        Tractatus Physiologicus de Pulchritudine. Juxta ea quae de Sponsa in Canticis Canticorum mystice pronunciantur.

      Bruxelles, Francisci Foppens, 1662. Small 8vo. Later modest half cloth (ab. 1800). Engraved half-page illustration to title-page and 28 half-page engravings in the text (phrenological portraits of women and animals). Light browning and a small spot to title-page, as well as a small marginal repair (no loss). A faint dampstain to inner upper margins of the last 4 leaves. Otherwise clean. An old stamp to front free end-paper, to verso of title-page, and to inside of back board. Small handwritten numbers to bottom of title-page. (8), 60 pp.. Scarce first and only edition of this highly interesting treatise on female physiognomy and beauty, which is important in being one of the few sources from this period that provide us with information on many cultural phenomena that have to do with beauty and the role of women in society, such as the mythologies of skin color. The work places itself in a tradition that goes back to della Porta's work on physiognomy from 1586; as Porta, Vaenius relies on the dual axis of humoral theory and animal analogies as means of determining mental states and traits. The emphasis is on fixed facial structures which reveal to us the mental and intellectual states of the person. Vaenius, however, has a different aim with his work. He not only wishes to explain how to determine human characters from facial structures, he wishes to determine the very essence of female beauty and does so by explaining and depicting proportional structures as well as explaining phenomena that are of great importance to our understanding of the social culture of the period, explaining for instance the place of black people within this framework. The physiognomic explanations are accompanied by fine engravings (one for instance showing a black woman, others showing animal heads next to human female ones).Apart from its cultural importance and singular character (Brunet: "le titre de l'ouvrage en indique la singularité"), the work is renowned for these beautiful, delicate engravings (see e.g. Charles Nodier's praise as well as Brunet's) that are quite unlike any other illustrations we know of. Brunet V: 1026. - Bibliotheca Osleriana: 5534

        Nova et Accuratissima Totius Terrarum Orbis Tabula

      Amsterdam: Jan Blaeu, [1662]. Copper-engraved map, with original colour. Latin text on verso. Skillful marginal repair to center fold. 19 1/2 x 24 inches. An aesthetic chord of triumph and the culmination of Dutch cartography. This is the new world map prepared by Blaeu for the eleven volume Atlas Maior of 1662. Unlike its predecessor with its marginal city views and native peoples, this is a double hemispheric map with the classical gods that personify each planet and Apollo, the Sun. Each planetary deity is portrayed with his astrological attributes: Mercury with flying cap and caduceus; Venus with cupid at her side; Mars armed for battle; Jupiter with thunderbolts; and Saturn brooding and holding a flag of a six pointed star (a symbol in Saturn worship). Just below to the left and right are portraits of Claudius Ptolemy and Amerigo Vespucci. At the base are the four allegorical personifications of the seasons, each on a chariot. All of which place Earth in a larger astrological and temporal context, and make the map an exaltation of the Western European achievements. This was the key to Blaeu's Great Atlas: the culminating work of 100 years of Dutch cartography and 300 years of European seafaring. It is surely one of the most beautiful world maps ever made. Shirley, The Mapping of the World, 428; van der Krogt, Atlantes 0001:2B.

        Maritima Brasiliae Universae

      Amsterdam, 1662. Copperplate engraving with hand color Framed size: 32 3/8" x 36 3/8"; Sheet size: 21" x 24 ¾" ca. 1662 This separately issued and rare coastal map is derived from Joan Blaeu's original, multi-sheet, 1647 wall map of Dutch Brazil. Blaeu's complete work was based on new topographical information gathered by Dutch explorers and a 1643 map produced by Georg Marcgraf. Marcgraf's original map not only featured a depiction of the northeast coast of Brazil (an area controlled by the Dutch West Indies Company from 1524 to 1654), but stunning illustrations by Frans Post of lavish sugar mill plantations and scenes of aboriginal peoples and Dutch colonists interacting peacefully. This particular map represents the exquisite lower-left sheet of Blaeu's original wall map and was most likely separately re-engraved, re-titled, and re-issued along with a number of Blaeu's other Brazilian coastal sheets, for the 1662 publication of Atlas Maior. .

        Hudibra, First, Second, Third and Subsequent Parts. First Edition, First Issue

      Butler, Samuel. "Hudibras. The First Part. Written in the time of the late Wars". [4], 268 pages. First Authorized Edition, first issue, with "Saint" in imprint spelled out in full; errata is present, lacking the imprimatur leaf (dated Nov. 11, 1662), and all textual errors uncorrected. London: Printed by J.G. for Richard Marriot, 1663. [bound with] "Hudibras. The Second Part. By the Authour of the First". [4], 216 pages. Also, third part dated 1678. Bound in exceptionally fine binding and in very good condition with the bookplates of Daniel Henry Holmes, an avid book collector. This edition certainly is one of the rarest being that it is a first issue. A pirate copy came out the year before in 1662 and all proceeds from the sale of the book by the thief were recovered by Butler. Collation is as follows: [2 blank], TP, A3-8, B8-I8, K-R8, 2nd TP, B-I8, K-O8, P4, 3rd TP, A-I8, K-R8, S7, [2 Blank].Hudibras by Samuel Butler is a critique of the English Civil War and pokes at the Puritans and their military zeal to spread the word of God with Bible and Pike. This attractive printing and wonderfully bound copy of Butler's mock epic in octosyllabic couplets, its three parts first published in 1663, 1164 and 1678. Modeled after Don Quixote, the work satarizes the hypocrisy and self-seeking of the Presbyterians and Independents represented by the title character, Hudibras and his servant Ralpho, demonstrating the pairs, greed, stupidity, cowardice and duplicity. Butler, a Colonel in the Cromwellian army is involved in any number of various comic misadventures and Butler is squarely pointing at Oliver Cromwell and his lot as Butler was and remained a confirmed Royalist and Anglican (King Henry VIII's Anglican Church).This mock epic became the rage of its time and was followed by nearly 27 editions that included, later engraved illustrations to highlight the comedic adventures of the two. In the end of this volume are also found the Letter from the Knight to his Lady and a corresponding letter from the Lady to the Knight.

        Magia Universalis Naturæ et Artis, sive, Recondita naturalium & artificialium rerum scientia, cujus ope per variam applicationem activorum cum passivis, admirandorum effectuum spectacula, abditarumque inventionum miracula, ad varios humanæ vitæ usus, eruuntur. Opus quadripartitum

      Four finely engraved frontis. & 91 engraved plates (some folding and/or double-page). Some music printing in Vol. II. Four vols. Small 4to, cont. richly blindstamped pigskin over wooden boards, sides richly stamped in a panel design, each upper cover stamped "R.W.A.T." & dated "1662", orig. clasps & catches. Würzburg: H. Pigrin [Vol. I], J. Hertz [Vols. II & III], & heirs of J.G. Schönwetter, [Vol. IV], 1657-57-58-59. First edition, and a very fine and complete set in matching bindings of contemporary pigskin over beveled wooden boards, dated 1662, with the original catches and clasps. Complete sets in such fine condition are rarely encountered on the market. This is Schott's greatest and most complete work on the wonders and marvels of science and technology. Much of the work is concerned with applying science and mechanics to art, music, theater, cryptography, etc. Volume I is devoted to optics and optical phenomena, and deals with projection, illumination, perspective, optical illusions, the camera obscura, the telescope and the microscope. The second volume is devoted to acoustics and phonetics, music theory and instruments, and has a number of ingenious musical devices driven by water, wind, weights and springs, etc. Volume III is concerned with mechanics, statics, hydrostatics, pneumatics, and their various applications. This volume includes a report on Guericke's experiments with the vacuum (p. 604) several years before the publication of his Experimenta Nova in 1672. The final volume deals with magnetism and magnetic devices, with further chapters on cryptography, pyrotechnics, physiognomy, chiromancy, divination, etc. Gaspar Schott (1608-66), a German Jesuit, studied under Athanasius Kircher and was his chief collaborator, disciple, and publicist. He "became the center of a network of correspondence as other Jesuits, as well as lay experimenters and mechanicians, wrote to inform him of their inventions and discoveries. Schott exchanged several letters with Guericke, seeking to draw him out by suggesting new problems, and published his later investigations. He also corresponded with Huygens and was the first to make Boyle's work on the air pump widely known in Germany... "Schott's chief works, the Magia universalis and the two companion volumes...are huge, uncritical collections, mines of quaint information in which significant nuggets must be extracted from a great deal of dross. Like many of his time, Schott believed that the principles of nature and art are best revealed in their exceptions. This makes him a useful source on the history of scientific instruments and mechanical technology."-D.S.B., XII, pp. 210-11. A very crisp set. ❧ Ashworth, Jesuit Science in the Age of Galileo, p. 27-"The seventeenth century offered no better source on how to make a cipher machine, a magnetic clock, or a burning lens." Ferguson II, p 340. .

        Das von Moskowitischen Zaar Alexei Michaelewiz am nähern, mit mehr als 100000 Mann hart-belägert gewesen- und durch Gottes sonderbaren Beystand erhaltene Riga, Gott zu Lobe, ihren Beschützeren zu Ehren und ihm Selbsten, wie auch anderen, zum Heyl-bringenden Gedächtnisse beschrieben von Ernst Müllern.

      Giessen, Anton Utz, 1662. Folio. 24 s. Tagen ur band. Ur Ericsbergs bibliotek. Enstaka fläckar, något större på s. 3. VD17 1:639990B. Utkom även i kvarto. Lång hyllningsvers, med tryckt dedikation till Magnus Gabriel De la Gardie och Simon Gründel Helmfeld. Medan Karl X Gustav var upptagen nere i Polen passade tsar Aleksej på att anfalla de svenska provinserna Livland och Ingermanland. Anfallet inleddes den 4 juli 1656 och Livland erövrades snabbt men vid Riga tog det stopp. En belägring inleddes den 22 augusti men trots tidvis kraftig beskjutning var staden aldrig allvarligt hotad, då sjövägen aldrig blev avskuren. Den 5 oktober avbröts belägringen och de ryska trupperna retirerade. Magnus Gabriel De la Gardie residerade vid tiden i Riga som generalguvernör och högste befälhavare över Livland. Generalmajoren Simon Grundel Helmfeld var hans närmaste officer och, till skillnad från sin överordnade, militärt kompetent. Ernst Müller (1627-81) från Marburg var präst i Giessen men hade dessförinnan följt svenska armén som fältpräst. Han skrev även en "Kriegs- und Friedens-Posaune", 1662

        A collection of 7 double page maps of Denmark, 1 double page map of Hven, 4 double page maps and plans of Uraniborg and 10 single page prints of instruments. Latin text verso.

      Amsterdam 1662 In the history of the house of Blaeu this Tycho Brahe suite of prints is unique. Tycho Brahe is one of the truly great figures in the history of astronomy. The founder of the company Willem Janszoon Blaeu (1571 - 1638) studied cartographic science for six months in the early 1590's underTycho Brahe at the latter's observatory at Uraniborg on the Danish island of Hven. As a tribute, William's son Joan published in 1659 and later in his monumental "Atlas Major" this set of maps, plans, views and instruments relating to Tycho Brahe. Also included in this collection are the seven maps of Denmark by Blaeu. A complete set including the extra maps and not contained in an atlas, this is a collection seldom offered for sale.. All maps and prints are in an excellent condition. "Old" Koeman Bl. 56, William B.
