The Defensio Secunda has verve and vitality and the implicit promise of greater writing to come" (Parker, Milton, page 435). First Edition. Full Vellum. Good. 24mo.

        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. Light offsetting and spotting; first and last pages dust-soiled.

      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.

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.

Su mujer, Tamar, murió en 2013, también a los 96 años. Tras su fallecimiento su biblioteca fue vendida.).- // Dificilísima primera edición, muy escasa en bibliotecas y todavía más en comercio, de esta descripción de los parajes de Palestina, protagonistas del Nuevo testamento. El éxito de la crónica, en parte debido a los grabados que ofrecían a los fieles cristianos las imágenes de cómo eran realmente los santos lugares, hizo que a esta edición original de 1654 siguieran en breve la también muy cotizada de 1655 procedente de la imprenta plantiniana de Amberes, y la de Barcelona, realizada por Antonio Arroque, que no lleva grabados. En la Imprenta Real de Madrid volvió a imprimirse en 1656 (edición frecuente en comercio) y en 1664; y Antonio Mureto la imprimió en Paris, en 1666, en la última de las ediciones del s. XVII. Hay ejemplares -este, no- de esta primera edición que están expurgados en la p. 144 (numerada 134), para repudiar la forma en que Antonio del Castillo exculpaba a Longinos (el soldado que clavó la lanza a Jesús crucificado), lo que forzó que en siguientes ediciones se añadiese por delante una cita del evangelio de san Juan en la que se afirma que Jesús ya estaba muerto antes de ser alanceado. El autor del grabado de la portada, Johaness Frideric Greuter (1600-?), era hijo del también artista grabador de Estrasburgo Mathieu Greuter. Casado dos veces en Roma, la primera en 1618, parece que siempre ejerció allí, por lo que el encargo del grabado debió realizarlo Antonio del Castillo a su paso por esa ciudad en su regreso de Palestina a España. El resto de los grabados que cubren la primera mitad de la obra carecen de firma. Valorado de antaño, Palau señala "42 fr. Paris en tafilete por Petiti-Simier, luego 150 fr. Bachelin, 21 libras Magg Bros en 1927, 150 pts. en 1951." En España sólo localizamos dos ejemplares de esta primera edición, uno en la Universidad Complutense y otro en la abadía de Montserrat. Fuera de España solo la hemos localizado en cuatro bibliotecas: Biblioteca nacional de Holanda, Biblioteca regional de Württemberg y bibliotecas universitarias de Harvard y del estado en Viena.- Refs.: Brunet, I, 634; Graesse, II, 66; Heredia, 2878; Palau, 48038.

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.

        Lagenia; Anglis Leinster - [The County of Leinster]

      Amsterdam: Janssonius. Original Map with beautifully coloured cartouche and border-colours. . Amsterdam, Janssonius, 1654. Original, hand-coloured engraving. The engraving (the plate) itself 50.5 cm x 40 cm Mounted: c. 70 cm x 60 cm Original Map with beautifully coloured cartouche and border-colours. Johannes Janssonius (1588, Arnhem ?- buried July 11, 1664, Amsterdam) (born Jan Janszoon, in English often incorrect Jan Jansson) was a Dutch cartographer and publisher who lived and worked in Amsterdam in the 17th century. Janssonius was born in Arnhem, the son of Jan Janszoon the Elder, a publisher and bookseller. In 1612 he married Elisabeth de Hondt, the daughter of Jodocus Hondius. He produced his first maps in 1616 of France and Italy. In 1623 Janssonius owned a bookstore in Frankfurt am Main, later also in Danzig, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Berlin, Königsberg, Geneva and Lyon. Elisabeth Hondius died in 1627 and he remarried one Elisabeth Carlier in 1629. In the 1630s he formed a partnership with his brother in law Henricus Hondius, and together they published atlases as Mercator/Hondius/Janssonius. Under the leadership of Janssonius the Hondius Atlas was steadily enlarged. Renamed Atlas Novus, it had three volumes in 1638, one fully dedicated to Italy. 1646 a fourth volume came out with "English County Maps", a year after a similar issue by Willem Blaeu. Janssonius' maps are similar to those of Blaeu, and he is often accused of copying from his rival, but many of his maps predate those of Blaeu and/or covered different regions. By 1660, at which point the atlas bore the appropriate name "Atlas Major", there were 11 volumes, containing the work of about a hundred credited authors and engravers. It included a description of "most of the cities of the world" (Townatlas), of the waterworld (Atlas Maritimus in 33 maps), and of the Ancient World (60 maps). The eleventh volume was the Atlas of the Heavens by Andreas Cellarius. Editions were printed in Dutch, Latin, French, and a few times in German. After Janssonius's death, the publishing company was continued by his son-in law, Johannes van Waesbergen. The London bookseller Moses Pitt attempted publication of the Atlas Major in English, but ran out of resources after the fourth volume in 1683. (Wikipedia)

      Johann und Heinrich Stern, Lüneburg 1654 - First (and only) Edition. Wolffheim II, 2388. Eitner VIII, p. 249. Krabbe: Johann Rist und das Deutsche Lied pp. 212, no. 5. RISM B/VIII/1 (Das Deutsche Kirchenlied) 1654-04 Rist - HM 1634 (3 copies only recorded in the U.S.). Rist-HM 1654.The fine frontispiece engraving depicts a family playing music together at home: the patriarch is seated in a King David- like pose, playing a lute, a female figure and two young children sing from open music books, and a male figure plays a table-top keyboard instrument. See Salmen: Haus- und Kammermusik pp. 62-63, Vol. IV, part 3, in the series Musikgeschichte in Bildern. Johann Rist, a Lutheran pastor active in Hamburg and its surroundings, is considered one of the major German hymn writers; he also wrote and produced plays. Among his most famous hymns is "O Ewigkeit, du Donnerwort," of which various English translations exist. Johann Schop, originally from Hamburg, is famous for the melody of the chorale that J.S. Bach elaborated in his chorus known in English as "Jesu, joy of man's desiring" from his cantata BWV 147. Michael Jacobi was a personal friend of Rist, who recommended him to Lüneburg.The present collection assembles hymns for devotion outside church services—predominantly for the domestic sphere ("Haußmusik") but also, for instance, for schools. All imaginable situations of seventeenth- century life are covered, including a hymn "for a woman in labor, to be sung either by herself or also by the bystanding women." Octavo. Half vellum with manuscript tiling to spine. [i] (title), [i] (dedication to the mayors and councillors of the city of Lübeck), [i] (blank), [ii] (illustration of a scene of domestic music-making engraved by Martin Bülck, Hamburg), [xvii] (author's "Zuschrift" to the dedicatees), [xxi] (author's preface to the reader), [i] (part title), 2- 381 (hymns), [ii] (two sonnets), [xiv] (three registers: table of contents; alphabetical index to keywords; alphabetical index to text incipits), [i] (blank) pp. Typeset throughout, with music in diamond-head notation. With numerous decorative woodcut initials, head- and tailpieces.The music of the hymns is notated in two parts, in choirbook style: cantus (melody) to verso, bassus to recto, each underlaid with first strophe followed by complete rendition of all strophes (including first) as residual text. Some hymns have no tune of their own; a text incipit refers to the intended tune instead. Of the 70 lieder, 22 are credited to Michael Jacobi (spelled "Jakobi"), who is not mentioned on the title; all others are by Johann Schop. Exlibris the lending library of Aug[ust] Hertwig to front pastedown endpaper. Small hole to outer edge of pp. 265-66; adjacent pages browned at same spot; small tear to pp. 299- 300; slight imperfection to pp. 321-22; some mispagination.
