      Amsterdam 1657 - Pianta della città tratta dal "Theatrum praecipuarum urbium" celebre teatro delle città del Janssonius, sullo stile del "Civitates Orbis Terrarum" di Braun & Hogenberg. L'opera, pubblicata nel 1657, contiene 500 tavole raffiguranti città di ogni parte del mondo. Contrariamente al lavoro degli acerrimi rivali della famiglia Blaeu, Janssonius per la realizzazione dell'opera si servì delle lastre di precedenti cartografi ed editori. In particolare, nel 1653 egli acquistò da Abraham Hogenberg le lastre del "Civitates orbis Terrarum" che incorporò nella sua opera, ristampandole. Per le piante delle città olandesi, ordinò delle nuove lastre basate sull'atlante che Johannes Blaeu diede alla luce nel 1649. Per molte delle opere contenute nel 5° volume - quello dedicato all'Italia e denominato "Theatrum celebriorum urbium Italiae." - si servì delle lastre realizzate da Jodocus Hondius per l'opera "Italia Hodierna." del 1627. A differenza di queste ultime il formato è in-folio, con testo sia nel recto che nel verso. Incisione in rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Testo latino al verso. Rarissima. City plan taken from "Theatrum praecipuarum urbium", the famous city-plans book realized by Janssonius after Braun & Hogenberg's "Civitates Orbis Terrarum". The work was published in 1657, with 500 plates depicting cities from all over the world. In opposition to his main competitors, the Blaeus, to realize his project, Janssonius used the plates of former cartographers and publishers. In 1653 he bought from Abraham Hogenberg the plates of the "Civitates orbis Terrarum" which have been then included in his work. As far as Dutch cities, he had new plates realized after Johannes Blaeu's Atlas, published in 1649. The plates in the Fifth Volume, the one about Italy entitled "Theatrum celebriorum urbium Italiae.", Janssonius used the plates realized by Jodocus Hondius for his "Italia Hodierna." in 1627. Unlike Hondius' work, Janssonius' is an in-folio size, with text both on recto and on verso. Etching on copperplate with original hand colour, in good conditions. Latin text to the verso. Rare. D. Ferrari, "Mantova nelle stampe", 27 Dimensioni 500 365mm

        An ACT For LIMITING And SETLING [sic] The PRICES For WINES. At the parliament begun at Westminster the 17th Day of September, Anno Domini 1656

      London: Printed by Henry Hills, and John Field, Printers to His Highness, 1657. 1st edition (Wing E-1046). Not in Gabler, nor Goldsmith. Printed self-wrappers. VG (split developing along fold). Now housed in archival mylar sleeve.. [2], 2 pp. Commonwealth seal to t.p. Folio: *2. 10-5/8" x 6-3/4" Gabler, though not listing this item, does briefly discuss (& list) divers tracts & pamphlets written in the early 1640s voicing public outrage over a contract between Charles I and the Vintner's Company of London- under said contract the Vintners agreed to pay a 46 shilling tax on every ton of Spanish & French wine & also agreed to annually buy a certain amount from English importers. In return, the vintners were permitted to sell cooked victuals (a proviso *not* in their original charter) & allowed to recoup the tax by charging a penny a quart more that the officially published price. The ultimate effect was to give the Vintners' Company a monopoly on the wine trade, all the while enriching the coffers of Charles I. Needless to say, wine drinkers were livid. Parliament eventually responded in the consumers' favor. [Gabler, pp. 2-3]. This act of Cromwell's establishes limitations on prices for Spanish & French wines, a proclamation issued perhaps in memory of the Vintner's Company earlier attempts at profiteering?

        Londinopolis; An Historicall Discourse or Perlustration Of the City of London, The Imperial Chamber, and chief Emporium of Great Britain: whereunto Is added another of the City of Westminster, With The Courts of Justice, Antiquities, and new Buildings thereunto belonging. [With] Map of London by Rutger Hermannides

      J Streater, for Henry Twiford, George Sawbridge, Thomas Dring, and John Place, London 1657 - A very good copy of Londinopolis by James Howell, with additional loose map of London by Rutger Hermannides, probably removed from a copy of Magna Britannia. James Howell, (c1594-1666) navigated his way with some difficulty through the changing allegiances of the English Civil War, Commonwealth and Restoration, spending 8 years in prison between 1643 and 1650. He attempted various court positions, becoming Royal Historiographer to Charles II in 1660, but made most of his living from writing. Londinopolis describes the main landmarks and areas of London with outlines of their history. Lowell is frank that he has 'fetched' most of his materials from others and it is considered that much of the content comes from Stow. This copy of Londinopolis is in a later 1800's full leather binding by H Woodburn.This has a delicate blind tooled border of leaves to the boards; raised bands, blind tooled designs and title label to spine. It is showing some wear to the front hinge and edges and has a small scuff but is otherwise in very good clean condition. There is an ink signature 'Stouthall' to the front pastedown endpaper. Contents: initial blank; frontispiece by Abraham Bosso; title page in red and black inks; blank; poem in latin and english; dedication to the 'Renowned City of London' 2pp; Some Advertisements to the Reader 2pp; The Chiefest Materials 2pp; doublepage panoramic view of London by Holler; text pp 1-407 with decorative initial capitals; blank; index 6+pp; Catalogue of Mr Howell's works 1p; more works 1p; blank with pasted note by Stouthall. It is likely that this is Wing variant H3091. There are numerous pagination errors, but no loss of text eg p 85 to 84, to 95; 123 to 128; 128 to 311The title page has part of a signature at the top suggesting that the page edges were trimmed down when it was rebound. There is some marking to the bottom of the Advertisements, and to the top of p 399, but the contents are generally very clean. The paper is lightly toned. The loose map, which measures 26.5 x 13.5 cm is similarly toned but clean. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        History of Magick

      1657. First Edition . NAUDAEUS, G. [NAUDÉ, Gabriel]. The History of Magick By way of Apology, For all the Wise Men who have unjustly been reputed Magicians, from the Creation, to the Present Age. Written in French, by G. NaudaeusÂ… Englished by J. Davies. London: John Streater, 1657. Small octavo (4-3/4 by 6-3/4 inches), contemporary full brown calf rebacked. Housed in a custom clamshell box. $6000.First edition in English of the famous 17th-century history of magic, a defense of accused magicians throughout the ages, written by esteemed French scholar and librarian Gabriel Naudé, very scarce in contemporary boards.First published in France in 1625, “Gabriel NaudéÂ’s best known and most important work was probably the Apolgie pour les grands personages faussement soupçonnés de magie [The History of MagickÂ…]. Librarian to the Cardinal de Bagni in Italy, and subsequently to Richelieu and Mazarin,” Gabriel Naudé was also once physician to Louis XIII (Harvey & Heseltine, 509). “This famous bookÂ… was written in defence of celebrated scientists accused of being magicians or sorcerers. Among the men defended by Naudé are: Cardanus, Geber, Lullius, Arnaldus de Villanova, Paracelsus, Agrippa von Nettesheym, R. Bacon,” Pythagoras, Socrates, Thomas Aquinas and others (Duveen, 423). In exonerating these figures, Naudé established four categories of magic—divine, theurgic, natural and witchcraft—distinguishing the first three as licit and witchcraft as illicit. “A man variously described as ‘one of the more well-traveled academicians,Â’ ‘who was enthusiastically admired by scholars all over Europe,” Naudé created for Cardinal Mazarin the fourth greatest European library of its day (Rayward, Four Lives in Search of a Story). Translated into English by J. Davies. With leaf of advertisements at rear; without half title and free endpapers. Occasional mispagination as issued without loss of text. Biblliotheca Osleriana 5215. Lowndes, 1654. Wing N-246. See Caillet 7923. See Matterlin F1.600. Early owner inscription dated 1736, probably that of EnglandÂ’s Sir Hungerford Hoskins, Fourth Baronet (c.1677-1767). A descendant of one of the founders of the Royal Society, Sir Hungerford Hoskins fought in the War of Spanish Succession under the Duke of Marlborough, and served in the House of Commons. Later American owner inscription. Occasional very light marginalia.Text generally fresh with some edge-wear, dampstaining, some rubbing, slight edge-wear to boards. A very good copy, scarce in contemporary calf.

      - Köpenhamn, Peder Morsing, 1657. 4:o. (60) s. Första textsidan solkig. Delvis lagerfläckig, mest i marginalerna. Något nött men fint samtida skinnband, guldornerad rygg med upphöjda bind, marmorerade snitt samt blindpressad spegeldekor och guldram på pärmarna. Ur Ericsbergs bibliotek. Bibl. danica III, sp. 141. Klemming, Sveriges förhållanden, s. 141. Warmholtz 4615. Gunde Rosenkrantz (1604-75), son till Holger Rosenkrantz, var danskt riksråd. Från 1657 propagerade han ivrigt för att påbörja ett nytt krig mot Sverige och skrev ett antal mycket hårda skrifter mot det nordliga grannlandet och dess krigsförbrytelser mot Danmark. Ett tämligen oplanerat krig inleddes också, vilket föranlädde Karl X Gustav att vända sig från Polen mot Danmark. Gunde Rosenkrantz blev 1664 tvungen att fly Danmark undan kreditorer och såg ingen annan utväg än att fly till Sverige. 1670 ansökte den tidigare så ivrige danske patrioten om att bli svensk undersåte, men förgäves. I misär dog han i Helsingborg, inte välkommen vare sig i Danmark eller i Sverige. Vid sidan av politik bedrev han ivrigt teologiska och klassiska studier, och publicerade även en del uppbyggelselitteratur, som delvis även översattes till svenska.

        Lingua: or the Combat of the Tongue, and the Five Senses of Superiority. A pleasant Comoedy.

      Printed for Simon Miller, at the Starre in St Pauls Church Yard. 1657 [144]pp, signed A-I8. 8vo. Paper aging, titlepage a little dusted, faint ownership inscription dated 1895. Contemporary calf, 19th century reback, red morocco label; joints & board edges rubbed, some wear to head & tail of spine. 19th century endpapers & pastedowns.ESTC R23455. A popular allegorical play, with detailed directions on costume indicating that it must have been handsomely staged, but in front of which monarch is still debated. The play is concerned with the civil strife in Microcosmos in which the five 'exterior senses' are arrayed against Queen Psyche and her counsellors, the three 'interior senses.' Lingua, anonymously published in 1607, went through seven editions prior to the Restoration. 'G. C. Moore Smith supported 1602 as a possible date for the composition of Lingua, on the theory that a compliment to Queen Psyche is really meant for Queen Elizabeth; however, other critics do not find this evidence convincing. There is also another myth, that Oliver Cromwell acted in Lingua, his young nephew performing the role of Small Beer. This led F.G. Fleay to suggest that the play formed part of Cromwell's entertainments for King James at Hinchinbrook on 27–9 April 1603. There is no evidence, however, to suggest that this was the case. A third theory, proposed by Frederick Boas, dated the play later, to shortly before the time of publication, because of certain similarities with passages in Macbeth.' (Ref: D.N.B.)

FIRST EDITION of the first book by the Jesuit Gaspar Schott, a pupil of Athanasius Kircher. The first part is theoretical while the second part explodes into an extraordinary catalogue of machines illustrated by engraving and woodcut. 'Schott first published what had originally been intended as a brief guide to the hydraulic and pneumatic instruments in Kircher's Roman museum, expanding it into the first version of his Mechanica hydraulico-pneumatica. But he added as an appendix a detailed account of Guericke's experiments on vacuums, the earliest published report of this work' (DSB). Very Good.

        Les Provinciales ou lettres escrites par Louis de Montalte à un provincial de ses amis et aux RR. PP. Jésuites : Sur le sujet de la Morale, & de la Politique de ces Pères.

      First edition Cologne [Paris]: Pierre de la Vallée, [1656-]1657. A beautiful copy of Pascal's 18 Provincial letters, bound in fine red morocco in 1865 by Chambolle-Duru, from the collection of Benzon (his sales catalogue no. 42, 1875) with two further rare works relating to Pascal. Provenance: inscription to title 'Ex libris Congregationis domus Missionis Trecensis', repeated on the 8th letter. ?PMM 140. "The Lettres Provinciales, as they are called, are the first example of French prose as we know it today, perfectly finished in form, varied in style, and on a subject of universal importance... [Pascal] was an infant prodigy, whose work in mathematics and natural science attracted considerable attention before he was sixteen... [But he] will always be chiefly remembered as a moralist, more especially as the great apologist for Jansenism, the seventeenth-century French ascetic movement of reform inside the Roman Catholic Church... At the end of 1655, the movement had been much under attack from the Jesuits, and Pascal was persuaded to write a rejoinder... [his] counter-attack took the form of a brilliant exposure of the casuistical methods of argument employed by the Jesuits... Pascal's weapon was irony, and the freshness with which the gravity of the subject contrasts with the lightness of the manner is an enduring triumph. The vividness and distinction of his style recalls Milton at its best." (Printing and the Mind of Man). The style of the letters 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. 4to (230 x 172 mm), bound in fine full red morocco with raised bands, gilt spine lettering, all edges gilt, marbled end-papers, elaborately gilt blind-tooled inner boarders, engraved armorial book plate of Benzon. Fully complete: pp [i-xiii: title and Notice (in first state)]; 1-8 (1st letter); 1-8 (2nd letter); 1-8 (answer from the Provincial and 3rd letter); 1-8 (4th letter); 1-8 (5th letter); 1-8 (6th letter); 1-8 (7th letter); 1-8 (8th letter); 1-8 (9th letter); 1-8 (10th letter); 1-8 (11th letter); 1-8 (12th letter); 1-8 (Refutation to response of 12th letter); 1-8 (13th letter); 1-8 (14th letter); 1-8 (15th letter); 1-12 (16th letter); 1-8 (17th letter, 23 January 1657); 1-12 (18th letter).
