      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)

(Faltspuren geglättet, oberer weißer Papierrand außerhalb der Einfassungslinien alt angesetzt, sonst sehr gut erhalten). (aus: Gualdo Priorato: Historia di Leopoldo Cesare. Wien 1670-1674). * Zeitgenössischer Kupferstich nach der Vorlage von Merian 1667. Außerordentlich dekoratives und detailreiches Blatt: Die obere Ansicht zeigt blattbreit das Stadtpanorama von der Westseite zu Friedenszeiten "Munster avanti l'assedio", darunter die Darstellung der Belagerung ("Munster assediuto") vom 20. August bis 23. Oktober 1657 durch Bischof Bernhard von Galen. Unter der Darstellung ausführliche gestochene Beschreibung von A bis X und 1 bis 29. Nach dem Westfälischen Frieden (1648) hatte sich der Stadtrat bemüht, für Münster den Status einer Freien Reichsstadt zu erhalten (und dadurch nicht mehr dem Bischof von Münster, sondern nur noch dem Kaiser in Wien untertan zu sein). Dies führte zum Konflikt mit dem Bischof, der nun die Stadt mit verbündeten Truppen belagerte, heftig bombardierte und nach zwei Monaten eroberte. Galeazzo Gualdo Priorato (1606-1678) kämpfte im 30jähr. Krieg in verschiedenen Ländern unter Moritz v. Nassau gegen Spanier und Portugiesen und unter Wallenstein gegen die Schweden. Als bedeutender Zeitzeuge verfasste er mehrere Kriegschroniken und Kaiserbiographien, u.a. die dreibändige "Historia di Leopoldo Cesare", und wurde vom Kaiser Leopold zum Hofhistoriographen ernannt. (Faltspuren geglättet, oberer weißer Papierrand außerhalb der Einfassungslinien alt angesetzt, sonst sehr gut erhalten).

      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.

         [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).

      1670. Bulino, circa 1670, monogrammato in lastra in basso. Da un soggetto di Tiziano. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con sottili margini, leggere abrasioni nel margine superiore, per il resto in buono stato di conservazione. La stampa fa parte dell'opera Notomie di Tiziano dedicate all'Ill.mo Sig. Francesco Ghislieri, edita a Bologna tra il 1670 ed il 1680. Il frontespizio contiene il ritratto di Tiziano tra le foglie di alloro, il leone di San Marco, un drappo contenente la dedica. Seguono 17 incisioni anatomiche, 3 dello scheletro e 14 dei muscoli. Quattordici delle tavole sono tratte dal De humani corporis fabrica del Vesalio e le altre dalle Tabulae anatomicae VI, pure del Vesalio. Queste ultime in realtà non furono in realtà disegnate da Tiziano, bensì da Jan van Calcar, mentre per il primo gruppo la paternità è dubbia e controversa. Rara. Engraving, circa 1670, monogrammed in plate below. AfterTitian. Beautiful impressions, printed on contemporary laid paper, with thin margins, light abrasions in the top, otherwise in good condition. These works are part of Notomie di Tiziano dedicate all'Ill.mo Sig. Francesco Ghislieri published in Bologna between 1670 and 1680. The title page contains the portrait of Titian between the bay leaves, the lion of St. Mark, a cloth containing the dedication. Here are 17 anatomical engravings. Fourteen of the plates are taken from De humani corporis fabrica of Vesalius and the other from Tabulae anatomicae VI, also of Vesalius. These in fact were not actually designed by Titian, but by Jan van Calcar, while the first group paternity is uncertain and controversial. Rare.

        A Collection of English Proverbs, Digested into a convenient Method for the speedy finding any one upon occasion; with Short Annotations.... By J. R.

      Cambridge: John Hayes for W. Morden, 1670. 8vo (155 x 95 mm). [8], 296 pp. Title printed in red and black, woodcut initials, type ornament headpiece. Some soiling and discoloration, corners softened at front and back, a few small edge chips. Contemporary sheep, covers simply ruled with double blind fillets, no upper pastedown, lower pastedown from a 16th-century edition of a Latin patristic(?) text in two columns, with a small attached flap cut from the same edition (part of a metcalcut initial visible on its verso); speckled edges (corners bumped, gouges on rear cover, some old repairs to spine). Provenance: Robert S. Pirie, bookplate, sale Sotheby's NY, 2 Dec. 2015.*** First edition of an important proverb collection by the naturalist and theologian, containing numerous proverbs that were expurgated from later editions. Ray assembled his multilingual proverb collection over ten years, giving much thought to the principles of classification. In his preface to the reader he argues cogently in against a classification scheme based solely on the use of "heads" or subject categories, but also rejects a straight alphabetical arrangement, in favor of a system of classification by form: proverbial sentences (i.e., proverbs that are full sentences), proverbial phrases, proverbial similes, etc. Within each section the proverbs are alphabetically arranged by what we would now call keywords. At the end are several miscellaneous colllections, including a collection of Scottish proverbs adapted from David Ferguson. Ray's analyses of the proverbs' origins, and of the validity of those relating to health, husbandry, and other practical matters, reflect his rational scientific training. He traces many proverbs to Latin, Italian, Greek or French sources, which are cited and analyzed, making the book a fascinating read still today. Later editions were enlarged by readers' contributions, but some of the cruder or racier proverbs appeared only in this edition. This copy has an unusual printed waste pastedown with a flap from the same text, presumably on the sheet that was cut up by the binder, who did not bother to remove it. ESTC R13689; Wing R386; G. Keynes, John Ray, 10.

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

      Chez Jean Schipper. First edition of the French translation of Thomas Crane (the original was published in Dutch in 1651 and a German edition was printed in 1663), illustrated with a magisterial title frontispiece showing a dance ceremony on fire, three prints full screen and two mid-page (included in paging) and a folding plate consists of ten figures; these boards were made by Roger from his observations. Another edition was published the same year as The Theatre of idolatrerie, or The Open Door to reach the knowledge of the hidden paganism; the text is exactly the same.Binding slightly later (probably XVIII) "cartonnage" speckled vellum way back with five nerves with two old handwritten labels library. Headdresses bowed slightly, the slightly slotted head and a little lack in upper flat tail joints. Tt slip connected after Tt 2 and Tt 3 Tt 4 before.A label "of Mr. January Flainville firm" and the bookplate of the Library of Baron de Caix St. Aymour glued on the first contreplat. dated 1767 handwritten notes regarding the purchase of the book on the back of the first guard.rare and curious work on religious ceremonies and traditional witchcraft India, its author, "Protestant pastor, was embarked in 1640 for the East Indies, and remained tied almost six years as minister of the Gospel to the Dutch factorie of Palivent, on the Coromandel coast. He took advantage of his stay in this country so little known, to ascertain the purpose of the Hindus, and having had the pleasure of bonding with some Brahmins, he obtained valuable information on their belief and worship "(Caillet, Manuel bibliographic psychic or occult, 9560).This is the first known book of the Brahmins, the bulk of the book is also dedicated to them. Another section is dedicated to "One hundred proverbs Payen Barthrovherri" Sanskrit poet. The last chapter entitled "China extract illustrated by the Rev. A. Kirchere (sic)" and shows the work of the latter also devoted to Brahmins. As highlighted Devika Vijayan ( "Gods monsters of India: the negation of art in the discourse of French travelers in the East Indies (seventeenth century)," Viatica) at the time of publication of the book, no author became interested in Hinduism:"Roger was not wrong in these circumstances, to proclaim that he opened the doors of an unknown universe. His book is indeed rich new distinctions. He first discern the diversity of Shaiva sects and vichnouites, outlines the ten avatars of Vishnu god and present the Buddha as one of these avatars. It also recognizes that Hindus assert the sovereignty of a single God. It is also in The Open Door Roger iconography begins to take a distinctly Hindu color, as shown in the frontispiece, which reveals an effort by the designer to provide readers with a comprehensive picture of Hinduism, its religious customs and performances of his deities. At the top of the illustration is an Indian temple flanked by two Hindu deities, one of them being the elephant god Ganesh. Downstairs is represented party Jagannath. The statue of the god is placed on a trolley and the machine is in turn driven by the pilgrims. Unlike the usual posture of old travelers, the description of the gods is devoid of adjectives. Roger tends rather to observe, describe and refrain from judgment. "The researcher is also interested in Jesuit Athanasius Kircher, including Roger gets an extract of the book:"Equally known in his time Roger Abraham, the Jesuit Athanasius Kircher, in his China illustrata written in Latin, also deals with India as from Japan, but he has never visited these countries. The French translation appeared in 1670 in Amsterdam. It is undeniable that Kircher despised Indian paganism, but we look at it as an attempt to understand Hinduism without continuing to a simple description ridicule practices. It makes an attempt of comparative religion between Hinduism and Christianity and began a discussion of the philosophy of the Hindus "Beautiful copy of this rare book, the first to raise the Brahmins and their rituals.

        Pianta del Giardino del Eccel.mo Signor Principe Borghese fuori di Porta Pinciana

      1670. Veduta della città, da un soggetto di Giovanni Battista Falda che fu il primo a raffigurare i giochi e i "teatri" delle acque di Roma. Le tavole sono in controparte rispetto alle vedute del Falda; il Sandrart si avvalse dei suoi collaboratori Hans Ulrich Frank, Johannes Meyer e Suzanne Marie von Sandrart che le riprodussero accompagnandole con didascalie bilingui in tedesco e latino. Incisione in rame, in eccellente stato di conservazione. A nice view inspired to Giovanni Battista Falda's works, the first to depict the fountains and the water "theatre" in Rome. The plates are the counterparts of Falda's ones; in his job, Sandrart was helped by Hans Ulrich Frank, Johannes Meyer and Suzanne Marie von Sandrart, who reproduced the plates adding also bilingual captions, in Latin and German. Engraving, in excellent condition. Norimberga Nurnberg 372 285
