A repaired missing corner on title page, otherwise pages are in quite good condition. Happy to provide additional photos or information upon request. Sebastiano Izquierdo was also the author of Pharus scientiarum, a treatise on a methodology to access knowledge, conceived as a single science. In this work, he assimilated Aristotelian and Baconian logic, and he expressed some original ideas on mathematics and logic that have earned their author a reputation as an outstanding mathematician. Not just like his Spanish contemporaries John Caramuel or Tomás Vicente Tosca , but also significant foreign mathematicians as Athanasius Kircher , Gaspar Knittel or Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz , the latter, in particular, cited with, his Disputatio of Combinatione, in Combinatorial Art (1666). NESTENUS, John Michael. - Son of George and Elizabeth of Piero Bandini, was born in Florence in the second half of the seventeenth century. The father probably belonged to the group of families of the guards at the turn of the Grand Duke. A brother Nestenus, John Sebastian, was in fact "under handset Guard Stops Corazze Alemanne the Glorious Memory of Giovan Gastone first" (Morelli Timpanaro, 1999, p. 470); another brother, Pier Francesco, born Jacopo Alessandro, who w … [Click Below for Full Description]

Antique print, titled: 'Carte de L'Empire de Japon ( ).' - Map of the Empire of Japan. Centered on the Bay of Osaka, this map covers from Hirado (here identified as I. Firando) and Nagasaki to Akita (Aquita), to include most of Tokugawa (Edo) Era Japan. The island of Hokkaido is not included in this map. Various towns, harbors, bays, provinces, mountains and daimyo are noted, although many are speculative. Engraving / etching on hand laid (verge) paper. Description: Source unknown, to be determined.Artists and Engravers: Made by 'Jacques-Nicolas Bellin' after an anonymous artist. Jacques-Nicolas Bellin (1703 - 1772) was one of the most important cartographers of the 18th century. With a career spanning some 50 years, Bellin is best understood as geographe de cabinet and transitional mapmaker spanning the gap between 18th and early 19th century cartographic styles. His long career as Hydrographer and Ingénieur Hydrographe at the French Dépôt des cartes et plans de la Marine resulted in hundreds of high quality nautical charts of practically everywhere in the world. A true child of the Enlightenment Era, Bellin's work focuses on function and accuracy tending in the process to be less decorative than the earlier 17th and 18th century cartographic work. Unlike many of his contemporaries, Bellin was always careful to cite his references and his scholarly corpus consists of over 1400 articles on geography prepared for Diderot's Encyclopedie. Bellin, despite his extraordinary success, may not have enjoyed his work, which is described as "long, unpleasant, and hard." In addition to … [Click Below for Full Description]

S.107 kennt nur spätere Ausgaben" Praetorius bei Grässe S.101 Dünnhaupt 1441: "Waibler hält dies nicht für ein nachgelassenens Werk Praetorius, sondern eher für eine posthume deutsche Bearbeitung seiner lateinischen Schrift Ludicrum chiromanticum (1664) und Metoposcopia (1661)". Johann Praetorius (1630-1680) aus Zethlingen in der Altmark war Philosoph u. Magister. Seine Schriften behandeln vorwiegend volkskundliche Themen, dabei kritisiert er den Aberglauben seiner Zeit, obwohl er selbst die hier angeführten Grenzwissenschaften vertritt u. von der Existenz der Hexerei fest überzeugt ist. Praetorius gilt für das 17.

Sir Thomas Bodley, 1545 - 1613, was an English diplomat and scholar, and founder of the Bodleian Library, Oxford. He was educated at Magdalen College, Oxford, and was admitted as fellow to Merton College. He began lecturing at Merton, and in 1565 he was formally appointed as the college's first Lecturer in Ancient Greek. He served in many college offices and in 1569 was elected as one of the University's junior proctors. On his return from European travels, Bodley was appointed gentleman-usher to Queen Elizabeth and he entered Parliament as member for Portsmouth in 1584. He was later to become a diplomat, but after years of intrigue, he retired from public life in 1596.

Abraham à Sancta Clara [i. e. Ulrich Megerle].
1703. Folio (266 x 367 mm). (4) pp. With 98 (instead of 100) engraved plates (one of which in original hand colour). Later full vellum, bound to style, with handwritten spine title. First edition; rare. - While "only the dedication [...] was written by Abraham" (Dünnhaupt), this famous work represents a wide spectrum of traditional costumes "beginning with the portraits of the Pope and the imperial family" (Dünnhaupt), showing "the highest officials, and cuts of all sorts of people seen in Vienna. The cuts, prepared by Caspar Luyken for the Weigel firm, represent a veritable compendium of Viennese culture about the year 1700" (Faber du Faur). The background of the portrait of Emperor Leopold I was coloured. In addition, the illustrations exhibit traditional costumes of people from all over the world, including the Doge of Venice, Sultan Mustafa II and a number of Turkish types, a Spanish officer, East and West Indian Kings, Russians, American Indians and Ethiopians. The plates "carry the inscriptions 'Cas. Luyken fe' or his monogram 'CL fecit' as well as 'Christoph Weigel exc. Noremb' at the bottom" (Colas). - Somewhat brownstained throughout, otherwise very well preserved. From the library of the Viennese collector Werner Habel, with his signed and stamped ownership, dated 1978, to the flyleaf. Bertsche 42, 2. Dünnhaupt I, p. 122, 39. Lipperheide Ac 1. Colas II, 2189.

Erasmus, Desiderius.
Pieter van der Aa 1703?06, Lugduni Batavorum [Leiden]. Before his death, Erasmus (1466?1536) divided his writings into nine ordines (categories) for posthumous publication. This is the second edition of his collected works, first published in nine volumes by Froben in 1540. Like the original, this set includes additions by authors from the Dutch humanist's international circle and portraits of the same, as well as => myriad engravings after Holbein. The printer, Pieter van der Aa (1659?1733), was an apprentice of Daniel van Gaasbeeck (fl. 1655?92) and primarily known for maps and travel books. The text in all volumes is in Latin with some Greek, printed in roman and italic, mostly double-column with sidenotes and many large woodcut initials and tailpieces, as well as some engraved headpieces. Vol. I has both a general title-page and a volume title-page; each of the volume title-pages is printed in red and black and features a large engraved vignette signed by the illustrator J. Goeree and the engraver J. Baptist; some volumes also have sectional title-pages. There are many engraved plates: vol. I features an added engraved title-page, a double-page plate, and one full-page plate; in vol. III, part one, there are => 18 full-page engraved portraits of contemporaries of Erasmus including Melanchthon, Alciatus, Charles V, and Bembo, as well as two more full-page portraits in vol.

Guillaulme de L’ISLE
Parigi, 1703. "La mappa di Guillaume De L'Isle è la prima a rappresentare con precisione il corso e la foce del fiume Mississippi. Questa "Carte du Mexique " è stata realizzata grazie alle relazioni riportate in Francia dai sopravvissuti della spedizione La Salle in Nord America e alle informazioni derivate dalle esplorazioni di Bienville e d'Iberville. La mappa di De L'Isle rappresenta anche con maggiore precisione la regione dei Grandi Laghi e gli insediamenti inglesi lungo la costa orientale. Molto dettagliati dedicati anche alla presenza dei villaggi indiani nel Texas orientale, grazie ai rapporti di Iberville e dei missionari spagnoli. Una delle mappe più importanti e influenti della regione all'inizio del XVIII secolo." Guillaume De L'Isle's landmark map, the first printed map to accurately depict the course and mouth of the Mississippi River. De L'Isle's Carte du Mexique . . . is drawn from the reports brought back to France from the survivor's of the La Salle expedition into the interior of North America and from information derived from the explorations of Bienville and d'Iberville. In the year preceding the publication of the map, De L'Isle utilized his position with the King of France to gain access to the best available information from the New World. De L'Isle's map also includes greater accuracy in the Great Lakes region and in its depiction of English settlements along the East Coast. Excellent detail of the Indian villages in East Texas, based upon the reports of Iberville and the Spanish missionaries. The best depiction of the Southwest to date, with early … [Click Below for Full Description]
