        Il tabacco opera ... Nella quale si tratta dell'origine, historia, coltura, preparatione, qualità, natura, virtù, & uso in fumo, in polvere, in foglia, in lambitivo, et in medicina della pianta volgarmente detta tabacco ... Trattato naturale, medico, morale, e curioso.Rome, Filippo Maria Mancini, 1669. 8vo With 6 full-page woodcuts. Later sheepskin parchment.

      Arents II, 309; Krivatsy, p. 1140. First and only edition of an informative compendium on tobacco by Benedetto Stella. In his preface Stella's states that he doesn't have any intention to be original and just wants to make a compendium comprehensible to all of his countrymen. For this he used the usual sources, such as Magnenus and Neander, but also includes some controversial ideas. Mentioning the papal interdictions against the use of tobacco by the clergy, Stella thought the use of tobacco necessary for Catholic priests and monks who lived a chaste life, since he believed the smoke would repress the "sensual urges". The book includes information on the quality, cultivation, and preparation of the plant, together with an exhaustive examination of tobacco's medical qualities. Other chapters deal with the custom of smoking, different types of pipes (also shown on the woodcut illustrations), tobacco's role in divination among the Indians, and its rapid spread throughout the world.Browned with some occasional minor foxing, with a water stain on pages 77-115. Very small tear in the vellum on the front board, but otherwise in very good condition.

Pp. 22-106. ?Johannes Nieuhof (1618-1672), steward to the China delegation of the Dutch East India Company, wrote Gezantschap der Neerlandtsche Oost-Indische Compagnie aan den grooten Tartarischen Cham, den tegenwoordigen keizer van China, published in 1665. This book was divided into two parts, the first being an account of the trip made by the Dutch to Beijing in 1655 in an attempt to establish free trade with the Qing government, and the second half being a description of China. John Ogilby, for the English edition, added a number of additional parts from important sources. Ogilby started his career as a dancer at court. An injury forced him to retire and he moved to Ireland where he opened a theatre. He became Master of the Revels for Ireland, but the Irish rebellion forced him to leave. He returned to London when he was fifty and married a wealthy widow; her capital helped to enable him to begin his career as a publisher. He started with translations of classics. His first book was a translation of Virgil, which proved to be highly popular and was reprinted several times. He followed this with translations of the Iliad, Aesop and the Bible. Unfortunately most of his work was destroyed in the Great Fire of London in 1666. He petitioned the King, stating he had lost over ?3000 worth of stock and asked that he be able to import French paper tax free. This meant that his works would be of a better quality and cheaper to produce. In 1669 he published the first edition of the Dutch Embassy to China. This book combined Nieuhoff?s original work with letters from the Jesuit father John Adams as well as a partial translation of Athanasius Kircher?s China Illustrata (1667). The first edition was sold by lottery and such a success that Ogilby was able to set up his own printing shop and led him to publish his series of great atlases. Ogilby originally planned to publish one atlas for every continent, but in the end published only Africa (1670), Atlas Japannensis (1670), Atlas Chinensis (1671), America (1671) and Asia (1673). These atlases were folios printed on fine paper, which he had imported from France, and were heavily illustrated and included maps. ___________________ The mid-seventeenth century was a period of great change for China. The year 1644 saw the fall of the Ming dynasty with the invasion of the Manchu forces from the north. The Qing troops destroyed cities and killed thousands in their conquest. This destruction was still evident eleven years later, when the embassy took place. Repeated passages reference the destruction of towns and cities and the vast numbers of people killed. But it was directly because of this cataclysmic change in dynasty that the embassy was allowed to take place. The Dutch United East India Company, or Vereenigde Oost-Indische Comapagnie (VOC) was greatly interested in the profits to be had from improving their dealings with Asia. And the VOC had heard from the Jesuit Martin Martini that the: Great Cham of Tartary had Conqur?d the Empire of China, and all the Kingdoms belonging thereunto, with the slaughter of some hundred thousands of people, and had proclaimed a Free Trade in the city of Canton to all Foreign People. They decided to send an embassy to China in the hopes of establishing free trade with the Chinese. At first they met with officials in Canton who assured them that such free trade would exist, but that a delegation would need to be sent to the Emperor for his official agreement. The VOC was the first embassy to make the to see the new Qing Emperor, Shunzhi (1638?1661) at Beijing, which the Manchu had established as their new capital. The negotiations were slow; the Dutch wished to be allowed to trade yearly at Canton, and only visit Beijing every five years, whilst the Emperor thought only of their visiting the capital and bringing gifts. The VOC clearly wanted trade, whilst the Imperial throne saw their visits as tribute. As their letters show, the Jesuits at court were strongly cautioning the Emperor against establishing free trade with the Dutch. They claimed that: The Hollanders may not come into the Kings Presence because they will not submit themselves to those Ceremonies of Reverence accustom'd in this Palace. This, however, proved not to be the case and the Dutch submitted themselves without complaint to the ceremonies of the court when entering the presence of the Emperor, something later embassies, such as that of Lord McCartney and envoys were unwilling to do. The time it took for the negotiations allowed those in the embassy?s party plenty of time to observe the sights of the palace. Nieuhof was clearly impressed with what he saw saying that it "exceeds all the royal palaces in Europe for splendour, art, wealth and pleasure." In the descriptions of China the three religions of Confucianism, Taoism and Buddhism are all mentioned. The religious traditions and beliefs are discussed separately as well as the different roles of their priests. Taoists are singled out in particular as responsible for exorcising people?s houses of devils and Buddhists are said to be the least regarded of the three religions. Religious ceremonies including funerals and exorcisms are discussed. Chinese printing is discussed at length; Nieuhof is impressed with the speed and technique of the Chinese printers, and compares it favourably with printing in Europe: ... they print with this board ... but with so much ease and quickness that one man is able to print 5000 sheets in a day. And in the boring of the boards they are so dexterous that they will cut out one almost as soon as an European compositor can make ready a form to the press. The position and role of women in China - both the "Tartar" and the "Chinese" women - are included. The book describes the Chinese practice of foot binding, something that is lacking in most early accounts of China. Nieuhof wrote that their: chiefest Beauty (as they imagine) consists in the smallness of their Feet; and therefore when they are young, they bind and swath their Feet, they keep them from growing to their natural bigness, and by that means they become generally very small. Nieuhof also mentions how the women are brought up to stay indoors and kept out of men?s sight. However the women in the illustrations are clearly outside and in the company of men. Nearly all aspects of life, from education, birthdays, marriage, dress, death and burial (including the practice of feng shui) are discussed, as well as class differences, which mentions mentioning beggars and entertainers as well as scholars and doctors. Chinese medicine and science are talked about and compared with European medicine, though no mention of acupuncture is found. Nieuhof also remarks on the frequent drinking of cha (tea) and the different ways of preparing it. The nature of the Chinese language, and the origin of characters are something that was highly debated in Europe in the seventeenth century. Kircher proposed that they originated from Egyptian hieroglyphs. One illustration depicts what was believed to have been earlier forms of the characters, this follows from the belief that all characters were originally pictographic in nature. The end of the second half of the book focuses on the history of China, beginning with early creation myths and going up to the present invasion by the Manchu. This was the first full account of Chinese history and drew heavily on Chinese historical sources. The engravings in Nieuhof's original Dutch edition were based on illustrations done by artists in China and contained around 150 illustrations. Ogilby had many of them copied for his English translation, although he included around a third fewer pictures. The titles of the illustrations were changed into English and the artists, such as Wenceslaus Hollar, who did the copying, added their own signatures in place of the original artists?. This was standard practice for the time.There are also around twenty-five illustrations in Ogilby's that were not included in the Dutch editions such as the Manchu lady. Some of these illustrations were sourced from the works of Athanasius Kircher.?

        Christ's Certain and Sudden Appearance to Judgment [Signed in Ink by Thomas Vincent at the end of Vincent's preface "To The Citizens of London"]. By Thomas Vincent, Sometime Minister of Maudlins Milk=Street, London.

      London, Printed for George Calvert and Samuel Sprint. 1669 - The Third Edition. Small Octavo. 6 unnumbered pages (incl. Titlepage), 264 pages [collation complete]. 19th century Hardcover. Front board cleanly detached. Inkstain to titlepage. Tears without loss of text to pages 1 - 4, small damage to outer margin of text on page 59/60. Name of female preowner verso titlepage (dated April 1695). Extremely scarce and highly unusual in a signed edition. Thomas Vincent (May 1634 – 15 October 1678) was an English Puritan minister and author. He is referenced as a main character featured in "The Living," by Anthony Clarvoe, a play about 1665 plague London. Thomas Vincent, the second son of John Vincent and elder brother of Nathaniel Vincent (both also prominent ministers), was born at Hertford in May 1634. After passing through Westminster School, and Felsted grammar school in Essex, he entered as a student at Christ Church, Oxford, in 1648, matriculated 27 February 1651, and graduated B.A. 16 March 1652, M.A. 1 June 1654, when he was chosen catechist. Leaving the university, he became chaplain to Robert Sidney, 2nd Earl of Leicester. In 1656 he was incorporated at Cambridge. He was soon put into the sequestered rectory of St. Mary Magdalene, Milk Street, London (he was probably ordained by the sixth London classis), and held it till the Uniformity Act of 1662 ejected him. He retired to Hoxton, where he preached privately, and at the same time assisted Thomas Doolittle [nonconformist minister] in his school at Bunhill Fields. During 1665, the year of the Great Plague of London, he preached constantly in parish churches. His account of the plague in God's Terrible Voice in the City by Plague and Fire, 1667, is graphic; seven in his own household died as a result of the plague. Subsequently he gathered a large congregation at Hoxton, apparently in a wooden meeting-house, of which for a time he was dispossessed. He was among the signers of the 1673 Puritan Preface to the Scots Metrical Psalter. He did not escape imprisonment for his nonconformity. He died on 15 October 1678, and was buried (27 October) in the churchyard of St Giles-without-Cripplegate. His funeral sermon was preached by Samuel Slater. (Wikipedia)

        VOC overwinning op Celebes - Romeyn de Hooghe, 1669.

      ?Victorien der Nederl. Ge.oct. O. Compagn. op het Koninkryck van Macasser door den Ed. Heer C. Speelman?. Ets vervaardigd door Romeyn de Hooghe in 1669, afm. 40,3 x 55,4 cm.Sinds 1667 was de VOC gevestigd in koninkrijk Makassar op Zuid-Celebes, het vormde het ?slot op de deur? voor de oostelijker gelegen specerij eilanden: de Molukken, Ambon en Banda. De VOC had er in de eerste helft van de 17de eeuw monopolies op de uitvoer van muskaatnoten, foelie en kruidnagelen. Makassar werd door de bij deze handel uitgeschakelde Europese en Aziatische concurrenten gebruikt om ?smokkel? in specerijen te bedrijven. Omdat de vorsten van Makassar dit toelieten, zich niets aantrokken van de monopolies van de VOC en in deze een koers van ?vrijhandel? voorstonden, was het tussen de VOC en Makassar v??r 1667 al regelmatig tot ernstige gewapende conflicten gekomen, zowel op Celebes zelf als in Ambon.In de oorlog van 1666 tot 1669 lukte het admiraal Cornelis Speelman (1628-1684) met behulp van Arung Palakka, een vorst uit het naburige Bone, het verzet van Makassar te breken. ?Met slechts 600 man Europeesche militairen, die hevig door ziekten werden geteisterd, heeft hij drie jaren den strijd tegen de fanatieke Makassaren, ?de Haentjens van het Oosten?, volgehouden en ten slotte de overwinning behaald, die ook in het vaderland groot opzien baarde en Vondel tot een lofdicht dwong.?De ets toont in vogelvlucht het landschap van Makassar met de gevechten die daar door Speelman namens de VOC zijn gevoerd. Bovenaan portretten van Speelman en van Radja Palakka. Ook zien we Mercurius en Mars, de goden van de handel en van oorlog. Onder de voorstelling een tekst met een chronologische beschrijving van het verloop van de gebeurtenissen en een vers van Vondel en de legenda.In 1667 droeg het vorstendom Makassar het fort Udjungpandang aan de VOC over, dat tot Fort Rotterdam werd omgedoopt.

        Paskaarte om Achter Yrlandt om te Zeylen van Hitlant tot aen Heijbat

      Jacques & Gasper Anthoine, Amsterdam 1669 - Sea chart. Uncolored copperplate engraving. Image measures 19 7/8" x 22 3/4" This handsome sea chart by Pieter Goos depicts Ireland in its entirety, with the north oriented to the right. The chart also extends to parts of Scotland, England, and France. Also prominently featured are rhumb lines, scales, embellished tall ships, an elegant cartouche, and the harp crest for Ireland and the lion crest for Scotland. This map was published in Goos' "De Zee-Atlas Ofte Water-Weereld" and remains in its original uncolored state, which allows Goos' intricate line work to shine. It is in good condition with some foxing, soiling, and off-setting. Minor chips along border. Bottom of the center seam is separated. Pieter Goos (1616-1675) was a Dutch cartographer, engraver, publisher, printer, and print-seller based in Amsterdam. He belonged to a noted family of cartographers, headed by his father Abraham, who prepared plates for many maps published in the important atlases of the time. His pilot guide, the "Zee-Spiegel," provided some of the first charts of newly explored regions in the West Indies and Western Africa, and his "Zee-Atlas" is considered one of the best sea atlases of its time. This map is a classic example of Goos' high quality, visually appealing sea charts.

        Paskaerte van’t Weftelyckste der Middelandsche Zee

      Amsterdam 1669 - Carta nautica della parte occidentale del Mediterraneo, che comprende la penisola. Figlio del cartografo ed incisore Abraham Goos, Pieter, riprese ed ingrandì l’attività del padre e divenne uno degli incisori più famosi di carte nautiche in attività ad Amsterdam durante la metà del XVII secolo. C osì come Colom, Doncker e Jacobsz, anche Goos pubblicò un atlante nautico, lo Zee-Spiegel, basandolo sulle lastre ottenute da Jacobsz. Questo atlante è stato poi ristampato in numerose edizioni e in diverse lingue, con titoli molto conosciuti all’epoca. Oltre a pubblicare il suo Zee-Spiegel nelle classiche I e II parte (Europa e Coste atlantiche) e parte III (Mediterraneo), diede inizio ad una nuova consuetudine, pubblicando le parti IV e V, relative a carte e indicazioni marinare per le coste delle Indie Occidentali e dell’Africa Occidentale. Incisione in rame, coloritura coeva dei contorni, lievi abrasioni e ossidazioni, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. Sea chart of the western part of the Mediterranean Sea, including the peninsula. Pieter was the son of Abraham Goos, cartographer and engraver; he enlarged his father’s business and became one of the most famous engraver of sea charts in Amsterdam of the XVII century. Like Colom, Doncker and Jacobsz, he published a sea atlas, the Zee-Spiegel, deriving his work from the plates he was given by Jacobsz. The atlas has been then reissued in different editions and languages, and it was very famous among its contemporaries. Apart from publishing his Zee-Spiegel in the classical part I and II (Europe and Atlantic Coasts) and III (Mediterranean), he started a new tradition, publishing also parts IV and V, depicting routes for West Indies and West Africa. Copperplate, contemporary colour on the outlines, small abrasions, in general in good condition. Koeman IV, Goos 33-39 Dimensioni 520 400mm

      - Eight folding engraved plates. 11 p.l., 198 pp., 6 leaves. 4to, cont. panelled calf (foot of one spine & one corner worn, upper joints cracking at foot). Oxford: Printed by H. Hall for R. Davis, 1669. [bound with]: -. A Continuation of New Experiments Physico-Mechanical, Touching the Spring and Weight of the Air, and their effects. The Second Part? Five folding engraved plates. Title within ruled border. 10 p.l., 198 pp., 3 leaves. 4to. London: Printed by M. Flesher for R. Davis, 1682. [with]: -. New Experiments Physico-Mechanical, touching the Air? Two engraved plates (one folding). Titles within ruled borders. 8 p.l., 204 pp.; 6 p.l., 118 pp, one blank leaf; 4 p.l., 102 pp., one leaf. Three parts in one vol. 4to. London: Printed by M. Flesher for R. Davis, 1682. I. First edition. After the Spring and Weight of the Air, Boyle continued to devise experiments on air. In this first continuation, he describes the second English air-pump, constructed like the first by himself and Robert Hooke. He investigated sound, magnetic force and frictional heat in a vacuum; he also confirmed the results of Pascal's famous experiment on the Puy-de-Dôme. II. First edition in English, translated from Latin. The first description of the double air-pump, the third air-pump in England, devised and constructed by Denis Papin, who had brought it with him from France. It had the great advantage of two barrels so arranged that, as the air became exhausted, the resistance offered to the ascent of one piston was nearly balanced by the force with which it compelled the other to descend. It is clear from this book that Boyle and Papin worked together for almost four years. III. Third edition of Boyle's book on his original experiments on air, his first scientific work and the one on which his fame rests. This edition, like the second, includes his controversial tracts against Linus and Hobbes, the former provoking an attack to which Boyle wrote a defense that contained "Boyle's law," first published in the second edition. See Horblit 15 and Printing & the Mind of Man 143 for the second edition. Occasional unimportant worming but a very nice set bound in two volumes. Early signature of J. Brandreth of Trinity College, Cambridge on front free endpapers. Neville I, p. 192, has the same combination of works as are present here. ? Fulton 16, 18, & 15. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Nova situatione de pagamenti fiscali de carlini 42 a foco delle Provincie del Regno di Napoli & adohi de Baroni e Feudatarij dal primo di Gennaro 1669 avanti.

      1669. Nova situatione de pagamenti fiscali de carlini 42 a foco delle Provincie del Regno di Napoli & adohi de Baroni e Feudatarij dal primo di Gennaro 1669 avanti. In Napoli, nella Regia Stamperia di Egidio Longo, 1670. In 4to; 2cc.n.nn., pp.467, 1n.n. Stemma di Pietro Antonio de Aragona al frontespizio, capilettera silografati. Pergamena coeva, titolo calligrafato al dorso. La numerazione dei fuochi serviva per identificare le varie famiglie del tempo. Era descritto il capofuoco, l'età, lo stato civile, l'attività lavorativa dei vari componenti del fuoco, l'elenco delle proprietà, e il tipo di dote che avevano le donne sposate. Per ogni fuoco era stabilita una tassa e il numero dei fuochi determinava la tassa complessiva che l'Università, l'attuale Comune, riscuoteva e pagava alle finanze del Regno. Il primo ad ordinare che fosse eseguita la numerazione dei fuochi fu Alfonso I d'Aragona nel 1443 e inizialmente fu effettuata con periodicità triennale per poi divenire quindicennale dal 1507 in considerazione delle spese notevoli che comportava; nel Seicento se ne ebbero una nel 1648 e una nel 1669. Sono riportate tutte le terre, le province, i feudi e i loro proprietari, le diocesi, le arcidiocesi. Terra di Lavoro, Principato Citra e Ultra, Capitanata, Basilicata, Terra di Bari, Terra d'Otranto, Calabria, Abruzzo, Contado di Molise. Idamaria Fusco, Il Regno di Napoli nella seconda metà del Seicento: il dibattito sulla numerazione dei fuochi: "Nel Regno di Napoli di Età moderna la numerazione dei fuochi rappresenta la principale fonte in grado di fornire una visione complessiva della realtà demografica meridionale, pur presentando numerosi limiti legati alla sua natura di fonte fiscale. In particolare, lo scoppio di una gravissima epidemia di peste tra il 1656 e il 1658 metterà in crisi l'intero sistema fiscale, basato su una numerazione, quella del 1648, già ampiamente criticata dagli stessi contemporanei. Da qui l'ampio dibattito, finora poco noto, che porterà all'adozione di vari rimedi provvisori e alla pubblicazione finale della successiva numerazione del 1669."

        Contemporary or Early Copy of his Deed, with Copy signature "Rob: Boyle" in another hand, (Hon. Robert, 1627-1691, Scientist and Philosopher]

      1669 - with transcription, recovering to himself his trust concerning his estate at Buttevant, County Cork, the trustees being his brother Richard, (1612-1698, 2nd Earl of Cork, 1645), their relation Michael Boyle, (1609 or 1610-1702, Lord Chancellor of Ireland and Archbishop of Dublin, later Armagh), Richard Newman of Westminster, and John Nicholls of "St James neere Shafton" [sic, Shaston, Shaftesbury in Dorset]. The trustees had had a lease, dated 13th December 1656, for 500 years at a peppercorn rent, of "the Castle Mannor Towne Lands and Tenements of Buttevant and of all that my Moyety of Rice his Lands in the Towne, and Fields of Buttevant, and of other my hereditaments in the County of Corke", and by now paying sixpence to Richard Newman, as allowed by the original deed, Robert Boyle revokes the trust and its provisions, 1 side large folio, title on verso, no place, the original 21st July two panels of verso dusty where formerly folded without loss Written when Robert Boyle was about to make new provisions for this estate. His interest in Buttevant went back to 1637. The estate was mortgaged that year to Robert and to Robert's father Sir Richard, (c. 1574-1645, 'the Great Earl of Cork'), by the latter's son-in-law, David Barry (1605-1642, 1st Earl of Barrymore, 1628), whose family had possessed it from medieval times. The following year it was made over to Robert. In 1653 Robert Boyle had leased Buttevant to Colonel Agmondisham Muschamp for 31 years. At the date of this document the latter's son Denny Muschamp, (c. 1637-1699, secretary and son-in-law to Primate Boyle), had just agreed a 99-year lease (3rd July 1669, see the de Vesci papers in the National Library of Ireland, p. 55 of the catalogue) and was negotiating a way of purchasing the estate by instalments. Denny finally bought the fee simple in 1693 from Boyle's trustees, who had been empowered in a similar way to the trust now revoked. All his life Robert Boyle took a deep interest in Ireland, using the wealth from his estates to promote schemes for education, medicine, and the scriptures in Irish. The greatest experimental scientist of his age, it was at his home at Stalbridge, 12 miles from Shaftesbury, that he set up his first laboratory in 1649.
