        A TREATISE OF THE SIBYLS,

      London, printed by T(homas) R(oycroft) for the author, 1661.. so highly celebrated, as well by the antient heathens, as the holy fathers of the church; giving an accompt of the names, and number of the Sibyls, of their qualities, the form and matter of their verses; as also of the books now extant under their names, and the errours crept into Christian religion, from the impostures contained therein, particularly, concerning the state of the just, and unjust after death. ... Englished by J. Davies. FIRST ENGLISH EDITION, 1661. Folio, 285 x 185 mm, 11¼ x 7¼ inches, pages: (4), 293, (7), head-pieces and decorated initials to chapter headings, bound in full contemporary calf, blind-tooled border to covers, rebacked in lighter leather, gilt rules and original gilt lettered label to spine, new endpapers. Covers slightly marked, small scrape to leather on lower cover, engraved armorial bookplate preserved on front pastedown (Thomas Fuller M.D. (1634-1734) physician and preacher who published a compilation of proverbs entitled Gnomologia), 1 page has small pale ink stain, just affecting 1 word, 1 small corner tip torn off, otherwise text clean and binding tight and firm. A very good copy. DAVID BLONDEL (1591-1655), was a French Protestant clergyman, historian and classical scholar. In 1650 he succeeded G. J. Vossius in the professorship of history at Amsterdam. His works were very numerous; in some of them he showed a remarkable critical faculty, as in his dissertation on Pope Joan (1647, 1657), in which he came to the conclusion, now universally accepted, that the whole story is a mere myth. Considerable Protestant indignation was excited against him on account of this book. His work on the Sibyls of classical times was first published in French in 1649.

        The East front of Kensington Palace, with part of the Great Lawn / Façade Orientale du Palais de Kensington, avec une partie du Grand Gazone

      London: Robert Sayer and John Bowles & Son, [no date]. Hand-coloured engraving, printed on laid paper backed with a 20th-century archival sheet. Very good condition apart from some light soiling and a 5/8" tear along the bottom edge of a larger skillfully repaired tear that runs through the right side of the image and spans the height of the sheet. 13 3/4 x 19 5/8 inches. 18 3/4 x 24 1/8 inches. 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 left side of this beautiful print is one of the 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&#39;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.

        THE HORN EXALTED OR ROOME FOR CUCKOLDS

      London, printed for J. Cadwel, 1661.. Being a treatise concerning the reason and original of the word Cuckold, and why such are said to wear horns. 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, 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&#39;s mistake, pagination irregular but text collated and guaranteed complete, bound in early full leather, blind rules to covers, gilt rules and small gilt heraldic motif to spine, gilt lettered morocco label. Binding worn, a few tiny chips to covers and small chip to leather at lower corner of upper cover, 25 mm (1¼ inch) missing from head of spine, tiny chip and pinhole to tail of upper hinge, front inner paper hinge cracked, small note on front endpaper, rear free endpaper missing, 2 lines written in Latin at top of colophon page. Binding tight and firm. A good copy. 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 &#145;the general verge of the people to merryment&#146;, the author expresses the hope that &#145;this piece of drollery&#146; on the subject of cuckoldry might prove &#145;acceptable&#146; 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.

        The Vanity of Dogmatizing: Or Confidence in Opinions Manifested in a Discourse Of The Shortness and Uncertainty Of Our Knowledge And its Causes; With some Reflections on Peripateticism And An Apology for Philosophy. [BOUND WITH] Lux Orientalis, Or An Enquiry into the Opinion of the Eastern Sages, Concerning the Preexistence of Souls. Being a Key to unlock the Grand Mysteries of Providence, In relation to mans sin and misery

      London: Henry Everden -- Cambridge & Oxford, 1661-1662. First editions. leather_bound. Sympathetic modern full brown calf decorated in blind, red leather spine label printed in gilt. Fine./No Dust Jacket. 16 x 10.5 cm. VANITY [A-S8] & LUX ORIENTALIS [A-M8, N7]. The author, a self-styled English Skeptic and apologist for the Royal Society (supporting the Society&#39;s experimental method as religious in nature because it revealed the workings of God) defended the reality of witchcraft and ghosts and the preexistence of the soul; thereby, according to some initiated psychical research. "Vanity" attacked scholasticism and religious persecution as a plea for religious toleration, the scientific method and freedom of thought. "Lux Orientalis, chiefly a reproduction of the theory held by Hume and Cudworth (Cambridge Platonists) as to the prior existence of souls, a doctrine which he held to be all the more defensible in that it appeared never to have been formally condemned by any Christian church. Glanvill thought the world cannot be deduced from reason alone, defending the belief in witchcraft in his "Sadducismus Triumphatus," published 1681. Some early pencil notations and signatures front and back endpapers chipped at fore-edges, modest text toning, title page printed in red and black.

        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. 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.Berlin, 2233; Fowler, 77; not in Tooley; Rijksmuseum catalogue, III, 246.

Lipsius, Johan-Ericus Hahnius, 1663. 14ff. 4to. [19.8 x 15.5]. Marbled paper over thin pine boards with some cracking, and a worm hole in the back continuing through the Major text. Lightly foxed throughout, with repaired tear to title page of Epistolica Disseratio. Major pamphlet browned. Annotations on inside covers, and owner inscriptions dated 1694 and 1699 by Andreas Smissaert, a Franciscan medical candidate in Brussels; Saint Hyacinth College and Seminary library stamp. Extremely rare group of anatomical pamphlets in first Latin edition by Lodewijk de Bils, a nobleman from Flanders, who advertised a method of turning bodies into transparent teaching tools preserved and embalmed in a wax-like substance. The sammelband includes his treatises on the gall-bladder (Epistolica Dissertatio) and on the dissection of a pair of siamese twins (Specimina Anatomica), as well as a letter (penned under another name) to his major detractor, Thomas Bartholinus, (Epistola Apologetica). The final work, Omnibus verae Anatome studiosis, refers to the specimen museum Bils planned to erect in Rotterdam using these methods, and the particular glands and veins he intends to display. The author published his method selectively as a form of investment prospectus: he hoped to raise money by subscription with a goal of twenty thousand pounds. Should he be successful, he promised not only to provide the details of this treatment to his investors, but also to embalm numerous specimens for the museum in the Rotterdam anatomy theater. "Investors above 25 guilders would have been offered a written description of the method of preparation and could also be trained in person if they chose to come to Rotterdam" (Margócsy). Bils did not himself read Latin, and as the Epistola Apologetica pamphlet suggests, his theories were often discredited. However, the fact that his works were translated from his native Dutch suggests that he did indeed create a demand and a somewhat lasting scholarly public for his innovative investigations. The fact that this particular volume contains only the Latin editions, and is annotated by a medical student some years after de Bils&#39; death, reinforces this notion. As Daniel Margócsy has shown, the rage for anatomical preparates was only beginning in the Netherlands, and would be fed by the efforts of Frederik Ruysch, among others. De Bils&#39; pamphlets were originally published in Dutch, generally the year before the Latin. Bound with the present sammelband is a contemporary anatomical text by Johannis Major, discussing several other 17th C authorities such as Johann Georg Schenck.All pamphlets at NLM; BL has the only comparable sammelband.* Dániel Margócsy "Advertising Cadavers in the Republic of Letters: Anatomical Publications in Early Modern Netherlands," British Journal for the History of Science, (forthcoming).

To which is added the Gentlemans Exercise or, An exquisite practise, as well for drawing all manner of Beasts, as for making Colours, to be used in Painting, Limming, &c. The Third Impression much inlarged, especially in the Art of Blazonry, by a very good Hand. Small quarto (183 × 140 mm).

Front joint restored, some leaves a little frayed at edges, scattered worming in gutter towards end, still a good copy. Third edition, first published in 1622. The Compleat Gentleman "occupies a significant place in the history of courtesy literature. Its immediate inspiration was Peacham&#39;s conviction, arising from his continental tour, that the education of young English gentlemen was markedly inferior to that afforded to European gentry &#133; The Complete Gentleman offers advice over a wide range of topics with humour and sagacity &#133; Several chapters have become classic statements, like that &#39;Of poetry&#39; which was to be frequently quoted as a summary of contemporary views. The learning displayed here offers ample justification for Peacham&#39;s claim &#39;By profession I am a Scholler&#39; (Graphice, 1612, sig. A2v)" (ODNB). Peacham died in or after 1644.

A very good copy. DAVID BLONDEL (1591-1655), was a French Protestant clergyman, historian and classical scholar. In 1650 he succeeded G. J. Vossius in the professorship of history at Amsterdam. His works were very numerous; in some of them he showed a remarkable critical faculty, as in his dissertation on Pope Joan (1647, 1657), in which he came to the conclusion, now universally accepted, that the whole story is a mere myth. Considerable Protestant indignation was excited against him on account of this book. His work on the Sibyls of classical times was first published in French in 1649.

        An historical & geographical description of the Great country & River of the Amazones in America... with a Mapp of the River, and of its Provinces, being that place which Sr Walter Rawleigh intended to conquer and plant, when he made his Voyage to Guiana

      England is recommended to take possession of the Amazon. First English edition of one of the rarest works on the Amazon. 1661. London. John Starkey. In 8vo (162 mm x 103 mm). 2 [blank] + 15 ff. + 153 + 3 ff. + 2 [blank]. Recent and elegant half green morocco gilt, spine lettered in gilt, no traces of use. Very fresh, map restored with tiny loss of printed surface in the lower left corner, light spotting, unidentified contemporary notes of first and last blanks, a fine copy. First English edition, translated from the French by William Hamilton ?first Paris 1656. Illustrated with a folding map entitled ?Magni Amazoni Fluvii in America Meridionali nova delineate? of north South America, focusing on the Brazilian Amazon region and River. Sabin says the work includes ?Several chapters... devoted to descriptions of the aborigines of the valley of the Amazon?; in addition there are topographical descriptions of the various regions, mentioning potential products suitable for commerce. There is evidence to suggest that the work is ostensibly a translation from Acuña´s Nuevo Descubrimiento del gran Rio de las Amazonas (Madrid, 1641). Of this latter, only a few copies are known since it was suppressed by order of the King, probably due to the fact that the relation by Acuña mentioned that the Amazon River was navigable from Quito to the Atlantic. ?The value of Pagan´s work is shown in his dedication to Cardinal Mazarin, in which he urges him to take possession of the Amazon and establish several colonies... The map drawn by Pagan is of great importance as a proof of the French ambitions in the Amazon regions? (Borba de Moraes). In this English translation, William Hamilton (the translator), urges the King of England to take possession of Brazil. The work is one of the most important sources of information about the Amazon River and North Brazil. Pagan advocated the conquest of the Amazon by France, and in the dedicatory epistle of the present edition the translator suggests that England should attempt the same. JCBL says ?...Pagan, Comte de Merveilles... was a distinguished soldier and military engineer whose blindness compelled him to drop the sword for the pen.?

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 a guy 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.

      Ulm: Johann Gorlini,, 1661. omnium asterismorum continens schemata, nova methodo delineata, aereis laminis expressa. Folio (327 × 230 mm). Contemporary vellum over stiff boards, dark green morocco spine label at head. Engraved title, 51 double-page plates of the constellations mounted on stubs. Ownership inscription of G. Witchell to front pastedown. Spine neatly repaired at head, some marginal browning, overall a very good copy. Bayer&#39;s was the first star atlas based on Tycho Brahe&#39;s Astronomiae instauratae mechanica, and the first astronomical work to be conceived as a true atlas, namely a collection of maps rather than symbolic pictures. Bayer&#39;s atlas added 12 new constellations, in the southern sky, to the 48 of Ptolemy. Another major innovation, although partially anticipated by Piccolomini a few years early, was Bayer&#39;s assignment of a Greek letter to each star in order of magnitude. The Bayer designation identifies a specific star by a Greek letter, followed by the genitive form of its parent constellation&#39;s Latin name, e.g. Alpha Centauri. This brightness-based nomenclature gained general acceptance after the publication of this edition and is still in use today. The engraved title-page shows the title flanked by the figure of Atlas and Hercules, incorporating a view of Augsburg where the book had first been published in 1605. With the ownership inscription of the English mathematician George Witchell ((1728&#150;1785), dated 29 May 1781, and a few minor notations in his hand. Witchell published a map of the passage of the moon&#39;s shadow over England during the eclipse of 1 April 1764, and in the same year the board of longitude engaged him to compute the difference in longitude between the Royal Naval Academy at Portsmouth and Nevil Maskelyne&#39;s observatory in Barbados. His paper on the duration of the eclipses of Jupiter&#39;s satellites, published in the Philosophical Transactions of 1767, led to his election as fellow of the Royal Society in July that year, a few months after his appointment as head mathematical master of the Royal Naval Academy.

        Delle antichità e guerre Giudaiche diviso in vintisette libri.

      Venetia, Appresso li Milochi, 1661. 1661 In 8°, pagg. (16), 268; 264; (1), 332 con testalini e capilettera xilografici, legatura in piena pergamena floscia coeva, titoli manoscritti al dorso. Con copiosi indici all'inizio del volume. 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. 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. Al primo frontespizio antica firma di appartenenza, il cui inchiostro ha corroso piccola parte della pagina senza perdita di testo 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. Non comune edizione.
