Manuscript note on first blank reads, 'This Book was bought | at Mr Gilbert Wakefield's | Sale May 1st 1808.' Gilbert Wakefield, 1756-1801, was born in Nottingham and educated at Jesus College, Cambridge. He took orders in 1778 but soon left the church to become classical tutor at the Nonconformist academy in Warrington. On the closure of the academy in 1783 Wakefield took private pupils in Nottingham and produced the first part of the Silva critica. His edition of Lucretius appeared in 1796-1799 and his light-hearted criticism of Porson's edition of the Hecuba was avenged by Porson's toast: 'Gilbert Wakefield; what's Hecuba to him or he to Hecuba?'. Around this time Wakefield gave up literature for political and religious controversy, attacking writers including William Wilberforce and Thomas Paine. In January 1798 he replied to Bishop Watson's Address to the People of Great Britain, written … [Click Below for Full Description]

Curtz, Albert).
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).

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.

[ENGLAND: PARLIAMENT]
London, printed by John Streater and John Macock, printers to the Parliament, 1659 [i.e. 1660]. 4to., (16)pp., final leaf misnumbered (16) on recto, blank on verso, in modern grey boards, spine lettered. A very good crisp copy. First edition. Wing E 1491. Thomason E.1013[24]. Perhaps the last gasp and the last Republican statement of the Long Parliament which met precariously for the last time between 26th December 1659 and 3rd February 1660, when Monk returned to London and proclaimed a free Parliament. (The Convention Parliament was to convene on 15th April and Charles II would return to assume a constitutional monarchy on 29th May. Monk himself was already on his way south to London.] The Declaration> of January 23, 1659(60) restated the old Parliamentary position vis-à-vis the monarchy. It once again justified the war and confirmed that 'the people of England, and of all the Dominions and Territories thereunto belonging, should be thenceforth governed as a Commonwealth and Free State, by the representatives of the people in Parliament, and that without any King, or House of Lords; judging this not only to be the undoubted right of the people, but that the office of a King in these nations, or to have the power thereof in any single person, as also the House of Lords, was burdensome and dangerous to the safety and liberty of the people: and by this means the foundations of a publique interest being layed in the place of that which was only private and personal, this people might grow up (through the goodness of God) into perfect freedom, being governed in the Supreme Po … [Click Below for Full Description]

CORREA, João Medeiros.
Lisbon, Henrique Valente de Oliveira, 1659. 4°, loose in modern wrappers. Woodcut initial letters. Stitching gone; many conjugate leaves split at fold. Tear into text on H2, without loss. Occasional slight browning. Engraved frontispiece slightly frayed at edges (especially inner) and has a few short tears, but has lost only the extreme edge of coat of arms and small piece of an empty corner. A working copy, in less than good condition. Later signature in blank portion of title and in margin of p. 1. Engraved frontispiece portrait, (8 ll.), 191 pp. [i.e., 195, with 73-76 bis]. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION of a work that is rare, and seldom appears with the portrait: Innocêncio had not seen the portrait in any of the copies he examined. This exposition on the perfect soldier covers such matters as the qualifications of a general, the ethics of keeping or not keeping terms with the enemy, the virtues of cavalry vs. infantry and an army vs. a navy, and the duties, rights, pay and discipline of common soldiers. The author's views are supported by examples from ancient history and from modern wars in Europe and the East. Innocêncio notes that the author's opinions are usually sound, with a few exceptions. For example, on p. 21 he derives the Roman word castra (military camp) from castrados or castos: "porque devem estar livres de todo o appettite e sensualidade: que a castidade é may do esforço ." The poems in the preliminary leaves were written by some of the most noted authors of the time, including Antonio Barbosa Bacellar, Antonio da Fonseca Soares, and Miguel Botelho de Carva … [Click Below for Full Description]

Finé de Brianville, Claude Oronce.
- VD17 23:641786Y; HKJL II, 407. - Sehr seltenes heraldisches "Lehrspiel" (über KVK für uns nur 4 Expl. nachweisbar, davon 2 ohne die Kupfer). Gegenüber der 1659 in Lyon erschienenen Originalausgabe sind erhebliche Änderungen vorgenommen worden. So wurden im deutschen Sprachraum mehr oder weniger unbekannte Adelshäuser durch einheimische ersetzt. Deshalb wird auf dem Titel auch darauf verwiesen, dass das Buch lediglich der Idee des eigentlichen Autors Claude Oronce Finé de Brianville (1608-1674) folge. Diese "Idee" ist recht einfach. Es gibt 52 Tafeln (Karten), die alle das Wappen eines Herrscherhauses zeigen. Dieses wird zusätzlich auf der Spielkarte heraldisch korrekt beschrieben. In der linken oberen Ecken des Blattes ist der Farbwert der Karte angebracht. Zu jeder Karte gibt es im Buch ein erläuterndes Kapitel zum Wappen selbst sowie zur Geographie und Geschichte der jeweiligen Herrschaften. Jedes Kapitel ist um die Zuordnung zu erleichtern in der Überschrift ebenfalls mit dem Farbwert gekennzeichnet. Eine interessante Interpretation der Kupfer liefert Hans Legband, der sie in Beziehung zur Ständeordnung des Deutschen Reichs setzt und dabei eine italienische Ausgabe ausführlich beschreibt (Zu den Quaternionen der Reichsverfassung. S. 495ff. In: Archiv für Kulturgeschichte, Bd. 3 (1905) - Online abrufbar). Da in der ersten französischen Auflage einige Adelige moniert hatten, dass ihre Wappen dem Kartenwert "Bube" bzw. "Valet" zugeordnet worden waren, änderte der Autor die Bezeichnung in der zweiten Auflage in "Chevalier". Dies ist in der deutschen Ausgabe übernommen word … [Click Below for Full Description]

Euclid's Elements is a mathematical and geometric treatise consisting of 13 books written by the ancient Greek mathematician Euclid in Alexandria, Ptolemaic Egypt c. 300 BC. It is a collection of definitions, postulates (axioms), propositions (theorems and constructions), and mathematical proofs of the propositions.

CHAMBERLAYNE, William.
London, Printed for Robert Clavell 1659. 8vo., pp. [16], 258, 113 [i.e. 215], with an engraved frontispiece portrait; slightly browned, but a good copy in contemporary calf, ruled in blind, rebacked, corners worn; unidentified nineteenth-century armorial bookplate; the Bradley Martin copy.First edition of the physician-poet William Chamberlayne's best-known work, a long poem (14,000 lines) in heroic couplets blending Ariosto, Tasso and Greek romances. It deals with the tale of Argalia, a sort of knight errant rescued from the Turks and threatened with execution, and his love for Pharonnida, the king's daughter; a triangle is provided by the seductive and voluptuous Jhonusa and her overwhelming passion for Argalia.Chamberlayne fought for Charles I at the second battle of Newbury – his 'embryonic epic "Pharonnida" accompanied him in manuscript, and several descriptive scenes within the poem are based on the campaigns in the south and west of England' (Oxford DNB). Indeed the Civil War may have interrupted his composition, as he writes at the end of Book II: I mustLet my Pen rest awhile, and see the rustScour'd from my own Sword If in This rising storm of blood, which doth beginTo drop already, I'me not washt intoThe Grave, my next safe Quarter shall renewAcquaintance with Pharonnida, till then,I leave the Muses to converse with men.Chamberlayne evokes 'the mood of the battlefield with chilling precision [The] scenes directly drawn from civil war engagements are perhaps the best that Chamberlayne's limited talents produced, and it is these that offer the most to the modern rea … [Click Below for Full Description]

SANSON d'Abbevile, Nicolas (1600-67)
Paris: N. Sanson & P. Mariette, 1659. Copper-engraved map, with original outline colour. 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 bas … [Click Below for Full Description]
