Ca. 19th century, Manchuria?, 1636. Possibly previously owned by a Japanese monk, this fascinating book comprises the `Sukhavativyuha Sutra` (in 19 leaves) and the `Heart Sutra` (3 leaves) in Manchu, with a parallel translation in Chinese. Manchu, the language spoken and written by the native population of Manchuria, was derived from the traditional Mongol writing system. It was one of the official languages of the Qing Dynasty (1636-1911) of China, but as of 2007 only 20 native speakers of the language remain. Manchu is read from left to right, unlike Chinese and Japanese, so this book is bound appropriately, with the title appearing on the same side as western books. While there is no title page or colophon, this bilingual book offers rare information on the readings and meanings of Chinese characters in Buddhist scriptures through the parallel Manchu translation, and would also be of interest to any researcher of the Manchu language. Chinese binding, softcover wrappers, extremities chipped, title in brush and ink to upper, almost unnoticeable sticker removal to lower. Stain to upper pastedown. Pages lightly browned, extremities occasionally chipped, and with a few minor stains. Reading marks for a Japanese reader in red to the Chinese text on some pages. Folded leaves of a Chinese text have been inserted into each envelope-bound (fukurotoji) page to strengthen the pages. In very good to near fine condition. 1 v. 19, 3 leaves. Text in Manchu and Chinese. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Prynne, William
Amsterdam: Publisher and place of publication not given [Amst, 1636. Please see item description. On offer is an extremely rare Religious tract anonymously written by William Prynne, the controversial Puritan lawyer and pamphleteer opponent of the Church of England during the 17th century. The tract was printed in 1636 by Jan Frederick Stam, the Dutch printer most often chosen by puritanical authors of the period, and was printed while Prynne was imprisoned for life at the Tower of London, along with extremely brutal punishments, for seditious libel from his attacks on many aspects of the English Renaissance theatre. The title page states the work was written by By 'a Wellwisher to Gods truth and people', and the Dedication is signed: A.B.C., i.e. William Prynne. A second edition was published much later in 1661, and although very scarce in any edition, it is exceedingly rare as a first edition, which this copy is. A 12mo (180mm X 145mm) tract bound as a modern hardcover with a more recent dark-brown cloth rebacked spine, leather corner tips, beige boards, and a glued-paper inner hinge reinforcement. pp: 163[173], [2],[1 errata] - pagination error: p165 for p173. Includes head-pieces, ornate initial letters, and printed margin text.

Vague water stain in uppermargin, a few small marginal ink spots and some foxing and browning as may be expected, upper outer corner of second half rounded without any loss of text. First edition. A rare and important work on double-entry bookkeeping. Other than most works of the period it is not concerned with its application to the transactions of merchants and traders, mercantile bookkeeping, but to non-trading activities. Flori was a Jesuit who spent most of his life in Sicily and he wrote this book for the benefit of Jesuit monasteries and colleges. Flori was well acquainted with the writings of previous authors, and particularly praises Angelo Pietra's Indrizzo de gli economi' (1586). He follows that work closely, and recognises his indebtness to his predecessor, but far outpasses it, making numerous important innovations'. Flori was the first author to introduce the concept of a financial year and the possibily to get at any time an overview of the financial situation. It is an outstanding work. Flori's precise and clear-cut definitions and his illustrations of double-entry books testify to his firm grasp of the subject of bookkeeping .'

Item #26886 Spanish theologian Juan Martínez de Ripalda was born at Pamplona, Navarre, where entered the Society of Jesus (Jesuit Order) in 1609. He taught philosophy at Monforte, theology at Salamanca, and "was from there called to the Imperial College of Madrid, where, by Royal Decree, he taught moral theology. Later, he was named censor to the Inquisition and confessor of de Olivares, the favorite of Philip IV, whom he followed when he was exiled from Madrid." Ripalda is described by Southwell as "religious, ... subtle in argument, sound in opinion, clear & focused in expression, and well-versed in St. Augustine & St. Thomas. According to Drews, no Jesuit ever occupied this chair at the University of Salamanca with more honor." Notably, Hurter considers Ripalda, along with Lugo, "first among the contemporary theologians of Spain, and perhaps of all Europe." [Perez Goyena. CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA]. Scarce.

John Gerard; Thomas Johnson [Rembert Dodoens]
Adam Islip; Joice Norton; Richard Whitakers, London. pp 18 [manuscript] pp 39-1562. Incomplete 1636 third edition of Gerard's Herball which contains the vast bulk of Thomas Johnson's expanded text but lacks the preliminaries and title page, the first 38 pages of text, p355-6, the final pages 1563-1630 and the printed index that follows. Even in its incomplete state the book still measures four inches across the spine and is robustly bound in full calf, probably very late eighteenth or early nineteenth century, rubbed and worn to extremities but sound and perfectly usable. At the time of the binding a new manuscript index has been bound in before the printed text which runs to 17 pages, written on Britannia watermarked paper in two columns again around 1800. The first and last few leaves are browned and dog-earred where the previous binding failed during the eighteenth century. A note at the head of the first printed leaf states in an old hand: 'Pages with Plates from 39 to 1562. Page 355 missing.' A little close cropped at times, the text is largely in good to very good with the marvellous woodcuts present throughout and the cornucopious accompanying letterpress text. Owing to its size Gerard's Herball is frequently encountered in more or less incomplete copies - this is one of the nicer ones we have had. This edition of the Herball from 1636 is part of the revived version of the text produced two decades after Gerard's death when it was significantly expanded in size and scope. First published in 1597, the Herball became the most influential botany book in English in the 1 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Jean Camusat. EX-library (Loyola College) with marks on title page: back board has come loose from old repair: both boards show signs of old repairs: leather is flaky and spine is missing parts; paper, especially at front, has flaked. Written in French, this is a history of the Kings of France from the first, King Faramond, who has a plaque but no portrait to Louis XIII, king at publication. In between are brief biographies of each monarch along with an engraved portrait. One or two are like Faramond, with no portrait. The book is in fair shape: the binding is lifting from the boards and the corners are chewed a bit. Please check out the photos and do not hesitate to email for more. The paper has discolored from age and towards the back are some pages with "tidemarks". All pages are intact and the portraits are intact. Some foxing, and some spots from handling.

The physician and scholar Daniel Sennert (1572-1637) united various atomistic theories in the early 17th century and advocated the spread of atomism. Jungius further developed the ideas he published. In his Hypomnemata physicae (Notes on Physics), Sennert summarized his theories, emphasizing the imperceptibility of the 'minima', but referring to observations that suggest their existence. When water evaporates, its particles do not disintegrate, but become undetectably small. His efforts to unite corpuscular theories with the Aristotelian theory of matter brought him recognition in the course of his life, but was later criticized. The assumption that the original atoms are linked to hardly divisible prima mixta influenced the teachings of Robert Boyle (1627-91) and Joachim Jungius (1587-1657) "(see NDB XXIV, … [Click Below for Full Description]

Germano de Silesia (Dominicus Germanus de Silesia)
Rome nella stampa della Sac. Congreg. de Propag. Fede, 1636. First edition. Small 4to (21.5 x 15 cm), pp.[x], 102. With printed Arabic text. A very good copy in contemporary vellum. Vellum slightly soiled. One short internal tear to gutter of first three leaves; early paper repair to margin of title where an ownership inscription has been excised. One quire browned. Small 18th-century owner's armorial seal impression to title. An introductory vernacular Arabic grammar, compiled by Dominicus Germanus de Silesia (1588-1670) for use by Catholic missionaries travelling to the Levant. The Arabic texts comprise a number of prayers, including the Ave Maria, and the general confession, together with transliterations and Italian translations. The vocabulary provided in the course of this grammar is similarly theological in nature. The grammar is an unusually early example of a work compiled by a scholar with many years' practical experience of Arabic. Germanus became a Franciscan in 1624, and studied Persian, Arabic, and Turkish. In 1630 he travelled to the Levant, where he remained for five years. He returned to Rome where he taught Arabic, drawing on his firsthand experience, and joined the Sacred Congregation for the Propagation of the Faith. He published an Arabic dictionary in 1639 and worked on an Arabic translation of the Bible. In 1645 he was sent on a diplomatic mission to Persia, where he remained until 1651. In 1652 he travelled to the Spanish court, where he remained until his death, leaving behind an extensive, but incomplete, translation of the Qur'an in manuscript.

I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. "The past cannot be cured." ― Queen Elizabeth I Sir John Hawyard was a 16th-century English lawyer and historical writer, most known for his accounts on the life and reign of English royalty. After Hayward's death in 1627, a manuscript of his "Life and Raigne of King Edward VI" was discovered and published. This book covers speeches, interaction with Scottish nobility, political decrees, religious convictions during the Reformation, the illnesses of both Edward VI and Queen Elizabeth, and much more! This 1636 edition, while stated second edition, it was the first edition to include an account of the beginning of the reign of Queen Elizabeth. This book includes an added engraved title page, engraved by William Marshall. [Attributes: First Edition]

Barwick [in the district of King's Lynn, Norfolk], 20 May 1636. Manuscript indenture on vellum, concerning multiple feoffment lands and messuages of John Barritt of Barwick, Norfolk, altogether amounting to 119 acres in medieval terms, situated in Barwick, Stanhoe, and North Creake, being granted to his son under the circumstance of marriage. This is a two-part document featuring a long itemized list of properties and two most unusual wax seals with imagery of a human skull. Text is in English, including manuscript docketing to verso. Vellum sheets measure approximately 44,5 x 38 cm and 32 x 43,5 cm, respectively, folded and fastened together at bottom margin with two wax seals affixed to vellum pendants. Some age-toning, otherwise in very good condition, with wax seals and original signatures, beautifully preserved, an unusually descriptive and early land title documents from seventeenth century England. A superb surviving record of early Norfolk land ownership, this is a remarkably detailed document providing historically significant information on the distribution of property, not just for the parties involved, but also their neighbours. The lands being dealt with and changing hands with this document are in the district presently known as King's Lynn and West Norfolk. The region was sometimes referred to as the County of North Fiefdoms of Norfolk in the seventeenth century. Manuscript
