Blaeu, Guillaume & Jean.
Americas: Amsterdam Apud Johannem Guiljelmi F. Blaeu. c1655. Original coloured, copper engraved map of Virginia from volume 2 of Joan Blaeu's "Theatrum Orbis terrarum, sive atlas novus .pars secunda. " Double page; folio; Latin text to verso. Oriented West, based upon John Smith's landmark map of the Virginia colony issued in 1612 the plate is drawn from Jodocus Hondius' plate of 1618 . Blaeu acquired a number of Hondius ' plates in 1629 thus it is the 2nd state with the imprint of Blaeu, which would appear in Blaeu's atlases from 1630 to 1663. Taken from the first state of the Smith, it continues the coastlines where the former had left them vague. It features a Sasquesahanough Indian in the top right and the arms of James I of England and VI of Scotland appearing next to the cartouche with the explanation of the symbols; in the upper left a vignette of the famous scene of Powhatan, Pocahontas and John Smith. one of the most important maps of America ever produced and certainly one of the greatest influence.

Blaeu, Guillaume & Jean.
Americas: Amsterdam Apud Johannem Guiljelmi F. Blaeu. c1655. Original coloured, copper engraved map of Virginia & Florida from volume 2 of Joan Blaeu's "Theatrum Orbis terrarum, sive atlas novus .pars secunda. " Double page; folio; Latin text to verso. Large decorative title catouche ; scale with 2 putti, of which the left has a tail thus 2nd state; ships and compass roses to sea. Cartographically this map forms a marked improvement on the Jodocus Hondius map of 1606, from which this was largely derived. It also amply illustrates the direction that engraving styles had moved, being more open and florid. The map depicts two nations' interests, both marked by their own coat of arms. The French claim, being largely present day Georgia, rests on the abortive colonial attempts of the 1560s. Blaeu makes no advance here in geography, following Hondius to the letter. The greatest improvement occurs in the northern half of the map north of Porto Royal. Whereas on the Hondius the coastline towards C. de Ste. Romano (present day Cape Fear) veered directly east, Blaeu more correctly takes it north-east, placing the cape closer to its true position of 34°. This span of coastline is approximately that of present day South Carolina's. This now present to us a more accurately proportioned Outer Banks Region, radically reduced in size but still slightly too far north. For these improvements Blaeu drew upon the extremeley rare DE EYLANDEN ..., by Hessel Gerritsz, c. 1631. The Outer Banks combine the placenames of Gerritsz and Hondius, often using two different ones for the same area such a … [Click Below for Full Description]

The Ortus medicinae is the masterwork of one of the most original geniuses in the history of science. Van Helmont is celebrated as one of the first to conduct quantitative biological experiments one of the founders of biochemistry one of the first to recognize that there are several air like substances, and the originator of the word gas (from the Flemish pronunciation of the Greek word 'chaos') to describe them and the author of the modern ontological conception of disease. Van Helmont was, like Paracelsus, an alchemist and a mystic, but above all he believed in experiment and empiricism as the path to true knowledge. He was a sceptic in Boyle's sense of the word, and rejected the scholasticism of his contemporaries. Not surprisingly he was persecuted in his own time, and much admired by Boyle. 'In medicine, he introduced the examination of the specific gravity of urine for diagnostic purposes. He investigated the fluids in the human body and advanced the hydrochloric acid some two hundred years before the actual discovery of this fact. He also appreciated the significance of bile in the gut for digestion. Helmont's significance in the development of chemistry is per … [Click Below for Full Description]

Galilei. (GRASSI, Orazio, S.J., 1583-1654). -
Bologna, Dozza, 1655. 2 opere in 1 vol. In - 4 picc. Legatura moderna in mezzo marocchino blu, titolo impresso in oro sul dorso. 48 pp. Seconda edizione delle prime due opera sulla celebre controversia tra Grassi e Galileo sulle comete, iniziata nel 1619. Cf. Cinti, Galileo, 62 - 63 e 132; Riccardi I, 511 e 518. Second edition of both works, the first two of the Grassi - Galileo dispute about comets. It began in 1619 with Grassi's treatise on the comets of 1618, which provoked Galileo to reply - using the name of his assistant Guiducci to avoid problems with the Inquisition - with the Discorso delle Comete, which also contains his views on many other aspects of astronomy, especially on the Jovian satellites, and the use of the telescope. The controversy continued with Grassi's Libra Astronomica, Galileo's Saggiatore of 1623, and a final reply by Grassi in 1626. It should be noted that Grassi's opinion that comets are planetary in nature and have predictable orbits, is nearly correct, while Galileo's view that they are merely atmospheric phenomena is flatly wrong.

Allaeus, Franciscus.
[Rennes, Julian Herbert], 1654[-1655]. Folio (235 x 360 mm). (4), 4, 12 pp. 57, (1) pp. 26 pp., terminal blank. With 1 engraved disc in the text of the first count (a repeat of disc 2 of the first volvelle), 3 volvelles in the first section, composed of 11 parts; and 2 volvelles in the second section, composed of 6 parts (all but two stitched together, but inserted loosely, never sewn into the book). Contemporary full vellum. Rare second, expurged edition of this remarkable treatise offering predictions for the destiny of European nations, issued without place or printer in the year of the almost unobtainable first edition, most copies of which were burned by the hangman at Nantes and Rennes shortly after publication. The first edition was deemed offensive due to the predictions of five volvelles in the second section which offered horoscopes for Islam, Christianity, France, Spain, and England. A "Figura Sectae Mahometanae" dared to give a horoscope of the Prophet Mohammed and a list of significant events in the history of Islam; this was followed by predictions which included the suggestion that a quarter of the world would be Islamic by 1703. The horoscope of Christianity also included dire predictions: indeed, those for the fate of England (ending with the wiping out of the English nation in 1884) caused a serious diplomatic rift, resulting in the English ambassador demanding the book be suppressed. The present edition of the "Astrologiae Nova Methodus" (and subsequent ones) omits the incriminated 7 pages and 5 volvelles; instead, it prefixes a new, two-page introduction … [Click Below for Full Description]

Collection of 345 essays concerning a wide range of subjects, edited by Theophraste Renaudot and his sons Isaac and Eusèbe. Théophraste Renaudot (1586-1653), founder of French journalism and of various institutions for social betterment. Touched by the hordes of paupers who infested Paris after the wars of religion, he opened the first employment agency. In 1631 he established what is generally regarded as the first French newspaper, the Gazette, later called Gazette de France, which appeared weekly up to 1914. Both Louis XII and Richelieu, realizing the power exerted by the press upon public opinion, contributed to the Gazette, and Richelieu granted Renaudot a news monopoly. He founded, in anticipation of the Academy of Sciences, a learned society, whose purpose was to give a weekly lecture, followed by a symposium, on any subject other than theology and politics. The conferences were open to all who bothered to come and they were conducted in French, the topic of each conference was decided by the participants. To allow maximum freedom of speech and expression the names of the contributors were not given in the printed texts. It is known that man … [Click Below for Full Description]

Larges mouillures en début et en fin de volume. Edition originale très rare de ce livre singulier dans lequel l'auteur expose sa théorie du "préadamisme" érigée sur l'interprétation d'un passage d'une lettre de saint Paul aux Romains, suivant laquelle il y avait eu des hommes avant Adam et qu'il y aurait eu en fait deux créations : celle des païens d'abord, puis celle d'Adam, ancêtre des Juifs. Cette théorie pré-évolutioniste fut largement combattue dès la publication de l'ouvrage et plusieurs réfutations furent publiées dès l'année suivante. Le scandale d'une telle hérésie se propagea rapidement et le livre fut condamné au feu par le Parlement de Paris. La Peyrere fut arrêté sur ordre de l'archevêque de Malines en Février 1656 et dut se rétracter et abjurer le protestantisme pour recouvrer la liberté. Il continua malgré tout à persister dans sa foi ainsi que dans sa théorie dont il ne saisissait pas le caractère hérétique. L'influence de cet ouvrage fut considérable car le traité de La Peyrère fut revendiqué d'abord par les polygénistes et les philosophes des Lumières pour qui les ra … [Click Below for Full Description]

Originaler Lederband auf fünf unechten Bünden mit blindgeprägter Deckel- und Rückenornamentik mittels Rahmen und Rautenfläche, durchgehenen Goldschnitt und Metallschließe. Familienchronik der Freiherrn von Friebeisz (auch Friebeis, Frühbeis), rückwirkend wohl um 1914 verfasst. Am 24. Juni 1655 erhielt der aus Rajka (Ragendorf) gebürtige Johann Friebeisz von Kaiser Ferdinand III. beim Reichstag in Pressburg den Adels- und Wappenbrief. Während der Stamm der Familie in Ungarn ansässig blieb und sich bis ins heutige Westrumänien verzweigte, entstand im 19. Jh. zunächst in Bruck a. d. Leitha ein später nach Wien übersiedelnder österreichischer Zweig, indem der zugereiste Ignaz von Friebeis (1786-1839) die in Bruck ansässige, zweimal verwitwete Kaufmannsfrau Josepha Lübeck-Troll, geb. Thanhoffer (1796-1835) ehelichte und mit ihr vier Kinder zeugte. - Die Chronik berichtet zunächst über die Vorfahren dieser Josepha von Friebeis, deren männliche Vertreter um 1800 als leitende Beamte in den Verwaltungen der Fürsten Esterházy (Schloss Forchtenau, Herrschaft Levenz (Levá) oder Harrach (Schloss Prugg) tätig waren.

Blaeu, Joan / Martini, Martinus.
Folio (560 x 364 mm). Engraved architectural title with French letterpress text label, 17 engraved double-page maps colored by a contemporary hand (no text on versos), mounted on guards. Modern calf. First Latin edition of the first European atlas of China. Martini based his highly regarded survey on the Ming revision of the Yü t'u, unlike d'Anville's atlas which used Jesuit surveys. D'Anville notes in his Mémoire: "Martini made use of the maps which the Chinese possessed at the time. They do great honour to that nation and make them superior in this connection to any other Asian people" (p. 25f.; quoted in Lust). The hand-coloured double-page maps consist of a general map of China, 15 maps of the provinces, and a map of Japan. The volume was published as a separate volume by Blaeu in 1655; however, the maps were also included in volume VI of Blaeu's "Nieuwe Atlas" (1649-58) in Dutch and "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum; sive, Novus Atlas" (1655) in Latin. - Title with small repair at center, patched with bookplate on verso before colouring, first leaf with paper flaw repaired before printing and with a few letters supplied in manuscript facsimile on verso, map of Iunnan with tiny losses to brown pigment repaired on verso, some browning, mostly to text. Provenance: contemporary, unidentified engraved armorial bookplate on verso of title; latterly in the library of Jean R. Perrette (his bookplate on pastedown). Cordier (Sinica) 182. Koeman Bl 53. Lust 160. Henze III, 384f. & cf. IV, 339. Howgego I, M64 (p. 689).

Thick 8vo, cont. vellum over boards, yapp edges. Goslar: "Gedruckt bey Nicolas Dunckern, in Verlegung des Autoris und Buchdruckers. Im Jahr 1655.First edition and a very fine copy of a rare book; this is the first time we have handled a copy. WorldCat locates no copy outside of Germany (and very few within Germany).Eichholtz was a minister in the mining town of Zellerfeld, located in the center of the mining activities of the famous Harz Mountains. Mining has been carried on there since the middle of the 10th century, especially for silver, lead, gold, copper, iron, sulphur, alum, and arsenic.This book is very much in the style of the Sarepta (1562) by Mathesius, a close friend of both Agricola and Luther. Indeed, the Sarepta inspired a series of books over the next 150 years which combined religious instruction with discussions of mining and metallurgical technology.The present treatise, delivered in the form of sermons, describes the processes of mining iron, copper, silver, gold, and other metals. Like the Sarepta, it is written in the "bergkleuftigen" manner of the familiar miner's tongue. These sermons related practical mining problems to Biblical stories in order to influence the miners' religious sentiment and pleasure in the church as well as to deepen their professional interest.At the end of Vol. I, there is a valuable dictionary of mining terms.The splendid double-page engraved tit … [Click Below for Full Description]

Cette somme magnifique, l'une des premières consacrées à la description d'un cabinet de curiosités, dépeint le musée d'histoire naturelle du médecin et savant danois Ole Worm (1588-1654) en quatre parties : minéraux, plantes, animaux et "artificialia" manufacturés par l'homme. L'ouvrage a paru après la mort de son auteur, son fils Willum Worm se chargeant de l'édition, qu'il dédie au roi de Danemark Frédéric III.

L'Ecôle des filles
_. ?) auf dem Vorderdeckel; etw. beschabt u. bestoßen, vord. Gelenk aufgeplatzt, Rücken am Fuß mit Fehlstelle (ca. 1 cm). Gay-Lemonnyer II, 62. - Sehr seltene Ausgabe des berühmtem Erotikons, dessen komplette erste Auflage (1655) auf dem Scheiterhaufen verbrannt worden war. Als Autor wird häufig Michel Millot genannt, der aber wohl, zusammen mit Jean L'Ange, nur Herausgeber und Auftraggeber des Erstdrucks war. Späteren Nachdrucken war häufig ein "Madrigal" zu Ehren des Autors vorangesetzt, das Millots Namen in "Mililot" oder, wie hier, "Mililorme" verballhornte. Dem titelgebenden Dialog zweier junger Frauen über sexuelle Themen sind ca. 30 weitere "galante" Texte von Pierre-Corneille Blessebois, Roger de Rabutin Bussy, Pietro Aretino sowie verschiedenen anonymen Autoren angefügt. Bis in die Abfolge hinein sind sie mit dem Inhalt eines unter dem Titel "Le cabinet d'amour et de Venus" und dem fingierten Druckort "Cologne, chez les Héritiers de Pierre Marteau" erschienenen Werks identisch. Die auf dem Titelblatt genannten "trente sept Belles Figure (sic) Gravées en Taille Douce" existieren nach Gay-Lemonnyer nicht. Sowohl Gay-Lemonnyer als auch Brunet (Imprimeurs imaginaires, S. 19) zitieren die vorliegende Ausgabe lediglich nach einem bei der Versteigerung der Sammlung Jules Auvillain (Paris 1865) angebotenen Exemplar. Weitere Nachweise für die Existenz des Drucks kannten sie nicht ("une édition ..., qui n'avait pas encore cité" - Brunet).

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.

Garthwait,, Lodnon 1655 - 96pp., [Preface], 112 pp., [Introduction], [3 Index], (bound back to front, from right to left without any loss), contemporary full calf, rebacked, title gilt on decorated spine, previous owner’s small label verso lower cover, a reprint of the 1654 first edition - An abridged version of Walton's famous and important introduction to the London Polyglot Bible which was published in 1655-57 (in 6 volumes), or rather a summary of Walton's comprehensive 'praefatio' about Oriental languages in general and on different Bible versions. The Oriental types for the Hebrew, Arabic, Syriac, and Samaritan characters are prepared by Roycroft. The Ethiopic types were apparently not yet finished, and are printed in woodcut. The Coptic and Armenian types were also printed in woodcut. "This little tract is really well written, and must have been very useful at the time it was published. It does not contain grammars of the different languages mentioned in the title, but only different alphabets, and directions how to read them. At the end of the exposition of the alphabet of each language, is a Specimen, in the proper character . This little work is of considerable importance, as the harbinger of the inestimable Polyglott". (A. Clarke: A succinct account of the Polyglott Bibles, Liverpool 1802, p. 46). Bibliographic references: De Sacy 2487; Lowndes 1898; Wing W658; Zenker BO ii, 1508. Size: 12mo [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
