcut vignette on title-page and 6 half-page engravings. 47 lvs.First edition published the same year. - Jan Somer (ca. 1560-1640) a Dutchman from the province of Zeeland claims that he started his voyage in 1590 and returned in the autumn of 1592. There are several inconsistencies in the text, however, which make a large part of his itinery doubtful. It is conceivable that Jan Somer never travelled at all, but is one of the many plagiarists of his time. Somer was widely read, however, and had the reputation of being a famous traveller who wrote excellent accounts of his extensive journeys (Koster, To Hellen's noble land, 13). Including accounts of Alexandria, Cairo, the Red Sea area and Turkey. The treatise on the Turcks is a translation of B. Georgiewitz's De Turcarum moribus epitome, 1544. - A fine copy.Tiele 1014; Cat. NHSM I, p.255-256.

Plate : 'Gravelinga Gallis Gravelines Dicta'. (Gravelines.) Copper engraved town view and groundplan from Blaeu's townbook of the southern Netherlands, first published in 1649. Blaeu composed his townbooks towards the end of the conflict with Spain and consequently the atlas became linked with the Dutch struggle for independence, proudly showing cities and stategic places. Gravelines was situated in the southern, Spanish, Netherlands and it was since long clear that it would not be reconquerred by the rebelious north, especially because such a reunion would not be supported by the majority of the southern population. However, in denial of this fact it was common practice to refer to the south as part of the nation and to refer to it as a symbol of nationa Copperplate engraving on verge type hand laid paper with watermark.

Table Generalle Des Longitudes et Latitudes des Villes plus recommees du Monde, dressee sur Meridien des Canaries.(Latitudes & Longitudes of World Cities/ early thematic cartography/ geometric coordinates). Issued Paris, 1649 by Jean Boisseau. Fascinating and very scarce mid-17th century engraved longitude chart.*Utterly fascinating when examined in detail. The diagram is composed of six concentric circles using the Canaray Islands as the Prime meridien (as opposed to Greenwich), each representing various nation or global regions such as the Americas, Indies, Poland, Persia, Arabia, Asia Minor and Africa. Within each of these are long circular lists of specific important world cities or towns, each precisely corresponding to the degree. Hundreds of global cities and towns are named, a very interesting conceptual diagram. Pre-dates by more than 100 years the ability of sailing ships being able to determine their longitude while sailing at sea. Among the earliest and possibly scarcest of thematic maps relating to this scientific topic then of keen popular interest, not solved until the 1770's by John Harrison. Excellent early example of creative, visually unique scientific navigation and cartographic thematic cartography . Clean overall, couple minor expert paper repairs so well done they are almost invisible to the untrained eye. A very well preserved and nice looking example of this rare antique thematic cartographic navigational chart. Small square folio format. Sheet measures c. 17" x 14 3/4". Printed area measures c. 14" x 14 1/4". *The engraved plate shows clear signs o … [Click Below for Full Description]
