         World Map

      Sebastian Fernandez de Medrano. unbound. Map. Engraving with original hand coloring. Image measures 7.5" x 11.25". Page measures 10.25" x 13". Map cut to neat line and affixed to page. Stamp on verso. Map. Engraving with original hand coloring. Image measures 7.5" x 11.25". Page measures 10.25" x 13". Map cut to neat line and affixed to page. Stamp on verso. This fascinating double-hemisphere world map speaks to the progress of Spanish empire in the late 17th century, both geographically and intellectually. Produced within the context of attempts to revive the empire's military power through the application of science, the map employs symbolic imagery and language to suggest Spain's return to dominance. A regal lion presides over the two hemispheres, draped with a ribbon that advises its reader in Latin to "temper his nobility with natural fierceness": in short, to be willing to work hard for success. Fernández de Medrano served, as director of the aforementioned Academy, considerable activity, dedicating himself, as he himself says, "to more amplify the faculty to print various works of fortification, geometry, formation of battalions, use and practice of artillery and mortars and with time geography and navigation, and all at the expense of the poor patrimony of my wife and both number of engineers were created". Under the direction of Fernández de Medrano, which he held until his death, the Academy of Brussels became a prestigious military training center.His works include a Spanish version of "many curious propositions elevated" Euclid's elements; artillery: practical gunner, reprinted with the gunner consolidated under the title of the bombardment perfecto and practical text, the latter reprinted several times; a great fortification Treaty titled the perfect architect in the military art, composed of five books, of which the fifth refers to "geometry, trigonometry and rule of proportion" and several works of geography, among which the most important is geography, or modern description of the world, printed with plates in Brussels in 1686. Having been burned much of the Edition in 1697, reprinted it augmented and enriched with 34 maps in 1700, re-edited several times. Clear and methodical, although uneven, the geography of Fernández de Medrano is perhaps the best text of the discipline of the Spain of these years, representing real progress over the previous ones; However, its author is declared contrary to the Copernicus system. Richard Collins (1626, Luxembourg - 1698, Brussels), was the Court engraver for Charles II of Spain. Rare.

         Circolo elettorale dell Rheno

      Artist: Cantelli da Vignola Giacomo (d) ; issued in: Rome; date: (d)1686 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 57 x 42; - description: Map shows the River Rhine; - vita of the artist: Giacomo Cantelli da Vignola (1643 - 1695) was an important Italian cartographer and engraver Cantelli was born in Montorsello, near Vignola Italy to a prominent local family. After studying literature at the University of Bologna, Cantelli took a position as secretary to the Marquis Obizzi de Ferrara. Eventually Cantelli relocated to Venice where developed an interest in cartography. He later traveled to Paris in the company of the French ambassador where became acquainted with the French cartographer Guillaume Sanson, as well as his contemporaries Jacques-Andre Duval and Michel-Antoin Baudrand. It was most likely the influence of these innovative French cartographers that inspired Cantelli's careful and meticulous approach, in which he based his cartography not just on earlier maps, but also very much in the French style upon accounts written by travelers and merchants regarding actual travel to foreign lands. Back in Italy, Cantelli took service Count Rinieri Marescotti, with whom he traveled extensively throughout Italy, becoming in the process acquainted with the Italian publisher Giovanni Giacomo de Rossi. It is with Rossi that Cantelli began officially publishing his maps. The earliest maps to bear the Cantelli-Rossi imprint date to 1672 and detail the Holy Land, Persia, and the Ottoman Empire. Around 1680 the duo also began to publish the Mercurio Geografico, a large format atlas illustrating all parts of the world in a splendid Italian baroque detail defined by elaborate finely engraved cartouche work, high quality paper, and bold Roman lettering, and dark rich inks. Some have compared his style go that of Giovanni Antonio Magini, another Italian cartographer of the previous generation. Cantelli da Vignola in fact pioneered the Italian style of fine bold engraving that would eventually be embraced and expanded upon by Vincenzo Coronelli. His work drew the attention of Pope Innocent XI and Reggio Francesco II d'Este, the Duke of Modena, both of whom offered him a position as court geographer. Cantelli chose to work with the Due of Modena, in the service of whom he produced numerous maps and well as two large globes.

Y esa llamada sigue siendo un misterio, como lo es su vida antes de esa convocatoria. ¿Quién y por qué convocó como élève (adjunto) a Mariotte, que ni era profesor ni había publicado ninguna obra científica ni de ningún otro tipo antes de esa fecha? Se ignora. Pero parece claro, sin embargo, que acertó, porque en los casi 20 años siguientes hasta su muerte se mostró como un gran físico capaz de proponer los mejores análisis a partir de los experimentos más certeros.Este 'Traité du mouvement des eaux et des autres corps fluides' cargado de voluntad práctica que fue la última de sus obras y quedó sin publicar por su fallecimiento, vio la luz por los desvelos de Philippe de la Hire, también miembro de la Académie des sciences, que recibió tal encargo de Mariotte cuando estaba en su lecho de muerte. En el Traité, Mariotte ofrece una presentación de la naturaleza de los diferentes fluidos, titulada "De las diferentes propiedades de los gases, del origen de las fuentes y de las causas de los vientos", para poder dar paso a lo que hoy llamaríamos ingeniería de fluidos, con cuatro partes dedicadas, respectivamente, al equilibrio de los cuerpos fluidos, a la forma de medir el borboteo y las corrientes de agua, a la altura de los chorros y a la canalización de aguas (y las resistencias ofrecidas sus canalizaciones), asunto este último que concluye con soluciones concretas para la distribución de agua corriente en una población. Es, pues, un efectivo ejemplo de la concepción de la ciencia al servicio del progreso con la que se ha caracterizado los siglos XVIII y XIX, pero que nació rotundamente en el XVII.

Schrifft, der Grossen und Kleinen Welt.

      - O.O. u. Dr. (Amsterdam, Wolters), 1686. Emblematisches Titelkupfer, 14 Bl., 820 S., 8 Bl. Pergament d. Zeit (angestaubt u. fleckig). Erste Ausgabe. Sclei war ein Zeitgenosse Jacob Böhmes. Die Einzeltitel seiner hier versammelten Schriften tragen den Vermerk: Geschrieben 1596 in Klein-Polen. Die Vorrede stellt Bartholomäus Sclei konfessionsübergreifend in die Tradition der christlichen Mystik: Gottfried Arnold zitiert längere Passagen dieses "tiefsinnigen Mysticus" in seiner Kirchen- und Ketzerhistorie. Der Kern von Scleis Mystik ist der "Christus in uns", bzw. die Vereinigung der Seele mit Christus und daraus folgend das "innere Wort", wozu seine Schriften nur eine Hilfestellung sein wollen. Scharf wendet er sich gegen die damalige Streittheologie: "Gottes Wort kan Niemand als Gott selbst reden; wenn die Priester solches ohne Gottes Geist nachäffen . das ist nur ein Affenspiel . Es suchen diese Kirchen-Teuffel und Menschen-Fresser ein jeder seine Secte und Kirchenhauffen groß zu machen, damit sie nur ihren Sack voll bekommen und genug zu fressen haben" (S. 281 f.). Herausgeber war der nach Holland emigrierte Spiritualist und Kirchenkritiker Friedrich Breckling. Die Sammlung enthält 1. das dreiteilige umfangreiche Werk der "Anstehenden Allgemeinen Gottes-Lehr" (Vom dreifachen Lebensbuch; Vom hell-leuchtenden Aufgang des hochmächtigen Lichtes Gottes oder Was die lebendige Erkenntnis Gottes sei; Von Adams Fall und dessen Herstellung); 2. Die "Allgemeine Buß-Rede" oder wie man das Leiden Christi betrachten solle in allen Dingen; und 3. eine "Geheime Betrachtung" des Vaterunsers samt 16 geistlichen Betrachtungen unterschiedlicher hoher und geheimer Glaubens-Lehren. Diese letztere Schrift war bereits einmal (1636) von dem Böhme-Biographen Abraham v. Franckenberg veröffentlicht worden. - VD 17 3:611931D oder 3:301680C; Jantz 195; Bruckner 548; Dünnhaupt (Franckenberg) 11.2; Ackermann II, 668: "sehr selten". - Leicht gebräunt u. teilw. etwas wasserrandig.

This siege, organized by Pope Innocent XI during the Great Turkish War. The Battle of Buda in 1686, which followed the Battle of Vienna, was the downfall of the Buda (modern day Budapest). This siege was the start of a massacre of Jews and Muslims in the Middle East. Jews and Turks alike fought together during the Turkish War, but the Christian imperial troops killed thousands of Turks and Jews when the Reformed Hungarian Protestants wanted a complete eradication of Jews from Hungary. One Protestant account from the events says: “Not even the babies in their mother's wombs were spared. All were sent to their deaths. I was quite horrified by what was done here. Men were far more cruel to each other than wild beasts.” (Johann Dietz).

First edition of the first work; second [?] edition, not listed in ESTC, of second work. William Molyneux (1656–1698), experimental philosopher and constitutional writer, born in Dublin has a claim to be considered the founder of modern science in Ireland. In October 1683 he set himself the task of forming a society in Dublin on the design of the Royal Society. As first secretary and treasurer he conducted correspondence and exchanged minutes with the Royal Society and its sister society at Oxford. He took an active part in the proceedings of the society, elucidating discoveries, demonstrating experiments and instruments, discussing books, showing curious objects, undertaking the calculation of solar and lunar eclipses, and recording weather data. In the summer of 1685 Molyneux visited his brother Sir Thomas Molyneux, then a graduate medical student at Leiden, and they undertook a three-month tour of the Netherlands and the Rhineland, ending up in Paris. They visited Christiaan Huygens at The Hague, Antoni van Leeuwenhoek at Delft, and Jean-Dominique Cassini at Paris. In September Molyneux spent two or three weeks in London and was invited to Greenwich by Flamsteed. He also took the opportunity to commission an instrument maker, Richard Whitehead, to make a combined dial and telescope. Although the instrument never performed well, Molyneux demonstrated it to the Dublin society, claiming it had improved the art of dialling by application of telescopic sights, and in 1686 he published the present book describing it. John Twysden (1607–1688), physician, had a keen interest in mathematics. Twysden's first work, in collaboration with Edmund Wingate, was published in London in 1654: it was an edition of Samuel Foster's Elliptical, or Azimuthal Horologiography. In 1659 he published the residue of Foster's papers, with some mathematical essays of his own, in a folio volume entitled Miscellanea, sive, Lucubrationes mathematicae. After many years work on behalf of the Royal College of Physicians, Twysden continued his mathematical studies, and first published the present work in 1685 (ESTC 15 copies). At the end of this work are two short works: John Palmer, The Planetary Instrument, or the description and use of the theories of the planets, 6pp., and Samuel Foster, The description and use of the noturnal, 8pp and table.

         Plan Cadastral of the Land Outside the Fortifications.]

      1686. 1686 - Large hand coloured manuscript map of the outlying districts of the town of Veurne in the Flemish region of Belgium. 63 x 98 cm on thick paper, folded three times; some slight wear on the folds and a few small holes, not really affecting the image. An attractive and historically important manuscript map. Sebastian Le Prestre Vauban constructed very distinctive fortifications to the town in the latter half of the 17th Century; these can be seen in the Ferraris Map of the Austrian Netherlands [1770 - 78]. There is no sign of these fortifications here, merely the earlier surrounding city wall. There is a listing of landowners with map references as well as an outline border marked on the map. The speculation is that this could be a survey to identify landowners prior to the requisition of land in order to construct the series of star shaped and zigzag fortifications and may be one of the few records in existence of this earlier shape and ownership of the surrounding district. These fortifications were taken down in the late 18th Century by forces under Joseph II of Austria and only outline traces remain.
