GALGEMAYR, G
Augsburg: Weh, 1655. Hardcover. Very Good. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. 4to., (4) ff., 128 pp., with four folding plates; lightly toned. Bound in contemporary stiff vellum, with title written in ink on spine in a neat hand. Ownership inscription on title-page, some careful underlining and annotations in a neat contemporary hand; lightly toned. Excellent.Rare edition and a fine copy of Galgemayr's very influential text describing the construction & use of two instruments, a proportional compass and a lineal compass for the measurement of volumes and surfaces. The former, closely resembling Galileo's proportional compass, was a popular calculating device used throughout the 17th C. The work was first published in 1615 and re-printed in 1626, 1633, and 1654 with modifications. All editions, however, are very rare owing to the book's practical utility. The copy offered here is enriched by annotations that indicate that it was used as a workbook. These are unusually careful and neat, and a few contain calculations that do not appear derived from the exercises; possibly they are calculations for actual (e.g. real life) situations for which the chapters are being consulted as a model or guide. Together with Uttenhofer's Circinus geometricus (see below), the work provides a vivid picture of a developing technology that ultimately became the modern hand-held calculating machine. * I.

Taylor, Jeremy
London: James Flesher for R. Royston 8vo (19 cm, 7.5"). A?-Z8Aa?-Zz8Aaa4; engr. t.-p., [46], 448, [8], 449?-690 (i.e., 746), [6 (index)] pp. (pagination incorrect); 1 fold. plt.. 1655 Second edition of the "Unum necessarium," following the first of 1653, followed by the first edition of the "Further Explication." Jeremy Taylor (1613?-67), a High Church divine and chaplain to Charles I, was well known as a theologian and one of the school of Caroline Divines who brilliantly systematized Anglican theology in the 17th century. The first of these present works caused him some difficulty, as some of its arguments were widely considered unorthodox and antidoctrinal; the Further Explication was Taylor's attempt to clarify his position. The engraved frontispiece by P. Lombart depicts Jesus in shepherd guise, and is followed by a title-page printed in red and black. An oversized, folding plate shows a contrite heart accompanied by scriptural figures and allegorical images; this is also signed, Lombart. Both works came off the press with incorrect pagination, the latter with apparent page count being thrown significantly off. Provenance: Front pastedown with armorial bookplate of Charles Grave Hudson. Contemporary speckled calf, framed in blind, spine with gilt-stamped leather title-label; leather cracked over joints and spine. Occasional pencilled bracketing.

Upon his return (escape, funded by the theft of his pasioner's contributions) to England he converted to the Church of England and wrote his book, which caused an immediate sensation for its revelations of the wealth and defenselessness of the Spanish American colonies. Cromwell appointed him chaplain to the forces going to capture Jamaica and he died there.

Paris: Chez Pierre Mariette., 1655. ARCTIQUE ou SEPTENTRIONAL, et ANTARCTICQUE, ou MERIDIONAL, ou Description des Terres Arcticques et Antarctiques; et des Pays circomvoisins jusques aux 45 Degres de Latitude. Copper engraving. Original colour. Very good condition; some browning to the centrefold and a stain to the upper left, not affecting the image. Size: 54 x 39 cm. (21½ x 15½ inches) An attractive double hemisphere map based on the polar projections so as to include the northern and southern thirds of the world. The North pole is connected to Greenland and Spitzbergen but there is little other detailed coastline in the polar area. Europe, Russia and Canada are delineated. The South pole is based on the great unknown Southland of Magellan. The tip of S. America is shown, and a large land mass which encompasses the whole of the hemisphere, but nothing else, showing the limited extent of knowledge of these extreme latitudes. Extraordinarily enough, though, the southern projection, which shows little more than the outline of a vast landmass 'Australe et Incogneue', roughly corresponding to Antarctica as we know it today, long before any of it was discovered. Maps by Sanson in original colour are rare. Nicolas Sanson (1600-1667) French cartographer who established the first great cartographic dynasty in France. He was tutor to Louis XIV. Sanson published over 300 maps and was a founder of the French school of mapmakers, at a time when the leadership in European cartography passed from the Low Countries to France.

V, pp. 241-2: “Using the concept of moment and the principle of virtual velocities, Galileo extended the scope of the Archimedean work beyond purely hydrostatic considerations...The Book on Bodies in water drew attacks from four Aristotelian professors at Florence and Pisa...Galileo prepared answers to his critics, which he turned over to Castelli for publication in order to avoid personal involvement. Detailed replies to two of them...written principally by Galileo himself appeared anonymously in 1615, with a prefatory note by Castelli implying that he was the author ad that Galileo would have been more severe.”

F. VII.1590). </p><p>It contains the pharmacopoea which was universally used in the Greek, Roman and Arab worlds from the second century AD until modern times and known as a Dioscorides, after Pedacius Dioscorides Anazarbeus, a Greek doctor in the service of the Roman legions. In his "De Materia Medica", he listed 600 plants, 90 minerals and 30 animal products, with a drawing of each one and a note of its therapeutic properties. </p><p>The Vatican codex is made up of 242 folios on parchment measuring 283 x 198 mm. , to which were added in the 17th century (when it was already in Italy) 2 folios in paper containing an alphabetical index of all the "simples" illustrated. </p><p>The manuscript was originally conceived as a series of drawings only, with no explanatory text. It was compiled, using alphabetical order, around the middle of the 15th century, in the Monastery of St. John the Baptist in Constantinople, and was modelled on a famous Dioscorides which had been given in 512 to Juliana Anisia, daughter of the emperor Anisius Olibira and Placidia, daughter of Valentinian III; it is now conserved in Vienna.

FREINSHEMIUS, Johan.
Paris, P. Des-Hayes & A. Cellier, 1655. 16:o. (20),+ 134 s. Senare pergamentband, guldornerad rygg med röd titeletikett. Med Bengt Löws namnteckning i blyerts. Warmholtz 4281 not. Första franska utgåvan av Freinshemius hyllningstal till drottning Kristina. Det återges även i andra delen av Arckenholtz's "Memoires concernant... Christine". Talet hölls 1647 för att hylla Kristina på hennes 22-årsdag, och det latinska originalet trycktes samma år. Översättaren till franska, Jonas Hambraeus (1588-1671), var sedan 1626 svensk predikant i den lutheranska kyrkan i Paris, och från 1628 professor i orientaliska språk vid Paris universitet. Han var även från 1635 verksam vid svenska ambassaden i Paris, under den svenska ambassadören Hugo Grotius. Bland hans övriga översättningar finns två av Johannes Messenius till franska. Johan Freinshemius (1608-60), studerade tillsammans med Schefferus i Strassburg under Matthias Bernegger, vars dotter han sedan gifte sig med. År 1642 blev han kallad till den skytteanska professuren i Uppsala, och blev därmed den förste i raden av lärde som drottning Kristina kallade till Sverige. 1647 blev han av henne utnämnd till kunglig bibliotekarie och svensk rikshistoriograf.
