[all but 3 plates incl. in foliation/pagination]. engraved title with bust of Louis XIV by Aegid. Rousselet, 11 engravings on 7 double-page plates, 30 large engravings with letterpress text (most verso's blank, 1 double-page), & 10 sheets with 55 small engraved emblems. 7 engraved headpieces, 5 engraved tailpieces & 3 engraved initials. A nice crisp copy, bound in full modern period-style marbled calf, gilt back. First Edition of this beautiful fête book, recording one of the most celebrated of the spectacular festivals held at Versailles by the young Louis XIV. The tournament took place in front of the Tuileries, in a vast amphitheatre since designated by the name 'place du Carrousel'. Five groups of costumed noblemen representing Romans, Persians, Turks, Indians, and Americans, participated in the event which included games of skill, the Romans led by the King, the Persians by his brother Philippe, the Turks by the Prince de Condé, the Indians by the Duc d'Enghien, and the Americans by the Duc de Guise. The magnificent engravings by Israel Silvestre and François Chauveau depict the splendid procession from the Place Vendôme to the Place du Carrousel, the elaborate costumes of the participants, the emblems and devices of the participating French nobles, and the grand festivities held in the amphitheatre. Of special note are the six engravings of the members of the American group, dressed in fantastic 'native American' costumes; one of these shows black bear-tamers. The descriptive text was written by Charles Perrault, who was secretary, assistant and advisor to Colbert in matters relating to the arts and sciences (1663), controller-general of the department of public works, member of the commission that later developed into the Académie des Inscriptions, and member of the Académie française.

Bella ristampa di Amsterdam del capolavoro di Grozio, opera fondante del giusnaturalismo moderno. Il "De Jure Belli ac Pacis" fu steso da Grozio nel periodo del suo esilio parigino e dato alle stampe nel 1625 per i tipi di Nicolas Buon. In una serrata indagine sui fondamenti dell'autorit? statale, Grozio confuta le basi teologiche della stessa e, in un' epoca lacerata dalle guerre di religione, cerca invece di porla su principi razionali e naturali. Il diritto pubblico, nella sistematizzazione di Grozio, diventa una scienza deduttiva simile alla matematica; lo stato di natura, con l'associazione tra individui fondata sulle mere leggi naturali, precede sempre e comunque lo stato politico, che, tuttavia, nel suo costituirsi, deve ispirarsi al modello naturale rispettandone le leggi di base. (Cfr. Sapori, 1465). Esemplare fascinoso, in perfetto stato di conservazione. ? 600.

      Lugduni [Leiden], Apud Ioannem Thioly, 1670. 8vo. Contemporary half calf with simple gilding to spine. Gilt title-label to spine partly missing. Four tiny worm-holes to upper front hinge, just touching front free end-papers and nothing else. Minor edge-wear, but a nice, clean, and tight binding. Ex-libris stamps to title-page (one being R.D.-E. Gelin's, the other unlegible but probably a theological library). Mostly very faint marginal dampstaining to lower margin thorughout, not touching text. Neat old owner's name to inside of front board (Soldner). Without the two blank leaves between the end of the dedication and the beginning of the text (there is clearly no leaf with any text lacking; there is either a pagination-error, or there has been one or two blank leaves between the end of the dedication and the beginning of the work. In the other copies that we have been able to find collations of, there has been no leaf a4 nor A1 either - there is no doubt that the text is complete), and without the blank leaf after the end of Part One, but with two blanks at the end of Part Two. (8) pp., pp. 3-302; 140 pp. + two blank leaves.. Etremely scarce first edition of Jacques de Billy's mathematical magnum opus, known primarily as "Diophantus Redivivus" (i.e. "Diophantus Restored"), in which he gives some of the most important solutions to Diophantine problems, of which he was an expert. The work is highly important within the field of number theory and counts as one of the greatest testimonies to the early development of this branch of mathematics. The copy has belonged to the famous mathematician Johann Georg von Soldner (of the Soldner coordinate system). It was partly due to the rediscovery of Diophantus in the 16th century that Fermat reached his famous "last theorem" in the middle of the 17th century, when reading Diphantus' "Arithmetica" and engaging himself with the problems presented here. Jacques de Billy (1602-1679), a French Jesuit, who taught mathematics and theology and received the first professorship of mathematics at the Collège de Dijon, was highly interested in the problems that Diophantus had presented in his famous work, and some time before 1659, an active correspondence began between himself and Fermat, which led to, among other things, the his important "Diophantus Redivivus". The work includes many of Fermat's discoveries within the field as well as Billy's own take on them.Before a professorship of mathematics had been created at the Collège de Dijon, the mathematical enthusiast Jacques de Billy was master of studies and professor of theology. His love for mathematics meant, however, that he taught the students privately, and one of the most eager students that he thus privately taught was Jacques Ozanan, in whom Billy instilled a profound love for calculus.The only auction-records that we have been able to locate of the present work are that of Macclesfield (2004) and that of Honeyman (1978), both of which are without leaves between a3 and A2, thus lacking these two blanks (if they have ever been there). The Macclesfield-copy has the blank leaf after Part One and the two final blanks at the end of Part Two, but not the other (possible) blanks. The Honeyman-copy lacks all blank leaves, but only these, it seems.Brunet I: 946, stating "Recherché et rare" (collation: 302 et 140 pp.). Not in Poggendorf, not in Graesse.The previous owner Johann Georg von Soldner (1776-1833) was a famous German physicist, mathematician and astronomer, early on renowned for his great talent for mathematics (though almost completely self-taught). The Soldner coordinate system, which was in use until the middle of the 20th century in Germany, was named after him, as was the Ramaunajan-Soldner constant, but today he is probably primarily remembered for the final conclusion of light being diverted by heavenly bodies. It was Soldner that Einstein was accused of plagiarizing, when he calculated and published a value for the amount of gravitational light-bending in light skimming the Sun in 1911."Soldner was simple and reserved in manner, and he valued ral scholarship for its own sake. His painstaiking observational work on the detection of motion among fixed stars could be of value only to future generations of astronomers and illustrates the unselfish spirit of his work. His writings are clear and concise, and he avoided repetionon of what was already common knowledge." (D.S.B. XII:518)

        Diophantus geometra siue Opus contextum ex arithmetica et geometria simul : in quo quæstiones omnes Diophanti, quæ geometrice solui possunt, enodantur tum algebricis, tum geometricis rationibus. Adiectus est Diophantus geometra promotus, in quo subtiles propositiones non absimili methodo pertractantur, & via noua ad eiusmodi praxes inueniendas aperitur.Paris: Michel Soly, 1660.

      Rare first edition of this work on the indeterminate problems of Diophantus' Arithmetica. Billy corresponded actively with Fermat on number theory, and it is mainly through his collection of letters from Fermat, published as 'Doctrinae Analyticae Inventum Novum' in the 1670 edition of Bachet's Diophantus, that we know of Fermat's methods for solving Diophantine equations. This work, published a decade before the 'Inventum Novum', also deals with Diophantine problems, in which both arithmetical and geometrical solutions are given. The second part is devoted to 59 algebraic problems that are not found in Diophantus. <br/><br/> "From 1631 to 1633 Billy taught mathematics at the Jesuit college at Rheims. He became a close friend of Bachet, who was one of his pupils at Rheims. After this Billy taught in Grenoble and then was rector of a number of Jesuit Colleges in Chalons, Langres and in Sens. From 1665 to 1668 he was professor of mathematics at the College of Dijon. One of his pupils in Dijon was Ozanam but this was before he was appointed to the chair of mathematics so, since there were no formal mathematics classes at the College, he taught Ozanam privately. Billy corresponded with Fermat and produced a number of results in number theory which have been named after him. Billy had collected many problems from Fermat's letters and, after the death of his father, Fermat's son appended de Billy's collection under the title Doctrinae analyticae inventum novum (New discovery in the art of analysis) as an annex to his edition of the Arithmetica of Diophantus (1670). Itard writes in [DSB]:- <br/><br/> 'It is an elaborate study of the techniques of indeterminate analysis used by Fermat and, on the whole, it explains them correctly. From it one can guess at Fermat's general line of activity in a field in which there are few pertinent documents.' <br/><br/> He also published astronomical tables such as 'Tabulae Lodoicaeae seu universa eclipseon doctrina tabulis'. This was a table of eclipses for the years 1656 to 1693 and included solar and lunar tables. Billy is also important in being one of the first to reject the role of astrology in science, along with superstitious notions about the malevolent influence of comets. Among Billy's most important works are: Abrégé des préceptes d'algèbre (1637); Nova geometricae clavis algebra (1643); Tractatus de proportione harmonicae (1658); and Diophantus geometria sive opus contextum ex arithmetica et geometria simul (1660)."

A few wormtracts, sometimes browning to foldings.. First edition with all 5 parts and complete with 25 maps. Although this atlas was never reprinted, the maps were used over the following 25 years in successive editions of Varenius's Cosmography."In 1667, the first of a new series of maps were engraved for Blome's A Geographical Description....1670. The completed volume was in small folio, and contained 24 maps (plus one duplicated), engraved by Francis Lamb, Thomas Burnford and Wenceslas Hollar). The maps in the atlas, as is clearly stated in the title to each, are copied from the equivalent map, published by the French geographer and mapmaker, Nicolas Sanson, and issued in his Cartes Generales de toutes les Parties du Monde of 1658. Althought this was not an original publication, it is worth pointing out that that this was the first new folio atlas to be published in England since 1627, the year Speed's Prospect Of The Most Famous Parts of the world appeared, which also relied on continental geographical models. Furthermore, this is the first folio (and quite possibly the very first) world atlas wholly engraved, printed and published in England......It would be hard to claim a successful career for Blome, but he occupies a very importent position in the history of the English map-trade of the seventeenth century. He was the first publisher in England for 40 years to prepare a new folio world atlas, the first in over sixty years to publish a new set of (albeit small) folio county maps, the first to seriously plan an illustrated description of London, and the first to plan a series of volumes related to the various Continents of the World."
