HABRECHT, Isaac/STURM, J. C.
Nurnberg, 1666. * Houzeau & Lancaster 3039; Zimmer 5089 (1628 Strasbourg ed.); Poggendorff 1984. Warner, The Sky Explored, pp. 104-5.. Extremely rare German edition (a Latin edition was published the same year) of Sturm's enlargement of Habrecht's famous treatise on the making of celestial and terrestrial globes, published in 1628. The Habrecht family of clock and instrument makers were famous throughout Europe from the last quarter of the sixteenth century to the end of the seventeenth century. The author's father (also called Isaac) was responsible for making the monumental second Strasbourg clock which was one of the mechanical wonders of its time on the Continent. Isaac Habrecht (1589-1633) was a Strasbourg physician, mathematician and maker of globes. He was much influenced by Blaeu and Hondius, and his globes were highly regarded. J. C. Sturm was Habrecht's student and a scientist of vision. He organized the first scientific academy in Germany, the “Collegium Curiosum sive Experimentale” at Altdorf in 1672, and introduced the first course in experimental physics in a German university. In 1666, he undertook the task of augmenting Habrecht's original text and adding a number of folding plates. The plates include two handsome polar projections of the world, two polar stereographic celestial charts of the northern and southern constellations and ten folded engravings showing the various parts of his planiglobiums.The fourteen folded engravings, superbly executed by Jacob von der Heyden, were probably intended to be mounted and assembled to form several instruments, eac … [Click Below for Full Description]

Among the plates the famous and curious "shitting bird" or "Vogel mit dem Schopff. denn er setzt sich bei Nacht auf die Spitzen der hohen Klippen. was er alsdann von sich spritzt. und kömbt der Ambar von ihnen her"; a second plate shows a frog and a lizard; a third plate contains images of exotic, perhaps imaginary mammals.

Hardcover. 12mo - 18 x 10.5 cm.; (8) - 333 - (5) - 116 - (12) pp. Mottled brown full calf over boards with a six panel spine. Intricate gilt filligree work on the spine panels with no external lettering. Tillotson's "The Rule of Faith" is the first paginated section proceeded by a two page 'note' to Stillingfleet complimenting him on his work and explaining the need for his (Tillotson's) contribution and followed by a page of errata. This in turn is followed by Stillingfleet's work "A Reply to Mr. I. S his 3rd Appendix, Containing some Animadversions on the Book Entituled - A Rational Account of the Grounds of Protestant Religion." Following this is a six page postscript by Stillingfleet and then two pages of advertisements for other books sold by Henry Mortlock in St. Paul's Church-yard. Previous owner's name on the front paste down end paper, the front free end paper is almost detached with an inked note on the fore edge margin (not recent). Another previous owner's name is on the back free end paper and again not recent. The text is clean with very random and few pencil marginalia neatly done by the most recent owner in the first 45 pages. The foxing is minimal and confined to the surface of the text block edges which themselves are quite darkened as expected. The trimming of the text block when it was bound has left quite ample tail and fore margins yet the head margin is a tad tight with no loss of text though.

"Immediately after the Restoration he was made one of the king's chaplains, and reinstated in the possession of his prebend at Lincoln, but not of the archdeaconry of Stow, as he preferred holding his fellowship and vice-mastership in Trinity College. Widdrington was now dispossessed of the Greek professorship and Duport restored to it, but he resigned the chair the same year in favour of his pupil, Isaac Barrow. On 19 July 1660 he was by royal mandate, with many other learned divines, created D.D. at Cambridge (Kennett, p. 251). He was installed dean of Peterborough 27 July 1664. In 1668, on the death of Dr. John Howorth, master of Magdalene College, Duport was recalled to Cambridge and appointed by James, earl of Suffolk, possessor of Audley End, to fill the vacant headship. In the following year Duport was elected vice-chancellor of the unive … [Click Below for Full Description]

Uppsala, Henricus Curio, 1666. 8:o. (8),+ 192, 195-406,+ (4) s. Två träsnittsillustrationer i texten. Delvis med hoppande pagineringsföljd. Titelbladet fläckigt med små hål. Brännmärke i främre snittet och en bit in på pappret mot slutet. Hfrbd från 1700-talet, nött rygg med svart etikett och upphöjda bind. Lars Joh. Palmbergs namnteckning på titelbladet och med Gabriel Marklins stämpel. Förord och errata bundna i slutet. Collijn sp. 831. Fant 23. Lindroth II, s. 311f. Warmholtz 348. Med en hyllningshexameter av Loccenius. Ett av de första svenska konsekvent genomförda topografisk-antikvariska undersökningarna. Uppsala var dock ett känsligt ämne, inte minst mot bakgrund av Rudbecks snart publicerade Atlantica, och Schefferus arbete om Uppsala utgör startpunkten för den stora fejden mellan honom själv på ena sidan och Olof Verelius (och i bakgrunden Olof Rudbeck) på den andra om Uppsalas ålder och läge. Det gamla hednatemplet låg, påstod här Schefferus och stödde sig på bl.a. Ericus Olai, inte vid Gamla Uppsala utan inom den nuvarande staden Uppsala, och speciellt gammalt vad det inte heller, inte äldre än något före Kristi födelse

Rosende, Antonio Gonzalez de
Julian de Paredes, Madrid 1666 - Folio, half-title, frontis. portrait, title, ff. [28], pp 534 (actually 532: error in pagination), ff 12 (index). First biography of Palafox, written at the behest of the cardinal of Toledo, Moscoso y Sandoval, who had been one of Palafox's greatest friends. Fr. Gonzalez de Rosende was a franciscan friar, professor of theology at the university of Alcala de Henares, prefect of his order in Spain, and commissar of the Inquisition. Palafox y Mendoza was Bishop of Puebla, Mexico, Archbishop-elect of Mexico, Viceroy, etc., etc. One of the most important figures of colonial Mexico, Palafox (1600 - 59) was a Spaniard, abandoned as an infant, in a basket no less, but rescued and adopted into a noble family. He rose quickly to prominence, and was sent to Mexico as bishop of Puebla. There he founded, among many other accomplishments, the Biblioteca Palofoxiana, still in existence. He quickly came into conflict with the regular clergy, who had enormous power in Mexico and were a world and law to themselves. Palafox tried to bring them under the control of the secular authorities, i.e. the bishops. For a time he had the suport of the king and even the pope, until he tangled with the Jesuits, whose power was too great. He was abruptly called back to Spain and the bishopric of Osma, which was seen as a demotion, and certainly marked the end of his political power. Of notable sanctity, he received the necessary votes for beatification -- the first step to sainthood -- but Pope Pius VI suspended final decision. This work of Rosende was reprinted in 1671in … [Click Below for Full Description]

(6 ll.), 249, (2) pp. *** FIRST EDITION of this interesting contemporary analysis of the likelihood for lasting peace between France and Spain following the 1659 Peace of the Pyrenees, which ceded Roussillon to France, a symptom of the shift of European power from Spain to France. Giving a history of the long-standing enmity between France and Spain, Ribeiro de Macedo mentions French claims to Spanish territories in the Peninsula and outside it (including Rousillon and Cerdeña, pp. 54-8, and Navarre, pp. 58-66), as well as Spanish claims to French territory. A lasting peace with France would have meant that Spain could devote more effort to subduing Portugal.Ribeiro de Macedo (1618?-1680), advisor to D. Pedro II and ambassador to France and Spain, is best known for his efforts to end the economic crisis in Portugal during the second half of the seventeenth century. Defending the importance of industry to Portugal's future, Macedo outlined a plan for industrial growth and advised stimulating pri … [Click Below for Full Description]

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 sviluppo 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.

Al frontespizio, sfera armillare incisa su legno e antica annotazione di possesso. Capilettera ornati incisi in xilografia; tra le pp. 78-79, una tav. incisa ripiegata più volte. Sparse fioriture di lieve entità, ma esemplare assai bello. Edizione simile a quelle elzeviriane (e registrata dal Willems tra quelle "annexes aux Elzeviers") di questa relazione di viaggio in Inghilterra del Sorbière (Saint-Ambroix, Uzes, 1615-Parigi, 1670), impressa con il luogo fittizio di Colonia, ma quasi certamente stampata dal Wolfgang di Amsterdam; l'edizione (la seconda assoluta) è esemplata su quella precedente del 1664 del Billaine di Parigi. Nello stesso anno apparve un'altra edizione dell'opera, constante di 180 pp.; "quoi qu'en dise Brunet, ni l'une ni l'autre n'appartiennent aux presses elzeviriennes" (Willems). L'opera fornisce, con particolare enfasi sulle questioni religiose e sui nuovi progressi delle scienze, un vivace quadro dell'Inghilterra del tempo, con resoconti di visite a Hobbes (autore di cui il Sorbière aveva tradotto in franceseil "De Cive"), al matematico Willis, a Robert Boyle e ad altre illustri personalità della vita inglese di quegli anni. Da notare che il libro suscitò le ire della casa reale di Danimarca, in ragione dei passaggi concernenti il conte di Ullfeld, che aveva sposato una figlia naturale di re Cristiano IV.

Der italienische Verbundkatalog verzeichnet nur 1 Exemplar (in Spoleto) und gibt zur Datierung an: "Stampato tra il 1666 e il 1738, probabili anni di attivita del tipografo".

GOOS, Pieter
Amsterdam, 1666. Copper engraving with period outline colour. One of the finest and most beautiful 17th-century charts of the Northeast of America, from 'De Zee Atlas ofter Water-Weereld' The seventeenth century was the Golden Age of Dutch mapmaking. As the world's greatest trading nation, marine cartography was a particular specialty, and no one produced more lavish sea charts than Pieter Goos. Finely drawn and engraved, printed on top quality paper, and beautifully coloured, they were intended more for the merchant collector than the practical mariner. Goos' Zee-Atlas was the companion marine atlas of choice for Joan Blaeu's famous terrestrial atlas, the Atlas Maior. This is the general chart of New Netherland from the Zee-Atlas. It covers the Atlantic coast of America from Cape Cod to Cape Hatteras. The emphasis is on the Dutch colony of New Netherland. New Amsterdam (the future New York) is shown at the tip of Manhattan Island. Many other place names of Dutch origin appear, including 'Staten Eylandt', 'Lange Eylandt', and 'Vlysingen' (Flushing). Along the Delaware River a number of Dutch settlements are shown, including Fort Casimir, Nassau and Elsenburgh, as well as the Swedish Fort Christina. The Schuylkill River, site of the future metropolis of Philadelphia, is also located. In New England, Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket are shown with their present names, and several early English settlements, such as 'New Plymouth' are located. The delineation of the Chesapeake Bay is also quite good, with Jamestown located. The Potomac River is shown as the 'Patw … [Click Below for Full Description]
