WIT, FREDERICK DE (1630-1706)
FRAAIE ANTIEKE KAART VAN PORTUGAL "Novissima Regnorum Portugalliae et Algabriae". Kopergravure met privilege uitgegeven te Amsterdam doo Frederick de Wit in 1670. In de tijd met de hand gekleurd en fraai met goud gehoogd. Afm. 58,8 x 49,3 cm. De Wit signeerde de kaart in de plaat (linksboven): "Ex Officina Frederici de Wit". De kaart toont een veelheid aan details: vestingwerken, wegen, kerken, abdijen en honderden kleine dorpen. Het geheel is versierd met twee fraaie cartouches, elk op klassieke wijze weergegeven met putti en wapenschilden van onder andere Portugal en Algarve. De vroegste contacten dateren waarschijnlijk uit 1147, toen Vlaamse en Friese kruisvaarders de Portugese koning te hulp schoten om Lissabon op de moslims te veroveren. Als beloning ontvingen de Lage Landen belangrijke handelsvoordelen van de Portugese koning. Handel zou ook in de daaropvolgende eeuwen de basis vormen voor de bloeiende relaties tussen Nederlanders en Portugezen. De Opstand wijzigde de betrekkingen tussen beide landen echter ingrijpend. Aanvankelijk onderhielden Nederland en Portugal goede relaties. Lissabon stuurde in 1576 een speciale vertegenwoordiger naar de Staten-Generaal om de onderlinge vrijhandelszone in een verdrag vast te leggen. Toen Spanje echter Portugal in 1580 bezette, ging het mis. Nederlandse schepen mochten niet langer in Portugese havens aanleggen en hadden daardoor geen toegang meer tot de specerijenmarkten van Lissabon en andere steden. Nederland zag zich daardoor gedwongen zelf naar Indi? te gaan. Dat leidde tot een forse koloniale expansie van de Nederlandse Rep … [Click Below for Full Description]

Titelblätter in Rot und Schwarz gedruckt. Mit gestochenem Frontispiz, 2 doppelblattgroßen Kupferstichen, einer dblgr. Karte mit Panoramaansicht von Trier, 13 Textkupfern, davon 2 ganzseitig, 2 Textholzschnitten und 3 Druckermarken. Zeitgenössische blindgeprägte Schweinslederbände über Holzdeckeln mit jeweils 2 Metallschliessen. Gering gebräunt, kaum fleckig. Zwei Schliessen erneuert. De Backer/Sommervogel II, 221. NDB II, 639, Hellwig, Mittelrhein 48 (mit Abb. der Karte). Älteste und bis heute unübertroffene Gesamtdarstellung der Trierer Geschichte, begonnen von Trierer Jesuit Christoph Brouwer (1559-1617), fortgeführt von Jacob Masen (1606-81). Das Manuskript Brouwers war schon 1591 fertiggestellt, die Veröffentlichung scheiterte aber an Differenzen mit dem Erzbischof Johann von Schönenberg. Schließlich sollte das Buch 1626 in Köln erscheinen, aber auch diesmal war es ein Trierer Erzbischof, der das verhinderte. Christoph von Sötern lies wegen seines unseligen Streites mit der Abtei St. Maximin um deren Reichsunmittelbarkeit die bereits gedruckten Bögen beschlagnahmen, später wurden sie als Altpapier verkauft. Lange galt die Auflage als vernichtet, bis man aus geretteten Bögen, handschriftlich ergänzt, eine fast vollständige Ausgabe rekonstruieren konnte. Jakob Masen erweiterte das Werk dann um den Zeitraum 1600-1652. "Eine annalistisch-chronologische, heute noch wertvolle Darstellung der Geschich … [Click Below for Full Description]

Spinoza, Baruch
Hamburg: Henricum Kunraht, 1670. First Edition. First issue, with the fictitious printer's name spelled "Kunraht" and 104 misnumbered "304." Quarto (200 x 155 mm) with Roman, Hebrew, and Italic types. Final blank removed, else complete with all the typographical errors listed in the errata uncorrected. Modern rebinding with medieval antiphonal on vellum and modern endpapers. Title dust-soiled and repaired at gutter; minor staining to quire G. An exceptionally rare early philosophical text. Spinoza's most important philosophical work, bridging political theory and Biblical history. Besides his contributions to Descartes' Principia, it was the only one of his texts to be printed in his lifetime. "Spinoza's reputation as a political thinker is eclipsed by his reputation as a rationalist metaphysician. Nevertheless, Spinoza was a penetrating political theorist whose writing have enduring significance...his account of civil organization, grounded in psychological realism, stands as an important contribution to the development of constitutionalism and the rule of law" (Stanford). In the present work, Spinoza combines "Cartesian rationalism and the Hebraic tradition in which he grew up, [and it] is a solitary but crystal clear exposition of the theory of natural right. He defends with eloquence the liberty of thought and speech in speculative matters, and the Tractatus contains the first clear statement of the independence of each other of philosophy and religion" (PMM). A critical piece in the history of political ethics. PMM 153.

Willis, Thomas
Amsterdam, apud D. Elzevirium, 1670, 12°, (12), 338, 20 pp., Titelblatt mit Holschnittvignette, Pergamenteinband d.Zt.; feines Exemplar. Fine copy with old purple inkstamp to title of the Fürstliche Solms-Lich'sche Bibliothek zu Lich (Hesse). An excellent copy. Willis's Pathologiae cerebri, a sequel to his great Cerebri Anatome is considered the most important early study of the pathology and neurophysiology of the brain. "Willis gave one of the most extensive accounts of the whole field of mental illness which had appeared up to that time. He attributed 'melancholy' or affective psychosis to 'passions of the heart'; and 'madness' or psychosis accompanied by thought disorder, delusions or hallucinations - that is schizophrenia - to 'vice or fault of the Brain'. He recognised the difference between the symptoms of gross brain disease and those of mental illness in which he accounted for the absence of pathological findings by postulating a disturbance of the brain and nerves in terms of disordered 'Animal Spirits'" (Hunter and Macalpine, Three Hundred Years of Psychiatry, 1535-1860). A second part of the volume is Willis's treatise on scurvy "De scorbuto".The first edition of 1667 is a work of exceptional rarity. It was reprinted in 1668 (twice, including once by the Elzevirs) and again in 1670 (our edition). Eines der frühesten Lehrbücher der Neurologie überhaupt. Das Werk ist berühmt wegen seiner interessanten Schilderungen klinischer Bilder und der ausführlichen Beschreibung der Krampfleiden, besonders der Epilepsie.

Epicurus.
H. Herringman at the Blew Anchor, 1670. A beautiful example of => a somber binding by one of the Queens' Binders encases this third edition of => the first translation into English of Epicurus's Morals, first published in 1656. Probably the Queens' Binder B, arguably the best artisan of four Restoration binders employed by Catherine of Braganza and Mary of Modena, fashioned this elegant blind-tooled black morocco binding, each board bearing the B binder's distinctive all-over design of "four-petalled conventional flower[s] springing from a pair of leaves" (Nixon, p. 100), framed by drawer handle motifs, acorns, grapes, and pointellé decoration. The spine is blind-tooled with raised bands and the title gilt on a red leather label; the endpapers are marbled and the edges black (faded). The text is printed in roman and italic, ruled in red throughout, with sidenotes inset within the red ruled border. An => engraved portrait of Epicurus faces the title-page. The translator, Walter Charleton (1620-1707), was named physician-in-ordinary to Charles I shortly after graduating from Oxford, and published numerous books on natural philosophy as well as physiology and antiquity. To the various writings by the philosopher Epicurus (341-270) included herein, Charleton added an Apology for Epicurus, building a Christian framework for the following chapters. Provenance: A later pencil inscription on the front free endpaper indicates this book may have once been in the library at => Dyrham Park, a 17th-century English mansion now overseen by the National Trust.

Theologe und Historiker Arnold Montanus (A. van den Berghe; 1625-1683) hat sich mit seinen Büchern über die Völker und Kulturen der Neuen Welt und über die Unternehmungen seiner Landsleute in Übersee einen Namen gemacht. Da sie in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt wurden, übten seine Kompilationen einen großen Einfluss aus auf die Wahrnehmung der Europäer von den behandelten Regionen. Dieser Klassiker aus dem Goldenen Zeitalter der Niederlande gehört zu seinen bekanntesten Werken und wurde erst 1727 von Kaempfers Japanwerk abgelöst. Montanus' Berichte über verschiedene Gesandtschaften erwarben er oder Jacob van Meurs von Seefahrern und Mitarbeitern der Ostindischen Kompagnie (VOC), darunter vier bisher unveröffentlichte Japan-Manuskripte. Ferner benutzte er Missionsberichte und ergänzte sie durch längere historische Ausführungen aus verschiedenen Quellen. Die Illustrationen kehren in vielen anderen Japanwerken wieder; sie sind mit denen in der Orig.-Ausgabe von 1669 identisch. Zusätzlich ist hier ein halbseitiges Kupfer mit deutscher Unterschrift ei … [Click Below for Full Description]

Locke, John]; Hamel, Hendrick
Chez Louys Billaine, au second Pilier de la grande Salle du Palais, à la Palme, & au grand Celar, A Paris, 1670. First French edition. In somewhat later leather. Panels blind-ruled, spine with five raised bands, gilt, with red title vignette. Edges painted. (8), 165, (1) p. John Locke's copy, with his signature and inscriptions, of the first European account of Joseon Korea. Hendrick Hamel (1630-1692) is known as the first Westerner to provide a first-hand account of Korea, his work is the first book in European language on the Asian country. Hamel was a bookkeeper of the Dutch East India Company who, together with thirty-five other crewmates, survived a deadly shipwreck on Jeju Island in South Korea, while sailing to Japan in 1653. After being kept in custody of the local prefect for about a year, due to the intervening of the royal interpreter, a fellow Dutchmen who had also been shipwrecked in Korea some fifteen years earlier, they were taken to the court of King Hyojong of Joseon in Seoul. The King forbade the men leaving the country accordingly to the kingdom's policy to protect the land from foreign powers, however, they were given freedom to live their lives in the Korean society. After thirteen years, in 1666, Hamel and seven of his associates managed to flee the country and sailed to Japan to the Dutch trading post on Deshima. They spent a year there, while Hamel wrote his journal about his adventures and also about the country itself, the climate, geography, government, military organization, law, judicial practices, religion, language and social customs of Korea. … [Click Below for Full Description]

Campagna : In Officina episcopali, prostant Lugduni apud L. Anisson, 1670. First Edition. Hardcover. Good. First published discussion of binary arithmetic. Folio, 32 cm. Vellum spine over marbled boards, modern leather spine label. lxxviii, 779 pp. Engraved title piece. Lacking all 52 plates. Faint dampstain to middle of page on title piece and first 16 pages. Contemporary ink marginalia to several pages. Contemporary signature to title page. <br> Lobkowitz was a Spanish writer who worked in mathematics and astronomy and was fascinated by number systems. In 1670, Lobkowitz published his Mathesis Biceps, where he commentated on the base two number system (lxv-lxviii). In this work, he showed the decimal digits 0 - 32 encoded as binary. "He implemented an atypical notation for his encodings. Instead of using the symbols "0" and "1" to write his binary numbers, Lobkowitz decided to use "0" and "a". His reason for the choice was that, "One cannot mistake a binary string for a decimal one." (unlike Hariot before and Leibniz after him)" (Glaser) This has the obvious advantage that one cannot mistake a binary string for a decimal one, i.e. a0a0 = 10 and a0aa = 11. <br> Caramuel was also the first mathematician to make a reasoned study on non-decimal counts, resulting in a significant contribution to the development of the binary numeral system. He published specific examples of base 2 representations of numbers. He also treated bases 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 12, and 60. However, Caramuel does not show examples of arithmetic operations in nondecimal systems, except for the operation … [Click Below for Full Description]

FERMAT, Pierre de] DIOPHANTUS of Alexandria
Bernard Bosc, Toulouse, 1670. First edition, a fine copy, of Fermat's annotated edition of Diophantus' Arithmetica. This is the first printing of Fermat's contributions to the theory of numbers, of which he is the undisputed founder, including his famous statement of 'Fermat's last theorem.' Since most of Fermat's work in number theory remained unpublished in his lifetime, "it was neither understood nor appreciated until Euler revived it and initiated the line of continuous research that culminated in the work of Gauss and Kummer in the early nineteenth century" (DSB). Fermat showed little interest in publishing his work, which remained confined to his correspondence, personal notes, and to marginal jottings in his copy of the 1621 editio princeps, edited by Claude Bachet, of Diophantus' Arithmetica. Fermat's marginalia included not only arguments against some of Bachet's conclusions, but also new problems inspired by Diophantus. After his death, Fermat's eldest son Clement-Samuel published his father's marginalia in this new edition. Most famous of the 48 observations by Fermat included here is the tantalizing note that appears on fol. H3r "regarding the impossibility of finding a positive integer n > 2 for which the equation xn + yn = zn holds true for the positive integers x, y, and z" (Norman). Fermat noted that he had discovered a "truly marvellous demonstration" of this proposition, but that the margin was too narrow to transcribe it.

Impresión sobre buen papel, a dos columnas, con capitulares y viñetas xilográficas. Plena piel del XIX, hlos gofrados en planos. Magnífico ejemplar, muy limpio y con grandes márgenes. El Opus Epistolarum recoge todo el epistolario –más de 800 cartas– del humanista Pedro Martyr de Angleria, el que fuera Capellán de la reina Isabel la Católica, miembro del Consejo de Indias y cronista real de Castilla y de las Indias entre otros cargos. Gran parte de las cartas recogidas iban destinadas al conde Juan de Borromeo y a Íñigo González de Mendoza, a quien le debía el amparo para ser recibido en la Corte itinerante de los Reyes Católicos procedente de Roma primero y Zaragoza después. Según Benito Sánchez Alonso, en Historia de la historiografía Española, en el Opus Epistolarum Anglería se manifiesta como «un verdadero periodista anticipado, cuya curiosidad se extiende a todo lo que ocurre, a las cosas más dispares.

Il existe deux tirages de la seconde édition, l'un sans mention d'édition (dont fait partie le présent exemplaire), l'autre avec mention de "seconde édition" en page de titre Albert Maire indique dans son impressionnante bibliographie :" On peut la considérer comme une véritable deuxième édition, bien que le titre n'en porte pas l'indication". Elle correspond à son numéro 6, "véritable deuxième édition" ; on trouvera chez Claudin dans sa bibliographie des éditions originales d'auteurs française de la bibliothèque La Rochebilière des précisions très intéressantes. Il décrit notre exemplaire sous le numéro 120 : "C'est celle que M. Brunet indique à tort comme étant la première. Elle n'a pas d'errata, les fautes qui en étaient l'objet étant corrigées". Il s'agit d'un exemplaire portant une page de titre identique à celle des exemplaires de l'édition originale, à la différence des exemplaires qu'il décrit au n°121, dont Claudin dit : "cette édition est exactement la même que la précédente, saufs les mots seconde édition qui ne sont pas sur le titre du n°120.

Il semble que líimpression ne comportant pas líindication ´ Seconde Èdition ª soit antÈrieure ‡ líautre.

HURET, Grégoire.
Paris: De l'Imprimerie d'André Cramoisy, rüe S. Iacques, au Sacrifice d'Abraham, proche S. Severin, 1670. First edition. First edition of this important work on perspective and painting. "The draughtsman and engraver Grégoire Huret (1610-70) - an academician who was also close to the king - took over Bosse's lectures at the Royal Academy of Painting and Sculpture. In 1670, Huret published Optique de portraiture et peinture (Optics of portraying and painting) in which he expressed great concern about the state of the art, particularly criticising Bosse's book from 1665 [On the practices of geometrical planes and perspectives] and previous publications... Huret claimed that his book should be seen as a contribution to the education of the young, especially to teaching them useful rules for drawing perspective... Huret was well read and discussed books on other subjects than perspective. Naturally enough these included general works on painting, but also Desargues's and Pascal's works on projective geometry... Among the more productive passages in Huret's book one can find a presentation of the construction and use of an angle scale. He also dealt with a point most authors avoided, namely the use of scaled lengths in perspective constructions. In this connection he presented the technique for applying a reduced distance in a distance point construction - without reducing the actual distance - that 'sGravesande applied later ... Huret may have been searching for a closer link between perspective and projective geometry. It also seems he had some doubts concerning perspective th … [Click Below for Full Description]

BORELLI, Giovanni Alfonso.
Dominici Ferri, Bologna, 1670. A fine copy of one of the most important early treatises on fluid mechanics. In this work Borelli "argues against positive levity, discusses the Torricellian experiment, takes up siphons, pumps, and the nature of fluidity, tries to understand the expansion of water while freezing, and deals with fermentation and other chemical processes" (DSB). "This work is important as the first treatise on capillarity, and for containing important investigations on the action of capillary tubes, in which the author, inter alia, formulates the law that the height of the ascent of liquids in capillary tubes is inversely proportional to their diameters. His investigations also led him to the conclusion that the phenomenon of capillarity is independent of the pressure of air" (Zeitlinger in Sotheran, First supplement, 3060). "[De motionibus naturalibus] was well known among Borelli’s contemporaries and is quoted by Varignon in his Projet d’une nouvelle mechanique. It is reviewed in the first volume of Philosophical Transactions Abridged, where it is praised for its thoroughness, for the discussion of Torricelli's experiments and for Borelli’s stand against Descartes on the nature of fluidity" (Roberts & Trent). Borelli regarded this work, together with his De vi percussionis (1667), as necessary preparation for his masterpiece, De motum animalium (1680-81), on which he had worked since the early 1660s. The work appeared in three subsequent editions, testifying to its influence."While On the Force of Percussion laid out some foundational propositions relating to … [Click Below for Full Description]
