        De Chirurgia Infusoria, .

      - Lipsiae, Aoud Nicolaum Scipionem, 1668, 4°, 64 pp., feiner Halbpergamenteind im Stil d.Zt.; feines Eexemplar. Selten - Erste Dissertation zur Infusion in Deutschland - Hochbedeutende medizinisch-pharmazeutische "Dissertationem Medicam De Chirurgia Infusoria, Iussu & Autoritate Gratiosae Facultatis Medicae in alma Lipsiensi Pro Loco In eadem obtinendo, P.P. Michael Etmuller, Phil. & Med. Doct. Respondente Georgio Friderico Stirio, Vratislaviensi Silesio, Philiatro, Ad diem 30. Octobr. Anno M.DC.LXIIX. H.L.Q.S.". - - "Elsholtz war nicht der einzige und wahrscheinlich nicht einmal der erste, der solche Versuche unternahm. Michael Ettmüller berichtet in seinem Buch "De chirurgia infusoria", daß der Jäger eines Edelmannes aus der Lausitz im .Jahre 1642 Hunden Alkohol in die Venen injiziert habe und sie damit betrunken macht«. Ettmüller hat außerdem bereits klar erkannt, daß diese intravenöse Injektion therapeutisch dann in Betracht kommt, wenn eine Veränderung der Medikamente im Verdauungskanal ausgeschaltet werden soll oder wenn eine Aufnahme der Arzneistoffe von der Speiseröhre aus nicht möglich ist, also bei Schluck Unfähigkeit aller Art oder bei Resorptionsstörungen. Auch in England wurden 1657 auf die Anregung von Christopher Wren (1632-1723), der nicht einmal Arzt, sondern Baumeister, Astronom und Chemiker war, und bald danach von R. Lowe ähnliche Versuche zwecks Durchführung von Gefäßinjektionen und Infusionen angestellt. Der Chemiker Robert Boyle (1627-1601), der diese Versuche von Wren mit Opiumlösungen an Hunden miterlebte, berichtet darüber; "Kaum hatten wir den Hund losgebunden, als schon die Opiumtinktur ihre narkotische Wirkung auszuüben begann, und sowie er auf den Füßen stand, begann er mit dem Kopf zu wackeln, zu schütteln und zu taumeln und war dann betäubt, daß man für sein Leben fürchten mußte. Die Kenntnis dieser Versuche scheint zunächst nicht allzu verbreitet gewesen zu sein. Jedenfalls nimmt J. D. Major (1634-1693) im Jahre 1667 in seiner "Chirurgia infusoria" und im "Ortus et progressus clysmaticae novae" das Verdienst für sich allein in Anspruch, dieses Verfahren erdacht zu haben." Hans Haas, Spiegel der Arznei: Ursprung, Geschichte und Idee der Heilmittelkunde (1956), p.128 - - Michael Ettmüller (1644-1683) "habilitirte sich 1676 als Privatdocent an der medicinischen Facultät, wurde 1681 zum Professor der Botanik, bald darauf zum a. o. Professor der Chirurgie ernannt. Er vereinigte mit einer umfassenden Gelehrsamkeit eine grosse praktische Befähigung und wurde ein eifriger Vertreter der durch Sylvius de la Boe begründeten Chemiatrie, deren Grundsätze er mit großer Gewandtheit auf Physiologie und Pathologie anzuwenden verstand, so dass sein Ruf als Lehrer eine grosse Zahl von Studirenden nach Leipzig zog. Als besonders bemerkenswerth sind hervorzuheben die 'Dissertatio de chirurgia infusoria' (Lipsiae 1668), in welcher er das Ergebniss seiner Versuche mit Infusion verschiedener Arzneimittel in die Venen von Thieren mittheilt" Hirsch/H.

Titles printed in red and black, with 2 engraved frontispiece portraits and a total of 149 engraved plates by Hollar, Stoop, Barlow and others (first work with 81 plates; second work with and 68 plates). 2 vols. Folio. Aesop, translated by John Ogilby (1600-1676), geographer and publisher and Master of His Majesties Revells in the Kingdom of Ireland (as the title page notes. "In 1649 Ogilby published his first translation, of Virgil. … This was followed in 1651 by Aesop's Fables and further translations of Virgil in 1654 and 1658. His translations, particularly the 1654 folio, were magnificent productions: his style was direct and he paid great attention to paper quality, clear type, and the illustrations. Later translations-of Homer's Iliad (1660) and Odyssey (1665), of Aesop's Fables and Aesopics (in 1665 and 1668, respectively), and of Virgil in 1666-are splendid examples of seventeenth-century printing and of the patronage networks through which men like Ogilby promoted both themselves and polite learning" (ODNB).

        Vollkommene Comische Historie des Francions. 8 Bl., 703 S. Mit Kupfertitel und 12 ganzseit. Textkupfern. Pergamentbd d. Z. mit handschriftl. Rückentitel.

      Leiden, Die Hackes, 1668. - Zweite deutsche Ausgabe, erste illustrierte, des berühmten und berüchtigten Abenteuerromans des 17. Jahrhunderts, mit dem Sorel sehr erfolgreich die literarische Bühne betrat. Das französische Original war 1623 in der Zeit relativer Meinungsfreiheit erschienen, die den französischen Religionskriegen folgte, und "steht unter dem Einfluß des courant libertin. Er stellte sich als Rahmenerzählung um eine fiktive Autobiographie dar, deren lustiger und verwegener Held gar manches moralische, soziale und religiöse Vorurteil über den Haufen warf." Das satirische Panorama "bildet ein wichtiges Dokument über das Alltagsleben zur Zeit Ludwigs XIII. . Besonders in der Traumerzählung des dritten Buches – einer der frühesten realistischen Traumdarstellungen – bricht das erotische Element mit provozierender Kühnheit durch" (KNLL). Sorel hat mit seinem besten Roman in einer reichen, volkstümlichen und unpreziösen Sprache die erste bedeutende 'Histoire comique' der französischen Literatur geschaffen, ein wichtiges Glied in jener Entwicklung, die zum 'Simplizissimus' und schließlich 'Wilhelm Meister' führen sollte. – Eine Ecke mit restauriertem Einriss, 2 Blatt mit Kaffe(?)-Fleckchen, sonst schönes, frisches Exemplar. Sehr selten, nur in drei deutschen Bibliotheken nachgewiesen. – VD17 23:287319K; HaynG. III 281. Vgl. Faber du Faur 917.

        La religion du médecin, c'est à dire : description nécessaire par Thomas Brown [sic], [.] touchant son opinion accordante avec le pur service divin d'Angleterre

      1668 - (12), 360, (2)pp., frontispice s.l, s.n, 1668, in-12, (12), 360, (2)pp, frontispice, pleine basane XVIIIe, dos à 4 nerfs, pièce de titre en maroquin havane, tranches rouges (importantes restaurations du dos), Première édition française de cet ouvrage qui parut, en 1642, en anglais, et qui fut dès 1644 traduit en latin. L'édition latine fut souvent réimprimée, accompagnée d'annotations et commentaires explicatifs. Le traducteur français, Nicolas Le Febvre, suit le texte latin. La formulation générale du titre, "la religion du médecin", ne témoigne pas du contenu du livre. Il s'agit d'une œuvre toute personnelle, où, d'une part, Browne se défend contres les accusations pour athéisme et développe son approche singulière du fait religieux ; et où, d'autre part, il égrène ses avis sur de nombreux sujets du temps. Ainsi, en 55 courts chapitres, dans un style alliant préceptes et paradoxes, moral et ironie, Browne étudie, tout en s'y impliquant et en affirmant son opinion, les fondements de la religion et de la morale, la magie, les esprits, les démons, les apparitions, les songes, la pierre philosophale, les pauvres, le mariage, la musique, etc. L’ouvrage, dans sa version latine, fut mis à l’index des livres interdits par décret du 18 mars 1645. Ex-libris manuscrit ancien : "Moisson". Certains titres courants rognés, sinon bel exemplaire [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Rostock, Joachim Wildium, 1668. 8vo. 135 pp. Slight browning on the title and some minor spotting. 20th-century half vellum, spine with red and brown label, marbled boards, red edges (Gust. Hedberg). From the library of Fredrik Vult von Steyerns, with his gilt monogram on front board. VD17 1:009329U. Warmholtz 3946 note. First latin edition of Gualdo Priorato's biography of Albrecht Wallenstein, duke of Friedland (1583-1634). The Italian original was published in 1643 and the latin translation is made by Josua Arnd (1626-87). Gualdo Priorato's biography is still one of the main near contemporary sources to the life and fate of Wallenstein, the famous "Generalissimo" from the Thirty Years War, who was murdered in Eger in 1634. Galeazzo Conte Gualdo Priorato (1606-78) was an Italian soldier and historian. He took part of almost the whole of the Thirty Years War, and was in the service of Moritz of Nassau and of Wallenstein, but also on the protestant side. After the war he wrote several historical works about the war

        RELATIONE DELLA SIGNORIA DI LUCA, E SUO DOMINIO.

      Appresso Pietro De La Place, In Colonia 1668 - Prima edizione. Cm.14,5x9,2. Pg.52. Legatura in piena pergamena rigida. Minima tarlatura che attraversa il volumetto senza minimamente ledere il testo. Rarissima prima edizione, ristampata nel 1675 di un'opera del Conte Galeazzo Gualdo Priorato (Vicenza, 1606-1678). Questi giunse a Lucca nella seconda metà del XVII secolo, invitatovi dalla Repubblica per scrivere sulla città e tacitare le dicerie che la volevano ricettacolo di eretici, mettendone a rischio l'autonomia. Mercenario nelle Fiandre e in Francia nella campagna contro gli Ugonotti, trasse per scritto le sue esperienze e si dedicò a scrivere cose storiche per il miglior offerente. A Lucca ricevette nel 1666 venticinque doppie, e infatti la sua "Relatione", di notevole interesse documentario, risultò alquanto gradita al governo cittadino. "Pieno di gratitudine per la generosità lucchese, il Priorato apriva la descrizione della città parlando delle sue origini e delle poderose fortificazioni che la cingevano. Ne illustrava quindi la struttura di governo, insistendo sulla "splendidezza" di quei cittadini e sulla loro grande ospitalità. Anche il declino della mercatura veniva da lui interpretato in modo positivo, cioè come libera scelta dell'aristocrazia che, ormai stanca di trafficare, aveva preferito ritirarsi dagli affari per meglio godere le proprie rendite e le deliziose ville sparse nella campagna circostante. L'Opera si concludeva con una descrizione delle chiese, dei miracoli e dei corpi dei santi raccolti nella città non senza, prima, un garbato accenno alle donne lucchesi "belle quanto ornate di una compita modestia" (Sodini, "In quello strano e fondo verno", 37). Il testo può essere considerato, a pieno titolo, la prima "guida" in assoluto della città di Lucca. > Parenti, Dizionario dei luoghi di stampa falsi, inventati o supposti, 52/53, "Furono pubblicati quattordici "Relationi" di Galeazzo Gualdo Priorato, undici delle quali con la sottoscrizione editoriale, evidentemente falsa, di Colonia . Questo nome falso fu usato da F.Foppens a Bruxelles per la traduzione francese de "Il trattato di pace fra le due corone nell'anno 1659", dello stesso Gualdo Priorato . Non è azzardato pensare che anche le Relazioni siano state stampate a Bruxelles, dato che le caratteristiche tipografiche confermerebbero l'ipotesi". Moreni, I, 466. Lozzi, 2394. 100 gr.

      BMC NH, p. 185; ESTC T130372; Henrey 463; for Boerhaave: DSB II, pp. 224-228. Third enlarged and corrected edition of Boerhaave's description of the plants in Leiden University's botanical garden. It gives an account of the various species, including the origins of the plants, their names, characteristics and possible medicinal properties. It includes trees, herbs, flowers, mushrooms and marine plants. As head of the botanical garden, Boerhaave (1668-1738) published his first catalogue of plants, Index plantarum, in 1710, and added more than two thousand species by the second edition in 1720, reflecting Boerhaave's extensive additions to the garden. Although the present work carries Boerhaave's name, it is believed to have been prepared by one of his students with the aid of lecture notes. The royal cypher monogram on the binding shows the crowned L and mirrored L of Louis XV (1710-1774). With English owner's inscriptions on the title-page. Very slightly browned and with a small stain at the foot of pages 1-22, not approaching the text. Otherwise a very good copy. Binding somewhat worn and restored at the extremities..

        CRETE – HERAKLION (CANDIA), GREECE: DISSEGNO DI CANDIA ATTACCATA DAL TURCO SOTTO IL COMANDO DEL PRIMO VISIR, ET DIFFESA DALL'ECC.MO SIG. MARCHESE VILLA, DAL PRINCIPIO DEL ATTACCO LI 24, MAGGIO, 1667, SINO LI 21. APRILE 1668.

      - This fascinating and very rare broadside depicts the Great Siege of Candia (Heraklion, Crete) as it appeared in 1667-8, the penultimate year of what was the longest siege in European history. The city is shown from a southern-oriented perspective, with the walled city in the centre, and with the terraced hills above and the harbour below. Only major buildings are depicted within the city proper, while numerous Ottoman positions occupy the hills, while various vessels skirmish in the harbour. A letterpress ‘Tavola,’ or key, below identifies 88 sites of interest. Candia (Heraklion) was the capital of Crete and had been ruled by Venice since 1204. During the 17th Century, Ottoman power was on the rise in the Eastern Mediterranean, at the expense of the Venetian Republic. In 1648, a massive force of 60,000 Ottoman troops besieged Candia. Over the coming years the Ottomans expended great effort to capture the city, while the Venetians continued to but up a valiant resistance, although they failed to ward off the Turkish threat. Events began to turn against the defenders in 1666, when a Venetian engineer, Colonel Andrea Barozzi, defected to the Ottoman side, bringing with him invaluable military plans. The present view depicts the chapter of the siege that lasted from May 1667 to April 1668, when the Venetian cause was becoming increasingly desperate. In 1669, the moral of the Venetian garrison took a severe blow when a combined Franco-Venetian expedition failed to lift the siege, and during which the French flagship was spectacularly destroyed by an accidental explosion. In August 1669, The Venetian commander Francesco Morosini (who later became the Doge of Venice, 1668-94), surrendered Candia under honourable terms. The Great Siege of Candia holds the record (21 years long) for being the longest continual siege in European history. Giovanni Maria Belgrano (fl. 1660-94) was a Piemontese artist, based in Turin, who was best known for engraving Giovanni Tommaso Borgonio’s spectacular wall map of Piemonte & Savoy, Carta generale de stati di sua altezza reale (1680). While the production details of the present map of Heraklion remain a mystery, it was likely published in Turin (as opposed to Venice, as may commonly be assumed), as Belgrano was not known to have worked anywhere else. The present broadside is very rare. We have been able to locate only a single institutional example (Princeton University Library) and only one sales record for the map from the last generation.

        DESCRIPTION EXACTE DE TOUT CE QUI S'EST PASSÉ DANS LES GUERRES ENTRE LE ROY D'ANGLETERRE, LE ROY DE FRANCE, LES ESTATS DES PROVINCES UNIES DU PAYS-BAS, & L'EVESQUE DE MUNSTER

      Amsterdam, 1668. Numerous in-text engravings. Small quarto. Later half vellum and marbled boards. Scattered dampstaining, else very good. The most complete and detailed contemporary account of the Anglo-Dutch war from 1664 to 1667, when the Treaty of Breda brought it to an end. This work was first published in Dutch in 1667, although this first French edition of the following year probably made the information much more generally available. It is of particular American interest for the description of the loss of New Netherland, giving an account of the capture of New York and the surrender of Netherland, of which this and the preceding Dutch version are the first published accounts. It also prints a list of vessels and goods captured by the British in America, and accounts of De Ruyter's voyage to the West Indies, affairs in Barbados, the war in Europe, and the capture of Surinam by the Dutch.

        Epistolas familiares de Don Antonio de Guevara, Obispo de MondoÒedo, Predicador, y Chronista, y del Consejo del Emperador, y Rey nuestro seÒor. Primera y segunda parte Ö.

      Madrid, por Matheo de Espinosa y Arteaga [for Juan de Calatayud y Montenegro], 1668 [first part] and 1666 [divisional title of second part]. - Large woodcut printer's device on title page and divisional title. Large engraved coat-of-arms of the dedicatee, Don Martin de Saavedra Ladron de Guevara, lord of the houses of Saavedra, Narvaez, and Guevara, and Conde de Tahalu, etc., signed by Marcus Orozco as engraver and designer, on recto of fourth leaf. Large woodcut tailpiece of basket with fruits and flowers on p. 464 at end of first part. Woodcut initials. Text in two columns. (6, 10 ll.), 705 [i.e., 703] pp. Page 501 misnumbered 481; 572-92 misnumbered 578-98; 597-604 misnumbered 603-610; 671 misnumbered 666; 700-1 misnumbered 702-3; p. 703 misnumbered 705. 4?, late eighteenth- or early nineteenth-century tree sheep ("pasta EspaÒola"; some wear, especially to corners, joints; rubbing), flat spine gilt with burgundy leather lettering piece, gilt letter, marbled pastedown endleaves (free endleaves gone).

On the whole in less than good but still solid condition. Old blue oval stamp "De Don Julian // Simon Ardisana [?]" at inner blank margin of title page. ---- Some critics consider this the author's best work, apparently first published in Valladolid, 1539, and frequently reprinted. A series of essays usually in epistolary form, with title and style taken from Cicero, it was translated into Italian, French, English, Dutch and German. There are multiple sixteenth- and seventeenth-century editions in these languages. Among the subjects are the ancient art of writing and its characteristics, qualifications of a warrior, instructions to knights, benefits and disadvantages of medical care, privileges of old age, the proper attitude of husbands and wives towards one another, disputes with the Jews of Naples on the mystery of the Trinity, Plutarch's epistle to Trajan, whores, and much more. The letters express the author's views on society, morality, theology, politics, love and fidelity, history and Scripture.The final 10 preliminary leaves, ?-??4, ???2, contain a "Resumen de la genealogia de las ilustres Casas de Saavedra, y Guevara." Of the 31 copies mentioned in the online Spanish CCPBE, only one at Toledo (Biblioteca de Castilla-La Mancha / Biblioteca P?blica del Estado) appears to have these leaves. REBIUN refers to a copy in the Biblioteca de Catalunya which contains them. Palau includes them in his collation, but they are not mentioned in any other source we have consulted.The printer's device is the same as that used by Juan de la Cuesta, and which had belonged to P. Madrigal. A didactic, ascetic, and learned writer of distinguished ancestry brought up at the court of Ferdinand and Isabella, Fray Antonio de Guevara (1480?ñ1545) exercised considerable influence on Spanish prose of the sixteenth century, and is acknowledged as one of the leading prose stylists before Cervantes. He entered the Franciscan Order in 1504, returned as Court Preacher in 1521, and was appointed Royal Chronicler to Charles V in 1626. He accompanied the king on trips to Italy and other parts of Europe, as well as to Tunis in 1535. Much influenced by Cicero's rhetoric and biblical imagery, Guevara attained a European reputation, especially in France and Italy, for his @Libro ureo de Marco Aurelio. Printed anonymously and without permission in Seville in 1528, it received at least 25 editions within the next 100 years, and was translated into French, Italian, English and Latin. It was augmented as @Libro llamado relox de prÌncipes, appearing in Valladolid, 1529. This authorized version had 16 editions. ---- Palau 110229. SimÛn DÌaz, XI, 367, no. 3055. Vindel, @Marcas 513.

Il Cardinalismo segue di un anno 'Il Nipotismo' e con il meno presentabile 'Puttanismo' forma una trilogia. In quest'opera, di cui esiste anche una traduzione inglese del 1670, si tratta nella prima parte dell'essere della chiasa, delle differenze tra le religioni e tra li principi e clero. Dell'autorita' del Pontefice, come la si intende a roma e come la devono intendere i Sovrani. Nella secondasi discorre del poco conto che tengono li cardinali di difendere la chiesa dalla rapacita' del nepotismo. Nella terza si parla di tutti i trattati maneggi, dispute e discorsie avvenute tra cardinali popolo e imperatori nell'elezioni di tutti i Papi.

        An essay towards a real character, and a philosophical language.

      printed for Sa: Gellibrand, and for John Martin printer to the Royal Society, London 1668 - First edition, large paper copy, folio, pp. [20], 454, [2] blank, [156]; engraved vignette title bearing the arms of the Royal Society, 4 engraved plates (1 folding), 2 very large folding tables; separate title and pagination for An Alphabetical Dictionary wherein all English words according to their various significations are . explained, London, 1668; occasional marginal flaws, small rust hole to 2G2 (no loss), 2R1 and 2R4 printed on a smaller sheet, neat restoration to paper flaw on the final leaf; full contemporary mottled calf with a nice central panel in gilt, neatly rebacked, gilt-paneled spine in 7 compartments, morocco label in 1, extremities a bit rubbed and worn, some modest scratching to the covers, but all in all a very good and compelling copy, with a handful of interesting early eighteenth-century annotations which show a particular interest in Wilkins' analysis of the alphabet with which the reader takes issue (Chapter XIII). Wilkins (1614-1672), bishop of Chester, was proficient in both mathematics and astronomy, and was an early proponent of, and active in the foundation of certain weekly meetings of learned men of his time, which subsequently became the Royal Society, of which he was the first secretary. In 1648, he was made warden of Wadham College, Oxford, where he became intimate with Boyle, Wren and Evelyn. In 1656 he married Cromwell's sister. Wilkins' interest in universal language goes back to 1641 when he published the anonymous Mercury, or the secret and swift messenger, "the first rudimentary attempt at constructing a framework for a universal language and alphabet, though it had obvious connections with the development in England of both short-hand and cypher" (see Alston VIII, 277). "John Wilkins' Essay., more than any other work of its period, reflects the staggering range of 17th-century British intellectual inquiry and the unprecedented rigor of its scientific method . [He] was a principal organizer, if not the prime catalyst of the British scientific revolution" (Subbiondo, John Wilkins and 17- Century British Linguistics, p. xiii).His Essay is his most important work, in which he was assisted by John Ray, Francis Willoughby, and others. It is said that this work inspired Ray to develop his own botanical classification, and lead him later to publish his work on proverbs. Wilkins' Essay "is the largest and most complete work in a long tradition of speculation and effort to create an artificial language that would, in a contemporary phrase, "repair the ruins of Babel." In his own time Wilkins' stature and influence were very considerable . his influence was divided between such men as Hooke, Boyle, and Ray on the one hand, Tilloston, Stillingfleet, and Patrick on the other. In this sense he shaped the temper of England in the latter half of the seventeenth century and left a significant impression on the eighteenth." See DSB; Wing W- 2196; Alston VII, 290 (noting that all copies do not contain the plates as are present here); Lowndes, p. 2922: "A masterpiece of invention . The index, which is also in its kind a masterpiece, is by Dr. Wm. Lloyd." [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Hij schreef verschillende anti-katholieke boeken en ging over naar de protestantse godsdienst. Pietro Aretino (Arezzo 1492 - Venetie 1556) wordt wel de eerste kunstcriticus genoemd. Hij verkeerde in de kringen rond paus Leo X, maar moest in 1524 Rome ontvluchten omdat hij sonnetten had geschreven bij pornografische gravures van Marcantonio Raimondi. Hij vestigde zich daarna in Venetie en schreef over kunst en kunstenaars en maakte gedichten en toneelstukken, veelal expliciet op seksualiteit gericht. In zijn Ragionamenti (1534-1536) laat hij prostitiue's uit Rome het morele verval van bekende inwoners van die stad aan elkaar verhalen. Als uitgever wordt Pieter Koelaart genoemd, maar in 1708 werd deze titel opgenomen in een fondslijst van Timotheus ten Hoorn en Koelaart blijkt dus een pseudoniem van de uitgever Ten Hoorn, die bekend staat om zijn libertijnse uitgaven."

        Nor Ktakaran Srboy Awetarani Tearn Meroy Yisui K'ristosi. [New Testament in Armenian].

      Amsterdam, St Ejmiacin and St Sargis, 1668. Large 12mo (16 x 10 cm). Bound in contemporary full vellum with traces after title written in contemporary hand to spine. All edges gilt. Title page with professional repairs. Vague traces from dampstain on lower part of Pp. 849-888. Woodcuts of the four Evangelists and illustrations in the Apocalypse, all executed by Christoffel van Sichem, 12 after Dürer's Apocalypse. Woodcut ornaments and initials. A fine and clean copy. 934 pp. Lacking pp. 693-96 and last blank.. The exceedingly rare first separate edition of the New Testament in Armenian, remaining the only complete Armenian printed Bible until 1705 (Lane, The Diaspora of Armenian Printin 1512-2012). The present publication still ranks among the most important publications in Armenian.A counsel of Armenian bishops, assembled in 1662, ordered the bible to be printed in Europe. Armenian printing culture left their traditional base in Italy for the Netherlands due to Papal censorship and printing innovations in Amsterdam: "With a view to the planned Bible, Voskan commissioned a third type cut for the press, a Mediaen notrgir, the first type ever cut in that style, An upright cursive. On 11 March 1666 Voskan could finally begin printing the Bible, which he completed on 13 October 1668: the first Bible ever printed in Armenian". (Lane, The Diaspora of Armenian Printin 1512-2012).The establishment of Armenian printing in Amsterdam owes its origin, much as does the printing of Hebrew books, to the necessity of escaping from the the Roman Inquisition, which in Italy controlled the making of type as well as the printing of books. The Armenian Matte'os Carec'i came from Italy to Amsterdam and used Christoffel van Dijck. On 27 November 1658 van Dijck entered into an agreement with the Armenians to provide the material for casting two sizes of Armenian type, one Great Primer, and the other smaller, both meant for printing a Bible, each made up of 170 punches and 240 matrices, and in 1660 some material was received. Matte'os however died before the first book was printed and the whole matter nearly folded but the press was saved by another Armenian merchant Awetis Llicenc', who bought the press and paid all debts but insisted that all proceeds went to the two monasteries in Armenia after whom the press is named - St Ejmiacin and St Sargis. (Macclesfield).Initially Jahannes van Neercassel, the Vatican Apostolic Vicar responsible for Catholic affairs in the Protestant Netherlands, deemed the Armenian Bible dangerous but Voskan won him over and eventually The Roman Catholic authorities subsided the printing. Interest in Armenian typography and printing goes back right to the beginning of the sixteenth century, and a number of Armenian books produced for Armenians had been printed from 1512 onwards, notably a Psalter in Venice in 1566. In addition for non native scholars there had been works printed in Rome - Granjon cut a celebrated Armenian type which was used at the end of the sixteenth century - and in Paris, and interest in Armenian studies also was found in England at the time of the London Polyglot Bible.The first Armenian Bible (the 'Oskan' Bible) was printed in 1666, and was reprinted first in Constantinople in 1705 and then in Venice in 1733. This New Testament printed two years later is the first separate edition of the N.T. in Armenian. The press ran until 1669 when it moved in part to Livorno before its subsequent establishment in Marseilles.OCLC locates only seven copies in libraries world-wide, all seven copies in Europe.Neressian 32Darlow & Moule 1780Brunet V, 761Macclesfield 2389

ÂContraffazione dell'edizione originale elzeviriana che si distingue da questa per la presenza al f. della tipica sfera degli stampatori olandesi. Il Cardinalismo segue di un anno 'Il Nipotismo' e con il meno presentabile 'Puttanismo' forma una trilogia. In quest'opera, di cui esiste anche una traduzione inglese del 1670, si tratta nella prima parte dell'essere della chiasa, delle differenze tra le religioni e tra li principi e clero. Dell'autorita' del Pontefice, come la si intende a roma e come la devono intendere i Sovrani. Nella secondasi discorre del poco conto che tengono li cardinali di difendere la chiesa dalla rapacita' del nepotismo. Nella terza si parla di tutti i trattati maneggi, dispute e discorsie avvenute tra cardinali popolo e imperatori nell'elezioni di tutti i Papi. Poco da dire sul Leti, noto per la sua vasta libellistica anti papista e per le sue movimentate vicende biografiche tra l'Italia, la Svizzera e l'inghilterra ITA

        [Bible] Le nouveau Testament de nostre seigneur Jesus-Christ EDITION ORIGINALE

Bound in full morocco old vintage red. Back to Jansenist nerves. Lace on the cut and interior. Gilt edges. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Mention de sixième édition. Page de titre en rouge et noir. Une page de titre spécifique pour Les epistres de S. Paul. Reliure en plein maroquin vieux rouge d'époque. Dos à nerfs janséniste. Titre doré. Dentelle sur les coupes et intérieure. Tranches dorées. Une page manuscrite anonyme sur la conduite à tenir quant à la connaissance de Dieu, une autre in fine sur l'Apocalypse. Bel exemplaire. Cette traduction, très fameuse dans l'histoire du jansénisme, est le fruit du travail de plusieurs collaborateurs (Antoine Arnault, Le Maître de Sacy...) dont Antoine Le Maître fut le principal artisan et initiateur et dont l'entière traduction de la Bible était le vaste projet ; projet qui vit le jour plus tard et qu'on appela la Bible de Port-Royal, à laquelle on intégra cette première publication du Nouveau Testament. Bien que l'édition fût un immense succès, en raison de son accessibilité, elle entraîna immédiatament un véritable tollé dans le monde religieux, et un grand nombre de libelles et de publications la condamnèrent sévèrement. Elle fit certes l'unanimité chez les jansénistes, mais les jésuites la jugèrent diabolique. La préface, qui justifie exemplairement du travail des traducteurs, est de Le Maître de Sacy, frère d'Antoine Le Maître ; on raconte que celui-ci fut embastillé alors qu'il se rendait à une réunion avec Pierre Nicole et Antoine Arnault pour discuter de la préface qu'il détenait dans sa poche.

        Diarium, oder Tage-Buch über dasjenige,

      Jena: Urban Spaltholtz,, 1668. so sich Zeit einer neun-järigen Reise zu Wasser und Lande, meistentheils in Dienst der Vereinigten Geoctroyrten Niederländischen Ost-Indianischen Compagnie, besonders in denselbigen Ländern täglich begeben und zugetragern. Quarto (187 × 153 mm). Later pinkish-yellow glazed boards, pale green morocco label, compartments formed by a single gilt rule, gilt flower tool to the compartments. Engraved portrait frontispiece and elaborate emblematic additional title page, 15 engraved plates, the view of Batavia folding. A little rubbed at the extremities, some browning, but overall a very good, clean copy. First and only edition, well-represented institutionally, but extremely uncommon in commerce with just one copy at auction in the last 50 years. Fascinating account of the East Indies and Persia by a German soldier in the service of the VOC. "Behr enlisted in 1641 and sailed to Batavia about two years later … he went on to serve in Java, as well as with the fleet of Johann Maetsuycker on the Malabar Coast. Apart from a voyage to Persia, Behr spent four of his six years with the VOC in Ceylon" (Howgego). The originality of parts of Behr's account have been questioned, with comparisons being drawn with the published journals of Johann Jacob Merklein, and in particular with Johann Jacob Saar's record of his service in Ceylon. Behr had returned to Europe in 1650, but his narrative was not published for another 18 years, the most likely explanation for any plagiarism would be to suspect editorial light fingers rather than to cast doubt upon the authenticity of Behr's account. He certainly provides an entirely authentic account of the VOC's attack in 1645 on the strategically important island of Kischmisch, or Qeshm, which dominated the Strait of Hormuz and had been contested between the Persians, Portuguese and English for some time. The Dutch were struggling to improve the terms of their silk trading agreement with the Safavids, and attacked the island in the hope of forcing the Shah's hand in negotiations but were unable to take the fort. The show of force did however achieve some amelioration of their situation, and the incident is illuminating of power relationships in the Gulf in the Early Modern period, challenging "conventional wisdom that the Safavid economy was subservient to the exploitative practices of European Companies" (see Floor & Faghfoory, The First Dutch-Persian Commercial Conflict: The Attack on Qeshm Island, 1645). A view of the attack on Qeshm is included in the somewhat naïve, but nonetheless splendid, plates which also show Batavia, Goa, St. Helena, and Kamron in Persia, and images of some of the unusual flora and fauna encountered by Behr, coconut trees, the cinnamon tree, an elephant hunt, flying fish. Uncommon and highly attractive.

It streches from botany and geology to art history. Carl Gustaf von Brinckman (1764-1847), diplomat and writer, was a large collector. His library, consisting of near 20000 volumes, was after his death bequeathed to the University library of Uppsala, from where it has from time to time been removed duplicates.
