Valle, Pietro della.
Venice, Paolo Baglioni, 1661-1664. 12mo. 4 vols. (40), 670 pp. (2) ff. (1 blank), 734, (34) pp., (2) ff. (1 blank), 792, (18) pp. 756, (24) pp. Contemp. limp vellum with ms. spine titles; all edges of vol. 2 sprinkled in red. Early duodecimo edition of Della Valle's complete "Viaggi", published while the first complete edition was still under the press. Della Valle's account is highly sought after as one of the earliest printed sources for the early history of Dibba, the coastal region at the northeastern tip of the United Arab Emirates, today ruled by the Emirates of Fujairah and of Sharjah. - Pietro della Valle (1586-1652) left Venice in 1614 on a pilgrimage to Palestine, proceeding to Baghdad and then into Persia, where he married and sojourned in the court of Shah Abbas. While staying with the Sultan of Bandar Abbas, he "met the son of the ruler of Dibba who was visiting. From this he learned that Dibba had formerly been subject to the kingdom of Hormuz, but was at that time loyal to the Safavids who in 1623 sent troops to Dibba, Khor Fakkan and other ports on the southeast coast of Arabia in order to prepare for a Portuguese counter-attack following their expulsion from Hormuz (Jarun). In fact, the Portuguese under Ruy Freire were so successful that the people of Dibba turned on their Safavid overlords, putting them all to death, whereupon a Portuguese garrison of 50 men was installed at Dibba. More Portuguese forces, however, had to be sent to Dibba in 1627 as a result of an Arab revolt. Curiously, two years later the Portuguese proposed moving part of the Mandaean po … [Click Below for Full Description]

Parigi, Giulio (d.1635)
Paris : Jean Savue’ demeur ,rue S. Jacques proche S. Yues, Ave Priviledge du Roy, 1664. [Medici marriage festival, 1608]. Complete suite of 19 leaves comprising title leaf and 18 etchings. Plate size about 5” x 4 ?”, on larger sheets 6 ?” X 5 ?” (Mounted on guards, a few plates slightly shorter, some marginal soiling. The images are fine and sharp). Early 20th-century full brown morocco, spine gilt-lettered. This suite of etchings depicts the mock naval battle called “Argonatica” performed in Florence on the Arno river on Nov. 3, 1608. The “Argonautica” was part of the elaborate celebration of the wedding of Cosimo II, Duke of Tuscany, to Maria Maddalena of Austria. The images were originally published in slightly larger size in Battaglia nauale rapp.a in Arno per le nozze dell ser.mo principe de Toscana l'anno 1608. The ships and floats were designed by Giulio Parigi, with the exception of two that were designed by Jacopo Ligozzi and one by Ludovico Cardi da Cigoli. The 1608 etchings were made Remigio Cantagallina. Here they are printed in reverse from Cantagallina's etchings. This naumachia or water-borne festival enacted a parade and battle between the mythical Argonauts against the armada of Colchis, while relating the love story of Jason, leader of the Argonauts, and Medea, daughter of the King of Colchis. Roy Strong describes the event in his Art and Power: “the most extraordinary and exotic boats had been constructed to bear the knights to the combat.” In their design, which in the main was by Giulio Parigi (d.1635), they belong to a line of … [Click Below for Full Description]

Jollain, François
A Paris: Gerard Iollain, ruë S. Iacques à la ville de Cologne, 1664 A Paris: Gerard Iollain, ruë S. Iacques à la ville de Cologne, 1664. . . Excellent. Large card of 956x786mm, formed by the union of four sheets, two of them engraved (with combined printing) and the other two printed, predesigned to that end. The two upper sheets are composed of a gallery of portraits of all the Spanish kings up to 1664, entitled Portraicts de tous les Roys d Espaigne depuis Atanarezo, qui a commencé a regner en l an de grâce 343 jusqu à Philippe IV du nom à présent. The two lower sheets, printed, feature a summary of the main events that took place during each of their reigning periods. The group contains the most indispensable knowledge for a king about his predecessors, equals, kings of another country, and the main historical landmarks of the country they rule. The author, François Jollain, formulates it with clarity:  it is convenient that each lieutenant on earth [each king] chosen by the King of Kings [God] to rule the fates of a territory knows of the feats and events of their fellow men [the other kings] . Printed in 1664, the last arch of the gallery, was occupied with a portrait of the engraved effigy of monarch number 91, Phillip IV, who was reigning at that time -a present Regnant, with the following arch occupied by the coat of arms of the Spanish House of Bourbons, as can be seen in the fragment catalogued as piece 02265 in the Huesca Museum, where only the two upper sheets with the margins trimm … [Click Below for Full Description]

His translations of these and other works helped form classical taste in the mid-17th century and influenced French prose style. Pages [347]-end contain his translation of the Stratagems of Sextus Julius Frontinus (ca. 40-103 AD), the author of a famous book on the aqueducts of Rome. The Stratagems is a collection of examples of military stratagems from Greek and Roman history, for the use of generals and also drawn from his own experiences as a general in Germany. A fine and fresh copy. Faint dampstaining to upper outer corner and final five leaves with a small stain in upper margin. .

Mather, Richard, and Jonathan Mitchel
Cambridge [Ma.]: Printed by S. Green and M. Johnson for Hezekiah Usher of Boston, 1664. [2],46,102pp. plus the final blank. Small quarto. Modern calf, gilt leather label. Light marginal dampstaining to latter half of text. A few leaves trimmed close, affecting marginal notes in some places. Minor toning and foxing. Very good. A very important early American imprint, the first prose book of over one hundred pages produced in the British North American colonies. It is the longest and probably one of the only obtainable works from the first quarter century of printing in America. This work is of the greatest importance as a document of New England church history. The Synod of 1662 was largely concerned with the question of baptism and the church membership of children. Holmes notes: "...afterwards, church bodies were strained between Synodists and anti-Synodists for half a century or more...Like a red thread in a tapestry, the question of baptism runs through the whole history of the Protestant movement in Europe, in England, and in America. Puritans with strict views, like those held by the Rev. John Davenport of New Haven, administered baptism only to the 'infant seed' of church members of regenerated life who were in full Communion; that is, only to children of persons who had experienced conversion and could give an account of spiritual transformation...." This system of belief worked very well in the first generation of New England settlement, but by the 1650s increasing numbers of the second generation and new immigrants could not qualify themselves to partake of Communi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Fine. quarto, 18, [2] pp., light red smudge to upper blank margin of first page, otherwise a fine clean copy. This decree establishes the French West India Company. The company was formed by this Edit to control all of the French American colonies, already settled or to be settled in South America, the West Indies, and Canada. This well-known company was established for the purpose of opening up trade with America principally along the Amazon, and in Canada, Acadia, Newfoundland, Florida and the islands of the Antilles. The company was granted a monopoly on trade with America, which was to last for forty years. It was supposed to populate Canada, using the profits of the sugar economy that began in Guadeloupe. Its capital was six million pounds and its headquarters was in Le Havre. The stock of the Company was so considerable that in less than six months, 45 vessels were equipped, with which they took possession of all the places in their grant, and established commerce. Despite its special privileges it soon got into difficulties. It was badly hit by the war of 1666 and could not face that of 1672. Colbert would not take over the risks and the Company was dissolved by Royal command in 1674. The King paid its debts amounting to 3,025,000 livres and took its capital of 1,287,185 livres as reimbursement, and the Colonies were reu … [Click Below for Full Description]

VECELLIO, Cesare.
Libro utilissimo a pittori, dissegnatori, scultori, architetti, and ad ogni curioso, e peregrino ingegno. In Venetia, per Combi, and LaNou, 1664 (In Venetia, appresso Gio. Giacomo Hertz, 1664). in-8, pp. (14), 415, (1), leg. coeva in p. pelle, dorso a nervi con tassello granata (abili restauri alle cerniere); al tit. e in fine impresa dell'editore. Terza edizione (prima 1590, seconda 1598), a cura di Salustio Piobbici, che firma la dedica, di quest'opera di straordinario interesse grafico, artistico e storico, essendo una specie di "summa" delle conoscenze sul costume dell'epoca rinascimentale. Le 415 splendide silografie poste al recto e al verso di ogni foglio numerato raffigurano costumi di tutto il mondo, compresi molti inerenti all'Africa ed al Nuovo Mondo (i legni sono gli stessi della seconda edizione ma qui privi di bordura). Cesare Vecellio (ca. 1521-1601, nipote e discepolo prediletto di Tiziano) è noto per avere dipinto le rilegature dei volumi della celebre biblioteca formata a Casteldardo presso Belluno da Odorico Pillone (1506-1594) e da suo figlio Giorgio. L'attribuzione a Tiziano Vecellio dei disegni per le silogr., affermata per la prima volta in questa edizione, e' concordemente respinta (cfr. Tiziano e la xilografia veneziana del Cinquecento. Catalogo a cura di Michelangelo Muraro e David Rosand, Vicenza 1976 p. 143-144). Buon esemplare (piccolo restauro all'angolo superiore della pagina del tit.).

DESCARTES René
Lugduni Batavorum (Leida), ex officina Hackiana, 1664. in-4, pp. (36), 123 (mal num. 121, per doppia numerazione delle pp. 111-112), (5), leg. coeva p. perg. rigida, tit. ms. al dorso. Impresa tipogr. al tit. Adorno di numerose splendide illustrazioni anatomiche incise in rame ed in legno, molte a mezza o a piena pagina, 10 delle quali sono f.t. Seconda edizione, di soli due anni posteriore alla prima apparsa nella stessa città, contemporanea all'edizione originale definitiva, completa e col testo in francese, apparsa a Parigi. Com'è noto, Descartes lavorò all'opera fin dal 1630, ma decise di non pubblicarla, avendo saputo della condanna di Galileo nel 1633. Pur riconoscendo l'importanza della scoperta di Harvey, Descartes non credeva che la circolazione del sangue fosse causata dalle pulsazioni cardiache, bensì considerava il corpo umano come una macchina diretta da un principio razionale situato nella ghiandola pineale. Considerato come il primo tentativo d'abbracciare tutta la fisiologia animale, il "De homine" è in realtà una specie di supplemento fisiologico al "Discours de la Méthode" pubblicato nel 1637 e fu sorgente d'ispirazione per molti studiosi. "This book was the first attempt to cover the whole field of animal physiology. The work is really a physiological aoppendix to his Discourse on method." (Garrison-Morton). Opera di fondamentale importanza, tra i più eminenti prodotti dell'ingegno umano. Buon esempl. (lieve brunitura della carta). Garrison Morton 574. Wellcome Cat. II, 453. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

DESCARTES, RENÉ. - [THE WORLD AND THE THEORY OF LIGHT]
Paris, Iacques le Gras, 1664. 8vo. Very nice contemporary full mottled calf with five raised bands to richly gilt spine. All edges of boards gilt. Old owner's name to title-page (Cognel, 1741). A small marginal strip of paper to outer blank margin of title-page, far from affecting printing, and very discreet. A lovely copy with large margins. (16), 260; 31; 30 pp. + final blank. Woodcut initials and vignettes. Richly illustrated in the text and with five full page illustrations (all woodcut). ¶ First edition of one of Descartes' most important works, his seminal "The World", which contains the fullest exposition of his philosophy, covering everything from method to metaphysics, astronomy, physics and biology.It is in this foundational work, written in the 1630'ies, that Descartes presents us with his corpuscular cosmology and explains the creation of the solar system and the heliocentric system in general. As the entire philosophy presented in the work is based upon the heliocentric view, it is no wonder that Descartes, after having heard of Galileo's conviction due to suspection of heresy, delayed publishing the book (see eg. his letters to Marin Mersenne), which then only appeared posthumously, in 1664."...he had given an account in "Le monde, ou Traité de la lumière" of cosmogony and cosmology as products simply of matter in motion, making the laws of motion the ultimate "laws of nature" and all scientific explanation ultimately mechanistic. This treatise remained unpublished in Descartes' lifetime. So too did the associated L'homme...He withheld these essays...and inste … [Click Below for Full Description]
