        A blow at modern Sadducism in some philosophical considerations about witchcraft.

      London: Pr. by E. Cotes for James Collins 8vo (17.7 cm, 7"). [28], 183, [13 (1 adv.)] pp. (lacking 121/22, supplied in facsimile).. 1668 Glanvill's curious, long-evolving defense of the existence of witchcraft and black magic — a work recorded in Pepys's diary as having been much enjoyed by him and his wife, although not entirely convincing to them. This treatise offers various reasons both philosophical and empirical to sway those skeptical of the reality of black magic, including anecdotal stories about witchery's effects; it later informed Cotton Mather's Discourse on Witchcraft. The title-page calls this a corrected and enlarged fourth edition; it is actually a => much-revised version of the work Glanvill originally published in 1666 as A Philosophical Endeavour towards the Defence of the Being of Witches and Apparitions, which was in turn revised and republished in 1667 as Some Philosophical Considerations Touching the Being of Witches and Witchcraft, before being printed in the form here twice in 1668; from 1681 onwards, the work was known as Sadducismus Triumphatus. The Philosophical Endeavour portion of the present edition has a separate title-page (dated 1668), as do the other two sections, Palpable Evidence of Spirits and Witchcraft: In an Account of the Fam'd Disturbance by the Drummer, in the House of M. Mompesson, and A Whip for the Droll, Fidler to the Atheist: Being Reflections on Drollery & Atheism. Provenance: Front fly-leaf with elegantly written 17th-century inked inscription (in Latin) noting the book was a gift to "Gulielmo Seeke" from William Pudsey, a graduate of Lincoln College, Oxford; below the inscription Seeke has calligraphically signed his name in English. First main text page with early inked inscription of Joseph Moses; title-page rubber-stamped by the Charles Holbrook Library of the Pacific School of Religion (properly released, with bookplate laid in). Period-style speckled calf, framed in double blind fillets, spine with gilt-stamped title-label, blind-ruled raised bands, and blind-tooled compartment decorations. Ex-library as above, title-page verso with rubber-stamped numeral and shadow of pencilled numeral, one text page with rubber-stamp in lower margin, touching one word without obscuring sense. Pp. 121/22 supplied in fine facsimile. Faint age-toning and occasional light spotting, with offsetting to margins of first and last few leaves; short tear in upper margins of first two leaves of dedication. => A solid and handsomely bound copy of a frankly spellbinding text.

        Esperienze intorno alla generazione degl'Insetti fatte da Francesco Redi Accademico della Crusca, e da lui scritte in una lettera all'illustrissimo signor Carlo Dati.

      - Firenze, all'Insegna della Stella, 1668. 4to (235 x 165mm). pp. (8), 228, title printed in red and black with engraved vignette, with 10 full page engravings and 2 smaller engraved text illustrations and 28 numbered engraved plates. Contemporary vellum. First edition, first issue. A few copies have a plate numbered 29 showing a fly which was issued later. "Redi's masterpiece is considered to be 'Esperienze intorno alla generazione degl'Insetti' (1668), in which he disproved the doctrine of spontaneous generation in insects, inherited from Aristotle and still considered dogma. The microscope revealed in insects an organization as marvelous as it was unsuspected. Redi prepared and observed the egg-producing apparatus in insects, and he also used the microscope to good advantage in observing the morphological elements characteristic of the eggs of each species" (DSB XI, p. 341). "Redi was one of the first to disprove the theory of spontaneous generation" (Horblit 88). A few text leaves with some dampstaining at the outer margin and apart from that a fine copy with clear impressions of the plates.D. Pandi, Bibl. delle opere di F. Redi p. 3 'Raro'; Nissen ZBI, 3319; Norman p. 655 (likewise quoting a copy with 28 plates). [Attributes: First Edition]

      Johan de Witt was one of Europe's greatest statesmen of the 17th century: Appointed the "councillor pensionary" (i.e., the political leader) of Holland (1653-72), he successfully led the United Provinces in the First and Second Anglo-Dutch wars (1652-54, 1665-67) while at the same time effectively consolidating the country's position as a formidable commercial and naval power. This text with a sizable subject index records de Witt's public resolutions from 2 August 1653 to 19 December 1668 on a variety of topics, including the price of gold, the East India Company, and England. => In the dedication, vande Water, the printer of this work, notes that he is producing it so that the documents will not be lost to the future. Evidence of Readership: Notes referring to specific pages written on front free endpaper and a newspaper clipping dated 25 April 1926 laid in text.

        Motets a Deux Voix. avec la Basse-Continue...Tenor, vel Cantus [-Altus, vel Superius; Bassus-Continuus].

      Titles within ornamental woodcut borders & woodcut vignettes on titles. 3 p.l., 26 leaves; 3 p.l., 34 leaves; 3 p.l., 37 leaves. Three vols. Small 4to, 19th-cent. morocco, signed "Bound by Holloway," sides panelled in gilt, spines gilt, a.e.g. Paris: R. Ballard, "seul Imprimeur du Roy, pour la Musique," 1668. First edition and very rare; WorldCat locates only two copies (BnF and Bibliothèque Sainte-Geneviève). This is the fine and large Henry Huth (bookplate) -- W.A. White (?) -- John Whipple Frothingham (bookplate) set. Du Mont (1610-84), French composer, organist, and harpsichordist, was the organist at the church of St Paul in the fashionable Marais district from 1643 until his death. From about 1652 to 1660 he served the king's brother, the Duke of Anjou, as organist and harpsichordist and in June 1660 became the harpsichordist to the new queen, Marie-Thérèse. In 1663 he was appointed sous-maître of the royal Chapel. Du Mont was one of the first to introduce the basso continuo into France and was the first to use figures and to print a separate continuo part. "Five of the 30 motets included in the Motets à deux voix are organized as dialogues for specific characters such as sinners and angels or brides and bridegrooms. O fidelis miseremini (no. 30), shows Du Mont's exploitation of the technique of dramatic monody. The affective intervals, repeated text fragments treated sequentially and the discreet chromaticism owe a debt to Carissimi and mark this work along with the dialogues as an important precursor of Charpentier's Histoires sacrées...Through his grands motets Du Mont achieved a position in French religious music 'somewhat comparable to that of Haydn in the symphony and string quartets' (Garros)."-Grove, Vol. 5, pp. 712-14. Provenance note: Frothingham (1878-1935), who at the time of his marriage in 1921 lived just up the street at 375 West End Avenue, was the nephew of William Augustus White (1843-1927), the great collector of Elizabethan literature and William Blake. Following his uncle's death, Frothingham inherited a portion of White's library which he removed to France and where it remained until very recently. Understandably not listed in Bartlett's Catalogue of the Early English Books chiefly of the Elizabethan Period collected by William Augustus White (1926). Fine set. ❧ The Huth Library (1880), Vol. II, p. 438. .

        Discours de la Méthode pour bien conduir sa Raison et chercher la verité dans les Sciences. Plus la Dioptrique, les Meteores, la Mechanique, et la Musique, qui sont des essais de cette Methode.

      Avec des Remarques e des éclaircissemens necessaires. A' Paris, chez Charles Angot, au Lion d'Or, 1668, - in-4, 2 parti in un volume, pp.303, (23) per la prima parte (''Discours de la Méthode. La Dioptrique. Les Meteores''); pp. 127, (1), per la seconda parte (''Traité de la Mechanique. Abbregé de la Musique''). Impresa dello stampatore Angot sul titolo, iniziali e finalini di pagina istoriati. Nel testo numerose figure scientifiche di grande interesse, in rame. Ottima legatura coeva in piena pelle marmorizzata, doppio filetto oro sui piatti, dorso a nervi con titolo e ricchi fregi oro, tagli rossi. Esemplare assai bello di questa ottima rara edizione, la prima che riunisca tutti i trattati del grande filosofo e scienziato francese (1596-1650), il quale dedicò la vita al progresso di queste scienze e ne fu il ''moderno'' innovatore: il suo ''Discours de la Methode'' (scritto in Olanda ove il libero pensiero era maggiormente autorizzato, ivi pubblicato per la prima volta nel 1637, prezioso e rarissimo), fu la base dei suoi studi in vari campi. Il ragionamento e la verità del pensiero umano (''cogito, ergo sum'') portarono, in seguito, alle importanti scoperte fatte da Locke, Leibnitz e Newton. Descartes vi menziona e discute la scoperta di Harvey sulla circolazione del sangue. Esemplare assai puro e fresco. Horblit, n.24 ''fundamental work in philosophy and on the method of science.''. Dibner, 81. Printing and the mind of man, 129. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A BLOW AT MODERN SADDUCISM IN SOME PHILOSOPHICAL CONSIDERATIONS ABOUT WITCHCRAFT, TO WHICH IS ADDED, THE RELATION OF THE FAM'D DISTURBANCE BY THE DRUMMER, IN THE HOUSE OF MR. JOHN MOMPESSON, WITH SOME REFLECTIONS ON DROLLERY AND ATHEISME

      London: E. C[otes]. for James Collins, 1668. Third Edition n. This major publication on witches is divided into two parts, the first setting out a rationale for belief in witches and spirits, the second providing "palpable evidence" of their existence. Joseph Glanvill (1636-80) presided as rector of the Abbey Church at Bath and was a chaplain to Charles II, but neither these lofty positions nor his membership in the Royal Society deterred him from embracing a belief in the existence of witches. (Glanvill was not unusual among natural philosophers in Restoration England for his belief in spirits and their ability to intervene in the material world.) Ultimately, he was less concerned with defending belief in actual witches than he was with discouraging the disbelief in demons and spirits that could lead to heresy and atheism. To this end, he was actively engaged in gathering evidence of spiritual and psychic phenomena, heading up, with Henry More (1614-87), an association for "psychical research" (a kind of prototype for the modern Society for Psychical Research). It was in this capacity that he ended up doing such things as listening to a ghostly drummer who was tapping out his vengeance in a house at Tedworth in Wiltshire, a rhythmic séance that is dealt with at length in the second part of the text here. Glanvill was known throughout Europe and the New World as one of the leading defenders of belief in witchcraft. Unfortunately, his influence reached Cotton Mather, who greatly affected the Salem witch trials and whose writings drew heavily from Glanvill's work.. 152 x 95 mm. (6 x 3 3/4"). 8 p.l., 160 pp. Two parts in one volume (with continuous pagination, but with three title pages). Third Edition. Contemporary speckled calf, rebacked preserving most of original backstrip, raised bands flanked by gilt and blind rules, panels with small gilt flower at center, black morocco label, marbled endpapers (corners of upper cover restored). Front free endpaper with ownership inscription of "J. H. C." dated 1849; title page with about half the letterpress in old inked facsimile. Wing G-799 and G-818. Thin two-inch crack to tail edge of rear board, leather on upper board a little crackled, leaves trimmed close at head with running titles occasionally cut into, the text lightly browned, otherwise an appealing copy of a book expected to be found dilapidated--the restored binding solid and the text surprisingly fresh and clean.

        THE WORKS OF MR ABRAHAM COWLEY

      London: Printed by J. M. for Henry Herringman, 1668. FIRST COLLECTED EDITION, FIRST PRINTING (without the errata slip added quite late into the first printing, according to Perkin) y. This is a significant association copy of the first edition of the collected works of one of the most precocious poets in the annals of English literature. Cowley (1616-67) was producing poetic works of inexplicable sophistication before he had settled into puberty; he published his first volume of verse at 15; and he went on to become one of the most popular poets of his day. Cowley was a staunch royalist who served in the exiled court of Charles I's queen, Henrietta Maria, where he helped to encode and decipher messages sent between the monarchy's supporters, including the royal couple themselves. Despite having been arrested and imprisioned as a royalist agent at one point, Cowley escaped the Cromwell years largely unscathed and retired to the countryside in 1663. Upon his death, Cowley was not only given the extraordinary honor of burial in Westminster Abbey (noted by the DNB as "the most lavish funeral which had ever been given to a mere man of letters in England") but was also afforded a privileged spot next to the graves of Spenser and Chaucer. Cowley's influence on contemporary poetry was demonstrably deep; his funerary monument refers to him as "the English Virgil," and Perkin asserts that "[Cowley's] fame as a poet exceeded even that of Milton" during the waning years of the Restoration. Our first collected edition of Cowley's work was compiled by his friend and literary executor Thomas Sprat and published the year following the author's death. It includes reprints of his most popular works, among them "Poems" (which contained both "Davideis" and "Pindaric Odes"), "Verses," and "The Mistress," several lesser-known prose essays and poems (including one on Cromwell's government), and some hitherto unpublished material including his "Several Discourses by Way of Essays in Verse and Prose." Thomas Cowley, whose presentation inscription distinguishes this copy as being particularly desirable, was the executor and sole heir of his brother Abraham. It is likely that the recipient was John Farington, a gentleman connected to the family of Sir Thomas Miller, 1st baronet of Chichester, by both rank and marriage. John Farington the elder (ca. 1609-80) and Sir Thomas Miller (ca.1635-1705) both served as MPs in the House of Commons for Chichester after the Restoration. Parliamentary records note that a John Farington married Miller's daughter, though whether this refers to John the elder or one of his sons is unclear.. 290 x 183 mm. (11 1/2 x 7 1/4"). 22 p.l., 41, [1], 80, [4], 70 [i.e. 68], 154, 23, [1] 148 pp. FIRST COLLECTED EDITION, FIRST PRINTING (without the errata slip added quite late into the first printing, according to Perkin). Contemporary sprinkled calf, rebacked with most of original spine laid on, raised bands, spine compartments intricately tooled in gilt, red morocco label (two repaired patches on the front cover and one on rear). Frontispiece portrait of the author, title with printer's device, headpieces to each new section. Three sections with separate title pages as called for in Perkin. A PRESENTATION COPY FROM COWLEY'S BROTHER, with his signed inscription to John Farington dated Feb 7, 1668-9 on the front free endpaper; front pastedown with the bookplate of Sir Thomas Miller, Baronet; front free endpaper with the bookplate of Robert S. Pirie. Perkin B1; Wing C-6649 (conflating first and second printing). Corners slightly rubbed, but the restored binding with little wear. Half-inch ink stain obscuring a dozen words over three leaves, two leaves rather wrinkled and smudged around the edges, probably during printing (text unaffected), other insignificant imperfections, otherwise an excellent copy internally, unusually clean and fresh with ample margins.

        E POLITICA.

      Quattro lettere manoscritte, prima metà del XVIII secolo. - Manoscritto cartaceo, vol. in-4 (mm. 265x180), ff. (2, il primo di indice al verso del foglio di sguardia, il secondo col titolo), 138 (numerazione continuata), leg. coeva p. perg., tit. ms. al dorso. E' costituito da quattro fascicoli, tutti in chiara grafia cancelleresca (gli ultimi due, vergati dalla stessa mano, hanno un bel titolo racchiuso in elegante bordura ornamentale a più colori). - I) ''Lettera di Mons. Cornelio Bentivoglio al N.H. Giambattista Recanati'', ff. 1-10. Interessante lettera scritta da Marco Cornelio Bentivoglio d'Aragona (Ferrara 1668-Roma 1732) inviato da Clemente XI nel 1711 quale nunzio della corte di Francia, nella quale il Bentivoglio, letterato e membro di varie accademie letterarie, invia alcuni suggerimenti e considerazioni in difesa dei poeti italiani attaccati dai critici francesi (Fontenelle, Perrault, La Motte). - II)- ''Istruzione alli ambasciatori ordinari e straordinarij e residenti che appo il papa si dicono legati vicelegati, e nunzij e sovra li costumi, la carica, li privileggi e servitù dell'ambasciatore di Monsù Grandòn cortigiano di Parigi'', ff. 11-62 (ult. 4 bianchi). Curiosissima operetta sugli ambasciatori, loro costumi, loro attribuzioni e privilegi, con interessanti e divertenti aneddoti. - III)- ''Lettera di Confidenza scritta in Ciffra dalla M.ta di Filippo Quarto Re della Spagna al Conte d'Ognate Vice Re di Napoli'', ff. 63-88 (l'ult. b.) Lettera di Filippo IV al Viceré di Napoli, datata 16 settembre 1649, in risposta alle doglianze del Papa Innocenzo X e di tutti i principi d'Europa sui patti non rispettati e sul crudele trattamento inflitto ai napoletani ribelli. Offensiva l'osservazione nei confronti dello Stato Pontificio che sarebbe stato ''in passato quasi mercenario delle guerre di Spagna''. Curioso il giudizio sul duca di Savoia: ''potrebbe dare qualche pensiero''. - IV) - ''Lettera di notizie di Stato del Sig. Marchese di Caracena Governatore e Capitano Gnale dello Stato di Milano In risposta al Sig. Duca dell'Infantado Ambasciator per S.M. Cattolica appresso la S.ta di Nro Sig. Papa Innocenzo X. nella quale scoprendosi la maggior parte de disegni Spagnuoli si manifestano molti altri Secreti de Prencipi d'Europa. 8 Ottobre 1650'', ff. 89-138 (ult. 2 bianchi). Minuto e dettagliato panorama di tutti gli Stati Europei inerente la politica, gli avvenimenti e le guerre del periodo. L'autore, marchese di Fromista e Caracena, fu dal 1648 al 1656 governatore di Milano. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        RELATIONE DELLA SIGNORIA DI LUCA, E SUO DOMINIO.

      Appresso Pietro De La Place 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.

From the distinguished library of the Earls of Macclesfield (Shirburn Castle), with their embossed armorial stamp on the title page; also with the contemporary ownership inscriptions on front and rear free endpapers of Thomas Arnoll (b. 1662) and Elizabeth Arnoll. Closed-tear into A3 (mis-printed as A4) neatly repaired. A very good copy. First edition in English. Géaraud de Cordemoy (1626-1684), philosopher, historian and lawyer, was one of the leading Cartesians of his day; his Discours de la parole was first published at Paris in the same year, 1668. "In his day, judging from the speed with which his writings were translated into Latin and English, Cordemoy was a highly respected, if not an overwhelming presence, on the European intellectual scene... For [him] speech was a sign of humanity, hence unmechanical and, as certain moderns would have it, 'unbounded'. This is why Cordemoy comes in for such considerable praise in [Noam] Chomsky's Cartesian Linguistics [1966]; as Chomsky puts it, Cordemoy has argued 'that there can be no mechanistic explanation for the novelty, coherence, and relevance of normal speech'... The Discourse of Speech may be profitably read still as an entertaining and impressive meditation on topics that touch on issues debated even today by scholars involved in various ways with linguistic matters" (R. W. Rieber ed., Psychology of Language and Thought: Essays on the Theory and History of Psycholinguistics, 1980, pp. 62-64).

        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.

"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.

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.

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.

Contemp. full sprinkled calf, spine gilt in compartments & with raised bands; some minor expertly executed repairs to spine & extremities. A v.g. copy. Descartes? monumental philosophical treatise was first published in Latin, as Principia Philosophiae, in 1644. It expanded on ideas first considered in Discours de la méthode pour bien conduire sa raison ., of 1637. It was in Principia Philosophiae that Descartes defined his theory of conscious reasoning, neatly encapsulated in the now iconic phrase, cogito, ergo sum - ?I think, therefore I am? The first French edition of Principia Philosophiae appeared in 1647, translated by Descartes? friend in Paris, Abbé Claude Picot, 1614-1688. It was slightly expanded from the Latin edition, in that it included as a preface, a letter from Descartes to his translator in which he discusses the substance of his philosophy, and reaction to it by fellow scholars.

La première hagiographie française du célèbre missionnaire et philosophe catalan Raymond Lulle (1235-1315) par le Père Jean-Marie de Vernon religieux du tiers-ordre de saint François qui se fit une spécialité de l'écriture dévoteau XVIIe siècle. « Jésus crucifié soulagea Raymond-Lulle beaucoup par une apparition sensible le jour de la conversion de saint Paul, l'an 1265. Le sauveur du monde était tout rayonnant et répandait une odeur si agréable, que les fleurs les plus odoriférantes, les parfums les plus délicieux n'ont rien de comparable. En mémoire de ce miracle il se renouvelle tous les ans, dans la cellule où résidait alors notre divin anachorète et où il fut gratifié de cette faveur ; des peuples innombrables en sont témoins, qui accourent non pas tant pour la satisfaction de leur odorat que pour avoir lieu de parler avec certitude d'une merveille si ravissante, qui dure un espace suffisant et recommence à diverses fois, afin que l'expérience informant grand nombre de personnes, la publication soit plus croyable et plus authentique. On en a dressé plusieurs actes juridiques à l'instance des principaux du pays, où l'on voit les signes des notaires et toutes les formes observées ». Bel exemplaire. [Attributes: First Edition]

        De L'usage des Passion

      Amsterdam - Jean de Ravesteyn 1668 - A very interesting book on philosophy from the 17th century. The central argument of Senault's work follows on from the preachings of St Augustine in that the only passion capable of moving man is love. Love itself takes on a myriad of passions. Senault argues in this work, that Original Sin is responsible for the disorder of man's emotions. His ultimate argument is that only combined grace and passion can redeem mankind. Written by Jean Francis Senault(1599-1672), the sonof Pierre Senault who wastheking's secretary. Jean Renault wasa French Augustine philosopher and a preacher. In 1618, he joined theJesusOratory. Senault was an enigmatic preacher, studying theology for fifteen years. His well-written sermons werehugely popualramongst the crowds he preached to. Condition: In a calf binding. Externally, with rubbing to extremities and spine. Small section of the spine cover absent near top. Wearing to back board and slight wearing to front board. Two front free-end papers and rear free end papers missing. Internally, firmly bound and pages bright and clean. Overall: VERY GOOD [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      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.
