CARAMUEL Y LOBKOWITZ, Juan
Matthias Cosmerovius, Vienna 1655 - (19) ff including engraved frontispiece and 2 full-page engraved plates, 615 pp, (22) ff. Bound in contemporary stiff vellum with manuscript title on spine. Boards slightly bowed, two ex-libris stamps on half title, one or two leaves slightly toned, otherwise very clean and fresh, a very good copy. Exceedingly rare first and sole edition of this luxurious illustrated biography of Domingo de Jesús María (1559-1630), fifth General of the Discalced Carmelites. Composed by the great Spanish polymath Juan de Caramuel y Lobkowitz at the express behest of his Imperial employers, the work offers an over-the-top example of Hapsburg court hagiography, giving an exhaustive account of Domingo¿s life in a daunting 1129 numbered episodes, all thoroughly indexed! The work is an anomaly in the oeuvre of the polymath Caramuel, who was more at home in a diverse array of technical subjects, from architecture to cryptography to the logarithm, as he enumerates on the title-page, and whose reputation as a 17th c polymath was second only to Kircher. The work thus shows how holders of Imperial appointments, like Kepler in the preceding generation, were subject to the beck and call of the Emperor and his family and their religious or political interests. Domingo, who is illustrated in the present work clutching a crucifix at the head of the Imperial army in 1620, was a strident Counter-Reformation figure well known for his apostolic zeal --he co-founded the Propaganda Fide--, as well his precocious ability to work miracles, allegedly beginning in early childhood. … [Click Below for Full Description]

A few short tears along folds of plates (quite minor), a handful of marginal paper defects and flaws, some with early repairs, and a few pages browned or foxed as if the book was left open. Otherwise, internal contents are well-margined and quite fresh with clear type and clean, white pages, just about Fine. Bookplates of Charles F. Cox and George Oakley Fisher.& & Kircher was the most famous Egyptologist of his day and was a pioneer in deciphering hieroglyphics. While many of his "translations" were later found inaccurate after the discovery of the Rosetta Stone, his early work was important to those later scholars. Egyptologist Erik Iverson wrote: "It is therefore Kircher's incontestable merit that he was the first to have discovered the phonetic value of an Egyptian hieroglyph. From a humanistic as well as an intellectual point of view Egyptology may very well be proud of having Kircher as its founder." This approbation of his work softens the irony of the engraved title illustration showing Oedipus … [Click Below for Full Description]

Homer; edited by Corneli Schrevel [Schrevelius]
Amsterdam: Ex officinia Elzeviriana, 1655. Full Leather. Very Good binding. Important printing of Homer by the Elsevier Press. Engraved title for the Iliad [Volume I] portrait of Homer in medallion, with Achilles and Ulysses as soldiers standing guard, and with Elsevier';s engraved device. Elsevier broke new ground in scholarly publishing with this edition, printing the Greek and Latin parallel texts, with the Greek "scholia" underneath, rather like footnotes. The editor, Corneli Schrevelius [or Scrivener] who led the Latin School in Leiden, expresses his belief that this is the best edition. Two volumes bound together, in contemporary calf with heraldic device stamped in gilt, and later (probably 19th century) spine. Very Good binding.

Auroux. Leg. dell'epoca piena pelle. Dorso a nervi con titolo su frammento in pelle. Piatti inquadrati da filetto oro. Cuffie e cerniere restaurate. Leggero alone di umido al margine alto del volume. Importante raccolta delle opere del famoso medico e alchimista belga, raccolte e pubblicate dal figlio, François Mercure. La seconda parte, Opuscula Medica Inaudita, è divisa in quattro parti: I. de Lithiasi. II. de Febribis. III. de Humoribus Galeni. IV. de Peste. Jean Baptiste Van Helmont nacque a Bruxelles nel 1577. Studiò filosofia all'Università di Lovanio dove seguì i corsi di Martino del Rio sugli arcani della magia. Viaggiò attraverso l'Europa per istruirsi e, conosciuto un discepolo di Paracelso si entusiasmò per la chimica e l'alchimia. Dal 1605 consacrò i suoi studi alla Pirotecnia, la Medicina, l'Alchimia e la Filosofia. Autore di svariate opere, una di queste, De magnetica vulnerum curatione viene pubblicata a sua insaputa a Parigi nel 1621, suscitando la gelosia di alcuni medici tra cui François de Paz medico del Granduca, Thomas Fienus e Gerard de Villers, professori a Lovanio che, con le loro critiche attirarono l'attenzione dei teologi sul le sue teorie, considerate false e diaboliche. Nel 1625 l'Inquisizione spagnola istruì un procedimento contro Van Helmont, sospettato di essere un filosofo ermetico. Incarcerato, fu costretto a ritrattare le sue proposizioni.

EHRENSTÉEN, Edvard.)
Haag, 1655. 4:o. 8 s. Lagerfläckig. Liten fläck orsakande bokstavsförlust på s. 4. Häftad och oskuren med naggade råkanter. Ur Ericsbergs bibliotek. Klemming, Sveriges förhållanden, s. 116. Warmholtz 4513. Krzysztof Przyjemski, starosta i Bydgoszcz, hade beviljats audiens i svenska fältlägret vid Kolo och där hållit ett tal inför Karl X Gustav, en fredstrevare som lämnades helt obeaktad. Detta brev är ett svar på Przyjemskis tal. Talet och detta svar trycktes även tillsammans på tyska. Edvard Ehrenstéen (1620-1686) var svensk diplomat och ett lyckligt exempel på ståndsklättring i 1600-talets Sverige. Härstammandes från en fattig östgötsk prästsläkt, lyckades han genom Gustav II Adolfs instiftade stipendier studera i Uppsala. Efter tronskiftet 1654 startade hans diplomatiska karriär och han blev en av den svenska diplomatins främsta kännare av den samtida stormaktspolitiken. Han adlades 1657 och blev hovkansler 1674.

SYLVA y SOUSA, Antonio da.)
Stockholm, Johannis Janssonii, 1655. 12mo. (12),+ 768, 787-818,+ (1),+ (2, blanks); 96, 93-212, 211-528,+ (1) pp. Minor spotting. Contemporary vellum, handwrittten title on spine. From the library of Johan Henric Schröder, and from Ericsberg. Ink notations on front fly-leaf. Collijn sp. 905. Carlander III, 368ff. Antonio da Sylva y Sousa var portugisisk resident i Sverige åren 1653-60 och huvudsakligen känd som författare till denna bok. Endast fragment av hans beskickningshandlingar finns bevarade. Troligen var han beordrad att bevara drottning Kristinas vänskap för Portugal och att utveckla det kommersiella utbytet mellan länderna, framförallt det portugisiska saltet. Det nyligen självständiga Portugal var hårt trängt på Pyreneiska halvön. Sylva y Sousa blev också snart motarbetad i Stockholm av den spanska residenten Pimentel och Kristina blev mer och mer habsburgvänlig. I maj 1654 bröt hon oväntat, utan Rådets vetskap, med Portugal och dess kung Johan IV. Efter abdikationen återupprättade Karl X Gustav Sveriges och Portugals relationer och Sylva y Sousas ställning i Stockholm stärktes förmodligen. Historieprofessorn Johan Henrik Schröders (1791-1857) bibliotek, "fullt af gamla sällsynta svenska böcker", såldes på bokauktion i Uppsala efter tryckt förteckning. Enligt Henrik Klemming rådde auktionsdagen sådan snöyra i Uppsala att många, både anbud och spekulanter, inte kunde komma fram till auktionen i tid. Böckerna såldes ofta mycket billigt.

Det andra avtrycker dessutom Karl X Gustavs brev till Polen från den 20 september 1655. Comenius var, som en av ledarna av de Böhmiska bröderna, en av de främsta hyllarna av Karl X Gustav, och såg i dennes uppträdande i Polen ett uppfyllande av profetian om lejonet från Norden. Då det uppenbarligen inte hade varit Gustav II Adolf som var lejonet, så var det förstås Karl X Gustav som var det. Då denne 1655 marscherat in i Leszno (Lissa) hade glädjen hos de Böhmiska bröderna inte vetat några gränser och de hade hjälpt svenskarna på alla tänkbara sätt.

London: Richard Hodgkinsonne, 1655, 1661, & 1673. 3 volumes, folio, contemporary leather, modern rebacking in leather, new endsheets, illustrated with engraved pre title, some text illustrations and 108 plates many folding, [40], 1151; 3, [14], 2, 1057; [6], 378, 218, [379-392 first index in volume 3] pp. Leather scuffed in places, one plate missing top half, a second possibly missing bottom portion of plate, but image appears complete, another plate upside down, some soiling, foxing and normal aging, a few pages with tears, but not affecting text; overall nice set of a very rare first edition. William Dugdale (1605-1681) was born at the Shustoke rectory to an old Lancashire family, and was educated at the King Henry VIII School in Coventry. As a young man, he showed an inclination for antiquarian studies, and through a relationship with Sir Christopher Hatton was commissioned to make exact drafts of all the churches in England in 1641. After a visit to France in 1648 he continued his antiquarian studies in London, and collaborated with Richard Dodsworth on his Monasticon Anglicanum, which was published in 1655, 1661, and 1673. It has been reported that Dugdale himself sold copies to booksellers who passed them along to a small, but appreciative audience. The work provided a history of the various orders in England, and an account of the individual monasteries. While other major editions of this work were published in 1693, 1718 and 1846, because each volume was published separately, it is very difficult to find a complete set of the first edition.
