        La Porte ouverte, pour parvenir à la connoissance du paganisme caché

      - Chez Jean Schipper, à Paris 1670, in-4 (18x23,5cm), (16) 371pp. (5), relié. - Prima edizione della traduzione francese di Thomas Crane (l'originale è stato pubblicato in olandese nel 1651 e una edizione tedesca fu stampata nel 1663), illustrato con un titolo frontespizio magistrale che mostra una cerimonia di danza sul fuoco, tre stampe schermo intero e due metà pagina (escluso dalla paging) e una piastra di piegatura costituito da dieci cifre; queste schede sono state fatte da Roger dalle sue osservazioni. Un'altra edizione è stata pubblicata lo stesso anno di Il Teatro di idolatrerie, o The Open Door per raggiungere la conoscenza del paganesimo nascosta; il testo è esattamente lo stesso. Binding leggermente più tardi (probabilmente XVIII) di cartone aperta punteggiato pergamena via del ritorno con cinque nervi con due vecchia biblioteca etichette scritte a mano. Copricapi inchinò leggermente, la testa leggermente scanalato e un po 'la mancanza in mascelle di coda piane superiori. Tt slittamento collegato dopo Tt 2 e 3 Tt Tt 4 prima. Un'etichetta "di Mr. gennaio Flainville ferma" e l'ex libris della Biblioteca del barone de Caix San Aymour incollato sul primo contreplat. datato dal 1767 note scritte a mano per quanto riguarda l'acquisto del libro sul retro della prima guardia. lavoro raro e curioso sulle cerimonie religiose e la stregoneria tradizionale dell'India, il suo autore, "pastore protestante, è stato intrapreso nel 1640 per le Indie Orientali, ed è rimasta legata quasi sei anni come ministro del Vangelo al Factorie olandese di Palivent, sulla costa di Coromandel. Egli ha approfittato del suo soggiorno in questo paese così poco conosciuto, per accertare lo scopo degli indù, e avendo avuto il piacere di legame con alcuni bramini, ha ottenuto informazioni preziose sulla loro fede e di culto "(Caillet, Manuel bibliografica psichico o occulto, 9560). Questo è il libro prima nota dei bramini, la maggior parte del libro è dedicato anche a loro. Un'altra sezione è dedicata ai "Cento proverbi Payen Barthrovherri" sanscrito poeta. L'ultimo capitolo intitolato "La Cina estratto di illustrata dal Rev. A. Kirchere (sic)" e mostra il lavoro di questi ultimi anche dedicato alla bramini. Come evidenziato Devika Vijayan ( "dei mostri di India: la negazione dell'arte nel discorso dei viaggiatori francesi delle Indie Orientali (XVII secolo)," Viatica), al momento della pubblicazione del libro, nessun autore si è interessata nell'induismo: "Roger non era sbagliato in queste circostanze, a proclamare che ha aperto le porte di un universo sconosciuto. Il suo libro è infatti ricco di nuove distinzioni. In primo luogo ha discernere la diversità delle sette Shaiva e vichnouites, delinea i dieci avatar di Vishnu Dio e presentare il Buddha come uno di questi avatar. Riconosce inoltre che gli Indù affermare la sovranità di un unico Dio. E 'anche nell'iconografia Open Door Roger inizia a prendere un colore nettamente indù, come indicato nel frontespizio, che rivela uno sforzo da parte del progettista per fornire ai lettori un quadro completo di induismo, i suoi costumi religiosi e le prestazioni delle sue divinità. Nella parte superiore della figura è un tempio indiano affiancato da due divinità indù, uno dei quali è il dio elefante Ganesh. Al piano inferiore è partito rappresentato Jagannath. La statua del dio è posto su un carrello e la macchina è a sua volta guidato dai pellegrini. A differenza della consueta postura di vecchi viaggiatori, la descrizione degli dei è privo di aggettivi. Roger tende piuttosto ad osservare, descrivere e astenersi dal giudizio. " Il ricercatore è interessato a gesuita Athanasius Kircher anche, tra cui Roger ottiene un estratto del libro: "Altrettanto noto nel suo tempo Roger Abraham, il gesuita Athanasius Kircher, nella sua Cina illustrata scritto in latino, si occupa anche con l'India come dal Giappone, ma non ha mai visitato questi paesi. La traduzione francese è apparso nel 1670 ad Amsterdam. E 'innegabile che Kircher disprezzato il paganesimo indiano, ma ci guarda come un tentativo di comprendere l'induismo senza continuare ad una semplice descrizione delle pratiche ridicolo. Si fa un tentativo di religione comparata tra induismo e cristianesimo e ha iniziato una discussione sulla filosofia degli indù " Bellissimo esemplare di questa rara libro, il primo a sollevare i bramini ed i loro rituali. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale de la traduction française de Thomas la Grue (l'originale est parue en néerlandais en 1651 et une édition allemande a été imprimée en 1663), illustrée d'un magistral titre frontispice montrant une cérémonie de danse sur le feu, de trois gravures pleine page et de deux à mi-page (comprises dans la pagination) et d'une planche dépliante constituée de dix figures ; toutes ces planches ont été réalisées par Roger d'après ses observations. Une autre édition est parue la même année sous le titre Le Théâtre de l'idolatrerie, ou La Porte ouverte pour parvenir à la connoissance du paganisme caché ; le texte est exactement le même. Reliure légèrement postérieure (probablement XVIIIème) en plein cartonnage façon vélin moucheté, dos à cinq nerfs présentant deux étiquettes manuscrites anciennes de bibliothèque. Coiffes un peu frottées, celle de tête légèrement fendue et un petit manque en mors de queue du plat supérieur. Feuillet Tt relié après Tt2 et Tt4 avant Tt3. Une étiquette « du cabinet de M. Janvier de Flainville » et l'ex-libris de la Bibliothèque du Baron de Caix Saint-Aymour encollés sur le premier contreplat. Notes manuscrites datées de 1767 concernant l'achat de l'ouvrage au verso de la première garde. Ouvrage rare et curieux relatif aux cérémonies religieuses et aux maléfices traditionnels l'Inde, son auteur, « pasteur protestant, s'embarqua en 1640 pour les Indes orientales, et resta près de six ans attaché comme ministre de l'Evangile à la factorie hollandaise de Palivent, sur la côte de Coromandel. Il profita de son séjour dans cette contrée alors peu connue, pour s'instruire des usages des Hindous, et ayant eu le bonheur de se lier avec quelques brahmines, il en obtient des renseignements précieux sur leur croyance et leur culte » (Caillet, Manuel bibliographique des sciences psychiques ou occultes, 9560). Il s'agit du premier livre connu sur les Brahmanes, la majeure partie de l'ouvrage leur est d'ailleurs consacrée. Une autre section est dédiée aux « Cent proverbes du Payen Barthrovherri », poète sanscrit. Le dernier chapitre intitulé « Extrait de la Chine illustrée du Révérend Père A. Kirchere (sic) » et reprend l'ouvrage de ce dernier lui aussi consacré aux Brahmanes. Comme le souligne Devika Vijayan (« Dieux monstres de l'Inde : la négation de l'art dans le discours des voyageurs français aux Indes orientales (XVIIe siècle) ? », Viatica), au moment de la publication de l'ouvrage, aucun auteur ne s'est intéressé à l'hindouisme : « Roger n'a donc pas tort, dans ces circonstances, de proclamer qu'il a ouvert les portes d'un univers inconnu. Son livre est en effet riche de distinctions nouvelles. Il discerne d'abord la diversité des sectes shivaïtes et vichnouites, expose les dix avatars du dieu Vichnou et présente le Bouddha comme l'un de ces avatars. Il reconnaît également que les hindous affirment la souveraineté d'un Dieu seul et unique. C'est aussi dans La Porte ouverte de Roger que l'iconographie commence à prendre une couleur distinctement hindoue, comme le montre le frontispice, qui révèle un effort du dessinateur pour offrir aux lecteurs une image globale de l'hindouisme, de ses coutumes religieuses et des représentations de ses divinités. En haut de l'illustration se trouve un temple indien flanqué de deux divinités hindoues, l'une des deux étant le dieu éléphant Ganesh. En bas est représentée la fête de Jagannath. La statue de ce dieu est posée sur un chariot et la machine est à son tour tirée par des pèlerins. Contrairement à la posture habituelle des voyageurs d'antan, la description des dieux est dépourvue d'adjectifs qualificatifs. Roger tend plutôt à observer, à décrire et à s'abstenir de tout jugement. » La chercheuse s'intéresse également au jésuite Athanase Kircher, dont Roger reprend un extrait de l'ouvrage : « Tout aussi connu de son temps qu'Abraham Roger, le jésuite Athanase Kircher, dans sa China illustrata rédigée en latin, traite aussi de l'Inde comme du Japon, mais il ne s'est jamais rendu dans ces contrées. La traduction française paraît en 1670 à Amsterdam. Il est indéniable que Kircher méprisait le paganisme indien, mais nous observons chez lui aussi une tentative pour comprendre l'hindouisme sans en rester à une simple description qui ridiculiserait ses pratiques. Il procède à une tentative de religion comparée entre hindouisme et christianisme et entame une discussion sur la philosophie des hindous » Bel exemplaire de ce rare ouvrage, le tout premier à évoquer les Brahmanes et leurs rituels.

        Discours sur lhistoire universelle a Monseigneur le Dauphin: Pour expliquer la suite de la religion & les changemens des Empires. Premiere partie. Depuis le commencement du monde jusqu à lEmpire de Charlemagne.

      4. Mit gest. Titel-, Kopf- u. Schlußvignette sowie einer gest. Anfangsinitiale. 1 Bl., 561 S., 3 Bll., Ldr. d. Zt. a. 5 Bünden m. reicher Rückenverg., goldgepr. Rückentitel u. dreifarbigem Farbschnitt. Erstausgabe. - Diese Abhandlung über die Weltgeschichte' ist das letzte nennenswerte Unternehmen dieser Art Universalgeschichte, die mit dem hl. Augustinus beginnt und den Lauf der Menschheitsgeschichte als durchgehende Manifestation der göttlichen Vorsehung interpretiert, welche die Menschheit ihrem Seelenheil entgegenführt. Bossuet war der berühmte Hofprediger Ludwigs XIV., dessen gallikanische Kirchenpolitik er gegen die römische Kurie verteidigte. Seine Predigten, insbesondere seine großen Grabreden, sind eindrucksvolle Schaustücke dieses Genres der Barockliteratur. Er schrieb obigen Discours zur Unterweisung des Dauphin, dessen Erzieher er von 1670 bis 1679 war, denn, so erklärte er, die Geschichte ist der Ratgeber der Fürsten'. Das Buch reicht von der Schöpfung bis zu Karl dem Großen und liefert somit ein direktes Bindeglied zwischen der Geschichte des Auserwählten Volkes und dem Ursprung der französischen Monarchie die Verherrlichung des Absolutismus - Gott im Himmel, der König auf Erden - ist sein Leitmotiv, und Bossuet wurde denn auch gebührend mit der Verleihung eines Bistums belohnt. Bossuets theologische und eschatologische Konstruktion wurde von Voltaire zertrümmert, dessen Essai sur lHistoire' ursprünglich als vorgebliche Fortsetzung des Discours von der Zeit Karls des Großen bis zu Ludwig XIII. beabsichtigt war. Bossuets Einfluß ist jedoch in populären katholischen Geschichtsbüchern noch immer nachweisbar, und obwohl der Discours als historisches Dokument heute wertlos ist, kann man an ihm als einem edlen Stück klassischer französischer Prosa noch immer seine Freude haben (Bücher die die Welt verändern, S. 296f.). - Einband etw. berieben u. bestoßen.

        Comoediae undecim Graece et Latine, ut et fragmenta earum quae amissae sunt. [Editio novissima.]

      Amsterdam: Apud Joannem Ravesteinium 1670 - additional engraved title-page, lightly toned, a thin dampmark to fore-edge, tiny wormhole in lower margin of a few leaves, pp. [xxiv], 1087, [3], 60, 24mo, contemporary vellum boards, spine lettered in ink, a bit ruckled and soiled, two front endpapers sometime glued together (obscuring an eighteenth-century ink note) and since partly separated and partly torn, later ownership inscriptions to front pastedown, good. Lempriere calls it one of the best editions of Aristophanes; it is based on Scaliger's 1625 text but with additional notes and some of the Latin translations refreshed. It may in fact have been reset from a copy of the 1625, since the plays themselves are nearly a page-for-page reprint with the extra notes added on at the end. (Dibdin I 299)

This edition is the first to contain Fermat's observations on the Arithmetica of Diophantus, the first systematic treatise on algebra; it also contains (on H3r) the first statement of the celebrated "Last Theorem" which Fermat originally wrote by hand in the margins of his copy of Bachet's edition of Diophantus (1620). This theorem is the most famous problem in mathematics and remained unsolved for over 325 years until its recent solution by Andrew Wiles. But it should be remembered that Wiles was able to resort to sophisticated 20th-century techniques not available to Fermat. The exact form of Fermat's proof, if indeed he had a genuine one, thus remains one of the great unsolved puzzles of mathematics. The 1670 edition was published posthumously by Fermat's son Clement Samuel. It is based on his father's annotated copy of the Bachet edition of 1621 and contains a major part of Fermat's work on number theory, a branch of mathematics that he virtually created. A nice copy with the extremely rare errata leaf. ? Smith, Rara Arithmetica, p. 348.

      Oxford (Oxonii), E Theatro Sheldoniano, 1670. 8vo. (XV)(1),143(1);95(1),8 p. Calf 15.5 cm (Ref: Oldfather 175, see also 114; Ebert 6771; not in Hoffmann; only 2 copies in the British Libraries; cf. Brunet 2,1012, who mentions an edition of 1707) (Details: Back ruled gilt, and with 4 raised bands. Black morocco shield in second compartment. Boards ruled with double fillet borders. Greek text with facing Latin translation) (Condition: Cover scuffed and worn at the extremes. Head of the spine gone for 1 cm. Front joint beginning to split. Corners bumped) (Note: This book is the first publication for the market, i.e. 'real book', printed in the famous Sheldonian Theatre, which was named after the Chancellor of the University, and archbishop of Canterbury, Gilbert Sheldon. The building, a work of Christopher Wren, was completed in 1668. The Vice-Chancellor of the University John Fell 'the most powerful man on the University' in those days 'persuaded Sheldon that, when not in use, the building might be used for printing. Composing frames and presses, (no less than five, a large number then) all built locally, were moved in before the builders were out, late in 1668 or early 1669'. (N. Barker, 'The Oxford University Press and the spread of Learning, 1478-1978, Oxf., 1978, p. 15) In F. Madan's 'Oxford books, a bibliography of printed works relating to the University and City of Oxford, or printed or published there' (Oxford, 1895-1931) we found for 1670 only a few small occasional publications, e.g. some epicedia (funeral songs), or more or less internal University documents, such as the 'Parecbolae sive excerpta e corpore statutorum Universitatis Oxon. in usum juventutis academicae'. The only real book 'e Theatro Sheldoniano' in 1670 is this Epictetus/Cebes/Theophrastus edition. (Madan, vol. 3 (1931), no. 2853) For the previous year of 1669 Madan mentions only the imprint 'e theatro Sheldoniano' for the occasional poem of Corbet Owen, 'Carmen Pindaricum', a bad poem by the way, which was recited at the opening of the Theatre on the 9th of July 1669. In order to understand the following search for the identity of the editor of this anonymous 1670 edition, one should know that an expanded edition 'e Theatro Sheldoniano' was printed in 1680 (also anonymously), and another one in 1707. The 1707 edition mentions on its title an editor, 'C. Aldrich' (Carolus, Charles Aldrich), student of 'Christ Church'. Later bibliographers assumed that this same Aldrich must also have been responsible for the anonymous 1670 & 1680 editions. Now Aldrich's dates are 1681-1737. (See for Charles Aldrich 'A directory of the parochial libraries of the Church of England and the Church of Wales' by N.R. Ker & M. Perkins, London 2004, p. 235, s.v. Henley-On-Thames, where the story of his library is told) So, Charles Aldrich cannot have produced the edition of 1670, nor that one of 1680. He however gives us a clue to the identity of the editor of the 1680 edition. The real editor of the 1680 edition, we must conclude, is most probably the classical scholar, Dean of Christ Church, bishop of Oxford, John Fell, because Aldrich tells us on page a4-recto of his 'Ad Lectorem' that he 'minime deflexisse' from 'illa Felli editione' of 1680. This could mean of course 'from the edition of the University Press, led by John Fell', but this seems far fetched. More probable is that Aldrich refers to an Epictetus edition of 1680, which was produced by Fell himself. The name on the title of the 1707 edition caused later bibliographers (Fabricius/Harles, Bibliotheca Graeca, Hamburg, 1796, volume V, p. 80, but also Oldfather in his 'Bibliography of Epictetus', no's 114 and 117) to ascribe the 1670 and 1680 edition erroneously to Aldrich. As shown above, the almost certain editor of the 1680 edition is John Fell. On the title of the 1680 edition even the phrase on the title of 1670 'denuo recognita & notis illustrata' was copied. That it is a reprint (with the addition of passages from Prodicus and Cicero, not yet found in the first edition) of 1670 is proved by the reproduction in 1680 of the 1670 misprint of 'viderà' for 'videre' on page A4-verso of the preface. In the preface of 1670 it is admitted that the edition is based on earlier ones, especially those of Meric Casaubon and Salmasius, but the editor claims to have filled some 'lacunae' and to have corrected the Greek text and Latin translation (by Meric Casaubon, first published in 1659), not only with the help of the printed sources, but also by collating manuscripts from the Bodleian Library and the Library of the New College. (A3-verso) From the abundant notes of others he offers only an anthology (sylva), to eludicate some matters. These notes can be found at the end of the book, and they number only 8 pages. The notes are brief, for the editor says that he does not approve of voluminous books, stuffed with unnecessary knowledge. To underline his loathing he tells the reader that he left the job of compiling this 'sylva' of notes to a 'juvenis studiosus' who had plenty of time for that (cui otium magis suppetebat). (A3-verso & A4-recto) The tone of the writer of the preface is mature and very confident, he surely is a proud and advanced scholar. This leaves us in Oxford ca. 1670 with only one person, John Fell, 1625-1686, a great classical scholar, Dean of Christ Church, bishop of Oxford, and Architypographus of the University Press from 1672. He had a high reputation as a Grecian and a philologist, and published editions of Cyprian, Aratus, Theocritus, Athenagoras and other classical authors. (N. Barker, 'The Oxford University Press and the Spread of Learning', Oxf., 1978, p. 14-26; see also the 11th edition of the Encyclopaedia Britannica, s.v. John Fell) It is more than appropriate to assume that Fell produced the first 'real' book, be it for students, for the press of his University. For the founding of the revived Press of the University of Oxford was his work alone. Epictetus and the 2 other works in this volume have been repeatedly republished by the University Press, in 1680 and 1707 (already mentioned), but also in 1702, 1715, 1723, 1739 and 1804 (Madan, no. 2853) Madan tells about the misprint 'viderà' for 'videre' in the preface that it 'is perhaps in all copies corrected by hand'. Our copy apparantly escaped the attention of the corrector, for the misprint has not been corrected. This book seems to be extremely rare. We found only 5 copies in British Libraries, one in the British Library, 2 in the Bodleian, one in Cambridge University Library, and one in Sheffield. All British university libraries hold an electronic or microfilm copy of the book. They all ascribe this edition to Aldrich, except the British Library and the Bodleian. They mention John Fell. We searched in KVK for other copies, and we found only 2 other copies, one in the University Library Gent, and one in the Royal Library of Denmark. The copy of the 'Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin' is lost owing to 'Kriegsverlust'. We found not one copy auctioned in 'Americana Exchange') (Provenance: The front pastedown has once been renewed. Through the paper is vaguely visible a big bookplate) (Collation: A-Q8, R4) (Photographs on request)

      Andreas Fris, Amstelodami 1670 - Quarto. Two parts in one, as issued. General engraved title page, title and divisional title page with vignettes by Abraham Bloeteling, 39 numbered engravings, nine of which comprise large multi-folding plates extending nearly twice the height of the book. As well, 30 illustrations in text (11 are full-page). Contemporary vellum with ink label on spine, owner's inscription front pastedown dated 1820. Scarce FIRST EDITION of Kerckring's classic "Anatomical Gleaning," providing over 100 observations on various unusual topics in illustrative anatomy. The superb engraved title by Bloeteling shows a female dissector in classic dress, an unusual picturing, since very few (if any) women were allowed to participate in this profession in the 17th Century. Kerckring was the first to describe 'Kerckring's Ossicle,' an ossification in the occipital bone. Covers soiled, a remarkably preserved copy in original or contemporary binding. All plates as well as folding plates in near fine condition, occasional small tears, brown-toning and spotting. A most well-preserved copy of this important early treatise on human anatomy.

        Gran Cairo. Bologna, Longhi, 1670.

      1670. 945 x 620 mm. Engraved view on 2 sheets joined, letterpress text pasted below (4 columns in Italian, 4 columns in Latin: "Descrittione del gran Cairo [...] Cairi quae olim Babylon") with publisher's imprints. Watermark Panzano. Unrecorded in the standard bibliographies and without counterpart in western libraries, this unique, large-scale view of Cairo reflects the economic and cultural effervescence of the second-largest city in the Empire: 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. The Ottoman influence may be discerned in people's clothing in the foreground as well as in the city's architecture. On the river Nile, the map depicts numerous trade boats and sailors. 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. The letterpress text pasted under the engraving provides mostly historical and geographical information (in Italian and Latin). - Longhi's panorama seems to draw various aspects from previous works to create its own original representation of the Egyptian city. Indeed, it bears some resemblance to Braun and Hogenberg's 1572 "Cairos, quae olim Babylon, Aegypti maxima urbs", published in their famous "Civitates orbis terrarum". There are also similarities with Donato Bertelli's "La gran città del Cairo" (Venice 1575), as well as with the map of "Le Grand Caire" produced by the French soldier and traveller Henri de Beauveau (published in his "Relation journaliere du voyage du Levant", Nancy 1615). Ultimately, these plans probably all derive from a 1549 woodcut panorama credited to Matteo Pagano (or a Venetian engraving derived from it), as they all depict the city from the same viewpoint and on a similar scale. Longhi's map even takes up some of the ornaments of the Braun/Hogenberg map, such as the two people riding on a horse and a donkey in the foreground, though the antiquities as well as the numerous irrigation wheels are here shown in much greater detail. - According to scholars, Gioseffo (Giuseppe) Longhi (1620-91) issued a series of views of Italian and foreign cities between 1654 and 1674. A publisher, bookseller and archepiscopal printer, he was active in Bologna from 1650 to the time of his death. Not only did he publish maps, but he was also a prolific literary editor, notably publishing all the dramatic works of the Italian playwright Giacinto Cicognini. - Some small marginal tears repaired; slight marginal fraying to upper left. Cf. Tooley, Mapmakers III, 150 (for Giuseppe Longhi); Schulz, Venice 70 (for Arrigoni/Bertarelli).

        Simplicianischer Zweyköpffiger Ratio Status, lustig entworffen Unter der Histori des waidlichen König Saul, des sanfftmütigen König Davids, des getreuen Printzen Jonathae, und deß tapffern Generalissimi Joabi. Gestoch. Frontispiz, Titel, (3) S. Widmung, S. 6- 82 S. 4°. Pergamentbd d. späten 19. Jahrh. mit vergold. Rückenschild.

      Nürnberg, Wolf Eberhard Felßecker, 1670. - Erste Ausgabe der "antimachiavellistischen Staatsphilosophie auf der Basis biblischer Exempel" (Dünnhaupt), abgefasst in 6 "Discursen", wovon der letztere sich speziell an Leserinnen richtet. Grimmelshausen unterzieht vier biblische Gestalten einer religiös-theologisch fundierten Kritik. Jonathan, Saul, Joab und David werden, dem Grundsatz der "Zweiköpfigkeit", dem "Weiß und Schwarz" im 'Satyrischen Pilgram' folgend, als staatsmännisch handelnde Personen einander gegenübergestellt. Grimmelshausen preist, dem Zeitgeist folgend, das Gottvertrauen Davids als dauerndes Vorbild jeder Politik, gegenüber der sich die den "gottlosen Machiavellistischen Staatsregeln" folgende Handlungsweise Sauls als unwirksam erweist. "Das Werk wird im wesentlichen von einer Paraphrase der 1. Sam. 8-31 und 2. Sam. 3-24 berichteten Geschehnisse zusammen mit Zitaten aus Garzonis 'Piazza Universale' konstituiert . Die Anregung zur Abfassung der Schrift könnte die deutsche Übrsetzung von Malvezzis 'Davide perseguitato' (1638 und 1643) gegeben haben" (Weydt, 'Grimmelshausen', 1971, S. 104). Der 'Ratio Status' ist das zweite Werk Grimmelshausens, das offen unter dessen Namen veröffentlicht wurde. "The frontispice is undoubtedly designed by Grimmelshausen himself. This is the only Simplician work to which the author signed his real name" (Faber du Faur). Um so erstaunlicher ist, dass das Frontispiz weder in Scholtes Abhandlung 'Grimmelshausen und die Illustrationen seiner Werke' (1912) noch in seinem im selben Jahr erschienenen Werk 'Probleme der Grimmeslhausenforschung' eine Erwähnung findet und das Werk auch sonst bislang keine eingehende Untersuchung erfahren hat. In der Widmung an den Ansbachischen Hofrat Krafft von Crailsheim (1631-1705) wird auf die Werke des 'Samuel Greifnson vom Hirschfeld' verwiesen, speziell den 'Keuschen Joseph', den Krafft von Crailsheim gelobt habe. Hermann Kurz identifizierte daraufhin in der Rezension der Bearbeitung von Eduard von Bülow (1836) Grimmelshausen als Autor des 'Simplicissimus'. Die Widmung datiert "Rheinnec", einem Anagramm für Renichen (oder wie es heute heißt: Renchen) bei Offenburg. Nach seiner Tätigkeit als Gastwirt im "Silbernen Stern" zu Gaisbach (heute Oberkirch) wurde Grimmelshausen 1667 Schultheiß in Renchen. – Frontispiz angefalzt und mit kleinem, sauber restauriertem Einriss am Unterrand. Titel mit schwachem Fleck und verblasstem handschriftl. Eintrag. Nicht störend gebräunt, erste und letzte Lage etwas stärker. Seit dem Grisebach-Exemplar (Nr. 1121 im Katalog von 1898; versteigert 1930 in Berlin von Martin Breslauer) sind nur 4 Exemplare im deutschsprachigen Auktionshandel nachweisbar, davon eines (1991 bei Brandes) ohne Frontispiz. – VD17 23:233095F; Battafarano 6; Dünnhaupt 7; Bircher B 458; Faber du Faur 1163.

        The adventures of (Mr T. S.) an English merchant, taken prisoner by the Turks of Algiers, and carried into the inland countries of Africa: with a description of the kingdom of Algiers, of all the towns and places of note thereabouts. Whereunto is added a relation of the chief commodities of the countrey, and of the actions and manners of the people. Written first by the author, and fitted for the publick view by A. Roberts. London, (William Wilson and) Moses Pitt, 1670.

      1670. Small 8vo. (8), 252 [but 254], (2) pp. (includes final leaf of ads). Contemporary calf, rebacked. First edition of this extraordinary account of an Englishman's capture by Barbary pirates and subsequent adventures as a slave in Algeria. The narrative is framed as an authentic journal of a deceased traveller, prepared for the press by a friend of the departed. Through this mechanism the reader is taken into a proto-novelistic fantasy, albeit one that must have been informed by genuine experience of Eastern travel. As a slave under numerous masters the author tricks his way variously into employment as the 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 officer, collecting tribute money with the Algerian army and offers his services as an advisor to the Ottoman governor of Tlemcen. He recounts observations on the various peoples encountered and their customs and peculiarities, marvelling at flying serpents, lions and ostriches and skirmishing with an army of Arabs. Against a backdrop of mosques, minarets and palaces, the narrative is peppered with anecdotes of meetings with Barbary pirates, European renegados, and dalliances with alluring women of the Maghreb. - The author takes particular relish in recounting the details of his sexual adventures: "the women in this country keep much at home, but their minds and affections are more wandering abroad, because they are so recluse; whereas if they had as much liberty as in other countries they would not be so furiously debauch'd: their husbands keep strict guard over them, that when they can escape their eyes, they give the reins to their passion, and labour to satisfy themselves more abundantly; stolen waters are sweet: the more they are forbidden and hindered from variety, the more pleasure and satisfaction they fancy in it [...] had my design been to make conquests in the Empire of Love, I think none could have been more happy [...] this good opinion of my ability spread & increased wonderfully in the town [...]". A separate appended section offers directions for navigating the Barbary coast. The work is of value both as a travel narrative and as a proto-novel reflecting the European fascination with the Orient. This is one of four journeys undertaken by Englishmen in the Ottoman Mediterranean analysed recently by Gerald Maclean in his 2004 study "The rise of Oriental travel: English visitors to the Ottoman Empire, 1580-1720". - Provenance: small stamp of Bibliothèque Generale, Rabat, to title, first leaf of dedication, and first leaf of text. Small ownership stamp of Alexander Gardyne, 1883, to verso of title. Manuscript bookplate of Henry White, Lichfield, 1820, to pastedown. A very good copy. Playfair, Morocco, 244. Playfair, Algeria, 155. Pforzheimer, 846. Wing S152. Not in Blackmer or Atabey.

         [GUADELOUPE] Isle de la Guadeloupe située à 16 degrez de lat. septentrionale.

      Paris, Pierre Mariette, [1670]. 313 x 427 mm. Très belle carte de la Guadeloupe, gravée par Peyrounin. Tandis que la Basse Terre est très détaillée, seuls quelques noms figurent dans la Grande Terre, où il est écrit "Terre fort peu habitée des François". Les deux forts de la Basse Terre sont représentés : le Fort Saint-Pierre, construit en 1635, et le Fort Royal, situé à la pointe sud de l'île, érigé vers 1640 et renommé Fort Delgrès. Sont également mentionnés les logis du gouverneur, Charles Houël, et du sieur Trézel, qui créa la toute première sucrerie de la Guadeloupe. Au large de l'île, on peut voir les îles de la Désirade et de Marie Galante, ainsi que les îles de Houël, rebaptisées Terre de Haut et Terre de Bas. La carte est ornée d'une rose des vents. Reconnu comme le fondateur de la cartographie française, Nicolas Sanson quitta sa ville natale d'Abbeville pour Paris, où il rencontra Richelieu en 1627. Ce dernier, très impressionné par son oeuvre cartographique, le présenta au roi Louis XIII qui le nomma Géographe Ordinaire du Roi. Il fut le premier, en France, à concevoir un atlas mondial et publia près de trois cents cartes. Petites taches brunes, petite galerie de ver dans la marge supérieure. Contours aquarellés à l'époque.

        Historia et Meteorologia incendii Aetnaei anni 1669? Responsio ad censuras Rev. P. Honorati Fabri contra librum Auctoris De Vi percussionis. Reggio Calabria, Domenico Antonio Ferro, 1670

      Domenico Antonio Ferro, 1670. Small 4° (193x145 mm). [12] (including half title), 162, [1] pp. With the final errata leaf. At the beginning one folding plate viewing Etna eruption of 1669, engraved by Doria. Woodcuts in text. Bound in old vellum, edges sprinkled in red. Pastedowns and endpapers renewed. An excellent copy, slightly toned and soiled the half title. A few, light spotting on scattered leaves, mostly marginal. The rare first edition of the most significant 17th-century study of volcanology, with a fine plate depicting the great 1669 eruption. The work was written by Borelli during his stay in Messina, in behalf of the FlorentineAccademia del Cimento and of the secretary of the London Royal Society, Henry Oldenburg. The treatise offers not only a narrative description of the Etna eruption, but also systematic observations on the morphology of volcanoes, the nature and the causes of volcanic eruptivity, the generation and the structure of lava, disagreeding with the theories developed by Athanasius Kircher in the Mundus Subterraneus, and benefiting from the publication in 1669 of Steno?s De solido intro solidum (see item E). ?Borelli presented his own highly sophisticated understanding of a volcanic eruption as a geographical phenomenon which could be studied physically, chemically, and mathematically. His account of Etna?s most recent eruption explicitly critiqued a central argumeny put forth by the Jesuit Kircher in the Subterranean World. Using evidence from Etna?s lava flow and chancing morphology, Borelli negated the idea of eternal mountains and perpetual subterranean fires poetically evoked by Kircher? (P. Findlen, Agostino Scilla, p. 147). On September 1671 a review highly positive of the treatise appeared on the Philosophical Transactions, and Borelli observations were widely used by Serao in 1738 (see item 34) and Spallanzani in 1788 (see item 83).
