Caramuel y Lobkowitz, Juan, Philosoph, Theologe, Astronom und Mathematiker (1606-1682).
1676. 1 S. auf gefalt. Bogen. Folio. Als Bischof von Vigevano in der Lombardei, an den Dominikaner Raimondo Capizucchi (1615-91), der seit 1654 das Amt des "maestro del sacro palazzo apostolico" bekleidete (und 1681 Kardinal wurde), in Zusammenhang mit der bevorstehenden Ernennung des Lorenzo Mayers Caramuel (1617-83) zum Bischof von Castellamare: "Son tantos los favores que V. S. R.ma ha hecho y haze siempre a Caramuel, que el por no ser ingrato, y viendo que en un sugeto no puede cumplir con lo mucho que debe, se multiplica para poder servir mejor en diversos suppuestos. Digolo, porque bessara la mano de V. S. R.ma Monsenor Laurecio Mayers Caramuel, nombrado obispo de Castelmar, para que V. S. R.ma le reciba en el numero de sus servidores, y lo comunique las gracias y favores que suele. En mi libro, que offrecera a V. S. R.ma conocera el mundo, que conosco la denda ya que es tanta que no la puedo reconoscer. Acabo rogando a Dios nos guarde y prospere la persona de V. S. R.ma [...]". Spätes Schreiben des bis zur Sprunghaftigkeit geistig wendigen Theologen und Ingenieurs. Böhmischer Abstammung und aus Madrid gebürtig, wirkte er u. a. in Löwen, Schottland, Wien und Prag, bevor er seinem Protektor Kardinal Chigi (nunmehr Papst Alexander VII.) nach Italien folgte. Auch Kaiser Ferdinand III. förderte ihn lange aufgrund seiner Kenntnisse in der Festungsbaukunst und seiner heroischen Verteidigung Prags gegen die Schweden im Jahre 1648; das Bistum Vigevano verdankte er der Intervention der Habsburger.

SPEED, John (1552 - 1629)
London: Bassett & Chiswell, 1676. Single sheet (15 x 20 inches) Full margins showing the plate mark (slight browning to edge, foxing). A handsome uncolored map of Montogmeryshire, as part of John Speed's famous Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine. The copper plates for this map were gngraved by Jodocus Hondius in his workshop in Amsterdam, resulting in a prime example of the level of craft and detail found in the Atlas. A title cartouche baring the royal coat of arms flanked by a set of hounds, introduce us to this stunning map of Montgomery Shire. A desirable and innovative aspect to Speed's maps are his town plan insets. Here we find the town of Montgomery laid out by John Speed himself, as indicated by the 'Scale of Pases'. This town plan was particularly mapped to the smallest details, such as the water well and towers. The key for his letter guide to the significant roads and buildings and Montgomery shield are also included. The coat of arms of Phillip Herbert, the 1st Earle of Montgomery, is showcased in the lower left corner. Philip was first given the title of 4th Earl of Pembroke and was the chief favorite of James I for many years. In 1605, King James I of England created him Earl of Montgomery and Baron Herbert of Shurland. In 1630, when he succeeded to the Earldom of Pembroke, the head of the Herbert family has carried the double title of Earl of Pembroke and Montgomery. The arms shown here are used for the representations of both titles. This edition of the map has the later addition of a strapwork frame, holding the text "Described by Christopher Sax … [Click Below for Full Description]

Welsch (Velschius), Georg Hieronymus (ed.).
1676. Small 4to. (14), 137, (19) pp. With engr. frontispiece and 22 engr. plates by Melchior Haffner. Contemporary calf. First facsimile edition of any oriental manuscript. 16 of the 22 finely engraved plates show a Persian perpetual calendar with Ottoman Turkish "commentarius" and floral borders. Welsch had acquired the ms. from Christoph Weikmann's Kunstkammer in Ulm. The remaining six plates are concerned with Arabian astronomy: astrolabe, orrery, zodiac, circular table of Sundays and names of the months in various languages. - The calculation of this calendar is today attributed to the 9th-c. Persian mathematician Wafâ al Buzjâni (cf. BSB München; Humboldt-Universität Berlin). The predominant attribution to one Turkish Sheikh Wafâ had been disputed by Babinger as early as 1927. Abu'l-Wafâ al Buzjâni is regarded as "the last great representative of the mathematics-astronomy school that arose around the beginning of the ninth century, shortly after the founding of Baghdad" (DSB I, 39). His astronomic oeuvre is preserved merely in fragments. The calligraphic commentary, however, is Turkish and (according to Babinger) was prepared by a 17th-c. magistrate, 'Ajn-i 'Alî Mueddinzâde. - Welsch (1624-77) was a physician and "a researcher of the very first magnitude [...] while the works of this polymath were mainly dedicated to the Arabian and Persian sciences, he also has provided proof of his close study of Ottoman Turkish. In this connexion, his important 'Commentarius in Ruzname Naurus' must be cited" (cf. Babinger 1919). Welsch's "Dissertatio" (with Arabic typeface) is aimed … [Click Below for Full Description]

Il lavoro di un gesuita oscurare che è l'unico libro, e che morì l'anno della sua pubblicazione, da l'anima degli animali è un lavoro sulla natura dell'anima, che unì le teorie di Cartesio su macchina uomo sulla dicotomia corpo-anima. Lorque Dilly troverà che i suoi presupposti simili a quelli di Cartesio, rimproverava per non aver considerato i pericoli di comprensione che non consentono l'automazione. Inoltre, i termini di apprendimento, come dato dall'autore saranno sviluppate solo nel XIX. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale. Reliure en pleine basane d'époque usagée. Coiffes arrachées. Coins émoussés. Oeuvre d'un obscure Jésuite dont c'est le seul ouvrage, et qui mourut l'année de sa publication, De l'âme des bêtes est un travail sur la nature de l'âme, qui rejoint les théories de Descartes sur l'homme machine et sur la dichotomie corps-âme. Lorque Dilly s'apercevra que ses hypothèses rejoignent celles de Descartes, il reprochera à ce dernier de ne pas avoir estimé les dangers d'une compréhension qui n'admet pas l'automatisme. Par ailleurs les termes de l'apprentissage tels que donnés par l'auteur seront développés seulement au XIXe. NB : Cet ouvrage est disponible à la librairie sur demande sous 48 heures.

Speed, John (1552-1629)
London: John Sudbury & George Humble, 1676. London: John Sudbury & George Humble. Speed, John (1552-1629) Single sheet (15 x 20 inches, full margins showing the plate mark, two repaired tears on bottom margin an inch either side of the crease line, condition commensurate with age). An appealing uncolored engraved map of Cambridge, stretching the border with Huntingdonshire in the west to Suffolk in the east. There is an expanded plan of the historic university town of Cambridge in the North West. The map was printed as part of Speeds revered atlas, 'Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine'. The map was part of the earliest English attempt at producing an atlas on a grand scale as part of 'The Theatre of the Empire of Great Britain', the work for which Speed is best known. This celebrated Atlas contained the first set of county maps consistently attempting to show the boundaries of territorial divisions and the first truly comprehensive set of English town plans-a notable contribution to British topography. After 15 years assembling the Atlas it was published to immediate success: three new editions and issues appeared during Speed's lifetime and the work remained popular into the eighteenth century. Indeed the maps of this Atlas remain one of the most popular with map collectors around the world. John Speed was born in the Cheshire village of Farndon and from his youth pursued his father's profession of tailoring. He later moved to London to continue this trade, though Speed's real passions lay elsewhere, namely in the fields of antiquity and cartography. He joined the Soc … [Click Below for Full Description]

After describing the rulers in the seven Anglo-Saxon kingdoms of England (Wessex, Sussex, Essex, Kent, East Anglia, Northumbria, and Mercia), Beer discusses the kings from Egbert to Harold II before devoting the remainder of his work to monarchs from William the Conqueror to Charles II, who are depicted on the accompanying plates together with their escutcheons and the dates of their reigns. Important epithets are given, such as 'Bellus Clericus' (Beauclerc) for Henry I, and 'Cor Leonis' (Lionheart) for Richard I, shown with a lion at his feet and a bolt in his shoulder. Beer (1638-1712) was something of an expert on European monarchs, also publishing works on the rulers of Austria, Hungary, Spain, Denmark, and Sweden. BL German 1601-1700, B613; VD17 23:312763A.

SPEED, John (1552 - 1629)
London: Bassett & Chiswell, 1676. Single sheet (15 x 20 inches) Full margins showing the plate mark (slight browning to edge, ink smear margin, top left corner torn) A handsome uncolored county map of Suffolk; taken from the famous Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine by English cartographer John Speed. The plates were engraved by Jodocus Honius in 1610, in Amsterdam. This map of Suffolk is the best available of the county; and Speed's maps are highly sought after due to their high level of accuracy, detail, and craftsmanship. Suffolk is an East Anglican county of great historic origin in England. It has borders with Norfolk, Cambridgeshire, and Essex. The North Sea lies to its east. The county is depicted as low-lying - with few hills and largely flat, arable land. The significance of this county is reflected in the admirable decorations on the map; such as the cartouches, sailing ship, figures, and a compass rose held by cherubim. The inset town plan of Ipswich is elegantly bordered and flanked by the images of the Roman general, Petillius Cerealis, on the left and the Queen of the Iceni, Boadicea, on the right. Ipswich has been known to be an occupied land since the Saxon period; and its port has been one of Britain's most important for the whole of its history. The plan is annotated with letters to describe the significant roads and buildings of the town; guided by a legend. This intricate plan was mapped by John Speed himself, as indicated by his signature 'Scale of Pases'. The left and right sides of the map are dictated to the coat of arms. The right bares the … [Click Below for Full Description]

SPEED, John (1552-1629)
London: Bassett & Chiswell 1676 - Single sheet (15 x 20 inches) Full margins showing the plate mark (small quarter inch tear on lower left, slight edge browning). An elegant map depicting the royal county of Yorkshire, including part of Westmore Land, Lancashire, Lincolneshire, and the Germain Ocean (today's North Sea). The map was printed from copper plates engraved by Jodocus Hondius in his workshop in Amsterdam in 1610. The upper right-hand corner of this map bares a detailed coat of arms used by King Charles the First. As King, Charles bore the royal arms undifferenced: quarterly, I and IV grand-quarterly: azure three fleurs-de-lis Or (for France) and Gules three lions passant guardant in pale Or (for England); II Or a lion rampant within a tressure flory-counter-flory Gules (for Scotland); III Azure a harp Or stringed Argent (for Ireland). The compass rose alongside it provides us with another striking example of Hondius' detailed aesthetic. "Performed by John Speede and are to be sold by Thomas Bassett in Fleet Street and by Richard Chiswell in St. Paul's Churchyard". The county maps found in the Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine were the first consistent attempt to show territorial divisions, but it was mainly Speed's town plans that were the major innovation and probably his greatest contribution to British cartography. Together, they formed the first printed collection of town plans of the British Isles and, for at least 50 of the 73 included in the Theatre, it was the first time these towns had been mapped. While being the first English atlas of the British … [Click Below for Full Description]

Folio (36.3 x 22.5 cm.), 2 folding letterpress tables, 77 engraved plates, lacking initial imprimatur leaf, browning to text leaves, title-leaf slightly frayed at fore-edge and with very small hole in centre, three plates with tears repaired, later vellum with arms tooled in blind on covers, a good example. "The Ornithologiæ libri tres (referred to as the Ornithology) is one of the first truly scientific ornithological texts. It was published four years after the death of Francis Willughby (1635–1672) by his friend and collaborator John Ray (1627–1705). These two natural historians had met at Trinity College Cambridge in the 1650s and spent time travelling around Britain and Europe collecting and observing nature. Previous works concerning birds typically contained information gleaned from earlier sources such as Aristotle and Pliny with extra comments by the author. These works would usually describe the birds, where they might be found, whether they were edible, if they had any medicinal value, and what their human traits and characteristics were (for example Wrens are viewed as brave while Finches are dim-witted). It was also not uncommon to find mythical and fabled birds such as the phoenix and griffin amongst the pages of such works. As the study of natural history progressed the standards of ornithological works improved but they still lacked sensible and coherent organisation. Birds tended to be grouped together by habitat and then by their actions. Walter Charleton's (1619–1707) system, explained in his Onomast … [Click Below for Full Description]

FRUGONI Francesco Fulvio.
Presso Combi, & La Noù, 1676. Opera completa in tre volumi. Cm.15,5x8,2. Pg.(20), 340; (VIII), 412; 360. Legature coeve, allentate, in piena pergamena semirigida con titoli manoscritti ai dorsi. Ad ognuno dei tre frontespizi marca calcografica con due mani che si stringono in bordura ornamentale sostenuta da due putti, ed il motto "Fides" in festone. Alcuni cartigli e capilettera incisi. Ascritto all'Ordine dei padri minimi di San Francesco di Paola, il Frugoni (Genova, 1620 - 1684 circa) studiò in Spagna agli atenei di Alcalà e di Salamanca. Attivo presso l'Accademia degli Addormentati, fu segretario particolare di Aurelia Spinola e compì studi di teologia alla Sorbona. La sua opera principale è "Il cane di Diogene", stampata postuma nel 1689. Scrisse anche alcuni melodrammi, rappresentati con successo in importanti teatri europei. E' considerato uno dei massimi esponenti della lirica seicentesca italiana, cimentandosi altresì, tra i primi, nel romanzo di ispirazione contemporanea. "E' stato definito un "rappresentante tipico della mondanità in veste fratesca, della più strabiliante virtuosità barocca nell'eloquenza, nel romanzo, nella critica, nel teatro" (Sofia Armanini). "La pubblicazione a Venezia della "Vergine parigina" (1661) contiene riferimenti autobiografici che suscitarono scandalo: il Frugoni venne esiliato da Genova e si trasferì a Parigi. L'esperienza vissuta in prima persona offre spunti e considerazioni per quest'opera che vuole celebrare in Aurelia, principessa di Francia secondo il martirologio gallicano, il mito della donna perseguitata ma nobile e pura. … [Click Below for Full Description]

BURTON, Robert [1577-1640]
Oxford: Printed for Peter Parker, 1676. Pp. 4 p.l., 46, [6], 434, [16] table, [2] ad. Complete with half-title, elaborate engraved title in compartments, including portrait of the author, signed C. Le Blon, woodcut headpieces and initials. With rare final leaf listing "Books printed for and sold by Peter Parker". Bound in recent polished calf, plain sides with edges of boards tooled in gilt, spine divided into 6 gilt-ruled compartments between raised bands, each compartment with elaborate gilt corner pieces surrounding central gilt arabesque, morocco label, gilt. Old ink signature on upper margin of title, some light damp-staining to early leaves, but otherwise a very good copy in a superb period style binding. Robert Burton's Anatomy of Melancholy was one of the most widely-read books of the seventeenth century. It was revered as much for its eloquence of style, as for its encyclopaedic learning on the subject of melancholy, a condition with which the author had a lifelong acquaintance. Dr. Johnson was a great admirer of Burton's work, praising it as "the only book that ever took him out of bed two hours sooner than he wished to rise". Laurence Sterne's Tristram Shandy was permeated with Burton's influence, but it was Charles Lamb's passionate devotion which did most to keep alive the memory of the "fantastic great old man" and his monumental work, a book that has been the constant companion of readers ever since. First published in quarto format in 1621, Burton's masterpiece was then reprinted several times in folio, the present Eighth Edition being the last of the 17th c … [Click Below for Full Description]

Robert Burton
Peter Parker, 1676. Frontespizio inciso, diviso in scomparti con paesaggi, figure allegoriche e i ritratti di Democrito Abderita e Democrito Junior, pseudonimo dell'autore. In appendice "Books printed for and sold by Peter Parker, at the Legg and Star right against the Royal Exchange in Cornhill". L'opera, pubblicata nel 1621, ebbe notevole successo tanto da veder ben sei edizioni entro il 1651, ognuna notevolmente accresciuta rispetto le edizioni precedenti. La riflessione di Burton sulla Melancolia, attribuita secondo le correnti teorie ad eccesso di bile e responsabile di passioni, disperazione d'amore, estasi mistiche ed eccessi maniacali, si svolge in un curioso linguaggio misto di ironia, erudizione, introspezione psicologica e sottile inquietudine di fronte ad una patologia depressiva che, secondo quanto l'autore suggerisce nella prefazione, aveva sperimentato personalmente. Il trattato è diviso in tre parti: la prima dedicata a cause e sintomi della melancolia, la seconda alla sua cura e la terza a quelle particolari tipologie che sono la Love-Melancholy, esaminata nelle sue cause, sintomi e cure, e la Religious Melancholy. Nella prefazione, ricca di humour, Democritus arriva a suggerire al lettore melanconico di non leggere il trattato per evitare un peggioramento delle sue condizioni: 'Yet one caution let me give by the way to my present or future reader, who is actually melancholy, that he read not the symptoms or prognostics in the following tract, lest by applying that which he reads to himself, aggravating, appropriating things generally spoken to his own per … [Click Below for Full Description]

SPEED, John (1552 - 1629)
London: Bassett & Chiswell 1676 - Single sheet (15 x 20 inches) Full margins showing the plate mark (slight browning to edge, foxing). An attractive uncolored 1676 edition map of the West Riding of Yorkshire. The map is a section of Speed's acclaimed Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine. Engraved by Jodocus Hondius in his workshop in Amsterdam, this map is a prime example of the level of craft and detail found in the Atlas. The West Riding of Yorkshire is elaborately detailed, touching its borders with Lancashire, Darbyshire, East Riding, Lincolneshire, and North Riding. A title cartouche and royal shield of James I dominate the presentation; further accented by seraphim presenting the scale of miles and the description belonging to the Earls coat of arms; as well as two hawks holding the shield of Yorkshire. The town plan of Yorke fills the upper right corner. The town is depicted with a letter guide corresponding to the significant roads and building found within Yorke. It is noteworthy to mention this town plan was mapped by Speed himself, as indicated by the 'Scale of Pases". The map is edged with the coat of arms of ruling Earls and Dukes of the West Riding. The arms belong to great royal men descend from Kings. Yorkshire was a noble county, and the rulers represented this most ardently. They include those of Charles, the second son of King James; and Henry, the second son of King Henry VII. The county maps found in the Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine were the first consistent attempt to show territorial divisions, but it was mainly Speed's town plans that w … [Click Below for Full Description]

SPEED, John (1552 - 1629)
London: Bassett & Chiswell, 1676. Single sheet (15 x 20 inches) Full margins showing the plate mark (watermark at middle top, slight browning and foxing to edge). A beautiful map showcasing the Isle of Wight, part of the county of Hampshire. The Isle is shown surrounded by the British Ocean, with a part of England at the map's left-hand corner. Engraved by Jodocus Hondius in his workshop in Amsterdam in 1610, this map is a prime example of the level of craft and detail found in the Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine. Hondius leaves no part of this stunning map uncovered; the British Ocean can be seen decorated with waves, ships, and sea monsters to make the best use of space. The Isle of Wight is elaborately decorated and filled with rolling hills, trees, and windmills. Most, but not all, of the county maps have town plans on them; those showing a 'Scale of Passes' being the places Speed had mapped himself. The map of Isle of Wight presents us with two such inset town plans. Southampton's bustling town plan includes its coat of arms; while Newport provides us with a more provincial cue with a shepherd and horse. The right-hand side of the map exhibits the crests of the Earls who reigned over the Isle of Wight since 1066. William FitzOsborne was given charge of Wight in 1066 by William the Conqueror. Richard [de Redvers] River, Earl of Devon, from 1155. Henry Beauchamp, King of Wight, is said to have been crowned King of the Isle of Wight in 1444 by Henry VI. The charge then passed to Richard Woodvill(e) in the late-1400s. "Describes by William White Gent. Augmen … [Click Below for Full Description]

SPEED, John (1552-1629).
John Sudbury & George Humble, London 1676 - Single sheet (15 x 20 inches, full margins showing the plate mark). A fine uncolored engraved map of Great Britain, stretching from the Scottish outer Hebrides in the north west to the coast of France in the south east. Each of the seven Anglo-Saxon kingdoms each decorated with its coat-of-arms are clearly shown on the map. The map was engraved by Jodocus Hondius who is noted for his skills in decoration as demonstrated by the elaborate cartouche and compass rose this map bares. Two columns of vignettes flank the map on each side: the left shows the first king of each Saxon region; the right shows the conversion or their successors to Christianity - through violence, inspiration, debate and sermons. This map strikes a pleasing balance between the scientific techniques of the time and a historical artistic license. The map was part of the earliest English attempt at producing an atlas on a grand scale as part of Speeds 'The Theatre of the Empire of Great Britain'. This well-known Atlas contained the first detailed maps of the provinces of Ireland, the first set of county maps consistently attempting to show the boundaries of territorial divisions, and the first truly comprehensive set of English town plans-a notable contribution to British topography. They were an immediate success: three new editions and issues of each appeared during Speed's lifetime, and a miniature version was first published about 1619-20. This particular map is a fine example of the array of illustrative features and cartographic detail for which Speed, a wel … [Click Below for Full Description]

Tra i commenti pià interessanti riportiamo quello del Salfi, uno storico francese del tempo: "...voulant amures ses contemporains, il imita la forme de son modèle Ferrante Pallavicino, mais non sans license... Celano, s'étant amusé à parcourir son pays, il a trouvé des lettres contenant des nouvelles la déscription de quelques usages curieux alors en viguer dans son pays; elles pourraient etre consultées avec fruit par ceux qui aiment à recueillir les couleurs locales des siècles passés, et sourtout par ceux qui souvent se plaignent de la génération du notre".
