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.

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.

PORTER, T[homas]
London,: Printed & sould by Robt. Walton at the Rose & Crowne at the West end of St. Paules, [c1655]. London,: Printed & sould by Robt. Walton at the Rose & Crowne at the West end of St. Paules,, [c1655].. and the manner of their Streets: With the Names of the Chiefest of them Written at Length and Numbers set in the rest in sted of Names The which Names are at Length in the Table with Numbers how to Guide them Readily So that it is a ready Helpe or Guide to direct Countrey-men and strangers to finde the nearest way frome one place to another. by T. Porter. Engraved plan printed on two sheets joined, trimmed to neatline. The map is probably based upon a copy of the 'Ryther' map, now in the Bodleian Library, which has an extension - in pen and ink - westwards to Pall Mall and Lambeth House. The omission of the Stuart's royal coat-of-arms would suggest that the map was printed at some point in the 1650s. Howgego suggests a date of 1655, as the imprint upon the map is the same as present in Thomas Porter's 'New Book of Maps...' published in 1655. To the upper left is the long title, set within an elaborate title cartouche. In the title, the wish is expressed that the map "is a ready helpe or Guide to direct Countrey-men and Strangers to finde the nearest way from one place to another". To the right are the St George's Cross, the Harp of Ireland, and the Cross of St. Andrew. Further right, the City's arms are flanked by personifications of Justice and Prudence, and a list important "Streets, Places, Hills, Lanes, and Allies (sic) which for want of room could not be written".

Bon état de la reliure, Auréole d'une mouillure présente sur tout l'ouvrage, les derniers cahiers sont un peu lâche. Par distraction de bel esprit, Jacques Savary, de Caen (1606-1669), composa ce poème sur la chasse du lièvre d'après les préceptes de Du Fouilloux. Encouragé par le succés, Savary mit plus tard en vers Latin les règles de la chasse du renard et du blaireau (1658), du cerf, du chevreuil, du sanglier, et du loup. (cf Thiébaud).

Very rare first edition presenting an inset map of the Holy Land.Contemporary binding in full brown calf, back with five nerves adorned with double nets and golden florets, double golden thread on the boards, all flecks speckled."Singular book, and once very much sought after, in which the author (who does not care to name himself, but we know to be Isaac La Peyrère) claims to demonstrate, by the authority of St. Paul, that he has existed before Adam [...] The volume was condemned from its appearance to be burned by the hand of the executioner.The author himself, although attached to the house of the Prince de Condé, escaped persecution that by going to Rome to throw himself at the feet of the Pope, and to abjure the Protestant faith. s. n.

Bologna, 1655-1656. 2 vols, recent full speckled calf, gilt rosettes and rules at spine, gilt red morocco lettering piece, all edges with early yellow wash. Vol 1: [28], 48, 48, [8], 160, [4], 68, 127, [4], 264, 43 pp., including engraved frontis. by Stephano Della Bella and engraved portrait of Galileo by F. Villamoena, folding plate of compass. Vol. 2:[2], 60, [16], 104, [4], 105-156, 48, [8], 179, [1], [2], 53-106, [2], 103-126, [8], 238 (i.e. 242), [6] both vols. with numerous diagrams, woodcut initials, headpieces and tailpieces. Early marginalia on two pages in vol. 2. First edition of the first collected works of the father of modern physics, edited by Carlo Manolessi. These volumes are the fruit of the vast efforts made after Galileo's death to gather and preserve his work. Much of the content was compiled by his friend and student, Vincenzio Viviani, and includes all of Galileo's major writings (except of course the Diologo, which was banned for its heretical comparison of the Copernican and Ptolomaic systems, and did not appear in the Opere until 1744). Viviani had planned to publish the collected works on his own, but was unable to realize his ambition, and the task fell to Manolessi. The second volume contains important selections from Galileo's correspondences, as well as writings on Galileo by others. Some never before published writings include Galileo's letter to Padre Grembergero and his treatise on the hydrostatic balance, more commonly known as "la Bilancetta." The Opere is a testament to the profundity, both scientific and cultural, of Galileo's life and … [Click Below for Full Description]

LUCIEN DE SAMOSATE - PERROT D'ABLANCOURT (Nicolas).
A Paris, chez Augustin Courbé, 1655. 2 vols. in-4. Reliure plein veau brun de l'époque, dos à nerfs orné de caissons à fleurons dorés, titre doré, tranches mouchetées. (coins usés, petite accident à une coiffe sup. avec petit manque, très petites usures à un plat) Bon exemplaire. Seconde édition parue un an après l'originale. Rhéteur et satiriste anatolien de langue grecque, Lucien de Samosate (ca 120-ca 180) est considéré comme l’un des pères de l’esprit critique et de la libre pensée. Il s’attacha dans ses œuvres à démonter en particulier toutes sortes d’impostures magico-religieuses, au nombre desquelles il plaçait le christianisme. Son Histoire véritable, dans laquelle le personnage voyage sur la lune, influença Cyrano de Bergerac lorsqu’il écrivit son Histoire comique des États et Empires de la Lune, ainsi que Voltaire pour Micromégas. Pour d'Ablancourt, une traduction est une oeuvre originale. Il ne craint pas de supprimer, d'ajouter, de modifier. A ce propos, il écrit dans son Epistre : "Comme dans les beaux visages il y a toujours quelque chose qu'on voudroit qui n'y fust pas ; aussi dans les meilleurs Autheurs, il y a des endroits qu'il faut retoucher ou éclaircir, particulierement quand les choses ne sont faites que pour le plaisir (.). Je ne m'attache donc pas toujours aux paroles ni aux pensées de cet Autheur ; et demeurant dans son but, j'agence les choses à nostre air et à nostre façon. Cela n'est pas proprement de la Traduction ; mais cela vaut mieux que la Traduction". [Attributes: Hard Cover]

[NOTE: This copy is lacking the first leaf which includes an Imprimatur] Rarely do early printed Bible concordances appear out of original compilation. Usually the author is copying an earlier work and giving no credit to the original author/compiler who, in turn, probably copied their work. Starnes, Robert Estienne's Influence on Lexicography (Univ of Texas, 1963) provides a helpful technique for detecting the original sources of early modern Bible concordances. Sternes investigated entries for selected words observing the exact Biblical quotation chosen. Particularly, he noted the beginning and ending words of the verse citations, which is an editorial choice as rarely are whole verses used in concordances due to space limitations. The technique doesn't help with Wickens so much since he provides only chapter:verse citations, with no phrases. However, it's probably safe to assume that he used the most commonly cited Clement Cotton's 1631 A Complete Concordance of the whole Bible, and its revisions by Samuel Newman publishe … [Click Below for Full Description]

Usually the author is copying an earlier work and giving no credit to the original author/compiler who, in turn, probably copied their work. Starnes, Robert Estienne's Influence on Lexicography (Univ of Texas, 1963) provides a helpful technique for detecting the original sources of early modern Bible concordances. Sternes investigated entries for selected words observing the exact Biblical quotation chosen. Particularly, he noted the beginning and ending words of the verse citations, which is an editorial choice as rarely are whole verses used in concordances due to space limitations. The technique doesn't help with Wickens so much since he provides only chapter:verse citations, with no phrases. However, it's probably safe to assume that he used the most commonly cited Clement Cotton's 1631 A Complete Concordance of the whole Bible, and its revisions by Samuel Newman publishe … [Click Below for Full Description]

CAMOENS, Luis de.
London: Humphrey Moseley, 1655. London: Humphrey Moseley,, 1655. or Portugals Historicall Poem: written In the Portingall Language; and Now newly put into English by Richard Fanshaw Esq. Folio (304 x 194 mm). Contemporary English mottled calf, red morocco spine label, spine compartments fully gilt, decorative gilt roll to board edges. Engraved frontispiece portrait of Camoens with verses, 2 engraved portraits (of Prince Henry of Portugal, just shaved at fore margin, and of Vasco da Gama by Cross). Neat repair to spine ends, short split to frontispiece at plate mark at lower inner corner, occasional faint waterstain at foot, a few trivial blemishes, but a very good copy, the paper generally clean, strong, and well-margined. First edition in English of Os Lusíadas (1572), the epic poem describing Portugal's rise from obscurity to greatness. Camões based his Virgilian epic around Vasco da Gama's discovery of the sea route from Europe to India via the Cape of Good Hope in 1497-8, coloured by his own experiences during the 14 years he spent in the East (1553-67), including wintering on Hormuz Island, where, Burton argues in Camoens: His Life and his Lusiads, he was exposed to Persian literature. Boies Penrose calls The Luciad "one of the noblest epics" and "the national poem par excellence and the supreme epic of Portugal's conquests in the East" (Travel and Discovery in the Renaissance 1420-1620, New York, 1962, pp. 92 and 359). The English translator, Sir Richard Fanshawe, part of the grouping often called the cavalier poets, was an accomplished linguist, who spent a good d … [Click Below for Full Description]
