         1648 Francis Bacon Natural History v Philosophy Scientific Experiments Puritan

      Lugduni Batavorium: Franc. Hackium, 1648. - 1648 Francis Bacon Natural History v Philosophy Scientific Experiments Puritan “Some books should be tasted, some devoured, but only a few should be chewed and digested thoroughly.” Francis Bacon Francis Bacon, one of the most famous English philosophers and scientists of the Renaissance. While most of his work deals with discovery, scientific method, and the scientific revolution, he did lean strongly toward Puritanism in his personal devotion. An extremely rare Elzevier printing of Bacon’s “Historia Naturalis,” or ‘Natural History.’ While Elzevier does not appear on the imprint or title page, Willems makes mention that Hackiana was an extension of the house of Elzevier. In this work, Francis Bacon sought to show the divisions of natural history, but more importantly to show how natural history overlaps with natural philosophy and they are not two distinct disciplines. This book helped lay the foundation for many philosophical methodologies that would be important through the 18th- and 19th-centuries. Item number: #1898 Price: $750 BACON, Francis Fr.

La primera de ellas es, en realidad, un tratado explicativo de la geometría proyectiva de Girard Desargues, a quien se considera su fundador por ser el primero en adoptar un punto del infinito como elemento de referencia. Bosse, que se había formado en la materia con el propio Desargues, ya había dedicado anteriormente, en 1643, dos obras a difundir gráficamente su teoría(1). El propio Desargues dejó escrito en la nota inicial fechada en octubre de 1647 que precede al texto de la primera de las reunidas en este volumen, Manière universelle de Mr Desargves, pour pratiquer la perspective par petit-pied, comme le Géométral, sentirse plenamente comprendido y bien interpretado. Bosse lo hizo dividiendo su tratado en dos partes: Premiere partie de la regle de la pratiqve de la perspective, povr les traict des figvres, D'assiette, d esleuation, de profil & d'ombre ou d'ombrage y Seconde partie de la Regle de la pratiqve de la perspective, povr les places et proportions des Fortes & Foibles Touches, Teintes ou Coleurs, e incluyendo, dentro de la obra, en las páginas 321-338, la reedición del breve tratado de teoremas geométricos conocido como 'Perspective', que Girard Desargues había publicado en 1636 con el título de Exemple de l'une des manieres universelles du S.G.D.L. touchant la pratique de la perspective sans emploier aucun tiers point, de distance ny d'autre nature, qui soit hors du champ de l'ouvrage.

         La Biblioteca Aprosiana

      Manolessi. Two parts in one volume, 12mo (137x69 mm). (10), 733 [i.e. 683], (1 blank) pp. Roman and Italic type. With a frontispiece engraved by Giovanni Mattia Striglioni after Domenico Piola, showing the inside of a library with, on top, the coat-of-arms of Giovanni Niccolò Cavanna, dedicatee of the work and friend of the author. The second part opens with a separate title-page on p. 667. At l. C12r half-page woodcut illustration depicting an Egyptian stele. Contemporary green morocco, panels within gilt frame, richly decorated gilt spine with four raised bands and red morocco lettering-piece, marbled endpapers. Reference notes in English by an eighteenth-century hand on the front flyleaves. A fine copy. RARE FIRST EDITION, financed by the dedicatee Giovanni Niccolò Cavanna and edited by Lorenzo Legati, of the catalogue of the first public library of Liguria, the Aprosiana Library, named after its founder, the Augustinian Friar Angelico Aprosio, and established in 1648 at the Augustinian monastery of Ventimiglia. The library contained over ten thousand volumes (cf. L. Gavazzi, Angelico Aprosio, la Biblioteca Aprosiana e il complesso di Sant'Agostino a Ventimiglia, Ventimiglia, 2010). The work consists of a list of the collection supporters - the "Fautori" -, arranged in alphabetical order by first name. For each "Fautore", the author gives bio-bibliographical notes and describes the books donated by him to the library. In most cases the donor is also a writer or a scholar who gave to the library works of his own. The catalogue interrupts at the letter C. The continuation (up to letter M) remained unpublished and is known only in an autograph manuscript that Aprosio prepared for printing, which is today preserved at the University Library in Genoa. The second part of the volume contains the Biblioteca Aprosiana cantata by Pier Francesco Minozzi. The name of the author is concealed behind the pseudonym of Cornelio Aspasio Antivigilmi, actually Aprosio's anagram including also the name of his hometown, Ventimiglia. Angelico Aprosio entered the Augustinian order at the age of fifteen. He lived for a while in Genoa and Siena, before moving to Monte San Savino (1632-1634), where he taught philosophy and met the lifelong friend P.F. Minozzi. From there he moved back to Genoa in 1634. From 1637 to 1648 he was in Treviso and Venice, where he made the acquaintance of G. F. Loredan and Pietro Michiel, on whose libertine book Arte degli Amanti he wrote a commentary. Aprosio was also in touch with other learned scholars like L. Mancini, G. Scioppio, and L. Allacci. In 1647 he was invited by Giuliano Spinola, whose son was a pupil of Aprosio, to go back to Genoa. In 1648 he finally found a house for his already conspicuous library in the monastery of his order in Ventimiglia. In 1653 the library was officially recognized by Pope Innocent X, who issued a ban prohibiting the sale of any of its books, and was open to the public. In the following years, Aprosio dedicated himself to increasing the library, enlarging the monastery to host the volumes, and compiling the library catalogue. The library was partly dispersed in 1798 upon the arrival of the French troops and with the suppression of the Augustinian order. Part of the volumes ended up in the National Library of Genoa. In his last years Aprosio corresponded with G. Naudé, F. Redi, Gronovius, the cardinal Mazarin, and above all with Antonio Magliabechi. Aprosio died in 1681. La Biblioteca Aprosiana is also the most important source about his life (A. Asor-Rosa, Aprosio, Angelico, in: "Dizionario Biografico degli Italiani", III, 1961, s.v.). Melzi, I, p. 69; Brunet, I, 325; Peignot, 77..

And the House gave him Thanks, for his Pains and Zeal and good Assections expressed in his Desires of settling of a safe and well-grounded Peace; and, upon Occasion, they will consider of them in convenient Time'. [from the House of Lords Journal, Volume 10, entry for 6 July, 1648]. The pamphlet is dedicated to the Earl of Manchester, \lquote Speaker of the House of Peers\rquote . Edward Montagu, 2nd Earl of Manchester (1602-1671) was a prominent commander of Parliamentary forces early in the Civil War, and for a time was Oliver Cromwell's superior officer. He was in supreme command at the battle of Marston Moor, but by November 1644 he strongly expressed his disapproval of continuing the war, and in 1645 he resigned his command. Thereafter he played a leading role in negotiations for an arrangement with the King. He opposed the trial of Charles, and retired from public life during the Commonwealth.\fs22 He \fs24 actively assisted the Restoration of Charles II, and in 1661 he was made a Knight of the Order of the Garter. Richard Farrar was also the author of \i An expedient for the king, or, King Charles his peace-offering, sacrificed at the altar of peace, for a safe and well-grounded peace the welfare and happiness of all in generall, and every subject in particular. Farrar\rquote s plea that he be given 'free liberty from both Houses of Parliament to repair to his Majesty to the Isle of Wight, & there to deliver him the particulars in writing, and by discourse' was not granted, although some negotiations with the king were held at Newport. (In November 1647, Charles had fled his army guards and escaped to the Isle of Wight). At the end of 1648, Charles was moved to Windsor Castle, and in January 1649, the House of Commons indicted him on a charge of treason, passing a bill creating a separate court for his trial. On January 30, 1649 he was executed. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

A Fine copy, tightly bound, pages fresh and bright, with excellent impressions of the plates; minor marginal staining to first few leaves, repairs to explanatory leaf opposite first frontispiece. Pforzheimer 390 and 92 (for first editions). Lowndes 847 (citing this edition of The Holy State as "best"). Wither to Prior 386 and 387. Wing F2438 and F2444. Allibone, p. 643. The Holy War is the third edition, with re-engraved title page (Pforzheimer). The Holy State is the second edition, enlarged. Based on Fuller's extensive reading in medieval sources, The Holy War is the first modern history of the crusades in English. In his judgment, the Papacy, in waging them, had spent European lives and wealth for nothing more than a faraway plot of land and a few relics. The Holy State and The Profane State, Fuller's celebrated studies in virtue and vice--"the most popular and characteristic of all his books" (ODNB)--provides rule of conduct, offering as exemplars a rich collection of model characters, along with short biographies of historical figures from Queen Elizabeth and Sir Francis Drake to St. Augustine and Joan of Arc. Allibone calls it, "Perhaps . . . the best of his works; and certainly [it] displays to better advantage than any his original and vigorous powers of thinking." Note: With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed. Fine.

         Le Theatre du Monde, ou Nouvelle. Atlas Mise en lumiere Par Guillaume & Jean Blaeu. Quatrieme Partie.

      Amsterdam, 1648. - Copper engraved with early hand colour Folio 540 x 330 mm Volume four of six from the French edition of the Theatre du Monde. The volumes of this work were published separately between 1635 and 1655, with the fourth volume being introduced with French text in 1645. This particular volume features a hand coloured pictorial frontispiece, highlighted with gold, and 58 general and county maps, each superbly coloured by a contemporary hand. Throughout the text, 4 hand coloured illustrations are present. The series of lavishly illustrated maps includes a separate map of each county, and is one of the greatest achievements of English seventeenth century cartography. In excellent overall condition, this atlas features a fine period binding with gilt title and decoration. Blaeu published his first world atlas in 1639, which was gradually extended until the appearance of the celebrated Atlas Major of twelve volumes in 1662. The maps were mainly derived from those in Speed's Theatre, and the order followed that of Camden's Britannia, first published in 1607. The cartographic detail, including the errors, were copied from Speed or Jansson, and their similarity to the latter's maps has caused problems for collectors, although there are certain minor difference between the maps of the two atlases. Whilst the Blaeu decoration is somewhat more formal than his rivals', each atlas is of great cartographic importance. The presentation of the Jansson and Blaeu atlases, however, in large vellum bound folios invariably exceed that of Speed's work. The Blaeu family were one of the most famous publishers of maps, globes and atlases during the seventeenth-century. Cartographers, globe makers and booksellers, the Blaeu business flourished in Amsterdam for over 40 years, until a fire destroyed their premises in 1672. They lost all of their plates, prints and stock, which effectively ruined the firm. Willem Blaeu founded the business in 1596. It initially functioned as a globe and instrument makers, but soon expanded into maps, topography and sea charts. The Atlas Novus was Willems great work; a major work which intended to include the most up-to-date maps of the entire world. He issued the first two volumes in 1635, but died in 1638 before the atlas was completed. The running of the business was passed on to his sons Johannes and Cornelius, in addition to the role of the official cartographer of the East India Company. After the death of Cornelis in 1644, Johannes continued the business alone and established his own reputation as a great mapmaker. Johannes completed his father's grand project in 1655 with the sixth and final volume of the Atlas Novus. He also produced the Tooneel der Steden van der Vereenighde Nederlanden in 1649-1653, as well as a similar set of Italian town plans which were published in 1663. Skelton 43. Not in Chubb (but compare 59). Kinglsey 12(ii) Condition: Excellent overall condition. A small number of the maps feature light creasing and water stains to the margins, however, this does not effect the engraved area. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Lvg. Batavor : Apud Franciscum Hackium, 1648. First edition. - 1648 1st ed Francis Bacon Sylva Sylvarum New Atlantis Philosophy Opium Healing “Some books should be tasted, some devoured, but only a few should be chewed and digested thoroughly.” Francis Bacon Francis Bacon, one of the most famous English philosophers and scientists of the Renaissance. While most of his work deals with discovery, scientific method, and the scientific revolution, he did lean strongly toward Puritanism in his personal devotion. This book ‘Sylva Sylvarum’ with ‘Novus Atlas’ is a famous set of philosophical treatises covering topics such as medical treatments for prolonged life and preservation of youth by using opium! Bacon wrote this book as a collection of miscellaneous topics – others include ancient wisdom and secrets. This Latin translation was edited by Jacob Gruter and includes a preface by William Rawley. Rawley, Bacon’s secretary, decided to add the unfinished but fascinating ‘New Atlantis’ to the end of this printing of ‘Sylva’. In 1648, both Elzevier and Hackiana published examples of this work; however, Hackiana decided to re-engrave the illustrated title page. Item number: #1228 Price: $599 BACON, Francis Fr.

      1648 - The second edition of Hulsius's German translation from the 1612 edition. 4to. Engraved fignette on the title. Modern boards. 75pp. Franckfurt, Le Blon, Coverte's account of the fourth east india Company voyage to the East Indies, following the first edition published in London in 1612. The author was steward on board the Ascension under Capt. Sharpey they left Plymouth with a companion vessel the Union , in March 1607, and, on their voyage south, were among the first Englishmen to see the Cape of Good Hope, arriving there in July 1608. The Ascension having separated from the the Union in a storm reached India, via Madagascar, Pemba Island and Socotra, the ship ran aground while approaching Surat. Not granted permission to remain in Surat, the crew departed to various destinations. Coverte and others set out for the Moghul Court at Agra, arriving there in December 1609. He and other crew members left Agra in January 1610 ?with the intention of making their way back to the Levant by the overland route. Travelling by way of Kandahar, Esfahan, and Baghdad.they reached Aleppo in December 1610 and from the coast of the Levant sailed for England. They subsequently arrived home in April 1611? (Howgego). An absorbing account presented in the form of a travel diary, Penrose described the work as a ?vigorous narrative.it relates its author's reception by the Emperor Jahangir, and his tedious journey across India, Afghanistan, and Persia, and as such is one of the best examples of a travel journal that the period produced.? As pointed out by Parker ( Books to Build an Empire ) ?This voyage marks the lowest depth to which the company's misfortunes sank in its early years, for the loss of the two ships nearly ruined it financially . during these years of unprededented English travel and trade into the east there was a great dearth of literature describing the voyages of the East India company's ships. between 1608 and 1614 only one book appeared which described England's new-found commerce.

         Carta del P. Juan Gonzalez Chaparro de la Compañia de Jesus, y de la Vice Provincia de Chile, para el P. Alonso de Ovalle y del Manzano, de la misma Compañia, Procurador General en Roma, en que le da cuenta del lastimoso suceso del terremoto que huvo en la ciudad de Santiago de Chile en Indias

      First edition. An exceedingly rare imprint giving news of the earthquake that shook and destroyed Santiago de Chile, in May 1647, dated from Lima, 13 June, 1647, from where Gonzalez Chaparro wrote to Father Ovalle, to provide him with news of the natural disaster. Poetically, the author states that tears instead of ink, would a more suitable material to write these sad news. "Primera edición" (Medina). The imprint was translated into French, under the title "Relation de l'horrible tremblement, qui a ruyné ... la florissante Cité de S. Jaques de Chile", in the same year. Father Ovalle (1601 - 1651) was one of Chile´s most prominent historians, he author a rare relation of the Peace achieved with the Araucanian Indians, and the foremost history of Chile up the first half of the 17th century "Historia relacion del Reyno de Chile" (1646). The earthquake happened two years after the publication of Ovalle´s work, so this is probably the earliest extant report of the natural disaster, an event of great magnitude for the history of the region. Very rare, we find only 4 institutional copies, none have appeared in the market or for auction. Medina, Biblioteca hispano-chilena, 123. Palau, 105269.

         A treatise of the safe, internal use of cantharides in the practice of physick.London, Jeffrey Wale, John Isted, 1706. 8vo. 19th-century tanned half sheepskin, tree-marbled paper sides.

      Blake, p. 187; ESTC T64914; for the author: Cook, "Groenevelt, Joannes (bap. 1648, d. 1715/16)", in: ODNB (online ed.). First English edition of a treatise on the medicinal use of Spanish Fly ( Lytta vesicatoria, traditionally classified in the family Canthardiae). Joannes Groenevelt (1648-1715/16)) was a Dutch-born physician, practising in London from 1675 on. Greenfield strongly advocated the use of Spanish fly, primarily for the treatment of gout and bladder and kidney diseases. One of his patients accused him of malpractice and Groenvelt was fined and sent to Newgate prison, but obtained permanent freedom through William III's general pardon in 1691. He published the present treatise on the use of Spanish fly as a vindication of his methods. It includes a laudatory poem by Bernard Mandeville, detailed descriptions of the various medicinal uses of Spanish fly, followed by medical observations and several recipes. In good condition, waterstain in lower margin, some browning. Boards slightly browned.

         The adventures of (Mr T. S.) an English merchant, taken prisoner by the Turks of Argiers, and carried into the inland countries of Africa.London, Moses Pitt [printed by William Wilson?], 1670. Small 8vo. Blind- and gold-tooled calf (ca. 1800).

      Cox I, p. 362; Playfair, Algeria 155; Playfair, Morocco 244; Wing S152. First edition of an extraordinary account of an English merchant mariner's capture by Barbary pirates in or soon after 1648 and his subsequent adventures as a slave in Algeria. It is presented as an authentic journal of T[homas?] S[mith?], posthumously prepared for the press by his friend A. Roberts. The author is certainly well-informed on the Ottomans in Africa and his story may be partly based on true events, but many of the details are clearly fantasy, with monstrous beasts and people turned to stone, in addition to tall tales of his own adventures. In the story he sets off from the Thames in the Hamburg merchant ship Sancta Maria in July 1648 and the ship is captured by Barbary pirates soon after. As a slave under numerous masters the author tricks his way into employment as cook to the King of Algiers, is then demoted to keeper of the King's bath and secretly fathers a daughter with one of the King's wives. After an unsuccessful stint as a gardener's assistant he journeys in the service of an Ottoman officer, collecting tribute money with the Algerian army, and offers his services as an advisor to the Ottoman governor of Tlemcen (northwest Algeria). With an owner's initials, manuscript bookplates and library stamps. In good condition, very slightly browned and with a small chip at the head of two leaves, affecting only the page numbers. First edition of an English merchant's marvellous adventures in Ottoman Africa.

         Historis Journael van de Voyage Gedaen met 3 Schepen uyt Zeelant naer D'Oost-Indien onder het beleyt van den commandeur Joris van Spilbergen... Als meede Beschryvinge vande Tweede Voyage ghedaen met 12 Schepen na d'Oost-Indien onder den admirael Steven vander Hagen

      Amsterdam: Joost Hartgers, 1648. Small quarto, woodcut on title and double-page engraved plate with six vignette illustrations; very faint staining to top corner of some 20 leaves; an excellent copy in contemporary half vellum. Very rare: this Amsterdam printing of two Dutch East Indies Company voyage accounts includes one of remarkably few surviving printed records of Willem Jansz and the Duyfken.This is the fifth edition of this account of Joris van Spilbergen's voyage, first published in 1604. This is, however, the first edition to contain the important supplementary account of the Van der Hagen voyage (see below), which was also the first stage of the Duyfken voyage. It is the only separately published edition of any account of the Van der Hagen voyage - and thus the only separately published record of the voyage that would culminate in the first authenticated sighting of the coast of Australia.The first part of the book deals with Joris van Spilbergen's voyage to Sri Lanka, which was sent out by a group of Zealand merchants in 1601 and successfully established the first trading link between Sri Lanka and the Netherlands. His fleet of three ships visited the Cape of Good Hope and then sailed directly to Sri Lanka, where Spilbergen negotiated with the king of Kandy, promising military assistance against the Portuguese. The narrative of the voyage includes a record of daily events and considerable material on life and customs in Sri Lanka. Earlier editions of Spilbergen's account appeared in Delft in 1604 (several issues) and 1605, and in Amsterdam in 1617. The text also appeared in several of the voyage anthologies that the Dutch made a habit of publishing including Commelin's Begin ende Voortangh of 1645, Hartgers's Oost-Indische Voyagien of 1648 and Saeghman's Verscheyde Oost-Indische Voyagien of 1663-70. The Hartgers anthology appearance is the same as the present volume, which with its own title-page was intended for separate publication as here as well as for inclusion in the compendium volume. This was not the case with the appearance of the text in the Commelin anthology, the various components of which were not separately published and did not have separate title-pages (Tiele, pp. 158-9).Of greater note is that this was the first edition of the Spilbergen account to contain the final 34 pages (it was also the last to do so as the publisher Hartgers dropped it from his subsequent edition of 1652). These pages contain an account of Steven van der Hagen's voyage of 1603, the first voyage sent out to the East entirely under the auspices of the Dutch East India Company or VOC.Van der Hagen sailed in December 1603 with twelve armed vessels taking about 1200 men, with instructions to attack Portuguese trading ports in India, to take Malacca, and to remove the Spanish from the Moluccas. One of these twelve ships was the Duyfken.Van der Hagen and his fleet reconnoitred the west coast of India, concluding a treaty of friendship at Calicut, and then visited several ports of the Malabar coast and Sri Lanka, and anchored for a while at Acheh. They then sailed for Bantam and continued to the Banda Islands. One ship was sent to the Coromandel coast to pick up cargo; it returned to Bantam where it took on supplies to be delivered in the Moluccas.From the Bandas, Van der Hagen proceeded to Amboina, which he took from the Portuguese in February 1605, followed by a successful siege of Spanish positions on Tidore. Van der Hagen subsequently returned to Bantam, where he took on a substantial cargo. In September 1605 the fleet, without the Duyfken and the Delft - both of which stayed in the East Indies - sailed for Holland.The surviving record of Van der Hagen's voyage is very slender. A four-page announcement of his early victories appeared in Rotterdam in 1606 (Tiele 147). A large broadside engraving and text on a single sheet published in Amsterdam in 1606 also celebrated naval victories. An abridged account appears in Hulsius's collection (volume 9, 1606) and in De Bry's anthology Petits Voyages of 1607. Nothing further appeared in print until Commelin's voyage anthology Begin ende Voortangh of 1645.This Hartgers edition, therefore, is the only separately published account of the voyage itself (as opposed to early "news" reports of victories).The Duyfken, now a very familiar ship to us from the reconstruction built to great publicity in the 1990s, makes her simple appearance in the list of the ships with which Van der Hagen's account begins: number 6 of the fleet of 12 is "Het Duyfken, groot 150, lasten/Schipper Willem Iansz" (p. 63).
