VILLE (Antoine de)
à Paris, pour la Cie des libraires du Palais, 1666, in 8°, de 8ff. 520pp. et 20ff. de table dont les 2 derniers blancs, ill. de 53 gravures sur cuivre de fortifications dont certaines se dépl., pl. veau brun moucheté époque, dos orné, bel exemplaire. Une des dernières éditions augmentées de ce fameux traité technique de fortifications. Antoine de Ville (1596-1656) fut le premier de nos ingénieurs militaires qui connut parfaitement la construction, et plusieurs détails de son système furent adoptés par Vauban. En praticien averti, il justifie ses parti-pris par des exemples tirés de ses multiples expériences, et les gravures sont remarquables. L'auteur n'a pas eu l'ambition de présenter un système novateur mais plutôt de fournir un compendium des différents systèmes modernes de fortifications. Deville se distingue par son souci de rationalisation de l'art de la guerre. Accordant une grande importance à l'économie du siège, à la logistique militaire et à l'ordre des attaques et de la défense, ses écrits seront une source d'inspiration majeure pour l'ouvrage de Vauban. ¶ Graesse VII, 321 (édit. de 1666)

GOOS, Pieter
Amsterdam, 1666. unbound. Map. Uncolored copperplate engraving. Image measures 17.5 x 21.5". This sea chart depicts the British aisles with North oriented to the right. The map extends to include the English Chanel and coastline of Normandy. In addition to port, the index also includes soundings, sand bars, fishing banks and navigational hazards. Each region is adorned with a decorative coat of arms, and embellished compass roses appear at the top and bottom of the map. This map was published in Goos' "De Zee-Atlas Ofte Water-Weereld" and remains in its original uncolored state, which allows Goos' intricate line work to shine. It is in good condition with foxing, soiling, and off-setting, but overall an attractive copy. Small tear on lower right margin not affecting the image. Pieter Goos (1616-1675) was a Dutch cartographer, engraver, publisher, printer, and print-seller based in Amsterdam. He belonged to a noted family of cartographers, headed by his father Abraham, who prepared plates for many maps published in the important atlases of the time. His pilot guide, the "Zee-Spiegel," provided some of the first charts of newly explored regions in the West Indies and Western Africa, and his "Zee-Atlas" is considered one of the best sea atlases of its time. This map is a fine example of Goos' high quality, visually appealing sea charts.

MAXWELL, James Clerk.
A fine copy of the rare first issue of the work which did for electromagnetism what Newton's Principia had done from classical mechanics. Grolier/Horblit 72; Norman 1666; PMM 355; Wheeler Gift Catalogue 1872.<br/><br/> "In 1873, Maxwell published a two-volume Treatise on Electricity and Magnetism that was destined to change the orthodox picture of physical reality. This treatise did for electromagnetism what Newton's Principia had done from classical mechanics. It not only provided the mathematical tools for the investigation and representation of the whole electromagnetic theory, but it altered the very framework of both theoretical and experimental physics. It was this work that finally displayed action-at-a-distance physics and substituted the physics of the field. <br/><br/> "Like Newton's Principia, Maxwell's Treatise did not immediately convince the scientific community. The concepts in it were strange and the mathematics was clumsy and involved. Most of the experimental basis was drawn from the researches of Michael Faraday and one of Maxwell's purposes in writing his treatise was to put Faraday's ideas into the language of mathematical physics - precisely so that orthodox physicists would be persuaded in their importance. <br/><br/> "James Clerks Maxwell's theory of the electromagnetic field is generally acknowledged as one of the outstanding intellectual achievements of the 19th century. By the mid-1890s the 4 "Maxwell's equations" were recognized as the foundation of one of the most successful theories in all of physics, taking their place as companions to Newton' … [Click Below for Full Description]

FARIA Y SOUSA, Manuel de
Lisboa,: Henrique Valente de Oliveira & A. Craesbeeck, 1666-, 1675.. Three volumes, quarto, each with an engraved ornamental title-page; a complete set with 19 engraved and woodblock folding plates (one in duplicate, for a total of 20 plates), numerous woodblock portraits throughout the text; some browning and intermittent water-staining, early ownership inscriptions on title-pages affecting paper; a very good set in attractive eighteenth-century speckled calf, spines gilt with raised bands and original black leather labels. Rare and influential history of the Portuguese empire in Asia, with rich and vibrant descriptions of ritual and customs in India, China, and Southeast Asia.Manuel Faria y Sousa (1590-1649) wrote this history in the tradition of the sixteenth-century masterpiece DÈcadas da Asia by Jo?o de Barros; Boies Penrose characterised him as 'the last writer to attempt a chronicle of the Portuguese empire in the grand manner...' (Travel and Discovery in the Renaissance, p. 283). Avid chronicler and polyglot, Faria y Sousa lived in Madrid for most of his life in the service of the Spanish Crown. Here he collected books, dispatches and manuscript materials of all kinds in preparation of his chronicle of the Portuguese empire across the globe. Accordingly, Asia Portuguesa is of significant historical value for the detailed list of works included in the third volume: 'Included in this bibliography are most of the books then in print which related to Asia, as well as manuscripts prepared by officials and missionaries in the field' (Lach and Van Kley, p.355).Like many co … [Click Below for Full Description]

First edition. *The French theologian, philosopher, and scientist Honore Fabri was born in Dauphine (c. 1607) and died in Rome in 1688. He taught philosophy and mathematics for nearly a decade at the Jesuit college at Lyons, before taking up the post of theologian of the court of the papal penitentiary in the Vatican basilica at Rome, a position he held for thirty years. Fabri wrote numerous books on a wide range of subjects, including philosophy, mathematics, physics, astronomy, and zoology. He formulated a theory of tidal phenomena based on the action of the moon, and gave the first reasonable explanation of why the sky is blue, basing his argument on dispersion of light. (Isaac Newton said that he first learned of Grimaldi's teaching of the diffraction of light from the writings of Fabri). He was also the first to give a reason for Galileo's experiment showing that bodies fall equal distances in equal time. His perceived suppor … [Click Below for Full Description]

AMBROSINI, H.
Boloniae, sumptibus Haeredum Evangelistae de Duccijs, 1666. Folio (312 x 203mm). pp. (16, incl. frontisp.) 576, (72, incl. 2 blanks), with fine allegorical engraved frontispiece showing a large garden, woodcut printer's device on title and 36 full-page woodcuts in the text. Contemporary calf, gilt decorated spine in 5 compartments. A fine copy. Only the first volume was published. A second volume on trees was never published due to the author's death. "Giancinto (Hyacintho) was director of the Botanical Gardens at Bologna from 1657-1665, following the directorship of his brother Bartolomeo. The genus Ambrosinia was named after the two brothers" (Hunt 303). The plants described in the present volume are in alphabetical order. " In seguito lo Studio bolognese conobbe ancora personaggi di grande levatura, come i fratelli Bartolomeo (1588 1657) e Giacinto (1605 1671) Ambrosini, che ressero l'Orto, in successione, dal 1620 al 1665. Sotto la loro gestione l'Orto si sviluppò notevolmente: un catalogo delle piante coltivate nel 1653 elenca circa 1500 specie diverse, una collezione certamente fra le maggiori in Europa a quel tempo, che sarebbe invidiata anche da molti orti botanici attuali. Molti anni dopo Linneo avrebbe onorato la memoria degli Ambrosini denominando una specie Ambrosinia bassii, dove il nome del genere ricorda appunto i due antichi prefetti dell'Orto..." (Univ. Bologna website). Hunt 303; Pritzel 132.

GALLON, Jean-Gaffin
Rare complete set, with the often lacking seventh volume, of this invaluable collection illustrating, with nearly 500 plates, the inventions of all the machines and instruments approved by the Academy of Sciences from its establishment in 1666 to 1735. In many ways this work can be considered the precursor to Diderot and D'Alembert's great <i>Encyclopédie</i>. The work includes the first published illustrations of Pascal's calculating machine (with five plates) together with descriptions and illustrations of calculating machines by Perrault, Lespine, De Hillerin, and De Mean. Stanitz 187; Tomash G-22 (six volume set only).<br/><br/> In 1729, the Academy commissioned the engineer Gallon (1706-75), to edit all descriptions of machines examined and approved by the Academy. Gallon's work documents the technological explosion that occurred in France in the arts, sciences, engineering, and manufacturing. New scientific instruments, clocks, textile machinery, paper-making machines, hydraulic engineering devices, steam shovels, street lights, umbrellas, and calculating machines are among the many inventions covered.. 4to, 252 x 188 mm, fine contemporary calf with richly gilt spines, fully complete with all 498 engraved plates showing 499 illustrations (see below), pp I: [4] viii [4] 215 and plates no 1-67 plates; II: [4] v [3] 192 and plates no. 68-139 (plate 105 in two parts); III: [4] v [3] 207 and plates no 140-214; IV: [4] v [3] 239 and plates no 215-295; V: [4] v [3] 173 and plates 296-360 (plate 329 in two parts); [4] v [3] 196 [36:index] and plates no 361-429; VI: [6] [viii] … [Click Below for Full Description]

BARTHOLIN, ALBERT.
Köpenhamn, typis M. Godicchenii, sumptibus P. Haubold acad. bibl., 1666. 8:o. (12),119,122-23,224-26,127-28,229-30,131-50,(1) s. Sannolikt samtida pergamentryggbd som på 1700-talet klätts i brunt stänkdekorerat papper och försetts med handskriven titeletikett. Ryggen delvis defekt, i synnerhet upp- och nedtill. Genomgående lagerfläckig. Bibliotheca danica IV:548. Thesaurus librorum danicorum 331. En ny utvidgad upplaga utkom 1699. Sista opaginerade sidan är ett "Typographus Lectoris" som är en ursäkt för att Niels Stensen inte är nämnd i bibliografin. Det saknas ofta. Bröderna Albert och Thomas Bartholin var söner till den berömda danska polyhistorn Caspar Bartholin. Arbetet färdigställdes av den äldre brodern Thomas efter att Albert dött 1663. Det är den första författarbibliografin i Norden och ett av de äldsta bibliografiska arbetena i regionen överhuvudtaget.
