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]

(VANE, Henry, Sir, 1613-62)
London: 1662. First edition. 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]

"As the sun is best seen at his rising and setting, so men's native dispositions are clearest seen when they are children, and when they are dying." -- Robert Boyle Robert Boyle was one of the most important Irish-born chemist and natural philosophers of the 17th-century. He is most-remembered for Boyle's Law, which describes the behaviors of gas. In 1659, after the completion of 'Pneumatical Engine,' Boyle conducted a series of experiments on the properties and characteristics of air. The discoveries and results from these experiments were published in Boyle's book 'New Experiments Physico-Mechanical.' This book was critical in the development of Boyle's Law as it was discussing this book that Boyle first mentioned the properties of gas which would become his famed law. [Attributes: First Edition]

BACON, Francis
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. Baxter wrote this book for his own personal enjoyment at a point when he was unemployed. Lowndes mentions this book, and all editions, to include the incredible frontispiece.

"A few hours after the King's execution, his Eikon Basilike was in the hands of the people." This book is collectively a set of meditations during the King's imprisonment and consisted of many of the government's problems and corruption. (Almack, 3) "The work is a masterpiece in its expression of Charles' principles, personal feelings, and prejudices, and by making a martyr of this Stuart king, exercised a considerable influence on English history" (Kunitz & Haycraft, 212).

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. G. war einerseits ein gelehrter, subtiler Mathematiker, andererseits ein Vertreter eklektischer Architekturtheorie, der seine Vorbilder sowohl in der italienischen Baukunst als auch in der französischen und holländischen fand. Das Bestreben nach wissenschaftlicher Fundierung der Bautheorie wurde von ihm mathematisch exakt in der Form einer brauchbaren Grundlehre vom Modul verwirklicht, jedoch versagte er in der formalen Anwendung seiner Ideen, so daß seine "Civil-Bau-Kunst" längst vor der postumen … [Click Below for Full Description]

COURT, Pieter de la.
Amsterdam: Joan. Cyprianus vander Gracht, 1662. Octavo (152 x 95 mm), pp. [16], 267, [5]. Contemporary vellum covered boards. Small private ownership stamp to front free endpaper, early ownership inscription to the title. Vellum a little soiled, small diminishing pale ink stain to the upper margin through most of the book; a crisp, clean copy. First edition, the octavo issue. "The only Dutch bestseller, this work is mainly an argument for industrial freedom plus moderate duties" (Carpenter), comparable and in some respects superior to Roger Coke's of 1670 and 1675, the merit of which consists chiefly in its freedom from errors of reasoning. De la Court "would have to be ranked very high in a history of economic thought or policy" (Schumpeter). The work had been circulated in manuscript and was published, without de la Court's permission, by De Witt, who made alterations and added two important chapters.

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.

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 polit … [Click Below for Full Description]

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 retur … [Click Below for Full Description]

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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

Copper engraving, mm 422x535, colored. No text on verso. One of the most decorative and beatiful maps of Brazil ever published, among the first maps not from portuguese sources, drawn after actual surveys by Georg Markgraf and Elias Herckmanns, originally in Barlaeus's Rervm per Octennivm in Brasilia published by Blaeu in 1647 and later inserted in Blaeu's Atlas Major. Richly decorated with a highly interesting and decorative scene depicting life in a farm; the bottom part of the map depicts sea battles. The complete set of maps was also assembled into a large wall map, Brasilia qua parte paret Belgis. The maps then appeared in the Atlas Maior in 1662. Good condition, two light vertical long creases near centerfold reinforced on verso.

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]

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 … [Click Below for Full Description]
