"During the English Civil War, Bristol was a key port on the west coast of England and considered strategically important by both Royalists and Parliamentarians. Initially, the leadership of Bristol wanted to keep the city neutral in the conflict. In 1642, city officials implored Thomas Essex not to occupy the city with his Parliamentarian forces. The city was weakly defended, and Essex entered without much resistance. During the conflict, Bristol was used as a receiving point for the Royalists to accept reinforcements from Ireland.The town was well fortified by the Frome and Avon rivers, as well as a medieval castle, which had been bought by the corporation when the First English Civil War broke out in 1642, and during the Parliamentary defense, earthen artillery forts. . In February 1643 [Nathaniel] Fiennes was sent down to Bristol arrested Colonel Thomas Essex the governor, executed the two leaders of a plot (Robert Yeamans and George Bouchier) to deliver up the city, and received a commission himself as governor on 1 May 1643. On the arrival, however, of Prince Rupert on 22 July, although the place was in no condition to resist an attack, Fiennes held out until Rupert's troops had actually forced an entry into the City and further resistance was both hopeless and a waste of life."OCLC records 3 US holdings [Harvard, UI, Yale] for the first title, and 7 holdings of the second.

         La Transilvania

      Artist: Cantelli da Vignola Giacomo ( - 1695) Modena; issued in: Modena; date: ca 1686 1643 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: colored; - condition: Perfect condition; - size (in cm): 42 x 46; - description: Map shows Treansilvania. 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. By 1541, the entire Balkan peninsula and most of Hungary, Moldavia, Wallachia, and Transylvania were under Ottoman suzerainty, preserving partial or full internal autonomy until the mid-19th century.( Transylvania until 1711). In 1600 it was ruled by the Wallachian prince Michael the Brave (Mihai Viteazul), who was considered, later on, the precursor of modern Romania and became a point of reference for nationalists, as well as a catalyst for achieving a single Romanian state.;; -vita of the artist: Giacomo Cantelli da Vignola (1643 - 1695) was an important Italian cartographer and engraver Cantelli was born in Montorsello, near Vignola Italy to a prominent local family. After studying literature at the University of Bologna, Cantelli took a position as secretary to the Marquis Obizzi de Ferrara. Eventually Cantelli relocated to Venice where developed an interest in cartography. He later traveled to Paris in the company of the French ambassador where became acquainted with the French cartographer Guillaume Sanson, as well as his contemporaries Jacques-Andre Duval and Michel-Antoin Baudrand. It was most likely the influence of these innovative French cartographers that inspired Cantelli's careful and meticulous approach, in which he based his cartography not just on earlier maps, but also very much in the French style upon accounts written by travelers and merchants regarding actual travel to foreign lands. Back in Italy, Cantelli took service Count Rinieri Marescotti, with whom he traveled extensively throughout Italy, becoming in the process acquainted with the Italian publisher Giovanni Giacomo de Rossi. It is with Rossi that Cantelli began officially publishing his maps. The earliest maps to bear the Cantelli-Rossi imprint date to 1672 and detail the Holy Land, Persia, and the Ottoman Empire. Around 1680 the duo also began to publish the Mercurio Geografico, a large format atlas illustrating all parts of the world in a splendid Italian baroque detail defined by elaborate finely engraved cartouche work, high quality paper, and bold Roman lettering, and dark rich inks. Some have compared his style go that of Giovanni Antonio Magini, another Italian cartographer of the previous generation. Cantelli da Vignola in fact pioneered the Italian style of fine bold engraving that would eventually be embraced and expanded upon by Vincenzo Coronelli. His work drew the attention of Pope Innocent XI and Reggio Francesco II d'Este, the Duke of Modena, both of whom offered him a position as court geographer. Cantelli chose to work with the Due of Modena, in the service of whom he produced numerous maps and well as two large globes.

         Magnes sive de arte magnetica opus tripartitum

      Cologne: Iodocum Kalcoven, 1643 - Magnets and the Magnetic ArtSecond Enlarged and Corrected EditionKIRCHER, Athanasius. Magnes sive de arte magnetica opus tripartitum quo praeterquam quod universa magnetis natura, eiusque in omnibus. Artibus & Scientiis usus, nova Methodo explicetur, è viribus quoque & prodigiosis effectibus Magneticarum, aliarumq; abditarum Naturae motionum in Elementis, Lapidibus, Plantis & Animalibus elucescentium, multa hucusque incognita Naturae arcana per Physica, Medica, Chymica, & Mathematica omnis generis experimenta recluduntur. Editio Secunda post Romanum multò correctior. Cologne: Iodocum Kalcoven, 1643.Second edition, corrected and enlarged by Kircher shortly after the first edition of 1641 was published. Octavo (7 7/8 x 6 inches; 200 x 152 mm.). [28], 797, [1], [38] pp. Complete with the additional engraved title-page, engraved vignette on title. Thirty-two engraved plates (including full page woodcuts on pp. 196, 197, & 198) and numerous engraved and woodcut text illustrations, including music. Contemporary yapp-edged vellum, spine lettered in manuscript. All edges stained red, later endleaves. Small expert repair (one inch square) to blank area on title-page due to removal of ownership stamp and not affecting any text on verso. Three very small marginal paper-flaws, some leaves lightly toned, a few leaves with light, mainly marginal water-stain, otherwise a complete, fine and clean copy. This edition was rewritten and expanded from the first edition in quarto. Kircher's definitive work on magnetism and electromagnetism (a term coined by Kircher in this work), which he conceived as a universal force of nature. Kircher carefully compiled measurements of magnetic declination from several places around the world, as reported by Jesuit scholars, and particularly by his disciple Martin Martine, who in a letter suggested the possibility of determining longitudes by the declination of a magnetic needle. Recognizing the importance of this method, Kircher brought it to the attention of the scientific world. An extensive chapter discusses the magnetic properties of the planets. Kircher's Magnes is filled with curiosities, both profound and frivolous. The work does not deal solely with what modern physicists call magnetism. Kircher discusses, for example, the magnetism of the earth and heavenly bodies; the tides; the attraction and repulsion in animals and plants; and the magnetic attraction of music and love. He also explains the practical applications of magnetism in medicine, hydraulics, and even in the construction of scientific instruments and toys. In the epilogue Kircher moves from the practical to the metaphysical - and Aristolelian - when he discusses the nature and position of God: "the central magnet of the universe." Practically all of Kircher's works begin with an illustrated title-page. Sometimes these were changed even for later issues of the same work, as for this second and greatly enlarged edition of his Magnes. Sommervogel IV 1048.6; Merrill 5.

"The book's uncommon popularity was mainly due to Wassenberg's able and briskly narrated condensation of the War's events in a slender, readable quarto volume" (cf. ADB). - II: Rare pamplet, listed only in the BSB by VD 17: apparently the earlier of two variants, of which the other is not paginated and mentions the author in the slightly differently worded title: George Baron Kunitz, Imperial envoy to the Turkish court and present during the Siege, had left the manuscript behind during his flight. The catalogues of Austrian National Library and Vienna City Library list only this latter variant (also held at Admont, according to Kábdebo), while Sturminger also cites a copy of our present variant in the Austrian National Library. The engraving (mentioned only on the title page of the other variant) depicts the Battle of Vienna. - III: Remarkable Strasbourg legal dissertation about military desertion by J. A. Hammer from Regensburg (one of two variants with different dedications). - IV: Only known copy of this encomium of Elector Max Emanuel of Bavaria, who had fought in the 1683 Battle of Vienna and, together with the commanders of Lorraine and Waldeck, had achieved the victory of Esztergom and had recaptured Nové Zámky in 1685. The Regensburg jurist Sebastian Seelmann, a member of Harsdörffer's "Pegnesian Order of Flowers" since 1668 (under the name of "Silvius"), is mentioned on the title page as Secretary to the Elector. As evidenced by the characteristic hand-written spine title, this volume once formed part of Seelmann's own library, and it is likely that he assembled the volume personally in this order for binding.

      First edition. Portugal, which had been annexed to Spain in 1580, rose against Spanish rule in 1640 and its independent monarchy restored under João IV. During Portugal's years of "Spanish Captivity" many came to believe that a Messianic deliverer would rescue the country from its misfortunes (see Boxer, Portuguese Seaborne Empire, pp. 372-4). Lyra's Espelho is a reading of Portuguese history in the light of Psalm 43. The work aim to represent three periods of the history of Portugal as mirrored in said psalm: beginning with the fortunate period up to João III (d. 1557), then the calamitous times of King Sebastian (killed fighting the Moors in North Africa) and Spanish rule, and culminating with the providential events leading to the restoration, with João IV as the herald of a new glorious age for the kingdom. One engraved plate with engraved royal arms of the House of Portugal. Lyra (1616 - 1691) was a Portuguese Doctor of Theology at the University of Salamanca, Canon of the See of Funchal. Very rare, we could only trace copies at Harvard, Newberry, and a different, later, edition at the British Library. Not in COPAC. No copies have ever appeared for auction.

      London printed for Edw. Husbands and are to be sold at his shop in the middle Temple. March 28 1643 - small 4to., 8pp., title printed within a typographical border, in a fine early 20th century binding by Riviere of full polished calf, spine gilt and labelled, inner gilt dentelles. A fine copy. First edition. Wing W.542. Sir William Waller, 1598?-1668, a senior Parliamentarian army officer, is said to have been dubbed 'William the Conqueror' on account of his numerous military successes (Portsmouth, Farnham Castle, Winchester, Arundel, Chichester, &c. &c.). 'At the beginning of 1643 royalist successes in the west threatened the Severn valley and Bristol. On 11 February 1643 the earl of Essex appointed Waller major-general of the west. He reached Bristol after rapid night marches but with only 2000 men: this lack of men was to be a continuing source of friction between him and Essex. In late March, after another night march, he had a ‘great victory’ when he took Malmesbury in Wiltshire, where the enemy quickly surrendered, in part persuaded by Waller's noisy pretended preparations for an assault under cover of darkness (A Letter from Sir William Waller to Essex of a Great Victory at Malmesbury>, 23 Martii, 1643). He had suffered, however, from the half-heartedness of some of his men and a shortage of ammunition, and it was a costly victory. Nevertheless his successes continued.' [Barbara Donagan in ODNB]. The present report to his C.-in-C. is a vividly detailed account of the battle. [Attributes: First Edition]

         Danicorum Monumentorum libri sex.

      E ipsis antiquitatum tenebris et in Dania ac Norvegia extantibus ruderibus eruti. Hafniæ [Kbhvn.]: Joach. Moltke 1643. Med kobberstukket titelblad af Simon de Pas og rigt illustr. med træsnit visende runestene i Danmark, Skåne, Halland, Blekinge og Norge, + et stort foldet træsnit visende en detaljerig gengivelse af det ældste guldhorn, fundet 1639. 4to. [24] + 526 + [18] s.+ Regum Daniæ Series duplex et Limitum inter Daniam & Sveciam Descriptio. Ex vetustissimo Legum Scanicarum Literis Runicis in membrana exarato Codice eruta et notis illustrata. Havniæ: Trykt af Melchior Martzan på bekostning af Joachim Moltke 1642. 4to. [12] + 36 s. Paralleltekst i runeskrift og latin trykt i rødt og sort. Rent og velholdt eksemplar på skrivepapir og med bred margin indbundet i ét samtidigt helskindsbind med ny ryg i gammel stil. På for- og bagperm C.H. Helwerskovs super-exlibris. Ole Worm er den nordiske oldforsknings grundlægger, banebrydende runolog og skaberen af den første større danske museum. "Danicorum Monumentorum" er Worms hovedværk og indtil udgivelsen af Wimmers runeværk det eneste forsøg på at give en fuldstændig samling af alle på den tid kendte danske og norske runeindskrifter, systematisk beskrevet landsdel for landsdel. Ole Worm lagde med sikker hånd et skema, som har været gældende for runologiske arbejder lige til vore dage. "Monumenta" er et storværk i det 17. århundredes litteratur og vil altid være uundværligt, ikke blot på grund af oplysninger, der ikke haves andetsteds, men som eneste kilde for runeindskrifter, der senere er forsvundne. Forlægget til de mange illustrationer er udført af Jon Skonvig. Medindbundet er et af Worms vigtige antikvariske værker i den første udgave. Ad 1: Bibl. Danica II, 585-86. Bibl. Norv. III, 3668. Skougaard III, l42-43. Thesaurus 727. Ad 2: Bibl. Danica III, 23. Fiske, Runic lit., 83. Ekspl. har også tilhørt folkemindesamleren H. P. Hansen, Herning. Ole Worm founded Nordic prehistoric studies, made the pioneer runological studies and founded the first Danish museum of any size. "Danicorum Monumentorum", Worm's major work - a major work in all of the antiquarian literature of the 17th century - is the book about the Danish and Norwegian runic monuments and their topographical locations. The drawings for the illustrations were made by Worm's assistent Jon Skonvig. See "Christian IV and Europe", 1509. Houghton, Danish Literature, 21.

         Manuscript in Japanese characters on paper with nine full-page richly colored anatomical drawings. 20 folding leaves (two of which are blank). 8vo (241 x 173 mm.), orig. wrappers (wrappers somewhat wormed), manuscript label on upper cover "Zofu zusetsu" ["Explanation of Intestinal Organs"]

      Japan: ca. late 16th century or early 17th century. An important manuscript. In 1304, Seizen (or Joka or Shozen) Kajiwara (1266-1337?), a priest and physician, wrote the Toni-sho [Medical Excerpts urgently Copied], a translation of an unidentified Chinese book (though Needham states it is based on Yang Chieh's Tshun Chen Huan Chung Thu of 1113 [Illustrations of the True Form of the Body], the oldest extant illustrated anatomical treatise in Chinese), with additions from Kajiwara's own experiences as a doctor. It is the oldest extant medical work in the Japanese language; several manuscript copies are known to exist. In 1313, Kajiwara rewrote the Toni-sho, greatly enlarging it and the work was now called Manan-ho [Myriad Healing Prescriptions]. "Of particular interest is the 54th volume which was an anatomical atlas with some descriptive text, the pictures probably having been copied from some pre-existing Chinese work - the original source unfortunately not specified. Later on (exactly when is uncertain) this atlas came to be known by the separate title of Gozo roppu-no-zu [in Chinese: Wu zang lin fu; in English: Five Intestines and the Six Abdominal Organs]."-Mestler, A Galaxy of Old Japanese Medical Books, Part V, p. 178. The manuscript is divided into two parts. The first eleven leaves (including the first blank), contain nine richly handcolored drawings of the abdominal organs with accompanying text. These are illustrations of the dissected body of Hsi fan Ou, a dissident Chinese leader who was captured and executed in 1045 along with many of his accomplices. His body was received by several doctors who used the opportunity to dissect and examine his internal organs. Draughtsmen were commissioned to make drawings of all the viscera and other parts. The text gives a detailed description all of the organs. The remaining leaves are entitled "Sanzo ben" ['Theory of the Three Organs"] with a note that "teacher Shuhaku Asai in Kyoto told me [the scribe]." This section of the manuscript apparently has remained unstudied and unpublished. Asai (1643-1705), studied under Sanpaku Ajioka and was a contemporary of Ippo Okamoto. The illustrations and text have some minor worming carefully repaired. ❧ Needham, Science & Civilization in China, Vol. 5, Part V, p. 112.

      - Alden & Landis 698/203 (6 copies); Cordier, Japonica col. 407; Palau 312228; Sabin 80832; WorldCat (8 copies). Rare first and only edition of an important, comprehensive and influential history of the almost always disastrous Christian missions to Japan, by José Sicardo (1643-1715), mostly an account of the European and native Japanese Christian martyrs of the late 16th and early 17th centuries, stopping around 1638. It is divided into three books, the first giving a general account of Japan and of the Augustinian mission there, with detailed information about the exchange of embassies between Japan and the Philippines. Books two and three cover the martyrs in chronological order, with a list in the last chapter of book 3. The work closes with an extensive table of contents and an index. Sicardo was a Spanish Augustinian who was appointed professor of theology at the University of Mexico in 1688. Although he never visited Japan, he had extensive contact with other missionaries and drew extensively on the publications of earlier missionaries in Japan. Since the Japanese excluded most of Europe from their trade and other contacts at this time, Sicardo's account gave most Europeans their primary view of the country.With minor foxing on the title-page and last few leaves, and an occasional minor marginal defect, but still in very good condition and with generous margins. With the spine somewhat browned, some sewing supports broken, the ties on th back board lost and a few scrapes and scratches, but the binding is still good. A rare major contribution to the history of Christian missions in Japan, written in Mexico and published in Madrid by the printer to the King of Spain.

         Universalis 46 provinciarum Ordinis ff. Minorum Capucinorum per Universam Europa Delineatio

      Torino 1643 - Carta storico-geografica tratta dall'atlante "Chorographica descriptio provinciarum et conventuum F. F. Minorum S. Francisci Capucinorum.". L'atlante delle province cappuccine era stato iniziato in forma manoscritta dal ministro generale dell'ordine, padre Silvestro da Panicale nel 1632 e doveva servire da sussidio geografico per le visite generali. Alla sua morte il successore Padre Giovanni di Montecaliero, al quale spesso viene erroneamente attribuita la paternità delle carte, incaricò padre Massimino da Guechen di proseguire l'opera. Gli incisori delle lastre furono appunto Massimino da Guechen, Bernardino Burdigalensis e Ludovico Monteregali. La prima edizione fu stampata a Roma nel 1643, la seconda a Torino nel 1649 e quindi nel 1654 ed infine un'altra uscì nel 1712. Per convenzione attribuiamo le mappe al Montecalerio. L'opera mostrava visivamente la diffusione dell'ordine, infatti le diverse carte dell'atlante, che rappresentano nazioni e province, offrono per ognuna di esse la statistica completa dei conventi. Taken from the "Chorographica Descriptio Provinciaru & Conventum F. F. Minorum S. Francisci Capucinorum.". The atlas of the Capuchin provinces was initiated in manuscript form by the minister general of the order, Father Silvestro from Panicale in 1632 and was to serve as an aid for geographic General visits. At his death, the successor Father Giovanni from Montecaliero, which is often mistakenly attributed the authorship of maps, commissioned by his father Massimino Guechen to continue the work. The engravers of the plates were executed by Massimino from Guechen, Bernardino Burdigalensis and Ludovico Monteregali. The first edition was printed in Rome in 1643, the second in Turin in 1649 and then in 1654 and finally released in 1712, another convention attribute maps to Montecalerio. The work showed visually the spread of the order, in fact the different maps of the atlas, which represent nations and provinces, to offer each of them the full statistical convents. Copperplate, very good condition. Rare. Dimensioni 675 495mm [Attributes: First Edition]
