Biet, Antoine
Including a dictionary of the Galibi language. 1664. Paris. Francois Clousier. In 4to (230 mm x 170 mm). 1 [blank] + 12 ff. + 432 + 1 [blank]. Excellent copy in contemporary calf, raised bands to spine, lettered and tooled in gilt, gently worn. Scattered foxing and light browning, else fine. First edition. In 1652 Father Biet sailed towards Cayenne to visit the French settlement under the command of Royville (and most immediately the Abbe de L? Isle-Marivault, although he never reached his destination, leaving Biet as head of the Spiritual mission), the expedition consisted of 600 men. During his time abroad Biet made trips to Barbados, Martinique and Guadalupe. The work is divided into three parts: the first deals with the journey to Cayenne and the French settling of the colony; the second with the 15 months of the duration of the expedition, the richest in details on the experiences of the settlers; and the third with the natural history, fertility of the land, and ethnological aspects of the natives, their costumes, language and manners. On pp. 339 ? 432 there is a dictionary of the Galibi language. The work is rather hard to find, and much sought after as a fundamental source of information, virtually unparalleled by contemporaneous reports. Leclerc, 165. Sabin, 5269. Chadenat, 18. JCB, 664/15.

MEJER, JOHANNES - FEMERN.
*** Kort over øen Femern samt et del af det tyske fastland fra Grossenbrode til Heiligenhafen. Kobberstik. 23 x 29,5 cm. Både titelkartouche og dedikationskartouche er koloreret. 18 linjers tekst på hollandsk under kortet samt 10 linjer på bagsiden. [Amsterdam, Johannes Blaeu, ca. 1664]. Papirmål : 54 x 33,5 cm. - Papiret er renset. Johannes Mejer (1606-1674), kartograf fra Husum i Slesvig.I perioden 1638 til 1648 opmålte han Slesvig og Holsten. En række af disse kort blev gengivet i bogen "Newe Landesbeschreibung der zwey Herzogthümer Sleswich und Holstein" med tekst af Caspar Danckwerth. Kortene var i sort / hvid og en kolorering vil derfor være senere. Oplagets størrelse kendes ikke, men der er vidnesbyrd om, at udover de aftalte eksemplarer blev der - uden Mejers godkendelse - fremstillet ialt ca. 21000 enkelttryk af hans kort.I 1656 erhvervede Johannes Blaeu i Amsterdam kobberpladerne, og han anvendte dem nogle år senere i sine store Atlasudgivelser på latin, fransk, hollandsk, tysk og spansk. I Blaeus udgaver har Johannes Mejers kort fået en titel på latin i stedet for tysk samt ( ofte, men ikke altid ) tekst på bagsiden - og de fleste eksemplarer er koloreret i samtiden.Johannes Mejers kort over Slesvig og Holsten fik en lang levetid: Frem til omkring år 1800 var de grundlaget for alle andre kort over Hertugdømmerne.

At the same time, the Enquiry was a vigorous defense of the Church of England against the same charge of Antichristianism made by Protestant nonconformists who were suffering under the impositions of Charles' parliament, and perhaps more predictably, defen … [Click Below for Full Description]

A very good copy of an early collected edition. René Descartes (1596 – 1650) was a highly influential French philosopher, mathematician, scientist, and writer. Dubbed the "Founder of Modern Philosophy", and the "Father of Modern Mathematics", much of subsequent western philosophy is a reaction to his writings, which have been closely studied from his time down to the present day. His influence in mathematics is also apparent, the Cartesian coordinate system used in plane geometry and algebra being named after him, and he was one of the key figur … [Click Below for Full Description]

Titelbladet lite solkigt. En genomgående fuktfläck i nedre halvan av inlagan. Med talrika samtida anteckningar på de interfolierade bladen och enstaka marginalnoteringar. En liten reva i övre marginalen på s. 59. Med J. Trodians, M. Stålbergs, A. G. Sefströms och O. Hallborgs namnteckningar, den första daterad den 5 mars 1664.. Collijn Sveriges bibliografi 1600-talet 219. Även tänkt att ingå som en del i Edenius (1624-66) aldrig färdigutgivna "Opuscula theologica". Verket tycks presentera en metod att memorera bibeln, dess kapitel och verser. Det är av allt att döma den första ägaren som har gjort de många prydliga anteckningarna. Kyrkoherdesonen Johannes Olai Trodian från Segersta i Hälsingland, skrevs in vid Uppsala universitet i oktober 1660. Han prästvigdes 1676 och blev kyrkoherde i Arnö i Uppland 1683 samt dog i pesten 1710. Anteckningarna är förmodligen gjorda av Trodian i samband med Edenius föreläsningar i teologi vid Uppsala universitet. Anders Gustaf Sefström (1790-1861) var pastor i Bjuråker och psalmboksförfattare, representerad i bl.a. "Sions sånger"

CASSINI, Giovanni Domenico.
First editions of these two exceptionally rare Cassini publications on the comet of 1664-5. Cassini observed the comet "in the presence of Queen Christina [to whom the first work is dedicated] and formulated on this occasion a new theory (in agreement with the Tychonian system) in which the orbit of the comet is a great circle whose center is situated in the direction of Sirius and whose perigee is beyond the orbit of Saturn." (DSB).<br/><br/> Cassini's detailed observations of the comet were made with a powerful new telescope. "Through his friendship with the famous Roman lensmakers Giuseppe Campani and Eustachio Divini, Cassini, beginning in 1664, was able to obtain from them powerful celestial telescopes of great focal length. He used these instruments-very delicate and extremely accurate for the time- with great skill, and made within several years a remarkable series of observations..." (ibid). In the preface to the work Cassini describes the telescopes, and the first observations made with them.<br/><br/> The large engraved plate depicts the course of the comet in the southern celestial hemisphere from December 13 1664 through the middle of January of 1665. It also shows the appearance and direction of the comet's tail in a series of nightly dated observations. <br/><br/> The great comet of 1664-5 was observed my many astronomers, including Auzout, Borelli, Fabri, Hooke, Hevelius, and Petit.<br/><br/> The second work, addressed to the archaeologist Falconieri, presents further observations on the comet, and Cassini remarks about the observations made by Auzout and Hev … [Click Below for Full Description]

This book was the first attempt to cover the whole field of 'animal physiology'.

Schorer studierte in Strassburg, betrieb zugleich auch astronomische Studien und veröffentlichte 1641 einen astrologischen Kalender, von dem 30 weitere Jahrgänge erschienen sind. 1643 brachte er in Basel zu, bereiste darauf Burgund, hielt sich einige Zeit in Montbéliard auf und begab sich hierauf nach Padua, wo er 1654 promovierte. Nach Deutschland zurückgekehrt, ließ er sich an seinem Geburtsort nieder, erwarb dort das Vertrauen des Herzogs von Württenberg. 1655 wurde er Stadtphysikus von Memmingen.

BLAEU, WILLEM & J. - ICELAND.
(Amsterdam, omkr. 1664). 38x50 cm. Kobberstukket kort over Island med stor kartouche, kompasrose, skibe og havuhyrer i søen. I samtidig håndkolorering. Meget svagt brunet, lille brud i centerfoldningen, men intet tab. Det karakteriske, kendte Islands-kort er her indrammet i en bred antik guldramme med glas på for-og bagside således at den hollandske tekst på kortets bagside kan læses.. Blaeu's islandskort optræder første gang 1630 i "Atlantis Appendix", hans første atlasudgivelse. Siden optrykt mange gange i de forskellige udgaver af "Atlas Major". Med den hollandske tekst på bagsiden er kortet formentlig fra "Grooten Atlas" 1664, selv om Blaeu's navn ikke optræder i kartouchen

Levanto, Francesco Maria
Genoa: Francesco Maria Levanto, 1664. unbound. very good(+). Sea chart. Uncolored engraving. Image measures 15.75" x 20.5". This incredible 1664 map of Corfu, the second largest Greek Island in the Ionian Sea, was issued by Captain Francesco Maria Levanto. The maritime map or sea chart includes the islands of Corfu, Paxi and the western coast of Greece with north oriented towards the left. Numerous rhumb lines, coastal features, depth soundings, anchorages, shoals, and banks surrounding the islands are noted and serve as a useful guide to the mariner. The island of Corfu was known to be the bulwark of the European States against the Ottomans and was one of the most fortified places in Europe. The Old Venetian Fortress of Corfu (la Citta di Corfu), identified here, successfully repulsed the major Ottoman sieges of 1537, 1571 and 1716. This map appeared in Levanto's "Prima parte dello specchio del mare..." (Mirror of the Sea). The atlas was largely based on the work of Anthonie Jacobz and later Pieter Goos (who bought the plates from Jacobz in 1650). Levanto's atlas is the Italian translation and was one of the earliest Italian nautical atlases. The map is in good condition with minor aging along edges. Paper is clean and bright. Increasingly rare Italian map and a fine example of Levanto's work.

LABBÉ, Philippe
16 p.l., 394 (i.e. 392) pp. 8vo, cont. vellum over boards (minor browning). Paris: L. Billaine, 1664. "This is the first edition of the earliest extant bibliography of bibliographies (despite the 'curis secundis auctior' on the title). It is basically an alphabetical list, arranged by authors' first names, followed by eight intricate subject indices, among them one of publishers' and booksellers' catalogues. Appended is a very useful numismatic bibliography. The work enjoyed three later editions during the seventeenth century and provided the basis for Teissier...Labbé (1607-67), one of the most learned polymaths of his time, was a Jesuit professor of philosophy in Paris."-Grolier Club, Bibliography, 62. Haebler, in his Handbuch, states that this is the second book on incunabula and the first in which the word is used in connection with printing. A fine copy and rare. Old stamp on verso of title and another on following leaf. ❧ Besterman, The Beginnings of Systematic Bibliography, pp. 50 & 54. Taylor, Book Catalogues, pp. 176, 208, & 219-20. .
