[Pufendorf, Samuel]
[Nürnberg] [Christophorus Riegel] 1696 or 1697. Plate mark 30 x 57,5 cm. The whole sheet 35 x 65,5. Etching and engraving. Very nice condition.. A very dramatic depiction of the sea batlle of the Sound (Öresund) between the swedish and dutch fleets in 1658. The dutch came to rescue the danish from the newly gained swedish control of Denmark and the siege of Copenhagen, and they suceeded. The swedish fleet was badly damaged and Denmark west of the Sound was saved, while the danish provinces east of the sound remained under swedish control. The border between Sweden and Denmark has ever since then been the Sound. The legend names the Swedish Ships involved in the sea-battle. Some of them are: Caesar, Apollo, Ceruus, Westerwijk, Amarantha, Cignus, Luna Dimidiata, Fides, Wismaria, Sudermannia and Ostrogothia. In the distance, can be seen, the fortification of Kronborg and the towns of Helsingör and Helsingborg. The plate was published for the work "De Rebus a Carolo Gustavo Sveciae Rege gestis commentariorum libri septem" an offical history of the the Swedish wars with Denmark and Poland 1655-1660. The author Samuel Pufendorf was a german historian who held the first chair of history at the newly establihed University of Lund. The work was published in latin, german and french in the years 1696 and 1697, containing numerous plates

Giacomo Filippo AMETI
Acquaforte e bulino, 1696. Magnifica prova, intagliata su quattro matrici, impressa su carta vergata coeva ed unita. Esemplare con coloritura coeva dei contorni, con margini, leggere ossidazioni, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. Dopo aver accuratamente seguito il progetto per l?ampliamento e la sistemazione di Roma, papa Alessandro VII (Fabio Chigi) affida l?incarico di formare il catasto dell?Agro Romano a diversi topografi ed agronomi, conferendo al gesuita Francesco Eschinardi il compito di dirigere la parte cartografica. Il rilievo migliore, oltre a quello di Giovan Battista Cingolani, fu opera dell?Ameti, che realizzò due grandi carte della parte settentrionale e meridionale della provincia di Roma. L?opera si basa sostanzialmente sulla carta che il monaco camaldolese Innocenzo Mattei (1626-79), geografo pontificio sotto Clemente X, realizzò nel 1666. Rispetto alla Tavola esatta dell?antico Latio e Nova Campagna di Roma del Mattei, il rilievo dell?Ameti rivela fondamentali analogie in tutti gli elementi del contenuto, compresi i riferimenti all?età classica, alle strade ecc., mentre sono aggiunte diverse piccole località, e differenze più notevoli sono riscontrabili per la zona costiera e sub costiera. La carta del Lazio, dedicata al cardinale Pietro Ottoboni, è anteriore di tre anni e presenta notevoli migliorie nel rilievo delle Paludi Pontine, dove anche l?idrografia è notevolmente diversa. Le carte dell?Ameti furono inserite, assieme a quella del Mattei, nella seconda edizione del Mercurio Geografico, atlante della tipografia De Rossi.

MUNTING. A.
Leiden and Utrecht: Pieter vander Aa and Francois Halma 1696. 2 volumes. Folio (460 x 300mm). With engraved title and 243 plates. Contemporary blind-stamped vellum with central floral motif, held within blind ruled borders. First edition and a fine Large Paper copy printed on heavier paper of this extraordinary florilegium. Abraham Munting (1626-1683) was professor of botany at the University of Groningen and considerably enlarged the botanical garden his father Henricus Munting had founded. It was known as the "Paradise of Groningen" and became one of the most extensive gardens of the period. During the summer Munting gave botanical lectures to his students four times a week. It was in this beautiful garden that his daughter Hester died eating deadly nightshade. The above work portrays plants growing in Munting's "Paradise". His numerous botanical friends had sent the seeds of many of these plants to him from the Dutch East- and West Indies, Africa and the Americas. "Munting wrote a number of works on medical-botanical topics, but his posthumously published 'opus magnum', the 'Naauwkeurige', enjoyed particular success, at least in part due to the novelty of the plates, which in a radical departure from the iconography of the traditional florilegium, presented its plant species against a charming series of landscape backgrounds? The illustrations are remarkable for their elegance and originality. The sophisticated title-page? was designed by an artist of considerable merit, Jan Goeree (1670-1731), who had been a student of Gérard de Laresse?

KØBENHAVN - DAHLBERG, ERIK.
Kobberstukket prospekt af København, stukket af Jean le Pautre efter tegnet forlæg af Erik Dahlberg. (Nürnberg, 1696). Lysmål: 104x28,5 cm. Med brede marginer. I guldramme.. Meget dekorativt prospekt og den bedste grafiske fremstilling af København fra 1600-tallets anden halvdel. Den store tredobbelte planche stammer fra Samuel Pufendorfs monumentale værk om Karl X Gustavs bedrifter i Polen, Tyskland og Danmark og viser det belejrede København i sensommeren 1658 set fra det nuværende Nørrebro med ruinerne af Christian IVs Ladegaard i forgrunden. Stikket gengiver situationen med svenske belejringstropper og jordværker tæt inde under byens volde. I takt med at udfaldene fra byen blev stadig hyppigere, og de belejrede blev fik forstærkninger fra Holland, trak svenskerne sig tilbage til en kæmpemæssig lejr ved Brønshøj.** Forlægget til stikket er en tegning - der formentlig bygger på en lang række skitser tegnet på stedet - af den ferme svenske ingeniørofficer Erik Dahlberg. Byen bag voldene er skildret med største nøjagtighed med den skyline, den havde fået gennem Christian IVs regeringstid. I forgrunden af billedet ses det svenske kongepar - den patologisk tyvagtige dronning Hedvig Eleonora sidder i en stor karosse, mens Karl Gustav er omgivet af hoffolk og officerer. Forgrunden myldrer med detaljer af militærhistorisk interesse: Her er omhyggeligt gjort rede for belejrernes udrustning og dragter

BERNOULLI, Johann & Jakob; LEIBNIZ.; L'HOSPITAL; TSCHIRNHAUS; NEWTON.
In the June issue of Acta Eruditorum for the year 1696 Johann Bernoulli published a paper in which he presented a challenge to the best mathematicians:<br/><br/> <i>"Let two points A and B be given in a vertical plane. To find the curve that a point M, moving on a path AMB , must follow such that, starting from A, it reaches B in the shortest time under its own gravity."</i><br/><br/> Johann adds that this curve is not a straight line, but a curve well known to geometers, and that he will indicate that curve, if nobody would do so that year. Later that year Johann corresponded directly with Leibniz regarding his challenge. Leibniz solved the problem the same day he received notice of it, and almost correctly predicted a total of only five solutions: from the two Bernoullis, himself, L'Hospital, and Newton. Leibniz was convinced that the problem could only be solved by a mathematician who mastered the new field of calculus. (Galileo had formulated and given an incorrect solution to the problem in his <i>Dialogo</i>). <br/><br/> But by the end of the year Johann had still not received any other solutions. However, Leibniz convinced Johann that he should extend the deadline to Easter and that he should republish the problem. Johann now had copies of the problem sent to <i>Journal des sçavans</i>, the Philosophical Transactions, and directly to Newton. Earlier that year Johann had accused Newton for having filched from Leibniz' papers. Manifestly, both Johann and Leibniz interpreted the silence from June to December as a demonstration that the problem had baffled Newton. They i … [Click Below for Full Description]

BERNOULLI, Jakob.
Very rare first separate edition of Bernoulli's solution of the isoperimetric problem, which represents the beginnings of the calculus of variations, later to be developed extensively by Euler and Lagrange.<br/><br/> In 1696 Johann Bernoulli had posed as a challenge to the mathematicians of Europe the problem of finding the curve of quickest descent, the so-called brachistochrone. Solutions were given by L'Hospital, Leibniz, Newton, and by Johann's brother Jakob in the May 1697 issue of Acta Eruditorum, At the end of this memoir Jakob raised the isoperimetric problem as a challenge to his readers, but especially to Johann (he even offered Johann a prize of 50 silver ecus for a satisfactory solution within three months). The isoperimetric problem asks for the curve of a given length joining two fixed points in the plane for which a certain integral is a maximum (a special case would be to maximize the area contained between the curve and the straight line joining the two points). "Johann underestimated the complexity of this problem by failing to perceive its variational character; and he furnished an incomplete solution... and thereby brought upon himself the merciless criticism of his brother. This was the beginning of alienation and open discord between the brothers - and also the birth of the calculus of variations. A comparison of Jakob's solution [in the offered work] with Johann's analysis of the problem... clearly shows Johann's to be inferior. Nevertheless, Jakob was not able to enjoy his triumph, since - for reasons that remain mysterious - the sealed envelope cont … [Click Below for Full Description]

BERNOULLI, JOHANN., GOTTFRIED LEIBNIZ & ISAAC NEWTON, (AND OTHERS). - [THE BRACHISTOCHRONE PROBLEM]
Leipzig: Gross & Fritsch, 1696-97. 4to. (201x169mm). (2),606;(8),594 pp. and 17 engraved folding plates (complete). Double-volume of the Acta Eruditorum for the years 1696 and 1697. An exceptionally fine and clean copy in contemporary vellum. In the June issue of Acta Eruditorum for the year 1696 Johann Bernoulli published a paper in which he presented a challenge to the best mathematicians:"Let two points A and B be given in a vertical plane. To find the curve that a point M, moving on a path AMB , must follow such that, starting from A, it reaches B in the shortest time under its own gravity."Johann adds that this curve is not a straight line, but a curve well known to geometers, and that he will indicate that curve, if nobody would do so that year. Later that year Johann corresponded directly with Leibniz regarding his challenge. Leibniz solved the problem the same day he received notice of it, and almost correctly predicted a total of only five solutions: from the two Bernoullis, himself, L¬íHospital, and Newton. Leibniz was convinced that the problem could only be solved by a mathematician who mastered the new field of calculus. (Galileo had formulated and given an incorrect solution to the problem in his Dialogo). But by the end of the year Johann had still not received any other solutions. However, Leibniz convinced Johann that he should extend the deadline to Easter and that he should republish the problem. Johann now had copies of the problem sent to Journal des sçavans, the Philosophical Transactions, and directly to Newton. Earlier that year Johann had accused New … [Click Below for Full Description]

Back w. some wear. Capitals worn and lower back hinge a bit cracked. Title-page printed in red and black, engraved title-vignette. Very sound and internally near mint. ¶ A fine edition and an estimated translation of Pausanias main work. The work is yielded as the very best Pausanias-edition and is renowned for its elegance and usefulness. "Édition estimée" (Brunet IV,455). "This is emphatically and justly called "edit. opt." of Pausanias. It is a very elegant and useful work, containing the most valuable parts of preceding editions, and having the advantage of being divided into chapters, with the arguments prefixed to each book, and the notes of Xylander and Sylburgius accompanying each page; it also contains the preface of the Hanover and Franckfort editions: the Greek text is given with great purity by Kühnius, to which are added his valuable and learned notes... The work is becoming scarce, and copies sell at a high price." (Dibdin II:272-73). Brunet IV pp. 455.

First edition of the two antagonistic orations of Æschines and Demosthenes as edited, with a Latin translation, by the young Oxford students Peter Foulkes and John Friend, who were both about twenty when this volume was printed. Contemporary calf. Gilt spine with red morocco label. . Octavo. With three engraved portraits, of the two orators and of Cicero, by M. Burg; these are included in the pagination. The Latin translation is printed at the bottom of each page. Joints, corners a bit rubbed, a little light foxing. A very good copy. This was for many years a popular edition; and was reprinted in 1715 if not oftener: but the first is the preferable edition, and is considered very correct. The explanation of the more difficult Greek words at the end, was among the principal causes of its popularity" (Dibdin I, 487).

Coronelli, Vincenzo Maria:
Venice, c. 1696. Map. Copper engraving, 45.5 x 61 cms, black and white, closed centrefold split, slight paper thinning, blank verso. Map of East Africa prepared for Coronelli's monumental 13 volume Atlante Veneto, published 1690-96 in continuation of Blaeu's Atlas Major. Coronelli credits earlier Portugese Jesuit authorities (Manuel de Almeida, Affonso Mendez, Pedro Páez, and Jerónimo Lobo) but also the contemporary German scholar Hiob Ludolf, the foremost expert of his day on Abyssinia. Ludolf compiled the first Ethiopian dictionary and grammar and discounted the traditional Ptolemaic lakes of Zaire and Zaflan (still shown by Coronelli in the inset) becoming the first to show the course and source of the Blue Nile at Lake Tana in his map of 1683. Franciscan scholar Vincenzo Coronelli (he was also an accomplished theologian) was among the leading map and globe makers of his age, making full and innovative use of the latest geographical information. A brief spell in Paris, for example, as cartographer to Louis XIV between 1681-83, gave him access to original material in the French archives including material gathered by Jesuit travellers such as La Salle. In 1684, back in his home city of Venice, Coronelli founded the first geographical society, the Academia Cosmografica degli Argonauti, and in 1685 he was appointed Cosmographer to the Republic of Venice. He is noted for the quality of composition and engraving of his maps, as well as their content.
