        Wintergezicht Zwolle - Gerrit Grasdorp, ca. 1700.

      IJSVERMAAK OP HET ZWARTE WATER BIJ ZWOLLETekening in pen en gewassen inkt van de hand van Gerrit Grasdorp. Afm (papier) 21,2 x 34,2 cm. Van Grasdorp is weinig meer bekend dan dat hij gedoopt is in 1659 en in armoede in 1716 is gestorven. Hij stamt uit een Zwolse kunstenaarsfamilie en moet van zijn 17 jaar oudere halfbroer Jan les hebben gehad. Van Gerrit zijn gezichten op Zwolle en enkele ijssc?nes bekend. Er bevinden zich tekeningen van Gerrit in het Overijssels Museum, Rijksprentenkabinet en Atlas van Stolk.We zien hier Zwolle vanuit het noorden, vanaf het Zwarte Water met in de achtergrond de "Peperbus" (Onze-Lieve-Vrouwetoren) en rechts daarvan de Sassenpoort, geheel rechts een voorloper van de Herstelder molen aan de tegenwoordige Eekwal op het bolwerk.In de tweede helft van de 17de eeuw werd de positie van Zwolle als streekcentrum versterkt, mede doordat Deventer terugviel. In de handel tussen Amsterdam en Duitsland speelde de stad een belangrijk rol. De nijverheid bloeide in de 18de eeuw dankzij de zout- en zeepziederijen en de verwerking van suiker, tabak en koffie. In de winter was de stad voor de scheepvaart onbereikbaar en was er minder werk. De mensen hadden tijd om te schaatsen.Prijs: Euro 4.350,- (incl. lijst).

        Geometria

      Amsterdam: L. & D. Elzevier, 1659. Second Edition. Contemporary vellum. Fine. RARE 1659-1661 SECOND EDITION OF DESCARTES'S GEOMETRY, GREATLY EXPANDED FROM THE 1649 FIRST EDITION BY THE ADDITION OF IMPORTANT COMMENTARY: "This edition served as the basic textbook for the generation that, in the last quarter of the century, took the lead in introducing differential and integral calculus" (Jahnke). A beautiful copy in contemporary vellum. On November 10, 1619, "the most important event of Descartes's life occurred... Descartes spent the whole day snugly tucked up in bed, dreaming (or daydreaming) about the nature of the world... [and] it was on this day that Descartes first saw the road to his own philosophy and also had one of the greatest mathematical insights of all time. "Idly watching a fly buzzing around in the corner of the room, Descartes suddenly realized that the position of the fly at any moment in time could be represented by three numbers, giving its distance from each of the three walls that met in the corner. Although he instantly saw this in three-dimensional terms, the nature of his insight is now known to every schoolchild who has ever drawn a graph. Any point on the graph is represented by two numbers, corresponding to the distances along the x axis and up the y axis. In three dimensions, you just have a z axis as well. The numbers used in the system of representing points in space (or on a piece of paper) in this way are now known as Cartesian co-ordinates, after Descartes... Descartes's discovery meant that any geometric shape could be represented simply by a set of numbers... And any curved line drawn on paper (or, for example, the orbit of a planet around the Sun) could also be represented, in principle, by a series of numbers related to one another by a mathematical equation. When this discovery was fully worked out and eventually published, it transformed mathematics by making geometry susceptible to analysis using algebra, with repercussions that echo right down to the development of the theory of relativity and quantum theory in the twentieth century. Along the way, it was Descartes who introduced the convention of using letters at the beginning of the alphabet (a,b,c ...) to represent known (or specified) quantities, and letters at the end of the alphabet (especially x,y,z) to represent unknown quantities. And it was he who introduced the now familiar exponential notation... If he had done nothing else, laying all these foundations of analytical mathematics would have made Descartes a key figure in seventeenth-century science" (Gribben, The Scientists). On the history and importance of the second edition: "Within a few years of its publication, Descartes' La geometrie, originally written as an appendix to his Discours, was translated into Latin by Frans van Schooten and republished in its own right under the title Geometria in 1649. Ten years later van Schooten brought out a second edition, now expanded to two volumes by the commentary and research that had already accumulated around Descartes' text, much of it from van Schooten himself or from his pupils, such as Jan Hudde and Hendrik van Heuraet. Four treatises in this second edition were particularly concerned with equations, two by Florimond de Beaune and two by Jan Hudde" (Stedall, From Cardano's Great Art to Lagrange's Reflections). "In the second edition [of Geometria] (van Schooten 1659-1661), in two volumes, the commentaries were enlarged, and van Schooten included work by his students van Heuraet, Hudde, Huygens and de Witt. This edition served as the basic textbook for the generation that, in the last quarter of the century, took the lead in introducing differential and integral calculus" (Jahnke, A History of Analysis). Complete with half-titles and frontispiece portrait to volume I. An exquisitely-printed book, illustrated throughout with in-text diagrams. Geometria a Renato Des Cartes anno 1637 Gallice edita, postea autem una cum notis Florimondi de Beaune (...) in Latinam linguam versa & commentariis illustrata [ed. Franciscus van Schooten]. Amsterdam: L. & D. Elzevier, 1659 [Pt. 1] 1661 [Pt. 2]. Small quarto, contemporary full limp vellum. Two volumes. Text in Latin.

Nous n'avons pas trouvé dans les bibliographies consultées un tel ensemble. La description des fourneaux philosophiques est bien complète de toutes ses illustrations et des "Annotations" qui constituent la sixième partie qui manque souvent. Glauber est le Paracelse de son époque (Hoefer). Il fit de nombreuses découvertes en chimie (il découvre le sulfate de soude qu'on appelle alors le sel de Glauber et est l'un des premiers à avoir entrevu l'existence du chlore). Tout comme Paracelse, Glauber est partisan des opérations et des théories alchimiques. Ses travaux sur les recettes de panacées et autres médicaments merveilleux lui portèrent le même préjudice qu'à Paracelse. Dans cet ouvrage, que Ferguson considère comme l'un des livres de chimie les plus remarquables du 17ième siècle, Glauber décrit la fabrication des fourneaux et de leur utilisation pour la distillation, la préparation d'huiles, l'extraction, la séparation des métaux et la fabrication de baumes. Manque à Young, Duveen, Neville . L' appendix est relié en tête du volume 2.

      Paris: Guillaume Desprez, 1659. First edition, extremely rare (one of about 120 copies printed), of one of Pascal's most brilliant works. "Édition originale, extrêmement rare, de la dernière œuvre de Pascal, l'une des plus éclatantes de son génie" (Lucien Scheler in Tchemerzine, V, pp. 54-55). "Pascal devoted himself during 1658 and the first part of 1659 to the perfection of the "theory of indivisibles," an ancestor of the integral calculus. In 1658, after using the method of indivisibles to solve several infinitesimal problems relating to the cycloid, he proposed the problems he had solved as a challenge to other mathematicians, then announced his own superior solutions in four letters published in December 1658 and January 1659 under the pseudonym A. Dettonville. These pamphlets were collected in February 1659 under the above title. The structure of this work is very complex, with the first letter (Lettre de A. Dettonville à Monsieur de Carcavy) containing five separately paginated sections and the remaining three letters (Lettre de A. Dettonville à Monsieur A. D. D. S. ..., Lettre de A. Dettonville à Monsieur De Sluze ..., and Lettre de A. Dettonville à Monsieur Huggyens ([i.e., Huygens]) appearing in inverse order of their composition" (Norman). In a diagram (fig. 26) in the treatise Traité des Sinus du quart de Cercle, Pascal introduced what Leibniz later called the 'characteristic triangle' and used to establish the differential calculus. Pascal made us of it "to determine the sum of the sines (ordinates) of a portion of the curve, that is, the area under this portion. If Pascal had at this point only been more interested in arithmetic considerations and in the problem of tangents, he might have anticipated the important concept of the limit of a quotient and have discovered the significance of this for the determination of both tangents and quadratures. Had he done this, he would have hit upon the crucial point in the calculus some seven years before Newton and about fourteen years before Leibniz" (Boyer, p. 153). "Cette édition originale ne fut donc tirée qu'à 120 exemplaires, le tirage classique de l'époque étant d'environ 3000" ('Mémoires sur la vie de M. Pascal par Marguerite Périer, sa nièce,' p. 40 in Pascal, Œuvres complètes, Bibliothèques de la Pléiade, N.R.F., 1957 and Tchémerzine, V, 55). ABPC/RBH list six copies, those of Pierre Berge, Macclesfield, Norman, Bute, Honeyman and that of Jean Jacques Amelot, Seigneur de Chaillou (1689-1749). The Berge copy made $118,262 in 2015 ("contemporary vellum, loss to lower board, plates reinforced at folds, second plate detached"). Apart from these copies, we know of two that were sold in the French trade since 2000, a copy in contemporary vellum in 2005 for €295,000 and another in 2008 for €250,000. Our copy is complete with all four part-titles and the two-page Lettre de Monsieur de Carcavy à Monsieur Dettonville, some of which are often lacking (e.g., the Bute copy had only the first of the four part-titles). OCLC lists three copies in US (Harvard, NYPL, Yale). According to the testimony of Gilberte Périer, his sister, it was to forget very painful toothache that in 1657 Pascal suddenly resumed his mathematical research, interrupted since his religious conversion late in 1654. According to Pascal himself, the solution to the problem of finding the area of a cycloid (the path travelled by a point on a circle as it rolls along a plane) came to him in his sleep. Initially he wrote nothing of this discovery as he regarded it as a distraction from his work on religion, but his friend the Duke of Roannez pointed out that God may have provided this vision to give more strength to his work against atheists and libertines, because by showing them the depth of his genius they would be less likely to challenge his proofs of religious doctrine. "During 1658 and the first months of 1659 Pascal devoted most of his time to perfecting the "theory of indivisibles," a forerunner of the methods of integral calculus. This new theory enabled him to study problems involving infinitesimals: calculations of areas and volumes, determinations of centers of gravity, and rectifications of curves. "From the end of the sixteenth century many authors, including Stevin (1586), L. Valerio (1604), and Kepler (1609 and 1615), had tried to solve these fundamental problems by using simpler and more intuitive methods than that of Archimedes, which was considered a model of virtually unattainable rigor. The publication in 1635 of Cavalieri's Geometria marked the debut of the method of indivisibles; its principles, presentation, and applications were discussed and elaborated in the later writings of Cavalieri (1647 and 1653) and in those of Galileo (1638), Torricelli (1644), Guldin (1635-1641), Gregory of Saint-Vincent (1647), and A. Tacquet (1651). (The research of Fermat and Roberval on this topic remained unpublished.) The method, which assumed various forms, constituted the initial phase of development of the basic procedures of integral calculus, with the exception of the algorithm. "Pascal first referred to the method of indivisibles in a work on arithmetic of 1654, "Potestatum numericarum summa." He observed that the results concerning the summation of numerical powers made possible the solution of certain quadrature problems. As an example he stated a known result concerning the integral of xn for whole number n, in modern notation. This arithmetical interpretation of the theory of indivisibles permitted Pascal to give a sufficiently precise idea of the order of infinitude and to establish the natural relationship between "la mesure d'une grandeur continue" and "la sommation des puissances numériques." In the fragment "De l'esprit géométrique", composed in 1657, he returned to the notion of the indivisible in order to specify its relationship to the notions of the infinitely small and of the infinitely large and to refute the most widespread errors concerning it. "At the beginning of 1658 Pascal believed that he had perfected the calculus of indivisibles by refining his method and broadening its field of application. Persuaded that in this manner he had discovered the solution to several infinitesimal problems relating to the cycloid or roulette, he decided to challenge other mathematicians to solve these problems. Although rather complicated, the history of this contest is worth a brief recounting because of its important repercussions during a crucial phase in the birth of infinitesimal calculus. In an unsigned circular distributed in June 1658, Pascal stated the conditions of the contest and set its closing date at 1 October. In further unsigned circulars and pamphlets, issued between July 1658 and January 1659, he modified or specified certain of the conditions and announced the results. He also responded to the criticism of some participants and sought to demonstrate the importance and the originality of his own solutions. "Most of the leading mathematicians of the time followed the contest with interest, either as participants (A. de Lalouvère and J. Wallis) or as spectators working on one or several of the questions proposed by Pascal or on related problems--as did R. F. de Sluse, M. Ricci, Huygens, and Wren. Their solutions having been judged incomplete and marred by errors, Lalouvére and Wallis were eliminated. Their heated reactions to this decision were partially justified by the bias it displayed and the commentaries that accompanied it. This bias was the source of intense polemics concerning, in particular, the importance of Torricelli's original contribution. At the end of the contest Pascal published his own solutions to some of the original problems and to certain problems that had been added in the meantime. In December 1658 and January 1659 he brought out, under the pseudonym A. Dettonville, four letters setting forth the principles of his method and its applications to various problems concerning the cycloid, as well as to such questions as the quadrature of surfaces, cubature of volumes, determination of centers of gravity, and rectification of curved lines. In February 1659 these four pamphlets were collected in Lettres de A. Dettonville contenant quelques-unes de ses inventions de géométrie .... "This publication of some 120 pages has a very complex structure. The first of the Lettres consists of five sections with independent paginations, and the three others appear in inverse order of their composition. Thus only by returning to the original order is it possible to understand the logical sequence of the whole, follow the development of Pascal's method, and appreciate the influence on it of the new information he received and of his progress in mastering infinitesimal problems. "When he began the contest, Pascal knew of the methods and the chief results of Stevin, Cavalieri, Torricelli, Gregory of Saint-Vincent, and Tacquet; but he was not familiar with the bulk of the unpublished research of Roberval and Fermat. Apart from this information, and in addition to the arithmetical procedures that he applied, starting in 1654, to the solution of problems of the calculus of indivisibles, Pascal possessed a new method inspired by Archimedes. It was elaborated on a geometric foundation, its point of departure being the principle of the balance and the concepts of static moment and center of gravity. Pascal learned of the importance of the results obtained by Fermat and Roberval--notably in the study of the cycloid--at the time he issued his first circular. This information led him to modify the subject of the contest and to develop his own method further. Similarly, in August 1658, when he was informed of the result of the rectification of the cycloid, Pascal extended rectification to other arcs of curves and then undertook to determine the center of gravity of these arcs, as well as the area and center of gravity of the surfaces of revolution generated by their revolution about an axis. Consequently the Lettres present a method that is in continual development, appearing increasingly complex as it becomes more precise and more firmly based. The most notable characteristics of this work, which remained unfinished, are the importance accorded to the determination of centers of gravity, the crucial role of triangular sums and statical considerations, its stylistic rigor and elegance, and the use of a clear and precise geometric language that partially compensates for the absence of algebraic symbolism. Among outstanding contributions of the work are the discovery of the equality of curvature of the generalized cycloid and the ellipse; the deepening of the concept of the indivisible; a first step toward the concept of the definite integral and the determination of its fundamental properties; and the indirect recourse to certain methods of calculation, such as integration by parts. "Assimilated and exploited by Pascal's successors, these innovations contributed to the elaboration of infinitesimal methods. His most productive contribution, however, appears to have been his implicit use of the characteristic triangle. Indeed, Leibniz stated that Pascal's writings on the characteristic triangle were an especially fruitful stimulus for him. This testimony from one of the creators of infinitesimal calculus indicates that Pascal's work marked an important stage in the transition from the calculus of indivisibles to integral calculus" (DSB). As noted in Sotheby's Macclesfield sale catalogue, the four works contained in this volume were separately printed, and the first item, Lettres ... a Monsieur Carcavy, was printed in two shops. The Lettre de M. de Carcavy, Lettre de M.D. a M. de C. and Traité générale de la roulette were printed in shop A. The Traité des trilignes rectangles, Traité des sinus, and Petit traité des solides circulaires were printed in shop B. Desprez was, as it were, the official publisher for Port Royal, and published the Pensées in 1670, the second edition, and what became the textus receptus in 1678 (see H.J. Martin, 'Guillaume Desprez, libraire de Pascal & de Port-Royal', Le Livre français sous l'ancien régime (Paris: Promodis, 1987), pp. 65-78).

        Erste und Eylfertige Antwort. auff M. Bernhard Schmitts Discurs 'De Reputatione Academica'. (u. vorgebunden:) Eylfertiges Sendschreiben an den Calenderschreiber zu Leipzig. Zus. mit 3 weiteren Schriften Schupps in 1 Band.

      - Altena, gedruckt bey Victor de Leeu, 1659. 12mo. 1 Bl., 70 S.; 48 S. Pergament d. Zeit (etwas fleckig u. wellig, Bezug stellenw. an den Kanten geplatzt). Der Marburger Theologe Johann Balthasar Schupp (1610-61) war einer der größten Kanzelredner seiner Zeit. Seit 1648 war er Pastor zu St. Jacobi in Hamburg, wo seine "oft scharf gesellschaftskritischen Predigten" sich "größten Zulaufs" erfreuten. Hier griff er, wie auch in seinen populären Schriften, ins volle Leben, gebrauchte "drastische Beispiele", schlug überhaupt einen "volkstümlichen, derben Ton an". In seiner Zeit erregte Schupp die Eifersucht seiner Amtskollegen, mit denen er jahrelange Polemiken, in die auch Schüler und auswärtige Theologen eingriffen, ausgefochten hat. So haben etwa Schupps Äußerungen über Universitäten und das akademische Studium in seiner Schrift "Freund in der Not", eine "Unterweisung eines Vaters an seinen Sohn beim Verlassen des Elternhauses", den Dresdner Magister Bernhard Schmitt veranlaßt, Schupp als einen Feind der Hochschulen zu brandmarken. In der "ersten und eylfertigen Antwort" und dann auch wieder in dem "eylfertigen Sendschreiben" setzt sich Schupp gegen Schmitt vehement zur Wehr. In dem "Sendschreiben" geht er gar einen Schritt weiter: Als das Gerücht auftauchte, zu Leipzig wolle einer seinen "Calender" angreifen, entschloß sich Schupp sofort zum Präventivangriff - und der angekündigte Gegner trat klugerweise gar nicht erst hervor. - 1: VD 17 23:251341G; Dünnhaupt 71.2. - Eine von 4 Druckvarianten. - 2: VD 17 23:251334Y; vgl.

        JUSHI KEI HAKKI SHO: INTRODUCTION FOR THE FOURTEEN CHANNELS TEACHINGS OF ACCUPUN

      - Kyoto 1659, Yoshinoya. Recent stiff brown stitched covers,10 vols. bound in 5 volumes, 17.7 x 26.5 cm., pagination:volume 1:35; 2:28; 3:41 ;4:38; 5:39; 6:46; 7:46; 8:38; 9:23; 10:35, a touch of minor old marginal worming, solid, complete. RARE This is an important and early work, on Chinese acupuncture, rewritten by a Japanese. * This work was originally written in Chinese, now it has that text, but with the addition of Japanese grammatical marks, Furigana and written in Kambun [Japanese version of a Chinese text]. * The work contains 37 fine full page illustrations showing period Chinese men, the various points of the "Fourteen Channels" for acupuncture, also the same points were used for acupressure and moxibustion. *** THE AUTHOR/EDITOR/"EXPLAINER" TANIMURA Gensen was the editor or "explainer" of the work. The FIRST EDITION was written 1659 by KATSU Ju [Jiu] with title JIU SHI KIYO HAKKI. TANIMURA slightly changed the title, but the work remains the same. Beginning on Mestler's p.473, he states: "KATSU Ju [alias = Hakunin which is a Japanese reading of a Chinese name and so is KATSU Ju]." was a Chinese physician of the Ming period [1368-1644] & prolific writer on Traditional Chinese medicine such as acupuncture and the "Fourteen Channels" of acupuncture, and the use of moxa and one of the early introducers of Chinese medicine to Japan. "The original [First Japanese Edition] of the publication was 1684, under title JUSHIKEI [or JUSHIKO] HAKKI.later also "explained" again by the celebrated and famous OKAMOTO Ippo under the title JUSHIKEI RAKI WAGO." Mestler p.474. *** THE ILLUSTRATIONS: The majority of the full-page illustrations show various men front, rear, side views, with a key to the various acupuncture points, each carefully labeled. There are a few other illustrations of internal organs, heart, liver, intestines &c. There about 20 excellent illustrations of acupuncture needles, lancelets which are the instruments of acupuncture. . vol.1: 2 + shows 18 acupuncture needles and lancelets vol.2: 0 vol.3: 16 illustrations vol.4: 4 " vol.5: 4 " vol.6: 4 " vol.7: 3 ' vol.8: 2 " vol.9: 2 " vol.10: 0 " *** CONTAINED IN CLOTH CHITSU OR FOLDING CASE: The whole complete set is placed inside of an recent [past 50-75 years] indigo-blue cloth Chitsu [folding case] with 2 bone clasps. *** CONDITION: The work was rebound in the last 50-75 years with newer covers. There is a touch of old worming mostly small holes in the margins, or leading edges, loss of text very minimal. Otherwise the work is printed on very clean, bright Washi hand-made Japanese paper. The characters are bold and bright with good registry. There are a few pages that have some black Sumi ink stain near the leading edges, text is still completely legible. The set of 10 volumes are bound in 5 uniform parts, stitched with a brown silk [?] thread. The set is solidly bound, all pages firm . *** REFERENCES: WHITNEY, Willis N.: NOTES ON THE HISTORY OF MEDICAL PROGRESS IN JAPAN, pp.419, #430, listed as JIU SHI KIYO HAKKI, that ? author is cited as KATSU JIU [died 1368], published 1659. * MESTLER, Gordon E. A GALAXY OF OLD JAPANESE MEDICAL BOOKS WITH MISCELLANEOUS NOTES ON EARLY MEDICINE IN JAPAN. Mestler has pointed out on pp.473-474 the original Japanese edition ".published in 1684 with title Jushikei [or Jushikyo Hakki]." was complete in one volume but was in two parts, authored by KATSU Ju [aka HAKUNIN] who was a Chinese physician who lived in the Ming dynasty. It clear that TANIMURA came across this text, and rewrote it from the original Chinese into Kambun for Japanese physicians. . We believe this work to be correctly attributed to KATSU Ju and later renamed by the Japanese, per the above. Mestler also illustrates an example on p.475, as plate figure B. This shows the measurements from "point to point" in the Fourteen Channels. Other entries for KATSU Ju on pp.303, 189 footnote 21. . Therefore, TANIMURA Gensen wrote a summary of the Ju-shi-Kyo Hakki-Sho, a summary of Ju
