Sala (1576-1637), who converted to Calvinism when his family moved to Geneva from Vicenza about 1602, was the first chemist to perform an experiment in which a synthesis was confirmed by analysis. He also holds an important place in the early history of photography as he was the first to observe, in 1614, that silver salts darkened when exposed to the sun.The years 1602 to about 1612 were Sala's Wanderjahre during which he worked as a physician and pharmacist in a number of cities, including Dresden, Sondrio, Ponte, Nuremberg, Frauenfeld, and Geneva. In 1612, he settled in The Hague where he practiced medicine and gave instruction in chemistry to medical students from various countries. He later moved to Oldenburg, Hamburg, and, due to the troubles caused by the Thirty Years War, several other German cities. In all these cities, he continued his chemical and pharmaceutical researches."Of his nineteen books, only a few have attracted the attention of historians…He followed the teachings of Paracelsus…Sala's chemical ideas proved to be historically influential."-D.S.B., XII, p. 79.

      apud Iuntas, 1622. 2 volumi in un tomo in-folio (366x258mm), pp. (10), 451; (2), 245 [i. e. 247 in quanto sono omesse le pp. 17-18], (153) di indice; legatura coeva p. pergamena rimontata con titolo manoscritto su dorso a 5 nervi. Titolo manoscritto al taglio di piede. Grandi vignette calcografiche ai frontespizi con stemma del dedicatario, papa Paolo V (Camillo Borghese), contornato da figurazioni allegoriche. Una testatina xilografica figurata sormontante la dedicatoria con il Farinacci inginocchiato al cospetto di Paolo V; capilettera, testatine e finaletti istoriati o ornati in xilografia. Testo bicolonne. Antiche note di appartenenza al frontespizio. Sparsi lavori di tarlo. Qualche alone. Seconda edizione giuntina, esemplata sulla precedente del 1618, della prima parte della scelta e del commento del Farinacci alle decisioni della Sacra Romana Rota. Il Farinacci (Roma, 1544-ivi, 1618), illustre penalista, fu Consigliere della Sacra Consulta su nomina di Clemente VIII e Procuratore Generale Fiscale della Camera Apostolica su designazione di Paolo V e giudice inflessibile, noto per la facilità con cui comminava condanne a morte. Noto per aver difeso Beatrice Cenci nel suo famosissimo processo (un altro famigerato processo coninvolse poi lo stesso Farinacci, con l'accusa di sodomia, poi caduta nel nulla solo per la grazia accordatagli da Clemente VIII), i suoi trattati giuridici (primo tra tutti la Praxis et theorica criminalis) condensarono brillantemente le codificazioni del diritto penale sino ad allora elaborate in occidente, facendo scuola per molti decenni, anche se gli studiosi moderni hanno ridimensionato il suo apporto alla storia della giurisprudenza (Franco Cordero lo ha definito "mago dello scibile penalistico confusamente blaterante"; cfr. Criminalia. Nascita dei sistemi penali, Roma-Bari, Laterza, 1985). Camerini, I, p. 346, n. 1254. Cfr. (con bibliografia) Aldo Mazzacane in Dizionario Biografico degli Italiani, volume 45, 1995: "Il Farinacci ebbe fama grandissima fra i contemporanei e i giuristi del tardo diritto comune e del primo ottocento, che tuttavia non mancarono di registrarne la propensione per il malaffare. Oggetto invece di aspre censure da parte degli illuministi, quale rappresentante tipico di un sistema penale da rifiutare, ha trovato nella storiografia moderna giudizi egualmente divisi tra il moderato apprezzamento e la severa condanna. Impegnato nel difficile compito di ridurre a scienza il diritto penale, secondo il Fiorelli, dalle tinte manzoniane con le quali Franco Cordero ha dipinto la penalistica di ancien régime egli appare, al contrario, con le sue nequizie morali e intellettuali, come un esempio di quelle "lingue vendute" che popolano il "circo penalistico" del Seicento.".

         Expurgatio oder Ehrenrettung der armen Kipper und Wipper:

      Frankfurt: Herman Rathweil,, 1622. so mit grosser Leibes und Lebens Gefahr jetziger Zeit ihre Nahrung mit dem Wechsel suchen: wieder die hefftige und ernstliche Bussvermahnung M. Andreae Lampii Pfarrherrn der Kirchen genant bey S. Lorentz zu Hall in Sachsen. Small quarto pamphlet, pp. 20 (193 x 153 mm). Recent quarter vellum, spine hand lettered in ink, brown calf boards. A little light rubbing to extremities and a few marks to boards, contents evenly browned, some small punctures to margins, a very good copy. Early edition of the pseudonymous author's response to Andreas Lampius's work regarding the "Kipper und Wipper" financial crisis during the start of the Thirty Years' War, which prompted a huge surge in pamphlet publications on coinage. In the same year as the city-states of the Holy Roman Empire started to heavily debase currency in order to raise revenue, the clergyman Andreas Lampius (1576-1627) published his essay De ultimo Diablo foetu (1621) in Leipzig. In this he denounced those speculative traders – colloquially known as "Kipper und Wipper" – who profited from the severe inflation as the children of Satan. In contrast, this anonymously published pamphlet defended the traders and suggested that the condemnation of the public should rest not on individuals but rather on the government and those in positions of high authority, such as magistrates, because it was they who made such fraudulent actions necessary. The hand lettered title on the spine mistakenly identifies the author as "Lampius".

      apud Iuntas, Venetiis 1622 - 2 volumi in un tomo in-folio (366x258mm), pp. (10), 451; (2), 245 [i. e. 247 in quanto sono omesse le pp. 17-18], (153) di indice; legatura coeva p. pergamena rimontata con titolo manoscritto su dorso a 5 nervi. Titolo manoscritto al taglio di piede. Grandi vignette calcografiche ai frontespizi con stemma del dedicatario, papa Paolo V (Camillo Borghese), contornato da figurazioni allegoriche. Una testatina xilografica figurata sormontante la dedicatoria con il Farinacci inginocchiato al cospetto di Paolo V; capilettera, testatine e finaletti istoriati o ornati in xilografia. Testo bicolonne. Antiche note di appartenenza al frontespizio. Sparsi lavori di tarlo. Qualche alone. Seconda edizione giuntina, esemplata sulla precedente del 1618, della prima parte della scelta e del commento del Farinacci alle decisioni della Sacra Romana Rota. Il Farinacci (Roma, 1544-ivi, 1618), illustre penalista, fu Consigliere della Sacra Consulta su nomina di Clemente VIII e Procuratore Generale Fiscale della Camera Apostolica su designazione di Paolo V e giudice inflessibile, noto per la facilità con cui comminava condanne a morte. Noto per aver difeso Beatrice Cenci nel suo famosissimo processo (un altro famigerato processo coninvolse poi lo stesso Farinacci, con l'accusa di sodomia, poi caduta nel nulla solo per la grazia accordatagli da Clemente VIII), i suoi trattati giuridici (primo tra tutti la Praxis et theorica criminalis) condensarono brillantemente le codificazioni del diritto penale sino ad allora elaborate in occidente, facendo scuola per molti decenni, anche se gli studiosi moderni hanno ridimensionato il suo apporto alla storia della giurisprudenza (Franco Cordero lo ha definito mago dello scibile penalistico confusamente blaterante; cfr. Criminalia. Nascita dei sistemi penali, Roma-Bari, Laterza, 1985). Camerini, I, p. 346, n. 1254. Cfr. (con bibliografia) Aldo Mazzacane in Dizionario Biografico degli Italiani, volume 45, 1995: Il Farinacci ebbe fama grandissima fra i contemporanei e i giuristi del tardo diritto comune e del primo ottocento, che tuttavia non mancarono di registrarne la propensione per il malaffare. Oggetto invece di aspre censure da parte degli illuministi, quale rappresentante tipico di un sistema penale da rifiutare, ha trovato nella storiografia moderna giudizi egualmente divisi tra il moderato apprezzamento e la severa condanna. Impegnato nel difficile compito di ridurre a scienza il diritto penale, secondo il Fiorelli, dalle tinte manzoniane con le quali Franco Cordero ha dipinto la penalistica di ancien régime egli appare, al contrario, con le sue nequizie morali e intellettuali, come un esempio di quelle lingue vendute che popolano il circo penalistico del Seicento.

         Hero and Leander Begunne by Christopher Marloe, and finished by George Chapman

      London: Printed by G. P. for Edward Blount, 1622. Eighth Edition. about Fine. Small quarto (6 13/16 x 4 15/16 inches; 175 x 125 mm). 96 pp. With woodcut printer's device and headpiece on title-page. Historiated woodcut initials, headpieces and rules separating the sestiads throughout. Marlowe wrote the first two sestiads, and Chapman completed the poem with sestiads 3-6. There are only a handful of copies known of any early editions of this book. The first edition was printed by Adam Islip for Edward Blount in 1598 and comprises only the first two sestiads. The only know copy of this resides at the Folger library. The second edition, also printed in 1598 has the poem completed by George Chapman. This present copy, the eighth edition is quite rare. Only one other copy has appeared at auction since 1906. Full green morocco by Elizabeth Greenhill. Boards double ruled in gilt. Spine stamped and lettered in gilt. Gilt dentelles. All edges gilt. Some very minor sunning to board edges. Leaves occasionally trimmed close, rarely just touching the catchwords or signature marks. Title-page trimmed at bottom edge just touching the date of the imprint, but with no loss. A tiny wormhole beginning at E3, but not affecting text. Some minor contemporary marginalia. Previous owner Thomas Allardes (?) contemporary signature on title-page and verso of title-page. With bookplates of Robert Pirie and Bent Juel-Jensen on front pastedown. Overall an about fine copy. A Shakespeare source book. Both the first edition and this eighth edition were printed by Edward Blount, the publisher of Shakespeare's first folio. The "Only allusion Shakespeare made to a contemporary author was his quotation in As You Like It, 3.5 of a line from Marlowe's Hero and Leander:" (Sotheby's) Dead Shepherd, now I find thy saw of might, "Who ever loved that loved not at first sight?" "Another late work, perhaps Marlowe's last, is the lushly evocative Hero and Leander, a narrative poem based on the sixth-century Greek poem by Musaeus. The work, consisting of two sestiads totaling 818 lines, is apparently unfinished. It was one of a clutch of Marlowe manuscripts copyrighted by John Wolfe shortly after the author's death, but the first edition (1598) was published by Edward Blount, with a dedication to Sir Thomas Walsingham. Another edition of 1598, dedicated to Walsingham's wife, Lady Audrey, contains a continuation of the poem by Marlowe's friend George Chapman. His comment about Marlowe's 'late desires' (Hero and Leander, sestiad 3.207-9) has been misinterpreted: the desire that Chapman should 'to light surrender [his] soules darke ofspring' refers to the publishing of Chapman's own poem, The Shadow of Night (1594), not to the writing or publishing of his continuation of Hero. There is no reason to suppose, therefore, that Chapman began his sequel in Marlowe's lifetime." (Oxford Dictionary of National Biography) ESTC S109875, Pforzheimer 643 (12th edition). about Fine.

         Copia de una carta que escrivio el Padre Tomas de Barros de la Compañia de Jesus en junio de 622. al Padre General, en que declara lo que los de la Compañia hizieron en el imperio de Etiopia, en el dicho año de 622.

      1622 - [?Madrid: s.n., c. 1622.] Folio (295 x 202mm). Late 19th-century calf-backed grey boards by Lloyd, London, spine lettered in gilt; ff. [9]-14; woodcut initial; extremities a little rubbed and bumped, short cracks on joints, some light browning and damp-marking, skillful marginal repairs, that on f. 3 touching text, otherwise a clean copy; provenance: early manuscript foliation in upper margins; Maggs Brothers, London (loosely-inserted invoice dated 1999, sold to:) Bent Einer Juel-Jensen (1922-2006, his Ge'ez booklabel on upper pastedown). Rare first edition. In the second half of the 16th century, Portuguese missionaries established a presence in Ethiopia, which was perceived as a bulwark against Ottoman expansion in the area and the consequent threat to Portuguese colonial and commercial interests. Following the conversion of the Ethiopian emperor Susenyos to Catholicism in 1622, the Jesuits increased their presence and missionary work in the country dramatically, attempting to reform traditional religious practices. These efforts were resented by the Ethiopians, and social unrest and civil war followed, leading to the abdication of Susenyos and the accession to the throne of his son Fasiladas, who rejected Catholicism and eventually either expelled or executed the Jesuits remaining in the country by 1634. The author of this letter to Muzio Vitelleschi, General of the Society of Jesus, was the Portuguese missionary Tomás de Barros (1591-1658). De Barros was born in Coimbra and entered the Society of Jesus in Goa in 1610. He lectured on humanities, philosophy and theology at the Jesuit college in Goa, was the Superior of the missions in Mogor and Tibet, and Rector of Damam, Baçaim (Vasai) and Goa. This letter, written at an important point during the Jesuit expansion of the mission in Ethiopia, is divided into sections reporting the progress of the Residence of Gorgora (Susenyos' capital), and referring to the construction of the cathedral there for Susenyos in 1621 by the Spanish Jesuit Pedro Páez (1564-1622), a 'nuevo y magnifico templo' (f. 10v); the Residence of Colela; the Residence of Ancaxa; and the Residence of Fremona. The work concludes with the 'Carta del Emperor Seltan Cegued' on f. 14v, a letter from Susenyos to Antonio Fernández (1570-1642), the Superior of the Jesuit mission in Ethiopia, who had travelled via Goa to Fremona, arriving there in 1604. In 1613 Fernández was commissioned by Susenyos to undertake an embassy to the Pope and the King of Spain, travelling to Mogadishu via the Blue Nile; however, the party was captured and sent back to Fremona in 1614. Susenyos' letter offers condolences to Fernández on the death of Pedro Páez, who had been sent to Ethiopia in 1603 to attempt to restore relations with the country. Fluent in Arabic, Páez disguised himself as an Armenian and landed at Massawa, from where he managed to travel inland. Having learnt Ge'ez, he was able to establish good relations with Susenyos, and in 1613 persuaded him 'to write to the pope requesting support for the mission, as well as a Catholic patriarch. The missionary was granted land at Gorgora, on the southern shore of Lake Tana, to build a monastery for his order and a palace for himself. Paez travelled widely in Ethiopia, largely in association with Susenyos' military campaigns. In 1618, during the course of his travels, he is credited with the discovery of the source of the Blue Nile. Setting out from Dankaz, he had passed around the northern, western and southern shores of Lake Tana [.], and at the overflow from Lake Tana near Bahardar he described the fountains which he regarded as the source of the only Nile (21.4.[16]18). He travelled to the Atala Falls (=Tisiat Falls) and penetrated southward into the gorge' (Howgego Encyclopedia of Exploration to 1800, p. 782). Susneyos' letter relates his reaction to the news of Páez' death, which 'causà en mi tan gran dolor, que no hallà cosa con que divertirme ni contenerme de derre [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Bertij. The first edition in Latin of all three works. The Amsterdam printer, Michel Colin, published collected editions of the three works in Dutch, Latin and French in 1622. Le Maire's Historia navigationis australis (in Dutch, Spieghel der Australische navigatie) contains the first complete published account of the circumnavigation by the Le Maire-Schouten expedition in search of Terra Australis (1615-1617), which was the first to discover and round Cape Horn. Le Maire's alternative route to the East Indies managed to avoid using the Cape of Good Hope or the Straits of Magellan, and thus did not contravene the Dutch East India Company's charter which stipulated that no other Dutch trading company could use those two particular routes to reach the East Indies. Herrera's Indiae Occidentalis descriptio had first been published in Spanish in 1601 (Descripcion de las Indias Occidentales), but Colin's 1622 editions provided the public with a revised and expanded version of this important work by the official historian to the royal court of Spain. It contains numerous significant early maps of Central and South America and the Pacific Coast. Medina, BHA 455n; Sabin 31540

         Novvus Orbis, sive descriptio Indiae Occidentalis . Metaphraste C. Barlaeo. Accesserunt & aliorum Indiae Occidentalis descriptiones, & navigationis nuperae Austrlis Jacobi le Maire historia, uti & navigationum omnium per Fretum Magellanicum succincta narratio.

      Amsterdam Colijn 1622 - Four parts in 1 volume, folio (36 x 24 cm. approx.), [4], 44, [3], 46-81 [i.e. 82], [1],[1], 2-9, [1] 2-11 leaves, 110 leaves, without final blank, engraved additional title, 17 engraved folding maps, 5 engraved illustrations; light toning, light marginal dampstaining, letterpress title slightly soiled and with small chips to corners. Nineteenth century red roan-backed marbled paper-covered boards, spine lettered in gilt; extremities a bit rubbed. The first complete account of the Le Maire-Schouten expedition around the world, the first to successfully round Cape Horn, and the first edition in Latin, expanding significantly the Madrid edition of 1601. The first two parts of the book concentrate on the New World and include fine maps of Central and South America, with those on the Pacific coast adding a great deal of new geographical knowledge. Of primary importance, however, is the second part containing the description of the great Dutch navigator Jacob Le Maire's 1615-1617 voyage in search of Terra Australis. Le Maire's rounding of Patagonia via Cape Horn impacted navigation in many ways, but principally by dispelling the idea of an imaginary Southland. Michel Colin issued simultaneous Latin, French and Dutch editions of this work, adding three maps not in the 1601 Spanish edition. Copies are known with a portrait of Le Maire, but this is not called for in the list of plates. In addition, the small map on the title-page is noteworthy for being the first cartographic depiction of California as an island. The suite of maps form an early (fourth) atlas of the Americas, principally focused on the Spanish orbit, issued as an encouragement just as the Dutch focus on the Western Hemisphere turned to settlement.

         Capitano de Baroni" bzw. "Le Gueux" (Die Bettler). 25 Radierungen aus der Folge in einem Album.

      1622/23. 1622 - In der Platte "Jacomo Callot in et fc", "Callot fc.", "Callot in et fc" und meist mit der gestochenen Nr. unten rechts. Meist kräftige, gegensatzreiche Drucke auf Bütten. Teils mit winzigem Rändchen um die Plattenkante, alle mit Einfassungslinie oder auf diese geschnitten. Nach Lieure 479-503, teils gegenseitige Kopien (480, 493, 501). Blatt 1 mit dem Titel "Capitano de Baroni" auf der Fahne. Die Reihenfolge und Nummerierung der Blätter weicht teilweise von der bei Lieure angegebenen Nummerierung ab. - Nach dem Tode Cosimo II. de Medici kehrt Callot spätestens 1621 nach Nancy zurück. Die Wahl seiner Sujets wird ernster und als Erster wendet er sich der Darstellung des Alltags, dem Elend auf den Straßen und Märkten Lothringens zu. Seine Folge "Die Bettler" zählt zu den bekanntesten Callots. Mit fester Kontur umrissen, unbewegt fast statuarisch in ihrer Haltung, gibt er die Bettler drastisch und ungeschönt wieder. Die Figuren wenden sich oder zumindest ihren Blick vom Betrachter ab, darin bringt Calot ihre Hilflosigkeit aber auch ihre Verachtung gegenüber der Umwelt zum Ausdruck. - Auf dem Album handschriftlich "Mon di[.] grave par jacque callot complet en 25 pieces prix 6 H 50 T636." und einem Stempel "LELOUTRE [.] a Paris". - Insgesamt von guter Erhaltung.

At the end the famous demonstration of the area of a triangle, considered as fundamental in the history of trigonometry. This is still known as Snellius demonstration and a starting point in basic modern geodesy.
