Höhepunkt und gleichzeitig das Ende der klassichen Periode der Maschinenbücher markierend. - Die Tradition der auch als "Mühlenbücher" bezeichneten maschinenbautechnischen Frühwerke begann in der zweiten Hälfte des 16. Jahrhunders mit Jacques Bessons "Theatre des instruments mathematiques et mechaniques" und setzte sich mit Büchern von Jean Errard de Bar-Le-Duc und Agostino Ramelli fort. Ihre Benennung als 'Theatrum machinarum' verweist auf die zentrale Rolle, die den darin ausgebreiteten Abbildungen zukommt. Sie vermitteln technische Ideen, die, wenn überhaupt, meist erst viel später Verwirklichung fanden, trugen aber mit ihrem Ideenreichtum zu einem grösseren Interesse an technischen Sachverhalten bei. Der Zeitraum in dem diese Drucke florierten, zerfällt in zwei Perioden: nach Böcklers" Theatrum machinarum novum", das als opulent illustriertes Schaubuch noch einmal vor allem auch dem Unterhaltungsbedürfnis des hochadeligen Zielpublikums Tribut zollte, unterscheiden sich die nachfolgenden Veröffentlichungen deutlich dadurch, dass es in ihnen ausschliesslich um die Darstellung des zeitgenössischen Stands der Technik geht, sich in ihnen fortan die rein utilitaristische Einstellung zur Maschine manifestiert. Die nach den Mühlenzeichnungen Jacopo de Stradas nachgearbeiteten und gestochenen Kupfertafeln stammen aus dessen "Epitome theasuri antiquitatum". Boecklers Verleger Paul Fürst war es gelungen, die für Stradas Frankfurter Ausgabe entstandenen Kupferplatten aus dem Nachlass von Stradas Enkel Giacomo zu retten. Zusätzlich zu den nach Böcklers eigenen Vorlagen in Kupfer gearbeiteten Tafeln finden sich weitere Nachstiche aus Agostino Ramellis "Le diverse et artificiose machine" (1588). Vittorio Zoncas "Novo teatro di machine et edificii" (1607) und Salomon de Caus' "Von gewaltsamen Bewegungen" (1615). Die berühmte letzte Kupfertafel zeigt die um 1655 von Johann Hautsch in Nürnberg konstruierte Feuerspritze, eine aus zwei Kammern bestehende Spritze, deren Pumpleistung Höhen von bis zu 25 Meter erreichbar machten. Boecklers klassisches Maschinenwerk erfuhr bis zum Beginn des 18. Jahrhunderts noch mindestens drei Neuauflagen. Nebst seinem erstmals 1661 auf Deutsch aufgelegten Hauptwerk verfasste er auch noch Bücher über den Festungsbau sowie zur Oekonomie. - (Vereinzelte schwache Wasserflecken, gelegentlich sehr schmaler Braunrand im Textteil). - Mit gestochenem Wappenexlibris J. Gilbert F. Crompton (Derbyshire, U.K.) mit Motto: Love and Loyalty sowie Name (Brathnaver) von alter Hand auf dem Kopfsteg des Kupfertitels. A fine and complete copy of this classic in early machine books in its first Latin edition. A lavishly illustrated collection of experimental designs by one of Germany's leading engineers. Boeckler, a specialist in hydraulic architecture, had issued several works on the construction of military fortifications before publishing "Theatrum machinarum". The striking engraed title, signed in the plate by Paulus van Somer after a design by Boeckler, is accompanied by a series of accomplished and detailed illustrations, again engraved after Boeckler's sketches. The same plates as in the German first edition of 1661 mostly bear the initils of engravers BS (Bathasar Schwann) and EK (Eberhard Kieser), some ar reproductions of concepts fount in earlier works by Besson and Ramelli. The work's popularity necessitated a further three re-issues over the next forty years. Boeckler's undoubted expertise in hydraulics wa invaluable to 17th century engineers and many of these designs were put into practice throughout Europe at a period when the use of waterpower as an energy source was regarded as state-of-the-art. Schematics for wint machines, water-driven pumps, fire engine pumps, and, in plate 150, a design for a perpetual motion machine are includes. This latter machin (while undoubtedly influenced by Archimedian principles) bears a strong resemblance to the modern turbine, particularly in the shape of its motive blades. Its design strongly inflences subswquent exploration into the plausibilities of perpetual motion made by the likes of Ulrich von Cranach and Jacob Leupold. Describes and pictures are paper, water and gunpowder mills, a fulling mill, pipe boring mills, grinding apparatus for sharpening tools, knives and weapons, grist and windmills, among the water driven pump the dual cylinder valve pump described by Vitruvius. Boeckler ha an interest in perpetual motion machines that manage to pump water and at the same time drive the machine. The last engraving depicts a fire engine pump made by Johnn Hautsch of Nuremberg in 1658, by which twenty-four men could rais water to eighty or a hundred feet. - Contemporary vellum, ms title on spine. - (Upper corner of title page torn off, few leaves with inobtrusive waterstain, narrow brown stain in outer margins). - Contemporary ownership signature "Brathnaver" at head of engraved titel, 19th century bookplte of J. Gilbert F. Crompton (Derbyshire, U.K.). (Sprache: Lateinisch)

Johannes Goedaert (1617-1668) was a famous Dutch landscape and flower painter who lived all his life in Middelburg. "No botanical or zoological drawings are extant.

The book describes the results of his investigation into the metamorphosis of insects, accompanied by a large amount of original observations, some of which were prompted by experiments with his own cultures. The book stood model for several other celebrated treatises on the subject, for example Maria Sibylla Merian" (Segal, Flowers and nature, p. 198). A small number of pages somewhat browned as is mostly the case with this book. Provenance: Bookplate of John Cookney on inside frontcover and old signature of D'Apples on title. Nissen ZBI, 1602..

        An estimate of the degrees of mortality of mankind, drawn from curious tables of the births and funerals at the city of Breslaw; with an attempt to ascertain the price of annuities upon lives.London: Samuel Smith for the Royal Society, 1692/3. First edition.

      Exceptional copy (uncut, stitched as issued), of this hugely influential paper in the history of statistics, in which Halley produced the first life table based on sound demographic data, and gave the first correct calculation of annuities, using essentially the same methods that are still used today. "Halley's paper became of great importance to actuarial science... It is a singular proof of his versatility that he produced this seminal paper in a field rather far from his main interests" (Hald, p. 141).<br/><br/> Halley began by referring to John Graunt, who had published <i>Natural and Political Observations upon the Bills of Mortality</i> in 1662, in which he calculated rates of mortality for the City of London. Halley points out that the deductions from these Bills of Mortality were defective since there was 'accession of strangers to the City' which meant that the underlying population was not constant but increasing. <br/><br/> Halley therefore sought sources where the population was stationary, or, in his words, that the number of births and deaths were roughly the same. This appeared to be the case for Breslau (now the Polish city of Wroclaw). Breslau kept detailed records of births, deaths, and the ages of people when they died. In comparison, when Graunt published his work, the ages of deceased people were not recorded in London (and would not be recorded until the 18th century). Caspar Neumann, an important German minister in Breslau, sent some demographic records to Gottfried Leibniz who in turn sent them to the Royal Society in London. Halley analysed Neumann's data, which covered the years 1687-1691, and published the analysis in the <i>Philosophical Transactions</i> as the present paper. The Breslau data had the property that annual births were approximately equal to deaths, there was little migration in or out of the city, and age specific death rates were approximately constant; that is, Breslau had an approximately stationary population. After some adjustments and smoothing of the data, Halley produced a combined table of male and female survivors. <br/><br/> Halley made several observations and used his life table to exemplify those observations. First, Halley looked at his table from a military point of view (perhaps because Graunt had done the same thing in 1662) and calculated "the proportion of men able to bear arms." He computed the number of people between the ages of 18 and 56, divided by two to estimate the number of men, and expressed the latter number as a fraction of the entire population of 34,000 people. Halley's approximate answer was "9/34" or about .26 of the population. Second, Halley computed survival odds between ages, giving an example of "377 to 68 or 5.5 to 1" for a man age 40 living to age 47. Third, Halley computed "the age, to which it is an even wager that a person of the age proposed shall arrive before he die." That is, Halley calculated the median additional years of life. He gave an example for a 30 year old. There are 531 survivors at that age and half that many between ages 57 and 58. Therefore, Halley's median was between 27 and 28 years. Fourth, Halley mentioned that the price of term insurance "ought to be regulated," and its price related to the odds of survival. He pointed out that the odds of one year survival were "100 to 1 that a man of 20 dies not in a year, and but 38 to 1 for a man of 50 years of age." Finally, Halley calculated life annuities with a 6% discount rate and provided the expected present values. He also extended these calculations to the joint life annuity of two or three lives. <br/><br/> Although Halley had broad interests, demography and actuarial science were quite far afield from his main areas of study. Hald (p. 141) has speculated that Halley himself analysed these data because, as the editor of the <i>Philosophical Transactions</i>, he was concerned about the <i>Transactions</i> publishing an adequate number of quality papers. Apparently, by doing the work himself, he ensured that one more high quality paper would be published. <br/><br/> A. Hald, <i>History of Probability and Statistics and their Applications before 1750</i>, 2003 (see pp. 131-141 for a detailed analysis of Halley's paper).. Small 4to (240 x 187 mm), pp. 596-610 in Philosophical Transactions, Numb. 196, January 1692/3. Complete issue, uncut, stitched as issued (pp. 579-622).

        Document Signed. 1662 privy seal warrant issued to future Jamaican privateer and Speaker of the Jamaica House of Assembly, Sir Thomas Whetstone

      [Southampton House, England], 21 april 1662. (JAMAICA, PRIVATEERS) 4to. 1 bifolium, (11-3/4 x 8-1/4 in.), accomplished entirely in manuscript. Docketed verso: "Sr Tho. Whetstones warrant for £100 out of the privy seals dormant. [indistinct initials follow].". Former fold lines, per usual; some surface soil to recto of document; heavy surface soil to verso of integral cognate; small perimeter chips and light distress. See ODNB; Marley, Pirates of the Americas, pp. 399-405 . According to David F. Marley&#39;s Pirates of the Americas, Sir Thomas Whetstone (1630/31-1668?) was a nephew of Oliver Cromwell "reduced from a Commonwealth naval Commodore into an impoverished West Indian rover, before dying in Spanish hands." Whetstone is described by ODNB as a naval officer and adventurer and a son of the favorite sister of the protectorate. Through nepotism per the protector&#39;s "misplaced patronage" Whetsone quickly rose through the naval ranks. He ascended from a volunteer on Penn&#39;s flagship in the 1654 expedition to Hispaniola, was given command of a ship on the return voyage home, and eventually commanded a squadron cruising the waters between Malta and Crete. Whetsone soon became a man of questionable integrity. He flouted orders, sold grain seriously needed to sustain the fleet for his own profit, quarreled with officers and, in general, showed high levels of insolence, incompetence, and dallied onshore, avoiding naval duties. Cromwell&#39;s death changed Whetstone&#39;s fortunes. When it became apparent to political forces that his usefulness as a pawn to control the naval fleet was insignificant, Whetsone returned to England at the restoration, impoverished and spent. By 1661 he was in a debtor&#39;s jail in Marshalsea where he became a royal nuisance by "bombarding" the government for employment and begging relatives for money. Finally, to put this embarrassment out of harm&#39;s way, the King agreed in April 1662 to give Whetstone £100 and to establish him as a Jamaican planter. The money was considered "royal bounty for his encouragement in settling a plantation in the Isle of Jamaica." Additionally, Whetsone was given twelve indentured men to help him establish a foothold in the New World. Here, then, is the material evidence that propels Whetstone towards his destiny in the West Indies. The document is signed "T. Southampton" by Sir Lawrence Tanfield, Earl of Southampton, Keeper of the Privy Seal. Addressed to and directing Sir Robert Pye, auditor of the exchequer, and indicating that he is to give Sir Thomas Whetstone £100 "- as of his Majesty&#39;s free gift for his incouragement [sic] in settling a plantation in the Island of Jamaica." With this document, a new chapter in Whetstone&#39;s life opened upon his arrival in Jamaica in 1662. As Marley notes, Whetstone&#39;s first actions in the West Indies was not to become a sedentary planter, but to be a privateer. With an Indian crew he began operating and raiding off the Cuban coast. Then, personally providing recent intelligence to the infamous Sir Christopher Myngs (1625-1666), an English admiral and pirate whose riotous atrocities with his buccaneers were legendary, Whetstone joined in Myngs&#39; 1662 sacking of Santiago de Cuba. Myngs was hated by the Spanish and famed for his unbridled cruelty. His atrocities next year in 1663 with pirates Henry Morgan and Abraham Blauvelt would alarm and forced King Charles II to call for a moratorium on further attacks. In the same year, Whetstone was likewise endeavoring: on record as commander of a 7-gun Spanish prize, manned by sixty souls, and noted as one of the "private ships of war belonging to Jamaica." In addition to his exploits at sea, Whetsone was heavily involved with the arrest and deposal of the Jamaican Speaker of Assembly, Samuel Long, on charges of treason in 1664. By 1666, Whetsone himself became Speaker of the Jamaica House of Assembly. Circa this period, he was captured by the Spanish on Providencia Island, carried as a prisoner to Portobelo, and then force-marched to Panama City where he was tossed in the dungeon. So angry were the Spanish at Whetstone&#39;s piratical depredations, the Governor Juan Perez de Guzman wrote to Madrid blaming the man for planning "all the damage done on these coasts." Whetsone died in Spanish captivity in 1667

        Vers du Ballet Royal dansé par leurs maiestez entre les Actes de la grande Tragedie de l&#39;Hercule Amoureux. Avec la Traduction du Prologue, & des Argumens de chaque Acte

      Paris: Robert Ballard. 1662. Small quarto. Full polished mid-tan calf with decorative spine in compartments gilt, dark red leather title label gilt, boards with gilt- ruled edges with decorative bird-like motif at corners, inner dentelles gilt. 1f. (title with woodcut device), pp. 3-7 (prologue), 51[!52] pp. With named cast lists for each of 18 entrées for Cavalli&#39;s Ercole amante. & & With fine woodcut headpiece and large decorative woodcut initial to prologue; occasional decorative initials and woodcut head- and tailpieces throughout. & & Binding somewhat worn, rubbed and bumped; hinges and joints cracking; small portion of lower spine lacking. Somewhat browned and foxed; some leaves trimmed just affecting tailpieces or signature designation in a few instances; small hole to pp. 29/30 just affecting text . First Edition. Malkin 9.1. Magriel p. 139. Slin p. 296. Not in Derra de Moroda.& & L&#39;Hercule Amoreux, a ballet with music by Lully, marked the occasion of the marriage of Louis XIV to Maria Theresa of Spain; it was first performed in Paris at the Tuileries on February 7, 1662.& & "This opera-ballet... was doubtless the most brilliant of all the festivities organized in honor of the king&#39;s marriage. The performance, before an immense crowd which filled the new theatre to capacity, lasted for six hours... But the magnificence of the new theatre, the extraordinary boldness of the machines and decorations, the numerous and sudden changes of scenes, and the sumptuousness of the costumes kept the audience in a constant state of excitement. They paid very little attention to the opera itself, but the ballet entries, particularly the one in which the king and queen danced together, surrounded by the most illustrious representatives of the nobility, threw them into ecstasy... The complete spectacle is a very happy fusion of two genres producting what we may call a &#39;court-opera-ballet&#39; in which the subjects of the ballet entries are closely related to the subject of the opera. The work is the result of the collaboration of at least six people: Camille Lillius wrote the Prologue, Buti wrote the libretto, Cavalli composed the music of the opera, Benserade devised the ballet entries and wrote the Vers, Lully composed the music of the ballet entries, and Gaspare Vigarani invented the machines." Silin: Benserade and his Ballets de Cour, p. 301.& & Ercole amante ("Hercules in Love"), an opera in a prologue and five acts by Francesco Cavalli to a libretto by Francesco Buti after Ovid&#146;s Metamorphoses, was commissioned by Cardinal Mazarin to mark the occasion of the wedding of Louis XIV to Maria Theresa of Spain. Cavalli (1602-1676) "was the most performed, and perhaps the most representative, composer of opera in the quarter-century after Monteverdi and was a leading figure, as both composer and performer, in Venetian musical life." Thomas Walker in Grove online& & A French poet, librettist and playwright, "[Benserade&#39;s] art of telling the truth about society people with elegance and dexterity was not only appreciated by the salons and developed in all the current poetic genres &#150; epigrams, madrigals, rondeaux, enigmas, portraits and epitaphs &#150; but was peculiarly suited to the court ballet. Benserade&#39;s popularity coincided with Louis XIV&#39;s career as a dancer of some talent, and between 1651 and 1669, when the king retired from the stage, Benserade wrote verses for 23 royal ballets." Margaret M. McGowan in Grove online

        Sculptura: Or the history and art of chalcography and engraving in copper

      J. C. for G. Beedle and T. Collins London: J. C. for G. Beedle, and T. Collins, 1662. First Mezzotint Published in England?The Fairfax Murray Copy Evelyn, John (1620-1706). Sculptura: Or the history, and art of chalcography and engraving in copper to which is annexed a new manner of engraving, or mezzo tinto, communicated by his Highness Prince Rupert to the author of this treatise. 8vo. [32], 148, [3, advertisement]pp. Engraved frontispiece by A. Hertochs after Evelyn, engraving on p. 121, folding mezzotint by Prince Rupert of the Rhine (1619-82). London: J. C. for G. Beedle, T. Collins and J. Crook, 1662. 168 x 106 mm. Contemporary panelled calf, gilt, rebacked, endpapers renewed. Light wear at spine. Light spotting and browning, offsetting on title from frontispiece, title-page with two horizontal rules in ink made at an early date. The Charles Fairfax Murray copy, with his bookplate; bookplate, duplicate stamp and perforated stamp (on leaf A2) of the Library of Congress; formerly owned by Leonard B. Schlosser (acquired via Marlborough Rare Books from his sale, Sotheby?s New York, 18 June 1992, lot 456); bookplate of Arthur and Charlotte Vershbow. The Fairfax Murray Copy of the First Edition of the First Book to Announce the Mezzotint Process, and containing the First Mezzotint published in England. This first English mezzotint, known as ?The Head of the Executioner,? was executed by Prince Rupert of the Rhine, Charles II?s cousin, who had brought the mezzotint technique with him when he settled in England after the Restoration of the English monarchy in 1660. From Evelyn?s diary and papers preserved in the British Library we know that Evelyn first learned of the mezzotint technique from Rupert on 24 February 1661. A few weeks later, under the date 13 March 1660/1, Evelyn wrote in his diary that ?This afternoon Prince Rupert shew?d me with his owne hands the new way of graving call?d mezzo tinto, which afterwards by his permission I publish?d in my History of Chalcography; this set so many artists on worke that they soone arriv?d to that perfection it is since come, emulating the tenderest miniatures? (quoted in Keynes, p. 116). Although Evelyn mistakenly credited Rupert with the invention of mezzotint, the prince actually learned the technique from Ludwig von Siegen, a German officer who invented the mezzotint process in the 1640s (Evelyn corrected the error in his Numismata [1697]). It was through John Evelyn and his Sculptura that the mezzotint process came to be highly regarded as a technique for the graphic arts in England. However, Rupert and Evelyn conspired to keep details of the process secret, lest it be ?prostituted? at too cheap a rate. Complete copies with the mezzotint are rare, since the print was often removed from the volume by print collectors. This copy was once in the collection of Charles Fairfax Murray (1849-1919), the noted English painter, dealer, collector, benefactor and art historian. Keynes, Evelyn 33. Wing E-3513.

        Nautical Manuscript Document Linked to Tobacco, Slavery, and the Calvert Barons - Maryland&#39;s Founding Family

      1662. Long Island Point, Baltimore, Maryland, 1662. Signed Manuscript note penned for Captain Miles Cooke by the ship&#39;s purser William Gordon, whilst on Cooke&#39;s ship &#39;The Maryland Merchant&#39; having returned from a tobacco trade voyage, granting permission to Captain Isaac Tully to disembark the vessel. Single leaf, laid watermarked paper, written recto only, measuring approximately 21 x 14 cm. Creasing, mild foxing, otherwise very good condition, noteworthy for its age and time at sea. Protocol such as this requisition for boarding or disembarking a vessel was common practice at the time. Addressed to Capt. Isaac Tully Esq., the note reads as follows: "Sir, Upon application made by Capt. Cooke You are hereby permitted to come on shore till further Order I am Sir with penonal esteem Your humble servt. William Gordon [To:] Capt. Isaac Tully Esq. Saturday, 5 oClock P.M." Captain Miles Cooke was a British Rear-Admiral, involved for several years as Merchant in Trans-Atlantic trade between England and the Province of Maryland, which was then a proprietary colony of the English Lord Baltimore. Cooke&#39;s ship was named &#39;The Maryland Merchant". In 1672 Cooke was discharged from some seafaring business in which Charles Calvert, 3rd Baron Baltimore, was also implicated pending either the verdict of another trial or the state of his vessel. Cooke died four years later in 1676. Resident of Rediffe, Surrey, on 26 February 1661 Captain Miles Cooke married Dorothy Underwood, of Whitechapel, Middlesex. Together they lived in Talbot County, Maryland at "Cooke&#146;s Hope", which had been granted to him in 1659, and was located next to Thomas Hutchinson, tanner, of Talbot Co., Maryland. Cooke was granted the land in the same year that he seized the St. George of Bantry. In 1682 John Edmondson, merchant to Thomas Hutchinson, bought under the seal of Samuel Cooke, heir of Miles Cook and the seals of Henry and William Coursey, attorneys for the widow of Miles Cook, 200 acres called "Cookes Mannor." Captain Isaac Tully was also involved in the trade, and in despatching letters and goods between Calvert family members between the UK and America. As seen in the Calvert papers, held by the Maryland Historical Society, Cooke and Tully worked hand in hand, most likely the latter employed by the former. Charles Calvert, 3rd Baron Baltimore (1637-1715), (grandson of George Calvert, 1st Baron Baltimore, founder of Maryland) was governor of Maryland from 1661 to 1676, and inherited the colony in 1675 upon the death of his father, then becoming second proprietor. He was heavily involved in trying to mend the growing economic problems of Maryland&#39;s tobacco industry, working directly with merchants such as Cooke. His legacy also entails an injurious decision which perpetuated long-standing slavery. Following are excerpts from letters by the latter mentioned Charles Calvert to his father, Cecilius Calvert, 2nd Baron Baltimore, endorsed by Captain Miles Cooke, published in &#39;The Calvert Papers, Issues 28-30" which illuminate a voyage and subsequent scandal regarding a shipment of inferior tobacco in 1662, involving the two parties, Cooke and Tully.. Signed.

        Metamorphosis et Historia Naturalis Insectorum Vol I. & II

      Medioburgi [Middleburgh]: Jacobum Fierensium, 1662 An extremely rare early work on the metamorphosis of insects. Jan Goedart originally wrote in Dutch and these 2 volumes are the first published translations of his work. Vol I is hand coloured. Vol I was translated by Johannis de Mey and Vol II by Paul Veezaerdt. A third volume was published after his death. Goedart set up, observed and documented a series of &#39;experiments&#39; which showed that insects change their appearance - and that the egg, the caterpillar and the butterfly can be the same animal rather than spontaneously appearing. These 2 volumes are in what appears to be contemporary full leather. They are not matching but they have been recently repaired to reback the spine on Vol I and and provide a new spine to Vol II, and they have matching title labels. Vol I is an exceptionally rare hand coloured copy. With title page in red and black inks and with scorpion design; hand coloured decorative title page; preface with decorative initial capital 15pp; Commentary by W Quirinus R 3pp; dedication by Joannis de May with decorative heraldic design 8pp; half title; text and plates 236pp. With 63 plates - occasionally separately numbered images on the same plate. The binding has raised bands and the remains of gilt tooling on the spine and some gilt bordering to the boards. It is sound but with scuffing and wear. Internally the volume is in very good condition. There is a little age browning, the odd spot and nibbled page edge, but the plate colouring is bright, and the text clear and clean. Vol II published by Jacobum Fierensium and Johannem Martinum in 1667 in Middleburgh, has plain plates. These are not as decorative to look at, but do show the fine quality of the engravings.

        Sententie gepronuncieert den 25 jan. 1662 tot Amsterdam iegens Isaac Coeymans, Koopman burger der selver stadt

      Rotterdam: Floris Willemsen, 1662. (DUTCH WEST INDIA COMPANY) 4to. 7 pp. Sewn. Slightly age-darkened, but sound. Asher 315 . A very rare pamphlet related to the Dutch West India Company and its settlements in Guinea, offering a glimpse of the growing competition among European powers for the slave trade between West Africa and the West Indies. Competition was particularly sharp between the powerful Dutch West India Company and the Danish African Company, which had also recently established settlments in Guinea. Against this background emerges the strange story of one Isaac Coymans, an Amsterdam merchant who plotted to murder the settlers of a Dutch colony and turn it over to the Danish Crown. He was tried and convicted, and this rare pamphlet publishes the sentence of the court: Coymans was imprisoned for six years, banished for life from the 7 Dutch Provinces, and fined 20,000 florins. It is rare: OCLC locates only one copy in the United States (Harvard)

        The History of the Worthies of England.

      London: Printed by J.G.W.L. and W.G. 1662 . First Edition [with the Index also in 1st. edition] Folio, engr. portrait by D. Loggan, + 3 leaves (title, Dedication, To the Reader) + 494 leaves (text) + 6 leaves (Index), light waterstain on title some foxing (occasionally heavy) and browning throughout (as usual), otherwise a very good copy, bound in full antique-style calf, 3-line fillet borders in blind, morocco label on spine. The pagination in this work is exceedingly erratic, and the signatures are not much better. For example sigs. E and K are only 3 leaves, Rr, Ss, and Zzz[z] are not required at all, and many others are 2 leaves instead of 4. A very full collation, both by signature and by pagination, is given by Strickland Gibson with which the present copy has been carefully compared. It is warranted complete. Some copies contain an index which was first printed by Olive Payne in 1737 on 6 leaves [as in the present copy], and reprinted by W. Pickering on 5 leaves c. 1825 "The Worthies is among other things a dictionary of national biography, a series of county histories, a topographical and historical gazetteer, a guide-book, and a dictionary of proverbs..... Fuller was conscientious, according to his light, in trying to check authorities. Besides, he jogged indefatigably about the country to inspect public records, manuscripts, places, and buildings, and to question natives and surviving relatives... The Worthies is a lineal descendant of the mediaeval encyclopedias. Apart from the lists of sheriffs and gentry, we skip at our risk, for Fuller's best goods may be under the counter. Thus we read, to the greater glory of God, about the Vicar of Bray; the use of malt to make drink in Derbyshire ('a master-piece indeed'); the marriage customs of Lapland; Devonshire strawberries and cream; the Dunmow flitch...." [D.Bush: English Literature in the Earlier 17th. Century. O.U.P. 1945.] "But it is of persons that he [Fuller] writes most delightfully. His anecdotes are full of lightning sketches of Elizabethan and Jacobean characters caught off their guard...." [W. Addison: Worthy Doctor Fuller. ] A rich fund of information and anecdote, still entertaining today, Fuller's Worthies is the unacknowledged source of a surprising number of phrases and fables current to this day, perhaps the most famous being the story of Sir Walter Raleigh laying down his cloak for Queen Elizabeth. Fuller is credited with coining the word 'biographist' to describe himself. Wing F 2440Gibson, Strickland (editor): Bibliography of...Thomas Fuller in Papers of Oxford. Bib. Soc. 1935 vol.

        Difiniciones de la Orden y Cavalleria de Alcantara con la Historia y Origen de Ella

      1662 [colophon 1663]. Madrid. Diego Diaz de la Carrera. In 4to. Contemporary full vellum, spine lettered in ink, recased, very nicely done, endpapers renewed, very attractive binding. A remarkably fresh and clean copy, only a few leaves browned, else a perfect copy. Second edition. Engraved title page with portrait of Phillip II by Pedro de Villafranca. One of the most important Chivalry Orders of Spain, the Order of Alc?ara was founded in 1154 in Leon under the name of Orden de San Juli?de Pereiro. It´s history is deeply linked to that of the Muslims in Spain. In the early 13th century, the defense of the city of Alc?ara was passed on from Calatrava to the recently founded Order of San Juli?by Alphonse IX. The relevance of this Orders &ndash;along with that of Santiago and Calatrava-, is mainly military, this, because the middle ages lacked of standing armies and this Orders provided that. In fact, the constant defense of cities from the Muslims was usually provided by these Orders. Bound &ndash;as often- with Privilegia Militae Sancti Iuliani de Pereiro. The Orders, besides the obvious military character, also were Religious Orders, and amongst their goals, the preservation and defense of the Christian faith was found. Illustrated with an oval portrait of Phillip II on title page and a full page image of the Virgin. Salva, 1590.
