        1-3.

      (Stockholm, 1661-1715, 1726.) Tvär folio. Grav. titel,+ 13 s. uppmonterade på 4 folioblad,+ 149 grav. planscher; grav. titel,+ 75 grav. planscher; grav titel,+ 149 grav. planscher. Sammanlagt 353 graverade planscher, inklusive titelbladen. Ett stort antal av planscherna är liksom registret uppfodrade på stort papper för att överensstämma i storlek med övriga planscher. Detta papper omkring första titelbladet har senare papperslagning i nedre hörnet. De två kungaporträtten är uppmonterade senare. En plansch, Jönköping, med papperslagning. Samtliga planscher med gammal bläcknumrering i övre hörnet. Enstaka småfläckar. Nött nära samtida skinnband, guldornerad rygg med upphöjda bind och fin men senare brun titeletikett, pärmarna med Carl Ehrenpreus förgyllda pärmstämpel, röda snitt. Bandet är fint renoverat vid slutet av 1800- eller början av 1900-talet och försett med nya pärmpapper och för- och eftersättsblad (eventuellt av Hedberg). Rödstämpel på första titelbladet. Lindberg, Swedish books, 37. Warmholtz 207. Hesse 682. Carlander II, s. 312ff. Registret sammanställdes av Harald Schening och trycktes 1726. Komplett exemplar, utan extraplanschen Svenska kyrkan i London. "Svecia antiqua et hodierna" är den svenska stormaktstidens främsta manifestation i bokform. Här skulle Sveriges storhet visas upp för omvärlden; varje stad, slott och palats, fornminnen och borgar skulle vara med. Arbetet påbörjades i början av 1660-talet av Eric Dahlberg (1625-1703). Han utförde själv merparten av förlagorna till planscherna, skötte kontakten med och övervakade de utländska kopparstickarna i Paris och Holland. Arbetet övertogs senare delvis av Samuel Åkerhielm. När Dahlberg dog 1703 var verket fortfarande ofullbordat men avslutades av bl.a. Johan Lithén, D. Klöcker Ehrenstrahl, tecknaren och gravören J. Aveelen samt Elias Brenner som bidrog med egna teckningar och övervakade arbetet av de sista 47 planscherna som graverades 1709-15. Total var 18 konstnärer engagerade i verkets tillkomst. Någon fullständig text till verket blev aldrig färdigt. Den första delen innehåller Stockholm och Uppland, den andra delen Södermanland, Närke, Norrland och Åland, och den tredje Östergötland och Götaland. En fjärde del, som skulle ha omfattat stormaktstidens erövrade provinser blev aldrig utförd. Carl Didrik Ehrenpreus (1692-1760), riksråd och kansler för Uppsala akademi, var både stor boksamlare och myntsamlare, och deltog i sin ungdom i kalabaliken i Bender. Hans boksamling såldes i Stockholm efter tryckt förteckning 1761. Sin myntsamling sålde han till Uppsala akademi. Vid sidan av sin ämbetsmannabana, var han en av de ledande hattarna, och en av dem vars karriär tog fart efter partivälvningen 1739, då utnämnd till riksråd och medlem av sekreta utskottet. Som fornforskare gick han i senrudbeckianismens spår och prisade Göransson och ansåg Björner djupsinnig. Han fördjupade sig själv, vid sidan av mynten, även i runstudiet

        ASTROLOGIA GALLICA Principiis & Rationibus Propiis Stabilita, Atque in XXVI Libros Distributa. Non Solum Astrologiae Judiciarae Studiosis, Set Etiam Philosophis, Medicis & Theologis. Opera & Studio

      Hagae: Ex Typographia Adriani Vlacq, 1661. First Edition. Full Leather. 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.

The present work reprints John Dee's preface to Henry Billingsley's 1570 English translation of Euclid, "The most influential of all Dee's published works" (ODNB). In it, Dee praises the study of mathematics and its application to both the natural and supernatural, although he defends himself at some length from the charge of conjuring. "His concept of 'Archemastrie', which 'procedeth by Experiences' ... has been seen by some as foreshadowing the experimental science of the next century, but he also hints at magical interests and practices under this very heading.

        Technica curiosa, sive mirabilia artis, libri XII. comprehensa; quibus varia experimenta, variaque technasmata pneumatica, hydraulica, hydrotechnica, mechanica, graphica, cyclometrica, chronometrica, automatica, cabalistica, aliaque artis arcana ac miracula, rara, curiosa, ingeniosa, magnamque partem nova & antehac inaudita, eruditi orbis utilitati, delectationi, disceptationique proponuntur?Nürnberg: Jobus Hertz for the heirs of J.A. and W. Endter, 1664. First edition.

      A very good and fully complete copy of "one of the most complete accounts of the physical experiments and technological inventions of mid-seventeenth-century science, especially valuable for its description of Guericke's research with the vacuum pump [illustrated here for the first time, see below] and for the first appearance of Guericke's letters to Schott (1661-62). Also described are Boyle's experiments with his vacuum pump ... Accounts are given of early investigations with the diving bell, Torricelli's experiments with the barometer, perpetual motion, chronometry, thermometers, and many other subjects A richly illustrated treasure house in the history of physical sciences." (Neville Library).<br/><br/> Norman 1911; Barchas 1890; Stanitz 41; Wheeler Gift 155bis; Jesuit Science in the Age of Galileo 35; Honeyman 2826; De Vitry 758; Bibliothèque Jean-Louis Mosès 158.<br/><br/> "The most famous of Guericke's public experiments is the one of the Magdeburg hemispheres, in which he placed together two copper hemispheres, milled so that the edges fit together snugly. He then evacuated the air from the resulting sphere and showed that a most heavy weight could not pull them apart. Contrary to legend, the demonstration was performed with a team of horses for the first time in Magdeburg in 1657 (not Regensburg in 1654) and repeated at court in Berlin in 1663. Guericke also made other, less dramatic, public demonstrations of the effectiveness of air pressure on several occasions in Regensburg; these Regensburg experiments were reported by Gaspar Schott in <i>Mechanica hydraulico-pneunmaica</i> (1657) [but without the famous illustration] and <i>Technica curiosa</i> (1664) [with the famous plate which Guericke's himself published later in 1672], and were supplemented with additional information that Guericke communicated by letter." (DSB under Guericke). <br/><br/> "Schott first published what had originally been intended as a brief guide to the hydraulic and pneumatic instruments in Kircher's Roman museum, expanding it into the first version of his <i>Mechanica hydraulico-pneumatica</i> [1657]. But he added as an appendix a detailed account of Guericke's experiments on vacuums, the earliest published report of this work. This supplement contributed greatly to the success of Schott's compendium; and as a result he became the center of a network of correspondence as other Jesuits, as well as lay experimenters and mechanicians, wrote to inform him of their inventions and discoveries. Schott exchanged several letters with Guericke, seeking to draw him out by suggesting new problems, and published his later investigations. He also corresponded with Huygens and was the first to make Boyle's work on the air pump widely known in Germany. Schott repeated Guericke's experiments, and later those of Boyle, at Würzburg, as well as some medical experiments on the effects of intravenous injections." (DSB under Schott). <br/><br/> "The first two sections [pp. 1-181] of <i>Technica curiosa</i> are devoted to aerostatic researches of Guericke and Boyle, and the treatise 'Mirabilia chronometrica' gives the first description of a universal joint and a classification of gear teeth." (Norman).. 2 parts in 1 volume, thick 4to (202 x 160 mm), contemporary vellum, entirely unrestored, a light marginal damp stain throught most of the first part, otherwise fine and clean, corner of page 447/448 with paper flaw (just effecting the catch word, no text loss), fully complete with all 64 engravings (including the engraved title, portrait, and coat of arms), pp [42: including half-title, engraved title, letter press title, portrait frontispiece, and full-page coat of arms] 1-579 [1:blank]; [2: part title] 583-1044 [14: index] [2: catalogue of Schott's publications].

        Andreæ Alciati Emblemata cum commentarijs Claudij Minois,

      Francisci Sanctij ... & notis Laurentij Pignorij ... Opera et vigilijs Ioannis Thuilij.., engraved additional title, title with printer's woodcut device, lxxx, 1001pp thick quarto, with 211 [of 212] fine woodcut emblems within elaborate frames, contemporary limp vellum (this torn at hinge but could repair, no loss), preliminaries with some staining in upper corner but this moderate, pages 21/22 and 23/24 loose and creased at edges, pages 25/26 and 27/28 missing (with the loss of the woodcut for emblem five), a few minor blemishes, "Patauij, typis Pauli Frambotti Bibliopolae", 1661. This edition not in BL online catalogue. Andrea Alciato's Emblematum liber or Book of Emblems had enormous influence and popularity in the 16th and 17th centuries. It is a collection of 212 Latin emblem poems, each consisting of a motto (a proverb or other short enigmatic expression), a picture, and an epigrammatic text. Alciato's book was first published in 1531, and was expanded in various editions during the author's lifetime. It began a craze for emblem poetry that lasted for several centuries. Andreas Alciat was born on May 8, 1492 in Milan or nearby Alzate, the son of a prosperous merchant. He was a successful lawyer and university professor and lived at various times in Milan, Bologna, Avignon, and Paris. He died on January 12, 1550. Alciat's Liber Emblemata was the first of many emblem books that were the literary vogue in the 16th century. At this time interest in the newly rediscoved Egyptian hieroglyphics ran high among the educated and the emblem books were, in part, an attempt to define a pictographic language. Alciat compiled his first collection of emblems in 1522. The first printing was in 1531. It was reprinted no less than 130 times between 1532 and 1790. A photograph of this book can be sent on request.
