        Traité de la Lumiere. Où sont expliquées les Causes de ce qui luy arrive dans la Reflexion, & dans la Refraction. Et particulierement dan l'etrange Refraction du Cristal d'Islande...Avec un Discours de la Cause de la Pesanteur

      Woodcut device on general & divisional titles and numerous woodcut diagrams & illus. in the text. General title printed in red & black. 4 p.l., 124, [2], 125-128, [2], 129-180 pp. 4to, cont. vellum over boards. Leyden: P. vanderAa, 1690. First edition of one of the great classics of optics. This book contains Huygens' classical formulation of optical phenomena in terms of the wave theory of light, opposing the corpuscular theory advanced by Newton. Huygens showed how all points of a wave front originate partial waves and thereby propagate further wave motion. Thus reflection and refraction of light could also be explained. By the same means the complicated phenomena of double refraction and the polarization by double refraction were also explained. Huygens' wave theory of light remained unaccepted for over 100 years until Thomas Young used it to explain optical interference. The second part of this book -- the Discours de la Cause de la Pesanteur -- contains Huygens' mechanical explanation of gravity. His "point of view was that gravity should not be attributed to a quality or propensity of bodies, but should be explained, like every other natural process, in terms of motion."-Wolf, I, p. 164. This copy belongs to the issue in which Huygens' initials are on the title rather than his full name (no priority established). A fine and fresh copy. ❧ Dibner, Heralds of Science, 146.

        Traité de la lumière

      Leiden: Pieter van der Aa,, 1690. Où sont expliquées les causes de ce qui luy arrive dans la reflexion, & dans la refraction. Et particulierement dans l'etrange refraction du cristal d'islande … Avec un discours de la cause de la pesanteur. Small quarto (189 × 157 mm). Contemporary sprinkled calf, neatly rebacked to style with red morocco label. General title printed in red and black, second part with separate title, continuously paginated, both titles with woodcut printer's device, woodcut headpieces and initials, 89 woodcut diagrams in text, a few repeated. Some imperceptible paper restoration to old wormholes in the gutter not affecting text, text generally clean and fresh, an excellent copy. First edition of Huygens's path breaking exposition of his wave or pulse theory of light. Huygens had developed his theory in 1676 and 1677, and completed his Traité in 1678. He read portions of it to the Academy the following year but left it unpublished until publication of Newton's Principia in 1687 and a visit to Newton in 1689 stimulated him to have it printed at last. "Light, according to Huygens, is an irregular series of shock waves which proceeds with very great, but finite, velocity through the ether. This ether consists of uniformly minute, elastic particles compressed very close together. Light, therefore, is not an actual transference of matter but rather of a 'tendency to move', a serial displacement similar to a collision which proceeds through a row of balls ... Huygens therefore concluded that new wave fronts originate around each particle that is touched by light and extend outward from the particle in the form of hemispheres ..." (DSB). His wave theory of light was in opposition to the corpuscular theory of light advanced by Newton, and was eventually completed and confirmed by Young and Fresnel over a century later. The titles in this copy are in the probably earlier state, bearing only the author's initials (C.H.D.Z.), as in the large-paper copy described by Horblit.

        Amerique Septentrionale

      Chez Pierre Mariette, Paris 1690 - Among the most important French maps of North America of the second half of the 17th century, produced by the country's most esteemed family of cartographers. This very influential map was the official successor to Nicolas Sanson's 1650 map of North America. When Nicolas Sanson, regarded as the father of the renaissance of cartography under Louis XIV, died in July, 1667, he left his flourishing business under the charge of his eldest son Guillaume. The younger Sanson continued his father's partnership with the Mariette family, who were prominent Parisian printers. Guillame was determined to publish a new, updated edition of his father's Cartes Generales de toutes parties du Monde, the first French general atlas, originally published in 1657. The map of North America that appeared in the atlas, although masterful, was now considered to be geographically outdated. The present map, which appeared in the second edition of the atlas, featured updated toponymy, and is geographically based on Nicolas Sanson's wall map of 1666 (of which only two copies survive). While California is shown to be an island, in line with popular perception, unlike the map from 1650, it no longer attempts to build a geographical mythology in the place of the Pacific Northwest, which was then totally unknown. Appropriately the magnificent baroque title cartouche, which features swags and ribbons held aloft by putti, has been placed to fill this enigmatic space. Cartographically the map appears to be based on Sanson's maps of "Le Canada, ou Nouvelle France" and "Le Nouveau Mexique, et La Floride." Lake Erie is shown in a recognizable form and the entire Great Lakes network is shown in greater detail than his father's map, although the western lakes are still open-ended. On the East coast, Long Island is shown and the shape of the Outer Banks is improved. Several Indian tribes are identified in New Mexico where the R. del Norte (Rio Grande) mistakenly flows from an interior lake and empties into the Mar Vermeio ou Mer Rouge (Gulf of California). Iceland now appears in the Atlantic, as well as a bit of Britain. The map proved to be highly successful, and was sourced on numerous occasions by other mapmakers. The present copy is an example of Burden's second state of the map, with the date changed to 1690 in the cartouche and with additional place names and other changes: ".with minor alterations Terre de Jesso and Conibas inserted but without a coastline. Detroit d'Anian placed immediately above California and a few changes in spelling . New Albion is inserted in the north of the island, and New York replaces [New] Amsterdam" (Tooley). Burden, The Mapping of North America 404 (second state); McCorkle, New England in Early Printed Maps 669.4; cf. McLaughlin, California as an Island, 45; cf. Wagner, Cartography of the Northwest Coast of America , 399; Tooley, "California as an Island," 9 in Tooley, The Mapping of America. Copper-engraved map, period hand colouring in outline.

        An Essay concerning Humane Understanding

      London: for Thomas Basset, and sold by Edw. Mory,, 1690. In Four Books. Folio (320 × 194 mm). Contemporary mottled calf, red sprinkled edges, red morocco label added to style. Housed in a dark brown cloth slipcase. Armorial bookplate of Viscount Hood. Extremities and joints skilfully restored, single wormhole in lower margin throughout (occasionally closed) below the text, a few trivial marks, but a very good copy, clean and fresh. First edition, Basset issue (traditionally considered the second) with the "ss" of Essay reversed, and with the typographical ornament unaligned. John Stuart Mill described Locke as "the unquestioned founder of the analytic philosophy of mind". Though it startled contemporaries by its denial of innatism, the Essay was founded on earlier philosophers, notably Hobbes, though Locke's account was far more thoroughly worked out, and such features as the distinction in book 3 between real and nominal essences were entirely new. "Perhaps the most original aspect of the Essay is, however, the conception of philosophy which it embodies. Locke abandoned the whole enterprise of first philosophy as practised from Aristotle to Descartes: he did not see himself as laying a metaphysical foundation on which natural philosophers could then build, but rather (as he put it in the 'Epistle to the Reader') 'as an Under-Labourer … clearing Ground a little, and removing some of the Rubbish, that lies in the way to Knowledge' (Drafts for the Essay, 10) … Locke's philosophy was immensely influential in the eighteenth century, not least in the universities of Oxford and Cambridge, where it soon replaced the scholastic doctrines in which Locke had been educated … Locke was seen as having given a plain unmetaphysical account of the workings of the human mind that could serve as a complement to Newton's account of the physical universe" (ODNB). This issue has the Thomas Basset imprint; the other has the Elizabeth Holt imprint, and the "ss" of Essay correctly printed. Both issues have been championed as having priority, but recent scholarship indicates that priority of issue cannot be established: in his introduction to the Clarendon Press edition of the Essay, Peter Nidditch reverses his former opinion that the Holt imprint is the sign of a first issue, and John Attig's bibliography records it as a variant.

        Estates de Pologne Subdivisses suinant l'Estendue des Palatinats

      Paris 1690 - Estates de Pologne Subdivisses suinant l'Estendue des Palatinats Large scale map of Poland and Lithuania, including the surrounding bordering regions of Hungary, Austria and Russia. Rivers, lakes, forest, mountains and major cities and towns are depicted. A decorative title cartouche is at the top left corner, and a cartouche with a distance key is shown at the top right corner. Very brilliant original coloring. Born in Avignon, Alexis-Hubert Jaillot came to Paris in 1657 with his brother Simon, and both became sculptors. In 1664, Jaillot married the daughter of Nicolas Berey, an established mapmaker, and soon joined his father-in-law in the trade. Within a few years, Jaillot became the successor to Nicolas Sanson, the greatest French mapmaker of the seventeenth century. In 1669, Jaillot undertook the re-engraving, enlarging and re-publishing of the Sanson maps in sheet form and in atlases, sparing no effort to fill the gap in the map trade left by the destruction of Blaeu's printing establishment in Amsterdam in 1672-one of the most productive cartographic establishment in the Netherlands. Jaillot redrew Sanson's maps with many additions and corrections and fresh embellishments. Jaillot's maps are considered to be among the most decorative ever done. They are justly famed for their large size and baroque ornamentation, and do considerable justice to their maker who was the court geographer to Louis XIV. In 1690, Pierre Mortier began to publish Sanson's and Jaillot's maps from his Amsterdam firm. SANSON, N and JAILLOT, A.H.

        Le Globe Terrestre Representé En Deux Plans-Hemispheres Et En Diverses Autres Figures

      Jean-Baptiste Nolin, Paris 1690 - A very beautiful and finely engraved world map, principally devised by one of the period's greatest cartographers This very fine map is the result of the synergy of the talents of Coronelli and his French colleague Tralage, popularly known as the Sieur de Tillemont. It principally depicts the world in a bi-hemispheric projection, and largely follows the geography represented on Coronelli's celebrated globe of 1688. California is shown to be an island, and in the enigmatic void that lies to the northwest is the 'Strait of Anian' that supposedly forms the western terminus of a presumed Northwest Passage. Beyond the strait, just to the northeast of Japan is the mysterious "Terre de Jessu," that supposedly represents Hokkaido. Much further south, the loosely-defined area that is now known as New Guinea is labelled as the "Terre de Quir," noting on the map that it was discovered in 1606 by the Spanish explorer Ferdinand de Quir. The only major addition here to Coronelli's established geography is the appearance of the Solomon Islands. Surrounding these principal hemispheres are eight diverse hemispheric projections of the world, evincing a playful fascination with mathematics and perspective that anticipated the Enlightenment of the next century. Adorning the two upper corners of the map are a pair of hemispheres capturing the world from an oblique perspective, one centered on Paris, and the other from its diametrically opposite position in the antipodes. Also, in the upper portion of the map, is a pair of hemispheres capturing the world in an ovoid projection, and resting in the spaces in between the two main hemispheres are a pair of projections depicting the world from a perspective centered at the poles. In the lower left corner, the entire world is captured on a projection centered at the North Pole. Most strikingly, in the lower right corner the world is captured in a cordiform, or heart-shaped projection, which since it was first devised during the Renaissance was considered an iconological symbol of various humanist values. Vincenzo Maria Coronelli, a Venetian scholar and Minorite Friar, became one of the most celebrated map and globe makers of his era. Throughout his industrious life he produced more than one-hundred terrestrial and celestial globes, several hundred maps, and a wealth of cartographic publications. In 1683, he completed the Marly Globes for Louis XIV, the largest and most magnificent globes ever made. In 1684 he founded the Academia Cosmografica degli Argonauti , the first geographical society, and was appointed Cosmographer of the Republic of Venice. The present map is the result of the lucrative partnership Coronelli formed in the late 1680s with the prominent Paris cartographer Jean-Baptiste Nolin, who printed editions of Coronelli's maps that flourished on the French market. Coronelli published two atlases, the Atlante Veneto (Venice, 1691) and the Isolario (1696-98), and compiled the first encyclopedia to be arranged alphabetically. This map was first printed in 1690, and the present map is in the second state, as indicated by its dedication which honors Louis Philippeaux de Ponchartrain, the French minister of Finance.

        Idea dell Universo

      Venice, circa 1690 - Vincenzo Coronelli (1650-1718) Idea dell Universo Venice, circa 1690 Hand-colored copperplate engraving; two panels 26 ½" x 34 ½" framed(each page separately framed) Condition: Very good, later color Coronelli’s maps and globe gores represent the most complete geographical knowledge of the world in the late 17th century. Coronelli was a cleric and encyclopedist with a particular interest in geography and cartography. He was author of more than 140 titles and produced several hundred maps over his lifetime. As Royal Cartographer to King Louis XIV, Coronelli had complete access to the most current documentation sent from the colonies to the French Academy of Sciences. Accordingly, his maps contain many legends that comment on the most important explorations and discoveries. After serving Louis XIV, Coronelli returned to Venice in 1684 and founded the Accademia Cosmografica degli Argonauti, a geographical society with membership drawn from the aristocracy and church hierarchy. One year later he was appointed Cosmographer to the Republic of Venice. This vibrantly colored celestial chart represents an accounting of the major astronomical and astrological theories at the beginning at the end of the 17th century. In the center of the chart is a large celestial planisphere incorporating the rotations of the planets and signs of the zodiac, which is surrounded by 4 blowing wind heads and 5 planetary diagrams. The border is comprised of 28 smaller illustrations of solar and lunar eclipses, terrestrial maps, astrological charts - including a chart indicating which zodiacal signs govern the various parts of the body.

      De Wit, c 1690, Amsterdam: - A most attractive double hemisphere map of the world, with smaller polar insets. Handsomely decorated with allegorical vignettes of the four seasons in the border. The first edition of the map is recorded as Shirley 451- he records the 2nd state adding a border & some cherubs to the plate as well as Nova Guinea and Quiri Regio on the left hand hemisphere. This edition, (Shirley 499) is further altered in that California as an island has a pointed tip (instead of a flat top), and by the insertion ot some of the Great Lakes instead of the single open-ended inland sea shown previously. De Wit was granted privilege in 1688, and included a line to that effect under the title. Australia is illustrated post-Tasman, showing the tip of Tasmania & Cape York Peninsula, the full West coast of Australia. The bottom of Cape Horn is the only geographical feature on the Antarctic polar projection. Copper engraving with old color refreshed. Size: 48 x 57 cm. (19 x 22½ in.) [HxW]. Bottom center fold strengthened, with small margin tear strengthened. Overall in very good condition. A most attractive world map. References: Shirley, R.W. (World) 499.

Neuedition der erstmals 1667 von Jean Mabillon vorgelegten Werkausgabe; 1719 erschien eine dritte Ausgabe.

Der Zisterzienser Bernhard von Clairvaux (1090-1150), einer der bedeutendsten Mystiker des Mittelalters, trat als Kreuzzugsprediger hervor und zählte zu Pierre Abaelards theologischen Gegnern. "Bernhards Mystik hat die Frömmigkeit der nächsten Jahrhunderte, auch die evangelische, nachhaltig beeinflußt. Bis in die neueste Zeit hat man Bernhard das sog. Passionssalve zugeschrieben [.], dem Paul Gerhardt 'O Haupt voll Blut und Wunden' nachgedichtet hat [.] In seinem Hauptwerk 'De consideratione ad Papam Eugenium' wandte sich Bernhard gegen das Machtstreben und die Weltherrschaft der Päpste und empfahl Eugen III., seinem früheren Schüler, Armut, Demut und Beschränkung auf das religiös-kirchliche Gebiet" (Bautz, BBKL I, 530ff.). - Gegen Ende etwas wurmspurig.

        Vergel de plantas, e flores da Provincia da Madre de Deos dos Capuchos Reformados.

      Lisbon, Miguel Deslandes, 1690. - Woodcut vignette on title-page, woodcut initials, head- and tailpieces. (6 ll.), 479 pp. Folio (28.1 x 19.8 cm.), contemporary vellum, originally limp (board stiffeners, warped, new endpapers and leather ties recently added), Manuscript vertical title on spine, text block edges sprinkled red. Paper flaw in F3 costing a few letters, light marginal dampstaining at end, occasional light spotting. Overall in fine condition internally; very good overall. Stamp of the Casa de Cadaval in blank margins of title and 2 text pages. Small square printed paper shelf ticket of same with manuscript notations near upper outer corner of recto of second (older) front free endleaf. ---- FIRST and ONLY complete EDITION of this very rare chronicle of the province of Madre de Deos, Goa, with hundreds of pages on China, Macau, Cambodia and Ceylon. It begins with the arrival of Franciscan missionaries in Goa in 1540, providing also significant material on Cochim, Damão, Chaul and Diu. Chapter 4 is devoted to the activities of Capuchins in China (pp. 115-271), many in Macau, and pp. 149-264 are given over to a "Discriçam do Imperio da China," which includes comments on buildings, navigation, language, police, government, industry, etc. Chapter 5 deals with Malacca and Siam (pp. 272-98), Chapter 6 with Cambodia (pp. 298-354). Chapter 8 has sections on Moçambique (pp. 424-6) and Ceylon (pp. 426-9), and a biography of a Capuchin who was a Kaffir (pp. 439-41). Throughout the volume are extensive comments on churches (including their miraculous images) and on the missionary activity of individual Capuchins in Goa and elsewhere in Asia - many of these biographies are 6 to 10 pages long. While much has been written concerning Jesuit missions in this area, relatively little is known of the Capuchin work which this book details, including at the end a year-by-year chronicle from 1623 to 1679 with the names of the "guardians." Everywhere the Capuchins went they established schools, wrote books in the vernacular of the country, held public conferences with the learned heathen, and found their chief obstacle in the European traders, including the Portuguese. Fr. Jacinto made efforts to consult primary source material: "Com grande trabalho descobri o fogo escondido no poço da antiguidade, & obscura caverna do esquicimento por cartorios, & archivos, por informações, & papeis, que alguns particulares curiosos conservarão" ([cross]?3@v). Some of these documents are transcribed within the text.Born in Macau in 1612, Fr. Jacinto de Deus was a Capuchin who served as Provincial and a Deputy of the Inquisition in the province of Madre de Deos. He died in Goa in 1681; this work was edited and published posthumously by P. Fr. Amaro de Santo Antonio, provincial of Madre de Deos.During the eighteenth century Fr. Jacinto was harshly criticized for unnecessarily turning into Portuguese many words that the critics thought had adequate Portuguese equivalents. One critic suggested that the @Vergel das plantas should have been entitled @Sementeira de vocabulos latinos puerilmente aportuguezados. Innocêncio notes, however, that many of Fr. Jacinto's neologisms had been accepted into common Portuguese usage by the nineteenth century.---- Arouca D19. Innocêncio III, 238-9. @Bibliotheca Boxeriana 206.

        MANUSCRIPT MEMOIR OF M. LA VALLIER DES ROCHES, FRENCH NAVAL OFFICER, SPANNING THIRTY YEARS OF FRENCH INVOLVEMENT IN THE NEAR EAST, AFRICA, AND THE AMERICAS].

      [Np. ca. ]. 1690 - 127pp. numbered in contemporary manuscript, plus two pen-and-ink drawings, one of Carthagena and the other a map, "Plan de Ste. Marthe." Folio. Gathered signatures. Internally bright and clean. Near fine. In a half morocco and cloth box. A remarkable and extensive memoir composed by the career French naval officer, M. La Vallier des Roches, spanning nearly three decades of service in the Near East, Africa, and the Americas. From the papers of Michel Bégon (1638-1710). Bégon was a French civil servant and colonial administrator who served for a while in Canada, and then in the Caribbean at Martinique. In the 1680s he became intendent at Santo Domingo, and was later sent to Martinique for official duties. Later he was the intendent of the port of La Rochelle and gathered a great deal of intelligence for the French Crown. Des Roches' narrative is divided into seven main sections: the march of six thousand French soldiers to Hungary before the battle of St. Gothard; the seizure of the Dutch slave colony of Gorée off the African coast in 1678; an account of the taking of Tobago later in 1678; the disaster suffered by the French fleet under d'Estrées on its way to attack Curacao in August of 1678; a 1682 naval reconnaissance voyage along the coast of Central America; a French demonstration of force off the coast of Copenhagen in 1683; and Tourville's defeat of the English and Dutch fleets off Beachy Head in 1690. Des Roches' narrative is rich in specific detail, sometimes at the expense of style. Excerpts from each section follow below (in English translation): 1) From the march to Hungary: "During the different [?] between the Pope and the King, the Kingdom of Hungary which for several years has rested from the fatigues of a furious war which overwhelmed it, began anew to feel itself torn asunder by the Ottoman armies, and to be reduced to having these vast and fertile lands serve only as theater for playing bloody tragedies. This numerous army, at the head of which the grand Seigneur had placed his first Vizir, would without a doubt have subdued the rest of this Kingdom if the Emperor hadn't asked for help from his allies, that is, the Electors and other Christian Princes. The King, who has no greater passion than helping his brothers, and all those who have need of his forces, particularly when it lies in the interests of the Religion, at the first demand from the Emperor provided 6000 men from the best troops of his Kingdom: 4000 infantry and 2000 horse, which troops were paid by his majesty. The companies of light horse already in Italy were ordered to leave and to pass into Hungary to go to the aid of this pitiful realm." 2) From the taking of Gorée: "L'Isle de Gorée est terre d'affrique.; arrived Sunday last of Oct.; squadron carried Dutch colors; fired upon; moored; same evening armed sloops detached; saluted by enemy but continued approaching land; enemy abandoned lower fort; retired to upper; next day Mon. 1 Nov. vice admiral requested surrender; gov. replied saying he had a good fort; Sr. de Combe, Ingenieur, was envoy; attacked planned; participants listed; cannonade followed by surrender; garrison of 120 men taken prison; Tues. forts razed; armaments listed incl. 40 black slaves." 3) From the taking of Tobago: ".arrived 6 Dec.; d'Estrées sent troops ashore; Blenag & Grancey share command by land & sea; camp; placing cannon, cutting road through woods; took some prisoners; several French came to help; request for surrender includes threats against Gorée prisoners if French in fort are harmed; 'renegade' French for Prince of Orange; preparations continue; Sunday midday 14 cannon volleys; a bomb in their powder magazine; vice admiral immediately to fort to accept surrender; such good care given to wounded that others surrender easily; 650 prisoners as well as fort; Precieux, 56, retaken with three others; one a 52; a frigate of 8 and 200 ton flustre, 10; fort no less well armed; sang Te Deum; blew up fort." 4) From the jou

        Die Chur-Brandenburgische Hoff-Wehe-Mutter. Das ist: Ein hochst nothiger Unterrricht von schweren und unrecht-stehenden Geburten

      Koln, 1690. First Edition. Full contemp. vellum with some repairs to the bdg. A very good copy with wide margins; some toning and the occ. light tide mark to the margins of some leaves; the fldg. plate has a repaired tear - no loss. 4to., A portrait, allegorical frontis., and 43 eng. plates (one fldg.). This is one of the most celebrated and rare obstetrics books of the 17th century. All of the illustrations and cases used in this book were original observations. The author was a midwife and is given equal credit with Mauriceau for introducing the practice of puncturing the amniotic sack sac to arrest hemorrhage in the placenta praevia. Abnormal presentations are dealt with at length and there are numerous illustrations (including a plate of birth furniture showing a version for oblique lie). The book is divided into two parts. The first dealing with difficult labor and its treatment. The second is a treatise on medicines. The book was the result of the author developing a habit of taking notes in all the cases she attended. The book is invaluable for its presentation of medical practice in 17th century Germany. Thoms remarks that the book, '... not only reflects a remarkable personality but one in whom the art of practical obstetrics was developed to an extraordinary degree.' It would be difficult to overestimate the importance of this book. Complete copies are rare in the market. The copy is offered with its own attractive box with rounded calf backstrip. G-M # 6149; Waller #8923 ; see Thoms, pp. 54-56.
