Ignatius a Jesus.
Rome, typis Sacrae Congregationis de Propaganda Fide, 1661. Large 4to. (2), 60 pp., final blank leaf. Near-contemporary blue wrappers. Extremely rare first edition of this valuable Persian grammar printed in Rome on the presses of the "Propaganda Fide". The third work of this kind, preceded only by those of Louis de Dieu (Leiden 1639) and of Greaves (London 1649). Willems notes that G. B. Raimondi, as early as 1614, produced a grammar in Rome for the use of missionaries which remained virtually unknown in the west, but this existed only in manuscript. The grammars of Greaves and of the present author were both "largely based on De Dieu" (Smitskamp). - Ignazio di 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 browning as common, otherwise a very good, untrimmed, wide-margined copy as issued. Brunet III, 405. Schwab 863. Smitskamp 310 c. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

DESCARTES, René.
Amsterdam: Elzevir, 1659-1661. A fine copy of van Schooten's important second edition of the Geometria, Descartes's magnum opus (DSB), and one of the key texts in the history of mathematics. Descartes' "application of modern algebraic arithmetic to ancient geometry created the analytical geometry which was the basis of the post-Euclidean development of that science" (PMM). It "rendered possible the later achievements of seventeenth-century mathematical physics" (M. B. Hall, Nature and nature's laws (1970), p. 91). "The mathematical community learned about the wealth of Descartes's new ideas through the works of van Schooten ... In the second edition the commentaries were enlarged, and van Schooten included the work by his students van Heuraet, Hudde, Huygens and de Witt. This edition served as the basic textbook for the generation that, in the last quarter of the century, took the lead in introducing differential and integral calculus" (Jahnke). Newton, in particular learnt his Descartes from this edition: "There can be no doubt that Newton read the Géométrie in Schooten's second Latin edition" (Whiteside, Papers I, p. 7, n17). Newton's own heavily annotated copy of this edition is held in Cambridge University Library (NQ.16.203) The Géométrie first appeared (in French) as an appendix to Descartes' Discours de la Méthode (1637). Frans van Schooten (1615-60) first saw the Géométrie at Leiden, as Descartes had come there to supervise the printing of the Discours. Van Schooten published a Latin translation in 1649, adding his own extensive commentary. "The great success of S … [Click Below for Full Description]

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

Nuremberg: P. Fürsten, [1661]. First edition and a lovely copy.

A section is devoted to a discussion of planetary movement with references to Sacro Bosco, Copernicus, and Apianus."-Roberts & Trent, Bibliotheca Mechanica, p. 180. Apparently little is known about the author who is described on the title-page as a "Batterey-Meister." Very fine copy.

Das Book of Kells enthält so manche Miniatur des frühen Mittelalters, die zu den schönsten zählt, die je geschaffen wurde. Bis auf zwei sind alle Seiten dieser Handschrift mit einer fast unbeschreiblichen Fülle symbolträchtiger und mystischer Malerei ausgeschmückt. Die Handschrift beeindruckt sowohl in der Anzahl als auch in der Größe der Pergamentseiten, die durchschnittlich die Maße von 33 x 25 cm aufweisen. Es wurde nicht für den täglichen Gebrauch und auch nicht für das Studium gefertigt, sondern sollte ein geheiligtes Werk sein und an hohen Festtagen auf dem Altar das Wort Gottes repräsentieren. 680 Seiten, Format: 33 x 25 cm, Einband aus feinstem weißen Leder, mit Schmuckkassette Das Book of Kells wurde vermutlich im Kloster Iona um das Jahr 800 von unbekannten, genialen Künstlern geschaffen. Ein erster Hinweis auf seine Existenz findet sich in einem Bericht von 1007 über einen Diebstahl in der Kirche von Kells, in dem das Buch "Das große Evangeliar des Columcille, die Hauptreliquie der westlichen Welt" genannt wird.Bald darauf wurde das in Kells vergrabene Buch aufgefunden. Es blieb in Kells, bis man es während der Regierungszeit Cromwells aus Sicherheitsgründen nach Dublin brachte. Um 1661 übergab es Henry Jones, Bischof von Meath, dem Trinity College. Seither wird es in der Bibliothek des College in Dublin gehütet.Das Book of Kells enthält vor allem die vier Evangelien. Aber auch andere Texte fanden Aufnahme: etwa am Anfang der Handschrift Kanontafeln, die die Konkordanzverzeichnisse enthalten, die von Eusebius von Cäsarea zusammengestellt worden waren, oder für da … [Click Below for Full Description]

Mortier Peter ( 1661 - 1711 ) Amsterdam
Artist: Mortier Peter ( - 1711 ) Amsterdam; issued in: Amsterdam; date: ca 1741. - technic: Copper print; colorit: original colored; - condition: Very good, printed on two sheets, joined together; - size (in cm): 49 x 56,5; - description : Map depicts with 2 decorative cartouches complet Silesia.; - vita of the artist: Pieter Mortier (1661ñ1711) was an 18th-century mapmaker and engraver from the Northern Netherlands. Mortier had a partnership with Johannes Covens I (1697-1774) and founded the map publishing company Covens & Mortier (1721-1866). Mortier, being French himself, had easy access to French cartographers such as De L'Isle, Sanson, Jaillot, de Fer and De Wit. Consequently, much of Mortier's business was built upon leveraging the sophisticated Dutch printing establishment to issue embellished high quality editions of previously contemporary French maps. In the greater context of global cartography, this was a significant advantage as most Dutch map publishes had, at this point, fallen into the miasma of reprinting their own outdated works. By contrast, the cartographers of France were producing the most accurate and up to date charts anywhere. Mortier's cartographic work culminated in the magnificent nautical atlas, Le Neptune Francois. Upon Pierre's death in 1711 this business was inherited by his widow. In 1721 his son Cornelius Mortier took over the day to day operation of the firm. Cornelius partnered with his brother-in-law Jean Covens to form one of history's great cartographic partnerships - Covens and Mortier - which continued to publish maps and atlases unt … [Click Below for Full Description]

Dictionnaire étymologique du célèbre historien, polygraphe et compilateur jésuite Philippe Labbe suivi d'un Dictionnaire latin-françois et d'un Catalogue curieux de quelques expressions des sons et des voix. La dédicace est adressée à « Messieurs de l'Académie Françoise ». Ebauché puis abandonné à l'époque où Ménage publia ses Origines de la langue françoise (1650), Labbe reprit son travail suite à la publication en 1657 du Jardin des racines grecques du fondateur des Petites écoles de Port Royal Claude Lancelot, afin d'en corriger les « très grandes beveües ». « Professeur de belles-lettres, de philosophie, de théologie, Philippe Labbe (1607-1667) fut surtout un érudit infatigable, d'une puissance de travail extraordinaire, d'une mémoire prodigieuse. Les notes et extraits de lectures laissés par lui à sa mort dépassaient, dit-on, par leur masse, ce qu'un autre savant aurait pu simplement lire en toute une vie. » (Grente).

Digby, Kenelm.
1661. (6), 131, (5) SS. Pappband. 8vo. Seltene, Ferguson unbekannte zweite deutsche Ausgabe (zuvor 1660) des bekannten, bis weit ins 18. Jh. wiederaufgelegten Traktats mit der Erfindung und Anwendungsweise des Wunderheilmittels "Pulvis sympatheticus" (ferrum sulfuricum siccum). Sir Kenelm Digby (1603-65) führte ein abenteuerliches Leben, war als Diplomat aktiv und fuhr auch als Kaperkapitän zur See. Nach dem Tode seiner Frau zu den Naturwissenschaften hingezogen, führte er zahlreiche chemische Experimente durch. "In 1657 his increasingly poor health led Digby to take the waters at Montpellier, where he gave his famous account of the 'powder of sympathy', which cured wounds by being rubbed on the weapon that inflicted them. It was a strong solution of vitriol (copper sulfate) in rainwater, which could be improved by drying in the sun and by mixture with gum tragacanth" (DSB IV, 95). "The discourse on the powder of sympathy, one of the most famous of Digby's productions" (Ferguson VI, 22), erschien zuerst 1658 in Paris (in französischer Sprache), dann im selben Jahr in London auf Englisch und hernach in der Übersetzung von H. Hupka auf Deutsch. - Papierbedingt durchgehend gebräunt. Ohne das gestochene Frontispiz (als Faksimile beiliegend). Alter hs. Besitzvermerk am Titel verso. VD 17, 3:625237G. BL (German books) D 459.

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 s … [Click Below for Full Description]

HEYDEN (HEIDEN), Frans Jansz. van der.
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 fo … [Click Below for Full Description]
