Aguilon (François d'). Opticorum libri sex, 1st edition, Antwerp: ex officina Plantiniana, 1613, half-title, engraved allegorical title-page and 6 headpieces after Peter Paul Rubens by Theodor Galle, one engraved and numerous woodcut diagrams in the text, publisher's woodcut device to final leaf, browning, smudge to half-title, light worming to head of gutter from quire 3* to S, small worm-hole in lower margins from quire A, becoming more extensive from quire 3C to 3I and reducing thereafter, bookplate of Michael Jaffé, 20th-century mottled half calf, folio (34.2 x 22.5 cm) (Qty: 1)NOTESProvenance: 1) 'Da livraria do Marques de Alegrete, artes ciencia, CX6' (early ink inscription to half-title verso); the marquessate of Alegrete is a title in the Portuguese nobility created in 1687 by Pedro II. 2) Michael Jaffé CBE (1923-1997), English art historian and director of the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge (bookplate). Jaffé wrote three substantial books on Rubens: Rubens (1967); Rubens and Italy (1977); and Rubens: catalogo completo (1989). Becker 6; DSB I p. 81; Judson & Van de Velde, Book Illustrations and Title-Pages (Corpus Rubenianum Ludwig Burchard XXI) , 10; Norman 25. D'Aguilon's 'master treatise on optics' (DSB) is a synthesis of the works of Euclid, Roger Bacon, Kepler, Arab scientist Ibn al-Haytham (Alhazen), and others. 'A remarkable collaboration between the scientific, printing and visual arts ... Aguilon's work ... contained the first discussion of the stereographic process (which Aguilon named), one of the earliest presentations of the red-yellow-blue colour system, an original theory of binocular vision and the first published description of Aguilon's Horopter' (Norman). It is also the first published book with a title-page designed by Rubens, and is considered 'a landmark of baroque book illustration' (Becker); Rubens's title-page combines allegory, myth and architecture in a symbolic representation of optics not only as the queen of mathematical sciences, but also as a form of spiritual knowledge (see Bertram, Elevating Optics: The Title Page by Peter Paul Rubens of Franciscus Aguilonius’s Opticorum Libri Sex (1613) in its Historical Context, Explorations in Renaissance Culture (online), volume 42, number 2, 2016).

He was present at all of Spinola’s campaigns but died in 1629 in the plague that swept through the Spanish army at Rheinberg.

Thomas William Bowlby (1818-1860), correspondent for The Times, one of the first British foreign correspondents. Original manuscript diary documenting Bowlby's daily experiences in China where he was sent by The Times to report on the Second Opium War in 1860. The diary ends abruptly on 16 September when it is known that Bowlby was captured and tortured to death - leading to, in retaliation, Lord Elgin ordering British troops to destroy Yuanmingyuan, the Old Summer Palace in Beijing (its sacking and looting leaving an open wound in Anglo-Chinese relations). The diary records his outward voyage, including his account of the wreck of SS Malabar in Galle harbour on 22 May. In the diary, Bowlby repeatedly refers to Lord Elgin, Baron Gros, Henry Loch, Harry Smith Parkes, Oliphant, Sir Hope Grant. On 19 August, Bowlby describes going out with Sir Robert Napier and his preparations for attack. The author has not inscribed his own name in the diary but numerous entries (and the provenance) confirm his identity, for example: 'The English mail arrived to-day...unfortunately no copy of The Times with my letter published on the 27th was sent, Had one letter from Whitall referring to it. He says every one is reading it with the greatest interest' (26 August). On 15 August, Bowlby records the following: 'Went carefully over the camp this morning. The Chinese loss must have been great and the wounds inflicted by the Armstrong [gun] are perfectly awful. It smashes whatever it comes in contact with, such a thing as a flesh wound being quite impossible. Going round the walls I passed a mass of Chinamen drowned in the ditch in their frantic efforts to escape - one poor fellow was moored by his feet in the mud - the water rose with the tide first above his mouth and then he stood drowned. After the camp was taken yesterday a poor inoffensive inhabitant - one of the very few who had not fled - was bayonetted by a French soldier & killed - his wife & daughter were inconsolable and attempted to commit suicide by drowning themselves. This was prevented but an hour after they promised to refrain from self destruction on giving this promise they were released rushed at once to the river threw themselves in and were drowned. During these few hours the French were in the place there was a regular organised looting...Even John Bright or Sir Robert Peel would become volunteers on seeing their conduct in an invasion - they are cursed with a mania for destruction'. Bowlby often refers to the issue of looting, including this entry on 4 July: 'The crew jumped overboard & most of them were drowned. These ships were laden with merchant goods, rice oil, but there were no munitions of war, notwithstanding this they were carried off to Ta Lien Hwan & there given over to loot. One midshipman has sent down 60£ worth of Sycee silver to be placed to his account at the Bank here and I learn that one gallant captain noted for his exploits in this way has made a large haul...I am sorry to say that this mania for loot has taken complete possession of the navy - officers & men - few commanders try to check it and there is nothing - not even the leading articles in the Times - more likely to loosen the bonds of discipline'. The opening pages of the diary appear to be Bowlby's preparatory notes/research about the current situation in China, as well as various statistics and translations of phrases/proverbs. The diary is well-filled with copious notes, entirely handwritten in bold black ink. The diary itself is a Letts's Diary or Bills Due Book and Almanack for 1860, in publisher's gilt cloth with marbled endpapers and all page edges, in very good condition, well-preserved in a full calf case bearing embossed 'Diary' to upper board and protective brass clasp/lock. The silk page marker still sits on that final diary entry, 16 September, with offsetting to the pages on either side indicating that it has always been so. An important journal by one of the first British foreign correspondentsProvenance: In 2015 the vendor attended a country house sale in Carlton Scroop, Lincolnshire - 'Instructions of Col. and Mrs Patrick Bowlby' - where she purchased an Ottoman box for her daughter; the box contained a number of books, including this diary. NB: In 1906, Bowlby's son privately published An Account of the Last Mission and Death of Thomas William Bowlby, in which he describes his late-father's diary as running from '26th April to 16th September' (these dates, together with the quotes, perfectly matching this diary - again confirming the identity of the author)
