        Mysterium magnum An exposition of the first book of Moses called Genesis Concerning the manifestation or revelation of the divine word through the three principles of the divine essence; also of the originall of the world and the creation Wherein the kingdome of nature, & the kingdome of grace, are expounded For the better understanding of the Old and New Testament

      London: . Simmons for H. Blunden, , 1654. With 2 engraved plates on either side of one sheet. Both Durand Hotham?'s Life of the Author and the four tables have separate title pages. Full calf in a contemporary style, gilt decorations on covers, spine in compartments with gilt title and decorations; signature of James Bidell on title dated 1827, some browning and spotting, but overall a very good copy. First Edition in English of Boehme?'s masterpiece, a mystical interpretation of Genesis. As a young man, Boehme experienced a mystical vision revealing the spiritual structure of the universe as well as the relationships between good and evil and God and man. His focus on the vision of the spiritual universe supports his detailed discussion of the first book of the Old Testament. Now quite rare, Boehme became highly influential in intellectual circles of Protestant Europe, especially in England and Holland. His interests in Paracelsus, the Kabbala, alchemy and the Hermetic tradition are clearly part of the foundation of his writing. His first written work, Aurora, went unfinished, but drew to him a small circle of followers. He has since influenced major figures in philosophy, especially German Romantics such as Hegel, Baader, and Schelling. His influence can be also be traced to the work of Schopenhauer, Nietzsche, and Heidegger. Martin Buber drew heavily from his work, as did Carl Jung, who made numerous references to Boehme in his writings. An intuitive genius, Boehme was one of the great mystical mind of the Rosicrucian period (1610-1625). Boehme (1575-1624) completed this work in 1623, and died the following year. He was highly influential on generations of mystics, especially of the English school. Societies of Behmenites were formed in England (he was referred to Behmen in England); many of them were later absorbed by the Quakers.

        Heresiography, Or a Description of the Heretickes and Sectaries Sprang up in these latter times....

      William Lee, London, 1654, Hard Cover, Book Condition: Poor, Fifth EditionSize: 5¾" by 7¾", Scarce early edition of this important book, first published in 1645, an early catalogue of, at best, variant Christianities, which were then rife in England; this edition is the first to include "the Quakers or Shakers, and the Ranters", though it is not clear who wrote these additions, as Pagitt died in 1647. Other sects described include the Anabaptists, Jesuits, Divorsers, Familists, Antinomians, Seekers, Adanites, Antisabbatarians, Arminians, Nestorians, Robinsonians, Traskites, many others. Later (mid 1800s?) binding, which has failed; the boards are both detached. Title pages (one engraved) both edgeworn, chipped, mended; missing at least one leaf of the 'Epistle Dedicatory': the extant text begins "themselves in holes; now lift up their heads, and vent openly their errors....". Based on an old review in Book-Lore, Volume 1 (1885) quoting some of the content, we believe the missing leaf to have contained a list of the heretic sects described and the dedication to the Lord Mayor et al.; the main body of text is intact. Generally edgeworn, chipped, some staining, paper tanned; close-trimmed, losing the margins of some of the marginal summaries; minor pencil marginalia; ink name (W. H. Daubney, once Vicar of Harlington, Bedfordshire, and Rector of Leasingham, Lincolnshire, author of at least one book) inside front cover. [14], [3]-150 (with some errors), [1], [6] page 'table' (index) + 5 pages publisher's ads.

        Ephemeris Parliamentaria; Or a Faithfull Register of the Transactions

      1654. An Important Source Relating to the Origins of the English Civil War F[uller], T[homas] [1608-1661], Compiler. Ephemeris Parliamentaria; Or a Faithfull Register of the Transactions in Parliament, In the Third and Fourth Years of the Reign of Our Late Sovereign Lord King Charles: Containing the Severall Speeches, Cases, and Arguments of Law Transacted Between his Majesty and Both Houses. Together with the Grand Mysteries of the Kingdome then in Agitation. London: Printed for John Williams and Francis Eglesfield, 1654. [xx], 136, 121-269, [3] pp. Text continuous despite pagination. Folio (10-1/2" x 7"). Recent calf, raised bands and lettering piece to spine, endpapers renewed. Negligible light rubbing to boards. Title page printed in red and black, woodcut head-piece and decorated initials. Moderate toning and wrinkling to text, occasional faint dampspotting. Later tick marks in light pencil to margins, interior otherwise clean. * Only edition. A landmark in historical research, this was the first printed collection of Parliamentary addresses. Published during the Commonwealth period to help elucidate the events of the recent past, it records the tumultuous debates between Crown and Parliament during the early regnal years of Charles I. Fuller's preface, considered by some to the best of its kind ever written, "convincingly justifies the concept of viewing recent and current events as historically significant, and studying them in the same manner" (Wing). It is certainly a vivid collection, one that gives you a sense of presence as England moved toward civil war.

        A Choice Manuall, or Rare and Select Secrets in Physick and Chyrurgery [with] A True Gentlewomans Delight. Wherein is contained all manner of Cookery

      London: G.D., 1654. Fourth Edition. Hardcover (rebound in leather). Good Condition. Rebound in plain modern calf. Lacking the portrait, soiling to first title, last few pages chipped at edges, scattered mostly minor stains and creases. (viii), 206; (xviii), 140pp. Cagle 786/788 (1653 eds.), Bitting 201 (1659), Notaker 531.4. First published in 1653, the Choice Manuall was compiled (at least by convention) from The Countess of Kent's receipts by "W.J." (who signed the preface). It's likely that W.J. also compiled the second part, but it's unclear from where. The True Gentlewoman's Delight collects 232 recipes with no real organizing principle. It includes the first recipe for a "fricassee" (frigasie of chickens, lamb) and a wide array of sugar cookery and preserves, including some advance in marmalade technology (see: jelly of pippins and jelly of marmalet). Unlike continental recipe books of the period, this, like a number of others from the same period, was aimed directly and exclusively at (upper class) women. Size: 24mo. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilo. Category: Cooking, Wine & Dining; Inventory No: CAT000139.

        Lothian and Linlitquo

      Amsterdam 1654 - Willem Janzoon Blaeu (1571-1638) 'Lothian and Linlitquo' from "Le Théatre du Monde ou Nouvel Atlas” published in Amsterdam, 1654. Copper plate engraving with original hand coloring. Paper size:24"x19 1/2". Condition: Generally good with some minor aging along margins. A map depicting the region around Edinburgh in Scotland notice the exquisite cartouche in the upper right corner. Willem Janzoon Blaeu (1571-1638) was the founding father of the single most important cartographic publishing company in the Netherlands for nearly one hundred years. Blaeu’s firm was based in Amsterdam, the center of European cartography at the time. Blaeu was also the hydographic expert for the famous East India Company and the chief cartographer of the United Republic of the Netherlands. Willem, along with his son Johanne, published the first two volumes of "Le Théatre du Monde ou Nouvel Atlas” in 1635 by 1672, however, the atlas had expanded into 12 volumes, the "Geographia Blaviana”, depicting in about 600 maps the entire known world with most up to date cartographic exactness of the time. The Bleau-atlasses, meant for the wealthiest Europeans, were produced using exceptionally high quality standards of engraving, typography, paper and hand-coloring, not to mention being expertly surveyed within the company. The maps are among the most beautiful ever made, embellished in the baroque style with ornamental cartouches and marvelous staffages so that the viewer is struck by the decorative value his eyes see.***If you frame up this item with Arader Galleries you can take a 50% discount off the listed price of this work of art.***

The sum of the printing information,"Published To prevent Mistakes, and false copies. LONDON, Printed by Henry Hills Printer to His Highness The Lord Protector, and to be sold at the sign of Sir John Oldcastle near Py-Corner. MDCLIV." The pamphlet has been bound in navy cloth boards and numbers 36 pages (last page is note from Jessop forbidding reprint). Size is 7 3/8 X 5" collation quarto. Spine is neatly labeled in gilt on black. The listed grade may be thought of as a compromise between the restoration, newish and nicely done, and the text which has age darkening and edge chip and other issues which will be specified. Specfically, the title page has a mild crease which may or may not be visible in foto to accompany listing. The first page of text has lower corner piece missing (1/2 postage stamp size) and the last 2 pages have tinier chips out at their lower edge. The lower edge has the sort of unevenness of finishing and consistent darkness that I associate with a natural cutting at time of the books making, the same is the case with the fore-edge. The top edge has micro dog ear and tiny chip coming out at upper corner of 13th page. The later pages, in some cases, have partial number cropping at top, I supect this is as made, as this edge is darkened and surely was not altered to fit the modern reworking. Text is complete and has some fox, wrinkle and so forth, all seeming quite legible even where the typography is imperfect as is the case with the first page, Book

        "Saint Chrysostome his Parænesis, or Admonition wherein hee recalls Theodorus the fallen. Or generally an exhortation for desperate sinners ... Translated by the Lord Viscount Grandison prisoner in the Tower "

      London: Thomas Dring. 1654. "First edition, 16mo, pp. [10], 126, [6]. & & An excerpt from the homiletic writings of St. John Chrysostom, probably written during the time of his episcopate towards the end of the 4th century A.D., at the time when Theodosius was emperor of Constantinople, and Eudoxia his empress. Chrysostom was himself a native of Antioch, in Syria. This translation is dedicated to Sir Thomas Wentworth, 1st Earl of Cleveland, and a prominent royalist general who was captured by Cromwell's forces in 1650; he narrowly escaped the death penalty, apparently on a technicality, and was instead imprisoned in the Tower until his release in 1656. The translator Viscount Grandison was a fellow prisoner, and presumably a supporter of Charles I as well. Wing C3980 records three copies only: British Library, Bodleian, and Keble College, Oxford. ESTC adds no others.& & Bound with: The certainty of heavenly, and the uncertainty of earthy treasures. Together with a discovery where the treasure and heart is placed. As it was delivered in severall sermons, by that eminently faithfull servant of Christ, Mr. William Strong, late minister ayt Winchester. London: printed by W. Wilson ... and are to be sold by Francis Tyton, 1654. First edition, pp. [2], 204; title and text within ruled borders.Wing S5998. Edinburgh and Folger only in ESTC. COPAC adda a very imperfect copy at the BL. William Strong was a prominent independent divine; he was born at Durham and educated at Cambridge. In 1640 he became rector of Moore Critchell in Dorsetshire but he was driven out in 1643 when the royalists attained ascendancy in the country. ""He fled to London, where he met a cordial reception, and frequently preached before Parliament ... He died in middle life in June 1654 and was buried in Westminster Abbey on 4 July; but on the Restoration his remains were dug up and thrown into a pit in St. Margaret's churchyard."" & & Together, 2 volumes in 1, contemporary full calf, triple blind rules on covers, triple blind fillets on spine; a fine copy."

Daniel Sennert (1572-1637) was a German physician and academic, professor of medicine at the University of Wittenberg for many years. He is now remembered mostly for his speculative support for the atomic theory, in chemistry. - Since the times of Hippocrates, physicians had been talking about "convulsions," particularly with reference to children, without clearly defining the meaning of the term and its relation to epilepsy. From the end of the fifteenth century on, when pediatric literature increased considerably, special attention was paid to epilepsy in infancy, and some attempts were made to draw the line between convulsions and epilepsy in children- Sennert for example, believed that in the former the 'materia peccans' aggregated around the spinal cord and the origins of the muscles, and that, therefore, the general commotion was slighter and disturbance of psychic functions absent. But, on the whole, such attempts remained without consequence. Physician had long known that convulsions in early childhood hat a different prognostic significance from epileptic seizures of older persons (p.193). - Vapors reaching the brain would therefore account for both epilepsy from the uterus and hysteria resulting in epileptic convulsions ...

        Saint Chrysostome his Parænesis, or Admonition wherein hee recalls Theodorus the fallen. Or generally an exhortation for desperate sinners . Translated by the Lord Viscount Grandison prisoner in the Tower

      Thomas Dring, London 1654 - First edition, 16mo, pp. [10], 126, [6]. An excerpt from the homiletic writings of St. John Chrysostom, probably written during the time of his episcopate towards the end of the 4th century A.D., at the time when Theodosius was emperor of Constantinople, and Eudoxia his empress. Chrysostom was himself a native of Antioch, in Syria. This translation is dedicated to Sir Thomas Wentworth, 1st Earl of Cleveland, and a prominent royalist general who was captured by Cromwell's forces in 1650; he narrowly escaped the death penalty, apparently on a technicality, and was instead imprisoned in the Tower until his release in 1656. The translator Viscount Grandison was a fellow prisoner, and presumably a supporter of Charles I as well. Wing C3980 records three copies only: British Library, Bodleian, and Keble College, Oxford. ESTC adds no others.Bound with: The certainty of heavenly, and the uncertainty of earthy treasures. Together with a discovery where the treasure and heart is placed. As it was delivered in severall sermons, by that eminently faithfull servant of Christ, Mr. William Strong, late minister ayt Winchester. London: printed by W. Wilson . and are to be sold by Francis Tyton, 1654. First edition, pp. [2], 204; title and text within ruled borders.Wing S5998. Edinburgh and Folger only in ESTC. COPAC adda a very imperfect copy at the BL. William Strong was a prominent independent divine; he was born at Durham and educated at Cambridge. In 1640 he became rector of Moore Critchell in Dorsetshire but he was driven out in 1643 when the royalists attained ascendancy in the country. "He fled to London, where he met a cordial reception, and frequently preached before Parliament . He died in middle life in June 1654 and was buried in Westminster Abbey on 4 July; but on the Restoration his remains were dug up and thrown into a pit in St. Margaret's churchyard."

      Du-Gard for Pullein, London 1654 - Glisson's Capsule GLISSON, Francis (1597?-1677). Anatomia hepatis. Cui praemittuntur quaedam ad rem anatomicam universe spectantia. . . . 8vo. [48] 458 [14]pp. 2 folding engraved plates, engraved text illustration, text woodcuts. London: Du-Gard for Octavian Pulleyn, 1654. 166 x 111 mm. 17th cent. calf, rebacked, endpapers renewed. Marginal dampstaining, lower edge of pp. 301-2 repaired, other lower edges frayed. Early inscriptions on flyleaf and title.First Edition. G-M 972. The first book printed in England to present a detailed account of a single organ based on original research, and the most important book to date on the physiology of the digestive system. Glisson used advanced anatomical methods, such as casts and injection of colored fluids, which enabled him to illustrate the vessels of the liver (portrayed in the two engraved plates). He described the passage of blood from the portal vein to the vena cava, and proved that lymph flows not to the liver, as was then believed, but from it, passing to the recently discovered capsula communis. This fibrous capsule, which Glisson was the first to describe accurately, is now known as "Glisson's capsule."Educated at Cambridge, where he later served as Regius Professor of Physic, Glisson was part of the extraordinary ferment in medicine and the life sciences that occured in the two English universities in the earlier seventeenth century. Like his influential colleague and friend, William Harvey, Glisson epitomized the English style of biological research: he was theoretically conservative and non-dogmatic; and at the same time he was committed to a rigorous program of experimentation, precise observation, and accurate description. His principal publications, especially the Anatomia hepatis, join an experimental exactitude and direct observation of the particular with a felt concern to preserve basic Aristotelian and Galenic traditions of natural philosophy. . . . Glisson's classic work on the liver . . . was based on dissections that Glisson had done over a decade earlier. It was the first work to recast fundamentally the physiology of the abdominal organs, to delineate the structure and function of the liver, and to identify and describe the fibrous tissue encasing the liver (Glisson's capsule). It also introduced Glisson's important concept of 'irritability,' in which he argued that irritation was the organism's way of recognizing substances to be expelled. The property of irritability was thus basic to the health of the organism" (Grolier Club, 100 Books Famous in Medicine [forthcoming], 29). DSB. Lilly, p. 67. Norman 911. Russell 322.

Al colophon, altra impresa tipografica, variante di quella riportata al titolo. Timbro e nota di possesso settecentesca all'occhietto. Bruniture e fioriture usuali, ma bell'esemplare. Rara seicentina di Anversa delle opere morali, teologiche, parenetiche, polemiche e di esegesi biblica di Alano da Lilla (Lilla, 1125 ca.–Citeaux, 1202). Interessanti i motivi polemici contro gli Ebrei, contro gli Albigesi (oggetto di acre polemica per la loro negazione dell'immortalità dell'anima) e contro i Valdesi, presenti alle pp. 201-278. Nella polemica antivaldese fa capolino il tema del rifiuto della pena di morte sostenuto dal valdismo. Scrive Adriano Prosperi in Dare l'anima. Storia di un infanticidio (Torino, Einaudi, 2005, p. 332): "Si capisce perché il ricorso ad una misura palesemente in contrasto col comandamento cristiano del "non uccidere" sollevasse così poche obiezioni nelle coscienze dei contemporanei: se si escludono piccoli gruppi ereticali come i valdesi e la loro intransigente difesa del letteralismo evangelico, non si trovano quasi altre contestazioni della liceità della pena di morte per tutta l'epoca qui presa in esame". Prosperi richiama direttamente la presente edizione (riportando per errore la data del 1653), segnalando le opere di Alano come interessante fonte per la conoscenza degli argomenti valdesi contro la condanna a morte.
