        THE HORN EXALTED OR ROOME FOR CUCKOLDS. Being a treatise concerning the reason and original of the word Cuckold, and why such are said to wear horns.

      London, printed for J. Cadwel, 1661. Very proper for these times, when men are butting, and pushing, and goring, and horning one another. Also an appendix concerning women and jealousie. FIRST EDITION 1661, small 8vo, approximately 165 x 100 mm, 6½ x 4 inches, LACKING FRONTISPIECE, SUPPLIED IN MODERN FACSIMILE, and lacking a blank leaf at beginning and end, and the leaf following the title page, most likely the Dedication, pages: (12), 1 - 84, (2) imprimatur leaf, signatures: *1 - *8 ( - *1, *3), A - E8, F4 ( - F4), catchword on *7v is a printer's mistake, pagination irregular but text collated and guaranteed complete, bound in modern full calf, blind ruled border and blind decorative panelling to covers, raised bands and blind rules to spine, gilt lettered red morocco label, new endpapers. 2 lines written in Latin at top of colophon page, occasional minor mark to text or margins. A good copy with facsimile frontispiece as noted. ESTC R209943 Wing attributes authorship to George Rogers (1618 - 1697) a medical man who trained in Padua and then went into practice in London, eventually becoming the president of the College of Physicians. However the ODNB does not list this amongst his works. In the Preface to this serio - comic work, published to coincide with the celebrations for the restoration of the monarchy (and in an act of remarkable prescience about what would notoriously prove to be one of the major preoccupations of that new anti - puritan era), seeing 'the general verge of the people to merryment', the author expresses the hope that 'this piece of drollery' on the subject of cuckoldry might prove 'acceptable' to his readers. The first part runs to page 35, The Appendix on Women and Jealousy is slightly larger occupying page 37 to 84. Wing (2nd ed.) R1802. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE. FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST. POSTAGE AT COST.

        REGARDING COMMERCIAL ISSUES IN THE TOWN OF MECO

      Madrid 1661 - 310 x 210 mm. (12 1/4 x 8 1/4"). The main document of 20 unnumbered vellum leaves. Single column, 28 lines in two careful professional italic hands. Contemporary limp vellum, ink titling on upper cover, remnants of green silk ties, with a further outer limp vellum wrapper made from a contemporaneous document similar to this one. Elaborately illustrated opening page with floral frame in red and black enclosing royal crest and the words "In el nombre de la Sanctissima Trinidad" ("In the name of the Most Holy Trinity") in red and black, with a stylized Janus face of leaves forming the "I." ACCOMPANIED BY THE LEAD SEAL OF PHILLIP IV AND WITH A FOUR-LEAF PAPER DOCUMENT SIGNED ("YO EL REY") BY PHILIP V and dated March of 1734 laid in at rear. Wrapper somewhat faded, worn, and stained, vertical crease to front cover, text with occasional minor smudges or stains to margin, otherwise in excellent condition--fresh, generally clean, and well preserved. The seal a bit rubbed and with edges not as sharp as they once were, but, on the whole, in an extremely attractive state. Written out by professional scribes whose careful work reflects the significant contents and the royal source, this is a commercial document of considerable length--and, as such, it is something rarely seen in the marketplace. Spanish documents from this period that become available for sale are almost all formulaic carta executoria manuscripts, so-called "grants of nobility" (but, in fact, verifications of nobility, obtained, by those with the means to do so, to prove that one's lineage has no trace of peasant, Jewish, or Moorish blood and that one should therefore by law be exempted from taxation). By contrast, the present document grants certain rights and privileges and deals with taxation and other regulations related to commerce in and around the agricultural town of Meco, located between Madrid and Guadalajara. In addition to this extensive document on vellum with many signatures (but not signed by Philip IV), there is included here a second, seven-page, document on paper. Also relating to Meco, this was written out 73 years later and does contain a royal signature, that of Philip V, the great-grandson of Philip IV. In addition--and perhaps most important--this grouping contains the lead seal of Philip IV, approximately 90 mm. in diameter and as heavy as the weightiness of a royal pronoucement suggests it should be. There is a braided cord extending from the bottom of the vellum document, so it is possible that the seal had previously been attached, but it is just as likely that someone has simply added it to related material. Excluding the carta executoria, Spanish royal documents from this period are not common in the marketplace, especially substantial items of central concern to community well-being like this one, and lead seals are quite rare (we were able to trace just a single such item, attached to a carta executoria issued by Philip V).

        Lamiato 'l Ajam. Carmen Tograi. Una cum versione Latina, & notis, opera E. Pocockii. Oxford, Henry Hall for Richard Davis, 1661.

      1661. 8vo. 2 parts in 1 vol. (22), 233, (89) pp. (4), 170, (2) pp. With full-page engraving. Modern vellum. The first Arabic-Latin edition of the great poem "Lamiyat al-´Agam" by Hassan ibn ´Ali al-Tugra'i (c. 1061-1121), and one of the first Arabic books ever printed in England: "a complaint over the unfortunate circumstances of his times and over his own lot" (cf. GAL). Contains not only the text with an extensive commentary, but also a complete index of the words appearing in the poem and the apparatus, as well as a second part, an Arabic prosody by Samuel Clarke entitled "Scientia metrica & rhythmica, seu Tractatus de prosodia Arabica" (also issued separately, but here forming part of the Tugrai edition). Edward Pococke (1604-91) was the first scholar of Arabic at Oxford; the Oxford oriental scholar Samuel Clarke (1624-69) also served his University as printer. - Variously browned due to paper. An untrimmed copy. GAL I, S. 247. Lowndes 2692. Schnurrer 197. Brunet V, 875. Ebert 23019.

        Vervarelyke schip-breuk van 't Oost-Indisch jacht Ter Schelling, onder het landt van Bengale; ... beneffens een bondige beschryving der Koningryken van Arrakan, Bengale, Martavan, Tanassery, ... Den vyfden druk doorgaens met platen verciert.Harderwijk, Jan Rampen, 1722. 4to. With 18 woodcut illustrations plus 1 repeat. Modern half vellum.

      Landwehr & V.d. Krogt, VOC 422 note; STCN (1 copy); Tiele, Bibl. note; WorldCat (2 copies, incl. 1 the same). Extremely rare fifth edition, the second illustrated with woodcuts, of a popular account of the story of the East Indiaman Ter Schelling, which was wrecked off the coast of Bengal. The author, a member of the crew, kept a journal of his experiences, and the 18 woodcuts illustrate the crew's adventures both at sea and on land. The ship left Batavia with 85 men and about 28 canons under captain Jacob Jansz. Stroom on 3 September 1661 and came within sight of Bengal on 8 October. They wrecked on a sandbank off shore, however, and had to make rafts to travel further, 32 of them managing to reach an uninhabited island. Van der Heyden describes the crew's desperate hunger, when they were tempted even to eat a worm-filled human corpse. They survived on turtles, snakes, iguana and occasionally rotten buffalo meat. By chance they reached mainland Bengal in the middle of the region's greatest war (1660-1662), so once ashore they were conscripted into the enormous Mogul army to fight against the kingdom of Assam, said to be cannibals. The gruesome massacre of captives by the Nabob is described and illustrated. Following the story of the voyage are descriptions of the kingdoms of Arrakan, Martaban, Tanassery, Bengala and Patan along the coast of the Bay of Bengal from modern Bangladesh to Burma.Though all editions are rare, those with woodcut illustrations aimed at a lower market seems to be the rarest.Slightly browned throughout, a minor dampstain in the inner margin of the foot of the title-page and a tiny dampstain in the lower outer corner throughout. A good copy of a very rare edition of a gripping true-life adventure story.

        Viaggi di Pietro della Valle il pellegrino. Venice, Paolo Baglioni, 1661-1664.

      1661. 12mo. 4 vols. (40), 670 pp. (2) ff. (1 blank), 734, (34) pp., (2) ff. (1 blank), 792, (18) pp. 756, (24) pp. Contemp. limp vellum with ms. spine titles; all edges of vol. 2 sprinkled in red. Early duodecimo reprint edition of Della Valle's complete "Viaggi", published while the first complete edition was still under the press. Della Valle's account is highly sought after as one of the earliest printed sources for the early history of Dibba, the coastal region at the northeastern tip of the United Arab Emirates, today ruled by the Emirates of Fujairah and of Sharjah. - Pietro della Valle (1586-1652) left Venice in 1614 on a pilgrimage to Palestine, proceeding to Baghdad and then into Persia, where he married and sojourned in the court of Shah Abbas. While staying with the Sultan of Bandar Abbas, he "met the son of the ruler of Dibba who was visiting. From this he learned that Dibba had formerly been subject to the kingdom of Hormuz, but was at that time loyal to the Safavids who in 1623 sent troops to Dibba, Khor Fakkan and other ports on the southeast coast of Arabia in order to prepare for a Portuguese counter-attack following their expulsion from Hormuz (Jarun). In fact, the Portuguese under Ruy Freire were so successful that the people of Dibba turned on their Safavid overlords, putting them all to death, whereupon a Portuguese garrison of 50 men was installed at Dibba. More Portuguese forces, however, had to be sent to Dibba in 1627 as a result of an Arab revolt. Curiously, two years later the Portuguese proposed moving part of the Mandaean population of southern Iraq, under pressure from neighbouring Arab tribes, to Dibba" (UAE History: 2000 to 200 years ago - UAEinteract, online). "Della Valle displayed excellent narrative and descriptive skills, powers of acute observation, and a genuinely scholarly breadth of learning. He refused to comment on what he had not witnessed himself or checked against the best authorities" (Gurney). He continued his travels east to the coast of India, Goa and Muscat, and thence back to Aleppo by way of Basra. He reached Rome in 1626, where the original Italian text of his letters written to the Neapolitan physician Mario Schipano was published. Only the first volume, dealing with Turkey, saw print during his lifetime. The two-part volume II on Persia was released in 1658, four years after his death; in 1662 the Turkey volume saw a second edition, and the set was concluded in 1663 with the volume on India. A single-volume English translation of the Indian travels appeared in 1665. - Occasional slight brownstaining, otherwise fine. Röhricht 947, p. 238. Tobler 95. Weber II, 251.

        Les merveilles des Indes orientales ou nouveau traitté des pierres precieuses & perles, contenant leur vraye nature, dureté, couleurs & vertus: chacune placée selon son ordre & degré, suivant la cognoissance des marchands orfévres. Auquel est adjouté une petite table fort exacte, pour connoitre en un instant à quel tiltre les marchands orphevres de Paris, & les autres dans toutes les principalles villes presque de toute l'Europe, travaillent l'or & l'argent. Paris, C. Lambin, 1661.

      1661. 4to. (12), 112 pp. With engr. portrait frontispiece of Anne Marie Louise d'Orleans and numerous pretty woodcut initials and tailpieces. Contemp. richly gilt calf, leading edges and spine gilt (tiny defect to upper spine-end and hinge). Marbled pastedowns. First edition of this rare work on precious stones and pearls found in the East and West Indies, written by a Parisian "marchand orphèvre". Dedicated to "La Grande Mademoiselle" Anne Marie Louise d'Orléans, Duchess of Montpensier and niece of Louis XIII, with her finely engraved portrait by L. Boissevin (which, according to Graesse, is frequently lacking). This "very early, and important treatise on gemstones, gold & silver" (Sinkankas) includes a chapter dedicated exclusively to pearls, a subject with which the author was especially familiar (cf. ibid.), and the Persian Gulf is stated as one of the main locations of pearl fishing: "on pesche les perles en divers endroits du monde. Dans le Golfe Persique, principalement aux environs de l'Isle d'Ormus & Bassora: aupres de Baroyn [i.e., Bahrain], Catiffa, Iuffa, Camaron, & autres lieux de ce Golfe [...]" (p. 74). "The first chapter attempts to reconcile differing views of various writers, as cited by Berquen, on the origin of gemstones and precious metals, with following chapters taking up the principal gemstones, and some minor ones, as diamond, sapphire, topaz, ruby, spinel, emerald, amethyst, aquamarine, hyacinth, opal, chrysolite, iris, vermeille, garnets, carnelian, turquoise, quartz varieties, pearl, coral and amber, and lastly, a chapter on gold and silver [...] Both [the first and the second edition] are rare" (Sinkankas, p. 97f.). - Insignificant waterstain and occasional slight worming, mainly confined to upper margin. A good copy in an elaborately decorated contemporary French binding. Sinkankas 592. Sabin 4957. Brunet VI, 4780. Graesse I, 348. Ferguson II, 295 (note). Cf. Duveen 71 (1669 second ed.).

        Grammatica linguae persicae. Auctore patre fratre Ignatio à Jesu carmelita discalcato missionario, & vicario residentiae Tripolis, & Montis Libani. Rome, typis Sacrae Congregationis de Propaganda Fide, 1661.

      1661. Small 4to. (2), 60 pp. Modern contemporary-style ivory vellum, handwritten title on spine. 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 Gesù (Carlo Leonelli) was a 17th century Italian missionary. He "belonged to the Order of Discalced Carmelites, and preached the Gospel in Turkey, Asia Minor, Armenia, and Persia, where he stayed over a long period. He especially tried to convert to the Catholic faith the so-called sectarians of Saint John (in eastern Mendaï). He returned to Rome in 1650" (cf. Hoefer). An account of his travels was included in the collection of Thevenot. His present small work, though not the work of an orientalist nor indeed a scholar, is still a true grammar based on elements collected during the author's journeys. - Some light foxing and browning as common, slight abrasion on title (vignette very slightly affected), lacks final blank leaf. Old library shelfmark in ink to title. A very good copy. Brunet III, 405. Schwab 863. Smitskamp 310 c.

Trimmed close, affecting a few catchwords and headline. Fresh, attractive copy. Bookplates. Folding calf-back clamshell box. Third edition. First 8 words of title are engraved within a cartouche of dolphins and fish, 10 small copperplate engravings of fish in text, 2 pages (214-215, P3v-P4r) of words and music for "The Angler's Song," the bass voice printed upside down, 3 woodcut initials and head and tail ornaments. Pp. [16], 1-255, [256, blank], [16]. 1 vols. Small 8vo (140 x 88 mm). A superior copy of this Walton, first published in 1653. The first four editions - there were five in his lifetime - remained anonymous. This third is a virtual reprint of the second edition, with an interesting alteration, however, to the final remark of Piscator on p. 255: "And [St. Peter's blessing] upon all that are lovers of Vertue, and all that love to be quiet, and go a fishing. 'Study to be quiet, I Thess. 4.11'". It is also in the introduction to this edition that Walton first used what became his signature phrase, "I have laid aside business, and gone a-fishing." Along with several small textual changes, the John 21.3 quotation has been removed from the title-page and the "C" of "Complete" in the running headlines are now all similar. "The Lawes of Angling" here are added for the first time, printed in gothic type. The third edition was reissued in 1664, the only difference being in the substituton of a new title-page.

Small 8vo, approximately 150 x 90 mm, 5¾ x 3½ inches, FACSIMILE TITLE PAGE, 10 small copperplate engravings of fish in the text, attributed to Pierre Lombart, 2 pages of the words and music to "The Anglers Song" set by Henry Lawes, the second page printed upside down to facilitate part singing, pages: [16], 255, [17], collation A-S8, bound in full brown modern morocco, double ruled gilt border to covers with decorative blind border inside, gilt rules and decoration between raised bands to spine, gilt lettered red morocco label, new endpapers. Pages very lightly-age browned, some margins slightly trimmed, just shaving running title a couple of times, occasional light brown mark in lower margins, small piece torn from 1 top corner with loss of page number (no doubt because wrongly numbered 78 instead of 87), final page of index browned in the margins. A very good clean copy (lacking original title page as noted). "A Short Discourse by way of Post-script, touching the Lawes of Angling" printed in black letter begins the final unpaginated section on S1r, followed by the Contents Table and the Index. Except for a few changes the third edition is identical with the second edition. The commendatory verses by Alexander Brome are omitted, and the chapter on the "Lawes of Angling" is for the first time included. The publisher Marriott transferred some copies of the sheets of the third edition to Simon Gape who provided them with a new title page with his name and dated 1664, but of course otherwise identical to the edition of 1661. Copies of these are scarce and are usually known as the 1664 third edition. As we are lacking the title page we cannot say whether ours is the 1661 third or the Gape third, at all events ours was certainly printed in 1661.

        La Première [seconde] partie des Conférences académiques et oratoires, sur toutes sortes de sujets problématiques, utiles et agréables, accompagnées de leur décision. Où l'on voit l'usage des plus belles maximes de la philosophie et des plus beaux préceptes de l'éloquence. Dédiées à Monseigneur Fouquet Procureur général, Sur-Intendant des Finances et ministre d'Estat. Par I. D. S. escuyer, sieur de Richesource, moderateur de l'Académie.

      A Paris chez l'Autheur 1661-1662 2 parties en 1 vol. in-4 de (26)-597-(1) pp. erreurs de pagination sans manque, veau brun granité, dos orné à nerfs, double filet doré d'encadrement sur les plats, tranches jaspées (reliure de l'époque). Tête de série de la revue fondée par Jean Oudart dit de la Sourdière, seigneur de Richesource (1616-1694). La première partie comprend les conférences 1 à 22, la deuxième les conférences 23 à 44. Vendues séparément dès 1660, les 44 premières conférences furent réunies une première fois en 1661 par leur auteur sous un titre général à l'adresse de Paris, rue de la Huchette, privilège du 20 mars 1661. Cette deuxième édition publiée la même année (privilège du 10 avril 1661) reprend les 44 conférences remaniées avec des changements dans les dédicaces. La publication régulière des séances s'acheva en 1666 et compte 88 conférences. Richesource avait institué ses conférences en 1653 à l'instar de celles que Théophraste Renaudot avait organisées au Bureau d'Adresse de 1633 à 1642. Les discours prononcés dans les séances du lundi furent imprimés mais des contrefaçons induisirent Richesource à prendre un privilège qui lui permit de réunir en recueil les livraisons de l'année écoulée. A partir de la quatrième livraison, le sujet des conférences ultérieures est annoncé. Par la suite seront généralement indiqués les auteurs des questions parmi lesquels Le Tellier, Filleau, de Cailly, Du Bordage, Saint-Gilles, Perrachon, Prioreau, l'abbé de Visé, le chevalier de Saint-Philbert, le vicomte de Montaigu, les marquis de Cany, de Sorgues eet de Magneux. Quelques orateurs parmi lesquels le jeune Fléchier se signalent par la fréquence de leurs interventions. Ainsi différentes questions touchant le plus souvent à la morale sont débattues contradictoirement : la toute première conférence porte su ce thème si la vie civile est préférable à la vie rustique. Bien des motifs apparaissent qui se retrouveront peu d'années après chez La Rochefoucauld, La Fontaine, Molière et La Bruyère. Titre-fontispice répété en tête de la deuxième partie. La collection comprend 88 Conférences dont la publication s'échelonne entre 1660 et 1665. Restauration à la reliure. Galeries de ver marginales sur les trois premières conférences avec perte de quelques lettres. Galeries de ver marginales atteignant le te xte des trois premières conférences. Cioranescu III, 59546 ; Sgard I, 216 : « Document précieux pour l'histoire des mentalités, les Conférences académiques aident surtout à mieux comprendre ce qui constitue pour notre littérature classique son horizon d'attente ».

        Les Oeuvres Diverses De Monsieur De Cyrano Bergerac ., A Paris Chez Antoine De Sommaville MDCLXI

      1661 (1.edition) 1661 - Leder geb. kl. 8° (Einband d. Zt.) (11), 191, 344, (1), 152 p S. mit Titelvignette, Bordüren u. Initialen in Holzschnitt . Contents : Histoire comique.Lettres. Lettres satyriques. Lettres amoureuses. Le pedant ioué (: joue ) , comedie. ( L'édition des oeuvres diverses présente ici est restée inconnue de Tchemerzine.Faisant suite aux Estats et Empires de la Lune parus pour la première fois en 1657, l' Histoire comique des Estats & Empires du Soleil, longtemps méprisé, est reconnu aujourd'hui comme un des textes les plus novateurs et subversifs de son époque, critiquant la monarchie, pronant la République, niant l'immortalité de l' ame, etc. et se rattachant aux idées de Gassendi, Giordano Bruno et Campanella) Cyrano de Bergerac, Savinien de -eigentlich Hector Savinien de Cyrano (geb. 6. März 1619 in Paris - gest. 28. Juli 1655 in Paris) war ein franz. Schriftsteller.Cyrano – wie er in den Literaturgeschichten meistens schlicht heißt – ist heute vor allem als romaneske Dramen- oder Filmfigur ( u.a. verkörpert durch den " russischen " Filmschauspieler Gerard Depardieu ) bekannt. Die eigentliche Bedeutung dieses Autors, der sich in vielen Genres betätigte, liegt jedoch darin, dass er als einer der Erfinder des Science-Fiction-Romans und als ein Vorläufer der Aufklärer des 18. Jahrhunderts gelten kann.Spätestens 1650 begann er den zweiteiligen Roman, der sein Hauptwerk werden sollte, L' autre monde ( Die andere Welt ). Hierin berichtet ein Ich-Erzähler von seiner angeblichen Fahrt zum Mond und zur Sonne und von seinen Erlebnissen und Gesprächen mit deren Bewohnern (z. B. den humoristisch verfremdeten biblischen Figuren des Propheten Elija und des Patriarchen Henoch, die er auf dem Mond antrifft). Hierbei legt Cyrano den Mond- und Sonnenbewohnern philosophische, naturkundliche, religiöse und gesellschaftspolitische Gedanken in den Mund, die zu äußern für einen Franzosen dieser Zeit verboten war.1652 trat er als eine Art Edeldomestik in den Dienst des Herzogs (Duc) und hohen Militärs Louis d ’ Arpajon. Ihm widmete er seine 1654 gedruckte Tragödie La Mort d ’ Agrippine (Der Tod der Agrippina), ein historisches Stück im Stile Pierre Corneilles, in das er religionskritische Tiraden einbaute, die bei der Aufführung Ende 1653 großen Anstoß erregten.1654 ließ er eine Sammelausgabe bis dahin verfasster kleinerer Werke erscheinen, darunter vor allem die in Prosa geschriebene Komödie Le Pedant joue ( Der getäuschte Pedant ), aus dem Moliere für sein vorletztes Stück 1671 , Les fourberies de Scapin ( Scapins Schelmenstreiche ), schöpfte, und die Lettres sur divers sujets, literarische, überwiegend satirische Briefe zu verschiedenen Themen, in denen er sich u. a. eine erstaunlich offene Bibel- und Kirchenkritik erlaubt. Ecken bestossen, Einband berieben sonst guter Zustand) [Attributes: Hard Cover]

San Guglielmo di Malavalle, noto anche come Guglielmo di Aquitania, fu un eremita e contemplativo, i cui insegnamenti, raccolti dal suo discepolo Alberto, che visse con lui il suo ultimo anno di vita, nel Consuetudines e Regula sancti Guillelmi, diedero origine all'Ordine di San Guglielmo.

        Diogene e Alessandro. (Napoli 1615 - Roma 1673)

      1661 - 62. Acquaforte e puntasecca, eseguita fra il 1661 - 62, firmata in lastra in basso entro cartiglio. Mm 452x270. Discreta prova con impressione un po' leggera, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana con scudo, buoni margini. Titolo manoscritto anticamente con inchiostro bruno al margine inferiore. Secondo stato su due. Analogamente al Testa, al Castiglione e al Della Bella, Salvator Rosa sentì l'incisione come il mezzo tecnico più adatto ad esprimere il suo linguaggio espressivo ed infatti insieme agli artisti sopra citati è da considerare protagonista della storia dell'incisione italiana del Seicento. Esponente di una vasta cultura eclettica, i suoi molteplici interessi figurativi avevano come poli il classicismo carraccesco, il naturalismo del Ribera, la pittura romana contemporanea e il mondo antico. Da quest'ultimo in particolare il Rosa sembra trarre spunto per le sue colte composizioni incise che, come già nel Testa, si ricollegano alle tematiche care alla filosofia stoica, glorificando le virtù con allegorie assai complesse e costruite. A questo aspetto va aggiunto anche l'interesse per il mondo esoterico che gli ispirò composizioni negromantiche in pitture. La sua grande abilità tecnica e la padronanza del mezzo incisorio all'acquaforte hanno fatto sì che le stampe di Salvator Rosa venissero apprezzate sin dall'antichità, copiate e ricercate da collezionisti e mercanti.

        ARMONIA DI PACE, E TESORO DI VERO HONORE. OVE ALLA NOBILITÀ S'INSEGNA ONORATO MODO DI COMPORRE LE PACI, SI TRATTA DELLA NOBILTÀ, ET INSIEME DELL'ECCELLENZA DELL'HONORE... COME SUOI CONTRARII SI BIASIMANO E DANNANO L'INFAME VENDETTA, ET L'INFAMISSIMO E TUTTO L'INIQUO DUELLO.

      1661. Opera sul duello apparentemente anonima ed inedita. Una parte dell'originale piatto anteriore in cartone rustico, incollata su una carta di guardia, cita: "Libro di Timaleone Bona..."; sembra fare riferimento a Timaleone Bonafede, erudito seicentesco autore dell'opera Picciolissimo tributo offerto alla Sovrana Regina dell''uniuerso... edita a Padova dal Frambotto nel 1661. Ma di lui non risultano altre opere, né vi è evidenza documentaria alcuna che abbia scritto un trattato sull'onore e i duelli. Nessun riferimento in Levi-Gelli, Bibliografia del duello. Per la datazione del manoscritto, oltre l'analisi della scrittura, appare dirimente l'esame della filigrana, un''ancora sormontata da una stella a sei punte, tipica della produzione italiana seicentesca. Heawood, Watermarks, pag. 63, tav.1. Nell''ampia trattatistica sul duello, quest''opera si inserisce nel filone di netta condanna di tale retaggio medievale di gestione della giustizia, in linea con tutta la giurisprudenza del tempo. Il volume è composto da 25 capitoli, così divisi: I - Che il duello è giudizio iniquo, e quali siano le persone da esso escluse; II - Dell'attore, e del reo; III - De' Padrini; IV - Del giudice, e del processo; V - Della prima conditione, che si considera nelli cartelli;VI - Della seconda conditione de' cartelli; VII - Della terza condizione de' cartelli, VIII - Della Tortura; IX - Della sentenza, e del Duello detto la Macchia; X - Della vendetta; XI - Della deffinitione del Duello; XII - Della differenza del Duello; XIII - Del 2°e 3° fine del Duello; XIV - Dell'honore; XV - Della Nobiltà; XVI - Della Difesa vera dell'honore; XVII - Del quarto, e quinto fine del Duello; XVIII - Delli due ultimi fini del Duello; XIX - Che il Duello in niun caso si può lecitamente volere; XX - Dell'eccellenza della verità in se stessa, e nello rendere l'honore all'offeso, et all'offenditore insieme; XXI - Della forma di comporre la pace, e della sua prima circostanza; XXII - Della 2° circostanza, e conditione della forma del comporre la pace; XXIII - Della 3° circostanza della forma del comporre la pace; XXIV - Dell'ultima circostanza della forma del comporre la pace; XXV - Di una forma rara di comporre paci... Manoscritto cartaceo del sec. XVII, 135 carte numerate (ma 140), in 4° (20,5 x 14,5 cm.), vergato in corsiva a inchiostro nero, con interventi di mano successiva e varianti al testo poste su fascette incollate al margine interno, fori di tarlo restaurati, aloni alle ultime carte, legatura moderna in cartone.

        De Piscibus libri V, et de Cetis lib. unus. Ioannes Cornelius Uterverius..collegit. Marc. Antonius Bernia in lucem restituit.. Bononiae, apud Nicolaum Thebaldinum, 1638, (ma in fine:) Typis Io. Bapt. Ferronij, sumptibus Marci Ant. Berniae, MDCLXI (Bologna 1661)

      Fe, 1661. in - folio, pp. (6, compr. tit. inc., ma privo di un f. bianco), pp. 732 (dopo p. 480 sono inseriti 2 ff. di cui sotto), (28); legatura coeva p. perg. rigida, dorso a nervi con tit. ms., altro tit. calligr. sul taglio infer. Frontespizio inciso entro splendida bordua allegorica con figure e stemma di Francesco Vitelli, arcivescovo di Tessalonica, cui l'opera è dedicata da da parte di Marco Ant. Bernia. Pur essendo una fedele ristampa della precedente edizione del Tebaldini, in questa del 1661 l'editore ha aggiunto 2 ff. tra le pp. 480 e 481 (particolarità non riscontrata nelle bibliografie): il primo (pp. cccclxxxj - cccclxxxij) col testo del ''Libri tertij de Piscibus Auctariolum de inviso antea Pisce Monstroso'' ed il secondo con la raffigurazione silografica del medesimo pesce serpentiforme pescato nelle vicinanze di Napoli. Edizione di notevole pregio (la prima era stata impressa da Giov. Batt. Bellagamba nel 1612 - 13), curata da Ioannes Cornelius Uterverius, corredata di 400 splendide figure in silografia di pesci e cetacei, anche a piena pagina. Opera di grande interesse pure per gli ampi capitoli sulla natura e sulla pesca della balena. «Ce qui est précieux, ce sont ses figures; elles se composent de toutes celles de Gesner, de Rondelet et de Belon et d'un très grand nombre de dessins nouveaux. Placé plus favorablement que Rondelet et Gesner pour recevoir les productions du midi de l'Europe, (Aldrovandi) en recueillit plusieurs qui avaient échappé à ces deux grands naturalistes. Il en reçut aussi des Indes. L'Amérique d'ailleurs et l'intérieur de l'Afrique lui fournirent différentes éspèces qui n'étaient pas encore arrivées en Europe» (Hoefer I, 745). E' uno tra i più preziosi dei 13 volumi di storia naturale redatta dall'Aldrovandi, che costituisce la più significativa raccolta del sapere naturalistico del Rinascimento, ed il più notevole tentativo di descrizione e classificazione zoologica, botanica e mineralogica che sia mai stato fatto dopo Aristotele e prima dei tempi moderni. Figura straordinariamente eclettica, l'Aldrovandi (Bologna 1522 - 1605) fu appassionato collezionista di materiale naturalistico raro e prezioso: si vantava «di non avere mai descritto cosa alcuna senza averla toccata colle proprie mani e senza averne fatto l'anatomia». Bell'esempl. genuino e marginoso.

Original binding’s armorial bookplate of "Henry Peirse of Bedall in Yorkshire Esq" retained in front pastedown. Minor toning and occasional minor foxing. Near fine. First edition in English (issue with Dring imprint), after the original French edition, published as DES SIBYLLES CELEBRÉES. in 1649. An important work of 17th-century scholarship denying the authenticity of the Sibylline oracles and the Catholic practice of prayers for the dead. David Blondel (1591-1655) was a French Calvinist clergyman and professor of history at Amsterdam, later praised by Voltaire, Diderot, and other leading voices of the French Enlightenment. In the present work, Blondel examines the Oracula Sibyllina cited by early Church Fathers as ancient pagan anticipations of Christ and evidence for certain Christian eschatological views. The Oracula comprised twelve to fourteen books believed to record utterances of the Sibyls of ancient Greece, women associated with religious shrines who spoke in frenzied states as channels of the gods. The writings in question began experiencing renewed interest during the mid-16th century, when rediscovered manuscripts were printed for the first time in Basel and Paris. This coincided with Reformation-era controversies on the Catholic doctrine of Purgatory, which the Sibylline Oracles seemed to support. In his investigations, Blondel found strong evidence for the Oracula to be later Christian forgeries, whose acceptance he discusses here as an example of human propensity for error, even among revered early Christian writers.

      Yucheng, Shandong: Luo[ "the good man"], shanren Narrow Folio (33 x 11 cm; 13" x 4.5"). 310 pp.. 1661 This is a popular religious ? Buddhist, but noncanonical ? work, written in classical Chinese. While it evokes and invokes the Buddha, it is the work of a small, populist sect, and is not mainstream Buddhism. The work is printed in the less familiar "fanfold" manner and unsewn rather than in the "Chinese style" that Westerners are most familiar with. It is printed printed from woodblocks, three to a sheet, which are the glued together to form an "accordion style" book. => It features a multipage "frontispiece" of the Buddha and related religious imagery on six preliminary pages. Provenance: The Howell Bible Collection, Pacific School of Religion (properly released). With a note laid in reading: "This is a volume of a Chinese Buddhist sacred book, which has been for two centuries in a Shantung family. The woman who owned it became convinced of its uselessness, & exchanged it for a New Testament & a hymn book. It is now presented to the Pacific Theological Seminary by Rev. Arthur H. Smith, P'ang Chuang, Shantung, China." The Rev. Smith (1845?1932) was a missionary of the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions who spent 54 years as a missionary in China . (We are grateful to Dr. Martin Heijdra of the East Asian Library at Princeton for assisting us in identifying this work.) Covers detached but present; soiled and totally faded and discolored. Tattering and dog-earing of text leaves; many split at the folds or at pasted areas. Far from perfect condition but => complete.

FIRST EDITION 1661, small 8vo, approximately 165 x 100 mm, 6½ x 4 inches, LACKING FRONTISPIECE, SUPPLIED IN MODERN FACSIMILE, and lacking a blank leaf at beginning and end, and the leaf following the title page, most likely the Dedication, pages: (12), 1-84, (2) imprimatur leaf, signatures: *1-*8 (-*1, *3), A-E8, F4 (-F4), catchword on *7v is a printer's mistake, pagination irregular but text collated and guaranteed complete, bound in modern full calf, blind ruled border and blind decorative panelling to covers, raised bands and blind rules to spine, gilt lettered red morocco label, new endpapers. 2 lines written in Latin at top of colophon page, occasional minor mark to text or margins. A good copy with facsimile frontispiece as noted. ESTC R209943 Wing attributes authorship to George Rogers (1618-1697) a medical man who trained in Padua and then went into practice in London, eventually becoming the president of the College of Physicians. However the ODNB does not list this amongst his works. In the Preface to this serio-comic work, published to coincide with the celebrations for the restoration of the monarchy (and in an act of remarkable prescience about what would notoriously prove to be one of the major preoccupations of that new anti-puritan era), seeing ?the general verge of the people to merryment?, the author expresses the hope that ?this piece of drollery? on the subject of cuckoldry might prove ?acceptable? to his readers. The first part runs to page 35, The Appendix on Women and Jealousy is slightly larger occupying page 37 to 84. Wing (2nd ed.) R1802. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE. FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST. POSTAGE AT COST.
