Court, Pieter de la].
Amsterdam, Jan Cyprian vander Gracht, 1662. 8vo. (16), 267, (5) pp. - (Bound after) II: [The same]. Historie der gravelike regering in Holland. [No place or date, ca 1662]. (16), 264 pp. Title-page engraved. Includes, from p. 207 onwards (with separate half-title): Grondig berigt van 't Nederlands oproer, zo onder de hertogin van Parma, als den hertog van Alba. Rebound in slightly oversized full vellum. First edition of "Interest", the author's chief work on political economy: an analysis of the miraculous economic success of Holland, the leading province of the Dutch Republic. De la Court establishes the economic and political principles on which that success was based, identifying free competition and the republican form of government as the leading factors contributing to the wealth and power of his home country. The book still counts as one of the 17th and 18th centuries' preeminent textbooks of economic and political freedom. - Bound with this is a variant edition of same author's anti-monarchist history of the Netherlands, which appeared in the same year. The Dutch economist and businessman Pieter de la Court (1618-85) pioneered modern thinking about the economic importance of free competition and was an uncompromising advocate of republicanism. - Inner hinges broken, but still an attractive volume. I: Wildenberg 1041. - II: Wildenberg 1052. OCLC 914270513. [Attributes: First Edition]

Den Herstelden Prins tot Stadt-houder ende Capiteyn Generaal vande Vereenighde Nederlanden, ten dienst ende luyster vande loffelijcke en de wel geformeerde Republijck vande Geunieerde Provincien, &c. tegens de boekjens onlangs uyt gegeven met den naem van Interest van Hollandt, ende stadt-houderlijcke regeringe in Hollandt ... Amsterdam: Voor Joan. Cyprianus vander Gracht, 1663. Small 8vo (15.5 cm; 6.125"). [16], 122, [4], [2 (blank)] pp. Court (1618-85) and his brother Johan (1622-60) were the sons of Protestant émigrés from Flanders who settled in Leiden around 1613. Both were political and economic theorists; during their lifetimes Pieter was held to be more capable of the two. This work circulated in manuscript and was first published in Amsterdam in 1662 without the author's permission and with alterations and the addition of two important chapters and part of another by Johan de Wit. A later edition was published under the title Aanwysing der heilsame politike gronden en maximen van de republike van Holland en West-Vriesland, and that edition was translated into English as The true interest and political maxims of the republick of Holland and West-Friesland (London, 1702). Interest van Holland is Pieter Court's most famous and important work. In this critical analysis of the economic success of the Dutch Republic he ascribes the rise of Holland to a combination of free competition and free (i.e., republican) government. It clearly was a republican manifesto, so on one side of the … [Cliquez ci-dessous pour une description complète]

MORE, HENRY.
Printed by James Flesher, for William Morden, Book-seller in Cambridge, 1662. "Henry More, (1614-1687) ""English philosopher, one of the foremost representatives of the school of Cambridge Platonists. His writings emphasized the mystical and theosophic phases of that philosophy, and as he grew older mysticism dominated his writings. Newton studied under him, and his concept of space and time as ""the sense organs of God"" greatly influenced Newton's theory of absolute space and time.""--""More, Henry."" The Columbia Encyclopedia, 6th ed. 2014. Encyclopedia.com. 4 Mar. 2015 . ""In his day More came to be regarded as one of England's leading contemporary philosophers. One of the first proponents of Cartesianism, he attacked Thomas Hobbes and Baruch Spinoza and was an enthusiast for the new science of Galileo and the Royal Society. His own philosophy owes much to Plato and Plotinus and is largely dedicated to the defense of religious belief against the twin forces of skepticism and atheism.""--Hutton, Sarah: ""More, Henry (1614-1687)."" Europe, 1450 to 1789: Encyclopedia of the Early Modern World. 2004. Encyclopedia.com. 4 Mar. 2015 . ""In theology More was a moderate latitudinarian, known for piety and an almost saintly nature. He wrote extensively against sectarians and enthusiasts, for their uncharitable doctrinal wrangling and their depreciation of reason in religion, and against the Roman Catholic Church, on the usual contemporary grounds. He concerned himself particularly with the interpretation of prophetic and apocalyptic Scriptures. A factor in More's return to philos … [Cliquez ci-dessous pour une description complète]

1 fólio em pergaminho (de 34x43 cm). Com 24 linhas manuscritas a uma só mão, muito firme e legível. Fólio manuscrito do lado rugoso do pergaminho (sem conteúdo manuscrito do lado liso) e com quatro dobras consecutivas de forma a ser transportado como uma carta. Este pergaminho foi redigido sobre uma versão antiga do conhecido 'papel selado', pago previamente antes da sua escritura, e ao qual acrescem os emolumentos descritos no texto. Apresenta no canto superior esquerdo as armas do rei, a data e o valor no escudo, e também por extenso: «Sello primeiro de duzentos e quarenta R[eis]». Trata-se de uma raríssima autorização do tribunal superior da Corte de Lisboa para o uso e porte de uma espingarda com fechos de pederneira, assinado pelo Desembargador Doutor Miguel Zuzarte de Azevedo, Fidalgo da Casa Real, passada a Domingos Ferreira Soares, morador no Lugar de Arrencada, e proprietário fundiário. O documento foi redigido por André Dias (Escrivão do Crime da Corte na dita Casa da Suplicação) e manuscrito por Simão de Miranda em 21 de Outubro de 1662. Em termos históricos, podemos verificar que o recurso a armas era comum neste período conturbado. Em 1662 Portugal era governado pelo Rei D. Afonso VI e encontrava-se em guerra com Espanha. No território português encontrava-se o exército de Dom João de Áustria, enviado pelo seu pai o Rei Filipe IV de Espanha e o exército do Marechal Frederick Schomberg enviado por Carlos II de Inglaterra. A principal batalha da Guerra da Restauração - a batalha de Montes Claros - ainda viria a ocorrer no ano de 1665. No século dezasseis as armas … [Cliquez ci-dessous pour une description complète]

I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. 1662 VIRGIL Roman Poetry AENEID Classical Literature ILLUSTRATED French & Latin Publius Vergilius Maro (70 BC -19 BC), usually called Virgil or Vergil in English, was an ancient Roman poet of the Augustan period. He is known for three major works of Latin literature, the Eclogues (or Bucolics), the Georgics, and the epic Aeneid. A number of minor poems, collected in the Appendix Vergiliana, are sometimes attributed to him. The Aeneid is a Latin epic poem, written by Virgil between 29 and 19 BC, that tells the legendary story of Aeneas, a Trojan who travelled to Italy, where he became the ancestor of the Romans.

BETHUNE, Maximilien de Duke of Sully
1662. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. "A very valuable memoire of the history of the reign of Henry IV" Maximlien de Bethune was a 16th-century French statesman who was the first Duke of Sully. Most known for his service under Henry IV of France, Sully left a collection of memoirs which is now a valuable and important work on the history of France during the reign of Henry the Great. Even though 'Memoires' contains many fictitious stories, it is still recognized for its accuracy and portrayal of European royalty. The most controversial section of 'Memoires' is Sully's vision of a utopian society designed for all of Europe. He envisioned a Christian republic that was governed by a 'Very Christian Council' in which all differences were resolved and a military was complete removed. Some scholars even claim that Sully's plan helped establish what would become the current European Union. According to Tulard, this work is a "very valuable memoire of the history of the reign of Henry IV." These four volumes are uniformly bound in beautiful leather, even though the four tomes are from two different printings (see below). [Attributes: First Edition]

SANSON D'ABBELVILLE, Nicolas
Paris: chez l'Autheur, 1662. SECOND EDITION. Complete with 15 double-page engraved maps hand-colored in outline. Contemporary mottled calf, small repair on corners; an excellent copy with only an occasional toning on a few text leaves. Although deemed a second edition, this is actually a reissue of the first with a different title page. The maps of the American continent include: North America, New Canada, or New France, Florida, Mexico, Guadalajara, New Mexico, California, Audience of Guatimala, the Isles Antilles, & Les Lucayes et Les Caribes, South America, Terre Ferme Roy de Grenade, Guiane, Guiane et Caribane, Peru and the course of the Amazon, Chile, Brazil (whose coast is possessed by the Portuguese), Paraguay, Detroit de Magellan, Terre et Isles Magellanicques. Each map indicates that Sanson created it but bears the address of Pierre Mariete. The explanatory commentary contains information describing the country, customs, and more. Just prior to publication of this series of works (which also included atlases of Europe and Africa), Sanson formed a partnership with Pierre Mariette, an engraver and printseller. Pursuant to their contract, Sanson drew the maps and Mariette engraved and printed them. Each maintained possession of half of the plates, and they were allowed to exchange and/or buy from one another. Some bore the address of Sanson, others Mariette. But Sanson allowed Mariette to store his plates, and Mariette without prior agreement started placing his address on Sanson's plates. In time, a lawsuit which had been prosecuted was settled when both di … [Cliquez ci-dessous pour une description complète]

Five raised bands and red gilt title-label. 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.

1662. En Madrid a 3 de Abril de 1669.- 6 hojas; In Folio (30 x 21 cm).- Al folio seis le falta todo un ángulo que afortumadamente coincide con la parte del mismo que está en blanco sin texto.- Es un documento muy interesante en el que aparecen artículo por artículo todos los detalles de este tratado de paz entre los ingleses y argelinos del siglo XVII, cuando los primeros estaban hostigando con su armada a la flota española y a todas las plazas que España poseía en el Mediterraneo africano y peninsular, incluído y sobre todo Gibraltar. Esto les daba mucha maniobra para poner en riesgo todas las posesiones españolas por los privilegios que adquirían en aguas mediterráneas, lo que disparó las alertas de la reina regente que intentó, a través de su Consejo de Guerra, poner todo el remedio posible para refuerzo y defensa de las posesiones españolas en esta zona. A modo de ejemplo transcribimos parcialmente los tres primeros artículos. Artículo 1: "Que de oy en adelante y para siempre jamas ayga buena y firme Paz entre SMgd de la Gran Bretaña y el Baxa Juan y Gon[zal]ez de Argel y los Dominios pertenecientes y que las naos y subditos de cada parte no se haran ofensa ni injuria entre unos ni otros tratandose con todo el respeto y amistad posible y que puedan las naos de dicho Rey de la Gran Bretaña o de alguno de sus subditos entrar libremente en el puerto de Argel y comerciar como en otros tiempos...".

BLAEU, Johannes.
Johannes Blaeu, 1662]. The first printed map to depict Manhattan as an island. Double-page engraved map, with contemporary hand-colour in part and in outline, Latin text on verso. Blaeu's important map of New England, based on Adriean Block's manuscript map of 1614, first published in 1635 in Blaeu's 'Theatrum Orbis Terrarum', 1635. This example was issued in the first edition of the 'Atlas Maior' of 1662. The map covers the east coast of North America from Virginia to Quebec, showing New York and Long Island down past Cape Cod. Block (1567 – 1627), a fur trader and navigator, explored the coastal area and river valleys between Cape Cod and Manhattan, resulting in some of the most important advancements in the mapping of the east coast at the time. Block's map was the first to delineate Manhattan as an island, and also the first to name "Manhates" and "Niev Nederlandt". Blaeu's map is significant as the first printed map to show these discoveries, and also as the first to be embellished with depictions of otters, beavers and polecats. The map also includes scenes of Indian natives paddling their canoes to the shore. Burden discusses the map in depth in his 'The Mapping of North America': "It has been noted that the time difference between 1614, the date of the manuscript, and Blaeu's map whose first appearance is in 1635, appears long for such an important advance. It would seem highly feasible that Blaeu, who published many separately issued maps, would have wanted to produce one like this sooner. However, evidence points to the fact that it could not have been made before … [Cliquez ci-dessous pour une description complète]

The world's first "biographist" 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.

Contemporary mottled calf, small repair on corners; an excellent copy with only an occasional toning on a few text leaves. Although deemed a second edition, this is actually a reissue of the first with a different title page. The maps of the American continent include: North America, New Canada, or New France, Florida, Mexico, Guadalajara, New Mexico, California, Audience of Guatimala, the Isles Antilles, & Les Lucayes et Les Caribes, South America, Terre Ferme Roy de Grenade, Guiane, Guiane et Caribane, Peru and the course of the Amazon, Chile, Brazil (whose coast is possessed by the Portuguese), Paraguay, Detroit de Magellan, Terre et Isles Magellanicques. Each map indicates that Sanson created it but bears the address of Pierre Mariete. The explanatory commentary contains information describing the country, customs, and more. Just prior to publication of this series of works (which also included atlases of Europe and Africa), Sanson formed a partnership with Pierre Mariette, an engraver and printseller. Pursuant to their contract, Sanson drew the maps and Mariette engraved and printed them. Each maintained possession of half of the plates, and they were allowed to exchange and/or buy from one another. Some bore the address of Sanson, others Mariette. But Sanson allowed Mariette to store his plates, and Mariette without prior agreement started placing his address on Sanson's plates.

There is text in Latin to all the plates except 4. ¶ First printing of the magnificent Hven-Brahe section of Blaeu's Atlas Major, considered "the greatest and finest atlas ever published".Tycho Brahe educated Joan Blaeu's father Willem Blaeu, who visited Brahe's Island Hven for a period of six months in 1595, learning, among other things, triangulation; - the map here of Hven became the first triangulated map and is furthermore probably Blaeu's first map. He devoted a part of volume one of his fine atlas to Tycho Brahe, and this magnificent part constitutes the engravings depicting Tycho Brahe's Island Hven, his buildings, castles and astronomical instruments.Blaeu shows his devotion to and appreciation for his master in his referral to Tycho Brahe as his "preceptor" in legend on his celestial globes. The beautiful depictions of Brahe's astronomical instruments are copied by Blaeu from Brahe's "Astronomia instaurata Mechanica" and put into a larger scale here.

(AUTOGRAFI)- LOUIS XIV
Lettera originale su 4 facciate (27 x 20), in nitida scrittura corsiva, firmata "Louis", "escript a Paris le XIIe jour d'octobre 1662". Traccia delle antiche piegature e qualche macchia gialla, ma buon esemplare. (7810) Lettera importante, indirizzata da Luigi XIV al "Cardinal Decano", in merito agli incidenti provocati il 20 agosto 1662 dalla intemperanza della Guardia Corsa, al servizio del Pontefice Alessandro VII, nei pressi del Palazzo Farnese, in cui vennero coinvolti membri del personale dell'Ambasciata di Francia in Roma. Tali incidenti, che ebbero lunghi strascichi fino all'autunno inoltrato, con scambi di accuse e scarichi di responsabilità delle parti chiamate in causa, si svolsero in un momento assai delicato in cui la Santa Sede cercava di coalizzare una nuova Lega Cattolica contro il Turco, e la Corona di Francia aizzava percontro la Sublime Porta a muovere guerra all'Austria. Riassumendo i fatti: il duca di Créqui, entrato in Roma l'11 giugno 1662 con un seguito di 200 armati, pretendeva con una certa tracotanza una sorta di franchigia diplomatica estesa anche ai contorni del Palazzo Farnese. Il 20 agosto, essendo venuti a diverbio per bravate e futili motivi nei paraggi del palazzo alcuni Corsi con 3 francesi, ne nacquero scambi di archibugiate, una delle quali colpì pure la carrozza diplomatica su cui viaggiava l'ambasciatrice, provocando la morte di "un Lacché di quella Nazione". Gli scontri proseguirono con reciproche vendette nei giorni successivi, in cui si assistette pure ad una sorta di "caccia al francese", che coinvolse perfino un piemontese preso p … [Cliquez ci-dessous pour une description complète]

BOYLE, Robert.
Oxford: Printed by H. Hall...for Tho. Robinson. Second edition but the first announcement of Boyle's law, relating to the inverse proportion of the volume and pressure of a gas, which was Boyle's most important achievement in physics and one of the greatest contributions to physical science. Not only does Boyle here enunciate a fundamental law, but he supports it with the evidence of verifiable experiments. It exemplifies perfectly the methodology of what is now known as the experimental method of science: hypothesis tested by experimental proof, which Boyle was among the first to adopt. To this second edition Boyle added a defence of his views against attacks by Hobbes and Franciscus Linus, among others. "This second edition (here cited) is particularly important for what Boyle called an 'hypothesis' but what we know as 'Boyle's Law': that the volume of air in a confined space varies inversely as the pressure. He demonstrated this by much experimental detail: with experiments on rarefaction performed by others, including Hooke, and on compression performed by himself" (PMM).

La première édition, dédiée à Nicolas Fouquet, parut en 1656. Cet atlas fait partie de la série des quatre continents de Nicolas Sanson (Europe, Afrique, Asie, Amérique), publiés séparément entre 1647 et 1657. Chaque carte est accompagnée de sa description géographique puisée chez les auteurs anciens (Pline, Strabon), dans les récits des voyageurs (Linschoten, Purchas, J. de Laet) et dans les rapports des missionnaires jésuites. Premier de cette célèbre famille de cartographes, Nicolas Sanson (Abbeville, 1600 - Paris, 1667), dit Sanson d'Abbeville, étudia au collège des Jésuites d'Amiens. Initié à la géographie par son père, il publia, en 1627, une carte des Gaules qui attira l'attention du cardinal de Richelieu. Celui-ci le fit nommer géographe du roi, avec la charge d'ingénieur en Picardie. Par la suite, Louis XIII lui remit le brevet de conseiller d'État. Reconnu comme le fondateur de la cartographie française, Sanson est l'auteur de près de 300 cartes.

Publisher's full vellum with yapp edges, richly blocked in gilt; pp. [xxiv], 169; [ii], 49, [2], with hand-coloured additional engraved title, coloured engraved vignette on typographical title and 55 (54 double-page) engraved maps, all in publisher's hand-colouring with heightening in gold, one coloured engraving in the text; spine with a few slits near head, ties cut away, occasional light browning, as usual, fly-leaves removed at an early stage, to prevent offsetting, otherwise a very good copy of a magnificent and early atlas covering Scotland with 49 maps and Ireland with six. First edition of this volume of Blaeu's celebrated Atlas maior, an ambitious 12-volume enterprise of the biggest world atlas, which in the end bankrupted his cartographic business with the largest printshop of the world at the time. 'The Blaeu Atlas Maior or Cosmographia Blaviana is one of the largest and most splendid of the multi-volume Dutch world atlases. Published in 1662-5, its 594 maps and 3,368 pages of texts collectively presented the state of geographic knowledge of the world in the mid 17th century. Volume VI of the work was devoted to maps of Scotland and Ireland, bringing forward the original mapping of Scotland from the work of Timothy Pont, first published in Blaeu's Atlas novus of 1654, into their final published form. The Atlas Maior was the most expensive book that could be acquired in the mid-17th century - a lavish and splendid item for display by its powerful and wealthy customers ...

FORBES, John (publisher).
A.D. McLucas, "Forbes' Cantus, songs and fancies revisited" in: Defining strains: the musical life of Scots in the seventeenth century (), pp. 269-298; ESTC R218639. Enlarged and corrected third edition, one of two issues, of the earliest printed secular Scottish songbook, published by John Forbes, book and music printer at Aberdeen. "As the sole publication of secular music in Scotland during the entire sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, the three editions (1662, 16666 and 1682) of Cantus, Songs and Fancies by the Aberdeen printers John Forbes and son are of historical significance. ... the three editions present the 'cantus' voice of sixty-four songs, about a third of them unique to Scotland and nine found so far only in Songs and Fancies" (McLucas). Added to the present third edition are six "balletti" after Giovanni Giacomo Gastoldi (b.1555), and some popular English songs by Henry Lewis and Dr. Wilson. With the bookplate of the English musician, organist and tenor William Hayman Cummings on paste-down, and the bookplate of the Swiss pianist Alfred Cortot on first flyleaf. Lacking the woodcut frontispiece, replaced by the frontispiece from the 1879 facsimile edition. Title-page and the following pages somewhat stained, occasionally a small spot, stain, or wormhole. Binding very slightly rubbed along the extremities. Overall in good condition.
