        Collectio nova patrum et scriptorum Graecorum, Eusebii Caesariensis, Athanasii, & Cosmae Aegyptii

      Paris: Cl. Rigaud, 1707. Two volumes, large folio; double-column text and translation printed in Greek and Roman letter; four full-page engravings and two woodcuts in the text illustrating the Cosmas section; original French mottled calf, spines panelled in gilt between raised bands, red leather labels; covers rubbed. Collected edition of the Patristic geographers. A rare and important travel book, not much noticed in the literature. The account of his sixth century travels by Cosmas Indicopleustes appears here in print for the first time, accompanied by what have been described as - in all probability - the earliest Christian maps.The great palaeographer Montfaucon's eighteenth-century collection of Greek patristic (early Christian) writings prints for the first time newly discovered works by Athanasius and Eusebius of Caesarea, but is of most interest now for publishing for the first time the Topographia Christiana of the sixth-century traveller Cosmas - known as Indicopleustes, or the Indian Voyager - from the tenth-century manuscript in the Vatican, illustrated with four full-page engravings and several woodcuts in the text.A merchant from Alexandria, around the year 530 Cosmas sailed in the Red Sea and visited Ethiopia. 'He definitely visited Adulis (= Zula), where he found an inscribed marble seat, and described the Persian Gulf, Socotra, India and Ceylon, although there is no proof that he travelled that far. In fact he is quite honest about the places he visited and it can be assumed unlikely that he sailed far beyond the coasts of the Red Sea and South Arabia. His description of Ethiopia documents some of the large expeditions sent by the Kings of Aksum to the coast of Sasu, thought to be southern Somalia.'In about 548 Cosmas became a monk and retired to Sinai where he wrote his Topographia Christiana. It is for this, probably the first work of Christian geography and containing the first Christian maps, that he is best known. He regarded the Earth as a rectangular plane covered by the vaulted roof of the firmament, with heaven above. He recognized Ceylon as an entrepot in the trade between India and the Far East, and was aware that to reach China (he calls it 'Tzinitza') one had to sail east then turn north...' (Howgego, I, C200).Cosmas was a flat-earther, who scoffed at the idea of an antipodes on the basis that people there would have to hang on upside down: the illustration reproduced by Montfaucon from the early mansucript that he examined shows how absurd Cosmas found the idea of a globe with antipodeans thus disadvantaged. The chief object of his "Topography" was 'to denounce the false and heathen doctrine of the rotundity of the earth, and to vindicate the scriptural account of the world. According to Cosmas our terrestrial home is a tabernacle or tent: the earth is a rectangular plane, covered by the vaulted roof of the firmament, above which lies heaven. In the centre of the plane is the inhabited earth, surrounded by ocean, beyond which lies the paradise of Adam. The sun revolves round a conical mountain to the north - round the summit in summer, round the base in winter, which accounts for the difference in the length of the day.'The best known and most celebrated part of the "Topography" is the description, in the ninth book, of Ceylon and of the plants and animals of India... The work also contains in all probability the oldest Christian maps, either made by Cosmas himself or prepared under his direction... He attacked the theory that the earth was a sphere, both on the grounds of its pagan origin and common sense, and he was particularly anxious to discredit the existence of the Antipodes. How can rain fall up in the southern hemisphere? How could people hang upside down by their toes? Beazley notes that 'he carried the popular tradition to the furthest extreme. His vituperation against Greek science is a sign of its continuing vitality in Alexandria on the eve of the Arab invasion...' (Evelyn Edson, Mapping Time and Space: How Medieval Mapmakers Viewed Their World, The British Library, 1997, pp. 145-148).There are evidently two issues of the book, dated 1706 or 1707 but otherwise without difference.

        La guerre d'Italie, ou memoires du Comte D ***. Contenant quantité de choses particulières qui se sont passées dans les cours d'Allemagne, de France, d'Espagne, de Savoïe & d'Italie

      New edition, after the original 1702 published by the same publisher. Illustrated four folding maps, one of Italy with its various kingdoms and republics. Full period calf. Back tooled raised. Part of title in red morocco. A slight lack in mind. Slot in the upper joint tail. A torn map of Mantua. Friction. Pretty good copy. The war in Italy is an excellent narrative, teeming with picturesque details; it begins in a very romantic way to tell before starting the battles of Piedmont, Turin and Milan, and the political intrigues between Spain, France, the Duke of Savoy and the duchies of Italy. The book draws indeed two records, memoirs and historical genre, and they will find love affairs, many trips and descriptions as a rigorous account of battles and armies in Italy.

        Strabonis rerum Geographicarum Libri XVII

      Amsterdam: Joannes Wolters, 1707. Two volumes, folio, with a fine engraved title-page, parallel text in Greek and Latin in double columns; some wear affects joints of the first volume (yet binding still firm); a very good copy in contemporary full calf with raised bands and gilt labels. The best edition of the text. The best edition of Strabo's enormous Geography, his kolossourgia or colossal work as he described it himself. The influential Greek geographer who travelled widely, studied under both Aristotelian and Stoic teachers, and spent some decades in Rome, wrote his work early in the first century. Along with the less-known geographers Aratus and Geminus, Strabo promulgated the idea that the torrid zone of the spherical globe was occupied throughout its length by an ocean which divided his continent from another antipodal one in the southern hemisphere.This edition is based on the critical edition by the great classical scholar Casaubon, here further edited with the addition of extensive notes from the best commentators, and with the addition of text that had been omitted from the sources available to Casaubon. 'The annotations of preceding learned men are arranged with skill in their respective places, by the care and diligence of [this edition's editor] Almeloveen' (Dibdin).The "Geographies" of Strabo were 'by far the most important source for ancient geography, a priceless document of the Augustan age, and a compendium of important material derived from lost authors' (OCD). The work represents the classical world's most significant contribution to the science of geography. The first surviving attempt to collect all geographical knowledge that existed and to compose a general treatise on the subject, it was mainly based on ancient Greek sources. It survived in various manuscripts into the age of printing; however earlier printed editions of the text, including the Aldine edition of 1516, were based on corrupt manuscripts and it was not until 1587 that Casaubon improved the text for this edition, revising it again in 1620.

      Greece: Nuremberg Homann, Johann Baptist c1716. Copper engraved map of Crete and the islands of the Southern Aegean by Johann Bapt. Homann. Original colour, verso blank. The map is extremely detailed cocerning the settlements of Crete ; it has a long text beside the newly emerged island at Santorini following the volcanic eruption of 25th May 1707 :"In 1707, activity began again, the small when two cones appeared. They were called Aspronisi and Macronesi. Those were united in the course of the following five years by an island which formed between Palea and Small Kameni, much larger and higher then either and was called Nea (New) Kameni .This island, is the youngest island in Greece."[Santorini Living ] Large decorative title cartouche and vignette showing the Gods Posidon, Hermes with an Ottoman Turkish ruler on a pedestal decorated with grapes. Dark impression; bright and clean; cartouche black & white as issued; short tear to lower blank edge backed with archival tape. Johann Baptist Homann (1664 ?" 1724) from 1687 Homann worked as a civil law notary in Nuremberg. He soon turned to engraving and cartography; in 1702 he founded his own publishing house. Homann acquired renown as a leading German cartographer, and in 1715 was appointed Imperial Geographer by Emperor Charles VI. Giving such privileges to individuals was an added right that the Holy Roman Emperor enjoyed. In the same year he was also named a member of the Prussian Academy of Sciences in Berlin. Of particular significance to cartography were the imperial printing privileges (Latin: privilegia impressoria). These protected for a time the authors in all scientific fields such as printers, copper engravers, map makers and publishers. They were also very important as recommendation for potential customers. In 1716 Homann published his masterpiece "Grosser Atlas ueber die ganze Welt" Numerous maps were drawn up in cooperation with the engraver Christoph Weigel the Elder, Homann died in Nuremberg. He was succeeded by the Homann heirs company, in business until 1848, known as "Homann Erben", "Homanniani Heredes", "Heritiers de Homann" abroad. Zacharakis: 1641/1079.

The first (1642?"46) and second (1648?"49) wars pitted the supporters of King Charles I against the supporters of the Long Parliament, while the third (1649?"51) saw fighting between supporters of King Charles II and supporters of the Rump Parliament. The war ended with the Parliamentarian victory at the Battle of Worcester on 3 September 1651.Edward Hyde, 1st Earl of Clarendon (18 February 1609 ?" 9 December 1674) was an English statesman, historian, and maternal grandfather of two English, Scottish and Irish monarchs, Queen Mary II and Queen Anne.An Oxford educated lawyer and ultimately Chancellor of the Exchequer, had the tragedy to be a reasonable man in unreasonable times. His career took him into court circles in the 1630s, a period he came to remember as a paradise which enjoyed "the greatest calm and the fullest measure of felicity." He lived to see that idyll ripped apart by civil war and to witness what had seemed a divinely measured and equitable kingdom descend into bloody pandemonium. For Clarendon, England became a monstrous body politic fighting against itself, an insanity of division that culminated in the execution of Charles I in January 1649, when the state figuratively and literally cut off its own head.  By that time, Hyde was in exile. He had helped the queen and the future Charles II escape to France, but chose not to follow them. Instead, in 1646 he retreated to Jersey and began to recover from the chaos that had engulfed him. He spent two years on the island, relatively undisturbed. Steadily, at the request of the king, he created the bulk of his History of the Rebellion, a massive and impassioned exploration of the English civil war that he continued to assemble when he returned to the impoverished court abroad. The History remained incomplete, until Clarendon worked parts of his memoir into the text during his last years spent in political disgrace. Finally, his sons offered the original manuscript to Oxford, and after much editorial correction the 3-part work was published in six volumes, beginning in 1702.Condition:Conditions are Good+/Very Good.  Some wear to edges, bookplate to each Philip Eyre, some to boards/hinges, some glue/color added to lower front hinge and most of back hinge of Vol.I, holding well but visual crack, same to lower front hinge of vol. II, other hinges are very good, small insect hole to first couple pages of vol. IIpages/text blocks are very good for over 305 years old!!!

        Optica oculorum vitia : sub praesidio Georgii Alberti Hambergeri, ... in Academia Jenensi, doctorum oculis ad diem ... Octobr. MDCIVC sujiciet Adamus Behmannus Bernhardi, ...

      . Jena : Literis Gollnerianis, 1707, Kl.-4°, (2), 64 pp., mit 1 Kupfertafel, feiner Pappband im Stil d. Zeit.. Rare - Second Edition of the first monograph on refractive errors ! - - "Physiology in general and physiologic optics in specific made great progress during the 18th century. These advances were at first made not by practicing ophthalmologists but the mathematicians and physicists. This situation is, therefore , similar to that of the 17th century when progress was achieved by Kepler, Scheiner, Kircher, Mariotte, Hooke, Rohault, Deschales, Huygens and others. - - The mathematician Georg Albrecht Hamberger (1662-1716) was the author of a most curios monograph which was printed toward of the end of the 17th century. Modern historian did not know about it and it is not mentioned by A. Hirsch, not by Helmholtz in the second edition of his Physiological Optik. It is difficult to determine how much this book influenced the thought progress of the 18th century. It is only mentioned in the review of the literature by Julius Beer in his first 'Augenheilkunde' of 1792 and Haller quotes it in his 'Elementa physiologiae humani' ...." - - The book is called: Optica oculorum vitia sub praesidio Geogrii Alberti Hambergeri, .... - - This is the first monograph on refractive errors, - the root so to speak from which 170 years later the classical book by Donders evolved; the monograph is for its time extraordinarily clear, strictly mathematical and physical, written in an entirely different spirit from the scholastic descriptions of the fourth book by Plempius "Opthalmographia" (1632) and also far superior to the corresponding remarks in Boerhaave's lectures on ophtahlmology (1708, printed in 1746 to 1771). These two publications are usually regarded as the beginning of physiologic optics. .... - - (Also) Modern ocular hygiene was created by Professor Hamberger in Jena in 1696 ... - - Only the reform of ophthalmology during the middle of the 19th century which was based on the ophthalmoscope and the correct recognition of refraction changed the situation." Hirschberg/Blodi IV, pp.284-291 - - "Es ist dies die erste Sonderschrift über die Fehler der Einstellung des Auges ... für die damalige Zeit außerordentlich klar, streng mathematisch-physikalisch ... geschrieben ... Die Hygiene des Auges ... ist in den zahllosen Schriften über diesen Gegenstand, die um die Wende des 18. zum 19. Jahrhundert ... erschienen sind, nur wenig verbessert und erweitert worden " Hirschberg
