         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!

         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]

         Natolia, quae olim Asia minor.

      Artist: Janssonius Johann ca ; issued in: Amsterdam; date: ca1668 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: colored; - condition: Perfect condition; - size (in cm): 38 x 50; - description: Map depicts the Asian part of turkey with the Bosporus and the island Cyprus, with very decorativ cartouches.; - vita of the artist: "Johannes Janssonius (Jansson),( 1588- 1664) Amsterdam was born in Arnhem, the son of Jan Janszoon the Elder,a publisher and bookseller. 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).

      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.

         La vraye histoire comique de Francion Composée par Niolas de Moulinet, sieur du Parc, Gentilhome Lorrain. Soigneusement revue & corrigée par Nathanaël Duëz, maistre de langues.

      Leyde & Rotterdam, chez les Hackes, 1668, 2 tomes in 16, de 8ff. dont le fx-titre gravé & 368pp. & un fx-titre gravé & 454pp., ill. de 11 gravures non signées à pleine page (chacune représentant deux scènes, une en haut de page et une en bas de page), rel. en un fort vol. pl. vélin rigide époque, qq. rousseurs sinon très bon exemplaire. La plus belle édition de ce célèbre roman picaresque, elle fait partie de la collection des Elzeviers. "L"édition la plus jolie et la plus recherchée" selon Brunet. Ce roman sur les moeurs de Paris sous Louis XIII est toujours attribué à Charles Sorel, même si celui-ci l'a en partie désavoué. Brunet pense que le roman n'avait à l'origine que sept parties, et que devant son succès, Sorel l'aurait prolongé de 5 nouvelles parties en 1633. L'oeuvre constitue l'une des premières et des plus importantes "histoire comique" de la littérature française, et restera l'un des chefs-d'?uvre du genre. Il connut un très grand succès dès sa parution. ¶ Brunet III, 1931 - Willems Elzeviers n°1795 "Edition la plus recherchée de ce roman fameux.... elle est due aux Hackius, et c'est une de leurs plus jolies productions..." - Gay Amour, femmes III. 1379 "c'est le premier en date de nos romans de moeurs... il reproduit des tableaux vivants, qui attestent à la fois de l'intelligence et de la finesse de l'auteur..."

      Jouxte la Copie d'Amsterdam. A Paris, chez Jean Ribou, Paris 1668 - 12mo (140 x 85 mm). (32), 178 pp. With a portrait of Nostradamus and frontispiece engraving of the 1666 Fire of London, and of the execution of Charles I. Bound in contemporary, no doubt original, drab boards, spine lettered in manuscript, signs of wear (not objectionably so) and gentle use, with some underlining in the text. Rare in the original cartonnage binding, completely unsophisticated. Equally remarkable is the engraved frontispiece which is reproduced by Ian Wilson in his important biography: "Nostradamus: The Man Behind the Prophesies" (Macmillan, 2007, p. 259). Wilson describes the engraving thusly: "The images of Charles I’s execution in 1649 and the Great Fire of London in 1666 shows that contemporaries accredited Nostradamus with having predicted both these events." This edition contains, in addition to the XII "Centuries," the 141 "Presages" derived from those made by Nostradamus in 1555 et seq., as well as the "Other Predictions of Mr. Nostradamus for the current years in this century." This "Nouvelle edition" appeared the same year, and in the same format, as the Amsterdam edition referenced on the title-page (published by Jean Jansson). Dorbon, Bibliotheca Esoterica 349.

La prima premessa di ricerca filosofica, questa è la ragione, e il suo metodo di deduzione. Il progetto cartesiano è un progetto di conoscenza universale, non solo filosofica. Principia seguire il Discorso sul metodo (1636) e Meditazioni (1641). Lo scopo del lavoro è prodigiosa, Cartesio vuole fornire una nuova metafisica sulla base del cogito, che crea una nuova classificazione di conoscenze e una nuova riflessione morale, che opera con la rivoluzione, ha dato alla luce l'Illuminismo . - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Nouvelle édition de la traduction de l'Abbé Picot, ornée d'une planche dépliante.

Quelques travaux de vers en marge basse intérieure, sans atteinte au texte et quelques pâles mouillures. Dernière garde abîmée en marges. C'est en 1644 que Descartes écrivit en latin les Principia philosophiae, avec le soucis de clarifier et de donner un base saine et rigoureuse à la philosophie, d'en ériger les fondements inébranlables. Le premier postulat de la recherche philosophique, c'est la raison, et sa méthode : la déduction. Le projet cartésien est un projet de science universelle, et non pas seulement philosophique. Les Principia font suite au Discours de la méthode (1636) et aux Méditations métaphysiques (1641). L'ambition de l'ouvrage est prodigieuse, Descartes veut fournir une nouvelle métaphysique reposant sur le cogito, qui engendre une nouvelle classification des connaissances et une morale neuve, réflexion, qui par la révolution qu'elle opère, donnera naissance au siècle des Lumières.

Ms. paper spine label. Fine. SECOND LATIN EDITION, corrected [first Latin issue was in 1662]. Boyle's best-known work. In it, Boyle denounced the chemistry of his day, opposed the iatrochemists' doctrine of the three principles (salt, sulphur, and mercury), and the four elements of the Aristotelians. Boyle put forth his own theory of corpuscles, thereby defining the elements as separate entities. "The Sceptical chymist is concerned with the relations between chemical substances.... In this sense the book must be considered as one of the most significant milestones on the way to the chemical revolution of Lavoisier." Printing and the mind of man.

         Aesop. The Fables of Aesop Paraphras'd in Verse: Adorn'd with Sculpture, and Illustrated with Annotations. The Second Edition. By John Ogilby, Esq; Master of His Majesties Revells in the Kingdom of Ireland.

      Printed by Thomas Roycroft, for the Author, 1668., London: - 2 volumes. Tall 4to. [iv], 211, [1]; [iv], 231, [1] pp. Titles printed in red & black. With the rare portrait of Ogilby â€" a total of 150 engraved plates [by Wenceslaus Hollar, Barlow and Stoop], historiated initials, head and tail pieces; pl. facing p. 59 with marginal tear; vol. II, pp. 111-2 + facing plate with edges tears (small piece missing, no loss of plate or text), pls. facing p. 138 + 157 with marginal tears. Vol. I: Original blind and gilt-tooled calf (mismatched bindings); rebacked in similar calf, gilt-stamped leather spine label, later endleaves. Vol. II: Original full suede leather; rebacked to match, leather spine label, later endleaves, edge worn. Bookplate of Frances Thomas de Grey Carl Cowper, Panshanger, (1834â€"1905), the seventh Earl Cowper. Second edition (first issued in 1651). This is one of the most important illustrated books issued in seventeenth-century England, including some of the best work of Wenceslaus Hollar. “In 1665, Ogilby produced a folio edition of this work; the larger format required larger plates, and Ogilby employed Wenceslaus Hollar to “transmute Cleyn’s leaden images into golden ones” (Hodnett, Barlow 143). Hollar re-did fifty-seven of eighty plates, and the rest were copied from Clein by Dirk Stoop. In 1668, Ogilby followed up on the success of this volume with AEsopics: or, A second collection of fables, paraphas’d in verse, adorn’d with sculpture, which included fifty new fables and thirty-eight new illustrations, half by Hollar, and most of the other half by Barlow. The first volume was published again in 1668, and both volumes were re-issued in 1673 and 1675.” â€"Acheson “The political edge of the fables is particularly pronounced in the late seventeenth-century Aesops, which were published within a period of political conflict for an audience with an appetite for political analysis, allegory, and opinion. Both of the men responsible for the late seventeenth-century Aesops, John Ogilby and Francis Barlow, were involved with contemporary politics, even if their commitments were as much shaped by professional and commercial opportunities as they were by principle or ideology: Ogilby was a royalist polemicist, and Barlow published a set of prints supporting the Whig cause during the Popish Plot and its aftermath. While it is probably true, as is often said, that the fables have not received critical attention equal to their level of popularity and ideological importance in early modern culture, the quality and thoroughness of existing studies offer an excellent grounding in the cultural importance and impact of the verbal texts of Aesop’s fables in early modern England. The collections of fables published by Ogilby (first in 1651) and Barlow (first in 1666) were very different kinds of books than the many versions printed before them, and their illustrations were an important part of their appeal and interest. These were expensive folios directed at adult audiences, generously illustrated with high-quality etchings designed by distinguished artists and executed by some of the best engravers working in England at the time.” â€" Katherine Acheson, “The Picture of Nature: Seventeenth-Century English Aesop’s Fables,” The Journal for Early Modern Cultural Studies, Vol. 9, No. 2 (Fall/Winter 2009). John Ogilby (also Ogelby, Oglivie) (1600â€"1676) was a Scottish translator, impresario and cartographer, best known for publishing the first British road atlas, he also translated works and was noted for publishing his work in handsome illustrated editions. His first edition of Aesop was published in 1651, featuring illustrations by Francis Clein [Cleyn]. In 1665 he published a second, revised edition of The Fables of Aesop, this time illustrated by Wenceslaus Hollar's renowned prints, just one year in front of the great London fire. See: Katharine S.

Short tear at lower edge of title page, touching rule. A few printed side-notes shaved. Overall good condition. 36 pp. *** FIRST EDITION. Vieira (1608-1697) is described by Boxer as "certainly the most remarkable man in the seventeenth-century Luso-Brazilian world" (A Great Luso-Brazilian Figure: Padre António Vieira, S.J., p. 4). Born in Lisbon, he moved to Bahia as a child and there became a Jesuit novice in 1623. By 1635, when he was ordained, he was already famous as a preacher, and when the Dutch withdrew from Brazil it was he who was chosen to preach the victory sermon. Vieira, a trusted advisor of D. João IV, was sent by him on diplomatic missions to France, Holland and Rome. Beginning in 1652 he spent nine years as a missionary in Maranhão, where he vehemently defended the rights of the Indians against the colonists who wanted to enslave them. As a result, the colonists managed to have him and all the other Jesuits in Pará and Maranhão deported in 1661. Back in Lisbon, his campaign for toleration of the New Christians (crypto-Jews) and his Sebastianist beliefs led to his trial by the Inquisition. He was found guilty, but the ascension of the future D. Pedro II as regent in 1668 led to his release. Vieira?s status as a diplomat and missionary would guarantee his letters a place in Portuguese history, but his style and content are also exceptional: his letters and state-papers are invaluable sources for the period, and his sermons are as readable today as they were in the seventeenth century. Pessoa dubbed him "O Imperador da lingua portuguesa" (quoted in Boxer, ibid., p. 3).*** Backer and Sommervogel, VIII, col. 655. Leite, História da Companhia de Jesus no Brasil, IX, 216.
