         Processo in causa dell'alloggiamento, et aggravii sostenuti dalla pertica civile nel Ducato.

      - (Milan. 1659). 1 volume in-4, plein vélin de l'époque, titre manuscrit au dos. [8] ff. ; 36 pp. ; [191] ff. Très rare recueil de pièces, réunies sous un titre commun et une table générale. Le procès en cours portait sur la répartition des charges de logement des troupes espagnoles sur les biens possédés par les "cittadini" de Milan. Cette forme d'imposition, particulièrement impopulaire partout, et spécialement dans le Milanais, était en question depuis l'époque de Charles Quint, la Cité de Milan prétendant à l'exemption de logement sur les biens possédés par ses membres.

         Erste und Eylfertige Antwort. auff M. Bernhard Schmitts Discurs 'De Reputatione Academica'. (u. vorgebunden:) Eylfertiges Sendschreiben an den Calenderschreiber zu Leipzig. Zus. mit 3 weiteren Schriften Schupps in 1 Band.

      - Altena, gedruckt bey Victor de Leeu, 1659. 12mo. 1 Bl., 70 S.; 48 S. Pergament d. Zeit (etwas fleckig u. wellig, Bezug stellenw. an den Kanten geplatzt). Der Marburger Theologe Johann Balthasar Schupp (1610-61) war einer der größten Kanzelredner seiner Zeit. Seit 1648 war er Pastor zu St. Jacobi in Hamburg, wo seine "oft scharf gesellschaftskritischen Predigten" sich "größten Zulaufs" erfreuten. Hier griff er, wie auch in seinen populären Schriften, ins volle Leben, gebrauchte "drastische Beispiele", schlug überhaupt einen "volkstümlichen, derben Ton an". In seiner Zeit erregte Schupp die Eifersucht seiner Amtskollegen, mit denen er jahrelange Polemiken, in die auch Schüler und auswärtige Theologen eingriffen, ausgefochten hat. So haben etwa Schupps Äußerungen über Universitäten und das akademische Studium in seiner Schrift "Freund in der Not", eine "Unterweisung eines Vaters an seinen Sohn beim Verlassen des Elternhauses", den Dresdner Magister Bernhard Schmitt veranlaßt, Schupp als einen Feind der Hochschulen zu brandmarken. In der "ersten und eylfertigen Antwort" und dann auch wieder in dem "eylfertigen Sendschreiben" setzt sich Schupp gegen Schmitt vehement zur Wehr. In dem "Sendschreiben" geht er gar einen Schritt weiter: Als das Gerücht auftauchte, zu Leipzig wolle einer seinen "Calender" angreifen, entschloß sich Schupp sofort zum Präventivangriff - und der angekündigte Gegner trat klugerweise gar nicht erst hervor. - 1: VD 17 23:251341G; Dünnhaupt 71.2. - Eine von 4 Druckvarianten. - 2: VD 17 23:251334Y; vgl.

Age-old saws include 'A chip of the old block', 'I will not buy a pig in a poke', 'One swallow makes not a summer', and 'Ynough is as good as a Feast'. The golden sentences are more substantial, with attributions to Bacon, Plato, Henry Wotton.ESTC lists eight copies: BL, Bodley; Staatsbibliothek Berlin; Harvard, Huntington, UCLA, Illinois, and Yale.Wing R 56.

Abile restauro ad alcuni dorsi e piccole mende residue; qualche trascurabile alone, bruniture e fioriture tipiche della carta lionese del tempo (più marcate nell'ultimo volume), peraltro esemplare nel complesso in buono stato di conservazione. Antoine Favre (1557-1624), celebre rappresentante della giurisprudenza "culta", fu presidente del Consiglio del Genovese nel 1596 e quindi presidente del Senato di Savoia nel 1610. Favre studiò il diritto romano classico, cercando di distinguerlo dalle successive aggiunte giustinianee e quindi di riscoprire la sostanza degli istituti giuridici partendo dalla critica testuale. Questo lavoro monumentale è dedicato ai primi ventotto libri del Digesto. Cfr. Iccu; Graesse, II, 540; non in Sapori. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         JUSHI KEI HAKKI SHO: INTRODUCTION FOR THE FOURTEEN CHANNELS TEACHINGS OF ACCUPUN

      - Kyoto 1659, Yoshinoya. Recent stiff brown stitched covers,10 vols. bound in 5 volumes, 17.7 x 26.5 cm., pagination:volume 1:35; 2:28; 3:41 ;4:38; 5:39; 6:46; 7:46; 8:38; 9:23; 10:35, a touch of minor old marginal worming, solid, complete. RARE This is an important and early work, on Chinese acupuncture, rewritten by a Japanese. * This work was originally written in Chinese, now it has that text, but with the addition of Japanese grammatical marks, Furigana and written in Kambun [Japanese version of a Chinese text]. * The work contains 37 fine full page illustrations showing period Chinese men, the various points of the "Fourteen Channels" for acupuncture, also the same points were used for acupressure and moxibustion. *** THE AUTHOR/EDITOR/"EXPLAINER" TANIMURA Gensen was the editor or "explainer" of the work. The FIRST EDITION was written 1659 by KATSU Ju [Jiu] with title JIU SHI KIYO HAKKI. TANIMURA slightly changed the title, but the work remains the same. Beginning on Mestler's p.473, he states: "KATSU Ju [alias = Hakunin which is a Japanese reading of a Chinese name and so is KATSU Ju]." was a Chinese physician of the Ming period [1368-1644] & prolific writer on Traditional Chinese medicine such as acupuncture and the "Fourteen Channels" of acupuncture, and the use of moxa and one of the early introducers of Chinese medicine to Japan. "The original [First Japanese Edition] of the publication was 1684, under title JUSHIKEI [or JUSHIKO] HAKKI.later also "explained" again by the celebrated and famous OKAMOTO Ippo under the title JUSHIKEI RAKI WAGO." Mestler p.474. *** THE ILLUSTRATIONS: The majority of the full-page illustrations show various men front, rear, side views, with a key to the various acupuncture points, each carefully labeled. There are a few other illustrations of internal organs, heart, liver, intestines &c. There about 20 excellent illustrations of acupuncture needles, lancelets which are the instruments of acupuncture. . vol.1: 2 + shows 18 acupuncture needles and lancelets vol.2: 0 vol.3: 16 illustrations vol.4: 4 " vol.5: 4 " vol.6: 4 " vol.7: 3 ' vol.8: 2 " vol.9: 2 " vol.10: 0 " *** CONTAINED IN CLOTH CHITSU OR FOLDING CASE: The whole complete set is placed inside of an recent [past 50-75 years] indigo-blue cloth Chitsu [folding case] with 2 bone clasps. *** CONDITION: The work was rebound in the last 50-75 years with newer covers. There is a touch of old worming mostly small holes in the margins, or leading edges, loss of text very minimal. Otherwise the work is printed on very clean, bright Washi hand-made Japanese paper. The characters are bold and bright with good registry. There are a few pages that have some black Sumi ink stain near the leading edges, text is still completely legible. The set of 10 volumes are bound in 5 uniform parts, stitched with a brown silk [?] thread. The set is solidly bound, all pages firm . *** REFERENCES: WHITNEY, Willis N.: NOTES ON THE HISTORY OF MEDICAL PROGRESS IN JAPAN, pp.419, #430, listed as JIU SHI KIYO HAKKI, that ? author is cited as KATSU JIU [died 1368], published 1659. * MESTLER, Gordon E. A GALAXY OF OLD JAPANESE MEDICAL BOOKS WITH MISCELLANEOUS NOTES ON EARLY MEDICINE IN JAPAN. Mestler has pointed out on pp.473-474 the original Japanese edition ".published in 1684 with title Jushikei [or Jushikyo Hakki]." was complete in one volume but was in two parts, authored by KATSU Ju [aka HAKUNIN] who was a Chinese physician who lived in the Ming dynasty. It clear that TANIMURA came across this text, and rewrote it from the original Chinese into Kambun for Japanese physicians. . We believe this work to be correctly attributed to KATSU Ju and later renamed by the Japanese, per the above. Mestler also illustrates an example on p.475, as plate figure B. This shows the measurements from "point to point" in the Fourteen Channels. Other entries for KATSU Ju on pp.303, 189 footnote 21. . Therefore, TANIMURA Gensen wrote a summary of the Ju-shi-Kyo Hakki-Sho, a summary of Ju

Later full mottled calf binding, spine with gilt raised bands, gilt tools and lettering, speckled edges; pp [xiv] + 145 + [i] + [13, index]; faint dampstain affecting lower quarter of last few leaves, otherwise very clean, very good. First edition. Very rare; auction records show only that one copy has appeared twice on the market in the last ten years. Though the author is unknown Simon has suggested that the book was written by the dedicatee Pierre de Lune, the 'escuyer de cuisine' of the Duc de Rohan. This is an early and very influential guide to the correct arrangement and service of banquets and formal dinners, including recipes for numerous elaborate sweets, many of which were approporiated by subsequent authors. The book also deals with the delicate art of folding napkins into fantastic shapes. This book is an artefact of the reign of Louis XIV, the Sun King, when dining became an art to be celebrated alongside the other cultural accomplishments of the period. It was one of four books, alongside de Lavarenne's Cuisinier Francois (1751), Kobert's L'Art de Bien Traiter (1674) and Pierre David's Le Cuisinier' (1676), that formed the foundation of French culinary art.

Bunden framför med eget titelblad: OLJEQVIST, Johan. Historia Caroli Gustavi potentissimi svecorum gothorum vandalorum &c. regis. Ad venerandum dn. parentem episcopum Strengnensem, Oxoniâ Anglorum transmissa, a Johanne Ollieqwist. Nunc verò typis excusa anno 1661.

Ur Ericsbergs bibliotek, med Carl Jedvard Bondes exlibris. Collijn sp. 592. Samlingsutgåva av Strängnäsbiskopen Johannes Matthiæs teologiska småskrifter som även innehåller sonen Johan Oljeqvists lilla historik över Karl X Gustav, med eget titelblad. Den sistnämnda utkom även separat samma år. Johan (Johannes) Matthiae (1593-1670) blev biskop i Strängnäs 1643 men är annars mest känd som drottning Kristinas lärare. Som teolog var han omstridd i det ortodoxa Sverige, med ekumeniska åsikter påverkad av Comenius, med följd att han 1664 fick avgå som biskop. Denna samling innehåller bl.a. hans pedagogiska studieordning ?Libellus puerilis? (1626), hans redogörelse för Kristinas undervisning ?Institutio religionis christianae ?(1642) och hans ?Regula credendi et vivendi? (1656), där han försvarar sig mot anklagelsen att vara orsak till Kristinas avfall, liksom hans utgåva av de böhmiska brödemas etiskt-religiösa ekumeniska kyrkoordning, ?Idea boni ordinis? (1644). Hans barn adlades Oljeqvist 1645 för hans förtjänsters skull. Om sonen Johan vet vi inte mycket. Han studerade i Uppsala 1653 och verkade som canonicus i Hamburg 1658 och levde åtminstone fortfarande 1667.

         Otto Keyens kurtzer Entwurff von Neu-Niederland und Guajana einander entgegen gesetzt, umb ... zu weisen welche von beyden am füglichsten zu bewohnen, am behendesten an zu bauen und den besten Nutzen geben mögen.Leipzig, Ritsch, 1672. 4to. Modern green morocco.

      Asher 12; JFB K-37; Muller, Americana 1083; Sabin 37675. First German edition, translated by Thomas Ritsch, of a comparison of what had been two Dutch colonial regions: the New Netherlands (now the eastern United States from Delaware to Rhode Island) and the Dutch parts of the Guianas (now Guyana and Surinam). "The author acknowledges that New Netherland is much preferable to the Netherlands; that one can more easily obtain large and independent possessions" but having "an interest in the colony of Guyana, to which he was attached as an officer, he attempts to show how much Guyana is superior to New Netherland," by setting forth the advantages of the climate, the soil, and general conditions of the warmer country.When Keye first published his work in Dutch in 1659, both regions were under Dutch colonial control, but in 1664 the British took New Amsterdam and renamed it New York, gaining control over what had been The New Netherlands. The 1667 Treatry of Breda formally accepted the existing situation: Dutch control of most of the Guianas and English control of the New Netherlands. Although not explicitly acknowledged, the present German translation may have been published to convince prospective German emigrants to choose the Dutch Guianas over the British colonies in North America. In good condition.

In 1656 he became a serjeant-at-law and was nominated with three others to prepare the charters granted to town corporations. His subsequent study of corporate law is embodied in the present work, covering not only civic and municipal corporations, but also trades (i.e. companies of tradesmen), colleges and universities, hospitals and other similar bodies.

        Otto Keyens kurtzer Entwurff von Neu-Niederland und Guajana einander entgegen gesetzt, umb ... zu weisen welche von beyden am füglichsten zu bewohnen, am behendesten an zu bauen und den besten Nutzen geben mögen.Leipzig, Ritsch, 1672. 4to. Modern green morocco.

      Asher 12; JFB K-37; Muller, Americana 1083; Sabin 37675. First German edition, translated by Thomas Ritsch, of a comparison of what had been two Dutch colonial regions: the New Netherlands (now the eastern United States from Delaware to Rhode Island) and the Dutch parts of the Guianas (now Guyana and Surinam). "The author acknowledges that New Netherland is much preferable to the Netherlands; that one can more easily obtain large and independent possessions" but having "an interest in the colony of Guyana, to which he was attached as an officer, he attempts to show how much Guyana is superior to New Netherland," by setting forth the advantages of the climate, the soil, and general conditions of the warmer country.When Keye first published his work in Dutch in 1659, both regions were under Dutch colonial control, but in 1664 the British took New Amsterdam and renamed it New York, gaining control over what had been The New Netherlands. The 1667 Treatry of Breda formally accepted the existing situation: Dutch control of most of the Guianas and English control of the New Netherlands. Although not explicitly acknowledged, the present German translation may have been published to convince prospective German emigrants to choose the Dutch Guianas over the British colonies in North America. In good condition.
