HAAK, Theodore
London: John Rothwell, Joshua Kirton, and Richard Tomlins, 1657. 2 vols. Unpaginated. Leather hardcover bindings with blind impressing on the boards and spines, and gold lettering on spines. Marbled endpapers. Some scuffing to edges and corners of boards. Some fading and spotting to spines with additional fading to part of the front board on volume two. Text clear with finely written marginal notes from Genesis II until Exodus XIV in Volume I that cross reference other books of the Bible in the outer margin: likely written by an early owner. Some spotting and stains to several pages in both volumes. Fine condition. Theodore Haak (1605-1690), an educated and well-connected German intellectual, Calvinist scholar and natural philosopher, moved to England and became a founding member of the "1645 Group", a society of scientific thinkers who would go on to form the basis of the Royal Society. Haak was also a translator of English works into German (most notably, John Milton's Paradise Lost) and European works into English. The Dutch Annotations Upon the Whole Bible was begun in 1645 and published for the first time in 1657. This beautifully preserved edition is both a rare find and a key text in the history of Protestant theology. Fine. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Curious symbolical title in Hebrew. Title text in red and black. - Reimmann says the book was rare in his time. It does not treat of chemistry, but of the origin and early use of written characters and their significance. In so far as it refers to the Cabala it may be of use in elucidating some of the alchemical ideas. There was an second edition of this work in Krakau, 1691, 4°. - Thomas Jensen Bang was born at Copenhagen in 1600. He studied there and at Rostock and Wittemberg. In 1630 he was appointed Professor of Hebrew at Copenhagen, 1652, Professor of Theology, and Doctor in 1653. He was librarian of the University in 1656 and died 27th October, 1661. As a Danish philologist and writer, his works relate to Oriental scholarship. - REFERENCES: Ferguson, Bibliotheca Chemica, 1906, Vol.1, p.69; Albertus Bartholinus, De Scriptis Danorum liber posthumus, 1666, p. 136.; Reimmann, Auleitung in die Historiam literariam Antediluvianam, 1709, p. 235.; Bayle, Dictionaire Historique, 1730, i.

Downame, J.; J. Ley; W. Gouge; M. Casaubon; F. Taylor; E. Reynolds; T. Gataker; D. Featley; J. Reading; J. Richardson et al.] (Annotations by)
London: John Legatt (Vol. 1); Evan Tyler (Vol. 2), 1657. Second edition. Hardcover. poor to vg. Folio (13 3/4 x 9 1/2"). Unpaginated. 18th-century full calf, with gold lettering to spines. Woodcut headpieces and initials. Each volume is housed in a modern orange cloth covered clamshell box, with gold lettering to spine. Originally published in one volume in 1645, this two volume set was published for the Westminster Assembly, hence known as the Assembly's Annotations, or as the English Annotations, in distinction to Haak's Dutch Annotations of 1657. The preface (found in the first volume) recounts a short history of the English Bible. - Vol. 1 contains the first three books of The Westminster Annotations and Commentary on the Whole Bible, and covers Genesis to 2 Kings; 1 Chronicles to Job; and Psalms to Song of Solomon - Vol. 2 contains the last three books of The Westminster Annotations and Commentary on the Whole Bible, and covers Isaiah; Jeremiah to Malachi; and the complete New Testament from Matthew to Revelation. These Annotations were produced by some of the most qualified English Puritans. In his "History of the Puritans" (1732-1738), Daniel Neal furnishes us with a helpful (though partial) list of each of the specific authors and books of the Bible they worked on in the "Annotations": Rev. Mr. Ley, subdean of Chester (The commentary on the five books of Moses), Dr. Gouge (1 & 2 Kings, 1 & 2 Chronicles, Ezra, Nehemiah, Esther), *Mr. Meric Casaubon (The Psalms), Mr Francis Taylor (Proverbs), Dr. Reynolds (Ecclesiast … [Click Below for Full Description]

Amsterdam, Janssonius, 1657 - Zahn 1058/6. Nebehay-W. 277, 56. Skreiner, Steiermark in alten Ansichten Nr. 6: "Dieser große Kupferstich ist die erste mit topographischer Genauigkeit erarbeitete Ansicht der Stadt Graz, die vom holländischen Kupferstecher und Topographen Lorenz van de Sype, der 1634 in Graz starb, begonnen wurde. Die Ausführung dürfte wohl das Verdienst des 1607 in Prag geborenen hervorragenden Zeichners und Stechers Wenzel Hollar gewesen sein, der diesen Stich auch signierte. . Der Stich zeigt erstmals die Ansicht von Süden auf Graz. Graz, mit seinen Vorstädten und dem Umraum, dem Grazer Feld, wird in diesem breitangelegten Kupferstich mit großer Genauigkeit in der Wiedergabe der Gebäude, vermindert in der Landschaft, gegeben. . Um die Stadt übersichtlich darstellen zu können, wählte Hollar einen sehr hohen Augenpunkt, der ungefähr mit der höchsten Stelle der Festung auf dem Schloßberg bestimmt werden kann; daraus entsteht eine Vogelperspektive, die eine Aufsicht auf die Stadt ermöglicht. Trotz gewisser Ungenauigkeiten, die vor allem die geographischen Verhältnisse der Umgebung betreffen, ist Wenzel Hollar ein ausgezeichneter, plastisch körperhaft darstellender Stecher, der die topographische Aufnahme in eine durchaus belebte Darstellung umzusetzen vermochte". - Kleine restaurierte Randläsuren. *** /// *** Copyright: Matthaeus Truppe - Stubenberggasse 7 - A-8010 Graz - +43 316 829552 *** /// *** Sprache: Deutsch Gewicht in Gramm: 0 [Attributes: First Edition]

Amsterdam, Janssonius, 1657. Zahn 1058/6. Nebehay-W. 277, 56. Skreiner, Steiermark in alten Ansichten Nr. 6: "Dieser große Kupferstich ist die erste mit topographischer Genauigkeit erarbeitete Ansicht der Stadt Graz, die vom holländischen Kupferstecher und Topographen Lorenz van de Sype, der 1634 in Graz starb, begonnen wurde. Die Ausführung dürfte wohl das Verdienst des 1607 in Prag geborenen hervorragenden Zeichners und Stechers Wenzel Hollar gewesen sein, der diesen Stich auch signierte. . Der Stich zeigt erstmals die Ansicht von Süden auf Graz. Graz, mit seinen Vorstädten und dem Umraum, dem Grazer Feld, wird in diesem breitangelegten Kupferstich mit großer Genauigkeit in der Wiedergabe der Gebäude, vermindert in der Landschaft, gegeben. . Um die Stadt übersichtlich darstellen zu können, wählte Hollar einen sehr hohen Augenpunkt, der ungefähr mit der höchsten Stelle der Festung auf dem Schloßberg bestimmt werden kann; daraus entsteht eine Vogelperspektive, die eine Aufsicht auf die Stadt ermöglicht. Trotz gewisser Ungenauigkeiten, die vor allem die geographischen Verhältnisse der Umgebung betreffen, ist Wenzel Hollar ein ausgezeichneter, plastisch körperhaft darstellender Stecher, der die topographische Aufnahme in eine durchaus belebte Darstellung umzusetzen vermochte". - Kleine restaurierte Randläsuren. *** /// *** Copyright: Matthaeus Truppe - Stubenberggasse 7 - A-8010 Graz - +43 316 829552 *** /// *** Sprache: Deutsch Gewicht in Gramm: 0 [Attributes: First Edition]

First edition with continuous pagination, following the text of the original 4to edition. The work includes the 18th letter and the refutation of the 12th letter."One of the great French literary masterpieces, the Lettres Provinciales mercilessly ridicules the casuistry of various Jesuit moralists for what Pascal considered their lax, inconsistent, and unchristian views and defends Jansenism against charges of heresy" (Encycopedia of Philosophy)."The Lettres provinciales, written with polite irony and the utmost simplicity, lucidity, and objectivity, were an enormous success and dealt the Jesuits a blow from which they never recovered. The work was placed on the Index and was ordered by the Royal Council to be burnt (1660)" (Oxford Companion to French Literature, p. 541)."If the influence of Pascal, which has been decisive in the history of positive science, in the history of French literature and in the history of Christian thought, continues to be felt in our own days, the reason is that no work invites us more to pass byond discursive abstractions and to uncover by direct contact with the realities of nature and of the soul the springs of vivifying intuition" (Léon Brunschvicg in ESS, vol 12, pp. 7-8).The second part contains the following: Advis de Messieurs le … [Click Below for Full Description]
