        Historie der Sevarambes, volkeren die een gedeelte van het darde vast-land bewoonen, gemeenlyk Zuid-land genaamd, .Amsterdam, Willem de Coup, Willem Lamsvelt, Philip Verbeek, and Joannes Lamsvelt, 1701. Small 4to. With engraved frontispiece drawn and engraved by Joannes Lamsvelt and 16 plates engraved for this edition, at least mostly by Lamsvelt. Recased in contemporary(?) vellum, new endpapers.

      - R. Davidson, A book collector's notes, p. 43; STCN (4 copies); Tiele, Land- en volkenkunde, pp. 111-112; cf. Landwehr, VOC 373 (the associated journal). Rare second Dutch edition of an extensively illustrated account of an imaginary voyage to western Australia, based on the story of the wreck of the VOC ship Vergulde Draeck in 1656, first published in French in 1676 (without illustrations) and in Dutch in 1682 (with illustrations), all three anonymously. Many of the illustrations may have been inspired by better known exotic lands, such as Southeast Asia, the East Indies, India and Iran, and some depict natives in Islamic turbans. Europeans still knew almost nothing about Australia when Vairasse first published his account and his wild stories caught the imagination of the public and went through many editions. They give a good picture of what was then known and/or surmised about these little-explored regions and may have generated more enthusiasm for voyages of exploration than the more sober factual accounts. The frontispiece shows 9 little images of fabulous creatures. Some may now seem comic but at the time they probably seemed more plausible than a kangaroo or a platypus.With the margins of a dozen leaves and the frontispiece tattered and restored, two leaves with a couple tears into the text repaired and another with the corner torn off (but preserved loose) affecting 3 words of a shoulder note. The other leaves and plates are in good condition. With the boards slightly bowed and dirty, but the binding still good. Fascinating stories of an imaginary voyage to Australia, giving insights into European expectations of exotic peoples and lands.

        La Pucelle ou la France délivrée.

      Paris, Augustin Courbé, 1656. ____ Première édition de ce célèbre poème sur Jeanne d'Arc. Le texte de Chapelain est aujourd'hui quelque peu oublié et a été parodié par Voltaire au siècle suivant. Mais ce volume est remarquable par son illustration, elle est l'oeuvre de deux artistes de grand talent, le peintre Claude Vignon et le graveur Abraham Bosse : un frontispice et 12 belles gravures à pleine page. On y trouve aussi 2 portraits par Robert de Nanteuil, dont l'un d'après Philippe de Champaigne, et de nombreux en-têtes et culs-de-lampe. "La Pucelle", la première oeuvre poétique de Jean Chapelain est un poème en vingt-quatre chants, dont douze seulement furent imprimés, qui contient quelques beaux vers mais dont l'insuccès fit perdre à Chapelain presque tout son prestige. Il s'agit de l'un des premiers livres français illustrés par un peintre et il compte parmi les chefs d'oeuvre de l'illustration au XVIIe siècle. Une galerie de ver marginale rebouchée sur quelques feuillets. Bel exemplaire. Tchemerzine II, 239. Brunet I, 1794. *****. In-folio. Collation : (52), 522, (12) pp. Vélin à rabats, dos orné, encadrements dorés sur les plats avec fer doré dans les angles. (Reliure de la fin du XIXe.).

        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. Bookplates of David Halyburton and Alexander Mylne. Correspondence from and to Mr. Snelling enclosed from Rev. Mylne requesting information on who Alexander Mylne was. Gibson 704; Wing H809.

        An Epitome of All the Common & Statute Laws of this Nation, Now in.

      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.

Suivre l'auteur dans les conseils qu'il donne, c'est pénétrer dans l'intimité d'une famille chrétienne au IVe siècle. Le texte accompagné pour la première d'une traduction française avait été édité en 1656 par le dominicain François Combefis qui suggèra au cardinal Mazarin d'y puiser des conseils pour l'éducation du jeune Louis. » (Préface à l'édition moderne d'Anne-Marie Malingrey). Le Père Combefis (1605-1679) révéla au XVIIe siècle de nombreux inédits de patristique grecque qu'il traduisit en latin comme les textes de Basile de Séleucie (Laudatio S.

"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). This copy bound with "Nobilissimi Scutarii Blasii Pascalis tumulus" (1662), pp. [1-2] 3-4; and with "l'Apologie pour les casuists contre les calomnies des iansenistes: par un theologien & Professeur en droit Canon. Condamnée par nosseigneurs les prelats, & par la Faculté de Theologie de Paris". Paris, 1659. pp [i-iv], 1-191.
