We offer a rare map of the Holy Land by Jan Jansson. The plate size is 14” x 19” on handmade paper, housed in a double sided frame to reveal the text on verso. This map features a large cartouche in the upper left corner, flanked by Moses and Aaron and an illustration at the lower right of the two spies, Caleb and Joshua, carrying the grapes of Canaan; both are vividly hand colored. As described in the Library of Congress: This hand-colored copperplate map of the Holy Land, featuring notable cities from the Bible, appeared in Le Theatre du Monde ou Nouvel Atlas (Theater of the World, or New Atlas), a work by Jan Jansson (1588-1664) that was published in Amsterdam circa 1658. It depicts the kingdoms of Judea and Israel, along with territory stretching north to present-day Beirut and land on both sides of the Jordan River as far south as the Dead Sea. It also includes a key to major cities, priestly towns, and towns belonging to the Philistines. The map is an exact copy of the “Typus chorographicus” of Abraham Ortelius (1527-98), which was adapted from a map by the German cartographer, geographer, and mathematician Tilemann Stella (circa 1525-89). This map was first published by Jansson in 1652 in his Accuratissima Orbis Antiqui Delineation (Atlas of the Ancient World). Condition: There is a water stain at the lower right margin that blends in with the hand colored border, otherwise the map is in good condition, though it has not been examined out of its frame.

PASCAL, Blaise
Nicolaus Schouten [ie. Leyden: Jean Elzevir], Cologne, 1658. 8vo. pp. 16 pp 608 2pp(errata) woodcutornaments & initials. Bound in full original calf, spine richly gilt 5 raised bands. Manuscript annotations in Latin and Greek on first two blanks. First Edition in Latin, pseudonymously translated by Port-Royal moralist and theologian Pierre Nicole, of the Lettres Provinciales, the most important ethical work of Pascal and one of the great classics of French prose. Written in response to the Jesuit attacks on Jansenism which culminated in the condemnation by the Sorbonne at the end of 1655 of Antoine Arnauld, the chief light of Port Royal, the Lettres were originally issued clandestinely in a series of eighteen separate parts between January 23, 1656 and January 15, 1657. "Pascal s counter-attack took the form of a brilliant exposure of the casuistical methods of argument employed by the Jesuits. It was at the time a magnificent sustained invective, after which the Jesuits never recovered their former position in France (it was largely responsible for the traditional bad name they still, less deservedly, bear), and a noble defence of thought in religious faith. Pascal s weapon was irony, and the freshness with which the gravity of the subject contrasts with the lightness of the manner is an enduring triumph. The vividness and distinction of his style recalls the prose of Milton at its best." (PMM) Brunet IV 396. Rand I p. 395. Rahir 829 (with final errata leaf, not called for by Willems). Willems 829.

BALZAC, Jean-Louis Guez de;
Paris, Augustin Courbé, 1658. Petit in-4 de (3) ff., 244 pp., (10) de tables et privilège, vélin ivoire, titre manuscrit à l'encre brune au dos, tranches nues (reliure de l'époque). Édition originale du "Grand ?uvre" de Balzac. Frontispice gravé par Grégoire Huret (1606-1670) : Minerve dans un habit fleurdelysé, tenant d'une main une lance et un rameau d'olivier, appuyée sur un écu aux armes de Suède, le pied sur la tête de la Gorgone. Vignette de titre gravée. Paru quatre ans après la mort de Balzac, Aristippe représente le travail de toute une vie, tant sur le plan formel, dans la maîtrise de la langue, que du fond, avec les idées politiques et la philosophie du pouvoir développée. Le succès de cet ouvrage contribua à la gloire posthume de l'auteur. "Son Aristippe est sans doute ce qu'il a fait de plus beau" (Chapelain à N. Heinsius, 1657). En 1631, la publication du Prince, bien peu conforme aux attentes de son puissant commanditaire, Richelieu, avait entraîné avec le cardinal ministre, une rupture que la réédition, fort peu corrigée, de 1634 ne chercha pas véritablement à réparer. C'est donc avec tout son esprit d'indépendance que Balzac entreprend cette réflexion - sur un mode augustinien - sur les m?urs de la Cour, cherchant le moyen de concilier devoir et politique, et n'hésitant pas à dénoncer les vices des Grands avec la plus grande liberté. Devant l'opposition du "tyran" Richelieu, Balzac conserve ce projet dans ses portefeuilles jusqu'en 1644. Prétendant à nouveau jouer un rôle politique après la mort de "l'homme rouge", Balzac envisage de dédier son ouvrage, sou … [Click Below for Full Description]

BROWNE, Sir Thomas
London: For Henry Brome 1658. First edition. 8vo (164x107mm). pp. xiv, 1 plate, 202 (although final page misprinted 102). Contemporary calf, with some repairs to the joints. A little cracking to the hinge but the binding is sound. Light water staining to some leaves. Included are the rarely found last three leaves: "The Stationer to the Reader", "Books printed for Hen. Broome " and a page on which is printed sideways in large type: "Dr Browne's Garden of Cyrus". On the recto of the final blank leaf is the handwritten note: "Perfect (without the leaf of Errata found in only a few copies) H. Bernard Quaritch Ltd". Loosely inserted are two catalogue entries describing this book, the latter of which has a handwritten note: "Maggs 1958". Despite its fame and influence, this strange, melancholy book remains hard to pin down. It begins as a work of East Anglian archaeology and antiquarianism but expands into a spiritual reflection on fate, death and immortality. "It is the heaviest stone that melancholy can throw at a man, to tell him he is at the end of his nature; or that there is no further state to come". It is tempting to see Browne's hope for the hereafter as consolation for the disorder of the years of the Civil War and Protectorate. His sympathies were with the King and, like many Royalists, his intellectual leanings, expressed in the most glorious prose, were spiritual, metaphysical and ethereal. Urne-Buriall reaches its climax with Browne's celebrated assertion that "Life is a pure flame, and we live by an invisible Sun within us".

Prima edizione di questo trattato di astronomia, scritto in forma di dialogo fra l'autore e l'anti-copernicano Libert Froidmont (11587-1658), che contiene interessanti osservazioni astronomiche e tratta inoltre di ottica, comete e galassie. L'opera comprende 183 sezioni e fu scritta in risposta alla Lettera al Principe Leopoldo di Toscana, detta anche sul candor lunare, scritta da Galileo nel 1640, di cui sono riportati ampi stralci. Nella sua opera Litheosphorus (Udine, 1640) Liceti aveva attaccato Galileo, contestando le spiegazioni contenute nel Sidereus Nuncius e nel Dialogo circa la luce secondaria della Luna. In risposta Galileo scrisse diverse lettere, tra cui una inviata al principe Leopoldo, che aveva espressamente richiesto di conoscere l'opinione di Galileo a riguardo. La lettera a Leopoldo ebbe circolazione manoscritta e fu più volte rivista ed aumentata fino a diventare un vero e proprio saggio di cinquanta pagine a stampa. Liceti ne ricevette una copia nel febbraio del 1641, replicando immediatamente con la presente opera. Il pres … [Click Below for Full Description]

PARACELSUS, [Theophrastus Philippus Aureolus Bombastus von Hohenheim].
Geneva: Sumptibus Joan. Antonii, & Samuelis De Tournes. 1658. First Tournes edition. A fine copy, in contemporary vellum and with the often missing portrait, of "the best and most complete edition of Paracelsus' collected works" (Neville). ❧Dibner, Heralds of Science, no. 124. "According to Sudhoff, bibliographer of Paracelsus' works, this compendium of the works of Paracelsus, edited by Friedrich Bitiskius, is the most complete of the Latin collected editions. It contains virtually all of Paracelsus' medical and philosophical writings, as well as Tintoretto's beautiful portrait of Paracelsus, which is often missing" (Heirs of Hippocrates no. 215). "Philippus Aureolus Theophratus Bobastus von Hohenheim, also known as Paracelsus, remains one of the most controversial and remarkable personalities of the Renaissance. He has been described as a quack, a magician, and astrologer, and alchemist, as well as a brilliant physician, prophet, and genius. Sir William Osler called him the 'Luther of medicine,' and Fielding Garrison lauded him as 'the most original thinker of the sixteenth century.' He was perhaps all of these ... "His introduction of a new concept of disease, based on the idea that each disease is due to a specific external cause, [was] to replace the ancient notion of disease as an internal idiosyncratic imbalance of humors. Paracelsus's new idea of disease led him to new modes of therapy, using specific agents (often chemically derived) to battle against specific diseases. His followers founded the school of iatrochemistry, which flourished in Europe over the next cen … [Click Below for Full Description]

Medico personale di Carlo IX e di Enrico III di Francia, docente al Collège de France, Louis Duret (Bâgé-la-Ville, 1527- 1586) fu celebre fisico e medico del suo tempo. La profonda conoscenza delle lingue classiche lo portò ad approfondire le teorie di Ippocrate (Coo, 460 circa - 377 a.c.), considerato il padre della medicina, che era uso, sembra, citare a memoria, tanto da essere soprannominato l'Ippocrate di Francia. Nel presente testo, pubblicato la prima volta a Parigi nel 1588 grazie alle cure del figlio di Duret, Jean, egli segue i percorsi del celebre medico, analizzando dettagliatamente le fonti greche, e concentrandosi principalmente sulle sue teorie delle diagnosi. > Brunet, II, 916, e Graesse, III, 282 citano l'edizione 1588. 1850 gr.

Papier un peu bruni, sans jamais être génant, mouillure claire sur la page de titre et quelques feuillets suivants (voir photos). Ex dono de 1891 sur la page de garde, un autre en bas de la page de titre. Ex libris manuscrit d’un collège jésuite daté de 1659 et tampon d’une institution religieuse sur le titre. Rare exemplaire de l’édition de 1658 de ce manuel d’exorcisme que certains considèrent comme l’un des meilleurs et des plus complets. Seconde édition après celle de 1651 à Bergame, elle s’en distingue par plusieurs oraisons traduites en français dans la dernière partie (la majorité du texte reste en latin). Manuel d’exorcisme rédigé par le père franciscain Brognolo de Bergame. Le livre se veut pragmatique, présente des cas concrets de différents cas de possession, met en garde le prêtre contre les ruses du Diable, propose différentes prières et oraisons. Passages curieux et anecdotes, telle cette mise en garde p.176 sur la possession des jeunes filles que prélève et traduit Sandras dans les Fredaines du diable (1797): « Brognolo prouve invinciblement combien il est dangereux de poursuivre le Diable dans cette cachette [ndlr: les jeunes femmes].

Tout en perpétuant la tradition d'impression du Calendrier de la Cour, qui lui assurait d'importants revenus, il se spécialisa dans la typographie orientale. Il publia notamment en 1746 la Grammatica hebraica et chaldaica. Très bel exemplaire, entièrement réglé, en reliure doublée de l'époque (une note ancienne sur une feuillet de garde l'attribue à Boyet). De la bibliothèque de Mortimer L. Schiff avec son ex-libris. Willems, Les Elzevier, n° 1232. - Rahir, Les Elzevier, n° 1263.

During the interregnum between the death of Ferdinand III (1657) and the succession in 1658 by his son Leopold (who was king of Bohemia and Hongaria, but not Roman king) the author attempted to inform a French audiance by presenting a detailed history of and the principles by which the electoral process of the German emperor took place, explaining that the election of Holy Roman Emperor is the monopoly of seven princes of the Holy Empire, four of which are catholic and three of which are protestant. Each of these and their respective family are treated in this work outlining the history of each and with an explanation of their rights.Abraham de Wicquefort was born in Amsterdam in 1598, studied in Paris and became the official representative of the Margrave of Brandenbourg in Paris until he fell in disgrace with Mazarin who had him thrown into the Bastille in the year of publication of the present volume. - Leaf Xxiij with a tear in the outer blank margin.

Glazemaker, 1619/20-1682, was a professional translator and glazier (Glazemaker means glazier). If there were no texts to translate, Glazemaker worked as a glazier in the firm of his stepfather. He started his career translating popular literature, later he specialized in philosophy. He translated e.g. Descartes and Spinoza for the Dutch market. He mainly translated from Latin and French. His knowledge of Greek seems to have been insufficient to translate properly. So he must have used also Latin and French examples for his Greek authors. Choosing words to translate, he was a purist, and always chose pure Dutch t … [Click Below for Full Description]

CESARINI, Virginio
Angelo Bernabò, 1658. In -4°, due parti in un volume, antiporta figurata incisa, due tavole incise a piena pagina di cui una con ritratto dell'autore. Testo corredato da centinaia di vignette, testatine, iniziali e finalini istoriati calcografici; diverse illustrazioni incise (I) legato con "Poesie liriche toscane", inc. di Giovanni Battista Bonacina, Etienne Picart su disegni di Gregorio Tomasini; legatura in piena pergamena coeva semirigida, fioriture e lievi macchie di umidità e bruniture su alcune carte (in particolare pp. 89-92), segni di restauro su alcune carte. Molto raro, questo libro è uno degli esempi più impressionanti della produzione barocca italiana: sconosciuto ai compilatori della Bibliografia Romana: Boffito nomina il primo frontespizio inciso come registrato da Le Blanc, ma aggiunge che per loro un esemplare sarebbe stato introvabile. Prima edizione delle due opere, rilegate assieme e pubblicate postume, probabilmente è un omaggio a Cesarini stampato in tiratura limitata. L'autore è un cugino di Federico Cesi, studioso di legge e filosofia e appassionato di astronomia e matematica. Amico di Galileo e membro dell'Accademia dei Lincei, sollecitò Galileo a scrivere Il Sggiatore. I versi qui contenuti sono dedicati ciascuno a personaggi illustri dell'epoca (molti di loro membri dell'Accademia). Rossetti 1824 Very rare, this is one of the most impressive examples of Italian baroque book production: It was not known to the compilers of the Bibliografia Romana: Boffito mentions the first engraved title page as registered by Le Blanc, but it adds "We couldn't fin … [Click Below for Full Description]
