        2 Anatomical Prints-TESTES-BLADDER-REPRODUCTIVE ORGAN-Spigelius-Casserius-1645

      - Very rare anatomical print. Plate, Lib. VIII, Tab. XIII-XIV. Set of 2 plates, showing the male organs kidney, bladder, testes and the penis. As the key to this plate(s) is on the rear of previous plate, as issued, a copy of this key is included when applicable. Copperplate engraving on a verge type handlaid paper. Description: This very fine engraving originates from 'Anatomica operum omnium' by Adrianus Spigelius (Adriaan van den Spiegel), published by J. Blaeu, Amsterdam 1645. This splendidly produced edition of Spigelius' Collected Works was edited by the Dutch physician, Johannes Antonides van der Linden. This folio volume is illustrated with 117 anatomical plates. 78 Of these plates originate from Casserius, intended to illustrate his 'Theatrum Anatomicum', a great anatomical atlas that was still unpublished at his death in 1616. The remainder of the plates was prepared by Bucretius. The complete set of plates is seen as the most important anatomical illustration of the post-Vesalian period, and among the finest produced in the seventeenth century. Since before 1600 Casserius had been working on a fully-illustrated anatomical treatise, which he hired Fialetti to illustrate. His "De Vocis" of 1601 concludes with a promise to publish a treatise on the anatomy of the whole human body with illustrations. However, at the time of his early death in 1616 Casserio left 86 spectacular anatomical drawings by Fialetti, and also possibly their engravings, but no text. Casserius and the co-author of this work, Adrian van der Spiegel, both studied under Fabricius ab Aquapendente (Fabrici) at the University of Padua. Both worked closely with their teacher for many years, and in 1608 Casserius succeeded Fabrici in Padua's chair of surgery and anatomy, which passed in turn to Spiegel upon Casserius' death in 1616. Spiegel (Spigelius) (1578-1625) wrote an unillustrated treatise on anatomy that remained unpublished during his lifetime; in his will he appointed Daniel Bucretius (ne Rindfleisch) to see the work into print. To illustrate Spiegel's treatise, Bucretius obtained 77 of Fialetti's original 86 anatomical plates from the heirs of Casserius (probably engraved by J. Maurer), and commissioned 20 more by Fialetti and engraved by Valesio to complete the series (the remaining 9 plates left by Casserius were used to illustrate Spiegel's De Formato Foetu [1626]), which are part of this work. In the complete series, the largest number of plates, forty-three - and these perhaps the most memorable - are to be found in Liber IV, on the muscles. There are also interesting illustrations on the genito-urinary system in Liber VIII and on the brain in Liber X-one of these, showing the arterial circle at the brain, predates the Willis-Wren illustration [from Willis's Cerebri Anatome (1664)]. Except for those few plates which were derived from Vesalius, the anatomists had reconsidered ways of presenting human anatomy. In doing so they produced the first original series of illustrations of the anatomy of the human body since Vesalius. *Ref: Roberts & Tomlinson: The Fabric of the Body, pp. 262-63; see also pp. 259-61; Cazort, Kornell, Roberts: The Ingenious Machine of Nature: Four Centuries of Art and Anatomy (1996) pp. 167-68; Choulant-Frank 225; Garrison-Morton 381; Heirs of Hippocrates 414; NLM/Krivatsy 2202; 11297 (citing Casserio's and Spiegel's works separately); Sappol, Dream Anatomy pp. 110-111, 113; Waller 9121 and 1812.Artists and Engravers: Authors: Adriaan van den Spiegel, name sometimes written as Adrianus Spigelius (1578-1625) was a Flemish anatomist who was born in Brussels. For much of his career he practiced medicine in Padua, and is considered one of the great physicians associated with that city. He became professor of Anatomy in 1615, succeeding J. Casserius. At Padua he studied anatomy under Girolamo Fabrizio (1537-1619) and Julius Casserius (Giulio Casseri: 1552?1616). His best written work on anatomy is De humani corporis fabrica l

      Lisbon, Na Officina de Domingos Lopes Rosa, 1645. - 4°, recent antique sheep, spine gilt with raised bands in six compartments, crimson leather lettering-piece, gilt letter, text-block edges rouged Caption title. Four-line woodcut initial. Light browning. In good to very good condition. Old ink foliation. A few old notes, in ink. (6 ll.). *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION. Rare tract from the period of restoration of Portuguese independence, describing the trip from La Rochelle and the ceremonial arrival at the Portuguese court of French Ambassador Louis de Goth, Marquis de Rouillac. Among the details are brief descriptions of the landmarks that the ambassador was taken to visit and an account of his meeting with D. João IV, who seems to have been dripping with diamonds (f. A4r). Some of the speeches are transcribed, and at the end of the volume are two sonnets about the ambassador's presentation to the king and queen.King Louis XIII of France had signed a treaty of alliance with Portugal on June 1, 1641; the beginning of this pamphlet notes that Louis XIV was eager to continue it. The alliance was part of the diplomatic maneuvering involved in the Thirty Years' War, which began as a war between Catholics and Protestants, but widened into a battle between the Bourbons and Habsburgs: hence the French at this time supported rebellions in Catalonia and in Portugal. The Thirty Years' 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 N85.

        Honor del Gran Patriarca San Ignacio de Loyola, fundador de la Compania de Jesus, en que se propone su vida, y la de si Discipulo el Apostol de las Indias S. Francisco Xavier. Con la milagrosa historia del admirable Padre Marcelo Mastrilli

      First edition. Part of Nieremberg´s set of works and biographies usually gathered as the Varones, each part complete in itself, this is the third part volume in the series, and contains the life of the founder of the Order, as well as plenty material on Japan and South America. It is a compendium of the explorations, travels, discoveries, and evolution of the Jesuits, during the period of their most significant expansion. "This work having been published at different periods during the space of almost a century... The interest of the work, excluding some 'jesuitical chaff', is not inferior to its rarity, as it contains accounts of many early voyages to the Indies, not elsewhere to be found" (Sabin). On Japan, it includes the life, missionary work and martyrdom of Father Marcelo Mastrili (1603 - 1637) in Japan on Mount Unzen (outskirts of Nagasaki) under the Tokugawa Shogunate. Mastrili had sailed to Japan with aims of reconverting the "fallen priest" Christovao Ferreira who had renounced his faith. Ferreira (c. 1580 - 1650) was a Portuguese Jesuit missionary, he worked in Japan from 1609 to 1633 and was the head of the Jesuit Order in that country during the religious purges against Christianity in 1633; after being tortured for hours, committed apostasy, subsequently changing his name to Sawano Chuan and registering at a Buddhist temple. Mastrili was arrested shortly after landing - the relation of his travesty towards Japan is also noted-; he was then submitted to torture and beheaded. Mysticism did not elude Mastrili, he reported to having visions of St. Francis Xavier who cured him twice. Furthermore, it contains accounts of missions to Goa, Mindanao and Japan. Subjects include "La celestial vocacion a la mission de la India", "La apostolica misiondel P. Marcelo en la jornada de Mindanao", "La entrada en el Japon... tormentos y muerte gloriosa". Other volumes in the series include the "Ideas de virtud en algunos Claros Varones de la Compañia de Jesus", and the "Firmamento religioso de luzidos Astros. En algunos claros varones de la Compañia de Jesus, cumplense en este tomo, y en el antecedente una centuria entera". Sabin, 55271.

        Shisho wakan gounzu or Shisho wakan koto hennen gounzu [A Chronology of Japanese and Chinese History]

      Woodblock printed. 67; 46; 46 folding leaves. Three vols. Large 8vo (283 x 192 mm.), orig. blue brocade design paper wrappers (slight worming carefully restored), orig. block-printed title label on upper cover of Vol. I (label partly missing), new stitching. [Japan]: ca. 1645. First edition and very rare; this book is based on the Jusen wakan koto hennen gounzu (ca. 1611) by Nichisei (or Nichisho or Enchi, 1554-1614), a priest at the Yohoji Temple in Kyoto, where they printed "a series of important books…between 1600 and 1614" (Chibbett) with movable types. Nichisei supervised the temple's printing program and also wrote and edited most of the works himself. Chronology was used in this work to legitimize the ruling families and dynasties and to provide a historical context and memory. Yoshida (1598-1672), a member of a prominent family of physicians and engineers, is most famous for his Jinko-ki (1st ed.: 1627 and many later eds.), "the first great work on arithmetic to appear in Japan."-Smith, History of Mathematics, Vol. I, p. 437. It explains operations on the soroban (abacus), including square and cube root. It has some interesting applications and gives 3.16 for the value of pi. In one of his later editions Yoshida appended a number of advanced problems to be solved by competitors. This procedure of issuing problems started among the Japanese and was kept up until 1813 and helped to stimulate mathematical activity. Yoshida's mathematical skills and knowledge of Chinese made him uniquely prepared to compile the present chronological work. The first volume begins with a genealogical table of the emperors of Japan, beginning with Jimmu in the 7th century B.C. through the 110th (misnumbered 111), Go-Komyo (reigned 1643-54). It bears the stamp of Yoshida. This is followed by three leaves describing the gods from which Jimmu descended. Following this are biographical sketches of each Japanese emperor up through Gomizunoo. Then there are tables listing the gods and emperors of both Japan (on top of the page) and China (on the lower half). The final section of Vol. I and the second and third volumes provide a detailed account of the events from the beginnings of both Japanese and Chinese history up to 1645 in parallel texts. Very nice set from the library of Donald and Mary Hyde (their sale, Christie's NYC, 7 October 1988, lot 94). Preserved in a box. ❧ Cajori, A History of Mathematics, pp. 78-79.

According to Willems, the 1662 printing is much more common, however, “There is an earlier edition of this work, no less attractive [than the 1662], it seems to be printed by G. van der Marse (not Elzevier).” Willems also notes that Elzevier printed the complete set of Bacon works that his book comes from in 1662 (Willems 1157, 6*), but that edition was taken from this 1645 printing!

Contemporary gilt-stamped vellum, seven raised bands, re-backed with gilt-stamped vellum spine, new end-papers, edges with contemporary gauffering for original patron. Binding tight. A FINE & BEAUTIFUL COPY. [More details on request]. FIRST EDITION. FEATURING 117 EXQUISITE COPPERPLATE ENGRAVINGS OF HUMAN ANATOMY. "This edition of Spigelius' work constitutes the most complete collection of original impressions of the eighty-seven plates from Casserius' legacy and the twenty added to them by Bucretius...Casserius' plates mark a new epoch in the history of anatomic representation, owing to the correctness of their anatomic drawing, their tasteful arrangement, and the beauty of their technical execution" (Choulant, et al. 225-6). Spieghel (Spigelius) was a Flemish botanist, anatomist, and practicing surgeon who studied under Girolamo Fabrici in Padua and succeeded Giulio Cassero (Casserius) as the chair of anatomy at that university. He published only two works during his lifetime--the Isagoge, concerning tapeworms, and febris semitertiana, on malaria. However, he left behind some important manuscripts, including his most famous anatomical work, De humani corporis fabrica (DSB, Vol. XII, 577). The Opera contains all 106 of these plates, plus a tenth one showing the hymen. It also contains 10 more plates not from the Casserius series: four from Casparo Aselli's De lactibus et lacteis venis, one from William Harvey's De motu cordis et sanguinus, three from Johannes Walaeus' De motu chyli, and two from Spigelius' De lumbrico lato, along with the full text of each additional treatise.

        Religio Medici A True and Full Coppy of that which was most imperfectly and surreptitiously printed before under the Name of ^Religio Medici^

      Andrew Crooke, [London] 1645 - 1645 [third authorised edition]. Small octavo, with the integral initial blank and the engraved title page by William Marshall. Early full calf, asymmetrically panelled with double fillets in blind, expertly recased with new endpapers; the early monogram 'WA' in ink on the front board and recto of the integral initial blank, the verso of which also bears the early ownership signature of Thomas Ingram; a few leaves slightly cropped (affecting only the catchwords); mild traces of worming to the covers; a few passages highlighted with early ink manicules in the margins; trifling signs of use and age; an excellent copy in a custom-made clamshell box (with the bookplate of George Frederick Birks). For what it's worth, we quote from an obituary in the ^Sydney Morning Herald^, 7 May 1948: 'By the death in Sydney of Mr. George Frederick Birks, aged 82, Australia has lost one of the last intimate links with the ill-fated communist settlement founded by William Lane in Paraguay 55 years ago. Fred Birks, a member of one of Adelaide's best-known pioneering families, was a member of the second party which migrated to Paraguay in 1893'. This third authorised edition was published in the same year as the second. The engraved title is unchanged, but the letterpress has been reset, with minor emendations to the text. Keynes 5.

        The City Alarum, or the weeke of our miscarriages, which have hitherto obstructed our proceedings, and will now retard them, if not speedily removed. Whereunto is annexed a treatise of the excise.

      London printed for Joshua Kirton 1645 - 4to, (2) + 34pp, title printed within an ornamental border and with printer's woodcut device, most leaves lightly dampstained, but a good, crisp, copy in old calf-backed marbled boards, spine lettered in gilt but nonetheless worn and chipped. First edition. Wing C.4346. Kress 677. Goldsmiths 890. Massie 623 (but another issue). Thomason I, 384. The 'Treatise of Excise> comprises only pp.28-34 but is nonetheless an interesting critical review of both 'ordinary' and 'extraordinary' taxation. Perhaps of most interest, however, is the author's presentation of the debate surrounding tax collection itself. He looks at questions of fraud and abuse, tax avoidance and tax embezzlement by private tax collectors. But he is nothing if not a pragmatist: 'Because these taxes are subject to infinite fraud and cozenage, whereby the subjects elude their payment. These deceits will be most diligently enquired into by private farmers, as reaping so much the more profit, by how much the more carefull they are to detect and avert those frauds. For men are usualy more solicitous about their private wealth, than for the common-wealth'. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Renuncia que hizo la Religion de nuestro Padre S. Francisco de todas las Doctrinas y Conversiones

      The document begins by stating the historical importance of the Order in the Evangelization of the Indians of America, claiming recognition as the spiritual pioneers in Guatemala, Florida and the Philippines, and stressing that it was their Order that first came to American shores under the command and blessing of the Spanish Crown. Then explains how due to certain Papal decrees, the General of the Franciscan Order renounces -for himself and the Franciscan Order- to their rights and properties in New Mexico, Yucatan, Zacatecas, Mexico and the Philippines, and all their work in the "Spiritual vineyards" there, in view of those apostolic briefs which had been obtained "by sinister means" for their disturbance and annoyance. He then requests the Pope to hand that property to anyone who can serve him better. The document ends with a petition to the King to make ships available to return the Franciscans to Spain, or, should they prefer it, to take them to the Philippines or Japan to continue their work. La carta comienza describiendo la importancia histórica de la Orden en la evangelización de los Indios de América, pidiendo reconocimiento como los pioneros espirituales en Guatemala, Florida y las Filipinas. Enfatiza y recuerda en que fue esta Orden la que primero llegó a las costas americanas con la aprobación de los monarcas españoles. Luego explica cómo, debido a ciertos Decretos Papales, el General de la Orden Franciscana renuncia para sí mismo y para la Orden a los derechos y propiedades en Nuevo México, Yucatán, Zacatecas, México y las Filipinas y a todo su trabajo en los "viñedos espirituales" en la región, acusando a las bulas de haber sido obtenidas por medios siniestros. Demostrando el deber de obediencia hacia el Pontífice y una humildad sin límites, le pide que entregue su propiedad a quién pueda servirle mejor. Termina pidiendo a Rey de España la disposición de navíos para el retorno de los Franciscanos a España o a las Filipinas o Japón para continuar su labor Apostólica. Medio marroquín reciente. Papel fresco y limpio, excelente ejemplar. Medina, VI, 6807 could only trace a copy from Leclerc´s catalogue. Sabin, 69641.

      Asher 263 and pp. 197-198; Borba de Moraes, p. 33; Knuttel 6477; Sabin 1351. First edition of a pamphlet criticizing the conduct of the Dutch West India Company (WIC) in Brazil, in the form of conversations between five men on Dam square in Amsterdam. It's a vehement attack on the WIC and the Dutch government concerning their strife with Portugal in Brazil. Since 1645 the Portuguese had violently resisted Dutch rule in Brazil, which depleted the treasury of the WIC. This, exacerbated by internal corruption, nearly bankrupted the WIC. The Dutch government's debate whether to financially support the WIC or not, led to many pamphlets by opponents and supporters of the government's plans. The conversation is held between two Dutchmen, a Portuguese, an Englishman and a director of the WIC. The pamphlet argues that Portugal must protect itself against Dutch privateers and that the Netherlands should not try to retake Brazil and Angola. It also urges peace, and claims the Portuguese are making efforts in the peace negotiations in contrast to the "monster" WIC.Slightly browned, with a few small spots, otherwise very good.

        Two ordinances of the Lords and Commons assembled in Parliament: for the speedie demolishing of all organs, images, and all manner of superstitious monuments in all Cathedrall, Parish-Churches and Chappels thorowout the Kingdome of England and Dominion of Wales: the better to accomplish the blessed Reformation so happily begun, and to remove all offences and things illegall in the worship of God.

      London, John Wright. 1645. 4to., 8pp., title printed within border of type ornaments, generally a very good large copy with good margins, well bound in late 19th century red quarter morocco over marbled boards, spine gilt lettered, by Palmer & Howe of Manchester.> First edition. These were draconian Ordinances inspired by the enthusiastic Puritan elements in Parliament who regarded 'organs, images, and all manner of superstitious monuments' as Satanic symbols of Roman Catholicism. The first Ordinance of 28 August 1643 was an Ordinance 'for the utter demolishing, removing, and taking away of all monuments of superstition or idolatry'. The second, dated 9 May 1644, was an Ordinance 'for the further demolishing of monuments of idolatry and superstition'. They were licences to wreak havoc in English parish churches and, as a consequence, organs, stone altars, 'tapers, candlesticks and basons', crucifixes and crosses, 'images and pictures of any one or more persons of the Trinity, as of the Virgin Mary, and all other images and pictures of saints', were all to be defaced or removed.

      Hardcover. Small 12mo. Two books bound together. Full contemporary vellum. 1.) J-C. Scoti, Monarchia solipsorum. Second Edition. pp. 158, [4]. First printed in Venice, 1645. This second edition was printed by Elzevier. Pages are generally clean. A bibliographical note (listing several references) and an old ownership inscription - "ex bibliotheca Kripperdorfia" - are written in old hand on the front blank. The Monarchia solipsorum is bitter satire written against the Jesuits which, in its day, caused quite a sensation. The author describes a secret society of "Solipsen" (those who wish to govern entirely) understood to mean the Jesuits. The supposed laws, secret instructions and clandestine operations of the organization are discussed. The author's name is given as Lucius Cornelius Europaeus which is a pseudonym. Authorship is usually attributed to an ex-Jesuit named Jules Clement Scoti. Some, however, believe Melchior Inchofer (who's name appeared on a later edition) is the true author. The book also contains a dedication to the Greek scholar Leo Allatius by Timotheus Cursantius.

        Amsterdams Dam-praetje, van wat outs en wat nieuws en wat vreemts.Amsterdam, Jan van Soest, 1649. 4to. With woodcut illustration on title-page, repeated as tailpiece. Modern half sheepskin parchment.

      - Asher 263 and pp. 197-198; Borba de Moraes, p. 33; Knuttel 6477; Sabin 1351. First edition of a pamphlet criticizing the conduct of the Dutch West India Company (WIC) in Brazil, in the form of conversations between five men on Dam square in Amsterdam. It's a vehement attack on the WIC and the Dutch government concerning their strife with Portugal in Brazil. Since 1645 the Portuguese had violently resisted Dutch rule in Brazil, which depleted the treasury of the WIC. This, exacerbated by internal corruption, nearly bankrupted the WIC. The Dutch government's debate whether to financially support the WIC or not, led to many pamphlets by opponents and supporters of the government's plans. The conversation is held between two Dutchmen, a Portuguese, an Englishman and a director of the WIC. The pamphlet argues that Portugal must protect itself against Dutch privateers and that the Netherlands should not try to retake Brazil and Angola. It also urges peace, and claims the Portuguese are making efforts in the peace negotiations in contrast to the "monster" WIC.Slightly browned, with a few small spots, otherwise very good. Binding in very good condition as well. [Attributes: First Edition]

Small folio (28.5 x 19 cm). With engraved frontispiece and 6 large engraved folding plates by Romeyn de Hooghe (plate size ca. 23 x 35 cm). Contemporary vellum.

      - Hollstein IX, p. 120, 103-108 (lacking frontispiece); Landwehr, De Hooghe book illustrator 38; STCN (7 copies). Rare first edition, with fine emblematic plates, illustrating the injustice and cruelty of the war waged by Louis XIV of France against the free and independent Dutch Republic. Romeyn de Hooghe (1645-1708) was unquestionably the most gifted and the most prolific Dutch book illustrator of the second half of the 17th century. His work displays the political grandeur and disasters of war in the Dutch Republic, including the disastrous year 1672, depicted dramatically and with great splendour. The large plates are richly designed and full of intricate emblems and allegories, fully explained in the accompanying text; an emblematic poem is added to each plate. With manuscript annotation in ink on pastedown. Slightly browned throughout with some thumbed margins, edges of frontispiece slightly frayed, otherwise in very good condition.

        Journael, ofte dach-register vande Voyagie, ... Naer de Oost-Indien, in den Iaren 1601 1602 ende 1603. Vervattende de vermaerde zee-slagh, met zijn 5 schepen gedaen voor Bantam..

      Amsterdam: Jan Jansz, 1645. Waterstains in margins but in good condition.. Oblong folio, 28 pp.;, bound in full dark-brown oasis. First edition of one of the first Dutch voyages across the Indian Ocean, published as one of the pieces that make up Commelin's voyage collection Begin ende Voortgangh.Harmensz was in joint command of the third major voyage by the Dutch to the East-Indies, in 1601-1603, the so-called Moluccan Fleet which set out to establish a new Dutch presence in the East Indies. The five ships reached Bantam, Java, at the end of 1601 where they were confronted by a substantial Portuguese fleet of thirty ships under the command of Andrea Fortade de Mendoça. Harmensz's conquest of the Portuguese fleet marked a turning point in the history of the region, bringing to a close the domination of the Portuguese and Spanish in the Spice Trade to Europe.Of special interest to us today is that one of the five ships of Harmensz's fleet was the Duyfken, then under the command of Willem Cornelisz Schouten. This was her first voyage; returning to Europe in 1603, she was quickly turned round and came back to the East Indies in the fleet of van der Hagen with Willem Janszoon as skipper. On her second voyage she was sent separately to the southeast, and subsequently reached Cape York Peninsula and charted the Australian coastline.The mention of the Duyfken in Harmensz's text is one of remarkably few printed references to the ship.

        Relation de l'expedition de Carthagene, faite par les François en M.DC.XCVII.Amsterdam, heirs of Anthony Schelte [= Hendrik Schelte], 1698. 12mo. With 2 very large folding maps with elaborately decorated cartouches, engraved by Antoine Le Paultre (plate size ca. 37 x 52 and 37 x 75 cm). 18th-century(?) sprinkled calf, gold-tooled spine.

      Alden & Landis 698/169; Palau 230094; Sabin 63700; for Schelte and Wolfgang: Van Eeghen IV, pp. 92-95 & 182-185. First edition, in the original French, of an adventurous account of the French capture and looting of Spanish Cartagena in Colombia, the richest city in the Caribbean, by the great privateer Jean Bernard Louis de Saint-Jean, Baron de Pointis (1645-1707). Pointis sailed from Brest on 9 January 1697 with a fleet of 10 ships, joined in Hispanola by Jean-Baptiste du Casse, governor of Tortuga, who led 600 buccaneers. They reached Cartagena on 12 April, landed three miles from the city and demanded its surrender. The Spanish refused and drove back several French attacks, but finally the city capitulated on condition that the buccaneers should not enter. Pointis and his own men plundered the city and set sail for France, abandoning the buccaneers. Cheated out of their share, they attacked Cartagena themselves, against Du Casse's orders, pillaging and burning the city for three days and raping and murdering many residents. The English fleets pursued Pointis, but captured only a ship full of yellow fever victims, whose contagious infection quickly decimated the English and Dutch fleets.The folding plan of Cartagena and vicinity has an occasional small tear, cut or chip restored or repaired, barely affecting the topographic image, and the book and binding are otherwise in very good condition. First edition of Baron de Pointis's own account of his adventures as a privateer, with 2 beautiful, large maps, of the Caribbean and of Cartagena.

The Dutch tax collector Jacob de Wilde (1645-1721) began the collection, containing gems, coins, scientific instruments and statues. "This attractive account of a Dutch cabinet of the late seventeenth century is as much a eulogy of Maria de Wilde's gifts as an engraver as of her father's museum" (Grinke). The 60 plates by Maria de Wilde (1682-1729) show the ancient Egyptian, Greek and Roman statues in the museum. The 6 text leaves include a brief introduction and several laudatory poems directed at Maria de Wilde and her engravings. The collection drew some important visitors, including the Russian tsar Peter the Great in 1697, whose visit is illustrated on the engraved folding plate. After De Wilde's death, the tsar acquired part of the collection for his "Kunstkamera", the first museum in Russia, which was completed in 1727.Some minor thumbing and some occasional small spots, not affecting the illustrations, otherwise in very good condition.

The author of this book, William Prynne, was a renown English lawyer, author, polemicist, and political figure throughout the first half of the 17th century.. A prominent Puritan opponent of the church policy of the Archbishop of Canterbury, William Laud, Prynne was able to have the satisfaction of overseeing his trial, which was to end in Laud's execution. As such, he collected and arranged evidence to prove the charges against Laud, bore testimony himself in support of many of them, hunted up witnesses against the archbishop, and assisted the counsel for the prosecution in every way. At the time some thought he was clearly tampering with the witnesses. Prynne had the duty of searching Laud's room in the Tower for papers. He published a redacted edition of Laud's diary and this "Hidden Workes of Darkenes Brought to Publike Light" intended to serve as an introduction to the Archbishop's trial.Previous owner's name at lower margin of Buckle's bookplate. Frontispiece and title page slightly darkened and age-toned along edges. Pages age-toned along margin. Minor and sporadic foxing / offsetting throughout.

He was a prominent Puritan opponent of the church policy of the Archbishop of Canterbury, William Laud. Although his views on church polity were presbyterian, he became known in the 1640s as an Erastian, arguing for overall state control of religious matters.
