      Mariette, Pierre, Paris 1667 - "This map of 1667 has a simple wreath cartouche in the top right corner. The shape of the African continent is a little strange, with numerous coastal inlets. The rivers are distinct and noticeable and only the very large ones are named. No places, bays or rivers are named south of the Tropic of Capricorn, except for one cape on the east coast marked 'Prassum Prom'. Azania and Azanium Mare appear just below the Horn of Africa. All the inhabitants of southern Africa are labelled 'Anthropophagi Aethiopes' or cannibals.

        Publick Employment and an Active Life prefer’d to Solitude, and all its Appanages, such as Fame, Command, Riches, Conversation, &c. In reply to a late Ingenious Essay of a contrary Title.

      - By J.E. Esq; S.R.S. 8 p.l., 120 pp. 8vo, early 18th-century vellum-backed marbled boards (spine a little defective). London: J.M. for H. Herringman, 1667. First edition, first issue, written in response to George Mackenzie’s A Moral Essay, preferring Solitude to Publick Employment, And all it’s Appanages (1665). Mackenzie, a distinguished Scottish advocate, became known as "Bloody Mackenzie" for his harsh treatment of the Covenanters. His book betrayed the character of a bigot. "Perhaps it was his sense of this that incited Evelyn to compose in 1667 his reply [the present book] Evelyn’s advocacy of an active life might seem at variance with his known delight in country solitude and pursuits, and in truth his attack upon Mackenzie is but a half-hearted affair Evelyn’s little volume is attractive in a plain way."–Keynes, John Evelyn, 85 & pp. 185-87.

        A Still Life with grapes, plums, hazlenuts, chestnuts, blackberries, a melon, and a peach on a stone

      - Circle of Herman Henstenburgh (1667-1726) A Still Life with grapes, plums, hazlenuts, chestnuts, blackberries, a melon, and a peach on a stone Watercolor and pencil on vellum Vellum size: 9 3/4” x 12” Frame size: 20” x 22” Signed on ledge: Henstenburgh fecit/ 1761 This dramatic and finely rendered still life is an exquisitely rendered painting from the circle of one of the finest Dutch flower painters, Herman Henstenburgh. The watercolor is in the best tradition of Dutch still-life painting, replete with trompe l'oeil effects and startlingly realistic details, including a wonderfully delicate snail. The rich, dark brown background combines with the profusion of fruits to create a compelling image of warmth and bounty, while all meticulously detailed elements emerge with striking clarity from the dramatic dark background. This engaging and finely rendered still-life is a significant piece from the circle of the finest of Dutch flower painters. Henstenburgh was a pupil of Johannes Bronckhorst, a fellow native of Hoorn in the Netherlands. According to contemporary accounts, Henstenburgh started out by depicting birds and landscapes, in the manner of his teacher, and then broadened his repertoire to include splendid flower and fruit pieces, and occasional woodland still-lifes. For his flawless draftsmanship and vibrant colors, Henstenburgh won considerable renown even during his own lifetime. It is thus unsurprising that other artists should have emulated his style.

        Tabula Geographica Archi=Dioecesis Trevirensis Antiquo-nova 1667.

      1667 - Kupferstich-Karte von N. Person [?] bei Brower/Masen, datiert 1667. 25 x 39,7 cm (Karte), gesamt 32 x 39,7 cm. Im unbedruckten Randbereich Papierschäden, daher vollständig mit Japan hinterlegt. Hellwig, Mittelrhein und Moselland im Bild alter Karten, Nr. 48 mit Abbildung S. 108. Rosar 5.1.1. Die Karte zeigt das Gebiet zwischen Brüssel, Köln, Wetzlar, Heidelberg und Chalon sur Marne mit Trier im Zentrum. Die Städte sind mit dem lateinischen und dem aktuellen Namen bezeichnet, die Landschaften, Gebirge und Siedlungsgebiete der antiken Stammesverbände sind benannt. Oben rechts befindet sich die Titelkartusche, daneben das Wappen des Bistums Trier. Unterhalb der Karte befindet sich auf der selben Breite wie das Kartenbild eine Panoramaansicht der Stadt Trier über die Mosel hinweg. Die Darstellung zeigt das Gebiet zwischen St. Maria ad Martyres und St. Medard. Die Stadt wird mit ihrer Mauer, der Römerbrücke und den Abteien vor der Mauer gezeigt, Trier selbst wird beherrscht von der Gruppe Dom, Liebfrauen, Gangolf und Basilika. Am Moselufer liegen Lastschiffe, das Martinskloster mit seiner Mühle wird gezeigt. Die Karte ist erschienen in Christoph Brouwer und Jakob Masen, Antiquitates et annales Treverenses, Lüttich 1670. "Der aus Arnheim in Geldern gebürtige Jesuit Christoph Brouwer (1559-1617) vertrat seinen Orden in Köln, Fulda und Trier, dem damaligen Zentrum des rheinischen Jesuitenordens. Bis zu seinem Tode arbeitete Brouwer an seinem regionalgeschichtlichen Hauptwerk, den Annalen des Trierischen Stiftes, in dem die historischen Ereignisse bis zum Ableben des Verfassers festgehalten sind. Die erste Teilausgabe wurde zwei Jahre nach Brouwers Tod veröffentlicht, weil die kurfürstliche Zensur bestimmte Passagen des Werkes bemängelt hatte. Eine vollständige Ausgabe erschien aber erst 1670 nach zusätzlicher Bearbeitung durch den Jesuitenkollegen Jakob Masen, der die Trierer Geschichte bis 1652 fortsetzen konnte. Nikolaus Person (gest. 1710) stammte aus Longwy in Ostfrankreich und war seit 1668 am kurfürstlichen Hof in Mainz als Geometer und Ingenieur beschäftigt. Neben dieser Tätigkeit unterhielt er einen eigenen Verlag und eine Kupferstecherwerkstatt. Andere Illustrationen in diesem Buch sind signiert von Nikolaus Person oder Caspar Merian, dem Sohn des Matthaeus Merian (Kat.Nr. 4.1.1.a). Als vermutlicher Autor von Karte und Ansicht kann Person gelten; sie ist sein erstes bekanntes Werk. Das Datum der Karte (1667) zeigt, daß die Vorbereitungen zu diesem Buch schon einige Jahre vorher aufgenommen worden waren. Die Ansicht im unteren Teil der Karte nimmt eine besondere Stellung in der Tradition der Trierer Stadtdarstellung ein. Vorne links liegt St. Marien ad Martyres, ein Stück oberhalb ist St. Paulin im altem Bauzustand mit westlicher Doppelturmfront erkennbar. Das Gelände vor der Stadt ist in diesem Bereich durch Felder, Obstwiesen und Feldwege strukturiert, die in Ansätzen schon die späteren Straßenzüge von Paulin-, Zeughaus-, Maar- und Engelstraße vorzeichnen. Der 1646 vollendete Neubau St. Maximins taucht mit den umliegenden Häusern ein erstes Mal als Motiv einer Trierer Stadtansicht auf, ebenfalls der neue Westflügel der Abtei St. Martin von 1626. Das Äußere von Liebfrauen überrascht durch den fehlenden Westarm und die sehr hohen Kreuzarme nach Norden und Süden. Rechts von St. Gangolf ragt der kurz zuvor fertiggestellte Kanzlei- und Archivturm heraus, an dessen Seite man die Kurfürstliche Residenz nach den Umbauten von 1615 bis 1647 mit neuem Dach und Doppeltürmen im Süden der Anlage sieht. Der im Sturm geknickte Helm St. Irminens ist im wiederaufgebauten Zustand von 1638 abgebildet. Die geschweiften Giebel der Matthias-Westfront von 1650 sind demgegenüber nicht zu sehen; auch fehlen die alten Ruinen neben dem Richardsturm im Süden und auf der Moselinsel. Interessante Details sind die kleine Brücke neben St. Barbara und die Eintragung der Heiligkreuzkirche oberhalb von Löwenbrücken. Als eine der wenigen originalen Aufnahmen au

Physiologica in this sense included discourses on physics, chemistry, meteorology, medicine & related subjects as well as observations that we would still classify as physiology [eg dog's digestive system]. There are accounts of purely chemical research. According to Fulton "the importance of this work lies in the fact that in a very real sense it was a prologue to the Sceptical Chymist since it continued the attack on the alchemists began in New experiments, and actually it was as much of a landmark in the history of chemistry" [as those other works]. It gives the first clear outline of his corpuscular theory of the nature of matter (Fulton 29, Wellcome I 221, Garrison & Morton).

        Respuesta de Espana al Tratado de Francia Sobre law Pretensiones de.

      1667 - The Legal Arguments that Led to the War of Devolution [Ramos Del Manzano, Francisco (1604-1683)]. Respuesta de Espana al Tratado de Francia Sobre las Pretensiones de la Reyna Christianissima Ano M.DC.LX.VII. [Antwerp or Madrid]: N.p., 1667. [x], 285 fols. Copperplate pictorial title page. Folio (12" x 8"). Contemporary vellum, gilt frames to boards, lettering piece and gilt ornaments to spine. Some rubbing and soiling, chipping to spine along front joint, chipping to edges of lettering piece, boards slightly bowed. Minor worming to front hinge, interior otherwise fresh. Ex-library. Small embossed stamp to title page and seven additional leaves at rear. A handsome copy. * This appears to be the only edition of a set of legal arguments refuting France's attempts to lay claim to portions of the Spanish Netherlands. "Louis's claims to the Spanish Netherlands [in 1667] were tenuous. His wife, Maria Theresa, the daughter of Philip IV, had renounced her rights of a Spanish inheritance in return for a large dowry at the time of her marriage. The dowry had yet to be paid, however. When Philip died in 1665, Louis' lawyers justified Louis's possible claims by arguing that, while Spanish laws of succession meant the throne of Philip IV would pass to his son Charles II, ancient laws of Duchy of Brabant ruled that the Spanish Netherlands could 'devolve' to Philip's daughter from his first marriage, Louis's wife." (Wikipedia). Spain's refusal to acquiesce to Louis's demands led to the War of Devolution (1667-68). Francisco Ramos del Manzano was a lawyer, an eminent professor of law at the University of Salamanca and archdeacon of Malaga. He was a lawyer in the Council of Castile during reign of Felipe IV and was an instructor to Carlos II. The New Catholic Encyclopedia says he was "among the illustrious writers of treatises in the 16th and 17th century" and that he enjoyed "high prestige in the most distinguished circles of Europe." Peeters-Fontainas suggests this book was printed in Brussels while Palau says Antwerp. The copies listed on OCLC suggest Madrid. 4 copies located in the United States: UC Berkeley, UC Bancroft Library, Ransom Library and the Newberry Library. New Catholic Encyclopedia VIII 551.

      Paris: Chez Thomas Jolly, -1671. 1667 - Four volumes bound in three. [20],593,[3]; [16],539; [16],317,[8]; [6],362,[13]pp. plus eighteen plates (many folding) and five folding maps.

Final text leaf in first volume torn but no loss. Overall a fine, particularly fresh set in the original bindings. The best edition, after the original abridged edition of 1654. This extensive work is full of detailed descriptions of life in the French Antilles, including natural history, slaves, plantation activities, and the like. The fine engraved plates depict sugar plantation work, slaves manufacturing indigo, animals, spiders, land and naval battles between the French and British in the Caribbean, etc. The maps are of St. Christopher, Guadeloupe, St. Croix, Marigalande, and Martinique. "This voluminous account of the French settlements in the West Indies contains numerous passages which indicate the importance of tobacco in the political economy of the islands" - Arents. According to Rich, Dutertre was forced to publish the original 1654 edition before the work was complete: "The first edition of Father Du Tertre's HISTORY OF THE ANTILLES, or rather the project of that work, which the Rev. Father was obliged to put to press in haste, because he understood that some other person was about printing it under some other name, thereby depriving him of the credit of it." SABIN 21458.

        De statu imperii germanici ad Laelium fratrem, dominum Trezolani, liber unus.

      Verona (d. i. Berlin), Francisco Giulio, 1667. - Titel, (22), 234 SS., letzte 3 w. Bll. Mit Titelvignette (Armillarsphäre) und einigen ornamentalen Initialen und Zierstücken in Holzschnitt. [Vorgebunden] II: Speculi aulicarum atque politicarum observationum libelli quinque. Wittenberg, Andreas Hoffmann, 1599. 246 unn. Bll. (A-V12, X6). Mit einigen ornamentalen Initialen und Zierstücken in Holzschnitt und einer gedr. tabellar. Tafel. Pergamentband des 17. Jh.s mit übergreifenden Deckelkanten, verblaßtem hs. Rückentitel und Spuren von Rückenschildchen. Bindebänder fehlen. 12mo. Vermutlich erster deutscher (insgesamt fünfter) Druck der Erstausgabe von Pufendorfs früher Schrift, die er in Heidelberg als erster deutscher Professor für Naturrecht unter Pseudonym verfaßte. Voraus gingen vier Haager Drucke. "Die bedeutendste publizistische Schrift, die Deutschland im 17. Jhdt. hervorgebracht hat" (Breßlau, Monzambano-Literatur). Die rücksichtslose Kritik an den öffentlichen Zuständen des Deutschen Reiches, welche 1754 auf den ‘Index librorum prohibitorum’ gesetzt wurde (vgl. Reusch II, 173), erregte sogleich großes Aufsehen: "Die unter dem Namen Severinus de Monzambano veröffentlichte Schrift [.] zeigte die Irregularität der Reichsverfassung nach den Maßstäben des modernen souveränen Staates, wonach das Reich staatsrechtlich betrachtet einem Monstrum vergleichbar (monstrum simile) sei. Die Lehren Pufendorfs [.] gewannen in Deutschland beherrschenden Rang, der bis Kant fortdauerte, und beeinflußten die Theoretiker der amerikanischen Unabhängigkeitsbewegung" (Brockhaus, 17. A.). "Critical but faithful picture of the state of helplessness of the German empire, and of the misgovernment prevalent in most German states since the Thirty Years’ War" (Palgrave III, 241). - Vorgebunden ist eine frühe Ausgabe des als ‘Speculum aulicum’ bekannten staatsphilosophischen Compendiums, enthaltend die 5 Bücher: Friedrich Furius, "De conciliis & consiliariis principii"; Hippolytus a Collibus, "Consiliarius"; Ders., "Palatinus sive Aulicus"; Johannes Sturm, "Aulicus politicus Duri de Pascolo" sowie Francisco Guiccardini, "Hypomneses politicae" (mit: "Sententiae selectiores"). Spätere Ausgaben enthielten bis zu 13 Bücher; auch dieses Werk kam 1616 und dann wiederholt auf den Index - es dürften jedesmal insbesondere eben diese 5 Bücher gewesen sein, die "hauptsächlich das Verbot veranlasst haben" (Reusch). - Interessanter Sammelband, dessen Schriften die Scheidung des Rechts von der (protestantischen) christlichen Theologie vorbereiten. - Durchgehend leicht gebräunt und mit zeitgenöss. Anstreichungen. Altes Griffregister vor I. Insgesamt gutes, sauberes Exemplar. I: Weller I, 272. Vgl. Pütter I, 234. Stinzing/L. III/1, 19. Roscher, Gesch. der Nationalök. 318. Faber du Faur II, 1530a: "sensational book on the constitution of the Holy Roman Empire [.] the first work to condemn the ancient constitution from beginning to end". - II: Vgl. Reusch II, 174.

        Epistolarum medicinalium centuria IV .... -BOUND WITH- De insolitis partu humani ... accedunt ... Veslingi equitis de pullitie

      Hafniae, 1667-'64. First Edition. Full contemp. stiff vellum. A very good copy somewhat age browned. 8vo., There are text illus.. Two works of Bartholin bound as one. [1] This is volume 4 of Bartholin's collected medical correspondence (each collection is issued separately). The subject matter covered in the text is staggering in the range of topics (there is a subject index listing the correspondent). This volume contains Bartholin's exchange with Steno on the structure of the muscles of the heart (accompanied by a text illus.). The Krivatsy entry listing all four volumes as one work appears to be an error since they were issued separately as noted in Parkinson and Wellcome. [2] Bartholin's observations on parturition. Appended is a selection of Vesling's correspondence on obstetrics. The Vesling has its own title page but is integral with the Bartholin tract. This Vesling addenda is often missing. Both the Osler and Waller copies are lacking this portion of the text. Krivatsky # 830 & # 805; Parkinson # 193; Wellcome II, 108.

      The Anglo-Dutch Garden 74; Hollstein (Dutch & Flemish) XXV, p.295, 1667-1682; Springer, Bibl. Overzicht, pp. 43-44. A magnificent series of views of the house and gardens of "De Voorst'', the country estate of Arnold Joost van Keppel, Baron of Ashford, Margrave of Bury and Count of Albemarle, built by the architect Jacob Roman (1640-ca. 1716). Van Keppel (1669/70-1718), a favourite in the court of the Dutch Stadtholder Willem III, inherited the estate west of Zutphen in 1686. After the Stadtholder ascended to the English throne as William III in 1688, he bestowed numerous honours and titles on Van Keppel. Around 1700, largely at the King's expense, Van Keppel replaced the modest buildings and grounds with the lavish palace and gardens that came to be known as the Versailles of the Achterhoek. After the death of Van Keppel's widow the estate declined, parts were torn down in the nineteenth century, and the lavish interior was destroyed by fire in 1943. The estate still survives as restored in the 1950s and 1990s, but the present set of views gives a detailed view of the buildings, gardens and fountains when they were new. A very good series on good paper with generous margins, with only a few minor spots (one on the title-page and another in the clouds of one view), and light pencil marks on one view. Rare architectural and horticultural print series.

Michel Ange de Gattine, & Denys de Carli de Plaisance, capucins & missionaires apostolique audit royaume de Congo.Lyon, Thomas Amaulry, 1680. 12mo. Contemporary calf, gold-tooled spine. Re-backed.

      Borba de Moraes p. 153; Gay, Bibl. de l'Afrique et l'Arabe 3074; cf. Sabin 10909. The first French translation of a vividly written and very successful work that recounts the missionary voyage of 2 Italian Capuchin Fathers to Congo (1667-1669). It consists of letters written by Michele Angelo Guattini to his father during their voyage to Luanda (Angola), together with an account of their mission by his companion Dionigi de Carli. The Fathers sailed from Lisbon and called at Pernambuco, where they spent several months (which are described in full detail in Guattini's letters). When Guattini died shortly after their arrival at Luando, Carli continued the mission and graphically describes Congo's culture and natural history. Crossing the Atlantic between Africa and Brazil in a slave ship, he returned to Italy in 1669. Guattini's letters include noteworthy descriptions of Pernambuco "and the second known account of the city of Recife after the expulsion of the Dutch" (Borba de Moraes). Carli's description of his Atlantic crossing, moreover, provides rare details on the atrocities of the slave trade. The ship carried no fewer than 630 slaves, including children, transported "come il pesce ne'barili" (like fish in a barrel).Blank lower corner of title-page restored and some occasional spotting. Missionary voyage to Congo with an account of Pernambuco in good condition.

With an engraved architectural frontispiece by G. Wingendorp, engraved vignette with carpenters' and masons' tools on title-page, and hundreds of diagrams, measured drawings of columns, architectural ornament and other architectural elements, orthographic projections, etc., on 46 engraved plates (including 5 folding). 19th-century half cloth, paste-paper sides.

      Bierens de Haan 5021; Cat. Rijksmuseum III, p. 22; STCN (5 copies); cf. Berlin Kat. 2225 (1667 issue of 1664 ed.); not in BAL. Richly illustrated second edition of an architectural manual compiled by a master mason, first published in 1664 (the first edition was also reissued in 1667). Although the title-page calls it the first volume, Vermaarsch never published a second. He openly borrows from architectural classics, naming Scamozzi, Palladio and Viniola on his title-page. He discusses mathematical projection, architectural decoration, the five orders of columns of classical architecture, and more specifically the theories of Scamozzi, Palladio and Vignola, each treated in a separately paginated chapter. As a practicing master mason in Leiden the author's views are of special interest when he discusses the design of decorative brick and plaster work for bases and capitals of columns for doors, gateways, windows, etc., freezes, ceilings and other works of masonry. He notes that all these designs can be constructed with only the very simplest measuring tools. The plates clearly illustrate his points and provide numerous models for brick and plaster decorations. Very good copy with generous margins, with printed memorial label on the pastedown, stating that the book was presented to the mathematical society "Mathesis Scientiarum Genetrix" after Isaac La Lau's 1849 death by his son J.G. La Lau. Both were leading members of the society.

        Briefve description et demonstration des places et villes continuées en ce livre: exactement delinées comme elles sont à present. (colophons: Antwerp, Jacob Peeters, [1686/87?]). 2 letterpress parts plus 3 print series, the last in 5 parts, the whole in 1 volume. Small oblong folio (18×29.5 cm). Collection of 128 engraved prints published by Jacob Peeters. Late 17th- or early 18th-century sprinkled calf, gold-tooled spine and board edges. In modern half calf clamshell box.

      Atabey 933 (Dutch edition, 63 plates); Landwehr, De Hooghe Book Illustrator 82 (French ed., number of plates not specified); Weber 816 (Dutch edition, 125 plates); cf. Atabey 934; Blackmer 1276-1277; Nagler XI, pp. 165-166. Interesting collection of engraved prints centred around the Great Turkish War (1667-1683), a series of conflicts between the Ottoman Empire and Europe, with the letterpress text in French, but many of the captions to the prints in Dutch. The collection can be divided into 3 general parts: the first with equestrian portraits of the relevant monarchs and other leading figures on both sides of the war, the second with engraved scenes of the 1683 Battle of Vienna after Romeyn de Hooghe, and the third with over a hundred views of the cities involved. This last part contains 6 separate series, with views of Austria and Upper Hungary, Lower Hungary, Crete and the Maltese Archipelago, the Dardanelles and the Aegean archipelago, the Strait of Gibraltar and North Africa, and the Holy Land and Arabian Peninsula. Every copy varies in its make-up and the number of plates in the series of city views.The collection was published by Jacob (Jacques) Peeters (1637-1695), and most of the engravings are made 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 as can be seen in the present views, often depicting harbours with several ships. The plates with Dutch captions generally have a translation into French added in manuscript in the foot margin by a contemporary hand, sometimes with additional information. In very good condition, with a small tear in 1 leaf and a few minor spots. Binding scuffed at the edges, spine and front hinge restored.

        Le peintre converty aux precises et universelles regles de son art. Avec un raisonnement abregé au sujet des tableaux, bas-reliefs & autres ornements que l on peut faire sur les diverses superficies des bastimens. Et quelques advertissemens contre les Erreurs que des nouveaux Ecrivains veulent introduire dans la pratique de ces arts

      , 1667. 1667. Paris, Abraham Bosse 1667. Engraved frontispiece, (8),72,(20)pp. With an engraved dedication page. 8vo. Contemporary full mottled calf, spine and corners expertly restored. Some browning. Bound in at the end (the last 20 pages) are: 1 - A. Bosse au lecteur, sur les causes qu'il croit avoir euës, de discontinuer le cours de ses leçons geometrales et perspectives, dedans l'Academie Royale de la Peinture et de la Sculpture, & mesme de s'en retirer. Paris, A. Bosse, 1667. (15)pp. And: 2 - Discours tendant a desabuser ceux qui ont creu, que l'Auteur d'un Traité qui a pour Titre, Entretiens sur les vies et sur les ouvrages des plus excellens peintres anciens et modernes; avoit pretendu m'attaquer dans sa Préface. Paris, A. Bosse, 1667. (4)pp. This, scarce, book is writen in the form of a dialogue between Ariste, an amateur who would like to build, an architect, a painter, a "disciple" and the author himself. All the representatives of these different arts are asking for Bosse's advice. This allows Bosse to express once again his ideas regarding perspective in painting and architecture. Abraham Bosse, who was born in Tours in 1602 is best known as an engraver but he was also the first professor of perspective at the newly founded Académie Royale from 1648 to 1661 when he was forced to leave due to disagreements with other Académicians. The two addresses that follow the book explain why in Bosse's own opinion, he had been forced to leave his lob at the Académie and they also respond to comments made about Bosse by Félibien in the preface to the first part of the latter's Entretiens, published a year earlier. [c.f. Cicognara 91; Berlin cat. 2381; Abraham Bosse, Savant Graveur # 310, 311 & 312].

        Les Soliloques de Gerlac, Chanoine Regulier De l'Ordre de S. Augustin, Dit un Autre Thomas a Kempis [The Soliloquies of Gerlac, Canon Regular of the Order of St. Augustine, Said to be Another Thomas a Kempis]

      Chez Charles Savreux, 1667. Chez Charles Savreux. Hardcover. B00L4N42LU In French. 1667 first edition thus Chez Charles Savreux (Paris), 3 1/8 x 5 1/8 inches tall hardbound, marbled paper-covered boards over leather spine, elaborate gilt tooling and gilt-lettered black leather label to spine, marbled endpapers, sewn-in silk bookmark, [14], 87, [1], 338, [6] pp., complete (including blank front and rear endpapers). Covers only slightly rubbed and edgeworn, particularly at top of spine, but the binding is quite solid. Formerly in the collection of St. Augustine's Abbey, Ramsgate, East Kent, England (a Benedictine monastery whose remaining community moved in 2010 to an allied house in Surrey), with its white identifying marks to the lower spine, bookplate to front pastedown and red-and-black stamp to title page. The title page is lightly soiled, with a prior inscription partly erased. An occasional very slight instance of foxing, but overall a very good copy indeed - clean, bright and unmarked - of an exceptionally rare first French translation of 'The Soliloquies of Gerlac Peterson,' together with 'The Life of Gerlac' (probably translated from the Latin Chronicles of Windesheim) and a 12-page foreword. Neither OCLC nor Copac list any copies worldwide. Only the BnF catalog (Bibliotheque Nationale de France) locates locates a copy, at the BnF Tolbiac Rez-de-Jardin Rare Book Room in Paris. This work, 'Soliloquium cum Deo Ignitum,' was first printed in Latin in Cologne in 1616, in Flemish in 1623, in Italian in 1674 and in Spanish in 1686. This is the first French translation. ~KM2~ Gerlac Peterson (also sometimes spelled Petersz, Peterssen or Petersen; in Latin, Gerlacus Petri; 1377 or 1378-1411) was a Dutch mystic who was for most of his life a member of the Brethren of Common Life, where he devoted his time (with his brothers) to calligraphy, transcription of manuscripts, education and prayer. As a member of this order, he was associated with many illustrious contemplatives, including John of Ruysbroeck, Florence Radewyns, Henry of Kalkar, Gerard of Zutphen, John a Kempis and, perhaps most significantly from a modern view, with John's brother, Thomas a Kempis, now best known as the author of the devotional classic 'The Imitation of Christ.' Gerlac has been called 'another Kempis,' and indeed this is part of the title of this translation of Gerlac's 'Soliloquies.' A number of critics have ascribed to Kempis words or theories which belong to Gerlac. Gerlac left his brethren to come back to his cell, where, as he said, 'somebody was waiting for him.' It has been maintained that the 'Imitation' reproduced several ideas and the general spirit of Gerlac's ascetic works. In fact, Thomas a Kempis inserted into a copy of the 'Imitation' which he wrote in his own hand in 1441, a passage from Gerlac's 'Soliloquies' in which Gerlac says he would feel no pain, if necessary for the greater glory of God, to be in hell forever. This passage is an interpolation, which was deleted from subsequent copies of the 'Imitation' (produced at a time just prior to the invention of modern printing). It has been said that the difference between the ascetic theories of Gerlac and those of the author of the 'Imitation' are numerous and deep enough to make any similarities apparent. . Very Good. 1667.

Faded ink title to spine. With the dated 1668 bookplate of Francis, Provost of St. Cross at Augsburg (Franciscus D.G. PR Sanctae Crucis Auguste A 1668). An astonishingly clean and excellent copy.Of the utmost scarcity in the marketplace, with only two copies of this edition (and only two of the Rome edition) coming to auction within the last thirty-five years, one of which was wormed and browned in a modern binding."The Magneticum naturae regnum contains Kircher's final words on the principle of magnetism in nature. Much of the work repeats what was said earlier in his much more extensive Magnes sive de arte magneticum. Kircher discusses the role of magnetism in man (attraction and repulsion, friendship and hatred, likes and dislikes, sympathy and antipathy), in inanimate nature in animate or vegetative nature and sensitive nature He asserts that the principle of attraction and repulsion can explain the most obscure phenomena of physics and that there is no secret in nature that cannot be penetrated and understood by astute observation - an attitude characteristic of his time" (Merrill).Merrill 21.
