BOYLE, Robert
1662. Origins of famous Boyle's Law on Gas! "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]

1662. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Saints Everlasting Rest Richard Baxter PURITAN Bible Devotional on HEAVEN "Lay siege to your sins, and starve them out by keeping away the food and fuel which is their maintenance and life." ― Richard Baxter Richard Baxter's "The Saints' Everlasting Rest" has long been recognized as one of the great classics of Christian devotion, and it is by this book that he is best known. 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.

1662. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. I would rather choose to wear a crown of thorns with my Saviour, than to exchange that of gold, which is due to me, for one of lead, whose embased flexibleness shall be forced to bend and comply to the various and oft contrary dictates of any factions, when instead of reason and public concernments they obtrude nothing but what makes for the interest of parties, and flows from the partialities of private wills and passions. I know no resolutions more worthy a Christian king, than to prefer his conscience before his kingdoms. - King Charles I, England, Eikon Basilike A first edition printing of the works of Charles I, King of England. "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).

Orig.pappband der Zeit, mit äußerlichen Gebr.spuren, Rücken seitlich unten mit Riss, innen nahezu fleckfrei, gutes Ex. Text lateinisch-deutsch mit 40 Kupfertafeln ------ Eine seiner Arbeiten für praktizierende Architekten über Meßgeräte und Werkzeuge mit denen man korrekte Proportionen zeichnen konnte ------- Nikolaus Goldmann: Architekturtheoretiker, * 29.9.1611 Breslau, gest. vor 6.6.1665 Leiden (Holland). 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.

(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.

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.

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.

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.

BLAEU JOHANNES
1662. Copper engraving, mm 422x535, colored. No text on verso. One of the most decorative and beatiful maps of Brazil ever published; this scarce map, which was first published in late editions of Blaeu's Atlas Maior, is generally found in the much more common later reissue by Pieter Schenk, who acquired what left of Blaeu's stock of plates after the fire that destroyed his firm.

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]

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.

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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

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. The "Mechanica" is called one of the most elegant scientific … [Click Below for Full Description]

The work shaped both the knowledge and the landscape of an entire nation throughout centuries."There can be no doubt that John Evelyn, both during his own lifetime and throughout the two centuries which have elapsed since his death in 1706, has exerted more individual influence, through his charming "Sylva", ... than can be ascribed to any other individual." (Nisbet, in the preface to the 1908 reprint of the 1706-edition).Apart from its pivotal importance to forestry, reforestration, the history of planting in Europe and the direct benefits from that, the book is famously the first book to be printed by the Royal Society … [Click Below for Full Description]

(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 … [Click Below for Full Description]
