         Mundus Aater et idem sive terra australis

      [1607]. 1607 - ante hac semper incognita longis itineribus peregrini Academici nuperrime lustrata.Engraved title & 5 folding maps, engraving in text & small woodcut illustrations. 8vo. Attractive nineteenth-century plum morocco, gilt, very lightly rubbed at edges, a.e.g., some signatures/ catchwords cropped. [16], 224pp. [London, H. Lownes for] Frankfurt: heirs of A. de Rinialme Mundus Alter was not ascribed to Bishop Hall until 1674, when the librarian of the Bodleian, Thomas Hyde identified Mercurius Britannicus. The work (a moral satire against the Church of Rome) is one of the earliest fictional voyages set in Terra Australis and was an inspiration for Swift's Gulliver's Travels. The maps show in some detail the imaginary great Antarctic continent, and two also include details of the Americas. First printed and published in London (with Frankfurt given on the titlepage and the false imprint of Ascanius de Rinialme) probably in 1605, a second edition appeared in 1606 (with 1607 on the title) printed in Hanau by Wilhelm Antonius, and published there with the same fictitious Rinialme name. The copy here described is a re-issue using sheets primarily from the first edition, London, with one sheet (D) from the Hanau reprint. The London edition may be distinguished by having catchwords on both the rectos as well as the versos of leaves throughout. The title page is in the rare first state, with vertical hatching on the plinth, and the maps which are each marked with page numbers. STC 12685.3cf. Church II, 54; Sabin, 29819.

         The Historie of Foure-Footed Beastes

      ondon- William Jaggard, 1607 Book. Good. Hardcover. First edition.. A very scarce first edition of this illustrated bestiary. Collated: Lacking pages A1-6, B1, B3-5, C2-3, D6, FF1-6, I5, M1, X2, 3H4, 3Y1-8. Title page in facsimile. Lacking the plate of Durer's Rhinoceros. Pages often misnumbered, as indicated above. A fascinating work, scarce in any form and containing many of the illustrations for which the work is famous. Edward Topsell was an English cleric and author. He is best remembered for this work and a secondary volume, The History of Serpents. Topsell's work covers both real and mythological animals, including a striking plate of the Manticore, a creature with the body of a lion and the head of a man. Topsell was not a naturalist himself, and his worked was derived from the authority of earlier works. In doing so, Topsell repeats various amusing and now obviously fantastic features of animals, including the misbelief that Apes are scared of snails, and that Elephants worship the sun and the moon. Likewise, Topsell includes accounts of mythological creatures, showing only some scepticism when it comes to the existence of the Hydra. With the bookplate of Humphry Primatt, a clergyman and advocate for animals. Primatt wrote on moral issues in natural philosophy, attacking unnecessary cruelty to animals including that inflicted through hunting and other sports. Primatt's argument, founded in the divine goodness of God, argued that as all animals were created by God, justice must extend to them as it does to humans. An interesting provenance for a work of this nature. Despite its defects, this is an attractive copy for any collector, with a unique provenance. Condition: Rebacked in a calf binding with original boards preserved and contrasting red spine label. Externally, smart with light rubbing to the boards and very light bumping to the extremities. Hinges reinforced. Bookplate of Humphry Primatt to front pastedown. Internally, firmly bound. Pages remarkably bright. Title page in facsimile. Lacking several pages as outlined in collation. Occasional small marginal closed tears, light dampstaining in places and brown stains to the pages 211-222. Lightly spotted throughout, heavier in places. Marginal loss to p313. Repairs to several pages, particularly first 10 pages, the gutter of pages 4, 11-14, 227, 433, 749-756 andmargin of p25, 97, 104, 179, 296, 435, 439, 457, 549. Heavy repairs to p441, the plate of the manticore. A few illustrations have been closely trimmed, particularly affecting the Cameleopard. Overall: GOOD.

      In Vinegia, presso Altobello Salicato 1607 - Cm. 20,5, cc. (8) 200. Marchio tip. al frontespizio, testatine e alcuni capilettera xil. Testo in corsivo ed edizione ancora tipicamente cinquecentesca. Bella legatura novecentesca di foggia antica, in mezza pelle verde con titoli e fregi in oro al dorso; ampie punte e carta marmorizzata ai piatti. Trascurabile segno di tarlo limitato alle ultime due carte, con interessamente di alcune lettere. Qualche sporadica fioritura, peraltro ottimo esemplare, carte in stato di non comune freschezza. Francesco Sansovino (1521-1583), letterato e poligrafo, fu al centro della vita culturale del Cinquecento italiano. Fu autore, curatore o traduttore di ben 93 opere in meno di trent'anni di produzione letteraria. Quest'opera, che ebbe grande successo e circolazione, presenta notizie d'interesse storico, geografico, politico, economico e sociale riguardanti vari stati d'Europa. Solo le notizie su Ragusa, Genova e Lucca sono opera diretta dell'A., le altre furono invece rielaborazioni, traduzioni, o brani semplicemente mutuati dalle opere di Paolo Giovio, Gaspare Contarini, Alfonso Ulloa, Leandro Muzio, Ottaviano Vestrio ed altri. DI particolare interesse è l'ultimo capitolo, di fatto una libera traduzione dell'Utopia di Thomas More, "Del Governo della Repubblica di Utopia". Cfr.

Rarissime réunion de deux célèbres livres hollandais du début de XVII siècle : la première édition du premier livre d'emblèmes en hollandais, et la troisième édition du recueil de chansons Nieuwen Lust-Hof. Le premier est une magnifique suite d'emblèmes gravés à thématique amoureuse, tous accompagnés d'un poème en hollandais qui illustre, à son tour, leur signification. Un ouvrage très érudit, avec des mottos aux sources latines, françaises et italiennes, mais aussi de grand impact visuel - ce qui fit son succès. Hensius, ici encore caché sous le nom de plume de Theocritus à Ganda, présentait probablement le travail d'un collectif d'humanistes anonymes de Leiden. Manque 2 gravures et deux poèmes sur 24, la page de titre et tout le premier cahier (texte). Le deuxième ouvrage contient des poèmes érotiques et chansons à boire de poètes hollandais (qui les signèrent uniquement avec un "motto") et, dans la deuxième partie, un poème plus long (de Michiel Vlacq) ; superbes gravures dans le texte, dont le style baroque bien montre la "jeunesse dorée" et les occasions mondaines auxquelles le livre et ses chansons étaient destinés. Texte en deux colonnes, deux pages de titre gravées avec la même illustration d'une compagnie attablée avec deux musiciens. Manque les pages 35-36.

         Progymnasmata alchemiae, sive problemata chymica, nonaginta et una quaestionibus dilucidata: cum lapidis philosophici vera conficiendi ratione.

      E Collegio Musarum Paltheniano, Frankfurt 1607 - 1606-1607. Three parts in one volume. 8vo (161 x 96 mm). [16], 254, [2], 136; 165 [1] pp., including separate title page to third part, dated 1606, printer's devices to each title-page and at end of second part. Contemporary full vellum, spine with gilt-lettered morocco label and manuscript shelf number (light wear to exremities, some spotting and soiling of covers, lacking first free endpaper). Text somewhat browned throughout, occasional brown spotting, first title with short tear at blank fore-margin and binders glue residues at blank gutter, occasional ink and pencil annotations and markings in contemporary hand. Provenance: illegible ink stamps on first title recto and verso. Good copy. ---- Ferguson II, 304; Duveen, p. 530; Ferchl 460; NLM/Krivatsy 10038; Thorndike VII, 159; Partington II, 161; STC R 1208; Verginelli 289. VERY RARE FIRST EDITION of an important work on alchemy, divided into three parts: the third, dated 1606, is titled Lapidis philosophici true conficiedi ratio (the real method to realize the philosopher's stone). "Of the three parts, the first contains 64 problems, followed by chemical remedies. Part two is an Appendix of Chemical Questions, containing the remainder of the problems, numbered from 65 to 91. The third part contains two treatises on the pilosophers' stone of 20 and 12 chapters respectively. The former was reprinted by Manget in 1720 as the work of Marsilio Ficino" (Thorndike). The latter, on which Thorndike is silent, bears the caption title "Tractatus alter de lapide philosophico anonymi cuiusdam". The pseudonym of this 'anonymus' can be disclosed thanks to a comment by a contemporary learned reader. He noted on p.86 that he had already found this treatise in a work of 1604, and that it was reprinted again in the volume of Theatrum chemicum. On the basis of these references, the author is easily discernible: it is Martin Sendivogius. His text was reprinted after the first edition of the "Novum Lumen Chymicum" in 1604 (Ferguson II, 367), omitting the preface. The learned men added this in a clean Latin handwriting on three leaves at the end of the work. It is interesting to note that Ruland's work was also thoroughly studied and dictated by Isaac Newton. Martin Ruland, 1569-1611, also known as Martinus Rulandus or Martin Rulandt, a famous German alchemist, a disciple of Paracelsus, was Rudolf II's physician. The copy studied and annotated by Newton is part of The Frederick E. Brasch Collection of Newton and Newtonian now at Stanford University Library. The book is very rare. We can trace only one copy (this copy) at auctions in the past 50 years (Zisska & Kistner, 2004, sale 43, lot 447, sold EUR 1725). - Visit our website for additional images and information.

         Progymnasmata alchemiae, sive problemata chymica, nonaginta et una quaestionibus dilucidata: cum lapidis philosophici vera conficiendi ratione.

      Frankfurt: E Collegio Musarum Paltheniano, 1607. 1st Edition. Hardcover. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. 1606-1607. Three parts in one volume. 8vo (161 x 96 mm). [16], 254, [2], 136; 165 [1] pp., including separate title page to third part, dated 1606, printer's devices to each title-page and at end of second part. Contemporary full vellum, spine with gilt-lettered morocco label and manuscript shelf number (light wear to exremities, some spotting and soiling of covers, lacking first free endpaper). Text somewhat browned throughout, occasional brown spotting, first title with short tear at blank fore-margin and binders glue residues at blank gutter, occasional ink and pencil annotations and markings in contemporary hand. Provenance: illegible ink stamps on first title recto and verso. Good copy. ----Ferguson II, 304; Duveen, p. 530; Ferchl 460; NLM/Krivatsy 10038; Thorndike VII, 159; Partington II, 161; STC R 1208; Verginelli 289. VERY RARE FIRST EDITION of an important work on alchemy, divided into three parts: the third, dated 1606, is titled Lapidis philosophici true conficiedi ratio (the real method to realize the philosopher's stone). "Of the three parts, the first contains 64 problems, followed by chemical remedies. Part two is an Appendix of Chemical Questions, containing the remainder of the problems, numbered from 65 to 91. The third part contains two treatises on the pilosophers' stone of 20 and 12 chapters respectively. The former was reprinted by Manget in 1720 as the work of Marsilio Ficino" (Thorndike). The latter, on which Thorndike is silent, bears the caption title "Tractatus alter de lapide philosophico anonymi cuiusdam". The pseudonym of this 'anonymus' can be disclosed thanks to a comment by a contemporary learned reader. He noted on p.86 that he had already found this treatise in a work of 1604, and that it was reprinted again in the volume of Theatrum chemicum. On the basis of these references, the author is easily discernible: it is Martin Sendivogius. His text was reprinted after the first edition of the "Novum Lumen Chymicum" in 1604 (Ferguson II, 367), omitting the preface. The learned men added this in a clean Latin handwriting on three leaves at the end of the work. It is interesting to note that Ruland's work was also thoroughly studied and dictated by Isaac Newton. Martin Ruland, 1569-1611, also known as Martinus Rulandus or Martin Rulandt, a famous German alchemist, a disciple of Paracelsus, was Rudolf II's physician. The copy studied and annotated by Newton is part of The Frederick E. Brasch Collection of Newton and Newtonian now at Stanford University Library. The book is very rare. We can trace only one copy (this copy) at auctions in the past 50 years (Zisska & Kistner, 2004, sale 43, lot 447, sold EUR 1725). - Visit our website for additional images and information.

Fue uno de los primeros que en utilizar la palabra Atlas para designar a un conjunto de mapas, y estimuló a Abraham Ortelius a hacer el primer atlas moderno. Posteriormente Mercator comenzó a elaborar su propio atlas que consistía en una versión corregida de los mapas de Ptolomeo.Lamentablemente, Mercator falleció en 1594 sin haber terminado su atlas.

         Delineatio Regiae Civitatis Candy [Ceylon / Taprobana / Sri Lanka]

      Uncommon early view of the city of Ceylon -now Sri Lanka-, shown from above, intricately engraved; it shows a fortification at the center of the city, flanked at East by a river, and giving an idea of the architecture of the town. Four men in local costumes, in civilian and war-like attires, also illustrate the image. The island was under Chinese control until 1505, when the Portuguese first made an attempt of colonization; in 1517 the colony became permanent until the arrival of the Dutch in the early years of the 17th century, led by Joris de Spilbergen; this view likely represents the city under Dutch rule. Following a period of unrest, the Dutch finally settled and ruled the island for almost two centuries. Published in De Bry's "Little Voyages", a collection of voyages to the East Indies.

He never published a second volume, but started a new work which combined his observations on the aconite with the delphinium. Very good copy of a monograph on the herb aconite with fine engravings and early lithographs.

Aristophanes c. 446 ? c. 386 BC, known as the Father of Comedy, was a comic playwright of ancient Athens. Eleven of his forty plays survive virtually complete. These, together with fragments of some of his other plays, provide the only real examples of a genre of comic drama known as Old Comedy, and are used to define it. Aristophanes has been said to recreate the life of ancient Athens more convincingly than any other author. His powers of ridicule were feared and acknowledged by influential contemporaries; Plato singled out Aristophanes' play The Clouds as slander that contributed to the trial and subsequent condemning to death of Socrates although other satirical playwrights had also caricatured the philosopher.

(OCD 2nd ed. 658) The themes are for example: 'die Lust (hêdonê, 29-33), sokratische Liebe (18-22), platonische Theologie (11), 'daimones' (8-9), Gebet (5), Weissagung und freier Wille (13), das Böse (41) und Wiedererinnerung (10)'. (Neue Pauly, 7,1074/75) Maximus Tyrius was widely read by humanists like Ficino, Bessarion and Poliziano. The 'editio princeps' was published in 1557 by the French scholar/publisher Henricus Stephanus. The next important and authorative edition was published in 1607 by the Dutch scholar Daniel Heinsius, 1580-1655, who was in 1607 librarian of the University of Leiden. In 1609 he succeeded as professor of Greek his praeceptor Josephus Justus Scaliger. The first 300 pages of the first part of this book contain the Greek text of the 'Dissertationes', followed by a number of Pythagorean fragments, and by 27 pages 'castigationes' on Maximus Tyrius by Henricus Stephanus. The pages 329-386 contain the Greek text of Alcinous' handbook of Platonism 'Introductio in Platonicam philosophiam'; the pages 387-408 contain Diogenes Laertius on Plato. The second part contains Heinsius's Latin translation of Maximus Tyrius and Alcinous; added are 33 pages with a Latin translation of the earlier mentioned Pythagorean fragments, made by the Dutch scholar Willem Canter. At the end 27 pages filled with Apuleius's 'De Deo Socratis liber, qui Maximi Dissertat. de eodem respondet'. Part 3 contains the notes of Heinsius. Heinsius based his edition of Maximus Tyrius on that of Stephanus, but 'quae corrupta erant emendavimus, quae obscuriora, leviter illustravimus'. (Part 1, leaf *6 recto) But he was a conservative and reserved text critic, 'Nobis', he explains 'temeritas nunquam placuit, et si quid in autoribus peccandum est, timidus videri malo quam audax'. (Part 3, leaf a4 recto/verso) Heinsius also produced the Latin translation and notes. In a 'Lectori' to the third part Heinsius tells that the French scholar Isaac Casaubon sent him a manuscript of Maximus Tyrius's 'Dissertationes'. It arrived too late for amending the Greek text and Latin translation, but Heinsius used it for and in his notes. Heinsius received also some excerpts (excerpta quaedam) of Sixtus Arcerius, and the Heidelberg professor Marquard Freher, 1565-1614, sent him a manuscript from the Palatine Library) (Provenance: Armorial bookplate of the barony 'Sinclair', a shield divided into 4 fields, flanked by 2 griffons, a baron's coronet on top, above which a peer's helmet with mantlings, and a crest, consisting of a swam on its nest. Each of the four fields is filled with what seems a ship under sail. Old manuscript shelfmark on and under the bookplate. The motto reads: 'Fide sed pugna', 'with faith, but with fist') (Collation: *8, 2*4 (leaf 2*4 verso blank); a-u8, x4, y-cc8; pi2, b-dd8, cc4, a-k8) (Photographs on request)

         Novo teatro di machine et edificii

      Padua, 1607. FIRST EDITION. Engraved title and 42 full-page engravings. Contemporary vellum, remnants of ties, title in ink on spine; signature and date (eighteenth century) crossed out on title, initials and notation to front and back paste-downs, very minor spotting and browning, overall an excellent copy. First edition. This was the first of many works detailing and illustrating machinery (including those by Ramelli, Besson, Strada, etc.), all based upon the unpublished Trattado di architectura by Francesco di Giorgio Martini (1439-1501). Indeed, according to Norman, even Leonardo da Vinci had owned and annotated a copy of Francesco's treatise. Zonca's images, copied by many later writers, include inventions for mills such as a water mill running silk-spinners and a water-powered grain mill operated on a boat moored in a river, copper plating and printing presses, a barbeque spit turned by gears and a windmill, as well as a perpetual motion machine. "The work is noted for containing the first printed illustration of a gig-mill for raising nap on cloth, and for spreading knowledge of the mangle" (Norman). Zonca (1568-1602) was an Italian mechanical engineer. His book on machines went through four editions, and some of the plates were even published in a 1627 Chinese work on European mechanical arts, Qiqi Tushuo by Johann Schreck and Wang Zheng.
