        Le due Aggrippine

      Venetia, Appresso li Guerigli 1652.. kl.-8°. 407 S. Pgmt. d. Zt. Tit am unteren Rand um ca. 1,5 cm. beschnitten. vgl. Hayn-Gotend. IX, 443. - Pallavicino Ferrante, wurde 1615 als Mitglied der alten Adelsfamilie der Pallavicini in Piacenza geboren. Als Verfasser von Satiren und Schmähschriften wurde er 1644 in Avignon von päpstlichen Schergen enthauptet. Unter anderem schmähte er Papst Urban VIII Barberini, jenem Papst der laut Pallavicini Jesus den Bart geschnitten habe (barba). Außerdem schrieb er gegen die Jesuiten, die römische Inquisition, die die Verleger ruinierte, und nicht zuletzt gegen die Spanier, die zu jener Zeit Teile Italiens besetzt hielten. Pallavicino verbrachte sechs Monate im Kerker bevor er entkam. Dennoch setzte er seine Attacken auf den Papst fort. In dieser Zeit verfasste er das anti-jesuitische Werk 'La Retorica delle puttane'. Die 15 Lektionen der alten Hure in seinem Roman beruhten auf jenem Handbuch, daß in Jesuitenschulen in Verwendung war. Das war ein Schritt zu viel gewesen. Abermals musste Pallavicino fliehen. Durch Verrat fiel er den Päpstlichen in Avignon in die Hände. Nach vierzehn Monaten Haft wurde er dort enthauptet.

        THEATRUM CHEMICUM BRITANNICUM. Containing Severall Poeticall Pieces of our Famous English Philosophers, who have Written the Hermetique Mysteries in their Owne Ancient Language. Faithfully Collected into one Volume, with Annotations Thereon. VELLUM EDITION, Limited to 35 Copies Only

      Seattle, Washington: Published by Ouroboros Press, 2011 [actually, 2012]. Limited Edition. Full Vellum. Fine. Stout Octavo, 6 x 9 inches. Full Imperial Vellum, with gilt-stamped spine bands and central ‘grotesque’ ornament to boards, scarlet leather spine label, silk bookmark, hand-marbled endpapers and silk closure ties. 528 pages. Rubricated title page in red and black ink. Illustrated with alchemical engravings, ornamental grotesques, dragons, trees, and fleurons. Includes the 11 x 14 folding plate of George Ripley’s Wheel. A fine copy. The Vellum Bound edition was limited to only 35 copies and was sold out in advance of publication. ¶ The Theatrum Chemicum Britannicum is a major collection of English alchemical texts which encapsulate the arcana of the Magnum Opus in poetic form. Originally gathered from several rare medieval manuscripts by Elias Ashmole, the text represents the largest collection of verse treating of the production of the Philosopher’s Stone to be brought together in one volume. Here we find well known names in the alchemical corpus among whom are included; Thomas Norton, George Ripley, Geoffrey Chaucer, John Daston, Pearce the Black Monke, Richard Carpenter, Abraham Andrews, Thomas Charnock, William Bloomefield, Edward Kelley, John Dee, Thomas Robinson, William Backhouse, John Gower, John Lydgate, W. Redman and several anonymous authors. This who’s who of English alchemists is placed in historical context by a Prolegomena by Ashmole, which supports his thesis that England may be proud of its alchemical literary heritage. In addition Ashmole has provided ample annotations and commentary to each of the texts as supplementary material in the concluding chapter of the book. Originally published in 1652, this new complete edition of the Theatrum Chemicum Britannicum goes beyond the mere reprinting of the original pages as past facsimiles have done. Using the original errata sheets provided by Ashmole, the entire text has been corrected and reset in a more readable typeface and features clear reproductions of the original engravings produced by Robert Vaughan. In addition, this edition features a more complete version of the Breviary of Natrurall Philosophy by Thomas Charnock by employing a complete manuscript of the text not available to Ashmole at the time. The text has a new introduction by William Kiesel and a full bibliography of alchemical and bibliographic materials used in researching the text. A major production.

        The Historie of the World in Five Bookes

      Graies Inn And Furnivalls Inn Gates In Holborne & at the hand and Bible in Duck lane: R Best, Jo Place & Sam Cartwright, 1652 A good copy of an early edition of Ralegh's history, first published circa 1616. Ralegh (circa 1552-1618) wrote the work while imprisoned in the Tower of London - intending it to contain Five Books to bring it up to modern time. He only completed Book I. In early full leather binding with blind stamp to the centre of both boards dated 1688. Complete with 6 double page maps and 2 folding battle plans. With decorative head and tailpieces and initial capitals. Contents: decorative title page placed as a frontispiece; second title page with portrait of Ralegh; Preface - 32pp; Chapter Index 25pp; Book 1 pp1-184; Book 2 pp 181-555. Page numbering restarts with Book 3 pp 1-129; Book 4 pp130-260; Book 5 pp 261-669; Note to the Reader 2pp; Chronological Tables 24pp; Index 24pp. The binding has been repaired at some point - possibly in the 1800's - replacing the spine and adding a newer title label, while retaining the boards. This repair is showing wear at the joints and at the top and bottom of the spine. The boards show wear to corners particularly and to the top edge. Internally the preliminary and end leaves were replaced at the repair; the 2 title pages have been repaired (there was some loss to the second title page); early leaves have some paper repairs (well done); there is some neat scholarly annotation at some points; there are 2 areas of worm damage - one from page 260 in the top margin close to the gutter (this continues for a number of pages - it affects the chapter headings at some points but does prevent the text being read) and one in the outer side margin of pages 371-471 which does not affect text; there is repair to some maps but this has been well done; and some of the page numbering is wrong eg p 512 followed by p 517 but there is no break in the text. Generally the text is clean and in good order. There is occasional marking. Please ask if you would like to see additional images.

        L'Hydrographie ou Description de l'Eau

      Paris,: Chez l'Auteur, 1652.. Handcoloured engraved map, 400 x 545 mm. (plate size), a little rubbed at right-hand margin yet a lovely impression, framed. Stately double-hemisphere map by Nicolas Sanson, cartographer extraordinaire and geographer to Louis XIII. Sanson's principal historical importance lies in his role as a disseminator of knowledge: 'His maps, geographical tables and teaching captured the attention of persons no less eminent than Richelieu, Fouquet, the chancellor Seguier, and Cardinal Mazarin...The regard of such illustrÈs reveals Sanson as an important conduit of geographical knowledge to centres of power in France, which at this time was at its most important period of expansion in Canada, the West Indies, Africa, and the Near East' (Pedley, Imago Mundi 44).As a youth with a Jesuit education, Sanson displayed precocious intelligence and an unusual affinity for mapmaking. These valuable attributes attracted the attention of Cardinal Richelieu, then first minister of the king, who introduced Sanson to the inner circle of Louis XIII. So began a contradictory life of royal patronage and personal poverty. Sanson undertook significant financial and personal risk in coming to Paris and issued over 300 maps in the course of his career. His prodigious output and widespread prestige began a shift in European map production and heralded the end of the Dutch domination of the cartographic market during the seventeenth-century.In its depiction of the antipodes the map is vague and amorphous, demonstrating an indifferent treatment of the Dutch discoveries in Western Australia during the early seventeenth-century. As with so many world maps and globes of the era, the southern hemisphere is dominated by an imagined Terre Australe of vast proportions to offset the landmass of the northern hemisphere.

To arrive at this common basis, he had to reduce dogma to a low level, and his result was generally repudiated." - Wikipedia. Editio novissima. Hardcover. Very Good. 24mo - over 5 - 5¾" tall. Book.

      - ESPELHO DE ENGANOS, THEATRO DE VERDADES, MOSTRADOR DE HORAS MINGUADAS, GAZUA GERAL Dos Reynos de Portugal. OFFERECIDA A EL REY NOSSO SENHOR D. JOAÕ IV. PARA QUE A EMENDE. Composta no anno de 1652. PELO PADRE ANTONIO VIEYRA ZELOSO DA PATRIA. Correcta, e emendada de muitos erros; e assim também a verá o curioso leytor com as palavras, e regras, que por inadvertencia faltaraõ na passada impressaõ. AMSTERDAM, Na Officina De Martinho Schagen. M. DCCXLIV. (1744). In 4.º de 21x16 cm. Com xxi, 508 pags. Encadernação da época inteira de pele com a lombada restaurada. Gravura do Padre António Vieira retratado em 1697. Inocêncio I, 307. "A Arte de Furtar foi prohibida em Hespanha por édito da Inquisição de. de Janeiro de 1755, e ahi se declara ser falsamente attribuida ao P. Antonio Vieira. Passou depois para o corpo dos Indices Expurgatorios do mesmo Tribunal e ainda no ultimo, impresso em Madrid, 1790, a encontro a pag. 277, com a mencionada declaração. Excluida assim a idea de que a obra fosse de Vieira, restava indagar a qual dos escriptores seus contemporaneos poderia attribuir-se com maior verosimilhança. Alguns criticos, tractando este ponto talvez com nimia prudencia, não quizeram arriscar a respeito d’elle uma opinião decisiva. Segundo os autores destes estudos a Arte de Furtar tem sido atribuída aos seguintes literatos: P. António Vieira, João Pinto Ríbeiro por Ferreira Gordo, Diogo de Almeida por Alves Sinval Tomé Pinheiro da Veiga por Cunha Rivara Duarte Ribeiro de Macedo citado por Camilo C. Branco Alexandre de Gusmão por Teófilo Braga, António de Sousa de Macedo por Solidónio Leite. Estas opiniões baseiam-se em conjecturas, aceitáveis umas, e outras refutáveis." "Arte de Furtar, etc. Amsterdam, por Agostinho Schagen 1744. 4.º de 409 pag. A ser verdade o que se lê na advertencia preliminar da edição de Londres (de que tracto em seguida) ha exemplares com indicações identicas, mas que mostram ser de edições diversas. Distinguem-se uns dos outros por terem estes 508 paginas em vez das 409 d’aquelles, sendo de typo mais graudo, linhas menos juntas, e mais incorrecta na orthographia. Não sendo provavel que no mesmo anno se fizessem duas edições da obra, é de suppor que a segunda seja mais moderna que a outra, com quanto no rosto se lhe conservassem data, e nome do impressor copiadas da antecedente. Creio poder asseverar sem receio, que uma d’estas edições, se não ambas, sahiram na realidade da typographia do impressor João Baptista Lerzo, o mesmo que no anno de 1742 reimprimiu em Lisboa o tractado de Manu Regia de Gabriel Pereira de Castro. Pelo menos é facto averiguado, e de que tenho provas, que este impressor vendeu por aquelles tempos, e a diversos individuos, alguns exemplares da Arte de Furtar, em papel, pelo preço de 1:200 réis cada um."

        The workes of Edmund Gunter, containing the description of the sector, cross-staff, and other instruments; with a canon of artificial sines & tangent, &c. Much enlarged by the author. Together with a new treatise of fortification. Whereunto is now added the further use of the quadrant fitted for daily practice. By Sam. Foster late professor of Astronomie in Gresham-Colledge London

      With engraved frontispiece of Gunter's scale, engraved allegorical title, and additional title for Canon triangulorum, or tables of artificiall sines and tangents dated 1652; numerous woodcut text illustrations, diagrams and charts many full-page, woodcut initials, head- and tailpieces. Complete with the 4 slips tipped in, all uncut in their original sheets, including the often-lacking volvelle, The Nocturnall. Contemporary speckled calf, re-backed and re-cornered; signature Pp browned and foxed, otherwise an excellent copy from the library of Frank L. Streeter, with his bookplate. First edition of the collected works of Gunter. Although the title states that this is a third edition, neither STC, Wing, nor NUC record anything earlier; it is most likely that earlier editions of the Canon and the Sector were taken into account. Included is Gunter's first published work, the Canon triangulorum (first printed 1620), which was the first table of trigonometric functions to be published, and which includes at the end The first thousand logarithmes now againe set forth by the author Henrie Briggs. Gunter is widely considered to be one of the inventors of the logarithm, along with Napier (1550-1617) and Gunter's close friend Henry Briggs (1561-1630). Gunter's important descriptions of his ground-breaking instruments as well as his considerable work on surveying figure in the present work.& & Gunter (1581-1626), mathematician and professor of astronomy, was one of the great instrument-makers of the seventeenth century. He made numerous scientific contributions to mathematics, and invented a number of important nautical and surveying instruments including the surveying-chain, a quadrant, a scale, and a simple form of the slide-rule. He was also the first to use the terms cosine, cotangent and cosecant for the sine, tangent and the secant for the complement of an arc. Foster (d. 1652) succeeded Gunter as professor of astronomy at Gresham College. &

A very good copy in an attractive binding. Jean-Pierre Camus (1584-1652) Bishop of Belley from 1609-1628 was a fervent disciple of Saint François de Sales. He was a prolific writer, author of at least 186 works. These include about 30 works of fiction, both novels or romances and short stories. His dark and violent stories, often based on contemporary anecdotes or criminal incidents (he wrote over 1000 such works) were in the tradition of the horrific tales ("histoires tragiques") of Matteo Bandello, popular in France in the late Renaissance and early seventeenth century. His longer works such as Iphegene (Nature's Paradox) show the influence of ancient Greek novels (such as the works of Heliodorus of Emesa and Achilles Tatius), with their scenes of tempests and kidnappings. Much of his fiction has a moralistic intention, showing human folly, the unruliness of passions, the dangers of illicit love, and the saving grace of divine love. Nature's Paradox is referenced by Lowndes, Bibliographer's Manual, page 364. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING.

        Nova Totius Terrarum Orbis Geographica Ac Hydrographica Tabula Autore. N. I. Piscator

      Amsterdam, 1652. No Binding. Very Good. 18 x 22 inches. Superb hand color; excellent condition. Very rare; separately published. One of the most richly embellished, Dutch world maps acquirable today. This artistically ambitious work with vignettes along all four borders depicts 12 Roman Emperors on richly caparisoned horses in the top and bottom. In the four corners are allegorical female figures astride animals symbolizing the continents. In the side panels are city views and illustrations of indigenous peoples, including North American natives. Jerusalem, Rome, Amsterdam, Havana and Mexico City are among the cities depicted. Though geographically similar to Blaeu and Jansson's world maps plotted on the Mercator Projection, Visscher's work provided important updating, notably throughout eastern Canada, including Hudson's Bay, where important explorations are reflected. Also, Tierra del Fuego is more clearly seen here as a distinct landmass, now no longer connected at all to the mythical Southern Continent. Curiously, the St. Lawrence River extends as far as the mid-point of the present-day United States, where it is fed by a lake. The map's engraver is not named but was probably Pieter Goos, who engraved the companion hemispherical world map published a year earlier (Shirley 346) that is in a similar style. Also supporting Goos's involvement in both maps is that the same error, dating the discovery of America 1592/ 1599, is repeated on both maps. In 1666, Goos would produce one of the most beautiful sea atlases of the Dutch period. Shirley 350.

La prima parte è dedicata all'esaltazione della scienza, mentre la seconda concerne il progresso delle scienze: "la sua opera ha vero valore, come di programma, discutibile nelle parti e in certi concetti anche fondamentali, ma fecondo nell'ispirazione, per la costituzione del nuovo sapere nel quale s'esalta il mondo moderno", scrive Ernesto Codignola nella voce dedicata all'opera in Dizion.

I sitt förord berör han bl.a. anledningarna till att han konverterat och det motstånd han mött bland sina landsmän. Meidel hade bl.a. missionerat för kväkarnas sak i Norge 1702 och uppmuntrat i synnerhet "gement folk" att emigrera till Pennsylvania, vilket ledde till hans landsförvisning 1703. Meidel hade 1705 översatt ett arbete av William Penn och lät senare utge översättningar av Robert Barclay, samtliga dessa arbeten trycktes i London

Ur Gustaf Holdo Stråles bibliotek, med hans exlibris, och ur Ericsbergs bibliotek. VD17 23:311817Z. Klemming, Sveriges förhållanden, s. 106. Warmholtz 8305. Av hävd åtnjöt staden Bremen nästan full självständighet gentemot det omgivande ärkestiftet som den formellt tillhörde. När det stod klart att området i Westfaliska freden skulle komma att tillfalla Sverige fruktade man naturligt nog att detta självbestämmande inte skulle komma att respekteras av svenskarna. Man utverkade då ett frihetsbrev av kejsaren, 1646, i vilket Bremens ställning som fri stad formaliserades. Detta senkomna dokument (som lär ska ha kostat Bremens borgerskap en ansenlig summa) erkändes dock inte av Sverige, orsakerna till vilket detaljerat redovisas i denna skrift. Frågan kom att leda till två väpnade konflikter mellan Bremen och Sverige (första och andra Bremiska krigen, 1654 respektive 1666) vilka båda ledde till kompromisser till Sveriges fördel, men där Bremens självständighet trots allt bestod. Hermann Conring (1606-81) var professor i medicin i Helmstad från 1637 och i politik från 1650, och ansågs vara en av sin tids främsta jurister. Han verkade dessutom åren 1650-51 i Sverige som drottning Kristinas livläkare

Hans omfångsrika samlingar manuskript och anteckningar skingrades vid hans död 1731 och hans boksamling såldes några år senare på auktion. Skaralektorn Sven Hof skrev i en artikel om Ullenius manuskriptsamlingar i "Lärda tidningar" 1750 om Ullenius "nyligen auctionerade bibliotheque". Möjligen hölls auktionen i slutet av 1749, då den blott 14-årige Torbern Bergman i december samma år skrivit sitt namn i boken. Den sedermera så berömda naturforskaren Torbern Bergman var inskriven vid Skara gymnasium 1746-52. Där undervisades han både i och vid sidan av skolan av nyss nämnde Sven Hof som, själv vägledd av Olof Celsius i Uppsala, ivrigt uppmuntrade sin elevs intresse för naturvetenskaperna. Bergmans boksamling införlivades med Uppsala universitetsbibliotek efter hans död 1784 och en anteckning på främre pärmens insida ger vid handen att boken sålts från biblioteket som duplett

        Vedute della Chiesa di Pietro in Vaticano, et del Palazzo Papale, ed altri luoghi, disegnate in Roma fuori della porta de Cavalli leggieri, da Israel Silvestro, ed intagliate, dal Medesimo in Pariggi l'anno 1652.

      Parigi, 1652. Incisione in rame all'acquaforte, b/n, cm 30,5 x 78,8 (alla lastra) pi? margini, in alto, al centro, festone con dedica, in basso a sinistra, in lastra e dentro la parte incisa, il nome dell'Autore, in basso a sinistra e sempre in lastra "Avec Privil. du Roy.", lungo il margine bianco e sotto il titolo otto didascalie riportate in francese, italiano e latino. Silvestre Israel (Nancy, 3 agosto, 1621 - Parigi, 11 ottobre 1691), appartenente a una famiglia di artisti francesi, fu disegnatore e incisore. Dopo la morte dei genitori, nel 1631, fu mandato a Parigi con lo zio Israel Henriet, grazie al quale imparer? a disegnare e a incidere; e grazie allo zio conoscer? Callot e Della Bella. Tra il 1638 e il 1641 (si pensa nel 1640), Silvestre compir? un primo viaggio in Italia; un secondo viaggio sar? quello del 1643, un terzo nel 1653. Dopo la seconda visita in Italia vengono pubblicate le "Vues d'Italie (1643 circa). Fu artista fin troppo prolifico, numerosissime sono le sue opere, tant'? che ? quasi impossibile redigerne un inventario completo, avendo egli realizzato circa mille pezzi. Tra queste citiamo: "Vues de Paris et des environs" (1645), "Ports de mer" (1648), "Paysages" (1654), un secondo set di "Vues d'Italie", il "Balletto Reale Noces de T?tis" (1655), Vues de ch?teaux (1658) dedicate a Luigi XIV. Dal 1662; incise lastre per il re: "Course de t?tes et de bagues" (1662), "Plaisirs de l'isle enchant?e" (1664) e "Ch?teaux royaux". Il suo stile fu, all'inizio, piuttosto sciolto, ma a partire dalla pubblicazione delle prime "Vues d'Italie" divenne pi? raffinato e delicato, acquisendo accuratezza e precisione senza essere asciutto; a volte era simile a quello di Jacques Callot o di Stefano della Bella, con i quali ebbe rapporti di amicizia e dei quali ottenne l'esclusiva per la pubblicazione delle lastre. Infatti, mettendo bene a frutto i risultati del lavoro di Henriet, alla sua morte, avvenuta nel 1661, riusc? a ereditarne le lastre e a ottenere il privilegio di stampa e la vendita delle opere di Callot e di Della Bella, escludendo altri stampatori da questa posizione (ottenne le lastre del Callot alla morte dello zio Henriette; di Della Bella nel 1684). La veduta fa probabilmente parte della raccolta delle "Vues d'Italie", in tal caso di quelle relative a Roma e dintorni. Nel rispetto del classico stile dell'autore, essa fonde elementi reali a fantasie pittoriche. Un'accentuata piega centrale e alcuni difetti a margine. Rara. .
