        Delle antichità e guerre Giudaiche diviso in vintisette libri

      Appresso li Milochi, 1661. In-8° ( 222 x 160 mm) pp. [30], 268; 264; [2], 332 [2b] con testalini e capilettera xilografici, legatura in piena pergamena floscia coeva, titoli manoscritti al dorso. Con copiosi indici all'inizio del volume. Al primo frontespizio antica firma di appartenenza, il cui inchiostro ha corroso piccola parte della pagina senza perdita di testo; circa 30 carte presentano dei piccoli tarli marginali che raramente toccano il testo. Piccole e abili riparazioni alla legatura. Per il resto buon esemplare. Sono raccolte in questa edizione seicentesca, le due opere più importanti di Giuseppe Flavio: Delle Antichità e delle Guerre Giudaiche divise in 3 parti. La prima parte, divisa in 10 libri, "...tratta della creatione del mondo fino alla Guerra di Sennacherib". Nella seconda parte, divisa in 10 libri, troviamo "del tornar che tenea li Giudei in Gierusalem fino alla discordia fra Giudei e Filadelfi". Nella terza ed ultima parte, divisa in 7 libri, si tratta in fine "delle Guerre che hebbero gli Hebrei con Romani". Opera tradotta in italiano per Pietro Lauro Modonese, "aggiontovi di nuovo le sue tavole, per ordine à ciaschedun libro". E' questa l'opera dove (libro 18°, cap.6) troviamo il cosiddetto Testimonium flavianum, ovvero un breve passo che menziona la predicazione e la morte di Gesù, confermando sostanzialmente il resoconto dei Vangeli. Benché questo passo sia ora considerato da alcuni storici, tra cui E. Schürer e H. Chadwick, in tutto o in parte, un'interpolazione cristiana, esso garantì in ogni caso la conservazione del testo greco di Giuseppe da parte della Chiesa cristiana. Flavio Giuseppe (Gerusalemme, 37 d. C.- Roma, 100 d.C.) fu storico romano di origine ebraica. Fu governatore militare della Galilea per le forze ribelli durante la prima guerra giudaica del 66, ma si consegnò ben presto ai Romani dopo aver constatato la loro forza e superiorità. Trascorse il resto della sua vita a Roma, scrivendo opere di carattere filo-romano ma con interessanti notizie sulla storia degli ebrei. I suoi scritti sono estremamente importanti, essendo la fonte principale di informazioni riguardanti la Giudea del I° secolo.

        The BANNER Of LOVE, under which the Royal Army is Preserved, and Safely Conducted.  Being a Clear and Perfect Way Out of Wars & Contentions; with A Short Testimony unto the VVay [sic] of Peace. Given forth for the Edification and Comfort of all that Truly fear God. Written by the hand of One who bears Good Will to all Men, William Smith

      London: Printed for Robert Wilson, at the sign of the Black Spread-Eagle and Wind-Mill, in Martins Le Grand, 1661. 1st Edition (Smith II, p. 605; Wing S4288). Self-wrappers. Now housed in an archival mylar sleeve. Edgewear & soiling to outer wrappers. Age-toning. Very Good.. 23, [1 (blank)] pp. 4to: A - B^4 C^2. 6-7/8" x 5-1/2" "William Smith was born in Besthorpe, Nottinghamshire, where he lived for most of his life. Little is known of his parentage and background except that he was ‘a man of good esteem in his country, and educated after the manner of the better sort of yeomens' sons’ (‘Several testimonies’). He served for several years as chief constable of his hundred and became an Independent pastor before joining the Quakers in 1658. Smith suffered frequent periods of imprisonment, during which time he penned many of his large output of tracts, which number well over fifty. ... Smith was arrested, along with many others, in March 1661 for being at a meeting at Worcester, and was kept in prison for some time for refusing the oath of allegiance. He wrote at least five of his books at this time [of which this is one, per Smith, the Friends' bibliographer] and others were completed while in Nottingham gaol, where he was confined on many occasions between 1661 and 1665. In 1663 he was imprisoned for non-payment of tithes and gives an account of his incarceration in The Standing Truth (1663). Of interest are a number of catechisms written in the 1660s which were reprinted later in the decade, including A New Primmer (1663) and A New Catechism (1664), the latter dealing with central Quaker religious tenets such as the notion of perfection, and the nature of the inner light and its relation to the incarnate Christ. In 1663, during the time of persecution, Smith produced Liberty of Conscience, in which he again urged Charles II to keep his promise of liberty of conscience, going on to stress the peaceable nature of Quakerism. In the 1670s Smith went on to write a few more tracts, such as The Baptists Sophistry Discovered (1672–3), a defence of Quaker tenets, and his collected works were published in 1675 as Balm from Gilead, at the front of which are many testimonies from contemporaries, written after his death. Ellis Hookes, recording clerk of the society, wrote the epistle dedicatory, in which he suggests that Smith's work ‘shall speak forth his praise to generations’, for he was possessed of ‘a spirit of true wisdom and understanding’." [ODNB] Smith publications now quite scarce in the trade.

      [No place, no publisher], 1661. - 4to (188 x 145 mm). 19, (3) pp. With a very large folding plate illustrating the curious fossil (490 x 425 mm), engraved by Johann Melchior Schindler of Luzern, the plate with two mended tears; a very good copy in contemporary marbled wrappers. Only edition of a very rare description of a curious and wonderful fossil which was discovered on the 26th of August 1660 in the mountains near Uri in the region of Schwensburg in Switzerland; the fossil showed in its centre an image of the Virgin and Child. Although the author it at great pains to refute the notion that the image could have been added by human hand, it is very likely that this was a planted hoax fossil very much in the mould of the 'Lying Stones' of Beringer which appeared sixty-five years later in Würzburg. In 1725 Johann Adam Beringer became the victim of a famous hoax whereby two of his colleagues at the University of Würzburg planted a series of carved limestones in the shape of lizards, frogs, spider etc. and had them 'discovered' by the hapless Beringer who published his finds, Lithographiae Wirceburgensis Specimen in 1726. For a short time these curious lime stones took pride of place in Beringer's mineral and fossil cabinet. Although the fakes were fantastical in nature Beringer took them at face value and declared them 'capricious fabrications of God'. The author of the present pamphlet comes to very much the same conclusion, but in his defence one should say that scientific inquiry was less advanced in 1661 than in 1725. Not found in OCLC, COPAC or KVK. Not in VD17. Swiss libraries locate four copies: Lucerne, Zurich, St. Gallen and Beromunster.

      Amsterdam: Elzevir, 1659-1661. A fine copy of van Schooten's important second edition of the Geometria, Descartes's magnum opus (DSB), and one of the key texts in the history of mathematics. Descartes' "application of modern algebraic arithmetic to ancient geometry created the analytical geometry which was the basis of the post-Euclidean development of that science" (PMM). It "rendered possible the later achievements of seventeenth-century mathematical physics" (M. B. Hall, Nature and nature's laws (1970), p. 91).

This edition served as the basic textbook for the generation that, in the last quarter of the century, took the lead in introducing differential and integral calculus" (Jahnke). Newton, in particular learnt his Descartes from this edition: "There can be no doubt that Newton read the Géométrie in Schooten's second Latin edition" (Whiteside, Papers I, p. 7, n17). Newton's own heavily annotated copy of this edition is held in Cambridge University Library (NQ.16.203) The Géométrie first appeared (in French) as an appendix to Descartes' Discours de la Méthode (1637). Frans van Schooten (1615-60) first saw the Géométrie at Leiden, as Descartes had come there to supervise the printing of the Discours. Van Schooten published a Latin translation in 1649, adding his own extensive commentary. "The great success of Schooten's edition led him to prepare a second, much enlarged one in two volumes (1659-1661), which became the standard mathematical work of the period... In the second edition Schooten not only greatly expanded his commentary, but also added new material including an example of Fermat's extreme value and tangent method and a peculiar procedure for determining the center of gravity of parabolic segments. Since Fermat was not mentioned in the latter connection, it is likely that Schooten came upon the procedure independently, for he usually cited his sources very conscientiously. "In the first edition (1649) Schooten inserted Debeaune's rather insignificant Notae breves to the Géomérie. The commentary of the second edition contained valuable contributions by Huygens dealing with the intersections of a parabola with a circle and certain corollaries, as well as on an improved method of constructing tangents to the conchoid. Schooten also included longer contributions by his students: Jan Hudde's studies on equations and the rule of extreme values and Hendrik van Heuraet's rectification method. "Volume II of the second edition of the Geometria (1661) commences with a reprinting of Schooten's introductory lectures [Principia matheseos vniversalis, sev Introductio ad geometriæ methodvm Renati Des Cartes]. This material is followed by Debeaune's work on the limits of roots of equations [De aequationum natura, constitutione, & limitibus opuscula duo] and then by de Witt's excellent tract on conic sections [Elementa curvarum linearum]. The volume concludes with a paper by Schooten's younger half brother Pieter on the algebraic discussion of Descartes' data [Tractatus de concinnandis demonstrationibus geometricis ex calculo algebraïco]. This edition shows the great effort Schooten devoted to the training of his students and to the dissemination of their findings" (DSB, under Schooten). F.

      Rome, typis Sacrae Congregationis de Propaganda Fide, 1661. - Large 4to. (2), 60 pp., final blank leaf. Near-contemporary blue wrappers. Extremely rare first edition of this valuable Persian grammar printed in Rome on the presses of the "Propaganda Fide". The third work of this kind, preceded only by those of Louis de Dieu (Leiden 1639) and of Greaves (London 1649). Willems notes that G. B. Raimondi, as early as 1614, produced a grammar in Rome for the use of missionaries which remained virtually unknown in the west, but this existed only in manuscript. The grammars of Greaves and of the present author were both "largely based on De Dieu" (Smitskamp). - Ignazio di Ges

Schooten also included longer contributions by his students: Jan Hudde's studies on equations and the rule of extreme values and Hendrik van Heuraet's rectification method. "Volume II of the second edition of the Geometria (1661) commences with a reprinting of Schooten's introductory lectures [Principia matheseos vniversalis, sev Introductio ad geometriæ methodvm Renati Des Cartes]. This material is followed by Debeaune's work on the limits of roots of equations [De aequationum natura, constitutione, & limitibus opuscula duo] and then by de Witt's excellent tract on conic sections [Elementa curvarum linearum]. The volume concludes with a paper by Schooten's younger half brother Pieter on the algebraic discussion of Descartes' data [Tractatus de concinnandis demonstrationibus geometricis ex calculo algebraïco]. This edition shows the great effort Schooten devoted to the training of his students and to the dissemination of their findings" (DSB, under Schooten). F.

        Pascaarte vande vaste Cust en Eylanden van Westindien, Als mede de Virginis en Nieu-Nederland, van C. Droge tot C. Cod.

      1661 - Amsterdam, c.1661. Original colour. Sheet 435 x 540mm. Narrow top margin, with minor restoration at top edge. A rare and decorative sea chart of the West Indies, with the Eastern Seaboard north to Cape Cod, with 'Manhates' marked. This chart was first published in 1661, three years before the British took New York from the Dutch. Johannes and Gilles Van Loon were amongst the many chart makers working in Amsterdam in the wake of the Dutch merchant marine activity around the world. Although the chart derives from one published by Gerritsz of some 30 years earlier this extends further north to include the New England south coast, and also charts the Pacific coast of Central America, off which a Dutch ship is illustrated for the first time in that location. A finely engraved and important chart. KOEMAN: Loon 1, 31; BURDEN: 367, 'uncommon'.

        Atlantis Insula.

      Artist: Mortier Peter ( - 1711 ) Amsterdam; issued in: Amsterdam; date: 1690 1661 - - technic: Copper print; colorit: colored; condition: Very good; size in cm : 39 x 55 - description: map of America - Vita of the artist: "Pieter Mortier (1661?1711) was an 18th-century mapmaker and engraver from the Northern Netherlands. Mortier had a partnership with Johannes Covens I (1697-1774) and founded the map publishing company Covens & Mortier (1721-1866). Mortier, being French himself, had easy access to French cartographers such as De L'Isle, Sanson, Jaillot, de Fer and De Wit. Consequently, much of Mortier's business was built upon leveraging the sophisticated Dutch printing establishment to issue embellished high quality editions of previously contemporary French maps. In the greater context of global cartography, this was a significant advantage as most Dutch map publishes had, at this point, fallen into the miasma of reprinting their own outdated works. By contrast, the cartographers of France were producing the most accurate and up to date charts anywhere. Mortier's cartographic work culminated in the magnificent nautical atlas, Le Neptune Francois. Upon Pierre's death in 1711 this business was inherited by his widow. In 1721 his son Cornelius Mortier took over the day to day operation of the firm. Cornelius partnered with his brother-in-law Jean Covens to form one of history's great cartographic partnerships - Covens and Mortier - which continued to publish maps and atlases until about 1866.

Ou sont contenuës quantité de choses memorables, qui servent à l'éclaircissement de celles qui se sont passées en France & au Pays-bas, depuis le commencement des troubles furvenus pour la Religion, jusques àl'an 1591. Small quarto (190 x 144 mm). Early 18th-century English speckled calf, decorative gilt spine, red morocco label, red speckled edges. 2 folding genealogical tables; Elsevir's device on title page. Head of spine chipped, front joint split but sound, corners a little worn, one or two slight scrapes or abrasions. A very good copy. First edition of the first significant - and conspicuously scarce - biography of the "Huguenot paladin" François de La Noue (1531-1591), one of the great Protestant captains of the 16th-century Wars of Religion, described by the distinguished American historian John Lothrop Motley as "not only one of the most experienced soldiers, but one of the most accomplished writers of his age" (Dutch Republic, III p. 480). At the siege of Fontenay in 1570 his left arm was shattered by a bullet and a "mechanic" fitted an iron limb that earned him the sobriquet of "Bras de fer" or "Iron arm". He was a correspondent of Sir Philip Sidney and acknowledged by Montaigne in the Essais "for his goodness, gentleness of manner and scrupulous courtesy. He is an important figure with regard to his political and religious affiliations as well as with regard to his Discours politiques et militaires (1587)" (Dorothea B. Heitsch, Practising Reform in Montaigne's Essais, 2000, p. 134). The author, Moïse Amyraut (1596-1664), was one of the leading French Protestant theologians of his day, who numbered William Penn among his many students. Provenance: armorial Elden Hall bookplate of Augustus, Viscount Keppel (1725?1786), naval officer and politician: "a sailor from the age of 10, Keppel served actively throughout the Seven Years' War (1756?63). In 1762 he served under Admiral Sir George Pocock in the British expedition that took Havana, and he received £25,000 in prize money as a result. He became a rear admiral in 1762 and vice admiral in 1770" (Encyclopaedia Britannica online). ODNB describes him as an "outstanding" naval officer, "especially in combined operations". 20th century bookplate of Robert J. Hayhurst, Lancashire retail chemist and bibliophile, whose main library of naval history was complemented by a subsidiary collection of eighteenth-century literature in well-preserved contemporary bindings. Decidedly uncommon commercially and thinly represented institutionally: Copac cites 10 copies in British and Irish institutional libraries (we have also located a copy at the Royal Collection); OCLC locates no copies outside of European libraries. An attractive copy with an appealing provenance.

Provenienz: Zwei der größten US-amerikanischen Bibliophilen waren die Vorbesitzer. 1) Aus dem Bibliothek von Robert Hoe III, mit dessen goldgeprägtem Exlibris verso fliegendem Vorsatz. R. Hoe (1839-1909) war äußerst erfolgreicher Fabrikant von Druckmaschinen (das Exlibris zeigt eine) und einer der größten Bibliophilen seiner Zeit als solcher war er Mitbegründer und 1. Präsident des Grolier Club, New York seine Bibliothek war ebenso legendär (14837 Nummern) wie ihr Katalog (zur Versteigerung von 1911 4 Teile in 8 Bänden). 2) Vermutlich auf dieser Versteigerung erwarb Cortlandt Field Bishop das Exemplar sein goldgeprägtes Leder-Exlibris befindet sich unterhalb desjenigen von Hoe. Bishop (1870-1935), ein reicher Amerikaner, war begeisterter Flugpionier und Büchersammler seine Sammlung mit kostbar gebundenen Exemplaren, darunter vielen französischen, gelangte 1938 zur Versteigerung. (Auf dem zweiten fliegenden Vorsatz befindet sich in Bleistift der alte handschriftliche Eintrag "Robert Hoe", möglicherweise von dessen eigener Hand). Der Meistereinband vorliegenden Exemplars stammt von Joseph Thouvenin (winziger goldgeprägter Signaturstempel am Fuß des Rückens), unklar dabei ob vom Älteren (Wirkungszeit 1813-34) oder Jüngeren (1822-44) die Werkstatt Thouvenin zählte ihrerzeit neben denen des René Simier und des Jean-Georges Burgold zu Frankreichs bedeutendsten und wurde zuletzt 2006 im Musée Condé de Chantilly umfänglich präsentiert durch Thouvenins Rückgriff auf den "Kathedralenstil" und den "Fächerstil" füherer Jahrhunderte wird er allgemein als der Begründer des "style historiciste" angesehen, wobei hier ein hervorragendes und typisches Beispiel seiner Arbeit (in vorzüglicher Erhaltung) vorliegt.
