      Amsterdam 1663 - Esemplare tratto dal primo volume del "Nouveau Theatre de l'Italie" pubblicato ad Amsterdam nel 1704/5 e nel 1724, quale integrazione al progetto di Johannes Baleu, iniziato nel 1663, del grande "libro delle città", manchevole delle piante di gran parte della parte settentrionale della penisola. Il Blaeu, durante la sua lunga attività editoriale pubblica tre volumi sulle città italiane. Nel 1663 i primi tre, suddivisi in Stato della Chiesa, Roma e Regno di Napoli e Sicilia. Alla sua morte i suoi eredi danno alla luce altri due volumi datati 1682 incentrati sulle città del Piemonte e della Savoia, poi ristampati da altri editori nel 1693 e 1697. Il francese Pierre Mortier pubblica una ristampa nel 1704/5, intitolata "Nouveau Theatre de l’Italie". L’opera è in quattro volumi e comprende le lastre del Blaeu, ritoccate e modificate in piccola parte, integrate dall’aggiunta di numerose nuove mappe di proprio disegno, raffiguranti le città della parte settentrionale della penisola, racchiuse nel primo volume dell’opera. L’atlante del Mortier venne pubblicato con testo latino, francese ed olandese. La particolarità che differenzia le due edizioni di Blaeu e Mortier è rappresentata dal fatto che il testo non è al verso della singola mappa (che quindi è bianca nel retro), ma si trova all’inizio di ogni singolo volume. Il grande successo dell’opera diede origine ad un’ulteriore ristampa, praticamente identica, curata da R. Alberts ed edita nel 1724/5. Incisione in rame, in buono stato di conservazione.

        Polygraphia nova et universalis ex combinatoria arte detecta qua quivis etiam linguarum quantumuis imperitus triplici methodo. . . Appendix apologetica.

      Rome: ex typographia Varesij, 1663. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. Folio (330 x 235 mm). 148, 23 [1] pp., including woodcut with motto of Kircher on title page, woodcut initials, one engraved folding plate and two letterpress folding tables. Bound in early 19th century quarter calf over marbled boards, spine lettered in gilt and with gilt ornaments (boards and extremities little rubbed, corners scuffed, little worming to hinges). Internally very little browning, occasional minor spotting, faint dampstaining to blank fore-margin, a few paper flaws, p.13 with ink smudge to blank fore-margin, otherwise quite crisp and clean. A fine, untouched copy with ample margins. ----VERY RARE FIRST EDITION. In this work, which greatly influenced Leibniz, Kircher presents an artificial universal language, reworking the work of Trithemius with the same title. The first book proposes the reduction of all languages to only one, and contains a double dictionary of five languages; books II and III are devoted to various encryption systems. Trithemius' work Polygraphia is discussed in the appendix.Kircher's "work Polygraphia nova provides elements for a carefully crafted codification apparatus that itself is telling of the culture of 'secret monastic languages and codes of mediaeval Europe." (Parikka). "This work of the German scholar and mathematician is based principally on the writings of Johannes Trithemius. Joaquín García Carmona and others see also the influence of Blaise de Vigenère, whose multi-alphabet cipher seems to have been transformed by Kircher into a numerical cipher. Of special interest in Polygraphia is part 1, where Kircher proposes a system of pasigraphy, or universal writing, employing numerals to stand for words of similar meaning in Latin, Italian, French, German, and Spanish." (Semeiology Collection). This work is exceptionally rare, with only two copies recorded at auction in the past 30+ years (the Macclesfield copy in 2005 and a presentation-copy by Kircher in 1991, both sold at Sotheby's). Dünnhaupt/Kircher 15; Sommervogel IV, 1059; Jussi Parikka, Hidden in Plain Sight: The Steganographic Image.

        S. Rom. Imperii Circuli et Electoratus Bavariae Tabula Chorographica . . . 1663

      Augsburg 1663 - Bell'esempio della versione realizzata da G. B. Flinckh, della celeberrima mappa di Baviera di Apian, del 1563. La mappa della Baviera di Apian è considerata un monumento pionieristico della cartografia moderna. Nel 1554, il duca Alberto di Baviera commissiona a Philip Apian (figlio del famoso matematico e cosmografo Pietro Apian) la realizzazione di una mappa geografica di Baviera per la Bairische Chronik di Johannes Aventinus scritta tra il 1526 e il 1533 Per i successivi 7 anni, Apian viaggiò attraverso l’Alta e Bassa Baviera, effettuando un rilievo del paesaggio basato sui metodi della trigonometria e triangolazione, creando così la prima mappa di un intero Paese con questo sistema. Trascorse poi i due anni successivi per realizzare il suo capolavoro, pubblicato nel 1563: una mappa di dimensioni 5 x 5 metri. in scala 1: 45.000, che è stato poi colorato da Bartel Refinger. Philip Apian (1531-1589) è stato successore di suo padre Pietro alla cattedra di matematica presso l'Università di Ingolstadt e il primo cartografo a produrre una mappa dell’intera Baviera. Una versione più piccola del territorio dell’intera Baviera, basata sulla carta Apian 1563, fu redatta nel 1568 Le mappe successive di Baviera erano di solito versioni diverse dell’opera di Apian, modificate nelle iscrizioni e/o negli elementi decorativi, di volta in volta aggiornati. La mappa era così precisa che non sono stati effettuati ulteriori rilievi del territorio fino agli inizi del XIX secolo. Inoltre, l’autore riporta anche anche il luogo dove suo fratello morì, dopo essere caduto da cavallo, indicato da una croce vicino alla città di Ainhaus. La mappa mostra una grande vignetta con un ritratto di Massimiliano I "Il Grande", l'Elettore di Baviera (regnò, 1597-1651), considerato uno dei migliori sovrani del Paese. Lo stemma di Baviera, affiancato da leoni, occupa l'angolo in alto a destra della mappa, sopra la veduta di Monaco, mentre la parte inferiore della mappa è decorata da putti con un strumenti di rilevamento. Fine example of G.P. Finckh's version of Philip Apian's 1568 map, the first printed map of Bavaria, Engraved by Ainling. Apian's map of Bavaria is considered to be a pioneering monument of modern cartography. In 1554, Duke Albrecht of Bavaria ordered Philip Apian (son of the famous mathematician and cosmographer Peter Apian) to create a map of Bavaria for the Bairische Chronik of Johannes Aventinus written 1526 to 1533. For the next 7 years, Apian travelled through Oberbayern and Niederbayern, Oberpfalz, Archbishopric Salzburg and Bishopric Eichstätt, conducting survey of the landscape based on methods of trigonometry and triangulation, creating the first map of an entire country by this method. He then spent the next two years creating his masterwork, a 5 x 5 meter sized map in scale 1:45.000, which was later colored by Bartel Refinger. Philip Apian (1531-1589) was successor to his father Peter as the professor of mathematics at Ingolstadt University and the first cartographer to produce a complete map of Bavaria. The map remained in the same Library, until it was destroyed by a fire in 1782. A smaller Bairische Landtafeln, based on the 1563 Apian map, was prepared in 1568. The map was so precise that Bavaria did not conduct any other large scale land survey until the early 19th century. Later maps of Bavaria were usually merely updated versions of Apian's map with more elaborate writing or decorative frames. The map is so detailed that even the spot where his brother died, after falling from his horse, is recorded. It is marked by a cross near the town of Ainhaus. The map features a large vignette with a portrait of Maximilian I "The Great", the Elector of Bavaria (reigned, 1597-1651), widely considred to be the country's finest ruler. The arms of Bavaira, which are flanked by lions, occupy the upper-right corner of the map, above a view of Munich, while a view near the bottom of the map shows putti with an assortment of surveying equipment.

        Engraved Portrait by "Hobbedeboody".

      1663 - Adams, Jack (1625-?). Magnifico smokentissimo custardissimo astrologissimo cunningmanissimo rabbinissimo viro Iacko Adams de Clarkenwell Greeno hanc lovelissiman sui picturam. Engraved portrait. N.p., n.d. (1663 or later). Mounted. 130 x 76 mm. (engraving); 146 x 93 mm. (mount). Very good. Comic portrait of British astrologer Jack Adams, the "Cunning Man of Clerkenwell Green," captioned in dog-Latin and signed "Hobbedeboody pinxit et scratchabat." John Timbs, who reproduced this engraving in his English Eccentrics and Eccentricities (1875), gave the following brief biography of Adams:"Among the celebrities of Clerkenwell Green was Jack Adams, whose nativity was calculated by Partridge, who affirmed that he was born on the 3rd of December, 1625, and that he was so great a natural, or simpleton, as to be obliged to wear long coats, besides other marks of stupidity. . . . "Jack Adams was a conjurer and professor of the celestial sciences; he was (says Granger's Supplement) 'a blind buzzard, who pretended to have the eyes of an eagle. He was chiefly employed in horary questions, relative to love and marriage, and knew, upon proper occasions, how to soothe and flatter the expectations of those who consulted him, as a man might have much better fortune from him for five guineas than for the same number of shillings . . . He assumed the character of a learned and cunning man; but was no otherwise cunning than as he knew how to overreach those credulous mortals who were as willing to be cheated as he was to cheat them, and who relied implicitly upon his art.' . . . "In an old print we have Jack Adams in a fantastic dress, with a tobacco-pipe in his girdle, standing at a table on which lies a horn-book and Poor Robin's Almanack. On one shelf is a row of books, and on another several boys' playthings, particularly tops, marbles, and a small drum. Before him is a man genteelly dressed, presenting five pieces; from his mouth proceeds a label, inscribed, 'Is she a princess?' This is meant for Carleton, who married the pretended German princess. Behind him is a ragged, slatternly woman, who also has a label in her mouth, with these words: 'Sir, can you tell my fortune?'" (Timbs, pp. 131-132)."The pretended German princess" refers to British criminal Mary Carleton, who assumed false identities in order to marry and defraud a number of men. She first came to public notice in 1663 when she was arrested and tried for impersonating a German princess in order to marry John Carleton, the brother-in-law of a tavern owner.

        Engraved Portrait by "Hobbedeboody".

      1663. Adams, Jack (1625-?). Magnifico smokentissimo custardissimo astrologissimo cunningmanissimo rabbinissimo viro Iacko Adams de Clarkenwell Greeno hanc lovelissiman sui picturam. Engraved portrait. N.p., n.d. (1663 or later). Mounted. 130 x 76 mm. (engraving); 146 x 93 mm. (mount). Very good. Comic portrait of British astrologer Jack Adams, the "Cunning Man of Clerkenwell Green," captioned in dog-Latin and signed "Hobbedeboody pinxit et scratchabat." John Timbs, who reproduced this engraving in his English Eccentrics and Eccentricities (1875), gave the following brief biography of Adams:"Among the celebrities of Clerkenwell Green was Jack Adams, whose nativity was calculated by Partridge, who affirmed that he was born on the 3rd of December, 1625, and that he was so great a natural, or simpleton, as to be obliged to wear long coats, besides other marks of stupidity. . . . "Jack Adams was a conjurer and professor of the celestial sciences; he was (says Granger's Supplement) 'a blind buzzard, who pretended to have the eyes of an eagle. He was chiefly employed in horary questions, relative to love and marriage, and knew, upon proper occasions, how to soothe and flatter the expectations of those who consulted him, as a man might have much better fortune from him for five guineas than for the same number of shillings . . . He assumed the character of a learned and cunning man; but was no otherwise cunning than as he knew how to overreach those credulous mortals who were as willing to be cheated as he was to cheat them, and who relied implicitly upon his art.' . . . "In an old print we have Jack Adams in a fantastic dress, with a tobacco-pipe in his girdle, standing at a table on which lies a horn-book and Poor Robin's Almanack. On one shelf is a row of books, and on another several boys' playthings, particularly tops, marbles, and a small drum. Before him is a man genteelly dressed, presenting five pieces; from his mouth proceeds a label, inscribed, 'Is she a princess?' This is meant for Carleton, who married the pretended German princess. Behind him is a ragged, slatternly woman, who also has a label in her mouth, with these words: 'Sir, can you tell my fortune?'" (Timbs, pp. 131-132)."The pretended German princess" refers to British criminal Mary Carleton, who assumed false identities in order to marry and defraud a number of men. She first came to public notice in 1663 when she was arrested and tried for impersonating a German princess in order to marry John Carleton, the brother-in-law of a tavern owner.

        COMOEDIAE SEX ANGLO-LATINAE. SIX COMEDIES . . . IN ENGLISH AND LATINE

      London: Printed for the Company of Stationers, 1663. This is a charming diglot edition of Terence's comedies geared toward young audiences, seen here in a convincing retrospective binding. Flourishing in the second century B.C., Terence has given us six extant plays, the ancestors of drawing room and modern situation comedies featuring crusty fathers, rebellious sons, and impudent slaves whose machinations solve the playwright's intricate complications of plot. The plays were popular throughout the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, and still retain their appeal. Charles Hoole (1610-67) is responsible for this translation; as a cleric and educator he published several books of Latin grammar and translations specifically "For the use of young Scholars," including the present work. This book was undoubtedly used by at least two young scholars, whose loopy, unpracticed hands have each certified it as "his book." Given this ownership, our copy is remarkably well preserved and all the more desirable for its replica binding by Philip Dusel. Dusel's modern interpretations of classic binding styles impress with their fidelity, and they often innocently deceive all but the most sophisticated collector. When Bernard Middleton, the dean of British book conservators, saw examples of Dusel's work in California, he is reported to have said he was going to go away and shoot himself. Dusel's bindings are not signed, but this is certainly his work (the volume was formerly in the inventory of the dealer who is one of the binder's chief clients).. 157 x 97 mm. (6 1/4 x 3 3/4"). 2 p.l., 247, [1], 241-501, [1] pp.Translated by Charles Hoole. Fine retrospective tobacco-brown morocco, elaborately gilt, by Philip Dusel, covers with floral frame and oblique thistle ornaments at corners, raised bands, spine intricately gilt in compartments with rosette at center and scrolling cornerpieces, gilt titling. Text in English and Latin on facing pages. Verso of title with early ownership inscriptions in schoolboy hands. Title page and A1 with neat repairs, title somewhat soiled, leaves a bit browned, occasional minor stains, but the text in very good shape for a school text, and the recent period-style binding bright and unworn.

        Traitez de l'équilibre des liqueurs, et de la pesanteur de la masse de l'air. Contenant l'explication des causes de divers effets de la nature qui n'avoient point esté bien connus jusques ici

      Paris, Guillaume Desprez, 1663. 1663, 1663, in-12, (22), 232, (8) pages et 2 planches repliées, plein veau granité de l'époque, dos à nerfs orné, Première édition, parue posthume, publiée par son neveu Etienne Périer et le physicien Rohault. "Pascal consigna ses premiers résultats [sur l'étude du vide] dans un petit livre publié en 1647, "Expériences nouvelles touchant le vide". Enfin d'assoir ses démonstrations, il décida "d'une expérience qui allait être décisive. La grande expérience de l'équilibre des liqueurs a été effectuée au Puy-de-Dôme le 19 septembre 1643. Pascal établit d'une façon irréfutable que la hauteur du mercure suspendue dans le tube de Torricelli pouvait varier avec l'altitude. Il s'ensuit, dit Pascal, que la pesanteur et la pression de l'air sont la seule cause de la suspension du mercure, et non l'horreur du vide, et qu'au contraire la nature s'accommode fort bien du vide." Ainsi le traité de 1663 prouva "non seulement l'expérience de la pression atmosphérique, mais aussi l'existence du vide", un des fondements de la physique moderne (En français dans le texte).

        Gubbio Città Regia Antichissima dell'Umbria

      1663. Opera tratta dal "Theatrum Civitatum et admirandorum Italiae", pubblicato ad Amsterdam nel 1663; testo descrittivo al verso. Johannes Blaeu, durante la sua lunga attività editoriale pubblica tre volumi sulle città italiane. Nel 1663 i primi tre, suddivisi in Stato della Chiesa, Roma e Regno di Napoli e Sicilia. Alla sua morte i suoi eredi danno alla luce altri due volumi datati 1682 incentrati sulle città del Piemonte e della Savoia, poi ristmapti da altri editori nel 1693 e 1697. Il francese Pierre Mortier pubblica una ristampa nel 1704/5, intitolata "Nouveau Theatre de l'Italie". L'opera è in quattro volumi e comprende le lastre del Blaeu, ritoccate e modificate in piccola parte, integrate dall'aggiunta di numerose nuove mappe di proprio disegno, raffiguranti le città della parte settentrionale della penisola, racchiuse nel primo volume dell'opera. L'atlante del Mortier venne pubblicato con testo latino, francese ed olandese. La particolarità che differenzia le due edizioni di Blaeu e Mortier è rappresentata dal fatto che il testo non è al verso della singola mappa (che quindi è bianca nel retro), ma si trova all'inizio di ogni singolo volume. Il grande successo dell'opera diede origine ad un'ulteriore ristampa, praticamente identica, curata da R. Alberts ed edita nel 1724/5.

        Traité des tourbes combustibles

      Jean du Bray & Pierre Variquet, 1663. With engraved vignette on title and the famous portrait of "Monsieur Charles Patin" by Claude Lefebvre, French painter and etcher. Contemporary full calf, slightly warped and somewhat worn; first and last leaves browned around the edges, small waterstain on last blank and paste - down, text in excellent condition. First edition of this very rare treatise describing the use of peat as a fuel. The author discusses the varieties and sources of combustible peat used to make charcoal as well as many useful by - products in agriculture, cooking and botany. At the time, charcoal was believed to mainly consist of bitumen and sulpher, causing strong fumes, which Patin was much opposed to because of his concern with dangers of health caused by inhalation. Proficient in metallurgy, Patin was an early advocate of ecology, with his knowledge that strong organic matter accumulates in the ground and gives rise to significant drops in mineral contents, causing many problems for plant growth. At the end of the book is a proposal of the Sieur de Chambre for the artificial production of peat bogs surrounding Paris along with royal letter patent for a thirty year process. Patin (1633 - 1693), the gifted son of Gui Patin, by the age of 23 completed his law studies and received his M.D. degree. He taught anatomy and pathology at the medical school of Paris, but was obliged to leave France for fear of imprisonment for circulation of certain libels which drew upon him the resentment of the court. He traveled extensively, finally settling in Padua, Italy, where he was appointed professor of chemistry, physic and medicine. He was a man of extensive learning and a voluminous writer in Latin, French, and Italian. Patin is well known for his work on numismatics and medals.
