        Geometria indivisibilibus continuorum nova quadam ratione promota. In hac postrema edictione [sic] ab erroribus expurgata.

      Bologna: Heirs of Evangelista Dozza, 1653. Second edition (first, 1635) of Cavalieri's text containing the discovery of the 'method of indivisibles', one of the most important forerunners of the integral calculus. Book II of the work includes the statement of 'Cavalieri's principle' for the determination of areas and volumes, which considers an area as made up of an indefinite number of equidistant parallel line segments ('omnes lineae'), and a solid as made up of an indefinite number of parallel plane areas. It states that, if two planar figures are contained between a pair of parallel lines, and if the lengths of the two segments cut by them from any line parallel to the including lines are always in a given ratio, then the areas of the two planar pieces are also in this ratio (there is an analogous principle for the determination of volumes). Cavalieri's principle provided a simple and effective alternative to the Archimedean method of exhaustion, and was used by Kepler, Galileo, Cavalieri's pupil Torricelli, Wallis, Pascal, and others. The first edition of the Geometria is a notorious rarity, ABPC/RBH listing only the Macclesfield copy in the last 80 years. This second edition is not as rare, but is still very difficult to find in such fine condition as in our copy. "For Cavalieri a surface consists of an indefinite number of equidistant parallel straight lines and a solid of a set of equidistant parallel planes. These constitute the line and surface indivisibles respectively. For plane figures (or solids) a regula, that is, a line (or plane) drawn through the vertex, is the starting point. The regula moves parallel to itself until it comes into coincidence with a second line (or plane) termed the base or tangens opposita. The intercepts (lines or plane sections) of the regula with the original plane (or solid) figure are the elements or indivisibles making up the totality of lines (or planes) of the figure. "In the techniques developed by Cavalieri the indivisibles of two or more configurations are associated together in the form of ratios and from these ratios the relations between the areas (or volumes) of the figures themselves are derived. In moving from a relation between the sums of the indivisibles and thus to a relation between the spaces the infinite is employed, but purely in an auxiliary role. "Cavalieri's defence of indivisible methods was based primarily on the idea of a device or artificium which works rather than on any definite or dogmatic views as to the nature of indivisibles and the spaces which they occupy. Nevertheless the classic problem of the nature of the continuum imposed itself upon him and, from the outset, he felt himself obliged to try to meet some of the arguments which he felt might be directed against his methods. He admits that some might well doubt the possibility of comparing an indefinite number of lines, or planes (indefinitae numero lineae, vel plana). When such lines (or planes) are compared, he says, it is not the numbers of such lines which are considered but the spaces which they occupy. Since each space is enclosed it is bounded and one can add to it or take away from it without knowing the actual number of lines or planes. Whether indeed the continuum consists of indivisibles or of something else neither the space nor the continuum is directly measurable. The totalities, or sums, of the indivisibles making up such spaces are, however, always comparable. To establish a relation between the areas of plane figures, or the volumes of solid bodies, it is therefore sufficient to compare the sums of the lines, or planes, developed by any regula. "The foundations for Cavalieri's indivisible techniques rest upon two distinct and complementary approaches which he designates by the terms collective and distributive respectively. In the first, the collective sums, Σ l1 and Σ l2, of the line (or surface) indivisibles for two figures P1 and P2 are obtained separately and then used to establish the ratio of the areas (or volumes) of the figures themselves. If, for example, Σ l1 / Σ l2 = α/β, then P1/P2 =  α/β. This approach was given the most extensive application by Cavalieri and he exploited it with skill and ingenuity to obtain a fascinating collection of new results which he exhibited in the Exercitationes [Geometriae Sex, 1647]. The distributive theory, on the other hand, was developed primarily in order to meet the philosophic objections which Cavalieri felt might be raised against the comparison of indefinite numbers of lines and planes. Fundamental here is Cavalieri's Theorem: the spaces (areas or volumes) of two enclosed figures (plane or solid) are equal provided that any system of parallel lines (or planes) cuts off equal intercepts on each. In brief, if for every pair of corresponding intercepts l1 and l2, l1 = l2, then P1 = P2. An immediate extension follows: if l1/ l2 = α/β, then P1/P2 =  α/β. Cavalieri himself only made use of this method in a limited number of cases where α/β is constant for all such pairs of intercepts. This technique, however, in the hands of Gregoire de Saint-Vincent and others in the seventeenth century, became a valuable means of integration by geometric transformation. Ultimately, whichever of the two methods was applied, Cavalieri was prepared to concede that absolute rigour required in each case an Archimedean proof with completion by reductio ad absurdum" (Baron, The Origins of the Infinitesimal Calculus, 1969, pp. 124-6). "The concept of indivisibles does sometimes show up fleetingly in the history of human thought: for example, in a passage by the eleventh-century Hebrew philosopher and mathematician Abraham bar Hiyya (Savasorda); in occasional speculations -- more philosophical than mathematical -- by the medieval Scholastics; in a passage by Leonardo da Vinci; in Kepler's Nova stereometria doliorum ... [and in] Galileo ... "In Cavalieri we come to a rational systematization of the method of indivisibles, a method that not only is deemed useful in the search for new results but also, contrary to what Archimedes assumed, is regarded as valid, when appropriately modified, for purposes of demonstrating theorems. "At this point a primary question arises: What significance did Cavalieri attribute to his indivisibles? This mathematician, while perfectly familiar with the subtle philosophical questions connected with the problem of the possibility of constituting continuous magnitudes by indivisibles, seeks to establish a method independent of the subject's hypotheses, which would be valid whatever the concept formed in this regard ... It must be further pointed out, according to L. Lombardo Radice, that the Cavalieri view of the indivisibles has given us a deeper conception of the sets: it is not necessary that the elements of the set be assigned or assignable; rather it suffices that a precise criterion exists for determining whether or not an element belongs to the set" (DSB). The Geometria was extensively read and its contents hotly debated. The most serious attack came from Paul Guldin in his Centrobaryca (1635-41). He accused Cavalieri of plagiarising Kepler's Nova Stereometria Doliorum (1615) and Sover's Curvi ac Recti Proportio (1630). More seriously, Guldin "criticized Cavalieri's use of indivisibles in his Geometria indivisibilibus (1635), asserting not only that the method had been taken from Kepler but also that since the number of indivisibles was infinite, they could not be compared with one another. Furthermore, he pointed out a number of fallacies to which the method of indivisibles appeared to lead. In 1647, after the death of Guldin, Cavalieri published Exercitationes geometricae sex, in which he defended himself against the first charge by pointing out that his method differed from that of Kepler in that it made use only of indivisibles, and against the second by observing that the two infinities of elements to be compared are of the same kind" (DSB). Cavalieri (1598-1647) was a Jesuit and professor of mathematics at Bologna. He considered himself a disciple of Galileo, whom he had met through his teacher Benedetto Castelli. It was Galileo who urged Cavalieri to look into problems of the calculus, and who praised him by stating that 'few, if any, since Archimedes, have delved as far and as deep into the science of geometry'. Galileo included Cavalieri's theory in a discussion of the theory of matter in the First Day and in the discussion of accelerated motion in the Third Day of his Discorsi e dimostrazioni matematiche (1638).

        Grotta di Pan

      1653 - Acquaforte, monogrammata in lastra in basso. Foglio 4 della serie di 6 acqueforti che compongono l’intera Veduta della Villa medicea di Pratolino. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con margini, in perfetto stato di conservazione. L’opera fu realizzata dopo la morte di Lorenzo de’ Medici (1648), quando Della Bella decise di rientrare a Firenze e qui riprese la sua attività per la corte realizzando anche vedute di ville e altri luoghi medicei. La villa medicea fu fatta edificare da Francesco I de’ Medici, tra il 1569 e il 1581, per il soggiorno della sua seconda moglie, Bianca Cappello. Fu poi demolita nel 1822 ma il parco in cui sorgeva fu poi acquistato dalla famiglia russa dei Demidoff che fece trasformare il superstite edificio dell’epoca medicea della Paggeria nell’attuale Villa Demidoff. L’incisione raffigura la grotta denominata di Pan. Così Bernardo Sansone Sgrilli nella sua Descrizione della regia villa, fontane et fabriche di Pratolino, del 1742: "Dalla parte destra all’entrare grotta si vede nella testata la fama che mano una tromba d oro se la pone e suona e nell’istesso tempo batte l’ali [ ] Sull’altra testata opposta vi è un satiro figurato per il Dio Pane che suona dolcemente la zampogna composta di sette canne." Magnifico esemplare. Etching, monogrammed in the plate at the bottom. Sheet 4 of the series of 6 etchings that make up the entire View of the Villa Medici Pratolino. Magnificent proof, on contemporary laid paper, with margins, in excellent condition. The work was carried out after the death of Lorenzo de 'Medici (1648), when Della Bella decided to return to Florence, where he resumed his work for the court also realizing views of the Medici villas and other places. The Medici villa was built by Francesco I de 'Medici, between 1569 and 1581, for the stay of his second wife, Bianca Cappello. It was later demolished in 1822 but the park in which it stood was later bought by the Russian family of Demidoff who made the surviving building from the turn of the Medici in the current Paggeria Villa Demidoff.

        Abbildung der Bludigen See Treffens zwischen den Holländern und Engelländern, so drey tage gewehret, Geschehen im Augusto Anno 1653

      Mattheus Merian, Frankfurt - View. Uncolored copper engraving. Image measures 11.5 x 14.5" This incredible circa 1655 view depicts a scene from the important naval battle during the first Anglo-Dutch War. The Battle of Ter Heijde or the Battle of Scheveningen was fought in July 31 1653 (10 August according to the Gregorian calendar) off the Dutch coast between the Commonwealth of England and the United Provinces. This final battle resulted in both sides claiming a victory and eventually led to the 1654 Treaty of Westminster. The scene depicts the Dutch fleet under Maarten Tromp engrossed in heavy battle with the English fleet under George Monck. Although Tromp was killed early in the battle, his death was kept secret to keep up the morale of the Dutch. A legend along the bottom lists the commanders and ships marked on the view. Issued in Merian's "Theatrum Europaeum". The print is in good condition with minor wear and verso repairs along the original folds and edges. Original plate mark is visible. Minor foxing. The Swiss-born Matthäus Merian (1593-1650) studied in Zurich and Paris before moving to Frankfurt, where he worked as an engraver, etcher and publisher. He lived in Basel, the city he was born in, for brief periods during his lifetime. This is a beautiful example of his work.

      Madrid, Morras, 1653. - Petit in-folio. Titre gravé. 9ff. 1 planche. 11ff. 844pp. 44ff. Plein vélin, dos lisse (reliure postérieure). Edition Originale de cet important ouvrage du jurisconsulte Juan de Solórzano y Pereira (1575-1655) qui fut le plus grand spécialiste de son temps du "derecho indiano", partie du droit consacrée aux possessions espagnoles en Amérique du Sud. Cet ouvrage synthétisait la pensée politique de l'auteur à travers 100 emblèmes destinés à l'édification des princes et gravés sur cuivre par l'orfèvre flamand Robert Cordier (mort en 1673). Longtemps négligée par les travaux universitaires qui faisaient la part belle aux livres d'emblèmes français, italiens ou hollandais, la littérature emblématique hispanique ne fut étudiée sérieusement qu'à partir des années 1970; la spécificité du message des livres d'emblèmes espagnols, instruments de formation morale, religieuse et politique mis au service des élites intellectuelles du temps et notamment relayés par la peinture espagnole du Siècle d'Or, fut largement commentée depuis lors. Le présent ouvrage en est l'une des représentations les plus remarquables et il constitue un jalon incontournable dans la production emblématique hispanique. "A la profundidad doctrinal y a la belleza literaria de Juan de Solórzano se une la belleza de los grabados, que trazó y grabó el gran orfebre y grabador flamenco Roberto Cordier, uno entre la cohorte de artistas que enriquecieron los libros españoles del Siglo de Oro. Roberto Cordier, sin duda, inmortalizó su arte con los cien grabados que componen los cien Emblemas Regió-Políticos de Juan de Solórzano" (García Mahiques). Outre les cent emblèmes mentionnés, l'ouvrage contient une magnifique page de titre architecturale gravée et un portrait de l'auteur à pleine page. Bel exemplaire soigneusement établi au 20e siècle. Praz, p. 499. Sabin, 86538. Medina, Bibliotheca Hispano-Americana, 1200. Voir García Mahiques, "Sobre Emblematica" in: "Reseñas. Anales de Literatura Española", n° 6 (1988), pp. 473-476. L'édition de 1651 dont on trouve parfois la notice, fut imaginée à partir d'exemplaires incomplets de la présente édition (dont les approbations sont datées pour la plupart de 1651), mais elle n'existe pas.

Contemporary calf, richly gilt decorated spines in 6 compartments. The second and last French edition of Dalechamp's famous herbal. The first Latin edition was published 1586-87 followed in 1615 by the first French edition. The present edition is the most complete one in the French language. "Dalechamp is considered by some authorities to have been one of the most erudite of the French botanists of the 16th century. His book is a compilation of the botanical knowledge available at that date, and is important as it shows another grouping attemp at a classification of the plants which he described. A number of woodcuts were especially made for the book from plants sent to the author by Lobel, l'Ecluse, and others, but for the most part were taken from previously published works" (Hunt 154). Dalechamp was a student of Rondelet and among his regular correspondents were Conrad Gesner, Joseph Justus Scaliger, Robert Constantin and Jean Fernel.//First two leaves of each volumes have the outer margins somewhat browned, else a fine copy.//Nissen BBI, 447.

        Le pazzie de' savi, overo Il Lambertaccio, poema tragicoeroicomico di Bartolomeo Bocchini.

      Carlo Zenero, Bologna 1653 - In-12° ( 80 X 140 mm ), pp. 299 compreso occhietto e frontespizio + 11 tavole incise su rame. Legatura in pergamena coeva. Il poema è diviso in dodici canti, preceduti, ad eccezione del quarto, da un'incisione in rame. Rara seconda edizione che eccezionalmente risulta illustrata come la prima di Venezia del 1641. Confrontando infatti altri esemplari e il Catalogo della Vinciana questa edizione bolognese venne messa in commercio senza illustrazioni. Una macchia bruna interessa l'angolo superiore di 11 carte. per il resto ottimo. Cat.Vinciana, 2882, Olschki Choix 18335 la citano senza le tavole in rame. L'Historia dei fatti di Antonio Lambertacci nobile e potente cittadino bolognese pubblicata nel 1632, sembra aver suggerito al Bocchini l'idea di un poema eroico che egli giunse ad annunziare con il titolo di Tricomanni. Ma, mutato parere, egli si accinse alla composizione del Lambertaccio, nella cui prefazione sono esposte le ragioni che lo spinsero a scrivere un poema eroicomico. In quella stessa prefazione l'autore ci informa che ha voluto dare al suo poema l'appellativo di tragicoeroicomico perché vi mescola il lacrimevole, l'eroico e il ridicolo. Ma il tragico è, in verità, soltanto un motivo accessorio poiché si riduce alla poco patetica morte dell'eroe, Antonio Lambertazzi, e alla breve vicenda degli infelici amori di Alberto e Virginia e di Bonifazio e Imelda. Quell'appellativo non denota quindi una deviazione del Lambertaccio da quel che intendiamo per poema eroicomico, quel genere la cui paternità, sappiamo, é del Tassoni. E alla Secchia Rapita il lambertaccio si accosta più di altri poemi eroicomici sia nella struttura esterna di 12 canti, sia nella narrazione delle lotte tra Bolognesi e Modenesi, che culminano nella sconfitti di questi ultimi nella battaglia della Fossalta del maggio 1249. Il poema del Bocchini però consta di due parti distinte, poché solo i primi 4 canti narrano le lotte tra Petroni e Germignani, mentre gli altri 8 canti trattano delle discordie intestine sorte in Bologna dalle rivalità delle due famiglie dei Lambertazzi e dei Geremei. Semplice è la genesi del poema come appare dalle parole stesse dell'autore: .mi son messo a scrivereper trascorrere poeticamente l'ore noise. Io scrivo non per scienza alcuna ma per mia semplice naturalezza e isfogamento del genio. Domenico Ortisi, Italica Vol. 32, No. 4 (Dic., 1955), pp. 248-258.

Good copy. ----Carli-Favaro 52 (241); Cinti 301 (155); De Caro 82; Wing G291A, Houzeau-L. 9225; Caspar, Kepler 92. - SECOND EDITION OF THIS IMPORTANT COLLECTION OF SCIENTIFIC WRITINGS (first edition of the collection in this form and 2nd edition of the Institutio Astronomica overall). Gassendi's Institutio astronomica, first published in 1647, outlines the various competing models of the cosmos, notably the Ptolemaic, the Copernican, and the intermediate system invented by Tycho Brahe. This is followed by Galileo's Sidereus nuncius, in which he outlined his observations made by telescope; first published in 1610, this constitutes the third edition of this seminal work. The volume is completed by Kepler's Dioptrice, first published in 1611, which is an effective companion piece to the Sidereus nuncius: Kepler had been researching optics since 1600 but it was the publication of Galileo's work which spurred him to complete his treatise on lenses. It contains the first explanation of myopia and the first design for an inverted astronomical telescope. Very Good.

        De Monarchia Hispanica. Editio novissima, aucta & emendata ut praefatio ad lectorem indicat.

      Amsterdam: Louis Elzevir, 1653. 24mo., engraved title, all edges gilt; in nineteenth-century full red morocco, gilt arms of Henry J.B. Clements on front cover, spine banded and gilt. Attractive small Elzevir edition of this utopian work by the famous Dominican friar Campanella. Chapter XXXI (pp. 274-288) is explicitly concerned with discoveries and settlements in the New World, and he recommends building forts at the mouths of all rivers and harbours "lest the English should break in and bring heresy."Written in 1598 or 1599, and rewritten soon after, this work prophesies the coming of a universal Christian monarchy (said to be the fifth such great monarchy in history) by the Spanish King. Curiously, it was first published in German in 1620, translated, probably by Besold, from Campanella's original manuscript: such an involved publishing history is not unlike many books in Campanella's oeuvre, testament to his unfailing trouble with ecclesiastical authorities; orthodoxy was not his strong point. The first English edition was published soon after this Elzevir edition as A Discourse touching the Spanish Monarchy (London, 1654); an Italian edition did not appear until 1840.Campanella's most famous work is his "City of the Sun", which was first published in 1623 but had been written during his long imprisonment by the Inquisition for sedition and heresy. The City of the Sun was a 'regimented, highly centralised, theocratic society characterized by breeding of human beings in accordance with science, subordination of individuals to the state, and absence of private property' (Gibson, St. Thomas More). It was an early and highly influential text in the development of the utopian genre, written by an author whose twenty-seven year stretch in prison seems to be a record for utopian writers. As Simon Ryan points out in The cartographic eye, although published 'long after many voyages south of the equator, Campanella's story can still utilise the easy transference from antipodes as opposite to antipodes as perverse... '. A very attractive copy.

      - This edition not in Atabey; Blackmer; KVK; NCC; Saalmink; Tiele; WorldCat. A surprisingly rare re-issue of the first Dutch edition of D'Arvieux's Voyage, translated by Gerard Kuipers. Dressed in local costume, D'Arvieux travelled widely in the Levant and was well-versed in Arabic, Turkish, Persian, Hebrew and Syriac languages. He resided in Sidon (or Saïda) from 1653 to 1664, when he was sent on a mission to the Arabs of Mount Carmel, which is narrated in the present work. The account includes a general description of the traditions and customs of nomadic tribes and is illustrated with 3 fine plates. The first edition was edited and posthumously published by Jean La Roque in 1717. The present Dutch edition is a re-issue with a new title-page of the 1780 edition, printed from the same setting of type, and apparently unrecorded.Binding with some light wear, otherwise in very good condition.

        A Treatise of Fruit-Trees, Shewing the manner of Grafting, Setting, Pruning, and Ordering of them in all respects

      [L. Lichfield] for Thomas Robinson, Oxford 1653 - Engraved title, engraved by J Goddard. [26, including title], 97, [1, blank]; [12], 41, [1, blank]pp (with errors in pagination as issued). Woodcut initials and head- and tail-pieces, second part with separate title within typographical border. Contemporary calf, covers ruled in blind. Provenance: Cornelius J. Hauck (bookplate) First edition of a noted early English work on fruit trees. This work "contains much useful information on the planting and care of trees. Of particular interest is a section headed 'Errors Discovered.' Here the author exposes a number of the old superstitions to be found in garden literature and also draws attention to some errors practied by gardeners" (Henrey). Austen first came to Oxford in about 1646; by 1659, he had built a house, orchard and cider factory between Queen Street and Shoe Lane in downtown Oxford. By the time of his death in 1676, Austen owned several properties in Oxford dedicated to his nurseries and orchards. He became a reader at the Bodeleian Library and although he spent considerable time researching on botanical subjects, his writings all bear evidence of extensive experimentation. Austen would become known especially for his skills at grafting and cider making. ESTC R12161; Henrey 5; Wing A-4238. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Relation des Progrez de la Foy au Royaume de la Cochinchine és années 1646. & 1647. Envoiée au R.P. Général de la Compagnie de Jésus

      Paris: Sebastien Cramoisy and Gabriel Cramoisy, 1653. Hardcover. Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. [1]ff, (10), 139 pp, (1). Bound in old vellum, internally perfectly clean and fresh, an excellent copy. Rare first and only edition of two Jesuit letters from the province of Cochin-China, written in the years immediately following the expulsion of the Jesuit's most powerful Southeast Asian operative, Alexander de Rhodes. Alexander Rhodes, 'Apostle of Vietnam' (Lach and Van Kley III: 1266) unfortunately attracted the enmity of the King of Cochin-China and was eventually expelled in 1645. He was replaced by Metello Saccano and Carlo della Rocca, who apparently managed to win the king over "with a gift of exquisite pearls". A Sicilian, Saccano had learned the Annamese language from Rhodes himself before replacing the legendary Jesuit father. The mission in Cochin-China appears to have suffered much hardship under the capricious anti-Christianism of King Nyguyen Phuc-Lan (d. 1648). The letters here cover the years 1646 and 1647. One of the most significant events of 1646 for Saccano was the gaining of permission for Jesuits and their catechists to reside in Cochin-China at all; this, however, was preceeded by a period of renewed persecution, the martyrdom of two converts, etc. Saccano also records that Rhodes attempted to return to his mission in Cochin-China that year but was disuaded by his fellows - "le Roy estant encore tout boüillant de colere contre nous, & contre tous les Chrestiens". However, two other missionaries did suceed in arriving from Macao. All in all Saccano delivers exactly what his home readership is expecting - plaintive tales of terrible martydoms, uplifting tales of faith in the face of cruel idolators, and so on. According to his second letter, however, 1647 was a relatively peaceful year, unravaged by the usual warfare with the Tongkingese in the north. Foreign ships mercifully escaped pillaging by the predatory Dutch, and the King was far better behaved than in previous years, ordering only a modest massacre of some 50 of his subjects. Saccano is especially proud of reports he has had detailing the kindness of his converts to Portuguese sailors arriving at port in Cochin-China, and confirms that he has had much success in converting peasants to the true faith, including two 'Bonzes', or Buddhist monks. Several miracles are recorded, including the deliverance of a villager possessed by the Devil. Nevertheless, three Christians are reported to have been martyred. Metello Saccano was later sent to Japan, where he died in 1662. OCLC reports Cornell, the NYPL, Berkeley, Kansas, and the Peabody. * DeBacker-Sommervogel VII: 360; cf also Lach & Van Kley, "The Nyguyen and the Chrsitians", pp 1266-76 in Asia in the Making of Europe, Vol III.
