I: (14) ff., 48, 48 pp., (4) ff., 160 pp., (2) ff., 68, 127 pp., (2) ff., 264, 43 pp., including allegorical frontispiece signed Stefano della Bella, Villamoena portrait of Galileo, and folding engraved plate of military compass. II: (1) f., 60 pp., (8) ff., 104 pp., (2) ff., 105-156, 48 pp., (4) ff., 179, (1) pp., (1) ff., 53-106 pp., (1) f., 103-126 pp., (4) ff., 238 [i.e., 242] pp., (3) ff. Woodcut initials and diagrams. Bound in contemporary vellum, title written in ink on spine and on lower edges; usual mild discoloration and light foxing on scattered leaves; several quires browned as usual. Generally a fine, wide-margined and fresh copy. First collected edition of Galileo's works, appearing only a year after his death and of great interest for his 17th-century reception: this was the edition in which Newton and later eminent scientists read their Galileo. Included here are not only most of the seminal pieces written and published over a lifetime, including the Starry Messenger of 1610, the first work of modern observational astronomy, but additional publications and letters by both supporters and antagonists. Together in one work they offer a veritable panorama of scientific activity in Italy during the first half of the seventeenth century, and are critical for the history of the formation of Galileo's text.The Opera contains many unpublished or little-known items provided to the editors by Vincenzo Viviani, Galileo's friend and disciple. Among them are a number of Galileo's hitherto unpublished letters and experiments and the La Bilancetta, his first scientific work, written in 1586. Both the Dialogo and the letter to Christina di Lorena were censored and are, therefore, omitted. A contemporary hand noted on the final flyleaf of Vol. 2, "La lettura de discorsi legati insieme è interdetta" ("The reading of the discourses bound together is forbidden.").* Cinti 132; Riccardi I.518-19.

        Istoria e Dimostrationi intorno alle Macchie Solari e Loro Accidenti comprese in tre lettere Scritte all'... Marco Velseri.. Si aggiungono nel fine le lettere, e Disquisitioni del finto Apelle. (History and Demonstrations Concerning Sunspots and their Properties).

      Bologna, HH. del Dozza, 1655. 4to. Later marbled boards. Gilt lettering to spine. Fronthinge weakening. Large, partlu uncut copy. 7,(1),156 pp. Many textfigs. and textdrawings, including 20 pages depicting the famous sunspot-observations. Internally clan and fine.. Scarce second edition, presumably as a SEPARATE ISSUE of the "Opere", 1655-56. In this work Galilei published for the first time his discovery of the Sunspots, and their explanation as contiguous, and he also here for the first time announced his acceptance of the Copernican system, leading to the Interdict of 1616."Galieo's Letters on Sunspots was published at Rome in 1613 under the auspices of the Lincean Academy. In this book Galileo spoke out decisively for the Copernican system for the first time in print. In the same book he found a place for his first published mention of the concept of conservation of angular momentum and an associated inertial concept. During its composition he had taken pains to determine the theological status of the idea of incorruptibility of the heavens, finding that this was regarded by churchmen as an Aristotelian rather than a Catholic dogma. But attacks against Galileo and his followers soon appeared in ecclesiastical quarters. These came to a head with a denunciation from the pulpit in Florence late in 1614."(DSB)

        The compleat clark, and scriveners guide Containing exact draughts and presidents of all manner of assurances and instruments now in use

      London: Pr. by T.R. for H. Twyford, N. Brookes, J. Place, & R. Wingate 4to (22.5 cm, 8.9"). Add. engr. t.-p., [8], 664, [16 (index)] pp.. 1655 Uncommon first edition of this guide to conveyancing for the 17th-century legal practitioner. The additional engraved title-page (signed by Fross) gives the title "The Conveyancers Light or Exact Presidents for All Manner of Instruments and Conveyances as They Have Occasionally Beene Composed by the Advice of Many Eminent Lawyers Both Antient & Moderne"; the bulk of the volume is dedicated to providing actual examples of documents such as "a Covenant to suffer a Recovery of Copy-hold Land by a Plaint in a Court Baron, after the order of a Recovery at the Common Law" (p. 321) as well as texts for wills, warrants, debt collections, "very good" mortgages, etc. ESTC and WorldCat locate only 10 U.S. institutional holdings of this useful and important reference work — now, also, an interesting work of social history. Evidence of Readership: An early hand has crossed out the "and Scriveners" line on the title-page and added "conveyancers," similarly altering the title at the head of the first chapter. Two instances of early inked annotations in outer margins and one additional text supplied in an early hand at the bottom of the last text page; one phrase lined through and a few underlined. Provenance: Front pastedown with bookplate of Eric Poole, almost certainly the law professor who published English Property Law. 19th-century half vellum and marbled paper–covered sides, spine with gilt-stamped red leather title-label and gilt-ruled raised bands; paper slightly faded and rubbed, back cover with paper repaired along spine and marbling pattern painted ( with impressive care) onto repair. Pages age-toned, with portions notably darkened and spotted; first and last sections with edges tattered, pinhole wormwork or slim tracking in lower margin of most leaves, and one leaf with short tear from upper margin touching header. Front pastedown with bookplate as above.

Numerose incisioni geometriche e tecniche nel testo. Al primo volume una tavola in grande formato raffigurante il "Compasso geometrico e militare". Eccellente esemplare, solo lievi tarlature ai dorsi. Il primo volume comprende una "Vita di Galilei", "le Operazioni del Compasso geometrico, e militare"; la "Difesa di Galileo contro alle calunnie e imposture di Baldassar Capra milanese", il "Discorso intorno alle cose, che stanno in su l'Acqua, o che in quella si muovono", "Della scienza meccanica", "La Bilancetta", il "Trattato del modo di misurar colla vista".

Si tratta della terza edizione delle opere complete di Galilei (le precedenti erano del 1655 e del 1718), ma la prima comprendente il "Dialogo dei massimi sistemi", l'opera che, dapprima approvata dalla Chiesa, condusse poi Galileo all'abiura dinnanzi al Tribunale dell'Inquisizione, e che non fu rimossa dall'"Index Librorum Prohibitorum" fino al 1835. L'Opera è a cura dell'abate Giuseppe Toaldo (Marostica, 1719 - 1798), docente di astronomia nell'ateneo patavino. La stampa fu resa possibile dalla autorizzazione concessa da Papa Benedetto XIV. Straordinaria "summa" del pensiero galileiano, assai rara da trovare completa ed in condizioni più che buone.

The Blaeu family firm was founded by Willem Janzoon Blaeu (1571-1638) in 1596. He was eventually joined by his sons, Cornelius (1616-1648) and Joannes (1596-1673). The firm became the most productive cartographic establishment in the Netherlands until it was destroyed by fire in 1672. The elder Blaeu initiated the great series of atlases that culminated in the "Atlas Maior". Koeman 2:521A.

        VIRGINIA.

      [Frankfurt. ]. 1655 - Engraved map, 14 3/4 x 12 3/4 inches. Minor dust soiling. Single vertical fold line through center. Very good. This edition of Smith's Virginia map, with German text, first appeared in Gottfriedt's NEWE WELT in 1655, after the 1612 original edition. A handsome edition of this famous map, it shows all of the Chesapeake Bay from the Virginia Capes north to the present Maryland-Pennsylvania line, the eastern shore, and the waters of the major Virginia and Maryland rivers from the James northward. In the upper left corner is a vignette of Powhatan in a hut, taken from De Bry, while along the right edge is a full-length portrait of an Indian with a long bow. Both illustrations appeared in the first state of the map. Smith's map of Virginia became the paramount cartographic reference for the early settlement of Virginia and the Chesapeake region. "One of the most important printed maps ever produced, Captain John Smith's representation of Virginia [is] based on his explorations of the Chesapeake Bay in 1607 and 1608.The accuracy and detail far surpassed any other depiction of North America at the time it was made. Smith's VIRGINIA served as the prototype for maps of the area for over fifty years" - Pritchard & Taliaferro (about an earlier state of the map). An attractive and, compared with the rare first state, accessible edition of this fundamental map. PRITCHARD & TALIAFERRO 5.

Fourth edition of the magnum opus of "one of the founders of medical jurisprudence" (Garrison/Morton 1720, ed. 1621-61). "Paolo Zacchia (1584-1659) was the personal physician of the popes Innocent X and Alexander VII, legal advisor to the Rota Romana and head of the health system in the Papal States. His most important work, written in Latin, is entitled "Quaestiones Medico-Legales" and was published in 9 volumes between 1621 and 1651. Even after Zacchia's death comprehensive reprints were published at several places up to the late 18th century. Zacchia covered all the medicolegal issues of his time including the problem of "malpractice" and medical ethics. He is rightly considered an outstanding representative of his profession, whose "Quaestiones Medico-Legales" gave legal medicine its name." (K. Händel in: Arch Kriminol. 2003 Sep-Oct;212(3-4):65f). - Browned, partially with weak waterstains in the margins, index with traces of worms in inner margin, not affecting the text.

        Museum Wormianum, seu Historia rerum Rariorum, tam Naturalium, quam Artificialium, tam Domesticarum, quam Exoticarum, quae Hafniae Danorum in aedibus authoris servantur.

      Lugduni Batavorum, I. Elsevirium, 1655. Folio (350 x 220mm). pp. (12), 389, (3), with woodcut title-vignette and 139 woodcuts and 13 engravings in the text. Contemporary calf, gilt ornamented spine in 7 compartments, hinges split but firm (label on spine partly gone, a bit rubbed). First edition but without the portrait and the engraved double-page plate of the 'Museum Wormianum. The complete text with all the woodcuts and engravings of this beautifully produced catalogue of the most important North European 'Wunderkammer'. The first four chapters of the work are devoted to mineralogy. "Worm's collection took shape between 1620 and his death in 1654. His last great work was the folio volume 'Museum Wormianum' printed in Leiden and Amsterdam and issued the year after his death. It has secured his name as one of the founders not only of Danish but of European museums. The typographical model of the book was Piso and Markgraf's publication of the 'Historia Naturalis Brasiliae' from which some of the illustrations were also taken ... but the best of them were made in Copenhagen from drawings made under his own supervision... The arrangement of the material followed the principles of Imperato and Calceolari (Impey & MacGregor, The Origins of Museums, p. 123). /"There were some mouth-watering items in this early museum, including a Great Auk which Worm had once kept as a pet... The year after he died a folio volume describing his treasure was published and ten of its pages are devoted to shells, his nomenclature and classification being taken from the works of Gessner, Aldrovandi and Rondelet, the principal divisions of univalves, bivalves and turbinates being fundamentally Aristotelian" (Dance 14). The editing of the present work was done by Worm's son Willum and the collection passed, on Worm's death, to the Danish royal cabinet. One leaf with small loss of paper at the outer margin. A fine copy.//Dance 358; Nissen ZBI, 4473; Wilson, The history of mineral collecting p. 199.

        [In Greek]: OMEROU ILIAS KAÍ ODYSSEIA. [and] HOMERI ILIAS & ODYSSEA, ET IN EANDEM SCHOLIA & INTERPRETATIO DIDYMI

      Lugduni Batavorum: Apud Franciscum Hackium, 1655. First Schrevelius-edited edition n. Hardcover. 248 x 171 mm (9 3/4 x 6 3/4"). [16], 716; 536, [44] index pp. Two volumes. Edited by Cornelius Schrevelius. First Schrevelius-edited edition. HANDSOME 18TH CENTURY RED STRAIGHT-GRAIN MOROCCO, covers framed by lovely Neoclassical roll enclosed by double gilt rules, rosette cornerpieces, raised bands flanked by plain gilt rules, spine panels with central gilt medallion containing a narcissus, gilt titling, turn-ins with gilt Greek key roll, purple endpapers, all edges gilt. Engraved allegorical title in volume I; woodcut printer's device on title in volume II. Text in Greek and Latin. Front pastedown with engraved armorial bookplate of Joannis Petri de Villeneuve. Lang A-17; Willems 1202; Brunet III, 272-73; Moss I, 486; Schweiger p. 158; Dibdin II, 53 (4th ed.) Spines uniformly a bit darkened (with slight dulling of some gilt), a hint of rubbing to extremities, very minor spotting to covers, but the original handsome unrestored bindings generally in fine condition, the leather lustrous, and with no significant wear (the joints almost entirely unworn). Vague browning in the (ample) margins, isolated trivial rust or wax spots, other minor imperfections, but the text fresh, clean, and generally quite pleasing. This is an excellent bilingual edition of Homer's "Iliad" and "Odyssey," attractively printed and offered here in elegantly restrained period red morocco. Moss declares that this edition "is in great request among the curious, and fine copies are very difficult to be procured." Lang tells us that the printing "is notable for its fine layout and presentation of text, translation, and scholia." The Greek text dominates the page, with the smaller Latin translation to its right, and the notes and commentary by pseudo-Didymus and Schrevelius in smaller Greek type below it and clearly marked by line number. As Dibdin and Moss note, Harwood calls this edition "beautiful and correct." That this layout was enviable is evidenced by subsequent imitations (i. e., the Joshua Barnes edition of 1711 and Samuel Clarke's of 1729-32). The scholia of the "Iliad" are reprinted here for the first time since the Aldine edition of 1517. A physician as well as a classical scholar, the Dutch linguist Cornelius Schrevel (1615-84) edited a number of Greek and Latin authors and is best known for his "Lexicon Manuele Graeco-Latinum et Latino-Graecum," published in 1654. That dictionary was printed by Hackius, who, as Lang notes, printed "some copies" of this present edition of Homer under his own imprint, with the bulk of the printing issued simultaneously by the Elzevier family in Amsterdam. The Neoclassical motifs on the attractive binding are in harmony with those of the engraved title, both complementing the enduring ancient Greek narratives.

Opera insigne e uno dei più bei figurati del '600 italiano, che contiene quanto di meglio era conosciuto all' epoca in fatto di fortificazioni. L' autore (1579-1638) nativo di Crema, fu uno dei più grandi ingegneri militari del suo tempo, ricco di pratica e di cultura, morì barbaramente trucidato e si pensa per l' invidia che suscitò il suo singolare ingegno. Splendida edizione, la stessa della prima del 1624, in quanto come spiega Riccardi e Marini "Biblioteca Di Fortificazioni" le edizioni del 1630 e 1655 hanno solo al frontis le date e i tipografi cambiati, ottenuti raschiando la lastra di rame. Molto rara, manca alle bibliografie che di seguito elenchiamo e alle quali rimandiamo per confronti: Bm. Stc XVII Cent. Italian, Gamba, Cokle, Choix, Piantanida, Pollak, e michel-Michel. Manca purtroppo il ritratto all' inizio e la tavola 18. Ben 11 incisioni sono a doppia pagina, tutte sono numerate la prima è datata 1624 e firmata da odoardo Fialetti pittore e acquafortista bolognese scolaro di G.B. Cremonini e studiò in Venezia sotto il Tintoretto. Esemplare veramente bellissimo, nitido e a grandi margini con barbe e incisioni in ottima tiratura. * Riccardi II 515; * Marini p.71; * Manzi "Architetti e Ingegneri Militari" n° 119; * Dayala p.123.[f72] [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Compleat Ambassador: Or Two Treaties of the Intended Marriage of Qu: Elizabeth of Glorious Memory;

      London: by Tho: Newcomb, &c, 1655. 1 vol, (viii)441pp. (iii), small folio, with the engraved frontis by Faythorne of Burleigh, Elizabeth and Walsingham, frontis expertly laid down at some earlier date, title-page printed in red and black. Bound in full early calf over cords, neatly rebacked, gilt lettered red and black leather spine labels, hinges fine, text clean and bright throughout, overall a VERY GOOD sound copy. Queen Elizabeth I is shown here between two of her closest advisors: Lord High Treasurer Lord Burghley on the left, and Secretary of State Sir Francis Walsingham on the right. Queen Elizabeth came to the throne in 1558 and ruled until 1603. Her reign saw a sharp increase in the exploration of foreign lands. It was Burghley who openly questioned the Spanish and Portuguese claims to South America, advising the Queen on securing a foothold in America as well.
