        De originibus americanis

      Adrian Valcq, The Hague 1652 - [xx]+282 pages with title printed in red and black. Small octavo (6" x 3 3/4") bound in full leather with blind stamped ruled edges. (Sabin 33014. TPL 6327. Field 717. JCB II 418. Leclerc 290. Rahir 2056. Graesse III 370. Winsor I 369-70) First edition. One of the principal works in the celebrated literary dispute over the origins of the American aborigines. The controversy began in 1642, when Dutch jurist, Hugo Grotius, published his De Origine Gentium Americanorum, in which he postulated that all of North America, except for Yucatan, was inhabited by the descendants of pre-Columbian Scandinavian colonists, that the Peruvians were from China, and that the regions south of Peru were peopled by the Moluccans. His theory aroused an antagonist in Joannes de Laet, who counter-posed that the Scythian race furnished the predominant population of America. Horn, better known by his Latinized name Hornius, entered the debate at the suggestion of De Laet, whose view he supported, but he also held to later additions from the Phoenicians and Carthaginians on the Atlantic side, and from the Chinese on the Pacific. The work contains references to early travels and accounts of America, and discussion of the Huron and Iroquois tribes of Canada. Condition: Rebacked, signature clipped from front free end paper which is partially detached, early book plate to front pastedown, inked library stamp to final page, corners chipped, title with some old ink numbers else a good copy.

        Dris Martini

      London - William Du-Gard 1652 - A re-bound first Englishedition of Luther's Divine Discourses. An excellent copy with good margins. Collected first together by Dr Antonius Lauterbach, and afterward disposed into certain common places by John Aurifaber Dr in Divinitie. Translated out of the high Germane into the English Tongue by Capt. Henrie Bell. Martin Luther (1483 1546) was a German monk, Catholic priest, professor of theology and seminal figure of the 16th-century movement in Christianity known later as the Protestant Reformation. He strongly disputed the claim that freedom from God's punishment for sin could be purchased with monetary values. Luther taught that salvation and subsequently eternity in heaven is not earned by good deeds but is received only as a free gift of God's grace through faith in Jesus Christ as redeemer from sin and subsequently eternity in Hell. His theology challenged the authority of the Pope of the Roman Catholic Church by teaching that the Bible is the only source of divinely revealed knowledge from God and opposed sacerdotalism by considering all baptized Christians to be a holy priesthood. Those who identify with these, and all of Luther's wider teachings, are called Lutherans even though Luther insisted on Christian as the only acceptable name for individuals who professed Christ. Condition: Re-bound in a quarter-calf binding with gilt lettering to spine. Externally in lovely condition. Internally firmly bound with bright and clean pages throughout save for some browning to age. Textblock with some cockling. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

With two folding maps, eleven folding plates, ten tables in text, two text star maps and in text, often full page or nearly so, illustration throughout. A mostly light but persistent dampstain in the gutter of volume 2, a number of plates with minor creasing and wear at the inner edges, one with tears at two folds, a few minor repairs at folds of plates, tear to one page with loss to a marginal gloss, occasional marginal worming, old stamp to one title page. Lacking the extra engraved title in volume 1. [92], 424, [40], [1]; [2], 440, [30], 546, [26]; [2], 590, [36]. Brunet III, 668. Graesse IV, 22. Kircher's largest and most far ranging work, and possibly his most astounding. The range of erudition is remarkable, even if most of the linguistic claims for the hieroglyphics were hugely (often comically) misguided. He was the world's greatest authority on Egypt, the first to recognize the relationship between Coptic and Ancient Egyptian, and certainly the first to draw parallels between the religion of the Egyptians and the religion of China, Japan, India, Mongolia and the Aztecs - as well as tracing its influence through Greece and Rome. A jaw dropping work of syncretic Jesuit scholarship from the last man, as they say, who knew everything. Size: Folio. 3-volume set (complete). Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Over 3 kilos. Category: Magic, Paranormal & Occult; Language & Linguistics. Inventory No: 045199.

        Charles II, in exile in France, appeals for support in Scotland to mount an invasion of England to overthrow Oliver Cromwell, "whereby we may suppresse those wicked rebels, and relieve our good Subjects..."

      "Document Signed ""Charles R"" as King, in exile, 1 page, 8.75"" x 13.25"" with blank integral leaf, Paris, June 25, 1652, to an unknown recipient promoting support for an uprising against the Cromwellian dictatorship. Expected folds, with light toning and soiling, seal remnants and mild dampstain on verso, professionally cleaned and restored and in overall very good condition. The document reads in full (with period spelling and grammar retained): ""Trusty and wellbeloved We greete you well. We have received so good information of your affection and zeale to our service, that we are most confident you will?"gladly embrace any opportunity to contribute your utmost endeavour to the advacem[en]t thereof and to the recovery of your Countrey from the oppression, misery, and dishonor it now groans under by the insolence and tyranny of our English rebells, who propose to themselves the absolute charge of the whole Government thereof and the extirpation of the ancient Nobility and Gentry of that our Kingdome and the entire subiecting [?] of it so their Arbitrary and Lawless Jurisdiction; which every true Scotchman must from his heart abhorre; And therefore we have appointed Lieuten[an]t General Middleton (to whose fidelity and conduct we have committed the managery of that great affaire) to communicate your purpose unto you, that we are resolved to leave no way unattempted on our part, whereby we may suppresse those wicked rebels, and relieve our good Subjects of that Kingdome. For the better and more effectuall doing whereof We desire you to give him your best assistance, in such manner, as upon conference with him, or with any person intrusted by him to you, he shall make ?" appeare unto you to be most conducing thereunto. And whatsoever part you whall beare in this good worke, upon information given us by our said Lieutenant Generall. We shall for the present acknowledge, and gratify and reward assoone as it shallbe in our power. And so we bid you hearty farewell Given at the Louvre in Paris the 25th day of June. In the fourth yeare of R. Reigne."" Smarting from his defeat at the hands of Oliver Cromwell at Worcester and now in exile in Paris, Charles II renews his efforts to secure the English throne. Addressing an unknown Scotsman, Charles invokes the personality of General John Middleton to rally more Scots to the aid of the Stuarts. Following the execution of his father in 1649 at the hands of Oliver Cromwell, the Scottish Parliament, dominated by the Covenanter faction, declared Charles II ""King of Great Britain, France, and Ireland,"" but refused him entry unless he accepted Presbyterianism thought the realm. At first, Charles II resisted, but after one of his loyal generals, James Graham, Marquess of Montrose, mounted an unauthorized invasion of Scotland which ended in his capture and execution, he acceded to the demands of the Scottish Parliament. Charles arrived in Scotland in in June 1650 where he formally agreed to the Covenanters' demands. In January 1651 he was formally crowned King of Scotland, but following his defeat by Cromwell's forces at Worcester in September 1651, he went into exile in France. Charles now pinned his hopes on the skills and abilities of John Middleton (1608-1674). Middleton was a professional soldier during the English Civil War and during The Restoration. A Scotsman, Middleton first served in France in 1632 as a pikeman but quickly rose to the ranks. In 1639 he served under James Graham, 1st Marquess of Montrose during the Bishop's Wars against Charles I. During the English Civil War he served as a colonel in the Parliamentarian army, subsequently leading the cavalry with the rank of lieutenant general. In 1646, he became commander-in-chief of the Army of the Covenant with whom, in 1648 he invaded northern England in an unsuccessful effort to secure the release of Charles I who had been imprisoned by the Parliamentarians. Defeated by Cromwell at Preston, he returned to Scotland and attempted to foment a royalist uprising there. When Charles II landed in Scotland, Middleton became a general in his army, but was wounded and captured at the Battle of Worcester in September 1651 and imprisoned at the Tower of London. He soon escaped and joined Charles II in exile in Paris. In February 1654, Middleton again travelled to Scotland in commanded of Charles II's troops during the brief Royalist uprising there. After his defeat at the hands of General Monck at Dalnaspidal in July 1654, he returned to exile with Charles II in Paris. Following the restoration of Charles II in 1660, Middleton became 1st Earl of Middleton. In 1668 Charles II made him Governor of Tangier, a post he held until his death six years later. "

        Oculus Hoc Est: Fundamentum Opticum, in quo ex accurata Oculi anatome, ....

      . London, F.Flesher, 1652, Kl.4°, (5 Bl.), 254 pp., zahlreiche Holzschnitte, im Pergamenteinband der Zeit; feines, frisches, fleckenfreies Exemplar.. "In this book, Scheiner demonstrated for the first time that the retina is the actual organ of sight and explained the pupil changes known as "accommodation." He also devised the pin-hole test ("Scheiner's test") to illustrate accommodation and refraction." - Seltene zweite Auflage des berühmten Grundlagenwerks der Physiologischen Optik, mit den ersten Berichten seiner Versuche am menschlichen Auge! - Der vollständige Titel lautet - "Oculus, hoc est: Fundamentum opticum: in quo ex accurata oculi anatome, abstrusarum experientiarum sedula pervestigatione, ex invisis specierum visibilium tam everso quam erecto situ spectaculis, nec non solidis rationum momentis, radius visualis eruitur; sua visioni in oculo sedes decernitur; anguli visiorii ingenium aperitur; difficultates veteres, novae, innumerae expediuntur, abstrusa, obscura, curiosa plurima in medium proferuntur; plura depromendi occasio harum rerum studiosis datur: opus multorum votis diu expetitum; philosophis omnibus, praesertim qui naturae vim in medicina, physica aut mathesi addiscenda rimantur, neque inutile neque ingratum, imo necessarium futurum / auctore Christophoro Scheiner " - und liest sich in der Übersetzung von Moritz von Rohr - "Das AUGE oder Grundlage der Optik, worinnen, aus sorgfältiger Zergliederung, des Auges, fleißiger Erforschung wunderlicher Versuche aus den nicht erblickten Schaustücken, der bald umgekehrt, bald aufrecht gelagerten Sehformen sowie dem entscheidenden Gewicht der Gründe der Sehstrahl ermittelt, sein Sitz im Auge, beim Sehen festgelegt und das Wunder des Gesichtswinkel eröffnet wird; zahllose alte und neue Schwierigkeiten werden gehoben, wunderliches, dunkles, merkwürdiges wird in reicher Fülle vorgebracht und den dieser Dinge beflissenen Gelegenheit gegeben, noch mehreres zu entwickeln: Ein Werk, das vieler Wünsche seit lange begehrten, und das allen Philosophen, zumal denen, die durch Aneignung von Medizin, Physik und Mathematik der Natur Kraft erforschen, nicht nutzlos oder gar unersprießlich sondern vielmehr notwendig sein wird. Von dem Verfasser Christoph Scheiner, der Ges. Jesu". - Die wichtigsten Forschungen Scheiners liegen auf dem Gebiet der physiologischen Optik, auf dem wir ihn in gewissem Sinn als Vorläufer von Helmholtz ansehen können. -cf. M.v. Rohr - Scheiner beginnt mit der eingehenden anatomischen Beschreibung des Auges, so wurde seine schematische Darstellung des Auges auf Seite 17 mit der ersten exakten Darstellung der Teile des Auges und dem exzentrischen Sehnerveneintritt ein Meilenstein der wissenschaftlichen Darstellung des Auges. - Die Netzhaut ist nach Scheiner und nach Kepler, entgegen früheren Meinungen, welche die Wahrnehmung des Bildes in den Glaskörper oder gar in die Linse verlegten, der eigentliche Sitz des Sehvermögens. - Er entfernte die Häute an der hinteren Wand eines Ochsenauges bis auf die Netzhaut und brachte eine Kerze in einiger Entfernung vor dem präparierten Auge an. Das umgekehrte Bild der Kerzenflamme konnte dann auf der Netzhaut von einem hinter dem Auge befindlichen Standpunkt wahrgenommen werden. Später (im Jahre 1625) stellte Scheiner den gleichen Versuch mit demselben Ergebnis am menschlichen Auge an. - So gelang Scheiner der Nachweis, daß die Netzhaut das eigentliche Empfindungsorgan des Sehens ist und so bewies Scheiner die Ähnlichkeit des Auges mit der Camera obscura. - Da er nun wusste, daß die Netzhaut eine Verzweigung des Sehnerven darstellt, erkannte Scheiner, auf welche Weise das Sehen dem Gehirn vermittelt wird. Scheiner ließ sich bei der Beschäftigung mit optischen Fragen von dem Gedanken leiten, daß das Auge ein nach den Prinzipien der Optik gebautes Organ und deshalb besonders geeignet sei, die Grundlehren der Optik zu entwickeln. So entstand dies Werk, es führt den, jenen Gedanken Scheiners zum Ausdruck bringenden Titel "Oculus, hoc est fundamentum opticum", 1619 in Insbruck zu erst erschienen - Scheiner zeigte, daß das Brechungsvermögen der wässrigen Feuchtigkeit mit demjenigen des Wassers und dasjenige der Linse mit dem des Glases nahezu übereinstimmen, während das Brechungsvermögen des Glaskörpers zwischen dem der erstgenannten Medien liegt. Der Gang des Lichtstrahls wird dann vor seinem Eintritt in das Auge, bis er die Netzhaut trifft, verfolgt. Die entsprechenden Kapitelüberschriften (Lib.III. Pars I. Cap.VI-XI) geben am besten einen Überblick über den Gang und die Ausführlichkeit der von Scheiner unternommenen Untersuchung. - Sie lauten: Brechung des Lichtstrahls beim Übergang aus der Luft in die Hornhaut, Brechung beim Übergang aus der Hornhaut in die wässerige Feuchtigkeit, Vergleich der das Auge zusammensetzenden Medien hinsichtlich ihrer Dichte, Brechung des Lichtes beim Übergang aus der wässerigen Feuchtigkeit in die Kristalllinse, Brechung an der Grenze von Kristalllinse und Glaskörper und Netzhaut. - Scheiner gab ferner die erste zutreffende Antwort auf die Frage, wie es kommt, daß das Auge nahe und entfernte Gegenstände deutlich zu sehen vermag. Dieses als Akkommodationsfähigkeit bezeichnete Vermögen erklärte Scheiner daraus, daß die Gestalt der Linse sich ändert, indem die Linse sich für nahe Gegenstände stärker wölbt, für entferntere dagegen sich abflacht. - Neben dem Vergleich des Brechungsvermögens durch Immersionsmethoden, der Akkommodation, des Studiums des Strahlenverlaufs im Auge durch den noch heute nach ihm benannten "Scheinerschen Versuch" zeigte er eine Reihe weitere geistreicher Experimente, wie die Messung der Hornhautkrümmung durch Vergleich der Größe der Reflexbilder von Hornhaut und verschieden großen Glaskugeln, die Probleme Gesichtswinkel und Blickwinkel und die damit verbundene Änderungen der Perspektive beim direkten und indirekten Sehen seien nur kurz zur Charakterisierung des Inhalts herausgegriffen. - Einige Versuche Scheiners können wir als Vorstufen heute wichtiger optischer Prüfungsmethoden betrachten: In Lib. I Pars II, Kap.2 bringt er einen Schirm mit sehr kleiner Öffnung vor das Auge. Um die Strahlenkreuzung in dieser kleinen Blende zu zeigen, führt er zwischen Auge und Schirm eine Schneide ein. Von dem durch die Öffnung zu sehenden Objekten werden dann zuerst jene abgedeckt, die sich auf der der Schneide gegenüber liegenden Seite befinden. Umgekehrt ist es, wenn die Schneide vor der Blende in den Strahlengang geführt wird. Beim "Focaultschen Schneideverfahren" tritt an die Stelle der materiellen Blende der Fokus bzw. die Kaustik des zu prüfenden Objekts. - In Lib. I Pars II, Kap.5-9 bringt Scheiner einen Schirm mit mehreren kleinen Öffnungen (Abstände kleiner als Pupillendurchmesser) vor das Auge und betrachtet ein kleines leuchtendes Objekt. Es erscheint nur dann einfach, wenn es scharf auf der Netzhaut abgebildet wird. Bei Abstands- und Akkommodationsänderung oder bei Fehlsichtigkeit erscheint es in der Anzahl der Blendenöffnungen vervielfacht. - Später in Lib. III Pars 1, Kap. 13 variiert er diesen Versuch, in dem er anstelle des Auges eine Linse und einen Auffangschirm verwendet und die Linse bis auf mehrere kleine Öffnungen abblendet. Auch hier wird nur bei scharfer Abbildung ein kleines leuchtendes Objekt einfach abgebildet, sonst in der Zahl der Blendenöffnungen. Wir haben hier das Prinzip der "Hartmannschen Prüfmethode", die seit Anfang unseres Jahrhunderts häufig angewendet wird. - Seine Methode, die Refraktion eines Auges mit objektiven Meßmethoden erfassen zu können, ist der älteste Versuch, die Koinzidenz zweier Strahlenbüschel zu zeigen, welcher sich heute im Refraktometer von Hartinger noch wiederfindet. - Ferner waren die Realisierung und Einführung der Projektionsmethode, die Anwendung des Fernrohrs mit positivem Okular und mit Umkehrlinse, die Verbindung eines Fernrohrs mit einer parallaktischen Aufstellung wichtige Verbesserungen der optischen Beobachtungstechnik, die wir Scheiner zu verdanken haben. - Scheiner verfügte über manuelle Geschicklichkeit. Er gibt an, seine Linsen selbst hergestellt zu haben, und hielt als erster eine Vorlesung über das Fernrohr in Ingolstadt (1612-1614), wobei je eine Konkavlinse und Konvexlinse erwähnt wurde, und es ist ihm in erster Linie zu verdanken, daß das von Kepler angegebene astronomische Fernrohr endlich gebaut wurde. Unter dem späteren Namen "Heliotrophium Telioscopium" benutzte er es zur objektiven Vorführung der unabhängig von Galilei von ihm entdeckten Sonnenflecken. - Scheiner leitete aus seinen Beobachtungen die Umdrehungszeit der Sonne und die Lage ihres Äquators ab; er erkannte auch bereits die Eigenbewegung der Flecken und erfand den Pantographen bereits 1603. - Hirschberg 310; Dannemann, Fr., Die Naturwissenschaften ..

        America Noviter Delineata

      Jansson, Amsterdam 1652 - Copper-engraved map, with period hand-colouring in outline. Insets of each polar region, both oceans embellished with ships and sea monsters. French text on verso. The celebrated Hondius map of the Americas. Originally issued by Jodocus Hondius Jr. in 1618, this map of the Americas was modified by Henricus Hondius following his brother's death. The original map was based on Jodocus Hondius the elder's map of 1606, along with the Willem Blaeu maps of 1608 and 1617. The map would form Europe's geographical understanding of North and South America for the first half of the 17th century. Several major corrections have been made compared to the 1606 Hondius map. The St. Lawrence Bay and River are much improved, and at the opposite end, Tierra del Fuego has been separated, however nebulously, from the great Terra Incognita, thought (correctly) to exist since ancient times. The rather assertive outgrowth of Virginia in the 1606 map has been modified to reflect more accurately the eastward swelling at North Carolina. Interestingly, Henricus Hondius' next map of North America (1636) adopted the increasingly popular notion that California was an island, and greatly advanced that belief. The present copy an example of Burden's fifth state, without the border found only on the first state of 1618, with Jansson's imprint at the lower right, and with the date and Hondius imprint removed from the cartouche.

This is the first printed commentary on Harvey's book and Ross adds a letter from another of Harvey's critics, James Primrose. Harvey, of course, discovered the circulation of the blood and wrote his De Generatione (1651) on the generation of animals. That was also the first book on midwifery by an Englishman. Ross (1590-1654) was born in Aberdeen, Scotland. He was the first to translate the Koran into English and was called "the vigilant watchdog of conservatism and orthodoxy" by Richard Westfall. He attacked Thomas Browne (defending, for instance, the beliefs that crystal is a sort of fossilized ice, and that garlic hinders magnetism) and many other contemporary ideas. In other controversies he took on Sir Kenelm Digby, Thomas Hobbes, and William Harvey. (See wikipedia). Second edition of a work first published the preeding year and the first to include the attack on Harvey.

        China Veteribus Sinarum Regio nunc Incolis Tame dicta.

      Amsterdam: 1652-53 - Copper engraving. Original colour. Fine condition, map has a small stain. An elegantly engraved map of the region with the eastern part of China (bounded in the north-west by the Great Wall) dominated by several large lakes. The fictitious Chaimay Lacus is shown with numerous rivers flowing south into India and Siam. Korea is depicted as a strangely shaped island separated from the mainland by a narrow strait. Taiwan is located in a roughly correct position, named as both Pakan al I. Formosa and Tayoan. Korea, however, is still an island, and Japan consists only of three islands. The map is richly embellished with European sailing ships and Chinese sampans, a decorative distance scale, and a title cartouche flanked by a Chinese man and woman. Based on Jesuit surveys, the map represents the next major revision in the cartography of China after Ortelius' 1584 map. Published in the Nouvel Atlas.

        Le due Aggrippine.,

      Venetia, Appresso li Guerigli 1652. - kl.-8°. 407 S. Pgmt. d. Zt. Tit am unteren Rand um ca. 1,5 cm. beschnitten. pp. vgl. Hayn-Gotend. IX, 443. - Pallavicino Ferrante, wurde 1615 als Mitglied der alten Adelsfamilie der Pallavicini in Piacenza geboren. Als Verfasser von Satiren und Schmähschriften wurde er 1644 in Avignon von päpstlichen Schergen enthauptet. Unter anderem schmähte er Papst Urban VIII Barberini, jenem Papst der laut Pallavicini Jesus den Bart geschnitten habe (barba). Außerdem schrieb er gegen die Jesuiten, die römische Inquisition, die die Verleger ruinierte, und nicht zuletzt gegen die Spanier, die zu jener Zeit Teile Italiens besetzt hielten. Pallavicino verbrachte sechs Monate im Kerker bevor er entkam. Dennoch setzte er seine Attacken auf den Papst fort. In dieser Zeit verfasste er das anti-jesuitische Werk `La Retorica delle puttane`. Die 15 Lektionen der alten Hure in seinem Roman beruhten auf jenem Handbuch, daß in Jesuitenschulen in Verwendung war. Das war ein Schritt zu viel gewesen. Abermals musste Pallavicino fliehen. Durch Verrat fiel er den Päpstlichen in Avignon in die Hände. Nach vierzehn Monaten Haft wurde er dort enthauptet.

Additional printed title to Second Part. Modern binding in full leather to style. Engraved title to first part soiled and with inner margin extended. Some marginal worming and dampstaining, a few contemporary marginal notes and the occasional tear, but all text legible. Unusually generous margins and sharp impressions throughout. Overall, a solid copy of one of the masterpieces of world literature. "One of those universal works which are read by all ages at all times." (PMM 111) Published in two volumes a decade apart (in 1605 and 1615), Don Quixote is the most influential work of literature to emerge from the Spanish Golden Age and the entire Spanish literary canon. As a founding work of Western literature, it is often cited as the first modern novel. The Shelton translation is generally considered the English translation that "realizes Cervantes' manner more nearly than any successor." (DNB) Grolier, Langland to Wither, 213. Pforzheimer 140.
