Orig. kobberstik. København (1658). Lysmål/plademål: 46,2x37,1 cm. Lidt plettet i øverste halvdel af billedfeltet. Tæt beskåret. I smuk 1800-tals guldramme. * Sthyr 196. Westergaard 10891.

First 22 pages of 52 page sermon. Nathaniel Hardy (16191670) was dean of Rochester. He was on of the few unmolested royalists. He preached on a variety of notable occasions. In 1646 he preached at the anniversary sermon of the Gunpowder Plot, and he turned it into a condemnation of the civil war. During the Commonwealth and the protectorate Hardy became a favourite preacher of the royalists or neo-royalists. He preached at the funerals of Sir John Gayre in 1649 and Richard Goddard in 1653. In 1654 he preached on the Act Sunday at the University of Oxford. In 1653 and 1658 he delivered farewell sermons respectively for the voyages of Sir Thomas Bendish, the English resident at Constantinople, and Nathaniel Wych, president of the East India Company. On 27 May 1658 he preached at the yearly feast of native London citizens, and on 13 June, five days after the execution of Dr John Hewit for royalist conspiracy, he preached what was generally thought to be Hewit's funeral sermon at St Gregory by Paul.

La Varenne François Pierre de
Paris: Pierre David, 1658. Early Edition. Hardcover (Full Leather). Very Good Condition. Contemporary full leather, spine gilt wih 5 raised bands. Corners worn, hinge cracked but binding sound. Light foxing and browning in spots, generally quite clean. (xvi),414. Cagle 262 (the 1653), Vicaire 496 (the 1654), Bitting 275 (the 1656 Hague), Oberle 82 (the 1686). An early Paris edition of the first great French cookbook and the first book of haute cuisine. Originally published in 1651 in Paris by Pierre David - all early editions, and especially all early Paris editions, are scarce. Though La Varenne mixes earlier medieval recipes in with the more modern fare (blancmange, venison pie with foye gras en ragoust), the overall effect was groundbreaking as La Varenne's genius and recent inventions like the fork and plate (replacing the bread trencher) conspired to change cookery forever. Size: 8vo (octavo). Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilo. Category: Cooking, Wine & Dining; Inventory No: CAT000074.

(mm. 520x370), legatura alle armi in p. pelle bazana coeva (restaurata; rifatto in pelle mod. il dorso a cordoni con filetti e tit. oro su tassello), cornice e stemma dorati ai piatti. Rarissima "edizione originale" di questa mitica opera, fra le più ricercate di tutta la storia della letteratura equestre, di cui offriamo soltanto la parte iconografica così composta: - antiporta incisa, a doppia pagina + 42 tavole, pure a doppia pagina, incise in rame e numerate. Magnifiche sono le illustrazioni, per numero e qualità: disegnate da Abraham van Diepenbeke di Anversa ed incise in rame da vari illustri artisti di questa città, le tavole sono impostate come vere e proprie composizioni pittoriche e, similmente a quelle del Pluvinel, fanno riferimento alla storia. Vi figurano: parecchi ritratti dell'A. nella sua apoteosi (su un carro trionfale trascinato da centauri e circondato da cavalli inginocchiati; in volo a cavallo circondato da cavalli seduti, ecc,), personaggi della sua famiglia, il Re Carlo II d'Inghilterra, come pure castelli, dimore, parchi, ecc., sullo sfondo. Per lo più le tavole rappresentano "des chevaux, des airs de manège, des haras, des chasses, des mors et des épérons, etc. Malgré les incorrections de dessin dans la représentation des chevaux - comme toujours à cette époque - ces planches ont une véritable valeur artistique..

London, Henry Hills, for Adoniram Byfield 1658. (68) 709 p. Rebound half Leather with ribbed back and richly decorated with stamps, Folio (with multiple engravings in the text, without the map and portrait of the author. Samuel Morland 1625-1695, was a diplomatist, mathematician and inventor. In 1655 Morland was sent by Oliver Cromwell on a mission to Italy to protest at actions taken against the Waldensians by the Duke of Savoy. During his residence in Geneva, Morland prepared minutes, and provured records, vouchers and attestations from which he might compile a correct history of the Waldenses. In 1656 Morland arrived at Whitehall, and shortly afterwards received the thanks of a select committee appointed by Cromwell to inquire into his proceedings. Two years later he published this work, 'The History of the Evangelical Churches of the Valleys of Piemont &c.' This volume, which was illustrated with sensational prints of the supposed sufferings of the Waldenses, 'operated like Fox's Book of Martyrs'.).

Isendoorn (Gisbertus ab)
Oxford: by R. Blagrave for W. Hall, 1658. title within a border of printer's ornaments, defective however, with loss of border at the fore-margin but without loss of text, and mounted, some damp-staining in the lower margins and worming, affecting the text, pp. [viii], 720, [16], 8vo, contemporary calf, double blind ruled borders on sides with an off centre double rule to the left, horizontal blind pairs of rules on spine, spine defective at foot, crude repairs, lower edges worn, sound. Isendoorn was a professor at Deventer, and the work was first published at Harderwyyk in 1654. 'As if students of logic were not sufficiently burdened with Berewood, Sanderson, and Smith, this reprint [of the Dutch edition] of Isendoorn (omitting the third index, in spite of the title) was dumped on Oxford by Blagrave. It is the dullest and longest of the four, but is surpassed by the Smiglesius of the same year, in which the same publisher participated. It was time for the Merry Monarch to supervene' (Madan). If Isendoorn was dumped on Oxford, Oxford seems to have returned the compliment, since not many copies are recorded in ESTC, only one of them in Oxford itself (3 others in the UK, 2 in North America).

BLAEU, Willem.
Amsterdam: [1658] - Size: 480 × 575 mm. Copperplate engraving with hand colour. Very minor thinning to central fold, some margins a little uneven, but otherwise in good condition. Blaeu's reissue of Hessel Gerritsz's rare and influential map of Russia. This fine map was compiled from manuscripts brought back from Russia, by Isaac Massa to whom the large inset plan of Moscow is said to be attributed. The map was first issued by Hessel Gerritsz in 1613. Blaeu published it after acquiring the plate after Gerritsz's death in 1632. This edition has Dutch text on the verso. This superb map has many interesting and decorative features, including; a detailed inset plan of Moscow, complete with a seventeen letter key of prominent public buildings and churches; a compass rose and a galleon in the Caspian Sea; a small inset view of the northerly port of Archangel; three Russian men in local dress and a magnificent map title and dedication.

Mandelslo, Johann Albrecht von.
Hamburg, Christian Guth (printed by Johan Holwein, Schleswig), 1658.. Folio. (32), 248, (36) pp. With engraved frontispiece by Christian Rothgiesser, full-page engraved author's portrait, double-page engraved map, and 21 large engravings in text, mostly signed by Rothgiesser; woodcut initials and head- and tailpieces. Contemporary blind-ruled leather, remnants of ties.. First complete German edition of an important and entertaining travel account by Johann Albrecht von Mandelslo, edited by Adam Olearius. Mandelslo was attached to the diplomatic mission of Frederick III, Duke of Holstein-Gottorp, to Moscow and Persia. Frederick's aim was to negotiate a new trade route for Persian silk and to make his small duchy an important centre of European silk trade. After visiting Moscow, the mission continued along the Volga to Astrakhan and from there to Persia, crossing the Caspian Sea near Shamakhi. Via Ardabil, Qazvin and Kasan the party finally reached the capital, Isfahan. The ambassadors remained in Persia for several months (only to return without concrete results), but Mandelslo travelled further to the east. He sailed from Hormuz to Surat and proceeded through Gujarat to Agra, Lahore, Goa, Bijapur and Malaba, visiting Ceylon, Madagascar, the Cape of Good Hope and St. Helena on his return voyage in 1639. Before his death 5 years later, he had entrusted his rough notes to Olearius, who subsequently published them with a third part containing descriptions of the Coromandel coast, Bengal, Siam, Sumatra, Java, Borneo, Bantam, the Philippines, Formosa (Tai-wan), China and Japan.
