        Flosculi Historiarum

      Metternich, Coloniae Agrippinae 1708 - Bussières Jean de ~ Flosculi Historiarum. Coloniae Agrippinae, Metternich, 1708 In-8, 1 vol., reliure en peau de truie "à la hollandaise" de couleur ivoire, sur ais de bois, avec estampage et fers à froid composant un ornement de cadres fleuris, dos à nerfs avec titre manuscrit, gardes bleutées et deux fermoirs en laiton montés sur lanières qui assurent encore parfaitement le maintien de l'ouvrage clos. Les Fosculi Historiarum sont des petites fleurs historiques : Bussières raconte l'histoire du monde dans ses traits les plus saillants et mémorables. On y trouve aussi quelques remarques de l'auteur, des faits lyonnais et surtout un latin stylé que Guy Patin louera dans une de ses lettres. Jean de Bussières est un jésuite français, né en 1607 à Villefranche-sur-Saône (Rhône), mort en 1678. En 1631, il entra dans la Compagnie de Jésus où il exerça les charges de recteur à Mâcon et à Lyon. Il composa en vers latins un poème sur l'île de Ré, délivré des Anglais, de Rhea liberata (1655) et ne tarda pas à se faire un nom dans la poésie latine. On conserve à la bibliothèque de Lyon plusieurs ouvrages du P. Bussières, demeurés manuscrits ; les plus importants sont une Histoire du Japon et une Histoire d¿Espagne [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Psaltyr' blazhennago proroka i tsaria Davyda [.].

      Lviv, v typografie Bratskoi pri tserkvi Uspeniia pr[esviatyia] B[ogorodi]tsa [Vassil Stavnitski], 1708. - 4to. (10), 251, (1) ff. Title page, preface, index and first page of text all printed in red and black. With figural and architectural woodcut title border, woodcut printer's device on reverse of title page, full-page woodcut in the text, woodcut headpiece (King David with harp) and numerous woodcut initials and vignettes. Contemp. blindstamped calf on three raised bands with giltstamped supralibros on front cover. Finely printer Lviv psalter from the press of the Dormition Brotherhood. A direct reprint of the 1570 Zabludów edition printed by the first Slavic printer, Ivan Fyodorov, using his original types and woodcuts. The Lviv Brotherhood had taken over Fyodorov's press and then produced many liturgical and pedagogical works. The printery played an important role in Ukrainian intellectual life and orthodox apology; Fyodorov's material and original designs continued to be used until the 19th century. Transformed into the "Stauropegion Institute" in 1788 by order of Emperor Joseph II, the press survived until the Soviet occupation in 1939. - The woodcuts are signed "EZ" and "Eustaf. Zadar" (i. e., Eustaphius Zadarowski); the fine, full-page woodcut of David is dated 1677. As the illustrations were requently re-used since the 16th century, many are rather flat; the numerous initials and decorative vignettes, taken over from the famous 1580 Ostrog Bible, are better preserved. - Several small defects to edges (old remarginings and professional modern restorations; slight loss to text on p. 6f.). Slightly fingerstained throughout, with contemp. ms. marginalia. The pretty, newly varnished binding bears blindstamped roll-tooled borders; the centerpiece (newly gilt) shows the Holy Trinity. Zapasko/Isaievych II, 24. Darlow/Moule II, p. 1403. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Solis Circa Orbem Terrarum Spiralis Revolutio

      G. Valk & P. Schenk, Amsterdam 1708 - One of the finest and most highly decorative celestial charts ever produced, from the Valk & Schenk edition of Cellarius This beautiful chart is from the Harmonia Macrocosmica seu Atlas Universalis et Novus (Harmonious Universe or New and Universal Atlas) by Andreas Cellarius, the finest celestial atlas ever produced. It depicts, according to pre-Copernican belief, the apparent path of the sun as it revolves around the Earth, which through the year was thought to form a spiral pattern. It would pass from one climate zone to another, thus regulating the seasons. The Earth is shown on an axis far more pronounced than the 23.5 degrees that was later ascertained. This rather severe tilt makes the zodiacal band run almost vertically through the image. According to Classical astronomy, championed by Aristotle and Ptolemy, the universe was a geocentric system, in which the Sun, stars, and the planets revolved around the Earth. The present image was engraved during the great era of Dutch map-making, a period that saw perfection in the art of representing scientific ideas in graphic form by means of engraving. It was first printed by Janssonius in 1660, and reprinted in 1661, and again in 1708 by Gerard Valk and Petrus Schenk, who added their names to the plates. Andreas Cellarius was born in about 1596 in Neuhausen, a small town near Worms in the Rhine-Hesse region of Germany. From 1625 to 1637 Cellarius worked as a schoolmaster in Amsterdam and The Hague, and in 1637 moved to Hoorn, where he was appointed as headmaster or rector of the Latin School. He published a number of works during his lifetime, but the last and greatest was the Harmonia Macrocosmica . Cellarius resigned from his post as headmaster in early 1665 and died in Hoorn in November of the same year. Koeman, Atlantes Neerlandici, Cel. 3.

        Medicina mentis, sive artis inveniendi praecepta generalia. Editio nova, auctior & correctior, cum praefatione autoris [and] Medicina corporis, seu cognitationes admodum probabiles de conservanda sanitate. Leipzig: Thomas Fritsch, 1695 [bound with] Gründliche Anleitung zu nützlichen Wissenschafften absonderlich Zu der Mathesi und Physica. Wie sie anitzo von den Gelehrtesten abgehandelt werden. Andere Auflage vermehret und verbessert. Frankfurt und Leipzig: Hieron, Philipp Ritschel, 1708.

      - Second editions of the two main works by the early Enlightenment mathematician, scientist and philosopher E.W. von Tschirnhaus (1651-1708), first published in Amsterdam in 1686 and 1687. Bound in is a pedagogical work by him in German that first appeared in Halle in 1700. Tschirnhaus had studied medicine at Leiden, and been introduced to Spinoza and his circle in The Hague nearby. He also met Huygens, Newton and Leibniz, and maintained a life-long correspondence with them. 'Like his mentor Spinoza, his friend Leibniz and his student Wolff, he used logic and observation in the determination of truth, and like them, was opposed by fundamentalists for doing so. His first book, Medicina Corporis, is a treatise on health. He had studied in Holland, the freest place on earth at the time, and it showed. Exposure to tolerant Dutch culture, secular Cartesianism and pantheist Spinozism shaped his positive appraisal of embodiment. The earthy tract was a success; it also appeared in a German version and was reprinted twice. The sequel, his main work, is the Medicina Mentis, which begins with an expression of joy over the order of nature - a joy intensified by considering that the mind can access truth. But, he argues, really to access it, and becoming a real philosopher (realis philosophus), requires an art of discovery (ars invenienda) modelled on mathematics (pp. xii-xiv).

With a discourse of the possibility of a passage thither. II. That 'tis probable our earth is one of the planets. III. Mercury: or, The secret and swift messenger. Shewing how a man may with privacy and speed communicate his thoughts to a friend at any distance. IV. Mathematical magick: or The wonders that may be perform'd by mechanical geometry. V. An abstract of his essay towards a real character, and a philosophical language. To which is prefix'd the author's life, and an account of his works. FIRST COLLECTED EDITION, 1708. 8vo, 200 x 120 mm, 7¾ x 4¾ inches, portrait frontispiece, plus engraved frontispiece to Part I showing Copernicus and Galileo and a diagram of the heavens, woodcut diagrams and illustrations in the text, pages viii, [6], 274; [10], 90; [8], 184, bound in full antique calf, gilt ruled border to covers, rebacked to style with raised bands, gilt rules and gilt lettered morocco label. Covers worn, corners slightly worn, 1 slightly bumped, lacks free endpapers, front pastedown slightly damaged, tiny repair to reverse of lower edge of frontispiece, 3 small ink marks in upper margin, early name and date to upper margin of title page, occasional very light foxing and very light browning, tip of 1 lower corner missing, tiny hole in 1 inner margin, a couple of ink spots to 1 page, no loss of text, 1 small ink note at the end of 1 chapter, pale damp stain to inner edges of pages 155 to the end. Binding tight and firm. A good sound copy. The book is in five parts, all originally published between 1638 and 1668 , Parts I - IV each with a separate title page dated 1707. Parts I and II bear the edition statement: 'The fifth impression'; Part III is the third edition, with separate pagination; Part IV is the fifth edition and has continuous pagination with Part V. The register is continuous. John Wilkins (1614 - 1672) theologian and natural philosopher, Bishop of Chester from 1668 until his death, chaired the founding meeting of the Royal Society and was its first secretary. He was the only person to have been head of a college in both Cambridge and Oxford. He was Master of Trinity College, Cambridge but was deposed at the Restoration in 1660: he had married Oliver Cromwell's sister, and this did not endear him to returning royalty. He had previously been Warden of Wadham College, Oxford. He is of great interest to cryptographers because of the book called 'Mercury, or the Secret and Swift Messenger' (1641 and here Part III), which is described as 'the first book in English on cryptography'. Part V is an abstract of his most important work An Essay Towards a Real Character in which he attempts to invent a universal language to permit more precise communication. He discusses the origin of language and letterforms, as well as the theory of grammar and phonetics. He classifies words by their meanings and assigns each class a set of typographical characters, thus creating a rationally ordered language and symbolisation.

Its title was Storia do Mogor and it was written partly in Italian, partly in French, and partly in Portuguese. Historians have long bewailed its disappearance, for hitherto they have been unable to check the statesments of Catrou.

        Theoria Lunæ, Euis Motum Per Eccentricvm et Epicyclvm Demonstrans [Representation of the Moon showing its motion in an eccentric orbit with epicycles]

      Amsterdam: Gerardum Valk and Petrum Schenk, 1708. Amsterdam: Gerardum Valk and Petrum Schenk, 1708 Hand-colored copper plate engraving on laid paper, 19.75 x 24.25 inches. Engraved by Johannes van Loon. Plate 18 from Harmonia macrocosmica : sev Atlas universalis et novus, totius universi creati cosmographiam generalem, et novam exhibens (Amsterdam: Gerardum Valk and Petrum Schenk, 1708). Image depicts a centered circular celestial map that shows the eccentric motions and apparent directions of the moon according to the Ptolemaic geometric model of epicycles, with eight circular figures depicting the eight stages of the moon's orbit and illustrating how the moon appears to look during those various stages, circular border divides the map along the lines of the twelve Zodiac houses and includes astrological symbols as well as an illustration to represent each, with the engraver's printed signature to the center of the bottom edge of the circular border; surrounding the center map is a decorative border, with two pictorial banners, each held up by two cherub heads to either side of the map that together spell the plate's title, ten additional cherub figures lounging among the clouds around the center map, two slightly larger cherub figures to the bottom corners, each holding cartographical instruments over miniature circular celestial maps: at the bottom left, the circular map depicts the moons apogee and perigee while the moon is in its "full" and "new" states, and, at the bottom right, the circular map depicts the moon during its waxing and waning periods, specifically in the first and third quarters; decorative border is surrounded by a simpler, ruled border with the publisher's information in the center of the largest rule and the page number 18 in the right corner. About fine, with a hint of toning where the plates had been adhered together, some light soiling to the page borders outside of the printed image, scattered light soiling to the verso, otherwise clean with a few hints of light rippling, else fine. Andreas Cellarius (1596-1665) was a Dutch-German cartographer, best known for his star atlas Harmonia Macrocosmica (first published in Amsterdam in 1660 by Johannes Janssonius), the only Dutch celestial atlas published before the 19th century and the mark of the apex of artistic celestial cartography. The first edition included an extensive descriptive Latin text along with 29 copper plate engravings of celestial cartography. Plates 1-21 depict the cosmological theories of Nicolaus Copernicus, Claudius Ptolemy, and Tycho Brahe, which describe the different trajectories and motions of the sun, moon, and planets. Plates 22-29 depict the allocations of constellations from various viewpoints. Each plate is ornately decorated with border illustrations, cherubs, astronomers, and instruments of cartography and astronomy, among other decorations. The last 8 plates depicting the constellations are the most elaborately decorated. The first printing of Harmonia Macrosmica was intended to be the first volume of a two volume set, but the second volume was never produced. Instead, in 1708, Gerardum Valk and Petrum Schenk published the second edition of Harmonia Macrosmica, which included all 29 of the Baroque-style double plates without the original Latin text. Harmonia Macrosmica marked a high point in celestial atlases, and Valk and Schenk's second edition is renowned for the tremendous artistic achievement of its illustrated cartographical plates. While many different engravers created the plates that produced these beautiful maps, only a handful signed their work, including Johannes van Loon who incised Plate 18. Copper plate engravings are a form of the intaglio printing technique, recognizable by their characteristic fine, tapered lines. These engravings are created by incising a design or illustration into a copper plate with a sharp hand tool known as a burin. When the image is printed, the incised lines on the copper plate hold the ink, meaning that the deeper incisions create darker printed images. Copper plates are the t.
