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 "Mechanica" is called one of the most elegant scientific … [Click Below for Full Description]

(Nisbet, in the preface to the 1908 reprint of the 1706-edition).Apart from its pivotal importance to forestry, reforestration, the history of planting in Europe and the direct benefits from that, the book is famously the first book to be printed by the Royal Society … [Click Below for Full Description]

(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).

'The Blaeu Atlas Maior or Cosmographia Blaviana is one of the largest and most splendid of the multi-volume Dutch world atlases. Published in 1662-5, its 594 maps and 3,368 pages of texts collectively presented the state of geographic knowledge of the world in the mid 17th century. Volume VI of the work was devoted to maps of Scotland and Ireland, bringing forward the original mapping of Scotland from the work of Timothy Pont, first published in Blaeu's Atlas novus of 1654, into their final published form.

FORBES, John (publisher).
A.D. McLucas, "Forbes' Cantus, songs and fancies revisited" in: Defining strains: the musical life of Scots in the seventeenth century (), pp. 269-298; ESTC R218639. 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. Binding very slightly rubbed along the extremities. Overall in good condition.

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. Sanson (1600-1667), "Geographe Ordinaire du Roi" to Louis XIII, is considered the founder of French car … [Click Below for Full Description]

CORNEILLE, Pierre
Augustin Courbé et Guillaume de Luyne, Rouen et Paris. Plein maroquin janséniste rouge (reliure du dix-neuvième siècle signé Chambolle-Duru) Un volume in-12 (144x83 mm), (12)-82 pages Édition originale. La pièce a été représentée la première fois au Théâtre du Marais de Paris le 25 février 1662. « Rome n'est plus dans Rome, elle est toute où je suis. » Ainsi parle Sertorius dans la tragédie de Corneille. 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]

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]

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.

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]

ARNAULD, Antoine & Pierre NICOLE [Blaise PASCAL].
Paris: Jean Guignart, Charles Savreux & Jean de Lavnay, 1662. First edition, rare in commerce, of the famous 'Port-Royal Logic', "the most influential logic text from Aristotle to the end of the nineteenth century" (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy). It is also of fundamental importance in the history of probability, as it contains the earliest printed account of work by Pascal on the subject. Indeed, "it is the first occasion on which 'probability' is actually used in what is identifiably our modern sense, susceptible of numerical measurement" (Hacking, p. 25). "The authors were Antoine Arnauld and Pierre Nicole, philosophers and theologians associated with the Port-Royal Abbey, a center of the heretical Catholic Jansenist movement in seventeenth-century France. The first edition appeared in 1662; during the authors' lifetimes four major revisions were published, the last and most important in 1683. The 1981 critical edition by Pierre Clair and François Girbal lists 63 French editions and 10 English editions (the 1818 English edition served as a text at the Universities of Cambridge and Oxford). The work treats topics in logic, grammar, philosophy of language, theory of knowledge, and metaphysics" (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy). "After his conversion in November 1654, Pascal for a time retreated to the religious community at Port Royal where he worked together with the theologians Pierre Nicole and Antoine Arnauld for the Jansenist cause. For use in the upper classes of the school attached to the community, Nicole and Arnauld wrote La logique ou l'art de penser ( … [Click Below for Full Description]

London by J.F. for R. Royston, 1662. 4to., (2) + 30 + (2)pp., (A1-B1-E4)*, title a little dusty and with two or three small edge-nicks (not touching printed surface), preserved unbound in old(original?) wrappers, now repaired, the single word 'Trade' written boldly in an early hand across upper wrapper. First and only edition. *Our copy collates exactly as the one listed by Westwood & Satchell but, nonetheless does lack the 4 preliminary leaves following the title-page which reprint the text of the Proclamation on Fishing> of 22 August 1661. The author puts the fishing industry into its world context and suggests that it is relatively risk-free when compared with the trade with the West Indies. He focuses on the Dutch ('Hollanders'), whose ubiquitous fishermen have a vast fleet, far outnumbering the English, which can be found everywhere from Newfoundland to the Mediterranean and from the Thames to the Russian coast. Their sales distribution was comprehensive, flooding the whole of Europe with Dutch fish. Like other writers before him, the author gives a blow-by-blow account of Dutch fishing operations, their boats, how provisioned and how the fleets are serviced at sea, the costs including wages, and a complete picture of an efficient, profitable and world-class industry. The concluding three pages or so contain the author's proposals 'for the better inhabiting of the Island of Lewis' suggesting that Charles II was minded to retract the recent permission given to the Dutch to establish their own fishing operations there.
