Heydon (John)
Printed by M. Symmons, 1647. slightly browned or soiled in places, a few headlines tocuhed by the binder's knife, one cropped entirely, pp. [xlvi], 39, 38-183, [1], 12mo, late 19th-century speckled calf by Eedy, Tavistock Square, double gilt fillets on sides, spine gilt in compartments, lettered direct, early signature on second title of Cornelius Cayley, and on the verso of the first title an inscription concerning the bargain made at London Bridge by a servant called Eliz, book-label of Henry Davies, good. The title-page, as partially transcribed above, is followed by another, beginning: The Discovery of the wonderfull preservation of his Excellencie Sir Thomas Fairfax . This corresponds to Wing H1679, ESTC R26440, the sections bound in a different order from the collation in the latter. ESTC records only 3 copies of this issue (BL, Cambridge; Minnesota) and 5 of The Discovery. In the Epistle Dedicatory here (i.e. The Discovery), Heydon heaps praise upon Fairfax and his armies, especially the London component. The effusion was occasioned by Fairfax's remarkable survival, when the royal magazine at Torrington was blown up. 'Writing afterwards to his father, [Fairfax] expressed gratitude for "God's great mercy to me and some others that stood where great webs of lead fell thickest, yet, praised be God, no man hurt" - apart from the 200 royalist prisoners who were killed by the explosion. Fairfax's last task was to invest Oxford . Aubrey later hailed him as the saviour of the Bodleian for putting a strong guard around the library to stop the thieving and vandalism of books t … [Click Below for Full Description]

Course of the danube, ,. Danubius, Fluvius Europae Maximus, a Fontibus ad Ostia. Cum omnibus Fluminib, ab utroque latere, in llum fluentibus Antique map chart Danubius Fluvius Europae Maximus a Fontibus ad Ostia Willem Blaeu Subject: Southeastern Europe Date: 1647 Size of the leaf: 49x107 cm.. This map depicts the course of the river Danube and the surrounding countries from its headwaters in the Black Forest of southern Germany to its mouth on the Black Sea. The river flows through a series of broad and fertile valleys with several of eastern Europe's most important cities on its banks. This is one of Blaeu's largest atlas maps, printed on two joined sheets. The extravagant title cartouche is flanked by the Holy Roman Emperor and Europa on one side and the Ottoman Sultan and Asia on the other, representing the long struggle between the two powers for control of the region. The scale of miles is attended by an assortment of muscular river gods and putti representing the mighty river and its tributaries. A nice impression with beautiful old color. There are some restorations on left centerfold with a little loss, some tears on margins..

Schottelius, Justus Georg.
Wolfenbüttel, Johann Bißmarck für Michael Cubach in Lüneburg, 1647.. . Erste Ausgabe der Sammlung von Schottelius' Dichtungen in Poesie und Prosa. "Auf dem Frontispiz stellt Schottel in programmatischer Weise seine Lyriksammlung vor: Der kunstvoll angelegte Lustgarten wird von einer Mauer von der unkultivierten, unfruchtbaren Natur abgegrenzt. Einzig die Palme (das Sinnbild der Fruchtbringenden Gesellschaft; W. B.) ist so beschaffen, daß sie, allen zu Nutzen, im Wüstensand gedeiht und über die Mauer hinweg den Pflanzen Schatten spendet. Ein 'Lusthäuslein' wird von der Göttin Ceres mit dem Füllhorn bekrönt. Im Vordergrund stehen fünf Gewächse mit sinnvollen Inschriften, ganz nach der Manier der Fruchtbringer. Schottel nimmt sich damit das Privileg heraus, das in der FG nur Fürst Ludwig als dem Oberhaupt zusteht. Seine fünf Pflanzen oder Gewächse widmet er - ohne Rücksicht auf botanische Verbindungen zu anderen Gesellschaftsmitgliedern - den ihm anbefohlenen fünf Kindern Herzog Augusts: für Sibylle Ursula das Vergißmeinnicht, für Anton Ulrich (den späteren Siegprangenden, FG 716) das Röslein, für Clara Augusta den Rosmarin, für Ferdinand Albrecht (den späteren Wunderlichen, FG 842) den Ehrenpreis, für Maria Elisabeth endlich den Augentrost. Merkwürdigerweise wird der älteste Sohn, Rudolf August (später FG 754), nicht berücksichtigt. Die Erklärung des Gewächses und des 'Worts' erfolgt jeweils am Ende der den fünf Kindern einzeln gewidmeten Büchern" (Bircher).

[Quran]. Ryer, Andre du.
Paris, Antoine de Sommaville, 1647.. 4to. (10), 648 [but: 598], (4) pp. Contemp. full French speckled calf with gilt tooling and title label on spine, dentelles on inner covers.. Rare first edition of "the oldest complete translation of the Qur'an into a European vernacular" (Encylopedia of the Qur'an), in a handsome copy. Du Ryer's work served as the basis for further translations of the Qur'an into English, German, Dutch, and Russian, and was instrumental in introducing Europeans to the tenets of the Muslim faith. Ryer was a celebrated linguist and had lived in Egypt and Turkey, where he studied classical Arabic. His introduction briefly summarizes the Muslim religion for Christian readers, noting customs such as Ramadan, circumcision, the practice of having up to four wives, the significance of Mecca and Medina, Sufi brotherhoods and wandering ascetics, and finally the Islamic recognition of Jesus as a prophet but not the son of God. A prayer printed in Arabic in included on the verso of leaf e2. - "Du Ryer's translation of the Qur'an [...] became an unparalleled literary success [...] The easy availability of the Qur'an accompanied a newfound interest in the Orient; additionally, du Ryer's translation lacked the polemical tone of previous editions, an orientation which arose mainly in ecclesiastical contexts. Du Ryer used Islamic commentaries such as al-Bayawi'sAnwar al-tanzil, the Tafsir al-Jalalayan by al-Mahalli (d. 864/1459) and al-Suyu i (d. 911/1505), or an excerpt from al-Razi's (d. 606/1210) great commentary made by l-Raghi l-Tunisi (d. 715/1315) entitled al-Tan … [Click Below for Full Description]

PAPIN, Denis.
First edition, very rare and a fine copy, of one of the most important documents in the early history of the air-pump, and the the primary source (besides letters published half a century later in Christiaan Huygens' <i>Oeuvres</i>) for information on Huygens' improvements on Boyles' first air-pump. "Among further improvements in the air-pump during the latter part of the seventeenth century were the two way tap, introduced by Papin; and the double cylindered pump, probably introduced by Papin and perfected by Hauksbee, through whom the air-pump assumed what long remained its standard form" (Wolf, <i>A History of Science, Technology, and Philosophy</i>, Vol. I, p. 107).<br/><br/> Papin (1647-1712?) arrived in Paris in 1670 intending to practise medicine, but soon became disillusioned and, having developed a taste and talent for mathematics and machinery, sought the patronage of the wife of the minister Colbert. She arranged for him to lodge in the Louvre and to assist Huygens, who had been invited to develop his many scientific interests under French protection. "At the time that Papin joined him in 1673, Huygens was investigating the force of gunpowder as a means of creating a vacuum under a piston in order to drive machinery, in particular to operate a pump to raise water from the Seine to the palace of Versailles. Papin, who was continuing the investigations into the preservation of foodstuffs under vacuum that he had begun at university, was led to consider the vacuum as a possible motive force. During this period Leibniz, then in Paris, became a regular visitor to Huyg … [Click Below for Full Description]

Philippe Chifflet; Thomas a Kempis Saint
Antwerp: Ex officina Plantiniana Balthasaris Moreti, 1647. 12mo. [24], 439, [14] pp, engraved title. Handsomely bound by Magnin in fine brown Moroccan, gilt, raised bands, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. Light rubbing. Inscription on first blank. Half title and engraved title soiled, occasional spotting. The Imitation of Christ is a Christian devotional book. It is a handbook for spiritual life arising from the Devotio Moderna movement. Aside from the Bible, no religious work has been widely read or translated more than the Imitation of Christ. The text is divided into four books, which provide detailed spiritual instructions: "Helpful Counsels of the Spiritual Life", "Directives for the Interior Life", "On Interior Consolation" and "On the Blessed Sacrament". The approach taken in the Imitation is characterized by its emphasis on the interior life and withdrawal from the world, as opposed to an active imitation of Christ by other friars. The book places a high level of emphasis on the devotion to the Eucharist as key element of spiritual life. Very Good. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

PUGET DE LA SERRE Jean.
1647 - Petit in-4 [145 x 192 mm], cartonnage moderne, dos de vélin, titre doré, [10] feuillets non chiffrés, 269 pages, 7 planches gravées sur cuivre par Nikolaus VAN DER HORST d'après Corneille GALLE. (Exemplaire court de marges ; la légende est rognée en pied de deux planches. Une lacune marginale avec petit manque de texte.) Natif de Toulouse, Pierre PUGET DE LA SERRE (1593-1665) suivit Marie de Médicis dans son exil à Bruxelles, puis à Londres où elle trouva refuge auprès du roi son gendre et de sa fille Henriette-Marie : c'est à cette dernière que le toulousain dédie ce Miroir destiné à inculquer aux souverains le souvenir constant de la mort et de la vanité de toutes choses ici-bas. L'ouvrage parut à Bruxelles en 1632 chez Godefroy Schoevaerts et connut de nombreuses réimpressions (la nôtre comprend encore l'achevé d'imprimer du 14 août 1632), ainsi qu'une traduction anglaise en 1639 (The Miror which flatters not, London). L'illustration se compose de trois gravures aux feuillets liminaires, soit le titre-frontispice et deux portraits, celui de Charles Ier d'Angleterre et celui de Henriette-Marie, ainsi que quatre planches narratives en tête de chaque chapitre. L'invention en est due au graveur anversois Corneille GALLE dit le vieux (1576-1650), fils de Philippe Galle, reconnu comme le plus talentueux de sa lignée, et la gravure à Nikolaus VAN DER HORST. Le Miroir qui ne flate point est le fruit d'une nouvelle collaboration entre l'auteur, l'illustrateur et le graveur, qui avaient travaillé ensemble une première fois aux Douces pensées de la mort (Bruxelles 1627), pui … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ward came to New England in 1634 and was appointed minister at Agawam, now Ipswich, Massachusetts. Soon after, he compiled the first code of laws established in New England, which was adopted but never printed in book form, as John Cotton's code was mistaken for Ward's. This was his next literary effort, containing many New England references. The work was extremely popular, going through five editions in the first year of its publication. Scarce. SABIN 101323.

BLAEU, W
Amsterdam, 1647. No Binding. Fine. 14 ¾ x 19 ½ inches. Fine original color; fine condition. A pristine example of Blaeu's splendid map of this vital area of South America that contains the mouths of two great rivers-the Amazon and the Orinoco. The map extends from the Gulf of Paria in Venezuela in the north and includes in this area the islands of Trinidad, Tobago, Grenada and Margarita. Its southern limit is Sao Luis in northeastern Brazil, and it encompasses the entire mouth of the Amazon. Also on the map are Guyana, Suriname and French Guiana, and it also depicts the Guiana Highlands. A prominent feature on the map is the legendary Lake Parime, the object of searches by many explorers, not least among them Sir Walter Raleigh and Alexander von Humboldt. It was believed that on its shores would be found the city of Manoa, otherwise known as El Dorado.
