SPEED, John
London: for Roger Rea,, 1668. with ye historie relation of things worthy memory from a farr larger voulume. [London?: s.n.], 1666; [bound with:] — A Prospect of the Most Famous Parts of the World. 2 works bound in one, oblong octavo (108 × 165 mm). Contemporary mottled calf, neatly rebacked in brown goatskin with original gilt spine laid down, marbled edges. First work with 2 folding maps inserted as plates, other maps full page in the text throughout, 61 in the first part, 20 in the second; all with hand-colouring to style. First work with engraved title. Binding rubbed, first work R2 torn in fore-edge margin without loss and T4 with marginal paper restoration not affecting text, one or two minor paper flaws elsewhere, but a very good copy. An attractive pairing of the miniature versions of the Speed atlases, the engraved maps in the Prospect signed by Pieter van den Keere, brother-in-law of Jodocus Hondius, those of the county atlas unsigned but attributed to the same engraver. The publication history of the miniature Speeds is rather tortuous. At Speed's death, the materials for the History and Theatre were the property of Sudbury and Humble, and later passed to the sole ownership of Humble. He added plates for the miniature county atlas. On his death in 1640, his son William inherited the stock and added the miniature edition of the Prospect. In 1659 William Humble sold his rights in Speed's books and atlases to William Garrett, but Garrett swiftly resold them to Roger Rea the Elder and Younger, who planned new editions.

Gerardus Iohannis Vossius
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. Some chipping to spine, with wear to head and tail. Internally, remaining rearhinge tender but pages remain firmly bound.

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.".

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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Leti Gregorio
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 compo … [Click Below for Full Description]

HOBBES, THOMAS. - [EDITIO PRINCEPS OF THE LATIN TRANSLATION OF "LEVIATHAN"]
(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 th … [Click Below for Full Description]

3 n.n. Bl., 71 S., 9 n.n. S. Index. Mit gestochenem Titel und 3 Kupfertafeln; Titel, 101 S., 27 n.n. S. Index und Tafelverzeichnis. Mit gestochener Titelvignette und 5 gestochenen Tafeln. Pergamentband der Zeit. 2 Teile in 1 Band. Krivatsy 12926. - Lindner 11.2204.01 und 2205.01. - Erster Teil in der zweiten Auflage nach 1660, die gleichzeitig mit dem nur in einer Auflage gedruckten zweiten Teil erschien. Berühmtes Traktat über die sogenannten "Gamskugeln" (den Bezoarsteinen), denen man sowohl magische wie medizinische Kräfte nachsagte. Sie waren sowohl als Talisman wie als Heilmittel sehr gefragt. Auch heute werden die Ansichten über den Nutzen der Gamskugel vor allem unter Jägern kontrovers diskutiert. Die Schrift beschreibt die verschiedenen Formen der Kugeln und gibt einen kulturhistorischen Abriss über deren Anwendung in der Heilkunde. Die Tafeln zeigen verschiedene Steine, das Titelkupfer und die Titelvignette jeweils mit einer abweichenden Gamsdarstellung. Stellenweise gebräunt und stockfleckig, Teil zwei stärker. Rücken fleckig.

Later limp vellum. Engraved title, illustrated with four hundred circular engraved emblems within 7x7cm frames. Loss from lower margin of engraved title and first four prelims due to worming (with no loss of letterpress and some repairs to foremargins), the same worm track recedes to nothing by A8, part of one line of text marked through in early ink on 2M6, short tear in corner of one leaf mended at an early date; main portion of the text block, apart from some tanning characteristic of the paper, very good., A collective edition of this popular series of emblem books, uniting the four sequences: I. 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 editi … [Click Below for Full Description]

GUISE (Henri II de Lorraine, duc de)
Paris, Edme Martin, Sébastien Mabre-Cramoisy, 1668, in 4°, de 4ff. 795 pp., pl. veau moucheté époque, dos orné, plats frappés aux armes de Jacques-Maire Leboeuf, Marquis de Valdahon, colonel d'artillerie (O.H.R. pl. 371), (Ex-libris Robert d'Avril comte de Burey, et Bernard Jubin), bel exemplaire. Edition originale de ces Mémoires rédigés en fait par Philippe Goibaud Du Bois à la demande de Saint-Yon, secrétaire du duc. Henri de Lorraine (1614-1664) cadet destiné au clergé, fut archevêque de Reims. Il ne devint 5e duc de Guise qu'en 1640 après la mort de son frère aîné le prince de Joinville. Son caractère brouillon et instable en fit la fable de son époque. Ces mémoires relatent surtout l'entreprise extravagante de la révolte de Masaniello en 1647, pour asseoir les prétentions familiales sur le royaume de Naples, qui se solda par un lamentable échec (il fut prisonnier des Espagnols de 1648 à 1652). Il tentera une seconde campagne contre Naples en 1654, mais échouera aussi. ¶ Bourgeois & André Sources 785.

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.

Amsterdam: A. Frisius, 1668, Amsterdam - FIRST EDITION IN LATIN. 12 mo. Contemp. vellum over boards with overlapping fore-edges. (26), 232, (2, blank), (233)-455, (16, index), (1, errata) pp. Engraved title page + large engraved vignette on printed title + 6 folding engraved plates + a woodcut in the text. A very good, crisp copy. "Neri (1576-c.1614), is remembered only for 'L'arte veraria' (1612), a little book in which many, although by no means all, of the closely guarded secrets of glassmaking were printed for the first time. .The main part of text deals with the coloring of glass with metallic oxides to give not only clear and uniform colors but also various veined effects. There are chapters on making lead glass of high refractive index and enamel (opaque) glass by the addition of tin oxide." (D.S.B.). Neri's unillustrated book was considerably extended over the next two centuries with the addition of copperplates and commentary. The present edition, the first appearance of the text in Latin (rendered by Andreas Frisius), was translated from the English version prepared by Christopher Merrett for the Royal Society in 1662. Merrett's 'observations' doubled the length of the book and appear here on pages 233 to 455. Duveen, p. 427. Ferguson II.134. Smith Coll., p. 342. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
