GOOS, Pieter
Amsterdam, 1669. unbound. Sea chart. Uncolored copperplate engraving. Image measures 17.5" x 21.5". This rare sea chart by Pieter Goos shows the coasts of Russia and Finland with north oriented to the right. The islands of Spitsbergen and the tip of Novaya Zemlya are also visible. An inset map, oriented with north to the lower right, shows the River Dvina as it flows through the city of Arkhangelsk (Archangel), the chief seaport of Russia at the time. In addition to ports, the map includes topographical features, soundings, sand bars, fishing banks and navigational hazards. Around Spitsbergen particularly are detailed demarcations of safe anchorage points and whaling stations from when the islands were used as a whaling base. The map also features rhumb lines, scales, and embellished compass roses. A figured title cartouche adorned with scrollwork and feathers shows inhabitants and wildlife of the region. 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 slight foxing, soiling, and off-setting, particularly of the cartouche. Very few chips and tears. Pieter Goos (1616-75) 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.

Frontespizio, 6 pagine non numerate;" 272-176 pagine numerate (la prima numerazione parte  da pagina 3, secondo Melzi mancherebbe un occhiello ma potrebbe essere un errore di numerazione). L'autore fu un celebre libellista italiano, cattolico convertito al protestantesimo che Curzio Malaparte ebbe a definire ""il più grande pamphlétaire italiano"". Il volume è costituito da due opere di cui la prima in due parti:  da pagina 9 a 108 per il Puttanismo Romano"; da pagina 109 a 272 per il Dialogo tra Pasquino e Morforio; seguono 176 pagine per Il Nuovo Parlatorio delle Monache. La prima e la seconda parte, Il Puttanismo Romano e il Dialogo, vennero pubblicate in forma anonima nel 1688.

GOOS, Pieter
Jacques & Gasper Anthoine, Amsterdam 1669 - This rare sea chart by Pieter Goos shows the western Cape of South Africa with north oriented to the left. The map extends roughly from Cabo Negro in Angola to the Cape of Good Hope, covering an area of trade waters that the Dutch East India Company used heavily in this period. Two insets show the Cape, including Table Mountain, and Vlees Bay to the east of the Cape. Uncommon for Goos' maps, the insets feature small illustrations of native animals: a pair of birds in Vlees Bay, and an ostrich, hyena, and monkey, among others, around the Cape. Mountains rendered pictorally. In addition to ports, the map includes topographical features, soundings, sand bars, fishing banks and navigational hazards. It also features rhumb lines, scales, two decorative ships, and embellished compass roses, one in the main map and one in the inset. Also uncommon for Goos, there is no title cartouche, but instead a title done in fine calligraphy. 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 slight foxing, soiling, and off-setting. Small chips in the margins, not affecting the image.

BERCHEM, Nicolaes
Paris: Elzevier, 1669. Map. Engraving. Image measures 16.5" x 21.5". This map of Jerusalem appeared in La Sainte Bible, a French edition of the Bible published in 1669. The center plan was likely based on the model of Nicolas Visscher and shows the city's prominent landmarks, including the City of David and Solomon's Temple. These landmarks are labeled in accordance with keys in the upper corners which are printed on scrolls and supported by cherubs. A grid laid over the city is distorted to show its various hills and elevations. Surrounding the plan are various vignettes and illustrations by Berchem, including an elevation of the Temple of Solomon, trompe-l'oeil statues in niches, and allegorical scenes related to the Holy Land and its history. Both the plan and the illustrations are finely engraved and lend the map a fascinating level of intricacy. The map is in very good condition with no tears and only a very minor chip to the lower margin, not affecting the image. Narrow margins. Dark impression on crisp, bright paper. Nicolaes Berchem (1620-1683) was a painter of the Dutch Golden Age known for his pastoral landscapes. After studying with Cornelis van Poelenburgh and Jan van Goyen, well-known Dutch landscape painters, Berchem adopted a classicizing style which he applied to the Italian countryside, producing evocative, sun-bathed scenes which found great popularity in Holland. It was likely his skill as an artist that led the Elzevier publishing house to commission him to do the maps and decoration of their Sainte Bible. This lovely map is a fine collector& … [Click Below for Full Description]

MONTANUS, Arnoldus.
Amsterdam, Jacob Meurs, 1669.Folio. Contemporary blind-tooled calf, spine with raised bands. With title-page printed in red and black, fine engraved allegorical frontispiece, large folding map, 24 folding or double-page plates (some margins restored; one plate damaged on the fold) and 71 half-page engravings in the text. (8),456,(16) pp.First and only Dutch edition. - A sumptuously illustrated account of the two Dutch missions of 1649 and 1661 to the shogun's court. After the expulsion of all foreigners from Japan, the Dutch were allowed to settle on the man-made island of Deshima in the bay of Nagasaki. The Dutch trading center there served not only commercial ends, but it was also Japan's window on the western world. In addition, it provided other countries with an avenue of approach to Japan. Thus, from 1637 to 1854, the Dutch alone were able to retain their trading rights. During this period they were able to exercise their mediating functions for other nations, as they did in preparing the way for America's admiral Perry. 'Some new information along with a lot of old material about Japan became available in 1669 with the publication of Montanus' Gedenkwaerdige gesantschappen. Ostensibly a description of several VOC embassies to the shogun's court after 1640, it is in fact an encyclopedia of things Japanese' (Lach, Asia in the making of Europe, III, p.488). With o.a. fine large views of Tokyo, Osaka and Kyoto. Including also a description of Batavia with double-page plan after Janssonius (see Brommer, Batavia, Bat K15).

Complectens omnes libros Novi Testamenti &Epistolas universas et Apocalypsin. Matthew Poole [Pole] (c. 1624-1679) was a biblical commentator, known for authoring many controversial publications. The great work of Poole's life was the Synopsis criticorum aliorumque sacrae scripturae interpretum, a synopsis of the critical labours of biblical commentators. He commenced his studies for the project in 1666, and took ten years to complete it. During this time he would rise at three or four in the morning, take a raw egg at eight or nine, and another at twelve, and continue at his studies until late in the afternoon. The prospectus for the Synopsis bore the names of eight bishops and five continental scholars, besides other divines. Simon Patrick, Tillotson, and Stillingfleet, with four laymen, acted as trustees of the funds raised by subscription for the project. A royal patent for the work was granted on 14 October 1667. Four thousand copies were printed, and sold relatively quickly. The work constituted an important compendium of biblical commentary and exegesis, condensing into brief notes a great deal of study.

Sanson, Nicholas and Guillaume:
Paris: Chez Pierre Mariette, 1669.. Copper-engraved map. Sheet size: 16 5/8 x 23 1/3 inches. In very good condition. The most important French map of North America of its generation, produced by the country's most esteemed family of cartographers. This very influential map was the official successor to Nicolas Sanson's 1650 map of North America. When Nicolas Sanson, regarded as the father of the renaissance of cartography under Louis XIV, died in July 1667, he left his flourishing business under the charge of his eldest son, Guillaume. The younger Sanson continued his father's partnership with the Mariette family, who were prominent Parisian printers. Guillaume was determined to publish a new, updated edition of his father's CARTES GENERALES DE TOUTES PARTIES DU MONDE, the first French general atlas, originally published in 1657. The map of North America that appeared in the atlas, although masterful, was now considered to be geographically outdated. The present map, which appeared in the second edition of the atlas, featured updated taxonomy, and is geographically based on Nicolas Sanson's wall map of 1666 (of which only two copies survive). While California is shown to be an island, in line with popular perception, unlike the map from 1650, it no longer attempts to build a geographical mythology in the place of the Pacific Northwest, which was then totally unknown. Appropriately, the magnificent baroque title cartouche, which features swags and ribbons held aloft by putti, has been placed to fill this enigmatic space. The map proved to be highly succes … [Click Below for Full Description]

WEBB, John
London: for Nath. Brook,, 1669. Small octavo (165 × 103 mm). Later, probably 18th-century, half calf, smooth spine, green morocco label, double gilt rules, sometime rebacked with original spine laid down, corners repaired. Large folding engraved map of China (central fold reinforced on verso), title printed in red and black, with the errata leaf at end but without final blank. Contemporary ink signature of N. White on title, other ink inscriptions and notes on front free endpapers. Rubbed, some wear to board edges, a little dampstaining at foot towards end, some light browning, still a very good copy. First edition, an influential treatise proposing Chinese as the original language, and one of the earliest books in English discussing Chinese culture in any depth. The architect John Webb, a pupil of Inigo Jones, argued that Noah could be identified with the legendary king Yao; that he had withdrawn from the tribes whose languages were confounded at Babel long before that point in biblical history, and that he had built the Ark in China, landed it there, and bequeathed to China the language spoken by Adam, preserved to Webb's day in modern China as the language of the court. Webb's view of Chinese script was strongly influenced by not only Semedo, but also the Jesuit polymath and hermeticist Athanasius Kircher. Webb was also inspired by John Wilkins's recent publication on artificial language, arguing that Wilkins, whether knowingly or not, had based the idea of his artificial language on Chinese. Webb's proposed harmonisation of world history was taken seriou … [Click Below for Full Description]

SANSON, Nicholas & Guillaume SANSON (d. 1703)
Paris: Chez Pierre Mariette, 1669. Copper-engraved map, period hand colouring in outline. 18 x 24 inches. The most important French map of North America of its generation, produced by the country's most esteemed family of cartographers This very influential map was the official successor to Nicolas Sanson's 1650 map of North America. When Nicolas Sanson, regarded as the father of the renaissance of cartography under Louis XIV, died in July, 1667, he left his flourishing business under the charge of his eldest son Guillaume. The younger Sanson continued his father's partnership with the Mariette family, who were prominent Parisian printers. Guillame was determined to publish a new, updated edition of his father's Cartes Generales de toutes parties du Monde, the first French general atlas, originally published in 1657. The map of North America that appeared in the atlas, although masterful, was now considered to be geographically outdated. The present map, which appeared in the second edition of the atlas, featured updated toponymy, and is geographically based on Nicolas Sanson's wall map of 1666 (of which only two copies survive). While California is shown to be an island, in line with popular perception, unlike the map from 1650, it no longer attempts to build a geographical mythology in the place of the Pacific Northwest, which was then totally unknown. Appropriately the magnificent baroque title cartouche, which features swags and ribbons held aloft by putti, has been placed to fill this enigmatic space. Cartographically the map appears to be based on … [Click Below for Full Description]

STENO, Nicolaus
Engraved arms of the Grand Duke of Tuscany on title, a large folding engraved plate, & a folding sheet with descriptive letterpress. Title in red & black. 1 p.l., 78 pp., 1 leaf. 4to, modern panelled calf. Florence: ex Typographia sub signo Stellae, 1669. First edition of a fundamental work for the modern sciences of geology, crystallography, and palaeontology. In this book, Steno "described the composition of the earth's crust in Tuscany and a famous diagram in his book shows six successive types of stratification: the first attempt ever made to represent geological sections. This was a sequence which he believed would be found all over the world. He explained the true origin of fossils found in the earth as being remains of once living things and he discriminated between the volcanic, chemical and mechanical modes of the origin of the rocks. He was the first clearly to recognize that the strata of the earth's crust contain the records of a chronological sequence of events from which the history of the earth can be reconstructed. He attempted to find the principles of stratigraphy...He deduced that these changes in the original position of the strata are the real causes of the unevenness of the earth's surface. This was in direct contradiction to the accepted belief that mountains had existed ever since the beginning of things or had simply grown."-Printing & the Mind of Man 151. "This work also contains the first formulated crystallography and, of the constancy of interfacial angles of crystals of quartz, a study basic to mineralogy."-Dibner, Heralds of Scienc … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bologna, Monti, 1669.In-4. Legatura del '900 in mezza pergamena con angoli. Stemma del Cardinale Leopoldo de' Medici inc. in rame sul frontespizio ed alcune illustrazioni inc. in legno n.t. (8), 79 pp.; poche e lievi arrossature. Assai rara edizione originale ed unica di alcuni opuscoli scientifici del più apprezzato allievo e collaboratore di Galileo, e insegnante del Torricelli e del Borelli. Il primo (pp. 1-37) si occupa di fenomeni della vista: spiega la percezione del movimento ed i motivi di molte illusioni ottiche, parla della camera oscura, l'inversione delle immagini sulla retina, la cataratta ecc. Sono anche particolarmente interessanti le Due lettere al Galileo (pp.47-79) in cui espone le sue esperienze sulla trasmissione del calore. E' sorprendente che questi notevoli testi non siano mai stati ristampati! Riccardi I, 291. Gamba 1864. DSB II, 115. Very rare first (and only) edition of a collection of essays on optics and on heat by the most distinguished student and colleague of Galileo. It is surprising that they have never been reprinted. Coat of arms on title and some woodcuts in the text. 20th century half vellum; minor light foxing.

Ritratto di Giacomo Zabarella e busto di Tito Livio.Jacopo (o Giacomo) Zabarella (Padova, 5 settembre 1533 ? Padova, 15 ottobre 1589) è stato un filosofo italiano. Primogenito di un?antica e nobile famiglia, ereditò dal padre Giulio il titolo di conte palatino. Studiò all?Università di Padova, dove fu allievo di Francesco Robortello, Bernardino Tomitano e Marcantonio e? Passeri, laureandosi nel 1553. Nel 1563 ottenne la cattedra di logica nello Studio padovano, succedendo al Tomitano e, successivamente, nel 1568, quella di filosofia naturale, che tenne fino alla morte. Declinò l?invito del re Stefano Báthory di insegnare in Polonia, ma gli dedicò il suo scritto più importante, l? Opera logica, stampata a Venezia nel 1578. Nel 1580 furono pubblicate a Padova le sue Tabulae logicae, e nel 1582, a Venezia, il suo commento agli Analitici II di Aristotele. In risposta alle critiche mosse alla sua Opera logica dai suoi colleghi d?Università, Francesco Piccolomini e Bernardino Petrella, pubblicò a Padova, nel 1584, la De doctrinae ordine apologia. Nel 1586 e nel 1590 apparvero rispettivamente le sue due ultime opere, la De naturalis scientiae constitutione e i De rebus naturalibus; ancora postumi comparvero i suoi commenti incompiuti alla Fisica e al De anima di Aristotele.

MORISON, R.
London, typis Tho. Roycroft, 1669. 2 parts (bound in one). 8vo (272 x 115mm). pp. (24), 1-347, (11), 351-499, (5). Contemporary blind boards, spine with old lettering. First edition and the first work published by this famous Scottish botanist. The first part is a catalogue of plants growing in the Duc d'Orleans' botanical garden at Blois. "He was, among other things, the superintendent of the gardens at Blois for the Duc d'Orleans, and became the first Professor of Botany at Oxford in 1669. Later he was employed by Charles II of England to help with the laying out of St.James Park, and held the titles of Royal Physician and Royal Botanist" (Hunt 313). The catalogue consists of an alphabetical list of the Royal garden at Blois and was for a large part compiled by Abel Brunyer, Morison's colleague. The botanical garden created by Gaston d'Orléans at Blois was the most important French botanical garden in the 17th century. Nicolas Robert and Daniel Rabel were commissioned by the Duc d'Orleans to paint its plants. These were the first 'vélins' of the great 'Collections des vélins', now in the Paris Natural History Museum. The second part, 'Hallucinationes', is a list of mistakes made by Gaspard Bauhin in his 'Pinax' 1623, with Morison's corrections, followed by critisism ('Animadversiones') of Jean Bauhin's 'Historia plantarum universalis' (1650, 1651). "The 'Praeludia' concludes with a dialogue between the author, as Botanographus Regius, and a Fellow of the Royal Society, on the classification of plants. Morison alludes in this dialogue, in a very critical manner, to a recen … [Click Below for Full Description]

Paris, C. Lambin, 1669. 4to. (22 x 16cm). pp. (8), 152, with 1 engraved portrait. Contemporary calf, covers with large floral gilt centrepiece within broad gilt borders, richly floral gilt spine with 5 raised bands and gilt lettering (corners slightly rubbed). Sinkankas 593; Duveen 71. Second, enlarged edition (the first appeared in 1661) of this rare work on precious stones and pearls found in the East- and West-Indies, written by a 'Marchand Orphevre' in Paris. Both editions are dedicated to 'à Mademoiselle' (i.e. Anne Marie Louise d'Orléans) with her engraved portrait, which is more delicately executed (by N. Larnessin) in the above edition. Moreover the second edition is more interesting and wanted because of the additional chapters: Du prix des Diamans, Du prix des Perles, Contre les chercheurs de la pierre philosophale & souffleurs d'Arquemie, Raisons contre les cherchevrs de la Pierre Philosophale & souffleurs d'Alquemie. Et ne sera pas mal à propos de parler de Nicolas Flamel sur ce sujet. A large chapter is devoted to pearls and pearl fishing. The Persian Gulf is given as one of the main locations of pearl fishing 'Dans le Golfe Persique, principalement aux environs de l'Isle d'Ormus' (pages 65-90). Several locations are mentioned in the Gulf. "Very early, and important treatise on gemstones, gold & silver, but with by far more space devoted to gemstones. The first chapter attempts to reconcile differing views of various writers, as cited by Berquem, on the origin of gemstones and precious metals, with following chapters taking up the principal gemstones, and some … [Click Below for Full Description]
