        Brief mit eigenh. U.

      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.

        De disciplina ecclesiastica veterum, praesertim Germanorum Libri duo, Quorum alter CLERICOS, alter LAICOS informat...Nunc primum vetusto membranaceo MS Bibliothecae Iuliae typis excusi... (hg. von Joachim Hildebrand).

      . Helmstedt, H. Müller 1659. 4°. (201) Bll. (statt 193: die Lagen Ii und Kk doppelt eingebunden). Gegenüber den Kollationsangaben im VD 17 (189 Bll.) ist in unserem Exemplar eine Lage 1Hh 4 enthalten, mit Auszügen aus Bestimmungen des Konzils von Toledo die Juden betreffend. In einem eigenen Vorwort an den Leser erläutert der Herausgeber, dass dieser Teil in zwei Manuskripten, die ihm vorlägen (dem Helmstädter und dem Mainzer), nicht vorhanden seien und erst in einem dritten, dem Wiener, gefunden worden wären. (Angeb.): HILDEBRAND, Joachim: De natalitiis veterum sacris et profanis libellus i natalem octogesimum tertiam Principis supra laudem positi Augusti Ducis Brunsv. et Luneb. ...Helmstedt, H.

Helmstedt, H. Müller 1652. Pergament d. 18. Jahrhunderts (fleckig, nachgedunkelt, RD mit kleineren Wasserflecken) mit blindgepressten Stehkantenfileten (vermutlich ist das hintere Gelenk - wohl zwecks Entnahme eines weiteren Beibandes - offen gewesen und sehr professionell wieder geschlossen worden; dadurch, dass der Rücken nicht verkürzt wurde, sind die Fileten aus der ursprünglichen symmetrischen Anordnung verrutscht und an der Vorderkante nicht mehr sichtbar) und handgeschr. Rückentitel und Bibliotheksnummer; ohne die Bindebänder. I: Erste Ausgabe; in dieser Vollständigkeit sehr selten. II: Erste Ausgabe, einer von 4 im VD17 verzeichneten Paralleldrucken, dort aber mit falscher Kollationsangabe. III: Erste Ausgabe, einer von 3 im VD17 verzeichneten Paralleldrucken. IV: Erste Ausgabe, einer von 3 im VD17 verzeichneten Paralleldrucken. V: Erste Ausgabe, einer von 5 im VD17 verzeichneten Paralleldrucken. I: Kirchenrechtssammlungen, d.h. damals v.a. Konzilsbeschlüsse und Exzerpte aus Papstbriefen, gibt es in der kath. Kirche seit Beginn des 6. Jahrhunderts, zunächst chronologisch, dann systematisch geordnet. Reginos Sendbuch - um 900 n. Chr. entstanden und dem Bischof Hatto von Mainz gewidmet - versteht sich als Begleitbuch für die Visitationsreisen des Bischofs. Ein erster Teil besteht aus Rechtssätzen über die Kleriker, vorangestellt ein Katalog von 96 Fragen, die den visitierten Priestern zu stellen waren; im zweiten Teil geht es um die Laien, hier ausgehend von 86 Fragen. Es werden "nicht nur der Zustand der Kirche und ihrer Einrichtungen und das Leben der an ihr tätigen Geistlichen untersucht, sondern auch die religiöse Praxis der Laien und ihre Delikte, vor allem das Ehe- und Geschlechtsleben, Totschlag und Diebstahl" (Hartmann S. 1). Dabei "ist neben dem alten kirchlichen Recht auch das fränkische Recht des 9. Jahrhunderts stark benutzt: Regino betont die besonderen Notwendigkeiten seiner Zeit, die es unmöglich machten, sich allein auf alte Rechtssätze zu stützen; er verficht daneben mit Nachdruck die Gültigkeit fränkischer Gewohnheiten; denn die Kirche sei eins im Glauben, aber nicht im Brauch" (Buchner in Wattenbach/Levison, Beiheft S. 76). II: Joachim Hildebrand (1623 - 1691), von Haus aus Altphilologe und Orientalist mit umfassenden Sprachkenntnissen, erhielt 1648 den Lehrstuhl für Theologie an der Universität Helmstedt; sein Hauptinteresse lag hier auf der Herausgabe und Aufbereitung alten theologischen Schrifttums. In diesem Zusammenhang steht auch die Publizierung des Sendehandbuchs Reginos. Die übrigen in diesem Band versammelten Schriften Hildebrands gehören zu seinen zahlreichen gelehrten kirchengeschichtlichen Abhandlungen, die erste zugleich als Geburtstagsgabe an den Herzog von Braunschweig und Lüneburg (Über weltliche und sakrale Feiertage, über frühchristliche Hochzeitsbräuche, über die Kunst in Würde zu sterben, über frühkirchliche Festtage, Kirchen sowie öffentliche Kulthandlungen). Beide Gelenke leicht angerissen, beide Spiegel und der vordere Vorsatz mit Wurmfraßspuren, vorderer Spiegel, Titel verso und letztes Bl. recto mit kleinen Bibliotheksstempel, vorderer Spiegel und Titel verso zusätzlich mit handschr. Standnummer; vorderer Vorsatz recto und verso mit handschr. Einträgen (recto von älterer Hand), Reginos Text bzw. den gesamten Sammelband betreffend. 1 Bl. mit restauriertem Papierschaden (Text nicht tangiert), 3 Bll. mit größerem Wasserrand, stellenweise fingerfleckig; ansonsten papierbedingt unterschiedlich gebräunt, verschiedene Lagen stark. I: VD 17, 1:010449B; Potthast S. 957; Wasserschleben S. XVIII. II: VD 17, 12:171679H (vgl. Fingerprint und Titel). III: VD 17, 23:250027U (vgl. Fingerprint). IV: VD 17, 3:008887R (vgl.

      Augsburg, Veronica Apergin, 1659.. . Erste Ausgabe dieses wichtigen Liederbuches, das neben denen Khuens, Schefflers u. a. zu den bedeutendsten Erzeugnissen des katholischen, überhaupt des süddeutschen Kirchenliedes seiner Zeit gehört. Das Buch fand auch in protestantischen Kreisen Gefallen, obwohl dieser katholische Versuch einer Psalmenübersetzung lange nach der beliebten evangelischen Version unternommen wurde. Der lateinische Text wird auf der linken Seite dem deutschen gegenübergestellt, "damit beyder Sprachen kündige Leser, sie gegen einander halten, und wo die ungeschickte Reim-art nicht außlangen: den abgang durch sich selbsten verbessern könde." "Dieses wichtige, sogar Goedeke entgangene Werk, von dem sich laut Schnapper kein Exemplar in den britischen Bibliotheken befindet, ist sowohl vom literarischen wie musikalischen Standpunkt offenbar noch nicht genügend gewürdigt worden ... Bemerkenswert ist dabei auch, daß der Verfasser wohl einiges von der protestantischen Choraldichtung des 16. Jahrh. gekannt haben muß, da sich gelegentlich Anklänge an deren Texte finden ... Mit den Dichtern Jakob Balde und J. Khuen war der Verfasser befreundet ... Die im Anhang mitgeteilten 46 Melodien für Diskant und Generalbaß zeichnen sich durch eine gewisse Schlichtheit aus, sie bewegen sich meist in halben oder Viertelnoten und Achtel- oder gar Sechzehntelläufe finden sich nur höchst selten. Im Nachwort geht Curtz kurz auf die Melodien zu den verschiedenen Versmaßen ein ... und es hat den Anschein, als ob er auch der Komponist dieser Sangweisen sei" (Kistner/Seebaß, NF 223). Albert Graf von Curtz (München 1600-1671) war Jesuit, Schriftsteller und Astronom. Der dem Geschlecht der Grafen Curtz von Senfftenau entstammende C. trat 1616 in den Jesuitenorden ein, lehrte Mathematik und Moralphilosophie in Dillingen und wirkte als Domprediger an St. Stephan in Wien. 1646 und 1663 war er Rektor der Kollegien in Neuburg/Donau, Eichstätt und Luzern und kehrte anschließend wieder in seine Heimatstadt zurück. Vom Pfalzgrafen Wolfgang Wilhelm, dem er in religiösen und politischen Fragen beratend zur Seite stand, wurde er mit diplomatischen Aufgaben betraut. C. verfaßte neben religiösen und historischen Schriften kriegswissenschaftliche Abhandlungen, darunter seine gegen Wallenstein gerichtete Coniuratio Albert Friedlandi ducis (1651). 1659 erschien seine Psalmenübersetzung 'Harpffen Davids Mit Teutschen Saiten bespannet ...', die bewußt im Gegensatz zur Opitzschen Sprachreform steht. Bevorzugtes Gebiet seiner literarischen Tätigkeit war die Beschäftigung mit der Astronomie. C., der 1666 eine Edition der Werke Tycho Brahes besorgte, verfaßte auch selbst astronomische Arbeiten, darunter seine Beobachtungen der Cometen von 1645 (nach DBE). Im Vorwort setzt sich Curtz kritisch mit Opitz und der Fruchtbringenden Gesellschaft auseinander. - Drucktitel mit zeitgenöss. handschriftl. Besitzeintrag.

      1659 - "Dictionarium Etymologicum Latinum Or, a Dictionary Declaring the Etomologies, the Original Derivation of All Words Used in Any Latine Authors, with the Reason of Their Derivations and Appellations.Lastly Rider's Dictionarie" by Francis Holyoke. Printed in Latin in its entirety. The stated seventh edition of a very important early dictionary, which had a long and rather complex printing history in the first half of the 17th century. Contemporaneous imprinted for Andrew Crooke, London, 1659. Very thick octavo [6" x 9"] with roughly 1410 unpaginated pages. Beautifully rebound in contemporary buckram with white and black paper label on the spine and new end pages. The book is in very good antiquarian condition. The last page of text is slightly worn and toned darkened. A light damp mark is just barely visible in the gutter margin. In the upper gutter area of the entire "O" signature there is a tear in the margin. There is a tear with a very small loss on "Ll5", and on "Yy8". Two leaves have stains: a rather large one of 2 1/2" x 1 1/2" on "eeee 1" and a small one on "mmmm 7". The textblock is surprisingly bright for its age, with lightly toned margins.

Large 8vo, orig. wrappers (wrappers rubbed & worming; some worming to text & illus., carefully repaired), orig. block-printed title label on upper cover, modern stitching.

It is a collection of acupuncture and moxibustion dissertations. It concerns moxibustion treatment for adults and children with 36 pictures of adults and nine children, illustrating the locations of acupuncture points with explanations of efficacies. This work is a commentary and explanation of the Ling-shu, which "formed [along with the Su Wen] the theoretical basis of classical Chinese medicine...the Ling-shu...discusses mainly therapy -- mostly centered on medicinal prescriptions, but also including physical therapies such as bonesetting and breathing exercises, and stimulation treatments such as acupuncture, moxibustion and massage."-Sugimoto & Swain, Science & Culture in Traditional Japan, p. 85.

      No place but London, London 1659 - 4to. 6 x 8 inches. Title page + 99 pp. Bound in quarter calf over mottled boards, spine with contrasting maroon title label, gilt. Extremities worn and some browning, foxing and staining; otherwise a very good copy. Title page with decorated woodcut border. Decorative border beneath text on final page. Some text in black letter. This is a vibrant first-hand record of the complex machinations of post-Civil War government in 17th century England. The notorious Puritan Prynne (1600-1669) began pamphleteering in 1627, but in 1633 was jailed, fined œ5000 and had both ears cropped for publishing a book which labelled actresses as whores, at a time when the queen herself had appeared on stage. Whilst imprisoned, he continued his pamphleteering and in 1637 was again fined, sentenced to life imprisonment, deprived of the remainder of his ears, and his cheeks branded with the letters S.L. (for seditious libeler). He was released from prison by Parliament in 1640. Prynne himself entered Parliament in 1648, and was one of the members excluded by Pride's military Purge which led to the establishment of the so-called Rump Parliament, and Cromwell's Commonwealth. After the fall of Robert Cromwell, Prynne, having supported the Restoration of Charles II, was subsequently rewarded with the post of Keeper of the Records of the Tower of London.

Ratcliffe, for the author, and sold by George Thomason...and Edward Thomas..., 1664. [32], 1220pp, [28]. With initial blank and final errata leaf. Signatures Pp and Qq internally misbound. Uniform eighteenth-century calf, contrasting red morocco lettering-piece. Remains of Foljambe devices to base of spine. Rubbed with loss to spine, joints split but boards folding firm. Eighteenth-century bookplates of Foljambe of Osberton, twentieth century bookplates of D. G. Mackenzie. Prynne's Register highlights his realization of the inadequacies of most historical and legal writer's approaches to the English constitution. In common with the majority of mid-seventeenth-century writers and lawyers, he had previously considered the writings of Sir Edward Coke, and particularly the four volumes of his Institutes (1629-44), as constitutional gospel. The realization that Coke had relied upon commentaries, rather than the original source material contained within the rolls and records of Parliament, caused Prynne to devote the latter years of his life to antiquarianism, and reverse his early pamphleteer-opinions of the institutions of state. After vocally supporting the Restoration of Charles II to the English throne Prynne was, rather ironically given his earlier imprisonment there, appointed as keeper of the Tower records - a role that greatly assisted his editing of these four volumes of collected Parliamentary Writs from the reigns of English monarchs between John and Edward IV. Unsurprisingly difficult to obtain as a complete set, with publication dates of these four volumes, all first editions, spanning some 6 years. Wing P3956, P4071, P3902, P3961.

        A TOPOGRAPHIE OR SURVEY OF THE COUNTY OF KENT. WITH SOME CHRONOLOGICAL, HISTORICAL, AND OTHER MATTERS TOUCHING THE SAME, AND SEVERAL PARISHES THEREIN.

      Thomas Mabb, for Henry Atkinson, London, 1659 - 422 pp. with copper-engraved frontis of the author. Original full calf. Rebacked twice, with the spine from the first rebacking re-used, having raised bands, gilt decoration and contrasting title labels, gilt. A very good copy with good margins. The most important 17th century gazetteer of the county. This copy is inscribed on the free endpaper by an early owner 'John Guy 1680/81'. Another early hand has inscribed some remarks about the book and concludes with the opinion that 'Kilburn's Survey of Kent is all modern and superficial'. A further early hand has made some neat inscriptions on another free endpaper. Additionally, one or another of these owners has carefully been through the list of Errata at the rear of the book and corrected the text as necessary. Richard Kilburne (1605 - 1678), was an eminent solicitor in the Court of Chancery and a resident of Hawkhurst. This is a 'must' in any definitive Kent collection.

        GOLDEN REMAINS OF THE EVER MEMORABLE MR. IOHN HALES

      London: Printed for Tim[othy] Garthwait, 1659. FIRST EDITION. Hardcover. 200 x 152 mm (7 7/8 x 6"). 6 p.l. (including the frontispiece), 188, 80, 48 pp. Edited by Peter Gunning. FIRST EDITION. Modern unlettered blind-ruled calf, raised bands. Engraved frontispiece and engraved title page, both by Wenceslaus Hollar and dated 1659. Wing H-269. Spine uniformly sunned and with one very small spot, engraved leaves closely cropped (with the tiniest of loss), text trimmed close at top (a few headlines just touched), leaves a shade less than bright, isolated minor stains, a very small hole through the gutter of two leaves (no loss), otherwise an excellent copy, the binding unworn, and the text still quite fresh. The erudite John Hales (1584-1656) was Greek professor at Oxford and held other important academic positions; he is described succinctly in the preface written here by John Pearson as "a man of great sharpness, quicknesse and subtilty of wit as ever this; or, perhaps, any Nation bred." Andrew Marvel described Hales as "one of the clearest heads and best prepared breasts in Christendom." And in a long tribute found in "Memoirs of Eminent Etonians" by Edward Shepherd Creasy, Hales is described as "respected by all who knew him for his erudition and integrity, and beloved for his cheerfulness and amiability." The present volume includes three sections: the first containing nine sermons, full of impressively brandished metaphor; the second containing Hales' early-career letters (1618-19) to Dudley Carlton, British ambassador to The Hague (to whom Hales served as chaplain), reporting from the Synod of Dort; and the third containing the Dort Synod letters of Dr. Balcanqual, Hales' replacement at the council. Of special interest in the first section is a sermon against duels.

        De Infinitis Parabolis, de Infinitisque Solidis ex varijs rotationibus ipsarum, partiumque earundem genitis. Unà cum nonnullis ad praedictarum magnitudium, aliarumque centra granitatis attinentibus... [woodcut printer's device]

      Iannem La No?Venetiis,: Iannem La Noù,, 1659.. [xx], 408 pp. Small 4to (16 x 22,5 cm.). Modern half vellum over marbled boards, new end-papers. With 183 woodcut diagrams, and numerous wooodcut initial, head- and tail pieces. The rare first edition. In 1663 a second, slightly expanded, edition was published. "Angeli's studies in mathematics include a further development of the methods of individibles - methods introduced by Cavalieri and Torricelli - to solve the problem dealing with infinitessimals and with the areas, volumes, and centers of gravity of given geometric figures. His mathematical works echo the polemics that took place in the 17th century between supporters of the method of indivisibles and those such as Guldin and Tacquet, who defended the more rigorous but less cogent exhaustive method of the ancients. "Lectori benevolo" the introduction to Angeli's "De infinitis parabolis" is interesting in this connection. To those who opposed Cavalieri's method by asserting that the continuous is not composed of indivisibles, Angeli replied in agreement with his master, that the method in question does not depend on the composition of the continuous"(DSB.).

A month prior to his graduation he was elected to the Chair of Mathematics, at one time occupied by his uncle, the great mathematician James Gregory, whose <i>Optica promota</i> (1663) had described a reflecting telescope which used parabolic mirrors. As a professor, David Gregory was the first to lecture publicly on the Newtonian philosophy. His lecture notes show that they covered a broad range of subjects including geodesy, optics, dynamics, and various branches of mathematics. Increasingly under attack by his fellow professors at Edinburgh for his radical political views, in 1691 he went to London where he was introduced to Newton and recommended to John Flamsteed, the first astronomer royal. In that same year, Edward Barnard retired from the Savilian professorship of Astronomy at Oxford; backed by Newton's recommendation of him as 'very well skilled in Analysis & Geometry both new & old ... understands Astronomy very well ... & is respected the greatest Mathematician in Scotland', and with Flamsteed's support, Gregory was elected to the chair in face of strong opposition from Edmond Halley. <br/><br/> As Gregory tells us in the preface, the present work is the printed version of lectures delivered at Edinburgh in 1684, adapted to the teaching of Oxford undergraduates. The passage in which Gregory uses the analogy with the human eye to suggest the construction of an achromatic lens occurs on p. 98: in English translation, 'Perhaps it would be of service to make the object lens of a different medium, as we see done in the fabric of the eye; where the crystalline humour (whose power of refracting the rays of light differs very little from that of glass) is by Nature, who never does anything in vain, joined with the aqueous and vitreous humours (not differing from water as to their power of refraction), in order that the image may be painted as distinct as possible on the bottom of the eye.' Whiteside (DSB) suggests that Gregory may have had this insight from Newton. <br/><br/> The work was reprinted at Edinburgh in 1713. An English translation followed two years later with notes by William Browne on refracting telescopes and microscopes; this was republished in 1735 by Desaguliers with an added appendix on the history of the reflecting telescope. <br/><br/> In addition to the present work, Gregory published in 1684 at Edinburgh his <i>Exercitatio geometrica de dimensione figurarum</i> in which, with the assistance of his uncle's work, he extended the method of quadratures by infinite series; and in 1702 <i>Astronomiae physicae & geometricae elementa</i>, the first textbook of astronomy based on Newtonian gravitational principles. <br/><br/> ESTC R16816; DSB V: 520-1; Honeyman 1550; Poggendorff I, 948; Vagnetti CB1.. 8vo (177 x 110 mm), pp. [iv], 99, [1], with engraved vignette of Sheldonian Theatre on title and numerous woodcut diagrams in text. Contemporary calf, hinges cracked but ties still strong, some chipping to capitals but a nice and unsophisticated copy

      Roger Daniel and John Redmayne,, London 1659 - First edition in Latin (issued simultaneously in English) of this important work in the history of physiology. 'In 1659 Charleton published a mechanistic account of physiology in Latin (Oeconomia animalis) and English (Natural History of Nutrition, Life, and Voluntary Motion), which included the suggestion that there was no increase in volume when a muscle contracted. Charleton was here rejecting the Cartesian account which attributed muscle shortening to its inflation by animal spirit. Charleton's assessment was confirmed experimentally by Jonathan Goddard in 1669' (Henry in Oxford DNB). 12mo (128 × 75 mm.), pp. [xxxii], 291, [1].
