        Paskaarte om Achter Yrlandt om te Zeylen van Hitlant tot aen Heijbat

      Jacques & Gasper Anthoine, Amsterdam 1669 - Sea chart. Uncolored copperplate engraving. Image measures 19 7/8" x 22 3/4" This handsome sea chart by Pieter Goos depicts Ireland in its entirety, with the north oriented to the right. The chart also extends to parts of Scotland, England, and France. Also prominently featured are rhumb lines, scales, embellished tall ships, an elegant cartouche, and the harp crest for Ireland and the lion crest for Scotland. 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 some foxing, soiling, and off-setting. Minor chips along border. Bottom of the center seam is separated. 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 classic example of Goos' high quality, visually appealing sea charts.

        Paskaerte van’t Weftelyckste der Middelandsche Zee

      Amsterdam 1669 - Carta nautica della parte occidentale del Mediterraneo, che comprende la penisola. Figlio del cartografo ed incisore Abraham Goos, Pieter, riprese ed ingrandì l’attività del padre e divenne uno degli incisori più famosi di carte nautiche in attività ad Amsterdam durante la metà del XVII secolo. C osì come Colom, Doncker e Jacobsz, anche Goos pubblicò un atlante nautico, lo Zee-Spiegel, basandolo sulle lastre ottenute da Jacobsz. Questo atlante è stato poi ristampato in numerose edizioni e in diverse lingue, con titoli molto conosciuti all’epoca. Oltre a pubblicare il suo Zee-Spiegel nelle classiche I e II parte (Europa e Coste atlantiche) e parte III (Mediterraneo), diede inizio ad una nuova consuetudine, pubblicando le parti IV e V, relative a carte e indicazioni marinare per le coste delle Indie Occidentali e dell’Africa Occidentale. Incisione in rame, coloritura coeva dei contorni, lievi abrasioni e ossidazioni, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. Sea chart of the western part of the Mediterranean Sea, including the peninsula. Pieter was the son of Abraham Goos, cartographer and engraver; he enlarged his father’s business and became one of the most famous engraver of sea charts in Amsterdam of the XVII century. Like Colom, Doncker and Jacobsz, he published a sea atlas, the Zee-Spiegel, deriving his work from the plates he was given by Jacobsz. The atlas has been then reissued in different editions and languages, and it was very famous among its contemporaries. Apart from publishing his Zee-Spiegel in the classical part I and II (Europe and Atlantic Coasts) and III (Mediterranean), he started a new tradition, publishing also parts IV and V, depicting routes for West Indies and West Africa. Copperplate, contemporary colour on the outlines, small abrasions, in general in good condition. Koeman IV, Goos 33-39 Dimensioni 520 400mm

        A Continuation of New Experiments Physico-Mechanical, Touching the Spring and Weight of the Air, and their effects. The I. Part

      Eight folding engraved plates. 11 p.l., 198 pp., 6 leaves. 4to, cont. panelled calf (foot of one spine & one corner worn, upper joints cracking at foot). Oxford: Printed by H. Hall for R. Davis, 1669. [bound with]: -. A Continuation of New Experiments Physico-Mechanical, Touching the Spring and Weight of the Air, and their effects. The Second Part… Five folding engraved plates. Title within ruled border. 10 p.l., 198 pp., 3 leaves. 4to. London: Printed by M. Flesher for R. Davis, 1682. [with]: -. New Experiments Physico-Mechanical, touching the Air… Two engraved plates (one folding). Titles within ruled borders. 8 p.l., 204 pp.; 6 p.l., 118 pp, one blank leaf; 4 p.l., 102 pp., one leaf. Three parts in one vol. 4to. London: Printed by M. Flesher for R. Davis, 1682. I. First edition. After the Spring and Weight of the Air, Boyle continued to devise experiments on air. In this first continuation, he describes the second English air-pump, constructed like the first by himself and Robert Hooke. He investigated sound, magnetic force and frictional heat in a vacuum; he also confirmed the results of Pascal's famous experiment on the Puy-de-Dôme. II. First edition in English, translated from Latin. The first description of the double air-pump, the third air-pump in England, devised and constructed by Denis Papin, who had brought it with him from France. It had the great advantage of two barrels so arranged that, as the air became exhausted, the resistance offered to the ascent of one piston was nearly balanced by the force with which it compelled the other to descend. It is clear from this book that Boyle and Papin worked together for almost four years. III. Third edition of Boyle's book on his original experiments on air, his first scientific work and the one on which his fame rests. This edition, like the second, includes his controversial tracts against Linus and Hobbes, the former provoking an attack to which Boyle wrote a defense that contained "Boyle's law," first published in the second edition. See Horblit 15 and Printing & the Mind of Man 143 for the second edition. Occasional unimportant worming but a very nice set bound in two volumes. Early signature of J. Brandreth of Trinity College, Cambridge on front free endpapers. Neville I, p. 192, has the same combination of works as are present here. ❧ Fulton 16, 18, & 15.

      1669. Nova situatione de pagamenti fiscali de carlini 42 a foco delle Provincie del Regno di Napoli & adohi de Baroni e Feudatarij dal primo di Gennaro 1669 avanti. In Napoli, nella Regia Stamperia di Egidio Longo, 1670. In 4to; 2cc.n.nn., pp.467, 1n.n. Stemma di Pietro Antonio de Aragona al frontespizio, capilettera silografati. Pergamena coeva, titolo calligrafato al dorso. La numerazione dei fuochi serviva per identificare le varie famiglie del tempo. Era descritto il capofuoco, l'età, lo stato civile, l'attività lavorativa dei vari componenti del fuoco, l'elenco delle proprietà, e il tipo di dote che avevano le donne sposate. Per ogni fuoco era stabilita una tassa e il numero dei fuochi determinava la tassa complessiva che l'Università, l'attuale Comune, riscuoteva e pagava alle finanze del Regno. Il primo ad ordinare che fosse eseguita la numerazione dei fuochi fu Alfonso I d'Aragona nel 1443 e inizialmente fu effettuata con periodicità triennale per poi divenire quindicennale dal 1507 in considerazione delle spese notevoli che comportava; nel Seicento se ne ebbero una nel 1648 e una nel 1669. Sono riportate tutte le terre, le province, i feudi e i loro proprietari, le diocesi, le arcidiocesi. Terra di Lavoro, Principato Citra e Ultra, Capitanata, Basilicata, Terra di Bari, Terra d'Otranto, Calabria, Abruzzo, Contado di Molise. Idamaria Fusco, Il Regno di Napoli nella seconda metà del Seicento: il dibattito sulla numerazione dei fuochi: "Nel Regno di Napoli di Età moderna la numerazione dei fuochi rappresenta la principale fonte in grado di fornire una visione complessiva della realtà demografica meridionale, pur presentando numerosi limiti legati alla sua natura di fonte fiscale. In particolare, lo scoppio di una gravissima epidemia di peste tra il 1656 e il 1658 metterà in crisi l'intero sistema fiscale, basato su una numerazione, quella del 1648, già ampiamente criticata dagli stessi contemporanei. Da qui l'ampio dibattito, finora poco noto, che porterà all'adozione di vari rimedi provvisori e alla pubblicazione finale della successiva numerazione del 1669."

Swammerdam's present work, which reached part 1 only, and a monograph on the mayfly are the only entomological works published by in his lifetime. However, as DSB explains, "Swammerdam's thesis about insects was fundamentally new and significant . The 1669 Historia was devoted to the overthrow of the idea of metamorphosis . The idea of metamorphosis, which Swammerdam was so determined to refute, was that of a sudden and total change from one kind of creature to another, comparable to the alchemical transmutation of a base metal into gold." Swammerdam's main claim, anti-Aristotelian in nature was that "insects are no less perfect than higher animals, and are not really different in the their modes of development." Near Fine.

"Like many astronomers in the second half of the seventeenth century, Wing, following Boulliau and Seth Ward, opted for an 'empty-focus' variant of Kepler's second law, holding that a planet moving in an elliptical orbit describes equal angles in equal times about the focus not occupied by the sun. In works published in 1651 and 1656 Wing, adopting Boulliau's method, had his elliptical orbits, including that of the moon, generated in purely geometrical fashion by circles and epicycles.In his posthumously published Astronomia Britannica, however, he discarded the epicycles in favour of a refined version of the theory proposed by Ward in the latter's Astronomia geometrica (1656), in which the elliptical orbits were assumed to be physically generated. Wing's celestial mechanics contained a mixture of Cartesian and Keplerian components, with a rotating sun and celestial vortex pushing the planets around in their orbits" (DSB XIV, p.446).

Voltaire said that, apart from Racine "it was the only time that was worthy of being the first under his brother." Voltaire said elsewhere that it was a "man who has a great reputation if he had not had a brother."

        De rampspoedige scheepvaart der Franschen naar Oostindien. Onder't beleit van de Heer Generaal Augustyn van Beaulieu, met drie Schepen, uit Normandyen.

      Amsterdam: Jan Rieuwertsz and Pieter Arentsz, 1669. Quarto, with eight engraved plates; bound in later period-style full calf, spine gilt with raised bands, ex libris of Saint Charles de Bourbon seminary on title;. First Dutch edition, and rare. This is the only separate appearance and the only illustrated edition of Beaulieu's account of his travels for the fledgling French "Compagnie des Indes Orientales".Beaulieu was a French navigator and coloniser who was appointed in 1619 to command the so-called "Fleet of Montmorency". The three ships sailed to Madagascar and Banda Atjeh via the Cape of Good Hope, but the voyage was not entirely a success, with two of the ships captured by the Dutch, keen to preserve the rights of the VOC. Undaunted, Beaulieu still petitioned for Madagascar to become a roadhouse for voyages to the East Indies, but Richelieu prevaricated, fearing provoking the Dutch. Despite Beaulieu's repeated encouragement, over the following decades Madagascar saw only desultory settlement, much of it from privateers. It was only in 1665 - a few years before the publication of this account - that the first voyage of the Compagnie des Indes Orientales carried settlers to the island; suffering under impossibly harsh conditions, the settlement petered out soon after.These French incursions were not particularly liked by the Dutch, and so it is perhaps not surprising that this Dutch translation focuses on the mishaps and disasters that plagued Beaulieu's voyage (hence rampspoedige, or "catastrophic", in the title). Designed for the Dutch popular market, it was published by the Amsterdam publishers Jan Rieuwertsz and Pieter Arentsz, who produced numerous VOC publications and other voyage accounts. As is often the case with Dutch editions of the seventeenth century, this is a beautifully illustrated book (at a time when most works in English and French often presented rather bare text). Three of the plates are wonderful depictions of ships in distress at sea, including an extraordinary image of a French ship on fire at night. Perhaps the most striking plate, however, is the scene as the French vessels first arrive in the Bay of St Augustin, showing the mariners hastening ashore to trade beads for livestock.This is the best early edition of Beaulieu's voyage, only preceded by the chapter in the second volume of Thévenot's Relation de divers voyages curieux (1664). The only earlier account of the voyage of the Fleet of Montmorency appears to be the impossibly rare Voyage faict aux Indes Orientalles by Jean Le Telier, one of Beaulieu's fellow captains.As a manuscript note and library stamp on the title-page attests, the book was donated to the library of the St Charles Borromeo Seminary in Philadelphia by one Dr Gilbert in 1876. A few scattered wormholes, some plates closely cropped (loss of number on plate facing p. 121), but a very handsome copy.

Violent pamphlet directed against the Jesuits, seeking by all rhetorical and historical ways to lower the value and role of the famous congregation. The order of the story is so completely revised in order to convince the Jesuits are the enemies of Christ and the holy religion, and their long history is only a result of intrigues and takeovers . Some chapters describe the order of actions in Japan and other foreign countries where the Jesuits set up missions.Bookplates Henri Ploughman.
