        Carta particolare della costa di Chilue e' di Chica parte Australe de Cili

      Florence 1661 - Map of the Chilean coast from Sir Robert Dudley's Arcano del Mare (Florence: 1661). Copperplate engraving, sheet size 21 x 16 1/4 inches, excellent condition. Robert Dudley's splendid Dell' Arcano del Mare (Secrets of the Sea), is the first marine atlas to employ the Mercator projection. In using the projection developed by Mercator, Dudley improved upon the theory of navigating by the “Great Circle,” the shortest distance between two points on a globe. It would be the eighteenth century before cartographers used the projection consistently, and during the great Dutch period of cartography not one atlas was produced using it. Although Dell’ Arcano del Mare was published in Italy, it is considered the first printed English nautical atlas. Dudley’s monumental work was the only exception to the total dominance of sea atlas production by the Dutch for nearly a century. Arguably the most sumptuous marine atlas ever produced, it contained no less than 146 sea charts, and dozens of illustrations and working diagrams. It was superior to any previous work in that the charts illustrated the whole world, the first time any outside of Europe had been included. Dell’ Arcano del Mare was also the first atlas to show the prevailing winds, currents and magnetic deviation. One of the great marine atlases of all time, the work was magnificently engraved, an encyclopedia of 17th-century knowledge regarding the seas. Robert Dudley was one of the more colorful characters in the history of mapmaking. He was the illegitimate son of the Earl of Leicester, and in 1605 he abducted a beautiful heiress and fled England. He entered the service of the Duke of Tuscany as an engineer and naval commander, and he spent the rest of his life in Italy. In 1646 in Florence he published Dell’ Arcano del Mare, which besides the many beautifully calligraphic charts included detailed texts on navigation, shipbuilding and naval warfare, the whole written in Italian by Dudley himself. The atlas was twelve years in the making, and the main innovation lay in its conception of a world atlas of charts, both general ocean charts and detailed surveys, covering all the rival spheres of European do-minion: Spanish, English and Dutch. Dudley’s Dell’ Arcano del Mare is a monument in marine cartography, representing the culmination of his passion for the waters of the world and all that they had to offer.

        Prosp. Du Palais de Duc d’Orleans. Wiesolchez auff der Seitten im Garten anzufeben (Gardens at the Palace of the Duke d’ Orleans, Saint-Cloud)

      Frankfurt 1661 - Mathias Merian the Elder (1593-1650) was one of the most prominent members of the leading print publishing family of 17th-century Germany, known throughout Europe for his engravings of cityscapes and landscapes, his scientific books, and his editions of the noted series of travel books, the “Great Voyages”. Born and trained in Basel, Switzerland in the early 1600’s he began studying drawing, engraving and etching in Zurich with engraver Friedrich Meyer. Merian joined the Frankfurt publishing house of Johann Theodor de Bry in 1616 and, the following year, he married de Bry’s daughter Maria Magdalena. Merian gained his greatest acclaim as head of the family publishing house following the death of his father-in-law in 1623. He rapidly and almost single-handedly built up the house to become one of the most important in Europe, etching most of the plates himself until about 1645, when he increasingly relied upon the help of a growing staff of assistants and pupils, among them Wenceslaus Hollar, Rudolf and Conrad Meyer of Zurich, and his sons Matthaus and Casper. “Topographia Galliae” was published from 1655 to 1661 in partnership with Martin Zeiller who wrote the text. “Topographia Galliae” was one of the largest and most comprehensive publishing’s of the Gaul region of its time with engravings of major European cities and historically important locations, each expertly engraved by Merian and his sons. In total, “Topographia Galliae” is comprised of 13 parts in four volumes, with nine engraved additional titles and 321 individually detailed engravings with maps and views of cities, towns, castles, fortresses and monasteries. This single page engraving from “Topographia Galliae” titled “Prosp. Du Palais de Duc d’Orleans. Wiesolchez auff der Seitten im Garten anzufeben” measures 11.75" x 11.75" and is in good condition with evidence of previous repair to the central crease and light wrinkling along the central crease. This engraving is finely detailed and shows a view of the gardens at the Palace of the Duke d'Orleans, Saint Cloud. The Duke of Orleans, Phillip I, was the younger brother to King Louis XIV. The famous cascade in the garden was designed by Antoine Le Pautre and constructed between 1664 and 1665. This engraving shows a wide-angle view of the chateau and the gardens being enjoyed by visitors. The landscape is seen to extend far beyond the trees adding to the expansive chateau.

        De Centro Gravitatis Solidorum Libri Tres...in hac nostra editione, servata ad unguem Auctoris mente, multò correctiores

      Woodcut printer's device on title & numerous woodcut diagrams in the text. 4 p.l., 260 pp. 4to, cont. limp boards (a little soiled, unimportant marginal dampstaining). Bologna: Heirs of Ducci, 1661. Second edition, combining the De Centro Gravitatis Solidorum and the Quadratura parabola; this edition contains important authorial additions and corrections. These two texts had a considerable influence on Galileo and his studies on motion. Valerio (1552-1618), who had studied under Clavius, met Galileo in Pisa in 1590 and influenced him to renew his studies on the centers of gravity. In 1609 they began an extensive correspondence on problems of motion and mathematics. It was during this time that Galileo was preparing his treatise on motion and mechanics which later became the Discorsi of 1638. "In December 1612, having completed his Sunspot Letters, Galileo considered having the Linceans print his work on centers of gravity of paraboloids, probably in the form of a letter to Luca Valerio. Ensuing correspondence shows that he sent this to Cesi, who in discussing the matter with Valerio found that he was then revising his own book on a similar subject, published in 1603-4. Galileo accordingly gracefully withdrew his work from publication at this time, for which Valerio expressed his gratitude. In fact Valerio did not reprint his book, and Galileo eventually placed his investigations of centers of gravity in an appendix to his own last book in 1638."­Drake, Galileo at Work, p. 202. Valerio's influence on Galileo, through his correspondence and these two books, was enormous, and he was singled out for praise in the Discorsi; where he is described as "our greatest geometer, the New Archimedes of our age." This was high praise indeed, for Valerio was critical of Galileo's Copernicanism and had been expelled from the Accademia dei Lincei in 1616 for his views. "Valerio's De centro gravitatis consists of the application of Archimedean methods to the determination of the volumes and centers of gravity of the various solids of rotation and their segments...Among the mathematicians who studied him and spoke highly of him were Cavalieri, Torricelli, and J. C. de la Faille. He also had a direct influence on Guldin, Gregorius Saint Vincent, and Tacquet."­D.S.B., XIII, pp. 560-61. Fine copy, preserved in a calf-backed box. Ex Bibliotheca Mechanica. M.E.

        The East front of Kensington Palace, with part of the Great Lawn / Façade Orientale du Palais de Kensington, avec une partie du Grand Gazone

      Robert Sayer and John Bowles & Son [no date], London - A very fine image of Kensington Palace and its expansive grounds. Erected in 1661 for the Earl of Nottingham, Kensington Palace became the royal residence of William III in 1689. Over the years, it underwent various renovations by architects such as Nicholas Hawksmoor and Sir Christopher Wren. The palace was surrounded by an extensive park, the vast grounds of which are pictured here, that was expanded and laid out by the celebrated garden designers Henry Wise and Charles Bridgeman. Visible on the far left side of this beautiful print is one of the formal tree-lined avenues that were characteristic of the park. John Tinney was both an engraver and "a print seller, and carried on business at the Golden Lion in Fleet Street, London, where all his own works were published. His mezzotint plates include portraits of Lavinia Fenton, after John Ellys; George III, after Joseph Highmore; Chief Baron Parker; and John Wesley; also some fancy subjects after Boucher, Lancret, Rosalba, Correggio, and others. He engraved in line a set of ten views of Hampton Court and Kensington Palace, after Anthony Highmore, and some of Fontainebleau and Versailles, after Jean Rigaud. Some of the plates in Ball's Antiquities of Constantinople , 1729, are also by him. Tinney is now remembered as the master of the distinguished engravers William Woollett, Anthony Walker, and John Browne." ( DNB ) Cf. Dictionary of National Biography. Hand-coloured engraving, printed on laid paper backed with a 20th-century archival sheet. Very good condition apart from some light soiling and a 5/8" tear along the bottom edge of a larger skillfully repaired tear that runs through the right side of the image and spans the height of the sheet.

Not in Fowler and many other standard references. Quite scarce contemporary publication of Osio's simplified method for the construction of the orders of architecture through angles alone, without arithmetic divisions and without modules. Initially published in Milan in 1641 (of the greatest scarcity). In fact, any early editions are excessively difficult to encounter, for Osio represents a Neanderthal line of architectural reasoning. He was a principal source for the writings of Guarini, but his approach ultimately proved to be unproductive as architecture developed according to strict measured drawings based upon mathematics and other sciences. Imagine the Hoover Dam built in the method of the pyramids, with someone standing on an adjacent hill and giving instructions based on what he saw instead of relying on the physics of poured concrete, knowledge of the pressure of water, and an understanding of the geological features.

        Discoveries of the Day Dawning to the Jewes. Whereby they may know in what state they shall inherit the riches and glory of Promise.

      printed for Thomas Simmons, at the sign of the Bull and Mouth near Aldersgate, London 1661 - 14 pages (page 2 is blank verso of title page; page 14 is blank verso of last leaf). Signed: Johan, in Hebrew characters. 4°. 15, [1] p.; 19 cm. References: Wing (2nd ed.); P1615 Scans available upon request. Jews Conversion to Christianity Society of Friends. Signatures: A-B4. PERROT, JOHN (d. 1671?), Quaker sectary, born in Ireland, was possibly descended, though not legitimately, from Sir John Perrot [q. v.], lord-deputy "of Ireland. It is hardly likely that he was the John Perrot fined 2,000/. in the Star-chamber on 27 Jan. 1637, and arraigned before the court of high commission on 14 and 21 Nov. 1639 (Cal. State Papers, Dom. 1636-7 p. 398, 1639-40 pp. 271, 277). Before 1656 Perrot joined the Quakers, and was preaching in Limerick. The next year he started, with the full authority of the Quaker body and at its expense, with one John Love, also an Irishman, on a mission to Italy, avowedly to convert the pope. Perrot passed through Lyons, and on 12 Aug. 1657 he was at Leghorn. There he wrote a treatise concerning the Jews, and both travellers were examined by the inquisition and dismissed. In September, diverging from their original route, they reached Athens, whence Perrot wrote an' Address to the People called Baptists in Ireland.' A manuscript copy is in the library of Devonshire House. He also wrote an epistle to the Greeks from ' Egripos,' that is the island of Negroponte (now called Eubcea). Returning to Venice, he interviewed the doge in his palace, and presented him with books and an address, afterwards printed. A work dated from the Lazaretto in Venice indicates either that he had fallen ill or was in prison. On arriving in Rome, probably in 1658, Perrot and Love commenced preaching against the Romish church, and were arrested. Love suffered the tortures of the inquisition and died under them. Perrot, whose zeal knew no bounds, was more appropriately sent to a madhouse, where he was allowed some liberty and wrote numerous books, addresses, and epistles. These he was suffered to send to England to be printed, and many of them appeared before his release; His detention excited much sympathy in England. Samuel Fisher (1605-1655) [q.v.], John Stubbs, and other Friends went to Rome in 1660 to procure his freedom. Two other Friends, Charles Bayley and Jane Stokes, also unsuccessfully attempted it, Bayley being imprisoned at Bordeaux on the way out. Some account of his experiences he contributed to Perrot's 'Narrative,' 1661. In May 1661 Perrot was released; but on his return to London he was received with some coldness. He was accused of extravagant behaviour while abroad. Fox and others condemned the papers issued by him from Rome, one of which propounded that the removal of the hat during prayer in public was a formal superstition, incompatible with the spiritual religion professed by Quakers. This notion gained ground rapidly, and was adopted for a time by Thomas Ell wood [q.v.] and Benjamin Furly [q. v.] ; but Fox at once attacked 'it in a tract issued in 1661 (Journal, ed. 1765, p. 332). Perrot was unconvinced, although many of his friends soon forsook him. He was indefatigable in preaching his opinions in various parts of England or Ireland, and attracted large audiences. He was arrested, with Luke Howard (1621-1699) [q. v.], at a meeting at Canterbury on 28 Aug. 1661, and again at the Bull and Mouth, Aldersgate Street, on a Sunday in June 1662, when he was brought before Sir Richard Browne (d. 1669) [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

      Hagae: Ex Typographia Adriani Vlacq, 1661. First Edition. Full Leather. Very Good binding. Folio. Important work by French Astrologer Jean Baptiste Morin, who was the royal astrologer to the House of Bourbon. He was present at the birth of Louis XIV in order to observe the exact time of his birth for casting his horoscope. Consisting of 26 books of complex Latin text, and covering natal, judicial, meterological, and other aspects of astrology, it is considered by some to be the most important astrology book ever written. Red and white title embellished with a woodcut device. Diagrams in text. This copy seems to be lacking a portrait of Morin as well as the "Syllabus Capitum Huius Operis" (I believe a 12 page table of contents typically bound at the end)--there is no evidence of its removal, so probably not bound in. Additionally, there appears to be a missing leaf preceding the "Vita" in the preliminaries. Everything else seems to be in order -- a complete statement of collation is available upon request. Bound in 17th century speckled calf with raised bands and gold tooling in the compartments; contemporary spine label present; some loss to the leather at the head and tail of the spine; edges of the textblock are nicely sprinkled in red and perhaps brown or faded green. Previous owner has stamped his name insignia (an encircled owl in style of Ancient Egypt) a number of time throughout the book including twice on the title page. Very Good binding.

Bookplate of J.[osé] Pinto Ferreira. ---- First Edition in the original Portuguese, rare. A translation into French had been printed in Paris in 1659. Apparently it is @Raisons fort puissantes pour faire voir l'obligation qu'a la France d'appuyer l'intérêt de Portugal dans le traité de la paix, Paris, 1659, of which only one copy seems to exist, at the Bibliothèque nationale de France. D. João da Costa, first Conde de Soure, Ambassador of Portugal to France, had his secretary, Duarte Ribeiro de Macedo, draw up these strenuous objections to France negotiating a separate peace with Spain, shortly prior to the conclusion of the Treaty of the Pyrenees. Cardinal Mazarin was greatly annoyed. In fact the printing of this manifesto in French translation in Paris in 1659 caused such consternation that the Cardinal ordered the imprisonment of the printer and translator; the translator sought asylum in the home of the Portuguese Ambassador.The Treaty of the Pyrenees resulted in withdrawal of France's support for Portuguese independence at a crucial juncture, allowing Spain to advance against Portugal with renewed vigor. Nevertheless Portugal was able to resist, and Spain recognized Portuguese independence in the Treaty of Lisbon, 1668.In the preliminary leaves are included an introduction by Duarte Ribeiro de Macedo addressed to the Portuguese king, stating that the publication at this time of the @Discurso in the original Portuguese was to counter the protests against it by Mazarin (second preliminary leaf recto-third preliminary leaf recto). João de Royas e Azevedo presents similar arguments (bottom of third preliminary leaf recto-fourth preliminary leaf verso).Duarte Ribeiro de Macedo (Lisbon 1618?-Alicante 1680) is known for his efforts to end the economic crisis in Portugal during the second half of the seventeenth century. Influenced by Colbert, he was responsible for outlining a plan for industrial growth, and favored the development of national crafts for export as a way of obtaining gold and balancing external trade. Ribeiro de Macedo realized that the loss of much of India inevitably meant a drastic change in Portugal's commerce and finance. It is ironic that his excellent plans for industrialization were discarded because another colony provided a temporary solace for Portugal's economic ills: gold was discovered in Minas Geraes in 1692. Macedo received his degree in law from Coimbra University. He eventually became an advisor to D. Pedro II, and Ambassador to France and Spain. He is also considered one of the classic Portuguese writers, in fact one of the greatest prose writers in the history of the language. Barbosa Machado writes that he had "hum estilo claro, e discreto." Innocêncio notes, "Occupa um logar mui pouco; mas o que d'elle temos foi o que bastou para os criticos lhe daram logar entre os classicos de primeira nota." @Provenance: J.[osé] Pinto Ferreira, Portuguese army officer, was a distinguished book collector who had significant Camoneana and much on the Restauração, as well as a trove of other books on Portuguese military history. ---- Arouca M26.

        A TREATISE OF THE SIBYLS

      London, printed by T(homas) R(oycroft) for the author, 1661.so highly celebrated, as well by the antient heathens, as the holy fathers of the church; giving an accompt of the names, and number of the Sibyls, of their qualities, the form and matter of their verses; as also of the books now extant under their names, and the errours crept into Christian religion, from the impostures contained therein, particularly, concerning the state of the just, and unjust after death. ... Englished by J. Davies. FIRST ENGLISH EDITION, 1661. Folio, 285 x 185 mm, 11¼ x 7¼ inches, pages: (4), 293, (7), head - pieces and decorated initials to chapter headings, bound in full contemporary calf, blind - tooled border to covers, rebacked in lighter leather, gilt rules and original gilt lettered label to spine, new endpapers.

A very good copy. DAVID BLONDEL (1591 - 1655), was a French Protestant clergyman, historian and classical scholar. In 1650 he succeeded G. J. Vossius in the professorship of history at Amsterdam. His works were very numerous; in some of them he showed a remarkable critical faculty, as in his dissertation on Pope Joan (1647, 1657), in which he came to the conclusion, now universally accepted, that the whole story is a mere myth. Considerable Protestant indignation was excited against him on account of this book. His work on the Sibyls of classical times was first published in French in 1649.
