        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. FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST. POSTAGE AT COST.

        Afbeelding van'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's bookplate); covers rather soiled, small chip at the foot of darkened spine, but rather an attractive copy nonetheless. The floor map of Tasman's discoveries. Oddly enough, this splendid architectural record of the Amsterdam Town Hall is also one of very few early printed records of Tasman'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'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'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'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's voyages, this time from the Library'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.

        Littletons Tenures in English, Lately Perused and Amended

      1661. The "Ornament of the Common Law" Littleton, Sir Thomas [1402-1481]. Littletons Tenures in English, Lately Perused and Amended. London: Printed for the Company of Stationers, 1661. [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'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. OCLC locates two copies in law libraries (Harvard, Library of Congress). Holdsworth, A History of English Law II:573. English Short-Title Catalogue R213709.

As historian Jonathan Israel writes: '...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.' .

In using the projection developed by Mercator, Dudley improved upon the theory of navigating by the “Great Circle,” the shortest distance between two points on a globe. It would be the eighteenth century before cartographers used the projection consistently, and during the great Dutch period of cartography not one atlas was produced using it. Although Dell’ Arcano del Mare was published in Italy, it is considered the first printed English nautical atlas. Dudley’s monumental work was the only exception to the total dominance of sea atlas production by the Dutch for nearly a century. Arguably the most sumptuous marine atlas ever produced, it contained no less than 146 sea charts, and dozens of illustrations and working diagrams. It was superior to any previous work in that the charts illustrated the whole world, the first time any outside of Europe had been included. Dell’ Arcano del Mare was also the first atlas to show the prevailing winds, currents and magnetic deviation. One of the great marine atlases of all time, the work was magnificently engraved, an encyclopedia of 17th-century knowledge regarding the seas. Robert Dudley was one of the more colorful characters in the history of mapmaking. He was the illegitimate son of the Earl of Leicester, and in 1605 he abducted a beautiful heiress and fled England. He entered the service of the Duke of Tuscany as an engineer and naval commander, and he spent the rest of his life in Italy. In 1646 in Florence he published Dell’ Arcano del Mare, which besides the many beautifully calligraphic charts included detailed texts on navigation, shipbuilding and naval warfare, the whole written in Italian by Dudley himself. The atlas was twelve years in the making, and the main innovation lay in its conception of a world atlas of charts, both general ocean charts and detailed surveys, covering all the rival spheres of European do-minion: Spanish, English and Dutch. Dudley’s Dell’ Arcano del Mare is a monument in marine cartography, representing the culmination of his passion for the waters of the world and all that they had to offer.

        Prosp. Du Palais de Duc d’Orleans. Wiesolchez auff der Seitten im Garten anzufeben (Gardens at the Palace of the Duke d’ Orleans, Saint-Cloud)

      Frankfurt 1661 - Mathias Merian the Elder (1593-1650) was one of the most prominent members of the leading print publishing family of 17th-century Germany, known throughout Europe for his engravings of cityscapes and landscapes, his scientific books, and his editions of the noted series of travel books, the “Great Voyages”. Born and trained in Basel, Switzerland in the early 1600’s he began studying drawing, engraving and etching in Zurich with engraver Friedrich Meyer. Merian joined the Frankfurt publishing house of Johann Theodor de Bry in 1616 and, the following year, he married de Bry’s daughter Maria Magdalena. Merian gained his greatest acclaim as head of the family publishing house following the death of his father-in-law in 1623. He rapidly and almost single-handedly built up the house to become one of the most important in Europe, etching most of the plates himself until about 1645, when he increasingly relied upon the help of a growing staff of assistants and pupils, among them Wenceslaus Hollar, Rudolf and Conrad Meyer of Zurich, and his sons Matthaus and Casper. “Topographia Galliae” was published from 1655 to 1661 in partnership with Martin Zeiller who wrote the text. “Topographia Galliae” was one of the largest and most comprehensive publishing’s of the Gaul region of its time with engravings of major European cities and historically important locations, each expertly engraved by Merian and his sons. In total, “Topographia Galliae” is comprised of 13 parts in four volumes, with nine engraved additional titles and 321 individually detailed engravings with maps and views of cities, towns, castles, fortresses and monasteries. This single page engraving from “Topographia Galliae” titled “Prosp. Du Palais de Duc d’Orleans. Wiesolchez auff der Seitten im Garten anzufeben” measures 11.75" x 11.75" and is in good condition with evidence of previous repair to the central crease and light wrinkling along the central crease. This engraving is finely detailed and shows a view of the gardens at the Palace of the Duke d'Orleans, Saint Cloud. The Duke of Orleans, Phillip I, was the younger brother to King Louis XIV. The famous cascade in the garden was designed by Antoine Le Pautre and constructed between 1664 and 1665. This engraving shows a wide-angle view of the chateau and the gardens being enjoyed by visitors. The landscape is seen to extend far beyond the trees adding to the expansive chateau.

        De Centro Gravitatis Solidorum Libri Tres...in hac nostra editione, servata ad unguem Auctoris mente, multò correctiores

      Woodcut printer's device on title & numerous woodcut diagrams in the text. 4 p.l., 260 pp. 4to, cont. limp boards (a little soiled, unimportant marginal dampstaining). Bologna: Heirs of Ducci, 1661. Second edition, combining the De Centro Gravitatis Solidorum and the Quadratura parabola; this edition contains important authorial additions and corrections. These two texts had a considerable influence on Galileo and his studies on motion. Valerio (1552-1618), who had studied under Clavius, met Galileo in Pisa in 1590 and influenced him to renew his studies on the centers of gravity. In 1609 they began an extensive correspondence on problems of motion and mathematics. It was during this time that Galileo was preparing his treatise on motion and mechanics which later became the Discorsi of 1638. "In December 1612, having completed his Sunspot Letters, Galileo considered having the Linceans print his work on centers of gravity of paraboloids, probably in the form of a letter to Luca Valerio. Ensuing correspondence shows that he sent this to Cesi, who in discussing the matter with Valerio found that he was then revising his own book on a similar subject, published in 1603-4. Galileo accordingly gracefully withdrew his work from publication at this time, for which Valerio expressed his gratitude. In fact Valerio did not reprint his book, and Galileo eventually placed his investigations of centers of gravity in an appendix to his own last book in 1638."­Drake, Galileo at Work, p. 202. Valerio's influence on Galileo, through his correspondence and these two books, was enormous, and he was singled out for praise in the Discorsi; where he is described as "our greatest geometer, the New Archimedes of our age." This was high praise indeed, for Valerio was critical of Galileo's Copernicanism and had been expelled from the Accademia dei Lincei in 1616 for his views. "Valerio's De centro gravitatis consists of the application of Archimedean methods to the determination of the volumes and centers of gravity of the various solids of rotation and their segments...Among the mathematicians who studied him and spoke highly of him were Cavalieri, Torricelli, and J. C. de la Faille. He also had a direct influence on Guldin, Gregorius Saint Vincent, and Tacquet."­D.S.B., XIII, pp. 560-61. Fine copy, preserved in a calf-backed box. Ex Bibliotheca Mechanica. M.E.

        The South front of Kensington Palace, as seen from the Verges of the great Walk / Façade Méridionale du Palais de Kensington, vue la grande allée

      Robert Sayer and John Bowles & Son [no date], London - A very fine image of Kensington Palace and its expansive grounds. Erected in 1661 for the Earl of Nottingham, Kensington Palace became the royal residence of William III in 1689. Over the years, it underwent various renovations by architects such as Nicholas Hawksmoor and Sir Christopher Wren. The palace was surrounded by an extensive park, the vast grounds of which are pictured here, that was expanded and laid out by the celebrated garden designers Henry Wise and Charles Bridgeman. Visible on the far right side of this beautiful print is one of the chief formal tree-lined avenues that were characteristic of the park. John Tinney was both an engraver and "a print seller, and carried on business at the Golden Lion in Fleet Street, London, where all his own works were published. His mezzotint plates include portraits of Lavinia Fenton, after John Ellys; George III, after Joseph Highmore; Chief Baron Parker; and John Wesley; also some fancy subjects after Boucher, Lancret, Rosalba, Correggio, and others. He engraved in line a set of ten views of Hampton Court and Kensington Palace, after Anthony Highmore, and some of Fontainebleau and Versailles, after Jean Rigaud. Some of the plates in Ball's Antiquities of Constantinople , 1729, are also by him. Tinney is now remembered as the master of the distinguished engravers William Woollett, Anthony Walker, and John Browne." ( DNB ) Cf. Dictionary of National Biography. Hand-coloured engraving, printed on laid paper backed with a 20th-century archival sheet. Very good condition apart from some light soiling, a 1/2" tear in the bottom margin, a small loss in the lower right-hand corner, and a few minor water stains in the right margin, one of which is just within the right platemark.

This book has been restored and conserved by David Donahue of Philadelphia. This consisted primarily of rebacking. A detailed Treatment Report from him is included. Custom made titled clamshell case [Fine]. Pages, complete with elaborate engraved extra allegorical title but lacking frontis engraved portrait, losses to front free blank leaf, text with several hundred geometricals worked into the text plus scattered engraved decorations and some textural plates. Text quite solid and clean, brief aging, several leaves folded at fore-edge margin to incorporate engraved designs which extend into margins. Berlin Katalog 589. Riccardi II, 222. Graesse V, 58. Not in Fowler and many other standard references. Quite scarce contemporary publication of Osio's simplified method for the construction of the orders of architecture through angles alone, without arithmetic divisions and without modules. Initially published in Milan in 1641 (of the greatest scarcity). In fact, any early editions are excessively difficult to encounter, for Osio represents a Neanderthal line of architectural reasoning. He was a principal source for the writings of Guarini, but his approach ultimately proved to be unproductive as architecture developed according to strict measured drawings based upon mathematics and other sciences. Imagine the Hoover Dam built in the method of the pyramids, with someone standing on an adjacent hill and giving instructions based on what he saw instead of relying on the physics of poured concrete, knowledge of the pressure of water, and an understanding of the geological features.

        Discoveries of the Day Dawning to the Jewes. Whereby they may know in what state they shall inherit the riches and glory of Promise.

      printed for Thomas Simmons, at the sign of the Bull and Mouth near Aldersgate, London 1661 - 14 pages (page 2 is blank verso of title page; page 14 is blank verso of last leaf). Signed: Johan, in Hebrew characters. 4°. 15, [1] p.; 19 cm. References: Wing (2nd ed.); P1615 Scans available upon request. Jews Conversion to Christianity Society of Friends. Signatures: A-B4. PERROT, JOHN (d. 1671?), Quaker sectary, born in Ireland, was possibly descended, though not legitimately, from Sir John Perrot [q. v.], lord-deputy "of Ireland. It is hardly likely that he was the John Perrot fined 2,000/. in the Star-chamber on 27 Jan. 1637, and arraigned before the court of high commission on 14 and 21 Nov. 1639 (Cal. State Papers, Dom. 1636-7 p. 398, 1639-40 pp. 271, 277). Before 1656 Perrot joined the Quakers, and was preaching in Limerick. The next year he started, with the full authority of the Quaker body and at its expense, with one John Love, also an Irishman, on a mission to Italy, avowedly to convert the pope. Perrot passed through Lyons, and on 12 Aug. 1657 he was at Leghorn. There he wrote a treatise concerning the Jews, and both travellers were examined by the inquisition and dismissed. In September, diverging from their original route, they reached Athens, whence Perrot wrote an' Address to the People called Baptists in Ireland.' A manuscript copy is in the library of Devonshire House. He also wrote an epistle to the Greeks from ' Egripos,' that is the island of Negroponte (now called Eubcea). Returning to Venice, he interviewed the doge in his palace, and presented him with books and an address, afterwards printed. A work dated from the Lazaretto in Venice indicates either that he had fallen ill or was in prison. On arriving in Rome, probably in 1658, Perrot and Love commenced preaching against the Romish church, and were arrested. Love suffered the tortures of the inquisition and died under them. Perrot, whose zeal knew no bounds, was more appropriately sent to a madhouse, where he was allowed some liberty and wrote numerous books, addresses, and epistles. These he was suffered to send to England to be printed, and many of them appeared before his release; His detention excited much sympathy in England. Samuel Fisher (1605-1655) [q.v.], John Stubbs, and other Friends went to Rome in 1660 to procure his freedom. Two other Friends, Charles Bayley and Jane Stokes, also unsuccessfully attempted it, Bayley being imprisoned at Bordeaux on the way out. Some account of his experiences he contributed to Perrot's 'Narrative,' 1661. In May 1661 Perrot was released; but on his return to London he was received with some coldness. He was accused of extravagant behaviour while abroad. Fox and others condemned the papers issued by him from Rome, one of which propounded that the removal of the hat during prayer in public was a formal superstition, incompatible with the spiritual religion professed by Quakers. This notion gained ground rapidly, and was adopted for a time by Thomas Ell wood [q.v.] and Benjamin Furly [q. v.] ; but Fox at once attacked 'it in a tract issued in 1661 (Journal, ed. 1765, p. 332). Perrot was unconvinced, although many of his friends soon forsook him. He was indefatigable in preaching his opinions in various parts of England or Ireland, and attracted large audiences. He was arrested, with Luke Howard (1621-1699) [q. v.], at a meeting at Canterbury on 28 Aug. 1661, and again at the Bull and Mouth, Aldersgate Street, on a Sunday in June 1662, when he was brought before Sir Richard Browne (d. 1669) [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
