        The Land & Kingdom of Candia.

      Wenceslas Hollar,, London, 1668 - Hollar's exceedingly scarce broadside of Crete and the Cretan War Two engraved maps on one map sheet, inset views of Canea (Chania), Retimo (Rethimno), Candia (Heraklion), Suda (Souda), and port of Suda (Souda), inset plans of Candia (Heraklion) and Canea (Chania), trimmed to image, a few minor losses skilfully repaired in facsimile. Hollar's rare broadsheet documenting the Cretan War (1645-1669). The Cretan War (1645-1669) Although most of Crete was conquered by the Ottomans in the first few years of the war, the fortress of Candia (modern Heraklion), the capital of Crete, resisted successfully. Its prolonged siege, "Troy's rival" as Lord Byron called it, forced both sides to focus their attention on the supply of their respective forces on the island. For the Venetians in particular, their only hope for victory over the larger Ottoman army in Crete lay in successfully starving it of supplies and reinforcements. Hence the war turned into a series of naval encounters between the two navies and their allies. Venice was aided by various Western European nations, who, exhorted by the Pope and in a revival of crusading spirit, sent men, ships and supplies "to defend Christendom". Throughout the war, Venice maintained overall naval superiority, winning most naval engagements, but the efforts to blockade the Dardanelles were only partially successful, and the Republic never had enough ships to fully cut off the flow of supplies and reinforcements to Crete. The Ottomans were hampered in their efforts by domestic turmoil, as well as by the diversion of their forces north towards Transylvania and the Habsburg Monarchy. The prolonged conflict exhausted the economy of the Republic, which relied on the lucrative trade with the Ottoman Empire. By the 1660s, despite increased aid from other Christian nations, war-weariness had set in. The Ottomans on the other hand, having managed to sustain their forces on Crete and reinvigorated under the capable leadership of the Köprülü family, sent a final great expedition in 1666 under the direct supervision of the Grand Vizier. This began the final and bloodiest stage of the Siege of Candia, which lasted for more than two years. It ended with the negotiated surrender of the fortress, sealing the fate of the island and ending the war in an Ottoman victory. In the final peace treaty, Venice retained a few isolated island fortresses off Crete, and made some territorial gains in Dalmatia. Hollar on the broadside provides an extensive introduction to Crete including it's history, inhabitants, natural resources, climate, geographical features,and its principal cities. Hollar goes on to discuss the number of Venetian soldiers garrisoned on the island - said to be 12,000 men, in order to "keep their owne Highland-Candian's in subjection who are naturally. bloodthirsty and deceitfull seeming to rather favour the Turke rather than the Venetian". He ends the text with a brief discussion of the Turkish invasion, which consisted of 60,000 men, with only the ports of Heraklion and Souda holding out against the invaders. The text below the plans of Heraklion and Chania reports on the final siege of 1668, with the defendants still holding out. The city would fall the following year. Rare we are only able to trace three insitutional copies: The Royal Collection, Windsor; The Britih Museum; and The Czech National Library. Pennington 691.

        Opera Philosophica, Quae Latinè scripsit, Omnia. Antè quidem per partes, nunc autem, post cognitas omnium Objectiones, conjunctim & accuratiùs Edita. [8 parts]. [Including "leviathan" for the first time in Latin].

      Amsterdam, Apud Ioannem Blaeu, 1668. 4to. All eight parts bound in two excellent, contemporary full vellum bindings with yapp edges and neat handwritten titles to spines. Some sections of leaves quite browned, due to the paper quality, but the greater part of the leaves (and all the plates) is crisp and bright. An excellent copy. Woodcut printer's device to title-page, woodcut initials an vignettes, woodcut and engraved text-illustrations (diagrams). (4) pp., folded engraved portrait of Hobbes (W. Faithorne sculp)folded, 40 pp. + pp. 40,b-m, pp. 41-44 + 2 plates; 146 pp. + 1 blank + 1 plate; (8), 261, (1) pp. + 1 blank + 13 plates; 86 pp. + 1 blank + 8 plates; (16), 174 pp. + 1 blank; 42 pp. + 1 blank + 1 plate; 64 pp + 5 plates; (4), 365, (15 - Indices, incl. errata and "Scripturae Sacrae") pp. + 1 blank. - I.e. fully complete, with all 30 folded, engraved plates (depicting diagrams), all half-titles, and all blanks. Conforming exactly to the Macdonald&Hargreaves collation (our copy without the "Quadratura Circuli", which, according to Macdonald&Hargreaves, is "probably a later insertion", but which "is included in some copies and has a title-page of it's own". Copies without this part, which does not actually belong to the edition, are early and more desireable. Most copies have this later inserted part and thus 31 plates). ¶ The extremely scarce first edition of the first collected edition of Hobbes' works, being the most desirable, the most sought-after and by far the most important. It is to this collected edition that one still refers when quoting Hobbes' works academically. It is furthermore here that Hobbes' seminal main work, Leviathan, appears for the first time in Latin.It is a great rarity to find all eight parts of this seminal edition, all of which were probably also sold separately from the printer, together and complete. Another edition of the work appeared later the same year, also with Amsterdam, Blaeu imprint, but actually printed in London. That edition, which is the one found in most library-holdings, is much more common and far less desireable, albeit still rare. "Il faut voir si les huit parties indiquées sur un f. après le frontispiece sont réunies dans l'exempl. Il y a une édit. moins complète faite à Londres, sous la même dat; on y lit sur le frontispice, après le nom de Blaeu: "prostant etiam Londini apud Corn. Bee". Le portrait de Hobbes, par Faithorne, a été ajouté à quelques exemplaires." (Brunet III:239-40)."According to Macdonald&Hargreaves, "[t]here seems to be no uniformity in the order of arrangement of the eight sections of this work. We have seen three (2 vol.) copies bound in the order given on *2r (q.v. in contents) and have arranged the collaction the same way." Our copy is bound in exactly this way. The hugely important "Opera Philosophica... Omnia", or "Opera Omnia" as it is often referred to, constitutes Hobbes' only successful attempt to have his philosophy published during the period. In 1662 the Licensing Act, a statute requiring that all books had to be approved in advance of publication by the Archbishop of Canterbury or the Bishop of London, was enforced, after which Hobbes found himself completely barred from having his political, theological, and historical works published. After his hugely successful 1668 Latin "Opera Omnia", printed in Amsterdam, he did not dare publish his works abroad either, however, and the "Opera Omnia" remained the only important philosophical or political work of his to be published during the period. It was a great sales success. The most important part of the 8 part comprising "Opera Omnia" is the 378 page long final part, which constitutes the editio princeps of the Latin translation of Hobbes' groundbreaking main work, the work from which the "social contract" theory originates, his seminal "Leviathan."The Latin "Leviathan" was published towards the end of 1668 within the framework of an edition of Hobbes's collected Latin works, the so-called "Opera Omnia" [i.e. Opera Philosophica... Omnia], published with Johan Blaeu in Amsterdam. "Leviathan, sive De Metria, Forma, & Potestate Civitatis Ecclesisticae et Civilis. Authore Thoma Hobbes, Malmesburiensi" is the eighth and last piece of this collection and the only one published there (in Latin) for the first time; it is therefore the only text to receive (on its last page) a list of errata. The three chapters making up an "Appendix ad Leviatham" (and replacing the "Review and Conclusion" of the English edition) need not detain us here, as they are proper to the Latin version. We only want to note in passing that the few translations from the English "Leviathan" contained in the last chapter of his "Appendix" was worked out independently of the translation and in fact prior to it." (Rogers, Karl Schuhmann, "Thomas Hobbes Leviathan, Vol. 1", p. 241).Not only is this the first Latin edition of Hobbes' main work, it is furthermore of great importance to the study of the Leviathan and to the understanding of the development of Hobbes' thought. All later editions of the Latin version of "Leviathan" are greatly corrected and none of them appear in the same version as the present one, which provides us with the text in the form that comes closest to what Hobbes himself desired his masterpiece to be. "[...] Given these results, we may conclude that LL [i.e. the 1668 Latin Leviathan] should be counted an important source for the text of the English "Leviathan". LL is definitely more than a translation that teaches us little or nothing about the text translated. On the contrary, it is based on an independent manuscript copy of "Leviathan", and more specifically on a copy Hobbes had kept with him all the time and had apparently continued to annotate and correct. The variants of LL must therefore be treated with the greatest care wherever there are textual problems in "Leviathan", and not only in those cases in which the text of all English versions is defective. Even where it is a matter of deciding between given variants, LL should have an important, if not decisive voice. Given the fact that LL was worked out integrally by Hobbes at a rather late date, it must also be considered to contain his last decisions regarding the text as a whole. (Rogers, Karl Schuhmann, "Thomas Hobbes Leviathan, Vol. 1", p. 249).Soon after this first Latin edition, many others appeared:"So far, when speaking of LL [i.e. Leviathan in the Latin version] and quoting this work, we have always and only been referring to its 1668 edition as published within Hobbes' "Opera Omnia". But there were also other editions after that date. The first of these appeared in 1670 as a separate edition. It has, unsurprisingly the same imprint as the 1668 edition, for it was published as before with Johan Blaeu, who only added to the title page the bibliographical information "Amstelodami, Apud Joannem Blaeu. M.DC.LXX." Another separate edition was published "Londini. Apud Johannem Tomsoni. M.DC.LXXVI." and a third one, also with John Thom(p)son, "Londini Typis Joannis Thomsonii, M.DC.LXXVIII."." (Rogers, Karl Schuhmann, "Thomas Hobbes Leviathan, Vol. 1", p. 250).Macdonad&Hargreaves: 104; Brunet III:239-40.

        Histoire naturelle des animaux, des plantes et des minéraux qui entrent dans la composition de la thériaque d’Andromachus.

      Olivier de Varennes, Paris 1668 - Pleine basane de l'époque, dos à cinq nerfs orné et doré portant la pièce de titre. Un volume in-12 (153x88 mm), frontispice, (26)-310-(9)-(1 bl.) pages Coiffes abimées et coins usés, mors fendus mais solides. . Édition originale. Moyse Charas, « savant apothicaire », ouvrit une officine à l'enseigne « Aux vipères d'or » dans le faubourg Saint-Germain à Paris avant d'être nommé par Antoine d'Aquin en 1671 comme sous-démonstrateur de chimie au Jardin du Roy. Charas reste surtout connu pour sa Pharmacopée royale galénique et chimique, rédigée d'après les cours qu'il avait dispensés au Jardin royal. La pharmacopée de Charas connut trois éditions (la première en 1676) et fut traduite dans toutes les langues d'Europe, ainsi qu'en Chinois. La thériaque, l'une des compositions les plus complexes que la pharmacie ait connues et dont l'origine remonte à plus de vingt siècles, jouissait au Moyen Age d'une renommée universelle comme panacée que l'on appliquait à toutes sortes de maladies. Elle était censée posséder des vertus admirables pour la vieillesse. On l'utilisait aussi comme contre-poison. La thériaque originelle est celle d'Andromaque, médecin de Néron. La recette, complexe fait appel à des substances appartenant aux trois règnes de la nature (la vipère y figurait en tête de la formule). Au commencement de l'année 1667, Charas « dispense et achève publiquement », à Paris, en présence des magistrats, des médecins de la cour et de plusieurs membres de la Faculté de Médecine, la composition de 300 livres de thériaque. La formule de la thériaque étant complexe et les composant couteux, la réalisation publique était destinée à éviter les fraude. C'est suite à cette réalisation que Charas publie en 1668 notre ouvrage sur ce sujet. Il y décrit précisément la composition et la réalisation de la thériaque. Exemplaire très frais, presque sans rousseur. ___________________________________________________________________________________ ______________________________ENGLISH_DESCRIPTION______________________________ ___________________________________________________________________________________ Contemporary full sheep, spine gilt in six compartments, title in gilt on lettering-piece. 12mo (153x88 mm), frontispiece, (26)-310-(9)-(1 bl.) pages Caps and corners worn, lower joint starting to crack but sound. . Rare first edition. Theriac was a universal potion. It was the panacea that is applied to all kinds of diseases. It was also supposed to possess admirable virtues to extend life. It was also used as against poison. There were many different receipt of theriac, but that of Andromachus is the original. Charas became famous by public meetings where he prepared and explained the Theriac. In this book Charas gives the receiped of the Andromachus Theriac. In 12 / 12mo 230g.

        Paradise lost. A Poem in Ten Books. The Author J.M.

      London: Printed [by Samuel Simmons], and are to be sold by Peter Parker; and by Robert Boulter; and Matthias Walker,, 1668. Small quarto (173 x 126 mm). Sometime skilfully rebound to style in old sprinkled sheep, unlettered, double blind rules. Housed in a brown quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. Without the initial blank. Margins trimmed without text loss though touching top rule border on a few leaves, contents generally clean, title leaf with single tiny wormhole at top, bottom edge slightly shaved, and fore edge reinforced on verso, overall very good. First edition, with Amory's first issue title page. The bibliographer Hugh Amory argues for this being the earliest issue of the first edition of Paradise Lost (despite its title page, dated 1668), in which the anonymous author is identified only by his initials, "J.M." This is the same form by which the author is identified in the Stationers' Register, 20 August 1667. Amory speculates that Samuel Simmons, the printer and publisher of the first edition, decided against using Milton's full name on the title page "as the day of publication approached", substituting this version on which the author remained anonymous. Simmons's faltering confidence is understandable because Milton, a prominent supporter of regicide (specifically the execution of Charles I), was still widely regarded as a dangerous radical when Paradise Lost was first published. The contract for the publication of Paradise Lost between Milton and the stationer Samuel Simmons is the earliest agreement between an author and a publisher for which there exists documentary evidence. Sealed on 27 April 1667, it specifies a first edition of 1,300 copies. The first edition did not finally sell out until the spring of 1669, and six successive title pages were used to promote its sale in that time. These are traditionally described as six distinct issues, though there is no discernible relationship between the states of the titles and the settings of the preliminaries, and so "issue" is over-specific. Some copies have seven additional preliminary leaves, ¹A4 (-A1) a4. These were probably printed later in the year and were either added by the original owners after their purchase of the text, or are present as later sophistications.

        1668 Jean Bolland Acta Sanctorum Saints Catholic Supernatural WEREWOLVES Aquinas

      Antverpiae, apud Jacobum Meursium. M. DC. LVIII. [1668]. - 1668 Jean Bolland Acta Sanctorum Saints Catholic Supernatural WEREWOLVES Aquinas Jean Bolland was a 17th-century Flemish Jesuit priest who is most remembered for his contributions to ‘Acts of the Saints’ or ‘Acta Sanctorum’. ‘Acta Sanctorum’ was an enormous folio set of biographical entries of the Catholic saints. Each critique is organized by each saint’s feast day. Bolland began his portion of ‘Acta’ after the death of Heribert Rosweyde, the organizer of the original project. This incredible set is the three-volumes of ‘Acta’ contributed by Bolland and overseen by Bollanists. It features the biographical accounts of important figures and church fathers such as Clement IX, Saint Domangarto, Saint Eusebius, Saint Senan, Thomas Aquinas, Theophilus of Adana, Saint Winwaloe, Peter of Ireland and many more! This book also discusses several occurrences of supernatural wonders and miracles including the bizarre life of Saint Torello of Poppi (d. 1282) who was known to have mystical powers over beasts. According to Summers, “On one occasion when a wolf had carried off the little son of a poor woman of Poppi, the blessed hermit by his word compelled the wolf to bring the child unharmed to his anchorage where he restored him to the weeping mother. The beast fled into the woods. The Bollandists write: ‘a wolf, commonly called Moninus, which is to say a feeder upon human flesh.’ It may very well be, however, that Moninus signifies a Werewolf.” (Summers) Until his death, Torello kept Poppi free and safe from warlocks and werewolves and other abominations!

        Paradise lost. A Poem in Ten Books. The Author J.M.

      London: Printed [by Samuel Simmons], and are to be sold by Peter Parker; and by Robert Boulter; and Matthias Walker, 1668 - Small quarto (173 x 126 mm). Sometime skilfully rebound to style in old sprinkled sheep, unlettered, double blind rules. Housed in a brown quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. Margins trimmed without text loss though touching top rule border on a few leaves, contents generally clean, title leaf with single tiny wormhole at top, bottom edge slightly shaved, and fore edge reinforced on verso, overall very good. Without the initial blank. First edition, with Amory's first issue title page. The bibliographer Hugh Amory argues for this being the earliest issue of the first edition of Paradise Lost (despite its title page, dated 1668), in which the anonymous author is identified only by his initials, "J.M." This is the same form by which the author is identified in the Stationers' Register, 20 August 1667. Amory speculates that Samuel Simmons, the printer and publisher of the first edition, decided against using Milton's full name on the title page "as the day of publication approached", substituting this version on which the author remained anonymous. Simmons's faltering confidence is understandable because Milton, a prominent supporter of regicide (specifically the execution of Charles I), was still widely regarded as a dangerous radical when Paradise Lost was first published. The contract for the publication of Paradise Lost between Milton and the stationer Samuel Simmons is the earliest agreement between an author and a publisher for which there exists documentary evidence. Sealed on 27 April 1667, it specifies a first edition of 1,300 copies. The first edition did not finally sell out until the spring of 1669, and six successive title pages were used to promote its sale in that time. These are traditionally described as six distinct issues, though there is no discernible relationship between the states of the titles and the settings of the preliminaries, and so "issue" is over-specific. Some copies have seven additional preliminary leaves, A4 (-A1) a4. These were probably printed later in the year and were either added by the original owners after their purchase of the text, or are present as later sophistications. Grolier English 33; Grolier W–P 599; Hayward 72; Pforzheimer 716; Wing M2138. For details on states of title page and preliminaries see The Library, ser. 4, XXII: 34–66. [Attributes: First Edition]

        The Present State of the Ottoman Empire. Containing the maxims of the Turkish politie, the most material points of the Mahometan religion [.].

      London, for John Starkey & Henry Browne, 1668. - Folio (198 x 310 mm). (8), 218 pp. With 19 text engravings and two plates (29 costume illustrations in all); wants the frontispiece. Later half calf on five raised bands, gilt, with giltstamped spine label. Marbled endpapers. Edges sprinkled in red. Second printed edition of Sir Paul Rycaut‘s famous Turkish chronicle (the first available), drawn from various authentic sources and from the author‘s own observations. "His most important work [.] presents an animated and, on the whole, faithful picture of Turkish manners" (DNB). "Provides an account of the society and political system of the Ottoman Empire with unprecedented thoroughness" (cf. Osterhammel, Die Entzauberung Asiens, 32). "An extremely important and influential work, which provides the fullest account of Ottoman affairs during the 17th century" (Blackmer). The 1666 first edition, which this replaces, was almost entirely destroyed by the Great Fire of London. The attractive engravings depict dignitaries and persons of various ranks in their costumes, also including the illustration of a turban. The loss of the frontispiece is to some degree extenuated by the fact that it merely showed a repeat of the engraving on fol. B2v (Sultan Mehmed IV on his throne). - Corners bumped. Some foxing, but still a good, prettily bound copy. Provenance: bookplate of Stefanos Karatheodoris, a Greek Phanariote diplomat in Ottoman service and father of the mathematician Constantin Carathéodory. Blackmer 1463. Wing R2413. Weber II, 326. Lipperheide Lb 19 (= 1408), note. Howgego R92. Cf. Atabey 1067 (third ed. only). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

In 1612 he married Elisabeth de Hondt, the daughter of Jodocus Hondius. He produced his first maps in 1616 of France and Italy. In 1623 Janssonius owned a bookstore in Frankfurt am Main, later also in Danzig, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Berlin, Königsberg, Geneva and Lyon. In the 1630s he formed a partnership with his brother in law Henricus Hondius, and together they published atlases as Mercator/Hondius/Janssonius.Under the leadership of Janssonius the Hondius Atlas was steadily enlarged. Renamed Atlas Novus, it had three volumes in 1638, one fully dedicated to Italy. 1646 a fourth volume came out with "English County Maps", a year after a similar issue by Willem Blaeu. Janssonius' maps are similar to those of Blaeu, and he is often accused of copying from his rival, but many of his maps predate those of Blaeu and/or covered different regions. By 1660, at which point the atlas bore the appropriate name "Atlas Major", there were 11 volumes, containing the work of about a hundred credited authors and engravers. It included a description of "most of the cities of the world" (Townatlas), of the waterworld (Atlas Maritimus in 33 maps), and of the Ancient World (60 maps). The eleventh volume was the Atlas of the Heavens by Andreas Cellarius. Editions were printed in Dutch, Latin, French, and a few times in German."

In an Account of some of the most Remarkable Late Improvements of Practical, Useful Learning: to encourage Philosophical Endeavours. Occasioned by a Conference of one of the Notional Way. London: printed for James Collins, 1668.

      - First edition of Glanvill's strong defence of the scientific work of Royal Society, which he intended as a supplement to Thomas Sprat's History of the Royal Society (1667). Opponents such as Henry Stubbe and Meric Causabon attacked Glanvill for it. Stubbe's reply is entitled 'The Plus Ultra Reduced to a Non Plus' (1670). But Leibniz thought well of Plus Ultra, recommending it in his correspondence during the years 1669-71 to five colleagues, among them Christian Thomasius. See Julie Davies, 'German receptions of the works of Joseph Glanvill: philosophical transmissions from England to Germany in the late 17th and early 18th century', Intellectual History Review, Vol. 26, 2016).

Das ist, Ein ausführlicher Bericht, Von dem wunderbarlichen, sehr alten, und weit-beschrienen Gespenste Dem Rübezahl; Welches sich, auf den Gebürgen in Schlesien und Böhmen, den Wanders-Leuten zum öfteren, in possirlicher und manigfaltiger Gestalt, und mit seltzamen Verrichtungen, erzeiget . (usw.) 3 Teile in 1 Band. 8 Bl., 292 S.; Titel, 232 S., 3 w. Bl.; 12 Bl., 264 S., 12 Bl. Register. Mit fragmentarisch erhaltenem Frontispiz. 12°. Pergamentbd d. Z. mit handschriftl. Rückentitel.

      Arnstadt (d. i. Rudolstadt), Caspar Freyschmid für Joh. Barthel Oehlers in Leipzig, 1668, 1665 und 1665. - Die erste umfassende literarische Gestaltung des Rübezahl-Stoffes. "Es handelt sich hier um das erste große Rübezahlbuch, auf dem alle späteren Fassungen – auch die anderer Herausgeber – beruhen" (Dünnhaupt). Praetorius (1630-1680) war ein ungemein fruchtbarer Polyhistor, dessen von umfassender Belesenheit zeugenden Veröffentlichungen bei den Zeitgenossen sehr beliebt waren und schon seit Grimmelshausen einer ganzen Generation deutscher Dichter unerschöpfliches Material lieferten. Auch Goethe schöpfte aus diesen Quellen, vor allem für seinen 'Faust'. Heute kennt man Praetorius hauptsächlich durch die Entdeckung, Aufzeichnung und Herausgabe der Rübezahl-Sagen. Insgesamt verzeichnet Praetorius 241 Geschichten über den Berggeist aus dem Riesengebirge. Bis heute ist kein umfassenderes Werk zu diesem Thema erschienen. Es machte Rübezahl zu einer weit über Schlesiens Grenzen hinaus bekannten Gestalt. Als Quellen gibt Praetorius einerseits gedruckte Bücher an, andererseits von Siedlern des Gebirges und Reisenden stammende mündliche wie schriftliche Berichte. Er beruft sich auch auf Informationen von Heilpflanzenhändlern, die Kräuter im Riesengebirge sammelten und dann Apothekern zur Weiterverarbeitung brachten. Diese 'Wurzelmänner' betrachteten Rübezahl als Schutzpatron und behaupteten, dass er ihre Pflanzen mit besonderer Heilkraft versehen habe. Trotz ihrer Beliebtheit im 17. und 18. Jahrhundert sind alle Auflagen dieser Rübezahl-Sammlung heute sehr selten. Teil 1: 2. Auflage. Die Erstausgabe von 1662 war in 2 Fassungen erschienen (daher hier wohl auf dem Titel: "Die dritte Edition"), einer längeren und einer meist um lateinische Passagen gekürzten Fassung. Hier handelt es sich nach Dünnhaupt um die Titelauflage des 2. Drucks der Erstausgabe. Teil 2: 2. Auflage. Teil 3: Erstausgabe. Wie von Dünnhaupt angegeben ist das Gesamtregister über alle drei Teile an den Schluss von Teil 1 gebunden. – Jeder Teil mit separatem Titelblatt. Etwas gebräunt, das doppelblattgr. Frontispiz mit Abriss im ausklappbaren Teil. – VD17 7:719181E (Teil 1). Teile 2 und 3 so nicht im VD 17 (vgl. VD17 14:016947Q: Teil 2: 1662 und Teil 3: 1673); Dünnhaupt 10.I.3, II.2, III.1; Goed. III 238, 15; Hayn, Praetorius, 84 und 85; Graesse, Bibl. mag. 22; Faber du Faur 760. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
