LEVANTO FRANCESCO MARIA
Marino e Celle. In Folio (mm 418x283); carte 3 non numerate compreso lo splendido frontespizio allegorico figurato, dedica e dedica al lettore; 152 pagine, 25 carte nautiche incise in rame. Anche le pagine di testo sono corredate da numerose illustrazioni silografiche di rade, porti e profili costieri. Pergamena settecentesca con titolo in oro su tassello. Tagli azzurrati. Esemplare molto bello, ben inchiostrato, del celebre atlante nautico. Minimi difetti alle ultime carte con rinforzo marginale delle ultime due e saltuarie macchie. Lo specchio del mare, atlante-portolano del Mediterraneo pubblicato nella sua prima edizione a Genova nel 1664 ed in seconda edizione nel 1679. Poco si conosce su tale capitano genovese Francesco Maria Levanto, che "a sue spese" fece incidere le più accreditate carte nautiche disponibili sul bacino del Mediterraneo dell'epoca. Le scarne notizie ci informano che l'atlante - di pregevole fattura - presenta alcuni di questi documenti elaborati negli anni precedenti dallo stesso Levanto insieme ad altri tratti da un'opera olandese, De Lichtende Colomne ofte Zeespigel, pubblicata una ventina di anni prima da Anthoni Jacobsz e riutilizzata in seguito da numerosi altri cartografi (Goos, Donker, Thornton, Van Keulen ed altri). Infatti, la prima carta dell'Autore reca la seguente illuminante dicitura: costruite in Amsterdam et corrette dal Cap. Francesco Maria Levanto et a sue spese intagliate l'anno 1663. Le carte nautiche riprendono in modo chiaro l'opera di Anthoni Jacobsz (1606-1650) "Gran libro di itinerari del mar Mediterraneo", di grande rarità, … [Click Below for Full Description]

Peter Stuyvesant Confirms a Manhattan Land Grant Only Three Months Before Handing Over "Niew Amsterdam" to the British Stuyvesant grants land to Daniel Perneur on the "island of Manhattans about the Town of new Harlem... Lying against the Land of Jochim Pieterse... also three parcels at Van Ceulen's Hoeck." In turn, Terneur agreed to pay his taxes and otherwise "obey their Patrons as good inhabitants are in duty bound to do." With an embossed beaver seal (the symbol of the New Netherland) affixed, Stuyvesant confirms the grant of a plot of land to Daniel Terneur. Three months later, on September 8, 1664, the inhabitants of New Amsterdam chose British rule when they refused to defend the colony ruled by their draconian Dutch Governor Peter Stuyvesant. He was forced to surrender the city to the British forces. PETER STUYVESANT. Manuscript Document Signed. Land Grant to Daniel Terneur, [New York, N.Y.], May 16, 1664. 1 p., 16½ x 13 in.

I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. "The first method for estimating the intelligence of a ruler is to look at the men he has around him." ― Niccolò Machiavelli, The Prince Niccolo Machiavelli is one of the most important figures in 15th- and early 16th-century Renaissance philosophy. His works helped define what has become political science. His most famous work "The Prince" has infamously coined the term 'Machiavellianism' regarding politics and dishonest politicians. It has often been considered the first work of modern philosophy, mostly because it conflicts so strongly with Catholic doctrines concerning politics and ethics at the time. "The Art of War," Machiavelli's treatise on military science, was the only theoretical or historical work to be published during his lifetime. This book of 'high military' concepts discusses military discipline, civilian interactions, how to live without factions, how to define war, and how to conduct diplomacy during a time of war. In 'The Prince,' Machiavelli treads a line between accepting tyranny and supporting free republic. He advises leaders on 'acceptable' tyranny, justifying many immoral actions taken by kings and princes; however, this point likely was written to encourage medieval Catholicism to be less strict in their relationship with the law. Ultimately, Machiavelli was seeking to provide rulers with a guide on how to be accepted by their subjects - however necessary - be it commanding respect, demanding actions through law, using bribery, or even imparting fear.

PICCIOLI, ANTONIO
Venetiis, apud Ioannem Viezzerium, 1664. Small folio (28.5 x 19.5cm), contemporary presentation binding in vellum richly gilt on boards with golden roll borders and corner tools, central golden fleuron with painted coat-of-arms, golden gauffered edges (rear cover with lack of vellum at the edge, top and bottom of spine defective). Pp. (14), 177, (3), textually complete, inside in clean condition (some browning due to paper quality, some spots to pp. 47/48). Frequent misnumbering of pages. First and only edition, mostly bibliographically unknown, and certainly printed in a very limited number of copies. It is apparently lacking the engraved portrait of the author, however, on Worldcat/KVK are listed only 2 other copies, in the ONB in Wien and in the British Library, both listed without mention of the portrait. No copy listed in Germany, apparently. Under a pharmaceutical point of view this book is relevant for the 4th and final chapter, containing the section ‘De medicamentis’, starting from p. 165, leaf X3r, with a list of pharmaceutical remedies and syrups.

Amstelodami: sumptibus Andreæ Frisii, 1664.
1664. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Girolamo Maggi was an early 16th-century Italian scholar who composed several military treatises. His two most famous works are often found printed and bound together, 'De Tintinnabulis' and 'De Equuleo'. While imprisoned by the Turks in the dungeons of Constantinople, Maggi wrote these works recounting his encounters on bells and on torture - two remarkably different works. 'Tintinnaublis' is Maggi's reaction to the lack of bells and bell towers in Constantinople. He covers the history of bells and the transmission of sounds through church steeples and towers. It features fascinating engravings depicting bells and bell ringers, however, the most important illustration is a folding engraving of the Leaning Tower of Pisa. This work features the notes and commentary of Franciscus Sweertius. 'Equuleo' is a much more difficult work to palate. This treatise accurately describes the methods and instruments of torture including many fine, but unsettling engravings of the treatment of martyrs. The Ottoman's overseeing the prison in which Maggi resided ordered him to be executed by the torture of strangulation. This work includes notes and commentary of Gottfried Jungermann.

1664. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. "Happiness can only be achieved by looking inward & learning to enjoy whatever life has and this requires transforming greed into gratitude." ― John Chrysostom A rare 17th-century printing of John Chrysostom's sermons and homilies. Chrysostom was one of the most important Early Christian Church authors and preachers and is most remembered for his sermons and homilies. He preached on many different subjects, but his most frequented topic was helping the needy. Chrysostom calls for followers of Jesus to set aside their material desires to help the poor, often in a way that shamed the rich and guilted them in to giving. "Do you pay such honor to your excrements as to receive them into a silver chamber-pot when another man made in the image of God is perishing in the cold?" (Chrysostom in Liebeschuetz) This three-volume edition was edited and translated by Paul Antoine de Marsilly. [Attributes: First Edition]

Masaniello was described as, "...a young man of twenty-seven, beautiful and graceful in appearance, his face was brown and somewhat burned by the sun: black eyes, blond hair, with locks that ran down his neck." (St. John., 68) This fine book, finely rebound in Moroccan red leather, includes a full-page woodcut portrait of Masaniello. This book is considered very rare. The translator, James Howell, was the 'author of the most curious volumes in English literature' (Hawkins, Library Catalog, 1990). [Attributes: First Edition]

BYTHNER, Victorinus
I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. An incredibly rare analysis of the Psalms of David by Victorinus Bythner. Bythner wrote this work as a reference on the language and vocabulary used in the psalms in both Hebrew and Latin. This work saw substantial popularity and was reprinted through the mid-19th-century. According to the 'Dictionary of National Biography', "Bythner's grammatical works, though written in curiously faulty Latin, are models of lucid and compact arrangement, and continued long in use... The most important 'Lyra Prophetica Davids Regis' is a grammatical analysis of every word in the Hebrew psalter." (DNB) Bythner first published this work in 1650, and two editions were printed in 1664. This, the first of the two, has a different publisher imprint than the latter. (Wing).

He soon turned to engraving and cartography; in 1702 he founded his own publishing house.Homann acquired renown as a leading German cartographer, and in 1715 was appointed Imperial Geographer by Emperor Charles VI. Giving such privileges to individuals was an added right that the Holy Roman Emperor enjoyed. In the same year he was also named a member of the Prussian Academy of Sciences in Berlin.
