        Hudibras: The First Part

      London: Printed by J.G. for Richard Marriot, 1663 First edition, third (16mo) issue. Finely bound in full green morocco, with five raised bands to the spine, lettered and ruled in gilt, all edges gilt. Fine modern binding; text block trimmed, former owner Robert Hoe's morocco bookplate to the front pastedown, some minor chips to the page edges, discreet repair to a page edge, otherwise clean interior. Written in the last years of the English Civil War, Hudibras contains three parts that were published in 1663, 1664, and 1678, with the final installment being the three parts collected as in one volume. This first edition of Hudibras was preceded by a spurious edition in 1663 that was published in a small 16mo format and identified neither publisher nor printer. The first authorized edition was published in the same year in larger 8vo size by Richard Marriot, who issued this 16mo format simultaneously, most likely to compete with the pirated edition of the same size. Hudibras is a long narrative poem that satirizes the religious political conflicts that caused the English Civil War between the "Roundheads" and "Cavaliers." Specifically, it tells the story of the Presbyterian knight Hudibras and his squire Ralpho who embark on a series of strange adventures all the while arguing about the political and religious controversies of their day.. Hard Cover. Very Good.

        Traité des tourbes combustibles ALTERNATIVE FUEL SOURCE

      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.

        Articulen van vrede ende Confoederatie, Ghesslooten tusschen den doorluchtighsten coningh van Portugael ter eenre ende de hoogh mogende heeren Staten Generael der Vereenighde Nederlanden ter andere zyde

      Brazil and the African dominions go to Portugal, whilst the Far East and South East Asia colonies go to the Dutch. 1663. Gravenhage. Hillebrandt van Wouw. In 4to (197 mm x 150 mm). 14 ff. Unbound. Excellent copy, with only mainly marginal foxing spots.First edition. The Dutch-Portuguese War was an armed conflict involving Dutch forces in the form of the Dutch East India Company and the Dutch West India Company, against the Portuguese (1602 ?" 1663). During the conflict, Salvador de Bahia for instance, would change hands back and forth twice; raids and acts of privateering were common as well. The result of the war was that Portugal won in South America (Dutch Brazil) and Africa (Angola and São Tomé), and the Dutch were the victors in the Far East and South Asia. The war was concluded in 1661, and the terms were settled with this treatise; it´s importance for both the West and East Indies was considerable, and translations soon were prepared. The result of the treatise shaped the future of Asian and American colonies for about a century, with remnants of their colonization present to-date in architecture, language, etc. "This treaty between Portugal and the States General relates to Brazil" (Sabin).Rare, no copies have appeared at auction in the last 30 years.Sabin, 2157; European Americana III, 172.

Quarta edizione - la prima è del 1656, Paris, chez Luyne, cui ne seguono altre due (1656 e 1657), pubblicate da Pierre l?'Amy. Cfr. Cantamessa,III, p. 2039-2040: ?"Come si legge nella dedicatoria, è un trattato di "Sciences curieux": in effetti, l?'Autore, di cui si conosce solo il cognome (?), scrive di chiromanzia (i primi 10 capitoli), di fisiognomica (19 capitoli), di geomanzia (21 capitoli). L?'astrologia attraversa l?'opera, quale, sostanzialmente, minimo comun denominatore delle altre tre scienze, se così si possono impropriamente chiamare. Peruchio tratta in modo superficiale delle caratteristiche dei Pianeti e dei Segni e le relative tavole dei gradi nella parte dedicata alla chiromanzia, nonché nella parte dedicata alla geomanzia. Alla pagina 204 è riprodotta una bella tavola che ha quale tema il quesito relativo all?'effettiva celebrazione di un matrimonio, i cui simboli vengono riprodotti nelle tavole, alcune di esse davvero belle, che arricchiscono l?'opera. Le pagine da 328 a 339 trattano di numerologia (per esempio, per stabilire se una persona è colpevole o meno di un reato) e, infine, le ultime 3 spiegano come si usa la Ruota di Pitagora, mirabilmente riprodotta?". Con qualche alone e uniformi arross. per la qualità della carta, ma complessivam. discreto esemplare.

In folio (mm. 390x260), p. pergam. coeva, dorso a cordoni con tit. ms., cc.nn. 2, pp.num. 433 (ma 437 perchè le pp. 324-325 e 415-416 sono ripetute); frontespizio generale dell'opera in elaborata cornice figurata con, al suo verso, ritratto del Serlio; anche i frontespizi dei libri III-VI hanno figure architettoniche; al fine marca tipografica in ricca cornice. Il vol. è ornato da grandi iniz. e da numerosiss. e pregevoli finali, ed è illustrato nel t. da centinaia di silografie, molte a p. pag.; il VI libro contiene 13 tavv. (sempre nel t.) inc. in rame. I sei libri "nuovamente impressi in beneficio universale in lingua Latina & Volgare, con alcune aggiunte" sono cosi' suddivisi: "Geometria - Perspettiva - Antiquità di Roma e le altre che sono in Italia e fuori d'Italia - Regole generali di architettura sopra le cinque maniere degli edifici, cioè Thoscano, Dorico, Ionico, Corinthio, e Composito - Diverse forme di Tempij Sacri secondo il costume christiano e al modo antico - Libro Estraordinario: diverse Porte in ordine rustico, & gentile di diversi generi". Cfr. Fowler Collection, p. 266: "The woodcut illustrations of Book I - V seem to be from the same blocks as those of the Venice edition of 1560 but greately reworked.. An interesting feature of this edition is the numerous printer's devices and other ornaments used as tailpieces". Solo lievi aloni e tracce d'uso sparse, altrim. esempl. ben conservato. "Sebastiano Serlio (1475-1554) is one of the four Renaissance authors, with Giacomo Barozzi da Vignola, Andrea Palladio, and Vincenzo Scamozzi, who surpassed in importance Vitruvius and his sixteenth-century commentators. The first to publish an original and illustrated architectural treatise in Italian, he offered practical rules for architectural design, which were intended for the ordinary reader rather than the elite humanists and ruling aristocrats for whom Leon Battista Alberti had written. Serlio avoided theorizing and provided direct aid through woodcuts illustrations..". Cosi' The M.J. Millard Architectural Collection,125.

Han erövrade 1645 Bremen och Verden åt Sverige, och blev själv guvernör där. 1648 ledde han stormningen av lillsidan av Prag. Han blev av Kristina upphöjd till svensk greve och medlem av riksrådet, och snart även mycket förmögen. Han var en av finansiärerna bakom Karl X Gustavs polska fälttåg och deltog från 1656 även själv, men tillfångatogs vid Danzig och blev frisläppt först efter Olivafreden 1660.

Le Comte de Montresor, Claude Bourdeille, fut un conspirateur chevronné, et on le voit conspirer à toutes les époques, contre Richelieu, contre Gaston D'Orléans, lors de la Fronde. Il s'est interessé à toutes sortes de secrets et ses mémoires, tant que les pièces qui y sont contenues en sont un riche témoignage, de 1632 aux premières années de la Fronde.

      Amsterdam, Joan Blaeu 1663. 2 delen in 1 band, (2) 296, 164 (1) p. Origineel Perkament, goudbestempeld, groot Folio (Fraaie atlas met 63 vakkundig en origineel HANDGEKLEURDE kaarten, ook de initialen en decoratieve stempels zijn handgekleurd in groen, rood, blauw en geel. De eerste kaart heeft de gegevens van Nicolaes Visscher, Amsterdam met Spaanse tekst op de achterzijde. Deel IV van de Spaanse Atlas Major, van de verschillende uitgaven van de Atlas Major geldt de Spaanse als verreweg de zeldzaamste. Gebonden in een perkamenten band met daarop het wapen van de Admiraliteit van Rotterdam in goud gestempeld met in de hoeken een globe van het zonnestelsel, tot op heden onbekend en de initialen PPP (Pro Patria Pugno: 'Ik strijd voor het vaderland', wat de embleemspreuk was van de zeventiende eeuwse Admiraliteiten). Dit exemplaar zou één van de zes exemplaren op groot papier kunnen zijn die gered zijn van de brand in 1672. In 1672 werd Blaeu's drukkerij verwoest door een brand, veel van de kopere platen voor het drukken van de kaarten beschadigden hierbij. Door dit verlies werd het onmogelijk om complete sets te produceren van de verschillende versies van de Blaeu atlas zodra de voorraad van gedrukte bladen verbruikt was. De voorraad van gedrukte bladen voor de Spaanse Blaeu atlas waren zo beschadigd dat het niet langer mogelijk was om complete sets van dit werk te leveren, uitgezonderd enkele voltooide exemplaren die op voorraad stonden in de winkel op het Water. De zeldzaamheid van de Spaanse Blaeu atlas wordt onderstreept door H. de la Fontaine Verwey in Uit de Wereld van het Boek III, pagina 183-193: 'Anton Mensing, specialist op het gebied van atlassen, kon gedurende zijn gehele loopbaan slechts de hand leggen op enige losse delen: Duitsland en Nederland' (de laatste in het Scheepvaart Museum te Amsterdam, gebrekkig gekleurd). De Spaanse Blaeu is en blijft een kostbare publicatie met een merkwaardige geschiedenis, en bovendien een sprekend bewijs van het aanzien en het overwicht van de Nederlandse cartografie en typografie in de tweede helft van de zeventiende eeuw, ook in Spanje.) 2 volumes in 1 binding, (2) 296, 164 (1) p. Contemporary Vellum richly decorated with gilt, large Folio (Beautiful atlas with 63 expertly contemporarily HANDCOLOURED maps, as well as the initials and tail-pieces in green, red, blue and yellow. The first map has the address of Nicolaes Visscher, Amsterdam with Spanish text on the verso. Volume IV of the Spanish Atlas Major, from the different editions of the Atlas Major counts the Spanish edition as the scarcest. Bound in a vellum binding with supralibros of the Admirality of Rotterdam in gold with in the corners a celestial globe hitherto unknown and with the initials PPP (Pro Patria Pugno: 'I fight for the fatherland', which was the motto of the seventeenth-century Admiralities). This could be one of the six large paper copies saved from the fire in 1672. In 1672 Blaeu's printing house was destroyed by fire, and many of the copperplates for the maps were damaged. Because of this loss it became impossible to produce complete sets of the different versions of the Blaeu atlas once the stock of printed leaves was used. The stock of printed leaves for the Spanish Blaeu atlas was that much destroyed that it was no longer possible to supply complete sets of this work, apart from some completed copies that were stocked in the shop on the Water. The rareness of the Spanish Blaeu atlas is underlined by H. de la Fontaine Verwey in Uit de Wereld van het Boek III, page 183-193: 'Anton Mensing specialist of atlases could during his whole life only lay hands on two volumes: Germany and The Netherlands' (the latter in the Scheepvaart Museum in Amsterdam, poorly coloured). The Spanish Blaeu is and remains a valuable publication with a remarkable history, and furthermore a striking evidence of the distinction and prestige of the Dutch cartography and typography in the second half of the seventeenth century, also in Spain.)

        Den Romeynschen adelaer. (Op gegraveerde titel: De Romeynsche adelaer, vermeerdert door D.P. Pers).

Roomse Rijk te paard afgebeeld. Reg. Gebonden. Perkament uit de tijd. Goed ex. (Band iets vlekkig; oude verbruinde sporen van sellotape op scheur in titelp.). * Tussen 1632 of 1634 (niet geheel duidelijk) en 1689 zijn tenminste acht edities bij diverse uitgevers, waaronder Pers zelf, verschenen. Een aantal hiervan is, voor zover na te gaan, in geen enkele bibliotheek te vinden . (Ref.: NCC, DBNL, Worldcat., Cat. van boeken in Noord-Nederland verschenen, 1911, VI, kolom 50, De Wind, IV, pp. 450-451, Van der Aa, Biografisch woordenboek). Ons exemplaar van 1663 is eveneens ontraceerbaar en heeft, in tegenstelling tot andere edities, geen ondertitel. Van dezelfde uitgever verscheen in 1665 een tweede (?) druk (zelfde aantal pagina's) met als titel: "De Romeynsche adelaer, waer in de loflijke en lasterlijke daden der Romeynsche koningen en keyseren, tot in September des jaers 1664, verhaelt werden. Meerendeels uyt des autheurs nagelaten schriften vermeerdert." In totaal worden 123 vorsten beschreven, van Julius Caesar tot Keizer Leopold (1658). Overigens was Pers behalve schrijver en uitgever ook drukker en boekverkoper. Zijn zaak heette "In de Witte Pers". Zijn collega en opvolger (in 1649) was Willem van Beaumont, de uitgever van deze editie, volgens de titelpagina gevestigd "In de Witte Pers" in de Kalverstraat in Amsterdam.

        A CENTURY OF THE NAMES AND SCANTLINGS OF SUCH INVENTIONS, AS AT PRESENT I CAN CALL TO MIND TO HAVE TRIED AND PERFECTED

      London: Printed by F. Grismond, 1663. FIRST EDITION n. Hardcover. Describing his "Water-Commanding Engine" More than a Century before Watt's Steam Engine. 133 x 79 mm (5 1/4 x 3 1/8"). 10 p.l., 72 pp., [1] leaf (blank), [10] pp., [2] leaves (first blank), 34 pp. (Missing blank A1.). FIRST EDITION. Early 19th century polished half calf and marbled boards, neatly rejointed, flat spine competently rebacked incorporating most of original backstrip, original red morocco label. With woodcut initials and headpieces, and full-page royal coat of arms of Charles II preceding the supplement. Norman 1975; Wing W-3532. Extremities a bit rubbed, paper boards a little chafed, offsetting to endpapers from binder's glue, faint marginal browning and isolated mild foxing, one leaf with burn hole barely touching two letters, other trivial imperfections, but AN EXCELLENT COPY of a scarce work, the restored binding quite sound, and the text clean and fresh, with deep impressions of the type. This small, quirky publication contains descriptions of several significant inventions, including the celebrated "water-commanding engine," a device entitled to be called the first steam engine. Additionally, our copy contains the 34-page supplement---very frequently missing, as in the Norman copy--that features what basically amounts to a patent for that important machine. (In this section, as in a modern patent, Worcester describes the parts and function of his water-commanding engine in an application to King Charles II, and an Act of Parliament dated 20 September 1663 grants Worcseter the right to receive "the benefit and profit of a Water-commanding Engine by him invented," reserving 10 percent of the benefits therefrom to the Crown.) Other impressive inventions described in our little volume include a calculating machine, a universal language, repeating firearms, time bombs for use against enemy ships, a mechanical flying bird, a device for enabling a man to fly, burglar-proof locks, and eight different mechanical alphabets. Edward Somerset, 2nd Marquess of Worcester (d. 1667), was a courtier with a strong interest in science and engineering. According to the DNB, around 1628 "he employed a Dutch engineer, Caspar Calthoff, to assist him with experiments at [his] castle. Although no surviving trace of it was ever found during twentieth-century conservation work there, it is possible that a machine employing the propulsive properties of steam was constructed to raise water to the full height of the great tower." As a Royalist, Worcester was forced to flee to France when the monarchy fell, but by 1652, he had returned to England, where he was allowed his freedom by Cromwell, who seems to have been a supporter of the young marquess' scientific pursuits. Worcester resumed his partnership, and the present catalogue was composed. In the words of DNB, of the catalogue's various inventions, "the 'water commanding engine' . . . excited [the] most interest among historians of science, because its inventor claimed to have found a way to 'drive up water by fire.' (Dircks, 475) Although the word 'steam' was not used as a term in science or engineering until after Worcester's death, the water commanding engine appears to have been powered by that means, and thus the marquess has been promoted, most vigorously by [his biographer] Dircks, as an inventor of the steam engine." It is especially lucky to find this work with the supplement: an exhaustive search of OCLC, COPAC, and KVK locates 10 institutional copies but only four that seem to have the supplement, one at University College London and three at German libraries.

Abraham Rogerius (? - 1649) war ein niederländischer Missionar, er lebt und predigte von 1631 bis 1647 in Niederländisch-Ostindien. In seinem posthum erschienen Werk beschreibt er die Religionen in Indien, Japan und China, mit ausführlichen Angaben zu Göttern, Tempeln, Priestern, Festen, Zeremonien, Ritualen und Bräuchen wie Menschenopfern. Weiterhin werden Totenkult, Seelenwanderung und Blutaberglauben behandelt. "This is the earliest Euopean account of Hinduism in Southern India" (Landwehr). Die deutsche Übersetzung erfolgte durch den Nürnberger Theologen Christoph Arnold (1627-1685), der auch einen Anhang (afrikanische, asiatische und amerikanische Religionen) verfasste, welcher erstmals in der deutschen Ausgabe veröffentlicht wurde. - Wie häufig fehlt auch bei diesem Exemplar der zusätzliche, gestochene Titel. Die fehlenen Tafeln waren diesem Exemplar wohl nie beigebunden. Insgesamt etwas knapp beschnitten, vereinzelt leicht gebräunt und stellenweise auch etwas braunfleckig. Insgesamt gutes bis sehr gutes Exemplar.

        Familiæ Romanæ

      [Paris: 1663] - Engraved title by Chauveau, engraved dedication to Charles Le Brun, 249 leaves engraved with coins. Oblong 8vo. Newly bound in tan goatskin, the covers with a blind fillet border and panel, the spine divided into six panels, lettered in the second and dated at the foot, the others tooled with a blind ornament, plain endleaves and edges. The title and dedication leaf have been closely trimmed at the foot with slight loss, and a few of the plates are rather closely trimmed at the head to just within the plate marks. There is some occasional light browning and soiling but it is a good copy. There is a 2pp manuscript index at the end and one of the plates has a coin added in brown ink into two of the blank roundels. The volume came from the library at Woburn Abbey, though there are now no marks of provenance. The book illustrates the ancient coins that were part of the collection of Fulvio Orsini. One of the leaves has been printed with two plates, and all the others have only one plate (displaying a varying number of coins). Comparing this copy with the Earl of Pembroke's and William Roscoe's copies it is evident that there were a number of different issues of this book published in 1663.
