The Historia describes about 5,000 plants in a meticulous manner, the Historia plantarum first appeared in 1650 after 31 years in preparation. Bauhin, a Swiss botanist and physician, endeavored to describe not only the organs and properties of the plants herein, but their ecology as well. A student of Leonhart Fuchs at Tübingen, Bauhin was born into a strong family tradition in botany: his father Jean was the son of Jean Bauhin the Elder, a native of Amiens whose conversion to Protestantism exposed him to religious persecution. After he fled to Switzerland, the younger Bauhin fathered Jean and his equally renowned brother Gaspar and became the progenitor of six generations of botanists, extending over two hundred years in an unbroken succession of medical men. The Historia resulted from Bauhin's travels in the Swiss Alps, first accompanied by Gesner, and later on his own. Originally undertaking the work with d'Aléchamps, Bauhin's religion prompted the dissolution of their relationship and Bauhin's obligation to quit France. He became professor of rhetoric at Basel before becoming physician to Duke Frederick of Wurttenburg. These circumstances contributed to the long delay in publishing the work from its preliminary sketch in 1619. It was finished finally by his son-in-law Jean-Henri Cherler. Very Good.

        Al rey nuestra Señor, por la Provincia de la Compañía de Iesus de la Nueva España. En satisfación de un libro de el visitador obispo D. Juan de Palafox y Mendoza.

      No publisher/printer, 1650. The legendary feud between Bishop Juan de Palafox y Mendoza and the Society of Jesus was acrimonious, lengthy, and rich in legal filings. The main point of contention between the opposing parties was the failure of the Society to submit to the authority of the bishops and archbishop of Mexico, and this had a subchapter concerning the Jesuits' refusal to tithe to the ecclesiastical authorities. The present filing by the Society via its lawyer is a reply to Father Palafox's Al excelentissimo señor Don Garcia de Avellaneda i Haro conde de Castrillo . . . presidente en el Real y supremo [Consejo] de las Indias; el dean i cabildo de la Santa Iglesia de la Puebla de los Angeles, published 1646? (see: Medina, BHA, 6946). => Sabin characterizes the Society's reply as "rabid." There are two editions of this work: The other has only 131 leaves and contains a typographical error on the title-page ("lirro" for "libro"). In this edition the "Apendiz al Memorial. Aduertencias a quien lo huuiere leido," pp. 242-78, is by Juan Antonio Jarque. The place of printing has long been a matter of conjecture because of the paucity of studies of typography and typographic norms in Mexico and Puebla in the 17th century. We admit to no scholarship on the topic of typefaces but do have extensive experience with the paper used in Mexico and Puebla in the 1650s and the watermark in this edition is that of paper widely used there. Provenance: Bookseller's label of the Libreria de San Martin in Madrid.

        Oxforde

      Etching with hand colour 234 x 312 mm A scarce, detailed aerial city plan of Oxford with a prospect of Oxford from the east in the upper left corner, and numbered legend of landmarks in the lower left and centre. This map is after Wenceslaus Hollar's 1643 plan that was issued to mark the arrival of the Royal Court in Oxford during the English Civil War. As a direct copy of the Hollar map this impressionistic, rather than scientifically accurate, plan depicts the city at the halfway stage in the great period of development between the late 16th and mid 18th century. It is believed that this plan was published in Matthaus Merian's Theatrum Europaeum begun in 1633 and completed in 1738. Matthäus Merian the Elder (22 September 1593 - 19 June 1650) was a Swiss engraver born in Basel. Beginning his career in Zürich where he learned the art of copperplate engraving, Merian went on to study and work in various cities throughout France. In 1615, Merian returned to Basel. His return to Basel, however, was short lived, moving to Frankfurt the following year to work for the publisher Johann Theodor de Bry. Merian later married de Bry's daughter. He was also the father of Maria Sibylla Merian, one of the greatest natural history artists of the late 17th and early 18th centuries. Wenceslaus Hollar (1607-1677) left his native Prague in 1627. He spent several years travelling and working in Germany before his patron, the Earl of Arundel brought him to London in 1636. During the civil wars, Hollar fought on the Royalist side, after which he spent the years 1644-52 in Antwerp. Hollar's views of London form an important record of the city before the Great Fire of 1666. He was prolific and engraved a wide range of subjects, producing nearly 2,800 prints, numerous watercolours and many drawings.

Hij gaf dit werk gezamenlijk uit met Martin Zeiler (1589-1661) uit Ulm, die voor de tekst verantwoordelijk was. Het werk bevat ongeveer 2.000 afbeeldingen en plattegronden van steden, kloosters en kastelen en geldt als een van de belangrijkste werken op het gebied van geografische afbeeldingen.Merian was 1642 begonnen met de uitgave van een overzichtswerk met stadsgezichten, afbeeldingen van landschappen en kaarten waar hij reeds decennia lang tekeningen voor had verzameld.Tot 1688 werd de serie uitgebreid met verdere beschrijvingen van Europese gebieden tot uiteindelijk 30 banden met in totaal 92 kaarten en 2142 stadsgezichten en was daarmee een van de grootste uitgegeven boeken uit z?n tijd.De eerste delen graveert Matthäus Merian zelf en geeft deze ook zelf uit. Later wordt aan een groot aantal in die tijd beroemde graveurs het graveerwerk uitbesteed en nemen zijn zoons Matthäus de Jongere en Caspar het uitgeverswerk over.Prijs: ?1.250,-.

        Cibus esurientium hoc est aequitas et iustitia dei homines punientis quando in terris fames est. Authore Georgio Stengelio Soc. Iesu theologo

      Apud Georgium Haenlin, 1650. In 16, cm 10 x 16, pp. (16) + 233 + (23). Incisione all''acquaforte al frontespizio. Antico timbro di ex libris al frontespizio. Piccoli rinforzi marginali Piena pergamena settecentesca con qualche danno riparato. Tagli blu. Edizione originale molto rara interamente dedicata al concetto di fame e sete, al rapporto dell'uomo rispetto ai mezzi di sostentamento. Vengono paragonate tra loro diversi concetti di fame, di come la fame possa condurre anche alla salvezza dell'anima e di come sia la fame a spingere l'uomo a lavorare e che la fame faccia apprezzare meglio i cibi. Si considera anche che la non sempre la fame possa nuocere ma che neppure la sazieta' possa giovare. Vengono poi citati molti esempi di come la gola e l'ubriachezza possano condurre alla malvagita' e che fame e sete possano servire a punire i malvagi. Un capitolo e' dedicato ad analizzare se peggio sia la peste o la fame. Molti sono anche i riferimenti all'ubriachezza e al vino, a come porre rimedio alla 'intemperantiae' e 'Ebrietas quam sit iusta poena?'. L'opera, intessuta di riferimenti tratti dai padri della chiesa, scrittori della classicita' e' di notevole rarita'. Manca a tutti i repertori gastronomici consultati. Stengel fu un gesuita nativo di Augsberg, dottore e professore di teologia, rettore del collegio di Dilingen, mori' a ingolstadt nel 1651. Fu autore di moltissime opere di genere agiografico, teologico, polemistico ecc. LAT

        Miracles of Mary [Ethiopian illuminated religious manuscript]

      1650. (ILLUMINATED MANUSCRIPT). Ta'amra Maryam [The Miracles of Mary]. Ethiopia (Gondarine region), circa 1600. Thick folio (12-1/2 by 14-1/2 inches), contemporary blind-tooled morocco over wooden boards rebacked; 194 vellum leaves. Housed in custom clamshell box. $45,000.Beautiful and complete late 16th- or early 17th-century Ethiopian illuminated manuscript in Ge'ez on vellum of the Ta’amra Maryam (the Miracles of Mary), boasting three glorious full-page miniatures (depicting St. George, the Madonna and Christ Child, and the Holy Trinity), handsomely bound with contemporary blind-decorated morocco over wooden boards.The legendary tales that make up the Miracles of Mary flourished in medieval Europe. During the Crusades, the compilation of stories made its way to the Near East. In Ethiopia, translated from Arabic into Ge'ez as the Ta'amra Maryam, it absorbed local settings and history and quickly established itself as one of the Ethiopian Coptic Church's most important and popular devotional and liturgical texts. The mid-15th century Ethiopian emperor Zär'a Ya'eqob used Marian devotion to unite his subjects—he established over 30 feast days in her honor, for example—and likely encouraged the spread of the Ta'amera Maryam as ""part of a plan to combat paganism and the teaching of heretics such as the Stephanites, a group who refused to honor the Virgin"" (Joachim Persoon). Traditionally recounting anywhere from 30 to 300 miracles, a uniform version of 33 stories, together with Marian prayers and hymns, achieved canonical status by the mid-17th century, roughly contemporary with the production of this beautiful illuminated manuscript (which may date from as early as the late 16th century). The three bright and beautiful full-page miniatures in this manuscript reflect Western influence, but also exhibit the black lines and autumnal palette of colors associated with devotional art from Ethiopia's northwestern Gondarine region. The recto of leaf 2 presents Saint George—a patron saint of Ethiopia and popular subject of its religious art—riding a white horse and slaying the dragon with his cruciform lance to save a princess, while a group of soldiers (the foremost of whom wears a leopard skin) looks on. The verso of leaf 2 bears the image of the enthroned Madonna holding the Christ Child, attended by two angels; the Child holds a book in his left hand (perhaps the Old Testament he fulfills; perhaps the Gospel he brings) while pointing with three fingers of his right hand (to symbolize the Trinity) toward a burst of light, the Holy Spirit. A small piece of marginal ribbon marker remains attached to the upper corner of this leaf (and others throughout the volume), and the recto of the following leaf is spotted with candle wax, suggesting the Madonna and Child image was used as in worship as an icon. The image of the Trinity is on the verso of leaf 5: God the Father as a bearded and haloed man holding a small seed (perhaps alluding to ""Abraham's seed"" in Galatians 3.16) in his left hand, raising three fingers of his right hand in Trinitarian blessing. The symbols of the Four Evangelists—counter-clockwise from the top left corner: Matthew (winged man), Mark (lion), Luke (ox) and John (eagle)—surround the picture, which is covered (as presumably the other two were as well) with a brown gauze cloth, now stained and frayed, with a tiny hole. Richly decorated fabrics clothe all the figures in these miniatures. The text in this manuscript is written in three columns of 34 lines each. Leaves 3-5 contain the Prologue to the Miracles of Mary (the Mäs'hafä Ser'at). Text in Ge'ez, written in red and black. The name Diyosqiros appears at points in the manuscript, although the names of Gäbra Sellase and his wife Rahel have been inserted over it. From leaf 164 on, the name Wälda Libanos appears in some texts of blessing. Variations in the manuscript hand suggest the end of the manuscript was possibly written by another, contemporary scribe. Stab holes and guide lines visible. Old inkstamp to first leaf. Accompanied by a catalogue from a university exhibition in 2005-06 in which this manuscript was included and featured on the cover.Expected light soiling to vellum leaves. Rectangular portion (4 by 7 inches) of last leaf, a blank, excised. Occasional small holes, sometimes affecting letters; marginal holes occasionally repaired. Modest age-wear to rear board. An impressive and beautiful example of the Ethiopian illuminated manuscript tradition, with three vivid miniatures illustrating an important devotional text.

        Letter, signed ("Le Pr[ince]. et Duc de Marlborough"), to Adriaan van Borssele van der Hooge, Lord of Geldermalsen].Frankfurt am Main, 26 October 1707. 4to (23 x 18 cm). In French, written in brown ink on paper.

      - For Churchill: Hattendorf, "Churchill, John, first duke of Marlborough (1650-1722)", in: ODNB (online ed.); for Van Borssele: V.d. Aa I, pp. 296-297. Signed letter from John Churchill (1650-1722), first Duke of Marlborough, to Adriaan van Borsele van der Hooge (1658-1728), Lord of Geldermalsen, concerning the military situation during the War of the Spanish succession.John Churchill, a direct ancestor of the English Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill, started his military career in 1667. When the War of the Spanish Succession (1701-1713) began, King William appointed him plenipotentiary for the negotiations at the Hague and commander-in-chief of the army in Holland, a motley force of Dutch, English and Germans. In the autumn of 1707 he was making arrangements for the next campaign at The Hague and at Frankfurt, where he met the Elector of Hannover and the imperial minister, Count Wratislaw, mentioned in the present letter. By special order of the Queen, Churchill left Frankfurt to be in The Hague not earlier than 3 or 4 November to say good-bye to Geldermalsen, as he writes. On 7 November he returned to England to take part in the party struggles that had lasted through the summer.

        Official order to the magistrate of 's-Hertogenbosch].Lembeek (near Halle, south of Brussels), 18 August 1675. Folio (31.5×20.5 cm). Manuscript order in brown ink on paper, with a cut paper seal attached over sealing wax, with the blind-stamped coat of arms of William III. Signed by William and by his secretary Constantijn Huygens.

      - Original manuscript order signed and sealed at the army camp at Lembeek by William (Willem) III, Prince of Orange (1650-1702), Stadholder of the Dutch Republic and future King of England. It is also signed next to the seal by William's secretary Constantijn Huygens II (1638-1697), an important statesman in his own right, son of the poet and diplomat of the same name, and brother of the scientist Christian Huygens. Appointed Stadholder in 1672, William governed most provinces of the Dutch Republic to his death. In 1689 he was also crowned King William III of England and Ireland, and King William II of Scotland.During the summer campaign of 1675 William stayed several months with his army at Camp Lembeek, south of Brussels. King Louis XIV of France fought against the Dutch in Flanders and Brabant during the Franco-Dutch War, which began in 1672 and ended with the Peace of Nijmegen in 1678. In the spring and early summer of 1675 Louis had conquered Liège, Dinant, Hoey, Tongeren and other cities.In this document William orders the magistrate of 's-Hertogenbosch to hospitalize the sick (and presumably the wounded) of his army, sent to the city by "Wuester", quartermaster of the Dutch army. The document was formerly folded and has a contemporary note on what would have been the outside, "missive van sijn Hoogheyt". In very good condition.

        Totius Iutiæ Generalis Accurata delincatio.

      *** Partielt Danmarkskort : Dækker Jylland, Als, Fyn med omliggende øer samt Sjælland. Udgivet af Johannes Janssonius i Amsterdam ca. 1650. Kobberstik. 44 x 56 cm. Konturkoloreret. Bagsidetekst på hollandsk. Papiret er med vertikal midterfold som ved udgivelsen. Papirmål : 50 x 58 cm. - Bagsideteksten kan svagt skimtes gennem papiret. Kortet er blevet foldet inden koloreringen var helt tør, så der er flere steder en svag (spejlvendt) afsmitning. Marginen har et par små forstærkninger bagpå. Som helhed: Et pænt eksemplar med patina. I begyndelsen af det 17. århundrede var Amsterdam blevet en af de driftigste handelsbyer i Europa : Hjemsted for Hollandsk Ostindisk Kompagni og centrum for diamanthandel og bankvirksomhed. Samtidig blev Amsterdam den vigtigste by i Europa for fremstilling af og handel med landkort - først og fremmest fordi Mercators Atlas fra 1606 og frem blev udgivet i Amsterdam. Gerard Mercators (1512-1594) skelsættende Atlas udkom i tre dele i Duisburg i årene 1585-1595. I 1604 købte kartografen og forlæggeren Jodocus Hondius (1563-1612) kobberpladerne. I 1606 udsendte han i Amsterdam en ny, forøget udgave af Mercators Atlas; Hondius havde tilføjet ca. 40 af sine egne kort, hvorfor dette Atlas blev kendt som Mercator-Hondius Atlas. Sammen med sønnerne Jodocus II og Henricus lagde Hondius senior navn til de mange forøgede udgaver af Mercators Atlas - på flere sprog - der dominerede korthandelen de næste 20-30 år. I samme periode virkede en anden vigtig kartograf og kortforlægger : Willem Blaeu (1571-1638). Blaeu slog sig i 1599 ned i Amsterdam, og her grundlagde han et firma, der fremstillede jord- og himmelglober samt instrumenter til præcisionsmålinger. Inden længe begyndte han også at udsende søkort-atlas, og i en lang periode var Willem Blaeu den førende producent af søkort i Nederlandene. Omkring 1630 var konkurrencen imidlertid blevet så hård på dette feldt, at Willem Blaeu ville udvide repertoiret - han begyndte at arbejde på et atlas med landkort over hele den kendte verden. Det skulle indeholde de mest ajourførte kort, og som følge heraf gik det meget langsomt. I 1635 udsendte Willem Blaeu sammen med sønnen Johannes de to første bind af "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum" ("Atlas over hele Verden"). Bindene gjorde stor lykke, og de næste ca. 35 år udsendte Blaeu Familien mange forskellige atlasudgaver, hvoraf den største var i 11 bind - den drivende kraft var Johannes Blaeu (1596-1673), og han var en god del af tiden i hård konkurrence med Johannes Janssonius.Johannes Janssonius (1588-1664). Faderen var boghandler og forlægger i Arnhem, hvor han var virksom i årene 1597-1629. Blandt andet publicerede han sammen med Hondius Familien flere udgaver i miniatureformat af Gerard Mercators Atlas i årene 1607 til 1621.I 1612 giftede Johannes Janssonius sig med en datter af Jodocus Hondius, slog sig ned i Amsterdam og virkede her i mange år som selvstændig bogforlægger og kortudgiver. I perioden 1630 til 1638 var Janssonius i kompagniskab med svogeren Henricus Hondius, og fra 1633 begynder Janssonius' navn at optræde på titelbladet i Mercator-Hondius Atlas. Efter 1638 blev titlens "Atlas" ændret til "Atlas Novus", undertiden "Novus Atlas", i begge tilfælde at gengive med "Nyt Atlas" - en beretiget ændring, for så vidt som Janssonius stræbte efter at ajourføre sine kort. Ikke mange år senere blev det nu stærkt reviderede atlas udsendt under Janssonius' navn alene - Mercator og Hondius forsvandt fra titelbladet.

        Tabula anemographica seu pyxis nautical ventorum nomina sex linguis repraesentas.

      1650. Incisione in rame, dipinta a mano, mm 440x545. La più bella raffigurazione di rosa dei venti pubblicata a stampa, di notevole suggestione, divisa in 32 sezioni. I venti sono raffigurati come putti che soffiano. I nomi dei venti sono ripetuti in olandese, francese, italiano, latino, greco e spagnolo. Tratta dall'atlante marittimo di Janssonius, quinto tomo del suo Atals Major. Ottime condizioni, con minime tracce di sporco superficiale.

        Britannia prout divisa fuit temporibus ANGLO-SAXONUM, praefertim durante illorum HEPTARCHIA.

      1650. Incisione in rame, dipinta a mano, mm 420x520. Una fra le più decorative carte delle isole britanniche che raffigura il regno sassone in Britannia a cavallo fra il V e il VI secolo. La carta è praticamente una copia di quella di Blaeu pubblicata nel 1645, da cui si differenzia per l'aggiunta di navi e rose dei venti. Blaeu a sua volta aveva preso spunto dalla carta di Speed del 1611 ridisegnando in stile olandese del XVII secolo le vignette a carattere storico poste ai due lati della carta. La carta fu prima inserita nel volume del mondo antico (vol. VI) dell'Atlas Major di Janszoon e poi in "Accuratissimia Orbis Antiqui Delineatio" col testo di G. Hornius, stampato come volume singolo.Ottime condizioni, bella coloritura.Janssonius, genero di Jodocus Hondius e cognato di Henricus Hondius, figlio di Jodocus, collaborò alla pubblicazione di atlanti, dopo l'acquisizione delle lastre di Mercatore da parte di Jodocus e dal 1638 fu in effetti colui che guidò l'impresa editoriale, mentre Henricus Hondius lentamente abbandonava l'attività (dal 1646 il suo nome non apparirà più su alcun frontespizio); divenne così il grande avversario della famiglia Blaeu nel secolo d'oro della cartografia olandese. Georg Horn fu un erudito tedesco, autore di numerose opere storiche, fra cui anche del testo per l'atalnte storico di Janssonius. Copper engraving, mm 420x520, colored. Among the most decorative maps of the British Isles, showing the Saxon Kingdoms of Britain in the 5th to 6th CenturiesThe so called Heptarchy map is drawn after Joan Blaeu's one of 1645, which is based on 1611 Speed's map. It bears the same title of Blaeu's but vessels, rumb lines and compass roses has been added in the sea. The two sets of vignettes on either side of the map show historical scenes of the Saxon age, also copied from Speed's map but redone in dutch XVII century style. The map was first printed in the historical atlas (vol. VI of the Atlas Major) by Jansson and later in G. Hornius' "Accuratissimia Orbis Antiqui Delineatio". Johannes Janssonius (1588 - 1664) was born in Arnhem, Holland. He was the son of a printer and bookseller and in 1612 married the daughter of Hondius. In 1616 Jansson produced his first maps influenced by Blaeu.

About this time, Jansson's name also begins to appear on Hondius reissues of notable Mercator/Hondius atlases. Georg Horn (1620 - 1670) german historian and professor, composed a number of historical essays but is best known for composing the text to accompany Johannes Jansson's historical atlas.

        Novae quadraturae arithmeticae, seu de additione fractionum.

      Bologna: Giacopo Monti, 1650. First edition, a fine copy from the library of Robert Honeyman, of this extremely rare and highly original work in which Mengoli gives the first recognizably modern treatment of infinite sequences and series, in the process becoming the first to sum infinite series that are not geometric progressions (these had been treated by Archimedes). Among other general theorems about series, Mengoli proves that a necessary condition for the convergence of a series is that nth term tends to zero as n tends to infinity; he also proves that if the partial sums of a series of positive terms are bounded then the series is convergent. He establishes the divergence of the harmonic series 11/21/31/4... some forty years before Jacques Bernoulli, to whom the discovery is sometimes mistakenly attributed, and by an argument still used in textbooks. He also proves the convergence of the alternating series 1 - 1/21/3 - 1/4..., anticipating Leibniz. Apart from its intrinsic interest, this treatment of series was a necessary precursor to Mengoli's work on quadratures (finding the areas of geometrical figures) which is begun in the present work and continued in his Geometria speciosae (1659) in which Mengoli "set up the basic rules of the calculus thirty years before Newton and Leibniz. Both of these were influenced by his contribution, in the case of Leibniz the influence was direct as he read Mengoli's work, while in the case of Newton he knew of it indirectly through studying Wallis" (MacTutor History of Mathematics). This is an extremely rare book: OCLC lists three copies in US (Brown, Burndy, Columbia); only one other copy located in auction records. Provenance: bookplate of Robert B. & Marian S. Honeyman on front paste-down. In the first decades of the seventeenth century mathematicians began to assimilate the symbolic algebra introduced by Viète in his great work In Artem Analyticem Isagoge (1591). The first important consequence was Descartes' La Géométrie (1637), which used Viète's specious algebra to solve geometrical problems (essentially those that reduce to the determination of the points of intersection of two curves). Mengoli's work applies specious algebra to the summation of infinite series and a different class of geometrical problems, the quadrature of curves. "In Novae quadraturae arithmeticae (Bologna, 1650), Mengoli took up Cataldi's work on infinite algorithms. As Eneström and Vacca have pointed out, he was the first to sum infinite series that were not geometric progressions and to demonstrate the existence of a series which, although its general term tends to zero, has a sum that can be greater than any number. In particular, he showed the divergence of the harmonic series, preceding Jakob Bernoulli's demonstration of it by nearly forty years (it was known to Oresme in the fourteenth century). From this, Mengoli made the general deduction that any series formed from the reciprocals of the terms of an arithmetic progression must diverge" (DSB). "Mengoli based his argument upon two axioms: 1. If infinite magnitudes have an infinite extension, then one can take a certain number of these magnitudes such that they exceed any finite extension (in modern terms, if the sum of a series is infinite, then the partial sums become greater than any positive number) (p. 18). 2. If infinite magnitudes have a finite extension and if they are thought of as being arranged and gathered together to form another extension, then these two extensions are equal (that is to say, if a series with positive terms converges to a finite number, then any rearrangement of the series converges to the same number) (p. 19). From these axioms Mengoli derived various properties of the series of magnitudes. In particular, 1. If the sum of any number of a sequence of finite quantities is bounded, then the series has a finite extension (in modern words, if the partial sums of a series are bounded, the series is convergent) (p. 18). 2. If a series has the finite extension S and A is a quantity less than S, then there is a finite number of the given magnitudes such that their sum exceeds A (namely, there exists a partial sum of the series that is greater than A). "Mengoli applied these axioms and properties to the determination of the sums of various numerical series by conceiving the numbers present in such series as specific values of geometric quantities. In order to sum the series 1/1.21/2.31/3.4.... Mengoli applied a relation, which he had proved [on p. 9] to establish that the partial sum of the first n terms is Sn = n/(n 1). Since n/(n 1) 1, then there should exist a partial sum Sn such that Sn > 1, which is impossible. Now let S < 1. Since the numbers n/(n 1) approach 1 indefinitely when n increases, the partial sums Sn would become greater than S when n is large enough. This is also impossible. Consequently, S = 1" (Ferraro, pp. 7-9). Mengoli went on to demonstrate the convergence of the series of the reciprocals of the numbers n(nr): 1/(1 r)1/(2 r)1/(3 r)... = 1/r(11/21/3...1/r), and summed the reciprocals of the solid numbers: 1/1.2.31/2.3.41/3.4.5... = 1/4. In the introduction to Novae quadraturae arithmeticae, Mengoli proposed the difficult problem of summing the series of reciprocal squares 1/11/41/91/16... but, unsurprisingly, he was unable to solve it. Later known as the 'Basel Problem,' after it was tackled by Jakob Bernoulli almost a century later, it was finally solved by Euler in 1740 (though even then not by entirely rigorous methods). "In spite of these innovations, Mengoli was scarcely understood. In a letter to Collins, Isaac Barrow said that Mengoli's style was harder than Arabic, and that if Mengoli had found something new, he did not have the time to investigate it. Even though his reputation was strong during his lifetime, it seems that Mengoli died isolated and ignored. The reasons for this are not clear. It is possible that his complex and confusing writing style and the complicated nature of his notation made his works too hard to read; perhaps, for this reason, he had no followers. It is equally possible that his introduction of algebra into geometry failed to accord with the prevailing mathematical practice of the 17th century" (Massa, p. 278). "Mengoli's name appears in the register of the University of Bologna for the years between 1648 and 1686. He studied with Cavalieri, whom he succeeded in the chair of mathematics, and also took a degree in Philosophy in 1650 and another in both civil and canon law in 1653. He was in addition ordained to the priesthood and from 1660 until his death served the parish of Santa Maria Maddalena, also in Bologna" (DSB). Honeyman 2210 (this copy); Riccardi I (2), 150. G.

        A series of 4 Chinese drawings]. [China, ca. 1650/60?]. Colour drawings (3 ca. 28 x 18 cm, the 4th cut down to 16.5 x 17.5 cm), apparently showing Manchurian scenes.

      - A series of 4 colour drawings of Manchurian(?) scenes. All mounted on Dutch paper probably from the period 1650-1660. The paper of the drawings themselves ranges, in three cases, from 27 x 16 cm to 30 x 19.5 cm; the fourth has been cut down to 16.5 x 17.5 cm. The drawings show the following (all outdoor scenes):1) a dignitary on horseback, with his attendant on foot carrying a parasol.2) 2 ladies, 1 holding the other's sleeve, with a flowering tree and an octagonal stone basin(?).3) a lady with a flowering plant in a basket, with a deer at her side.4) 2 ladies: 1 with a fan; the other leaning on a table with a vase of flowers.All 4 backed with matching European paper watermarked with a 7-point foolscap above "4" and 3 balls. The closest matches in the literature, Laurentius 431-437 (especially 431 and 435), date from 1651 to 1658.

        Caerte en omlooper van Prins Willem Polder. Bedijkt anno 1650 en 1651. Bij een versamelt en na neerstigh. ondersoek t'samen gestelt door Gerrit van Gersom dijkgraef van desen polder, anno 1723.[Oostburg?], 1723. Royal folio (41 x 27.5 cm). With a hand-coloured title-page, a large folding map of the dikes along the border of the polder, a large folding general map of the polder showing the numbered parcels at a scale of about 1:18,000, and 17 folding detail maps showing the individual plots within the parcels at a larger scale, all executed in brown ink and watercolours and tipped onto the fore-edges of 19 of the 144 numbered text leaves. Contemporary sheepskin parchment.

      - Extraordinary manuscript atlas and register of land ownership for the "Gecombineerde Prins Willem Polder" (combined Prince William polder) in Zeeuws-Vlaanderen (the parts of Flanders situated in the province of Zeeland in the Dutch Republic), north and west of the town of Oostburg, in the southwest corner of the Netherlands. It documents the individual plots of land within the polder and records the owners who acquired each plot when the polder was first laid out in 1650 and 1651, and the owners in 1723. Atlases of this type were drawn up by land-owning corporations or polder authorities for the proper administration of land taxes, and provide one of the most complete and accurate records of land ownership. They generally remained in the archives of the institutions until destroyed or turned over to the governmental archives, so that they rarely come on the market. The present atlas of the Generale Prins Willempolder in Zeeland is therefore an extremely rare primary source for the social, economic and topographic history of the region, the history of the Dutch battle against the sea and the genealogy of the land owners. It was compiled by Gerrit van Gersom, then dijkgraaf (the official charged with oversite of a polder and its dikes) for the Prins Willempolder.Most of the first map is detached and several have tears, creases or tattered edges, sometimes crudely repaired, but most remain in good or very good condition. The paperboard core of the front board is lost, leaving the limp sheepskin, and the binding is soiled and tattered, with some tears, chips and broken sewing supports. An essential primary source for the history, topography and genealogy of the Prins Willempolder in Zeeuws-Vlaanderen, in the southwest corner of the Netherlands, near the coast and the Belgian border.
