BAHA -AL-DIN AMELI, SHAIKH MOHAMMAD B. HOSAYN BAHA'I
[Near or Middle East], 1664. A VERY EARLY AND WELL PRESERVED COPY OF THIS IMPORTANT AND INFLUENTIAL MATHEMATICAL WORK BY SHAYKH BAHA AL-DIN (1547-1621), FAMED FOR HIS EXCELLENT COMMAND OF MATHEMATICS, ARCHITECTURE AND GEOMETRY, AND ONE OF THE EARLIEST ASTRONOMERS IN THE ISLAMIC WORLD TO SUGGEST THE POSSIBILITY OF THE EARTH S MOVEMENT PRIOR TO THE SPREAD OF THE COPERNICAN THEORY. Quintessence of Calculation was a highly influential mathematics textbook in Central Asia between the 17th century and the beginning of the 20th century. Its influence was partly due to the soundness of its mathematical algorithms resulting from Sheikh Bahai s mastery of mathematics, especially the one enhanced by al-Kashi, a celebrated mathematician in the 15th century. The study provides evidence that Sheikh Bahai studied al-Kashi s work. By utilizing these algorithms, Sheikh Bahai made the highly practical aspects of seven centuries of Islamic-culture mathematical achievements available to the region at large. Furthermore, the study concludes that the remarkable influence of Quintessence of Calculation can be attributed to the specific approaches of Sheikh Bahai s presentations of mathematical concepts and algorithms. His approaches are identified as a result of detailed analytical comparison between this book and a major book of al-Kashi. The study also provides a partial answer to the creativity of Sheikh Bahai that enabled him to author several educational books, including Quintessence of Calculation , which were highly influential for several centuries. Subsequently, the study identifies Shei … [Click Below for Full Description]

Saumur: 1664. [MACHIAVEL]. LE FEVRE, Tanneguy (trad.). Le mariage de Belfégor, nouvelle italienne. [Précédé de :] Les poètes grecs. Première partie [seule parue], Saumur : Daniel de Lerpinière et Jean Lesnier, 1664. Deux parties en un volume in-12, 139 et (20)-151 pages. Veau blond de l'époque, dos à nerfs orné, pièce de titre de maroquin bordeaux, roulette intérieure. Bel exemplaire. Deux petites restaurations marginales anciennes, sans atteinte. Première traduction française de ce célèbre conte de Machiavel. La Fontaine eut probablement recours à cette traduction pour composer "Belphégor", la vingt-septième fable du livre XII de son troisième et dernier recueil de Fables (1693). La première édition, parue anonymement en 1661, est rarissime et connue à seulement un exemplaire conservé à la BnF (un autre exemplaire répertorié dans le catalogue en ligne de la bibliothèque de Troyes semble douteux ou incomplet). L'avis au lecteur, qui a été supprimé des éditions suivantes, nous apprend que Tanneguy Le Fèvre traduisit cette nouvelle à la demande d'un ami. On peut imaginer que cette première édition fut publiée à faible tirage, peut-être à compte d'auteur. Dans cette seconde édition de 1664, le Mariage de Belfégor a été imprimé après la première édition d'un ouvrage composé quelques années plus tôt pour un élève de Le Fèvre, le comte de Limoges : Les poètes grecs. Ce manuel de littérature, fort original pour l'époque, devint célèbre pour son entreprise de réhabilitation de Sappho, entreprise poursuivie par la fille de Le Fèvre, la célèbre traductrice et éditrice Madame Dacier. … [Click Below for Full Description]

RUFUS, Quintus Curtius
Amstelodami: officina Elseviriana, 1664. 1664 Alexander the Great Curtius Rufus Greece ROME Schrevel Elzevier MAP Asia "Nothing can be lasting when reason does not rule." ― Quintus Curtius Rufus, Histories of Alexander the GreatThis famous and important work by Quintus Curtius Rufus was inspired by the celebrated Macedonian ruler Alexander the Great and was written, more than likely, during the reign of Caligula in Rome. The style of Quintus Curtius's writing was directly in line with Livy, whose work on the people of Rome greatly influenced the writing of "Histories of Alexander the Great." Curtius describes the strange and mysterious things that Alexander the Great encounters on his military expedition and does so with great historical acumen. This book, along with Livy and Tacitus, should always be considered part of the canon of ancient world texts.This 1664 Elzevier edition of the famed history of Alexander the Great was edited by Cornelius Schrevel. Schrevel editions are known to be highly popular and desirable Latin editions. It also includes an impressive, folding map of Alexander's conquests through Egypt and Asia which certainly contribute to Willems' description of it - "beautifully executed".Item number: #11305Price: $599RUFUS, Quintus CurtiusQ.

Nadányi, János (c.1643-1707)], [HOWELL, James, translator]
London: Printed by W. G. for Henry Marsh, 1664. [Hungarian History]. FIRST EDITION IN ENGLISH. Octavo (17 x 11cm), pp.[18] 32; 49-302 [2]. Later nineteenth or early twentieth century dark brown full calf with gilt titles to red label on spine. Several black ink ownership inscriptions to recto of the first original leaf, including a note recording payment for the book, possibly its very first purchase. Some old repair work to this first leaf. Textblock browned with some spotting, especially to preliminaries. Boards worn with some surface cracking to the leather, upper board bowed, some rubbing and chipping to extremities. Scarce with only ten copies recorded on copac. Nadányi's family had ruled his home town of Körösladány in Hungary since the thirteenth century, but during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries Turkish invasions radically altered the power dynamics of the area. János was sent to the Low Countries for his education, where he published this short history of Hungary in Latin in 1663. Having toured Europe, including England, where he likely arranged for this translation to be produced, he returned home to become a lecturer, and later a priest.

Il se faisait non seulement remarquer par sa tenue vestimentaire, habituellement composée d'une superposition de sept chemises, sept bas et sept calottes, mais aussi par son extraordinaire crédulité qui lui attira bien des moqueries de la part de ses contemporains."Voici l'écrivain le plus excentrique, le plus bizarre, le plus divertissant, le seul qui puisse enlever à Catherinot ou à Bluet d'Arbères, comte de Permission, le sceptre de l'originalité" (Dinaux).Sa vanité legendaire lui valut d'être la victime d'une célèbre supercherie: au moment du retour du premier ambassadeur de France en Siam, Alexandre de Chaumont, on fit croire à l'abbé que l'Empereur, ayant eu vent de ses qualités exceptionnelles, avait demandé au Roi de France la permission de le faire venir pour convertir à la foi chrétienne la population du Siam.Marque d'appartenance manuscrite à l … [Click Below for Full Description]

LUDERS, Theodoric.
Second edition of a beautiful wholly engraved book on practical mathematics, fortification, mensuration, weights and monetary values of the Netherlands, France, Italy and Spain. The first work, with hundreds of engraved geometric figures and diagrams; fortification plans, elevations, cross-sections and perspective views, and tables, covers geometry, arithmetic, trigonometry, mensuration and fortification. The second work expands the first's brief account of arithmetic and adds sections on weights, measures and monetary units for France, Italy, the Low Countries, England, Germany and Spain.The plates appear to have been originally produced and sold separately, as most plates have their own address, and one is dated 1664. Luders appears to have first published the Arithmetique in 1663 and the Mathematique in 1664. Another undated edition appeared ca. 1684.Small restored tear in the second title-page, slightly browned along the edges and some occasional minor spots. Binding restored and rebacked with original backstrip laid down. A good copy of a beautiful engraved book on mathematics and fortification.l Goldsmith BMC STC French L2095 & L2096; Graesse IV, p. 290; not in Honeywell; Kress; Norman Library; Osler.

TANGIER.]
London, for Samuel Speed, 1664. 4to, pp. [8], 84; with engraved portrait to p. [2], 'A Guyland, alias Gayland, the present usurper of the kingdome of Fez'; portrait neatly backed, quire A reinforced in gutter, a very few small spots and marks, last page slightly dusty; very good in modern calf, spine in compartments; very light wear to extremities.Scarce first edition of this entertaining account of Tangier, in north-western Morocco, during the English occupation of the city, which had begun in 1661 following Charles II's marriage to Catherine of Braganza, and which would come to an end in 1684. Described by the editor in his preface as 'outlandish', the work is a delightful mix of fact and fiction, and the earliest item on Tangier recorded on ESTC, besides a pamphlet entitled A brief relation of the present state of Tangier which appeared in the same year. It opens with a striking portrait of the Moroccan warlord Khadir Ghaïlan (known to English-speakers as Gayland) depicting him on horseback, heavily armed, before the walled city of Fez. A description of Tangier was published in the immediate aftermath of Gayland's victory over the English at the Battle of Tangier, in May 1664, at which the Governor Andrew Rutherford, 1st Earl of Teviot, was killed in an ambush, together with 400 men of his garrison. In spite of these unpropitious circumstances, the editor clearly had hopes for the English Moroccan foothold, writing in the preface 'here is set down the great passage to the wealth of Affrica'.Following a brief overview of Tangier, the text turns to Gayland (who is compared … [Click Below for Full Description]

Solothurn?, 1664. 18 nn S., 44 (recte 46) S. Broschur berieben, bestoßen, fleckig, mit kleinen Einrissen und auf der Rüäckseite mit etwas Verlust. Innen etwas gebräunt. Einer von 2 Drucken im gleichen Jahr, hier ohne Verlag und Ort. Der zweite Druck von Michaelm nWehrli für Johann Jacob Bischof mit abweichender Pagination. Johann Georg Wagner war als Sekretär der Nachfolger von Franz Haffner als Stadtschreiber von Solothurn. Er war als Sekretär der eidgenössischen Delegation verantwortlich für die Reise und die amtliche Darstellung des Empfanges am Hof. Daneben schildert er den Glanz dieser Pariser Wundertage in möglichst grossem Abstand vom schweizerischen Alltag. Die Reise, den Einzug in Paris, die Empfänge beim König, das Essen, eine Theateraufführung bei Moliere, aber auch die Räubereien und Taschendiebe auf den Straßen von Paris, den Spott der Franzosen über die Bärte der Eidgenossen, die Dreistigkeit der Frauen. Neben den Gesandten der katholischen Orte stellten auch Zürich, Bern und Biel Delegationen. Für die Eidgenossenschaft war der ausgehandelte Vertrag eine vollkommene Niederlage, erlaubte er doch dem König seine Einflussbereiche an den Grenzen zur Eidgenossenschaft uneingeschränkt geltend zu machen. 1732 erschien in Bern bei Hortin eine Neuausgabe des Textes. Sehr selten. VD17 23:288573T. Sprache: Deutsch Gewicht in Gramm: 1100 20 x 16 cm, Broschur ohne Einband [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

1664. La Perpétuité de la foy de l'Église catholique touchant l'Eucharistie, avec la Réfutation de l'écrit d'un ministre [Claude] contre ce traité, divisée en trois parties. [Par P. Nicole et A. Arnauld.] Paris : C. Savreux, 1664, format In-12, pièces limin., 495 p, Collationné complet, intérieur en excellent état sans aucun défaut (très rares rousseurs), reliure de l'époque en très bon état. Authentique édition originale comportant des correction manuscrites anciennes qui n'apparaîtront que dans la deuxième édition publiée la même année et ne comportant que 475 pages et une table supplémentaire. Description en photos ici: https://photos.app.goo.gl/oWjyIwXwpBuF0DqF3 L'ouvrage est une réponse au livre du ministre protestant Claude, qui lui-même était une attaque contre un livre d'Aubertin. L'oeuvre d'Arnaud et Nicole dépasse le simple cadre de la polémique et de la contestation des arguments du livre de Claude, il se veut un traité exhaustif de l'eucharistie et des mystère de la saint messe en accumulant les preuves historiques, notamment celles empruntées à l'église d'orient. Arnauld et Nicole, théologiens de Port-Royal, se firent les champions de la querelle religieuse contre les protestants. L'eucharistie était un point du dogme catholique intouchable, le nier comme le firent les protestants, c'était remettre en cause le principe de la transsubstantiation avec le corps du Christ et la possibilité de la grâce, et démonter les rituels de la messe et sa nécessité. C'est pourquoi la littérature polémiste sur l'eucharistie et la grâce est si importante, les deux églises n'auro … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ferguson II, p. 215-16 for earlier editions. Caillet 8851, note. Duveen p. 481 for other editions. The nice engraved title depicts the author at work in his laboratory. Later edition of the most famous work of the Italian natural philosopher and scientist Giambattista della Porta (or Giovanni Battista Della Porta) (1535-1615). It was first published in 1558 in Naples, consisting then of only four books. It was later expanded, reaching twenty books in 1589. Ferguson writes that Della Porta "made long journeys in search of natural knowledge, and formed an Academy of the Secrets of Nature in his house at Rome, which was supressed of course. His work is entitled 'Magia Naturalis' and it is divided into twenty books according to subjects. This is a more comprehensive work than some of his predecessors, but I cannot say that in its contents it is much more sensible. It had its share of popularity, however, passed through many Latin editions, … [Click Below for Full Description]

SHAKESPEARE, William.
London: Printed for P.C. 1664 (first-issue title: Philip Chetwinde, 1663). Median folio (329 x 212 mm). Early 19th-century blind-tooled russia, edges gilt (sympathetically rebacked), dark green endpapers, gilt edges. Housed in a dark brown quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. Sig. Z6 supplied from a shorter copy, B1 with long tear skilfully mended with loss of one letter, six small rust-holes and 11 small paper flaws affecting approximately 20 letters, a few short marginal repaired tears, some occasional minor dust-soiling, otherwise a fine fresh copy. First-issue title in the state without the portrait bound at front, 514 leaves: complete. Roman and italic text types, cursive for headings, various larger romans and cursives in the preliminaries. Double column, 66 lines, headlines and catchwords, pages box-ruled, woodcut head- and tailpieces and initials, Shakespeare's portrait in third state. Third folio edition of Shakespeare's plays, generally regarded as the rarest of the 17th-century folio editions. An unknown number of copies is thought to have been destroyed in the Great Fire of London of 1666. The third folio is a reprint of the second (1632), but the second issue adds seven plays to the corpus, although of these only Pericles is now considered authentic. The first issue came out without the added plays and with or without the portrait on the 1663 title. The second issue, as here, added the seven plays and is known with the frontispiece-portrait captioned by Jonson's verses cancelling the "To the Reader" leaf and the 1664 title cancelling the 1663 ti … [Click Below for Full Description]

He spent all his time gathering material and working on the present herbal.It was first published in two volumes in 1588-1591, after Tabernaemontanus had worked on it for 36 years, but he would die before the publication of the second volume.

Later nineteenth or early twentieth century dark brown full calf with gilt titles to red label on spine.Several black ink ownership inscriptions to recto of the first original leaf, including a note recording payment for the book, possibly its very first purchase.

Nadányi's family had ruled his home town of Körösladány in Hungary since the thirteenth century, but during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries Turkish invasions radically altered the power dynamics of the area. János was sent to the Low Countries for his education, where he published this short history of Hungary in Latin in 1663. Having toured Europe, including England, where he likely arranged for this translation to be produced, he returned home to become a lecturer, and later a priest. [Attributes: First Edition]

In answer to Ruse, Gerard Melder, director of the fortifications and the battalion of the city of Utrecht, published the present "Short and clear instruction" in which he clearly taught and illustrated the well-tried Dutch system of fortification, which had helped the Dutch win their war of independence from Spain.

With an engraved title-page by Melchior Küsell and 168 figures (I-CLXIV & A-D) on 27 double-page plates (A-Bb including W, & "zwischen O und P"), engraved by Christoph Stenglin. 18th-century blue paper over boards. Engraved title-page + [10], 98; 62; 26, [2] pp. First edition of an important German work on fortification, with 27 folding plates. It forms a complete handbook in three parts, the first covering fortifications of both regular and irregular form, the second covering siege techniques and the third the defence of cities and fortifications. Christoph Heidemann (d. 1684) was military engineer to the Elector of Bavaria. He was a follower of Daniel Specklin (1536-1589), but introduced many improvements in technique and equipment. Like Antoine de Ville (1596-1656), he strongly recommends the construction of orillons at the corners of fortifications to cover the flanks, an idea the Dutch school had rejected. The 168 fine-line engravings include many fortification plans, sections, elevations and views, mostly with scales, but also illustrations of building techniques and equipment, palisades, tunnels, facilities for supplying water, etc. The last plate is signed by Stenglin, perhaps indicating that he engraved them all.With some worm holes in the gutter and a stain at the foot of the gutter, both mostly confined to t … [Click Below for Full Description]

Amsterdam: Sweerts, 1664. The Extremely Rare First Edition of an Important Baroque Carving BookOblong 8vo.

Each set of instructions is supported by finely engraved plates, almost all of which indicate the various cuts to be made, with each incision numbered. The engraved title shows a gentleman at the table with a carver standing beside … [Click Below for Full Description]
