      London 1663 - First Edition, Very Good/ No Jacket, Full-Leather. Samuel Butler's 'Hudibras' is a literary treasure by any estimation. It concerns the English Civil War and it was intended to ridicule the Presbyterians, Dissenters, and others who had fought against the crown in the conflict between Charles I and Oliver Cromwell. It was published shortly after the restoration of Charles II and the poem had immense popularity at the time. This set is an extremely rare offering as it contains all three volumes (1663-1664-1678) in the first edition and the first issue. I have found no other copies of this set currently available and the ABPC indicates that no full first edition set has been offered for decades. The three volumes are the first issues of the authentic 'author's own' First editions. All points of issue in Lowndes are present in these books. The volumes are bound in full calf (mid 17th century) with hand tooled ornamentation on all front and back boards. The boards show some rubbing and staining from age but they are beautiful nevertheless. The textblocks are virtually pristine with no foxing except on the blank preliminary pages. Volume two lacks the imprimatur preliminary page. Otherwise the texts are absolutely complete. There have been minor repairs done by a professional binder to strengthen the inner rear hinges of both volumes 1 and 2. The errata are all present as called for. Volume three has been rebacked. Volume three was issued in a different size than the other two volumes and this has been compensated for in the magnificent presentation that I commissioned for this work. These are extremely rare books. PRESENTATION CASE: These fine volumes are housed in a full leather case that is made of the finest leather. The case is lined in hand-painted book paper much as the marbled paper found on endpapers. There is a small shim installed in the case to compensate for the differing height of volume three. Each volume has it's own hand made cover that it goes into before inserting the volume into the case. The three covers are made from both leather and the same painted paper that is inside the case. The spines of the covers are leather with leather labels and 23k gold titling indicating the title and volume. I know that this sounds complicated but these things can be hard to describe. I would encourage you to ask for pictures if you have a serious interest in this set. The rear of the covers is also leather. All in all, this is a wonderful copy and presentation of the Great 'Mock-Epic' poem 'Hudibras. We are pleased to send pictures on request. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Amboinse Oorlogen, Door Arnold de Vlaming van Oudshoorn Als Superintendent, over d'Oosterse gewesten Oorlogaftig ten eind gebracht.

      Arnold Bon, Delft 1663 - [12] ff including engraved frontispiece and letter press title, 369 pp, [7] ff including 1 blank, and with 6 double-page engraved plates. Bound in contemporary stiff vellum, repair to upper corner of front cover, some nicking and repairs to upper margin of first few leaves including engraved title page; plate 1 a little toned, pages and plates otherwise fresh and in crisp impression. Very rare first and only edition of this contemporary illustrated account of the Ambon Wars in the Moluccas¿ ¿one of the bloodiest series of campaigns in VOC history¿ - written by the eyewitness Levinus Bor, private secretary to Superintendent Arnold de Vlaming during the conflict. De Vlaming used the war as an excuse to gain a monopoly on the spice trade, destroying plantations throughout the islands as well as brutally suppressing the native uprising. Until the late 18th century, the Moluccas remained the sole source of cloves, mace, and nutmeg, forming a lucrative trade for the European powers who controlled them. When the island of Hoamoal rebelled, Arnold de Vlaming was quick to take advantage of the situation by ordering the destruction of its clove plantations, securing the Dutch monopoly. ¿Then de Vlaming moved against the Ternaten opponents based on Hoamoal and their Makasarese and Malay allies in one of the bloodiest series of campaigns in VOC history. With the VOC sailed the Ambonese Christians in their war-prauws¿In 1656 the population that remained was deported to Ambon. All spice trees on Hoamoal were destroyed, and thereafter it was devoid of human habitation except for passing hongi (war-fleet) expeditions looking for any wild cloves requiring destruction.¿ (Ricklefs, A History of Modern Indonesia, p. 75) The present work, the only account of the episode noted in Landwehr¿s bibliography of the VOC, is a necessarily obsequious portrayal of Dutch actions during the conflict. However, the engraved plates make no attempt to hide the bloodthirsty nature of the affair ¿ ¿resolved martially¿, as the title suggests. The engraved titlepage, for example, is flanked by figures of a Dutch soldier opposite a black native carrying shield and sword, while the vignette at the foot of the page shows the Dutch firing rifles at native forces who return fire with spears. The first engraved double-paged plate depicts smiling, clothed natives greeting Dutch soldiers upon their arrival; the next shows the execution [?] of one native by blowpipe; a third shows natives in war canoes engaging in a naval battle alongside Dutch men-of-war; post-defeat, the fifth plate presents natives in poses of extreme supplication approaching a Dutch official who carries a severed black head in a basket; and a final engraving shows natives and Dutchmen burning a large idol upon a pyre. Arnold de Vlaming van Oudshoorn was Governor of Ambon from 1647 to 1650 and Superintendent of the region from 1652 to 1656. A controversial figure due to the professed Catholicism of his parents, it was his tenure during the Ambon Wars which saw the ¿strenuous military measures that earned him both fame and notoriety¿ (Ricklefs, p. 75). Two American copies of the work are listed on OCLC, at Cornell and the NYPL. Oddly, Landwehr #233 fails to mention any plates in this work. * Landwehr VOC 233; see also Du Perron, De Muze van Jan Companjie (1939) pp. 20-23; Ricklefs, A history of modern Indonesia.

Commissioned by the Emperor Justinian in 530 CE, the body of writings known collectively as the Corpus Juris Civilis preserved and restated all existing Roman law. Compiled in three years under the direction of Tribonium, it was both a critical restatement of earlier law and jurisprudential writings and a complete collection of recent legislation. It is divided into four books, the Institutes, Digest, Code and Novels. The Code contains the laws in force during Justinian's reign. It is divided into 12 books. Book 1 deals with ecclesiastical law, the sources of law, and the duties of high officials. Books 2-8 deal with private law. Book 9 deals with criminal law. Books 10-12 deal with administrative law. It received a great deal of commentary during the medieval and early modern eras. That of Denis Godefroy was influential well into the twentieth century. Godefroy was a jurist, humanist, historian, scholar of Roman law and professor at the Universities of Geneva and Heidelberg. He was also the first to apply the collective name Corpus Juris Civilis to Justinian's works. KVK locates 5 copies of thi [Attributes: Hard Cover]

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 .

        Schriften. - (Zwischentitel:) Etliche Tractätlein ... 2 Teile in 1 Band. 2 Bl., 992, 176 S., 12 Bl. Mit gestoch. Porträt von J. Sandrart und Kupfertitel. Pergamentbd im Stil d. Z.

      (Hanau 1663).. . Erste deutsche Sammelausgabe der Schriften Schupps, posthum herausgegeben von dessen ältestem Sohn Anton Meno Schupp. Schupp, (1610-1661), berühmter Kanzelredner, war einer der hervorragendsten Gelehrten und Pädagogen der Zeit. Er promovierte unter Peter Lauremberg, lehrte in Marburg, vertrat den hessischen Hof bei den Westfälischen Friedensverhandlungen und wurde schließlich 1649 Hauptpastor an der Hamburger Jacobikirche. "S's oft scharf gesellschaftskritische Predigten erfreuten sich größten Zulaufs, erwarben ihm jedoch auch manchen Gegner. Seine Streitschriften sollten ihn in jahrelange Polemiken verwickeln" (Dünnhaupt). Von diesen Schriften enthält die vorliegende Ausgabe u. a.: Salomo, oder Regenten-Spiegel; Der geplagte Hiob; Freund in Noth; Sieben böse Geister; Corinna, die erbare und scheinheilige Hure; Abgenöthigte Ehrenrettung; Von der Kunst reich zu werden (für Sammler von Barockliteratur eine unabdingbare Lektüre!); Teutscher Lucianus; Der Bücher-Dieb ... (gegen die Nachdrucker). "Saftiger Witz, unbekümmertes Drauflosgehen und sprachfinderische Wortwahl rücken diesen großen Hessen des 17. Jahrhunderts in die Nähe seines Landsmanns Lichtenberg. In seiner Unabhängigkeit von Zeitmeinungen und Strömungen, seiner Respektlosigkeit und seinem offenen Auge für Welt und Wirklichkeit, vor allem in seiner zum Sonderlingstum neigenden Lebenshaltung und der manchmal bis zur Freude am Krakehlen ausartenden Streitbarkeit, ist er ganz und gar Hesse, zugleich selbstbewußt und lebensnah ... Aus wenigen Schriften des 17. Jahrhunderts blickt so sehr der Mensch, der sie geschaffen hat ... Damit hebt er sich aus dem verwandten Schrifttum seiner Zeit heraus, in dem er der Art nach wohl eher an Grimmelshausen wie etwa an Moscherosch zu gliedern wäre. Noch heute sind seine gesammelten Predigten und Streitschriften eine Quelle des Genusses für jeden Freund des lebendigen Wortes ..." (Wolfskehl). Mit einem schönen Porträt Schupps, das mit dem Kupfertitel auf einem Blatt gedruckt ist, aber fast allen Exemplaren, die wir nachweisen können, fehlt und auch von Dünnhaupt nicht erwähnt wird. Der schöne Kupfertitel (ein Drucktitel erschien erst mit dem 2. Druck) spiegelt in nuce das barocke Lebensgefühl, in dem beide Extreme nicht nur dicht beieinanderliegen, sondern sich auch in einem Bild vereinen. Nach Dünnhaupt liegen beide Teile in den ersten Druckvarianten E1 und ET1 vor. - Etwas gebräunt, oben eng beschnitten. - VD17 3:310815E (mit Porträt) und 3:310817V (Tractätlein). Dünnhaupt 2.1. Goed. III 235. Hayn/G. VII 237. Manheimer 385. Seebaß/Kistner 921 (mit Porträt).

        Results of Astronomical Observations Made During the Years 1834, 5, 6, 7, 8, at the Cape of Good Hope; Being the Completion of a Telescopic Survey of the Whole Surface of the Visible Heavens Commence idewittn 1825. London, Smith, Elder and Co., 1847

      INSCRIBED BY THE AUTHOR, A FOLIO FIRST EDITION of "the first great star-atlas of the southern hemisphere' (Norman Catalogue 1056). "With this monumental survey of the stars of the southern hemisphere, Herschel completed the task begun by his father William, who fifty years earlier had catalogued the northern celestial hemisphere. Using a twenty foot reflecting telescope, which he erected just south of Cape Town, Herschel swept the whole of the southern sky, cataloging nebulae, cluster and binary stars, carrying out the counts of over 68,000 stars. . . he made detailed drawings and maps" (Honeyman 1663). "Herschel stands almost alone in his attempt to grapple with the dynamical problems presented by star-clusters, and his analysis of the Magellanic Clouds was decisive as to the status of nebulæ" (Oxford DNB). The story of the publication of this work is important, particularly given that this copy is inscribed in the author's hand, noted as such in print, and that no other such copies have been recorded. See scans attached. In print it reads "Presented by Algernon Duke of Northumberland to" and then in Herschel's hand "Professor Robinson, New York, With the Author's Compliments." Additionally, the dedication page notes in text that "This work is gratefully inscribed by the author." "By the end of 1842 [Herschel] had performed without assistance the computations necessary for the publication [in this work] of his Cape observations. In September 1843 the letterpress was 'fairly begun,' and after some delays the work appeared in 1847, at the cost of the Duke of Northumberland, in a large quarto volume, entitled 'Results of Astronomical Observations made during the years 1834-8 at the Cape of Good Hope.' Besides the catalogues of nebulæ and double stars, it included profound discussions of various astronomical topics, and was enriched with over sixty exquisite engravings. He insisted in it upon the connection of sun-spots with the sun's rotation, and started the 'cyclonic theory' of their origin. [Herschel] investigated graphically the distribution of nebulæ, but fluctuated in his views as to their nature. Regarding them in 1825 as probably composed of 'a self-luminous or phosphorescent substance, gradually subsiding into stars and sidereal systems' (Memoirs Royal Astronomical Society, ii. 487), he ascribed to them later a stellar constitution, and finally inclined to suppose them formed of 'discrete luminous bodies floating in a non-luminous medium" (ibid). CONDITION & DETAILS: Folio (13 x 10.25 inches; 325 x 256mm). [12], xx, [452 pp], 17 plates, [6 ii, errata and additions, often lacking]. Ex-libris bearing only a tiny 'withdrawn' stamp on the front pastedown and no other library markings whatsoever. Illustration: 17 plates. The first 13 plates, including the four folding plates, are engraved, the remaining four are lithographed. An inch wide repair to the rear of 3 plates (apparently just to reinforce things at the inner hinge; there are no tears). Binding and Interior: Bound in original maroon blind-stamped publisher's cloth. Rebacked at the spine; gilt-lettered title. Small conservator's repair to the cloth on the rear board. The interior hinges were at some point professionally reinforced. Minor scuffing and edgewear at the tips. Tightly and very solidly bound. Small tear at the upper inner margin of the frontispiece. Scattered light toning and foxing throughout. Handsome wide margins. Very good condition.

(24),369, (12) pp.* First edition. - Levinus Bor 'entered Arnold de Vlamingh van Oudtshoorn's service as his assistant in 1650 and became his secretary later. Bor was a witness to the suppression of the rebellion in the Ambonese islands in 1651-1656. In his booklet, written in 1657, he sets out to give a report on the basis of the papers at his disposal of the Vlamingh's methods of warfare and of the latter's measures to safequard the VOC's interest for a long time ahead. The entire work is suffered with a tone of approval and admiration for the feats of the extremely harsh de Vlamingh. Bor shows no understanding whatever for the motives inspiring the Moluccan rebels' (Polman, The Central Moluccas, p.21).

      Rare first edition of this very important chemistry text, which went through some thirteen editions between 1663 and 1710. It is one of the earliest attempts to strip chemistry from its alchemical mysticism and to describe chemical preparations in an unambiguous manner. "The work is divided into two books: book I briefly describes the utility, definitions, principles, operations, and apparatus of chemistry: book II is devoted to a description of medicinal preparations drawn from the mineral, vegetable, and animal kingdoms. The section devoted to mineral remedies is by far the largest. Little is novel in these preparations, although Glaser displays individual refinements of technique. His recipe for a sel antifebrile (potassium sulfate made by heating saltpeter and sulfur and recrystallizing from water) became uniquely identified with him and was later known as sel polychrestum Glaseri. The naturally occurring mixed sulfate of sodium and potassium (3K2SO4:Na2SO4) was named glaserite in his honor."

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. Last of the early editions of the Batavia's "unlucky voyage" 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.

Zudem zielt Barbosa mit seinem Werk nicht nur auf die Rechtsgelehrsamkeit ab, sondern bietet auch eine "eingehende Darstellung des Materials für die Praxis".
