1664. BOCQUET, Nicolas. Le Magnifique Carousel fait sur le Fleuue de l'Arne a Florence, pour le Mariage du Grand Duc. Comprised of an engraved title and 18 engraved plates. Oblong 8vo., 142 x 175 mm, bound in early twentieth-century full brown morocco, gilt lettered spine. Paris: Chez Jean Sauve, 1664. |~||~||~||~| This rare suite of engravings with title form the complete festival book produced in Paris to celebrate the marriage of Cosimo II, Duke of Tuscany, to Maria Maddalena of Austria. Cosimo had been tutored by Galileo who dedicated his Sidereus Nuncius to him when he published it in 1610. The engravings document the mock naval battle between the Argonauts and the armada of Colchis performed as part of the wedding celebration on the Arno before invited wedding guests. The ships and floats were designed by Giulio Parigi, with the exception of two by Jacopo Ligozzi and one by Ludovico Cardi da Cigoli. The prints are derived from Remigio Cantagallina's etchings issued at the time of the wedding, and printed in reverse from the originals. The inscriptions in the lower margin contain variations in spelling and wording and additional inscriptions identifying the characters in the ships and floats. OCLC lists only two copies of the original 1608 edition, of which one is a fragment, and one copy of a 1662 edition published by Baltasar Moncornet. They also list a 1664 edition published by Giffart with no holdings. Vinet, Bibliographie Methodique et Raisonne Beaux-arts 607. Lipperheide 2743 (Moncornet edition).

NADASDY, Ferencz III, Count de.
Nuremberg: Endter, 1664. Folio, title-page in black and red, additional engraved title, 59 full-page portrait engravings in the text; in contemporary vellum, spine lettered in ink. First edition of this handsome work on the Hungarian monarchy with a wonderful series of fifty-nine full-length heraldic portraits of kings and nobles of Hungary, sometimes with detailed views in the background of battles, landscapes, or cities. The text contains laudatory poetry for past kings and leaders, in both German and Latin.Ferencz III, Count de Nádasdy, was a prominent nobleman and patriotic Hungarian statesman who opposed the despotic policy of the Emperor Leopold. Unjustly condemned for conspiring against Leopold, he was beheaded in 1671. In this book, which is dedicated to the Hungarian nobility, he had promoted the idea of an independent Hungarian monarchy. The unsigned engravings, here in notably fine and dark impressions, are of great quality.Further editions of the work appeared in 1667 and 1758, and a modern critical edition was published in Budapest in 1991.The book is rare on the market, with just one poor copy recorded at public sale since 1986. A little spotting but a very nice copy.

Homann, Johann Baptist
Europe: Nuremberg Homann, Johann Baptist c1720. Copper engraved map of the continent of Europe by Johann Bapt. Homann from his "Grosser Atlas" Original colour, verso blank. Decorative title cartouche black and white as issued. Fair impression; title cartouche some what weak impression by Iceland; lower centrefold tear, repaired, by use of guard at verso. Johann Baptist Homann (1664 ?" 1724) from 1687 Homann 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 recommendation for potential customers. In 1716 Homann published his masterpiece "Grosser Atlas ueber die ganze Welt" Numerous maps were drawn up in cooperation with the engraver Christoph Weigel the Elder, Homann died in Nuremberg. He was succeeded by the Homann heirs company, in business until 1848, known as "Homann Erben", "Homanniani Heredes", "Heritiers de Homann" abroad. Europe Europe as Continent

Frontespizio impresso in rosso e nero, con tavola calcografica che riporta il motto della Crusca "Il più bel fior ne coglie", ripetuta in xilografia al verso della carta L4.

Francesco Redi (Arezzo, 1626 ? 1697), naturalista, medico e letterato, compì gli studi a Firenze e a Pisa, laureandosi in Filosofia e Medicina, per poi entrare al servizio dei Medici. Fu arciconsolo della Crusca dal 1678 al 1690, partecipando ai lavori della terza edizione del "Vocabolario" e fu tra i fondatori dell'"Accademia del Cimento". Nominato archiatra del Granduca Ferdinando II, lasciò vari importanti studi tanto letterarari quanto scientifici, e morì a Pisa nel 1697. "I suoi studi, fra i quali quelli intorno alla generazione spontanea e al veleno delle vipere, rivestono particolare importanza nella storia della scienza moderna, per la loro opera di demolizione di alcune teorie di stampo aristotelico a favore di un'attività sperimentale e per la loro applicazione in campo medico di una pratica terapeutica di impostazione ippocratica, costruita su regole di prevenzione e sull'uso di rimedi esclusivamente naturali e su precetti di vita equilibrata. Pubblicò un gran numero di ricerche naturalistiche, che destarono grande interesse in tutta Europa. Nelle "Osservazioni Intorno alle Vipere" dimostrò che il veleno di questi animali, contrariamente alla comun … [Click Below for Full Description]

BECHER Johann Joachim.
Apud Hermannum à Sande 1664 Testo latino. Cm.13x7,7. Pg.(12), 192, (8). Legatura in piena pergamena rigida con unghie e laccetti di chiusura, sempre pergamenacei. Titotli manoscritti al dorso. La seconda carta del volume è collazionata su carta diversa dalle altre: al recto vi compare una vignetta allegorica raffigurante Edipo e la Sfinge, al verso l'incipit della Dedicatoria al Sig. "Francisco De Le Böe, dicto Sylvio". Una carta fuori testo raffigurante la "Divina Metamorphosis" (medaglia di Praga, 1648). Cartiglio decorativo inciso in fine al testo. Al foglio di guardia antica notazione di proprietà manoscritta, con timbro in ceralacca e piccolo cartiglio ritagliato e incollato. Figlio di un ministro luterano, il medico e matematico Johann Joachim Becher (Speyer, 1635 - 1682) fu in gioventù al servizio dell'Elettore di Mainz in qualità di docente di medicina presso il locale ateneo. Ebbe vita assai avventurosa, svolgendo importanti mansioni in Baviera, a Vienna, in Olanda e a Londra. Il presente costituisce il suo testo più conosciuto. Si tratta di un approfondito studio di chimica e di alchimia, in cui il Becher (nome latinizzato Becherius) tratta delle principali sostanze e operazioni chimiche. In particolare si spinge a confutare la fondatezza dei quattro elementi aristotelici (aria, acqua, terra e fuoco) e dei tre principi della qualità di Paracelso (zolfo, sale, mercurio) dando così impulso alle nuove teorie già esposte dall'Helmont e dal Boyle.

Dezember 1560 in Rosny bei Mantes-la-Jolie (Yvelines); gest. 21. Dezember 1641 in Villebon (Eure-et-Loir), 20 km westlich von Chartres) war ein hochrangiger französischer Artillerieoffizier (Großmeister der Artillerie von Frankreich), Minister, Staatsmann, Marschall von Frankreich und Freund Heinrichs IV. Sein vollständiger Name und Titel lautete: Maximilien (Ier) de Bethune, Duc de Sully, Baron de Rosny, Pair de France, Prince Souverain d'Henrichemont et de Boisbelle, Marquis de Nogent-le-Rotrou, Comte de Muret et de Villebon, Vicomte de Meaux. Sully wurde in der reformierten Kirche erzogen und zugleich mit Heinrich von Navarra unterrichtet. Er nahm mit Auszeichnung an den Feldzügen des jungen Königs von Navarra teil und kämpfte bei Coutras (1587) und bei Ivry (1590) mit. Ein strenger Calvinist, stolz und schroff, trat er auch seinem königlichen Freund, besonders seiner Verschwendung und Ausschweifung, wiederholt mit Energie entgegen; doch vereinte beide bald wieder die gemeinsame Liebe zum Vaterland.

Engraved frontis portrait, woodcut printer's devices, initials, ornaments, and numerous textual woodcuts. Contemporary speckled calf, gilt panelled spine between raised bands. Binding a little rubbed at extremities, but on the whole an exceptionally clean, crisp copy internally, in a remarkably well-preserved binding. An early combined edition of Descartes's Philosophical Works, containing 1. "Principia Philosophiae", first published in Latin at Amsterdam in 1644. This is perhaps the most comprehensive of all Descartes's works, treating of both his theory of mind and his philosophy of matter. After recapitulating the conclusions concerning the mind arrived at the "Meditations" in part one, he goes on in the remainder of the work to deal with the principles of physical science, the concept of matter as extension, the laws of motion, the phenomena of heat, light , gravity, etc., and, at a more general level, the nature and justification of scientific hypothesis. This work also contains Descertes's famous vortex theory, by which he tried to reconcile Copernican astronomy with Biblical teaching, as well as the first scientific theory of magnetism. 2. The "Discourse on Method", which prefaces the treatises on "Dioptrics" and "Meteors", was first published in French as "Discours de la Methode" in 1637, and later appeared in a Latin version, revised by Descartes, as "Specimina Philosophicae" in 1644.

DNB, " More belonged to that little band of Christian Platonists which were formed at Cambridge in the middle of the seventeenth century, and the distinctive traits of their school of thought are perhaps best bought out in his writings. The " occult sciences," of which such men as Van Helmont and Greatrakes were in More's time the apostles, had a singular fascination for him . More thoroughly sympathised with Glanvill in his intense belief in witchcraft and apparitions." Henry More is believed to have been the editor of Glanvill's, Saducismus Triumphatus ( 1681 ).

Justinian I, Emperor of the East

Quo Continentur Institutionum Libri Quatuor, et Digestorum Sive Pandectarum Libri Quinquaginta. Amsterdam: Johannes Blaeu and Louis and Daniel Elzevier, 1663, 1664. Two volumes, each with title page and individual pagination. Volume I preceded by handsome copperplate allegorical title page (which is misbound after index).

Later straight-grained morocco, gilt fillets and frames to boards, gilt spines and inside dentelles, moire endpapers, ribbon markers, all edges gilt.

A handsome set with a nice association. * Commissioned by the Emperor Justinian in 530 CE, the body of writings known collectively as the Corpus Juris Civilis reformed, restated and preserved early Roman law. Its subsequent influence on European jurisprudence is difficult to underestimate. According to Willems, this edition is renowned for its excellent typography. Lewisohn [1849-1938] was a prominent New York investment banker, mining magnate and philanthropist.

[MACHIAVELLI, Niccolò]. [LE FÈVRE, Tanneguy, translator].
[?Saumur], 1664. Small 8vo (140 × 90 mm), pp. 139, [1], woodcut ornaments. Later (nineteenth-century) vellum with overlapping fore-edges. Slightly soiled. A very good copy. This French adaptation of Machiavelli's fable Belfagor arcidiavolo ('The Devil takes a Wife') was probably the version used by La Fontaine for the version (Belphégor) he included in the last volume of his Fables (1693). Le Fèvre's version had first appeared in a very rare edition of 1661 (OCLC lists the Bn de France copy only) and this 1664 edition has Le Fèvre's version of Plutarch's Theseus added. The printer and place of publication has been deduced from copies in which it is bound with Le Fèvre's Les poètes grecs (also 1664). Classicist Tanneguy Le Fèvre had been inspector of the Imprimerie royale at the Louvre before his appointment as professor at the protestant Académie at Saumur. He courted controversy with several of his works, judged libertine by his contemporaries, notably his biography of Sappho, in which he desisted from censuring her sexuality. Gay, III, 48, cf. Cioranescu 41672 (1661).
