        Lucii Annaei Senecae [.] Skrifter, som om Sæderne oc et Skickeligt Lefnit handler, oc med Bestandighed i Medgang oc Modgang det at fremdrage underviser. Af Samme Authore paa Latine skrefvit. Nu paa voris Dankse Maal ofversat, Af den sin Naeste dermed at tiene Begierer Trolig.

      Sorø, Georg Hantsch, 1658. - Folio (30 x 19 cm). (40), 183, (1) pp. (2), 324 pp. 374, (2) pp. With added engraved title-page and folding engraved frontispiece portrait of the author (36 x 24 cm to platemarks). Bound in near-contemporary calf with elaborately gilt spine; all edges marbled in blue. Very rare sole edition of this monument of Early Modern feminism, the chef d'oeuvre of the female prodigy Birgitta Thott. Thott's impetus for this voluminous translation (of nearly 900 pages) was to make the Roman author's moralizing philosophy available to women, who as a rule could read only in the vernacular; her broader aim, as outlined in her preface, was to encourage women to educate and improve themselves through equal access to knowledge. - The present project - "The works of Seneca. about Morality and a Decent Life" - was Thott's first foray into Latin translation, reflecting a long-standing interest in the teachings of the Stoic philosopher. "In her preface, dedicated to women, she agitates for women's rights to study and to have access to knowledge. She points out that all the literature that helps anyone to become a better person is written in Latin, putting it outside the scope of the majority of women. For this reason she translates such a morally instructive author as Seneca" (Churchill et al., p. 277). Thott also takes pains to point out Seneca's own warm feelings towards female education, as a further encouragement for modern readers. "This preface represents the earliest example of Danish feminism in print" (DLB). - "Thott is considered by many to be the most learned of Danish women. She was afforded great respect and was considered to be a role model and an atypical prodigy, a women who rose 'above her sex' and from whom men could learn a thing or two. Thott's translation of Seneca in one thousand printed folio pages is one of the most eminent books of the seventeenth century." (Dictionary of Literary Biography). Childless and widowed at the age of 32, Thott dedicated her time and resources to self-improvement, taking on personal tutors in Latin and six other languages. Her circle of correspondents included Ole Worm, Thomas Bartholin, and Vitus Bering. - Alongside Thott's own prefaces (one, dedicated quite simply to 'the Female Sex', addressing the concerns above, while the second 'to the Reader' addresses practical concerns of translation), her work is preceded by twelve laudatory poems. These are worthy of study in themselves, as evidence of Thott's impressive literary circle: the opening, and lengthiest sonnet is by Thott's fellow savante Anna van Schurman, with others by the German expert on Seneca Heinrich Ernst and the celebrated physician Thomas Bartholin. Even the engraved portrait of the author bears an ode 'In effigiem illustris Heroina' by the explorer Vitus Bering. - This portrait is in fact based on a now-lost painting by Abraham Wuchter, depicting a very sober Thott dressed in the habit of widow and set against a background of her bookcases and drapes. The engraved title is rather more lively, featuring a customary architectural conceit; but here the entrance to the 'Temple of Learning' is flanked by four women, reminding the reader that activities sometimes associated with men are in fact Classically attributed to female deities: Constantia (carrying a stone column); Justitia (with sword and scales); Sapientia (carrying a magnifying glass and a thick tome); and Temperantia (pouring wine). At the top of the page is Birgitta herself, sitting atop a pile of books and dressed as the goddess of wisdom, Minerva, with a shield bearing the Thott family coat of arms. - Portrait reinforced at inner margin of verso, with loss to a tiny spot of background near fold; very light dampstaining to blank margin of scattered leaves. Generally a fresh and wide-margined copy. - OCLC shows 1 US copy, at Brigham Young University. COPAC shows no copies in the UK. The work is generally found lacking its portrait or engraved title (or both!), but complete [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A Late Discourse Made in a Solemne Assembly of Nobles and Learned Men at Montpellier in France; Touching the Cure of Wounds By the Powder of Sympathy; with Instructions How to Make the Said Powders; Whereby Many Other Secrets of Nature are Unfolded.

      London: R, Lownes and T. Davies, 1658. [10] 152 [+1]. This copy lacks the blank leaves at the front and back. This is an elegant full leather binding with all edges gilt. The covers and spine are geometrically decorated, that is with all straight lines. The endpapers are marbled. This copy has one slight defect on pages 145-146. A smallish piece of this leaf was missing and has been skillfully been made whole. Ten words that were missing have been supplied in manuscript (printed in black ink). Nine of the words which have been supplied are clear, but one is obscure. The pages are a bit browned, but not seriously so. There is very little foxing. This is the very rare first English edition. It is Osler 2457 and Wing D1435. Osler has a long annotation and was fascinated by the rarity of this work. The DSB speaks of Digby's cure as follows: "In 1657 his increasingly poor health led Digby to take the waters at Montpellier, where he gave his famous account of the 'powder of sympathy,' which cured wounds by being rubbed on the weapon that inflicted them. It was a strong solution of vitriol (copper sulphate) in rainwater, which could be imnproved by drying in the sun and by mixture with gum tragacanth. It worked by a combination of occult and natural powers, that is, by attraction and by the small material particles given off by all objects." (DSB4.95b). First Edition. Full Leather. Very Good. 24mo - over 5" - 5¾" tall.

      London: Pr. by T.J. for Francis Cosinet 4to (18.9 cm, 7.4"). [2], 78, [2 (blank)] pp.. 1658 First edition of this anti-Baptist and anti-Quaker polemic. Reeve and Muggleton, self-proclaimed as the two witnesses mentioned in Rev. 11:3 ff., were the prophets and leaders of the Muggletonians, a small Christian sect that denied the doctrine of the Trinity, believed that God would no longer interfere in human affairs after the revelation of their founders, and condemned prayer and preaching. In this treatise the pair discuss the nature and destiny of the soul, the source of true apostolic authority, and the distinctions between true and false ministers.

It was enormously popular on the continent of Europe translated into Italian in 1560 and into French and German in 1567 and 1575.

Levinus Lemnius or Lemmens (1505 - 1568) was born at Zirickzee in the province of Zeeland in the Netherlands. At first he studied theology, then medicine under the famous anatomist Vesalius. He graduated at Padua in 1525 and then practised medicine successfully in his native town. He was a friend of Dodoens and Conrad Gesner. This work was his most famous and important, a Book of Secrets with large sections on medical matters and natural history: procreation and birth, medicinal plants, influence of the moon on plant growth, epilepsy, sleepwalkers, sleeping with an open mouth, the benefits of wine drinking, alcoholism, healing power of gemstones. In addition he is very interested in the occult and extraordinary natural phenomena, miraculous happenings, monsters and monstrous births.

      Breslau, Johann Lischke und Jakob Trescher, 1658. - Titelauflage der im Vorjahr unter dem Titel 'Teutscher Gedichte, Erster Theil' erschienenen höchst seltenen ersten Sammelausgabe der Werke des größten Dichters des deutschen Barock. Den Orig.-Bogen des Drucks von 1657 wurde nur ein neues Titelblatt vorgehängt und der sehr seltene erste Druck des 'Peter Squentz' wurde beigegeben. Dem vorangegangen war lediglich die Sammelausgabe von 1650, die nur den 'Leo Armenius', 'Oden' und 'Sonnette' enthielt. Diese wesentlich erweiterte Ausgabe enthält in den 10 für sich paginierten Teilen folgende Dichtungen, darunter mehrere Erstdrucke: 'Leo Armenius', 'Catharina von Georgien', 'Carolus Stuardus', 'Felicitas', 'Cardenio und Celinde', 'Majuma', 'Kirchhoffs-Gedancken', Oden (Teil I-III), Oden (Teil IV) und Sonette. Die Widmung datiert vom 1. Januar 1657. "War je ein Dichter bei reicher und umfassender Begabung und hoher menschlicher Würde, Spiegel des wahren, des inneren Zustandes seiner Epoche, so ist dies Gryphius" (Wolfskehl). Er markiert in mehrfacher Beziehung einen Wendepunkt in der Geschichte der neueren deutschen Poesie: Gryphius ist nicht nur Pionier einer neuen Formwelt, sondern vollendeter Träger eines – selbst erlittenen – neuen Weltbildes. "Wenn man von einem Barockdramatiker sagen darf, er trage das Leid, den durch Leidenserfahrung emporgewachsenen Pessimismus, die Tragik eines aus tausend Wunden blutenden Volkes und infolgedessen das bittere Wissen um die Fassadenhaftigkeit der Welt und ihrer Schönheit in sich und in seinem Werk, dann ist das der Schlesier Andreas Gryphius" (Kindermann). Schon zu Lebzeiten galt Gryphius als eine der bedeutendsten Dichterpersönlichkeiten der Epoche. Unter dem Gesellschaftsnamen "Der Unsterbliche" wurde er 1662, zwei Jahre vor seinem plötzlichen Tod, in die Fruchtbringende Gesellschaft aufgenommen. "Seine Tragödien und Lustspiele wurden von den Zeitgenossen nicht weniger bewundert als die über 650 lyrischen Dichtungen (darunter ca. 270 Sonette), deren großartige Sprachgewalt noch heute überwältigt" (Dünnhaupt). – Durchgehend gleichmäßig leicht gebräunt. Wenige Flecken. Schönes Exemplar. Seit über 50 Jahren nur ein defektes Exemplar im Handel nachweisbar. – VD17 23:233369H und 23:276899F (Peter Squenz); Dünnhaupt 2.2; Faber du Faur 628; Szyrocki 44.

        Novissima et Accuratissima Totius Americae Descriptio

      Amsterdam, 1658. Copper-engraved map, period hand-colouring in outline. Rare first state of Visscher's map of North and South America, one of the most influential mappings of the western hemisphere in the 17th century. "Although the map did not provide much in the way of cartographic advances, it had a large influence, future cartographers drawing upon either its geography or the distinctive cartouches. One of the most recognisable features is the large open lake in the place of the western Great Lakes ... The title is decorated with a scene showing the panning of gold or silver, with a native standing by under an umbrella. The cartouche top left bears a dedication to Cornelis Witsen, and depicts three angels helping a native Indian to heaven while the devil is fading away" (Burden). Cartographically, the map follows Blaeu's mapping from his world map of 1648, though depicts California as an Island as per the Briggs model. The map would be reissued after 1677, that second issue bearing a privilege line at the bottom of the map not present on the first issue. This map would prove influential to many future mappings of the western hemisphere, with similar maps issued by De Wit, Danckerts, Allard, and Ottens to the end of the 17th century.

        Imperii Sinarum nova descriptio. Auctore. Joh van Loon

      [Amsterdam: Jansson, 1658. Hand-coloured copper engraved map. Extensively and expertly restored where image had been cut. A good copy of this rare early map of China. This attractive and important map was first published in Jansson's Atlas Novus in 1658, but remains relatively rare as it appeared in only a few editions of the atlas. It was re-issued from the 1690s onwards by Valk & Schenk who added their imprint to the plate just under the sea-battle between the two western ships off the coast of Hainan. The map was drawn by cartographer Jan van Loon who managed to improve on earlier maps with greater accuracy and more detail: in particular, the coast around Hong Kong, Macau and Guangzhou is very carefully mapped. The two charming vignettes are particularly attractive: merchants and scholars support the title cartouche, whilst putti and winged mer-children frolic around the scale panel. Jan van Loon was a mathematician, astronomer and chart maker, who worked on the Pilot Books for Jansson and published two sea atlases on his own. Van der Krogt 8410:1C.

"In almost all his publications Hottinger repeatedly defends the historical and theological utility of the Arabic language [.] This he does most pointedly and systematically in the publication to which he gave the programmatic title 'Smegma Orientale', the word 'smegma' referring to Jeremiah 2:22 and meaning 'soadsuds' as opposed to the 'smut of barbarism'. The 'barbarism' in question refers to this supposed Roman Catholic ignorance of, and contempt for, the study of oriental languages. [.T]he 'Smegma Orientale' is a systematic account of the utility of oriental studies in general and of Arabic studies in particular, and as such is an exceptional Christian appraisal of Arabic culture and learning" (J. Loop, Hottinger: Arabic and Islamic Studies in the 17th Century [Oxford 2013], p. 80f.). In this work, Hottinger "quotes from his copy of the original Arabic version of Maimondies's 'Guide of the Perplexed', occasionally from the Syriac lexicon by Isho' bar 'Ali, from the Jacobite 'Responses' of Abu 'Ali 'Isa ibn Ishaq ibn Zur'a (943-1008) [.], and in particular from the Book of Joshua and the Arabic chronicle of the Samaritans which he had found in Scaliger's legacy. The long quotations from this curious source in the 'Smegma Orientale' are printed in the Arabic types obtained by the Dutch printer Adrian Weyngard much to Bodmer's distress in Zurich [.] One of the most famous pieces of evidence confirming the theological significance of oriental philology [.] is the [.] Arabic source extensively quoted [.] - the 'Annals' of Eutychius (Sa'id ibn Batriq), a universal history from the creation to the tenth century AD" (ibid., p. 92f., 95). One of three impressions in the same year. - Slightly browned, but well-preserved altogether. Half-title trimmed and re-mounted on a blank leaf. Withdrawn from Leipzig University Library with cancellation mark on t. p. VD 17, 23:232560W. Fürst I, 414. Graesse III, 377. Ebert 10307.

        [FOUR CONTINENTS] Europa delineata et recens edita; Asiæ nova delineata; Africæ accurata tabula; Nova et accuratissima totius Americæ descriptio

      [Amsterdam: Visscher, 1658. Four hand-coloured copper engraved maps. A set of the four continental maps from the Golden Age of Dutch cartography The Dutch were especially well equipped for the role they played in the European discovery and colonization of the wider world. Unencumbered by any desire to impose their religious or political beliefs, they simply wanted to trade commodities and profit thereby. The ascendancy of the Dutch in global trade lasted only as long as they could withstand the English and French, who, with much larger populations, ultimately overwhelmed them, but for a considerable portion of the 17th century, the Dutch were supreme. The outlines of the world the Dutch merchantmen discovered was conveyed to the rest of Europe (as Spain and Portugal did not) in beautifully engraved and coloured maps that resonated with authority. In these four maps by Visscher, with only a few exceptions (Hokkaido, Australia, New Zealand and the mythical Anian), the continents are delineated and defined in a remarkably accurate way. This was the accumulation of the day to day observations of sea captain / tradesmen, who at this time gave the world the first comprehensive sea charts. The Dutch were tradesmen and seafarers, not conquerors or settlers, so the fundamental advancement in geographical knowledge was in coastlines and rivers, as if in preparation for the great movements of peoples to come. The interiors derive from other, less reliable sources, some of them ancient as the Ptolemaic interior of Africa. The four maps form a balanced composition and an aesthetically appealing portrait of the newly discovered World. Visscher's cartouches are light, optimistic and exuberant, happily implying a bright future. Each of the four maps bears a dedicatory cartouche to a prominent Dutch statesman and illustrates his coat of arms, usually surrounded by gods, goddesses and angels. Betz, 87; Norwich 55; Burden, 332.
