        Epitome commentariorum Moysis Armeni, de origine & regibus Armenorum et Pathorum, item series principum Iberiæ et Georgiæ, cum notis & observationibus. Accessit ejusdem epistola ad plur. reverend. & celeberrim. Doct. Ericum Benzelium de præsenti statu quarundam gentium orientalium. Stockholm, J. L. Horrn, 1723.

      4to. Pp. (iv), 108. Contemporary half calf, renewed paper covered boards, spien rubbed, new title label on spine. First edition. Comprises two parts, of which the first titled "Breve comment. de origine nationis Armenorum" is based on the writings of Movses Khoernatzi, known as the father of Armenian literature and believed to have lived in the 5th century. The second part "Series regum sive principum" is mainly based on Georgian manuscripts. Henrich Brenner (1669-1732), a Swedish philosopher and diplomat accompanied the Swedish envoy, Ludvig Fabricius, to Persia in 1697. The aim of the embassy was to establish trade relations between Persia and Sweden. Three years later on Brenner's return journey he was imprisoned in Russia until 1721. Due to the war between Charles XII and Peter I, the czar suspected that Brenner's mission might be connected with political secrets and therefore had Brenner arrested at Moscow. He was imprisoned for 21 years until the conclusion of the peace of Nystad. During his journey and the long imprisonment in Russia he had opportunity to study the languages and the cultures of Armenia, Dagestan, Georgia and Circassia. Brenner's extensive commentary of the "Epitome com. Moysis Armeni" indicates his broad knowledge of classical and oriental literature. At end a letter by Erik Benzelius, Archbishop in Uppsala at the time. Scarce. Zenker, BO ii, 2289. Svenskt Biografiskt Lexicon, 6

        TER TRIA: OR THE DOCTRINE OF THE THREE SACRED PERSONS, FATHER, SON, & SPIRIT

      London: [s.n.], 1669. Second edition n. This curious volume holds two special sources of pleasure: the text, which is a poem by an Irish clergyman who backed Cromwell, and a binding that one could easily mistake for a 17th century survival. The wonderfully-named Faithful Teate (ca. 1627-65/66) was born in County Cavan to a staunch Puritan family (his clergyman father was also Faithful and, one presumes, faithful). The younger Faithful followed in his father's ecclesiastical footsteps, eventually receiving a benefice in Sudbury, Suffolk, where he composed "Ter Tria." Critics now regard his verse, here in the style of the metaphysical poets, as being on par with Herbert; some, like Angelina Lynch, have even gone so far to label his work a "neglected masterpiece." Poetizing must have run in the blood, as Faithful's son Nahum Tate was appointed poet laureate of England in 1692. Our replica binding is remarkable, highlighting technical virtuosity, aggressively delicate touch, and notably high standards of craft and materials. Dusel's modern interpretations of classic binding styles impress with their fidelity, and they often innocently deceive all but the most sophisticated collector. When Bernard Middleton, the dean of British book conservators, saw examples of Dusel's work in California, he is reported to have said he was going to go away and shoot himself. Dusel's bindings are not signed, but this is certainly his work (the volume was formerly in the inventory of the dealer who is one of the binder's chief clients). This is not a common book: we could trace only three copies at auction since 1975.. 145 x 90 mm. (5 3/4 x 3 1/2"). 4 p.l., 190 pp. Second edition. CONVINCING RETROSPECTIVE BLACK MOROCCO, EXUBERANTLY GILT, BY PHILIP DUSEL, covers with floral roll border and central panel with animated design of flowers and drawer handle tools in period style, raised bands, spine gilt in compartments with floral centerpieces, gilt titling, turn-ins with floral gilt roll, all edges gilt. Wing T-618. The headline word on both sides of perhaps thirty leaves cut into, not infrequent minor foxing, but a perfectly acceptable copy internally, with no fatal defects, and with the very decorative retrospective binding unworn. This curious volume holds two special sources of pleasure: the text, which is a poem by an Irish clergyman who backed Cromwell, and a binding that one could easily mistake for a 17th century survival. The wonderfully-named Faithful Teate (ca. 1627-65/66) was born in County Cavan to a staunch Puritan family (his clergyman father was also Faithful and, one presumes, faithful).

        Collection of manuscript documents in Spanish on paper relating to his death and estate.

      Talavera Folio, 100 ff.. 1669–79 Suárez de Toledo seems to have been a serious collector of oil portraits — including one of Hernando Cortés and one of the Queen of France — as well as of religious art, silver, and other “objets d'art.” The several inventories present in this cahier document his passion, with the other documents further telling the story of the complicated settlement of the estate by the heirs. Written by several notaries so hands are varied. Stitching starting to loosen. A very few leaves with small loss of text to a hungry rodent.

        Observationes Medicae circa Morborum Acutorum Historiam et Curationem.

      FIRST EDITION. A founding work in epidemiology, and Sydenham?s first book. This work includes the most minute account of measles, its differentiation from scarlatina (which he named), an important account of smallpox, and an excellent description of scarlet fever. The book was a result of clinical notes kept between 1669 and 1674, after the Great Plague of London. In the preface, Sydenham set out his ideas for ambitious therapeutic reforms, exemplified in the text with respect to epidemic diseases, paying attention to one particular factor causing seasonal and annual variations. ?Sydenham?s studies in the geography and meteorology of epidemic diseases and the rhythmic periodicity of their recurrences make him, with Hippocrates and Baillou, one of the main founders of epidemiology? (Garrison).G&M 2198, 5075 (scarlet fever), 5407 (smallpox) & 5441.1 (measles).

        HOMER HIS ILIADS [and] HOMER HIS ODYSSES Translated, Adorn'd With Sculpture, and Illustrated with Annotations, by John Ogilby

      London: by James Flesher for the Author, 1669. Bound together as one large volume. The second printings of Ogilby?s translations of both the ILIADS and the ODYSSES. The Iliads with a title-page in red and black, and 43 [of 47] magnificent plates by Hollar, Lampart, and others, engraved head- and tailpieces and initials throughout, without the portraits of Ogilby and Homer. The Odysses with title-page in red and black and 23 engraved plates [without the Ogilby portrait which is a repeat of the portrait in the Iliads or the portrait of Charles II which is very rarely if ever encountered], engraved head- and tailpieces and initials throughout. Royal folio [385x260mm], bound in the original contemporary calf, the covers with double fillet rules at the borders, the spine with raised bands. title, [42], 520. [ii], 358 pp. A rare copy of this magnificently illustrated Homer still retaining its original binding and without repairs. This copy was used throughout the centuries and has occasional closed tears or others with some loss, a title-age detached and present, there is some staining here and there typical to books that have been well used over the centuries. The binding has wear and some chipping or loss to the extremities at the spine tips, edges and corners. A copy highly unusual in that it has no repairs or re-backing and a reasonable copy including both of these great books, retaining virtually all of their original engraved illustrations and with rather typical loss to the textblock and the expected faults. HIGHLY IMPORTANT PRINTINGS IN ENGLISH OF TWO GREAT BOOKS OF THE ANCIENT WORLD. EXTENSIVELY ILLUSTRATED WITH ORIGINAL ENGRAVINGS. Ogilby's illustrated books and maps are perfect examples of the English baroque taste. It was Ogilby's illustrated edition of the ILIAD that first captured Pope's imagination as a schoolboy and would have led ultimately to his own celebrated translation of Homer. Johnson's tells how Pope was 'first regularly initiated in poetry by the perusal of Ogilby's HOMER, and Sandys's OVID,' and that as a schoolboy 'he formed a kind of play from Ogilby's ILIAD, with some verses of his own intermixed, which he persuaded his school-fellows to act, with the addition of his master's gardener, who personated Ajax' (quoted in the catalogue to the Garden Sale, Sotheby's New York, November 1989). The unsinkable John Ogilby, 1600-1676, never let adversity get the best of him. After surviving the loss of all his worldly possessions in Dublin in 1641 during the civil war, nearly being blown up and shipwrecked, he settled in London where he published books. Although the great fire of 1666 destroyed both his house and his book stock, it could not destroy his determination. Ogilby rebuilt his house and set up a large printing establishment. Ogilby has been referred to as "the English De Bry", as his works are similar in their objects, compilations and mode of illustration.

        Amerique Septentrionale

      Paris: Chez Pierre Mariette, 1669. Copper-engraved map, in very good condition. The most important French map of North America of its generation, produced by the country's most esteemed family of cartographers This very influential map was the official successor to Nicolas Sanson's 1650 map of North America. When Nicolas Sanson, regarded as the father of the renaissance of cartography under Louis XIV, died in July, 1667, he left his flourishing business in the care of his eldest son Guillaume. The younger Sanson continued his father's partnership with the Mariette family, who were prominent Parisian printers. Guillame was determined to publish a new, updated edition of his father's Cartes Generales de toutes parties du Monde, the first French general atlas, originally published in 1657. The map of North America that appeared in the atlas, although masterful, was now considered to be geographically outdated. The present map, which appeared in the second edition of the atlas, featured updated toponymy, and is geographically based on Nicolas Sanson's wall map of 1666 (of which only two copies survive). While California is shown to be an island, in line with popular perception, unlike the map from 1650, it no longer attempts to build a geographical mythology in the place of the Pacific Northwest, which was then totally unknown. Appropriately the magnificent baroque title cartouche, which features swags and ribbons held aloft by putti, has been placed to fill this enigmatic space. Cartographically the map appears to be based on Sanson's maps of "Le Canada, ou Nouvelle France" and "Le Nouveau Mexique, et La Floride." Lake Erie is shown in a recognizable form and the entire Great Lakes network is shown in greater detail than his father's map, although the western lakes are still open-ended. On the East coast, Long Island is shown and the shape of the Outer Banks is improved. Several Indian tribes are identified in New Mexico where the R. del Norte (Rio Grande) mistakenly flows from an interior lake and empties into the Mar Vermeio ou Mer Rouge (Gulf of California). Iceland now appears in the Atlantic, as well as a bit of Britain. The map proved to be highly successful, and was sourced on numerous occasions by other mapmakers. The present copy is an example of Burden's first state of the map; a second state would be issued in 1690.

Warmholtz Bibliotheca historica Sueo-Gothica 2698, Almqvist Johann Kankel 6, Fiske Icelandic collection s. 539 och Afzelius Svenska skrifter rörande Island s. 48 för det andra arbetet. Warmholtz Bibliotheca historica Sueo-Gothica 4826 och Åhlén & Åhlén Censur och tryckfrihet 16.52 för det avslutande arbetet. Exemplar av det första arbetet med den ovanliga extra hyllningsdikten av N. Heinsius. Frontespisen graverades av Dionysius Padt Brugge efter förlaga av David Klöcker Ehrenstrahl. Den föreställer den unga Karl XI styrande skeppet Sverige. Texten utgavs första gången av J. T. Bureus 1634 och trycktes om 1650. Det manuskript Bureus använt för sin utgåva var inte längre tillgängligt, så Schefferus fick utgå ifrån den tryckta texten till Bureus utgåva och förse den med latinsk parallelltext, dock inte utan att införa ett flertal förbättringar. Arbetet är en uppfostringslära för en ung kung skriven under svensk medeltid. Det kan vara författad för Magnus Eriksson ca 1330. Författaren är okänd, men troligen är verket en bearbetning av den italienska teologen och författaren Colonnas "De regimine principum" som var avsedd för Filip den sköne av Frankrike. Även om texten bygger på utländska förlagor är den både språkligt och innehållsmässigt en mycket lyckad och självständigt hållen bearbetning. Handskriften kom antagligen från Vadstena kloster. Schefferus edition utfördes på uppdrag av Magnus Gabriel De la Gardie som också bekostade tryckningen. Rättelselappen i det andra arbetet nämns inte i den bibliografiska litteraturen, men finns i minst två olika sättningar, varav denna har stavningen "affattat". Översatt och utgiven av Jonas Rugman. Med förord av Daniel Gyldenstolpe och "Hugonis Grotij företal på göthernes/ wänders och longobarders historia" som upptar över 100 sidor. Detta är den första tryckta utgåvan av Snorre Sturlassons "Heimskringla". De sista arbetet inleds med en tryckt dedikation till Karl XI och avslutas med en hyllningstext till Hyltenius som författats av Christian Ravius. Nicolaus Hyltenius (1635-1702) adlades Silverskiöld 1686. Han läste i skolan på Visingsö och studerade sedan vid Uppsala universitet. Han disputerade 1658 över Hugo Grotius men blev aldrig promoverad, utan "utförde i stället en oration 13 febr 1661 över den året innan avlidne Karl X Gustav, på årsdagen av kungens död. För att ha framgång måste en student skaffa sig mäktiga beskyddare, s k patroner, och S önskade väcka uppmärksamhet i kungahuset och hos den ledande i Karl XI:s förmyndarregering, Magnus Gabriel de la Gardie (bd 10), som var universitetets kansler. S kom dock i strid med konsistoriet genom sin dristighet att dedicera orationen till Karl XI och utan tillåtelse påbörja dess tryckning. S vädjade till kanslern, som ansåg att S skulle få trycka sitt tal utan dedikation. Märkligt nog skedde tryckningen trots detta med dedikation" skriver "Svenskt biografiskt lexikon". 1667 utnämndes han till professor i svensk och dansk rätt vid Lunds nya universitet. Sannolikt är det kyrkoherden i Rättvik Olof Kumblæus (1663-1731) som skrivit sitt namn i boken. Lars Petter Hülphers (1746-1800) var bror till den mer kände Abraham. Han var handlare och rådman i Västerås. Boksamlingen såldes troligen efter en skriven förteckning 1808

        Amerique Septentrionale

      Paris: Chez Pierre Mariette, 1669. Copper-engraved map, period hand-colouring in outline. A lovely, rich impression of the first state of among the most important French maps of North America of the second half of the 17th century, produced by the country's most esteemed family of cartographers. This very influential map was the official successor to Nicolas Sanson's 1650 map of North America. When Nicolas Sanson, regarded as the father of the renaissance of cartography under Louis XIV, died in July, 1667, he left his flourishing business in the care of his eldest son Guillaume. The younger Sanson continued his father's partnership with the Mariette family, who were prominent Parisian printers. Guillame was determined to publish a new, updated edition of his father's Cartes Generales de toutes parties du Monde, the first French general atlas, originally published in 1657. The map of North America that appeared in the atlas, although masterful, was now considered to be geographically outdated. The present map, which appeared in the second edition of the atlas, featured updated toponymy, and is geographically based on Nicolas Sanson's wall map of 1666 (of which only two copies survive). While California is shown to be an island, in line with popular perception, unlike the map from 1650, it no longer attempts to build a geographical mythology in the place of the Pacific Northwest, which was then totally unknown. Appropriately the magnificent baroque title cartouche, which features swags and ribbons held aloft by putti, has been placed to fill this enigmatic space. Cartographically the map appears to be based on Sanson's maps of "Le Canada, ou Nouvelle France" and "Le Nouveau Mexique, et La Floride." Lake Erie is shown in a recognizable form and the entire Great Lakes network is shown in greater detail than his father's map, although the western lakes are still open-ended. On the East coast, Long Island is shown and the shape of the Outer Banks is improved. Several Indian tribes are identified in New Mexico where the R. del Norte (Rio Grande) mistakenly flows from an interior lake and empties into the Mar Vermeio ou Mer Rouge (Gulf of California). Iceland now appears in the Atlantic, as well as a bit of Britain. The map proved to be highly successful, and was sourced on numerous occasions by other mapmakers. The present copy is an example of Burden's first state of the map; a second state would be issued in 1690.

Lieuwe van Aitzema, 1600 - 1669, was een Nederlands diplomaat en geschiedschrijver. Doordat Van Aitzema een groot aantal officiële documenten opnam in zijn werken en ze van commentaar voorzag, zijn deze nog steeds van groot belang voor hedendaagse historici. Zijn stijl is door puntigheid en sarcasme intrigerend en meeslepend. Boekblokken wat gebruind.).

        Archiducatus Austriae Superioris Geographica Descriptio facta Anno 1667.,

      (Augsburg, Melchior Küssel, 1669). - Kupferstichkarte von 12 Platten auf Leinwand des 19. Jahrhunderts aufgezogen und auf einem Holzstab des 19. Jahrhunderts montiert. Erste Ausgabe der ersten großen Vischer`schen Landkarte. - Descriptio Austriae S. 126 (Tafel 28). - Georg Matthäus Vischer machte 1666 während eines Aufenthaltes in Andrichsfurt den oberösterreichischen Ständen das Angebot eine Karte des Landes ob der Enns anzufertigen. Im Sommer 1667 begann er mit den Feldarbeiten und der Vermessung, wobei er gleichzeit das Material zu seiner Topographie von Oberösterreioch sammelte. Da er nur wenig Unterstützung der Stände für den Stich der gezeichneten Karte erhielt, betraute er den Augsburger Stecher Melchior Küssel mitdem Kupferstich, der diesen 1669 vollenden konnte. Die Karte im Maßstab von ca. 1 : 150000 zeigt neben dem Gelände auch die Ortschaften in perspektivischer Darstellung, und zwar von Süden aus gesehen. Die vorliegende Karte gilt als die erste autoptisch aufgenommene, großformatige und detaillierte Karte von Oberösterreich und diente einem der universalsten Barockkartographen, dem Venezianer Vincenzo Coronelli (1650-1718) als Vorbild, der die vorliegende Karte 1692 für seinen `Corso Geografico universale` in verkleinertem Format nachgestochen hat. - Neben dem Wappen von Oberösterreich mit dem Herzogshut zeigen die Kartuschen auch noch Ansichten von Gmunden mit dem Traunsee, des Schlosses Kammer mit dem Attersee, des Schlosses Reichenstein und Waxenberg sowie je eine Szene der Salzverarbeitung und der Eisenverhüttung. - Durch die alte Montage und Aufhängung mit den üblichen Gebrauchspuren. Teils kl. Randläusren bzw. etw. knittrig (dadurch minimalste Läsuren). Leicht fleckig oder gebräunt. Sprache: Deutsch Gewicht in Gramm: 0 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Description anatomique d’un Cameleon, d’un Castor, d’un Dromadaire, d’un Ours, et d’une Gazelle

      Paris: Frederic Leonard, 1669. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. 4to (242 x 185 mm). 120pp. Printer?'s woodcut device on title depicting the winged lion of Evangelist Mark and motto, ?"Virtute invidiam vince?" (Virtue overcometh envy) and the legend, ?"Pax tibi marce Evangelista meus.?" 5 engraved folding plates (4 by Sebastien Le Clerc and one by Abraham Bosse) depicting a chameleon on a branch, and a plate with chameleon?'s skeleton and organs in the upper part, on a trompe-l?'oeil sheet; and the same anatomical analysis for the beaver, the camel, the bear and the gazelle, decorative woodcut head- and tail-pieces. Contemporary mottled calf, spine gilt in compartments (plates with some tears along folds, repaired on verso, some light darkening, minor marginal worming at end; light edgewear). From the collection of Charles Philippe Robin (1821-1885), French doctor, anatomist and politician (bibliographical note at foot of title). Other early inscriptions to title referring to the engraver ?"M. LeClerc?" and on rear pastedown to the state of the engravings. First Edition and second publication dealing with the comparative anatomy of the animals the chameleon, the beaver, the camel, the bear and the gazelle. Perrault, scientist and naturalist, was the leader of a team of comparative anatomists, called the ?"Parisians,?" that included Guichard-Joseph Duverney, Jean Pecquet, Moyse Charas and Philippe de la Hire. Their investigations began in June 1667 with a thresher shark and lion from the royal academy and went on to encompass forty-nine vertebrate species. The detailed reports and exact descriptions on these dissections were the first of a long series of anatomical descriptions, which ultimately included those of twenty-five species of mammals, seventeen birds, five reptiles, one amphibian, and one fish. Perrault and the team of ?"Parisians?" prided themselves on several discoveries and in the process debunked many popular myths attached to certain species, such as the legend that salamanders live in fire or that chameleons subsist on air. The scientists also recorded how they obtained their results providing a glimpse of how such anatomical research was conducted in the seventeenth century. The work is illustrated beautifully with five large folding plates by the expert painter, engraver, and writer, Sebastian Leclerc (1637-1714), four of which were engraved by Leclerc, and one by the watercolor painter, writer and printmaker, Abraham Bosse (c. 1604-1676). Very fine work; the large folding plates remain fresh and intact. No such detailed and exact descriptions and illustrations had been published before. It is hard to measure another such important addition to the anatomical study of animals.

        Opera nova piacevole e da ridere di un villano lavoratore nominato Grillo, il quale volse diventar Medico. Historia bellissima in ottava rima, novamente ristampata, e ricorretta & di belle figure adornata.

      - In Venetia, et in Bassano, Per Gio. Antonio Remondin. Con licenza de' Superiori, s.d. (ma 1669). In-12 (141x95), cc. nn. 24. Con 8 vignette sceniche di cui 1 ripetuta. Brossura muta coeva. Elegante scatola contenitiva in marocchino rosso. Un limitato difetto della carta interessante la vignetta riprodotta a carta A12-r. Bell'esemplare. Raro. Rarissimo esemplare di queste novellette in versi di centoquarantasette sgangherate ottave, forse il titolo più fortunato della librettistica da fiera italiana di ogni tempo. Grillo, medico «al contrario», è il perfetto eroe dell'ignoranza scientifica: può guarire proprio poiché non fa uso dei tradizionali mezzi di diagnosi né delle medicine. Satira dell'ignoranza villana, la sua vicenda finisce col tradursi perciò in satira della medicina, scienza ignorante e villana. La novella divenne presto un modello e il suo protagonista figura retorica ed epiteto, come nella «Piazza Universale» del Garzoni; si riferì al suo «mondo alla rovescia» la trama della «Fiammella», pastorale di Bartolomeo Rossi, e fu fonte ispirativa del «Médicin malgré lui» di Molière. Bibliografia: Passano, Novellieri italiani, p. 100. STC, 17th cent., 629. Sulla fortuna della novella si veda Vittorio Rossi, Le lettere di Andrea Calmo, Torino, 1888, p. 271 e ss.

        Les merveilles des Indes orientales ou nouveau traitté des pierres precieuses & perles, contenant leur vraye nature, dureté, couleurs & vertus: chacune placée selon son ordre & degré, suivant la cognoissance des marchands orfévres, le tiltre de l'or & de l'argent, avec augmentation à plusieurs chapitres, les raisons contre les chercheurs de la pierre philosophale & souffleurs d'alquemie, et de deux autres chapitres du prix des diamans, & des perles.

      Paris, C. Lambin, (1668-)1669. - 4to. (8), 152 pp. With engr. portrait frontispiece of Anne Marie Louise d'Orleans and numerous pretty woodcut initials and tailpieces. Contemp. richly gilt calf, gilt dentelle central cover decoration showing the Sacred Heart of Jesus, gilt spine on five raised bands (upper spine-end and corners repaired). Marbled pastedowns. Second, enlarged edition of this rare work on precious stones and pearls found in the East and West Indies, written by a Parisian "marchand orphèvre" in Paris and first published in 1661. Both editions are dedicated to "La Grande Mademoiselle" Anne Marie Louise d'Orléans, Duchess of Montpensier and niece of Louis XIII, with her finely engraved portrait, which is here more delicately executed (by Nicolas de Larmessin, in 1664). The large chapter devoted to pearls and pearl fishing cites the Persian Gulf and several specific places there as among the main locations of pearl fishing: "on pesche les perles en divers endroits du monde. Dans le Golfe Persique, principalement aux environs de l'Isle d'Ormus & Bassora: aupres de Baroyn [i.e., Bahrain], Catiffa, Iuffa, Camaron, & autres lieux de ce Golfe [.]" (p. 68). This chapter is here "augmented with an appendix which recounts the history of the Spanish conquest in the New World and additionally gives remarks on pearl fisheries, natural history, and production [.] New chapters comprise Ch. 17, on the pricing of diamonds according to size and quality, and Ch. 18 on pricing of pearls. In tems of substance, this edition [the second one, here offered] is considerably superior to the first; both are rare" (Sinkankas p. 97f.). It is these new, additional chapters in particular for which this second edition is sought after "Du prix des Diamans" and "Du prix des Perles", as well as one entitled "Raisons contre les chercheurs de la Pierre Philosophale & souffleurs d'Alquemie. Et ne sera pas mal à propos de parler de Nicolas Flamel sur ce sujet". - Lower spine-end and corners somewhat bumped, otherwise fine. A good copy in an appealingly decorated contemporary French binding. Sinkankas 593. Duveen 71. Sabin 4957. Brunet VI, 4780. Graesse I, 348. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
