[DRAWINGS - CHINESE].
A series of 8 pen and ink drawings (5 coloured, 1 also highlighted in gold), illustrating a Chinese novel, possibly the 14th-century Sanguo yanyi or Romance of the Three Kingdoms. All mounted on European paper (6 on 3 different patterns of decorated paper). The paper of the drawings ranges from 23.5 x 14 cm to 24 x 15 cm. In the backing paper of number 7 one can make out an Amsterdam coat of arms watermark. It is difficult to see clearly but seems to follow the general style of Laurentius 71-95 (1662-1675). They show the following (outdoor and indoor scenes):1) 2 warriors on horseback, one of whom has just beheaded the other and carries his head away (the beheaded warrior has not yet fallen from his horse), while his superior watches on horseback with 2 attendants.2) a man standing with a spear in the prow of a boat, while 2 men and a woman sit at a tea table in the boat, which flies a flag and pennant.3) 5 people on 2 boats, one flying a flag and pennant.4) 4 soldiers bringing a woman to a dignitary at his house.5) a delegation visiting a dignitary.6) 2 men playing go, with 4 attendants and a guard.7) a dignitary at a writing table, with attendants and visitors.8) a seated dignitary with 6 standing figures, 1 with a document at a table.With this series, we include 2 woodblock prints (1 coloured) and 1 watercolour drawing:9) watercolour drawing of irises along a stream with hills in the background (17 x 22.5 cm)10) rectangular woodblock print of a Samauri at a tea ceremony (14 x 10 cm)11) octagonal woodblock print of a monk(?) riding a dragon-like horse, with an attendant o … [Click Below for Full Description]

[CHARLES II]
London: Printed for the Author, 1662. 32pp, [1]. With a woodcut frontispiece, trimmed and window-mounted. Recent red morocco, lettered in gilt. A trifle sunned and rubbed, soiling to upper board. Many leaves expertly remounted at gutter, touching text of A2, without loss of sense. Occasional slight shaving to upper margin touching pagination numerals. An anonymous narrative of the tribulations suffered by Charles II following defeat at the Battle of Worcester apparently 'issued by special command', likely in an attempt to profit from the Restoration. The terminal leaf bears a statement from the publisher announcing their intention to print a further volume should this first part find success - it would appear that this did not come to fruition. Rare, with ESTC locating copies of this octavo edition at only two locations in the British Isles (BL and Oxford), and one further in North America (Minnesota). Copies of the quarto edition are recorded at two British locations (BL and Oxford), with none elsewhere. ESTC R219459, Wing W1861.. First octavo edition. 8vo.

[BROME (Alexander), editor]:
London, Printed for Henry Brome...., and Henry Marsh..., 1662, 1662. 8vo, 165 x 95 mms., pp. [viii], 376, 72, 83-200, including vertical half-title leaf, engraved frontispiece, engraved title-page, finely bound in 19th century dark green crushed morocco, panelled in gilt on covers, with second enclosed panel with triangular filigree designs in each corner, spine richly gilt in compartments, gilt dentelles, all edges gilt, marbled end-papers. A fine and attractive copy. Alexander Brome (1620 - 1666) was a poet and lawyer, and the title of this collection derives from the so-called "Rump Parliament," which followed the purging of the Long Parliament in 1648. The collection began life as short collection (89 pages) of poems published as Ratts Rhymed to Death in 1660, and reprinted the same year. The present text is obviously much enlarged, with many new poems, including twenty by John Cleveland. The poems in the second part are distinguished, if that's the right word, by their scatological and lubricious content, with obvious jokes and puns around the title word, e. g., "Bum=Fodder or, Waste-Paper, proper to wipe the Nations RUMP with, or your Own." Most of the songs were designed to be sung, with a number giving a tune. "The four Legg'd Elder; or a Relation of a Horrible Dog and an Elders Maid" is to be sung "To the Tune of The Ladies fall; Or Gather your Rose Buds, and 50 other Tunes." How many of these tunes have survived? Samuel Pepys, in an entry for 23 April 1660, alludes to a Rump song: having listened to a composition by Matthew … [Click Below for Full Description]

Christopher Lehmann
Frankfurt: John Gottfiedt Schonwett, 1662. See pictures. Binding is in a wonderful condition. Loss of bottom right corner of one blank unpaginated front endpaper, chipping around both blank endpapers. The title page has a few barely discernible moisture marks (bottom right, top left gutter) but they are gone by the page 15. All pages toned. Occasional spot or chipping. Between the two sections of the book someone pasted in, at the foreedge, a small piece of metal that delineates the start of the second work/section. Very last printed page (register) has some loss at foreedge that doesn't affect text. A rich repertory of German proverbs from the early 17th century (this is a later edition). Title translates roughly, Flowers of Politics, Political Sentiments, Doctrines, Regulations, Expressions of Theology, Juris, Political, Historical, Philosophy, and the Poets. The Germans claim that this was one of the best collections for many years. Just recently a modern author quoted this work, and the claim that a good King is much like a clock (Technology and the Early Modern Self, Cohen). "All's Well that Ends Well", Wikiquote accredits to this work by Lehmann; although regional sayings are hard to attribute to a specific person. In a handsome fine binding (signed by "Hales"). About the Author Christopher Lehmann was a historiographer and town-guide of Speyer. Physical Attributes Measures 14.5 x 8.5 x 4.75 cm. 12mo.

BOYLE, Robert.
Rotterdam: A. Leers, 1662. First Latin edition, one of two issues, each published one year after the first English edition (the other was published at London, no priority established), of this milestone in the history of chemistry. "His most important work [where he] set down his corpuscular theory of the constitution of matter, which finally freed chemistry from the restrictions of the Greek concept of the four elements, and was the forerunner of Dalton's atomic theory" (Sparrow). "Boyle's most celebrated book is his Sceptical Chymist ... It contains the germs of many ideas elaborated by Boyle in his later publications" (Partington II, p. 496). This Latin edition is the second edition overall; both issues are very rare: we have been unable to locate any copy of either issue in auction records. OCLC lists six copies of the Rotterdam issue and four of the London issue in the US. The first English edition now commands a very high price - the last complete copy at auction sold for £362,500 in 2015 - so that this first Latin edition is the earliest form of Boyle's greatest work that is accessible to the majority of collectors. Provenance: Michel Angelo di Biblia (inscription on title). "The 'Sceptical Chymist' is one of the great books in the history of scientific thought, for it not only marks the transition from alchemy to modern chemistry but is a plea, couched in most modern terms, for the adoption of the experimental method. Boyle inveighed against the inaccurate terminology of the 'vulgar spagyrists' and the 'hermetick philosophers,' as he termed the alchemists who refu … [Click Below for Full Description]

VITTORI Loreto
Grisei, 1662. in-16 (142x80 mm.), pp.(16), 330, pagina di titolo incisa in rame con figura dello stemma dei Medici incoronato e sorretto da fiori e frutti. Dedica di due pagine al Gran Duca. Legatura coeva in cartone rustico, dorso mancante. Edizione originale di questo poema in dieci canti, di grande rarità. Loreto Vittori nacque a Spoleto nel 1604 e morì a Roma nel 1670. Fu un eccellente musicista, compositore, poeta e cantante, allievo di Francesco Soto capo cantore della cappella pontificale. Egli fu tra l'altro autore di drammi in musica quali la Galatea e la Pellegrina. Nella sua epoca fu considerato un prodigio della natura e dell'arte musicale e poetica. (Esemplare mediocre con alcune note e correzioni del tempo a penna, forse di Vittori medesimo; i fogli 3 e 4 preliminari incollati in parte tra loro). Rarissimo cimelio poetico e musicale secentesco.

GASTALDI, Giacomo (c. 1500-1566).
Venice: Stefano Mozzi Scolari, ca 1662. 13 sheets joined (12 map sheets and one title banner along the top edge) (41 x 55 4/8 inches; framed size 51 x 64 4/8 inches). Magnificent and extremely rare engraved wall-map, with traces of original hand-colour (expertly restored, with loss to the right hand part of the map, affecting the title, Europe and the North Atlantic, with loss in the area of Tierra del Fuego, the geographical detail for North America largely intact, relaid on modem linen on stretchers). VERY RARE WALL-MAP OF THE AMERICAS, DERIVED FROM GIACOMO GASTALDl'S LANDMARK MAP OF THE WORLD, PUBLISHED IN 1561. The early history of the plates is uncertain, as the map seems only to have existed in an early and incomplete proof form, of which but two examples are known (Museo Civico Correr, Venice, and the James Ford Bell Library, from the Harmsworth Collection). In the compilation of these earlier examples, the engraver seems to have omitted central North America, which would have been on the central sheet, and made the western sheet marry with the eastern sheet, thus conflating the continent west to east, which would certainly explain the limited circulation in this form. Burden believes that the map was first prepared by Giovanni Francesco Camocio, circa 1568, but the watermark on the Harmsworth copy is datable to the late 1580s, after Camocio's death, and therefore the printing is probably attributable to Donato Bertelli. It was not until the seventeenth century that the map seems to have been completed, as here, with the addition of additional sheets to complete … [Click Below for Full Description]
