William Sanderson, ESQ
1658. Very Good antique condition for rare book. Antique Collectors Book - Life and Raigne of King Charles - from his Cradle to his Grave. A beautifully leather bound edition written by William Sanderson, Esq and dated 1658. Rare and in good condition. 10 7/8" high X 7 1/4" wide X 3" thick. This book has been in our family library with other collectors books since the 1960's. My husband brought it back from Europe when he was stationed overseas as an Officer. This book, as the others, are housed in a glassed front library cabinet and kept under lock and key. We have done our best to preserve the antique quality so that we could sell it in our retirement. That day is here and my husband is gone. On the inside cover there is an etching/engraving that has been partly covered over by newpaper clippings from Jan and Feb 1949. I have left the clippings in tact for the new owner to remove at will. I will be listing many other antique collectors books in the future if you care to watch for them. I have tried to take good pictures without opening the binding very much. If you require more pictures or something specific, please ask before you bid. I do not accept returns or give refunds. I am sizing down so I do not need items back to resell again. Thank you for your understanding. I accept pay pal as payment and ship out within two business days of receiving payment as USPS Priority Mail. Please ask any questions. Thank you for shopping with me.

[VIEW - NETHERLANDS - LEIDEN]. SCHENK, Leonardus [and Abraham RADEMAKER].
A large engraved wall print in two sheets showing the trading and commercial centre of the city of Leiden, at the convergence of the Oude Rijn and Nieuwe Rijn canals. Unlike most other Dutch towns, Leiden had no central market square, so that the waterways formed the major access routes for merchandise. On the banks of the canals there is a lively market that converges on the bridge central in the print. Market traders and customers come and go. Women from the coastal fishing villages of Katwijk and Noortwijk display fresh fish for sale. Right in the print we see the monumental "Waag", the weigh-house built in 1658 following a plan by the Dutch architect and engraver Pieter Post. The splendid relief, designed by Rombout Verhulst, that crowns the entrance, is reproduced with a sharp eye for detail. In front of the building commercial goods are hoisted up from carts and a number of ships for transport to the weigh-house. Several other ships had moored and now continue to their destination. A boat flying the Dutch flag brings in a prominent party, while a herald standing precariously at the bow trumpets for right of way. We know of several other wall prints by Schenk depicting local situations with almost photographic detail. Thanks to this detail important socio-historical aspects have been passed on to later generations giving these prints an important cultural meaning today. With some faint foxing, otherwise in very good condition.l Overvoorde, Catalogus van de prentverzameling der Gemeente Leiden (1906), no. 964; Waller, Biogr. woordenb. Noord Ned. graveurs, p. 287.

SANDERUS, ANTOINE.
The first volume of a beautifully illustrated description of the Duchy of Brabant, published in parts from 1658 to 1660, by the Flemish historian Antoine Sanderus (1586-1664), with most of the illustrations by Lucas Vorsterman the Younger (1624-1666/67). "In this detailed and extensive survey, Sanderus developed a Counter-Reformation programme which elevated the part of the Duchy, which had remained under Spanish rule, to a sacred space par excellence, adorned by Catholic institutions, ... " (Esser). It contains descriptions of abbeys, churches and royal castles based on information gathered through questionnaires. "The questions that Sanderus wished to be answered concerned the holy places of Brabant, the age and foundation history of churches, abbeys and monasteries, the records of any miracles or other exceptional events, and the list of abbots and other, mainly clerical, dignitaries. He also, however, inquired about the geography of the land, the distances between places, the flora and fauna, and other statistical material which had, so far, not been collected for the Duchy" (Esser).The first volume is usually the only volume to be found as nearly the complete stock of the second volume was de destroyed in the bombing of Brussels in 1695.Lacking the engraved author's portrait (facsimile provided) and lacking one leaf with a poem in part 24, also lacking in some other copies; some foxing and browning throughout (heavily in the margins of the title-page) and a few tears repaired; a fair copy.

BÖCKLER, Georg Andreas.
[10], 55, [1] pp.First Latin edition of Böckler's remarkable Theatrum machinarum, translated by Heinrich Schmitz. The large plates show mills, pumps (some using an Archimedes screw), fountains and other hydraulic machinery, paper mills, flour- and sawmills, and even a fire engine made by Johann Hautsch in 1658 and a hand mill for making ink for copperplate printing. The machines are powered by wind, water, animals and humans. Some have weights so that they can run on their own once wound. The paper mill shows one man at the vat holding a paper mold, another pressing sheets, sheets hanging to dry, reams tied up for shipment, and in a side panel the water wheel and reams being transported on a donkey's back. There is a stamper in the foreground, and another plate gives a more detailed view of another stamper. With ca. 1800 letterpress bookplate and library stamps. The ink has browned the paper in a few letterpress leaves, but otherwise in good condition, with only a few small marginal worm holes and a could marginal defects. The binding has some damage but is structurally sound. A well-illustrated work on mills and waterworks by a leading German engineer and architect.l BLC German (17th cent.)

PHAEDRUS. (David van HOOGSTRATEN, trans.).
[50], 259, [1 blank], [28] pp.Third(?) edition of David van Hoogstraten Dutch verse translation of Phaedrus's fables. Van Hoogstraten (1658-1724), prorector of the Amsterdam Latin School and prolific Dutch and Neo-Latin poet, was an esteemed linguist and philologist who edited the works of a number of classical authors. His annotated Latin Phaedrus edition of 1701 is considered his masterpiece. The first edition of the elegant translation was published in 1703 (reissue 1704); the second in 1739 (reissued 1753). A 1716 Dutch edition doesn't mention Van Hoogstraten and may be a different translation or a piracy (a 1766 edition appears to follow it).Binding worn and spine damaged at the foot. With large waterstains in the front- and endmatter; large discoloured spots on several pages and accompanying plates due to modern illustrations placed loose within; a fair copy.l Bodemann, 94.5 (described as 12mo); Landwehr, F181; STCN (9 copies); not in Fabula docet.

ST. LO, George.
54, [2] pp.Second edition, with additional material and 8 pages longer than the first edition published earlier in the same year, of a rare and interesting pamphlet containing proposals for the improvement of England's navy and maritime trade, by the naval Captain and administrator George St. Lo (1658-1718).St. Lo suggest several methods for improving the British navy, recommends raising the pay of the crew and proposes that all seamen be registered with a local intendant, so that when the call for service does come, men may be located and distributed more quickly. He also notes that the French spend much more money on their navy. Regarding the confiscation of foreign cargo, St. Lo proposes that fully one third of the value of the goods be awarded to the captain and the crew. When it comes time to auction the actual goods, he recommends the spoils be broken into small lots, to allow for the greatest price per lot, thus increasing revenue.St. Lo's nine-page dedicatory letter to the Houses of Parliament gives a fascinating and detailed account of his own mistreatment by the French after his capture. In August 1688 St. Lo was appointed Captain of the Portsmouth and attached to the fleet in the river under Lord Dartmouth. He continuing to command her after the Glorious Revolution of 1688/89. In 1690 he was captured by the French and carried, severely wounded, to Brest, where he remained a prisoner for some time. His wound probably disqualified him from further service afloat, and in 1692 he was appointed a commissioner of prizes, in 1693 an extra commissioner of the navy, and i … [Click Below for Full Description]

Africa - Nicolaes Visscher, ca. 1677
1658. "Africae Accurata Tabula", copper engraving with original hand colouring by Nicolaes Visscher made in 1658, here in its second state published c. 1677. Size: 43,7 x 54,6 cm. The map illustrates the European view of Africa at the end of the 17th Century, filled with mythical towns, rivers, and mountains and continues to reflect the Ptolemaic view of Africa. Claudius Ptolemy imagined the Nile emanating from two massive lakes in south-central Africa, fed from springs in the imaginary Lunae Montes [the Mountains of the Moon]. The Niger River is shown as well - springing from a Niger Lacus in the general vicinity of the Congo, flowing north and then westward to empty near the actual location of the Gambia River. (The Niger, whose full course was not understood by Europeans until well into the 19th century, actually begins in West Africa well south of The Gambia, and then flows eastwards, emptying into the gulf of Guinea.) To prepare for this map, Visscher turned to the common model of the period which was Willem Blaeu’s 1608 wall map. Like Blaeu, Visscher shows a common source for the Cuama and Spirito Santo Rivers of the Zambese River originating in Sacaf Lacus in Southern Africa. The general outline of Africa is surprisingly modern in appearance. Of special note is the much greater detail that Visscher provides along the South African coastline. The first Dutch settlement under Jan van Riebeeck at the Cape of Good Hope had occurred in 1652, and it is likely that Visscher wanted to show this information on his map. Visscher introduces a number of Dutch names mixed with ol … [Click Below for Full Description]

Petri Gassendi
lyons: Lyon: Laurent Anisson and Jean Baptiste Devenet, 1658. First collected edition of Gassendi's works, including many texts first published here. Chief among these is his important Epicurean treatise on logic, physics, and ethics, the Syntagma philosophicum, which occupies the first two of these six volumes. It includes the correspondence with Brahe, Campanella, Queen Christina of Sweden, Descartes, Galileo, Grotius, Hevelius, Kepler, Kircher, Peiresc, Schickard, and other celebrated scientists of the day. Volumes 3 and 4 collect his scientific writings, most notably his important astronomical works. Volumes 5 and 6 present additional material relevant to the study of astronomy, including his lives of Brahe, Copernicus, Regiomontanus and other notables, and his correspondence with Brahe, Campanella, Queen Christina of Sweden, Descartes, Galileo, Grotius, Hevelius, Kepler, Kircher, Peiresc, Schickard, and other celebrated scientists of the day.Born in Provence, Gassendi was one the leading lights of the scientific revolution. As Richard Popkin notes in his history of skepticism, Gassendi had "an extremely important intellectual career, whose development, perhaps more than that of René Descartes, indicates and illustrates ... 'the making of the modern mind.'" Introducing an atomism drawn from Epicurus into the mainstream of European thought, Gassendi offered an empiricist alternative to Aristotelianism and Cartesanism, and was the first to articulate the mind-body problem. Molière and Cyrano de Bergerac numbered among his students; Newton, Boyle and Barrow were among … [Click Below for Full Description]

Very rare. 4 copies in North America (Folger, Huntington, Newberry, Yale) and 5 copies in the U.K. "One of the surprisingly few sermons on Cromwell's death to be published. [It] goes to a length in justifying the grand and stately funeral rites, suggesting nervousness that their propriety might be challenged."(Holberton) The author is the clergyman George Lawrence, who probably served as an army chaplain during the Civil War and knew Cromwell. The sermon is dedicated to Cromwell's son, Richard Cromwell. Lawrence draws parallels (with abundant reference to Scripture and historians) between Cromwell and the other great figures whose passing merited grand funerals and public mourning, such as Opheltes, at whose funeral "the body was consumed [by fire] with gold, silver, gems, and much artillery attending." Among the various cultural rites described, Lawrence mentions the customs of the Native Americans of Virginia who "having covered the corpse with dust, besmut their faces with coal and oyle, and howle at the grave twenty four hours." Lawrence's enjoins us to recall Cromwell's valor, his ability both to wage war and to bring peace, his love of country, his humility, "his kindness to the nation".

DU MOULIN (Gabriel).
Rouen, David du Petit Val, 1658. In-folio de 3 feuillets, 492 pages, 10 pages de chronologie et 1 feuillet de privilège. Ex-libris collé XIX ème siècle de Mallevoüe de St Germain d'Aulnay. Vélin souple d'époque en bon état (tout petit manque de vélin en bas du dos, trace d'un ancien dos de cuir collé par dessus le vélin, traces de liens. Ouvrage incontournable du curé de Menneval détaillant les nombreuses conquêtes de ces normands, principalement du Cotentin, partis pour libérer Jérusalem, et qui guerroyèrent en chemin pour s'installer en Méditerranée dès l'an 1003. On pourrait reprendre quasiment la même litanie de qualificatifs défavorables aux Vikings, en ce qui concerne les conquêtes normandes. Mario d'Onofrio propose quelques citations à cet égard : "peuple sans frein" (Orderic Vital), "pirates" (un abbé de Cluny), "maudits Normands" (document de 1043), "peuple belliqueux" (Dudon de Saint-Quentin) et "avide de pouvoir" (Gidefroy Malaterra) ou encore "prompt à utiliser toute ruse lorsque la force physique ne suffit plus" (Guillaume de Malmesbury). Pourtant, outre leur indubitable propension à consolider et étendre leurs conquêtes, les Normands ont aussi montré qu'ils possédaient tout à la fois une remarquable faculté d'adaptation et un sens politique extraordinaire en donnant vie aux premières formes d'Etat moderne. Ils ont apporté au Moyen Age italien l'expérience de la chevalerie et le pouvoir monarchique : deux éléments déterminants pour une transformation du sud européen, ancienne zone périphérique, en grande puissance européenne du XIIème siècle.

AUSTEN, Ralph.
Oxford: Printed by Hen: Hall for Thomas Robinson, 1658. Oxford: Printed by Hen: Hall for Thomas Robinson,, 1658. Challenging Francis Bacon's theory of the descent of sap Small quarto (198 x 150 mm), pp. 46. Early 20th-century tan calf by Riviere and Son, spine lettered in gilt, gilt roll tool turn-ins, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt, others uncut. Woodcut head-pieces and initials. A number of neat contemporary marginal markings (in the form of a trefoil). Light rubbing to calf, patch of abrasion to front endpaper, a few instances of light soiling to contents, small hole through A4 (touching a few letters), paper flaw at foot of final leaf (clear of letterpress). A very good, well-margined copy, complete with the single leaf "Table" at the end. First edition. Ralph Austen (c. 1612-1676) is a fascinating figure, a combination of self-taught gardener and religious radical, whose "approach to horticulture was innovative, experimental, and sceptical of the authority of theorists" (ODNB). Here he challenges Sir Francis Bacon over his theory of the descent of sap, opposing the findings of his friend Robert Boyle, the book's dedicatee. Madan comments that the "treatise is practical as well as critical, and affords advice of various kinds". Provenance: from the Lawes Agricultural Library, with their neat stamp to rear endpaper and small pencilled shelf mark to title page. The library was assembled in the early 20th century by Sir John Russell, director of the Rothamsted agricultural research institution in Hertfordshire, and ranked as one of the finest English collections of agr … [Click Below for Full Description]
