        L'arte di ben maneggiare la Spada. Novamente riveduta, e corretta dal medesimo autore, divisa in due parti con l'aggiunta dello Spadone. In Padova, per Sebastiano Sardi, MDCLIII (1653)

      Sardi, Sebastiano, 1653. 2 parti in 1 vol. in-8 oblungo, pp. (16, compresi tit. inc., armi e ritratto del Vidman cui l'opera è dedicata), 168, e 35 tav. (num. 1-19, 21-31, 33-37, ma la numerazione e la segnatura delle pp. risultano continue); leg. moderna in p. pelle, titolo oro al dorso. Splendido titolo inciso entro trofei d'armi. Seconda edizione del trattato dell'Alfieri apparso nel 1640 con il titolo ''La scherma'', una delle migliori opere della bibliografia schermistica. Le 35 figure incise in rame richiamano la maniera viva ed elegante di Callot e sono nettamente superiori a quelle di altre opere dell'epoca. L'Alfieri ''nacque a Padova ove fu, dopo B.Tagliaferro, celebrato maestro d'armi.. fu rappresentante insigne della scuola schermistica italiana.'' (D.B.I., II, 269). La presente edizione è del tutto uguale a quella del 1640; il trattato dedicato alla spada a due mani, lo spadone appunto, che è annunciato nel titolo, apparve in realtà a sé con frontespizio separato. Esemplare molto marginoso e fresco. "Alfieri is also the author of works on the management of the pike and the two-handed sword (spadone), and of a very curious one on the effective display and flying of banners".

        THE JEWEL HOUSE OF ART AND NATURE:

      London, printed by Elizabeth Alsop, 1653.. Containing Divers Rare and Profitable Inventions, together with sundry new Experiments in in (sic) the Art of Husbandry. With Divers Chymical Conclusions concerning the Art of Distillation, and the rare practices and uses thereof. . Wherunto is added, A rare and excellent Discourse of Minerals, Stones, Gums, and Rosins (sic); with the vertues and use thereof. By D.B. Gent. Believed to be the third edition 1653 (first published in 1594, then reissued by Bernard Alsop and Elizabeth Alsop also in 1653 ), 8vo, approximately 190 x 130 mm, 7½ x 5 inches, 18 woodcuts in the text, pages: (8), 232, Collation: A-Z4, Aa-Gg4, bound in later half calf over marbled boards, rebacked to style with raised bands and previous gilt lettered red morocco label, previous endpapers retained. Marbled paper rubbed and discoloured, corners slightly worn, 1 with tiny repair, armorial bookplate on front pastedown, (John Bolton), title page slightly browned, outer corner tips missing, neat old paper repair to fore-edge, crease across middle, small light brown stain to A2 and very small neat repair to upper corner, occasional light age-browning, occasional small stain, no loss, closed tear to text on K3, expertly repaired with no loss, small tears with slight loss to 2 margins, neatly repaired, no loss of text, 1 word crossed through with neat correction above it, rear endpaper has later manuscript recipe, 10 lines in old ink, for a drink used in the East Indies. A good tight copy. Containing recipes and notes on manures, brewing, mnemonics, moulding and casting of metals, distilling (especially of essential oils), fishing etc., and with a description of his mechanical inventions. Trevor Hall states that this is the third book in English to contain conjuring tricks (page 208, Old Conjuring Books): 'As the author is chiefly remembered as a writer on agriculture it is curious that in the first section a number of conjuring tricks are described and The Art of Memorie'. See Toole Stott, A Bibliography of English Conjuring Books, 1581-1876, Volume I page 190, No. 572. Though mentioned in the conjuring bibliographies there are very few obvious conjuring tricks: "A Perspective ring that will discover all the cards that are neareth him that weareth it on his finger", how to hold a hot iron bar without burning one's flesh, secret of invisible ink.

Der mit Abstand prominenteste Eintrag stammt von dem schlesischen Dichter Friedrich Frh. von Logau (1604-1655; dat. Brieg, 19. III. 1653, 1 S.): "Wer nicht bey den schlauen Höfen allen Köpfen weiß zu kommen, Der hat selbsten nicht nach Hofe, was von Kopfe mit genommen. Hingegen. Wer da bey den schlauen Höfen jedem Kopfe weiß zu kommen, Der hat zwar den Kopf nach Hofe, das Gewißen nicht, genommen"; dann folgen eine lateinische Schlußformel, Datum und Unterschrift. - In Letschs Stammbuch haben sich u. a. weiters eingetragen: Aus Berlin der Vorsteher des Joachimsthalschen Gymnasiums, Johann Tornow, der Konrektor dortselbst, Gerson Vechner, der kurbrandenburgische Geheime Rat Otto von Grothe und der Regierungsdirektor für Halberstadt, Raban Frhr. von Canstein; aus Breslau der Philologe Christoph Colerus, die Pädagogen Johannes Fechner, Valentin Kleinwächter, Elias Major und Wolfgang Stirius, die Theologen Adam Etzler, Michael Hermann, Georg Seidel und Ananias Weber sowie der Syndicus Nicolaus Henel von Hennenfeld; aus Brieg der Jurist Heinrich Scholtz, die Mediziner Christian Creutzmann und Daniel Winkler, die Pädagogen David Camerarius, Johannes Gerhardus und Johannes Lucas, die Theologen Johann Gualther Biermann, Christian Lintner, Bartholomäus Schleicher und Abraham Schweitzer sowie der Rat Andreas Lange von Langenau; aus Oels der Hofprediger Christoph Freitag und der Propst Christoph Banner; aus Strehlen der Schulrektor Georg Rudolphus und aus Wittenberg die Mediziner Marcus Banzer (Rektor), Johann Friedrich Hubrig (Student), Jeremias Kurzmann (Student) und Marcus Ruych, die Theologen Augustinus Balthasar, Johann Heinrich Calisius, Abraham Calovius, Johann Dethlaus (Student), Johann Frimel (Student), Christoph Graumüller, Andreas Kunad (Rektor), Johannes Nostitius, Karl Ortlob, Adolf Saubert (Student), Johannes Scharff (Dekan), Elias Ursinus, Friedrich Viccius, Nicolaus Winterberg (Studenten) und Constantin Ziegra (Dekan). - Der aus Münsterberg gebürtige und in Brieg lebende J. C. Letsch besuchte das Gymnasium in Brieg und in Breslau und studierte von 1656 bis 1659 Theologie in Wittenberg. Er wurde 1662 Konrektor in Liegnitz und 1664 Diakon bzw. 1672 Pastor in Brieg. - Logaus Eintragung von größter Seltenheit; nur ein vergleichbares Blatt auf deutschsprachigen Auktionen der vergangenen 30 Jahre. - Etwas gebräunt und fleckig; Bindung gelockert; der Einband mit einigen Wurmlöchern, die Ecken defekt bzw. bestoßen, die Goldprägung etwas verblichen.

See Firth, "The Development of the Study of Seventeenth-Century History" in Transactions of the Royal Historical Society 7 (1913), 27. Lowndes notes that this work was "not very favorable to the character of the monarch," and DNB calls Wilson's work "strongly prejudiced against the rule of the Stuarts (DNB XXI, 553).

        Veduta della Villa di Pratolino, lato meridionale

      1653. Acquaforte, monogrammata in lastra in basso. Foglio 3 della serie di 6 acqueforti che compongono l'intera Veduta della Villa medicea di Pratolino. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con margini, in perfetto stato di conservazione. L'opera fu realizzata dopo la morte di Lorenzo de' Medici (1648), quando Della Bella decise di rientrare a Firenze e qui riprese la sua attività per la corte realizzando anche vedute di ville e altri luoghi medicei. La villa medicea fu fatta edificare da Francesco I de' Medici, tra il 1569 e il 1581, per il soggiorno della sua seconda moglie, Bianca Cappello. Fu poi demolita nel 1822 ma il parco in cui sorgeva fu poi acquistato dalla famiglia russa dei Demidoff che fece trasformare il superstite edificio dell'epoca medicea della Paggeria nell'attuale Villa Demidoff. L'incisione raffigura la facciata sud della Villa. Così Bernardo Sansone Sgrilli nella sua Descrizione della regia villa, fontane et fabriche di Pratolino, del 1742: "Quindi si và in un gran prato detto il prato delle grotte che rigira intorno al palazzo con sederi attorno e due gran piramidi che fanno accompagnatura all altre due sulla ringhiera e dalla parte di levante vi è un giardino che a suo tempo si descriverà. Da detto Prato per mezzo di scale a cordoni si scende nel barco che è pieno di un gran numero di fontane. Sotto a questa scala a cordonivi è una grotta ed all entrare di essa si vede una statua che rappresenta il fiume Mugnone che in vicinanza di questa Villa ha la sua origine e questa figura butta dell acqua in abbondanza dentro a una pila di marmo..." Magnifico esemplare. Etching, monogrammed in the plate at the bottom. Sheet 3 of the series of 6 etchings that make up the entire View of the Villa Medici Pratolino. Magnificent proof, on contemporary laid paper, with margins, in excellent condition. The work was carried out after the death of Lorenzo de 'Medici (1648), when Della Bella decided to return to Florence, where he resumed his work for the court also realizing views of the Medici villas and other places. The Medici villa was built by Francesco I de 'Medici, between 1569 and 1581, for the stay of his second wife, Bianca Cappello. It was later demolished in 1822 but the park in which it stood was later bought by the Russian family of Demidoff who made the surviving building from the turn of the Medici in the current Paggeria Villa Demidoff.

      Typis Sebastiani Sardi, 1653. In - folio (322x220mm), pp (20), 440, (0), legatura coeva in piena pergamena con titolo manoscritto verticalmente in antico al dorso. Impresa calcografica al frontespizio incisa da Giovanni Giorgi con Mercurio che insegue Pan sormontato da cartiglio con motto "Fortasse licebit"; tale motto era quello personale del Liceto, che lo aveva adottato in assonanza con il proprio nome. "Lo stemma rappresenta.. il Tutto della natura, il suo mistero, inseguito dall'uomo "di scienza" (Mercurio). Inseguimento continuo, perché la rappresentazione è quella di Mercurio che insegue senza raggiungere il Dio Pan. Lo stemma è accompagnato dal motto che illustra a mò di rebus il nome di Fortunio Liceti: FORTASSE LICEBIT. Tale assonanza di FORTUNIO LICETI (può darsi che un giorno ... forse sarà lecito...) indica il limite con cui procede il fatto scientifico, legato com'è a condizionamenti interni, storici, materiali, morali. Con il motto FORTASSE LICEBIT si enuncia il senso della misura in tutte le cose" (Aldo Agosto, Lo stemma dei Liceti" in Catalogo della mostra IV Centenario dalla nascita di F. Liceti 1577/1977, Comune di Rapallo, Canessa, 1978). 66 tavole riproducenti cammei con emblemi e simboli incise su rame n.t. dallo stesso Giorgi. Un ritratto del Liceto al proprio scrittoio inciso su rame a p. pag. sempre dal Giorgi (compreso nella numerazione). Iniziali e finalini ornati in xilografia. Dedica a stampa alla Regina Cristina di Svezia. Versi latini preliminari di Felice Osio, Baldassarre Bonifacio, Leone Allacci (quest'ultimo con testo greco a fronte). Timbri antichi di estinta biblioteca francese. Restauri al frontespizio e velature marginali ad alcune pp., bruniture. Sguardie rifatte. Discreto esemplare. Prima e unica edizione di questa singolarissima opera, l'ultima del Liceto, in cui egli prese in esame sessanta gemme incastonate in anelli appartenenti alla collezione di Pietro Stefanoni allo scopo di svelarne i reconditi significati, tracciando un'indagine che finisce per abbracciare il mondo dei simboli e degli emblemi nella loro più ampia accezione. Fortunio Liceto (Rapallo, 1577 - Padova, 1657), medico e filosofo, deve la sua notorietà, oltre che ad un trattato di teratologia ("De Monstris"), all'opuscolo "De motu sanguinis, origineque nervorum" (Udine, 1647), diretto contro le teorie di Harvey.

      Ludovici Regis, Basileæ (Basel) 1653 - Large octavo (8 1/4 x 7"). [16], 1026, [26]pp. Contemporary full vellum with handwritten title in ink on spine. Printer's device to title page. Decorative head-, tailpieces and initials.Buxtorf's "Anticritica" is a rebuke of Louis Cappel's second important work "Critica Sacra" (1650), a book highly controversial from a theological point of view as the author endeavored not only to demonstrate that the Hebrew vowel-points were a novel invention, but also that - based on the various readings in the text and the differences between the ancient versions and the Masoretic text - the integrity of the Hebrew text, as held by Protestants, was intenable.Vellum age-toned, slightly darkened and partly soiled. Ex-library copy, with bookplate on inside of front cover (Sutro Library, San Francisco, California), and previous owner's Ex-Libris on front free endpaper (Wm. R. Blumenthal). Minor to moderate age-toning throughout. A few pages are heavily foxed. Text in Latin. Binding in overall good, interior in good to very good condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Jacob Flesher for William Morden, 1653. Due parti in un volume in 8vo, legatura coeva in piena bazzana, tagli marmorizzati, pp. (16), 199, (1), 173, (1) e 4 carte di tavole a piena pagina, che mostrano le Pleiadi, la cintura di Orione, Presepe e la nebulosa di Orione. Primo frontespizio stampato in rosso e nero. Il testo è inoltre illustrato da vari diagrammi astronomici e da figure che mostrano la supercie della luna come la vide Galileo durante le sue prime osservazioni con il telescopio. Restauro all'angolo inferiore esterno del primo frontespizio senza danno al testo, ma che comporta la perdita della parte finale della nota di possesso: &ldquo,Karolus - Emmanuel de Ros&hellip,&rdquo,. Nel complesso, bellissima copia nella sua prima legatura.PRIMA EDIZIONE di questa raccolta di testi, che comprende la seconda edizione in assoluto dell'Institutio Astronomica di Gassendi, apparsa per la prima volta a Parigi nel 1647, nonché la prima edizione in terra inglese del Sidereus Nuncius (terza edizione in assoluto) e del Dioptrice di Keplero. L'Institutio Astronomica è considerata come il primo manuale moderno di astronomia, comprende tre sezioni dedicate rispettivamente alla teoria delle sfere, alla teoria astronomica e al confronto tra le idee di Brahe e Copernico. Il Dioptrice (prima edizione: Augusta, 1611) contiene la brillante spiegazione di Keplero su come funzioni un telescopio. Infine il Sidereus Nuncius, pubblicato per la prima volta a Venezia nel 1610 e considerato come il testo fondante dell'astronomia moderna, presenta la scoperta epocale delle fasi lunari e dei satelliti di Giove.&ldquo,Galileo's 'Starry Messenger' contains some of the most important discoveries in scientific literature. Learning in the summer of 1609 that a device for making distant objects seem close and magnified had been brought to Venice from Holland, Galileo soon constructed a spy - glass of his own which he demonstrated to the notables of the Venetian Republic, thus earning a large increase in his salary as professor of mathematics at Padua. Within a few months he had a good telescope, magnifying to 30 diameters, and was in full flood of astronomical observation. Through his telescope Galileo saw the moon as a spherical, solid, mountainous body very like the earth - quite different from the crystalline sphere of conventional philosophy. He saw numberless stars hidden from the naked eye in the constellations and the Milky Way. Above all, he discovered four new 'planets', the satellites of Jupiter that he called (in honor of his patrons at Florence) the Medicean stars. Thus Galileo initiated modern observational astronomy and announced himself as a Copernican&rdquo, (PMM, 113).Wing, G291 (con la virgola alla riga 3 del titolo), Cinti, 128, Riccardi, I, col. 508, Sotheran, I p. 73 (1448).

His exploits are known through the posthumous publication in Lisbon of his memoir "Peregrinacao" (Pilgrimage) in 1614, of which our book is a translation of the French version. In the course of his travels in the Middle and Far East, Pinto visited Ethiopia, the Arabian Sea, China (where he claimed to have been a forced laborer on the Great Wall), India and Japan. He claimed to have been among the first group of Europeans to visit Japan and initiate the Nanban trade period. He also claimed to have introduced the gun there in 1543. It is known that he funded the first Christian church in Japan, after befriending a Catholic missionary and founding member of the Society of Jesus later known as St Francis Xavier. At one time Pinto himself was a Jesuit, though he later left the order. (Wikipedia).

      ches Jean & Daniel Elzevier 1653 12mo (cm. 13,5), 4 cc.nn., 231(1) pp. Legatura coeva in piena pergamena con titolo ms. su tassello cartaceo al ds. Bellâ??esemplare. Willems, 725. Brunet, III, 241. The treatise â??The elements of Lawâ?? was originally written in England and first distributed in manuscript in 1640, just after the dissolution of the Short Parliament. Hobbes was fiercely attacked as a hardline theorist of royal absolutism and, before Parliament reconvened, he left London for Paris, where he stayed for eleven years. Among Hobbesâ??s circle of friends there, centered on Mersenne, was the young Huguenot intellectual Samuel Sorbière, the translator of this work.

A fair copy only of a rare travel book. Travels, voyages and adventures of Ferdinand Mendez Pinto during the years 1537-1558. Fernao Mendes Pinto (c.1509 — 1583) was a Portuguese explorer and writer. His exploits are known through the posthumous publication in Lisbon of his memoir "Peregrinacao" (Pilgrimage) in 1614, of which our book is a translation of the French version. In the course of his travels in the Middle and Far East, Pinto visited Ethiopia, the Arabian Sea, China (where he claimed to have been a forced laborer on the Great Wall), India and Japan. He claimed to have been among the first group of Europeans to visit Japan and initiate the Nanban trade period. He also claimed to have introduced the gun there in 1543. It is known that he funded the first Christian church in Japan, after befriending a Catholic missionary and founding member of the Society of Jesus later known as St Francis Xavier. At one time Pinto himself was a Jesuit, though he later left the order. (Wikipedia). Lowendahl, Volume I, pages 39-40 and 54: "No work about Asia had a greater impact on 17th century European literature than Pinto's account of his adventures in the East."; Cordier, Bibliotheca Sinica, Volume III, 2068; Sotheby's, The Library of the Earls of Macclesfield, Volume 9, 3215.

        Unum necessarium. Or, the doctrine and practice of repentance. Describing the necessities and measures of a strict, a holy, and a Christian life. And rescued from popular errors. [with his] A further explication of the doctrine of originall sin.

      Second edition of the "Unum necessarium," following the first of 1653, followed by the first edition of the "Further Explication." Jeremy Taylor (1613-67), a High Church divine and chaplain to Charles I, was well known as a theologian and one of the school of Caroline Divines who brilliantly systematized Anglican theology in the 17th century. The first of these present works caused him some difficulty, as some of its arguments were widely considered unorthodox and antidoctrinal; the Further Explication was Taylor's attempt to clarify his position. The engraved frontispiece by P. Lombart depicts Jesus in shepherd guise, and is followed by a title-page printed in red and black. An oversized, folding plate shows a contrite heart accompanied by scriptural figures and allegorical images; this is also signed, Lombart. Both works came off the press with incorrect pagination, the latter with apparent page count being thrown significantly off. Provenance: Front pastedown with armorial bookplate of Charles Grave Hudson.
