Francis Ld Bacon, Viscount St Alban
1651. The first edition of this scarce work. Very rare, not seen at auction since 1977. Collated, complete. (ESTC R17340) This work begins with the titular work. Here Bacon writes a short essay with his opinons on Queen Elizabeth. He is greatly in favour of the deceased Queen in this work and speaks of her in a positive light. He examines the religion, foreign policy and paints a general picture of her reign. Interestingly, it was not until James I's reign that Bacon was knighted and it is believed that Elizabeth did not care much for Bacon in court. The rumour that she referred to him as 'the young Lord'Keeper' is just that. This work also speaks much about Elizabeth's father, Henry VIII. Following the titular work are the six following writings. 'With The Apology of Sr Francis Bacon in Certain Imputations concerning the Late Earl of Essex, written to the Right Honorable his very good Lord, the Earl of Devonshire.' 'The Lord Bacon his Leter to the most Illustrious and Most Excellent Prince Charles, Prince of Wales.' 'The Lord Treasurer Burleigh's advice to Queen Elizabeth in matters of religion and state.' Following Burleigh's advice is a poem which, although not stated to this work, is by Sir Henry Wotton. To this work the poem has been titled 'To The Ld Bacon then Falling from Favour.' The Ancient Poetical Tracts of the Sixteenth Century by John Heneage Jesse, and several other sources, state that this poem was actually written by Wotton in reference to the fall of the Earle of Somerset following the murder of Sir Thomas Overbury.

GAY, John.
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]

II, 124 - Toda y Güell 1648 - Wolffheim I, 618.- Erste Ausgabe von Eximenos Hauptwerk, gewidmet Maria Antonia Walburga von Bayern, Kurfürstin von Sachsen, Kunstmäzenin, Komponistin, Opernsängerin, Malerin und Dichterin. Es "zeichnet sich durch die Kühnheit aus, mit der den überkommenen Anschauungen vom Zusammenhang der Musik mit der Mathematik Kampf angesagt wird und selbst die Schriften so namhafter Autoren wie Euler, Tartini, Rameau und d'Alembert angegriffen werden. Der grundlegende Unterschied zwischen der Fundamentalgesetzlichkeit der Mathematik und den musikalischen Regeln, die lediglich Beobachtungsergebnisse sind, wird aufgezeigt. Es genügt, dass der Komp. seinem natürlichen Instinkt folgt; Regeln sind zum Komponieren unnötig. Damit hat Eximeno der Musikanschauung derdeutschen Frühromantik (Herder, Heinse, Wackenroder) vorgearbeitet, wohl ohne von ihr etwas zu wissen." (MGG).- "Obra de gran éxito y estimada. . .

NUYSEMENT (Clovis Hesteau, Sieur de).
Cassellis, typis Jacobi Gentschii, impensis Sebaldi Koehlers, 1651. in-12. 8ff. 212pp. 1f. Demi-veau moderne dans le style de l'époque, dos à nerfs orné. Première Edition Latine, très rare, de cet important ouvrage initialement paru en français en 1621. Il s'agit de la principale œuvre alchimique du poète hermétiste Clovis Hesteau, Sieur de Nuysement (1555-1623), qui s'était pris de passion pour l'alchimie vers la fin de sa vie. Cette traduction imprimée à Cassel fut donnée par Louis Combach (1590-1657), qui avait déjà publié en 1649, dans la même ville, les œuvres du célèbre alchimiste anglais George Ripley (1450-1490). Elle manque à de nombreuses bibliographies spécialisées comme Caillet, Dorbon ou Ferguson, qui n'en possédait qu'une réimpression. A noter que ce dernier attribuait par erreur l'ouvrage à un Jacques de Nuysement, qu'il différenciait à tort de Clovis Hesteau de Nuysement. Traces d'inscriptions sur le titre et dans les marges de quelques feuillets. Petit manque dans le blanc de la page de titre, qui est doublée. Papier fortement bruni.

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]

HELWIG, Christoph
1651. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Christoph Helwig was an early 17th-century German chronologist known for his landmark work 'Theatrum Historicum'. This work, first published in 1609, is an entire chronology of the history of the world beginning with Creation and the lineage of Adam. Short biographical notes and included throughout each 'chart-like' page. Helwig covers church history, use of astrology in pagan and religious circles, Greek, Roman, and Jewish histories, rise and fall of Turkish and Ottoman powers, importance of the Papacy, all with an extensive index through the mid-1600s. Thousands of names are included in this work most of which are featured in the year-by-year chart. An impressive and highly desirable work! [Attributes: First Edition]

Francis Ld Bacon, Viscount St Alban
London: T Newcomb for George Latham, 1651. The first edition of this scarce work. Very rare, not seen at auction since 1977. Collated, complete. (ESTC R17340) This work begins with the titular work. Here Bacon writes a short essay with his opinons on Queen Elizabeth. He is greatly in favour of the deceased Queen in this work and speaks of her in a positive light. He examines the religion, foreign policy and paints a general picture of her reign. Interestingly, it was not until James I's reign that Bacon was knighted and it is believed that Elizabeth did not care much for Bacon in court. The rumour that she referred to him as 'the young Lord'Keeper' is just that. This work also speaks much about Elizabeth's father, Henry VIII. Following the titular work are the six following writings. 'With The Apology of Sr Francis Bacon in Certain Imputations concerning the Late Earl of Essex, written to the Right Honorable his very good Lord, the Earl of Devonshire.' 'The Lord Bacon his Leter to the most Illustrious and Most Excellent Prince Charles, Prince of Wales.' 'The Lord Treasurer Burleigh's advice to Queen Elizabeth in matters of religion and state.' Following Burleigh's advice is a poem which, although not stated to this work, is by Sir Henry Wotton. To this work the poem has been titled 'To The Ld Bacon then Falling from Favour.' The Ancient Poetical Tracts of the Sixteenth Century by John Heneage Jesse, and several other sources, state that this poem was actually written by Wotton in reference to the fall of the Earle of Somerset following the murder of Sir Thomas Overbury.

CLUVER, Philipp
1651. 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.

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.

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.
