Blaeu Joannes edit.
1682. Raffigurazione del territorio del Piemonte caratterizzata da una incredibile decoratività. Infatti ai due lati, in una cascata di festoni ed emblemi, sono raffigurati numerosi putti alati; due di questi sorreggono il drappo sul quale è iscritto il titolo della carta. Cartograficamente risulta interessante segnalare l'individuazione del Monte Iseran con la Val di Cogna e la Val di Reme, correttamente posizionate rispetto alla città di Aosta. Singolare la presenza di un Monte Marzo in posizione errata rispetto alla Valle di Gressoney, ma corretta rispetto alle Valli del Biellese.

Er unternahm Versuche, die Verbrennung als allgemeine chemische Reaktion zu erklären und erkannte die Zunahme der Masse bei der Verkalkung (Oxidation) von Blei. Zwar glaubte er noch an die Transmutation der Metalle, doch verlor er sich nicht auf alchemistischen Irrwegen und trat für die nutzbringende Anwendung der Chemie in Handwerk und Gewerbe ein.

Célèbre utopie du 17è siècle qui se passe en AUSTRALIE. Voyage imaginaire en Australie, dont la première partie "History of Sevarites" fut publiée d'abord en anglais, à Londres en 1675. L'Histoire des Sévarambes est la plus achevée des utopies romanesques. Vairasse, huguenot français vivant à Londres, se présente comme l'éditeur du manuscrit du Capitaine Siden, ancien avocat, qui, après un nauvrage, aborde au pays Sévarambe, queque part dans les terres australes. Les Sévarambes vivent sous un régime politique idéal : l'héliocratie des Sévarambes, c'est en quelque sorte le prestige du Roi-Soleil plus la liberté de conscience. Avec de surcroit, pour le bonheur de tous, l'absence de propriété privée et de noblesse héréditaire (Utopie, Bnf 2000, p. 179-180). Cette oeuvre, assez hardie pour l'époque, fut proscrite en france. La vraisemblance du récit est obtenue par le recours à des récits de voyages réels, comme ceux de Pelsart, de Tavernier et de Garcilaso de la Véga (Barbier, II, 768 ; Versins, pp. 926-926 ; Trousseau, pp. 108-111 ; Robert, A Bibliography of Australia and the South Sea Islands, 918).
