Alles Nach gebräuchlichem Hof-Cantzley und Handels-Stylo zusammen getragen auffs neu übersehen und mit allem Fleiß corrigirt, von Etlichen Liebhabern der Teutschen Sprache

      Nürnberg: 1661. 8vo (155 x 92 mm). Collation: ):(8 2):(8 3):(8; Aa-Zz Aaa-Zzz8 Aaaa-Cccc8 (Cccc8 blank). [32], 16; ?"751?" [i.e., 753], [29] pp., one blank leaf. Additional engraved title (on first leaf of first quire), 5 engraved plates, woodcut diagram of a stylus in text (p. 416). A good copy; inkstains in quire Gg, binding soiled Contemporary vellum, ms. title on backstrip. Provenance: early ?coded inscription on front free endpaper (+ERO+WERO+OPE25); Rohrhalden (Rottenburg), Pauline Hermits, inscription on engraved title dated 1714; Harrison Gray Otis, 19th-century bookplate. *** Second edition or issue of ?"Part 2?" of Harsdörffer?'s popular Teutsche Secretarius. Ostensibly a Briefsteller or guide to letter-writing, Harsdörffer?'s vast work contains a wealth of information on 17th-century German mores, social relations, gender roles, superstitions, politics, history and literature. It includes commercial briefs and letters to and from individuals of various social stations and/or official positions, a section devoted to praise of and letters to women (some in rhyme), letters for ceremonies (weddings, funerals, etc.) and for events necessitating epistolary repair (e.g., an apology for one?'s drunkenness), a section on the German language, and a final part containing examples of ?"philosophical?" letters, each a polished essay on a different topic, including (inter alia) chastity, crying, hand gestures, laughter, servility, trickery, poison, and virtues and vices of men and animals. Four of the five plates show sign language for deaf-mutes (108 different signs); the fifth shows a supposedly Catalonian Missgeburt, a multi-headed and -armed satyr. This book is a bibliographical puzzle. There were two separately published parts, one titled Der Teutsche Secretarius, published in 1655, 1656 and 1661 (and later editions), and the other, described as Part 2, titled as above, issued in 1659, 1661 and in later editions, but there seems to be no agreement as to the respective contents or collations of the editions or the parts. VD-17, which lists several issues for each of the 1661 parts, Dünnhaupt, and the catalogue descriptions reproduced by OCLC generally give the following pagination for the 1661 editions: Part 1: [2], 751, [30] p., [5] engraved plates; and Part 2: [30], 16, [6], 742, [12] pp., 1 engr. plate. However, exceptions abound: for example, the Faber du Faur copy of Part 1 is described as having ?"1 leaf, 76, [6], 742, [12] pages,?" and VD17 3:301940T, also Part 1 with the 1661 title, also has the text in 742 pages but a different number of preliminary leaves: [16] leaves, 16 pages, [3] leaves, 742 pages, [6], [1] leaves.?" In our copy the pagination of the preliminary leaves seems to match Part 2, while that of the text matches Part 1. There were furthermore several typesettings of each edition, part, or ?"pagination group?": several compositors may have set type more or less simultaneously, so that copies contain different combinations of sheets. To compound the confusion, the two parts are very similarly arranged and typographically composed. Possibly the printers disposed of two or more different versions of all or parts of Harsdörffer?'s best-selling text, which were composed and recomposed and somewhat arbitrarily conjoined with the quires containing the title-page and preliminaries. This copy and the many variant settings of the various editions are maddeningly revealing of print-shop practices in seventeenth-century Germany, which produced books no less bibliographically complex than their more intensively studied English counterparts. Cf. Goedeke III:110, 21; Dünnhaupt. III: 2021, 100.II.2; Faber du Faur II:513a - but not matching any of their collations.

        Le jardinier royal, qui enseigne la manière de planter, cultiver

      1661. GOBELIN, Abbé. Le Jardinier Royal, qui enseigne la manière de planter, cultiver, & dresser toutes sortes d'arbres. Avec une briefve méthode pour bien greffer tous fruicts à noyau, ensemble le moyen de faire pépinières, & eslever des arbres pour espaliers, contr' espaliers, buissons, & toutes sortes d'autres arbres fruictiers. [12], 308, [4] pp. 24mo., 132 x 80 mm, bound in contemporary French mottled calf, spine gilt. Paris: Chez Charles de Sercy et Jean Guignard, 1661. |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition of this rare garden treatise published during the time of Molière. This is the only known work by the Abbé Gobelin (the name may have been used pseudonymously). The publishers, Charles de Sercy and Jean Guignard, are known to have issued works by Molière himself. The present work features a dedication by the printers to "Monseigneur le Procureur General, Ministre d'Estat, & Sur-Intendant des Finances." This was none other than Nicolas Fouquet (1615-1680), one of Mazarin's most loyal and wealthiest supporters (Fouquet's wealth even surpassed the Cardinal's). In late 1661, Louis XIV had Fouquet arrested on false charges; the trial lasted three years, and Fouquet spent the rest of his life imprisoned in the fortress of Pignerol. It would appear that Fouquet's fall from grace did nothing to improve the sales, and subsequent survival, of this little gardening book. Features practical gardening and husbandry as was then known, including movement of the sun, remedies against the snails, caterpillars, wasps and ants, the means of harvesting fruit, the planting of the hedges and bushes, making seedbeds, the varieties of trees, preparing soil, planting trees and much more. Headcap repaired; overall an excellent copy of a rare book. No copy appearing at auction as per ABPC. PROVENANCE: seventeenth-century owner's inscription on title page: "Ex libris P.A.A. Beles." Barbier II, 982. Vente Baron Pichon, no. 191. Not in Hunt.

        Plate 82, Vue de vieux Chateau de St. Germain en Laye

      Paris: late 18th century - This superb hand-colored engraving, Plate 82, Vue de vieux Chateau de St. Germain en Laye, from the late 18th century measures 19.75&#148; x 26.75&#148; and is in mint condition. Illustrated in this engraving is a view of the entrance to Chateau St. Germain in Laye, a northern suburb in France. The chateau was the birth site of King Louis XIV and his principal residence from 1661 to 1681. This engraving shows many colorfully dressed noblemen and women in the grounds surrounding the chateau, all lively and interacting. Using perspective to create a dynamic engraving, the artist creates visual planes in an attempt to make the scene more three dimensional and similar one's own vision. During the mid to late 18th century, the trend amongst European artists, printmakers and publishers, was to visually record their own country's architectural treasures, and the natural beauty of their gardens. Motivated by national pride, artists and printmakers began to publish views of their most-admired estates and grounds. In addition to being a visual record of the countryside, they were meant to encourage public recognition of national treasures. These prints were meant to be purchased by the English and foreign tourists whom desired a memento of their travels. Louis XIV (1638-1715), the Sun King of France, had grown up during a civil war between rival factions of aristocrats, known as the Fronde, and wanted a site where he could control the French government by absolute rule. Louis settled on the royal hunting lodge at Versailles , which had been acquired by Louis XIII in 1632, and over the following decades expanded it into the largest palace and grounds in the world. It was Louis XIV's hope to create a center for the royal court at Versailles . Beginning in 1669, the architect, Louis Le Vau (1612-1670), began a detailed renovation of the château. The Château of Versailles, outside of Paris , was converted into a spectacular royal palace in a series of four major and distinct building campaigns. By the end of the third building campaign, the Château had taken on most of the appearance that it retains to this day, except for the Royal Chapel in the last decade of the reign. Louis XIV officially moved to Versailles , along with the royal court, on May 6, 1682. Louis had several reasons for creating such a symbol of extravagant opulence and stately grandeur, and for shifting the seat of the monarch. By moving the royal court and the seat of the French government, Louis XIV hoped to gain greater control of the government from the nobility, by requiring that nobles of a certain rank and position spend time each year at Versailles, Louis prevented them from developing their own regional power and kept them from countering his efforts to centralize the French government in an absolute monarchy. Thus, many noblemen had to either to give up all influence, or to depend entirely on the king for grants and subsidies.

        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

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.

All'interno, alcuni errori di numerazione,  numerose illustrazioni o diagrammi a silografia. Rutilio Benincasa  fu astronomo, astrologo, considerato una sorta di stregone del suo tempo. L'opera fu redatta nel 1587 e stampata per la prima volta nel 1593. Il testo ebbe vasta fortuna tanto da meritare numerose riedizioni  fino al Novecento. Dopo la morte dell'autore, l'Almanacco fu aggiornato da altri personaggi, tra cui il più significativo fu proprio Ottavio Beltrano verso la metà del Seicento, dove egli ridistribuì in cinque parti la materia trattata, aggiornò le numerose tavole e le effemeridi calcolate dal Benincasa, ed aggiunse intere sezioni.  Il testo è un vastissimo repertorio di nozioni che riguardano praticamente   tutte le conoscenze scientifiche e le credenze popolari del tempo quali,  le configurazioni della luna in,  le previsioni astrologiche annuali, le tavole sulla struttura del calendario e sulle feste mobili, la cronologia di tutti gli avvenimenti storici più rilevanti,  un trattato di fisiognomica,  nozioni di anatomia e di astrologia medica,  l'influsso degli astri sull'agricoltura,  nozioni di geografia e cosmografia,  un trattato sull'arte della navigazione e sull'orientamento, nozioni di aritmetica e di geometria. Esemplare in discrete condizioni conservative, una  modesta gora circolare lungo poche pagine, alcune fioriture e lievi tracce d'uso generali, assai frequenti per un testo che era notoriamente soggetto a frequente consultazione per la sua vastità di interessi.

        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, colophon leaf is present, pages: (12), 84, (2), 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 borderand 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 locates only 2 copies in U. K. libraries. 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.

        Afbeelding van&#39;t Stadt Huys van Amsterdam

      Amsterdam: Dancker Danckerts, 1661. Folio, with an engraved title-page, a full-page portrait of Campen and 30 engraved plates, mostly double-page, one folding; small marginal tear to one plate well clear of image; contemporary vellum with the arms of Stirling Maxwell stamped in blind on the upper boards (there is also a later family member&#39;s bookplate); covers rather soiled, small chip at the foot of darkened spine, but rather an attractive copy nonetheless. The floor map of Tasman&#39;s discoveries. Oddly enough, this splendid architectural record of the Amsterdam Town Hall is also one of very few early printed records of Tasman&#39;s voyages.Jacob Van Campen began his designs for his masterpiece in 1648: the Town Hall was finally completed in 1665, ten years after Van Campen&#39;s death. His draughtsman, Jacob Vennekool, made the drawings for this book, which were engraved by Dankerts. They include exterior and interior elevations, sections and plans. There is also a magnificent anonymous portrait of Van Campen himself.The building was itself an emblem of the great commercial successes of the Dutch, successes that are specifically celebrated in the rich sculptural decorations. The main pediment, for example, shows the oceans and continents of the world paying tribute to Amsterdam.Tasman&#39;s voyages had been completed in 1644, and two of the engraved plates - a double-page engraving followed by a single-page - depict the wide marble floor of the Burgerzaal, the main room of the Town Hall. This floor, essentially the centre-piece of the whole building, contained the famous marble Tasman map, a world map in two spheres (with a third astronomical sphere) which displayed the results of Tasman&#39;s voyages to Australia, proudly showing the latest achievements of the Dutch VOC. This engraving is the only surviving record of the map, as it was later replaced by a floor of plain marble slabs after it was totally worn off by people walking over it.In 1946 the State Library of New South Wales deliberately echoed the original Dutch idea when the marble floor map in the main vestibule of the building was commissioned: it too records Tasman&#39;s voyages, this time from the Library&#39;s manuscript map of the voyages, the so-called "Bonaparte-Tasman map" that was presented to the Library by the Greek royal family. It is surviving the passing traffic better than its vanished Dutch forebear.

        Examen] Y Pratica [Practica] de Escrivanos, Y Indice de las Provisiones que se Despachan por Ordinarias en el Consejo

      Madrid 1661 - Hardcover. Uncommon early Spanish law book originally printed in 1631. The book is a review and practice for scribes, early officials of the courts, written by the Camara scriviner of "His Majesty." Bound in later marbled boards with leather spine. Gilt partial title and decorations to spine separated by gilt lines. Front and back boards somewhat bowed. Front hinge has pulled away from the text block but the rear board and the interior pages are tight. Inner pages show browning and spotting, some pages more than others, not affecting the legibility of the text or the shoulder notes. Top page edges have been trimmed to fit binding. Some have been cut very close to the text, but it does not appear that any of the text is missing except for loss of chapter headers and the first word of the title page. .Two pages near rear have been torn in the margin along the fore edges, one of which intrudes very slightly into the text. There are also tears to the top fore edge margins of the indices at the end, again not affecting the readibility. Bookplate of noted Baltimore book collector Alfred J. O'Ferrall on front free end paper with ink ownership signature on facing page. Unpaginated. LAW/012910. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Le pavé de la grand' sale des bourgeois. [Amsterdam, Gerard Valk, 1719]. Very large engraved folding plan comprising 1 1/2 sheets (measuring 46 x 83 cm as assembled), engraved by Danckert Danckertsz. and his father after drawings by Jacob Vennekool, including the two hemispheres of the world map and a celestial map of the constellations of the northern hemisphere (each 10 cm in diameter).

      Cf. BAL 533 (1st Dutch ed.); Fowler 77 & 274 (1st Dutch ed.); Berlin Kat. 2235 (1st French ed.). Very large engraved plan showing the extraordinary cartographic mosaic floor of the Burgerzaal of the Amsterdam City Hall, designed by Jacob van Campen, with a celestial map in the centre and the magnificent map of the world in 2 hemispheres on either side. The engraving was first published in 1661, and the map shows Tasman's recent discoveries in Australia and Tasmania, and depicts California as an island. Many discoveries from his second voyage remained otherwise unpublished until the end of the 17th-century. This engraved representation is all that is left of this cartographical work of art. Wear caused by people walking on the mosaic meant it had to be restored about a hundred years later. When in turn this restoration was damaged the two hemispheres were filled in with plain marble slabs without pictorial representation.The drawing of the floor was made by Jacob Vennekool who worked closely with Van Campen, and since his drawings were first published even before the building was completed, they may reflect Van Campen's plan more closely than the finished building itself. They also, of course, show it before the alterations made at various times in later years.Slightly wrinkled in the right margin, one fold reinforced and a few tiny spots, otherwise in very good condition.

[ii], 257, [5] pp. Last page is a blank. Octavo (5-1/2" x 3-1/2"). Contemporary calf with later rebacking and recornering, blind rules to boards, blind fillets along joints, lettering piece and blind fillets to spine, endpapers renewed. Light rubbing to extremities, a few small nicks to board edges, front hinge starting. Light toning to text, a bit of soiling to title page. Tiny early owner initials to title page, interior otherwise clean. Ex-library. Bookplate to front pastedown. An appealing copy. * Written during the reign of Edward IV [1442-1483] and first published around 1481, Littleton&#39;s Tenures is probably the most revered treatise in the history of the common law. Much admired for its learning and style, it is concerned with tenures and other issues relating to real property. This venerable work, which Coke called "the ornament of the Common Law, and the most perfect and absolute work that ever was written in any humane science," is considered a landmark because it renounced the principles of Roman law (and Latin) in favor of guidelines and doctrines drawn from the Year Books and, when necessary, hypothetical cases.

As historian Jonathan Israel writes: &#39;...the real work of discrediting and disposing of the Oracula Sibyllina, Chaldean chronicles, and Orphic hymns, ... seemingly only began, as Diderot noted in 1751, in the 1650s when the Huguenot scholar David Blondel ... published his treatise on the Oracula in Amsterdam.&#39; . Very Good. 1661. First Edition.
