Gallonio, Antonio
Paris: Ex museo Raphaelis Tricheti du Fresne, 1659. Hardcover. Hardcover/No Jacket. 8vo (impeial). Halfbound contemporary calf over marbled boards. A collection of [44] engravings by Antonio Tempesta [1555-1630] plus engraved title page, taken from the French Edition of Antonio Gallonio's work about the Tortures and Torments of the Christian Martyrs. Illustrations show images depicting human torture, devices, and various tools used throughout history. Early bookseller label of Henry March Gilbert [1845-1931] on upper left corner of front pastedown endpaper. Rubbing to corners and spine. Light staining to leaves and endpapers. Otherwise in very good condition. Atonio Gallonio [1556-1605] was a Roman priest in the Congregation of the Oratory. Interested in the Martyrs, Gallonio studied the various methods of torture they endured, resulting in a book on the subject, originally published in Italy in 1591. Later, he translated his work into Latin in 1594. These engravings are taken from the French Edition republished by Raphael Trichet du Fresne with the copper engravings from the Italian Edition. (See Touber, Jetze (2014). Martyrological Torture and the Invention of Empathy: Gallonio's Treatise on the Instruments of Martyrdom and Its Reception in the Seventeenth and Eighteenth Centuries. p. 18). Gallonio's work remains one of the most influential sources on the history of human torture.

MARIETTE, PIERRE
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.

SEVERINO, Marco Aurelio.
Commentarius in Theophrasti Eresii libellum huius argumenti... Neapoli, apud haeredes Camilli Cavalli, 1655 e 1659. 2 parti in 1 volume in-folio, pp. (22), 128, (6), 70, bella legatura coeva in pergamena, titolo ms. lungo il dorso (con restauri). Ambedue le parti con proprio frontespizio e vignetta raffigurante un leone sormontato dalla Vergine del Carmelo; la seconda parte con titolo "De piscibus in sicco" è dedicata a Fortunio Liceti, celebre autore del "De monstris", ed in alcuni esemplari presenta la data 1655 corretta in 1659. Nei numerosi spazi bianchi n.t. dovevano probabilmente essere inserite delle illustrazioni che non vennero mai realizzate. Rara prima edizione di questa monografia antiaristotelica sulla respirazione dei pesci, cui seguono un trattato sui pesci che possono vivere "in sicco", tra cui le tartarughe, e uno sulle foche, di cui compare una graziosa silografia a p. 19 della seconda parte. Severino (1580-1656) studiò medicina a Napoli dove incontrò Tommaso Campanella e si formò sulla filosofia di Telesio e l'antiaristotelismo. Sostenne con entusiasmo la teoria della circolazione del sangue di Harvey e ne ricevette l'unica copia conosciuta con dedica della prima edizione del "De motu cordis". Agli scambi con Harvey si devono probabilmente alcune parti del trattato sulle foche dedicate al sistema circolatorio degli animali (pp. 43-45). Rarissimo: censito in sole 4 Biblioteche pubbliche italiane. Antiche note di possesso ms. abrase al titolo ed in fine, lievi aloni d'umido al margine esterno.. Krivatsy 11051. Manca a Michel-Michel e Cat. Vinciana..

1659. Very nice condition especially for the age of the book. A few worm holes through a few pages. One piece of small tape applied to one of the pages over a worm hole to keep it together. Pages look great, and are sturdy with no tears or issues. I believe the pages were all documents because I see folds on them. There are 185 numbered leaves. Most pages are written on both sides, but only one side is counted, so if you pretty much double the leaves, you would have approximately 360 pages. Some ink has bleed through to the other side, which is normal. This would have happened when written. The calligraphy is absolutely stunning ! Some autographs of early Notaries as you can see. To give you an idea , I think one leaf could be sold for at least a few hundred dollars, although I would never separate the pages from the book. Book measures about 8 1/4 x 12 3/4 inches and is about 1.5 inches thick. Pages are watermarked with a double headed eagle and are consistent with the date.

Harmensz van Rijn detto REMBRANDT (Leida 1606 - Amsterdam 1669)
Acquaforte e puntasecca, 1659, firmata e datata il lastra in basso al centro. Esemplare nel terzo stato di quattro secondo White & Boon. Magnifica prova, ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana descritta da Hinterding come tipica di questa tiratura, rifilata al rame, in perfetti stato di conservazione. L'opera raffigura l'episodio narrato negli Atti degli apostoli. Uno storpio, un mendicante cencioso, siede a terra e protende la mano per ricevere l'elemosina nei pressi della porta del tempio. Pietro leva su di lui le mani in un gesto benedicente; Giovanni gli è accanto e attorno a loro si raduna una piccola folla di curiosi. Questo fu uno dei primi casi di guarigione operati da Pietro e portò al primo scontro tra gli apostoli e i sacerdoti ebraici. Magnifico esemplare. Etching and drypoint, 1659, signed and dated at lower center. Example of the fourth state. A very rich impression, printed with tone on contemporary laid paper with the usual watermark for this state (Hinterding p. 498), trimmed to the platemark, perfect conditions. The work depicts the episode narrated in the Acts of the Apostles. A cripple, a ragged beggar, sitting on the floor and stretches out his hand for alms near the temple door. Peter leverage over him his hands in a gesture of blessing, John is with him and gather around them a small crowd of onlookers. This was one of the first cases of healing operated by Peter and led to the first confrontation between the apostles and the Jewish priests. Magnificent example.

HONDIUS JODOCUS
Claude de la Riviere, Lyon. Copper engraving, mm 415x555, colored, signed N. Picart fecit bottom left. Very rare "carte a figures" from "Les Estats, Empires, Royaumes et Principautez du Monde" by Pierre d'Avity (1673-1735). He first published his work in 1614, but it was continually enlarged, even after his death. The 1659 posthumous edition was the first to contain four maps of the continents. Although it bears the name of Jodocus Hondius, the map is based upon the second state of Janssonius' map of 1623 even if the first derivative map is the Hondius, 1618. The map is embellished by vessels and 10 vignettes with costumes at the borders and 6 view on top (Lisbon, Toledo, London, Paris, Rome and Venice). Restored little hole at scottish border, otherwise very good condition. Some plate tone. Bottom left blank margin added (10 cm). cartografia.

Walker, Obadiah]; Smith, John
J.G. for R. Royston; E. Cotes for George Eversden, London. First editions of two scarce seventeenth-century English works on rhetoric, one an influence on John Dryden's poetic style, the other frequently cited by Samuel Johnson in his great dictionary of the English language. Obadiah Walker's 1659 Art of Oratory divides rhetoric into its constituent parts: invention, elocution, figures of speech, style, recitation, pronunciation, and action. He advises speakers to play with the order and structure of their arguments: "Nothing is more Orator-like than this . . . to agitate, spread and mould the same lump of matter, after many diverse fashions; to change and invert the figure, parts, order, ornaments, of our speech . . . that it seems still diverse, and quite another thing." Tina Skouen has demonstrated Dryden's debt to Walker's principles of elocution in "The Vocal Wit of John Dryden" (Rhetorica, 2006). Bound after Walker, John Smith's 1657 Mysterie was a popular glossary of dozens of rhetorical terms, from aenigma to zeugma, each illustrated with examples from scriptural, classical, and English texts. Epistrophe, "a repetition of the same word or sound in the ends of divers members of a sentence," is illustrated with ten quotations in Latin and English, including the famous line from Corinthians: "When I was a childe, I spake as a childe, I understood as a childe, I thought as a childe." The influence of Smith's Mysterie reached far into English letters, most notably as a source for rhetorical glosses in Johnson's dictionary, where the book is cited simply as "Smith's Rheto … [Click Below for Full Description]

Schoppe, Caspar.
Amstelodami, 1659. Caspar Schoppe (27 May 1576 – 19 November 1649) was a German controversialist and scholar. He was born at Neumarkt in the upper Palatinate and studied at several German universities. He converted to Roman Catholicism in about 1599, after reading the Annales Ecclesiastici of Baronius. Schoppe obtained the favour of Pope Clement VIII, and distinguished himself by the virulence of his writings against the Protestants. He became involved in a controversy with Joseph Justus Scaliger, formerly his intimate friend, and others; wrote Ecclesiasticus auctoritati Jacobi regis oppositus (1611), an attack upon James I of England; and in Classicum belli sacri (1619) urged the Catholic princes to wage war upon the Protestants. In about 1607, Schoppe entered the service of Ferdinand, archduke of Styria, afterwards Ferdinand II, Holy Roman Emperor, who found him very useful in rebutting the arguments of the Protestants, and who sent him on several diplomatic errands. According to Pierre Bayle, he was almost killed by some Englishmen at Madrid in 1614, and again fearing for his life he left Germany for Italy in 1617, afterwards taking part in an attack upon the Jesuits. ; Following the other books; Paradoxia literaria, Amsterdam 1659, 6 pages, 94 pages,------ Auctuarium ad Grammaticam philosophicam ejusque rudimenta, Amsterdam 1659, 88 pages. ---- De rhetoricarum exercitationum geberibus, Amsterdam 1660 30 pages. ----- De paedia humanarum ac divinarum literarum, Amsterdam 1660, 40 pages. ---- Consultationes de scholarum & studiorum ratione, Amsterdam 1660, 73 pages. --- In … [Click Below for Full Description]

He employed a flamboyant preaching style that was considered highly effective in furthering the interests of the Puritan cause. From a radically Protestant family of Cornwall, England, though of part Dutch origin, Peters emigrated to a Puritan colony in America, where he first rose to prominence. After spending time in Holland, he returned to England, and became a close associate and propagandist for Cromwell. Peters may have been the first to propose the trial and execution of Charles I, and was believed to have assisted at the beheading.

Wear and imperfections from age and use. 1659 Essays of Michel de Montaigne in French Renaissance Philosophy Humanism Â"The greatest thing in the world is to know how to belong to oneself.Â" ― Michel de Montaigne, The Complete Essays First published in 1580, the Essays of Michel de Montaigne were a collection of essays and writings on a variety of topics and content. Montaigne was rather decisive in his rhetoric and used various Ancient Greek, Latin, and Italian texts as examples and references, such as Lucretius and Plutarch quotations. Montaigne himself stated that the goal of his essays was to describe man with Â'utter frankness and honesty.Â' According to the scholar Paul Oskar Kristeller, "the writers of the period were keenly aware of the miseries and ills of our earthly existence". Montaigne sought to break man down into his basic features, which, at the time, was extreme volatility. He wrote on marriage being an absolute necessity for raising children, but he also quoted, in the Â'Essays,Â' that Â"Marriage is like a cage; one sees the birds outside desperate to get in, and those inside desperate to get out."

With the vertical half-title often missing from copies of this edition. Despite the collation, this copy is complete, with the collation matching that of copies noted on COPAC and Worldcat. A relatively early edition of Culpeper's important work on herbalism and medicines with instructions on the formulation and use of spirits and distilled waters, wines, decoctions, syrups, powders, pills, ointments, plasters etc etc. 'A Key to Galen's Method of Physick' at the end of the volume has it's own title page dated 1658. Bound in contemporary full calf boards, sympathetically rebacked with the spine lettered in gold. Front and rear flyleaves replaced but using near-contemporary matching paper to the original paper stock. Half title reinforced at it's gutter and lightly chipped at it's foredge. Loss to the upper corner of one leaf (F3) with the loss to parts of 9 lines of text as a result. This leaf also has a small hole at the foredge margin resulting in the loss of one letter of text from the affected area. Occasional light marking to a few pages. Otherwise, a clean copy with the text block sound and the binding in good condition. NB The price of this item is negotiable dependent on your chosen payment method. Please feel free to make contact for further information on this item or on payment options. Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Polwheile (or Polwhele), Theophilus
London: Printed for Thomas Johnson, 1659. First printing. Hardcover. Very Good. First edition, 1659. 8vo, mid 19th century brown calf, (48) 424 (46) pp. including 8 pp. publisher's catalog, errata leaf at end, text clean, bright, collated complete, ownership signature of a B. Fuller in an old hand on bottom of title page, probably not that of Bishop William Fuller, but perhaps. Polwheile was a minister based mainly in Tiverton; the year after this was published, in the Restoration of 1660, he was ejected from his ministerial position for his religious views and for his sympathies with the Independents, who advocated for local control and for a certain freedom of religion for those who were not Catholic; because of this, he was often in trouble until the Declaration of Indulgence by James II in 1687, establishing freedom of religion in England (James II being Catholic). Polwheile died in 1689.
