VISSCHER, Claes Janszoon.
Amsterdam, 1652. Original colour. 445 x 560mm. Restoration to margin and centre fold. This magnificent planisphere manages to include 30 separate illustrations in its panels. Along the top and bottom are equestrian portraits of the Twelve Cæsars of Tacitus. The four corners feature female allegorical figures of the Continents, with Europe as a shepherdess, Asia seated on a camel, Africa on a crocodile and America on an armadillo! The left border has prospects of Rome, Amsterdam, Jerusalem and Tunis, interspersed with illustrations of European, Asian and African dress. The right border is given over completely to America: the prospects of Mexico City, Havana, Pernambuco and Todos os Santos Bay are separated by vignettes of North American natives, South Americans and the giants of the Magellan Strait. Originally published in 1639, most of the cartography has been copied from Blaeu, although Arctic America has been extended, as has the St Lawrence River. This state has the date 1652, the year of Visscher's death, added. SHIRLEY: 350.

Oughtred (William)
-77. 3 works in 1 vol. (see below), 8vo, contemporary ?Continental limp vellum, overlapping fore-edges, upper yap edge mostly gnawed away with similar damage but only slight loss to the lower edges, a tract appears to have been removed from the front. A remarkable sammelband containing the bulk of Oughtred's published works, with the exception of his Mathematical recreations and Trigonometry. Oughtred (1574-1660) was one of the most important and influential mathematicians of the first half of the seventeenth century and was much admired by Newton, who described him as "a man whose judgment (if any man's) may be safely relied upon" (Correspondence III, 364). Oughtred "exercised a formative influence on a host of young men with a mathematical bent, alike at the university level and at the instrument maker's bench" (Taylor, Practitioners, p. 192), notably including Christopher Wren, John Wallis, Seth Ward, Jonas Moore and Charles Scarborough. One of Oughtred's pupils, William Forster, visited him at his rectory at Albury, Surrey in 1630, and persuaded him to let him translate and publish his Latin treatises. 1.

Porta, Giovanni Battista [Giambattista] della; Antonius Polemo (attrib.); Giovanni Ingegneri.
Sebastian Combi & Gio. LaNoù, 1652. Della Porta's influential work on physiognomy, originally published in 1586 as De humana physiognomonia. Here, the author seeks to categorize similarities between visible external physical characteristics and the traits of the soul or character hidden within -- formalizing a pseudo-science that continues (in assorted variations) to find adherents even today. The human physiognomy treatise is followed by its celestial counterpart, and then, as issued, by the Fisonomia di Polemone (although attributed to Polemo, actually a Byzantine forgery) and the Fisonomia naturale of Giovanni Ingegneri. The two Italian-laguage della Porta texts are illustrated with => numerous in-text copper engravings: These remarkable vignettes include, along with a sequence of individual animals and humans, a series of => side-by-side comparisons of human facial types to various types of animal, offered as examples of Porta's determinations: "The horse is a noble animal, therefore it is a sign of nobility to walk erect with the head held high. Men who resemble a donkey are like that animal: timid, stupid, nervous. He who looks like an ostrich is akin to it in character: he is timid, elegant, vicious, stolid. Man who reminds us of a swine is a swine, eating greedily and having all the other characteristics, such as rudeness, irascibility, lack of discipline, sordidness, lack of intelligence [and] modesty. In a similar way, men who look like ravens are impudent; those who resemble oxen are stubborn, lazy, irascible; men who have lips shaped like those of a lion … [Click Below for Full Description]

JANSSONIUS JOANNES
Incisione in rame, mm 345x475. Piacevole carta di Cipro, nella edizione senza testo del 1652, arricchita da vari bei cartigli. Tratta da "Accurata Orbis antiqui Delineatio" l'atlante storico, curato da Hornius ed inserito da Janssonius come volume VI del suo "Atlas Novus". La carta è una copia di quella originariamente edita da Ortelio nel "Parergon" del "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum". Janssonius, genero di Jodocus Hondius e cognato di Henricus, 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); risultò così divenire il grande avversario della famiglia Blaeu nel secolo d'oro della cartografia olandese. Perfetto esemplare marginosissimo. Copper engraving, mm 345x475; classic map of Cyprus. From "Accurata Orbis antiqui Delineatio", Janssonius' historical atlas with text by Hornius, published as volume VI of his Atlas Novus. 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. In the mid 1630s Jansson partnered with his brother-in-law, Henricus Hondius, to produce his important work, the eleven volume Atlas Major. About this time, Jansson's name also begins to appear on Hondius reissues of notable Mercator/Hondius atlases.

Dedica dello stampatore al padre somasco Giov. Agostino dei Conti di Lingueglia. Pregevole edizione, ristampa dell'ediz. del Sarzina 1640, di questa vasta e fortunatissima opera sulla magia (''de magia naturali, artificiali, et praestigiatrice; de magia daemoniaca; de malefico; de prophetia, divinatione et coniectatione; de iudicis officio; de officio confessarij''), alla quale ''è legata soprattutto, e non sempre in senso positivo, la fama di Del Rio'' (cfr. Palagio degli incanti, p.133), gesuita, nato ad Anversa nel 1551, morto a Lovanio nel 1608. Include tutti i rituali e processi di accusa alla stregoneria e magia e altri rituali importanti come l'unione sessuale tra demoni e streghe. ''Citando circa milleduecento fonti, considerate sempre attendibili se attestano la realtà della stregoneria, il gesuita sintetizza la sterminata produzione demonologica esistente e mette così a disposizione di giudici ed inquisitori un nuovo Malleus cattolico, aggiornato ed eruditissimo...'' (cfr. Bibliotheca lamiarum, n. 67, p. 167-8). Il trattato riscosse enorme successo: dopo la prima di Lovanio del 1599-1600, ebbe oltre quindici edizioni nel XVII secolo e fu ancora ristampata.

BACON, Francis
"Some books should be tasted, some devoured, but only a few should be chewed and digested thoroughly." ― Francis Bacon Francis Bacon, one of the most famous English philosophers and scientists of the Renaissance. While most of his work deals with discovery, scientific method, and the scientific revolution, he did lean strongly toward Puritanism in his personal devotion. An extremely rare printing of Bacon's "Augmentis Scientiarum". This work was written mostly to help classify philosophy and the sciences. Bacon also developed his theories on the relationship between science and theology. Originally printed in 1605, this fine Leiden reissue is a highly desirable printing, with an full-page, added engraved title. While the title page does not mention Elzevier, 'Adriani Wijngaerden, 1652' was associated with the Elzevier house, in other titles as well. (Willems 1672). This is the first edition printed with this publishing name. According to Willems, "A well printed volume that joins Bacon and Elzevier and of which there are two previous editions [first printed in 1645]. Also, attractive copies" (Willems 1695).

Testimony of the public notary Geronimo de Aldrete, concerning the plight of Father San Jacinto de Vargas, of the Order of Santo Domingo. He had traveled to Oaxaca to take control of the parish of San Francisco de la Mar, but was denied the parish upon his arrival. "I, Geronimo de Aldrete public notary of this city of Antequera Valle de Oaxaca on behalf of the king himself I certify and testify to the truth that on the 13th of August being in the Holy Cathedral of this city I saw the Father Frei Jacinto de Bargas presbyter priest of the order of Santo Domingo stating that he came to assume the parish of San Francisco de la mar offered to him by the Vice-patron but the Dean and the Chapter didn´t wanted to give it to him. And so it is put on the record his obedience coming here to assume this position by order of the Provincial Attorney General asking a testimony of it and so I handle the present document that it is written in the city of Antequera on the 16th of August of 1652."

An absolutely incredible 17th-century German geography book filled with maps, city plans, and engravings "covering events in Europe through 1651. This first edition was the first edition printed by Schleder and is one of the very few editions of this book to ever see multiple reprints. This was also the first edition to see print after the death of the series' founder, Merian. This edition was intended to the sixth and final edition, but because of popular demand, another volume was written 11 years later, again by Schleder. While the content is incredible and historically accurate, the copper engravings have always been the strongest appeal, even in the 17th-century. Matthäus Merian der Ältere (1593 - 1650) was a Swiss-born engraver who worked in Frankfurt for most of his career, where he also ran a publishing house and was most known for his German-language history book "Theatrum Europaeum." Theatrum Europaeum was a journal on the history of the German-speaking lands by Matthäus Merian.

SCHYNVOET, Simon.
Berlin Kat. 3398 (2); Springer p. 42 (together with Schynvoet's series of vases, etc.); Thieme-Becker 30, p. 393. Beautiful print-series of elaborately decorated monumental columns designed as garden ornaments by Simon Schynvoet (1652-1727), a Dutch garden architect and art collector, many with coats of arms, portraits, historical or allegorical figures, views, etc. Many are anonymous and probably intended as general models, but 10 (including the title-plate and dedication-plate that serve as prints 1 and 2, were designed to commemorate specific events or people. Most of these are dated: 1689 (the Prince of Orange when crowned King William III of England) and 1697-1704 (including the radical theologian Balthasar Bekker, with a caricature medallion portrait), so the series was probably issued in that year or very soon after. The plates were engraved by his son, the draughtman and engraver Jacob Schynvoet (1685-post 1733), and by Jan Goeree (1670-1731), the most sought after engraver and book illustrator at the beginning of the 18th century.With the title-print somewhat foxed, but otherwise in good condition and untrimmed, preserving the deckles. A splendid series of garden art prints.

London Richard Hodgkinsonne, for Andrew Crooke, 1652. Second English Edition CERVANTES SAAVEDRA, Miguel de. The History of the Valourous and Witty Knight Errant Don Quixote, of the Mancha. Translated by Thomas Shelton. London: Richard Hodgkinsonne, for Andrew Crooke, 1652. Second English edition. Second complete edition in Englsih and the first edition of both parts issued together (and first English edition in folio). Translated by Thomas Shelton. Folio (289 x 187 mm), [8], 137, [5], 138-214, 216-244, 244-274; complete, but for the final blank. Bound in contemporary full calf, rebacked to style with gilt spine title and compartments, new endpapers. An excellent, clean copy internally with a few millimeters repaired at the lower edge of the title page, and some minor creasing to the title, otherwise about as fresh a copy as one could hope for. "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.

RUMPHIUS, Georg Everhard.
, . . Landwehr & V.d. Krogt, VOC 591 note; Nissen, ZBI 3519. Second edition, in the original Dutch, of a monumental and splendidly illustrated account of Ambonese and other East Indian marine specimens excluding vertebrate fish, apparently drawn in the year of the death of the owner, Rumphius. The 60 large engraved plates show crustaceans, sea urchins, sand-dollars, starfish, shellfish, barnacles and coral, along with crystals, minerals, amber, fossils and even some man-made artefacts. Some plates show one large figure, others more than twenty small ones. Its precise descriptions and information on habitat anticipate modern marine biology.Rumphius, a German physician and naturalist, worked for the Dutch East India Company (VOC) from 1652 to his death, mostly on Ambon in the Moluccas. Traditionally the illustrations were attributed to Maria Sibylla Merian (1647-1717), but this has recently been proven to be erroneous. Slightly creased, otherwise in very good condition and wholly untrimmed, leaving broad margins. Binding slightly rubbed and sides a bit soiled, but still firm and good.

Husum, Matthias et Nicolaus Petersen, 1652. Folio. (48x34 cm.). Bound in a fine contemp. full calf with raised bands. Covers with rectangular triple gilt borders and a large gilt centerpiece. The binding expertly restored with rebacking, edges and corners neatly repaired. Scratches on covers repaired. Edges gilt. Endpapers renewed. Engraved ornamental title-page. (8),301,(3) pp. and 40 double-page maps and plans (43x52 cm, some larger) with original HAND-COLOURING IN OUTLINE. Title with a small stamp in upper margin. Lower margin of title-page a bit frayed. Small wormholes at end, mainly marginal, but a few in image of last 2 maps. With the usual browning to text and maps. ¶ First edition of the first full mapping of Schleswig-Holstein and the FIRST ATLAS PRINTED IN DENMARK. The work is highly esteemed, as the mapping and surveying by the Danish cartographer Johannes Mejer showed a precision which was without competition at its time. Mejer was educated in the tradition of Tycho Brahe and Longomontanus, and in the years 1638-48 he mapped Schleswig-Holstein and published these 37 maps in Danckwerth's description of Schleswig-Holstein. These maps were the best for nearly 150 years, and were used by Blaeu and other carthographers. The Danish King, Chr. IV, urged him to proceed with his mapping of Denmark, which he did for some years, making maps of Jutland and a general map of Denmark, in order to make a Nordic atlas, but only these 37 maps were published. Because the quality of the maps was of such a high quality compared with the surveying of the day, the Younger Blaeu used t … [Click Below for Full Description]

A remarkable sammelband containing the bulk of Oughtred's published works, with the exception of his Mathematical recreations and Trigonometry. Oughtred (1574-1660) was one of the most important and influential mathematicians of the first half of the seventeenth century and was much admired by Newton, who described him as "a man whose judgment (if any man's) may be safely relied upon" (Correspondence III, 364). Oughtred "exercised a formative influence on a host of young men with a mathematical bent, alike at the university level and at the instrument maker's bench" (Taylor, Practitioners, p. 192), notably including Christopher Wren, John Wallis, Seth Ward, Jonas Moore and Charles Scarborough. One of Oughtred's pupils, William Forster, visited him at his rectory at Albury, Surrey in 1630, and persuaded him to let him translate and publish his Latin treatises. 1.

CATHOLIC CHURCH. ROTA ROMANA. - [IN MAGNIFICENT BARBERINI-BINDINGS]
Venice, Turrin, 1652 + Augustae Taurinorum, 1652. Folio. Bound in two magnificent, splendidly gilt, contemporary, uniform full calf bindings. Profusely gilt all over. All edges gilt. Spines elaborately gilt; expertly restored at capitals, barely noticeable. Boards with large gilt elaborately ornameted frames, the inner ones with four beautiful ornamental fans in the corners (some thus call this style a "fan-binding"). Front board with centre-pieces consisting in the coat of arms of Antonio Barberini, with the three bees, inside an octagon that is also profusely ornamented. The centre-pieces of the back boards have been replaced early on with an anonymous coat of arms, to hide the identity of the previous owner. This has been done very well and is not noticeable at a first glance. This near-contemporary anonymous coat of arms, in the exact same style as the ornamentation and leather of the binding, is also place on the inside of the front board of vol. 1. Traces of the previous owner has also been removed by cutting out his name from the title-pages and from the first dedication-leaf of vol. 1. Light occasional brownspotting, but a overall a very well preserved, splendid set.Vol. 1 with engraved portrait of Clements Merlino to verso of half-title and with large engraved coat of arms of Antonio Barberini.

SCHEINER, Christoph
F.Fleshe, London, 1652. In 8vo. (6) ff + 254 pp. Woodcut tail and head pieces, initial letters and illustrations throughout the text. Some browning and foxing, but overall a good copy. Bound in full cartonee with inked title on spine; uncut leaves. 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. Rare second edition of the famous Fundamentals of Physiological Optics, with the first reports of his experiments on the human eye, Scheiner begins with the detailed anatomical description of the eye, so his schematic representation of the eye on page 17 with the first exact representation of the parts of the eye and the eccentric optic nerve entry became a milestone in the scientific presentation of the eye. According to Scheiner and Kepler, the retina is, according to earlier opinions, the perception of the image in the vitreous body or even in the lens, the actual seat of vision. - He removed the skins on the back wall of an ox's eye to the retina and placed a candle at some distance in front of the prepared eye. The inverted image of the candle flame could then be perceived on the retina from a position behind the eye. Later (in 1625) Scheiner started the same experiment with the same result on the human eye. His method of detecting the refraction of an eye with objective measuring methods is the oldest attempt to show the coincidence of two clusters of rays, which are still … [Click Below for Full Description]

Edition originale rare de cette pièce burlesque en vers publiée en imitation du Virgile travesti de Scarron dont la publication s'étala de 1648 à 1653. Le livre s'ouvre sur une "épîstre fort longue" à Henry de Savoie, archevêque de Rheims signée des initiales L.D.L., c'est-à-dire de Henri de Loménie comte de Brienne qui, au passage, s'attribue l'ouvrage. Mais en dehors de cette épître proprement dite, rien de permet d'enlever à Claude Petit-Jehan le mérite de la composition de cette oeuvre burlesque. Edition ornée d'un beau frontispice de Chauveau qui représente le vieux Virgile attablé qui se tourne vers un Virgile accommodé en marquis autour duquel s'affaire une troupe de petits-maîtres.

Wolfgang Endter
Wolfgang Endter, 1652. Die Weimarer Bibel : Der um die Bildung seiner Landeskinder bemühte Herzog Ernst I., der Fromme von Sachsen-Weimar (1601-1675) gab in der Nürnberger Druckerei eine Bibelausgabe in Auftrag, zu deren Ausstattung und Kommentierung Professoren der Universität Jena beigetragen hatten. Die Herausgeber waren die Theologen Johannes Gerhard (1582-1637) und Salomon Glassius (1593-1656). Kennzeichnend für die Weimarer Bibel ist die meist parenthetische Kommentierung des Bibeltextes, die in Klammern geschlossen und in kleinerer Type gehalten unmittelbar dem Bibelvers folgt. Das Textcorpus selbst ist nicht mit Bildern geziert. Hingegen sind den Weimarer Bibeln neben den üblichen Titelblättern zahlreiche erklärende Kupferstiche und inhaltsreiche Zwischentitelblätter als ganzseitige Kupfer beigegeben. Die Weimarer Bibel übernimmt die Tradition der sächsischen Herrscher, die seit der Reformation auch die Oberhäupter der jeweiligen Landeskirchen sind, sich unmittelbar nach Titelblatt und Privileg ganzseitig abbilden zu lassen und sich mit einem Lebenslauf vorzustellen. Damit wird die Bibelausgabe zugleich auch zur Ahnengalerie der Ernestinischen Linie Sachsens, die bis 1547 immerhin drei Kurfürsten gestellt hatte. Dennoch wird die Weimarer Bibel gerne auch als Kurfürstenbibel bezeichnet.
