MEYER Cornelio
nella Stamperia del Lazzari Varese 1685 In folio (mm. 395x250), 2 opere in 1 vol., p. pelle bazana coeva (antiche scritte a mano e piccole macchie ai piatti), dorso a cordoni con tit. oro, 91 cc.nn. + 15 pp.num. (per l?aggiunta di ONORATI Fr. Maria ?Sac. Congreg. Riparum Tyberis Romana Remunerationis pro illustriss. D. Cornelio Meyer Memoriale?. Romae, Typ. Rev. Cam. Apost., 1685). Testo ornato da grandi capilett., fregi e finali inc. su legno. Dediche al Papa Innocenzo XI e ai Card. Azzolini e Colonna ?Deputati sopra la Navigatione nuova del Tevere?. L?opera è superbamente illustrata da: una grande incisione con figure allegoriche alla dedica e da una serie di 68 incisioni in rame, di notevole qualità per la finezza del disegno e dell?esecuzione. Le figure occupano per lo più lo spazio di metà pagina; 1 è a p. pag. (Colonna Traiana) e 4 a doppia pag. (pianta di Pisa, paludi Pontine, veduta di Piazza del Popolo, veduta di S. Pietro); di particolare interesse sono le figure a soggetto tecnico, come pure la pianta a volo d?uccello di Ancona, il territorio di Fano e di Pisa; magnifiche sono le vedute di Roma (quella di Piazza del Popolo è anche un prezioso documento urbanistico perchè è raffigurata così com?era prima che venisse attuato il progetto del Valadier). Tutto l?affascinante apparato iconografico fu ideato dal Meyer ed in parte dal suo amico e conterraneo B. Denner ed inciso da svariati artisti, quali B. de Ballin, I. Blondeau, Io. Collin, G.B. Falda, Gaspar van Wittel. L?Indice registra al fine - come tav. XVI - quella della Cometa di Halley, della cui esistenza s … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hardcover. 168 x 95 mm (6 5/8 x 3 3/4"). 16 p.l., 225, [1] pp., plus 13 pp. of ads at the back (also with two loose leaves from the end of Boyle's "Short Memoirs for the Natural Experimental History of Mineral Waters" [published 1684] laid in at front, and five leaves of ads from that work bound in before A1 here.). FIRST EDITION. Pleasing recent retrospective unlettered dark polished calf, raised bands. Rear flyleaf with seven lines of handwritten notes in red or purple ink. Fulton 166; Heirs of Hippocrates 366; Norman 306; Osler 949; Waller 1391; Wellcome II, 224; Wing B-4013. Frequent faint browning, occasional minor foxing, isolated corner creases, one tiny round wormhole in bottom margin, but still an excellent copy (especially for a cheaply made book like this), the text quite clean and fresh, and the binding unworn. These two treatises represent the efforts of the foremost scientist of the day to inject some theoretical science into what was then the practical art of medicine. The first treatise sets forth six propositions, with accompanying experiments" that describe Boyle's theories about the effects of certain medicines on the body. The second part is a plea for physicians to stop prescribing extremely complicated concoctions (some containing 20 ingredients) to treat their patients. However, Boyle does endorse the medieval belief in the healing powers of gems and stones from the heads of snakes. The youngest of the 14 children of the earl of Cork, Robert Boyle (1627-91) in 1660 published "New Experiment … [Click Below for Full Description]

Georgio Bullo [George Bull]
Oxonii-Theatro Sheldoniano. Book. A scarce first edition of George Bulls's treatise in defence of the ante-Nicene church fathers. George Bull (16341710) was an English theologian and Bishop of St David's. He was born, 25 March 1634, in the parish of St. Cuthbert, Wells, and educated in the grammar school at Wells, and then at Blundell's School in Tiverton under Samuel Butler. Before he was fourteen years old he went into residence at Exeter College, Oxford, where he became a friend of Thomas Clifford. In 1649, his tutor Baldwin Ackland refused to take the engagement, and together they left the university and settled at North Cadbury in Somerset. He wrote four major theological treatises in Latin, one on justification and three on the Trinity. Bull wrote the Defensio fidei Nicenae in 1680 to defend himself against the charge of Socinianism. Though three publishers refused to publish the work, William Jane, regius professor of divinity at Oxford, convinced Bishop Fell to intervene and have it published in 1685. Despite the delay in publication, it received the endorsement of Jacques-Benigne Bossuet, the Gallican bishop of Meaux, and the acclamation of his English colleagues, making the work the standard defence of Nicene orthodoxy. With bookplate to front pastedown of one Thomas N. Parker, and an attractively engraved title page. Condition: In a calf binding. Externally, rather worn with repairs to leather at corners. Joints cracked. Internally, firmly bound, generally bright and clean but with the occasional spot and mark. Overall: GOOD. Good. [Attributes: First Edition; Har … [Click Below for Full Description]

In the late sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, two competing theories were put forth to account for the source of all of the water in the oceans and rivers of the world. In his Discourse admirables of 1580, the French Huguenot Bernard Palissy maintained that rainfall alone is the sole source of that vast flood, falling on mountains then flowing through cracks in the ground until, diverted by some obstruction, it bubbles to the surface as springs, flowing ultimately into rivers and then oceans. Almost 100 years later, in 1664, following the suggestion of Descartes, the Jesuit philosopher Athanasius Kircherin, in his Mundus subterraneus (“Subterranean World”), posited the idea of a great subterranean sea supplying water to the oceans through the action of tides pumping sea water through hidden channels to points of outlet … [Click Below for Full Description]

[De Soto]. [Citri de la Guette, Samuel de Broe].
First French edition, and amongst the earliest available, of Soto?s exploration of Southern United States. 1685. Paris. Denys Thierry. In 8vo. 12 ff. + 300. Contemporary French speckled calf, raised bands to spine, tooled in gilt, red morocco title label lettered; joints renewed, else fine. Title page with minor mainly marginal toning, scattered leaves present minor toning but overall very good. First French edition of the Relacam Verdadeira ?first published in 1557, which is known in a single copy. A rare book consisting of the anonymous eyewitness? account of De Soto?s expedition to Florida ad the Southern United States. Furthermore, the work includes the dramatic tale of Juan Ortiz, a member of the Narvaez expedition captured by the Indians and rescued by De Soto. The anonymous Portuguese original is a known in a single copy and is found at the NYPL. This is the first translation into French, made by the 17th century French historian Citri de la Guette, to compete with the later Florida del Ynca of Garcilasso de la Vega (published in Lisbon in 1605), considering this less well-known and historically more accurate ?and considering the contemporaneity a consistent argument- relation was due for notoriety. It is the basis and inspiration for the English translation of the following year "A relation of the invasion and conquest of Florida by the Spaniards" (1686).

The date is approximate. Numerous biblical vignettes, some with Hebrew lettering. This was done for a Dutch bible, this one published by Visscher in Amsterday. Shirley's entry 457 is a similar map but without the Visscher imprint (and this issue does not have the tabular information in the lower central area. North America is labeled with "Japhet," and "Eden" is shown towards the cetner of the depiction of Asia. The vignettes are quite decorative.

SHAKESPEARE, WILLIAM
London: Printed for H. Herringman, E. Brewster, and R. Bentley. 4th Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. THE 1685 FOURTH FOLIO OF SHAKESPEARE: A very good, complete, exceptionally tall copy. A Shakespeare folio represents one of the highest points of collecting in the English language. The first folio, published in 1623 (now virtually unobtainable), is the first complete collection of Shakespeare's plays; without it, the English-speaking world would have little or no record of many of the greatest and most influential works in the Western world.  Three seventeeth-century folio editions followed: The Second Folio, 1632; The Third Folio, 1663-64; The Fourth Folio, 1685. The rarity of Shakespeare folios available for private purchase in recent years is well-documented. Harold M. Otness, in his 1990 census of Shakespeare folios, explains: "The number of copies of each edition printed is lost, but speculation puts the press runs at several hundred copies each... American institutions hold at least 561 copies of the four editions combined, which may constitute as many as half of the extant copies worldwide." In the last century there has been a steady transfer of folios from private hands to public libraries and institutions as many try to complete "sets" of the four folios, or recognize the necessity of owning a folio to anchor any collection of English language and literature. The opportunity for a private individual to own a folio is becoming increasingly scarce.  THIS COPY OF THE FOURTH FOLIO IS IN VERY GOOD CONDITION: The Shakespeare folios are notoriously poorly-printed and, … [Click Below for Full Description]

Gaspar Adriaensz van Wittel detto VANVITELLI (Amersfoort 1653 ? Roma 1736)
Acquaforte, 1685, firmata in lastra in basso a sinistra. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con sottili margini, lievi restauri alla piega centrale perfettamente eseguiti, per il resto in perfetto stato di conservazione.

Joachim von SANDRART (Francoforte 1606 - Norimberga 1688)
Serie completa di quattordici tavole sulle fontane di Frascati, riprese da quelle incise da Giovanni Battista Falda che fu il primo a raffigurare i giochi e i "teatri" delle acque presenti nei parchi delle ville Aldobrandini, Ludovisi e Borghese. Le tavole sono in controparte rispetto alle vedute del Falda; il Sandrart si avvalse dei suoi collaboratori Hans Ulrich Frank, Johannes Meyer e Suzanne Marie von Sandrart che le riprodussero accompagnandole con didascalie bilingui in tedesco e latino. Incisioni in rame, in eccellente stato di conservazione. Dimensioni 330x230 circa A complete series of fourteen plates depicting the fountains in Frascati, inspired to Giovanni Battista Falda?s works, the first to depict the fountains and the water ?theatre? in the gardens of the Aldobrandini, Ludovisi and Borghese villas. The plates are the counterparts of Falda?s ones; in his job, Sandrart was helped by Hans Ulrich Frank, Johannes Meyer and Suzanne Marie von Sandrart, who reproduced the plates adding also bilingual captions, in Latin and German. Engraving, in excellent condition. Dimensions 330x230 circa. Norimberga Nurnberg

Redi Francesco
in Firenze, per Pietro Matini all'Insegna del Lion d'Oro, 1685. 1685 In-4° (252x172mm), pp. (8), 264, legatura antica p. pergamena rigida con titolo e filetti oro su tassello al dorso. Tagli rossi. Frontespizio in rosso e in nero con emblema della Crusca. Il testo del poemetto giunge fino alla p. 46; il resto del volume è occupato dalle amplissime annotazioni del Redi stesso. Indice alle pp. 231 e sgg. Manca il ritratto, presente solo in rari esemplari. Ottimo esemplare. Prima edizione. Nel ditirambo, constante di 980 versi in vario metro, il Redi immagina che Bacco, con il suo corteo e con Arianna, si fermi sul Poggio Imperiale di Firenze per intessere l'elogio del vino in genere e dei singoli vini toscani. Il poema è pieno di invettive contro chi ama bere il caffè, la birra ("la squallida cervogia"), il sidro e, soprattutto, l'acqua. "Oltre l'esser questa un'eccellente poesia ditirambica, ha ancor il pregio di darci la notizia de' piu' celebrati Vini Toscani al tempo dell'Autore, e le note son piene di erudizione analoga all'argomento" (Lastri). L'opera, cui lo stesso De Sanctis riconosceva naturalezza di movenze, elegante fattura e brio d'immaginazione, venne largamente imitata da numerosi poeti, tra cui anche Carlo Porta e Giovanni Meli.

LISTER, M.
London, by the author, 1685-1692. Small folio (296 x 205mm). Leaves 667 with 976 engravings almost all before letters and mostly without the decorative borders, including engraved titles and engraved section titles, etc. 18th century green morocco, richly gilt ornamented spine in 6 compartments, sides with gilt corner pieces and borderlines, gilt edges. Early proof plates of Lister's famous work on shells and described by Wilkens as 'the true First Edition'. 'At intervals he would gather together sets of prints and give copies to his friends as an earnest of his progress, thus creating a confusing series of volumes, in which no two copies seemed to be alike' (Keynes p. 24). The title is different from the first collected edition which reads as follows: 'Historiae sive synopsis methodicae conchyliorum'. Our copy agrees with Keynes 45: "Lister seems to have distributed more copies of this form of the proofs.... Wing records nine with this title-page, not including the one in the Cambridge University Library". Keynes lists his own copy with 290 leaves. Our copy has almost as many leaves as the copy in the Cambridge University Library which seems to have 678 leaves and like our copy has the Appendix to Lib. IV. "In fact it seems that Lister distributed more than ten sets of prints under the title 'Historiae Conchyliorum'" (Keynes p. 24). The impressions of the engravings are sharp and clear as to be expected with an early state of the plates. The first collected edition has 490 leaves with 1084 engravings and is likewise dated 1685-1692, but was not published before 1697. These … [Click Below for Full Description]

Obetydligt bläckkludd på titelbladet vilket i likhet med det nästföljande bladet har minimala lagningar i yttermarginalerna. Det tredje bladet med ersatt nedermarginal. Små fläckar i texten och i marginalerna, t.ex. i övre marginalen på s. 23-38. Litet hål i övre marginalen på s. 85. Enstaka roande marginalanteckningar i bläck från 1700-talets första hälft.

Guillaume de Salluste du Bartas och i synnerhet dansken Anders Arrebo. Spegel, född i Skåne, var föga förvånande danskorienterad men tog ovanligt nog intryck också från engelskt kulturliv. "Gudz werk och hwila" har likheter med Miltons "Paradise lost" (1667), något som föranlett litteraturhistoriker att kalla "Gudz werk och hwila" den första influensen av Miltons epos på kontinentens litteratur. Samtidigt är verket lärdomshistoriskt intressant då det söker ge en bild av hela skapelsen, en skapelse som fortfarande var under upptäckt: "Jag skal likwäl rätt nu om andra saker röra/ så framt man tåleligt tekz blotta nampnen höra / om giraf, hwilket diur iag fuller intet kenner/ men andra säya thet uti Jamaica renner"

TAYLOR, Brook.
First edition of Taylor's important work on perspective, here bound with its second edition which contains significant new material. "Despite the impulses he received from other mathematicians, Taylor's contribution to the theory of perspective remains highly original. He plucked from the works of others the ideas that were mathematically the most fruitful, and taking these as a starting point, he built up a theory that was far more general, comprehensive and systematic than anything seen before" (Andersen, p. 498).<br/><br/> "Like all Taylor's writing, his book on linear perspective was so concise that Bernoulli characterized it as "abstruse to all and unintelligible to artists for whom it was more especially written." Even the second edition, which nearly doubled the forty-two pages of the first, showed little improvement in this matter. Its effect, nevertheless, was very substantial, since it passed through four editions, three translations, and twelve authors who prepared twenty-two editions of extended expositions based on Taylor's concepts. He developed his theory of perspective in a formal and rigorous fashion in a sequence of theorems and proofs. The most outstanding and original of his ideas in this field were his definition and use of vanishing points and vanishing lines for all lines and planes, and of his development of a theory and practice for the inverse problem of perspective that later served as a basis for work by Lambert and for the development of photogrammetry. Taylor also made free use of the idea of associating infinitely distant points of intersectio … [Click Below for Full Description]

[FALCONER, JOHN]. - [THE FIRST ADEQUATE ENGLISH HANDBOOK OF CRYPTOLOGY]
London, Daniel Brown, 1685. Small8vo. Bound to style in a later very nice full sprinckled calf with small embossed vignettes to corners of front and back boards. Embossed lines to edges of boards and six compartments to spine. Red leather title label with gilt lettering to spine. Title-page with a few small nicks to right margin, not affecting text. Light soiling throughout. A fine and attractive copy. (24), 180 pp.. Rare first edition of Falconer's book on cryptography which constitutes the first adequate English handbook of cryptology; it furthermore seems to present the earliest illustration of keyed columnar transposition. It is the second English publication on the subject but the first work containing practical information. "The second English book on the subject excelled, and its high quality is all the more surprising when one considers that John Falconer had written Cryptomenysis Patefacta in France some thirty years before its first publication in 1685." (Leeuw, The history of Information Security, p. 303). It has been stated that Falconer was greatly influenced by John Wilkins's Mercury [1641], the first English work on the subject. This is, however, not entirely true; Wilkins' work has "a certain air of unreality" about it; he borrowed knowledge from earlier volumes and puffed it out with his own hypothesizing, which seems never to have been deflated by contact with the bruising actuality of solving cryptograms that he himself had not made up. Up until Falconer the literature was all theory and no practice (Kahn, The Code Breakers, P. 156)."Falconer also gave wh … [Click Below for Full Description]

WALLIS, John.
"Wallis' last great mathematical book was <i>Treatise of Algebra, Both Historical and Practical</i> (1685), the fruit of many years' labor. As its title suggests, it was to combine a full exposition of algebra with its history, a feat never previously attempted by any author. The book was Wallis' only major mathematical work to be published in the vernacular ...<br/><br/> "Of the 100 chapters, the first fourteen trace the history of the subject up to the time of Viète, with emphasis on the development of mathematical notation ... <br/><br/> After an insertion concerning the application of algebra to geometry and geometrical interpretations of algebraic facts (chapters 64 - 72, including an attempt to give a representation of imaginary numbers), Wallis devoted the final twenty-eight chapters to a subject that one would hardly look for in a book on algebra today: a discussion of the methods of exhaustion and of indivisibles, again with reference to the <i>Arithmetica infinitorum</i> [1656]. Thus the new methods were still considered as an extension of an old subject rather than as a wholly new field of mathematics.<br/><br/> "The <i>Algebra</i> also includes an exposition of the method of infinite series and the first printed account of some of Newton's pioneering results. Wallis had long been afraid that foreigners might claim the glory of Newton's achievements by publishing some of his ideas as their own before Newton himself had done so. He therefore repeatedly warned his younger colleague at Cambridge not to delay but to leave perfection of his methods to later editions . … [Click Below for Full Description]
