        Vindiciæ Academarium containing some briefe animadversions upn Mr Webster's Book, stiled, The Examination of Academies.

      1654 - Oxford: Leonard Lichfield. 1654. Small 4to. Recently rebound in full brown morocco, gilt lettering to spine; pp. 65; very good. Provenance: family copy with bookplate of a later Seth Ward to front pastedown. First edition. Seth Ward (1617-1689) was an astronomer, mathematician and Bishop of Salisbury. This was an important work in the ongoing controversy started by Thomas Hobbes's attack on the Oxbridge system in Leviathan (1651). The chemist John Webster weighed in on Hobbes's side with his Examen Academarium, which doubted the need of a university-educated clergy. This is Ward's riposte, which comes with a preface by his ally John Wilkins. It was published anonymously because of the strength of the opinions expressed, although there was a clue to the author's identity - it is signed at the end 'H.D', which are the last letters of Ward's first- and surnames. Although the book is aimed at Webster it also contains a detailed refutation of Hobbes and his contention that the universities refused to each anything beyond Aristotle: ". natural science and all new forms of knowledge are welcomed, mathematics has been considerably advanced, chemistry and magnetism are studied, and projects are afoot for establishing a laboratory for chemical, mechanical and optical researches. Those who cry out upon the university exercises in the schools close their eyes to the work done in college halls and in tutors' chambers". Ward was a founding member of the Royal Society; it is worth noting that Hobbes was never elected. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Beschryving van de stad Briele, en den lande van Voorn, ...Rotterdam, Philippus Losel, 1729. 2 parts in 1 volume. Folio. With a double-page engraved plan of Den Briel and 3 folding engraved maps of different parts of Voorne (each ca. 50 x 70.5 cm). Contemporary blind-tooled vellum.

      Donkersloot-de Vrij 247; V. Eeghen & V.d. Kellen 473; Klaversma & Hannema 47. First and only edition of a topographical and historical description of Den Briel on the island of Voorne. Cornelis van Alkemade (1654-1737) and his son-in-law Pieter van der Schelling (1691-1751) shared a passion for collecting coins, seals, official documents, autographs and books. Van Alkemade also copied many historical documents. The present work reflects his collection on Den Briel, the city that will always be remembered for being the first to be captured by the Dutch in the 80 Years' War in 1572. Van Alkemade gives the usual historical and geographical description, which describes among other things the successive growth of the polders on the island of Voorne, and chronicles the history of the noble family that governed Voorne. The present work is especially interesting because it contains the first published text of Jan Matthijsen's famous Rechtsboek of the city of Den Briel. It was probably written between 1400 and 1423, and is one of the oldest and most important sources of for the study of Dutch law.Maps with tears in some folds, a few leaves with some names checked off and a water stain in the upper right corner of the last 25 leaves. The blind-stamped centrepiece on the front board has cut through the vellum at the upper right edge. In good condition.

        Les voyage [!] du sieur Du Loir, ensemble de ce qui se passa à la mort du feu Sultan Mourat dans le Serrail, les ceremonies de ses funerailles; & celles de l'avenement à l'Empire de Sultan Hibraim son frere, qui luy succeda. Avec la relation du siege de Babylone fait en 1639, par Sultan Mourat.

      Paris, François Clouzier, 1654. - 8vo. (16), 358, (24) pp. (including final errata leaf). Small woodcut vignette to title; woodcut intitials, head and tail pieces. Modern full calf, bound to style. First edition (variant title). - A series of ten letters written from 1639 to 1641 in which Du Loir gives his impressions of Constantinople and the Sultan's court, to which the author was privy as a member of the entourage of French ambassador Jean de La Haye. The originality of this correspondence lies also in the transliteration of several Qur'an verses (letter 5) and in providing the musical source of a Turkish song. The eighth letter includes the Ottoman text (and its French translation) of an account of the conquest of Baghdad, with a bilingual translation from Ottoman into French of the several titles of the Sultan and the other dignitaries of the court. - The author spent some eighteen months in the Levant: while he was in Turkey, Sultan Murad died and Du Loir was present at the coronation of Sultan Ibrahim. He returned to Venice in 1641 after passing through the Morea; the first and the last of the letters give some account of mainland Greece and the islands. "Cet ouvrage, écrit avec conscience, contient sur les moeurs orientales de l'époque des documents utiles pour l'histoire de la Turquie" (NBG XV, 138). - This is the rarer (and probably earlier) variant edition, mentioned in Blackmer, with a different subtitle (instead of "contenu . sujets"). - Contemporary ownership ("G. Carius") to title; latterly in the collection of the American dietician and professor of medicine Edward E. Cornwall (b. 1866; his ownership signature to the front free endpaper), previously inscribed to N. O. Cornwall "with a merry Christmas". Insignificant browning, but a good copy.

      Donkersloot-de Vrij 247; V. Eeghen & V.d. Kellen 473; Klaversma & Hannema 47. First and only edition of a topographical and historical description of Den Briel on the island of Voorne. Cornelis van Alkemade (1654-1737) and his son-in-law Pieter van der Schelling (1691-1751) shared a passion for collecting coins, seals, official documents, autographs and books. Van Alkemade also copied many historical documents. The present work reflects his collection on Den Briel, the city that will always be remembered for being the first to be captured by the Dutch in the 80 Years' War in 1572. Van Alkemade gives the usual historical and geographical description, which describes among other things the successive growth of the polders on the island of Voorne, and chronicles the history of the noble family that governed Voorne. The present work is especially interesting because it contains the first published text of Jan Matthijsen's famous Rechtsboek of the city of Den Briel. It was probably written between 1400 and 1423, and is one of the oldest and most important sources of for the study of Dutch law.Maps with tears in some folds, a few leaves with some names checked off and a water stain in the upper right corner of the last 25 leaves. The blind-stamped centrepiece on the front board has cut through the vellum at the upper right edge. In good condition.

        Tartaros en China, historia.Madrid, Joseph Fernadez de Buendia for Lorenço de Ibarra, 1665. Small 8vo (14.5×10 cm). Late 18th-century gold-tooled mottled goatskin.

      Cordier, Sinica, col. 626; Lust 45; cf Hanotiau 15; Löwendahl 107. First edition of the Spanish translation of an “important and extremely popular work on the history of China. Many editions followed [after the original Latin edition of 1654], ... testifying of the enormous interest for China all over Europe and the impact the book had on the European image and conceptions of the Empire” (Hanotiau). The Italian Jesuit Martino Martini (1614-1661), travelled to China in 1643 at a time of great internal unrest, witnessing the violent overthrow of the ancient Ming dynasty in the years 1643-1644. Besides the present work, Martini is also well-known for the atlas of China that he published together with Joan Blaeu.With owner's inscription on title-page. The title-page is somewhat worn, a small corner of D2 torn off, a minor ink stain in the outer margins of 3 leaves and the head margin trimmed close to the running heads. Still a good copy. Some very minor damage to the spine of the binding, otherwise very good.

      Bibliotheca Sussexiana, vol. I-2, pp. 119-20, vol. II, p. 8; Mayer, Bibliography of the Samaritans, p. 32; VD18 (8 copies). First and only edition of a small polyglot Bible. Although this only contains the first four chapters of Genesis, it does so in seven languages printed in five different scripts. The publication of polyglot bibles in the 16th and 17th centuries was an important aid in comparative Bible studies. By comparing the eldest versions of the Bible available, written in the languages in use in the Middle-East, scholars hoped to better understand the text. Most of the text in this edition was reprinted from the London Polyglot published in 1654-57, but apparently the Ethiopic text was published here for the first time.Georg Otho (1634-1713) was professor of Greek and Oriental languages at the University of Marburg and published a number of books on this subject. Contemporary ownership entries on the front pastedown; pencil marks in the second part; binding slightly worn; last ten leaves with small waterstains, somewhat browned. An interesting polyglot bible printed in five different scripts.

        A BRIEFE EXPOSITION WITH PRACTICALL OBSERVATIONS UPON THE WHOLE BOOK OF ECCLESIASTES

      Printed by T[homas] C[hilde] for Ralph Smith, London 1654 - 165 x 102 mm. (6 1/2 x 4"). 4 p.l., 277, [3] pp.Published by Anthony Tuckney, D.D., Master of Saint Johns College in Cambridge. FIRST EDITION. Original unlettered rustic sheep, recently and expertly resewn, rebacked, and recornered. Brinley 560; Sabin 17049; Wing C-6413. A bit of rubbing to edges, boards slightly marked and stained, but the binding now very well restored and generally quite pleasing. Frequent light spotting and browning (but never severe, and noticeable in only a couple of gatherings), one small, dark rust hole, otherwise very satisfactory internally, and in a much better state of preservation than most early American imprints. This is a very scarce copy of an early Americanum, a work based on sermons preached in the Massachusetts Bay Colony by Puritan divine John Cotton (1584-1652), grandfather of Cotton Mather. In the words of ANB, the elder Cotton was "one of the most influential leaders . . . in the first generation of New England's settlement" and someone who "brought a scholar's erudition to his practice as preacher, biblical interpreter, disputant, and analyst of spiritual experience." Although his non-conformist views forced him to emigrate from England to America, he was known in New England for his opposition to dissent within the church and was one of the major opponents of Roger Williams, who was banished from the colony for his religious beliefs. The present exegetical text is the source for the wonderful phrase, "to every thing there is a season." The work is rarely encountered in the marketplace, ABPC listing just one copy at auction since 1975.
