CLUVER, Philipp
I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Philipp Clüver was a 16th-century German geographer known for his modernistic views on history and geography. He composed many works on various historical eras including Roman times, antiquities of Sicily, Sardinia, and Corsica, and described his findings on his voyages to Britain, Hungary, and Poland. However, his most prized work was 'Introduction in Universal Geography' in which he discusses important aspects of navigation and geography. According to Fuson, 'Introductionis in Universam Geographiam' is "the first comprehensive modern geography" and would become the standard in geographical textbooks. This 1651 Elzevier edition features folding charts and plates on distance measures, climate zones, oceans, winds, and zodiac and star charts. Edition includes illustrated title page, typical of Elzevier printings. [Attributes: First Edition]

BAYLY, Thomas
1651 English Civil War Charles I Certamen Religiosum Royalist Bayly Cartwright An important work on the English Civil War and the struggles between Protestants and Catholics under Charles I England. In 1649, Thomas Bayly, a Royalist of the Church of England, defended Charles I against allegations that he had converted to Catholicism. Bayly’s defense was recorded in his book ‘Certamen Religiosum’ in which he reported the discussions between the late king and Henry Somerset. This book became highly controversial, so much so that it drew the attention of Protestants and Calvinists who had been loyal to Charles during his Protestant years. Christopher Cartwright responded to Bayly’s work with his own accusations in which he claimed Bayly ‘gave a false report favorable to the Catholic Church.’ (ESTC). This 1651 edition of ‘Certament Religiosum’ features the Cartwright response, printed in 1652.

ACUPUNCTURE & MOXIBUSTION SCROLL
This attractive scroll begins with three large figures of the human body - front, rear, and side views - with locations of acupuncture points (red dots) and moxibustion locations (black dots). Each of the acupuncture pressure points are labeled in manuscript with their names. The moxibustion points are also labelled but with notes giving their locations. The three images are delicately painted with flesh colors and black hair. The anterior view depicts the 21 bones of the spine. Many of these are numbered with references to specific organs. Again, pressure points are displayed. These illustrations are derived from the Ling-shu [the "Vital Axis"], a rare collection of dissertations on moxibustion and acupuncture, written in about the second century BCE, which "formed [along with the Su Wen] the theoretical basis of classical Chinese medicine…the Ling-shu…discusses mainly therapy - mostly centered on medicinal prescriptions, but also including physical therapies such as bonesetting and breathing exercises, and stimulation treatments such as acupuncture, moxibustion and massage."-Sugimoto & Swain, Science & Culture in Traditional Japan, p. 85. This is followed by a view of the five organs and six intestines, all color coded (lung is white, heart is red, liver is green, spleen is yellow, and kidney is black).

Engraved title-page (and printed). (60),420,(1) pp. and 20 engraved plates. Pastedown inside frontcover a bit soiled. Front-free endpaper with some calculations in old hand. Old name in lower right corner of title-page partly erased. A small faint brownspot in upper margin of the first leaves. A few leaves with faint brownspots, otherwise fine and clean. The plates having a brownspot in upper left corners, but outside image. ¶ Second French edition (translated from the first edition (Latin) of "Principia philosophiae", 1644 by L'Abbe Picot). Descartes here published his general system of epistemology and physics - including his Vortice-theory, the impossibility of a vacuum, etc. - with its Copernicanism mitigated by the idea that all motion is relative.In Descartes's letter prefaced to this French translation of the Principles, he writes that two, and only two, conditions determined whether the first principles proposed could be accepted as true: "First they must be so clear and evident that the mind of man cannot doubt their truth when it attentively applies itself to consider them"; and secondly, everything else must be deducible from them. But he went on to admit,"It is really only God alone who has perfect wisdom, that is to say, who has a complete knowledge of the truth of all things." Brunet II:611.

Graswinckel, Dirck
Leiden, Elsevier, 1651. Folio (295 x 312 mm). (12), 203, (1), 175, (1) pp. Contemporary half vellum over marbled boards. First and only printing. A treatise on the economy of the grain trade, one of the principal economic works of the 17th century. According to Van Rees, it contains "many pages whose content would have done honour to the writings of Turgot or Adam Smith". The first part collects all regulations concerning the grain trade in the Netherlands from 1501 to 1634. It is printed in double columns, with the text of the regulations and Graswinckel's Latin translation. The second part contains Graswinckel's commentary on the grain trade, with marginal notes in Latin. Graswinckel (1600-66) regarded agriculture as the country's principal source of wealth. He advocated free grain trade and high prices for agricultural products, wishing export restrictions to be kept to a minimum. He also fought other obstacles to free trade, such as prohibitions on buying future harvest (pre-purchase) and on sales without immediate delivery. Also, he proved shrewdly to have understood the causes of the 17th century grain price increase, which he linked to the influx of gold and silver from the West Indies. Schumpeter notes that while Graswinckel's insights were not new in 1651, he had a better understanding of the underlying price mechanisms, and that many would place him (with his contemporary Pieter de la Court) above his English contemporaries on the basis of his liberal views on domestic and foreign trade, finding that both writers should occupy a prominent position in a history of … [Click Below for Full Description]

ESTC T13818 & T13828; Lewis, The English fable: Aesop and literary culture, 1651-1740, p. 149; New Cambridge bibliography of English literature II, col. 498. Attractively bound first editions of the two series of fables written by the celebrated English poet and dramatist John Gay (1685-1732). Gay became famous with the present publication of Fables and the opera The beggar's opera. Gay wrote his fables for Prince William, Duke of Cumberland (1721-1765), to whom the first series is dedicated. The dedication is followed by a list of contents, an introduction in the form of a fable, and the 50 fables, all with an engraved illustration. Gay started to write a second series of fables in 1731, a year before his death. The 16 finished fables were posthumously published 7 years later, in 1638. The illustrations, much larger than those of the first series, were engraved after designs by the well-known French engraver and illustrator Hubert-François Gravelot (1699-1773).Marbled endpaper in first volume detached. Browned, otherwise in very good condition. [Attributes: First Edition]

Camillo Saccenti
La più importante rappresentazione del territorio bolognese, data alle stampe per la prima volta, dal perito pubblico e sopraintendente alle Acque Camillo Saccenti, nel 1651. La carta, in quattro fogli che uniti insime misurano 770x990 mm, è orientata con il nord in alto, con l'orientamento fornito dalla grande rosa dei venti posta in alto a destra. Le distanze sono forniti da una triplice scala miliare in di 3000 pertiche bolognesi e ferraresi e 1800 ravennati, pari rispettivamente a mm. 73, 78 e 70. La carta comprende, oltre al territorio bolognese anche tutto il Ferrarese ed il Ravennate. Descritto molto bene anche il Polesine. Le fonti cartografiche a cui il Saccenti attinse furono le carte di Giovanni Antonio Magini e, per la parte del Polesine, al modello di Giovanni Bonifacio del 1602. La carta ebbe una prima stesura nel 1651, stampata dai torchi di Giuseppe Longhi a Bologna, e successivamente fu aggiornata e ristampata in almeno 4 edizioni prima della fine del secolo. Scrive Roberto Almagià a riguardo: "La carta generale del Bolognese è dedicata al Senato di Bologna e fu stampata per la prima volta nel 1651 a Bologna presso Gioseffo Longhi; ma di questa edizione originale io ho veduto sltanto un esemplare in mediocre stato di conservazione e mal riproducibile. La ristampa dallo stesso rame, della quale ho esaminato tre o quattro esemplari identici, reca l'aggiunta "di nuovo per le mutazioni seguite Ridotta al stato presente 1668" e poi ancora 1684, 1687.

With additional engr. title page (frontispiece), 4 full-page text woodcuts (2 folding) and several smaller woodcuts in the text, as well as 1 folding woodcut plate, latterly backed with cloth. Sumptuous mid-19th-century three quarter morocco binding with gilt spine. Extremely rare and early edition of this great English hippiatric manual, first published in 1615, by one of the earliest western owners of and dealers in Arabian horses. A distinctly modern touch is provided by the small woodcut pointing hands scattered about the margins, denoting new cures and "medicines that are most certaine and approved; and heretofore never published". Gervase (Gervais, Jarvis) Markham, as well as his father Robert, a Nottinghamshire MP and Sheriff, was the owner of valuable horses, and "is said to have imported the first Arab. In a list of Sir Henry Sidney's horses in 1589 'Pied Markham' is entered as having been sold to the French ambassador [and it, or a horse of the same name, may have been given to Markham by Sir Francis Walsingham], and Gervase sold an Arabian horse to James I for £500" (DNB). - Variously browned; occasional corner faults (no loss to text). From the library of Sir Robert Throckmorton, Bt. (1800-62), member of an eminent Anglo-Catholic noble family who sat in the House of Commons from 1831 to 1835 (his bookplate on front pastedown; a later bookplate is opposite on the flyleaf). - Wing M659.

Contemporary mottled calf professionally refurbished (joints and corners repaired, new label to style), decorative gilt spine, marbled edges. Much of gilt rubbed from spine, divisional title to Alberti's "della Pittura" misbound before Alberti general title, old grease stain to engraved title, pale dampstain in gutter of first few gatherings, scattered marginal stains and signs of handling otherwise a very good copy, complete with the medial blank [R4]. Additional engraved title by René Lochon (incorporating a portrait of Leonardo), portrait of Alberti, 73 plates (19 of which are after Nicolas Poussin) in the text (illustrative or diagrammatic), title vignettes, head- and tailpieces and initials. Editio princeps of Leonardo's treatise on painting, also published in a French translation the same year, although that edition did not include the two treatises by Alberti. Brunet gives precedence to this edition in Italian, which is virtually doubled in size by the addition of Alberti's Trattato della pittura and Trattato della statua. Together these texts comprise the foundational practical treatise on Renaissance art. The two editions were the first-ever publications of Leonardo's treatise. The French writer and theorist on art and architecture Fréart de Chambray initiated the project; the French translation is his work. The Italian edition was edited by Raphael Trichet Du Fresne, a numismatist, bibliophile, and curator for the duc d'Orleans. The two editions bear many similarities.

Donne, [John]
Printed by T.M. for Richard Marriot, and are to be sold at his Shop in St Dunstan's Church-yard Fleet-street, London. First edition. Type ornament border on title-page, type ornament head- and tailpieces. [vi], 224 pp., with first blank. A^8 (-A3-7) B-K^12 L^4. 12mo. Izaak Walton's Copy. Izaak Walton's copy of the first edition, signed ("Izaak Walton") on the verso of the blank preceding the title-page, and with his marginal notes on pages 94, 112, 174, and 218 and underlingings, marginal ticks and manicules throughout. The note on page 218 notes "3 prayers used before his sermons." In 1624 Donne became vicar of Walton's parish of St Dunstan-in-the-West, and the two became friends. Following Donne's death in 1631 (Walton may have been beside his friend during his last hours), Walton had some hand in the publication of Donne's works, and he famously memorialized him in print. Walton's Elegy of Donne was first published in the 1635 edition of Donne's Poems, and the Life in the edition of Donne's LXXX Sermons in 1640 and separately in 1658. Donne's Essays in Divinity were written circa 1614-5. Printed here for the first time in 1651 and edited by John Donne the younger, who states in his preface that these pieces "were the voluntary sacrifices of severall hours, when [Donne] had many debates betwixt God and himself, whether he were worthy, and competently learned to enter into Holy Orders." Essayes are often found bound with the Juvenilia of 1652 under the title Paradoxes, Problems, Essayes, Characters (cf. Keynes 45). Keynes supposes that the Essayes were printed, but not iss … [Click Below for Full Description]
