Lucretius, Titus Carus
London: Printed for Thomas Sawbridge at the Three Flewer-de-luces in little Britain, and Anthony Stephens Bookseller near the Th, 1659. 95-52 B.C. Octavo, 7.6 x 4.5 inches. f Third edition. (a*)4, Ù2, (A)-(D)4, A-Z4, Aa-Ee4, (a)-(h)4, I2.(This copy has an extra blank bound after the title page.) The engraved frontispiece is bound opposite the title. This copy is bound in contemporary calfskin, and has been rebacked. This translation was prepared by Thomas Creech (1659-1700). The prefatory material contains commendatory poems by John Evelyn, Nathaniel Tate, Thomas Otway, and Aphra Behn among others, many of which were added after the first and second editions and this, the third edition contains the first appearance of several poems. The influence of Lucretius can be seen in Pope's 'Essay on Man.' Lucretius was also favorite reading of Shelley, Wordsworth, and Tennyson. "Creech's translation of Lucretius vied in popularity with Dryden's Virgil and Pope's Homer. The son of one of his friends is reported to have said that the translation was made in Creech's daily walk round the parks in Oxford in sets of fifty lines, which he would afterwards write down in his chamber and correct at leisure. [.] When Dryden published his translations from Theocritus, Lucretius, and Horace, he disclaimed in the preface any intention of robbing Creech 'of any part of that commendation which he has so justly acquired,' and referred to his predecessor's 'excellent annotations, which I have often reprinted in the last century, and was included in the edition of the British poets which was issued … [Click Below for Full Description]

FLUDD, Robert
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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Last three leaves very browned and near detached. [vi], 300 pages with twenty figures of an esoteric nature and collates as complete. Wing F1391.

Anonymous.
no publisher/printer, 1659. A satire on Sir John Barkstead, one of the "regicides" who tried and executed Charles I. Barkstead was one of the commissioners at the trial and in his career was also a major-general, a favorite of Cromwell, and lieutenant of the Tower of London. In 1662 it was his turn to meet the executioner, professing his belief in the lawfulness of his actions. There exist at least four different editions of this work. In this edition, line 9 of the title begins "VVhere" and line 19 has "Parliament, Council of State, and Army."

Early 3/4 calf, rubbed, front hinge strained but firm, imprint shaved and top and bottom margins cut close, the main text unaffected; a good copy.

Cleveland, John
Printed: 1659. 1613-1658 Octavo, 5.6 x 3.6 inches. First edition. A2-8, B-I8, K4. This copy lacks the portrait. This copy is a little dirty, the edges are slightly trimmed. It is bound in nineteenth century quarter calfskin and corners with marbled paper boards. The corners are worn and the paper is dirty. This volume begins a new series of Cleveland, which continued, for a few years, to be published concurrently with the regular editions of his works, and was finally incorporated in the edition of 1687. The editor of the collection, E. Williamson, in his epistle 'to the discerning reader' claims to have been a friend of the poet, from whom he received the manuscripts which he here publishes. In his words Cleveland stated to him that 'most of his former printed Poems were truly his own, except such as have been lately added, to make up the volume." Thinks can hardly refer to the borrowings from Fletcher, which appeared the same year as the present publication, since Cleveland died the previous year. The editor admits, both on the title and in his epistle, that he has included some pieces by authors other than Cleveland. The collection contains thirty-six pieces in all. Among them is a Latin version of 'The Rebel Scot,' the original of which had always been included among Cleveland's poems. Four different elegies on Ben Jonson are taken from 'Jonsonus Virbius,' a collection of elegies on Jonson, which was published after his death in 1638. In that volume only one of them, that beginning 'Who first reform'd our stage of justest laws,' is credited to Cleveland; of the other th … [Click Below for Full Description]

John Rushworth
George Thomason c. 1659., London - Contemporary full blind-lined calf boards, rebacked expertly in six compartments of raised blind-lined bands, gilt red and green morocco labels on two and four respectively, gilt text on six, edges marbled. , A contemporary work written to support the Parliamentarians under Cromwell in the English Civil War. This edition is a later state. This can be determined by the detail given to the illustrations on the double page map; in particular the detail given to the ships. The early states have very detailed ships whereas the later states have ships that are sparsely illustrated.??Full of vastly curious and valuable matter? (Bp. Warburton), Rushworth?s Historical Collections narrates a turbulent episode of 17th century English history, when the English Civil War was breaking out. Throughout his narrative, Rushworth shows a partiality towards the side of Parliament. His narrative also issues a warning of the potential chaos and destruction that developments in the British Isles might lead to. The important folding map is untitled and attributed to Wenceslas Hollar (Baynton-Williams, ?New Worlds,? 83), juxtaposing a map of the British Isles with a view of the Battle of Prague ? effectively comparing the Thirty Years? War that was devastating Central Europe with the Civil War that was engulfing England, warning the English of the consequences of civil disorder. The map in very good condition published on laid paper with a handsome watermark. John Rushworth (1612-1690) was an English lawyer, historian and politician who sat on the House of Commons … [Click Below for Full Description]

RAHN, Johann Heinrich, Landvogt zu Kyburg
Four folding printed tables & numerous woodcut diagrams in the text. 6 p.l. (two of these preliminary leaves are mis-bound at end), 188 pp., 4 leaves of errata at end. Small 4to, attractive antique calf, panelled in gilt, gilt fleurons in each corner, spine gilt. Zurich: J.J. Bodmer, 1659. First edition and an absolutely complete copy of this rare and noteworthy mathematical book; our copy has all four folding printed tables (most copies described in OCLC seem to have only three) and an extra leaf of errata not present in the Macclesfield copy (sale, Sotheby's London, 25 Oct. 2005, lot 1705, £12,000 including premium). 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Amstelaedami: ex officina Elzeviriana, 1659, 12°, (24), 404, (28) pp., feiner Pappband im Stil der Zeit, mit Rückenschild; papierbedingt gebräunt. Plinius der Jüngere - Gaius Plinius Caecilius Secundus, auch Plinius der Jüngere, lateinisch Plinius minor (* zwischen 25. August 61 und 24. August 62 n. Chr. in Novum Comum, jetzt Como, Oberitalien; ? um 113 oder 115 wahrscheinlich in der Provinz Bithynia et Pontus), war Anwalt und Senator in der Römischen Kaiserzeit unter den Herrschern Domitian, Nerva und Trajan. Wie sein Onkel, der Naturforscher Plinius der Ältere, ist er für die Nachwelt vor allem wegen seines teilweise überlieferten schriftstellerischen Werkes bedeutsam geblieben. Am bekanntesten sind seine Briefe (lat.: Epistulae) geworden. 369 Briefe sind in zehn Büchern zusammengefasst. Die ersten neun Bücher enthalten 248 Briefe, die Plinius an 105 verschiedene Adressaten gerichtet hatte. Dies waren Freunde, persönliche Bekannte und bekannte Zeitgenossen. Diese Briefe veröffentlichte Plinius selbst, bevor er nach Bithynien ging. Das zehnte Buch umfasst seine Korrespondenz mit Kaiser Trajan (121 Briefe, auch Antwortschreiben des Kaisers). Darin fragte Plinius unter anderem, wie er mit den Angehörigen der frühen christlichen Gemeinden verfahren sollte, denen man wegen ihrer Ablehnung des Kaiserkults mangelnde Staatstreue vorwarf. In den an den Historiker Tacitus gerichteten Briefen 16 und 20 des 6. Buches beschrieb Plinius den Ausbruch des Vesuv (plinianische Eruption), bei dem sein Onkel und Mentor Plinius der Ältere ums Leben gekommen war. Plinius achtete besonders dara … [Click Below for Full Description]

Browne, Thomas
London: Printed by Tho. Milbourn For Andrew Crook, 1659. 1605-1682 Octavo, 6 x 3.75 inches. Fifth edition. A,A-T8, A-E8. Engraved frontispiece by William Marshall. This copy is bound in later smooth calf, gilt ruled edges, all edges gilt. gilt spine with a red. leather label. Hand marbled endsheets, gilt dentelles, quite a nice copy. It is far from clear that Thomas Browne ever considered publishing Religio Medici, his first and most influential work. Written during his medical apprenticeship in the mid-1630s, this essay on the religion of a doctor was (in typical fashion) circulated in multiple manuscripts among friends for seven years until 1642, when Andrew Crooke, an enterprising publisher of controversialist writing, obtained it and printed it anonymously, without the author's permission or knowledge. What Browne would later describe as "a private exercise directed to myself" was an immediate commercial success, and Crooke quickly brought out a second edition. Browne, meanwhile, had wind of a work about to be published by the colourful savant Sir Kenelm Digby, apparently responding to Browne's essay. He immediately set about revising the pirated text for authorised publication in 1643. Together with Digby's Observations upon Religio Medici, the 1643 edition, now with Browne's name on it, established his reputation in English and Continental writing. Religio Medici has been described as spiritual autobiography, but it has in fact only occasional resemblance to the true seventeenth-century exponents of the form like Lucy Hutchinson and John Aubrey. Although Browne's … [Click Below for Full Description]

Angeli, Stephano degli
Venice: Joannem La Nou, 1659 First edition of a scarce mathematical text. OCLC notes copies at Columbia, Harvard, New York Public Library, Linda Hall Library, Michigan, Wisconsin, Göttingen, Oxford, Edinburgh, and Marburg. This book has not appeared at auction in at least the last thirty years, according to American Book Prices Current. Late nineteenth century vellum over decorative boards, gilt cloth spine label. Small quarto. Numerous woodcut diagrams in text. Title-page lightly foxed, light dampstain at lower corner through part of the text. Bottom corner of V1 torn away and reinforced with new paper. Book location label on front pastedown. A very good copy. Stefano degli Angeli (1623-1697) entered the Order of the Gesuati of Saint Jerolamen. At twenty-one, he became a reader of literature, philosophy, and theology in the faculty of his order at Ferrara, but left three years later for health reasons and went to Bologna. At the University of Bologna, under the guidance of Bonaventura Cavalieri (1598-1647), he developed a strong interest in mathematics. Cavalieri was so appreciative of his abilities that he entrusted Angeli with the task of correcting and publishing his last work, Exercitationes geometricae sex (1647). Angeli was offered the opportunity to succeed Cavalieri as professor of mathematics, but turned it down. After various appointments, he became in 1663 professor of mathematics at the University of Padua, a post that had been held by Galileo, and he remained there until his death. Riccati was one of his pupils.Angeli's mathematical works were on infinitesi … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Scott, Thomas]
London: Printed for John Garfield, 1659. First published in 1620 as "Vox populi" when it was suppressed by Royal Command. LACKS the portrait, pp. [6], 31. 1 vols. Sm. 4to. Trade in Spanish America and the West Indies. Acting as Spain's ambassador to England Count Gondomar was to negociate with King James in an effort to reduce the British attacks upon the Spanish possessions in America and in the West Indies and to discourage them from trading there. He was also to keep the British from financing Spain's enemies. He created ill feeling between the King and the Lower House, put an end to the attempt for a match between the Prince of Wales and a Spanish Infanta, and according to this report by Scott kept the British from "furnishing their Navie," in order to reduce their interference in West Indian trade. He drew a great deal of criticism in England for his active part in the destruction of Sir Walter Raleigh. Gondomar was an avid collector of printed books and manuscripts and his library became the Royal Library at Madrid. Dedication signed John Rowland. Wing S2083; Sabin 78362. Later calf gilt. Spine and extremities rubbed, title and final leaf backed and soiled, some staining, especially of "E" gathering , repairs in text made with tissue, a few losses of letters, generally not affecting comprehension, else very good.
