Modern half calf. 19.5 cm (Ref: Schweiger 2,587; Brunet 5,1286: 'edition assez estimee'; Ebert 12720; 8 copies in STCN, of which 4 in Holland; the description of STCN does not mention the 2 cancels, which our copy has) (Details: Modern & tasteful binding in antique style; back with 5 raised bands; covers covered with marbled paper; frontispiece depicting Macrobius as a kind of 'penseur'; printer's device on title; some woodcut initials, and figures in the text; cancels of leaf A1 and X1 have not replaced the original leaves, which remained in their place, but have been bound at the end of the book; the original A1 has fingerprint ti, the cancel has ta) (Note: Macrobius, ca. 400, is considered to be one of the last pagan Roman authors. 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. Surface pitting to covers, corners just slightly worn, lacking pastedowns, upper margins cropped, in places excising the page numbers, light foxing to last 2 pages of Part I, two words crossed out in To the Reader, Part II, a few pages slightly foxed and lightly browned in Part II, small closed tear to 1 margin corner, repaired, small chip to 2 upper margins. 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;.

      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..." (Macdonald&Hargreaves p. XVI).Macdonad&Hargreaves: 45

        Notomie di Titiano, dedicata all'ill Sig. Franc. Ghisillieri.

      (Bologna, (Bologna, circa 1670). - In-folio. Collation : titre, 17 planches. En feuilles, conservé dans un porte-feuille moderne, titre doré au dos. Très rare suite gravée par Bonavera d'après les illustrations du "De humani corporis fabrica" de Vésale (Basel, 1543). Beau titre gravé avec le portrait de Titien au-dessus du lion de Saint-Marc et 17 planches (3 du squelette et 14 des muscles), devant de magnifiques paysages, sans texte ni les chiffre d'identification des muscles. On lit sur la première planche : "Ticianus inventor et delineavt. Dominicus Bonauera sculpsit." Les planches du "De humani corporis fabrica" étaient attribuées à l'époque au Titien. Elles proviennent de son atelier et sont attribuées plus spécialement à Jan Stephen van Calcar. Certaines planches sont très certainement l'oeuvre de Vésale lui-même. Cette très belle suite, se trouve très rarement complète comme ici. Bon exemplaire. Cushing VI. D.-9. Choulant Franck 196. NLM 12323. Manque au catalogue de la Bibliothèque Nationale. Beautiful engraved title with a portrait of Titian above St. Mark's lion and 17 plates (3 skeletal plates and the 14 muscle plates) decorated with scenic landscapes and without text and lettering and identification of the muscles. Formerly attributed to Tiziano Vecelli, but now generally conceded to have been drawn by his atelier and more particulary by Jan Stephen van Calcar. "The cumulative evidence points with the near certainty to the fact that the illustrations of the "Fabrica" emanated from the atelier of Titian. Jan van Kalkar, Domenico Campagnola and other artists participated in the work under the supervision of the master, but some of the plates are certainly the work of Vesalius himself."

        Geometrischer Abriß desß Sachsenwalds, sambt deßen angräntzenden Örttern ...

      Lüneburg: v. Stern'sche Druckerei (?) 1670,. Kupferstichkarte, Christoph Metzger fec., 68 x 48 cm. (Mit Spuren alter Faltung, Bug unterlegt, einige helle alte Tintenflecke, minimal gebräunt, sonst gut erhalten). Abzug auf stärkerem Papier. Einblattdruck, sehr selten.. * Die Karte wurde "in der Statt Lüneburg verfertiget und unterschrieben" (möglicherweise in der v.Stern'schen Druckerei hergestellt); sie zeigt das Gebiet des Sachsenwaldes (östlich von Hamburg) bis Wohltorff, Kropellhagen, Dassendorf, Brunstorf, Schwartzenbeck, Havekorst, Möhsen, Lasseburg und Kuddewörde. Die Karte entstand als Beweismittel in einem Rechtsstreit zwischen den Reichsstädten Hamburg und Lübeck einerseits und dem Herzogtum Lauenburg andererseits über den Grenzverlauf im Sachsenwald. Die eigentliche Landkarte nimmt etwa die untere Blatthälfte ein, während im oberen Teil - ebenfalls in Kupfer gestochen - ausführliche Erläuterungen und Zeugenberichte den Prozeß betreffend enthalten sind. Die Karte wurde von den Landmessern Christian Schildknecht (Ingenieur in Güstrow) und Dionys Bredekow (Ingenieur in Stade) gezeichnet und von Christoph Metzger in Lüneburg gestochen (und am Unterrand signiert). Bereits 1549 hatten die Hansestädte vor dem Reichskammergericht zu Speyer Klage eingereicht. Nach langwierigem, mehr als m100 Jahre (!) dauerndem Prozeß erging schließlich 1663 das Urteil, welches erst 1670 verkündet wurde. Die den Prozeßakten beiliegende größere Manuskriptkarte hatte letztlich Anerkennung als Beweismittel gefunden und führte zum Erfolg; die 1670 angefertigte Kupferstich-Version diente der Öffentlichkeit als Nachweis der nunmehr korrekten Grenzziehung (vgl. Geerz S. 62f., auch Anm. 25+26). Die Autoren der Karte haben folgendermaßen signiert: Text oben links, 7. und 8. Zeile: "... den 25. 9bris (= Novembris) a(nno) 1664 von Christian Schildknecht, Ingenieur zu Güstrow, und Dionys Bredekaw, Ingenieur zu Stade, in der Statt Lüneburg verfertiget und unterschrieben."

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...

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&#39;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.

Born in Lille in 1636, Monnoyer first studied in Antwerp as a student of Davidsz de Heem, before going to Paris where he rapidly established his reputation and set a style of decorative flower painting for the adornment of great French residences. In 1665 he was accepted as a member of the Academy; in 1673 he exhibited four paintings at the Salon. Patronized by Le Brun, Louis XIV's Minister of Arts, Jean Baptiste Monnoyer was employed to decorate the royal palaces at Versailles, Saint Cloud, Vincennes, le Grand Trianon, Meudon and Marly. He also designed floral motifs and borders for the Gobelins and Beauvais tapestry works. In 1678 the Duke of Montagu, British Ambassador to Louis XIV, persuaded Monnoyer to accompany him to England, where he won immediate acclaim, painting flowerpieces and still lifes to adorn the homes of the aristocracy. His works decorated Boughton, Montagu House (now the site of the British Museum), Windsor Castle, Kensington Palace and Hampton Court; his patrons included Queen Anne, Mary II, the Duke of St. Albans and the Earl of Carlisle. These suites are very rare, with most extant sets broken and colored for the print market. A similar bound collection, containing 25 engravings from four different suites, is located in the Rijks Museum (object number RP-P- 2011-65). Dunthorne 212; cf. Nissen BBI 1399; cf. Paviere, Jean Baptiste Monnoyer (Leigh-on-Sea, 1966). [Attributes: Hard Cover]
