COLES (William)
London: Printed by J. G. Nath. Brook, 1656. First edition, first issue, 2 parts in one, 12mo, [24], 175, [1]pp., signatures: A⁸(A1+a4) B-H¹² I⁴ (four leaves (a4), consisting of a dedication to Ellis Ashmole and a list of errata, inserted between A1 and A2), minor professional repairs to margins of several leaves, some light staining but otherwise text quite clean, new marbled endpapers, recent full calf, blind-stamp tool to both covers, red morocco title label. William Coles (1626-62), his enthusiasm for botany developed while he was at Oxford; he afterwards resided at Putney, Surrey, where he was a friend of Dr William How, founder of the Westminster botanic garden, and according to Wood (Athenae oxoienses), "he became the most famous simpler or herbalist of his time." As the Hunt catalogue notes, publication of this book was personally disastrous for Coles. Parts of the work formed a sustained attack on Nicholas Culpeper's astrological tendencies. However, in his haste to find a patron Coles had dedicated the book to Elias Ashmole, who unbeknownst to Coles was himself an astrologist. "This necessitated the removal of the most offending leaves in the dedication and the text, and Coles fairly leaned over backward in his attempt to win the favour Ashmole. However, the damage had been done, the new dedication still contained material that might easily have distressed Ashmole, and it seems clear that he must have refused permission for the use of his name." The present copy is the rare first issue, with the offending text and dedication present. Provenance: Manuscri … [Click Below for Full Description]

LEGRENZI, Giovanni 1626-1690
Legrenzi "was one of the most gifted and influential composers of the latter half of the 17th century. Active in most fields of composition, he was an important force in the development of the late Baroque style in northern Italy." When he composed this letter, Legrenzi was the maestro di cappella of the Accademia dello Spirito Santo in Ferrara, "an institution devoted... to the performance of sacred music and oratorios." During his tenure in Ferrara (1656-1665), Legrenzi cultivated a number of indispensable aristocratic connections, the most important of which was with Ippolito Bentivoglio, "who was active in the affairs of the academy, a supporter of opera, librettist for at least two of Legrenzi's dramatic works and a lifelong patron and friend, who appears to have assisted him in obtaining first performances in Venice in 1664 and Vienna in 1665." Legrenzi wrote numerous letters to Bentivoglio up to 1685. He became vice-maestro di cappella at St. Mark's in Venice in 1681 and maestro di cappella in 1685. Stephen Bonta in Grove Music Online. "In 1658, while employed at S Petronio, Bologna, [Rascarini] performed the male lead in the Bologna revival of P.A. Ziani's Le fortune di Rodope e Damira. He repeated the role at least three times in the following four years, and in 1659 and 1661 he sang in the Venetian premières of Cavalli's Antioco and Castrovillari's Pasife. From 1662 until his death (except for the period 1691-9) he was contralto di camera to the Dukes of Savoy at Turin, performing alongside the famous castrato G.A. Cavagna...

Sanson, Nicholas.
Paris: Pierre Mariette, 1656. - A very nice, clean example of this important and rare map, which "influenced the cartography of Canada for the next fifty years. The eastern Great Lakes region is remarkably accurate, with the western ends of the lakes undefined for lack of reliable information. The possibility of a northwest passage at the bottom of Button's Bay was also to influence a considerable number of cartographers for the rest of the century."(Goss. Mapping of North America, map 33). Minor flaws include scattered creasing, light dampstain at bottom right corner, splitting a few inches along bottom of center fold, a small mild stain at bottom from a sticker that had been on reverse, a small tear near left edge and a few other imperfections. But otherwise bright with good outline color. Not laid down, and does not appear to have been cleaned or otherwise restored. [Attributes: First Edition]

TASSO (Torrquato)
In Leida. Presso Giovanni Elsevier, 1656. 12mo, 128 x 73 mms., pp. [xxii], 84, contemporary or slightly later embroidered binding, with crowns in silver threads against a dark brown background, all edges gilt, with the late 17th or early 18th century bookplate of Charles-Louis Texier, comte d'Hautefeuille or possibly his father, Jacques Etienne Louis Texier, comte d'Hautefeuille on the front paste-down end-paper; no free end-papers, slight worming of lower front cover of binding, remnants of ties, but in general in very good shape for an embroidered binding. Tasso (1544 - 1595) composed Aminta in 1573 for a garden party at the court of Ferrara. "The play has a pastoral theme, and is set in the time of Alexander the Great. The characters are shepherds and nymphs. The story is about Aminta's love for the beautiful nymph Silvia, who does not return his attentions and prefers hunting. She risks rape at the hands of a Satyr but Aminta saves her; however, again she flees from him. Aminta, finding her blood-stained veil, attempts to kill himself. Now Silvia is remorseful, comes back to cry over Aminta's body who is still alive, and the two can happily marry, following the advice that older and wiser friends had been giving them" (Wikipedia).

SARTI Cristofano.
Opera dedicata a Angelo Fabbroni. Cm.20,4x13,4. Pg.XVI, 228. Legatura cartonata coeva con rinforzo al dorso. Piatti decorati. Antiporta con vignetta calcografica. In fine al volume, con numerazione autonoma "Appendice all'ottica della natura e dell'educazione, Ossia Risposta alle censure di un professore anonimo" (pg.48). Fresco esemplare, fioriture marginali. Si tratta della edizione originale di un testo di ottica composto da Cristofano Sarti, docente nell'Università di Pisa, esattamente cento anni dopo la esposizione del celebre "problema di Molineux". Il filosofo naturalista William Molyneux (Dublin, 1656 - 1698) pose nel 1692, nel "Dioptrica nova", un quesito all'epoca di notevole risonanza, segnalato anche da Locke nel "An Essay Concerning Human Understanding": se cioè un cieco, cui improvvisamente fosse donata la vista, fosse in grado di riconoscere rapidamente una sfera da un cubo, cosa che aveva evidentemente sperimentato con facilità in assenza dell'organo visivo.

MARIA CRISTINA DI BORBONE, Duchessa di Savoia, detta ""Madama Reale""
Rara lettera in italiano e francese per la maggior parte autografa firmata "Chretienne" indirizzata al Marchese Villa, cavaliere dell'ordine e Generale della Cavalleria. La prima metà della lettera, scritta dal segretario, parla dell'assedio di Verrua "hora vediamo che gli spagnuoli perduta la speranza di soccorrere cotesta piazza si volgono l’animo a dar qualche colpo a quelle di questi stati, e che disegnano come saprete sopra Verrua". Segue, sotto la firma del segretario, una parte autografa, in francese, di una nota personale della reggente indirizzata al Marchese, fedele generale sin dai tempi degli assedi del 1640. Maria Cristina di Borbone, duchessa di Savoia, fu moglie di Vittorio Amedeo I e dal 1637 Reggente del Ducato di Savoia, soprannominata "Madame Reale". Morì a Torino nel 1663. Tutte le lettere dei Savoia del '600 sono ritenute di grande rarità. 4 pagine di cui la prima interamente redatta, due bianche e l'ultima con indirizzo e sigillo in ostia. Perfette condizioni.

In - 4. Legatura coeva in pergamena rigida, titolo calligrafato sul dorso. Frontespizio allegorico inc. in rame, uno stemma a p. pagina, e 12 tavole f.t. (22), 689, (15) pp.; vecchio timbretto sul frontespizio e lieve naturale ossidazione della carta. L?Iter extaticum coeleste racconta in forma di dialogo un viaggio fantastico nel cosmo, alla luna, a Venere ed altri pianeti. E? una delle opere più curiose del noto gesuita, ed il suo unico scritto di astronomia. La prima edizione apparve a Roma nel 1656; il testo venne poi corretto e ampliato da Gaspar Schott (1608 - 66), amico e discepolo del Kircher, e ristampato a Würzburg nel 1660 con l?Iter exstaticum terrestre, in cui il viaggio immaginario prosegue sulla Terra (questa del 1671 è la seconda edizione collettiva). Kircher vi descrive le meraviglie del mondo vegetale e animale della superficie, quelle del mondo sottomarino, e le caratteristiche geologiche del mondo sotterraneo, anticipando così il suo celebre Mundus subterraneus del 1664. Caillet 5776. Cf. Merrill, Kircher, 12 e 14. Early edition of Kircher?s most curious work and the only one he devoted entirely to astronomy, followed by his first description of the nature of the Earth, the submarine and the underworld.

A celebrated work of political philosophy, which had a profound influence on America's founding fathers. "The written constitution, the unlimited use of the elective principle and the separation of powers are all points which may have been derived directly from the Oceana, while all the minor points of machinery, rotation, checks and balances, popular ratifications and special protection for the constitution seem to have been first formulated by Harrington" (A. E. Levett in Encyc. of Social Sciences). Although the Dedication, signed by Harrington, is to Cromwell, and despite the fact utopia commonwealth is decidedly anti-monarchist, evidently fears of political repercussions led to the dispersal of the printing among three different printers, resulting in irregularities of typography and pagination.

Sanson, Nicolas
Americas: Paris Par N Sanson ... Chez Pierre Mariette. 1656-8. Copper engraved map of the Caribbean by Nichols sanson from his"Cartes Generales De Toutes Les Parties Du Monde". Original outline colour; verso blank. The map shows all the islands of the Caribbean with the southern tip of Florida and the coasts to the south. Decorative title cartouche . Good impression; slight dampstaining to edges, far from plate ; small stain just below cartouche. Nicolas Sanson (1600-1667) is generally acknowledged as the founder of the great French school of geographers and cartographers that supplanted the Dutch as the leading European map-makers. His work was acclaimed for its geographical accuracy and high standard of engraving. As a consequence, his many maps received a wide diffusion. His career marks the start of the process by which Paris superseded Amsterdam as the centre of European map production. Nicolas studied Ancient History as a young man, and this awoke in him an interest in classical geography. His first map, of ancient Gaul was made in 1618, when he was only 18. Sanson had three sons, Nicolas (1626-1648), Guillaume (d.1703) and Adrien (d.1708), and a grandson Pierre Moullard-Sanson (d.1730), all of whom were involved in the family's map-making activities. After Sanson settled in Paris his work came to the attention of King Louis XIII, who eventually appointed Sanson Geographe Ordinaire du Roi, one of whose duties was to tutor the King in geography. Sanson published some 300 maps in his career, though his first most famous atlas, the folio "Cartes Generales De Toutes Les P … [Click Below for Full Description]

Origineel overslaand Perkament, 12° (Daniël Mostaert, 1591-1646, was secretaris van Amsterdam, en vriend van Vondel, die hem zijn dichtstuk 'De Roomsche Lier' heeft toegewijd. Hij was ook bevriend met Reael, Barlaeus en andere beroemde tijdgenoten zoals Hooft, van wie hij enkele werken heeft nagekeken. ''Zijn 'Vermeerde Nederduytsche Secretaris ofte Zendtbrief schryver' handelt over het op de juiste manier van schrijven van brieven en verscheen voor het eerst in 1635. Het boek bestaat uit drie delen, waarvan het eerste deel een algemene inleiding op de zendbrief, taalgebruik en de kwaliteiten van de zendbriefschrijver is, het tweede deel vooral gericht is op het correct schrijven van formele brieven en het derde deel op informele brieven. Binnen het tweede en het derde deel worden verschillende typen brieven naar doeleinden van schrijven behandeld. Een van de belangrijkste punten die in zijn boek terugkeert is het streven naar gepastheid: ""bij elke brief moet men de ontvanger naar zijn waarde aanschrijven.'') ".

FRISCHMANN (Johann) ].
Gryphiswaldiae, 1656. - in-4. 62pp. (1f.blanc). Demi-maroquin vert postérieur. Edition Originale (?), imprimée à Greifswald, de cet opuscule paru simultanément à Upsala et qui valut au diplomate strasbourgeois Johann Frischmann (1612-1680) la renommée dans les milieux diplomatiques de l'époque. Dédiée au roi Charles X de Suède, il contenait d'insolentes critiques à l'égard de l'attitude des Habsbourg dans le conflit qui opposait la Pologne et la Suède en 1656. Essentiellement composé d'épigrammes mordantes, l'ouvrage marqua les esprits par l'originalité de son style, le "Lapidarstil" ("style lapidaire"), qu'il popularisa parmi les écrivains allemands de l'époque. A l'époque de la rédaction de cette brochure, l'auteur était au service de l'empereur d'Allemagne Ferdinand III qui avait offert l'asile au roi de Pologne en fuite mais 'année suivante, ayant été appelé par Mazarin qui l'avait remarqué, il passa au service de la France.

Bell'insieme di due prime edizioni dedicate alla peste. La prima, assai rara, e non citata da molta bibliografia; la seconda è l'edizione originale del testo che, più volte ristampato, fece scuola per vari decenni in cui dopo una lunga trattazione scientifica si riporta un interessante elenco di casi in cui la peste ha colpito con particolare aggressività ed altri in cui la malattia non si è presentata affatto. Curiose le affermazioni in cui l'autore invita all'utilizzo del tabacco come metodo per tener lontana l'epidemia di peste. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
