First edition, and a very handsome copy in contemporary red morocco, ruled in red throughout, of this collection of aphorisms and apothegms of classical writers, gathered, edited, and translated by Ablancourt (1606-64), a well-known literary figure of the period. He was famous as a translator of classical Greek and Latin texts and maintained a number of controversial theories regarding translation. 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. .

Leg. antica m.pergamena, titolo ms. al dorso a nervi. Testo adorno di 62 ritratti di uno o due sovrani entro sfarzosa bordura barocca; 3 splendide e rare carte geografiche, ciascuna impressa su due fogli, rappresentanti "La gran penisola della Scandia ", "La vera Lombardia" e "Il contato del Canavese"; frontespizi, tavole allegoriche, 63 testatine, 63 grandi iniziali e 60 culs-de-lamp incisi in rame.

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]

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.

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]

Second edition (first was Mexico, 1664) of the standard biography of Father Basalenque (1577-1651), the Provincial of the Augustinians in Michoacan and the author of Arte de la lengua tarasca, the best colonial-era grammar of the Tarascan (Purépecha) language, and of Historia de la Provincia de San Nicolás de Tolentino de Michoacán, del Orden de N.P.S. Agustín, the respected history of his order in Michoacan. He was also an accomplished student of the Matlatltzinga language, leaving unpublished (until the 20th century) several manuscripts.

This second edition additionally contains Lucas Centeno's compilation of the documents relating to the reinterment of Fr. Basalenque's remains in the Convento de Santa María de Gracia in Valladolid (now Morelia), Mexico.

Although educated at a Jesuit school, and preparing for an ecclesiastical career, he eventually converted to Protestantism and from 1687 worked as a civil law notary in Nuremberg. 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. Of particular significance to cartography were the imperial printing privileges (Latin: privilegia impressoria). These protected for a time the authors in all scientific fields such as printers, copper engravers, map makers and publishers. They were also very important as a recommendation for potential customers.In 1716 Homann published his masterpiece Grosser Atlas ueber die ganze Welt (Grand Atlas of all the World). Numerous maps were drawn up in cooperation with the engraver Christoph Weigel the Elder, who also published Siebmachers Wappenbuch.Homann died in Nuremberg. He was succeeded by the Homann heirs company, which was in business until 1848. The company was known … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bartoli, Daniello.
Milano: Lodovico Monza, 1664. 12mo. [4] ff., 193, [1] p., [1] f. Rodolfo Acquaviva (a.k.a., Ridolfo Aquaviva), nephew of Claudio Acquaviva the fifth Superior General of the Society of Jesus (1581–1615), after his Jesuit novitiate was ordained a priest in 1578 at Lisbon and sailed for India. Arriving in India he taught at the Jesuit school (Saint Paul's College) in Goa, founded by St. Francis Xavier and the site of the first printing press in India. In 1580 the Mughal Emperor Akbar the Great summoned him to his court and thus began Acquaviva's mission to the Mughal empire. His was, in fact, the first Jesuit mission there. As Prof. Emerita Frances W. Pritchett of Columbia University writes on her great website (http://www.columbia.edu/itc/mealac/pritchett/00islamlinks/ikram/part2_12.html): "Of all the aspects of Akbar's life and reign, few have excited more interest than his attitude toward religion. . . . [H]e built the Ibadat Khana, the House of Worship, which he set apart for religious discussions. Every Friday after the congregational prayers, scholars, dervishes, theologians, and courtiers interested in religious affairs would assemble in the Ibadat Khana and discuss religious subjects in the royal presence." It was to these discussions/conversations/debates that Acquaviva was invited. The religions represented were many, the major participants including Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Jains, and Zoroastrians. After several months Acquaviva felt his contributions to the debates insufficient to justify continuing as part of the mission and left the task to fellow … [Click Below for Full Description]
