        Novum domini nostri Jesu Christi Testamentum Syriace, cum punctis vocalibus, & versione Latina Matthaei ... plene & emendate editum, accurante Aegidio Gutbirio.

      Hamburgi: Typis & impensis authoris, 1664. 8vo (17.2 cm, 6.75"). [32], 218, 281–604 pp. First edition of Gilles Gutbier's acclaimed Syriac New Testament, => produced at the author's own expense using types he cut himself. Gutbier (1617–67), a distinguished professor at Hamburg, was universally recognized as one of the leading Orientalists of his era. His work on this New Testament was based on all of the previously published Syriac editions and on two unpublished manuscripts, one of which had belonged to the emperor Constantine. Darlow and Moule note that Gutbier also includes the previously missing "five books, the 'pericope de adulter' and the 'comma Johanneum.'"    This copy has the additional engraved title-page (dated 1663) but is not one of the variant issues that include the supplementary pieces mentioned on that title. The printed title-page present here matches Darlow and Moule's state d.    Binding: Contemporary calf, round spine, gilt spine extra, handsome metal and leather closures with gilt tooling on the leather; very pretty, simple single gilt-roll border on each board. German floral paste-decorated endpapers and all edges red.    Provenance: Ownership signatures of I. Duvarus (1774); J.G. Drunnburg (1822) Johann O. Nordendam (1830) on front fly-leaf.         Darlow & Moule 8966; Graesse 103. Leather "shellacked" and shiny; volume now solid with front board reattached using the long-fiber method and areas of spine similarly improved. A sophisticated copy: four leaves of the prefactory matter (b1–4) are inserted from a small copy (possibly even a different edition). Some early underscoring; overall => very decent as a text and very attractive on shelf or in hand.

        [Ladimistri nel' archipelago].[The Netherlands(?), ca. 1720?]. Oblong folio (19.5 x 31.5 cm). Pen and blue-black ink-wash drawing on laid paper, showing the city of Edremit, its harbour and fortifications, with an Ottoman and a Dutch(?) ship, and a lighthouse, in a brown thick-thin-thin border, signed in the border below right, but difficult to read (I. P. Sto...?, I. P. Ste...?). Framed (37 x 49 cm).

      A detailed ink drawing of the harbour of and fortifications of Edremit, an Ottoman port city on the west coast of Turkey. The drawing is made after Johannes Peeter's print Ladimistri nel' archipelago, originally engraved by Lucas Vorsterman the younger and first appearing 1664/65 in the series Diverse vis te[!] delli Dardaneli del' dtrecio come delle città e castelli nel archipelago. The series was published by Jacob (Jacques) Peeters (1637-1695), and the prints were engraved after drawings by his brother Jan (Johannes) Peeters (1625-1677), best known for his drawings of city views engraved by Merian. Johannes Peeters was a pupil of their eldest brother Bonaventura Peeters, a well-known painter and draughtsman, and specialized in maritime scenes.Slightly browned and with a few small and mostly marginal stains. The foremost canon appears to have lost some of its ink, but the drawing is otherwise in good condition. The corners are damaged or discoloured from a previous mounting, far outside the border of the drawing.

      New edition revised, corrected and augmented with many historical dictionary, followed by two volumes of the Supplement.

Title pages in red and black.Binders of the time in full brown calf, back with six nerves decorated with gilded boxes and triple tail golden threads, parts of title and volume number in brown calf glued on the back, decorated with golden flower and framed double -filets golden, golden wheels on the cuts, all sprinkled edges red. boards very rubbed, caps often rubbed or leveled, small head wormholes backs of all volumes except the first volume of the Supplement several corners bumped.Published for the first time more than a century before the Encyclopedia, The Great Dictionary of Louis Moreri (1643-1680) is already looking to embrace more areas of knowledge between Sciences and Arts. Work recognized when for its wealth and erudition, his major challenge is to adopt an encyclopedic point of view to deal with subjects as diverse as history, geography, genealogy and religion. This effort is welcomed by publishers in the Epistle to the King, in which the book is described as "the Compendium of History richest & most extensive that we have seen seem."Work well complete reference of the two volumes of the Supplement.

Schorer studierte in Strassburg, betrieb zugleich auch astronomische Studien und veröffentlichte 1641 einen astrologischen Kalender, von dem 30 weitere Jahrgänge erschienen sind. 1643 brachte er in Basel zu, bereiste darauf Burgund, hielt sich einige Zeit in Montbéliard auf und begab sich hierauf nach Padua, wo er 1654 promovierte. Nach Deutschland zurückgekehrt, ließ er sich an seinem Geburtsort nieder, erwarb dort das Vertrauen des Herzogs von Württenberg. 1655 wurde er Stadtphysikus von Memmingen. Unter den medizinschen Schriften - von denen zweifellos die Pest-Schriften die wichtigsten und seltensten sind - verdient außer den hier noch vorliegenden, auch sein Buch "Medicina Peregrinantium, oder Artzney der Raisenden" von 1666 Erwähnung. (vgl. Killy Bd. X, S 374ff.).Omnibus-volume with 4 medical titles, including 2 very rare tracts on the black death. Contents see above. (III) and (IV) uncited by any bibliographers.

Oktav, 16,8 x 9,8 cm.-Der erste Band in erster Ausgabe, der zweite Band in zweiter Auflage dieser englischen Geschichtsdarstellung bzw. Autobiographie aus der Feder des Bischofs von Salisbury. Auf dem Titel von Band 1 der Stempel "Comtes Uechtritz-Amade, Boes" das Wappen des Einbandes konnten wir nicht identifizieren. Die 14 Porträts, gestochen von B. Picart, teils nach van Dyck und G. Kneller, zeigen Porträts von Jacob I., Charles I., Oliver Cromwell, Lord Clarendon, Count Essex, Queen Mary, Count Schomburg, William III. u.a. Die 4 Porträts im zweiten Band (Charles II., Jean de Wit, Frederick Duc de Schomberg und Arthur Comte d'Essex) sind in ähnlichem Stil gehalten, aber ohne Angabe der Vorlage und der Stecher. Eine zweite Ausgabe des Werks erschien beim gleichen Verleger im Jahre 1735 unter dem Titel "Histoire de ce qui s'est passé de plus mémorable en Angleterre pendant la vie de Gilbert Burnet". Demnach handelt es sich um eine Übersetzung der gekürzten, von Thomas Stockhouse herausgegebenen Ausgabe von Burnets "History of his own time", deren erster Band 1724 postum in London erschienen war und deren zweiter Band erst 1735 in London erschien. Dr. Johnson hatte zum ersten Band (der ungekürzten Ausgabe) geschrieben: "Burnets Geschichte ist sehr unterhaltsam. Dem Stil nach handelt es sich allerdings um reines Getratsche. Ich glaube nicht, daß Burnet absichtlich gelogen hat er war vielmehr so mit Vorurteilen befrachtet, daß er sich keine Mühe gab, die Wahrheit herauszubringen". Der englische Text der Autobiographie wurde immer wieder neu ediert und löste eine Flut von Pamphleten und Gegenschriften aus. Burnet (1643 - 1715) hatte bereits mit 13 Jahren seinen Magister Artium in Philosophie an der Universität in Aberdeen gemacht. Mit 18 promovierte er in Theologie. 1665 wurde er Bischof von Edinburgh und 1674 zog er nach London. Dort veröffentlichte er ab 1769 eine hochgelobte Geschichte der Reformation in England. In den Jahren 1685 bis 1688 bereiste er den Kontinent. Mit William setzte er 1688 nach England über und hielt 1689 die Krönungspredigt. Unter der Regierung von Queen Anne verlor er an Einfluß und widmete sich hauptsächlich seinen publizistischen Arbeiten. - Lowndes I, p. 320 f. (zur englischen Ausgabe und den Gegenschriften) - Barbier II, Sp. 664 (zum Übersetzer).

        Abbildung der kaiserklichen Freyen-Reichs-Wahl-und- Handelsstadt Frankfurt am Main mit ihrem Gebiet

      Artist: Homann Johann Babtiste (-1724) Nürnberg; issued in: ca1710 1664 - - technic: Copper print ; colorit: original colored ; condition: Very good ; size in cm : 50 x 57 - description: Map shows the city of Frankfurt with its surrounding and a total city view with magnificence cartouches - Vita of the artist: Johann Babtiste Homann (1664-1724) was born in Oberkammlach, the Electorate of Bavaria. Although educated at a Jesuit school, and preparing for an ecclesiastical career, he eventually converted to Protestantism and from 1687 worked as a civil law notary in Nuremberg. He soon turned to engraving and cartography; in 1702 he founded his own publishing house.Homann acquired renown as a leading German cartographer, and in 1715 was appointed Imperial Geographer by Emperor Charles VI. Giving such privileges to individuals was an added right that the Holy Roman Emperor enjoyed. In the same year he was also named a member of the Prussian Academy of Sciences in Berlin. Of particular significance to cartography were the imperial printing privileges (Latin: privilegia impressoria). These protected for a time the authors in all scientific fields such as printers, copper engravers, map makers and publishers. They were also very important as a recommendation for potential customers.In 1716 Homann published his masterpiece Grosser Atlas ueber die ganze Welt (Grand Atlas of all the World). Numerous maps were drawn up in cooperation with the engraver Christoph Weigel the Elder, who also published Siebmachers Wappenbuch.Homann died in Nuremberg. He was succeeded by the Homann heirs company, which was in business until 1848. The company was known as Homann Erben, Homanniani Heredes, or Heritiers de Homann abroad.
