        Secundi Epistolae et Panegyricus

      Amsterdam: Elzeviriana (Elsevier), 1659. "Editio Nova" (New Edition), annotated/edited by Marcus Zuerius van Boxhorn (Latinized to Boxhornius on the title page), who had died 6 years earlier. Boxhorn was an important linguist before it was a separate science; he was the first to propose the existence of Proto-Indoeuropean, which he called Scythian. This is a 16mo volume with rather small type, bound in full vellum with a leather title piece. Good plus; the vellum is warped so that the front cover has begun to separate, and the front pastedown is torn. Has all-edge gilt but the top is quite dull. 404 pp. + index. Owner's names on the obverse of ffep and facing page; one of these has left a note, "collates perfect". (I didn't check.) The text is free of any writing or foxing.. Hard Cover.

Magnífico ejemplar encuadernado de época en pergamino. En la lomera tejuelo en rojo. =Entre todos los libros españoles que aprovechan la estructura discursiva emblemática, el de don Diego Saavedra Fajardo es el que mejor trasluce las preocupaciones del mundo hispánico de su momento. Fondo histórico y político concreto de la España de la primera mitad del siglo XVII. =En 1640, cuando aparece la primera edición de la Idea de un príncipe político cristiano representada en cien empresas, la disgregación del Imperio español es un hecho evidente en las sublevaciones de Cataluña y Portugal, culminación de una larga serie de conflictos que, desde la asunción del poder por el conde-duque de Olivares, se van intensificando en todos los frentes. El conocimiento directo y en primera persona de las complejidades de la negociación política, no siempre inmaculada, unido a una reflexión moral plegada a los valores de la Contarreforma, más el destilado de amplias lecturas, desembocan en una obra cuyo primer propósito será orientar e instruir al buen gobernante.

      Wien, 11. X. 1659. - ¾ S. auf Doppelblatt. Folio. Mit Adresse (Faltbrief). In lateinischer Sprache an Ranuccio II. Farnese (1630-1694), Herzog von Parma und Piacenza, der ihr von seiner bevorstehenden Hochzeit mit Margarete von Savoyen (1635-1663) geschrieben hatte. - Die dritte Gattin von Kaiser Ferdinand III. war Gründerin mehrerer Klöster, darunter auch des Ursulinenklosters in Wien, war Schirmherrin des in Wiener Neustadt gegründeten Karmeliterinnenklosters und stiftete 1662 den Orden der Sklavinnen der Tugend für Damen der Aristokratie. "Die Erweiterung der Wiener Hofburg um den leopoldinischen Trakt geht auf sie zurück. Als im Februar 1668 dort ein Feuer ausbrach und fast das gesamte Gebäude vernichtete, fand man später unter den Trümmern ein unversehrtes Reliquienkreuz. Aus diesem Anlaß gründete die Kaiserin den Sternkreuzorden" (Wikipedia). - Etwas angestaubt und gebräunt und mit einigen kleinen Randläsuren.

        THE HISTORY OF THE CHURCH,

      - from our Lord's incarnation, to the twelfth year of the Emperor Mauricius Tiberius, or the Year of Christ 594. As it was written in Greek by Eusebius Pamphilus, Bishop of Casarea in Palestine; Socrates Scholasticus, native of Constantinope; and Evagrius Scholasticus, born at Epiphania in Syria Secunda. Made English from that edition of these historians, which Valesius published at Paris in the years 1659, 1668, and 1673. Also, the Life of Constantine in four books, written by Eusebius Pamphilus; with Constantine's Oration to the Convention of the Saints, and Eusebius's Speech in praise of Constantine spoken at his Tricennalia. Valesius's annotations on these authors are done into English, and set at their proper places in the margin; as likewise a translation of his account of their lives and writings. Pp. [ii]+20+[36](contents)+700+[22](indices), most text double column, 2 large folding maps [of Persia and the Roman Empire], the main title page printed in red & black, indices; f'cap. folio; contemporary blind tooled calf boards, lightly worn (heavier at corners), with early repairs to edges, and a few small surface chips, rebacked, with modern dark brown leather spine decorated in blind between raised bands, and gilt lettered red leather title label; new endpapers; the title page (which is chipped and torn at edges) neatly reinserted on a recent backing sheet, several small edge chips or splits with occasional neat paper repairs, a few tiny wormholes and a couple of small scorch marks, scattered light foxing, occasional creasing and soiling (including a few small ink blots and damps spots); printed by J. M. for Awnsham and John Churchill, London, 1708; 1709. Second edition. Lowndes p. 763. *Three early church histories in one volume, first published thus in 1683. Based on the esteemed translation of the French philologist and classical historian Henricus Valesius, or Henri Valois (1603-1676), Lowndes describes this as the best edition of 'the best English translation' (the first edition did not contain the maps, the chronological index of Popes and Emperors, or the 'observations' on the maps by E. Wells). Eusebius (c. AD262-340) was a protege of the Emperor Constantine, and in 314 became Bishop of Caesarea. Known as 'the father of ecclesiastical history', his History of the Christian Church, completed in 324 or early in 325 is his most notable work. The Greek historian Socrates of Constantinople, also known as Socrates Scholasticus, was born c. AD380. His church history continued the work of Eusebius, but gave more emphasis to the the role of the Emperor in church affairs, and also included some secular history. Evagrius Scholasticus (c. AD536 -594 or later) studied and practised law in Syria, under the patronage of the Patriarch of Antioch. His ecclesiastical history extended the earlier work of Euseubius and Socrates Scholasticus, covering the period from the Second Council of Ephesus in 431 to the twelfth year of reign of the Emperor Maurice.

        Mosaicall philosophy: grounded upon the essentiall truth or eternal sapience

      London: Printed for Humphrey Moseley,, 1659. Written first in Latin, and afterwards thus rendred into English. Folio (272 × 185 mm), in 2 parts, part 2 with separate dated title page on leaf R4r. Twentieth-century half morocco, unlettered, marbled sides and endpapers. Lacks initial blank. Woodcut title vignettes, woodcuts in the text. Neat ownership inscription and faint inkstamp of the Scottish folklorist Rev. J. B. Mackenzie, Minister of Kenmore 1872-1911, at head and blank fore-margin of title. Trimmed a little close at head, very occasionally shaving the headline, minor dampstaining at extreme lower edge of first few leaves, a very good copy. First English edition of Fludd's last work, Philosophia Moysaica, the Latin version published posthumously at Gouda in 1638, the English translation said to have been Fludd's own work, an "explicit, detailed and highly organized Neoplatonist-Cabalist-alchemical interpretation of the universe" (Huffman, William, Robert Fludd and the end of the Renaissance, London: Routledge, 1988, 105). "Fludd was a devoutly Christian Neoplatonist, or, as he would call himself, a Mosaical Philosopher, since he begins with what he believes to be infallible principles delivered from God directly to Moses and his followers. Since he made some unique contributions to his grand synthesis of knowledge, over and above what was formulated originally by the Renaissance Florentine Neoplatonists, he felt justified in calling his philosophy 'Fluddean' as well as Mosaical" (Huffman, 104). The work includes Fludd's defence of his position on the weapon-salve, the Paracelsian doctrine that a wound could be cured by anointing the weapon which caused it with a mixture of the patient's blood and various other morbid materials. "He quotes examples of the efficacy of the cure, including one performed by himself on one of his brother-in-law's servants, and argues that the cure is neither superstitious nor magical, but natural. He argues for the unity of the spiritual and physical worlds, for which he was able to cite much evidence in common experience (quoting liberally from Gilbert's recent work on the magnet), and does so in a traditional (syllogistic) way; as a result, the tract reads as sober, reasonable, and often witty" (ODNB).

        PATENTE. PRIVATELY BOUND COLLECTION OF 139 17TH-18TH CENTURY PATENTS, OR ROYAL ORDERS AND DECREES OF HOLY ROMAN EMPIRE (GERMAN EMPERORS AND EMPRESSES)

      Good. 1659-1798. Hardcover. Very rare collection of 139 original 17th to 18th century royal orders (patents). The overwhelming majority are 18th century, and a significant number are orders by Maria Theresia, each in Gothic print and carrying the German Seal "L. S." There are also patents of Leopold I, Sixth Earl of God (presumably William Stanley) , and other nobility of the Holy Roman Empire. Of the 139 documents, 34 are bound as folding plates that are suitable for framing. The remaining 105 patents range from 2 pages to several pages in length, one of which carries a red wax nobility seal. All documents are in German language. The vast majority carry a handwritten notation in antiquated 17th century ink giving the date the orders were issued or delivered, typically on the last page or back side of the patent. There may be other information in the handwritten notes and signatures, but because it is in German and handwriting is often difficult to make out, cannot be certain what the notes say or names signed. Note: the signatures are not at the end of the documents, but rather are either at the top of the first page or the reverse side, often upside down. However, they appear to be of possible significance as if perhaps they were by officials in charge of recording the delivery or date of issuance of the documents. Many of these patents contain woodcut headers and/or footers including what may be a few Coats of Arms. The documents appear to be arranged in random order (not chronological). The first two documents have worming in the lower right margin extending into the text. All documents are toned to varying degrees with some variations in the type of paper, though all are clearly authentic 17th-18th century. Watermarks are visible on some pages. Most of the LS seals are in the form of a seal (circular border) with variations in the borders ranging from a simple solid border to decorative woodcut borders. Only a handful (6 or so) of the documents do not appear to be patents but rather charts and therefore do not carry a seal. Bound in early 19th century, covers and spine strip have severe wear and chipping. There is no title page, but the spine label reads "Patente." . Binding is starting but at present it is holding well. .

        Amerique Septentrionale

      N. Sanson & P. Mariette, Paris 1659 - The third state of this highly important map of North America by the founder of the French School of cartography. This very rare map is the most geographically progressive portrayal of the continent made during its generation, and was not superseded until Vincenzo Maria Coronelli's map of 1688. Importantly, it is the first map to depict the Great Lakes in a recognizable form, and the first to name Lake Ontario and Lake Superior. In his rendering of the region, Sanson benefited from having received a copy of The Jesuit Relations , published in Paris in 1649, a detailed account by French missionaries who had traveled in the region. Most notably, this included Father Paul Ragueneau's account of his visit to Niagara Falls and Jean Nicollet's discovery of Lake Michigan, "Lac des Puans," in 1634. Down the St. Lawrence River from the lakes, Montréal is named, the settlement having been founded by the Sieur de Maisonneuve in 1642. Elsewhere, to the north, a mysterious strait weaves over "New South Wales" on Hudson's Bay, terminating in the interior of the continent, a blank space labeled as "Mer Glaciale". This alludes to the existence of a much hoped-for Northwest Passage. On the eastern seaboard, the map notes "N[ouvelle] Amsterdam" in the place of present day New York, and is the first printed map to label "N[ouvelle] Suede," referring to the Swedish colony centered on Fort Christina, founded on the site of present-day Wilmington, Delaware in 1638. To the far southwest, Sanson based his depiction on the Father Alonso Benavides Memorial , a travel account of New Mexico, published in Madrid in 1630. It is the first printed map to label "S[anta] Fe" (which is incorrectly shown to be on the banks of the Rio Grande) and the domains of various native tribes such as the "Apache," "Navajo" and the "Taosij" (Taos). To the west, California is shown as a large island, and features some of the same nomenclature as found on Johannes de Laet's map of 1630. To the north, an entirely unknown realm is named "Conibas," a mythical land that lay between North America and Asia. A striking aspect of the map is the sinusoidal projection employed by Sanson, that essentially places the globe on an elliptical graticule, creating a very pleasing aesthetic. The composition is finished by an extremely elegant Baroque title cartouche, featuring swags of fruit and vegetation. Nicholas Sanson was born in the town of Abbeville in Picardy. Something of a child prodigy, by the age of eighteen, he could already be found in Paris drafting his own maps. There he quickly rose to become Royal Geographer to Louis XIII in 1630. He maintained the position upon the ascension of the "Sun King" Louis XIV in 1643, and later served as tutor to the ambitious young monarch. In 1644, he formed a lucrative partnership with Paris publisher Pierre Mariette with the objective of producing a great atlas that could rival those of the Amsterdam houses, such as Blaeu and Jansson. The present map was devised as one of the most important maps in the atlas. The first state of the map was printed in 1650, a second state appeared a year later and the third state in 1659. The atlas itself, entitled Les Cartes Générales de toutes les parties du Monde was not finally assembled until 1658. It was however, a landmark moment in the history of French cartography, being the first folio atlas produced in that country. The extremely high quality of Sanson's work motivated other French mapmakers to improve the standard of their production. Sanson also greatly influenced Louis XIV's chief minister, Jean-Baptisite Colbert to heavily fund cartographic projects. This gave rise to a great 'French School' of cartography that was to eventually wrest dominance of the mapmaking market from the Dutch by the 1680s. After Sanson's death in 1667, his work was continued by his sons, Guillaume (d.1703) and Adrian (d.1708). The first state of this map is extremely rare, with Philip Burden citing only two copies in privat

        SINICAE HISTORIAE DECAS PRIMA, Res à gentis origine ad Christum natum in extrema Asia, sive Magno Sinarum Imperio gestas complexa.

      1659 - Amsteldami [Amsterdam], Joannem Blaeu, 1659. In-12 (102 X 158) veau brun granite, dos cinq nerfs ornés, caissons dorés, pièce de titre maroquin grenat, coupes ornées, tranches mouchetées rouge (reliure de l'époque) ; 413 pages (dont titre), (1) page et (8) ff. d'index. Coiffe supérieure restaurée, deux déchirures sans manque à deux feuillets habilement recollées. SECONDE ÉDITION de l'UNE DES MEILLEURES HISTOIRES ANCIENNES DE LA CHINE. Elle est aussi RARE que la première parue l'année précédente au format in-quarto à Munich chez Lucas Straub. Elle contient également quelques bois gravés dans le texte. Né à Trente en 1614, MARTINI fut admis à l?âge de dix-sept ans dans la Compagnie de Jésus. Après avoir fait sa philosophie au collège romain, où il suivit les cours d?Athanasius Kircher, il se rendit à Lisbonne pour y poursuivre ses études, puis s?embarqua pour l?Asie en 1638. Arrivé en Chine en 1643, il s?installa à Hang-Tcheou et devint supérieur de la mission. Pendant son séjour, Martini se consacra à l?étude de la langue et de la civilisation chinoise, ainsi qu?à l?astronomie. Après la conquête mandchoue, il fut traité avec beaucoup d?égards par l?empereur Ming, et put visiter un grand nombre de provinces chinoises. Rappelé à Rome pour y être nommé procureur, il s?embarqua en 1650: la traversée fut mouvementée, et le Père Martini aborda successivement Macassar, l?Irlande, la Norvège, l?Allemagne et la Belgique, très bien accueilli par les savants de ces pays à qui il apportait des renseignements précieux sur la nouvelle dynastie chinoise. Lors de son séjour à Amsterdam, il mit au point son célèbre Novus Atlas Sinensis, rédigé durant la longue traversée. Son retour en Chine en 1657 fut marqué par une traversée désastreuse durant laquelle le navire fit pris par des pirates, mais Martini put finalement atteindre sa mission de Hang-Tcheou en 1658, où il mourut le 6 juin 1661. UN OUVRAGE IMPORTANT DANS L'HISTOIRE DES ÉTUDES SINOLOGIQUES : divisée en deux parties, cette «première décade», seule parue, traite de l?histoire de la Chine jusqu?à l?an 6 avant notre ère. Martini avait l?intention de la compléter, mais peu après son retour en Chine en 1658 il tomba malade et mourut trois ans plus tard. La plupart des informations contenues dans son ouvrage proviennent de sources chinoises et le livre du Père Martini demeura pour plus d?un siècle la seule histoire sérieuse de la Chine ancienne écrite par un européen. «Dans la première partie de ses Fastes, le Père Duhalde n?a donné autre chose qu?une traduction de l?ouvrage du Père Martini; et c?est encore là qu?ont puisé les auteurs de l?Histoire Universelle. Jusqu?au Père de Mailla, on n?avait rien de mieux, ni même d?aussi bon que Martini.» (Sommervogel). (CORDIER, BS, 580 - « Très bonne histoire des Missions des Jésuites en Chine », CHADENAT, 369 - SOMMERVOGEL, V-650, 10). NICE COPY. PICTURES AND MORE DETAILS ON REQUEST.

        The Scale (Or Ladder) of Perfection, Written By Walter Hilton a Carthusian, Famous in the Reigne of Henry the 6th. Printed First in the Yeare 1494. And Dedicated to the Devout Lady Margaret, Mother to Henry the 7th

      Printed by T.R.. LEATHER BOUND. B00LUSFUZG 1659 first edition thus, 'Printed by T.R.' (London), 4 x 6 inches tall full leather bound, blind stamped floral design to covers, four raised bands and gilt ruling to spine, decorative endpapers, [16], 312 pp. Minor rubbing to covers. Boards very slightly bowed. Apart from minor staining to the margins of the last few leaves, a very good copy - clean, bright and unmarked - of a rare early English printing of this spiritual classic. The English Short Title Catalog records copies at only six institutions in North America - the Folger Shakespeare, Yale, Georgetown, the Newberry, University of Texas and UCLA. References: Wing (2nd ed.), H3882; Thomason, E.1791[1]; ESTC No. R209684. ~Z~ Walter Hilton (circa 1340/45-1396) was an English Augustinian mystic. He appears to have received a legal education, possibly at the University of Cambridge, but in the early 1380s he turned away from the world and became a solitary. Some time later, he joined a religious comunity; 1386 is often suggested as the date of his entry as an Augustinian Canon Regular into Thurgarton Priory, in Nottinghamshire. He wrote most of his best known works thereafter, including this, The Scale of Perfection, which was probably completed in the late 1380s. The first book of The Scale is addressed to a woman recently enclosed as an anchoress, providing her with appropriate spiritual exercises. The second book, which opens by addressing itself to Hilton's former reader, who, he says, has further questions, seems from its style and content rather to be addressed to a larger, perhaps more sophisticated, audience. The first book of the Scale was apparently written some time before the second and was circulated independently. Hilton's spiritual writings were very influential during the fifteenth century in England. In Carmelite friar Thomas Fishlake's translation, the Scale became the first work written in English to circulate on the European continent. Together with 'The Mixed Life,' it was printed by Wynkyn de Worde in Westminster in 1494, at the request of Lady Margaret Beaufort, Countess of Richmond and Derby, the mother of King Henry VII, and five more times before the English Reformation of the 1530s. With the revival of the Roman Catholic Church in England in the nineteenth century, a modernised version of this, the 1659 edition, was issued by Fr. J.B. Dalgairns in 1870, and in 1923 by Evelyn Underhill. Hilton is honored in the Church of England on March 24, and in the Episcopal Church (USA) together with Richard Rolle and Margery Kempe on September 28. . Very Good. 1659.

In this book on page 73, Rahn first introduced the symbol "÷" in print "as a sign of division; (2) the Archimedean spiral for involution; (3) the double epsilon for evolution; (4) the use of capital letters B, D, E, for given numbers, and small letters a, b, for unknown numbers; (5) the * for multiplication; (6) the first use of ∴ for 'therefore'; (7) the three-column arrangement of which the left column contains the directions, the middle the numbers of the lines, the right the results of the operations."-Cajori, A History of Mathematical Notations, I, pp. 211-12 & see illus. on p. 213 (& see sections 205, 208, 232, 237, 266, 304, 307, 328, 333, 341, 385, & 386 for Rahn's other contributions, all of which appear in the present book). We know that Leibniz looked upon Rahn's book favorably, describing it as "an elegant algebra." While Rahn's use of the modern division sign was not immediately adopted in Europe, in England it met a very favorable reception, with John Wallis and other English writers employing it. Rahn (1622-76), came from a prominent Zurich family and had a major role in the administration of his native city. About 1654, Rahn came to know John Pell (1611-85), then a representative of the Commonwealth at Zurich, and engaged the English mathematician as a tutor in 1657, meeting every Friday night. While some of the advances in notation in this book might have derived from Pell, "without further evidence, it is best to assume that there was joint responsibility for these innovations and that Pell's contemporary reputation as a mathematician, and particularly as an algebraist, was not unearned."-D.S.B., X, p. 495.

        Rélation Véritable de ce qui s'est Passé au Royaume de Sophie , depuis les Troubles excitez par la Rhetorique et l'Eloquence. Avec un Discours sur la Nouvelle Allegorique

      Paris: Charles de Sercy, 1659. Duodecimo, slightly browned but a very good copy in contemporary speckled calf, spine gilt between raised bands. Very scarce: first edition of this description and history of an imagined kingdom, an allegorical satire on French court and society. Sorel (1597-1674) novelist and historian, wrote a vast array of works, many issued anonymously or pseudonymously: he 'professa toute sa vie pour les lettres une ardeur indefatigable' (NBG). This tremendous output has made a complete bibliography of his works a difficult undertaking, but even a brief overview shows his astonishing diversity: satires, histories, fables, etc. The Rélation Véritable is a satire on French mores, followed by Sorel's Discours sur la Nouvelle Allégorique, an approving comparison of Sorel's invented kingdom of Sophie and Antoine Furetière's earlier Nouvelle Allégorique, ou Histoire des derniers troubles arrivez au royaume de l'eloquence.

        Les Estats, Empires, Royaumes et Principautez du Monde.

      1659 - Lyons: Claude de la Riviere, 1659. Folio, full C18th vellum; pp. (viii)+930+(32)(index); four folding maps of the continents. Text spotted and toned, repairs to maps. Pierre d'Avity (1673-1735) first published his 'Countries, Empires, Kingdoms and Principalities of the World' in 1614, but it was continually enlarged, even after his death. This posthumous edition was the first to contain these four maps of the continents. Although they have the name of Jodocus Hondius, three are new states of the maps by Nicholas Picart, 1644, which in turn were copied from Jan Jansson's maps of 1623 (but state 3, with bottom border panels removed), based on his brother-in-law's originals. The fourth, America, has been identified by Burden as a new plate imitating the Picart but with typographic differences, for example 'Cartage' rather than 'Cartagena' on the townplan. BURDEN: North America 333, 'very rare panelled map'; BETZ: 73.2.

        Rélation Véritable de ce qui s'est Passé au Royaume de Sophie , depuis les Troubles excitez par la Rhetorique et l'Eloquence. Avec un Discours sur la Nouvelle Allegorique

      Charles de Sercy, Paris 1659 - Duodecimo, slightly browned but a very good copy in contemporary speckled calf, spine gilt between raised bands. Very scarce: first edition of this description and history of an imagined kingdom, an allegorical satire on French court and society. Sorel (1597-1674) novelist and historian, wrote a vast array of works, many issued anonymously or pseudonymously: he 'professa toute sa vie pour les lettres une ardeur indefatigable' (NBG). This tremendous output has made a complete bibliography of his works a difficult undertaking, but even a brief overview shows his astonishing diversity: satires, histories, fables, etc. The Rélation Véritable is a satire on French mores, followed by Sorel's Discours sur la Nouvelle Allégorique, an approving comparison of Sorel's invented kingdom of Sophie and Antoine Furetière's earlier Nouvelle Allégorique, ou Histoire des derniers troubles arrivez au royaume de l'eloquence.

        Pascaerte vande Caribische Eylanden, vande Barbados tot aende Bocht van Mexico

      Amsterdam: Hendrick Doncker, 1659. Amsterdam: Hendrick Doncker, 1659. Single sheet, float-mounted and framed (framed size: 29 2/8 x 33 inches). A fine engraved map of the Caribbean, the title within an elaborate historiated cartouche lower left, rhumb lines, the ocean decorated with a galleon and a small compass rose, all with beautiful original hand-colour in outline (one or two pale stains). HENDRIK DONCKER'S EXCEPTIONALLY RARE MAP OF THE CARIBBEAN First state, from Doncker's celegrated "De Zee-Atlas Ofte Water-Waereld", and derived from Hessel Gerritsz's map of circa 1631 which is one of the first sea charts depicting North America to use Gerard Mercator's projection. Virtually unaltered it shows Staten Landt near Tierra del Fuego bearing a completed coastline following Hendrick Brouwer's voyage of 1642 to 1643. However, the map also illustrates Doncker's independent thought towards its content. Two distinct features are the pronounced easterly sweep of the southeast coast, and an unusually prominent 'R. de S.Petro' feeding an enlarged Apalachee Bay. The map was published in three different states. In state 2 of the map, published in 1672, the cartouche lacks the Native American figure, while the 1676 plate is larger in size. A bookseller in Amsterdam from the age of 22, Doncker ran an extremely successful business for more than fifty years: a publisher of the "most popular sets of maritime works published in Amersterdam during the Golden Age" (Koeman), including pilot guides, sea atlases, and textbooks on the art of navigation. Doncker was the first cartographer to publish a sea atlas after Arnold Colom's publications in 1654 and 1658. Although his Sea-Atlas is similar to the publications of Van Loon, Goos, and Lootsman, Doncker's charts were original, frequently corrected and improved and so were the most up-to-date in the second half of the 17th-century..
