Paris, Charles Savreux, 1666. 1 vol. in-12, maroquin noir, dos à nerfs avec titre doré, roulette dorée sur les coupes, roulette dorée intérieure, tranches dorées. Reliure de l'époque. (10) ff., 24 pp. (ajoutées : "L'Ordinaire de la Ste Messe), 435 pp., avec 1 fig. à pleine page (Ste Catherine de Gennes dessinée par Vallet gravée par Savreux). Les pp. 113 à 150 (Office des morts) sont reliées en tête (avant la p. 1). A partir de la p. 331 commence la 2nde partie intitulée Le Purgatoire de Sainte Catherine de Gennes, avec page de titre spéciale. Seconde édition, parue un an après l'originale. Claude de Sainte-Marthe, petit-fils du célèbre Scévole (1620-1690), succéda à Antoine Arnauld dans la direction des religieuses de Port-Royal de 1656 à 1679 (sauf de 1661 à 1669 à cause des persécutions). Ami intime de Pascal, celui-ci le voulut à son lit de mort en 1662. Ce traité de piété sur la mort chrétienne est écrit dans un style simple avec une volonté didactique et dans le but de montrer, à travers des textes forts, la vérité du Purgatoire. Il commence par l'Office de l'Eglise pour les morts (avec la traduction française) et la Messe pour le jour de la commémoration des morts. Viennent ensuite les traductions de quelques textes édifiants sur le sujet : Commentaire de S. Grégoire le Grand sur les neuf leçons de l'Office des Morts, Discours de S. Chrysostome, par lequel il exhorte les Chrestiens à ne point craindre la mort., Le Purgatoire de Sainte Catherine de Gennes, Sentimens de S. Bernard sur le Purgatoire, Traité de S.

[FESTIVAL BOOK / FIREWORKS / LEOPOLD I]
Vienna, 1666. Soft cover. Very Good. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. Folio [28.5 x 19.5 cm], (5) ff., including engraved frontispiece signed Melchior Küsell. (3) ff. of double-leaf folded plates also signed Küsell. Bound in patterned green wrappers. A fresh copy with excellent strikes of the plates. Very rare first and sole edition of the official festival program illustrating the firework display that marked the start of the month-long celebration of Leopold I's marriage to the Spanish Infanta Margaret Theresa, held in Vienna in the gardens of the Imperial Palace in December 1666. As the frontispiece and 3 double plates illustrate, and the accompanying text explains, the fireworks were arranged into an elaborate symbolic narrative, with fire representing the ardent love of the wedded pair, as well as the monarch's love for his subjects ("the Phoenix. consumes itself out of love for its people as the model of His Majesty"), their love for him ("ignit[ing] the flames of their most humble submission") etc. A re-creation of Mount Etna with the forge of Vulcan stands on one side, Mount Parnassus with the nine muses on the other, framing, in the foreground, two arches bearing hearts inscribed with the pair's initials, and set ablaze by the god of marriage. In our experience, firework displays accompanied by human figures forming tableaux are unusual. The text provides not only a very detailed description of each different kind of firework-including 'star fireworks', 'fire pumps', 'star grenades', and 'rockets'-but also describes the display in such a … [Click Below for Full Description]

The First edition of the Euclid to be edited by the great mathematician and astronomer, NICOLAUS MERCATOR (ca. 1619 - 1687), published in the same year as his election as a fellow of the Royal Society. Mercator's (not to be confused with the map-maker Gerhardus Mercator) contributions to astronomy were numerous and important, and his first book during his thirty year sojourn in England was HYPOTHESIS ASTRONOMICA NOVA (1664). Isaac Newton used Mercator's astronomical works "to fill gaps in his rather shaky knowledge of planetary and lunar theory ... [but] Mercator is remembered above all as a mathematician ... " - DSB. The publication of Mercator's small book LOGORITHMOTECHNIA in the year following his Euclid, is regarding as his most important achievement. His anonymously edited Euclid was published a second time by Martyn in 1678 -- but this First edition is very scarce: ABPC reports no copy at auction in the last 35 years

"Immediately after the Restoration he was made one of the king's chaplains, and reinstated in the possession of his prebend at Lincoln, but not of the archdeaconry of Stow, as he preferred holding his fellowship and vice-mastership in Trinity College.

HABRECHT, Isaac/STURM, J. C.
Nurnberg, 1666. * Houzeau & Lancaster 3039; Zimmer 5089 (1628 Strasbourg ed.); Poggendorff 1984. Warner, The Sky Explored, pp. 104-5.. Extremely rare German edition (a Latin edition was published the same year) of Sturm's enlargement of Habrecht's famous treatise on the making of celestial and terrestrial globes, published in 1628. The Habrecht family of clock and instrument makers were famous throughout Europe from the last quarter of the sixteenth century to the end of the seventeenth century. The author's father (also called Isaac) was responsible for making the monumental second Strasbourg clock which was one of the mechanical wonders of its time on the Continent. Isaac Habrecht (1589-1633) was a Strasbourg physician, mathematician and maker of globes. He was much influenced by Blaeu and Hondius, and his globes were highly regarded. J. C. Sturm was Habrecht's student and a scientist of vision. He organized the first scientific academy in Germany, the “Collegium Curiosum sive Experimentale” at Altdorf in 1672, and introduced the first course in experimental physics in a German university. In 1666, he undertook the task of augmenting Habrecht's original text and adding a number of folding plates. The plates include two handsome polar projections of the world, two polar stereographic celestial charts of the northern and southern constellations and ten folded engravings showing the various parts of his planiglobiums.The fourteen folded engravings, superbly executed by Jacob von der Heyden, were probably intended to be mounted and assembled to form several instruments, eac … [Click Below for Full Description]

Intricate gilt filligree work on the spine panels with no external lettering. Tillotson's "The Rule of Faith" is the first paginated section proceeded by a two page 'note' to Stillingfleet complimenting him on his work and explaining the need for his (Tillotson's) contribution and followed by a page of errata. This in turn is followed by Stillingfleet's work "A Reply to Mr. I. S his 3rd Appendix, Containing some Animadversions on the Book Entituled - A Rational Account of the Grounds of Protestant Religion."

Brännmärke i främre snittet och en bit in på pappret mot slutet. Hfrbd från 1700-talet, nött rygg med svart etikett och upphöjda bind. Lars Joh.

Med en hyllningshexameter av Loccenius. Ett av de första svenska konsekvent genomförda topografisk-antikvariska undersökningarna. Uppsala var dock ett känsligt ämne, inte minst mot bakgrund av Rudbecks snart publicerade Atlantica, och Schefferus arbete om Uppsala utgör startpunkten för den stora fejden mellan honom själv på ena sidan och Olof Verelius (och i bakgrunden Olof Rudbeck) på den andra om Uppsalas ålder och läge. Det gamla hednatemplet låg, påstod här Schefferus och stödde sig på bl.a. Ericus Olai, inte vid Gamla Uppsala utan inom den nuvarande staden Uppsala, och speciellt gammalt vad det inte heller, inte äldre än något före Kristi födelse

Rosende, Antonio Gonzalez de
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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

(6 ll.), 249, (2) pp. *** FIRST EDITION of this interesting contemporary analysis of the likelihood for lasting peace between France and Spain following the 1659 Peace of the Pyrenees, which ceded Roussillon to France, a symptom of the shift of European power from Spain to France. Giving a history of the long-standing enmity between France and Spain, Ribeiro de Macedo mentions French claims to Spanish territories in the Peninsula and outside it (including Rousillon and Cerdeña, pp. 54-8, and Navarre, pp. 58-66), as well as Spanish claims to French territory. A lasting peace with France would have meant that Spain could devote more effort to subduing Portugal.Ribeiro de Macedo (1618?-1680), advisor to D. Pedro II and ambassador to France and Spain, is best known for his efforts to end the economic crisis in Portugal during the second half of the seventeenth century. Defending the importance of industry to Portugal's future, Macedo outlined a plan for industrial growth and advised stimulating pri … [Click Below for Full Description]
