        Title in Hebrew, then:] THE FIRST GATE, OR THE OUTWARD DOOR TO THE HOLY TONGUE, OPENED IN ENGLISH. [bound with] THE SECOND GATE, OR THE INNER DOOR TO THE HOLY TONGUE

      Printed by Evan Tyler for Humphrey Robinson, and for G. Sawbridge [1654-55], London - 155 x 98 mm. (6 1/8 x/ 3 3/4"). 9 p.l., 131, [1] pp.; [2] blank leaves; 13 p.l., 551 pp. FIRST EDITION, Second Issue of the first title (with undated title page and with three additional preliminary leaves inserted between A1 and A2); FIRST EDITION of the second title. Attractive burgundy crushed morocco, gilt, by Lewis & Harris of Bath for Brent Gration-Maxfield (stamp-signed on verso of front flyleaf; owner's ex libris stamped in gilt at head of front turn-in), covers with gilt-ruled frame, scrolling cornerpieces, centerpeice of fleuron and small tools; raised bands, spine gilt in compartments with central calligraphic flourish surrounded by small tools, floral cornerpieces, turn-ins with elaborate cresting roll, all edges gilt. Front free endleaf with extensive neatly pencilled bibliographic notations of Gration-Maxfield; verso of last leaf with his pencilled instructions to the binder; title page with early ink ownership inscription of Robert Brooks; blank verso of fourth leaf inscribed in ink "Hannah Colborne / was b[ought]/ Sept 23 : 1721." Wing R-1611 and R-1618. Fore margin of fourth leaf renewed by present binder, one leaf with small burn hole between text lines, occasional short closed marginal tears, rust spots, or minor stains, leaves a bit browned (due to poor paper quality), but a very good copy, generally clean and crisp, and in an unworn decorative binding. This is a 17th century English-Hebrew dictionary and grammar intended to make the ancient and holy language of the Old Testament accessible to every Christian. Robertson (fl. 1651-85) is described by DNB as "a pedagogical revolutionary with an egalitarian message and a passionate and parenthetical style" who stressed "the importance of reducing Hebrew words to their roots, and teaching the language by alphabetical principles rather than by scriptural texts." He was a dedicated teacher who believed that Hebrew was not an arcane and difficult language to master and that almost anyone could learn it without assistance, even females(!). As evidence of this radical belief, he dedicated these works to his student and patroness, Katherine, Lady Ranelagh, sister of the great Robert Boyle. The first work here begins with the Hebrew alphabet, some rules of grammar, and lists of root words. We then jump straight into translation, with Hebrew passages from the Old Testament followed by "Resolutions" (i.e., step-by-step translations) into English. The second work contains a Hebrew-English dictionary with an appendix of root words and derivative nouns, followed by more Hebrew passages and translations. The work concludes with an explanation of more esoteric points, including servile letters and suffixes. The three leaves inserted at the beginning of the work contain testimonials and praise from clergymen, who stress the importance of learning the "original" language of God and man, which will surely be that spoken in heaven for all eternity. The Gration-Maxfield provenance is important in that this collector was fastidious and scholarly beyond all expectation, and anything from his carefully selected and annotated library is guaranteed to be in the very best condition possible.

        An account of Mr. Cawdry?s triplex diatribe concerning superstition, wil-worship, and Christmas festivall.

      Uncommon variant of the first edition, being a "reissue, with cancel title page, of the edition with Richard Davis?s name in imprint" according to ESTC. Hammond was "a celebrated catechism writer" (DNB) and clergyman, called by some the father of English biblical criticism. Cawdrey, a prominent nonconformist, published A Diatribe, against Dr. Hammond on Superstition and Festivals in 1654; the present item was Hammond's response to that attack on three of his early tracts -- including his defense of celebrating Christmas. The dispute between Hammond and Cawdrey lasted four years and produced several publications on both sides. This variant is less common than the Davis imprint of the same year; WorldCat and ESTC locate only six U.S. holdings, one since deaccessioned.

        1654 1st ed Paul Laymann Theologia Moralis Witchcraft Occult Witches EXORCISMS

      Moguntiae : Schonwetter, 1654. - 1654 1st ed Paul Laymann Theologia Moralis Witchcraft Occult Witches EXORCISMS EXTREMELY Rare Jesuit Title / None Found Paul Laymann (1574 – 1635) was an Austrian Jesuit and important moralist. The most important of his thirty-three literary productions is a compendium of moral theology Theologia Moralis in quinque libros partita (Munich, 1625), of which a second and enlarged edition in six volumes appeared in 1626 at the same place. Until the second quarter of the eighteenth century it was edited repeatedly (latest edition, Mainz, 1723), and was extensively used as a textbook in seminaries. We do not find another example of this same printing anywhere else worldwide! However, we do find similar 17th-century printings for sale for over $1,400! This title was the most important production of moral theology during the early 17th-century! It was used extensively as a textbook in seminaries throughout Europe. Laymann makes proposals in this work for milder treatment of those who have been accused of witchcraft. Theologia Moralis is truly a book written in defense against the extreme severity and torture against the accused. Main author: Paul Laymann, Title: Pauli Layman .

        Certaine queries propounded to the most serious consideration of those persons now in power.

      London: Livewell Chapman 4to (18 cm, 7.1"). [2], 14 pp.. 1654 Sole edition. John Spittlehouse was a Fifth Monarchist and determined controversialist who supported Cromwell until concluding that Cromwell was not, in fact, the new Moses. Here the author uses a great many capital letters and Biblical quotations to argue in favor of the dissolution of Parliament and against maintaining a standing army, since the army had taken to apostasy and hypocrisy. (Spittlehouse also wrote The Army Vindicated, in their Late Dissolution of the Parliament; his postscript here notes that his position on the army had changed since the publication of that pamphlet.) ESTC and WorldCat locate only six U.S. institutional holdings of this item. Later plain paper wrappers, spine reinforced with cloth tape. Title-page, first text page, and two other pages institutionally pressure-stamped; first text page with inked annotation in inner margin and numeral in lower margin.

      Breslau, Gottfried Gründer für Caspar Klostermann, (1654). - Erste vollständige Ausgabe der Sinngedichte mit 3553 Nummern. Die Teilveröffentlichung von 1638, die Logau die Aufnahme in die Fruchtbringende Gesellschaft eintrug, enthielt nur 200 Epigramme. "Zeit seines Lebens legte er seine privaten Gedanken zu verschiedenen Tagesereignissen in Tausenden von oft witzigen, gelegentlich scharfzüngigen, immer aber von hohem sprachlichen Können erfüllten Epigrammen nieder . Kurz vor seinem Ableben (1655) hatte er noch sein gesamtes Oeuvre säuberlich chronologisch geordnet und . zur Veröffentlichung gebracht" (Dünnhaupt). "Das Epigramm ist die ältere Form des Aphorismus. Seit der Renaissance in Europa wieder heimisch, bewußt und unbewußt noch mehr wie andere Dichtgattungen auf das antike Vorbild, die griechische Anthologie, Martial usw. zurückgehend, hat es in allen von der Renaissance berührten Ländern eine außerordentliche Rolle gespielt. Wenn schon bei seinen Lebzeiten Friedrich von Logau unbestritten als der genialste Epigrammdichter der Deutschen gegolten hat und sich diesen Ruhm durch die ganze Folgezeit bewahren konnte, so entspringt dies mindestens so sehr seinen menschlichen Eigenschaften wie seiner spezifischen Begabung. Zwar ist er an Einfällen überreich, weiß sie treffend und knapp zu gestalten, gut auf die Pointe hinzuarbeiten und eindringlich zu formulieren. Mehr aber wie dies alles wirkt die starke, klare, einfache Männlichkeit seiner Gesinnung. Ein aufrechter Mensch spricht hier . lächelt und zürnt und sieht mit offenem Auge was not tut. So ist er . durchaus kein trockener Moralist, sondern ein freudiger Mensch gewesen, überall geschätzt, ja bewundert worden. (Das Buch ist) . ein wirkliches Kompendium deutscher Lebensweisheit, in der Kopf und Herz, Geist und Gemüt sich vereinigen, in der das Lachen oft laut schallt, aber nie verletzt, weil alle Bosheit fehlt" (Wolfskehl im Katalog zur Sammlung Manheimer). – Vollrandiges Exemplar auf festem Papier. Auch der Kupfertitel, der rechts meist angeschnitten ist, mit voller Darstellung und breitem Rand. Titel mit kl. Wappenstempel der Bibliothek Oettingen-Wallerstein. Exlibris.

        Kolf / The Golf Player

      Amsterdam, 1654; restrike 1998. Etching, restrike, 9 x 14 cm. Eight of Rembrandt's original copper plates survive and in 1998 a run of them was restruck. "The seventeenth-century Dutch game of ?kolf?, which lent its name to the modern sport, golf, was extremely popular during Rembrandt?s lifetime. This etching shows a game taking place on a sunny afternoon at a country inn. The print is comprised of three separate studies, combined to create a single scene" --National Gallery. Cf.

        A new method of physick: or, A short view of Paracelsus and Galen's practice; in 3. treatises. I. Opening the nature of physick and alchymy. II. Shewing what things are requisite to a physitian and alchymist. III. Containing an harmonical systeme of physick. Written in Latin by Simeon Partlicius, phylosopher, and physitian in Germany. Translated into English by Nicholas Culpeper, Gent. student in physick and astrologie, dwelling on the east-side of Spittle-fields, neer London.

      Printed by Peter Cole in Leaden-Hall and are to be sold at his shop at the sign of the Printing-press in Cornhil neer the Royal Exchange: And by S. Howes J. Garfield and R. Westbrook, London 1654 - Hardcover. Small octavo. (xxvi), (308pp: paginated eccentrically as always: 1- 191, 392-548) Early (eighteenth century?) full leather binding, restored, with later gilt-stamped leather title-label. Later end-papers. The rare first (and only) edition of Culpeper's translation of Simeon Partliz's Paracelsian text "Medici systematis harmonici, in quo nova . Simeonis Partlicii." (1625). Little seems to be known about Simon Partliz (Simeon Partliz von Spitzberg) other than that we was born in Trest (German Triesch) now in the Czech Republic, circa 1590, and probably died in Trencín (now in Slovakia) circa 1640. A mathematician, astronomer, hermeticist, physician and "count palatine, and poet lautreate," he is best known for the publication of this "harmonical system" drawing from Galen and Paracelsus in Latin in 1625. Culpeper's translation into English appeared in 1654. Culpeper's edition is truly rare, we have been unable to locate a record of any copy being sold in recent years. This copy has been collated against the British Library copy: curiously the BL copy has a half-title page, with the text "Mr Culpepers New Method both of Stu|dying & Practising Physick" on the recto, and a blank verso, between the title-page and the "To the Reader Page." Rather than the half-title page, this copy has an 8 page catalogue of "Books Printed by Peter Cole and Edward Cole" in the same position. As with all copies the volume is eccentrically paginated, with the pages numbered 1-191 and 392-548. In otherwords the verso of the last leaf of Signature p is erroneously numbered 392 instead of 192, and the error is continued throughout the remainder of the book. The binding is solid, though somewhat splayed, and rather rubbed. The original backstrip has been laid down, and has some chips, but thanks to its restoration is absolutely firm, and has a pleasant, antique appearance. The title page is chipped around the edges, and quite heavily foxed, as is the final page. Moderately heavy foxing throughout. Two leaves (pp. 139/140 & 141/142) are lacking, but facsimile replacements have been bound in. Overall a sturdy, G + copy of a very rare work. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        ALS from Vice-Admiral Sir John Lawson, on board his ship Fairfax, almost certainly to Oliver Cromwell, reporting on the disposition of Parliament's ships and in particular the dispatch of the Bristol to Jersey, and the Maidstone to Guernsey, 'according to your Hon. Order'. Dated 'Fairfax Downes, this 15th of June 1654'.

      1654 1654 - 1 page, 10 lines. The Fairfax had been badly damaged by fire at Chatham Docks in 1653, but was rebuilt, and at the date of this letter Lawson commanded the North Sea and English Channel fleet. The Downes are the area of sea just north east of Dover. The letter dates from the period immediately after the end of the 1st Anglo-Dutch War, which was re-ignited in March 1665. Cromwell assumed the title of Lord Protector in the previous year and sought immediately to consolidate his position against any Royalist threat. With the fugitive Charles II on the continent, Cromwell was clearly worried by the threat of the young King raising his forces and invading via the Channel Islands. Lawson, 1615-1655, reports that the Gainsborough and the Mermaid have been despatched to the Downes, and frigates have been sent to Flanders ? where at this time the young King was in exile. Lawson served diligently on behalf of Parliament but was dismissed from office on political grounds in 1656 and later implicated in the conspiracy of the Fifth Monarchists and arrested in 1657. He was later appointed Commander in Chief of the Fleet in 1659 on the assumption of power by Richard Cromwell, and assisted George Monck in the orchestration of the Restoration of the King in 1660. He was knighted by Charles on his return.

He studied medicine and received a dispensation from the parliamentary delegates for the degree of bachelor of physic 1 Feb. 1647-8. In 1648 the parliamentary delegates expelled him from his beadleship. He Ôlived afterwards in London in a starving condition, and wrote trite things merely to get bread to sustain him and his wifeÕ (Wood).his chief publication, ÔPleasant Notes upon Don QuixotÕ, a gossipy and anecdotal commentary in four books, in both prose and verse, is spiritedly written. It embodies many humorous anecdotes and quotations from the works of little-known contemporaries, besides references of high historical interest to contemporary society and Ôour late stage.Õ Shakespeare is thrice mentioned, pp. 21, 95, 130, but Gayton regarded his Ôfather, Ben,Õ as the greater dramatist .
