Whereunto is added one book containing philosophical and prudential rules how man shall become excellent in all conditions, whether high or low, and lead his life with health of body and mind. Fit for the use of those that practise physick, and all others that desire to search into the hidden secrets of nature, for increase of knowledge. FIRST ENGLISH EDITION 1658. Small folio in fours, 280 x 185 mm, 11 x 7¼ inches, title page printed red and black, pages (16), 398, lacking final blank leaf, bound in full contemporary calf, blind rules to covers, raised bands and blind rules to spine, later gilt lettered morocco label and endpapers. Covers slightly stained and slightly worn at corners, hinges rubbed and a little tender, tiny chip to leather at top of upper hinge, old inscription at foot of original front endpaper, title page slightly dusty, small crease to top corner of first 5 leaves, as in other copies A4 (last leaf of Preface) is a cancel and slightly uneven at fore-edge, small closed tear to 1 lower corner, repaired, not affecting text, 1 upper outer corner torn off, no loss of text, tip of another corner missing, a few small rusty marks, mainly to margins, no loss of legibility. A very good tight copy of the scarce English first edition. First published in Latin in Antwerp in 1559 in two books, it was reissued in 1564 enlarged to 4 books. It was enormously popular on the continent of Europe translated into Italian in 1560 and into French and German in 1567 and 1575. Although it continued to be reissued in Latin well into the 17th century it was not translated into English until 1658. 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. The final section, the Exhortation, beginning on page 315 deals with religious and moral topics.

        Vellum Indenture signed by Algernon Sidney

      1658.. Vellum manuscript, 420 x 640 mm., folded to docket size, a little rubbed yet in good condition. A legal document of some interest to the biography of Algernon Sidney: an Indenture agreement between Viscount and Viscountess Strangford and "the Honble Algernon Sidney of the parish of St Martyn in the Fields in the county of Middlesex", passing the manor of Postling in the county of Kent to Sidney in trust.Sidney's convoluted financial affairs are described at some length by his biographer Jonathan Scott (Algernon Sidney and the English Republic, 1623-1677, pp. 61 onwards), who explains 'Algernon's coming into contact [through his father's business affairs] with the affairs of the Strangfords. This was a supreme misfortune for both Algernon and Strangford and the resulting difficulties were to dominate Sidney's life from 1654 to 1659, and again from late 1677 to 1679...'.Philip Smythe, 2nd Viscount Strangford (1634-1708), was Sidney's cousin, and so was his wife. The entanglement of their affairs became complex; the Strangfords went into short-term exile while Sidney manoeuvred; as a result of the complexity he was forced to attempt to restore their fortune in order to restore his own. One of the stages in the procedure was the Strangfords' conveyance of the manor of Postling in trust to Sidney. Scott speaks of this occurring in June or July 1658; in fact the document to hand is dated 2 July 1658. The story would not end well, with Sidney later accused by his cousins of trickery and unfair dealings.The handsome document is signed by both Strangfords as well as by Algernon Sidney, a rare example of his signature.

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

      [Amsterdam: Visscher, n.d., but c. 1658]. Four hand-coloured copper engraved maps. 19 3/4 x 23 inches. 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.

        TWO TREATISES: IN THE ONE OF WHICH THE NATURE OF BODIES; IN THE OTHER, THE NATURE OF MANS SOUL IS LOOKED INTO: IN WAY OF DISCOVERY OF THE IMMORTALITY OF REASONABLE SOULS.

      London: Printed for John Williams ., 1658 & 1657. - [48],312,301-429,[1],[10],136,139-143,[1]pp. Small quarto (signed in 8s). Modern three quarter calf and marbled boards. Bound without terminal blank, signature AA misfolded altering sequence (but complete). Scattered spotting and occasional marginal sums and annotations, marginal tanning early and late, verso of terminal leaf with 1731 ownership inscription and sums, closed edge tear in top edge of O7, small spot obscuring a few words on BB2r, a few creases at corners, last several leaves a bit darkened and frayed at extreme margins, but generally a sound copy, neatly bound. Second London edition, preceded by the 1644 Paris printing in folio, and the 1645 London edition. Digby's major published work in the field of speculative natural philosophy. The second Treatise is equipped with its own title-leaf, dated 1657, but the register is contiguous."The work is noteworthy on several counts: it contains the first fully developed atomistic system of the seventeenth century, the first important defense in English of Harvey's theory of the circulation, important discussions of reflex action and embryological development, an account of the first recorded patch text for allergy, the fullest early account in English of teaching the deaf to lip-read, and material on behavioral conditioning that anticipates the work of Pavlov. Digby's introduction of Gassendian and Cartesian atomism into England provided Boyle and Newton with the foundation for their achievements in chemistry and physics" - Norman (in reference to the first edition). ESTC R15511. WING D1450. NORMAN LIBRARY 639 (1644 EDITION).

Bibl. danica III, sp. 145. Klemming, Sveriges krig, s. 157. Warmholtz 4656. En av tre tryckvarianter av den berömda krigsrelationen om tåget över Bält, två trycktes i Stockholm och en i Göteborg. En noggrann textkritisk genomgång av dem görs av Arne Stade i uppsatsen "Krigsrelationen om Tågen över Bält" i "Carl X Gustaf och Danmark" (1965), där han även slår fast att Olivekrantz måste vara författaren. Det är en av de viktigaste källorna till tåget över Bält, skriven mycket kort efter händelserna och ansedd bl.a. av Curt Weibull av stort källkritiskt värde. Johan Olivekrantz (1633-1707) hette före adlandet Johan Larsson Paulin, och var son till ärkebiskopen Laurentius Paulinus Gothus. Han var en lärd jurist och gjorde en snabb karriär, dels inom diplomatin, och dels inom Kanslikollegiet. Bland annat representerade han Sverige vid förhandlingarna i Nijmegen. Hans karriär avbröts dock 1680 och under enväldet hade han endast mindre uppdrag, men fortfarande ett stort inofficiellt inflytande, inte minst inom utrikespolitiken

        Les Provinciales,

      London: for Richard Royston, and are to be sold by Robert Clavell, , 1658. or, The mystery of Jesuitisme. Discovered in certain Letters, written upon occasion of the present Differences at Sorbonne, between the Jansenists and the Molinists: displaying the pernicious Maximes of the late Casuists: The second edition corrected: with large Additionals. 12mo, pp. [xxii], 359, [3], 147, [6] index, errata & adverts. Eighteenth-century half calf, lately rebacked with black morocco, marbled sides. Without half-title. Folding plate of St Ignatius and four other Jesuits. The "Additions" have separate title and pagination; the errata refer to both works. Corners worn, a few trivial short marginal tears, a very good copy. Second, greatly enlarged edition, the English translation usually attributed to John Evelyn. The distinguished French mathematician and philosopher Blaise Pascal (1623-1662) was a convinced Jansenist. His clandestinely-printed Provinciales, first published in 1656, include four letters on the fundamental points at issue in the dispute with the Jesuits on grace. Voltaire, hailing Pascal as the first of the French satirists in his Siècle de Louis XIV, reckoned that "these letters may be considered as a model of eloquence and humour. The best comedies of Molière have not more wit than the first part of them; and the sublimity of the latter part is equal to any thing in Bossuet." The Letters were widely reprinted and translated, especially in countries delighted to see the Jesuits attacked.

        rege, adversus sereniss.mum principem, Carolum Gustavum, Suediae &c.

Fint hfrbd från mitten av 1700-talet, rikt guldornerad rygg med upphöjda bind och beige titeletikett, röda snitt. Med B. W. Luxdorphs namnteckning på försättsbladet samt hans förgyllda (men oxiderade) "elefantmärke" på främre pärmen. Spår efter avlägsnat exlibris. Ur Ericsbergs bibliotek. Bibl. danica III, sp. 139. Klemming, Sveriges förhållanden, s. 134. Warmholtz 4614. Den tyske rättslärde Dietrich Theodor Reinkingk (äv. Reincking, Reinking) (1590-1664) hade redan i mitten av 1630-talet stött sig med svenskarna, i det att han som kansler åt Adolph Fredrik av Mecklenburg verkat för stiftandet av Pragfreden. För detta fängslades han av svenskarna. Efter frisläppandet blev han istället kansler åt ärkebiskop Fredrik i Bremen (sedermera Fredrik III av Danmark), hamnade åter på kant med Sverige i samband med Torstenssons krig 1644-45, och fängslades igen. En livskraftig myt berättar att svenskarna tvingade honom att "i gröt upäta" sin förgripliga antisvenska stridsskrift "Dania ad exteros de perfidia Suecorum", vilket man får hoppas inte är sant eftersom denna inte är skriven av honom utan av Gunde Rosenkrantz

Denna variant ej i VD17, men jämför t.ex. 14:080766F. Bibl. danica III, sp. 150. Klemming, Sveriges förhållanden, s. 165. Warmholtz 4680, noten. Brevet är daterat i Hamburg den 11 augusti 1658. VD17 anger Jacob Henrik Paulli som författare men detta förefaller högst osannolikt då denne var dansk diplomat och detta är ett tydligt pro-svenskt propagandastycke. Möjligen har en sammanblandning skett med Johan Larsson Paulin (Olivekrantz), som bl.a. författat relationen om tåget över Bält, och som vid den här tiden befann sig i Tyskland där han varit sekreterare åt den svenska legationen vid kejsarvalet i Frankfurt am Main. I brevet förklaras i punkt efter punkt på vilket sätt Danmark var skuld till att stridigheterna återupptogs, och inte Sverige - även om brevförfattaren medger att det vid en flyktig anblick kunde se ut så. Danskarna påstås till exempel ha prejat svenska handelsfartyg i strid med Roskildefreden, de insisterar på att ön Ven hör till Själland trots att den inte bara ligger geografiskt närmre Skåne utan även placeras där av "den Monumenten der Dänischen Antiquiteten selbst, die vom Hwitfeldio und andern colligiret", och dessutom konspirerar danskarna med Sveriges övriga fiender "zum Verderb der Reiche Schweden"

Klemming, Sveriges krig, s. 157. Warmholtz 4656. En av tre tryckvarianter av den berömda krigsrelationen om tåget över Bält, två trycktes i Stockholm och en i Göteborg. En noggrann textkritisk genomgång av dem görs av Arne Stade i uppsatsen "Krigsrelationen om Tågen över Bält" i "Carl X Gustaf och Danmark" (1965), där han även slår fast att Olivekrantz måste vara författaren. Det är en av de viktigaste källorna till tåget över Bält, skriven mycket kort efter händelserna och ansågs av bl.a. Curt Weibull ha stort källkritiskt värde. Johan Olivekrantz (1633-1707) hette före adlandet Johan Larsson Paulin, och var son till ärkebiskopen Laurentius Paulinus Gothus. Han var en lärd jurist och gjorde en snabb karriär, dels inom diplomatin, och dels inom Kanslikollegiet. Bland annat representerade han Sverige vid förhandlingarna i Nijmegen. Hans karriär avbröts dock 1680 och under enväldet hade han endast mindre uppdrag, men fortfarande ett stort inofficiellt inflytande, inte minst inom utrikespolitiken

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

      [Amsterdam: Visscher, n.d., but c. 1658]. Four hand-coloured copper engraved maps. 19 3/4 x 23 inches. 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.

        Pseudodoxia epidemica: or, enquiries into very many received tenets, and commonly presumed truths. The fourth edition with marginal observations and a table alphabetical

      London: Printed for Edward Dod, 1658. Hardcover. Fourth Edition. Includes three of Browne’s works. 4to. pp. [16], 118, 135-356, 369-468, [16]; [10], 73, [3]. With 1 plate depicting burial urns and a second plate illustrating the quincunx. 1 diagram is included with the text on p. 43 of the final tract. The text of “Pseudodoxia epidemica” is continuous and complete despite the pagination. The vertical half-title to the “Hydriotaphia Urne-Buriall” section is lacking (as is commonly the case). The full “Hydriotaphia” title page is intact. Bound in a later full calf binding with rubbing, wear and no spine label. Outer joints are neatly restored and inner hinges strengthened. Some age-toning and wear are visible on the extremities of the first title page; two tiny d’s are written in an early hand beneath a quote by Julius Scaliger. A small hole is present in a couple of leaves to the index of the “Pseudodoxia,” (obscuring a few letters). Pages are generally clean. The final advertisement leaf is included. Front and rear blank fly leaves are lacking. A sheet of late 19th century handwritten biographical notes is pasted on the inside rear cover. Sir Thomas Browne (1605-1682) was an English physician, antiquarian and essay writer. He was known for his sublime and evocative prose and mystical themes. This volume contains three of Brown’s works: 1.) “Pseudodoxia epidemica” – a treatise in seven parts designed to refute common false beliefs and superstitions. According to EB11 “Sir Thomas evidently takes delight in discussing the wildest fables.” 2.) “Hydriotahia Urne-Buriall” – was written after the discovery of three pre-historic burial urns in Norfolk. The essay reflects on the shortness of human life 3.) “The Garden of Cyrus” – a short work on the mystic symbolism of the quincunx and of the number five.

        Original 1658 Cromwell Legal Declaration, in English and Latin

      1658. Very Good +. 1658 legal proclamation declaring that henceforth all future documents, statutes and the like would conform in tone, tenor and form to that established by Queen Elizabeth. Written in English and Latin by a scribe, not signed by Cromwell. Given that Cromwell died in 1658, this would be one of the last written declarations issued during his life and tenure as "Lord Protector", and was succeeded by his son. On fine parchment, 33.5 x 57 centimeters, with 5cm flap at bottom. Hand-lined in rose ink, with brown india ink script, including ornate initial and upper border. With two old notes of provenance on the verso, marking this as from Francis Brackenbury dated 1690, Thimbleby (North Yorkshire, England). Excellent condition with old slight folds, saddle-stich marks along the perimeter of the vertical edges. Oliver Cromwell (25 April 1599 – 3 September 1658) was an English military and political leader who was part of the joint republican, military and parliamentarian effort that overthrew the Stuart monarchy as a result of the English Civil War, and was subsequently invited by his fellow leaders to assume a head of state role in 1653. As such, Cromwell ruled as "Lord Protector" for a five-year segment (1653–58) of the 11-year period of republican Commonwealth and protectorate rule of England, and nominally of Ireland, Wales and Scotland. As one of the commanders of the New Model Army, he played an important role in the defeat of the King's forces, the royalists in the English Civil War. After the execution of King Charles I in 1649, Cromwell dominated the short- lived Commonwealth of England, conquered Ireland and Scotland, ruling as Lord Protector from 1653 until his death in 1658. On 30 January 1661, (symbolically the 12th anniversary of the execution of Charles I), Oliver Cromwell's body was exhumed from Westminster Abbey, and was subjected to the ritual of a posthumous execution. His body was hanged in chains at Tyburn. Finally, his disinterred body was thrown into a pit, while his severed head was displayed on a pole outside Westminster Hall until 1685.

        Cartes Generales de Toutes les Parties du Monde

      Paris: The Author and Pierre Mariette, 1658 [but 1665]. Folio (17 2/8 x 12 6/8 inches). Title-page with woodcut arms (laid down on contemporary stock), letterpress "Table des Cartes" (extensively repaired on verso). Double-page engraved "Mappemonde ou carte generale" (1651) (repaired on verso with missing text supplied in manuscript), and 130 maps, all hand-colored in outline and mounted on guards throughout (occasional light spotting, browning or marginal dampstaining, last map of Ancient Greece repaired on verso). Late 17th-century calf gilt (spine and corners with early restoration). Provenance: Maps numbered consecutively in a 17th-century hand. A comprehensive edition of Sanson's important work, containing a number of important maps pertaining to the Americas: "Mappemonde ou carte generale" (1651), "L'Hydrographie ou description de L'Eau" (1652), "Harmonie ou Correspondance du Globe" (1659) all showing California as an island; "Amerique Septentrionale" (1650), the first to show all five Great Lakes; "Le Canada, ou Nouvelle France" (1656); "Le Nouveau Mexique et la Floride" (1656); "Mexicque ou Nouvelle Espagne" (1656); "Les Isles Antilles." (1656); "Amerique Meridionale" (1650); "Terre Ferme ou sont les Governations, ou Gouvernemens de Terre Ferme, Cartagene, St. Marthe, Rio De la Hache, Venezuela, Nouvelle Andaluise, Popyan" (1656); "Partie de Terre Ferme ou sont Guiane et Caribane" (1656); "Le Perou et le course de la Rivre Amazone" (1656); "Le Chili" (1656); "Le Bresil" (1656); "Le Paraguayr, Le Chili, et Les Isles Magellanicques" (1656); "Les Deux Poles." (1657); and "Orbis Vetus." (1657). The maps in this Atlas date from 1632 "Carte Geographique des Postes qui traversent la France" by Melchior Tavernier through to 1665. The maps were compiled by Nicolas Sanson who first published his atlas in 1654, with 100 maps, and engraved and printed by Pierre Mariette; each held the copyright to half of the maps which bear their separate imprints, and were issued progressively from 1630. Born in Abbeville, a town in the Picardy region of France, in 1600, Sanson was the most noted French cartographer in modern history. Mapmaker to Louis XIV, King of France, Sanson endowed his maps with the most recent geographical information as well as the finest and sharpest engraving of the period. His "Cartes Generales de Toutes les Parties du Monde" was the most important single product of French commercial cartography of the seventeenth century. Sanson sparked a renaissance in geographical endeavor in his native country, which had not been a major player on the international cartographic stage since the great Oronce Finé in the sixteenth century. With this atlas, Sanson laid the foundations of French domination in map production, initiating the so-called "French school of cartography," a school that was unprecedented in its attention to precision and scientific detail and discarded much of the decorative embellishments of previous maps as irrelevant. From Sanson's time in the second half of the seventeenth century until the latter part of the eighteenth century, French geographical conceptions were more influential than those put forward by any other nation. With this landmark atlas, Sanson all but single-handedly caused the center of cartographic innovation to shift from Holland to France. The index calls for 113 titles, but as was often the case more maps have been added to this copy at the time of purchase. Cf. NMM 3, 271..

Det första arbetet är en engelsk översättning av "Historia della sacra real Maestà di Christina Alessandra regina di Svetia", gjord av John Burbery. Boken, som är en hyllningsskrift till konvertiten Kristina, handlar huvudsakligen om hennes abdikation och resa genom Europa till Rom, och utgör den huvudsakliga källan till kunskap rörande resan. Många detaljer härrör troligen från Kristina själv eller från hennes närmaste omgivning. Galeazzo Conte Gualdo Priorato (1606-78) var italiensk historiker och soldat. Han deltog i nästan hela det trettioåriga kriget, bl.a. under Moritz av Nassau och Wallenstein, men även på den protestantiska sidan. Efter kriget blev han diplomat och författare till ett flertal arbeten. Under en period var han även verksam som kammarherre hos drottning Kristina i Rom, utnämnd på rekommendation av Mondescalco. Det andra arbetets översättare W. L. Gent är förmodligen en pseudonym för William Lisle

        Indiae utriusque Re naturali et medica libri quatuordecim, Quorum contenta pagina sequens exhibet. (3 Parts).

      Amsterdam, L. & D. Elzevir, 1658. Folio. (36x23 cm.). Contemp. full sprinckled calf. Professionally rebacked preserving orig. spine, richly gilt in 7 compartments. Gilt lineborders on covers. All edges gilt. (24) pp. incl. engraved title,327,(5),39,(1),226,(2) pp. including the 2 subtitles (Marcgraf & Bontius) and in the text around 650 fine wood-cut illustrations (fish, birds, plants, snakes, insects and other animals). The engraved title (with Dodo, Rhinoceros etc.) mounted and a small tear at bottom repaired without loss. Some quires slightly brownspotted and last few leaves a little browned and with faint dampstaining to margins in "Index Rerum".. First edition under this title of the only illustrated work on Brazilian natural history and native medicine until the nineteenth century. This work, sometimes called the second edition, is a revised and much extended, also with numerous new woodcuts, version of "Historia Naturalis Brasiliae, Leiden & Amsterdam, 1648". This last work appeared while Piso was still in Brazil, and he was most unhappy with the editing of his material. On returning to Holland, he produced this complete and full edition of his work, combining with it the material from the researches of Geoge Marcgraf, who died in 1644. Piso's work includes many descriptions of diseases and the native remedies for them, yaws, dysentery etc. etc., and established the author as one of the earliest authorities on tropical medicine. He intended the work to be a handbook of tropical medicine, pharmacology, and natural history. The work includes Marcgraf's observations at the first American observatory at Recife "Tractatus Topographicus & Meteerologicus Brasiliæ, cum Eclipsi Solari;.." - Hunt: 280 - Nissen BBI: 1533 - Pritzel: 7177 - Garrison & Morton: 1825 - Wood p. 520 - Junk, Rara p. 50. - Wellcome IV p. 393

Med en handskriven tillskrift till Johann Georg Schweyckheuser från Bernhard Wagner daterad den 15 augusti 1713, Bibliotheca Heberianas stpl, Johann Lorenz Blessigs och ytterligare ett oidentifierat exlibris.. VD17 23:231187M. Med latinsk, grekisk och tysk text. En tryckt dedikation till Karl X Gustav. Tillskriften undertecknad av Bernhard Wagner, teologie doktor, till Johann Georg Schweyckheuser "theologia studioso industrio", som var respondent för dissertationen "Theologica de indremento in sanctitatis studio fasciendo: ex I. Thess. cap V. vers. 23" med Johann Heinrich Barth som preses i Strassbourg den 15 augusti 1713. Johann Lorenz Blessig (1747-1816) var tysk protestantisk präst och universitetslärare. Han föddes och dog i Strassbourg. Efter universitetsstudier där, reste han i Italien, Ungern och Tyskland, började predika och befordrades så småningom föreståndare för den protestantiska kyrkan i Strassbourg. Han blev professor vid den filosofiska fakulteten vid universitetet i sin hemstad 1778 och vid den teologiska 1787. Han utnämndes till rektor tre gånger och hans föreläsningar täckte områden som grekisk litteratur, filosofins historia, Gamla testamentets exegetik, dogmatik och homiletik. Hans exlibris avbildar en biblioteksinteriör. Det uppsving som boksamlandet hade i England under slutet av 1700- och början av 1800-talet nådde sin höjdpunkt och fall i samband med avvecklandet av det enorma bibliotek som samlats av Richard Heber (1773-1833), en bibliofil utan sin like. Han brukade säga att "en man måste ha åtminstone tre exemplar av en bok, en för att visa upp, en för att läsa och en för att låna ut". Från 1800 till 1830 köpte han vid samtliga auktioner i London, antingen i eget namn eller genom sina agenter. När han dog fyllde hans böcker två hus i London, ett i Hodnet, ett i Oxford, ett i Gent och ett i Paris för att inte tala om de böcker som fanns deponerade i mindre bokaffärer i Bryssel, Antwerpen och andra städer på kontinenten. Det totala antalet volymer i hans bibliotek måste ha varit någonstans mellan tvåhundratusen och trehundratusen och det är tveksamt om någon annan privatperson ägt så många böcker. Det behövdes sexton bokauktioner för att skingra det Heberska biblioteket, tretton i London, två i Paris och en i Gent. Londonauktionernas totala försäljning uppgick till 56.774 pund för böcker som hade kostat den tidigare ägaren en bra bit över 100.000 pund. Marknaden var fullständigt översåld

        Sweedsche Spiegel: Daer in niet aleen klaerelijck te sien is, maer oock beweesen wordt, wat de sweeden voor oprechte, goede, vroome christenen zijn [...] Den sweeden tot een bekeeringe en beteringe, en anderen tot een waerschowinge, gestelt door Philotheum Warnern van Warhuysen.

      Utan ort, (1658) [Årtalschiffret "Anno ô DeVs LargIre hIs ContrItIoneM" ger 1659 men detta är enligt Klemming felaktigt]. 4:o. 88 s. Litet hål i s. 63 med bokstavsförluster. Häftad i blått pappomslag, spricka upptill i ryggen. Klemming, Sveriges förhållanden, s. 170f. Warmholtz 4737 för den tyska översättningen, "En den grofvaste och ogudaktigaste smädeskrift, som någonsin blifvit trykt emot Sweriges konungar och hela svenska nationen. Författaren genomgår tijo Guds bud, visandes vid hvart och et, huru grufveligen de svenske sig deremot försyndat". Bland annat jämförs det "karga och usla Sverige" och "djävulska Lappland" med israeliternas slaveri i Egypten medan Pommern och Bremen liknas vid landet som flödar av mjölk och honung. Alltså strider svenskarnas styre i Pommern och Bremen-Verden mot Guds heliga ordning!
