        Engraved Portrait by "Hobbedeboody".

      , 1663. 1663. Adams, Jack (1625-?). Magnifico smokentissimo custardissimo astrologissimo cunningmanissimo rabbinissimo viro Iacko Adams de Clarkenwell Greeno hanc lovelissiman sui picturam. Engraved portrait. N.p., n.d. (1663 or later). Mounted. 130 x 76 mm. (engraving); 146 x 93 mm. (mount). Very good. Comic portrait of British astrologer Jack Adams, the "Cunning Man of Clerkenwell Green," captioned in dog-Latin and signed "Hobbedeboody pinxit et scratchabat." John Timbs, who reproduced this engraving in his English Eccentrics and Eccentricities (1875), gave the following brief biography of Adams:"Among the celebrities of Clerkenwell Green was Jack Adams, whose nativity was calculated by Partridge, who affirmed that he was born on the 3rd of December, 1625, and that he was so great a natural, or simpleton, as to be obliged to wear long coats, besides other marks of stupidity. . . . "Jack Adams was a conjurer and professor of the celestial sciences; he was (says Granger's Supplement) 'a blind buzzard, who pretended to have the eyes of an eagle. He was chiefly employed in horary questions, relative to love and marriage, and knew, upon proper occasions, how to soothe and flatter the expectations of those who consulted him, as a man might have much better fortune from him for five guineas than for the same number of shillings . . . He assumed the character of a learned and cunning man; but was no otherwise cunning than as he knew how to overreach those credulous mortals who were as willing to be cheated as he was to cheat them, and who relied implicitly upon his art.' . . . "In an old print we have Jack Adams in a fantastic dress, with a tobacco-pipe in his girdle, standing at a table on which lies a horn-book and Poor Robin's Almanack. On one shelf is a row of books, and on another several boys' playthings, particularly tops, marbles, and a small drum. Before him is a man genteelly dressed, presenting five pieces; from his mouth proceeds a label, inscribed, 'Is she a princess?' This is meant for Carleton, who married the pretended German princess. Behind him is a ragged, slatternly woman, who also has a label in her mouth, with these words: 'Sir, can you tell my fortune?'" (Timbs, pp. 131-132)."The pretended German princess" refers to British criminal Mary Carleton, who assumed false identities in order to marry and defraud a number of men. She first came to public notice in 1663 when she was arrested and tried for impersonating a German princess in order to marry John Carleton, the brother-in-law of a tavern owner.

        COMOEDIAE SEX ANGLO-LATINAE. SIX COMEDIES . . . IN ENGLISH AND LATINE

      London: Printed for the Company of Stationers, 1663. This is a charming diglot edition of Terence's comedies geared toward young audiences, seen here in a convincing retrospective binding. Flourishing in the second century B.C., Terence has given us six extant plays, the ancestors of drawing room and modern situation comedies featuring crusty fathers, rebellious sons, and impudent slaves whose machinations solve the playwright's intricate complications of plot. The plays were popular throughout the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, and still retain their appeal. Charles Hoole (1610-67) is responsible for this translation; as a cleric and educator he published several books of Latin grammar and translations specifically "For the use of young Scholars," including the present work. This book was undoubtedly used by at least two young scholars, whose loopy, unpracticed hands have each certified it as "his book." Given this ownership, our copy is remarkably well preserved and all the more desirable for its replica binding by Philip Dusel. Dusel's modern interpretations of classic binding styles impress with their fidelity, and they often innocently deceive all but the most sophisticated collector. When Bernard Middleton, the dean of British book conservators, saw examples of Dusel's work in California, he is reported to have said he was going to go away and shoot himself. Dusel's bindings are not signed, but this is certainly his work (the volume was formerly in the inventory of the dealer who is one of the binder's chief clients).. 157 x 97 mm. (6 1/4 x 3 3/4"). 2 p.l., 247, [1], 241-501, [1] pp.Translated by Charles Hoole. Fine retrospective tobacco-brown morocco, elaborately gilt, by Philip Dusel, covers with floral frame and oblique thistle ornaments at corners, raised bands, spine intricately gilt in compartments with rosette at center and scrolling cornerpieces, gilt titling. Text in English and Latin on facing pages. Verso of title with early ownership inscriptions in schoolboy hands. Title page and A1 with neat repairs, title somewhat soiled, leaves a bit browned, occasional minor stains, but the text in very good shape for a school text, and the recent period-style binding bright and unworn.

        Traitez de l'équilibre des liqueurs, et de la pesanteur de la masse de l'air. Contenant l'explication des causes de divers effets de la nature qui n'avoient point esté bien connus jusques ici

      Paris, Guillaume Desprez, 1663. 1663, 1663, in-12, (22), 232, (8) pages et 2 planches repliées, plein veau granité de l'époque, dos à nerfs orné, Première édition, parue posthume, publiée par son neveu Etienne Périer et le physicien Rohault. "Pascal consigna ses premiers résultats [sur l'étude du vide] dans un petit livre publié en 1647, "Expériences nouvelles touchant le vide". Enfin d'assoir ses démonstrations, il décida "d'une expérience qui allait être décisive. La grande expérience de l'équilibre des liqueurs a été effectuée au Puy-de-Dôme le 19 septembre 1643. Pascal établit d'une façon irréfutable que la hauteur du mercure suspendue dans le tube de Torricelli pouvait varier avec l'altitude. Il s'ensuit, dit Pascal, que la pesanteur et la pression de l'air sont la seule cause de la suspension du mercure, et non l'horreur du vide, et qu'au contraire la nature s'accommode fort bien du vide." Ainsi le traité de 1663 prouva "non seulement l'expérience de la pression atmosphérique, mais aussi l'existence du vide", un des fondements de la physique moderne (En français dans le texte).

        Gubbio Città Regia Antichissima dell'Umbria

      1663. Opera tratta dal "Theatrum Civitatum et admirandorum Italiae", pubblicato ad Amsterdam nel 1663; testo descrittivo al verso. Johannes Blaeu, durante la sua lunga attività editoriale pubblica tre volumi sulle città italiane. Nel 1663 i primi tre, suddivisi in Stato della Chiesa, Roma e Regno di Napoli e Sicilia. Alla sua morte i suoi eredi danno alla luce altri due volumi datati 1682 incentrati sulle città del Piemonte e della Savoia, poi ristmapti da altri editori nel 1693 e 1697. Il francese Pierre Mortier pubblica una ristampa nel 1704/5, intitolata "Nouveau Theatre de l'Italie". L'opera è in quattro volumi e comprende le lastre del Blaeu, ritoccate e modificate in piccola parte, integrate dall'aggiunta di numerose nuove mappe di proprio disegno, raffiguranti le città della parte settentrionale della penisola, racchiuse nel primo volume dell'opera. L'atlante del Mortier venne pubblicato con testo latino, francese ed olandese. La particolarità che differenzia le due edizioni di Blaeu e Mortier è rappresentata dal fatto che il testo non è al verso della singola mappa (che quindi è bianca nel retro), ma si trova all'inizio di ogni singolo volume. Il grande successo dell'opera diede origine ad un'ulteriore ristampa, praticamente identica, curata da R. Alberts ed edita nel 1724/5. Le opere tratte dalla prima edizione del Blaeu, 1663, sono caratterizzate dalla presenza del testo al verso e sono piuttorsto rare. Incisione in rame, in buono stato di conservazione.

        Traité des tourbes combustibles

      Jean du Bray & Pierre Variquet, 1663. With engraved vignette on title and the famous portrait of "Monsieur Charles Patin" by Claude Lefebvre, French painter and etcher. Contemporary full calf, slightly warped and somewhat worn; first and last leaves browned around the edges, small waterstain on last blank and paste - down, text in excellent condition. First edition of this very rare treatise describing the use of peat as a fuel. The author discusses the varieties and sources of combustible peat used to make charcoal as well as many useful by - products in agriculture, cooking and botany. At the time, charcoal was believed to mainly consist of bitumen and sulpher, causing strong fumes, which Patin was much opposed to because of his concern with dangers of health caused by inhalation. Proficient in metallurgy, Patin was an early advocate of ecology, with his knowledge that strong organic matter accumulates in the ground and gives rise to significant drops in mineral contents, causing many problems for plant growth. At the end of the book is a proposal of the Sieur de Chambre for the artificial production of peat bogs surrounding Paris along with royal letter patent for a thirty year process. Patin (1633 - 1693), the gifted son of Gui Patin, by the age of 23 completed his law studies and received his M.D. degree. He taught anatomy and pathology at the medical school of Paris, but was obliged to leave France for fear of imprisonment for circulation of certain libels which drew upon him the resentment of the court. He traveled extensively, finally settling in Padua, Italy, where he was appointed professor of chemistry, physic and medicine. He was a man of extensive learning and a voluminous writer in Latin, French, and Italian. Patin is well known for his work on numismatics and medals.

        Early colonialists Land deed recorded 1663 in Cambridge Massachusetts

      Cambridge, Massachusetts, March 31, 1663. 7.5" x 6.75". "Single page autograph document signed, 7.5"" x 6.75"" on laid paper. Light toning and spotting with trivial edgewear. Expected folds. Tiny .25"" separation at one fold. Verso with two small pieces of tape along top edge, perhaps was used for mounting. Near fine condition.A wonderful very early land deed of a large parcel of land representing 500 Acres North of Cambridge, following and bound by the Shaw Shine River. As with such early land deeds the properties are identified by the local meadows, trees, significant topographical markers and by resident names whose properties were boundaries for the land (such as "" bounded on ye North East w. ye farm of ye Capt Daniel Gookin, on the South East "", and ""extending upward on the Said River as High as the falls & some what more, & encompassing that piece of medow on Woborn line""). The location of the parcel appears to the North of Cambridge as it borders Woburn and the Shaw Shine river (which today is known as the Shawsheen River), a 27 mile tributary of the Merrimack River in northeast Massachusetts.The 500 Acres of land is deeded to a prominent Cambridge church minister, Jonathan Mitchel, who was minister of the Cambridge Church from 1656–67, and used the extension and liberalization of baptism in the 1650s and 60s–later denigrated as the halfway covenant–to bring the unchurched and their children into fellowship, thus indicating a strategy of reaching out to the community. (This period was pre- Cotton Mather)The land deed also references the property boundaries of several significant early settlers of the time, including Daniel Gookin and Thomas Danforth. Daniel Gookin was born in Kent England held a distinguished career as a soldier, historian and protector of the Indians. He became captain of the militia in Cambridge and was elected to the Massachusetts House of Deputies ultimately being appointed Superintendent of all lndians under civil authority in 1656. He was one of the licensers of the Cambridge Printing Press in 1662, wrote in 1674 Historical Collections of the Indians of Massachusetts (published by the Massachusetts Historical Society, 1792), and also a never-published and long since lost History of New England. The prospectus of this second book, issued with his first, is so good as to make us regret greatly the loss of his manuscript, which was probably destroyed by fire. A third work of Gookin’s, An Historical Account of the Doings and Sufferings of the Christian Indians in New England, finished in 1677, just after King Philip’s War, was also lost for many years, but was finally found in England and sent back to America. Thomas Danforth was a politician, magistrate, and landowner in the Massachusetts Bay Colony. A conservative Puritan, he served for many years as one of the colony's councilors and magistrates, generally leading opposition to attempts by the English kings to assert control over the colony. He accumulated land in the central part of the colony that eventually became a portion of Framingham, Massachusetts. He was appointed Treasurer of Harvard College in its charter of 1650, and served as a steward of the college from 1669 to 1682.The location of the parcel appears to the North of Cambridge as it borders the Shaw Shine river (which today is known as the Shawsheen River, and Woburn, Massachusetts.A lovely early land deed steeped in Massachusetts early history. As stated in full:""Shaw Shine March 31, 1663Layd out to the rev: mr Jonathan Mitchel five hundred acres of Land on Shaw Shine River & bounded on ye North East w. ye farm of ye Capt Daniel Gookin, on the South East with Woborn line, & else where surrounded by the comons of ye said planation.

        Ongeluckige Voyagie van het Schip Batavia ... na Oost-indien, en gebleven is op de Abrolhos van Frederick Houtmann...

      Amsterdam: Gillis Joosten Saeghman, n.d. but circa, 1663. Small quarto, pp. 44, with a wood-engraved title-page vignette, one full-page wood-engraving, and six copper engraved illustrations in the text; some toning and a few marks but a very good copy with good margins and sharp impressions of the engravings; bound in simple marbled paper wrappers. Very rare and exceptionally important: an early edition of the extraordinary and dramatic story of the "unlucky voyage" of the VOC ship Batavia, the most desirable of all books relating to Western Australia, a celebrated rarity of Australian book collecting, and the most important of all Dutch Australiana. Pelsaert's boat voyage along the West Australian coast to seek help at Batavia was the first extensive discovery of the Australian continent, exceeded only by the later voyages of Abel Tasman.First published in 1647, there were essentially six editions, with three variants, published in the seventeenth century (Tiele, 235-243; Landwehr, VOC, 406-411). This is the last of the early editions; all the early editions are of great rarity on the market. This version has sometimes been misidentified, appearing in some library catalogues wrongly dated 1648.The fine engraved illustrations in the book are famous; they include the celebrated scene of the Batavia foundering on the Houtman Abrolhos in the Indian Ocean west of modern Geraldton, graphic reproductions of the mutiny and slaughter on the islands, and the hanging of the mutineers on Seal Island. These are the earliest printed representations of any Australian scenes.The early Dutch editions of Pelsaert's voyage are of the greatest importance as the first published accounts of any voyage of Australian discovery. The story of the wreck itself, in Drake-Brockman's words, "provides the greatest dramatic tragedy in Australian history beside which the mutiny on the Bounty is an anaemic tale".The previous edition had included the innovation of having the dramatic scene showing the foundering of the Batavia on the title-page, where this edition includes what is believed to be the vessel under full sail with, to its stern, the smaller rescue vessel Sardam, which was dispatched by the VOC under the command of Pelsaert to rescue the survivors. This image had previously been used by the publisher Hartgers for his edition of 1648.

Ordinarily the engraved plates are found as 2 plates; in this case, probably in the binding, the plates were divided into 4 sections without loss of images, and placed presumably to correspond to the text. A fine copy. ---- Dibner Heralds of Science 143; Sparrow Milestones of Science 157; Tchemerzine V, p. 59; Waller 12161; Norman 1650. - FIRST EDITION OF THE FIRST ACCOUNT OF PASCAL'S LAW, stating that pressure in a liquid is transmitted undiminished in all directions. Divided into two closely related parts, this posthumous work is devoted to the laws of hydrostatics and to the demonstration and description of the various effects of the weight of air. Continuing the investigations of Stevin, Galileo, Torricelli, and Mersenne, he provided in the Traites a lucid account of the fundamental concept of pressure. 'Using the recently invented Torricellian barometer, Pascal had his brother-in-law climb the Puy de Dome in 1648 and watch the barometer level fall with the ascent, thereby demonstrating that air had weight ... The relationship of barometric change and change in the weather was first outlined here' (Dibner). Very Good.

        SANCTUS MARINUS Italice SAN MARINO Ville de l'Etat de l'Eglise dans le Duche d'Urbin

      1663. "Doppia veduta prospettica della città, presa da sud-ovest e da nord-est, in un foglio, tratto dal ""Nouveau Theatre de l'Italie"" pubblicato ad Amsterdam nel 1704/5 o nel 1724. L'opera è per la prima volta pubblicata nel "Theatrum Civitatum et admirandorum Italiae", edito ad Amsterdam nel 1663. Johannes Blaeu, durante la sua lunga attività editoriale pubblica tre volumi sulle città italiane. Nel 1663 i primi tre, suddivisi in Stato della Chiesa, Roma e Regno di Napoli e Sicilia. Alla sua morte i suoi eredi danno alla luce altri due volumi datati 1682 incentrati sulle città del Piemonte e della Savoia, poi ristampati da altri editori nel 1693 e 1697. Il francese Pierre Mortier pubblica una ristampa nel 1704/5, intitolata "Nouveau Theatre de l'Italie". L'opera è in quattro volumi e comprende le lastre del Blaeu, ritoccate e modificate in piccola parte, integrate dall'aggiunta di numerose nuove mappe di proprio disegno, raffiguranti le città della parte settentrionale della penisola, racchiuse nel primo volume dell'opera. L'atlante del Mortier venne pubblicato con testo latino, francese ed olandese. La particolarità che differenzia le due edizioni di Blaeu e Mortier è rappresentata dal fatto che il testo non è al verso della singola mappa (che quindi è bianca nel retro), ma si trova all'inizio di ogni singolo volume. Il grande successo dell'opera diede origine ad un'ulteriore ristampa, praticamente identica, curata da R. Alberts ed edita nel 1724/5. Le opere tratte dalla prima edizione del Blaeu, 1663, sono caratterizzate dalla presenza del testo al verso e sono piuttorsto rare. Incisione in rame, in buono stato di conservazione."

        ELEPHANT & FLOWERS

      Circa 1663 - Etching (Very Good, strong dark impression, a tiny thin-spot in the upper part of the elephant, old traces of glue in the corners verso, small old annotation in the lower right white corner)), 17,5 x 27,5 cm (6.9 x 10.8 inches). This stunning etching by Václav Hollar shows a monkey riding an elephant, a palm trree, plants and a grasshopper. All the animals and flowers are marked with English and Latin names. Hollar engraved an elephant on three different prints from in over thirty years, the first etching being an elephant sketched and engraved from life. The animal was on a display in Frankfurt and Nürnberg in 1629. This much later etching from circa 1663 was based on separately engraved animals and plants, published in a contemporary work A Book of Four-Footed Beasts by Peter Stent, first issued in 1658. Peter Stent (c. 1613–1665) was a seventeenth-century London printseller. Václav Hollar: Restoration England’s Greatest Engraver - Václav Hollar (1607 – 1677), known as ‘Wenceslaus’ (in English) and ‘Wenzel’ (in German), was born in Prague, the capital of Bohemia, in 1607, into a bourgeois Protestant family. At the time of his birth, Prague was perhaps the greatest artistic centre in Europe, due to the extravagant patronage of Emperor Rudolf II. However, by the time of Václav’s adolescence, Prague and all of Bohemia were beingravaged by the Thirty Years’ War (1618-48). The fortunes of his family were ruined and his plans to become a lawyer were doomed, owing to his Protestant faith in a country then governed by Catholic zealots. Hollar learned drawing, etching and engraving as a gentlemanly hobby, but in light of his new circumstances and his natural talent, he became a professional artist. Hollar moved to the Stuttgart area in 1627, before continuing on to Strasbourg. By 1633, he was in Cologne. There, in 1636, Hollar had the great fortune to encounter Thomas Howard, the 21st Earl of Arundel, who was returning to England from an embassy to Vienna. Arundel was perhaps the greatest contemporary English connoisseur of the arts and, amazed by the young Czech’s awesome talent, he immediately invited him to join his entourage as his official artist. By 1637, Hollar had relocated to England, and while he executed many assignments for Arundel, he was still free to pursue commissions from other patrons. Shortly after his arrival in England, Hollar engraved a View of Greenwich, a massive panorama of the Thames port town featuring Inigo Jones’s pioneering neoclassical edifice, the Queen’s House. Upon Arundel’s hasty departure from England (due to political reasons), Hollar switched to the employ of the Duke of York. The advent of the English Civil War (1642-8) led to great financial troubles for Hollar, as many of clients proved unable to pay his fees. However, his etching Civilis Seditio (1643) is considered to be on of the most evocative images epitomizing the internecine conflict. Hollar was eventually compelled to relocate to Antwerp, where his best-known work was the magnificent view, the Cathedral of Our Lady (1649). Hollar returned to London in 1652. Upon the Restoration of the monarchy, in 1660, Hollar found himself in a difficult position. While he was apolitical and had many connections with leading Royalists, he was also close to some prominent members of Cromwell’s late administration. While no explicit punitive action was taken, Royalist officials suspected him of being disloyal and ungrateful to the court, and for years Hollar had difficulty gaining court commissions. Hollar did find business from commercial publishers and a few old friends in high places, although this yielded only a hardscrabble existence. It took some years for him to regain the trust of the court. Václav Hollar the Cartographer - Hollar focused heavily on cartography, especially during the last decade, or so, of this life, and this helped to revive his career. He is largely responsible for dramatically improving the quality of map engraving in London.

L'auteur a pris soin au verso du titre de dresser la bibliographie disponible au XVIIe siècle pour des travaux de cette nature dont Sansouin dans ses Illustres familles d'Italie, Vignier dans ses Tables d'Alsace, Du Chesne en sa Franche Comté, Goussencourt, Butkens, Ciaconius, Guichenon, Saincte Marthe, Le Laboureur en sa relation du Voyage de Pologne, Montigny Saint d'Ablon, Tristan Lhermite en sa Toscane françoise ; Relation de l'Estat de la Cour romaine (imprimé en 1662) etc. Une seconde version manuscrite et augmentée qui cite dans le texte notre document, dont les blasons peints sont de la même facture, est conservée à la Bibliothèque Ste Geneviève (cote Ms 1848) sous le titre La Tiare Pontificale ou armorial des papes avec leurs tables généalogiques approuvée par Charles Thibault et François Guillery de l'ordre des freres Prescheurs le 11 mai 1663. Dans son Histoire du Bourbonnais et des Bourbons qui l'ont possédé (première édition 1814-1816), Coiffier Demoret présente Jean Megret "vivant au XVIIe" comme « Trésorier de France à Moulins, auteur de quelques mémoires généalogiques enfin d'une Histoire du Bourbonnais qu'on ne retrouve plus » ; il reçut en effet de son père la charge de Trésorier de France en la Généralité de Bourbonnais qui le lia dans la seconde moitié du XVIIe siècle avec un grand nombre de familles honorables de sa province et par ses travaux avec la plupart des hommes de lettres de son temps. « Nous n'avons en effet de lui que deux petits volumes : Les Généalogies de quelques familles du Bourbonnais utiles à consulter pour l'histoire de cette province et les Eloges des hommes illustres non Bourbonnais, où il fournit des renseignements intéressants sur quelques-unes des célébrités qu'il a connues. Mais il avait édité en 1663, Le Fleuron Royal et préparé lui-même de nombreux travaux dont il donne lui-même la liste pour répondre aux critiques qui l'accusent de stérilité. » (Henry Faure, Antoine de Laval et les écrivains bourbonnais de son temps, XVIe et XVIIe siècles, Moulins, 1870). Pâle mouillure dans la marge inférieure. Rare pièce héraldique XVIIe manuscrite et inédite en reliure d'époque. Saffroy (I.10956/II.18412) pour les travaux imprimés de Jean Mégret.
