Ruggle, George.
Ex officina I[ohn] R[edmayne], 1659. Early, uncommon edition (first printed in 1630) of the tremendously popular Latin-language academic farce that introduced the title's modern English usage. First produced in 1615 in Clare College, Cambridge, the play, which took six hours to perform at its premiere, mocks a foolish lawyer prone to particularly inept use of legal jargon in Latin. The copper-engraved frontispiece here features the protagonist in front of an array of reference books and case documents such as "Proude Buzzard contra Peake Goose." This is the stated "editio quarta, locis sexcentis emendatior." Provenance: Front free endpaper with inked ownership inscription of Richard Wattel; back free endpaper with inked note: "H.h Price ex dono Rich. Wattel 17 June 1810."

Boxhornius a donné une nouvelle édition de ces lettres, aussi chez les Elzévirs, en 1653. Elle est encore assez jolie, quoique moins que la première [von 1640 !]. Cette seconde édition a reparu en 1659, sans aucun changement. Elle contient le même nombre des pages, 404, et est calquée avec beaucoup d'exactitude sur celle de 1653, ce qui a fait supposer faussement à quelques personnes qu'elle était la même, et que le titre seul était changé. M. Brunet dit que l'édition de 1653 est plus correcte que celle de 1640; mais la correction d'une faute de pagination ne suffit pas pour fonder ce qu'il avance, et il se trouve en quelque sorte en contradiction avec lui-même, puisqu'il dit en même temps que la seconde édition est copiée page pour page et ligne pour ligne sur la première .").

ONE OF THE EARLIEST MAPS TO DEPICT ALL 5 GREAT LAKES - Amerique SeptentrionaleAll of North America, with California depicted as an island. Engraved by Pierre mariette, published by Nicolas Sanson in 1659. First map to name Lakes Superior and Ontario. Burden calls this a "landmark map of North America. It was drawn, with his usual care, using the sinusoidal projection which is sometimes known by the name Sanson-Flamstead.It is, perhaps, most important for being the first printed map to delineate the five Great Lakes in a recognizable form... To the west, S Fe, Navajo, Apache, Taosij and others all appear for the first time. The first is incorrectly placed on the west bank of the Rio Grande, here again flowing to the south-west. These were the first advances in the geography of this region for some time. The information was derived from the travels of Father Alonso de Benavides in the late 1620's...California as an island is of the Briggs type with some important alterations; Sanson introduces four placenames from the de Laet map of 1630, C. de Fortune, C. de Pinos, C. de S.Martin and C. de Galera..." There were three states of the map, of which this is the third. The first state, of which only two examples were known, had no land to the north-west of California; the second state, also quite uncommon, added coastline at that point, and eliminated a few placenames north of California; the third state is the same as the second, except that Lake Ontario has been shaded to match the other Great Lakes.

Housed in custom half morocco clamshell box. $24,000.First edition in English of Fludd's “grand synthesis of knowledge,” based on intricate, interwoven theories of mysticism, natural magic, Neoplatonism, alchemy, hermeticism and Paracelsianism, featuring numerous woodcut engravings.A controversial Rosicrucian and physician, Robert Fludd (1574-1637) first encountered occult circles during his time at St. John's College, Oxford. “The chief English representative of that school of medical mystics which laid claim to the possession of the key to universal science” (DNB), Fludd traveled extensively through Europe after graduation, a period in which it “seems likely that he was exposed to hermeticism and Paracelsianism,” and on returning to London, began his life's work amidst almost immediate and continuing controversy (ODNB). “Remembered for his connection with the fraternity of the rosy cross… [and] his position that all true natural science is rooted in revelation” (DNB), Fludd preceded his Mosaicall Philosophy with only one other work in English, Doctor Fudd's answer unto M. Foster (1631). It was there that Fludd defended his belief in the efficacy of a weapon-salve based on the Paracelsian doctrine of curing a wound by anointing it with the weapon that caused it—in this instance with … [Click Below for Full Description]

MENGOLI, Pietro.
Bologna: Giovanni Battista Ferroni, 1659. First edition, and a fine copy from the library of Pietro Riccardi, of this very rare and highly original work in which Mengoli "set up the basic rules of the calculus thirty years before Newton and Leibniz. Both of these were influenced by his contribution, in the case of Leibniz the influence was direct as he read Mengoli's work, while in the case of Newton he knew of it indirectly through studying Wallis" (MacTutor History of Mathematics). Mengoli develops here a new method of quadratures, i.e., finding the areas of geometrical figures, based on François Viète's symbolic, or 'specious' algebra, and on his own new theory of 'quasi proportions,' the first true theory of limits. Like the Geometria indivisibilibus (1635) of Mengoli's master Bonaventura Cavalieri, the Geometriae is an important precursor of the integral calculus. Cavalieri's method of indivisibles, which was entirely geometrical, had been much criticized by his contemporaries for having uncertain foundations, and Mengoli wrote the Geometriae in part as a defense of Cavalieri. Mengoli's 'specious geometry' is, however, an entirely new method with a largely algebraic basis. This is an extremely rare book: OCLC records just one copy in the US (New York Public Library), and we have located only one copy in auction records. In the first decades of the seventeenth century mathematicians began to assimilate the symbolic algebra introduced by Viète in his great work In Artem Analyticem Isagoge (1591). The first important consequence was Descartes' La Géométrie (1637), whic … [Click Below for Full Description]

In Hamburg war Greflinger sowohl als Übersetzer wie auch als Gelegenheitsdichter ungemein produktiv. Literarhistorischen Ruf erlangte seine Übersetzung des Cid von Pierre Corneille (die erste in Deutschland). In den Jahren 1663/65 begann Greflinger mit der Herausgabe der Zeitung Norddeutscher Mercurius, die von seinen Söhnen bis 1730 fortgeführt wurde.

[SOREL, Sieur de Souvigny, Charles].
Paris: Charles de Sercy, 1659. Duodecimo, 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. Slightly browned but a very good copy.

Rushworth, John, comp.
Rushworth (1612?-90), a partisan of Cromwell and Parliament, compiled one of the most famous and still sought-after assemblages of documents on the history of England during the early Stuart period and the Civil War era. Biased though it be, the work is a major source for historians, both amateur and professional, and for students of English law.For the latter, in addition to the obvious parliamentary proceedings, there is the noteworthy inclusion at the end of vol. III of the "Star Chamber Reports" that compose the appendix, and the devotion of all of vol. VIII to the trial of Thomas, Earl of Stratford; the set in hand has the issue of vol. I having no map but two plates, both present. As our caption notes, this vast repository purports to have been made as "a bare narrative" of its "fact[s]"; but it now resonates with a richness far beyond mere chronicle.=> It repays both extended and "dip-in" reading for pleasure.

VAUGELAS (Claude Favre de)

Rare 6e édition du célèbre traité de Vaugelas, dont l'influence fut considérable. Il chercha à définir et à codifier le bon usage du français en s'inspirant de la langue parlée à la cour du roi, dans la lignée de Malherbe. Ainsi il distinguait l'usage de la Cour et du grand monde de l'usage populaire. Vaugelas a résumé les qualités essentielles de notre langue : " Il n'y a jamais eu de langue où l'on ait parlé plus purement et plus nettement qu'en la nôtre, qui soit plus ennemie des équivoques et de toutes sortes d'obscurités, plus grave et plus douce tout ensemble, plus propre pour toute sorte de style, plus chaste en ses locutions, plus judicieuse en ses figures, qui aime plus l'élégance et l'ornement, mais qui craigne plus l'affectation... Elle sait tempérer ses hardiesses avec la pudeur et la retenue qu'il faut avoir pour ne pas donner dans les figures monstrueuses où donnent aujourd'hui nos voisins... Il n'y en a point qui observe plus le nombre et la cadence que la nôtre, en quoi consiste la véritable marque de la perfection des langues ". L'autorité de Vaugelas en matière de langue française a subsisté durant tout le XVIIe siècle. ¶ En Français dans le Texte n° 93 "Le livre définissait une norme aristocratique que les contemporains s'efforcèrent de respecter en parlant Vaugelas, selon l'expression de Molière" - Tchemerzine-Scheler V, 948 (n'a pas vu cette édition, et se trompe à pr … [Click Below for Full Description]

SWINDEN, Tobias.
Caillet 10495; STCN 297970747. Third edition of the French translation of a work on hell by the English clergyman Tobias Swinden (1659-1719). Besides the punishments one can expect in hell, it mostly deals with the location of hell. Stating that the fire in hell isn't a metaphor, but real fire, and that the fire was eternal, Swinden places the hell in the sun. He includes different opinions on the placement of hell, refuting the idea of fire (and hell) being inside of the earth. He also tries to reconcile science and religion, referring to Copernicus and Tycho Brahe, and agreeing that the sun, and not the earth, is the center of the universe and not the earth. In spite of the scholarly approach of the work, it became rather popular and appeared in various editions and translations.With two bookplates on paste-down. Title-page slightly soiled, margins slightly browned throughout and with a few small spots. Binding only slightly soiled. Overall in very good condition.
