SANSON D'ABBELVILLE, Nicolas
Paris: chez l'Autheur, 1662. SECOND EDITION. Complete with 15 double-page engraved maps hand-colored in outline. Contemporary mottled calf, small repair on corners; an excellent copy with only an occasional toning on a few text leaves. Although deemed a second edition, this is actually a reissue of the first with a different title page. The maps of the American continent include: North America, New Canada, or New France, Florida, Mexico, Guadalajara, New Mexico, California, Audience of Guatimala, the Isles Antilles, & Les Lucayes et Les Caribes, South America, Terre Ferme Roy de Grenade, Guiane, Guiane et Caribane, Peru and the course of the Amazon, Chile, Brazil (whose coast is possessed by the Portuguese), Paraguay, Detroit de Magellan, Terre et Isles Magellanicques. Each map indicates that Sanson created it but bears the address of Pierre Mariete. The explanatory commentary contains information describing the country, customs, and more. Just prior to publication of this series of works (which also included atlases of Europe and Africa), Sanson formed a partnership with Pierre Mariette, an engraver and printseller. Pursuant to their contract, Sanson drew the maps and Mariette engraved and printed them. Each maintained possession of half of the plates, and they were allowed to exchange and/or buy from one another. Some bore the address of Sanson, others Mariette. But Sanson allowed Mariette to store his plates, and Mariette without prior agreement started placing his address on Sanson's plates. In time, a lawsuit which had been prosecuted was settled when both di … [Click Below for Full Description]

Lugduni Batavorum (Leyden), Apud Petrum Leffen & Franciscum Moyardum, 1662. 4to. Contemporary full calf with gilt title-laebl to spine. (36), 121, (1) pp. + 10 plates. Complete with all 56 woodcut and engraved text-illustrations (many of which are full-page) and the 10 full-page engraved plates (several folded), one of which is the heart-plate with the 6 moveable parts, the Cardiac-flaps (of which only the smallest is missing). One folded plate cropped at fore-margin. ¶ First edition of Descartes' seminal treatise on man, the first European textbook of physiology, constituting an epochal work of modern thought, defining the mechanism of man as it does. "In the Treatise of man, Descartes did not describe man, but a kind of conceptual models of man, namely creatures, created by God, which consist of two ingredients, a body and a soul. "These men will be composed, as we are, of a soul and a body. First I must describe the body on its own; then the soul, again on its own; and finally I must show how these two natures would have to be joined and united in order to constitute men who resemble us"." (SEP). This highly influential work was the first to present a coherent description of bodily responses in neurophysiological terms that are still, to a wide extent, accepted today. In his attempt to solve the central question around which almost all philosophical thought had revolved since the time of Aristotle, what the relation between the soul and the body actually is, Descartes came to create a milestone work of physiology which changed the entire trajectory of modern physiologica … [Click Below for Full Description]

[INCLUYE la copia de los referidos Capítulos de Paz:] Articulos de Paz entre su Mgd Carlos segundo Rey de la Gran Bretaña, Escocia y Irlanda El y la Ciudad y Reyno de Argel concluido por Don Thomas Allen Gen[era]l de la escuadra de la dicha Mgd en la mar mediterranea segun las instruciones que recivio de su Alteza el señor Duque de Yorc y Albani Cap[it]an Gen[era]l de Ynglaterra y Irlanda condestable del castillo de Dubrel Patron de los cinco puestos y Gobernador de Postmu y con los mismos Articulos concluidos por D. Iuº Lauson en 23 de Abril de 1662 y despues mas solemnemente confirmados en 10 de Noviembre del dicho año y fueron ratificados por el gran Señor [Siguen catorce Artículos, numerados del 1 al 14, sobre los privilegios de que gozarán los ingleses en las aguas y reino de Argel así como los que tendrá el Bajá Juan y González y sus súbditos. A continuación aparecen otros tres Artículos titulados "Articulos añadidos" y numerados del 1 al 3. Desafortunadamente la copia de la carta del Duque de Alcalá que acompaña a estos Capítulos de Paz, a la que hace referencia la reina Mariana ante el Consejo de Guerra, no se acompaña]
1662. En Madrid a 3 de Abril de 1669.- 6 hojas; In Folio (30 x 21 cm).- Al folio seis le falta todo un ángulo que afortumadamente coincide con la parte del mismo que está en blanco sin texto.- Es un documento muy interesante en el que aparecen artículo por artículo todos los detalles de este tratado de paz entre los ingleses y argelinos del siglo XVII, cuando los primeros estaban hostigando con su armada a la flota española y a todas las plazas que España poseía en el Mediterraneo africano y peninsular, incluído y sobre todo Gibraltar. Esto les daba mucha maniobra para poner en riesgo todas las posesiones españolas por los privilegios que adquirían en aguas mediterráneas, lo que disparó las alertas de la reina regente que intentó, a través de su Consejo de Guerra, poner todo el remedio posible para refuerzo y defensa de las posesiones españolas en esta zona. A modo de ejemplo transcribimos parcialmente los tres primeros artículos. Artículo 1: "Que de oy en adelante y para siempre jamas ayga buena y firme Paz entre SMgd de la Gran Bretaña y el Baxa Juan y Gon[zal]ez de Argel y los Dominios pertenecientes y que las naos y subditos de cada parte no se haran ofensa ni injuria entre unos ni otros tratandose con todo el respeto y amistad posible y que puedan las naos de dicho Rey de la Gran Bretaña o de alguno de sus subditos entrar libremente en el puerto de Argel y comerciar como en otros tiempos...".

BLAEU, Johannes.
Johannes Blaeu, 1662]. The first printed map to depict Manhattan as an island. Double-page engraved map, with contemporary hand-colour in part and in outline, Latin text on verso. Blaeu's important map of New England, based on Adriean Block's manuscript map of 1614, first published in 1635 in Blaeu's 'Theatrum Orbis Terrarum', 1635. This example was issued in the first edition of the 'Atlas Maior' of 1662. The map covers the east coast of North America from Virginia to Quebec, showing New York and Long Island down past Cape Cod. Block (1567 – 1627), a fur trader and navigator, explored the coastal area and river valleys between Cape Cod and Manhattan, resulting in some of the most important advancements in the mapping of the east coast at the time. Block's map was the first to delineate Manhattan as an island, and also the first to name "Manhates" and "Niev Nederlandt". Blaeu's map is significant as the first printed map to show these discoveries, and also as the first to be embellished with depictions of otters, beavers and polecats. The map also includes scenes of Indian natives paddling their canoes to the shore. Burden discusses the map in depth in his 'The Mapping of North America': "It has been noted that the time difference between 1614, the date of the manuscript, and Blaeu's map whose first appearance is in 1635, appears long for such an important advance. It would seem highly feasible that Blaeu, who published many separately issued maps, would have wanted to produce one like this sooner. However, evidence points to the fact that it could not have been made before … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

Contemporary mottled calf, small repair on corners; an excellent copy with only an occasional toning on a few text leaves.

The maps of the American continent include: North America, New Canada, or New France, Florida, Mexico, Guadalajara, New Mexico, California, Audience of Guatimala, the Isles Antilles, & Les Lucayes et Les Caribes, South America, Terre Ferme Roy de Grenade, Guiane, Guiane et Caribane, Peru and the course of the Amazon, Chile, Brazil (whose coast is possessed by the Portuguese), Paraguay, Detroit de Magellan, Terre et Isles Magellanicques. Each map indicates that Sanson created it but bears the address of Pierre Mariete. The explanatory commentary contains information describing the country, customs, and more. Just prior to publication of this series of works (which also included atlases of Europe and Africa), Sanson formed a partnership with Pierre Mariette, an engraver and printseller. Pursuant to their contract, Sanson drew the maps and Mariette engraved and printed them. Each maintained possession of half of the plates, and they were allowed to exchange and/or buy from one another. Some bore the address of Sanson, others Mariette. But Sanson allowed Mariette to store his plates, and Mariette without prior agreement started placing his address on Sanson's plates.

There is text in Latin to all the plates except 4. ¶ First printing of the magnificent Hven-Brahe section of Blaeu's Atlas Major, considered "the greatest and finest atlas ever published".Tycho Brahe educated Joan Blaeu's father Willem Blaeu, who visited Brahe's Island Hven for a period of six months in 1595, learning, among other things, triangulation; - the map here of Hven became the first triangulated map and is furthermore probably Blaeu's first map. He devoted a part of volume one of his fine atlas to Tycho Brahe, and this magnificent part constitutes the engravings depicting Tycho Brahe's Island Hven, his buildings, castles and astronomical instruments.Blaeu shows his devotion to and appreciation for his master in his referral to Tycho Brahe as his "preceptor" in legend on his celestial globes. The beautiful depictions of Brahe's astronomical instruments are copied by Blaeu from Brahe's "Astronomia instaurata Mechanica" and put into a larger scale here.

The work shaped both the knowledge and the landscape of an entire nation throughout centuries."There can be no doubt that John Evelyn, both during his own lifetime and throughout the two centuries which have elapsed since his death in 1706, has exerted more individual influence, through his charming "Sylva", ... than can be ascribed to any other individual."

(AUTOGRAFI)- LOUIS XIV
Lettera originale su 4 facciate (27 x 20), in nitida scrittura corsiva, firmata "Louis", "escript a Paris le XIIe jour d'octobre 1662". Traccia delle antiche piegature e qualche macchia gialla, ma buon esemplare. (7810) Lettera importante, indirizzata da Luigi XIV al "Cardinal Decano", in merito agli incidenti provocati il 20 agosto 1662 dalla intemperanza della Guardia Corsa, al servizio del Pontefice Alessandro VII, nei pressi del Palazzo Farnese, in cui vennero coinvolti membri del personale dell'Ambasciata di Francia in Roma. Tali incidenti, che ebbero lunghi strascichi fino all'autunno inoltrato, con scambi di accuse e scarichi di responsabilità delle parti chiamate in causa, si svolsero in un momento assai delicato in cui la Santa Sede cercava di coalizzare una nuova Lega Cattolica contro il Turco, e la Corona di Francia aizzava percontro la Sublime Porta a muovere guerra all'Austria. Riassumendo i fatti: il duca di Créqui, entrato in Roma l'11 giugno 1662 con un seguito di 200 armati, pretendeva con una certa tracotanza una sorta di franchigia diplomatica estesa anche ai contorni del Palazzo Farnese. Il 20 agosto, essendo venuti a diverbio per bravate e futili motivi nei paraggi del palazzo alcuni Corsi con 3 francesi, ne nacquero scambi di archibugiate, una delle quali colpì pure la carrozza diplomatica su cui viaggiava l'ambasciatrice, provocando la morte di "un Lacché di quella Nazione". Gli scontri proseguirono con reciproche vendette nei giorni successivi, in cui si assistette pure ad una sorta di "caccia al francese", che coinvolse perfino un piemontese preso p … [Click Below for Full Description]

BOYLE, Robert.
Oxford: Printed by H. Hall...for Tho. Robinson. Second edition but the first announcement of Boyle's law, relating to the inverse proportion of the volume and pressure of a gas, which was Boyle's most important achievement in physics and one of the greatest contributions to physical science. Not only does Boyle here enunciate a fundamental law, but he supports it with the evidence of verifiable experiments. It exemplifies perfectly the methodology of what is now known as the experimental method of science: hypothesis tested by experimental proof, which Boyle was among the first to adopt. To this second edition Boyle added a defence of his views against attacks by Hobbes and Franciscus Linus, among others. "This second edition (here cited) is particularly important for what Boyle called an 'hypothesis' but what we know as 'Boyle's Law': that the volume of air in a confined space varies inversely as the pressure. He demonstrated this by much experimental detail: with experiments on rarefaction performed by others, including Hooke, and on compression performed by himself" (PMM).

Cet atlas fait partie de la série des quatre continents de Nicolas Sanson (Europe, Afrique, Asie, Amérique), publiés séparément entre 1647 et 1657. Chaque carte est accompagnée de sa description géographique puisée chez les auteurs anciens (Pline, Strabon), dans les récits des voyageurs (Linschoten, Purchas, J. de Laet) et dans les rapports des missionnaires jésuites. Premier de cette célèbre famille de cartographes, Nicolas Sanson (Abbeville, 1600 - Paris, 1667), dit Sanson d'Abbeville, étudia au collège des Jésuites d'Amiens. Initié à la géographie par son père, il publia, en 1627, une carte des Gaules qui attira l'attention du cardinal de Richelieu. Celui-ci le fit nommer géographe du roi, avec la charge d'ingénieur en Picardie. Par la suite, Louis XIII lui remit le brevet de conseiller d'État. Reconnu comme le fondateur de la cartographie française, Sanson est l'auteur de près de 300 cartes.

Enlarged and corrected third edition, one of two issues, of the earliest printed secular Scottish songbook, published by John Forbes, book and music printer at Aberdeen. "As the sole publication of secular music in Scotland during the entire sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, the three editions (1662, 16666 and 1682) of Cantus, Songs and Fancies by the Aberdeen printers John Forbes and son are of historical significance. ... the three editions present the 'cantus' voice of sixty-four songs, about a third of them unique to Scotland and nine found so far only in Songs and Fancies" (McLucas). Added to the present third edition are six "balletti" after Giovanni Giacomo Gastoldi (b.1555), and some popular English songs by Henry Lewis and Dr. Wilson. With the bookplate of the English musician, organist and tenor William Hayman Cummings on paste-down, and the bookplate of the Swiss pianist Alfred Cortot on first flyleaf. Lacking the woodcut frontispiece, replaced by the frontispiece from the 1879 facsimile edition. Title-page and the following pages somewhat stained, occasionally a small spot, stain, or wormhole.

The maps are all dated 1652 with (only one dated 1653) and do not include the address of Mariette. The atlas features maps of India, Persia, China, Japan, the Maldives, Arabia and the Philippines, among others. Just prior to publication of this series of works (which also included atlases of Europe and Africa), Sanson formed a partnership with Pierre Mariette, an engraver and printseller. Pursuant to their contract, Sanson drew the maps and Mariette engraved and printed them. Each maintained possession of half of the plates, and they were allowed to exchange and/or buy from one another. Some bore the address of Sanson, others Mariette. But Sanson allowed Mariette to store his plates, and Mariette without prior agreement started placing his address on Sanson's plates. In time, a lawsuit which had been prosecuted was settled when both died and their respective sons took over the business. This atlas is a fine examples of French mapping by the foremost French cartographer of the seventeenth century.

Sertorius est en effet le seul homme politique de la République romaine qui ait fait sécession entre ~ 83 et ~ 72. Connu pour son courage, il sert Marius contre les Teutons en ~ 102, devient tribun militaire en Espagne en ~ 97, et perd, en tant que questeur, un œil au cours d'une bataille en ~ 91. Ayant pris le parti de Marius contre Sylla, il est nommé en ~ 83 gouverneur des Espagnes. Son absence de xénophobie, son sens de la justice lui attirent la reconnaissance des peuples de l'Ibérie. Il doit fuir un moment devant les armées envoyées par Sylla et il s'installe provisoirement à Tanger où il enrôle des Maures dans son armée mi-romaine, mi-indigène. Il ne veut pas rester, comme le dit Jérôme Carcopino, dans l'exil doré d'une sorte d'île d'Elbe, et il entreprend la reconquête de l'Espagne sur Rome, avec le concours des populations autochtones, des pirates et des transfuges romains proscrits par Sylla. Très populaire, toujours suivi d'une biche blanche apprivoisée, ce qui le teinte de divinité, Sertorius, de rebelle devient usurpateur. Il crée en Espagne un État romain, avec un Sénat. Il allège les impôts, se montre conciliant et diplomate avec ses sujets, et il fait régner … [Click Below for Full Description]

DOCUMENTO MANUSCRITO. SIGLO XVII. SOBRE EL USO DE SALUDOS DE ARMADA Y GALERAS. SEÑAL REAL DE FELIPE IV
Sin editorial 0. Soft cover En Madrid, a 29 de Noviembre de 1662.- 6 hojas; In Folio (30 x 21 cm).- El contenido del documento narra los diversos procedimientos o diferencia de protocolos que se dan en saludos entre naves cuando se producen encuentros, tal y como le "sucedió a Juanetin Doria saliendo al socorro de Orán con treze galeras y llegó la Almiranta de Francia a la boca del puerto enviando recados al Vicealmirante, cumplió con las ceremonias de cortesía acostumbradas y, aunque se lo reconoció y mostró agradecimiento dellas, no saludó a Juanetín pasando junto a él, que hubiera sido fácil obligarle a hazer lo que debía con treze galeras y no se atrevió por excusar al rey rompimientos y quexas... También para dar forma al confuso estilo que se sigue en las Esquadras y Galeras de Italia, puertos y plazas maritimas del dominio de Genoveses y formalidad de las salvas de mar y tierra..." Sigue el documento hablando de las instrucciones que se dieron a Don Juan [José de Austria] "quando salio a servir el cargo de la mar, al Sr. Principe Philiberto a Juan Carlos y todos los demas..." Sigue hablando de cómo se saludan todas las Galeras en Barcelona, Gerona, Çaller, Zerdeña, Mallorca, Napoles, Me[s]cina y Palermo y lo que pretenden algunas que han mudado en los últimos años, las de Puertofin y Puerto Venere, las de Sevilla, Ciutavieja. "Cartagena, Málaga ni saludavan ni se les saludava a ellas y ahora si saludan a las capitanas de VM. Que en los puertos de Francia qualquier parte que lleguen se saluda con la Capitana que manda y ellos responden con lo que quieren. Cuando Mó … [Click Below for Full Description]

SANSON D'ABBELVILLE, Nicolas
Paris: chez l'Autheur, 1662. SECOND EDITION. Complete with 15 double-page engraved maps hand-colored in outline. Contemporary mottled calf, small repair on corners; an excellent copy with only an occasional toning on a few text leaves. Although deemed a second edition, this is actually a reissue of the first with a different title page. The maps of the American continent include: North America, New Canada, or New France, Florida, Mexico, Guadalajara, New Mexico, California, Audience of Guatimala, the Isles Antilles, & Les Lucayes et Les Caribes, South America, Terre Ferme Roy de Grenade, Guiane, Guiane et Caribane, Peru and the course of the Amazon, Chile, Brazil (whose coast is possessed by the Portuguese), Paraguay, Detroit de Magellan, Terre et Isles Magellanicques. Each map indicates that Sanson created it but bears the address of Pierre Mariete. The explanatory commentary contains information describing the country, customs, and more. Just prior to publication of this series of works (which also included atlases of Europe and Africa), Sanson formed a partnership with Pierre Mariette, an engraver and printseller. Pursuant to their contract, Sanson drew the maps and Mariette engraved and printed them. Each maintained possession of half of the plates, and they were allowed to exchange and/or buy from one another. Some bore the address of Sanson, others Mariette. But Sanson allowed Mariette to store his plates, and Mariette without prior agreement started placing his address on Sanson's plates. In time, a lawsuit which had been prosecuted was settled when both di … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Gravius, Daniel (ed.)].
4to (160 x 205 cm). (6), 144, (2) ff. With integral, engraved frontispiece (with the title on a cloth surrounded by 7 small religious scenes, a cartouche with Hartogh's springing hart device below, flanked by 2 cartouches, with the seal of the VOC left and the arms of Batavia right), letterpress title-page with a woodcut emblematic device (a rose with 3 bees and a spider), a woodcut factotum and 2 woodcut decorated initials (1 series). With the Sirayan text in roman with italic and the Dutch text in textura with roman. Early 18th century vellum, sewn on 4 vellum tapes, laced through the joints, blue sprinkled edges, manuscript spine title. Very rare first (and only early) edition of one of the earliest, best and most extensive sources for the East Formosan Siraya language (a member of the Austronesian family), now largely extinct. It appears here in the form of a bilingual (Siraya and Dutch) catechism, with the Siraya transcribed in the Latin alphabet. Although the title-page names no author, translator, or compiler, the dedication is signed by the Dutch Reformed missionary Daniel Gravius (van de Graaf, 1616-78), who lived in Formosa from 1647 to 1651. He had published a much shorter Sirayan edition of the Gospel of Saint Matthew in 1661, but the present catechism appears to be the first major published work in the language. Simon van Breen and Johannes Happart had produced a first draft of the present catechism in manuscript in the 1640s, and Gravius acknowledges their pioneering efforts and those of the Formosan missionary Robert Junius (1606-55), who published a Formosan … [Click Below for Full Description]
