LACERDA, Fernando Correa de, writing under the pseudonym Leandro Dorea Caceres e Faria].
Lisbon, Miguel Manescal, 1669. - 4°, contemporary mottled calf, spine richly gilt, slight worming to upper joint, somewhat worn. Woodcut headpieces and initials. Some light browning. Minor marginal worming (mostly repaired) without loss. 267 pp. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION, variant issue, without the licenses printed on the verso of LL2.In 1662 the irresponsible D. Afonso VI took the throne of Portugal, ousting his mother D. Luisa de Gusmão, who had ruled as regent since D. João IV's death in 1656. In November 1667, however, D. Afonso was imprisoned by his brother D. Pedro, who was named Prince Regent by the Cortes some months later and remained regent until his brother finally died (still under lock and key) in 1683. Pedro also, after a hasty annulment, married the French princess who had been D. Afonso's wife. To justify D. Pedro's ascension, Corrêa de Lacerda gives all the juicy gossip about D. Afonso's life, including the fever that left him partially paralyzed at age 3, his scandalous behavior throughout his adolescence and adulthood (consorting with prostitutes, breaking windows, attending dogfights), and his impotence-a serious problem to the new Bragança dynasty-which was used to justify the nullification of D. Afonso's marriage.Corrêa de Lacerda (b. Tojal, diocese of Vizeu, 1628; d. 1685), who had been one of D. Pedro II's tutors, was named Bishop of Porto by D. Pedro in 1673, and became a royal advisor as well.*** Arouca L6 (describing a copy with the licences on the final unnumbered verso of p. 267, and stating that there is a variant issue with this page blank). … [Click Below for Full Description]

Liten reva i övre yttre hörnet på s. 141. Spår av lack på främre pärmens insida. Bra ex. med Carl Törnskiöldhs namnteckning på titelbladet och Jonas Berggrens namnteckning daterad 1796 på försättsbladet. Ett extra dedikationsblad med en dikt av Heinsius till Karl XI saknas.. Collijn 462. Utgiven av Johannes Schefferus. Texten utgavs första gången av Bureus 1634 och trycktes om 1650. Frontespisen graverades av Dionysius Padtbrugge efter förlaga av David Klöcker Ehrenstrahl, och föreligger här i varianten utan ramverk. Den föreställer den unge Karl XI styrande Sveriges skepp. Det manuskript Bureus använt för sin utgåva var inte längre tillgängligt, och Schefferus fick utgå från den tryckta texten till denna utgåva med latinsk parallelltext, dock inte utan att införa ett flertal förbättringar. Arbetet är en uppfostringslära för en ung kung skriven under svensk medeltid. Den kan vara författad för Magnus Eriksson ca 1330. Författaren är okänd, men troligen är verket en bearbetning av den italienske 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 my … [Click Below for Full Description]

Prostat apud Cornelium Bee in vico Little Britain. Anno Domini MDCLXIX [1669]. First Edition. Contact for anterior collation. In "In Genesin", 1,247 pp. "In "I Samuelis" (Pars Posterior), 1,027 pp. Elephant Folio, approx 15.75" tall. Full leather with six spine ribs, decorative tooled panels at covers. Very massive volume barely fits on a large-format scanner (see scans); too heavy for spine scan. Chip at spine top, roughening at spine bottom, general moderate scuffing. Some creasing and very faint waterstaining to initial few leaves. Minimal foxing. Hinges relatively strong. Overall, Very Good. The first volume of Matthew Poole's opus, a life work in which he surveyed and encapsulated a wide variety of religious writings on both the Old and New Testaments. Poole, born in York in 1624, graduated from Emmanuel College in Cambridge in 1645, and succeeded Anthony Tuckney at St. Michael-le-Querne church, but would shortly thereafter leave the pastorate; as a strict Presbyterian, he resigned his living rather than conform to the Act of Uniformity. William Lloyd (later Bishop of Worcester) suggested that Poole then undertake his life's masterwork, the Synopsis. Viewed as a usable summary of then-extant religious writings from (almost] every source imaginable, the Synopsis is, in fact, an exercise in conciseness, as difficult as that may be to imagine of a set of five mammoth elephant folio volumes [of which this is … [Click Below for Full Description]

1669. Paris, C. Lambin, 1669. 4to. (22 x 16cm). pp. (8), 152, with 1 engraved portrait. Contemporary calf, covers with large floral gilt centrepiece within broad gilt borders, richly floral gilt spine with 5 raised bands and gilt lettering (corners slightly rubbed). Sinkankas 593; Duveen 71. Second, enlarged edition (the first appeared in 1661) of this rare work on precious stones and pearls found in the East- and West-Indies, written by a 'Marchand Orphevre' in Paris. Both editions are dedicated to 'a Mademoiselle' (i.e. Anne Marie Louise d'Orleans) with her engraved portrait, which is more delicately executed (by N. Larnessin) in the above edition. Moreover the second edition is more interesting and wanted because of the additional chapters: Du prix des Diamans, Du prix des Perles, Contre les chercheurs de la pierre philosophale & souffleurs d'Arquemie, Raisons contre les cherchevrs de la Pierre Philosophale & souffleurs d'Alquemie. Et ne sera pas mal a propos de parler de Nicolas Flamel sur ce sujet. A large chapter is devoted to pearls and pearl fishing. The Persian Gulf is given as one of the main locations of pearl fishing 'Dans le Golfe Persique, principalement aux environs de l'Isle d'Ormus' (pages 65-90). Several locations are mentioned in the Gulf. "Very early, and important treatise on gemstones, gold & silver, but with by far more space devoted to gemstones.

1669. London, typis Tho. Roycroft, 1669. 2 parts (bound in one). 8vo (272 x 115mm). pp. (24), 1-347, (11), 351-499, (5). Contemporary blind boards, spine with old lettering. First edition and the first work published by this famous Scottish botanist. The first part is a catalogue of plants growing in the Duc d'Orleans' botanical garden at Blois. "He was, among other things, the superintendent of the gardens at Blois for the Duc d'Orleans, and became the first Professor of Botany at Oxford in 1669. Later he was employed by Charles II of England to help with the laying out of St.James Park, and held the titles of Royal Physician and Royal Botanist" (Hunt 313). The catalogue consists of an alphabetical list of the Royal garden at Blois and was for a large part compiled by Abel Brunyer, Morison's colleague. The botanical garden created by Gaston d'Orleans at Blois was the most important French botanical garden in the 17th century. Nicolas Robert and Daniel Rabel were commissioned by the Duc d'Orleans to paint its plants. These were the first 'velins' of the great 'Collections des velins', now in the Paris Natural History Museum. The second part, 'Hallucinationes', is a list of mistakes made by Gaspard Bauhin in his 'Pinax' 1623, with Morison's corrections, followed by critisism ('Animadversiones') of Jean Bauhin's 'Historia plantarum universalis' (1650, 1651). "The 'Praeludia' concludes with a dialogue between the author, as Botanographus Regius, and a Fellow of the Royal Society, on the classification of plants. Morison alludes in this dialogue, in a very critical manner, to a … [Click Below for Full Description]

Plein Veau d'époque, dos à nerfs orné. Ensemble frotté. La coiffe supérieure est manquante au 2/3, un coin ne porte plus de cuir, une partie des bordures est dépourvue de cuir, quelques manques à l'endroit des nerfs. Gabriel Naudé (1600-1653) est né à Paris. Il était médecin mais davantage philosophe car il avait étudié également la littérature et la philosophie, de tous ses livres l'apologie est le seul qui nous soit resté. Il fut successivement attaché au cardinal Barberin, au cardinal Mazarin (c'est lui qui se chargera de collecter les ouvrages de la bibliothèque de Mazarin), au cardinal Richelieu puis à la reine Christine, comme bibliothécaire également, à part le fameux 'Advis pour dresser une bibliothèque'. C'est un héritier de l'humanisme qui prône le retour à un rationalisme strict, cet ouvrage en est l'application, accréditant qu'il faut exercer son jugement et étudier les causes et les effets avant que de condamner. On trouve de nombreux renseignement précieux sur les accusations et les pratiques de nombreux hommes, Gallien, Raymond Lulle, Albertus Magnus, saint Thomas d'Aquin, en même temps qu'une défense des accusations qui ont été portés contre ces hommes, Naudé démonte les croyances sur les démons, la pierre philosophale et ce qu'elles recouvrent. - chez Jacques Cotin, A Paris _1669, in 12 (14,4x8,5cm), (24) 502pp., Un Vol. relié. - Un … [Click Below for Full Description]
