Thevenot, Melchisedec [First Map of the Mississippi River].
The first separate map of the Mississippi River, in its very first publication. 1682. Paris. Louis Jolliet. 393 x 165 mm. Trimmed a little close at the bottom edge, with latitude numbers just touching the edge of the paper in a few places. 35,000 $ The First Map of the Mississippi River, based upon the cartographic renderings of Jolliet and Marquette, published in Thevenot’s Recueil de Voyages in 1682. It became the earliest separate map to depict the expedition of Louis Jolliet and Father Jacques Marquette down the Mississippi River. In 1663, the French government began a more systematized effort to search for furs, minerals, and a shorter route to China. The initial objective was locating the Mississippi River, whose existence was known through Indian reports. An expedition was sent out under the command of Louis Jolliet, a fur trader and explorer, and the Jesuit Father Jacques Marquette. Jolliet and Marquette left Green Bay in May 1673, and by following the courses of the Fox and Wisconsin rivers, reached the upper Mississippi River. Continuing south, they discovered the mouths of the Missouri, Ohio, and Arkansas rivers, before turning back out of fear of encountering a Spanish force. On the return trip, they found a short cut to Lake Michigan by following the Illinois and Des Plaines rivers to a portage at Chicago. Several manuscript maps survive based on the discoveries of the Jolliet and Marquette expedition. This map was first adapted for inclusion in Melchisedech Thevenot’s Recueil des Voyages, Paris, 1681. It shows for the first time on a printed map the Mississipp … [Click Below for Full Description]

1682. Plate: 'Een Messice / Mestice Vrouw'. (A Mestizo Woman.) This plate shows a woman of mixed ethnicity. Copperplate etching and engraving on verge type hand laid paper. Watermark present, but not visible on every sheet. Description: This rare original old antique print originates from the book: 'Gedenkweerdige Brasiliaense Zee en Lantreize .' by Johan Nieuhof, published by Jacob van Meurs, Amsterdam, 1682. First and only Dutch edition. Later amended English edition published by Churchill in 1744.Artists and Engravers: Johan / Jan / Johannes Nieuhof / Nieuhoff / Neuhof (1618-1672) was a Dutch traveler who wrote about his journeys to Brazil, China and India. The most famous of these was a trip of 2,400 km from Canton to Peking in 1655-1657, which enabled him to become an authoritative Western writer on China. Johan Nieuhof was born in Uelsen, Germany, of which his father (originally from Zwolle) was mayor. Nieuhof left for Brazil in 1640 as a reserve officer-candidate - from then on, barring two short family visits in 1658 and 1671, he spent all the rest of his life abroad. After an adventurous career in the service of the Dutch East India Company (or VOC) - between 1660 and 1667 he occupied posts in India and on Ceylon - he then lived in Batavia until 1670. He then disappeared without trace on Madagascar, traveling in a sloop from which he had landed to seek drinking water. The engravings are made after Nieuhoff's drawings. Condition: Fine; General age related toning and light staining from handling. A few small tears in the margins not affecting the image. Worm hole low … [Click Below for Full Description]

Blegny Nicolas de
sumptibus Leonardi Chouet & Soc, 1682. In 4°; due opere in un volume: 8 , 264 pp. e 4 c. di tav.; 153 (i.e. 155), 13 pp. e 2 c. di tav. (le due tavole del secondo volume si trovano erroneamente legate all'interno del primo volume che così contiene 6 tavole invece di 4 come attestato anche dalla didascalia esplicativa riportata nelle tavole stesse). Comunque i due volumi sono completi ed in buone condizioni di conservazione. Legatura novecentesca in cartoncino molle. Alcune leggere bruniture in alcune pagine dovute alla qualità della carta e presenti in tutte le copie di quest'opera. Minima mancanza all'angolo superiore bianco di pagina 59, 61 e di una tavola (ininfluenti). Prima edizione latina di quello che è considerato il primo periodico medico. L'opera vide pubblicati solo i primi 3 anni (qui sono presenti il secondo e terzo anno). Si dice che fu proprio lo "Zodiacus medico-gallicus" che diede a Bayle l'idea delle "Nouvelles de la Republique des Letteres". Inizialmente l'opera uscì il primo anno in francese con il titolo "Nouvelles découvertes sur toutes les parties de la médecine" ma ben presto venne prima tradotta in tedesco e poi in latino, unica lingua con cui proseguì la sua esistenza. Il latino permise infatti al periodico di uscire per altri due anni potendo raggiungere un pubblico più ampio di lettori. All'inizio di ogni capitolo presente inciso il segno zodiacale del mese di riferimento. Anche se l'esperienza dello Zodiacus fu breve esso aprì la strada alla pubblicazioni periodiche a carattere medico-divulgativo che caratterizzarono la fine del XVII° secolo e l … [Click Below for Full Description]

Andreas Vesalius (31 December 1514 – 15 October 1564) was an anatomist, physician, and author of one of the most influential books on human anatomy, De humani corporis fabrica (On the Fabric of the Human Body). Vesalius is often referred to as the founder of modern human anatomy. Vesalius is the Latinized form of Andries van Wesel. Vesalius was born to Andries van Wesele and Isabel Crabbe on 31 December 1514, in Brussels, then in the Habsburg Netherlands, to a family of physicians.

Wing D2311; CBEL II, 264; Macdonald 13aii; ESTC R17608. Dryden published early in 1682 The Medall, a work full of unsparing invective against the Whigs, prefaced by a vigorous and plainspoken prose “Epistle to the Whigs.” The opposition party (the nascent Whigs) had a medal struck in Poland to commemorate the release of one of their leaders, the Earl of Shaftesbury, who had been held in the Tower on charges of treason.

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.

Figures. Modern half brown morocco, marbled boards. Very good. RARE. FIRST PRINTED HYPOTHESIS ON THE WAVE THEORY OF LIGHT. First edition of this curious treatise on optics, sound, vision, refraction, color, and 'lumination,' incorporating Ignace Gaston Pardies' previously unpublished treatise on optics and based largely on Aristotelian principles. Divided into three parts: Contains the pt. I: On the properties of light and its movement; pt. II: Comments on vision, including correcting sight with glasses; pt. III: devoted to assisting and improving sight, magnifying glasses, theory of the telescope (p.[vi], 190, 281) and frequently refers to the microscope (pp. 99, 106-7, 180, 186-7, 190-1, 193, 198, 200, 237, 244-8, 251-2, 254, 256-7, 265-6, 280-2, 344-366, etc.). / Olivier Darrigol gives an assessment of the text: It is a work in defense of Aristotle's views against neo-atomism as describe by Gassendi and Maignan. Instead their study of sound and light is based on Aristotelian principles. "Ango/Pardies introduced the notion of undulation by means of the picture of a vibrating body that induced alternating compressions and dilations of the contiguous layer of air, followed by similar periodic deformation of the next layer. . ." (p. 61). They also "introduced some of the main properties of waves by means of the water-wave illustration." In "the case of sound, which they regarde … [Click Below for Full Description]

FIRST EDITION of this classic treatise on the art of astrology. "Its most important feature, however, is a fascinating section on electional astrology with much new and exciting material. Blagrave explains, for example, how to fit the chart to a particular person, in order to properly elect an auspicious time to assist or influence them." â€" Christopher Warnock. // Blagrave's work was a practical manual for applying astrological principles to everyday needs. It offered advice for when to do just about anything, giving "rules for knowing when to engage in a lawsuit, fight a duel, or propose marriage. By observing the masculine signs in the heavens it was possible to choose the appropriate moment for begetting a male child. John Case's instructions were attractively simple: 'If thou want'st an heir, or a man-child to inherit thy land, observe a time when the masculine planets and signs ascend, and [are] in full power and force, then take thy female, and cast in thy seed, and thou shalt have a man-child.' Mutatis mutandis, the same instructions were to be followed for a daughter'. . . Like other kinds of magic, the astrological election was … [Click Below for Full Description]
