Collinges, John, re: Katharine Courten and Frances Hobart
London: Publisher Not Identified. Condition: Very Good. First printing, 1669. Small 8vo, bound in early 19th century half leather and marbled boards, pp. (16) 303, with full title page and title pages for each treatise. Early handwriting identifying author as John Collinges on the title page of The Excellent Woman (possibly in Collinges' hand), some foxing to outer leaves, age toning to text, binding very good but rubbed. OCLC locates 4 copies, with the copy at Columbia noted as having its second sub- title page signed, but this may refer to printed identification of the author and not a signature. The other three copies in OCLC are at the British Library, the British Library Reference Collections, and the British Library of Political and Economic Science. Wing (2nd ed., 1994), C5329 -- no copies currently on the market and none at auction in past 30 plus years. Collinges (1623-1690) was an English minister, associated with the district of Norwich where he was part of the household of Sir John Hobart for some time. He was an avid controversialist and published a number of tracts, sermons and exigeses. [Attributes: First Edition]

Milton
JOHN MILTON "Paradise Lost" FIRST EDITION 1669 Simmons, 1669. This one of the original 1,200 first edition copies printed in 1667 by the publisher Simmons. Simmons issued the first edition over a few years, adding a different title page from time to time. By the time the 1200 copies of the first run had sold out, seven different variations of the title page has been produced, bearing dates of 1667, 1668 and 1669. There is no known relationship between when a given copy of the TEXT itself was printed, and the title page it bears. Thus, the first printed copy of the 1200 copies could just as easily have a 1669 title page as one dated 1667 or 1668. It was just a matter of what copy the publisher pulled out of the original pile, and attached a title page. In addition, the bibliographer Hugh Amory argued convincingly that the 1668 title page was probably issued earlier than the one bearing the date 1667. In this case the title page bears the full name of the author and the year 1669. In addition, this copy includes the important preliminary matter that Milton added during 1668 after the first copies were issued. These include "The Argument," in which Milton describes the program of each of the ten books, and "The Verse," in which Milton defends his choice of using blank verse rather than rhyme. Very good condition, in leather binding and gold gilt-edged pages, housed in a custom-made collector's slipcase. [Attributes: First Edition]

BAXTER, Richard
1669. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. PURITAN Saints Everlasting Rest Richard Baxter Bible Devotional on HEAVEN "Lay siege to your sins, and starve them out by keeping away the food and fuel which is their maintenance and life." ― Richard Baxter Richard Baxter's "The Saints' Everlasting Rest" has long been recognized as one of the great classics of Christian devotion, and it is by this book that he is best known. This important text was written during a bout of extreme suffering from a debilitating illness, perhaps the inspiration for the work. In this work, Baxter identifies four different religious parties that would emerge - Moderate Presbyterians, Independents, Episcopals, and Erastians. Baxter wrote this book for his own personal enjoyment at a point when he was unemployed. Lowndes mentions this book, and all editions, to include the incredible frontispiece.

Extremely Rare 1669 First English Language Edition Of "An Embassy from the East-India Company By Johan Nieuhof The First Book About The Real China Many Illustrations LAST PRICE REDUCTION! A rare 1669 first English language edition of An Embassy from the East-India Company by Dutch author and explorer Johan Nieuhof, originally published in Dutch in 1665. Due to its tremendous success, several other editions were published that were heavily edited apparently for commercial reasons. It was then translated into French, German, Latin and English in 1665, 1666, 1668, and 1669 respectively. While the other versions were published by Van Meurs, the English version was published and translated by John Ogilby. The book, split into two parts and an appendix, contains notes and illustrations that Nieuhof made while he was a steward on Peter de Goyer and Jacob de Keizer's embassy to the emperor of China. It also contains a written account of the trip and 149 illustrations. The first part of the work contains details of the entire journey from Canton to Peking and back while the second part is a general overview of China. This book was important to the time because it was a unique source about China and its practices. The images were an important aspect of the book because they more accurately depicted the people of China versus the fantastical European illustrations from the past.

Milton, John
London: S. Simmons, 1669. First Edition. Fifth title page. Small quarto, 19th-century full olive pebbled morocco, gilt armorial crest on front cover (Macclesfield), raised bands, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. Housed in a custom clamshell box. With the arms of the Earls of Macclesfield in gilt on the front cover of the morocco binding by Hatton. Title page with a bit of soiling, skillful paper repairs to outer edge; a few minor marginal tears and repairs to corners of text, rarely touching border only, not text, which is generally clean. Morocco joints rubbed, binding sound and attractive. An exceptionally desirable copy with distinguished provenance from the collection of the Earls of Macclesfield, North Library at Shirburn Castle, renowned for its extensive holdings in the fields of science and early technology, history, travel and the military, John Dryden referred to Paradise Lost as "one of the greatest, most noble and sublime poems which either this age or nation has produced." Although the tremendously difficult circumstances under which Milton produced the work are legendary-- he had been blinded by long years of service as secretary under Cromwell and was in political disfavor after the restoration of Charles II-- the troubled printing history of the work is less well known. The publisher Samuel Simmons reluctantly agreed to print a small first edition of 1300 copies, as he was assuming a heavy risk in sponsoring an epic poem, for which no precedent in English publishing had been established. As payment for the first edition, Milton received a total of ten poun … [Click Below for Full Description]

Leases. With Two Alphabetical Tables. London: Printed by John Streater, James Flesher, And Henry Twyford, 1669. [xvi], 898, [18] pp. Folio (11-1/2" x 7-1/4"). Recent quarter morocco over cloth, gilt title to spine, endpapers renewed. A few nicks, negligible light rubbing to extremities. Light browning and occasional light foxing to text, light soiling, later library inkstamp and eighteenth-century owner signature and annotation to title page. $750. * Only edition. Active in the Protectorate, where he was Cromwell's legal advisor, Sheppard aimed to reform English common law. Ahead of his time in many ways, many of his proposals anticipate changes that were adopted in the nineteenth century, especially in the Juridicature acts of 1875-78. Sheppard is best-known for his work on real property due to his landmark treatise the Touch-Stone of Common Assurances, which was first published in 1648, and, to a lesser extent, The President of Presidents, which was first published in 1655. His work in this field continued during the Restoration period with The Law of Common Assurances, a treatise that combined a synthesis of his Touch-Stone with updated material and The Practical Counsellor in the Law, a handbook published in 1671.

Vischer, Georg M.:
(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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

DOCUMENTO MANUSCRITO. SIGLO XVII. CAPITULOS DE PAZ ENTRE INGLATERRA Y ARGEL. SEÑAL REAL DE LA REINA REGENTE MARIANA DE AUSTRIA
Sin editorial. En Madrid a 3 de Abril de 1669.- 6 hojas; In Folio (30 x 21 cm).- Al folio seis le falta todo un ángulo que afortumadamente coincide con la parte del mismo que está en blanco sin texto.- Es un documento muy interesante en el que aparecen artículo por artículo todos los detalles de este tratado de paz entre los ingleses y argelinos del siglo XVII, cuando los primeros estaban hostigando con su armada a la flota española y a todas las plazas que España poseía en el Mediterraneo africano y peninsular, incluído y sobre todo Gibraltar. Esto les daba mucha maniobra para poner en riesgo todas las posesiones españolas por los privilegios que adquirían en aguas mediterráneas, lo que disparó las alertas de la reina regente que intentó, a través de su Consejo de Guerra, poner todo el remedio posible para refuerzo y defensa de las posesiones españolas en esta zona. A modo de ejemplo transcribimos parcialmente los tres primeros artículos. Artículo 1: "Que de oy en adelante y para siempre jamas ayga buena y firme Paz entre SMgd de la Gran Bretaña y el Baxa Juan y Gon[zal]ez de Argel y los Dominios pertenecientes y que las naos y subditos de cada parte no se haran ofensa ni injuria entre unos ni otros tratandose con todo el respeto y amistad posible y que puedan las naos de dicho Rey de la Gran Bretaña o de alguno de sus subditos entrar libremente en el puerto de Argel y comerciar como en otros tiempos.".

BARTHOLIN (BARTHOLINUS), THOMAS. (+) CONRAD GESNER - TWO MAIN WORKS ON BIOLOGICAL LUMINISCENCE.
Hafniae (Copenhagen), Gociche, 1669. (Both works). Small 8vo. Bound in one contemp. full vellum. Contemp. handwritten titles on spine. First title-page printed in red/black. (24),531,(45) pp. + Gesner: (2),82,(20) pp. and 5 large textillustr (plants). Internally clean. ¶ Bartholin's work is the second edition (the first 1647) of the most outstanding work on luminescence of the seventeenth century, being the "second special treatise on the subject, and one from which many later writers copied... for it describes every luminescent phenomena known at that time whether real or imagined, organic or inorganic." (Harvey "A History of Luminiscence from the earliest times until 1900".Gesner's work which is here bound together with Bartholin's work (as it should be - the halftitle-page mentions both works), is also the second edition (first published 1555). It is "the first comprehensive review on light emitting plants (including fungi and also animals)... To Gesner belongs the honor of preparing the first book wholly devoted to luminiscence..." (Harvey).The intensive investigations in luminescence and phosphorescence in the 19th century eventually lead the way to the discovery of radioactivit by Becquerel in 1896.Gosch I: T. Bartholin, No 4.

This important text was written during a bout of extreme suffering from a debilitating illness, perhaps the inspiration for the work. In this work, Baxter identifies four different religious parties that would emerge – Moderate Presbyterians, Independents, Episcopals, and Erastians. Baxter wrote this book for his own personal enjoyment at a point when he was unemployed. Lowndes mentions this book, and all editions, to include the incredible frontispiece.

chez Jacques Cotin, A Paris 1669, in-12 (14,4x8,5cm), (24) 502pp., relié. Edition originale, une autre édition est parue à la même date chez Besongné. Livre relativement rare mais célèbre. Reliure en 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. - Photos sur www.Edition-originale.com -

Paris : Pierre le Petit, Jacques Langlois, Damien Foucault, Sébastien Mabre-Cramoisy. VERITABLE EDITION ORIGINALE TRES RARE DE L’UNE DES PLUS IMPORTANTES ORDONNANCES ROYALES DE L’HISTOIRE TOUCHANT LES EAUX ET FORETS.À l’époque le besoin de bois pour la construction des maisons et surtout des navires de guerre et commerciaux était tel que Colbert fut chargé par Louis XIV de réfléchir et de préparer un nouveau code forestier. La préparation de ce code dura 8 années de 1661 à 1669 ; il constitua l’un des documents essentiels de l’administration royale. Le corps des Maîtres des Eaux et Forêts pouvait désormais intervenir dans les forêts royales, ecclésiastiques et particulières ; les droits de pêche et de chasse étaient également refondus.À la suite de l’ordonnance figurent 5 Édits royaux sur la suppression d’offices, de maîtrises, de "verderies" et de "sergenteries" ainsi que sur l’érection de maîtrises notamment à Montmarault et à Cérilly dans le Bourbonnais.L’édition est ornée d’une vignette aux armes royales sur le titre, d’un bandeau et d’une lettrine, le tout gravé sur cuivre.Il parut peu avant une édition fautive et aujourd’hui introuvable à l’adresse de Frédéric Léonard, qui fut interdite en vertu d’un arrêt du conseil d’État du roi du 14 septembre 1669.Exemplaire habilement restauré.

Framboisiere Nicolas Abraham de la
Chez Iean-Baptiste de Ville, 1669. In folio (34,6x22,5 cm); (16), 977, (83) pp. Legatura seicentesca, probabilmente originale del volume, in piena pelle rimontata all'inizio del novecento. Uno strappetto senza perdita di carta alla terzultima carta, ininfluente. Leggeri aloni ai margini del testo, un tarletto al margine bianco delle prime dieci carte e al margine interno bianco di una trentina di pagine, ininfluenti e sempre lontani dal testo e per il resto, nel complesso in buone condizioni. Pecetta con nuovo editore applicata all'epoca sul frontespizio che definisce il passaggio della stampa dell'opera da A. Beaujollin e J. Carteron a Jean-Baptiste de Ville. L'opera infatti, iniziò ad esser stampata da beaujollin e Cateron non fu portata a termine dai due editori ma da De Ville. A causa di questo passaggio di stampatori il volume venne stampato in un numero ridotto di copie che ne fa oggi un'edizione particolarmente non comune. Bella scena animata al frontespizio incisa da N. Auroux. Frontespizio in rosso e nero. Testatine, iniziali e finalini xilografici.

PERRAULT, C.
Paris, Frederic Leonard, 1669. 4to (195 x 155mm). pp. 120, with woodcut title vignette and 5 large folded engraved plates. Old black gilt ornamented boards. First edition and second publication of a group of French anatomists called the 'Parisians'. "Perrault was the leader of a team of comparative anatomists, that included Guichard Joseph Duverney, Jean Pecquet, Moyse Charas and Philippe de la Hire; they were often called the 'Parisians' in contemporary literature because of their membership in the Académie Royale des Sciences. Their investigations began with a thresher shark and lion from the royal menagerie and went on to encompass forty-nine vertebrate species" (The Haskell F. Norman Library of Science & Medicine p. 610). The 'Parisians' laid the foundation of our knowledge of comparative anatomy. "No such detailed and exact descriptions and illustrations had been published before" (D.S.B). One plate with tear repaired on verso with no loss of illustration.Nissen ZBI, 3122.

" - Chez Gervinus Quentel [Elzevier], à Cologne [Amsterdam] 1669, in-16 (7,5x13,6cm), (20) 44, 287pp., relié. - Edition originale. Impression en caractères minuscules des presses des Elzevier. Exemplaire réglé. Reliure en plein maroquin rouge d'époque dit à la Du Seuil. Dos à nerfs orné à la grotesque. Pièce de titre et de tomaison en maroquin rouge. Plats ornés d'un triple filet d'encadrement répété, avec fleurons dans les écoinçons. Tranches dorées. Mors légèrement frottés, mais très bel exemplaire, fort rare dans cette condition exceptionnelle, en maroquin d'époque à la Du Seuil. Une édition plus tardive comporte 8 volumes, on lui a adjoint d'autres volumes sur les missions des jésuites à l'étranger, notamment en Chine et aux Indes, mais cette édition originale est bien parue en un seul volume, et son texte ne comporte pas de suite. Violent pamphlet dirigé contre les jésuites, cherchant par tous les moyens rhétoriques et historiques à abaisser la valeur et le rôle de la fameuse congrégation. L'histoire de l'ordre est de la sorte entièrement refondue afin de convaincre que les jésuites sont les ennemis du Christ et de la sainte religion, et que leur longue histoire n'est qu'une suite d'intrigues et de prises de pouvoir. Certains chapitres décrivent les agissements de l'ordre au Japon et dans d'autres pays étrangers où les jésuites ont installé des missions.

Berquen, Robert de

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.
