        Amerique Septentrionale

      Paris: N. Sanson & P. Mariette, 1651. Copper-engraved map, with original outline colour. The rare second state of this highly important map of North America by the founder of the French School of cartography. This very rare map is the most geographically progressive portrayal of the continent made at its time, and was not superseded until Vincenzo Maria Coronelli's map of 1688. Importantly, it is the first map to depict the Great Lakes in a recognizable form, and the first to name Lake Ontario and Lake Superior. In his rendering of the region, Sanson benefited from having received a copy of The Jesuit Relations , published in Paris in 1649, a detailed account by French missionaries who had traveled in the region. Most notably, this included Father Paul Ragueneau's account of his visit to Niagara Falls and Jean Nicollet's discovery of Lake Michigan, "Lac des Puans," in 1634. Down the St. Lawrence River from the lakes, Montréal is named, the settlement having been founded by the Sieur de Maisonneuve in 1642. Elsewhere, to the north, a mysterious strait weaves over "New South Wales" on Hudson's Bay, terminating in the interior of the continent, a blank space labeled as "Mer Glaciale". This alludes to the existence of a much hoped-for Northwest Passage. On the eastern seaboard, the map notes "N[ouvelle] Amsterdam" in the place of present day New York, and is the first printed map to label "N[ouvelle] Suede," referring to the Swedish colony centered on Fort Christina, founded on the site of present-day Wilmington, Delaware in 1638. To the far southwest, Sanson based his depiction on the Father Alonso Benavides Memorial , a travel account of New Mexico, published in Madrid in 1630. It is the first printed map to label "S[anta] Fe" (which is incorrectly shown to be on the banks of the Rio Grande) and the domains of various native tribes such as the "Apache," "Navajo" and the "Taosij" (Taos). To the west, California is shown as a large island, and features some of the same nomenclature as found on Johannes de Laet's map of 1630. A striking aspect of the map is the sinusoidal projection employed by Sanson, that essentially places the globe on an elliptical graticule, creating a very pleasing aesthetic. The composition is finished by an extremely elegant Baroque title cartouche, featuring swags of fruit and vegetation. Nicholas Sanson was born in the town of Abbeville in Picardy. Something of a child prodigy, by the age of eighteen, he could already be found in Paris drafting his own maps. There he quickly rose to become Royal Geographer to Louis XIII in 1630. He maintained the position upon the ascension of the "Sun King" Louis XIV in 1643, and later served as tutor to the ambitious young monarch. In 1644, he formed a lucrative partnership with Paris publisher Pierre Mariette with the objective of producing a great atlas that could rival those of the Amsterdam houses, such as Blaeu and Jansson. The present map was devised as one of the most important maps in the atlas. The first state of the map was printed in 1650, and the present second state appeared a year later. The atlas itself, entitled Les Cartes Générales de toutes les parties du Monde was not finally assembled until 1658. It was however, a landmark moment in the history of French cartography, being the first folio atlas produced in that country. The extremely high quality of Sanson's work motivated other French mapmakers to improve the standard of their production. Sanson also greatly influenced Louis XIV's chief minister, Jean-Baptisite Colbert to heavily fund cartographic projects. This gave rise to a great French School of cartography that was to eventually wrest dominance of the mapmaking market from the Dutch by the 1680s. After Sanson's death in 1667, his work was continued by his sons, Guillaume (d.1703) and Adrian (d.1708). The first state of this map is extremely rare, with Burden citing but two copies in private American collections. This second state is also quite rare, and can be recognized by addition of a coastline north west of California, but with Lake Ontario unshaded and with the appearance of a river system. "With his 1650 Map of North America, Sanson had introduced a great deal of information concerning the nomenclature of American Indians, with words such as Apache and Navajo appearing on printed maps for the first time. He was also the first cartographer to show Santa Fe as the capital of New Mexico ... an extraordinary document of the cultural and geographical resources known in the centers of learning in Europe" (Martin & Martin).

        The Faithful Councellor: Or the Marrow of the Law in English...

      1651. "The Marrow of the Law" Sheppard, William [d. 1675]. The Faithful Councellor: Or the Marrow of the Law in English. In Two Parts. The First, Methodically and Plainly Shewing, How Any Action May be Warrantably Laid in the Common Law, For Relief in Most Causes of Wrongs Done; In Which is Handled Many of the Special and Most Useful Heads of the Law Now in Practice. The Second, By Way of Appendix, In What Cases, And for What Injuries Relief is to be Had in the High Court of Chancery; Wherein is Set Forth Very Much of the Learning Touching the Jurisdiction and Method of Proceedings in That Court. With an Exact Alphabetical Table of the Most Material Things Contained in Each Chapter. Published by Authority. London: Printed by R[obert]. W[hite] for E. Dod, N. Ekins, T. Brewster, and G. Moule, 1651. Part I Only. [vi], 164, 177-368, 553-703, [13] pp. Quarto (7-1/4" x 5-1/2"). Contemporary sheep, blind rules to boards and spine. Light rubbing to extremities, a few shallow scuffs to boards, joints just starting at ends, corners bumped and lightly worn, front pastedown loose, rear endleaves lacking. Moderate toning to text, faint dampstaining to foot of text block, faint dampspotting in a few places, edgewear to preliminaries, a few text leave and a few index leaves. Early owner signatures and a small inkstain to title page, interior otherwise clean. An appealing copy. * First edition. Sheppard's comprehensive account of common and chancery law procedure is important for being written and published in English, rather than Latin or Law French, the language of the courts and the legal profession. Its purpose was political, in the broadest sense, as much as legal, to stabilize the new Commonwealth by making its legal system comprehensible to the common man and amenable to reform, thereby lending legitimacy to the state and to the legal profession. Digested alphabetically by topic, it is also one of the first legal encyclopedias in English. This book was reissued in 1653. A second part was published in 1654. Matthews, William Sheppard, Cromwell's Law Reformer 97-99. English Short-Title Catalogue R19496.

Seinen ersten Unterricht erhielt Everdingen von R. Savery (1576-1639) in Utrecht, dann von P. Molijn (1595-1661) in Haarlem; 1645 wurde er hier in das Verzeichnis der Meister aufgenommen. Wenig ist über sein Leben bekannt, doch wissen wir, daß er von kurz nach 1640 bis um 1644 in Schweden und Norwegen reiste, wo er ausgiebig nach der Natur zeichnete. Die dort gewonnenen Landschaftsmotive verwandte er nach seiner Rückkehr in vielen seiner Arbeiten. Er war hauptsächlich als Zeichner und Radierer tätig. Ölgemälde finden sich in seinem Werk nicht viele. Seestücke sind in seinem Werk seltener und stammen aus seiner frühen Schaffenszeit.

        Pro populo Anglicano defensio, contra Claudii anonymi, alias Salmasii, Defensionem regiam. London [= Utrecht], Dv Gardianis [= D. van Ackersdijck and G. van Zijll], 1650 [=1651].

      - Full contemporary vellum. 12°: paginated: [20], 1-244. With a woodcut on the title, with an armorial device. After his study in Paris and Heidelberg the bright scholar Claudius Salmasius (1588-1653) could choose between several offers of universities. In 1631 he became professor at the University of Leiden, where he stayed the remainder of his life. In 1649 he anonymously published his Defensio Regia pro Carolo I (‘Defense of the Reign of Charles I’), probably paid by Charles II, in which he defends absolute monarchy and condemns the parliamentary government in England. As this attack was thoroughly structured and well written it took John Milton until 1651 to be able to present his Pro populo Anglicano Defensio. The present edition was in fact printed in Utrecht by D. Ackersdijck and G. van Zijll. A-L12. B0148

        The Institutes of the Lawes of England, Digested Into the Method...

      1651. "The Most Learned Civilian of His Time" Cowell, John [1554-1611]. The Institutes of the Lawes of England, Digested Into the Method of the Civill or Imperiall Institutions. Useful for all Gentlemen Who are Studious, And Desire to Understand the Customes of this Nation. Written in Latine by John Cowel, Doctor of the Civill Law, And Regius Professor in the University of Cambridge. And Translated into English, According to Act of Parliament, For the Benefit of All. By W.G. Esquire. London: Printed by Tho. Roycroft for Jo: Ridley, 1651. [x], 283, [1] pp. Octavo (6" x 3-3/4"). Contemporary speckled calf, gilt fillets to boards and spine. Moderate rubbing to extremties, corners bumped, chipping to spine ends, joints partially cracked, light toning to text. Later owner signature (of Henry Bromley, 1693) to front free endpaper, interior otherwise clean. $1,500. * First edition in English. As Walker notes, Cowell was considered to be "the most learned civilian of his time." Regius Professor of Civil Law at Cambridge from 1594 to 1611, he is remembered today as the author of an important (and controversial) dictionary, The Interpreter (1607), which went through several subsequent editions. His Institutes was originally published in 1605 in Latin as Institutiones Juris Anglicani ad Methodum Institutionum Justiniani. As indicated by the title it is an elementary textbook on English law organized in the manner of Justinian's Institutes. As Holdsworth notes, "The objects of [this book] were to promote the union of England and Scotland by pointing out the resemblances between the common law and the civil law; to give the student of the common law some knowledge of the general principles of law; and to show the students of the civil law that if they would study the common law, they would improve their knowledge of both laws, and cease to be regarded as mere children in legal knowledge. That these ideas were sound is fairly obvious [today]... but they were in advance of their time." The translation of this book was ordered by Parliament, which indicates its stature during the Commonwealth period, a stature that was not affected by Cowell's Royalist leaning.

      1651. "The Marrow of the Law" Sheppard, William [d. 1675]. The Faithful Councellor: Or the Marrow of the Law in English. In Two Parts. The First, Methodically and Plainly Shewing, How Any Action May be Warrantably Laid in the Common Law, For Relief in Most Causes of Wrongs Done; In Which is Handled Many of the Special and Most Useful Heads of the Law Now in Practice. The Second, By Way of Appendix, In What Cases, And for What Injuries Relief is to be Had in the High Court of Chancery; Wherein is Set Forth Very Much of the Learning Touching the Jurisdiction and Method of Proceedings in That Court. With an Exact Alphabetical Table of the Most Material Things Contained in Each Chapter. Published by Authority. London: Printed by R[obert]. W[hite] for E. Dod, N. Ekins, T. Brewster, and G. Moule, 1651. Part I Only. [vi], 164, 177-368, 553-703, [13] pp. Quarto (7-1/4" x 5-1/2"). Contemporary sheep, blind rules to boards and spine. Light rubbing to extremities, a few shallow scuffs to boards, joints just starting at ends, corners bumped and lightly worn, front pastedown loose, rear endleaves lacking. Moderate toning to text, faint dampstaining to foot of text block, faint dampspotting in a few places, edgewear to preliminaries, a few text leave and a few index leaves. Early owner signatures and a small inkstain to title page, interior otherwise clean. An appealing copy. * First edition. Sheppard's comprehensive account of common and chancery law procedure is important for being written and published in English, rather than Latin or Law French, the language of the courts and the legal profession. Its purpose was political, in the broadest sense, as much as legal, to stabilize the new Commonwealth by making its legal system comprehensible to the common man and amenable to reform, thereby lending legitimacy to the state and to the legal profession. Digested alphabetically by topic, it is also one of the first legal encyclopedias in English. This book was reissued in 1653. A second part was published in 1654.

Portion of front free endpaper torn away, evidence of stamp removal from lower margin of final leaf, minor foxing and toning, but a very good uncut copy. First Edition. In his experiments with live dogs Pecquet discovered the thoracic duct and chyle reservoir (receptaculum chylii), which had been sought after since Aselli?s discovery of the chyliferous vessels (lacteals) in dogs in 1627. Pecquet correctly described the termination of the chyliferous vessels (Aselli's ?lacteal veins?) in the chyle reservoir, refuting the erroneous notion that the vessels ended in the liver; he also described the junction of the thoracic duct at the union of the jugular and subclavical veins. Pecquet?s discovery clarified for the first time the process of absorption in digestion. Garrison-Morton.com 1094. Norman 1676. Norman, One Hundred Books Famous in Medicine, 28A.

        Leviathan,

      London: for Andrew Crooke, , 1651 [but actually c.1695-1702?]. or, The Matter, Form, and Power of a Common-Wealth Ecclesiastical and Civil. Folio in fours (325 x 199 mm). Contemporary mottled calf at some time neatly rebacked with the original decorative gilt spine laid down, early 19th century green morocco label, red speckled edges. Engraved allegorical title page, folding letterpress table. Armorial bookplate (on verso of letterpress title) of Sir Simon Harcourt, first Viscount Harcourt (1661?-1727), lawyer and politician, solicitor-general under Queen Anne; early 19th century armorial bookplate of Harcourt on front pastedown, possibly that of Field Marshal William Harcourt, 3rd Earl Harcourt (1743-1830). Front joint partially split but sound, head of spine chipped, small wormhole through blank lower margin of first two gatherings, scattered foxing, one or two gatherings browned, a good wide-margined copy. First edition, third state, of one of the most famous books of the 17th century: "This book produced 'a fermentation in English thought not surpassed until the advent of Darwinism'" (Pforzheimer quoting DNB). This is the so-called "Ornaments" issue. "The true first edition of the English Leviathan is the so-called 'Head' edition (the name of this and the other early editions is taken from the printer's devices which appear on the title page), published in April or May 1651... Although three editions bear the date 1651, it seems that only one edition was actually published in that year... [Noel Malcolm] argues that the 'Ornaments' [edition] dates from 1695-1702 on the basis of publishing data" (Glen Newey, The Routledge Guidebook to Hobbes' Leviathan, 2014, p. 41). In fact, Noel Malcolm, in his expansive and authoritative Oxford edition of Leviathan (2014) states that "it must be emphasised that O [the 'Ornaments' edition] is not an inferior edition, and neither is it even an edition of the same sort and rank as other editions. Rather, it constitutes Hobbes's Ausgabe letzer Hand [definitive edition] and is as such undoubtedly superior to both H ['Head' ornament issue] and B ['Bear' ornament issue]. In other words, O deserves the most serious attention and consideration in all respects".

        Don Bertran de cigarral. (Don Bertrand de Cigarral). Comedie.

      Paris, Augustin Courbe, Palais en la Salle des Merciers, 1651.. 13 x 7.5 cm. 103 pp. Broche. / Softcover. Bon exemplaire. Premier plat de couverture detache de l'ouvrage. Texte auni mais tres propre. Couverture en papier.. Avec privilege du Roy. Represente pour la premiere fois au mois de mai 1651 au Theatre du Marais. [La Scene est Madrid.] Thomas Corneille (20 August 1625 - 8 December 1709) was a French dramatist. Born in Rouen some nineteen years after his brother Pierre, the "great Corneille", Thomas's skill as a poet seems to have shown itself early. At the age of fifteen he composed a play in Latin which was performed by his fellow-pupils at the Jesuit school in Rouen, the College de Bourbon (now the Lycee Pierre Corneille). His first play in the French language, Les Engagements du hasard, was probably first performed at the Hotel de Bourgogne in 1647, although not published until 1656. Le Feint Astrologue, imitated from the Spanish of Pedro Calderon de la Barca, and itself imitated in Dryden's An Evening's Love, came the following year. After his brother's death, Thomas succeeded his vacant chair in the Academie francaise. He then turned his attention to philology, producing a new edition of the Remarques of CF Vaugelas in 1687, and in 1694 a dictionary of technical terms, intended to supplement that of the Academy. A complete translation of Ovid's Metamorphoses (he had published six books with the Heroic Epistles some years previously) followed in 1697. In 1704 he lost his sight and was constituted a "veteran," a dignity which gave him the privileges of an academician, while exempting him from the duties. He did not allow his blindness to put a stop to his work, however, and in 1708 produced a large Dictionnaire universel geographique et historique in three volumes folio. This was his last major work. He died at Les Andelys at the age of eighty-four. Thomas Corneille has often been regarded as one who, but for his surname, would merit no notice. Others feel he was unlucky in having a brother (Pierre Corneille) who outshone him, as he would have outshone almost anyone else. In 1761 Voltaire wrote of Thomas Corneille: 'si vous exceptez Racine, auquel il ne faut comparer personne, il etait le seul de son temps qui fut digne d'etre le premier au-dessous de son frere' [2] (if you except Racine, to whom nobody can be compared, he was the first of his time who was worthy to be behind his brother). The brothers were close, and practically lived together. Of his forty-two plays (the highest number assigned to him), the last edition of his complete works contains only thirty-two dramas, but he wrote several in collaboration with other authors. Two are usually reprinted as his masterpieces at the end of his brother's selected works. These are Ariane (1672) and the Le Comte d'Essex (The Earl of Essex (1678)), in the former of which Rachel attained success. (An oil painting depicting a scene from Le Comte d'Essex is in the Hermitage Museum.) But of Laodice, Camma, Stilico and some other pieces, Pierre Corneille himself said that "he wished he had written them," and he was not wont to speak lightly. Camma (1661, on the same story as Tennyson's Cup) deserves special notice. Thomas Corneille is remarkable in the literary gossip-history of his time. His Timocrate boasted of the longest run (80 nights) recorded of any play during the century. For La Devineresse, he and his cowriter Jean Donneau de Vise, founder of the Mercure galant (to which Thomas contributed), received over 6,000 livres, the largest sum known to have been paid during that period. Lastly, one of his pieces (Le Baron des Fondrieres) claims the honor of being the first which was booed off the stage. Thomas Corneille is also remarkable for having excelled in almost all dramatic genres of his time, including the new and innovative genres that were the piece a machines and opera at the time. His machine play Circe was among the most successful of the century. His three opera librettoes, Psyche (1678), Bellerophon (1679) and Medee (1693) make him, next to Philippe Quinault and Jean Galbert de Campistron, one of the most important French librettists of the seventeenth century. In a letter to her father, shortly before her execution, Charlotte Corday quotes Thomas Corneille: "Le Crime fait la honte, et non pas l'echafaud!" (The crime causes the shame, and not the scaffold!). (Wikipedia)

Interessantes Exemplar zu dessen weiter zu erforschender Provenienz wir in den folgenden Anmerkungen dieser Beschreibung erste Hinweise geben. Anmerkungen: Arnobius (der Ältere, auch Arnobius Afer; + um 330) war um das Jahr 300 Rhetor in Sicca Veneria, einer antike Stadt in Numidien. Heute liegt dort El Kef im nördlichen Tunesien. Anfangs bekämpfte er das Christentum, wurde aber im Traum bekehrt. Der zuständige Bischof wollte ihn aber nicht in die Gemeinde aufnehmen und deshalb verfasste Arnobius kurz nach den Verfolgungen der Christen durch Diokletian seine überlieferte Apologie Disputationes adversus gentes, auch Adversus nationes genannt, um seinen Glauben zu beweisen. "Eine eingehende Beschreibung seines Höhlengleichnisses, wie auch dessen Wirkungsgeschichte und Abgrenzung zu dem von Plato oder Aristoteles ist in Hans Blumenbergs "Höhlenausgänge" zufinden." Arnobius der Jüngere, Bischof in Gallien um 450 und ebenfalls Verfasser christlicher Schriften, sollte nicht mit ihm verwechselt werden. "ARNOBIUS (called Afer, and sometimes " the Elder "), early Christian writer, was a teacher of rhetoric at Sicca Venerea in proconsular Africa during the reign of Diocletian. His conversion to Christianity is said by Jerome to have been occasioned by a dream; and the same writer adds that the bishop to whom Arnobius applied distrusted his professions, and asked some proof of them, and that the treatise Adversus Genies was composed for this purpose. But this story seems rather improbable; for Arnobius speaks contemptuously of dreams, and besides, his work bears no traces of having been written in a short time, or of having been revised by a Christian bishop. From internal evidence (bk. iv. 36) the time of composition may be fixed at about A.D. 303. Nothing further is known of the life of Arnobius. He is said to have been the author of a work on rhetoric, which, however, has not been preserved. His great treatise, in seven books, Adversus Genies (or Nations), on account of which he takes rank as a Christian apologist, appears to have been occasioned by a desire to answer the complaint then brought against the Christians, that the prevalent calamities and disasters were due to their impiety and had come upon men since the establishment of their religion. In the first book Arnobius carefully discusses this complaint; he shows that the allegation of greater calamities having come upon men since the Christian era is false; and that, even if it were true, it could by no means be attributed to the Christians. He skilfully contends that Christians who worship the self-existent God cannot justly be called less religious than those who worship subordinate deities, and concludes by vindicating the Godhead of Christ. In the second book Arnobius digresses into a long discussion on the soul, which he does not think is of divine origin, and which he scarcely believes to be immortal. He even says that a belief in the soul's immortality would tend to remove moral restraint, and have a pre-judicial effect on human life. In the concluding chapters he answers the objections drawn from the recent origin of Christianity. Books iii., iv. and v. contain a violent attack on the heathen mythology, in which he narrates with powerful sarcasm the scandalous chronicles of the gods, and contrasts with their grossness and immorality the pure and holy worship of the Christian. These books are valuable as a repertory of mythological stories. Books vi. and vii. ably handle the questions of sacrifices and worship of images. The confusion of the final chapter points to some interruption. The work of Arnobius appears to have been written when he was a recent convert, for he does not possess a very extensive knowledge of Scripture. He knows nothing of the Old Testament, and only the life of Christ in the New, while he does not quote directly from the Gospels. He is also at fault in regard to. the Jewish sects. He was much influenced by Lucretius and had read Plato. His statements concerning Greek and Roman mythology are based respectively on the Protrepticus of Clement of Alexandria, and on Antistius Labeo, who belonged to the preceding generation and attempted to restore Neoplatonism. There are some pleasing passages in Arnobius, but on the whole he is a tumid and a tedious author." ex: Online Encyclopedia Zum Exlibris: Das gelehrte Hannover oder Lexikon von Schriftstellern ...

        Leviathan, or, The Matter, Forme, & Power of a Common-wealth Ecclesiasticall and Civill

      London: Andrew Crooke, 1651. First issue, with "head" ornament (rather than "bear") on letterpress title page, additional engraved title, and folding table. Wing 2246. Pforzheimer 491. Macdonald & Hargreaves 42. Folio, bound in full brown calf, gilt titles and tooling to the spine, red morocco spine label, raised bands. In near fine condition with some of the usual browning to the page edges, small paper repair. A very nice example of this highspot. Leviathan ranks as a classic western work on statecraft comparable to Machiavelli's The Prince. Written during the English Civil War (1642?-1651), Leviathan argues for a social contract and rule by an absolute sovereign. Hobbes wrote that civil war and the brute situation of a state of nature. "This book produced a fermentation in English thought not surpassed until the advent of Darwinism. Its importance may be gauged by the long list of assailants it aroused. It was placed on the Index Librorum Prohibitorum 7 May 1703, though all Hobbes's works had previously been condemned in toto, and it still remains a model of vigorous exposition, unsurpassed in the language" (Pforzheimer). "Hobbes had a fundamentally pessimistic view of human nature… [which] had a powerful influence on the framers of the [American] Constitution… During the early years of the Revolutionary period, American leaders found Locke's revolutionary compact ideas more useful than Hobbes' view of the unlimited authority of the state. But as the political and social experience of the 1780s seemed to bear out Hobbes's pessimistic view that men are essentially self-interested, the Hobbesian outlook became more relevant. When John Adams wrote that 'he who would found a state, and make proper laws for the government of it, must presume that all men are bad by nature,' he was expressing an idea that was derived at once from Hobbes" (Lutz & Warden, A Covenanted People, 38).
