Courcier, Paris (paper label to front pastedown), Thomas Moreaud (signed armorial bookplate loosely inserted). ---- I. FIRST EDITION of the Huygens' rare second publication. According to Beckmann a remarkable work. 'In his De circuli magnitudine inventa he approximated the center of gravity of a segment of a parabola, and thus found an approximation of the quadrature; with this he was able to refine the inequalities between the area of the circle and those of the inscribed and circumscribed polygons used in the calculations of Kpk p. The same approximation with segments of the parabola, in the case of a hyperbola, yields a quick and simple method to calculate logarithms, a finding he explained before the Academy in 1666-1667" (Beckmann). … [Click Below for Full Description]

Allaeus, Franciscus.
1654. Folio (235 x 360 mm). (4), 4, 12 pp. 57, (1) pp. 26 pp., terminal blank. With 1 engraved disc in the text of the first count (a repeat of disc 2 of the first volvelle), 3 volvelles in the first section, composed of 11 parts; and 2 volvelles in the second section, composed of 6 parts (all but two stitched together, but inserted loosely, never sewn into the book). Contemporary full vellum. Rare second, expurged edition of this remarkable treatise offering predictions for the destiny of European nations, issued without place or printer in the year of the almost unobtainable first edition, most copies of which were burned by the hangman at Nantes and Rennes shortly after publication. The first edition was deemed offensive due to the predictions of five volvelles in the second section which offered horoscopes for Islam, Christianity, France, Spain, and England. A "Figura Sectae Mahometanae" dared to give a horoscope of the Prophet Mohammed and a list of significant events in the history of Islam; this was followed by predictions which included the suggestion that a quarter of the world would be Islamic by 1703. The horoscope of Christianity also included dire predictions: indeed, those for the fate of England (ending with the wiping out of the English nation in 1884) caused a serious diplomatic rift, resulting in the English ambassador demanding the book be suppressed. The present edition of the "Astrologiae Nova Methodus" (and subsequent ones) omits the incriminated 7 pages and 5 volvelles; instead, it prefixes a new, two-page introduction entitled "Principiorum Astrologi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Louis XIV
A glimpse into the Age of Louis XIV at the apex of his power, signed by prominent royal, judicial and diplomatic figures Louis XIII had two children. His son Louis XIV, who came to be known as the glorious "Sun King," was crowned when just five years old. He was King for over 72 years, and remains the longest reigning monarch of a major European power. Louis XIV was the embodiment of the Divine Right of Kings. He strengthened and centralized the power of the monarch, and encouraged the loyalty of the nobles, bringing them closer and closer to the court at Versailles. Under his leadership France became the strongest power in Europe. It was also a time of the flourishing of arts and philosophy. The reign of Louis XIV has the same aura of a great, even romantic, flowering about it as that of Elizabeth I of England. The younger son of Louis XIII was Philippe, also called the Duke of Anjou, who greatly expanded his political domains, adding dukedoms and other offices, as well as growing the fortunes of the House of Orleans. At the coronation of Louis XIV in 1654, Philippe acted as dean, placing the crown of France on his brother's head. The two men had a heated argument one day in 1701 over family affairs. Philippe angrily returned early the same evening to dine with his son. He collapsed after suffering a fatal stroke. Louis XIV, upon hearing his only sibling had died, said "I cannot believe I will never see my brother again." A parlement (parliament) was a provincial appellate court in Ancien Régime France. The most important of them was by far the Parlement of Paris. They … [Click Below for Full Description]

Finely bound in twentieth-century brown morocco, ruled and decorated in blind, lettered to spine in gilt. A.E.G., marbled endpapers. Slightest of shelf wear to extremities, else a fine copy. Portrait neatly restored to verso, without loss. Early ink inscription of J. Pirie to head of title, recent bookplate of Christopher Rowe to FEP. John Cleveland (bap. 1613, d. 1658), English metaphysical poet and royalist. Educated at Cambridge, Cleveland was elected as the Hebblethwaite Fellow of St. John's College in 1634; with somewhat of a reputation as an orator and writer, his responsibilities included addressing important visitors and corresponding with establishment figures. An ardent royalist, Cleveland departed from Cambridge in the early 1640s (and was ejected from his college positions in 1645), moving to Oxford and proximity to the Royalist court, and taking the office of Judge Advocate at Newark in 1646. It is for the political satires he composed during the English Civil Wars that Cleveland is chiefly remembered; notably The Character of a London-Diurnall (London?, 1644), which includes amongst an attack on the prevalence of Civil War newsbooks a sketch on Cromwell, and The Rebell Scot, a withering attack on Scots ('Sure England hath the Hemeroids, and these On the North posture of the patience sieze, Like Leeches, thus they physically thirst After our bloud'), Scottish character ('like witches') and Scotland itself ('such a wildernesse', which … [Click Below for Full Description]

Moll, Herman
1654. unbound. Moll, Hermann. Map. Uncolored engraving. Image measures 6.5" x 7.25". Page measures 13.5" x 8.5". This map shows the Portuguese colony of Brazil as divided into hereditary captaincies. Engraved lines emphasize the colony's long coastline, which the accompanying text describes as a long Skirt upon the sea." Along this coast, ports, bays, river inlets, and other features are all labeled. Inland is less detailed, however the region's main rivers are shown as they reach between Part of the Amazones, at top, and part of La Plata, at bottom. At left, a compass rose radiating rhumb lines punctuates the labeling of the Atlantic Ocean. Below the map, text in English describes the geographical extent of the colony and some details of its history.The map is In good condition. Some minor offsetting in the lower portion of the image.Of German or Dutch origin, Herman Moll (c. 1654-1732) settled in London in the 1670's where he worked as an engraver for Moses Pitt. By the turn of the century, Moll became the foremost map publisher in England, where he produced Atlases and maps. As an engraver, cartographer, mapseller and globemaker he appealed to the public with his unusual views and vignettes. As the demand for his work was sustained, he issued many revised editions of his work. Hard to find.

Helmstedt Müller, 1654. 44 Blätter (Titelblatt, Widmung und Vorwort); 8 Blätter (Lob des Justinian); 12 Blätter; 171 Seiten (Fehlpaginierung: recte 172 Seiten; auf Seite 151 folgt noch einmal eine mit 151 paginierte Seite); 304 Seiten (Anmerkungen); 10 Blätter (Index). Prächtiger Pergamentband der Zeit über sechs durchgezogene Pergamentstreifen geheftet und azf dem Rücken sowie den Deckeln goldgeprägt. Zeitgenössischer allseitiger, gepunzter Goldschnitt. (19,3 x 17 cm) 8°. Graesse V, 455. OCLC 632842098. - Geheimgeschichte des Kaiserhofs von Byzanz - Äußerst dekorativer, zeitgenössischer Luxuseinband. Da sich auf dem Titelblatt ein alter - in jüngerer Zeit hinterlegter - Ausschnitt befindet, läßt sich zur sicher spannenden Provenienz nichts sagen, denn genau hier hatte sich wohl der alte Besitzvermerk befunden. Der Druck in griechischer und lateinischer Sprache zumeist sehr sauber, nur einzelne Seiten sind etwas gebräunt. Mit einigen Vignetten geschmückt. Ein später aufgefundener Text Prokops, der die "offizielle" Geschichte des römischen Kaisers Justinians und seiner Gattin Theodora um teils kritische, teils diffamierende Aspekte ergänzt, heimlich um 555 geschrieben und weder zu Lebzeiten des Geschichtsschreibers noch nach seinem Tode veröffentlicht. Erstmals erwähnt werden die "Anekdota" im 10. Jahrhundert, wiederentdeckte Handschriften aus dem 14. Jahrhundert wurden jedoch erstmalig 1623 editiert, hier erst die zweite Druckausgabe überhaupt.

Henry VIII; Boleyn, Anne; Elizabeth I; Devereux, Robert (Earl of Essex); Cecil, Robert (Earl of Salisbury); Walsingham, Francis; Bacon, Francis; Bodeley, Thomas; James I; Raleigh, Walter; Philip III of Spain; Charles I, et al.
London: Printed for G. Bedel, and T. Collins, and are to be sold at their Shop at the Middle-Temple-gate in Fleet-street, 1654. First edition of this collection of internal and otherwise "secret" primary sources from the reign of Henry VIII through Charles I. Beginning with Henry VIII's 1533 letter to the clergy in York, "touching his Title of Supreme Head of the Church of England," and the doomed Anne Boleyn's 1536 letter to the king from her cell, this compilation offers readers insight into the politics of early modern England at every level. The machinations of Spain, the problems with Ireland, and the uneasy position of Catholics in England are all addressed by heads of state and their closest counselors, while Thomas Bodeley rebukes Francis Bacon for the arrogance of his scientific method, and Bacon admits to Essex that he has "plaid the ignorant Statesman, which I do to no body but your Lordship, except I do it to the Queen sometimes when she trains me on." Scrinia Sacra was issued as a companion volume to Cabala, the publisher's collection of related letters published earlier that year; the two volumes were released together with a new general title page soon after this first printing. Wing S2110. From the library of David Belasco (1853-1931), the American theatrical impresario and playwright, with his elaborate decorative bookplate. A very good example of a popular political sourcebook. Quarto, modern full dark green morocco, boards paneled Cambridge-style with double rules and corner ornaments in blind, raised bands, black morocco spine label, spine ruled and lett … [Click Below for Full Description]
