WITCHCRAFT). DAVENPORT, JOHN
London: Printed by W. Wilson for R. Clutterbuck, 1646. FIRST EDITION. This is a very scarce collection of confessions and testimony given during the East Anglia Witch Hunt of 1644-47, during which self-appointed "Witchfinder General" Matthew Hopkins tried and hanged approximately 300 people, mostly women--more than had been executed for witchcraft in the previous 100 years. The 14 interviews recorded here contain both confessions of accused witches and testimony of witnesses against them, all taken down between 31 March and 2 May 1646; the Huntingdon witches were executed in May. The proceedings were recorded first-hand by John Davenport, an employee of Justice of the Peace Sir Robert Bernard, one of the magistrates who presided over the trials. It is interesting that at the end of this work, Davenport recommends "Select Cases of Conscience touching Witches and Witchcrafts," the work of Hopkins' most vociferous opponent, John Gaule, vicar of Great Staughton, whose denunciation of Hopkins' dubious methods helped bring the witch-hunts to an end. This is quite a rare work, with ESTC and OCLC finding just five copies in the UK and five in the US. RBH and ABPC list just one other copy at auction, sold at Sotheby's in 1930, and its (brief) description suggests that it may, in fact, be the present one.. 190 x 140 mm. (7 3/8 x 5 1/2"). 2 p.l., 15 pp. FIRST EDITION. Fine hazel brown crushed morocco, gilt, by Riviere & Son (stamp-signed on front turn-in), covers with French fillet border, raised bands, spine compartments delicately gilt with central fleuron and curling cornerpieces … [Click Below for Full Description]

Thomas Browne
Pseudodoxia Epidemica by Thomas Browne, 1646 London, Printed by T.H. for Edward Dod. The Volume is in Excellent Condition, bound in full blind-ruled English calf, contemporary to the time of publication, with the spine divided into six compartments by five raised bands, with the board edges gilt and leaf edges red speckled. Externally the boards are lightly scuffed in general, with the board corners bumped a bit and with wera at the hinges, which hold well regardless, with no chipping to the spine. Internally the leaves are generally clean and amply margined, ruled throughout, with a tear to the margin of Pp. 261/2, some scattered foxing on occasion and little else in the way of stains or tears Pseudodoxia Epidemica is a work by Thomas Browne challenging and refuting the "vulgar" or common errors and superstitions of his age. This was a valuable source of information which found itself upon the shelves of many homes in seventeenth century England, being in the vanguard of the scientific writing, and it paved the way for much subsequent popular scientific journalism. Its science includes many examples of Browne's 'at-first-hand' empiricism as well as early examples of the formulation of scientific hypothesis. The work includes evidence of Browne's adherence to the Baconian method of empirical observation of nature, and was in the vanguard of work-in-progress scientific journalism during the 17th-century scientific revolution. Throughout its pages frequent examples of Browne's subtle humour can also be found. It first appeared in 1646 and went through five subsequent editions … [Click Below for Full Description]

The first Elsevier edition in full morooco leather. (xxiv), 663, (8 + 1 blank)pp. The Elzeviers printed four editions of De la Sagesse in 1646, 1656, 1659 and 1662 ("Celle de 1646 est incontestablement la plus belle" Willems 147).

VAN ESPEN, Zeger Bernard.
, . . Dekkers, Bibl. Belg. juridica, p. 52, no. 16. Third edition of the collected works of the Belgian canonist Zeger Bernard Van Espen (1646-1728). He was a lucid and clarifying expositor of the discipline of the ancient Church, which led to a certain fame at the end of the 17th century. Because of his involvement with Jansenist and Gallican doctrine Van Espen fled to Maastricht and his Jus ecclesiasticum universum was put on the Index in 1704. After his death all his works would be deemed heretical. Volume one lacking half-title, some occasional spots and slightly rubbed along the extremities, otherwise in very good condition.

Sebastien de Pontault Sieur de BEAULIEU (1612 - 1674)
Rara pianta di Porto Azzurro, originariamente appellata Porto Longone, pubblicata nell'opera "Les glorieuses conquestes de Louis le Grand roy de France et de Navarre". La pianta mostra l'assedio francese del 1646, durante la guerra franco-spagnola: la Francia inviò contro Porto Longone un'armata, al comando del duca di Meilleraye e del conte Du Plessis Praslin; 3000 uomini sbarcarono il 27 settembre nell'isola, e subito dopo la presa di Piombino Porto Longone fu attaccato dalle forze di terra e di mare. Non riuscendo utili i tiri delle artiglierie contro i robusti bastioni della fortezza, i Francesi, mediante lavori di scavo e di mina, riuscirono ad aprire una breccia nelle mura, per la quale mossero all'assalto. Dopo accanita resistenza, il 29 ottobre, gli Spagnoli si arresero. Nel riquadro in basso a destra, la cartina dell'intera isola d'Elba e la costa antistante con la città di Piombino. Incisione su rame, in ottime condizioni. Rare plan of Porto Longone, also known as Porto Azzurro, on the Island of Elba. Published in Les Glorieuses Conquestes de Louis le Grand - one of the most important works in the 17th century. Shows the bay and the surrounding area in great detail, with mountains, rivers, cliffs, and woods. The battle plan shows the forts, camps and tents, and sailing war ships. Two extensive keys explain the camp and the fortress. With a small inset map showing the entire island and the near Italian mainland coast with the city of Piombino. Copper engraving, in very good condition.

Mondine (XVIIIe s.), Henry Guenser et De. L. Secheyron (XXe s.) sur le faux-titre, cachet bleu de l'hospice civil de Toulouse sur le titre. Titre en rouge et noir orné d'une vignette gravée en taille-douce représentant le portrait de Planis Campy à l'âge de 54 ans (1643), texte sur 2 coll., (8) ff., 752 pp. [recte : 746], (1) f. blanc, et 21 vignettes gravées sur bois dans le texte et 8 pages comprenant l'alphabet des symboles alchimiques.

Première et seule édition collective des oeuvres du médecin paracelsiste et alchimiste David de Planis Campy (1589-1644), chirurgien ordinaire du roi Louis XIII. Planis Campy était l'un des plus fervents adeptes de la doctrine de Paracelse. "La médecine hermétique est vraye, dit-il, parce qu'elle est de la création de Dieu et partant ses reigles sont très certaines d'autant que Dieu et la Nature ne font rien en vain". Planis Campy avait apporté tout le soin nécessaire à l'impression de ses oeuvres. Il en avait revu et augmenté le texte de chaque traité. L'édition était prête en 1644 à la mort de l'auteur et ne fut imprimée qu'en août 1645. Elle était partagée avec Denis Moreau au nom duquel on trouve une partie des exemplaires.

A Paris, chez Antoine Robinot, 1646. 2 tomes en 3 volumes in-8. Titre gravé. 6ff. 479pp. (i.e. 505, les pages 37-38 et 41-64 sont numérotées comme des feuillets). + 1f. pp. 479-1263 (i.e. 1261). 3ff. + 4ff. 856pp. 8pp. Plein veau brun, dos à nerfs ornés, double filet doré encadrant les plats (reliures de l'époque). Première édition complète (l'édition de 1643 ne comportant qu'un seul volume) de cette ambitieuse compilation de voyages qui comptait offrir au lecteur un tableau complet, mais succint, de tous les pays du monde entier. On y trouve une brève évocation des continents et du nouveau monde dans le premier volume, mais c'est dans le troisième volume que se trouvent les chapitres les plus développés consacré à l'Afrique, à l'Amérique et à l'Asie. Le second volume, lui, est entièrement consacré aux régions de France. "Je ne crois pas peu obliger le Lecteur, luy mettant tout le Monde dans une main, et retranchant ce qu'il y a d'excessif, ou de superflu dans les autres ouvrages des Cosmographes, pour ne lui donner que ce qui est nécessaire. C'est en Abbrégé du Mercator, d'Ortelius, de Hondius, de Bertius, du Monde que Monsieur d'Avity nous a donné en cinq volumes ( ). Au lieu des cartes qu'on pourroit trouver dans les autres et qui seroient trop confuses estant mises en petit, j'ay fait mettre icy les portraits des principaux Princes de la Terre" (pp.8-9). Le volume contient en effet un beau titre illustré et 7 portraits gravés sur cuivre à pleine page, compris dans la pagination. Ces gravures furent composées par Jean Boulanger (1608-1680), originaire de Troyes en Champa … [Click Below for Full Description]

Iberia forms her head and crown; Denmark her right arm; Italy her left arm with Sicily an orb in her hand; Greece, the Balkans and Russia her skirts; and Bohemia a medallion on a chain around her neck. The map was published in Bünting's 'Itinerarium Sacræ Scriptura', a commentary on the bible written as a travel book, first published 1581. The work also contains a map of the World as a cloverleaf and Asia as Pegasus the winged horse. Although the title and text under the map are in Latin, the text on verso is German.
