Ignatius a Jesus.
Rome, typis Sacrae Congregationis de Propaganda Fide, 1661.. Small 4to. (2), 60 pp. Modern contemporary-style ivory vellum, handwritten title on spine.. Extremely rare first edition of this precious 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 Gesu (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 Mendai). 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 light foxing and browning as common, slight abrasion on title (vignette very slightly affected), lacks final blank leaf. Old library shelfmark in ink to title. A very good copy. - Brunet III, 405. Schwab 863. Smitskamp 310 c.

APOLLONIUS Pergaeus and ARCHIMEDES (attributed to)
Florence, Giuseppe Cocchini, 1661. Folio (348 x 230 mm), pp [xxxvi] 415 [1, blank], with numerous woodcut diagrams in text, title in red and black, correction slips pasted on pp 300, 312 and 352; a very clean, crisp, large-paper copy in contemporary Italian brown morocco, gilt fillets and panels on sides and gilt-panelled spine, gilt edges. First edition, a beautifully bound, large-paper copy, of books V-VII of the Conics, the most original parts of Apollonius's treatise on conic sections. Books I-IV were translated and published in 1537, and at the time it was believed that the remaining books were lost. 'In the first half of the seventeenth century the Medici family acquired an Arabic manuscript containing Books V-VII of Apollonius's Conics, which had been lost up to that time. In 1658, with the help of the Maronite scholar Abraham Ecchellensis, Giovanni Borelli prepared an edited Latin translation of the manuscript, which was published three years later. This was a valuable addition to the mathematical knowledge of the time, for whereas Books I-IV of the Conics dealt with information already known to Apollonius's predecessors, Books V-VII were largely original. Book V discusses normals to conics and contains Apollonius's proof for the construction of the evolute curve; Book VI treats congruent and similar conics and segments of conics; Book VII is concerned with propositions about inequalities between various functions of conjugate diameters' (Norman catalogue).'The fifth book reveals better than any other the giant intellect of its author. Difficult questions of maxima … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

(1 blank), 792, (18) pp. 756, (24) pp. Contemp. limp vellum with ms. spine titles; all edges of vol. 2 sprinkled in red.. Early duodecimo reprint edition of Della Valle's complete "Viaggi", published while the first complete edition was still under the press. Della Valle's account is highly sought after as one of the earliest printed sources for the early history of Dibba, the coastal region at the northeastern tip of the United Arab Emirates, today ruled by the Emirates of Fujairah and of Sharjah. - Pietro della Valle (1586-1652) left Venice in 1614 on a pilgrimage to Palestine, proceeding to Baghdad and then into Persia, where he married and sojourned in the court of Shah Abbas. While staying with the Sultan of Bandar Abbas, he "met the son of the ruler of Dibba who was visiting. From this he learned that Dibba had formerly been subject to the kingdom of Hormuz, but was at that time loyal to the Safavids who in 1623 sent troops to Dibba, Khor Fakkan and other ports on the southeast coast of Arabia in order to prepare for a Portuguese counter-attack following their expulsion from Hormuz (Jarun). In fact, the Portuguese under Ruy Freire were so successful that the people of Dibba turned on their Safavid overlords, putting them all to death, whereupon a Portuguese garrison of 50 men was installed at Dibba. More Portuguese forces, however, had to be sent to Dibba in 1627 as a result of an Arab revolt. Curiously, two years later the Portuguese proposed moving part of the M … [Click Below for Full Description]

Contemp. richly gilt calf, leading edges and spine gilt (tiny defect to upper spine-end and hinge). Marbled pastedowns.. First edition of this rare work on precious stones and pearls found in the East and West Indies, written by a Parisian "marchand orphevre". Dedicated to "La Grande Mademoiselle" Anne Marie Louise d'Orleans, Duchess of Montpensier and niece of Louis XIII, with her finely engraved portrait by L. Boissevin (which, according to Graesse, is frequently lacking). This "very early, and important treatise on gemstones, gold & silver" (Sinkankas) includes a chapter dedicated exclusively to pearls, a subject with which the author was especially familiar (cf. ibid.), and the Persian Gulf is stated as one of the main locations of pearl fishing: "on pesche les perles en divers endroits du monde. Dans le Golfe Persique, principalement aux environs de l'Isle d'Ormus & Bassora: aupres de Baroyn [i.e., Bahrain], Catiffa, Iuffa, Camaron, & autres lieux de ce Golfe [...]" (p. 74). "The first chapter attempts to reconcile differing views of various writers, as cited by Berquen, on the origin of gemstones and precious metals, with following chapters taking up the principal gemstones, and some minor ones, as diamond, sapphire, topaz, ruby, spinel, emerald, amethyst, aquamarine, hyacinth, opal, chrysolite, iris, vermeille, garnets, carnelian, turquoise, quartz varieties, pearl, coral and amber, and lastly, a chapter on g … [Click Below for Full Description]

Later endpapers with original marbled endpapers bound in. An excellent copy of a very rare book. Housed in a fleece-lined half black morocco clamshell case. "During 1661 a further work was published by Kircher which brought a refreshingly rational approach to a problem worrying the people of Naples. Mysterious crosses had been appearing on clothing and all manner of fabrics. In this Diatribe de prodigiosis crucibus Kircher proved that the suspected indication of heavenly wrath was little more than the presence in the air around Vesuvius-dominated Naples of minute specks of volcanic ash, settling on the texture of woven cloth." (John Fletcher. A study of the life and works of Athanasius Kircher, p. 51).

Si tratta del principale, fondamentale testo di astronomia, matematica e gnomonica di David Gregory (Aberdeen, 1661 - 1708), docente a Oxford e Edinburgh, nipote del matematico scozzese Jacopo Gregory e amico personale di Isaac Newton.

DAHLBERG, ERIK:
. [Stockholm & Paris 1661-1715]. 353 kobberstukne plancher, hvoraf nogle er foldede. Folio Totalt ubeskaret eksemplar indbundet i 2 smukke samtidige halvlaederbind af röd maroquin med rig guldtryk pa ryggene.<br>353 engraved plates, some folding. Totally uncut copy bound in 2 nice contemporary halfleatherbindings richly gilt on spines. * Skandinaviens störste og fornemmeste kobberstikvaerk i et af de eftertragtede eksemplarer i staende folio, som Erik Dahlberg selv havde planlagt det med Merians topografier som forbillede. Dahlberg var en fremragende general, ingeniör og tegner, der selv leverede de fleste af forlaeggene til kobberstikkene. Det ambitiöse vaerk er fra Sveriges storhedstid og det tog mere end 50 ar at fuldende det med dets mange vidunderlige prospekter af byer og statelige bygningsvaerker i alle egne af Sverige og Finland. Der var planlagt og pabegyndt en tekst til det store vaerk, men den udkom aldrig. <br>The greatest and finest engraved work ever produced in Scandinavia. "The Suecia antiqva is up to our own day by far the greatest Swedish effort to present the country and its architectural treasures. The initiator and artist behind this great enterprise was the most important constructor of fortifications of his century, Erik Dahlberg, artist and architect, Surveyor-General of the Ordinance, Quarter-Master General and Field Marshal (1625-1703). (Lindberg no. 37)". This is one of the very rare copies bound as vertical folio (instead of oblong folio)..

ROGERS, Thomas
London: Printed By John Field, 1661. [36], 56, 53-204, 195-222pp. Contemporary unlettered calf, triple ruled to edges of boards. Two leaves of binders waste from an early sixteenth-century edition (Venice or Rome, circa 1515-20) of Sacro Bosco's Sphaera, in folio, used as endpapers. A fine, crisp and unpressed copy. Light wear and two minute wormholes to joints. Thomas Rogers (c1553-1616), Anglican clergyman and anti-sabbatarian religious controversialist. Undoubtedly his enduring work, The Faith is an exposition and history of the thirty-nine articles of the Anglican creed first published 1607. Based, but with heavily revised opinions towards those Elizabethan non-conformists originally treated with some sympathy in the same author's The English Creede (London, 1585), it crowned a lengthy career in theological translation and controversialism. Wing R1833.. Quarto.

[TASMAN] CAMPEN, Jacob Van.
Dancker Danckerts, Amsterdam, 1661. Folio, with an engraved title-page, a full-page portrait of Campen and 30 engraved plates, mostly double-page, one folding; contemporary vellum with the arms of Stirling Maxwell stamped in blind on the upper boards (there is also a later family member's bookplate). 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 engravin … [Click Below for Full Description]

[PLAN - AMSTERDAM CITY HALL]. [CAMPEN, Jacob van].
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'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.
