        Schism dis-arm'd of the defensive weapons, lent it by Doctor Hammond and the bishop of Derry.

      Paris: M. Blageart 8vo (14 cm, 5.5"). [8] ff., 333, [1] pp.. 1655 John Sergeant (1622–1707) converted to Catholicism from the Church of England after researching the history of the early Church. He was ordained to the priesthood and undertook a career as a controversialist against Protestantism, writing many works. This one is a Catholic answer to Henry Hammond's (1605-60) Of Schisme, and John Bramhall's (1594–1663) A Just Vindication of the Church of England from the Unjust Aspersion of Criminal Schism. Hammond and Bramhall were leading Anglican divines of the high-church party, and in attacking them Sergeant reveals the influence that that party still commanded, even at its lowest ebb under Cromwell. His argument is largely a defense of the Papacy against those who would assert the historical independence of the Church of England. => This is the sole edition of this important Recusant work. It is also a volume that shows such controvery was definitely not “dry”; for its presentation at our website, we photographed the start of Sergeant's explanation/defense of his personal animus against his antagonist, and also the “Stationer's” description of the polemical feast to come, this worked out as a menu or "Bill of Fare"! Provenance: On the recto of the second front fly-leaf is a presentation inscription: "For my honnord & best frind, Master John Bulteel." The most likely John Bulteel is the one who was created M.A. at Oxford in 1661, and later served as secretary to Edward, Earl of Clarendon. Contemporary mottled calf, with remnants of modest double gilt rules on covers; rubbed and joints open, front cover detached. Browning from turn-ins on fly-leaves, last leaves, and fore-edge of title-page, as well as moderately to a few signatures, with a little occasional light waterstaining; otherwise, the expectable degrees of age-toning and spotting only.

        VIRGINIA

      [Frankfurt, 1655. Minor dust soiling. Single vertical fold line through center. Very good. This edition of Smith's Virginia map, with German text, first appeared in Gottfriedt's NEWE WELT in 1655, after the 1612 original edition. A handsome edition of this famous map, it shows all of the Chesapeake Bay from the Virginia Capes north to the present Maryland-Pennsylvania line, the eastern shore, and the waters of the major Virginia and Maryland rivers from the James northward. In the upper left corner is a vignette of Powhatan in a hut, taken from De Bry, while along the right edge is a full-length portrait of an Indian with a long bow. Both illustrations appeared in the first state of the map. Smith's map of Virginia became the paramount cartographic reference for the early settlement of Virginia and the Chesapeake region. "One of the most important printed maps ever produced, Captain John Smith's representation of Virginia [is] based on his explorations of the Chesapeake Bay in 1607 and 1608...The accuracy and detail far surpassed any other depiction of North America at the time it was made. Smith's VIRGINIA served as the prototype for maps of the area for over fifty years" - Pritchard & Taliaferro (about an earlier state of the map). An attractive and, compared with the rare first state, accessible edition of this fundamental map.

        The burial ground at Ouderkerk near Amsterdam. Set of two etchings by Abraham Blooteling after Jacob van Ruisdael. [Amsterdam], 1670.

      Very good impressions of both etchings, only state. Fine set with wide margins. Around 1655 Jacob van Ruysdael made two romantic paintings and several drawings of the jewish burial ground at Ouderkerk aan den Amstel near Amsterdam. The place was bought in 1614 by the Sefardic jews of Amsterdam, the so-called 'marranen', who needed a place to bury their deceased in the jewish tradition (a 'Beth-Chajiem'). The variety and exuberant style of the tombs reflects the different backgrounds of the Sefardic jews in Amsterdam (Portugal, Spain, Italy), in contradiction with sober graveyards of the Dutch jews. The foreign atmosphere inspired Ruisdael and Blooteling to these two beautiful etchings, depicting three large tombs. The middle one - still to be seen at Ouderkerk - is the grave of 'chacham' Izak Uziel, born in Fez in Marocco, who came to Amsterdam in 1615. He had great influence on the jewish community in the city and was the teacher of a.o. the printer and publisher rabbi Menasseh Ben Israel. B0021.

      London: James Flesher for R. Royston 8vo (19 cm, 7.5"). A?-Z8Aa?-Zz8Aaa4; engr. t.-p., [46], 448, [8], 449?-690 (i.e., 746), [6 (index)] pp. (pagination incorrect); 1 fold. plt.. 1655 Second edition of the "Unum necessarium," following the first of 1653, followed by the first edition of the "Further Explication." Jeremy Taylor (1613?-67), a High Church divine and chaplain to Charles I, was well known as a theologian and one of the school of Caroline Divines who brilliantly systematized Anglican theology in the 17th century. The first of these present works caused him some difficulty, as some of its arguments were widely considered unorthodox and antidoctrinal; the Further Explication was Taylor's attempt to clarify his position. The engraved frontispiece by P. Lombart depicts Jesus in shepherd guise, and is followed by a title-page printed in red and black. An oversized, folding plate shows a contrite heart accompanied by scriptural figures and allegorical images; this is also signed, Lombart. Both works came off the press with incorrect pagination, the latter with apparent page count being thrown significantly off. Provenance: Front pastedown with armorial bookplate of Charles Grave Hudson. Contemporary speckled calf, framed in blind, spine with gilt-stamped leather title-label; leather cracked over joints and spine. Occasional pencilled bracketing.

        Iaponia Regnum, anno 1655, M.Martini, published by Blaeu J.

      Blaeu W.+J.,Atlases,Maps,Townboo - Coppermap, published by J. Blaeu Amsterdam, anno 1655, old coloured in outline, size of the map: 41,5 x 56,5 cm., little brwonish, little crack on upper margin. Korea being correctly drawn as a peninsula for the first time. This map was the standart map up to the 18 century. From M. Martini, "Novus Atlas Sinensis", an italian Jesuit, the first european Atlas of China and Japan. Reference: Map Collectors Circle, Nr. 36, 21: "The subdivisions of the Kingdom are shown by means of dotted lines; Korea being correctly drawn as a peninsula for the first time. This was to remain the standart form of Japan until the eighteenth century and although replaced by the maps of Reland and Kaempfer it is in its outline closer to the true shape of Japan than either of these or indeed any printed map before the nineteenth century. It was compiled by Father Martino Martini, an Italian Jesuit, and appears in Blaeu s Atlas Sinensis, the first European atlas of China. Of the two general maps one if of Japan. Father Martini (1614-1661) went to China as a young man and became the Superior at Hang-Chow. In 1651 he left for Rome but took three years on an eventful journey home. His arrival was described by Blaeu: "The Reverend Father Martinus Martinius comes from India, and brings with him the figurations and descriptions of the Empire of China. He insists that I print and publish these. Therefore i leave off all other things for the time being, in order to push forward this work ". After a short stay in Europe Martini returned to China and died in Hang-chow." [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Museum Wormianum seu Historia Rerum rariorum

      Tam Naturalium, quam Artificialium, tam Domesticarum, quam Exoticarum, quæ Hafniæ Danorum in ædibus Authoris servantur. Leiden: Johan Elzevier 1655. Med et dobbeltsidet kobberstik af Ole Worms museum, som det så ud kort før hans død, udført af hollænderen G. Wingendorph, samt talrige træsnit og nogle kobberstik i teksten, der viser udvalgte eksempler fra museets samlinger. Folio. [12] + 389 + [3] s. Indbundet i samtidigt helskind med guldtryk på ryggen. Kobberstukket portræt af Ole Worm mangler. Bindet lidt slidt og 2 blade let bruneret, ellers pænt og rent eksemplar med bred margin.. Ole Worm (1588-1654) er den nordiske oldforsknings grundlægger, banebrydende runolog og skaberen af det første større danske museum. I 1621 begynder Worm det samlerarbejde, som blev hans andet store livsværk, kendt gennem folioværket 'Museum Wormianum', der udkom året efter hans død, med en fortale af hans søn Willum Worm. Det var ikke Worms hensigt at udgive et katalog over sin samling, men at skrive en sammenhængende ræsonnerende redegørelse for genstandene, deres anvendelse og de videnskabelige problemer, som de kunne belyse. I indledningen påpeger han, at selvsyn er vigtigere end verbalundervisning - 'For at Ungdommen derved kunde drages op af Vildfarelsernes almindelige Morads og Mørke og hensættes i klart Dagslys og den skønneste Betragtning af Guds Værker'. Da havde han allerede i lang tid i sin medicinske undervisning benyttet genstande fra sin samling til demonstration. 'Museumshistorien', som Worm selv betegner værket, er delt i fire afsnit. Første del om fossiler er delt i tre underafsnit: Om jordarter, om stene og om metaller. Anden del er om de sjældnere planter; den er rigere illustreret end første del. Botaniker havde Worm været hele sit liv, men han interesserede sig mere for planternes anvendelighed end systematikken. Tredie del er om dyrene, og hermed afslutter forfatteren sin fremstilling af den naturvidenskabelige samling, som på Worms tid var det væsentlige og sigtet mod pædagogiske mål. Worm fortæller naturhistorie, som mange gode pædagoger har gjort det efter ham, og i den henseende peger hans virksomhed fremad mod oplysningstiden og rationalismen. Fjerde og sidste del omhandler de ikke-naturvidenskabelige genstande: de henmod trehundrede etnografiske og andre forarbejdede genstande, som man i dag kan se bl. a. i Nationalmuseet. [H.D. Schepelern]. Værket blev trykt i det berømte hollandske bogtrykkeri Elzevier, der blev grundlagt ca. 1580 af Lodewijk Elzevier. Sit højdepunkt nåede trykkeriet under Bonaventura (1583-1652) og Abraham Elzevier (1592-1652). Bogtrykkeriet udsendte talrige meget smukt trykte bøger, især er deres doudez-udgaver (små lommeformater) af de latinske klassikere berømte. Det Elzevierske firma havde udsalgssteder mange steder i Europa, bl. a. også på Børsen her i København.Bibl. Danica II, 159

Er selbst war niemals dort. Man könnte aber vermuten, daß er in China mittelbar oder unmittelbar mit japanischem Kartenmaterial in Berührung gekommen sei, das er in seiner Japankarte verwendet habe. Tatsächlich ist die Karte aber nur eine Verbesserung der vorher erschienener Karten nach Robert Dudley und Ingancio Moreira. Entgegen diesen Arbeiten wird aber Korea hier richtig als Halbinsel (und nicht als Insel) dargestellt. Glaubwürdige Informationen darüber dürfte Martino aber in China erhalten haben. - Gebräunt.

        LES ORACLES DIVERTISSANS, Où L'on Trouve la Décision Des Questions Les Plus Curieuses Pour se Resjouïr Dans Les Compagnies. Avec un Traité Très Récréatif Des Couleurs Aux Armoiries, Aux Livrées, & Aux Faveurs, & La Signification Des Plantes, Fleurs & Fruits...

      First published in 1647. Two works bound together. Among numerous topics for occult interest, entertainment and divination, Vulson de La Colombière offers here a 24- page language of flowers, a 17th century ancestor of the popular 19th century language of flowers genre. Preceding as it does the 18th century letters of Lady Mary Wortley Montague written from Turkey about this subject (often cited as a source for this interest) and mentioned by others, such as Aubry de La Mottraye, this work contributes to the discussion of the origins of such a "language" and to the role of flower symbolism in Western European culture. "Books aiming to elucidate a language specifically of flowers appeared in Paris not long after the end of the Napoleonic wars....Their background lay in the growth of the culture of flowers in France." (Goody, Jack THE CULTURE OF FLOWERS p. 234). The authors of these 19th century language of flowers books cited examples of flower signification found in antiquity and mythology, as well as in the sélam, but overlooked the few more recent works from modern Europe. "Au milieu du XVIIe siècle, un sieur Vulson de La Colombière, spécialisé dans la science de l'héraldique et sensible aux 'mystères' des couleurs, propose à son tour des "amusemens" de société praticables grâce à un dictionnaire de symboles de végétaux qu'il affirme être connus par tous." (Seguin, Jean-Pierre, "Les 'languges des fleurs' en France au XIX e siècle, et leurs archétypes aux XVIe et XVIIe siècles." in VIEUX PAPIER, p. 125.) But, says Seguin, in the art and literature of that period, the "clef de ces correspondances" was largely left undefined; he lists 3 works (1 in two editions) before the 18th century in his article. In this text, "Le Blazon et signification des arbres, herbes et fleurs" is simply arranged alphabetically (plant/ significance) and is followed by a five page explication, including discussion of a bouquet. For several other editions and locations see Zollinger, BIBLIOGRAPHIE DER SPIELBUCHER DES 15. BIS 18. JAHRHUNDERTS.Engraved frontispiece/ decorative title shows with wheel of fortune, contemporary figures and an exchange of a floral bouquet between two figures.Small 8vo (15 x 9 cm); engraved frontispiece + (viii) + (viii) + 71 ff numbered on rectos only + (1) (blank) + title page + 3-78 pp. + 1 blank.Contemporary full vellum, soiled, with wear and bumping at extremities, old ink library shelf letter and numbers on spine; minor warping of boards; engraved frontispiece/decorative title has penned name clipped or torn from bottom margin, but illustration is not affected; old pen code at bottom margin of title page; very slight faded damping in lower margins, only towards the rear; pages lightly dog-earred toward the back; rear free end sheet shows some insect damage at top and bottom edges, but it does not appear elsewhere.

Bound in contemporary vellum, title written in ink on spine and on lower edges; usual mild discoloration and light foxing on scattered leaves; several quires browned as usual. Generally a fine, wide-margined and fresh copy. First collected edition of Galileo&#39;s works, appearing only a year after his death and of great interest for his 17th-century reception: this was the edition in which Newton and later eminent scientists read their Galileo. Included here are not only most of the seminal pieces written and published over a lifetime, including the Starry Messenger of 1610, the first work of modern observational astronomy, but additional publications and letters by both supporters and antagonists. Together in one work they offer a veritable panorama of scientific activity in Italy during the first half of the seventeenth century, and are critical for the history of the formation of Galileo&#39;s text.The Opera contains many unpublished or little-known items provided to the editors by Vincenzo Viviani, Galileo&#39;s friend and disciple. Among them are a number of Galileo&#39;s hitherto unpublished letters and experiments and the La Bilancetta, his first scientific work, written in 1586. Both the Dialogo and the letter to Christina di Lorena were censored and are, therefore, omitted. A contemporary hand noted on the final flyleaf of Vol. 2, "La lettura de discorsi legati insieme è interdetta" ("The reading of the discourses bound together is forbidden.").* Cinti 132; Riccardi I.518-19.

      Bologna, HH. del Dozza, 1655. 4to. Later marbled boards. Gilt lettering to spine. Fronthinge weakening. Large, partlu uncut copy. 7,(1),156 pp. Many textfigs. and textdrawings, including 20 pages depicting the famous sunspot-observations. Internally clan and fine.. Scarce second edition, presumably as a SEPARATE ISSUE of the "Opere", 1655-56. In this work Galilei published for the first time his discovery of the Sunspots, and their explanation as contiguous, and he also here for the first time announced his acceptance of the Copernican system, leading to the Interdict of 1616."Galieo's Letters on Sunspots was published at Rome in 1613 under the auspices of the Lincean Academy. In this book Galileo spoke out decisively for the Copernican system for the first time in print. In the same book he found a place for his first published mention of the concept of conservation of angular momentum and an associated inertial concept. During its composition he had taken pains to determine the theological status of the idea of incorruptibility of the heavens, finding that this was regarded by churchmen as an Aristotelian rather than a Catholic dogma. But attacks against Galileo and his followers soon appeared in ecclesiastical quarters. These came to a head with a denunciation from the pulpit in Florence late in 1614."(DSB)

        The compleat clark, and scriveners guide Containing exact draughts and presidents of all manner of assurances and instruments now in use

      London: Pr. by T.R. for H. Twyford, N. Brookes, J. Place, & R. Wingate 4to (22.5 cm, 8.9"). Add. engr. t.-p., [8], 664, [16 (index)] pp.. 1655 Uncommon first edition of this guide to conveyancing for the 17th-century legal practitioner. The additional engraved title-page (signed by Fross) gives the title "The Conveyancers Light or Exact Presidents for All Manner of Instruments and Conveyances as They Have Occasionally Beene Composed by the Advice of Many Eminent Lawyers Both Antient & Moderne"; the bulk of the volume is dedicated to providing actual examples of documents such as "a Covenant to suffer a Recovery of Copy-hold Land by a Plaint in a Court Baron, after the order of a Recovery at the Common Law" (p. 321) as well as texts for wills, warrants, debt collections, "very good" mortgages, etc. ESTC and WorldCat locate only 10 U.S. institutional holdings of this useful and important reference work — now, also, an interesting work of social history. Evidence of Readership: An early hand has crossed out the "and Scriveners" line on the title-page and added "conveyancers," similarly altering the title at the head of the first chapter. Two instances of early inked annotations in outer margins and one additional text supplied in an early hand at the bottom of the last text page; one phrase lined through and a few underlined. Provenance: Front pastedown with bookplate of Eric Poole, almost certainly the law professor who published English Property Law. 19th-century half vellum and marbled paper–covered sides, spine with gilt-stamped red leather title-label and gilt-ruled raised bands; paper slightly faded and rubbed, back cover with paper repaired along spine and marbling pattern painted ( with impressive care) onto repair. Pages age-toned, with portions notably darkened and spotted; first and last sections with edges tattered, pinhole wormwork or slim tracking in lower margin of most leaves, and one leaf with short tear from upper margin touching header. Front pastedown with bookplate as above.

Piatti e fogli di guardia decorati, tagli spruzzati. All'antiporta del primo volume bel ritratto di Galileo inciso in ovale da F. Zucchi. Marche tipografiche ai frontespizi (quello del primo volume in rosso e nero) raffiguranti una fenice con il motto "Post fata resurgo". Cartigli, testatine, finalini e capilettera incisi. Numerose incisioni geometriche e tecniche nel testo. Al primo volume una tavola in grande formato raffigurante il "Compasso geometrico e militare". Eccellente esemplare, solo lievi tarlature ai dorsi. Il primo volume comprende una "Vita di Galilei", "le Operazioni del Compasso geometrico, e militare"; la "Difesa di Galileo contro alle calunnie e imposture di Baldassar Capra milanese", il "Discorso intorno alle cose, che stanno in su l'Acqua, o che in quella si muovono", "Della scienza meccanica", "La Bilancetta", il "Trattato del modo di misurar colla vista". Il secondo volume contiene il "Sidereus Nuncius", la "Istoria e dimostrazioni intorno alle macchie solari", "Il Saggiatore", il "Trattato della Sfera, o Cosmografia", oltre ad alcune lettere di Galileo a Leopoldo di Toscana, a Cristoforo Griemberger, a Monsignor Dini, a Pietro Bardi e a Paolo Gualdo. Nel terzo volume compaiono i "Dialoghi delle Scienze Nuove", le "Considerazioni sopra il Gioco de' Dadi", e lettere, tra gli altri, al padre Castelli e a Curzio Picchena. Nel quarto volume, infine, il "Dialogo dei massimi sistemi", la "Sententia Cardinalium in Galileum et abjuratio ejusdem, excerptae", e la "Dissertazione sovra il sistema del mondo degli antichi Ebrei", di Agostino Calmet. Si tratta della terza edizione delle opere complete di Galilei (le precedenti erano del 1655 e del 1718), ma la prima comprendente il "Dialogo dei massimi sistemi", l'opera che, dapprima approvata dalla Chiesa, condusse poi Galileo all'abiura dinnanzi al Tribunale dell'Inquisizione, e che non fu rimossa dall'"Index Librorum Prohibitorum" fino al 1835. L'Opera è a cura dell'abate Giuseppe Toaldo (Marostica, 1719 - 1798), docente di astronomia nell'ateneo patavino. La stampa fu resa possibile dalla autorizzazione concessa da Papa Benedetto XIV. Straordinaria "summa" del pensiero galileiano, assai rara da trovare completa ed in condizioni più che buone.

Engraved allegorical title-page with original hand-colour HEIGHTENED IN GOLD (creased, edges a bit frayed), 17 fine double-page engraved maps of Asia with original hand-colour in outline (2x1 with long tear crossing the text repaired in the margin at an early date, map of Japan a bit spotted as are some text leaves, one map with short closed tear, some lower margins with pale waterstains).

First and only Dutch edition of volume VI from Blaeu's six-volume "Nieue Atlas", depicting the Chinese empire and its fifteen provinces, and Japan. This "Novus Atlas Sinensis" was compiled by the Italian Jesuit Martino Martini, and is the first atlas of China produced in the western world. The Blaeu family firm was founded by Willem Janzoon Blaeu (1571-1638) in 1596. He was eventually joined by his sons, Cornelius (1616-1648) and Joannes (1596-1673). The firm became the most productive cartographic establishment in the Netherlands until it was destroyed by fire in 1672. The elder Blaeu initiated the great series of atlases that culminated in the "Atlas Maior". Koeman 2:521A.
