MILTON, JOHN
London: Simmons. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. FIRST EDITION, one of only 1300 copies printing, of Milton's masterpiece. Paradise Lost was finally completed by 1663, but Milton's reputation as a champion of the republic meant that he could not publish the poem immediately. The politically opportune moment for the publication of Paradise Lost finally arose in the spring of 1667. On 27 April Milton sealed a contract (now in the British Library) with the printer Samuel Simmons; Milton received £5 immediately, with the promise of another £5 when the first edition of 1300 copies had been sold… The first edition was exhausted in the spring of 1669, and on 26 April Simmons paid Milton another £5... "Milton's epic was registered as 'Paradise Lost: a Poem in Ten Books' on 20 August 1667, and was published late in October or early in November. Sir John Denham is said (by Jonathan Richardson the elder) to have come into the House of Commons (which had reconvened on 10 October) carrying a sheet of Paradise Lost 'wet from the press' and proclaiming it 'part of the noblest poem that ever was wrote in any language or any age' (Masson, 6.628); by mid-November the poem was the subject of correspondence between John Beale and John Evelyn. The poem did not sell particularly quickly: between 1667 and 1669 six successive title-pages, each for a different issue, were required to sell the first edition of 1300 copies. The first three editions of Paradise Lost sold in modest numbers, but the fourth edition, a sumptuous gilt-edged folio published in 1 … [Click Below for Full Description]

BOR, Livinus.
Delft, Arnold Bon, 1663.12mo. Contemporary vellum (sl. soiled). With engraved title-page, woodcut printer's device on title and 6 folding engraved plates. (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). Arnold de Vlamingh van Oudshoorn was Governor of Ambon from 1647 to 1655. - Extremely rare.Ruinen A20; Landwehr, VOC, 233; Cat. KITLV p.32. [Attributes: First Edition]

[VOC] BOR, Levinus
Delft: Arnold Bon, 1663. Hardcover. Very Good. 12mo - over 6¾ - 7¾" tall. [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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Herschel, John Frederick William
 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 Northumberlan … [Click Below for Full Description]

PELSAERT, FranÁois
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 D … [Click Below for Full Description]

Johannes BLAEU (Alkmaar 1571 - Amsterdam 1663)
Opera tratta dal ?Theatrum Civitatum et admirandorum Italiae?, pubblicato 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 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.

Glauber (1604-1668) fu uno dei più importanti alchimisti del '600 ed ebbe un ruolo importante nella nascita della chimica moderna contribuendo alla conoscenza dei Sali di ammonio e del vetro solubile. scoprì il Sal mirabilis ossia solfato di sodio, che ancor oggi, se diluito in acqua è detto sale di Glauber. Nel Libellus Dialogorum, importante trattato di filosofia ermetica applicata alla medicina, due alchimisti discutono di medicina ermetica; nella seconda opera si disserta sulle proprietà terapeutiche di erbe e pietre, sulla Pietra Filosofale e da pag. 67 sulla Quintessenza dei metalli.DSB: "After 1662 Glauber was plagued with ill health?with more time for contemplation he began to emphasize the esoteric size of alchemy and to regret his years of toil in the laboratori...

Si tratta della storia di Medea che regala a Giasone la pozione magica per battere il drago che ? a guardia del vello d'oro. L'interpretazione avrebbe potuto anche confondersi con la scena del San Giorgio (considerato il fitto elenco di immagini relative a San Giorgio, a testimonianza della ricchezza iconografica a lui dedicata in Oriente e in Occidente), e comunque resta il tema eroico del guerriero di Dio in lotta con il mostro. Foglio rifilato al rame e quindi senza la battuta della lastra, alcune ossidazioni della carta e due piccole abrasioni percettibili soltanto dal retro, rinforzo su carta recente lungo i margini; al retro del foglio, curiosamente, un antico e ben eseguito disegno a matita rossa ripercorre in parte l'incisione ma con la sola figura del drago. Esemplare non ottimo ma in pi? che accettabile stato di conservazione.

Herbert of Cherbury, Lord Edward:
Amsterdam: Typis Blaeviorvm, 1663.. [4],231,[9]pp. Small quarto. Contemporary limp vellum, spine titled in manuscript. Early ink inscription on title, scattered foxing, O3v a bit soiled in lower fore-quadrant, occasional thin worm tracks in gutter or margin (touching just a couple of letters), faint old tidemark in lower fore-corner of text block and occasionally along top edge; still, a good, crisp copy. First edition. Posthumously published after being seen through the press by Isaak Vos. An English translation by William Lewis (THE ANTIENT RELIGION OF THE GENTILES AND CAUSES OF THEIR ERRORS CONSIDER'D) appeared in 1705. "In this work Herbert attempts to show that the evidence of actual religions, which he takes mainly from classical authors, confirms his thesis that the five common notions of religion are universally acknowledged. Data that seem to contradict this thesis are dismissed as arising either from priestly corruptions or from a failure to recognize symbolic usage" - DNB.

Bound in exceptionally fine binding and in very good condition with the bookplates of Daniel Henry Holmes, an avid book collector. This edition certainly is one of the rarest being that it is a first issue. A pirate copy came out the year before in 1662 and all proceeds from the sale of the book by the thief were recovered by Butler. Collation is as follows: [2 blank], TP, A3-8, B8-I8, K-R8, 2nd TP, B-I8, K-O8, P4, 3rd TP, A-I8, K-R8, S7, [2 Blank].Hudibras by Samuel Butler is a critique of the English Civil War and pokes at the Puritans and their military zeal to spread the word of God with Bible and Pike. This attractive printing and wonderfully bound copy of Butler's mock epic in octosyllabic couplets, its three parts first published in 1663, 1664 and 1678. Modeled after Don Quixote, the work satirizes the hypocrisy and self-seeking of the Presbyterians and independents represented by the title character, Hudibras and his servant Ralpho, demonstrating the pairs, greed, stupidity, cowardice and duplicity. Butler, a Colonel in the Cromwellian army is involved in any number of various comic misadv … [Click Below for Full Description]

(Kingma-Offenberg 1)First Edition of Spinoza's First Book - Explicating Descartes.Spinoza's first work is the only one published during his lifetime that identified him as the author and had the correct information on the printer-publisher. Spinoza's two later works (Tractatus & Opera) were very much his own radical thought (rather than a reworking of Descartes ideas as here) and so were necessarily published anonymously and listing false information about the printer-publisher on the title page. He radical nature of Spinoza's thought and the dangers of publishing such materials in this time and place are brilliantly explained in Jonathan Israel's Radical Enlightenment (Oxford, 2001). Here Spinoza presents an exposition of Cartesian philosophy but he has recast it using his own geometrical method of reasoning and presentation. The origins of this work are interesting and clearly explained by the author himself in a letter to his friend, Oldenburg, that was written shortly after publication: "Some of my friends asked me to make them a copy of a treatise containing a precise account of the Second Part of Descartes' Principia Philosophiæ [1644], demonstrated in the geometric style, and of the main points treated in metaphysics. Previously, I had dictated this to a certain young man to whom I did not want to teach my own opinions openly. They asked me to prepare the First Part also by the same met … [Click Below for Full Description]

A PRINTED LEAF FROM A BIBLE IN ALGONQUIN. (ELIOT'S INDIAN BIBLE)
Cambridge, Massachusetts: S. Green and M. Johnson, 1663. From the First Bible Printed in America 184 x 146 mm (7 1/4 x 5 3/4"). Double column, 62 lines of text and headline in roman type. Attractively matted. Darlow & Moule 6737. Lightly browned, but excellent. This is a very desirable leaf from Eliot's Indian Bible. In addition to its distinction as the first Bible printed in America, this book, in the words of Darlow & Moule, "constitutes the earliest example in history of the translation and printing of the entire Bible in a new language as a means of evangelization." Darlow & Moule adds that this Bible "was the first scripture printed in North America, and also the first version prepared for a pagan people in their own language. John Eliot performed the Herculean task of learning the difficult Algonquin tongue, of translating, unaided, the entire Bible in this unknown and unwritten language, of overcoming many technical difficulties, and of then teaching the Indians to read their own tongue. Samuel Green, the printer, was aided greatly by James Printer, an Indian compositor and corrector of the press. . . . The language is now extinct." Eliot (ca. 1604-90) was a Puritan minister in Roxbury, Massachusetts, who, beginning at age 42, studied for 15 years the Narragansett, or Massachusett, dialect of the Indian tribes in his vicinity. He worked for an additional eight years on his translation. Printing was begun in 1660 with equipment and supplies shipped from England by the Corporation for the Promoting and Propagation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in New England.

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.' . . .
