      Amsterdam - ApudJoannem Blaev12.5 by 8; [xii]634[44] pp. 1668 - A single volume of Gehrard Voss's (1577-1649) intriguing catalogue of pre-Christian paganism. Scarce. Last copy seen in 1978. Voss was educated at Leyden, where he developed a friendship with the famous Hugo Grotius. He was made Regent of the States-General for Leyden in 1615, but had to resign in 1619 thanks to controversy brought on by a theological work published the preceding year. Voss went on to become professor of history at Leyden and eventually at the Athaneum in Amsterdam; having twice turned down offers of positions at Cambridge. In the Theologia Gentili, Voss draws upon the earlier word De Diis Syris in an exploration of pre-Christian religious practice. The three books contained within this volume cover the origin, development, worship, and idols of the Pagan world. Condition: Externally, bound in old calf with rubbing and loss of calf to corners of boards and joints. Front hinge has failed withboard and preliminary pages detached.

        Les Principes de la Philosophie. Escrits en Latin, par René Descartes. Et traduits en François par un de ses Amis. Revues, & corrigez en cette derniere Edition

      Bobin & Le Gras Paris: Bobin & Le Gras, 1668. Hardcover. Very Good. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. (55), 477 pp, (2). With 22 full-page woodcuts (1 folding) and 70 woodcut illustrations in text. Ink ownership inscription of Raymond Vieussens to front pastedown & shelf mark on front free endpaper. Bound in contemporary French calf, spine in six compartments with gilt florets and title; some wear to boards but generally an excellent copy, clean and fresh.Scarce edition of Descartes' magnum opus, bearing the manuscript ex-libris of Raymond Vieussens (1635-1715), Royal Physician to Louis XIV and an important anatomist in his own right. Drawing directly on the dualistic theories of Descartes, Vieussens became fascinated by the actions of the heart and of the brain in particular. "In his speculations on physiology, Vieussens drew inspiration from both the mechanistic philosophy of Descartes and the iatrochemical ideas of F. de la Boë (Sylvius). He believed that he had demonstrated the existence of the nervous fluid." (DSB) "Without Descartes, the seventeenth-century mechanization of physiological conceptions would have been inconceivable," notes the DSB, ".No other great philosopher, except perhaps Aristotle, can have spent so much time in expermintal observation. According to Baillet, over several years he studied anatomy, dissected and vivisected embryos of birds and cattle, and went on to study chemistry. His correspondence from the Netherlands described dissections of dogs, cats, rabbits, cod, and mackerel; eyes, livers, and hearts obtained from an abattoir.". Descartes' magnum opus, his Principia Philosophiae, presented to the world the purest expression of his mechanist vision of the universe, seized upon eagerly by later anatomists such as Thomas Willis, Nicolas Steno, and, as is evident from the present copy, Raymond Vieussens.Intended to replace the Aristotelian texts used in universities with a curriculum based on physical and immutable laws of nature, Descartes' Principles, especially in its French editions, comes replete with numerous plates of his famous swirling vortices as well as discussions of the Copernican system. Curiously, as C. F. Fowler has noted, a direct reference to the Principia is lacking from the Index Librorum Prohibitorum of 1664 which otherwise banned most of Descartes' works - although a blanket clause is also given, "and the philosophical works of same author". Evidently the decree of the Catholic Church disuaded neither French publishers from printing the work nor the Royal Physician from purchasing it! In particular, Veussens seems to have been inspired by the Cartesian concept of cerebral localization; but while Descartes considered the pineal body to be the seat of animal spirits and the soul, Veussens regarded the corpora striata as the seat of the imagination. "Inspired by both Descartes's mechanistic and the iatrochemical philosophies, Vieussens studied the white matter of the brain by tracing the path of its fibers" (Schlager & Lauer), eventually providing us with an early description of the brain's centrum semiovale, sometimes referred to as Vieussens' centrum. Following his well-received Neurographica Universalis (1685), the Royal Physician issued his Traité nouveau des Liqeurs de Corps Humain (1705) in which he describes the three Cartesian elements in detail and their functions within the body.* Guilbert, "Les Principes" (13); cf also Schlager & Lauer (eds), Science and Its Times 3 (Gale, 2001), p. 154; Fowler, Descartes on the human soul: philosophy and the demands of Christian doctrine (Kluwer, 1999), pp 8-10. For the impact of Descartes' philosophy see PMM 129.

        Itinerario para Parochos de Indios en que se tratan las materias mas particulares, tocantes a ellos

      A fundamental source of information on the costumes of the Indians in Ecuador and the Missions, the exceedingly rare first edition. 1668. Madrid. Ioseeph Fernandez de Buendia. In folio (287 mm x 190 mm). 30 ff + 563 + 40. Contemporary vellum, ties as fragments but present, spine attractively lettered in ink, slightly soiled and dusty, in its original condition. First folio with marginal tears and fraying, a few mainly inner marginal worm holes, some faint water staining to a few leaves, stronger to some, manuscript ownership inscription on title page, however generally clean, a good copy. The exceedingly rare first edition. According to Sabin, this is "One of the most interesting accounts of the Indies, their laws, privileges, religion, etc." Pe?a Montenegro (1596 ? 1687) was Bishop of Quito (Ecuador), a position of the outmost importance and influence which granted him access to Spanish policy towards the Indians in the New World and the practical efficiency of the Spanish treatment towards them; Kraus says "(Pe?a Montenegro) is of the highest importance for the knowledge of the laws regarding the missions among the Indian population: it contains the decrees, rules and regulations for the parish priests as missionaries". The work contains important references of the Missions and the costumes of the natives, reminding the clergy to respect their nature and adapt to their costumes. Pe?a condemns as a sin accepting a missions without knowing the native language ?and thus urging the clergy to learn the local language instead of only promoting the Spanish. The work contains references to tobacco and excessive smoking ?extremely early mention-, mining and idolatry amongst others. Provenance, manuscript ownership inscription on title page "Don Juan de Zeballos". Extremadamente rara primera edici?n de esta obra fundamental de Americana. Seg?n Sabin, se trata de "Una de la mas interesantes obras referentes a las Indias, sus leyes, privilegios, religi?n, etc.". Pe?a Montenegro (1596 ? 1687) fue Obispo de Quito, posici?n de singular importancia e influencia que le gan? el acceso a la pol?tica de Espa?a hacia los Indios en el Nuevo Mundo y la eficiencia pr?ctica del tratamiento de los Espa?oles a ellos. Kraus dice, refiri?ndose a Pe?a, que "es de la mayor importancia para el conocimiento de las leyes de las misiones entre la poblaci?n indiana: contiene decretos, reglas y regulaciones para los sacerdotes de parroquia y misionarios".

        Ost- und West-Indischer wie auch Sinesischer Lust- und Stats-Garten

      N¸rnberg,: Johann AndreÊ Endter, 1668.. Thick folio, engraved title, followed by title-page in red & black, envoi to German Emperor Leopold I with separate armorial frontispiece, 65 plates, with one textual illustration and the terminal Errata leaf; contemporary full pigskin with blind-embossed armorial stamps "Insigne Preposit Rayhradensis Ordinis S Benedicti" (with manuscript annotations from the Benedictine library on title-page), leather straps on brass clasps repaired but original, banded spine with early manuscript spine title. A monumental work on the East and West Indies and Asia; a splendid copy, in a well-preserved binding from a Benedictine library, of this work of exotic natural history by one of the most prolific authors of the seventeenth century. This ornate and lavishly illustrated book was a good companion to aristocratic collections of curiosities and Wunderkammern. The descriptions of natural history are interspersed with ethnographical musings, homeopathic advice on folk medicines and the history of European exploration and expansion, both actual and fabulous.The three books of this vast work treat of the natural history, the customs, and the curiosities of the East and West Indies, and the Americas, 'with many very curious details' (Sabin), as curious as speculations about which animal might triumph in a fight between a tiger and a dragon, the anatomy of mermaids and mermen, or the habits of the flying tortoises of China. One of its delights is the extraordinary series of detailed plates, including two views of Batavia (founded 1623) showing the harbour packed with junks, packets, and exclusively Dutch ships.Erasmus Franz (or Franciscus), was born in L¸beck in 1627 and died in Nuremberg in 1694. A polymath, he is best known for his indefatigable collecting of all sorts of folklore, natural history and ethnography; his massive studies, often published under coy pseudonyms, were bestsellers in seventeenth-century Europe. It is said that his career as a writer was forced upon him after he broke both his legs in a bad fall and so took a position with the publishers Endter.As the work itself shows, Franz was knowledgeable about ancient and modern voyages and travels alike. One of the most interesting aspects of this publication is the 6-page preface listing the 'works consulted', which shows that he was able to access an amazing variety of published and manuscript material. Thus, works such as Caesar's De Bello Gallico, the Jewish histories of Flavius Josephus or the work of Pomponius Mela are listed alongside German editions of Thomas Cavendish and Francis Drake, or Latin editions of Columbus, Vespucci, Desiderius Erasmus, and the Cosmographia of the cartographer Sebastian Munster.Because of the work's scope, it is frequently cited by histories and bibliographies of the period. Borba de Moraes, for example, marvelled that the 'bibliography is quite complete, and for Brazil contains a considerable number of the books published up to that time, with the exception of Portuguese works'.Borba de Moraes, 323; John Carter Brown, 668/61; Sabin, 25463.

"This work may be considered as the most complete and authentic contemporary account of the war between Holland and England, the consequence of which was the final loss of New-Netherland, by the peace of Breda, 1667". Sabin, 38246, 38247 (Dutch editions). Pages 22-25 describe briefly the capture of New Amsterdam and set out the terms of the surrender of the province to the English. On page 36 the province is referred to as "le Nouveau Jorck", this book being one of the earliest to use this new name. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING.

        Le putanisme de Rome, ou Le Conclave General des Putains de cette Cour, Pour l'Election d'un nouveau Pontise. Traduction libre de l'Italien.

      Cologne (ma Leida), s.e. (Hackius), s.d. ma 1668. 1668 In 12° (cm13,2x7,7) pagg. (8)-132-(4) legatura coeva in piena pergamena, titolo calligrafato al dorso , marca tipografica al frontespizio. Gregorio Leti (Milano 1630 - Amsterdam 1701), anticlericale ed avverso al cattolicesimo fin dalla prima giovinezza, si stabilì a Ginevra nel 1660, sposando la figlia di un medico e convertendosì al calvinismo. Numerosi furono i suoi libelli di polemica anticattolica. Durante il soggiorno a Ginevra svolse incarichi diplomatici per conto di Venezia, della Francia e del Granduca di Toscana. Scrittore fecondissimo per genio e per necessità di denaro, non si peritò nell'attingere a piene mani dal lavoro di altri scrittori contemporanei. Il suo libertinismo intellettuale, il temperamento avventuroso e insofferente delle regole, entrò spesso in conflitto con il rigore dell'ambiente ginevrino. Processato per diffamazione del protestantesimo e per malcostume nel 1679, fu costretto a riparare in Francia. Luigi XIV, per accordargli la sua protezione, mise come condizione un suo ritorno al cattolicesimo, condizione che Leti rifiutò. Nel 1680 fu a Londra dove ricevette da Carlo II l'incarico di scrivere il «Teatro Britannico». Ma l'eccesso della polemica anticattolica lo fece bandire anche dall'Inghilterra. Il 1683 lo vede finalmente in Olanda dove continuerà nella sua attività di scrittore e polemista fino alla morte. Il «Puttanismo di Roma» è opera fondatamente attribuita a Leti, secondo quanto afferma Melzi (ediz. del pag. 388) : "Non puossi mettere in dubbio che Gregorio Leti non abbia composti gli ambedue accennati libelli (...) per ciò che si asserisce nell'avvertimento che precede la vita di Cromwello, composta dallo stesso Leti, dove dopo essersi rammentate l'altre di lui opere anonime, si legge: «Ed in questa maniera può dirsi che l'opere date in luce dal sig. Leti a quest'anno 1692 giungano al numero di 80, senza comprendere il Puttanismo Moderno, Il Conclave delle Puttane, Il Puttanismo di Roma, Il Parlatorio delle Monache, Il Ruffianismo del Gobbo di Rialto, delle quali opere ne vogliono autore il detto sig. Leti, che però da lui si niega; ed a' suoi confidenti, allorché l'interrogano sopra tale materia suol rispondere - Delicta juventutis meae et ignorantias meas ne memineris, Domine, etc.»". L'opera si inquadra nella polemica calvinista sulla dissolutezza dei costumi della corte papale ed è una satira violentemente anticlericale, composta da una serie di dialoghi in confessionale, dove vengono commesse varie oscenità. Esemplare in ottime condizioni di conservazione. Prima edizione in lingua francese, quasi certamente coeva all'originale in lingua italiana. (Bompiani 1956: vol. II pag. 513; Gay - Lemonnier 1900: vol. III pag. 894; Graesse 1950: vol. V pag. 514; Hayn 1889: pag. 60; Krivatsy 1982: n. 168).

        Leviathan, sive De Materia, Forma, & Potestate Civitatis ecclesiasticae et civilis + Elementorum Philosophiae sectio tertia de Cive.

      (Amsterdam, Apud Ioannem Blaeu, 1668). 4to. Bound together in one contemporary full vellum with handwritten title to spine. A bit of wear to extremities. Very elaborate, neat, contemporary handwritten notes to inside of front board (½ page) and to front free end-papers (3 pages), all in Latin. Contemporary owner's name to title-page: "D. Burchard" Last few leaves with a marginal wormhole, far from affecting text. "De Cive" evenly browned. With both half-title, as issued (the separate volumes have no general title-pages). [Leviathan: (4), 365, (3 - Indices) + errata-slip. + [De Cive:] (16), 174 pp.This volume constitutes extremely scarce variants of the separately sold volumes 8 and 5 of the Opera. Volume 8 is made up of "Leviathan" and constitutes the FIRST LATIN EDITION of the work. Like Keynes 899, this copy "being without signatures 5b and 5c, and having the errata printed on a slip following 5a 4. In all other copies we have seen the errata are printed at the foot of 5a 4v." (Macdonald & Hargreaves). Volume 5 is made up of the "De Cive" and constitutes the ONLY EDITION of the work, apart from the exceedingly scace first edition, to appear in 4to. This copy seems to be a rare variant, in which the title is not merely "Libros tres de Cive; ad eundem" as noted in Macdonad and Hargreaves", but "Elementorum Philosophiae sectio tertia de Cive", as otherwise ONLY the first edition is called. All later registered editions are called "Elementa Philosophica de Cive" and none of them have the original title as here and are furthermore in either 12mo or 8vo.Supporting the theory that the single volumes were meant for separate distribution and thus sold separatately, please note Macdonald & Hargreaves: "Keynes 862 contains VI and VII only, apparently in original boards, suggesting that parts of the collected OPERA were sold separately".. The extremely scarce first editions, in even scarcer variants, of the separately distributed and sold volumes VIII and V of the first collected edition of Hobbes' works, constituting the seminal first Latin edition of "Leviathan" and the only 4to-edition of the "De Cive" to have appeared apart from the extremely scarce first edition (1642). This first collected edition of Hobbes' works is the most desirable, the most sought-after and by far the most important. It is to this collected edition that one still refers when quoting Hobbes' works academically. Of greatest importance is the fact that it is here that Hobbes' seminal main work, Leviathan, appears for the first time in Latin, providing us for the first time with the text in the form that Hobbes himself had in mind.The hugely important "Opera Philosophica... Omnia", or "Opera Omnia" as it is often referred to, constitutes Hobbes' only successful attempt to have his philosophy published during the period. In 1662 the Licensing Act, a statute requiring that all books had to be approved in advance of publication by the Archbishop of Canterbury or the Bishop of London, was enforced, after which Hobbes found himself completely barred from having his political, theological, and historical works published. After his hugely successful 1668 Latin "Opera Omnia", printed in Amsterdam, he did not dare publish his works abroad either, however, and the "Opera Omnia" remained the only important philosophical or political work of his to be published during the period. It was a great sales success. The most important part of the 8 part "Opera Omnia" is the 378 page long final part, which constitutes the editio princeps of the Latin translation of Hobbes' groundbreaking main work, the work from which the "social contract" theory originates, his seminal "Leviathan". "The Latin "Leviathan" was published towards the end of 1668 within the framework of an edition of Hobbes's collected Latin works, the so-called "Opera Omnia" [i.e. Opera Philosophica... Omnia], published with Johan Blaeu in Amsterdam. "Leviathan, sive De Metria, Forma, & Potestate Civitatis Ecclesisticae et Civilis. Authore Thoma Hobbes, Malmesburiensi" is the eighth and last piece of this collection and the only one published there (in Latin) for the first time; it is therefore the only text to receive (on its last page) a list of errata. The three chapters making up an "Appendix ad Leviatham" (and replacing the "Review and Conclusion" of the English edition) need not detain us here, as they are proper to the Latin version. We only want to note in passing that the few translations from the English "Leviathan" contained in the last chapter of his "Appendix" was worked out independently of the translation and in fact prior to it." (Rogers, Karl Schuhmann, "Thomas Hobbes Leviathan, Vol. 1", p. 241).Not only is this the first Latin edition of Hobbes' main work, it is furthermore of great importance to the study of the Leviathan and to the understanding of the development of Hobbes' thought. All later editions of the Latin version of "Leviathan" are greatly corrected and none of them appear in the same version as the present one, which provides us with the text in the form that comes closest to what Hobbes himself desired his masterpiece to be. "[...] Given these results, we may conclude that LL [i.e. the 1668 Latin Leviathan] should be counted an important source for the text of the English "Leviathan". LL is definitely more than a translation that teaches us little or nothing about the text translated. On the contrary, it is based on an independent manuscript copy of "Leviathan", and more specifically on a copy Hobbes had kept with him all the time and had apparently continued to annotate and correct. The variants of LL must therefore be treated with the greatest care wherever there are textual problems in "Leviathan", and not only in those cases in which the text of all English versions is defective. Even where it is a matter of deciding between given variants, LL should have an important, if not decisive voice. Given the fact that LL was worked out integrally by Hobbes at a rather late date, it must also be considered to contain his last decisions regarding the text as a whole. (Rogers, Karl Schuhmann, "Thomas Hobbes Leviathan, Vol. 1", p. 249).Soon after this first Latin edition, many others appeared:"So far, when speaking of LL [i.e. Leviathan in the Latin version] and quoting this work, we have always and only been referring to its 1668 edition as published within Hobbes' "Opera Omnia". But there were also other editions after that date. The first of these appeared in 1670 as a separate edition. It has, unsurprisingly the same imprint as the 1668 edition, for it was published as before with Johan Blaeu, who only added to the title page the bibliographical information "Amstelodami, Apud Joannem Blaeu. M.DC.LXX." Another separate edition was published "Londini. Apud Johannem Tomsoni. M.DC.LXXVI." and a third one, also with John Thom(p)son, "Londini Typis Joannis Thomsonii, M.DC.LXXVIII."." (Rogers, Karl Schuhmann, "Thomas Hobbes Leviathan, Vol. 1", p. 250).Macdonad&Hargreaves: 104; Brunet III:239-40

        Duclose in the role of Ariane

      Duclose, Marie-Annede Chateauneuf (1668-1748). Duclose in the role of Ariane, 1714. Engraving on Paper. 1714. Engraved by Louis Desplaces (1632-1739). After a painting by Nicolas de Largilliere (ca. 1656-1746) [cf: Benizet III, 217]. Large folio (20" x 15"), with good margins. A fine impression with rich contrasts in shading, and excellent detail indicating this is an early impression before the engraving plate had been worn. Mari-Anned Chateauneuf Duclose (1668-1748). French actress who was accepted by the Comedie Francaise in 1693, where she acted in tragic roles, later replacing Mlle Champmesle and sharing feminine leads with Mlle Desmares. Her strength lay in declamation, and she was admired in the roles of Moliere. Her great talent was eclipsed by her volatile temper and by the changing styles of acting best exemplified by that of Adrienne Lecouvrer, her young rival. Duclos in the role of Ariane is one of the grand portraits of the French baroque theatre and one of the treasures of Le Musee de la Comedie Francaise (Dacier, 20).

Stirpium; II. Animalium quadrupedium; III Volatilium & insectium; and IV: Aquatilium & reptilium. Camerarius (1534-1598), the son of the German humanist, was a practicing physician and botanist, and served as dean of the medical college at Nuremburg until his death. This work, originally published in sequence in Nuremburg 1590-1604, prints each emblem accompanied by a Latin distich along with an essay in Latin. It proved a model for further works in the genre, including a continuation by Jacob Bornitz. The fourth century, devoted to aquatic animals and reptiles, was published posthumously under the supervision of his son, Ludwig Camerarius. The original editions feature large in Nissen and Hunt, where the engravings are ascribed to Hans Sibmacher. The engravings were reworked for the Frankfurt editions of 1654-61. BRUNET I:1513.

In diesem Werk entwickelte er eine universale philosophische Sprache, da Wissenschaftler befürchteten, die Ungenauigkeit der allgemeinen Sprache würde den wissenschaftlichen Fortschritt hindern. Er setzte sich damit das Ziel, das gesamte Wissen im Universum detailliert darstellen zu können - genauer, als es mit Englisch oder einer anderen Sprache möglich war. So entwickelte er ein System von Tabellen und graphischen Zeichen, um die gewünschten Konzepte darstellen zu können.- Teilweise schwacher Feuchtrand im weißen Kopfsteg.

      Gertrude the Great, Saint. (1256-1302) Pratiqve Des Exercices Spiritvels, Tirée Des Oevvres de Sainte Gertrvde. Vtile & profitable à l?Ame devote, qui desire s?avancer à la perfection. Avec plusieurs Meditations & salutaires enseignmens, tant pour les personnes seculieres, que pour la Profession Religieuse, & la renovation des V?ux. Nouvelle Edition, reveuë, corrigée, & mise en la pureté de nostre langue. Et enrichie de plusieurs figures en taille douce.  Paris: Chez Iean Covterot, ruë S. Iacques, au petit Iesus, prés les Mathurins, 1668. An extremely rare book. No copies found in any of the libraries. Copies of Jean Couterot's works only hold small numbers in libraries across the world. His publications were very small runs and a limited number have survived. Saint Gertrude the Great:Duodecimo, 5.94 x 3.25 in.   a8, e2, A-Z8/4, Aa-Zz4/8; lacking the engraved frontispiece (of Saint Gertrude), but with twenty one full-paged engravings, and four full-paged engraved tables. The engraving on page 272 is mistakenly printed upside down.  This copy is in very good condition internally, without stains or browning. Some of the corners toward the end are a bit curled, but this is very minor. The binding is contemporary limp parchment with ties, and is also in good condition. The bookplate of the Maison des Oiseaux of Paris is pasted inside the front board.         ?In the ?Exercises? we have the saint at her best. They were written for her Sisters in religion and we feel she has here a free hand unhampered by the deep humility which made it so repugnant for her to disclose favors personal to herself. The ?Exercises,? which are seven in number, embrace the work of the purification and sanctification of the soul from the reception of baptismal grace to the preparation for death. Her glowing language deeply impregnated with the liturgy and Scriptures exalts the soul imperceptibly to the heights of contemplation. [...] Her writings are also colored by the glowing richness of that Teutonic genius which found its most congenial expression in symbolism and allegory. The spirit of Saint Gertrude, which is marked by freedom, breadth, and vigor, is based on the Rule of Saint Benedict. Her mysticism is that of all the great contemplative workers of the Benedictine Order from Saint Gregory to Blosius. Hers, in a word, is that ancient Benedictine spirituality which is simply the spirit of the Church.? (CE) The engraved illustrations printed in this edition are quite entrancing. One scene depicts Christ and Mary Magdalene entering the Garden of Gesthamene, while in the background in a different garden there are two pan-like devils dancing, a crowned skeleton, and a serpent wrapped around a tree. In another the soul is depicted as a little castle whose steps are religion, hope, and faith. Birds holding banners with problematic or sinful actions are assaulting the castle. A peacock is perched on its balcony. Several other engravings are more involved, with many layers of meaning, which in some cases are organized to serve as memorization guides. Equally as interesting are the four engraved tables. A table is provided for recording one?s faults, including, vain sadness, temper, envy, sensuality, vanity in habits, and others.

        Cum annotationibus Joannis Schefferi Argentoratensis hac secunda editione subsidio trium manuscriptorum locis inumerata emendatioribus et auctioribus.

      Uppsala, Henricus Curio, 1668. 8:o. (8),+ 184 s. Bunden efter: SCHEFFERUS, Johannes (utg.) Incerti scriptoris Sveci qui vixit circa ann. Christi MCCCXLIV. Breve chronicon de archiepiscopis et sacerdotib. cæteris ecclesiæ Upsaliensis nunquam antea publicatum. Primus edidit, notisque ac indice necessarius adornavit Johannes Schefferus. Uppsala, Henricus Curio, 1673. 8:o. (10),+ 256,+ (22) s. Inlagan ren och tryckt på bättre papper. Sammanbunden med: SCHEFFERUS, Johannes. De orbibus tribus aureis nuper in Scania erutis è terra disquisitio antiquaria. Stockholm, Nicolai Wankif, 1675. 8:o. (8),+ 132,+ (3) s.+ utvikbar träsnittsplansch. Välbevarat samtida pergamentband. Bengt Löws namnteckning i blyerts. Försättsbladet med bortklippt namnteckning. Fint exemplar. Collijn sp. 671, 164 resp. 826 (nämner ej planschen). Fant 5:2, 34 resp. 39 (med felaktig titel). Schweiger II, s. 701. Warmholtz 1883 och 1588. Schück III, s. 280. Det första arbetet är den andra och förbättrade upplagan av Schefferus utgåva av den galliska talaren Pacatus hyllningstal över den östgotiska kejsaren Theodosius på 300-talet e.Kr. Första upplagan utkom i Stockholm 1651. För sin textutgåva utnyttjade Schefferus tidigare outnyttjade manuskript, bl.a. från Italien, och han förbättrade, enligt Fant, texten i denna andra upplaga med jämförelser av ytterligare tre. Den är dessutom utökad med en levernesbeskrivning över Pacatus och kommentarer. Schefferus utgåva av den nyupptäckta upsaliensiska ärkebiskopskrönikan, "Incerti scriptoris", blev genom hans lärda kommentarer en del av striden med Olof Verelius om Uppsala hednatempels läge och ålder. "De orbibus tribus" räknas som Sveriges första arkeologiska arbete och är en beskrivning av tre guldbrakteater som en bonde råkat på vid plöjning av en åker i Vä i Skåne 1674. Återigen var det Hadorph som överlämnade dem till Schefferus för publicering. Schefferus, som alltid en försiktig man, vågar endast uttala sig om att de måste vara från förkristen tid men lämnar all övrig tolkning fri
