VAN HELMONT, Jean Baptiste
Lugduni, sumptibus Joannis Baptistae Devenet, 1655. 1655 Due tomi in un vol. in -folio, (12 cc.), pp. 487 (1 b.) - 192 pp. (30 cc. ultima b.). Elaborato frontespizio allegorico inciso in rame da N. 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. Morì … [Click Below for Full Description]

M. W. D. L. C. [Marc de Wilson de La Colombierè]; [Fulvio Pellegrino Morato]
La Haye: Chez Adrian Vlacq, 1655. Hardcover. Very Good. Contemporary full vellum binding, showing no snags or splits, darkened at the spine, soiled and mildly rubbed; small contemporary owner name at the very foot of the frontispiece partly excised (not affecting the plate itself); contents clean and tight throughout with no margin inscriptions and no worm or insect damage; also, no loose leaves. Size: small octavo (160mm x 115mm); pagination: engraved frontispiece, blank, title-page, 72; [ii], 78. Part One, dated 1655 at the title-page, contains a sort of game involving questions for an 'oracle', presumably the same oracle depicted in the engraved frontispiece, which seems to be a fortune wheel. Part Two, paginated separately, has its own title-page, dated 1664, deals with the heraldic and mystical role of colours, blazons and symbols, etc. A scarce work in any condition and very scarce in sound very good order, as is this copy.

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.

Auf den ersten Blick wirkt die Handschrift wie ein anonyme Arbeit, die so aufgebaut ist, wie viele andere Publikationen aus der zweiten Hälfte des 17. Jahrhunderts : Logik, Physik, Metaphysik / Theologie. (Vergl. Louis de Lesclache : La Philosophie morale, divisee en quatre parties, 1655; Pierre-Sylvain Regis : Systeme de Philosophie, contenant la logique, la metaphysique, la physique et la morale, 1690; Henri Lelevel : La Philosophie moderne, ... contenant la Logique, la metaphysique, la morale, et la physique, 1698; Pierre du Moulin : La philosophie divisee en 3 parties ..., 1671). Bei genauerer Betrachtung ergibt sich aber, daß der erste Teil eine ungemein präzise Kopie der 'Logique ou l'Art de Penser' von Arnauld und Nicole ist. Der zweite Teil ist eine ebenso peinlich exakte Kopie von Rohaults 'Traite de Physique' mit der genauen Wiedergabe der Abbildungen des Originals.

Båda trycken av Comeniusverket inleds med en dedikationsvers av Václav Theodor Budovec z Budova, en schlesisk godsägare hos vilken Comenius under en tid bodde. 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.

Dugdale, Sir William
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. It is difficult to dete … [Click Below for Full Description]

Magnifico frontis figurato inciso da Filippo Sadeler, con 47(di 48) tavv. f.t. finemente incise in rame da O. Fialetti, con battaglie, fortezze, strumenti bellici ecc. Opera insigne e uno dei più bei figurati del '600 italiano, che contiene quanto di meglio era conosciuto all' epoca in fatto di fortificazioni. L' autore (1579-1638) nativo di Crema, fu uno dei più grandi ingegneri militari del suo tempo, ricco di pratica e di cultura, morì barbaramente trucidato e si pensa per l' invidia che suscitò il suo singolare ingegno. Splendida edizione, la stessa della prima del 1624, in quanto come spiega Riccardi e Marini "Biblioteca Di Fortificazioni" le edizioni del 1630 e 1655 hanno solo al frontis le date e i tipografi cambiati, ottenuti raschiando la lastra di rame. Molto rara, manca alle bibliografie che di seguito elenchiamo e alle quali rimandiamo per confronti: Bm. Stc XVII Cent. Italian, Gamba, Cokle, Choix, Piantanida, Pollak, e michel-Michel.

Contemporary mottled calf, compartments of spine decorated in gilt, title gilt-stamped on morocco label, sides within gilt line border; tailend of spine and corners lightly worn; a few isolated wormholes. A beautifully illustrated treatise on fortification by Francesco Tensini (c1580-1630) of Cremona, a military engineer in the service of the Elector Maximilian of Bavaria. The first part treats military architecture, suitable locations, and fortification systems; in chapter 32, the author discussing a similar method described by Colonel Alexander von Groote in a book published 1617, accuses his former comrade-in-arms of plagiarism. The second and third parts deal respectively with modes of defence and attack. The distinguishing feature of this beautifully illustrated book are the exceptionally fine plates by Odoardo Fialetti (1573-1638), a pupil of Tintoretto at Venice,which are splendid examples of Venetian book art: they depict a variety of fortification systems, formations for defence and attack, siege craft, strategic calculations for artillery, and ballistic devices; many have charming manner … [Click Below for Full Description]

Antwerp, Jérôme & Jean Baptiste Verdussen, 1655. 4to. [10]f, including engraved title + 792pp. Roman & Italic letter; with 102 large engraved emblems by Johann Sadeler and a variety of ornamental woodcut tail-pieces at chapter endings. Near-contemporary sprinkled calf, spine decorated in gilt;joints restored. A discourse on how to become an ideal Christian ruler in dealings with his subjects and foreign governments, conceived as a schoolbook for the Infante Balthasar, son of Philip IV of Spain, who died too young to profit from its wisdom. Each chapter is illustrated with an allegorical device bearing on the subject matter, beginning with Hercules in his cradle strangling the serpents, and ending with a macabre emblem of a skull covered with a spider's web on a cracked coffin with an upturned crown and discarded sceptre. A fine engraving of a printing press adorns the preface. The book enjoyed immense popularity in the 17th century. Diego de Saavedra Fajardo (1584-1648) studied law at Salamanca, became a Knight of Santiago at the age of 22, and served the Spanish government in important diplomatic missions, finally as a member of the Council of the Indies in 1646.

The British Seize Jamaica; a fascinating account of the British loss at Hispaniola and their subsequent victory in Jamaica. 1655. London. In 4to (174 mm x 130 mm). 27. In a simple 19th century cloth and marbled boards, worn and rubbed. Title stained, with loss to upper outer margin, affecting four characters of text, foxing throughout, contemporary ink notations on verso of final leaf, else fine. First edition. Remarkably rare, only a few copies have appeared at auction in the last years. The pamphlet details the expedition commanded by Admiral Penn, father of William Penn, and General Venables -under Cromwell's orders- to seize the Spanish West-India islands, outlining the events of Britain's unsuccessful naval attacks on Hispaniola and questions the motivations of the expedition. The author, citing several reasons for failure, specifically mentions the severe heat and the ill-preparation of the soldiers with Spanish lances: "The Spaniards also (by often use and practice) become more expert in the use of these weapons." Following the ill-fated expedition -shameful defeat of Cromwell's strong army at Hispaniola on April 25, 1655-, the British fleet turned their attention to Jamaica, with Penn commanding the Swiftsure, and landed on the 10th of May. The author notes the paucity of Spanish defenders upon their arrival: "onely three or four small and slight Brest-workes, with some few Guns, and seeing so numerous an Army in readiness to Land, made not many shot, but fled in hast to the town of Oristano....". By the 17th, the entire island surrendered, and only one month later, … [Click Below for Full Description]

Frickaert, 1655. First Antwerp edition in Latin. Gonzalez de Mendoza (1545-1618) was sent by Philip II of Spain on an embassy to the Emperor of China. Combined with his own travel experiences notes are made by the missionaries Martin de Herrada and Hieronymus Marin on their voyages to China in 1575 and 1579. This is followed by an account of another missionary journey to China, derived mainly by Martin de Rada. The observations of the travellers refer not only to China, but to those countries through which they passed on their way, and since all expeditions to China at that time used Manila as a base, there is a lengthy account of the Philippines. Besides its interest as an Americanum with ref. to Peru on unn. p. 3, Mexico & Magellan on p. 5 in part 2, and Havana, Jamaica & Santo Domingo, the work contains also descriptions of Japan and other places. According to Pardo de Tavera, this was the first book printed in Europe to mention the then recently founded city of Manila. The work first appeared in Rome in 1585, printed in Spanish ("Historia de las cosas mas nobles...del gran reyno de la China"), and is the first printed history on China written by an European. But the first Madrid printing was not until 1586, and at this time an account was inserted of the Espejo expedition to New Mexico, and it is often erroneously assumed that all editions contain this mention, but as all the Ital … [Click Below for Full Description]

Gassendi, Pierre (1592-1655)
Hagae-Comitum: Ex Typographia Adriani Vlaco, 1655. Editio secunda auctior et correctior. Hard cover. Very Good/The real-life Canon of Digne from Umberto Eco's Island of the Day Before, Pierre Gassendi deserves high ranking in the 17th-century Republic of Letters. The life of Tycho Brahe--a hero of scientific method-- is "arguably the oldest full biography of a scientist," according to Thomas Soderqvist (The history and poetics of scientific biography, 2007). It is, however, also very much a history of astronomy. It is followed by lives of other science heroes: Copernicus, Puerbach and Regiomontanus. These were apparently first published in 1653, while the biography of Tycho Brahe was added in 1654, and is here reissued with a fresh title page and corrected text.. Small quarto (21 cm); Extra printed title page, xl, 373, [11] pages, and two full-page engraved portraits of Tycho Brahe and Copernicus. Extra title page printed in red and black, dated 1655. Bound in contemporary vellum with gilt arms of the Society of Writers to the Signet. Some wear; covers dusty; minor foxing, etc. Writers to the Signet ownership inscription on title page. Generally a sound, unsophisticated copy. Reference: Houzeau & Lancaster 6190 and 7788.

"Indeed Craig was the first systematic writer on law in Scotland. The Jus Feudale is not a mere textbook of the law of land rights, but is a learned disquisition upon a great social system. The opening chapters are devoted to an examination of the sources of law in general, and trace the history and development of the Civil, Canon and Feudal laws. If Craig had accomplished no more than that he would have been entitled to a foremost place amongst our jurists, for unquestionably the form of his book not only exemplified th … [Click Below for Full Description]
