      Amsterdam: Jacob Meurs, 1671. - Engraved titlepage, [8],585,[27]pp. plus seven portraits, thirty-one double-page plates, large folding hemispheric map, and fifteen double-page maps. Seventy engraved in- text illustrations. Small folio. Modern three quarter speckled calf and marbled boards, red gilt morocco label. [IN WORK WITH HEALD] Expert repair to lower corner of engraved titlepage. Bookplate on front pastedown. Overall quite clean internally. Very good. Correctly called "a classic book on America" by Borba de Moraes, Montanus' narrative contains a wealth of interesting maps and illustrations on both North and South America. The work was later translated into English, with various alterations, by John Ogilby, but this Dutch edition is the true first. The North American section of Montanus contains notable versions of the Blaeu map of New England and New Netherland, as well as versions of the John Smith Virginia and Carolina maps. Among the engravings in the text is one of the first engraved views of New York (the very first, the Van der Donck view, appeared twenty years earlier). There is also a detailed map of Bermuda. There are numerous engraved views of cities and scenes in Mexico and the Caribbean. Much of the second half of the volume is devoted to Brazil, where the Dutch were deeply involved for decades in the 17th century, illustrated with numerous maps and views. The large double-sheet views are excellent and much copied in later publications; but, as Church comments: "The finely executed engravings of this work are especially brilliant in this, the original edition." Howes states that the portrait of the Prince of Nassau, present herein, only appears in the first issue. The large map, credited here to "Gerardum a Schaden," as stated in Borba de Moraes, is also sometimes credited to "Jacobum Meursium," the publisher of the book. One of the most interesting iconographic and cartographic sources of early Americana. CHURCH 613. HOWES M733, "b." ASHER, NEW NETHERLAND 14. SABIN 50086. SERVIES 200.

      WŸrzburg, Johann Andreas Endter & Wolfgang Juniors Erben 1671. - Kl.-4¡. 11 Bll., 689 S., 7 Bll. (Register). Mit gest. Titel, Wappenkupfer und 12 Kupfertafeln. Pergamentbd. d.Z. mit goldgepr. RŸckenschild und handgeschr. RŸckentitel (fleckig). Der Jesuit Athanasius Kircher war einer der grossen Universalgelehrten des 17. Jahrhunderts. Seit 1638 am Collegium Romanum als Lehrer fŸr Mathematik, Physik und Orientalistik beschŠftigt, wurde er fŸr vielfŠltige Sonderaufgaben von diesen eigentlichen Arbeiten freigestellt und widmete sich verstŠrkt seinen eigenen Forschungen auf dem Gebiet der Medizin (Ursachen und BekŠmpfung der Pest, der Erforschung der Hieroglyphen und dem Ausbau seiner bedeutenden AntiquitŠtensammlung). Diese Arbeiten sicherten ihm bleibenden Ruhm. Zahlreiche Erfindungen gehen auf ihn zurŸck: Laterna magica, Windharfe, eine magnetische Uhr, Bleipipelines u.a. - Der offiziellen Lehrmeinung gemŠss wandte er sich gegen das kopernikanische Weltbild, vertrat dieses aber in seinen spŠten Lebensjahren und gerade in vorliegendem Werk:"Der Astronaut Theodidactus (Kircher) wird von dem Engel Cosmiel zum Mond, den Planeten und den Sternen begleitet und auf diese Weise in das gesamte zeitgenšssische astrologische und kosmologische Wissen eingefŸhrt" (DŸnnhaupt). Kirchers Werk beschreibt den Erkenntnisstand der astronomischen Forschungen hinsichtlich der Sonne, der damals bekannten Planeten und des Sternenhimmels. Die Kupfertafeln zeigen Darstellungen der verschiedenen Planeten, darunter den Saturn mit Ringen, die MondoberflŠche, Sonnenflecken und vieles mehr. Die zweite Reise widmet sich dem Aufbau der Erde an der OberflŠche und im Innern; seine †berlegungen zur Geologie der Erde, zum Beispiel von einem heissen Erdkern, sind, wenn auch von seinem Zeitgenossen Descartes zutreffender vorausgeahnt, noch heute beeindruckend. Recht abenteuerlich mutet hingegen Kirchers Theorie von einer unterirdischen Verbindung der Weltmeere als Ursache fŸr die Gezeiten an. - Dritte Ausgabe, zweite in dieser vollstŠndigen Fassung. - 1660 erschien, unter Beteiligung seines SchŸlers Caspar Schott, die beiden fiktiven Reisen des Verfassers erstmals gemeinsam in einem Band und gegenŸber den Erstdrucken von 1656 und 1657 teils revidiert. - Sehr selten. - Gering stockfleckig, 4 Bll. oben angerŠndert (ohne Textverlust), Innendeckel mit Klebeschild, Vorsatz mit Feuchtigkeitsspur. - VD17 39:121918M.

        Typus eclipsis lunae, Anno Christi 1671, Imperatoris Cam Hy decimo, die XVto Lunae iiae, id est, die XXVto Martij, ad Meridianum Pekinensem.

      - Description of the lunar eclipse of 25 March 1671 by the Jesuit scholar at the Chinese court, Ferdinand Verbiest 8vo (2400 by 283mm), woodcut, printed in three colours on two sheets of mulberry paper, folded into 18 sections as a leporello. Latin title, Chinese-Manchou incipit and explicit, and 18 folds for the eclipse map (complete). The diagrams are in black with the visible sections of the moon coloured in yellow, with violet for the arches of the intersection between earth and moon. This work by Ferdinand Verbiest (1623-1688), the famous Flemish-born Jesuit missionary, mathematician, and astronomer, is an illustrated prognostication of a lunar eclipse of March 25, 1671. Verbiest, being responsible for the calendar, needed to compute the lunar eclipses for the next year for each of the seventeen Chinese provinces. The emperor wanted to have this data six months in advance, so all regions of the empire could be notified in time. This scroll shows the phases of the lunar eclipse of March 25, 1671, in seventeen drawings, one for each province. The legend is both in Chinese and Manchu. It was also one of the ways Verbiest attempted to demonstrate the superiority of European science over traditional Chinese beliefs when it came to studying the heavens. Sometime after 1684 a small number of copies were brought back for distribution in Europe by another Jesuit missionary, Philippe Couplet. However, only one other copy of this scarce item appears in auction records: the one in the vast library formed in the nineteenth century by that most voracious of collectors, Sir Thomas Phillipps. In 1945, in what was then the greatest single purchase in the history of bookselling, London dealers Lionel and Philip Robinson bought the impressive remnants of the Phillipps library, and spent many years thereafter selling it off at Sotheby's in London. The Phillipps copy of Typus Eclipsis Lunae went into Philip Robinson's own Chinese library, and in his 1988 sale made £13,750 (then $26,265) at Sotheby's. His collection also included Verbiest's Typus Solis, a similarly constructed prediction of a solar eclipse of 1669, which sold for £12,650 ($24,160). Golvers records 17 known examples: 15 in institutional libraries, and two in private hands. To this we can add the present example. As with the copy held in M nich, the present work has the title in Chinese on a separate strip of paper and tipped on in the Chinese manner (Golvers TE 1671.11). Golvers, Verbiest and the Chinese heaven (2003) pp. 446-456 nr. TE 1671. Dudink, Chinese books (KBR 2006) pp. 96-97. De Backer/Sommervogel VIII c. 577-578 nr. 15. Cordier, Sinica II 1451-1452.

      Amsterdam: Jacob Meurs, . 1671 - [8],585,[27]pp. plus seven portraits, thirty- two double-page plates, large folding hemispheric map, and fifteen double-page maps. Seventy engraved in-text illustrations. Engraved title. Thick folio. Original vellum, blindstamped cover, raised bands, manuscript title on spine. Internally clean and near fine. Minor repairs to hemispheric map. An excellent copy of this foundation work of Americana. With map credited to Jacob Meurs. Correctly called "a classic book on America" by Borba de Moraes, Montanus' narrative contains a wealth of interesting maps and illustrations on both North and South America. The work was later translated into English, with various alterations, by John Ogilby, but this Dutch edition is the true first. The North American section of Montanus contains notable versions of the Blaeu map of New England and New Netherland, as well as versions of the John Smith Virginia and Carolina maps. Among the engravings in the text is one of the first engraved views of New York (the very first, the Van der Donck view, appeared twenty years earlier). There is also a detailed map of Bermuda. There are numerous engraved views of cities and scenes in Mexico and the Caribbean. Much of the second half of the volume is devoted to Brazil, where the Dutch were deeply involved for decades in the 17th century, illustrated with numerous maps and views. The large double-sheet views are excellent and much copied in later publications; but, as Church comments: "The finely executed engravings of this work are especially brilliant in this, the original edition." Howes states that the portrait of the Prince of Nassau, present herein, only appears in the first issue. The large map, credited here to "Gerardum a Schaden," as stated in Borba de Moraes, is also sometimes credited to "Jacobum Meursium," the publisher of the book. One of the most interesting iconographic and cartographic sources of early Americana. CHURCH 613. HOWES M733, "b." ASHER, NEW NETHERLAND 14. SABIN 50086. SERVIES 200.

Complete with fifty-eight engraved plates, including engraved frontispiece, two folding maps, two folding plates, six full-page plates and forty-seven double-page plates.

Also with numerous engraved head- and tail-pieces and initials There is some confusion over the correct number of plates and maps, Sabin calls for a total of 65 but then gives a breakdown of portraits maps, views and plans which totals 55, the present copy includes 57 which accords with the plate list given at the end of the volume, and one additional plate, a map of Barbados, has also been included in this volume, but is not called for on the list of plates. There are two issues of this work. The earlier includes a view titled `Arx Carolina' between pp.204 and 205 (as in this copy), in the later issues this is replaced by a map of Carolina. Contemporary mottled calf, rebacked preserving the original spine. Brown morocco spine label, lettered in gilt. All edges marbled. Leaf E4 with a small, closed tear.

Plate between pages 466 and 467 with a 2-inch tear at the top margin, not affecting illustration. Some rubbing to boards. Some browning and toning to leaves and a few dampstains, but overall a superior copy of a book not usually found in such an unsophisticated state. John Ogilby (1600-1676) is described by the Dictionary of National Biography as a "miscellaneous writer" of a good family. He apprenticed to a dance master and was soon reputed to be "one of the best masters in the profession." He suffered a number of misfortunes in his lifetime, including being shipwrecked in his passage from Ireland while fleeing the outbreak of the Civil War in 1641 and losing his house in the Great Fire of London in 1666. He translated, edited, and published many books, including several illustrated geographical works. These included America and ones on China, Japan, Africa, Asia, and Britain. In 1671, Ogilby published the 'America', translated from Arnold Montanus' Dutch text. However, Ogilby added fresh material on the English colonies, supplied by the Proprietors of the various colonies. Earliest issues contain only the Dutch maps and views, with the new English text. Later issues had a number of important maps, draughted from English materials, added, including a map of the Americas and very early depictions of the Carolinas, Maryland, Jamaica and Barbados.

The author was a French physician, probably born in Rouen, and the first Frenchman who published a description of a voyage along the coast of the northernmost part of Europe. He was in Copenhagen and signed on as a ship's surgeon when the Danish-Norwegian trade company decided to send three ships to the coasts far north in order to gather information regarding potential business opportunities. During the voyage, which started in February 1653, the author also visited Bohuslän in Sweden, but what he writes about this province is negligable. He might also have visited the Swedish part of Lapland, although this is uncertain. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Experimenta circa generationem Insectorum ad Nobilissimum Virum Carolum Dati, 1671

      - FIRST LATIN EDITION OF FRANCESCO REDI'S MASTERPIECE REFUTING SPONTANEOUS REGENERATION, first published in Italian IN 1668 as Esperienze Intorno alla Generazione degl'Insetti (Experiments on the Generation of Insects). "A milestone in the history of modern science," Redi's book outlines the first series of experiments to disprove 'spontaneous generation' -- "a theory also known as Aristotelian abiogenesis. At the time, [the] prevailing wisdom was that maggots arose spontaneously from rotting meat"; in other words, that nonliving matter could generate the production of living organisms (Wikipedia). In his experiments, Redi captured maggots and waited for them to metamorphose, becoming flies. "Also, when dead flies or maggots were put in sealed jars with dead animals or veal, no maggots appeared, but when the same thing was done with living flies, maggots did" (Wikipedia). Redi compared two groups of meat: "the first left exposed to insects, and the second group covered by a barrier of gauze. In the exposed meat, flies laid eggs, which quickly hatched into maggots. On the gauze-covered meat, no maggots appeared, but Redi observed fly eggs on the outer surface of the gauze" (Benecke, A Brief History of Forensic Entomology). Knowing full well the terrible fates of out-spoken scientists like Giordino Bruno and Galileo Galilei, Redi was careful to express his new views in a manner that would not contradict to theological tradition of the Church; hence, his interpretations were always based on biblical passages, such as his famous adage: omne vivum ex vivo ('All life comes from life')" (Wikipedia). Francesco Redi was an Italian physician, naturalist, and poet; this work, as said, is the first Latin edition, the second edition overall. CONDITION & DETAILS: Amstelodami [Amsterdam]: Andreae Frisii, 1671. [14], 330, [28], 12 index, [1 Lector], 3. 38 plates total. (10 plates in-text, 28 bound at the end.

        The method of fluxions and infinite series; with its application to the geometry of curve-lines... To which is subjoin'd a perpetual comment upon the whole work... by John Colson.London: Henry Woodfall for John Nourse, 1736. First edition.

      The Haskell F. Norman copy of Newton's first exposition of his fluxional calculus. Originally written in 1671, in Latin, this was Newton's first comprehensive presentation of his method of fluxions which, according to Hall 'might have effected a mathematical revolution in its own day' (<i>Philosophers at War</i>, pp. 65-6). It should properly be placed first in the great trilogy of Newton's major works: <i>Fluxions, Principia</i> (1687) and <i>Opticks</i> (1704). The original Latin text remained unpublished until 1779 when it appeared in Samuel Horsley's <i>Opera Omnia</i>.<br/><br/> Newton wrote three accounts of the calculus. The composition of the first, a tract entitled 'De analysi per aequationes numero terminorum infinitas,' resulted from Newton's reception from Isaac Barrow, in the early months of 1669, of a copy of Mercator's <i>Logarithmotechnia</i>, a work which contained the series for log(1 + <i>x</i>). The work, in which Newton demonstrated his much more general methods of infinite series, was not published until 1711, when William Jones included it, along with a number of other tracts, in his <i>Analysis per quantitatum series</i>. In 'De analysi,' however, Newton "did not explicitly make use of the fluxionary notation or idea. Instead, he used the infinitely small, both geometrically and analytically, in a manner similar to that found in Barrow and Fermat, and extended its applicability by the use of the binomial theorem. ... It will be noticed that although the work of Newton contains the essential procedures of the calculus, the justification of these is not clear from the explanation he gave. Newton did not point out by what right the terms involving powers of o were to be dropped out of the calculation, any more than Fermat or Barrow ... His contribution was that of facilitating the operations, rather than of clarifying the conceptions. As Newton himself admitted in this work, his method is 'shortly explained rather than accurately demonstrated'" (Boyer, <i>The Concept of Calculus</i>, p.191). <br/><br/> It was first in 'Methodus fluxionum' that "Newton introduced his characteristic notation and conceptions. Here he regarded his variable quantities as generated by the continuous motion of points, lines, and planes, rather than as aggregates of infinitesimal elements, the view which had appeared in 'De analysi'. ... In the 'Methodus fluxionum' Newton stated clearly the fundamental problem of the calculus: the relation of quantities being given, to find the relation of the fluxions of these; and conversely" (<i>ibid</i>., pp. 192-3). <br/><br/> In Newton's third exposition, <i>De quadrature</i>, which was composed some twenty years after 'Methodus fluxionum' and published as an appendix to the <i>Opticks</i>, "Newton sought to remove all traces of the infinitely small" (<i>ibid</i>.).<br/><br/> "In his preface [to the present work] ..., Colson noted: <br/><br/> 'The chief Principle, upon which the Method of Fluxions is here built, is... taken from the Rational Mechanicks; which is, That Mathematical Quantity, particularly Extension, may be conceived as generated by continued local Motion; and that all Quantities may be conceived as generated after a like manner. Consequently there must be comparative Velocities of increase and decrease during such generations, whose Relations are fixt and determinable, and may therefore ... proposed to be found.' <br/><br/> "Thus, a line or a curve was seen as generated by a continuously moving point, a surface by the motion of a line and a solid by the motion of a surface. After defining fluxions, fluents and moments, Newton went on to show how, within this framework, significant results could be derived. Following an introduction in which it was shown how equations could be solved with the use of infinite series, seven major problems were considered:<br/> 1. From the Following Quantities (fluents) given, to find their fluxions. <br/> 2. From the given Fluxions to find the Flowing Quantities. <br/> 3. To determine Maxima and Minima of Quantities. <br/> 4. To draw Tangents to Curves. <br/> 5. To find the Quantity of Curvature in any Curve. <br/> 6. To find the Quality of Curvature in any Curve. <br/> 7. To find any number of Curves that may be squared" <br/> (Gjertsen, <i>Newton Handbook</i>, p. 158). <br/><br/> The autograph manuscript, which survives in Cambridge University Library, was entrusted to Henry Pemberton after Newton's death but he did not publish it. John Colson (1680-1760) based his translation on a copy of Newton's original manuscript made by William Jones. Both Newton's manuscript and Jones's copy lack a title page and it is unknown what title, if any, Newton gave to the manuscript. The present title, 'De methodus fluxionum,' originates with Colson. <br/> Babson 171; Gray 232; Wallis 232; Norman 1595 (this copy); Stanitz 46d.. 4to (245 x 192 mm), pp iv, ix-xxiv, 144, [1], 144-339, [1, blank], [2, errata, advertisement], with engraved plate showing the ancient philosophers contemplating the principles of motion while the trajectory of the flight of a bird being shot by a hunter is used to illustrate the measurement of velocity by the method of fluxions (intended to be inserted between pages 242 and 243 but in this copy used as a frontispiece), woodcut diagrams throughout.

        A New Plaine and most Exact map of Asia described by NI Vischer and rendered into English with the habits of the countries and manner of the cheife citties.

      1671 - London, 1671. 425 x 540mm. A separate-issue map of Asia, with borders decorated with costumes, town views and portraits of kings. Little of Overton's output was original: he bought the stock of Peter Stent after his death from the plague in 1665, and c.1700 he bought Speed's county map plates. Apparently he was planning a world atlas and lacked maps of the continents, so had them engraved. As the matching map of Africa is signed by Philip Holmes the stylistic similarity makes it likely that Holmes also engraved the Asia. Originally issued in 1668 this is an example of the second state, with Overton's new address.

        The History of the Conquest of China by the Tartars . Together with an Account of Several remarkable things, concerning the Religion, Manners, and Customes of both Nations, but especially of the latter

      London: W. Godbid, 1671. Octavo, with the four page advertisement of the bookseller Moses Pitt at the rear, some of the early pages a little dusted and a few marks throughout; but a very good copy in a recent period-style binding of dark calf, spine decorated and gilt, with russet morocco label. Early work on China. First edition of this important early work on China, now quite rare. The first major news from China to be reported in the Western world was the Manchu conquest of 1644, beginning with Father Martinio Martini&#39;s generally accurate De bello tartarico (1654), a work which traced the history of the hostility between the Chinese and the Tartars north of the Great Wall. Palafox y Mendoza, who held bishoprics in both Spain and Mexico, served briefly as the viceroy of New Spain. In addition to his ecclesiastical duties, Palafox was also in charge of the dispatch of vessels to the Philippines during his stay in Mexico. In this capacity he collected "letters and memorials" on events in China as they were forwarded to him, using them to prepare this work, the second European history of the Manchu conquest. He begins his account with the rebellion of Li Tzu-ch&#39;êng and Chang Hsien-Chung in 1640, and provides a good history of the conflict. Moreover, although saddened by the revolt, Palafox does not revert to simply depicting the Manchus as barbarians, arguing that the collapse of the empire was due largely to slow deterioration and neglect. His work is now primarily known for his interest in Chinese government, religion, dress, customs, military techniques and manners (see Donald F. Lach & Edwin J. Van Kley, Asia in the Making of Europe, I, p. 356).

      London,1671.Continuing as well the valiant exploits of that magnanimous and heroick Prince, son to the Emperor Don Bellaneo of Greece; as also the wars between him and the Souldan of Persia. Wherein is likewise described the strange and dangerous adventures that befel him in the prosecution of his love towards the Princess Florisbella, daughter to the Souldan of Babylon. His releasing of her father the Souldan from a strange enchantment, and vanquishing the Emperor of Trebizond....Now newly written in English by F.K. First part only of 3 of second edition of Francis Kirkman's translation, printed by Tho. Johnson, for Francis Kirkman and are to be sold at his shop, 1671. Small 4to, 175 x 125 mm, 6¾ x 5 inches, printed mainly in black letter, pages (2), 1 - 32, 49 - 96, 90 - 93, LACKING 2 LEAVES C2 AND C3, pagination is erratic but catchwords to the rest of the text follow on, as does the register, curiously the title page has been replaced by the title page of the second part, which was identical to that of the first part except for the words "The Second Part" placed after the title, bound in full antique calf, blind ruled panels to covers, gilt rules and raised bands, lacking spine label. Covers lightly scuffed, head and tail of spine and corners slightly rubbed, front inner paper hinge cracked but binding tight and firm, title page and first page of text dusty and slightly marked with ink, first 5 leaves have neat paper repairs to either a margin or the top corner, 4 further margin repairs further on, pages age browned throughout, some upper margins trimmed just shaving the running title, occasional pale staining and light damp staining, no loss of legibility, some old ink writing in a couple of places, small piece torn from 1 lower margin, tiny hole in text on 2 pages with loss of a couple of letters, still easily understandable. Binding tight and firm. A defective copy of Part I of a very scarce work, (lacking 2 leaves as noted). The source of this novel of knight errantry is one of the continuations of the Spanish medieval romance Amadis of Gaul. This one, Historia del valeroso e invencible Principe don Belianis de Grecia, is attributed to the Spanish writer Geronimo Fernandez and the earliest English translation of this popular romance appears to have been published in 1598. It was newly translated from either Spanish or an Italian version by Francis Kirkman and his version first published in 1664. Kirkman (1632 - c. 1680) appears in many roles in the English literary world of the second half of the seventeenth century, as a publisher, bookseller, librarian, author, translator and bibliographer. He was an enthusiast for popular literature and wrote and published romances of his own. He was also famous for one of the earliest circulating libraries which consisted of his collection of over 800 plays. His catalogues of plays constitute his most important contribution to literary history. Images sent on request.
