        Richardi Gardiner Herefordensis, Aedis Christi. Oxon. Canonici, Specimen Oratorium Recusum, & Declamationibus Quorandam Ibidem Art: Bac: Necnon Additamentis Studentium Heterogeniis Adornatum

      Excudebat H. Hall Academiae Typographus, Impensis Ric: Davis, Oxoniae, [i.e. Oxford] 1662 - [4], 176pp, [2]. Finely bound in nineteenth-century green crushed morroco, gilt. Marbled endpapers, A.E.G. Slight loss of leather to turn-in of upper board. Slightly soiled, with occasional light staining, else a fine copy. Richard Gardiner (1590/1-1670), Hereford born English clergyman, Canon of Christ Church, Oxford, and deputy orator of the University. The first edition of Gardiner's Specimen Oratorium, published in Oxford, 1653, collected just four of his Oxford orations. Included in that slim 21pp volume are speeches thanking King James I for his presentation to the Bodleian library, in 1620, of a copy of his Works, and a pro-Royalist oration on Edgehill given a week after the battle. The second edition of 1657 so drastically extended the scope of this work that it should rightfully be considered an entirely new publication, including new prose and verse orations, letters and conversational exercises. The Restoration brought with it Gardiner's reinstatement to offices in Oxford, livings in surrounding parishes, and a place in the pro-Royalist society of conservative Oxfordshire. His works were reset and corrected, with additions for this third edition. It did not revive however, as Madan reminds us, all of the the traditional Oxford conventions swept away during the interregnum: 'Latin convention, for instance, was no longer required in college halls' (Madan, III, p.66). All early editions are rare, with ESTC recording only six copies in UK locations of each of the second and third editions, two copies in North America (Illinois, Yale) of the second, and a single copy (Yale) of this third edition.

        Traité des Anciennes Ceremonies: ou Histoire, Contenant leur Naissance et Accroissment, leur Entrée en l'Eglise, et par quels degrez elles ont passé iusques à la Superstition

      [s.l.: s.n], 1662. Second edition (enlarged). Small 4to. [40], 118, [1]. Contemporary vellum, remnant of leather spine label. Covers and spine a little soiled. Barbier IV: 773e . The dedication, to Charles II, King of England is new to this edition, and is signed "Jonas Porrée", to whom Barbier therefore attributes the authorship, even though Porrée in his dedication maintains that the author is anonymous and claims only to have added some illustrations and examples to the text of the first edition (Amsterdam, 1646). The author attempts to trace the origins of rites of the Roman Catholic Church, linking them to pagan rituals, in an attempt to undermine the authority of the Church. This edition of 1662 was doubtless the text which Thomas Douglas used for his English translation of 1668 [Wing P-2980]. Signed on the fornt cover in ink by the nephew of SAMUEL TAYLOR COLERIDGE, "Francis George Coleridge / The Manor House / 1843". Francis George Coleridge was the son of Samuel Taylor's brother, James Coleridge

        A BRIEF NARRATIVE OF THAT STUPENDIOUS TRAGEDIE LATE INTENDED TO BE ACTED BY THE SATANICAL SAINTS OF THESE REFORMING TIMES...TOGETHER WITH THE CONFESSIONS, SPEECHES, AND PRAYERS OF GEORGE PHILLIPS, THOMAS TONGE, NATHANIEL GIBBS, FRANCIS STUBBS, AT THE PLACE OF EXECUTION, ON MUNDAY DECEMB. 22, 1662

      London. 1662.. [14],80pp. Small quarto. 20th-century red half morocco and marbled boards, spine gilt. Light foxing and toning. Last few leaves lightly dampstained at bottom edge; final five leaves with some loss to bottom margin, minutely affecting a few words of text. Good. First edition of this astonishing narrative, laying out a plot by a New Englander living in London to murder King Charles II and re- establish Cromwellian rule. Largely given in cued dialogue, as furnished by a courtroom shorthand reporter, this work recounts the narrative of a plot on the King's life by Captain John Baker, "then living in East- Smithfield, formerly of New- England." Baker was an old adherent of Hugh Peter, or Peters, executed for regicide sympathies in 1660. William Hill, author and informer for this work, encountered Baker in the streets of London and describes him as "but an illiterate and rough-hewn fellow," though capable of great mischief, for "in New- England he might be sufficiently possessed with villainous principles;" thus, Hill decides that he will "modestly put my self upon the sifting of him." This led to hints of a plot to seize and murder the King, slaughter "those Rogues at Whitehall," and restore a "Godly Party" of former Cromwellians to power. Professing complicity, Hill met with conspirators over the next two weeks - mostly disaffected military veterans and seamen, some with New England connections - in private chambers and taverns, where logistics for arming the rebellion were deliberated. All the while, however, Hill was in contact with Sir Richard Brown, a government spymaster, who collected the intelligence as it emerged, and "from whom I received instruction every night." On Oct. 28th, with the enactment of the plot seemingly imminent, Brown and Lieutenant of the Tower Sir John Robinson decided to pounce. Hill accompanied a detachment of soldiers to a pre-arranged meeting place where at least five of the conspirators were apprehended: Riggs, Hinde, Tonge, Stubbs, and one White, a cane merchant said by Tonge to have "bought armes for six men for this design, at his own cost and charge." Captain Baker of Massachusetts was not among them, however, having last been heard of at the Feathers Tavern in Fish Street three evenings before. The remainder of the narrative chronicles, in vivid and often desperate dialogue, the arraignment and trial of six men for High Treason, with further details from preliminary examinations, and four dying speeches or prayers. Hill testified against his co-conspirators and was in turn cross- examined by the court. The elaborate organization boasted of by some of the conspirators may have been illusory in the end - Riggs and Hinde assured Hill that "Windsor Castle was their own" with "five hundred men...fixed in and about Windsor," that "all the churches in London were concerned in it," that "four hundred assistants" were ready in Dorsetshire, and that two thousand horsemen, for whom armor and weaponry had been procured, were expected to ride into London on Monday the 27th, preparatory to "the fatal night." All of these people and plans seem to have melted away, however, once the ringleaders were arrested. And Captain John Baker of New England, who above all seems to have planned the securing of the King's person and the assault on Whitehall, simply fades from the story, despite Hill's account and Riggs' testimony at the trial. A fascinating tale of an American colonist whose place in British history might have been measured alongside the likes of Guy Fawkes. ESTC R32577. WING B4611.

        "America" from A Prospect of the Most Famous Parts of the World

      London: John Speed, 1662. THE 1662 EDITION OF JOHN SPEED'S MAP OF AMERICA-A RARE SURVIVOR OF LONDON'S GREAT FIRE Copperplate engraving with original hand-color Frame size: 28" x 33 ½" Paper size: 16 ½" x 22" State 3: 1662 References: P. D. Burden, The Mapping of North America (Rickmansworth England, 1996), Entry 217; and G. McLaughlin & N. H. Mayo, The Mapping of California as an Island: An Illustrated Checklist (Saratoga, 1995), no. 3. English mapmaker John Speed was one of the most famous cartographers and historians of the seventeenth century. The son of a London tailor, Speed practiced his father's trade until a wealthy patron, Sir Greville, gave him the financial support to pursue his interests in antiquities, genealogies, and cartography. Speed's maps are among the most valuable and sought after due to his expertise and keen eye for detail. Speed is best known for his two impressive atlases, Theatre of the Empire of Great Brittaine, an atlas of the British Isles first published in 1611, and A Prospect of the Most Famous Parts of the World, both of which were the foremost atlases of the seventeenth century. Although A Prospect of the Most Famous Parts of the World was published separately from Theatre of the Empire of Great Brittaine, the two atlases are often bound together. . Book.

All earlier theories of reproduction were based on Aristotelian and Galenic medicinal teaching but Harvey's researches on chicken and deer embryos proved to his satisfaction that semen fertilized the ovum and that spontaneous generation was without foundation. He also explained growth and differentiation of organs and opposed the doctrine of pre-formation. "The most important book on the subject to appear during the 17th century" (Garrison-Morton. Cf.

        The Experienc'd Angler, or Angling Improved

      sold by Richard Marriott, [London, 1662] - Engraved additional title by Vaughan, with contemporary or early hand-colouring. 10 engravings of fishes in the text. 12mo. [143 x 92 x 20 mm]. [7]ff, 105, [7] pp. Bound in contemporary sheepskin (later endleaves, a later label now missing from the spine, foot of the spine neatly repaired, a little worn). Contained within a new green cloth drop-over box. Wing V183. Westwood & Satchell, p.213. Lacking the printed title-page, which does not appear have been bound in. The full-title is The Experienc'd Angler: or Angling Improved. Being a general discourse of angling; imparting many of the aptest wayes and choicest experiments for the taking of most sorts of fish in pond or river. London: printed for Richard Marriot, and are to be sold at his shop in St. Dunstan's Church-yard, 1662. The blank lower corner of leaf E6 and a small strip at the outer margin of H5 have been torn away, there is some minor browning and foxing and occasional light damp-staining, and there are a number of contemporary ink corrections. It is still a good copy. Robert Venables (1612-1687) rose to the rank of colonel within the parliamentary army, distinguishing himself first in Cheshire, and then commanding forces in the "pacification" of Ireland. He was appointed, jointly with William Penn, to command Cromwell's planned attack on the Southern West Indies. The mission was a disaster. Venables and Penn fell out, failing to take Hispaniola in April 1655, with Venables seeking compensation by invading Jamaica. This was aborted after taking the capital, for fear of a guerilla campaign, and Penn fled back to England with Venables following in hot pursuit. Both were subjected to the displeasure of Cromwell and the council, and were interred in the Tower for a short time. The West Indies debacle effectively ended Venables's career and he returned to Cheshire to languish in obscurity. He evidently sought solace in angling and he notes that the minds of anglers are "usually more calm than others, especially hunters and falkners". The Experienc'd Angler passed through five editions in Venables lifetime, though no copy of a second edition has been recorded. ESTC online records nine copies of this first edition, with only the British Library and Bodleian in the British Isles. A copy was sold at Bonhams in London, 27/6/2006, lot 169, and made £16,800. It had the printed title and was in a modern binding. The two page preface "To his ingenious Friend the Author On his Angling Improv'd" was written by Isaac Walton, whose Compleat Angler was first published by Richard Marriot in 1653. The ten engraved vignettes of fish appear in both books. This work offers advice on the making of tackle (and the best places to buy it), artifical flies, the various sorts of baits, and how to keep them, the preferred haunts of different fish and when best and when not to angle. With the pre-1938 Maggs Bros cost code "uoso" and the bookplate of Oliver Collett. [Attributes: First Edition]

        SILVA or, a Discourse of Forest Trees, and the Propagation of Timber in His Majesty's Dominions: As it was Delivered in the Royal Society on the 15th Day of October, 1662.

      - [title continues:] Together with an Historical Account of the Sacredness and use of Standing Groves. By John Evelyn, With notes by A. Hunter, First Hunter Edition, engraved portrait frontispiece of Evelyn by F. Bartolozzi, [54],649,[11], with 40 fine copper-engraved plates by Johann Sebastian Muller (including one folding, "A Winter View of the Canthorpe Oak") and a folding table; very large thick quarto, fine contemporary straight-grained morocco elaborately gilt extra with very delicate and extensive decoration between milled bands, green morocco label, sometime expertly rehinged, all edges gilt (these with some blind embossed decoration), marbled paper endpapers, in all a highly attractive copy in a superb 18thC binding, Printed by A. Ward for J. Dodsley; T. Cadell; J. Robson; and T. Durham, London. W. Creech and J. Balfour, Edinburgh [through 1787], York, 1776. Provenance: with the contemporary engraved bookplate of G. Sutton. Henrey 137. Keynes 47. FURTHER PHOTOGRAPHS ON REQUEST. "Hunter's edition of Sylva [is] a handsome quarto volume with extensive notes to bring it up to date and illustrated with a number of whole-page engravings. The illustrations depicting the foliage, flower, and fruit of the trees described are drawn and engraved by John Miller, otherwise Johann Sebastian Mueller. The excellence of these figures resulted in their being used to illustrate later works on silviculture, even up to the present day." - Henrey, British Botanical and Horticultural Literature before 1800. " In 1652, Evelyn set about to create the garden at Sayes Court (the 200-acre Deptford estate his father-in-law held from the crown), a project that signalled the start of a serious interest in garden design. This led to his writing the Elysium Britannicum, an encyclopedic history of gardens and gardening practices that occupied him for most of his life. His pioneering works on tree cultivation (Silva, 1664) and on soils (A Philosophical Discourse of Earth, 1676; in later editions entitled Terra: a philosophical discourse) were both outgrowths of Elysium Britannicum. Although primarily intended to encourage tree planting after the devastation of the civil war, Silva was also a learned account of the growth and uses of native trees interpolated by an edited collection of material sent in by Fellows of the Royal Society from different parts of the country (indeed, Silva was the first book to carry the Society's imprimatur). By its fourth edition it also contained 'an Historical Account of the Sacredness and Use of Standing Groves.' Silva's handsome reissue in 1776, with additional plates and with "learned and extensive" (Keynes) extensive annotations, practical instructions, and references to the best eighteenth century authorities by Alexander Hunter, gave it renewed popularity."

      [s.l.: s.n], 1662 - The dedication, to Charles II, King of England is new to this edition, and is signed "Jonas Porrée", to whom Barbier therefore attributes the authorship, even though Porrée in his dedication maintains that the author is anonymous and claims only to have added some illustrations and examples to the text of the first edition (Amsterdam, 1646). The author attempts to trace the origins of rites of the Roman Catholic Church, linking them to pagan rituals, in an attempt to undermine the authority of the Church. This edition of 1662 was doubtless the text which Thomas Douglas used for his English translation of 1668 [Wing P-2980].

The map itself is based on John Speed's map, published in 1612, though without the town plans. Blaeu's map includes the coats of arms of two prominent families. The title cartouche illustrates Hertfordshire's relationship to London in that the county supplied corn and hay to the pleading Londoners pictured on the right hand side of the title. Because of its proximity to London, Hertfordshire had many country houses, reflected in some of the placenames on the map: Waterford Hall, Aldbery Hall, Shingle Hall, and, of course, Waymer Castle.

        Four maps showing the course of the Dnieper River, Ukraine From the Atlas Major

      Amsterdam: Joan Blaeu, 1662. SET OF 4 Each measuring: 21 x 24 1/2" Hand-colored copper-plate engravings Joan Blaeu, born in Alkmarr in 1598, was the eldest child of Willem Jaszoon Blaeu, philosopher and pupil of famed astronomer Tycho Brahe, and his wife, Marretgen Conelisd. In 1599, Willem Blaeu, a globe and instrument maker, moved with his family to Amsterdam, where he opened a printing house specializing in maritime publications, but which also published works on literature, art, and theology. Joan was a student in Leiden from 1616 to 1619, after which he toured Europe for a year, a luxury often taken by the children of wealthy parents. It was not until 1630 that Joan Blaeu began to play an active position in the printing house, taking on the role of partner with his father. In 1638 Willem died, and Joan took charge of the large printing house. At this time he was also appointed cartographer to the Dutch East India Company. From 1636 to 1650, Amsterdam flourished politically, economically, and culturally. Trade with Asia and the Americas brought prosperity, and there were many new advances in the arts and sciences. During this period, Blaeu, who was deeply involved in the political, economic, and cultural life of his time, expanded the printing house and printed innumerable books, maps, and globes. In 1662, Blaeu published Atlas Major, the world's largest atlas, which contained six hundred maps that portrayed the entire known world of the 17th century, including legendary lands, exotic kingdoms, and distant empires. These maps were elegantly decorated and embellished, and they were unrivaled in detail and splendor. Not only was Atlas Major meant as a functional atlas, but, as the most lavish and expensive book sold in the 17th century, it was also intended as a glamorous object to be admired by wealthy owners. Atlas Major displayed the exceptional skill and art of mapmakers in Amsterdam. . Book.

Rebound in quarter leather. Clean pages. Light wear. Very attractive coloring. Although Goedaert, a noted watercolorist and one of the earliest authors on entomology, did not devise a system of insect classification, attributed some insect larvae to spontaneous generation, and made a number of anatomical errors, he was the first person to base his research entirely upon firsthand observation-experiment and One of his contemporaries noted that in only a few years, Goedaert, who had no formal education, discovered and identified more distinct types of caterpillars than all of the naturalist that preceded him.

        De Homine Figuris et latinate donatus a Florentio Schuyl, Inclytæ Urbis Sylvæ Ducis Senatore, & ibidem Philosophiæ Professore.

      Lugduni Batavorum (Leyden), Apud Petrum Leffen & Franciscum Moyardum, 1662. 4to. Later half vellum with some wear. Internally a very nice, clean, and fresh copy, with some light occasional browning. (36), 121, (1) pp. + 10 plates. Complete with all 56 woodcut and engraved text-illustrations (many of which are full-page) and the 10 full-page engraved plates (several folded), one of which is the heart-plate with the 6 moveable parts, the Cardiac-flaps. A very good copy with good margins.. First edition of Descartes' seminal treatise on man, the first European textbook of physiology, constituting an epochal work of modern thought, defining the mechanism of man as it does. "In the Treatise of man, Descartes did not describe man, but a kind of conceptual models of man, namely creatures, created by God, which consist of two ingredients, a body and a soul. "These men will be composed, as we are, of a soul and a body. First I must describe the body on its own; then the soul, again on its own; and finally I must show how these two natures would have to be joined and united in order to constitute men who resemble us"." (SEP). This highly influential work was the first to present a coherent description of bodily responses in neurophysiological terms that are still, to a wide extent, accepted today. In his attempt to solve the central question around which almost all philosophical thought had revolved since the time of Aristotle, what the relation between the soul and the body actually is, Descartes came to create a milestone work of physiology which changed the entire trajectory of modern physiological conceptions. "Without Descartes, the seventeenth-century mechanization of physiological conceptions would have been inconceivable." (DSB). He believed that the relationship between the soul and the body was mediated by the brain and the nervous system, and his seminal attempts to explain neural mechanisms drew a great deal on the engineering developments of his time (eg. the hydraulic automata that had been installed at the Versailles). He developed a hydro-mechanical theory of how the soul controlled the contraction of muscle through the intermediary of the pineal and the cerebral ventricles, and he produced an explanation of how it received, through the nerves from the periphery, signals that gave rise to sensation. Descartes' theories quickly spread throughout Europe, and the work in which he had developed them, his "De Homine" became extremely influential. This posthumously published work was actually written in the 1630's, but after the condemnation of Galilei in 1633, Descartes did not dare publish it; "although it thus had to await posthumous publication in the 1660's, his writing of the Traité de l'homme proved extremely important in the further maturation of Descartes's physiological conceptions." (D.S.B. p.62). "Some time after Descartes's death in 1650, his French manuscript, copies of which had circulated among his friends and correspondents, was edited and published. The first version was a Latin translation (De homine) by Florentius Schuyl in 1662, the second the now better known 'original' French version (Traité de l'homme) edited by Descartes's self-appointed literary executor Claude Clerselier in 1664. In the seventeenth century the 1662 Latin version was probably much more widely read than the French text. There were problems for the editors of both versions. Firstly, there were differences between the manuscripts: Clerselier in Paris claimed that his version was Descartes's own, that the others were 'corrupt' and that Schuyl had been 'misled' by them. However, a more important difficulty was raised because it was clear that the text was intended to be illustrated - Descartes refers to figures and to features within these labelled by letters. But no set of figures accompanied the manuscripts. Both editors have left quite detailed accounts in their long prefaces - little treatises in themselves. Here I consider only Schuyl, the editor of the Latin De homine. Schuyl (1619-69) was a professor of philosophy in the town of 's-Hertogenbosch in the Netherlands, the country in which Descartes was living during the writing of Le monde. Two of the author's friends had copies of the manuscript that they supplied to Schuyl, and with one of these were included two sketches of illustrations apparently in Descartes's own hand. These Schuyl included. One of them represents the medial and lateral rectus muscles in the orbit, which deflect the eye nasally and temporally. The other figures Schuyl had to have made and, since he mentions no one else, one supposes that he designed them himself."

        [Mosaic marble tile floors from five churches, most or all in Rome]. [Rome?, ca. 1662 or 18th century]. Small folio (26 x 19.5 cm). 40 ink and watercolour drawings (28 round and 12 square, each ca. 11 x 11 cm) showing the decorative patterns and coloured marbles from the floors of 5 churches. Each has a triple-rule border in black ink with a panel at the foot containing the name of the church. Contemporary(?) boards covered with later (ca. 1840?) Storemont on shell marbled paper.

      A book of 40 detailed colour drawings showing the elaborate patterns in the mosaic marble tile floors of five different churches, with eight examples from each church: Santa Maria Maggiore (1-8), Santi Giovanni e Paolo (9-16), San Marco (17-24), Sant' Alessio (25-32) and Sant' Ivo (33-40). All probably refer to the Roman churches of these names, though the Basilica di San Marco in Venice also has elaborate mosaic floors. Some of the mosaics are in the Mediaeval Italian style called Cosmatesque, but some may date from the Renaissance. Besides a wide variety of triangular, square, rectangular, diamond, hexagonal, and octagonal tiles, there are many cut with circular edges and a few irregular quadrilaterals. Some are assembled to form stars in a hexagonal grid, round sunburst patterns and an endless variety of other patterns. All patterns show a rotational symmetry around the centre point or a repeating pattern in a square or hexagonal grid. The colouring of many of the tiles shows various styles and colours of marble veins.The drawings are difficult to date exactly. The leaves used for the drawings show a single paper stock, very close to Piccard VI, watermarks V.423 & V.424 (Rome 1662). The drawings could have been made as early as ca. 1662, but the lettering of the names of the churches seems more likely to date from the 18th century. In 1752, Monsignor Giuseppe Alessandro Furietti, a prelate from Bergamo, published an illustrated book on mosaics from classical Rome to his own day: De Musivis, Rome, 1752. This marked a new interest in such antiquities, but he illustrates mainly earlier examples and we find little link with the present examples, which were probably drawn before his book appeared. With smudges on a few pages, one slightly affecting the edge of one drawing, but otherwise in very good condition, with only a light marginal water stain in the last few leaves. The front hinge is broken and the spine and edges of the binding are somewhat tattered. Since many floor mosaics have been destroyed or damaged over the centuries, the present book provides a unique historical record of some of the designs.
