        Relatione delle missioni de' vescovi vicarii apostolici, mandati dalla S. Sede apostolica alli regni di Siam, Cocincina, Camboia, e Tunkino.Rome, printed by the Sacra Congregatio de Propaganda Fide, 1677. 4to. Modern vellum.

      Cordier, Indosinica, col. 827; ICCU 024 167; cf. Lach & Van Kley III, pp. 239-240, 385. First and only Italian translation of a work on the French mission to Siam, Cochinchina, Cambodia and Tonkin, originally written in French. It contains the story of three French Jesuits who left Paris around 1660 to go as missionaries to the Far East. One of them died on the journey, but the other two, Louis Chevreuil and Antoine Hainques, made it to Southeast Asia. Chevreuil arrived in 1664 in Siam, and within five months he traveled to Cochinchina, where he had to leave due to persecution of Christians, discussed in the second part of the book. Hainques arrived in Cochinchina in 1665. Chevreuil was sent to Cambodia, which is covered in the third part of the book. The book is based on their letters and reports. Each part mentions the journey the missionaries took and the places they visited, giving descriptions of Mosambique, the islands Madagascar, Réunion and Cape Verde and more.Some minor foxing throughout, the first two leaves and the last leaf slightly soiled, and a small restored tear in the second leaf, otherwise still in good condition.

The Justice of the Peace, His Clerks Cabinet: Or, A Book of Presidents, Or Warrants, Fitted and Made Ready to His Hand for Every Case that May Happen Within the Compass of His Masters Office. For the Ease of the Justice of Peace, And More Speedy Dispatch of Justice. London: Printed by D. Maxwell, For William Lee, Daniel Pakeman, And Gabriel Bedell, 1660. [xvi], 127, [1] pp. Octavo (5-1/2" x 3-1/2"). Recent period-style calf, blind rules to boards, blind fillets to spine, endpapers renewed. Title printed within typographical border, typographical head-pieces, woodcut decorated initials. Moderate toning to text, occasional light soiling, chips and edgewear to title page and several leaves, a few with recent repairs, lower section lacking from rear endleaf. Early annotations to rear endleaf, interior otherwise clean. A nice copy in an attractive binding. $950. * First edition, one of two issues from 1660. Active in the Protectorate, where he was Cromwell's legal advisor, Sheppard aimed to reform the common law. Ahead of his time in many ways, some of his proposals anticipate changes that were adopted in the nineteenth century. His work was well-received and deeply influential. Some of his books, most notably The Touchstone of Common Assurances (1648), were standard authorities into the nineteenth century. A second edition of his JP manual was published in 1672. This is a very scarce work. Counting both imprints, OCLC locates 9 copies of the first edition, 7 in North America, 4 in law libraries (Northwestern, Southern Methodist University, University of Pennsylvania, Yale). English Short-Title Catalogue R31195. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Receuil, des plus beaux portails de plusieures eglises de Paris.[Paris], Jacques van Merle, 1660. Series of 11 (of 12) engraved prints, including the title-print, showing elevations and plans of 17th-century Parisian baroque churches, portals and altars, some naming the architects Mansart, Brosse and Le Mercier. With:(2) MAROT, Jean. [Recueil de plusieurs portes des principaux hostels et maisons de la ville de Paris ensemble le retable des plus considerables autels des eglises].[Paris, Pierre Mariette II, ca. 1660/65]. Series of 19 (of 20) etched prints showing portals of numerous Paris churches and civic buildings. (3) LE PAUTRE, Jean. Retables dautels a lItaliene inventes et graves par Jean Potre .Paris, Pierre Mariette II, [ca. 1660/65].

      - Extensive description on request Interesting and important early collection of 11 very rare architectural print series (with a few additional prints from other series bound with them) giving in total 120 engraved and etched plates of churches, other buildings, portals, altars, mantelpieces, ceilings and wall panels, alcoves, pulpits, architectural decorations (including helmets, military insignia, decorated borders, friezes, masks), fountains and grottoes, mainly in Paris and surroundings. The prints are etched and engraved by the best and most famous artists in Paris in the 1650s and 1660s: Jean Le Pautre, Jean Marot ('Le grand Marot'), Pierre Cottart, Jean Boisseau, Antoine Pierretz and Francesco Fanelli. All but Boisseau's were published and printed by the two most famous printers of engravings and etchings: Pierre Mariette II and Jacques van Merle. None of the 11 series is demonstrably later than 1661, though some may be later in the 1660s. The fact that each print series at least generally shows a consistent paper stock and the fact that the endleaves show a watermark contemporary with the latest print series strongly suggests that each series comes from a single impression as published and that they were bound together soon after publication: this is not a collection assembled from separate prints by a collector. It is of the greatest importance for the history of French architecture during the seventeenth century.

        Homer his Iliads Translated, Adorn'd with Sculpture, and Illustrated with Annotations

      London: printed by Thomas Roycroft, to be had at the Author's House, 1660. Folio. Letterpress title in red and black. Engraved frontispiece, engraved portraits of Ogilby and Charles II, engraved statue of Homer and 48 plates engraved by W. Hollar and others after Cleyn and others. Contemporary red morocco, expertly rebacked to style retaining the five central compartments of the original spine, marbled endpapersProvenance: S.P. (initials in gilt on the spine)First edition of Ogilby's lavishly illustrated edition of Homer's Iliad, among the most beautiful editions ever printed.John Ogilby began his professional life a far cry from the world of publishing, as an apprentice to a dancing master. Having no formal education, he began learning Latin in his forties with the help of members of the University of Cambridge whom he had befriended. In 1649, having had some success at a young age with creating his own verse, he attempted a translation of Virgil. Meeting with a positive response, he turned his study to Greek so that he could translate Aesop and Homer. Beyond simple translations, his editions of such classics include significant marginal annotations, synthesizing previous scholarship. However, the common thread among his works, and the principal reason for his success in his lifetime and beyond, are the numerous illustrations which adored his works.The illustrated folio editions of such classics were a new and welcome addition to the mid-17th century English book market and led to the larger more expansive geographical works for which he is best remembered. For the lavish illustrations in his works, Ogilby commissioned prints from some of the best designers and engravers working in England, including Francis Cleyn ( d. 1658), Wenceslaus Hollar (1607-1677), William Faithorne ( c. 1620-1691), and Pierre Lombart (1612/13-1682). To subsidize his publications, particularly costly because of the quality of both paper and illustrations, Ogilby was one of the first publishers to be fully successful at using a combination of subscription and lotteries.Ogilby's version of the Iliad first appeared in 1660; five years later, he published his translation of the Odyssey. A second edition of the Iliad followed in 1669 (although with fewer plates than the original). "The versions of [Homer by] John Ogilby fired the enthusiasms of a youthful Alexander Pope, and despite his later reservations, furnished many rhymes and potential couplet-shapings for his own versions. Both were lavishly illustrated folios 'replete with magnificent plates which depicted the Greek and Trojan heroes in dignified costumes, settings and attitudes in the grand manner of Renaissance painting', and which offered a more coherent impression of Homer than the text" (Oxford History of Classical Reception in English Literature, p. 170).The provenance of this volume is intriguing. At the Ham House sale (Sotheby's, 24-5 November 1947), a third folio Shakespeare similarly bound in morocco with the same initials on the spine, was suggested at the time to have been from Samuel Peyps's library. However Nixon, in his 1984 work on Pepys's bindings, refutes the attribution: "The suggestion made 'tentatively' in the Ham House sale catalogue ... that the fine turkey copy of the Third Folio with the initials 'SP' on the spine might have been Pepys's is wildly improbable. He certainly did not use turkey leather for any of his bindings during the 1660s nor did he add his initials to the spine of any of his books." The owner of this fine copy of The Iliad remains an unidentified collector of the Restoration period.Wing H-2548; Schuchard 7.

Mit ihr ließ sich die Vergänglichkeit aller irdischen Macht und die Unüberwindlichkeit des Heiligen Römischen Reiches als letztes der vier Weltreiche vor dem Jüngsten Gericht auf damals durchaus allgemeinverständliche Art darstellen. Christoph Maucher (1642-nach1705) schnitt nach diesen Vorlagen Bernsteintafeln, die in einen Stuhl eingearbeitet wurden, den der brandenburgische Kurfürst Friedrich Wilhelm I. an Kaiser Leopold I. schenkte. - Die "Collaert"- Folge wurde dann 60 Jahre später von dem Nürnberger Verleger Paulus Fürst noch einmal herausgegeben (1660), diesmal mit deutschen Versen unterlegt und von Greogorius Frentzel gestochen. - Alle Darstellungen zeigen Feldherrn mit Standarten zu Pferde über ihren besiegten Gegnern.

      1660 ca. 1660 - Manuscrit in-8 (120 x 180 mm) de (2) f. de garde (100) ff., écriture cursive très lisible à l?encre brune, maroquin rouge, dos à cinq nerfs cloisonné et fleuronné, décor à la Duseuil sur les plats, tranches dorées (reliure de l'époque). Superbe recueil calligraphié des Institutions de Justinien en latin établi dans la seconde moitié du XVIIe siècle certainement à des fins scolaires, un ex-libris manuscrit contemporain de l'ouvrage en attestant : Ce livre appartient à Mlle Watellet. Les Institutions furent d'ailleurs rédigées comme un manuel pour accompagner la promulgation du Code et du Digeste de Justinien, afin de faciliter l'enseignement et l'étude du droit. Inspiré en grande partie de celui de Gaius, il en reprend pour l'essentiel le plan, en séparant les personnes et les biens, séparation qui est encore celle du Code civil français et de beaucoup de textes juridiques contemporains. Très bel exemplaire en maroquin rouge du temps.

Of the fteen plates now ascribed to Van Dyck himself, eleven are present in this copy, with the other four having been re-engraved, as is the case with the Hendricx issue. "Sir Anthony Van Dyck stands out as the solitary great etcher of the school. Portrait etching had scarcely had an existence before his time, and in his work it suddenly appears at the highest point ever reached in the art" (Hind, p.v165). "The plan of this publication took shape after Van Dyck returned from Italy (1626) and before he went to England (1632). He made careful preparatory drawings in chalk and brush for the publication. He directed and revised the work of the engravers, the best of the Rubens circle; he collaborated with his etching needle in some of the plates and himself etched the most beautiful set, mainly portraits of artists. One of the most brilliant in human characterization is the portrait of Peter Brueghel the Younger, son of the great Peasant Brueghel. It is remarkable that the etching appeared in this sketchy form in the book, proving that the master regarded it as nished. All interest is focussed on the wonderful hand. The first edition was published in Antwerp in 1635-1636. Yet it was not complete, and the title-page did not appear before the Gillis Hendricx edition of 1645, engraved by Jacob Neels" (Benesch, Artistic and Intellectual Trends, p. 32.) Hofer, Baroque Book Illustrations 132. With an important provenance, collected by Pierre Mariette, second- generation in the family rm of one of the leading engravers, book publishers, and print sellers in 17th-Century Paris. When he bought the business from his father in 1657, it was valued at an astonishing 30,000 livres. His own prodigious stock and collection would pass through the hands of his son Jean, and grandson Jean-Pierre (who catalogued the Crozat collection, considered the rst modern descriptive catalogue). This lineage of experts had access to, and obtained, the nest Old Master prints and drawings in Europe, and their dispersal after Jean-Pierre 's death included the "Spencer Albums" of prints. They are to this day one of the most important acquisitions made by Harvard University. It is unknown when the present suite of Van Dyck's important portrait series left the Mariette family, and it is possible that it remained unbound into the Nineteenth Century, and that this is therefore its fi rst binding. Joseph Maberly described "Pierre Mariette... [as] an eminent collector and dealer about the middle of the seventeenth century. He was accustomed, whenever he happened to become possessed of an impression of more than ordinary beauty, to write his name in full, and a date, on the face of the print [as well as on the back], and although this is certainly a dis gurement, yet such is Pierre Mariette 's reputation for judgment, that to be thus dis gured, is no disparagement to a print, but the contrary" (Maberly, The Print Collector, An Introduction to the Knowledge Necessary for Forming a Collection of Ancient Prints, Edited by Robert Hoe, New York, 1880, p.81).

        FIDES-ANGELICANA. OR A PLEA FOR THE PUBLICK-FAITH OF THESE NATIONS . .

      London: N.p., 1660. FIRST EDITION. Written at the beginning of the Restoration period in England, this anti-imperialist pamphlet pleads for the fair compensation and equitable treatment of its citizens for the sake of the nation's honor. The author, no doubt, counted himself among those who were unjustly treated by Parliament; indeed, his financial problems seem to have been closely tied to the volatile political climate and his relative favor or unfavor. Although Wither (1588-1667) made his name as a poet and satirist, he became increasingly radicalized in his mature adulthood, associating with the progressive Levellers during the English Civil War. After Charles II's rise to power, Wither produced this and several other anti-imperialist pamphlets, for which he was sent to Newgate and then to the Tower under the charge of seditious libel. Despite his imprisonment, Wither continued to write and publish a number of works including "Paralellogrammaton" and "The Prisoners Plea" (both 1662). DNB speculates that the present work was probably published in 1661 (despite the 1660 imprint on the title) due to a reference to Venner's rising, which occured in January of that year. This work also contains a list of the author's publications on pp. 90-94, including a few works that are now lost.. 160 x 105 mm. (6 3/8 x 4 1/4)" [2], 94 pp. FIRST EDITION. Contemporary sheep.

        World map - Frederick de Wit, 1660.

      ?Nova Totius Terrarum Orbis Tabula?. Copper engraving made by Frederick de Wit ?t Amsterdam in de Calverstraat inde Witte Pascaart 1660, published in De Zee-Atlas Ofte Water-Wereld of Hendrik Doncker in Amsterdam from 1660 to 1670. With original hand colouring. Size: 47 x 56 cm (plus margins).This was De Wit?s first world map. He derived it from the two hemisphere maps from Blaeu?s wall map of 1648, reducing them in scale and making some changes. (Bleau's own smaller world map with two hemispheres can be found here.) The upper corners contain northern and southern celestial maps and the lower corners show north and south polar projections. In the bottom center are astronomical diagrams -- a geocentric one on the left and a Copernican one on the right. The top center vignette shows the sun encircled by a zodiacal ring. Between the maps and diagrams are four vignettes with allegorical depictions of the Four Elements (air, fire, earth and water). The map also includes Baroque decorations of garlands of fruit and flowers.A magnificent example of the art of mapmaking, this map is one of only 19 reproduced in color in Rodney Shirley?s major scholarly work on world maps of the 15th to 17th centuries. In accompanying text, the author states that ?[e]specially when richly coloured, De Wit?s map is one of the most decorative standard-size maps of the time and it is much less commonly found than his three other atlas world maps.?Frederick de Wit (1630-1706) was founder of a prominent map publishing firm in 17th century Amsterdam, the golden age of Dutch cartography. The De Wit family both published their own atlases and supplied maps to other cartographers such as Hendrik Doncker.Reference: Rodney Shirley (1983)- ?The Mapping of the World: Early Printed World Maps 1472-1700?, p. 421, plate 311.Price: ?11.500,- (incl. frame).

Ffep heavily chipped, with 1864 owner's name, reinforced at the foreedge. There is no half-title, first leaf is title page; two owner's names or notations, Anglesey Dec. 5 1663 and Stanford 1693. Obverse of title page blank; follows 3pp dedicatory 'To His Majesty Charles the Second'; another blank page is followed by the marvelous frontispiece which faces the introductory 'Poems by the Author.' A 6pp preface addressed 'to the tru Philologer' ends with a publisher's notice apologizing in advance for the inevitable errors in this first impression. There is some penciled marginalia in the preface and first few pages of the dictionary; there are also ink notes, much older, but nothing in the dictionary after the first 6 pages. Page 7 has piece torn from the foreedge with a few words lost. Text browning, few pages much more than most others, but everywhere legible. Dictionary followed by the phrasebook, with sections on anatomy, hunting, architecture, etc. Section on Navigation again has inked marginalia. The penciled underlines and check marks also appear occasionally. The first page of Section 50 of this part has a piece torn from foreedge, but no loss of words. The title page for this section (dated 1659) is bound in after the contents. The Proverbs or Paroimiographia section follows, also with a title page dated 1659. Apparently Franklin lifted proverbs from this section and published them in the same order (he was filling space in his Almanac and never intended or supposed that they would be ascribed to him). Full sub-title: Whereunto is Adjoined a large Nomenclature of the proper Terms (in all the four) belonging to several Arts and Sciences, to Recreations, to Professions both Liberal and Mechanick, &c. Divided into Fiftie Two Sections;With another Volume of the Choicest Proverbs in all the said Toungs, (consisting of diverse compleat Tomes) and the English translated into the other Three, to take off the reproach which useth to be cast upon Her, That She is but barren in this point, and those Proverbs She hath are both flat and empty. Moreover, There are sundry familiar Letters and Verses running in all Proverbs, with a particular Tome of the British or old Cambrian Sayed-Sawes and Adages, which the Author thought fit to annex hereunto, and make Intelligible, for their great Antiquity and Weight: Lastly, there are five Centuries of New Sayings, which, in tract of Time, may serve for Proverbs to Posterity.. First Edition. Hard Cover.
