        Excellent naval content letter written in 1653 at the height of the first Anglo-Dutch war

      "Letter signed ""N. Bourne"", one page, 8.5? x 12.5?, May 6, 1653, Deale [Kent County, England], with the attached integral leaf addressed ""To my worthy friends the Commissioners of ye Navy at their office on Tower Hill, London"".

Our fleete yt of them (at least) being within Shott of them & both yr sides firing upon each other.

It was fought entirely at sea between the navies of the Commonwealth of England and the United Provinces of the Netherlands. Caused by disputes over trade, the war began with English attacks on Dutch merchant shipping, but expanded to vast fleet actions. The English Navy gained control of the seas around England, and forced the Dutch to accept an English monopoly on trade with England and English colonies."

        Le Pastissier François; ou est ensigné la maniere de faire toute sorte de Pastisserie, tres-vule à toutes personnes

      Paris: Jean Gaillard, 1653. First Edition. Hardcover (Vellum). Good Condition. Later full vellum, discolored, mild wear. Scattered foxing and staining, old bookplate to pastedown, a few pen notes to lower margin, last pages with a series of small tears with loss obscuring a few letters, last table page with a few tears and an old repair. With a manuscript bibliographical entry pasted to the free endpaper, and the rear endpapers filled with bibliographical notes, largely concerning the famously expensive and rare 1655 Elzevier edition. Lacking the final two pages of the table at rear, but otherwise complete. (ii), 233, (iii of v). Cagle 266, Oberle 81 (the 1655 Elzevier), Vicaire 502 (questioning the attribution to La Varenne). Often attributed to La Varenne (later editions were bound with Le Cuisinier under the title "L'ecole des ragoust"), but not definitively, it is, in either case, the first modern French cookery book of its sort and, partly due to the 19th century mania over the Elzevier edition, perhaps more famous than the 1651 Cuisinier. This edition, the first, is substantially rare than even the Elzevier (which Oberle half jokingly calls "le merle blanc!"). In the Pastissier you start to see for the first time, nearly the full range of pastry ingredients laid out and some discussion of weights and measures. The first really recognizable cakes, clarified butter, rissoles - it also includes an impressive array of egg recipes. Size: 8vo (octavo). Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilo.

        An Humble Apologie for Learning and Learned Men,

      - First (and only) Edition, viii, 263, [1]pp, 8vo, a good copy in recent panelled calf old style, London, T.M. for M.M., G. Bedell and T. Collins, 1653. Wing W.1048. Madan, Oxford Books, A Bibliography of Printed Works Relating to The University and City of Oxford, III, p.23 (item 2212): "Chiefly an appeal [for learning] on general grounds, but there is an historical section on pp.43-72." Edward Waterhouse (1619-1670) was educated at Cambridge University but spent some years at Oxford in order to pursue his studies in the Bodleian Library. He later moved to Sion College London and it was during this period that he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society; eventually he became a preacher.Waterhouse's Humble Apologie for Learning and Learned Men was his first work. "My emulation is to propose Learning & Learned Men, as the Horsemen and Chariots of any Nation, and to discover that without them a People can expect nothing but Barbarity and Bestial Vulpinariness. the More men are sunk in ignorance, and estranged from Arts and Sciences, the nearer come they to the life of Beasts and Savages: for unless the power of the mind, by which we are distinguished from Brutes, be by liberal sciences ordered and modified, all their virtue and nobility will degenerate into not only a likeness to, but into a degree of rudeness beyond beasts" (p.7) Waterhouse gives a survey of learning in Britain from the earliest times to his present, listing the colleges of the two Universities (Oxford and Cambridge) and giving historical notes (p.67ff). He goes on to defend the university and the scholar, particularly against the charges of unmanliness:"It is a vanity for men to hope to manage war well without learning, or Conduct from learned men, as grosse an one as for a blind man to boast of discerning the least imaginable Atom, without Organ or Medium thereto. I know there are many conclusive, that books Effeminate the mind, and by a kind of softness so Incandorate it, that no good look is reserved for Manly Acts. But this is rather a Calumny, than a just Charge on Learning. Experience tells us, that the greatest Actors and Actions that have ever been on this stage of earth performed, have been by learned men." (p.126). Photograph available on request.

        Der wunder-würdige Juden- und Heiden-Tempel, darinn derselben Gottes- und Götzendienst, eröffnet und gezeigt wird ...Nuremberg, Wolfgang Moritz Endter (printed by Johann Ernst Adelbulner), 1717. 8vo. With double-page engraved frontispiece and 71 engraved plates (10 folding). 19th-century vellum.

      Alden & Landis 717/132; Sabin 73324; cf. Faber du Faur 587 (first ed.). Second edition of David Nerreter's German translation of Ross's Pansebeia, or, A view of all the religions in the world (1653), augmented with numerous notes and an essay on "idolatry" by the translator. Ross had written his survey of the world's religions to demonstrate the truth of Christianity and to counteract atheism; Netterer's primarily goal appears to have been to warn his readers against the "work of Satan", as he saw religions other than Christianity. The result, though, is a detailed comparative study of religion, treating not only Judaism, Islam and Christianity, but also the religions of the Phoenicians, the Babylonians, the Egyptians, the American Indians, the Japanese, the Chinese, etc. Divided into five sections ("Abtheilungen"), it opens with a description of Judaism, followed by accounts of the religions of Asia, Africa and America, Europe and Germany, concluding with Nerreter's essay "Ursprung der Abgötterey". The many illustrations, showing deities and religious rituals, betray a remarkable fascination with violence and (human) sacrifice.Somewhat browned throughout and with margins trimmed, occasionally shaving part of a plate number or just touching a shoulder note, otherwise in very good condition. A well-illustrated account of world religions.

De Auctionibus Libri Duo: Quorum Prior Venditiones, Posterior Locationes Quae sub Hasta Fiunt Exequitur: Adjecto Passim Voluntariarum Auctionum Jure. Utrecht: Typus Johannis a Waesberge, 1653. [viii], 465, [32] pp. Quarto (7-1/2" x 6"). Contemporary calf, gilt spine with raised bands, edges rouged. A few minor scuffs to boards, some rubbing to extremities with minor chipping to spine ends, corners bumped and somewhat worn, boards slightly bowed. Title page with large woodcut device printed in red and black, woodcut decorated initials. Some toning to text, internally clean. A nice copy. * First edition. This is one of the earliest and most extensive legal works on auctions under roman and Roman-Dutch law. Among other topics, it addresses the rules governing auctions, judicial sales, public contracts and the sale of confiscated merchandise. Matthaeus was a jurist, professor of law at the University of Utrecht and the author of the influential treatise De Criminibus (1644). A leader of the Dutch Elegant School of jurists and, to quote Wessels, "a consummate Roman lawyer and a great student of antiquity," his work was renowned for its erudition, literary quality and philological sophistication. He remains an important authority on Roman-Dutch law. OCLC locates 7 copies of this edition in North America, 5 in Law School Libraries. Wessels, History of Roman-Dutch Law 296.

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.

      - Lyon, P. Borde, L. Arnaud & C. Rigaud. 1653. 2 volumes. Folio (360 x 235mm). pp. (8), 960, (36); (120), 758, (30), with 2752 woodcuts. Contemporary calf, richly gilt decorated spines in 6 compartments. The second and last French edition of Dalechamp's famous herbal. The first Latin edition was published 1586-87 followed in 1615 by the first French edition. The present edition is the most complete one in the French language. "Dalechamp is considered by some authorities to have been one of the most erudite of the French botanists of the 16th century. His book is a compilation of the botanical knowledge available at that date, and is important as it shows another grouping attemp at a classification of the plants which he described. A number of woodcuts were especially made for the book from plants sent to the author by Lobel, l'Ecluse, and others, but for the most part were taken from previously published works" (Hunt 154). Dalechamp was a student of Rondelet and among his regular correspondents were Conrad Gesner, Joseph Justus Scaliger, Robert Constantin and Jean Fernel.First two leaves of each volumes have the outer margins somewhat browned, else a fine copy.Nissen BBI, 447.

Sennert "glaubte sowohl an die Verwandlung der Metalle als auch an die Notwendigkeit der Astrologie in der Medizin; ein Universalheilmittel jedoch wie den Alkahest des Paracelsus und anderer lehnte er ab" (B.). - II: VD 17 12:185471G; Ferguson II, 371; Hirsch V, 230; nicht bei Krivatsy. - Das Werk ist eine der frühesten Monographien über Arthritis und in der hier vorliegenden 2. Ausgabe eine der großen Seltenheiten in der Medizinliteratur des 17. Jahrhunderts, ebenso rar wie die 1631 erschienene EA. - III: Seltene erste Ausgabe. - VD 17 23:000258T; Krivatsy 10945; Waller 8861. - Die nachgelassene Schrift über Erarbeitung und Idee der Medizin sowie mit den Paralipomena zu seinen Hauptwerken Institutionum medicinae libri, Practicae medicinae libri, De febribus libri, De chymicorum cum Aristotelicis et Galenicis consensu ac dissensu liber, Epitome naturalis scientiae, Physica hypomnemata etc. - Zwischen "De chymicorum" und "De arthritide" Teilstück eines nicht vollständigen Werkes desselben Verfassers zwischengebunden. - Daniel Sennert (1572-1637) aus Breslau, Prof. in Wittenberg und kurfürstlicher Leibarzt, trat für einen Ausgleich der paracelsischen mit der aristotelisch-galenischen Medizin ein. Er gehörte zu den Wegbereitern der Chemiatrie. - Sehr gut erhalten, die Paralipomena unterschiedlich, teils auch stärker gebräunt, die anderen Werke nur gelegentlich gebräunt oder gering stockfleckig.

        Institutio Astronomica, juxta hypotheses tam Veterum quam Recentiorum, cui accesserunt Galileo Galilei Nuntius Siderius et Johannis Kepleri Dioptrice. secunda editi priori correctior / [Galileo Galilei - Sidereus Nuncius / Johannes Kepler - Dioptrice]

      Jacob Flesher for William Morden, London 1653 - Institutio Astronomica, juxta hypotheses tam Veterum quam Recentiorum, cui accesserunt Galileo Galilei Nuntius Siderius et Johannis Kepleri Dioptrice. secunda editi priori correctior. London: Jacob Flesher for William Morden, 1653. 3 parts in one volume. 8vo (177 x 112 mm). General title printed in black and red (some paper repairs) with separate title-pages for each part, numerous text woodcuts and 4 plates of constellations in Sidereus Nuncius. Full calf binding skillfully rebacked retaining the early 18th century blind-ruled boards. Text browned, very minor spotting, few underlinings in text, otherwise clean. Good copy. ---- Carli-Favaro 52 (241); Cinti 301 (155); De Caro 82; Wing G291A, Houzeau-L. 9225; Caspar, Kepler 92. - SECOND EDITION OF THIS IMPORTANT COLLECTION OF SCIENTIFIC WRITINGS (first edition of the collection in this form and 2nd edition of the Institutio Astronomica overall). Gassendi's Institutio astronomica, first published in 1647, outlines the various competing models of the cosmos, notably the Ptolemaic, the Copernican, and the intermediate system invented by Tycho Brahe. This is followed by Galileo's Sidereus nuncius, in which he outlined his observations made by telescope; first published in 1610, this constitutes the third edition of this seminal work. The volume is completed by Kepler's Dioptrice, first published in 1611, which is an effective companion piece to the Sidereus nuncius: Kepler had been researching optics since 1600 but it was the publication of Galileo's work which spurred him to complete his treatise on lenses. It contains the first explanation of myopia and the first design for an inverted astronomical telescope. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
