[Gentleman of Elvas]
Paris: Denys Thierry, 1685. [24],300pp. 12mo. Contemporary speckled calf, spine gilt extra. Corners bumped and rubbed. Contemporary bookplate on front pastedown, later bookplates on rear pastedown. Internally clean. Near fine. The first available edition of this extremely important narrative, preceded by the 1557 original (of which only four copies are known), and two issues published by Richard Hakluyt in 1609 and 1611, in English. The identity of the Gentleman of Elvas has remained a mystery. His narrative is the primary source for information concerning the De Soto expedition of 1539-43, the first investigation by Europeans of the southeast region of the United States. De Soto landed on the west coast of Florida in 1539, marching north through Georgia and west to Mobile Bay. His party reached the Mississippi River in 1541 and went perhaps as far as the present Oklahoma-Arkansas border. Returning east, De Soto died and was buried in the Mississippi. The survivors floated to the Gulf and made it to Mexico. SABIN 24864. SERVIES 218. PALAU 256843. CLARK I:8. JCB (2)II:1324.

ARCHIMEDES
Woodcut printer's device on title, numerous woodcut illus. in the text, & a woodcut vignette on verso of final leaf. Title printed in red & black. 4 p.l., 296 pp. Folio, cont. vellum over boards (first four leaves with some light browning & staining). Palermo: C. Hesperi, 1685. First edition of Maurolico's important edition of Archimedes' works, based upon an earlier partial edition by Borelli (Messina: 1670-72), which was almost completely lost.Maurolico's edition was largely prepared in 1534 and 1547-50 and remained in manuscript for many years after his death. Maurolico's "method of redaction is suggested in the preface. After enumerating and summarising Archimedes' works, Maurolico states that he has tried to make the works more easily intelligible by adding many lemmas, by demonstrating many things omitted by Archimedes, and by treating of the centres of gravity of solids...Maurolico does not hesitate to re-arrange Archimedes' master work, the De Sphaera et Cylindro, often substituting what he claims to be a better proof or enunciation for that of the original...It is, however, in the De Aequeponderantibus that Maurolico makes his most drastic re-arrangement of the Archimedean material and also his most important contributions to mathematics... "Maurolico organises the treatise (which he calls De Momentis Aequalibus) and his own additions into four books. The first deals with general principles relating to centres of gravity and equilibrium. The following three books concern the determination of centres of gravity in plane figures; paraboloids; and spheres, p … [Click Below for Full Description]

With a tear into one figure in one of the folding plates repaired, a tear along the plate edge of the engraved title-page and occasional marginal tears, but otherwise a good copy and with generous margins.
