      Hagæ-comitum (Haag), 1656. Engraved frontispiece, titlepage, (18) pp. + 328 pp. + (14) pp. 43 engraved plates + 1. Bound in later halfleather. Spine restored.. Johannes Schultheiss was of the first academically trained physicians and surgeons in Germany in the 17th century. His remarkable book on surgery, the 'Armamentarium chirurgicum' was first published 10 years after his death and passed through many editions and translations all over Europe. This work contains a complete catalogue of surgical instruments, illustrated demonstrations of a variety of operative procedures and 100 case reports. The success of Scultetus' publication was responsible for an improved standard of the education of the nonacademic barber surgeons, who were treating the majority of the population, and was a significant milestone for the development of surgery as an academic speciality. A rare and extremely fascinating book with very fine engraved plates of surgery, instruments and bandages. Both boards reinforced along spine. Edges worn - especially corners

        Terra machinis mota ejusque gravitas et dimensio, dissertationes duae P. Pauli Casati,... Soc. Jesu, quas in Collegio romano ejusdem societatis publice exposuit et... cardinali Friderico Hassiae lantgravio... d. d. d. Antonius, comes de Montfort.Rome: Typis haeredum Corbeletti, 1655.

      Very rare first edition of this work on the theory of machines and the nature of gravity by the young Jesuit Paolo Casati. A thesis presented viva voce at the Collegio Romano, the work imaginatively envisions a Latin dialogue, in two parts, between three great physicists of the preceding generation, all recently dead in the 1640s: Galileo; Marin Mersenne, his greatest champion outside of Italy, and Paul Guldin, the leading Jesuit physicist at the Collegio Romano during the same period. The first part is devoted to the comparison between the forces produced by various machines, involving cog wheels, ropes and pulleys. The second is devoted to gravity and the problem of lifting the earth using the machines described in the first part.<br/><br/> That a work sympathetic to Galileo, the arch rival of the Jesuits, should be printed in Rome, the intellectual capital of the Order, suggests that the power of Galileo's condemnation was already waning, and that in areas other than astronomy, public adherence to Galileian views was becoming increasingly acceptable. This work appeared in the same year as the first collected edition of Galileo's Opera (Bologna, Dozza, 1656-55). <br/><br/> The contemporary impact of the work is not known, but according to Thorndike (VIII.179), Casati was read by Robert Boyle. A second edition, adding three further dialogues, was published in 1658. <br/><br/> Casati (1617-1707) is an interesting and understudied figure in Jesuit intellectual life in the generation after Galileo. He is best known as the principal "handler" of Queen Cristina's highly politicized conversion to Catholicism, leaving no doubt about his orthodoxy. He also wrote a work on a Galileian-style proportional compass and is credited by Baldini as a champion of Galileian mechanics, on which he lectured in Rome; see "L'attività scientifica nel primo Settecento," Storia d'Italia. Einaudi Annali 3 (Turin 1980) 469 ff.). <br/><br/> Macclesfield 483 (1658 edition); Riccardi I.270; Not in Roberts & Trent.. Small folio, contemporary limp vellum (some tear to the outer margins of the boards, with no damage to the leaves), some light water staining, but in all a very good and genuine copy with no repairs, pp. [6], 52

        Le Canada, ou Nouvelle France, & c

      Paris: Chez Pierre Mariette Rue S. Jacque, [1656]. Copper-engraved map, with original outline colour, in very good condition. 16 7/8 x 22 5/8 inches. A very rare example of one of the most important and influential maps of Canada ever devised, by Nicolas Sanson, the father of the French School of Cartography. This very rare map is the most geographically progressive portrayal of Canada made during its generation, and was not superseded until Guillaume De L'Isle's 1703 map. While it bases many of its features on his watershed map of the continent, Amerique Septentrionale (1650), it is more advanced than it in key respects. Importantly, it is the first map to depict "L. Erie ou Du Chat" in a recognizable form. This designation was derived from Jean Boisseau, who in 1643 named the body of water after the local native name "Derie," which referred to the panther like qualities of their warriors. Sanson benefited from having received a copy of The Jesuit Relations, published in Paris in 1649, a detailed account by French missionaries who had traveled in the region. Most notably, this included Father Paul Ragueneau's account of his visit to Niagara Falls and Jean Nicollet's discovery of Lake Michigan, "Lac des Puans," in 1634. Down the St. Lawrence River from the lakes, Montréal is named, the settlement having been founded by the Sieur de Maisonneuve in 1642. Elsewhere, to the north, a mysterious strait weaves over "New South Wales" on Hudson's Bay, terminating in the interior of the continent, a blank space labeled as "Mer Glaciale". This alludes to the existence of a much hoped-for Northwest Passage. Also, on the western shore of the same sea is "Nouveau Danemarcq," referring to the voyage that Danish explorer Jan Munk made to the region in 1619-20. With regards to the east coast of America, Sanson greatly improved upon his earlier work, as Long Island is correctly delineated and "N[ouvelle] Amsterdam" (present day New York) is correctly positioned. "N[ouvelle] Suede," appears at the mouth of the Delaware River, referring to the former Swedish colony centered on Fort Christina, founded on the site of present-day Wilmington, Delaware in 1638.Nicholas Sanson was born in the town of Abbeville in Picardy. Something of a child prodigy, by the age of eighteen, he could already be found in Paris drafting his own maps. There he quickly rose to become Royal Geographer to Louis XIII in 1630. He maintained the position upon the ascension of the "Sun King" Louis XIV in 1643, and later served as tutor to the ambitious young monarch. In 1644, he formed a lucrative partnership with Paris publisher Pierre Mariette with the objective of producing a great atlas that could rival those of the Amsterdam houses, such as Blaeu and Jansson. The present map was devised as one of the most important maps in the atlas. The atlas itself, entitled Les Cartes Générales de toutes les parties du Monde was not finally assembled until 1658. It was however, a landmark moment in the history of French cartography, being the first folio atlas produced in that country. The extremely high quality of Sanson's work motivated other French mapmakers to improve the standard of their production. Sanson also greatly influenced Louis XIV's chief minister, Jean-Baptiste Colbert to heavily fund cartographic projects. This gave rise to a great 'French School' of cartography that was to eventually wrest dominance of the mapmaking market from the Dutch by the 1680s. After Sanson's death in 1667, his work was continued by his sons, Guillaume (d.1703) and Adrian (d.1708).This map was first issued separately in 1656, and also appeared in an unaltered state in various editions of the first modern French atlas, Sanson's Les Cartes Générales de toutes les parties du Monde, produced from 1658 to 1676. Burden, The Mapping of North America I, 318; Kershaw, Early Printed Maps of Canada I:133, pl.81; Pastoreau, Les Atlas Français XVIe-XVIIe Siècles, Sanson VA no.86, p.406; Schwartz & Ehrenberg, Mapping of America, p.114, pl.62
