        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. Jesuit Science in the Age of Galileo, Linda Hall Library, 1986, n. 43.

Attractive sammelband with rare pamphlets on the Thirty Years' War and the Turkish Siege of Vienna, a dissertation on military desertion, and a previously unknown encomium on a hero of the Turkish Wars, from the collection of the author of the latter publication, who was a member of the Pegnesian Order of Flowers, a Nuremberg literary society. - I: First German edition; continued by the editor until the year 1643. "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. Front hinge reinforced with old paper; very well preserved. I: VD 17, 23:275673G. ADB XLI, 233. Cf. Apponyi 846 (1648 Latin ed.). - II: VD 17, 12:186448V. Sturminger 1094.

        Espelho de lusitanos em o cristal de psalmo quarenta e tres. Cuja vista em suma, representa este reyno em tres estados. O primeiro desde seus principios, com todas as felicidades, & grandezas suas ate` a morte del rey d. Ioam terceiro. O segundo as calamidades, & infortunios começados em el rey d. Sebastiam, & continuados por todo o governo castelhano. O terceiro estado, as maravilhas obradas por Deus em a felix aclamaçao & restauraçam, del rey nosso senhor dom Ioam quarto com os mais raros casos nella sucedidos, assi em este reyno, como em Castella

      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.

        A letter from Sir William Waller, a Member of the House of Commons, to the Right Honorable Robert Earl of Essex his Excellencie; of a great victory he obtained at Malmsbury, 23 Martii, in the County of Wilts: with the names of divers of the Commanders in chief that he took, with 300 foot, a troop of horse, and many peeces of ordnance. Also a true relation of Sergeant Major Burghells valour, who went into the enemies quarters at Sherston, routed them, took twenty five prisoners, one Captain, two Lieutenants, one quarter-master, billed eight, and took forty or fifty horses and arms, without the losse of one man.

      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]

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.

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.

With the title in a frame of vine-leaf ornaments and 2 woodcut armorial headpieces plus 1 repeat. Contemporary limp sheepskin parchment, later lettered spine-title.

      - 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]

Kopergravure vervaardigd door Josua vanden Ende, 3e staat uitgegeven door Willem Bleau in 1643 als onderdeel van ?Le theatre du Monde?. Rugzijde: Franse tekst. In de tijd met de hand gekleurd. Afm. ca. 40 x 50,5 cm.Rechtsonder zien we een cartouche met schaalstokken en het adres van Willem Blaeu: ?op ?t Water in de Vergulde Zonnewyzer?. Links een cartouche met opgaaf van de steden en dorpen per gewest en een legenda van de gebruikte symbolen. In de Noordzee zien we een 32-delige kompasroos, een zeemonster en vele schepen.Met de val van Antwerpen in 1588 werd een feitelijke scheiding veroorzaakt tussen de Noordelijke- en Zuidelijke Nederlanden en de 17 provincies vielen in twee delen uiteen. Er kwam een grens waardoor de Zeventien Provinci?n werden gesplitst in de Republiek der Zeven Verenigde Nederlanden en de Zuidelijke Nederlanden.Door de emigraties en de politieke situatie verschoof het economische zwaartepunt naar het noorden. De Opstand tegen de Spanjaarden ging door en ondertussen verdeelde het geloof het hele continent in twee delen. Heel Europa was nu een groot strijdtoneel en de conflicten werden pas in 1648 in de Vrede van M?nster opgelost. Daarin werd onder andere de Republiek der Zeven Verenigde Nederlanden door Spanje als soeverein erkend. De scheiding van de noordelijke en zuidelijke Nederlanden was op dat moment definitief.Toch komen er tot ongeveer 1800 regelmatig kaarten van de Zeventien Provinci?n voor. Dat had enerzijds te maken met de enorme kosten voor het veldwerk en het graveren dat voor het vervaardigen van nieuwe kaarten noodzakelijk was, maar kwam ook door de onduidelijke grenzen van het gebied in het oosten en het zuiden van de Zeven Provinci?n.Literatuur: H.A.M. van der Heijden ?Oude kaarten der Nederlanden, 1548-1794", kaart 64.3Prijs: ?1.850,-.

        Manuscrit du Procès de Sorcellerie ayant eu lieu en 1643 à Louviers.

      1643 - Liasses de documents, 121 pages sur l'affaire de la possession de Louviers telle qu'elle fut jugée à Rouen. L'affaire des possessions de Louviers est une série de cas de possessions qui a eu lieu au couvent Saint-Louis-Sainte-Elisabeth des Ursulines de Louviers, en Normandie (France), de 1643 jusqu'à la clôture du procès en 1647. Elle est similaire à l'affaire des possessions d'Aix-en-Provence et à l'affaire des démons de Loudun, survenues auparavant. Il est difficile d'établir si des pratiques licencieuses préexistaient à la venue de Magdeleine Bavent au monastère, vers 1622. Selon les religieuses, elle entre au couvent déjà « débauchée » et devient complice du confesseur Pierre David. Celui-ci, peut-être influencé par les pensées adamites et soutenu par les supérieures, instaure un climat érotique et libertaire où les soeurs se dénudent et se livrent au saphisme. Au décès du religieux bien peu vertueux, le curé Mathurin Le Picard le remplace et, éclairé par la confession de Magdeleine dont il tombe immédiatement amoureux, poursuit la « charnalité » de son prédécesseur, y adjoignant des pratiques de magie et de sabbats. Il est mentionné alors « cinquante-deux religieuses, jouets de leur abominable confesseur ». Le prêtre meurt en septembre 1642, laissant les religieuses aux tourments de leurs « pratiques infernales », ou du moins charnelles. Les cas de possessions démoniaques des religieuses du couvent, l'affaire proprement dite, apparaissent en 1643 après la mort de Mathurin Le Picard et ses actes de sorcellerie et d'affaires de moeurs avec soeur Magdelaine. Les religieuses de son entourage se déclarent chacune habitée d'un démon, possédée, tandis que Magdelaine passe pour ensorcelée . Nommés Behemond, Accaron, Dagon "sous la forme d'un jeune homme" , Encitif pour soeur Barbe de Saint-Michel, Léviathan pour soeur Anne de la Nativité, les démons "accusent", par l'entremise des religieuses, Magdelaine Bavent de les avoir attirés dans le couvent. Elles parlent en langues inconnues, blasphèment obscènement, se convulsent, états constatés en la présence de l'évêque d'Évreux le 2 mars 1643. Elles déclarent aussi converser avec le Diable, apparaissant comme un "bel ange". Magdelaine Bavent, tout en reconnaissant des pratiques immorales et de sorcelleries antérieures, se défend en accusant les soeurs de jalousies, et plus spécifiquement Anne Barré de la Nativité d'être blasphématoire (décembre 1642) puis en commerce avec le Diable (janvier 1643) ayant les traits d'un "jeune homme, mais tout nu" Après les exorcismes pratiqués sur les religieuses, la condamnation à la prison de Magdelaine Bavent et l'exécution du protagoniste masculin (Thomas Boullé, vicaire de Le Picard), les ursulines sont transférées dans d'autres monastères. Bien que le lien entre les trois n'ait pas été clairement stipulé à l'époque, l'affaire de Louviers présente de grandes similitudes avec celles de Loudun et d'Aix-en-Provence, antérieures : des ursulines accusées de possession ou envoutement démoniaque, luxure et immoralité, sorcellerie, sous la coupe d'un religieux initiateur et lubrique qui sera condamné au bûcher (éventuellement post-mortem). Dans le contexte de la chasse aux sorcières de la Contre-Réforme, cette affaire s'inscrit dans la vague de possessions démoniaques urbaines où se mêlent pressions psychosociologiques et intrication de sentiments extatiques et d'exaltation avec des pulsions sexuelles refoulées, peut-être plus spécifiquement liées à des prémisses de féminisme, voire de libertinage.

On pp. 74-94 follows a description of the coasts, shallows and roads useful for sailing the East Indies, including descriptions of the sailing routes from Bantam to Amboina, from Amboina to Ternate and Celebes, from Bantam through the Strait of Balemban and Zabon to Malacca till Achin, from Achin to Ceylon and Puncto Gallo, and from Batavia to Japan (Firando). Van Twist is known through a painting by Jan Baptist Weenix and this posthumously published description of Gujarat. He became chief of the trading post Gujarat in 1635, Cabaya and Bortchia, and governor of Dutch Malacca (1641-42).With the upper part of the leaves slightly waterstained, some leaves cut a bit short and two leaves with false fold slightly affecting the text. Good copy.
