"There were a dozen editions of this popular work over two years: one dated 1650...and the remainder 1651 or 1652" [Wikenheiser]. It is worth noting that the 1650 imprint was published in 1651, due to the use of "the old style of dating, under which the year did not officially begin till 25 March. [Maden]. "This is the work which finally cost Milton his eyesight and which Warton characterized as 'the best apology ever offered for bringing kings ot the block.' In 1660, all copies were ordered to be surrendered and, along with Eikonoklastes, "to be burnt by the common hangman." [Wickenheiser]; This work was commissioned by Parliament during Oliver Cromwell's protectorship of England, and Milton defends the parliamentary party against accusations that the rebels led by Cromwell were guilty of regicide for executing King Charles.; Wickenheiser 2567, Maden 2, Wing M2167, Coleridge 45, Not … [Click Below for Full Description]

Gilbert, William.
Amsterdam: Ludovico [Lowijs] Elzevier, 1651. Quarto. [14], 316, [4] pp. with folding map. Hardcover, bound in early calf, rebacked with red morocco label, edges speckled red, endpapers renewed. Bookplate; prior owner's name on title-page in ink dated 1653 (and crossed-out), occasional pencil notations. Gilbert, William, M.D.,1540-1603, physician and scientist. "He lived on St. Peter's Hill in London, was appointed physician to Queen Elizabeth, and attained considerable practice. He became censor of the College of Physicians in 1581, and was appointed to that office in seven subsequent years. He was treasurer of the college for nine years, and in 1600 was elected president. In that year he published in London 'De Magnete, Magneticisque corporibus, et de Magno Magnete Tellure, Physiologia Nova.' It was the first great physical book published in England, and has fulfilled for its author Dryden's prophecy: 'Gilbert shall live till loadstones cease to draw.' His merit was immediately recognised both in England and on the continent, where he won eulogy from Galileo. Bacon mentions Gilbert with respect in the 'Novum Organum' (ed. Leyden, 1650, pp. 263-5 and elsewhere)." DNB "When the younger William Gilbert collected his half brother's papers for presentation to Prince Henry and eventual publication, he divided them into two sections. The first of these, "Physiologiae nova contra Aristotelem," is an expansion of the cosmology of the "De magnete'; the second, 'Nova meteorolgia contra Arsitotelem," follows the general pattern of Aristotle's 'Meteorolgy'.At the beginning of the "Phys … [Click Below for Full Description]

RANGOUZE (Sieur de).
A Paris, Aux Depens de l'Autheur, 1651. Plein veau, dos à nerfs orné, plats décorés d'un encadrement doré à la Du Seuil (Reliure de l'époque). Très rare recueil de "Lettres Panégyriques" du Sieur de Rangouze, textes à la gloire des principaux personnages de l'Etat et de la Cour, que cet auteur faisait imprimer à ses dépens, pour le diffuser dans des recueils dont la composition variait. La première partie est illustrée d'un portrait de Louis XIV enfant. Elle contient 44 "lettres panégyriques" adressées à des personnalités masculines (le Roy, le Roy d'Angleterre, le Duc de Richelieu, M. de Souza Cotine, ambassadeur du Portugal, le Duc de Roquelaure, le Maréchal d'Hoquincourt, le Marquis de Montauzier, etc.). La seconde partie est illustrée du portrait d'Anne d'Autriche. Elle contient 31 "Lettres Panégyriques" écrites pour des femmes (La Reine, la Duchesse d'Angoulême, la Princesse Anne de Gonzague et de Clèves, Henriette de Lorraine, Abesse du Royal Monastère de Pont-aux-Dames, Mademoiselle de Villeroy, la Comtesse de Frontenac, etc.). Le catalogue de la collection Rothschild décrit un recueil des "lettres panégyriques" de Rangouze semblable, relié en maroquin et ayant appartenu à Mazarin, avec ce commentaire: "Le Sieur de Rangouze semble n'avoir eu d'autre métier que d'adresser des lettres panégyriques à des grands personnages pour obtenir d'eux quelque gratification. Chacune de ces lettres est imprimée séparément, ce qui lui a permis de varier, suivant les destinataires, l'ordre et la composition de ses recueils".

RUSE, Hendrick.
Jähns II, 80; Jordan 3251 & 3252 (5 & 2 copies); Sloos, Warfare 8034 & 8039; STCN (3 & 1 copies). Two important works on fortification, together forming the complete works of the army captain and from 1651 city military engineer of Amsterdam, Hendrick Ruse (1624-1679), the first to attempt to reform and update the tradition of Dutch fortification established during the Eighty Years' War, paving the way for the greatest exponent of the new Dutch fortification, Menno van Coehoorn. Together they contain eight double-page plates with fortification plans (mostly showing details), profiles and perspective views, plus a large folding fortification plan. The title-page illustration, an extremely detailed view of fortifications under construction, not only shows the equipment, directors and workmen, and working methods, but is also a work of art in its own right, reminiscent of Rembrandt or Zeeman.With bookplate. With minor damage to the foot margin of the engraved title-page (it has also left a small stain in the foot margin of the 3 following leaves), but still in very good condition, with only an occasional minor spot and with generous margins (preserving part of one deckle). Two important works in the evolution of Dutch fortification, especially concerning the city of Amsterdam, with etchings of the highest artistic quality.

Rubbing and marking to boards, author name in manuscript to fore-edge Recent endpapers, worming to title-page text, ink ownership inscription to head. The first edition of the only published work of Sir John Borough (d. 1643), antiquary and herald under Charles I.

The work of considerable importance, was reprinted in the 1686 edition of Gerard Malynes' Consuetudo, vel, Lex Mercatoria: or, the Ancient Law-Merchant. ESTC R10587, Wing B6129.. First edition. 12mo.

DUPUY, Pierre [attributed]
Paris: Sebastien & Gabriel Cramoisy, 1651. Third Edition. Leatherbound. Very Good. 32, [10], 220, 223, 192, 2612, [6]p. 39 cm full leather folio with gilt on spine, trim of boards, and square edge. Binding worn, hinges cracking, corners bumped, spine label chipped. Ex-library with bookplates on front pastedown. Some thumbing, minor foxing, large mark on p. 143. Pierre Dupuy (1582-1651) was keeper of the French king's library, a post which allowed him to become acquainted with and copy an enormous mass of unpublished documents. These furnished him with the material for some excellent works, probably including this one. However, this book also bears some relationship to a smaller work by Pierre Pithou (1539-1596), sometimes published under the same title. Whoever compiled it, it remains an important contribution to the history of the relations of church and state in the Middle Ages. The text is written from the Gallican standpoint, i.e. in favour of the rights of the crown in temporal and political matters, which explains the delay in their publication until after Dupuy's death.

Hobbes, Thomas
London: for Andrew Crooke, 1651. First edition of Hobbes's Leviathan, a classic of political philosophy and social contract theory. "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 7th 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). The first edition has the head ornament on the title-page. The bear and triangle ornaments are found on the later editions, which are sometimes mistakenly referred to as later issues. Hobbes's greatest work, Leviathan is the first comprehensive political system produced in England and one of the most important books in the history of political philosophy. Hobbes argued in part that men must give up certain rights by submitting to the state in order to avoid the "solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short" lives resulting from the state of nature's war of all against all. The frontispiece is one of the most famous illustrations in the history of ideas. Hobbes himself designed the etching in collaboration with the French artist Abraham Bosse. It depicts a giant crowned figure towering over the landscape, clutching a sword and a crozier, beneath a quotation from the Book of Job, "Non est potestas Super Terram quae Comparetur ei" (There is no power on earth to be compared to him). The torso and arms of the figure are composed of over three hundred men, all faci … [Click Below for Full Description]

Calf 11 cm (Ref: Willems 1132; Berghman 2090; Rahir 1152; Schweiger 2,564; Brunet 1199/1200; Graesse 4,273; Ebert 12345) (Details: Back ruled blind. Boards with double fillet borders.

Right margin of the title slightly cut short and thumbed) (Note: When the first three books of the only surving work of the Roman poet Marcus Annaeus Lucanus, 39-65 A.D., the epic 'Bellum Civile' or 'Pharsalia', were published in 62 or 63, the emperor Nero was not amused, because it was great poetry, and because it contained eloquent denunciations of tyranny. The epic was on the civil war between Caesar and Pompeius, a war that ended the Roman republic. Lucan soon joined the conspiracy of Piso against Nero, and was forced to commit suicide on its disclosure, spring 65. The remaining books of the Pharsalia, the last, book X being unfinished, were published posthumously after the death of Nero. 'Beginning with the causes of the war between Caesar and Pompey, it carries the story beyond the death of Pompey until it breaks off with Caesar's occupation of Pharos in Egypt. The battle of Pharsalus is related in book 7. (.) All the resources of rhetoric are enlisted to impress the reader; vehement declamation and brilliant epigrammatic utterances (sententiae) are everywhere in evidence.

AUGUSTIN D'HIPPONE.
A Paris, chez la Veuve Jean Camusat et Pierre le Petit, 1651.. in-8. 6 feuillets. 810 pages. 19 feuillets. (19x12,5cm). Plein veau de l'époque. Dos à nerfs orné. Pièce de titre de maroquin rouge. Tranches rouges. Mors fendus ou partiellement fendus. Coiffes manquantes, ainsi que la moitié du caisson inférieur. Plats un peu griffés et frottés. Coins émoussés. Quelques feuillets brunis. Quelques rousseurs et taches. Quelques traces de mouillure claire. Edition peu commune. Oeuvre autobiographique dans laquelle le penseur raconte sa quête de Dieu. Sur le plan théologique et philosophique, Augustin d'Hippone est le principal penseur qui permet au christianisme d'intégrer une partie de l'héritage grec et romain, en généralisant une lecture allégorique des Écritures liée au néoplatonisme. Il incorpore au christianisme une partie de la tradition de force de la République romaine. Il est le penseur le plus influent du monde occidental jusqu'à Thomas d'Aquin qui donne un tour plus aristotélicien au christianisme. Malgré tout, sa pensée conserve une grande influence au 17e siècle, où elle est l'une des sources de la littérature classique française et inspire les théodicées de Malebranche et de Leibniz. Exemplaire assez frais dans une reliure d'époque qui mérite une restauration.

CARTWRIGHT, WILLIAM
CARTWRIGHT, WILLIAM. Comedies, Tragi-Comedies, with other Poems. London: For Humphrey Moseley, 1651. 8vo. Engraved port. by P. Lombart. 5 section titles, with the duplicate leaves U1-3 as usual, blank f4 present, b2 folded and untrimmed to preserve shoulder notes. Modern calf, very skillfully executed in seventeenth-century style. Title and dedication leaf and a few running heads slightly cropped by the binder's knife, and one note to the binder cropped. A very nice, complete copy of a bibliographically confusing book. The Arthur Spingarn copy, rebound, with his bookplate and collation notes laid in. First edition of Cartwright's works, containing both plays and poems. The preliminaries, which occupy over a hundred pages and contain more than fifty commendatory and elegiac poems, are bibliographically confusing due to cancelled and inserted leaves that vary between copies (see Greg for an analysis). This copy collates the same as the Hayward copy except it contains an additional leaf of commendatory verse inserted following a7. The frontispiece portrait of Cartwright in his library is interesting in that it depicts the old custom of placing books on the shelves fore-edge outward. Greg 3:1027; Hayward 104; Wing C-709.

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.
