        ASTRONOMIA GEOMETRICA: UBI Methodus proponitur qua Primariorum Planetarum Astronomia sive Elliptica Circularis possit Geometrice absolvi. OPUS, Astronomis hactenus desideratum

      London: Jacob Flesher, 1656. FIRST EDITION. Hardcover. Very good antiquarian condition. Octavo, 184 x 123 x 24 mm (binding), 180 x 121 x 20 mm (text block). Collation: [+]8 (++)8, B-N8, O4, P1 (Errata leaf, lacking in this copy as commonly). Pagination: [32], 74, 68, 57 pp. Bound in contemporary sprinkled calf. Caps chipped, head joints starting, corners bumped. Interior: Title with small chip out of fore margin, damp-staining to tail margin of first gathering and last two gatherings. Preserved in a folding cloth protective case. Only edition of this important illustrated astronomical text, An attractive volume, well printed with scores of typographic diagrams and one folding plate. Seth Ward, English mathematician, autodidact, and astronomer, here expands upon Kepler's Second Law of Planetary Motion, one of three fundamental laws of astronomy and physics which is of threefold significance: 1). It describes elliptical orbits with the Sun at one of two foci; 2). Dictates equal areas and equal time intervals swept out by a rotating line segment, and 3). States that the square of the orbital period of a body is proportional to the cube of the semi-major axis of its orbit. The Astronomia Geometrica was essentially Ward's second, and more complete, response to Ismail Boulliau's "Astronomia Philolaica" (Paris: 1645), in which Boulliau attempted to remove some of the notorious difficulties that Kepler's Second Law had presented to astronomers in the thirty-six years since its introduction to science. But Boulliau, in his work, only succeeded in making matters more confusing. He imagined cones of sorts, and pictured planets moving about axes central to these cones. In the present work Ward remarked that this was like imagining a body moving in an "elliptical orbit with uniform angular velocity about the empty focus of the ellipse, the Sun being at the other focus" (Source: ODNB). Seth Ward (1617-1689), Bishop of Salisbury, was a founder member of the Royal Society, and in 1649 was appointed Savilian professor of astronomy at Oxford University earning his reputation with his theory of planetary motion which he expounded in "Astronomica." Ward's work was highly influential, especially among the next generation of English and Continental astronomers, who would have had to have struggled with trial and error and tedious approximation using Kepler's original formulae.

        A Treatise of the Passions and Faculties of the Soul of Man. With the several Dignities and Corruptions thereunto belonging.

      For Robert Bostock 1656 - KATHERINE BLOUNT'S COPY, with her inscription 'Given me by Sr. Thomas = Pope Blount, July ye 10th, 1696' on the front free endpaper and another inscription on the verso of the same leaf 'Omne sulit punctum qui miscuit utile Dulci', title within double ruled borders and lightly soiled, occasional damp-staining, pp. [18], 553, small 4to, contemporary sheep, flat spine, later red morocco label with gilt lettering, worn at head and upper joint with tear at foot, cracked but still strong, good. The author of this treatise, which was first published in 1640 was known as one of the leading moderates of the time. He was also Bishop of Norwich and had close connections with Oxford, having matriculated at Merton. In August 1646 Reynolds was one of the preachers sent to Oxford by parliament to prepare the way for reform of the university, and in May 1647 he was appointed one of the visitors to the university. On 12 April 1648 he was made DD, vice-chancellor, and dean of Christ Church. The work is inscribed as having been given by Sir Thomas Pope Blount, First Baronet, writer and politician, who died in 1697, possibly to one of his nine daughters. The quotation, also in a contemporary hand, is from Horace's 'Ars Poetica' and translates: 'He wins every hand who mingles profit with pleasure, by delighting and instructing the reader at the same time'.

        The Common-wealth of Oceana

      London : Printed by J. Streater for Livewell Chapman 1656 - Folio. First edition, Streater variant. [12], 239, [1], 255-274, 175-210, [2] p. Later brown leather, modern red leather spine label, marbled endpapers, title page printed in red and black. Restoration to joints and hinges. No frontis, as is standard. Toning, foxing and browning to pages. Contemporary ink corrections to text, figure notations to last blank page., motto to title page of "Libertas optima rerum" and last page of text of "Sic transit gloria mundi." Landmark work on political philosophy. The Commonwealth of Oceana, which was seized at Cromwell's order and was allowed to be printed in 1656 through the intervention of Cromwell's daughter. Oceana calls for a government based on "the supremacy of reason over passion, which makes the true commonwealth an empire of laws, not of man" (Coker, 499-500). Harrington's ideal state was were a legislative body proposed laws, the people ratified them, and a magistracy enforced them. Harrington inexplicably returned classical republicanism to England where it would plant it seeds in America soon after: It was in America that Harrington's influence was strongest. The written constitution, the unlimited use of elective principle and the separation of powers are all points which may have been derived directly from the Oceana, while all the minor points seem to have been first formulated by (him). His influence is best seen in the early constitutions of the proprietary colonies, Carolina, New Jersey, Pennsylvania (Encyclopedia of the Social Sciences). Other than Utopia, [Oceana] is perhaps the most famous attempt at envisioning a model commonwealth (Pforzheimer 449). Provence: From the library of John Linzee Snelling.

      1656 - A New Departure for the Abridgment Sheppard, William [fl. 1660]. An Epitome of All the Common & Statute Laws of This Nation Now in Force: Wherein More than Fifteen Hundred of the Hardest Words or Terms of the Law are Explained; And All of the Most Useful and Profitable Heads or Titles of the Law by Way of Common Place, Largely, Plainly, and Methodically Handled. With an Alphabetical Table. London: Printed for W. Lee, D. Pakeman [et al.], 1656. [xxiv], 1131, [1] pp. Folio (11-1/4" x 7-1/2"). Recent period-style quarter morocco over marbled boards, early hand-lettered title to fore-edge of text block, existing front pastedown retained, other endleaves renewed. Moderate toning, somewhat heavier in places, occasional faint dampstaining, light soiling and some edgewear to title page. Owner signature, "Edw: Morgan/ Lincolns Inn" to front pastedown, brief annotations in same hand to title page and a few other places. * First edition. Sheppard's Epitome marked a significant change in the nature of abridgments. Unlike other examples, which are collections of notes of cases and statutes arranged loosely under headings and sub- headings, Sheppard's is comprised of entries on all branches of the law. Dedicated to Oliver Cromwell, the Epitome is divided into 170 chapters and arranged alphabetically from "Acceptance" to "Words." It was inspired, at least in part, to the reforming spirit of the Commonwealth. Notable works that followed Sheppard's example, and went on to inspire the modern legal encyclopedia, are Bacon's Abridgement and Comyn's Digest. English Short-Title Catalogue R10939.

"The Lettres provinciales (Provincial letters) are a series of eighteen letters written by French philosopher and theologian Blaise Pascal under the pseudonym Louis de Montalte. Written in the midst of the formulary controversy between the Jansenists and the Jesuits, they are a defense of the Jansenist Antoine Arnauld from Port-Royal-des-Champs, a friend of Pascal who in 1656 was condemned by the Faculté de Théologie at the Sorbonne in Paris for views that were claimed to be heretical. The First letter is dated January 23, 1656 and the Eighteenth March 24, 1657. A fragmentary Nineteenth letter is frequently included with the other eighteen. In these letters, Pascal humorously attacked casuistry, a rhetorical method often used by Jesuit theologians, and accused Jesuits of moral laxity. Being quickly forced underground while writing the Provincial Letters, Pascal pretended they were reports from a Parisian to a friend in the provinces, on the moral and theological issues then exciting the intellectual and religious circles in the capital. In the letters, Pascal's tone combines the fervor of a convert with the wit and polish of a man of the world. Their style meant that, quite apart from their religious influence, the Provincial Letters were popular as a literary work. Adding to that popularity was Pascal's use of humor, mockery, and satire in his arguments. The letters also influenced the prose of later French writers like Voltaire and Jean-Jacques Rousseau. Brilliantly written by Pascal, the Provincial Letters would not have been possible without the work of theologians from Port-Royal; indeed, most of the arguments Pascal deployed were already to be found in Arnauld's Théologie morale des Jésuites, something which led the Jesuit Nicolas Caussin to reply to Pascal's perceived libel. Pascal's main source on Jesuit casuistry was Antonio Escobar's Summula casuum conscientiae (1627), several propositions of which would be later condemned by Pope Innocent XI. Paradoxically, the Provincial Letters were both a success and a defeat: a defeat, on the political and theological level, and a success on the moral level. Thus, King Louis XIV ordered that the book be shredded and burnt in 1660. The final letter from Pascal, in 1657, had defied the Pope himself, provoking Alexander VII to condemn the letters. But that didn't stop most of educated France from reading them. Moreover, even Pope Alexander, while publicly opposing them, nonetheless was persuaded by Pascal's arguments. Just a few years later (1665-66, and then 1679), Alexander condemned ‘laxity’ in the church and ordered a revision of casuistical texts" (Wikipedia, partly after PMM).

        Payment receipt for (Sir) John Gell, made out and signed by William Humble. [London], 10. VI. 1656.

      1656. 1f. Oblong 8vo (c. 240:84 mm). Blank form filled in in ink, with papered seal. Payment receipt for the fifth installment for one of the earliest works in British printing history published by subscription, according to Dibdin (I, 23) "the first book ever published in that manner in England": "Received this [10th] day of [June] in the year of our Lord God [1656] of [Jn. Gell Esq.] the summe of [two Pounds] being the [fourth] payment of [ten pounds] by him subscribed or promised, towards the printing of the Bible in the Original & other learned Languages: Witness my hand and seal, the day and the year above written". The Bible edition for which Gell was eventually to pay 10 pounds is the Polyglot Bible edited by Brian Walton (1660-61), "the most accurate and best equipped of the great Polyglots" (Darlow/Moule, 23). The Oxford-educated orientalist Walton drew up a scheme for the project as early as 1847: "[H]aving secured the approval of the Bishops of London, Ely, Salisbury, Rochester, Lincoln, and Exeter, in 1652 he invited subscriptions for the forthcoming Bible, and entrusted the funds to the management of a worthy London citizen, William Humble. This polyglot was one of the earliest publications printed by subscription in England" (ibid., 23f.). The "worthy London citizen" Humble, who administrated the subscription payments and in whose hand the present receipt is filled in, is in all likelihood the London bookseller of that name, whose shop "The White Horse" operated in Pope's Head Alley until 1659 (cf. Plomer, Dict. of booksellers & printers). - Printing commenced in 1653, and the first complete copies were issued in 1658, "though some copies were not issued till after the Restoration, 29 May 1660" (ibid., 24). As a Protestant theological work, the Bible was put on the 'Index Librorum Prohibitorum' as early as 1663, although it "could only be used by specialists, and these could hardly do without it" (cf. Reusch II, 119). Richard Simon admitted in 1692 that it "was praised by all Catholics, even in Rome" (cf. Reusch II, 125). In his 1899 DNB article on Walton, the great orientalist D. S. Margoliouth assesses the merits of the edition: "While the Polyglot was justly regarded at the time of its appearance as an honourable monument of the vitality of the church of England at a period of extreme depression, and, from its practical arrangement, has been of the greatest use to biblical students, with whom, having never been superseded, it still commands a high price, it would also seem to have been a most successful commercial speculation. Though not absolutely the first book printed by subscription in England, it was one of the earliest, and, as has been seen, liberal support was given the undertaking from the commencement; and whereas the price paid by subscription was 10 l., other purchasers probably paid far more; in a letter to John Buxtorf the younger at Basle, Walton puts the price at 50 l." (XX, 727). - Somewhat wrinkled and with minimal damage to the edges (some touching text).

The earlier maps are extremely ornate, hand coloured and detailed plans with reference keys, all mounted on linen, 1656 or a little later. The later sequence of maps is surveyed for Jacob Banks [Bancks], Esq and dated 1734, on vellum and comprises field outlines and perhaps serves as an accompanying key to the earlier maps. 1.

The Milton Abbas estate was in the hands of the Tregonwell Family from the time of the Dissolution of the Monasteries and passed to John Tregonwell IV sometime during the seventeenth century. It seems likely that the first series of plans was produced on his death when the estate was passed on to his son John Tregonwell V. He died without a male heir in 1696 and his daughter married Sir Jacob Bancks, nephew to the Swedish ambassador. On Bancks' death in 1724 the estate was inherited by his second son, also called Jacob, who began extensive rebuilding and renovation. It would be reasonable to assume that he also undertook the new survey of his estates, which feature here, based on the earlier survey. On his death in 1737 there was a fifteen year dispute between rival Bancks and Tregonwell claimants and the estate was sold in 1752 to Joseph Damer, later to become Lord Milton, then the Duke of Dorchester. The grounds of the Abbey itself were later landscaped by Capability Brown, and much of the original village was demolished and relocated. Full eighteenth century mottled calf, worn, but sound.

         Le Canada, ou Nouvelle France.

      Paris Pierre Mariette 1656 398 x 540 mm. Carte très importante pour la cartographie des Grands Lacs. C'est la première carte à représenter les cinq grands lacs canadiens. C'est également la première fois que sont utilisés les noms de Lac Supérieur, Lac Ontario et Lac Erié, également appelé du Chat en référence aux Indiens habitant la région. Les régions des Grands Lacs et du Saint-Laurent sont très détaillées, les villes de Montreal et de Quebec sont nommées. Nicolas Sanson semble s'être inspiré d'une carte aujourd'hui perdue, établie par le père jésuite Chaumonat, qui avait voyagé au nord du Lac Erie en 1640 et 1641. Etat 1. Reconnu comme le fondateur de la cartographie française, Nicolas Sanson, le premier de cette célèbre famille de cartographes, quitta sa ville natale d'Abbeville pour Paris, où il rencontra Richelieu en 1627. Ce dernier, très impressionné par son oeuvre cartographique, le présenta au roi Louis XIII qui le nomma Géographe Ordinaire du Roi. Il fut le premier, en France, à concevoir un atlas mondial et publia près de trois cents cartes. Bel exemplaire aux contours aquarellés à l'époque. Burden, 318.

Un frontispice par Mellan et un portrait de Champaigne gravé par Nanteuil (celui-ci a été doublé dans les marges de papier ancien). Les nouvelles oeuvres paraîtront pour la première fois en 1658. Reliure en pleine basane brune mouchetée d'époque. Dos à nerfs richement orné, roulette en queue et tête. Pièce de titre en maroquin brun. Roulette sur les coupes. Coiffes très adroitement restaurées. Frottements d'usage. Bel exemplaire. Voiture (1597-1648) fut toute sa vie un galant et un courtisan, brillant dans les salons et jouant aux jeux. Son talent épistolaire lui valut de mettre longtemps en France la prose à la mode, et ses poésies excellent dans le ton maniériste et précieux, même s'il sait tour à tour être trivial quand il le faut. C'est un personnage incontournable de la scène littéraire du début du XVIIe, un vrai personnage de Molière. Voiture, c'est tout d'abord un style, non seulement dans ses lettres (Lettres amoureuses) et ses poésies mais également dans sa prose, voir pour exemple les délicieuses Métamorphoses. Ses œuvres furent à l'image de l'homme, galant, enseignant le beau langage et les belles manières aux habitués de l'hôtel de Rambouillet. Sa renommée fut très grande durant son siècle et il demeure un emblème pour le XVIIème siècle.

        Combattimento di Tritoni

      1656. Acquaforte con ritocchi di puntasecca, firmata in lastra in basso a destra. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, sottili margini, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Il Rosa ha eseguito tre stampe di questa tipologia raffigurante il combattimento di tritoni, probabilmente assai congeniale al suo modo eroico di interpretare l'antico. È chiara nell'artista l'ispirazione desunta dalle Battaglie di dei marini di Andrea Mantegna, delle quali ricrea anche lo spirito gioioso del mito pagano, e con le analoghe composizioni di Odoardo Fialetti. Le opere sembrano essere state eseguite nello stesso periodo delle Diverse Figure, databili tra il 1656 e il 1658. Etching with touches of drypoint, signed in plate lower right. Beautiful proof, printed on contemporary laid paper, thin margins, in excellent condition. The Rosa has performed three prints of this type depicting the battle of newts, probably very congenial to his own way of interpreting the ancient heroic. It is clear in the artist the inspiration derived from the Battles of marine Gods by Andrea Mantegna, which also recreates the joyful spirit of pagan myth, and with similar compositions of Odoardo Fialetti. The works appear to have been made in the same period of Different figures, dating from between 1656 and 1658. Bartsch 12; Rotili 13; Wallace 93; Massari, Tra Mito ed Allegoria, p. 440, 166. Dimensioni 166x108.
