SILHON (Jean de)
Paris, Imprimerie Royale, 1661. In-4, plein veau brun de l'époque, dos à 5 nerfs orné de compartiments entièrement garnis d'une résille dorée aux petits fers, roulette dorée en tête et pied, tranches rouges, (1) f., (42), 637, (1) p., bandeaux et culs de lampes gravés et historiés. Edition originale de cet essai dédié à Louis XIV et publié à l’imprimerie royale l’année même de la mort de Mazarin dont l’auteur avait été le secrétaire et le protégé depuis 1642. Philosophe proche de Descartes, Jean de Silhon (1596-1667) devint secrétaire de Richelieu, conseiller d'État, secrétaire de Mazarin et l’un des premiers fondateurs et membre de l'Académie française (1634). Il est l’un des principaux théoriciens et idéologues du pouvoir absolu de la période. "Le propos se divise en deux moments : la réfutation de la philosophie de Montaigne – figure emblématique du scepticisme aux yeux de Silhon – et de sa thèse sur la nature trompeuse des sens ( ). Point remarquable: on trouvera au livre I de l’ouvrage la formulation d’un curieux cogito ( ) qui précède de trois ans le Discours de la méthode, il est peut-être le fruit de discussions avec Descartes ( ). Les livres III et IV, cœur de l'ouvrage, sont consacrés à la justification du principe fondamental de l’obéissance au Prince qu’illustrent des exemples empruntés aux épisodes de la Ligue et des Guerres de religion" (cf. Christian Nadeau, éd. Fayard). Si le titre annonce une suite qui ne parut jamais, 'De la Certitude des connoissances humaines' fut plus tard réimprimé par l'auteur à la suite de son 'Ministre d’Etat'. (Brunet, V, 381.

Rapin de Thoyras Paul (1661 - 1725 )
Artist: Rapin de Thoyras Paul ( - 1725 ) ; date: 1750 1661 - - technic: Copper print; colorit: original colored; condition: Lower margin perfectly restored; size (in cm): 38 x 48 - description: Map shows the citymaps of Barcelona - vita of the artist: Paul de Rapin de Thoyras ( 1661 ? 1725), sieur of Thoyras (and therefore styled Thoyras de Rapin), was a French historian writing under English patronage.The son of Jacques de Rapin, an avocat at Castres (Tarn), he was educated at the Protestant Academy of Saumur, and in 1679 became an advocate, but soon afterwards joined the army. The revocation of the Edict of Nantes in 1685, and the death of his father led him to move to England; but, unable to find work there, he went on to the Netherlands where he enlisted in a company of French volunteers at Utrecht, commanded by his cousin, Daniel de Rapin.He accompanied William III to England in 1688, and during the Williamite war in Ireland he took part in the Siege of Carrickfergus and the Battle of the Boyne, and was wounded at the Siege of Limerick (1690). Soon afterwards he was promoted to captain; but in 1693 he resigned in order to become tutor to the Earl of Portland's son. After travelling with the boy, he settled with his family (he married Marie-Anne Testart in 1699) in Holland, first at the Hague, then, to save money, at Wesel, in 1707.

Giuseppe (Gioseffo) Flavio
Appresso li Milochi, 1661. In-8° ( 222 x 160 mm) pp. [30], 268; 264; [2], 332 [2b] con testalini e capilettera xilografici, legatura in piena pergamena floscia coeva, titoli manoscritti al dorso. Con copiosi indici all'inizio del volume. Al primo frontespizio antica firma di appartenenza, il cui inchiostro ha corroso piccola parte della pagina senza perdita di 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. 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 pa … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Quaker Literature]. Smith, William [d. 1673]
London: Printed for Robert Wilson, at the sign of the Black Spread-Eagle and Wind-Mill, in Martins Le Grand, 1661. 1st Edition (Smith II, p. 605; Wing S4288). Self-wrappers. Now housed in an archival mylar sleeve. Edgewear & soiling to outer wrappers. Age-toning. Very Good.. 23, [1 (blank)] pp. 4to: A - B^4 C^2. 6-7/8" x 5-1/2" "William Smith was born in Besthorpe, Nottinghamshire, where he lived for most of his life. Little is known of his parentage and background except that he was ‘a man of good esteem in his country, and educated after the manner of the better sort of yeomens' sons’ (‘Several testimonies’). He served for several years as chief constable of his hundred and became an Independent pastor before joining the Quakers in 1658. Smith suffered frequent periods of imprisonment, during which time he penned many of his large output of tracts, which number well over fifty. ... Smith was arrested, along with many others, in March 1661 for being at a meeting at Worcester, and was kept in prison for some time for refusing the oath of allegiance. He wrote at least five of his books at this time [of which this is one, per Smith, the Friends' bibliographer] and others were completed while in Nottingham gaol, where he was confined on many occasions between 1661 and 1665. In 1663 he was imprisoned for non-payment of tithes and gives an account of his incarceration in The Standing Truth (1663). Of interest are a number of catechisms written in the 1660s which were reprinted later in the decade, including A New Primmer (1663) and A New Catechism (1664), the latter dealing wit … [Click Below for Full Description]

Sonnenberg, Konrad von].
[No place, no publisher], 1661. 4to (188 x 145 mm). 19, (3) pp. With a very large folding plate illustrating the curious fossil (490 x 425 mm), engraved by Johann Melchior Schindler of Luzern, the plate with two mended tears; a very good copy in contemporary marbled wrappers. Only edition of a very rare description of a curious and wonderful fossil which was discovered on the 26th of August 1660 in the mountains near Uri in the region of Schwensburg in Switzerland; the fossil showed in its centre an image of the Virgin and Child. Although the author it at great pains to refute the notion that the image could have been added by human hand, it is very likely that this was a planted hoax fossil very much in the mould of the 'Lying Stones' of Beringer which appeared sixty-five years later in Würzburg. In 1725 Johann Adam Beringer became the victim of a famous hoax whereby two of his colleagues at the University of Würzburg planted a series of carved limestones in the shape of lizards, frogs, spider etc. and had them 'discovered' by the hapless Beringer who published his finds, Lithographiae Wirceburgensis Specimen in 1726. For a short time these curious lime stones took pride of place in Beringer's mineral and fossil cabinet. Although the fakes were fantastical in nature Beringer took them at face value and declared them 'capricious fabrications of God'. The author of the present pamphlet comes to very much the same conclusion, but in his defence one should say that scientific inquiry was less advanced in 1661 than in 1725.

Ignatius a Jesus.
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.

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'.

Artist: Mortier Peter ( - 1711 ) Amsterdam; issued in: Amsterdam; date: 1690 1661 - - technic: Copper print; colorit: colored; condition: Very good; size in cm : 39 x 55 - description: map of America - Vita of the artist: "Pieter Mortier (1661?1711) 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 until about 1866. "

First edition of the first significant - and conspicuously scarce - biography of the "Huguenot paladin" François de La Noue (1531-1591), one of the great Protestant captains of the 16th-century Wars of Religion, described by the distinguished American historian John Lothrop Motley as "not only one of the most experienced soldiers, but one of the most accomplished writers of his age" (Dutch Republic, III p. 480). At the siege of Fontenay in 1570 his left arm was shattered by a bullet and a "mechanic" fitted an iron limb that earned him the sobriquet of "Bras de fer" or "Iron arm".

He is an important figure with regard to his political and religious affiliations as well as with regard to his Discours politiques et militaires (1587)" (Dorothea B.
