Exiled in Paris after the English civil war, Digby studied chemistry under the Scottish royal physician, William Davidson. He had "cured his friend James Howell, then the duke of Buckingham's secretary, of a sword-cut in the hand by dissolving some powdered vitriol crystals in water and plunging into the mixture a cloth stained with blood from the wound. The pain in Howell's hand, some yards away, immediately ceased … Many were convinced by Digby's evidence, including Joseph Glanvill, … [Click Below for Full Description]

Reeve, John, & Lodowick Muggleton
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.

Charron, Peter
London: Printed for Luke Fawne. VG+. 1658. Hardcover. Rebacked with five raised bands on spine and spine label bearing gilt titles, corners repaired, recent endpapers, first leaf (A1) with contemp ink inscription to verso, engraved title page, title page of 1st book (B7) with contemp signature, a few minor marks and very small worm holes to lower margins and final blank leaf missing small strip from lower edge, pp. [28] 524 [24]. For this, his most famous work, Charron borrowed heavily from the Essays of his friend Michel de Montaigne. Charron shares Montaigne's scepticism but perhaps the book is most significant for its championing of reason rather than religion as the basis for morality, something for which Charron would be labelled 'a brutal atheist', despite Charron's view that in matters of faith a man should be 'simple and obedient' and allow himself to be led by public authority. , 8vo 8" - 9" tall .

Osborn Francis
Oxford: By H.H. for Tho. Robinson, 1658, 1658, 1662. 3 books bound as one volume. 6th edition and very early printing of "Advice to a Son", First edition of "Advice the Second Part" and third edition of the collection of discourses. 12mo, full near contemporary calf, the spine gilt tooled in three compartments between gilt ruled bands, one compartment with a brown morocco label gilt lettered and decorated. [A1-4], 188, [8]; [xi], 189, [3]; [iv], 194. Internally very well preserved, quite crisp and fresh with only minor and less then expected evidence of age, the binding without restoration and with some age-wear, still a solid copy. SCARCE WORKS BY ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR WRITERS OF HIS DAY, including his most famous, ADVICE TO A SON. His "Advice" was one of the best known works at the time of its initial publication in 1656 but was also extremely controversial. The first edition was published anonymously, Osborn did not attach his name to the work till 1658. In it he argues against the Monarchy, Marriage, Women and libraries. After this 1658 publication the book was suppressed by the Vice Chancellor and after the Restoration it was brought before the House of Lords as treasonous. The "Advice" is broken down into five major categories; Studies, Love and Marriage, Travel, Government, and Religion. The second part was even more combustible, but did not meet with the same popularity. The third book included here contains a very early English discourse on Machiavelli, Osborn's well researched work on the Turkish Government and several other short discourses.

VAN LOON, Jan (c. 1611 - 1686)
[Amsterdam: Jansson, circa 1658]. Hand-coloured copper engraved map. Extensively and expertly restored where image had been cut. 19 3/4 x 23 1/2 inches. 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

Riverii, Lazari
Hague, Netherlands: Adrianum Vlacq, 1658. Full calf 5 raised bands with gilt spine lettering on red morocco labels. Spines have been replaced and calf is tan rather than darker calf of original boards. All edges red laquered after binding in which pages were trimmed. The trimming of the pages in volume one is quite close in some cases. Preliminaries and postliminaries were replaced when the rebinding was done. Board edges shelfworn with some bumps and corners also bumped with some loss of leather. Owner signature on ffeps. The author was a professor of medicine at the University of Montpellier, and was physician and councillor to the King of France. These volumes probably comprise all the medicine known at the time, and appear to cover the entire human body from the head to the intestinal system, with at least fifty pages devoted to angina in volume two. Done in Latin, this pair of books seems to be the textbook of medicine of its time just as Harrison was in the twentieth century.. Ninth Edition. Full-Leather. Good/No Jacket. 16mo - over 5¾" - 6¾" tall. Trade.

SEXBY, Edward)].
Lugduni, Anno, 1658. - in-12. 1f. 94pp. Plein veau dos à nerfs orné (Reliure du XVIIIs.). Première édition française très rare de cette apologie morale et politique du tyrannicide. Paru en anglais l'année précédente sous le titre de "Killing no Murder" sous le pseudonyme de William Allen, l'ouvrage est aujourd'hui attribué à Edward Sexby (1616-1658), opposant à Cromwell et auteur d'une conspiration pour l'assassiner. Ce texte s'insère historiquement dans le courant philosophique qui accompagne la réflexion sur la démocratie et les libertés civiles et politiques. Il fut réédité au moment de la Révolution Française (1793) où le roi fut assimilé à un tyran. En 1790 une initiative relayée par le journal "Les Révolutions de Paris" prônait l'organisation d'une "Légion de Brutus" pour délivrer l'Europe de ses "tyrans".

VISSCHER, Nicolaes (1649-1702)
[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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

PASCAL, Blaise
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.

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 … [Click Below for Full Description]
