Crashaw, Richard
London: Printed for Humphrey Moseley. 1648. Hardcover. Good. "The Second edition wherein are added divers pieces not before extant," 1648. 12mo, 17th century plain dark brown calf, pp. (10) 1-113 (5) with unpaginated Table at rear of Steps to the Temple; and including frontispiece, separate title page for The Delights of the Muses, pp. (2), 71 (3) including last blanks, but apparently lacking the Table for The Delights of the Muses (F11/12). Good copy, front board neatly reattached, lacks pastedown paper, but seems to have lacked it early on as there is the name 'John Martin' in an early hand and small engraved bookplate (somewhat later); first blank has 'marey the king' in an old hand, and the verso of the frontispiece has 'Mary Cottons booke' in a contemporary hand; the rear blanks have some doodles and phrases, probably by Mary Cotton, that are possibly snatches of thoughts or lyrics. Wing C 6837 and C 6831; no. 233 in the Grolier Club Bibliography 'Wither to Prior' with the following collation: 'A, six leaves, B-F, in twelves; A-C, in twelves...In this edition twenty-four pieces are added to the first part, and nineteen to the second.' -- some scratches to boards...we have done no attempts at restoration (and many of our colleagues will mutter 'Thank God!').

[DUYFKEN] SPILBERGEN, Joris van.
Amsterdam: Joost Hartgers, 1648. Small quarto, woodcut on title and double-page engraved plate with six vignette illustrations; contemporary half vellum. Very rare: this Amsterdam printing of two Dutch East Indies Company voyage accounts includes one of remarkably few surviving printed records of Willem Jansz and the Duyfken.This is the fifth edition of this account of Joris van Spilbergen's voyage, first published in 1604. This is, however, the first edition to contain the important supplementary account of the Van der Hagen voyage (see below), which was also the first stage of the Duyfken voyage. It is the only separately published edition of any account of the Van der Hagen voyage - and thus the only separately published record of the voyage that would culminate in the first authenticated sighting of the coast of Australia.The first part of the book deals with Joris van Spilbergen's voyage to Sri Lanka, which was sent out by a group of Zealand merchants in 1601 and successfully established the first trading link between Sri Lanka and the Netherlands. His fleet of three ships visited the Cape of Good Hope and then sailed directly to Sri Lanka, where Spilbergen negotiated with the king of Kandy, promising military assistance against the Portuguese. The narrative of the voyage includes a record of daily events and considerable material on life and customs in Sri Lanka. Earlier editions of Spilbergen's account appeared in Delft in 1604 (several issues) and 1605, and in Amsterdam in 1617. The text also appeared in several of the voyage anthologies that the Dutch made a habit … [Click Below for Full Description]

GROENVELT, Joannes (John GREENFIELD or GROENVELD).
Blake, p. 187; ESTC T64914; for the author: Cook, "Groenevelt, Joannes (bap. 1648, d. 1715/16)", in: ODNB (online ed.). First English edition of a treatise on the medicinal use of Spanish Fly (Lytta vesicatoria, traditionally classified in the family Canthardiae). Joannes Groenevelt (1648-1715/16)) was a Dutch-born physician, practising in London from 1675 on. Greenfield strongly advocated the use of Spanish fly, primarily for the treatment of gout and bladder and kidney diseases. One of his patients accused him of malpractice and Groenvelt was fined and sent to Newgate prison, but obtained permanent freedom through William III's general pardon in 1691. He published the present treatise on the use of Spanish fly as a vindication of his methods. It includes a laudatory poem by Bernard Mandeville, detailed descriptions of the various medicinal uses of Spanish fly, followed by medical observations and several recipes. In good condition, waterstain in lower margin, some browning. Boards slightly browned.

CALADO, Fr. Manoel.
Lisbon, Impressor Paulo Craesbeeck, 1648.. First Edition. Folio (27.5 x 18.5 cm.), modern vellum over boards, spine gilt, all edges gilt. Text in 2 columns. Light dampstains at center and light browning. In fine condition. (8 ll.), 356 pp. *** FIRST EDITION, first issue, of this account of the restoration of Pernambuco and the expulsion of the Dutch from Brazil, described by Borba de Moraes as "one of the best books about the war against the Dutch." Despite having all necessary licenses, it was suppressed almost immediately after publication, perhaps due to the influence of the Jesuits. From 1655 until the late nineteenth century Valeroso Lucideno was on the Index librorum prohibitorum. (This copy has a contemporary note on the title-page regarding the 1655 prohibition.) After receiving a new sales license in 1668, Valeroso Lucideno was reissued by Domingos Carneiro with 2 new preliminary leaves replacing the 8 leaves of the 1648 issue. The remainder of the work is unchanged: Carneiro undoubtedly used the unsold copies from the suppressed 1648 issue. Boxer comments, "Admittedly, Fr. Manuel Calado was no unprejudiced or dispassionate observer. He wrote at white heat, and often with the fighting raging within earshot of him, between September 1645 and July 1646. But his work is all the more vivid and graphic for that, and much of it reads very like the front-line dispatches of a first-rate war correspondent. Apart from his vivid account of the first year of the Pernambuco insurrection … he gives us a fascinating description of the colony in the days of Johan Maurits.… … [Click Below for Full Description]

Crashaw, Richard.
London: Humphrey Moseley, 1648. Note: this is an original rare mid-17th century book of English poetry, not a reprint. STEPS TO THE TEMPLE, SACRED POEMS. WITH THE DELIGHTS OF THE MUSES. By Richard Crashaw, sometimes of Pembroke Hall, and the late Fellow of S. Peters Coll. In Cambridge. The second Edition wherein are added divers pieces not before extant. London: Printed for Humphrey Moseley, and are to be sold at his Shop at the Princes Armes in St. Pauls Church-yard, 1648. This 1648 edition of Crashaw’s poems follows the earlier edition of 1646 from the same publisher but contains many new poems, as well as many of his more familiar poems that have been greatly expanded, such as the two hymns to Saint Teresa. 12mo. [A6, B-F12, A-C12] A2-A4 comprise “The Preface to the Reader” by the author’s friend and editor (the same that appeared in the 1646 edition) whose identity remains unknown. The two parts are separately paginated with their own title pages and Tables of Contents. The first for the chiefly religious poems, and the second for “Other Poems written on severall occasions.” One of his best-known works, Sancta Maria Dolorum, is printed here for the first time (except for stanzas 7 & 8) as The Mother of Sorrowes. A number of the other new poems (chiefly in Latin) were not reprinted until the scholarly editions of the early 20th-century. Modern criticism has firmly established Crashaw as one of the major metaphysical poets and he is the most overtly religious. Born the son of a Puritan minister in 1613, he became a Catholic and was forced to leave England in 1645 and died … [Click Below for Full Description]

Wilkins, John
[iles] F[lesher] for Sa: Gellibrand, London, 1648. FIRST EDITION OF THE FIRST BOOK ON MECHANICS IN ENGLISH. John Wilkins was an English clergyman, natural philosopher, and polymath. Mathematicall Magick is divided into two books, one titled 'Archimedes, because he was the chiefest in discovering of Mechanical powers,' the other was called 'Daedalus, one of the first and most famous amongst the Ancients for his skill in making Automata.' In the first book, Wilkins explains the principles of mechanics as well as traditional mechanical devices such as the lever, wheel, pulley, glock and tackle, wedge, screw, and balance are discussed and illustrated. "The powers acting on them are compared to those acting in the human body" (Wikipedia). Wilkins shows effect of a series of gear transmission as well as "the importance of various speeds and the theoretical possibility to increase speed beyond the speed of the earth at the equator. Finally, siege engines like catapults are compared with the cost and effect of then modern guns" (ibid). In the second book, Wilkins pays special attention to perpetual motion machines and studies "various devices are examined which move independently of human interference like clocks and watches, water mills and wind mills. Wilkins explains devices being driven by the motion of air in a chimney or by pressurized air. Wilkins explains that it should be possible for a man, too, to fly by himself. If a frame were built where the person could sit and if this frame was sufficiently pushed in the air" (ibid). Wilkins was the 14th Bishop of Chester as well as … [Click Below for Full Description]
