Ihre Benennung als 'Theatrum machinarum' verweist auf die zentrale Rolle, die den darin ausgebreiteten Abbildungen zukommt. Sie vermitteln technische Ideen, die, wenn überhaupt, meist erst viel später Verwirklichung fanden, trugen aber mit ihrem Ideenreichtum zu einem grösseren Interesse an technischen Sachverhalten bei. Der Zeitraum in dem diese Drucke florierten, zerfällt in zwei Perioden: nach Böcklers" Theatrum machinarum novum", das als opulent illustriertes Schaubuch noch einmal vor allem auch dem Un … [Click Below for Full Description]

GOEDAERT, J.
1662. Medioburgi, J, Fierens, (1662-1669). 3 volumes bound in one. 8vo (152 x 100mm). pp. (30), 236; (32), 259; (16), 159, with 3 engraved frontispieces, 1 engraved portrait of Goedaert, 1 engraved coat of arms and 152 engraved plates printed on 126 leaves. Contemporary calf, spine in 5 compartments (rubbed). The first Latin edition published in the same years as the Dutch edition. Johannes Goedaert (1617-1668) was a famous Dutch landscape and flower painter who lived all his life in Middelburg. "No botanical or zoological drawings are extant. An impression of them however is conveyed by his 'Metamorphosis Naturalis' with its 126 superb engravings. The book describes the results of his investigation into the metamorphosis of insects, accompanied by a large amount of original observations, some of which were prompted by experiments with his own cultures. The book stood model for several other celebrated treatises on the subject, for example Maria Sibylla Merian" (Segal, Flowers and nature, p. 198). A small number of pages somewhat browned as is mostly the case with this book. Provenance: Bookplate of John Cookney on inside frontcover and old signature of D'Apples on title. Nissen ZBI, 1602..

HALLEY, Edmund.
Exceptional copy (uncut, stitched as issued), of this hugely influential paper in the history of statistics, in which Halley produced the first life table based on sound demographic data, and gave the first correct calculation of annuities, using essentially the same methods that are still used today. "Halley's paper became of great importance to actuarial science... It is a singular proof of his versatility that he produced this seminal paper in a field rather far from his main interests" (Hald, p. 141).<br/><br/> Halley began by referring to John Graunt, who had published <i>Natural and Political Observations upon the Bills of Mortality</i> in 1662, in which he calculated rates of mortality for the City of London. Halley points out that the deductions from these Bills of Mortality were defective since there was 'accession of strangers to the City' which meant that the underlying population was not constant but increasing. <br/><br/> Halley therefore sought sources where the population was stationary, or, in his words, that the number of births and deaths were roughly the same. This appeared to be the case for Breslau (now the Polish city of Wroclaw). Breslau kept detailed records of births, deaths, and the ages of people when they died. In comparison, when Graunt published his work, the ages of deceased people were not recorded in London (and would not be recorded until the 18th century). Caspar Neumann, an important German minister in Breslau, sent some demographic records to Gottfried Leibniz who in turn sent them to the Royal Society in London. Halley analysed Neumann' … [Click Below for Full Description]

Docketed verso: "Sr Tho. Whetstones warrant for £100 out of the privy seals dormant. [indistinct initials follow].". 1 vols. 4to. According to David F. Marley's Pirates of the Americas, Sir Thomas Whetstone (1630/31-1668?) was a nephew of Oliver Cromwell "reduced from a Commonwealth naval Commodore into an impoverished West Indian rover, before dying in Spanish hands." Whetstone is described by ODNB as a naval officer and adventurer and a son of the favorite sister of the protectorate. Through nepotism per the protector's "misplaced patronage" Whetsone quickly rose through the naval ranks. He ascended from a volunteer on Penn's flagship in the 1654 expedition to Hispaniola, was given command of a ship on the return voyage home, and eventually commanded a squadron cruising the waters between Malta and Crete. Whetstone soon became a man of questionable integrity. He flouted orders, sold grain seriously needed to sustain the fleet for his own profit, quarreled with officers and, in general, showed high levels of insolence, incompetence, and dallied onshore, avoiding naval duties.

Blaeu, Joannes:
Amsterdam, 1662. Copper engraving, 39 x 50.5 cms, original hand-colour, Spanish text on verso. Monmouthshire and the Severn Estuary from “the rarest edition of Blaeu's Large Atlases”: only ten of the proposed eleven volumes were completed and issued in a limited quantity between 1658 and the the 1672 fire, which brought work on the final volume to a halt. Blaeu and the rival Golden Age Dutch cartographic publishing house of Janssonius raced to bring out atlases of the British Isles in the 1630s and early 1640s, to add to their expanding world atlases. The work of the two firms represents Dutch map-making of the highest quality at a time when the Low Countries were at the forefront of the international market. Both worked from Elizabethan and Jacobean surveys by Saxton, Speed and others, and based the accompanying text on Camden's Britannia. Distinctive features of English county cartography (such as the enclosures) were retained, as often were the coats of arms of distinguished local historical figures, and the decorative elements give a flavour of the region. Blaeu issued the first editions of his British atlas, with Latin and French text, in 1645 and Dutch text the following year. It was never printed in English. The Blaeu Atlas was eventually extended to the eleven volume Atlas Major, widely considered to be the most magnificent work of its kind ever published, and issued in various editions between 1662 and the disastrous 1672 fire which destroyed most of the firm's copper printing-plates and effectively put them out of business. The Blaeu firm was official cartographe … [Click Below for Full Description]

Single leaf, laid watermarked paper, written recto only, measuring approximately 21 x 14 cm. Creasing, mild foxing, otherwise very good condition, noteworthy for its age and time at sea. Protocol such as this requisition for boarding or disembarking a vessel was common practice at the time. Addressed to Capt.

William Gordon [To:] Capt. Isaac Tully Esq. Saturday, 5 oClock P.M." Captain Miles Cooke was a British Rear-Admiral, involved for several years as Merchant in Trans-Atlantic trade between England and the Province of Maryland, which was then a proprietary colony of the English Lord Baltimore. Cooke's ship was named 'The Maryland Merchant". In 1672 Cooke was discharged from some seafaring business in which Charles Calvert, 3rd Baron Baltimore, was also implicated pending either the verdict of another trial or the state of his vessel. Cooke died four years later in 1676. Resident of Rediffe, Surrey, on 26 February 1661 Captain Miles Cooke married Dorothy Underwood, of Whitechapel, Middlesex.

Joanne Goedartio
Medioburgi [Middleburgh]: Jacobum Fierensium, 1662 An extremely rare early work on the metamorphosis of insects. Jan Goedart originally wrote in Dutch and these 2 volumes are the first published translations of his work. Vol I is hand coloured. Vol I was translated by Johannis de Mey and Vol II by Paul Veezaerdt. A third volume was published after his death. Goedart set up, observed and documented a series of 'experiments' which showed that insects change their appearance - and that the egg, the caterpillar and the butterfly can be the same animal rather than spontaneously appearing. These 2 volumes are in what appears to be contemporary full leather. They are not matching but they have been recently repaired to reback the spine on Vol I and and provide a new spine to Vol II, and they have matching title labels. Vol I is an exceptionally rare hand coloured copy. With title page in red and black inks and with scorpion design; hand coloured decorative title page; preface with decorative initial capital 15pp; Commentary by W Quirinus R 3pp; dedication by Joannis de May with decorative heraldic design 8pp; half title; text and plates 236pp. With 63 plates - occasionally separately numbered images on the same plate. The binding has raised bands and the remains of gilt tooling on the spine and some gilt bordering to the boards. It is sound but with scuffing and wear. Internally the volume is in very good condition. There is a little age browning, the odd spot and nibbled page edge, but the plate colouring is bright, and the text clear and clean. Vol II published by Jacobu … [Click Below for Full Description]

FULLER, Thomas (1608-1661)
London: Printed by J.G.W.L. and W.G. 1662 . First Edition [with the Index also in 1st. edition] Folio, engr. portrait by D. Loggan, + 3 leaves (title, Dedication, To the Reader) + 494 leaves (text) + 6 leaves (Index), light waterstain on title some foxing (occasionally heavy) and browning throughout (as usual), otherwise a very good copy, bound in full antique-style calf, 3-line fillet borders in blind, morocco label on spine. The pagination in this work is exceedingly erratic, and the signatures are not much better. For example sigs. E and K are only 3 leaves, Rr, Ss, and Zzz[z] are not required at all, and many others are 2 leaves instead of 4. A very full collation, both by signature and by pagination, is given by Strickland Gibson with which the present copy has been carefully compared. It is warranted complete. Some copies contain an index which was first printed by Olive Payne in 1737 on 6 leaves [as in the present copy], and reprinted by W. Pickering on 5 leaves c. 1825 "The Worthies is among other things a dictionary of national biography, a series of county histories, a topographical and historical gazetteer, a guide-book, and a dictionary of proverbs..... Fuller was conscientious, according to his light, in trying to check authorities. Besides, he jogged indefatigably about the country to inspect public records, manuscripts, places, and buildings, and to question natives and surviving relatives... The Worthies is a lineal descendant of the mediaeval encyclopedias. Apart from the lists of sheriffs and gentry, we skip at our risk, for Fuller's best goods … [Click Below for Full Description]

John (Joan) and Cornelius Blaeu were the sons of Amsterdam Cartographer, instrument maker, publisher and Bookseller Willem Jans Zoon Blaeu. The brothers collaborated together on several works including the Atlas Major in 1662, which is likely where this map came from. Blaeu was appointed the official cartographer to the Dutch East India Company 1638-1673. This map shows the area from Finland to Siberia and beyond the Jenisej River and south to the Volga River, with Kazan and Novogorod. A partial coastline of Novaya Zemla is visible at the top of the map. The map is filled with mountains and forests with deer, bear and other animals throughout, all hand-coloured in an intricate and expert manner.
