        Relacão do Novo Caminho que Fez por Terra, e Mar, vindo sa India para Portugal no anno de 1663

      Lisbon: Officina de Henrique Valente de Oliveir, 1665. First and the only contemporary edition of one of the earliest and certainly the most interesting Jesuit accounts of India, a classic of Portuguese travel literature from the very end of Portuguese domination of the country, written shortly before Bombay was ceded once and for all to the English in accordance with the Anglo-Portuguese peace treaty of 1661. A Portuguese Jesuit, Godinho was in India from 1655 to 1663, and the work gives a closely observed picture of Indian society: “The State of India is so decrepit that we have it only in name. If it has not died yet, it is because it has not found a grave commensurate with its greatness. If once a tree, it is now a trunk; if once a building, it is now a ruin; if once a man, it is now a stump...” (p. 26). The work contains an overview of India, followed by individual chapters on Bassein, Daman, and Surat, where he recounts his theological discussion with a Hindi Brahmin and gives an account of the great Mughal; whence on to Ormuz, the Persia Gulf, Iraq, Syria and Egypt and back to Lisbon. “Particularly attractive in the Relação are the pictures he draws of the peoples, manners and customs of the regions he traversed... And Godinho in his clear and incisive style, seasoned with cheerful humour and occasional irony, is entertainingly informative with his descriptions of Arab brigandage and hospitality, of Hindu customs and Muslim festivals. Though unswerving in his loyalty to his faith and country, he can both praise the character of the Persians and the hospitals of Aleppo, and condemn the rapacity and dishonesty of his own country.” -- Correia-Afonso, p. 12. Godinho returned to Lisbon entrusted with a secret mission from the Viceroy, Mello de Castro. Long an object of speculation, this was only recently revealed to be what had long been suspected, namely an urgent plea to the Portuguese King not to cede Bombay. (See Correia-Afonoso, p. 10). *Palau 103, 032; Heredia 2881; John Correia-Afonso, Intrepid Itinerant. Manuel Godinho and his Journey from India to Portugal in 1663 (1990).. 4to. in 8’s, (6) ff., 188 pp., including engraved arms of dedicatee on 2nd leaf signed Juan Battista.

        Tartaros en China, Historia que escrivio en Latin el R. P. Matin Martinio, de la Compañia de Iesus

      The rare first Spanish edition of Martini?s famed History of China. 1665. Madrid. Joseph Fernandez de Buenca. In 8vo (137 mm x 90 mm). 20 ff. + 188. Eighteenth century calf, spine gilt with floral tooling and red morocco lettering piece, gently rubbed, upper compartment restored. Upper margin a little short, paper browned as always for Spanish 17th century paper, ex libris removed from verso of title page causing foxing and creasing, ff. 51 with paper loss just touching one letter, a few foxing spots but overall very good. First edition. This Spanish translation was prepared by Estevan de Aguilar y Zuñiga. Martini (1614 - 1661) was a remarkable Italian Jesuit, cartographer and traveller; he is known for his history of China and his cartographic renderings of the country; the latter so important, that eventually were published as one of the volumes of Blaeu?s monumental "Atlas Nuevo de la extrema Asia, o descripcion geographica del Imperio de las Chinas", published in 1658. Martini sailed to China in 1640, making port in Macau in 1642, where he stayed for over 10 years ?studying the cartography, language and history of China, and becoming the superior of the mission at Hang-Tcheou; after that he parted back to Europe to work on his atlas. After a few years he made his way back to China until his death. His fame and the respect gained were partially due to his use of the Chinese cartography available at the time, thus not only relying on European maps but on local maps as well. Death would find him in China in 1661. Even today, in China, he is arguably the most regarded missionary to have ever stepped foot in that country, and has been called "the first to study the history and geography of China with rigorous scientific objectivity; the extend of his knowledge of the Chinese culture, the accuracy of his investigations, the depth of his understanding of things Chinese are examples for the modern sinologists" (Prof. Ma Yong, Chinese Academy of Social Sciences). Palau, 156356.

        Considerazioni ed esperienze intorno al creduto cervello di bue impietrito; Considerazioni ed esperienze intorno all generazione de’vermi nel corpo umano...; WITH AN EXCELLENT ASSOCIATION

      Nella stamperia del Seminario, Each work with separate title. With 14 folding plates (10 in the first volume, 4 in the second volume). Contemporary vellum in fine condition; from the library of Antonio Pacchioni (1665-1726), famous anatomist and physician. First editions of Vallisnieri's first two books. In the first work, the author describes the brain of an ox, which supposedly contained some curious stones, petrified during the lifetime of the animal. However, he denies that the mass found in the animal's head is actually its brain. We can't tell you exactly what it turned out to be; you have to read the book. The second work is an important treatise in parasitology, with observations on parasites in the human body. He proved that these parasites were not due to spontaneous generation, as then frequently believed, but grew from eggs.& & Vallisnieri (1661-1730), the famous pupil of Malpighi, was noted as a physician, professor of medicine at the University of Padua, and as a scientific investigator. He wrote extensively on embryology, biology, natural history and geology, and did fundamental research in the fields of helminthology and entomology. & & Pacchioni (1665-1726), a pupil of Malpighi, was a successful physician in Rome and head doctor at the Hospital of San Giovanni in Laterano. He collaborated with Lancisi on the explanatory text of Eustachi's Tabulae anatomicae, but is best known for his Dissertatio epistolaris de glandulis conglobatis durae meningis humane (Rome, 1705) which describes the arachnoidal granulations and the slight depressions produced by the arachnoid tissue under the dura. Pacchioni's bodies and Pacchioni's depressions were coined from his discoveries.&

        Physico-Mathesis de Lumine, Coloribus, et Iride

      Added title-page with a large engraved vignette & woodcut diagrams in the text. Both titles printed in red & black. 11 p.l. (including the added title-page), 535 pp., 8 leaves. 4to, cont. calf (rebacked & corners repaired, some faint dampstains). Bologna: Heirs of V. Benati, 1665. First edition, the copy of William Molyneux (1656-98), astronomer, founder of the Dublin Philosophical Society, and author of the first treatise on optics in English (for more on Molyneux, see D.S.B., IX, pp. 464-66). This is Grimaldi's only book; in it he describes the discovery of optical diffraction. This is perhaps the rarest of all great optical books, especially in such good condition, and marks the first scientific attempt to establish a comprehensive wave theory of light. The diffraction experiments which Grimaldi describes here show "that a new mode of transmission of light had been discovered and that this mode contradicts the notion of an exclusively rectilinear passage of light. Diffraction thus gave prima facie evidence for a fluid nature of light. The name 'diffraction' comes from the loss of uniformity observed in the flow of a stream of water as it 'splits apart' around a slender obstacle placed in its path."-D.S.B., V, p. 544. Grimaldi repeatedly states that colors are not something different from light but are modifications of light produced by the fine structure of the bodies which reflect it, and probably consisting of an alteration in the type of motion and in the velocity of the light. The different colors are produced when the eye is stimulated by light oscillations whose velocities differ. All these views were of fundamental importance for the subsequent development of optics. Newton was aware of Grimaldi's work, though only secondhand. The Englishman's great contribution to the knowledge of diffraction is his set of careful measurements which made clear the periodic nature of the phenomenon. With the signature of William Molyneux on the second title-page. Bookplate of E.N. da C. Andrade. Very good copy and preserved in a slipcase. ❧ Albert, Norton, & Hurtes, Source Book of Ophthalmology, 919-contains "Grimaldi's work on the discovery of the diffraction (Newton's inflexion) of light...considered a classic in the history of optics, this work makes the first scientific attempt to establish the wave theory." Kemp, The Science of Art, p. 285. .

The Theodosian Code is an official compilation of all laws enacted since the reign of Constantine that was commissioned by Emperor Theodosius II in 429 CE. Completed in 438 CE, and ratified that year by the senate, it was the standard legal text of the empire, one that superseded all earlier codes. It would later exert enormous influence on the barbarians who assumed control of the Western Empire. The Visigoths, Ostrogoths, Franks, Lombards and Burgundians used it as the basis for their legal codes. Godefroy's edition, which includes extensive commentary, was the first modern edition of the Codex. It remains a masterpiece of scholarship and erudition.

      Amsterdam: Covens and Mortier. Uncolored engraving. Image measures 20.25" x 27.5". This rare reference engraving illustrates principal terms of geometry, fortification, and artillery for use in battle during the mid-18th century. The top left section shows geometrical shapes and tools of mathematical drafting. The top center and right sections show plans and schemata for the construction and layout of fortifications. At the left and right center of the engraving are illustrations of battle artillery, and in the middle of the sections, more plans for the situation and organization of forts. At the bottom, surrounding the cartouche, are representations of cannons and other firearms. The title is given in French above the map and in Dutch in a decorative title cartouche at the bottom crowned with two eagles. The print is from a Dutch edition of De L'Isle's work entitled "Atlas Nouveau, Contenant Toutes Les Parties Du Monde, Ou sont exactement Remarquées les Empires, Monarchies, Royaumes, Etats, Republiques &c." It is in very good condition with some toning. Some chips and small tears to the margin not affecting the image. Small crease to lower right corner. The Amsterdam publishing firm of Covens and Mortier (1665-c. 1862) was established by Cornelius Mortier and Jean Covens. Together, the two republished the works of great 17th and early 18th century Dutch and French cartographers such as De L'Isle, Allard, Jansson, De Wit, and Ottens. The firm quickly grew into one of the largest and most prolific Dutch publishing outfits of the 18th century and enjoyed a long and prolific life under a variety of names.

        Les tragédies et comédies de Th. Corneille

      No place [Amsterdam]: Suivant la copie imprimée a Paris [Abraham Wolfgang], [1665]. 12mo (13.4 cm, 5.25"). Six of seven parts in one. Lacking general t.-p. and first part. Engr. t.-p., [3] ff., 78 pp.; engr. t.-p., [4] ff., 76 pp.; engr. t.-p., [5] ff., 73, [1] pp.; engr. t.-p., [1] f., 70 pp.; engr. t.-p., [4] ff., 73, [3] pp.; engr. t.-p., [3] ff., 82 pp. French dramatist Thomas Corneille (1625–1709) lived in the shadow of his playwright brother Pierre (1606–84), the "Great Corneille"; however Thomas wrote over forty plays, and his Timocrate, included here, had the longest recorded run (80 nights) of any play in the seventeenth century! These six comedies and tragedies — Les illustres ennemis, comedie; Berenice, tragedie; Timocrate, tragedie; La mort de l'empereur commode, tragedie; Darius, tragedie; and Le charme de la voix, comedie — comprise six of the seven plays making up the second volume only of a five-volume set, Les tragédies et comédies de Th. Corneille, printed => for the Elzevirs by Abraham Wolfgang in Holland, 1665–78. Six separate title-pages with the "Quaerendo" printer's mark and => six particularly lively, charming added engraved title-pages precede the six plays, each dated 1662 (the first editions date to 1656–59). This copy is lacking the general title-page dated 1665 and the first play, Le geôlier de soy-mesme (1662); the text, in French, is decorated with woodcut initials, head- and tailpieces, and sparse woodcuts of animals. Rare: Searches of NUC-Pre1956 and WorldCat find the five-volume set Les tragédies et comédies at just one U.S. institution (Univ. of Chicago), and => each play individually in up to three U.S. locations only. Provenance: Inked monogram of Edwin Wolf II on front pastedown, and inscriptions of John Bridgman, Esq., on rear endpaper and pastedown. => A charming old sketch of a woman with a lute graces the front pastedown; a bit of much sketchier sketching marks the rear one. Willems, Supplement, 1727 (b); Graesse, II, 268. Not in Goldsmid. Contemporary vellum with yapp fore-edges; joints and front hinge repaired, new fly-leaf added. Lacking general title-page and first part, as above. Light soiling to edges with occasional very minor foxing or a light stain, two short marginal tears, one leaf with a corner-tip lost — a nice copy.

Pietro della Valle (1586-1652) was an Italian polymath, adventurer and traveller who, at his friend, Mario Schipano's suggestion, travelled through Turkey, the Holy Land and beyond to Persia and India. Although both della Valle and Roe were clearly captivated by the Moghul Empire and its courts, their accounts differ; Della Valle's writing has detailed descriptions of music, dance and food, whereas Roe, on a trade mission leaves England with 6 ships and is a slightly more formal traveller; his account contains descriptions of his voyage, religion, society, customs and governance, Together, in this extraordinary book, della Vale and Roe provide an extraordinary view from a European travellers perspective, of the distant world of the east during the Moghul Empire. & Wing V48A

        The Causes and Cure of the Pestilence or, A Brief Collection of those Provoking Sins, Recorded in the Holy Scriptures, for which the Lord hath Usually sent the Sore destroying Pestilence or Plague among a People. Together with Some Special Spiritual Receipts and Preservatives Against the Further Encrease of this Pestilential Disease

      London: London - Unknown, 1665 Book. Good. Half-Leather. 1st Edition. [16] pp 1-255 [1] The first and only edition of Thomas Rosewell's Presbyterian response to the horrors of the 1665 outbreak of the plague in London in which he suggests that the pestilence was God's retribution for the sins of the English ungodly. The octavo volume has been crudely recased in quarter sheep over marbled boards, probably in the eighteenth century, with the original sheep binding cut away and reattached to marbled boards which appear to have been borrowed from another book. Both the marbled boards and leather spine are very worn although an early morocco spine label is retained. Internally the text is complete (A-R8) and extensively browned, especially the first and last few gatherings. A triangle at the lower corner of the title page (half inch along by one inch up foreedge) is nearly detached. Internally the hinges are open. Rosewell's Causes and Cure of the Pestilence is an uncommon work with just one copy recorded at auction in the last thirty years. ESTC R41076.

Grande vignetta calcografica al frontespizio con stemma del Duca di Baviera, dedicatario dell'opera. Timbri di possesso di Pio Emmanuelli. Piena pergamena moderna, tassello recante titolo e autore al dorso. Tagli spruzzati di rosso.Rara prima edizione in cui l'autore, rifiutando la teoria copernicana, abbraccia apertamente il sistema geocentrico tychonico. Giovambattista Riccioli, il più rinomato tra gli astronomi gesuiti, compose l'Astronomia Reformata come complemento e conclusione della sua altra celebre opera astronomica del 1651, l'Almagestum novum. "Riccioli made a number of significant astronomical measurements in an effort to expand and refine existing data? He observed the topography of the moon and, in concert with Grimaldi, introduced some of the nomenclature that is still used to describe lunar features. Riccioli described sunspots, compiled star catalogues, and recorded his observation of a double star; he also noted the colored bands parallel to the equator of Jupiter and made observations of Saturn that, if he had had better instruments, might had led him to recognize its rings" (L. Campedelli in DSB XI, 411). Le mappe lunari sono state disegnate da Francesco Maria Grimaldi.Buon esemplare, con leggero ma costante alone di umidità. Minimi lavori di tarlo alle prime due carte. Tracce di sporco superficiale al verso dell'ultima carta.De Backer-Sommervogel VI, 1801, 9; Riccardi I, 373.

Prima Edizione di uno dei più curiosi trattati sulle scritture segrete e sulle loro numerose combinazioni. La tecnica di nascondere un messaggio segreto all?interno di un testo fu teorizzata verso il 1500 dall?abate Tritemio che nella sua ?Steganographia? illustrava la maniera di inviare messaggi tramite l?uso di linguaggi magici. Dopo Tritemio anche Caspar Schott si occupò di steganografia. Nella ?Schola Steganographica? l?autore spiega, tra le altre cose, come occultare un testo in uno spartito musicale facendo corrispondere ogni nota ad una lettera. Propone, inoltre una variante del codice Ave Maria descritto da Tritemio. Cfr: Caillet, III, 10007; Rosenthal, Bibliotheca Magica Casanatense, 1105; Bibliotheca Esoterica, 4442; Poggendorff, vol.

        IL DECAMERON di Messer Giovanni Boccacci, Cittadino Fiorentino. Sì come lo diedero alle Stampe gli SS.ri Giunti l'Anno 1527.

      Volume in 16º legato in mezza pelle, titolo al tassello al dorso ornato, sguardie, bianca, frontespizio, prefazione dello stampatore, (24), 744 pp.. Bella e curata edizione delle novelle arcinote del Boccaccio, assai apprezzata per la correttezza del testo, stampata sulla famosa ventisettana, in bel carattere romano tondo. La carta è forte e frusciante, seppur in qualche pagina (le ultime dieci carte) persista una sporadita brunitura, la bella impaginazione e la chiarezza dell'impressione fanno sì che malgrado la piccolezza del carattere la lettura sia facile e scorrevole, arricchita da bei capilettera ornati. Menzionata ed apprezzata in molte bibliografie, l'opera si presenta in bello stato, con i soli pochi arrossamenti citati dovuti al tipo di carta. Preziosa edizione secentesca difficilmente reperibile in questo stato.

        Vetus Testamentum ex versione LXX interpretum; Novum Testamentum

      Cambridge, J.Field 1665.. The OT (Greek Septuagint version) in 2 vols, [20], 755, 516 p., the NT (original Greek) uniform, 419 p., with at the end a Scottish psalter (in English), Edinburgh, Evan Taylor, 1650, 72pp., together 3 vols, 12mo, in a fine contemporary SOMBRE BINDING of black morocco, blind-tooled, edges a little rubbed, but in very nice condition. Wing B2443=Aldis 1421. Probably the second Septuagint printed in England..It was John Pearson's preface to this edition that led Bentley to say of him, 'The very dust of his writings is gold.' Sombre bindings are usually found on devotional works, but always in my experience on single volumes: it is a mark of piety or mourning as you carry it around. I have never seen another example on books bound as a set. This copy has the ownership inscr. of the bibliographer W.W.Greg.

      Livii Patavini librum primum exercitationes politicæ VII. Editio secunda auctior et emendatior. Uppsala, Henricus Curio, 1665. 4:o. (4),+ 72, 71-78, 83-157,+ (1) s. Brunfläckig och med enstaka fuktfläckar, något värre på sid. 39-48. Något nött samtida halvpergamentband med marmorerade pärmpapper. Collijn sp. 830. Fant 22. Första bokupplagan. Tidigare utgiven i en serie av sju dissertationer med titeln, "Exercitationum politicarum in Titum Livium Patavinum", Uppsala 1656-65 (Lidén I, 408). Denna avhandlingsserie om de romerska kungarna, efter Livius första bok, attackerades av professorn i juridik, Petrus Gavelius. Han anklagade Schefferus för att "förföra ungdomen", ha prisat den hedniske Romulus och att ha predikat att det är rätt att döda kungar, skända jungfrur m.m., och hotade med dödsstraff för blasfemi och majestätsbrott. Kombattanterna drog tvisten inför höga fora och vädjade till kungen, där den avgjordes till Gavelius nackdel (Runeby s. 459ff)
