Aristoteles.
Helmstädt, Henning Müller, 1656.. (28), 751, (1) SS. Mit Holzschnittdruckermarke am Titel und einigen ornamentalen Initialen in Holzschnitt. Lederband der Zeit. Dreiseitiger Goldschnitt. 4to.. "Gegen die 1. Ausg. 1637 vermehrte und verbesserte Grundlage des Textes ist die Sylburg-Victorian'sche. In den Texten sind durch kritische Zeichen (Sterne), wie in der Aeschylus 1806, Verdorbenheiten und Lücken bezeichnet. Die recht beachtenswerthen Varianten sammelte Conring selbst. Dabei ist Victorius' lat. Übersetzung, und 'fragmenta Arist. de historiis rerumpublicarum', wie sie Casaubon gesammelt. Wdh. 1730" (Hoffmann). "Conring war - neben dem überragenden Philosophen Leibniz - einer der Polyhistoren des 17. Jhs., ein Vielwisser, kritischer Kopf und methodisch arbeitender Gelehrter, der außerordentlich anregend gewirkt und insbesondere die Rechtsgeschichte in den Rang einer historisch-kritischen Disziplin erhoben hat" (DBE). - Durchgehend im griechisch-lateinischen Paralleltext. Einband etwas berieben und mit Wurmspuren; eine Ecke bestoßen; oberes Kapital lädiert. Innen gleichmäßig schwach gebräunt, aber sauber. Einige wenige zeitgenöss. Anstreichungen. Selten; im Handel der letzten 30 Jahre nicht nachgewiesen. - BM-STC German 17, A 831. Hoffmann I, 294. Schweiger I, 55. Nicht bei Moss.

Zonca, Vittorio.
Padua, Bertelli, 1656.. (32 x 22 cm). (4) 115 S. Mit gestochenem Titel und 42 ganzseitigen Kupfern (davon 38 im Text und 4 auf 3 Tafeln). Dekorativer moderner Manuskriptpergamentband, unbeschnitten.. Vierte und letzte Ausgabe des berühmten, 1607 erstmals erschienenen, italienischen Maschinenbuches. - Es spiegelt die wirtschaftliche und wissenschaftliche Stellung Italiens wider, das bis ins 17. Jahrhundert die darin führende Nation war. Die besondere Bedeutung des vorliegenden Werkes liegt in seinem starken Bezug zur zeitgenössischen Technik. - Die großen anschaulichen Kupfer nach Vorlagen von vermutlich Zonca selbst, denen häufig mehrseitige Beschreibungen beigegeben sind, zeigen u.a. eine Mühle mit 4 Wasserrädern, eine durch eine Rindertretscheibe angetriebene Mühle, eine schiefe Ebene, die den Brenta-Kanal mit der Lagune von Venedig verbindet, eine über ein Wasserrad angetriebene Seidenzwirnmaschine, einen rauchbetriebenen Bratenwender und eine als Perpetuum mobile betriebene Wasserschöpfmaschine. - Stellenweise etwas finger- bzw. stockfleckig. Ein Kupfer mit schmaler Tintenspur. Insgesamt schönes und breitrandiges Exemplar in guter Erhaltung. - Riccardi I/2, 669; Libri rari 310; Ornamentstichkatalog 1776. - Beigebunden: Eine alte doppelblattgroße Rötelzeichnung, die eine Maschine (wohl eine Art Wäschemangel) zeigt, mit italienischer Beschriftung. With engraved title and 42 full-page engravings in the text and on plates. - Some foxing and fingermarking. Ink trace to 1 engraving. Recent manuscript vellum. Very good to fine

Janssonius, Joannes,
Amstelodami [Amsterdam], Apud Ioannem Ianssonium [1656-57].. 51 x 36 cm. Gestochener Titel, 4 Bl., 62 Kupferstich-Karten, davon 1 altkoloriert. Zeitgenössisches Ganzpergament mit Goldprägung auf den Deckeln und am Rücken. Einband mit kleinen Beschädigungen, Vergoldung des hinteren Deckels abgerieben. Die ersten Blätter mit restaurierten Papierschäden im Randbereich. Titel stärker, sonst meist nur im Randbereich gebräunt bzw. fleckig. Wie üblich einige Einrisse im Bugbereich der Karten. Eine Karte aus einem anderen Exemplar ergänzt (altkoloriert). Exlibris.. Koeman, Atlantes Neerlandici II, Me 58/64. Vollständiger erster Teil des zweiten Bandes mit allen Karten zu Frankreich und der Schweiz. Der zweite Teil (Niederlande/Belgien) wurde vom Vorbesitzer entfernt und durch eine Schatulle ersetzt, die der Aufbewahrung kleinformatiger Karten oder Dokumente diente. Die Kollation entspricht den Angaben von Koeman, allerdings wurde die Gesamtkarte durch die moderne Fassung "Galliae, Nova et Accurata descriptio Vulgo Royaume De France" ersetzt. Seit 1650 wurde auf dem Titelblatt keine Jahreszahl vermerkt und das mittlere Feld mit dem typographischen Titel blieb leer. Dieser musste dann nicht mehr umgestochen werden, sondern konnte für die verschiedenen Editionen gleich bleiben. Vielmehr wurde das Titelsegment separat gedruckt und montiert. In vorliegendem Exemplar ist das Titelblatt mit unbedrucktem und unmontiertem Titelfeld erhalten. Ein zu montierender Titel liegt jedoch faksimiliert bei. Die Klappschatulle am Rückdeckel enthält 35 Holzschnitte und Kupferstiche, meist Landkarten un … [Click Below for Full Description]

The writer refers to his own age as 'this iron age', having a particular view that 'this abominable age, whereof the scripture so clearly speaks: This is the Kingdome of Iron, which shivers and subdues all things. The seven angels have powred down their vials upon the earth, which is filled with blasphemy, massacres, injustices, disloyalties and infinite other evills, almost able to draw even the very elect to murmuration'.

In-8, In-16 dont tous les feuillets ont été placés dans des pages au format in-8, au XIXe , vélin. Maître Pathelin au tribunal, gravure du Moyen Âge La Farce de Maître Pathelin (ou La Farce de Maistre Pierre Pathelin, La Farce de Pathelin, Farce Maître Pierre Pathelin, Farce de Maître Patelin) est une pièce de théâtre (du genre de la farce) composée à la fin du Moyen Âge, vers 1456-14601. La 1re édition imprimée est datable de vers 1452. Souvent considérée comme anonyme, cette ¿uvre est parfois attribuée à Guillaume Alécis, voire à François Villon. La Farce de maître Pathelin est écrite en vers octosyllabiques (elle comporte 1605 vers), en dialecte d¿Île-de-France fortement mâtiné de particularismes angevins6,7. La popularité de la pièce est attestée par les nombreuses éditions imprimées qui en furent faites à la fin du xve siècle et au xvie siècle : la première, datable de vers 1485, a pour titre Maistre Pierre pathelin (in-4 goth. sans bois de 44 feuillets non chiffrés de 26, puis 25 lignes, à la pleine page ; imprimé à Lyon par Guillaume Le Roy) ; une autre, datée de 1490, a pour titre Pathelin le grant et le petit (in-4 goth. de 34 feuilles de 29 lignes à la page ; imprimé à Paris le 20 décembre 1490) et elle est illustrée8.

(17) (1bc.) ; 173pp. (5), relié. - Cinquième édition des Œuvres de Voiture, dont l'originale est parue en 1648 ; et édition originale des Nouvelles œuvres de Voiture. Un frontispice de Mellan pour le premier volume, un bandeau et une lettrine dans l'épître et un beau portrait de l'auteur par Champaigne gravé par Nanteuil. Reliure en pleine basane brune d'époque. Dos à nerfs richement orné. Pièce de titre en maroquin rouge. Un manque en coiffe. Accroc avec manque au mors supérieur en queue. Frottements. Bon exemplaire. Voiture (1597-1648) fut toute sa vie un galant et un courtisan, brillant dans les salons et jouant aux jeux. Son talent épistolaire lui valut de mettre longtemps en France la prose à la mode, et ses poésies excellent dans le ton maniériste et précieux, même s'il sait tour à tour être trivial quand il le faut. C'est un personnage incontournable de la scène littéraire du début du XVIIe, un vrai personnage de Molière. Voiture, c'est tout d'abord un style, non seulement dans ses lettres (Lettres amoureuses) et ses poésies mais également dans sa prose, voir pour exemple les délicieuses Métamorphoses. Ses œuvres furent à l'image de l'homme, galant, enseignant le beau langage et les belles manières aux habitués de l'hôtel de Rambouillet. Sa renommée fut très grande durant son siècle et il demeure un emblème pour le XVIIème siècle.

Johannes JANSSONIUS (1588-1664)
Acquaforte, 1656 circa. Bellissima prova, impressa su 4 fogli di carta vergata coeva, 8 segmenti tagliati ed uniti, alcune pieghe di carta, per il resto in buono stato di conservazione.La Tabula Peutingeriana è una carta rappresentante il mondo conosciuto nell'età antica; vi manca l'estremo Occidente, mentre tutto il resto fino alle foci del Gange è disegnato sopra una striscia di pergamena lunga m 6.83 e larga m 0.34. Il disegno risulta pertanto alquanto deformato, essendo la linea nord-sud ridotta assai rispetto a quella ovest-est. Notevole appare l'inclinazione dell'Italia, come di altre regioni, verso est. Ma la carta vuol essere un sommario delle grandi strade dell'Impero romano, e delle stazioni situate lungo di esse come delle distanze che le separavano. Le città sono segnate da piccole case o torri mentre quelle più importanti da mura torrite. Roma, Costantinopoli e Antiochia sono distinte da un circolo che porta nel mezzo una figura la quale per Roma è incoronata. La mappa ricevette il suo nome dal suo antico proprietario Konrad Peutinger di Augsburg, il quale l'aveva ricevuta dall'umanista Konrad Celtes di Vienna nel 1507. Si ritiene che la Tabula Peutingeriana sia copia di altra più antica, nella quale già mancasse il primo segmento, dove dovrebbe apparire la parte occidentale della Spagna; i segmenti superstiti sono undici. Chi sia l'autore e in quale epoca la carta sia stata disegnata è incerto. Gli studiosi sono comunque d'avviso che l'originale sia da collocarsi nell'età imperiale, tra il IV ed il II secolo dopo Cristo. Sembra di notevole significato per la c … [Click Below for Full Description]

CASATI, Paolo.
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 politic … [Click Below for Full Description]

He was in 1643 appointed professor of rhetoric and history at Deventer and in 1658 professor in greek at Leiden. In 1665, Gronovius also succeeded Anthony Thysius as librarian of Leiden University. He edited several classical authors as well as an important new edition of Grotius' De jure belli et pacis in 1660.
