The work is based on Kircher's visit to Sicily in 1637-38 in which he witnessed the eruptions of Etna and Stromboli. His observations of these volcanoes led him to conclude that the centre of the earth is a massive internal fire for which the volcanoes are mere safety valves. The work is not only geological and Kircher continues with fantastic speculations about the interior of the earth, its hidden lakes, rivers of fire and strange inhabitants. It includes discussions about the moon, the sun, eclipses, ocean currents, meteorology, hydraulics, minerals and fossils, poisons, metallurgy and mining, alchemy, herbs, astrological medicine, distillation and fireworks.

         Arcis Uraniburgi, a Tychone Brahe, dno de Knudstrup, in Insula Hellesponti Danici huenna Constructae, quo ad totam Capacitatem, de signatio.

      Artist: Blaeu Willem Janszoon ca ; issued in: Amsterdam; date: ca1665 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Perfect condition; - size (in cm): 46,5 x 57; - description: Map shows the observatory of Tycho Braha (Uraniborg) in Öresund, Denemark. From Astronomiae instauratae mechanica (1598).The building was dedicated to Urania, the Muse of Astronomy, and it was named Uraniborg, The Castle of Urania. It was the first custom-built observatory in modern Europe, though not the last to be built without a telescope as its primary instrument.; - vita of the artist: Joan Guilliemus Blaeu was the eldest son of Willem Janszoon Blaeu (1571-1638), and was probably born in Alkmaar in the province of Noord-Holland in the final years of the 16th century. He was brought up in Amsterdam, and studied law at the University of Leiden before going into partnership with his father in the 1630s. Although his father Willem had cartographic interests, having studied under the Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe and having manufactured globes and instruments, his primary business was as a printer. It was under the control of Joan that the Blaeu printing press achieved lasting fame by moving towards the printing of maps and expanding to become the largest printing press in Europe in the 17th century.By the 1660s the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum (or Atlas Maior as it had became known by this time) had expanded to between 9 and 12 volumes, depending on the language. With over 3,000 text pages and approximately 600 maps, it was the most expensive book money could buy in the later 17th century. The translation of the text from Latin into Dutch, English, German, French, and Spanish for several volumes created enormous work for those involved in typography and letterpress activities. It is estimated that over 80 men must have been employed full-time in the Blaeu printing house in Bloemgracht, not including engravers who worked elsewhere, with over 15 printing presses running simultaneously, and in 1667 a second press was acquired at Gravenstraat. At the same time as producing the Atlas Maior, Blaeu was also publishing town plans of Italy, maps for globes, and other volumes. At its peak the Blaeu press managed to produce over 1 million impressions from 1,000 copper plates within four years.

         Pianta di Roma come si trova al presente colle alzate delle fabbriche piu nobili cosi antiche come moderne

      La pianta del Cruyl, pubblicata per la prima volta nel 1665 dalla tipografia De Rossi, è una delle rare immagini della città che presenta contemporaneamente sia un impianto iconografico che prospettico. Le vedute presenti in questa pianta sono le stesse che furono poi oggetto di specifiche vedute intagliate dall'artista fiammingo, quasi come una sorta di catalogo personale. La prima edizione della pianta è stampata da Giovanni Battista De Rossi nel 1665. Sono note una ristampa con l'aggiunta di alcune vedute dei luoghi notabili ad opera di Matteo Gregorio de Rossi (1696) e questa ulteriore tiratura a cura di Carlo Losi, datata 1773. Incisa da Giulio Testone, su due matrici di rame, tracce di pieghe di carta, alcune abrasioni, nel complesso in ottimo stato di conservazione. Opera molto rara e ricercata. Magnifico esemplare della tiratura di Carlo Losi. Etching with engraving, 1665. A fine impression, with plate tone, of the third state of three, printed on 2 sheets of contemporary laid paper, full margins, very good condition. This map was published for the first time in 1665 by De Rossi; it is one of the rare images of the city depicting, at the same time, an iconographic and perspective system. The views are the same that the Flemish artist engraved afterwards as a sort of personal catalogue. The first state has been printed by Giovanni Battista De Rossi in 1665. The plate was then published by Matteo Gregorio de Rossi in 1696 and finally reissued by Carlo Losi, in 1773. It has been engraved by Giulio Testone on two copper plates. A very rare and important map of Rome. A great example. Huelsen 110; A. P. Frutaz, "Le piante di Roma", CLIV, tav. 343; M. Gori Sassoli (a cura di), "Roma Veduta" p. 175, s. 31; C.

Pfeiffer Augustus (1640-1698) Pfeiffer era considerato un famoso orientalista del suo tempo e un importante, seppur controverso, difensore dell'ortodossia luterana. Dedito in giovane età allo spiritismo mistico di Christian Hoburg, se ne allontana in seguito, da studente, sotto l'influenza dei suoi professori. Sottolineò l'ortodossia e il primato del luteranesimo ortodosso sia contro il cattolicesimo romano (luteranesimo prima di Lutero) che contro i pietisti, in cui fu coinvolto con Philipp Jakob Spener in una disputa di lunga data sulla speranza cristiana. È considerato uno dei teologi che ha fortemente influenzato la fede e il pensiero di Johann Sebastian Bach. 18mo secolo [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         Discours sur les causes du débordement du Nil.

      Paris: Jacques Dallin, 1665 - Quarto (252 × 183 mm). Contemporary full calf, raised bands to spine, compartments gilt with floral lozenges within double ruled panels, presentation gilt stamp to the front board, "Aux Capuchins de St. Honoré". Light browning, a little rubbed on the boards and chafed on the joints, but a very good copy. Engraved map of the topography of the Nile to the text, title page vignette, historiated initials, engraved head- and tailpieces. First edition, for the first time published separately, previously included in his Pensées of 1634 and 1662; uncommon, just six copies on OCLC, three of them in the US. Cureau was Louis XIV's doctor, the monarch apparently having been impressed by his ability to judge character from outward appearance. A precursor of Lavater, Cureau's was indeed best known for his work in the area of physiognomy, but he also published on physics – the nature of light, on rainbows – the occult, and philosophy, the final paper here being a study of the divine in Platonic philosophy. The critic Jean Chapelain, his contemporary, said of him: "C'est un excellent philosophe, et dont les écrits sont purs dans le langage, justes dans le dessein, soutenus dans les ornements, et subtils dans les raisonnements." This could perhaps be a presentation copy, as in addition to the gilt supralibros there is an inked inscripton, "Pour les Capucins de St. Honoré" to the title page. The Capuchin convent adjoined the Tuileries gardens. The Blackmer copy with bookplate to front pastedown. Blackmer Catalogue 171; Ibrahim-Hilmy p. 351. [Attributes: First Edition]

      A dictionary of medicinal remedies for more than 300 ailments, written in French and arranged alphabetically by the names of the ailments. It covers a very wide range of ailments from insomnia and menstrual problems to gangrene and even hypochondria, but especially noteworthy at this early date are the five pages (pp. 7-11) devoted to the eating disorders anorexia, pica (the eating of things that are not food) and bulimia. It begins with a list of weights and measures, sometimes giving equivalents (p. 1), followed by the alphabetical entries (pp. 2-604) and additions on epilepsy, tobacco oil and other subjects (pp. 605-621). After numerous blank leaves, the manuscript ends with a 9-page glossary with brief definitions of about 100 technical terms (a 2-page table of contents plus pp. a-i).What appears to be the oldest inscription on the endpapers, at the head of the first free endleaf, reads, "Faron m[aî]tre en chiru[r]gie". Little seems to be known about him, but is probably the Luc Faron, "maître chirurgien" in Paris whom a 1665 document describes as the second husband of Elisabeth Le Tellier. The dating is problematic and leaves may have been added during the writing of the text, possibly for decades. Some of the late additions to the manuscript are written in a different hand.With numerous contemporary and 19th-century inscriptions on the endleaves. A couple bifolia slightly loose, an occasional transparent ink stain (never obscuring the text), an occasional dried drop of what may be medicines, and a few leaves with minor and mostly marginal water stains, but still in good condition and only slightly trimmed, leaving generous margins. The binding is slightly loose and a group of quires has shifted toward the fore-edge, with a few worm holes in the boards and spine, some cracks in the hinges and only fragments of the ties.

         Nova et accurata Transylvaniae descriptio

      Artist: Janssonius/Hondius H Johann ca ; issued in: Amsterdam; date: ca1665 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 39 x 49,50; - description: Map shows Transylvania, typical heard shape. With detailed representation of all cities, forests and mountains. Transilvania is a historical region located in what is today the central part of Romania. Bound on the east and south by its natural borders, the Carpathian mountain range, historical Transylvania extended westward to the Apuseni Mountains. The region of Transylvania is known for the scenic beauty of its Carpathian landscape and its rich history. It also contains major cities such as Cluj-Napoca, Bra_ov, Sibiu and Târgu Mure_. The Habsburgs acquired the territory shortly after the Battle of Vienna in 1683. In 1687, the rulers of Transylvania recognized the suzerainty of the Habsburg emperor Leopold I, and the region was officially attached to the Habsburg Empire.; - vita of the artist: Johannes Janssonius (Jansson),( 1588- 1664) Amsterdam was born in Arnhem, the son of Jan Janszoon the Elder,a publisher and bookseller. In 1612 he married Elisabeth de Hondt, the daughter of Jodocus Hondius. He produced his first maps in 1616 of France and Italy. In 1623 Janssonius owned a bookstore in Frankfurt am Main, later also in Danzig, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Berlin, Königsberg, Geneva and Lyon. In the 1630s he formed a partnership with his brother in law Henricus Hondius, and together they published atlases as Mercator/Hondius/Janssonius.Under the leadership of Janssonius the Hondius Atlas was steadily enlarged. Renamed Atlas Novus, it had three volumes in 1638, one fully dedicated to Italy. 1646 a fourth volume came out with English County Maps, a year after a similar issue by Willem Blaeu. Janssonius' maps are similar to those of Blaeu, and he is often accused of copying from his rival, but many of his maps predate those of Blaeu and/or covered different regions. By 1660, at which point the atlas bore the appropriate name Atlas Major, there were 11 volumes, containing the work of about a hundred credited authors and engravers. It included a description of most of the cities of the world (Townatlas), of the waterworld (Atlas Maritimus in 33 maps), and of the Ancient World (60 maps). The eleventh volume was the Atlas of the Heavens by Andreas Cellarius. Editions were printed in Dutch, Latin, French, and a few times in German.
