        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.)

'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.

        M. Tulli Ciceronis Epistolarum selectarum libri tres: Editi in usum Scholarum Hollandiae & West-Frisiae. Ex decreto illustriss. D.D. Ordinum eiusdem Provinciae.

      Amsterdam (Amstelodami), Apud Ludovicum & Danielem Elzevirios, 1657. - 8vo. 160 p. Vellum 16 cm (Ref: Willems 1211; Bergman 2024; Rahir 1237; Schweiger 169; Spoelder Amsterdam 5, p. 486/87) (Details: Nice and clean copy of a schoolbook. 5 thongs laced through the joints. Back ruled gilt, with the gilt coat of arms of Amsterdam on the 'compartments'. Boards with gilt double fillet borders, and gilt corner pieces with the coat of arms of the city. In the center of upper and lower boards the gilt coat of arms of Amsterdam. All 4 green silk ties still present, though 1 is hanging on a few threads. Woodcut printer's mark of Louis and Daniel Elzevier on the title, depicting Minerva under an olive tree. She holds a banner with the motto: 'Ne extra oleas', to be understood as 'Stay within the bounds of wisdom'. The Amsterdam Elseviers Louis and Daniel Elsevier produced more than 600 editions, and 256 of them have this motto 'ne extra oleas'. It seems more or less the equivalent of the printer's mark (a philosopher under an olive tree) and the motto of the famous French scholar/printer Robertus Stephanus 'noli altum sapere', 'Be not high-minded'. Stephanus' printer's mark and motto clearly inspired the Elseviers. We are not sure wether this copy is a prize copy or not. We cannot discover a trace of a removed prize. The book might have been a present of the City of Amsterdam to someone) (Condition: Vellum age-tanned) (Note: This anthology was commissioned by the Provincal Governments of Holland and West-Frisia for the use in local 'Latin schools' in the Western part of the Dutch Republic. They wanted to present the youth, it is said in the preface, letters of Cicero, which were edifying for their elegance, the importance their subject matter and the power of their 'sententiae'. (sive ob formularum elegantiam, sive ob rerum sententiarum momenta', p. 3) For centuries the Roman orator, author and politician Cicero retained a central position as a school author and a model for good writing, on protestant schools and in Jesuit colleges. The period of his greatest glory was the Renaissance, when he became the object of a literary cult called Ciceronianism. Many humanists took him as an absolute model for pure Latin, and an elegant style. Petrarch modeled his own 'Epistolae Familiares' in part on Cicero's 'Epistulae ad Familiares'. Petrarch created, like Cicero, in his letters 'a kind of autobiography and a partial history of his own life and time. Even as Petrach rebuked Cicero for being too Ciceronian in other words, he helped establish Cicero as a uniquely powerful stylistic model and intellectual resource'. (The Classical tradition, N.Y., 2010, p. 196) This anthology from the epistolary oeuvre of Cicero. The style of Cicero's letters varies very much. Many of them deal with official business, there are also polished manifesto's in letter form. 'Others have a less formal tone, while others again (.) on private affaires have no stylistic pretensions at all, but consist of short, elliptic sentences, packed with idiomatic phrases. (.) This, (.) shows the essential soundness of his style; it was not an artificial dialect for the use of literary men, but the speech of his own people, purified, carefully arranged, and made more flexible and expressive'. (H.J. Rose, 'A handbook of Latin literature', London, 1964, p. 165)) (Collation: A-K8) (Photographs on request) 500 gr

      Amsterdam: Jan Jansson (Johannes Janssonius) 1657 - Copper engraving (Very Good, profesionally cleaned and pressed, small repaired tears in white margins, with small mistakes in print (blank spots) as usual, a tiny worm hole in the cartouche): 61 x 47 cm (24 x 18.5 inches). This magnificent finely engraved plate shows the city Mainz in Germany from two sides. Václav Hollar: Restoration England’s Greatest Engraver - Václav Hollar (1607 – 1677), known as ‘Wenceslaus’ (in English) and ‘Wenzel’ (in German), was born in Prague, the capital of Bohemia, in 1607, into a bourgeois Protestant family. At the time of his birth, Prague was perhaps the greatest artistic centre in Europe, due to the extravagant patronage of Emperor Rudolf II. However, by the time of Václav’s adolescence, Prague and all of Bohemia were beingravaged by the Thirty Years’ War (1618-48). The fortunes of his family were ruined and his plans to become a lawyer were doomed, owing to his Protestant faith in a country then governed by Catholic zealots. Hollar learned drawing, etching and engraving as a gentlemanly hobby, but in light of his new circumstances and his natural talent, he became a professional artist. Hollar moved to the Stuttgart area in 1627, before continuing on to Strasbourg. By 1633, he was in Cologne. There, in 1636, Hollar had the great fortune to encounter Thomas Howard, the 21st Earl of Arundel, who was returning to England from an embassy to Vienna. Arundel was perhaps the greatest contemporary English connoisseur of the arts and, amazed by the young Czech’s awesome talent, he immediately invited him to join his entourage as his official artist. By 1637, Hollar had relocated to England, and while he executed many assignments for Arundel, he was still free to pursue commissions from other patrons. Shortly after his arrival in England, Hollar engraved a View of Greenwich, a massive panorama of the Thames port town featuring Inigo Jones’s pioneering neoclassical edifice, the Queen’s House. Upon Arundel’s hasty departure from England (due to political reasons), Hollar switched to the employ of the Duke of York. The advent of the English Civil War (1642-8) led to great financial troubles for Hollar, as many of clients proved unable to pay his fees. However, his etching Civilis Seditio (1643) is considered to be on of the most evocative images epitomizing the internecine conflict. Hollar was eventually compelled to relocate to Antwerp, where his best-known work was the magnificent view, the Cathedral of Our Lady (1649). Hollar returned to London in 1652. Upon the Restoration of the monarchy, in 1660, Hollar found himself in a difficult position. While he was apolitical and had many connections with leading Royalists, he was also close to some prominent members of Cromwell’s late administration. While no explicit punitive action was taken, Royalist officials suspected him of being disloyal and ungrateful to the court, and for years Hollar had difficulty gaining court commissions. Hollar did find business from commercial publishers and a few old friends in high places, although this yielded only a hardscrabble existence. It took some years for him to regain the trust of the court. Václav Hollar the Cartographer - Hollar focused heavily on cartography, especially during the last decade, or so, of this life, and this helped to revive his career. He is largely responsible for dramatically improving the quality of map engraving in London. Many of Hollar’s maps, such as A New and Exact map of Asia, stand apart as being of a far higher level of artistic execution than that of other contemporary English maps. Moreover, beyond his own works, Hollar’s superior skills as a fine art engraver set a high standard that other artists sought to emulate, so improving the industry in general. Curiously, Hollar’s first truly important map commission in England came from Thomas Jenner, who charged him with engraving the famous ‘Quartermaster's Map’ of England and Wales, formally known as the The kingdome of England & princi

Son édition d'Hippocrate est la meilleure produite, au XVIe siècle, avec celle de Janus Cornarius. Ex-dono manuscrit ancien au contreplat : copie d'un passage du testament de l'abbé l'abbé Vital Chouvy (1752-1835), professeur d'histoire ecclésiastique à Lyon, établi le 28 novembre 1835 : "Je lègue à titre de souvenir amical à M. R. de la Prade, docteur en médecine, à Lyon, mon exemplaire des Oeuvres complètes d'Hippocrate..." ; probablement Richard de la Prade, médecin de l'hôtel-Dieu de Lyon, membre de l'Académie Royale des sciences de la même ville et professeur de médecine clinique.

(23,3 x 18,8 cm, bzw. 22,4 x 17,2 cm; Buchblock: 1,3 cm) Gr.8°. Pieters 71 auf S. 173 ("Edente Georg. Hornio."). Willems 808 ("Marque: Le Solitaire. 6 ff. limin. - 243 pp. Saumaise avait entrepris ce traité vers 1634, à la demande du prince d'Orange, qui désirait connaître 'la manière de camper des Romains [Hmmm, die Römer als Inspiration für das holländische Camping ! CS] et celle de ranger en bateille.' Suivant le désir du prince, il rédigea d'abord en français. En 1637 il se rendit à Paris pour le faire imprimer, mais ne trouva pas d'éditeur disposé à en charger (Salmasii Epist., p. 189). Les Elzevier se montrèrent plusaccomodants. L'impression était déjà assez avancée en 1644 pour que l'ouvrage fût porté (sans indication de prix) dans le catal. officinal publié en cette année. Nous voyons par ce document que le traité de Saumaise devait paraître simultanément en latin et en français. Malheureusement l'auteur, engagé en d'incessantes controverses, n'avait guère de temps à consacrer à son oeuvre. on pas qu'il la perdît de vue: au contraire, il se promettait constamment d' y revenir. Ainsi, en 1648, il déclarait qu'il allait y travailler sans désemparer, aussitôt qi'il aurait mis au jour son écrit contre Didier Hérault (n° 645); c'est du moins ce que marquaient les Elzevier à Cl. Sarrau, qui ne manqua pas d'en féliciter Saumaise: 'Scribit Elzevirius junior te, post absolutum librum contra Heraldum, totum jam esse in adornanda militia romana.' (Sarravii Epist., p. 186.) Mais ces bonnes résolutions ne tinrent pas. A peine débarrassé de Hérault, Saumaise s'embarquait dans une nouvelle polémique à propos de l'exécution de Charles Ier d'Angleterre, tant et bien qu'il mourut, en 1653, avant d'avoir mis la dernière main àson livre. Pris au dépourvu par cet événement, les Elzevier résolurent d'en finir une bonne fois, et de mettre en vente l'ouvrage tel quel: 'Salmasii commentarius de re militari iam ante decennium edi coeptus est,' écrit N. Heinsius, le 18 avril 1654, 'finem operi se iam imposituros Elzevirii minantur, quaquam mutilo et imperfecto.' (Epist. ad Magliabechium, t. I, p. 197.) Mais ils se ravisèrent par la suite, et le soin de la publication fut confié à G. Horn.

Totdat in 1672, toen Frankrijk, Engeland, Munster en Keulen de Republiek der Verenigde Nederlanden de oorlog verklaarden en Nijmegen weer als vestingstad in de vuurlinies lag.Janssonius (1588 Arnhem-1664 Amsterdam) trouwde met de dochter van uitgever Jodocus Hondius I en neemt na een tijd diens zaak over aan het huidige Damrak in Amsterdam.Janssonius verwerft 363 koperen platen van de Keulse uitgevers Georg Braun en Franz Hogenberg en besluit daarmee in 1657 zelf een stedenboek te maken. De koperen platen werden geüpdate, aangepast en deels geheel nieuw vervaardigd. Hij gebruikte daarbij topografische voorbeelden van Matthäus Merian, Jodocus Hondius II en van zijn Amsterdamse concurrent Joan Blaeu.Het resultaat was een indrukwekkend boek in 8 delen met daarin ruim 500 afbeeldingen van steden van de wereld. De meeste platen werden niet gesigneerd.Prijs: € 1.650,-   .

        35 Acts including related items with a Proclamation, in One Volume, 1657, predominately Black Letter & title page with the woodcut Arms of the Commonwealth and where stated with drophead title. Includes a number of interesting Acts issued during the Commonwealth Government under Oliver Cromwell and here referred to as ‘His Highness The Lord Protector’ with the final item being an Order of Parliament for a Publique Thanksgiving for a thwarted attempt on the Life of Cromwell. Charles I was beheaded in 1649 & Charles II returned to rule in 1660. Cromwell died in 1658 having been Lord Protector for only five years and this vol. of mainly Acts is therefore historically significant being produced in the short lived era of the Commonwealth.

        Astro-Theology: or, a Demonstration of the Being and Attributes of God, From a Survey of the Heavens.

      Sixth Edition. Octavo. [16] lvi [8] 246 pages,[10] [3 foldout engravings]. Original Hardcover / bound in contemporary panelled calf. The book has been sympathetically rebacked to style.

The text is complete and clean with the three foldout engravings of the cosmos to the rear, a little archival paper restoration to one of the engravings. William Derham FRS (26 November 1657 5 April 1735) was an English clergyman, natural theologian and natural philosopher. He produced the earliest, reasonably accurate estimate of the speed of sound. William Derham was the son of Thomas Derham. He was born at Stoulton, in Worcestershire, England. He was educated at Blockley, Gloucestershire and at Trinity College, Oxford from 1675 to 1679. He was ordained on 29 May 1681. In 1682, he became vicar of Wargrave, Berkshire and from 1689 to 1735 he was Rector at Upminster, Essex. While at Upminster, in 1716 he became a Canon of Windsor and the vestry minutes show that thereafter he divided his time between those two places. The parish registers of Upminster record his burial at St. Laurence's in 1735. However, the precise site of his grave is unknown and, in accordance with his wishes, there is no memorial to him in the church. In 1696, he published his Artificial Clockmaker, which went through several editions. The best known of his subsequent works are Physico-Theology, published in 1713 Astro-Theology, 1714 and Christo-Theology, 1730. All three of these books are teleological arguments for the being and attributes of God, and were used by William Paley nearly a century later. However, these books also include quantities of original scientific observations. For example, Physico-Theology contains his recognition of natural variation within species and that he knew that Didelphis virginialis (the Virginia opossum) was the only marsupial in North America. Similarly, Astro-Theology includes several newly identified nebulae (this was the name used at the time for all extended astronomical objects: some of his nebulae are what we would now call star clusters). His 16-feet long telescope (also used when measuring the velocity of sound) was at the top of the tower of St Laurence's Church, where the necessary doors are still in place. On 3 February 1703, Derham was elected Fellow of the Royal Society. He was Boyle lecturer in 17111712. His last known work, entitled A Defence of the Church's Right in Leasehold Estates, appeared as early as 1731. But besides the works published in his own name, Derham contributed a variety of papers to the Transactions of the Royal Society. He revised the Miscellanea Curiosa. He edited the correspondence and wrote a biography of John Ray, whose 'physico-theology' (natural theology) tradition he continued, making him an early parson-naturalist. He edited Eleazar Albin's Natural History, and published some of the manuscripts of the scientist Robert Hooke. His meteorological observations at Upminster (in the Transactions of the Royal Society) are amongst the earliest series in England. (Wikipedia)
