         La Magdelaine Penitente, Poème divisé en Cinq Livres.

      Paris, Chez la Veuve Iean Camusat, 1643. - in-4. 10ff. 78pp. Parchemin souple de l'époque, dos recouvert de papier au XVIIIs. avec une pièce de titre en maroquin rouge (manques de papier) Edition Originale de ce poème de Louys Le Laboureur, poète et linguiste français (c. 1615-1679). Il remplit les fonctions de bailli de Montmorency et consacra ses loisirs à la culture des lettres. Il fut l'un des acteurs de l'évolution linguistique en France avec la publication de son ouvrage "Avantages de la Langue Françoise sur la Latine" (1667), qui marque la naissance de la querelle des Anciens et des Modernes. La "Magdelaine Penitente" est précédée d'un texte théorique intitulé: "Sentimens de l'autheur sur la poésie Chrestienne et Profane". L'ouvrage est dédié au comte d'Alais, gouverneur de la Provence car, dit l'auteur, "n'est-ce pas la Magdelaine qui a planté la Croix dans la Provence ?". Exemplaire un peu déboité, avec une auréole marginale. Il a été donné par l'auteur et porte cette inscription manuscrite de l'époque au pied du titre : "Ex. Lib TP doctr. S. Juliani paris. Ex dono Auhoris". [Attributes: First Edition]

         L'oceano imboschito, in cui pati funesto naufraggio Emanuel Sosa, cavalier portoghese. Storia descrita dal Dottore Don Giacinto Marmosa da Somera Accademico eruditissimo, scientifico, & universale [actuall by Giacomo Maria da S. Remo]

      1643 - First edition. 16mo. [4], 212p. [4], half-title,first leaf and last 2 leaves blank (the second of these pasted down), contemporary vellum, lettered in ink on spine, library stamps to half-title, title-page and final leaf, very slight and occasional worming in margins in quire D, unaffecting text. Pavia, [s.n.] The bookwas reprinted in Milan in 1672, and then in Parma in 1675, 1692, 1693, and 1694. The author there is given as the Minorite friar Giacomo Maria da San Remo who seems to be disguising himself, as was common in Italian academies, under a pseudonym 'Giacinto Marmosa da somera'. His somewhat purple dedication to his fellow academicians -?alli signori accademici eruditissimi, scientifici, & universali?- conjures up a whole band of musical instruments whose music could not soften the bitterness encountered by the poor Don Manuel. The work is apparently the account of a shipwreck. It is a fictional creation, although it has a basis in fact as Manuel de Sousa Sepulveda existed. He was born about 1505, was originally destined for the church, but departed for India, and had a distinguished military career there. In June1552 he and his family aboard the galleon Sao Joao, sailing from Calcutta, were shipwrecked of the coast of Natal near the Cape of Good Hope. They were captured by native inhabitants, and came to an unfortunate end. The story captured the popular imagination. A brief account of the affair attributed by some to Alvaro Fernandes, a survivor, was first published in Portuguese in [1554]Historia da mui notavel perda do galeao grande de S. Joao.Of this there seem to have been more than one edition including one from 1625. This text included as the first short item in volume I of Bernardo Gomes de Brito's compilation of Portuguese shipwrecks,História trágico-marítima, em que se escrevem chronologicamente os naufragios que tiveram as naus de Portugal, depois que se poz em exercício a Navegação da índia.In 1985 Manuel Simoens edited it with other similar texts. The story however circulated widely. It was known to Camoens, who refers to it (with no names, which shews how well known it was) in Os Lusiadas (Book V). The earliest known version of the original account appeared in the Jesuits Maffei?s Historiarum indicarum libri XVI (Florence, 1588). A year later in 1589 Francesco Serdonati translated the whole into Italian as Le istorie delle Indie orientali. Both were published by the Giunti firm. In 1603 a French version by Francois Arnault de La Borie was published at Lyon, and also in 1603 Fray Antonio de San Ramon, in his Historia general de la Yndia oriental gave the story in substantially the same form as in Maffei's version, but in an enlarged and amplified translation. Jeronimo Corte Real's posthumous epic poem in 17 cantos, Naufragio e lastimoso sucesso da perdiqam de Manoel was published in 1602, and later translated into Spanish. The story entered the theatre also and both Tirso de Molina and Lope de Vega wrote plays on the subject (see !!!). The story clearly repaid retelling, and as here, embellishment. It is surprising that Coleridge, who raided so much travel literature, does not use it. The present work (a densely printed text; 32 lines to a full page in small type) contains eleven chapters (or ?appendici?), beginning with an elaborate account of the armada which set out from Calcutta, and ending with an account of the cavaliere?s funeral followed by his widow?s funeral address. It is in fact a paean to the joys of conjugal devotion. There is then a twelfth chapter with verses in various genres, including acrostichs of his and her name, all in Italian, except for one set of Latin verses in which the Manuel laments his own and his wife?s misfortunes. It is clear that the work is in no way modelled on the story as told. It is all, of course, purely imaginary. It is a novel, which, in part at least, reminds one of the type of tale of adventures, misfortunes and separation (but not the joyful reunion)which occ

Prynne was a contentious and erudite Puritan attorney and legal antiquarian who wrote several books and pamphlets about legal history, religion and politics. He had an unrivalled ability to antagonize others. His personality and choice of targets eventually led to his disbarment, imprisonment, and mutilation (loss of ears) by the Star Chamber. After the Restoration Prynne was appointed Royal Archivist in the Tower of London. A product of his antiquarian interests, the Opening of the Great Seale is a discussion of the role and significance of the great seal affixed to state documents.

It is in the province of Llérida (or Lleida) in Catalonia, but the name derives from Basque.Aside from his struggles with Portugal, which had declared its independence in 1640, Philip IV of Spain had to deal with a rebellion in Catalonia, which, having been deprived of its ancient rights and privileges, had requested Louis XIII's protection in 1640. The Thirty Years? War (1618-1648), originally a religious conflict between Catholics and Protestants within the Holy Roman Empire, had by this time widened into a battle between the Bourbons and Habsburgs: hence the French at this time supported both the Catalans and the Portuguese. The War significantly affected the outcome of the Portuguese struggle for independence (the Restauração), since it prevented the King of Spain from directing his full military might against Portugal.*** Arouca R208.

"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."

         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.

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.

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]
