        Reflections upon some persons and things in Ireland, by letters to and from Dr Petty: with Sir Hierome Sankey's speech in Parliament.

      London: for John Martin, James Allestreye, and Thomas Dicas, 1660 - Octavo (149 × 95mm). Contemporary sprinkled calf, red morocco label, neatly rebacked. Corners lightly rubbed, free endpapers renewed. Slight crease to title, which is lightly soiled and has a small rust hole just touching one letter. A very good copy. First edition of Petty's epistolary self-defence against Sir Hierome Sankey's 1659 parliamentary defamation of Petty's 1650s Survey of Ireland. In his capacity of Surveyor-general of Ireland, Petty's work facilitated land redistribution of "8,400,000 acres to new (and usually protestant) owners" (Oxford DNB). The sluggishness of the process sparked murmurs of discontent, fanned by suggestions that Petty had made considerable personal gains from the undertaking: he acknowledged benefiting by at least £9000. On 24 March 1659 whispers of suspected chicanery were publicised when "on behalf of the State" Sankey censured Petty as "a very beast of prey, full of fraud and rapine" before the Commons. In this account Petty declares "envy" to have been the root of Sankey's allegations. The work is "a polemical essay on the Survey, which Petty had described in full and sober detail in The History of the Survey of Ireland [not published until 1851]. His Reflections was composed in the heat of the controversy and was the necessary means by which Petty might seek to justify himself in the eyes of his friends" (Keynes).

Una delle due edizioni stampate dagli Elzevir dei Ragionamenti di Aretino. Ambedue sono rare e ricercate e contengono per la prima volta La puttana errante. Anche la veste tipografica è pressochè identica, a parte La puttana errante che è su 38 pagine in una tiratura e su 54 pagine nell'altra: secondo Brunet la prima è quella con La puttana errante su 38 pagine, mentre Willems dà la precedenza a quella su 58 pagine.

Both are equally rare and sought after and the first to contain the Puttana errante, a pseudo - Aretine text. They are also almost identical but for a few variations in the set up, the most notable being that the Puttana errante is on 38 pp. in one issue and on 54 pp. in the other (for a detailed description cf. Brunet and Willems). A particularly attractive copy, bound in 18th century red morocco, spine in compartments and richly gitl, gilt fillets on covers, inner gilt dentelles, marbled end papers, gilt edges; from the library of Roger Peyrefitte, with his bookplate loosely inserted; preserved in a modern slipcase.

        La Carta Del Navigar Pitoresco Dialogo

      1660. BOSCHINI, Marco. La Carta del Navegar Pitoresco. [20], 680, [10] pp. Illustrated with an engraved allegorical frontispiece, an engraved portrait, and 25 full-page engravings. Small 4to., 211 x 145 mm, bound in French early eighteenth-century full red morocco, gilt-tooled spine. In Venetia: Per li Baba, 1660. |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition, an important work by this early Venetian connoisseur. It is one of the most influential works on Italian art of the seventeenth century, and that which placed the Venetian school of painting before all others (Benezit). Marco Boschini (1613-1678) was a Venetian painter, engraver and art dealer whose most important client, Cardinal Leopoldo de' Medici, commissioned him to purchase Venetian paintings for the Medici collection. Filippo Baldinucci (1624-1697) was placed in charge of the Tuscan school and Carlo Cesare Malvasia (1616-1693) the Bolognese school. Boschini's book is written in Venetian dialect and takes the form of a tour through Venice by the author and a companion, discus-sing in detail the art that they encounter. The conversation touches on the technique, the style and the regional flavor of the Venetian paintings at hand. The English pioneer connoisseur of Italian baroque art, Sir Denis Mahon, considered Boschini "the most remarkable writer in the minority (anti-classic) camp in Seicento Italy." Magnificent copy. Cicognara 976 "operetta interessantissima." Schlosser-Magnino 547. Borroni I, 1619. Mahon, Studies in Seicento Art and Theory, 1947, p. 48. Gamba 118.

        Le Nombre des ecclesiastiques de France, celuy des religieux et des religieuses, le temps de leur Etablissement, ce dont ils subsistent, et a quoy ils servent

      [France, no date, not before 1660]. Half-sheet 8vo (149 x 100 mm). Collation: A-G4 (G4 blank removed). 52 pp, [1] leaf (errata). Some dampstaining and softening, fore-edges of first dozen leaves wormed causing progress ively diminishing loss to outer blank margins. Blurred type due to shaky presswork on B3v and B4r (next to each other on the forme in half-sheet imposition). Contemporary flexible parchment, parchment thong supports sewn through covers at head and foot (covers stained and soiled). *** first edition of an anonymous pamphlet denouncing monastic abuses and proposing a restructuring of the pastoral economy. The author, himself no doubt a priest, provides vivid insights into the realities of daily religious life in the small towns and villages of France, along with interesting, if unverifiable, estimates of the population sizes of the various clerical ranks and monastic orders. His first complaint is that local curés or parish priests are not provided enough to live on by the Church, forcing them to demand payment from the faithful for sacraments such as Mass and funerals (a scandal that contributes to negative views of the Church). Furthermore, while some parishes are endowed with more chaplains and vicars than they need, other large parishes sorely lack these religious officials, who assist the priests with Mass, Catechism, Confession, and other daily chores. To solve these problems the author proposes a yearly annuity of 500 livres for all curés, and some judicious combining of parishes. The latter move would also serve to reduce the plethora of secular canons (of whom he estimates that there are 16,000 in France), who are a drain on society and on the Church; instead of singing the Divine Office themselves, although that is their central function, they delegate the job to ?"hired priests?" and choir-boys. The ranks of the latter, estimated at 3000 in France, could also use some thinning, for the boys are taught only music and all become Musicians ... whereas, ?"had these little children remained in the secular world they would have contributed to the Arts and Trades?" (p. 11). The author does not question that the faithful are there for the ?"shearing?" by their pastors, but he calls for a more equitable reapportionment of the ?"wool?" (the local priests should be given preferment to canons and monks: they should have ?"the first share in the shearing of the flock, since it is their job to feed it spiritually?": p. 8). His greatest scorn is reserved for the proliferation of new offshoots of the three traditional mendicant monastic orders, the Carmelites, Augustinians, and Jacobins (Dominicans). Created to satisfy the egotistical ambitions of their founders, these new orders were often distinguished from each other by such trivialities as the colors of their habits or the length of their beards (p. 16). Numbering in the thousands, such superfluous friars spend their time collecting alms or simply reading the Divine Office, ?"without singing it?" (another repeated complaint), and they produce each year mere handfuls of preachers and confessors (i.e., useful clergymen). What?'s more they live off the people, or rather off the nobility: ?"everywhere they eat well, and only visit the Noblesse?" (p. 22). The author proposes simplifying the religious orders, and sending these parasitical mendicants ?"back where they came from?" (p. 18), by closing all the establishments founded within the past forty years, and imposing strict size limits on each of the major ?"old?" orders. A list of seemingly objective histories of the various orders, both monastic and mendicant, summarizing their functions and providing estimates of their current populations, is intended to contrast the economy and productivity (in pastoral activity) of the older orders with the exorbitant totals of the alms collected by the new, populous mendicant offshoots, who engage in almost no pastoral care. The last two chapters contain a thorough analysis of the average expenses of a monk, from his daily allotment of wine (or beer, or cider) to costs of maintaining the monastery and of treating the sick; and a biting account of the miserable lives of nuns and of the many forcibly cloistered women, placed in convents by their families. Like their masculine counterparts, new women?'s orders had recently mushrooomed (population estimates are provided), and the author?'s suggested remedy for the ills of female monasticism is the same: close the new houses, and limit the numbers of the old convent communities to between 32 and 60 inhabitants (p. 46). The publication date is based on a passage in the text (p. 15), referring to the founding of the Cordeliers in 1520 as having taken place 140 years ago. The pamphlet was reprinted in 1876. OCLC lists 3 copies, two in France and one in Mannheim. Not in Barbier.

        Rerum memorabilium sive deperditarum. Edited by Heinrich Salmuth

      Frankfurt: 1660. 4to (219 x 173 mm). 2 parts in one, [8], 349, [23]; 313, [17] pp. Engraved title to part I [after Sebastian Furck], double column. Neat small repair to title, small hole in f3 costing a few letters, occasional slight browning intrinsic to paper; but overall fresh condition. Contemporary ivory vellum over pasteboard, title gold lettered on spine, edges red-sprinkled. Provenance: Duke August of Brunswick-Lüneburg, bookplate and printed shelf number 57; Herzog August Bibliothek, Wolfenbüttel, library and withdrawal stamps on verso of title.*** A handsome copy of Panciroli?'s encyclopedic history of ancient and modern arts and technology. First published at Amberg in 1599-1602, Salmuth?'s Latin edition was a ?"surreptitious?" translation, with extensive commentary, of the author's Raccolta di alcune cose più segnalate… which circulated at the time in manuscript. No fewer than four separate issues are recorded by VD-17 under this imprint and date; all reprint Schoenwetter?'s 1631 edition, but only one (39:160841F) bears the original engraved title by Sebastian Furck used in previous editions; the other three issues, including this one, have exact copies of the engraving. Part I treats the arts and techniques of antiquity, including papyrus, roads, statues, libraries, labyrinths, the pyramids, tombs, obelisks, dress and accessories such as the fibula, wine, slavery, Roman writing and writing surfaces, equitation, hunting and food production, and the performing arts, including music, musica muta (pantomime), and stagecraft. Part II, on inventions unknown to the ancients, opens with a long section on the New World, discussing its discovery, the effects of the encounter on the natives (venereal disease tops the list), American crops and products including sassafras, plantains, and many other fruits and herbs, with their uses by the Native Americans. Other sections are devoted to the history of printing in China and Europe (an addendum by Salmuth provides ?"the true history?" of Gutenberg?'s invention, from the evidence contained in the Helmasperger Notarial Instrument), papermaking, sugar, alchemy, porcelain, time-pieces, bells, ciphers and codes, glasses, silk-weaving, tournaments and jousts, and watermills. "Pancirollo?'s work is interesting, not only as giving some notion of the state of knowledge as to the history of invention in his time, but as displaying the attitude of scholars towards the practical arts of the ancients" (Ferguson). VD 17 12:650784G; Ferguson, Books of Secrets, II, pp. 33 & 58; Sabin 58412. Other editions: Brunet, IV, 339; Cicognara 1745; Bigmore & Wyman II:112-13 (discussing the printing scene in lower border of engraved title).

        Guinea. "Guinea

      Africa: Amsterdam Schenk, Petri & Valk Gerardi c1700. Copper engraved map of Guinea, West Africa after Janssonius from Schenk and Valk's " Atlas Contractus." Original full wash colour; verso blank. The map after Jansonnius shows the coast of West Africa from Sierra Leone to Gabon, focused upon Guinea and Benin; numerous elephants, lions and monkeys within the land; ships, monsters and compass roses to sea. Decorative title cartouche surmounted by natives and monkeys; 2 black putti bear an elephant tusk above the sea at bottom left corner. Good impression with bright colour; worm track to upper centre fold in blank margin with old paper repair to verso, not entering image. The maps of Schenk and Valk are famous for their full wash colour , however often the pigments, particularly in the greens deteriorated leading to browning and eventually could cause the paper to crack, for this reason it is unusual to see such bright original colour. SCHENCK, Pieter 1660-1718/9 Dutch mapmaker and publisher. Born in Elberfeld, Germany in 1660. Moved to Amsterdam in 1683 where he became a pupil of Gerard Valck, later in 1687 he married Agatha Valck, sister of his associate., thus uniting two great families. In 1686 he is noted in a privilege granted to Petrus Schenck and Gerardus Valck for the printing & sale of their prints. The Valck and Schenk families where active as print sellers, publishers and printers of maps, atlases and architectural drawings as well globes. They accquired plates from the stock of Johannes Janssonius and also of Visscher reissuing several maps of Janssonius' "Atlas Novus "from 1683-94 and published an Atlas titled" Nova totius Geographia" in 1702. The best known of the joint Pieter Schenk & Gerard Valck publications were the second edition of Andreas Cellarius's " Celestial Atlas Harmonia Macrocosmica'" 1708 and an edition of Jan Jansson's "Novus Atlas" entitled the "Atlas Anglois" published in London by David Mortier in 1715. Pieter Schenck the Elder's earliest cartographic productions were a number of maps after Nicolas Sanson published in a composite Atlas, "Atlas Contractus or Atlas Minor" c.1696. He also published a further composite Atlas, "Atlantis sylloge compendiosa," c.1702. Other works included his famous Atlas of one hundred town views," Hecatompolis" [1702];" Le Theatre de Mars "[1706]; and the "Schouwburg van der Oorlog" [1706].

        DELL’HISTORIA DELLA COMPAGNIA DI GIESU. L’ASIA. IL GIAPPONE. LA CINA. L’INGHILTERRA. L’ITALIA

      Roma, nella Stamperia d?'Ignazio de?' Lazzeri/ Stamperia del Varese, 1660-1673. In-4 (mm. 330x225), 5 parti in 7 tomi, mz. pergam. con ang. settecentesca, tit. oro su tassello al dorso, tagli rossi. L?'opera è così composta: - "L?'Asia". Parte prima. 3 cc.nn., 663 pp.num., 4 cc.nn. Nel ns. esempl. le prime 3 carte (antiporta, inc. in rame da Bloemaert su dis. di Miele, con figure simboleggianti le nazioni dell?'Asia in atto di mostrare una carta della Cina a S. Francesco Saverio + frontesp. + imprimatur) sono ?"dell?'edizione di Roma,1653?". Il testo è invece una ?"edizione terza, accresciuta della Missione al Mogor e della vita e morte del P. Ridolfo Aquaviva. Composta dal medesimo autore. Roma, Stamperia del Varese, 1667?". "Mancano 2 cc." (pp. 139/142), qui riprodotte su carta antica. Cfr. Gamba,1773: ?"l?'edizione di Roma, 1667, viene preferita all?'ediz. orig. del 1653 perchè contiene anche, dopo gli VIII libri della Storia, la "Missione del Gran Mogor" che manca nella prima?". - "Il Giappone". Seconda parte dell?'Asia. Roma, Stamp. de?' Lazzeri, 1660. "Edizione originale" in 2 tomi: 2 cc.nn., 839 pp.num.; 508 pp.num., 8 cc.nn. Questa ?"seconda parte?" è divisa in cinque libri: l?'Imperio di Nobunanga - di Taicosama - di Daisusama / di Xongunsama - di Toxongun. (Conforme all?'esempl. della Biblioteca Nazionale Centrale di Firenze è priva di antiporta, citata solo dal Cat. Piantanida). La p. 581 porta un antico resturo per ang. inf. mancante (non di t.) - "La Cina". Parte terza dell?'Asia. Roma, Stamp. del Varese, 1663. "Edizione originale" in 2 tomi: 4 cc.nn., 792 pp.num.; (2),793-1152 pp.num., 4 cc.nn. L?'Autore fa la storia delle Missioni nella Cina, nella Concincina e nel Tonchino, fornendo una miniera di notizie di carattere socio-politico-religioso, con importanti approfondimenti sul buddismo, taoismo ed animismo Hindu. - "L?'Inghilterra". Parte dell?'Europa. Roma, Stamp. Varese,1667. "Edizione originale": 4 cc.nn., 620 pp.num. "Mancano 5 cc. finali": avviso al lettore e Indice, qui riprodotte su carta antica. - "L?'Italia". Prima parte dell?'Europa. Roma, presso il Varese, 1673. "Edizione originale": 2 cc.nn., 534 pp.num., 4 cc.nn., 1 c.b. Cfr. De Backer ?"Bibliogr. des écrivains de la Compagnie de Jésu?",II, p. 54: ?"Cest dans la première partie de l?'Asie que Bartoli traite amplement la vie de S. François Xavier?" - Brunet,I,683: ?"Ces ouvrages ont de l?'intéret et se trouvent difficilement?" - Cat. Piantanida,IV,4905 - Gamba,1773 - Diz. Biografico Italiani,VI, p. 563-70. Il letterato ferrarese Daniello Bartoli (1608-1685) entrò a 15 anni nella Compagnia di Gesù, di cui nel 1650 fu nominato storiografo. Le sue opere sono numerosissime ma la più importante è la "Istoria della Compagnia.." (1653-73), divisa in sezioni (Asia, Giappone, Cina, Europa: Inghilterra, Italia), una delle più articolate e complete storiografie del Seicento, sui continenti e nazioni dove i Gesuiti avevano operato. Basandosi sulle dirette informazioni di questi intorno alle condizioni dei vari paesi (riti, usanze, costumi, leggende, cronache, fatti politici e notizie geografiche), trascende i limiti di una storia particolare delle vicende della Compagnia, per diventare una specie di storia universale. Purtroppo questa titanica impresa rimarrà incompiuta. Di non facile reperibilità l?'opera completa, in edizione originale come la ns., ad eccezione della prima parte che è però accresciuta di una importante relazione (mancante alla I ediz.) Con uniformi arross. più o meno lievi, qualche fiorit. e alone, ma complessivam. un discreto esemplare. P.a.r.

        A Treatise of Gavelkind, Both Name and Thing. Shewing the True

      1660. Historic Study of Gavelkind Somner, William [1598-1669]. A Treatise of Gavelkind, Both Name and Thing. Shewing the True Etymologie and Derivation of the One, the Nature, Antiquity, and Original of the Other. With Sundry Emergent Observations, Both Pleasant and Profitable to be Known of Kenting-Men and Others, Especially Such as Are Studious, Either of the Ancient Custome, Or the Common Law of This Kingdome. By (A Well-Wisher to Both). London: Printed by R. and W. Leybourn, 1660. [xxiv], 216 [8] pp. Quarto (7" x 5-1/2"). Nineteenth-century three-quarter calf over marbled boards, raised bands, gilt fillets and lettering piece to spine, endpapers renewed. Light rubbing to boards, some wear to extremities, joints just starting at ends, front hinge cracked but secure, rear hinge starting, title page partially detached but secure. Armorial bookplate to front pastedown, woodcut head-pieces, tail-pieces and decorated initials. Light toning to text, occasional light foxing. An attractive copy overall. * First edition, second issue. Gavelkind is a form of land tenure unique to Kent (and its environs) in which land descends equally to the decedent's sons. It was common during the Saxon era, but was gradually supplanted by primogeniture after 1066. Produced during the first wave of modern English legal scholarship, Somner's pioneering work was the first study of gavelkind, and one of the first important studies of early English law. Philological in orientation, it is a history of gavelkind and an analysis of its forms. Texts of significant documents are included. He also goes beyond his subject in one section to discuss the law of succession to chattels. Somner, a pupil of Causubon, was an ecclesiastical lawyer and historian of Anglo-Saxon law and literature who is best known for his pioneering Saxon-Latin-English dictionary (1659).
