Title-page in red and black, engraved frontispiece portrait, 14 engraved plates (all but two double-page), and 30 engravings, all but one full-page (Dance of Death half-page), and one small mounted portrait of Sir Philip Sydney, by Wenceslaus Hollar. In 3 parts, each with separate title page. Pagination irregular. Complete. Old dark calf, spine renewed with morocco lettering piece. Bookplate.

Wing D2482; Pforzheimer 341; ESTC R16413; Upcott, pp. 694-698 . "With the spectacle close at hand of the great church slowly deteriorating from years of maltreatment and sacrilegious use, Dugdale rapidly compiled The History of St Paul's Cathedral, which was published in 1658. Not only did this book print the surviving documentary records of the cathedral, it also preserved the appearance of the building. Its Norman and Gothic details and the alterations made by Inigo Jones in the 1630s were recorded in extensive plates, once again prepared by Hollar, several of them based on drawings made by William Sedgwick in 1641. With the destruction of the cathedral in the great fire of 1666 Dugdale's book became the lasting memorial of old St Paul's." - DNB

JUSTINIAN. VINNIUS (Arnoldus)
Amstelaedami Ex Officina Elzdeviriana, 1658. 12mo, 133 x 71 mm.s, pp. [xxiv], 643 [644 - 646 blank], with fine additional engraved title-page, with the Elzevir device as vignette on the printed title-page, contemporary red morocco, gilt-ruled border on each cover, spine richly gilt in compartments, all edges gilt; slight wear to base of spine, but generally a very good and attractive copy, with two early, probably contemporary hand-written ownership labels on the front paste-down end-paper: "Jullienne" and "J. B. Q. Malaclie." It would be pleasant to think that the first label and autograph is that of the art collector Jean de Jullienne (1686 - 1766). Arnoldus Vinnius (1588 - 1657) was one of the leading jurists of Europe in the 17th century, and this commentary on Justinian is his most important work. His commentary on Justinian, with the text, was first published in 1642, and this was the first edition to be published after his death. In his autobiography, My Own Life, David Hume noted that his "Family [had] a Notion that the Law was a proper Profession for me: But I found an unsurmountable Aversion to every thing but the Pursuits of Philosophy and general Learning; and while they fancyed that I was poring over Voet and Vinnius, Cicero and Virgil were the Authors which I was secretly devouring."

Poggendorff I, 849 - Zweiter Band aus der ersten Gesamtausgabe. Gassendi (1592-165) war eine der zentralen Gestalten der Descartes-Zeit. Für die Geschichte der Philosophie hat er nicht nur die Bedeutung als empiristischer und skeptischer Kritiker der "Meditationen", sondern vor allem als Epikur-Rezeptor. Die Physik wird bei ihm zu einem autonomen Bereich, der mit der Metaphysik nicht mehr innerlich verbunden ist. (vgl. Schischkoff, Monogr. zur philsoph. Forschung)

ALENCE, Joachim d'
First edition of this beautifully illustrated treatise on the magnet and its uses, dealing with the invention of the compass, magnetic mountains in America, declination and the orientation of the compass-needle in a magnetic field. The plates are etchings by Adriaan Schoonebeek (1658-1705), the pupil of Romeyn de Hooghe and a prolific book-illustrator. They recall Sébastien Le Clerc's <i>Pratique de la geometrie</i> (Paris, 1669), where geometrical diagrams float above fanciful landscapes. In D'Alencé's plates, however, though most of the landscapes and rustic scenes seem unrelated to the scientific content, one or two provide a commentary. For example, fig. 18, illustrated by Hofer, shows a violent explosion with bodies flying in all directions, which Hofer suggests illustrates the magnet's potential.<br/><br/> The finely engraved frontispiece is described by Park Benjamin, in his <i>Intellectual Rise in Electricity</i> (London, 1895), as follows. "The lodestone, disposed in a bowl after the mode suggested by Neckam and Peregrinus, and marked with a longitudinal directing line, appears floating in front of the vessel, which the mariner, holding a rudder in one hand and a compass in the other, is about to board. The goddess, who appears to be advising him, points to the Great Bear, represented by the actual animal in the heavens, with the Pole Star situated at its tail, and also to a compass and a dipping needle, while in her left hand she has a sounding line. The idea evidently intended is that the divinity is advising the sailor to avail himself of all these means of guid … [Click Below for Full Description]

"Im Jahre 1658 erschien eine Schrift, "Heutelia" betitelt (anagrammatisch gebildet aus "Helvetia"), die Beschreibung einer Schweizerreise, in welcher die staatlichen und gesellschaftlichen Zustände einzelner Kantone von schroff aristokratischem Standpunkt aus blossgelegt werden. Zur Sprache kommt die feile Justiz, die Aemtersucht, die Habgier und Bestechlichkeit der Landvögte., die geistige Trägheit und Versumpfung der Bürger, die schlechte Jugenderziehung, die unduldsame, dogmensüchtige Geistlichkeit beider Konfessionen, der Aberglaube, die Hexenprozesse."

Porta, John Baptista
London: For Thomas Young and Samuel Speed, 1658. First English language edition of Porta's Magiae naturalis libri viginti, originially published in 1558. Full contemporary speckled calf, stamped in blind with gilt faintly visible on the spine and spine label split. An honest, unsophisticated copy if somewhat worn and a little tired, complete with the engraved title by R. Gaywood and the printed title in red and black. Folio (pages 261 x 173 mm), collating: [4 blanks], [engraved title], [printed title], [4 Reader's Preface], 1-128, 131, 130-384, 381-388, 393-409, [1 blank], [6 Table of Contents], [4 blanks]; complete. This translation is based on the expanded 1589 edition of Porta's "Magiae naturalis." & & It is an uncritical compilation of the fantastical and the empirical, discussing subjects such as demonology, magnetism, alchemical secrets, the beautification of women and the camera obscura. "Porta was the first to add a concave lens to the aperture of the camera obscura, and his comparison of the camera lens to the pupil of the eye provided an easily understood demonstration that the source of visual images lay outside the eye, thus ending a centuries-old controversy." (Norman 1726) A wonderful, early pseudo-scientific work offering a small glimpse into the learning of the time.

BISACCIONI, Maiolino (1582-1663).
Madrid, por Diego Diaz de la Carrera, Impressor del Reyno, a costa de Manuel López, Mercader de Libros, 1658. 4to.; 8 hs., 408 pp., 4 hs. Encuadernación en pergamino, de la época. Primera edicion española de la obra del conde ferrariense Bisaccioni, gentilhombre de Luis XIV y perfecta encarnación del aventurero de altura. La traducción se debe al Preceptor de Carlos II, Don Diego López de Albornoz, quien utiliza para aleccionadores fines hispánicos lo sucedido en Inglaterra a la cabeza de Carlos I (1600-1649) haciendo ver cuan útil sea la Historia al Príncipe "mostrando en agenos escarmientos lo que se deve seguir, lo que huir y lo que con buen arte se deve apartar".

SIDNEY, Algernon
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 Algern … [Click Below for Full Description]

Importante edizione del libro delle prognosi ippocratiche tradotto dal greco da Louis Duret e completato poi dal figlio Jean. Diviso in sezioni, con testo greco e latino intercalato, eccellente sintesi delle conoscenze mediche classiche, di grande valore storico. Il volume soffre alcune fioriture peraltro stabilizzate afferenti l'ultimo terzo delle carte dovute a conservazione in luogo umido, per il resto è sicuramente in stato più che buono, carta greve e bianca, ancor nerbata. assai poco reperibile.

OLIVEKRANTZ, Johan.)
Stockholm, 1658. 4:o. (16) s. Warmholtznummer på titelbladet. Tagen ur band. Ur Ericsbergs bibliotek. 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.

(REINKINGK, Dietrich Theodor.)
Köpenhamn, P. Morsing, 1658. 4:o. 60 s. Fuktrand i övre, och mot slutet även i nedre marginalen. De avslutande bladen lagerfläckiga. 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.

Utan ort, (1658). 4:o. (12) s. Häftad. 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".
