GRAUNT, John
London: John Martin & James Allestry, 1662. 2nd Edition. Hardcover. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. 4to (190 x 148 mm). [16], 79 [1] pp. Two folding tables. Bound in 19th-century plain vellum, spine titled in ink, marbled endpapers, several blank leaves bound in at end. Text browned mainly in outer margins, occasional minor spotting, title-page dust-soiled, with two larger stains near gutter (likely glue residues from removed stickers not affecting paper itself) and with lower corner somewhat rounded, extensive manuscript notes on first flyleaf. Provenance: American physician Huntington Williams (armorial bookplate to front pastedown and original sales receipt by Maggs Brow, dated 1st May 1922). Still a very good copy, collated complete. ---- NLM/Krivatsy 4952 (imperfect); not in Wellcome; PMM 144 (1st edition); Norman 933 (1st edition); Goldsmiths' 1665; Kress 1155; Wing G1599A; ESTC R12046. - RARE SECOND EDITION, published in the same year of the first. Graunt's observations on the bills of mortality led to the publication of the first life table to be based on real mortality data. Designed to provide a warning against the plague epidemic, the bills of mortality did not give the age of death, but did provide the cause of death, and from this Graunt was able to estimate that 36% of all deaths concerned children under the age of six. Among the wide range of deaths listed in the Table of Casualty are the more common as well as Excessive drinking, Fainted in a Bath, Grief, Killed by several Accidents, Lethargy, Leprosie, Overlaid and starved at Nurse, and Suddenly (PMM).

John Bill & Christopher Barker. FIRST EDITION OF 1662 THE B O O K OF Common-Prayer AND ADMINISTRATION OF THE SACRAMENTS, AND OTHER RITES & CEREMONIES OF THE CHURCH. According to the Use of the Church of England; Together with the PSALTER or PSALMES Of DAVID, Pointed as they are to be Sung or Said in CHURCHES. And the FORM and MANNER OF Making, Ordaining and Consecrating OF BISHOPS, PRIESTS and DEACONS. LONDON, Printed by Iohn Bill & Christopher Barker, printers to the Kings Most Excellent Majesty. MDCLXII [1662]. FIRST EDITION -----0----- A rare FIRST EDITION 1662 Folio Book of Common Prayer, bound with a 1662 edition of the Whole Book of Psalms. Several hundred changes were made from the earlier versions of 1561 and 1604, ranging from a single word to the substitution of the Authorized Version of 1611 for the Great Bible of 1540 for all passages of scripture save the Psalms. This is the first printing of the version ultimately adopted by the Church of England, a revision carried out after the tumultuous events leading to and including the English Civil War. The words of the Book of Common Prayer have permeated deep into the English language all over the world. For nearly 500 years, and for countless people, it has provided a background fanfare for a marriage or a funeral march at a burial. Yet this familiarity also hides a violent and controversial history. When it was first produced the Book of Common Prayer provoked riots and rebellion, and it was banned before being translated into a host of global languages and adopted as the basis for worship in the USA and elsewhere … [Click Below for Full Description]

Johannes BLAEU
Amsterdam, 1662. In alto al centro, in un cartiglio sotto al margine superiore, è inciso il titolo: "Nova et Accuratissima Totius Terrarum Orbis Tabula Auctore Joanne Blaeu". Acquaforte finemente colorata a mano, in perfetto stato di conservazione. Meraviglioso esemplare della decorativa carta del mondo di Johannes Blaeu, preparata per il primo degli 11 volumi della sua più grande opera, l'Atlas Major del 1662. Il lavoro, una carta che raffigura la Terra con il classico doppio emisfero, sostituisce il planisfero a proiezione mercatoriana che Willem J. Blaeu aveva prodotto nel 1630, e che aveva accompagnato tutte le pubblicazioni della tipografia. La carta è pertanto molto più rara della precedente. Dal punto di vista grafico l'opera è riccamente decorata dalle allegorie delle stagioni e da figure allegoriche sopra la nuvole nella parte superiore. Esemplare tratto dall'edizione olandese del 1664 dell'Atlas Major. Nice old color example of Blaeu's double hemisphere map of the World, originally prepared by Joan Blaeu for his Atlas Maior in 1662. The map was also included in contemporary composite sea atlases of the period by Goos and others. Unlike Blaeu's first world map which appeared in the majority of his atlases and was done on the Mercator projection, Blaeu utilizes a double hemisphere format and depicts California as an island. This double hemisphere map was prepared at the end of the firm's publishing history and is much rarer than its predecessor. The engraving, layout and elegance of decoration are all of the highest standard. The map depicts celestial figures seated … [Click Below for Full Description]

VOSS Isaac
Elzeviri Ludovico e Daniele. in-4 piccolo, pp. (8), 85, (3), cartonato originale. Impresa dello stampatore al titolo, figure geometriche n.t., testatine ed iniziali vegetali. Prima ed unica edizione di trattato poco noto e molto raro, in cui il Voss pubblica la legge di Snell relativa alla proprietà della luce di passare da un mezzo all'altro con angolo di rifrazione costante, formulata nel 1621 ma rimasta sino ad allora inedita e per questo spesso attribuita a Cartesio. Merito del Voss fu anche quello di aver formulato una nuova teoria dei colori legata al tenore dello zolfo. Willebrord Snell (1581/91-1626) fu il primo ad osservare che il rapporto di rifrazione è costante. Snell non pubblicò mai la propria legge, che circolò in forma di manoscritto, fino a che proprio Isaac Voss la rese pubblica nel 1662, permettendo così a Fermat di spiegarla attraverso il principio del minimo percorso e introducendo il concetto di cammino ottico. Esemplare stupendo, genuino e intonso, di illustre provenienza: al titolo ex libris manoscritto "Biblioteca S. Pantaleonis" e nota di possesso "Alphonsi Borellij", (Napoli, 28 gennaio 1608 ? Roma, 31 dicembre 1679) celebre matematico, fisiologo, filosofo e scienziato italiano. L'opera più conosciuta del Borelli è il trattato, "De motu animalium" (Roma - 1680), uscito postumo, con il quale cercò di spiegare il movimento del corpo animale basato su principi meccanici e per il quale si guadagnò il titolo di padre della biomeccanica.

Al verso del foglio, testo francese relativo alla carta. W.

He charted four continents (here: Europe, Asia, Africa and America), and was even the first to map parts of the globe (so, for example, the Canadian Great Lakes region, with his card "The Canada or new France" ()) map of 1656)). He was the first French to design the plan of a world atlas. Maps and the text of each volume are fully mounted on tabs. Each card receives an explanatory comment, with information on the economy, people and customs of the country, described the ancient authors (Pliny, Strabbon...), stories of travellers or reports of the missions of the Jesuits.

Salvator ROSA (Napoli 1615 - Roma 1673)
"Acquaforte, 1662, fimata in lastra nel cartiglio in basso a sinistra "Salvator Rosa Inv Scul". Nel cartiglio, anche il soggetto in latino "Diogenes adolescentem manu bibentem intuitus Scyphum proijcit" Esemplare nel primo stato di due, avanti le aggiunte a puntasecca. Magnifica prova, ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana "doppio cerchio con giglio", rifilata in prossimità della linea marginale, sottili margini, in eccellente stato conservativo. L'incisione traduce, in controparte, un dipinto dello stesso Salvator Rosa, realizzato nel 1651 e oggi conservato a Copenaghen, presso la National Gallery of Denmark. Il filosofo greco Diogene occupa il centro della composizione. Nella sua destra tiene una coppa, mentre con la sinistra indica a un gruppo di uomini un adolescente inginocchiato a bere dalla sua mano l'acqua del ruscello. Diogene di Sinope fu il primo filosofo ad essere definito cinico (""kynikos"": greco per ""canino, simile al cane""), e come tale, vivea ""come un cane"", cioè senza beni materiali. La tazza per bere era uno dei pochi oggetti rimasti, e ora, ispirato all'esempio del ragazzo, si accorge e mostra agli astanti quanto anche questo utensile questo sia superfluo e la getta via. Unidici anni dopo il dipinto, nel 1662, Salvator Rosa riprese il tema di Diogene, a lui caro, realizzando questa lastra e l'altra che fa da pendant "Democrito" L'episodio di Diogene che getta via la scodella è uno dei tanti raccontati da Diogene Laerzio, ma si ritrova anche in una lettera apocrifa di Diogene a Krates."

Johannes BLAEU (Alkmaar 1571 - Amsterdam 1663)
"In alto al centro, in un cartiglio sotto al margine superiore, è inciso il titolo: ""Nova et Accuratissima Totius Terrarum Orbis Tabula Auctore Joanne Blaeu"". Acquaforte finemente colorata a mano, in perfetto stato di conservazione. Meraviglioso esemplare della decorativa carta del mondo di Johannes Blaeu, preparata per il primo degli 11 volumi della sua più grande opera, l'Atlas Major del 1662. Il lavoro, una carta che raffigura la Terra con il classico doppio emisfero, sostituisce il planisfero a proiezione mercatoriana che Willem J. Blaeu aveva prodotto nel 1630, e che aveva accompagnato tutte le pubblicazioni della tipografia. La carta è pertanto molto più rara della precedente. Dal punto di vista grafico l'opera è riccamente decorata dalle allegorie delle stagioni e da figure allegoriche sopra la nuvole nella parte superiore. Esemplare tratto dall'edizione olandese del 1664 dell'Atlas Major." Nice old color example of Blaeu's double hemisphere map of the World, originally prepared by Joan Blaeu for his Atlas Maior in 1662. The map was also included in contemporary composite sea atlases of the period by Goos and others. Unlike Blaeu's first world map which appeared in the majority of his atlases and was done on the Mercator projection, Blaeu utilizes a double hemisphere format and depicts California as an island. This double hemisphere map was prepared at the end of the firm's publishing history and is much rarer than its predecessor. The engraving, layout and elegance of decoration are all of the highest standard. The map depicts celestial figures seated among the cl … [Click Below for Full Description]

Title page continues: "Together with what he intended to have spoken the day of his sentence (June 11) for arrest of judgment, (had he not been interrupted and over-ruled by the court) and his bill of exception. With other occasional speeches, &c. Also his speech and prayer, &c. on the scaffold." pp (3)-(135). 19.5 cm.

An advocate of religious tolerance, his single term as Governor was not a successful one - he engaged the colony in war with the Pequots, for one thing - but he was instrumental in the founding of Harvard College and he was also a supporter of Roger Williams and the foundation of Rhode Island. Sir Harry returned to England in 1637, now more radical and anti-clerical, becoming a member of the Short and Long Parliaments, and advocating for the separation of church and state. After the fall of Cromwell and the Restoration, Vane was granted clemency for his part in the Glorious Revolution, but it was overturned. He stood trial for high treason, and as was the custom of the time, was forced to defend himself without benefit of counsel. The court was packed with Royalists a … [Click Below for Full Description]

1662. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. "Some books should be tasted, some devoured, but only a few should be chewed and digested thoroughly." ― Francis Bacon Francis Bacon, one of the most famous English philosophers and scientists of the Renaissance. While most of his work deals with discovery, scientific method, and the scientific revolution, he did lean strongly toward Puritanism in his personal devotion. A rare printing of Bacon's "Historia regni Henrici Septimi", or the History of Henry VII. According to Willems, this is a reissue of the 1642 first edition. "'The History of Henri VII' of Bacon had already appeared in the same format and with the same frontispiece [in 1642]." (Willems 1278). This printing's 'frontispiece' is a fully-illustrated title page. A very fine copy. According to Bergeron, "[This work] exists as Bacon's only finished full-scale history of an era....[it is also] Bacon's portrait of King Henry's relationship with his wife Queen Elizabeth." This book has also been nicknamed "The first modern classic of English history". It is a culmination of Bacon's experience in politics and government and in a fine literary style, Bacon analyzes the King's actions and political issues. [Attributes: First Edition]

This important text was written during a bout of extreme suffering from a debilitating illness, perhaps the inspiration for the work. In this work, Baxter identifies four different religious parties that would emerge - Moderate Presbyterians, Independents, Episcopals, and Erastians.

Nach juristischen Studien in Leipzig seit 1629, vielleicht schon seit Herbst 1628, bezog G. 1632 die Universität Leiden, wo er auch 1639 erwähnt wurde. In der Architekturtheorie bemühte er sich um zahlenmäßige Präzisierung der Proportionen in den klassischen Säulenordnungen, die in seinem Werke "Tractatus de Stylometris sive instrumentis quibus quinque ordines Architecturae Methodo - designantur" (Leiden 1662) ihren Niederschlag gefunden haben und wobei er auf die Werke Vitruvs zurückgriff. Von großem Einfluß waren die Werke G.s auf den Architekturtheoretiker Leonhard Christian Sturm.

De la Court "would have to be ranked very high in a history of economic thought or policy" (Schumpeter).

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.

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.

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.

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 … [Click Below for Full Description]
