        Vida i Virtudes del illmo. i excmo. Senor D. Iuan de Palafox i Mendoza.

      Julian de Paredes, Madrid 1666 - Folio, half-title, frontis. portrait, title, ff. [28], pp 534 (actually 532: error in pagination), ff 12 (index). First biography of Palafox, written at the behest of the cardinal of Toledo, Moscoso y Sandoval, who had been one of Palafox's greatest friends. Fr. Gonzalez de Rosende was a franciscan friar, professor of theology at the university of Alcala de Henares, prefect of his order in Spain, and commissar of the Inquisition. Palafox y Mendoza was Bishop of Puebla, Mexico, Archbishop-elect of Mexico, Viceroy, etc., etc. One of the most important figures of colonial Mexico, Palafox (1600 - 59) was a Spaniard, abandoned as an infant, in a basket no less, but rescued and adopted into a noble family. He rose quickly to prominence, and was sent to Mexico as bishop of Puebla. There he founded, among many other accomplishments, the Biblioteca Palofoxiana, still in existence. He quickly came into conflict with the regular clergy, who had enormous power in Mexico and were a world and law to themselves. Palafox tried to bring them under the control of the secular authorities, i.e. the bishops. For a time he had the suport of the king and even the pope, until he tangled with the Jesuits, whose power was too great. He was abruptly called back to Spain and the bishopric of Osma, which was seen as a demotion, and certainly marked the end of his political power. Of notable sanctity, he received the necessary votes for beatification -- the first step to sainthood -- but Pope Pius VI suspended final decision. This work of Rosende was reprinted in 1671in Madrid, and in the 18th century as vol. xiii in Palafox's collected works. The printing of this volume is of superb quality, as are the frontispiece portrait of Palafox and the engraved title page with vignette, both of which are signed in the image. Very uncommon title in the market, as well as rare at auction (2 copies since 1950, neither in anywhere near good condition): Worldcat notes library holdings of 5 copies. Very nice copy in a later, fine full dark speckled-calf binding with raised bands, fleurons, etc. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        Traité des maladies des femmes. Reveu, augmenté d'annotations, et traduit en françois par J.B. .

      Paris, Robert de Ninville, 1666. - in-8, (16), 620, (12) pp., pleine basane marbrée du temps, dos à nerfs orné, tranches rouges, quelques épidermures sur les plats, quelques feuillets brunis, bon exemplaire. Seule édition ancienne de cette traduction française, très rare. Le traducteur, qui a signé la dédicace, est Jean Bonamour. Cet ouvrage est divisé en trois livres : le premier est essentiellement consacré aux affections utérines ; le deuxième à la stérilité, à la grossesse, aux fausses couches, aux grossesses gémellaires, monstrueuses, et le dernier traite des lésions du sein et de l'allaitement. L'auteur est le premier à utiliser le terme de chlorose ; il conseille, dans cette affection, du bon vin, des fruits secs et des viandes "délicates & rosties". Il décrit les convulsions de l'éclampsie. Il estime que "le f¿tus dans la matrice ne vit que par le moyen de la mère", que le décès de la mère entraîne donc celui de l'enfant et que la césarienne est par conséquent inutile dans ce cas ; par contre, il estime la césarienne nécessaire " si l'enfant ne peut sortir autrement, quoy que la mort de la mere s'ensuive, parce qu'il vaut mieux en conserver un, que de perdre les deux".

        Domini nostri Iesu Christi Testamentum novum Turcice redittum. Opera [William] Seaman.

      Oxford: H. Hall 1666 - FIRST EDITION, Latin title, followed by Turkish title and text in Arabic script, slightly browned around the edges, a few spots, including rust spots with the occasional loss of a letter or two, tear in lower margin of 3h3, not affecting text pp. [iv], 160, 600, small 4to, contemporary blind ruled calf, a bit worn at corners, skilfully rebacked, Macclesfield bookplate and blind stamps, with a number of corrections to the text in a contemporary hand, very good ‘In December 1655 Seaman was appointed secretary of the trade committee (which met at Westminster) at a yearly salary of £100. Some years later he became involved in an international project of evangelization of the Levant, originating in the circle of Samuel Hartlib, whose millenarian convictions included belief in the imminent conversion to Christianity of the Muslims and a determination to hasten the process. In England the plan was fostered by Hartlib himself, Henry Oldenburg, John Durie, and above all Robert Boyle, with Edward Pococke and John Worthington taking a marginal role. It obtained even more support in the Netherlands, thanks mainly to the Bohemian scholar Jan Amos Comenius and the French refugee Petrus Serrarius. A fundamental role was to be played by the translation of the Bible into Turkish. The Dutch, who relied on a Polish convert to Islam in Constantinople, were slow, however, and only the Old Testament was completed. Boyle then turned to Seaman, who had already translated the Johannine epistles into Turkish in 1659, asking him to translate the entire New Testament. By 1664 Seaman had done so and two years later his translation was published at Boyle's expense in Oxford, making Seaman the first European to publish a Turkish translation of the New Testament’ (Alastair Hamilton in ODNB). Scarce.Like so many books from the Macclesfield library, this is an interesting copy. At the end of the text there is an oval medallion stamp giving the title of the work in Turkish, indicating that this was one of the copies intended for export. We don’t know when it entered Shirburn Castle, but it seems more likely than not that it ever strayed very far from its place of printing. Scattered throughout the volume are corrections to the text, and in one place a marginal note in Turkish. In collating we have noticed these on 15 pages, sometime two or three to a page: a really painstaking examination would probably discover more, since some of them are very slight, just a letter. In addition, starting about half way through the volume, there are numerous dots placed right by the fore-margin which will have some significance. The notes are accomplished in a practiced hand, and such a hand was not in abundant supply in England in 1666. One candidate for the notes is Edward Pococke, and intriguingly the initials EP appear in MS in a couple of combinations on the inside back cover. But they are next to what seems to be a collation note and perhaps signify something pertaining to their acquisition rather than ownership. We are grateful to Professor Gerald Toomer who has looked at the inscriptions, concluding that as regards Pococke ‘the verdict is non liquet.’ (Darlow and Moule 9345; Madan 2727 ‘A noticeable volume, as being the first New Testament printed at Oxford’; ESTC R31588, recording 5 copies outside the UK, 2 in Germany, and 3 in the US: Huntington, Texas, and Yale)

      Paris. 1666-1672.. Four volumes. Includes eleven maps and twenty-one plates, with many in- text illustrations. Fourth volume lacks two leaves of Mexican hieroglyphs. Without the map of Japan, but with two copies of the Tasman map of Australia, in the first and third issues. Folio. 18th-century calf, spines gilt; rebacked with original spines laid down. Bookplate on front pastedowns. Light toning and foxing. Very good. A handsome set of Thévenot's significant and wide-ranging compilation of voyages and travels to the New World, Australia, Asia, the East Indies, the Far East, and Africa. This work is an essential document for the study of European discovery and exploration to all areas of the known world in the early modern period, reprinting numerous texts first published in several countries in a variety of languages. Complementing the texts are maps, plates, and in-text illustrations documenting voyages and explorations, geographic areas, coastal profiles, flora, fauna, native costumes and customs, and exotic alphabets and languages such as Chinese, Chaldean, and Mexican pictographs. Most significant among these are two different issues of the first map to show a separate Australian continent, by Abel Tasman. Melchisedech Thévenot (ca. 1620-92) was a French author and scientist. He is well known for his work on THE ART OF SWIMMING (1696) and for his invention of the bubble level. Additionally, he compiled this important collection of travel narratives which contains many important maps, including the Abel Tasman map of Terra Australis and some of the earliest and most detailed depictions of the Middle East. This work is particularly valuable for its content on China and the East Indies. Included here is a lengthy geographical description of the Chinese empire by Martino Martini, the Jesuit missionary and historian. Martini (1614-61) spent most of the last twenty years of his life in China, studying the country's history and geography in an objective manner, making his account incredibly useful to scholars both then and now. Accompanying Martini's work is a large and detailed map of China; there are several other sizable maps of the East Indies present as well, showing India, the Philippines, and Ethiopia. American voyages are discussed in the preliminary "Avis" in the beginning of the work, and the primary texts of New World interest are found in part four. These include Acarete du Biscay's VOYAGE...A BUENOS AIRES SUR LA RIVIERE DE LA PLATE, first published in Paris in 1672 (which itself includes Juan de Palafox y Mendoza's "L'Indien, ou Portrait au naturel des Indiens"); a marvellous forty-six-page woodcut facsimile of the CODEX MENDOZA taken from the London 1625 edition of Samuel Purchas' PURCHAS HIS PILGRIMES; and Thomas Gage's RELATION DU MEXIQUE, ET DE LA NOUVELLE ESPAGNE, an abridged translation of Gage's THE ENGLISH-AMERICAN, HIS TRAVAIL BY SEA AND LAND which was first published in London in 1648. Beyond the Americas, the work includes François Pelsart's account of the discovery of Australia, complete with the rare map based on the explorations of Abel Janszoon Tasman. One of the first charts to show parts of the Australian coastline in detail, it records part of the coast of New Guinea, Tasmania, and much of the east coast of Australia. It is a basic work of Australian cartography, present here in both the first issue, with incorrect latitudes, no Tropic of Capricorn, no rumb lines, and without Tasman's track, and its third issue, with the Tropic of Capricorn inserted and with the rhumblines. "In any state the map is a great rarity. It is one of the earliest charts devoted entirely to Australia, and is the first French map of Australia" - Davidson catalogue. Other historical relations include accounts of Egypt, accompanied by plates of the pyramids and mummies; travels into various portions of the Asian landmass, including Russia; voyages sponsored by the Dutch East Indies Company; and different expeditions to China. The work is extremely complex bibliographically, as different parts were reprinted to accompany texts issued in later editions. "There is really only one edition of Thévenot's collections, issued in five parts between 1663 and 1696. Part one was first issued in 1663, part two in 1664, part three in 1666, part four during 1672-4, and part five in 1696. During the course of publication, the parts of the collection already published were reissued with new titles pages in 1664, 1666, 1672, 1683, and 1696. Some sheets were reprinted for these reissues. The contents and arrangement of individual copies vary" - EUROPEAN AMERICANA. This copy conforms to the "second issue" of the first three volumes, all dated 1666, with the fourth volume appearing in its first issue and dated 1672. The Lenox Library's account of Thévenot, compiled in the 19th century, remains the best source in its delineation of the various segments and configurations. The maps are an invaluable source of information. According to the Lenox Library collation, all maps here are present excepting a map of Japan. However, the Tasman map of Australia is present in two copies, in both the first and third states. The maps are as follow: 1) "Carte de la Colchida." 14 x 18 inches. Accompanies text on travels to Georgia and the Caucuses. 2) "Description de la partie des Indes Orientales qui es sous la domination du Grand Mogol." 14 x 17 inches. Map showing the northern part of the Indian subcontinent as controlled by the Mughal Empire. 3) "Vera delineatio civitatis Bassorae nec non fluuiorum...." 13 1/2 x 16 inches. An engraved plan of the city of Bassora and its environs. 4) "Terre Australe." 16 1/2 x 22 inches. The rare first state of the Abel Tasman map, the first map of Australia. 5) "Terre Australe." 16 x 28 inches. The third state of the Abel Tasman map. 6) "Ioao Teixeira cosmographo de sua megestad Afez em Lixboa...." 29 x 21 inches. Showing the eastern coast of Africa. 7) "Muro que por entre serras se continua por mais de 360 leguas fi zer...." 21 1/2 x 28 1/2 inches. Shows Borneo, the Philippines, and the eastern coast of China. 8) "Route du voyage de Canton a Peking." 10 x 26 inches. The route of the Dutch Ambassadors. 9) "Imperii sinarum nova descriptio." 19 x 25 inches. A large map of China and the southern portion of Japan, quite detailed. 10) "Carte d'Ethiopie et de l'empire des Abyssins, autrement du Prestre-Jan...." 13 x 16 inches. Map of Ethiopia and the Abyssinian Empire. 11) "Entre'es quelques ports de la Mer Rouge de coste de l'Ethiopie...." 10 1/2 x 14 1/2 inches.

        Tractatus de Corde. Item de motu & colore sanguinis et chyli in eum transitu.

      FIRST EDITION, second issue (see below) of ?the most important contribution to circulatory physiology after William Harvey?s De motu cordis, published three years before Lower?s birth. Nobel Laureate André Cournand considered Lower?s book to be one of the most important texts in the history of physiology because of the nature of its observations, the rigor of its experimental design and demonstrations, and its simple and convincing form of presentation...?Lower entered medical practice in London in 1666 and continued experiments he had begun in Oxford on the motion and color of the blood and on transfusion. His observations on these subjects were summarized in Tractatus de corde.?Lower made important observations on the structure of cardiac muscle, the quantity of blood in the vascular system, the velocity of blood flow, and the effects of aeration of blood as it passed through the lungs. He was impressed by the complex arrangement of muscular fibers in the heart and felt their unique arrangement was responsible for the contraction of the ventricular cavities in systole that propelled blood into the vascular system. In a series of experiments performed with Robert Hooke, Lower showed that the red color of arterial blood was due to its contact with ?fresh air? in the lungs. His book also contained observations on the technique and safety of blood transfusion, a technique he pioneered? (W. Bruce Fye in Grolier One Hundred (Medicine).There are two issues: in the second issue, the original leaf A6 has been replaced by a cancellans in order (according to John F.

He studied law but became a courtier in Spain and Florence and was known as the author of poems and prose works in both the Tuscan and the Neapolitan dialect. With Giambattista Basile whom he had known as a boy in Naples he was responsible for laying the foundations for the artistic and literary dignity of the Neapolitan language. Despite the statement in the title that this is the fifteenth edition of the Opere, no earlier editions of either the collected edition or the single works are listed in the Italian libraries (ICCU). In the Bibliotheque Nationale there is a made up edition dated 1645 - 1652 published by Cavallo in Naples. In our edition the title pages are all dated 1666. It contains the following works: [1]: Micco Passaro nnammorato. Poema eroico di Giulio Cesare Cortese; [2]: La rosa fauola di Giulio Cesare Cortese; [3]: La vaiasseide poema, di Giulio Cesare Cortese. Il pastor Sebeto, a compita perfettione ridotta, con gli argomenti, & alcune prose di Gian Alesio Abbattutis. Dedicata al potentissimo re de' venti; [4]: Li trauagliuse ammure de Ciullo, e Perna de Giulio Cesare Cortese; [5]: Viaggio di Parnaso poema, di Giulio Cesare Cortese; [6]: Lo cerriglio ncantato poema eroico di Giulio Cesare Cortese. Brunet, II, page 314, cites only our edition of the Opere but mentions an edition of La Rosa of 1621 and an edition of La Vaiasseide of 1628. BOUND WITH, No. 2: I CANTICI DI FIDENTIO GLOTTOCHRYSIO, et d'altri celeberrimi ludimagistri. Novamente impressi & locupletati. Dedicati alli Discepoli della Scola Fidentiaca. Vicenza, Domenico Amadio, 1614. Anonymous and generally attributed to the Vicenzan poet Camillo Scrofa (Scroffa). 12mo, Italian text, printer's pictorial device to title page, another different one to final page, woodcut head and tailpieces, pages: (12), 119, (1). Title page a little spotted and laid down on old paper, upper and fore - edge margins slightly trimmed, couple of tiny inkspots to 2 pages, no loss of legibility, 2 tiny holes in margin of first text page. These Cantici belong to a minor genre of Italian poetry known as Fidentian which originated as a vehicle for homosexual themes that within the larger context of burlesque poetry have given rise to Burchiellesque and Bemesque poetry. Its initiator was Camillo Scroffa (1526 - 1565) who probably composed I Cantici di Fidentio when studying law (1545 - 50), and first published them in 1562 in an edition of some 29 pages. They are supposed to have been written by an "amorous pedant" Fidentio Glottochrysio who is hopelessly in love with the handsome Camillo Strozzi. The anthology amounts in the main to an anti - Petrarchan pamphlet, poking fun at well - worn conventions of love poetry, while at the same time it is a satire on the excessive preoccupation with classical antiquity into which the humanists had fallen, both from a linguistic standpoint and in view of their exaltation of the so - called Socratic love. What came to be known as Fidentian poetry - which is technically the opposite of macaronic poetry, which mixes vernacular elements into Latin, instead of vice versa - was cultivated even before the first authorized edition of the Cantici in 1562, and lasted until the beginning of the eighteenth century. With numerous additions from different poets this anthology was reprinted many times and was still in print in 1781. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE. FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST.

        Asia Portuguesa

      Lisboa: Henrique Valente de Oliveira & A. Craesbeeck, 1666-, 1675. Three volumes, quarto, each with an engraved ornamental title-page; a complete set with 19 engraved and woodblock folding plates (one in duplicate, for a total of 20 plates), numerous woodblock portraits throughout the text; some browning and intermittent water-staining, early ownership inscriptions on title-pages affecting paper; a very good set in attractive eighteenth-century speckled calf, spines gilt with raised bands and original black leather labels. The Portuguese empire in Asia: ritual and customs in India, China, and Southeast Asia. Rare and influential history of the Portuguese empire in Asia, with rich and vibrant descriptions of ritual and customs in India, China, and Southeast Asia. Manuel Faria y Sousa (1590-1649) wrote this history in the tradition of the sixteenth-century masterpiece Décadas da Asia by João de Barros; Boies Penrose characterised him as 'the last writer to attempt a chronicle of the Portuguese empire in the grand manner…' (Travel and Discovery in the Renaissance, p. 283). Avid chronicler and polyglot, Faria y Sousa lived in Madrid for most of his life in the service of the Spanish Crown. Here he collected books, dispatches and manuscript materials of all kinds in preparation of his chronicle of the Portuguese empire across the globe. Accordingly, Asia Portuguesa is of significant historical value for the detailed list of works included in the third volume: 'Included in this bibliography are most of the books then in print which related to Asia, as well as manuscripts prepared by officials and missionaries in the field' (Lach and Van Kley, p.355). Like many contemporary Portuguese scholars, Faria y Sousa wrote in Spanish for an increasingly cosmopolitan audience curious about the exotic customs of India and the far east. Asia Portuguesa was an important text in disseminating information on the religious and ritual practices of India, China, Japan, Ethiopia and Ceylon. His inclusion of Hindu rites in Malabar did much to inform (sometimes misinform) European perceptions of Hinduism. Some years earlier, Faria y Sousa had translated the work of the Jesuit missionary Alvarez de Semedo who worked in China, which became an important source for the present work: 'the chapters on China… also form an ethnohistory of the Ming' (Lach and Van Kley, III p.1568). The scope of Asia Portuguesa is impressive, combining mercantile and military geographical detail and rich descriptions of native life. After the revolt of Portugal from Spanish dominion in 1640 the author suffered for his long-term association with the Royal Family. On his decease in 1649, Faria y Sousa's significant archive of books and manuscripts returned to the custody of his son who prepared the present work for publication. It was republished several times in Spanish and an English translation by John Stevens was published in London in 1694-95.

The miraculous conformist: Or an account of severall marvailous cures performed by the stroaking of the hands of Mr. Valentine Greatarick . . . 4to. [6], 44pp. Oxford: H. Hall for Ric.

Stubbe, a physician in Stratford-on Avon, attributed the "stroking cures" of Valentine Greatrakes to miraculous agency. The pamphlet prompted David Lloyd to respond with the anonymous Wonders no Miracles, an attack on Greatrakes&#39;s character; this in turn inspired Greatrakes to publish his own Brief Account (1666), which included testimonials regarding Greatrakes&#39;s cures from Robert Boyle, Andrew Marvell and over 50 other reliable witnesses.</p>

        Brief mit eigenh. Paraphe.

      Prag, 7. V. 1666.. 1½ SS. auf Doppelblatt. Folio. Mit Adresse und papiergedecktem Siegel.. An Graf von Oppersdorff mit der Benachrichtigung über einen Befehl Seiner Majestät hinsichtlich des "Bierschancks", über den Beschwerden aus Troppau eingegangen waren, der vorsieht, daß "höchstschädliche hinterungen deß bier Urbars" einzustellen seien und "auch die im Lande eingeschlichnen Pfuschereyen Gäntzlich eingestellet werden". - Der älteste Sohn von Fürst Karl I. stand zunächst unter der Vormundschaft seines Onkels Fürst Maximilian; 1632 wurde er für volljährig erklärt, und in Troppau und Jägerndorf, den beiden Herzogtümern Liechtensteins, vollzogen die schlesischen Stände die obligatorische Huldigung. Karl Eusebius' vorrangiges Ziel war "die Konsolidierung seiner durch den Dreissigjährigen Krieg verwüsteten Besitzungen. Finanzielle Probleme erwuchsen ihm auch aus den Gütererwerbungen seines Vaters, deren Rechtsgültigkeit von der Hofkammer bezweifelt wurde. Die daraus resultierenden Schadensersatzforderungen beliefen sich auf rund 1.7 Millionen Gulden. Dennoch war es dem Fürsten möglich, beträchtliche Summen in seine kulturellen Neigungen zu investieren. Mit dem Ankauf ausgesuchter Gemälde, von Bronzen, Gewehren und kostbaren kunsthandwerklichen Erzeugnissen legte er den Grundstein zu den liechtensteinischen Sammlungen" (www.liechtenstein.li). -Etwas angestaubt und papierbedingt gebräunt, stärkere Faltspuren, sonst wohlerhalten.

        Description de la France équinoctiale, cy-devant appelée Guyanne, et par les espagnols, el Dorado. Nouvellement remise sous l'obéissance du Roy. Avec la carte d'iceluy, faite et présentée à sa Majesté par l'auteur. Et un discours très utile et nécessaire pour ceux qui voudront établir des colonies dans ces contrées ; qui les détrompera des impostures dont tous ceux qui en ont parlé ont rempli leurs écrits ; et leur fera connaître la force, le nombre et le naturel des Indiens de cette coste, & ce qu'elle peut produire d'avantageux pour le commerce de l'Europe.

      Paris, Jean Ribou 1666 - In-4 [215 x 155 mm]. Collation : 52 pp., 1 carte dépliante. Vélin. Edition originale. Rarissime. Joseph-Antoine Lefebvre de La Barre, maître des requêtes et intendant du Bourdonnais, forma en 1663, une nouvelle Compagnie pour la colonisation de la Guyane. Ce projet, soutenu par Colbert, reçut promptement son exécution; en 1664 deux vaisseaux débarquèrent à Cayenne un premier détachement de colons. Revenu momentanément en France en 1665, La Barre écrivit, pour la mettre sous les yeux du Roi, la "Description de la France équinoctiale" dans laquelle il rend compte des résultats qu'il avait obtenus et y exposait ses espérances pour l'avenir de la colonie. La guerre ayant éclaté entre la France et l'Angleterre, Cayenne fut attaquée et prise, et la plupart des ses nouveaux habitants emmenés prisonniers. Illustré par une grande carte dépliante (600 x 595 mm) dressée sur les mémoires de La Barre et gravée par Mel. "Cette pièce est extrêmement rare; les exemplaires en sont généralement dépourvus." Leclerc, Bibliotheca Americana 1524. "The author, founder of a colony in Guyana in 1664, wrote this work in order to excite a more general interest, especially to gain the protection of the King himself for his colony, giving at the same time an account of his enterprises and results, and explaining the favorable prospects of the new colony. But his hopes were not fulfilled, the colony was taken by the English in the following war, and nearly all of its inhabitants were murdered or imprisoned." Sabin 38403.

Goos's atlases are the most aesthetically pleasing of the early Dutch sea atlases. Koeman notes that "The... beautiful sea-atlas reflects a high professional standard. The many editions published over twenty-five years are an indication of the customers' appreciation". In keeping with the idea that the work was designed for the libraries of the wealthy as opposed to the ship's navigator, copies can be found in attractive contemporary colour, as is the case in the present example. Koeman IV Goos 1B; Bosch, Bibl. Brasiliana 132 (with foldout col. ill.); Phillips 473.

        Ad Alexandrum VII Obelisci aegypytiaci nuper inter Isaei romani rudera effossi interpretatio hieroglyphica

      , 1666. 1666. Further Study Of Hieroglyphics By the Great KircherKIRCHER, Athanasius. Ad Alexandrum VII Obelisci aegypytiaci nuper inter Isaei romani rudera effossi interpretatio hieroglyphica. Romæ: ex typographia Varesij, 1666.First edition. Tall quarto (13 7/16 x 9 7/16 in; 341 x 238 mm). [28], 146, [6 as index], [1, sonneto], [1, blank] pp (xxviii, A4 - S4). Extra engraved title page, vignette title page, ten copper engravings including eight full page. Numerous woodcut illustrations. Woodcut initials.Contemporary full calf. Expertly rebacked and recornered to style. Engraved title page washed. Internally quite clean. Withal, a fine copy."The first attempt to decipher hieroglyphics, based on the assumption that they were indeed phonetic symbols, was made by the German scholar Athanasius Kircher (1602&#150;80) in the mid-1600s [who] began his attempts at decipherment with the Coptic language and with the correct hypothesis that the hieroglyphs recorded an earlier stage of this language. He also believed, again correctly, that the signs recorded phonetic values" (Encyclopeadia Britannica Online). "A linguist of great ability, Kircher&#146;s translations of hieroglyphics were based entirely on these preconceived notions as to their symbolic functioning. Kircher does however hold an honored place in Egyptological circles, since he authored the first Coptic grammar and vocabulary" (Parsons, Hieroglyphics and Their Decipherment, http://www.touregypt.net/featurestories/Hieroglyphics.htm)."Kircher&#133;published two more books contributing to his study of Egyptian artifacts in Europe: the Ad Alexandrum Obelisci Aegyptiaci interpretatio hieroglyphica (Hieroglyphic Interpretation of the Egyptian Obelisk for Alexander VII), of 1666, which described and interpreted the obelisk erected atop Bernini&#39;s elephant in front of Santa Maria sopre Minerva for Alexander VII in June 1667; and the Sphinx mystagoga of 1676&#133;" (Findlen and Huismann, The Last Man Who Knew Everything, p. 33)."The toppled and broken obelisk had been discovered in a building excavation in 1666. Alexander VII commissioned Kircher to interpret the inscriptions on the three visible faces of the obelisk; the fourth could not be seen until the obelisk was erected&#133;Kircher interpreted the three sides and then, on the basis of these, constructed a probable inscription for the fourth. According to Kircher&#39;s account, recorded in his Obeliscus aegyptiacus (1666), when the obelisk was raised, his hypothetical inscription was found to match exactly that found on the fourth side" (Merrill, pp. xxiv-xxv).Brunet III, 668.
