DE LA RUE, Philippe
Pierre Mariette, Paris 1651 - This lovely map shows the location of the twelve tribes in the Holy Land. Unlike the Dutch maps of this time, this French map is simplified and elegant, with an emphasis on information rather than ornament. The result is a beautifully simple rendering exemplified by the empty Mediterranean Sea, in which original lines of printer's ink are visible. Pictograms indicate towns, mountains, forts, and forests. A large strapwork title cartouche features an angel at top. This map is from "La Terre sainte en six cartes géographiques" (The Holy Land in six maps), the first collection of maps laid out in a chronological sequence around a unifying theme. La Rue's goal was to trace the history of the world from the origins to the present. The six maps cover the land of Canaan and the Exodus, the Promised Land, Solomon's kingdom, the land at the time of Abraham, the Christian Patriarchate of Jerusalem, and modern Syria under Ottoman rule. The map is in excellent condition with no chips or tears. Slight foxing around the edges and includes a large watermark at right. Little is known about the French mapmaker Philippe de La Rue. He was associated with the pioneering French cartographer Nicolas Sanson, and specialized in Biblical themes. This map is a fine example of his work. Map. Copperplate engraving with beautiful original outline color. Image measures 16 x 21".

CLEMENT (Pierre).
A Langres, Chez Iean Baudrot, 1651. - Petit in-8. Titre gravé. 8ff. 367pp. (1). Veau brun, dos lisse orné (Reliure du XVIIIs.). Edition Originale très rare de cet ouvrage de l'écrivain de Langres Pierre Clément (Langres, c. 1590-1663). C'est un "livre curieux où se trouvent traitées les questions les plus singulières" (Brunet). En effet l'auteur s'est livré à des recherches sur des sujets philosophiques, historiques, religieux, souvent bizarres et curieux: "Quest-ce que l'Ange", "Quel était le Paradis Terrestre", "Comment était faicte l'Arche de Noé", "Comment était faicte l'Arche d'Alliance", "Comme estoit l'Autel des parfums", "Comment estoit fait le Chandelier d'Or du Tabernacle", "Quelles estoient les Sybilles", etc. Beau titre architectural gravé. Très rare impression de Langres (Haute-Marne). On a ajouté une planche gravée par H. Wierix (XVIs.). Quelques rousseurs, reliure frottée. Bon exemplaire néanmoins. Brunet, Suppl. 270. Manque au NUC. Manque au catalogue de la BN. [Attributes: First Edition]

Engraved title-page (and printed). (60),420,(1) pp. and 20 engraved plates. Pastedown inside frontcover a bit soiled. Front-free endpaper with some calculations in old hand.

The plates having a brownspot in upper left corners, but outside image. ¶ Second French edition (translated from the first edition (Latin) of "Principia philosophiae", 1644 by L'Abbe Picot). Descartes here published his general system of epistemology and physics - including his Vortice-theory, the impossibility of a vacuum, etc. - with its Copernicanism mitigated by the idea that all motion is relative.In Descartes's letter prefaced to this French translation of the Principles, he writes that two, and only two, conditions determined whether the first principles proposed could be accepted as true: "First they must be so clear and evident that the mind of man cannot doubt their truth when it attentively applies itself to consider them"; and secondly, everything else must be deducible from them. But he went on to admit,"It is really only God alone who has perfect wisdom, that is to say, who has a complete knowledge of the truth of all things." Brunet II:611.

WING, Vincent.
First edition of "the most significant English astronomical work of its time" (ODNB).<br/><br/> Wing's earliest works were Ptolemaic, but by 1651 he had accepted the fundamentals of Keplerian astronomy as modified by Ismael Boulliau. "Like many astronomers in the second half of the seventeenth century, Wing, following Boulliau and Seth Ward, opted for an 'empty-focus' variant of Kepler's second law, holding that a planet moving in an elliptical orbit describes equal angles in equal times about the focus not occupied by the sun. In works published in 1651 and 1656 Wing, adopting Boulliau's method, had his elliptical orbits, including that of the moon, generated in purely geometrical fashion by circles and epicycles. In his posthumously published <i>Astronomia Britannica</i>, however, he discarded the epicycles in favour of a refined version of the theory proposed by Ward in the latter's <i>Astronomia geometrica</i> (1656), in which the elliptical orbits were assumed to be physically generated. Wing's celestial mechanics contained a mixture of Cartesian and Keplerian components, with a rotating sun and celestial vortex pushing the planets around in their orbits" (DSB XIV 446). <br/><br/> Newton owned a copy of the present work, 'heavily perused and dog-eared' according to Harrison (p. 300). "When in 1669 [Newton] read carefully through Vincent Wing's <i>Astronomia Britannica</i> (which among other innovations paraded a neat transfer of the modified Boulliau hypothesis to the ellipse's centre as a correcting factor on the central anomaly) he added to the endpapers of his libra … [Click Below for Full Description]

Sumptuous mid-19th-century three quarter morocco binding with gilt spine.

Gervase (Gervais, Jarvis) Markham, as well as his father Robert, a Nottinghamshire MP and Sheriff, was the owner of valuable horses, and "is said to have imported the first Arab. In a list of Sir Henry Sidney's horses in 1589 'Pied Markham' is entered as having been sold to the French ambassador [and it, or a horse of the same name, may have been given to Markham by Sir Francis Walsingham], and Gervase sold an Arabian horse to James I for £500" (DNB). - Variously browned; occasional corner faults (no loss to text).

Notes: Eikon Basilike. 'The pourtraicture of his sacred Majesty in his solitudes and sufferings' and 'A perfect copie of prayers used by His Majestie in the time of his sufferings' have separate title pages dated 1649.With a portrait frontispiece of Charles I and a folding plate, bound in front of Eikon Basilike, signed: Guil. Marshall sculpsit, representing Charles with the crown of thorns in his right hand. Authorship of the Eikon basilike was originally attributed to Charles I, but according to Madan (pp. 125-33) it was written by John Gauden who probably included some authentic writings of the king. The imprint is false. Cf. Madan. In this issue, the "Eikon basilike" lacks the "Explanation of the embleme" and the portrait of Charles II as Prince of Wales; this issue also appeared separately.
