        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.

The documents are chiefly in Dutch, but some are in English, French, or Latin; for example pp. 198-214 contain a draft in English followed by one in Latin "of Articles of Union, Peace and Confederation to be made between the Common-Wealth of England and the States General of the United-Province of the Neitherlands [sic]."Muller notes that this account "chiefly" concerns New-Netherland and that "it contains all the speeches and reports"; Asher adds that the information here is "not to be found in the letters of the Pensionary J. de Witt and other ministers." Provenance: 20th-century bookplate of J.W. Six; later in the collection of Frank Marshall Vanderhoof (American scholar, university librarian, private collector; 1919-2005).

        Demonologie ou Traitte des demons et sorciers: de leur puissance & impuissance, L'antidemon de Mascon, ou Histoire particvliere & tresveritable de ce qu'vn demon a fait & dit à Mascon.

      Chez Pierre Aubert, Geneva 1653 - RARE AND INTERESTING WORK ON DEMONOLOGY FIRST EDITION. 8vo. pp. [xxxii], 233, [xxiii], 78. [par.]-2[par.]?, A-Q?, Aa-Dd?, Ee? (lacking Ee8 blank). Roman letter, some Italic. Floriated woodcut initials, woodcut head and tail-pieces, bookplate of Dr. Maurice Villaret on pastedown. Light age yellowing, very light spotting on title and a few margins. A very good, clean copy in late nineteenth century three-quarter brown morocco over marbled paper boards, signed David, spine with raised bands, gilt title, all edges gilt. First edition of this rare and most interesting work on demonology in general with a highly unusual second part recounting the author’s personal experience of a haunting, or poltergeist, in which he and his household were subject to a series of unremitting attacks from an evil spirit; the work was written by Perrault (or Perreaud) in 1613 but not published until 1653, when he was already 81 years old. It was translated into English and German and reprinted several times. "The Demonologie was not written as a free standing treatise. Its significance therefore derives from its being a preface to L’Antidemon de Macon, a highly personal account of an extended haunting which Perreaud explains by referring to maleficent magic. After describing the poltergeist activity at length, he then informs the reader that some people thought the trouble lay with his wife’s maid who was already suspected of being a witch and came from a suspect family. . His favoured explanation, however, involves a third person altogether. The previous owner (of the house) had had to be dispossessed by judicial judgement in order to make way for the Perreauds, and naturally she was resentful . Perreaud tells us she was discovered one day kneeling beneath the chimney calling upon the devil to do harm to him and his family. Perreaud’s experience, then, reluctantly published so long after the event, provides us with a reminder of seventeenth-century Protestant attitudes towards preternatural phenomena. L’Antidemon along with the prefatory Demonologie, supports traditional Protestant views on possession and witch-craft, for it acknowledges that Satan’s power is real but limited and that his attacks are part of God’s plan for humanity . . Perreaud’s Demonologie, then, neatly summaries the principal lines taken by a Protestant divine when discussing magic, its manifestations in the created world and the way humans may cope with these. The Antidemon which follows gives a particular instance of a preternatural happening and an illustration of how a devout Calvinist family dealt with it. Most significantly, perhaps, while the Demonologie had reiterated orthodox teaching against Satan’s tendency to work through illusion, Perreaud was in no doubt that his ghostly experiences had been real and had been caused by a deliberate operation of maleficent magic. Orthodoxy and experience, it seems, were not necessarily always in agreement." P. G. Maxwell-Stuart. ‘Religion and Superstition in Reformation Europe.’ A very good copy of this extremely rare work from the library of the noted neurologist and collector of early medical books and works on demonology and witchcraft, Dr. Maurice Villaret. BM STC Fr. C17th p. 429, P814. Caillet 8530: "ouvrage curieux et rare, surtout en édition ancienne". Thorndike VIII, 545. Coumont, Demonology and witchcraft P25.1. French [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The jewel house of art and nature: containing divers rare and profitable inventions, together with sundry new experiments in the art of husbandry. With divers chimical conclusions concerning the art of distillation, and the rare practises and uses thereof.

      London: Printed by Bernard Alsop 4to (19.5 cm; 7.75"). [4] ff., 232 pp., illus.. 1653 Formulas, recipes, precious stones, agriculture, and industrial arts are a few of the topics addressed in The Jewell House. First published in 1594, this appears here in its second edition, which curiously has two variants of the title-page, with some spelling differences and each listing a different printer: One listing Elizabeth Alsop, the other Bernard Alsop! Same collation for both "editions." The title-page tells us the work is "Faithfully and familiarly set down, according to the authours own experience. By Sir Hugh Plat of Lincolns Inne, Knight. Wherunto is added, a rare and excellent discourse of minerals, stones, gums, and rosins; with the vertues and use thereof. By D.B. Gent." The DNB online summarized the contents of the work: "The first part lists 103 experiments, ranging from the practical to the fantastic. These include recipes for preserving fruit, flowers, meat, and water, and for a tooth-cleaner; a cheap way to erect a small bridge without the need to place supports in the water; a chafing dish to keep food warm without coals; how to keep garments free from moths; how to dispose of wasps and rats; a cement for mending glasses; and how to know what cards your opponent is holding. The second part deals with soils and manures, the third with distillations, the fourth with moulding and casting metals, and the fifth, entitled ‘An offer of certain new inventions which the author proposes to disclose upon reasonable considerations’, covers a diversity of topics such as the brewing of beer without hops, the preservation of food in hot weather and at sea, mnemonics, and fishing." The Jewel House is illustrated with => a good scattering of engaging in-text woodcuts. 20th-century medium brown calf, plain sides; round spine with raised bands, black spine label, blind-tooled center devices in four compartments. Age-toning, some brittleness to paper; a volume solid, useable, and fascinating.

        Alleggiamento dello Stato di Milano per le imposte, e loro ripartimenti.

      Milano, Nello Reg. Duc. Corte, perGio. Battista, e Giulio Cesare fratelli Maletesta Stampatori, 1653. Folio. In contemporary full vellum. Title written in contemporary hand to lower edge. A few early leaves reinforced and a 1x1 cm hole in leaf pppp2 with loss of text. Ex-libris stamp (Ghislanzoni) to lower part of title-page. Otherwise a very fine, clean and crisp copy. (56), 792, 76 pp. + the engraved frontispiece by Frederico Agnelli.. First edition thus, being the hugely expanded second version of Cavazzi's famous fiscal analysis of the Duchy of Milan and of Lombardy in general (which had been under Spanish rule since 1559, and was to remain so until 1701), constituting one of the earliest proposals of government bonds in (what is now) Italy. Furthermore, the present work was Manzoni's main source of knowledge about the plague when writing 'Promessi Sposi' (The Betrothed).A much shorter preliminary work comprising merely 146 pp. appeared in 1647, under the same title. The present work is hugely expanded and is essentially a different work.Cavazzi here gives a thorough analysis of taxation and the general cost of public administration, which had become an exceedingly important issue for the city of Milan. Over a 25 year period, the debt of Milan had risen to uncontrollable heights and this is the first serious attempt to improve the city's economic status. Cavazzi occupies himself with duties on, among other things, salt, wine, oil, meat, flour, and horses and argues that the tax burden might be reduced through both efficiencies in spending and through raising of funds through the issue of government bonds. His proposal of government bonds predates the actual implementation, which did not happen until 1694 by the Bank of England. He furthermore proposes that the Duchy reduce the number of working licenses granted to foreigners who are not resident and refuse to accept citizenship. Carlo Girolamo Cavazzi della Somaglia (1604-1672), Italian economist and historian, wrote several other work on Milan the present being the most extensive. OCLC records just two copies outside Italy (British library and the University of Illinois).Einaudi 966

        The Voyages and Adventures, of Fernand Mendez Pinto, A Portugal: During his Travels for the space of one and twenty years in the Kingdoms of Ethiopia, China, Tartaria, Cauchin-China, Calaminham, Siam, Pegu, Japan, and a great part of the East-Indiaes. With a Relation and Description of most of the places thereof..

      London: J. Macock, 1653. Some moderate marginal worming at the rear (also affecting the boards a little), gentle preliminary browning; overall an attractive copy.. Small folio, title-page in black and red; contemporary calf, spine sympathetically renewed in period style with raised bands, gilt panels and red morocco label. First English edition: one of the great travel narratives of all time, recounting the experiences of a Portuguese adventurer in the Far East over a period of 21 years. Although Pinto's claims to have been the first European to set foot on Japanese soil are erroneous (he was preceded in 1542 by the Portuguese adventurer Diego Zeimoto), he was nonetheless one of the first European visitors to Japan and is known to have visited the islands four times, was a prominent figure in the Jesuit mission to Kyushu during the 1540s, and was a personal friend and patron of St. Francis Xavier, indeed is credited with having financed Xavier's first Jesuit mission to Japan. Born in humble circumstances, Pinto departed Portugal in 1537 in a fleet commanded by the son of Vasco da Gama, and did not return to his homeland until 1558. During this time he traversed vast distances, providing rich first-hand accounts of India, Abyssinia, Malacca, Sumatra, Java, China, Tartary and Burma. By his own accounts he was shipwrecked, enslaved and sold on numerous occasions but invariably survived and even prospered as a merchant soldier in the Far East. Pinto first visited Japan in 1545, landing on an island to the south of Kyushu. Pinto returned to Portugal in 1558 and wrote his Peregrinação as an old man for the benefit of his offspring. The resulting text effectively blends rumour, fantasy and real-life experiences within a single enthralling narrative. First published in Lisbon in 1614 and translated into numerous editions, Pinto's book was understandably treated with suspicion by seventeenth-century readers. However, amidst fantastic descriptions and outright fabrications are rich and detailed first-hand accounts of Asia, making the Peregrinação a historical text of some significance. Henry Cogan, the translator of this first English edition of 1653, pitched his preface to a markedly sceptical audience and appeals to none less that Samuel Purchas as a referee for Pinto's veracity. Cogan boasts that 'the most curious wits, which delight in the reading of rare books, will, I beleeve, find all the satisfaction they can desire in this same of his; where, without so much as stirring out of their Studies, or running the danger of Shipwrack, they may traverse the Seas, view the goodliest Provinces of the World, entertain themselves with stupendous and unheard-of-things, consider in the manner of those people living whom we term Barbarians...' Further prefatory text exceeding four dense pages titled An Apologetical Defence corroborates incredible claims made by Pinto with the testimony of other reputedly sober and authentic authors. This edition is a product of its time, and Cogan elected to omit sections regarding St. Francis Xavier in sympathy with prevalent anti-Catholic prejudice.With the bookplate and tipped label of Hendersyde Park at Kelso.

        The jewel house of art and nature: containing divers rare and profitable inventions, together with sundry new experiments in the art of husbandry. With divers chimical conclusions concerning the art of distillation, and the rare practises and uses thereof.

      London: Printed by Bernard Alsop 4to (19.5 cm; 7.75"). [4] ff., 232 pp., illus.. 1653 Formulas, recipes, precious stones, agriculture, and industrial arts are a few of the topics addressed in The Jewell House. First published in 1594, this appears here in its second edition, which curiously has two variants of the title-page, with some spelling differences and each listing a different printer: One listing Elizabeth Alsop, the other Bernard Alsop! Same collation for both "editions." The title-page tells us the work is "Faithfully and familiarly set down, according to the authours own experience. By Sir Hugh Plat of Lincolns Inne, Knight. Wherunto is added, a rare and excellent discourse of minerals, stones, gums, and rosins; with the vertues and use thereof. By D.B. Gent." The DNB online summarized the contents of the work: "The first part lists 103 experiments, ranging from the practical to the fantastic. These include recipes for preserving fruit, flowers, meat, and water, and for a tooth-cleaner; a cheap way to erect a small bridge without the need to place supports in the water; a chafing dish to keep food warm without coals; how to keep garments free from moths; how to dispose of wasps and rats; a cement for mending glasses; and how to know what cards your opponent is holding. The second part deals with soils and manures, the third with distillations, the fourth with moulding and casting metals, and the fifth, entitled ?'An offer of certain new inventions which the author proposes to disclose upon reasonable considerations?', covers a diversity of topics such as the brewing of beer without hops, the preservation of food in hot weather and at sea, mnemonics, and fishing." The Jewel House is illustrated with => a good scattering of engaging in-text woodcuts. 20th-century medium brown calf, plain sides; round spine with raised bands, black spine label, blind-tooled center devices in four compartments. Age-toning, some brittleness to paper; a volume solid, useable, and fascinating.

        Hieroglyphica, sive Antiqua Schemata Gemmarum Anularium, quaesita Moralia, Politica, Historica, Medica, Philosophica, & Sublimiora, omnigenam eruditionem, & altiorem Sapientiam attingentia, diligenter explicata.

      Typis Sebastiani Sardi,, Patavii, 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.

         Racconto del mio viaggio fatto da Roma all'Indie Orientali Anno 1656[-1663]. [Rome, India and en route between them], 1656-1663. Squarish small 8vo? (15 x 10.5 cm). Manuscript in brown ink on paper, written in a Latin script. Old laminated paper wrappers. .

      Original diary kept by Frater Marcello, one of the Apostolic Commissars sent by Pope Alexander VII to the Malabar coast of southwest India, not principally to convert the infidels, but to promote the union of the ancient Saint Thomas Christians with the Church of Rome. The goal of the mission was a reconciliation of the Saint Thomas Christians of the classical Syriac (Chaldaic) rite, who had rejected their Jesuit archbishop Francis Garcia. The majority had revolted against the archbishop in 1653 and forsaken his authority by taking an oath for the purpose at the foot of a cross situated in Mattancherry, thereafter called the "Coonen Cross". They then appointed their archdeacon archbishop, violating Church polity and effectively seceding from the Roman Church.The diary is very important for the history of the Saint Thomas Christians on the Malabar coast and the conquest of that coast, especially Cochin, by the Dutch fleet under Rijcklof van Goens as it contains many, undoubtedly new details.The manuscript has been trimmed close to the text but with no significant loss. It shows occasional ink stains and sometimes slight browning but remains in good condition. An important primary source for relations between Christian, Muslim and Hindu groups on the Malabar coast in the late 1650s and the 1660s..

WITH A RELATION AND DESCRIPTION OF MOST OF THE PLACES THEREOF

      London, 1653. Large quarto. Contemporary speckled calf, neatly rebacked in matching style, gilt leather label. Outer corners worn. Ink notation to titlepage. Text moderately tanned, seventh leaf reinforced and repaired with tissue. Very good. The extremely rare first English edition of a classic travel narrative, first published in Lisbon in 1614. Mendes Pinto left Portugal in 1537 and did not return until 1558. During that time, Pinto visited Japan four times, claiming to have been the first European to set foot on Japanese soil, in 1543. He gives firsthand accounts of India, Abyssinia, Malacca, Sumatra, Java, China, Tartary and Burma. "Not only an account of his travels but a work of art, which is at once a picture of Asia, a relation of what he did and saw, a summing up of the Portuguese Empire, a vast gallery of portraits, and an encyclopedia of adventure both in the sphere of action and of the spirit" - Maurice Collis.

        Caarte vanden Slaperdijk streckende vande Stichtse bergen tot aan de hoogte van Gelderland.Utrecht, Slaperdijk Managing Board ("College tot Directie van de Slaperdijk"), (engraved:) 1705. Engraved wall map printed on 8 sheets (measuring: 76×194 cm as assembled) by Caspar Specht after Justus van Broeckhuijsen (scale ca. 1:5600). Framed (107×220 cm).

      Deys, Gelderse Vallei 435 & pp. 81-83; Donkersloot-De Vrij 408. Large wall map showing the Slaperdijk (literally: "sleeper dike") in the Dutch region the Gelderse Vallei, running from the Utrechtse Heuvelrug ("Utrecht Hill Ridge") in the south to Fort Daatselaar in the north. The dike was built in 1653 as a backup in case the northern Rhine Dike or Grebbe Dike between Wageningen and Rhenen should break (as depicted in the inset map), which had caused major flooding in the past. When in 1704 the Slaperdijk Managing Board wanted to prevent the illegal cutting of trees they asked the surveyor Justus van Broeckhuijsen (ca. 1670-1724) to make a map they could use as an instrument to enforce the law. The result was an appealing wall map, not only functional in character, but also serving a representative purpose. The present copy appears to be in the first state with the names of the original board members.The two sheets in the upper corners are trimmed off about a centimetre shorter as the two in the middle, likely as issued. There is some minor damage in the upper outer corners from previous mounting and some minor browning, otherwise a very good copy.

Buch 1. Der niederländische Humanist Weidner (1588 - 1655) demaskiert in seinem "Kompendium antihispanischer Vorwürfe" die "Geheimnisse des Spanischen Regiments". Er berichtet über die Greultaten der Inquisition, die Unterdrückung der amerikanischen Urbevölkerung, die Arroganz der Spanier in Portugal, Neapel, Belgien und Catalonien. Das Werk ist eine Reaktion auf die spanische Unterdrückung der Niederlande im dreißigjährigen Krieg. Buch 2. Jacob Bauer verzeichnet in seiner "Bibliotheca Librorum Rariorum" schon 1771 diese Ausgabe des Werkes Malvezzis als "Rarus libellus". Die Erstausgabe dieses Werkes erschien 1635 unter dem Titel "Ritratto del privato politico cristiano". Virgilio Malvezzi (1595 - 1653) geboren in Bologna wird von 1623 bis 26 in den Listen der spanischen Truppen in Italien und Flandern geführt. Anschließend bekleidet er mehrere Jahre einen hohen Posten in Bolognia. Ab etwa 1535 lebt er, auf Einladung des Duque de Olivares in Madrid am Hofe Felipe IV. Er war der erste Biographen weltlicher Personen, der zum ersten Mal "el interior ignorado" (Quevedo, Obras completas p. 1542) das Innere bis dahin ignorierte, miteinbezieht. Nach dem Fall des Olivares kehrt er nach Bologna zurück bearbeitet die Biographien von Coriolano und Alcibiades. 1554 stirbt er. (Agnes Delange, Criticón 2006, 61 ff.) Johan Jespersson Kruuss übersetzte das Werk Malvezzis ins Lateinische und schrieb das ausführliche Vorwort. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Dell'historia della Compagnia di Giesu'. L'Asia descritta dal P. Daniello Bartoli della medesima compagnia. Parte prima

      Stamperia d'Ignatio de' Lazzeri, Roma 1653 - In 4, pp. (4) + 904 + (8). Manca l'antiporta incisa. Bruniture alle cc. Legatura in?p. pg. coeva con mancanza nella parte inferiore del dorso e abrasione del rivestimento ai piatti. Edizione originale del solo primo volume - mancante della tavola - di questa ponderosa opera di Bartoli (il secondo era dedicato alla storia della compagnia in?Giappone, il terzo in?Cina). L'opera vuole sottolineare l'importanza nodale dell'impegno missionario negli obiettivi della Compagnia in relazione anche alle nuove scoperte geografiche. Bartoli si pone un compito storiografico basato sull'esattezza documentaria e insieme apre spazi a nuovi orizzonti in cui alla volonta' evangelizzatrice si uniscono il desiderio dell'avventura e quello del martirio.
