Professional paper repair to some pages including title and portrait. Old water stain and minute traces of old worming. Inscribed in Latin on front blank by Walter Kennedy. Rare survival from an old Gaelic family of the Pale. A good copy. "This book, which centred on religious controversies, was allegdly written by Thomas Bayly, a Church of England clergyman who became a convert to the catholic faith. Thus, Walter Kennedy, a catholic alderman, and owner of this book, would have been interested in the religious arguments proposed in this volume.RARE SURVIVAL FROM AN OLD GAELIC FAMILY OF THE PALEThe ownership of books from the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries by Gaelic or Old English Irishmen are of great rarity. None of their libraries have survived and even catalogues of the collections of some, such as the Earls of Desmond, the Barons Delvin, and members of the Kennedy family, have not come down to us. The rarity of surviving volumes is not in doubt and may only be so because we have not yet looked hard enough for inscriptions in books … [Click Below for Full Description]

[VIEWS - NETHERLANDS - HEEMSTEDE]. MOUCHERON, Isaac de.
A magnificent meter-high bird's-eye view of the sumptuous Heemstede house and gardens, the estate of Diderick van Velthuysen (1651-1716). "The fame of the gardens of Heemstede (near Houten in the province of Utrecht) was, and still is, considerable. In literature both at home and abroad the design of this garden is listed only after Het Loo, Zeist and De Voorst [the palaces of William III and the leading noblemen of his court] as a highlight in Dutch garden art. Heemstede owes this renown above all to Daniel Stoopendaal's glorious aerial view"( Anglo-Dutch Garden).In good condition, with only a few small rust spots and two small holes, and with a small tear repaired. Mice appear to have nibbled at the upper right margin of each sheet, but politely stopped before reaching the border. A magnificent view of sumptuous formal gardens.l Anglo-Dutch Garden 62; Berlin Kat. 3401; Hollstein (Dutch & Flemish) XXVIII, p. 142, 43.

[TACHARD, Guy].
8 pp.Very rare first and only edition in the original Italian, of a pamphlet detailing the visit of the Siamese embassy to Rome, under de guidance of the Jesuit Guy Tachard, where they would meet with Pope Innocent XI.The French Jesuit missionary Guy Tachard (1651-1712) was sent on two occasions to the Kingdom of Siam by Louis XIV, as part of an embassy to achieve a commercial agreement with King Narai of Siam. Its capital, Ayut'is, became a French Macao for merchants and missionaries from and to the further east. On his return from Siam in 1688, Tachard went to Rome in his capacity as ambassador of the King of Siam, carrying gifts and a letter from King Narai to Innocent XI. He was accompanied by Siamese mandarins and two catechists from Tongking. The mission from Siam was officially received by Pope Innocent on 23 December 1688 at a splendid public ceremony. They were unaware that Narai had meanwhile died and that during his final illness an anti-French mandarin had seized power, killed most of his family and married his daughter, taking the throne on Narai's death. The revolution severed Siam's ties with Europe, excepting only the Dutch.First leaf detached. Browned, a minor water stain in the corner of the fore-edge margin and a white spot at the upper right corner of the first leaf caused by the removal of a location number. A very rare pamphlet on the Siamese embassy to Rome.l Cordier, Indosinica, cols. 954-955; ICCU 037266 (5 copies); WorldCat (1 copy, the same); cf. Lach & Van Kley III, pp. 252-256.

REGO, Sebastião do.
[28], 354 pp.Rare first edition, in the original Portuguese, of the first biography of the Catholic priest and missionary Joseph Vaz (Goa, India 1651-Kandy, Ceylon, now Sri Lanka, 1711), born to Catholic parents from small villages in the province of Goa: Brahmins said to have come from the Konkani ethnic and linguistic group. The VOC (Dutch East India Company) had expelled the Portuguese from Ceylon in the years 1639-1658. Dutch Calvinist missionaries began operating there and frequently persecuted and repressed Catholics, in spite of the Dutch reputation for tolerance in their own republic. In 1687, concluding the his new community could already stand on its own feet, Vaz emigrated to Ceylon to help Catholics there and attempt to spread the faith, walking barefoot through the whole island, often disguised as a beggar. He was briefly imprisoned, accused of being a Portuguese spy. When smallpox broke out in 1697, he both cared for the sick and introduced hygienic regulations. He learned to speak both Sinhalese and Tamil and remains a symbol of tolerance among rival ethnic groups. He was also befriended by the Buddhist King Vimaladharmasuriya II of the East Ceylonese Kingdom of Kandy, which had negotiated with and fought against both the Portuguese and the Dutch. He died in that kingdom. The revival of Catholicism in Ceylon came largely thanks to his efforts. Although movements to grant him sainthood began already in 1713, Pope John Paul II was to beatify him only in 1995 and Pope Francis to canonize him in 2014/15. John Paul called him "the greatest Christian missionary tha … [Click Below for Full Description]

[8], LII, 217, [3 blank]; [4], “313” [= 323], [1 blank] , 96 pp.First French edition of Kaempfer's ground-breaking account of Japan. "It is the most thorough and widely quoted source of information on the history and culture of Japan during the closed centuries of the Tokugawa" (Bowers). Engelbert Kaempfer (1651-1716), a German physician serving the Dutch East India Company (VOC), arrived at Dejima in 1690. Although his two-year stay at Dejima was severely restricted, broken only by the yearly visits to the Shogun at Edo, Kaempfer managed to gather a vast amount of information about Japan's natural history, geography, culture, religion, government, language, etc., and he even built up a collection of maps, charts, natural history specimens and other objects. The 45 plates include maps, charts, views and illustrations of plants and animals, instruments, interiors and acupuncture.Some spotting, title-page of volume 2 slightly dirty, bindings show some light wear, otherwise in very good condition.l Alt-Japan-Katalog 713; Cordier, Japnonica, col. 416; STCN (5 copies); cf.

KAEMPFER, Engelbert (Sir Joseph BANKS, ed.).
[4], 3, [1 blank] pp.First and only edition of one of the rarest books on Japanese flora. The author Engelbert Kaempfer (1651 - 1716) was a professor from Lemgo, Germany, who joined the Dutch East India Company (VOC) as a medical doctor in 1685. After periods in what are now India and Indonesia he travelled in 1690 to Japan to work as a doctor on Dejima (Deshima), the Dutch trading post or factory in Nagasaki. Sir Hans Sloan acquired his manuscripts, alsong with his drawings and herbarium, and arranged for their translation and publication, the first to appear in translation was The history of Japan in 1727. This English translation established Kaempfer's reputation as the 18th-century authority on Japan and deeply influenced Japan's image in Europe. The renowned botanist and companion of the 1768 Cook expedition Sir Joseph Banks (1743-1820) was responsible for the editing and publication of the present work and dedicated it to the curators of the Library. In most cases no plates had previously been made from these drawings, so they remained unpublished. In the last years of his life Kaempfer himself had published only a small number of his drawings in his Amoenitatum exoticarum, printed in Lemgo in 1712. Thus the present publication introduces many Japanese plants for the first time to a large audience in the West. Kaempfer's herbrarium is now in the Natural History Museum, South Kensington.Royal Library duplicate stamp in the foot of title page. With some minor foxing, the last few plates stained only in the lower margin, not affecting the illustrations. Otherwise in very … [Click Below for Full Description]

[DESCARTES]. LENTULUS, Cyriacus.
Herbornae Nassoviorum, 1651. Rare first edition of this anti-Cartesian work by Cyriacus Lentulus (1620?-1678), set in the form of a dialogue between "Cartesius" and Lentulus. 'In 1647, Rene Descartes explained why he had chosen to leave France and live in Holland ... Not everyone was convinced by Descartes' description of the Netherlands as a hideaway, or of himself as the retiring philosophical hermit cached within it. In 1651, for instance, the anti-Cartesian Cyriacus Lentulus insisted that Descartes' real craving had not been for seclusion, but rather for fame. He pointed out that no place on earth was better for garnering scholarly celebrity than the place in which Descartes has allegedly chosen to make himself invisible - a fact which, he insisted, Descartes knew better than anyone' (Carol Pal, ^gRepublic of Women: Rethinking the Republic of Letters in the Seventeenth Century^g, 2012, p. 27). Further still in the present work, Lentulus 'objects to the rejection of the syllogism in the ^gDiscours^g on the grounds that there is simply no alternative to the use of syllogistic logic for the derivation of conclusions from premises' (Tad M. Schmaltz, ^gEarly Modern Cartesianisms: Dutch and French Constructions^g, 2017, p. 81). On July 1, 1651 Count Louis Henry of Nassau sent a letter from Dillenburg to the universities of Leiden, Franeker, Groningen, Utrecht, and Harderwijk, and to the illustrious school of Breda. As patron of the college in Herborn (in present-day Hessen, Germany) he was worried about the unrest at this institution arising from the appointment of Joha … [Click Below for Full Description]

Andrada, Jacinto Freyre de.
Lisbon : Ocina Craesbeeckiana, 1651. João de Castro (1500-1548) was a Portuguese humanist, nobleman, and the fourth viceroy of Portuguese India. In 1543 he was named commander of a fleet and ordered to clear the Atlantic European seas of pirates. He became the Viceroy of Portuguese India in 1547, but died a year later and was buried in Goa by St. Francis Xavier. Bouterwek, in “History of Spanish and Portuguese Literature” (1823), claims in relation to the book that “no biographical work, deserving to be ranked on a level with this, had hitherto appeared either in Portuguese or any other modern language. Andrada is reproached with a certain degree of far-fetched elegance and refi ned subtlety; and certainly his historical style might often, with advantage, be more simple. But that this ingenious writer upon the whole entertained the most correct notion of the rhetorical cultivation of historical prose, and that his intention was to write an energetic style appropriate to his subject, but by no means to make an ostentatious display of elegant phrases, would be sufficiently evident from the character of the whole work, even though the author had not, in his brief preface, explained himself with sufficient clearness on this point. He observes, that he has written his book in the language of truth, and according to credible authorities”.

1651. GRANDE VOLUMEIN FORMATO 36 CM X 26 CM CIRCA OTTIMA LA RILEGATURA CONE DA FOTOLìvio, Tito (lat. T. Livius). - Storico latino (n. Padova 59 a. C. - m. 17 d. C.), autore di una storia di Roma dalla fondazione (ab Urbe condita libri) alla morte di Druso (9 a. C.). Di questa vasta trattazione in forma annalistica sono giunti a noi i libri I-X (dal 754-53 al 293 a. C.) e XXI-XLV (dal 218 al 167 a. C.) oltre a numerosi frammenti (come quello del libro XCI, su Sertorio, conservato in un palinsesto, e quelli del libro CXX, sulla morte e la figura di Cicerone, conservati da Seneca il Vecchio), cioè circa un quarto dell'opera che, come ci informano i sommarî (periochae) compilati nei secc. 3°-4° d. C., era costituita di 142 libri. Per la stesura di quest'opera, che cominciò tra il 27 e il 25 a. C. e cui attese per tutto il resto della vita, L. si giovò di fonti storiografiche di svariato valore Tito Livio intese scrivere l'epopea del popolo romano, con intenti sostanzialmente non diversi da quelli che spinsero, in pari tempo, Virgilio alla stesura dell'Eneide; per questo le poetiche leggende delle origini sono accolte nella sua storia in quanto rispondenti allo spirito della romanità e tali da avvolgere i primordî del popolo romano in un'aura di veneranda grandezza. L'imparzialità e la nobiltà d'animo di L., riconosciuta da Tacito e Seneca il Vecchio, ci fa maggiormente rimpiangere la perdita di quella sezione dell'opera ove L. trattava dell'età delle guerre civili, a proposito delle quali, come risulta dagli scarsi frammenti pervenutici, lo storico non esitava a dare giudizî, q … [Click Below for Full Description]

COLOMBINA, Gasparo.
[15], [1 blank] pp. 1 leaf + plates.Very rare first and only edition of a work on drawing and painting by the architect and priest Gasparo Colombina (died 1651), containing 4 theoretical discourses dealing with the practice of drawing, painting, colouring and the expression of emotion through the study of the expressions of the body. Here (as often) accompanied by a series of plates with letterpress title-page by Philipp Esengren, illustrating the various attitudes and expressions of parts of the body and the face, depiciting eyes, ears, hands and the faces of children, women and men. The last 3 plates show horses, birds and lions. The two parts appear to have been published together, though also sold separately. Many copies lack some of the plates. Schlosser attributed the whole work to Esegrenio, but the text part is definitely written by Gasparo Colombina. Philipp Esengren (Filippo Esegrenio, 1594-1631) was a rather obscure Flemish painter, engraver, antiquarian and goldsmith active in Venice during the beginning of the 17th century.Covers worn and discoloured.

HOBBES, Thomas.
London printed for Andrew Crooke at the Green Dragon in St Pauls Church-yard. THIRD EDITION, "ORNAMENTS EDITION", 1651, but circa 1680. Good impression of the figure at top of engraved title, as often after the first edition impressions are weak. Tall folio in 4s, approximately 330 x 200 mm, 13 x 7¾ inches, pages without watermarks, pages: engraved pictorial title page followed by printed title with 25 ornaments (fleurons) in 5 rows, leaves A2 & A3, which contain The Epistle, Contents and Errata, folding table, 1-250, 249-256, 261-394, mispagination present in all copies, bound in full calf, early covers with new spine at sometime, gilt title and date to spine. Binding rubbed and scuffed, spine faded, small repairs to corners, pale staining and age-browning to folding table, small repair to blank side, no loss, pale staining to title page, 20 pages heavily browned, all readable, 2 small holes in text with 2 letters missing but easily understood, pale age-browning and spotting to many margins. According to Noel Malcolm Volume 1, page 264 of his Works of Thomas Hobbes, "the Ornaments (edition) is far from being a luxury product; it uses a distinctively rough and poor-quality paper, which is thin, feathery to the touch, prone to browning"; See also pages 258-271 of Noel Malcolm. Carl H. Pforzheimer Library of English Literature, Volume 2, page 494, states "This copy, from the breadth of its margins, appears to be upon large-paper (our copy is the same size).

1651. GRANDE VOLUMEIN FORMATO 36 CM X 26 CM CIRCA OTTIMA LA RILEGATURA CONE DA FOTOLìvio, Tito (lat. T. Livius). - Storico latino (n. Padova 59 a. C. - m. 17 d. C.), autore di una storia di Roma dalla fondazione (ab Urbe condita libri) alla morte di Druso (9 a. C.). Di questa vasta trattazione in forma annalistica sono giunti a noi i libri I-X (dal 754-53 al 293 a. C.) e XXI-XLV (dal 218 al 167 a. C.) oltre a numerosi frammenti (come quello del libro XCI, su Sertorio, conservato in un palinsesto, e quelli del libro CXX, sulla morte e la figura di Cicerone, conservati da Seneca il Vecchio), cioè circa un quarto dell'opera che, come ci informano i sommarî (periochae) compilati nei secc. 3°-4° d. C., era costituita di 142 libri. Per la stesura di quest'opera, che cominciò tra il 27 e il 25 a. C. e cui attese per tutto il resto della vita, L. si giovò di fonti storiografiche di svariato valore Tito Livio intese scrivere l'epopea del popolo romano, con intenti sostanzialmente non diversi da quelli che spinsero, in pari tempo, Virgilio alla stesura dell'Eneide; per questo le poetiche leggende delle origini sono accolte nella sua storia in quanto rispondenti allo spirito della romanità e tali da avvolgere i primordî del popolo romano in un'aura di veneranda grandezza. L'imparzialità e la nobiltà d'animo di L., riconosciuta da Tacito e Seneca il Vecchio, ci fa maggiormente rimpiangere la perdita di quella sezione dell'opera ove L. trattava dell'età delle guerre civili, a proposito delle quali, come risulta dagli scarsi frammenti pervenutici, lo storico non esitava a dare giudizî, q … [Click Below for Full Description]

Jeremy Taylor
London: R. Royston. THE RULE AND EXERCISES OF HOLY DYING The extremely rare 1651 first edition of the most famous work by English cleric Jeremy Taylor (1613-1667), one of the greatest prose stylists of the English language, often called the "Shakespeare of the Divines". The Rules and Exercises of Holy Dying is usually issued together with The Rule and Exercises of Holy Living, which Taylor published the previous year; but it was first issue here as a separate work. The subtitle reads: "in which are described the means and instruments of preparing our selves and others respectively, for a blessed death, and the remedies against the evils and temptations proper to the state of sicknesse: together with prayers and acts of vertue to be used by sick and dying persons, or by others standing in their attendance; to which are added rules for the visitation of the sick and offices proper for that ministery". The text is the 1651 original. The book was handsomely rebound in about 1909 (as dated in the owner's signature on the second page). The covers are fine leather with a ribbed spine; the inside of the covers are also leather, elaborately decorated; all text edges are gilt. The condition is very good. The covers show minor wear, the only significant flaw being a crack in the top inch of the front spine gutter. The text is firmly bound. An owner bookplate is affixed to the front endpaper. The text has slight soiling, a few water spots, a few light pencil marks; no serious flaw -- really quite well preserved for a text this age. Again, very, very scarce.

He learned the art of etching and printing from his father, and helped grow the family printing and mapmaking business to one of the largest in his time. It was a family business; Nicolaes Visscher I (1618–1679), and Nicolaes Visscher II (1649–1702) were also mapmakers in Amsterdam. The trademark of the Visschers was a fisherman, after their name. A small fisherman would be strategically placed somewhere near water. Their map plates were reused for a century by other printers who unknowingly copied the entire plates, including the tell-tale fishermen. Observant scholars are thus able to trace the provenance of Bibles, maps, and landscapes from these signs. // Die Visscher waren eine berühmte und bedeutende niederländische Familie von Kupferstechern, Kartographen, Kartenmachern und Verlegern.

[7], 136, [1 blank], [35], [1 blank] pp. Fourth known copy of the first edition of Hendrik Schoof's Latin and Dutch adaptation of Comenius's Janua linguarum, an extremely influential version, aimed at a broader public, that served as the basis for the "1647" [=1657] Latin and English edition. No copy is known in any Dutch library. This revolutionary method for learning Latin contained 1000 sentences that attempted to present the basic Latin vocabulary in the context of its use, rather than teaching rules of grammar and memorizing lists of words. Schoof's Latin and Dutch edition is based on this revised version of the simplified text. Instead of 1000 numbered sentences it contains 500 numbered groups of related words, usually opening with the most general word, followed by more specific words. Schoof's present edition served as the model for Joseph Brookbank's Latin and English edition, published in 1657 ("1647"on title-page). Since the book was intended for beginners, often people with relatively little education, most editions were small and inexpensive and have become extremely rare.

He returned to the Netherlands in 1647 and died in 1649. The collected materials were put together by his widow, edited by the Socinian theologian Andreas Wissewatius and published in 1651 by Franciscus Hackius.The title-page slightly thumbed, and minor damp-stains in the inner margins of the last 15 leaves, otherwise a very good copy. Landwehr & V.d. Krogt, VOC 650, cf. 651-652 (German and French editions); STCN (8 copies); Tiele, Bibl. 928; cf. Lach & Van Kley III, pp. 1029-1031.

1651. GRANDE VOLUMEIN FORMATO 36 CM X 26 CM CIRCA OTTIMA LA RILEGATURA CONE DA FOTOLìvio, Tito (lat. T. Livius). - Storico latino (n. Padova 59 a. C. - m. 17 d. C.), autore di una storia di Roma dalla fondazione (ab Urbe condita libri) alla morte di Druso (9 a. C.). Di questa vasta trattazione in forma annalistica sono giunti a noi i libri I-X (dal 754-53 al 293 a. C.) e XXI-XLV (dal 218 al 167 a. C.) oltre a numerosi frammenti (come quello del libro XCI, su Sertorio, conservato in un palinsesto, e quelli del libro CXX, sulla morte e la figura di Cicerone, conservati da Seneca il Vecchio), cioè circa un quarto dell'opera che, come ci informano i sommarî (periochae) compilati nei secc. 3°-4° d. C., era costituita di 142 libri. Per la stesura di quest'opera, che cominciò tra il 27 e il 25 a. C. e cui attese per tutto il resto della vita, L. si giovò di fonti storiografiche di svariato valore Tito Livio intese scrivere l'epopea del popolo romano, con intenti sostanzialmente non diversi da quelli che spinsero, in pari tempo, Virgilio alla stesura dell'Eneide; per questo le poetiche leggende delle origini sono accolte nella sua storia in quanto rispondenti allo spirito della romanità e tali da avvolgere i primordî del popolo romano in un'aura di veneranda grandezza. L'imparzialità e la nobiltà d'animo di L., riconosciuta da Tacito e Seneca il Vecchio, ci fa maggiormente rimpiangere la perdita di quella sezione dell'opera ove L. trattava dell'età delle guerre civili, a proposito delle quali, come risulta dagli scarsi frammenti pervenutici, lo storico non esitava a dare giudizî, q … [Click Below for Full Description]

Donne, John (1573-1631)
London:, 1651. FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE, PRINTED ON LARGE PAPER. . Quarto:. With the fine engraved portrait of Donne by Pieter Lombart bound opposite the title page. This copy is bound in contemporary tanned sheep, rebacked and recornered, with gold ruling to the boards and spine. The text is on wonderfully fresh condition. The leaves are clean and bright with broad margins. A very special copy, one of only five known on this large and heavy paper. Provenance: Thomas Hutchinson (signature, 1721, on initial blank) — Henry Buxton-Forman (bookplate, penciled initials and note) — Edward Hubert Litchfield (bookplate; Parke-Bernet, 3 December 1951, lot 328), acquired by Seven Gables, 1962. Published posthumously by the poet’s son, John Donne (1604-1662), this collection contains 129 letters, written between December 1600 (a year before Donne's marriage to Anne More) and March 1631 (two months before his death.) "'In no other kind of conveyance,' Donne once told Goodere, 'can we find so perfect a Character of a man as in his Letters'. These letters provide valuable information about Donne's situation and frame of mind at the time of the poems that many readers consider his greatest achievements -the 'Anniversaries', the 'Holy Sonnets', many of the verse letters and 'A Litanie'. Moreover, the letters provide an even fuller account of the periods of intense mental and physical duress during the composition of Donne's equally important prose works -'Biathanatos', 'Pseudo-Martyr', his polemical support of the Oath of Allegiance, 'Devotions' and many of his sermons.

First Edition of Hobbes' Classic of Political Theory. There were three separate editions (not "issues," as they are sometimes mistakenly referred to) of Hobbes' classic, with a title-page dated 1651. This is the true first, with the "head" ornament on the title-page, and the errata uncorrected. A second printing, actually produced abroad with a false imprint, has a bear surrounded by foliage; and a third edition, actually printed around 1680, has a triangle of type ornaments on the title-page and modernized spelling.Hobbes' famous essay on the origin of the State created (and still creates) a storm of controversy, since for Hobbes even the most repugnant authoritarian government is to be preferred over that celebrated Hobbesian state of nature in which anarchic life is "nasty, brutis … [Click Below for Full Description]
