Oxford: for Jo. Crosley, and are to be sold in London, 1670. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. This book is a concise but thorough history of the Presbyterian Church. Peter Heylyn compares the beliefs and views of Calvinism to Presbyterian. In addition to these comparisons, we are given light to martyrs and other executions that occurred to help shape the Presbyterian Church. Many of the establishments of the Presbyterian Church throughout Great Britain were established in secret, which were no longer secret after this book was published! [Attributes: First Edition]

Drake Judith
1670. An Essay in Defence of the Female Sex Drake. first edition , Publié de manière anonyme et attribué auparavant à Mary Astell ou Jane Barker, l'essai est maintenant généralement crédité comme le travail de l'auteur et médecin Judith Drake (c.1670-1723), active dans le cadre d'un cercle intellectuel qui comprenait Astell et Lady Mary Wortley Montagu. Son mari était James Drake, membre de la Royal Society, médecin et écrivain sur la médecine et la politique; son nom est donné aux versets élogieux qui introduisent le présent ouvrage. Judith terminé, édité, et a publié son opus médical posthume Anthropologia Nova en 1707. L'essai est maintenant considéré comme "l'une des contributions anglaises les plus significatives au début du débat moderne concernant les femmes" (Smith, p. 727). Écrit sous la forme d'une lettre à une amie, "le tract défendait vigoureusement et avec esprit les capacités intellectuelles et le caractère féminins. Drake s'est inspiré de l'essai de John Locke sur la compréhension humaine pour construire un cadre rationaliste sur lequel argumenter qu'il s'agissait de coutumes et de langage. qui a engendré la croyance que les femmes étaient intellectuellement inférieures aux hommes. Drake a ensuite rejeté le culte des anciens et, à leur place, a défendu la valeur de l'apprentissage «moderne» et la valeur de l'éducation à l'information pour les femmes. Drake a soudé l'épistémologie rationaliste à 'féministe' L'argument était d'une originalité particulière dans le contexte des premiers écrits modernes en faveur des femmes.

Zesen, Philipp v.
Amsterdam, Kristian von Hagen, 1670. Erste Ausgabe, sehr selten. "Zesen verbindet hier die biblische Josephslegende mit den Elementen des höfischen Staats- und Liebesromans Zesens Vorrede bietet wichtige Aussagen zur barocken Romantheorie" (Dünnhaupt). Hier versucht Zesen abermals eine neue Romanform, diesmal eine Variante des 'Staatsromans', zu etablieren. "In der biblisch verbürgten, somit 'wahren' (nicht bloß wahrscheinlichen) Geschichte Josephs in Ägypten wird, fast fürstenspiegelartig, die Idealgestalt eines absoluten Herrschers (der zgl. Präfiguration Christi ist) vorgestellt. Stilistisch neu ist in der 'Assenat' Zesens 'kurtzbündiger' parataktischer, stakkatoartiger Satzbau, der sich bewußt vom zeitgenöss. Periodenbau absetzt" (Killy). Die "kurtzbündigen Anmärkungen", eine Schatzkammer barocken Wissens, "verarbeiten vor allem mythologische Details und berichten . über die Kultur und Religion der Ägypter, exotisch-kultische Bräuche bei Hochzeiten, Aufzügen und Einbalsamierungen und über Pflanzen und Tierwelt" (KNLL). Assenat, die Tochter Potiphars, heiratet den "keuschen Joseph", der der Verführung durch Potiphars Weib Sefira widerstand und Vizekönig wird, ein vorbildlicher Herrscher im Sinn eines christlichen Stoizismus. Im Gegensatz zu vielen heroisch-galanten Romanen des Hochbarock wird in 'Assenat' Weitschweifigkeit der Handlungsführung meist vermieden. "Zesen verwendet eine streng stilisierte Prosa, die 'lakonische Rede': zumeist kurze, parataktisch gereihte Hauptsätze" (KNLL). Die Kupfer werden hoch gelobt, sie "gehören zu den besten des 17.

LONGHI, Gioseffo.
Gran Cairo.With: (2) Alessandria.Bologna, Longhi, 1670 [and 1670s]. 94.5 × 62 cm, 106.5 × 57.8 cm. Engraved views, each on 2 sheets joined; letterpress text pasted below with publisher's imprint. Both views matted, framed and glazed. Unrecorded in the standard bibliographies and without counterpart in western libraries: unique, large-scale views of Cairo and Alexandria. The Muslim influence may be discerned in the people's clothing in the foreground as well as in both cities' architecture. On the river Nile, the views depict numerous trade boats and sailors. The Italian (and, in the case of Cairo, Latin) letterpress text pasted under the engraving provides mostly historical and geographical information.Under Ottoman rule since 1517 and having expanded south and west from its nucleus around the Citadel, Cairo in the latter half of the 17th century was second only to Constantinople, and the view reflects the economic and cultural effervescence of the second-largest city in the Empire. To the left are soldiers battling as part of a tournament; on the right are the Sphinx (wearing a necklace!) and the famous pyramids of Giza: those of Khufu, Khafre, and Menkaure, as well as the smaller pyramids. The centre of the city shows numerous mosques and gardens.Formerly the most powerful city of the ancient world after Rome, Alexandria came under Ottoman rule in 1517 and subsequently lost much of its importance to the new port of Rashid (Rosette), 40 miles east, though it would regain some of its former prominence with the construction of the Mahmoudiyah Canal in 1807.

ROBERTS, A.
The adventures of (Mr T. S.) an English merchant, taken prisoner by the Turks of Argiers, and carried into the inland countries of Africa.London, Moses Pitt [printed by William Wilson?], 1670. Small 8vo. Blind- and gold-tooled calf (ca. 1800). [8], "252" [= 254], [2] pp. First edition of an extraordinary account of an English merchant mariner's capture by Barbary pirates in or soon after 1648 and his subsequent adventures as a slave in Algeria. It is presented as an authentic journal of T[homas?] S[mith?], posthumously prepared for the press by his friend A. Roberts. The author is certainly well-informed on the Ottomans in Africa and his story may be partly based on true events, but many of the details are clearly fantasy, with monstrous beasts and people turned to stone, in addition to tall tales of his own adventures. In the story he sets off from the Thames in the Hamburg merchant ship Sancta Maria in July 1648 and the ship is captured by Barbary pirates soon after. As a slave under numerous masters the author tricks his way into employment as cook to the King of Algiers, is then demoted to keeper of the King's bath and secretly fathers a daughter with one of the King's wives. After an unsuccessful stint as a gardener's assistant he journeys in the service of an Ottoman officer, collecting tribute money with the Algerian army, and offers his services as an advisor to the Ottoman governor of Tlemcen (northwest Algeria). With an owner's initials, manuscript bookplates and library stamps. In good condition, very slightly browned and with a small chip at the head of two leav … [Click Below for Full Description]

Disbound, preserving the original endpapers. [18] ll. Rare first and only edition of the German translation of the account of the expedition against the Kingdom of Makassar in the years 1666 to 1669, under command of Cornelis Speelman (1628-1684) on behalf of the Dutch East India Company (VOC). The work was translated from the original Dutch published at Amsterdam in 1669. Speelman, a Dutch admiral and governor-general of the VOC, lead the expedition against the Sultan of Gowa (= Makassar), together with Radjah Palacca, King of the Bougainese, aiming to keep trade with Makassar exclusive to the Dutch.

The sultan was defeated and submitted to VOC control with the treaty of Bungaya (18 November 1668).Without the engraved map included in some copies.

Small 4to (19 x 14 cm). With the woodcut coat of arms of the dedicatee Juan Fernández de Velasco, Duke of Frías, on the title-page. Mottled tanned sheepskin (ca. 1800?), gold-tooled spine. [16], 176 pp. Rare second printing (rarely distinguished from the more common first edition of 1603) of an important Spanish account of King Sebastião I of Portugal's ill-fated 1578 invasion of Moroccan and his death in battle, copying the 1603 edition's imprint, date, woodcut arms on the title-page and even the typesetting errors and list of errata. King Sebastião I of Portugal (1554-1578) inherited the crown at age three after the death of his grandfather João III. Educated by Jesuits, he combined religious fanaticism with an unbounded admiration for the military, presenting himself as a Christian knight who would fight the "misguided" Muslims in Africa and rescue them from their faith. He got his chance when the deposed Moroccan Sultan Abu Abdallah Mohammed II asked for his help. In 1578 Sebastião invaded Morocco with a large and expensive force, joined by Abu Abdallah's army of Moors and other Muslim opponents of the Sultan Ahmad al-Mansur. Although Ahmad died during the invasion, Sebastião's inexperience and rash attack in the bloody and disastrous Battle of the Three Kings at Alcazarquiv … [Click Below for Full Description]

They show the following (outdoor and indoor scenes):1) 2 warriors on horseback, one of whom has just beheaded the other and carries his head away (the beheaded warrior has not yet fallen from his horse), while his superior watches on horseback with 2 attendants.2) a man standing with a spear in the prow of a boat, while 2 men and a woman sit at a tea table in the boat, which flies a flag and pennant.3) 5 people on 2 boats, one flying a flag and pennant.4) 4 soldiers bringing a woman to a dignitary at his house.5) a delegation visiting a dignitary.6) 2 men playing go, with 4 attendants and a guard.7) a dignitary at a writing table, with attendants and visitors.8) a seated dignitary with 6 standing figures, 1 with a doc … [Click Below for Full Description]

With engraved title-page, engraved authors portrait, large folding engraved map of China, 34 double-page engraved plates and views, and 110 half-page engraved illustrations in text, all in fine and strong impressions. The coats of arms of Spiegel and Witsen, apparently optional elements in the preliminaries of the Dutch, French and Latin editions, are not present. Contemporary blind-tooled vellum. [8], 208, 258, [10] pp. Third edition, in the original Dutch, of "the definitive account" (Howgego) of the embassy that the VOC (Dutch East India Company) sent to the Emperor of China, the entire trip occupying the years 1655 to 1657. Nieuhof's eyewitness account, first published in 1665, was the first extensively illustrated book describing China and is, among works on China, "bis heute eines der bedeutendsten und gesuchtesten" (Walravens). The second part gives a general description of the Chinese empire, including botany and zoology. The first part covers the East Indies and Southeast Asia before going on to China itself. Japan, Korea and Formosa appear as well.Nieuhof served as steward, artist and chronicler on Pieter de Goyer and Jacob de Keyzer's VOC embassy to the Chinese Emperor. The party got a more intimate view of China than almost any other Dutch visitors of the 17th century, and the breadth of Nieuhof's interests and the large number of drawings he made provided a wealth of new material that makes … [Click Below for Full Description]

Dat is, hemelsche circulen en uuren-linien, hoe men de selve aen de opgerechte plattingen of muren... afteyckenen en vertoonen zal.Amsterdam, Johannes van Ravesteyn, 1670. 4to. With a small woodcut device on title-page and 84 mostly engraved mathematical figures in the text. Modern grey paper boards. [18], 186 pp. First edition of the Dutch translation of a well-known work on sundials by the German astronomer Bartholomäus Schultz (1540-1614). The original German, entitled Gnomonice de Solariis ... Von allerley Solarien, dast ist, Himmlischen Circuln und Uhren... was first published in 1572 at Leipzig. Schultz discusses sundials on flat surfaces, on the insides of cubes, prisms (six-sided ones) and pyramids, and, finally, on the insides of spheres, cones and cylinders. According to Sotheran, the work is especially interesting for Scultetus's transversal division on the circle, which was afterwards applied by Tycho Brahe on his quadrant. The engraved illustrations were made especially for the present Dutch translation, the German edition was illustrated with woodcuts. With a few faint, marginal water stains, otherwise in very good condition. Bierens de Haan 4267; Poggendorf II, col. 883; Sotheran, Second Suppl. 4207; Zinner, Astron. Instrumente, pp. 532-533.

Cette édition est donnée, par Bamberger, comme plus exacte que les précédentes et son latin de meilleure qualité, sans les fautes reprises dans les précédents tirages. Spinoza publia son chef d’oeuvre anonymement et sous une adresse fictive, l'éditeur réel étant Jean Riewerts à Amsterdam. À la suite des violentes polémiques suscitées par la parution de son livre, Spinoza décida ne plus rien publier de son vivant. (Bamberger, 1961, p. 24–55 (T.5). Kingma & Offenberg, n° 7 p. 10-11.

ROBERTS, A.
The adventures of (Mr T. S.) an English merchant, taken prisoner by the Turks of Argiers, and carried into the inland countries of Africa.London, Moses Pitt [printed by William Wilson?], 1670. Small 8vo. Blind- and gold-tooled calf (ca. 1800). [8], "252" [= 254], [2] pp. First edition of an extraordinary account of an English merchant mariner's capture by Barbary pirates in or soon after 1648 and his subsequent adventures as a slave in Algeria. It is presented as an authentic journal of T[homas?] S[mith?], posthumously prepared for the press by his friend A. Roberts. The author is certainly well-informed on the Ottomans in Africa and his story may be partly based on true events, but many of the details are clearly fantasy, with monstrous beasts and people turned to stone, in addition to tall tales of his own adventures. In the story he sets off from the Thames in the Hamburg merchant ship Sancta Maria in July 1648 and the ship is captured by Barbary pirates soon after. As a slave under numerous masters the author tricks his way into employment as cook to the King of Algiers, is then demoted to keeper of the King's bath and secretly fathers a daughter with one of the King's wives. After an unsuccessful stint as a gardener's assistant he journeys in the service of an Ottoman officer, collecting tribute money with the Algerian army, and offers his services as an advisor to the Ottoman governor of Tlemcen (northwest Algeria). With an owner's initials, manuscript bookplates and library stamps. In good condition, very slightly browned and with a small chip at the head of two leav … [Click Below for Full Description]

Rare first and only edition of the German translation of the account of the expedition against the Kingdom of Makassar in the years 1666 to 1669, under command of Cornelis Speelman (1628-1684) on behalf of the Dutch East India Company (VOC). The work was translated from the original Dutch published at Amsterdam in 1669. Speelman, a Dutch admiral and governor-general of the VOC, lead the expedition against the Sultan of Gowa (= Makassar), together with Radjah Palacca, King of the Bougainese, aiming to keep trade with Makassar exclusive to the Dutch.

Small 4to (19 x 14 cm). With the woodcut coat of arms of the dedicatee Juan Fernández de Velasco, Duke of Frías, on the title-page. Mottled tanned sheepskin (ca. 1800?), gold-tooled spine. [16], 176 pp. Rare second printing (rarely distinguished from the more common first edition of 1603) of an important Spanish account of King Sebastião I of Portugal's ill-fated 1578 invasion of Moroccan and his death in battle, copying the 1603 edition's imprint, date, woodcut arms on the title-page and even the typesetting errors and list of errata. King Sebastião I of Portugal (1554-1578) inherited the crown at age three after the death of his grandfather João III. Educated by Jesuits, he combined religious fanaticism with an unbounded admiration for the military, presenting himself as a Christian knight who would fight the "misguided" Muslims in Africa and rescue them from their faith. He got his chance when the deposed Moroccan Sultan Abu Abdallah Mohammed II asked for his help. In 1578 Sebastião invaded Morocco with a large and expensive force, joined by Abu Abdallah's army of Moors and other Muslim opponents of the Sultan Ahmad al-Mansur. Although Ahmad died during the invasion, Sebastião's inexperience and rash attack in the bloody and disastrous Battle of the Three Kings at Alcazarquiv … [Click Below for Full Description]

Konvolut Dokumente 1537-1670 über Ommersheim (Mandelbachtal), ins. 34 Seiten
Saarbrücken, Blieskastel u.a. 1537-1670. Deutsche Handschriften auf Papier, datiert 1537-1670 (vorliegend in meist zeitnahen Abschriften). Ins. 34 Folio-Seiten. -- Zustand: Papier etwas gebräunt und fleckig, mit leichten Randschäden, bei einem Dokument sind Einrisse mit Klebestreifen repariert. Ins. guter Zustand. Über die Geschichte von Ommersheim im 15.-17. Jh. (Quelle: wikipedia): Um 1550: Die weltliche Herrschaft über Ommersheim lag bei den Grafen von Nassau-Saarbrücken und dem Junker von Steinkallenfels an der Nahe. 1563: Wie im Konzil von Trier (1545 bis 1563) beschlossen, wurde in der Pfarrei Ommersheim erstmals ein Tauf-, Ehe- und Sterberegister eingeführt. Zur Pfarrgemeinde Ommersheim gehörten St. Ingbert, Hassel, Rohrbach, Spiesen, Heckendalheim, Oberwürzbach, Aßweiler, Seelbach und Wecklingen. Aus der Zeit vor dem Dreißigjährigen Krieg ist ein Dokument überliefert, das die Einwohner der "Meygerie zu Omersheim" namentlich verzeichnet. Um das Jahr 1543 zählte Ommersheim demzufolge sechs Haushalte, die wie folgt benannt sind: Nickel Huffen, Hannsen Son, Mathern, Jakob Schneider, Der Schumacher, Veltin Scheffer, Annstet. Die glückliche Überlieferung jener Namen kann einer steuerlichen Erhebung verdankt werden, die die Grafen von Nassau-Saarbrücken wegen eines anstehenden Feldzugs gegen die Türken durchführten. 1553 wütete der "schwarze Tod" (die Pest) im Bliesgau. In den Jahren von 1573 und 1574 wurde die Gegend nochmals von der Pest heimgesucht. 1618 bis 1648, im Dreißigjährigen Krieg, herrschten Not und Zerstörung. Der Landstrich wurde besonders von den Schweden ve … [Click Below for Full Description]

Silvestre, Israel (1621-1691)
Paris, 1670. Israel Silvestre (Francia, 1621-1691) el Joven, para distinguirle de su padre, fue un delineante, grabador, editor y comerciante de grabados que se especializó en las vistas topográficas y perspectivas de construcciones importantes. Quedó huérfano a temprana edad, y siendo sobrino de Israel Henriet (amigo de Jacques Callot), éste se encargó de su educación.   Se convirtió en un prolífico grabador, realizando grandes cantidades de vistas de Francia, España e Italia, por donde viajó entre los años 1630 y 1650. Heredó las planchas de su tío, que contaban entre ellas con los trabajos de Callot y Stefano della Bella, los cuales influenciaron enormemente en su trabajo y estilo. En 1663 obtuvo el cargo de Dibujante y Grabador del Rey y en 1670 ingresó en la Academia Parisina de Pintura y Escultura, y en 1668 se le concedió el honor de alojarse en la Galería del Louvre y se han realizado re-estampaciones modernas  del siglo XX  de algunas de sus estampas más conocidas, (normalmente tienen el sello en seco del museo).   Sus estampas se vendieron tanto individualmente como en series, y su trabajo, sobre todo sus vistas venecianas de la década de 1660, influenció enormemente a los pintores del siglo XVIII de las Vedute, como Luca Carlevaris o Canaletto, que adoptaron sus composiciones. Cabe resaltar que Silvestre es todo un siglo anterior a Giovanni Battista Piranesi (1720-1778). Hoy día sus planchas pueden encontrarse en el Louvre.   Concretamente, contamos con diversas colecciones de sus  vistas mas importantes de Italia, Francia e incluso de las raras vistas realizadas … [Click Below for Full Description]
