Joseph Mede; Richard More (trans.)
Printed at London by J. L. for Phil Stephens, 1650. Collated complete using copac, Historical Texts, catch words and page signatures. (ESTC R1085). Contains very scarce publisher's advertisements to the rear of the work. Contains fold out plate and demonstrative vignettes as called for. The second English edition of the work. First published in Latin as Clavis Apocalyptica in 1627. The first English edition was published in 1643. The second edition is the first edition to contain the additional work 'A Conjecture Concerning Gog and Magog in the Revelation' who, according to the Book of Ezekiel, are the enemies of God's people. Joseph Mede was an English biblical scholar. This work, his magnum opus, Clavis Apocalyptica (The Key of the Revelation) was a hugely influential work on the interpretation of the Book of Revelation. The work predicts the end of the world by 1716, by which time the Jewish population would be miraculously converted to Christianity in preparation for the second coming. The work drew heavily upon Eastern thought, more specifically understanding the Apocalypse through a book of ancient dream interpretation attributed to Achmer. Those who followed Mede's chronology include Isaac Newton and Thomas Goodwin. The English Edition was translated by Richard More. More was the MP for Bishop's Castle, and was a well-known puritan who wrote heavily on puritan themes. In 1643 More translated the first English edition of Clavis Apocalyptica. He died later that year. A fascinating and extremely scarce work. CONDITION Rebound in brown crushed morocco. Externally very sm … [Click Below for Full Description]

Meric Casaubon
London: F. Flesher, 1650. First and only edition, 12mo, pp. [8], 418, [2], 72, [12]; title printed in red and black, recent full calf antique, gilt lettering dirct on spine; a nice copy. The title of the book is penned on the fore-edge of the book, but it is faded. Most of the book deals with the Anglo-Saxon, with a small section on the Hebrew; the parts on Greek and Latin were never published. The final 72pp. consist of William Somner's extensive list of Old German words with Anglo-Saxon equivalents, which he was to develop, with Casaubon's encouragement, into the first Anglo-Saxon dictionary, published in 1659. In this copy there are two notes on the rear flyleaf, one by Philip Morant (1700-1770), the historian of Essex, and the other by his son-in-law Thomas Astle (1735-1803), the antiquary and palaeographer, the latter mentioning Elstob's English-Saxon Homily.

Beautiful allegorical title leaf, surrounded by a cornucopia in the form of a garland, with richly festooned garlands draped over the upper portion of the frame.

, . . Extensive description on request Interesting and important early collection of 11 very rare architectural print series (with a few additional prints from other series bound with them) giving in total 120 engraved and etched plates of churches, other buildings, portals, altars, mantelpieces, ceilings and wall panels, alcoves, pulpits, architectural decorations (including helmets, military insignia, decorated borders, friezes, masks), fountains and grottoes, mainly in Paris and surroundings. The prints are etched and engraved by the best and most famous artists in Paris in the 1650s and 1660s: Jean Le Pautre, Jean Marot ('Le grand Marot'), Pierre Cottart, Jean Boisseau, Antoine Pierretz and Francesco Fanelli. All but Boisseau's were published and printed by the two most famous printers of engravings and etchings: Pierre Mariette II and Jacques van Merle. None of the 11 series is demonstrably later than 1661, though some may be later in the 1660s. The fact that each print series at least generally shows a consistent paper stock and the fact that the endleaves show a watermark contemporary with the latest print series strongly suggests that each series comes from a single impression as published and that they were bound together soon after publication: this is not a collection assembled from separate prints by a collector. It is of the greatest importance for the history of French architecture during the seventeenth century.

DESMOLETS (le Père Pierre-Nicolas).
11 vols. in 12. Reliure plein veau marbré de l'époque, dos à nerfs ornés de caissons à fleurons dorés, pièces de titre et de tomaison en maroquin rouge, filet à froid encadrant les plats, tranches rouges, coupes décorées. Chaque tome, sauf le t. IX, est divisé en deux parties. Dans ces Mémoires, il s'agissait pour Desmolets "de mettre entre les mains de tout le monde les dissertations" détenues par les "savants" et d'accueillir tout ce qui "apporterait quelque recherche utile, quelque expérience nouvelle, quelque point de critique ou d'histoire, appuyé sur de nouvelles preuves (.); des "extraits de livres rare et curieux trop considérables pour que beaucoup de savants" pussent "les acquérir", surtout ceux dont ni Moreri ni Bayle n'avaient parlé".(préface, cité par Sgard, Dict. des journaux., p.247). La principale spécialité de Desmolets demeure la publication de texte du XVIIe siècle: Lettres inédites de Balzac 1650-53, Boileau, Corneille, Leibniz à Arnaud, Malherbe, Racine, St-Evremond à Mme d'Aulnoy, . Relations : La conversion de La Fontaine, Rapports pour Colbert rédigés par Costar et Chapelain sur tous les gens de lettres célèbres en France, Textes divers : Vers inédits de Malherbe et de Chaulieu, Histoire de la Franche-comté par Pellisson, un chapitre ajouté par M. d'Aubignac à sa pratique du Théâtre, L'entretien de M.

Anonimo
1650. Cabreo finemente eseguito su carta francese con filigrana databile alla metà del XVII secolo. Il foglio appareneva ad un "Album Amicorum" venduto in asta a Parigi nel dicembre 2008 e successivamente, purtroppo, diviso in singoli fogli che risultano presenti nel mercato antiquario dallo scorso gennaio. L'album era composto da una miscellanea di incisioni e manoscritti, quasi tutti raffiguranti piante delle fortificazioni delle principali città europee, con particolare attenzione alle città italiane che, a differenza delle altre opere manoscritte, sono accuratamente rifinite con acquarello dai toni verde e rosa. I cabrei risutano tutti della stessa mano, con titolo latino ed iscrizioni e commenti in lingua francese. Una sorta di album di disegno da viaggio eseguito da un anonimo autore con grandi conoscenze architettoniche e militari, con probabili finalità di studio preparatorio, probabilmente ispirato ad un opera cartografica a stampa del periodo. Le piante delle città italiane ricordano per molti elementi le opere di Jodocus Hondius II inserite nel "Nova et accurata Italiae Hodiernae descriptio" pubblicato a Leida nel 1627. Ottimo stato di conservazione di questo unico documento sulla città.

Jan Baptiste van Helmont
Fleet Street, London: James Flesher, William Lee. A TERNARY OF PARADOXES: The Magnetick Cure of Wounds; Nativity of Tartar in Wine; Image of God in Man [bound with] DELIRAMENTA CATARRHI: Or The Incongruities, Impossibilities, and Absurdities Couched Under the Vulgar Opinion of Defluxions Two works by Flemish chemist, physician, and physiologist Jan Baptiste van Helmont (1580-1644), translated by his English disciple Walter Charleton. A Ternary of Paradoxes is the revised and enlarged second impression; Deliramenta Catarrhi is the first edition. Both were published in London in 1650 and apparently bound together in one volume not long after. These appear to be the first works by van Helmont to be translated into English. The book is housed in its original leather covers and remains in quite good shape for its great age. The covers show general wear as seen in the photos; both covers have been reattached and are still tender. An owner from the early 1900s left a couple ink signatures and a few pencil notes inside the front cover and to a blank page. An owner from 1732 inscribed the first of the two title pages and marked a couple other pages; the text otherwise has some general signs of age and use but no significant flaws. Extremely rare in any condition. 5.75" X 7.25", 279 pages total.

London: Printed by J. G. and are to be sold by John Holden, 1650. Condition: Very Good binding. Folio. First Edition of Thomas Bayly's Herba Parietis. Bayly published, after the execution of King Charles I, "some writings which gave offence to the authorities of the commonwealth, and led to this imprisonment in Newgate." (DNB 1370). There he wrote this moralizing romance, which includes in the preface a defense of the author, in response to doubts regarding the authenticity of Bayly's first known work: 'Certamen Religiosum," on a Conference between the late King and Earl of Worcester concerning religion. Bayly's response is quite amusing: "was there ever such a Sir Jarvis Simple knowne as this Fellow makes himself?" Title page in red and black; additional title page, engraved. Engraved initials and headpieces. Simple black border to the text. Bookplate of Henry Devenish Harben, a British barrister, politician, and major supporter of women's suffrage.

According to Wing's collation, this copy appears to missing a few leaves including: 2 preliminary leaves; leaf B1 (page 1/2) of Book II; blank 2D4 following page [206] of Book II; page 44 concludes with a catchword, presumably there are as many as 8 pages lacking according to Wing, presumably an index. Rebound in early 19th century sheep with corners and marbled paper over boards; spine desiccated; separation beginning at the front hinge; textblock is sunken in the middle so that the central signatures are pushing out towards the fore-edge (images available); the textblock was tightly trimmed at the time of rebinding and there is occasional mild loss of text, usually just the shoulder notes suffer, but on a few occasions the text itself; still quite readable as any loss is minimal; text is toned throughout; names and early doodling on the verso of the title page; previous owner name on the front pastedown; endpapers show evidence of moisture exposure but there are no distinct tidelines in the textblock; while this copy has some challenges, it remains an extraordinarily scarce book; digital images can be made available upon request.

Alexander Giraffi / James Howell
London: Printed for R. Lowndes. Condition: Fair binding. 24mo. A contemporary account of the revolutions of Naples, first organized by the fisherman Masaniello. Giraffi's tale damns the agitator as a tyrant and villain of the most perfidious sort; being a biased retelling written by an Italian nobleman with obvious conflicts of interest, this work remained the authoritative account for some time, as most readers and writers reveled in the fantastic tale. This being the first part of Lord Alessandro Giraffi's eventually two part history of Masaniello. One of three first printings, priority unknown, all published in 1650. Hand colored frontispiece of Masaniello, with shirt brightly colored in sky-blue gouache. Title in black and red. Collates complete against the ESTC. Hinges cracked, but binding holding. Wear to the leather binding, especially to the spine, and some worming to the boards. (ESTC R21699). [Attributes: First Edition]

[MANUSCRIPT]. WILLIAM III, Prince of Orange.
Original manuscript order signed and sealed at the army camp at Lembeek by William (Willem) III, Prince of Orange (1650-1702), Stadholder of the Dutch Republic and future King of England. It is also signed next to the seal by William's secretary Constantijn Huygens II (1638-1697), an important statesman in his own right, son of the poet and diplomat of the same name, and brother of the scientist Christian Huygens. Appointed Stadholder in 1672, William governed most provinces of the Dutch Republic to his death. In 1689 he was also crowned King William III of England and Ireland, and King William II of Scotland.During the summer campaign of 1675 William stayed several months with his army at Camp Lembeek, south of Brussels. King Louis XIV of France fought against the Dutch in Flanders and Brabant during the Franco-Dutch War, which began in 1672 and ended with the Peace of Nijmegen in 1678. In the spring and early summer of 1675 Louis had conquered Liège, Dinant, Hoey, Tongeren and other cities.In this document William orders the magistrate of 's-Hertogenbosch to hospitalize the sick (and presumably the wounded) of his army, sent to the city by "Wuester", quartermaster of the Dutch army. The document was formerly folded and has a contemporary note on what would have been the outside, "missive van sijn Hoogheyt". In very good condition.

Nicholas Caussin
London: William Bentley, 1650. A rare first complete edition of Caussin's work, a moral opus, that gives a Christianised account of what Caussin defines as four of the most prominent passions: Love, Desire, Anger and Envy. The aim of the book is to provide advice on how to effectively manage these emotions. Nicholas Caussin (1583 -1651) was a French Jesuit and Louis XIII's confessor between the months of March and December, 1637. After a falling out with Cardinal Richelieu, he was exiled to Quimper. There is controversy over the reason behind this dispute, but new research by Philippe Seller and Gerad Ferreyrolles have claimed it was due to his strong religious oppositions to hell's existence. In 1643, after the death of his banisher, he returned, and was asked to form an opinion of the Moral Theology of Jesuits. Collated incomplete, lacking a plate. CONDITION In a quarter morocco binding. Externally worn with rubbing to extremities and spine. Previous owner's document attached to front free-endpapers. Internally, firmly bound with failed binding to first few pages. Pages generally bright with occasional marking. Ink marking to the title page. Some foxing throughout not affecting the text. Final three pages laid down. Overall Condition: Good Only.

Ulugh Beg (1394-1449), the "Great Prince", born as Muhammad Taragay, was raised at the court of his grandfather, Tamerlane. From 1409 onwards he ruled Mawara'annahr from Samarkand, where he had a three-story observatory built. One of the oldest inhabited cities in Central Asia, Samarkand prospered from its location on the trade route between China and the Mediterranean (Silk Road). - "An important result of the scientific work of Ulugh Beg and his school was the astronomical tables called the 'Zij'" (DSB). The present work offers the calendrical and chronological section of his tables. It was through the works of the Oxford mathematician and oriental scholar John Greaves (1602-52), formerly professor of astronomy, who edited the volume, that Newton became acquainted with the works of Ulugh Beg. The second part of the volume offers the first European edition and translation of any text by the important Arab historian Abu al-Fida (Abulfeda, 1273-1331), ruler of Hamah among the Mamluks: his geography of present-day Usbekistan. - Some browning and spo … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Weldon, Sir Anthony]
London: Printed by R.I. and are to be sold by John Wright at the King's-Head in the Old Baily, 1650. First edition. Frontispiece portrait of King James. [viii], 197 pp. 1 vols. Small 8vo. Scandals in the Court of King James: a "violently anti-Jacobean tract" Contemporary sheep. Corners finely repaired at an early date, red spine label. Fine. Wing W1272. Item #246142 This "violently anti-Jacobean tract" (ODNB) was attributed to politician and reputed satirist Sir Anthony Weldon (d. 1648) within a year of its publication. "Despite the somewhat perilous uncertainty of evidence for Weldon's role as a satirist, the publications with which he is commonly associated have enjoyed enormous popularity and influence on later historians. Sir Walter Scott's republication of The Court and Character in The Secret History of the Court of James I (1811) revived them, and modern historians have frequently had cause to lament the way in which 'Weldon' succeeded in distorting history. He may have been unfair, and his satire was certainly just one example drawn from a rich contemporary vein of courtly criticism, but his version of James VI and I as a perverted, hypocritical, slobbering villain remains compelling" (ODNB).

Joseph Mede; Richard More (trans.)
Printed at London by J. L. for Phil Stephens, 1650. Collated complete using copac, Historical Texts, catch words and page signatures. (ESTC R1085). Contains very scarce publisher's advertisements to the rear of the work. Contains fold out plate and demonstrative vignettes as called for. The second English edition of the work. First published in Latin as Clavis Apocalyptica in 1627. The first English edition was published in 1643. The second edition is the first edition to contain the additional work 'A Conjecture Concerning Gog and Magog in the Revelation' who, according to the Book of Ezekiel, are the enemies of God's people. Joseph Mede was an English biblical scholar. This work, his magnum opus, Clavis Apocalyptica (The Key of the Revelation) was a hugely influential work on the interpretation of the Book of Revelation. The work predicts the end of the world by 1716, by which time the Jewish population would be miraculously converted to Christianity in preparation for the second coming. The work drew heavily upon Eastern thought, more specifically understanding the Apocalypse through a book of ancient dream interpretation attributed to Achmer. Those who followed Mede's chronology include Isaac Newton and Thomas Goodwin. The English Edition was translated by Richard More. More was the MP for Bishop's Castle, and was a well-known puritan who wrote heavily on puritan themes. In 1643 More translated the first English edition of Clavis Apocalyptica.

Danielis Sennerti [Daniel Sennert]
Lugduni: Ioannis Anthonii Huguetan, 1650. In Latin. Including his Epitome scientiae naturalis ( first published in 1618), De Consensu & Dissensu Chymicorum cum Galenicis, De Origine Animarum in Brutis and his Hypomnemata physicae (first published in 1636) Sennert is notable for his contributions to the development of an early version of atomic theory. Specifically, he forms an intermediate bridge between the works of Geber and the more recognized Corpuscularianists such as Robert Boyle. Corpuscularianism differs from modern atomic theory in a number of significant ways, most noticeably a lack of a mathematical argument for its existence, something Sennert specifically rejected. Sennert is a intermediate step between corpsucular particle theory and Aristotelian forms. The same works that are often sited as demonstrating his early atomist views also emphasize the importance of substantial forms. Sennert's theories were based on an experiential and experimental evidence that he gathered both from eyewitness accounts and his own laboratory experience. One of Sennert's most notable experiments was a variation on the "reduction to the pristine state." Taking an alloy of gold and silver, the silver was dissolved from the alloy in aqua fortis. In the classic "reduction to the pristine state," the silver was then precipitated out of the aqua fortis by the addition of salt of tartar and then heated in a crucible to return it to its recognizable metallic form. Sennert's innovation on this experiment was the addition of pouring the silver-aqua fortis solution through a paper filter bef … [Click Below for Full Description]

Nicholas Caussin
London: William Bentley, 1650. A rare first complete edition of Caussin's work, a moral opus, that gives a Christianised account of what Caussin defines as four of the most prominent passions: Love, Desire, Anger and Envy. The aim of the book is to provide advice on how to effectively manage these emotions. Nicholas Caussin (1583 -1651) was a French Jesuit and Louis XIII's confessor between the months of March and December, 1637. After a falling out with Cardinal Richelieu, he was exiled to Quimper. There is controversy over the reason behind this dispute, but new research by Philippe Seller and Gerad Ferreyrolles have claimed it was due to his strong religious oppositions to hell's existence. In 1643, after the death of his banisher, he returned, and was asked to form an opinion of the Moral Theology of Jesuits. Collated incomplete, lacking a plate. In a quarter morocco binding. Externally worn with rubbing to extremities and spine. Previous owner's document attached to front free-endpapers. Internally, firmly bound with failed binding to first few pages. Pages generally bright with occasional marking. Ink marking to the title page. Some foxing throughout not affecting the text. Final three pages laid down. Overall Condition: Good Only.

MERIAN, CASPAR
Rotterdam", kopergravure gedrukt van platen. Afm. 20 x 70 cm. Gegraveerd ca. 1650 door Salomon Savry, uitgegeven te Frankfurt a.M. door Caspar Merian in 1659 als onderdeel van de atlas Topographia Germaniae Inferioris. Topographia Germaniae Inferioris was een deel van Topographia Germaniae, het belangrijkste werk van kopergraveur en uitgever Matthäus Merian de Oudere (1593 ? 1650). Hij gaf dit werk gezamenlijk uit met Martin Zeiler (1589-1661) uit Ulm, die voor de tekst verantwoordelijk was. Het werk bevat ongeveer 2.000 afbeeldingen en plattegronden van steden, kloosters en kastelen en geldt als een van de belangrijkste werken op het gebied van geografische afbeeldingen. Merian was 1642 begonnen met de uitgave van een overzichtswerk met stadsgezichten, afbeeldingen van landschappen en kaarten waar hij reeds decennia lang tekeningen voor had verzameld. Tot 1688 werd de serie uitgebreid met verdere beschrijvingen van Europese gebieden tot uiteindelijk 30 banden met in totaal 92 kaarten en 2142 stadsgezichten en was daarmee een van de grootste uitgegeven boeken uit z?n tijd. De eerste delen graveert Matthäus Merian zelf en geeft deze ook zelf uit. Later wordt aan een groot aantal in die tijd beroemde graveurs het graveerwerk uitbesteed en nemen zijn zoons Matthäus de Jongere en Caspar het uitgeverswerk over. Prijs: Euro 1.450,-

Joseph Mede; Richard More (trans.)
Printed at London by J. L. for Phil Stephens, 1650. Collated complete using copac, Historical Texts, catch words and page signatures. (ESTC R1085). Contains very scarce publisher's advertisements to the rear of the work. Contains fold out plate and demonstrative vignettes as called for. The second English edition of the work. First published in Latin as Clavis Apocalyptica in 1627. The first English edition was published in 1643. The second edition is the first edition to contain the additional work 'A Conjecture Concerning Gog and Magog in the Revelation' who, according to the Book of Ezekiel, are the enemies of God's people. Joseph Mede was an English biblical scholar. This work, his magnum opus, Clavis Apocalyptica (The Key of the Revelation) was a hugely influential work on the interpretation of the Book of Revelation. The work predicts the end of the world by 1716, by which time the Jewish population would be miraculously converted to Christianity in preparation for the second coming. The work drew heavily upon Eastern thought, more specifically understanding the Apocalypse through a book of ancient dream interpretation attributed to Achmer. Those who followed Mede's chronology include Isaac Newton and Thomas Goodwin. The English Edition was translated by Richard More. More was the MP for Bishop's Castle, and was a well-known puritan who wrote heavily on puritan themes. In 1643 More translated the first English edition of Clavis Apocalyptica. He died later that year. A fascinating and extremely scarce work. Rebound in brown crushed morocco. Externally very smart with s … [Click Below for Full Description]
