Bartolomeo BISCAINO (Genova 1632 circa - 1657)
Acquaforte, 1655 circa, firmata in lastra in basso a sinistra. Esemplare nel secondo stato di due, con l'indirizzo dell'editore Daman aggiunto. Sebbene considerato un secondo stato per la presenza della firma dell'editore, la presenza di un primo è solamente supposta, in quanto non sono conosciute prove. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana non identificata, rifilata al rame, leggere abrasioni in alto al centro restaurate, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. Etching, 1655 circa, signed at lower left. A very good impression of the second state of two, with the Daman imprint. Trimmed to the platemark, a small scraped area at the upper right, generally in very good conditions. Bartsch 18.

This was to remain the standart form of Japan until the eighteenth century and although replaced by the maps of Reland and Kaempfer it is in its outline closer to the true shape of Japan than either of these or indeed any printed map before the nineteenth century. It was compiled by Father Martino Martini, an Italian Jesuit, and appears in Blaeu´s Atlas Sinensis, the first European atlas of China. Of the two general maps one if of Japan. Father Martini (1614-1661) went to China as a young man and became the Superior at Hang-Chow. In 1651 he left for Rome but took three years on an eventful journey home. His arrival was described by Blaeu: "The Reverend Father Martinus Martinius comes from India, and brings with him the figurations and descriptions of the Empire of China. He insists that I print and publish these. Therefore i leave off all other things for the time being, in order to push forward this work "".

GASSENDI, Pierre (Petro Gassendo) (1592-1655).
The Hague: Adrian Vlacq, 1655. The Hague:: Adrian Vlacq, 1655., 1655. Sm. 4to. [viii], 300, [16] pp. Engraved frontis. portrait (facing p.1), index. Title printed in red and black. Original vellum. Early two-line ink inscription facing title, "in an old hand", so-to-speak. Minor pencil marginalia throughout. Very good. Third and most complete edition. A tremendously important biography of Nicolas-Claude Fabri de Peiresc by the Astronomer and biographer Pierre Gassendi, who Peiresc supported financially from 1634-1637. Peiresc was an accomplished astronomer himself, scientist politician and a brilliant collector, corresponded with Galileo and Tommaso Campanella, both of whom he defended when they were arrested by the inquisition. "Through this book Peiresc and his work came to be known to many who had neither visited his collections and library . . . nor exchanged letters with him" - DSB. An English translation, titled The Mirrour of True Nobility and Gentility: Being the Life of the Renowned Nicolaus Claudius Fabricius, Lord of Pieresk, Senator of the Parliament at Aix, was released in 1657. Gassendi, apart from his significant researches in the field of astronomy, wrote a number of biographies and philosophical texts, and was a frequent opponent of Descartes, with whom he disagreed on the possibility of certain knowledge.

DANCKERTS, Justus (1635-1701)
[Amsterdam: Justus Danckerts, ca. 1655]. Engraved map (Image:18 1/4 x 22 in.; 46.4 x 56 cm. Sheet: 19 x 23 1/4 in.; 48.3 x 59 cm), uncolored, depicting domestic and wild animals, a Native American fort, and canoes, figural cartouche flanked by a female and male Native American incorporating a view of "Nieuw Amsterdam op't Eylant Manhattans." BINDING/CONDITION: Loosely laid on sturdy card stock, enclosed in mylar. A few short tears, most neatly repaired, just touching image. A FINE IMPRESSION. (65B1B) FIRST EDITION, FIRST STATE, before the names of Philadelphia and Pennsylvania were added, and before the course of the Delaware was updated. According to Stokes, the first state of Danckerts' map depicts the same period as Visscher's map of the same title (1651-1655). Stokes describes numerous differences between the Visscher and Danckerts versions, and ultimately concludes that "the N.J. Visscher in its earlier form at least, antedates the earlier Danckers" Burden dates the map later than Stokes or Tooley; he presents three possible periods during which this map could have been produced: the early 1660s, when Danckerts joined the family business and tensions were growing between the English and the Dutch; in 1666, after the death of Danckerts' brother; or following the recapture of New Netherlands by the Dutch in 1673. Burden postulates that it was most likely produced in 1673, "as the.first state is of some rarity, and the second not being produced until c. 1684." PROVENANCE: Evelyn and Eric P.

Anonymus, Aquarellist des 17. Jahrhunderts.
Slowakei, um 1655. Querfolio (29 x 40 cm). Reversibel unter Passepartout gefaßt (nebenstehende Abbildung mit ganzem Blatt). Oberhalb der Darstellung in brauner Tinte bezeichnet „Factum in Paego Jahodnik sito ad oppidum Szent Marton in Co(mi)t(a)tu Thurociensi Anno 1655 die 30 April". Auf Papier mit Wasserzeichen „Doppeladler". Sehr gering fleckig, mit vertikaler, jedoch kaum merklicher Mittelfalte und leichten Knitterspuren. Isgesamt vorzüglich erhalten. Zeitgenössische Darstellung einer beängstigenden, den Betrachter seinerseits beschauenden tierischen Missgeburt und offenbar von einem Augenzeugen angefertigt, da das Objekt noch „frisch" erscheint und kaum Verwesungsspuren aufweist (die Anfertigung nach einem Präparat ist insofern unwahrscheinlich, als daß der Entstehungsort recht weit ab liegt von zur Haltbarmachung fähigen Institutionen der Zeit und in einem solchen Fall deutliche Verwesengsspuren erkennbar sein müßten). Das schwarz-rote Auge („Oculus") und der übergroße Nabel („Umbilicus") sind noch einmal besonders gekennzeichnet. Aus genannten Gründen (Verderblichkeit der Überreste der oft totgeborenen oder aber nicht lange lebensfähigen Individuen) und aufgrund ihres von der Ordnung der Natur, vom geregelten Plan der Schöpfung abweichenden Erscheinens gehören Darstellungen von tierischen und menschlichen Mißgeburten zu den begehrtesten Objekten der naturwissenschaftlichen Curiositas der Neuzeit. Sie bevölkerten die wissenschaftlichen Journale der Zeit in überproportionaler Zahl.

[Garcia Hidalgo, Andres]
Granada, Spain: 8-3/4 by 13 inches (22 by 33 cm). Dated 19 October 1655, and addressed to Don Phelipe (King Felipe IV). 89 parchment leaves with a final paper leaf. With a full-page allegorical miniature of Christ on the cross; a full-page coat of arms; an elaborate opening page with a nature scene in brown ink; a 6-line drawing of a farm scene in brown ink (12v); and 47 decorated initials with fine drawings in brown ink, most five or six lines, with a few smaller. The text is written in an attractive, neat calligraphy throughout. This manuscript attests to the nobility of Andres Garcia Hidalgo, who had died by the time the decades' long process of obtaining the official approval was done, and of his son, Juan Garcia Hidalgo. The Garcia Hidalgos lived in the village of Puente de Don Gonzalo, now Puente Genil, in Cordova, Andalucia, Spain. This carta executoria is recorded in Barea Lopez, Heraldica y genealogia en el suroeste de Cordoba (Ss. XIII-XIX), vol. 2, p. 311 and Extracto de los expidientes de la Orden de Carlos 3o by Vicente Cardenas, p. 65. An attractive Spanish Renaissance hidalguia manuscript, with very good pen-and-ink miniatures throughout and clear calligraphy. In a contemporary red velvet over thin wood boards; two silver clasps; red silk protective sheet between the title page and the coat of arms. Overall, very nice condition, with the velvet worn through at the edges; some cockling and cracking to the illuminated pages, one of which seems to have had a figure painted out at an early date.

This was to remain the standart form of Japan until the eighteenth century and although replaced by the maps of Reland and Kaempfer it is in its outline closer to the true shape of Japan than either of these or indeed any printed map before the nineteenth century. It was compiled by Father Martino Martini, an Italian Jesuit, and appears in Blaeu´s Atlas Sinensis, the first European atlas of China. Of the two general maps one if of Japan. Father Martini (1614-1661) went to China as a young man and became the Superior at Hang-Chow. In 1651 he left for Rome but took three years on an eventful journey home. His arrival was described by Blaeu: "The Reverend Father Martinus Martinius comes from India, and brings with him the figurations and descriptions of the Empire of China. He insists that I print and publish these. Therefore i leave off all other things for the time being, in order to push forward this work "".

Wittebergae, Typis Jobi Wilhelmi Finceli, Impensis Heraed. D. Tobiae Mevii, et Elardi Schumacher, 1655. in-16. 9ff. 531pp. (i.e.533). Plein veau, dos à nerfs orné (reliure de l'époque, coiffe supérieure arasée, charnières frottées). Edition Originale très rare de cet ouvrage d'une grande importance dans l'histoire de l'étude de la physiologie de l'odorat. Découvreur de la muqueuse pituitaire (aussi appelée "membrane de Schneider") qui tapisse les cavités nasales et qui contient les cellules responsables de l'odorat, Konrad-Victor Schneider (1610-1680) avait rédigé le présent ouvrage après avoir conduit des expériences sur des vaches, des chiens et des oies, pour déterminer le siège du sens olfactif. Il y démontre notamment que les cavités nasales sont séparées de la masse cérébrale, et que les sécrétions sont produites par leur tissu vasculaire et non par l'écoulement de liquide cérébro-spinal. Papier uniformément bruni, comme toujours. Très bon exemplaire relié à l'époque, probablement en France.

Wilkins John
1655. Condition: Very Good. Very rare book, here complete his frontispiece with Copernicus, Kepler, and Galileo. ' The work is for the general public rather than to the experts on the subject, and its purpose is to popularize the vision of the universe from Copernicus, Kepler, and Galileo. The main argument is that the Moon is not a shiny disc, but rather a world with a landscape like that of the Earth. Of course, Wilkins is not 1 to advance such a theory; for example Galilee mentioned in a similar way. Perhaps more surprisingly, he thinks the Moon is a habitable planet and predicted that one day the journey she will be possible. Here also Wilkins is not 1 to make this suggestion, but it is typical of the way he thinks, allowing his mind to wander in the middle of ideas that others would have found too unconventional to consider.' In - bound 12 full parchment (connected and washed in 1861 according to a note on the guard). According to a note in the 1st contre-plat, the book was "washed and connected in 1861". Its coverage is full parchment, probably recovery: scraps of handwriting are still perfectly visible. This technique, which is quite common in the 19th and early 20th century sometimes produces imperfect results. Here, however, the binding was carefully conducted and suffers no default. Title piece: frontispiece, 8 pages nonpaged containing the title and the reader, 269 pages for the text of the first part, 3 pages nonpaged for the table, 2 pages not paged for the title, 284 pages for text, 3 pages not paged to the proposal table tions.
