        Fictitious Parrot

      Paris 1670 - Nicolas Robert Fictitious Parrot Paris, circa 1670 Watercolor on vellum with gold fillet 23 3/4” x 20 1/2” framed (professionally framed with a beautiful gold leaf moulding with all archival materials and uv plexiglass) Nicolas Robert (1614-1685) was one of the greatest natural history artists of the 17th century, and his work established standards combining scientific accuracy and esthetic appeal that influenced generations of artists and won the respect and patronage of the French royal family. Robert created a vast, exquisite body of work for the French Crown. Along with other artists, Robert was commissioned by Gaston d’Orleans, brother of Louis XIII, to create watercolors of the rare plants and exotic birds he had assembled in his garden at Blois and the Ménagerie at Versailles. Robert’s talent was recognized quickly as being superior to that of other artists working for the royal family, and after Gaston d’Orleans’s death, he was quickly placed under the patronage of the Sun King, Louis XIV. As a reward for the stunning works he painted for the king’s personal collection, Robert was named “Peintre Ordinaire du Roi” in 1666, a title that confirmed his continuing fame and patronage. Robert was the first significant contributor to a collection of fine watercolors on vellum that became known, collectively, as the Velins du Roi (the King’s Vellums). The watercolors Robert completed under Gaston d’Orleans and then Louis XIV for the royal collection fed the interest and provided the inspiration for the great masters of botanical and ornithological art who followed: Jean Joubert, Nicholas Marechal, Gerard van Spaendonck and, of course, Pierre-Joseph Redouté. Thus the extremely fine print work of Parisian natural historians and flower painters as late as 1825 can be traced directly back to the strength of Robert’s tradition. Probably executed for noble patrons, these stunning ornithological watercolors date from around the time of Robert’s period in the court of Louis XIV. The birds are defined with subtle modulations of delicate hues, and the simple yet monumental compositions combine flawless artistry with Robert’s characteristic attention to scientific precision. The vast majority of Robert’s watercolors are housed in public institutions, including the Musee d’Histoire Naturelle in Paris, the British Museum in London, and the Hofbibliothek in Vienna. These watercolors represent an unusual opportunity to obtain original, unique works by a highly important and exceptionally talented artist. The brilliance that made the Sun King recognize Robert as the preeminent watercolorist of his day is still evident in these pristine and charming works.

        Archiducatus Austriae Inferioris accuratissima geographica descriptio. Authore Georgio Matthaei Vissher Tyrolensi

      Vienna, 1670 - Engraved wall map on 16 sheets, extending north to south from Moravia to Stiria, and west to east from the town of Steyr to Prespurg (Bratislava), vignette views of the Danube from Vienna looking west, and the royal residence in Vienna, upper right and left respectively, and fine cartouches lower left and right, some minor loss to corners of a few sheets. Vischer's sumptuous wall map of Lower Austria. The map would set the standard for the mapping of Lower Austria for the next 50 years. It is dedicated to Leopold I (1640-1705), whose cameo along with his royal consort are depicted above an image of the Imperial Palace in Vienna. The palace would be destroyed during the Turkish siege of 1683. To the upper right corner is a view of the Danube from Vienna looking west, with a key naming the towns and castles. Below the map are two fine cartouches together with a depiction of Vischer surveying using a plane table, with a chain, compass, and notebooks by his feet. Behind him stand three horses, and an assistant who holds up the key to the map. Georg Matth?us Vischer (1628-1696) was an Austrian cartographer and clergyman. It is unclear how Vischer came to acquire his cartographic training, however, he had a sufficient reputation - by the time he became a parish priest at Leon Stein (during the 1660s) - for him to be called upon to complete a survey of Upper Austria. He was granted leave by his Bishop and began his survey work in 1667. The following year he submitted the first draft of the map, which was approved, and then engraved by Melchior Kusell. The following year the map was published and Vischer began the mapping of Lower Austria, the present map, which would be published in 1670. He would go on to publish a map of Styria, and topographical books of Lower and Upper Austria. Although his works were well received, he failed to gain all the promised remuneration from the noblemen and gentry of Austria - not an uncommon problem - and was left with a considerable amount of debt. So much so in fact that he would die penniless in 1696, having been forced to sell all his books and instruments. The map is mentioned in glowing terms by Johann Georg Keyssler in his work 'Travels Through Germany, Bohemia.' (1756): "George Matthew Vischer, a Tirolese, and a minister of Leonstain in Upper Austria, assisted by one Russel, an engraver, published in the year 1669 a very beautiful map of Upper Austria in twelve sheets. In 1670 they also published with the same accuracy and beauty a map of Lower Austria in fifteen (sic) sheets. But in their map of the Dutchy of Stiria, in twelve sheets, they have not succeeded so well." It is also referenced, some 170 years later, by Lt. Col. Lawrence Martin who worked on the new borders of Austria and Germany marked out in the Treaty of Versailles. He would later, from 1924-46 be head of the map department at the Library of Congress: "Do you suppose the seventeenth century geographer [Georg Vischer] dreamed that his map would be used by an itinerant twentieth century geographer from the wilderness of North America, doing geographical fieldwork in His Sacred Majesty's Archduchy of Austria, traveling in the uniform of the army of the United States of America, and reporting to a great Peace Conference in Paris about where the boundaries of the proud and venerable Austria might be? I hope maps of mine will live as long!" He goes on to say: "But this shows what maps can be used for. Maps, multi-shaped, parti-colored, dust gathering objects, the bane of every librarian's existence, which he has to keep - they do have serious use" - a sentiment that we would like to endorse.

His most important work is the Saturnalia, an account of a long dicussion held during a symposium on the occasion of the Saturnalia. The subjects discussed are grammar, philology, mythology, history. Macrobius also produced a commentary on the Somnium Scipionis of Cicero. The work of this late antique writer is important because he rescued opinions and passages from works that have been lost. The Dutch classical scholar Johannes Isaac Pontanus, 1571-1639, was born at sea (hence his name), when his parents were on their way to Denmark. There he was for some time a helper of Tycho Brahe (NNBW I,1417). In 1606 he became professor of Mathematics at the University of Harderwijk. His edition of Macrobius dates from 1597, a second edition from 1628.)

        Arithmeticorum Libri Sex, et De Numeris multangulis Liber Unus

      Cum Commentariis C.G. Bacheti...& observationibus D.P. de Fermat...Accessit Doctrinae Analyticae inventum novum, collectum ex variis eiusdem D. de Fermat Epistolis. Large engraved vignette on title, several finely engraved headpieces & initials, & a few woodcut diagrams in the text. 6 p.l., 64, 341, 48 pp., one leaf of errata. Folio, cont. speckled calf (carefully rebacked with the orig. spine laid-down, light browning as usual, two corners discretely repaired), spine richly gilt. Toulouse: B. Bosc, 1670. First edition, and a very fine and fresh copy. This edition is the first to contain Fermat&#39;s observations on the Arithmetica of Diophantus, the first systematic treatise on algebra; it also contains (on H3r) the first statement of the celebrated "Last Theorem" which Fermat originally wrote by hand in the margins of his copy of Bachet&#39;s edition of Diophantus (1620). This theorem is the most famous problem in mathematics and remained unsolved for over 325 years until its recent solution by Andrew Wiles. But it should be remembered that Wiles was able to resort to sophisticated 20th-century techniques not available to Fermat. The exact form of Fermat&#39;s proof, if indeed he had a genuine one, thus remains one of the great unsolved puzzles of mathematics. The 1670 edition was published posthumously by Fermat&#39;s son Clement Samuel. It is based on his father&#39;s annotated copy of the Bachet edition of 1621 and contains a major part of Fermat&#39;s work on number theory, a branch of mathematics that he virtually created. A nice copy with the extremely rare errata leaf. &#10087; Smith, Rara Arithmetica, p. 348. .

        LEGENDS NO HISTORIES: or, A SPECIMEN OF SOME ANIMADVERSIONS UPON THE HISTORY OF THE ROYAL SOCIETY.

      London, no printer named, 1670.Wherein, besides the several errors against common literature, sundry mistakes about the making of Salt - Petre and Gun - Powder are detected, and rectified: whereunto are added two Discourses, one of Pietro Sardi, and another of Nicolas Tartaglia relating to that subject. Translated out of Italian. With a brief account of those passages of the authors life, which the virtuosi intended most to censure, and expatiate upon: written to save them the trouble of doing any thing besides defending themselves. Together with the PLUS ULTRA of Mr Joseph Glanvill reduced to a Non - Plus, &c. FIRST EDITION, 1670, 2 parts in 1 with general title and separate title also dated 1670 to Part II: The Plus Ultra reduced to a Non Plus: Or, A Specimen of some Animadversions upon the Plus Ultra of Mr. Glanvill, wherein sundry Errors of some Virtuosi are discovered, the Credit of the Aristotelians in part Re - advanced; and Enquiries made... Small 4to, 225 x 160 mm, 8¾ x 6¼ inches, pages [30], 3 - 16, [2], 17 - 127, [1]; [16], 116, 115 - 179, 178 - 179, [1], including errata leaf in each part, D2 (page 19 / 20) is duplicated in Part I, P5 in Part II (paginated 115 / 116) is an inserted leaf, catchwords are continuous, bound in full mottled calf, blind rules and corner fleurons to covers, rebacked with raised bands, blind rules and gilt lettered morocco label, edges speckled red.

Binding tight and firm. A very good copy. Henry Stubbe (1632 - 1676) was a physician, author and Parliamentarian soldier who for a time was keeper of the Bodleian Library. He was a learned man who corresponded with many including Hobbes. At the Restoration he changed from being an anti - Royalist pamphleteer to being a pamphleteer for hire and he seems to have undertaken his attacks on the Royal Society funded by conservative Aristotelian opponents of the Society. Part I of our book is an attack on certain chapters of the History of the Society written by Thomas Sprat (1667, 7 years after its foundation), in particular those on saltpetre and gunpowder. Part II was written as a critique of Joseph Glanvill's defence of the Royal Society which was entitled Plus Ultra or, the progress and advancement of Knowledge since the days of Aristotle, in an account of some of the most remarkable late improvements of practical useful learning, to encourage philosophical endeavours." . Some chapter headings of Part II: The old Peripatetick notion of the Gravity of the Air, and the Pressure of the aereal column or cylinder; The Deceitfulness of Telescopes; The Original and progress of Chymistry; The World in the Moon, and a Voyage thither; The Use of chymical Medicaments; The Original and Progress of Anatomy; The First Inventor of the Circulation of the Blood; The Transfusion of Blood, the first Proposers and Inventors thereof; and its Usefulness; The different Nature of the Blood, and the variety of Phaenomena appearing upon the burning thereof, and mixing of it with several liquors; Some Trials in order to a discovery of the Nature of the English Baths.

        La Chine. Illustrée de plusieurs monuments tant sacrés que profanes

      Amsterdam: Janssonius à Waesberge & Weyerstraet, 1670. Large quarto frontispiece, portrait plate, two folding maps and 22 plates (complete for this edition), numerous other illustrations integral to the text; some intermittent foxing and browning, very good in recent vellum with leather ties, spine lettered in period style. "Shouldn&#39;t be left to the worms" First French edition of an influential encyclopaedia of the Chinese empire, much expanded from the earlier Latin edition of 1667 to include a Chinese-French dictionary - &#39;the first Chinese vocabulary ever printed in the West&#39; (Merrill). The book was compiled by Jesuit polymath Athanasius Kircher (1602-1680), a prolific author who published over 40 works on a wide variety of topics. As a young man Kircher aspired to preach in China; although this ambition was never realised he enjoyed much contact with Jesuits who had returned from the East. In his preface Kircher writes &#39;Father Martin Martini of Trent, the illustrious author of the Chinese Atlas and my former pupil, communicated to me many things, his keen insight having been well trained for this by his mathematical studies. He left out nothing of the curiosities or customs of those tribes.&#39; In addition to Martini, Kircher conversed at depth with other missionaries, including Michal Boym, Philip Marino, Johann Grüber and Henry Roth. He openly acknowledges this book is the fruit of their work: &#39;While I am writing this, they are here with me, and continually tell me things&hellip; While the fathers were working for the salvation of souls, they lacked time, leisure, and means. Yet, they made notes on rare things which they observed in all these vast regions where they journeyed. They asked only that those notes made with so much labour and exertion shouldn&#39;t be left to the worms, but that I should publish them for the good of the literary public. I promised to do this&hellip;&#39; The result is a detailed and lavishly illustrated encyclopaedia - a curious blend of facts derived from firsthand experience blended with Kircher&#39;s own theories (based on the premise that Chinese religion and language derived from the Egypt and the ancient Near East). Published in French, this second edition was widely distributed and influential. Löwendahl notes it &#39;contains two supplements not published before: the first is a reply by to ten questions by the Grand Duke of Tuscany (on pp. 316-23); the second is a Chinese-French dictionary (on pp. 324-67), perhaps the first published Chinese-European language dictionary.&#39;.

        Leviathan, sive De Materia, Forma, & Potestate Civitatis ecclesiasticae et civilis.

      Amsterdam, Bleau, 1670. 4to. Contemporary full vellum. A bit of minor browning. A nice, clean, and solid copy. (4), 365, (3 - Indices) + 10 (Index) + 1 (Scripturae Scrae + Eerratum) pp.. Scarce first separate Latin edition of Hobbes' groundbreaking main work, the work from which the "social contract" theory originates. The Latin edition of Hobbes' main work is of great importance to the study of the Leviathan and to the understanding of the development of Hobbes' thought. Not only does the Leviathan become accessible to readers all over Europe when appearing in the Latin version, "[a]another fact of importance is that Latin was natural to Hobbes and that the Latin version of "Leviathan" may represent his views more closely than the English." (Macdonald&Hargreaves p. XI).All later editions of the Latin version of "Leviathan" are greatly corrected and none of them appear in the same version as the present one (which is identical to that which appeared in the Opera), which provides us with the text in the form that comes closest to what Hobbes himself desired his masterpiece to be. "[...] Given these results, we may conclude that LL [i.e. the Latin Leviathan] should be counted an important source for the text of the English "Leviathan". LL is definitely more than a translation that teaches us little or nothing about the text translated. On the contrary, it is based on an independent manuscript copy of "Leviathan", and more specifically on a copy Hobbes had kept with him all the time and had apparently continued to annotate and correct. The variants of LL must therefore be treated with the greatest care wherever there are textual problems in "Leviathan", and not only in those cases in which the text of all English versions is defective. Even where it is a matter of deciding between given variants, LL should have an important, if not decisive voice. Given the fact that LL was worked out integrally by Hobbes at a rather late date, it must also be considered to contain his last decisions regarding the text as a whole. (Rogers, Karl Schuhmann, "Thomas Hobbes Leviathan, Vol. 1", p. 249)."The Latin version of "Leviathan" differs considerably from the English: it is the Latin version in which Hobbes really expressed his opinions..."
